The North Calgary mem- ber said he had hoped when Mr. Smith rose'to speak that he would have some suggest ions to offer toward settling the impending strike of school teach- ers Mr. Davidson had tack on another member ever heard, in the Alberta house.

The Daily News declares it is able to say nothing but "amen" to Presi- dent Hardlng's refusal to enter Alli- ances and his aspirations tor peace and disarmament. It regrets, how- ever. he leaves his attitude to- ward the League of Nations indeter- nifnate. The newspaper deplores Mr. Hardlng's decision for non-involve- ment in the affairs of Europe.
