Waiting for the signing of the ar-' mistice ending the fightingvon the west front was a strenuous busine^s.^ in the newspaper offices of the west,. and the Herald -^vas no exception to the rule. From, eleven, o'clock last Friday morning a practically ceaseless vigillhas been maintained by the Herald. On Saturday evening, after the news was received that,the German courier had crossed , the : French lin^ the news was liable to come any minute. As a result it was necessary to. keep open the Herald > leased wire every minute possible. On Saturday night the Herald ,kept open until late, then the operator, who had been on ^ty snatched; a few hours' sleep. � ,', On Sunday morning the wire opened at eight o'clocki and the operator, Mr. White, remained at hia'post until ten o'clock thafevening. At that time the day newspapers, owing to a dispatch from Paris stating ithat it was possible; an extension of time might, be granted Germany'owing to the chaotic conditions prevailing ii'thslt country, allowed the operators to go home,, but kept a string on them so tliat they could be called at an^ minute. | Atl-Ci this/tnorning the Canadian Press Winnipeg office shot out a flash stating that the arrnistiae had been-signed. This came to the G.P.R. yard office in Lethbridge, and immediately the operator called up the Herald news editor, who sent a taxi post haste for Operator White. Though he had been in bed only three hours he piled out and was sitting on the wire within fifteen minutes, and copied the\l dispatches which appeared in the extra announcing the end of the fight-. When the news editor and operator got on the job it was only a few minutes � imtil the composing room and press room staff were on the job too, ana within a few minutes the extra containing the big news was on the streets, and also on the trains leaving the city during the morning. It was a pleasant ending to a 72 .Hour watch. Prior to getting out -the armistice extra the Herald got out an extra covering the news-ctf the kaiser's escape to Holland and the spread of the revolution. This extra was placed on the early night trains to go to all parts of Southern Alberta. In connection with the handling of the news to the Canadian dally newspapers it is interesting to note- that the Canadian Press had , a little "scoop" all Its own. When the flash was received in New York, all the Associated Press operators in the United States were at Innch. The Canadian Press got the flash in Ottawa from Xew Yor';, and in nine seconds had relayed it to Vancouver and ail intermediate points. The Canadian Press_] had the flash across the continent be-1 fore the Associate Press had been able to flash it to Seattle and other coast points. " It was a great achiere-ment. , : ,^ "The extra with the armistice news was on sale 'before daybreak, and was also spread aUthrolugh the sur-riundiug country by trains aind automobile.- -In addition the Herald wired every town in, the territory the news j of the signing of the ajmiiBtice.
