Two new events have been added to  the programme, a 50-yard dash each for  boys and girls under nine. Due to the  length of the programme it has been de-.  cided to run off' the junior events and  the heats for the senior events in the  morning, thus preventing too long an  afternoon.  Competitors in each event have been  limited in number to two from each  school. All entries must be handed in to  Mr. Marriott before May 7. Individual  numbers will then be assigned, to avoid  the confusion of last year. Awards will  be  made the same day, probably at 5!  P_n.

The aim of the committee is to  inculcate the highest ideals of sportman-  shipin the youth of the district and to  develop any at letic ability amongst the  school pupils by affording them suitably  supervised and organized competitive  sport.  1932  Season Closed  High School 'AyTeam Champions Both Leagues���������Complete  Season Unbeaten���������Individual  Scoring Honor is 44 Tie.  conditions.

For the first season,  the  basketball  league feels that it  has  attained   considerable success.

The    league has had  the use of the hall rent-free, paying light  and fuel   bills,  and  installing   its  own  equipment.   Two leagues have operated  for the ladies, while the men have also  made use of the facilities  offered.

Their envy led them to  ail up the wells which Abraham his  father had dug, and Abimelech, their  king-, ordered Isaac to leave. Without  wells Isaac could not support his livestock, and although, as his enemies  admitted, he was stronger than they,  he would not contend with them, but  moved on and erected his camp in  the Valley of Gerar.  "It used to be a mark of a gentleman that he would instantly resent  an encroachment on his rights, and  pick a quarrel at a moment's notice.  Today that would be a mark of ill-  breeding. Where education and Christian culture have done their fullest  work, there is most patience and  gentleness."  Trouble At Gerar, verses 18-21. ���������  Isaac re-dug the wells made by Abraham which the Philistines had  stopped up, and called them by the original names. In digging for a new well  in the vaEIey he   found   "a.   well    oi!  springing water,"    for    the    underground stream    was    tapped    which  flows below the rock through the valley past Hebron and Gerar and Beer-  sheba.   Trouble   then   arose,   for  the  herdsmen of Gerar claimed it. Isaac  called that well "Esek," which means  "Contention" and T,atient!v du**- another one. For  that the others contended also, and Isaac called it "Sit-  nah," which means "Hatred."      It is  our    ignorance    of    patriarchal    life  which makes us" think it unaccountable' to ������_ear, in those early days, of  so   many   contests. about  wells:   for  on nearer inspection we  should find  that in their arid regions a well of  springing water was a possession of  inestimable   value.     Hence   wo  later  find Moses, in magnifying the Divine  bounty    to   the   children   of   Israel,  among other parts of the inventory,  reckoning   up   not   only   'great   and  goodly cities which they builded not,'  but 'wells which they digged not'."  Peiace At Last, verse 22.���������Once  more Isaac moved on and dug another  well. This one he called "Behoboth,"  which means "Room," for there he  had no further trouble. "Now Jehovah hath made room for us, and we  shall be fruitful in the land," he declared. Rehoboth was about fourteen  miles southwest of Beersheba. Remains of wells are still in existence  there.  The Blessing At Beersheba, verses  23-25.-���������Isaac went on to Beersheba  and there in a vision at night he  heard that he should be blessed for  Abraham's sake. "Fear not, for I  am with thee." "The waves which  lash the surface of the sea are only  on the surface; beLow, the deeps aro  calm, and Isaac, quietly leaving place  after place, felt the deeps of hia soul  untouched. What was tho loss of a  well, or ten wells, to him with whom  God waa, for his portion, his exceeding and long-suffering, great reward."  ���������F. W. Robertson.

New Resource That Is Now Creating  "Widespread interest'  Western Canada, in common with  some other places, is waking up to  the existence of a new and valuable  natural resource in its muskegs. Recent Investigations by the Industrial  Development Board of Manitoba, with  the aid of Mr. A. Anrep, peat specialist of the Ottawa Department of  Mines, have brought to light many  facts regarding the-new resource that  are occasioning widespread interest,  and have revealed peat deposits of  considerable extent and value in the  bogs near Whitemouth.  "Muskeg," according to one authority, is probably the most useful word  in the Cree language, and no other  language seems to possess a word  so comprehensive. It denotes either  any kind of bog, or the material contained in a boggy deposit. Previously,  people in Western Canada attached  no great value to this resource, regarding it as merely a troublesome  impediment to transportation, or else  as productive only of an inferior sort  of fuel. But tho studies of the In-  Industrial Development Board, which  have taken cognizance of the remarkable exploitation of bogs and moors  in European countries, are developing  an .entirely new attitude toward West-  em muskegs, until today some authorities regard peat as a resource  taking precedence, in the industrial  scheme to petroleum, rubber and cotton.  We may pause here to set out in  brief some of the uses of sphagnum  moss, peat, peat mull, peat board,  etc. They include: Insulating material; bedding; agricultural and horticultural purposes; packing for preserving fruit, vegetables, fish and  meats; surgical dressings; fuel; litter  for stables; wall board; deodorant;  wall plaster, etc., etc.  Mr. Anrep, who comes of a family  of peat specialists, makes the following note regarding it: "On account  of its high absorptive powers, from  7 to 14 times its own weight in moisture (while straw absorbs on!" three  times Its weight) and~of its acid  qualities, it acts as a natural scavenger, as an antiseptic and germ-destroying factor, and because of this  we consider it a great gift of nature,  for the use of the people at large."  Very strong claims are made for it  as an insulator of heat. It is urged  that if peat insulation were used in  the rural and urban dwellings of  Western Canada, it would save vast  sums in fuel.  "We use  116 per  cent. more.fuel  than is necessary," declares Mr. D. C.  which is one of the trib-  "YEARS CAit  BRING YOU ADDED  91  CHARM  says JACK HOLT  JACK HOLT  Columbia Star  "Some women seem.  to grow more allur- -  ing every year,1**  says Jack Holt. .

Peat moss is undoubtedly valuable  as stable littea. and bedding for  horses, cattle, and pigs. It prevents  hoof and mouth diseases, keeps the  animals healthy and strong, clears  hides and fur of dandruff, keeps air  in the stables clean and sweet, absolutely frees barns of bacteria and  flies. The moss is non-combustible. If  fired, it will smoulder, and is easily  detected and put out, being therefore  much safer than straw.  Poultry-keepers will be particularly Impressed with the remarkable  cleanliness of peat moss when used  as litter in coops. In pens where straw  is used, the atmosphere is invariably  foul and heavy; with peat It Is pure  and wholesome, the hens are healthier and cleaner, lay more eggs, and  are free of insects and vermin. A  single bedding of proper depth will  last over six months.  While peat moss is not in itself a  fertilizer, lt is nevertheless valuable  in sandy soils for retaining the humus. Five parts peat litter with one  part  bone   meal   or   other  fertilizer^  makes a good mixture.     In the case  of heavy clay, such a mixture worked into it makes it workable and porous.    To rhododendrons, azaleas, cyclamen,   coniferous   trees   and   other  plants, peat mull is beneficial on account of its acidity. On account of its  insulating quality,  it also makes  an  excellent protective covering in storing  bulbs,   tubers,   or  roots   for   tho  winter. Carrots and l_������eta have been  kept packed and in excellent preservation for over a year In peat mull  containing 40  to  45 por cont. moisture.    Florists also find it useful in  the packing and shipping of flowers.  A fish firm in Northumberland ships  flsh in long sphagnum plants and has  found that after two weeks tho fish  remain as fresh n������ when caught from  the sea.  An extremely Interesting use of  sphagnum moss Is for surgical dressings. During tho Great War, Sir  Lauder Brunton, famous English physician, mado extensive use of dre.ts-  ngs of this sort.

Recently very powerful arguments were  made against draining off the natural,  waters of the West, by experts discussing  the   drought   conditions   and.  lack of rainfall on the prairies. People are now learning that these muskegs are valuable, not only for their-  peat resources, but as humidifiers of  the air.  A vast amount of information on  this subject has been assembled by  thc Industrial Development Board of  Manitoba, and efforts are now underway to have the Whitemouth peat resources properly developed.

He made it quite plain that  if the Exchange and Associated  were linked up this year plans  had already been laid to operate  more economically than in past  years.  Mr. Chambers assured that in  any comparison of prices received  in 1931 the Associated returns  showed up very favorably. He  said estimates made this month  indicated the B.C. apple crop will  be one million boxes heavier than  in 1931, and that meant that a  market outside western Canada  had to be found for an additional  1000 carloads. j-������.~   -  He explained that the present cents.

The chair was occupied by Jas.  Compton, president of the Ex- j  change, and the chief item of business was the balance sheet,  presented and explained by J. "W.  Hamilton, and was adopted with  little discussion. The figures submitted indicated that the Exchange is in a very favorable  financial condition, and with another successful season's operations would be in a position to]  tackle storage, according to the  remarks of W. Vance, Associated  central % manager at Creston two  years ago, who was also present  and spoke.  Two directors had to be chosen,  and Mr. Compton was re-elected  along with Jas. Carr for a three-  year term. These with H. A.  Dodd, L. T. Leveque, E. W.  Klingensmith, John Hall and J.  M. Craigie complete the board of  management.  Mr. Vance's talk was brief but  businesslike. He took occasion to  present prices obtained by the  Associated last year on bulk  apples as compared with published  prices paid by one of the Creston  selling agencies, He gave some  information on apgle box prices  for 1932, which will be slightly  lower than 1931 but there might  tended, and were the preference  increased to 50 cents a box the  apple marketing problem would  be solved. 1931 had been a profitable one on the Old Country  market, particularly with Jonathans, but due to the crop producing much large size fruit the  export trade, which runs to smaller sizes, had been harder than  usual to handle. Mr. Chambers  pointed out that the Associated  believed in an aggressive campaign to secure new markets and  in 1931 had sold 36 carloads in  Egypt. He also stressed the  value off a brand. The OK labal  has always been on boxed fruit of  top quclity and in consequence  it was getting the preference  against newer brands.  He looked for a slow but sure  comeback to better prices, urged  serious consideration of providing  storage facilities so as to avoid as  far as possible bulk shipments.  He stated that the Associated  still had about 70 carloads of  1931 apples unsold, but with  quite a brisk movement of  Delicious at present to New  York. Mcintosh Reds were now  fall sold.  Pentieton council has refused  to consider cutting the pay of  man and team from $8 and $7  per day.

It  was accomplished by the adoption of rigid economies on the one hand and the  imposition of heavier taxation on the other hand.  The United States with a current deficit of over two billions of dollars,  is engaged in the task of trying to find a way to balance its budget. Here  too, the imposition of new and heavier taxation is being considered as the only  way out, -with economies in administration receiving less attention than in  Great Britain.  $aii_-4A4' n; ____.___* W:  t ��������� vm __>___  Blind Man Is Successful Commercial  Traveller In   Australia  Of all the work possible for a blind  person surely that of a commercial  traveller has most difficulties.

The reductions will be made in all  classes of travel from First Class to  Third Class. A reduction of 20 per  cent, will be made on all First Class,  Cabin and Tourist Class rates to Europe. In Third Class,, the rates which  are already extremely low, have been  further reduced by 10 per cent. The  reductions wall apply to all services of  the Cunard and Anchor. Lines between the United States, Canada and  Europe and to all their ships, including the three Express Liners, "Berengaria," "Aquitania,"' and "Mauretania/'  In addition, the usual "Summer  Season" increase has been dispensed  with, the new low rates applying all  year around. Thus, in effect passengers will be paying as, much as 40%  less than previously in the summer  season. Some idea of 'the size of  these reductions may be obtained  from a comparison of the new minimum rates for various classes and  steamers.

This is the opinion of Hon. H.  H. Stevens, Minister of Trade and  Commerce, expressed in a statement  made public here.  Referring to articles published in  Chicago and elsewhere In the United  States to the effect that Canadian  wheat pools had ' accomplished the  "ruin of Canadian wheat farmers"  who were; threatening to "strike  against taxation" and talking "secession," Mr. Stevens declared that  Canadian wheat pool members still  had faith in their co-operative organization   and  were   shipping   a  large  -��������������������������� ..      . * *__������    ���������.���������. -������_-*     __-*-_.-���������������    -4>_������_a._. ._-������_U      -������/.������l  g-vuvixru   ux    uicu    ������_<uu    uiiuugu   ^sJvrx  elevators. Furthermore, no losses  have been sustained by farmer members of the wheat pools other than  that they were -disappointed at not  obtaining further sums for their 1929  wheat .sold through the pools owing  to the sudden drop in prices.  <The profits of farmer-owned  handling facilities have always  been very large, and no doubt will  rapidly repay the advances (made by  the prairie governments) -without any  Iosa to the governments concerned,"  said the minister.  ���������The situation in respect to the  wheat pools In the three prairie  provinces," said. Mr. Stevens, "is substantially as follows:  "Three pools, previously operating  under a contract with  their grower  members, have released, those members from the operation of that contract.     The holdings of    the    wheat  pools  as  pools  are  gradually  being  liquidated by the pools themselves Tas  market opportunities afforded, being  only assisted by the Dominion Government in their    financing;   - Pools,  however,   are  operating  their subsidiary elevator companies independently which are still solvent and are in  no  danger  of liquidation.       Certain  losses amounting to some $22,000,000  were sustained  by  the pool on the  1929  crop,  the advance payment to  their   farmer   members   proving   excessive in view of the slump in the  market.    These- losses x^ere guaranteed by the various  provincial -gov-,  ernments. according to the provincial  interest, in approximately the following proportions:   Albertia,   $6,500,000;  Saskatchewan, $13,000,000; Mapitoba,  $2,500,000.  The    provincial    governments have made good these amounts  to the banks   and   have   negotiated  agreements with the pools for the repayment,. which will be done out of  the earnings of the subsidiary elevator companies and other assets of the  pools.       To  secure  themselves,   the  various provincial governments have  taken a flrst charge over the assets  of the pools,  namely elevators,  terminals, etc., of an approximate value  of some $30,000,000.   No losses were  sustained   by   the   farmer   members  other than  the    disappointment    of  not   obtaining   further     sums      for  their wheat sold  through  the  pools.  This,   of   course,   is   a   contractural  liability.  Will Probably Come Before Jfmperial  -Economic Conference  Ottawa, Ont.���������Senator Arthur  Meighen,.

The  best opportunity to review the-entire  trade would be at the conference table.  Organization?' of. the confecence  agenda was under the supervision of  the cabinet said Senator Meighen.
