War and famine and pestilence may ravage the world, but these misfortunes seldom ever reach the farmer to make him suffer. He may have lean years, but he also has fat ones and his larder is never empty. He has problems to solve and sometimes they are difficult, but Who has none? The safest, soundest, most healthful, most assured and independents life in the world is tliat of the Canadian Farmer. Why not give your boy a chance to see whether he will like the life or not? Why not have him enroll with, the Soldiers of the Soil for a few ' months and learn a little of the work and the Uie. While at the same time he helps Canada to meet this, the most serious food crisis of the war? Every boy, besides earning falrwages, will be decorated by the Oominioa of Cai^ada with a Bronze Badge of Honour. Enrollment begins on March 17th and continues for  week. Enroll with'High School Teachers, Y. M. C. A. Secretaries, Boy Scout Masters and others. Don't forget Canada wants 25,000 boys from 15 to 19 years, inclusive, for the Soldiers of the Soil.
