On the question of anplyinc the compulsory sections of the Soldiers' Settlement and Land Sales Act to transfers o, - it was agreed to put before the Dominion executive a proposal that anomalies be removed as between the transfers of farms and houses, and the association urged that the present sv c tem of priority rehabilitation finance for men from active war theatres be abolished and that all returned men be placed on the same footing with regard to rehabilitation benefits.
