The Home Service department of

Don't Need Uniform to Be
SoMier in This War
Corporal "Pat" Walsh, of the Canadian
army, oue of the returned soldiers
now In Northern West Vinclnla
under the auspices of the Fuul admin- j
istratiou to address coal miners with'
a view of urging them to Increased
production, spoke at Gypsy hall at
Gypsy last night to an audience of
about 200 men, women and children,
and made a strong plea to miners for
eight hours work every day and aiz
days every week . At the conclusion
of his remarks he asked If he could
depend upon every miner present to do
this amount of work and got assurance
from every mine-worker present
to be on the Job.
"You don't need a uniform to be a
soldier In this war." said Corporai
Walsh. "What does a suit of khaki
mean* It does not necessarily designate
the man doing the most efficient
service In winning the war. Some of
the miners can have my uniform if
you want It?" he cried, a statement
mAont to rnnvAT thft that tllA Cfl&l
miners were doing just as efficient
work as those in the trenches. There
are no heroes worth speaking of at
this time among the living." he exclaimed.
"The heroes are those who
lie dead In France."
Corporal Walsh emphasised the nenessitv
for coal and argued that the
work of the miners was fully as important
as that of the boys in the
trenches. "A shovelful of coal may
mean a grave for a square head in Germany,'
he declared and there was a
big round of applause.
"I wasn't sent here by the coal operators,"
exclaimed Corporal Walsh. "I
was sent here hp that grand manPresident
applause of the evening).
"I know that Gypsy has been doing
splendidly. Superintendent Kuzum
tells me that you have been doing
excellent work. I know that you
put over the Liberty bonds and the
Red Cross. Rut there Is something
else that you must put over and that
is this matter of getting out coal."
