Yet. catching alli- gators has something to do with filling her pay envelope. In a little tropical town, where the sun stands straight overhead at noon, alligator sldns are a source of income. But while they can grow fine alligators, they cannot make paper. And in this far away town you will find Canadian paper being used for printing, wrapping and stationery just as it is in many other places throughout the world. So the alligator skins are shipped to Canada to make belts and bags, and this provides dollars for the tropical country to buy paper from us. That's why the little lady who types letters all day for the paper company is deeper into the alligator-catching busi- ness than she suspects. She's in the banana and pineapple business, too and many others she never thinks about. But then so are YOU for at least 35 cents ont of every dollar you earn comes because Canada buys and sells goods in other countries. Stop and think what it means. Over one-third of your income more than you spend on food for the family comes from Canadian export and import trade. HOW YOU CAN CREATE GOOD TIMES Because foreign trade plays such a big part in your life; and makes jobs and wages for you of course you will want to see it grow. Therefore if you have to wait a while, because merchandise you want is being sold abroad your patience will help. And if you happen to be helping to produce any article for foreign trade, put your best into it for it is a little part of Canada. That will help, too. Everyone icho buys or sells merchandise abroad makes jobs in Canada. That is why ice have a Foreign Trade Service in the Department of Trade and Commerce. It maintains able trade commissioners in 26 countries, and an. experienced export and import staff at head office, to collect the most up-to-date information on foreign markets and give practical help to every business thai wishes to buy or sell in other countries.
