All growers in the valley, whether they are a<iiw members of the Associated or-saaisstiGn, or of the organized independent group, or even if  they are independent of any organization, would have to sell according to  the prices set by the marketing committee. "    ': ���������  The committee would keep in close  touch with Canadian and world fruit  demands, and govern the price of fruit  so as to benefit the entire industry,  prevent glutting of markets and make  impossible price cutting.  "Other details of the committee's  operations have yet to-be worked out  but It is planned to give it sweeping  powers so that it may exercise a general supervision of ail marketing. Its  chief function, however, would be to  fix fruit prices and to decide what  Quantity of fruit should be reserved  for the Canadian market and what exported." ���������"'  The Pentictosi View  The reason for this state of affairs  is best, indicated by a further article  printed in The Province. The matter  *������rtjj*gr{jnofl tn this .articl*9. Is of so much  importance that no apology is offered  for quoting it at some length.

While all of this letter does not bear  on Compulsory Co-operation, the entire letter is Quoted, as follows:  "In their letter, which appeared  in.your last issue, the Associated Growers state that a new contract must  necessarily be issued before tne present one expires and that the report re  the possibility of bringing about legislation to provide for compulsory cooperation was not inspired by them.  "Ffeeg to point out that the present  contract, cannot expire. It is continuous. The growers, however, have the  right to cancel it every five years. Any  grower, w.ho does not give notice of  cancellation before the 1st of ufarch,  1928, will certainly render himself liable to another 'five years' hard, without the option." I cannot believe that  the Associated are ignorant of this  fact though I know many growers are.  " T beg to point out also that,  while It is probably true that the Associated did not inspire the report referred to they are inspiring the action,  for the Directors passed a resolution  on the 2nd ult., approving of compulsory co-operation and of asking the  government to pass legislation to enforce it. At the same time, though,  they decided, I am Informed, that the  Associated should not appear publicly  as sponsors for the movement. It is,  of course, axiomatic, and requires no  demonstration that the prospects for  such legislation, should It ever, unfortunately, reach the Bouse In concrete  form, would be greatly improved if it  could be made to appear that the demand for it had arisen spontaneously  amongst the growers at large rather  than as the result of propaganda by  the officers of the company to benefit  by its enactment.'"  Greston's Action  In the issue of the CroBton Review,  December 31st, Is printed a resolution  that was passed by Creston Co-operative Fruit Exchange, which has the  status of a local of the Associated  Growers of B. C, Ltd. Commenting on  this resolution the Review states:  "With a very slight alteration this  resolution is the same as one discussed by representatives of the B. C.  Fruit Growers' Association; Associated Growers of B.C., and independent  whipping orgnnlzntlono, at a mooting  hold in Vancouver during apple show  week early this month."  It would appear therefor that tho  rosolutlon brought forward by the Associated and quoted above, has boon  sent to their various locals throughout  tho province for approval.

"And be it further resolved:  "That whereas legislation framed  with the purpose of compelling all  growers to ship their products through  one co-operative selling organization  would be certain to meet with strong  opposition, both on tho part of growers  and members of the Legislature and  would, In all likelihood, be tested In  the courts on tho score of lack of Jurisdiction of the legislature, to *.ho  groat tliaturbanco of any branch of  agriculture  affected, and,  "Whereas all but approximately 10  per cent, of the fruit marketed during  the present selling season has been  sold through the co-operatlvo efforts  of existing selling agencies, co-opom-  tive and Independent, and,  "Whereas, a largo majority of both  grower������ and celling ugoncies, as well  an t.hn provincial frnlt enmmlfiflionor  for tho prairie provinces and prairie  dealers aro of. the opinion that control  of tho 10 por cent, of uncontrolled  fruit would go a long way towards t3to  solution of our present difficulties, wo  are ot tho opinion tlu������t legislation to  bo submitted to the legislature should  make provision for tho creation of a  board of control, or committee of direction, on whlnh nil welling agencies  , WGU.M  b������   C0314P������,!������Cd   Ul   lUVV<������  ir'ipKltfoiU-  pulsory eo-opemtloii after all but, In- tation, such body to be governed Siy  ������������������tiTid, a wyBtcm of price fixing by a regulations providing severe- ponnllsa*  roprom-mlatlvo committee In every lino | tlon ot any of Its members failing to  of production which chooses to adopt obrsorva Its decisions and ruling, both  well developed methods of ���������shipping  and packing;* the excellent Tepiitation  built up for itSj product are factors  which make success within reach of  the Associated. :  Success will come not by eliminating  competition but by fostering competition; not by controlling the growers  by long-term contracts but by enabling the growers to control tltsSr' business as they rightfully should by not  placing themselves or their product  under contract to anyone.

At 12 years  the child normally undergoes a .radical  change, and from then till 15 years requires a new curriculum and a new!  method of teaching to give new interests and deuelop new powers,, To -cope  with this demand the ecmrcltesjoaVec-, raeomnwnda  ommends a new school, callec? the  Junior High, or Intermediate, or  Middle school.  that to tram a boy for a position drill  him in complicated but useless .subjects. The new theory says that the  way������to train a boy for a job is to let  him work at the job; just as the way to  learn to swim is to swim, Ijet us give  a specific example. The old theory  advocated the learning of Latin in  order to'increase theja&deretandiug of  English. It iff true that a number off  our Words are derived from the Latin,  but if the same time were devoted to  'the learning of English the same final  result would be achieved and the cum  abGut  5  per cent attend  point be found between one period and l^bersome and useless declentions and  conjunctions would'not have to be  mastered. The new theorylsays that  the best way tor learn S2n������r?Iish Is to  study Ehiglish.  So we will assume then that Education for the most part is" to be specific.  Most-of the things pupils will learn  will be of use either'at the time or in  later life. There must, isowever, be  son*:* subjects that have no value in  actual dollars and cents, but rather  have a valne in making it possible for.  the pupil to enjoy the better things of  life. Love of good literature would be  an example of such a subject.

Dean Swift makes the king of Brobdingnag  g;Lve utteraii.ee to the opinion that whoever couldsmake two ears of corn or  two blades' of grass to grow upon a spot of ground where only one grew  before, would deserve better of mankind and do more essential service to bis  country than the whole race of politicians put together.  Certain it is that while many politicians have done an immense amount  of good in this world, many others have done incalculable harm, but the experi-"  menters and scientists who have carried Gut the dictum of Dean Swift's  tBiaginerv king have conferred nothing but good upon mankind.  In April last the death occurred of Luther Durban!:, of California, popularly known as the plaut- wizard, at the ripe old age of 77 years. Mr. Burbanls  devoted his life to the breeding of plants, and the results of his remark  able experiments in the development of fiowersa fruits and plants of all kinds  are too well known to require more telling. He gave added size and beauty  to flowersi and. developed many new types; lie increased Use size, and flavor of  many fruits; he increased the productive power of many plants and trees many  times over. He thus added not only to the beauty of the world, but to.the  rEruit grower, the wealth of the world, and the ..health or; people generally.  Canada, too, has its "plant wizard, in the person of Di\ Saunders; the  creator of Marquis wheat. About twenty-five years ago Br. Saunders, after^long  a-ficfi paii!staking experiments, succeeded in er-os-siug a kernel of wheat froKi  the shores of the Baltic with another kernel of wheat Crpm the foothiiis of the  Himalayas and thereby ereuied a new type which produced a larger yield  per acre, made a whiter flour, and ripened in less time and, thus avoided  damage from, frost. This new wheat was -rui-rned ;.Maroittisi';-tmd;;'������rpm' the one  Kernel of only about twenty-five years ago. 'there is now harvested around  ���������four hundred million bushels annually. Ur. Saunders" work has meant-hundreds of millions of dollars to Canada within the life of the present generation.  Western Canada can also boast of its experimenters through -whose  efforts several blades ot grass, or wheat, have been made to grow  -sphere only one grew before. The name of Seager Wheeler is a. household  word in the farm hontes of this country. He has .shown how the finest wheat  -In the world, the wheat which year-after, .year captured the world's ...-first  prize, can be grown. He ha.s demonstrated, the methods to be followed, and  Isas proven how profitable good farming and proper cultivation and seed  selection is as compared -with careless and -indifferent cultivation., the 'use of  poor seed arid poor farming in general. Seager Wheeler Is now engaged in  ttemonstrating that apples,"pears,;flunks and, other fruits can be successfully  f*^own oa the prairies of Western-Canada.   :  Politicians have a work of importance Ho do for the country, and in the  doing of it honestly, faithfully, and well they-are deserving of all honor ;and  loyal support^ but men like Burbanfc, Saunders, Wheeler, and others whose  names are not so well known but who are quietly raising, the standai-d of production, are likewise deserving of all. the honor their fellow citizens can  bestow upon them. They are d.c.ing a work for mankind which neither politicians, nor any other group of men can do, and their works will live after them.  The world heaps honors and riches on the successful politician, "manufacturer, financier, and business man. Too frequently, though, the quiet man at  work in his garden, field or laboratory, working out through years of study and  experimentation difficult problems whose solution blesses all mankind, remains unrecognized and without reward* It is gratifying, therefore, to learn  that a body has been created with strong financial backing to carry on the  work.to.which Luther Burbank devoted the best years of his life; that the  Dominion Government has rcognized Dn Saunders' invaluable research work  by granting him an annuity of some thousands of dollars for life; that ieaders  in all walks and professions in life have united in doing honor to Seager  -* Wheeler.  Over and above the material achievements of these really great men, and  the direct benefits they have conferred on the world, there is the example of  such lives and the incentive they give to others to strive mightily for greater, better things. The Individual, farmer who is earnestly striving to make his  farm a model for the community in which he lives, who wages unceasing warfare on weeds, who gives close attention, to tho cultiyation of his soil, insists  on good, clean seed,, who eliminates scrubs from his herds and houses his  cattle In clean and sanitary buildings, or the farm wife who takes a pride in  her poultry, in the quality of the milk and cream sent to the creamery, or the  butter she herself may make, are likewise doing essential service to their  country aud are deserving of the thanks of their fellow citizens.

As  the tourist business is good business,  since it is all done on a cash basis,  and the profits are immediate and beyond question, it would be the part of  wisdom for Canada to do what she can  to expand it. This can -be done in  two ways: by inducing more tourists  to come and by inducing |those who  come to remain longer*���������Vancouver  Province.

Grain  Company  first  undertook the  distribution   of  binder  twine  it was Impossible- for a farmers' organization    to    buy   twine    at  wholesale prices, and the company in  suite  of its  lai*ge  purchasing  poWer,  had a' good deal,of difficulty in matting  purchases at first. /For a, time.it was  necessary to import....twine,  made   in  Ireland.    Before that time twine was  handled only through certain well defined  retail   channels,  and the  retail  profits allowed added from two to four  cents  a  pound to the  cost of twine.  Now, thanks to the work done by the  farmer's company, a large part of the  twine   used   is    distributed    through  farmer organizations, at U.G.G. elevators and by local associations. The total savings  to farmers that have resulted are not easy to calculate, but  probably two million dollars less has  been paid by farmers, for U.G.O. twine  than they would have had to pay under   conditions    formerly    prevailing,  and  still  prevailing to a certain extent in  parts  of tho" country whero  there is no competition from farmort,*  organizations in tho handling of twine.  But that Is only a part of the saving  to  farmers,  because this  competition  hao brought  about  a  lower  neale of  prices on twino nil over tho country,  resulting In savings of many millions.
