ITALIANS HERE HAVE BEEN CALLED Nearly i 00 Ready to Go But Only Small Number Yet Required Between 75 and 100 Italians in tlie city of Lethbridge are ready at a mo- ment's notice, to answer the call of the homeland. Of this number it is possible that only a few will come in the class of 1876-1895, which includes the ages between 19 and 29. iLieut. C. Marinaro has received a communication from the Italian con- sul at Calgary calling Italian reserv- ists to htfld themselves in readiness to depart for Italy. The circular letter reads as "The Italian government calls the clans Irom 1876 tp'l.S95 to be ready at the official cafl of the government. The Italian gpyernment will provide transportation to Italy, ail the officers to leave at and for information to write the Italian consular agent at Calgary." Lieut.. Marinaro himself, having been born in 1870, ia six years beyond the age limit. He is very disappointed and hopes that the next class will Boon be called. There are no other of- ficers in Lett-bridge. Although there are between three and four hundred Italians in the city, nearly 300 of these are from tlie Aus- trian provinces of Istria. Consequent-, ly. they -come under Austrian control, and Italy has not the power to for them. In spite of this fact, it Is probable that many will volunteer to fight for Italy, for they are Italians at heart, though nominally Austrian subjects.
