Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 25, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta Britain's Standard Ships in Various Stages of Construction ^o, --^a^ll^HM1 kri^ii^^^lilffl-j1 f' Jill \. . -^>iVi ft, .V* m ' I r I ^ 1% m J %4 t / If;? S i ; \ 1 | i With The British Navy in War Time THE Standardizing of Ships has been recently introduced into Great Britain, nnd the many great shipyards in the little isles are busily engaged in turning ships out just as Henry Ford turns out motor cars. The necessity for the standardizing of ships has been brought about by the1 ravages of the Hun submarine on the high sens, and every effort is now being put fo-ward by the great shipbuilders in En-gland and Scotland to cope with the loss by speeding up shipbuilding. The standardizing of construction Was consequently introduced. The accompanying Illustrations demonstrate what developments have been made, and while the war certainly has its sadness, it: has stimulated the initiative genius of the Britishers. The result of the standardizing of ships means that Great Britain can successfully defy the largest conceivable output of submarines by Admiral THpitz and his myrmidons.

CPA 5*1 f3 ' t � -it # 4t; rs/oroby' ' * r GREATLY tncrcaso.a production ot rye is one of the marked devel-opmonts of agricultural activity. tsfJ Canada in 1917 produced 3,857,00 rffeVjj bushels of rye^-a million more than in | the previous year-and while wheat '' will ahvavs be the premier crop of this country, and while Canada is still very long way behind Russia, Prance and the linited States in the produc tion of rye, there are indications that this future will see greater attention paid to tins cereal than previously. The consumption of rye bread instead of wheal, bread is given as one of the reasons for the increased production. There was a time when ignorance of its food value had created a prejudice against rve bread in the great wheat eating countries; but the necessity of conserving wheat has resulted In the adoption of rye bread, and simultane-oiif-ly. we have all discovered how palatable It is. The dining car service of the Canadian Pacific. Railway did much to introduce it to the Canadian public and to popularize its use. J he Province of Ontario was in JW17 the greatest producer, 08,000 acres being cultivated to rye, but the three prairie provinces between them were a large contributing factor, over 2,200,000 bushels being raised from 121,000 acres.-R.
