One of tim largest crowds that ever
came out tu a basketball game In
AgnsHiz were rewarded by a hard-
fought thrilling encounter between
Agassiz   and   Mission   Inst   Saturday.
Hard checking by both teams featured tho play, and there was very
little opportunity for open play. In
fact, in the first half only flv0 basket?, were scored, Agassiz leading af-
te*.'  the  firHt  twenty  minutes 6-4.
After tbe interval, the play opened
up a little, and Agassiz, who up to
this time had shown very little combination, began to get In some team
work, which netted them several baskets. Mission tried hard to equalize,
tut Agassli with another spurt forged abead, an(* nt the end of the game
lo.l  22-14. !   |i   |^H
For the local boys, Lyall Whelpton
with 18 points, and Ken Eoltert at
centre, starred, while Angus MacLean
was  the Pick of the  Mission  team.
In the opening game the Public
School girls again took the count of
the H.gh School girls 10-8. As the
score Indicates, It was a very even
contest, tho Public School having a
little edge on the High School in
speed and shooting.
The High School girls are coming
on wonderfully, and with a little
practice will soon be making the Puli-
llo School step to guard their laurels.

Bpeetly dissolution,
itin- group advocates tbe creation ol1 an Empire Pai'liamenl, witli Ministers
in ilm Overseas Dominions resident in London, a commou foreign policy, and
a dfilniii' scheme ol Empire defence, naval and military. In other words,
this group stands lot- a greater degree of centralization, Unless ihis is at-
tained, we are lold lho Empire must Inevitably >m io pieces.
Opposed to Ibis policy, certain other publicists seem lo suffer from n
continual nightmare thai the liberties and autonomous powers or lho Dominions are really iu danger and that a serious effort is being made to place the
far-flung portions of the Empire abjectly under tbe thumb of Downing Street,
The truth is, of course, that both theso groups are unnecessarily alarming themselves, while al tlie same time wasting valuable time and good paper
ami Ink in endeavoring to arouse the people over sdlnething which is nol
worrying them In the slightest.
The British Empire Is, after all, a mother countrj wiih a healthy family
of grown up sons. While these sons wero very, little chaps, mother looked
nfti-i- them and directed their more iniporiant affairs for them, lint as tbo
boys grew up thoy were gradually given larger liberty of decision and action
lor themselves. Thai is, *li" Empire has evolved and continues to evolve in
exactly tlie same way as the average family, Any father or mother deserving of the name is proud and happy lo see the children mow up, develop
character, become self-reliant, independent and prosperous.
In the family circle It is not demanded that as lhe children grow up they
shall sign some formal document declaring their love and loyalty'tn father
and mother and binding themselves lo discharge certain duties towards them
and accept certain responsibilities on Ihelr behalf.
Thai love and loyalty exists, and that is all there is lo it. No matter
bow lhe children may grow up, nor bow far scattered around lho world they
may he, and irrespective of tbe individual interests which may be developed
hy each, there yet remains a common bond which remains strong and unbreakable. In principle their chief interests are one, and each and all can
rely on tho others. What benefits one indirectly benefits all, although nol
necessarily io the sunn.' extent, and loss to one indirectly and adversely
affects all.
The same principle holds good in the ease of lho British Empire. The
analogy is perfect. Australia may he vitally interested in something which
only remotely, if at all, affects Canada. But ii Australia in working oul that
particular problem gains in strength ami becomes more contented and prosperous, u makes lor Canada's gain indirectly. If anyone doubts ibis, let
him recall what tbo si length ol each of the Dominions meant to the others
iu the Great War, when, combined, Ihey placed over one million soldiers in
lhe Held, and, as Lloyd George declared at Ottawa Ihe other day, had it nol
been so the history of the world would have lo be re-written.
There may be times and questions where Ihe Interests of various parts of
lhe Empire may come into conflict, jusl as occasions arise when the interests
of Individual members of a family do not parallel each other bul sharply
diverge. Tills would happen just tho same if each was an independent,
sovereign nation. Bul. because till are members of one family, a greater degree of consideration for each other is shown, There Is a willingness to compromise, lo adopt a mutual policy of give and lake, which In the end benefits
There tire, however, many w;i\ in which the mother country and each of
the Dominions can directly assisi lhe others, without involving them in any
forin of centralized government or control, which might at times prove Irksome and lend to irritation resulting in frlcilon and a loss of that sentiment
and unify of purpose now characterizing tlie Empire as a whole
Other countries are working out policies for Ihelr own particular boneflt
regardless of ihe otteol on other peoples and nations. Franco seeks to Impose Inr own will and policy on Europe; Ktissla. under the Soviet regime,
would convert the.whole world lo tbe theories of communism; lho United
Slates erects a tariff itgalnsl the world In lhe belief that 11 is laduclvo lo the
prosperity of tho republic.
Why. then, should not the British Empire develop voluntary preferences
to a far greater extenl than heretofore botween lis several par.ls and thereby
confer mutual advantages on each other adding Btrenglh and prosperity in ihe
whole. And this can he done wllhotll adopting the dangerous policy of centralization of authority, without In the slightest degree lessening tho autonomy of each Dominion, and, so fur from weakening, result iu strengthening
•he ties of Empire.

World's Time For Radio
Map Eliminates Need for Calculation
By Berlin Operators
At ihe Immonao new central transmitting station in Berlin, it was imperative that the sending operators
should know the exact, time in any
other part of the world at a given moment, Some form of clock was found
necessary, that, would indicate day and
night, and simultaneously Indicate the
lime at all other important radio stations throughout the world. A map
of the world was therefore placed on a
circular glass dial, on the outer edge
of which two twelve-hour scales wore
graduated at flve-mlliuto intervals.
This dial, being darkened around half
the edge, to indicate where It. Is night,
is moved aiouml by clockwork. Arrows extend from the stations on the
map to the edge, Indicating the approximate limes al any given moment.
The entire device, moving across the
shaded area, eliminates need for calculation by the operator.

Scientist Of Carnegie Institute
Believes Centre Or The Earth
To Be Mass Of Solid Gold
"The In-art of the earth," says a
new theory, "Is a heart of gold," At
tho very centre of tho globe there may
be millions of tons of pold and silver
and pliuinuni and the oilier heavy
This Is not mere pliniilastlc specie
Ihtlon, hut sohor deduction from the
most critical Investigation over made
In lhe chemistry of tin1 earth's crust
—an investigation conducted hy the
acknowledged world authority on this
subject, Dr. Henry S. Washington, of
tho Carnegie Institution of Washington, D.C.
In-. Washington, studying over 5,000
trustworthy chemical analysis of lho
crust of the earth, found thnl tin- diluents common In the crust are exclusively those of llghtor weiKht. Tho
heavier elements occur only In tho
most minute proportions. Gold, for
Instanco, composes less than ono-mll-
llein-tli of one per cent, of the earth's
Yet Dr. Washington thinks it is Improbable that these heavier elements
nro always lacking. Then where is
Mother Earth's missing quota of gold,
platinum and other heavy elements?
Have they hidden themselves away
out of reach?
Dr. Washington believes that they
have, lie think thafthe earth was
once molten. While it was In tills
condition the lighter elements rose to
the surface; the heavier ones sank.
He thinks that millions of tons of the
missing elements are inside the earth
At the very centre he would expect
to find a core of the heaviest elements
—such as platinum, gold, antimony
and osmium, the latter (lie heaviest
known substance, familiar to all In
that natural alloy, "Indium," used for
the tips of gold pens. Out side tills
sphere of precious metals there is, perhaps, a zone of those elements that
nre little less heavy—copper, silver
and lead. If there is a zone of iron,
as Dr. Washington thinks there is,-It
presumably comes next. Clear out-
side, on top of all the metallic zones,
Is the surface layer of the lightest elements— the slag layer, the rocky
crust on which we live.
If tills Is true, where do the veins
of gold, silver, and copper that are
mined In the earth's crust come from?
The generally accepted scientific answer is that they have been brought
upward by seepages of hot mineralized water from the depths of tbe earth.

Is Just as strong, or stronger, on the
land. Why. then, are Ihere nol, tidal
waves in tho solid ground as there
are in the sea? Obviously, just because It is solid -because the land is
too firm nnd rigid lo yield lo lhe tidal
pull Ihe way lhe water does.
Lord Kelvin figured out in tons
the amount of these tidal pulls on the
land. They wen; stupendous; many
times larger than any possible resisting slreiiglh of the fill or (Kl-iulle
j crust then supposed in constitute the
only solid part of the globe.     If we
• really tried lo live on a thin, rocky
crust floating on a sen of liquid lava,
we should not last one day. Inside
of 21 hours the solid ground would
smash   under   our feel.    Twice each
' day a vast wave of melted rock liun-
I dreds of feet high, would roll round
Inside the shell of the earth, bursting
through it and overwhelming every
Vestige of anything solid.
There actually docs exisl, it, is true,
in the hind as well as hi I lie ocean, a
tide, but It is a few Inches high Instead of hundreds of feet. It is tho
kind of tidal rise and fall that would
happen in a very rigid solid—not in a
ball of crusted liquid. We may be
quite sure, then, that the earth as
a whole is a huge solid ball.
This view Prof. Hobbs lias lately
brought out in his book, "Earth
Evolution and Us Facial Expression," though he prefers tlie word
"rigid" to tlie word "solid," for rigidity Is only one of the properties of
solids. Under the tremendous pressure and temperatures, inside % the
earth, It is possible that the properties of matter are not the same as
wo know them on the surface. Things
may be "rigid" and still lack some
other property of "solids." Prof.
Hobbs explains the origin of such a
rigid earth among the blazing,
gaseous stars of space by reference
to a new theory of how the earth
was formed—tho so-called "planet-
esmnl hypothesis.
This hypothesis begins by Imagining the sun ns a single star, a llttlo
larger and hotter probably than It Is
now. There were no planets sweeping around It then. Along came another star. It happened to pass so
close to the sun that the gravitational
attraction between the two bodies
pulled out a lot of lho matter from
the sun.
These enormous pulled-out "drops"
of matter began lo revolve about the
Bun.    In time, as they  collided  with
■ one another, sticking together when
Ihey siruek, they gathered Into great
j lumps.     These lumps are the planets
, we   know   today—Venus,   Mars   and
I the others, also tho earth.

IS71. when lhe Bra! census of the now
ly federated dominion was taken. Can- j
mill was found lo have a population of!
3,485,701, and of lliese 24,102 recorded I
their birthplace as the United Slates.
This was equivalent to nm quite seven-tenths or l  per cent, of tho total
population,     Al the time of the 1901
census Ihere wen- 127,899 citizens ol
American birth in Canada.     In that I
of 1911 there were 303,680, representing 4.1 i„r cent, of the total population at Ihe lime.     From 1911 lo 1921
a total of 748,118 citizens of tho 1'nii
ed Stales entered Canada, so that at
the present time there nre well over
1,000,000 people in Canada who have
been citizens of the United States, or
something like 12 per cent, of lho total
Dominion population.
The tidal How of United Slates set-
tiers to Canada started with the offering or free Crown lands as homesteads, and inducement that drew prospective settlers from every country of
the globe. The American immigration tide lia's always beet" of prime
value, because It. Is most purely an
agricultural one. Nearly the entire
aggregate of American settlers is to
be found In the western provinces,
where they have either homesteaded or
purchased land, Between the years
1S97 and 1919 some 27 per cent, of
United Stales, settlers coming lo Western Canada made, application for
homesteads, as against 18 per cenl. of
British nationality, and when It Is
considered Hint more Americans buy
Improved farms than newcomers from
any other country, the extenl lo which
they are developing Canadian agrlcul-
lural'.uriil lands may be appreciated.
Slnco tile government threw open its
Crown lauds and initiated its homestead policy, about 100,000,000 acres
have been settled, and United States
citizens have accounted for 90 per
cent, of such settlement, as against
20 per cent, of filings on the part of
settlers from the British Isles.
Since tho war, owing to the disturbance lu economic conditions, no less
than to Canada's immigration policy,
tl»e flow from the United States litis
to some extent fallen off. The movement was in lhe ascendent when the
war broke out; in 1913, the record
year, some 139,009 American citizens
crossed tlie border. After the war
the average contribution was about
50,000 per annum until 1922, when only
some 24,000 arrived. The Republic's
donation is still of the same high
quality, however, and almost purely
agricultural. Though the extent ol
homestead land is rapidly diminishing,
American settlers come to Canada
with ample funds to purchase Inrge
acreages. In the not inconsiderable
total of 7,319 homestead filings in
1922, Americans took second pluco.
A further aspect of this United
States immigration tide which makes
It so desirable from Canada's polnl of
view Is the amount of wealth 11. carries with it. Most United Slates Immigrants are fanners who have sold
out high-priced lands with t'be Intention of either lioinesteadlng or purchasing low-priced lands of huge ex-
lenl In Canada, and who arrive furnished with considerable funds and
fully equipped lo Inltlnlo Ihelr new enterprises immediately, The average
Immigrant from the Unltod Stales Is
much richer lhan lhe Immigrant from
nny other country. It Is estimated
Hint lho average wealth of the British
Immigrant to Canada In ii few years
reaches $100, while that of oilier nationals Is considerably less. Against
llils, to review only recent years, the
average wealth brought In by each
Unltod Slates Immigrant In 1919 was
$312; in 192n, $372Mn 1921, J312; and
in 1922, $102. In .1919 lhe volume of
United Stales Immigration to Canada
was responsible for bringing Into the
country about $14,000,000; In 1920
about $18,500,000; in 1921. $14,000,000;
and In 1922 about $10,0011,000.—E. L.

Paper Plant In West
Plant Near Winnipeg to Have Initial
Capacity cf 120 Tons Per Day
Erection of tho first pulp anil paper
i plant in the prairie provinces at a cost
or $3,000,000 bas begun near Winnipeg. The plant will have an Initial
capacity of 120 tons of newsprint a
day ami will, it is believed, furnish
paper to the middle-western market of
the United States.
Location ol the plant in the west,
it is said, is an Indication of the expansion ol tho Canadian newsprint industry. It was once thought that the
pulp wood supplies of tho prairie provinces would not he railed into requisition for years, but the increased eonsuniplion oi* the middle-western states
and their proximity to the prairie
provinces has brought about the demand. Newsprint production in tho
Dominion rose from (jfJ0,250 tons in
1921 lo 1,031,364 ton* in 1*J22 and this
year, it is reported, it will show even
greater gains.

an unusually high type and It i.s believed that they will make tbo very

9EFORB any steamship had crossed the ocean, and before either the locomotive or the telegraph had been invented,
nine merchants of Montreal signed articles for the formation
of the "Montreal Bank," .now the Bank of Montreal. That

Since that time Montreal has grown from a town of less

The Bank, in continuous and successful operation from those early dayi

Murray and 1 made ii a point to go
to Teddy's club tlancos whenever ho
asked us, and wo had several of his
friends at the house. Then* really
was nothing wrong with Iheni, in most
cases, except youth. Tho boys were
like Teddy, fond of posing as experienced and somewhat dissipated men
of the world, bul really only growing
children under it all. And the girls
were "good sports," amazingly sell-
possessed, and always effective,
whether they were pretty or not.
"Am I so old, or just old-fashioned?" i asked Murray ono nighl after
our guests had gone.
lie laughed.
"Neither, you are just different," ho
replied. "It was ;i lovely war, Mar
garet-Anno. Vou and 1 are ante-bellum, there is a whole era between us
and those youngsters; the calendar
has nothing to do with it."
i fancy lie was right. And perhaps
if more people fell as Murray does
there would be less criticism of the
present generation. As to Teddy,
tho boy was so transparently frank
that we always knew when' ho was
and what ho was doing, almost what
ho was thinking. And 1 felt certain

devoled lo mini—one of his most lovable trails was that even in public he
was never embarrassed by their
demon strati vencss.
Whether it. waa tho coming of tlie
wanner weather or the result of the
winter's cold 1 do not know, but as
spring advanced it was evident that
Murray's condition had ceased to Improve,
For some time he had been gaining

especially as lie refused to eonsull a

that what lie n led was absolule rest
and n liquid did, but his stubborn refusal to iu* "fussed over" was so good
a sign of Ms improved condition otherwise that I allowed him to have ids
own way.
I blamed myself afterwards for nol
being more insistent, for ono wet evening he cartP' homo from the ollice with

the examination, but he assured me,
when he .followed mi' Lo the dining-
room afterwards, that there was no
immediate danger.
"We'll gel him Into hospital al
once," he said, "His general condition is none loo good, and lie has a
IlABty touch ol pleurisy, but I see no
reason why lie should not pull through

.Murray was as weak ;,s a baby, as
shadowy as when he flrsl came home,
and il was more than a month before
he could leave the hospital. 1 was
so glad then thai I had found our cottage in the suburbs, lor bad we been
living in rooms downtown I should
have had lo send him away, As it
was. he had fresh air ami quiet at

wished l had lofl the task of telling

Teddy's noUy entrance saved ihe
situation, for 1 fell like weeping on
Murray's shoulder, and that would
have been bad for us both.
Teddy had overheard a part oi our
conversation, and with his usual im*
pulsivenes she jumped into the middle
of It.
"Did 1 hear someone say 'farming?'"
he asked. "Sure we are going farming, every last, man of us. Margaret-
Anne and I had it all planned weeks
ago, while you were making love to
the nurses, didn't we, Sid?" '
"Well, hardly planned," I said. In
reply to Murray's look of enquiry. I
told Teddy what the Doctor said,-and
he declares that wherever we go he
will go too."
"Sure, old man," Raid Teddy seriously, "I've got so used to being a
family man while you were away that
I'd miss the responsibility if it were
removed—that is a nice touch, Isn't
It?" as Murray smiled faintly. "Anyway, I'm abotu fed up with the bank.

with less enthusiasm, "we couldn't
very well take Sis nnd the kids to a

Murray was almost himself again,
and the more we talked of leaving the
! oily for a time tlie more lho Doctor's
, advice appealed  to us.     Dr. Sutherland had told us frankly that Murray
j had no organic dlsoaso, but that ho

if he were  to regain his  health  ho
must, change his mode of life.
