Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 12, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAG^ SIX , THE LETMBRipflE,,DAILy) HER Alb When addressing an audience ot tM-inera and townafolk at Red Deer, Mr. Wood said: "I liave two sons. Both ere of military ago. Both have boon''exempted because they orn farmers and their ervlceb are needed as producers. Onr land Is hotter Vulted for cattle raising lhan to the production of wheat. We purpose continuing In the cattle ' raising business, but we also Intend to grow aa much wheal as we can, although wheat la an uncertain crop with us. We also Intend to raise a.s many or more hogs than we hare been growing. Wo will do this bo-cause we are told, on wi�at we fhink is gojBd authority, that our army and our allies are in urgent need ot these commodities, namely, bread and bacon. I It may be that* the returns will not prove so certain or ao great as they would be from the growing of those things to which our land is best ulted,, but we believe that we will be able tO' derive a fair return from them, and we are glad to be permitted to serve In this cause at home on our own farm. Having been exempted from service because they are farmers, my ons feel there is a special duty rest- . Ing on tbem to produce to the limit of their ability those things that will contribute most to the cause for which our soldiers are fighting, and for which they would have to fight kad they not been, exempted. GRIEF Can be expressed best by a monument of fitting design ^nd lettering. We c make monuments fitted both to the size of your plot and the length of your purse. Its lor you to say what kind of memorial you prefer. Lcthbridge Mohunental and Cut Stone Work* R. Needs, Prop. ath Street 8. In view of the high price of labor andvthose commodities which the farmers have to buy, raising hogs at, around 16 cents per pound, may not seora so attractive as selling coarse grains nt present prices, but nevertheless, on the whole it Is highly re-munoratlvo and, ns compared with serving in the trenches at a dollar and ] ton cents a day. It looks mighty good ' to ns. This service Is just as essential to the cause as that being given in the trenches. The question Is, are we going to give the best service we can? 1 know enough about the spirit ot the Alberta farmers to know that,-rfs -soon as they understand the neccssi-Uds of "he case and see clearly their duty, the^' will make good.
