He  lived, for a while in Toronto and  Vancouver, and;' finally settled in  'Abbolsl'ovd where he has made his  home for the past thirty years.  Mr. Milstead-.was an active and  devoted member of St. Mathews  Anglican Church. ��������� Ho is survived by  a wife and six Ismail children residing here.

The palbearors,  all intimate friends of the late Mr.  Milstead were, ,E. A. Barrett, N. Hill,  j. Chamberlain, W. Bpusfield, C  Clauson and D. McKenzie.  The death 'of Mr. Milstead. Jr. is  especially sad, as two days after he  had passed away, his father, Mr.  James Marshall Milstead who had  been ailing for some time, died at.  his home, 30' Lakewood Drive, Vancouver.  The hurried trip to the bedside of  his'son the previous Thursday and  the shock of his death, undoubtedly  hastened his own end. Mr.. Milstead  Sr. was born ^76 years ago at St.  'Lednards'-dri'-^ea,' England' and. came  to Canada as a young man. Having  lived in Abbotsford for thirty years  he was looked upon as one of the  pioneer settlers and had seen the  town grow from a few scattered  houses to its present thriving state.  The fungal of both father and  son was held Tuesday afternoon  from the residence in Vancouver to  Mountain View Cemetery, there being present only the relatives and a  few old friends of the deceased. The  service: both at the house and  graveside was conducted by Rev. A.  H. Priest.  Mr. Milstead, Sr. is survived by  his widow, Hannah Milstead, . and  three sons, Alfred and Charles 01  Vancouver, and-one son of Zephyr,  Ontario.  LANGLEY  AND  CLAYTJUUN  TO J1EET IN FINAL GAME  .

'    ' ���������"' ' Backboard Shot  There is" another type of shot tlSnj  Is" very much in vogue.   among    experienced  basketballers' .though. . its  effectiveness depends to/a  large extent upon the ability of -the team to  work  the 'ball  under the  basket.     I  refer to the glancing    shot    off the  baskboard which is a sure point-getter if the forward has mastered  the  technique  of  giving  the ball  sufficient  "English." /  '���������������������������The  sho$ is made by-^giving    the  ball -a slight turn of the wrist as ��������� it  leaves  the hand,  thus causing it to  rotate  against the    backboard r and  rebound- into  the   hoop.!;, The     distance   between  the  player  and     the  basket should-be decreased wherever  possible by'a dribble as this shot is  esentially an urider-the-basket shot.  :  It is a shot that permits of- many  variations.     It   can   be  made  either  \vith one hand alone' or     with -both  hands. ' I have seen  many  forwards  who  shoot  baskets   with  one    hand  while standing off  the ' guard with  the other.' "It can also be effectively  used by    bringing    the'   ball    right  over  the right shoulder    with  both  hands arid playing    a    direct-' bank  without' English.  '     ���������'������������������������������������   For Short Shots  "Short shots made directly in front  ���������r from the left side    of the basket  .re made by jumping with arms ex-  ended,  the  ball  being lifted  to  tlie  'inger tips and just over the rim of  ���������he basket. ���������  The start of the throw  3  naturally  made  with    two  hands  mt- the left hand is    usually    with-  Irawn  before the  completion of the  throw.  "^W-hen coming in under the basket  ?rom the'left the player may receive  Y pass too close under, the basket  U' such times an additional step  vitli a' :sharp half turn to the left  '���������vill bring him into a position far.inp  ������������������he' basket-' on the other side, thu-  giving him an opening for a-backboard shot. The ball is then sho<  upward-from the waist with a sharp  wrist and-forearm movement. t-A-  ^���������.imiliar shot is used when coniin;'  in from the right.  It is well to remember in this' connection that all backboards are. not  constructed of the same material  md that the rebound of the ball will  vary with the hardness of the material used. Some are of soft wood  others are hard, and still others arc  if plate glass. A few test shots wiih  Mie ordinary amount of spin will  soon acquaint you with the amount  of rebound to be expected from a  -dranere backboard. A slight twist  of the ball will not affect its course  if It was evenly exerted but a ball  sent spinning through the air is  very apt to rebound s'harply at different angles when striking tho  backboard.  Long Shots Bail  Long shots have won many games  btit they should not be resorted to  unless a team is unable to penetrate  the opposing defence' or unless the  end of playing time Is very near.  They are usually forced shots, especially when made by younger  players who have not the strength  to throw a great distance. The bad  habits which are likely to develop  from long shooting are banging the  backboard and an uneven exertion of  strength in'the arms'when! throw.ivvg  tlie bail. , Players should.'.'at all times  guard against tlie over-use ;-'o,f the  right or left.arm,"as 'there must ,.be  an even push, exerted'if' the flight of.  the ball is to be" straight arid truel  Following up ��������� shots is'an important offense act as well. as; a-defensive one. One should so' time "and  direct one's action during the flight  of the" ball as to be an advantageous  position to secure the rebound or' to  guard an;-opponent who :has secured the ball. Short steps and,,an attitude of alertness will help'to'make,  this action possible.  Too quick a start'will bring ...the  player under the basket before the  ball has 'descended. ' The rebound'  must be jumped for' and'tlie ball  secured' at the height of ;th'e :jump  and then tapped; pushed or shot before the floor is" touched.'One's position in securing the ball will deter-'  mine which course must' be adopted.  mash. The results however, 'were'  very unpromising, and: it Svo.uld appear that, unless some change was  made .in feeding tho yeast, it was  not of much value as food for. laying hens.

With c  view of testing out this theory,' ' a  number of experiments in .which,  yeast  was fed  were carried  out.   ;  In the first experiment,"'the -yeast  was- dissolved in warm water, added  to the mash and allowed to stand tor .  24 hours in order to'allow the'full  effect of the yeast tp become absorbed by the mash. ..For a while"' the  hens ate this mixture fairly freely,  and a slight increase in egg.production was noticed But apparently  the birds soon tired of it, alid ���������gradually refused to eat/ Later this wa^s  followed by a decrease in egg pro  luction and the morality ..in, . the  iens was noticeable higher thari.in  he ones not receiving .the. yeaat.  'lowever it is .thought that the increased morality was. due-primarily  "o changes occurring in .the mash  .vhile it was held for 24 hours', previous to feeding rather to the yea.3i  '.tself.  The moist mixture was ' eventual  ly discontinued and, the pens put o:i  a dry mash ration which contained  one per cent, of fresh yeast. The condition of th������ flocks improved materially with this change and the birdi  soon resumed their normal appearance, with fair egg production. However, the production was no higher  than in the check pens which were  not receiving yeast.  After continuing this for two  months the amount oT yeast given  was increased to threo per cent. This  was' ground up, air and sun dried  and added to the dry mash, in which  condition it will keep for several  weeks   without   deterioration.  The fresh yeast, when dried, only  gives about one-third of its fresh  weight so that in feeding , three  pounds of afresh product only about  1 1-4 pounds of ,; dry pulverized  yeast were added to the mash. No  increased production due to the high  er yeast content of the mash was  secured. ,  The work of feeding yeast wa3  not conducted on a very extensive  scale and the tests were not of sufficient duration to thoroughly determine the value of adding It to  t'i->  put'in -lati'.r he is up half the night  doing this  work. ���������':���������:.'������������������������������������"  This 'plan also works, out well In  ,'the: turning of the'eggs, as' about':7  a.m. and again twelve- hours'late-*  are round, to" be, the favorite times  for this latter-operation.
