We are still a long u-ay from giving as complete a forecasting ser- vice as 'We 'would like, but ure are on said Mr. Thomson. It is all a matter of sta3, he said. Of course, aviation makes the most demands on the forecaster but other industries in Canada are looking more and more to the branch for help.

Lethbridge district apiarists seen bv the Herald state that the short- age of package bees applies chiefly in the north. In the south the situation is abou; normal with bees arriving in good condition. Normal- ly about packages of bees are imported bv Southern Alberta bee- keeoers but this year, with sugar short, far more are being brought in, many farmers turning to bees as a means of increasing their sup- ply of sweetening for home use.
