It waa not necesaary for tho oxe-cutve to pase any resolution that could be interpreted as endorsing or affirming the action ot tho govern ment in making the order. Thoro are many actions of tho government that we approve of, but we do not find It necessary to officially do so, and by the interpretation that was put upon the resolution in quostlon and the use that the govomment olUcials and certain interests made of It, it created mnoh dissatisfaction, not only among our own membership, but among our brethern in the oaetern provinces. All of this should have been avoided. If the Order Cancelling exemptions was unjustified or if its result was the material decrease in production and the imposition of undue hardship on many of the persons concerned, it was eminently proper that the executive should honestly and firmly present these phaees ot the situation to the government, and ask for such modification of the order as would be necessary and let the responsibility rest where it belonged upon the government. This, we think, is as far aa would have been expedient to do, but while this is the case, our main purpose in WTlting this letter, ie not to criticize oar executive, but to call attention of the membership that the executive are Just men like we are and apt to make errors which they do not intend. There is no question but what they felt that they were doing the right thing in the action that they took. It was a'Strenuous time and the danger is not yet past, at the time the awful fear that the Germans might crush the AUles, was imminent, and at such times men do not think rationally, and there was abundant reasons to excuse the executive for overstepping the more conservative course by showing its loyalty and its desire to do every.-thing possible to avert the danger that was and is threatening, and my main purpose in writing this letter to the masses of the XJ.F.A. is to plead for loyalty to the U.F.A. and ite offl-oiais, even though you do not personally agree with their action. Loyalty is not only the foundation of virtue, character and of all that is good in man, but it is absolutely essential in the success of any and all relations of life and organization. Indeed it is the basic principle upon wh^h all relations that stand must be buUded. We sometimes disagree with the thoughts or actions ot our wife and children, but this does not in the eUghtest degree modify our loyalty to them or our common interests, and io on through all our relations, wa have objections, but to these relfttloBS w� remain truly loyal. Loyalty, we aay, to our home, our town, onr iiiitltation, our country and our God, ia tundamehtally and essentially neceasary, and so we plead for loyalty to our executive and our officials. We belleva that they have our Interests at heart and though they may make mistakes, this Is no reason for us to waiver in our allegiance. Let the driVa far membership be pushed in all fletds. liSt no outelde interests drive in the wedge ot dissatisfaction between the membership and its offl clals, but all standing together working for the common cause is the only way to accomplish and make sura the -priiiolplea for which we stand.

On these trips, which is around 40 miles each way, I pass hundreds of farmhouses where the owners, judging from tho appearance ot houses and outbuildings, ore more or less well to do. Dut during all these years I have only seen etx plantations set out, and 1 am sorry to say that nearly all of these are failures; that is, the tree* have been neglected by tho owners ind the grass is killing them out. vnita ono takes into consideration that trees will grow around every farmhouse ou tho Alberta prairie, if planted right and taken care of, and that trees not only, are useful to shol-ter the buiUliuge. but are a joy to look at, ono continued round o� loveliness from spring to fall, it is a pity that so few will put out a plantation and it is still more sad that those few who have had courage enough to plant, will not take care ot the trees afterwards. In fact, it would be far bettor it these neglected, plantations had never been set out as their poor conditions will pravout others from trying in. I claim absolutely that certain kind Ot trees, it planted right and kept clean for four or five years, will grow around any farmstead in southern Alberta and that whenever plantations have been set out and failed. It is due to carelessness and neglect. Some readers of this paper may think I am making a strong statement; that here Is another nicely done up package ot that "hot air" advice which so gon, erously have been handed out to farmers tor the Inst few years. But whetlaer you believe me or not, I have produced the goods. On practically all sides of my farm there are growing several thousands of trees in prime condition; some ot the trees are 20 feet high and there are very few missing. This grove of mine is not an accident, but is the result ot having taken good, care of the tree.i. and any farmer who will use a little common sense and expend a little labor can do the same. But while I claim tiiat trees will grow anywhere on the prairlo they must be treated in a certain way. Ono can't grow trees in the easy careless way you may do back Bast. If you have the idea that you can take any kind of trees and plant any old way, at any time, it will bo a failure. To start with, you must have your land in good condition, and all the grass worked out of it. Trees will grow on breaking all right; that is, the year after tho land has been broke, but it is much better to put in a crop or two ot potatoes firet. Unless the land is in good condition when you plant you are liable to have lots of trouble afterwards. If land is In stubble. �. good summerfallow should he done before planting. Last week in April or first halt ot May are the best times to plant. There are a nimiber of sorts of trees that will grow, but I will just give fhe name of a few that have proven absolutely dOt pendable with me. Tho^e are: Manitoba maple, green ash, Russian poplars, several kinds ot willows (best for low wet land) and caraganas. Do not trj- to plant large troes, thinking you are striking a short cut to got a forest; the smaller trees are the surer. Do not set out narrow belts or single trees, as they will be hard to keep clean and too much exposed to the wind. Planf at least six rows wide and ten rows are still better; plant four tett apart each way, which will allow a one horse cultivator to go between rows. On the west and north side ot your building are the best placo for a windbreak. As soon as your trees are planted, or at least a couple of weeks later, buy a one horse cultivator and run It through the rows several times during May, June and July. Do not cultivate after August first, as this will cause the trees to keep growing to� late, and It the. wood does not ripen they aro apt to freeze.

Now then, in "concluslotv, let me draw a picture for tho benefit of you farmers, who, after many years ot residence in Southern Alberta aro still living on the open prairie with nothing to gaze at but wire fences and rock piles. You who perhaps at this very time are trying desperately to shield yourselves from the hot rays of the sun behind a big rock.

I i is .-. - young trace, and It you let this get the best of you your grove is bound to fail. If you want trees make up your mind that you will have nothing In that patch but trees, and make war on w��ds and grass. Now then, It you have planted the rlfht kind ot trees In tl:o right kind ot prepared land, and kept troes cul-tlwited, they should be big enough to shade the ground and take caro ot themselves In four or five years Wben your trees get big enough so you cannot run the cultivator through tha rows any more, you must koep an eye on them just the ,earae. It there is grass surrounding the grove, it Is bound to creep in and it you left any grassy spots among these trees these are bound to get bigger every year. The only remedy for this, If you can't cultivate, isUo put a foot or so of straw on top of those graes spots; this will smother the grass and pre-vnnt it 'from growing. Watch out for d�ad trees, for,no matter how well you plant, .there la always a few trees that from some cause or other will dip. So It you don't want openings In your plantation be sure to replant tho next spring. Never trim away the lo^Rr branches of your trees in wttid-broak. Your neighbors, who have nn treftH tliemsolves, but who know all about It, will advise you to trim your troes, and while this may be a good plan in Ontario, Wisconsin, or lillnoiH, It will not do here. If I hud followed all the,advice I have rocolv-od along this line, I should now have a grass plot and a fow straggling trees. Lot all the branches grow and kt�p out tha. sunllKbt below.
