Long  established  businesses  like  long  established governments    are    usually  boiled  down  until    nothing but essentials are left.    The course which  it  must  follow   is mapped  out on  a  sort of survival of the    fittest    principle until it is impossible    to    lean  much either one    way or the other.  Although the management and own-  eiship may change, the interests of  the community     wluich    the    paper I  serves remains the same, and one of  the main excuses which a paper has  for its existence is the advancing and  furthering the    interests of the district which-it covers.    Those interests may vary, but      they    do      not  change, and the policy    of   a    local  publication   must       follow   identical  lines no matter who    occupies ' the  editoria chair. ,.  The new manager, although perhaps fairly, well versed on things  general in British Columbia, has yet  to get in touch " with the past,  present and future of the good people  of Abbotsford and district. He has to  learn tlie interests, problems and destinies of the various communities  whicli he is to serve; and, if he blunders or ens at times, it must be understood that it is not intentional but  solely through    lack of    knowledge      Ontario    has    twenty-four    cities,,  touching questions  which  may  arise   four of which have a population*  of  The following is the secretary's  report on' the provincial exhibition  at'New Westminster each year.',     .,.

The policy of the Post will be  .independent politically, religiously,  and socially. An experience ol" twelve  years in the local newspaper business  in Ashcroft has led us to believe  the above to be the best and only  policy where only one paper is published in the town or district. In  politics we are merely following the  precedent of many others in the province, for the day of the political  paper has gone, and the newspaper  is regarded today more as a business  proposition than a prop for this or  that politician or party. Under the  new management the Record will be  first, last and always for the people  in general and for the interests of  the district in which it circulates.  ....��������� Mr. J. A.

'' ������  PRINTING A KISS  A human kiss is defined as an instinctive gesture. Printing is a  gesture" which may be well defined  as betwjeen tope and paper, leaving  Its Impr-int���������the ink.  As the human kiss registers the  soul of man, so, the kiss of printing  registers'.-.the soul of the art. We  have been neglectful in not rendering to Printing its highest consideration. We have been inclined to emphasize its mechanical features, underscore its volume of output, and  underline it-s classification as a comparative industry.  A human kiss with its various sha-  dngs from that of the callow youth  to the finished osculation of the  past master, Intersposed with, the  slobbering of that of the uncouth,  the performance of the amateur, has  the various counterparts in printing.  The human kiss has but vaporings  ���������Invisible, volatile; transporting  the recipients to a state of ecstacy,  frenzy; perhaps only momentarily,  leaving memories only, to be recalled ln proportion to the   recipient's  passion.- Even * among those most  highly, endowed to memory,, the exactness or the reaction of the gesture can never be accurately recalled,  and,, so,, the' irrepressible desire to  "go.to press" again and print another-edition, or many more.  Thus, nature, in her wisdom provides an attraction,-a power, a force;  is.ever,and always at work: it'totally renewing itself���������of the species���������  generation after generation.  r:f c d;ga'dt  No apology is made for animating  Printing through the analogy of. a  human Kiss.  if,an art, a trade, a vocation has  no soul, it'is then a monotonous  habit, a slavedom���������to be bdrne to  the end by only faith and hope.  But, Printing���������a "living, vital  force���������is-���������ever functioning with its  mechanical, material and chemical  allies���������ever guided by its soulful  tune.

"Empress  of Australia" during tha Japanese  disaster and Is now commanding tha  Canadian Pacific S.S. "Empreos of  Canada" for that vowel's forthcoming world  cruise.  The beauties of tha Lauirentian  Mountains, which have alroady attracted the attention of moving picture producers, are continuing to  draw such companies. The latest to  make use of this location is the Distinctive Pictures Corporation, starring Alma Rubens and Conrad Nagle,  which has been shooting at Gray  Rocks Inn, Ste. Jovite, over the New  Year holiday period. A feature of  their Hvork has been the co-operation  of the Chateau FronUnac dog team,  led  by Mountie, a  veteran  of five  Although the,Post passes into the  hands of a new ownership, the policy  of fairness will no doubt mark all  its comments on the publje life of  our little town.. ��������� At no time in the  past���������since the paper was established in May 1910 has the columns of  this paper been used to send a slani  home to any of our citizens. Letters  which we thought reflected -on citizens have In the past been refused  publication and the same policy will  I feel be pursued by the new man-'  agement. We want a policy of fairness to all if'our town is to. prosper  aud go ahead. There have been times  when a virile pen could have . been  usedr. but the Post policy considered  this unfiair, or as one man would  say, hitting below the belt. Even  in brute strength this' hitting below'  the belt is considered unfair. Wo  may- differ and differ very much,  but if our little town is to come into  its own we must live and let. live, and  work  together.  The Post has /endeavored at all  times to hit fair; even in matters of  incorporation, although some people-  did not give'the Post credit for what  it has done. Our position was* that  no information in* connection .with  incorporation matters should go unchallenged if it did not have at leas\  50 or* 75 per cent, truth to it. Some  facts were-distributed .that did not  have one grain of truth to them. As  a true British Columbian can we be  blamed for letting this .'go without  criticism? Many of our friends said,  'No, and we will back you lip.*'. We  did and todaiy there is hot much  chance that Abbotsford will be incorporated, until all parties, particularly the property-holders, get together arid discuss the matter*in any  other way than except in the spirit  of get-to-gether���������"all for one and one  for all interest.' . Are we not right?  So it is. that.the Post took^excep-  tion to some of the criticisms, recent:-  ly;~appearing in.the;columns of its  contemporary regardingr ,the *work  accomplished by last year's .board of  trade. We believe that/last.year  much more, was really" accothplished  than most people are aware of.- Let  us be fair at. all times and give credit where credit is due even if. our  personal opinions and our political  opinions are not in accordance with  the leading spirits of that organization���������but we should be one at all  tinies for that which benefits the  town and facilitates business. Should  we not?  Well then, last year's board of  trade is certainly responsible for  some tangible results. For the first  time in the history of Abbotsford our  streets were oiled. The Post remembers when a former proprietor  of our pioneer hardware store, at his  own expense, oiled a little right in  front of his store as an experiment.  The oil settled the dust and that was  what we all wanted. Why should any  citizen kick at that?  And last week the former owner  of the News took advantage of the  established small debts court  given to Abbotsford in 1923, under  the guidance of a stipendary magistrate���������a court that has been desired  by  many..  Recently the provincial government called for tenders for the new  jail, and a building will be built  that will not reflect discredit on  Abbotsford. ���������     '���������  'i.\  Other matters, such as the endeavor to secure pickers for local growers, have been' accomplished by last  year's board of trade. So why should  we kick and    intimate that "lack of  support", nullified  the  board's' activities"?    We have to take bur hat off.  to go-getters    and wish   that every  member, and business man and resident would  display    public-spi'rited-  ness.    No reflection on tlie board of  trade members either    this    year or  last year, or any year, should be permitted    to    go   unchallenged.    The  board of trade In the past has devoted its'energies In securing    for    the  town most of those privileges which  mark it as a progressive community.  .     J. A. BATES.  Here and There  .

Then don't pick out one of the  smoothest boulevards in the city and  motor around for several hours.  For, according to V. A. Cole, sales  manager for Zbinden-Wood Motor  Company, the most restful ride is  obtained from the gravel or .dirt  roads where there is a slight movement of the car on its springs.  "It's just like sitting in a chair,"  said Cole. "Who ever heard of a  person becoming thoroughly rested  by sitting in a straight backed chair.  Give the same person a rocking  chair which bumps over the cracks  in the floor and causes the muscles  to move during the motion in order  to retain the balance, and he will bo  satisfied to remain there.  "It is necessary to make the muscles in. the body move just slightly  before perfect rest can he obtained.  Some of the macadam highways do  not cause a car to jostle on Its  springs or miles. Then the position  of riding becomes strained and there  is not the rest in the trip that the less  even road gives."  This is Cole's version of the "best  ride" problem.  Try it out for yourself.  a  I  If  I  n  m  H  I  if
