The promotions bom this class will be based on  ths students' work throughout ths  year. As the following marks show,  ths work oi over half ol this cross is  far from satisfactory.

Thia note is inserted for the express  purpose,of bringing th.s matter to the  notice ,of parents, for unless there is a  decided improvement in both work and  effort these students will never get  past the first year's work at high  school.

Interesting Account of Trench Life Given By Serg. D. Lloyd  and Pvt." Billy "Wilson  Raymer's small hall was well filled  Tuesday evening at the ''Smoker''  given in honor of the Kelowna men  who havo returned after taking their  share in the fighting at the front. The  room was gayly decorated with flags  and bunting, thia work having been  done during the afternoon by the boys  of the new contingent now recruiting.  The whole programme was carried out  in a pleasant free-and-easy manner,  with pipes, cigars and oigareUes going  full blast, and though the air was  thick at times this only seemed to add  to the cordiality of the evening.  Ths gathering was called to order  at 8.80 by Dr. B. F. Boyoe who acted  as chairman. Briefly he explained the  objects of the gathering, and caUsx)  upon Mayor Jones as the first speaker;.  His Worship echoed the feelings ol  all present in expressing his pleasure  in meeting together to welcome home,  four of Kelowna's heroio young men,  Sergt. Dug. Lloyd, Corp. Anderson,  Private Wilson and Sergt. Jack Taylor. Ths first three named were [with  them on the present occasion, but  Sergt. Taylor had unfortunately been  unable to attend. Kelowna, said the  Mayor had already sent many men to  the firing hue who had given ,��� good  account ot themselves, and there were  more to follow, who he had no doubt  wouM maintain the high standard set  by the first contingent. These men  deserved every credit for the groat sacrifices they were making, for it was  sasy enough for us to sit at home in  safety while others went out to fight  our battles. In closing he made a  touching reference to the late W. B.  Pooley, who had taken the greatest  interest in the formation of the Volunteer Reserve, and who he 'had no doubt  would have been delighted to have  been there to welcome the boys horns.  The Mayor's remarks were rounded  up by the lusty singing of "For they  are Jolly Good Fellows," following  which was a pianoforte solo by Mr.  H. Tod. Boyd.  A miscellaneous program followed  consisting of songs by Mr. G, S. Mo-  Kenkio, Mr. Smith and Sergt. Chaplin,  a recitation "The Man from Eldorado" (Servioe), by Mr. Eric Dart, a  violin solo by Mr. Drury Prycs and a  comic boxing bout by Privates La-  pointe and Priestley of the 102nd, ret-  eresd by Mr. P. DuMoulin.  Sergt. Dug. Lloyd was then called  upon for a speech, and he responded  by giving a most interesting account  of his experiences from the time of  leaving Kelowna until he wae invalid.]  ed homo after the terrible battle at  Ypres.  Sergt. Lloyd went .first to Valearr  tier, arriving there in the middle ol  the night in the cold and rain. In  spite of this chilly reception, he be-  lieved Valcarticr was the finest training camp he had seen anywhere. There  were line accommodations for the men,  good quarters tin I n *>1 ndid rifle  range.. His trip across the Atlantic  was not the least impressive of his  many experiences. They left Quebec  and travelled to Gaspe Bay, as beautiful a bay as he had ever seen, bom  which place they set out one Sunday  evening In 88 large liners in a long  tingle tils with about , quarter of   .  mile between each boat, convoyed by  a large squadron of battle cruisers.  Daybreak on Monday morning found  them arrayed in three lines with cruisers leading each line and protecting  the f!an!ts and rear. It was a sight  never to be forgotten. The whole  thing too, was carried out with the  utmost seoreoy the men at no time  having any Idea where they were or  where they were going.  They finally landed at Plymouth and  proceeded at onro to Salisbury Plain,  one of his recollections of which was  the terrible mud. After en inspection  however by General Alderton, during  which the General's feet slipped from  under him eliciting the exclamation  "Damntfbie, damnable, shift out of  here at once!" they were moved to a  better.location. They went through a  strenuous training there in trench war-  fare, and    route   marching   at night.  Finally in February they got across  the channel to France, and it was  there that the real work began and  during one night they marched 39  miles. Sergt. Lloyd's stories oi life  under the strenuous conditions whioh  charaoterizeed the early months of the  war were listened to with the keenest  interest. The routine in the trendies  anything but pleasant, but duties  were carried out with great cheerful-  noes. One half hour before daybreak  the orders would come for every man  to bo at 'his post, as attacks were to  be expected then. . During the day  it was two hours on duty and lour off,  and sometimes a little sleep could be  snatched when things were quiet.  The duties of the men on the "listening posts" were especially hazardous.  Two men would be placed out in front  under whatever cover they might find,  (usually a hole when some large  shell had left a great crater) with a  long string reaching back into the  trenches. The string was attached to  a (in can, and signals were given by  pulling on it. One pull every quarter  or half baur meant that all was  right; two pulls meant that someone  was moving around, while steady pulling meant danger, and the men in the  trenches were warned to be ready.  He spoke highly of ths British artillery which was second to none. On  one occasion a German machine gun  had been tiring on them for a couple  days, when ho happened to notice the  puffs of smoke while looking over the  parapet with his glasses and later saw  a German helmet moving around. He  oalled up the commanding officer of  tho artillery division, who took a few  observations, and despatched an orderly with a few numbers, say 1-4-7-6-9.  Ths orderly disappeared and the officer  turned to Lloyd and said: "Watch that  machine gun." In a few minutes a  single shell went singing overhead, aad  the Germans and their gun went up Id  the air. i  Onoo a German aeroplane came over  his trench in a fog, when suddenly a  French machine appeared, at though  out of the clouds, immediately above  him and dived straight down' at it.  The German plane was wrecked and  crashed to earth Just behind ths German lines.  Sergt. Lloyd told in a very graphic  Benvoulin Notes  Mr. Alex Reid and son left last weak  on a short visit to Begins.  a a  Mrs. B. J. Lund arriwd ThuiM'ay  on a visit to her daughter, Mn.

The pupils of both  schools did splendidly, showing careful training by the teachers, Mist Hunter and Miss Ray, assisted by Mrs.  Mawhinney as pianist. Mr. W. A.

Peace demonstrations are daily taking plaoe in many places in Germany  aad Hungary. In Berlin the police  were obliged to charge tbe orowds. The  windows of stores and cafes were bro  ken during the rioting. Soldiers in  the crowd took an active part in the  disturbances. A Berne correspondent  writing from Berlin says that the conviction prevails among the masses in  Germany that only a revolutionary  outbreak would force the government  ���  Enjoy* Entertain-  Red Cross Will Benefit From  the Proceeds  Quits a novelty in the way of local  entertainments ,was successfully carried  out last Thursday at the Mission in  aid of the Bed Cross Funds, and the  160 people from all over the district  who crowded into the Mission Packing  House had reason to be well pleased  with their visit.  To turn a packing house into a presentable theatre is no easy task sad  the result did very great credit to  those who undertook tbe task. The  arrangement of the stage and the  lighting effects were much admired and  though the seating accommodation did  include a few apple boxes, the audience .was too much engrossed in what  was taking place on the stage to notice such a IHtle thing.  We have long been aware that there  is an abundance ol latent musical and  histrionic talent at tbe Mission rind  on Thursday night this talent was given full play in the original and interesting program provided.  Tbe first part of the evening was  given up to tome really capital "Tableaux" the Bret one by six children  representing "Nursery Rhymes," and  others by Miss Hobson, Miss Middle-  mass, Miss Bobo Thompson and Mrs.  Pease. Interspersed between these pictures were a dualogue, "Cheerful and  Musical" by Mrs. Oswald Pease and  Miss Middlomass, rentals by Mrs.  Soames, a song, "Chip oi the Old  Block" by Mr. J. H. Thompson and  another dialogue by Mrs. Gardner and  Miss Dykes, "Cross ' Questions sad  Crooked Answers."  After a ten-minute interval an amusing sketch "Tried and Found Want  ing." largely original, and containing  many clever loc8l hits, was given. The  characters were:  Male Impersonator Mrs. Barnehy  Sister ol Male Impersonator Miss Pesss  Miss Jean Jsrdiae . Miss Jean Jatxhne  Friend of Jean Jard'-ni .. .   Miss Margaret Benfrew  Charwoman Mist Hobson  Mr. Smith ��. Fuller  Mr. Lloyd. . Mr. Wantbor0ugh J'jass  Piano Tuner Mr. ciatiast  Mr. Pegasus Peewit (Poet) . . .        Mr. Bartholomew  The various parts were well sustained, and the whole thing went off  with a swing and vivacity which never  (lagged.  The "Mission Follies" a series ol  rollicking songs and choruses by Mrs,  Barmby nnd Miss Jard'ne aa Pierettat  not to forget the. two IHtle dogs, with  songs by Mrs. Soames and Mr. R. A.  Bartholomew and humorous recitals by  Mr. J. H. Thompson, brought ��� thoroughly enjoyable evening to a  close.  Ths net proceeds to be banded to  the Red Croat alter paying expenses  amounted to the tidy sum of 186.00.  Those who had charge of the entertainment were very free in their expressions of gratitude to all who had  helped, especially to Mr. and Mrs.  Soames, whose assistance and advice  were invaluable. Also to Messrs. Max  Jenkins, Mr. Burnetts and Mr. Burbank for facilities of transportation.   O���������  "Id SuDoy Fnue"  A well known' theatrical mega its  strolled into the Royal Victoria The*  tre at Victoria one night last spring.  The attraction that evening was the  new musical comedy, " In Sunny  France," then fresh from the pen ol  the well known Canadian poet, Wilson  MacDonald. When th) magnate left  the magnificent theatre after the performance lie declared the new opera to  bo the most original production he  had ever seen. He also stated that.  there was enough good music in the  play to make a half dozen musical  comedies.  The secret of the popularity of "la  Sunny France" lie? in its extreme originality. To particularize, in one  scene eight' girls execute the remarkable feat of dancing, singing sad performing sleight-of-hand at the same  time. Thirty local children wHl appear in the production aad the author-  composer ot the play declares the high  school girls in hie cast are tire cleverest dancers he has found-in British  Columbia.

New Premier's Manifesto  to the Province  Forecasts Policy  of  the New  Legislative Leaders  In a manifesto issued by I'n mier  Bowser to tho electorate of tilts pro-  vinco, tin- new lender of tiie Conservative governmtn deals with British  Columbia's present (.omliLu.ns unl future pronpeets, 'lhe policy which lhe  premier unci his ooUeaguea have decided to pursue in almost every p.ha-e of  the country's activities is fully outlined.  "While I aoknowledgo." nuid Mr.  Bowser, "and fully appreciate tlie great  honor which has l��een dune me by placing in my hands the leadership ol tho  government, I must at once add that  I fully rectfguize the serious responsibilities which that leadership, under  present conditions, entails, nnd which  will require of my colleagues and myself much serious consideration and  the exerciso of sound business judgment if those duties nro to bo discharged to the satisfaction of the  country.  "Although I havo taken some small  part in tho past twelve years in assisting to frame the policy of the government in the province, which policy  has on four separate appeals to tho  electorate been strongly endorsed, still  in my judgment the time has arrived  when the policy whieh has marked tho  regime of our late administration  should in some respects be modified  and in some n-speets expanded.  "The circumstances which uctuuted  the McBride administration to make  gen-jrons appropriations to various  railway companies, so as to expedite  tho opening up of the country, no  longer exist,     mainly  for  the reason  that this comprehensive programme  of railway construction is about iiora-  pleted; and the cycle of development  now brings us face to face with .'tliev  new and Important duties Kiid icspon-  sibilities.  "To-put il shortly, I conceive the  most vital duly resting upon lh> administration, nf which I am leader, ir,  in the first place, to adopt a sound  business policy, coupled with reasonable retrenchment] until such time at  least as the serious problems uOW confronting our Empire, shall have been  surmounted. To put it in other words  ���British Columbia needs u period {cv  business readjustment, free from any  venturesome or experimental l.v;sla-  lion, in which to recuperate from an  era of speculative expansion, which  was no! peculiar to US hut common to  the whole west and perhaps to tho  greater portion of the American continent.  "It is for this reason that we should  definitely state that fur the present  there shall be no more (lid to new railway enterprises, At the same lime,  we must not forge! that wo have to  face the situation boldly nn4 courageously ia order to see that those  railway enterprises already undertaken, und which promise so much in  the way of making accessible to the  settler large areas of fertile land, are  carried to completion, with due djs.  patch. To ascertnin how best this  can be done, I purpose having iX thorough investigation anil examination  mado into tho business of those companies, in order to decide which will  be the most businesslike way of securing their early completion.  "It w0uld appear to me that just as  soon as peace is dodnred, the world  will witness a financial reaction  Should I be correct in this judgment,  it will Iks necessary for the private individual, the corporations, the various  municipalities of the province and the  province itself, to approach the foreign money markets with the idoa of  borrowing. To do so successfully we  must keep the credit of Britioh Columbia on the highest possible plane an 1  with that aim in view, I will direct  my every energy; and 1 have a profound conviction that if the government approaches the discharge of its  duties in this attitude, such action will  elicit the strong endorsement of the  electors.  "It would be idle were 1 to appeal  to the electorate for approval on the  understanding that we shall at once  be able to launch large development  schemes and immediately usher in a  return of what might properly be  termed tho nbnormnl prosperity which  marked certain phases of the history  of the west (or the last few years.  "We havo no intention of making  any such promise to the people of  British Columbia, nor have we r.ny  delusions as business men regarding  the situation which faces the province  as a result of the involved condition  of the money markets of the world.  "Money, for the present, can only  be obtained at excessive rates of interest; and whilo 1 yield to none in raj  firm belief and confidence in the future  of the province, hi its wonderful resources and in its recuperative powers.  | WHEN BUYING YEAST I  I INSIST ON HAVING  THIS PACKAGE  ISL  DECLINE SUBSTITUTES  This Book helped me  improve my Farm.

P. B. Willits  and Company  Call & get a calendar  Tbe characteristics at high explosives  says a writer in the Daily Kail, is the  extreme violence and suddenness "of  their detonation. Water-is an explo  rive when it it heated and when it becomes steam, but the expansion it so  slow that explosive results do not usually follow unless there is grot* nlg<  J. M. CROFT  Bootmaker.  All kinds of Repairs  BERNARD AVENUE,  KELOWNA.  WHAT THEJT ARE AND HOW THEY  ABE HADE  Gunpowder ol the old type expands  more rapidly than water and produces  a large volume "of gas, but again it  acts with comparative gentleness. High  explosives, on the other hand, pats instantly from a solid or liquid form to  gat and act with terrific energy, tear  ing to pieces any vessel whioh con.  taint them. To make them act in  this manner they usually require a detonator, which' applies a violent shock  to them and starts the explosion. It  it a curious fact that most of the  high explosives, when lighted with a  match, burn-quite quietly. The experiment is not to be recommended, as  accidents will happen, but in ninety-  nine cases out of a hundred there is no  danger.  Almost without exoeption high ex-  sives are composed of some organic  substance, which means some form of  carbon, treated with nitrio acid. Without nitrogen, which is the chief ingredient ol nitric acid, it might be said  that there can be no explosives. Yet  by, a Paradox nitrogen is one of the  most inert gases known and the chief  ingredient of the air we. breathe, possibly its explosive value arises from this  inertness; it combines so exceedingly  reluctantly that on small pnwooatlon  the compound breaks up into gas, fj.lv-'  ing the enormous expansion needed ior  explosive effect.  The most famous modern high explosive and one of the* most powerful is  lyddite, which 'ib very similar to the  French melinite and the Japanese shi-  mose. Lyddite is simply picric aoid  melted with a Utile vaseline. Picric  acid it a yellow, crystalline substance  largely used ns a yellow dj-e and also  very serviceable in medicine for -the  treatment of burns. It is intensely  poisonous and ' a powerful explosive.'  Attention to its value as an explosive  was first drawn in England by the  destruction of a Lancashire factory  where    it    was    being manufactured.  About the tame date it was independently studied in Fronce, and early in  the nineties of last century it was  adopted there for use ip shells.  Picric aoid is prepared from cool tar  ���the refute of gat manufacture. When  the heavy oil ol coal tar is boiled and  chemically treated phenol, or carbolic  add is separated from it. The carbolic  acid is taken, boiled in strong sul-  phurio aoid, and into the evil-smelling  liquid strong and pure nitric aoid is  carefully poured. The resultant is picric acid.... It hat great virtues at an  explosive, but alto some'vioes. Its virtue is that it is not easily exploded  when pure and dry, that it can be  dropped or even thrown about, and  that it does not act violently when  lighted. To mako it explode it needs  a powerful detonator, which usually  contains fulminate of mercury and tet-  ryl. Its chief fault is that it is intensely acid, and when moisture it  present attacks lead and many other  substances, forming exceedingly explosive oompounds which go off quite  unexpectedly.  An explosive similar to lyddite, but  differing from it in chemical composition is trinitrotoldul, of" "T. N. T.,"  Which is largely used in the Herman  army and navy. It is less powerful  than lyddite in the proportion of 119  to 136, but it has certain important  advantages over lyddite. It, is much  more stable and is not aoid, so that  it does not form dangerous compounds.  It is not affected by water or by the  air. When a rifle bullet will detonate  guncotton or lyddite is fired through ft  charge of either of these explosives, it  does not explode trinitrololoul. A  weight of 45 pounds, fulling 1 inches  will explode guncotton; falling 8 inches  it will explode lyddite; but a fall of  32 inches is required to explode trini-  trotolovd. Thus, "T.N.T." is the safest of modern high explosives.  "T. N. T." is a yellow, orystalline  powder, not unlike picric aoid. Like  picric aoid it is a coal tar product,  manufactured from toluene or toluol,  which is very closely related to benzine and is one ol the Rnm" group of  hydrocarbons.  It is converted into "T.N.T." by  meant ol nitration, much the same  process being employed as is used to  convert oarbolio acid into pioric aoid  and lyddite. Under suitable condition  strong nitric aoid turns toluene into  trinitrotoloul. To give n good explosion with "T.N.T." as with lyddite, a  powerful detonator is required. Totryl,  a   coal tar   product,   which contains  "At Ypres"  Yet, we have faced the German lines  With all n Briton's scorn,  And we have seen the powder smoke  ,- Boll back across the mom;  Have breathed the cruel reeking gas  That brings the strongest low.  And we have clenched the musket butt  And grappled with the loe.  For o'er the serried heaps of dead  In Khaki, Dlue and Grey,  We taw the Gorman helmet spikes.  And maddened for the fray;  Right up against their battle front)  Wo slashed our bayonets thru',  And then we thought of Canada  And every thrust was true.  For not a mongrel breed are we,  Tho' nf old races blent;...  Our pride is love of liberty  And not our long desoent.  We came not out of Canada  For pillage or for pay-  But God be with the foeman bold  Who dares to bar our way.  No "lion cubs" men racked us then  As, nll unused to war,  They turned us loose on SalisJrAiry Plain  To see the winter o'er.  And we havo waited weary months  For just such'chance '<, come;  even more nitrogen than "T.N.T." or  lyddite, is usually employed with a  little lead azide, which is lees sensitive  and safer than mercury fulminate, the  matorial generally used in detonators.  Guncotton, the oldest and beet  known of high explosives, It little used  for filling shells, though it was commonly employed in our navy lor the  charging of the heads of torpedoes Until tho present war. In power it it  slightly inferior to "T.N.T." and considerably inferior to lyddite, while it  has this further disadvantage that it  is liable to be set on fire by a shot.  It is prepared by steeping the very  finest cotton in a mixture of nitric  aoid and sulphuric acid, using great  oare and taking precautions to prevent tho temperature rising. Tho process of steeping occupies from one hour  up to a whole day, and strong acid  fumes are given off while the work is  in progress. After steeping the cotton  is washed, kept until it is slightly  damp, when it is compressed into  cakes and blocks, in which form it is  ready lor use.

After being plaoed in  cold storage in Vancouver for a period  of five and'a hall months, they werfe  takon out, carefully examined by  moans pf candling, and some wero given to various persons, who cooked and  tatted both kinds. No information  waa given out as to where the eggs  wero produced. The consensus of  opinion was unanimously in favor of  tho local eggs, as regards flavor, tho  taste and "set-up." The eastern eggs  wore much stronger in flavor and contained a larger proportion of watery  Contents when candled. The writer  contidess that there is no ground  whatever for the assertion that B. C.  eggs are inferior for cold storage purposes, and ventured to state that local infertile eggs produced in the  spring oan more than hold their own  against the best produced outside the  province.

The oaribou are reported to bt) to  plentiful that ranchers and road-house  keepers only havo t0 step out on their  doorstep and kill all the meatli they  need. One team last week arrived in  Dawson with six tons of caribou tent  in by the hunters.  Two Frenoh boys who mushed in  from California Creek, a tributary of  the Sixty-Mile, reported that the oaribou went down tho valley o' that  creek in a phalanx three unlet long  and half a mile, numbering many  thoutandt of heads. After the herd  ' had passed everything in its wake wae  trampled as hard at a pavement. The  snow in that region is a foot or more  in depth.  For many years past caribou have  appeared to be very scarce, and many  noeed' hunters feared that they were'  becoming extinct, but reports ooming  in from all parte of tho north oountry  say they wore never so plentiful.  -ui*M i�� jopitsstiquiv UBuuef) ouj,  ington has been authorized by his  government to disavow Capt.

To the Leaders, Seconds and the  Sooutt of Kelowna Troop:���  Tho Scoutmasters attached to the  troop are glad to have the opportunity, through this column, of wishing  each one of you a Happy Christmas  and all good luck for the coming year,  The good old wish which we havo  all heard so often before at this season of the year "A Merry Christmas  to You," teems a little out of place  just now while our empire it going  through its trial of deadly peril, and  so many of our homes are thinking  anxiously for the safety of the relatives and friends in the battle-swept  fields across tho ooean, and in so  many oases too are mourning' their  Iosb. We know though that it takes  a time of trial and stress to bring out  the qualities whioh show the "stuff"  of/ which a man or boy is mado, and  as it is with men and boys, so it is  with tho nations. The past year and  a half have been showing us the  "stuff" of which the nations compria  ing I the British Kmpire are made, and  surely we have seen much for whiob  we can be happy. There is no influence whioh oan do so much for any  life as happiness mingles with sorrow,  and so we know that our wish for  you this Christmastide can 'be fulfilled,  Wo to earnestly hopo too that when  your places are taken by the Soouts  who will be provided by the generation  after you, these Scouts of the future  will have cause for happiness when  they look out and see of what those  Scouts who have gone belore them are  making of their lives.  The coming of the New Year is a  time when many people make what  they cull new resolutions. Many are  made and nuiny are broken. A Soout  on being invested makes one big resolution, in the "Three-fold Promise,"  which will do him for nil the years  to come, and which includes all the  resolutions for good one could possibly  make. Let us consider thon how we  have kept this promise during the  past year und endeavor to live up to  it much more strictly tluriog the coming year.  Yours very sincerely,  K C. WEDDELL, S.M.  J.

"Pioneer."  IMPORTANT POSTAL ARRANGEMENT  Notice is just to hand from Tho  Hon. T. Chaso Casgrain, l'osttnatter-  Goneral of Canada, that he hat been  successful, as a result of negotiations  entered into with the Imperial Postal  authorities, jn effecting an arrangement with the British Government  whereby parcels from Canada for Canadian soldiers in Pianos and Flanders  will be carried at the same rate of  postage as applies to parcels from tho  United Kingdom for the expeditionary  forces on tho continent, that is.  For parcels    weighing up to  three pounds    24o.  For    po reels    weighing over  three pounds and not more  than seven  pounds     32o.  For    parcels    weighing over  seven pounds and not more  than eleven pounds     38c.  This means u material reduction on  tho oost of parcels, and it is hoped it  will be a source of satisfaction to tho  Canadian publio. This reduotion hat  been brought about by Canada foregoing all postal charges for the conveyance- of those pnroelt in Canada  and on tho Atlantic.  Tho public are reminded, however, in  accordance with the circular issued by  tho Department recently; that until  further notice, no parcel can be tent  weighing over seven pounds.  Loyalty.  Loyalty to our country is good, but loyalty to  our town and exir neighbors is just as Important,  although rarer. To send money out of town for  things that may be obtained from townsmen and  neighbors is not loyal, and does a serious injury  to our schools, churches, and other institutions  supported by local taxation or philanthropy.  Support good roads, good churches and good  schools. Spend your money at home. You will  get just as good or better value, and can see what  you buy before you pay for it, instead of after.  Read the advertisements and deal at home.  Get Your New  Year Resolutions Ready  New plans for the future are  pretty common about this time  of year, but alas! if we accept  the common impression, these  excellent resolutions seldom  come to anything.  Suppose We Had to  Keep Them!  Suppose, (or instance, we had to resolve to  cast off the depression of spirits and paralysis  of effort which have been induced by the hard  times, and make up our minds that the end  of 1916 was going to see us out of the  hole and going strong again I  Do You Think We  Could Do It?  You bet we could I An unanimous and  really loyal effort for a whole year to better  local conditions would have startling results.
