Mr. Applewhaite:

It would appear from the questions that have been asked during the last few minutes that there is some criticism of the increase in this item. I would suggest that the only criticism which should be made is that, instead of increasing ten times it should have increased twenty or thirty. Hon. members should know that for many years such organizations as the Daughters of the Empire have been urging that we put on something in the nature of a program of citizenship education. Now, economy is all right in its way, but I submit there is little economy in cheeseparing on the education of our new citizens.
