BOOST IN BUTTER CAN'T BE HELPED (Ottawa To the Editor of The Journal: Apropos oE the recent jump in the price of butter, 1 venture to submit, some facts concerning the world's butter situation at the present mom- cut. Incidentally I would point out] that the quantity of butter In store in Canada, according to the last month- ly report of ihe High Cost of taring Commissioner, would provide less than two supply for the whole of j Canada. The price of butter in Canada, or In any ot her country, dope nd s on the world's supply and demand, a3 butter is now an articlo of general in- ternational trade. We are eating Xew Zealand butter in Ottawa today. The price of butter Is high in Canada bo- cause there is a great shortage in the world's supply.

We would hardly expecl a Canadian merchant who had j butter for sale to dispose of It for I lessI money in Canada that he was be- iiig offered for export to European countries. The commerce of the world is not conducted in that way. The quantity of butter in storage, or the milk supply of cities, has nothing whatever to do with the price of butter In Canada, except in so far as the quantity produced here affects the world's supply, but with an annual shortage of over pounds at the present moment the Canadian ex- Are Yonr Children Learning to Save Money? v Each maturing son and daughter should have a personal Savings Account in the Union Bank of Canada, with opportunities to save regularly, and tiainlng in how to expend money wisely.
