Buchanan John Torranco Managing Director Business Manager THE PRESENT SITUATION Yesterday's report of the breaking of the Allies' line between Nlouport and Dlxmude appeared a disquieting item of news. Whether this has been temporary, or whether the gap allows of an advance to Dunkirk, has yet to be proved. This success for tlie tin] being explains the evacuation of tlie Belgian fortresses of Antwerp, -N'amur and Liege by tlie enemy for cone-' iratlng all his available force on the vital line of battle. But once near tlie coast British naval tactics are bound to prevail again as they did before, and the fire of the British monitors have to be reckoned with. The German attack is one of des Iteration. The enemy is fishting against time, depending for his sue- t-ess on UN? hurling of big battalions. But the process cannot Inst for long. In their tactics, it is reasonable to Eay, that the Germans nre losing something like five to one of the Al- lies. Reports of the British wounded are illuminating as to their method of attack. It is stated they advance la close formation three deep against tile single extended line of the Allies. blow a road through said LIEUT. A. E.

PRAISES WILD LAND TAX Criticism of the wild land tax, ii by. tlie Legislature at its recent session, has not been apparent iu the public press. On the other hand com- mendation is coining from unexpected sources. The Moose Jaw News, one of the most pronounced Conservative papers in Saskatchewan, reviews the Act at some length and concludes its witt- this tribute: Legislation of this nature de- serves tc succeed. It strikes at the root of a great economic evil, the existence of vast areas of un- cultivated land. These are a heavy toll upon industry; they re- tard development and make it doubly heavy for the enterprising and industrious members of the. community to make such way as they have a right to as- pect. "THE BETTER FARMER" The state of North its largest city to its smallest garden the present time with the slogan, "Better Its of co-operation among the fanners and the business men, la an example that Western Canadians might well take to heart. Its present state of development has not foeen arrived at all at once, nor without effort For. three years or more It has oeen -growing: in .volume, and'in Jiracthml application. Last week "informal commission of formed under .the. initi- ative of the Canadian Credit ITeh's Association, went from "Winnipeg to Korth Dakota, to study the methods of the "Better Farming Association." Thev found, not onlyreo-operation fai tween the farmers and the business men, but a strong tie developing be- tween the tanner and the banker, the demonstration farm, the state and federal governments, and such 'bet- terment factors as the agricultural es- tension branches of the Great Nor- thern Railway, tile Northern Pacific Railway, and the International Har- vester company. The Winnipeg Free Press has this to say of the state, itself, and of the -work being done by this progressive organization: Until recently, right along from the days of first settlement, farm- ing in North Dakota had been sjnonymous with wheat-mining. Wheat-sick lands which in years yielded 20 to 28 bush el i per acre now ordinarily give only 12 to production which, ex- cept at famine prices, spells pov- erty to the farmer. ".Departmental blue books and college 'bulletins had tor years been pointing out the too often m such dry-as-dust-fashion that the pam '-phleu' chief tine was for kindling "tanners' lignite tret. Tlie great- er pffectlveni-M of new educative methods over th'e old l> striking If shown In the territory sur- j rroundlDg Williston, .where a .state been the one and only crop, must per- sonality he injected into the message which the business man endeavors to convey to the tiller of the soli. Ninety parts personality to ten parts agri- cultural science, about the right proportion. Agricultural colleges may i issue volumes on the value of diversi- fied farming, but one personal object lesson counts' for infinitely more than all the dogmatic treatises in Christen- dom. If .the business man can get out and show a fanner who is ponder- ing over.'an 11 bushel crop of dirty "wheat, how liis neighbor raised 35, simply because he tilled the land cor- with to a pro- recUy, or followed hoed crop .wheat, which is almost equal summer-fallow, a start toward gress has ibeen siade. Crop rotations will follow, alfalfa will be amongst them, and live stock will, as sure as night, follows day, figure in the pro- easion. Fortunately for all concerned, the Provincial Department of Agriculture has recognized the value of this per- sonal equation, and perhaps in Al- berta more than in any one of tile other western provinces, there is a start made along the lines pursued hi Dakota. We have the United Farm ers of Alberta, and the Farmers' Co- operative Elevator company, in add! ion to the Provincial Schools of Ag riculture, which happily spend more of their time talking to the farmer, ban they do In issuing -bulletins. What we want to accomplish Is, not the raising of less wheat, but the lising of more, through rotations which include corn and alfalfa. With stacks of alfalfa and silos of com, the ive .stock end of the business will tiks care of itself, and the wheat which is ever the ready-money- maker, will yield until our store- houses will have to be enlarged.

In addition to the danger from reserv- ists in the country over whom It felt there should be stricter surveil- lance, there is the Question of feeding the Auitrla.ns and Germans who are out of work. Big employers of labor have been dismissing their unskilled laborers of these nationalities, and' they find difficulty In securing work. The government refuses to allow them to. leave the country so that tjie pro- blem of feeding and keeping them must be faced. Officials of the labor department are investigating at the present time to find out how many alien enemies are employed in the larger cities. They may be rounded up and placed In concentration camps. It is estimated that there are from fifty to a hundred thousand Austrian and German aliens in Canada at'the present time. A thorough search for weapons It be- ing made, and it is likely they Trill be aH compelled to register.
