The. appointment of .a per-inauent spcratafy, part of whose salary the city is asked.I9 pay. wa^ the step needed to place the organization .on a business footing. Lethbridge cannot afford to be behind other -cities in doing her share to care tor the returned men, and if there is expense incurred it borne. It would seem, hpwever, that the time will have to come when all expenses lu connection of the :retunied soldier Vill have to be met by'the DominiOii � of Canada, and small municipalities should not be cronipelled to toot the bin. < Yesterday's meeting of the Khaki i.Xeaguo brought out the fact that there its much left to be desired in the method of handljng returned veterans. Some,'it seems, are discharged Tietore they are well; In^the case of others the pensions are a long time In coming through, varying from three to five months. These  are matters which should be righted as soon as possibli. It' is easy to understand, however; that the^ Dominion has to feel its way to odtablish the best ' method 'and a lot of incnnvonlence can be excused. R. B. Bennett says Western Canada will need 15,000 farm laborers fhls spring to seed the land, and the only real suggestion he has for getting' them is from the United States. Wonder If R.

There are going to be losses in merchant shipping, of course, but there are going to be a lot of useless subs in England's scrap heap after the war. Farmers should not hesitate about sowing the biggest acreage possible because ot shortage of farm labor. Let them make their wants known and it will be up to the authorities to find the men. Production m^st be kept up to the highest notch. The Ottawa Citizen has put it up to Hon. Bob Rogers to put up or shut up.

In : .the meantime there should be some' latitude given the ofBcers In the cases of men who have been discharged before they are fit. and also In the cases ; of delayed pensions. If they need .�siUioney someone Bhould be In ,a posl--i.tlpn to supply their wants without 'ftSetting wound up in yards of red tape. There Is no red tape once the iJinen are In the trenches.
