RAILWAY IS NEEDED The Board of Trade has good rea- son for deciding to use their influence with the Canadian Pacific Railway Company to get them to start the aid would suggest that the govern raent appoint a commission, the ma jority to be fanners, to investigate .the matter thoroughly and that th government act on their report. This commission should be coin posed of men fully competent to judgt upon matters of agricultural c-duca tion. The majority should be farm ers. They need not be graduates o an agricultural college. In fact, i there are any graduates at all then ought to be two, one from each kinc of college, for the graduates wouk naturally be prejudiced in favor o their own kind oJ college. Farmers representative of the different branch es of agriculture .should be on the commission, a grain man, a stock man, and a dairyman. On this com mission also should be men verset in educational matters in general. This commission should be sent to visit Various colleges both within and without the universities. Let them study the two systems and theu go out in the country to study the t results by seeing what the graduates are doing both for themselves and for communities in which they live. Having made a thorough investiga- tion they should report to the gov- ernment, who would then be well ad- vised as to the better course in this very important matter.
