Mr. and Mrs. Elmer'Campbell and  The'recent Provincial Elections have stirred up an interest 'children of Lyndon   were the .guests  'of- Mr. and  Airs, Coogau  for Christ-  in the municipal elections, apparently, for there' are numerous  and oninous rumblings that the seals in the various municipalities that, all elections will be contested when the proper time  comes next month.   Already there are a large number of candidates in the (ielcl for honors and as the time grows nearer it is  likely that the number of candidates will increase, and-by the  ''" t.ime'the"election day .comes round the aspirants will be as plenti-  ,  ful as-the ordinary voter wishes to have���������he can pick an choose.  With this municipal election the city of Vancouver will use  the Proportional Representation system for the first time. Mission lias used it now for'several years, and there are few people  can sec the significance of the change from the old system. Novv  that Vancouver will try it out, the ordinary voter there will have  to be educated along lines that are quite different from what he  ' has been used to.    In the provincial election the ballot was abo.ut  forty-two inches long containing some' twenty-eight names, but  it is not likely that if all the names are put on one ballot in the  municipal elections that the ballot will be considerably longer.  There is one thing absolutely certain in regardvto the elections  in Vancouver that not many of the residents' will know the .election results the same night as the day on which the..election, is  held.    The prospects are that there will be at least three candid-  ��������� ates at least in the field���������the present mayor, a former Councillor  ' and L. D. Taylor, and then perhaps* Joe Martin,, who is. always  -ready and willing to run, 4ust for the. excitement of the thing.  "With either three or four running for^that. office, there will be  '.'some "P. R. figuring" to do.    Then 'with a large proportion of  . candidates for councillors and. school trustees there will be great  big demand for large sheets of paper and heavy pencils with lots,  of wall space.'   There will be enough of this to dampen the ardor  of the biggest enthusiast for final returns.   '  V  Throughout some of the other coast cities there will also be  i large number of candidates, even the small city of North Vancouver has three aspirants for the chief magistrate-of the council  - New Westminster used to have P. R. too, and some of the  electors-had to take asleep before the results were made known.  'In the country districts around Vancouver and in the Fraser  Valley the ecitcment is running high even now, before the New  Year has come. Port Moody Liberals are frying to have a Liberal Mayor, the Liberals during the recent election showing  that they were more numerous than the Conservatives. Things  may change however. At Port Coquitlam Mayor Mars who is  running again may-have a lonesome fight and be elected by ac-  clainmation. In Maple Ridge the present reeve, Mr. Ansell, is  to have opposition in the person, of Councillor Fulton. This is  sure to be some good little fight for both are well known, good  talkers, besides being well versed in municipal matters. Reeve  Ansell has held the "job. down now for a number of years.

Arrangements were made to ��������� provide  hot coffee for the pupils who bring  their lunches to school after the  Christmas vacation.  The secretary was instructed to  invite Mrs. V; S.

As a consequence the game stood as  scheduled and Clayburn fielded a  team to play Mission' who were tin-',  able  to   place   a "team   there.

J. A. Catherwood, who has been elected to represent  Dewdney at Victoria, has held theoffice for a number/of years,  and of course will not be a candidate this time. Ex-Reeve J. B.  Cade and Councillor Knight, both old-time municipal politicians  are in the running and have been doing a lot of canvassing already. Councillor Knight believes his service as councillor for  a long period should be rewarded by his election as reeve. He  has always been an enthusiastic councillor and clone excellent  work on the board. He would, be a most conscientious reeve.  Mr. Cade knows municipal politics from A to Z and is a most vigorous campaigner; 'so it wi/l'be seen that the battle for supremacy in Mission will be a good one,-with no quarter given.  There may be a third candidate in the field in Mission, at  least there are several names already mentioned besides the  two above mentioned, but so far no public announcement has  been made for publication.

The year of 1921 may see a groat  many changes in the Fraser Valley  towards increased population, The  past fen years has seen many new  settlers making their living off the  land and there is still room for a  great  many   thousand   more.

The draining of the .Sumas Lake  and the reclaiming of the lands from  the effects of high water is bound fo  be a big boost for the Fraser Valley.  The news of this work will attract  many intending farmers to the Fraser Valley, all of whom will not be  able to secure land on this reclaimed  area, and seeing what can bo produced on tho other lands of the Fraser Valley, 'will in many cases undoubtedly decide to locate here where,  they can enjoy an excellent climate  as,well as having the privilege' of  tilling soil that is the most productive in  the  whole province.  been an independent on the public  political questions of the day and not,  truly partisan by any means in cither dominion or' provincial politics,  "his if carried into practice in lhe  new position will,undoubtedly be to  the advantage of (he public affairs  of the province during tho next'few  years.

Economy at McGill UuiTersitj.  on lhe table. They used Lo have a brand of soda biscuits in those days !fi  Tor-'n'o Loarding houses that I have not seen since. They were beftt^t  thar dug biscuits but with noi so much snap. My contemporaries win a!8  -ronvnnber thorn. 'A great many of the leading barristers and professSoc&g  men of Toronto were fed on them.  In the HTe we led we had practically no opportunities for association  on a larpo scale, no common rooms, no reading rooms, nothing. We neve*  saw tho" masa-duGs,���������personally 1 didn't oven know the names of them.  The only interchange of ideas we ever got was by going over to the Caetf  Howell Hotel on University Avenue and interchanging them;there.  I mention these melancholy details not for their own sake but merely',  io emphasize the point that when I speak of students' dormitories, and thi/  larger life which they offer, I .speak of what I know.  If we had had at Toronto, when I was a student, the kind <rf donnl������'  tories. and dormitory life that thoy have at Harvard, I don't think I wtmliS  ever have graduated.    I'd have iken there still.  Tho trouble is that tho Universities on our Continent are only Jn������4  waking up lo the idea of what a University should mean. They wer%'  very largely, instituted and organized w-th the idea that a un5|rer&ity was ������'  place where youug men were sent to absorb the contents of books and to'  lisWm'to lectures in lhe classroom.0-. Tho student wan pictured as a pa&M  creature, burning-what was called the "midnight oil," hi& wan face bent  ���������over his desk, ff you wanted to do something-for him you gave htm ������  book; if you wanted to do something really large on his behalf you ga.ro  hiro a whole basketful of them. If you wanted to go still further, nod b������ ������'  real benefactor to the College at large, you endowed a competitive ������cb������l������r������  ship and set two or move pallid studonta working themselves, to deatSs  to get if.        ' ''  That, as I see it. -was about the idea and-theory of the Canadian universities as they used to be. In the course of time and through th������ plaiffl  teaching of circumstances, we have been getting away from that idea. Wfl  are beginning to see' that the text book and-:the class room are but a par* .  of the student's life. If they are taken by themselves, In undihited doees,  they probably do more harm than good. They not only injure the student/-  health but they impair his mind. True education cannot be achieved aftar.  this fashion, by shovelling in information. The most that this can ere*,  give is erudition and pedantry, never capacity and genuine acquiremeait.'  The typical product of it is the college pedant possessed of a stomach-full  of fact hilt with a mind the size of a peanut and the outlook of a child. ._, ���������  The real process of education consists (as the derivation of the Tfore.  implies) in bringing out of the mind the inborn capacity that is in i*. I  think that Horace said something of this sort before. But there is n&>  harm in saying it over'again. '.  Since the melancholy days of which I speak, I have had the experieaeflF.  of nearly a quarter of a century of po:;t graduate work and of unrrersitf.  teaching. It is a noble profession, and, with the continued aid of thft-  Governors of McGill University, I hope to have another quarter of a ceisttsry;  af it at least before I hang up ray mortar board and sink into the arms of;  the trustees of-the, Carnegie Pension IV.nd. But as a college teacher Si  have long since realized that the most that the teacher, as 6Uch, can df*  for tho student-is a very limited matter. Tho real thing for the student!  is' the life and environment that surrounlls him. All that he really leanspj  he learns, in a sense, by the active operation of his own inteHect and noft,  its lhe passive recipient of lectures; And for thia active operation wha^  he needs most is the continued and intimate contact with hfe teUewg,;  Students must live together and eat together, talk and smoke together,'  .���������Experience shows that that is how thoir minds, really grow. And theyj  must live together in a rational and comfortable way. They must eat in ft  big dining room or hall., with oak beams across the ceiling, and the stained-,  pla.ss in the window's and with ashiold or tablet hero and there ttpon the wall,  to remind them hefv/otm times of the men who went before them and left a  name worthy of the memory of the college. If a student is to get from hia '  Col logo what it ought fo give him,' a college dormitory with the life 1b  common that it brings, is his absolute right. A university that falls to  give it fo him  is cheating him. (.  If I wcro founding a University,���������and I say it with all the seriousness  of which I am capable fjnst think of thai), I would found first a smoking  room; then when T had a little more money in hand I would found a dormitory; then after that, or more properly with that, a decent reading rooiSrf  and'a' library. After that, if f still had money over that I couldn't ub������, s  would hire a professor and  get some text books.  We are conducting a campaign,���������just now to raise, or lift five miilioa  dollars for McO-ill University. I have a notion that we are going to get lt������  And it is the duty of those of us who arc :n the University to show to w'  generous friends outside what it is that we mean fo do with It wh^a  we  have   it. y * ft-  To my in.'nd tho greatcr.l of all our needs is thft building of coltep*  dormitories to supply to our students n wider coller.s life than w������ c������ra'  Icivo them now.

GOODS  The manufacturers of Vancouver  have been invited to attend a big dinner to be given at the Hotel Vancouver in connection-with the Made-in-  British Columbia campaign whrich Is  to be initiated immediately after the  ;Ne\v  Year.

Why not include the 'farm and  dairy products of the Fraser Valley  in the campaign?  Premier Meighen in. a telegram to  Premier Oliver, denied statements  hat British Columbia has more than  its share of returned soldiors; as  more are reported to have been discharged here than tho number who  enlisted from this province.  Premier Meighen says that 1i ,43S  men enlisted here and only 35.832  were discharged hero, according to  official   records.  There is also less unemployment  In Vancouver now than during the  winter before the war, Premier  Meighen declared.  In reply to telegrams during the  last week . from-Premier Oliver asking details of the Dominion's appropriation to relieve distress here, and  urging the Dominion to do something  to help the returned- soldiers, in need  due to the surplus number discharged; here, Premier;'Meighen telegraphed as follows:   ���������-. .   '  "Referring to'' your telegram    of  December 20, judt. received on my  'eturn, the Dominion, government has  assumed full responsibility - for the  compensation .of disabled men to the  extent of the disability caused by the  war.        ��������� ';.-..'  '.'The unemployment question- is  another matter, and though nominally.such local conditions are a subject  for local attention, the federal government _has this year undertaken  that for such relief as may be absolutely unavoidable after municipal,  provincial and federal governments  and employers generally have provided all employment possible, to  contribute one-third of the actual  money dispersed in relief from administration, provided the municipality or provinces or both contribute  the other two thirds, with the municipality establishing the organization.  "The above is subject to reasonable' safeguards as outlined in the  letter of- the minister of labor. of  Canada to the minister of labor for  Ontario, dated December 14 and published in the press on December 17.  The Ontario government has since acquiesced in this plan.  "Our Figures here show 51,318 enlisted in British Columbia and only  35;832 were discharged there. They  also show less unemployment now  in Vancouver than in the winter  before the war.  "Our policy for British Columbia  is outlined above, and is the same as  for the other provinces.

Far-  rell, a British merchant, in an interview here yesterday said:  "The comlngyear will see the biggest How of {migration into this  country that has ever been seen." He  said that in England the Salvation  Army has applications from thirty  thousand people who wished to come  to Canada.  Besides there were 10,000 ex-soldiers who were anxious to come to  Canada and who would be brought  to Canada and who would be brought  out, Mr. Farrell said under the Imperial Government land settlement  scheme.

Quiet meetings of prominent  Liberals emboldened  by" tho success  of the Liberal candidate in the recent Provincial election in the city are  said to    be    taking    place and    thai-  repeated   in   municipal   politics.  The  voter outside the clique appears to be  hopes are high that success might be  indifferent but the apathy may be stirred to the activity zone if a political  fight comes   on.   The fact    that the  present regime has conducted the aff  airs  of the; corporation without indemnity or personal expenses in nego  tiations   and  administration   weighs  a lot with the ordinary ratepayer especially  as  no  criticism  of  the  executive is forthcoming.
