THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. Uritlsh and French opened attacks on t!ie vestern front yostcrday which nettod them gains of a mile or more in depth and on a three or four miic front. In addition to this many prisoners were t.iken. There Is nothing new to report from the allied front. Possibllay of allied intervention of some kind In Huasl.i grows every day. The reports of the overthrow of the Bolshevik government are being accepted with reserve, until more definite and more reliable news is fonh-coniiug.

BER BOYS PLi eiGAIHLETIC � lET liAy CANADA'S FIFTY-FIRST ANNIVERSARY. V - lS(iM31S. On Monday Canada will celebrate tho; fijty-tirst anniversary of cfintcd-eratlon.

But Canada Is than har resources. She has iissumed  In. ihe �world of nations a place, which her. citizens have gained for hoi- by tlieir efforts in the great war. dfinada'" is greater to-day tha.n she was.^8.}^e:ir aso in the proportion that-"eiitf Ijfis" contributed men and materials of war during the past twelve months. S.he Is greater because she has accepted the principal ot compulsory military service in the war against German' militarism. Canada's .soul is ; e.^p^iid-liig in proportion as she is giving of her best to make the world safe against such crimes as have baen perpetrated by the Huns in the past four years.. . ., . So Mondays celebration of Canada's birthday is not merely an opportunity to mark tfur material growth.-It is our opportunity to take stock of our-ficlves to decide whether.each ot us, as an indivlduali is doing all, possible that Canada's part in the'wider field of world politics may be greater in tho fifty-second year of our country's history than in the year just closing. i "YANKS" OR "SAMMIES"- WHICH SHALL IT BE? The Vancouver Sun balks at the jCognomen "Sammies," So'dp we. To call VS. soklier Sammies is al'most da bad as calling a grown-up unan V/illie-and every Bill knows how that feels. Ot course the Idea in calling tho soldiers fioulh ot the line Sammies is to work in somoliow the fact that they aro lighting for Uncle Sam. But L'ncle Sam is a differeiit �ort bf guy altogether than Samm^. The QrltlBh, it .seems, persist in referring to thoir new Allies as ^h'e "Yanks" and by thia, cognomen  our^ American couBlns are apparently dcgr'. fined to be known in lilstory, whetJierj they like it or not. And It Isn't a_ bad namo ai thati By derivation it is supposed to be an' Indian corruption of the word "Eng^ lish," pronounced "Kngeese," and then by easy transition "Yankees," All through Latin America the people oi the United States ard , known as,Yankees, not in th,e least in ' a slangy or disparaging way, but bo-causB HieMcVni; "American" is liold to apply'p'rojiej'Jy to the. whole continent. - Tho only real objection to thii word comes, .Irooi. Uie Inhabitanta of the s.outhern states., Dijripg the qIvII war tliey wore accustomed toretor to the northerners contemptuously as "Yunks." Since Uxat time tlio souUi-oruur may havQ learned to iov*; lilis �nomy as himself, but to be calle-d a "Yank" seenjs _to'Jtli|i. l^o bBi^ratiiiir IJItO'ruliblrig It'In.

Naturally it .will not bo rocQiv'ecV with, vcr.v good grace. ospQclalty-as tiiere 'wai talk some tiino-a^o of-the pos-' slbiUty or.a .riite^."undfer'30 ntjlV. .

Tho rcduc-tlpn> in the assessment offsets any possible reduction }t\ tho mill rate, haitcej tor advertisfag purposes, the jrtii.e is nothing to boast about. The principal increase this year is due to the larger amount needed for public school purposes. An increase in requirements of nearly .$15,000 is shown. This is due to the higher salaries 'tlemanded-by the members of the teachlilg profeksioii, and ?lso to the fact that a growing school population demands a greater number of teachers'. ' '  .* � Hopes tor a lower tax rate for this year ^a.vo � t^ereldriS'l'een* "banisneli; Hopes of a- lower tax rate for some years to oome are also.baijishpd. Oqid item in yekterday's local news tells the reason. The amount of property reverting to the city through tlie failure of the'owmers to pay tiiclr tax arrears is this cause. Lethbridgo is not .the only city in the West that will hare higher tax ratos in future because of this reason. Every city in -Mherta will cbrae toltJust as soon as lax sales are staged. Tho Toronto Globe pays the .Montreal Gazetto a lef'4-handed compll. ment by saying:  A newspaper has been established in Vienna exclusively for tho aristocracy, the big busluess interests, and the Memliers of the Upper Chamhcr.
