Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - February 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 16.1918 THE LF/l'IIJ?!i/f)r;� DAILY HERALD page nini Problems of the Organized Farmers Homo Nuts to Crack by the U. I00. It occurs to the writer could perform the functions that are required with much more efficiency. Such an organization should have provisions for affiliating with all of the locals whose natural trading point is Letlibridge. This could be done by making tho President and Secretary of the outlying locals affiliated members of the central local so that if these outlying locals desired to lake advantage. ()f tho facilities of the central Lethbrldge IT. F. A. they would always be in a position to do so. It occurs to the writer that the suggestion is worthy of consideration and that the farmers of tho community should take it under advisement and if thought favorabb* of, it should take steps in this direction. A meeting might be called of the members of the members of the local U. V. A.'s concerned and of all other farmers within a radius of say 15 miles of Letlibridge. Such a meeting would not be complete however, unless President H. W. Wood was present, and the writer is quite sure that arrangements can be made to have him present for such an occasion. PRAISE FOR LOCAL Harvey ?iven (irc;tt Roost l$y W. T. Itilch in His Lecture ELECTED CHAIRMAN Toronto, Feb. 15.-When the standing orders committee of the legislature met for organization this morning, Hon. Dr. Preston was elected chairman in succession to Major J. I. Hartt. .1. W. Fleming, clerk of the Manitoba legislature, and ex-mayor of Brandon, will be the first chairman of the civil service commission for the province at a salary of $G,000 a year. In preparation of wool Tor market Canada and America are far behind Iho countries soutli of the equator, where Hi is process lias been reduced to a science. In fact the sheepmen of this continent, are more crude in their methods than are tho Turks. This statement was made to the local woo! growers at this morning's session of W. T. Hitch's short course school in scientific wool growing and marketing. Tho number present is not yet. up to that desired, anil the sheepmen who are missing the lei lures will find that they have missel something really worth while, Preparation of Wool Tills morning .Mr. Hitch loiil of the i preparation of the wool for market, | dealing with the classification, and the j improvement of the wool by the erection of modern shearing sheds. The I Australian shed lias been introduced by him into the 1,'uited States and more are being built this year than ever before because the growers are finding that they are benefitting by tlie receipt of more money for their wool. Wli'-n Air. Hitch eanie to America to help improve tho wool and build up the market, conditions, the buyers were told that American wool would be put on the same basis as tho Australian wool and they could buy it with tlie same degree of confidence. However the buyers wanted some guarantee and assurance that the wool would be as represented by the growers. When Mr. Hitch had been in Letlibridge before, several years ago, he had mentioned tho possibilities of uniform classing and the setting of a fixed standard, and Mr. Harvey had suggested that the association provide a seal which, when it appeared on bales of wool, would assure the buyers that the product was as represented. Nothing has been done hero in that regard as yet, but Mr. Hitch stated that that Letlibridge suggestion had been introduced into the United States and has saved tho woo! situation there, for the growers in the big American Wool Improvement association have adopted an association seal and every bale of wool marketed under that seal is now guaranteed to be as represented. The result is that the manufacturers will accept it on those grounds and have greater confidence in the wool growers than ever before', to tho mutual maiiufac.uiri-i> Praise- Mr. Hitch a pies of wool i Ro-nrieys an>: his belief lii.-n c.i- would Inl; carefully, v. ! -]>roi\w(! ;i I � strain that v. being bred on Much of tie with diseii: ' plants which prints.

A tractor must dig its toes in. That Is the wheels of a tractor must grip the ground without slipping when pulling a heavy load. Traction may be obtained by two methods, by weight or by the lever and falcrom principal. Railroad engines secure their traction by weight. They are built so heavy that the drive wheels will not spin on the rails when pulling a train of cars. Here-to-fore, tractors have been built on the same theory of obtaining traction- through the addition of weight. THE NILSON HAS SOLVED THE TRACTION PROBLEM by the LEVER and FALCRUM principal with its PATENTED LEVER HITCH which means automatic traction by PULL instead of by WEIGHT. Investigation Proves the Nilson is built on the right principal with the right power at the right price. It is not built down to a price, but up to a standard. PLACE YOUR TRACTOR ORDER EARLY because the tractor demand is heavy and the railroads are swamped with freight making deliveries slow. W. F.
