Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 16, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta MTURDAY, FEBRUARY 16. 1918 THE" LETlUJRIDGi^ DAILY HERALD PAGE NINl FVoWbns of the Organizj^d Farmers Somo Nuts to Crflok by the U. F. A.,' by S. S. Dunbam, ex VlcerPreBldont, The writer contoraplatoa mnklng Bomo BUggostl'ons to tho farmers In aorlea ol articloa under tbo abovo hoiidlns. ThoHo BUggoatlons will involve matters ot Interest that have coiuo to hiB observation durlnB the pdHod that ho bAd boon officially con-ndcted with tho U. F. A., but Involving matterd that by roasou of hts official connection under tho policy of the organliatlon It was not within his province to discuss in the public press. As a private member of tho organization, however, ho feels that ho can do tho orgnnizatlpn a service by calling tho attention-of the membors to certain changes that might bo mado for tho benefit oi: tho organization as a whole. ', �  In the District This letter is addressed to tho farmers surrounding Lothbrldgo whoso natural trading contro . Is Lothbrldgo. The writer has been vitally interested in perfecting tho organ izatipn of locals within this vicinity, but we have labored under peculiar difficulties. Tho .organizations at Crystal LaUo, Wilson Siding and West Lethbrldge particularly have been maintained under groat difficulties. The natural centre tor tho mombora of those locals Is this city. It is here that they; come to do their business, and It Is her^ that thoy moot of tenor than they do In tho respective localities. Tho needs of all of thcBO localities, commercially and oUiorwIse, are i>rdctlcally tho samo. WOOL EXPERT HAS PRAISE FOR LOCAL SHEEP BREEDER GIRIS! HAVE WAVY, IHIGR, GLOSSY HAIR 8ave Veur Hair! Double Its Beauty In "a Few Moments-Try ThIsI It you care for heavy hair, that glistens with leauty and is radiant with life; has an Incomparable softness and is fluffy and lustrous, try Dandorine.' ; Just cn& application doubles the beauty of your hair, besides it immediately dissolves every particle of dand-ruff; ypu cannot have nice, heavy, liealthy hair K you have dandruff. This destructive scurf robs the hair of Its lustre. Its strength and its very life, �nd If not overcome it produces a �feverishness and Itching of the scalp; ,tho hair roots famish, loosen and die; ithen the hair falls out fast. It your hair has boon neglected and Is thin," fadfed,' dry, scraggy or too oily, got a araall bottle of Knowlton's Dahrterine at any drug store or toilet counter for a fbw cents; apply a llttio as directed and ten minutes after you �will say this was the best Investment you ever made.

If e,ventuj�lly-why nof: now?-Advert. Central Secretary Tho question has recently arisen to tho writer IE the plan that we aro now attempting of local units is not tun-damontally wrong. Would it not bo better to have one cenlrdl organization at Lethbrldge with a secretary with oftico facilities at Lothbrldgo? And could not the problems of collec-tlvo cooperative'buying of tho things that need to be brought that way, and of the sGlling of tho products of tho mumbcrH, ho much more efficiently handled in this way, attempting to handle thoa^ problems in tho Roparate locals? Nothing should bo done to mitigate against the local organization If It Is serving a useful purpose, but a locol U. P. A. at the City of Lethbrldge, sucli as I have suggested, with a memberahip, not of 40 or 50 as is now tho case with the local units, but with a membership of 1400 or'BOO. It occurs to the writer could perform thei. functions that aro required with much more efficiency. Such an organization should have provisions for affiliating With all of tho locals whose natural trading point is Lethbrldge. This co'uld be done by making the President and Secretary of the outlying locals affiliated members of the central local', so that if those outlying locals desired to take advantage of tho facilities of the central Lethbrldge U. 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- the community should take It under advisement and it thought favorably of, It should take steps In this direction. A meeting might be called of tho members of the members of the local U. P. A.'a concerned and of all other farmers within a radius of say 15 miles of Loth-bridge. Siich 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. R. C. Hiirvcy Given Great Boost By W. T. Ritch in His Lecture ELECTBD 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. ,T. W. Fl'emlng. clerk of the Manitoba legislature, and ex-mayor of Brandon, will be the first chairman of the civil service commission for the prorlnce ata salary of IMOO a year. In ijroparatlon of wool for market Canada and America are far behind tho countries south of tho equator, whore this process has boon reduced to a science. In fact tho shoepmenof this continent arc more crudo In their methods than are tho Turks. This statement was made to the local wool growers at this morning's session oC W. T. Hitch's short course school In scientific .wool growing and'marketlng. Tho number present is not yet up to that desired, and the shenpmon who aro missing the lectures will find that thoy liavo missed something really worth while, Preparation of Wool This morning Mr. Ritch told of tho preparation of tho wool for market, dealing with the classification, and the improvement of the wool by the erection of modern shearing sheds. Tho Australian shod has been introduced by him Into tho United States and mdrc are being built this yoar than over before because the growers aro finding that thoy are benefitting by tho receipt of more money for their wool. When Mr. Ritch came to America to help improve tho wool and build up the market condltionti, the buyers were told that American wool would be put on the samo basis as the Australian wool and they could buy it with the same degree of confidence. However tho buyers wanted some guarantee and assurance that tho wool would bo as represented by the growers. When Mr. Ritch had been In Lethbrldgo before, several years ago, he liad 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 pt wool, would assure the buyers that the product was as represented. Nothing has been done here in that regard as yet, but Mr. Ritch stated that that Lethbrldge suggestion had been Introduced into the United States and has saved tho wool sltua-yon there, for the growers in tho 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 oa those grounds and have greater confidence In the wool growers than ever before^ to the mutual bnnotit ot growers and manufacturers. Praise For Mr. Harvey Mr. Uilcli iilno produced some snm-plea of wool liiUcn from Mr. Harvey's Rornneys nnd (losH-ljroda and declared his belief tliiif if ilm Lothbrldgo grower would folliiw Diit Ills experiment carefully, wltliln kovou years he would produce a ( i wlili a Ilomnoy strain that woiiM cxrM anything now being bred un \ hi: American continent. Much ot Ilm ininnlng was taken up with discuKHicin ot modern shearing plants which wimi; Dliiatraled by blue prints. In Uw.'M'. hIilmIs tho ahcnp are all wrangled liy ilio proper distribution ot the llKlit, the sheep aro properly awoated luldinp; about 3-4 ot a pound to the wi'inht ot the fleece, and tho woo] la tali'ill oft with power ahoara insteud t,t the old hand shears BO that In every way money is added to the value ol llio wool. Bosidea the sheep comn from the pens in better condition. Mr. Ititcli stated that ho believed two or three ot those modern sheds, would lie hunt in Southor'n Alberta thia ynnr. At the aftornnnn sCHsion Mr. Uitch will discuss the iiuuketing of wool by auction.
