This bill provides tor the setting up of a fund under amount equal to two years interest on the bonds ot the district may be advanced at any- time that interest on the debentures is in arrears. Mr. Stewart told the house that'in the United Slates, there were only two slates that guaranteed imgation bonds and these for five years only. He said that as the Lethbridge Noithern schelne, in addition to the .assistance act, provides for construction work and for three year's interest, the result is that five years interest is pro- vided for oeritfte bonds which is equal, to.ahy guarantee ever given in the states. the'prevlous year 000 Condition .of a year ago was per f.ent.'jjf a ri'onna! crop last 10 Heporis lhat Brett Britain and the United Stales had' called upon Franco to withdraw her troops from.
