In one statement Mr. Duplessis Is right. He pointed out that the could not get higher revenues and The Provinces higher and still lower taxes. That expectation would be as mythical as Social Credit in Alberta. If we are to nave higher revenues for governments ail round we may make up our minds as taxpayers that we -will pay for them. However, there is -very good reason to believe that, provided. Canada, follows a wise course ia we can. have Higher satkroal income than ever -we have sad in peacetime, in which case the incidence of taxation may Be lower and yet jield higher total taxes. That is why it is so import- ant that every Canadian should press for the widest measure of Ireedoin la trade in the post-war .period. It is about the only way we can get the additional revenue to pay higher tax revenues without leejing the pinch too much. Not Good Argument There seems to be some heart- burning over the fact that on the ground when a weather front is moving in. We hope the time will come soon, when they'll be able to tell farmers and shippers and other businessmen whose ac- tivities are affected by the weather just what they may expect a week in advance. What with jet planes and rockets and atom bombs these days, we don't thlnV we're asking "too much on the weather front.

We are quite sure it is not, but we would to see early action to get the Fair Board appointed, upon whatever new basis may be found best, so that we wiU be sure of a fair In 1347, and sure also of the develop- ment of those other aids to agri- culture which the Lethbridge Fair Board should sponsor.

S? People's Forum WORLD GOVERMEXT Editor Eerald. Sto: We know that the achieve- ments of science in methods of de- stroying human life ia modem warfare such as the release of atomic energy, radio and radar di- rected projectiles, long range bombing equipment, bacteriological warfare, have rendered obsolete all past human endeavors to limit or prohibit the carrying on of any particular kind of warfare. Military authorities are prettv well agreed that against those there Is no feasible defence In con- gested areas. We know that in communities and municipalities the individual has had to submit to certain restrictions for the com- bined good for the whole group. We know that in the province, state or other larger area diais and the larger grouping of municipalities have submitted to a few restrictions and relinquished some 'sovereignty to the larger as- sembly, this undoubtedly for the good of all. We know that In the nation the individuals and the prov- inces have relinquished a certain amount of sovereignty to the larger national responsibility. Again this undoubtedly for the good, the being- of aH. This is as far as the majority of mankind has gressed so far. Many of us now believe, and are convinced that the time has arrived here for the next step in the orderly evolution of hu- man progress and that step Is that the national government, all national governments, should now relinquish such sovereignty as Is necessary to form a world govern- ment with power to do away with all national warfare. Unless we do this, and do it now, our next war will be so destructive that few caa survive. We must recognize that the time to do this is very short indeed. The late President Roose- velt in his great undelivered speech clearly foresaw this rapidly ap- proaching climax.

The appointment of a cisy man- ager to take charge of Owen Sound's municipal organization may not be the answer to all this city's civic troubles, but certainly if a man of the right type had been in charge here for the last 15 or 20 years many or our mistakes doubtless would have been avoided and the finances of the city in a better position. Owen Sound would do well to study the City Manager plan to see if it could be successfully applied to our own municipality. The Road Ahead 87 Cmpt, J.

Before wa forget him, perhaps we should stop and pay a little honess tribute, and offer a sincere vote of thanks to Mr. Gordon for the job he did of controlling prices during the war. Possibly, if he had been given a free hand, he might have been able to keep them, sibly he could have held the line. At any rate, as long as the govern- ment gave him the support he re- quired he did a good equal- led in any other country.

A survey published by the state deDartment's new office of interna- tional information and cultural ac- tivities mentions the Mataauska settlement project as proof that happy and successful farm life is possible in Alaska and says great potential farm areas remain un- touched. In eight vears the administration has spent on the Mata- nuska project. The result is 170 pro- ducing farms which contributed Sl.- 000.000 worth of food a year to the vrar effort.

This is election year for all 435 members of the house. Per- haps, after passing the bill and sat- isfying the lobby the representatives hope the senate will reverse their judgment. 20 Years Ago From the Files of The Lethbridge Herald.

This is being reflected in increased demands for higher wages. Higher spiral up and well have inflation money, even if they have to go without other things. As ia the case of oeople who pay excessive to the point where they have to cat down on expenditures for food and clothing. However, once prices hit a level which provides a good margin of profit, other producers will tend to be attracted, and will try to get into the same business. If viiey do, then competition between manu- facturers will tend to bring prices back down. So we are now at this point. With the present scarcities of ma- teriais, Uie scarci'les of skilled labor, and restrictive govemir.ens competitors are going to find it hard to get started. If they can't get started then we can expect prices and wages to Chester Bowles, director of the U.S. office of economic stabilization: "If prices rise uncontrolled, we do nc-t get more get only inflation.

However where people really need the prod- uct, they will continue to, buy so long as they can get hold of the a consequent collapse.
