' QUESTION OF LABOR IS EASILY SOLVED THERE-WOULD., HELP FACTORY * Although Southern Alberta boasts of the only beet sugar;: factory . in Western Canada, the efforts of; farm? ct8 in the irrigated districts immediately tributary to Lethbridge. .have not been able to supply the demand for the raw material of the; plant, the reason being that the scarcity of labor makes it-well night .impossible to follow beet raising with pro-lit. However, .anexperiment was made last summer at the-Provincial JaiLfarm which will probably.change the � situation. .Four1 acres of sugar, beets were raised, and a tine crop was harvested: - , . - 1 This year the experiment wilt be, carried still further,-if present arrangements are consummated, Yesterday an agent for the Knight Sugar Co. called on Warden-Riycrs, and asked him to sign a: contract to. supply beets from 50; acres. When , seen j *y the Herald-the warden stated tliat ho. had not signed .the; contract, but he believed that it-would-be a'paying proposition. Last' year .the.farn* raised. .120 tons of potatoes, .-tiuf, if the beet industry is followed it will .supplant the potato^'raisingt;;,The jail can furnish .'.-plenty:61',: labori?tQ.s;make the raising of beets practicable and profitable, and it- is--likely�.'���{thai' several hundred tons will bo?supp'l1odfto; the factory next tall.
