APRIL 10, 1919.���4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Schools Call For larger  Outlay This Year  A foretaste of some of the financial difficulties which would (ace  [the council during the present year  wae given Monday evening in the  presentation by the chairman of  school trustees, Mr. 'Bigger, of the  school estimates, showing an increaae oi over $5,500 over the  ���mount paid by the city for school  purposes last year. The requirements of the schools this year, said  Mr. Bigger, would be $26,470, less  the government grant of $7,650,  leaving a sum of $18,820 to be  raised by taxation. The increase,  he explained, was due chieflv to  increases in the salaries of teachers, and in additions which had  to be made to the staff. The estimates had been very carefully considered and represented the absolute minimum which would enable  the Board to carry on school work  in a satisfactory manner.  The Mayor pointed out that owing lo amendments to the Municipal Act, the portion of sinking  fund collected each year had to  be placed to the credit of that account. It would therefore be necessary to add to the tax levy an  1 amount to cover the sums' that  would not be 2 collected during  1919. Otherwise the city might  have to close the schools from lack  of funds.  The estimates of the Parks Committee  were   presented   by   Aid.  Knowles, as follows:  Improv.to sports grounds $ 500.00  Trees   25.00  Watering trees on streets  60.00  Park driveway extension  50000  40.00  Plants   25.00  Cutting weeds on streets  175.00  Water for park   560.00  1050.00  3.15  Rutland News  Mrs. Victor Dilworth and family  have relumed from Calgary.  Some friends of Mrs. Plowman  gave her a surprise visit on Wednesday evening. A very pleasant  time waa spent,  While Mr. Monteith was driving  past a motor truck last weeks his  horse took fright with the result  that he was thrown and badly injured.  The Girls' Enterprise Club will  meet at the home of Mrs. G. Monford on Friday, April 22nd, at  8 p.m. All membera are urged to  attend as important business will  be decided at this meeting.  The Methodist Ladies' Aid held  their annual meeting at the home  of Mrs. W. Gav, when the officers  for the year were elected, as follows: President, Mrs. W. McDonald; vice-pres., Mrs. D. McDonald;  secretary, Miss Lucy Craig, reelected; treasurer, Miss Joy Fleming. The ladies decided to hold a  social on May .9th.  There was only a small attendance at the lecture in the achool on  Friday evening. Mr. Gibson is a  good speaker, and the lecture on  Elementary Agricultural Education  was listened to with great interest  by all. A number of lantern slide  views of school gardens were shown  by Mr. Austin. 'Mr, Gibson also  gave a short talk on War Savinga  and- Thrift Stamps. A hearty vote  of thanks waa tendered, to Mr. Gibson at the close of the meeting.  Meeting Decides to Erect Both  Memorial Hell and Monument  Only Large and Comprehensive Scheme will Satisfy Desire to  Honor Soldiers' Memory - Would Raise $100,000 or More  to Build and Equip Public Hall and Memorial Arch  3,250.00  Debenture!-Expense 3,352.26  $6,602.26  It was decided to lay the estimates on the table until next meeting so as to allow all the committeet to present estimates which  could then be taken up together.  Aid. Meikle reported that the  owner* of property in the packing  house district had applied for the  loan of one nf the fire hose reels  in order to provide themselves  with more efficient fire protection  than was possible at the present  time. The idea v/as for the property owners in that district to purchase a quantity of hose for use  with the reel and have a small shed  constructed near a hydrant. Thi  hose would be connected to the  hydrant ready for immediate use  in the event of an outbreak of fire.  Aa the Brigade had a hose reel  which was not' being used at the  present time Aid. Meikle- recommended that thia be loaned them.  The council agreeing the necessary  authority >vas given.  On the suggestion of Aid. Mantle  it was decided to call for tenders  for sprinkling the streets during the  summer months.  Aid. Lloyd-Jones asked whether  it waa desired to take any action  in reference to "Clean-up Day" but  the council decided that the best  method of cleaning up the city was  to have the constable go round and  notify all citizens that their property must be cleaned up and all refuse removed before the Itt of  ��� May, otherwise action would be  taken under the provisions of the  Health By-law.  Aid. Lloyd-Jones also reported  that complaints had been made of  the stagnant water which was being permitted to accumulate in the  sloughs in the northern section of  the town. It was felt, however,  that the work necessary to remove  the cause of this complaint would  entail too great an expenditure to  be pai^ out of current revenue, and  that it would be impossible to take  any action in the matter in the near  future.  Aid. Mantle reported that A. McMillan, assistant foreman of the  public works department, had sent  in hit resignation. He had been  in receipt of $3.50 per day but had  not been satisfied, and the com  mittee had not deemed it expe  dient to recommend any increase  in his wage's. Aid. Mantle stated  that it would be necessary to en  gage another man at he consider,  qd it to be in the bett interests of  One of our teachers has suggested a verv suitable form of birth-day  present for a boy or girl, namely,  a thrift card just started with one,  two, or three stamp*. I think that  is a splendid idea.  The beginners have started thia  week. Miss Wood is selling stamps  to them. They have already $4.75  which ia very good for a start.  The senior grade ha* $141.75,  the intermediate $104.50 and the  junior $66.50, making a total of  $332.75.  lt is only right to say that some  of the children are not getting their  stamps at tchool, but we have in  eluded their savings in the above  total. We do not care where they  get the atamps so long as they save.  The school gets no commission on  the sales.  Will Be Known as  "Jack McMillan" Chapter  On Monday afternoon the I.O.  D. E. held their "Christening Tea"  at the home of Mrs. D. D. Campbell. This Chapter will in future  be known as the " Jack McMillan  Chapter," named after one of our  much loved and honoied heroes.  Mrs. Telford made a few appropriate remarks, after which Mrs.  j. W. Jones presented Mrs. Mc  Millan, mother of the hero, with  an I. O. D. E. pin, suitably engraved, making her an honorary member of the Chapter. After, the regular business had taken place, Mra.  Campbell served tea.  An important real estate transaction has taken place this week  through the medium of Messrs.  Harvey, Duggan, & Davies, in the  transfer of the well-known fifty-acre  ranch of C. H. Geen, near Ellison,  comprising thirty acres of bearing  orchard. The purchaser is Mr.  Percival Sands lately of Nottingham  England. Mr. and Mrs, Sinds and  family of six came down from Vernon jesterdcy and are taking immediate posession of their new  property. The same firm also reports the sale of the property of  Mr. Dangerfield at Wood's Lake, to  Mr. Ralph Berry, lately of Vermilion.  the city to have an assistant who  would be conversant with the de-  dails of this department's work in  the event of the foreman being unable to attend to his duties for any  cause. To this the council agreed  The public meeting held yesterday evening to discuss the matter  the matter of a soldier,' memorial  was disappointing as to attendance  but it did not lack enthusiasm in  its desire to do honor to those who  had gone from the diatrict to fight  for the Empire's cause, and had  given up their lives in its service.  The occasion happened to be the  anniversary of Vimy Ridge, the  battle which had made name of  Canadians famous fur all time, and  this was referred to by several of  the speakers.  Mayor Sutherland, who occupied  the chair, ssid it was the deaire of  everyone to do something to perpetuate the memory of those who  had given their Uvea for their  country. Very few of us realized  as yet what the war had meant to  us ��� the privileges and liberties  which had been retained to us by  the sacrifices, npt only of those  who had fallen, but of thoae who  had returned. It was our duty to  give expression to this desire to do  them honor Many were of the  opinion that a simple monument  should be erected, confined to  those who had lost their lives, in  the war. Others thought that those  who had fought and returned  wounded, gassed, or maimed,  should also be recognized by erecting a building in which they could  have a place tb meet and renew  that sentiment of frieneship which  had been born in the trenches.' It  was the purpose of the present  meeting to decide. Whatever was  chosen, he hoped that all would  give it hearty support, and that  none would be small enough to  withhold subscriptions because his  'own little pet scheme was not the  one adopted. He pointed out that  the council had taken a month to  lay the matter before the public,  and that it had been well advertised. They wanted to give no one  an excuse for not being at the  meeting and having his say. He  asked for the fullest discussion.  "Let us be through with discussion  after to-night," he said. "When  the decision is made it will be a  matter for subscriptions."  The Rev. E. D. Braden in an  eloquent and appropriate address  said that this was one of the great  days, in the history of the city and  diatrict. There had been many  proud and many sad days in the  past four year*, and Kelowna had  a record of which any city might  boast, of men who had gone over  to the fight and left all, resigning  themselves in willing- service to  their country's cause. Whether  they had died on the battlefield or  returned wounded or broken in  body we loved these men from  the bottom of our hearts, and felt  we could not do enough to repay  our debt of gratitude. To-night,  he said, we would plan a memorial which would endure for years.  It must be one worthy of Kelowna,  which had never failed when asked for men or money to carry on  the war. It must not tail now, and  this must call for the interest and  sympathy of every citizen. It must  be one which will express unity of  action and sentiment, so that all  would contribute.  To Mr. J. W. Jones, M. L. A.,  fell the duty of moving the resolution which, in ita amended form,  appears below. He gave an eloquent address in support, recalling  the pride with which we had sent  so many of our brave boys from  Kelowna, soma ot them old schoolboys,  and a fow native born, ao many of them  never to return. We oould never forget  them, and he felt sure the people would  not lag behind when asked to put up a  lasting memorial to their honor.  Mr. L. V. Rogers, who seconded, sa.c.  while all were in sympathy with the idea  to erect a monument or obelisk he believed if we could hear from the fallen men  themselves, they would wish that the  memorial be something of use to tha generations coming after them. The proposed hall would be a community centre  making proviaion' for the entertainment  and instruction of the boya and girls, an  institution of which tha district waa in  sore need, It would furnish a hall for  conventions and club rooms for the veterana and women'a organizations. He suggested $30,000 aa ��� probable figure which,  J lacing the total wealth of the district at  25,000.000. waa only one-fifth of one per  cant *  tj|Mra.    Telford,    oa    behalf    of    ths  School Trustees of  Okanagan Organize  I.O.D.E., expressed their sympathy  wi.h the plan of a memorial hall,  suggesting that a monument outside  the building would be preferable  to tablets inside.  Mr. J. N Thompson was very  enthusiastic for the proposal. He  said it was up to us to strain every  nerve to make it a worthy memorial. He thought $100,000 was not  too much to aim at, and believed at least  fifty people in the diatrict would give a  thousand dollars each. He suggested that  the subscriptions be spread over ten years  in order  to  raise the  maximum amount  Mr. Roy Sweny also spoke in favor of  a hall in preference to a monument.  Other speakers believed that by including in the plan a monument separate  from the hall the wishes of everybody  would be met. Amongst these was the  ven. Archdeacon Greene.  A letter from Mr. R. A. Pease, however  stated that though he and Mrs. Pease were  willing to subscribe to a monument sacred  to the memory of thoae who had lost their  lives in the war, they did not think people  living away from town ahould be asked  to subscribe to any considerable extent to  build and equip an institution for the  benefit of the townspeople.  Many other suggestions were advanced  such as a memorial archway to the build,  ing, monuments to each battalion, rest  rooms for country people,-See. Aid. Knowles suggested that the monument be erect-  ed in the park, while Mr. Macrendy  thought both the monument and building  should be placed there.  Mrs. Raymer took some objection to the  idea of using such a building for concerts,  operas and public entertainments, as placing it in unfair competition with the new  opera house she was planning to build.  Miss Raymer also thought that the people  should have aome guarantee that its uses  should be confined to those in keeping  with the idea oj a memorial hall-  Questions were asked as to the maintenance of the building after it was built  as this would amount to a considerable  annual sum. It was decided, however, to  leave this to the committee of trustees to  be appointed to manage the scheme. Mr.  Anderson, president of the war veterans,  suggested, however, that if $100,000 was  subscribed for the memorial, there waa no  reason why another $100,000 could not  be collected to invest for the purpose of  providing a maintenance fund.  THE SCHEME  AS  ADOPTED  The resolution aa amended to meet  the various views which had been expressed   was carried  unanimously.     It read:  "That this meeting of the people of Kelowna resolves: That a Memorial Hall be  built to commemorate the action of those  men who enlisted here to serve in the  Great War, and to perpetuate the memory  of the dead, and that tablets inscribed  with their names be placed upon the walls  and a monument erected independent of  the building;  "That for those who have returned a  club room be provided and use of all the  facilities of the building;  "That proviaion be made on the ground  floor for sports and .exercises of the young  people, as would, we think, be the desire  of those who had passed on;  "That a public library and common  room be provided for in the plan;  "That a clock be set up on the Hall  visible to all entering the city;  "That the permanent control of the Hall  be vested in trustees representing every  section of the district from which an ex.  ecutive committee of five be elected;  "That a committee of twenty-five be  now formed consisting of fourteen couqtry  representatives covering Westbank, Glenmore, Ellison, Rutland, Beuvouiin. East  Kelowna and Okanagan Mission (two from  each), and ten from the city, of which at  least two shall be appointed by the  G.W.V.A., and a chairman, with power to  fill any vacancy that may occur on the  commjttee;  "That this committee ahall be empowered to organize a subscription campaign,  purchase the site, construct the building,  and shall publish all their acts."  The following were appointed to represent the city on the committee: Mr. J. W.  Jones, M.L.A., chairman, Mayor D. W.  Sutherland, Mrs. Gaidar, Archdeacon  Greece, Rev. E. D. Braden, Mr. E C. Wed-  dell, and Mr. L. V. Rogers.  Lt. C. C, Allen Among This  Week's Returned Men  Further contingents of returned men  hava been dropping in almost every day  during the past week. On Saturday Corp  F. A. Martin and J. Gauvin were the ar.  rivals. The former left with a draft of the  B.C. Horee and reached France with  machine gun section. Later he waa transferred to the Medical Corps, in which he  achieved distinction entitling him to the  Military Medal.   Gauvin was a 172nd man.  On Monday Lieut. C. C. Allen who. left  Kelowna aa major in command of the  172nd, surprised .his friends by returning  in "civics", thereby avoiding the demon-  stration which would have been made to  welcome him. He waa one of thoae who  reverted Irom higher rank in order to get  to France.  On Tueaday Jack Thompson of Okanagan Mission was received enthusiastically  by a large party of friends, and the aame  boat brought lack White of Rutland, after  four and a half years in khaki. Both were  2nd C.M.R. men.  Today Jas. Miller who enlisted with, the  artillery from Vemon came in, ant) with  him Corp. H. C. lyes.  Some seventeen delegates, representing the various school  board* throughout the Okanagan,  were present in Kelowna last  Thursday at a convention called  for the purpose of organizing the  various tchool trustees of the val-  ley into a separate branch of the  B.C. School Trustees Association.  It waa felt that there were many  problems and difficulties which  affected thia section of the province which did not apply to or  interest the members of the larger  organization. For the sake of  greater convenience it was later  decided to include in the new  branch association all the schools  from Sicamous to the boundary  comprised within the inspectorate  of Mr. Anstey, who was present at  the meeting. Details of organization were taken up immediately  after the arrival of the boat in the  afternoon, Mr. J. A. Bigger, of Kelowna, being elected the first president, Mr. McDonald, Penticton,  vice-president, and Mr. Hamilton  Lang, of Vernon, secretary.  In the evening at 7 30 a general  meeting was held when Dr. Knox  delivered an address on the "Medical Inspection of Schools." pointing out the great advantages to be  derived from a strict system of  regular examination, many physical defects in the young being easily corrected, often leading to the  correction of mental deficiencies  too.  The advisability of adopting a  more uniform system of paying  teachers in schools of similar size  was alao discussed, but was left to  the executive to secure data. The  consolidation of district schoo's  and other matters of interest were  discussed in a manner which would  scarcely have been possible at a  larger convention. The delegates  left by boat the following morning.  ������������-o   Benvoulin Notes  (From oar own oorresnondant).  Mr. and Mrs. Bedford from Vancouver are paying a visit to Mi*. A.  Burrell.

A REPLY TO MR. KERR  To the Editor of  The Kelowna Record.  Dear Sir: 1 have r -nd Mr. Kerr'a  letter in the Record on the aubject  of beer and light wines, and can't  say lhat I have aeen men drunk  on the beverages he mention*. I i  have seen many drunken men and  presumed they imbibed something  beside* tea and cold water. Are  we to infer that thia Moderation  scheme will introduce only beverage* impossible to get drunk on ?  What the temperance friend* want  is a sober community, and if we  had faith in their (the Moderationists) professions���that with thoae  light drinks dissipation would be  a thing of the past, we would accept without heaitation. My experience has been that the temperance people have the good of the  community at heart and are working honeatly and faithfully to  ameliotate the suffering condition  ot mankind, and if it is wrong to  abstain from drink for the sake of  others it is a wrong that will do ua  good and not harm. If I am not  deluded the drinkers or those favorable to the traffic have always  been most vigilant in opposing  every measure that would promote  the cause of temperance.  A prominent missionary said  that hia experience in vineyard*  had taught him that abstinence  waa the only safeguard against the  social evila that arise from the practice of wine drinking.  When Artimua Ward waa touring Europe when hia health failed,  his doctor advised'him not to drink  wine or liquor of any kind. Invariably it is the case in sickness  or an operation that doctors will  advise abstinence.  Mr. Kerr has quite a distaste for  the word'liquor. No uae discussing the question, .lays he, so long  a* prohibitionists insist on using  the word liquor. Mr. Kerr says  unfortunately I talk entirely about  liquor in my letter to the 'Record.  I would like to know what I should  have done. Mr. Kerr did not ask  what good light wines did or beer  with a certain percentage of alcohol, but he asked what good liquor  did, and 1 attempted to answer.  He should have been grateful instead of taking exception to it  and wandering off into light wines,  beer, dancing, cardplaying, theatre-  going, fitc., and insinuating that we  were an unreliable lot. There may  be some bad fellows among us.  Mr. Kerr ahould have answered  my questions and set me right if  he thought me wrong. From Mr,  Martin's letter and the stand taken  by some Presbyterians there must  be a little wrong surely about the  'innocent" drink. Now, if |liquor  has no part or lot in your scheme  why do you mention and discus*  it at your meeting ?  Liquor ia the scourge of the  world. I know they aay the evils  have bet-,: exaggerated. Such is  not the case, for the half has never  | been told. If one gets the reports  of the commissioner* of inland  revenue for all countries, of jails,  penitentiaries and lunatic asylums  everywhere, one will set such a  mass of figures that would beggar  description. It waa Ingeraoll who  said it fills our jails, crowds our  penitentiariea and furnishes the  victim* for the icaffold, The wisest man that ever breathed the  pure air of heaven aaid wine wa*  a mocker, strong drink wa* raging  and whosoever waa'deceived thereby was not wise. I know, young  man, Mr. Kerr would tell you not  to get drunk, and I believe he  would tell you it waa safer to let  the stuff alone,  Thanking you for this space, sir,  Your* truly,  T. S. CORNELL.  MR. KERR AND BEER  To the Editorof  The Kelowna Record.  Dear Sir: In your paper of Mar.  27th, Mr. Kerr asks Mr. Cornell il  he ever knew a man who became  a drunkard by drinking beer. Before that quettion i* answered, I  think the status of a drunkard  ahould be defined. I have heard  it said that a man could nut be  aaid to be drunk so long aa he  could lie on the ground and  hold  (OasrOaaad ea Pan It ���  PAGE TWO  KELOWNA  RECORD  Thursday, April 10.1919  SYNOPSIS OP  OOAL  MINING  REGULATIONS  Coal mining*; rights of tlie Dominion  in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alber-  tu. the Yukon Territory, the Northwest  Territories, ana In portion of the Province of British Columbia may be leased for a term of twenty-one years at  an annual rental of $1 an acre.

Be  that as it may. I have known men  whose gross appearance advertised  to all beholders that they were  beer drinkers. The empurpled  face, the huge proboscis, swollen  out of all proportion, and the whole  person distended out of all natural  appearance, showed them up for  what they were. And even before  they reach this advanced stage, the  fact that they are the slaves of the  alcohol contained in beer is shown  by their inability to enjoy life without it.  That there are drunkards made  by by beer drinking', is a well-  known fact. I have heard men who  were anything but total abstainers  themselves, and who even liked a  glass of beer, declare that the beer  drunkard waa the lowest and most  degraded of the species, and also  lhe most irreclaimable.  Mr. Kerr's assertion lhat home-  made wines contain a greater percentage of alcohol than does beer,  does not mak<: the case any stronger for the latter, it only shows up  the evil in the former, and one  evil in both wine and beer is that  it implants a craving for "liquor "  Again, if the Moderationists have  their way and places are licensed  to sell these lighter drinks, how  are ihey going to be restrained  from selling "liquor" ? The liquor  traffic is a notorious law breaker.  Every possible device is used to  evade laws made to restrain it and  that not only under prohibition but  under license. Sunday selling, selling after hours, selling to minors  and to interdicted persons, and  also on election days, are well  known. Also liquor sold to be  consumed in territory under lhe  Scott Act.  A few years ago I was visiting  in a village in Ontario, situated in  "dry" territory. I was assured lhat  the only trouble they had in enforcing the Act wns sometimes on  a Sunday, when a lot of toughs  from a neighbouring wet village  would come over bringing liquor  with them and would proceed to  raise rows lo make it appear that  liquor was being sold there, i waa  toid shortly after by a resident of  the wet village of an incident that  had occurred there a short time  before. One Sabbath morning they  noticed a rather unusual stir around  a liquor-selling hotel just across the  street from hi: home. Watching  to see what waa going on, ihey  saw a three-seated carriage full of  drinking men headed for the dry  village. In the evening they came  back gloriously drunk. They drove  up to the hotel shouting and cheering. This did not suit mipe host.  He wanted the wet village to be a  model of Sabbalh decorum while  the dry one had been made the  scene of disgraceful brawls. He  tried, without success, to quiet the  mob, and losing patience he called  them fools.  "We are just what  you made us," was the answer, and  he might have added, "that is your  READ THE  Vancouver Daily  Province  Save money by subscribing  or renewing��� Wiih  Crawford & Company  business." When such tactics are  used in the interest of the traffic  what security have we that the  vrine and beer licenae will not be'  used ns a screen for the sale of  liquor?  At a meeting held recently in  Montteal to oppose the efforts of  the Moderationists to nullify the  promised prohibitory law an. American told how the brewers of the  United States had combined with  German enemies to try to upset  the government. He warned Canadians to maintain the high stand"  ard they had been set, otherwise,  "Canada would be made the garbage can of the United States and  all the rag, tag and bobtail of creation will come here. There can  be no compromise with the lawlessness of the liquor traffic." Any  person residing where the boundary line verges on the borders of  a prohibitory state knows the truth  of this.  Mr. Kerr asked at the Moderation meeting "What good does  liquor do )" That is a hard question, for the life of me 1 can see no  good it has ever done. Mr. Kerr  says it is a valuable medium of  ftiendship. The friendship that  has no other medium than liquot  ia not in itself very valuable, and  the good fellowship that requires  an intoxicant to enable it to display  itself is equally valueless. But  conceding that it haa a trifling value in such wavs, just compare that  value with the wrecked homes, the  ruined bodies, and worse still, the  lost souls, and what does that value  amount to ?  I vain I have cudgeled my brains  to find any good that liquor (including beer) has done. In spite  of my best efforts only something  the very opp< site comes into my  mind. I think of the most prosperous village 1 ever was in. From  the first it had been under well-  enforced prohibition. There was  not a shack to be seen, nothing  but neat cottages or more pretentious buildings. But alas I the serpent of the still had its eye on the  place ; a number of shacks were  thrown up and creatures of the  liquor  traffic  were  put  in   them.  Then they caused the Scott Act  to be again submitted to the people and with the minority of the  bona fide residents the Act was  defeated.  E. F. MARTIN.

To ensure careful cooking  it was determined that this was  also to be their supper with whatever extras they chose to bring by  way of additional grub. When the  various haversacks were opened  the scoutmaster understood why  some of them had panted ao in  climbing the steep hill-sides���for  many were the extras.  The spring was reached about  4.30 and after all thirsts were  quenched wood was collet-led, potatoes were peeled, twelve little  fires were laid and were soon  burning brightly, each with its billy  containing the potatoes strung over  the blaze. One r/cout had no billy  and one had forgotten hia potatoes  so one of them could only pass  part of the tests, the one who had  forgotten the potatoss lending the  other his billy so that he could  pass the whole of the tests. All  the others passed both tests and  we only wish that the mothers  could have seen what careful and  ample suppers were prepared. We  ate sure they would feel safe in  occasionally taking a holiday and  turning over the running of their  kitchens for a time to their scouts.  One scout between big alternate  mouthfuls of juicy beef steak from  the end of his fork in one hand,  and a large hunk of bread and butter in the other hand, regaled us  with that touching song: "Oh, this  is the life for me." And it certainly was "some life." For the professors of natural history it was  discovered that the wood-tick is  very fond of young scout. There  was not much grub left by the time  supper was over and after billies  and faces were washed the return  trip was commenced at 6.30 via  the lake shore. Scout Walker going  down a steep hill side and stumbling over a rock, had this original  mot hurled at him: " I thought you  were a gocd walker I" The clubroom was reached shortly after 8.

The  local association haa for some time  been metged into the Kelowna  Club, of which it now forms a  branch. The grounda are being  put into shape, and the remodelled  club house which ia now really  comfortable and attractive will give  an added impetus to the sport.

The regular monthly meeting of  the Kelowna Women'a Institute waa  held in the Domestic Science kitchen on Saturday, April 5th, with 71  members and five visitor, present.  The minutes of the previous meet-  v<ere read and approved. The  secretary reported that a request  had been sent to the Advisory  Board asking for demonstrations  by Mias Hayes; that the rooms  formerly occupied by lhe Red X  had been secured as a permanent  meeting place; lhat the sale of  home cooking and tea had netted  the sum of $61.50, which had been  divided equally between the Hos  pital Aid Society and the Institute;  and that owing to the expense and  amount of work involved in the  Child Welfare exhibit spoken of at  the last meeting, it was not propos-  ed to hold it at the present time.  Mrs. Cartridge next reported on  the interview with the directors of  the A. & T. Association and atated  that the Associatian desired the  Women's Institute to again take  charge of the sections pertaining to  women and children at the Fall  Fair, and the following committee  waa appointed to revise the prize  list: Mesdames Cunningham, Cartridge, Loane, D. Lloydjonts, C  Burtch, Rogers, Barrat, Duggan and  Miaa McFarlane.  The auggeation having been  made thnt. the Institute contribute  one of their Victory Bonda ($50)  to the Wer Memorial fund, a motion was unanimously carried th. t  th:a be done. The following committee wp8 named to have charge  irf a supper to be a"rved to the  Great War Veterana on April 26th:  Mesdames Day, DeHart, Mathison,  Lewia, McDonald, Willita. D. W.  Sutherland, Rowcliffe, Millie and  Cameron.  Miss McFarlane next gave a moat  interesting demonstration on deep  lat frying, having as her assistants  Misses Evelyn Fletcher, Doris  Teague and Pearl Downing. Re-  cipea were given for doughnuts,  pineapple fritters, orange fritters,  fish balls, salmon croquettes and  timbalea, samples of which were  served together with tea. A hearty  vote of thanks was tendered Miaa  McFarlane and her assistants.  ' The membership continues to  grow and new stands at 125. At  the next meeting Mr. W. J. Austin  will lecture on "rose culture" and  Miss Batchelor will demonstrate  the making of scones.  Basketball Proves a  v Popular Pastime  More excitement.. is promised  those whose delight is in basketball, by the announcement of- further matches between the ladies,  two of which are to take place tomorrow night, when Kelowna will  meet Penticton, at the Exhibition  Building, and another on Saturday  afternoon, al two o'clock, when  the Summerland ladies will again  visit out city.  a  On Friday night at the Exhibition Building the Scouts' first team  met a scratch team composed of  members of the K.A.A.C. This  match has been long pending, and  should have taken place long ago.  The scoring was interrupted when  at 40 points to 13, in favor of the  scouts, by a failure of the chalk  supply, and whilst the exact score  is not to hand it can be safely  as  sumed that the scouts won. Too  much attention must not be paid  lo the score, as it waa the first game  the Club boya had play d, and  from what we have aeen of them  at practice there seems no reason  why, with some strict coaching,  thev should not be equal to their  fellow, the Scouts.  a        a  a  Last Saturday the Wolf Cuba*,  commenced, learning .the game,  and by next season should be able  to put a team on the floor. Thia  however, we understand ia not the  desire of the cubmaatere, the aim  being to train the younger boya for  team work when a little older. The  game it a splendid one for .lhe  juniors, assisting greatly in learning them to keep control of their  tempera and stimulate the desire  for clean sport;  Four men were charged Tuesday  with driving automobiles without  lights, and paid fines of varying  amounts.
