I In Alberta this week, the Alberta Federation of Agriculture, the TJf J- and the A_T.TJ. asked for a similar investigation ia order that iarmeis might have a fair deal in the pzice-'KBge structure which is developing. They pointed to in- creasing prices lor the goods the fanner must buy and the increased wages being paid to organized labor, asked that they be pro- jected ia the matter of farm com- modity .prices. Oa several occasions rince thej push for a aew price-wage level foEowing V-J Day last August the i Herald has asked where the upward push is going to end and where fanners are going to fit into the picture. We have pointed out that, even at present farm commodity -prices, the farmers are unable to compete with secondary industry in the matter of wages, and that, therefore, farms are badly manned and unable to produce the food- etuffs lor -which the world is des- perately calling- We have also pointed out that the very fact so many farms are without elec- tricity, and all the modem equip- ment for the home and the farm- stead that goes with it, is evidence that faun incomes are not large enough to bring to the farm the amenities which the city or town I worker demands as a matter of light, and that so long as this Is the case the farm family cannot but bs dissatisfied. Figures He and liars figure. That's sn old political saying, and it is being demonstrated in some Eastern newspapers these days as they talk about meat, mOk and other farm cctamodiry shortages which are bothering the city workers. The other day the St Thomas Times- Journal, published in the hearr cf rich Elgin County, proceeded to show that the fanners have done very well in the matter of farm prices since the beginning of the war. Said the Times-Journal: Looking over the 1946 year book of the Department of Trade and Commerce, we note that the casa income from the raie of farm products in 1241 It-rose steadily each year, until ia 1944k the last year for which there are completed figures, the total rose to That is very nearly double what it; was three years before. And to what percentage have fanners' costs risen during that time? The Department Trade and Commerce says that larm operating expenses and .depreciation charges increased "much Jess rapidly by 35 per oent. iarmer, accord- ing to official ggures, is actual- ly 45 per cent better oS than he was a few years ago. At farmers' conference some speaker or speakers get uo and say tha; the farmers saus; have "higher prices. The Dominion Minister of Agricul- ture, Hon. J. G. Gardiner, speak- ing in his constJtuencv of Mel- ville. Saskatchewan, on Tuesday night, said he did not see why. if implement makers got a little more, the farmers should not get a little more also. Neither do we. But the farm- ers appear to have got- theirs first, because, according to gov- ernment oScisls, the income of Canadian fanners as a whole has risen 80 ner cent since 1941. It cannot be denied that the nrices cf farm commodities have increased: some a little, some a ereas deal, if pifces have nol gone up by 80 per cent all round, "diSerence has been made up by increased produc- tion and subsidies. Tet if we suggested to art individual farm- er that income, had been increased nearly 50 per cent he would laugh and say: 'Tin not sensing must be the other fellow." The Times-Journal admits that someone may come along with, an entirely new set of statistics to prove that the farmer isn't getting a-'sluari deaL Hers they are, taken from the February-number of thfci457ii J.J. ij MscDonald has the most sophisti- cated and polished manner cf tnera. -i!

And the fact, of the matter is that men who have returned to Canada aad dis- caarged just cannot get on wita the busiaess of rehabilitating them- selves until their wives have come out and joined them. This should be perfectly obvious to any married raaa or woman. T. have no doubt but that the re- patriation authorities are sincerely trrfng to cope with the situation, to the best of their ability. But. in spite of the large number of brides who have been brought out since Christinas, the situation is still far from good. 1 receive more letters and personal complaints about this than about all the other problems of servicemen put together. This situation is true of the Legians' offices, rehabilitation offices and all those who deal with ex-servicemen. Most of the complaints we receive now arise out cf the fact that ap- parentlv manv brides are comiag out ahead of their turn, while manv others seem to be celayea beyond reason. Some wives have arrived in Canada within three months after their husbands ar- rived, while others have been wait- ing passags for more than a year.
