H .summed It up tersely and poignantly Vhen he said "If the Governments cannot co-operate to make the peo- ple slay on tbe land, they should co- to get the people away." Coming from a man and a with the shrewdness he possesses, and with the sensing he has of the menace of soil-drifting to agriculture, the- words of Mr. Wood should drive home the intensity cf the present sit nation, in Ihe parts affected in the district, to the Federal and Provincial Governments and bring them to sense ihelr responsiblltles in regard lo the and so co-operato to allevials and remedy matters. The patent solu tion of the present enormous handicap lo the agricultural industry in this part of the Province lies in irrigation This is Ihe dictum of the- President "-of the U.F.A., and In this he lends his weight to what has been .by other authorities with a familiar .knowledge of conditions as they are It therefore, for the two whatever dlff erehcea there be between tfiem .and io cooperate sp as to furilst effectual means whereby the plans secn to strangle Individual liberty. faced with necessary which are bound to are arise In furnishing the needed relief Irrespective of the final benefits _ which are bound lo accrue frooi'tbo water being brought on the .'land In 'the district which Is at present suffer ing from- the effects of soil-drifting measures taken in hand to make 'tbo irrigation project Immediately tea Bible, .with the necessary construction work, will mean much financially a any rate In affording a means of liveli hood for the farmers 'who otherwise would be thrown on the bounty o the Governments. This is a phosi .of the situation which should. have strong appeal, and it calls for tha consideration which is expected from In the responsibility they -hold in regard to the people. If there is any meaning or cogency to the "tall for greater production apart from thesgreat factor of conaer ration, tbe call should be made 'coiicreie- one in opportunity being given for this greater production. Mr. Jrfarnocb, the President of th of Trade, has been strenuou and energetic in calling the attention of responsible authority to a situa tion which cannot rfs minimized What appeals to the individual shoul appeal to responsible authority. In respect he has been doing yeo "man's, service, and the call he ha sounded fully merits immediate -sponse. Tho true solution for the handicap of agriculture, occurring year afte year, has fieen discovered In irn'ga tion. The cup has been brought t the I.lp of the longsuffering farmer and If governmental duly and govcr mental responsibility count for an> thing it should not he suffered, to b 'dashed aside, even momentarily, wit .tbe. temporary delay of in re gard'to the very necessary' Irr.'gatio' The. irrigation question Is too Im portent, It'fs too grave a question" t with, It should not b allowed lo hang fire for ine want .tho financial backing needed, and fo .which .the Governments are lookei to make It materialize as speccill 'as possible. Unfortunate though tho present conditions are- such '.lend their force In demanding tba matters should be brought to a head ;In this respect, the force of the utlc ante Of President of Ihe- u.RA i 'cannot lie denied. There Is a velum Ot cold ttorn fact in what he nay 'that If the Governments cannot c operate lo keep tno people on tl land, they should .co-operate to get .thorn, away. Do You Know?
