Qt   !||  v\ /  IN WHICH IS MERGED THE ENDERBY ^RESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY.  Vol. 14. No. G, Whole No. C81.  THURSDAY,  APRIL 28,  1921.  Subscription, $U3  Celebration Committee at  Work/on Empire Day Program  Last Thursday evening the various  committees appointed on the 24th of  May celebration met ln the city hall  and presented estimates of. requirements for sports, etc., for that day.  Tho advertising committee asked for  $90; sports committee, $275; music  committee, $150; and decorations  committee $S5, a total of $600. This  is $200 greater than was spent last  year, but, as was pointed out by the  committeemen, costs are higher today than then, and good sports come  high.  A definite program has not yet been  prepared, but it was stated at "the  meeting that it has been decided to  have the league ��������������������������� baseball team from^  Vernon, a lacrosse team from Lumby  to   meet   Armstrong  the     baseball  ��������������������������� team from Salmon Arm, "and football  team from Vernon. The . Enderby  Olympic"' team will also play a junior,  team from Vernon, and^the sports  committee suggested horse races to  conclude the day's sports, but this  feature was not accepted for the present. .     ' ,   '-  "The committee appointed to interview -the.;--ladies of the various  churches'with regard to the-serving  of hot meals on the grounds, reported  it was. probable none of the churches  would take it on, but some ladies  were prepared to undertake the .work  if a< sufficient number.could bej induced to:>join with them. ,���������������������������-.���������������������������*.        ---  Tho'' refreshment booths were, held  by the boys of the Athletic Association,  and .in  addition'they  asked  25  per cent.of the amount-taken in-by  .the church ladies'from the hot .meal  ��������������������������� tables.    ���������������������������   ���������������������������    i  , t ,<, rV _.<,._?.._.. -  ���������������������������_    ���������������������������*;%,  .-. --"Serving,'- qf,'^hbtv-'"'meals    on - the"  ,��������������������������� Erouiids/is rthe?."s������������������icttr?';/JtyillSrel_������������������  1    with  the ladies.   " MealsV cannot    be  served   without, them,   and.- for /some  >' reason ^they. have not "shown, any enthusiasm' to  serve  on  the  basis  laid  down by the athletic boys.  'There seems to be a deadlock. To  break it we "would -_ like" to   suggest  that perhaps tho boys styling themselves the Athletic Association havc  taken tho wrong course. Enderby  people always are ready and willing  to assist every movement in the public interest. But they must know definitely the objective. This the athletic association has not stated. The  feeling is general that Enderby should  plan to build a- covered rink for winter sports. This would be a worthy  objective. But on "two occasions when  the matter was brought up at meetings ofthe athletic association it was  made clear Ijy those in. charge that  the association'had no such objective,  and was plahning������������������only to secure funds  for carrying on sports���������������������������baseball in  summer and hockey in winter. This,  we Would point out, is not sufficiently  definite to ensure public support. We  also would suggest that if the athletic  association is to take upon itself the  handling of the celebration that it  complete organization; enroll its  membership; adopt a constitution so  the public may understand its aims  and objects. Until this is done the  athletic association is a myth and  can get us nowhere but into confusion. Properly organized "and incorporated under the Association Act the  athletic association could be made a  most valuable organization in the  conynunity interest, but if It is not  so JJ organized it -cannot win public  confidence nor ask public support. Let  us get off on the right foot.,'  At the present time we are preparing for'the celebration. It should be  made a success. _ It can be. It is supposed fjjto -fbe handled byHhe" Athletic  Association,��������������������������� "which Is"not' yet -fully ,qiy  journey people generally ' want .to  kno^^^i-jtl^j^ehjclejs going be-  ���������������������������ttre'^Jey'get^ln'tb^rifte-^they want to  have an [objective,, to work for and  look forward to. Without this understanding there Is liable to be confusion and embarrassment.  'HULLCAR literary society.  Notwithstanding ��������������������������� farmers being so  busy" there was a good attendance at  tihe meeting of the-Literary Society,  April 19th. A paper dealing particularly with the flower-garden was read  by Miss Pringle.' It was suggestive all  through of helpful thoughts and ideas  which.make for the cultivation of  happiness and growth in the tillers  of the soil, and also contained practical hints for the gardener. A fair  discussion followed. Other items of  the program were solos by Mrs. Colin  ^Harris,=Miss3L.ang,-aduet=by_=Mr.--=and-  Mrs. Barney. Mr. Winter with his  banjo gave comic songs. Encores  were the order of the evening, Mr.  Winters having to sing a third song.  Mrs. Kenney and Mr. King were~the  accompanists. There was one little  extract of a couple"of verses especially applicable to seed time:  What a wonderful thing is seed  Tho  one "thing deathless ^for  ever;  Forever old, forever new,'  Forever  faithful  and  utterly  true,  Fickle and faithless never.  Plant  Iilli.es  and  lillies  will  bloom,  Plant roses and roses will grow.  Plant hate, and'hate to life will spring  Plant love, and love* to you will bring  The fruit of the seed you sow.  After refreshments had been served and the singing of the National  Anthem brought a pleasant' evening  to a close.  MADE   A   CI-EAN-UP.  Olympic" Club   Poys -Well   Pale)   for  Poind  Community  Service.  The Olympic Club boys' clean-up  day "was "a great' success. Early Saturday morning' Capt. Gibson and his  boy scouts' \|ere ready to "can" the  unmentionables of back-yard ��������������������������� gleanings. Through tde kindness of.Messrs.  McMahon & Mack they put into service a Ford truck, and working from  S to 12 covered the south^end of town,  street by street. Boxes, big and little,  -were_loaded=in������������������-j^the=truck_and_w_hisk-  ed away to the dumping place.  In the afternoon they got the loan  of a larger truck from the McMahon  Garage. This made their work lighter, the loads laiger and trips fewer,  All afternoon they worked like beavers and when night came .had covered  every corner of the town.  Not only did they do a' good work  for the community, but they also  cleaned up over $50 for their club's  summer sport of baseball.  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  X ENDERBY   BRIEFS X  i?

The Rev. Capt. Gibson conducted  the morning service and at the evening service the Rev. E. Braden, pastor of-the United Church of Kelowna  preached, taking for his subject the  revival of the spirit of true Christianity in the church, and thQ need of  more attention being paid - to real  growth in a spiritual sense by all people. The tendency in past years, he  said had been toward entertainment  and self pleasure, in the church and  out of it, and now the people are  turning more to the development of  the spiritual side of life.  *,, Monday evening the anniversary  concert was held in Farmers' hall.

THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 1921  A Real Pleasure Park.  ���������������������������Tt has long been icll lhat the restricted recreation m-cHincf owned bv Enderby is not filling the  bill, as a pleasure park. It is not favorably located; is nol serviceable for anything except baseball, football and lacrosse; cannot be used for  picnic purposes, and is seldom visited except on  vt.iv. 24th. It never can bc made more of for  the'reason that it is too small for anything but  field sports. .  Tt would be quite a difl'ercnt matter if it were  tlie only propcrlv available for recreation purposes, or if nolhfng belter were obtainable, but  it does seem poor policy for thc town-to be satisfied with a third class recreation ground Vhcn  othcr property could bc had whicb is ideally located for a recreation park and which could bc  purchased and made over for park purposes on  what could bc got out of thc present ground if  sold for othcr purposes.  Todav when automobile parties arc touring the  countrv   throughout  thc  summer  season,     and  there is a demand for a camping place in every  town, it is becoming ever more-essential that Enderbv  should  prepare   to   accommodate     thicsc  aulo "tourist parlies.   Thc town is considered one  of the bcaulv spots of the Okanagan in natural  location   and surroundings.     We - who   are  too  familiar with ils charms fail to appreciate its natural advantages.    The river glides by, skirting  wood  and-glen,   meadow  and   morass^  making  scones  of unexcelled  beauty���������������������������scenes which  arc  lost upon us because of their familiarity.   What  ought to-be our greatest asset���������������������������the river���������������������������as allowed to flow by unnoticed and unappreciated.  .   Sooner or bx^er Enderbv will havc to take this  ma Iter of auto park and bathing facilities    for  visitors  to  thc town if we expect to keep pace  with fhe growing demand in this connection. We  must  do "something  to  develop  the advantages  nature has bestowed upon us qs a community;  otherwise wc shall fall behind and there is no  better time than the present to go into thc matter.    Nothing can bc gained by delay.    Indeed,  if Enderby had an auto park ready available for  touring parties with the opening of thc auto-season, the town soon would become a rendezvous  for many parties wliich now whisk through nn-  notitccd. ..  :..  Building Bird Houses.  The Women's Institute of Vernon last week  held their fifth annual bird house exhibit, in  which there were some fifty entries, thc name, ol  Julian Robarge figuring in the list "as one of the  prize winners. Here are a few suggestions given  as a result of the exhibit, which should interest  our Enderbv bovs1:  "Bird houses "should bc substantially built to  withstand tlie weather. Do not use glue in the  construction as this will soften and melt wilh ordinary weathering. If the bird house is to be  painted or stained do not use creosote for staining as the smell is objectionable:to birds. If paint  is used do not use conspicuous colors such as  white or,, red, as most birds tha tr will build their  nests in a bird house prefer an inconsSpictfotis  house andp ositio*. Blue birds arc an exception  and can generallyrbc induced to build in thc most  exposed positions.  "Birds that will build in a-bird house will genr  crally come back year, after year to the same  house, therefore construct the house of material  that will last and withstand .weathering.  "Make thc nesting' compartment roomy and  deep, birds use a comparatively large quantity of  material in the construction of their nests. The  voting must be kept warm, and free from  draughts. Make the entrance holes at least four  inches above the bottom of the bird house so that  the nest can be built without obstructing thc entrance.  "Elaborate structures containing" numerous  small pieces of wood nailed together arc iiot attractive to birds, neither are they durable. Make  vour bird houses simple, strong and durable and  do not fprgcl lhat they must be securely fastened  in position, and to that end they should bc constructed in such a manner that lhis is possible."  Down to the Work-a-day /Task.  Somebody put it nicely when hc said: Enthusiasm is'fine. So is idealism. So is optimism.  So is faith. So is vision. So are a whole lot of  other things. But always keep onc foot on the  trrou'nd. Too many of us are given to flying to  extremes. Wc lack ballast. Wc often let our  dreams run away with us. We lose all sense of  perspective and proportion. When things arc  going well with us wc conclude that they will  always continue to do so, and wc accordingly  neglect to provide safeguards against a reversal  oMortune. Tlie business concerns which arc in  direst straits today arc those that overshot the  mark most during thc boom. Thcy failed to  look ahead. They "reckoned upon prosperity Jasl-  in.cf forever. A good many������������������of, us do the same  thing. '      ,     -  "Aflcr all. plain, ordinary :gumption    is    the  Women Demand Jwsfiee.  A delegation from, the National Council of  Women wailed on the Minister of Justice, Ottawa, last, week and urged that new laws and  amendments to existing laws bc enacted. Recommendations made by the delegation were: (t)  That women be included iri thc panel of juries  sitting on cases where women arc concerned.  (2) Tha I adultery be made a crime. (3) That  legislation be enacted to give to women thc same  Tigli'lslo homestead as are now ciijotW^y^TWr  f-i)Tliat an extension of the indeterminate sentence be applied to those men and women convicted under the Criminal Code sections dealing  wilh sexual offenses. (5) That section' CvM of  Ihe Criminal Code bc amended by substituting  lhc word "eighteen" for "sixteen." Tliis section-  deals wilh the age of those who come under thc  jurisdiction of the juvenile courts.  (T>) That punishment by fines for crimes of an  immoral nature hc abolished1. (7) That a wife  deserter be. made an extraditable offender. (8)  A uniform divorce law for Canada. (0) That  the English law respecting divorce in forcc in  Alberla.

Mosl people" think that when thcy have responsibilities thcy must carry them all on their minds  every minute. But responsibilities are not to be  "carried"; they arc to be met and solved. * To  carry them around on your mind is useless; besides, such a practice will so weary your mind  lhat you cannot think clearly enough to meet or  solve anything. If you have responsibilities, and  we all have our share, file them where you can  gel at them when their turn comes; but do not  load them onto vour mind.���������������������������Christian D.

Sir James Lougheed, government leader of the  Meighen administration, announced in thc Sen-  ������������������tc a few days ago, that the appointment of commercial agents to represent Canada in thc United  States was under consideration. Jt was unfor-  junatc, however, that in Canaeia powerful concerns weic relying on .the govciWiTcrit^to^exfend  their trade instead of doing the work themselves'  Gncat commercial houses Owero "doing little toward making Canada felt as a trade entity. Canada was buying a million dollars a day more  goods from- the United Slates than shc was selling to that counlry. Canadian trade interests  were doing little lo overcome the handicap.'  "We arc spending over a hundred million dollars a year buying goods in thc United States  which we could produce at l;omc," Sir James  said.  Insuring Against Want  Mere continuous cll'ort, accumulation without  a fixed plan or system, niggardly economy on  thc one hand and reckless prodigality on the  other, arc not specifies for old age. Wc well  know that strict attention to business, a policy  of "sawing wood" or the process of spending  little and accumulating much does not always  work out in the accepted dramatic formula of  "living happily ever after" fifty. A deliberate  study" of results compiled by the Magazine of  Wall Street by an eminent statistician leads to  some amazing revelations', which prove that the  aforesaid good intentions do not materialize in  practice.    The figures prove:  1. At the age of forty-five, only 4 per cent have  accumulated anything���������������������������and kept it.  2. After fifty, not one in a hundred can recover  his financial footing, and not more than 2 per  cent arc independent.  Small effort means small success���������������������������there can't  bc anything big achieved without big effort.

Canada's vast heritage of inland  water resources is of prime national  and international importance and  must be intelligently safeguarded, he  added. Canada's water powers have  a direct and very important relationship to Canada's fuel problem.  After tracing the history of the International .Boundary Waters Treaty  between Great Britain of 1909, which  is still in force, Mr. White in summarizing his discussion said:  "We have observed that Canada  possesses an unusually rich heritage  in her inland waters���������������������������-including her  share in international boundary waters. W,e viewed water broadly as a  natural resource, and perceived how  the  claims  of  such  interests  as   do-  waterpower resources and observed  the "very great importance which attaches to .the .utilization ~of- these  powers, chiefly for municipal and industrial power and lighting. We noticed .that, the demand-in the eastern  portion of. the United States, is insistent and great for more of Canada's waterpower and that this power  if supplied, must come chiefly from  that^portion-of^Canada^-which^is^de:  pendent upon the United States for  fuel.. We then traced the history of  the 'circumstances which resulted in  the ratification of the Boundary  Waters Treaty between Great Britain  and the United "states. We * noted  some of the particular matters falling  within the scope of the treaty, and  observed how In certain specific instances the operation of the treaty  has failed fully to protect Canadian  interests.

Axel    Nordlow's    Black    Minorca    Hen  Lays   Three   Whoppers.  The heroic efforts of a Westboro  hen to produce a "titanic" egg have  eclipsed the Kansas and Regina hens  recently heard from. This hen, a white  Leghorn, laid an egg which weighed  slightly over a quarter or a pound, and  was S \U inches long and G^ inches  in narrow circumference. Both weight  and dimensions break the record  made by the Reginc hen, whose product was on the wrong side of a  quarter of a pound by an eighth, the  narrow circumference being only six  inches.  Axel Nordlow, who has a ranch in  the Mabel Lake Valley, read the  above'bit of news in .his family'paper.  Axel has a strain of Black Minorca  hens that do some big-egg laying  themselves, and last week he gathered some three whoppers from one hen.  On reading the Ottawa clipping he  concluded-to measure some of the  eggs he had on hand. Then he weighed three of them. -Out of the eggs he  had on hand he picked three, any one  of which will match the titanic egg  laved by the Westboro hen.  He sent three eggs to the Commoner office. See them. Each of them  are the same in size, measuring-S 5-16  inches the long way "and Gy, inches  around the middle, and together they  weigh  13 ounces.  Another  Batty Biddy.  A Victoria hen, belonging to a resident 'of St. Charles street, has laid  the world's largest hen's egg, says a  Victoria dispatch. The egg, which  was brought to.the editorial offices of  The Times and measured by the city  editor, is S 15-1G inches, "measured  around its maximum circumference.  The enormous egg was laid by a white  Leghorn. It is presumed that it contains two. yolks.  News despatches on April 15 said  that Driver Mitchell of the Vancouver  police department owned "a hen which  laid an egg with a maximum circumference of S 12-16 inches. It was  claimed-that this egg was the largest  ever laid  by a domestic hen.  Then She Died.  ' T)ie records of Victoria and Van-  courer hens arc retired into comparative insignificance when New West-  minuter comes to bat. "A hen owned  by Mr. J. W. Mcintosh, 12th street,  last year laid an egg that measured  10 Vi ��������������������������� inches, and weighed 6%  ounces.  RURAL  CHURCHES.  There is Hope,���������������������������yes, there is hope  that some day the churches may come  together, and where there are four or  five, there may be some day one  church,���������������������������a community church���������������������������as it  should' be. The other day in the parson's town there was an interesting  gathering. The head mogul aand_ missionary superintendent of the Congregational church of this state was  there. The head spell-binder and  nnnvpntinn-sprriM nry��������������������������� of- ihe- Baptist  church of the state was there. The  head circuit charger and district superintendent of the Methodist conference had intended to be there but  sent a representative, and the head  chief spook of the Episcopal church  of the county was there.*  There wo. for wc lesser lights, including thc parson, were- with Ihem,  dirr-us.-od (he matter of combinations  of i-hurches or "federating" churches,  whore it could or ought to be done.  Bettor say "ought" than "could" so  far, to be sure, but the latter will  never come without a deep sense of  the former.  "As for our church in lhat town"  spoke up one of the head men. "it  ought, to be treated as surplus kittens  would  be. taken  out and  drowned."  "As for our church in that town"  spoke up another head man, " we  crowded in there after another Avas  already in bhe field and have not and  never had any business there. It is  up to us to as gracefully get out. as  we hastily went in." And so this  wonderful meeting went on and the  map of the country was gone over.  The heads of these churches are to  go to some of their churches and admonish tliem to. come together, and,  if need be. take away any outside  financial support they may be getting.���������������������������Rural   New   Yorker.  *P.S.���������������������������The Presbyterian church is  not included in this list but it should  be.  HOW  CAPT. CROSSMAN   MET  DEATH.  A week or two ago Fred Moore, an  old-time resident of Enderby, but now  a prominent press photographer of  Chicago, attended a lecture given  there by Phillip Gibbs, the English  author and lecturer who is now touring America. In the course of his lecture the speaker, in telling of some  of the incidents of the war that came  under his vision, referred to the attack in which Captain Grossman met  his death. Capt. Crossman will be  remembered by many Enderby citizens who knew him when he was a  practising barrister in this town.  InJa letter to an Enderby friend Mr.  Moore quotes the words of Phillip  Gibbs in referring to the bravery of  Capt.  Grossman.    Said he:  "From the network of trenches behind, not altogether smashed, there  was time for men to retire to a second line of defense, if they were still  unwounded and still had strength to  gov An officer���������������������������Captain Crossman���������������������������  in command of one of these support  companies, brought several men out  of the trench.but did not follow on.  Hem turned again, facing the enemy,  and was last seen���������������������������a big husky man,  says one of his comrades���������������������������as he fired  his revolver and then flung it in a  German's  face."   -  KEEP   MUM   AND   HUMP.

Employes have as much at stake  as employers to see that lumber is  produced at a profit. Employes get  their wages first,' but the men who  risk their money in investment, must  wait for the profit to pay theirs. There  will be little new development in industry until industry of today produces that profit with which to develop.
