CORN THE STAPLE FOOD Cartier found the^Indians at Hochdaga (MoBtieal)'eating com in 153a If the secret of making corn palatable, appetizing and delicious had been known in those days, potatoes would not have become a staple food, because corn is four and a half times more nourishing than potatoes. For twelve years the Battle Creek Toasted , Com Flake Co. Lradon. Ont, has been making corn a delectable and nutritious food, more economical in actual food value than cooked oatmeal, beefsteak, eggs, milk, chicken, and many other foods.

Issues a Statement As To The Proposal F611owing-^ . Conferences bltawHi Feb. 16.-^Tho government lias Issued the following stateniont'fe-gnrding the many proiwsals and do-mand.s that during rocont ^months have been tnado on it to tho olCtict that alien labor and allon enemies rt^stdont in Canada .should bo conscriiitod for nBrlculturo at\d Indvistrlal-purposes or tliat thoy should bo compelled to work �for soldiers' pay: . . . "At recent conterancas'held In Jan-unrymt Ottawa with nBrlculturaVj-epi'e-sentattves of the proylnclnl goyorn.-ments and of organized labor i-onsid-erablo attention was directed to the Bdvlaablllty of measures whoroby persons of enemy nationality should be subjected to some form "of conscription in order to relieve labor conditions. Tho matter was discussed from every standpoint and tho conehislpn was reached that It would be inadvisable and In a very large measure Impracticable to carry into effect any such system of compulsion of labor. Perfectly Clear Tho attitude of organized labor was made perfectly clear; namely, unqualified opposition to any proposals for industrial conscription of either aliens or British citizens. They maintained that any attempt to conscript alien enemies with a view to relieving e.xlstlug labor comlitlous would but intensify the situation and make more difficult the problem now confronting the nation. They pointed out in Great Britain whore tho labor problem is much more serious than here, the authorities have retr.nined from any such action, mainly on account of the international complications that might arise therefrom and also because of the belief that compulsion for industrial purposes is unwise and undemocratic, "If it is impracticable at present to adopt a special policy of compulsory service toward alien enemies, It is obvious that there w^ould be even greater difficulty in discriminating against other aliens in Canada in respect of their employment in industry; aud til-' government under e.xisting circum-stat ces deems it unwise to embark upon such a policy. Should Be No Idlers. "Tho imperative tind pressing needs of the country urgently demand that there shall be no Idlers In ^Canada during the remainder of the war. Holy writ dsclares that it a man will not wQik neither shall ha eat. t Those who deliberately and wantonly obstruol the national purpose by subordinating everything to Indolent .self-enjoyment and .selfish indulgence may confidently tntlclpatc that the avitb.rUy vested in the government and partjament will be used for compelling "them to take part which every true citizen should freely and voluntarily firfflll. But the exercise of such power must be of general application." eiGE FOR INTREAL Montreal, Feb. 16.-A series of economies and re-adjustments whereby the city of Montreal would have'more than a million dollars annually is one of the outstanding features of the repovt to tlie city council by the New York bureau of municipal research which was released for publication.
