"The housing loss reported bv us in our advertisement is the toll of lost production caused by this illegal strike." Meanwhile, only minor develop- ments formed the strike picture as the B.C. lumber industry was tied up for the sixth day.

May ever since Prime Minister Macken- zie King announced about a year ago that he would not contest an- other general federal election has been corridor gossip ia parlia- mentary circles on just when will step out of the political pic- ture. The latest such gossip aasons back-beach liberals is that Mr. King vrill resign as prime minister within a year, appoint Justice Min- ister St. Laurent to succeed him in tha post, and continue to sit liberal member for the Ontario rid- ing of Glengarry. Those liberals claim that a date for the national Liberal convention likely will be announced simultane- ously with Mr. King's resigrsauon. The" party leader chosen by such convention would be groomed be- fore the nest general election. Mr. St. Laurent, who accepted the justice department post in 1941 oa the condition that he would have to serve for the war years only, would not- contest the nest election, but with Mr. Kin? would stump for the new party leader.

The formation of our natural gas is still a matter of geolosical opinion; but its existence as vital factor in Alberta s pros- perity is a fact Settlers in the Medicine Hat district discovered natural gas in 1885. when drilling for water. Today, a thriving city of persons, and the glass, tile, brick and pottery industries at nearby Redeliffe are served from a gas field 90 miles square. And what Natural Gas did for Medicine Hat it also did for many'other Alberta towns and cities. Since that first accidental, discovery, new fields have been proven in many parts of the province. At the present time a network of pipe lines serves almost homes in four cities and 22 towns. This sum- mer additional lines will be extended to' serve Camroje, Weiaskiwin, Ponoka, Lacombe and Red Deer. ALBERTA HAS VAST RESERVES Wastage, so prevalent during trie pioneering years of natural gas de- velopment in Alberta, has been curbed, and today the province takes inventory of the treasure in its basement Tne inventory shows that we have greater reserves of gas than any other similar aree in the British Empire. Nearly a thousand billion cubic feet, enough to last 50 to 100 years are already in prospect from proven fields at Viking-Kinselia, Turner Valley, Foremost and Bow Island. Other vast reserves, not yet accurately tested, are in prospect from the Steveville, Dead Hoist Coulee, Eagle Butte, Jumping Pound and Pelican fields.
