A special meeting of the Bow Island board of ':rado was held in the I.O.O. F. hall on Wednesday evening. Because of the seriousness of the crop prospects In this district it was decided that the board of trade get into immediate communicaticn with Food Controller J. D. McGregor of Regina and endeavor to have the proper precautions taken to assure farmers that sufficient wheat will be left in the country for the seeding neede of the farmers next spring. The elevators at this point have shipped out every available bushel and many of the farmers sold all their surplus in the early spring. It is absolutely useless to camouflage crop conditions in this vicinity-the 191S crop is practically a total failure. In fact if rain is not forthcoming at an early date all hopes ot harvesting even green feed will be sharered. It is therefore not only expedient but essential that immediate steps be taken to retain sufficient grain in Western Canada for the requirements ot the anticipated acreage to be sown neit spring.
