A most attractive    and    valuable  prize list was offered and approximately five hundred entries were made  the quality of ' the    exhibits    being  above the average.    The placing and  housing of-the poultry was especially  good, comfort, cleanliness and    good  .lighting being taken into consideration.    The Leghorn Utility and    Exhibition  Classes' were a special feature of the show, the    quality of the  birds was wonderful.      Special mention was made   of a    first   Leghorn  Utility hen, owned by    H. J. Lait of  Abbotsford, and a Barred Rock cockerel belonging, to T. Ii. Venning    of  Burnaby, which were splendid birds.  Rhode sland Red,    Wyandottes   and  Barred   Rocks    were   among   other  leading varieties entered.  -  Notwithstanding the busy season  the attendance at the poultry show  was excellent and much interest was  taken.

Continuing,. ' Mr.  Fairley  said that the public had not'yet been  educated; to the grading of eggs for  the market, and that .an educational  campaign would-be^carried    on'calling-attention" to the method of buying graded eggs and tlie benefits de-  vived therefrom."'He went    on      to  explain that through the    efforts    of  Lhe B.

Mr.   -Fairley,,stated,  that, Chinese eggs ��������� were .considered a  great delicacy when they'were from  three to five years old.   '- At present  all eggs from China must be-stamped  "Product of China" according to  law.    Therefore    most  of    Chinese  eggs.go to the . Eastern    Provinces,  and very few if''any are sold in B. C.  although pieces and    letters    to    the  contrary are often seen in the news-:  papers.        The    advertisements' ���������    re  graded eggs appearing in    the    Vancouver Sun and World and   Victoria  Times, the speaker said, were educational and worth reading. The B. C.  P. A. are hoping    to    build   up    the  same egg .market for Canada as    is'  already built up in    other   products.  Quoting Professor Rice, who had attended the World's Poultry,   Exhibition at the Hague. Mr. Rice had stated that because of the grading    am.  inspection of Canadian     eggs,    they  were the best gggs    exhibited at this  exhibition at this exhibition.  Mr. Fairley advised the poultry-  men to get together for marketing  purposes- in order to- make a success  of the poultry business, and further  'advised the poultrymen to take advantage of every source of help and  information given by the govern,  ment.  Mr. R. J.,  Skelton    of    the, B.C.  PoulLry  Co-operative  Extension   Service, was the next speaker, and gave  a detailed descripton of "A Financial  Survey of    the Poultry   .Farms of. B  C." to determine the factors for pro  tit or loss of the farm and explained  the system of    same.    Mr.    Skelti-n  Look as example sixty-five farms, and  according to the  tables shown prcv-1  od lhat there is more profit in ' the  housing and    feeding    of    seven    oi  eight hundred hens', than there is vin  I ho keeping of two hundred or less.  The approximate cost of    producing a dozen eggs was 4 6 cents,    and  the approximate market value of    a  dozen eggs was 3 9  1-2    cents,    but  this was arrived at after an average  wage of $80.00 per month had been  allowed for the farmer and    interest  at 7 per cent, on his investment. Mr.  Skelton said in conclusion that    the  ,poiilti-y farmer was still the best off  as tliey had stood the financial crlu'ea  better than other    classes of >."farmers.  In addressing the meeting. Professor Lloyd of the B. C. University expressed regret that Mr. Chas.

Selections rendered by  ' the    Harmonic Orchestra'were much enjoyed  as were the' vocal selections given by  Mr. James' and Mr. James    Downie.  When-the good eats   had been'fully  enjoyed, popular toasts ��������� were made  and  appropriately  responded  to     as  follows: "The King," (National   Anthem);   "The  Judges/'' '(Mr.   James  and Prof. Lloyd); "Breeders," (Messrs.

The game, which was  played on the   recently     completed  grounds at Fern Ridge, was decided  ly interesting from the    start,    Fern  Ridge .  especially      putting    up     a  plucky fight. With about,20 minutes'  to play the score,  stood 1-0 against  Clayburn.     Shortly  after  this,  however, "they were awarded a   penalty  and scored.      This goal    apparently  disheartened Fern- Ridge,    and    two  additional goals were, scored in    the  remaining period.    The ground.vas  in poor condition.

FRIDAY, NOV KIM BE It 24, 1922  GOOD ROADS BENEFIT TO AlAi  KSi'life'IALljV THE FARMER  fcf  No other'subject now before the.  peoplp of so great a personal InieresL  to-every citizen of , the country, is  v that of highway building and improvement.' Mosi niovemonls of general interest, have a direct, personal  appeal to a certain portion of thf.  people of the country, but leave ih������t  rest outside their sphere of influence,  (loud roads have a direct mean ing  for every man, woman and child -in  tlie country. Bad roads work an injury to the entire country. ' Bud  roads work an injury Lo the entire  country.  In these days of enlighten'- I  thought on many problems of our  natinal existence, aii understanding  of the rear meaning of good roads is  beginning to permeate our people.  And yet 1 do no believe that even  now all of them realize the intimate  personal interest which they have in  highway extension and improvement.  It may be pardoned, therefore, if I  ��������� dwell briefly on the benefits that  good roads bring, not only to the  farmers and other residents of tho  rural districts, hut to urban dwellers  as well.  Good roads produce two classes  revenue, which return directly to  the people of th 3 country. As it happens these two sorts of revenues are  hidden, they are found in a slight  lessening of the cost of every article.  For this reason they are but, dimly  .understood by the average person  who has not taken the ' trouble to  study the'subject.  We. may call these two classes of  invisible-revenue. 1, Reduced cost  of hauling goods, and 2, reduced cost  of travel-.      , ���������     ,  ' .  In almost every' instance of appreciable highway improvement on a  systematic scale, the returns from  V,liese two invisible items are sufficient to pay for a bond investment.  Investigation'' has proved    that the  cost of hauling    on a    poor,   road is  twenty-two cetits per ton mile, while  ,on a good road the    charge is    less  than half of this figure.  "Let us see what' this means ��������� spo-  cifically. Suppose highway improvement saves only five cents per ton  mile of ,the hauling charge. If tlie  road carries LO.OOO tons' per mile per  clay, it can be capitalized for $10,-'  000 and the saving'of $000 will pay  for the interest charge on a bond >--  sue for'that, amount. Add the passenger traffic and rate the saving in  the form of reduced cost of travel,  as low as you like and the dividend  paid by the improved road will still  be-unbelievably high.  Coming down to concrete install-  ' ces of the benefits-of good roads:  Every boy or girl who goes to school  in this country has a distance Lo travel of from one to five miles, and  , this must be. traversed twice a day.  Good roads mean that the child can  leave home later ' and will return  earlier.- They will mean an increased attendance at school, during tho  inclement months, when poor roads  are practically impassable. Every  day lost from school means that the  ultimate education of the child is delayed,' perhaps permanently. . Tt  means a greater total period,spent  in school and less satisfactory progress while there.  ��������� Even the cause of religion suffers  through bad roads. Every minister  especially those laboring in the rui-  al districts, acknowledge that -bad  roads during certain seasons of Lhe  year are the most serious handicaps  that they have to struggle against in  their work as moral preceptors. What  applies-to the church'applles equally  to the Sunday School.  With good roads to carry them  oh their errands' of mercy the doctor  and Lhe veterinarian can both niako  calls quicker. Each is thus able to  make a--greater number of. calls per  day; to increase his efficiency, i"  other words. Morevor, the element  of time is often a matter of life or  death in  the field of medicine.  In the domain of the post office? good roads enable thn rural free  dcliveryman to save time and energy  For the rural resident this mon'.iH  quicker mail service, better service  and probably more frequent service,  flood roads for the farmer are a  priceless' boon. They make him  largely independent of weather or  seasonal conditions, With, poor roads  to contend with Lhe farmer is fordid  bo-'haul his crops, not when the market is favorable, but when the. roads  allow him to do so. It is a common  experience for the farmer to find  that he is unable to- haul, his products Lo market '���������when prices are  highest, simply because the condition of the roads that separate him  from his market are impassable. This  reacts on the dwellers in town  city, because dealers are ena  maintain high prices for  periods, through the fact  ei's with food products are unable to  get them to market.

YOUR NEWSPAPER  a n d  bled  to  extended  that farm-  inevit-  prices.���������Harry  .i,  Aside from' the .number of single  Irack minds to be found in every  community, the people generally' appreciate and accord liberal support  lo the local newspaper���������that Intim-  fiLfi medium through which-is mirrored eiich week the collective community  activities.  Your home newspaper bridges tlm  gap;.its chronicles of local news arid  views complete a circuit of information impossible to be obtained  through any other medium of human  locomotion or mechanical device. It  brings thu local community, as'vividly lo Lhe fireside as Lhe morniing  sun reveals the surrounding landscape. It is a human institution,  and therefore is imperfect; Jmt the  courageous and sincere newspaper  unalterably stands four-square for  what it belives Lo be the ultimate  good of its town and district' and  province   and   country.  Your home newspaper endeavors  Lo radiate development ��������� in ' trade,'  health in the home, progress in civic  affairs and goodwill in the intercourse between men. In the performance of its services it is bound  to run counter Lo Lhe views of some  -���������often of many: but if it hews to  the line Lhe chips' of respect will not  remain   uncounted.  Your newspaper, no matter what  petty differences may arise, is the  friend and advocate of every good  citizen, although its paramount aim  must obviously be the better destiny  of the citizenship as a whole.  Men may come and men may go  but your newspaper remains on. \t  rejoices in your successes and  grieves in your adversities. It-tries  to inspire hope' and cheerfulness,  and is the foe of hate, jealousy and  fear. 1 ts mission is ��������� co-operative,  its function kinetoscopic; its .service  omnifarious. Tt welcomes suggestions and thrives on . constructive  criticism.  The more you make use of your  newspaper, the more consistently  you support, it, the more its benefits  will be revealed and the greater service it will be able, to render for; the  increased prosperity "of the field in  which it labors." When you co-operate with your home newspaper you  are but. casting bread upon the waters of home progress.���������Swift* Current Herald.' ' ...   -      _   '-..  UtllLihS 'ttUS'COOLlNC!   WANT  v  FOR  CHILLIWACK  GROWERS  TlfR PORTS OF  VANCOUVER  AND MONTREAL  Some surprising figures regarding  trade through the port of Vancouver are contained in a memorial  recently prepared by the British Columbia Division of tlie Canadian  Manufacturers\Association and other  business organizations in' Vancouver  for presentation to the Federal Gov-,  ernment. '  The gross tonnage of vessels enter  ing Lhe port in 1921 was 10,204,401  tons. This may not appear extraordinary, but. when it is stated that  the figure for tlie port of Montreal  was 9,73;".,451 tons, or 468,950-tons  less, the growing importance of Vancouver as an ocean- port is apparent.  Vessels entering- the' port numbered  11.779, against 5,541 entering the  port of Montreal.' ��������� '-Imports were  valued at $1 97,406,8|k2,. and- exports'  at $85,270,047, ��������� compared with  $191,379,484 and $1-73,010,996 respectively for Montreal. Vancouver's  customs revenue amounted/to $12,-  986,875 against $31,573,095 for  Montreal. ' Forty steamship lines are  now using the port of Vancouver,  compared with only thirteen ten  years ago. All of which goes to show  that Vancouver's position as a great  national seaport is becoming firmly  established.  STAY TN  CANADA  Young Canadians should stay in  their own ��������� country, Sir Auckland  leddes, British ambassador to the  nitod States, advised students ot  Ridley College in an address delivered during the course of a visit  Lo his son, who attends that institution.  "At the present time in the world  he declared, "there is a great difficulty in all countries in keeping all  sections of lhe people prosperous,  This difficulty is less marked, in Can*  atla Hum in any other British Dominion, and less throughout the Empire  than'in the rest of the world. You  young-'men have go to bring the  world' buck."  He. asked the student body: "Are  you going to follow the spirit-of the  ment who fought and laid clown their  lives in the war, or are you going off  somewhere else?"  They were the children of a great  r.ace and the children of a great community, with duties to all members  of that community. He hoped the  future would not show the young  men of Canada leaving their native  land when there was so much restoration and development work to be  done. The responsibility of the . future rested on.   Ridley    and    other  The, erection of a pre-cooling plant  in Chiliiwack in time to handle    the  1923 berry, crop is practically assured as a result of the    action of' the  United  Growers    at    their;,- meeting  last week.    A plant    capable of taking care of the fruit-.shipments    for  the entire district will involve an expenditure of some ten thousand dollars, a pretty big sum to raise locally.'    The United  Growers,    however,  unanimously-agreed to    enter a five  year soiling contract with the parent  association, the 13. C. Berry Growers  and, with the permanency of organization created by such an agreement.,  they, will be able to secure    the    assistance of the parent association, it  is proposed to secure the    necessary  money upon a five year    installment  repayment basis.    By    each,   grower  guaranteeing 2 1-5 cents per pound,  or a little    under    half a    cent    por  pound per year, of his berry cropM'or  five years it is   estimated    that    the  $10,000 loan, to secure the "erection  of the-plant, will easily be    secured.  This calculation    is    based    upon  a  600,000 pound berry crop'   annually  from   this  district:    The  estimate  is  a reasonble    one    when    the    large  amount of    new    acreage    put    into  berry cultivation during the past two  years is taken into account." During  seven weeks in July and August, last  the B. C. IS. Rly alone    handled,/ISO  tons, or some 40 carloads of 2-1,000  pounds each of small fruits', betwesn  Chiliiwack and  New  Westminster.  This doesn't take into account.' tho  large quantity of berries that were  shipped direct to Prairie points as  well as to the coast via the Canadian  National route1 nor by the C.P.tt.  The United -Growers' meeting ,:it  which thirty growers were represented, also took action regarding the;  purchase of the St. Mungo Cold Storage plant at New Westminster by  the parent organization. The local  growers agreed as to the desirability  of securing the plant and decided to  unite with .the other district organizations in the purchase provided all  the organized . districts particpated  in the project. Abbotsford and other  centres having taken similiar actior.  the securing, of the' cold storage  plant by the parent society would  now be assured.

British Columbia Teh phone Company  5 i  . i  SERVICE  STATION  DANGER OF REPETITION  Fruit growers of this province  have it on the authority of Markets  Commissioner Grant who knows  more about prairie, fruit and product!  markets than' pos~s'ibly ' any other  British Columbian, that next year  holds forth prospects of ho better  market-conditions than now prevail  unless the growers themselves undertake many changes. This statement by such.a man should be given  every consideration, for another season like the present would drive half  our growers from the land.  The necessary changes to which  the'Commissioner refers begins with  the growers' organizations." It is  plain that this is the case. It cannot  be said that fruit markeTs are unsatisfactory merely because there is" a  large crop. The crux of the situation is that ^our growers should be  organized into one body capable of  handling any size of a crop, large or  small, to the best advantage, and at  the present time they are not so organized.  It is more' or less surprising that  growers such as we have, here ii������  British Columbia should be slow to  see the necessity of unity and if the'  present difficulty circumstances' has  the effect of driving them together,  momentary losses will never be regretted'.' There is but one goal  which to aim at this time; it is  organization which will embrace  less than eighty per cent, of the  terior growers which will marker,  their entire output on contracts of  not less' than 5 years' duration. Ana  such an organization must be formed  immediately or next year will see \  repetition of the present conditions.  -���������Farm and Home.  in your old car in part payment  for a 490 Chevrolet Special    Easy  ,   ' payments for'the balance.

The law of supply and demand,  particularly in the case of farm produce, is the influence, that controls  prices. The only way that advertising figures in the equation is the  effect, as the writer of the article  explains, is both socially and economically beneficial.  The fruit business, at certain-times  and in certain places, is hampered by  poor distribution. Where advertising is efficiently employc-d, it largely overcomes- these distribution  troubles. The citrus growers, for  instance, have been able to minimize  their distribution problems. The majority of fruit and vegetable growers,  however, have not been so fortunate.  One of the principal troubles with  distribution is that retail prices' at-.-,  not always allowed to fluctuate with  wholesale markets. Most fruits and  vegetables are short-seasoned products. Cherries', for example, are  out only four or five    weeks'.    Tht  wholesale market fluctuates widely,  according to the shipments arriving  daily. If a glut suddenly appears, the  price drops way down. The retail  price usually does not allow suit. It  remains fairly uniform through the  season. If the retail pi-ice did keep  pace with wholesale quotations, consumption would be infinitely stimulated. Many persons would thus  have an opportunity to get their fill  of cherries for the first time in their  lives. Cherries that are'now wasted  during the process' ofN distribution  would reach the cherry-hungry consumer.  In making this Trbservation Ave  are not indicting retailers as a whole.  Most of them probably do try to keep  their prices in proportion Lo wholesale markets, but they are too slow  in revising tjieir prices. And, furthermore, when Lhe market breaks  badly many-dealers' grow discouraged .and stop featuring the product at  Lhe very time it should be pushed to  the hardest.  When Lhe cantaloupe season opened this year many service grocers in  the vicinity of New York offered  [hem for thirty and thirty-five cents,  which w.is a fair price. Soon, how-  over, the, market was glutted. At  one tinm cantaloupes were practically being given away on the New  York market. Still, many grocers  continued the IhirLy-cent. price. Gradually they reduced their prices to  twenty-five, to fifteen and eventually to ton. In' the meantime, though,  many keen merchants had dropped  with the market to "two for fifteen,"  'five cents," and "six for a quarter."  Of course the first group, of grocers  did practically no business. They  let a. good portion of the cantalope  season go by without, making any  money out of it, and what is ��������� worse  they failed to render a desirable service to their customers. What is  still worse,' they impeded-cantaloupe  distribution, and to that extent hurt  the  farmer's  market.  The same thing is happening right  here with peaches. The market is  flooded. ~"A certain grocer we know  offered a bushel of fine peaches for  a,dollar. He sold. 300 bushels in a  week.    He made more money on   thu  Wm. .

Estimated expenditures  for 1923-24 wore given as $19,!)(5C-  -000, a reduction from lust year ' of  $1,102,000. Of this expenditure  $15,407,000 is' statutory or fixe)]  charges, so that the margin on which  tho saving of $1,1.00,000 was' made  was only about 20 per cenl. of the  whole, and even - then the fixed  charges under 'education and one or  other heads showed a jump of $330,-  000, making Lhe Lotal departmental  saving of $'1,500,000. Included in expenditure is an estimate, $500,000,  for r.G.E. deficit, indicating the  government does'- not contemplate  abandoning Lhe'service. No reference was made by the minister to  effecting economies of operation  ���������which have been suggested to reduce this railway deficit.  Dealing w'ith revenue and expenditure, Hon. Mr. Hart said that, the total revenue taken Lo account for the  last fiscal year was $18;882,231, "an  amount $1,871,795 greater than the  estimates. The revenue collected  through Lhe department of i'inanco  was\$C64,5,00 above the sum expected. ' Among items of revenue  which exceeded the estimates were:  Income Lax by $91.0,800; timber revenue by $L24,000; wale'r rentals  and fees by $29,000; motor licence  fees by $52,000; interest by $343,-  000, and miscellaneous roceipLs by  $288,000.  The New .Westminster bridge toils  were-$12,000. larger than -anticiatcd..  On the olhor hand >the liquor revenue did not come up to" expectations  by $1,100,000. Land" sales were short  $138,000; succession duties' $136,-  000; wild-coal and timber land sales  $282,000, personal property tax  $234,000. Poll tax recipts fell short  bv $67,000 and the amusement tax  by   $32,000.  The total expenditures for the  year were $17,430,486 on current ac  count' and $3,230,G97 on capital account' chargeable to income, or a total of $20,673,183. Practically every  department of Lhe government service conducted its operations below  the amount estimated, to an aggregate of $450,000, he explained. On  the other hand, the charges on account of the public debt incurred, in  connection with the flotation made  during the year required some $722,-  000 more than was originally estimated.  Referring to the statement of receipts and expenditures for the first  six months of the current fiscal year,  Hon. Mr. Hart, said that up to Sept.  30 ther# had been collected $9,90'-:,-  952, out of an estimated revenue of  $19,045,815. It should be noted, It3  said, that the bulk of the motor license foes' did not come in until after the new year. Also the chare of  liquor'profits for six months liad no;:  been taken into account at that date.  The expenditure on current account for the six months was $7,-  479,534 out of an estimated expenditure for twelve months of' $17,779.-  892 and the expenditure oh capital  account out of income was $1,60S.-  31(1 as against an estimate of $3,-  349,165 for Lhe twelve months, or a  total expenditure chargeable to revenue for six months of $9,087,850  out of.an estimated expenditure for  the year of $21,129,057, or approximately 4 0 per cent. /  Estimated expenditures for the  year 1923-24 call for the appropriation on current account of $17,200,-  452-, and on capital account out nf  Income of $2,705,847, or an estimated lotal outlay of $19,9(30,299, In  thisi connection Mr. Hart said that  .';11 departments showed . reductions  with the exception of education, agriculture, lands and railways. The increase for education over the cut-  rent year was $258,780, hut as- per  capita grants   to    municipalities,  .teachers', salaries in assisted schools  and inspection, had -increased by  $319,000 over the present year,  there was a '-smaller, expenditure .In  all other branches of that department.

The increase in uncontrollable ex  penditure in connection with education, and $13,000 in connedtlon with  Lhe provincial police, makes a total  increase of $332,0OQ^ over the current year for these uncontrollable  services, so Lhal the net. saving' in departmental administration ovwr tlie  current year-is approximately $1,-  500,000.'       ,;  Of the opproximate total of $20,-  000,000 for expenditure in 1923-2 4,  it is estimated tliat there will be required' for public debt $3,793,133;  legislation, $12,000; department of  agriculture. $383,750;- department ot  attorney-general, ' $1,663,551; department of education, $3,755,362;  finance, $895,300; fisheries,, $18,--  090;. industries, $13,520;, labor,  $100;J62; lands, $1,463,247; mines.  $253,29 6; provincial secretary, $2,-  055,899; public works, .$2,739*182:  railways,  $78,660.

Education'should not only have an  elevating influence, but also o  broadening influence, developing a  better and nobler type of manhood,  and a, more intelligent and useful  useful citizenship. Thus it will lead  us away from the chaotic conditions  manifest in some parts of Europe today, and direct us in the more sane  and, stable government of ourselves  that will conduce" to the betterment  of. social conditions throughout the  world.

Journal forsees a. price cutting war among, the manufacturers  of the smaller types of automobiles  as a result of the reductions in the  prices of Ford cars, announced recently. "The Ford price reduction is  looked upon in many quarters in  New York as another step in the  survival of-the fittest in the automobile industry," the paper says.  It. is practically certain that both  tho Star and .Gray cars * will be reduced tu the Ford level, the Journal  adds. These cars are not yet in the  hands of the United States public in  any quantity/but have'been sold extensively in several Canadian cities.  While other manufacturers of cars;  in the low-priced field have always'  maintained that they did not actually compete with Ford, the pap"er  points out, each time that Ford had  mrifVoja price reduction other producers in the low-priced group have followed suit. A prominent motor executive is quoted as saying: "Several  big producers who have reduced  since last mid-winter will probably  be compelled to make reductions  soon." :  MANY MILES OF PAVED ROAD  Angry Diner.

There are now 1,000 miles of permanent paved roadways in Canada,  or sufficient mileage to extend one-  third of the distance between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, according  to A. W. Campbell, Dominion Highways Commissioner. Activity . in  road-making has been general  throughout the entire Dominion this  year, aud on a larger scale than  ever before. The total expenditure  will be the largest of any year, and  for the same amount of expenditure  as in 1920, the amount of completed  work will be fully 30 per cent, greater, owing to decreases in the prices  of material and labor. Organizations in the various provinces have  been completed, the development  has been consistent and uniform in  all provinces, and, as a consequence,  about,$15,000,000 will be spent on  Federal-aided roads this year,, of  which $6,000,000 will come out of  the Dominion treasury.  _ In addition to this outlay, there  are large expenditures made by.the  provinces and counties on roads not  receiving Federal  *     assistance,  amountng to about $26,000,000 this  year, bringing the total outlay on  roads in Canada this year up to  nearly $40,000,000.  VICTORIA, Nov. 17.���������Defense of  the government's present system of  agricultural credits as the "only sate  md sane ont.j to follow," was mada  by Hon. E. D. Barrow, minister of  .ig~ricultrure, at the meeting of , the  Legislature, recently when- the  advisory, board of the farmers'.'institutes and legislative^ committee of  the United Farmers of British Columbia jointly set forth their requests  in the interests of the farmers of the  province.  Tha request of the farmers' representatives that, the Land ,. Settlement  Board extend its credit loan 6ysem  to cover farmers and fruit growers  who are already established on the  land, as provided for in the act, met  wi.th no encouragement from the  minister of agriculture, but he did  approve of a - further request, that  the money paid back by farmers to  whom it was' loaned should be available for reloaning.  Speakers pointed out that farmers who, had been in the industry for  years were' finding it difficult to  meet their obligations at the present  time but that the government,' under  its present policy, would not loan  money to others than hew entrants  into the agricultural field in British  Columbia. They thought that if  ample security was offered ' the government should assist the establish;  ed farmers in meeting obligations.  The chairman asked if this policy  would not have the effect of leading  to loan companies tightening the-  pressure on those farmers who owed  them money, as they would be assured that the provincial authorities  would pay the bills.  , Mr. Appleton of Okanagan remarked that another season like the  last would lead the fruitgrowers into'  mixed farming.  ".That would be .an undisguised  blessing," replied- Mr.  MacDonald.  Mr. Barrow went into a ��������� lengthy  review of the loan system under the  .Land Settlement Act.

Professor  Lloyd, as judge of the Utiliity  classes staled that he was amazed at  Lhe fine condition of birds exhibited  for this time of year and also w;is'  surprised'at the-high quality of the  birds. In judging (apart from the  judge,"? instinct,) - quality of eye,  smoothness of body, silkiness and  .tightness of feathers and clearness  of leg were among some of the important things taken into consideration.  It was his opinion that exhibitions  encourage breeders to bring out  ���������their best, which also enables us. Lb  choose better .breeders. Very eyi:  dent and important benefit was' often  deprived from the keen discussions  which generally took place after the  judging of. the various classes.  Professor Lloyd stated that Canada was the only. , country, in .the  world to give inspection to trap neat  records and that he considered that  more advertising was necessary to  the success of the breeding.

Mr. Ruttledge, president of the B.  C. Poultrymens' Co-operative. Exchange, took marketing as his subject, and showed the wonderful export market awaiting' the poultry,  produce. He stated that "without  bearing any of the expense, men who  were not members of the association  were depriving benefit from the exchange, and in order .to continue-the  work a larger and better co-operation on the part of the poultrymen of  B. C was essential.  The resignation of the present  manager of the Exchange has been  received to take effect the first -������f  the year, new premises are also needed and while many members thought  it was a good time to close up the exchange, it lies entirely with the members to say if it will continue. In  order to secure a new manager, a  larger' salary would be necessary,  which meant more members and  more support. -The main questh-h  Lo Lhe poultrymen of B. C. is, organization or not?

The Star.vPlaycr  Practically every art of the game  such as passing, shootng, handling  rones self while dribbling, pivoting,  dodging, jumping and starting, must  be well executed in "offensive formations. One slip-up or one act of indecision is likely to make the whole  formation' useless; ,'Strong offensive  play always comes as' the result of  combined efforts. . One star, or a  team composed wholly of stars' can  not accomplish the " greatest results  if their efforts are individual. Higli-  ly developed team play, with formations built around a,* star player, will  work out exceptionally- well.   -  Successful offensive play requires  the working of the ball down the  floor through the opponent's defence  by a series of passes or dribbles so as  to secure a point of vantage for  shooting. Failure to; start an offensive as soon as the ball is secured is  usually due to the team-mates not  coming around in front to receive a  pass and allowing the man -with the  ball to advance his position. Someone  should always be in an advanced position to receive a pass, but tlie  others should get in' motion in case  he is covered.  There are times when close guarding' prevents such movements and  back-passing must be resorted to.  Under this condition passing is  good basketball. Usually the 'ita-  tionary or back guard is uncovered  and in excellent position to receive a  pass, when the play is blocked near  the centre of the court. The running  guard should be on the look-out for  back passes.  ;  The style of offence which a team  is using can often be judged by the  style of passing used. Many teams  resort wholly to a variety of long  passes endeavoring at" all times to  have the ball beat their opponent to  the basket We have noticed that,  this is not effective unless developed very highly.  A dribbling game effects the same  style of play, while the short-passing  game is usually played with the object of creating an opening near the  basket for an incoming player to receive a pass and shoot.

Though the long pass may reach  the centre, and the forwards to be on  hand to receive the pass out, still  every man might be covered and unable to shoot. Sliort, snappy passing  around the basket will aid in getting a man uncovered.jUnder such circumstance's, but it means that every  man must be on the move.  Players may be drilled in offensive  formatons wth specific starting  points during practise but experience  has. taught conditions as outlined in  practise rarely occur in games. However, the drill work is exceedingly,  valuable, as it forms good basketball  habits and also wakens within, the  player a recognition of the possibilities for the start of team play.  The tip-off at centre is practically  the only formation where specitb  starting places can be set. It must  be remembered that forwards and  guards must be constantly on the  move to obtain advantage of position.  A ball held out of bounds, a held  ball, and the line-up for a free throw  all hold splendid possibilities for the  start of an offensive formation. If  the players have been drilled in such  formations team-play will result In a  game. It can not be expected tliat  formations will work out as specifically planned, but a start or an. attempt to do so will eliminate loss of  time and  indecision.  A team should master its selection  of plays exceedingly well and not try  to acquire a large number of half-  learned plays. This end can be accomplished by starting with a very  few plays and gradually perfecting  others as the season progresses.  Plays should remain as' simple as  possible for the fewer, the passes, the  more likelihood of completion.  LEONARD  BOXES  AT  NEW   A\*EST>ONSTE^  On Sautrday, Nov. 11th, Jack  Leonard, our fighting Scot, and four  of his supporters, journed by car ������o  the Drill Hall in New Westminster,  where Jack met Bob" Mackie ih a  three round exhibition. There Was a  very large gathering of Veterans and  others present who were anxious.rc  see Mackie display his wares, hound  one was spent In feeling out and.it'  did not take Leonard long.to size up  his opponent. The round was about  an even break with Leonard easing,  up. Round two started with Mackie'  on the aggressive urged by his supporters,, but Leonard was there every  time and he took and blocked all  Mackie had to offer wth no trouble-;  In round three and final, Leonard  atepped fast and Mackie was a very  busy boy trying to stop them. There  was no doubt about the result-had  there been a decision and be it said  of Leonard that he showed a fine display of generalship.  Fans of Mission Cits are very anxious to see the game start here again,  and it is thought that a good card  would take well.
