Old timers will be interested in news of these young men, as their father and mother were among the first residents of Lethbridge. * *  Mrs. Edwards of Mac 1 eod will be present at the conference of women on war problems at Ottawa this week. Mr. Edwards is tbe only delegate from the 'extreme south of the province and she wilt make a very capable representative. 1 think Lethbridge should have been asked to send a delegate as it certainly has a large number of women's organisations and plenty of splendid women to choose from. Southern Alberta has problems of its own and only Southern Alberta women can properly place them before the govKrnmejU. We don't know how the ladies were selected but we hope Lethbridge will not be overlooked next time. We are thankful that the sole representative from Southern Alberta is so able a woman as Mrs. Edwards. She has lived long in the south and knows its war time and peace tiint problems and can deal I with thflm fntelligently. ' i Because Or. Ritchie England, president of the Mtmtreir!

There were Munn in St. Lawrence-St. George division, Montreal, who ha's 2,375 votes as agiaJnst 5,Uif> cast for Hon. C. C. Ballantyne, and Hushiou, Liberal candidate for SI. Antoine, who received 12,510 votci, while Sir Herbert Ames polled fj,0U7. In both instances tbe soldiiers' vote was responsible for the lo&s of the deposit, tn St. Douis both the opponents of Mr. A. Averill lose their deposits. FRENCH RAID Paris, Feb. iM-lti "a raid north of the Aillet'.e river hts-l'-night the French took 1(> prisoners, the'-wii* office announced. They also captured a machine gun. *> ANNUAL MEETING OF s our custom in the past strikes me ae the m:o3t important and outstanding action taken by our Chapter during the year. The key-note of a message from the Food control board 'of Canada last week was "food control or famine." Those words aotuid tio me al3 a last call to voluntary effort. Are we women here tomlght to volunteer for this or are we waiting to be conscripted. Food control and rationing are coming- And i ask that not only as a Chapter but as women who have voluntarily taken up whatever tasks presented themselves that we openly acknowledge ourselves as practising in our homes .strictest economy in our use of wheat, sugar, bacon, beef and fats before we have to be conscripted into the army of food savers. The Result.s r The economic result among our member* h* well worth the effort to say nothing of the moral influence of such action by two hundred 'women. The statement has been made by ia man well up in the world's fo^d situation that If we in Canada do not practise the strictest measures of economy and production now that even should pcace be declared tomorrow more people will die In Europe of famine than the total war casualties to date. If this (touches m no 'other way does it not slir the mother heart in all of 'u� to its depth? For in such a case it is ever tbe children who pay.. To meet the returning soldiers has been so far undertaken only by members of the VeteramV Committee. I trust -that soon every woman among us will claim aa her right the privilege of meeting some of the men reluming each month. At almost every station on their return trip through the Dominion our men are welcomed by some of the citizens and it is not as tt. should be If Lethbridge, who has sent so many and remembers them so fondly, is one ot the last places to look on thi*� as a privilege due ourselves. Our educational work is another department which readies forth into the future in almost unforseeable results. By 'tills 1 mean not alone that, we offer prizes for patriotic esaays, ect., but also that by the courtesy of our school board we have been able to enlist the children in practical war work and apart from the socks' knitted and money raised by them. I should like to remind you of the wonderful influence among the children oi making them feel thai they also are playing their part Cor the Klmpire ini this great day. The child's entlurs'ia^m thus raised is a force to be reckoned with in the future tjo the everlasting glory and benefit ot our Empire. It is hurd to say of any branch that such or such iH of greatest importance but one of great importance in my opinion � ite MffT �C t*L' Visiting Amoy, China, Feb. ?.5.w-NearIy 10,000 peraona lost their lives ai a result of the recent earthquake in the Amoy hinterland, according to the latest.reports from Swatow. Committee. 1 hope It is understood now by all thait our Interest in our brave meu'13 wives, mothers, amd families Is a matter entirely apart from the work done by the Patriotic Fund. It is but to express our "'sympathetic and affectiom.nte friendship for s'lsters who have given their all in the greatest cause in the world.-amd the privilege of calling upon them in their homes and sharing in a .small way their joy� and sorrows, is -to us a privilege indeed. Tribute to Officers No resume of our work would be complete without a tribute to the officers and councillors who luwe assisted us c-n this year's executive. They have nifist faithfully attended frequent executive m-eetings and carded out most faithfully the dutree of their offices. While it is almost impossible for me to make -special'mention of any officer i am sure you will understand my appreciation of the work done by your bon. secretary. Kver 'and always has she been conscientious and cheerful in carrying out her arduous duties am) my duties as regent have been most pleasan't because of Iter capabilities. I wamt, too, to thank the members for their splendid support and co-operation m tli� year's work, convenors of committeOB standing iaind special, have been most efficient in the performance of their duties. It is wunt.hy *cf mention that every member of this large Chapter has been ready and willing lo bear her part in the work and responsibilities of the ytar. The splendid work accomplished i-s due to the many not'the few. Officers to .servo on the various committees are always moat gratefully accepted, and as there are frequent calls for our members to volunteer their assistance no one need feel that she is unessential in a great cause. Respectfully submitted. U U KiTCHip, UegeaL ;
