Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 8, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE TEK THE LETHBRIDGE DON'IIIKEM BY JUSTICE DUFF Will Seriously Affect the Banking Interests of Country, V Banlcers Say Iroc�1 banking circles are not Inclined to Tiew favorably the UecUlon of i the centra! appeal judge, Mr. Justice \ Dutt, that Imnk clerks and other officials should not he exempt from mill- , tary service. As a matter of fact, the feeling Is alcmg the same lines as that I oapressed by eastern banking officials i in dispatches today, that the decision Tvlll prove disasta-ous for the financial , affairs of the eniire countrj. , Probably a doeen clerks In the Leth- '. bridge banks ara affected by the new order, but the greatest effect of the decision will be felt In the cownlty branches, particularly in the weat. It is pointed out that country branches are manned chlelly by unmarried managers who are securing their initial esperlenco as managers In the smaller places. These managers will all be liable for service under the now decision, If physically fit, and it is altogether likely that many ot their assistants will also fall under the new order. This would, completely dlsniann country points of experienced banking otflciala, something which li vitally necessaiT at the present time in view of the financing of the coming crop season when every effort Is being put forth by the farmers and .when even" available line of credit is being utillred to crop big areas and make the production campaign urged \)% the government a success. ^ It ig pointed out that the banks ot Canada have already contributed largely to the war in the way of men, having given TOOO employees out of a total ot 12,000 or 13,000. If the new decision ot Mr. Justice Duff Is carried into effect, the banking systtm will,be very serloutly undermined. In the belief ot most banking ottlclalt. Owinf to the high cost ot dcUvery we have decided to try out a ^ Sytton. This wiD not effect the regular trade but will ^ye the shopiMr an opportuuty to save, which is the duty of every one. 1.05 1.65 3.30 40e 60c 2.10 2.25 ;;r..^.^^.:'Xl45 RECOLAR.

According to tho otficers ot the camp the aviator was uninjured when the machine so com^lato-ly wreckisd tho telegraph llDM. Tho V. F.

It might be well to look into the aims ot the organization and see if we ! do not need to have a part in its work, j Of necessity, tne farm woman lives j an Isolated life; but human nature i craves companionship. The home life ^tnay be ideal with many or all of the ; accessories which help make lite more ' complete but when we have these only i onr vision hecomes-shortened, our : views biased, our selfishness intensi-, tied-and by nature mankind 1� prone ^ to selfishness. j The well rounded man or woman Is � the one who mingles with others, get-: ting their outlook ou life and assimil-gating tor themselves the best they so . receive. An afternoon spent with a ' group of women sends each one home with a new viewpoint on something, /maybe a homely household task or a : thought on better community interests. ' It gives rest both to mind and hody. The day is past when the farm woman is looked upon as a dlftereiu j species of the sejc. Today she has > her own niche in the world to fill and ' it is not a: cramped one. It has been j proven that more work can be ac-1 complished by a collective body than i by the individual; hence we find men I and womeh working in groups to carry 1 out the planp of� the different avoca- tiona.- �  �  ------ ' I^rmJng haa ceased to be a haphaz-ard-'job. .the fields or house. �We.-:are gradually ; applying- scientific principles in both: .

"Wo have lust enough for the service, but we have not many to come and go," stated Lieut. Col. E. S. Ryerson, In an Interview yesterday. "During the last month we have sent 17 medical men overseas and wo have received al>out three to replace them." He stated it was expected by the middle ot April to get quite a number from the graduating class of the University ot Toronto. Major General Logic stated that it was true that the personnel ot the medical service was only Just enough to carry on the work. "If an officer Is taken oft tor any emergency duty, some other part of the service mast suiter." he said. all the everlasting years. Oh. the sorrow of opportunities neglected, slighted, or despised! Today is, for all we know, the oppbrtunity and occasion of our lives. We do not know where the influence we exert today will end.'- WITH HEAVY LOSSES Belgians Brilliantly Acquitted Themselves-Took Prison-, era and Guns London, Mar. 8.-(Via Reuter's Ottawa Agency). - A Renter dispatch trom British headquarters, says that the weather is ideal, hence the greet aerial activity. The statement continues: "We yesterday destroyed many aeroplanes, driving down at least a score ot others. The Germane continue their raiding, but with very limited success. The Belgians brilliantly acquitted themselves on March 6, on the occasion ot a German raid on a two kilometre front against Beyeldyke and Re-gersvllet. The operation, employed was manifestly well rehearsed. After beating back the raiders the Belgians counter-attacked splendidly, behind an intense barrage. Despite the,determined resistance ot the enemy, the Germans were steadily driven back into their own lines with heavy losses. The Belgian attackers took 84 prisoners, 8 machine.guns and a quantity ot rifles and bombs." To the Bditor, Lethbridge Herald:- .
