 tutfii.  ViettHia, B  ,C.  VOL. X.   NO. 22.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY. APRIL 18, I9I8.-4 PAGES  $130 Per Annum  Regular Meeting of  City Council  Patriotic   Fund   Deputation -  Sidewalk Men Seek Increase  _ The city council met Monday  evening in regular meeting, their  first business being to receive a  deputation consisting of Rev. E. D.  Braden and Mr. R. E. Denison, representing the local branch of the  Patriotic Fund,' who stated that  they had been desired by their  executive committee to ascertain  the council's views in reference to  the office of secretarv-treasurer of  the branch. There was a general  opinion that Mr. J. R. Beale had  been appointed to the office by thc  city council, and that the monthly  grant from the city was conditional  upon his occupying the office. The  executive committee duly appreciated the manner in which Mr.  Beale had discharged hia duties as  secretary-treasurer, but at the same  time they felt that it would be in  the beat interests of the Fund if it  were generally known that- they  had a free hand jn_llbe appointment of their secretary-treasurer.  It wm found upon reference to  the minutes of a previous meeting  that the council had confirmed the  appointment of the present secretary at tbe request of the president  of the Fund, but the deputation  was assured that neither the council of 1917 nor the present council  desired to have any voice in the  appointment of the officers of the  Fund.  The deputation then informed  the council that the salary of the  secretary-treasurer was fifty dollars  per month, forty of which were  subscribed by the city and ten by  private indiuiduals for that purpose. It was suggested that the  city increase its grant to fifty dollars per month in order that the  committee might be able to inform  the public that no part of their  subscription* were going towards  payment of salaries.  After considering this request,  however, the council decided that  in view of the many claims which  were at present made upon them  they would be unable to grant  such a concession. They assured  the deputation that the grant of  forty dollars per month would be  continued.  SEEK  WAGE INCREASE  A petition was received from  nine men now engaged upon the  city sidewalks and streets for an  increase in wage from $3 tp $3.50  per day. This was not agreed to  however it being argued that the  city is alrradv paying the maximum  wage in the city for such labor, and  they would not be justified in raising it.  The B.C. Evaporator who stated  their intention to enter the canning  business this year applied for definite permission from the council  to discharge clean 'water into the  lake, as had Jjeen suggested at a  former meeting.  There waa aome discussion over  this point, and an alternative suggestion made that the canning companies might secure permission  from the C.N.R. Co. to discharge  theii clear water into Wittup's  Pond. It was finally left to the  Health Committee to investigate.  The Fire Brigade wrote pointing  out that the new hydrant placed or  Haynes Avenue was not accessible  to the apparatus without some  grading being done. The matter  was referred to the Public Works  Committee.  Mr. W. Haug sent a cheque for  $ 118.28 being the amount of a rebate which he  had  secured from  fCttsUsatai oat Frsta 4.1  Though the war news of the big  German offensive during the past  week has been one disappointment  after another, further alipping back  of the British lines and capture by  the Germans of more and more  territory, it is remarkable that nothing but confidence is expressed  by the Allied leaders as to the ultimate outcome, and scarcely one  word of pessimism has come from  those in a position to know. Wait  aad see, is their significant ad-  sice.  Good Programme for  Six Day Chautauqua  June 5th to I Ith are Dates For  Kelowna Event  Some particulars have just come  to hand regarding the big six day  Chautauqua Festival which is to be  held from Wednesday to Tuesday,  June 5th to I Ith  On the first day your programme  will be opened by the Ionian Ser-  enaders��� four wonderful artists.  They give a varied programme,  are splendid musicians, and play a  number of instruments ; they also  sing well. In the evening they will  give a prelude, but a good share of  the programme will be taken up  by one of the world's greatest entertainers, A Mather Hilburn.  On the aecond afternoon the  well-known violinist, Ferdinand  Fillion, with a noted American  singer, Miss Fern Goltra, will appear, whilst in the evening Whitfield Ray, a member of the Geographical Society of London, a  Canadian by birth, will appear. He  is an author and traveller of great  reputation.  On the third day the Clare  Vaughan Wales Players will give  one of the most attractive evenings  of the week. The play that they  will deliver is entitled "Rejuvenation." In the afternoon tliey will  give a short prelude to be followed  by probably the greatest inspirational lecturer that will appear on  the Chautauquas this summer, Dr.  William Rader.  The fourth day of the programme  will be Music Day���by the Witep-  aki's Orchestra. Thev will give a  prelude in the afternoon and a full  programme at night. Wiss Emily  Waterman, a splendid literary interpreter, will complete the programme in the afternoon. In the  evening Miss Gladys Shaw, prima  donna, of whom so much has been  written'of late in musical papers,  will make two appearances. The  orchestra will accompany her.  The prelude of the fifth afternoon and evening will be given by  Canada'a leading baritone, H. R.  MacDonald. The afternoon will be  what is known as Farmers' Day  Tbe Hon. T- A. Crerar, Dominion  Minister of Agriculture, has arrang-  ged this program, and it will be  definitely announced later. The  evening lecturer will be Captain  W. J. Hindley, who formed so  popular a feature of last year's  Chautauqua.  The last afternoon the Ladies'  Festival Orchestra (not the same  as last year) will give a short pre  lude, followed by one of the biggest lecturers of the last summer's  circuit. The evening will be one  of the great programme* of the  week and the Ladies' Orchestra  will close the Chautauqua with flying colours.  o ���  Speaks on Food Control  At a well-attended meeting last  Thursday evening in the Board of  Trade room, Mrs. Jean Muldrew.  who is touring the west on behalf  of th e Canada Food Board, gave  an address full of information as  to the present food situation, and  of the methods by which food can  be conserved in Canada for the  supplying of the soldier* and let*  favored Allies. The speaker emphasized the great scarcity of  essential articles ot food overseas,  especially in France, and urged  that every effort be made to carry  out the wishes and plans of the  Food Board in the way of saving  and substituting.  Mrs. Muldrew spoke of the difficulties of food control and the task  which had faced the Board in its  efforts to build up this entirely  new organization. Many plans had  been tried and railed, but the new  regulations promised to - be effective especially if the co-operation  of the public could be secured.  Food rationing was impossible  In Canada and a campaign of education was the onlv means of effect  ing their object. Housewives  should use every endeavor to save  such things a* -flour, beef, bacon  and sugar, both by economy and  by substituting other thing*.  Mr*. Muldrew urged the utmost  production of vegetable*, and every  . iece of vacant land possible  should be planted. What could  not be eaten freah should be dried  and preserved for use in winter.  local Choir Oives  Successful Concert  Excellent Programme of Part  Songs and Solos  Great War Veterans'  Reception and Dance  To Provide Funds for Furnishing Club Room  Important Changes in Coining Campaign for  Not only,do the local hospital  and the Red X fundt benefit very  substantially from the concert  which was held Tuesday evening  in Knox Church, but the music loving public were treated to a most  enjoyable evening. The program  with the exception of two or three  solo* and violin selections consisted of choral music, a happy selection indeed of some of the old-time  favourite glees and part songs.  The training of the choir had been  in progress for some weeks under  the direction of Mr. H. Tod Boyd,  in itself a guarantee of real musical  excellence, and the performance  of the choir showed evidence  the greatest skirl and care.  The parts were well balanced  and in spite of the fact that Mr.  Boyd combined the duties of con.  ductor and accompanist, actual  conducting being limited to thi  more critical passages, there was  almost perfect unity of action. Such  apparently simple music as "The  Song of the Pedlar" and "Who Will  O'er the Down* so Free," are in  reality a aevere teat of a choir'*  ability, but they were admirably  rendered.  Mr. Drury Pryce has been so  often praised for his wonderful  ���kill with the violin, that it is possibly superfluous to say more than  that his playing was one of the  features of the evening. Special  mention however should be made  of the piece he had selected for  the second part, which was an original composition by Mr. Tod  Boyd, "A Serenade." Though  ahort the number was most pleasing and effective, and received a  tremendous ovation.  There were three soloists, Mrs.  Hayman, with "Happy Song," a  truly happy and appiopriate contribution which was loudly encored ; Mrs. Trenwith with "Land of  Hope and Glory," and Mrs. Braden  with "When You Come Back." the  latter responding to an encore with  the new popular wartime song, "In  Flanders Fields."  The whole concert was a great  success musically, and it will be  n oted with peasure lhat it is the  intention to repeat next Tuesday  evening, affording those who were  unable to attend an opportunity to  heer what was undoubtedly one of  the best concerts ever given in Kelowna.  After vthe concert through the  kind hospitality, of the ladies of the  church the choir were supplied  with supper in the adjoining schoolroom.  The proceeds from last Tuesday's concert were in the neighborhood of $190 to be divided between the hospital and Red X.  Next Tuesday's concert is for the  joint benefit of the Patriotic Fund  and the local War Veterans' Fund.  The Kelowna Great War Veterans haVe organized a reception  and dance to be held in the Morri-  aon Hall on Thursday next. April  25th, when the B.C. Dance Orchestra of Vernon, are- to attend and  furnish the music.  The Great War Veterans have  formed an association, and desire  to furnish a club room and dormitory in Kelowna on a permanent  basis.' ' Already a number of men  have returned, some, of course, to  their homes, but others who are  foot-loose require to rest up, and  accommodation is necessary. A  of j start must be made now, and as  the association grows, as it will, to  hundreds, and visiting members  from associations in other towns  drop in, larger provision will be  necessary.  The occasion is unique, and  there is no doubt that residents of  Kelowna and district will recognize  the opportunity afforded and show  in no half-hearted manner what  they feel towards those who have  done their bit and received honorable discharge as now unfit to serve  us further.  Contributions of food suitable  for the supper will be gladly received if you will communicate with  the organizing secretary, Mr. H. G.  M. Wilson, at his office next door  to the Post Office. Tickets 75 cents  each, including supper, may also  be obtained from him or at Crawford's store. Mesdames J. C. Richards and R. W. Butler have kindly  undertaken the arrangements for  supper.  Rutland News  A very interesting Red Cross  meeting of the Women's Institute  was held on April I Ith in the  schoolhouse. After the regular  business was finished, a short musical programme was given: Miss  Edna Magee, Miss Amy Fleming  and Mrs. E. Mugford rendered  vocal solos, and Mrs. B. Pelch  played pianoforte selections; Miss  L. Craig gave a reading on Red  Cross work in France. Mesdames  Leithead and Fleming served af.  ternoon tea for the benefit of our  Red Cross Material Fund, the sum  of $5 being raised. A collection  was also taken up for Rutland's  adopted prisoner of war (Duncan  Stewart), which amounted to $6.85.  Lance-corp. W. Gay who has  been home on a short furlough, returned to Vancouver Monday.  Mrs. Gsy accompanied him as far  Vernon where she will spend a  week visiting Mrs. Vance at the  Methodist parsonage.  The Presbyterians gave a social  last Friday evening to say farewell  to Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Johnston  An unfortunate mishap occurred  at the close of the evening when,  upon leaving the church, Mr*. Fitzpatrick slipped down the steps  and sustained a slight injury to her  spine.  Still another fruit packing and  shipping firm is to enter the field  this season in Kelowna,' a new  warehouse building having just  been commenced near the car track  for the uae of Harvey, Duggan, 6c  Davies. Last year the firm disposed of several carloads of produce,  and the fact that they have been  approached from many quarters  by bo'h buyers and growers has  encouraged them to take the present step.  School Curriculum  Result of  Recent  Conference  of Educationists  ���  Hon. J. D. MacLean, minister of  education, announced Tuesday, at  Victoria, that the changes in the  high school curriculum foreshadowed by the recommendations of the  recent conference of educationalists will be brought into effect by  regulation immediately and will  apply at the commencement of the  next school term. The result will  be the elimination from the high  school course of the formal study  of English grammar; the linclusion  of a more detailed study of Canadian history, as well as the study  of civics.  The new regulations will make  it compulsory to study only one  foreign language, instead of two,  as heretofore. It will be made possible foi the high school course to  be covered in either three dr four  years as desired.  NO MORE EXAMINATIONS  Other change: that will go into  effect under the new arrangement  apply to public schools and will  provide lor the elimination of written examinations for entrance into  the high school, applying specifically to students who are attending  the former in the larger cities. The  pupils affected will in future be  promoted on the recommendation  of the principal of the public school  and thus his entry into the higher  institution will not be barred by  failure on a technicality ; but rather  will his general standard be a guide  to the principal as to his merit for  promotion. On the other hand,  on faiiure of the decision of the  principal to meet the wishes of the  pupil or parent, the pupil will be  permitted to take his written examination as formerly.  lu connection with this very important departure from the school  system of the province, the minister states that if the new plan is  found capable of satisfactory working, it will be extended to the  smaller towns and the outlying districts of the province.  Referring to the night school  branch of the department's activities, the minister says that no less  than 118 classes are being conduct-  r. M. C. JL Funds  Local Plan is Part Big Nationwide Drive Early in May  For the purpose of making preliminary arrangements for a big  campaign to raise funds for military Y.M.C.A work a meeting was  called together last Friday in the  Board of Trade room by the Rev.  H. G. Estabrook, who ha* charge  of the canvassing movement in  this part of the province.  The campaign, which takes place  Map 7th, 6th and 9th, is a nationwide one and aims to raise throughout the Dominion the sum of two  and a quarter million dollars for  this great work amongst the soldiers. B. C's portion of thi* it is  hoped will reach $100,000, and to  do her share Kelowna must raise  not less than $2,500.  It is felt that once the people of  thi* district can be made to realize  the enormous value of the work  being done by the Y.M.C.A. organ,  ization in France and elsewhere,  that this objective will be easily  reached if not exceeded. Information is being prepared at headquarters in readiness for the campaign and literature will be freely  distributed.  Details of the campaign for Kelowna have not yet been worked  out, but a working committee has  been organized with Mr. L. V.  Rogers as chairman, Rev. D. E.  Braden, sec, Mr. P. DuMoulin aa  trees., and Messrs. J. Ball and J. B.  Knowles as members of the executive.  A vigorous advertising campaign  will be conducted and sub-committees appointed to handle every  detail of the work.  It is expected that Lieut. Whittaker, the well-known Vancouver  preacher who has earned the soubriquet of "the fighting parson,"  will address meetings in the near  future. Mr. L. V.

Fight with Food  A Call to the Whole Dominion for the Utmost  Effort to Produce Food for our  Soldiers and Allies  OUR ALLIES  are  i  desperately short of  food. In the midst of plenty ourselves we  must face the stern reality of England on  shorter'rations than she has been for over a  hundred years, and France with only three days'  food reserve. Even from their present small  supplies they are saving Italy from collapse  through hunger.  Since shipping must be concentrated on the shortest  routes, Canada and the United States must continue to  be practically the only source of supply.  Canada must provide wheat and meat in increasing  quantities to meet a situation that imperils the issues of  the war.  Men who can be spared for work on the farms must  serve in this way. Those who are obliged to remain in  the city or town can at least raise vegetables in their  gardens or on vacant lots.  Every effort wiU be made to see that labor is forthcoming to harvest the maximum crops that farmers can  produce.  An increased spring acreage in wheat and other grain  Is vitally needed.  Stock raisers are asked to provide the greatest possible  production of meat, especially pork.  Starvation   is   threatening   our   Allies.   Everyone   in  Canada must fight by doing his or her utmost to pro  stoce and to conserve food.

F. S.  Barnard, has addressed a letter to  the local secretary, in which he  states that the main reason why it  is preferable for the Patriotic?und  to be raised and operated in a voluntary way, rather than as an official department*of the government.  As s voluntary movement it is pro-  bablv fifty per cent, cheaper, and  its resulting flexibility makes it of  much more real and personal service to those whom it is sought to  serve.    The letter is as follows: ���  " Upon reviewing the recordp of  contributions received through (he  provincial branch of the Canadian  Patriotic Fund, I have felt that  special acknowledgment should  be made to a number of places in  this province.  While the contributions from  the Kelowna district have not been  so large as they have from many  other similar points, still the amount  sent in, to the end of February���  $6,856.64���is a substantial one. 1  feel quite sure that the time will  come when every man who has  contributed anything toward that  amount will feel that he has been  well repaid.  The Patriotic Fund has not only  made it possible for many men to  enlist in order to serve their country in this great war, but if has  been of vast assistance to the Federal Government who require all  the resources they can possibly  raise for the active prosecution of  the war. Monev raised through  channels of this kind assists tremendously in conserving the country's resources, and conservatii n is  he crying need of the hour.  As has been frequently pointed  out that, what the Canadian Patriotic Fund is able to do fortweive  million dollars per annum, would  cost the government double that  amount. Obviously, ihe difference  would be that much money wasted.  In addition, the Patriotic Fund is  able to, and does render great services to dependents, many of whom  are not capable of looking afler  their own business interests. The  Fund also acts in an advisory capacity for the Militia Department  in connection with the payment of  separation allowances, pensions,  &c. The organization is so complete, covering lhe entire Dominion, that serious delays are eliminated and information is readily  obtained which, to Government  officials, would be a most difficult  and expensive operation.  ' hile thanking your committee  and the contributors in your town  for what they have done in the  past, I desire to take this opportunity of again appealing for a continuation of the same generous  support.  ' So long as we are at war, it will  be necessary, if we are to succeed,  that every individual shall do his  or her utmost to assist the government and the army and navy in  the tremendous undertaking in  which they are engaged for the  liberty ��� nd freedom of the world.  I shall be very glad if, when you  have had an opportunity of placing this letter before your committee, you will let me have a reply  as to the prospects and probable  amount which may bo\expected  from your diatrict for the current  year. Yours very truly,  F. S. BARNARD,  Licut.-Gov.,  Chairman Provincial Branch.  Telis of the Work  of ioe T  To those who are interested in  development of the nation's manhood, it must be a source of great  satisfaction to observe the efficient  service conducted among the Canadian Expeditionary and home  service forces by the Young Men's  Christian Association. So important has become the work of the  "Y" secretaries and of such effect  is tlreir influence upon the morale  of the men, that everywhere, in al)  warring nations, the khaki officials  of, the international organization  are received with open arms and  every possible facility is provided  for the carrying-on of the work.  Army and navy officers have been  very generous in writing unsolicited letters telling of the faithful service rendered by the "Y" officers,  bul the men themselves are perhaps  in a better position to recite the de.  tails of this service as is instanced  by the following which has just  been received in Vancouver:���  I am not going to tell you what  the Y.M.C.A. did for us all overseas, because that is too well known  but 1 do want to tell vou what the  Association has done for me and  is doing for other returned men  here in Canada. To make my  slory complete I'll begin from the  time we landed in Quebec ; as that  will stand as the 'start of the jaunt.'  When we were put off at Quebec  Cily, Capt. Jones and the other  Y.M.C.A. officers at that pott met  us and saw that we had proper  accommodations allotted to us, and  just as soon as possible afterwards  we were shown the sights-in and  around Quebec City in automobiles,  were well fed, taken to see a show,  and returned in better shape, physically and every other way, than  when we left. I'd just like to say  that Mr. W. H. Wiggs, pf Quebec,  helped a whole lot in seeing that  we were comfortable all the time.  Mr. Wiggs may not be what some  people term a Y secretary, but he  certainly is carrying on real Christian Association wotk.  "After we were through with our  'business' in Quebec, we were taken  to lhe train, on our way home.  Reading mailer, fruit and a few  'dainties' (believe me they were  dainties to most of us after the  army racket at the front) were  given to us ; and every possible  care was taken to see that we were  as 'homey' as could ,be.  "My destination was Toronto. It  really would not matter where 1  had landed because I would have  been accorded the same wonderful treatment, but I'll speak of my  own case as I know it the best.  When we pulled into the home  city, we were met by members of  the Military Service Committee  taken in nutos to the Red Triangle  Club (which by the way, is a long-  Lfelt necessity for the returned men)  where we had a good breakfast  (we landed in about 6:30 a.m.). a  clean up, a look over the building  and then we were taken (those of  us who lived here) to our homes  in cars. Not a single sou did it  cost any of us. The men who were  going out again to other points  were taken care of by the Red Triangle people until train time, when  they were driven to the station and  seen safely on board���adequately  supplied with reading matter and  a snack' in case of necessity.  "Had the Y.M.C.A. endeavour  to help the returned' men stopped  there I'd have admitted they were  doing fine, but this was not the  case. Even though I had not been  a Y man before going overseas I  Arar given a membership card, entitling me to free use of the Association buildings (wherever I might  happen to be) aa long as I was in  uniform, and after I got out of  khaki I was given a free membership to Central for six months. I  could have had a year if I'd wanted it.  "But, they didn't stop here. No  sooner was I out of the khaki uniform than the Y.M.C.A. located a  position for me. I am still in this  position, by the way, and if there  is a more welcome member of the  Central Y.M.C.A. than I am, I have  vet to see him. 'Paid up member'  did vou ask? You ate right, I am  more than a paid up member. I  am what you might almost call a  special doubly paid up member���  and so are the rest of the returned  men at Central and the other Associations.  "My experience is not an isolated  instance of being looked after by  the Y.M.C.A. but I feel I'd like the  people to know that I appreciate  what has been done for me and  my comVades. My slogan has always been: Tell about the good  thinga'."  Orders for  Local  Scouts  "m MEPAosar  Kelowna Troop  Troop Tirst;  Self Last  Edited by Pioneer.

On  Wednesday we were only lacking  one of a perfect attendance and  that one was unavoidably absent.  There was also a good attendance  on Friday evening and on Saturday, but at the two latter parades  there were some absentees who  had no right to be absent.

Remember the tickets for the  concert will be given out on Wednesday.  Uniforms must  immediately be  gone   over   and   replenished and  made to look like new ones again.  a        s  .

Mr. Zimmerman besides being  the teller at the Bank of Mbntreal,  Summerland, is a married man  with a family of small children and  has also a fruit ranch to look after,  yet' he still finds time to be scoutmaster of the Summerland Troop���  and that reminds us: with Mi  Gordon, cub master, leaving town  at the end of June, we shall have  to look for some local gentleman  to take his place with the Cubs.  Mr. Bartholomew who has acted  as assistant cub master, will retain  his position, but cannot take the  position of cub master.  a a  a  .Several of the local young girls  are also very keen to form a troop  of Girl Guides but have as yet  been unable to find anyone to take  charge of their proposed troop.  We wish them every success in  their efforts and trust that a volunteer will soon come forward to  take them in hand.  Premier Oliver in the legislature  in response to questions asked by  W. J. Bowser, said the government  exercised no control over the  workmen's compensation board.  The board in being appointed was  given supreme powers and it came  under no department head in any  manner.
