228th BATTALION ADDS FIVE THIS WEEK: Two More from Timmins, Three from Matheson. Many More Good Propects. - Since the last issue of The Advance, Lieut. J.M. Allan and Sergt. Stockwell have added two more Timmins men to their recruits for the 228th. Three other good men have also been secured from Matheson, including Mr. Lawrence Johnston, son of Mr. D. Johnston, Mayor of Matheson for several years - this year re-elected by acclamation. The good work, being done for the 228th Railway Construction Battalion is also evidenced by the number of promising prospects now in line in Timmins, South End, Matheson, and many other places in the district. Many of those interested men will no doubt definitely decide to join up with the 228th to "do their bit" with some they know at work.
