Bretnerhavett THfe Undaimted OF TRADE FTERM me FACTORY jThat Uothbridge wiir do its. share ''t^ard aiding in obtaining a guarantee' of ar sufficient supply of sugar b'e'Sts to warrant the Knight Sugar Company in remaining in Southern dilberta, was strongly evidenced at.a ineetiCti of the Board of Trade council'hteld on Thursday. Messrs. W. H. I?Birfleld, (Jso. W. Green, S. S. Dun-; hsan, W." Lloyd and Rev. Father Min-ww^gan were .delegated as a committee to "lay plans for a meetlngat which all the farmers in the immediate district -will Ibe asked to attend, and after the technical points hare been explained by represtntatives of the sugar beet industry, a canvass ulll be made of the entire district, for the purpose of ascertaining exactly what acreage can be placed in beets in the spring. It was reported at this meeting that -the provincial jail farm had promised to raise 50 acres, and Mr. Fairfield was of tfiff" opinion that practically every farmer m the irrigated section The battle at Cuxhtiven on Christmas Day was the most spectacular performance as yet recorded in the war. The British seairtanes were there, being convoyed to the point of attack by ships, and then dropped into the water. There were fast oil-burning cruisers, only recently launched,. submarines and destroyers. An anti-lguns. air craft gnn, which helped to drive off the Zeppelins Is shown.

"It is a big mistake," said Mr. Fairfield, "to b.x-pect every fanner to raise from five to ten acres. If each would raise one acre, it would be worth more than five or ten, because when the time comes for thinning, the man with ten acres is confronted with a labor problem, audi be gets, discouraged and lets the whole thing go, whereas if ht had only one acre, he could successfully cultivate, thin and handle it, and the returns would Be double." The question of labor during the thinning and topping seasons, was considered of the utmost importance, and was regarded as one" of the serious drawbacks to the industry here. The placing of miners in the beet fields, or of Inducing them to grow beets themselves was discussed, and it is likely, that some steps will be taken along these lines. Geo. MacKay thought that, as the thinning season commenced after school let out In the spring, tliere would bei .plenty of older boys who would be glad of an opportunity to make a dollar to two a day la the beat fields. The question of prison iB/bor was also "brought up, but did not meet with the approval of the majority of the membem. G�o. W.
