Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 13, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta �^Age four the lethbridge daily herald FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER j 3, 1918 Xctl3bri^ae, Hlbeita DAILY AND WEEKLY , . Froprletor* and Publish*T LETHBRIDGE HERALD PRINT-INQ COMPANY,- LIMITEP It* %th Straet South," Lliertalnment tor the troops recuperating from the exhaustion caused by .ie fighting of the last few months." i'VIt is intended tha:t through this qampaigc, five hundred thousand dol-jlars will be raised in Canada and i'Alberta has been allotted $25,000 of \iiiiB amount. There should .be no dif-(iiculty in obtaining Alberta's allot-(JiBent, , Our people, though there � .iliave been rftany calls upon them since lihe war began, know little of real sac-^'fiOce aB compared with tbe coun- � Lliles nearer to the war zone. We ,^ould "be only too willing to aid every |.TH5ar movement, if we are seriously In-!4�rosted in the welfare of the soldier. Javlng in a trench dug-q.ut for days at aitinie tlje soldier wjtien he comes out W the line should have a^'comfortable l^&ce to riep'air to for rest and rocrea-')^on. These huts serve that purpose, purely if we thiuk well enough of the ^^Idler we should-gladJj^ cpntribute to '^^l^ause that aims to brighten his life. (I^e Salvation Army, the ,Y:M.C.A. j^-a -the' 'Knlgfitfe- of; eolumbusi '^re all; We are asked save gasoline by giving up the use of automobiles on Sun-dny. It is merely a request to put pleasure in the background .so that we may help to cortsorvo a vciy necessary article for war winning. Yet some people will grumble-and maybe some auto owners will not heed tlie call. Our trouble in Cim-nda is that we do not know anytliuig about the burdens ot war. Aui too many think we should not have to boar any burdens. It is a very poor type of citizen wh^ assumes that attitude. Do they ever think of the burdens the b&ys, who have left their Canadian homes are bearing? Any man or woman with a soul, should be eager to make sacrifices at home in order to try and measure up a little bit to the sacrifices of Uie boys over iu France. V>'e are really living in luxury in Canada. There are food regulations it is true, but they are very modest compared with the food regulations in Britain and France. Sugar in those countries is as scarce as rain was in Southern Alberta this past season. Cream you never t'ee at all on a hotel or restaurant table. Beef rarely finds a place on a hotel menu, and then you ^ust have a ration card in order to obtain it. And it is the same with all other meats, if you haven't your ration card you can't have meat and if you use up your card before the expiry ot the allotted time you must go without this article of food. The ration card is not applicable to public eating houses alone, it applies to the private homes, too. At your meals all the bread that is available is a roll, about the size ot your fist. It has a hard crust, which enables you to spend a lot of time usually marked W.D., war department, M..M., uunistr.v of munitions, or .M.I., ministry of information, ore about the only cars to bo sosn. Occaaioa-nlly a Red Cross worker Is allowea patrol tor a certain period, but it it is exhausted before the time expires, no more can be obtained. CanadiaA autoists are not being asked to sacrifice anything, comparod with the owners ot private cars in Britain and France. Any man or woman who would refuse to rest the car and not use gasoline one day In tho woek.i is a mighty poor patriot-in fact is not a patriot at all. We have talked of sacrifice over here since the war started but to learn tho real meaning ot sacrifice you must visit Britain and France. It means something real over there.

Sept. 12.-A very de lightfut miscellaneous shower was j was killed in action, given by Mrs. Geo. Ridgedale and Mrs. A. Hobson on Saturday afternoon for the infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Fuller. The afternoon was most pleasantly spent and many lovely gifts were bestowed upon the guest of honor.

Fuller were guests in Medicine Hat last week. Miss Arvada Cook and Miss Myrtle Small have left for Medicine Hat to attend the high school. The Ladies' Aid of the United to :coyer that generous supply of)church was delightfully entertained bread. Banquets!" Probably you have the idea tliat banquets are gorgeous with their ta,bles of delicacies. ..Tlie. most ^generous item at a banquet is talk, j'and even that is curtailed because a .'war time banquet must close, at ten o'clock. The banquet menu consists ^of three or four courses, usually fancy dishes that taste well, but whose food value is graded down near zero. We have the man too, who growls about prohibition. In Britain and France they haven't prohibition :but the supply of intoxicants is very limited. . Whiskey is so diluted that the drinker of pre-war days turns up his nose at the staff and declares it is no better than a glassful of water with a spoonful of whiskey dropped Into it. The supply of the diluted stuff is confined to- a couple of bottles to all bars each day. In Scotland, the home of whiskey, the same provision appl|es. 'Whiskey is harder to obtain in Scotland today than in Canada. The bars are open only five hours in the day. They open first at twelve o'clock noon and close at two-thirty and re^open again at 6.30 and close at nine o'clock, and the whiskey supply is usually exhausted at the noon opening and there is nothing but light wines and beer for the evening-and maybe a cocktalL Cigars are (expensive. The poorest brand sella at about 6d-and ,it is poor. One of our 15c cigars would cost about 50c In Britain. Tobacco is proportionately Just as high. And matches! They are almost as hard to obtain as the proverbial needle in the haystack. They are not banded ont to you with a purchase of tobacco or cigars. Youi have to buy them and then yon can't always get them. Certainly Britain is not a smoker's paradiae. London, Paris and all England and France are dark atilight, or practically so. In London there are a few lights on the streets, but they are heayily shaded. All blinds must be drawn tightly on all windows and about the only lights one sees are the soarch-llghts prowling through the heavens searching for enemy aircraft. No restaurants are open at night. The old niight clubs are gone. Dancing ' in public places is almost unknown. And now about automobiles. Private cars are on the shelf, so. to speak, until after the war. You can drive for miles in Britain and never see an automobile-. .Government cars. doing a noble wbiT^ in the training camps and at the. front and thf^se, of us hack home living In safety and comfort, should count it a joy to put our handp in our pocket.s and contri; bute to the upkeep of the huts across the.sea. .Nextnveek you. c:an' help the Knights of Columbus and it .ia your duty and it should be your pJea.auEevana- jJEii'ilege -to helii.. i at the home ot Mrs. Herman Schoneit this afternoon. �A bazaar and dance will be held under the auspices of the Grandlea Red Cross Society in the Lancaster School on the evening of Sept. 20th.

That a distraint for arrears of taxes by the city of Calgary, made upon the goods of an insolvent subsequent of an assignment made by him for the benefit of his creditors is valid only in so far as the business taxes are conc^emed, is the gist of a .decision given by Chief Justice Harvey in the supreme court.
