TOO MUCH HURRY WITH LEOlSLATiON The U.F.A.'legiBlation committee and Premier Stewart have during this weiBk, alluded to the danger arising from ill considered legislation. There it certainly too muih half baked legis-iBtidn put.on our statute books. Some teUow gets an idea, that he thinks netds Immediate adoption in order to savie the world; he gets some other fel-Io# to accept it and then he gets it before'a legislature and the first thing we know it is a law. Probably no one has given it an hour's serious consideration. Outwardly it: may look like a good law, but'wheti carefully dis-aected it may be full of faults. legislation should be sifted, and ao^ked and klhorbughiy threshed! out before getting a place on the statute books. We don't want bulky statute books crowded, with crazy-auilt legis-lalion. |Let us have sound legislation; le(iglatipn'tilat''wiir dissec^on. We pajftour legislators to legislate carefully and if they do what they are ^foi; there will be less last-minute, litirriediy~glanced at legisiation. IfilESH AIR IN � 'COLD WEATHER ....
