Dr. Howard con- ilany invidious comparisons have been made "as to what this province or'that province is doing m the way of recruiting. It has been said, for example, that the West is more loyal tnan. the East because proportionately it has furnished more men for the war. .This is only a half truth which disappears when we consider that the West is largely made up from young men of .the East wlrom, the hazard-of new fortunes took to that part of (he country. As a matter.'of fact all the provinces are doing their dutj The fault lies in the system of recruit- ing, which evernorks some Canada and underworks others Faulty System For example, one great recruiting city in phtario'is at present the cen tre' regiments in process of. :If-two "regiments instead recruited at a time the results "wpuid-'work out much better up expense of organization for the other seven would be cut out until.their turn came.

Under this plan some regl nents have been recruiting ever since tivo regiments more-quickly but the maintaining -a skeletop the Eton boy who is good enough to supplant a husky young Canadian lieu- tenant who knows his book. The Ifeit time .Major General Sir Sam Hughes goes to England he should discuss this matter with the Wiir Office.

Quite a few of. them are ich.and greedy and believe in tak- ng.'all that's coming to them. In one aae that, I have in it is; Qly one of mother of a anadian officer, who is in receipt of is1.full civil salary of a year while he is on duty at Shornecliffe, raws his full separation allowance ni] applies it to the rent of an ei- '_ apartment, which.jshe. keeps ockedTup she is in England to e near her son The Militia Depart inept could save this country a lot of money by paying separation allow, aric'es only, where separation allow ances are needed t'o keep wnnt from the' door.
