“A Conscientious Objector. Oliver K. Pimlott, a young man well known in Belleville as a singer and church worker, also as a hockeyist, was apprehended yesterday under the Military Service Act as an absentee, and later was taken by an escort to the military depot at Kingston.

Although notified to report for service he neglected to do so,and it is said that his reason for not doing so was that he is what is termed a ‘conscientious objector.’ The young man attended Albert College here for some time with the intention of qualifying himself for the ministry. Of late, it is alleged, he identified himself with a religious order which is against war in any form and the shedding of blood.”

“Earn and Give Campaign. In conjunction with the two and a quarter million dollar Red Triangle Fund which is being raised across Canada for Y.M.C.A. work for soldiers at home and abroad, a special boys’ fund is being promoted whereby 6000 boys are being asked to give $60,000 in ten dollar units, it being understood that they must earn the money themselves or give it out of their allowance or savings. They have to October 1st to make the payments. A regular bond is issued and coupons given as receipts for each payment.

Mr. F. S. Deacon, the local director for the campaign, reports that to date 44 boys have signed up for the Belleville district. It is expected that at least 50 will be secured here. Mr. Ellis of the local Y.M.C.A. who has been organizing seven counties in this district reports excellent returns from all centres. The general fund for the Red Triangle for this district has been covered by grants from the Belleville City Council and County Council of Hastings.”
