Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 31, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, OCTOBER Si. 1918 Tim LET'IBRIDGE DAILY ht^Xi PAGE FIVE ACREAGE UNDER CULTIVATION or V VOtUNTEER\ 1 A5RICt;LTURM HELP i Stock Industry Needs The Victors^ Loan Over !?] 00,000,000 Will Be Required in Coming Year to Finance Exports of Sur plus Products. Sir Tliomab WUlCe, Mlaister of Fiu- be extended �when the war is over. aiicG, announced, that the mtnlmura of the New Victory IJoan is $300,000,-GOO, but his appeal is lor a much larger sum than that. In fact, the real oh-JoctiVe is $500,000,000. Beca^ge it has been necessarj' for the goveriRnent to advance large sums ot money out of the proceeds of Loan issues to finance the purchases of the British Govern- ment tn Canada, it la ot the utmostjaboul^l be sold at a good price. Last JmpofiaDce that the larger gum be " " ' ' - ' " realized. Some Huge Advances Since the beginning ot the war tHe � Govornment has advanced no less a sum than $000,000,000 on the purchases ot the British Government |n Canada. Many important industries hnve Ijeen maintained because ot theie advances. The live stock industry Is oue ot them. Lastx year the Government was forced to\advance the sum ot $100,000,000 on the purchase of hnet anji-^(5rh products. This year, if Creat Britain is to get our surplus of tlieee commodities, wo will have to extaml the same credit to the Mother- lana. AVith Her necessary war expen-,fl;tures more than $35,000,000 a day Britain finds it dtfflculv to pay cash for everything she buys. But ,we find , It'good bUBinesB to extend hi%r credits. The policy enables our producers to find ii market for their products an we are building up business tha1t will Sir Thomas White's Words In this connection it Is ivorth while quoting the -words ot Sir Thomas AVhite: "The Victory Loan (1917) mabtaln-ed the live stock market. The Government has urget^ the farmers to raise hogs. It is, therefore, vitally important that the entire bacon product year's surplus of pork and beef, valued at $100,000,000, was purchased out. right for the British government. Canadian bacon enjoys a great vogue in the Old Country, and the loss ot the British market would be � serious matter for this industry. There was danger last year ot our having to export our hogs on the hoots Instead of packing the bacon In Canada. This was averted by the Victory Loan." Then we have the testimony of Hon. T. A. Crerar, minister of agrlcuiturs, that "Practically all our bacon surplus and a large portion of our surplus ot beef must, find its outlet in Great Britain." It we neglect the British market during these days ot stress' we may lose big business later. In fact, we are sure to. There has been an increase of 470 per cerit. in the exports of animal pro-ducfs during the past four years. In 101,3 we exported a total of $29,704,128. In the past fiscal year the figures had climbed to- $142,245,193. � Don't let the Victory Lonn fall down. It is the biggest thing tor business, and all classes in Canada have felt the thrill ot the revival of trade.

(By the Associated Press) Disaster threatens the Austro-HuuKarian armies from the St. Elvio to the Adriatic as they retreat from Italian territory. AU the Italian armies now have entered the great offensive against tlio Austrians rfnd the billed troops are advancing rapidly along the entire front from fjako Clarda to the Adriatic. WEST FRONT AT STANDSTILL Fighting activity on the front ifi France and DolgUim remains at a ^'^rtual standstill. Shattered by the irresistible advance of the Italians. British and French across the Plave, the Austrian.^ are flooijig rapidly aei oss the plains of eastern Venetla towar(K,.the line of the l3nn:'.o, from which thfy advanced a year ago. American trbops are taking part in the advance of the Italian 10th army, which already has reached the outskirts of Sncllc. 15 mile.s uast of the Piavi?. The total of Austrian prisoners is approaching 40,000. "Because of our desire for iieace. our troops in Italy will evacuate occupied regions." says an official statement from Vienna night. Apparently the .\uBtfinn forces .which worn alopg Iho Piavc will havi; groat difficulty in reaching the hills east of ilie Ison?.o. Tlicy hav(! been separated from the armies in the mountains wnst of thc' Piiivc and the allies already threaten their rear from the region ot Vitlorio. Along the lower Plave, the Italian 3rd army has crossed the rivnr^ and taken up the pursuit. In the centre, the Italians have taken Oderzo. while tu.'-ther north tliey have advanced beyond Vittorlo in the direction of Beluno. AUSTRIANS IN SERIOUS PLIGHT In retreating across llie plains over the miles between the Piave and the fsoiizo, the Austrians rush backward as through a narrow hallway walled in on the north by the Carnic Alps and on the south by the Adriatic. The situation of the Austrians guarding the Trentino along the front from the west of Lake Garda to the Pi.nve also is becoming serious. Between the Brenta and the Piave the IG Austrian divisions operating there have been cut oft by the capture of Valda Pass. Elsewhere on this front the Austrians must retreat northward through the Alps with the Italians, British and French at their heels. If. as reported, the Italians arc attacking from St. Elvio southward to Lake Garda, as well as eastward from the lake, the allies iuivn begui'. the familiar pincer movement tn tlip Trentino.
