Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 14, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE SIX .THE -LETHBRIDGE DAILY I^nAtp- What National Service Commission Proposes Ottawa, Feb. 12.--R. B. Bennett this evening gave out an official statement covering the deliberations of th9''hatlonal service board, wWcli concluded a sitting of several days' duration hera' on Friday last. The most important announcement from the western standpoint is that conferences are to be held at AVJnnl-peg, Regina and Edmonton, having for their object the supplying of labor for western farmers. Mr. Bennett's statement Includes the following: ("Farm Labor-The most serious pfoblem demanding immediate solution was that relating to the providing of sufficient labor__ttt-seed the land availaljlo and ready for crop this spring. It was estimated that there are'in western Canada 375,000 more acres tof land ready for cropping this coming spring than last year. The .shortage of labor in the west, owing to the heavy enlistments, is about 15,-000 men. This deficiency can only be supplied from three sources: (a) From cities and towns by men not available for military service, but who possess some actual knowledge of farming or, at least, of handling horses; (b) from the province of Quebec, this being the only part of Canada where, from Information disclosed by national service cards, there appears to be a surplus of suitable labor; and (c) from the United States. "Conference*-The national service board has undertaken to corelate the efforts of the various organizations now at work on this problem by calling conferences immediately at Winnipeg, Regina and Edmonton, which are to be attended by representatives of the federal department of agriculture, labor, and the interior, the provincial departments of agriculture, the transportation companies and the farmers and labor organizations. The object of these conferences is to fake jimmediate action to supply the west with the labor required, thereby affording those who have on their national service cards signified their willingnesB to undertake other work for the sUte during' this great crisis, an opportunity to find employment in Increastag food prodlictJon in Canada. . r . f"Occupatlonar Survey - The board approved of the action that had been initiated in connection with the making of an occupational survey, to which reference was made by the prime minister in the house of commons a few da^s ago. ' Through this survey it is proposed to determine the condition 6t employment prior to the outbreak of war, the present conditions and the probable after-war situation in regard to Jabor. This vork will be completed and the information tabulated prior to completing the ,clas-giflegion of the "national service cards. One of the important objects will be to supply any, laftor deficiency . that may now be found totexist in essential industries. "demobilization-The b.oard, after full discussion, has also .undertaken to formulate, plans, with respect to the demobilization of oujr overseas "forces and for their absoriitibn into civil life. It is believed that the information obtained by the parliamentary committee recently appointed,,and hy the. various organizations throughout tlie country; can be systematized and tJtilized to the greatest effect hy the board 1 of national service. " committee* of the "natlonnl service board was referred to. It was stated that that body would shortly be In a position to submit a comploto report on this subject with respect to the inside civil service of Canada. "Local Conferences-It was urged that more frequent meetings of the board were desirable, nnrt in order to overcome the objectfons on the score Of expense, it was decided to inaugurate a policy of separate meetings of the eastern and western directors. "Headquarters' Organization - At the conclusion of the meeting motions were passed expressing appreetstiou of the untiring efforts of the director-general, secretary and headquarters' staff.- On Thursday evening the mem--bers of the board were the guests of i!r. Bennett nt dinner at the Rideau club. The prime minister, the minister to whom the board is directly responsible, was present and briefly addressed them on the important work that had been placed in tUeir hands. He felt confident that their duties would be creditably discharged and expressed his desire to afford the board every assistance in his power to promote the efficiency of the organization. He was highly gratified with the manner in which the work had been carried on in the past."

The information so obtained wiU be classified and the necessary organization created with the aid of existing agencies to, provide suitable occupations for the men as they are returned and de-inobilized. "Local Organization-It was also decided to charge the district directors with the responsibility of organizing 'national service leagues' in iyery cominunity within their respective-districts. These leagues will endeavor to corelate the efforts of all existing organizations having for their objects the more efficient utilization of the ; military, agricultural, industrial and tinancial resources of .-the state. The board also will give its assistance to the ministers of finance and agriculture in carrying on their propaganda for thrift, for war loan purposes and the increase of agricultural and > industrial production. "Women Munition Labor - The whole question: ojt'tlie utilization of woman labor in Canada during � the war was thoroughly discussed. The matter had beeu very carefully Investigated before the>meeting and all available information was placed before the board. Investigations indicate that women ^e now employed in munition plants almost to the full extent possible. There is no necessity at tWs moment for 'patriotic' service on the part of women in these plants. Employment should only be sought by., those who require it for the purpose of supplying themselves or their dependents wittt^ livelihood. "Mobilization for Home Defense- The board:-was-unanimously of the opinion that, having j-egard to the ( changed. conditions . which have resulted'from the breaking off of diplomatics-relations be.tween the I'nited States; and Germany, action should be taken by- the DDinlnion- government to, mobilize a large. army tor home defense' and ' the' -provisions of the Militia act-in that behalf should be made .effective.
