Buchanan John Torrance Director Business Manager Your King and. Country Need You Right Now ROUND THE CIRCLE OF THE WAR The refusal of the United States to condone the British blockade of Ger- many, and her decision to protect the trade of her people with belligerent countries as well as neutral countries, is a nevr feature of the war situation Tvhieh is causing speculation. Not a little surprise is occasioned in Kugland by the attitude of the United States government, which the Eug- Jish believe is a result of the failure to .realize the true situation. The German and Bulgarian forces Serbia have united, and now occupy more than half of that little country. The French have made progress as- i ainst the Butgars in the south, and are now fighting on Bulgarian soil. The formation of a new Greek cab- inet is under way, but it depends on the attitude of former Premier Venl- zelos whether the new government will oe able to stand. Two steamers of" British lines were torpedoed ytsterday. A small Ger- man cruiser was sunk off the coast of 3weden. THE ARGUMENTS --AGAINST FREE WHEAT Secretary Watts of the Canadian association says free wheat would mean low prices. That is cullers' view. On the other hand, all the farmers' 'organizations, are of the solid thinking farmers of th'e west, demand free wheat The> say it would mean a competitive mar- ket and better prices Now, if the price becomes lower it won't be the miller who will suffer, hut the farmer.

By argument I mean something that appeals to and influ I ences those to whom the argument is directed. Here are the arguments against free wheat: 1. The milling interests now gel j. their wheat for milling cheaper than the American milleri by 6 to 10 cents bushel, that is 15 to 25 cents en the 2% -bushels required to make a pound sack of flour. The miliera sell their flour locally at a higher price ihan the American millers ee'il theirs locally, and in. the British and other outs'de .markets, ivhere Canadian'.and American flour is sold In competition the Canadian millers have this -advan- tage .of 15 to 25 cents per sack."

He lives with them, eats with them, talks with .them and feels with them; he is one them, they made him, they, keep him where he is; If he decided for free wheat against the instructions of the interests he wouldn't last a month. It is not to Mr.. White or the government that 4he argument has to be directed; it is to the interests behind Mr. hind the government. The only argu- ment that can be made to the inter- ests that will affect them is that there is danger.of their losing control of the situation Tne only man that can take the control of the situation out of. their hands is the farmer, and the Jarmersfare. wholly disunited; there is no. danger from them.
