WAR NEWS FOOTSCRAY PATRIOTISM SEND-OFF TO MEN In a few days, we do not know how few, one huudred and twenty Footscray boys will be off to the front. Some of us feel that we should; before they go, give them some token of recognition of the sacrifice they are making for our selves and the empire.

Theproposal is to invite them to a farewell entertainment and io if practicable, present each of our soldiers with some little easily carried gift by which to remember his Footscray well-wishers. Pipes and tobacco are" suggested and, perhaps, a pocket knife for the non-smokers. A preliminary test has been made and several traders have promised to give tobacco, and several tobacconists have offered to give pipes. This is only a small effort; there are only 120 of the soldiers. The wealthier members of the community have handed in their cheques to the mayor's fund the ladies are mak...
