Fraser of the Mountain Smiitorium, Hamil- ton, will submit to the parliamentary committee on soldiers' civil re-estab- lishment today hia proposals for pro- viding a future home for returned sol- diers who have tubercular trouble. The scheme is along the lines of the Garden colony in England.

Mr. Fraser is taking over a farm near Dunilas, ideally sittiau-d for the treat- ment of lung diseases, where he will house and provide work for thw 45 patients, ut-der medical supervision. These men are all married and their families will go with them, houses being built under the Dominion hous- ing' scheme for each patient. It is underHtooil that the Ontario Kovorument will prnvido a community ball. There will be a toy workshop and the doctors will exnmjne the men and decide how many hours daily each will be able to work. Mr. Eraser ask the government to provide the'money to make up i'or losses in the operation of the factory due to the tact that tho working IIOUTH be necessarily short as compared with ii factory run ou a commercial basis. It is hoped that the federal RevernmeiU will pass legislation to establish a community of this kind in o'i'-h province for tubercular: relumed men.
