Oct. who thrive on tlin boxing game judiciously locided to keep out of the g are ol mbliclty last week. And wel they did, for there was little space left to chronicle their deeds and m sdceds with the world's baseball series en- grossing the entire continent. While there will lie little actual ac- tivity in the pugilistic game for a few day- there are one or two little rint matters that will hold the attention of the ,ast day of Ihi" this gr.

(From Our Own Correspondent) Barons, Oct. have had an other week of good threshing weath er, and a good deal of ground ha been cleared. We should say tha well on to one-half of the crop ha been threshed. The yields conlmu lo maintain the high record set at the beginning, many stubbled-m fields being reported at 30 bushels to the acre and summer-fallow forty to fifty. Most of the wheat is grading No and 3 One carload shipped by Lee Wilson through the Alberta Pacific Co graded No. 1. This is the first car we have heard of grading No. 1 this year As yet there is no serious shortage of cars for shipping. A great deal of ground is -being fall ploughed the conditions for this being very fav orahle. Farmers say that Ottawa, vjui., iy appointed directors of national ser- vice who have been in conference m Ottawa for the past three days, gave lit this evening a summary of their onclusions and proposals in regard to and means of 'utilizing Canada s nan power lo the best advantage for he- rest of the war. There are four main recommenda- ions In the first place an inventory s to be made of the man power still eft In Canada classified as far as pos-' ible Individual aptitudes or national service and according to lational economic needs. The deiails is to how this big task is to he worlied out are still under consideration. In he -ectmd place the director in each is empowered tr grant certifi- cates and badges to men who offer te enlist for active military service, out who are declared to be giving great- er value to the State by remaining at worlc in their own occupation. In the third place men who hereafter enlist and are afterwards found by the dis- trict director to be more needed in their old occupation may be released from the military forces to resume that occupation. The fourth mam recommendation is for the establish- ment of a women's national service hoard with a view to registering avail- able supplies of woman labor and se- the proper distribution of that labor to fill the gaps left by the en- listment of men.
