Increased Production In the evening Jas. UlcCaig of Edmonton, spoke on "Increased Production in'AVar Time." Farmers h^ve today a measure ot economic independence hitherto unknown. The Alberta govemment realizing the necessity of encouraging uovelopment of our idle lands and Increasing the production of our farms haro piade it possible for the farmer to borrow money for long tern;s If nece.isaryat so low a rate as ricj.
