THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR. Russia is In. a turmoil. Petrograd 1b bumlns �nd people are being mas-eacred on the streets. The news is �l^Kicsnt and indicates that Bqjshe-Tiki rule is on the down grade and may cease forever verj' soon. The people are rebelling and it may not be long until a better Russia will organize and control affairs. Progress still marks the reports from the allies on the western front. The Germans are putting up a stlf-fer opposition but it is not effective s-nd they are forced to yield ground. T)}e Canadians are resting up for a tmr day^. LET THE AUTO HAVE A REST ON SUNDAY. To conserve gasoline, niost important in war -winning, automobile owners are urged to keep their cars In the garage for a few Sundays. It is not a command; It Is a request. Sunday will tell us how interested our uto owners ate in conserving gasoline for better a.nd greater purposes than 'Pleasure driving. -It is conservatively estimated that JloO.OOO can be saved In gasoline next Sunday alone. A few Sundays like tliat and m- lot of gasoline wIU be available lor war effort. Tie United States has had autoless Sundays and we saw a letter frdm a Connecticut city the other day In which the statement was made that not an auto was seen on the street^ the prevlouB Sunday. Will Lethbridge have the same record this coming Sunday? It may seem hard for some people to give up a spin in,their car around the country on Sunday but surely we at least ought to be willing to sacrifice pleasure, when we know it means a contribution to the wlnning^f the ^r. Nothing else but the winning of the war should concern us. In Britftla auto owners know what sacrl-fioo means. A privately owned car never seeu on the streets or roads there now. Sundays and all other days of the week. The only cars that can obtain petrol and be openated in Britain are automobiles engaged in some ' form of war work. Thousands o� ~pri-yate cars have been locked up in Eng-iieh garages for a year or more. Thay oan't be used at all lor they are not sermjtted to buy petrol. Petrol BARONS HAS A �p-e CfiitBg In Britain. Surely our auto owners will give up the use ot ^e car for a few Sundays, when in Britain tliey hare given up for/some time the use of cars altogether. NO SPECIAL PRIVIUEQES FOR MENN0NITE8. ' A people, who disclaim reaponsl-fblljty for the defence of the country that protects them, are not desirable Citizens. Neither are people who attempt to segregate themselves from ether people and send their children to schools, where they do not come In contact with other children and where they attempt to teach another language and retrain from acquiring ^owledge ot the language ot the Bountry In which they are living. We are referring to the Mennon-Jtes. Alberta has great resouroas to develop and it needs people to develop them but its resources can wait for development rather than we rhouid permit to enter the country ind occupy our land people who are not prepared to assume all the obll-(atlons of citizenship and become ss-Bimilated through language and ous-lome as Canadians. There wag a rather dangerous inti-ination In our Raymond correspond-Bnce the other dny, wher? mention was made' of a naovement to segregate these people in a distinct school aistrict. it'these people are "here to itay then they must not i)e segregated. The ,onIy way to make Cana-jians out of; them is to mix them up With other Canadians. A segregated � jchool district would mean a Men-iionlte school district where an at-ptpjj^oudl be made to teach the One of the outstanding impressions | carried.;away from the war zone is: that ot the marvellous orgaiilza-' lion. Few of us ever stop to j consider what it means ^ii, clotJie and feed millions of men, and to supply them .ind the machines of war with munitions,' We know it is done, and take it all for granted. When up at the lines you see the men, you see them, Ijeing fed, and you see His-guns and you see them operating. WTiero uobS the supply come from and how does .ft get to the front? Most of us know it comes >from the base gets to the front by every concelvitble means of transport, mostly motor lorries and  railroad. At the front you see the ammunition dumps, and the supply depots and you know that these have to be replenished regularly and sys-tematifally. You start to move back and yoif meet the lorries coming up with the shellis for the guns and the food for the men. You keep moving and yon still meet the supplies coming along the road-an almost endless procession. Then you get to the base and you reach the spot where the procession begins. You are taken to a bakery, that was a huge factory in peace days. And you are told that hundreds ot thousands ot loaves ot bread are made here every day of every week of every month. Daily this bread is moved up to the lines. And this is only one of many such bakeries. And so it is with meat and other ^ood from the supply depots. The organization is perfect. The food leaves regularly, and it usually arrives at Its destination on time. Anyway the men get their feed every day. This feeding an army is a wonderful job. Thousands of men are engaged on the job oi getting the food 1 from the base to the front. It is not a safety first job either. Running a motor transport means entry into the danger zone every day and the enemy is always willing to put a transport COMMME FOR REIURNEO IN To Aid in Re-esfablishnient\ - Lan3 Hunters Visit Town ^PICKED VPJNj*_ PASSINOmM. (From Our Owt'. Corrpsponilent) Barons. Sept. 10.-.\ uomuilttee tor the re-establishment of returned soldiers has been formed, consisting of Mrs. Cooper. Mrs. Kennedy,. L. C. Bur-nap, H. May and Rev. .T. Malley. This committee met on Monday evening at .Mrs. Cooper's and appointed \\r. Malley ns chairman and Mrs. Kennedy as secretary-treasurer. It was decided to have an honor roll for the district prepared and to enlist the assistance of everyone In the community in giving to all returntng heroes a hearty welcome, and subsequently seeing that they are properly established in civil life. Up to date the town has had no organized body by whom information with reg.ird to soldiers returning home could be obtained and the men who have, so far. returned have arrived unheralded and practii-ally unrecognized. One of the objects of the committee will be to ascertain beforehand of the e.v \ pected arrival of returned men and to  arrange for suitable receptions at the station. l\ would, therefore, be appreciated if people who have knowledge, at .any time, of expected arrivals would convey the information to any member of the committee. Land Hunters. .\n auto load of Californians were here last week land-hunting, having motored all the way from the extreme southern end of the sunset state. They report that the first good crops they saw on their journey were about fifty miles north of the International boundary and that California. Oregon. Montana and other states through which they passed have practically nothing. Mr. Mustard, ,a former resident of this disu-ict, was a guest at Sani Taylor's last week. He returned home on Saturday.. Sir. E. Chadsey. provincial manager of the Policyholders Mutual LlFe .A.ssnrance Co, was in town two days last week and while here secured some good busines."; through the corn-out of business If a shell or a homb,pony's agents.. Popham & May. will do the work. And so it is with 1 Mrs. Sam Taylor presented her hus- ammunition. It comes from over the ocean and across the channel. It at once finds Its place at the base and then day by day It Is moved along to the guns and the men. We rarely think of this organization for feeding men and guns but without that organization we would have no army, and no Tiotorles. It is the chief spoke In the wheel. Without it we would have to throw up our hands. It would take a book to tell all about It. That such a perfect, well operated, clock-like organization exist!, nevertheless is well worth emphasizing. language the Mennonitea prefer and the doctrines they advocate. The Mennonltes must hava an ordinary Alberta public school with a qualified teacher. They must speak English and the school must be open to all classes. These people must not be granted one single special privilege. They mugt conform to our laws, use our language and share with the rest of us in the defence of our country. If they -won't become Canadians, in practice and principle, let them go te too raluable to be wasted on pleas-fto Mexico, where they can try linng in peape with the revolutionaries. Let the auto take a rest on Sunday. Use your legs Instead of the car on ..Sunday. The Huns may sub the ships but they don't get the soldiers. Poor Russia! It, after the through? "What will be left of Bolshevik! rule is Any organization that helps the soldier in France Is worthy of our help over here. . Baron Shaughnessy was warmly welcomed at Fort William. If he is looking for a warmer welcome he should take a run over the Cardston line. V Baron Shaughnessy says there should be no trouble between capital and labor, and there wouldn't he if capital, like the C.P.R.. was always as anxious to avoid trouble. band with a nice, big new baby girl on Thursday morning.

' ' ' On a recent date the Ladies' Aid of the Barons church was re-orgapized. War work has taken first place in the community for some time, but when the parsonage fras purchased it- was felt that there was a genuine need for the Ladies' Aid Organization.

Under the leadership of the new minister the church is fast getting into its stride as an institution that has community welfare at heart. The free library, which is kept in the office to the rear of the church is becoming so popular that the librarian lias had to send an application {or an additional fifty books. For the; benefit of those who ha\;e not yet got in touch with the library it may be said that books may be had on Saturday night from 7..30 to 10 o'clock, and on Sunday night after the service.
