The fact that Prime Min- ister Kins has undertaken to raake bushels cf low grace Caradian wheat and bushels of oats available for export Ehipcisrit to starviEs cauntries, in addition to other commitments, is proof that the Ottawa Govern- ment considers the world fooa situation warrants drastic measures. _In view of these facts there will fee a. tendency on the part of Cana- dian, farmsrs to put pressure on Hieir farm programs for 1946 so that as much as possible of all foods may be produced. There is limit, with present farm labor farra implement scarcities, to what fanners can do to increase supplies. There is, too, core of TEsistance againsi" gambling in food production by an over-ambitioss program of stabblins-in wheat and other grains is. the belief that the world food markets are so sensitive ;to aay surpluses that in the long run ths farmer is penalized lor his efforts. However, we think it may be salt! that there will be no down" strikes oti the farms of Canada year, and that ths producers will expect that govern- ments will take care of them in the isatter of prices _for what they pro- dues and of what they have to buy. riaraers have a right to expect this j if they go ali-out to feed a starving j world until world fsoU. producuoaj returns to normal. viewed, gladly accepted curing the war.; :o wanted more freencm.

Then there are others who declare that nothing but a remov- ing of the lid, allowing prices ana wages to reach their own level as dictated by supply aad demand, will bring about stability in the long ran. As we have pointed out in these columns many times recently, one of tiie problems affecting Western Canada's economy is that it is very difficult to maintain a fair relation- ship as between the prices of farm commodities and the prices of what the farmer must bay to carry on his enterprise.

How a fair division of the nation- al income as between farmers and others can be worked out we do not Snow. But ve do Jmow that here- after farmers are going to demand parity.
