A. Buchanan, member for Lethbrldge', constituency has been receiving red-hoi wiree of protest. Mr. Buchanan points, out that, in his opinion, 4he people at theea po.inte are needlessly alarmed. The time for the completion, of the line ' under the act piias^d in 1916 la March, 1921. The Canadian Pacific la merely applying; for an exten*!on of this time as a matter of .provwction. It Is possible, owing to. the scarcity of; pick and ahovel labor this year,.due to the return dfrSO many ofthls claas of labbrer to their European homee following the war, tAatthe company, no matter how anxious to complete the Manyberrlet-AltaWan gap this year, might be unable to accemp(le>ii this program, in :Wh:ch cace their charter for the uncompleted portion' cf the line woaid lapae and th� railway contpany might throw up ita hands entirely. � \ i It Is stated here that Mr. Buchanan, when the bill comea up, will press for a very definite announcement from the company that construction of the gap will be undertaken this year and will be completed as quickly aa possible. It is pointed out very strongly by Mr. Buchanan that the people of Etzlkom and Foremost in opposing the extension fail to realize that the defeat of the extension might mean no construction at all. Legal protection is all the C.P.R. wanta and that can only be secured by following the usual procedure of applying for an extension of the time allowed for the completion of the road.

WARNING TO FARMER3 The minister wished the nev/e-papers to-give the v.'idest possible publicity to the situation, to urge farmers and ranchers not to depend upon getting their supply from the government, although the present campaign to obtain feed was being continued. The situation was even worse in some areas : of the north than the south. Fred Davis, Glelchen, said ho was informed that there were some 3,000 tons of feed available in his constituency for use. ^ George Hoadley, Okotoks, suggested to the minister that- as there was bound to bo a shortage of feed and horses at the critical time of seeding, he thought it might be well to organize a campaign to obtain tractors to do thi� work, letting them out on contract. Mr. Marshall said he was glad of the suggestion, that the department woidd take up the matter with large ranchers who owned a number of tractors to see if they could not be contracted out among other ranchers and that men to supervise their operation would be provided by the department.
