Addresses By Dairymen At
Large Meeting In Telkwa
Experts Give Advice on Subjects of Importance Concern
ing Embryonic Dairy Industry of North~Our
Development Cause of Gratification
Special to The Herald
Accompanied by Hon. E. D.
Barrow, minister of agriculture,
and Col. R. D. Davies, head of
the  Land Settlement Board, the
twenty-five members of the B.C.
Dairymen's Association reached
Telkwa on Friday, and toured
that district thoroughly, being
heartily welcomed and enjoyably
entertained bv the people there.
In the evening a well attended
meeting was held in the hall, and
was presided over by F. M. Dock-
riy, who welcomed the visitors
and referred to the importance
of the visit of such a representative gathering.
Prof. W. T. McDonald, provincial livestock commissioner, spoke
first, saving that the one thing
which struck him particularly was
the remarkable development of
this district since his last visit.
Referring to the dairy business
in particular, the speaker thought
the farmers of Central B.C. were
right in going in for more dairy
stock. He emphasized the need
of having the right kind of cattle
to begin with. It was best to
start with a few animals, preferably good grade stock, and work
up gradually into the pure-bred
business, although a purebred sire
at the start was essential. It
was rather difficult to say which
breed best "suited the Bulkley
Valley. Mr. McDonald favored
the Ayrshire, which, though a
smaller cow than the Holstein, is
said to be hardier. The Guernsey
was a good cow, and the Jersey
one which produced higher in
butterfat. The speaker advocated that only one breed be used in
the Valley, in that the knowledge
that a certain breed was specialized in would induce prospective
buyers to turn their attention to
that locality, and instanced the
Island of Jersey. He laid stress
on the particular care which must
be given dairy cows, which are
not normal animals, and, exhorted his hearers to guard against
contagious abortion, of which the
Valley as yet was free.
H. R. Hare, of the department
of animal husbandry, University
of B.C., advised that any change
from beef to dairying be gradual,
as some beef raisers are not acquainted with the differences between the two branches, and any
sudden rush might end in failure.
Mr. Hare endorsed strongly
what Prof. McDonald said about
a pure-bred sire. One interesting point brought forward by the
speaker was that some men specialize too much, and in the dairying business the most successful
in sidelines, such as" hogs, sheep,
bees, hay, beef, etc. Any men
going in for dairying must be
prepared to get up, follow the
same routine, regularly, not six
days of the week, but seven. The
feeding of cows should be studied
as variety was essential. Production was the first thing which
suffered when proper feeding was
Prof. Wilfred Sadler, associate
professor of dairying, University
of B.C., prefaced his remarks by
a tribute to Mr. Barrow as a real
minister of agriculture, dealt with
his subject, the bacterial contents
of milk and cream and their relation to successful dairying, as
something a little ahead of time
in this district, where practical
assistance rather than scientific
advice is required as yet. He
was greatly impressed with the
possibilities of the north,
Col. R. D. Davies outlined the
work of the Land Settlement
Board in Central B. C. under the
settlement area pfan7' and stated
that the plan had been very successful. Nine areas had been
established between Smithers, on
the G.T.P., and 150-Mile House,
in the Cariboo, amd four more
would be opened this year. He
asserted that three times more
land was now under improvement
in the Telkwa and Vanderhoof
districts as when the settlement
areas were established two years
ago. Fifty returned soldiers had
benefitted by the rebate of $500
allowed those who enlisted in B.
C, and the Board had now a
loaning business of over $1,600,-
000 and had shipped nearly 1200
head of stock into Central B.C.
Hon. Mr. Barrow, in his address, stated that, in his opinion,
the Central Interior offered more
opportunies than any other part
of the province.
He spoke of government-assisted dairies in these parts, and,
whi 1 e making no predictions,
stated that when feed production
and dairy herds increased sufficiently, the matter of a creamery
in the Bulkley Valley would be
attended to by the government.
The minister referred to the government's success in its land
settlement policy, and noted the
marked improvement in this part
of the province in the last year.
J. W. Berry, president of the
Fraser Valley Milk Producers'
Association, spoke on the value
of co-operation, which, he said,
did not mean to keep up prices,
or put those concerned in a position of getting something not due
them, but was simply to have a
New Settlement
Areas Open Up
Much Idle Land
Approximately 70,000 Acres
to be Resold to Settlers
by Government
Special to the Herald
In continuation of the policy
adopted by the government by
which owners of land close in to
centers of population are required
to improve their holdings or sell
them to bona fide settlers who
will do so. Minister of Agriculture
Barrow announces the establishment of several additional settlement areas throughout Central
British Columbia, one of which is
located in the Bulklev Valley and
comprises various tracts of unoccupied land in the vicinity of
Doughty, Telkwa, Deep Creek,
Houston, Forestdale and Palling.
This area has been advertised in
the Herald and it is expected
that several of these parcels of
land will listed with the Land
Settlement Board for sale.
Practically all lands acquired
in Area No. 1, the first settlement
area established by the Board,, in
1919, in the vicinity of Telkwa,
have been sold, while a few quar-
-ter-seetieRS -only inheres No. 6,
near Smithers, vet remain unsold.
Other new areas to be established during the present year
are in the Nechaco Valley, in the
vicinity of Engen, Sinkut and
Tachick Lakes; and in the Cariboo district, on both sides of the
Fraser River, in yarious tracts
between Prince George and 150-
Mile House.
The Land Settlement Board
office was recently reopened at
Telkwa, to deal with applications
for land in the Bulkley Valley
and in the Francois Lake district,
while similar offices exist at Vanderhoof and Prince George for
the Nechaco and Cariboo districts
Approximately 70.000 acres are
to be included in the new settlement areas.
were those with 40 or 50 per cent say in regard to value and prices
put upon their product. All sectional feeling'must be eliminated
and the lesson learned to "give
and take". Obtaining right men
for the right places of responsibility was one of the hardest
things, said Mr. Berry.
After a few words from D. D.
Munro, district representative of
the Land Settlement Board, with
reference to silo material for the
district, and the question of forming a cattle club to bring in additional dairy stock to the Valley,
which resulted in the decision to
postpone any action in this regard until a more favorable opportunity of purchasing presents
itself, and a closer survey of the
young stock is made, the meeting concluded.

A Remarkable
Campaign For
Hospital Day
If a suggestion had been made that
the attention of the people of North
America could be focussed on some
phaae of welfare service or other activity in less than two months, and a recognized "Day" established, such a
suggestion would have been treated
with ridicule or worse.
Yet, in the latter part of March last,
the idea of a National Hospital Day was
suggested by a \ magazine known as I
"Hospital Management", for the purpose of -having each community become
better acquainted with its hospitals, and
on May 12th, less than two months
later, the first National Hospital Day I
was enthusiastically observed in the
great majority of hospitals throughout
Canada and the United States. Reports
came in from every direction describing
the successful carrying-out of the idea
in each locality. Some hospitals celebrated one day only; others had special
features and events extending I over
varying periods up to a week orjten days.
In larger, centers where there were
several hospitals, one of the most valuable features accruing from the "Day"
was a greater spirit of co-operation between the different institutions of the
town or city. Union organization iaieet- |
ings were often held, to arrange the
preliminaries of the campaign. These
frequently resulted in a better acquaintanceship between the hospital officials
and in a closer spirit of co-operation.
Mayors of cities, governors of states,
lieutenant-governors of provinces, municipal officers of all kinds, as well as
ministers of churches, seem, without
exception, to have entered into vtijie
spirit of the occasion and used their
positions and influence to make the
event successful.
Moving picture theaters advertised
the "Day" on their screens, merchants
made hospital displays in their windows
and emphasized the occasion in their
advertisements. Florists featured the
occasion by suggesting the appropriateness of remembering the hospitals with
bouquets and other little gifts.
Receptions were held at the hospitals,
with which were associated demonstrations of such nature as would most interest the public. Special persons were
appointed to escort visitors through the
wards and different departments, explaining and describing wherever oppor-
tunfty presented, the nature and scope
of the hospitals' efforts for service to
the people in every way possible.
Outside the hospitals parties, dances
and benefits of varying character, were
given, all with the one object of aiding
the hospitals and bringing them and
the people into closer and more sympathetic relationship. Very many churches
devoted all or some of their services on
a Sunday near to the "Day" to themes
oearing upon hospital service, and de-
• voted the proceeds of collections taken
to the benefit of local institutions.
In short, all sections of the community and organizations of every character apparently vied with each other to
show sympathy and active interest in
their own institutions.
Greater by far than any other single
force that entered into the success of
this wonderful and spontaneous movement was the press of our sister nations.
All papers gave liberally of their space,
day after day, week following week, to
keep the subject before the people.
The letters of 4fee-president of the Un
ited States, as well as those of other
dignitaries prominent in both countries,
endorsing the movement, were given
conspicuous place in the papers and in
journals of all descriptions. No better
example could be imagined of the' 'power of the press" than the remarkable
success of the first "National Hospital
Day". Everywhere, in reporting the
results and successes, the hospitals have
attributed a large portion of them to
the sympathetic and generous support
of the newspapers, and have endeavored by public acknowledgment to convey
their gratitude to these benefactors.
"Hospital Day," May 12, is an established fact. It has come to stay. From
the phenomenal response accorded on so
short notice that has been experienced
this year, it is a safe prediction that
next and each succeeding year the
"Day" will come to be one of the most
important factors in the hospitol welfare of our country.

We regret to state that Rose

Annie West, aged 35, the beloved
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harrison West, passed away on Monday morning, May 30th. On
Wednesday* June 1, she was interred in the cemetery on her
father's land. A large number
of relatives and friends followed
the remains to their last resting
place. The pallbearers were H.
Hossack, Mr. Ferguson, H. Baron, Gust. Bjorkborn. Deceased
had been an invalid most of her
life, but bore her affliction with
the utmost fortitude and cheerfulness, and that lone little grave

here that were are not going on
for ever, even at Rose Lake, and
is a reminder that one of our district, not so fortunate to be able
to get about as we do, has been
called by Him to pioneer us into
the Great Unknown.
