The annual congregrational meeting of  Christ Church, Creaton, held in the  Parish Hall on January 14th, was well  attended. It was in charge of the  rector, Rev. T. Scott, with L. Littlejohn  acting as vestry clerk.  As the parish, was without a minister  for two or three months just' prior." to  midsummer, the reports submitted were  not quite as encouraging as in past  years, but since the arrival of the new  rector all branches of the church work  Jiaive been resumek with, the oldtime  vigor.  The- treasurer's report was submitted  by J. W. Hamilton, and showed all the  1931 obligations met .and a small credit  balance to the -good.

A total: of 171 ballots  out of some 195 available were  cast, included in which were three  spoiled ballots.  The biggest surprise of the day  was the splendid vote for McFarland who has only been a  resident of Greston for about two  years.

The retiring  president, Col. Mallandaine, was in the  chair. ���������  After all had done justice to an  excellent dinner the president submitted  his address, the feature of which was a  statement covering the fruit and  vegetable shipments, as well as the outgo of forest products during 1931, in  additioh to wbich some; consideradle  attention was paid to a review of 1931  activities generally in Creston Valley.  In presenting the fruit shipping figures  Col. Mallandaine called attention to the  fact that it was difficult to get exact information on the fruit output due to the  operation of so many trucks by residents  of Alberta, who make a trip or two during the seasod, and whose number and  tonnage handled^ it is impossible to  compute.  The figures indicated that in apples  and soft fruits* the 1931 crop had been  lighter than that of 1930, but in the line  of vegetables, notably tomatoes/there  was an increase shown. The outgo of  poles ha I been tip to 1930 standard, but  in lumber the production was not  ok a parVith other years, talring the  Valley sis a whole.

Heavy Fur Catch  Catch This Year Promises To Be Best  In Past Decade  The" fur catch in the north country  this year promises to be one of the  best in. the past decade. From early  reports received from, the far north  trappers will bring down heavy shipments of furs this spring.  The quality of the furs, a factor  that varies from year to year, promises to be high, north trappers claim,.  because of the climatic conditions  that have prevailed in the sub-Arctic  regions this year.  While the catch in the more civilized portions of the province 'Will be  only average, north of Churchill and  in the southern Indian Lake area the  catch nears the spectacular. Prices  for pelts this year are only average,  dealers advise, and the royalty and  heavy cost of bringing them into the  United States will prove a handicap  to disposal this spring it is feared.

Lesson: John 6.1-71.  . Devotional Reading: Psalm 34.3-11.  Canadians    Have   Deep    Interest  Situation In Manchuria  "We have not forgotten the lesson  which we learned in 1911 of what an  obscure crime in a Balkan state can  mean," jaid Hon. Vincent Massey,  former Canadian Minister to Washington, in addressing the Empire Club  on Manchurlon problems at Toronto.  "Canada needs no argument to show  the situation in Manchuria is one to  command her active interest."  He referred to tlie treaty of Washington in 1922, and the Paris peace  pact, and said Canada, with tho full  obligation of nationhood, would have  to decide for herself whether either  treaty had been infringed or violated.  Any trade advantage accruing to  Canada through China's boycott of  Jujmn would be moro than offset by  loss of trade with Japan.  India exported 55,000,000 pounds of  tea in -a recent month.  OH!

Cunard   and  Anchor  Line   Steialmc rs  Furnish Sea Voyages For Those  < On Holiday Bent  That the world and his wife are going to sea for their holidays more  than ever before is evident in the fact  that no less than fifty-six cruises  have been arranged for Cunard and  Anchor Lines steamers during the remainder of this winter, spring, and  summer. This does not Include the departure this week from New York of  the "Franconia" on her annual five-  month cruise of the world.  The Maritimes and the    St.    Lawrence will get a good share of this-  erulse   tourist  business,    for    twelve  cruises will   call  at  Canadian  ports  which will form their main attraction  for thousands of New Englanders expected on these short trips from New  York. Last summer    the    "Transylvania" made three experimental voyages to Quebec and Halifax from New  York,  with a 60-mile  cruise up the  Saguenay River.      She is the largest  vessel ever to navigate this famous  waterway,   and  on each  voyage  she  was booked to capacity.      This summer and fall there will be six such  12%-day cruises, by this steamer and  her sister ship the "California" which  will- then make her first appearance  on' the St. Lawrence.    Other cruises  in which Canadian ports will be featured are three six-day cruises from  New York to Halifax and Bermuda  on the express "Mauretania," during  the    summer.        The    Anchor    liner  "Caledonia" will make a 9-day cruise  to Halifax,  on August  27th,  and on  October 20th, a, 10-day voyage will be  made to the same port by the "Transylvania."  Several short summer cruises on  express Cunarders and two Labor  Day week-end cruises by the "Transylvania," and the "Berengaria,"  largest Cunarder, are also scheduled  to call at Halifax. Elaborate arrangements for seeing Acadia are being  made for these passengers.  Short, inexpensive trips to the West  Indies continue to be> popular, their  success being indicative of the price  trends of today. A call at Miami has  been introdi: ^ed into the itinerary of  eight 9-day cruises to Havana and  Nassau by the "Caledonia," the visit  to the Florida playgrounds of the  wealthy proving a great attraction.  More leisurely visits to the West Indies will be made on three voyages  of the "California," and two on the  "Scythia," ranging from 12 to 23  days and visiting all the high spots  in tho islands as well as calls at  Panama and the South American  mainland.  Bermuda retains its hold on the  imagination of the cruise tourist public, the "California" and "Samaria,"  one of the 20,000-ton Cunarders, being listed to make Easter cruises  from New York of 9 and 8 days respectively.  Explanations and Comments  Jesus and tlie Multitude, verses 1-4.  ���������With His disciples Jesus crossed to  the eastern side of the Sea of Galilee  j (or the Sea of Tiberias, as it was also  called from-*he City of Tiberias which  Herod Antipas had built on the western shore of the lake in honour of  the Emperor Tiberias) and, climbing  the hillside sat down for a quiet conference with them.  The Testing ������������ PS_i!ips verses 5-7.  ���������When Jesus saw the crowd He  turned to Philip and asked him where  they were to buy bread for them.  Philip was a practical man of affairs  and he made a hasty calculation. Two  hundred shillings* worth of bread  would not supply even a little for  each one.  TCVT-X-t^lT-U-iR  To Assist Agriculture  1*1.--   ytu. ._,_.������___������._������.   ������_*������3~     <<nrnL--  -r-r^   __..__3  _._������������=  ^jva-igciiai.  auuEt,      iuia nc  saiu  to prove him; for He Himself knew  what He would do." The difficulty of  tha task tested Philip's faith. The  one thing necessary was that he  should turn the problem over to his  Master with full faith that He could  solve it, and should offer to help as  the humble instrument by whom the  people could be served.  The Lord's Supply, verses 8, 9.���������  Andrew, Peter's brother, then said  that there was a lad among them  who had five barley loaves and two  fishes, "but what are these among so  many?" he exclaimed. The emphasis is on the word "but." Andrew saw  the poverty of the visible supply; he  failed to see the richness of the invisible Power.  Tlie IVIiracie, verses 10-13.-���������At the  direction' of Jesus the people sat down  on the grass, about five thousand  men besides the women and children  Matthew 14.21. They sat in companies" of fifty, that the distribution  might be quickly made. Taking the  five barley loaves in His hands, Jesus"  offered thanks, probably repeating the  customary words, "Blessed art Thou,  Jehovsn our GrOu, x_.ing o* tne earth,  who causeth bread to come forth of  the earth."       .,        .  Then Jesus distributed the loaves  and fish till all were abundantly satisfied..  When all were satisfied Jesus bade  His disciples gather up'-..the. broken  pieces that were undistributed, that  nothing be lost. Those fragments filled twelve baskets. Probably each of  the Twelve had a provision basket  with him. The scantiness of the  source, five barley loaves, is again  mentioned to emphasize the greatness  of the miracle.  Quota  System Between Canada and "  Great Britain For Canadian  .-���������'���������''  Wheat    ;-    >: '  Establishment  of a  quota  system  between Canada  and" Great  Britain,  for Canadian  wheat,  was  visualized  as  one of the great hopes for Sas- -  katchewan agriculture in 1932 by J.-  D. MacFarlane, president of the Saskatchewan Agricultural Societies As--  jsociation,  who  presented  his  annual  report to an executive meeting of that-  association at the University of Saskatoon.  Mr. MacFarlane also said a change  in the styles of obtaining credit by  the countries of the world was essential to economic recovery, and hie- believed cancellation of war debts, to -  enable world buying power to improve, was necessary if 1932 was to-  be a better year than the past year.  Even adoption of these changes did"  not offer much hope for the present  year, Mr. MacFarlane believed, but he  thought they would tend to make next -  year more normal and would restore  agriculture to a place more nearly approaching its old position.  Dispensing of the high rates of interest paid by one country to another  would materially assist, he thought. -  He believed an international banking  committee oould render help in the  situation, functioning similarly to the  League of Nations, but dealing with  the financial obligations and requirements of the countries of the -world.  Each, country, under this system, -  would issue its/own currency, instead ~  ( _  of borrowing is New -_������rk or,London,.  England.   -....'...

Cleaning Units Needed  To Ensure Distribution Of Clean Seed  To Farmers  In order to cope with the cleaning  of seed grain for distribution to needy  farmers this spring between 400 and  500 travelling seed cleaning machines  will probably be necessary.  In addition to this, it is believed  by grain men that every privately  owned seed cleaning machine will  have to be utilized if seed grain is  to be properly cleaned in preparation for coming spring work.  Over 6,000,000 bushels seed wheat  and at least 2,000,000 bushels of seed  oats will be required for distribution  before spring, entailing an expenditure of approximately $9,000,000.  According to C. B. Daniel, manager of the Saskatchewan Relief Commission, the seed grain relief plan ln  Saskatchewan is a gigantic problem  and it is essential that a plan be put  into effect as soon as possible.  Definite steps toward adopting a  scheme whereby clean seed can bo  supplied to thc farmers of Saskatchewan through thc Saskatchewan Relief Commission arc being formulated,  it is learned unofficially, Thursday,  Jan.   14.

Jean, glancing enquiringly across  _at':Mrs. Craig, was startled at the  sudden change in lier face produced  by Lady Anne's simple announcement.  Tho sallow skin seemed to pale���������al-  E_w>St wither, like a cut flower that  needs water���������and the lips that had  been parted in a smile stiffened slow- +  ly Into their accustomed straight lino.  ������Of course"���������Mrs. Craig's voice  sounded flat and she swallowed once  or twice before she spoke���������.'that  must be it. I���������knew your father,  Miss Peterson."  To Jean, always sensitive to the  .emotional quality of the atmosphere,  It seemed as though some current of  hostility, of malevolence, leapt at her  -through the innocent-sounding speech:  "1 know your father." It was quite  ridiculous, of course, but the words  sounded almost like a threat.  She had no answer ready, and a  brief silence followed. Then Lady  Asane bridged the awkward moment  with some commonplace, "adroitly  steering the conversation into smoother -waters, and a few minutes later  Mrs. Craig rose to go. ' ��������� ���������������������������  "Til see you across the park,  Judith," volunteered Nick, and he and  Ms mother accompanied her out of  the room.  In the hall, Lady Anne detained her  visitor ah instant with a light haihd  ot_ her arm, while Nick foraged for  his own particular headgear amongst  the family assortment of hats and  oaps.  "Jean is a dear girl, Judith," she  said earnestly. "I want y-ou to be  friends with her.   Don't"���������pleadingly  Chapter xn.  A Sense Of Duty-  Jean was immensely puzzled at the  abrupt change which had occurred in  Mrs. Craig's manner inamediately upon hearing that she was the daughter  of Glyn Peterson, and, as soon as the  visitor had taken her departure, she  sought an explanation. -  "What on earth made Mrs. Craig  freeze up the instant my father's  name was mentioned? Did she hate  him for any rea__on?"  Tormarin looked across at her.       -  "No," he answered quietly. "She  didn't hate him. She loved hint."  Jean stared at him in frank astonishment. She had never dreamed that  there had been any other woman than  Jacqueline in Glyn's life.  "Mrs. Craig���������and my fattier ?" she  exclaimed incredulously.  "She wasn't Mrs. Craig in those  days.   She was Judith Burke."  ���������"Well, but " persisted Jean, de-  I had'''.befej_r suffering .with rheumatism for about 2'f years, and about  this tLrae last yeaf-#a3 laid up for IO  T Wefelts^ '���������:���������;.

That's not"���������  drily���������"quite the effect you would expect love to produce!"  There was a curiously abstracted  look in Tormarin's eyes as he made  answer.  "Love is productive of very curious  effects on occasion. More particularly  when it is without hope of fulfilment,"  he added in a lower tone.  "Well, I suppose my father couldn't  help not falling in love with Mrs.  Craig," protested Jean with some  warmth. "Nor could he have prevented her caring for him. And it's certainly illogical of her to feel any resentment towards me on that score. I  had nothing to do with-it."  .-. "Love and logic have precious little  to say to each other, as a rule," replied Tormarin grimly. "To Judith,  you're the child of the woman who  stole her lover away from her, so you  can hardly expect her to feel an overwhelming affection for you."  "The woman who stole her lover  away from her?" repeated Jean slowly. "I don't understand. What do  you mean, Blaise?"  He glanced at her in some surprise.  "Surely Don't   you   know   the  circumstances?"  She shook her head.  "Np.    I simply don't know in the  least what you   are ;���������', talking   about.  Please tell me."  Tormarin made no response for a  moment. He was standing with his  back to the light, but as he lit a cigarette the flare of the match revealed  a worried, expression on his face, as  though he deprecated the turn the  conversation was taking,  "Oh,, well/' he said at last," evading  the point at issue, "it's all ancient  history now. Let it go. There's never  anything gained by diggliig up the  dry bones of the past."  Jean's mouth set itself tn a mutinous line of determination,  "Please tell me, Blaise," she reiterated. "As it is something which  concerns my father and a woman I  shall probably be meeting fairly often  In tlio future, I think I have a right  to know about It."

Then Jean uttered a low cry  of dismay.  "My father did that? Are you  sure?" ...  "Quite sure."  Tormaain could see that the story  had distressed her. Her eyes showed  hurt ahd bewildered like those of a  child who has met with a totally unexpected rebuff. ���������  "Don't take it like that!" he urged  hastily. "After all, it was nothing so  terrible. You look as though he had  broken every one of the ten commandments"���������smiling. "'    '  Jean smiled, back rather wanly.

"Well,., excuse, then, if you like  One thing is that Jacqueline Mavorv  was one of the? most beautiful of women, and the other, that your father's  engagement to Judith had really been  more or less ei-gsiiSered by the3r respective parents���������adjoining properties, friends of long standing, and so  on. . it was no love-match���������on his  side." '  "But on her wedding-day 1"���������pitifully.    "Oh!   Boor Judith!"  Tormarin smiled a trifle cynically.  "That was the root of the trouble.  It was Judith's pride that was hurt  ���������as well as her heart. She married  Major Craig not long after, and I believe they were really fond of one another and comparatively happy. But  she has never forgiven Peterson from  that day to this. And you, being Jacqueline Maviory's daughter, wiii come  in for the residue of her bitterness.  Unless"���������ironically���������"you can make  friends with her."  "I shall try to," said Jean simply.  "Is Major Craig living now?"  "No. He died out in India, and after  his death Judith came hack to England. She has lived at Willow Ferry  with her brother, Geoffrey Burke.  over sLn.ce."  There was a long silence, while Jean  tried to fit in tho new facts she had  learned with her knowledge of her  father's character. She wag a little  afraid that Tormarin might misunderstand her Impulsive outburst of indignation.  "Don't .think that I am sitting In  judgment on my father," she said at  lost. "In a way, I can���������even understand his doing such a thing, You  know, for the last two years of my  mother's life I was with them both  constantly, and anyone living wEth  them oouid understand their doing all  Irindi. of things that ordinary people  wouldn't do."

The memorandum declares since  most empire countries i_r������ StOW Ojul the  gold standard the 'struggle to attract  and retain gold has ceased. But, in  order to remain competitive in the  world's markets, the nations are  obliged to force down prices by currency contraction .which has led to  similar contractions by cither nations,  neutralizing the first advantage and  depressing prices below the cost of  production.  This, the memorandum says, has  reduced the purchasing power of 91  per cent, of the world's population.  So-called over-production, it continues, as really under consumption, owing to restricted purchasing power.  No one nation can prevent this deflation, the memorandum contends,  and the only group strong enough to  take effective measures is the British  Empire, within which members would  insulate themselves from, external  competition while re-expanding their  currencies, action which would make  possible the establishment Of sane cooperation. *  In all infantile complaints that are  the result of the depredations of  worms in the stomach and intestines  Miller's Worm Powders win be found  an effective remedy.

LIMITED  THE CBESTON REVIEW  issued every Friday at Creston, B.C.  Subscription: $2.50 a year in advance:  $3.00 to U.S. points..  C. F.-HAYES, Editor and Owner.  CRESTON, B.C.,   FRIDAY,  JAN.  29  LETTERS TO THE EDITOR  The Vanishing Dollar  Editor Review:  Sir,���������To apply a remedy for  this depression one must understand the cause, of which I gave  an outline in my previous letter,  titled " "The Vanishing Dollar."  If you have not read it you  should get a copy of the  Review,  and read itr as it will give you a  better    understanding     of     the  remedy.   Fcr to give   a remedy  one should know the cause.  To   stop   depression   we  must  stop money from being taken out  of circulation.    To do this   Lt   is  absolutely   necessary  tb   abolish  interest charges on money.    Then  it will become a permanent factor  among the people.    But in order  that money will not become mon-  oplized again we must go  further  than   merely    stopping    interest  charged  on   it.    -We   must   also  abolish gold from our monetary  system.   Silver should remain, as  it is necessary for change.  But before I go farther with  this situation let us see what  money really   is.    Let's shove   it  under a   microscope and  look it  over.   We will find it nothing less  than stored energy, for it would  be of no use if there were nothing  prodnced,    and   to.  produce   requires energy.    So in order   that  we  can   trade    our  energy   for  some other energy���������produce���������we  must have a go-between, medium  of    exchange     money.   Tt     is  similar to a   battery in your car  which    takes   up    the   surplus  energy when   there  k   an   over  supply,    and    discharges   when  there     is      a      heavier     drain  than  what is   supplied,   keeping  the energy more or less constant,  so with these facts in mind one  can see   money is  only a   credit  slip, which has no direct bearing  on the value of gold.   So in order  to hold prosperity we must eliminate gold as the backing for our  paper   money, for   if this is not  done gold can again be monopolized  by a few,  and again   make  the public pay interest  to  get it  back into circulation.  Gold is a very beautiful metal  and can be made useful both in  art and service, so why lock it behind great steel doors like some  criminal; surely we have more  respect for its beauty than that.  Of course, if only one country  adopted this system it would be  Cjuite necessary to use gold as a  medium of exchange between  nations, and to buy back our  money that was spent in foreign  countries.  i With our money free"from the  gold it should leave enough gold  that is stored in the banks to pay  off most of our international  debts, and if there is not enough  we could dig some more, and it  would give employment.  There should be no taxation, as  its rather a pest at these times*  The government does not need  taxes to carry o-" business and  pay her employees. To free a  country from taxation it would  be absolutely necessary for the  government to take over the  banking system and chase the  money hoarders out into the  world to make an honest living-  Allow no interest to be charged  on money, not even the government. Abolish gold from our  monetary system, and use it only  as a commerce of exchange with  foreign nations. Cancel all debts  due the banks on mortgage and  all other interest-bearing bebts.  That would clean the house of  parliament  pretty well  of all its  public improvements such as  building roads, bigger and better  schools, etc.  Buying up or leaving on cle-  posit all the money now in  circulation    among    the   people.  ���������_-._L._--__.--.__._- ���������__.__- A __  fl ___.__.__n_* ���������_.._-��������� _..A.-_-__._N.__.  ���������_m_--A- A.

With this in mind I will  try to  outline how the government can  keep up   its debts   without   taxation.    Take   for   example,   you  are employed by the bank, or any  other      government     job.   The  bank could give you a cheque for  wages, we'll say $100.   You  will  either deposit it to your account  at "the bank or   purchase   something with it and the   man   you  purchase it from will deposit it in  the bank, so the bank has paid its  debt, and still retains its money,  for as a rule money is never out  of the   bank  for   local  business  more than three or four days, and  outside   business,    very   seldom  more     than  a   month,    so   the  government would never be si ort  of monevto meet her debts.  Of    course     the    government  would be using the public money*  for in   reality the    government  or     banks     would    own    very  little money, for the most  of  it  would be owned   by the public.  But as the public   does   all,   or  nearly all of its business through  the banks, the government could  be using the money at the same  time as the public, and would not  need to tax the people to do so,  as there wouldn't be very much  money out at one time,  as most  of the business would be done by  cheques,    and   would  leave  the  banks   plenty of   cash   to   meet  emergencies.  And in case anyone would try  to monopolize the money again  by drawing it out of the banks  and hoarding it, the banks could  make a call on the money, and  issue new, and those who were  hoarding great quantities would  soon be found, or what ttoey had  would be of no value.  . And so it would be with no interest on money once in circulation, there it wouid remain among  the people, never to be taken out  by money lenders, and there  would be continuous prosperity.  I hope I have made it clear how  the government can be run without taxation, and why it is so all  important to do away with  interest charged on money.  Before another winter there  will be thousands of people,  through taxation and interest on  money, lose their homes, and will  be turned out into the cold, and if  they are fed at all it will surely  come from the few taxpayers  that are left, and those taxpayers  that have failed to pay their  taxes will increape the taxes on  the ones that do.  Here is something that is  facing the people of Canada. The dominion government  in her taxes last year was about  one hundred million dollars in default. Figuring this year's default will be the same it will  mean that the taxpayer will have  two hundred million to make up  above last year's, tax, and if it is  not made tip this year it will be  higher when St is made up as  the de- fault is drawing interest.

"FU  . . . <s *%  Astrologer Makes Some  Unpleasant  Predictions  _Da the course of the snore or less extensive reading- in which every man  La newspaper work must engage, our attention was attracted by a magazine  article bearing tlie title "In Times Like These/' written by former U.S.  President Calvin Coolidge. Coming from tbe pen of such, a noteworthy man  we felt assured that it would be a worthwhile article. We were not disappointed, and have decided to pass on to the circle of readers of this weekly  column some of the thoughts expressed by the only living ex-President of  the United States, in the hope and. expectation that they may be found helpful and provide encouragement to others.  Mr. Coolidge expresses the opinion that one of the serious results that  come from, the experience through, which the world has been passing for the  past two years is "loss -of faith," and he proceeds to show that if a man but  keeps his faith, regardless of anything and everything that may happen,  there is still a bright future before him.  The difficulty is that "because some have put their trust in things whicb  they have found <io not always endure, they draw the hasty and unwarranted  conclusion that it is useless to have faith in anything. Furthermore, there  is a tendency, and it is easy, to conclude that whatever disasters may have  overtaken an individual for him to conclude that they have arisen through.  no fault of his own; rather that it is the fault of someone, and he is inclined.  t* blame something he loosely calls society.  It is true that some have lost through the dishonesty of others. Many  more have lost because they were tempted to take large risks in the hope of  making large gains. Some did make large profits, but many more suffered  heavy losses. Frankly, it must be said that those who trust to chance must  abide by the results of chance.   They liave nobody to blame hut themselves.  In Western Canada, however, probably the larger number of losers are  to be found in Mr. Coolidge's third group,, those who have sustained losses  notwithstanding the exercise of their best judgment and through causes beyond their own individual control. But this simply means what everyone  should know: that even when surrounded by all the safeguards and all the  integrity which is possible to secure, the ownership of property involves a  risk. The man who has nothing runs no risk; it is the man who has property  who is liable to suffer. Nevertheless no sane person prefers to be the former  rather than the latter.  The man who owns a house may lose it hy fire, by flood, by a devastating storm. A man's livestock may sicken and die. A man may lose his  crops by drouth, or hail, or insect pests. World conditions may force prices  to a below-cost-of-production basis. He cannot help these things, but that  does not excuse him from making the most of what he has. <��������� The great fact  of life is uncertainty, as Mr. Coolidge points out. The only thing we can  do is to recognize the uncertainty and govern ourselves accordingly.  It might be a great personal comfort if we could lay all the blame for  our misfortune upon some source outside ourselves. That is why it is easy  to convince some of us that we have not failed, but society has failed. But  while there is a relationship of all of us, which we term society, that differs  from each of us, just as a house differs from the individual bricks in it, yet  people are not bricks, and moral responsibility cannot be shifted to others.  If we are to be free to make our own choices in life, we must take the risk  of being responsible for the results.  If we could lay the blame for present conditions in the world on society  at large, against whom is the blame to be assessed ? It is impossible to point  out any general moral lapse, any widespread dishonesty. We may say it is  the result of greed and selfishness. But what body is to be specifically  charged with that? Were thc wage earners too greedy in getting all they  could for their work? Were the managers of enterprise, big and little, too  greedy in trying to operate at a profit? Were the farmers too greedy in their  production or in co-operating to get higher prices for their products.  No, the most wc can say is that there has been a general lack of judgment so widespread as to involve practically the whole world. Each and  every one of us must assume our full share of responsibility for that lack.  We have found out that we were not so big as we thought we were. We  were riding too high. We shall have to keep nearer thc ground. We may not  feel so elated but we shall be much safer.  We must realize that the best recipe for financial security is to live  within our means. That is our ancient faith. We have found nothing  better.  We must rc-Iearn the old Biblical admonition: "Thine own right hand  can save thee." We must realize that Governments are not all-powerful,  that present relief measures are but a crutch to help us for a moment when  we cannot otherwise help ourselves, but that our salvation, our whole future,  rests with us as individuals.  There is no powor that can absolutely guarantee us economic security.  We thlfck we want relief from toil ancl worry, forgetful that our real satisfactions are in our achievements. If wc will but make tho effort to develop  them, if we will apply ourselves faithfully to our tasks, we shall all find wo  have powers wo did not know we possessed.  Says 1932 Hard Year For Cattle and  Married People  Prof. C-Ustav^iMeyer, of Hoboken,  Ne\v York, who .describes himself as  "the nation's counsellor and American scientific astrologer" cast his eyes  heavenward,wadded up several rows of  figures and predicted that 1932 is going to be a tough" year for cattle and  married people.  In scanning tho planets for his annual first-of-the-year forecast, Professor Meyer considers that Japan  and China are going to have much  trouble, and that Japan will get the  best of it in the "long run. He feels  that prohibition is going to have "a  terrible time" during 1932, that prosperity is coming back to stay, that  Colonel Lindbergh and Henry Ford  had better watch their step in February and that next Fall there will be  plenty of rain, snow, hail, thunder  and lightning, floods, earthquakes,  bank failures, broken legs and stomach trouble.  Among those who will suffer during the year, according to the professor's charts, s_re theatrical people,  hotel and restaurant people, steamship people, bull traders, naval officers and cabinet members.  These who will enjoy good luck include literary people, scientific people, astrologers, mining men, real estate agents, President Hoover, soldiers, diplomats and all the unemployed.

Many of the ideas  which result from the extensive research of the industry's engineers  seem radical at first glance, but are  a forecast off what may be expected  for future automotive transportation.  Among the many possible developments discussed in engineering circles is such a startling suggestion as  a gasolineless, Waterless car, propelled by radiated electricity. Another unusual proposal calls for the  use of an airplane type of construction for cara, with large" fenders and  a combined xoof and wing, structure  lifting a considerable amount of  weight from the road, and with propulsion furnished by a propeller.

He -was put aboard the  steamer "Borsund" at Halifax, and  when permission was refused to la__d  him at Bermuda or Demerara where  the authorities had no information  concerning him, the only alternative  was to bring hint back to Canada.  Having previously been deported  from the Dominion,, he was refused  admission when the "Borsund" arrived  at St. John, and now the captain  and immigration officials are wondering what they shall do -with the passenger.

'M..V1&W.   'GRES'TOW*  'G  RADICAL CIMNC  IN MONETARY  SYSTEM I  Edmonton, Alberta.���������In a smashing frontal attack on the existing financial system the United Farmers of  Alberta, in convention '-her*, condemned, the gold standard, called for  the complete nationalization of the  monetary-system and the extension of  krecHt*to industry on a. basis of cost,  not of profit. <  The farmers/ refused, however, to  declare themselves !n favor of nationalization of all the banks. Th^y  thought, with a national credit system, the banks would either not be  needed or would have to render as  good service as the national system.  The resolution passed, was ' 'Resolved that we, the delegates of the  U.F.A., in convention, do endorse the  complete nationalization of the monetary system to advance credit on a  basis of. cost, hot on a basis of  profit."  Coincident with the demand for a  national credit system came a proposal for intensified political action  to bring this about. A resolution  call for this wets defeated only on the  ground that the United Farmer members in the Federal Parliament had  done all possible.  Complaint was made that the  United Farmer Government of Alberta and the farmer members of the  ���������legislature had not taken the strong  stand on the question which had been  taken by the Federal members. The  convention called on the Provincial  Government and all officers and members of the association to proclaim  publicly their belief that monetary  reform was the only way out of the  depression and so give moral support  to the members at Ottawa.  This implied a censure on the Provincial Government, said William Ir-  . vine, M.P., of Wetaskiwin. The matter "s.as one for thc Dominion Government alone and the Provincial Government had to work under the present system and borrow money from  ��������� the banks:  . ;."���������*'.  "It will soon be apparent that every  provincial government in T Canada is.  at the beck and call of the financial  'interests in Wall Street/! said Mr.  Irvine. This, he thought, might be  good propaganda for the cause of  monetary reform.  Fanners should unite with Industrial workers to secure political power and so change the system, said  Karl Axelson. There was nothing  wrong with the Bank Ac t except it  was in the hands of the wrong people.  The producing classes should wrest  control from the vested financial  powers.  As the convention passed a resolution calling for the abandonment of  the gold standard, Henry Spencer,  member of* parliament for Battle  River, said Canada had already, gone  off the gold standard although the  government did not admit it.  Deflation off currency was also favored as a. means of increajglng the  sale of farm products. The "Suggestion that instead of "borrowing money  and paying interest "to'- the great  financial powers" for unemployment  relief works, the government should  issue new paper money, was endorsed^  Amendment of the Bank Act to  provide a penalty for any bank or  bank official charging higher interest than seven per cent, was asked.  Thla was a reiteration toff the demand  made in the House of Common*, last  year by Mr, Spencer.  , '  Another resolution ��������� parsed   called  upon, the government, to snake wheat  certificates legal tender.      It would  enable a farmer to take the receipts  for wheat delivered to an elevator and  use them to make purchases.  .     .   The    Cutuuliaix. tatiii'. . wyulcui. was ���������  "denounced and a resolution declared  the time had come for nn "all round  reduction in our cuatoiwla duties'* to  tha intent.that within a period of not  lefl������ than live years every featjiws of  .    thin- barbaric e oonomlc si .neratitlon be  eliminated from the fiscal policy of  our" country."'

Gilbert, Canadian Airways, Limited, according to word received in the city.  Such an award to an aviator is believed to be unusual.      '  Pilot Gilbert flies Canadian Airways, Limited, - machines from Edmonton to the Arctic Coast, and was  associated -with Major Burwash on  the latter's trip to King William  Land and the north magnetic pole in  the fall of 1930.

Aviators Stranded; In China  Robert Gardiner Unanimously Chosen  To Lead Organization For  "  <    Second Term  Edmonton, Alberta.���������Robert Gardiner was unanimously chosen president "of the United Farmers of Alberta for a second term at the annua! convention here.  The veteran farm leader, who represents Acadia in the House of Commons and is also leader of the United  Farmers of Alberta group in Dominion politics, was given an ovation  when no other nominations were of-  ferred.  Mr. Gardiner notified the members they had better look around for  another president for 1933. He said  he found the burden of carrying the  two posts of leader of the group in  the House of Commons and president  of the association too heavy.  Norman F. Priestly, Calgary, was  re-elected vice-president "by acclamation. A. F. Aiken, Battle River,  was also nominated, but withdrew in  favor of a renewal of Mr. Priestly's  term of office.
