Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 18, 1916, Lethbridge, Alberta SATUHDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 1910 THE HKtUU) PACK SEVEN THE PROBLEM OF THE SOLDIER AND GOOD FARMING (By G. R. Mnrnoeh, president Board of Trade, Lethbrldge, In the Financial Post) There are no royal roads hack to the land. You celt tors who Hvo near tho Ontario and Quobec farmers know Hint there In no royal road to fnl farming around your district. Rut tho public miiul is obsessed by the idea that there are royal roads to fanning hi regions "where farming has not been practised so long as It has been by farmers In tho sutiled parts of Ontario. Out in the romantic west it is thoncht, even by many poonle who live there, you have but to lot tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor and their particular niiarter section look sit each otlwr and the farmer and tho farm are mado to order, la there any other bnsinesB under the sun that has n road to it.? If so. that Is the business that the man who wants merely a change of occuoation. should take up. "To plow and to sow, to reap and mow" is not by, any means the be-all and end-ail of a farmer's life, for he has to understand 'live Block, ho has to have a knowledge of business, and ho has to plow and sow before he can reap and mow, and all of these operations must be pronerly carried out, and with due regard to the Boil and the climate; and if they are not, the would-be farmer suffers, the land Buffers, and his neighbor and, Iii3 neighbor's land suffers too. We are all very much concerned just now about the welfare of the re- turned Many wise and well- meaning people are allowing their Judgment to run away with them on a line of reasoning something Hke this: Our brave citizens who have left their vocations and gone to, the front are living an open-air life. This will unsettle them for their ordinary business on their return. Panning is nn open-air life. Canada has vacant land which can be farmed. Therefor, let us provide these men with land, and they will be farmers. It sounds so easy and so helpful; but there is the same fallacy in it that bothered the two Cockney youngsters who went to Epping Forest with one the day- in-the-country excursions from tho east end of London. "Let's go gather niufllirooinfi, "Ai'ry." "Yes, aayw Bill. "I'm a beggar to climb." The "Ready Made" Delusion H has been proposed to lay out, it not u royal road, yet an ossy road, to farming, by preparing a number of ready-made farms and supplying UIOBO with buildings a simple nature. In fact, tho Cunadinn Pacific railway in now breaking' up land for 25 such farms on their irrigable land near LethbHdge. The farms are to be of eighty acres each, and tho intention Is to establish a considerable acreage on each farm in nlfnlfa. These farms will thus be as nearly foul-proof as n western farm can be made; to plow and sow alfalfa, provided or course it is properly done, as this will be, re- quires but to be followed by the appli- cation of tho irrigation water, and tho harvesting of the two or three crops per season is not difficult to nccom- nlinli. If the soldier-applicants tor' the purchase of these farms on long. terms of" payment are carefully select-' from among men who have had previous experience with live stock, and they allow themselves to be guided by a manager on a central farm, they may, if they have a small amount 6f capital to start with, have a very fair chance to make homes for themselves on tlie land, But to sup- pose that any "great number of our returned soldiers can be easily pro- vided with farms, and so with a wave of the magic wand, made Into farm-, era, Is only to delude ourselves, j A "Ready Made" Solution Is there In all this heart-search' ing on our part in regard in our duty; to the returned soldier, another aspect of the royal road problem? Are we not just anxious to be able to see the roya! road to a ready-made answer for a very large demand that can be met after all only by the in- dividual efforts of all of our business jmen? Ready-made farms will answer the demand for only a very, very small percentage of> the returned soldiers. Another ready-made answer Is pro- posed In the transcontinental highway idea. It doesn't sound very practical, let alone practicable. The line of rea- soning here seems to be again the soldier, the open-air life, roadmaklng Feeling Fine Thank You!

The Broader Problem All of the men who hare Been life the front, and who return to Canada will be the same men who went away; they will still be bricklayers, clerks, miners, pro- cers, machinists, carpenters, agita- tors, lumberjacks, farmers, bankers and navies, as far as their working at- tainments are concerned; the differ- ences will He in their outlook on life, and in the quality of their thinking. The same quality of courage that took a man to tlie front and sustained him there may not help him in that other kind of courage that lie will want on his return to enable him to take up his dally avocation, If it is available or to otherwise fit himself to take his part as a citizen. The time that will necessarily be taken, up in the demobilization and re- patriation of the soldiers will provide opportunities for adjustment by our business men to make such alteration in their methods as will enable them to switch from war orders for muni- tions, clothing and equipment, to do- mestic lines of. manufacture; and a testing time for their courage and Initiative will then present itself. The outlook for agriculture after the war, particularly in the west, is obscure. Live stock prices seem like- ly to remain high, but wheat and other grains will certainly suffer a big drop in price. The suggestion that the moat practical way back to the land for such of cur soldiers as want to go (here, is to take employment with an established farmer, opens out many other points for far- mer's willingness to hire him; hia ability to house him, and so on. And, as far a3 agriculture in the west is concerned there are many questions as to how to connect the fanner and the helper so that the farmer will re- ceive the help, and the beginner will get experience and renumcration that are certainly not easy of solution.
