Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - November 13, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta vpAGEElGlfT TUESDAY, NOVEMBER. 13, 1917 Tl Eleven Applications For Exemption are Refused ; It Is becoming pretty generally mi-.derstood about the city that exemp-.tlons from military service are not to be had for the mere asking. The re-corcl o� the tribunal sittings each day �go a long way to prove the tact. Yesterday theee were 22 claims for exemption cohslrtored. Of these 11 wore refused outright. Two were granted conditional exemptions. Two were 'transfeiTed to Class 2. Four exemptions were granted so long as the iip-.plieants remain in the positions they now occupy. One man was physically unfit, while two cases were only partly heard. The first appeal from the finding of the local tribunal was entered yesterday by a jobbing firm on behalf of one of its travellers In (his district. Tiie board held that the occupation was not necessary in this case. The company entered an appeal to a higher (.curt on behalf of the applicant. A young farmer, owner of land in the district east of the city, was granted exemption this morning. His exemption, however, is not absolute. So 'long as he owns ar.d c-.'.itivate? hl.s land he is entitled to exemption, but should he sell his exeijiptlon would cease. The C.P.R. is asking exemption for all men in the district in its employ but it must be shown that the occupations of the men are absolutely nece�-s:i ry. There is some criticism of the tribunal on the ground that its actions are secret. This is incorrect. The public is admitted. The Herald has been present al various sessions, but is not allowed to publish names of the applicants. There Is no secrecy about the work of the board. Corrects Wrong Impression There seems to be some misjjnder-standlng among persons of alien birth as to the necessity of registration under the Military Service Act. The district commanding Bfficer has advised that all persons of alien birth and citizens of Canada should register under the act and claim exemption if the nation of their birth is at war with Great Britain and her allies. All Austrians. Germans, Turks, etc.. who have been naturalized should register immediately and claim their exemptions under the act Inasmuch as some persons m FRUIT Keep* the World Refreshed and Healthy The Delightful Tonic Aperient =7- Better than any other cocoa on the market-and better because onlj^ the finest and most expensive products are used in the manufacture of Cowan's Perfection Cocoa.

BORDEN m OF NECESSITY OF LOAN Halifax, Nov. 13.-The victory loan represents the necessarily urgent efforts towards defeating Germany by those at home who are anxious to assist the men fighting in the trenches to carry on to completion thS nation's purpose. Sir Robert Borden reminded the members of the Rotary Club at a luncheon tendered him today. The premier alluded to the fact that in asking fof money, for the loan people were nofrequested to give-funds. They were, he said, asked to loan it, at the best security known in the world today. The DominI,qars security was acknowledged in the^iluropeon and American continent^ i^ir Robert sketched the financial op6ratiohs in the Dominion since the- war broke out. He referred to the enormous success of the past loans,' notwithstanding that a leading financier had told Sir Thomas White three years ago that It would be impossible to raise 115,000,000 if unguaranteed by the bankers. He hoped citizens of-Halifax would regard the big order laid upon tueui as a compliment. - Sir Robert explained the necessity l^or the loan to market Canada's productions as Great Britain had reached the end of her' financing ability here. There was the necessity for cooperation in this country as never before, he urged. In the trenches, the prime minister remarked, he knew, the soldiers were supremely confident of their ability : to defeat the Hun if sustained. It I would be an eternal humiliation if we neglected any effort to support them. In conclusion Sir Robert Borden paid a warm eulogy to the action of the Rotarlans in adopting and fostering the boys of soldiers at the front. ---1- I ELECTRICALLV CONTROLLED i B0AT8 QUEBEC ACCLAMATIONS Montreal, Nov. 13.-Two .new Liberal members of tae legislative assembly were elected by acclamation yesterday-Mr. W.
