MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1918 THE LETHBRIDOE DAILT �I3?.>�1D ^ �---- TO STEM ALLIES Great Number of Dead Found on Field After Saturday's Battle With the French Army In France. Sept. 15.-The sacrifices llio Germans are making to stay the slow and steady advance of Gen. Mahgin's force toward the Chemin des Dames are made evident by the large number of the enemy dead found on the field ot Saturday's and Sunday's operations. The number of prisoners which increased during the day to more than 3500 also is very large for the length of front attacked. The dead are thickest around Laftauz mill and east, of Vauxaillon where the enemy counterattacked violently today in a vain effort to regain the positions lost Saturday. General Mangin's troops not only maintained all their gains but push- ing on from VaUxaiilon captured the plntoau to the southeast which gives them' a vantage ground of great Importance. Extending the field of battle to the soyth, the French also made apprecloblo gains by taking Mennigen farm and ground considerably to the east of that position. Farther south they took by storm Hill 169 north of Cellos-Aisnc.

Other pic tures are on the bill also. The supporting compatiy surrounding the distingnfahed William Fo� star in this magnificent feature is ot unusual brilliance, and the dlrectioa by Richard Stanton is noteworthy. William Farnum, of course, is the favorite of anyone with any knowledge of "Who's Who on Stage and Screen." Mr. Farnum is without a peer in his field and has long been e3� tablished as America's most popular dramatic actor. "Rough and Ready" fits him like the proverbial glove. Mr. Famum's leading lady la petite Violet Palmer, whom picture cnthu8i� asts will remember as the co-star lu "The Blue Streak." Others in the cast who have important roles are Alphonze Either, Jessie Arnold, David Klggias, Frank Newton, Mabel Bardine and Franklin McGiynn. \ There's Pure Nutrition and Body-Building Nourishment in Crystal Dairy Milk Pure milk is absolutely necessary to the up-building of children's health.

Without organization men and women are apt to sink below the level ol mulet. Even mules, in times of danger or panic, have been known to co-operate. They sometimes kick together. If it were given to mules to think, they would wonder at the ways of men. That men and women, living and working in the same community, should refuse to co-operate, is one of the riddles of civilization. The only benefits worth having are the benefits we can share with our neighbors. Individual benefits count for little. It is the Co-oiserative effort that brings everlasting goodl Good r(ttds, factories, better schools, good markets can only be secured when all pull together. Every man; woman and child in this community should give one hour each day to community work^ But, don't waif for sonieone else to start it. TTiere is work for you to do. Bo-gin with yourself.
