CASH BUYING
FUTURE POLICY
Penticton, March 10.—Independent
fruit growers and shippers held a
two days' session in Kelowna thin
week, when all but one firm in Ihe
▼alley were represented. Tbe provisions of the marketing and fruits acl.
M amended and passed by tbe legislature at Vlctorit, waB under consideration. Following a careful examination of the olauses of the act covering the powers of the commilttee of
direction as constituted, lt was decided to do all possible to make the bar-
ketlng operations of the committee
auccessful, regardless of the fact lhat
the Independents feel that their, views
did not meet with fair consideration.
Independent shippers are working
out a policy of cash buying for the
future. If the proposal -meets with
the wishes of the fruit growers, the
scheme will be put into egect in time
for the 1927 crop. Under the -proposal
submitted to the meeting at Kelowna
the packing house will pack and
warehouse the growers' fruit as one
operation and ijlie selling will be un
der the direct control of the grower
himself. A definite price will be
placed on bis products before they
pass from his control. Provision will
then be made for immediate payment
to the owner of the fruit, following
which the shipper will be at li'berty to
ship in any direction ordered by the
committee of control.

Gent of Giop
Kelowna, March 11.—The flrst annual meeting ot Sales Service, Ltd.,
the Bales organization of the Independent fruit and vegetable shippers, was
held fn the company's office here on
Monday, with shareholders in attend
ance from Vernon, Penticton, Summerland and Kelowna.
A report showing a very hatisfac-
tory year's operation was presented,
the total cars sold approximating
1800, or about 30 per cent of the total
crop.
Few people ra Kelowna realize that
there is a sales organization of such
ntagitude operating locally, and the
fact that Sales Service, Ltd., have
. mnde Kelowna their headjuarters
tends to confirm the belief that this
city is the center of the horticultural
industry ln tbe Okanagan.
It is stated by the management of
Sales Service, Ltd., that contrary to
the general opinion, its memlbers are
taking their full share of eastern Canadian and ex-port markets, and practically all of the export sales are on a
firm basis of cash against documents.
They feel that there are wonderful opportunities tn many of these export
markets, it they are properly handled
The meeting adjourned late in the
afternoon to ashemble again in about
ten daya to complete plans for the
coming year, when ft is expected that
the organization will be enlarged and
intended to take care of the tonnage
ottering.
The Independent shippers are not
prepared at tbls time to make any announcement aB to their plans in con-
Motion with tbe marketing legislation
which has pust been passed. They are
practically unanimous In the belief
i that no permanent remedy for market-
lag problems can be obtained by legislation and that the latter ls not In the
interests of the growers or the industry generally, but they also evince an
Inclination to take advantage of any
general geneflt which the acts may
■ ord.
Legislature
Ends Session
Victoria, March 8.—Atier sitting
for eight weeks and one duy, the legls-
lature last night wound up one of the
most strenuous antl njiectaculur Best-ions of recent .years.
Final prorogation of Uie house by
Lieutenant Oovcruor Bruce found the
bulky sessional legislative program
comjdete, Including taxation act
amending bill.
The lieutenant governor's formal
assent to 82 bills showed that the
session, which had been expected to
be light ln legislation, actually was
heavy.
The ipenit-uip feelings of honorable
members, exhausted by forty-two full
working days, found boisterous expression fn the closing ceremonies.
As they waited for the arrival of the
lieutenant governor they broke into
noisy choruses of popular sonss, fea,-
ured .by none too miuBlcal rendering
of "Show Me tlie Way to Go Home."
After His honor had left the chamber
and the members had sung "God Save
the King," tliey seized all the papers
in thdlr desks, according to well-
established custom, and threw them
Into the air wi'th cheerB. By the
time tliey had finished the floor was
about a toot thich in waste paper and
the attendants began the all-night job
of clearing lt up.
Orator: "No, gentlemen, Itell you
that if you ws.nt a thing done well
you must always do it yourself."
Voice from the -crowd: " How
about getting your hair cut?"
Preparing
for Spring
BY   ERWIN   GRBBR
Various Infallible aligns point to
the coming years of spring. Boys are
itching to get out of their heavy underwear, a robin has appeared. Ladles
are wearing straw hats and shorter
skirts. And pop's mind Is turning to
tho old bus and wondering just what
to do to make it fit for the spring and
summer months.
If any ihuportant work ls necessary
and the owner can not pedform the
operations, the shop should have the
car flrst, after which the simple operations may be done. Perhaps lt only
needs carbon removing and valve
Blinding, or lt may be something requiring more timl*, such as refitting of
piston rings, taklng-up bearings, etc.
Shop sbecol me congested because
owners wait until the last minute to
have necessary work done. Therefore, make arrangements with the
shop or service station early. Tou
would demand an estimate of the cdtrt,
from any shop. The service stations
of car manufacturers are using the
flat-rate plan almost, generally. This
plan provides that certain w»rk be
charged for at a certain price stipulated beforehand. In ot!her shops, a
maximum price is quote.). There is
no need to go to a shop where no estimate is given.
Make chassis lubrication occupy
the greater part of your time as lt
ls worthy of it.   Drain and refill the
transmission and gear axle, perhaps
the clutch also If it Is of the oil type.
Gear oils should be heavy for summer work. Some miotorists prefer
special gear compounds. Above all,
use a good grade of lubricant.
Grease should be used freely where
necessary, as, for example, spring
shackle bolts, universal joints, for
cup filling where cups are provided.
If the car is equipped with an alemite
orsimllar high pressure lubricating
system, the procedure is obvious.' You
may find some difficulty ln forcing
the grease through some parts that
have become partly rusted fn place.
Tap the part gently with a hamtaer.
If this does not help, squirt some
kerosene through any opening provided. If neither will permit grease
to be forced in, better dismantle the
parts and clean them.
Adjustment of parts and tightening should be done systematically.
Attend to the running gear, flrst
tightening spring clip nuts, taking up
play in the steering system, adjusting brake rods, ttc. See that there
Is no excess play ln the wheel bearings, tighten engine holding down
bolts, etc. Tighten all chassis nuts
and bolts you can. Tben tighten
body bolts, radiator bolts.fender bolts
and other sheet metal parts.      s
The storage battery if used continuously wUl call for its usual Inspection and filling. If the battery was
sent to a service station for storage,
ft may be found in place just as received from the station. If the battery was left lh the car for two
monthsor more, it will be necessary
to have it placed on charge at the
service station before it can be installed ln the car.

Tonopah Is
Again Excited
Tonopah, Nev., March 8.—The
mah of gold seekers to Weepeh, Ne
Tada, which has created a. small tent
city there since the discovery there
last week of gold ore assaying $78,-
000 to the ton, continued today with
grim, prospestors replacing tbe pleasure (jet-kerh who flocked to the scene
ever, tne week-end. The men who
Staked out claims.have been correcting boundaries to forestall claim
jumpers.
The gold fever burned so Intensely
that the miners found no time for
artificial stimulants, and two bootleggers who set lip. business in the
camp reported trade dull.
Restless Greece
Greece, which has shared honors recently with Spain
as the home of Europe's latest revolution, has had a succession of such disturbances since the World war. This
unrest has been ascribed by some mlstorians to the long
period under Turkish oppression, but even in classic days
the Greek seemed ever ready with the sword and shield.
To separate the life of modern Greece from the splendors of its classic or Byzantine days is not easy, and the
Greeks themselves would be the first to resent it. They,
of a truth, deem themselves the direct descendants of the
worthies of .classic days, and certain it is that their life
has shown a persistent continuity which warrants the
claim.
Whether their land has been ruled by a Roman emperor, a Prankish duke, a" Venetian bailli or a Turkish
pasha, the thread of Hellenic existence has remained unbroken. In the monasteries have been preserved their
religion, their tongue, their traditions; mothers have
taught their children the glories of the Greek heritage ln
defiance of the infidel interdiction, and today the Greek
people stand forth.in character at least, exactly as they
did In the days of yore, as Aristophanes pictured them,
as St. Paul described them, and aB every scholar has
learned to regard them.     '
in many of Its aspects Greek life remains unchanged
from its classic features. Modern Athens, to be sure, (s
a brilliant capital, advancing its claim- to be known as
the Paris if t he Levant. Less tban a century ago it
finally passed from Turkish possession, and was then a
handful of hovels huddled together beneath the Acropolis. Today it is a city of wide and gay streets, dotted
with small parks aud adorned with handsome public
buildings, many ol' them the gifts ot rich Greeks, who
have delighted to spend upon the mother country the
fortunes which they huve gained abroad.
To such generosity Athens owes the noble group of
liiiilillni's which comprises tho university, the National
library and Uie line classic reproduction which houses
Academy of Science, ami. above all, tbe noble stadium,
built upon the foundations and along the old lines and
ingeniously carrying in Its fabric every fragment of the
old structure that could.be found.
In the midst of tills modernity stand the remains of the
golden days of Athens, sedulously preserved and open to
inspection and study with a freedom nowhere equaled.
The focus, -&f course, is the Acropolis, with its Parthenon,
incomparable even iii its ruins, its cliffs and grottoes still
the home of legend - and fable. 1
Within a narrow circle all the phases of ancient Athenian life are rpre.-ented. Under the shadow of the
mighty rock stands the classic templt of Theseus, best
preserved of all the ancient monuments and serving a
varied purpose throghout the centuries' as pagan temple,
Christian church and   Turkish palace.
Only a few steps away rise the well-kept walls of the
Stoa of Hadrian, which, with other works of Latin origin,
speak of that ancient daiy when a Roman emperor ruled
the violet-crowned city.
In this land of changing allegiance the marks of the
Venetian occupation, as elsewhere, wefe Bet deep and
strong,. Corfu is today, ln its externals at leaat, as much
Italian aB either Venice or Naples; while Nauplia, Pa-
tras and many of the island seaports still make use of
the battlemented -fortresses erected by the Latin rulers.
As of old, the Greeks swarm the seas. The Piraeus Is'
one of the busiest and most crowded of Mediterranean
ports; lt Is indeed one of the important centers of transshipment for the Bast, and the Oreek merchant marine
has multiplied its fleet from year to year. The Corinthian canal, after many financial vicissitudes, now seems
in a way of becoming each year a more and more useful
route between the Ionian and the Aegean seas, and Its
sheer walls are eloquent of the persistence with which
an ancient dream has been fostered and brought to realization.
The Greeks are essentially a town people—made so
doubtless by the necessity ln Turkish days, of coming
together in masses for self-defense. But, whatever the
reason, one-tenth of the entire population is to be found
in Athens and the Piraeus.
The drain of emigration from the rural districts has
been enormous. Indeed, In some villages ot the Peloponnesus there remain scarcely enough men to fill the offices.
In one sense, however,, the emigration bas been of beneflt to the country; for large sums of money are sent
back each year, especially from America, to the families
which have been left at home.
But while Athens and a few of the larger towns bave
taken on the aspect of today.country life in Greece remains ln most of its fundamentals as lt has been for ages.
Within two hours' drive of Athens one could see.a few
years ago, peasants plowing their fields with crook.d
sticks, exactly as they probably did ln the days of 'Homer.
The shepherd boys of today manage their flocks—and
there are said to be more goats than Greeks In Greece—
with a crook fashioned upon the same lines as that which
Corydon carried. And ln Thessaly one still finds ln
dally use the solid-wheeled crat that has come down
without substantial change from tbe days ot Jason.
The distaff remains the chief instilment in preparing
wool for the hand looms on whioh are woven the coarse
shaggy stu s worn by the peasants, and one rarely finds
it absent from tbe busy fingers of the older uames who
sit and work in the sun.
Greece Is a land of much sunshine and life ls followed
much ln the open. The family oven Is Invariably to be
found ln the courtyard, and it ls heated with dried twigs
brought froml the eountriy districts In huge loads upon
the patient little donkeys, which vie with the goats ln
being the most useful memlbers of the household.
Market day, of course, brings all the community together and is generally an occasion of much gayety,
while the feast daps, which are numerous, are literally
observed.   Fasting, too, Is frequent and severe.
On feast days there ls always dancing, the most famous to be seen at Megara during Easter week—a survival, and the only one, of the olden paivAthenalc pageants of classic times,
Megara prides Itself on being a pure Hellenic community ln the midst of the Albanian flood which once
overran the Attic plain. It was.once famous as a marriage mart during the faster dancing season. This is
no longer true, because, as the maidens sigh, so many
of the men have gone off to America,
It ls not Pot easy to go about in Greece. The railroad
lines are meager, thie roads are not good, and the hotels
leave much to be desired. But the famous battlefield
where "mountains look on Marathon and Marathon
looks on the sea"is easily accessible to Athens. So.too,
.Olympia, where archeologlsts have unearthed remnants
of the great temple, with Its incomparable Hermes, the
masterpiece of Praxiteles and clearly the finest sculpture
which has yet come from human hands, ls a favorite
shrine for lovers of the beautiful.
But the most accessible of all the great centers of
classic life is Delphi, a fitting shrine for an oracle.wlth
Its massive and somber cllgs and Its majestic hills looking out) to the golf.
The flow of settlers into western
Canada for 1927 commenced in
earnest recently when two special
Canadian Pacific trains brought
more than 400 persons into Winnipeg. About 200 of the new arrivals
were destined for Manitoba; 100 te
Saskatchewan, while Alberta and
British Columbia absorbed the rest
about equally.
The value of building and con-,
struction contracts awarded In Canada in 1926 was $372,947,000, compared with $297,973,000 in 1925, an
increase of 25 per cent. Last year's
'total was the highest for several
years. Development In the mining,
power and paper industries in Canada was an important factor contributing to the activity in building
during the past year.
When the Canadian Pacific steamship Montroyal docked recently at
New York, after completing her first
cruise to the West Indies of the
year, she resembled a floating menagerie, for there were assembled on
board over 200 love birds, parrots
and monkeys. These pets were
bought by passengers on the cruise.
During the month's cruise the vessel
touched at fourteen ocean ports and
visited thirteen countries.

GRANT LANDS
Viotorla, Maroh 9.—Premier Oliver
Is preparing already for the presentation of an exhaustive case before Mr.
Justice Martin of Saskatchewan, who
has heen appointed by the federal
government to Investigate British
Columbia's claim for the return of
railway grant lands to provincial con-
troll.
While arranging for the com-pila-
tfon of the province's brief, the premier moved to ensure tbe issuance
to Mr. Justice Martin ot a commission suffliently broad to cover all this
province's demands, ln a telegram
to the federal government, Mr. Oliver
asked that tbe contents of this commission be submitted to him before
it was actually confirmed, so tbat he
might satisfy himself that lt is broad
enough. 1 ,
"I have no reason to believe tbat
the commission will not be satisfactory so tbat we mjay proceed under
it, but I want to be sure just what lt
contains," the premier stated.
Sweeping reduction fat tbe rates
of electricity to all sorts of consumers has been announced by a
leading electrical company tn New
Brunswick. The new rates are being filed with the New Brunswick
Board of Public Utilities. Under
the new schedule of rates the householder will be able to secure electricity for as low as 3 cents a kilowatt hour, the same rates applying
to stores and offices.
Good seed cars, under the joint
directors of the Manitoba Depart*
ment of Agriculture, the Dominion
Seed Branch and the Manitoba Agricultural College, in conjunction with
the Canadian Pacific Railway, art
touring the province. The train
consists of a lecture car, a baggage
car with types of all modern farming mills and other machines; a horticultural car which ls the first to
be operated in Canada. Lectures
and demonstrations are given at
each stop.
Emile St. Goddard, youthful Manitoba dog musber from The Pas, carried off the honors in the Eastern
International 120-mile dog derby at
Quebec recently. St. Gcddard's time
for the three-day race was 11 hours

faster than the previous record for
thc same event. He nosed out Leon-
hard Seppala, hero of the Nome,
Alaska, serum epic by 20 minutes
and 20 seconds. George Chcvrette
took third place, while "Paddy"
Nolan, 15-year-old musher, maintained fourth place throughout the

comment was intended to siupport a resolution moved ' The whole of contlnentalr America a ords a home for
bp Reg nald Hayward, Conservative, in which tho gov-1 the duck hawk, which is the swiftest, most daring ol
ernment was ureed to put aln end to the export of raw ; hawks.   The quick wing beat, unlike that of most other
logs from British Columbia to other countries. The
newspaper in question also that thc Victoria member has
warned the publ c "that British Columbians nre forced
to follow the raw logs in order to secure employment."
The explanation of this whole situation is a simple one
and is far from alarm ng, The Victoria Times puts it
clearly in the following editorial comment: "It has been
pointed out several times that out of the 3,000,000,000
feet of timber cut last year only 7 per cent of t left the
province in the shape of raw logs. Of this small total
55,000,000 feet only went to the United States and the
balance, amounting to 170,000,000feet, went to Japan. It
also should be repeated that only about 50,000,000 of the
exported material were cut from licensed areas over
wh ch the government has any control. The morning
paper says tbat no motion before the legislature has
aroused more interest in other parts ot the country than
this one which stands in Mr. Hay ward's name.' It wonld
add a great deal of interest to the controversy if either
Mr. Hayward or the Colonist would inform the public
how many British Columbians followed tbe 170,000,000
feet of logs to Japan in order to r. cure ebployment.
Does either really believe that even half a dozen British
Columbians followed the 55,000,000 feet which went to
the( United (States? Incidentally, the thing wbich is
arousing interest iln Canada, and particularly in this
part of it, is the enormous amount oi' new capital that
continues to flow into the Dominion for employment in
the erection of new plants to turn out the finished article
in the shape of paier. This gratifying condition Is best
reflected in the fact that our output of pulp and paper
now is the largest of any country in Uie world." There
still is no answer either from Mr. Hayward or the Colonist as to how many British Columbians have followed
hese inferior logs to J Japan.      ((((((
Notes • Notions • Rotables
The year 1926 will be recorded by nature as the greatest growing period for a century or more. Foresters
have just found that the annual ring growth made by
the forest trees on the Pacific coast during the twelve
months of 1926 is twice the width of former years in recent history. Unusually mild weather, plentiful rainfall
and very little wind proved benleflcial to foreBt growth.
Rectnt examination of new yrowth rlnvs is amazing, report lobpers and student foresters. It is possible in the
study of ring rtgwoh to discover whether former years
cold or warm, in connection with thin or wide exqansion
of the tree trunks.
Nonw-ithstanding its many and growing rivals, London
continues to be the greatest seaport of the world. During the last year ships entered London port having a
total tonnage of 22 347,920 tons. The ocean trade of the
port that year had a value of $3,700,000,00,0.

The Southern Cross is the popular name for a south
ern constellation situated near the Antarctic circle, and
therefore never visible in northern latitudes. It consists of four bright stars.to which fancy, aided by Chris
tian associations, gives the cruciform shape. The two
brilliant stars which murk the summit and foot of the
Southern Cross have nearly the same right ascension,
The constellation, therefore, Is almost vertical when
passing the meridian and these two stars act as pointers
to the Antarctic pole. ,

Tucked away in the lonely hills and canyons of the
arid and semi-arid regions of the United States are deposits of various mineral substances the uses of which
gradually are becoming known and valued. As Industrialism continues to increase the hidden resouces of the
country, more and more, will be brought io light and
more uses will be found for them and their by-products.
For instance, there is bentonite, a term applied to one
kind! of the so-called collodial clay deposits. It gets
its name from the Benton shales, near Rock creek, Wyoming. Similar deposits are found fn numerous places
in Canada, Mexico and the United States, usually in the
viol-nlty of extinct or living thermal springs, thewaters
of which have (been ior are rich in alkaline salts.Often
the deposits are located in volcanic regions and in desert
country. They are sometimes found in strata form", but
now and then, as ln the Mohave desert, they exist in
pockets. Several deposits have been found in the arid
regions of California and in Nevada, \ state potentially
rich in minerals of many kinds.

Saskatoon, Sask., owes its name to a handful of bright
rod berries presented to John N. Lake, of Toronto, in
1882. Thie berries, known as saskatoon berries, grow
profusely in Saskatchewan, and when Lake received the
handful from a young man, they gave him) an idea for a
name to give the town, the site for which he had selected
for the Temperance Colonization society. A few houses
were built in Saskatoon in 1883 and a post office was
pened there October 1, 1884.
Entertaining the spirits of ancestors and .conversing
with them is as nil as au actual affair of this world to
the natives of some ol the small Japanese villages in the
neighborhood of Toklo. Signal vres are kindles by the
villagers before the graves of their ancestors and the
spirits invited to como homo with them to partake of
the feasts Bpread in their honor. When the fires go out,
torches are lighted to show the way home for the de
parted souls. As they wulk it Is not at all unusual for
old folk to talk aloud to the spirits and often these simple folk point out a mud puddle to their spirit guests,
warning tliem to bo careful. When the family reaches
home, a tub of water is found at the entrance, in which
the spirits are invited to wash tbeir feet. At the table
the living members talk to the spirits, usually about in-
cldentis that took place while the ancestors were alive.
The following night the spirits are escorttd back to the
graveyard and bidden farewell until the following year.

Strengthen
Weak Colonies
in th  Spring
In every colony of bees there ls a
certain amount of routine work that
nas to done no matter whether there
iB a crop of neotar awaiting to be
gathered from the flowers or not.
The amount of sunplus honey that
any colony can be expected to store
will be ln direct proportion to the
number of bees It has over and above
those required to perform the routine
of that colony. These extra bees are
known as the field force and to produce them at the right time and of
the right age requires skill and a
knowledge of bee behavior on the
part of the beekeeper. The field
force muht bt as large as possible
and ready for work at the commence
ment of the main flow of nectar and
to be of the right age must be produced during the six or eight weeks
just prior to the flow.. The first step
Is to have each colony headed with a
good, prolific queen during the spring
and early Bummer, as the queen ls responsible for laying the eggs that
will produce the workers. The second step is to have each colony strong
enough in bees to take care of the
maximum amount of brood the queen
can produce. Weak colonies can be
strengthened by any of the following
methods, given in order of preference;
1. By uniting to them combless
packages of bees imported early ln
the spring.
2. By giving combs of sealed brood
from extra strong colonies.
3. Illly shaking into them bees
from extra strong colonies.
4. Bp placing the weak colonies
over strong colonies with a jueen
excluder 'between, and leaving them
there tor from two to three weeks.
Rememlber also that it requires food
to rear bees and that protection from
cold influences the rate of expansion
of the brood nest.-^C. B. Gooderham,
Dominion Apiarist.
Condi!ions Affecting
The Success   Of
Legume Inoculation
Although in some cases Inoculation
may mean the difference between success and failure, yet lt sbould always
be remem/bered that It is gut one factor in successful legume production.
Even the best of cultures will ge unsuccessful if the other conditions
necessary for a legume stand are not
met. An inoculated crop rejutres
the same care in seed selection and
In the preparation and tillage of the
soil as an uninoculted crop. When
good soil and climatic conditions prevail, and when the crop Is cared for
properly, Inoculation ls most likely to
bring benefit.
Failure of inoculation to beneflt a
crop may be assigned to a number of
different causes. Information on
this point is being accumulated gy
the division of bacteriology, Central
experimental farm, Ottawa, through
reports of field tests returned by farm
ers using nitro-cultures. Of the hundreds of reports received for the year
1924 to 1926, 78 per cent Indicated
that the crov was benefited through
In a large number of cases the reason for apparent non-success is due
to the soil going already inooculated.
Both treated untreated plants grow
ojually well ln an Inoculated soil, the
added bacteria being obviously superfluous.
In other Instances, however, where
crop growth ls poor with treated us
well as untreated seed, adverse climatic or soil conditions mny be responsible for the luck of success.

The Choristers from Westminster Abbey and St. George's
Chapel, to sing their way through Canada without fee or
recompense of any kind except the applause they wili gain,
have a history going bark to a day when the great-grandfather
of Columbus ww* a humble Genoese, watching boats sail out
and believing that if they went too far they might topple over
the eJge of the world. So Canada must feel comparatively
young in the knowledge that the soft-footed Indian was still
emiieror of the prairie, when the choristers first sung to thc
order of Edward III in lhe chapel of St' George at Windsor.

the centuries, and that story is tokl-almost completely in'the

which these visitors arc the ambassadors.

6-ens'K change dramatically, the choristers, of St. George's
have still gone on with their services, symbolizing the chivalry
and honor of the twenty-six Knights of the Garter. The
Gentlemen of St. George's and the boys of Westminster
visiting Canada number twenty in all, the eight choristers or
lay clerks of the Chapel at Windsor are those who sing the
evening and moi-hing services in the chapel; and in the more
| private services,dssociated with thc life of thc Crown and the
Order of the Garter. They also provide the music in the
Private Chapel when Their Majesties are in residence at
Windsor Castle.'
The Dean of Windsor, Dr. A. V. Baillie, who will give
lectures during the tour, on Windsor Castle, the Chapel of
St. George and Wesl minster Abbey, is one of the outstanding
figures in the ecclesiastical life of England. He is the godson of Queen Victoria and a nephew of Lord Elgin, former
Governor-General of Canada. In addition to being chaplain to the King, he is also Registrar of the Order of the
Garter.
Dr. Edmund H. Fellowes will lecture on Elizabethan and
English Church music. He is the foremost living authority
on music of the Tudor period, as witness his monumental
edition of the English Madrigais which he has completed In
36 volumes. . r'. ■
As organist of Westminster Abbey, the choirs of Mr.
Nicholson have been an inspiration, not only to the habitual
worshippers at the Abbey, but also to the vast body of
visitors to that shrine from all over the world. He is" the
author of "British Songs for British Boys." During' thie
tour he will conduct a number of concerts, especially for
Scouts and Guides in which Scout music will largely figure.,
Canadians are therefore given an unique opportunity to
hear the best of English church and Old English part music,
while a standard of excellence i3 reached in choral singing,
that is probably unexcelled in any part of the world.
