APPEAL TO ALBERTA FOR SERBIAN RELIEF So many demands have heen made on public generosity as a result of the war that there might be hesitancy in presenting another if the needs were not so great. The Canadian public [have met all demands nobly, hut it i1? still safe to say that those who are staying at horns in peace are contrib- uting very much less than those who have gone to fight.for of human liberty. Compared with, some of the unfortunate countries of Europe Canada scarcely knows she is at war. One of the most unfortunate or the little nations, In whose cause our em- pire has taken up this great fight, is Serbia. It was the spirit of the Ser- bian people, which refused to abuse itself before Austria and Germany, that was used as a pretext by.those nations for this war, and Serbia has suffered for her liberty perhaps even more than Belgium, although the'dis- tress of the Serbian people lias not been so prominently before the Can- adian piibiie. The recent visit of Airs. Pankhurst to Calgary, resulted in the organiza- tion of a branch of the Canadian Ser- bian Relief society with Mr. J. S. Den- nis, assistant to the president of the Canadian Pacific railway, as presi- dent and Rev. Cox Clarke, of Cal- gary, secretary-treasurer. A commit- tee of prominent men and women complete the organization and an ap- peal is now made for "funds to assist the families of our destitute allies iu Serbia. Contributions may be made in goods but cash Is preferred as it can be forwarded more quickly and gives more immediate relief. Tho need is very great and it is felt that this appeal will not fall un- heeded by the people of Alberta. Al- ready somti substantial contributions have been received, and others, sent either to Mr. Dennis, or to Rev. Cox Clarke, 18th Avenue West, Cal- gary, will be promptly acknowledged and at onco placed In the way of as- ilatlng a noble people who are reduced to destitution by the ravages of war'.

SUNNY SOUTHERN ALBERTA (1916 Song of Alberta) I've reached the land of sun and rain; Conditions best for growing grain. The wind it blows with balmy breeze And brings the leaves out on the trees. Chorus Alberta land, sweet, sunny land; As on thy fertile soil 1 stand, I look away across thy fields And reckon "siity bushel For. in the growing month of Slay, Six inches the papers say. The farmer walks out to his Brain. 'Tis grown six Inches since the rain. He looks around his fields to see, No finer crops could ever be. We've plenty of hay and plenty of oats And plenty of feed to give our shoots. And on our rich alfalfa hay Our chickens lay two eggs a day. Our horses, Percheron aiid Shire, Bring top price from any buyer; They beat the high priced gasoline Which runs the motor trucks we've seen. The cattlo feed the year around On grass that grows on unplowed ground. Ill springtime they are sleek and fat; No flies on tell you that.
