The least therefore that, tho men can do is to contribute the money. There is a strong appeal to everyone in the great work of mercy the Red Cross Is doing. Just keep tho object of the drive in mind, and when tho canvasser calls give him a generous donation without wasting his time. And remember, you can't be too generous in this cause.

THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The peace negotiations at Brest have again been postponed and it is understood another appeal is being made to the allies by the Bolshevik! to consider a basis of peace. In the meantime, conditions in Austria are rapidly approaching a crisis which will possibly be a revolt of the people unless peace is concluded at Brest, not only with Russia but with the other allies. Hunger riots and workmen's strikes are increasingly prevalent. Increasing unrest is also evident in many parts of Germany. MAY FOLLOW EXAMPLE OF GREAT BRITAIN AND U.S. Unification oi the three railway systems is believed at .Ottawa to be the plan under contemplation by the cabinet committee. But that is a difficult thing from nationalisation. It is stated that the example of Great Britain and the United States will be emulated and that the three systems will be brought under one management with a thorough co-ordination of all equipment. In Great Britain action was taken at the very beginning of the war. The railways were required to carry state traffic free and to maintain the same rates on other business as obtained when war broke out. The government guaranteed earnings on an average based upon the three pre- r war rears* business, and undertook to look after depreciation. The systems are controlled by a board made up of representatives of the execu tive of all the railways. A similar plan has been adopted by the United States, the main difference being that on account of the multiplicity of roads all the executives could not be represented. NO NEED FOR MORE CABINET MINISTERS r The Calgary board of trade wants a distinct minister of public health in r Alberta, with no relation to auy other department. Alberta has enough cabinet ministers already, and public health can be cared for under one of the present ministers. Hon. George P. Smith has already'teen given control of public health and much of the old work of the provincial secretary's department has been taken away in order to give him a greater opportunity to carry out a vigorous policy in connection with the public health. If the new minister fails to realize tho des're for progressive health measures then it will be time to advocate a change. " , Combination of important departments under one minister is not uncommon and public health, since it is given the foremost place, can very well trust to careful and efficient administration from the provincial secretary. Public health is very Important but does not at this moment warrant the creation of a new portfolio and the appointment of a new cabinet minister. We have plenty enough cabinet ministers now. FIGHT OR PAY HELP THE RED CROSS Today the first widely organised drive for Red Cross funds, which has been held in Lethbridge since the beginning of the war, will start, and citizens will be canvassed with a view to raising $25,000 in three days. Lethbridge will do It. Of that the Herald feels certain, for Lethbridge has never yet failed in any war object it has undertaken. The time is ripe for such a drive. This year we have no Patriotic Fund to raise by direct subscription. Last year we raised well over $30,000 for the Patriotic Fund. In addition $15,-000 were raised for^ the Red Cross. The total was around $50,000. We are W L asked to raise only half that amount and we should go about it to accomplish that result In the shortest possible space of time. Let us make a record by raising It In three days. When we say that we mean for the men of Lethbridge to make a record, for it is up to the men. The ladies will do their part a/ter the men raise the mosey. The ladies buy the goods Sad by hard work week In and week SASKATCHEWAN ADOPTS WILD LAND TAX Saskatchewan is following in Alberta's footsteps and adopMng the wild lands tr.x as a means of raising needed revenue-and of putting idle laud under cultivation. Legislation along this line was passed at the recent session of the Saskatchewan legislature. In the changed conditions that followed the outbreak of war that province, in common with others, suf-jfered a marked loss of revenue. The extent of this loss was indicated by the Hon. C. A. Dunning, provincial treasurer, in his budget speech. The largest item in the reduction of revenue, taking the financial year of iy 13-14 as the basis of comparison,, was. of course, the amount formerly j received from liquor licenses, which i tho man's iob, it has never nppe.iled h> him in its till significance. It has ever taken a secondary place. For this reason, medical inspection of our rural school children, rural hospitals, rural nurses, are still things we see only In our dreams. It is up to you, as organized women to take up your burden, to shoulder your work, part i of your work which was taken out of the home in the dim past of history, and bring these dreams to life." It was pointed out thnt the United Farm Women had beon Invited to ! name four members to be placed on j the executive of the social service ! league of Alberta. Young People's Work Alluding to tho young people's work, Mrs. Parlby said: "The Young People's Work of which you will later receive a report from the committee appointed to undertake this branch, has been held up for lack of local leadership, and also for the same cause which has held up the women's work.

It amounts to this, that if the food shortage cannot he met, hundreds and thousands of our allies will starve, and wo shall bo forced, after all our - ! sacrifice of life, to make a peace on German terms. Wo may try to evade 1 the thought, and like the ostrich hide our heads in the sand, but that will not help matters, What we are callod upon to do Is to produce, produce, aud at tho same time cut down by at least one fourth our consumption of wheat, beef ni\d bacon, so as to release as much as'dpsslblo for overseas. DonH Quarrel Over Prices The time is past when you and I could afford to parley over prices. Special committees afo looking after that side. Do you know it Is literally  both.

We have consecrated them this time on what we are told and believe to be, the Altar of the World's freedom. Now let us go further and see to it, as far as Ues. that they shall not have died, and that wq and womankind all over the world shall not have suffered in vain. I would go one step further and urge that a great International Council of Women from all countries be held at stated intervals, bo that we might rnmn \xi*n touch with each other. The mother heart is the same in all countries rataed above primitive savagery. The goodwill and Sympathy of the women of the world for each other, carried Into the home teaching and disseminated by propaganda, together with a knolwedge of the unspeakable horrors of modern warfare and the futility and fitupldity of It all, should help to create such a. public opinion against war that he would be a brave man indeed, be he president or Kaiser, who would dare to suggest that the noblest and most exclusive of all pro-Ua/iiom Is that of arms." , The sum traffic fines last year.
