Villa's anny. is now besieging the port. Villa is to get il slice of the light money and is expected to make every effort to take Tampico.

Of course their written contract set om that the farm-erg are to deliver.: heels accordins; to ho dirocloh of he. company, in such quantities and at such ihups as the company would direct, "The Magrath and W'ellini; fHruiers shipped their beets to this factory in cai-s, and because they ooukl not gat nion to- unload thcni tor ei^ht cents per ton, the cars collected until they -were all loaded, and (he farmers' wagons loaded at'tlie station. Their beet work shut down, and this is part of the cause ot their beets being frorje" in the ground. Had the fiirmera had the privilege of dmnpiug them in a pile at the railway, they could have gone on and completed their work, but were held up on this account. Seeing that something must be done, they ail tunied out .and went to the factory at Raymond, and unloaded he cars. Then oniy'^one or two of the cars would come hack, kei^ping them tied up the :whole fall. Hence the beet business was a failure to the^farmer, and not because they could not raise the beets profitaMy, hut because the work was so hroken into that In some cases a large portion of their crop would be frozen In the ground, "As to the labor (lueHlion, there was no difficulty when the farmers were supporting -the factory, Thei Blood and Peigan Indians from Montana would come over by the huu-i dreds, both at the thinning and harvest times, and let the merchants say il! our town 'was helped by it. Consult Mr. E, P. Ellison's talk iu the Jegislature of Alherta when he appeared before th^i body, asking for s bounty, when he'got $60,000, and he said the, Indians ^veie good laborers-Mr. Ellison held out to the government that it was the same here as in 'Utah, in the early history of the sugar beet indus.try, and that it was only a 'matter of a'littie'time when he industry would be permanent. He never intimated that" the labor queslon would in any 'way hamper the busln'ess, - "But a change, pame over things. The company, as Mr, Bllison said, did' not care whether the people raised any beets or not. They brought in Chinas menj.' a .gobd^iimiidy; English families^ .laps' and B^lllanB, and after all they finJilly' appealed, io the farmers.

Yours verv truly. A PARMER. School Board May Close Dowri Three Important Departments CONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE Mr, Wallace wanted to know -what saving � couldi have been made if - the clasKos had! not been started. Mr. Davidson : "That is not the question. They have been started. We cannot afford them, ^owwhat are we going to do to stop the expenditure. There are three main questions with which we must deal. They are : the manual training, pre-vocational,-�and the matter of the superintendent.'-' ...... � � -� Mr. Wallace too.!: the stand that the nianual training school could not be closed vviWiotit the domestic science being discontinued also, as the boys woiild be idle while the girls were attending �their domestic science classes. "You Can't close one "Without the other," he said. "Did you ever hear of tliem starting a household class -without starts ing a manual training class ?" as'icd Mr. Davidson.

See" HOW In the "Matter" Key," the most sensational serial drama ever conceived, at the Tonight Tonight The Fifth Instailment Ma^t^r Key Mr, Davidson, "why'do ^y-oii place obstacles � in  the - way ?" - He'thought there were lots'of-things the boys needed that'the girls didn't need, and this instnictic-a- tould' be 'giyen them by the grade - teachers, , -while the girls atten-aed the dom'estlc - science class. .. Mr. Higlnbotharn-said-that he was strongly in favor of teaching the trades, and the girls how to-cook and sew. Mr. Davidson: "Everyone will admit that these things are all- right when we have the money. It we get a good crop this year; and it the war stopped tomorrow, it wilt still take some time to get back -to-where we were when these things were started. If we were confronted with the fact that we had- to cloSe some department down, ;Whiclt one woulttvit^^he'!';'; Mr. HIginbtJtham thought'^flgffciii| der'garten was' the first. It ^'onld be" joined with the primary .work and two teachers dispensed wi'Eh. � � "What would you curtail next ?" a.sked Mr. Davidson. "W-ell, I suppose we would next have to. consider the manual training ami- the' domestic science," replied 'AIr..,Higinbotham, but he added ttoat the situation would have to be'prctty desperate. Mr. McKillop took the' ^amo stand as he took so-nie time ago. "I maintained," he said, "that., the manual training school-would haw to-be closed down if conditions did not improve, and they have not. Mr. Hamilton went on to explain some technicalities, and w^as immediately sat upon by Mr, Da.wdson,. "We cannot expect, much help .from-the superintendent, the secretary-treasurer, or some others," said he. "They cannot see anything hut obstacles in the way. They justify everything, and arc not trying to help us save. They look at everything from their own point of vjew. not from ours. I don't know - what  the manual training school has cost in previous years, an-d 1 don't think anyone else iloes. I don't know what equipment we have, htit the first thing 1 should recommend would he a sale- of lunk,' or the turning over of some of it to the bank as .security for a-loan-.
