Thomas, J.P., who pre- sided, made a most effecth-e speech, de- spoke of the serious nature of the times through which we are passing, ird saii-i it was necessary that at home as v.eil as at ihe front there should ho tho utmost loyalty and single- of aim. He believed that, i bbek though the clouds had been, there wa& a silver lining now appearing, and if we all pulled together it would not bo long before Britain and her Allies secured the glorious victory for which they wero striving.
