Our Natural Resources And
Trie Cost Or   Production
Hi ilu; course uf one ot tlio series of address*.1; made by him during his.
(our oi' Western Canada, Premier Mackenzie King said: "Tho only way to
bolvo problems is to reduce, if possible, the com of production���iho cost or
living."
No ono is likely to talc1 exception to this statement except, that many
people will say that tlio (nullifying words, "if possible."���should bo eliminated.
Few things an- impossible of achievement if men are. determined in their
efforts to reach any desired <m6. So far as bringing about, a reduction in
ttie tu,"U of production in Canada, and therefore in the cost of living, there
can be no .jue.siion but Hint it is possible.     As Rotarians say, it can be done.
But it is not going to be done il' such a large percentage of Canadian
lnamii'aeuiri'r.i continue to pursue their present policy of importing enormous
'quantities: of raw materials, or semi-manufactured articles, for use in tholv
finished products, and which could be obtained froni Canada's own great
wealth of natural resources and the whole, process of manufacture carried out
in Canada instead of only a part of it.
Canada's adverse balance of trade with the United States is largely made
up of importations by Canadian manufacturers of materials aud supplies which
��� could be obtained and produced within Canada. Too many Canadian manufacturers prefer to follow the "easy way" of importation instead of utilizing
a portion of their own capital in the development for tise of the natural ro-
.sources of this Dominion.     As a result both the cost, of production and of living is too high.
And then these finished products ot Canadian factories, containing a largo
percentage in many instances of United States materials, are protected by
heavy Customs duties against competition by similar articles made wholly
In the United Slates. At the same time hundreds of these factories, Cana-
���dian so-called, because they are located on Canadian soil, are nothing but
branch factories of United States concerns erected on this side of the line in
order to escape payment of Customs duties and to secure the benefits ol: ihe
Canadian 'Preferential Tariff in Empire markets, ln oilier words, in the. case
of hundreds of factories Canadian citizens are paying- abnormally high prices
because Of a Customs tariff maintained to protect these United States offshoots irom their parent concerns across tlie line.
Costs of production and of'living iu Canada will begin to tumble when
Canada begins io -make full uso of its own natural resources, but not Until
then. ... ('';_r__idiaivs7c_ini)bl expect..lower -cost's so.' long as their1:own.-jiianufac-,'

New British Plane
Best Ever Built
Two   Years   Ahead   of   Other   Nations
Says Expert
"1 have been astounded at the re- i
suit of the two-seater light aeroplane
competition," said a member of the
air council and one of the greatest
aviation experts in lSugland. 'Tn this
branch of aviation we are two years
ahead of any other nation."
"No mure efficient aeroplane than
the Beardmore aeroplane (which Avon
the chief prize) has ever left tlie
earth," staled 1.1.-Col. \V. A. liiis tow,
the aeronautical consulting engineer,
who ki'pt tiie records of the competitions.
"Margin of speed ls a very good |
standard of eiliciency in an aeroplane. I
and this machine has a very wide;
margin. It can fly at about DO miles j
an hour. It can rise froni tiie ground!
quickly and pull up slowly.
"With a two-gallon fin of petrol a
light aeroplane "will take two people
from London to Eastbourne in au
hour."

The real danger is that when the

removed the sensitivq flesh is exposcd-to
tho inflammatory action of the air and
to the poisonous influence of germs and
dirt.     The  first   thing  to
AVERT COMPLICATIONS
is to coat the flesh over witli a thin
layer of Zam-Buk, -which has great
antiseptic, purifying anifhealing powers.
Burns and scalds should be treated and

Socialist Fallacies
Killing of Individual . Incentive and
Initiation Is Bad For Everyone .
The ridiculous notign. of reducing
everyone to a duli dead, level must be
abandoned. Allowancemust be made
for special and. superior, ability in enterprise, otherwise ���, the incentive
which forms the very liferblood of industry would be absent. , Workers
must admit that the most successful ot
industrial enterprises,-."from the point
of vIcav of the employee as well as that
of the employer arc those conducted
by men who, in adding to their own
wealth, add also to wealth of others.
If individual incentive and initiative
wero discouraged, as would be the
case by preventing these qualities
from being rewarded, which is in accordance with the doctrines preached
by some Labor extremists', the workers themselves-would suffer the most.
The man who makes a success of business makes a success of it for those he
employs as well us for himself.���Adelaide Chronicle. -.."-

. Views . About Jesus, verses 31, 14.
Jesus and his disciples had journey-"
ed as far as the neighborhood of
Ctesarea PhilippI when he suddenly
asked them,, "Who do men say that the
Son of Man is?" As recorded by
Mark and Luke," tho question * was,
"Who do men say that I am?" It: Is
not thought that'the phrase "The Son
of man" was associated in the popular
mind with the Idea of tho Messiah.
Had it been, Jesus would not havo
used it as He did early in Ills ministry. Jesus here used it, seemingly,
to keep the question as to who He
was undecided. The disciples answered that some thought he waa
John tho Baptist (as Herod said, Mt.
14.2); some, that ho was Elijah; and
others,' Jeremiah or. some other of tho
prophets. "Did you ever think of the
vast' difference there i.s between the
characters of Elijah and Jeremiah?"
questions Dr. G. li. Morrison. "The
ono is ardent, enthusiastic, fierce
sometimes. The other is tho ���prophet
of the tender heart and tears. And
the remarkable thing is that the common people should have taken these
types, which are so wide apart, and
should' have found In both the character of Christ. In other words, the
impression which . Jesus mado -was
that of a. complex, inclusive personality. You could not exhaust him by
a single prophet. It took the range
of the greatest to portray His character." Dr. Morrison then devotes a
chapter of one of his books to pointing
out qualities of different natures wliich

Breaking in one hundred wild
horses without a moment's notice
was the unexpected taek which
confronted "The Light That
Failed" company which George
Melford took to Guadalupe in
Northern California to make dramatic desert scenes for his Paramount
production of Rudyard Kipling'B
story, which comes to the Greenwood Theatre on Saturday, Nov.
15th. Desert warriors were to ride
these horses in attacking the
isolated outpost of British soldiery.
When it was time to saddle the
horses it was found that practically
all of them were unbroken. British
ex-cavalry men who were present
for the battle scenes were assigned
to ride the wild horses.
Some interesting facts were made
public by E. J. BeUeisJe, superintendent of the fish and game department of the Province of Quebec,
when in Montreal recently. The
province is now teeming wV.h wild
life, he says, mainly because of it3
conservation policy, whereby preserves are rented to fish and carao
clubs on the understanding that
they appoint wardens. There are
500 such clubs employing a total of
over 1,000 wardens.
The Trans-Canada Limited, crack

"Russia will never again rival Canada as a wheat exporter, according to L. W. Lyde, Professor of
Geography at. London (England)
University. He believes that grain
growing in future lies with the
Canadian .farmer. Russia cannot
properly supply its own needs. Prewar export of wheat was purely artificial, drawn, not from a natural
surplus, but from the needs of a
very poor and ignorant peasantry.

No Telephone Number
Can Be Almost Correct
Wheti'a telephone number is wrong it is wrong! A mistake in a single
numeral means the calling of the wrong party, with consequent annoyance for
both people concerned. Memories play tricks and special telephone lists become obsolete. The best way to ensure yourself good service is to depend
upon neither of these aids but to consult tbe directory -for the correct number,
and then be sure that the operator repeats it correctly.
