THE PROPOSED UNIFORM DRESS Editor Herald: the mother of a High school girl I wish to take this oppor- tunity to express my views on an ia the Herald of January 29, where the Local Council of Women decided that a uniform for High school girls be "the thing." Quoting that article, It waa said that a uniform would be wise from a thrift viewpoint, deploring the costly "geor- gette." I am convinced that it would _ not be wise from the standpoint of i thrift, very few girls wear Bitch clothes and the majority of mothers I would be forced to buy the prescrib- ed uniform when they have clothes that their gh-la cm wear without tho outlay of more money.

Kehoe. His statements having bee nsubstantiated, Keboe was ad- mitted to Canada and given trans- poi ation to New Westminster. 'Kehoe is a native of Quebec, and graduated at Edinburgh University as a civil engineer. In 1908 he took a position with a Mexican oil company and tour years .later was forced to take sides with one of the revolu- tionary parties then warring on the western slope. Cnptured, he was thrown in a vermin-infested- prison aud later in a salt mine. During that time he did not hear of the great war raging in Europe. Three months ago the opportunity to escape arrived. Hitting his guard on the head with a rock he scaled the 800-foot shaft and made his way across the 'American boundary, from whence he came north by foot and blind baggage.
