The drive had for It.-* mark $30,000 or $3 per head of population. Tho canvass has practically boon completed but two or three ot the captains have not yet reported, and it appears as it part ot tho city had not been thoroushly rnnvassed. Tho Gait rtiiners are contributing at the rate of about ^400 per month, which makes a contribution ot about $.5,000 for tho year. This was the largest contribution received. Tho officers of the Red Cross are not disappointeil over tho canvass as they believe they will mako up the remaining ?8,500 ot Uio desired amount from the part of the city yet uncan-vassad and from outside contributions. In this connection It Is pointed out that Calgary is making a drivo next week for $120,000. This amount Is only four times what Lcthbridgo endeavored to raise while Calgary claims to have from five to six times tho pop-uiattoa Lethbrldge cau boast. IjUth-brldgo also, without a campaign, has enough Patriotic Fund money on hand to keep up its payments of $25.00 a month until the end of May whereas Calgary has fallen considerably behind in Its allotraont of $10,000 per month. Tho local Red Cross officers feel that if a little" special effort la made Lethbrldge can bring its Red CroBB quota this year up to the $30,- ��I don't care how drastic his -.u-^thin,^U,aUho^l.n. co^^ latlon may become-and 1 think the women of Canada are with mo in this -It It means that we are going to win the war, we will all stand behind the Food Controller and,comply with whatever orders ho may .Issue: I am quite 8uro my husband will see to it that they are caiT-led piit.

"I believo in concentration," says Lady Borden, and she Is the living exemplification of- her words. ' She has no faith in the dissipation ot a woman's energies here, there and everywhere. She believes in each one tihding her niche, and occupying it,' so (hat there need be no ovjerlapping.; "That is why 1 am here," she explained to the interviewer who sought her at tho Red Cross headquarters; Ottawa, where, shp is to 'Ije"found every working'day-Jn' the 'week between 10 and 1 o'clock, 'M h'ave found that 1 cau accomplish nwiro by concentrating on this work tliah by run: hing.around from one orgaitizatiou to another. It took some time to do away with much of the overlapping that existed iii the work of the women's societies in Canada, but bIuco my recent visit to the United'states I am of tho opinion that the organization in this country is now as nearly pertectas can bo expected when everything isi taken into consideration." i But our.intention was to talk food conservation and production.'
