The the people, explanation is diie work of League is: To Continue Spirit in the People and in the Government. To enlighten people upon tho..importance o{ the sea; so that Canadian products" may be shipped, through Canadian ports, in 'Canadian ships, officered and manned by trained Canadians. To Continue the Sea-Conscious Spirit in iks. Schools. As a Merchant Navy is the first step to sea power in any nation, so is the seed-sowing of fund- amental national ideals in the schools, the first step to national greatness. To Continue Training Canadian for the Sea. The .continuous training of over two thousand Can- adian lads, in the Boys' Naval; Brigades of the Navy, of Canada, is to-day having an effect upon our maritime future. J: Since May last, sixty of these lads h'aye completed their trailing and passed into the Canadian Mer- chant Navy. Fifty more have'gone to England to in'an.the new ships of the re-organized Royal Can- adian Navy. Under the guidance of Experienced Sea Minds, it 'is.being planned to give chosen lads.from the Boys' 'Naval Brigades an ocean-going education second to thnt Canada will have efficient master none, so -teamen. To Continue to Relieve Distress of Canadian Merchant Sailors. After this year the League expects to cease asking for funds for the relief of the Canadian dependents of Merchant Sailors who were killed'on'Act We Ser- vice. With the trust funds now. in hand, together with the sum set aside in the Budget, to be raised by public subscription, it should be possible to establish an endowment, the income from which will be suffi- cient to provide these dependents .with-'a pension equal to that granted to the dependents of Naval men killed on Active Service, As many of .dependents, are.young.children, the endowment must continue a number ol years, until the chiidren become self-supporting. To Continue Upholding Every Sdilors' Home, Institute and Welfare Society in Canada? The Navy League seeks to make life comfortable for our sailors when ashore. After "all, Canada is their arid the home, while they are here, of the sailors pf other lands. The Navy League, maintains or assists in maintaining ejvery Sailors' Home, Institute and Welfare Society in Canada. And every dollar sub- scribed for the maintenance of these Homes and. Institutes will be money well invested and redound to our national prosperity. These can only be achieved through an organization representative of public Tespontibility and outtide party politics, The obligation is apparent, simple, easy! Borne in proportion, horn coast to coast, the weight is felt, but not the strain. The public expect this to continue and to be by public subscription until it yields the true glory."
