The Canada Food Board wants 25,000 boys years, inclusive, to enroll in the Wheat w Soldiers Of the Soil The reason why the Canada Food Board wants them to enroll March 17th to 23rd is so that Canada's farmers will know they are going to have the help of 25,000 sturdy^ willing young Canadians to raise and harvest their crops* 4 ? When they know this help is surely co Chen they can go ahead with seeding operations. And the farmers must know they are going to have help before seeding, because it would only m � be a waste of time and seed if the crops could not be harvested. Every boy's help for three months on a far should be the equivalent of the labor necessary to produce ten to fifteen acres of grain. So if 25)000 boys enrollln the Soldiers of the Soil it will mean that Canada's boys work equal to the production bushels of wheat. '-T will have performed of at least 7,000,000 Think of it boys; the chance you have to contribute this master stroke for victory.
