not be allowed to decrease at this time
through lack of funds. In view of the
coming great drive on the Western
Front in the spring and tlie son sequent
Increase of casualties In the Canadian
Forres; and secondly to give a statement showing how the funds locally
subscribed have been expended. During tlie last twelve months the Cranbrook chapter have made and shipped
to the headquarters of the Canadian

The onorgy with which women are
seizing the opportunity to raise the
st;iiithirds of business und political
Iii" iu tho west is very gratifying to
all thoso who have the real welfare of
the country at heart, and it is to In-
hoped that tliey will have the strength
to avoid tho many pitfalls which will
he placed in tlieir path. Efforts aro
already bolng made to switch thein off
into the tortuous paths of politics,
where they would be quickly swallowed up in existing party organizations;, and their efforts effectively
muzzled. Wo plead with those who
may unwittingly have made a step In
tho wrong direction, to get in line
with their sisters who have so strongly
and  wisely forsworn all politics.

One or tho most valuable of recent
literary contributions to the great
cause Is n booklet by Professor Stephen Loacock, entitled "National Organization for War." In this booklet
Dr. Loacock makes an urgent call for
national thrift and national saving.
He attacks In vigorous style the evils
of extravagance at this crisis fu Canada's history, nnd by trenchant phrase
and apt illustration disposes or various common errors in regard to individual spending of money during war
This pamphlet was originally pub*
Itshod by Ur. Loacock himself, but
tho National Service Doard were so
convinced of Its value In connection
wltli tbeir Thrift Campaign that they
have had it republished and huve un
dertaken Us dlstrlbuton. Copies muy
be obtained by writing to tlie Secretary
of tbe National Service Doard at Ottawa, or by applying to tlie National
