HOLDS SMOKER  An echo of the spirit of the disarm-  anient conference was heard at Abbotsford on Thursday evening, when  th'e^Eversbn Post of the American  legion '' were- the guest's of the. Abbotsford G. W. V. -A. at a .smoking  concert.     Comrades  from  Clayburn,  VOTED CONFIDENCE  ' -     _.; ' tA m SCHOOL TRUSTEES  1    AB13OTSF0RD,     Jan.'   11.���������There  was ,a. large attendance;;at. the'.school  'meetf/ig;' held 'In" the"'" Abbotsford'  School onvFrlday ievening.^ A-good'  many from the Matsqui and   Sumas  municipalities recently included,   in  the* enlarged ', school   district   wero  present.'   IVtr.;- E.'^Webster, chairman  of. the school board,    presided.'   The  secretary, Mr. J. J.' McPhee, explained what had been done to enlarge-the  school area and stated that   Messrs.  Brice of1 the Matsqui ���������,school board,  E.   B;    McRhail.   of: Sumas   school  board and himself had   gone to Victoria to,;present"the-case'to the education department, and they, approving of .the proposition',' had made    It  lav/ somewhat cooner than    I hey expected.    They also    authorized;'the  present triwteen to retain-their positions until'the'July meetihgin 1922.  Some spirited exception was taken to  the mode of   procedure   which-'   had  Been" adopted, which was characterized as'"railroading" it-through without proper consideration and without  giving the electors the privileges   of  expressing themselves by ballot. Mr.  Q. F. Pratt, ex-chairman.of the Matsqui school-'board, asked'the meeting  to seriouslyrconsider the situation before offering    criticism.'   He said if  this scheme had not been'favored,-a  four-room school at a cost of $5000  would' haverbeeh,.a   necessity near  A. T. Mi & D.-Co.'s.mill,    and a one-  room school at a cost of $2000 would  have been   necessary in "the   Sumas  district.   The "taxes-would jhave been  paid by the   people of   the two districts *a������f ected'tanfcthere. would cbe-ho  financial loss.   , In" the    near   future  third year high'school work would be  provided which .would be a great saving of expense to those who required  the'full   <high. -school    course.    Mr.  Pratt move'd a vote of confidence in  the trustees .and    expressed satisfaction ��������� that -'the    government had appointed, them as acting trustees until July of this .-.year.

The Commander in thanking the  Abbotsford G. W. V.

This was the  decision reached by the 'shareholders of the Huntingdon concern on  Monday night.

The American*concern, in addition  to the Bellingham and Lynden centres, havea switchboard at Sumas to J  which thei;Huntihgdon farmers are  connected. ������-U/nder the new arrangement the managers will keep up repairs, make extensions and accommodate new subscribers.

The shareholders are all confident  that this is the most satisfactory  way out of their difficulties, priiici-  tory pally because it gives excellent  security on both sides and provides  for efficient-service. The American  i"troubleman" will be available on  this side of the"'"'line for economic  repairing ahd adjusting. The new  arrangement will come into operation at once. .

In  view, ol" the recent.-extremely" 'cold  weather, this is "somewhat rcmaiK-  able and is attributed to the- fact  that the facilities for storing have  been much improved ^ during recent years. The root houses of tlie  large growers are ar permanent affair and somewhat compared 'to the old-time pits. They are  built to withstand tho severest cold  weather, the wall in some cases be  ing .two .feet .thick and constructed  so as' to leave a space in the cent-.;e,  which is,.afterwards filled with sawdust or'some other materia'. This  ensures a. first-class frost-proof root  house. "In the case-'o'f the smaller  growers;* they", also profiting'by the  experience''of former"'y'elirs, took  more pains in the construction of  their pits. ,  Floods have resulted in the largest  loss of potatoes this year. One grower residing on Barnstoh Island, who  in other years marketed'700 tons of  potatoes, this year only saved enough  for his own use. -A large number of  others, in different localities, have  also been heavy losers.  A large number of potatoes arc  also being lost" through the ravages  of a disease known as tlie "Rnglish  blight." This is a eomprira'th'ely  'new disease in this pari of tlie province.- A small portion of rot appears  on one end of the spud. This spreads  quickly, and soon the ��������� whole, potato  as well as all others coming hi contact with it, are unfit for use. If, on  first noticing ' the rot, the diseased  part is cut off, the rest of the potato  can be used for consumption.  ���������     '   .  Regarding tho checking of the disease, it has been stated that the best  plan is-to inspect the potatoes regularly and throw out any that are "rotten. ���������    -       '    ���������  LOCAL CHICKEN FANCIER  IS ELECTED PRESIDENT  (From   Fraser   Valley   Record)  . ..At the annual meeting of the-B.

Ballott  .forms have been printed to test the  feeling of the electorate in this instance.  (From   Fraser  Valley   Record)  The annual report for 1921 of the  Mission Agricultural "Association was  the best presented for many years.  The entries haw, doubled in four  years and one of the most interesting features.of the Fair was the excellent District Exhibits shown by  Dewdney,, Nicomen, Hatzic, Mission  and   Silverdale.  The following expenditures have  been made on .improvements, $345.-  00, on the grounds, $1150, on au addition to the' main Hall and over  $200 on stock, pens. $774.00 was  paid out. in cash prizes. This is a record being $250 more than the  amount paid in cash prizes in any  previous year,    '"*  A mortgage of $440 was paid off  and $lt"i00 borrowed and interest  paid up to the end of the year. The  rent still due from the school board  will meet two unpaid bills so that  the year's receipts will meet all ex7  penditures leaving only the unpaid  loan of $1500: Certain improvements are urgently needed, as levelling and'seedirig of grounds. Clearing and levelling of a place for showing stock and additions and improvb  ments to the poultry house and stock  sheds.  The president iiMiis address urged  these and ' other improvements but  what is needed is the hearty co-operation of all interested in making 19-  22 show the best yet.

Games Played  (pjooen   ^3lP*A   jasiu^   niojjj)  The past week saw basket ball  holding,the lime light in. sporting  circles, while foot ball was laid on  the shelf on account of weather conditions.  Taking the games In order the  Senior "A" and "B" boys journed to'  Chilliwack on Thursday last over the  frozen Vedder Mountain .road but  failed to turn in a win. The Senior  -'B" game was rather tame and resulted in an easy win for , the home  team.  The Senior "A's" put up a better  game and it was only in the last seconds of play that the result was decided. Mission was' slow in getting  started and Chilliwack soon had a  comfortable lead which they held  throughout the first half. The second period saw Mission come to life  and'it was only the hands of , fate  which kept Chilly a lead of two  points at the finish.  The other games' of the week were  between the Milner boys and the two  teams which resulted in an even  break; the Senior "A's" loosing by  the.score of 25 to 23 while the "B's"  .doubled the Milner's score of, 7.  The boys are capable of playing a  ^better game than they did and if they  Have Sold Property  ToTheB.C.E.R.  (From   F-raser  Valley   Record)  The purchase of the Anderson, McDonald, Campion properties on tho  west side of the Stave River at it is  reported a very handsome figure has  somewhat- relieved the situation so  far a3 a road on the west side of ,tlie  Stave River is concerned, for the  present at least. Mr. Macdonald who;  attended the'annual nomination at  Mission City on Monday reported the  sale of the property.  When the second dam is .built at  the red bridge part of this land will  be flooded and any road builtat the  present time to enable the settlers to  come out would after the second dam  is built be useless.  Not having to build this road is  one of the benefits following the getting together of the Mission Council  and the B. C. E. R. and is really the  first results of the present B. C.E. R.  By-law which comes before the people on Saturday next.  The sale of this land, which shows  that the conmpany means business, is  having its effect in deciding many, of  the ratepayers to see that so far as  they are concerned, have the sanction  of the Municipality when it comes to  voting.- At least,such is-the report  that reaches this office.

She.  is quite willing to Send..out countless  city folk in the hope,that they may  be transformed, into farmers in their  new environment, but' she. has fewer  farmers to -spare than many other  countries from which Canada in the  past-has drawn excellent settlers.  This is illustrated by the homestead  entries.
