"Tell me what you Know Is tru-
I can guess as well as ran."
Vernon, Feb. j8.- The board of
directors of lhe Associated Growers
oi British Columbia, Limited, hah
completed a session lasting from
January 27 .to January 30, during
wbicb tbe operations of the season
were rsviewed and, in the light ol
the experience of the past two years,
several important changes in organization and operating methods were
decided upon.
Tbe business of the Associated
baing primarily and solely tbe man*
keting of the products of its uiem-
bers. in the interest of greater, effie'
iancy, it is felt that the drection and
control of operations should be
more largely concentrated in the
nales department'. To sell the prox
duet to the best possible advantage
ie ths one function of the Assodaa
ted, und all its activities must be
regulated to conform to that pure
With this end in view, tbe board
decided to consolidate the duties of
the general sand sales m-nagers in
the one department, which will be
responsible to the hoard of directors
the president. D. McNsir hus been
appointel general sales manager.
Basil Steuait will remain with the
Associated, acting as assistant to the
g°nornl salt's manager and in Mr
McNair's absence taking the duties
of tbat office.
Standardizing of Grade and
It has been increasingly apparent
during the last, two seasons that
much remains to be done in the way
of securing uniformity of grade and
reliability of our product before real
success in markeling can be attained
It is generally conceded, onid it has
been the experie ce of similar organizations, thnt this cun best b<?
accomplished nndpr central control
of packing operations. This, however, appears to bc impracticable at
.the present time under our local
omditions. aod the desired results
must be secured as far as possible
in some other way.
Tbe mirketing agreement gives to
central powers to issue rules and
regulations covering the grading,
packing and bundling of the crop
and to enforce the same. Tbe management has been instructed (o use
these powers to the fullest extent,
and by the appointment of a supervisor of packing houses establish a
system ot supervision over opera*
tions wbich it i9 hoped will nccom«
pli-h the desired results.
VV. J. Park, and W. L Macken
of the Fraser Valley Milk Producers
association, bave been appointed as
directors of the Associated, and Mr.
Macken has also been electod a mem
ber of tbe advisory committee. The
'directors feel assured tbat tbeir experience iu grappling with problems
and conditions, many of whicb are
identical with ours.will enable them
t) render va'mble assistance in the
attempt to solve lbe many problems
facing us.
Grower Contract
Appreciating the necessity of providing some medium tbrough which
thegrower^members may be kept in
formed on all matters of general interest in the conduct of tbeir business, it is intended to issue to ull
members a'monthly bulletin. ' By
bringing the individual grower in
direct toucb with the selling organs,
intion, and keeping hiru informed,
as far as practicable, of tbe methods
employed  in transacting his busi
ness, It is hoped that a spirit of bar
mony and confidence will result.
It was agreed that an organized
effort be made to increase members"
ship for the coming season, and for
this purpose and forjefeating a closer
contact with growers now member!*,
the management is instructed to
make special provisions for this
Jonathan Breakdown
The breakdown that bas been
very prevalent in Jonathan apples
and to eome extent in other varieties, bas presented a seiious problem for central lo determine. If the
defect had boen general and the resulting losses distributed proportions: Uy over all shipments, the
provincial season pool would bave
apportioned the loss equitably to all
growers. But tbere has been a mark*
ed variation in tbe extent to whicb
it developed in different districts,
shipments from some locals showing
practically no loss, in otherB a very
small percentage, wbile in a few dis-
tticls tbe loss has been  very heavy.
Under these circumstances it was
not considered equitable that any
district sbould be. asked to share
losses occasioned by imperfect fruit
shipped by other locals. It was,
therefore, decided tbat the losseB
due to shrinkage from this cause
sbould be borne by each local in so
far as they apply to fruit shipped
by tbat local. In coming to this
decision tbe board has been governed by tbe broad principle oi
equity involved, a principle tbat is
set forth in the book of rules and
regulations covering tbe point at
. Resolution
That this board adopts tbe principle of having the president devote
his whole time to tbe supervision of
the business, witb power to create
departments and delegate authority.
That departments' heads be made
directly responsible to bim and that
he be responsible to tbe board of
directots for tbe general conduct
of affairs of the Associated Growers.
Tbat tbis resolution become effective on February 1st, 1925.

ANY more inquiries are being
made in tbe United States
for farm homes in New Ontario than ever before, according
to a Dominion Government official
stationed at Detroit, but Manitoba
and northern Saskatchewan and
Alberta is the objective of most of
those now being sent north or who
are negotiating to cross the line.
"I am sending a number this
spring to northern Alberta, around
Laa Labiche," aaid tola agist  "In
June, 1923,1 sent from here to that
place 35 people in ono car, ALL
lived at Provement, Mich., and
their parents originally came here
from Quebec. These people were
experienced farmers, had a little
money and prospered from the
first. They have written their
friends and relations and are responsible for many more going into
Alberta. There are many Quebec
French in Ohio and Michigan and
many of them are returning to
British soil. I do not think it Is
an exaggeration to say that fifty
per cent of all those now crossing
tho line both to the prairies and
New Ontario, are former Canadians going home or Americans who
have previously resided on Canadian farms."

Tbe Fifteen Hundred Club of
Grand Forks and District held its
second annual general meeting in
tho G.W. V.A. rooms on Wednesday
evening last. There was a good attendance of members, wbo gathered
to bear the report of the president,
B J. Gardner, of the progress of the
club, and t e financial statement as
presented by tbe secretary-treasurer,
George H. Hull.
The club showed a gain in membership of 193 during the year, and
a cash balance of £1,913.66 to start
the new year with, after paying two
deatb claims curing 1924, This
makes a very creditable showing.
The directors elected for the coming year are: R. J. Gardner, president; D. C. Manly, vice-president;

A historic pageant of some proportions is being planned by the Calgary exhibition board for this year,
its object being to commemorate
the fiftieth anniversary of the
founding of the city by the old
North-West Mounted Police in 1876.
In the period which has since
elapsed, Calgary has grown to be
an extremely busy, modern city,
having a population of 75,000. A
stampede similar to those held in
Calgary in previous years is also
planned for this summer.
The Itinerary of the "All Blacks,"
New Zealand's wonderful rugby
team, hitherto unbeaten, in their
tour of Canada, was announced by
the Canadian Pacific recently. Landing at St. John, N.B., on January
31, from the company's steamship
"Montlaurier," the team will proceed across the Dominion via Canadian Pacific lines. They will make
short stays at Montreal, on February 1; Toronto, February 2; Niagara Falls, February 3; Calgary,
February 8; Banff, February 7-91

Very heavy summer travel is anticipated by the Canadian Pacifio
Railway during 1925, especially to
conventions on the Pacific coast of
Canada and the United States, C. B.
Foster, passenger traffic manager
of the company, announced recently.
Canadian and American railroads
expect 150,000 persons to attend
these conventions, some of which
will be very large. At least thirty
westward bound special trains, and
as many eastward bound, will be
provided by the Canadian Paciflo
to handle the delegates, Mr. Foster
stated, and Banff and Lake Louise
expect great seasons, as so many
of the travellers will stop off at
those famous mountain resorts.
There will also be a very heavy
movement to conventions in eastern Canada and the eastern United

In order to produce helium for government
dirigibles, such as the Shenandoah, it is necessary to reduce the temperature of natural gas
to 317 degrees Fahrenheit, b low zero, at
which point it becomes a liquid and the helium is drawn off This temperature is the
coldest ever attained. Cold, as scientists ex-
plaiu, is merely the absence of kinetic heat.
There is heat in everything.even at 60 degrees
below zero, for heat is merely another term
for molecular motion The molecules won't
stand up in line and perform their duty when
at absolute zero. To transform an element
into lidquid you "freeze" it. For instace, to
change the nitrogen to a liquid which is in the
natural gas at the helium plant, it is necssary
to reduce it to 317 degrees Fahrenheit below
zero. And that is the process used to get
helium. This doesn't explain it in detail, for
ihe technicalities are a secret and the government intends to keep tliem so. Lis case of war
this secret would be priceless to tho nation.

Canadians Make Pilgrimage to Holy City
Canadian response to the Papal Bull promulgating the
"Holy Year Universal Jubilee" is, according to
reports of transportation companies operating between
this continent and Europe, assuming unexpected proportions. Canadian Pacific officials report that applications for accommodation on the "S.S. Minnedosa",
chartered by the Hone Tours Incorporated to carry
Holy Year pilgrims to Bordeaux this summer, are
steadily pouring in from all over Canada and the United
States and that the Canadian contingent will be accompanied by many distinguished members of the episcopate,
clergy and religious orders. His Eminence Cardinal
Louis-Nszairo Begin, of Quebec, has signified hiB intention of sailing on the Minnedosa as have several other
high dignitaries of the Church in Canada.
The opening rites of Holy Year have already been
performed and the Papal Bull, formally announcing its
commencement and inviting Catholics the World over to
assemble in Rome haa been issued. The purposes of the
Great Jubilee as Bet forth in the Papal Bull are to live
tho year in expiation of Bin, and to     achieve
peace through the unity of all K men in divine
charity. The opportunities to /*» assist in the impressive Pentecostal ceremonies I and the special
audience afforded them by His JL** Holinesa Pope
TiU3 XI, are powerful factors in I the decision of
many to visit the Holy City.
The    Minnedosa   sails   from     f       Montreal  and
Ills Eminence i'.n ,-diual Beftin who will head the Canadian
PilOrlmage to Home, leaving Montreal and Quebec on May
5 mit on board the Mlnnedoaa.
Quebec on May 5th next, one of the first sailings from
the St. Lawrence season for Bordeaux where the pilgrims
will disembark and continue their journey by rail, stopping at Lourdes, Carcassone, Marseilles, Nice and Genoa
en-route to Rome. This vessel has accommodation for
seven hundred passengers and in view of the special low
rate quoted for the tour, it ia expected that the Minnedosa will carry a capacity passenger list.
Although born in Levis, Quebec, in 1840, Cardinal
Begin is well known in Rome as it was there in 1865, that
the present head of the Roman Catholic church in
Canada was ordained to the priesthood. In 1888 he was
created bishop of Chicoutirm* and, in another three years,
Archbishop of Cyrcne and coadjutor of His Eminence
Cardinal Taschereau. In 1894 be took over the administration of the diocese of Quebec, being elevated to the
Cardinalate in 1914.
Radio Manufacturers
Are tJnable to Keep
Up With the Demand
The radio industry right now is
running away beyond all estimates
and expectations. The manufacturers who have been longest in the
field had prepared for a record-
breaking season, but the season
started earlier thin was anticipated
and few manufacturers ure now able
to keep their production up to tbeir
Radio apparatus is much better
than t ever was. More perrons are
discovering'that it does not require
a collegej£course in electrical engineering to make it possible to build
tbeir own radio receiving sets.
, The most satisfactory feature o'
tbe increase in business is tbat it
probably wili be permanent. I do not
look for tbe usual drop next summer
says Major Hert H. Frost. By the
time tbe new higher power stations
authorized at the recent radio conference called in Washington by
Seoretary Hoover, will be in operation. Wltb tbose highnpower stations it will be possible lo cut
through the atmospheric disturb
ances which have tended to hamper
are of the opinion that thore will b>*
no such change. Development will
be gradual and there is no danger of
aperson buying t good set today
aod finding it obsolete a few veekr
Also, these high power stations
will make it possible forthe farmer
to receive his market and weather
reports during tbe daylight hours.
Heretofore sucb reception has been
extremely difficult, and tbis condition kept the farmer from buying
radio. At tbe present time probably
not more tban 16 per cent of all the
American and Canadian farmers
have receiving sets. The farmers
have had a very prosperous! year
and I look for a large percentage of
tbem to begin buying radio within
tbe next few months.
Thousands of people also have
heen waiting befoje buying sets in

The historic past of the Nootka section of the West Coast was recalled
recently when Lieutenant-Governor Walter C. Nichol, of British Columbia, unveiled and dedicated a monument commemorating the explorations of
those great English navigators, Captain Cook and Captain Vancouver.
The monument was built under the auspices of the Historic Sites and
Monuments Board of Canada which is placing similar memorials across the
Dominion on sites hallowed by interesting chapters of Canadian history.
A large party travelled on the Canadian Pacific S.S. Princess Maquinna
for the ceremony and left the steamer at the cannery wharf, boarding
launches for the short run to Friendly Cove. The party included Lieut.-
Governor Nichol, H. J. S. Muskett, nis secretary. Judge Howay and Mr.
Forsyth, Dr. C. S. Newcombe. the well-known historical authority who
wrote the "Circumnavigation ol Vancouver Island," Prof. W. N. Sage of the
University of British Columbia, Mrs. R. B. McMicking, representing the
I.O.D.E., Mrs. and Miss Howay, Thomas Deasy, late Indian agent for
the Queen Charlotte agency and a pioneer of 1859, Dr. David Donald.
Mrs. Cave-Browne-Cave, and Professor Macmillan Brown, chancellor of
the University of New Zealand. Dr. Macmillan Brown is one of the leading
ethnologists of the Pacilic, and has been spending the summer on the coast
investigating the Indians and their customs.
The new monument is seven feet broad by eleven feet high, with a
standard size bronze tablet bearing the following inscription:
"Nootka Sound, discovered by Cant. Cook, in March, 1778. In June,
1789, Spain took possession and established and maintained a settlement
until 1795. The capture of British vessels in 1789 almost led to war, which
was avoided by the Nootka Convention, 1790. Vancouver and Quadra met
here in August, 1792, to determine the land to be restored under the convention."
A feature of the entertainment provided those who took part in the unveiling ceremony was the Indian dancing, arranged by aborigines from
Clayoquot Sound, the Wicanini'-l* of the early navigators' journals.
Tentative plans are afoot for an elaborate pageant to be held at Friendly
Cove, Nootka Island, in four years time to colebrate the 160th anniversary
of events commemorated by the uu veiling of the cairn.
