"Canada is at war along with the other Dominions of the great British Empire. So our national birthday has greater significance than ever before in our historr. Latibridge and many other-points in the south country will celebrate the holiday this year and the patri- otic character of the 'day should be placed foremost The day offers occasions to preach real patriotism, to place before the younger people especially the history of Canada and the the reasons lor Canada's participation in the war.
