Well, we should say so. Were he devoting the same brains and energy and good judgment to any other business, he would be paid five times as much. Mr. Wood,' however, is not thinking of money; service to his fellow farmer is his purpose in giving so much of his time to the U. F. A.

I POTASH IN OUR- ...... ALKALI LAKES � Medicine Hat Board of Trade discussed a suggestion that it might be possible to extract potash from the alkali lakes of Southern Alberta. In Nebraska, it was reported? that this was being done with, success. 'jjhe Dominion government, or the Scientific and Research Committee it has appointed, should investigate and ascertain if our alkali lakes can produce potash. If it was proved that they could, it would mean - another great industry for this country. It is too important a possibility to be overlooked. WALL STREET AND GOVERNMENT OWNERSHIP Government owned railways cannot pay, isays the Wall Street Journal. We are not startled at this opinion from such a source. Wlien did any person, or any organization, or newspaper �* connected with Wall Street ever express sympathy with public ownership of anything. Wall street owns the millions and the millionaires, of course, believe in owning everything they can place their hands upon. It has been the business of Wall Street to slam phblic ownership. At that We are not surprised. We would become suspicious if Wall .Street began praising public owneiship. ' Because Wall Street is against government ownership is no proof that government ownership is wrong; rather it is. proof that there is some good in government ownership* gates didn't want him there were other good choices from the extreme south, A. J. H. Dcuahoe, of Foremost, T. .0 King, of Raymond", J. T. North," of Parkland, and Mrs. Freeman of Winnifred. They were all in the running but failed election. It won't make any difference to the interest of the south in the U. F. A.; the organization is too valuable- and too well directed, to be affected by sectional disappointments. However, we have TJ. F. A. problems* all our own down this way and a vice-president from this end of the province would have been a big help in solving them. NEED OF MORE HOUSES IN CITY Lethbridge is facing a serious condition in the: matter of home, accommodation which is proving a detriment to the growth ofthe;city.

WS) -havje mentioned this matter in a casual way on previous occasions, but we .mention it now morel forcibly because we believe that, with spring coming and the building season opening mp, some effort ought to be made on the part of citizens to provide further accommodation for newcomers. If Southern Alberta raises a favorable crop this year there will be an Influx of people to Lethbridge in the next twelve-month that will surpass the addition to the city's population in the past year. We will need them to help carry on the increasing business of this growing centre. It is our duty to provide for them, and in spite of the high cost of building materials we must.do so. We know at the present time of families that-are thinking of moving to Macleod, Calgary or some other point because they cannot-sec ure houses here. That- should make lis stop and think. Perhaps the Board of Trade can suggest something to meet the difficulty. ~ A resolution recommending1, that Orientals be prevented from becoming owners of real estate in Canada has been passed by the .Vernon branch of the Great War Veterans Association.

Sanitarium treatment la the only way to eheok. it and at this- point the doeter took the opporunlty to criticise the govorn-men's choice of the site for the mro-poHod provincial sanitarium, saying that he couldn't see why Kananaskks had ben chosen unless it was feeoause^ it was the least desirable plaoe. In tho doctor's estimation tho only site lor a sanitarium that would serve the' purpose this was intended to serve, would be one that was surrounded by u large tract of farm lend, where the patients could be employed out-of-doors at chicken raising, gardening or other light farm duties, that would not only fit them to. support- themselves, but would be a revenue to the Institution as well. � \ Venereal Diseases .. In dealing with the question of veu-Qi-cal diseases the doctor taffl he proposed to call a spado a spade and that he felt suro his frankness would not be misunderstood. Ten per cent, or the population of the province of Alberta were suffering from these dls:. eases, and there was no legislation that would prevent the spread ot these deadly germs that threatened the sight of the new born babies, even attacked little girls and filled the women'� wards of-the hospitals with serloim surgical cases. One progressive step had been' taken in the free blood pfests which the province would provide in future. In closing Doctor Lincoln urged the women to te"hch tlielr boys and girls the truth and save them front the mistakes past, generations had made in this respect.

A 14 poll tax on every male person in the city over 21 years old and under 60 has been decided upon, by the Toronto board of control in connection with the- tax survey which it is drugs, tobacco and cigars and confec-[*ow making. This tax will yield, it is tionery, and these stores  shall be strictly confined to the sale of the articles mentioned. T. H. Johnson, attorney- general and acting premier, declared in the Manitoba legislature that the provincial government would carry to the estimated.^ $80*000 annually to the city.

Duncan Marshall in ' Toronto the other day announced .that, ar, a result of a conference of � officials at Ottawa, the farm labof problem for the coming year had been solved. No details of the plan were given but' we hope Mr. Marshall is right. However, that, does not nullify the suggestion which'has been" made "that greater efforts should be^put forth to make use of the high school boys of the west to help.out the farm labor scarcity. The principal of the .scuooIb in Victoria states that there are over 1000 boys in that city who woufd' be available under this plan. , It It were carried out to the limit throughout the West the boys could do a grea/t deal in this direction. Something was done ip Alberta a year ago but not half enough. Put the proposition up to the boys and see how they Will accept the responsibility. Jim Weir is just now looked upon as a greater politician than a' farmer. Politicians don't seem to be popular with The U. F. A.-except in making demands for legislation. We wouldn't wonder if Food Controller Hanna did retire. A man would need the patience of Job to fill that job. A blind and a deaf man might get along without much trquble. A uniform minimum salary of Bap tist ministers has been fixed at $1,200. It Is easy enough to fix a salary but it Ts another thing to have it paid.

' "Canada leads the world in production of'wheat per capita," said Dr. C.A. Zavltz at the Western Ontario. Dairy-meg's convention. "Our production is seventy and a half bushel* per, bead of population. Argentina, which ranks next- in _this respect, produces fifty-six and one-third bushels per capita, and the United States forty-five and a third. Canada's exportable surplus of wheat.Is six times thai 61 the Unite* States. . - - The Canadian Society of Civil Engineers, -will be known henceforth as the Engineering Institute of Canada -the change in name having been decided upon at the recent meeting in Montreal. H. H. Vaughan, vice-president and managing director of the Dominion Bridge Company, was. elected president, and T. H. White, Vancouver, M. R. Fairburn, (assistant chief engineer of the C. P. It., Montreal). Prof. H. E. Haultain (of the^ University'of Toronto) and R". P. .Hay-warfl (of the Western Canada Power Company, Vancouver) were elected vice-presidents. Ex-Mayor H. A. Stevenson of London, Ont., is out with a suggestion that devices be installed to extract greise and other materials .fpom dish water. He declares that thousands of dollars can be made in this way and glycerine in large quantities, manufactured. He points out that the British are making a great deal of'money in this way. "An English expert cjame to the aviation camp in Toronto, and by-installing a simple .process is making $800 a month out of dish water," said Dr. Stevenson.- "A similar machine could be installed at Victoria hospital, and an equal amount saved, I am sure." taxes.

And yet, in a "recent address, In London Mr. Zangwlll said: "If it comes to a matter of exchanging, and Belgium were set off against Palestine, I should say without hesitation, 'Restore Belgium to the Belgians and let the Turks re tain Palestine." Judge Lavell, of Kingston, in hearing appeals for exemption from military service, has come to the conclusion that a largo number of farmers hereabouts are greedy and care more for big prices tluvn to. aid in greater .production.-He finds that many hundreds of bugs of potatoes have been lost by being frozen, because the farmers held them in expectation that they would get big prices. Judge Lavell also finds that there are too many cheese factories in his district. Borne farmers have factories that turn out only three or four cheese a day and in these cases the judge has refused exemption to -aiinern' Bona who act as makers. v the wishes of the people be obeyed,'j and tfiat conscription of wealth in the most advanced form, as indicated in the farmers' platform be put into effect." ~ \ Tariff on Machinery Tho numerous resolutions dealing I with the matter of a tariff on farm | machinery, all calling for the removal of that duty, were combined in one resolution prepared by the'executive. The matter was thoroughly threshed out, every, delegate being strongly in favor of the general request, and thej resolution was finally sent back for a second re-draft, to be passed on at a later session. i Labor Saving Devices In addition to machinery, a clause was added covering labor-saving de-, vices 'for the home. Delegate Irwin, of Barons, who spoke to the resolution, said that farmers were being compelled to pay ?5� more on every binder they purchased, slni.b the price of wheat had been act, or practically |8 advance per month. He slammed the implement companies for discharging their employees directly after the outbreak of the'war, through the fear that there would be no demajid for machinery, and now they wanted to make the farmers pay for that mistake, and at-the same time were advertising in the front and back covers of 'every agricultural publication in the land, that they could not make deliveries'. vWe:emi't-get.'.plow shares, so what'rf the use of buying tractors," he linked; "if the  government won't give us what we ask for in this respect, the union government will not stand very long," declared another delegate. The sentiment on this question was extremely strong, and-It was even sug gested that the U.F.A. send a delegation to Ottawa to see that the farmers' wishes were carried out. 8hort Selling of Grain The matter of short selling of grain was another live issuo. C. F. Brown, of the United Grain Growers, explained the Intricate methods of the grain trade, as President *Wodd had declared that the more he had to do with It the" less he knew, until he had arrived at the point where he did not even wish to hear anyone talk about It.
