It will be noticed from these figures that the total cost to tlie Government incurred by the Southern Alberta Coinmitteo was $72,357.18, jir three fillths of one per cent, of life amount 'collqctod. I think I am quite sate in estimating from information received from time to time that two thirds, or nearly seventy per cent, of the am-'ount paid for comissions was turned over to tho Red Cross or other equally desirable funds, which is more evidence of the patriotic spirit underlying the whole of our organization. As this is the last statement I am likely to make regarding.the 1917 Victory Loan Campaign t would Ilka to thank the press for the splendid vol-, unlnry servico which tliey^so , cheerfully rendered and wlilcli' was the backbone of the whole^* undertaking. �^N'hon it comes to expressing my thanks and appreciation for the inag-nificent siiirit of co-operation in which the whole community respoudod, both ^Yorkers and aubscribors, words fail ine.
