His experience established him as a recognized authority on land valued, and in 1918, when he retired, he had for 12 years been a member of the Saskatchewan Farm Loans Board. Mr, McMillan was a life member of the Saskatchewan Curling Association, and for 25 years an executive member oi the Saskatoon association. He threw a rock on the citys first rink, a two-sheet affair set up in 1904 near Twenty-second Street and Fourth Avenue. In 1912 be built the sixth-storey Glengarry block on Third Avenue, and his personal fortune w'as wiped out when a portion of the building caved in when near completion. An executive of the Saskatoon Old Timers Association, Mr, McMillan contributed much material to local histories of the city and district, recollections, some of them, of the prairie nights which he spent sleeping beneath his buggy.

The recent annual dinner and dance was the first one that he had missed. Another organization in whose work Mr. McMillan was interested was the Anti-Tuberculosis League. In 1905 Mr. McMillan iharried Charlotte Johnson, daughter of a western pioneer.

She survives him. Other survives are: three daughters, Mae, a city employee Betty, Mns. Harold Mighton, now living in Buffalo, N.Y., Kay Mrs. Hector Verge, of Quebec' city; three sons, Orville, of the a Reports qf the success of four types of Saskatchewan co-operative fuims were heard at the Co-operative Fannins Conference which began here' Thursday. This conference was the first held since the original prgamza' tion meeting in 1915.

In his opening address, Premier T. C. Douglas, minister of co-operation, had said: Now we shali see v.hat has been done. And from a 100 per cent cooperative, a machinery co-operative, a veterans co-operative and a family co-operative, came news of progress and prospec tive success. Lome Dietrick, chairman of the Matadore Co-operative Farm Association, 00 miles north of Swift Cunent, outlined the organization and achieve rnents of the only complete-type co-operative in Saskatchewans open plains region.

Its working, he said. Qur efficicencv will increase, With 18 members, the farm had ft 1,000 invested in a complete line of modern machinery used to plow, seed, cultivate and harvest their better-than 9,000 acres. He explained that the members, no matter what their positions, were paid $100 a month in wages. They also received five per cent interest in equity on cash invested, and any surplus was paid to them on the basis of days worked on -the farm. Mr.

Dietrick did not agree co. for everyone. There was, he said, no place for old people yet in co-operative farming. Nor was there a place for those who could not adapt must want the co-operative way of life for 4t a way of life before they can adjust," he said. Jack Chapman of Laurel Cooperative, did not entirely agree with this view.

There is a place in co-operative farming for men from 17 to 70 years, if the farm is handled properly," Mr, Chapman said. Chairman of the Laurel' fam-ily co-operative at Mr. Chapman explained that the Laurel was an example of individual holdings which had been pooled. The farm was incorporated with six members, a father, sen and son-in-law ahd their wives There were also three younger sons. Laurel now had seven members, with five houses on the farm.

Complete acreage was 23,000 acres, on which the machinery investment was about $6 an acre. Example of a partial co-operative was set forth at the conference by Armond, Keall, secretary of the 15-member Mount Hope machinery co-operative near North Battleford. At Mount Hope, only the machinery was co-operatively owned. "The plan is financially sound, Mr. Keall said.

Cost per cultivated acre in 1947 was $2.23, in 1948, in 1949, $4.00. The cost was rising with increased cultivated acre-ge ana improved machinery. The profits were also rising. From the Carrot River veterans project, Bill Hope, secre- tary, outlined the River Bend co-operative farm organization. The River Bend was situated on provincialiy-owned lands with a total acreage of about 3,200.

A. L. Holmes, Saskatchewan chief inspector of the Veterans Land Act, revealed that 73 veterans were settled under V.L.A on co-operative farms, in the province while 1,267 had been settled individually. There were no accurate figures available on the number of applications recently made and not yet accepted. Mr.

Homes said that total advances for Saskatchewan group farmers to date had been $169,360, with $87,600 placet? in stock and equipment and the remainder in permanent improvements. Advances to all classes had been $3,072,133. Minister of social welfare, the Honorable J. H. Sturdy, was not satisfied with the settlement of veterans in the Carrot river area.

It is too slow, he said. There should be 150 veterans settling there yearly, instead of 50, he declared. He suggested that the question be discussed by the conference before adj'ournlnent. When asked whether vet erans settled on the River Bend farm would go into individual farming if each were given $30,000 to do so, Mr. Hope answered with some hesitation.

I cannot speak for the others because I do not know vvhat would do myself, he said. Then: I think they will reach their goal faster in co-operatives, he decided, OSHAWA MURDER VICTIMS Court Hears Tale of Woe; Views Scars Once again a long tale of woe was told in City Police court by John Gerald Maekie. 30, Nokumis, after being found guilty on a charge of obtaining $18.50 by false pretences. Sentence was reserved until Saturday. Sentenced to one month in Prince Albert jail by Magistral B.

M. Wakeling last Wednesday Maekie came up with the plea that he was sick. In telling his story he revealed to the court numerous scars on his body, which, he said, he had received while serving In the armed forces. He had shown the magis trate scars on his arms, head and brace on his leg and was about to take out his shirt to show one on his stqmach when the magistrate stopped him. Maekie had previously plead ed not guilty to the charge but after the prosecution had presented its evidence he admitted his guilt.

Addressing the accused, the magistrate said that surely he had learned his lesson by this time, Mackies record went back to 1936. Maekie replied that he had many times over." In that case, replied the magistrate, what are you doing here? Maekie said that it was due to the lack of jobs and his sickness. Deputy Chief of Police, Joseph Maekie told the court that it was just last July that the accused had been sentenced to four months in Prince Albert jail on the same kind of a charge. He also mentioned that at that time the accused had been sent to North Battelford for a mental checkup and had been judged fi to stand trial by the doctors. However, the magistrate remanded Maekie until Saturday morning so that a full report could be brought in by the adult probation officer, A.

However, three problems arose out of the Industrial Revolution: The concentration of wealth among a few; the lack of purchasing power among the people, leading to underconsumption and unemployment; and tiie war and conquest which arose when the few sought to sell surpluses on foreign markets.

Co-operatives were the first attempt by man to solve the problems left by the Industrial Revolution, he declared. Next came trade unions and now the growing belief in public ownership of the principal movements of production and exchange. Public ownership simply means a universal co-opsiative, the premier pointed out He said there was room for individually owned enterprises or voluntary co-operatives (small stores were an example). As long as there is public and co-operative ownership where they belong, I do not think it will hurt to have some private ownership, the premier said. But the large economic activities he felt should be rublicly owned, so that a large gtoup of people could not be exploited by a few.
