Tn connection with the scheme for the 50,000 extra recruits, over a hundred replies (so far unopened) have been received by the municipal re cruiting authorities for the Shire of Wannon, and during the next week or two (when holiday makers will have returned to their homes) there is ex pected to bo a hi» budget of answers. In fact the number to be received must equal the number of enquiries sent out, and everyone is to be ac

counted for. It is' said some persons have torn up their paper0, imagining that by doing so they have disposed d them, but this is a delusion which will entail an enquiry and pos sibly discomfiture. Neglect to send the papers in is illegal, and everyone so offending will be dealt with accord ing to law.

Colernine showed its usual anima tion on Christmas Eve. The main

" A Hero of the Dardanelles" is

the title of the premier subject to be shown at the Red Cross picture show on Saturday evening, and this

will combine all the attributes of a i good lovo story and the thrilling features of actual warfare. The story is founded on the notable ex ploit, which has beeu chronicled iu almost every newspaper, wherein an Australian and a Turk engaged in a struggle for life on the edge of a cliff. This incident is shown with all due regard lor the requirements of reali ty, and is generally recognised as a real -thrill. In other respects the film shows a young fellow engaged \ in various sports, with which he be

comes uninterested when the call to arms arises, then he follows rifle I training, and qualifies tor enlistment,

and thence onward the spectator is taken through the embarkation for the front., life in Egypt, the lauding at Gallipoli, the fighting which there took place, including the charging of Turkish trenches, firing on the wounded and the Red Cross, retribu tion, and a safe return home. This specialty is well worth seeing. The balanco of the films will bo of enter taining variety. The whole of the net proceeds wili go to the Red Cross
