Talk about, a campaign of "frlRhtfulncss" the Dominion Publicity Committee hap hit the Idea with It* Mogans-Its banner* and ntrenmern Its acreain linen. For 'instance: "Stop! Look'.'. Tjioh-' *n!!!

Thf-so are hut a few of thn splendid I ar-rinon.s that the more wlndown ami the hoarding will preach to us during the next few weeks. Uut the Dominion ' Publicity Committee does not confine Itself to tloRRns. Its educational campaign embraced, every form of advertising. The idea Is to reach everybody and to keep the important facts In connection with \iur participation In the war before their eyes. By new^s-. papers, booklets and bulletins, posters and Htreamars, by painting; and car i toons, the serious and the frivolous i uldeti of the campaign will be exploited. Mr. K. H. Wood, Chairman of the (Victory l.onn, ban written u booklet, 1 reviewing Canada's part In the great world struggle and her splendid fin-uncial position. Another feature is "The A. H. C. of the Victory J.oun. 191S." Over 2,000,000 copies bnvo been printed lor dlHtrlhutlon. Some of the striking pictures which drive home to everyone thn importance ^f the Lijun may he mentioned. A picture of the sinking of the Llandovery Cmtlo shows a soldier swimming and holding up u Hed Cross nurse while the I'-boat commander discharge* his revolver at them. "Flanders Fields" .shews a soldier with hoail uncovered looking on a field of popples; while still another shows the . women of France pulling plowa in th" fields and underneath life Inscription: "Thoy Serve Franco, How can 1 Serve Caniuiii?"i dale canvassers have turned in a to-; district, headquarters. The first can-tul of �20,000 out of the 125.000 quota , vassers appointed all became sick and and expect to go over the top today. a gncond army of canvassers was ap- pointed to take their place.

Southern Alberta executive reiers to these difficult lea because if they were not set out in this way the public would never appreciate the heroic effort which is being made by ihe organization throughout to put Canada's Victory Loan over the top.
