On Saturday the Dominion Government WarTrophies Exhibit "will be  shewn in Vancouver for the last time  "and next'Ayeei'cJ"vv'ili'*be' taken to Victoria. From that city the exhibit will  be sent to OttaAva, Avhere certain trophies Avill bo retained for the federal archives, while the remainder will  be distributed to all parts of the Dominion. In this distribution it will  be the aim of the goArernment, it is  understood, to send trophies to those  districts in which regiments wore recruited that won them on the field of  battle.  Those avIio haAre not seen the exhibit yet should not miss the opportunity  presented this week cf journeying to  Vancouver.       it   is  doubtful  if  any  more complete display of war photo-  j graphs and trophies will ever be pres-  i ented in Canada again, and no master  I how much one may have read about  ; the Avar, or been  told about it, cue  ' cannot  say  that   the  most  complete  kncAvledge  has    been obtained until  this' exhibit has been seen.    As a matter of fact those Avho have visited the  show say that rhey have learned mere  about the actual methods employed in  fighting through this    medium    than  they havo in all the years of reading  during the war.
