 tCcrmTBsssa^l  Hduuma lUcvvb  VOL XI.  NO. 15  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 27, 1919.���4 PACES  Organize" Branch of  IWeraiion League  Seek Modification of Provincial  Prohibition Laws  At a meeting held last night in  the Morrison Hall the initial steps  were taken to form a branch of the  B, C Moderation League, the object of which is to secure a modification of the present prohibition  law. A provisional executive waa  elected consisting of E. M. Carruthers, president, R. B. Kerr, vice-  president, E, Murdoclc, secretary,  and W. A. Pitcairn, J. F. Burne,  H. C. S. Collett, F. F. Morrison, J.  Inglis and St. G. P. Baldwin. In  addition aome 40 or 50 members  were enrolled, and a committee  appointed to secure signatures to a  petition through which the League  hopes to induce the provincial government to accede to its wishes. It  was arranged that a further meeting be held a week from Monday  when a permanent organization  could he formed.  Briefly "stated, the Moderation  League seeke through government  stores the unrestricted sale of beer  and light wines, and the sale of  spirits to all persons licensed to  purchase them. This licence would  be purchased annually, in much  the same way as a gun licence, and  would be liable to forfeiture for  drunkenness or improper use.  Agricultural Association  Annual Meeting  Finances in Better Shape But  Enthusiam Lacking  Death Removes Twe  Kelowna Residents  Mrs. C. E. Atkins and Mrs. R.  A. Walker  At the advanced age of 86 years,  Mr. R. AJWalker. a highly-respected resident of Kelowna .for many  years, passed away Tuesday, Mra,  Walker, who was a very active old  lady in spite of her years, was well  known to many, especially ol the  older resid -nta She and her. husband have lived for many years in  their little house on Ethel street.  She waa bom in Perthshire Scot  i ,. iv, o. c. cinoir, u. c weens,  land, ana was proud of  her direct .pow,      p p WiI|i    w p  descent fromthe  old  f.mjly  of .   pfidh       G, R, Bi ^  Campbells of Bredalbane, tamed .in h���.,������  Scotch history and literary annals.  She came to Canada in the early  eighties end resided for a long  period near Indian Head. In 1904  Mr. and Mrs. Walker took up their  residence in Kelowna.  The funeral takes place to-day.  Sorrow has again visited the  home of Mr, C. E. Atkins, of Glenmore, in the sudden death Sunday  last, of hia wife. Mrs. Atkins, was  removed to hospital Saturday for  an operation, hut her condition  rapidly became more serious and  ahe expired the following day. The  funeral took place Tuesday afternoon, the remains having been removed to the home of Mrs. A. R.  Drysdale, where a short service  was held. The funeral was largely  attended.  Much sympathy is felt for Mr.  Atkins and family in their great  loss. It will be remembered.that  only a little over a year ago a  daughter, Mary, died.  Mrs. Wylie who has been visiting  at McPhees' left yesterday for  Vernon.  M. A. Alsgard left to-day on a  visit to Halcyon.  Mr. and Mrs. Broad bent, who  have been visiting Mrs. H. D. Riggs  left for Winnipeg Wednesday.  The Fire Brigade is holding a  dance Monday evening in the  Morrison Hall. Needleas to say it  will be some affair, aud the boya  are desirous of seeing everybody  who can poasibly turn out.  The K.A.A.C. started to play  basketball last Thursday evening  but then was a very disappointing  turn-up of the members, partly due,  no doubt, to the ven inclement  weather prevailing ���net the big attraction at the theatre. It is hoped  that at least enough will be out at  the practises to make up a team.  Judging bv the keenness shown by  the few who did manage to turn up  this ahould be an easy matter.  The annual meeting of the Kelowna Agricultural Association,  which was held Saturday afternoon  laat, revealed the fact that though  the financial position of the Association has been steadily improving for the past two or three  years, the interest of the farmers,  for whom the annual exhibition is  primarily promoted, shows a very  marked tendency to decrease. A  little over 25 per cent of the members during the year could be  classed as .farmers, and even the  entry list in the various classes  depended largely upon the townspeople. How to remedy this state  of things, and to stimulate a greater degree of enthusiasm in the  country districts, is the problem  before the new board of directors.  Addressing a very small turnout  of members, president E R, Bailey  deplored the present lack of interest on the part of the farmers.  There had been 141 members last  year where there should have been  a 1,000 at least, and of them only  37 were farmers. $1,400 had been  offered in prizea end only $733.50  of it won, and the entries had decreased by 63. He noted, however  that for the 74 special prizes there  had been 177 entries, showing that  greater interest waa taken in them  than in the regular list. Expenses  had been higher during the year.  Several improvements had been  made to the track and buildings.  Still, there was a surplus on hand  which lhe society wished to  serve with the idea of erecting stock  buildings, to accommodate stock  from outside points. He referred to  the excellent work done by the  Women's Institute in looking after  the needlework and other departments. _^^^^^^^^^^^^^  The balance sheet as presented  showed cash in hand of $573 as  against $215 laat vear ; $350. more  had been paid io prizes than last  year.  The following directors were  appointed : E. R. Bailey, J. Bowea,  P. Casorso, J. L Dobbin, R. Lamb-  Iv. S, E. Elliott,, C. E. Weeks. W. R.  ce, J,  ^ and M.  Hereron. ..^,I1111B,a,a,a,al.^.^.^���  Mr. Bailey, whose energetic work  as preaident waa highly appreciated, expressed a desire to retire from  that office, but was finally prevailed upon to aHow hia name to remain on the list of directors. It  was arranged to hold a directors'  meeting at a later date to elect  officers and executive.  An interesting letter was read  from Mr, Lvnn Harvey now of  Langlej Prairie, containing several  valuable suggestions. One of these  related to the appointment of  manager for the fair in addition to  the secretary, and it was decided  to take this into consideration.  $1.50 Per Annum  Democratic Organization  Hope of Future  Is Message of Leader of United  Farmers of Alberta  In fulfilment of a promise by the  promoters of the Chautauqua last  summer, one of the lecturers on the  programme who was unable to  carry out his engagement at the,!  time, Mr. H. W, Wood, president  of the Canadian Council of Agriculture and also of the United Farmers of Alberta, came in Saturday  and lectured to two meetings in  the Methodist church. The bad  weather conditions and possibly  the shortness of the notice given  pie 'enetd a very large attendance.  Mr. Wood was announced to  speak on "Problems that Confront  Canada during the Reconstruction  Period," but it might better have  been called "The Development of  Democratic Organization."  lt was a well-thought-out summary of the past, and a vision of  the future. He commenced with  the absolute individuality of the  primeval savage and showed the  gradual growth of organization,  first under autocratic rule, and then  in later davs, in harmony with  real co-operative democracy.  The pressure of competition had  new become so keen that only a  complete re-arrangement of civilization on a true co-operative basis  could save the world from diaas  ter. This was the only kind of reconstruction that would succeed  He believed it was not only possible but it would be done.  Mr. L E. Taylor who was pre  sent at the evening meeting, tackled Mr. Wood regarding the action  of the United Farmers of Alberta  in refusing a gift of apples from  B.C. for their convention, a refusal  he said, which was a deliberate in  suit and a challenge to war. Thi  reason was presumably the protective' tariff, imposed on apples lo  protect B.C. Growers.  Mr. Wood disclaimed any knowledge of the incident further than  newspaper reports, but promised  to investigate.  X. United Farmers  Meet at Kamloops  R. A. Copeland is Elected to  Office of President  Mrs. W. Shugg and child returned Monday from England.  P. S. Roe, of Summerland, was  a visitor Friday and Saturday.  - The Kelowna Hospital Aid is  adopting a rather novel method of  raising the wind. They have undertaken to collect fifty feet of  "nickels"! This is how it is done.  The ladies have" made up a kind  of double tape���fifty feet of it���  really a string of little pockets, each  just the size to hold one. five cent  piece. You will no doubt be asked to fill some of these little  pockets, so dig down in your own  and find the little nickels..  An important real estate deal  was put through during the-past  week by Mr. J. Inglis, in the ssle of  the well-known "Sunset Ranch" of  Mr. J. Bowes. The price obtained  ia stated to be $55,000. There are  200 acres included in the ranch, a  large part of which i**range land.  The price alao includes about 160  head of stock. Mr. Inglis, it might  be mentioned, is this week moving  his office from Water street to opposite the wharf, and will trade  under the name of the Okanagan  Brokerage.  Great Britain, is demanding the  immediate return of all British guns  captured by the Germans.  Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Watt are visitors this week from Innisfall, Alta.  Mr. and Mrs. F.E.Tilev and son  of Penticton, were in town Tuesday.  Mayor Sutherland and Mrs. Sutherland returned from the  coast  few days ago.  Mr. and Mrs, L E. Taylor, who  have been visiting in Vectoria, re  turned laat week-end.  Mrs. Haug and her son Roy left  this week on a visit to relatives in  Idaho.  Mrs. Sharp was a passenger to  New Westminster Wednesday.  The Vernon city council has  made arrangements to repurchase  civic debentures amounting to $29,-  000. due in 1931 and 1936. Payment is made in Victory Loan  bonds, and will result in a saving  of about $7,500.  The provincial government has  instructed the provincial police to  collect an amusement tax from all  entertainments except those given  for church or patriotic purposes  where admission fees are charged.  It was stated in the Legislature  last week that $13,137 was paid in  1911-12 for road location surveys  from Hope to Piinceton. The survey is 98.2 miles in length with a  maximum gradient ot 8 per cent,  for three miles, the sunmit being  4,485 feet above sea level. The  road would cost about $307,000.  At the convention of the United  Farmers of B.C. held at Kamloops  last week, Mr. R. A. Copeland was  elected president, with J. L. Pridham vice-president, A. L. Patterson  aecond vice-president, B. J, Humphrey third vice-president, and- a  directorate which included Mr. S.  T. Elliott of Rutland.  The resolutions dealt with covered a wide field. The special committee named to report on the bill  to reduce the hours of labor reported that in their opinion this could  not be done by the farmer and  that they would ask the government  to postpone legislation on this  matter until a conference could be  held between organized labor and  the agricultural interests.  It was decided to ask tr-e provincial government to have the  creeks and lakes inspected for the  purpose of conserving, the water  supply for irrigation.  The establishment of a powder  plant by the association was endorsed by the delegates.  An increased bounty for killing  coyotes waa aaked for in agricultural districts.  The government was also asked  to throw open logged-off timber  lands for settlement and when  isolated tracts were in agricultural  districts to exchange them for  land in timber districts.  A resolution from Salmon Arm  urged the government to have the  new branch of the C. N. R. from  Kamloops to Kelowna electrified  and to use the water power of the  Adams river and the Shuswap falls  tor that purpose and to alao insure  ao low a rate for power and light  to the farmers along the line as is j  given by the hydro-electro  Ontario.  A difficulty arose in connection  with the name of the organization.  It waa discovered that there was  a company in the province doing  business under the name of the  United Farmers of B. C. and that it  would be impossible to organize  under that name. It was arranged  to ask the Farmers Institute of the  province to join in with the movement.  Rutland News  "feem oar otm snrrssnirrsd���n.  The annual treat for the scholars  of the Baptist Church Sunday  School, which was postponed from  Christmas time on account of the  influenza, waa held last Friday  ight, and was enjoyed by the  youngsters none the less because  of the long delay. There was the  usual feed, and a good one too,  after which a programme of recitations, songs &c wss given bv the  scholars. Mr. Geo. Brown's class  gave a very effective "wand drill."  Mrs*}. A. Bigger  delivered  Will Abolish All Private  Labor Agencies  It is the intention of Attorney.  General Farris to introduce a bill  in the houae thia week doing away  with all private labor agencies in  the province. The bill will go into effect upon proclamation. The  government intends to open up  labor bureaus at all strategic points  in the interior of the province, in  addition to those recently put in  operation in Vancouver nnd Vic  toria. At other points where the  labor market is not sufficient to  call for a bureau the government  will appoint a representative. Another bill amending the Department  of Labor Act will include working  women as well as working men  within the scope of the labor bureau's activities.

Mugford, who recently  returned from France, took charge  of the Sunday-school again last  week. He was in France with a  forestry battalion and had charge  of the loading and transportation  of lumber trom his camp near Par-  He has many interesting experiences to relate.  The Rev. R. E. S. Taylor, a missionary on leave from China, lectured Tuesday evening, giving a  very interesting description of life  in that portion of the mission field.  He urged that more volunteers  preser.^'tiemselvfs for the work,  which was out of ail proportion to  the puny efforts put forward. He  had a lot of interesting curios to  show his audience.  The Flag that braved the battle  and the breeze t The specimen  seen (sometimes) on the flag-pole  in the school grounds shows that  five years of its life has proved  very wearing, and it ia in a tattered  and torn condition. The ratepayers (those who pay their taxes)  would be quite willing for the  school trustees to procure a new  flag, and include the purchase price  in this yeara estimates, and also  make a point of seeing that it is  raised on every school day.  Organize Branch of  Conference to be Held at Penticton This Weekend  An interesting movement haa  just been started. The local school  teachers, in conjunction with other  centres iu the Okanagan Valley,  have formed a branch of the Federation of Teachers of British Columbia. The preliminary meeting  was hhld'in the Puplic School on  Monday. After an address by Mr.  L. V. Rogers, principal of the High  School, in which he lucidly set  forth the aims of the proposed  organization, the following officers  were elected : President, Principal  Gordon of the Public School; vice-  president, Principal Rogers; Sec-  Treas., MacNaughton, vice-principal of the High School Two rural  teachera Were present and it is  hoped to enro 1 all the rural school  teachera in the valley.  This organization ia purely in  the interests of the teachers as  members of the teaching profeasion  and will do everything to stimulate  a greater degree of co-operation.  Frequent opportunities will be  given for teachera to meet together  to discuss problems relating to  their life and work.

BURTCH   -   Phone 180  We hear many complaints about  the eclipse of Canadian literature  and about the quality of such ns  there is at the present day. But it  seems to me that this state of  affairs will continue until i lore  genuine interest is laken by the  people in their own literature and  publications. I should like to see  the parents of Canada encourage  their children to read the great  Canadian books and to get acquainted with Canadian publication!!. The school can do something, but the influence of the  home must supplement that of the  school if the finest and purest arid  most enduring wo.k is to be done.  We must recognize that if we are  to build up a trim and strong  nation we must have a literature  that will bind hearts and minds  together ; that will give enlightenment in the days of darkness; that  will fill the leisure hours with beauty, and that will bind soul to soul  in the commonwealth of the spirit.  The following quotation is from  the. current number of the Hibbert  Journal and is one of many attempts to foresee the education of  the future. The great trouble today in education is that everyone  thinks something is wrong with  the educational system, but no one  can tell just what it ia, and no one  has a belter to suggest. At preaent  there are many guesses at the truth  ���some interesting, some diaap.  pointing. Here is one that ia both  thoughtful and interesting i-  "Children whose intellects give  little or no response to the stimuli  of knowledge after the age of thirteen, but whose wills are interest-  ed in doing things, should have  and will have, a different educational course offered to them than  $5.00for$4M  And Every Dollar  Worth More.  Kelowna Lose to Summerland at Basketball  A surprise was in store for the  local scouts Friday, when the Sum-  me.l'vid Troop came up to play  them at basketball. Owing to the  fact that the games had to be postponed twice on account of the  influenza, no little interest was  manifested when it became generally known that the Sammerland  teama were really on the way,  coming via the "Ski oleum," a fine  gasolene boat.  There was a good turnout of  fans, so that the local boya lacked  no encouragement and very soon  after eight o'clock the junior teams  took the "field." Mr. E. C. Wed-  dell acting as referee. There was  nothing very spectacular about the  game, both teams being about even  regarding weight and ability to  play, and the final score of 7 points  to 9 in favor of Kelowna might just  as well have been reversed.  The intermediaries, however,  showed promising signs in Sum-  merland's favor from the start, Kelowna being unfortunate in having  to place a scratch team in the field  The half-time score was Summer-  land 4, Kelowna 2. In the second  half Ralph Reid did some clever  work for the visitors and a brilliant  shot from Moses Marshall helped  to increase their lead which at the  finish stood 10 points to 4.  That appearances are sometimes  deceptive well illustrated when the  senior team started in, and it looked as though Kelowna was fully  prepared to wipe off any old scores  that may have been outstanding,  but in spite of the strenuous efforts  put forth there was but the difference of one point when the whistle  blew for the half���5 to 4 in favor  of the visiting team. Excitement  ran high all through the second  half and it was obvious that every  player was doing his level best.  Summerland seemed a little afraid  of themselves and repeatedly cleared their net with long shots to the  other end of the floor, but by  brilliant spurts now and again  added to their score until at three  minutes to time the board showed  11 to- 8, which Kelowna reduced  in the last minnte to 11-10 but  still lost lhe game. Summerland  was by no means the better team  man for man, but the shooting was  extremely poor as witnessed by  the fact that during the second  half Kelowna had Seven free shots,  missing all. Had they have netted  the ball on only two of these occasions it would have given them  the game. Perhaps they will retrieve their fortunes when they  visit Summerland in a couple of  weeks time.  that which is proposed for children whose intellects develop normally with each passing year,  Children whose futures are apparently to be commercial or industrial will have (and many should  have), an education from the age  of thirteen to eighteen���unlike that  of the boy whose education will  be continued up to the age of  twenty-four. But be it quickly added that in such early determination of career lies a peril, for many  boys and girls do not wake up and  find themselves betore the age of  sixteen. The child may finally  eventuate into an early manhood  or womanhood which is quite unlike the character which he seemed to posess in his sleepy, changeful, tempestuous, adolescent peripd  . ... It is ever to be borne in  mind that there is a vast difference  between education educative and  education occupative."  Mr. Bigger visited several rooms  in the school last week.

The scoutmaster recently, received a letter from Mrs. Jepson, mother  of. our former AJS.M. Kenneth Jepson, who expects to return to Canada soon for his discharge. Mrs.  Jepson also very kindly forwarded  a donation of $2 to our troop funds  for which we wish to thank her  very much  Our former A.S.M. Mr. Keown  arrived in Kelowna last Tuesday  on his way south to Penticton, at  which point he is rejoining the  Bank of Moutieal. Our loss is  Penticton's gain and Mr. Keown's  arrival there ahould be very timely  as just now the Penticton Troop is  temporarily disbanded through lack  of a senior officer..  There may have beer, more ex.  citing moments in athletic contests  staged in Kelowna than the closing  minutes of the last basket-ball match  played last Friday evening between  Summerland and our first teama,  but we doubt it. When games are  so fast and close it is a great strain  on the players to keep their tempers, say nothing, and play for the  best that is in them- The members  of both teams in . this last match  and in the other two are to be  congratulated on the excellent  sportsmanship displayed throughout. As there will be an account  of the matches elsewhere in the  paper, we ahall say no more here,  except that we are looking forward  to return matches at Summerland  as soon as possible, most likely a  week from Friday next.  We would like to thank the following : Mrs. Parkinson, Mr. and  Mrs. Calder, Day, Ball, Small, Rich  ards, Cunninghan, McCarthy, Marshall, Rowcliffe, and the Misses  Hunter, for so kindly billetting  members of the visiting troop ; Mrs.  DuMoulin for making our lemon-  ade, and Mr, Groves for cohveying  some of the scouts to and from Mr.  Dav'a. The Summerland acouts  are always welcome visitors to Kelowna and we are always glad to  have the opportunity of becoming  better acquainted with them.

Box 538  Greenhouse and Frames Harvey Avenue Eaat  -   Keiowna r.VOB FOTJE  KBIOVNA  KECOBJ)  Thursday, February 27,1919  Correspondence  A FOREIGNER TO A FOREIGNER  To the Editor of  The Kelowna Record.  Dear Sir: Allow ine to uae your  much-valued apace to reply to Mr.  Iwashita regarding what he calls  the growing race hatred against  the Japaneae in Rutland, which he  ao forcibly and cleverly set forth  in hia letter in last week's issue.  These linea are written by a foreigner like himaelf, only 1 have  had the pleaaure of residing in  Canada for 21 years, 14 of which  were spent in Keluwna, and I beg  to stoie mv experience without animosity. 1 feel I am able in aome  measure to write the true facta a. d  atate of things, and ask Mr. Iwaa-  hita to atop and earnestly consider  hia statement, auch as " magical  catch-word . grotesque mis  aile of a'white Canada.'" 1 beg to  aay he haa not alopped to think  what hia high-aoundin? worda can  mean to a Canadian. I, aa a foreigner, leave it to them, but think  I have an idea of what some will  think.  Further, he wonders if the agitators are conacioua of the fact that  they are dealing with the future  not only of the 200 local J<ipaneae  but the 80,000,000 compatriota on  the other side of the Pacific. Frank-  I muat confess it haa never entered  my mind or anyone else's at Rutland, to have to deal with 80,000,-  000 Japaneae. We aimply have to  take his word for it.  Aa to the 1910 law of Japan regarding the taking up of land by  loreignera in that country, I would  have him note that thia waa passed  after the California queation arose.  Further, had Japan any land to  give?  I am ready to agree that the Jap.  ia a prosperous, productive being,  and there are none who have ill-  feeling remarka to paaa on Japan  aa a nation, or ita inhabitanta aa individuals.  Now let ua look at the aubject  a littler (rom tha farmer's standpoint. The  Jap, in order to succeed, work their wo.  men in tha field. How can a woman thai  loves a cultured home look favorably al  that ? and aa Mr. Iwashita alludes lo the  future���what will be the verdict >  Let me quota an incident ot ten years  ago. Leaving my office one afternoon I  waa confronted by the Japaneae consul  trom Vancouver, Mr. Jada, who asked me  to show him the district. 1 waa impressed  with knowledge of England, Canada,  U.S.A., Spain and Argentine, in which  countries he had acted aa Japan'a representative, and during our conversation 1  asked what Japan waa doing. He replied,  "Building boats," and it ia well known  that Japanese shipping ia the dominant  factor, or nearly ao, of tho Pacific. A few  years after I asked a Jap. the aame question as I asked  Jada, and received a si mi-  CREAM PRICES  from Jan. 1st, 1919  Kelowna prices: No. 1 -  60c per lb. butter fat  No. 2-  58c  KELOWNA CREAMERY, LTD.  Ur answer. I said '* Do vou samd "money  home to build boat* } " he answered, yds  ���and he had a perfect right to put hi*  money where he liked. But here's the  point: when the local Jap. wanti food or  clothing he goei to Mr. Iwaehita and buys  commodities purchased in (apan and shipped on Japaneae vessels to Canada���they  are not helping Canadian*, but arc fostering a foreign settlement in Canada.  Further, look at the industries that have  reverted to the foreigner, such aa the fishing and the packing of fish, the mining and  the lumbering; the, in eome instances, up  to 90 per cent, of labourers���all commodities for which are purchased in Japan-  out of Canada.  If the Japs, wish to settle here why do  they not endeavor to conform to the country and its ways, rather than establish iso-  Isted colonies in our midst ? If 1 may be  pardoned for so doing I will give my own  experiences, which 1 suggest is typical of  what Canada may fairly expect from all  foreigners desirous of living here. I was  upon landing in Canada on the same footing as a Jap., the only difference being  that he was born in Japan and I in Swe*  den. 1 did not entrench myself behind  embassies representing my nation, supplied with trained representatives and lawyers, and publications printed in my native  tongue, nor did 1 dig up treaties reminding me that I had so many compatriots  across the sea, nnd that the people I re-  preseated had to be reckoned with, nor  did 1 send my earnings out of the land or  join with other Swedes in forming a settlement. I came to Canada to be a Cano  dian, not in conjunction with Sweden but  with Canada. What is more, I do not  speak Swedish in my home, and do not  intend to have my children taught it. Thus  I shall not have to appeal for the assistance of statesmen to champion my cause,  not even to allude to it aa a "��� great international subject." It ia up to the Jap. to  be honest to Canada, and not a Canadian  on paper.  This letter is not written with a view to  notoriety, but to express the thoughts of  one foreigner who thinks he seea a little  more light which might help another foreigner.

(1) Employment Offices.  So, that everyone���male or  female, soldier or civilian���can  get quickly such jobs as are  available the Government is cooperating with the Provinces in  establishing a chain of Public  Employment Offices. Employers are being urged to make use  of these offices to secure any  help they need. Farmers, for  example, who need hired men  should apply to the nearest  office. There will be a Public  Employment Office in every  town of 10,000 people���and  wherever the needfor oneexists.  There will be 60 different offices  in all���one-half are already in  operation.  (��?) Employment Opportunities.  The war held up much work  that will now be carried on at  once. Public works, shipbuilding, roadbuilding, railway work  ���construction of bridges, improvement of road-bed, making  of new equipment���these will  provide new opportunities for  employment. In addition, the  Government has se"nt a Trade  Mission overseas to secure for  Canada a share in the business of  providing materials and products required for reconstruction work in Europe. It has also  set aside the  large sum of  $25,000,000 to be loaned through  the Provinces to encourage the  building of workmen's houses.  This will mean much new work  in the spring.  (8) Land and Loans for Soldiers  To help soldiers become farmers the Government has developed a programme that  includes the providing of land,  the granting of loans, and the  training and supervision of  those inexperienced in farming.  At present, the soldier is granted, free^in addition to his ordinary homestead right, one  quarter-section of Dominion  lands. He also receives a loan  up to the maximum of $2,500. ~  These original plans are now  being broadened. If Parliament  passes the new proposals during  this session, the Soldier Settlement Board will be able to buy  suitable land and re-sell it to  the soldier at cost.  Land up to the value of  $5,000 may be bought by this  plan���the money to be repaid  in 20 years. The low interest  rate of 5 per cent, will be  charged. These new proposals  will also permit the Soldier  Settlement Board to loan the  soldier-farmer up to $2,500 for  purchasing equipment, etc., in  addition to $5,000 loan on his  farm.
