Brought up in a coun- try where peace has reigned for a cen- tury, they had not thought it was ever possible that Canadians would partici- pate iu armed conflict. This war, however, offers an op- portunity to the'children to cultivate a greater love of country. They know now that Britain stands for freedom and justice, and when they are brought to realize that the defeat of Britain aad her Allies might end free- dom and justice in this land their in- terest in the welfare of the Allies is increased. The movement of the Daughters of the Empire to stimulate love of coun- try amongst Lethbridge school child- ren has very much to commend it.

Ont of this money the child can make his gift to the fund to provide comforts, for the soldiers. I is better that the contribution shouli be a sacrifice. It will be a good les son for the child.

Seemingly, the born Canadian is a bit backward at flght- ng for his King and Country. Leth- iridge young men, Canadian-born, should follow the lead of the Hender- son boys and Joe Gillespie. The motto 'Vour King and Country Need has appealed to these three young men; then why not to the rest of the Lethbridgfrborn. Young Canadians, heed Kitchener's call for more men.
