He figured that''-delect  area could absorb 200 carloads  of apples. In 1983 Creston has  already shipped 280 cars to, say  nothing of trucks. Nelson has  sent out 50 ears, Arrow Lakes  about 20, and Grand Forks 200  cars Abont 500 cars for a  market wanting but . 200: In  addition the preferred area demands a number of tailor made  cars,? which this district cannot  supply*  Referring to Mr. Haskins** visit  the chairman stated the first plan  evolved contemplated handling  marketing by five zones, Creston being number fjve and included Kootenays, Arrow Lakes and  Grand Forks. Mr. Jiaskins, during his stay, had been con vinced  there should be a zone for the  Cresto"a=Bosw8ll section, .another  for the Kootenays and still another for Grand Forks.  The chainnan said under present plans a grower could ship  through any selling agency," but  the committee control might include issuing permits to ship, and  the drafting of a contract to give  full effect to committee control.  Mr.TIJttlejohn observtd that to  date financing of the 1933 stabilization board had been done solely by the shippers. Now that  the movement was to give grrow-  ers full control the growers must  realize they?

From tbe opening, play there was little  doubt as' to the outcome of the first  game, the locals bein obviously a more  experienced team.

On the first  penalty '-��������� called ; f������ieen ������gan placed  Bonners on,' the board for oue point.  Two more baskets by NelKPayne and  Ma-rjorie Levirs gave the Io a* misses a  mice lead, when Pauline Baden took a  long pass to sink a field goal for the  visitors. Two more baskets were con -  tributed by Marteiio and Nell Payne to  end the quarter, 12-8. The second  quarter saw a more determined defense  by the AHaericans. but Graaten sisttj-  talned the? lead. Half-time score was  12 8. Play in the second half "wa* a  little ragged, with the Bonr.Grs' tean-  flying, distress signals before the game  ended. E&oa Davidson, played a nice  guard ^me, but could not prevent the  score from fattening. Dorothy Olivier  broke into the scoring* column with a  free throw and a field goal.

B.   ������  Hrxtaiix Shows   1 he   VA^ ay  Using lufra-Ked Rays  When one reads of the very little accomplished by the World "Economic  Conference, and of the adjournment of ths World Disarmament Conference  without any results having been achieved, and. coupled with, these failures  to advance the cause of peace, official announcement is made, of rc-arm"ng  in Germany, of the largest military and naval budgets yet known in Japan  of a great programme of cruisers construct'ori by the "United States, of  hundreds of millions-spent on fortifications by France, ens is incl'ned to ask:  Are the nations of the world deternvhed on self-destruction, and is it their  desire that civilization as "We now know it shall b3 destroyed?  "When we recall the efforts made following the Great War to set up the  League of Nations as a form of international machinery tc ma'titam and  promote the peace of the world; as we recall the fact that in the years s'nea  1918 the L&agUe has, on more than one occasion, been instrumental in. preventing war, but that more recently it failed to check Jap"������ne.������*e a^gressim  in China and Manchuria; as we witness Japan's-, defiance of tho League and  withdrawal from it, followed by the withdrawal of Germany, rnrl now the  threatened resignation of Italy, we are further inclined to ask: Is there no  nation that can and will give leadership to the world in?the cau~e of p2a.ee?  Is physical disarmament the first and necessary step to an assurance  of peace? Tf so. then Great Britain has provided leadership, but, alas the  other nations have refused to follow.  Speaking in the House of Lords recently. Lord Londonderry. Secretary  for Air in the National Government, stated that Britain has only 850 first  line airplanes compared with 1,650 in Prance, from 1,400 to 1,500 in Russia,  1.000 to 1,100 in the "United States, and 1,000 to l.lOu in Italy. Britain's Srst  line aircraft have "bee*"*, reduced to little more th^ut 20 t������sr cent, of her postwar strength with the result that Britain now stands in the number of her  military and naval airplanes only fifth in the list of nations.  Sir John Simon, Foreign Secretary of Britain, in a recent review of  Britain's efforts to set an example in disarmament, stated in emphatic  terms that Britain has set an example, has led the .way. "No reasonable  or "instructed person can possibly suggest," said Sir John, "that we have  not reduced our own armaments to the lowest point to which we could go  by unilateral action. It will not be thought a waste of time if I gave the  House three or four figures."  Of the British Navy, Sir John Simon then said:  "Take the Navy���������I am going to give comparisons not with the end  of the war -when -we had piled up enormous forces; I am going to the year  in which the war began.  "Since 1914 the capital ships of the British Commonwealth have been  reduced from 69 to 15: its cruisers from 10S to 54; its destroyers from 216  to 152, and its submarines from 74 to 59. In 1914 we had a class of vessel  called a. torpedo boat, of which there were 106 in cornm'ss'on in 1914. They  have disappeared entirely. At the same time there has been a reduction in  personnel, as compared with 1914, from 152.C00 to 9Q.0QQ."  So much for leadership in naval disarmament given by Britain. Sir  John Simon continued: "Take the Army���������Since 1914, the regular Army has  been reduced from 258.996 to 205.534. This has been effected by d'svanding  nine regiments of cavalry, 61 batteries and companies of artillery, 21  companies of Royal Engineers, and 21 battal'ons of infantry and three  batteries of Colonial troops. At the same time the Special Reserve has been  reduced from 80,120 in 1914 to 24,600; and there has been a reduction in the  Territorial Army during this period of 141,702. In 1914 it was 312,000; today  it is 170,000. In addition^ during the same period, 18 regiments of cavalry,  31 "battalions of infantry and seven battalions of pioneers have been dis- j  banded by the Indian Army. That has resulted in art approximate reduction  of 17,000 men. ,    ���������,,;,       .-,.  .���������.*. .  Instead of following this wonderful leadership by Great Brita'n nrdis-.  armament, the other great nations of the world have actually increased  their fighting forces and voted larger armament budgets than ever before  in times of peace. If disarmament fails, the British Commonwealth cannot  be held in any sense responsible or blameworthy; Britain has'done its part;  the -world has refused to follow thp British example.  As a result., the world to-day is drifting, if, indeed, its not actually  ���������washing, into war. And the question arises, and call3 for an answer, whether  Britain's action in so largely disarming was, after all, the right way to  encourage and induce disarmament by others ? In fact, may it not be that  in Britain's action in so sharply reducing her own armaments, other mtions  saw an opportunity to secure unto themselves greater potver; an opportunity  to achieve certain national ambitions and, if necessary, defy others?  The failure of other nations to follow Britain's lead in disarmament only  serves to prove what has been stated in this column on previous occasions,  i.e., that physical diarmament by the nations is not good enough; it is not a  sufficient guarantee of"peace; in tact, if followed by some nations and not by  all it may even prove provocative of war. What is necessary, what in fact  must precede physical disarmament, is a mental and spir'tiial d'sarmament  by the people themselves. They must free themselves of their narrow nationalistic ideas, their suspicions of other peoples and nations, their racial and  religious passions, and prejudices. These are thc things that cause war,  and as long as people entertain and cherish such thoughts and ideas, and as  long as other people, whether politicians, or churchmen, or war profiteering  classes, or self-seekers of any kind who play upon and pander to the passions  of people, continue to use them to inflame the masses, just so long will  there be war.  This mental and spiritual disarmament among the peoples of the world  must come first; until it does come there will be" little headway made in  the matter of physical disarmament. Without tho former, the latter form  of disarmament would be vain in any event.

The^. whole range of  known rays runs from wireless rays,  which may boas much as a mile  long, to cosmic rays which are in-  aln.teslmally short, he said, The cosmic rays have such energy that they  will pierce through the thickness cf  a metre of lead. Th's is dhe to the  fact that the frequency of vibr*"ticn  <������f a. X-tty   iiuzw&a^si us  its  wftyc-li-ngt������  decreases. Thti infra-red rays are  next in length above the familiar  spectrum of visible lTght.  .. Sir Robert referred-to soma of the  better-known uses of infra-red rays.  First in these was infra-red photography in which great advances have  lately been made. The magnince~*t  aerial photographs of the Everest  range -were one Instance, and in th.2  Un'.ted States landscape photographs  are being taken up to-a distance of  300 m'les. Such photographs are  made possible 7 by the use of infrared rays, which are not -scattered as  are ordinary light rays and can therefore pierce fog.  The lecturer* referred to the medical uses of this photography, -which  is valuable ih revealing skin conditions such as varicose Veins, and to  the research which has been attempted by scientists ��������� interested in dye-  stuffs. It is thought that the dyed  cloths most suitable for wear in the  tropics can be found by study of the  extent to which different fabrics ahd  dyes absorb the-sun's rays. Sir Robert expressed the opinion, however,  that research would have to go much  farther from the visible spectrum before poncrete ..results could be  achieved in this -field.  that practically the world over trade  was better than a year ago, and that  In Canada; for the bettor part of the  year, definite improvement in business had been going on. Canada's external commerce' had also grown in  volume.' i, v:���������..���������.������������������'- .7  Sir Charles also had a cheerful  word regarding improved conditions  in Great Britain. The country's faith  in simple, well proved methods had  once more been justified? with the result that Britain's credit stood aa  high as ever, and London had re*  gained her  position as  the financial  im- r Federal ReseK-**- and the Reconstruct  tion Finance .Corporation in the Unit-  erf states shows how little the climin^  ation ol political influence can be relied upon, he said.

Joint Central  Manager, reviewing'tne7 annual statement of the bank, pointed out that of  the total assets of 976S,500,0uO the  liquid assets aggregated $492,500,000,  or 71.15 pet cent, lot tho liabilities to  the public*  Of special interest^was tJis-anounce-  j-ijent that the#ahk ?|tovv has- over cne  million'''depc3*jat^  In summing up, Mr. Dodds  s-aid:  Royal Commission On Banking  In regard to the question of establishing a central bank in Canada, S'r  Charles pointed out that two members of. the Royal Commission were  Canadians thoroughly versed in.; the  banking and economic conditions of  this country. These two members are  not in accord with the rest of the  Commission in their findings. He drew  attention to ths- cost of operating  such an institution and the probability that the bank would .always  be under the control of a political  party and therefore subject to political influences.

Can jPlaj" Tunes By Rubbing Palms  Of Hands .Together.,  A farmer- boy with musical heads  showed city folk in Chicago recently  his strange talent in playing musical  tunes by merely rubbing/ together h's  palms.  He discovered music in his hands  years ago when he was going home  through the woods from grade school,  he said.' He had his hands in his  overcoat pocket. As it was cold and  there was no mittens, lie took, his  hands out and began rubbing them  together to get warm when he noticed^ a squeaking sound. When, he  got home he Icept experimenting and  practicing until he could finally grind  out "litahkee Doodle." :  Sver since that ������.uu<^. lie u$s beeii  trying to teach his friends in. Traversa City, the town nearest, his farm  home, how to make music with their  hands, but only a few notes can he  get out of any of them.  "When the    family   get    tired   of  hearing  xne,   I v/ould get up  c xtra  early, go down to the barn, and do  the chores, and then sit and practice.  I would go out in the woods and listen to the birds and the animals and  try to imitate 1*hem with way hands."  He   laaned   over   and   said,   "Bullfrog',' while -with a twist and squeeze  of his hands out came the croak of  the amphibian. Quickly he changed to  the sjound of the chipmunk, the wood-  chuck, the call of    the    robin,    the  mournful note of the whip-poor-will,  the  harsh   cry   of  the   blue jay,   the  chirp of a common sparrow���������all by  pressing,, his palms and fingers.

Surgeons, it was explained have  for years been able to transplant skin  from one part of the body to another  on the same parsons but a transplantation of tissue from one person  to another almost invariably resulted  in death. The method described by  Dr. Stone consisted of growing the  tissue for a time outside the body in  a culture medium made from the  blood serum of the prospective recipient of the transplant.  The tissue, by tho method, becomes adapted to its future host, it  wan stated, and when finally im-  plmitcd in him growti quite -norm ally  and survives for an indefinite time.
