Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 16, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRroCE DAILY -tHi � HERALD -fcducation Along Other More Serious Lines Will Also Be Undertaken "Kdmonton, Feb. 15.-A Dominlon-�nide prohibition campaign -whlcli is already getting nnder way, was an-noimced at the Alberta Temperance couventton this morning on the .strength of information just received by wire from Toronto. The federal parliament will be asked to pass a A\-ar measure prohibiting throughout Canada the manufacture end importation of liquor for beverage purposes, with a referendum after the war to make prohibition permanent. If the government finds it desirable to take the referendum on the war measure it is asked for before'next June, to be effective within three months there-�after. Petitions to this effect are being prepared, and will be circulated thTOUghout Alberta in common with ether provinces. The move is regarded as the biggest thing in temperance reform that has ever-been attempted }n Canada, and the special fact in favor of the campaign at the present time: Is the effect such a measure *coul3 have on the war situation by releasing large quantities of foodstuffs. The convention accepted and en-Slorsed a-resolution asking the pro-'vincial government to amend the ttiedical health act in respect to venereal diseases. A report submitted by Dr. H. R. Smith showed that a serious situation had- arisen in the way of , these diseases spreading through the I province, and the amendment asked for provides for the notification of all cases by number, free services of the provincial laboratory tor analysis by physicians and free supplies of diar-senol drugs In trfeating the disease, to physicians treating the notified cases. An educational campaign, particularly among the people, is now contemplated. Dr. F. A. Keillor of' Edmonton, in supporting the report of the committee, declared that venereal diseases were a greater datzger than tuberculosis. Vigilance committees in local communities were recommended in an address by Rev. G. G. AVebbor of Stet-tler, as a means of securing better law enforcement. and Tempting 1^'Crisp to the teeth-tneltiBg in the inoutb-adeligbtto tbe palate-that's SomUpr The kfddies love these plain, wholesome sodas, and so do tbe srown-upsl In Packages Only.

There is, therefore, {i net deficit on current account of ST,lTS.i>l. As against this, however, there have been paid out in the past ?7,646.55 from current account foh which debentures should be issued, so that when this is done the board will have a surplus of some *,")00. The auditors have just finished their work on the books of the board, and their balance sheets show the above result. This year the Separate school board is going after its share of taxes from private corporations and compaule.s. Heretofore, laxes from such companies have always gone to the public schools. The S. S. board holds that, according to law, a pro-rata division of the taxes to the two boards should be made. This will tend to reduce the Separate school rate and increase the public school rate. The S. S. board claims that they have been educating about 1-6 of the school population of the city on about 1-10 of the school taxes. CALIFORNIA IS VEXED AT THE HOSTILITY OF SENATOR WORKS Horth-West Biscuit Co., limited EDMONTON - ALTA. I liOS Angeles. Feb. 9.-Resentment swept California when her citizens read Senator Works* speech in the United States >Benate in which he charges the United States and American citizens with being unneutral toward Germany, an attitude which, he said, made the break with Germany inevitable. Last night the city council by unanimous vote denounced Senator Works for his attitude, and characterized his attack upon the president as uncalled for and untimelx, and at var-iance with the spirit of true Americanism. The resolution assured the president that Los Angeles and all California "thoroughly dissent from th unpatriotic opinions of the senator." Further, the president was assured by the Council "of our hearty support of his policy." In commenting on Senator Works' speech, the Los Angeles Times edit-orally says: "It is to be hoped, but not expected, that when the senatorial term of John Works expires, 24 days hence, he will not return to this city, but gc to Germany or hell. - "He misrepresents California and in his old age has spoiled the creditable record ,he has made in many things, by protesting against the action of the president in severing dip lomatic relations with Germany. Am? he slanders his own country in saying that the United States has not been neutral as a nation."

H. ^Taft asserts he has been told by a' Japanese statesman that if the Japanese were treated in the United States as the Chinese were the Japanese government, although desiring peace, would not be able to restrain its people. "We are facing war now," Mr. Taft added. "I believe the only policy we can pursue is to have; it understood that every male who iomes to manhood shall spend a certain time in training to be a soldier.

The total expenditures for the year were $88,* 648.72. � .- - Last year the school board ^y,ent at the task of preparing its estimataB withTa surplus of �22,83B.39 to help them. NO such^, surplus is available this year, and with increasing.expenditures, increasing salaries and the need for more accommodation and teachei\3, lit Appears lf.ial at" least SIOO.OOO will be required to take care of the board for this year. Qn the basis of a reduced assessment, and after the city allows'a .sutflcieftt mai--gin for luicoUectJible taxes, there Is little doubt that the school tkx rate for 1917 will be 10 mills, or at best very little less than that figure.

The attendance at the schools is steadily increasing, and with the o;^-ening of the beginners' clashes on Jlarch loth, two new rooms will have to be opened, one in Fleetwood., and one in Hardieville. The board yes-tei-day authorized the engaging of two new teachers for these rooms.
