Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 14, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SA'riJRDAY, DECEMBER M, 1918 I THE LETHflflrDGi: DAILY HERALD PAGE ELEVEN Whit religion will the. ^returjiied eoldler bring buck? Has lie any Jielon'>at all? Theiclasslc story at tbn frbiVt i'j tiiat Bill says to Tom' "If youi' number's on it you get it and thall'-s all there's to it. Yon don't (lie before your llmo." To vVhleh Tom replioa "Well }( that's so go and bring in that Ger-' man,helmet oiit there in No Man's-I^and." Of course Bill renega. He does not eprlng over thn top and say "Here g'oes nothing." His fatalism does not take him tliat far. Predestination has ''Its limits. Onc'p doom ovortakea one. One does not go oiit to meet it. As a matter of fact Bill's fatalism Is a bluff. So are his ribald songs, his loose stories' and bis sanguinary language. With them he masks a great I'ait^ and u firm hold on tho verities. He has spent many an honest hour questlonhig ills soul wltli Death only R dozen steps away aird he has come to certain inevitable ' conclusions. Those conclusions are his religion- they bring him wlthlji touc^hing distance of The SeiTBon on the Mount. His religion is not one of metaphysics and dogmas-it is one of deeds. Service Is Its root. Out of this welter of hate and bloo(l Bill has formed his idea of God-and that God .is a God of love, hot the German 'God who la the slanghter-Btalned Odin, renamed for adyertlaing purpoaesi';the State. Bill's God is not the Kaiser's God-hot the God of that irned b'.^came^ v/^rth j'opeWtih^Kf0]j! i;the� flrat j;. re-, time Jii'^tAyo tlibusaha'yearai|'|>iu' aiid m'lllJdhs- of o'brfCTire, da,vl6'ufit"ilkfe iiim tobk up tiie cross to rescu^ijlffljl con nrm the'Brptherhooh of ltfan^';fh loved pb much that tliey submitted to be cr'ucUii?u',t'6iv us.'

And they wcre4 cr-�iclHoa for like reasnns--for love. Parliament who, uses the last part of a sentence to balance the first-the idea, being to preserve a stable equilibrium which vifiU offend nobody-becomes a dwindling figure as soon us the returned soidi6r vote gets Its work in. The church too needs to see that its sheep's clothing is not used by rich wolves In the powe. Church member-sh'lp will not be the fashionable cloak for greed and hypocrisy that it was to share everything wltli his comrades except perhaps hlB love affairs. ' I do not bplleve ^lai he will clamor for t)ha .sQclaMzafton of , industry in Canada. tWtifs'noi Ma ju^u,-' His notion-'ibOpet&Upu is a lively jsym-pathy between feitfpli'jyi'r and employed -a considerate taBkmij.-^ who will assign a fair task, and pay a fair wage whifch will''include a margin tor old age and unemployment.

Bill's Cod the good, kind fatherly God hlH another'taught him to pray to, tha Oort who moves In a mysterious way, whicli is sometimes hard./ to explain, but Avho In the long run takes care of Ills children; Bill himself, being lor the most part Inarticulate^ may not be able to-define , what his God is, but he knows Him and feels His Presence. This God of his may not be on Bill's lips-but he is in Jim.'-*o shrivel up sla'A:faU:off 'without hurting a particle." |lt is al-inost magical.

" ' ' Within ten minutes after an application of Danderine you can not find a single trace of diandruff or falling hair and youy-'scaJp wfill not ^tch, but libve ot' mankind, of freedom, of homo, of kin, of country.' 'All the padriJs'Whom I interviewed at tho front were of the. opinion that the soldieKs', religion was broadly Bpeaking, "more tolerance." Tbftv themselves had expei'^ence^ tljis strange new religion .ot-partlpn-lng the other fellow's mistakes'-jjeftause his heart was,right. Some Qe^|i,S(ji, eyen said that when'they come TJaC^. to Canada they WQuld think lofls of peed and more o�..conduct than 'had been'.thuir custom.. One of them, indeed au atjfl tive.mpmlje? of tlie Lord^g Day AU llance,' toJifX-me that hii'mind had been opened-and that he now. saw no harm in' SundEw baseball and oth4r recreations, so long as tlie}^i\were not pursued for gain und one hiid gone to chur.lBouth; ^ad 'been In its.very Jaws and had come 'out again and again. A,nd no hell the -theologians can invent can 'be'' w'brse tlian the Hell the Hun created, AJl of which goes to' shbW' that 'It Bill needs leading upward it is not D^a'th,and Hell that will .scare him into the r'bad bf.righteousn^ss.. If the preaclier wants' to reapli^Bill he will talk to him not of Death, Hell and Herea'ftbi- but of Life^� Heaven -and Here. Having seen so much Hell on earth for the last four;years Bill will naturally want,to see a little Heaven We have most of the profiteers spotted. Bill will not be long home before he will get wise to them too. As a working man wlio has worked at n pinch, twenty-tour hours a day and seven days at a time-and no an*, maii-not a sullen truce as between satrap and sen". There will be masters and men, of course-but the men will claim the ri^ht to an old age, tree from the shadow of the poor house. The wages will have to take care of that, There i.s no Bolshevism among the soldiers :it the front- they are too good Canadians for tliat -but this does-not njoan that Bolshevism i.s lacking if thny receive unfair treatment. Bill's religion givfts a groat place to freedom and demociaiy. He lias seen mad work of chance to watch the clock or strike for higher V^y-Bill will have the right sort of sympathy with labor. I think ho will favor cooperation-cpoperation i so mucli of the bad, in danger, hardship, work and pleas-j kings that he will fling all of them urc, having been his long suit for four i except 'such as ar'd lieroditary jiresi-years. Cooperation-means unselfish-j dents, into the, bottomless pit. The jioss-it means) sharing. Under the 1 next editloJaotlhe bible-if it is to !fetern tutelage of war, Bill has learned I meet Bill's viewJa-will speak not of .the Kingdom of Heavoii but of tho bemocracy of Heaven, which Heaven really is. The war has taught Bill a great deal about freedom. Ho undcr-Btands, i)o\V'thaffreedfTm to be effective must bo acqomya,nied by order and authority.' There 'iiust be leaders or there,can't be followers. " For\four years war has plowed, harrowed, cross-harrowed and generally cultivated Bill's soul. It has made him a full man. The cynic has disappeared and in.his place is a new being with reverences which he did not bus-. pect before, and which, eveji now, lie may Hot acitnowledge-. But the reverences are there just the same and will do much to glorify and enligliten^hia citizenship.

The member of We owe a greaWeal to the health offiiials in the various nltini- cipalities who took such firm and quick action in dealing- with this epidemic. But for their nedicmc In Th'e World almost superhuman efforts in the face of many obstacles the ravages of this disease hay^been much more serious. The "Ban" has now been lifted in many localities and the number of cases reported in other districts is rapidly decreasing, but we are well advised to still take every precaution to safeguard health.  Many people have considered it Tnecessary in renovating their bed-� rooms to discard old mattresses and buy new ones-and rightly so.
