The Council of Agriculture, said Mr. Mussulman, as a responsible body representing thi3 interests of the farmers, should have first gotten to- gether the officials of the two great farmers'- other inde- pendent experts in grain of Agriculture recognized that the average farmer must have some ad- vance on his wheat to enable him to carry on. through the'year. 'Reaarve Provision One of the most alarming features of the contract, said the speaker, WBB the provision which It made for a re- serve. The contract suggests one per cent, on the gross sale price for the year. This would rapidly mount up into millions of dollars. And to whom would It aveltually belong? To remaining contract holders in good standing. The farmers on whose grain this money was earned and who for one reason or another dropped out be- fore the reserve waa distributed would hare no share in It. A successful pool of this sort would also mean, said Mr. Musselman, the elimination of every elevator company. in Western Canada, which represent-) ed millions of dollars, and would bring abou't the most herculean fight over grain marketing ever seen.v There ware many'other objections to the contract as it had appeared In the press, said Mr. Musselman. He did not wish to shirk any of his re- -Sponqlbility as a member.of .the Coun- cil of Agriculture in connection with and worked out a complete plan that anything it had done In this connec- have feasible'before pub- tion; and he did not wish to appear (Edmonton Journal.) Durum wheat is to be discouraged for use in Alberta, according to H. A. Craig, deputy minister of agriculture, who is. back .from the seed fair con- vention in Winnipeg at which the question was under discussion. In-i created production of this grade of wheat, became of its resisting pow- ers agaiiutMioth drought and rust, haa been recommended In various quart- era, and the eipert evidence ot Prof. Walster, of North Dakota, given at the Winnipeg meeting in order to determine a future policy. So far as Alberta is concerned, it was reported that requests made last yoar for the importation of a supply of seed had bqen off until fuller information could be secured. It was shown from reports of millers and grain dealers that durum wheat, which is a grade used in the manufacture of macaroni, was in disfavor for flour- making purposes, and all that had been raised in this province had been shipped to the United States. In view of uncertain market condi- tions, the possibility rf the embargo being enforced, and the likelihood of Russia becoming a durum wheat ei- not a profitable crop for Alberta to take, up with, FIIII! the department of j agriculture will accordingly advise farmers here against it. WTiere for any reason it is found desirable to grow it, the variety Recommended will be "Kubanka Amber." It in un- derstood that Manitoba will adopt a similar attitude on the durum ques- tion. llshlng anything on the subject. He feared that the farmers had gotten the idea that the pool sug- gested with the sanction of the coun- cil would cure all their Ills. He did not with anyone to think that this contract represented the ripe judg ment of the council which had not seen it; but he was not prepared to say that tho farmers would not have to meet In any other co-operative pool of the same sort the same weaknesses that were to be found in this one. It vis Mr. Muttselman's opinion. that this contract was drawn up by a certain Winnipeg lawyer with au eye solely to determining whether or not he could draw up a contract that would bind the farmers for five years to the pool, whether they were satis- fled or not with its management and whether or not thatunanagement was efficient. Bound Hand and Feet. Mr. Musselman pointed out that in the light of one .attacking the con- tract unnecessarily. It Involved mat- ot the most vital concern to the farmers of the provineo, however, and at- such, should be exhaustively studied by everyone of them betore It wan signed. James director ot the Saskatchewan Co-operativo Elevator Company, Limited, support- ed Mr. Musaelaau'i statement of the need for a cloie ocrntlni ofr the con- tract before''it was signed, and guve some of his experiences with farmers who are clamoring- for "a pool" with- out knowing what the pool implied.

It makes 'no provision whatever for a farmer once in the pool to withdraw from it. And while he is a member of the pool he must deliver all qf the wheat grown for or by him to the pool cor- poration, "as, when and where direct- ed by the corporation." The contract does not say when the farmer will be paid for his wheat. It simply says that he must accept in payment for it the pooled or average price received for all the wheat of hla grade during the twelve months. "I don't think any honest could ask a fanner to sign such a con- porter again, jt was felt that it was I declared Mr. Musselman, ._ as a matter of fact no one is asking! anyone to sign it." It was a very serious tiling for man to tie himeelf up for five years to a hard and fast contract such as this, continued Mr. Mussulman, Whan would the farmer be paid for his grain? The contract was silent on this point. It contained no suggeston of a! cash advance, although the Council i PRELUDE WHEAT Prelude wheat, though, 'very early, is too small a yielcler, shatters badly and produce! weak straw. It should discarded. Huby is superior to it For the northern districts. In the tests at Brandon, Ruby wheat averaged about five or six days earlier matur- ing than Marquis, yielded about three bushels less. .It is equal in milling; valne4 but cannot compete with Mar- quU in regular Marquis territory be- cauie of its low yield. It Is going to be of great value in the northern country, in districts which are sub- ject to early frost.
