C, FRIDAY,   AUGUST 5,  1932  No. 20  Apple Marketing  Next Problem  School  Walks  Completed  Attention of Growers and Shippers Directed to Disposal of  1932 Crop��������� Okanagan Situation Chaotic.  By the end of last week the board  walk surrounding the school was completed, effecting a big improvement.  Width is eight feet. Walks were also  put down connecting with those on the  streets. All work was done by day  labor, the job being divided equally  among local carpenters.      "  Irrigation Loan  *1F  1 m  Hay Permits this Month  With a fairly successful strawberry  and raspberry season and good results  from the black and red currants and  gooseberries; with cherry returns to a  certain extent clouded in gloom and uncertainty in this the 11th hour of '1932  cherry marketing, Creston and district is  now entering the second phase of this  year's crop movement. Small fruits are  being replaced in public import nee by  tomatoes and cucumbers and such like  flora, while executives of the various and  sundry fruit marketing agencies here  have heaved sighs of relief at the conclusion of a somewhat hectic cherry  marketing campaign, wherein many  competing districts, organizations and  individuals have stamped heavily over  each other's toes in tha effort to secure  what could be obtained in the way of returns from a badly gutted prairie  market.  For the time being fruit marketing  executives are able to get a little sleep.  After aii, local growers of the delectable  Creston cherry will realize something,  and with so much of the harvesting done  by family members it may be that  prophecies of-blue ruin and damnation  current a month ago may prove not to  be so bad after all. Taking it all in all  and sizing it up bv large and small,  . pool cars and l.c.l. and consigned shipments the average return-hereabouts  should be about one simoleon a crate.  For some it may be better, and for some  The outcome of tomatoes,  etc.,  is  on  thc laps of the Gods.  Attention is being centered to an increasing degree on the conditions  affecting apples. Creston will have a  fine crop of apples; so will the Okan.  agan and various points in the .Kootenays. Hence there id some apprehension  that apple selling in this year of grace  will not be so hot. *  In the Okanagan a scrap of huge proportions has been brewing for some time;  it is now at a crescendo. Various  papers in the dry belt have been spilling  over into three column, and banner  headlines. All of which indicates that  they must be to a certain extent be get-  " ting rather hot and bothered about it in  that neck of the woods.   -������������������  It is pointed out the cherry deal has  been an instance of what is likely >o  happen with apples. Fearing this,  Associated Sales Service and the B. C.  Fruit Shippers Ltd. favor the appointment of a quota adjudicator who would  allot to each shipper his share of the  daily sales, according to the tonnage  controlled. This, it was considered,  would put each shipper in the'position  of getting his share of the market and  taking his share of the fruit which might  have to be dumped or diverted. It waB  proposed that 100 per cent, cooperation  along this line be obtained and that  agreements be signed and bonds  executed.  The Shippers' Council considered this  unworkable, proposing aa a i alternative  among other things that the council set  fruit values but not fixed prices, also  that tlio council take power to regulate  that certain grades of any particular  variety shall not be shipped in order to  avoid a surplus. A bond or deposit from  each member was proposed.  To the foregoing the Associated and  B.C. Sales Shippers, retort thnt this  plan will not work satisfactorily in that  uny agreements rolating to values or  prices had not beon observed in tho past  because of evasions and secret rebates.  And that's that.  In the meantime the apples aro getting  larger each day. If tho problem ia  w������.rkod out in tho Immnnnoly overshadowing Okanogan district satisfactorily, it will help this area; if tho rc-  vfivse is tho enso, it will menu much  moro of a scramble for local growers and  affiliated marlcoting organizations with  the devil taking the hindmost.  Spokane Visitors  Due Here Today  Creston Board of Trade and  Bonners Ferry Chamber to be  Hosts to Representatives of  Spokane Chamber.  Following a visit here last Friday of  four members of the Bonners Ferry  chamber of commerce, the executive of  the Creston boardVof trade is going  ahead with arrangements for cooperating  with the Bonners organization in the  matter of assisting in entertainment of a  delegation from the agricultural committee of the Spokane chamber of commerce on a yisit to the Kootenay Valley  today.    (Friday)  The Spokane residents are scheduled  to reach Bonners Ferry at 10:28, a.m.,  where automobiles with Bonners Ferry  drivers .and escorts will be available to  start the trip. The expedition will head  directly for Creston and a Dutch lunch  will be ready for the visitors at suitable  picnic grounds on the flats. Arrange  ments in this connection are in the  hands of the board's executive. It is arranging for the guidance of the party to  points of interest in and about Creston.  The return trip will be made via Camp  Lister to Porthill, where the river  will be crossed to the west side and an  in^e^tion ���������;*--__d*^^^^  farms an the. area between Porthili.. and  Bonners Ferry The latter point will be  left by t^ain at 6:39 p.m.  It is expected that about 30 .will come  in the Spokane delegation, and that the  visitors from -Bonners Ferry will be  about the same in number. Many of  them will be visiting the Valley for the  first time, while others who have visited  the Valley on previous occasions will be  able to compare present conditions with  several years ago when the reclamation  districts south of the line were first  organized.  "Members of the Spokane chamber of  commerce   have   always    been   greatly  interested    in  the development of the  rich farm lands of the Kootenai Vallpy,"  E. A. Boyd,  of the   Boyd-Conlee Co.,  Spokane, said a few days ago, "and  this  interest was heightened  recently  when  Prof. Ray Neidig, of   the  Consolidate  Mining and Smelting company, speaking  before the chamber, told  of the  results  obtained by   the   use   of   the fertilizer  which bis company has distributed in the  Valley.    Many of the Spokane  men  are  interested,     directly    or   indirectly    in  farming    operations, and   Mr. Neidig's  talk   has     turned    their   minds to   the  possibilities of   using fertilizers in  crop  production.   They want to see for themselves the advantages of its  use."  ror wynnaei  $ 30,000 Available From B. C.  Conservation Fund���������Work on  Project Scheduled to Start This  Fall.  With announcement from Victoria  that the provincial government has con  sented to a loan of $30,000 to Wynndel  irrigation district, assurance is now given  that work on this highly important and  most beneficial project can be under  way this fall. It is officially stated that  operations will be started in October.  The loan is from  the  provincial conservation fund.    It was assented to last  week    by    Lieutenant-Governor   J.   W  Fordham Johnston, thus  validating the  order-in-council respecting it  Financial assistance to the Wynndel  project was based on a favorable report  by C. C. Kelly, soil expert, of the staff  of the Consolidated M. and S. Co.  Outlay on the plant will be in the  neighborhood of $35,000. The overhead  sprinkling system will be utilized.  Duck Creek, which has a heavy flow,  will be dammed and the water will be  carried by wood-stave and steel pipe  lines to the laterals.

With irrigation this output will be greatly increased and of greater value as it  will enable growers to crowd vines ahead  to a stronger growth following the burning subsequent to harvesting of each  season's crop.  Regatta a Financial Success  While fall fairs are being very freely  adandoned in other localities this season,  the healthy condition of this section is  demonstrated by the determination of  the Wynndel Women's Institute to hold  a fall fair���������the initial event of its kind  to take place in the strawberry metropolis of West Kootenay.  Date set is Sfebtember 21,. with the  splendid Wynndel community hall as the  scene of the exhibition. The showing  will be a very complete one, it is  anticipated, with a fine line of exhibits  from various points in the district. A  most cordial invitation has been extended to growers to enter their products in competition for a splendid  series of merchandise and cash prizes.  The fruit section will have 17 classes  for entry; vegetables, 18; farm produce, 10; home baking, 23; canning, 6;  school 10; needlework, 18; poultry, 1.  There will be a sports' program with a  list of 15 events.  A strong committee of ' the  Wynndel  W. I.   is  hard   at   work   getting   final  arrangements for the fair completed.

Intending Exhibitor's must fill in  entry form provided and send it in  to the Secretary, (Miss) Olga Hagen,  Wynndel, by September 19.  Thanks to the efficiency of the provincial police there has been a general  roundup of the gentlemen believed to be  concerned in the recent epidemic of  burglaries in this vicinity. Last week  Charles W. Garrow and Mike Melinchulf  were taken into custody at Kimberley,  while on Monday Leo Gillett and Oliver  Ellis were arrested at Vernon.  It appears that on Tuesday of last  week H. Dewhirst was driving his car to  Chapman camp and collided with an  auto driven by Garrow and Melinchuk  near that point. As they were strangers  they were questioned closely and acting  on advices from here their car was  searched. A quantity of articles * tallying  with goods disappearing after the  robbery of the Creston Drug & Book  store was found. Constable Hazzard  proceeded to Kimberley and identified  the goods. Other material found included a bunch of tools that had been  reported as missing from a camp up the  road east of Creston,  An outstanding feature of the case  was the assistance given in a photographic way by means of one of the  stolen cameras. It appears that the.  men concerned were rather proud of  their exploit, for they loaded one of the  cameras taken from the drug store with  film, stood in a row with various articles  of adornment and beauty in the shape of  watches, etc. on their persons, and had  a   photograph   taken.

The quartette appeared before Stipendiary Magistrate Mallandine for a  preliminary as this issue of The Review  was going to press.  In keeping with the popular demanu  for novelty on the screen, something new  in the way of film entertainment is  promised with "The Brat," which opens  next Saturday at the Grand Theatre,  with Sally O'Neil in the title role.  Whether this picture should be  classified as a romantic comedy, or a  comedy drama, or a dramatic romance,  is hard to say. It has plenty of action,  a joyous and "different" sort of love  story, bits of sheer pathos, and dozens of  hilariously funny situations���������a melange  that makes it thoroughly enjoyable,  whatever difficulties it offers to classification.  A penniless Cinderella from the Bowery  is taken to the home of a wealthy  author, who is looking for a heroine for  his next novel. Tho girl's dual romance  with tho writer and his younger brother,  thc jealously hcr coming arouses in the  two Bocioty girls who have already  marked the author as the matrimonial  proy, and tie resulting complications all  keep the interest at a high pitch.  Allan Dlnehart, noted Broadway stage  star, who makes his screen debut in the  film, onacts the rolo of the author and  Frank Albortson that of tho brother,  while June Collyer nnd Virginia Cbcrrill  play the two society girls.

The most dangerous hour is between  five and six o'clock on Sunday afternoon. Automobile accidents happen most  frequently in "broad daylight, on clear days, when roads are dry. If the  driver of the car is between 20 and 30 years old, the chances of an accident  taking place are SI per cent, greater than if he is between 40 and 50.  These are some surprising and little known facts about automobile  accidents brought out by an analysis recently completed by United States  insurance statisticians. They relate, of course, to that country, but inasmuch  aa conditions in Canada and the United States j. -e so similar En so many respects it is possible that we would not be far astray if. In thc absence of detailed information relating to Canada, those figures were applied to this  Dominion as well.  What are the causes behind the rapidly increasing hazards of motoring?  In at least nine out of ten automobile accidents, the cause can be traced  directly to an error made either by a driver or a pedestrian.

In the order named, other defects contributed to the accident toll: Lack of chains on slippery roads, blowouts and punctures, one or  both headlights out, defective steering gear, glaring headlights, taillights out  or obstructed.  If you ask most people under what road conditions a majority of auto  accidents occur, you will probably be told: "Icy roads" or "wet streets." As  a matter of fact, the insurance company experts, found that only three per  cent, of the 1931 accidents occurred on Icy surfaces and less than  16 per  cent, on wet surfaces.      In 81 per cent, of all mishaps, the roads were dry.  Also, 85 out of every 100 accidents resulting in deaths occurred under clear  weather conditions. And most accidents happened in daylight.-  When a motorist starts en a  ride, if he meets with an accident,  the  chances that it will occur before he gets out of the driveway are one to 200.  The chances of its occurring on a railroad crossing are slightly greater; of  It������ happening on a bridge, one to 100; of its taking place on a curve, one to  25; on a state highway, one to five, and,at a street crossing, one to two and  a half.

So far as age is concerned, the most hazardous time for automobile  driving is under 20. The accident record of drivers under this age, last year,  was 39 per cent, worse than the average. The record of those between 20  and 30 .was 29 per cent, worse than the average; between 30 and 40, three  per cent, better than the average; between 40 and 50, 29 per cent, better;  and  beyond 50,  36 per cent, better.  While it is still a disputed point whether the Increasing average speed  of automobiles and the lifting of the speed limit on country roads is causing  more accidents, the investigation shows undeniably that the stepping up of  speeds has increased the seriousness of accidents when they have occurred.  Incidentally, too, researches just made by the Chicago Motor Club reveal that  travelling a mile a minute is three times as expensive as motoring 45 miles  an hour.   The extra 15 miles an hour trebles the upkeep co3ta of tha car.  With such facts In mind as have been established by this survey, motor  car drivers should govern themselves accordingly, and by so doing they maji  save themselves much sorrow. First, check ovor your car for defects which  It has been shown are the chief cause of accidents resulting from mechanical weaknesses. Then note the principal causes of accidents due to the  driver himself, where and when they are most likely to talco place, and the  steps that should ba taken to prevent them taking place. If an accident takes  place, the responsibility is, first and foremost, your own; secondly, the  driver of the other car; thirdly, the condition of your own car; fourthly, the  condition of the other fellow's car. Therefore, it is up to you to prevent an  accident.  ful masthead lights for the guidance  of mariners, has been announced by  the lighthouse service of the Department of Commerce.

Murray, general manager of the Alberta Pacific  Grain Company Limited, and at one  time executive of the TJnited Grain  Growers.  In a statement, Mr. Murray said:  "It is ridiculous to suggest, as press  despatches from Ottawa during the  past few days indicate, that the entire grain trade of Canada and grain  growers of the west consider that a  preferential tariff in favor of Canadian wheat in the Britisb market  would be of no advantage to Canada.  "Confidential briefs, Indicating such  a view, may have been submitted to  the TDominion. Government by the authorized spokesmen of various bodies,  but it is absurd to assume there is  no contrary opinion among those they  purport to represent. The official  representations made by grain trade  spokesmen are not the views of all  grain dealers any more than the  wheat pools and provincial government express the views of aQ farmers in the west.  "Almost everyone can agree that a  quota system would be cumbersome;  and useless, but a preferential tariff  is a different matter. Personally, I  believe the free entry of Canadian  wheat into the British market, by far  the biggest importing market in the  world, with a duty against non-empire  wheat, would be a distinct advantage  . in marketing our Canadian crop and  over a period of years would assist  in obtaining better prices for our  western grain growers.

An- exception was made regarding  grain.

"It seems to me unfortunate, particularly at this time, when wheat  growers in western Canada need all  tbe assistance and encouragement  they can get, that spokesmen who at  best supposedly represent less than  half the farmers in the west, should  take the position that a preferential  tariff on our wheat in the British  market is a matter of supreme indifference to them'. .  "Whatever the views of our western farmers may have- been on this  matter 15 or'20 years ago, I do not  believe they are today indifferent to  the advantages that would accrue to  them from such a preference.

SEEKING ANOTHER WHITE  ELEPHANT  At a time when every effort is  claimed to be required to conserve national financial resources,  it is hard to figure out just why  Ottawa should wish to get tied in  on such a costly and unnecessary  undertaking as the St. Lawrence  waterways project.  Canada has a huge elephant of  the white (or is it red?) variety in  the shape of the Canadian  National. Now it seems that a  mate is sought for it in the waterways deal.  Even the suggestion that the  electrical power to be developed  has little value; the east has  more power on tap than it knows  what to do with for a decade or  two to come. Existing transportation facilities are more than  ample for all requirements for the  next generation. Present agencies should be given a chance to  survive instead of facing them  with added competition when  such competition wiii not be  worth a continental to either consumers or producers.  If there is any benefit on  minor points, the States will get  most of it if the proposed deal is  ratified by the U. S. Senate.  Fortunately, it i? most likely the  worthy senators will give it the  six months' hoist on general principles.  GIVE US A CHANGE PLEASE!

In the  case of  military spies it is often necessary for  them  to memorize  secret  orders  so  that they cannot be caught with written evidence on their persons. A Mme.  ents can make their contract, then  the defender must know how large a  penalty he is going to incur, and that  knowledge constitutes the second basic factor.  It is necessary for the overbidding  side to closely approximate, through  their knowledge of their combined  holdings, together with a knowledge  of the combined holdings of the adversaries, the number of tricks they  will take when playing the defensive  contract. It is assumed always in this  discussion that the defender's contract has been doubled.  The following table shows the penalties which are allowable to defenders in order to save game.

If set more than three tricks the defenders show a loss.  To save second game, when the defenders are not vulnerable, a set of  four tricks doubled may be taken. If  the set is less than four tricks, the defenders show a profit,, if more than  four tricks a loss.  To save rubber game a set of two  tricks doubled may be taken.

A young man who asked a college professor why the text did not  3ay that the sins of the fathers -were  visited upon the children to the  seventh and eighth generations as  wel* as to the third and fourth,, received this answer: "Because there  will be no seventh or eighth generations.

This Burglar Alarm Works  Sounds Siren, Explodes a Bomb and  Imprisons Thief  The smash-and-grab jewel thief,  who has infested England for the past  few months, has met his equal in  science.  Neither the vigilance of the police,  nor the precautions of jewellers have  succeeded in diminishing Uie number  of these brazen robberies. But It -will  take the best criminal brains In the  world to carry on in the face of a  new precautionary invention.  A demonstration of the invention  was given before jewellers at South-  end-On-Sea. A jeweller turned himself into a robber for the purpose of  the demonstration.  A hole large enough for a man to  pass was made in a jewelry shop by  smashing it in with a blackjack. Then  a number of melodramatic things  happened. '  First a deafening siren went off  which could be heard for three-quarters of s mile around. A *"&s bomb  exploded, followed by a smoke bomb  which cast a screen about the jewels  and blinded the raider.  As though this were not enough a  secret "steel panel snapped across the  window, imprisoning the raider and  protecting the jewels.

But she had courage enough to face  the consequences of that refusal, to  stand up to the clatter of poisonous  tongues that must ensue; and trust  enough to bank on the loyalty of her  real f rt&nds, knowing it would be the  same splendid loyalty that she herself would have given to any one  of them in like circumstances. For  Jean was a woman who won more  than mere lip. service from those who  called themselves her friends.  Burke had never been  more mis-  faVan     _i_    "Sit.a    nat/.Kila'f./kn*.    -6-t**__i    y������r-_<*y*  he counted upon forcing her hand by  the mere fear of scandal. But none  the less he held her���������and held her in  the meshes of a far stronger and  mora binding net, had he but realized  it.   _      . , . Y    .,  Looking back upon the episode  from which her present predicament  had actually sprung, Jean could almost have found it in her heart to  smile at the relative importance  which, at the time, that same incident  had assumed in her eyes.  It !_ad seemed to her, then, that for  Blaise ever to hear that she had been  locked in a room with Burke, had  spent an uncounted hour or so with  him at the "honeymooners7 inn"  would be the uttermost calamity that  ��������� could befall her.  He would never-believe that it had  been by no will of hers���������so she had  thought at the,time���������and that.fierce  lover's jealousy which had been the  origin 6f their ojiarrel} and of all the  subsequent -mutual misunderstandings  and aloofness, would be roused to  fresh life, and his distrust of her be-  . come something infinitely more difficult to combat.  But compared with the present sit*  uatlon which confronted her, the happenings 6f that past day faded into  insignificance. She stood, now, face to  face with a choice such as surely few  women had been forced to make.  Whichever way she decided, whichever of the two alternatives she accepted, her happiness must pay the  price. Nothing she could ever say or  do, afterwards, would set her right in  the eyes of tlie man whose belief in her  meant everything. Whether she agreed  to marry Burke, returning home in the  odour of sanctity within the next  hour or two, or whether she refused  and returned the next morning���������free,  but with the Incontrovertible fact of  . a night spent at Burke's bungalow,  /done- with him, behind her, Blaise  would never trust or believe in her  love for him again.  And if she promised to marry,  Burke and so save her reputation, It  must automatically mean the end of  everything between herself and the  man she loved���������the dropping of an  Iron curtain compared with which tho  wall built up out of their frequent  misunderstandings In tlie past seemed  nomothlng as trifling and as easily  demolished as a card house.  On the other hand, if she risked hor  __,_��������� _..._. .luiiimm -rim "   ii    '' ' YI^YY^II.^ZST')  good name and kept her freedom, she  would be equally as cut off from him.  Not that she feared that Blaise would  take the blackest view of the alf air-  she was sure that he believed in her  enough not to misjudge T^erT^aisf the  world might do���������but he would inevitably .think that she had deliberately  chosen to spend an afternoon on thei  Moor' alone with Bhrke-T-('pIaying  with fire" exactly as he had warned  her not to, and getting .'..her-;fingers  burnt in consequence���������and he would  accept it as a sheer denial of the silent: pledge of love understood which  bound them together. \  : He would never trusit her again���������-  nor forgive" her. No man could. Love's  loyalty, rocked by the swift currents  of jealousy and passion, is not of the  same quality as the steady loyalty of  friendship���������that calm, unshakable  confidence which may exist between  man and man or woman and woman.  Moreover���������and here alone was  where the fear of gossip troubled her  ���������even if the inconceivable happened  and Blaise forgave and trusted her  again, she could not go to him with a  slurred name, give him herself���������when  the gift was outwardly tarnished.

Then bitterly: "I wonder  why you even offer me a choice -<���������  when you know that it is really no  choice."  "Why? Because I swore to you  that you should give me what I want  ���������that I wouldn't take even a kiss  from you again by force. But"���������unevenly���������"I didn't know what it meant  ���������the waiting!"  Outside, the mist had thickened  into fog, curtaining the windows. The  light had dimmed to a queer, glimmering dusk, changing the values of  things, and out of the shifting  shadows her white face, with its scarlet line of scornful mouth, gleamed at  him,���������elusive, tantalising as a flower  that sways out of reach. In the uncertain half-light which struggled In  through the dulled window-panes there  was something provocative, maddening���������a kind of ethercalizcd lure of the  senses in the wavering, shadowed  loveliness of her. The man's pulses  leaped; something within him slipped  its leash.  "Kiss .mo!" he demanded hoarsely.  "Don't keep me waiting any longer.  Give mc your lips . . . . now . . . .  now. .  .  .  ."  Sho sprang, aside from him, warding him on?. Her eyes stormed at him  out of her white face.  "You promised!" sho cried, her  voice sharp with fear. "You promised!"  The tension of tlio next moment  strained hor nerves to breaking-point.  Then he fell baclcv- Slowly his arms  dropped to his sides without touching  her, his hands clenching with the effort that it cost him.  "You're right," he said, breathing  quickly. "I promised. I'll koop my  promise." Then, vohomently: "Jean,  why won't you let mo take yoti home ?  I could put tho car right in ten minutes. Como hornet"  Thoro was unmtstakablo appeal In  Ed*.

"How  do you know.that I shall not give you  tlie" pledge you ask merely in order  to get home���������and then decline to keep  it? I think"���������reflectively���������"I should  be quite justified in the circumstances.".  He smiled a little and shook his  head. _T  "No," he    said    quietly.    "I'm    not  afraid of that.

A   PRODUCT  OF HAtwiLiON FiwM  Lives there a woman, in apart_nen_,dup_ex  or home, who has not at some timie or  .--other reluctantly foregone fish, cabbage,  and cauliflower because of the odors they  give off when being cooked? Or who has  not suffered from other people close by  who cooked these foods regardless.  Canapar entirely does away ^ with this  annoyance. More than that, it -actually  improves fl^yor and food value.JCookins  in Canapar parallels the famous French  method of simmering and confining food  and its flavours to the closed casserole:  Canapar comes In large sheets, in a handy-  size package. When boiling vegetables  you simply wet thc sheet of Canapar and  make a bag similar to a pudding bag. If  you are steaming them you line your  steamer with Canapar, arrange food and  seasoning, and fold back corners pf the  Canapar to prevent steam from -dripping  back.  Boiled or steamed fish is particularly  delicious done this way. No fishy odor  in the kitchen, no gummy kettle to clean-  When roasting meat, line ihe pan^ with  Canaoar. It prevents the fats and juices  from burning, and eliminates scouring of  the pan afterwards.  Canapar saves fuel. You can cook three  vegetables simultaneously in the same  saucepan with it, without intermingling;  of flavors. And it is very economical.  Just rinse the sheet after uaina it, han*  it on the towel rack to dry- Use it over  nnd over again.  Lots of women use Canapar for a dish  cloth���������it is so silky nnd sa.iafactory and  does not spread lint. This isja particularly  good use if you happen to pierce the sheet  of Canapar while testing the food during  the cooking of it.

With refea-en.ee to the interview given  by % local gasoline retailer last week re  garding the gasoline price situation, railway officials here point out that where  tank cars are routed from coast refineries  to Creston via the main line, Golden and  the Kootenay Central, such routing is  K.ven to expedite delivery, as main line  freight service is much better than over  th*? Kettle Valley, notwithstanding the  fact that the latter is the more direct  route. It Ls ^oitited out that no saving  ia freight charges is possible through  shipping via the K.V., as rates from the  coast are the same either way. It is  desired to correct any impression that  main line routing of tank cars has anything to do with gasoiine retail prices in.  this vicinity.
