F)ICKEDUP IN ASSINGIZZZII FOR THE BUSY MAN ROUND THE CIRCLE Of THE WAR Increasingly convincing tividencc, j that thb Gemiau nation is daily oom-ing,*closer to tho verge of starvallon, Irf'.contalned in advertisements to bo loUnd in German papers, which iudl-cate that the people are doing their uttabst to conserve every possDle medium of nouflshracnt.; They arn cVen now partaking of the husks. Tiio Belgian government has pub-Ushe^ a po8ltlve;ttenla| that any offers of p4aoe have been m.ade by Germany. The British fleet has been viewed iby French and American war corre-Bpondenta who have become more con^^ced than exer ot Britain's Indomitable sea power. ^ R6umanla Is believed to be at the tarBlng point, and a matter of days may see her with the allies. It is reported that Bulgarian forces are taking up positions on the Roumanian ftontler. .\u eiisteni dally regales us with the story, told by a member of iinrlin-ment, thril It was tho flsh-eatlnp members from Nova Scotia, with their "d-- fish debate" that drove members from the house so that there were only 23 on the floor wlien tho big lire In the parliament buildings broke out. The * story .ourely smoUs to heaven anyway, whether the debate did or not. "Hear, UnclcIaiivSaVc'Tliis lor Mc'V LETHBRIDQE PLAN BASIS FOR CHANGE Tlie Lethbridga Uve Stock Guarantors' plan, which is a simple system of extending credit to farmers for the purchase of live stock, on the security ot that stock, has succeeded so admirably that its operations have been taken note of by the Minister of Finance for Canada, and it has been made the basis of a proposed amendment to the banking act which will permit of banks loaning money to farmers on the security of their live stock. The resolution covering this amendment was introtluced into the house oa Thursday and the act will be Introduced at once. As W. A. Buchanan, local member, put It, the banks have always been strong on preaching � mixed farming, but have hitherto not seen a way clear to furnishing the - �Hrherewithal to the f&rmer to pursue this policy. The Lethbridge guarantors may be well proud of the fact that they have originated a plan which has been the basis ot this much-needed amendment to the bank act. In a recent issue, the Calgary Herald had" this to say of the Xethbrldge plan: . "The Lethbridge plan has worked : admirably. There are today many ? � small farmers In the Letbbridge dla- trict who are better off than they could'ever have hoped to be other-I 'Wjse^as a result of it It has been a . case of the city men helping their '; ftirmer neighbors over a hard spot and the farmers are correspondingly ^tetul. � "Incidentally, and possibly as a re-; M ult of the prominence given to this �wealtness in the Canadian banking act by tlie Lethbridge plan of credits. It is announced that an amendment >' In the matter of credits to farmers is contemplated In the banking act. It ia "desirable that something of the sort should happen, for the act as It stands today does not please the famjers at all. The Lethbridge Board of Trade has done fine missionary , work in this direction, and Hon. Mr. AVbtte is wise to have taken note oC Its operations and made use of its ex- � liorlence in bettering the law." licro is the ^'ew York Post't. oi�in-ion of the wny lim great nations are taking tho world war "Tliore liave been no miracle:' in this war e.xccpt as each ot the con\-batant nations .has lived up in supremo fashion to its national cliar-acter and reputation. From. Germany were expected extraordinary preparation, good Icadcrsliip, and nithless determination and self-sacriflce, and in titeae are found'the secrets ot German achievements. From France were ex. pected initial blundering and disorganization, splendid courage, good leadersUlp, ,and readiness for selt-sacrif.ce, and these France has shown. Russia has been Kussia-ineffective iu sustained offensive, splendid on the defence, receiving terrific blows without succumbing. England has been England, prepared on the sea, unprepared on land, muddling, quarrelilne. resolute imder adversity, growing stronger with time. DIFFERENCE IN THE UNIFORM OF UNIVERSITIES BATT. Calgaf>-, Feb. 11-Recruiting for the 196th battalion, to be made up of men from the western universities, will be started' In the four western provinces in the near future. Authorization for the Immediate formation of tills battalion has been given and about spring an officer will be brought back from the front to take command. Each westeni province will be expected to supply a company of 250 men,and the members of this battalion will be different from those of other ^; units Inasmuch as they wiil wear the riding pantaloons and lea-titer leggings now^ worn by otficers.
