High School and Celts
Win on Thursday
' Only two games of basketball
were played on Thursday, January
15th. The first was a very keen
game between the Pats aud the
High School Girls, the former winning by seven points to two. Baskets were few and far between,
but nevertheless the contest between these two teams was full of
good basketball.
Soores: Pats, K. Eve-5, T. Gordon 2.   High School, P. Louden-2.
The Senior A game that followed
was very even until half- way
through the second period, when
the score stood at 17 all, The

show their superiority, winning by
33 points to 17.

Basketball Games
On Monday
The Pats were up against a new
team on Monday in the Gym, the
newcomers  being  the    "Cadets."
Many rumors had been spread
around town as to the proposed
line-up of the Cadets, and in consequence there was a pretty good
attendance. Pats had no difficulty
in winning by the score of 18
points to 2. The Cadets will do
much better when they have had
some practice, and some of the
players need to get out of the
habit of playing towards tlieir own
The Celts suffered their first
defeat at the hands of the Sheiks
by the score of 20 to 19. The
Sheiks were far superior in the
first half and held a big lead over
the losers. Clarence Dresser being
the leading light for the winners.
Baskets seemed to came very frequently to the Sheiks and the
'Blues" at one time were all on the
defensive. The Celts seemed to be
off the target with their shooting.
In the second half belated changes
were made in the Celts' lineup
and these fresh players soon turned
the tide against the more or less
tired Sheiks who were without

though a narrow one, was deserved.

During the past six months the
knockers have had a grand innings.
They have resurrected their little
hammers they discarded during the
good times.   They have added to
to their weight and are enjoying
the thrill of knocking loud, long
and often. Even the most sanguine
optimist's voice is drowned by the
terrific din of the knockers.     Blue
ruin stares us in the face is the cry
of the pessimists, and as the dollar
becomes more elusive many listen
to them.   Hard times like a dose
of Epsom salts is very unpleasant,
but very purifying.   Hard times
quickly checks reckless expenditure.   It stops everyone gambling
with their savings, or plunging too
heavily into debt to provide themselves   with modern luxuries;   it
causes us to fondle a dollar bill
several times before passing it along
the trade channels, and it   encourages thrift.    Good   times   always
follow hard times, as sure as the
sunshine follows the shower.    It
has never been known to fail. The
inhabitants of this old world   have
had much tougher times than  this,
and they carried on and won   out.
This little trade depression will not
be   even remembered in a few
years.   Good   times are   coming
along as they always have.    We
may be slower in extricating ourselves from the present depression
than formerly.    In   the meantime
everyone is cutting their expenditure to meet their income.

British Columbia Will
Send Exhibit To
Buenos Aires
Victoria, January 12, 1931. The
Provincial Government has prepared a special exhibit for the
British Empire Trades Exhibition
in Buenos Aires which is shortly to
be opened by the Prince of Wales.
The B.C. Exhibit, though on a
comparatively small scale, will include specimens of timber, agricultural products, fisheries and manufactures.
One interesting exhibit that is
being sent out this week is a collection of furs produced on Vancouver Island fox farms. These
will include the fine Silver Fox
which won the Lieutenant-Governor's medal last year. There will be
twelve of these selected skins in all,
including Silver and Black and Red
Cross furs of the finest kind
There aggregate value is about
$2600, and they should prove a
useful advertisement of the possibilities of the province for fur farm-
B. C. Fur Farms Now
Number 360
There are in British Columbia
over 360 fur farms scattered all
over the province. Most of them
are devoted to raising foxes, but a
few specialize in other species such
as beaver, marten, mink, muskrats
and racoons. At the end of 1929
there were 3600 foxes reported on,
63,000 muskrats, 1900 mink, 120
beaver, 110 marten and 138 racoons. These farms are scattered
from the south of Vancouver Island
to north of Prince George. With
its many sheltered valleys and varieties of climate the province is
considered to be well adapted for
fur farming.

Beatty Makes Important Proposals
Aimed to Assist Western Farmers
G.P.R. President Galls on United Canada to Rally to Help of Courageous
and Loyal Pioneers—Such Action Just and Wise and
In Interest of Entire Country.
Western conditions and what
should be done about them
formed the subject of a notable
speech made by E. W. Beatty, chairman and president of the
Canadian Paci.
tlo Railway at
London, Ont.,
last week. Iu
direct and simple style Mr.
Beatty briefly
analysed the
western situation and put
forward a series of suggestions for immediate and
effective action designed to carry
western farmers over the present
period of adverse conditions. He
stated that his suggestions were
those of a private citan made with.
out the knowledge of any government authority in this country. He
put them forward as the representative of a corporation which extended
throughout all parts of Canada and
was vitally concerned in the economic situation in any section thereof. There was in this important
utterance no suggestion of anything
in the nature of intended charity
towards the West. The whole project, he said, should be directed by
warm sympathy for a community of
courageous pioneers threatened
with distress and by a desire to
provide just assistance when it is
badly needed. There should be full
appreciation of the fact that the
prosperity of East and West, of
farmer and city are Inextricably
linked together. He believed that
the country as a whole would come
to the assistance of a great section
suffering from a temporary but
severe depression from causes beyond Its control, not only because
It is just to do so, but as a wise
measure of national policy. Mr.
Beatty said ln part:
"Western Canada la suffering
from the effects of unusual world
conditions In the marketing of
grain and in its low price, and
hardship Is being experienced on
the prairies In consequence. I do
not need to elaborate on the courage and the resourcefulness of the
people of Western Canada, nor the
confidence many of them feel ln
their ability to come through this
depression as they have others. I
do not require to do more than
mention what we ln the East owe
to that part of the country, both in
a material way and ln the national
strength contributed by the loyal
people of that part of Canada.
Neither do I need to stress the importance of a knowledge of the conditions prevailing in those sections
and of the necessity of co-operation
in meeting unusual situations in
the interest of the whole country.
The former Government of Canada
and the present Government have,
at different times, adopted policies
designed to strengthen the economic position of different sections
of this Dominion. Through such
policies, the position of our Maritimes has been improved, and
through more recent changes ln
fiscal policies the position of the
manufacturers of Canada Is intended to be improved and the unemployment situation is likewise designed to be, in part, at least, alleviated by direct contribution by the
Federal authorities to public works.
If th3se policies be planned to accomplish betterment In certain
parts and activities ln Canada, then
the same attitude may properly be
adopted In relation to the peculiar
problems of our western provinces.
None of these suggestions which I
propose have any relation to the
question of marketing wheat, price
fixation or otherwise, since these
problems depend so much on world
conditions. I am directing my observations to the problem of meeting emergent conditions of great
hardship which may arise during
the nsxt four or five months.
"Obyiously, our Western producers should not fear the loss of
their equity ln their homesteads In
view of the frank unwillingness of
mortgage companies and other
holders of ltens to press for immediate liquidation of maturing
obligations or for arrears of interest beyond the ability of the farmer
to meet his payments, so far, at
least, as this Is due to the present
depression In the wheat market.
Two problems, however, do remain:
the fear of want during the coming
winter—confined largely to the
smaller and financially weaker
farmers—and the fear of Inability
to finance another year's farm operations.
"To me, an unprejudiced and unofficial, but not disinterested, ob.
server, It seems Indisputable tbe
Dominion Government Should not
hesitate to Intervene with an offer
of assistance, as a national public
duty. The governments of the three
prairie provinces, owing to their Intimate knowledge of local conditions, are best adapted to provide
relief, but owing to their pledging
of their credit aa security for bank
loans to the Wheat Pool, they may
need Federal assistance in the matter. If the Dominion Government
were to agree to assume a portion
of the obligations regarding the
1929 crop, and the provinces wera
to use this release of their credit
to permit them to assume the full
burden of relief to their citizens, ths
aid of the Dominion Government
would be given in a useful direction, and the operation of relief
measures by those best equipped
for the task would be assured.
These obligations should be assumed by the Dominion Government
only to an amount equivalent to
actual relief expenditures by the
Provinces in aid of farmers. Since
it Is inevitable that some critics
will assert that this Is specific aid
to members of the Wheat Pool, it
may be well to point out that the
reverse Is the case. The guarantee
of the Pool loans by the Provinces
might be so regarded, although
even in that case the Provinces
were unquestionably moved by a
daslre to save a collapse of the
wheat market that would hurt Pool
and non-Pool farmers alike. The
suggestion that the Dominion Government now assume those guarantees is made solely to enable the
Provinces to direct their best
efforts to the relief of all their
farmers, Pool members or not
"I would suggest, too, that as a
further aid to the restoration of
confidence and as an evidence of
complete faith by Important business interests In the future of agriculture in the West, an agriculture
credit corporation should be formed
to provide livestock for farmers
who wish to diversify their operations. The Company should be a
private corporation, organized in
somewhat the same form as that
organized in the United States, with
the support of the banks, Mortgage
Trust and Loan Companies, Insurance companies and the railways,
and, if thought advisable, perhaps
of the Federal Government itself.
The moneys should be repayable on
easy terms, the risk would be small,
and the administration costs would
be reduced to a minimum through
the voluntary nature of the undertaking. I would suggest that five
million dollars be raised in this
manner and that the project should
at all times be treated as one of
sound investment. This method of
aid would be specially valuable,
since many Western farmers would
find their domestic i economic
problems greatly simplified by the
addition of livestock to their farms,
and since every head of livestock
placed on a western farm aids fp
the marketing of surplus grain."

Miss Harding Will Star
In Tuesday's Show
One of the many mints of movie
money since the advent of talking
pictures has been the voice culture
studio. The most famous men and
women in pictures have thronged to
the studio of the vocal cord specialist. Among their number Ann
Harding was not included,
Nor is this solely due to the fact
that Miss Harding's dulcet tones
were a stage tradition for several
years prior to her film debut. According to Miss Harding herself,
the experience has proved of the
greatest benefit to her in facing
microphone came before she even
dreamed of a career as an actress.
When Miss Harding was a girl
in her teens she craved to be a business woman. One has to make a
beginning, and Ann fancied that
her career was safety launched
when she accepted a $12.50 a week
position in the offices ofthe Metropolitan Life Insurance Company.
The zeal and ability of the little
typist and file clerk attracted the
attention of her superiors. When
it was learned that she had studied
stenography at night she was promoted to a secretarial post. And
after a few months she progressed
to the point where she herself dictated letters, using a dictaphone
