iog tbe past year tbe quest ion has
been commented upon in these
oolnmne, but a solution of tbe probx

than ever before, and it has been
olesrly proven that tbe went has

experts it seems lint tbe removal of

Ono of the sanest policies ever

regard to the unemployment question has been evolved by tbe provincial administration. All during

for the work and, while tbere may be

Despite the difficulty of the sitn-

Vernon, Dec. 30.—A meeting ol
directors from the various locals
affiliai -*.*«ijh tbe Associated Grown
ere will be held at Kelowna immediately following the convention of
the British Columbia Fruit Qrowere
association at Penticton for the pur-
pjse nf discussing several questions
of organisation for the coming year
and getting the views of the locals
before taking action.
Experience of the past two seasons has shown the advisability of
changes in our eystem antfrnethods,
and it bad been suggested to the
board of directors that tbe services
of W. Maoken be obtained to make
a geueral survey ofthe whole organization and recommend such changes
as in bis judgment w uld lead to
greater efficiency, but Mr. Maoken'e
engagements will not permit him to
undertake this work before February at the earliest, and many questions oi policy must be decided before that time.
With reference to tbe proposed
engagement of Mr. Macken, it is unfortunate thai an unauthnrized item
bas appeared in some newspapers
giving the impression that he was
being considered for the position of
genersl manager of the Associated,
thereby placing bim in a false posi*
tion. Mr. Maoken has never considered occupying that position,
and in dot stated very definitely
that he would not accept any permanent engagement by tbe Aspoh
oiatrd. He has kindly consented
to give such assistsnee as bis business engagements wouid permit,
providid tbst endorsement of all
locals of tbe proposed work sbould
first bo secured.
One of the most important questions to come before the meeting of
local directors is that of some more
centralized form of control of packing operations, with a view to securing greater economy by eliminating duplication of work, more efficiency in operation, and uniformity

Municipal affairs have begunjto engross the
attention of the ratepayois.and from now until
the 15th matters in|connection with the civic
election will furnish most of the topics tor discussion.   A few of the enemies of the present
administration criticizes it for putting through
a $5000 loan bylaw at the end of its term  Yet
when the financing ofthe city during the past
year is compared  with the methods pursued
by councils of former years the retiring administration has nothing to be ashamed oi'.    The
1924 council  assumed  from   the ^preceding
council obligations i amounting $1700,   esides
the $4100 required for the purchase of the
Granby property.   There was a shortage of
$8000 water and light rates, and $2000 taxes.
In spite of these handicaps a fair amount of
public improvements has been carried out.
Six blocks of new electric liue have  been  reconstructed; r new cement sidewalk has been
built on Bridge street; considerable sums have
spent on improving the 0'ty park.   Not to
mention other improvements,  these    public
works have been a heavy 'drain on  the city
treasnry.   The two council previous to 1924
did practically no work of a public improvement nature and, unless the citizens wish to
see the city fall hopelessly behind in progress,
it   was absolutely necessary that this money
should have been expended during the past
Radio Corporation have worked out, is briefly
described as follows: The picture to be sent
is photographed, and the developed film is at-
lachad to a revolving cylinder of glass. Inside the cylinder is an incandescent lamp the
beam from whiah passes through the film witb
varying intensity according as parts of the
film are light or dark. The beam is then focused by a lens on a sensitive photo electric
cell called the"eye,' 'which transforms the light
waves into electrical waves that after they
have been amplified in a series of vacuum
tubes can b. transmitted by radio. The higb
power alectric energy tbat leaves the antenna
of the sending station is broken up by. an ingenious mechamism into impulses like dots
and dashes, corresponding to the longer or
shorter waves transmitted by the "eye." At
the receiving station the impulses £are again
amplified and translated back into the black
and white of a picture, A piece of paper is
wrapped round a revolving cylinder like Jthat
on which the original film was placed. A
specially contrived fountain pen bears against
the paper, and the electric current that has
come across the ocean controls the»pen and
causes it to reproduc, on the paper longer or
shorter marks that correspond to the length
of tho electric impulses transmitted by the
sending station:
Tho passage ofthe loan bylaw is not alarming. Had it not been for the deeds of the
Granby property arriving in the city at tnis
time the council would not have had to resort
to this method of 'financing. It is not all
likely tbat the entire amount will be used;
and, with the city's share of $2500 of liquor
und parimutual profits due to arrive here al
most any day, no,; one centj'of; the 'amount
named in the by aw may be required to finance
this year's council. At any rate, the council
usually passes a $15,000 loan bylaw at the
beginning of ea. h year, and the amount of the
present bylaw will likely be included in the
nev bylaw.

The of the stone tablets discovered in the
ruins of the ancient temple at the foot of Mt.
Sinai may possibly have been inscri ed by the
hand of Moses himself. The message, which
is in primitive Hebrew, reads: "I am the son
of Hatshepsut, overseer of the mine workers
of Sinai, chief ofthe temple of Mana and Jabu
[Jehovah]. Thou, O Hatshepsut, was kind to
me and drew me out of the water of the Nile;
and thou hast placed over the temple which is
on Sinai." It is well known that Hatshepsut
was a great queen of Eg pt who ruled about
1500 B.C and who opened copper mines on
Sinai. The date, moreover, corresponds with
that which Jewish tradition assigns to thc
lifetime of Moses.
can not understand why any person who has the least regard for the appear
ance of tbe city should criticize the council
for building the cement sidewalk on Bridge
street. It improves the looks of the business
district of the city fifty per cent; is a source of
comfort to everybody, residents and visitors
alike. And by no means the weakest argument in its favor is, that the taxpayers on the
street whom-it benefited most were entitled
to it.
