People are at- tracted to Alberta, not so much by tho climate, but rather by the possibilities here. The premier said In part that his government had always stood for ex- tended education. We have a good system In this province, and were for- tunate in having such a man as Dr. Tory at its head. The growth ot the University of Alberta was a source of pride to the whole province.

The people had spoken. Tho mandate was positive. It was now up to the and the government Intended to carry out the wishes of the to vigorously enforce tho Liquor Act and so far as It is humanly possible to make Alberta "bone dry."

He expressed great pleasure at Raymond's good fortune in having such an excellent institu- tion, and he pledged his personal sup- port to it. It waa full of possibili- ties. Closing he hoped the premier would make some statement on the question of provincial prohibition be- fore the meeting closed. He wanted wanted to see Alberta "bone dry." School Supt. Speaks Supt. Myers, of the provincial schools of agriculture, said that the attendance at the local school dis- pelled any fears in his estimation as to the success of the school. He re- called the struggles ttie "Gaelph A. C. encountered in its fight for recogni- tion. Guelph was the pioneer agri- cultural school of Canada. Our Al- berta schools were popular from the start. Alberta, he said, had now eiceed- ed all of her sister provinces in the number of young men and women pursuing agricultural education. "Our ideal is to make real farmers and stockmen of our boys, and real house- wives of our girls. To attain this end, I would nrge the first year students to take the second year work. Don't get married before you do so, boys and girls. You'll he the better equipped for the battle of life. We hope to see 75 per cent, of the stu- dents back next said Mr. Myers. Hon. A. J. MeUegii Hon. "Archie" McLean, minister of public works, merely expressed his pleasure at tho present record ot the Raymond school and of Its future. He hoped the government would he forc- ed to enlarge the plant ncit year. Ray Knight Ray Knight, who played an Import- ant part In securing tho school at Raymond, wished to see Raymond the educational centre of Southern Alberta. It could be, made so. 7ie was a (Inn believer iii education, al- though he had had little of it him- self. Education today was absolutely essential. "I like said Mr. Knight, have tried to leave it several times you know. In fact, they once gave me a hig farewell party here hut I was back In Alberta before they got the dishes washed." Mr. Knight remarked encouragingly that finan- cial conditions here were much bet- ter than thoso across the line. Mo believed the present decline would Improve bolero mai.y months, of the citizens. Without thla help the government was powerless to suppress the liquor traffic. But the government intended to do its duty, to keep its pledge, and at the forth- coming session of the house the de- tails ot the plan of the cabinet will he brought down. Mr. Marshall Tha address of the minister ol agri- culture was an enlightening one. He went into the present day problems confronting the farmer and stockmen of the West. These were trying days, but he saw a better era coming before many months. To meet the new con- ditions the farmers at Alberta must abandon exclusive wheat farming and go hack'to mixed farming. Stock breeding was particularly stressed by the minister who pronounced it thij basis of our agricultural prosperity. He cited Scotland as an example of what a country can become if its men on the land have Ideals in the breeding of high grade stock. He felt that Alberta was laying a proper foundation in giving its boys the ad- vantage of an agricultural education. said that he believed that the British embargo would he removed, this year. England did not care for chilled beef, but she was vnry fond of fresh beef. We must, therefore, get our cattle to Liverpool alive. Our bacon commands from 16 to 25 cents more per pound on the British'mar- ket than the American product. This was because we raise better hogs. It was the purpose of the government also to open up a foreign market for our eggs and butter. "We aim to make AJberta eggs .and Alberta hatter the best on the British mar- ket, and we can do declared th9 minister. U.S. Embargo It was the opinion of the speaker that the threatened U.S. embargo would never become law. The U'.S. senate and the Canadian house would soon in session, when he believed an arrangement would he mado favor- able to both countries. The U.SXwas too shrewd td discrimin- ate against a customer as good and as close as Canada. Closing, Mr. Marshall denounced the land craze that had swept the farmers off their feet and made many of them hopelessly involved. They must get this out of their systemo, he said, and replace it with a keen and intelligent policy of diversified farm- Ing. We must get down to smaller and better farms.
