Just when they were cas^ ing about for mqana of future employment, of plants, vesfMla and men, the Canida/Food Beard wa� looking for BuppUes of cheap, for the citl-sens of the Western Provinces. It so happened that the Food Board's Chairman, Mr. Hi B. Thompson^ had Jui;t' completed a sasaion as. a: mem' ber of a Pacific'iFlsherlea Commission, and-herhad secured a.wealth of information as to the utilized fish of the Pacific Coast. These were the flat-d^lshes-^r-brlHBjrfloleflrplaice and-witches -and certain,codsrrred,cod, grey^od and ling, cod. Allthese species were to be found in Pacific waters in enor- 'oi^WAj^rNor/ 21.-Under Hon.. J, ;A.

' V" �' Mr. Meiglieil's plans, us laid before the conference;' provide that the land is to be sold fp the returned soldier or that, if neoes'sary, partly in cash and a payment down'of ten per cent, and !"oth6r assets. In addition, it is propos-,ed that the federal government shall advance td" We ' returned soldier on loan, at an'ordinary rale of Interest, up to $1,500 for the purpose of establishing a home and purchasing thra nec-and stock.

In addition, the scheme to advertise, but the unaccduritable prejudice against eating . any others fish but halibut and Bulmon' had to be overcome. The Board determined to show Canadians how these fish were caught; how they were'ifaarkex^ ed, and their food value. Capt; R' W. Wallace, of the Pood Board's Flsh^ Sectioh, took' the work In band and made two voyages on a trawler, accompanied by an expert motion picture cam&ra-man, and a lllm�-^aB prepared, which was latpr circulated throughout the West. Recipes, show-, ing how to .jjook,flat-fish vni cods, were embodied In the Board's Fish Recipe Book, and the press,w|is supplied with data, regarding them> The flsh trade loyally got behind tl^e mov^ ment and pushed the sale. K Today, seven months slnc^ tl^e first trawler fitted out, the Pacific flatfish and the Pacific cods are> prime fatorltes with the public. Ail excellent sea fish has-been the public at cheap price, and so popular have tbey become that Toronto 4nd. Montreal dealers are now importing' them by. the car-load.
