ARMSTRONG. B.C.. THURSDAY, JANUARY 16, 1919  \T  Subscription. $2.00 per vear: 5c the copv.  NO OPPOSITION  Both Armstrong and Enderby  Elect City Officers by Acclamation.  That the ratepayers of Armstrong are well satisfied with  the way the civic business has  been handled by Mayor Wright  and the men who have assisted  him as aldermen the past year,  was made evident at thc public  meeting held Monday night,  when there were more speakers  present prepared to speak than  there were people to listen to  them. It was evident, too, from  thc fact that only enough candidates were named on nomination day ,to; fill the offices, and  all were elected by acclamation.  Aid. H. A. Fraser and Aid. C.  Creed retiring, Messrs. A. Adair  and J. Thompson were elected  to fill the vacancies. With these  changes the council stands as it  was in 1918.  No change was made on the  Board of School Trustees,. Mr.  Adair's term expiring, hc was  re-elected.  For the municipality, no  changes were made in the 19181 ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������.  council, while on the school 0n Tuesday evening in the  board, Mr. A. Ford resigned and, Armstrong Methodist Church, a  Mr. W. E. Chappie was elected splendid  treat was enjoyed by  place. There is left to mourn  the deep loss a husband and  three children, ranging in age  from 7 to 12.' The sympathy of  the community goes out to these  in their loneliness and grief. The  funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon, and was conducted by Rev. W. Stott.  RED CROSS CAMPAIGN  The Red Cross campaign in  Armstrong is going smoothly,  and the committee in charge is  sanguine that the quota of $1175  will be reached. Although thc  canvass of the honies was not  made until today, (Thursday)  voluntary subscriptions havc  been pouring in. By Tuesday  night $215 was on hand, and as  much again was in sight. Tlie  Municipality of Spallumcheen is  not being canvassed, but a grant  will likely be made by thc council on Monday evening. Thc  spontaneity of the townpeoplc  in subscribing voluntarily is  splendid, reducing the work of  thc canvassers to a minimum.  Successful Lecture Recital  in his place, and Matt Hasscn,  an appreciative audience in thc  f"        fleart failure  Tlie death occurred al the  Armstrong Jfospital on Monday  evening of Mrs* Rricjcner, of  Pleasant Valley. Peath was due  to heart failure. The deceased  Jady, who was a young woman  of^O^years^of^ageHiad^heerHJl  of infjenza in Carstairs, Alta.,  last fall. The family moved to  Armstrong about a month ago  principally on account of Mrs.  Rrickncr's health, and Mr.  Rrickner had rented the Renaud  Dr. C. S. Eby and Mr. C. A. Eby  of Saskatoon. Dr. Eby gave a  masterful presentation oi the  vision of the prophet Isaiah in  dramatic style, while his son,  Mr. Eby, sang -with a rich baritone numerous selections of the  prophecy f1set to ..liiusic.

Barnes, in response to thc requisition which  was generally signed last week,  accepted the nomination for  mayor, and Aid. Coltart, who so  faithfully has occupied the chair  ihe past year, allowed himself  to be again nominated. Three  new members were elected as  aldermen: Messrs. Frank A.  Adams, John L. Purnham, and  John A. MilJer. Aid. Nichol was  re-elecjed.  Sidney H. Speers was ejected  police commissioner, Mr- A. Cr  Scaling was re-ejected School  trustee, and tyr- Thos. A.

Mrs. W. A. As|in and family  returned Wednesday from Van-  converr-Seatle^aiid^other^coast  points where they were visiting  relatives. While at the coast, a  sister of Mrs. Aslin died, leaving  an only child, which Mrs. Aslin  hrought hack with her to Armstrong.  WELCOMING THEM HOME  Another Very Pleasant Affair  Given in Honor of the Boys  Come Home.  Last Friday evening a meeting  of citizens was held in the City  Hall to hear the report of the  committee appointed to look  after and to prepare a welcome  for the Enderby and district  soldier boys' home-coming. This  committee has served some  months, and now that the boys  are coming home in greater  numbers, they wished to know  what policy it was desired they  should pursue. After prolonged  discussion by thc large number  of men and women present, it  was decided to make the point  of giving every returned man a  public welcome home, even if it  were only a quiet social gathering of the citizens. It was decided further to .leave in the  hands of the committee for  them to work out, a definite  plan looking to the inauguration, of an annual soldiers' home  day to be held in Enderby as a  part of the city's commemoration of the heroic deeds, of the  men who went overseas.  Following the expressed wish  of. the meeting, the committee  at once proceeded to prepare  for an informal social evening  which they decided to hold in  K. of P. hall on Monday, Jan.  13th.  Thc social was held, and it  proved a great heart-warmer.  The hall was. packed to the  doors ahd a splendid spirit of  fellowship prevailed." Acting-  Mayor Coltart made the speech  of the evening, extending to the  returned .boys-present the earnest good wishes and welcome  home of the community. Mr.  Coltart spojee briefly and his remarks rang true of the feelings  of every citizen present. He  vividly pictured the, part the  hoys from Canada played in the  great world war; recited thdr  deeds of valor leading up to  final victory, and then referred  to their glad home-coming. Jfe  spojee feelingly of the losses, and  in sympathy for those who  mourn.  Puring the evening several  musical. selections were given,  games^played, and refreshments  served hy the ladies of the committee. After the social part of  the evening, the floor was  cleared and the young people  enjoyjEd^a^fev^lxoursVdanciog^  He says it therefore becomes  the duty of every interested  party to furnish all specific  data they may have, to a .committee of the B. C. Fruit Growers' Association that will in all  probabi li ty be appointed- to pre-  scnt their case before the Board  of Railway Commissioners.  Notification that the fruit industry will desire a hearing by  them has been given.  The increase in some instances is over 100 per cent.  Just what effect this will have  upon the fruit industry in this  Province cannot be determined  with any degree of exactness.  ��������������������������� The following table shows the.  proposed increase in rates front  Kelowna, which would also apply to other Valley points:  To  Calgary    200  Edmonto    . . . .210.

FAST GAME OF HOCKEY  Enderby Intermediates Win a  Hard Fought "Go'; with the  Armstrong Team.  A large and very enthusiastic  crowd of hockey fans witnessed  the game between Armstrong  and Enderby on the Enderby  rink last Friday night. The  teams were well-balanced, and  but for the several little scraps  on the ice between the players,  there was nothing wanting. It  was the first game of the season  between these teams, and, perhaps the fighting can be overlooked since nobody was hurt  and all enjoyed themselves. If  anything, the Armstrong team  had the best of it in weight, and  perhaps, two or three stronger  individual players, but this did  not count against the better  combination playing and faster  work of the Enderby bunch.  *In the first third, Enderby put  four pucksjntq^ the visitors' net;  then Vic Poison, Enderby's  rover, lost a skate and had to  33o 126.4 i put on a substitute in the ncxt  growers,  thei1    .   ,    ..   .     . .        .

For  more  than half an hour the broncho  doubled up like a.jacknife with  his head between his knees and  went   at  it   stiff-legged.

All the returned men can see. in thc projects now is that thcy are asked to take upon  themselves a piece of land and a heavy debt lhat  will require years of hard labor to work off. Anything of a similar nature has never bcen tried out  wilhin their ken, andall thcy can go by is what  thcy havc seen of farmers in past years���������������������������normal  ycars���������������������������when war prices for farm produce were  not in vogue and the farmers'' life was not an  easy one. Thcy know:war prices for farm produce will not last long when, the peoples of  Europe get back onto the land, and they recall  that it was not so long ago when men were going  irom farming not to it, because of general conditions as a rcsut of over-production.

He states that suitable pictures should be  put on stuffers that could be sent out.with letters,  and suggests that statistics be Ircaled in lhc same  wav. He savs he would be glad to circulate  these through his mail, and adds that "I am convinced thai in. this way we could accomplish a  great deal of military and naval emigration  threatened at the present time.". He concludes by  asking for all the literature he can get regarding  Victoria and Vancouver Island in particular, hut  we have no doubt that literature in. the form of  envelope; stuffers would be as acceptable from  any other district in thc Province���������������������������ahd particularly from thc Okanagan.  These envelope* stuffers could be put out at very  little cost and given to anyone who would-*make  good use of them in connection with their correspondence to friends in othcr parts of Canada or  thc United States, or the Old Country.  GOOD ROADS MOST ESSENTIA*.  Arthur Sullivan, in an excellent article in the  Victoria Colonist on thc problems of reconstruction, says as  to  tbe importance of good roads:  "More highways and better highways must go  band in band wilh thc settlement of our returned  .men on the land. Any amouni of money that  our Governmcnl spends on Ibis essential adjunct  lo land settlement will be wisely invested, and is  tbe one factor in tbe successful carrying out of  this scheme. Many unfortunate people have been  lured by the glowing accounts of the agricultural  possibilities in various parts of the Province, and  people that this Province is entirely without a  through road from its western section to the  eastern part. The old Cariboo Road, running  from Yale to JLytton, has been practically obliterated by the C: P. ft. and C. N. JR. railroads, which  run on bolh sides of thc famous, Fraser Canyon.  Thc obliteration of lhis great highway was not  seriously felt at the time that these roads were  built, bul since thc advent of the automobile, the  loss through this unfortunate circumstance has  been very great to tbe Province. If this highway  bad nol been cut wc would havc had many thousands of tourists passing through from California,  Oregon and Washington, who would have left  considerable cash among the people along the  Tbe .rebuilding.of this road .would prove  V^-j^f-1  PROFESSIONAL  ^ ,C.

PHONE 47  BAKAMM  Must Cut off Unpaid  Subscriptions  The Paper Controller of Canada  has given notice that a strict regulation is about to be issued by the  Dominion Government to the effect  that���������������������������  Publishers of newspapers' must  cease sending 'their newspapers to subscribers three  months in arrears unless subscriptions are definitely renewed and all arrears fully  paid.  The reason for this regulation of  lhe Paper Controller is that it is the  practice of some publishers to send  thier newspaper until ordered  stopped, and this practice frequently means a failure to -collect  ��������������������������� anything for subscriptions in arrears, in which case there is a virtual w:iste of-paper. It is to pre- -  vent paper, waste, that'the new reg- ���������������������������  '   'illation has beenedecided on.  The  manufacture  of paper  con-      ,  a sumes labor, wood, coal, chemicals  and   transportation   facilities,   and  every  ton   of  paper   saved   means  just so much more labor, raw ma- -  teriais, "chemicals,  fuel and trans-    ������������������  portatirin^available for urgent war  needs.   l*r these reasons the Government insists that paper shall he  saved, an<J:'proposes that only those  who   pay   for   their. publications  shall"receive them.  This order will leave the news-  .    paper, publishers no choice in the  matter.    Wj must therefore insht  " upon all subscriptions to the Com-  monks being paid up."  We are cleaning up our subscription list, this week ant} will be  forced to send final notice to a 4  subscriptions in arrears.  All subscribers, must pay up.  Those in arrears will have the  Commoner discontinued. We have  no option in the matter.

Pay up now  and make a discontinuance of your  paper unnecessary. "We do not  wish to cut off a single subscription. (We want all our friends to  remain with us.

"Tlie project is not untried; it is  not an experiment. We arc pleased lo. see the  same idea expressed by a correspondent in lhc  Kamloops Standard.   He says:  "The great question ot* reconstruction is iioav  occupying the minds of all those countries, direct-!!  ly or indirectly affected by the war In the past J  avc have been content to follow the lead, and'}  often to grope in the dark after shadoAvs Avhen'  llie substance A\as at hand.

To guard against thc  freezing of the Avalcr pipes, many consumers ap-  parentlv leave water taps running throughout the  night. The result has been a depiction of the  water reserve, and even more serious consequences are threatened if thc practice is not discontinued. We arc confident our watcr consumers Avill readily see the importance of giving  heed lo thc warning issued hy the City when they  know the magnitude of tlie waste going on.  Last Thursday night the nigh I operator at thc  powcr house kept track of the amount of water  flowing through Armstrong water mains between  thc hours of 12 and 2 o'clock. "The amount by  actual measurement at thc poAverhouse was 30,-  000 gallons, or 15,000 gallons per hour. Tliis is  practically all wasted as at that hour people are  in bed.   Thc fact that thc water committee would  impress upon consumers is that, while thcrc is  ample water coming down for all ordinary purposes, the volume of the flow cannot be depended  upon if this enormous Avaate continues, and serious consequences Avill result if consumers fail  to co-operate Avith thc .city in conserving thc  watcr flow, s  matter of .inilia'ive we take a front seat. There  is one question Avhich, particularly since lhe  great increase in auto traffic has a direct bearing  on the Avelfare of'the district. That is good roads.  I Avould suggest the following scheme for consideration of your readers, which, if adopted,  will be an everlasting credit to lhe district. I refer to the system of road patrol.  "Take any of our main highways and divide  them into sections of say" from 10 to415 miles  each. ' The government on each section -.yould  erect a substantial cottage with stabling accommodations/ eto., each cottage having an acre  of land surrounding it. Place a man in charge  of a section. These section men or patrol men  must have knowledge of road repair work in  general, and let the salary for a patrol man be  such that he need look for no other employment  throughout the year.

RED TICKETS  ���������������������������*A11 sale goods arc. plainly marked on the ,,  RED TICKET ������������������  F R E E  DELI V E R Y  OUR FAULTY ROAD POLICY  We do not know where a more glaring example  of the faulty road policy avc in British Columbia  arc laboring under than the trunk road to Vernon  from,  say,  Larkin  south.    This  road is,  under  normal conditions, lhc most used of any trunk  road in the Interior.    This winter it is all but  impassable, and bas bcen for several weeks.   For  any road "to get inlo such a condition Avould require many days, if not Avccks, of traffic.    Thc  Government road engineer and assistant road engineers, must have motored over this road many  times  when iL Avas in   tlie making,  and  yet no  ,elfort Avas made to split-log drag it lo fill the ruts  and levcl.it up.   Wc arc informed lhat the cosl of  dragging this piece of road Avould haA'c bcen very  lillle; perhaps two or three daj-t Avilh.a'team.of  horses and an old-fashioned split-log drag would  Jiave overcome the ruts in lhc making.    But not  a thing A\-as done, Avith thc result that the road  has been a disgrace all Avintcr and Avill be something indescribable Avhen spring opens.  Under the road patrol system, mentioned in the  Commoner recently, no road would be permitted  to gel into such, a condition as the trunk road bc-  twecn Larkin and Vernon. A little work every  day or tAvo would have kepi the road free from  ruts ncAAr cut axel-deep. -  TELEPHONE EXTENSIONS  Manager Dobie and the OVanagan Telephone  Company arc lo be congratulated on lhe completion of the extensions run from thc TCn derby ex-  change this Avinler.

These extensions  mean an addition of l\vcnlv-six phonos to Ibc  Enderby exchange and fourteen iicav ones to the  Armstrong list, wilh at least as many more in  prospect early in  thc spring.  To build tbe.se lines at thc present limcV'Avhcn  \be cost of material and labor is so far ih excess  of normal, indicates Iioav thoroughly and avcII  thc company carries oul an agreement entered  into. Wc are informed by Manager Dobie that  thc cost of construction and installation has bcen  something over $23,000, or 809?. morc lhan under  norma 1 conditions. HoAvcvcr. lhc service was required, and thc Company did not wait for thc Ioav-  cost-of-conslruclion period to return.

"How many times have we seen the roads impassable after a rain storm. The government road  men have previously made the road surface  smooth, but their Avork is obliterated in an hour.  It is wasteful to think of having graders run over  a road after every shower, and it is not practicable. ������������������By the patrol system the road can be  dragged and re-surfaced at thc proper time arid  there Avill bc an all-year-round service.4'The patrol men Avill never bc out of work. Thc road  can bc widened, ditches cleaned out, culverts repaired, gravelling done where necessary.  "This is a general outline of a system of road  patrol which I trust Avill bc tried out in thc near  future. The Federal government, I understand,  a fcAV years ago, considered tbe question'of granting aid to.the provinces for thc maintenance of  main trunk roads. Why not revive tbis vital  question right iioav? This is no step in the dark;  but a sane business policy.

Year by year attention has been drawn by the financial authorities to the duty incumbent on you-of bringing the sinking fund up to  par, but hitherto, owing to Avar conditions   thc   matter  has   not- been  pressed.   The time has now come, however, when- it is necessary for  lhe maintenance of vour credit a.s a corporation, that special taxes be  levied  for the rehabilitation of this  fund,  and  that the collection  of  all  taxes now in  arrears be unhesitatingly enforced.    The amount rer  quired to bring the sinking fund up to date, as stated by the' Auditors,  is  814,007.80.    Against  this  wc have   arrears   of  taxes   amounting  to  88,028.97 and .$4,000.00 proceeds from  the expected sale, of roadmak-  .ing machinery, or a total of $12,028.97; leaving abalan.ee of approximately 82,000.00 to be made up by a small measure of special taxation  spread over   a   series   of years.    The precise   amount   required   to   be  levied each vear to cover this sum, with the annually-compounded interest   necessitated  under  the provisions of our Loan By-laws, will be  determined   by   actuarial   computation the making of which has been  referred to the Auditors.  --- T3) General Revenue. While the taxation of real property in Enderbv is not, as compared with an average small lown, by any means  high." still it i.s desirable that the tax rate be kept as low as can con-  sislentlv be done, having clue regard to our eflicicncy and solvency  as a corporation. P therefore recommend that attention be given to  all possible subsidiary sources of-revenue. In some other towns, for  instance, substantial license fees are demanded from banks, express  companies, etc.. and it may be that investigation would reveal other  incidental sources of.revenue which could be tapped.  14)  Hurveiiof Watershed.   The item of 8150.00 for survey of Avat-  ershed appearing   among   the   disbursements may perhaps not be understood'bv some who have not kept in touch with civic aflairs,_and  mav therefore need a word of explanation.      When    the    waterworks  svstem was installed, in the vear 1906, the Provincial Board of. Health  advised that a grant from the Dominion Government   of   a   suflic;_hl  area of watershed lands be applied for to safeguard the source Of the  public water supply from encroachment and possible contamination.  This was done, but the application lay in abeyance at Ottawa for some  vears.    Finally, however, word was received that the application would  be favourably-considered provided a  survey  were  made   and. a  plan  forwarded showing the water system which it was desired to protect  and   the lands the grant of-which was sought for this purpose,   lhe  Council, in pursuance of their policy  of avoiding,  during.the years  of the war, all expenditures which were   not   immediately   necessary,  postponed the making of the required    survey   until   recently,   when,  oAving to thc fact that final title to the civic water supply from the  Provincial Water Board could not.be. obtained   until   all   outstanding  questions with the Dominion Government   had   been    settled,   it   was  deemed necessary to have this done without  further delay.    The matter is now again being taken up with Ottawa, and  it is expected that  a grant will at an early date be made of a sufficient area of watershed  lands amply to afford the needed protection.  (5) School Expenditure. From examination of the statement''of |  Receipts and Expenditures it Avill seen that out of lhe sum expended on  maintenance and interest, viz., $21,469.70. no less than $10,016.������������������0 ���������������������������  or nearlv one-half���������������������������was devoted to school account. This may appear,  at first sight, to be a large proportion of the total revenue.

It is stated bv scientific authority, however, that  'persons suffering even from an apparently slight cold, and quite unconscious of anything Avorse than that ailing them,'may, by mingling  among a crowd.'be the means of spreading infection of the mosl virulent tvpe. I desire, therefore, to emphasize in the strongest nxan-  ner possible, the grave warning contained in the report against holding unnecessary public gatherings or unnecessarily coming in contact  with persons having colds or grip. The thanks of the community are  due to Dr. Keith for the vigilant care Avith Avhich, so far, he has steered  us through the dangers of this epidemic, and for his efficient work and  supervision of everything relating lo thc public health during the past  year. . . ��������������������������� ���������������������������  Acknowledgment.is due of the faithful ami efficient services rendered bv Constable Bailey, both in regard to the policing of the town  and in connection with the care of the water system, am! UIC many  ulhe'r matters which are under his superintendence.  Attention should be directed as early as possible in the coining  vear to the question of improving thc streets and roads of the Cit>-���������������������������  especially-those used bv residents of the surrounding district in travelling in and out of town, and the trunk road of the Valley,' now so  much used for inter-urban motor traffic. I would suggest the addition  to the tax rate of a mill or two, and'the judicious expenditure of the  proceeds for this purpose, so as to make it easier and pleasanter lor  those wishing to drive into our tovyn for business or pleasure to do so.  \ few years ago the Canadian Pacific Railway Company had in  view a scheme for beautifying the grounds adjacent to. the station  bv laying them out as a flower garden, and an official of the department "of the-company having such work in charge visited the tOAvn  for the purpose of making an inspection. During the continuance  of the Avar such plans naturally fell into abeyance but it would be  well, now that the ������������������ar is over, for the Council or thc Board of Trade  to approach the company and endeavour to have this work, which  would so greatly enhance the attractiveness of the town,' proceeded  with.'

In view'of the .vatural advantages which your town enjoys, of the  prospects of development now gradually coming into sight; and of  the immense possibilities which lie before us along the line of reconstruction, social progress and enhanced prosperity and happiness, 1  suggest that now is the time when the keenest brains and biggest  hearts among vou should come to the front. Let there be no more  shirking of public office. And let us, as citizens, one and all realize  that it is not a hardship to havc to pay taxes. They represent a form  of co-operation without which civilization would be impossible, and  there is no form of expenditure for which Ave receive greater returns.

More Profit to the  Buttarmaker ���������������������������  The Wisdom of a Child  A teacher was questioning a Sunday school  class and chanced to ask one tiny girl, "Do you  know what an epistle is?"

It is the duty of every butter maker to comply with the law in this matter. Some putter  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butter that it does not appear to them that they  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  Thcy do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000  butter wraps on band. To accommodate this  class of buttermakers, we have printed up  a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. They are  printed -with the words "Fresh Pairy Butter" but  do not bear the name of the maker. However,  these wrappers fill the-requirements of the law  governing this point, and can be bought in small  quantities at the rate of 65c a hundred in TOO or  50-Tots. If you do not require butterwraps in  larger lots, take these wraps in lesser quantities.  500, Single Order.    -    -    $3.75  1000 "      "   -      -        4.75  When   run ������������������ with    other orders, $3.50 and $4.50  THE WALKER PRESS  Enderby, B.C.

Poultry Association was held in Vancouver onoJanuary 8th to  11th in connection with the Provincial Poultry  Show. There was a large attendance of directors  and members-from all parts of the Province, the  up-country points being well represented. Delegates were present from Fernie, Nelson, Nakusp,  Grand Forks, Penticton, Summerland, Vernon,  Armstrong and Kamloops. The convention was  a great success, and the interest shown most encouraging.  The minister of agriculture was present and addressed the convention. He had a most enthusiastic audience, as also.did Prof. Lunn who gave  a lantern lecture on poultry raising.  It was proved beyound doubt tliat the Poultry  Association is doing a great work for the poultry-  men of the Province, as was evident by the enthusiastic interest taken by all present at the  convention.  The Department of Agriculture from now on  will take a very active part in the work of the  Association. Mr. Barrow told the convention that  the Department had at last awakened to the fact  that lhe B. C. Poultry Association was doing a  very important work.  The show itself was a success, both from a  fancier's and a utility man's viewpoint. There  was a large entry of birds, some 2,500 being  shown. The two largest classes were White  Wyandottes and Barred Rocks, of which* there  were upwards of 120 friccach class besides thc  utility fowl. N.  Thc OkanaganVallcy was well represented in  thc winnings, . Penticton and Armstrong being  particularly well up in  their respective classes.  Thc pigeon, rabbit and bantam classes were  an education to anyone and covered a whole  floor in the large show building. The interest  in the boys' and girls' classes was also great, the  popular varieties in these being Barred Rocks,  and White Wyandottes.  It would be an education to the people of Armstrong and district to see the enthusiasm shown  in thc poultry, industry by the thousands of  breeders at .the coast and .western B. C. points.  It is marvelous the. faith lhcy have in the business. The show building was packed by visitors  from 10 a.m. to 10 p. m. every day,-Saturday  having the record,attendance'.  Mr. H. E. Waby of Enderby, had the honor of  being elected president of thc Provincial Poultry  Association, which shows thc good7standing of  Mr. Waby with the poultrymen of B.

Once more we are to bc called  upon to reach a quota set for  us. This time it is for the Red  Cross. Thc big drive covering  Canada, is to be carried on next  week, from the 12th to thc 19th.  In and about Enderby ���������������������������and  Armstrong the work of soliciting for funds will be carried on  by the same people as did the  canvassing for the Victofv Loan  1918. They will cover the field  as best they :can. But thcy will  require assistance. If your heart  is in thc work of the Red Cross,  do not wait 16 bc asked. Step  up with what you feel you can  give.
