Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 21, 1921, Lethbridge, Alberta >AOE TWELVE THE HBTMBKIIJliB DAILY r MIDAY. JANUARY 21.IWI SAMMY JAY MOVES UP TO FARMER BROWN'S BY THORNTON W. BURGESS To fuel happy us you voiU Try working for the common food. -Sammy Jay tiio Crow and Simmy hurt had their together, as tlie Bnyfns is. for some time in tho Green Forest. What that really means is that they hid been very busy talking things over and nuking a plan. Not in nil tho Green Forest are there shrewder heads than those of Blacky the Crow and Sammy Jay. Everybody knows that. Chatterer the Ecd Squirrel, tiein together and at once became suspicious. "Those two good-for-noth- ings are planning aome jauttered Chatterer. You sec, he is so jnischlevous himself that he suspects jBischief in othsre right away. "When tbote two cousins get their heads to- gether it means trouble for somebody. I wonder who it is this time.'" he con- tinued, still talking 10 himself. He triad to steal near enough to bear what they were talking about, but he wasn't smart enough to escape their eyes aad they drove him away, rfjlrttag at him .with their sharp bills ho was slari to seek safety in a ]loie in tree they could not' reach him. There he called them names and scolded to his heart's con- tent, but it was a long time before he dared poke his head out to see where they were. When he did they were nowhere to be seen. Sammy Jay and Blacky Crow hsrt parted, company on the edge of the Green Forest. Blacky had turned back but Sammy Jay had flown over to the Old Orchard. First hu had sat for a Joog time carefully looking this way and that way. He studied every snow- coyered post and every little mound of white in sight until he was sure thai it was just what it happened to bo. Sammy didn't intend to make any mistake. A mistake might cost him his liM, and life was just a? dear to Sam- my u it is to you. He was making mm that Whiiey tho Snowy Owl was nowhere about. From tree to tree through tha Old Orchard Sammy atole and that noisy tengne of his was silent. In each tree be sat a while io van those sharp of his and make an re that all was as safe u it seemed. In the trea in the corner of the OW Orchard nearest Fanner frown's house Sammy sat for a long time. He felt quite safe there. You know the Old Orchard comes up to the very edge of Farmer Brown's and over in the doorymrd was; a big cedar tree. It was a good tree in .which to spend a night, and it wae a safe tree, for in the midst of its thick branches it would he impos- sible! for Whitey to catch him. So with that cedar tree so near Sam- my foil more at ease. He knew be could reach it if Wlitey should un- expectedly 'appear. But there were no signs of Whiter, and after a while two good-for-nothings are planning muttered Charterer. Sammy flew down to a little shelf fastened to the apple tree next the one in which he bad been sitting. On that shelf was fastened a big piece oi sueL and cracked com was scattered there. It was a table for the birds of the Old Orchard, put there by Farmer Brown's boy, and all through the wint- er kept supplied with food. Sammy ate until ho could hold no more. Then be flew across to the big cedar tree and iu the shelter of its thick branches settled himself com- fortably for the night. He felt quite at home there, for ho had spent more than one night there before. "I hope that white robber comes around to- morrow muttered Sammy, sleepily. Three minutes later he was fast asleep.

Jan. pre- cautions should snrround the granting of marriage licenses and a higher fee charged sufficient to prove remunera- tive to a man qualified to thoroughly 'investigate applications fof licenses, was the opinion expressed by Chief Justice Brown, here. Mr. Justice Brown's remarks were made when de- livering judgment m the case of Tuck I vs Donald, an 'application for a deter- i mination that a second marriage was null and void. "I do not think a license should be granted on payment of a fee of J2.00; a man should be charged at. least If it is not worth white paying I J.S5.00 he had better stay single until he can see, it is worth said his lordship. flfTIRS THE APPETITE TO ACTION! mdsor Table HOLD COTTON TO PUT UP PRICE CAIRO, Egypt, Jan. co-oper- ative syndicate has been forced to hold 'two million cantars of. cotton in the hope' ot -raising the price of the commodity (a cantar ranges from 100 to 130 pounds.)

League of Nations, Education, Navy, Civic Greetings, I Thursday Afternoon Sctmon Filly Occupied With Inter eating Addremw SCHOLARSHIPS IN COUNTRY SCHOOLS Tho Thursday afternoon session of tho Provincial meeting I. 0. D, E. was an open meeting in the U. W. V. A. hall, the hall being well filled. The speech of the atternoon was that of Dr. C. I'. P. Conybeare, K. C. Dr. Conybeare "The League of was the subject chosen by Dr. Conybeare, and ho save n most inspiring address upon this comprehensive subject. "The conception of a league to lessen the probability of war is by no means a new thing." said Dr. Conybeare in introducing his subject. "Prominent statesmen have for a long time pro- pounded the idea which has gradually increased in strength until its pres- ent development." National jealousies, aspirations for greater power, racial re-union, the fear of various countries that they will be compelled to give up the whole or some portion ot their independent sov> ereignity are the great difficulties in its formation. If a League of Nations is to be established it will have to pend for its enforcement, not upon any power in the league, but in the observance by all nations associated. Its foundations must be voluntary, not compulsory. The present League of Nations I vides that all eases of1 controversy brought by. one party may be heard with or without the consent of the other party. Two Classes An analysis of the League shows tho covenants to be divided into two classes: (a) Self-restraining, wherein nations bind themselves to certain things, such as the avoidance of ac- tions likely to lead to war. the limita- tion of armaments agreed upon, the respect of territorial limits, and that the commencement of war shall not take place until tUree months follow ing the decree issued, after consulta- tion with the League of Nations, (b) Penalizing clauses, in the event of an infraction of the covenant. The League of Nations is divided into two legislative bodies: the as- sembly, in which every affiliated na- tion has a vote; and a council of 9, with five representatives of. great powers, and four to be elected by the assembly. At present there are only eight on this assembly as the United States bas not joined. It is possible in framing the League the members were a little too ambi- tious, sail! the speaker, but they have given the people something to swal- low and they will take as much of it as they can. A more modest produc- tion might have rested for years with- out further advance. The League can never be fiilly effective till all civiliz- ed nations have been affiliated with it. Territorial Boundaries Article 10, dealing with the recognl- tjon'of territorial boundaries, has caused a great deal of controversy, and'was tho cause of its being reject- ed by the United States, who are afraid of being dragged into complica- tions of that kind. There is a feeling in the U. S. now, also, that a League ot Nations la impracticable and tile efforts of the nations should be ton fined to an International Court. How- ever, our representatives express sat- isfaction with the work done at the recent meetings at Geneva, and Lloyd George claims that it has done' a great work alone in stabilizing the sit- uation of International labor. The League of Nations has been o.' great benelit to the world in establishing it upon a permanent basis. Nothing was finally closed at Hie meeting upon the question of disarm- ament, but full discussion took place as to the minimum qf defense jnd the steps to be taken to rednnu the milit- ary, naval and air forces. The eyes of the people have been opened to tho folly of being taxed to produce wealth is.nsed to destroy wealth, through war. Secret treaties also will have to go, by the establishment iof a better understanding between nations. Mankind has had many difficulties to face and obstacles to remove in its step from barbarism to civilization. We must believe that the same spirit of intellect which has guided us so far will be with us and cause us to achieve at last a League of Nations that will put an end to all war. The Navy Mrs. Wolley Dod, of Calgary, gave a very interesting sketch of the hist- ory oH the navy, showing that three golden threads, those of duty, disci- pline, and self-sacrifice, run through it all. She made a plea for tho better study of naval history, showing Its commencement by Alfred the Great, its decrease at the time of Ktuuiu, i-uuuitinj; iu thy battle or Hastings, its power at the time of Elizabeth, the loss of naval spirit In the time of'Charles II., the sad time in the eighteenth century when her naval supremacy was threatened, the closing of a brilliant chapter in naval history at the battle of Trafalgar, and the, wonderful work of the navy during the nineteenth century, sho recom- mended several books to the members to read: "Sea Power in "The Navy "The Uetreat from the "The Mnrne and and "Tho West and the East." In closing Mrs. Wolley Dod referred to the graat unknown dead in Westminster Abbey and the tribute that was duo tho pioneers of the west and tha R. N. w. M. P. Addresses of Welcome Mayor Hardle gave a brief address of welcome, referring to the wonder- ful work that had been done during the war by Canadian women. Presi- dent LongwwjS, tho (i, w, y, A.' Health and Fry's" offered greetings from his organiza- tion, telling how the foundation-stone of tha G. W. V. A. had been laid in Lethbridge by the Sir Alexander Gait and the Major Jack Ross Chapters of the city. Educational Work Mr. Watson, inspector of schools] gave some decidedly interesting sug- gestions regarding educational work, which made u great impression upon the convention. He suggested that if tlte Order desired to carry the work further it should go to the rural lady teachers and bring them into closer touch with the organization and that they would thns carry the interest in citizenship into their school rooms. Mr. Watson thought that scholarships were better than pictures because that meant effort oa the part of the pupils, who would therefore appre- ciate them nore. He also suggested contributions to teachers' residences, and interesting tho wives of those teachers who lived in rural districts. Great Opportunities Mr. Hodgson, superintendent of schools, addressing the meeting told the members how much scholarships and prizes stimulated 'and encouraged the pupils who in this reconstruction period must be taught that they must get down to hard work. The work of the I.O.D.E. in Alberta is merely starting, stated Mr. Hodgson, going on to describe the various foreign settlements. Tho population is creasing much more rapidly in these than in others, bringing an additional burden upon us, while at the same time only the in-experienced or permit teachers will "take these schools, though they are the most difficult of any and are'open for the shortest terms. In closing Mr. Hodgson cautioned tm> I.O.D.E. against deciding upon measures that do not at all fit the situation. He emphasized the fact that these problems must first of all be studied at first hand, for until Oiey have been soen, it is JmpossihK to realize tho conditions' and how much must be accomplished. The cam- paign must bs based upon this knowl- edge and with teachers engaged in this work.
