Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - September 14, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta yOLL'ME XI. LKTHBniOGE, ALI3EHTA, SATUtDAY. SKPTKMHKH 1 I, RELEASES AMERICANS CONT ADVANCE; NE y TISH GAINS Save Gasoline Tomorrow The fuel administration of Canada has appealed to th? auto owners to make tomorrow a "Joyridelcss" Sunday. Their object is to save gasoline. The appeal is a "requeDt" at present. It may become an "order" later on.  The necessity for saving ga9olinc is imperative. It ir, needed for the airplanes that protect our fighting men. It Is needed for the ambulances that drive our wounded to safety. It is needed for the countless hundreds of purposes for which it has been found vital to win the war. Lethbrldge auto owners can save 1500 gallons of gas tomorrow by keeping their cars in the oarage. There arc 700 car� in the city. There arc 30,000 in the province. If all these were kept at home tomorrow, it would mean the saving of 50.000 oallons of gasoline, or about enough for all the airplanes at the front for one day'tf'flying. Mr. Auto Owner, be in line in the walking brigade tomorrow, with your car back home in the garage. Help Salvation Army Today Canvassers for the Salvation Army hut fund arc covering the city today. This is n most wot thy cause, as everybody knows, and it is to be hoped that a generous sum will be realized for the comforts of the boys at the front. umm LONDON, Sept. 14.-(Canadian Press despatch from Reuters)-Semi-official proof that the Germans had not intended to evacuate the St. Mihicl salient is that they did not employ the usual practice of removing the able-bodied population and destroying the town. The Franco-American attack was so swift that St. Mihiel was found intact and the troops had the happiness of seeing the enthusiastic inhabitants run to wclcom them. The important towns of Verdun, Cominctcy, Toul and Nancy are no longer menaced. It will be surprising if the victory has not further important consequences.

The Germans taken prisoner said they had orders to hold at any co*.
