Committee Selected to Arrange Celebration Lethbridge will have, a civic cele- bration on Dominion Day, and a com- mittee of six, with power to add to fthcir numoer, was selected to ar- range the details of tbe program at a citizens' meeting lield last night in rthe YM.C. A. -auditorium, called by EMayor Hardie to discuss plans. lor. holiday. About forty men, and ladies attended. The citizens exhibited plenty of get- but it was .apparent that they had (widely diner- lent ideas as to which way to push. The enthusiasm shown last night, if directed, should- result in a_cele- oration of which'any city might -be G K JIarnoch was elected chair- man of the-mceting. A tentative plan of the program was discussed and with this to work on a general'dis- nussion of ways and means took place The question of the formation of a permanent organization was dis- cussed and finally'voted down for the -present. ______ While'it is up to-the committee to decide on-the character' of; the cele- bration, it is evident from the views expressed last night that there are great dirliculties to overcome. the chief of these is fin- ance. The athletic men were of the opinion that money is required for prizes, etc., in running a sports pro- gram. Several citizens declared that athletes should be satisfied to strive for the honor of winning, and rib- bons were suggested as prizes. The committee which was appoint- Isaac L, Mills nearly always gets good results from his farming oper- ations In the Maslnasin district. He possesses the reputation of being a farmer who knows how to farm right. Last year wnen hosts of oth- er people were not getting enough off their land to provide green feed for stock, Mills harvested 1500 bush- els of wheat, which he has in his. granary yet. But It is not this which has made Mr. Mills so noted as his volunteer crops of wheat. We have had vol- unteer crops of wheat in this coun- try before, and we th'ouejht some of them were wonderful, but Farmer Mills of Maslnasin is believed to have beaten all records. In 1912 he had a crop of fall wheat. In 1913 the wheat volunteered in this field and yielded half a crop. In 1914 the 35 or 40 acres.which composed this field was ploughed up and sown to oats and timothy, but on account of the drought it did not make any headway. Now what hap- pened In" 1915? In the spring there was a growth in this field, which Mr. Mills took to be timothy coming up from the of the previous year, but the neighbors concluded nreen spots were merely weeds. Mr. Mills did not consider lfie: weed suggestion, and watenvd for'the growth to ad- vance. What was the result! -He was surprised that what he thought to be timothy, and what some of the neighbors thought to be weeds, turned out to be winter wheat, and today this field contains a stand of winter wheat two feet high, and not In the least patchy, and the prediction Is that it will yield at least 25 bushels to the acre. This is most remarkable for a field which first yielded a crnp in 1912 and has liot wheat since. Mr. Mills has another 75 acres ot volunteer wheat. It was seeded in 1913, but did not yield much of a crop last year; it would not be sur- prising if it'yielded 30 bushels to the acre this year. There is a considerable amount of winter wheat in the country east of Milk river. There are some fields which look fully as well as fields of winter wheat been seeded to tricts of Cardston arid Pincht. Creek, and It will not be surpris- ing if there are yields of winter wheat that will average over 40 bushels to the acre in the Milk River valley. There are also some splendid stands of fall rye, and altalfa Is doing well In some (sections. F. S. Leffingwell, M.P.P., has a beautiful field of'alfalfa at his farm at Milk River. It looks as good as any al- falfa grown on irrigated land. He also has quite a tidy little acreage of field peas, which at the present time look as though they would bring a splendid yield. This Milk River valley Is a rev- elation. Where there was drought last year, there is a promise this year of one of the best crops ever produced in southern Alberta. It {a true that some of the fields are patchy, and will not yield much, but this is largely due to poor farming. The average crop will be better than at any time in the his- tory of the district, and some of yields are going to be real bumper Germans Expect to Take Capital in a Day or Two Kerhie, corpus proceedings relative" to the: in- ternment of aliens at Fernie, which were to have been taken in court to- day a'l Victoria, have been postponed for one' week.
