Of these tthe third is as Important as any. For If Canada had been enable to. gratat credits to certain of .the allied govern, ments for the products thiiy needed, all the aKgreasJvBneab.^iihlbited' by native business ment in drumming ijp I'Orders 'would have gone largely fr naught. ..(Wlie9~ Canada, smote the' rock of her savings and h^r credit), and thus drew forth the tiundreds of millions that have bees siibscrlbed to her war loans, she solved the prob lent of making the *Meels of her in dustrlos huni during war time, jiist as truly as Moaei solved the children of Israel's water scarcity problem 1>y smiting the rock iii the wildemessj This' ahViil^" be 'tfiBrough'ly realized and borne In mind, for, undoubtedly by this method, many of Canada's future development problems will have to be solved.

In this statement there is not the least exaggeration, as those acquainted with the facts well know. In the production of shells" Canadian plants arie gettijjg- better results for the units engaged tban are those south of the boundary line. In tlie delivery-of airplanes the Canadian Aeroplanes' factory has done what the best Amerl; can experts considered impossible. So when it coines to doing things, whether on the battlefield, or in'ihe workshop, the Canadian today may proudly claim for his country,rVsUlts.wh^ph In proportion to ttae.nupiber engaged, challenge comparison with any country. . Achievement In.Shipbuilding Shipbuilding jaffords a splendid ex-ample of what has been done. A good many years ago the building of wooden;ships was an-important industry in the Martime Provinces, as much as 45,000 tons of new shipping having been' produced in a, year.

But it was not until, the Imperial Munitions Board; .undertook to plaice contracts for vbsiiels that the shipbuilding Induatrr from the Atlantic to' the Pacific began to make the strides that has distinguished it during the last two years, Following the Board the^ Dominion Gov emment launched a program, which will probably keep the shipyards ot the Dominion'busy for some years, even should peace come at once.
