We hear great deal from some qpiarters about farmers not paying their fair of income taxes. It is the thins with some leaders of secondary industry to point to the nigh taxes they pay and the small number of farmers cus of wfeo make an income tex return at an. We also know that single persons earning a little more than tae basic iiave. daring the war years, have made their income tax contributions, de- ductible at ins source. The wage- earner has been a heavy taxpayer throughout the war period- There are a. good many fanners, especially in. tiie West, who have been suggesting that the Dominion income tax department undertake some method of collecting taxes at source" by means of imaU per- centage deduction of all sales through regular commercial chan- nels such as handle wheat, beef and tbe like. It is quite true, as Denuty Minister SUiott told the Senate committee on income tax the other day, teat a great many fanners do not come within the tax brackets because they do not earn more than yearly. But there are many other farmers who know they come into the in- come tax brackets in most years, and who woula be reliev-ed to know rna- deductions at source wouid take care of their tax requirements. We admit it is hard to arrive at a method for making these deduc- tions, g.pfl we admit also that Mr. Elliott is right in saying that col- lections would be made by many irho would act properly be retsuir- ed to pay income some method would have to be found to return tiie taxes these people have paid.

He isn't thiaimg about keeping books, and said for an attitude of philosophical detacament, tiie fact is that Mr. Garson on this occasion erred, if at all, on the side of under-statement.

Air cadet training would help to create this understanding and assure Canada continuing to occupy a leading posi- tion in aerial development. The Saskatchewan branch of the Air Cadet League is particularly fortunate in having secured Air Vice Marshal Howsam as its new chair- man. Under the very able and energetic leadership of Sir. Harry Drope, the league function with marked success during the war years. An equally effective admini- stration is now assured as long as the public support so greatly need- ed is forthcoming. Last week's an- nual meeting with reoresentatives from many parts of the province present, and with school and edu- cational authorities offering con- tinued all-out support, was a splen- did criterion of an active year ahead-for this tremendously worth- while undertaking. THAT BODY OF YOURS (JAMES W. BAHTON. J4JX) FOOD AIAERGY The four commonest foods caus- ing alergy are eggs, milk, -wheat and potatoes. Just why tne m-i- poritv of people can eat these four foods in any amount together with other -allergic" foods, and be free of symptoms while the minority must suffer with pain in stomach, head colds and weepy nose ana eyes, is unknown. That hereoity is one factor in allergy is however, known. It has beea found that where both parents were affected with allergy, the allergic symptoms in the child began beiore the fifth year in 36 per cent, whereas where only one percent had allergy 14 per" cent- were affected: and neither parent had allergy only 5 per cent showed symptoms before the fifth year. The first point la remember Is that as the food does not cause allergic svmptoms in 4 of every 5 eating it" nothing can be wrong wiih the food itself; there must be something wrong with, or some- thing different about, the allergic individual. This means that there is something about the allergic in- dividual's make-up, his tissues that prevents the proper or complete break-up and use of the food, so that, allergic erup- tions, head colds, stomach occur. :an the allergic individual out the exact foods causing symptoms yet be able to eat enough food (free of offending roods) to maintain his strength? Among the foods least likely to cause allergy symptoms as out- lined by Drs. Alvarez and Hinshaw of the Mayor Clinic, are lamb, gela- tin, cocked apples, beets, asparagus, turnips, arrow root biscuits, cooSed pears, weak tea. The foods most likely to cause allergie symptoms are onions, milk, cream, ice cream, raw apples, cooked cabbage, chocolate, radishes, raw tomatoes, greasy and rich foods, peanuts, oranges, fish, chicken, cof- fee, lettuce. Dickies, melons, pork, cheese, By eating the foods least likely to cause allergv and occasionally eating "one" of the foods most likely to do so. he may have an attack of allergy and by remember- ing foods eaten'at last meal be able to locate the food causing the trou- ble- In this way he can gradually find that many of the "offending" foods do not cause symptoms and he can thus add variety to his daily food intake.

Tr. ff _. the pressure of nublic ooinicn for not reformed. caught with huge surpluses would depress prices to ruinous levels in 1947 or IS48 and that, in the ensuing years, they would be able to adjust themselves to world food requirements without taking tne punishment to which, taej were subjected in the thirties, there would be a lot more food raised in Canada this year to feed a starving world. But they do not know. They know that the F.A.O., the the international bank and other world organizations are planning for the movement of food surpluses in the future, but they are not sat- isfied that these organizations are far enough advanced as yet to give them any assurance that they will not be left "holding the bag" if they produce to the full extent in 1945. Farming Is not like manufactur- ing. The manufacturer can size up "his market and decide just now much goods he wfll make in a. cer- tain year, based upon his past sales experience. But the farmer isn't like that. He doesn't know when he sows 100 acres of wheat whether ne is going to produce bushels or whether he will merely get his seed back. He doesn't know whe- ther the pasture is going to be good or bad, so he cannot tell ahead of time .how much beef or milk or mutton he -will produce in a year. He hopes for at least the average production based upon past experi- ence but he is foolish to count on bumper crops. W. J. Parker, president of Mani- toba Pool Elevators, spoke at Des increased. But in any event, failure, under such circum- stances, means continuing wita what has previouslv beea endured. the present instance, how- ever, this circumstance is absent.
