The High Boys made a determined  bid for victory in the first half, with  lanky Sid Scott and Jaclc" Young using  their height to good advantage, and for  a time it looked as if they might  succeed. As foul succeeded foul, however, and rough checking increased, first  Christie of the grocers and then-Scott of  High School left the floor on personals.

The  Dominoes had the best of the play ina  very rough battle, the Highfliers  victory being largely due to the spectacular shooting of Dot Palmer. Eva La-  LaBelle and Theo.

This fund contributes to the upkeep of  the diocese of Kootenay, which makes  grants in aid of its poorer parishes.  The rector aptly expressed the keen  appreciation of the congregation in referring to the splendid  service of A. A. J.  Collis, who for many years has presided  at the organ with conspicuous ability.  Tho rector, before adjournment, gave a  resume of the activities of the combined  parishes of Kimberley and Creston, and  expressed  optimism   as  to  the future.

From the faceoff the puck travelled  into the Yahk goal territory, and after a  long fight on the Yahk side of  ther blue  line the puck was finally lodged in the  nets by a quick snap shot by Neil Crane.  In the second period the battle was  hard and honors were very even> with  the score standing one all at the halfway  station, the period winding up with the  heavier Yahk talent crowding the 'Creston netiehder hard just as the bell rang.  In the third period Creston went into  tLe lead by a speedy- jush by "Shorty"  LaBalle, T.'ho scored from- a" hard position.

Showed   His   .Power   Wlicn  English  I<ady Was Cheated By  Watchmaker  ��������� An English lady bought a lovely  watch txk Rome, and paid ������35 for it.  Proud of her buy, she took it to a  London *;hop to have it appraised before Insuring: It. The jeweler told her  the watch might be worth a pound,  but no great bargain at that.  ���������Enraged, the English lady could  think of only one thing- to do. She  sat down and wrote direct to Mussolini, tilling of the deception and adding' bitterly that she didn't think ruling such, a people was anything to  brag  a'bout.  In  a  couple  of  weeks,  In these days when so much is being- said ftnd written about plans, and  systems, and machines, and institutions, it becomes all the more necessary  that sight should not be lost of the most important of all factors in our  individual and community life, in fact in our present day civilization, and  that is the human factor.  Man has demonstrated that he can invent a machine and so improve it  that it is almost perfect in its operation and in doing what is expected of it,  with the result that, when it does fail, that failure is to be attributed in the  vast majority of instances to the person who is in control and directing the  operation of the machine. In other words, it is the human factor not the  machine that is found to be weak and faulty and breaks down under stress  iuivi   ul   emergencies.  For example, if a study is made of the records of automobile accidents  it will be found that the majority of accidents is not due to poor tires,  faulty brakes, poor construction or materials used in any part of the car  or even to bad roads and adverse weather conditions, but to the drivers of  cars. Poor judgment is displayed in an emergency, downright selfishness  influences the driver in his attitude towards other drivers, recklessness  leads to the taking of desperate risks,���������in a word, it Is the human factor,  act the -machine that is at fault. And what is true in the case of the  automobile will be found to be true in-varying degrees of all machinery.  Not only so, but the same statement may he made without fear of  successful contradiction in regard to all man-made or evolved institutions,  systems and plans. Of course, no machine and no institution or system, is  perfect, but as the years "roll by they are constantly improved upon and.  brought ever nearer perfection, although, admittedly, perfection will never  be fully attained. But such approach to perfection is not attained by  destroying the existing machine or institution, but by improving upon that  which exists until, in course of time and through experience, a new machine  has been actually developed which replaces the old one, or a new scheme  has been evolved -which, because of its many advantages over an old"bne,  gradually replaces it. It is, in fact, not a new scheme at all, but an evolution of, a development out of, the old one.  There is a tendency in these troublous times to lay all the blame for our  difficulties upon the machine, to denounce our systems and methods of government, our methods and ways of distributing commodities, the institutions  through which we finance the purchase and sale of goods and services, as  alone responsible for the evils against -which we are presently contending.  Perhaps machine production needs to be more effectively controlled, and our  ' institutions, systems and methods further improved. linprovement is always  necessary, and furthermore it is always taking place. Mankind is hot  slipping backward, but is constantly and steadily going forward. And if,  temporarily, we have allowed things to get out of gear; if the machine is  running wild; if our systems of government and of life are proving unequal  to the strain we have put upon them, is the fault in the machine, or the  system, or is the fault in the human factor which created the machine and  established the systems and then failed to guide them aright?  Scrapping all the machines in the world today, over-throwing every  existing form of government, every system in the financial or economic  world, every man-made institution, and replacing them with something  entirely new would not provide a solution for the world's troubles so long as  men and women with the same characteristics, the same natures, the same  prejudices and passions, the same greeds, in a word all the same human  limitations which now hamper and control us, remain in control.  Our churches should be as near perfection as anything in this world  can be, but they are not; indeed, they are far from it. Not because they are  not founded upon the highest ideals, because they are, but because a church  is just what the people who constitute that church make it. We boast of a  democratic form of government, but it is full of weaknesses and admitted  evils, not because the principles upon which democratic government is  rounded are weak and evil, but because- our present-day democracy,���������that is,  the people,���������themselves create the weaknesses and are responsible for the  evils. Leaders of political parties are blamed for many things against which  they are constantly fighting but which are forced upon them and their  parties by the rank and file of the people.  If all men were honest in their thinking and in their dealings with one  another; if in their desire to prosper they also controlled their greed; if In  demanding recognition of their own rights and opinions and beliefs, they  were likewise ready and willing to accord a like recognition to those who  held contrary views; if, in a word, the human factor was stronger, better  and a little nearer perfection, there would be less cause to condemn  machines, systems and institutions. More than anything else tn the world  today, it is man who is at fault, and the fault extends all the way from the  oinn whom the world regards as being at the top to the man who Is at tho  very bottom.  We are told that the law of tho jungle prevails; that it Is sttll a case of  the survival of the illlebl. It ia largely true* and why is it true? Because It  is, after all, Nature's law. All Nature proves it, from the tiniest insect or  plant to the largest. Nature's law rules supremo in tho animal, vegetable  and mineral world. It manifests itself among the fishes In the sea,, tho birds  in the air, th*> vogntntion. in tho fields and forests. It influences all mankind,  but, given a brain and reasoning powers, man has stoadlly risen above the  beasts. He has not attained perfection; far from It. Nor can ho attain it by  Act of Parliament, or through any given systom, but only by'tho steady  upward climb, higher and ever higher above tho lower animal world.  Qod and Nature alone are perfect, and men can alone draw closer to  that perfection by subordinating tho ovil and tho gross in his nature to-that  which Is good and henoflcicnt. What tho world stands in need or today is a  cieciueu improvement iu Luc human factor.

Xn the estuaries and harbors of  Britain today millions of pounds'  worth of shipping are tied up, deteriorating rapidly, and piling up heavy  maintenance charges against owners  with little hope of ever again putting  to sea. Twenty per centf of all the  world's shipping is idle, the aggregate quantity tied up amounting to  15,000,000 tons. Thirty-two well-  known British shipping lines at the  moment are paying no dividend on  their ordinary shares, which means  the impoverishment of hundreds" of  thousands of small investors all over  the Empire. /  It is estimated that foreign nations  for the past several years have been  spending $150,000,00������ yearly on subsidies to shipping. At the same time  ail sorts of restrictive laws have been  passed against the natural operation  of shipping and old regulations have  been-tightened up. Today, while every  port in the British- Isles and in the  whole Empire Is free to shipping of  all nations*. Kr^itash ..ships are,, "harrefi  from the coastal trade of many countries.  If British shipping were subsidized  on the same relative scale as their  foreign competitors, it is stated that  the British taxpayer would have to  find more than $100,000,000 annually.  Meanwhile, British shipping lines  are forced to curtail expenses in  every possible direction; thousands of  splendid seamen are out of -work, and  British shipyards, with a capacity  output of 2,500,000 tons a year, at  this time have only 120,000 in hand.  ��������� WorSd Will Right Itself  Past    Events    Prove    Hard    Tlnwa  Oannot I^sst -Forever  In  dark days���������"AU Wrong."

The Montreal Star, which recently  discussed the transportation priibicni  under the caption: "The Itailway  Monster," comments, directly, on Mr.  Beatty's speech. The Star more or less'  reserves judgment but points out several weaknesses in Mr. Beatty's argument. It also dismisses as t*6t shh-  stantial most of Mr. Beatty^  isms of tha Dofi report.  believes tii������ merger issues Sia^ now  been joint and concludes its editorial  comment by suggesting that the public may safely leave the Snsi decision,  to Premier Bennett.  Mr. Beatty, it is believed, would  scn*-saly raise such an issue unless  he had the unanimous support of his  directors and the support y of his  friends and advisors. It is thought  he would not do so unless he believed  there is an excellent chance of success. Coupling his speech with that of  Sir Herbert Holt and other business  magnates, it is presumed that exceedingly powerful Interests are behind the drive for a railway merger.  The reaction among supporters of  public ownership Is to prepare for the  battle. Hon. W. G. Euler, former Liberal minister and the foremost of  their advocates in the Commons, assailed the Beatty plan in a public address ai Sarnla recently. At Ottawa  there is any amount of informal discussion going oh but an unwillingness  to talk for publication.  ��������� --4-        ,JTkii ^fJ&������*  Above la a reproduction of a portrait of Profonsoyr A..

Gloomy as is the News' picture  of conditions,  from reading the  news colums of Okanagan week-j  lies,   it ;might   appear   that the'  worst' is yet to come���������and  that  "worst"   is   the possibility of a  heavy dumping of fruit) well  over 1400,000 boxes according to  some figures) part of which will  certainly be of boxed fruit.  To limit to some extent the  tonnage to be dumped the Cartel  Council is asking the railways to  concede the present freight rate  on bulk apples to fruit shipped in  boxes to western Canada centres.  In connection with the looked-for  dump the Vernon News says.  1 "It is not considered likely that  I the dumping loss will be charged  to these varieties. It will poss-  ihlv be snread over a wide x>ool.  as it is realized that the dumping  of any poorer priced variety at  this time will stiffen the sale and  price of the better varieties.  "Cartel figures show that at  December 31 its members held  829,950 boxes of "other varieties"  apples in storage at various  places for domestic use alone,  plus 228,912 boxes of Maes, also  for domestic.

Gasoline stealing from cars has  has been rampant for some considerable time; the robbing of  root houses and clothes lines  more recent, while the very latest  is the theft of swing ropes and  and flag pole ropes from rural  schools.  Detection, in such eases is most  difficult and minimum fines may  not prove a sufficient corrective  for such miserable acts.

Frhaoo; Of Wales  The Prince of Wales Is quoted as  saying that hia mother, Quecn.Mary,  is closer to the hearts and minds of  the English people than any member  of the royal family. A motherly sou3,  the   queen   has   a   faculty   of  doing  things that attract favorable attention. There is the case of Arthur Topple, for instance. He Is one of tho  active workers at St. Swithan'a Mission. Tooting. Mo is just 17, and when  tho mission decided to hold a bazaar,  Arthur conceived tho idea of writing  to: Queen Mary  and  asking If  she  would contribute a jew.glfj-s for tho  Christmas fair.

In doing  so she has  followed   tho   tradition   of   the   British Empire as a whole.       It is no  exaggeration to say   that   the   stability   and   soundness   of   the   Empire's   banking     institutions     have  played   an   important   part   In   the  creation of this good record.  Hallway Problem.  In referring    to    the    report    of  the   Royal   Commission   on   Transportation*     Sir    Herbert   expressed  the   opinion   that   co-operation    between   the   two    railroad    systems  to    effect    mutual    economies    will  not   prove   drastic   enough   to   cut  down   in  any  adequate   degree   the  annua!   deficits   of   the   government  railways,   and   expressed   the   conviction    that   the    solution   lay   In  complete   amalgamation.      He    felt  fears  of  a.  monopoly  were groundless  and that   under   proper   safeguards   unification   would   result   in  a   co-ordinated   transportation   Bys-  tewi  adequate  to the  needs  of the  country   and   conducted   at  a minimum of expense.  Govcnuncnt*Bxpense������.  "For many years, Government  expenditure has been on. an excessive scale. Extravagance has  characterized the budgets of national, provincial and municipal  j;ov*>rnmRnt9. Throughout the country there Is a general demand that  budgets be balanced and ovcry effort  rnu.de to lighten the heavy hnvdnn  imposed upon the people by reducing  tho unduly heavy taxation.  "There id a noteworthy duplication of Government in Canada  which leads to tho excessive cost  oi 4uhk.luls'Uatiion.

Internal matters, -but also  Cor thoan which concern the I*) umpire as a whole.  Reviewing tho Imperial Conference at Ottawa, Sir Herbert said  that the material aahlovcmcnta attained were a triumph for Mr,  Bennett and his Government.

Pointing   ������ut   that. the    banking -  system      of      Canada      adequately -  ���������serves   the   needs   of   the   country,.  he  said   that a Central Bank could":  perform   few   services    not    available    under    the    present    system,,.  and  would not   in   any   sense    do  a-way    with    the   necessity   of    requiring      adequate      security     for-  banking   accommodation,    nor   &2T���������  mit   banks   to   undertake long-term  transactions      instead      of      short-  term     advances     for     reproductive^  purposes.;    Recognizing     that      the  question of central   banking   is   not :.  one to   be   disposed   of   summarily^  he   said:   41   should   hope   that   if  Parliament   is   called   upon   to deal  with, the   matter,   thfe- Government;  will   first   have   the project   examined    thoroughly by a body of experts,  including   several   from   older   countries    who   have   had    experience in the practical working off~~  a   central   bank.     I   confess   to   a .  reluctance    to   tinker   with  our  fi���������  nanci&l   machinery   in   a   time   like?  this."  Price Restoration.  "On previous occasions we haver  stressed the Importance of restor���������������  ing the world price structure to-  approximately 1924-28 levels. I remarked last year that such action-,  was essential if the present deflation is to be liquidated in an or���������  derly manner, pointing out that;  deflation had been carried ,jto ex- -  tremes and that anti-deflation-  measures were urgently required.-  j Unfortunately, price levels continued to fall until the end of*  June, and the rise which commenced    at    that    time   has    since  uutn     waltociieu. 4. tin     cieuuxxu     tor  the   year,   as Indicated by the United   States   Bureau  of  Labor  Index,  will   be,   apparently,   about   7    per  cent.,   which compares-with 13 percent, in  1031  and  17   per  cent,  in  1&30.   Tho   best   that   can   be   sa'.dD.  is   that   the   rate   of "fall   was   appreciably   less     than     in     previous  years.  "Tho vital necessity for Increasing prices is now commonly*  recognized, but- tho difficulty of  countering deflation increases as.  the depression continues. Wo  must hope that the forthcoming  world EJconomlc Conference will  point tho way to constructive ac-  iion iu this respect.  "There    is    little    inclination    to  indulge   lu   prophecy   as   to tho f.u-  turo.  As   Sir  Herbert  stated*   there  aro   Indications   of   a   gradual   m-<  crease   in   stability   throughout the  world.

Alan stopped shooting and  checked Bill.  Yonder in the reeds the fire died  away raggedly. A silence fell. A  minute lengthened into two, three,  four. Alan heard, or thought he  I heard a faint rustling, a faint gurgling of water. He listened intently,  but did not hear it again.  "Alan! What happened? Where'd  they go?"  "They got away.
