 smtMmsmtmmms^ssmsmsM  'letatva, B.C.  tSe\��o(yosi  lefototm tlttorb  SSfourCHt*)  VOL XI   NO. 8  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY. JANUARY 9. 1919.���6 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Annual Reports by  Municipal Committees  The city council having again  decided to forego the annual ratepayers' meeting at which the mayor  and aldermen were wont to give  ���n account of their doinga (or the  year paat, it was arranged that the  heads of the various committees  should prepare brief statements te  be submitted to the regular meeting of the council. These statements were handed in Monday  evening, and are given below.  MAYOR  SUTHERLAND  In reviewing the municipal work  of 1918, the Mayor stated that he  could find no item of special interest other than the aettlement oi  the long atanding tax dispute with  theC. N. R. Co. By the terms of  thit settlement all lands not covered by the right-of-way were released from the exemption clause  in their agreement with the provincial government, the company paying the city over $9,000 ol taxea in  arrears, as well as those of the  current'year.  With an increase in waget, fuel,  and material, corresponding to the general  advance in the cost of living, with decreased revenue from hotel licenses and other  sources, with capital expenditure paid out  of current revenue instead of raising  money by debentures, with a shrinkage in  assessable property due to tax aalea, thay  had endeavored to carry on without imposing an additional burden on the taxpayer other than an increase of 121 per  cant in ths light and water rates, which  had come into affect late in the year.  The attempt to finance the city under  theae conditions had resulted in the expenditure exceeding tha revenue by 414,000.  This waa not a healthy financial condition  and muat ba guarded against in the future,  pointing to an increaae in tha tax levy for  1919.  Municipal conditions throughout the  province, aa outlined in the municipal inspector's report, ahowed an increase in  arrears of taxea, increased indebtedness,  and a continual shrinkage of sinking funds.  It waa pleasing to note that theae conditions did not prevail in Kelowna.  He thanked the aldermen for the careful attention they had given to their respective departments, aaa for the spirit of  cooperation and harmony which had existed during tha year. Thia had rendered  hia own part of the work vary light and  extremely pleasant.  CITY'S FINANCIAL AFFAIRS  In presenting tha report for the Finance  Committee for the year, Aid. Rattenbury  said that last year tha council had taken  great credit for the achievement of having'  paid off tha bank loan, and put an amount  of $2,493.65 to the credit of the Sinking  Fund. They had accomplished even  greater success this year, having not only  paid the bank loan in full to tht amount  of $40,000, but also paid off a private loan  of $3,000, redeemed $5,000 worth of debenture bonds, snd in addition placed in  the Sinking Fund $14,683.40. The Sink,  ing Fund atill lacked $34,251.26 of what it  should be, but there was sufficient liquid  assets to take cars of the deficit if all the  arrears of taxea ware paid.  The outstanding arrears of taxea as com-  raiad with laat year had bean reduced by  13,049.13.    This wss a very desirable  feature.  Currant liabilities hsd been reduced  from $25,633.32 in 1916, $12,319.10 in  1917, to $3,729.36 in 1918. This was alao  a very good ahowing.  The aurplue of liquid assets over current  liabilities in 1917 were $14,447.04. This  had been reduced in 1918 to $3,990.24. a  vary bad feature caused by the deficit in  the Light and Water plant, and by several  of tha departments exceeding their estimates.  The Finance Committee waa of opinion  that no program of extensive expenditure  ehould be undertaken until the arrears of  taxes ware paid and tha Sinking Fund replaced in full.  PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE  On behalf of the Public Works department, AM. W. J. Mantle reported thst there  had been an increase in expenditure in  1918 of $780.03 over the previous year,  largely due to tha rise in day labor rate  ana coat of team work.  A quantity of cinders having been available the committee had decided to experi.  ment in the construction of cinder walks.  During tha year 9000 fast had been constructed at a cost of twelve and a quarter  centa per foot.  It had been decided to operate the rock  cruaher for a ahort period and 200 loads  of 1 inch rock had been turned out and  distributed on the main roada. Contrasted  with gravel a bigger load could be hauled  owing to the absence of aand, the saving  in coat of hauling going against the coat of  operating the crusher.  PARKS AND BOULEVARDS  COMMITTEE  For the Parka Committee which included Aid. Knowles ea chairman, Aid. Mantle  and Messrs. D. W. Crowley, W. J. Palmer.  L.E Taylor:-  Tha noma and alao the duties of tha  committee, Aid. Knowlaa stated in hia re.  Eort, had been aomawhat changed since  tst year, having included with the can of  the Parka tha upkeep of the street trees.  Permanent improvement had been made  in tha park during tha year by extending  tha driveway past the Aquatic buildings  aa far aa the ball ground, and the drive  had alao been widened behind the buildinga to allow room for tie potts and the  parking of cars.  Owing to ths shutting off of thafirrigation  Ng Red Cp Drive  Starts Here Monday  At a meeting Wednesday afternoon at which Mayor Sutherland  presided, forcea were organized  for the "Red Croat Drive" which  is to take place all next week. The  Rev. E. D. Braden waa appointed  chairman with Mr. L V. Rogers as  secretary and Mr. Forster treasurer. Profiting by previoua experience in auch matters the district  waa mapped out into sections snd  a large force of canvassers assigned to the work of carefully canvassing each one.  - An appeal ittued by the chairman and secretary ttatet the object of the drive to be to tecure  fundi for a larger programme of  work which haa confronted the  Red X aince the tigning of the  armistice, including the care tor  tick and wounded aoldiera during  repatriation ; the care for wounded  priaonera and their welcome from  enemy camps; the. work of helping the needy in the portioni of  Belgium and France recently evacuated.  The mainland of B.C. ia asked  for $250,000, of which Kelowna it  expected to contribute $2,000.  Canvassers will be at every home  during the next few dayt and it ia  hoped they will be met aa generously at possible. The local committee it anxiout to complete the  canvaaa early in the week, and  aome collecting may be done on  Saturday,  The great caute of the Red X  seeds no recommendation. Their  magnificent work is too well known  Let Kelowna people ahow that thev  can go " over the top " with thit  $20,000 just aa they did with the  Victory Loan.  Construction of Kelowna Branch  Railway Line Assured This Year  water improvement of the - cemetery walk  with trees hed not been done. Shade  treea had been planted on Bernard Ave.,  Harvey avenue and Richter street. The  total expenditure for tht yetr had been  $2,449.48.  "We 'would recommend to tho incoming  council," AM. Knowlas concluded, "that  tha driveway in the Park be continued  thia year aa far aa Abbott etreet bridge,  thus affording traffic a means of access  through tho park. Owing to ita in accessibility we believe than are few citizens  who realize tha extant and beauty of thia  property. By the completion of thia drive  the park would be much mora uaad and  enjoyed by the public at large, thua fulfilling more fully the object of the original  expenditure and the upkeep from year to  year."  LIGHT AND WATER PLANT  AM. Duggan waa chairman of thia committee and reported as follows i���  "The revenue derived from the plant  waa $33,864,38 ahowing an increase over  tha previous yoar of $2,448.31. Tha expenditure amounted to $37,970.71, ahowing  increase of $3,437.05 aa compared with  1917. Thia appeara to htva been unavoidable, being principally due to the extra  coat of fuel, increaae in wages and necessary repairs to the plant.  "During tha year your committee realized that the plant wss still being operated  at a loss, consequently they found it necessary to make a alight increase in the rates.  "The following is a comparative statement of the active connections aa at 31 at.  Dae. 1917 and 1918:--  Light Power Water  1917 497      40      491  1918 343     44     336  Thit increase haa bean general throughout the year, and there it every indication  that this satisfactory condition will continue,  "In connection with the personnel of  thia department, there have been- two  changes during the year. 1 am pleased  to state that each and every member of  tha staff has given efficient and eatiefectory  aervice."  BUILDING AND FIRE COMMITTEE  The Fire Brigade, stated AM. Meikle.  Was now up to full strength, with Mr.  Alsgard aa chief, snd tha hall wail-equipped. Too much praise could not be given  to tha Brigade members for the aelf-aarri-  ficing way in which thay responded to fire  calls at any hour of the day or night.  The department htd been called out  eleven times during the year, the total es.  timatcd fire damage being $3,500, an exceedingly small amount, which want to  prove what an efficient and capable fin  department could do.  A recommendation came from the previous council to provide the brigade with  an up-to-date chemical motor truck. Thia  had been equipped and installed, and  trials had proved it all thet could be de-  aired, ft would be of great assistance in  eliminating tlie great lots by wstsr, and in  checking fires at their outset.  The expenditures had been $4,033.66, of  which $2,126.28 had bten capital expenditure for new equipment.  In the matter of buildings, Building Inapector Bigger had reported the issuing of  26 new permits, to tha value of $29,297.  HEALTH AND  SEWERAGE  In hia report for the Health Committee  Aid. W. Lloyd Jonas note the increase in  the number of patients treated at tha Kelowna Hotpital from 171 in 1917 to 230 in  1918. He also outlined tha circumstances  connected with tha epidemic of influmue,  the city having escaped with  fourteen  A telegram which came Monday  from the chairmen of the National  Railway Board, definitely announcing the immediate construction of  the Kamloopt-Kelowna branch  line was the somewhat ttartling but  none the lets pleating reply to  wires which had been tent to the  Railway Board arranging for the  visit of a delegation which it wat  proposed ahould go from the Okanagan. "^-'  The wire readt as follows:���  Secretary, Bosrd of Trade:  Our construction programme thit  year includes proceeding with con  struction of the Vernon line. Don't  think any good purpoae could be  served by tending delegation. We  are all impressed with the importance of thit line in the near future.  (Sd.) D. B. Hanna.

Women's Institute  Annual Meeting  The Kelowna Women's In. held ita  annual meeting on Monday afternoon Jan. 6th in the Board of Trade  roomt, when reporta for 1918 were  received and officers elected for  1919.  The Secretary'a report showed a  membership for the paat year of  100. The programme at arranged  wat carried out during the first  part of the year, but fruit and "flu'  wrought havoc with meeting! of  the doling montht. Following the  vitit of Mn. Mildrew of the Dominion Food Department, the Inttitute undertook to tecure tignatures  to the food pledge cards, and were  to successful that some 250 signed  cards were returned to the tecretary.  The Institute wat again invited by  the A. & T. Association to assist at  the Fall Fair in connection with  the departments comprising ladies'  and children's work.  The demonstrations and lectures  by Miss McFarlane and Messrs  Cooke, Austin, Trenwith and Palmer were interesting and helpful.  A vegetable section wat added  to the Flower Show and served to  increase the interest in thit ennual  event. The total number of entries  far exceeded thote of previout  years'. A garden competition waa  initiated by Mr. G. A. Chick, who  generoualy offered three prizet for  the bett flower and vegetable gar-  lawn &c.  The North Thompson and Okanagan Conference of Women'a  Institutes met in Kelowna in Oct-  A hearty welcome wat accorded  Monday to Capt. Douglaa "Paddy"  Cameron, who wat returning after  a strenuous overseas tervice extending over almoat the whole period  of the war. He left Kelowna with  the B.C. Horae, but afterward transferred aa trooper to the Strathcona  Horse at Valcartier, and went  overseas with the first contingent,  he was decorated with the Military  Cross for distinguished tervice  around Arraa latt year, and hit  energetic work hat alto earned for  him a well deserved promotion to  his present rank. He was wounded some months ago in the leg and  it in hoapital in England when  the armistice wat aigned. He returned yetterday to the coaat in  order to complete the formality of  hia ditcharge.  Another returning Kelowna soldier during the week was Lieut'  O, j$t,.P. Aitkent.who came in yesterday, formerly of the Okanagan  Loan Co.'s staff. He entitled during July, 1915. wilh lhe 47th, then  training at New Westminster, arriving in France the following  aummer. His first tew months  were trying ones, and by Decen ���  ber he waa laid up with dyaentery.  Returning to lhe trenchea on hit  recovery, thit time with a cimmia-  sion, he went through tome strenuous experiences, being wilh the  Canadians in the famout Paachen-  dale district.

Farmers'Institute Holds  Its Annual Meeting  The annual meeting of the Kelowna Farmers' Inttitute held Saturday afternoon latt, though not very  largely attended wet productive of  much interetting discussion of interest to the farming community,  and aeveral important reaolutiona  were patted.  A feature of the meeting waa a  comprehentive report from the  president, Mr. L. E. Taylor, who  in addition to reviewing the acliv-  itiea of the local Institute during  the .past year, and the proceeding! of the recent meeting of  the Central Advisory Board at Victoria, gave a brief statement of the  agricultural progress of the district  looking optimistically at future  protpectt, and urging atill closer  cooperation of all agricultural interests.  The Institute had had a successful year, financially ae well at otherwise, ill total receipt! having sufficed to cover an expenditure of  $550.11 wilh a alight turplui to the  good.  After recalling the various meetings held during the year, Mi. Taylor reported that the Kelowna  Inttitute had been made the centre  for "District G," of which diatrict  he himself had been elected representative to attend the meeting  of the Advitory Board at Victoria  November. At thit meeting  much uteful business had b-en  trantacted, and many important reaolutiona brought before the notice  of the government. Chief amongtt  thete had been a carefully worked  out plan for the thorough reorganization of the Department of Agriculture in order to secure a greater  degree of officiency than wat possible under the present somewhat  confused and wasteful system.  Fruit packing achoola had been  held in Kelowna during the spring  at which 60 pupilt .had taken the  courae, but the directoia felt they  were no longer necessary and  might be discontinued here, the  department confining them to newer diatricta which were more in  need of them.  Some 131 tont of ieed grain  had been purchased from the department by members of the local  Inttitute, and a reaolution had been  aent aaking the government to continue auch distribution, but that the  teed be made available not later  than March I it, aa much inconvenience had been caused to all concerned by the lateness of itt delivery.  Mr. S. T. Elliott had kindly undertaken to supply crop report!  of the district for the "Agricultural  Journal."  One hundred and fifty 3-pound  samples of teed potatoea had been  tecuied by the'secretary from the  Summerland Experimental Farm  and distributed to members and  others, and tome very interetting  retuiti had been obtained. Mr.  W. D. Hobaon, of Okanagan Million, had raited a record crop of  250 lbs. from hit three poundt of  Dalmeny Beauty.  In Auguat about twenty members  had motored to the experimental  farm and, aa uaual, had spent a  very interetting and enjoyable day  wilh Mr. Helmer.  The crop compelitiont held by  the Inttitute in oniont, tomatoes,  beans and corn, had been a source  of considerable interest, the corn  competition especially being very  keenly conteated. In connection  with the latter Mr. A. H. Crichton  had won the challenge cup offered  by the Bankhead Orchard Company for .the bett crop of "North  Wett Dent." The district had alao  carried off a contiderable number  of prizet in the Provincial S-rd  Production Competition, open to  the whole of the province, Kelowna growert, in fact, being winner*  in every class in which they had  entered.  Continuing Mr. Taylor reviewer  the crop conditions and agricultural progress generally.  FRUITGROWING  Wilh the excr plion of an errat c  cold streak last winter which entirely destroyed the fruit buds ir>  tome sections,the weather throughout the year had been very favorable, lhe fail being particularly  oper. Early apples, peart and  atone fruits were a very heavy crop  especially peara and cherries. Late  applea, especially Jonathan, were  a small crop. Pricea ruled exceedingly high.  There were no aerioua oulbreakt  of inaect peats which may be due  to increaaed spraying or at any  rate the more intelligent uae of  spray. s��laai'***"ii'  * Fire blight hsd been particularly  bad in common with the fruitgrowing sections of the Statea to  the aouth. There was a very heavy  bloaaom infection after which the  trouble seemed to atop until late  in aummer when it appeared again  in a very virulent form notably in  peart, causing great damage to  young treea.  The greatest care would have to  be taken thit winter in getting rid  of all blight cankers, otherwise the  situation might be serious next  summer. The, Minister of Agriculture had given his aaaurance lhat  rigid inspection would be carried  out and the Act relating to disease  control rigidly enforced.  The embargo on the importation  of fruit to Great Britain had been  lifted after the signing of the armistice, too late to be of any great  assistance to shippers here, though  quite a number of cara of apples  had been shipped acrott. Our  applea continued to gain popularity on the eattern markets. The  Auatralian embargo remained.  The keeping qualities of our late  applet thii year had cauaed conaiderable trouble. The cause ia  apparently, unknown, and the only  consolation we had waa that apple! from other parti of Canada  and the Statea had behaved in the  aame manner.  Freight and expreai shipments  from Kelowna showed verv satisfactory figures.  VEGETABLES  Onions were a poor crop. Damage by thrip caused a conaiderable  reduction in the yield and the  quality waa very poor due to bad  curing and amallnett of the onions.  Mr. Taylor aaid that some day,  when the farmera had lost enough  money, they might seriously take  lo heart the advice constantly given  by people who know something  of growing and marketing of onions  and adopt proper, methods of  growing, curing and grading,  TOMATOES  Great damage had been done to  newly-set-out planta by frott in the  tpring but fortunately it waa possible to replace moat of theae. The  late fall made up for the late apring  and the crop waa a bumper one  with cannery pricea around $20  per ton. Tomato growera thould  have reaaon to congratulate themselves.  TRUCK  Mott truck cropt had given good  returns, but the vegetable market  could eaaily be overdone and growera would be well adviaed to make  contracla in advance for auch crops  aa pumpkins, cucumbers, &c.  DAIRYING  The outstanding feature of the  local dairying industry had been  the formation of the Kelowna Holstein Breeders' Attn, and the importation by membera of thit association of sixteen pure-bred heifen  ���elected by Prof. McLean and P.  Moore. The Association had alto  purchaaed a very fine voung bull  from the Colony Farm, with several world's record cows in hia pedigree.

The local  creamery had had a very success  ful year and continued to prove of  great value to the district. 98,363  lba. of butter had been ihe year's  output, an increase over 1917 ol  4,580 lbs. Farmers had been paid  $41,680, an increase of $7,427  over the previous year. The average price of butter fat in 1918 was  49.83 centa per lb., and in 1917  41.60 centa per lb. it should be  noted that increasing quantity of  cream was being received from  outside districts and without this  the ahewing would not have been  to favourable.  SEED GROWING  Thia new and  important industry  waa making progress.   Many  farmera   were   feeling   their   way  slowly, which  waa a  aound  proceeding.   The outatanding featurea  in teed production were:���  Oniont        about 2J tona  Sugar Beet       ���     II   ���  Radith .,       i    ���  Tomato ���     50 lba.  Canteloup       ���   250   ���  Corn ���      25 tona  Beana and Peaa aeveral tons  and aeveral smaller lota.  LIVESTOCK  There had been a large increase  in hog production and pricea had  ruled high. Beef cattle were in-  creating and the quality improving  with the introduction of good aires.  Hone breeding had decreased and  there wat need of a good heavy  stallion in the district. Sheep were  increasing and some good itock  had been imported. Wool had  reached a very high price and  aheep were in good demand.  FACTORIES  Factoriei���There had been great  activity in the cannery section  The Occidental Fruit Co. had added a large and up-to-date cannery to their butinett; the B.C  Grower! had handled a large evaporator for oniont and potatoet  the Wettern Cannera were continu  ing to work during the winter with  beans; the Orchard City Evaporator had manufactured a consider-  able quantity of chryttallized ttone  fruits.  LABOUR  Thit had been the greateat problem throughout the year. We  could lay we had got through and  that waa all. The organization of  female labour had been of the  greatest assistance, more especially for the canneries and for fruit  picking. The cost of labour had  been very high, commensurate  with the high coil of living, but  the fact should not be lost sight of  that the farming induatry waa carried on with amall margins for  profit and unless the price of farm  produce kept pace with the cost of  production ruin would face the  farmers.  "In conclusion," laid Mr. Taylor,  " I think the farmera of thia dittrict  now that the war ia over, can look  back with pride at the progress  they have made during the last  four yeart in tpite of great diffi  cultiea and they can honeatly face  the returned men and aay ; ' We  have carried on while you have  gone over end beaten the Hun.'

Our heartieat congratulations to  Chesterfield Troop of North Vancouver on winning the Lieutenant-  Governor's Shield for the season  of 1917-1918. This troop has al-  wavs been one of the most serious  contenders for the Shield and we  are very glad to tee their persistent  good scouting rewarded in this  manner at last. May their good  luck continue!  The following it the provincial  ordet in thit reipect:���  "The Challenge Shield presented  by T. W. Patteraon, Esq., during  hit term of office aa Lieutenant-  Governor of British Columbia and  generally known aa the Lieutenant-  Our duty at farmers it to help all  we can in the reconstruction ; to  take a little more interest in matters which affect us at farmera and  to build up a better farming community which will be the backbone  of the country for all time.  Maeterlinck says: ' In proportion  aa a tociety organizet itaelf and  ritet in the tcale, ao doet ihrinkage  enter the private life of each one  of itt membert. Where there it  progress it it the result only of a  more and more complete sacrifice  of the individual to the general  interests.'"  ELECTION OF OFFICERS  The election of officers, which  wat then proceeded with, resulted  in the unanimoua reappointment  of Mr. L, E< Taylor as pretident,  (hit being hit fifth term in that  office. Mr. A. W. Cooke wai elected vice-president, with Messrs. M.  Heieron. S. T. Elliott, E. A. Day.  P. A. Lewis, W. D. Walker, J. E.  Seon, jr., H. C S. Collett. J. Leathley and W. Pryce at a board of  directora.  A long discussion took place on  the question of onion grading, it  being contended that the lack of  proper ahipping methoda waa  spoiling the market for the Kelowna product. There waa considerable difference of opinion on the  subject. Some experienced growers present expressed the view that  too much waa being nade of the  size of the onion, whereaa the important thing wai the ripeness and  keeping quality. The whole question, it waa ttated, wat to be debated at a meeting of the B. C. Fruit-  growera' Association at Penticton, and a  committea consisting of Messrs. L. E.  Taylor, Peter Caaorao and S. T. Elliott  were appointed to meet that body and  join in the discussion.  The following resolution submitted by  C. E. Weeks, was passed: "Whereas, owing to improper methoda of harvesting  and ahipping tha market for our onions is  falling into disrepute and ia in danger of  being lost; and whereaa the value of the  onion crop of this valley amounts approximately to $150,000, the loss of which would  be serioua to the grower; be it resolved  that we respectfully request the Dominion  government to at once establish and enforce a aystem of grading suitable to the  requirements of the market."  Mention waa made of a presentation  which' was being made to W. A. Scott,  former deputy minister of agriculture, in  which all Institutes were joining in recognition of his many yeara' work on their behalf.  ' The directora ware authorized to confer  with the Board of Trade regarding tha  rebuilding of tha wharf and the possibility  of changing ita location.  An interesting proposal waa made by  Mr. P. Caaorao, who stated that during the  aummer Messrs. Caaorao Bros, had been  conducting a series of experiments ill the  curing of alfalfa in six distinct waya.  About 300 tona had been .rut up, and it  was a good opportunity to extend tha ex-  parimenta to the fattening of atockin order  to teat tha quality of tha hay cured by  various methoda. It waa decided to. ask  the government to cooperate with Messrs.  Casorso to secure the information for the  benefit of the farmers in general.  A resolution waa passed asking for legislation to compel the cutting out of fire  blight, which waa becoming a serious  menace to the diatrict.  It waa alao decided ta urge the provincial government to assist in the movement  to secure tha building ti tht Kamloopa-  Kalowna branch railway.  Governor'i Shield haa been awarded to the Cheaterfield School Troop,  North Vancouver, B. C, who hold  it during the year 1919.  Thit Challenge Shield ia awarded to the troop that haa made the  bett possible progress during the  year, the conditions under which  the troop it working being taken  into account.  The almoat equally praiseworthy  efforta of many other troopa in the  province, under unusually trying  war condition!, have been carefully  noted, and will not be forgotten.

The total expense to  the eity in connection wilh the epidemic  had been $350.90. The low mortality and  expense compared with other cities were  matters for congratulation.  Referring to the sewerage system, he  stated that the main trouble had been in  disposing of the water and refuse from  the canneries. The present system waa  never intended to take care of auch refuse,  and in the opinion of the foreman, some  other method of disposing of it must be  devised so as to prevent so many tomato  skins finding their way into the septic  tank.  The total wages and operating expenses  for the sewerage system amounted to  $2,666.26, the aewer rates of $164 being  the only revenue.  A comparison of the figures for the  past two yeara in the scavenging department showed an increase in cost of wages  and supplies, and a decrease in fees collected, a matter which would need attention from the incoming council.

No fewer than  three of the regular staff were absent on account of influenza, name-  Ip Mits Page, Miia Leckie.and Mitt  Wood. Fortunately we were able  to secure the services of three  qualified B. C. teachers at tubttitu  tet.  As a rule we grade at the end of  January, but thia will be impotsible  thia vear; far a great part of the  already done hat been lost or ii to  dimmed in the minds of the children that a foitnight'a review will be  necessary to revive it.  Oovioualy we cannot grade at  usual, and it ia a question whether  we should not repeat latt term's  work almost from the beginning  and postpone our grading till June,  If thia course were purtued it would  be necessary to avoid doing any  injustice to those pupila who have  studied at home to faithfully. Some  provition would have to be made  for their promotion ao that they  would not lose a year. However,  no decition hat been come to  yet  In any case we cannot take pupilt  for the Receiving clan at the beginning of February at formerly.  The beginnera who enrolled in  September will require to go back  to the beginning of their phonics  again, and they cannot be promoted until a good foundation hat been  laid.    .

To the Editor of  The Kelowna Record.  Dear Sir: Another local hr ro returned yetterday and again, as they  have done every time, the reception committee have failed to do  their duty by their non-appearance  and lack of method. They have.  at I have already atated, mott miserably failed in giving to our returning boys a proper welcome.  One would think that we do  not appreciate what they have  done. Kelowna teemt to be the  only cily where the citizent have  fallen down, and in view of the  fact that very ahortly a number of  other boys are due back, let thote  citizent who know their duty form  at once a proper and a more patriotic committee, and let ua thow  the boyt that Kelowna deeply appreciate! the sacrifices they have  made, and give them a real welcome home when they come in���  one.or more.
