See "The Notor-ious Helene" at the Colonial Thursday (Tdnight). Lethbridge people can rest assured that the toy dealers of the city are taking every precaution that no goods of German make will be foisted upon them during the Christnaas rush for toys. This Question has arisen as a result of thf recent action of the next-of-kin, association In declaring a boycott on the purchase of German-made toys. "I think it is safe to say that there is scarcely a toy of'Qarnaan make on sale in the city today," said a prominent toy-dealer, who was Interviewed by The Herald on the question. In the midst of a Christmas rush. People were swarming in to buy. all manner of toys, but so far as The Herald man could discover, there was not a toy of German wake 6u the shelveu for sale. Of course Uier^ are German-made loys iu atoclc in some of the sloroR, and occasionally one of these may, slip out unawares, but wherever these have been' discovered they have been shelved out of reach by the dealers. These toys are some which have been in stock since before the war, or that have been slipped through by some jobber In a big order of Canadian, British or Amerlcaft made goods. "There are bound to be some of these." say the toy-men, "for there was au enormous stock of them In the coun-tj'y before the war broke out. It cannot be helped that some of these And their way out to the public, but wherever they have been dUcverad, these toys with the hated Germaii name on them have been, scrapped. This has meant a loss In many cases of a considerable amount to the toymen, but it is considered as nothing to the loss that a dealer would stand in public esteem were he to deliberately place these goods on sale." There is an enormous stock ot dolls this year, and nearly every one of these have been made in Canada. There are also a good many American-made toys coming in this year.

Smiling Doug. Fairbanks in his biggest success "The MaU Breed" - Colonial Theatre Tonight. E Tho following resolution touching on the subject of a memorial for the soldiers was passed at a meeting of the Next-of-Kln AsEoclatlon yesterday. The resolution was proposed by Mrs. A. Craig, and adopted by all present: Wo, the Lethbridge Great War Next of Kin Assoclatlou, In general session assembled, do heroiby commend to the council and citizens of -the city of Lethbridge the following | proposals for a memorial to tho men who have fought for the Dominion of Canada, carnesHy requesting their careful conBid(Sratloii of the same; (1) That a^-'eiia^ret^'B home lie founded In the city of Lethhrldge iu which -would be cared for the chlldreu of the men who have died, and the men who have lost their wives whilsy serving. (2) That this home he placed, at the outset, on a sound financial basis by public subscriptlpn,, after wiiich It would be supported entirely by*its own efforts.'. ',' ,' ; , . (3) If il -was found it a later' date that the altnatlon no longer called for such anInstitution (when tUo children grew up the need would lapse), then It cor.ld be turned inlc a home for aged veterans, and be then supported by them, from their pensions. Suggestions regarding tho jil)ove are asked for from tho citizens. As a further suggestion to the above we would recommend that a comnili-iep of local women should be fortnod to watch over and care for the children. Each of thih committee could adopt one child for ono year, and , be responsible during that period for Uio child's welfare. MRS. T. LONGWORTH, Pres. That the schools will close Friday evening tor the holidays is the statement made to the Herald this morning by a member of the school board. This is not done because of any fear thiit Influenza is spreading, but there are a large number of children not attending the schools this week, and with the Christmas holiday coming on it Is thought that the schools may as well be closed on Friday, instead ot Tuesday as Jnte;ided. It la possible thut^ only one weplt's holidays may be glv-~ i:e)i/iand that they will re-ppen on Dev. 30th. New Years would of course be'ii holiday. No definite decision to this effect, has been n^rlvad,at however., ?31835 ?60231 43 ;
