Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 2, 1945, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER SUNSHINE FOR HARVEST CALLED FOR IN WEST THE HERALD'S CiTY NEWS PAGE Modern New Plant on "Machinery Row" PAGE SEVEN Unsettled weather across the western has halted cutting and threshing operations which were getting under way in all three and farmers everywhere in the west are hoping for sun now in order to get on the land again. According to the C.P.R. weekly crop statement, urgent need is for warmer and dry weather not only for harvesting but to ripen the later crops, chiefly in west central Alberta. Considerable lodging and flatten- ing of crops due to high winds and heavy rains is reported from many localities and where grain has been left for straight combining increas- ed sawfly damage is apparent. Hail losses are reported from the Hardisty and Bassano subdivisions of the C.P.R. One advantage of the week's rains has been the improve- ment of pasture and water condi- tions in southwestern Saskatche- wan, but they have come too late to save the situation in south- eastern Alberta. When cutting stopped, Manitoba reported 87 per cent of wheat cut and the same of barley; Saskatche- wan 49 per cent wheat and 59 coarse more rain. grains, and 30 per cent wheat and 37 oats and barley. Greatest progress in harvesting has i been in eastern and southeastern Manitoba. In Peace Rivet From Peace River districts news of harvesting Is good and if favor- able weather continues gram cut- ting should be finished in all dis- tricts north and west of Smith shortly. A small amount of thresh- ing has been done and some grain has moved to elevators west of Grande Prairie. From Smith south- ward some barley is cut and wheat harvesting has started. though daily showers have interfered with continued work. British Columbia Macintosh apples will be ready soon for ship- ment and canneries are now work- ing on tomatoes, beans, peaches and plums. Vegetables and root crops are maturing rapidly, though threshing of peas and grains has been halted by rain. Warm dry weather on the Island has been ideal for threshing operations and the tree crops are moving in volume. Late pears and apples now need Empire Day Of Prayer Labor Day Message By Percy R. Bengough, President, Trades and Labor Congress of Canada._________ It is not impossible, in fact it is reasonably probable, that this Labor Day a the last Labor Day of this global war. With such reasonable expectations, however, we must see that there is no easing up on the job of winning this war until the defeat of Hitler and all that he represents is an accomplished fact. To do otherwise could, in spite of the great military and naval suc- cesses that have been achieved, bring disaster. The Nazis and Fascists have prov- ed themselves implacable and in- genious foes. They still have schools of scientists devoting their think- ing to the inventing of machines for destruction, and the longer this war lasts the more time will be spent in such thinking, and greater and more fearful machines will be designed and produced for the De- struction of human life and habita- tations. It naturally follows that the sooner we can celebrate tne day of the earlier we will all get back to saner thinking when our scientists and others can devote their time to figuring and planning for the conservation and improve- ment of human life. Imagine the great advancement that could have been attained, ana sufferings eliminated for the masses of the people in this world if one- half of the effort and Ingenuity that has been expended in this war for destructive.purposes could have been devoted to constructive pur- poses for the benefit of all. It ia the first duty of the workers on this Labor Day to again dedicate them- selves to do all possible to bring victory in the shortest possible time. We must not forget our great obli- gations to all those in the Allied and the undergrounc in Fasciet-controllec countries, who have fought and diea that we can continue as free men And women. No Scarcity The peoDle of this world must realize and profit from the knowl- edge gained during this war period and keep in mind the enormous productive capacity that been developed as a result of the uar effort. It has been proved con- clusively that there is no such thing as scarcity. We have an abundance of materials. We have the knowl- edge and ability to fashion these materials to every human need anc requirement, and unquestionably we can grow and produce in abundance all that we require. In this of plenty we still have many wno think in terms of scarcity. This kind of thinking causes poverty, under- nourished children, miserable hand- outs of chanty to relieve distress and bags of peanuts, like month, to the aged if they can prove they are on the verge o: starvation. Such thoughts and thi conditions resulting from thinking 111 scarcity do not fit in with oui modern scientific world, and mui be put on the junk heap if justice to be done to those who have fough and worked to save this democracy The blood and sweat expended tc save our way of life was not ex pended to maintain systems of city relief, and artificial depressions with want and misery where there are ru famines. It was expended to sav a democracy that will operate fo the good of all people in the worlr of plenty, a democracy that wii allow our people to live a largei life with a buying power in balanc with our advanced productive abil ity. The workers and all sane think ing citizens must insist on a system of life in the post-war period tha will guarantee to every citizen, abl and willing to work, an adequate in come sufficient to provide a goo home and comfortable living fo himself and his family; that wi: free all from fear of want for th whole of their lives, with efficien treatment during illness, and fu protection in old age. We hav proved under the exigencies of wa that anything that is physical! possible is financially possible. Sue aims are not visionary They ai practicable and long overdue. O this 1944 Labor Day our objectiv must be. "Victory and forward to larger life."

In connection with the Eiiipire Day of Prayer the following "Hymn or the Nation" is published below: HYMN FOR NAliON CBy EMILY LOMAS) Thou wno dost hold the Nation in Thine Hand, Hear us, we pray for our native land, people would now com- mend to Thee, Pardon our sins, and make ua truly free. Our hearti are burdened; Lo, we hear Thy call, 'Come unto Me, and bring your burdens all'; Heeding Ihy call, Saviour Divine, Our Nation save and blew, Lord make us Thine. Direct and lead us in the way of Life, That great highway which knows not sin or strife, Removed above self-seeking may we be, Then shall our burdened hearts find peace in Thee. Thus shall we to the round us show There is a higher and surer war to go, And all who will walk may walk Its lofty height, And bring to earth true joy and peace and light.
