With  three courts available each year had  a  tournament of its own for three rounds,  at  iWhich   stage  the  semi-finals  were  reached, in which the 1932 talent was  eliminated and the final provided quite  a thrilling struggle from which the older  hands at the game emerged winner by a  margin of 15-11, in the persons of R.

The 7.30 game Saw an  upset for the  Imperial   Groceteria,    who    had  been  favoured to win over the.- Bearcats, but  who were out-played and  out-scored in  the overtime period to 1 _se 20-23.   The  Bearcats are thus tied  with the Centipedes for the top berth  in the league.  The boys in orange just -could not get going, their defense especially being woefully   weak.   Time  after time, Charlie  Holmes and Dobie Macdonald were left  unchecked to take long passes and sink  field    goals   without opposition.   Bus.  Ross    played   a  nice pme afc centre;  while Herb  and Art Couling. together  with Andy Miller starred for the grocers.  The    second   game   -waa   even more  exciting.   The Meds, fielding only five  men. ran the Ex High off their feet in  the first half to lead U 4. i The  third  quarter saw  3  points  scored for  the  Meds and 8 for the Ex-High,   In th������������  last    quarter   the    latter    held    the  Pharmacists    and  san Is -   tho   winn in g  baskets.   Final   score   was  10-14... For  the  losers,   Marjorie Levirs scored 11  points, but was ably stop ported by the  remainder of the team.   There ia not a  particle  of doubt that even with one  fresh   substitute the score would have  been   reversed.

Reports indicate that, generally speaking",  the elections this year were contested with a vigor surpassing that which  usually characterizes such contests. This, no doubt, is but another result  of the difficult aad critical times through which the world is passing-, the  inevitable outcome of which is discontent, dissatisfaction with whatever is  done, no matter what its nature may. be, or who may be responsible for the  doing of it. Another factor accounting for the keenness of many contests  was the entry of a political party in Provincial and Federal affairs into the  realm of municipal affairs, thus introducing a new element, and in some  cases a new bitterness, into municipal and school board elections.  It is no doubt true that at no time can men and women, clothed with  responsibility by their fellow citizens to direct public policies and manage  public affairs, please all classes. No matter what they may do. or may leave  undone, certain people will he dissatisfied. This, however, is especially true  at a time like the present when all governing bodies are confronted with the  two-fold task on exercising the strictest economy on the one hand, and of  being faced with the necessity of making extraordinary expenditures on the  other hand. Both these things must be done,���������the first because of failing  revenues resulting from the inability of matty people to pay taxes, and the  second because prevailing conditions make it obligatory to provide work or  relief for countless numbers of people. The result is a demand for more and  more so-called "free" services on the part of governments, for people who  liave not the means to obtain these services for themselves, at a time when  governments cannot possibly get the money to pay for the aforesaid "free"  services.  Dissatisfaction and discontent, ending in unreasonableness on the part  of many, is the inevitable result. Those things which many people are  demanding- if granted, mean the imposition of still heavier burdens on  Others who are making a valiant struggle to keep their own heads above  ���������water and not become charges on the community. Those whom the citizenship made responsible for administration of public policies and affairs thus  found themselves between two fires, and, with their hands tied financially,  making it impossible for them to do many of the things they undoubtedly  would have been glad to do were it only possible- '  Some experienced and conscientious public servants have, as a���������-_esult  of this general dissatisfaction, been defeated, their places on public bodies  being taken by others, some of whom, again, have captured the popular  fancy and support as a result of more or less sweeping promises which they  will soon discover they, too, with all the best intention in the world, will be  unable to fulfill.  Service on municipal councils, school boards, and other public bodies is,  at best and under the most favorable circumstances, a more or less thankless task, while under present prevailing adverse conditions it is even more  ao, inviting, as it does, little but abuse, misrepresentation of motives and  acts, and loss of whatever popularity a person may have possessed. Such  service also involves no small sacrifice on the part of the person, accepting  public office. In these days it requires every moment of one's time and  energies to keep their own personal business matters in solvent shape.  .. eglect of them means diaster.  But service on public bodies is a public duty. It is a duty that must be  discharged by some one, and those who are willing to make the sacrifice are  deserving of the thanks and cordial goodwill of their fellow citizens, regardless of the fact that their every act may not meet with approval.  Therefore, now that the smoke of our municipal and school board  battles has floated away, now that the decisions of the majority have been  rendered, it behooves all citizens of good will, and loyal to the democratic  Institutions of this country, to get behind their representatives whoever  they may be, and, irrespective of the fact whether they were their personal  choice or not, give them a helping hand. Let carping, criticism, now cease.  Let all personalities be forgotten. Rather, let one and all stand unitedly in  eupport of their elected representatives and work harmoniously together  with one single purpose of doing the best possible under existing circumstances, helping each other, and thereby helping all.  And in so doing greater consideration may well be given to this important fact which boo many people are rather inclined in these troublous dayg  to forget, namely, that more can be learned from the experiences of the past  than from all tlie text books of theories or the idealistic visions of inexperienced and untried visionaries. What is good in the past wo should retain,  While that which, through experience, we have learned to be weak and faulty  should be remedied or disregarded, being substituted by what that same  experience has shown to be needed, rather than to invoke some purely  theoretical idea which, when put to the tost of practical operation, is more  likely than not to land us in a deeper morass than the one from which wc  are striving to extricate ourselves.  Woman   Is   Honored  By   French   Legion  Old Tradition; Has Been Shattered  ���������'���������-.' For Second Time ������  , An, old tradition which dates back  to Napoleon and which kept French  women from rising in grade in the  Legion of Honor has been shattered  by the award of the rank of Commander of the Legion to a woman, for  the second,.time in history.  Mme. Philippe de Vilmorin, millionaire business woman ahd one of ,the  world's greatest dealers in seeds and  grains, has been promoted from. Officer to Commander, joining in that  rank Countess de Noailles, poetess,  the only other woman Commander in  the Legion's history.  "  The promotion came in the distribution of 600 ribbons and rosettes of  the Legion of Honor to reward services rendered towards the success of  the Colonial Exposition. Madame de  Vilmorin had created the floral decoration of the exposition grounds.  Widowed during the .war,'-Mme, de  Vilmorin left the front/where she  had won citations as a war nurse,  and took charge of the 200-year-old  grain firm.  She travelled through Africa, Indo-  China, Java, Egypt, Australia and  tho orient, to select and improve the  seeds of tobacco, rice, coffee, peanuts,  and other colonial crops. She operates  agronomic laboratories and largely  was responsible for saving the French,  cut-flower industry from ruinous  Dutch and Italian competition.

The building collapsed when a terrific explosion occurred ih the main  directly beneath it. Ten persons were  trapped but firemen ahd internes from  the city hospitals 'dived into the  wreckage and pulled out the family  Of Frederick Verrelles and a family  named Caron.  They were taken to hospital suffering from cuts, bruises and burns but  were not seriously injured.  Altogether some 20 people were injured as the explosions ripped through  one street after, another, damaging  miles of sewers and tee.ring up miles  of. street paving in an area 10 block-  long by eight blocks wide.  The district affected is bounded by  Defleurihaont street, St. Lawrence  boulevard, Jean Talon street and St.  Hubert street. Damage estimates  ������ould not be gauged early, but the disaster meant work for' thousands of  unemployed in effecting repairs.  The cause of the disaster was unknown. The Montreal Light, Heat and  Power Consoi-dated issued an official  ���������tatement advancing the theory that  the flrst explosion was caused by a  sewer explosion of gasoline or other  inflammable material and that the  blast broke a gas main.  More than 100,000 huddled terror-  stricken- in their homes for three  hours as the explosions roared out  one after another, ripped up paving,'1  smashed .windows and culminated  in. the collapse of the three-storey  building which immediately caught  fire. The building is situated at the  corner of -Defleurimont and St. Valier  streets.  A manhole at the intersection of  St Denis and Belanger streets shot  20 feet into the air. .A terrific roar  followed. Sheets of flame belched  from manholes for three-quarters of  a mile and the district was covered  with a pall of greasy, black smoke.  That was the beginning of the city's  worst sewer explosion disaster. For  the next three hours, blast after blast  struck more and more fear into the  bearts of a sixth of the city's population.  ' All over Montreal the blasts cou'.d  be heard.- -Firemen from. 22 stations  ' rushed to ..the district. Over 200 police  ���������were concentrated in the area. Ambulances clanged.

Ot  RUNS UPSTAIRS AT 92  Daughter's  Pride  In  Active  Father  "I feel in duty bound," writes  Mrs. A. J. W., "to express my  gratitude for the marvellous results  my father has obtained from Kruschen  Salts. They should really be called  ������������������Miracles." He is ninety-two years  old, and is as fit as a fiddle. " He can  nip about, and run up and down  stairs. His friends marvel why it Is  he is always alert, and- never feels  slack. He always tells them the  reason, "my Tegular daily dose of  Kruschen Salts every morning." We  always recommend Kruschen Salts  to all our friends. To my idea no  family should be without it."  ��������� (Mrs.) A. J. W.

Lady Astor is announced. This comprises the social  settlement and. institution Renown, aa  Virginia House, which Lord Astor has  decided to hand over to the city.  The ;_ yfirgtoli "House Settlement,  which was* founds* by Lord and Lady  Astbr many "years ago, is situated  amid .old. slum, property and close to  the spot where Katherine of Aragon  spent her first night on English soil  when she came to marry Henry VIII.  It has become a most successful centre for all manner of social^ recreational, educational and religious purposes, and the buildings comprise a  large hall, classrooms, gymnasium,  kitchens, library and so forth.  The most recent addition, opened  by Lady Astor is a large nursery at  the Looe St. side of the settlement.  It is equipped, among other things,  with five or six rocking horses, several dolls' houses, go-carts, perambulators and other similar things dear to  the hearts of children, some 50 of  whom may be found there, on any  night of the five nights of the week  on which the nursery is open to them.  Robert Sloane Gourlay, SI, piano  manufacturer and for years one of  Toronto's outstanding business men,  died recently in this eastern city.

An Effective Background  World's Grain Show Building Beautiful Setting;, For Exhibits ,  . The World's Grain Show Building is  gradually giving promise of the very  beautiful background that will be afforded to the exhibits of grains and  grasses from all parts of the world at  the congress to be held in Regina  next year. Long rows of gorgeous red  pillars will be topped by a frieze of  feathery grains patterned to bring  out the contrasts of rich yellow  wheats with the dark green of tbe  brome grass or the pale tints of the  ripe oats against the bronze of the  flax.  Along the ceiling, each electric light  fixture is set into a formal design  likewise done in contrasting tones of  plants while just below the ceiling  is a mural showing Canadian industries. The immense spaces of this  great building are being divided up  into exhibit stalls for this and that  country and state.  One corner is set asLde for a great  replica of the E. P. Ranch at High  River. The back curtain is already in  place-and the rivers, and main geographic features of the ranch are already outlined on the floor, while the  mountains are painted into the background.  The work was pushed as rapidly as  possible before it got too cold for the  workmen to stay there for it would  require a forest fire to heat the place  sufficiently for comfortable working  in the winter time. A score of girls  who are engaged making the designs  for the pillars and walls have been  moved to an office uptown.  In the centre of the long hall is a  canopied spot where the champions of  all classes will be displayed.  Preparation of the report of Major-  General D. C.

Upon their return they rejoined  Jesus at some well-known spot on the  western shore of the Sea of Galilee,  probably at Capernaum, and reported  all they had done and all they had  taught. They had been under a great  strain, their experience had been exciting and exhausting, and Jesus proposed that they all go aw-ay for a  short resC Capernaum was crowded  With pilgrims on their , way tothe  Passover at Jerusalem.

They entered their boat arid started for a  "desert place" on the eastern shore  of the Lake (as John tells us), near  Bethsaida (as told by Luke). By a  "desert place" is not meant an arid  waste, but a lonely place, a spot far  from the haunts of men.

Approximately 760  patients are under constant treatment  at these three centres, but thanks  to the preventive work rendered possible by the sale of Christmas Seals,  tlie death rate from tuberculosis was  lower and the number of new cases  less in 1931 than in the previous yoar.  During the last ten years the death  rate among the white population of  Saskatchewan has been reduced from  40 to 28 per 100,000 population. In the  year 1031 Canada dug 7,627 graves  for tuberculosis patients,  and in thc same period  Saskatchewan dug 335  graves.

The per diem cost  in 1929 was $3.02; in 1930, $2.92; in  1931, $2.65; and the estimated cost for  1932 is $2.55.  This, however, is not enough and, if  tlie disease is to be stamped out, preventive ' work must be carried on.  There is no assistance given by the  municipalities, or by the Government,  to do preventive work. The sale of  Christmas seals provides the revenue  for this purpose. The old saying "prevention is better than cure" applies  with particular force in this connection. Preventive work is the most important phase of anti-tubercular work  and this is financed by voluntary contributions. As a result of the sale of  Christmas Seals last year,  6,914 persons ln Saskatchewan received examination  or other attention/ The  money raised by the sale  of Christmas Seals helps  finance the care of newborn babeg whose mothers  were tuberculous; belps,  pay for the examination of  those who have been in  ������ contact  with   tuberculous  patients; helpa ftnunce the examination of thoso suspected by. tholr physicians of having- tuberculosis, and helpa  carry on an educational campaign,  .1.

She asked pointedly,  "When your terni is up next inorith,  are you going to':re-enlist or not?"  Alan knew that Elizabeth was determined, heart and soul, that he  should get out of the Mounted and  take a good salaried position down in  Victoria which Colonel Steele, commander of his regiment in the World  War, had been wanting him to accept.  But he was loath to take a job on a  .friendship basis; he preferred to stand  on the more self-respecting ground of  honest work honestly performed. And  to leave this land where he had found  freedom" and happiness was an intolerable prospect. He loved this northern Mackenzie country as intensely as  he hated the hectic stifling oppression  of city life; and his comradeship with  men like Bill Hardsock was precious  to him.  If he tore himself away from  all  this, if he became a mere cog in an  ���������industrial machine, he would "be up-  jrooted and. miserably unhappy.  But as things stood, he was in a  "ljlind alley. Haskell was riding him  hard for personal reasons; a rank injustice had been done-hiba.. ,, .There  y/ere a. dozen powerful arguments on  the other side, too.  After a moment he said slowly: "I  rflUppose I oughtn't to sign on again.  .But it's hard to decide, Elizabeth^'  "What is  there  to  decide  about?  THow can you tolerate .this situation  you're ini ?- You're a subordinate, taking orders; you're liable to be demoted  ���������any day; you're compelled to do another man's work for him! You don't  think   your   situation   is   going   to  change? You aren't expecting a commission any more now, I hope? Then*  why under heaven do you want to  atay?"  Alan   started   to   answer,   but   ho  checked the words. His reasons were  .deep   and     intangible     things���������his  friendships, the freedom he'd found  : Itere, thc sense of being rooted In the  country, his ramified duties that held  him with invisible bonds, his unwillingness to desert comrades when they  . uorely needed him, his reluctance" to  . give the Impression of having quit  Just because a commission was not  forthcoming,       ^ '  IXtv Lydliii E. Pinkham's Ven������ubla Compoundl I  Down on the jriver bank Bill Hard-  sock came skimming full-tilt up to the  landing, swferved T the canoe around  in a complete circle to stop it, leaped  out upon the planking, tossed the  painter to a sleepy ������Loucheux. He did  not seem to notice Inspector Haskell  only a couple rods away. At a lope he  headed UP the terrace, straight for  Alan's cabin, as though Alan was  the man to hear his news..  "If you had nothing to turn- to/'  Elizabeth persisted, "it. would be a  , little different. But you've got a position waiting, at four times your pres-,  ent salary, with advancement sure,  with a chance to make even more on  the side." She broke off: "But what's  the use going- over and over these  arguments? We've gone over them a  dozen times. I didn't come for that."  - She paused a second to emphasize  her next words. "If you intend to  stay in the Mounted, I wish you would  tell  me   so   frankly,   so   that  I   can  plan "  It- was an ultimatum. She meant it  so; Alan understood it so. But she  saw too that it had antagonized him  a little. Though she must be firm now,  she must head off any antagonism.  Dropping her coldness, she got up  and stood beside him where he sat on  the corner of the table.  "ALan! Don't you realize how intolerable it is for me-���������not being with  you two hours in a whole week ? And  if we were married, he���������Haskell���������  he'd make it even worse.

If I'd repulse him, he'd���������he'd  take it out on you!  I've got to let  'him--?'YY.:,.Y  A slow red crept into Alan's face  and his fist clenched. He had wondered, sometimes with nameless suspicions, why she allowed Haskell to  be so much   in   her   company,   Mrs.  Alan Was Not the  Fool to  Believe  Haskell Wan Blufflna.

Here was the reason! It had never occurred to him  that Elizabeth, had been permitting it  for his sake.  He thought: 'T can't blame her for  not wanting to live here in the North,  Her brother died here; she hasn't any  friends; these folks don't understand  her. If she want;s to live in a" city,  that's as natural, aa much her right,  as my wanting to live in this North  country. She'd like to have pleasures,  clothes, and other things we'll have  when I take that Victoria job.  Wouldn't any girl want them?"  Bill Hardsock came past the alcove  window, hatlesa, excited. Elizabeth  saw him, and realized her talk with  Alan was broken. But she did hot  greatly care^ She had given him. hor  ultimatum, sho had headed off any  antagonism; and what she said about  Haskell had galled him as nothing  else could have done, - V  She luilfcrwhispored, running her Angara through his hair, "You've been  hero less than an hour, we've had less  than ton mlnutos, together, and how������������������  now something else happens and  you'll be gone again." S\ie kissed htm  iquickly and turned away,  As Bill Hardsock stamped into tho  cabin he burst out: "Oh Lord, Alan,  Sammy-Moll sure popped down river!  The Midnight Sun, bringing up a raft  of furs from the Ramparts country,  and gold dust, too, a whole wad of it  from the Pool and Arctic Rod Plac-  ,  . Down there, mouth of the  in   broad   daylight,   and   robbed  her  there, right this close to us^���������"  "Robbed her?   Wh-aa-t!"  "That's, what they did. They came  over the   side like as  if they were  ord'nary trappers;   they got a clear  drop on the crowd, and had the ruin  of the boat for better*n half an hour!"  Alan  leaped  to   the   all-important  question.     "They didn't escape, Bill?  They didn't get by with-a trick like  that?" ,  .  Scarcely - hearing him, ' Bill kept  pouring out his news. "They took  more'n three hundred pounds of dust,  and sorted but half a dozen packs of  the best and lightest furs. Alan, they  shot and killed Jimmy Montgomery!  He was the only one that drawed a  gun against 'em. and a rifle got him.  cold."  Alan's face went pale. The news of  the robbery had been dazing enough  to him; but now, this crashing shock  of Jimmy's death . , . His lips fashioned silently, "They killed Jimmy.  .... A rifle bullet. . . . He was the  only one who drew a gun���������" But he  could not speak; he could only stare  at Bill.  "And if Father Claverly hadn't  stepped in and helped stop a rush,  Alan, they'd have shot mp the whole  deck. They slung the dust and furs  into their canoes, and . . . Did they  get away? What brought me busting  up the river ? I hope they did���������^clean,  slicker'n a whistle I"  In the pause then, Alan fought to  shake off his daze. He had to make  the plans, fling out a patrol, get into  action. Tit was all in his hands-���������the  pursuit, the capture, the whole heavy  responsibility. ���������  He demanded: "Who were they?  Trappers, did you say?"  "Un't know who, Alan. But strangers. Five whites and one'breed."  "Strangers? Can't be! Not in this  country."  "But that's what they were. Nobody  on the* boat had ever seen a single  one of 'em."  Alan did not believe this, but for  the moment he passed it up.  "Which way did they go? Have  motors on their canoes?"  "No. Paddle; craft. They whipped  up the Big Alooska."  For a little space Alan stood thinking. Why had those bandits staged  their robbery there at the .mouth of  the Alooska, instead of farther down  north, at some lonely reach along the  Mackenzie? In an instant he saw the  answer to that question. They had  chosen with an eye to a quick escape,  an escape to the best hiding place in  all Mackenzie territory.  As he-imagined them whipping up  the Big Alooska, whipping up that  lonely spruce-buried river past Mac-  Millan's trading post, his thoughts  leaped to Joyce, and a fear came into  his eyes.  Echoing this very fear, Bill said i  "They'll have to pass MacMillan's  place, Alan. Ten chances . to one,  Dave's gone out somewhere after  spring poultry and Joyce is there all  by herself, .  .  ,  ."  "But maybe they won't stop," Alan  argued. His words were more a prayer for Joyce. "They'll probably try to  sneak past. ... .*'He broke 'pit:  "Bill,, go down to barracks, find Ped,  tell him to get the launch in shape to  travel. While you're doing that, I'll  go tell-Haskell.1'  Halfway down the slope Alan came  upon Constable Larry Younge, who  was spre adlng^ Haskell's bed clothing  on tlie grassy terrace to sun.  An older man, past forty, a native  of this Waterwaya country, Larry had  spent his boyhood years living with  Crcos and Chipewyans; and by easy  odds he was the bOBt bush detective In  the whole division.

Waiting for. another  month's pay so he could buy out of  the Mounted, Larry was going about  his "squawwork" with stoical face,  chalking up his personal score against  the day when he would be out of service and could settle with Haskell in  man-to-man fashion.  Alan bade him: "Larry, drop that.  "Go and help Bill out. He'll tell you  what's up."  " ��������� *"   *    m   ���������*���������<-.;��������� * ": * '  It was rare that Inspector Haskell  allowed bis temper to get the upper  hand. He had learned self-control in  the hard army school, and he considered that any exhibition of temper  was a plebeian thing. But When Alan  Baker came into the cabin, Haskell  was thoroughly and hotly angered.  A dozen things had happened this  morning to irritate him.     Constable  Whipple, his   stool   pigeon,    a   thin  clerkish recruit whom he had brought  along to Endurance, had repeated sey?;  eral     infuriating   jokes   about him  which the men were tossing back and  forth in barracks.

And Just now through the open  door he had soon Baker order Larry  Younge to drop work assigned by a  superior olllcer and do something else.  (To Bo Continued).
