A World Problem
It is hard for we, the people of North
America, to fully appreciate that in various
parts of the world serious shortages of food
already exist.
We are assured, at least at present, of
abundant supplies of foodstuffs. This fact
gives us a feeling of false security and many
of us look on our food supplies as being inexhaustible. Indeed in the past century we
have farmed much of our land as if it were
Only in recent years have various books,
newspapers and scientific papers, impressed
us with the fact that by the end of the
century the population of North America will
have increased to' such an extent that present
levels of production will not provide sufficient
food for all.
The logical answer, of course, is to ensure
that agricultural production in future year.:,
will be at a maximum. This maximum can
only, be obtained by paying more and more
attention to the problems limiting output of

Agriculture is a science and for our own
livelihood must become increasingly scientific, if world populations continue to rise at
their present rate. As an industry of prime
importance to our economy and our physical
welfare, it should advance with other forms
of industry.
Consequently we should be prepared to
allot more and more trained personnel to the
problems of research, administration, and extension, in agriculture. Unfortunately this
does not appear to be the policy in Canada
at the present time. In fact, the policy seems
to be to limit agricultural departments to a
minimum. As a result agriculture is not progressing as rapidly as it should.
In the interests of everyone, let us hope'
that soon we shall see greater efforts made to
solve the problem of feeding more people
from our limited resources. It is important
that we ensure today, that we can produce
the foods wc need for tomorrow.

Early one sleepy morning in the vicinity of
Main and Hastings Streets, a few red-eyed
stalwarts were stamping feet, blowing on
hands, and waiting for the last bus. A debon-

gaze lit on me. Wc agreed that it was a cold I

COTC Complaint
Kditor, the Ubyssey,
Dear sir:
I protest vehemently the type
of correspondence which the
COTC has currently been using
In an attempt to recruit student
officers. It Is but a shallow mockery of our intelligence.
The following is a quotation
frjim n form-letter sent to various
fconlor students: "You will travel
widely and see many lands and
customs. Every opportunity is
made available for you to further
your education. You will retire
early to a life* pension which it
would cost you a fortune to purchase as an annuity. Your family
will be well cared for throughout
your time in the Army. Your life
and work will be no more dlscip
lined than they would be In any
walk of civilian life."
It sounds more like a cross Between a travel folder and a chanca
to buy shares in a phony oil well.
The word 'Army* seems grossly
out of place. To say that the quotation is misleading would certainly be an understatement.
COTC, unless I am mistaken,
exists solely for the purpose ot
training officers, who in the
future are to assume the respon-
Hlblltty for the defence of Canada.
There is no mention of this fact
In the text of the letter in question. Rather there is the implication that the Army Officer's Job
hi remarkably soft and lucrative.
This nort of enticement will only
lead to the production of an army
of mercenaries.
What patriot would call these
men comrades?
