Win the War by Preparing the Land Sowing the Seed and Producing Bigger Crops Work in Joint Effort the Soil of the United States and Canada CO-OPERATIVE FARMING IN MAN POWEIt NECESSAItY TO WIN THE BATTLE FOll LIBERTY The Food Controllers of the United States and Canada are asking for greater food production. Scarcely 100,000,000 bushels of wheat arc avail able to be sent to the allies overseas before the crop harvest. Upon the etTorts of the United States and Canada rests the burden of supply. Every Avallablo Tillable Acre Must Contribute; Every Available Farmer and Farm Hand Must Assist Western Canada has an enormous acreage to be Seeded, but man power is short, and an appeal to the United States allies is for more men for seed ing operation. Canada's Wheat Production Last Year was 226,000,000 Bushels; the Demand From Canada Alone for 1918 Is 400,000,000 Bushels To secure this she must have assistance. She has the land but needs the men. The Government of the United States wants every man who can effectively help, to do farm work this year. It wants the land in the United States developed first of course; but it also wants to help Canada. When ever we find a man we can spare to Canada's fields after ours are supplied, we want to direct him there. Apply to our Employment Service, and we will tell you where you can beit serve the combined interests. Western Canada's help will be required not later than April 5th. Wage to competent help, 50.00 a month and up, board and lodging. Those who respond to this appeal will eet a warm welcome, good wages, pood board and find comfortable homes. They will get a rate of one cent a mile from Canadian boundary points to destination and return. For particulars as to routes and places where employment may be had pply to: U. S.

They cannot get our chickens nnd our eggs we can and like to eat them. Poultry can be Increased more rapidly nnd more economically than any of the meat animals. Chickens will live largely, grow and prosper, on wnste that never otherwise would bo of use, nnd will cat tho Infant bugs, particularly orchard pests, be fore they hnve had opportunity to do great harm.

LITTLE DETAILS OF SPRING, r-uunrymcn onouia uican uui, uisin-i tect and Whitewash Hen Houses Look Over fences. With the' coming of spring, when fowls spend more time out of doors, the poultrymnn should don his overalls and Jumper and set things briskly to rights. There are the houses to clean out, disinfect nnd whitewash; fences to look over nnd possibly mend, yards to rake up, spade nnd sow to rye or oats ; brooders nnd brooding coops to pnlnt and clean and colony houses to get In shape. 1 BIG WORK III IDE WAR The War Lord Salutes the Field Marshall. Such Is tho striking tltlo to n well- timed enrtoon In nn agricultural pa per, showing tho War Lord In snluto to tho farmer. Tho meaning of It Is that without the nsslstnnco thnt tho farmer renders In tho matter of pro viding food for tho army tho fighting ability of thnt body would bo propor tionally decreased, Whllo tho army Is fighting, tho farmer Is busy. The promptness with which ho sprang Into the breach was a patriotism equal to that of tho man who enlisted nnu tho farmer's record In this particular was worthy of tho high record that has becomo Ills. All over tho United States tho appeal Is being met by more production. Fields nro enlarged, Inten sive ngrlculturo has taken tho place of slipshod methods, moro cnttlo nro being fattened, moro hogs grown, veal nnd lamb have becomo senrco com modities. This is all In keeping with tho food-controller's demands, and with tho hcnrtlness that 1b now preva lent, It would seem as If the require ments of tho boys nt tho front and tho allies In Europo would bo fully met. Not only nro tho tilled acres of tho JJnltcd States being brought Into requisition, but tho wild rusturo lauds ro doing tribute with their cattle and sheep. Working In conjunction with tho United States, Western Canada Is nlso doing Its share nnd n pretty large snaro It Is, too. By an arrangement with the United Stntes Government It will now bo posslblo through its env ployment burenu to secure for tho Western Canndn fields such help as can bo spared. It Is thought In this way Canada will havo Us help to seed Its millions of ncres of wheat land fairly well met. Tho largo number of young men of tho farms who havo cnllsjcd nnd gone to tho front has left many of tho Western Canada rarms weak In tho matter of man power, This menns that Canada can tako nil thnt tho United Stntes can spare. Tho wages will bo good and tho housing comfortnble. In addition to this tho free home stead lands of Western Canada offer tho greatest Inducement to tho mnn with limited menns who Is willing to undergo some of tho hardships natu rally accompanying this enterprise, Thcro Is nlso tho lnrgo area of uncul tivated lands thnt nro waiting tho mnn with sufficient means to purchnso and equip. And this Is not expen slve. Tho lands aro cheap 'and the terms very reasonable. Equipped with tractor or horso power tho cultivation cost Is slight when tho return Is con sldercd. Yields of wheat varying from 20 to 40 bushels per ncro may bo ro lled upou, and with n set price of over $2.00 per bushel, It Is nn easy matter to arrlvo at the cost, rroductlon, In cluding Interest on land, has been esti mated at figures not exceeding ten dollnrs anncre. With a twenty bushel yield, at n two dollar price forty dol lars. Ten from forty nnd you have tho profits many formers made In Western Canada tho past year. Tho Dominion nnd Provincial Gov ernments aro working conjointly In nn Increased production propaganda. Among the Important steps that huve been taken to bring thts nbout 13 the recent order by which It Is mndo pos elble to tako Into Cnnnda tractors that cost fourteen hundred dollars and less In tho country of production. This will glvo those residing in the United Stntes, owning lands In Canndn, the opportunity to place them under cul tlvatlon nt much less cost thnn In tho past. Another Inducement Is the prlvl lego of taking sheep and cnttlo In free of duty. Automobiles form a necessary part of the outfit of a good many farmers thnt would llko to move to Cannda. Theso are now accorded free duty. Provision Is nlso mndo that those requiring seed and unable to ob tuln It In any other wuy, may get It from the Government. So from this It will bo seen thnt It Is not only tho fertile lands of Western Cnnnda that Invito the settler, but tho enso and DO NOT FRIGHTEN CHICKENS Hens Disturbed Will Not Lay as Well as They Otherwise Would Keep Dogs Away.

Free rango and care ot 5f m lo lhe American People There is no foundation for the alleged violations of law attributed to our Com pany by agents of the Federal Trade Commission and I want to say emphatic ally that Swift & Company is not a party to any conspiracy to defraud the Govern ment. Nor has Swift & Company been guilty of improperly storing foods or of making false entries or reports. Conferences of packers, where prices have been discussed, have been held at the urgent request and in the presence of representatives of either the Food Administration or the Council of National Defense. And yet the packers have been accused of committing a felony by acting in collusion on Government bids I We have done our best, with other packers, large and small, to comply with the directions of the United States Food Administration in all particulars, including the furnishing of food supplies for the U. S. Army and Navy and the Allies, now be ing handled through the Food Adminis tration. We will continue to do our utmost.un- der Government direction, to increase our production and assist the Food Adminis tration. We consider that the opportunity to co-operate whole-heartedly and to our fullest powers with this branch of the Government is our plain and most press ing duty. The Trade Commission Attorney has, by false inference and misplaced empha sis, given to disconnected portions of the correspondence taken from our private files and read into the Record, a false and sinister meaning with the plain purpose of creating antagonistic public opinion. The services of the packers of the United States are most urgently needed, and I regret exceedingly that we should at this time have to spend our efforts in defending ourselves against unfounded, unproved, and unfair assertions such as are being daily made public.
