Bulgaria definitely declared herself aligned with Germany yesterday, and marked the announcement with an air raid into Serbia.

The action of the teachers is aa inspiration., _and we hope it will have the effect of arous- ing others to do "their bit" The teachers' contributions should go to meet the allotment in the con- stituencies where they reside. OUR REASONS FOR BEING THANKFUL A year ago we observed Ing with the Empire in a state of war and this section of Alberta suffering from a crop failure. At that time, the war situation was not as world wide in its effects as it is today, and pro- bably most of us held the view that it a close within a year. A" year has wrought many changes. Other countries have become involved in -the conflict. The great prepara- tion made by Germany has been more fully realized.; Her methods of war- fare have given us an accurate idea of her characteristics as a nation. In twelve months she has shown to tne world; that she has no regard for pledged rules of in- ternational warfare, or the rights of nqncoinbatant humanity. In the civ- ilized world today all thoughtful men look upon the GennaR nation as a menace to the great principles of Democracy and Christianity. the war has not proceeded as rapidly as we would like to a victor- ious conclusion ior the Afties, we are thankful, as we approach our nation- al observance of Tranksgiving, that we are not of the German nation. We are grateful that we belong to the Bri- tish over which Hies the flag of justice, liberty and freedom. Throughout this war Britain has stood for the great principles upon which the Empire was founded. Men. by the .thousands have sacrificed their lives that in the end we might be thankful for their sen fee in maintain Ing the inheritances of a Democratic people. We indeed have much to be thankful for. The Empire and its. Al- lies have fought a good fight. They liaye done nothing to upon us.

"Sometimes we hear the assertion that the government of Canada should do the work now ibefcig carried on by the Canadian Patriotic Fund. Usually, those who advance'thls idea are not afoie to suggest bow this might be done, nor do they appear to have foreseen the results. The Canadian government cannot discriminate "between families. The Government Separation Allow- ance is given without favor, alike to the wife of the and to that of the1" poor the same sum to each. The wife in the former case has no claim because of need, while in the latter the separation allowance alone is not sufficient to support the family, even on the most economical scale! Hence, the Patriotic. Fund, acting with discrimination, considering the special circumstances of each case, brings up each family's income to a reasonable level of subsistence, thus ''building1 on the foundation which the government has laid: If the government supported all the families, the majority of Canadian "stay-at-homes" 'would be deprived of the privilege of taking any part in the war.
