The idea is uch a good one that the local bo.ird ' should not rest until the plan is .worked out and put into effect. We have . bad some disastrous experiences in the past -with associated boards of �trade in Southern, Alberta and in Western' Canada, but the trouble with these Institutions was that they were , looked^ upon merely as booster orgai^-: IZBtions which were expected to fill up the country with people, boom "land and real estate values and make .,113 aU rich without working. ' i The national organization mentioned 'at the board-, of trade lunch�Son this week would ba expected to furnish ......EomejihiDg more,in .the way of expert service such as the National .Chamber '.of Commerce organization in the United States, and when people know ; that the U.

Something ol the length to which tKe govemment'there is doing, may be seen trom the tact that'the Commonwealth acceptf'd the situation at the outset that th*' care of the returned soldier, was onei^f national concern.
