The World Out of Balance Commercially Take as one example, lumber, which with mauy other articles over- production exists. At the-rnost ex- travagant cost stocks are being' piled up and mpre men, are called to aggra- vate the situation by producing more, whilst once tilled land now grow weeds instead of food. Those at the, head of partially noa essential industries the 'ower iu some measure to restore .he balance at a time like this. It wpuld wise to close works produc- ing goods not required, and instil into the workers the fact that the nation calls upon them to help the farmers. The good they can do would-be unl: versal and of benefit to any over- worked industry they let rest for a while. Hundreds ot thousands of workers are at work producing lumber, whilst huge stocks are accumulating all over this continent. Some operators reply, "Our finances will not permit us to close down." That can surely bo ar- ranged with sensible bankers, at least in Canadt, whera the Bankers Association wield an intelligent and dominating influence In The farmers would certainly ap- preciate the adoption of a policy which would very materially assist hem, and their powerful: organiza- ona could wield a convincing argu- lent by boycotting the goods ot uianufaclnrers who refuse to comply with a measure which would be ot ar -reaching to the general ubllc who' call for cheaper- food, -hich if Is impossible to. s.upply if elfish manufacturers monopolize a.11 ho man power available'- at rices fanners 'cannot afford to pay.
