Mr. MACLEAN (Prince):

There is a difference in that. In many of these, technical or educational training or special training along certain lines is required, but in this case possibly a farmer who would be handling grain would be better for the work than a technical man. Therefore, it looks to the outside observer as if it would not be necessary to have competitive examinations; but I think, when this is purely a farmers' organization and they are paying for the work, it would be quite within their rights to have the Board of Grain Commissioners appoint the men to do the work.
