A GOOD TIP FOR THE ANTI-SPORTS London Sportsman: 'Speaking at the Queen's hall on Thursday night on the occasion of a London Robert Burns chib entertainment to Sec|-tish-colon'.al soldiers, Lord Derby made some remarks which should be taken to heart by the anti-sport fanatics. The secretary for war said: "The nation rejoices, and it has a right to rejoice, and I certainly am one of those who wish that, as long as it is necessary-and it is necessary at the present moment-to advance our cause, that the people's amusements, whether they be in the open air or in the theater, should go on as long as the public does not suffer. Let those who come home be met with cheerful faces, and let them feel that the time which they spend away from the trenches is a time for amusement which will distract them from all the anxieties and the dangers they have undergone and fit them for further exertion with renewed vigor." 1917 fordcoupelet $695.00 f.o.b.
