Director George McKillop is Getting Classes in Fine Shape Following is the Y.M.C.A. physical director's report beginning from the middle of August lo the end of tin; year 'lHIT, presented at the animal meeting recently; Owing to tin: fact thai, 1 started my work as physical director in the month of August, it ,is impossible for me to give a report of what was done before that time. The first month was spent in trying to put the boys department and tlm gymnasium in belter condition for (he winter season. It was decided lliat gym classes should be held -for business men, seniors, intermediates, junior and special juniors, all but the special juniors to. have two classes a week. A schedule was drawn lip and published, for these classes. The classes had only got started when the schedule had to be changed to make room for the U.ii.K.T. boys and the ladies classes. This brought the number of classes up to 12 a week. The business men's class was never started owing to the fact that, no one would turn out. It should not be forgotten that, a class under Sgt. Mc-Kinnley was started last year but it failed for the same reason. The senior class may or may not. be called a success. The boys would not turn out for gym work but came out for the basketball enVl of it. A good many took part- in this game the league was finished'a meeting was Y 'JboX Suiiuoa ai[7 .ioj duo ua.ujr am p|ot( 0} sv.w 9ii3u;)[ sun jo .iauu[M atlJ,  'ps�b|tl 9-ia.w samtiS si jo uno} u plii; paao-jua suiua) .moj 'dn umtjjp sb.w eu3B8[ iiBqiavsuq. -y- -ssaDons and this part of it has been a great held to organize a basketball club, this meeting met with success. It was decided that we should begin work to gel a first and second team who would' play outside towns in home and home games. Challenges , were sent out to Calgary, Edmonton. Taber, Raymond,. Caruston, Stirling, Medicine Hat, and Barnwell. The first, game that took place was a gaiiie with Edmonton. The outside games do not start until after the new- year, and it is expected that there will be some very good games. The average number of senior classes was 2S, number on roll 30. average number turning out was 20. The intermediate class began September the 8th. The work taken up by this class has been free movement exercises, dumbell work, running and marching, mat work, apparatus work, games and swimniiug. The intermediates played two games with the North Letlibridge boys in basketball. The number of classes held was 2S, number on roll 30, average per class 13. The junior class started on September the ISth, gym work consisted of running, free movement and dumbell exercises, apparatus work, games and swimming. A basketball league was drawn up and' three teams took part, and a total of six games played. The number of classes held was 28, number on roll 29, average per class 10. The special juniors started September the 22nd. Running, free movement and dumbell exorcises, apparatus work, games and swimming were taken up. The work taken up was much easier and the time was shorter than the other classes. The number of classes held was 14, number on roll 18, average per clas 12. The C.S.E T. work had every Thursday evening for gym work. At tho beginning o� the season their work consisted of running, jumping, pull-ups and so forth, but it was thought later that it would be better to put in free movement exercises. There were two classes the juniors and tho intermediates each had a class every alternate week. Mr. Nelson, Mr. Geo. \V. Robinson very kindly helped me with this class. The number of classes held for the intermediates was six, number on roll 40, average per class 3*1. The number of classes for the juniors Was six. number on roll 49, average per class 40. The ladies classes were well attended. There were two classes, the junior and senior. A basketball league was drawn up for the juniors but. it. was n failure owing to tho irregular attendance. The seniors had a league which was a Miiceess. The number of classes held for the juniors was 15, aveYage number per class was 22. The seniors hail 15 classes, and an average attendance of 21. A team of six boys went to the Ferule sports and managed to take nearly everything they went into. Arrangements were made to have the iligh School girls practice on Saturday afternoons to get in trim for a game with Hi" C'laresholm girls which, was played on the gym floor soon after. A bowling league was organized and resulted in success. All of which is respectfully submitted.

I Rome, Jan. 31. - An international I committee is to be formed to re-organize iiie finances of the Vatican, which ! Cardinal Gasparri. papal secretary of state, reports are in an alarming condition. The committee, one of whose members is to be Thomas 1-'. Ryan, of New York, will be called upon to devise means of obtaining funds, possibly by the underwriting of a worldwide loan. The Vatican's usual sources of revenue, such as rentals from properties and gifts from Mexico. IJelgium, France, Austria and (he Cnited States, have been reduced or cut off by war conditions. At tho same time Pope Benedict daily expends thousands of dollars in war charities, including the sending of food and clothing to prisoners of war in Germany and Austria. Appeals for contribulii/ns are received in large numbers at the Vatican from many countries. 1'nder the present, system of financial arrangements the pope acts as treasurer of the Vatican, having in his office a sale in which he deposits the funds to he disbursed. When the safe is empty the holy see nominally is bankrupt.
