At United church In the morning, speaking along general lines of civic life and moral conduct, Mr, Dbbson emphasize^ several � points. He em-phasi�ed the symbolism of the Union Jack, which bore a cross embeddsd In white. This symbollaed the spirit of patriotism which was of sacriflclal purpose imbedded in white life, the essential of true Canadian democracr. He emphasized also the necessity ot the citizens facing ' th'e. problems of morals. The greatest boast of a'clty was the kind of people it bred: Speaking to the children, Mr. Dob-son emphasized the value of co-operative play in developing a spirit of fraternity and good fellowship arid in developing capacity for quick judgments. At Wesley Chiinch Rev. Hugh Dobson of Regiua chose as his subject last- evening In Wesley church, "The Peace Task and the New Day." He opened his' talk by showing how all"people are brothers land sisters, and have coine trom five years of tribulation,, hayd tasks,' difficult problems and griefs,! aQ^d'since then epidemic and griefs, oip to this pre^-,  ent Christmp ajid never iWas there,, a I Christmas with'mpre real .deep Jiope. ! springing up along the, lines of life." One of the most peculiar things abbtit humanity, said Mr.; Dtflison, was that the more chaotic things became, fhe more hope sprang up. So It Is that In real life, the more ^hnman life is trampled on,,the more,real lUe springs up., ', '� - ' - : ^' �' ' Mr. Dobson %en.t on to say that the war Is one of justice arid freedom ind that war is not yet over, for we have not yet world freedom and Justice. The peace ^task 'meaa� the* continuation; of-the war, working out in all systems of bjisiness, politics, factories, those things wiilch will piromotS justice and freedom, air. Dobson then went on to quote from President Wil; son, David Lloyd-George and John-DT ||Rockefeller, Jr., with" their broad ideas of reconstruction. ^ The comfort our soldiers seek is to see that for. which they fought flilfillisd. freedom, justice arid righteousness These things bring comfort; to huifian hearts, in the sense of h'rotherhood. for men, to toil, to play, .to love sind to" worship together. Mr. Dobson then went on ib show that reconstruction was a wide thing, it must! be seen to that those who cpme back are given vocational training and rehabilitation,ithat they may; be given work to do'tha,t they are able to dol and which th^bjtndo as well or better thaa^Jiole men, pnabllng them to; support their JamilijEia Independently Indifference to humai^^life is more dls^ kstrous than war^d diir present large IosbSs from preverilable' causes niTist be attended to. There are also many prolilema in the educational line, "illr.
