Array KetoUma fteonft  VOL XL. NO. 23  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY. APRIL 24, 1919.���4 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Civic Estimates Are  Cut to Minimum  Expenditure Confined to Bare  Running Costs and Debt  Payments  The city council meeting of Monday was largely occupied with the  consideration of the estimates of  revenue and expenditure for the  current year submitted by the  heads of the various departments.  Judging by ths figures presented,  it was evident that strenuous efforts  had been made to cut expenses  down to the lowest point, and to  keep as far as possible to the unavoidable fixed charges, and payments on debenture debts.  The Light and Water atatement  as presented by chairman Aid.  Duggan, showed an estimated revenue of 1)139,000. This would provide for a surplus of $1,503.3 after  meeting all expenditures, chief of  which were $12,000 tor fuel,  $12,121.87 dedenture charges, and  $12,500 for salaties, wages, and  stationery. In addition a capital  expenditure of $1,250 for light and  water extensions would be necessary.  Aid. Mantle, on behalf of the  Public Works committee, required  $9,909.94. This was made up as  follows: Street maintenance, $2260;  street watering (excess over revenue of $680), $320; sidewalk  maintenance, $1,455; street lighting, $1,750; labor, $1,320; work-  men's in��urance,$50; contingencies,  $500 ; and debenture expense,  $2,245.94.  The Health committee called for  $7,521.18 debenture expense, and  other expenses, $4,575, which deducting revenue from scavenging  fees, $1,475, left a deficit to be  raised of $10,621.18.  The total outlay for Fire Protection and Buildings, as estimated by  Aid. Meikle, amounted to $3,562.70  including fire hall maintenance,  $50, heating and lighting, $160,  fire truck operating and maintenance, $400; firemen's wages, $ 1125;  insurance, $500; delegate's expenses to fire chiefs' convention, $150;  building inspector, $60; sundries,  $200 ; clothing and equipment,  $255 ; and debenture expense,  $662.70.  An outlay of $3,250 on Parks  and Boulevards was provided for,  added to which was $3,352.26 for  debenture expense.  The Finance committee reserved  its estimates until the next meeting.  A by-law fixing the date of the  tax sale, now compulsory every  year, for the 1st September, was  submitted and read.  Tenders for street watering were  received from Dillon & Son for 75c  per hour, andJW. Blackwood at 65c  per hour, the contract being awarded to the latter.  The secretary of the Union of  B. C. Municipalities advised that  it had been found impouible to  have the new Municipal Act ready  in time for enactment at the recent  session of the legislature, and that  full consideration would be allowed at the next annual convention  at North Vancouver. The government had also promised to have  the redraft of the Act in the hands  of municipalities in time to permit  the fullest discussion of the various  clauses so that their representatives  could be instructed how to act at  the convention.  The Light committee was authorized tb purchase new poles as a  number of the old ones would  have to be replaced at an early  date.  The followang reaolution was  passed: "That the Kelowns City  Council favor the principle that returned soldiers be given the preference in the matter of municipal  and provincial appointments, provided qualifications are equal."  Aid. Mantle, who, at the request  of the council had inaugurated the  fund for the Soldiers' Memorial,  made a formal report regarding  the public meeting which had been  held,and the committee which now  had charge of the matter. It was  stated that Mr. J W. Jones, chair  man of the committee, had inter  viewed several of the nominees  for the districts surrounding Kel  owna, and vJas of opinion thst all  the committee would be appointed  by the end of the month. It v  thsn the intention to commence an  active canvass for money to carry  Veterans Parade to  (Large  Gathering   Present to  Hear Capt. Whittaker  Knox Church was scarcely large  enough to accommodate the crowd  which attended the aervice held  laat Sunday evening to commemorate the two moat glorioua events in  the annals of the Canadians in the  Great War, Vimy Ridge and the  aecond battle of Yprei. The atory  of theae two great fights waa  graphically told by Capt. (Rev.)  C. W. Whittaker, president of the  Great War Veterans of B.C.. who  had travelled from the coast to  conduct the aervice. Capt. Whittaker himself is a typical specimen  of the men who made the name of  Canada famous even among the  seasoned troops of the older countries. Enlisting aa a private he  won distinction and a commission  in the fighting line before talcing  up the work of Chaplain, and now  he is back in B.C. he ia equally  energetic in his defence of the  rights of the returned men.  The local Veterans, to the number of 60 paraded to the church  from the clubrooms under the  leadership of Col. Belson, a Hamilton officer who has lately come to  reside in Kelowna. Special music  was rendered by the choir under the Ieed.  ship of Mr. Tod Boyd, Mr. Drury Pryce  giving ��� violin solo. From the success  which attended the service, it will no doubt  be made an annuel event.  Capt. Whittaker gave a forceful and inspiring address, paying an eloquent tribute'  to the courage, cheerfulness aad self-see-  rifice of the men who had gone irom the  Dominion to fight in the great cause of  liberty.  On Saturday evening Capt. Whittaker  attended a specie! meeting of the Kelowna  Veterans, whom he complimented on  their large and growing membership. The  Association throughout the Dominion, he  said, was increasing at the rate of 4000 a  week, and was becoming a powerful force  in political life. He dealt at some length  with affairs in the province, ���trongly condemning the policy of the B.C. government  in giving all tha good appointments to  party heelers, and allowing returned men  only the second and third rate positions.  In the ranks of the returned soldiers could  be found men capable of holding any Job  in the country. . The case of Mayor Gale  of Vancouver and his appointment over  the heads of soldier applicants to the position of chairman of the Industrial Com-  mission, he said, waa the climax to a  aeries of injustices.  Mayor Sutherland, and Mr. J. W, Jones,  M.P.P., also spoke.  A supper provided by the Ladies' Aid  of Knox Church brought the evening to a  close.  Baseball Team Pays  Visit to Penticton  The Kelowna baseball club  journeyed down to Penticton last  Friday to meet that team in the  first bsll game of the season. It  was a close game from start to finish, Kelowna leading by four to two  until the seventh innings, when  Penticton made four runs. This  put the Kelowna boys on their  mettle again and by the end of the  ninth they had pulled even again.  Penticton had the last bst, and  fought hard for the winning run,  which they managed to score at  last with two men down.  The Kelowna line-up consisted  ot Thayer, Fleming, Kincaid, Patterson, Morrison, DeHart, Carney,  Gaddea, Anderson.  A return game is to be played  in the City Park next Thuraday and  promises some good sport.  Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Jawsey of  Ottawa are visitors this week looking over their property here.  out the projects decided upon at  the public meeting.  Aid Knowles presented the foi  lowing estimates prepared by the  city foreman for the construction of  the suggested bicycle paths along  the principal streets: From Bernard ave. to the Growers! Exchange  on Water at., $100; on Bernard  ave. to the Presbyterian Church.  $100; and from Bernard ave. to the  Hospital on Pendozi St., $350. It  was decided, after some discussion  not to take any action at present.  It waa arranged that provision be  made for a grant to the Fire Brig-  when the finance estimates were  presented.  Okanagan  Hold First  Discuss the Various Problems  Affecting Profession  The teachera of the Okanagan  Valley met in conference at Vernon on Friday and Saturday of  last week., The conference, which  was the outcome of a preliminary  organization meeting held at Penticton early in March, was held in  the Courthouse, and no fewer than  fifty teachers thought it worth their  while to give up two days of their  holidays for the discussion of problems relating to their profession.  The afternoon of Friday was devoted to business. In the evening  the nominatt" 3 committee reported, and on their recommendation  the following office bearers were  appointed: President, J. Gordon,  Kelowns; first vice-president, B,  S. Freeman, Armstrong; second  vice-president, C. Fulton, Vernon;  corresponding secretary, A. S.  Matheson, Penticton; recording  secretary, Miss M. E. Brown, Summerland ; treasurer, L. V. Rogers,  Kelowna.  In order to equalize the burden  of travelling expenses to and from  the place of meeting, it was decided lhat all such expenses should  be pooled, and an average found  by dividing the total by the number attending, this average being  the amount each had to pay. A  further resolution was to the effect  that the association should take  steps to link up with the B. C Federation if it could br arranged satisfactorily.  Mr. B. S. Freeman addressed the  convention on "Rural School Problems." He made an able contribution to the aubject. and the desire  was expressed that the address  should be published. He pleaded  for better equipment for both work  and play in country schools, and  emphasized the need for team  work as a remedy for the curse, of  farming communities���individualism. He argued for the special  training of rural school teachers.  He deplored the fact that young  girls, after a short training, were  consistently thrust upon the rural  schools, confronted with situations  they had no training for or experience to cope with.  In the discussion which followed  it became clear that in the experience of the teachers one of the  chief difficulties waa that of accommodation. The living conditions  were ao deplorable in man> cases  that the teacher simply could not  remain for longer than one term.  The matter of salaries was also  discussed. The opinion of the  teachers was that increased salaries  would mean increased efficiency ;  for the discontent at present existing was destroying the enthusiasm  and spirit of the teachers. It was  contended that the efficient and  worthy teachers should receive  salaries in keeping with their position and influence so thst that they  might avoid an old age of poverty  after they had given their strength  to the state.  Among other subjects discussed  at the conference were: the extension of the normal course to  two yesrs; the increase of government grants in proportion to the  increase of salaries by trustees;  regulations regarding sickness,  leave of absence and pavment of  substitutes; and the increaae by  the government of the sslaries ol  assisted school teachets.  This first conference of the Okanagan teachers was a distinct  success. The elevated tone of the  discussions was a marked feature,  and the harmonious nature of the  gathering augured well for the success of the next convention to be  held in Vernon early in the fall.  Rev. W. Arnold Bennett will conduct aervice and preach in the  Baptist church next Sunday, in  the morning his topic will be "The  Words of Jesus, and their Significance in these Daya." The evening aubject will be "Water from  the Smitten Rock." .  Prmier Oliver has declined to  secede to the wishes of the return-  en tien who demanded the resignation of the government in their  indignaiion over the Mayor Gale  appointment.  Rutland News  aassat,  Police Make Big Haul Aquatic Association  At the meeting of the Girls' Enterprise Club < n Tueaday it was  decided to giv the sum of $40 to  the Rutland Memorial Fund. They  also agreed to assist in soliciting  subscriptions, and will probably  start their campaign next week.  Miss Morrison,  teacher  of   the  primary room left Friday for her'  home  in  Peachland to spend the  Easter holidays. Miss Bruce is also  at Peachland for a tew days.  A football match between Rutland and Ellison took place last  Monday in the school grounds, the  Rutlanders winning by 2 to 0. It  was a cloae game throughout, the  home team, however having some  advantage in weight. A return  match will probably be played on  Saturday week.  At a public meeting Monday  evening in the schoolhouse Rutland  decided to go ahead with a separate War Memorial for the district,  the following resolution being  passed: " That a Memorial be  erected in the Rutland school  ground in memory of the boys who  left this districi to serve in the  Great War, and that a subscription  list be opened ; that the Kelowna  committee be also requested to  solicit subscriptions from the Rutland as it was felt that many might  wish to subscribe to both."  The feeling was expressed that  as many of the boya who had  volunteered had been pupils in the  achool, a memorial merged with  that of Kelowna would be meaningless to future generations of  scholars as it would be very seldom  of Crude Opium  Chinaman Took $300 Worth  From Local Post Office  Random Remarks  By the Chiel  "A chiel'a unang ye takii.' note* and felh, he'll  pie** them."���Bum a.  Newspaper advertisments are to me,  sometimes instructive and always amusing.  Recently 1 saw one which at firat tight  was rather startling, as it announced "Genuine Scotch Oatmeals in colors of cream,  tan, buff, blue, green" etc. As 1 have been  addicted to the oatmeal habit all my life  I was at first rather bewildered. Having at  no time in the course of a fairly long life  encountered the blue or green varieties, I  was afraid I had somehow missed something. Reading on revealed the fact that  this description did not apply to the food  of that name but to a particular kind of  wall decoration, and my mind returned to  normal.  The moral of the above remark is obvious. When reading advertisements, read  on to the end, io that profit and pleasure  may accrue. Further, you do not get  your full pennv worth if you don't read  the ads. when perusing your paper, so my  advice is���read the advertisements.  The Memorial service at Knox  Church  last Sunday evening was a very impressive  and striking occasion.   The large turn out  of the people is an indication of just how  deep is the public feeling and interest in  the Great Game,  which  Capt.  Whittaker  so proudly, and so emphatically   declared  our boys played "over there."   It  would  be nice if one of the effects of the meeting  was the lessening of differences of opinion  as to just what form   the  War  Memorial  should take.    More spontaneity of purpose  so to speak.  a       e  a  1 cannot dismiss the subject of G.W.V.A.  first annual church parade without saving  how pleased I was at the large turn out,  and would like further to remark that the  officer conducting the service is a great  little man. His manner and bearing, language and sentiment, fully bore out the  pastor s statement that he was "a food  private,* good office r. and a good chaplain."  a        a  a  1 hear that the Athletic dance was a  howling success���I use the adjective in a  metaphorical sense���both socially and  financially, which is a very gratifying result  indeed- I understand that great efforta  were made to have it so, it being a case of  a "long pull, a strong pull, and a pull  altogether," an appropriate method for an  athletic bunch to uae. I hope they will  get their ground into good shape and have  a fine season's sport.  Cannot something definite be done about  the Easter Monday holiday? There waa  a kind of semi-heUday feeling all day  Monday and some stores were closed. It  is to be hoped that before the season comes  tound again, some really unanimous ar*  rangement will be made.  ^  1 am in complete accord with the writer  of the letter on thia subject, which appeared in the last issue of the Record, as to  the advisability of holding the day as a  holiday, but can not congratulate him on  some of the terms useof to express his  views.  1 want'to divulge a great secret, and,  being a secret, of course do not want it  mentioned.

A valuable consignment of opium  tent from Montreal to Kelowna fell  into tke hands of the provincial  police last week, and resulted more-  ovet in the consignee being heavily  fined for having the drug in his  possession. Constable Graham,  having received information that  the opium would be arriving in  Kelowna, kept a close watch on  the Post Office. Last Tuesday  week Quon Lee Yuen a well-known  local Chinese merchant, was seen  to get the parcel, and he was immediately pounced upon. When  questioned as to what the parcel  contained he "savvied" nothing,  When it was opened, however, it  was found to hold about 3?/ lbs. of  crude opium, which, at the current  price of five dollars an ounce made  the lot worth about $300. Quong  was arrested and charged but for  lack of an interpreter, the case was  remanded until yesterday.  The defence put forward wns  that the parcel was addressed not  to Quong Lee Yuen but to M Jim,  C.o. defender,.*, who knew nothing  of M. Jim of who the opium was  intended for. This story Magistrate  Weddell characterized as altogether too mmay coming from such an  experienced Chinaman as Quong,  and administered a fine of $200  and costs.  Mr. Burne gave notice that the  case would be appealed.  Easier Standing of  High School Pupils  Instead of giving the actual marks  the standing obtained at the examinationa by the pupils of each year  is shown by the following classification : ���  Class I���80 per cent, or over;  Class 2���65 per cent, or over but  under 80 per cent;  Class 3���50 per cent, or over but  under 65 per cent.;  Class 4���under 50 per cent.  All promotions in the high school  are based on the recommendations  of the teachers. Students in class  four will have to improve their  standing considerably before and  at the mid-summer test or they  cannot in justice to themselves be  promoted to the next year's work.  These examinations are only a  guide to the teachers, the real basis  of promotion being the work done  and the effort shown throughout  the entire school year. Students  wishing Junior Matriculation or  1 hird-Ctass Non-Piofessional certificates must, of course, wiite the  June Departm-ntal examinations.

Starts Season Friday  Naval Veteran Foote To Have  Position of Inst uctor  The Aquatic aeason will open on  Friday, May 2nd, with the annual  meeting of membera at 10 a.m. in  the Board of Trade building and a'  free public dance in the pavilion  in the evening.  President Crawford and the directors anticipate a record summer  judging by the advance enquiries.  Aquatic sports and open-air dances  have always held a very warm  place in the regard uf Kelowna  citizens but during the war the absence of our young men and the  numerous forms of war work thinned the ranks of sportsmen ond  women.  The return of Mr. Foote to his  old post of instructor will be hailed  with delight by all young people  and bring a great feeling of relief  to anxious fathers and mothers. The  day after war was declared he left  Kelowna and returned to the navy  and has served on Admiral Beatiy's  flagship, first the "Lion" and then  the "Queen Elizabeth" where he  witnessed the surrender of the  German fleet. He will, surely be  warmly welcomed on his return to  uphold the high standard of physical fitness which he established  at the pavilicn in the old days.  Mrs. Foote will also be well remembered by all Aquatic members when as Miss H"garth, she  was the foremost lady exponent of  high diving, swimming and rowing.  She will be just as heartily welcomed at the pavilion apnin.  With (he increasing popularity  of open air dancing it will probably soon be r.eccssarv for the directors to find some means i f increasing the floor space for that purpose.  lt is inexpensive, healthy and convenient for all. Perhaps some  means may be found for adapting  the large floor space in the grand  atand for both purposes on big  occasions, as it now stands idle for  all but one day in the year.  Intending members will find the  Secretary, Mr. H. G. M Wilson at  the office of the Association in the  block next door to the post office,  where he will furnish any information required.  Lt. Col. Moody is  Back From France  Lt. Col. Moody, D.S.O, was a  notable srrival amongst the returned men last Saturday. Col. Moody,  who, before going overseas, was in  Kelowna as manager of Ihe Canyon Creek Irrigation Co., was one  of the local R.'M.R. men called up  for service at the outbreak of the  war. He has served with great  distinction in command of a railway battalion with the first line  troops, probably one of the most  difficult and dangerous tasks of  the war. He went down the lake  Saturday to Penticton, but spent  Monday in Kelowna accompanied  by Mrs. Moody.  Commander H. W. Lillingston,  R.N., who has been aeiving under  the Admiralty in charge of the  wireless station at Ascension, came  in by car Thursday.  Capt. and Mrs. Woodmas, of S.  Okanagan, arrived on Friday.  On 1 uesday Claude Osterbauer,  of Rutland, who has been with  the Foresters in France, came in.  Yesterday the arrivals were  Cecil Rutherford, with Mrs. Rutherford, and Wallace Hill.  Dr. J. W.

Small  Phone 259  Plastering  BY   SKILLED  WORKMEN  J. ROSSI  P.O.Box no  St. Paul Street    Kelowna  In Monday's Province a reference is made to the correspondence  which has been going on for some  lime in the Record regarding the  form of the local War Memorial.  Aa the remarks made upon the subject are so appropriate and many  may not have seen them we reprint  them here. The Province has to  say :���  A correspondent ofthe Kelowna  Record, writing in reference to the  memorial to fallen heroes which it  is proposed to erect in lhat city, in  of opinion that "no rneiely utilitarian scheme is n fit way to perpetuate or honor the memory ol 'brave  men and worthy patriots, dear to  God and famous to all ages.'" He  further remarks, "It is as if one who  were in need of a woodshed or a  henhouse should erect such a convenience in memory of a defunct  relative, rather than spend his  money on a tomb-stone." This  writer evidently is of opinion that  this is such a utilitarian age thai it  is salutarv and necessary to say  something to counteract the tendency, Now-a-days we break but few  alabaster boxes of ointment "that  might be sold for three hundred  pence and given to the pool." It  is noteworthy that the suggestion  as to the waste of that historic receptacle and its contents, was  judas, who "had the bag." Treasurers and financial magnates generally are averse to any expenditure that is not likely to make any  pecuniary return. it has been  noticeable in regard to many quasi-  charitable .(foils that have been  made during the years of the war,  that this principle was to some ex-  tentrecognized. People were asked to give, but they were to have  something in return. I.l their private profit and loss accounts ihey  might reckon that against the sum  pa'd for tickets could be set the  hour or two's entertainment they  received. 1 his would sutisfy the  debtor and creditor instinct which  needs no en* ouragement to grow  in the human brca-t.  An elevated idea of public r i.izen-  ��� tiip and patriotism cal's for some  memorial to those who protected  us from the Hun. and this teeling  is commend-ibly expressing itself  all over the North Ameiicrn Continent. In New York an association which acts in an advisory capacity with regard to artistic development in the streets and monuments,  the Municipal Art Society of New  York Citv, has issued an illustrative  pamphlet of suggestions, and des  captions of existing memorials. In  various American cities committees  are at work, the members of which  are anxious lhat their localities  shall not be wanting in their demonstrations of grateful memory.  In Regina, as already mentioned in  The Province, a war memorial  museam is to be erected, the pri-  maiy purpose of which is that of a  memorial to the men of Saskatchewan who fell in the Great War.  Its secondary purpose is to contain  the collection of war trophies and  records ot the province, and the  natural history and scientific collections of Saskatchewan. Thus while  about 7000 square feet of floor  space are to be devoted to the war  memorial proper, only about 5000  square feet are to be used for the  other collections. The Saskatchewan Government is to erect this  building at a cost of $400,000.  Provision for a group of atatuary  is to be made in front of the edifice  but the cost of this is not included  in the above sum.  Saskatchewan thus leads the way  In a memorial which will combine  what Ruskin calls the "lamp of  sacrifice," with the utilitarian. It  indicates that while it is well that  the finest specimens of its fauna  and flora shall find a place in halls  of observation, it is better still that  examples of its worthiest manhood  shall be commemorated by tablets  of enduring bronze, and memorials  that shall be the work of artistic  genius.

To the Editor of  Tlie Kelowna Record.  Dear Sir,���In your issue ofthe 17thinst.,  Mr. Kerr claima that no temperance movement hai amen in any Christian country  wSere only wine and beer are used. Will  Mr. Kerr tell us where that country may  be found? Me cites cases where good  people have countenanced the use of beer  and wine. That only goes to show that  good people aie liable to make mistakes,  and 1 ain afraid that the Puritans did not  discourage the use of stronger drinks. 1  have read that in their times the last man  tu go under the table at a banquet was  counted the better man. Is Mr. Kerr an  idmirer of the Germans and their deeds,  that he quotes them at evidence in favor  of beer drinking? He speaks of the  French claim that wine is an antidote to  the taste for strong drink, and that the wine  making countries are the soberest in the  world. 1 have been very differently informed, hi conversation with a person  who had travelled in the wine making  parts of France, I was told that ihis idea  was entirely wrong, on the contrary drunk-  ness was very prevalent there even among  those who drank nothing but wine, and  that those drinks-are no preventive of an appetite for stronger drinks, is wellproven by  the fact that atthe beginning of the war the  French government waB forced to prohibit  the deadly absinthe. I have not the least  doubt that the French honestly believe  their own claims in regard to the virtues  of their product. There are nrne so blind  as they who wont see.  1 once heard a Minister of the GoBpel, a  native of Scotland, speaking of the free  use of beer in that country, being the  cause of their having so little of drunkness  there; and about the same time I read  of this same beer drinking being the cause  of so much drunkness in Scotland. Now  the trouble with both Frenchmen and the  minister was that they grew up accustom  ed to excess in drinking and so paid no  attention to it. Some years later this minister visited his native land, and having had  his vision cleared by the purer atmosphere  of Canada, he soon realized his error, and  when he returned to his charge heat once  acknowledged it. He told of the great  number of drunken men he had met on  the streets, some carried to the station  houses, others still capable of wending  their devious way home. And Oh! the  curse of bonnie Scotland-the women too-  Aye, and the little children-the bairnies,  with the mark of vice on their faces. No  ginger essence there! 1 would like to ask  Mr. Kerr if there was no breaking of the  law under license? Did he never read bf  illicit stills being seized in Winnipeg, of  liquor being given to minors, and many  other things in the same line?  Does Mr. Kerr not know lhat Lloyd  George declared that liquor waa a greater  enemy to England than Germany was?  HaB he not read that Lord Beaconsfield  foretold that if England did not control  liquor, the day would come when liquor  would control England? And that day has  come, and beer drinking has not saved  the day.  Mr. Kerr appears to think that because  of the lawlessness of the traffic, that the  country ahould lie down and let the brew.  era govern. 1 do not agree with Mr. Kerr  in condoning law-breaking. Il should only  nerve all to mure action to annihilate tlie  octupus. I am with the prohibitionists  heart and soul but I do not think I could  frame a heavier indictment of the traffic  than does Mr. Kerr, in the statements he  makes in regard to law-breaking in British  Columbia. If such things are going on  under prohibition what must have been  the state of affairs under license, when the  very children hud acquired such an appetite for liquor, that when it was cut off  they sought an injurious substitute.  Mr. Kerr thinks that I imagine a good  deal. I have no need to draw on my  imagination. If space permitted I could  state facts to support my conclusions. As  tt is I must finish lest you, Mr. Editor,  should curtail my letter as you did the laat  leaving it to rather a "lame and impotent  conclusion." As it is I am thankful for  any space allowed me.

DUTIES : Orderly Patrol for  week, Wolves*, and also for week  following; next for duty, Eagles  PARADES: 1 he combined troop  will parade at the clubroom on  Wednesday April 30th at 7.15 p.m.  and on Friday May 2nd at 6.45  p.m. It is of the utmost importance  that every scout should attend all  the parades from now on till the  concert is over, because rehearsals for the  songs and other items are held at every  parade. It is up to every one of us to keep  our Annual Entertainment up to standard.  At the Friday parade every scout must  wear full uniform because we propose to  have the annual Troop photograph taken  on that date, lt is therefore also important  that every scout should be th re punctually on time in order that v. e may have  sufficient light for taking the pn-tograph.  On Saturday May 3rd, the tioop will  parade at the clubroom at 2.30 p m. for the  purpose of holding a paper chase.  Scouts who are working on tests must  endeavour to pass them at as early a date  as possible, because if too many are left  until just before the concert it is quite possible that we shall be unable to arrange  for taking all of them.  ���        ���  The dates for the concert will most likely  be Thursday and Friday the 15th and 16th  of May, when we shall have two evening  performances. Tickets will be given out  for sale to the scouts at the parade on  Friday May 2nd. and prizes will be given  aa usual for the scouts selling the most  tickets.  On Saturday I&Bt 17 scouts took part  in the hike to Canyon Creek. We left the  clubroom at 10.15 a.m. in the Jenkins Co.  truck driven by Mr. Geo. Kennedy, and  Instructor Buck's racer, driven by himself.  This was an instance, however, of where  the tortoise won, and at the end of the day  had to pull the hare back to town. After  lunch at the Canyon Creek Dam, a hike  was taken over the hills and down again,  emphasizing the down, to Mission Creek,  where Hybraulic Creek enters into it. lt  was commencing to rain a little then so we  thought it would be best to get back' to  town as quickly as possible. We have  never noticed the wood ticks to be so thick  before; it is practically impossible to pass  an evergreen tree without some of these  gentlemen attaching themselves closely to  you. Kelowna was reached shortly after  4 o'clock. The turnout was disappointingly small for this parade, but those who  attended all enjoyed themselves in the  exploration of the new country. 1 here  are noj many parts of the country round  about Kelowna which we have not now  explored.  Summerland Troop are proposing to  hold their annual collection of junk on  Saturday of this week. Last year they  realized $100 by the aale of thia collection  for local Patriotic Funds, and they propos'  to do the same again this year. They ask  ill the public through their local paper to  collect from their respective homes on a  certain date all their old rubber boots,  rubber tires, zinc, lead foil, old rags, brms,  copper, old boilrrs, kettles, etc., which are  then gathered and shipped by the Scouts  to a junk dealer at the coast.
