Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 12, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta QCTODTSR .13, 1015. THE DAILY !1 E R A L h PAGE VIVE Another Household Convenience The licst ten heav- ier toll of human lifn Uian any pre- vious period.

People's Forum LABOR MEN, To the editor of The Herald: expects that every man this day will do Ms These were the words which rang forth from ihu lisis of one of England's greatest admirn'is, at a time when he had fall- en while he was fighting for freedom and justice. This same exhortation stands just as-good today as It did the day it was uttered. Having Ueard that men were need- ed in the telehone section of the Army Sun-Ice Corps, I applied to the officer commanding1 to ascertain-, the true i'acts. at the same time offering my- cervices if such was the caso. 1 received a. reply fn the affirmative, with an offer to place me on the staff immediately. After giving all matters serious consideration, thinking what ft wouid mean to me: the sacrifice of the asso- ciation of my wife and children, a good home, a; regular job, and the many numerous friends J have made, since my arrival in the city a couple of years ago, 1 felt that the call to duty-was a call to which I should lend a listening oar. Before leaving England, I was em loved as a telephone operator doing night duty at the Bradford exchange, which bad abo.ui 6000 subscribers. 1 Therefore, having had the ,f raining- and experience in work, I forth, and "at a time when the o'id Homeland is in.need of, men, to do my little hit, in order that I may 'be able- to look those guys" who take a de- light in sitting" .cm the fence (and crit- icising) straight in the face, and .feel that I had. answered the call of the lute Lord Nelson. It Is all right to at- tend meetings at -which some famous wrator is billed to speak, or aing "Rule, Britannia" uuti'] your eyes strike fire. But whit does our Empire need? It iieeds workers, not shirkers, and the now ripe for who lias any love for, the land of his adop- tion 'and the Motherland, to come for- and show has at least one little spark of manliness left' in .him, As aii old trade unionist of twenty years' standing! 'and carrying creden- tials, from .-my old colleagues of the Bradford branch of the Gas Workers and General Laborers' Union, 1 feel. that anything 1 may say or do in or- der to try and prevail upon the trade unionists of Lethbridge and district to join Mia Majesty's forces wll'i ho re- ceived with duo consideration. Onu great -point which, to my mind, is worth consideration, is the fact that in thib war we find the one-timo aris- tocrat fighting shoulder to shoulder j with the one-time bottom-dog, all hav- j ing a feeling that the only difference j between them in the yast was that they had misunderstood each other. Now they are comrade's TIL "arms, and many arc the" stories told of the true love.and devotion, which lias been ex- hibited by these two classes of indi- viduals towards each other. Men have met me since I came out of hospital last Tuesday, after having undergone an operation in order that I may be fitted for service, and with a look of bewilderment ..exclaimed, "Whatever haa made you Tho only answer 1 can'Rive Is "It is my duty to do so." Duty before pleasure. Go it is with thousands of the brave men who have gone to the ranks. I expect to 'be in Calgary on Wed- nesday, the 13th, to report for duty, and I hope that the number of working the city of Lethbridgo whom it has been.a. pleasure, for me to think- over the situation we.are placed at this not'forgetting the cam- aign which is going on in the trade union movement, in England, where Ben Ti'ileU, .1.
