An account of the soccer game played last Saturdsty afternoon in Vancouver Ibetveen Wood Fibre and
Ladysmith will .probably be ot Interest to many of the soccer fans ol
Cumberland. The Islander scribe
waa present at the game and met several of t'ie old time Cumberland players just prior to the game. Monaghan
Brake, Hitchens amd Stewart were out
for Wood Fibre, whilst Sandy Strang
and Stan. Tail were doing duty for
Ladysmith. All these players hove
at one time or another been connected
with the Cumberland or the Canadian Collieries team and it was like
old times to see these boys In action
once more., And some action. So fa
as football goes—well, there was very
little of it. All tlie players mention
ed above are capable of a much hette;
performance and frankly speaking tht
writer was greatly disappointed a:
tihe play. After fourteen minutes oi
play Ladysmlth scored through Halli-
man.and; this was followed a fen
minutes later by a goal from Minto.
No more goals were scored the game
ending in a victory for Ladysmlth by
the two goals obtained ln the early
period.   After the second goal, Wood
• Fibre bucked up a little and tried
hard for a goal. The Ladysmlth
backs had no difficulty in holding the
■ Fibre forwards, Tail being very rare
' ly troubled. Monaghan during the
first half could not get going, in fact
Jack was decidedly off with "Wally'
: Brake trailing him close behind. Jack
■ Stewart and Hitohens were about the
pick of the team, the former giving n
great   exhibition.     Ladysmith    had
• easily three, parts of the play in the
first half and fully deserved the two
goals.
The second opened in Wood Fibre'.-
favor and It was during this period
t that Jack Monaghan began to lint!
limiself. He improved one hundred
per dent and gave a very good display. Brake also Improved and the
Fibre boyB lad a little better of the
second half but we're very weak in
front of the goal. Stewart continued
the good work during the second1 half
and was the best man en the field

place the game ending with the Island team victors by the two goals
scored In the early stages ot the
game.
The ex-Cumberland players appear
to be doing well at Wood Fibre and
are perfectly contented. Jack Monaghan has been excelling at other
sports whilst: in the Howe - Sound
district, capturing the men's single-
trophy in Badminton. Mrs. Monaghan was also successful lit winning
the ladles' singles trophy.

Many Spectators
There was a fairly good turnout
of spectators on Easter Monday at
the Courtenay Bill Park to witness
the first cricket game of the season,
between Mr. McMonies' team and a
team got together toy Mr. Barney Harvey. Scoring was not very high, only
seventy four runs beln scared by both
teams. , Mr. McMonies' eleven obi
talned forty-one runs as against thirty-three  by  Mr. jHarvey's  stalwarts.

SUDDEN DEATH
FIFTY YEARS AGO it was an unusual thing
for a man to drop dead. Sudden death was
an uncommon tragedy unless the result of
accident. Men lingered for months on beds of
pain and sickness until death came as a welcome
relief. Today men fall in their tracks, the summons comes swiftly and often without warning.
No matter how much money you may have, you
cannot buy a single minute of time beyond that
alloted to you. Time will never tell you how
many more hours belong to you, and that is a good
thing.
If you could know the day of your death, it
would fix your intentions, probably limit your ambitions and stall your determination. You would
decide to do just so much and no moire. You would
always count on a certain hour when you were
about to stop.   Fortunately for all of us we cannot
world are wasting invaluable days and years trying to do what they never can do where they are.
Every human being was,intended to do some one
thing better than any other thing, but the trouble
is, many want to be in on what they think will
prove the most pleasing position, irrespective of
their qualifications.
It is surprising how many square pegs are
trying to fit into round holes, how many men are
in the right barn but the wrong stall.
The first and foremost thought in any man's
mind should be to save the days and years wasted
while in the wrong position. This saving of lost
time can be accomplished just as accurately as
you would weigh a ton of coal or measure a floor
for a carpet,
Q
WHY THE HURRY
OOD MANNERS seem to be at a premium
thes days—there is so little evidence of
them anywhere. Wherever you go, judging
from the conduct of all species of the human race,
it is each fellow for himself irrespective of age or
physical handicap. We have seen youg, vigorous,
physically strong men and women sit comfortably
in cars, trains and ferry boats while the old, the
infirm and lame travelled standing up as best
they could. But even worse, these same younger
generation have rushed pushed and fought to get
into a conveyance, even bowling over those less
secure on their feet. *
In a mad effort to get ahead of everyone, every-
.   ,     ,     ..,   ,,.,, , where, the timid, frail and polite humans arc

The Extra Stamina You Need
for Spring Driving
Equipping with Gum-Dtpped Tires Is an investment la
extra safety, speed, comfort and economy. That is why thousands of motorists throughout the country use these tires.
On wet, slippery streets and highways—around sharp turn*
—maneuvering in and out of traffic—stopping suddenly—
you can always depend on the powerful Firestone non-skid
tread to hold without slip or skid.
Supporting this safety tread is the special Gum-Dipped
carcass, built of cords dipped in a rubber solution which saturates and insulates every fibre of every cord with rubber.
This minimizes the friction and heat of high speed service,
and strengthens the whole structure of the tire to withstand
heavy strains.
No one can foresee the demand you may have to place on your
tire equipment in some emergency. But you can prepare
now—and be sure of a fighting chance in any situation—by
having the nearest Firestone Service Dealer apply new Gum-
Dipped Tires all around. He will save you money and serve
you better.

DOES CANADA NEED
A FEDERAL FARM
LOAN SYSTEM
By Dermot A.  Davies
In studying agricultural credits we
are faced by two aspects of demand.
One the one hand the call for long
term loans, to run for a period extending anywhere from three to thirty years or more. And on 'the other
hand the demand for intermedials
credit, running anywhere from three
months to two years, although more
generally of one year's duration. It
Is superfluous to elaborate the reasons for the 'demand for these variou
terms here, since they are sufficiently
well known to everyone. The two
phases will be separated, beginning
with a discussion of long term credit
Mr. Tory has given a very lucid and
condensed description of the history
and working out of the credit system
in many parts of the world. Unfortunately for us our conditions, both
economic and psychological,are entirely different from those existing in
the European countries mentioned
Of the two it Is perhaps the psychoi
oglcal difference whioh is greatest, so
that we cannot expect remedies which
suited' tbe French or German peasant
with his peculiar temperament to suit
the diverse characteristics of the Canadian farmer. The application of this
will be seen below when we notice
the worging of tbe People's Bank in
Quebec.
The country which most nearly approaches our conditions is the United
States. Her peoples are similar, tier
crops are somewhat similar (having
large one-crop areas) and her climate
in the northern states is not very far
removed from ours. We could not
do better then, than to obtain some
information as to the working out of
the Farm Loan Board in the United
States. In this connection I have
found it advisable to get the latest
available information, so that Tory's
Report will be, of necessity of little
help.
It may ibe stated briefly that it has
been estimated that the necessity
arose In the United States for a Federal Board due to the disappearance
of cheap lands and the consequent
rise ln value of all other farming land.
This is of Interest to us, because it is
a condition that we must expect to
face In tbe next ten or fifteen years.
From a financial point of view it
Is undeniable that the Federal Land
Banks have paid. They are operating
on a 1 .per cent basis, and are accumulating a very satisfactory reserve
fund. They Ihave also lowered, the
rate of interest to the farmer. To
those who offer the criicism that they
are forcing private enterprises out of
business, a few figures may be of interest. The Federod Loan Board can
authorize private individuals with a
certain paid-up capital to form joint
stock land 'banks ln any district, ln
competition with the Federal Land
Banks.
In 1921, 21 Joint stock land banks
closed 881. loans for a total of $9,334,-
900 and 12 Federal land banks closed
27,153 loans for a total of $91,029,976.
In 1922, 43 joint stock land' tanks
closed 16,916 loans for a total of 138,-
884, 779 and 12 Federal tend banks
closed 74.055 loans for a total of $224,-
301,400. In 1926, 57 Joint stock land
banks closed 100,199 loans for a total
of 727,748,388 and the Federal form
Loan. Board closed 409,570 loans for
a total of $1,274,855,666.
These figures indicate the phenomenal growth of the loans made by the
'olnt stock banks and the subsequent
iteady growth.
There has been some confusion on
ihe subject of the extension of credit
>y the land banks. There are those
vho say that they have failed because
they have not made credit .easier
. That, of course, shows little reflection
I upon the part of the critic, since it
Is generally recognized that it is not
easier credit that tbe farmer wants
\ iut cheaper credit. "The best farmers In Saskatchewan today are not
inking for easier credits, they are
asking lower rates of Interest, based
upon real security which they are willing to give."* The land banks, then,
wll not lend unless tbe farmer can
offer adequate security, but °u the.
ither hand they are sufficiently Interested in the farmer's problems to
nake sure that be has not the security before they refuse, as /witness the
very careful survey made when a.i
lppllcatlon for a loan is received.
The Federal Farm Loan Board has
xlso forced the adoption of tlie amortization scheme for the payment of
'oans. This may or may not be a
'iad policy (there has been much violent controversy on both sides) but it
ias certainly been beneflcieiit to tbe
armer, and bias been adopted widely
>y the commercial  concerns.
There Is one. criticism which has
■een levelled at the banks which is
substantially true, and that Is that
'Iielr introduction has not materially
altered the number of foreclosures.
This criticism ibas been offered to
prove that they are therefore a failure. But we are all too prone to
'hlnk that a measure must be either
a panacea for all ills or it must be a
Cailure. On the contrary, no measure
which can be devised can be fairly
expected to put all the farmers on
lasy street. The best that can be expected is that a large percentage of
tiie more efficient will be able to
make it pay. It Is therefore worthy
of note that there has 'been tt decline
In the number of foreclosures. The
reason for the small decrease will be
brought out below.
To i sum up the main points which
have been brought out by the Federal
Land Banks. They have not been a
loss to the Government. They have
lowered the interest rate (and made
the rate more general). They have
not advanced easier credit. They
have encouraged rather tham prevented1 the growth of private banks. They
have adopted the amortization scheme
And they have not materially affected
the number of foreclosures.
The Conditions in Canada are, as
has been stated previously, somewhat
analogous. And yet we have one very
important factor which is different
and that is the density of our rural
population. There are ln Canada vast
areas unoccupied territory yet. The
farming communities are for the most
part small and' scattered (speaking of
Canada as a whole). And1 for that
reason iwe are, as Mr. Tory points out,
in the stage that America was ln thirty years ago. That Is one very serious
difficulty,, about trying to institute any
sort of national organization for credits' In Canada. This scattered condition of the farming population would
in all probability lead to a condition
that was prevalent In the United
States at first under the Federal
scheme; namely, that the volume of
business done was not sufficient to
allow for a profit on the 1 per cent
margin.
In Canada (and generally speaking
for the farmers as a whole), It has

been estimated that the farmer's return upon their investment Is '
to 4V6 per cent. There are, of course,
many who are making a great deal
more than that. But the average return may be taken at that figure. With
a.return so low, It Is manifestly impossible for tbe average farmer to
borrow and pay 8 per cent or more.
Incidentally a reduction in the Interest rate to even 6 per cent would not
enable all the farmers to borrow even
if they had the security, lt is for this
reason that the Federal Farm Loan
Board in the United States has failed
to materially alter Ihe number of foreclosures.
A brief glance at the experiences of
some of the provinces In Canada may
reveal some Information that is helpful. Mr. Tory has gone into the details of the working of the various
schemes, so it will be necessary here
to take his findings only, verified,
where possible, by more recent information. In one particular is this
information interesting. That in every province where the scheme
(where operative at all) has proved
a burden on the public, we find that
the largest proportion of the loans
have been made for the purpose of
clearing  previous  encumbrances.
In Ontario, where the Idea Is considered successful, 4 per cent of the
loans have been made for the purchase of new lands,
In Quebec, we have a unique situation due to tbe unity of nationality,
religion and habits of the people,—
condition met with in European countries but nowhere else on the American! continent (on a scalle of similar s|ze).
In SaBkachewan, the undertaking Is
considered sound, and the greater
number of loans have been made for
farm purchase. In other words, borrowing for production purposes Is a
sound  proposition.
In British Columbia certainly, the
scheme has been a financial burden
on the tax payer, and here we notice
that the majority of the loans have
been to clear off previous debts.
So much for a study of condlitons
in the past. That, if any, are the
conclusions to be drawn? The first
Is that if any system of government
controlled credits cannot be run as a
philanthropic enterprise to the detriment of the tax-paying public. It
must be on a sound financial basis.
The second conclusion is that If, us
In the States, the Interest rate is lowered, it merely means that a number
of farmers who are now unable to
borrow because their returns upon
Investment are too low, will be enabled to obtain credit for the greater
efficiency of manaegment of their
farm. In other words, more farmers
will be able to borrow for Increasing
their production. The system will
undoubtedly bring a number of borrowers into the field whose security Is
adequate, but who will be unable to
make good. This evil is not confined
to farmers alone, as will be clear ir
we reflect on the number of optimistic
enterprises which are started in commercial lines when credit is cheaper.
Looking Into the future we are
on less; 8ure ground, and it behooves
us to be all tbe more careful in our
statements. It will, however, be conceded that Canada will In the future
face a marked increase in population.
which means a rise in land value.',,
and a probable situation analogous to
that in the United Sates. We have
not however, reached that state a."
yet, and still we are In a condition
in which the farmer's position Is of
sufficient importance to merit our
serious endeavor to alleviate his lot.
Frankly, I do not think that we are
immediately justified in organlzling'
a Federal Loan Board for long terms,
Ibecaus© the scattered condition of
the farmers would not enable it to
advance credit in competition with
plrvate enterprises at a sufficiently
cheap rate to be beneficial to the
farmer, and yet yield a margin of reserve to the Board. The time will
undoubtedly come when it will be
feasible to do so, hut it has not yet
arrived.
There Is one question which must
inevitably occurr to anyone who has
made a study of the farmer's problems, and that Is, why is he In this
position of "uttier bankruptcy," as
some exponents have expressed It.
Prevention is certainly better than
cure, and if we can get at the root of
the matter we will not need to subsidize the farmer. Many arguments
hove been advanced extending all the
way from the fact that ihe buys in a
protected market and sells in a
".world market" to the fact that he
works only three or four months out
of the year. Some of the arguments
have a grain of truth, others are just
propaganda. The real curse has been
stated In tlle part above, that the average return on investment Is only
4 to VA per cent. Thus, while credit
Is an Important factor in any business
enterprise, that business must be on
a paying basis before It can make us,'
of the credit. >
INTERMEDIATE CREDITS.
The matter of Intermediate credit
is one which concerns the bank Immediately. In this respect the Canadian banks are in a very favorable
position because their branch bank
system allows them a facility of money circulation to meet extraordinary
demand, and also the poslblllty of
small turnover at any one branch,
the latter being more and more recognized In commerce generally by tlie
organization of tbe "chain stores."
There have been many charges levelled at the banks. The main one
made by Mr. Tory is to the effect Hint
their charier will not permit them to
lend on other than liquid security,
and as the farmer's needs extend anywhere from Itihree months to "two.
years, with th? preponderance of
needs being about six to nine months
duration', the banks are therefore some
what chary of lending or else thc-y
have to call their loans in at a" Inconvenient time for the farmer.
To this the hanks reply that they
do, and are milling to lend for harvest
of crop, seeds and live stock, etc.. and
that they do, and are willing to renew
the notes.    Both statements are true
under certain conditions. In periods
of good prices or good harvest the
notes are renewed. But since the local manager is responsible for the
loan, he is very liable to call lt In
at the first sign of poor conditions,
which of course does .not help the
farmer.
To the charge that interest rates
are exorbitant, I have been unable
to uncover any definite information
that they are so (even in the west).
It is true that in some isolate oases
that the rate has been nine an one-
fifth per cent, but that was under exceptional circumstances, and not a
| general rate. Incidentally, "store
credit" i3 very much higher, reaching
as high as 20 per cent, only as It Is
not announced the farmer apparently
does not feel It.
I think that undoubtedly the recent
trend In the direction of co-operative
producers' organizations will prove
the salvation of the fanner if properly
organized; They d0 not lessen the
personal security of the farmer, on
which hank loans are so largely made
and nt the same time they will enable
the fanner to repay his loan more
promptly (in the case where they advance a certain percentage of the
price to the farmer on delivery of
his crop) and the added security to
the bank, of knowing that the farmer
will get a high enough price to cover
the loan, will tend—or should tend-
to lower the Interest rate. Incidentally, if the farmer can pay bis loan off
sooner, and get along without it, he
'- saving the Interest.
To sum the whole situation briefly
would say that while It is undoubted
that the farmer is ln a poor position
his basic trouble does not lie in credit.
As regards long term loans he Is entitled to a cheaper rate if it cam be
successfully secured, but In Canada,
st present, this is not possible. As
regards intermediate credit, the banks
have done their share, but co-operation should be fostered, as lt tends
to give the farmer Increased stability
of price and credit.

Communicable Diseases
There is a fairly large group of
diseases which are called communicable—Diptheria, Scarlet Fever, Measles, Whooping cough, Pneumonia,
Tuberculosis, Typhoid Fever, Smallpox and Chicken Pox, to name some
of the more common ones in this
country. They are given this name
because ot one outstanding and Important characteristic. They are all
spread from one person to another,
from the sick to the well, and usually
tlie spread Is fairly direct.
The reason why these diseases are
communicable is that they are all
caused by disease germs. Disease
germs are so small that we cannot
see them without the aid of the microscope; for that reason they are
called microscopic. They live, grow
and multiply Just as truly as if they
were many times bigger.    It 1b the
 •■■■ ""'vn;'" !'
transference of these living disease
germs from the sick to the well which
accounts for the spread of .the communicable diseases. Each ot the communicable diseases Is caused by Its
own special germ.; The disease germ
which causes Diptheria never caused
any other diseases', and .no-bother disease germ ever caused; Diptheria. j
Disease germs do not grow In nature outside the ' human' or animal
body. The/ may exist for - a time
but they do not grow and multiply.
Some of them are hardier than others
but sunlight kills them aj^in.a shqrt
time. Bad smells are offensive ahd
we do not want "therfl,' bu^tail smells
do not cause communicable; diseaass.
Such diseases'are'.'alwaysi caused by
mse ot tpe
germs, add
fact that these disease germs die comparatively quickly outside ot the human body, the spread Is practically
direct from the sick person to the
well. The spread ot most of them ,1s
by the transference of the germ ladtn
secretions of the sick person to tjie
well by coughs, sneezes, klssliig,
lingers soiled wtlh saliva, or commpn
eating and drinking utensils.        [

and shot a basket from a difflclt angle

at half time by the score of 24-20.

was a repetition of the first, one team

the 'ball was moving at lightning

Spar Tree Breaks, Letting The
Tackle Down on Unfortunate Victim
With the many logging camps ln
this district, logging accidents are of
such common occurrence that they
create little comotlon but the community was distinctly shocked on
Wednesday morning when they heard
that Harry Taylor, a local boy, had
been killed while at work at the Dollar Camp at Deep Bay, between 9:30
and 10 o'clock. It appears that without any warning at all the spar tree
snapped letting down the heavy tackle
and Taylor, who was working as a
loader, was struck down terribly Injured. Besides being struck on the
head, both legs were broken and other
injuries sustained.   The men carried

the time they reached there. An Inquest Is being held at the Provincial
Police Office this evening.
The deceased was the son of Mrs.
James E. Taylor, of Oyster River, by
a former marriage but has always
been known by the name of Harry
Taylor and for many years resided ln
Courtenay, practically growing up
here and was well known and liked
by all. For the past two or three years
he had been working for the Hilton
Logging Company at Black Creek but
since they closed down last fall has
been with the Dollar Company.
Besides his mother and foster father
Harry leaves two brothers, Leslie and

"Pm in a pretty
pickle," Jack was telling a friend. "Guess I
didn't make myself very
clear in a letter to Helen.
Anyway,, she misinterpreted it, and she's furious. Says she'll never
forgive me. I could explain if I could only see
her, but she's 100 miles
away. Pm afraid if I
write again it'll make
matters worse."
"But you don't have
to write," the friend
said. "Why not call
her by long-distance telephone?"
The "tip" was taken.
Jack telephoned to Helen,
and within a few minutes
the misunderstanding had
been ironed out and happiness restored.
