Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 9, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THF. LFTHI\l\inr�r. DAILY IIKIULD SATURDAY, MARCH �, WIS Won't Build Much Needed 1 Turin Branch this Spring Pretty positive assurance that there %1U be no now construction on Cue I?.R. branch linos, not even on :Ho much-needed iron Sprlnp.-'-Tnrin brunch, this your, whs Kiven the Herald this afternoon by Grant Hull, general manager of western lines of the C.P.R. who passed through here as to whether there any : pos.-ih: i;y of the Iron .--'pnncs branch ; wiUK built, in view of the larcely increased crop area in that i.-obite;! ilia-trie this year. "1 do no; expert si," said Mr. HhII. He intimated that there would b-v no new construction of any kind '-lis year. Mr. Hall finds crop prospects over the entire country very encouraging, ami expects a very much larger area under crop this year. lie found business conditions at the coast very brisk, resulting 'roni the big shipbuilding program that is taking shape there. ? > * > tempt of court in the clrcum-> stances." he added. ? The reference is to Mr. O-> Connor's refusal to produce clv- ? ilian ballots for recount as the time is past. > -�w-.iy March, tho ivitui Relecteii to !>e-forae.nctlin- chief oi !>\a[T and !at'.:r to succeed General Bliss ss permanent chief, with promotion to a full fjc-tipralship. say that from (he time he en-terra West Point ajul p!n>ed on the first football team the. Military Academy ever rind, his record has been one of aggressiveness initiative, organ izins: poiver. and o ftassion for giHtinc;- a thinir don.r Dunn* the Spanish-American war, In the t'isrhtvr.S' about Manila, tho fire from a blockhouse an a hii! just outside the American lines became so threatening- that General MncArtiiur saw it would have to be stopped at He called for n conimnndin; officer who would volunteer to take the enemy position. ' "I will." shouted Oaot-vn M-i--*, snd before the words mere well out of his mouth he wa� over the embankment with half a hundred of his �men behind him. They were artil-leirymen. and had no arms except revolvers. According to the rules, a c.harsre against a fortified position with revolvers couldn't succeed. But Captain March did it. This i? the way he has always worked. It is generally known that Genera! March went over with Pt-rshins- to have complete charj-e of the American artiilery forces on the front. The newspapers during the last few aays have borne testimony to tho tftectivencss of the American artillery methods, and officers and civilians returning- Islely Jrom Frjnce have bromrht back word cf the impression Gene-ral March lias created by energy and Flcili in oriraniza-tion of his branch of the service. Not a Martinet AX expert knowledge uf general figt.t'ing conditions is one u: t-he valuable qualifications of thenew efeief of staff. Ho knows from first ' hand how our mttuods of training "have worked out. He "knows the practical noces�.t:cs of equipment- what should be pushv-i and what may wait. There is the unanimous opinion among arm;,' men that Marc.h is the beit man for the high place to which he has been assumed. Many officers shanulessly take the "1-loid-yc.u-so" attitude after tne fact. They knew ail the time f.ha.t some day Peyton C. March would be the head of the army, although they iMdn'r. think it would come so �oon. After each one of a doze.n c-r more officers at the War Department had begun his personal contribution to the accumulation of facts and opinions about General March with the remark "he is a very strict disciplin-Rrian" the inquirer grets somewhat uneasy. He beg-ins to think of the disagreeable word "martinet" - and wishes that some major or colonel or briira.dicr would say that March was the salt of the earth cr a good fellow- or something else human, not instead of being- the strict disciplinarian but in addition to it. "You don't moan that he la a martinet, do you, when you say he is �K> strict In bis- discipline?" one general is aeked finally. "Peyton March a martinet? By no tneans!" exclaims the officer. "Lo^k ot eyes for the answer to that. All the. pictures of him that I have Be-en since he was appointed chief cf staff are bad because they y-how-bim with his eyes half closed. He always has them wide c-pen nnd tliey are full of fun and sympathy. A msrtinct is- ft fellow who is strict when it is not nay or contract. Estimates given.
