THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR The centre o� interest in peace negotiations has for the present shifted from Brest-LHovsk where the Germans are endeavoring to make peace with the Bolsheviki, to Germany itself where internal strife is rampant at the present time over differences in peace terms and foreign policy. Chancellor Von Hertltng may resign at any time, but the main attack of the militarists Is being made against Von Kuehlmann, the foreign secretary for his^moderate policy of peace terms, in much the same manner as the attack was made against ex-Chancellor Von Bethmann-HoUweg. The present Indications are a victory for the militarists. In the meantime the German troops, rather than be transferred from an inactive front in Russia to an active front in Prance, are revolting and entrenching themselves on the Russian front against their own leaders. On the war fronts there i3 little activity. Operations are confined chiefly to raids. __\ GOVERNMENT SHOULD HELP TRAIN TRACTOR OPERATORS Some time ago the Herald urged that tne provincial government Agricultural high schools provide a short practical winter course in traction-, eering in order to enable farmers to fit themselves to operate their own small farm tractors. The need for such a course as the Herald suggests la evidenced by the large attendance at the I.H.C. school now in session here for farmers who have bought that company's tractors, and by tbe fact that next month another school will be held. The government however, could cover a wider field, and its agricultural high schools are already fairly well equipped to take up this work. The number of farm tractors that will be in use in Southern Alberta this year will be far in excess of any pa3t year, and the training ot-men to operate them is an important matter. DONT PROTEST BUT SACRIFICE There are people who clamor for laws for everybody elgo but themselves. They want other people heavily taxed but they protest .against heavy taxation upon themselves. They criticize governments if they consider they are extravagant or wasteful, hut they refuse to practice economy as individuals. They believe in drastic war measures as long as these measures affect other people and not themselves. In thi6 connection we find people protesting against the "dry bone" liquor legislation, though they have been denouncing waste and urging the need of conservation of food. So it is with the food regulations. When these regulations affect this type of individual they protest and demand that something else be conserved that will affect somebody else but not themselves. And so it goes, and will continue to go, as long as government regulations of food and prices are demanded by existing conditions. In this connection we are prompted to quote a recent article on food conservation from the New York Outlook as it meets the clamor of the type of citizen, we mention: There are some who cannot see the connection between a wheatless or a meatless day in San Diego or Albany and the winning of the war. What difference, they ask, will one steak or one loat of bread make to England or the soldiers of France? Perhaps these doubters of, the value of personal sacrifice will remember from thei/ childhood days a little verse which describes the manner in which certain drops of water and certain grains of sand contributed to the construction of the earth and the seven eeas. That nursery jingle contains wholesome truths directly applicable to the present situation. Just as the Liberty loans are made up of the pennies and the. climes and the dollars of millions of citizens, so is the food reserve of the United States and our allies dependent upon the breakfasts, dinners, and suppers of every citizen of the United States. There is Just so much food in the country. There are just so many people to eat this food. Wiiat these peo- ple do not eat can be exported. What we do not export we can eat. The. sum total of these two- amounts is a | fixed quantity. Either of the two. factors which make up this total can, be Increased only at the expense in the other. | The food administration states frankly that we have exported the whole of the surplus of the wheat from this last year's harvest, utter reserving to ourselves an amount sufficient for our normal consumption of seed and flour until the next harvest, and that therefore the amount of wheat flour flint the Vntted States can contribute to mix with the w:ir broad of our allies during the present winter will be simply the amount bv which our people reduce their consumption day by day and month by month. Every loaf of bread eaten in this .country means one less loaf for our soldiers and our allies. Today the food administration reports that oar allies are asking for 25 per cent, mora meat and fats than we can stnd abroad without trenching on our own supply if we continue our preseat rate of consumption. If the John Smiths and the Mrs. John SmithB and the little John Smiths of the United States eat 25 per cent, less meats and fats from now on, our allies and our troops can be supplied without hardships. If not, our soldiers and our allies will go hungry. We have never seen j, direct personal obligation to self-sacrifice stated in clearer and more mathematical terms. It is as plain as 2x2-t. The case for food conservation could not be put better and yet some people either cannot see or don't want to see (he reason for conservation. In this war sacrifices must be common to all of us, if the war is to be won. The'soldiera cannot be clothed, and equipped if we haven't the money to provide the clothing and equipment. The demand is so great that heavy taxation must be imposed to raise the money and wealth must make sacrifices. Then the men must be fed, for if they didn't get food they couldn't fight and the war would be lost. The food supply of the world is short very, very short, but there are still the mouths to feed. Some nations, those where the war is actually raging, are producing very little. The rest of the world must supply them. When the supply is short, the feeding must be systematized and so we have food conservation. Those of us here must sacrifice luxuries, must give up meat for a day or two days, must drink less milk or eat things we don't like, in order that our soldiers may have food and our allies shall not starve.. Food conservation is really a fight against starvation. It means sacrifice, but it is only a sacrifice of appetite, and that is nothing compared with the sacrifice our soldiers are asked to make. Canada hat a certain amount of wheat and flour available for export, but it is not nearly sufficient to meet the requirements of Britain and the allies. She can only increase the supply by saving and substitution, it is not a case of saving by tons or hundredweights; it is a case of saving by pounds and ounces. The Winnipeg Free Press discussing the situation very well says, that it is not the business of the rich, or big corporations or institutions: it is the plain every day duty of the ordinary-housewife and the wan on the street. N'o crust of bread, no spoonful of flour should be wasted. Waste means food eaten when it is not needed, just as much, as it means food thrown away. The Free Press goes further and declare* that "celebrations in the form of public banquets and suppers should cease entirely and at once. Canadian men and women should learn to eat to live and drop forever the criminal practice of living to eat. The holding of suppers and sales of homemade foods to raise money for patriotic purposes should cease; it is no longer patriotic but absolutely the reverse." The people whom such regulations would affect may murmur "nonsense," but it is the cold truth. It ia better to sacrifice now than to face starvation later. We might as well realize the seriousness of the situation. ^PICKED UP IN �* PASSING I OR THE BUSY MAN The export of tungsten from Canada has been placed under license. ; U John Webster, ex-M.1'..

This must come pretty near being;a record. Our representative was slammed twice in one day this week-he was refused admittance both by the church and the police.
