"In short-a firm resolution as to essentials and an open mind as to secondary matters." In leading up to his conclusion the correspondent says: Differences Diminish "The more the British point of view is understood, the more it will commend itself to impartial opinion. The closer we look at the question from the American angle, the more differences are likely to be diminished. "We are dealing with the world as it still is, and, so far as the freedom-of the seas interferes with the protection of our vital interests is concerned, it means a one-eided disarmament.

Ross' round by a wide i "'^ audience on the subject urg- ' mg them to buy all the Thrift stamps possible. Now that the war is over, people may not feel the same enthusiasm they would have had, had the stamp appeared earlier but the Government needs the money now just as much as before the war, as the men over there will have to be fed, their salary paid and be brought liome. also the government needs money to loan to those who go back to the land to help give them a start again. These men have given their all for us. Many have died for us that the principles of democracy may live and it is our place now to sacrifice and pledge every quarter we can. Here is an opportunity tor G. R. Marno'ch, president of the Lethbridge board of' trade, to get in some of his magnificent work he put into the Victory Loan for Southern Alberta and with Mr. Baalim and Mr. Gibbons they should put Lethbridge again to the front in this Thrift Stamp movement. President Wood of. tlie U. F. A. is another person to push this movement before the farmers and make them realize,the importance of contributing every quarter .they can. This is an margin. Round Two-Tait lunged a heavy right swing on Ross' nose and Ross started bleeding. Ross then smashed his left to Tait's face and both men were bleeding. Both men went into a clinch, and before "Cappy" had called "break" Tait bad landed heavily on Ross' nose and bOdy. Round even, if anything a shade to Tait. Round Three-Ross went right after Tait with his left and swung five heavy ones before he recovered himself. Tait seemed helpless against Ross' heavy attack and the sound of the gong saw Tait nearly in. Great dispute then arose when it was found the gong had rung 30 seconds ahead of time. This lost Ross his best chance of a knockout. Ross' round easily. Round Four-Ross landed heavily with his left on Tait's face, but Clonle retaliated with two swift ones to Ross jaw. At this point both men were bleeding profusely from the nose and seemed all In. Simultaneously Ross and Tait both started an attack and a series of clinching and rushes kept the fans going for about two minutes.

All bouts were no decision and left to the press to decide. A good-sized crowd turned out to see the fight and were all satisfied with the bouts: The Ross-Talt fight and the Landers-Woods battles were easily two of the fastest and most exciting yet seen in the city. their love for their country and for the men over there who have accepted the supreme sacrifice for God, for country and for humanity. . WILLIAM N. MERRIAM. ARMY BOXING BOUTS LONDON, Dec. 12.-In addition to the other bouts In the interallied boxing tournament, which were reported, F. C. Laney, of the American navy, defeated Corp. Biiigham. of Canada. Both men were feathenweights. Eddie Coulon, of the American army, beat .T. Davies of the British navy, in a featherweight bout. Lightweight Gamester, of the British Royti.l Air Force, defeated Eddie Shannon, of the American army. C. M.

In England eve'rything was done for the soldier boy, no matter what nationality if only he bejonged to an allied nation. . "Over There" it did seem as though we all belonged to one big family of nations. Now I come into Canada within two months after my return to America and read this article by Mr. Gadsby with amazement and indignation. Indignant because I know it, does not reflect the ideas of the Canadian, British or American soldier to^vard the French nor toward each other. Neither does it, I am sure, reflect the attitude o� any of their people, nor are the French so rapacioufi as described by Mr. Gadsby. , The great re-construction time is'be-forus. The most critical time of all To smother our desire for revenge, to have to feed, those whom we loath, hate and despise, at our own deprivation, to keep down Bolshevism, an archy and the hydra-headed other evils that dally arise. To be just to the enemy and just to_ ourselves, demands all the Christian spirit within us. Ours is to make for this big good. At the great -Peace Conference at Paris it is going to be no easy matter for the several nations assembled to submerge national aspirations, ambitions and desires, keep out greed, envy and malice, consider other nations, adversions, ambitions and desires when they come into conflict with our own, and give away when necessary with good grace for the benefit of all for the "Good of Democracy." All this will require international altruism. If Mr. Gadsby's letter does any of these things I fail to see it. Perhaps if his article were printed in but a single newspaper it would be of small matter, though such sentiments as those expressed should be rebuked at all times. Should it be, however, a syndicated letter~whlch I strongly suspect it is, appearing as. it will In thirty or forty newspapers throughout Canada and the Unite^ States it might do infinite harm with its innuendoes, mls-leadlng statements and patronizing air, so enraging to the: people of the United States. His article smacks so of Ger-mart propaganda I am tempted to send it to the' proper authorities. Such a|' letter is good moat to the long haired Gerinan pacifist, Bolshevlkl, anarchist, and their like who have led the un enllghteiied Russian on to madness; Russia, our one time frleind. and will Mr. Gadsby consider why the Unite j: States w^s such a friend of Russia.
