The Herald doslres to sUr up as much Interest as possiblo in the proposed organization because we' believe it will prove to be the greatest factor in the south for the cause ot good roads. The example to be set by Lethbridge will be emulated by smaller towns in the south, and thus a chain of associations will be formed, all having a very direct Interest in building up the road system through the southern part of the province. �'"' The aims of the Auto Club may he very nicely set forth by quoting the platform of the Calgary Auto Club, adopted at a recent meeting: To promote the construction and maintenance, of good roads. Tp further all good road projects. To acomplish proper markings of highways. To collect and disseminate accurate touring information for the benefit of members of the automobile club. To encourage and further the forming of automobile clubs in all import e leading generating staff fort, the R.N.C.V.R.) who "emM* in the local dramatics and hU have been in Calgary for Bdme time, loss/will occasion the postpone-, have received orders from Ea.qulmalt'-JX!?*'0,' thbiiplay.-.f'The Blindness of aj Virtue, to have' been presented at REMAIN!^ tWANClS JOSEPH, � p.*f^;ft^^yiJ\�lEN':.
