By P. W. Luce, 2334 Balaclava St, Vancouver, B.C.

‘When I was a young and full of pep, I gave myself one of the hardest jobs in the world. I harvested Manitoba’s wheat crop.

I didn’t of course harvest all of it. Several thousand husky easterners came west to help with the job, and they tossed around quite a few of the 50,000,-000 bushels picked up that year, but I did what I could. Indeed, there were times when I did more than I could, the the choice was not mine. It was always the boss who put the pressure on me.’
