hie home address as South Vancouver, whore his mother resides,
is the first local boy to return, who

is one> who' has done "his bit."
Cliff will visit for a number of days
iu the city before returning to the
coast where he will "go under treatment for six months, in one of the
convalescent hospitals.
Pte. Schenck first went in training at Grand Forks and later
going to Victoria, and from that
place he was'tsent to England
and later to France. In November, 1915 he received his first
wound, having been buried by a
ehell at Plug Street, 20 miles

him up in a hospital in England
for about four months, after which
he returned to duty with the
famous 49th Battalion. He received his second wound in June,-
1916. This one was 'only slight,
but.in'September, 1916, he got hit
with, two"bullets," one shattering
the elbow of his right. arm, the
other piercing his right side. After
receiving these wounds, he was
taken to the Warrington hospital,
where he was four months, and at

Canada. The journey from England to Vancouver took five weeks.
Cliff was at the front when the
Tanks first made their appearance.

Head Tax on Canadians   ! geiierai. h.s brother, Jack Leckie
I'nder the provisions of the new
United States immigration law,
whiidi will become effective on
May 1, Canadians crossing the
border to take-up residence will be
subject to. the head tax, which has
been increased from ���?���_: to 88,
Under ihe old law, Canadians were
not classified as foreign.immigrants.
Canadians, or persons having uninterrupted residence of one year in
the Dominion, making transient
visits to the United States, will
not be Hubject to the SS tax, but it-
is.expected that the new law will
lead to more rigid inspection by
the United States immigration
officers with regard to visitors from
Canada. What the regulations
will be in this regard is not yet
known to the Canadian transportation interests.

It Is Hard To Hear
When Yon Do Not
Speak Right Into
The TELEPHONE.
When you are telephoning, and
your lips are six or eight inches
away from the mouthpiece, the
person you are talking to can
hardly hear you. The exhaustion
of listening to a weak, incoming
voice, is like trying to catch every
���word spoken in a whisper. Under
such circumstances, the true import of the message is lost.
The telephone is built for actual
conversation, but to realize the full
benefit the lips must be close to
the mouthpiece.
The farther away from the telephone you are, the more difficult it
is for the other persons to hear you.
