President Sam Porter gave a gen- eral outline of the program of the conference. The business and social activities took the delegates from Fort William to Port Arthur continu- ally. The arrangements for catering were excellent and the combined club ot" Port Arthur and Fort William to great lengths to make the visit of the Rotarians one Iqng to be remem- bered, i However the small turnout was appointing. Arrangements had .been! made on the attendance of the prev-! ious year, when tilose to seven bun-i dred Rotarians with their wives wont to Calgary. The armouries proved to be too big for speech making, the speakers making themselves heard with great difficulty. Mr. Porter an- nounced that the next conference will likely be held in Reglna. Two Conferences Hugh Crawford reported on a round table conference held on education. The matters he brought, before the meeting were nf interest only to the Hotarians as they dealt with the con- ducting of meetings and the stimulat- ing of interest in thorn, as, well as the developing and encouraging the j true Rotary spirit. The report of Peter Lund on round j tublc conference on boys' work was of'more interest to the public. This j was the first conference attended Mr. Lund and lie told his fellow mem- j bers lie was puzzled at first as to how ho could bring back to'them matters that would he., of benefit. He told of thn account given at the confer- once by President Sam of the doings of the Lethbridgc club during tho past i year and said that this club need not be ashamed of its record. Mr. Lund received a compliment from former governor for the j Bplemlid record of the club. Gover- j nor Jack said, "Peter I don't wonder; that you are proud of Sam and the nnllre membership and tho record of club." Mr. Lund in his report continued: ''This is the message that I want to while it may seem at times that progress is slow and dis- j appointing we have, nevertheless, I made splendid progress and given pood account ot ourselves. We have t.ho best president and secretary in dlitrict, the subjtantial board creating clean and orderly surround- ings, clean and wholesome topics for j discussion, a high order of thinking and living, all of which will greatly as- sist in solving our health problems. "Rotarians should support all or- ganizations and movements, that have for their object higher idffals, loftier purposes, whose aims are for the gen- eral betterment, comfort, security and happiness of mankind, Rotarians should not convey the idea that their club exsists 'or the purpose oE solv- ing for the community all its petty ilia and difficulties, but more parti- cularly to see that all bis and worthy movements for the welfare of the com- munity are put orer the top success- fully, particulftrly projects that- have for their aim the welfare of our boys and girla.

Proper recogni- tion must be extended to those who are given the responsibility of educat- ing and training in the schools.
