Reduce Armies Aa Well As Navies  Th������ outstand  assembling- of the  invitation of the British Government to the other Great Powers, to devise  ways and means of securing a substantial lessening- of the burden borne by  all In mainta'ning- huge navies, while at the same time, they are mutually  pledged the one to the other and to all not to resort to war. The conference  opens with every prospect of success attending- its deliberations, and particularly so in view of the fine understanding already reached "between Great  Britain and the United States. The hopes and desires of all mankind ere  ���������wrapped up in its success.  If an accord can be reached in regard to questions of naval strength the  next stcr should, and undoubtedly? will he, an endeavor to arrive at an  agreement for the reduction of armies and .other forms of land armament,  M'Htary preparedness, so called, as district from naval establishments,  imposes an even heavier burden on raost'nations. Nevertheless^ the question.  cf the size of armies seems to present the more difficult problem.  For example, here in Canada -we can understand ���������why the United States  witk the Atlantic, and Pacific, and Gulf of Mex4co bounding it on three sides,  with its island possessions of the Pfa53ipp3n.es,, Porto Rico, etc.,,and its ocean  borne trade, should feel the necessity of a strong navy, hut the majority -of  our people are at a lass to understand their need of a larg-e standing array  end an. extensive Xational Guard or militia.  Following*, as it did, the cordial reception tendered Premier Ramsay  MacDonald by President Hoover, and the spontaneous acceptance of the  invitation to the naval conference in London, Mr. Hoover's Armistice Tj&y  speech came as something of a shock in that he laid great stress,���������many  people believe too much stress,���������on the old gospel of preparedness and particularly as it applied to the United States. -Nor is this feeling allayed ia  President Hoover's first budget message to Congress, -wherein he aslts for  Looldng To the Future  New.

The directors of SSmpire State, lae.,  of which former Governor Smith is  president, have come to the conclusion, he said, that in a comparatively  short time there would be a trans-  Atlantic, trans-Pacific and transconti-  ztnd possibly a  Ung event of th's opening month of the new year !a the [ "������������������ai airsmp lines,  >  i������  naval  reduction  conference  in  London.

Announcement of the'- installation, of  the hew circuit was made recently by  the telegraph departraeut of the system. The first broadcast to go over  the new section, took place on Thursday, December 19, when the Hart  House Sir'ng Quartet played before  the microphone at Toronto. Up to the  present, the Hocldss have been a barrier against consistently good reception of eastern radio broadcasts, but  now Pacific coast listeners will be  able to hear the best concerts of the  Ocii6~  CcHuXJSS Ojt  Coua.ua.

The vast radio network is an engineering feat which keeps pace with the  progress of both Canada and the National system. The radio department  will broadcast three hours weeklv  over the Atlantic-Pacific network and  plans are underway for several commercial programmes to reach the  coast.

L  ^President Hoover's statement mat suiacieiiu xorces muse oe zaaisicaiiieci  to prevent "the foot of the invader landing on our sacred soil," sounded like  a sop to the militarists. There does not appear to be the vaguest poss'bility  that any power or combination of powers contemplates any such fantastic  step or that it is ever likely to happen. Canada and Mexico are the only two  countries whose territory .ia contiguous to the United States, and this  Dominion's permanent force of approximately 3,000 does not constitute a  threat, nor has the U.S. anything to fear from Mexico. Why, then, such huge  army expenditures ?  President Hoover has taken a fine stand on naval reductions and also on  the Kellogg anti-war pact, but if real progress is to be made towards world  disarmament an even greater measure -of enthusiasm, must be displayed, for  reduction in land forces. In his address he referred to the fact that there are  ten million men under arms in Europe, vastly more than in 1914=. But,  Instead of attempting to formulate some plan whereby a reduction in these  immense forces could be effected, Mr. Hoover seemed chiefly concerned in  having the United States build up a bigger army to avoid invasion by these.  overseas millions.  Real friends of peace would have liked to hear President Hoover Issue  an urgent call to European countries to immed'ately start cutting down their  armies, and, instead of advocating a still larger army for his country, he.  could safely have added weight to his plea by favoring a reduction, rather  than an increase, in the United States land forces. The war-wearied peoples  in all countries would have welcomed such a lead from the United" States.  Apparently the lesson that preparedness for war inevitably leads to war  has not yet been sufficiently impressed upon the minds of the people. An  enormous percentage of tho four billions of dollars which Mr. Hoover aaks  Congress to provide in its next budget, is to cover tho costs of former wars  and to "prepare" for possible future ones. In 1028 the United States spent  sixty cents out of every dollar on account of war financing. Another twenty  cents went to the army and navy, making a total of eighty cents out of  every dollar collected in federal, taxes for military���������and, in an economic  sense, unproductive���������purposes.  In that same year In Canada, a pacific nation, spending far less than other  countries on war preparation and,debts incurred by war, heavy aa the latter  are, 45Vi cents out of every dollar expended by tho Government was attributable to war.

The ship  was bound for Vigo, nearby. ; '  At 1 a.m. fishermen on shore saw  its first rocket of distress. Although  a heavy fog prevailed, and the storm  was so severe that fishing smacks in  the inner harbor were damaged, the  fishermen struggled to reach the battered vessel. After two hours they  .approached within 700 yards of the  doomed steamer, but could not get  closer.  The stricken vessel sank with all  hands. Later four ������bod'es were  washed ashore, all wearing life-preservers marked "Asland." Letters and  other documents cast up by the waves  indicated the ship carried a crew of  2*4. No survivors -were found.  Lloyd's which rece'ved an account  of the shipwreck, believed the ship's  name to be "Aslaug" instead of "As-  land." The 'Aslaug" was listed as of  990 tons.

Vancouver, B.C.,  December 23, 1929.  CHAS. MTJRRELL.  ������ Creston Farmers' Institute,  Creston, B.C.  Dear Sir,  In reply to your letter of the 18th inst.  just received, the B.C. Growers and  Shippers' Federation is an amalgamation  of snippers. Although called a Growers.  and Shippers Federation It is, for the  present at least, a Shippers' Federation,  There is no membership fee. The chairman 61 the board is E. M. Carruthers,  wh o might give you more specific information if you cared to write him.  The Growers and Shippsrs' Federation  represents both the Associated Growem  and the Independents (Sales Service).  A resolution was passed at a directors'  meeting; of this Association last January  requesting that the B,C.F.G.A. be given  power to appoint 50 per cent, of the vot-1  mg power on the board of directors of  the Growers and Shippers' Federation,  hut this request waa refused;  At our last executEvo meeting- the fol-  olution was passed, which is to br> brought in by the executive at the annual  convention in January:  "Whereas the Produce Marketing  Act was enacted for the benefit of the  fruit and vegetable growers of tho  province. And "Whereas the constitution of tho Growers-and Shippers'  Federation does not provide for growers to have a voice in the selection of  any member or momfoors of the Committee of Direction, or in the disposition of their produce Therefore bo it  resolved that the B.CF.G'A. through  the executive committee have the Tight  of appointing 50 per eemt. of tho members of the Executive Committee of tho  Growers and Shippers* Federation .with  full voting power.  Trusting this will bo of Interest to you,  I am, M.APPLEBY.  Secretary B.C.F.G.A.  The best attended and most practical  session   of   the . Creston  branch  of  the  British Columbia Fruit Growers Association was the adjourned  meeting on Saturday afternoon,   which   attracted   the  attention of about 50 orchardiste, who on  the strength of resolutions submitted by  the resolutions committee selected at the  meetin6 of the week previovs, and some  recommendations sent along for en donation   from   the    B.C.F.G A,   executive,  agreed to.have their representative at the  convention    at  Vancouver this    month  support a resolution demanding that the  ��������� ��������� 1 B.C.F.G.A. appoint half the members of  the executive of the  Growers and Shippers' Federation, and another requesting  that freight rates on apples moving westward from  the  Kootenay for export be  equalized with the rates accorded  Oka-  Ti������������������������-n fruit..  The local committee submitted a resolution requesting authority be giveu the  B.C.F.G.A.* to appoint half the members  of the executive of the Growers and  Shippers' Federation, but it was tuxneTS  down mainly because it would lead to the  appointment of more officials to give  effect to the sentiment in this matter  from the various fruit growing sections.  The rejected local resolution, read:  Is the Produce Marketing Act having a  stabalizing effect on prices and distribution? '���������'������������������:���������':  Are the benefits, ii any, worth the expense incurred*?  Can a system be devised whereby the  Committee"; can fix. a price to the grower  instead of the shipper?  Is the Assbetsttd Growers functioning  in the best interests of its members?  Are the expenses of operation too  heavy?  Are overages being retained by the  shippers, ana it ss, to what extent?  ���������Are the Independent shippers paying  their growers more than the co-operative?  Are they more efficient in their methods?  Are they receiving an unreosonftble  amount in profits?  Where is the differential between what  the producer receives and what the consumer pays?  Can the differentia! be reduced? If so,  in what respects?  What are the effects on prices of undesirable varieties, low' grades, bulk shipments, etc., on the~maiket generally?  Are. and to what extent, secret rebates  being made by shippers, and what are the  methods used in obtaining these rebates,  if such there are?  Is Central Selling practicable?  How would It function?  What are its dangers?  If found desirable, could the powers of  the present Committee be extended to b  Central Selling Agency?

Contrvte Company  t  Our Best  at.  \  Wishing You All a  HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS  NEW YEAR  The contract calls for the supplying and layiag^bout six-\miles  of 21" and 18" concrete pipe. In  view of tlae haivy freight rate  from Vancouver it; was necessary  dto install a field--^manufacturing  plant. This is located on Arrow  Creeks near Go at> River.  The company has built a sand  and gravel plant onv the Goat  River where the sand and gravel  is washed and separated into sizes  and grades as reauired. This is  a very important part of the  manufacturing system as the material has to be igraded to suit the  pipe, for different -pressures that  occur in the pipe line. Also the  material must be clean and free  from injurious matter. Two systems of testing are made at short  pipes are put into another steam  room but during mild weather  they are put outside for about 10  days before being hauled away.  All pipe for a pressure line such.  as this are reinforced with. wire.  The wire is fabricated by a special machine designed for the purpose. It is woven spirally and  longitudally according to a mathematical chart to suit the pipe for  different pressures. The finished  products are' known as "cages91  and are placed inside the forms  as they-are'.being assembled.  To cover the joint of the pipe  where they meet a collar about 8"  wide is. made by the same process  as the pipe, also reinforced, and of  a size to allow for a space around  the pipe of about %. of an inch.  This space is filled with neat  cement made moist and driven  into place by special irons. This  is the "caulking" process and is  very important to insure a tight  joint. Before the caulking is done  one end of the pipe is polished  with graphite., this allows for a  I  r  raa B^^^Q^^^|i;il   nit 1 yi.itll  ma  uvivir  possible grade with a load of 3  of these 21" pipe. - ���������.  Next to the actual manufacture  of the pipe comes the laying. This  is being done, successfully, by a  crew of local men. it is largely  complicated through the fact that  a greater, part of the line is on a  hillside and through hollows,  known as syphons, which means  horizontal and vertical curves.  Special bevelled end pipe have to  be made to take care of these  bends. .  The testing of a concrete pipe  line is interesting and it is here  where concrete differs from most  other materials used in pressure  pipe lines. The first test is the  hardest; seepage will appear in  many places and may continue for  several days but except in the case  of a defective pipe this leakage  will', soon disappear. This seepage is caused by a slight shrinkage in the concrete during dry  weather.

The actual .manufacture of the  pipe seems a very��������� simple operar  tion indeed, arid to the lay-man  the results -would differ but little  from the common practice, namely,  that of pouring mixed concrete  into a mould set on end.  The method employed is known  as the Hume Centrifugal System,  an Australian patent for which a  royalty has to he paid.    There are  now factories all over the world  working under this system with  the  greatest ssaecess.   The B. C.  Uonerete ������jo. were the first on the  American   continent   to   use   the  system.    In  Vancouver they are  making pipe ranging in diameter  from 6" to 66".    The latter have  walls 7V2" thick and weigh over  4cYz tons each-  It  is  now  an   established fact  (that   while ���������- -water   is   absolutely  ueeessary for the making of concrete it is also known that the less  ivatejr Tised^the stronger; the concrete.    Only enough water should  be used to give the .mix a workable or plastic form.    When the  water dries out there aire spaces  left that makes the concrete porous.    This weakens the mass and  if under water pressure there will  be a leakage.   It will thus be seen  that pipe made by the old system  is   absolutely   against   the   best  principle  of  making  water-tight  and strong concrete for it is impossible to get rid of the water,  laitance   or   other   light   matter  injurious   to   concrete.    All   this  matter becomes part and parcel  of the pipe and must cause a fault.  "With the centrifugal system the  forms  or  moulds  are  placed  on  revolving rollers in a horizontal  position and driven at a variable  speed.    These moulds do not have  an  inside   casing  but  have  end  rings  with   fHangs   equal  to  the  thickness of the walls of the pipe.  As the moulds revolve the concrete  is shovelled in from both ends as  quickly as  possible,   10  , or   12  moulds may be revolving oil one  machine at the same time, and the  filling is only a matter of a few  minutest.

CHAPTER XXVIII.  Grace realized that on many occasions when AS was s'lent he -was  thinking of his beloved son and wondering how Junior was faring. It was  just about a year now since Molly  had so cruelly taken him from Al and  rushed off to Europe with John Perry.  !'No word had reached New York concerning the elopers since that one  message announcing that Molly was  suing for divorce. This strange silence in itself was ominous to Grace.  She knew that Al's life was inextricably bound up in Junior's and because  of that Molly,had a hold on him.  Perhaps Al sensed this feeling of  instability in Grace. At any rate,  he broached-the subject near to her  "heart.---- - ���������-<������������������  "Grace, you and I are going to be  married one of these days?"

This complete submersion  of her character to the whims and  demands of Perry astonished. even  Molly herself. Never had she believed  it poss'ble for her to forget herself so  completely in thoughts of another  person,    -  The coiEple travelled from one resort to another, spending money lavishly, but always circumspectly because the divorce hsd not yet bees-  granted. When^they gambled at Deas*-  viile"*orrMonte' Carlo It was Molly's-  money that was used, for it turned-  out that John Perry did hot have so|  much after all. He had earned the:  reputation of having a fortune simpEy  because of his lavish spending on  Broadway.  But during this period the relationship between-Molly and John changed  perceptibly. It was John who began  to show signs of boredom and Molly  who became more infatuated. One day  when she was moody he did not forgive her as Al had always done. He  simply went away and stayed a few  days. When he returned In response  to her begging letters she loved hint  more madly than ever.  Then came the day when Persy.  said, "Molly, I wish you wouldn't have  that child around so much. He interferes w'th our plans and he bothers  me terribly."  Molly's voice trembled as she am-  Bwered, "Eut I love him, John? What  can I do with him?"  "Send him away," insisted Perry  harshly, "Send him to a nursing  home, or board him ������iut with some  family."  Molly gazed long into the handsome, irritated feajtures of the man  she loved. She realized she must do  nti he sold if she would hold him."  So little Junior was boarded out with  a French family. It happened to be a  family where he wasn't given good  care, so his usually tvosy cheeks bo-  cam o thin, and pale. He was terribly  lonely, too, and ho often orlcd for h'a  mother, his another who otuy came to  000 him onco a week now. Vaguely he  remembered his daddy back in America, the daddy who hud loved him so.  '��������� One day Molly realised that her'  money was dwindling with dangerous rapidity. John Perry-naked almost dally for leans, which he wasted  in. gamWng, nnd never suggested  paying back, Molly wa������ afraid to.cal|^  htm to account, afraid even to stop  glvEng hfiin money. With u deadly p.afn j  in hor heart she sensed, that she was j  on tho verge of losing him. If she said  a word ho might up und leave hor at  a moment's notice, but If she kept'  flllont ho would probably marry her,  And the divorce wan duo any day  now,  Shrewd John Ferry played pitllnHoly  on Molly's* infatuation for him, as pliti-  iossly ������a who had.once used Al's love  became rnoro " uncertain,   with   eniaU  to further her ambitions. His temper  passing- day and his demands for  large sums of money more insistent.  Then came thei day when Molly re-  calved ,aew2^pf..the divorce.' She was  .w^d''w^&'.^!happiness as she flung her  arms about John Perry's neck. ^  "'Now,-.

Then fury broke loose in Molly.  "You cheating . dogE" She backed  away from him, picked up a vase  from a table, and sent it straight toward his head. Perry dodged deftly,  smiling as the base smashed in fragments against the wall. With a nonchalant air he picked up his hat and  stick.  "Where are you going?" cried  Molly.  "I'm leaving. You'll never see me  again."  Moly cried all that night. Next  morning she received a telegram  telling her Junior was^ dangerously  ill!  . . . .
