PAGE EIGHT THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY IIERALD SATURDAV. ,SEPTEMBEft 14, 1918 OF INTEREST TO THE FARMER PROBLEMS OF THE ORGANIZED FARMERS (Some Nuts to Crack, by the TJ. P. A., by S. S. DunhRm, Ex Vlce-Pres.) H�s the V. Fi A. no questlonB to �olve except those of an economic or comsiercisl nature? How about an honest and competent enforcement of the law. We claim to live In ft democratic country under ieinocnrtlc rule. W4. the people, claim � to be the makers of the law. If the la^w Is not satisfactory it Is not our own tanlt? We control, or should control, the machinery for making the law. By we, r ia�Aa the people, and the U. F. A. Is an Important Ingredient of the people. . la. *nch a government as ours it i.s fundamental that when the law is inade It should be enforced. Indeed there,is. ho better way to get rid of a bad law than to rigidly enforce It. So that in a democratic form of gov-�mn)ent it becomes of primary import-Ance that the law be obeyed by all lelements of society. In this agricul* turat province the U. F. A., the ver-JtabJe salt of ^e earth, so to dpeak. Should speak with no uncertain voice sn.tbis question. As we have heretofore mentioned the TJ. P. A. is largely responsible for Ihe present Liquor Act. Is it to be en-Jorced ? Already it Is becoming the I �ommon jest of the street. Are we as ^ jin organlzatton going to tolerate a half hearted enforcement of this im-.^wrtant measure? It is immaterial in this connection whether we Individ Bally supported the act or not. When *ny,measure becomes law, we, as an organization, should stand for Its enforcement, otherwise it is useless to ^iuske laws. The officers of our government should know that the organization stands for enforcement, and enforcement of the law as it stands is, the only healthy view that any iftficer can take of his duty. In this connection the V. F. A. hbuld be active in more than one particular. We cannot avoid having some Bympathy for the man who steals bread for those .who are dependent upon him and are hungry, bat we have no sympathy for the man who passes over our farm and steals our flouble-trees or our wrenches from onr machine, or pilfers simply he-e&use he has. an opportunity, and yet tuch sort of thing Is only too com-Inpji. The birds and game oa our farih Are an asset., We admire the man Who enjoys an hour now and then with the gna, but we have no sympathy for the man who kills game out of sea-son'and who trespasses upon andther man's.land and shoots his stock without permission. We realize that there is no harm in a gathering of friends whiling away an hour occasionally at a game of cards, but the gamblers den, which can be found in many looahties and Into wh.V;h the innocent are beguiled and robbed, muse not be tolerated. And in this connection what do we think of "segregated areas" In our cities where moral vice is permitted. Are wo going to tolerate such open violation of the law? Wo believe that It is up to us to .re-(luW-e that eur cities, which cl.iini our patronage, should be made clean. And we do not blame any farmer w!io refuses to trade In any city that tolerates gambling dens and "segregated areas.'.' These practices have no place in a democracy such Ss. We are strlv hi? to build. The U. F. A. cannot afford to he asleep on these vital matters, and we should so express ourselves that governments, cities, officials and the public generally cannot misunderstand the ntlitudf) of our organization in re-' latton tliereto. In these matters the v.'ork is ti oommoa one, and like the builders of the Wall of Jerusalem, each member and each local must work "over against his own house," in Jiis own community, do his part to make his own portion of the prov nice clean; nevertheless among the resolutions that are passed by the convention as a whole should be res olutions bringing the forco of the organization to bear towards the obtaining of theso objects generally. Think' it over, and it .vou agree with the writer,-tako the matter up in your community and your local and see that resolutions are presented before the convention that Avill place the organisation on record, so that all may understand its attittide in regard to those important matters. 10 GEI MUNICIPAL ISTRICIFORID EISI OSPITA PROPERLY RST BE SUBil R^k Li ce!

IJ* SOS let M. Katt. CALGARY (Edmonton Journal). Realising that there is still ponsid-erable .misconception regarding the steps to be taken in the formation of municipsl hospital districts, Hon. George P. Smith, who, as first minister of public heaith for the province, organized the work to its present state, has given the following interview on the subject. It had been the intention of the department to get out pamphlets on the matter but up to the present there, has not been an opporttmlty to do this. Mr. Smith finds that there are many people who believe that the department just goes in without any request on the part of the community, forms up the hospital unit and then turns it over to the municipality to i!inan.ce as best they may. He feels he cannot too strongly conti-o-vert this notion. The people must themselves sise up their own situation, suggest houndaries to include districts that will work harmoniously together and then bring their proposition to the government. The gov-�ridnmt can then batae in and help the organization, hut the people themselves circulate the petitions to have the district organized. Another misconception that the department often has to right Is the idea that the plans that have been prepared for the assistance of the districts must he taken in toto. These plans, says Mr. Smith, have been prepared hy the department as a guide both as to lay out and as to price. They do not have to use them, the only reservation that the department makes in this respect is that the plans to be used mnst he acceptable to the department. They may be modifica-ttone of the plana offered by the department, or they may he entirely different, but so long as they are con-�idered suitable they will be passed. Provide for Cottage Hospital-There were originally three plans offered by the government, hut these the minister has had modified to suit �ereni! needs. These plans are a-t-tfaetlve and are of the cottage hospital order with separate isolation ward and . so on. New plans were drawn up, however, which are altogether different in character and while possibly not so attractive from the outside, they are still very suitable and convenient as well as less expensive. There are altogether now six separate and distinct plans for submission to the people interested, and each of these is espable of such variation and extension as will add several other beds, or give different accommodation, according to the requirements of the district This may be done by a minimum of disturbance to the original nnit. Also by providing outside accommodation for the nurses-which can be done at mere trifle as eom- two-bed separate isolation building, and the estimated cost is $20,000. To this there is a "special" plan prepared as a cheaper alternative to N'o. 1. Tt U cheaper largely in the architecture and finishing and the kitchen is in the basement, instead of at the fear of the hospital. It preserves the original style -of arfchitec-ture but can be erpcteci at an estimated cost of S17,-)00 and has accommodation fdr ten beds. No. 2 is an IS-bed hospital with a four-bed separate isolation building at an estimated cost of $27,000. No. 3 is a ."iO-bed hospital with a 6-bed separate isolation l5uilding, at an estimated cost of $43,000.. . Ma'kes Cost Much Less. It may be mentioned in passing that the above cost, inclildea a complete lighting, heating and sewage disposal system. If the hospital Is built in a community where this service is municipally owned, the cost of the building is reduced by several thousand dollars. "Series B." is a cheaper form of architecture and entirely different from the cottage type. It Is slightly less attractive from the. exterior but there is no waste space and it is very convenient and satisfactory. No. 1 o� this series is a 14-bed hospital with an estimated cost of $19,-400 and No. 2 is a 22-bed hospital at a cost of $32,000. In the former case the hospital accommodation can be increased from 14 to 20 by finding outside quartern tor the nurses and the accommodation in Xo. 2 may be increased from 22 to 32 in the same way. and there is no change in the price of building the hospital. As will be seen the podsibilties of changing the accommodation by the addition of a wing or two wings or in other ways are considerable, and the cost can in this way be spread over a number of years, or the accommodation may be increased as it is required by the district. Mr. Smith feelS that he has met the people as much as possible in the preparation of these plans. They give every assistance in the way of ideas ^and estimates and he endeavored to make them as practical as possible. He has gone to considerable pains to have the various medical associations and nursing associations throughout the whole province examine the plans and make suggestions and the wishes of these organizations have been fully met. ? �- ? .> FALL RVE.FOR SPRING , ? i* , CRdrk FAILURE. ? ; .(Paniifflr'il Advocate.) ? � ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

I believe there are some farmers \Vho feel a little doubtful about fall rye, as by many accounts a good number o� acres of it have been plowed � up this year, but I feel sure the cailse of it being winter-killed In most cases was owing to the seed not being sown early enough ia,st year, and in some cases the land.inra."! notin good enough condition.
