NOVEMBER 30. 1956���6 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  ���P  Labor Shortage Is  Discussed By the  Hoard of Trade  Yet Another Kelowna Boy  Loses Life at Front  To Organize District  Farmers' Institutes  Serious   Problems Will Confront District in l9l7-~Impor-  tation of Chinese Offered  as Solution  The shortage of labor, which  was acutely ielt during the past  season, and which promises to  be a still more serious proDlein  next year was the subject ot a  meeting of the. Board of Trade.  The matter was introduced by  some remarks from Mr. li. K.  Bailey who pointed out the  great dihiculty which had been  experienced in finding men ior  the canning, pacaing, and other  industries, and also to perform  the necessary farm work. And  if the, situation had been serious  in 1916, it promised to be far  more so in 1^17,,11 no-steps were  taken to meet it. borne had  suggested reducing the acreage  unaer crop, said Mr. Bailey, but  such an idea was to be condemned. England was looking  more and more to Canada lor  her food supply, and instead of  reducing the acreage every edort  should be made to increase it  and put all possible land under  cultivation. One plan which  had been proposed was -o get  over from the old country and  Belgium a num,ber of "war widows." It was our dutv, said  Mr. Bailey, toisee that such sufferers were provided for and  placed in positions where they  could support themselves ana  their families, but he did not  think it would, be much of a  >v success in the present instance,  ~" though a few families could no  doubt be placed. Another idea  wes the removal of tne order-  in-council prohibiting American  labor from, coming into Canada  and he believed that ii the various Boards of Trade took it up  the ojder inignt be rescinded.  A better plan, however, said  Mr. Bailey, would be the importation of Chinese labor. Sonic  people objected to this, but beggars could not be choosers." He  believed such a course was necessary in order to bring the  areas of vacant land in the district into productive condition.  It, was the only way. in whichwe  could be assured of sufficient  help to 1 carry, on the various agricultural operations.  In the discussion which follow  ed the seriousness of the nrob-  lem was fully realized, but very  little progress was made toward a solution of the difficulty  Fears were expressed by some  of the danger of' introducing  large numbers of Orientals into  the-district, in that they might  be difficult to get rid of again,a  fact which might prove embarrassing when the boys who had  enlisted returned from the front  looking for work.  the use of motor transport  hauling, and other mechanical  labor-saving devices 1 waa advo-  oated, while Mr. F. W. Groves  suggested the systematic organi  zation of all residents, as was  being done in the old country  munition factories. The school  holidays might also be altered  so that the children could pick  fruit.  It* was finally decided to appoint a committee, consisting oi  Messrs. B. R. Bailey, F. W. Gro  ves, and John Casorso, to bring  the matter before the Farmers'  Institute conference next Tuesday.  A discussion on the gradual  encroachments of Asiatics in  the district .was left over until  next meeting. In this connection, however, Mr. R. B. Kerr  delivered a vigorouswarning of  the danger of any attempts upon the Japs or to turn them  out. r Such a course would inevitably lead to trouble between  the two countries and probably  war.

Conferences of these  District Institutes will be held  at . certain periods of the year,  and will no doubt relieve the  annual meeting of thc Central  Institute of much work. of pure-  as ly local interest.  At ��� the last Central Institute  meeting, Mr. L. E. Taylor, who  was a delegate from Kelowna,  urged very strongly for the appointment of an advisory board  as provided in the Farmers' Institute Act, and it is due to the  street.  Lieut.-Col.

W ,  Mr. R. A. Pease wrate pointing out the need of addition tl  ferry service , a third trip being added to the present schedule ini order (to connect with  the s.s. Sicamous in the afternoon. Passengers arriving by  boat from, the north frequently  had to stay over night in Kelowna. The matter was referred to the TransportatsiohCoiu-  mittee.  The letter brought up the eld  question oi a free feery andthere  was a good deal | of discussion  on this point. A resolution to  appoint a committee to push  the matter again was defeated,  an amendment being pissed  that the government be approached for an increased subsidy with a'view to obtaining a  lower tariff.  Mr. 1 M. Hereron drew attention to certain work which -was  needed,on the Vernon road. In  view'of the fact that the estimates were now being (prepared,  he suggested that the government be asked to cut down tbe  grade of two hills at Ellison,  near the Geen and Orcliard  ranches. The presence of these  hills had the effect of cutting  down to less than half the pos-  sible'load which could be hauled  from that district. There was  also a stretch of road through  the Lefevre estate which was  very bad. It was decidedto call  attention to these matters.  The executive committee were  instructed to again urge the  change bi schedule an the Kettle  Valley Railway Un order to connect with the morning boat up  from Penticton, thus avoiding  a delay there of nearly twenty-  four hours in the journey from  the coast. % reduction of express rates over the K. V. R.  was also'asked for.  Mr. P. DuMoulin suggested  calling the attention of the C.  P. R. .to the bad condition of  the wharf. The boards were  much worn and were moreover  laid crosswise, so that when  trucks of fruit were moved over  them the boxes would be jogged  up and down several inches..  This rough handling was very  injurious. There was no reason  why the wharf should not be  covered   with   boards   running  ugthwise, which would obviate  Agricultural Assn. Has  Successful Year  Has Made Progress in Bettering Financial Position  The annual general meeting of  the Kelowna Agricultural Association held last Saturday after  noon revealed the fact that,due  to ,a determined effort on the  part of the directors during the  past year, the outstanding debts  ofthe Association, with the exception of some arrears of prize  money for 1915 and prior, and  a loan of $400, had been cleared  off, and that there was now no  debt upon the exhibition building, All the prize money and  liabilities in connection with  the 1916 fair had been paid in-  full, with a small balance to the |  good.  In the absence of Mr. J.*'L.  Pridham, president for the year,  Mr. R. A. Copeland took charge  of the meeting. In his report  he inentioned the unfortunate  loss which the Association had  sustained during the year in the  death of two ol its directors, H:  W. Raymer and C. C. Prowse.

Sf  I  First Lord of the Admiralty,  Hon. Arthur Balfour told the Commons yesterday, that Sir John  Jellicoe had been appointed first  sea lord, and Admiral David  Beatty given command of the grand  fleet, and Sir Henry Jackson, the  retiring sea lord, made admiral and  president of Greenwich Navel  College. Mr. Balfour also stated  that a general shake-up in fleet  commanders was scheduled.  arranged, and they had been  paid off. The arrears of prize  money were still outstanding,  and he hoped the incoming directors would try to straighten  that out. Many of the farmers  had kindly offered to donate the  prize money, and he felt sure  that practically all would do  the same if the position was  properly represented to them,  and the society would then be  ~ ble to start again with a clear  sheet.  On behalf of the directors he  thanked the ladles of the Women's Institute for their assistance during the fair, and also  the Press and business men for  their donations. The whole of  the prizes for the sports had  been given by the business men.  There was considerable discussion regarding the unpaid prize  money, and it was felt that if all  those to whom it was due would  give an understanding that they  would forego their claims, the Society would be relieved of a burden of debt which it was impossible ever to pay, and could make  a clean start. It was decided to  recommend to the incoming directors that definite steps be taken  with this end in view.

At a convention ;>t; Penticton  last week of newspaper publishers  a Southern British Columbia branch  of the Canadian Press Association  was formed. Representatives were  present from Salmon Arm.Vemon  Enderby, Kelowna, Summerland,  Penticton, Grand Forks, Nelson  and Trail.  < ral changes in the constitution  and by-laws, mentioned in a previous issue, and for the purpose of  putting these changes into effect  a meeting was called for Saturday,  December 9th. As one of these  changes affected the election of  directors,*reducing their number,  it was decided to adjourn the present annual meeting until the same  date and immediately following  the special meeting. (In an advertisement in this issue the date  of this meeting is wrongly given as  December 2nd���it should be December 9th.)  The death of Mr. H. W. Raymer  having left a vacancy on the board  of trustees, Mr. J. Bowes was elected to that position.  vear they intend to again save  five acres of the crop for this  purpose.  Mr. Miller reports that the  alfalfa seed harvested this year  in the valley is a fine sample,  and believes that the acclimatized seed raised here must nave  a much higher germinating  power than that which is imported. He recommends that  with both allfalfa and red .clover  the crop should be pastured for  one month in the spring and  then grown to maturity with as  little irrigation a possible  The crop should be ripe and cnt  in August. Three hundred  pounds of seed per acre is considered a reasonable crop to expect.  Announcement of Pruning  Schools  Since the Department first  inaugurated the Pruning School  system, in January of 1914, a total  of 80 such schools have been conducted; over 800 people have attended them lor instruction. In that  timer there has been coincidently, a  marked improvement in pruning  methods resulting in better trcs,  and more and better fruit. The  pruning schools have enabled very  many growers to do their own  pruning, and many othermen have  been enabled to take up remunerative winter employment as primers.  The demand continues, and the  Department has decided, theiefore,  to offer these schools again.  The Department of Agriculture  will provide a competent instructor, and pay his expenses. The local  administration 1 f he pruning  schools will be placed in the handt  of a responsible local body, such  as the Farmers' Institute, the Fruit  Growers' Assn., or the Board of  Trade, who will be responsible for  the guarantee of a minimum of 8  pupils, (but not more than twelve),  v. ith the proper qualifications, at a  fee of one dollar each, to take tin  lessons of three hours a lesson, the  school extending over five days.  Where the number of pupils in a  dis'iict justifies, two pruning  schools may be arranged for, in  which the minimuii. guarantee will  be sixteen pupils, and not over 24,  The local organization will also  provide an orchard or orchards,  where the instructor may hold the  pruning clases, and a hall or room  in which the lectures may be held,  The pupils will provide their owru  prunirg tools, the necessary toils  being a pair of pruning sheair, a  saw, and a pocket wht Islone. A  pruning pole and a light ladder  may also be necessary for large  trees.  The instruction will consist, as in  previous years, largely of actual  pruningby the pupils in the orchard  under the instructor's supri vision.  As previously, the intructora will  advise the use of methods adapted  to the needs nf the district. Pruning methods vary more or less and  always will vary, not only as to  variety, age, and vigour of the tree,  but also to the control of scab, fire  blight, fruit pit and other diseases,  winter injury, soil moisure, and  futility etc. In conjunction wilh this  practical work, there will be discussions on the general principles  and theory of pruning.  Application forma can be procured from the secretary of tha  local institute Mr. R. L. Dalglish.

English, .Hid  soil and crop instructor, points  out that in British Columbia  thu farmers import thousands of  dollars worth of seed every year  from other countries.  "Fanners do not seem to realize as yet," writes Mr. Ktit.Ush  "that they are losing mono.'  each year that uh\ plant Ifli;  ported seed in preference lo the  hoine-grown acolimaci/xd seed.  Consequently the demand lor  home-grown acclimatized wtd  is small, and seed merchants cU>  nut trouble to stock it.  "Another reason for lhe lack  uf demand for home-grown seed  .is that few fanners know i.ist  who the seed growers ,u��- in the  pruvineu. Thus wll'lio SOine [aimers might have wished lu secure this acclimat'u t seed th''.'  did not know wtiieli ��.ty io turn  to obtain the same.

The provincial Seed Fairs will  he held at Armstrong and New  Westminster this year, the fair  at Armstrong on December 7th  and 8th, and at New Westminster on December 141.I1 and 15th.  All who can should attend one  of these fairs and see just v. liat  this province can do in the wav  of producing seed whieh ilp to  the present has been purchased  to a groat extent in .vis.ern  Canada and the United States.

When the potatoes were peeled  and soaked for ssvei'al houes before boiling, the losa amounted to  52 per cent of the total nitrogenous matter and 38per of the mineral substance; when the potatoes  were peeled and put into cold  water, which was then brought to  the boiling point as soon as possible, the loss amounted to abou  16 per cent of the nitrogenous  mitter or portien and 19 pel cent  of the mineral matter ; potatoes  peeled and placed at once into  boiling water lost only about 8 pel  cent of the nitrogenous matter, although the loss of mineral matter  was about the same as in the pre-  ceeding case; when, however,  potatoes were cooked with the  skins on, there was but a trifling  loss of matter, either nitrogenous  or mineral. In the baking of potatoes there is practically no !o:.s  other than the very little which  may escape in the moisture given  off.  lo obtain the highest food value,  potatoes should not be peeled.  When peeled, there is least loss by  putting directly into hot water and  boiling quickly. Even then the  loss is considerable. When potatoes are peeled and soaked in  old water the loss is very great.  It has also been that cosiderable  lobies occur in the boiling of othei  vegetables such as carrots, beets  and parsnips. "I he loss in the mineral matter is serious, as vegetables furnish mineral materials  from which teeth and bone are  formed.     Vegetables should      be  > 1 din large pieces and in as  small a quantity of water as possible.  To prevent the serious loss  which occurs when the water in  which vegetables have been boiled  is thrown out, the water should be  boiled down and use in the  making of the fauces whic are to  be served with the vegetables.  -F.C.N.  Fire Precautions for the  Cold Weather  The fact that the returns made  to the Department of Insurance for  this Province for the half year ending June 30tfi, 1916, show that 49  fires were traced to insufficiently  protected furnaces, stoves or pipes,  causing a loss of $42,070, while 39  fires with a loss of $31,801 were  due to defective chimneys and fireplaces, and 7 fires with a loss of  $3,513 Aiere due to firewood being  left too near stoves, shows how  necessary it is that the careful  householder or merchant should  make preparation for the cold  weather, when furnaces and stoves  are more constantly in use and  good fires are kept up, by seeing  that his stove and furnace and  pipe are all in good order, and that  all floors and woodwork near them  are protected against any chance  of ignition by hot embers or overheating, and that paper and other  combustible rubbish is removed  from basements, and a proper  place is provided for firewood as  well as for the ashes, which should  never be thrown against wooden  partitions or fences or placed in  wooden barrels or boxes. The removal of rubbish, paper, chips,  cardbord boxes, and so forth, is  important, as a match carelessly  dropped or a hot coal raked out  from the furnace will set these on  fire and they help to spread fire  rapidly.  The rates of postage for soldiers'  parcels going to England or to the  front are as follows: To England,  the rate is 12 cents a pound or any  fraction thereof Limit weight on  parcels to England is 11 lbs. To  France or Belgium the rate is 24  cento for parcels any weight up to  thiee pounds; from three pounds  to seven pounds(the limit), the rate  ia 32 cents, not 32 cents per pound,  but 32 cents for any weight from 3  to 7 pounds. Any letter or parcel  for any soldier in a hospital (even  if the hospital is not known to the  sender), having thc word "hospital"  marked across it, will be delivered.  A customs declaration must be attached to each parcel, for which  application should be made at the  postoffice.

Altogether the Indian  population has shown a gratifying spirit of loyalty as shown  bv thc report of the Indian de-  partment.just published.

Trenwltk  The military situation in Roumania is improving for the Roumanians, according to a despatch  received by the Wireless Press  from Bucharest by way of Rome.  Field Marshal von Maclcenson is  said to be making no material  progress, lhe Roumanians retreat,  it is added, is proeeding in perfect  order on a settled front.  Military critics cling staunchly to  tbe hope that the Roumanians  will be able to avoid defeat and  bring the invaders to a halt. It is  remarked that the Roumanians, although still retreating, preserve an  unbroken front except at one non-  vital point, while the very moderate German claims regarding  prisoner, guns and booty are surprising, in view of the rapidity of  their advance.
