Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 8, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta P\GE TEN THE LETHBRIDGR DAILY HERALD FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 1918 DON'T LIKE THE BY JUSTICE DUFF Will Seriously Affect the Banking Interests of Country, v Bankers Say Local bunking circles are not inclined to view favorably the decision of t!ie central appeal judge, Mr. Justice Huff, that bank clerks and other officials should not be exempt from military service. As a matter of fact, the feeling is along the same lines as that cipreased by eastern banking officials . in dispatches today, that the decision �will prove disastrous for the financial affairs of the entire country. Probably a doeen clerks in the Lethbridge banks ar� affected by tbe new order, but the greatest effect of the decision will bo felt in tbe country brandies, particularly in the west. It is pointed out that country branches are manned chielly by unmarried managers who are securing their inlttal experience as managers in the smaller places. ' These managers will all be liable for service under the new decision, if physically fit, and it is altogether likely that many of their assistants will also fall under the new order. This would completely disinann country points of experienced banking officials, something which is vitally necessary 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 every available line of credit is being utilized to crop big I areas and make the production cam- ipalgn urged by the government a suc- i cess. ! It is pointed out that the banks of ! Canada have already contributed largely to the war in the way of men, hav-� ins given 7000 employees out of a total lof 12,000 or 13,000. If the new deci-j sion of Mr. Justice Duff is carried ln-I to effect, the banking system will be very seriously undermined, in the belief of most banking official!. PLAN TO PUT HUGE Farmers Are Bending Every Effort To Crop Every Possible Acre of Land GROCERIES Owing to the high cost of delivery we have decided to try out a CASH and CARRY System. This will not effect the regular trade but will give the shopper an opportunity to save, which is the duty of every one. REGULAR.SYSTEM \L�rd, per 3 H>. pail .....

EDMONTON OFFICE-3 CRISTALL BLOCK OF ALBERTA i  Lethbridge Constituency) ? The U. F. A. convention brought out the fact that all of the constituencies i in Alberta. Lethbridge was almost I without a U. F. W. The query was,! J -Why?" j ! It might be well to look into the ! ! aims of the organization and see if we do not need to have a part in its work. Of necessity, the farm woman lives  an isolated life; but human nature : craves companionship. The home life . lnay be ideal with many or all of the ' accessories which help make life more complete but when we have these only our vision becomes shortened, our views biased, our selfishness intensi-. fied-and by nature mankind i3 prone to selfishness. The well rounded man or woman is 'the one who mingles with others, getting their outlook on life and assimil-. ating for 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 body. The day is past when the farm wo- � man is looked upon as a different species of the sex. Today she has her own niche in the world to fill and it is not a cramped one. It has been proven that more work can be accomplished by a collective body than by the individual; hence we find men ' and women working in groups to carry out the plans of the different avocations.- ! Farming has ceased to be a haphaz-! ard job either in the fields or house. � We are gradually applying scientific , principles in both. This has led us not only to applying these principles ' to the home proper but to the community. A.noted speaker said: "Show me the mother and I'll tell you what kind ot a man her boy will be." Our country-is going to need strong, upright men. War is depleting our number. The boys of today will be the men of tomorrow. We need to study motherhood as never before in order to train ; these boys to be the best possible citizens.* To be this they must not only have : the home- training but the best education possible in order to grapple I with and handle intelligently the prob-lems of horn* and country. Are the : rural schools doing this? If not, why | not? As women it is our business to ! study this question. If the schools are I not doing the best possible for the ! children let us find the remedy and { see it is applied. "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy"---also Jill-be they six, sixteen, or sixty. The plans for neighborhood recreation must come from the women. They can think and plan for this as they go about the household tasks. How many women know whether the laws of. our country are good for them and their children? If not, investigate-some of them will appal you. We need sensible legislation for both. Get ready to aok for it and know how to ask to get it. Women have asked for the franchise. It is theirs. How many know how to use it wiBely? Let us learn. Have the youth of rural communities the church and Sunday school privileges they require? If not, what can we as women do to help? In the great cataatrophy which haB overtaken us, our soldier lads need us through the Red Cros3 and the Military Y. M. C. A, Here we will not fail, neither must we fail in the other things. These are some of the things the U. F. W. are doing, and we find we can do not only more but better work through concerted action. It is not difficult to organize. Apply either to the director ot the constituency or the provincial secretary for i pamphlets on the subject. When ever i It is possible the director will meet with any group of women numbering five or more and help them in their work. Some say "We can't do these things." Try and aee. What others i have done you can do and the TJ. F. W. i has found the U. V. A. over ready to ! help them. Every community needs ; both the U. F. A. and the U.F.W. as j these organisations deal with the rural problems, and Canadian life is largely rural. I "If we do not do the work we were ! meant to do, it will forever remain un-j done. In the annals of eternity there , will be some: good lacking that we might have provided, some reward un-be3tn\ved that we might have had: there will be something incomplete in Toronto, Mar. S.-The problem of obtaining medical men for the army medical corps in this militia district is engaging attention. "Wo have just enough for the service, but we have not many to come and go," stated j Lieut. Col. E. S. Ryerson, in an interview yesterday. "During the last month we have sent 17 medical men overseas and we have received about three to replace them." He stated it was expected by the middle of April to get quite a number from the graduating class of the University of Toronto. Major General Logle stated that it was true that the personnel of the medical service was only just enough to carry on the work. "If an officer is takon off for any emergency duty some other part of the service must suffer," he said. all the everlasting years. Oh. the sorrow of opportunities neglected, slighted, or despised! Today is, for all we know, the opportunity and occasion of our lives. We do not know where the influence we exert today will end.'' London, Mar. S.-(Via neuter's Ottawa Agency). - A Reuter dispatch from British headquarters, says that the weather is ideal, hence the great aerial activity. The statement continues: "We yesterday destroyed many aeroplanes, driving down at least a score of others. The Germans continue their raiding, but with very limited success. The Belgians brilliantly acquitted themselves on March 6, on the occasion of a German raid on a two kilometre front against Beyeldyke and Re-gersvllet. The operation employed wbb manifestly well rehearsed. After beating back the raiders the Belgians counter-attacked splendidly, behind an intense barrage. Despite the determined resistance of 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."
