Mrs. Alex, femitli was the delegate from Lethbridge at this meeting. DIRECT TAXATION * IMPORTANT LAWS ? * DEMANDED BY WOMEN > L What should prove to be a very strong committee war formed by the amalgamation of. the Alberta provincial law committee of the Council of Women and the provincial executive newly appointed by the National Council which was effected on Saturday at the conference of the two committees held in Calgary. The newly formed committee consists of the provincial vice-president, Mrs. O. C. Edwards, as chairman, the president and one delegate and the convener of the law committee of each local council affiliated with the provincial council. The other officers are, first vice-chairman, Mrs. J. F. Ross, who is acting president of the U.F.W.A.; second vice-chairman, Mrs. Forbes-Reid, president of the Edmonton local council; recording secretary, Mrs. Harold Riley; treasurer, Mrs. W. B. Bellamy, Medicine Hat. The convener, Mrs. O. C. Edwards, will act as corresponding secretary. Mothers' Pensions Mothers' pensions was much discussed with varying opinions as to the advisability of introducing anything further at this time. The present plan of the government in setting aside $20,000 for mothers' pensions, was to go fifty-fifty with the municipality in needy cases, but what the council wanted was a pension for all mothers and the conference finally unanimously decided to press for definite mothers' pensions from the provincial government and on motion of Mrs. Kerby, not to exceed the allowance paid to soldiers' dependents. ' Aged and Infirm it was also decided to ask the provincial government to make some provision for the care of the aged and iulirm. The petition of the Calgary local that the provincial government provide a school or industrial home for wayward girls was endorsed. Dower Act It was suggested that legislation providing- for the voiding of a will which fails to leave one-third to the widow some sort of an arrangement whereby a certain sum be also set aside for the widow for the maintenance of the home or the exemption of a certain number of cattle, etc., as in tho case of debt, also that some provision be made for children, in addition to the one-third, would make tho Dower act more fair to the widow. It was the opinion of tho conference that a civil officer should be appointed to act in cases requiring free legal services. After a short discussion with reference to Mennonites it was resolved that the government be petitioned to enact legislation providing that uo group of immigrants should be granted special privileges. It was voted that the conference request the executive committee to petition the government to so amend the Factory act as to provide a living wage. It was also decided that the executive be requested to petition the provincial government to enact a law providing for the registration of all young girls under 18 years of age by their employers within three days of their entering their employ, and also registering their leaving within 48 hours. It was voted that the council urge upon tho local councils that they offer their services to Hie Victory loan committee ;in their districts for the sale of $10 certificates. The conference accepted the recommendation from the national council that hearty Bupport be given to the work of tho child welfare commission and that-steps be taken to co-ordinate the activities of organized and unorganized women of the province. The new executive committee will meet twice a year, in the spring and Vancouver, Oct. 0.-"Depend upon it, we are going to have direct taxation in Canada after the war. I see no other way in which tho money we shall need can be raised. The wealth of this country must contribute to tho nation's expenditures in a greater degree than In the past." said Hon. F. B.. Carvell, minister of public works, in addressing the Vancouver Canadian Club this afternoon. Mr. Carvell pointed out that Canada must raise after the war twice as much money as before the war, since pensions and interest on the national debt alone would account for more than the ordinary national expenditure during peace times. This necessity must involve revolution in the Canadian financial system and there must be a complete change in the plans for carrying on public works.. "We are not going to spend money where it is not needed," he said. The minister said that in the course of his trip nothing had impressed him more than tho wonderful natural resources of northern Alberta and northern British Columbia. He said that in the Peace river country he saw wheat threshing forty bushels to the acre and oats 125 bushels. The country was prosperous, he said, and there was a greater degree of prosperity hi eastern Canada than had existed before in his life time. The government, said Air. Carvell, had devoted considerable attention to the labor question in Canada. There had been a good deal of agitation, but. he believed better relations existed now between labor and employers. "I can quite understand," he said, "labor saying that if the capitalists are going to make all they can out of the war, labor is justified in making all it can." Many of the capitalistic class hadimade more out of the war than they were justified in making, he declared. FISH BULLETIN PRIZE FISH EATERS. Issued By Canada Food Board. The food board is asking Canadians to eat mora fish but inure-, are two chaps at Jarge who arc eating so much that war has been declared upon them and they are doomed to an early death wherever caught. Do you know then)'.' Let us introduce you to Ennietopias Stelleri mid tween tho city and Dauntless and two sections four miles east, all of which is being plowed ready for a crop to be put in next year. The Oakville Standard slates that S. Little, a farmer of that district threshed 1,8,15 bushels of wheat from a ."-acre field, an average of 70 bushels to the acre. The Standard believes this constitutes a new record for Manitoba. his cousin, Zalophus Californianus. They roam up and down the western ocean and are alleged to have eaten from 200 to 400 salmon in a. day, not to mention herring and small fry of that ilk. Now no doubt you want to know just who they are-those gentlemen with the fine sounding names. Probably you have seen them at the zoological 'gardens and called them-Air. Soa Lion and Mr. Barking Sea Lion. PACKING OR HARROWING OF FALL PLOWING (Experimental Farms Note). The importance of conserving moisture has received particular emphasis because of the vagaries of last season, when no moisture fell during the early part of the year when crops were making their heaviest demand on the moisture supply, but when liberal amounts of rain came during August. This late supply of moisture, if properly safeguarded, should be available for next years growing period, and constitute a considerable assurance of prompt germination and satisfactory early growth in the spring. In order that crops may make a satisfactory beginning, timeliness in seeding is important, and the possibility of getting seed in promptly depends much on tho amount of fall work done and the manner in which this work is performed. It is important that as much fall ploughing as possible be done; that this ploughing be done to a depth ot six inches, and" that as the ploughing proceeds the days work of the plough be gone over with the packer or drag harrow. If the ploughing is left untouchod, there is too free a circulation of air through the relatively large interspaces between the soil particles, with the' resultant withdrawal of moisture from the soil to the atmosphere, where it is of no value for next year's crop. It is particularly important that the work with the packer and harrow be done promptly, for if deterred lor a few days, 'until a more convenient time,' it is possible that a windy day will witfidraw more moisture than could be added by a good shower. Such withdrawal of moisture might mean that there would be an insufficient supply to insure a prompt germination of the seed next year and such delay might mean a loss of the crop. It is im- j portant, therefore, that this work be j done as the ploughing proceeds, and j that at least two strokes of the drag harrow be given, or that the land be gone over- once with the surface or combination packer. PROPER FARMING METHODS MEAN GOOD CROPS (Medicine Hat News) That good crops can be obtained, even in bad years, is the contention of Air. J. B. Swan, if proper farming methods are employed. As a proof of his conviction six hundred acres he has in crop a little West of the exhibition grounds afford mute evidence. Three hundred and iifty acres are in flax and two hundred and fifty in oats and it is estimated that the former will yield five bushels to the acre and the latter'twenty bushels to the acre. The oats are now being cut and the flax will be cut next week. The secret of Mr. Swan's success lies in properlj^ farming the land. The crop was planted on spring breaking and the land was prepared by plowing, double discing, floating and dragging. The surface was broken up into a mulch which conserved eVery drop of rain that fell last summer. The result was that Mr. Swan has a crop-in this year of-crop failures. Mr. Swan is enthusiastic regarding the possibilities of this district as a farming centre and has backed up his opinion with large purchases of farm lands in the vicinity of the city. In addition to the section he has west of the fair grounds he has two and one-half sections be- Food Will Win the War Serve your country and yourself by raising FOOD on the fertile plains of Western Canada.
