Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 5, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1918 i::n m E, SAYS PRES. WAITERS Winnipeg,-Sept. 5.-J. C. Watters, l>rositioiit o� the Trades and Labor Council of Canafla, delivered an address at the Lfibor/Temple last night on some pnblic' questions from the viewpoint of organized labor, Mr. Watters said labor had always co-operated and was still wKllng to co-operate In any way that will give Jabor proper representation in the govornment' of the -country. The quarrel of labor with the governmsnt, he 8a(d, is because labor recoKnlzes that private enterprise shouid bo ellm- fnhted dUrUi3 the war',' believing thai" every action of the government should be In the interests of the whola people and not of any particular section. The Bovernment had, however, in action as well as words, refused to abolish private profiteering. "There is only one menace to civilization-Germany, the only autocratic power left in the world-and that influence TBUst be removed," declared Mr. Watters. "We cannot allow Germany to win this war. Had the right policy been adopted at the outset, the war would have been over ere now, but there are things behind the surface that wo cannot see."

MASON & RISCH LIMITED BALMbRAL BLOCK . FIFTHST. S. - LETHBRIDGE NIGHT F[YING IS DIFFICULT WORK / Before Starring on Journey Airmen Prepare Maps With Great Care. A British Airdrome in' .France- (Correspbndence of the Associfttci Press.)~Before leaving on 'a longdistance night raid the airtrieh first prepare their maps with great care;' marking on them the .detailed iouvse from the airdrome to tlielf objective. By means of a small ballooii,' whose speed, direction and height arft recorded by an instrument on the ground the force and direction of the wind at dllTerent altitudes is discovered, and the compass course, allowing for .winil drift, is marked beside the coui'se'. on-the map. The compass coarse for the return journey is also marked-. .Tlu2; speed of the machine is calculated, and on the line of the course a series .of points are marked, showing'wiieVe the" machine should be every 10 minutes, thus enabljng the airman to chefck his progress and to know his approximate position if he gets lost:   � ^ Climbs Above Airdrome. The airman climbs in circles above his airdrome until he has gained sufficient height to safely start on his journey, and then turns his machine eastward, until his illuminated com pass shows that he is fllying on the right course. Then he RieS Striiignt, taking care to avoid swerving to right or left. _ . - � At the same time'he watches tbe country below for landmarks. - A,s he crosses the lines he looks for some distinctive feature, such as the bend of a ca.ial, the dark mass of abatter-ed town or the thin black thread of'' t^ilway. If iie finds it he knoiys h.e in on the right course. Then he sees that a river ahould appear in a few minutes. His watch shows that he has heen flying 40 mln utes, and near the 45-minute mark on his map is twisted a pale blue line He, looks ahead and sees in the moonlight a silver streak and he knows lie is making good time. When he is over the river he compares his outline with his map, and sees that he is crossing it at the right place. Pe isforgiti steadily ahead to his destination. He sees the river and canals most clearly oJ all the landmarks in ;hu nlgh^-tim'e Water is unmistakable. The next most distinct objects are woods and forests which appear like black patches, and their shape is usually very distinct He sees the roads like thui white rib bons save where they are thickly bor dered by trees. Railways Not Distinct. Railways are not so distinct and he can not see them far off, for they are like microscopic black lines. �[. Until he is directly over them he can not see the towns and villages^-but he caii see the rivers many mile? off, and 'finds them the most j;eliable guide of all. So, checking his compass with'this landmarks and with the ever-reliable north star, he arrives at his destinatien' after travelling many miles across un familiar country. He drops his bombs and finds ,the return, with lightened cargo, very much easier. There- is kind of "homing instinct," so the air men say, which takes them back quickly and directly with little dlfficuUy.
