FRENCH WAR CREDIT. There seems to be no more urgehi need for war workers at the present moment than in the canneries. Indeed, a S.O.S. call -Jcomes from them for helpers. They are in full swing. Fruit and vegetables are coming in apace. But the scarcity of girls to handle them is keenly felt. A recent trip by the writer through the Niagara fruit belt clearly demonstrated that they were needed in great numbers. A good many people imagine that September practically seds the end of the canning season. This may be so in a domestic seqfee but. the regular cannery operates right through Paris.

This is an urgent call that does not permit of delay. Fruit is perishable and soon goes to waste. As much as possible of everything must be canned this year for the fruit, crop of Britain has been a failure and jam and preserves of all kinds are scarce. A forcible argument for Canada to give the best possible showing in the putting up of preserves both at home and in the cannery! expenses 191S. tor the fourth quarter of TWO SOLDIERS KILLED Los Angeles, Cal., Sept. 21.-soldiers, members of balloon compan ies at the balloon school at Arcadia, near here, were instantly killed and | them three others were injured when a quantity of flash powder exploded late yesterday.

"EDMONTON OFFICE-3 CRISTALL BLOCK. | The canning factory lias received less consideration, perhaps, than the farm and orchard where women workers are concerned, but in a district like the Niagara fruit belt, field and factory are inseparable and many of the National Service girls,who volunteered for work on the fruit farms have gone into the adjacent canneries as the season advanced. This class of girl in a cannery is a war-time experiment and one which all the enn-ners declare to be eminently successful. They used to bring over Polish women from Buffalo or else employ men. And now? Well, you find girls from Toronto University, from McGi'il, from east and from west, all working together with zeal and skill. Ask them if it is hard work and* they tell you that it is just "ripping." In almost every case they have preferred it to outdoor work. In many of the canneries now. practically all the work is done by women, a few men being kept usually to handle the machinery. They have a ten-hour day, can sit while they work and in most cases the canneries are bright, clean, agreeable buildings. The machinery is not of the noisy, trying type known to the munition worker. It is less remorseless in its drive, and the speed" with which she gets along depends entirely on the individual worker. The tomato canning season is in full swing now and girls who volunteer* immediately for this work are likely to handle them on an extensive scale. The average rate for tomatoes is 34 or 40 pails a day, after the initial plunge Which does not usually take one much past 17. As many as 15.000 cans of tomatoes are turned out each day from the average cannery and 10,000 or 12,000 cans of plums. At Niagara'on-the-Lake a number of soldiers' wives are employed in one place where 50 women turn out an average of 15,000 cans of plums a day. The work around a cannery is varied, but the girls are chiefly engaged in peeling and preparing the fruit and vegetables, and in packing the cans. The sealing is done automatically and the tins are conveyed by pulley arrangement to the steam box. thence to the retort and finally the cooker. To look at the operation it seems like perpetual motion for the cans travel up to the hand of the worker- who fills them and sends them along. In the same way, in the case of tomatoes, the pails travel automatically up to her and take their departure when she has finished peeling. There is no lifting or bending and the work cannot be The Listening Post Of Interest to Veterans. Conducted by H. P. Maddison. The following is the text of a resolution, recently drawn, up, and forwarded to the government, by the Lethbridge I>ocal of the Great War Veterans Association: It sets out, Jn no uncertain terms, the attitude of the members toward the Mennonite. The Sons of England and the various locals of the U.F.A., irre cordially invited to follow the lead. Whereas, we' the members of the Lethbridge Branch of the Great War Veterans Association view with no little alarm the settlement in our midst of a people calling themselves "Mennonites," who by virtue of certain existing statutory provisions in that behalf, claim for themselves a total exemption from all military service. And whereas, these same people, while apparently willing to luxuriate in all the benefits they derive from British government and protection, are not prepared to give anything in return, but rather persist in fostering among themselves the enemy" language and customs, on account of which we believe them to be a serious menace to all principles which tend to the growth of. a good and loyal citizenship. And whereas, there can be no doubt that their recent invasion o/ this country was occasioned by their desire to evade military service in the United | States of America, to which, by re- j cent legislation in that country, they j had "become liable. ] And whereas, their purchase of' large tracts of valuable lan'd in our; immediate vicinity, would threaten to j seriously prejudice the Tights of sol- j diers returned ajid yet to return. j And whereas, we consider that in so | licensing their existence in this coun-; try, f''ee and untrammelled from any j responsibility to the Empire, the gov-! eminent has -acted in a wholly unwar- j rentable and unjustifiable manner. ( Now therefore be it resolved, as fol- 1 lows: I i a) That the government be and I the same is hereby petitioned to so j amend the ' .Military Service Act ; 1917" as to bring within its operative ! scope the said sect of "Mennonltes" j and that they be compelled to bear I their just share of responsibility to the Empire by contributing to the Expeditionary Force such of their men as are of military age and physically fit. And (b) That the Dominion government take such stej^s as may be necessary in the promises to prevent the "Mennonites" from acquiring from the government by purchase or otherwise, land at present, or which may hereafter become vested" in the Crown, and that the same so far as is possible he conserved for the exclusive benefit said to be hard.

Why isMt that the eastern press, is still coupling the name of tbeG.W. V.A. with the recent Toronto "riots. Surely the altitude of the G.W.V.A. has been clearly explained by the Dominion convention. It is very unfortunate that tilings of that sort should be charged up to the association during the days of its youth.
