Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 12, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1918 PAGE THREE THAT SON-IN-LAW OF PA'S By Wellington vromtTt SHOW.IYIISHVWDEH HOUR Og SO, ou>J CHftRp M^? UhVr WWM PD�oniiiiioD educational convention thai is being held In Ottawa nboi.t the end of October. In the meantime committees are �working on other text book changes and revi.sions. Members of tlio conference present were lion. Dr. Hoclin, minister of eilu-cation, arid D. .1. Fletcher, deputy, for Manitoba; Premier W. M. Martin, minister, and D. P. AloColl. deputy, for Saskatchewan; Hon. George V. Smith, minister, and John T. IIobh, deputy, for Alberta; and Hon. Dr. Mclean, minister, and Dr. KoblnBon, deputy, tor British Columbia. A one-acre plot at the Ottawa Experimental Farm has 'produced " 84 of oatH this your, by tar tlie record for oats in the Ottawa district, and the main oat fleld of the farm beat all past yields with an average of 77 Jiiighela to the acre. Ottawa, Sept. 11.-A definite announcement is made by tlie department of agriculture that there is no possibility of removal or modification of tlie embargo on tlie shipments of apples and other fruits to Great Britain until shipping conditions change for the better. "Every foot of available steamship space," says the de- ' partment, "is required for the transportation of men, munitions and food." OF ACCIDENTS IN E AIR CORPS TEST HUN GOVT. ON PEACE POLICY Reichstag Majority Wants Govt. To Adopt a More Frank Attitude Amsterdam, Sept. 12.-In view of recent events, says the Berlin correspondent of the Frankfort Zeltung, in discussing rumored government changes, it is highly probable that the reichstag niajority vriil ascertain definitely whetlier the government is strong and bold enough to opeuly and honestly pursue the poiicy of peace hy understanding, based on the terms of the reichstag resolution. A lar^o section of the reichstag majority, the correspondent add,i, regard internal reforms, especially equal Prussian suffrage, as an important means of maintaining the empire's streDgtii iu the war and will, in the event of the government proving too weak, or otherwise unfitted, to champion these reforms, insist upon personal changes iu the government. EASTlWCRO Ottawa, Sept. 11.-The fruit crop report for September places the Nova Scotia apple yield at 400,000 barrels, or slightly more than half of last year's production. The emhargo on apple exports to Great Britain, the report states, is discouraging to Nova Scotia growers, hut the orchards are being kept iu good condition in view of after-the-war possihllities. Conditions In Quebec are described as "lamentable" because of the destruction last winter of old famous orchards. The hope is expressed that tho farmers will replant these orchards. In Eastern Ontario, there is a medium crop of some varieties of apples. There is also a fair crop iu Central Ontario, hut the quality Is below average. In Western Ontario, ifaJl varieties are one-haU a crop and winter varieties 35 per cent. There is a fairly good crop in the Georgian Bay district.  Early reports on the Niagara peninsular peach crop are confirmed by tho September report. Tho total yield will be slightly less than In 1917 and probably not more than 40 to 50 per cent, of an average crop. > The apple crop in tho inland valleys ot British Columbia will average about 10 per cent loss than in 1917, but is o� bettor quality and size. Pears are a very large crop, at least 50 per cent, larger than last ye;ir, whllo plums and prunes also show a big Increase, At the conclusion of the hearing of the case agaiait W. H. A. Auger, charged with the maualaughter of James Murray, ot Medicine Hat, Mag-latrato Rae remanded the accused for trial, and he was released on two securities tor $G0O0 and $G000, his own recoguizauc*. During the past few months a number of newspaper articles have appeared from time to time giving I erroneous statistics regarding casual-jiies in tho Royal Air i-'orcc Training i .Srjuadrons. The public have there-] fore received an incorrect impression. Tho following statistics show the true hi.story ot the Hoyal Air Force in Canada. For the purpose of preparing statistics, the total number of flights and casualties throughout the entire R.A.F. during a certain period was obtained. For the purpose of comparison, similar statistics were obtained from training an-uadrons operating in England. In t>e R.A.F. Canada, there were 36,253 flights, with 13,5G6 hours flying, during which there were 59 crashes, 36 o� which were admissions to hospitals. The English statistics give 9,000 flights, with 4,000 hours flying, during whicli there were 58 (practically tho same number) of crashes, 16 of which were admissions to hospital. From the above figures you will see that for four tiimes as many flights, with three times as many hour.s in the air, the number of Canadian casualties is practically the same as, the number ot English casualties. You will note that the above flights In Canada cover approximattly 813,-960 miles or ;.4 times around the globe, thus we have one fatality for 116,280 miles, for five times around tho globe. The conclusions are to be drawn from the above figures are so evident that no further explanation is required. Headquarters wish to express appreciation tor the good work completed in the past month. The province of Alberta secured more recruits In regard to the number of pilots enlisted for the west, than Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. For this reason they wish every effort made to bring this month's quota of men up to the standard reached last month.
