Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 31, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta 1 'V it w^>''-^ W-' tC I '/ 'I lit '""-?fr>'^,'\: even of sopie stranger, un-known to hini. However, perhaps I cannot state the law of good citizenship clearer than it Is stated thus in the rule of,Kant, 'Treat humanity, �whether in your own person, or in the person of others, as a person and never as a tool.' "It is not only in the questions of employment and education that our members will make themselves felt. Protect Child Life "The men who fought for the women and .children of Belgium and Prance will stand m Canada for the protection of our own child life and �will insist that it is the duty of the state to recognize its resppusibilities to the mothers of our race. Overcrowding and other such iniquitous conditions will disappear if only the G. W. V. A. present a united front for such conditions as shall tend to eliminate these degenerating elements that BO sap the intellectual and physical KtrongtU of the great body of tlie people, will do much good. What we must energetically strive for is to formulate some sensible plan that will bring about, not only cohesion, unity and harmony, but greater sympatliy between all the branches of the organization from coast to coast. The Year's Activities "A study of this report for the past year will Indicate, to some titiall extent, the many actlTltiet that: tnve en-Joyed the attention! ot the >necntiTe and the memben> of the Lethbrtdge branch. ; - ...�s/, "In July, 1919, it ^r^li decided that we should look into the matter o( having the duh houae./flzeAv.up to suit the convenience of the.members. Since then wo -have jnicde very good progress and approzibately fltteen thousand dollars have: been ipent In fixing the club upto what it Ib at the present time,''-.-i. "It was found.nedemary to appoint an assistant secretary for thr^ months in January ot this year In Order to got things normal agaih after the death of our late comrade and secretary, J. A. Tnrcotte. It was also found necessary to appoint an assis^nt steward for two months onfacicoiiht of tl|e work Increasing, ah^ll'ttaitik that the same ijirill be neceBiaii^^^lh future. "There have beett' 'tirenir general meetings held past term and detailed reports of each meeting have been presented to ttaev'euce^ding general meeting*. "There have been IMtr executlTe meetings during the "During the past teifift' I have been in oince there have hepii four hundred I and ninety-four new members added. I On July 1st 1919, the membership stood at three hundred" and flfty-six,' and now the membership is eight hundred and fifty. "Many matters have been taken np BUccesBfully for the bomrade's, approximately two thousand itix hundred and I forty letters having been written, exclusive of circular letters sent. Quite a large number of cases have been ad-Justed, such as land settlement, pay and allowance, war service badges, post discharge-pay, civil service complaints. "Of these the majority hate been settled satisfactorily while correspondence is ^tlll 'being exchanged in a few cases. Many pension complaints have been adjusted atter personal interviews wit^ the pension commissioner and a few cases of' deceaiied ~ soldiers' estate have been sucbessfuUy dealt with for the next of ktn. The Sport Activities J'ln ifegard to fqotbajl, as you are nrf dfettbt? ia*war6,t we were successfui last year in winning both the Scott Cup and the league, which was, as you. will agree, a splendid achievement. Our hockey boys, too, were successful in every match that they took part in in this district only, securing defeat when they went to 'Winnipeg and played Fort William, which was the first occasion on which a western team played in the seml-flnals for the Dominion amateur .championship. I have great ploa^ire in thanking the upholders of our sporting boys, and the results of what they have done go to prove that they are good Sports in peace times as they were In war. Thanks Club Ofnclala , "I also wish to take this opportunity of thanking our secretary and our caretaker for the splendid manner in which they have done iheir worlc. The secretary's duties haveheen both num-.ovous and difficult but in any case that was brought before him he was always willing and glad to do everything po'slble to bring about a favorable bottlement, and T believe that It was through his efforts and his alone, that 80 much was accompli.shed a.r.A thai we today are in the fiijanclal condition we are. No words ot mine- can express ouough thanks to our carotakpr for the manner in which he has carried out his' work.' His duties have been of a v^ry arduous/nature and through all the work of rebuilding our club rooms he has always been willing to be of any assistance. You can readily see that an awful lot of extra work was put on to him during the rebuilding period, but he always did his duty cheerfully and without a shadow of doubt we have the best kept and' cleanest club rooms in the' whole of tM Dominion. "You will see by this report that a large amount of business and a lot of., hard work has been accomplished by^ boththe officers and the members of our organisation, but before I close ly as your retiring president, ask yott all to give your incoming officers a little more cdnslderatlon and appreciation ot their efforts as without the help ot every individual membesr the work of any organization is severely hampered and if we Intend to make our organisation the success that It deserves to be it is absolutely necessary that we all put our shoulders to the wheel and help each other. By this means alone can we ever hope to make' the O. W. V. A., in general, and our local In particular, the best organization 'in' the DoHiinion of Canada, both .financially and morally. Public AtslBted Splendidly "In conclusion I would like to draw to your attention the amount of assistance, both financially and otherwise, that we have received from the Federal government, the provincial government and the city of Lethbridge, the commissioners a,va the public generally. They have given us freely of i their assistance and advice whenever' we had occasion to ask it of thiein. Numerous time4 have I interviewed leading business men in this city and in other citlei on different topics, and I am prOiid to say that I have always ibeea treated as a gentleman and th^ points I had under discussion were al-ways without exception, acceded to vis by them* "Therefore, comrades let us now ca^t aside all personal differences and realizing the lofty princfples of bur association, strite with untiring persistence to further the noblest interests, not alone of our organization, but of, the glorious heritage-Canada, so that the spirit of that idearly remembered, that great silent army, of those who are resting beneath the popples of France and Belgium, will be ever with us, filling our hearts with the most sublime Ideals, coupled with the trur est benevolence. And let us strive to keep that same spirit of democracy, one for kll, and all for one, in the way i we kept it overseas. Then ideed Will we become a mighty force, a power In the Dominion to which we are so proud to belong." Others officers elected were: Honorary president, Brigadier-General i Stewart; Ist Vice-President, Dr. Wray; I 2nd Vice-president, Jock Anderson; ex-1 ecutive: W. LInning, G. Masson, S,* Troman, Chuck Wray, M. A. Morrow, Jack Davis, Sgt. at Arms, H. Mcllvena; The Rhyming Optimist (By/Allne MIohaells.) CHANGES IN BETTING LAWS DO NOT MAKE TRACKS PAY GOV'T OTTAWA, May 29.-(By Canadian Press.)-Th6 proposed amendments to the criminal code limiting race track betting to the pari-mutuel system and limiting the profits of racing associations to a percentage of the money wagered on each race, make no provision for payment of any percentage of such money wagered to the Dominion in the form ot taxation, it is stated officially. JAPAN'S N'EW CHAMBER OF COMMERCE Now, you mayfinot have noted before, the coalmMi gets sad then the ictf mangetsihadrand you'll find this Is true the fbrld o'er. It's an 111 wlnd^i indeed,! so I've heard, that does not blo,k'good to some bird, iind I'guess "that is why as the Winter'slips by every ice man to rapture Is stirred. And the coal man iA gloomy and sore as the chick-a-dee-chirps at his door, but tb$ chaps who buy coal do not heed the poor soul,and the icebox now copiea: to the fore. You of the beauties of Spring, when the robiha-are fixing to sing, and there jsnlt la doubt when the stoves are ttfbyed ott^ that wo all feel like hf^vlng our fling. But for honest excess of delight, it's likely there's no 6ne in .||ight who can equal the Joy bfthe ice man; Oh, Boy, we'll say he li'heppy, all right. So, unheeding the coal m^n's sad noise, we will some t\r�y iOfag on to pur poise, for the ice ii^n ,dra^ws nigh and what geezer could^sigh in the warmth of the smile h� employs? It's an ill wind, the provf^b assumes, that cannot put s^ds:'on some glooms, and that proverb seems wise when we measure tlie size of the ice man's wide grin as Spring blooms. And it certainly must b^ Tight nice, if one is a dealer in i^e. Just as Winter flees hence to find icicle's price. Now, ot course when the Winter has flown, the coal man ^ill mutter and moan. And he feels he's all hi, biit the ice man can grin, for the ice box comes into its own. TO SEE THE CITY Plans for AtftoSight-Seelns Trip -^Banquet Later in the Masonic HMI.
