'  In the ladies* section, in which  there were five teams, the High  School ,Reps. were the winners of  the league, playing with a swift  and graceful ease*?.- They finished  85 points in front of their nearest  opponents* and were at no time  seriously in danger of losing their  place at the league head. ^  The     Meds.      and      Creston  IXX%J IA/* O I1CU 1U1 0<TV^V������������lv������       JJlMVV.,  each   winning seven games,  although in actual points the Meds  wtric   xtVe   ������iu<cau   Ol    oiJtur   Bivais.  In the the semi-finals the Meds.  were forced to relinquish their  claim to second place, by losing  the two deciding games to the  Motor girls.  The Highfliers did not have the  success of the Reps., but played  good ball and took their defeats  -sporiingly, as also did the  Dominoes, who brought up the  rear, still holding their heads high  ^i������--;spite^f>th^r^o^^  . In the.7^e^:;,.sec|;i6n;,oi ��������� the  league even closer, were the team  scores, the league closing with  the Centipedes one game ahead  of their closest rivals, the Bearcats, with the finals yet to play,  and only a difference of 34 points.  Although the Bearcats hold  second place by winning seven  games, they fall behind in the  total points scored. Great credit  is due the Imperial Groceteria  who, although winning but three  games, managed to close "the  season six. pomts in front. of  the Bearcats, whose score was 144  as compared with 150 for the  grocers.  The more experienced teams  proved too much for the High  School boys who only rolled up  66 points, with no wins to their  credit. Following is a tabulated  statement of the play in both  sections.

In the midst  of this there are about 1845 acres  on which Indians have squatted.  The provincial government previously gave the band of the lower  Tfs&teSB&B&x*.**$5\. 4&~ $]&*+��������� iJ-845  acres. "The, report of the royal  commission   indicates   that   the  federal government as guardian of  the Indians* is responsible for its  share of the cost of reclaiming  such lands, but the government  contends that no funds are available for such purpose and that  the   syndicate    must    carry   on  private   negotiations    with   the  Indians for the purchase or lease  of the Indian lands.   Such negotiations    would   have    to   be  through a government representative, and have the approval of  the department of Indian affairs.  When a vote is taken by  the  Indians, all the male members of  the band are given the opportunity to approve or disapprove of  any project, and the Indians on  the reserve at  Creston  approved  ot   the   reclamation   scheme   in  January last by a vote of four to  one.   Today   the    Indians    are  primarily dependent on the sale  of such wild hay as they may cut  and   the   representative    of the  government has pointed out to  the department that the interests  of the band would be advanced  materially b^y the reclamation of  Indian   lands.   The department  understands that negotiations for  the purchase or lease of the lands  is still in progress.  - Miss Margaret Stewart, of Cranbrook,  is a visitor here this week, with her  father, W.

Last Friday night the Creston girls'  basketball team took the measure of the  invading Troy, Montana, quintette 26-  16. The opposing squad, nervous on a  strange floor and hampered by their  nnfamiiiarity with men's rules, put up a  game fight and at one point in the game  almast caught up to their rivals. Their  superlative sportsmanship created a  good impression on the local fans, who  were generous in their applause of both  teams.  In the first minute, a solo break by  Woods resulted in a nice field basket.  Creston responded with a concerted  attack. ' After three shots had failed,  Molly Moore scored for the locals. A  minute later Irene Bourdon sank a nice  one, while'Woods placed a foul shot for  Troy. Marge Levirs took a pass from  Bourdon to score, dribbled the length of  the floor to score again, and then scored  4-1-~mg^k  ���������    SVn       *������������>a,       ,^J*^������-������'������-$"        ������������������������*%���������'-������ %jf va,n������aana          .              ^^       ������*^a**������        **AVV*.*hra  free throw for  Creston      10,  Mrs.  (Flint)  Kelsey reports the first, call for a  t>���������:���������������  XL  cornea from  j"hird  another  quarter:  Murphy   sank  Troy.

In the preliminary, Bearcats made it  two straight on the Groceteria to enter  the finals against the Centipedes. The  score was 25-6, and the Groceteria was  never in the picture.  The first games of the semi��������� finals  resulted in wins for the Creston Motors,  who beat the Meds, 18-10; and for the  Bearcats who nosed out the Groceteria  in the last minute, 18-16. Both games  were close and provided many thrills for  the sparse attendance of fans.

In articles written for this column a studious effort is made to avoid  subjects of a partlzan political character, because we are not concerned with  the fate of political parties, as such, but only with the effect which the adoption or rejection of any given policy may have upon the welfare of the country and people as a whole. For this reason, and in order to a.void even an  appearance of partisanship, discussion of certain subjects which undoubtedly  are in the public interest, but which, unfortunately, have become involved in  pasty controversy, has not been undertaken. The aim of this column has  been, and will continue to be, to present information, logically and fatrly  interpreted, and leave it to the reader to reach his or her own conclusions.  One subject which has. therefore,-been more or less taboo in this column  is Customs Tariffs, their effect on prices, on the trade and commerce of the  country, on both internal and external development, and international relationships in general. That taboo on the wide subject of Tariffs still remains  because political parties remain sharply divided oa the question, but there is  one particular aspect of the Tariff and Trade question which, within recent  weeks, has been lifted out of the realm of paritzan controversy so far as  Canada is concerned. Reference is  to the  subject of reciprocity with  the  Stockholm Is Fringed With Communities Since War   ���������"���������-'  Factory-made cottages that can be  put up in a day have become popular in Sweden and Stockholm is  fringed with, little "garden cities."  The workman who tires of apartment life can order a new home on  Monday and help his wife put up the  curtains and lay the rugs a few days  later.  The ^'garden cities" are part of a  communal building program, designed to provide low rents for wage  earners, ip which the city government  has in the last ten years extended indirect financial aid to nearly 100,000  pernnna. almost oi\e-fif th of the population  of  the  city.  The program was instituted after  the World War when there was a  shortage of homes as a result of industrial development. The government bought up large country estates, and these are parceled out on  long-term, leases.  Tho person who decides to build  a cottage can nave 90 per cent, of  the cost financed by the government.  The Interest charges on this money  pay for road development, gas, water  and sewer mains. For a modern cottage, with three rooms, kitchen and  full basement, the dweller pays about  950 kroner or $260 a year.  COFFEE CA^Er-equalb popular for  tea, luncheon or supper.. .

Like Buckingham Palace  *****  All political parties in Canada are now definitely committed to the policy  of entering into favorable trade relations with our great neighbor to the  south, and. most happily, the present Administration in the United States  is also favorable. It would appear, therefore, unless purely selfish interests  in both countries are allowed to unduly influence the probable course of  events, a new chapter in the trade relations of these two good neighbors will  shortly be written.  After all, it will not in reality be the writing of a new chapter, but the  re-opening after a long interval of the book at an old chapter, and a revision  of that chapter in the light of present day developments and needs. Reciprocity did prevail many years ago between Canada and the United States, and  it was admittedly advantageous to both countries. Why. then, was it abrogated? The Encyclopaedia Britannica gives the reason in these words:  "A heritage of differences and difficulties had been left to be settled be=  tween England. Canada and the American Union as the result of the Civil  War. In retaliation for the supposed sympathy of Canadians with the South  in the struggle, the victorious North took steps to abrogate in 1866 the  reciprocity treaty of 1S54, which had conferred such great advantages on  both countries."  Whatever the differences and difficulties and ill-feelings and suspicions  which were engendered by the American Civil War, they have long, since  passed away. They no longer stand as a stumbling block to the development  of the freest and largest possible exchange of trade, between these two countries, each of which is the natural market of the other.  Now with the situation in Canada being that any Government in power  at Ottawa, -whether Conservative, Liberal, C.C.F., or a coalition of any two  or all three parties, would be committed by their party declarations to the  negotiation of a reciprocal trade agreement, and with the Roosevelt Administration, supported by an overwhelming majority in both Houses of Congress, equally favorable, the time would appear to be moat opportune for the  cultivation of the strongest possible public sentiment in favor of the "early  realization of such a policy on a comprehensive scale, and covering the widest possible range of commodities.  According to Henry Chalmers, of Washington, chief of the Foreign Tariff Division of the United States Department of Commerce, "the Government  is working 'full tilt' on a reciprocal tariff programme." Even before the  Hoover Administration retired from office the Government tariff experts had  been put to work on a reciprocal tariff programme, said Mr. Chalmers, in  order to help "the Roosevelt Administration get a 'flying start'."  Mr. Roosevelt's Secretary of Commerce, Daniel C. Roper, openly advocates a United States tariff-policy "of common sense and common decency to  other nations." He says: "For too many years we have, as a nation, been  fervent in our protestations of a desire to foster our international trade,  while at the same time we have actually been doing our best to place in its  path almost insurmountable obstacles. There are honest differences of opinion aa to tariff policies, but I believe that an overwhelming majority of the  American people have unmistakably shown that they are tired of a policy  that has antagonized every nation in the world." Buying as well as selling  must occur in foreign commerce, he said, adding that no nation could successfully market Its own goods if it persisted in refusing to admit a reasonable volume of,the products of other countries.  Let it bo repeated, therefore, that now,���������with partlzan differences in  Canada having been thrown into the discard on this question,���������Is the time  for the people of this country to unite in the development of a great sentiment in favor of a far-reaching reciprocal trade agreement with the United  States, and the presentation of a united front in order that our great natural  *rt������  Spacious Gardens  While some of the younger members of the royal family dislike Buckingham Palace, the King and Queen  ar<3 very fond of it. They love the  quiet, spacious gardens where they  can meander and read and work.  Queen Alexandra was most reluctant  to leave the Palace and return to  Marlborough House after the death  of King Edward. Prince George left  the house, not because he disliked it,  but because he wanted to join the  Prince of Wales, his favorite brother.

Australian Government prefers "Ahem  For Several Beasons  The Federal Government of Australia wants its air force personnel  composed of young, unmarried men  and the reasons are. psychological and  commercial. '*  It is pointed out that the experience has been that single men are  likely to accept the hazards of aviation with less misgiving than men  who are under the responsibility of  supporting wife and family.���������For that  reason particularly, it is believed the  single men display more nerve and  are likely to make a better record  where desperate risks must be accepted.  The other consideration is that der  pendents of married men have claims  for compensation in the case of death  or injury of the married aviator and  Australia's finances are not such as  to justify extra outlay.

Scarcity of wheat in Russia  and partial failure of the Danube  crop are given as grounds for this  prediction.  In the present crop year to date,  Russian and Danubian shipments  have amounted to only 19,000,000  bushels, With the prospect that no  more than an additional 5,000,000  bushels will be shipped to the end  of July, 1933. This would require of  the non-European wheat-producing  countries an export of about 640,000,-  000 bushels for the whole crop year,  or about the same as in" the preceding  year.  The report estimates the new Australian crop at 200,000,000 bushels,  with a surplus of 150,000,000 bushels  for current export. Of this, 101,000,-  000 bushels has already been exported.  Argentine's estimate is 236,000,000  bushels, leaving 126,000,000 bushels  for current export. Of that a total  of 57,000,000 bushels has still to be  exported.

However the team pulled to solid land without mishap and the stranger breathed  a sigh of relief.  The stranger would have liked to ask  questions but h? had no breath to spare,  for the road they were now on was  dimply a series of heaps. The rig  lurched and buckled, sliding over the  hank first on one side, then on the other  and never for a moment at level. The  stranger pitched forward, backward and  sideways in his seat, then feebly requested the farmer to sit upon him to hold  him in place.  However, before this was necessary  the   team pulled upon another bridge,  the farmer to drive through, then reelos"  ing the gate. "Hop aboard," said the  farmer, "we'll drive over to th barn."  After putting the horses away the farmer  led the way to the house where, by the  light of the lantern he had used at the  barn, he located the house key that  allowed them entry.  "Now, stake yourself to a pew,"  said the farmer, "while I get this  fire going and some grub to warm,"  and as the stranger settled himself wearily in a chair the farmer busied himself  with kindling and wood, with "the rosult  that soon a fire was roaring merrily, and  the room warming up.  up.

The room was sparsely furnished; neat and clean, and having taken in  that much the stranger Fell asleep.  After what appeared to the stranger  three and a ban seconds he was awakened by the farmer with the announcement tnat dinner was served and added  that it would not spoil if the stranger  had washed up a bit.  ihe    farmer   led   the   way   into   an  adjoining room where a clean bed stood  invitingly ready, a basin of water with  the chill taken off stood upon a draped I  box, and a clean rough towel hung on a  nail in the wall above it.   Tho stranger ���������  -was glad of the opportunity to remove  the mud splashes and the dust from his |  person;   used   the farmer's brushes to;  arrange his thick dark hair, and with a  vigorous application of whisk brush to  his clothes completed his toilet.  The farmer awaited him at the table,  and upon his reappearance told him to  sit in and make the most of it. The  meal was an appetizing one; juicy steak,  . potatoes cut into long strips and fried.  What do you j milk, choice dairy butter, and citron  jam on fresh bread to top off the load;  the whole washed down by a good brand  of tea.  Both  men ate heartily, for a whole  day had passed with neither food nor  drink,,     which*   abstinence   whets   the  appetite.    At the conclusion of the meal  the   farmer   pat    away what food remained,   stacked   the   dishes with the  assistance of the stranger, who took the  drying cloth, soon had the dishes cleaned  and away to their off-duty resting place.  j    With    the    table   cleared, the stove  {banked up, and chairs adjusted to the  j warmth, the men settled themselves to j f  termed it, "hitting the hay." The  stranger produced his tobacco, and  Ou������ to tiie i&rnier was accepteu wuu  thanks, for, said the farmer,"I know  you are dying for a smoke and if I don't,  it seems you won't, so we'll have it  together."  With their pipes going the men seemed  happier and soon the farmer remarked,  "How do you feel now?" "A great deal  better," said the stranger, "that three  seconds of sleep and a most delicious  meal have put me on my feet again."  "Well don't spoil it by getting on your  feet again," suggested the farmer, "stay  sitting, It- will do you more good,  and, for your information' I might tell  you that the three second snooze you  spoke of lasted exactly one hour and a  half. I noticed you were pretty much  all in, so did not hurry things. I went  back to the barn and made my horses  comfortable and you were sleeping so  soundly you heard nothing of, my comings or goings, I was out^ and in several  times getting ��������� wood and water, meat  from the meat house, milk from the box  beside the road, where the kids leave it  on their way to school and you slept  through it all."  The stranger seemed surprised, then  said, "I very much appreciate your  kindness, and I feelever so much better,  but you; you have been bumped about  today more than I hav.e; do you not feel  played out?" "No," said the farmer,  "I'm used to it; its almost a daily  happening around these parts, if you  can't stand the gaff, the best thing to do  is to get out, because if you don't get  out you'll go under."  "I see," murmured the stranger, and  then, "Do you keep bows?" "No,"  said the farmer, "I don't. I have an  arrangement with a neighbor to do  certain work for him in return for a  supply of milk and butter. My neighbor  makes good butter and I am glad to get  it. I have no use for the creamery  product, I worked in a creamery and  after seeing the class of muck they buy  up and treat and turn "out labeled  creamery products, I swore off.

Yet slowly the  crevices grow wider and the danger  to life and property increases.  Rock slides may occur at any time.  Specially are they likely in the spring  and the Alberta government has  sounded a warning.  The main trans-Canada highway  passes through the ruins of the slide  of 1903, when upwards of 90 persons  were buried alive. Millions of tons  of rock and earth swept in an avalanche over the valley. To safeguard  travellers it ia being urgently asked  that the road be changed to a route  beyond the danger line. Appeals are  going forward to the government  along these lines.  Old timers are now recalling the  Frank slide horror of April 29, 1903.  Early in the morning and without  the slightest warning. Turtle Mountain, rising 3,000 feet above the raining village, was torn asunder and _a  hundred millions of tons of debris  fell with s. thundering roar over the  settlement and across the valley. A  thousand acres were covered with  limestone rock to a varying depth of  a foot to a 150 feet. Many miners'  cottages were buried, others were destroyed.

Gardens At Fort Resolution  Two    Cent   Rate   Brings   In    Moro  Revenue Than Three  Both in   principle   and   from   tne  teachings of past experience,  public  men know well that after a certain  point has been reached, the revenue-  derived  from   any  given   tax  tends  to fall off as the rate is pushed upward.    Yet strangely  enough, when,  revenues become inadequate to meet  the needs of the time, they are  apt"  to forget this fact in the temptation  of squeezing a greater return out of -  a particular assessment.  One of the first Departments or.  Government to find out that, conversely, to reduce the rate might be^  to increase revenue, was the Post  Oflftce. In the days of the stage coach;  postal charges were so high that letter-writing was almost a luxury for  the well-to-do. A single sheet of paper-  would be crossed with writing in order to keep down the weight upom  which postage must be paid.  But because postage was expensive, the revenue to the Government  from that source waa relatively  small Then Roland Hill, in England,,  conceived the daring idea of penny  poatage. put it into practice, 2���������ade^  letter-writing popular, and the revenue went up by leaps and bounds.  For many years, a penny or two������  cents was the standard postal rates  in most couatTiea but of late years;'  the need for revenue has led a number of Governments to raise it to*  three cents: the Canadian Government among the number.  In the United States a year's trial  has proved conclusively that the  three-cent stamp is a dismal failure-  as a revenue raiser; in fact, it is figured that continuance of thi3 rate^  during 1933 will cost the America]*  Post Office Department $100,000,000-  So first class mail in the United!  States will be going under a two-  cent stamp by July 1, and it is also-  planned to return to the old one-cent  rate for local or drop letters, within.  a year or two.

He entered  a house and wished no one to know of  Mia prAsnnce; hi it He could itot b^ hici.  In these words we get a glimpse of  what Jesus' ministry cost Him, of the  drain it was upon his resources of  body and spirit. In silence and solitude He would repair His forces.  "The verdict of all the centuries is  this, that there is that in Jesus which  is irrepressible. I have seen a rock  cieft into twain by a seedling that  rooted in the crannies. A seed had  fallen, and the spring had quickened  it, and it rent its prison-house and  rose in beauty, and so in the ages has  it been with Christ. He has been buried out of sight a thousand times, and  a thousand times when hope was almost dead, the world has 'learned  that He could not be hid. That is the  meaning of the Reformation, when.  Christ stepped forth again out of the  darkness. That is the meaning of  every revival, when Christ is uplifted  and every eye beholds Him. That is  the meaning of all social effort which  is so earnest m o'.ir ia-nd today: for it  is Christ who is moving in it all, and  He cannot be hid."���������G. H. Morrison.  A Cure In the Decapolis, verses 31-  37a���������When. Jesus left the neighborhood of Tyre He went northward to  Sidon and returned home by a circuitous route which brought Him to  the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee in the Decapolis. There a man who  was deaf and could not speak plainly  was brought to Him for cure. The  Greek word translated "had an impediment in his speech" is sometimes  considered as meaning dumb, but  from the announcement of his cure in  verse 35, that he "spake plain,'* it  does not seem to mean that here.  Jesus took the man as?.de. possibly  out of thoughtful kindness because  the man's affliction had made him  nervous and self-conscious, or perhaps because Jesus ���������wished to avoid  the crowds of the afflicted that would  at once throng Him. for cures, for He  had other work to do. Here as in  Mark 8:23, John 9:6, He used visible  signs, put His fingers into the man's  ears, spat and touched his tongue,  then looking up to heaven in prayer  He said to the man "Ephphatha," Be  opened.

A. Bourget, M.D.,  the Indian agent at that point.      In  most  of  his  own  garden he   could  water with the help of an engine, and  consequently had 135 bags of potatoes, against 180 the year previous.  Unwatered gardens seem to have suffered, as they did at Hay River and  Providence, farther   west.   Simpson,  still farther west, had a bumper crop.  Good onions and celery were among  tho  doctor's  1932  achievements.   He  planted no tomatoes, but the corporal  of    the    Royal   Canadian   Mounted  Police and another gardener had satisfactory results with them, and the  Oblate  mission  had  green  ones  by  the tubful, ripening some Indoors.

The six of them wore talking, or  listening rather to Jensen talk, of final plans to escape. Echoing the Identl-  : cal line of reasoning which Alan  Baker had sketch In Haskell's cabin,  Jensen went on: "Some of you wanta  .go back to the River and git outside  thataway.

They were sitting there en s. hundred  and fifty thousand dollars which he  had got for them. They owed their  very lives to hi3 quick thinking  aboard the steamer, when he had  pulled their trick out of the fire. And  they were leaning on him now to save  them from the Mounted and get them  out to the oblivion of a big city.  He went on explaining the escape.  "Now, here, all of you���������Iook't here."  He smoothed a place on the *mud  floor; and as the others leaned forward to watch,' he-drewja rude map  with his long ttumb"' hail. "We'ir fol-  leTtxr fTy-a.

Next spring we'll  east on down and out to Winnipeg,  and there we'll be with better'n a  hundred and fifty thousand in hides  and dust!"  His own personal and private plans  after they did get out to Winnipeg,  Jensen did not see fit to disclose. He  knew a' party there in the Queen City  of the Wheat Plains who would buy  the furs at two-thirds off their auction value and say "nudding." The  dust, behig unstamped, could be sold  anywhere. He himself, both, business  manager and leader of this cruise,  would naturally attend to those business matters. Once with the money  in Ms pocket, would he split six ways  with these lubbers ? Or would be  take a train and fade out of their  lives and have that hundred and fifty  thousand for hla own sweet own?  You bet your life he would!  With his.plans clear and the men  completely under his sway, Jensen  leaned back against a paqueton of  furs and sat, smoking/ thinking. ,  He guessed that for once the police  were altogether baffled. Thoy must  be pounding thoir heads to explain  who he and hla men were, where thoy  had come from, how they had got into  this country, unknown,, unscon; and  how they, complete strangers, knew  tho ins and outs of this northern wilderness as well as the. police ."themselves.

Through the tobacco haze, Jensen  looked back across six years and saw  again all the details of a certain incident between himself and Joyce  MacMillan. He had~re-llved "that incident1 a thousand-times since it happened. The memory of it, the memory of th?.t laijghing-eyed girl, had  come down across the years like the  scent of fresh violets. Two weeks: ago  when his party passed the MacMillan  trading .post, the place had seemed  deserted; and drawn by some overpowering impulse to see her, ��������� to be  near her again, he had flung caution  and hot haste to the winds, and stopped, and gone 'shore. The pictureof  that MacMillan girl asleep, an arm  under her head, a great-spurred vio-  maybe he ought to make some move'  to capture those six bandits. To let  them escape without raising a hand  against them, would look bad, very  bad, to Superintendent Williamson on  his coming visic xo the post.  Thinking- over his situation, he remembered how Baker had demanded  to lead a patrol to the Inconnu River  and lie in wait there. Baker had said  they, would try to escape by that  route. -He -knew what he was talking,  about. Haskell realized he knew.  Should he send a detail to the Inconnu ?       '  The more Haskell pondered the  idea, the more it appealed to him. It  was reasonably sure to succeed. It  would be the positive action-he needed. On his wall map he hunted for the  Inconnu. He found a small channel  of the Mackenzie by that name, but  Baker's Inconnu was some large river. Perhaps the chart listed it as "The  Unknown," the English translation of  the name. He searched for an Inconnu and an Unknown, but found neither. Such a -stream simply, was not  shown on his map.  When jLittie Otter came in to the  post for a supply of chewing stsmmo,  Haskell pjiisped'him.
