he appeared to wish an answer from
Mr. Howe, to the effect that having
called the gathering which had just
been held, and having heard the views
expressed, that the department would
.nercupon close its doors against other
suggestions of a major character which
might come later.
Mr. Howe observed, "Have you any
suggestions to oiler which you have not
presented?"
"Yes," came the reply from the Dominion member.
"We are here for the purpose of
hearing it, and of presenting any such
suggestions," said Mr. Howe.
"i do not want to knock down some-
thtng that has not been raised here,"
juered Mr. Neill.
'If anything is in your mind, I would
.ice ii presented." said the minister.
"We want everything brought forward

Mr. Null said that he did not want
something brought up later when they

"I don't know what you are talking
about," said Mr. Howe.
The West Coast Fishermen's Association urged thc government to stop

Jietr water, to reforest streams already

Mr. Neill strongly urged passage of

Was this due to the fact that they

Wedding
Cameron - Gibson
Of Interest to many friends Is the i
announcement of the marriage of Miss
Margaret Louise Gibson, daughter of j
the late Mr. and Mrs. J. Gibson, and '
Samuel McLcllan Cameron, Jr., son ol
Mr.  and  Mrs.  S.  Cameron,  Derwent
Ave.,  which  took  place on  Saturday j
evening  last  at 0:30  nt  the  United ;
church manse, Rev. J. Hewitt Officiating,
The bride was radiant in a gown of
yellow silk. Miss Nellie Cameron, sister '
of the groom, was bridesmaid prettily
attired in red silk. Herbert Gibson,
brother of the bride .ably supported the
groom- A reception for immediate relatives ond friends was held at the
bride's home following thc ceremony.
The happy couple left later for a honeymoon which will be .spent at coast
cities and will take  up residence in   buns   their   mothers   had   provided. I brought  down  the
ists and a rejuvenator lor the people
oi the plains, would have bcen delayed
many years if It had not been for
Cumberland men who pioneered thc

Lheir object was of an entirely different nature they can hardly be blamed
If, in their eyes, its attractiveness lay
entirely in tlie minerals buried in Its
bosom,
However, since it has bcen the privilege of Courtenay citizens to draw the
veil of mystery from the forbidden
Plateau, let Cumberland do the same
for Comox Lake and Strathcona Park
.ind let us present a united front and
lever let up until the Cumberland-
Albeml road, the Strathcona road, and
:he Forbidden Plateau road are ac-
jompllshed facts.
I feel, however, that although the
ibovfl mentioned article was written,
io doubt, in perfect honesty and with
he best of intentions to correct cer-
ain "inaccuracies" which have been
.loticcd in the statement of Courtenay
boosters, the writer has not been entirely guiltless of that same crime himself.
To charge that Courtenayites say
i that they are closer to Strathcona
Park, one has only to look at the map i
j :o see that, as the crow flies. Cumber-
.and is ;i good ten minutes closer, bu! !
I am afraid that this distinct advantage would have to be entirely discounted if one intended to tiavel on
horse br.ck or with pack horses.
To th;} statement that thc Park is
two days' hard travel from Courtenay
by way of the new trail. I certainly
take exception, for even though the
boundary of the Park lies, not at the

the Athletic club team on Wednesday night at the Veterans' Hall.
These were the only games pla} ed
in tlie league, the other teams being

games at both halls, a social time
was enjoyed. The following is tl e
standing of the teams in the league,
up to date:—
Mrs. Shearer won thc ladies' travelling
prize and Mr. Monaco the gentlemen's.
Delicious and abundant refreshments
were served by a committee of ladies.
At the jolly dance which followed,
the younger set were very much in evidence, Jimmy Walker and his orchestra supplying all the latest dance
hits in excellent style. A rnfile for a

The Courtenay feather pushers
visited th ecourts of the Whippets

ihe majority of the ones lost were
very keenly contested and the evening thoroughly enjoyed by all the
players. In all twelve games were
played, the Whippets winning ten
and the Courtenayites two. The
point score was 242 for the home
players as against 149 scored by
the visitors. Following the inter-

River country, at (irand Prairie, ami
at Peace River Landing.
The latest flub to affiliate with
the Association of Canadian Clubs
was thc Canadian Club organized at
Annapolis-Royal, Nova Scotia, with
headquarters at Fori Anne. A
French speaking club formed at
Chicoutimi, in northern Quebec, will
shortly affiliate with thc movement.
Tho association, said Mr. Spry,
was rendering splendid service by
routing speakers through the various dubs.   It was a gigantic under*
taking as it had been decided to try
and give each club four speaker,
during the year and with 109 dubs
in existence it was easy to see what
n tremendous job it was. Speaker;
had to be obtained at a minimum of
cost ond a large number of them
were paid bare travelling expense
only, and this was financed largeij
by the larger dubs.

COMMUNITY PROGRESS
WHILE Cumberland has much to boast of as
ii considers past achievements, it would be
sheer folly at this stage of its community
development to resl content with past laurels am
cease striving for further advancement. At thi
last meeting of the City Council there was a de-
termination displayed by all the aldermen to gc
ahead with the proposed purchase of the assets
of the Cumberland Electric Lighting Companj
which shows thai our city fathers are not content with reviewing pasl achievements only.
Cumberland's present high standing among
centres of equal population has hem won by foresight aad aggressive policies in the pasl. This
generation should be jusl as eager to assure an
enviable future for the community as were those
men of former u nerations who often fought a
stiff, uphill fighl to gain those things upon whicli
the city's present  prestige rests.
li is within the living memory of many re..id-
ents hi re now when Dunsmuir Avenue was just
a trail and logging operations were quite bri..k
alone what is now termed the "main street." Today, our Avenue is one of the linesl of any small
town in British Columbia and other streets during
the pasl year or two have been greatly improved
and at ihe present lime, will compare very favorably with those in much larger communities.
Never before in its history has Cumberland
been in .such good position to go forward in rapid
and substantial development as right now. It has
all its pristine attractions plus many of relatively recent acquisition.
But to do the things that must be done if the
community is to prosper along desirable lines of
commercial, industrial and residential expansion
and betterment, there must be no diminution of
that spirit of co-operation and willing effort on
thc part of a considerable number of citizens
which has been manifested in all its past accomplishments.
And just as men and women of vision and civic
consciousness have always been available in the
past, so will they come to the service of the community in future hours of need.
PRIDE AND MARTYRDOM
CONSIDER the turkey fattening for the
Christmas dinner. How he swells and puffs
himself and struts in impressive dignity
icross the barnyard—inflated with pride in hi.s
breadth and depth of hest and large hip measurements. And the tl agedy of it is that those
things constitute his d3ath-warrant, The gifts
of which he is so proud doom him—to the oven.
Some may see in tin gobbler's vanity a strik-
ing illustration of the proverbial pride that is followed by a fall. Others, who look at the matter
fairly, will see something more. All who recall
the last good turkey dinner served them must admit thai a well-fattened gobbler has something
to be proud of. Nor is his fall, en route to the
table, to be set down as in any way a penalty of
pride. In his fall he serves mankind. In his
death he becomes a true benefactor of the hungry. His pride in life is not unbecoming and in
death he is a martyr lo a glorious cause.
"EARLY" .MEANS NOW
It Is never too early to .shop for Christmas. Some, whom
economic necessity dots not compel to postpone shopping
until Christmas savings funds are due and payable, begin
fhe nnnual accumulation of gifts a year ahead, but the
hosts now making their lirst rounds of the stores and shops
come under tlie classification of '"early shopper."
If cultivating generosity, taking pleasure in making others
happy and making Die Christinas shopping period easier
im' oneself and countless salespeople in commercializing
Christmas, then a sacred day is being desecrated. The
commercialization of Christmas is but a necessary means
to a desirable end.
Human beings find it highly human to spend eleven
months of the year gratifying selfish desires, even at the
expense of others, but they find it no less human to devote
the twelfth lo depriving themselves to make others happy.
The greatest happiness of the year is derived, not from
Christmas-gift receiving, but from Christmas giving.
Avoidance of eleventh-hour crowds is not the only bounty
paid the early shopper. A.s the objective is to buy the article that gives giver and recipient the maximum of satis-
laction and as Christmas slocks dwindle rapidly, ft is essential that Christmas shopping be completed at the earliest
date possible.
Scattering happiness far and wide is the purpose of the
custom of exchanging Christmas gifts, and it behoves each
one to derive the maximum amount of happiness from his
or her Christmas shopping. The one tried and true recipe
is "shop early." —The Review.
Municipal pride is at its best when a town first
begins to worry about its traffic problem.

THE W1NDOWLESS OFFICE
The need for and value of fresh
air are generally understood, but
provisions for fresh air are often
sadly neglected. In most places, the
law requires that every room in
(house shall have at least one window opening into the outer air. This
law is a recognition of the fact that,
if fresh air is to be had in n room,
there must be a window in order to
provide for an outlet of air and to
keep the air admitted cool a id in a
gentle motion.
In many offices where vovkerd
spend hours every day, a s ries of
partitions divides a room into a number of cubicles, which are, t< all intents and purposes, wir :low!ess
rooms. The sun never shires into
such partitioned-off spaces, ertiflcial
light must be used, and the* e is no
provision for the admission i f fresh
cool air in gentle motion.
Partitions in offices are evidently
generally erected without serious
thought as to ventilation; they do
not give the workers a fair chance
to keep physically fit; The lack of
fresh air is a serious matter. Anything which interferes with the circulation of fresh air in office;;
should never be allowed, because,
j in addition to jeopardizing the health
of the workers, it is not conducive
to good work. It is a common experience that when a room develops
a stuffy atmosphere, which means
that there is a lack of fresh air, the
inmates become drowsy; there is
less keenness for work. In a few
offices, where such matters as fresh
air do receive attention, there aro
regular periods when all window-;
nre opened nnd a few exercises gone
through in order to keep the workers "on their toes."
The importance of living, working
und playing in the fresh air cannot
be exaggerated. Fresh air is one
of the necessities of life. It cosljS
nothing, and yet it means so much
in the health of every individual.
There should never be any window-
less offices. Better health and better work will result from tlie provision of fresh air for all workers.
ions witnessed the accident a. it had
been their habit previously to go
out onto the road and warn any
cars approaching of the danger. As
it was growing dusk they did not
see Schneider when he set off the
shots nor immediately afterwards.
It was his custom to shout when all
the shots had gone off but on this
occasion there was no shout.
After waiting for a time and getting no answer to their calls, Hal-
derman proceeded to investigate and
found his companion face down near
a stump. On turning him over he
was horrified to find that the unfortunate man had received terrible
injuries to his face and head, death
it is presumed being instantaneous.
Dr. McKee made an investigation
and decided an inquest was not ne
cessary.
The Dixie-Land tea and sale of
novelties by the Talent Club of
Holy Trinity Anglican church in the
Parish hall on Wednesday afternoon was most successful. The girls
found ready buyers for all the goodij
displayed and a nice sum of money
realized which will go towards the
funds of the church.
One Nation,
Two Cultures
(Continued from page one)
j will hold the loyalty of both Eng-
i lish and French speaking Canadians,
j obliterate racial differences and  es-
i tablish  sincere friendship  and  faith
between   both.     French   Canadians
are ready as never before for friendly co-operation, he  said.    In  1917
there existed in Montreal an organization that was believed to be working  for the destruction  of  Confederation.   Since the Diamond Jubilee
it has been put out of existence by
general resentment.
Co-operation was essentially a j
Canadian characteristic, in fact it]
was Canada's national pastime to J
co-operate and yet maintain itidiv-
(duality in co-operation, and hc cited
the cases of some of the country's
leading businesses, and commissions,;
the federal constitution and the Can-|
adlan conception of imperial unity, j
One nation—two cultures was the J
only answer to the problem.
Let all accept thc principle of
Confederation, one loyalty, two
tongues, and Canada and the world
would be richer for it.
On motion of Dr. W. Bruce Gordon, a hearty vote of thanks was
tendered to lhe speaker for his very
able  address.

GREAT BRITAIN wants more Canadian foodstuffs.
The plain fact is that the increase in trade in some
of our food exports to the old country is not keeping
pace wiLh thc growth of demand.
Britain's markeis are wide open to Canada. Because
of the exhibitions of Canadian products, the activity of our
Trade Commissioners, and the effects of our advertising,
thc British consumer is more familiar with these products
than ever before, and consequently more inclined to buy.
Good will in Great Britain towards Canadian products
never has been at a higher point than now. All the facilities
of transportation fur nil classes of products from Canada to
Great Britain have been provided.
Shall we Canadians overlook or neglect the opportunities for Increased export trade which are thus laid
before us?
Just because domestic markets are good, shall we as
producers be so short sighted as to fail to satisfy so large a
market which is more favourably inclined towards our products ''ian ever before?
Not yet is there among our producers an adequate
realization of the opportunities for increased production
which present conditions in the British market! afford.
If you are a producer or dealer in foodstuffs, you can
assist to your own profit In gaining a larger shnre uf this
market. Almost every community in this country stands
to benefit.   The result can be attained by:
1. Producing more of the kind of products tho
British consumer wants.
2. Keeping up a constant supply.
3. Maintaining quality standards.
Through its Commercial Intelligence Service, this
Department will render valuable assistance to any exporter.
Our Trade Commissioners' Offices in Britain are especially
well-equipped and strategically placed to handle any export
problem on behalf of Canadian exporters. Enquiries regarding British Trade receive prompt attention. Write to
the Commercial Intelligence Service, Ottawa.
