Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1920, Lethbridge, Alberta FOURTEEN THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD FRIDAY, OCTOBER Impressions of Mackenzie King Meeting Following ihe Mackenzie King meeting on Tuesday evening The Herald asked former Conservative, a Laurier Liberal and a United Farmer each to.write his impressions of the meeting and the new Liberal leader. Here they are: fine aiplratloo to lhat end. Ho has proren solidity as an academic student of, affairs, his ability platfora 'exponent of his theories.

William LyoiijMic- keuile King Tuesday evening, ai-an effort in speech maiicx: aaade a strong-, appeal. The preliminary speeches of his colleagues, somewhat stiff and atcrotyped, formed a good background for Mr. King's style, which was rather graceful and brilliant. The ideals aad theories declared on economic and social questions were those of an earnest student and keen observer. Whether or' not Mr. King convinced everyone' of fclfl ability to -'apply all hie principles in the sphere ot practical affairs might, of be an open question; The of the Premier on policy, Mr. King By a Farmer It was' fifteen years 1 bad seen Macienile my im- preuloa was that ho was a young man, Confident of the correctness of Ms concltuioos, bat a bit unpractical in applying these, not on uuujusi of a' young man so careluHy eoltefa trained ho had Ul a confident that he hat Now. h man who treated as idle platitudes.

There weren't many of ns Liberals In Lcthbrldge on Monday. We cou'.d hardly muster a quorum to form a committee oa arrangements. Wo weren't nearly so lonesome on Tuesday evening about 11 o'clock. A lot ol Liberals had been made In the meantime. Or at least, thero were a lot, who had always been Liberal at heart but who had wandered away from the foW. who decided taut it was time for the prodigals, to return. I believe we could muster a pretty fair aggregation !n tho city today with- out going out Into the highways and byways to drum them up. Of course, Mackenzie King did It. He has a way of doing Ihlngs, one of Y'hica will be the tflnnins of the neit election. I wasn't so sure about It be- fore Tuesday, for I .had never Eeen or heard our new chief.

I saw a lot of farmers In the audience taking his advice to heart. Mackenzie King is NEW AND OLD MEMBERS IN N. B.

During, the last prohibition earn- patgn the advocates of prohibition own way, they gave, tho people their instructions, and the IhM! for doing to, i followed out their Instructions to the letter, and as a result of fol- lowing out the iBstructl.ons given, we got prohibition, and sllll have it. The prohibitionists tell U3 that It. is a good thing, and Insist that we shall buy some more of It. The only people whom it wlll'be easy to convince that and. more of it, Is a good thing, are the bootleggers, and accord- lug to they are already con- vinced of that fact, and will- vote solidly "yes."

DRINK WATER WITH MEALS Secretion i of Grastle'Juice is Stimu- lated, [Us Said (From the Contrary to a long standing theory, water taken'with meals Is now recom- mended. --Fpr'.'years it has been taught such a procedure .weakens the secra- tinns of grastic that diges- tion would be delayed or inhibited. But now It has been proved that drink- ing meals stimulates the secretion: of graBtic'juice, that it pro1 duces liver function and that it enables the food to be utilized more economically; further, the saliva acts more efficiently when 'dilat- ed with water.: Thus we are encourag- ed to drink plenty of pure water while eating. j Few Men Can Judge Quality In Cloths Materials for men's clothes heed dissecting to be accurately Mfrs test all clotKs before purchasing from makers, and _ quality which" purchasers of FasKion-Gaft can rely on is the result.
