Her understanding from both Canadian and American papers is that there seems to be an influx of Mennonites from the United States, and there is a general impression from these sources that these people are seeking to avoid military service. Mrs. McKinney contends that on the face of it this sort of thing is hardly reasonable. But the question seems to be, said Mrs. McKinney,'that*-there is entering into our country at the present time a class of immigrants wl\p seems to be assured of special privileges-that, is the general impression.- It is said, with more or less truth, that the Mennonites are of German extraction, that they persist in settling in groups and iu using their own language in their religiouB services and private schools. She pointed out that as an organization the VV. C. T. U. could not pass a resolution agaiust any religious group of people, no matter what it might be. but that a resolution might be pasBed protesting against the encouragement-of any class of immigrants requiring special privileges. The Mennonite Life Mrs. O. C. Edwards pointed out that some groups already settled iu Canada had been assured of special privileges, but those coming into Canada now were not being granted any. In Southern Alberta, .Mrs. Edwards said, the Mennonites carried on a community life of a time which has gone toy. They build Jarge houses inhabited by a number of families, each family livingi in one room, which was a very bad state of affairs, and In her belief they were undeslrablo citizens and should not be encouraged. When the resolution was finally brought in it passed unanimously upon a standing vote. Mrs. Hamilton, delegate from Lethbridge, invited the convention to her city for next year, and this was 1ft to the executive committee. Mrs. J. Goldie was the other Lethbridge delegate. A number of resolutions were passed at the convention, and a plan of work lor the year recommended by the work committee. The following officers have been appointed: President, Mrs. L. A. McKinney, Claresliolm; first vice-president, Mrs. Gainer, South Edmonton; corresponding secretary, Mrs. Paske, Ypuugstown; treasurer. Mrs. Craig," Olds: "Y" secretary, Mrs. Burbeck, Edmonton; L. T.

The delegates were treated to a ride rpgrii the v district, and Mrs. Woodhall on belvalf of the Calgary unions. These- were responded to by Mrs. Hamilton, Lethbridge.
