Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 10, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta VOLUME VIII. LETHBRIDGE, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, NUMBER 286 Greeks Adopting a Less Unfriendly Attitude to Allies in Matter of Passage to Sea London, Nov. Greek gov- ernment appears to be adopting a less uncompromising altitude, says the Athens correspondent of Router's. It is believed to be seeking a satisfactory solution of the question as to its at- titude toward the Allied troops which might'take refuge in Greek territory, although it hesitates to make a de- claration ,in the form demanded by the Entente Powers. The correspondent says King Con- stantine has expressed a desire to see Earl Kitchener, who is now in the Near East, and discuss tlie situation .him from a military stand- point. It is clear that the entente powers which is England's detention in home ports of a "fleet of Greek merchant- j 'men. Greek shipping is making cnor- mous profits out of the war and even f temporary check on its activities would mean a great loss. RAISE FIRST DAY OF PATRIOTIC FUND CAMPAIGN Germans Stated Ready for Appeal to U. S. to Go to the Allies With Oiive Branch The Patriotic Fund campaign In the Lethbridge constituency got off to a most encouraging start. At noon today the captains of the teams and others of the workers gathered at the Hudson's Bay Co. dining room and had lunch. Re- port of progress was made, the first day's canvass bringing in over five thousand It is felt that with a generous response from the citizens still to be call- ed upon, this city will raise the al- lotment fixed by the South Alberta branch of the Fund. A striking feature of the canvass so far has been the splendid response from persons with small incomes. In several cases girls in offices and stores agreed to contribute two and three dollars a month to the fund, A. very generous contribu- tion that delighted the workers and shows the fine patriotic spir- it of the company was the sub- scription ,of from the Elli- son Milling Co., through. George W. Green, the general manager. The employees of the mill will also make a contribution. The Hudson's Bay Co. made a sub- scription of for the local branch. The company gives to the fund at every place where they have a store, and the total contribution throughout the west will reach a very large figure. The monthly payment plan is en- abling to contribute a large amount spread over a year. The campaign will proceed until the entire city and surround- ing district in the Lethbrtdne lo- cal constituency has been can- vassed. The nlining towns and the farmers west of the river will all be given an opportunity to contribute to this worthy and patriotic cause. PREPARE FOR WORST IN BALKANS Y. S.
