About 40 orchardists were out on  Monday afternoon for a special meeting  of the local branch of the B.C.F.G.A.,  called for the purpose of electing a  delegate and director to the annual  meeting at Kelowna later in the month,  as well as to approve, or otherwise deal  with resolutions to come before the big  growers meeting. "*    ���������  On motion the chair was taken by Wi.  J. Truscott^ with C. B. Twigg acting as  secretary. After the minutes of the  last annual meeting were disposed of, W.  G. Littlejohn, retiring director, submitted a report on activities of the past year,  which showed that six meetings of one  sort and another had been held, $15 net-t  revenu- collected, and expense of about  $24.50 incurred, leaving a deficit of  $9.50. For 1931 59 members have been  enrolled.  In connection with re-election as director Mr. Littlejohn ir.ads it quite clear  he had no intention of representing the  district before the agricultural committee  of the legislature, unless expenses to  and at the capital were forthcoming, and  this was taken care of by naming a  committee of seven to not only arrange  financial matters but also.agree on   a  plan of action for the Iocs! representatives both at Kelowna and Victoria.  ThiB committee will consist of. one representative from each of the four selling  agencies, Farmers' Institute, along with  Col. Lister, M.P.P., and Mr. Littlejohn  e?-offic?o.r The .committee is called to  meet oh Monday at the town hall; On  a ballot in which H. Young and D.  Bradley were contestants for the position of delegate, the latter was elected.  The sturdiest discussion of the after ���������  noon came when endorsation was  sought for a ��������� resolution sponsored by  Pentieton, expressing approval of central  selling, and asking for the preparation of  the necessary legislative bill, and then  the plebisite. As Valley growers at the  Black meeting on the 19th had voted  against this policy there was nothing to  do but reject it, with some favoring a  rearrangement of the resolution so that  the Littlejohn resolution, as passed at  tne Black meeting, could be brought up  at Kelowna.  Col Fred Lister, M.P.P., who took  quite an active part in proceedings, put  the quietus o j any such move by pointing out that the big meeting at Kelowna  would undoubtedly kill off the special  consideration asked by Creston, and  word of the "killing" would get to the  legislature, and Creston would be out of  luck when any consideration of the sort  was asked for when the bill.was being;  finally drafted at Victoria.  The local member in very practical  terms pointed out to those present the  need of having a couple of live wires at  the capital when the bill was being gone  into by the committee of agriculture.  Col. Lister pointed out that this  committee, of which he is likely to  be chairman, In framing a bill could only  take cognizance of fnets and figures and  nrguments presented during the sittings  of the committee, and that if Creston  Valley wanted thc Li _-!<?joi.n resolution,  as passed at the Black meeting, to get  considoratleu it would be necessary to  have it very thoroughly elaborated be-,  fore tho committee at Victoria.  Tho meeting gave endorastion to n  number of resolution., mihmitted by other  B.C.F.G.A. 1 reals, but declined with  thanks to have anything to do with ono  asking for more elaborate market lottors.  It w.ii. generally Jolt these wero of Httlo  real value and would be absolutely use-  loan in case of central selling.  Tho meeting in the beat of humor ro-  Xuacd to favorably aonaider tho resolution aaktng that  central   selling becomo  offoctI vo on a 00 por cont vote of tho  wholo province,, that all oporatora of two  or mono acres voto, nnd that tho now  plan stand for four years.

Discounts Russian Menace  He  TRADE-MARK REG.   _.       _ a.    i.a-_  mr tteen^   at,   lxic  present time, bulks larger in tbe eyes of tbe people of  Canada, in the east as well as in the west, than ever before. The word  "wheat" is on everybody's tongue; it is the outstanding subject discussed  by railway executives, bank presidents in their annual statements, manufacturers, wholesalers, statesmen and politicians great and small. If neve*  before, the Canadian people bave now awakened to the fact that wheat is the  most potent factor iii the -eo-iii-iereiai, economic, financial life of this Dominion; that it is the country's very life blood upon the flow of which its prosperity, if, indeed; not its present existence depends.  The industries of Eastern Canada languish because western agriculture  is in difficulty, severe difficulty. The east is beginning to remember, what  perhaps it had forgotten, that in years past when its cities and towns were  growing- in population and wealth, when its factories were busy and working  overtime, when new industries were being established and large additions to  plant made to existing ones, were the years in which western Canada was  prosperous. It was the enormous new and increasing purchasing power  of the west that made eastern industry hum.  Now that western wheat is in the doldrums, a drug on the world's markets, which it is impossible to sell at a price that will even cover the costs  of production, not io moation _~-y profit to the producer, the whole country  is sucrering. This condition cannot long continue; it must change, and because this is so,���������because a way out must be found, and therefore will be  found,���������western farmers can entertain hope3 for tbe future.  "Whatever happens to Canadian-grown wheat on the market, it still  retains its pre-eminent quality. It remains the finest wheat in the world, and  because this is so the present situation is all tbe more tragic. The outstanding quality and pre-eminence of western Canada's wheat was again  demonstrated this year when once again thc world's championship was won  by an Alberta farmer.  It is twenty years since the wheat championship competition was inaugurated, and during those twenty years the three prairie provinces of  Canada have carried off the championship no less than sixteen times, Saskatchewan winning it ten times, Alberta five times, and Manitoba once. In  tbe other four years the honor went to one individual state across the line,  ���������Montana.  This is a wonderful record for western Canada. It speaks volumes not  onty for our climate and the fertility of our soil, but for the enterprise of our -1  farmers, their patience and skill. It has meant the use of good seed; it has  given an impulse to the art of scientific cultivation; it has meant millions  of dollars to hundreds of farmers whose names never appear in the prize-  winning class, but who have been encouraged to adopt and follow right  methods, and to sow only good, clean, registered seed in their fields.  It has added vigor to the fight against noxious weeds, insect pests, rust,  and other factors operating against the production of the highest quality  wheat. It has encouraged the scientists in their task of developing new and  better varieties, earlier ripening varieties, frost and rust resistant strains.  These things may, at the moment, seem of little account to hundreds of  farmers who are making a real struggle to meet their obligations and find  tlie necessaries of life for themselves and their families. But the fact remains that the industry of agriculture in western Canada rests on a solid  and enduring foundation; it is the superstructure involved in prosont production costs, transportation costs, marketing difficulties, general world conditions of over-production and loss of purchasing power wherein the trouble  cf today lies,     Those things can, must, and ultimately win be rectified.  Canadian     Investigator      Says  Thinks Soviets Are Sincere  Earnestness and sincerity are the  characteristic features of the Russian  people in the economic and social experiments they are making, says Dr.  A. G. LiOckhead, agricultural bacteriologist of the Dominion Government  Experimental Farm at Ottawa, following a visit to the Soviet Republic.  "The Russians firmly believed what  they are aiming at will give the  greatest good to the greatest number," he affirmed. "They believe  the rest ofrthe world will, of necessity, follow their methods."  Dr. LiOckhead was Canadian delegate to the second international congress of soil science at Leningrad and  Moscow. Every line of scientific research appears to be encouraged in  the Soviet, he says.  The recent unloading by Russia of  wheat, lumber and coal on world markets is essentially an effort to raise  credit, rather than a deliberate part  of a market-breaking scheme, Dr.  Lockhead opines. In this connection,  he believes the menace from the  TJ.S.S.R. is not at ..resent serious.  Ties Of Empire I  ���������^   Ideal Has Never Seen Stronger In tbe  Hearts Of the People  "It is unthinkable that we should  lose Canada and if the Dominion had  her way there would be little danger,"  declared Sir William-Crawford, presi-  .a-..*.    -.__   jl. .     -___a_aj __j _*___.    _j_   v ,__,3...^  deni- Ox -lu6 jruuiiOiLy uuu Ox j-uiiuOK,  England, which discussed the question; "Shall we lose Canada."       '  "At no time, in the history of our  country,'' said Sir William, "has.'the  ideal of empire been stronger in the  hearts of our people."  The meeting was addressed by P.  W. Field, his majesty's senior trade  commissioner in Canada and Newfoundland. Mr. Field said British  exporters must expect increasing  competition from Canadian producers  In many trades and he showed that  the United States exercised a 'great  influence oveii the Canadian market.  The Americans had established a  thousand factories in the Dominion  and, in the face of this strenuous  competition, only the most efficient  business methods by British firms  would enable Britain to remain ift  the field.  Mr. Field agreed that Canadian  tariff changes which,bad come into  operation since May would, undoubtedly, limit British business,  but he believed it was still possible  to obtain a large share of Canada's  import trade hy strengthening and  revising methods.  m  'BUCKLEYS*  Keep Douglas' Egyptian Liniment  handy.

Famous Sheep  Farmer  Leaves For England  William Darnbrough Has Been la  Saskatchewan Twenty-Six  Years  Famous throughout the American  continent as one of the Dominion's  leading sheep farmers and renowned  for his many victories in the grain  classes at Toronto Royal and Chicago  International shows, William Darnbrough, of Laura, Saskatchewan, has  given up his farming interest there  and left for his old home in Yorkshire,. England. Mr. Darnbrough will  return, however, for the World's  Grain Show to be held in Regina in  1932.  Coaming tc Saskatchewan in 1904  without any knowledge of farming,  Mr. Darnbrough quickly established  a farm second to none in the district and he attained prominence aa  a sheep breeder. Since the war he  has won an unbroken string of successes with his sheep and grain at  the biggest shows on the continent.

By applying new regulations governing- tha entry of commuters between, the Border Cities, and Detroit,  the United States authorities have  broken the spirit" of the three-year-  old agreement, and in such a manner as to d_-u-_Lnisii eonamucing fpom  15,573 in. the year 1927, to 3,600 in  December this year. The delegation  charged that the United States officials bad again launched "an organized and determined campa?gn  of debarrment," and as a result of  this onslaught additional Canadians  were every day being prohibited entry  into the United States for a period of  12 months.  To remedy such a condition of  things, the delegation asked the  prime minister to make representations through the Canadian legation at Washington for reinstatement Toy the United States Bureau of  Immigration of all those commuters  who have been debarred by technicalities.  A second suggestion is that Canada negotiate a treaty with the  United States which will clearly.define the rights of Canadian and  United States citizens in relation to  this problem.  The third recommendation to. the  prime minister suggested "that the  Dominion government in any case  rapidly develop its fiscal policy to  encourage the manufacture of goods  in Canada which are now produced  in the- United States, thus providing  additional employment in Canada."  The prime minister gave sympathetic hearing to the representations of tbe Border Cities men, promising: to take up tbe matter through  the Canadian charge d'affaires at  Washington.  Liberals Wis.

"No one, so fur's I know. But  ain't it possible that she wa'n't so  much upset by the .music, as she was  by knowin" that the music had upset  you?"  Nick stood stock still.  "Why���������it���������it    never    occurred    to  me!" he said.  "Well, if you was to ask my advice,  I'd say maybe you better think about  that side o' it. 'Tain't every man's got  a wife like Gay."  "I'll go you one better there, Uncle  Sim," said Nick heartily. "I'm the  only man in the world with a wife  like Gay. The Lord never made a double. But she needs a change. I've  known it for some time. Since Jancy,  Maxwell married and left,town Gay's  been lonely. I'd hoped our new neigh-  .bors would supply the want, hut she  and Mrs. Halliday don't seem to hit  It off very well."  "What ails Mrs. Halliday?" asked  Undo Sim; and Nick laughed at tho  old man's assumption that the fault  couldn't possibly be Gay's.  "Nothing, that I can- see.

"Seems like I've  heard o' such things sometimes havin'  effect. Well, here we be. You set that  ice cream in the coldest spot you can  find, Nick, arid 111 see to Sonny. 1  b'lieve I'm hungry. Didn't have time  for no proper breakfast before 1  started."  During the meal that followed (and  despite Uncle Sim's warning, Gay  had a batch of the corn muffins she  knew he liked), the question of the  visit to State Line was broached  again.  "You've got to go, dear," said Nick  firmly. "It'll do you a world of good,  and I'll come for Sundays. It will be  a wonderful excuse for me to get  away myself."  "Will you come this Sunday?"  asked Gay wistfully. She felt suddenly i_or__it;sic__ at leaving him at^all.  "It's Thursday now, my dear," Nick  answered, smiling, "and you can't get  off till tomorrow. I'll give you one  week of freedom from my company.  And you needn't worry about me,  Gay. I told Mrs. Halliday I was sending you away, and she suggested my  going with them on a trip some Sunday, so I'll be provided for."  "That's very kind of her," said Gay;  hut her voice was cold, and Nick,  rising-, went round the table to. kiss  her cheek.  "If you think," he said, 'If you  think for one minute that I prefer  an auto trip with the Hallidays, to a  Sunday at Uncle Sim's with you and  the kids, why you haven't the sense 1  L~ | give you credit for. But it was kind  of Mrs. Halliday to ask me. You must  be fair to her, Gay.. She just took  pity on me. She says Halliday's like  a lost soul when she's away."  "And then," said Uncle Sim, in a  tactful effort to clear the atmosphere,  "I suppose he sets him down and  writes one o' them cynical stories  that makes a man want to get out  his razor and cut his . throat t But  Nick's right,, dearie., you need a  change o' scene; and I need company  somethin' terrible. I got a good woman doin' for me now, and you won't  have to raise yer hand except to see  to the babies; and if I'm. not mistaken you'll find me some help there.

"I'll devour the left-overs," Nick  answered, as he rolled up his sleeves,  "and then patronize the village hash  house. But you'll have to kill, the fatted calf on Sundays, Uncle Sim. I  shall have the appetite of a wolf." .,  "Now don't you go an* get all het  up hurryin'," advised Simeon, as he  and Nick were departing for the heat  of Main Street. "We don't need, to  start any special time, and my old  woman used to aay nothin' tired her  out like rushin' round tryin* to get  somewheres on schedule. Just you go  slow an' easy like, and maybe I'll  have a surprise for you come supper  time."  "This seems to he a day of surprises," Gay answered.

Invention Will Be Invaluable In  Locating Trouble On Machinery  An electric ear with which engineers hope to reduce noise by setting  one sound to kill another sound has  been   demonstrated  publicly  for   the  fit-ai"    + -.fW������_k   V������4-      ___>. 4*+c-t-vt-_iry������  J-_.-La*?V*       a-_.JJ__.l-_-     ������*���������_.       JL    Xl^ViSWUlg.  This method of noise abatement  consists merely in causing two sound  waves to interfcte. A big obstacle  has been the human ear's inability to  separate complex noises sufficiently  for engineers to find out which one  to set against the other.  The electric ear, it was announced,  promises to overcome this handicap.  Weighing 60 pounds, the size of a  suitcase, its method of attaching to  and "listening" to a noisy machine  was demonstrated at the Westinghouse research .laboratories by J. P.  Foitz, Westinghouse inventor.  "In a somewhat different application it is also hoped that in the future this new portable ear may be  used as an advanced fault-finder for  airplane motors and propellers," said  Foltz.

British Government Gives a Preference To Tenders From Empire  It is the practice, of British government departments, in the case of contracts, to give a preference to tenders from the dominions and colonies,,  as compared with tenders from foreign countries, but only within reasonable limits^ This was the reply  of the financial secretary to the treasury, F. W. Pethwick-Lawrence, to a  questioner in the British House of  Commons, who asked whether any  preference was exercised in favor of  supplies from the Empire and Overseas possessions, even where such  supplies were not the cheapest available.
