As part of the same general strategic plan Russia an Salute to Agriculture This week the weekly newspapers of the Dominion have plumed a "salute to agriculture." The man on the land is to learn that he is really appreciated. Canadian fanners daring the war made a contribution to victory which hss often been lauded ia high places but which, we fear, has been all loo little appreciated by Cana- dians as a. whole. Not only have they worked long hard hours with little help and depreciating ma- chinery which still cannot be re- placed, but they nave accepted for their products prices which have generally been well below the world scale for foodstuffs. Today the farmers of the West are deliver- ing their wheat at per bushel for domestic consumption, and they are accepting far less than the S2 world price for export wheat. For their cattle and -wool, too, they have accepted much lower figures than prevail elsewhere oa the continent. They have worked without thought of hours> and they have faced the hazards imposed by Nature ia their day to day and year to year pro- duction eSorts. It is true that farmers, generally, hare arrived at a point where they are enjoyirg higher incomes than in the pre- war days, but -vre should not for- get that the pre-war cays were the depression thirties when few farm-, ers mace an income suScient to' pay expenses, much less show a. profit. It is most ymfair to talk about percentage increases oa farm incomes based upon the below-cost farm commodity -prices of the thir- ties.

Ttvmt, MJUA. IS THERE A HOUSE SHORTAGE? When I was a small boy I nearo. a man sav, "Figures can't liars can figure." I've had occasion to recall that statement many, many times ia the years between then" and now. Ann uw leaped back to mind again the other dav when I read an article in the Financial Post which pur- ported to show that not only did Canada not have a housing short- age, but was better off today than at anv time in. our history. In the first place, the article speaks of the homes a year we are building at the present. Where they got that figure is a complete mvstery. Even toe most optimistic estimates for this year stopped at now the officials state that if we get 30.000 this year we will be lucky. That is 30 GOO new homes. Nothing is said about the homes which will be destroved by fire, which will be or should" be condemned because they have deteriorated to the point where they are no longer safe. Tnev also point out that, during the depression years we averagea about housing units per year.

I used to fall off this little old stool. Now the chain catches me when I start to go." point out that ia that year we had 576 Canadians per housing unit. All of which, is nothing but a bit of indefensible playing with figures to prove an erroneous point. The facts which aren't taken into consideration are these: Firstly, the average Canadian family of todav is considerably smaller than the average Canadian Martha savs: The black shirts. famiiy Oi yesterday.

They should remember that there are no strikes in Russia dur- ing this post-war period or at any other time because the totalitarian whip is held over the workers. If they want a similar regime in North America, they are soing the right way about it. Undoubtedly that is what thp Communist fringe in then- ranks want. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE earn their living in the manufacture of fine china -which is concentrated in a small industrial area in north Staffordshire in England. From more than fifty factories in this area, English china is exported to all parts of the world. Thousands of Canadians in the Sudbury and Port Colborne areas their living producing Canadian Nickel. Other thousands all over Canada find employment in the production of lumber, power, steel, machinery and supplies purchased by the Canadian Nickel Less tfcaxi three per cent of the Nickel produced in Canada is consumed in Canada. The rest is exported, and the money received helps to pay for English china and other products necessary to good living in Canada. Canada cannot keep on importing from other lands unless Canadian goods are exported. By constantly seeking to expand the use of Nickel at home and abroad, the Canadian Nickel industry brings additional benefits to Canada and Canadians.
