Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 21, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1918 THE LETHBRIDGE .DAILY HERALD PAGE NINE 32 Canadian Soldiers Have Won the Victoria Cross Fifteen of Them Were Born in Canada-Sixteen Still Living (Canadian Dally Record) An analysis of Canada's thirty-two V.C.'s of the present war shows that fifteen of the recipients' wore Canadian born, and that 14 of these gallant bob mm, UNION MADE OVERALLS SHIRTS & GLOVES soldiors paid the supremo sacrifice. The British Isles gave birth to another fifteen of the Dominion's V.C.'s, while Of the other two one was born In Russia and the other in the United States. Six of those from Great Britain wero nativeB of Scotland, five of England, and four of Ireland. Of the 17 other ranks and 15 officers ^comprising the total, twenty-six served in the infantry, three in the cavalry, two in the H.F.C. (now the Royal Air Force), and the remaining one was won by an officer in the 0 A.M.C, attached to the infantry. Ontario claims the largest number of Canadian-born V.C.'s, Bix of the fifteen having first, seen daylight in that province; Quobec is second with four, Manitoba arid Nova Scotia each claim two, and B. C. one. Where They Enlisted Honours for* enlisting most of the V.C.'s go to the West, Manitoba contributing five, Saskatchewan two, Alberta six, and British Columbia four- a total of 17. Eastern Canada enlisted 14, including ten from Ontario (the biggest numbor of any single province), and four from Quebec (two of whom wero Ontario men who enlisted at Valcartier in August, 1!H4). The remaining one was enlisted in England. The record of enlistments by cities belongs to Winnipeg, where the whole of Manitoba's V.C.'s joined the colours. Both Toronto and Ottawa enlisted three. The First Division have won eleven nf the V.C.'s. the 2nd and 14th Battalions Holding two each; the Second Division have won five, the Third w The Stretchable Firebox Durability in a firebox depends mostly upon its ability to expand when hot and to contract when cold, without cracking. Ever notice that steel rails are laid with a space at the ends-it is wider in winter than in summer. That space allows for stretching in the warm summer weather. Kootenay fireboxes are made of nine piece9 of pure semi-steel. They can' expand without cracking. That is why Kootenay fireboxes last so long. If you do have to change a piece it comes out with a tap �of a hammer-no bolts, no rivets or other fastenings-just good accurate fitting.

For months there was nothing noticeable about the boy except that he never took his eyes off the work he was doing. A few weeks ago the manufacturer looked up to see the boy standing beside his desk. "What do you want*" he asked. "Want me pay raised." "What are you getting?" "Ten shillings a week." "Well, how much do you think you are worth?" "Fifteen shillings." "You think so, do you?" "Yesslr, an' I've been thinktn' so for three weeks, but I've been so blamed busy I ain't had time to speak to you about It!" The boy got the raise.-Uplift Magazine. At the coroner's inquest Into the death of Frank Martin, provincial road superintendent, of Prince Rupert, B.C., a verdict of murder was returned against Jack Hartey. HANDS UP! | Western Efforts to Have New Method Adopted; Defeated In Convention Quebec, Que.; Sept. 21. -- Efforts made by western trade unionists to secure endorsement for a plan of reorganizing workers in Canada along industrial lines instead of upon craft Unas, as at present, were defeated by the Trades and Labor Congress this morning. Motions sent to the congress from the Winnipeg and Transcona councils urged that the change was necessary because the capitalist class can successfully defeat the separate trades which must obtain sanction from their international before they can strike. The motions pointed out that organization industrially was the modern scientific method. A debate followed a motion urging that no congress officials should take office under the government. The committee on the constitution recommended non-concurrence in the motion. Delegate Kavanagh, of Vancouver, said no man could serve two masters and must choose between a representative of the working classes or the (government, which represented the ruling classes. Secretary Draper pointed out that, carried to its logical conclusion. Mr. Kavanagh's argument, would prevent any labor man working for the government in any capacity. Delegate Lynch, Montreal, asked what would be the position of labor candidates elected to parliament. The Kavanagh. motion was rejected by a large majority. The salary of the president was raised from $2,000 to $2,500. The congress will- conclude its labors this afternoon. Provincial executive council selected include: Saskatchewan, H. Perry, Regina, chairman; R. H. Chadwick, Moose Jaw; J. T. England, Saskatoon; J. B, Judson, Prince Albert. Manitoba: W. M. Coburn, Winnipeg, chairman; S. Robinson, Winnipeg; A. F. Landry, Winnipeg, and D. R. Duncan, Transcona. , The new officers were called upon for addresses. With Clean Hands Ex-president Wattors said he left the office of president after seven years' service and with clean hands. He denied that he had ever been in the pay of the government, as had been whispered, or any other party. OULD YOU risk a postage stamp tot learn more about coffee?

This was paltry compared with the' millions ho had been able to save and the misery he had been able to forestall by preventing strikes. Mr1. Rees meant to have his say on what the executive did, he assured the congress. Mr. Draper deprecated talk of east and .west. A minority report of the committee of the executive council's report criticized 'the action of Tom Moore in accepting a position on the registration board. AVIATION FUND. Ottawa, Sept. 21.-The Canadian Aviation Fund has been incoroprated with the chief offices of business at Toronto. The aim of the fund is to 'give aid to the firing line at as early a date as possible through trained aviators and airplanes. It was officially stated at Ottawa that owing to impossibility of securing steel rails, further construction work on the Hudson's Bay railway will be practically discontinued for the season. dlow a i] ad mn s! HOW much thought do you give to the War-I mean honest, sincere thought on how we should live in order to win the war? "I mean you who live from day to day in all the comfort that you enjoyed before the war, some of you in even greater comfort- "You who spend as much or more on your enjoyment-who indulge in as many of the good things of life as you ever did- "You who buy what you want to, eat what you fancy., go where you please-^-who deny yourselves nothing. "You have no idea what it means to stand knee-deep in mud-in a dirty trench-with a cold drizzle chilling you to the bone. "You have never heard the shells shrieking overhead-or seen bombs drop from the sky. "But you know these things are. "And yet you go on spending-as if this war were in a story-book-as if the menace of the Hun could' never touch you. "But it could-and it would-but for your armies. "And we-the soldiers who make those armies. ... "Do you^hink we could "carry-on" if we thought for a moment you were not backing us to the limit ? "Do you think we could stand it all-the terrible fighting and the tiresome toiling-if we dreamed, "over there," that you were trifling with this war? "If we knew that you were spending money on frivolous things? "Don't you see that when you spend a dollar on a thing you don't absolutely need, you are using the labor of a man who should be either fighting or making something that will help us-your soldiers- to fight? "Oh, you chaps with money in your pockets-and comfort in your homes-and love of ease cankering your souls! "If you could know-as / know-all that war means-you'd stint yourselves down to the barest �necessities-4o that Canada's money and Canada's material and Canada's labor could all go into guns and shells and boots and uniforms and food-for our boys over in France to fight with."
