Barrow,  minister of agriculture.  The addross of the president was  as  follows: , , '  , Ladies and gentlemen:  It is, I'bolieve, customary for the  president to review at tho ' annual  meeting, the important ovents which  have taken place in the fruit world  during the previous year.- Tho report of the executive and - directors  which will be placed ' before you  deals with the main activities of a  more general nature.  i venture to say, that during the  34 years that this association has  been functioning, there has��������� never  been a, year of more momentous  happenings in the fruit industry, and  there has never been a time calling,  iui- greater exertion on the part of  . everyone to work together for the  common good.  It is necessary to remind you - of  the perilous - condition in which  fruit growers found themselves at  'the close of the 1922 season when  the net returns were -found to be  far below the cost of production. You  are all familiar with the steps taken with regard to the marketing  problem..  As a result of lengthy investigations, which I was privileged to take  some part in, and after propaganda  work carried out by Prof. Macklin,  Mr. Sapiro and Mr. Boyd Oliver, it  w as j ���������d echoed_, ..after ..very, ,t caref.ul.Jn-  vestigation,1 that^'the 'principle of  the co-operative marketing of ' our  produce on a. commodity basis was  the only one through which we  might-hope to solve our difficulties.  The growers of tree fruits-in the  Interior adopted this principle whole  heartedly and actually 85 per cent,  of the total tonnage was signed up  by the Associated Growers of B. C.  on 5-year contracts. A large pere'enr-  age of vegetable growers also signed  up similiar contracts, and tomato  growers in addition formed their own  commodity association which 1 will  refer to later. The berry growers  were not quite so successful in forming a collective organization, but a  big step w.as made towards this by  the formation of strong local organizations on the Island and Mainland  which it is hoped will shortly- adopt  the principle of the co-operation and  ��������� by sinking local differences come  ���������: together as one organization.-  I It is possible that too much was  expected from the co-operaive organizations the first year. The task undertaken was a gigantic one consider  ing the short time available in which  to organize so as to be able to handle  the 1923 crops. Some may say that  action was too hasty,.but the situation was so serious that it was felt  (Continued on Page Two)  McRAE   CHARGES  FROM  THE  SEARCHLIGHT  The wording of the charges, as  they apear in the petition which the  Provincial party sent to Victoria, is  as   follows:  "Your petitioners, representing  the Provincial party in various districts of B. C. chairge as follows:  "1. That in the years 1915 and  1916 the financial affairs of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway Company had become seriously involved  and it was desired to secure further  funds from the province of British  Columbia.  "2. To secure the goodwill of the  representatives of the Conservative  party and of the Liberal party ��������� In  the Legislature, those interested in  the Pacific Great -Eastern-. Railway  made gifts of money to representatives or both the Conservative and  the Liberal parties..  "3. The sum of $50,000. of Uie  money of the Pacific Great Eastern  Railway Company or their contractors or persons associated or interested with them was. drawn .from the  Union Bank and paid to W. J., Bowser, then a minister, of the crown in  British Columbia and now the leader  of His Majesty's opposition in the  local legislature.  "4. An  approximately  equal, sum  was drawn from the said Union Bank  and paid to William Sloan, then a  candidate of the Liberal party interest and now minister of mines in  British Columbia.5"  "5. As a result of these two payments the promoters of the Pacific  Great Eastern Railways Company-  were assured of protection in any  event of the ensuing general election  and as a iresult of such contributions,  protection and favorable treatment  have been fully accorded."

UWETJWT.FCE?  ^L-^     (.    I'M60NMTEULJ  "l'> ^X<-~S    VEfc POP.       /  :T## ABBOTSFORD POST  Published Every Thursdy  Published Every Friday  Member of B. O. and Yukon WcckljvNewspaper Assn.  FRIDAY,   JANUARY   25,   1924.  What Advertising Can Do.  " Without advertising there would be no  newspapers. To the extent, therefore, that  the public of any community appreciate the  service performed for them by their newspapers, to "that extent should they feel beholden to the regular advertisers, who maintain  this service. Many advertisers get no direct  return,- but are content with the knowledge  that by their investment in promoting the  prosperiy of the local press they deserve the  indirect though perhaps substantial return  that flows from .tne goodwill of their community: But there are others who secure returns so direct and prompt that they can be  tabulated just like the interest on any other  investment. This article has to do with an  experience of that kind, which has come to  the attention of the Canadian Daily Newspapers' Association and is being published  by that association for the information of its  members, the press of Canada.  This article of appreciation has not been  written by a publisher, or other seller of advertising. "Advertising," he proceeds, "is a  curious thing. It has had to' be taken on .  faith for the'most part. You can't, usually  measure its effects.' Men who advertise and  find their business prospering keep on "advertising. Men whose business has been slow  sometimes try advertising _and find their  business growing. Then they keep on adver-.  Using. That's the reason you can't measure  its results. If men started advertising and  stopped, and started and stopped often-  enough, you might be able to measure the results'in their business. Of course,-to do that  ���������would almost invariably ruin the effectiveness of the advertising. As it is, advertising  has to be adopted on principle and stuck to  because of one's confidence in its soundness  and its general results." This buyer of advertising continues:  The'tremendous  growth   of advertising in   spite,  of the fact that you couldn.'t separate its effects from  the effects of all the other forces that make for good  business, is perhaps a greater      tribute to its power  than it would be if exact measurement were possible.  Men are not ordinarily willing to place " such  great faith and pay such huge sums of money for an  agency whose effect they cannot isolate and measure. When they do, it means that its power is so  tremendous that it doesn't need to be measured to.'  be believed  in.  It's particularly gratifying, however, ' when  you've been acting for a long time upon principles  that you've believed in, to run across a demonstration  that proves how right you've been.  That's why we are so mucii pleased with an illustration which we've just come across in going over the  figures of one of our customers. Of course, there  have been other factors involved in their varying fortunes, but the way in which their property paralleled-  their advertising appropriation is too remarkable to be  overlooked. The only thing'we are sorry about is that  the firm whose figures we give herewith can't go back  several years and change their policy so that they'd  be as far along now as they might have been.  It cost them something in the way of possible  volume and profits to learn their lesson and be convinced.  While they may have learned it hard, we don't  think you'll shake their faith easily. The figures  for the last five seasons offer such a lesson and warning that we're going to let you have them.  The great point about advertising is that the  seed you plant this year keeps hearing next year, and  tho year after and as long ns you keep planting fresh  seed.  You lnumi't expect your business to show us,  quick a response as this business did. The best ad-.  . verihilng'doesn't try directly to sell goods, ft tries  to create faith and confidence In you and the goods  you sell. And, of course, the advertising isn't worth  anything unless your merchandise and your service  make good on the impression which the advertising  creates. '  Otherwise it's like food which looks attractive but  doesn't satisfy your hunger, or medicine which you  pay for, but which doesn't do you any good. All you  get out of it, and all the people who try it once get out  of it, is the memory of a disappointment..  The interesting thing to you and to us and to  the public is the effect of this advertising upon the  price of clothes and the volume of business and the  merchant's profit.  The writer gives a table showing the exact outlay  for advertising and the total of sales during a period  or years, and summarising the results thus shown  says: "ThiH means that for every $10,000 worth of  business they 'did in"the last half.of lflH they, spent  $24 0 on advertising in tiie first hair of 11)18. Tho  business dropped off"so that they'only did $6,273 in  the first half of 1 1118 for every $.10,000 they had  done.' I'll the second half of lit 18 they say their mistake and for every $10,000 of business done in the  first half of the year they'spent $'635. on advertising. The business increased so that for every $10,-  000 they did $12,640. Their gross profits dropped to  38.60 per cent.'.but their net'profit was Increased to  8.24 per cent. 2ii 1919 they'went still further in the  same direction. For every ,$10,000 of business done  in 1918 they'spent $946 on advertising. The business' increased so''that for every $10,000 of business  they did $19,780. The gross profit shrank to 37.7  per cent, but the net profit increased to 11.02 per  "cent."    This is his concluding advice:  There's a good'deal of similarity between advertising and agriculture.. You've got to plant the  seed and tend it carefully in order to get the harvest.  Some time/usually elapses between the planting and  the .reaping. It's the same with advertising; you've  got to "start advertising, and ' keep" advertising, if  you want to get results, but the harvest is increased  sales; and. the crops are bumper if you'keep on tilling.'  WOMAN SENATORS  Canadian women have as a rule given their British sisters a lead in entering public life, but the  events of the past year have reversed the situation,  as British public women have gradually forged to the  front in the affairs of the nation until they occupy  commanding-positions in all the different social, mu-  ncipal and legislative administrations.open for "women  to contest and win by public endorsement.  ; British Columbia a few years ago was quoted as  an outstanding example by being the first province  in Canada to gain woman's suffrage, and later had  the honor of electing the first woman' member of  Parliament in the Dominion.        /l'   .  This progressive movement has been dulled lat������-  iy, mainly because fewer western women could be  peisuaded to run for office.  "' A strong effort is now being made by the other  western provinces to make it possible for a woman  to be appointed as Senator in the upper Federal  House.  This is a movement in the right direction, as we  firmly believe if women's sphere in public life extends to parliamentary activities and political admin-  stration; the entire field should be thrown open, instead of only "one section. If,, for instance, an .important measure affecting woman's work is introduced .in the Parliament of any province or in the Dominion house, and that measure in course of time is referred to the Canadian Senate, for eridorsation before  becoming the law of the land, is it not doubly necessary that.a woman, sponsor should,be in a senatorial  seat, ready to explain and debate the principles of  the statute desired ?-  Logically this argument Is impregnable, and we  firmly believe that the present Ottawa government  will shortly recognize the.justice of the demand and  introduce the necessary legislation to permit the appointment of woman senators.  In this respect we also put forward British CoT  lumbia's right to have the first woman senator appointed from the many prominent public women who'  have taken an'active part in this province in introducing progressive legislation .affecting woman's rights  and assisting in having .laws passed in our Provincial  Legislature protecting and safeguarding women's interests in every possible manner.  That pioneer work is entitled to recognition, and  we hope to see every woman's organization endorse  by way of petition the claim of this province to have  Canada's, first, woman senator appointed from" tho  many women In British Columbia which could fill the  position with fitting dignity and grace.���������Western  Woman's Weekly.

Authority gains   nothing by suppressing liberty;  liberty loses Its jife if it suppresses authority,  THE  Forecasts of conditions in Canada  during .1924 contributed by several  hundred manufacturers to the Annual Review Number of Industrial  Canada are in tho main optimistic..  SomotUO por cent, of the reports received express tho opinion that business in 11)24 will be bettor than it  was in 1923. The remaining 40 per  cent, are less hopeful, ranging from  those who expect business to be - n-  bout tho same as it was last year tc  those who are frankly pessimistic  regarding the outlook.  Reviewing conditions during 1923  it is found that in .a good many lnei  business was spotty, some' months  showing favorable returns and others  falling back in a discouraging way.  Disturbed world conditions1 continued to exert an unfavorable influence  and many of the manufacturers reporting contend that, until these conditions right themselves, there cannot be a genuine revival in- business  in Canada. Low prices of agricultural products, due to the state of international markets, are preventing the  farmer from again.becoming a strong  factor in the market for manufactured goods, and this condition is affecting particularly the manufacturers of agricultural implements.  On the other hand there have been  in Canada certain developments  which have tended to offset these  unfavorable conditions. Activity in  the automobile industry with its various ramifications, continued expan-  son in the pulp and paper industry,  further developments in mining,  the extenson on a-large, scale of hy-  ro-electric works, the construction of  canals and docks, the . building of  considerable new railway equipment,,  the good roads programme,, and- the  fairly active year in ��������� general- construction have all contributed to  keep the wheels of industry (turning  in Canada.,  Conditions, have therefore varied  largely with the type of industry.  Thus, while the agricultural implement manufacturer has been experiencing dull times,,the manufacturer  of automobiles has had a busy year.  All those industries which are dependent upon the automobile industry have shared in its activity..Again,-  industries like the woollen ^ textile  industry, and the -boot and shoe industry have been finding that the  low tariff on British goods has permitted large quantities -of these  goods to enter Canada, and this has  so cut into their business that operations havo had to be curtailed.- A-  gainst this condition may be placed  the" activity in the pulp and paper industry, where newsprint mills in  particular have been breaking rec-  'ords in production and export.  WINTER SHORT. COURSES  FOR FARMERS AND  WIVES  The University of British Columbia at Vancouver is again offering  winter short courses for farmers,  their wives, ��������� sons and daughers.  These courses renewed last year  were well attended and they are being offered 'for the" second time in  an enlarged and improved form".  The course given by the Agronomy  and Animal'Husbandry division 'under the direction of Professors P. A.  Boving and H. M. King commences  on January 28th and continues for  three week's. During this time lectures of a very practical nature will  be given during the mornings' and  the afternoons will be ' devoted to  work in the laboratories In regard  to soils, crops,' fertilizers', breeds of  live stock, diseases of live stock)  judgng, etc. The staffs'of the departments will be assisted by some olit-  side speakers from -the-.Department  of Agriculture, and the Experimental  Farms, the object being to give the  best course that can be put on.  In addition to the work, outlined  In Agronomy, the results obtained  from experimental crop,_ production  will be very carefully studied and  ah effort made to show tiie best  strains and varieties lor British Columbia conditions. The Department  of Animal Husbandry carries a number ol breeds of live stock Including  Ayrshire and Jersey ,. dairy cattle,  Hereford and Shorthorn beef cattle,  Clydesdale horses, Berkshire, Yorkshire and Duroc Jersey swine, Oxford, Shropshire and Southdown  sheep. In addition to studying the  types on he University farm, nearby  herds and flocks are being used lor  this purpose. A. special study has  been arranged for, of fodder crops,  and emphasis will also be laid on fertilizers, silos and silo construction,  milk fever; garget, abortion, home  curing and  cutting of meats, etc.  As noted in the advertising columns, the course is open to anyone  regardless of their previous education.

On Thursday last a large delega- i  tion of Mission and Hatzic fruitgrowers'attended the B. C. Fruit Growers' Association meeting held at Chilliwack. They wished to be present  when the following resolution came  up for discussion as it is a very important question with the growers  of this district:'  Whereas, an amendment to the  Fruit Act makes the use of shallow pint crates compulsory for  shipping raspberries after October 1, 1924, and  Whereas, the present 2-;"> quart  crate has proved in use the ideal  container for raspberries, and '  Whereas, the shallow pint- crate  contains approximately 3 lbs. more  fruit,-showing a combined minimum loss to the growers of this district of $18,000.00 per annum,  including extra picking charges,  and probably an amount in excess  of this, and  Whereas, the crates are almost  .. identical in appearance, and the  increased contents are not apparent to the consumer at time of  purchase, and the price, therefore,  ., will not increase proportionately,  and 4  Wheeas, the returns on shallow  pint crates shipped in a test car  during 1923 were identical with  those in the 2-5 quart crates in  the samo car, showing an absolute loss to the grower of 3 lbs. of  fruit, plus additional picking  charges on each shallow pint  era to-so shipped in 1!)23, and  Whereas, I his legislation, prejudicing tho interests of an Important industry, was puBsed contrary  to the will of those engaged in  that industry, in the Province of  British Columbia, is of a coercive  nature, abhorrent to the principles  of democratic government, be it  therefore  Resolved���������That the Premier  and Government of Canada be requested to enact legislation permitting the continued optional use  of the 2-5 quart raspberry crate,  without which the extinction of a  large and lately prosperous British  Columbia, now languishing, is  threatened.  The    resolution    passed    without  difficulty.  Alex. S. Duncan  Barrister      Solicitor  Notary Public  OFFICE  .  J. A. Gatherwood RnildJng  Phone-8001 P. O. Box 69  MISSION CITY, B. C  m.

FRUIT MEN IN  CONVENTION AT CHILMWACK  (Continued from Page Ono'l  LINNIE���������CATHERWOOD  (Trom th������ rra������er Valley  Becord)  A very pretty wedding of wide  interest to Mission City and district,  took place on Monday afternoon at  3:30 at All Saints Church, when  Miss Lily Catherwood, eldest daughter of,Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Catherwood,  M. L. A., became the bride of Mr.  George Linnie, of North Battleford,  Sask., in the presence of a large  number of friends and relatives.  The church, which had been decorated by' girl friends of the bride,  presented a beautiful . appearance  with ivy, evergreens, leaves and  poinsettas, artistically arranged  across the front of the choir loft in  a trellis of gothic arches. The soft  strains of Blgar's "Salut d'Amour"  and "Venetian Love Song" by Nevin,  played by Mr. F. Bannister, filled the  building as the bridal party was a-  waited.  The bride, who entered the church  on the arm of her father, to the  strains of Wagner's Bridal March,  looked charming in a suit of french  blue, embroidered in grey and opening over an overblouse of grey and  blue georgette. She wore a smart  taffeta hat trimmed with silvery blue  ribbon and flowers, and carried a  bouquet of fragant carnations and  opehlla roses. The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Edith A.  B. Catherwood, who was beautifully  gowned in a frock of blue spruce  crepe de chene, designed with a pan-  nel effect of frills, and wore a small  silver cloth turban of the same  shade.1 She carried a bouquet of  sweetheart roses and fern.  The ueremony was performed by  Rev. J. W. "Weatherdon, assisted by  Rev. H. IT. K. Greene, vicar of All  Saints. During the signing of the  register Mis. Randolp Appleby  sang "0 Perfect Love", accompanied  on the organ by Mr. F. Bannister,  who also rendered Mendelssohn's  "Wedding March" as the bridal party  left the church.  Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the  bride's parents, when Mrs. Catherwood recived the guests attired in  a beautiful gown of navy canton  crepe.  The happy couple left on the evening train for Seattle and Victoria,  before returning to their home at  North ttattleford, Sask., where  the groom is assistant superintendent of the Canadian National Railway there. The bride wore over  her travelling costume a coat of  racoon, the gift of the groom.  Mr. and Mrs. Linnie have the best  of wishes of a large number of  friends here, who join In a wishing  them all joy and prosperity.  STOOD ART��������� BREARLEY  A quiet wedding took place on  Thursday evening last, when Miss  Eleanor 'Elizabeth Brearley, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Brearley of Dewdney, was united in marriage to Mr. Walter Holton Stoddart  of Dewdney by the Rev. H. H. K.  Greene, Vicar of All  Saints.  The ceremony was performed In  the presence of a few friends and  the bride was given in marriage by  Mr. Brearley; The bride wore her  travelling costume of .a brown coat  and hat en suite.  The happy couple left later for  the coast cities, where a honeymoon  will be spent. They will reside in  Dewdney, where a Large number of  friends will wish them every prosperity &nd  happiness.  by the best able to judge that a  chance must be taken .at once ��������� to  put over co-operative marketing with  no half measures. >'  From the outset.all commoci ty organizations were faced with having  to dispose of the largest crops in  the history of the .fruit and vegetable Industry, in itself a serious  problem, in addition compt .,/.  markets, also promises' .to be in a  simlliar condition', .and finally, there  was the general depressed condition  of the world's markets In all commodities with roduced buying .poA'or  of the consumer.  It is true that the Prairie crops  promised to bo a record and that  tho Old Country fruit crop was a  failure but it must be remembered  that tho record Prairie crop followed four years of comparative crop  failure and tho returns from the  1923 record crop had hardly bogun  to reach tho Pralrlo farmers by the  time most of our fruit crop was sold.  As regards tho Old Country market,  everything would havo gone ' and  the United States been as well organized as wc are, and some control  of distribution would have been attain od.  It may be cold comfort to us who  havo received much less than the  cost of production to say & that wo  havo done bettor than tho East with  our berries and than tho States and  the South with our trco fruits, but  this old fact is nevertheless true and  v/e can only attribute it to our co-op-  jrntive organizations, whether . we  ihp through these organizations or  through independent shipping firms.  As president of tho British Co-  lumba Fruit Growers' Association  which represents the industry as a  whole, I do not wish it to be thought  I would use any influence 1 may  have to furthering the interests of  co-operative organizations to the  detriment of independent shippers.  I have publicly stated this-on several occasions. Personally, 1 believe  In co-operation but I am absolutely-  opposed to any form of coercion, and  consider that every man has.a right  to his own convictions'and is entitled to all the assitsance and protection our associaton can offer.  There is no doubt that all growers  are disappointed with the prices received or anticipated and it should  be our special endeavor to consider  how our organizations can be improved and in what ways we can lower our cost of production. It is easy  enough to offer destructive criticism and this seems to have become  almost a pastime with many growers. Constructive criticism is more  difficult to obtain, and there "is i.ot  enough of it. ...  It seems to be a widespread custom in this country to elect.bfi'ici.'ils  and almost immediately to start 'criticism and even villifying them. This  is not confined to fruit organizations  by any means and it seems "to me  that the knowledge of this practise  often deters many of our best men  from accepting office.  Let us therefore try and adopt a  more charitable attitude towards  those we entrust with the running  of our affairs, and I am sure we  shall be rewarded with more efficient and better service.  The lowering of our cost of production is a subject which should  receive our greatest consideration.  We are too apt to attribute our low  returns to high overhead charges,  and to neglect our own production  costs. It is always easier to blame  someone else than to admit our own  failings or to use a colloquialism  and mixed metaphor���������we "pass the  buck instead of getting down to  hard tacks in' our own cabbage  patch."  The extension department of the  College of Agriculture at' the B. C.  University has rendered a very valuable service in carrying out orchard  survey work for the last few years.  The results arrived at are worthy  of careful study and will go a long  way in assisting us to locate our  weak spots.  It must be remembered that these  costs are the average for a number  of representative farms, and it  should be the aim of every good  grower to see that none of his costs  exceed the average, and if they do  the reason should be ascertained.  The grower with average costs below  tiie average will make money, and  those above will be forced out of  business.  Particular attention should be  paid to the elimination of poor vari-  ties which cannot be expected to  fetch remuneratve prices in the future. In the past when the demand,  exceeded the supply these "off varieties" could be disposed of at a profit, but their day of usefulness is  past and they are now a detriment  on the markets.  The increasing of per acre yield  lends itself more than any other  factor to decreasing the cost of production, l't is now well known that  our averago yields.are much below  those obtained in Washington, although, our per acre costs compare  very favorably, and, wore our yields  to bo increased we should bo able to  compote on much more favorable,  terms.  I am convinced that growers have  still much to learn as regards methods of pruning, and there Is no doubt  in my mind that we have lost millions of dollars through following  the extreme heading back system, of  pruning our trees.  Oregon Agricultural College experiments have shown an increased,  yield of. 65 per������������������ cent, where long  pruning methods have been adopted.  The intelligent use of the spray is  not by any means universal and  much money is still being wasted on  tlje "follow my leader- principle" re  gardless of whether there is anything  to .spray for or not. Unfortunately  the! necessity for sprayi-ig is becoming greater every yeir. ������:id this item  is one which we cannot hope to e-  liininate or even decrease on the  whole. r~  The practise of rc-ver cropping Is  becoming more general, especially  with the use of having v Ich which,  when once establised should prove  cheaper than  clean  cultivation.  Considerably more attention is being paid to thinning the fruits, by  many this was at first looked upon  is.an "added expenso whereas experience has shown-that its cost is many  'imes saved in the inorcasd yield of  .narketable fruit.  There is still need for improvo-  aiont in irrigation practise in many  trchards, especially as ' regards cutting down the length of the irrigation furrows. This may mean extra  t'luniing or better still piping with  standards, wheh, those times the  grower can ill afford, but the economy land increased efficiency will  wararnt the  initial  expense.  There i������, still one important factor; to mention which is lowering  our por acre production, and that is  the continual growing of useless  trees, often on non-orchard land. We  must oliminato tho "boarders" which  do'not now and nover will pay for  tlioir keep. , We may as well lace the  hard facts and realise that many orchards, or parts-of them, planted to  poor varieties on unsuitable soil  slmuld be pulled out, and the land  converted to mixed farming. Until  this ,is done, the .average per acre  yield for the* province must remain  low.  Most of the facts I have stated  are lenowh to you,all but I think at  this time i will do no harm to emphasize them so that none may be  lost sight of when we-are putting our  house in order, as we must do, or go  out' of business.  I mentioned above the Tomato  Growers' Organization and I wish to  use this as an illustration of what  can be'done, by united effort. Tliis  organization comprises 100 per cent,  of the commercial tomato growers of  the Interior from Kamloops to Kere-  meos whites; and Orientals. T hope  that some members of that organization will be able to speak at this  meetingon the work they have accomplished. - Suffice it to say that  they,-were able to contract with the  canners at $17.00'per ton for tomatoes against ? 10.50 per ton paid to  the growers in Ontario who were unorganized.  Now I come home to our own association. It is plaseing to note the  increase in membership ^ but it * is  not nearly large enough, and con^  sldering" the efforts made to obti n  the'support of the 5000 odd fruit  and .vegetable growers in the province it must be considered unsatisfactory. The difficulty in obtaining  members "does',not'"He ,ih the dollar  subscription, which few refuse to  pay when personally canvassed, but  in the great amount of work necessary for a personal canvas. The only  solution of this difficulty I can see is  to obtain members through the good  offices of the existing commercial  shipping organizations. This can lie  done by putting a resolution at Ihe  annual meetings making all members .ipso fact members of the B. C.  F. G. A. with the proviso that the  dollar subscription will be deducted  from the returns unless advice.is received within a certain time that the  member does not wish to join the  B. C. F. G. A.  You will remember that some  years ago we broke away from the  tradjtion that the provincial horticulturist should be our .secretary,  and through the good offices of the  Dean of the Faculty of Agriculture  at the University the services of one  of hie staff ,was kindly given to us.  We cannot ��������� appreciate too highly  what this free service has meant to  the association, but I think it is unreasonable for, us to .expect this to  be continued indefinitely, and that  we should at the age of'34 be able  to work on our own feet. It should  give us more self respect and enhance the value of our work to outside eyes. I mention this as 1 see  the question of reorganization is to  be brought before the meeting.  In conclusion, may I say feelingly  how much I sympathise with my fellow growers in these trying .times,  and may I appeal to them for greater  co-operation in the board sense, in  all undertakings���������for more construe-,  tive criticism nd less 'knocking' and  for a greater spirit of optimism to  take the place of the prevaling wave  of pessimism.

LIONEL E.  TAYLOR,  - President.  Asking for Experimental Station  The annual meeting of the Abbotsford and District Board of Trade  was.h'eld on Monday evening in tho  Parish Hall, the Men's Club holding  a joint meeting with the Board.  ��������� Mr; F. J. R. Whitchelo, president  of the Board of Trade, was chairman  of the evening, and introduced to  the gathering Mr. W. L. Macken of  Chilliwack, who had kindly consented to attend and address the meeting. '  Mr. Macken gave a splendid talk  on the value of the Board of Trade  to the community, and the necessity  of every .resident giving to it their  loyal'support.     '  Mr. Macken "sighted the building  and carrying on of the M.-S.-A. Hospital,'; as one "evidence of what the  comifninity, 'spirit'had already < done  for the district, and said he felt sure  that were this same community  spirit used to build up and back  the local Board of-Tirade, the-result  would be eminent.  In thanking Mr. Macken for his interesting address, the chairman, Mr.  Whitchelo, also urged the members  of the Board to give it their undivided support, as he believed that great  good could be accomplished in .a  district situated such as Abbotsford,  which no doubt has a wonderful future before it. ���������  The' election of officers of the  Board for the ensuing yeaia then  took place and resulted as follows:  President, A.

McCallum, thanked the  members for the honor bestowed  upon him and asked the united support of the members for the coming  year.  In appreciation of his valued services as secretary, a hearty vote .of  thanks was tendered Mr. R. H. Eby.  A general discussion arose as . to  what the annual membership fee  should be, and it was finally decided  to have, it remain as that of last  year, viz., $2.50 per annum.  Mr. Angus Campbell spoke on the  sugar beet industry, and requested  that the. members of the board get  behind the movement, and give it  their support and co-operation, as he  was convine'd that the district is a-  all   dapted for the raising of sugar beets,  IFrora   ttw   Fraiar   Tails j   Reccrjl  The local representative, Mr. W.

Mr. Campbell Invited the members  to be puesent at a meeting to be  held in the Whatcom Road Hall on  Saturday afternoon at 2 oclock,  when representatives of the proposed  sugar factory and others interested  will be present to go fully, into the  matter.

E., was  chosen to head the Canadian National    Eailways, ,  one   of   his   first ���������   ���������-������������������ -���������������������������--  acts was to put  into motion' machinery for aiding in the colonization and . development of Canada, particularly  along the lines of  the National System.- He realized  " that one" 'of the  crying -needs . of  , Canada was for  more population,  and he .has since  been quoted, on  several occasions  as saying that if.  Canada .had a  population of  twenty-five mil-  Ion people, Canada would have  no railway problem.  The ' organization of a department to look after colonization and  development was entrusted by Sir  Henry to Mr. W. D. Robb, Vice-  President, and Mr. R.obb at once  proceeded to build up the necessary  organization to look after this most  important national ,work. Investigations, conferences and careful  planning gradually brought into  being an effective department, the  effort of the year ��������� culminating ,in  the engagement of Dr. W. J. Black,  Deputy Minister of" Immigration  and Colonization in, the Federal  Government, as Manager' of the  Colonization and Development Department of the Canadian National  Railways, with headquarters in  London, England. .That was early  in the Fall of 1923. Dr. Black pro'-  ceeded at once to Great Britain,  where he spent some weeks carrying out a series of investigations.  ��������� These completed, he returned to  Canada and a general conference  of all officers of the department  was called and a definite plan of  colonization and development was  drawn up and announced. . This  was the first definite announcement  on immigration to be announced  in Canada.  Dr. Black's Career  In engaging Dr..Black, the Canadian National Railways secured  an officer who is probably better  acquainted, with the immigration  needs of Canada, and the best  methods of remedying those needs,  than any other man in the country. All his life he has been connected with the agricultural industry and has run the gauntlet of  all its intricate phases. He was  born and brought up on a farm in  Dufferin County, Ontario,' and in  1902 graduated from the Ontario  Agricultural College with a Toronto University degree. At his  graduation he was appointed editor of the "Farmers' Advocate,"  Winnipeg, Manitoba, and he held  this post for two years. ��������� In 1905  he joined the Government of .Manitoba as Deputy Minister of. Agriculture, a post which he left the  following year to became President  of the Manitoba Agricultural College. He. remained in this important position until 1916, when he became Commissioner of Agriculture  for Canada. At the conclusion of  the Great War in 1918, Dr. Black  was appointed Chairman of the  Soldiers'- Settlement Board of Canada, a position he held until his  appointment, in 1921, as Deputy  Minister of Immigration and  Colonization for Canada.  Dr. Black is a man .who is thoroughly respected, both for his  opinions and his achievements,  throughout Canada. He carries a  .  lasting and   gen  uine enthusiasm  into his work, and  as a quiet but eloquent and convincing speaker  he is well fitted  to broadcast the  message of his  important      mis-  The Policy.  There are seven ���������  points to the programme which  has- received the  ^'approval of Sir  Henry W. Thornton, and the principles of policy  will be placed into  effect i m m e d -  iately. Dr. Black  sailed for England again on  January Gtli, and  T  _,   , on his arrival in  J. Black London    his    de  partment commenced to function  actively.' The thorough character  of the policy can be judged from a  recapitulation of the seven principles, which are as follows:  2���������To influence the immigration  and satisfactory settlement in  Canada of the largest possible  number of people of productive  capacity that the country can  absorb  and  assimilate.  2'���������To contribute to the dissemination of information concerning the vast and extensive natural resources of the Dominion and the widespread opportunities for industrial development, so that capital may be  attracted from other countries  and invested where enterprises  will be legitimately rewarded.  3~To promote the land settlement of new Canadians under  conditions that will ensure the  maximum possibility of success'' in their farming operations, and enable them to enjoy such social and religious  institutions as are necessary to  individual happiness and contentment.  ^���������To encourage improvement in  agriculture, that more diversified methods may be employed  in fanning, and that crop,  livestock, and dairy production  may be increased in accordance with market demands and  prospects.  g���������To assist by organized effort  in the immigration of young  people of desirable type and  character, especially from  Great Britain, and in their  placement in respectable rural  homes where they may become  qualified to participate in constructive activities and acquire  citizenship of distinct value to  Canada.  Q���������To aid in the development of  new opportunities for service  and to facilitate every effective  means of selecting immigrants  physically fit and anxious for  work.  7���������To co-operate with the Federal  and Provincial Governments  and business organizations  throughout the Dominion in  promoting all measures calculated to contribute toward an  increase in immigration of  adaptable people, and in their  settlement under thee* most  favorable conditions possible.  ���������m-  fii^Ttfil  "U." -(   -.,,..

ABBOTSFORD, B. C.  2-5 Qt. Crate  Question for Our  Board to Continue  (Trom tha Tracer Valley  flaeord)  "Although the local growers wert,  successful in having their wish and  having the resolution passed for retaining te 2-5 crate it is a matter  that might well be further discussed  and carried before the dominion authorities so that the shallow pint  and the. 2-5 quart be made optional in the dominion. It is understood that "in the - east the shallow  pint is' a matter of more importance  to the growers as most of the berries  from the Niagara are shipped to the  American side, and-must be in the  shallow.pint. - In British Columbia  our berries are not exported, but  shipped to >a different part of our  own dominion, and the 2-5 quart  has proven to be a better shipper. If  it-was,optional with the B. C. growers which one they used the question  would be, satisfactorily disposed of.  In support of having it made optional, it' is claimed that the same  principle of option is allowed in the  poultry business and in the shipment  of pork.',"In Ontario the apples are  permitted to be shipped in barrels,  while in the west we have the box. ft  is also understood that the growers  of Nova Scotia are in favor of the  2-5 crate.  it is claimed that the wholesalers  are behind the local growers claiming that the growers      are right in  With the reognition by the American Automobile Association, ' the Ii.

(Triiio  Finn TallMr Kerord)  ��������� Misison City basket ball fans witnessed sumo very interesting games  at I lie rink during ihe past week. On !  Saturday night last i .vo" games were  staged, tho first being between an  Agassi-/, team and the Mission Senior  H. squad. Tho visitors gave a very  creditable account of themselves,  considering they, were playing a more  experienced combination. The final  score was Mission 28, Agassz 20, Re  lereo, Angus McLean.  The next event was between one o  New Westminster's star aggregation  ���������the Y. M. 0. A. Senior B lean  and Mission Senior A team, and wa:  strenuously contested all the wa:  through, with the Y's winning by i  score of 30 to 17.  The game was not as one sided al  the score would indicate. l'udoec  had Mission scored half the shots .attempted the score would have been  considerably altered.  The Y's" played sin excellent combination gamo and their shots nearlj  always registered.  The home boys played a hard and  fast game, the only fault lo bo found  was in their shooting, every one on  the team missing the basket repeat  udly.  ' It might be mentioned���������as a sort  of solace to the losers that the visitors were the same combination wh'  dofented the Vancouver Rowing  Club at Westminster the night ba-  lore by a score of 81 to <), Evan Low-  is alone scoring 22 points. That's  what Vic Andrews would call "slip-  pin' 'om over."  The teams  were:  M ission���������Cox (2 ) T" Eckardt (C),  "O. Gallil'ord ill), Solloway (6), Mac-  Lean,   Ronton.    Total   17.

The  The Cadets from Sardis    and    their  opponents from the strawberry belt  were the first to clash, and the game  was a lively one.    ..The   locals were  still smarting from their first.defeat  since  their     organization    administrated at Chilliwack    by   the'   same  Sardis bunch recently, . and it   was  clearly  evident .firom  the  start that  they were out ;to see .that this did  not happen again. When it comes to  shooting both    the    Seniors    might  take a lesson from the Cadets. The  final score read:  Cadets 32;    Sardis  11.

Sardis  would score and then Mission would  even up, but near the finish-of the  first half Sardis took the lead' by several points.  In the second frame the locals attended to their knitting in good  style and tied the score. Sardis then  went ahead by one point. The locals  tried hard to overcome this lead, and  even with four free shots a few minutes before time, failed 1j connect.  The game ended with Sardis 2(8;  Mission 27.    H. Eckardt refereed.

It was between  the Senior B team from    Chilliwack  and the Mission Senior    A combination.     When  these two  teams clash  it can be taken for granted that    it  will not be any pink tea affair,    or  even a hotly, contested      Badminton  tournament.    Tuesday night's  game  was no exception, the checking being  close and hard, although devoid    of  .'any rough work.      Both teams displayed an unusual amount of "pep"  all tho way through, substitutes'being  freqently'      used.     One   minute  the Wrielis would bo    making a desperate effort to     score,      while the  next would see Mission    doing    likewise.   Beaton   opened . hostilities   by  scoring shortly after the whistle blow  but a minute later Chilliwack evened   up.'-"Happy"'' Solloway   put   the  home'bunch  in   the lead again,  but  once  again   Chilliwack     evened   up,;  Eckardt  delighted   the   fans with  a  nice solo; Chilliwack  failed to come  back.  In the second       half Rex Cox  put the game in/the clear,by a very  pretty shot from the Hide lines, and  from   then   on   excitement     reigned  supreme  till  the  final   whistle  blew  and the score was found to be Mission 20, Chilliwack 17.
