Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1918 PAGE THREE THAT SON-IN-LAW OF PA'S By Wellington fOOLIBHHETO.IWfr SIMP SOH YDU^INK.OLP ,..... UP r > ? BRITAIN'S BIT . ? ? ? ? ? > ? ? ? \ -: ? (From the New York Outlook). I� we are to do our part in thla war effectively, we must un derstand the peoples with whom we are associated. There are five groat peoples with whom we must co-oper ate, and with whom, therefore, we must learn to know as friends. The French are our closest associates on the field of battle, and circumstances have brought them Into intimate relations with us which are making acquaintance easy. The Russians have been misled and victimized, not only by the Germans, but by man of their own country; they arp nevertheless natural friends of, America and want to go our way. The Japanese are about to be more closely associated with us than they have been in tho past, and the way to friendship with them has been made easy for us by traditions beginning with Perry. The Italians are bound to us by ties formed by thousands upon thousands of Italian immigrants, and we ought not to find it hard to learn to understand their point of view. But the British', to whom we are related not so much by blood as by speech and by social and political institutions, ought to be, It would seem, more Intimately understood � by us than any ot these other peoples. Some ot the peoples ot the British Empire, we perhaps do understand better than any one else-the Canadians, the AuEtralians, and the I^ew Zealanders. Like us, these people of the dominions are ohlldron of the tron-tlersmen and the pioneer*; like us, th63r-haye..;conquered and developed a new., country" and carried tho ancestral.torch pf-liberty to light the Western'World. Yet the people of tho British 7aiies, anil particularly of England, iwe do. not understand as we ought, n It-Is our bufiiness, our duty, In this warto understand them. What to more, it is bur business to make It easy for them to understand ub. This to the mora important because with �o people, not even the French, are we going to be called upon to co-operate more closely than we are with the British, In order to understand the British we must understand somo of (he rea-. eons why wo have not fully understood them. One of these reasons is to be found ill our history. Wo think of George III., against whom we revolted, as an ^English King, whereas In fact he ~"was a German. Wo think of our Revolution as a struggle with the English people, whereas it was a struggle of the English people against an. un-IflngllBh Government. We remember Cornwallis, and forget, as a reader of .Tbn Outlook reminds ub, that Lord Howe, Commander-in-Chief ot tho Biit-ish armies during our Revolution, made it cleax that he had no heart for the distasteful task of subjugating his countrymen, and tiat the Duke of Wellington flatly refused to command an army against America In 1814, stating his belief that it would be impossible to induce Englishmen to inflict a military defeat upon the United States of America. One reason, tlierc-fore, why we have misunderstood tho English is that wo have misread our own history. Another reason la to be found in the skilful, determined, sentimental, and conscienceless propaganda of the Germans. We are beginning now to see how deliberate and well planned this propaganda has been; how it has extended from our school text-books up to the Germanic Museum at Harvard, how it has been disguised under the form ot academic exchanges and educational hospitality. More than one plain American citizen has been made pro-German and anti-British by receiving some gracious favor at the hands of the Kaiser, who bestows hia favor with an understanding of what its effect will be. And what has happened to individuals as the result of the Kaiser's personal favor has happened to Americans generally as a result ot this very German policy ot propaganda.^ Americans who are anti-British are to a great degree the dupes of the Germans. Still another reason, perhaps the strongest reason ot all, why W8 have not understood the British as well as some other peoples is that the British themselves have not been given to exploiting their own virtues. This reason for not understanding the British is, paradoxical as it may sound, a reason for admiring them. We shall understand them better when we understand their fine reticence. This quality of theirs is embedded in their vernacular. A war phrase which we have borrowed from them Is tho phrase, "To do one's bit." 'To many Ameri-1 cans this phrase has almost seemed to set up the slacker aa a standard. As Mr. Cromie, in his article in last week's Outlook, says, with somewhat of reproach, "Not your bit, but your best." � That Is good counsel for Americans; but to an" Englishman It Is quite meaningless, for he understands that his bit is his best. To put it otherwise, an Englishman may be slaving himself to death--he may bo fighting steadily for two or three days without sleep, he may be working uncomplainingly fifteen or twenty hours a day in a recruiting office rather lhan at the front because he has been gassed and has only one-half ot a lung left-andv he'll call it doing his bit. We Americans, following the Scriptural injunction, put our light on a candlestick. We should understand the British better if we realized that they often keep their light under a bushel. There are no aervice flags displayed In English shops or English homes; but it is doubtful whether there is any pride surpassing British pride in the service rendered by Britain's sons. British statesmen and British publicists are not practiced in the art of letting the world know what their country is doing. The other day Lloyd George told his own ccjntry, tlirough Parliament, something of what his and their Government had done in the war. We arei reporting something ot what he said on another page. We believe it Is worth while for Americans to read of what Lloyd George said on that occasion. In reading that speech', or even our summary of it, Americans would do well to remember that he was addressing, not them, but the British. It would bo well for them to remember that during hundreds ot years Great Britain has been living a life close to, but separate from, the rest of Europe. For these centuries England has had to endure no such tyranny, not even under the Stuarts, as France suttored under the Bourbops and Germany has suffered under the Hohenzollerns, England has prized her isolation bo- OIERSOFMRIA EXEMPT FROM TAXES Dependents' Homes Also Come Under Scope of New Provincial Law ued, the speaker saicl, in order not to I endanger the milk ;ind fat Kupply. Un-j fortunately he wast unable to hold out any prospect of an improvemonl in the food supply but lie was positive that it would not get worse. Horr Lenien, a member of the Reichstag, who was one oC the deputation replying, said tliar. in view of the hopeless inl'ormalioii ho gave regarding the food supply the workers could not continue to work the number ot hours they are now working. Edmonton, Sept. 16. - Conspicuous among exempt taxpayers this year are soldiers and soldiers' dependents. Under tho two provincial acts which regulate the taxation of soldiers' property, the home property or that in which the soldier was living at the time of his enlistment, is exempt for all purposes of taxation, beginning with 1918 and continuing until two years after the declaration ot peace or the soldiers' discharge from the army, whichever happens first. For all practical purposes the home, if owned by the soldier's wife, comes uuder the same ruling. On all other property of soldiers, the legislation provides that lio taxe.'s can be collected, although the property is taxable, until two years after the soldier's discharge, or the end .of the war. Arrears of taxes on the home before 1918 or which have or may ao cumulatii on other property owned cannot be touched by any legal proceedings, either, until the conclusion of the two years. It'is understood in these acts that a soldier Is a person either on active service or subject to call for service within the Eraplr^ emy two-seaters were burned to tlm ground in tiio eoursci of a suceessful attack carried oul by our airmen from a very low height upon an. airdrome south of Lille. Four German balloons were shot down in rianies. Two of our machines are niis.sing. A good deal of photographs and arlillery ob-.^ervatlon work was accomplished together with a number of contact patrols. "The weight of tlie bomb.s dropped by us during tho twenty-four hours amounted to nearly eight ton.'i.'' A total of 13000 liad heeu raised for the Salvation Army Hut Fund by Saturday evening, by tho canvassers who were .working the city. The amount is expected to reach $3500 when all the sub.scriptions which have been promised lire received. The campaign was very satisfactory. Special speaker.s visited the Chinese National league last evening on behalf ot the fund, W. A. Buchanan, M.P., and .1. B. Wilkie, making 'special appeals, which are being met with generous response- from the league. NO HOPE FOR HONS IN FOOD SUPPLY President of Food R^ulation Board Makes Germans Understand tlie Situation ENEMY LOSING INY AIRCRAFT London, Sept. 16.-Describing the aerial operations in the battle zone, an official statement last night says: "On.

In addition two en- Amsterdam, Sept. IG.-^Kerr Von Wal-dow, president of German Pood Regulation Board, speaking at a reception to the leadera ot tlio German Trades Unions, said he regretted the lateness of the harvest and that there were no sharper means than were at present used to get more foodstuffs. The corn crop, ho said, was only 1.5 per cent better than that of last year, and the potato crop was probably worse. The provisioning ot Industries, [ he added, would Improve from October \ 1. A full bread ration certainly would 1 be restored but he declared he could not hold out any prospect for an increase in the potato ration as unfavorable weather had prejudiced the crops. The meatless weeks must be contin- cause she 'knows that it enabled her hundreds of years ago to - begin and carry out generation after generaton that struggle tor liberty which has made Englishmen freemen, and that without that isolation France came to her liberty late, and Germany does not even yet know what it means for men to be free. No wonder English men are loth to let that Isloatlon go. No wonder that Lloyd George, in speaking of unity of command, finis it necessary to explain to his fellow-countrymen that there is no cause for them to tear the loss of what they prize so htgh'v. And It is well, in reading whai' Lloyd George has to say for Americans to remember that this war in which England is engaged is no new war, but the continuation and culmlatlon ot that great struggle for liberty which is England's history.
