THURSDAY, .MAY 22, 1919-4 PAGES  1/  $1.50 Per Annum  [Memorial Campaign  WiH Start November  xecutive Appointed To Submit Suggestion and Estimate  of Probable Cost  At a meeting of the general committee of the Kelowna District  Memorial held Monday evening in  the council chamber, it wai decided to defer any active collecting  compaign for fundi until November lit, for various reasons, the  preient time not being considered  suitable for such an undertaking.  Since the public meeting held  April 9th, representatives from the  various districts have been appointed, the committee now consisting  1 of the following: chairman, J. W.  Jones, M.L.A.; city representatives:  Mayor Sutherland, Mrs. Calder,  Ven, Archdeacon Greene, Aid. W.  J. Mantle and Messrs. E. C. Weddell and L. V. Rogers; representing the GW.V.A., J. C.

Thompson; Westbank, W. G. Gore  and W. Hewlett; Ok. Mission,  R. H. Stubbs and R. Gray. Of  theae fourteen were present. City  clerk. G. H. Dunn was appointed  secretary.  A letter from Rutland stated that  though the people of that district  had decided to erect a memorial  of their own in the school grounds  the Kelowna committee waa invited to solicit subscriptions there  alio.  After these preliminaries the  chairman invited the members of  the committee to frankly express  their opinion as to the expediency  of initiating an active campaign in  the immediate future.  From reports presented it ap.  peered that there  was still  much  difference  of   opinion  ��s to   tlie t a,uray  form  the   memorial   ahould take, V.

It was  stated as the general opinion of a  majority of the public, that a monument should be erected first as a  token of respect to the dead, and  then a auitable memorial hall if  funds were available.  After much discussion on this  subject, it waa decided to appoint  a sub-committee, consisting of  Mayor Sutherland, Aid. Mantle,  J. N. Thompson, J. C. Anderson,  and E. A.

The young people of Rutland  held an enjoyable dance yesterday  evening in the schoolhouse.  Miss Lucy Craig returned from  Kamloopa on Saturday, bringing  with her Rena and Cecil Blenkarn  who will probably stay here until  the fall.  A number of Ellison and Rutland young men met this week at  the Fleming home to arrange for a  day of sports to be held at Rutland  on the 25th of next month. A  tentative achedule was drawn up  but further particulars will be announced later.  The Rutland and Ellison football teams met last Saturday in one  of the moat exciting' games yet  held. Both sides fought hard and  the scoring remained even until  within a few minute!, of the whistle  when Rutland made the winning  goal. In spite ol the utmost efforts  of the Ellison boys they were unable to retrieve their poaition and  the game closed 3���2 in favor of  Rutland, The line-up of the two  teams waa aa follows:���  W.

Boy Scout Concert  is Great Success  Theatre is Crowded Out Both  Evenings  Local Teachers Discuss  Salary Question  After a long period of illness  which lately became more acute,  there paaaed away Monday at their  home on the Black Mountain road  Rutland, Lucy Laura, the wife of  J. M. Bailey, eldest son of Postmaster Bailey of Kelowna. The deceased lady, who waa 33 yean ot age,  wai a daughterof Mr, Geo, Whelan,  of Elliion, born and reared in that  district. She leaves a family of  two young children.  The funeral took place Tuesday,  the service held at the house being  attended by many old friends and  relatives.

All reiolutioni must  be handed to the secretary not  later than May 27th.  Mr. and Mr*. Geo. Kennedy  were passengers to the coast today.  A meeting of the Kelowna teaching staff waa held on the 12th inst.  to consider the reply of the true  tees to the teachers' request for an  increaae of aalary. The increase  asked for waa 15 per cent, on all  salaries above $1,500 and 20 per  cent, on all aalariea under that  figure. The trustees replied by  offering each teacher on the staff  who waa satisfactory, five dollars  per month over the scheduled increase due next term,  lt was resolved at the meeting  that aa the queation ot teachers'  salariea had been discussed in the  city council, and as the report of  that meeting had been widely discussed throughout the city and  district, some attempt should be  made to correct a certain false impression that had spread abroad.  Unfortunately, the discussion of  the handling of taxes under the  new Municipal .Act became confused with the School Board estimates and the impression waa left  in the public mind that the threat,  ened closing of the schools, which  was mentioned apparently aa a  criticism of the Municipal Act, was  due to the huge increases the teachera were demanding.  In the columns of a local newspaper the chairman of the School  Board was reported as saying :"The  Board'a total receipts from the city  for the whole of 1918 came to  only $13,431, so the Board'a increase for 1919 showed an advance  of 40 per cent., which Mr. Bigger  declared was accounted for by in.  creased aalariea." As no public  contradiction has been made of  this statement it has been thought  necessary to lay the facta before  the public, for it is recognized that  no increaaes would be acceptable  to the teachers which have not  public opinion behind them.  While the teachers on the whole  The Kelowna Boy Scouts and  Cubs have every reason to feel  satisfied with the result of their  sixth annual entertainment which  took place last Thursday and Friday, for not only waa the program  provided a good one and successfully carried out, but the Kelowna  Theatre waa altogether inadequate  to accommodate the crowd which  sought to gain admission, and especially on the second evening  many had to go away disappointed, all the seats snd standing room  being filled long before the entertainment commenced. The increesing  popularity of the concert may alao be taken  aa a mark of the general appreciation of  the good work which is being accomplished by the movement in Kelowna under the  leadership of Scoutmaster E. Weddell and  Cubmastere Gordon and Bartholomew.  The purpose of the concert i. the raiaing  of fund, for the annual summer camp for  the boy., and on this account ita success i.  all the more pleaaant. Much hard work  had been entailed in the preparation for  the many itema on the programme, which  wa. a varied and interesting one.  The sounding of "Reveille" brought the  audience to attention, when the first number, a patriotic chorus, "Home Again,"  waa sung by the Troop. Thi. wa. follow-  by some well-executed - marches by the  Bugle Band, who under the training of Mr.  Fred Gore, are becoming wonderfully  adept. The Cub. then took the platform  with a tableau drill and chorus, followed  by an exhibition ot signalling by six of the  Scouts, Scout Small "brought the houae  down" with a comic aong about hia fascinating manner with the girla. It was then  the Cubs' turn to eing, which they did very  lustily in the chorus, "When you come  back."  In one of the Scouts' first concerts, they  achieved a great success with an amusing  sketch, "The Dentist's Den," and this waa  now repeated, proving aa popular aa ever.  After e brief interval the chorus, "Motor  King," wa. sung by the Troop, and an ex.  hibition of knot tying given by the Cubs.  An interesting ceremony at this point  waa the presentation of badgea by the Provincial Commissioner, the Rev. and Hon.  T. R. Heneage. Before doing ao Mr. Heneage spoke of' the Boy Scout movement  generally, and had aome encouraging |  .things to say about the Kelowne troop in  particular. He spoke of the great service  which the Boy Scouts had been to their  country during the war. Enlistment of  leadera had crippled aome of the troopa in  B.C., but many of thoae who left to fight  for their country were now coming back  offering their service, again.  In place of the presentation ceremony  on the second evening an amusing exhibition of blindfold boxing wa. given.  Scout C. Richards next told how Jimmy  tended the baby, a method not to be re.  commended. Moire marches by the Bugle  Band, an exhibition of physical training by  the Troop, and a number of bugle calls,  brought the programme to the concluding  item, a chorus, "Oh, how 1 hate to get up  in the morning I" aung with much reeling  and emphasis.  The accompanists were Mias Betty God-  dee, Miss Dorothy Leckie, and Miaa Denison, while Mr. J. N. Thompson conducted  the choruses. During the evening, the  president^ of the local Association, Mr. P.  DuMoulin, thanked all who had contribute the success of the concert by training  the boya and in many other way*.  Ask for Road Man  forJWs District  Board of Trade Sends Resolution to Government  Successful Local Students  The   following   students   from  Kelowna are included  in the pass  lists of the University of B.C., published Friday :���  Third Year:  Ethel Magee.  Second Year:  Margaret Clarke, Vivian Jones,  Everett Faulkner.  First Year:  Louise Campbell, George Day,  Marjory Bulman.  The Kelowna Board of Trade  held its regulsr monthly meeting  Tuesday, the attendance being  smaller because of the counter attraction of the Navy League meeting held the same evening. A  number of matters were discussed  from the state of the roads to the  high cost of living.  In regard to the former, the  Rutland farmers had written aaking endorsation for a resolution  demanding dismissal of the road  superintendent. Although the purpose of the resolution found strong  support, it was ultimately decided  to adopt one asking for the appointment of "an officer with full  power to build roads to be stationed in the Kelowna diatrict."  ���It was Mr. Denison who moved  that "owing to the abnormal and  unprecedented high pricea of the  necessaries of life in the shape of  food at the present time, and the  immediate necessity of prompt  action being taken to remedy thia  state of affairs, be it resolved that  this Board respectfully urge the  Kelowna Women's Institute to  take the matter up and heartily  endorse the action taken by the  ladies at the coast at a mass meeting held May Nth, urging the  Dominion government to take step,  to limit the exportation of foodstuffs."  This provoked a lengthy discussion but the motion was eventually  lost on the ground that such a  course would conflict with the export of fruit.  Mr. M. Hereron, appointed at a  meeting of the council of the Board  to assist returned soldier farmers  in the choice of land, reported  that so far eleven soldiers, mostly  local men, had made application  to purchase and settle on land in  this vicinity.  Mr. L. E. Taylor send a number  of auggestions regarding game regulations, pointing out in regard to  deer the inadequacy of the work  performed by the provincial police.  He promised to take the matter up  personally with coast association,  and the government departments  on hia next viait to the coast.  On the suggestion of Mr. P. P.  Woodbridge it ��as agreed lhat the  council of the Board should appoint a committee to consider the  advisability of making exhibits at  Vancouver, Calgary and other  pointa.  Resolutions were to be forwarded to the C.P.R. asking for sleeping car accommodation from the  Landing to the coast, and also for  an inquiry into the reason for the  delay at the Landing to which  north-bound travellers are subjected.  An informal discussion re telephone connection with the coast  elicited the information that the  different telephone companies had  the matter under consideration and  would make an announcement in  the near future.

Aa  a matter of fact, the increases for  the regular staff will cost the city  only $240 over the scheduled increases for the entire fall term.

The lecture waa  illustrated by a profusion of photo-  ���...   graphs and maps which made the  schools would not be closed for whole operation very clear to  the  ths lack of any such s-im, I audience.  Decide to Form Local  Navy League Branch  Lt. Helmsing Lectures on Raid  on Zeebrugge  Twice before haa Sir Chas. Hibbert Tupper been announced to  apeak in Kelowna on the aubject  ol the Navy League, and each time  lomething has happened to interfere with that intention. Ir was,  therefore, excusable that the audience gathered in the Methodist  church Tuesday evening, should  feel keenly disappointed when the  announcement was again, made  that he had been detained at the  coaat and could not appear as  advertised.  Fortunately, Lt. Helmsing, who  was announced to accompany Sir  Chatles and lecture'on the subject  of "The Zeebrugge Raid," had  managed to get here, and undertook both that duty and the explanation ot the aims and objects  of the League, with a view to  establishing a branch in Kelowna.  This was th? real purpose of the  meeting, and was successfully car  ried out at a meeting following th,  lecture when the necessary number  of signatures were obtained to an  application for a charter.  The chair was taken by Capt.  T. W. Stirling, O.B��., R.N., lately  returned from lour years' service  with the British Admiralty.  He regretted the absence of Sir  Chas. Tupper, who had wiret1 ���'  he  had   been   detained on highly  important   business   of   a   public  nature.  Speaking of the work of the  British Navy during the war, he  said it was now a common-place  fact that but lor il the war could  not have gone on, and when he  spoke of the Navy he meant not  only the Royal Navy, but the naval  reserve and men of the mercantile  marine. But for their heroic devotion England would not have  been abi't^o fared herscl' a week  Some of the men had gone down  totpedoed ships two or three  times, and had still remained faithful to their exacting duties. England's safety lay in her naval power,  and it was essential that the strength  of the navy and mercantile marine  be kept up, and that foreigners be  excluded from the service.  He spoke of the enormous traffic  hich had crossed the Atlantic  during the war, all of which would  have been impossible if the enemy  flag had not been driven off the  seas duiing the first few months of  the war. The Navy had mad  possible the enormous operations  in varioui parts of the world, and  the huge transport of troops.  Lt. Helmsing then undertook  on behalf of Sir Chas, Tupper to  explain - something of the great  work which the Navy League was  accomplishing.  The Navy League of Canada,  which waa formed in 1917 as a  branch of the older institution in  England, arose out of a need that  Canada ahould support an organization to affotd relief to dependents of her sailors. There were  now 22 branches in B.C, each  with a considerable membership.  During 1918-19 a sum of $1,728,-  000 had been raised ih Canada.  Of this one u.illion went to the  ���upport of the overseas organization, and the bt-lance to the foundation o( sailora' homes at various  Canadian seaports, extensions of  existing institutions and relief work  generally.  The objecta of the League were  to impress on the public mind the  importance of the Navy to the Empire ; to provide homes and medical care for sailors coming ashore;  to form Boya'Brigades which would  train boys in a knowledge of seamanship; and to engage in relief  work amongst the dependents of  sailors who were in need of assistance,  He urged the forming of a branch  in Kelowna, and explained the  procedure necessary to follow  The annual fee was $2 per annum,  junior membership being 25c.  A resolution proposed by Mavor  Sutherland and seconded by Archdeacon Greene, that a blanch of  the League be formed in Kelowna  was cairied unanimously.  Lights were then turned out and  Lt. Helmsing proceeded with this  lecture on the Zeebrugge Raid.  No more thrilling story has ever  been told than the exploits of Capt.  Carpenter and hia 1600 volunteers  Government is Scored  By Opposition Leader  First Political    Meeting  Since  1916 Election Campaign  For the tirst lime since lhe memorable election campaign of 1916,  Mr, W. J. Bowser, leader of tho  Conservative opposition appeared  before a Kelowna audience laat  night, and in a characteristic address, from which none of the old  fighting spirit was absent, severely  criticised the Liberal administration  not only Ior their want of faith in  not carrving out their pre-election  promises, but for the wasteful  muddle to which they had reduced  affairs during their three years of  office. In the must bare-faced  manner, he laid, tliey had manipulated  things to provide jobs ond rewards for  party supporters, forgetting the outcry tliey  had made against patronage before tbe  election.  The meeting was held in the Kelowna  Theatre, Mr. Leslie Dilworth presiding.  The hist speaker wan j. W. Jones, M.P.P.,  member for the district, who after review,  it.,* some of the events which had taken  place since the last election, went into a  detailed comparison of the finances of the  province at the present lime with those of  the late government. 1 he Liberals had  accused the old government of extravagance  but instead of carrying out their promises  of retrenchment and economy had plunged the province deeper and deeper into  debt.  The enormous and unwarranted increase  n the cost of the civil service, he believed  would account for much of it. Soft jobs,  he said, had been provided for numerous  friends of the government at fat salaries,  and gave many glaring enses of overpayment. Government road provided an outstanding instance u Liberal mismanagement  for while appropriation had been cut down  to a mere fraction, overhead charges had  actually increased. I ligti salaried officials  had been appointed, but the roads were  left in a neglected stute.  lhe Agriculturnl Aid Act introduced by  the late government nnd modelled upon  those in successful operation in New Zealand and other countries, bad been in  operation only- n abort time when the  Liberal government came into power. They  jjn-id ������"������������v^y.U J ^substituted thc Land  Settlement Act with six highly paid members whose proceedings had become a  standing joke.  In their provision for returned men. the  government had been equally unhappy,  the speaker dealing at some length with  their latest undertaking, the purchase of  22,000 acres south of Penticton. This land  which he had fonnd upon enquiry had  originally cost the company $26,000 had  been sold in the same condition to the  government for $350,000.  In conclusion Mr. Jones said that since  bis election as representative of the district, while In- had been unsparing in his  criticism of the government where he hsd  thought it necessary, he had not hesitated  to support any measure which he believed  wai for the benefit of the province.  Mr, Bowser was well received and it  was apparent that much of the animosity  which had been stirred up at the last  election had subsided. He recalled grimly the attacks of his political opponents at  that time who had accused him of almost  every crime in the calendar. "What have  they ever proved against me?" asked Mr.  Bowser. "Not a thing I " To-day he had  clearer conscience than his accusers,  and they had been kept busy investigating scandal in their own ranks. The  elaborate audit of the accounts had cost  $18,000 and the report had never been  tabled, It had not contained a single line  against the old administration. Time had  shown the foolishness of the insinuation  that be had been concerned in the plugging inquiry and the very man who had  accused him of complicity with MacKen-  zie fit Mann had been proved to have  $15,000 from thrm in campaign funds.  There had been a great outcry against  orders-in-council, and the Liberals had  passed -i,'/1 ; since they took office.  The Civil Service Act whieh wns to  have abolished patronage had been delayed for fourteen months, and with a  friend of the government as examiner  Liberals were being put in everywhere  except for a few returned soldiers, as the  result of pressure.  He referred to the tremendous increase  in taxation, and to the many costly and  ridiculous blunders which were constantly  being made. They had spent huge sums  for new furnishings and had purchased to  date 77 automobiles at a cost of $63,71��.  These were costing $25,000 a year to keep  up.  He created much amusement by poking  (un at the airplane experiment for forest  patrol which ended disastrously and cost  $8,500, and to certain steamboat purchases.  Thru ��� things, he said, were not only humorous but serioua as people's money was  being wasted.  The credit ol the province had fallen  away under this kind of thing and was  only now beginning to come back.  The present government was not sincere  on the returned soldier question and it  was not surprising that much dissatisfaction had been stirred .up.  He paid a tribute to the great assistance  Mr. Jones had been to him as leader of the  opposition. No member of the House had  been more Assiduous in hit duties.  In conclusion he touched upon the local  question of irrigation. He believed the  only solution waa a bold policy of government ownership' of ttorage systems, and  that no good could come of the d-tlay and  feeble attempts at relief whic constituted  present government'* policy.  In company with Mr. Jones the opposition leader left this morning for Penticton*  ���wMfMwgaSd PAGE TWO  KELOWNA  RECORD  SYNOPSIS  OP OOAL MINING  REGULATIONS  Coal mining rights of the Dominion  in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, the Yukon Territory, the NorthweBt  Territories, and 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.

For we muat all pull togeth.  er to make the camp this year better than  ever.  There are some twenty scouts who have  yet to make their returns from the sale of  ticketa ao we are unable to say at the  moment of writing exactly what we have  made. We know however that we have  done better than ever, and we wish to  thank the public very much for their  splendid support, and at the same time  apologise that we were not able to give  them batter accommodation on the second  evening. We were indeed eorry that any  had to be tumad away and if we had had  any idea that was going to happen would  have endeavored to hold a Saturday  matinee as well. If there are any purchas.  era of tickets who were unable to gain  admiasion we shall be glad to refund them  their money.  For the auccess which attended thi. our  sixth annual entertainment we owe a great  debt of gratitude to the following ladiea  and gentlemen who contributed ao much  to it: Mesdames Small and Rowcliffe for  decorating the stage and for material lent,  Mra. Calder for assistance with the songs  and play, Mr. J. N. Thompson for training  and conducting the singing, Mr. Fred Gore  for the bugle band, Mr. 11. J. Hewetson  for the physical training, Mr. Francis Buck  for the signalling, our accompanist, the  Misses Betty Gaddes, Dorothy Leckie and  Denison, and lastly but not least Messrs.  Gordon and Bartholomew of the Cuba.  We wish alao to thank the following for  material lent, Mesdamea Saunders, Groves  and Buck, the Kelowna Furniture Company  tha Aquatic Association, Maasra.

It is a pity the Assembly Hall is  not available for combined class  singing. Much better results would  be obtained if the children could  be assembled to hear each class  sing occasionally. We require  music books very badly. These  have been ordered for (our months  now but up to the present the  School Board has not been able  to obtain them. The teachers are  doing their beat with rote singing,  but that can scarcely be called an  enlightened form of education.  Some of the teachers are expecting  to attend the summer School of  Music this summer at Victoria.  We hope next term to see a um  uniform system of class singing  throughout the school. But in any  r:..sc the teaching of music will  never be on a proper educational  basis until a supervisor is appointed who can visit each room at  least once a week and give trained  advice and assistance to the teachers.  As far as one can see at present  only about sixty per cent, of the  total number of pupils in the Entrance classes will be able to go-  through. Had the winter not been  so hard on children as it has been,  and had their attendance been unbroken, some who may fail might  have been able to reach the required standard; but as it is they  will be well advised to remain in  the Entrance class another year.  If it could be arranged, the best  plan would be for those pupiis who  are to repeat in tbe Entrance, to  do Entrance work up till Christmas and thereafter to begin the  study of High School subjects as  a preparation for the regular High  School course. But I am doubtful  if the Department of Education  would sanction such e conrse.  1 am convinced, however, that  pupila are better to fail in the Entrance examinations than in the  first year High School examinations. If pupils go in ill-prepared  they become so discouraged that  they drop out.  ���        a  a  The grading of the rest of the  school will be equally disappoint  ing. I can unhesitatingly say that  the teachers have made a strong  effort to get the pupils as far for  ward as possible ; but with the  best of intentions they cannot force  nature. Had the mumps not come  upon the school we might have  recovered from the influenza epidemic. As it is we ask the parents to be assured that whatever  we consider to be in the beat interests ot each child will be done.  The school gardens are all planted. The principal's Entrance class  is working on a model home garden. The other classes are working on the individual plot ayatem.  m        a  a  A visit waa paid to the achool  last Friday by representatives from  the l.O.D.E.; namely, Mra. B.

Frail, Sickly Children  Improve Rapidly on Vinol  The reason we so strongly recommend Vinol for  frail, sickly children is because it is a non-secret  remedy which contains Beef and Cod Liver Peptones, Iron and Manganese Peptonates and Glycerophosphates ��� but no oil ���the very elements  needed to build them up. It is delicious to the  taste, and children love it  Theae Two Mothers Have Proved This.  Williamson, W. Va.  "My Httls boy was weak, pony,  and tired all tha time, did not want  to do anything. Vinol was recommended nnd it built up his strength  and made him healthy- Now he romps  and plays like other children. Ws  certainly believe In Vinol for children."  ���Harley Clay.  BaJabrfdga, N.Y.  "My little daughter, 18 yeara old.  overworked and waa run-down, tired  all ths time, nervous, had headaches,  couldn't eat and had to stay out of  school. Vinol haa built her up.

Explain it as we nay  there ia no doubt about the widespread interest in the subject which  is being manifeated at present.  With its promise of communion  with those loved and lost, it is not  surprising that the "ism" referred  to should prove attractive to some  types of mind at thia time,  "We protest against hatted being perpetuated for ever; a curae  being established for ever." This  Is p.ni of a recent statement by  Mr. P. Schiedeman, a German gentleman of some considerable notoriety. He would only use hatred  when it suited his party, I suppose.

The  whole tone of the paper is insistent on the wisdom of reasonableness and moderation on the part  of returned men in regard to their  relatione with the authorities. But  if you don't happen to take the  paper I would advise you to borrow it, and���read it, of course.
