Put a screw eye in the end of the  broom-handle by which to suspend  BIG VW\W mf WHICH fl WTO TO B.C. MIWS  John W. Dafoe cables the Vancouver Province i    Ottawa  states   that    thc   necessary  Canadian  from London: "As thc outcome of negotiations credit which rendered possible this large lumber  carried on by thc Canadian Trade Commission  for the last month, the timber controller of Great  Britain will purchase in Canada half a million  standards of lumber, equivalent in the Dominion  to 1,000,000,000 square feet. . The lumber, which  is to be of all grades, will be bought under the  direction of the lumber controller tlirough British  brokerage houses and the Canadian timber  agents in London, who''will deal directly -with the  Canadian lumber producers. It is understood  that every Canadian producer who is registered  on the lists of the Trade Board at Ottawa will be  given an equal opportunity to sell.  "There also is to be an allocation of purchases  upon a territorial basis, thus ensuring a fair proportion of purchases to Western Canada. All the  British Columbia lumbermen are represented in  London by L. C. Bcalc, timber commissioner for  the Province, who is. attached to. the staff of F. C.  Wade, agent-general, and he will deal * directly  with-thc limber controller. This lumber is to be  bought within the next twelve months. It will  represent a lolal transaction in monev value of  about $40,000,000.".  transaction was arranged somc weeks ago between the Dominion Government and thc Imperial Government. This credit is to be availed  of to the extent that is rendered necessary by the  state of international exchange. The British  Government is to supply the shipping to carry  this lumber to Great Britain. The transaction  indicates the character of business which it is expected the trade mission will be able to obtain  from-now on, particularly upon the continent.  British Columbia's share-in-.this* gigantic deal  will keep all her lumber mills working for* 18  months at least. This enormous demand for  lumber* is accounted for by the fact that "some  of thc largest companies in ������������������������������������������������������Britain are undertaking large housing schemes. They recognize  that the extension of factories depends primarily  upon providing workers with proper homes. Thc  National Metal Chemical Bank, which is interested in several industrial concerns, has engaged  a staff of experts to advise and assist in work  being undertaken by housing societies."  ~WorcP was ~ reccivccl"=iir=En:r  derby last week that W. Cavers,  formerly living here; died at  Wellington, Out., of flu, while  his brother, James, was very  low and thc lattcr's wife, a former Kelowna girl, was dead, of  tbe same fatal illness.  Ptes. JJ. E. C Harris and  Blanchard Elliott returned from  overseas last Friday morning.  Thcy spent Xmas on tlie watcr  with cold spuds and canned salmon for turkey and plumpud-  ding.     J3ut' no  matter;   they're  homc again and all's well.  x  Another dance was held in  Hupel school house last, Thursday night, with an attendance  of thirty-six. Ptc.

Mr. Wattala is  a pioneer of Mara, and one of  Ihe best known and most substantial men of the community.  Hc greatly feels the loss of his  son, whose death by influenza  was reported last week. Mr.  Wattala reports thc deceased  was 25 years of age, not 36 as  was stated by us. Thc deceased  contracted the illness at Sicamous,   where  he  was   foreman  | of thc section gang on lhe C.

His Majesty said:  "At this moment, without parallel in our ^history and in the history of the world, I am glad to  meet you and the representatives of India and the  Dominions beyond the seas; that we may render  thanks to Almighty God for the promise of a  peace now at hand, and tliat I may express to  you, and through you to the peoples whom you  represent, the thoughts that rise in my mind at a  time so solmen.  "I do this with a heart full of grateful recognition of the spontaneous and enthusiastic expressions of loyalty and affection wliich I have bcen  privileged to receive both personally here in tlie  metropolis, and by messages from all parts of  thc Empire. During thc past four years of  national stress and anxiety, my support has been  faith in God and confidence in my people. In the  days to come, days of uncertainly and of trial,  strengthened by the same help, I shall strive to  the utmost of my power to discharge the responsibilities laid upon mc, to uphold the honor of the  Empire, and to promote the well-being of the  peoples over whom I am allied to reign.  "After a struggle5 longer and far more terrible  than anyone could havc foretold, the soil of Brilain remains inviolate. Our navy has, everywhere held thc. seas, ancl wherever thc enemy  could, bc brought to battle it has renewed thc  glories of Drake and Nelson. The incessant work  it has accomplished in overcoming the hidden  menace of thc enemy submarines and guarding  thc ships that have brought food and munitions  to our shores, has been less conspicuous, but  equally essential to success. Without that work,  Brilain might have. starved, and those valiant  soldiers of America who have so much contributed lo our victory could not. havc found their  way hither across thc foam of perilous seas.  "Thc fleet has enabled us to win tlie war.

Short as was their training, thcy havc  imitated and rivalled lhc prowess of thc small  but ever-famous force which, in thc early weeks  of thc war, from Mons to the Marne fought its  magnificent retreat against vastly superior numbers.

"I shall ever remember how lhc Princes of  India rallied to the cause, and with what ardor  her soldiers sustained in many theatres of war,  and under conditions the most diverse and exacting, the martial traditions of their race. Neither  can I forget how the men from lhc Crown Colonics and Protectorates of Great Britain, also  fighting amid novel and perilous scenes, exhibited  a.constancy and devoton second to none.  To all these, and to their commanders, who,  service, may we not be proud also of the attitude  maintained by the whole people at home? Unwonted privations have been cheerfully borne,  and the hearts of those who were facing the  stress of battle have been cheered by the steadfast confidence with which those whom*they had  left at home awaited the issue, and assured them  of their unfaltering devotion to the prosecution  of the war. ,  "While we find in these things cause for joy  and pride, our hearts go out in sorrowful sympathy to the parents, the wives, arid the children  who have lost those who were the light and stay  of their lives. They gave freely of what was  most precious to them. They have borne their  griefs with unrepining fortitude, knowing that  the sacrifice was ni-_c for our dear country and  for a righteous cause. May thcy find consolation  in the thought that the sacrifice was not made in  vain. These brave men dicd for Right and Humanity.    Both have been vindicated.  "In this great struggle, which wc hope will determine.for good the future of the world, it is a  matter of ceaseless pride to us that wc havc been  associated with Aliics whose spirit has been  identical with our own, and who, amid sufferings  that have in so many cases greatly exceeded ours,  havc������������������ devoted their united strength to the vindication of rightcousnss and freedom: France,  whose final deliverance, achieved by onc of thc  greatest of commanders, Marshal Foch, has been  the reward of a sacrifice and endurance almost  beyond compare; Belgium, devastated and held  in bondage for nigh upon five ycars, but now restored to her liberty and her King; Italy, whose  lofty spirit has at length found its national fulfillment; and our remaining Aliics, upon whose  horizon, till lately so dark, the light of emancipa-  tin already dawns.  "During the last one-and a half ycars wc arc  also proud to Jiave bcen directly associated with  thc great sister-Commonwealth across the ocean,  the United States of America, whose resources  and valor havc exercised so powerful an iriflu-  cncc.in lhc attainment ol those high ideals  which were hcr single aim.  "Now that thc clouds of war are being swept  from the sky new tasks arise before us. Wc sec  more clearly some duties that have been, neglected, some weaknesses thai may retard our  onward march. Liberal provision must bc made  for those whose exertions by land and sea have  saved us. We have to create a better Britain,  to bestow more care on thc health and well-being  of the people, and to ameliorate further the conditions of labor.,.

WHAT IS A BOARD OF TRADE ?  We ask "this -question in all seriousness, and  with the sole object of getting its position as a  semi-public body placed properly in the minds of  our readers. The thought was repeatedly brought  up by thc general discussion at the joint meeting  of the councils of the city and municipality and  ihe board of trade at the Cily Tlall, Armstrong,  last Thursday. There were between 30 and 40  citizens present, and thc discussion while tense  in spots was in the right spirit of progress. There  vPas not a dissenting voice a.s lo lhe advisability  of sending a representative lo Ottawa as a member of liie delegation which was lo be sent from  the Okanagan to urge- upon the Government the  importance of the construction of llie Kamloops  to Vernon, railway this year. The mccling was  unanimously in favor of Mayor Wright being  ihe delegate, and the cost of sending him was  cslimatcd at $-150 or $500. The proposition came  from lhc council of the municipality that Ihcj'  would put up one-third lhe expense againsl one-  third by lhc cily and one-lhird by lhc board of  trade.    This is whal lhe discussion hinged upon.  Il was pointed out by several speakers lhat  there seemed lo bc a mistaken idea as lo whal a  board of trade is. It is simply an organization of  citizens public-spirited enough to take hold in a  public way of questions of interest lo lhe whole  community, and lo give their lime, and pay the  board of trade membership fee, in order lo advance any proposition which means progress lo  lhc town and districl. Thc board having no way  of gelling funds except through taxing its members, the proposition of its putting up a third of  the expense was considered unjust and loo hard  upon thc members, all of'whom are ratepayers  and pay their share of the expense borne'by the  city. Tlie hoard of trade, it was pointed out, is  oira different basis than cither the city council  or thc municipal council, in that both of these  public bodies levy a general tax on all thc people  within their confines; whereas thc board if trade  can raise funds only, through its limited membership, yy/rhe discussion finally, ended by the board  xindeirtafcmg loyally to see the thing through,  yet recognizing Uie hardship it would impose on  NO MORE CAMOUFLAGING  It would appear lhat Allied troops are not to  be continued to be sent to Russia to protect the  "interests" of outside commercial enterprises. A  few days ago, one of the prominent British government men staled publicly that Britain would  not send any more troops to Russia, and that if  troops were needed there, America was suggested  as the power to send them. But" America says, No  she won't. Ramond G. Carroll, special correspondent in Paris wilh the American commission  lo negotiate, wires the Philadelphia Ledger that  "American troops arc not going to bc sent into  Russia as militant pacifists, nor arc lhcy going to  bc rushed inlo Russia camouflaged as food distributors. If Russia is lo be policed because of  Bolshcvikism, olher nations musl undertake the  job. This is the settled policy of thc American  Government. American Iroops arc going to bc  sent homc wilh lhc greatest possible rapidity,  and 90 per cent of our 'first two millions in  Europe' either will havc landed upon Yankee soil  or bc on llie high seas steaming thither before  lhc end of October."  Those Canadian Iroops which havc bcen sent  to Siberia, and Ihosc- in the process of sending,  should likewise bc brought home. Russia has  millions of able-bodied men with which to do  hcr own policing. If all havc turned Bolshc-  vikists they probably did so for good reason.  When the "reason" has been remedied thcy will  turn back again. In the meantime thcy, should  he permitted to organize their own government  and police themselves. There has already been  too much camouflage about this whole Russian  business. As well send troops into1 any other  country down and out and unable to defend itself  because avc did not like thc character of the men  at its head.

Very  often, when questions of a public nature require  this, that or the other thing to hc done, many  persons will say, Let the hoard oi' trade do it!;  AH these things require the spending of money,  the sending of delegates, etc. And is it right to  expect the few public-spirited men of the board  of trade lo dip. down, dip down, dip down, to pay  for thc things that benefit all?  MAKING CITIZENS OF ALIENS  Undoubtedly tbe greatest blunder made by the  Borden Government was when it disfranchised  thousands of alien born citizens on thc eve of the  lasl Dominion elections. A greater error could  not have bcen 'made by any government. It was  -oppertunist^lcigislaUiOT^thm^  more lasting than most of us now realize. How  differently they dealt with alien-born citizens in  ;thc United States! Thcy did nol take away from  tbciu the right to vote, and thereby taking from  them the responsibilities of cilizenship. Uncle  Sam did not say to his pro-enemy citizens, You  Ciinnol vote, therefore you need not fight. No.  J-fc said in efleet, "You came here seeking freedom, you must now help to preserve il." It put  it right up to the alien, and hy onc fell sweep  took away his alienship, while our legislation  took away his cilizenship. One policy made  'citizens, loyal-and true, out of-aliens; thc other  made aliens, cunning and resentful, out of citizens. Onc was a broad policy of nationhood, thc  other a petty game of politics.  Taking  away  a  man's  citizenship  after once  given is  no small affair.    It might be-modern  pohtics-but il is a very poor grade of statesmanship.   It will be a long time before Canada overcomes  the after effects of that pernicious piece  of legislation.    Wc were  lold it was  necessary  war-time legislation.    But is it not far easier to  deal with  a  citizen  than with an  alien  in wartime?    A citizen must lake on and carry thc responsibilities   of    citizenship.      Disloyalty   in   a  cilizen of a country may mean death.    An alien  is put into an interment camp, housed and fed by  the government.    In one case men arc made to  take up the work of citizenship, and to fight, if  called  upon,  to defend  that cilizenship.    In the  other, men arc made resentful by taking from  them thc right to become good citizens. > ���������������������������������������������?,  way; of statements from Ottawa that J^Canacfe  must have a continuance of the Unionist form of  coalition. These statements are more to sound:  the public pulse than anything else. They do not  come from either of the old political parties. \\  is, by the way,. perfectly natural for those men  of both old parties who joined hands to carry the  last election, to strongly favor a continuance of  lhe program by which they will continue to hold  office. Thcy are still 'men, and politicians. AH  lhe high-sounding talk about the honors of  sacrifice and thc heroism of duty doing have not  altered thc case, nor changed Ihem as men. And  it is extremely doubtful if a general election will  be held much before the Unionist Government's  time of office has expired. If it had been possible  to bring on an election immediately on thc close  of hostilities, as was done in England, there  might have been some object in hurrying mallei's  here in Canada, but in is too late now.

Theodore Roosevelt. Col. Roosevelt was one of those picturesqe  Americans that the world is the better for their  having lived. Fearless and honorable always, he  was a man of dynanr'c force if of no brilliance.  Friends have said of him that lie carried the law  of "the big stick" Vo far. but thcrc is a question  as to lhis. Onc thing wc know: whatever Col.  Roosevelt tackled he''did the problem fearlessly  and without gloves. He was a bigger, man than  any parly could hold, and in 1912, after thc Republican party declined to accept him as its standard bearer, he organized a third party, and in  spite of lhc fact that hc was opposed by both old  parlies, he polled a tremendous vole, but was  defeated by Woodrow Wilson. ...  thc payment of taxes compulsory at the present  time, those ratepayers who now pay promptly  would have to pay 18% less, and our opinion is  that the Council are to be congratulated on this  amount being what it is, and making ends meet,  was taken care of during the year. Your tax col-'as in some municipalities this figure is as high as  lections increased over the previous year to the 147%; and administration of this kind should Jfe  amount of $4,298.36.

As to reasons for their presence  any excuse seems to serve,   Our men here sip. not  require Uie advice nor thc assistance of these people.

At the present rates  charged by  the country  newspapers of thc Province it has bcen estimated  that thev should carry about sixty-five per cent,  of advertising to thirty-five per.cent, of news in  their columns in order to bring any reasonable  return on the investment.   While rates and conditions vary, and it would be difficult to lay down  a hard and fast rule, it may bc safely said that  any  newspaper  charging the  average  contract  rate for display, such as 25c to 35c per inch, is  not making expenses if it carries less than fifty  per cent of advertising.    Any papers charging  less than 25c per inch are faring much worse.  Unless  they  carry  a  very high  prbportton  of  advertising..,.. v- v.  Tatting tlidse (acts to start with, the Penticton  Herald proceeds to elucidate on Okanagan conditions in the newspaper field: "The following  figures showing the average percentage of advertising carried by a humher of the up-country  papers in a series of publication days covering  not only the exceptional-and extra advertising,  such as the Victory 1-oah, J>ut the "day in and day  out" volume, should prove illuminating. They  will indicate at all events ahout how far shor* the  'interior weekly comes of making expenses these  davs, apart altogether from the question of obtaining a profit. Tlie Kamloops Standard-Sentk  nel and one .Kelowna paper in the period examined carried fifty per cent advertising; the  Vernon News, Penticton Herald, and Trail News.  45 per cent; thc Princeton Star, Summerland  Review, Merritt Herald, Salmon Arm Observer,  Okanagan Commoner, and one Kelowna paper,  ahout 40 per cent. Many of the other up-country  sheets had only 35 per cent of advertising. So  , far as could he ascertained, there was no average  lover"50per ccntrTrnirvery^few^as^higlras^S^per  cent.   The general average was ahout 40.  "Newspaper managers arc not whining about  thc situation, but communities which hope for  better publications may as well realize now as  any time, that thc town paper cannot increase  its size till its rates and it patronage go up. Both  must rise if any profit is to he made in thc business. If every merchant and advertiser added 10  or 20 per cent torhis advertising appropriation  thc newspapers would soon he iri a position to  give the home town that publicity service which  it is the aim of all journals to provide."  The national paper of the Returned Soldiers  association carries a question column in each issue which places concisely before its readers  some of the larger problems which arc looming  up for settlement. These questions arc in the  right direction. They must cause discussion and  discussion certainly will lead to some solution  which will l*e followed by action. Here are a  few of the" p*_#j������������������ms the returned men are cogitating:  What should be done for the many Canadian  soldiers who, upon discharge, marriage and a return to civil life, find that the nature of their  wounds debar them from taking life-insurance,  except at a prohibitive cost. (This question is already being solved, by the Dominion Government proposing to inaugurate an insurance  policy similar to that m vogue in the States,  covering all soldiers.)

Along with others many notions about motherhood are falling by the way.  There is no. hint in Nature that Motherhood is  ever shameful or disgraceful. Only a social and  legal fiction ever makes it so. Less than five per  cent of thc children in orpan asylums are orphans  ���������������������������the rest are waifs and outcasts. If thc state did  not make thc mother a criminal; if society did  not look upon her as disgraced; and if the church  did not refer to her as "ruined," most of the  mothers of these "orphans" would cling to them  After coming in from a 20-mile "hike   the  offlccr-in-commandJ>Xa.ngg^-C^.E_gy^L4^-_:  fore dismissing them,"I want all the men who  arc too tired to take another hike to take two  paces forward.

Powell, of Peachland, B.C., will touch a responsive chord in the heart of many. It is beautifully  told: '77 7: ������������������������������������������������������y.-Vy- .<  ."'Tis-Sabbath"'evening in the far-distant Homeland. The bell of the village churcli tells of the  hour of prayer and praise. From tlie sky comes  the sound of the lark as he sings his song of  ���������������������������thankfulness and of joy preparatory to retirement in the world's greenage���������������������������his bed. The lane  down which we saunter is edged with the white  of hawthorne blossoms and the pale pink-yellow  of the honeysuckle. Our lungs inhale the soft  air, and feelings of contentment^ pervade :man's  whole being. On the,hill in the near distance  sheep are leisurely browsing, occasionally uttering their bleating caUtelUng their young not,to  loiter by the way nor travel fat afield. That peculiar sound wliich informs the shepherd of the  whereabouts of the flock comes tinkling through  space adding its music to thc general sense of  satisfaction.  "The twilight deepens. Objects become increasingly indistinct, and it is with uncanny feeling that we pause to listen, and peer, into the approaching darkness to discover what it is that  has suddenly attracted attention. At once we  find evidence of that old yet ever-new story  which has been told from earliest ages, and  which wiirbe repeated in a thousands different  forms until this planet of ours has rim its course.  Seated on the grass* beneath the sheltering  branches of a big oak tree, are a young couple so  engrossed each in the other as to be oblivious to  all surroundings. And thus we leave them to the  pleasures of a sacred love, with a fervent hope  lhat Father Time has in store for them many  blessings and few sorrows;  S "A change takes place. A coolness penetrates  the air! Birds flutter from tree to tree as though  seeking shelter from they know not what. The  noise of thunder reaches us from afar. Large  drops of. rain fall. The hitherto open coat is  closely buttoned; footsteps are hurried. Sounds  of animal life are hushed. Nothing is heard but  the pattering of the rain as it falls upon the  leaves; the shrieking of the rapidly-rising wind;  and the growing war of heaven's artillery bang-,  ing*crashing overhead, while the landscape is ilr  lumined for miles around by lightning darts as  though fiends in an invisible world were frolicking with the nervousJsystern. of. weak\humanity.  ��������������������������� ��������������������������� ' ��������������������������� ��������������������������� ��������������������������� ��������������������������� :   ���������������������������   \',t      i ���������������������������'''  i$  "Wc are in a crowded city. All is hurry ahd  bustle and clang. Everywhere .men .and -women  strive for money. . Pleasure and .GainL are the,  objects of all/. In homes of. poverty, and'in  hidden dens of iniquity, where robbery and  crimes innumerable are hegotten, these purposes  hdlcl sway. The gauntyeyed husband, and his  starving wife,_.;cherlsh.ing their slcin-and-hone  offspring, nhd comfort in gloating_bver tbe posr  nihilities tlieir wild imaginings place within reach  when the time comes for the bloated capitalist to  he brought low. \ln0the higher-^walHs"of life  Wealth is wade God, and the: getting of JcnawJl-  edge and wisdom occupies a secondary place. Btit  it was ^not cheifly these ehings that on this particular occasion possessed men's minds in this  crowded city. No! When the bar-tenders in the  drink shops were busy; when the theatres and  the opera houses were full; when people were  bestowing plaudits upon actors and singers���������������������������in  the midst" of all this gaiety and relaxation���������������������������was  pronounced the dread word���������������������������WAP*! As in the  peaceful village lane, and by the quiet hillside  the, thunderstorm arose with terrific fury and  wildnessrso^now"the"mad"\\ild^Be"a"st^of"Jpurbpe=  breajes his bounds and sets all the world ablaze  with angry passion.  "Shortly before the hour of midnight of a certain day in August four years ago, at Portsmouth  and other naval stations, the curtains fell in all  piaccs of entertainment where sailors were  known to congregate and the announcement  made that England���������������������������thc British Empire���������������������������was at  war. prom thc public stage sailors were ordered  to at once report on board their respective ships  for active service. Thc order was received with  those ringing cheers wliich none but British sailors can give, and wilhin a few hours those gallant  men were putting out to sea with the grim intent  deeply rooted in them of .enchaining* that* mad  wild beast of Europe. The military followed in  like manner. And then happened something the  like of which was never seen before. From Easl  and from West, from South, from all parts of the  globe where the Union Jack flies came enthusiastic response to the Call to Arms. No need-for  details. Quickly was recognized the hideo.usness  of tlie menace the Kaiser had thrown over the  world, and, as time proceeded, all peoples of advanced civilization were fighting side .by side for  the supremacy of Truth and^Righteoiisness.  "The. mind goes back well nigh two thousand  j-ears. About that time there lived a man named  John. He"was clad in clothing of camel's hair,  and had a belt of leather around his waist. His  food was locusts and wild honey. _His aim in life  was to prepare the way for the public advent of  his cousin, whose name was Jesus, a man only a  few months younger than himself. Tlie birth  of Jesus had been heralded by a choir of angels  singing in beauteous strain these words: "Glory  to God in tlie Highest, on earth peace, good-will  toward men."  '-"Time'-passed: Jesus was taken away, leaving  behind Him an-example and teachings of the  grandest character. During the years which followed millions of men and women banded themselves together into groups called "Christian,"  after the name of "Jesus, who was called the  Christ." These bodies of men and .women were  not confined to one country > or.clime���������������������������-to one  race/or one people. All these various people  looked, and still profess to look, upon Jesus as  the stem of a great jree of which" they are the  branches. But the branches rotted, and are still  rotting. Divisions crept in; man-made, creeds  became rampant, and the should-be home of *  Christ became a house divided against itself, so  that when the Mad Wild Beast broke loose, instead of a united Christian church reaching forth  jts hands to capture hiin, arid bind hini, and keep  him from doing harm, these Christians were  found playing a game of international politics,  opposing each othcr according to the respective  nations to which, they held allegiance.  "As onc ponders upon tliis condition the mind  is  puzzled   to  understand  the  meaning  of  the  words which these Christians sing:���������������������������  "We are. not "divided���������������������������  All one body, we."  "There is something terribly sad here���������������������������-almost  ghastly. A Voice within, which will not be stilled,  cries aloud that if these words spoke truth, this  awful war could never have blasted the world.  "My spirit," it says, "is sufficient for all things;  but alas, alas, the churches- the people who profess to follow its leadings^ instead of being united  are split asunder."   And so it is.   Romanism and  Protestantism���������������������������all   professing   to   be   Christian.  The  Christians  of  Germany;   the1 Christians  of  England'and  the British Empire generally; the  Christians  of  Austria,   and  those of Italy;   the'  Christians of the United States of. America, and  those of Middle Europe���������������������������had they bcen united in  tlie spirit, of Him whom thcy call Master,, there  couftHiave been no .war���������������������������it would have been impossible���������������������������their influence would' have been  too  strong.   Christianity is all right, but what.of the.  church?    Is.it free from blame in this, matter?

After the clos(������������������of llie  recent conferences and the public demonstrations  attending President Wilson's visit to London,  one of the foremost British statesmen summed  up the situation by saying: "I would nol think.of  having the peace congress close until it had established a league of'nation's as outlined'by President Wilson, as the British nation has clearly  shown that it expects that to be done."
