(UD •-• Rmrois of Saskatchewan, Canada's premier ngri:uttiiral province, look upon 1040. to return them the best yei.r's fii-'cme in more than n denuie. Preparing to go on a hind sc^urj:- nl ty drouth these farmers—hold hit iiy economic depression fur j cars—In 1939 harvested the first tjisod crop in more than It) yeais. Now, with the war raking paces of agricultural produce, both grain' and animal, they vision 1940 as being even more lucrative. There lias been little to <lu(e to mar, the agricultural outlook in SflsknU'h/nvflJ). Though sub-soil moisture is reiwrlcd below normal, that is not an unusual condition In Saskatchewan and with Rood spring moisture, until July, farmers hope to harvest a good crop. Grain prices arc not yet hiyh, but they have climbed gradually In the past few months. Farmers believe that due to Ihe war. prices will have risen more by the time the next harvest Is due. about eight months from this date. Farmers Have Own Seed One bright spot, In the farm picture is the fact, that for the first time in years, the provincial government will not have (o purchase seed for farmers to begin their crop year. The past year yielded plenty, both seed and feed, to virtually all districts in the province. It is a tremendous contrast to the spring of 1939, when the provincial government had to advance 41,500,000 (o riirnl municipalities to aid farmers In Ihc purchase of seed and feed. In northeastern Saskatchewan, around the Whitefox district which has gained wills fame in the n&st six.-years for the high quality production of alfalfa seed, alfalfa farmers expect an exceptionally banner year in 1910. Last year was their first setback since alfalfa farming? was begun, only 2,000.000 pounds being harvested Instead of Ihe anticipated G.000,000 pounds. Fewer Insects Indicated Insect pests will be al a minimum In 1940, according lo government entomologists. The recurrent, grasshopper plague will be al the low point of its cycle and the grasshopper infestation is reported to be the lightest for years. But animal breeders, excluding those of horses, island to profit most by (lie wartime rise In prices. Parliciilnrly sei (lie hog breeders. Saskatchewan, with n hog population of 500,000, looks forward to n sharp rise in both prices and population in 1040. With Cnnniln supplying between 4,408,000 and 5.6GO ( OOD pounds of bacon to Britain weekly under a war-time contract with the Canada Bacon •Board, hog raisers arc assured a Steady price for their product.

Mo. (UP)—A proposal to take the Missouri courts out of politics will be submitted id the voters ne.vt, November. The proposal, which has the . backing cf the Missouri Bar Asso- Republicanism cialion, is patterned after similar ' laws now in effect in 10 states, and would forbid judges from taking part In political campaigns nr from holding office in uoliiieal parties. Under the plp.n, judges .would be selected in the following man- 1. Nomination by . non-piuttsan, non-salaried commissions, composed of both laymen and lawyers. 2. The governor would appoint judges from a list of .three nominees. ., ro 3.

'I hey awoke barely in time to hear President _ _ Roosevelt tell their Congress: "Don't seek or expect a panacea—a meet in Philadelphia ' is at least 2 unr «"'y of permanent rennmeialive occupation cf your own choosing." partly a reflection of llic influence . • which the conservative group headed by Jay Cockc. Joseph E. Pew, Jr., mid their associates ex- .rts In the party. This group has .1 candidate — Governor James of Pennsylvania. It may not he able to nominate him, but it will have a sood deal to say about who is nominated. And by that token it appears that the New Dealers here arc kidding themselves when they say (as they very often do. these days) that even if the next President is a Republican most of the New Deal program' will zemain in effect, "because nnbcdy can turn the ?lcck back."

Doggy Eviction 'Brings Suit for $10,000 The Appellate Judicial Commission, consisting of seven members, would nominate candidates for juelje of the state suprejn'e court and for the three courts of appeal. This commission would consist of the chief justice of the supreme court, of three lawyers named by the Missouri Bar Asso- laymen ciation, and of three named by Ihe governor.
