"If Lethbridge had the house � a comruodation-today we would have a ' population of 1-5,000." 1 This statement was made to the . Herald yesterday and we quite be- i lieve it. * Some days ago we asked whether ' tnyone had a solution for the housing problem. No one has come forward yet. To the Herald it seems as if , fhe mayor and council, the board of j tradB and other such organizations � should be giving the question of hous- : ing the most serious consideration. There is nothing t^be gained by saying, "It can't be done." That's not the way' to tackle this problem. It should be the city's greatest interest to secure population and see tteit they find accommodation. That's wnat will help reduce the taxes. Nothing else will. Right now men are sending their families to the coast, and to Calgary 'to live because they cannot get houses here. Sarely something can be done .to put a stop to this loss. It is too 'serious a problem to be allowed to go Without some determined effort to lolve it. >'PLANT AN ACRE i^OR THE RED CROSS." About a year ago six weak Presbyterian churches in a rural section in [South Carolina came to the conclusion :$hat. they would support a missionary hi China. All told they had about 3SG members, and they had been contributing $500 to foreign missions. After discussing the matter it was decided to jraise a subscription of acres rather �than money, and while a few promised (money, the othei* promised the crop on forty acres: The result was surprising. Thirty-two of the acre subscribers turned in over S-.400, the contributions ranging from $10 to $10S an acre. The experiment proved so suc-iCessful that these six churches are now considering the raising of all their (cburch funds upon the acreage basis. Here is a good suggestion for 'the rural Red Cross societies of this province. Let them make their slogan, "Plant an acre for,the Red Cross." Saskatchewan farmers did this for Belgian relief and produced great results. The Herald believes there are hundreds of farmers in this province who would be glad to subscribe to such a plan "or the Red Cross if the organization were to tackle the plan in the .proper way It would -not affect production but it would swell the '(.--! ;Crosa funds for which there is the greatest need right now. of license, and certificate of a person convicted ^>f intoxication while driving a motor vehicle.

Provincial aid in the form of grants for the erection of the new school plant and for maintenance. Alberta has gone much further in consolidation than has Saskatchewan, and it would appear 'that we are on collecting a local tax as well as the provincial tax. Mr. Hoadley, "Why not let them get. the whole of it?" Premier Stewart said that it was not simply a matter of revenue. The cittes did "not all exercise the necessary supervision. Mr. Cross said that in addition to the inspectors the work of supervision the right track. But what Prof. Fognt.-was done by the local police. Mr. Weir savs about the need of making tho! said that in the smaller places in the consolidated school "an agricultural ! province they wanted something done community school" may well be fol- THE OPENING OF PARLIAMENT. Canada's new parliament is in session at Ottawa. It Is a parliament unique in the history of Canada, for party lines have been broken down and Liberals and Conservatives have joined in support of a Union government for the purpose of carrying on Canada's \ part in the war. The people of Canada have given the members a mandate so forceful that it cannot; easily be mistaken, and we have high hopes that the government and its supporters will,live up to the confidence reposed in it. The speech' from the Throne revealed little in the'way of impending legislation that has not previously been forecasted, but two measures, which tu normal times wouiu have received lowed in Alberta. Our agricultural high schools are intended to give vocational training in agriculture, but we believe vocational training in a practical way .ihould start earlier. Dr. Voght says of vocational training for Saskatchewan: Saskatchewan's main industry is agriculture, and a complete system of vocational education for the province would have agricultural education as its point ol departure, with special training opportunities in the traues and commercial pursuits more or less dependent upon farming. " The same applies to Alberta every whit as much as to Saskatchewan right now when Albertans are undertaking betterments in their school facilities by way of consolidation is the time for the department of education to take active measures to have vocational training in agriculture given a large place in the curriculum. The Washington professor urges the reduction of the examination machinery to the lowest possible maximum. If this were done the way would be opened for more work of a practical, nature in all our schools. Mr. E. H. PuUord of Ottawa, local representative of the Gault Bros. Co., Ltd., has been chosen to represent the Commercial Travellers' association on the Canada Food Board. John B. Mathewson of Appleby, Halton county, Ont., a keen temperance advocate, died on a farm where he was born in 1S42 and had lived all his life. * The meeting of the Western 'f'air managers, Edmonton, confirmed the original dates set for the Brandon and Regina summer fairs, July 22 to 27 and July SO to August 3, respectively.

In the country districts conditions prevailed that were an absolute menace to the growing 'youth of the land. Mrs. McKinney said that if the province collected the license the government should exercise the supervision. She said that the local authorities could not. refuse permission to operate. Mr. Cross observed that the province siill had responsibility for supervision. | he hoped very soon to have the list Mr. Gilmour inquired why they had ] prepared They had received a reas-four inspectors in 1917. the year of the ; onable amount of applications said election, and that' one was sufficient'; the minister, and had selected twelve said that was merely The Russians have made peace but the llun armies are still advancing into Russia.

Hon. .1. It. Boyle, discussing the matter of provincial control said that in exercising the supervision the govern-and i meni was not affected by local prejudice yet they had the power of the local police in connection with, the administration of the law. Mr. Weir said it seemed to the people of his district that the government only collected the fees, and provided fat salaries for a few officials. He was not agreed to the shutting up the pool rooms during the war, but he maintained there should be proper supervision. Dr. Stanley asserted that the administration of the act should he in tho hands of the local authorities. Premier Stewart replied that he had not believed the people wanted that. So far as the provincial government was concerned it was not simply a matter of fees. Progress having been reported with the bill the house was about to adjourn it being ten o'clock, Mr. Hoadley inquired of the minister of agriculture when he would have ready the list of Hi men lie intended to place in 'barge, of the greater production scheme. lion. Duncan Marshall replied that reading names. Mr. Meyer was low examining the qualifications he had received to select the remaining lour. They had decided that those engaged must be reasonably young and active men. Later in t*he session the leader of the opposition had called attention to some criticisms that the opposition was delaying the progress of legislation, by unnecessary discussion, and said that the number of government bills on the paper demonstrated that the criticism was not justified. A bill must be allowed to be a reasonable time in the members hand to be understood. Mr. Weir declared that the business was not being held up by the private members. The number of unprlntad government bills showed that. Premier Stewart remarked that he knew nothing of the criticisms that had been referred to and explained that time wan necessary to get bills in shape so as to avoid unnecessary-amendments. He mentioned that the mines compensation bill had to be drafted and said that, even- opportunity would be given the members for the consideration of the measures.' *The municipal hospitals act amended passed through committee and was reported for third CAN AO*. 1 The Dominion ncome war tax Its Meaning and Application.
