But���our farms are badly undermanned���25,000 men are needed on  the land.  With insufficient help, the Man on  the Land fights an uphill fight to  meet the pressing need for Food.

Farmers themselves can exchange  labour.   School boys can assist.  Were you raised on a farm? Can you  drive a team? . Can you handle fork  or hoe? If you can't fight, you can  produce.

The  political tempesta aad bean tollowed by  another revolution in whioh the modern inventions oi steam and eieotricity  had brought about great ohanges in  industrial systems. The expansion of  trade and commerce had also brought  the nations of the East and West  nearer together. From the four winds  of heaven cams representatives of the  dillerent nations to Japan with merchandise and gold seeking to establish  commercial relations.  Japan's first suspicions oi tha foreigners who invaded her shores hs attributed to the machinations oi the;  Dutch, who desiring a monopoly of  Japanese trade, poisoned the minds of  his people against tha other western  raoes, and to the greed and overbearing manner of ths early merchant settlers, who, while they sought to fill  their purses at tha expense of tha Japanese; insisted upon treating thsni as  an inferior raoe. Later they had oome  to learn that these men wet* aot altogether typical oi their notions, but  that there were other men oi honor  and integrity and greater breadth ol  mind.  Japan's own politioal revolution ho  dated from the visit to the country of  United States warships under Commodore Perry in 1853. This display ol  western power had given an Impetus  tothe overthrow ol the ancient feudal  'system and the adoption oi a form of  'democracy. This was followed by another revolution oi adifferent kind,  which was not confined to industrial  affairs alone, but embraoed new ideas  in philosophy and adence, Japan's  ablest sons were sent abroad as amis-1  snries to study in the universities and I;  become good oitizons and follow the  Canadian mode of living, unless they  are given the rights of Canadians'!  The government is therefore asked to  give the franchise on the same terms  as to white men and women.  Another resolution from the League  deals with the rights oi a mother to  her own children. As the law stands  at present tbe mother of a legitimate  child has no right over him or her  during; the lifetime of the father. As  the experience of many American  states has proven that the mother is  as capable of guarding the child as  the father, the-League requests that  legislation bs passed making fathers  and mothers joint guardians of the  persons and propety of their children.

We would ask each scout to lei  his patrol leader know immediately whelhei he wishes lo take advantage ofthe Easter holidays in  enrlravouring to pass his "hike"  t��.st (or the first-class badge, or  whether he would preler to go on  a troop picnic. Let your leader  know immediately and can we  then decide what we shall dr.  ihe. Easter holiday gives a splendid chance though of trying the  "hike" test and doubtless several  of the troop will take advantage of  lhe holiday to try. A scout must  go on foot, row a boat or paddle  a canoe, alone or with another  scout, to a point 7 miles away and  return again, or if conveyed by  any vehicle (railway and automobiles not allowed) or animal,  must go a distance of 15 miles and  back (mileage in a city not counted). He must wiilea short report  (not essay) of lhe journey, showing observation, self-reliance and  initiative, and should take two days  lor the journey.  A great many people have been  wondering as to the reason for the  great retreat of the Geririans on  the Somme Front. Wc, at any rale,  Save no doubts as to the real  reason for all of this! Scout  Robert Stillingfleet has enlisted in  the B.C. Horse, with the intention  of learning to play the bugle and  then becoming bugler for the detachment of 2nd CM.R.'s at Ver.  non. We are only sorry that  Scout Stillingfleet is not close  enough to the Germane at the present time to enable them to hear  his blasts on the bugle, which we  are sure would make them run  faster than ever. We shall miss  our "Bob" very much indeed,  especially at camp, bul perhaps he  will be able to get leave this year  for sufficient time to be able to join  us again. He made puite a reputation last year in scaling rocky  slopes, and as rear guard of the  mountain squad.  On Friday of this week at 7.15  the smaller members of the troop  will have a basket ball match, and  at 8 o'clock the bigger boys. If  you want to play you must be there  on time.

In an effort to secure accurate  information regarding the labour  required in the district during the  coming season, so as to make provision against a possible shortage,  the United Farmers have issued  printed forms to the farmers of the  district which they are requested  to fill in and return to the secretary  Mr. R. L. Dalglish. The form provides space for stating the probable  labour required for the different  months from April to October  The circular is also designed to  secure a reliable estimate of the  crop of fruit and vegetables which  may be looked for, so that arrangements can be made with the C.P.R  to provide cars sufficient for moving it and obviate the tie-up which  has caused much loss to growers  in the past.

Private Elwood Fleming, of the  Army Medical Corps, returned to  Victoria Tuesday, his period of  leave having expired.  In view of the approaching departure of the Clever family for  Saskatchewan a surprise party met  at the home of Mr. and Mra. W. G.  Sehell to take leave of Mr. and  Mrs. Earl Clever. The members  of 'he Women's Institute presented Mrs. Clever with a brass jardiniere as a token of appreciation  of the good work she has done  as president of that organization,  while on Saturday Earl Clever was  the recipient of a handsome briar  pipe in a case, given by some  friends who gathered at Clarence  Duncan's. There were many expressions of regret at their leaving  the district, and hopes for their  success in the new home to which  they were going. Mr. and Mrs.  Clever left by Wednesday morn,  ing's boat. .  ELLISON BOY KILLED  The news which fcame in last  Saturday morning that Clarence  Whittaker had been killed in the  trenches came as ��a great shock,  especially to Ellison and Rutland  people, to whom he was well  known. Only a few days before  word had been received that he  had been slightly wounded in the  wrist, and apparently the wound  had been of such a nature as to  permit of his returning almost immediately to his duty in the trenches. .  The young man whose name  has thus been added to the lengthening roll of those who have given  their lives in their country's service  was the only son of Mr, and Mrs.  Geo. Whittaker, who have been  resident in Ellison for a number of  years. He was only nineten years  of age, having joined the local  contingent about a year ago. He  had been a pupil of Kelowna  High School and was well liked  by his fellow students. Always to  the fore in the games and sports  of the boys he look a keen interest  in the school baseball league.  The keenest sympathy is felt  with Mr. and Mrs. Whittaker in  their great loss.

In the  meantime, on the British front, the  fighting is still ofthe open variety,  as opposed to the masses of men  now coming to grips in the French  sectors.
