A Brilliant Career
A despatch from London to
the Canadian press announces
the awarding to Joseph Burr
Tyrrell, of Toronto, of the Mur-
chison Medal by the Geological
Mr. Tyrrell, who is associated
with M. W. Sutherland in the
Golden Wonder group at Carna-
by, near Hazelton, is one of Canada's foremost geologists, explorers and mining engineers.
In 1912 he was appointed by the
Ontario government to head the
exploring party to locate the
five-mile railway strip throughout the wilds of Keewatin to
Hudson Bay. Before that he
and his brotheer, J. W. Tyrrell,
had done much exploratory work
for the Geological Survey of Can
ada. His journeys include a survey of the Rockies; of Alberta
between the Bow and North
Saskatchewan Rivers; five years
exploration in northwest Mani
toba as far north as Lake Athabasca; a trip across the Barrel:
Lands, during which he discovered the Dabaunt River and lake,
one of the greatest, waterways in
Canada. In 1898 he left the
Geological Survey and has practiced privately his profession in
the Yukon and Toronto. During
his adventurous career his escapes
from death have been innumerable.
The Murchison Medal of the
Geological Society was founded
in memory of Sir Robert Impey
Murchison, a famous Hritish geo
logist, who died in 1871.

The womenhood of the world
in the aggregate has never been
ablei- mentally or as powerful as
it is today. With the accumulated practical art of centuries,
the skill of the world's women-
hood is ready for use. What will
women do for a world in jeopardy?
jasks the Toronto Dai'y Star.
Canadian women must think
out their own methods of service. No one can direct them
with the ability with which they
can direct themselves. No food
controller can make or carry out
their plans. Every woman carries a weight of responsibility.
None can escape. Is I here a
single Canadian woman who is
willing to shirk her share of the
food crisis? We do not believe
such a woman exists. Wherever
you are, you are the woman who
must make good to save our Allies from starvation, and Canada
from being a vassal to Germany.
This is no idle, sensational cry.
It is as true as the fact which
you could not believe at first, the
sinking of the Lusitania.
Think out what women can do.
Do not leave this to others.
Think for yourself. Women of
the country, women of the town,
think, plan, invent. Our fight
must now be won by food saving,
substitution, production. You
only can do it best. Far better
than anyone else.     Think it out.
"Think out new ways; think
out new methods; think out new
ways of dealing with old problems. Don't always be thinking
of  getting  bqck   to  where   you
were before the war. Get a
really new world." Thatiswhal
Lloyd George says. He knows.
But this is what Canadian women
have got to do.
"Drop that piece of white
bread which you are raising to
your lips! The fate of the world
five hundred years hence is at
We must share Canadian bread
with England, Scotland, Ireland,
France, Italy, or we may be defeated, enslaved by Germany.
Think out plans today for beating your own record.
The Divine Helper of the Universe is depending on  our help.
