An authority like Dr. Gilbert Slater, Principal of Ruskln College, Oiford, Eng., while estimating that less than forty million acres of the European countries will be put out of cultiva- tion, placing the figure at anywhere between eighteen to twenty-five mil- .lion acres, has this to say: "If the world's average harvest is IXJIlVtrllUUU 111D1.

Opposition. Mr. Michener said that it was Mr. Montgomery's personal stand- Ing in the community, nnd not the gov- ernment's policy which, won the bye- election In Wetankiwin last full with such a thumping majority.

If the fight was between men, and not on policies what a left-handed wallop the leader handed the victim of the fray, who now to the disgust of losing depo'it must add the humiliation of a repudiation by his leader as a man of no standing in the community.
