Naturally the parade in the mot: ng, in which citizens young and ol joined in hearty accord, was the tea ure of the day. -.It was planned fo the allowing the people o Lethbridge to show that they wer not only good Albertans and Canad ians, but loyal subjects of Kin George as well.

Never be fore In Lethbridge has such a-grea shotting been made along this line and the gala appearance of 'the In every direction lent much to fohe en joyment of the day.

And our good friends, the newcomers from across the bor- der, entered into ihe spirit of the cel- decorating as well as the best of them, even if they did entwine "Old Glory" with the Union Jack to show that, while they ai'e now good Canadian they "still fiave fom! recollectirxis of their native country and the flag of which they are so proud. The Parade As before stated, the rain of the pre vious evening filled the hearts of many children who were to take part in the parade with many fears that they would at the very last be dis- appointed in the consummation of the dreams which had kept them awake half the night, and Induced them to leave their comfortable cots a couple of hours earlier in the morning than was their wont. But by nine o'clock the dutiful sun came out to gladden their hearts and they all piled off to where they -'-were to assemble ior the parade. Under the direction of Superintendent Hamilton, aided by the principals and teachers of the various departments, they were all gathered together at the Control School grounds, and by eleven o'clock were formed up in order for the par- ade. At least 1500 children, including those from the Convent School, in charge of A. V. Gibbons were massed together to learn what was to be to many of them one of their first lea- sons in loyalty. With appropriate ex- planations, the teachers passed am- ong them distributing the medals, which were especially the occasion, and little Union Tacks for each ne to carry during the par- ada. And it was a sight well worth seeing to behold those hundreds ol children of tender age display such interest' In the flag of their native! land. It was a fine lesson in lnm to those ,boya and girls who will in a short years be the men and women of'Canada under the protcci tion of the British flag. "ll would be impossible to fa'Justice to the parade.without making special mention to the Letbbridgo Schools Cadet BnUalion.

"Girls and boys.and children of he is a very pleas- g opportunity which has 'been afford nig in addressing you who have this morning 'been celebrating in hon- or of King George the Fifth, and thus inaking yourselves a part of the Brit- ish Empire.
