This year they are going to. do even bigger things. This is vouch ed for by the leader of the Girl Guide movement in Canada, Lady Pellatt. Interviewed at "Casa Loma," Toronto, the Commissioner of the prepared to move the greater part of i Guides spoke in no uncertain tones of time that something of the kind was done, iinil because of the abundance of certain food in some provinces and the absence of these same foods in others, she believes that the scheme suggested by Mr. Thomson is the only practical one. "I'm glad the line has been drawn where cakes and candies aro concerned." she declared. "We've been hav-iug too many luxuries altogether, and it won't hurt a scrap to go without them. We would be much healthier with less meat and more fish, and we certainly can do with fewer sweets. "In fact, "t think that, taking it all in all. the legislation of the Food Board has been very sane and wise. It has gone forward calmly and systematically, taking up each problem as., it -rose, witliout hurrying into drastic or ill-considered action." next winter's supply now.

POINTS OUT HOW DRAFT WILL AFFECT FARMERS Calgary, .hino 14.-Expressing their determination and willlngncsa to do their full fehare and givii their best services In winning the war, but clearlyl stating that the entorcomcnt of the atnendmont to the luiUtary sor-' vice act would result iu a sorloua situation among the farmers of Alberta, the full executive board of the United Farmers of .-Vlberta has momorlalizell the Dominion governmnnt. The memorial was taken east by K. \y. Wood, the president, and delivered in person to Hon. T. A. Crerar. minister of agriculture. .Mr. Wotxl returned to Calgary Wednesday morning. Thla is the position of the United Farmers Of Alherta: Wo, the directors of the United Farmers of Alberta, in se.ssion assembled, do hereby memorialize the governor-general-in-council ' of the Dominion ot Canada as follows- 1. Wo desire to assure the government that we aro willing to do our full share In giving our boat services in winning this war. and do not desire to shirk any 'responsibility that is ours in this time ot danger. 2. Wc do, however, assure the government that the situation amonK the farmers of Alberta is so serious that it calls for the greatest possible wisdom In council, and -steadfastness of purpose to maintain that hearty support that a loyal people owe to their government iu such a time as this, ;!- And, again, we have been compelled to view with great alorm the situation which is being created in this province by the recent military measures, and especially the last ordor-in-councll. April 20, 19IS. The seriousness ot this situation is only now becoming clearly apparent, and this organization feels that the government cannot fully have appreciated the far-reaching effects of the measures .that have been taken. The dlrectoi-s of the United Farmers of Alberta, therefore, have thought it their duty to place this memorial before the government, so that In assuming responsibility for any further ineasnre.s which may now be under consideration, the government will be clearly advised �s to the seriousness of the situation which has already been created. And wo are sending this memorial by the hand aud in the person ol our president. II. \V. Wood, who will be able to give you the information that we feel we are unable to give 1 you by letter. Signed on behalf of the United Far' mers of Alberta: H. W. WOOD, President. H. HIGGINBOTHA.M. Secretary Board Was Unanimous. "The conclusions stated above were arrived at only after a long and detailed discussion on thepart ot the board," said Mr. Wood yesterday. "No real conflict was involved, and the unanimous support of the board was given the memorial." � SAVE SUGAR By Using( CROWN^BRAND SYRUP CORN for all Sweetening In 2, 5, 10 and 20 pound tin* �nd 3 lb.

The mayor's attitude is the sumo as that ot most other mayors and eoun-oillors of Alberta cities, and largely explains thff fact that the larger urban municipalities in Alberta are in a worse mess than those in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The mayor's reference to the sufferings nnd pain which the citizens would have endured had a policy ot tax enforcemant been adopted in the province Is a moving one. I am not able to under--stand, however, the theory on which municipal authorities have nustlfled the extension of credit to ratepayers for services rendered, in circumstan-ees where the ordinary trader or business man would refuse to part with his goods except for payment. "It would be absurd to argue that such a law as exists in Saskatchewan, whereby municipalities are obliged to hold a tax sale not later than the first of November of all iiroperties in respect of which any taxes aro in arrear up to the previous thirty-first of December, and under which the property owner is given as long as two years in which to redeem, would work a hardship on any owner ot improved property, which could or should be avoided. Even such an easy measure of legislation would - htfVe served greatly to improve the financial posi tion of Alberta cities. "People who have been holding vac-and lots speculatively should be compelled either to pay their taxes or let go the relative properly. They have been sitting in at a game at which they have lost, and like any other gamblers they shoulld bo prepared to take the consequences ot the game going against them. Jlost ot thcni have been so,prepared, but the municipal authorities have tailed to do their part."

They have responded splendidly to the message sent out by the Chairman ot the Canada Food Board, urging them to do what they could to add to the country's food supply. Arrangements have been made for two Toronto companies to go out to Lindsay early this month, and all over the i Dominion they I have lined up for "active service'" on the land. Their war gardens are growing apace, tor numbers of them took vacant lots early in the season and are working hard with hoe and rake. ".Iiist as soon,as war broke out the Girl Guides pledged themselves to national service," declared Lady Pellatt, in speaking of their purposes and achievements. "They have given up all thought of working for themselves, and no matter what form of war work presents itself, they are ready to take it up if at all feasible.

It is well understood that if these cities ever will be able to clear up their ouLstanding indebtedness, the time for doing it is right now; and It will very soon be demonstrated that the places that tackle the job hon.estly and thoroughly will find their reward when the time for further expansion comes along.
