Vol. 13, No. 50, Whole No. 674  THURSDAY, MARCH 3,-1921  Subscription, $23 a year  Enderby Parents and Children  Delighted by the "Pied Piper"  Enderby.parents and children wereldren   of  Hamelin   who   were   enticed  delighted to have the opportunity of  seeing and hearing tho school children of Mara in that fascinating  opera "The Pied Piper of Hamelin" in  the Opera House last Thursday evening. It was a record. crowd that  filled the building. Long before the  hour of S every seat- was taken and  there was standing room only for  fully 100. The door receipts totalled  $150. With ticekts at 50c and 25c this  ^ meant at least 375 to 400 paid admissions. Which indicates better than  anything else the eagerness of the  people bf Enderby to show their appreciation of the worthy efforts of  their Mara neighbors in attempting  i. so finished a performance as the  "Pied Piper."  And what shall we say of the play  itself? And of the children's acting?  'And the stage setting? The flute  magic of "The .Pied Piper"? - The  chorus singing, the solos' and duets  by the children? The dance of the  rats? The weird gestures and mystic  lines so well given byt Major Feilden?  What.could anyone say more than  was said by the large audience���������������������������In  heart���������������������������in spirit���������������������������in down-right joy  and    appreciation     unrestrained    and  without reservation?

It was understood  at the outset, of course, that the expenses would have to come out of the  receipts, and-It-was further requested  that a fifth of the net proceeds go  to the Mara school fund, for which  the.opera was originally planned. It  should be understood that the amount  icharged for transporting the children  and "scenery is only a   nominal sum.

In a report of the committee of the  whole, a price of $3,500 was set upon  the roadmaking "machinery owned by  the city, in response to an enquiry received from Armstrong.  Mayor Barnes reported on the Good  Roads convention held at Penticton  some days ago, and attended by him  and Aid. Mackay. When the convention met, he said," they soon discovered that the meeting was more particularly of and for delegates from  the south end of the Valley,'' and was  intended to deal -with road problems  of that district only; therefore the  Enderby delegates returned home the  next day without taking part in the  deliberations  of the* convention.  A letter from the Enedrby Hospital  Board dealing with the case of Mr.  Bilsland was read, and the Council'  decided to take steps looking to Mr.  Bilsland's _ comfort and a solution of  the problem. It was understood that  Mr. Bilsland was to leave shortly for  the east, to reside with \he family of  a heice, ,and the city undertook to  see him safely there. It was pointed  out by Mayor Barnes that Mr. Bilsland was oiie of the first pioneers of  the Okanagan. Sixty years .ago he  went into the "Cariboo with-the gold  rush then on,' later coming to./Enderby and locating upon .the .Hazel-  mere " ranch, now 'owned.-by Mr.  Skyrme." * It was the duty. of the city  to see that-he" was'well-cared for, and  this duty/the city would, not,.shirk:-.

TEMPEST IN A TEA POT  Coel Brothers, .who had the handling  of the scenery, the curtain, etc. Particularly valuable was their work and  assistance in connection .with the installation of the 'scenery on the local  stage, for, fearing the impossibility  of getting carpenters help to- hang  the scenes in Enderby, they volunteered their own teams and drove to  =t"6 w"n~i fi^r d"?F^to^  assistance as stage carpenters.  Major Feilden handled the part .of  "The Pied Piper with the skill of an  artist. His mystic flute playing and  his general bearing and artistic temperament made him a Piper that  would have been unsurpassable on  any metropolitan stage, and it was  to his fine interpretation of Browning's poem that gave the opera such  a splendid setting and implanted in  tho children so true a conception ot  their parts. Nevertheless, many ��������������������������� of  the children gave evidence of a personal conception quite Independent of  that of the master, and it was this  that made the story so teal In the  telling. Particularly true was the  work of Bertha Gray as Elsa, and  James Bell as Ha4ns, and Mary Bruice  as the Schoolmaster. Dorothy��������������������������� Davy,  as the Mayor's Daughter, and Stanley  Patterson, the Mayor of Hamelin,  each carried the part most acceptably  and spoke the lines word perfect. ;  The Ballet des Rats, a miniature  production of ,a popular Russian  dance months ago in all the large  cities of Europe and the States,  captivated the audience. This was  given by such little children as Muriel  Macready, John Butterworth, David  Rimmer, Katie Gray, Jennie Bell, Eric  Rosoman,   Isabel   Robertson,   Madge  Robertson, Tules Callen William Cad-     A black bear cub at Mrth we,ghs  den; and representing the school chil- oniy from 9 to 12 ounces  Enderby is just now experiencing  Its annual tempest .in a tea pot. it  has come with exasperating . regular-  it>^for^a-number^of-=yearsV=And-=each=  recurrence means a change in the  teaching staff���������������������������usually in the high  school. Teachers who have been  blown elsewhere by these annual tempests invariably have made good, and  the schools under them have gone  ahead ��������������������������� and prospered. We have had  in Enderby some of the best high  school teachers in the Province,  judged by results. Those scholars who  applied themselves to their lessons  and made an effort to get ahead, had  no word of complaint at any time, and  succeeded as well under one teacher  as under another. On the other hand,  scholars who were inclined to be  unruly, and disposed more to make  sport for the room, failed to advance  as much under one teacher as another  and always found cause to complain.  Unfortunately, instead of the teacher  being empowered to- tan the tar out  of the unruly, as. was done of old, the  complaints have been listened to, and  the whims of parents made much of,  with the result that Enderby has had  its annual tea-pot tempest and its annual or semi-annual changes in the  personnel of its high school teacher.

' ���������������������������- '  Miss Chadwick spent the week-end  here, returning to Enderby by Monday's train.  The kiddies speak well of the treatment they received on the occasion of  their=performance--^at=-Enderbyp"and-  they will long remember the trip as  everyone, including the weather man,  contributed to their enjoyment.  Frank Ritchies had the misfortune  to burn his hand badly last week. He  was in charge of the store in the absence of Geo. Butterworth, and was  fixing up one of the lamps, when the  dripping gas caught fire, with almost  serious results.  Geo. Butterworth and Wm. Owen,  United Farmer delegates to the convention at Vantouver, returned home  .on Friday and Monday. They spent a  very busy time in the coast metropolis and bring back good' reports of  the convention proceedings.  The masquerade dance last Friday  'was a very successful and enjoyable  affair. Many outside J visitors were in  attendance and the costumes were exceptionally striking and original. Mr.  and Mrs. Edgar of Grindrod, took the  first prize in both the lady's.and gentleman's costume, as George and ���������������������������.Mar.*  tha Washington. Mrs. Davy won the  prize for the most original costume,  and Mr. Macready for the best comic.

The Union of B. C. Municipalities  and   Good   Roads   League   urged   the  Hullcar is Indeed fortunate in having such an outstanding personality  in its midst. Her views on the subject and her ideals of what must constitute a true citizen, were clearly expressed in most able fashion.  The Rev. Mr.-Stott also spoke of his  experience in matters of citizenship  in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and lately in B.C..  Mrs. Kenney sang "O Canada" by  request. Miss Diggins played a piano  solo which was loudly encored. This  new comer to the district will be a  decided acquisition to the talent. Mrs.  Barney also sang, gaining a well-  earned encore.

The Value of an Ideal  THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 1921  Educational Value of Child Acting  It was more than a pleasure to see and to hear  Ihc school children of Mara in "The Pied Piper  ol' Hamelin" last Thursday evening. It was a  revelation. The educational value of such training to the chldren taking pari is beyond measure,  while its value to the conimunily is inestimable.  To witness the acting of those children, and to  hear them sing, word perfect, the difficult lines  of this most enticing children's opera, and then  to realize that five weeks before it was first given  thcy did not know a line of it, and never had  laken part in anything of the kind, made one  marvel at the work of the teachers and also at  lhe adaptability of the children  themselves.  It was a signal accomplishment for Major Feilden, who directed -the children in their acting,  and to Miss Stewart, wiio taught thc children  ���������������������������lhcir lines, and to Mr. Rimmer and Mrs! Butterworth who directed tlie singing and drilled the  children in the well-given choruses. To Miss  Allen, too, much was due, for it was she who  drilled the little ones in the ballet des rats, a miniature production.of that Russian dance that set  London and Paris and Ncav York wild some few  months ago.  We Canadians are a practical people and suffer  little froin' va'gue idealism. Wc love lo "get  down to brass tacks," and havc little use for the  man who can do nothing but theorize. But there  are. times when.it is no mean thing to consider  the value bf an ideal, and onc of those times is  fast approaching, if if is not already here. ������������������  Just 500 years ago May 30th, our forefathers  in England were guilty of a breach of honor and  of chivalry against the French in thc burning of  Joan of Arc, the heroine peasant girl who must  stand for all time as the personification of high  idealism and patriotism. To this day wc are  ashamed of the thing, and make no attempt to  gloss it over. v  , Now as we approach the 500th anniversary of  that hateful deed, our suggestion is this: Here  in Canada the children of France and cf England  are linked together in one great nalion. Would  it not be fitting for British Columbia, the wester-  most province of thc mainland, to present to  Quebec in thc east a suitable work of art commemorating Joan of Arc?  A monument, perhaps, designed and wrought  by British Columbians'���������������������������simple and straightforward, but nevertheless full of an ideal. A monument without any more practical value than a  handshake across the miles, and yet a something  which wc venture lo think would be prized by  Canadians both cast and west.  Phrase Worshipers  Building Opportunities  is  good  to sec how  quickly thc Okanagan  It  Saw Mills, Ltd., and dealers'in builders'' hardware, come forward to help in the campaign to  get, more homes for Endcrhy. Thcy see, as all  -must, that if we have not houses for people to  live in wc cannot hold them in, Enderby. Thcy  realize, as all must, tliat if"Enderby is to grow  and the district develop wc musl increase in population, and lo do so wc must hold what wc h'aVc  and .strive for more. Thcy realize, as all must,  that no lown grows up "Topsy" like, bul that, if  it is to grow at all, it must be the result of personal a.s well as combined effort.  Realizing this these dealers in .building materia! are making substantial reductions in al! lines  that' will mean a big saving lo anyone having  thc money wilh which toobuild. With these reductions, "it should be-a Big inducement to men  to slarl building early, particularly when there  is such a demand for houses.  Mabel Lake Telephone J^ine  Arc the businessmen.of Enderby going to sft  down and wait for the development of Mabel  Lake Valley somc years hence, or are thcy prepared to press for thc building of a telephone  line to Mabel Lake and the belter handling of the  -.roa.QjVgi'kV.n^Al^ cannoJ[  hope lo retain Ihc business of a jocality if wc do  no help to build lhat locality up and lo sec that  il is provided with the conveniences that .will.enable il lo do business with us..

To hold lhe-trade and  lhe good will of a locality wc hiuslj work\vilh it  and for it.   Arc wc doing our pari?  Phrase Building  Absurd Jtoad Policy  "Speed up!" yells a much-quoted phrase builder. "There's no hard limes coming; it's just the  soft limes going." After all these years of world  war, followed-by a reconstruction' period lhat has  taxed-lo the limit the strongest, and made thousands of the weaker go under, this high-sounding  phrase of empty words will have lillle meaning.  If the past six or eight years have been- the soft  limes,pray what is going to bring about limes  thai are not "soft?" The fact i.s, conditions have  never'been worse in the world's history than arc  right now. And' this docs not apply lo any country'in- particular; it applies to the world as a  whole,'and to every community. These conditions are not the result of folly, but are the ouU  come of the period of devastation which the war  brought. Having won the war we are tasting  lhe fruits of victory. Having lost the war, our  former enemies are .tasting the fruits of defeat.  There does not appear to be.any great difference  between them, except that our fruit is labeled  "victory" and their's "defeat."  'Speaking cf the Provincal Government's road  pojicy, thc Kelowna Courier, ordinarily a government-supporter, says: "Without regard, to politics, wc arc genuinely glad that the member for  South Okanagan, in his speech delivered in thc  Assembly ./last', week, made an attack upon the  Government's methods of carrying out road  I work. 4 The present administration has made no  improvement in the methods of the Bowser regime, and the same old foolih plan is> followed  of doing a whole lot of work at,one time���������������������������genet-  ally at-the wrong season of the year���������������������������and then  letting lhe roads fend for themselves without  patching or rcparing until thcy get inlo a hopelessly bad condition. Wi th the same appropriations, meagre though thcy may be, if a syslcm of  i; oat I", pa t ro1"'\va s'T'i i'i a i n t a i he'd I h rou gh o u t th c year,  wilh 'quick .repair of rut's and mud-holes, our  country roads would be in much better condition  than under the methods of lavishing money on  them for a month or two and forgetting all about  t'hem for the balance of the year.  "The plan .of/attempting" to administer road  maintenance from a central authority at Victoria  is cumbersome and .inefficient. The work should  be entrusted to local road boards! in districts not  suitable, from sparse population or other rca-  ons, for organization into municipalities. The  government should hand over to such boards,  duly elected by the property owners within the  respective districts, all real sstatc faxes collected  within such districts, and should also empower  them to make a levy up to a certain maximum  miill rate, when authorixed to do so by a vote of  the taxpayers in the same manner as is now done  in rural school districts. Free of dictation from  Vcloria, thc evils of patronage and the whims  and fancies of government road superintendents  and foremen, each district would be responsible  for working oul its own salvation in road mat-,  lers and it is beyond doubt that tlie available  funds would be administered much more economically and efficiently than at present."  brings no cjvtarrel $  Swap a bay tor* a  horse  of Sorrel j  Swap a cat for a  ^food mouse -trap,  k <Ao������������������i Swap HOME-  TlES ofT the map!  -Let tnis Sentiment prevail  i When NEKTyoure UR6ED to SHOP BY MAIL  Wc Anglo-Saxons are great lovers of phrases.

If it were not  so our phrase builders might easily bc our ruination.  When the great war was on, lhal phrase about  making the world safe for Democracy was capitalized for all, if not more lhan, it was worth.  Also that othcr phrase about the brotherhood of  man, and-the humanizing effect of thc war upon  capital and labor, how each had come to realize  as never before the essentiality of the-other in  thc harmonious development of the whole. We  all remember lhc beautiful sentiment of the song  then sung even if the words have escaped us or  have become confused in the morc sane and  straightened joys of peace. But few of us then  realized that in the few years intervening between war and peace wc would now be experiencing in all. countries such a melee of contro-  crsy, between capital and" labor, employee ancl  employer.

And, if anything, the disputes���������������������������the fight  for mastery���������������������������seems to bc more fearful in the  countries that came oul of thc war victorious  than in the countries that were defeated.

"Aphids or plant lice are the small  insects which gather on ��������������������������� the leaves  nf apple trees, and different kinds of  plants. Most of the common species-  are green" but some are reddish, brown  ���������������������������'or black; while' some are covere'd  ~with a powdery or wooly material.  They are very small but on account  of their tremendous, power of multiplication they are capable of inflicting  severe losses to all greenhouse, orchard,  garden   and   field  crops.  "The  presence of aphids  on plants  ,.or trees freciuently causes a curled  and 'distorted condition of the leaves.  The'leaves always, turn yellowish and  Avilt and frequently die. The insects  have piercing,, sucking mouth parts  and by this means they extract the  life juices from the plants.  "All the insects which hatch from  the winter, eggs develop into wingless  females'. This generation is followed by brood after brood of winged  and wingless aphids.- Sometimes as  many as thirteen generations have  arisen.during a summer season, each  female often producing . over fifty'  young. In the fall true males and  females appear and after pairing the  winter "eggs are laid. The rosy apple aphis, by^means of.-winged forms,  migrate froni the apple tree in the  early summer "and go to 'plantains on  which the species feeds and breeds,"  but Jn fall they desert the plantains  for the apple tree again.

"As,soon as-'aphUls aro in evidence  on truck crops they should be sprayed with tho mixture advised for their  kind.

Similar plans are being made in  other parts of Western Canada, and  the already rapidly growing dairy  industry promises to grow much  faster with the general acceptance of  the sunflower as a silage crop. Another evidence of the value of sun  flowers as a forage crop,will be the  big gain In finished steers. Many  of the larger livestock raisers are  growing sunflowers and erecting  silos for this purpose. Thus will be  considerably increased the finishing  areas of Canada, which, .^hitherto,  have been somewhat restricted, compared with the large feeding areas,  throughout the country, and the livestock industry in the West will be  placed on a sound basis.  ^C.

(By U No Hoo.)  ;,- In most athletic leagues, certainly  in the more important ones, the playoff system has been adopted. In the  Vancouver City senior amateur league there are four teams: Towers,  Monarchs, Elks and Varsity. Finishing in that order, the last two playoff to settle which shall play theMon-  archs for tho right to meet the Towers in the finals for the championship.  The claim that the team which has  won the most games., is the best is  not necessarily true.  In the Northern Okanagan Hockey  League, poor ice and a lack of practice militated against1* the Enderby  team, which the Vernon News characterized* as tho fastest team in the  league. ''  The boys are good stickhandlers  and our goalie as good as any in the  league. '-'  ,  Four straight games Enderby lost,  Lhree by the odd goal. Decisive victories over each of the other teams  proves that Enderby has at least as  good a team as tho other towns. The  schedule is short, and the team lacking condition at the start of the season is up against it- for the whole  schedule.  Would it not, in view of these  facts, be a wise idea in future seasons  to arrange a playoff at the end of  the season, either between the teams  finishing first and second, or the second and third teams playing a sudden death game to decide which shall  meet the leaders for the championship?   '  There "is a further inducement in  die playoff system in that a team that  has lost its fiist few games is -not  necessarily deprived of thc championship. ��������������������������� '  Of course this idea could bc applied  to. any game as well as hockey.

They  had fought a game fight. .In the  story-book he electrifies the crowd  with his lightning rushes, 'quick  headwork and clever stickhandling.  He pulls the game out of the  fire.

As  a result his team was buried under  an avalanche of goals.  * *  *  An elderly gentleman was staggering along with a heavy valise. Our  friend in the story-book stepped forward and carried the valise and in  other.ways helped the old man.  o In actual reality he laughed at the  old man's difficulties, even drew his  friend's attention to. the,fun.
