Lethbridge Daily Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FJGMT THE OF INTEREST TO THE FARMER PROBLEMS OF THE ORGANIZED FARMERS Some Nuts to Crack by the by Ex In a discussion of Immigration be fofe the Dominion Senate recently one ot OUr Senators made a statement to the following wo do not ob ject to any Immigrants who come to Canada to work with their Then he spoke of mines and and In which we used the Italian nnd the but continuing he what wo do object to is men who come to Canada and make their living by their According to thi Canada in its immigration policy Is bidding for not The incident is important be cause the usual view point of the far mers occupation is that calls for muecle and but not necessarily I know of no general conclu sion of people that is farther from ihe Of all of the occupations open to men at the present there Is none In which brains are more es sential than that of the An The farmer today must not only have that practical knowledge that conies from experience and which is learned most efficiently by the ex perience of being brought up on a I refer to the general know ledge of oll and a thousand and one things that Is the common knowledge ot every farmer who is raised on a but today this knowledge is not suffi In order to be a successful far mer he must be an expert with hand ling horses and stock of different and the ordinary He must be a mechanic and must know such problems as the compon ent parts of the gas engine and the principle upon which it He muflt be an expert also on know and in this tlin host method to

the different strains of beet and to care for the He must know how to get the most weight in hogs on the least He must be a business know something about and be able to keen his books after he hae put In his to or 12 hours in Then the problem of his social surroundings and the education of his are more difficult than that ot the urban and the question involving the marketing his products call for brains of the highest Farmer Needs If any man needs brains it le the and the kind of farmer that we want Is the farmer with no other will In fact the inducements that Canada should offer for immigra tion rippeal only to men with Let us have Immigration with brains no matter what the vocation is so long as there is a place for him find it is And by the way that brings us to the point that we wish to discuss in this When the farmers have obtained the weight on legislative matters that they are destined to ob one of the nuts that they should crack is the Dominion The House of Lords of England at the time it was instituted and for many generations since had a logical reason for its It represented a THE IBTD iara STANDARD DANK OF CANADA MEAD Office TORONTO COLLECTIONS Business houses will find our facili ties for making collections particularly but Its power has been con tinually diminishing until now ah act can be passed and become law With out the ascent of that There never was a logical reason tot a legis lative body In whose mem bers held a life tenure much less a body who were not elected by the Its a matter of common know ledge that our Senate has been to provide places for Party not service to the country ie the one paramount requisite to ap The body has neither the long and more or less useful history of the House it nor an aristo cratic nobility to Justify its The United States Senate la al together a different It now Is elected by the people and the term of offlcij is but six It Is a body into which the most successful Con gressmen hope But for the Congressmen to be promoted to the Senate is a distinct recognition of ability and service and can only be accomplished by the vote of his Indeed because of the body being fewer In more experienced In legislative having a longer tenure ot office than the members of Congress yet being responsible to the has rendered the United States Senate one of life greatest legislative bodies in the world and serves a distinct pur pose In legislative Can this be said of our Senate I am afraid Few indeed are the instances where the Senate has exerted its particularly In opposition to Parlia j ment in behalf of the popular Us I record hae been simply to acquiesce i i or to In the case of the House of there was always the rem eily of creating enough new seats to overcome the opposition of the will of I the but in Canada the people do not even have this and in fact the people are at the mercy of a body concerning the appointment of whom they are not Indeed the reasons for appointment to the party le in itself suf ficient ground for We have had too much party Sure ly the Senate Is not in harmony with our Democratic form of If the body were made responsive to the will of the people and the term of office limited to a definite it might then become a balancing as It the law making functions of the and tending towards stability and advancement of erratic but unless something is done along these to make the body

summer fallow a field ot corn producing from 15 to 25 bushels iof shelled corn to the acre is a ppssibility thait isirug gested by the tests made at the Do minion Experimental Station at Leth For the past two years it has been quite clearly demonstrated on the nonirrigated part of the farm that wheat sown on corn stubble will pro duce on the average just as large a crop as when sown on good summer true even in the dry year of Some of the common sorts were being grown for silage or to be cured in the stock and fed dry In the It was always quite the cobs just starting to Few farmers could use more than a few acres ot this rough kind of The problem was to get a variety hat would ripen for the This was found in the Squaw Corn which only grows two or three feet high and the which are very come out close to the For the last seven years careful breeding and selection work lias been done with this variety and a limited quantity of seed Is now available for distribution from the four pound

and close to the groundit is scarcely practic able to harvest large acres of the but either hogs or sheep can be turned in the fall to The yields on the station from thta var iety of corn planted on spring plow ed stubble land has been from 16 to 25 bushels per acre SHELLED As mentioned the yield of wheat the year following is just about as good on the corn stubble as on the This corn be planted about May 15th but any time between May 10th and 20th will MORE FORAGE CROPS Advleea More Acreage In Alfalfa and Other Increase of forage crop production can be accomplished by increasing the average yield of alfalfa and other perennial crops and a larger use ot summer annual The most desirable annual crops ace Sudan grass and the specialists point Honey Sorghum is one of the best varieties for silage or green It yields heavily and is of good Sudan grass will produce a larger amount of good for age under irrigation than any other and as it is an annual H is especially serviceable for quick pro On irrigated land Sudan grass can be sown as late as July but for heavy production planting should be made about April As Su dan grass seed Is not always readily obtainable farmers should make sure at once of the amount they will The normal average yield ofalfalfa is considered far below what it should Yields from 6 to 8 tons to an acre are The surest and quickest way of increasing the average yield of alfalfa is to see that the stands are thickened Bare places in fields should be put in con dition and the best time for this being February or early Reseeding for the purpose of thicken ing thin elands should be done when the old alfalfa plants are making but little which means in the fall or early The worlds call for food this year makes the forage situation of unusual In past years large am ounts of grain have been cut for but this plan will be largely aban doned this year so that more mature grain can be ORDER IMPLEMENTS HOLDS MEETING Reqatst for Refund To Gtt An
