Ottawa, Jan. 3.-The question of government control and operation of packing houses has not up to the present time been considered by the cabinet council. A statement to this effect was tnade today by a prominent member of 'the cabinet, who however, declined to express an opinion as to whether or not any action is likely to be taken in the near future. No action of a drastic character is likely to be taken by the government in regard to the control of packing or other matters until after Sir Robert Borden s return to the capita] about the middle of next week. Then it will be possible to have a practically full attendance of ministers. The ony absentees will be Sir George Foster who will not be able to resume his duties for some weeks, and, Hon. C. J. tioberty, minister of justice, who will not return to Ottawa until after the middle of the month. Hon. J. A. Calder, minister of immigration, and Hon. T. A. ('rerar, minister of agriculture, who have not been in Ottawa since election clay, expected to arrive tomorrow. It is considered altogether probable that the government's first consideration will be given to policies emanating from the departments presided over by these two ministers as they are more intimately connected with the important and pressing problems arising from the need of increased production, and Incidentally, an augmentation of the number of people on the land. The soldiers'* settlement board, whose duty it will be to assist men who have returned from overseas to get a start at farm workt will, It is believed, ^'e appointed before the end of the month.

Jan. 3.- (By the Canadian Overseas correspondent).-The New Year finds the Canadians back in the old familiar positions before Lens. Indt�otl ihuy have been here ever since the Pa.sachenriaeh; battles, but it is only now that 'the censor permits mention of their location. thpy wore on the Somme last year or in the salient six weeks ago. The health or ail ranks is reported good, 'i he physique and training of the reln-fi;) cements has given much satisfaction. The Canadian corps, which since its formation has never been out of the j front line, remains there still, but it is Canada in France has i.evor wolconi- '� having comparative rest.

Board 274-214 going to keep open. , Still others sa-id they would do whatever their competitors in the same line of business did. All -agreed that the factory act as it stands is a discriminatory piece of legislation in that it allowed some merchants to keep open on Saturday evenings while it forded the*-'larger stor�fe with large staffs ';vto ' close. They also kicked a gainst, towns under 6000 population being left:without the purview of the act Some Favor Entlr/ejt Closing . Some'% those pres^nt;fayorod the entire closing of all retail stores, If possible, until the legislature meets in February. This would give the merchants an opportunity to test public opinion, and the general belief Is that there will be such criticism of the act , as it affects Saturday night closing ' that the legislature w.ould be quite willing to bring down* admmendniGnt. "The city of LeUibri^^e^dB'-pn the country trade so much'for its business that we are in reality only a country town," declared one merchant, "and I know the farmers wiU be very much against the operation of the aot to force the stores here to close Saturday evenings at six o'clock. You would only'have to look down the business streets on a Saturday evening in summer know tha^-Lethbridge never had a better adv|rtiBement than its motor packed streets on Saturday evenings last summer. To close the. stores'at six on Saturday would be a crime under the circumstances," 'Hat Feels Same Way. fc The Herald Understands that Medicine Hat feels very mttch the � same way and a delegation from Lethbridge consisting of Messrs* Bawden and Williamson will vipitthat city to discuss the whole proposition with the merchants there with a view to united action by the two cities in securing amendments: to the act at the next session. .t * 1 1 In an interviewC'at Calgary, Deputy Attorney GeueraV'Drownihg said: "The act in its entirety, is. to be j&nforced, from this date. andianyiektensiQhs ; of night or day shift Mir only fie:}given in accordance with tlieVaqtJor special reasons of trade oiyhich siiek to lay quick anfl effective sei^e to these pliable'and, fatal tendencies of life the speaker said Wat tlie young womanhood of our day was subject to graver besetments than was our young manhood, and Condemned in the strongest fashion those who would, take- harmful advantage of any qf these weaknesses. , v v'^he meetings thus fair.have btfeh fraught; wiWg&od resuXC'iinit,$re stead; Jl#ltr6WinV in lntere&; ana^umbers?

RED CROSS NOTES Did ,it ever occur to you that we- all who are helping In the Red Cross �work-are In a race with death ? Every time the Red Cross helps to save the life of a wounded soldier at the front it saves two men, tho mail who was wounded and the man who would have to take hlB place. Isn't it easy for all of us to get wonderfully enthused with the knowledge that the work: we do meanB the actual saving of lives? Surely none of us need more of a spur than tirfs. Every piece of work turned out by Lethbridge women makes other women's burtons easier to bear. We must have more of this work and more workers if hospitals are kept supplied in Europe, ambulances kept running and nurses provided. Are you doing your part? i�uts.
