A   now   angle   to   tlie
acuto  lack of housing accommodation
in the city was pointed out  by Dr. F\
T.   Underbill,   city   medical   oliicer,   to
City   Hall  ofliciaLs  on   Saturday.      He
declared the lack of houses to accommodate   the   increasing   population   of
the city was becoming such a serious
question that it was becoming a menace to public health, owing to the congestion   that  existed  in   many  houses
where   two   and   three   families   were
living in a building that in many cases
was only intended to house one small
family.    So many soldiers are retiirn:
ing home and  forming reunions  with
their families now and were unable to
get  separate    houses     still,   that   the
"doubling up" process that took place
during the war years was now turned
into  absolute  congestion.     He  hinted
that if matters got much worse in this

NEW WESTMINSTER—To a representative gathering of civic and municipal   officials   of   Greater   Vancouver,
held in the City Hall last Friday, announcement   was   made  by   President
D. B. Hanna and General Manager i\I.
H. McLeod of the Canadian National
Railways, that    a    new    branch  line
would   be   built   through   New' Westminster, down  the North Arm  of- the
PYaser to a point somewhere in South
Vancouver   from   where   the   Government line would operate a train service   to   connect  at  Port   Mann   with
the  National  Railway  main   line  system.    Further,   President  Hanna  pro-
mcroasingly j mjsed that WQrk woul(1  be started  on
■ the construction of this branch within
i a period of two weeks.
It   was   also   intimated   by   the  National Railway System heads that the
proposal  to extend  the line  from  the j
temporary terminus  in South Vancou-j
ver through  to  the  Kitsilano  reserve \
in  Vancouver    would    be  taken  into I
serious consideration just as  soon  as
the government engineers could make
a detailed survey of the situation and
see about   securing  the  right  of way.
It   was   also   promised   that   returned
soldiers   would   be   given   the   preference and employed as far as possible

THE MEANING OF CITY PLANNING  What is good city planning?    City  plans were once thought of simply as  schemes for beautification, principally  as    applied    in    elaborated     for    to  limited areas within.an existing city.  But city planning extends far beyond  this.    The plan or programme for advancement  should   have . for   its, first  consideration    the    further    advancement' and safeguarding of civic government itself.    It should then consider  the  development of • the. city's Industrie-*, the encouraging of the new industries   to   which   the -city   is   especially adapted and the working, conditions.    It should consider  the extension of the,city's scope of influence;  the matter of advertising to place the  city in a better position towards com-  .petition;   its   influence   in   regard   to  and fire protection, recreation, street  lighting, paving and planting, art and.  libraries—that these may be 'as good  in kind as the city can afford. All  this is city planning.  Some of the cities in Europe which  today lie in ruins had for fifty years  followed such plans as outlined. And I  it is just as certain as the sunrise to- j  morrow, that these cities will put into  practical practice more than ever the  real ethics of city planning when they  are   being    rebuilt—for,    rebuilt they  will be—most of them on a better and  more  beautiful,   symetrical and   practical scale than ever.  Soon there may be sent from .our  forests, foundries and works materials to rebuild these cities better than  ever. It is unthinkable that we who  contribute to this work shall not give  like consideration'to our own cities.

Vancouver  MUST WORK,TOGETHER  IN  FOREIGN  TRADE  It is diflicult to determine how general is  the feeling tliat bankers and  business men are not sufficiently supplementing each others' efforts in the  building   up  of   foreign   trade.      The  Record,   however,   has   heard   it   said  that while bankers   apparently  exert  real efforts and expend large amounts  in  developing foreign  service  departments   and  branches,   yet  collections  and acceptances calling for careful attention are handled most perfunctorily  —and on the other hand, bankers come  back with the statement that there is  gross   ignorance   of   foreign   business  methods  exhibited   by  importers, and  exporters.  The trouble clearly is the failure to  understand the technique of foreign  trade and some one in the business  office should be delegated to learn this  technique.' The banks have the data  and will be glad to furnish it, but the  business man delegated to this,.work  will have to absorb it and get it  clearly in mind. The banks cannot  divine what question will arise in the  mind of the manufacturer who is arr  ranging an export shipment, but if  the manufacturer will but ask the right  sort of question, the bank with a foreign department worthy of the title  will find a sufficient answer.
