The following are the arniugements: (11 .A.ny student preparing for examination in any grade from X. to XII. inclusive will be granted a diploma for having covered the work jot such grade on tiling with the de-I i)artment a statement upon the pre-Iscribed form, signed by the principal of the school such student is attending, giving the standing of the .student in each subject to the best of J he information and judgment of such [principal, and certifying that in the I opinion of the principal such student I would be successful upon his examination if he were to remain in attendance at the school .until the end of .lune. 12) The student will be reuulred to furnish the department with sati.s-I factory evidence of having enlisted in ; the university battalion or some other i battalion for active military serWce abroad.

The Sons of ISigland Record has the following to say rogurdlng a re-jport which recently appeared that the order was not protecting members who went to the front: In a recent issue of the Toronto Star there appeared an nttack upon the S. O. K. n. S. so unfair and untrue that It calls for a reply from the Ket'ord. It was a gross misrepresentation of the fact.s in connection with the .uolicy of the Supremo Kxecutive I in dealing with the beneficiary mom-j hers who htive gone to the front. A I more outrageous perversion of the I facts could not have been made by I the iiitterest enemy of the S. O. E. If the writer were simply searching for a sensation one would liavo thought that hi' would have made his investigations in some other direction than with a view to injure a society which is doing so much for the preservation of the Kmpire at the present time. It was even charged in the Star tliat the S. O. K. regarded enlistment for ovei-sens senice as immoral. .-V superficial, iind apparently hostile, reading of the constitution led the .-^tar to say that among the Sons of Kngland, rocniiling tor overseas was placed upon the grounds of immorality. It is quite unnecessary to di> more than state this fact to convince the niembcrs of the Society that the at-llack whicli the Star made upon it was miwurnuiled and maliciaus. The executive officers arc charged with grave responsibilities to maintain the solvency of the institution, and at the same time afford the full limit of protection to the dependents of every beneficiary member. It is in that spirit of earnest resolve for the welfare of tlie society that the Supreme Executive hits deteinnincd to go to the full limit of the financial resources of the stH'iety in protecting the interests of the enlisted members. Tlie fact that the Society has no liability for the payment of bene-ticiary claims by men who have undertaken extra hazardous occupations will not weigh w-ith the Supreme Kxecutive, for they have decided to meet in full all claims of ordinary members who enlist. In doing so this society is assuming a heavier liability than any other similar organization in Canada. The Sons of England Henefit Society has more men in the front in proponion to its membership than any other fraternal or national society. It will be remembered that at Windsor a resolution- was passed instructing the Supreme Executive to insure the lives of all members who enlisted. When that action was taken the war had just begun. The jirospect was for Not a Pimple Anywhere in Sight And Any Woman May Become Free From All Blemishes of Face or Skin by Using Stuarfs Calcium Wafers One of the greatest blessings a woman can have is to be possessed of a fine fair skin on face, neck and arms* .A. little attention now and then to the blood condition makes this possible. Women are great sufferers from blood disorders and hence their complexions are marred because of this fact. (H Our Sales on IUmI C'l'oss Day will goito (lie ^ Iriends here oil (hat day. t 309 5th ST. COALDALE BLK. This Store is Pleased to Give 10 per cent OF ITS SALES RED CROSS SOCIETY to the ON TUESDAY NEXT CROSS DAY a short campaign. Hut as the stnigglo developed and the certainty of a prolonged conflict was impressed upon the country it became impossible for the Supreme Kxecutive to carry o.ut that instruction. The straiglit-line Insurance Companies in many cases refused to take such risks at any price: the companies absol"*e'y declined to issue a bfanket policy covering a stated number of men. Faced with tliese conditions it became clear that the wiser course for the stability of the Society would be to levy a special assessment of $1.00 upon everj' member to meet this extraordinary liability. This fund will be used ^-^pecially for the relief of the widows and orphans of tlic men wlio may be killed. The responsibilities of the Supreme Executive are to 32,000 members, wlio.i cannot go to the front, as well as to something over :'.,000 who have gone. Those who remain at home are the elder members, who liave made their | contributions to maintaining the efficiency of the Society for many years. It would be unfair and unjust In every way to overlook the claims which tliey have tipon the Order .The Supreme Executive has endeavored to take a comprehensive view of the whole situation. TIrey are more deeply interested in the well being of every insured member than all the daily papers in Canada nut together. The Supreme Kixecutive oillceis have also decided to protect the members who hold Insurance Certificates and who enlisted for military duty, prior to this date, provided tlieir payments are kept ijl).;' To meet these claims, extra assessments will have i to be made upon all beneficiary members. WHiile it is hoped tliat every able member will do his best in fighting for his countiy, we trust everj- inein-ber who may not be called upon for active service will do his best, and assist the Supreme Executive in raising the necesary funds tor the protec-tioii of those whose lives may be sac-riticed in tliis great cause. in (Ml, llOilt llCbt Cardston Will be \ Well Represented \ At The Festival KNAPPEN NEWS Beautiful Complexion Always is a Centre of Admiring Gaze."
