This is the philosohy of the exponents of physical development, the argument of those who favor the simple, very old method of being strong and well. It was the same plea when Greece was preparing to conquer the world, that developed tho moot beautiful and powerful women known to history-Dancing is rapidly rising to a place of importance in the development of the young. American women and girls have come to the Greek idea of the dance as a means of keeping their minds ahead in the race for supremacy. There is probably no other country in the . world .where such, intelligent study of the question, and such general application of its principles could be possible. In the countries of Europe the average woman, In fact, nearly all women, are under the restricting influence of masculine domination to an extent that American women cannot even understand. Accordingly dancing now embraces a much wider meaning than formerly. Modern exponents of the dance begin at the right foundation and place as much or more emphasis upon forms of exercise as upon dancing proper. They dwell upon the immense value for fresh air, of living in the open, of riding, swimming and walking in the open. It is often only upon the top of this completed structure that dancing is placed as the complete product of physical education. In this way danc-i ing in its comprehensive sense has I become one of th,e most important j factors in the development of the body in helping it to attain its proper phys-i ical perfection. | LETHllDGEAND CONTROL OVER A LARGE DISTRICT Jno. Horne Named as Chairman -Will Have Supervision in Wholesale District Through the activity of Miss Ponton of the provincial food control organization and the patriotic efforts of a number of local men, a district food control committee was formed here this morning with John Horne as chairman and .las. Hose as secretary which will have a general supervision over food control matters in the Leth-bridge wholesale district. In addition to this thorn is to be organized a local control committee, together with similar committees in the principal communities of the wholesale district, and it is hoped that through these channels Southern Alberta will be kept in touch with all food conservation efforts, and eontimio to' do its share in this direction to help win the war. Those present at (he organization meeting, which was held in the city council chambers, were Mayor l-Iardie, Comm. Freeman, Messrs. Horne, Mac-Kay, Spooner, Rose, and Miss Ponton. The committee named added Messrs. Marnoch. Brymner and Geo. Kerr to its number, and has power to add still further. It will endeavor to cover the district from Bow Island to Coleman and from Vulcan to the boundary, and its principal duties Avili be in the way of explaining and giving publicity to new food control orders, seeing that they are observed 'so far as relations between wholesalers and retailers and the public "are concerned, and of reporting cases of waste and extravagance. The committee will also undertake to have investigations made in cases where local prices appear to be out of bounds, so that the facts may be laid before the government authorities who will carry on any prosecution which may be necessary. During the discussions this morning Miss Ponton voiced the opinion that the cost of milk might be investigated in Lethbridge. She stated that she had heard soldiers' dependents had considerable of a grievance in this regard. Mr. Freeman explained that it appeared to him more of a problem of getting the farmers to produce the milk, at present prices, than to control the price. It the price isn't high enough the farmers will simply sell off their cows. In fact, some of them are now doing that very thing, and a milk famine this winter is not much outside the bounds of possibility. The local price of meats was also the subject of a short discussion. It was stated, that the price of cattle had fallen greatly, but the retail price of meat snowed no downward tendency-It is possible the local committee will undertake an investigation into both these questions shortly, so that if the prices are fa'v the public may have that explained, while if prices are not fair the Canadian food control board at Ottawa will be asked to further investigate. Local Committee Soon. A campaign is under way which was discussed at some length this morning by representatives of various societies, regarding the appointment of a committee of ladies to assist in the educational campaign with regard to food conservation in the city. Miss Ponton of the Provincial food board in Edmonton has been in Lethbridge with regard to this question and the work will be taken up iu earnest in the next few days. The matter will be brought to the attention of the teachers, the churches and tho various WHEN NEURALGIA ATTACKS NERVES Sloan's Liniment scatters the congestion and relieves pain T LEAD A littlp, applied fvilliout rubbing,-will penetrate immediately and rest and soothe the nerves.
