THE PROGRESS OF-THE WAR Busslan foreign Minister Trotzky ha* been Instructed to resume peace aegotlations at Brest-Utoysk. These negotiations' will jirobably only, be canned on with a view to making a sitparnte peace with Austria. The RumanlanB have broken into opm warfare with the Bolaheriki, and many battles are being reported. TbaFinlandera also are ready to declare war if the oppreasions of the BolsheTtki are not immediately withdrawn.' .The Germans are showing increasing actirity on the western front, with hoary artillery bombardments and hoinerous raids.. OUR POSTQ^FICE DEPARTMENT It NOT RESPONSIBLE Ttie-.\l(ianipeg Free Press critlciies the .Canadiaa postoitfjce deparEmeht lor a recent order preventing the sending of' bundles > of .ne,wflpapera orer-seaa,' T&e trnth^ to-that the Canadian poatoffice department ii not. to blame. Great BrlUin has ordered that only one:paper to a parcel, can enter the United Kingdom and as, it is .Great Britain's huailneas, Canada and other cottntrie's can't'do'otherwise thui;con-fonn. Relative^ of soldiers located in Britain, will dislike the order, but there must be a good reason for It or Great BrlUln would not have Issued it Papers addressed to France, can go,' la any quantity, as we understand the ruling. The limitation to one paper is confined whoily to the United King-don; a GOOD WEAPON FOR THE FARMER Thousands of mien.have been exempted, from military service because they are tanners, and when they were given the exemption It was with the onderstandlng that they should remain on the farm. That means a great deal to  the farmer. The shiftless blred man, and the restless farmiar's ado, know now, that they muit stick to (arm work. If-they evade it, military service is ^n prospect. Official eyes will be upon them and If they fail to atar with the (arm and be actual prodncera thisy will be taken and placed la nnlfarm. Hierefdre, the MiUury Service Act should make the ejtenpted hired man or farmer's son (arm. without the farmer having to coax them to work. Military service is* the farmer^i weapon to keep the nempted (e)^Vs busyi '\ y THE Y.IW.C^ AND ITS , PLACE IN LETHBRIDGE ~A perusal of the reports presented St the ansnal meeting ot the Y.M.C.A. ahQws that'the past year has-been Important^ and tinanciaily. probably the most suceeaafnl inits history. "The beginning bt 1917 pointed to a strenu-' ous year ahead-money borrowed from t:: the alnklng fund would have,to be re-paid; more money was owing to the ;i : Imnk; Important repairs to the build-, ' Ing were urgently needed. Over against I' .this it was recognised that war. funds held first claims on the public. It ' therefore" must have'* been gratifying to the directors, and, an evidence of Secretary BickeU's efflcieat ' dffice management to find at'the end ot the year that all these liatlllllBS bad been ,. aatlsfactorlly arranged-^Interest to the '' bank; debenture payments for the ' ' ,W{>ole year, and i all rtpairs were paid R' 'tone item of repairs ofi boilers alone l^ounted to'.$700,00).

Since we necessarily iiiust do considerable thinking about the building, we should at put as. much, thought in how to use the,building. Obviomly, the gymnasium Is a big feature I In- connection with Y.M-C.A. work. In this deparltaent, George MsfcKIHoUi phirslcal director la doing good'Work-^the girls, ladles, and boys clashes are'receiving splendid instruc-tioh. .The *bung man are featuring basketball and developing Interest In the-^mo, but. It strikes us that tho physical classes for boys at lenst are far totf small and there are othera who have an Idea that Uie activities ot the "y." might be extended and Intensified in the boys department at least It may be that no one In Lethbrldge has made a study ot Y.M.C.A. work but the time has come for some one or more ot our citizens to make a studj ot It A little more co-operntlon among those who built and help to maintain the "Y" would be a good thang. Why is it that a\tch a small percentage of out teen-age boys are taking the privileges ot the '"iV Who knows the reasont How can these boys be brought Ipto the "Y?" The majority ot oar cltlsens support the institution on account ot:what it can do tor the boy so we ought to get the boy into the "Y" and put on a program that will hold h'itn there, ^^ore expense will ba incurred of course but the small addittonal outlay will help make the present ontlay effective. The salary ot a bpy's secretary would help make the present $935.00 a month outlay do its work. We seldom hear the "Y" mentioned in Anr churcttes. What do our churches expect of the "Y?"' Who is gding to.find this out? i^o the churches want the 'Y" to do their in-ptiCutional work? If not, times have chsnged.alace the "Y" was built We hope a general survey of the situation will be made by the new board and something done to clear up the Im-pres'sion in ^bme minds that we are not getting together to get the fullest j ssrvlce (rom the "Y." The fact that only SO people attended the annual meeting would Indicate that more general interest might be taken. . Fmb-ahly the pnblic is not to blame for not attending this meeting. Somebody is. j Who is'it? Who is going to find out who is responsible? Who is going to get a keener Interest in the future? A glance at the minutes shows that some ot the directors attended .the meetings of the bosrd regularly last jjear, others very poorly. Every member ot the neir :}M>ard should make an effort to bear bis share of the load and It he cannot attend meetings, say so, at the beginning of the year and step aside to ^make way for someone else whoVcah and will. But we understand the :m'eniberB of the new board have, been'approached and their consent to act sechred:^ �' The war Isjon, nearly all our young men are away, It is difficult to know Just' what the. program at .the "Y" shonld be. We hope however, that the new board will invite suggestions and make every effort to secure'cooperation. U our "Y" can help our boys to build manhood let us devise some means to get thej boys Into the. "Y." Those Interested In th(| boy and the "Y," should be able to wofk put the plan. The tact that the "y" had a good year last year, is the best reason why It should have d better year in 1918.

That wos the quoat'on chiefly debated at the Forum yesterday afternoon following Mr. Keel's nddre.'j.'i on Palestine and.the Jews. Mr. Keel spoke tor only 20 minutes or so, but his address was very inter esting, though purely historical. He traced the history of the Jewish race from Its escape from captivity In Egypt down through the ages, and dwelt upon Ui.e persecution of his race in all the countries. Ho told how the Jews had found. freedom under British rule, and ot how the Jews had become prominent not only in business but'in the state lite ot Great Brita'n. He said tbe Jews would now be able to return to their homoland tuid establish onre more tho reign at r ght-eousness throughout the world. Mr. Cocq, in the discussion follow lug, said he was disappointed that Mr. Keel had not touched on the movement He doubted If the j9w himself was willing to go back to Palestine, a country ot which only one-eleventh was fit tor agricultural production. He said the Jew was characteristically unadapted to sedentary labor, and he said that before the Jews could re-establish life extensively In Palesfne systems ot retorestratlon and Irrigation would have to be installed, and there would havi3 to be an alteration in Jewish; characteristics. Mr. Allen's contribution to the dis-cuss'on was that the restoration of-the Holy Land was but the fulfilment of Scripture, and Mr. Cooling tollowed the same line by saying that he Believed the hope of the Jews was that they would return to Palestine and that the Messiah would return to rule over his chosen people. Mr. McNab also followed much along this line, saying that Great Britain was the chosen nation to restore the Holy Land for the Jews. Mr. Hlg'nbotham, who had visited Palestine some years ago, disagreed with Mr. Cocq that the land was almost a desert, as he said the parts that were tit tor agricultural production were most extraordinarily fertile, and the Jews who resided there were using ancient methods of cultivation whch merely scratched the soil. What would production bo undbr modem methcds it with crude methods it was high. Mr. Symonds believed that the Jews would not go back to the Holy Land a8( the high school in which he soars.
