CANADA PASSED REASON Canadian manufacturers -would not undertake the manufacture of fuses. They didn't know how and they hadn't the machinery. What more natural than that the fuse contracts he award- ed in the United States? That is the burden of the eicuses heing offered In Ottawa for the plac- ing of orders in the "United States, with mushroom companies, for of fuses had been awarded to Canada by the British gov- ernment. It is being echoed by every hide-bound Tory paper in Canada in the hope that the unthinking will swallow It holus bolus. But the excuse -will not stand in- spection in the light of facts. In the first place the contract "was awarded to a mushroom American company did not hare even a factory to start with, and money had to be ad- vanced on the contract -with which a factory might be equipped and put in operation. And this despite the fact that a Canadian concern, the Russell Company, had its plant ready to make luses and had asked permission to tender on a contract for a million it could have delivered within comparatively short time. But more serious, if possible, is the fact that the British government had its own agents in the United States- Morgan had been author- ized to make the necessary purchases of'war materials in that country. Why, 'if Canada could not supply fuses, was not the British government apprised of the fact and allowed to placa the order direct through Morgan Co.? Why was Sir Sam Hughes so anxious to allow Col. J. Wesley Allison to in- Tade the States with Canadian con- tracts in his pocket when Morgan Co. were the British agents in that country? Why all the anxiety to han- dle contracts awarded to Canada after investigation had to the evidence so far Cana- da could not fill the contracts? These are the questions on which j the Meredith-Duff commission will have to satisfy not only themselves but the people of Canada. These are the questions to mind while reading the daily reports of the evi- dence given before the commission.

If you are not in the fight- ing line you may be in the producing line. Labour is the more reason to do more than ever before. Grow food for the men who are fighting for you. The Allies need all the food that you can produce. Every little helps.' You are responsible for your own work. If you cannot produce as much would like, produce -all you can. Work with the right spirit.' Put fighting energy into your effort and produce now when it counts. The more produce the more you can save. Producing and saving are war-service. Make Your Labour Efficient In war-time do not waste time and energy on unim- portant and unprofitable work. Ecdnomize labour. Put off unproductive work till after the war, and, if possible, help in producing something needed now. Let us not waste labour. Canada needs it all. If possible help to feed the Allies. Make your backyard a productive garden. Cultivate it with a will. Make your labour count for as much as possible. Do Not Waste Materials There should be no waste in war-time. Canada could pay the annual interest on her war expenditure out ___ of what we waste on our farms, in our factories, in our homes. Every pound of food saved from waste is as good as a pound of increwd production. The way for a nation to save is for every individual to save.
