And that wori is a. training in itself for a boy or girl who -will find in after- school life that there is good deal that is monotonous and s, good deal of drudgery in the every- day tasks. We have always thought that one reason farm boys and girls are more self-reliant boys from the towns 2nd cities is that they see on the farm that'there, are tasks which can only be ac- complished by application and hard work. They have a training ia work that stands them in good stead. Tee grade school should teach boys and girls the essentials, the new junior schools should pol- ish HP iheir groundwork and make it secure, and at the same time be- gin to open up to them the oppor- tunities which will be theirs when school days are over. Senior high school should start the yooag men and women on the to the busi- ness or the trade or the profes- sion which, with some guidance they may choose.

TETERAXS HOUSING When the housing question came p for discussion before the Legion. onvennon, it became obvious im- mediatelv that there would be spir- ed debate. Delegates from, all parts j Canada all retsorted the same tragic details, and were united in common demand that this should considered, as the most important j roblem. fating the country today, yet the authorities could offer us no promise of relief. Added to the shortage of ma- erials is the shortage of skilled labor of all kinds. "We are pitifully _hort not onlv of labor for the construction trades themselves, but or the production of the materials reouired. The demand-came from toe convention floor, from, many individual delegates, for the gov- ernment to solve this problem as they had solved the manpower sroblem curing the war leating i; as the national emerg- ency that it is and getting the labor and materials, by direction, if necessary. Of coarse the trouble is tnat the moment the government moved to- dav to direct people into industries, or Into jobs, or to places where they did not want to go; the moment government directed manufacturers to uroduce things they did not wish to 'produce; at that same moment from every part of the country would came cries of "dictatorship" and many speeches would be mace THAT BODY! OF YOURS (JAMES W. BA3.TON, JtD.) RHET3IATIC COMMON AND DAXGEROtJ At time wnen so many men and women in the prim'' of life are j dving of heart disease, physicians fighting i about the virtues of freedom, democracy. throughout the world are to prevent that dread disease rheu- j matic fever, which so damages the i heart that it is unable to pump suf- icient blood for the needs of the jodv. I It is known that tonsilitis and sep-1 tic sore throat-are forerunners ofj fever. Thus in. the Rhode 5land Medical Journal, Dr." John, j Taul. Tale University, states that t good year for streptococcic dis- eases, such as scarlet fever and ton- sillitis is a good year also for rheu- matic fever." Hheumatic fever is eiiormousiv more common in tem- perate zones where there are likely. to be long periods of inclement during which people tena to herd together indoors. Some idea of the great prevalence of rheumatic fever can be gatnerea from the statement of Dr. Esley J. Kirk. Omaha, in the Nebraska Med- ical Journal who says that the num- of cases of rheumatic fever essay with that of other important diseases such as tuberculosis, in- paralysis and syphilis. 'L all ages are considered, rheumatic fever ranks third as a chronic in- fectious disease, exceeded only by tuberculosis and syphilis.

From another source we get further evidence of the high death rate in rheumatic fever. Drs. Don- ald B: Armstrong and George W- Wheatley (Metropolitan IJfe Insur- ance Co.) state that between o and 13 vears, rheumatic fever is. among diseases the leading cause of aeatn. ft is responsible for a large fraction o' deaths from heart disease wmcn interferes with the earning ability cf thousands in their prime yeaia. Fresh air. good food and avoid- ing crowded places is the advice siver> to prevent attacks of rneu- nwtic fever. If exposed the use of salfa drugs is advisable. And yet it- is obvious that some- thing must be done. It is becoming increasingly obvious that there wil be no solution to our problems unti there is some direction. Whether the government is prepared to dc it or not I would not be prepared to guess. But it might be well for the public to remember that at the present time we stand no chance o getting the production we neea until the public co-operates bv doing the job itself, or the gov- ernment takes the bull by the boms and directs them to do it. The Legion's report on housing did not attempt to assess the blame for our nreseni muddle. It did not attempt "to lay down detailed plans for solving the problem. But it did make these suggestions: 1. That the government should speed uo its announced plans of putting 'all housing efforts under one central control. 2. That the government should recognize that the urgent need is not for homes in the luxury and semi-luxury classes, but homes for the little man who has been over- looked in all plans up to the present.
