(Respectfully dedicated to the mothers who wear the bronze medal of the Associated Kin). We didn't raise our boy to be a soldier, We loved him as all parents lovo their son. His footsteps never marched to martial music, He -was never taught the workings of a gun. We told him ot the dying love of . Jesus, Explained to him God's great Balva-tion plan, Wo taught him love of country, right and freedom, And we tried to raise our boy to be a man. When war'B red lust swept over ruined Belgium, j He came to us and said, "I've got to go,- If God is oh.the side of night and freedom, � 1 , It's up to^me.to fight that fiendish foV." | . 1 And when they' told iis he was "Killed in Action," Hot tears' of pride and sorrow freely ran, For we didn't raise our boy lo be a soldier," , But, thank God, we raised our boy to be a MAN. � * ? > * > : > ? : > PERSONAL � *j. �� �j# �^ �S� 4* ������ � * � * The Girls' Auxiliary would remind the ladles of Lethbridge. that contributions of preserved fruit left this week at the Herald Office or with Miss Mackenzie, 313 13th St. South, would bo much appreciated.

GIRL PAGES IN HOTELS > In a leading Detroit hotel on Friday night a sprightly .girl with light brown hair, coffee-brown, one-piece dress cut on the bias, hooked up the back, flounced and fluffy-ruffled, opened rosebud mouth and sang in fine soprano voice, "Call for Mr. White, Ploase.." Repeats the first verse twice, and then sings the chorus: "Call for Mr. White, Please.." Audience, consisting largely of men occupying all the comfortable orchestra chairs, sat up and took notice. Sprightly young girl with tasselled flub-dubs flying gorgeously takes long walk through the. hotel. Kach man wished he were Mr. White, while Mr. White was apparently in the dark regarding his sup*Hor advantage. Thus the girl page made her premiere in Detroit. There are three on the cast. Reasons: Small boys gone into essential industry. Result: Organization of girl pages formed to demand that the new uniforms they are to wear be buttoned up the. hack. Fifty cents for a hair cut and 25 cents for a shave were the prices fixed by the master barbers in London, 6nt. � : . .;.
