Canada la in even worse condition
than our country over the decline of
agriculture, and the government Is
atriving to find the cauae and a rem

distributing costs, the levy of the
middle interests and high railroad
ratei are given as the principal
eausei. E. J. Garland, member of
parliament, stated in a recent speech
at Montreal, that 70 per cent of the
farms In western Canada had been
taken away and are Dw owned by
the banks and loan companies; that
if all the assets of the farmers were
liquidated there would be general
bankruptcy. He recommended as a
remedy both co-operation and politic

could succeed, but combined they

Of hides and skins (not including

Thousands of dollars were saved
through the few hundred dollars In- i
vested In a health and recreation ser-
vice on the Eola Ranch, between Sa-;
lem and Independence, during the
September, 1923, hop harvest.
This unique experiment succeeded
in holding more than a thousand
workers on the job until the end of
the harvest. In contrast to the exper
ience fh 1922, when the force dropped
from 1,000 tolesa than 300 at the end
of the first ten days. This continu
ous service of the large number of
workers reduced the period of harvest
from a month to twenty-two days,
saved a perishable crop, and cut the
cost of harvesting by eliminating
eight days overhead. One ranch in
the neighborhood of Eola abandoned
the picking of a large acreage be
cause of Its difficulty in holding the

unripe fruit and hastily prepared
food. Suggestion In the daily paper
which was mimeographed on the
ranch, induced many to choose a
wholesome combination. The gro-'
eery stores on the ranch received
fresh supplies dally and mltk was de
livered from an accredited dairy. j
Out of the seventeen Injured dur
ing harvest, only one man lost any
time from work. Cases needing a
physician or dentist were taken to
the neighboring town in a car be
longing to the welfare workers, or
medical attendance was brought to
them. Many of the cases of illness in
other years which had broken the
morale of the working staff were
among the children who were either
taken to the fields in the hot sun or
left in camp to take care of them
selves and eat whatever they might
find. Much of this trouble was pre
vented this year by the day nurseries
which cared for the children too
young to help their parents. For the
tiny babies there were pallets of
straw, and for the older children,
simply playground apparatus, games
and stories. The ranch provided free
milk for these children each day. The
food left for the children's lunch by
thefr parent swas given them by the
attendants at the proper time.
The program of evening recreation
around the camp fire proved so at
tractive to the hundreds of workers
who assembled night after night that
one of the two dance halls built by
the management did not justify the
cost of an orchestra and was closed.
The other dance hall was open only
five nighta a week.
A printed circular sent out weeks
before the season opened, to the ad
dresses of former employes, and to
auto camps and other assembling
places of migrant workers, had asked
them to bring musical instruments
and theatrical make-up and to be pre
pared to use any gift they might pos
sess for entertaining. Among those
who came were musicians, story-tellers,
dramatic readers, tumblers,
dancers and a slack rope walker, and
one family which had been on the
vaudeville stage, and which coached
the members of its own camp in a
seven-act performance for the en
tertainment of another camp. The
star performers were frequently ask
ed to repeat an act for another camp.
Boxing, volley ball, horseshoes and
other athletic events gave an outlet
for surplus energy.
