Canada s Tied-Up R
(Third Article)
In all articles appearing in this coluiun, It Is sought to lie optimistic and
von.-uruetlvc, rattier than pessimistic and destructive, because only so can any
*;enice of real value to ihe coinmuniiy lie rendered. J laving in ihe previous
two articles on "Canada's Ticd-Up Resources" outlined the situation whicli
confronts every citizen and -lover of tins Dominion���and nn extremely critical
eiuiaiion ii unquestionably is���some attention should be devoted to finding a
solution, if, indeed, one can be found. But found it must be if Canada la
not to continue in the doldrums lor many years to come, cheated of the position among the nations of the world whicli Nature intended (through.the variety and abundance ol' its gifts) tins country to occupy.
The first essential to a solution is an awakening of the people of Canada
to a full realisation tof their country's present position in respect to its resources. A second, and equally important essential, is frankness and courage
on 'he part of public men of all parties in facing and grappling with tho problem con fronting Canada.
li is necessary-thai present shibboleths, pet policies, and partisan nostrums be completely scrapped and relegated t.o a forever buried past. Instead of coiUiuuing to waste time debating in just, what manner the-stable
.���an best be Joclced now ihat the horse is stolen, each interested citizen in Canada should unite wiih other interested citizens in an endeavor to, if possible,
recover the stolen horse. '      !
The battle for and against embargoes, or export duties, on pulp, wood and '
pulp, on watcrpowers and electric, energy, on nickel and other ores, is being1
waged with vigor. It is largely beside the mark. At best embargoes and.
export dip ies are but half measures and likely to result in reprisals. They |
do not go. to the basic root of the whole trouble, namely, that an enormous j
amount of Canada's natural resources have passed from Canadian ownership i
and control into foreign control, and tli.it control is being exercised to The dc-
.riuietit or Canada, checking development, employment, growth of population
and industry, and making full-prosperity,impossible.7..- .-.

The Text Explained and Illumined
The first foreign missionaries and
their dismissal service, verses 1-3.���In
the church at Antioch there were
many prophets and 'teachers, .chief
among whom was Barnabas. There
were also Symeon the Black, an African, no doubt;-Lucius of Cyrene, perhaps ono_of the original evangelists
who established the church at Antioch,
Acts 11.20; Manaen, the foster-
brother of Herod the. tetrarch; and
Saul, possibly the latest to join the
leaders ln Antioch. The Herod referred to here was Herod -Antlpas,
whoin Jesus described as a "fox,"
Lk. 13.32, son of Herod the Great.
According , lo Deissmann, "foster-
brother" was a court title, of honor,
like the phrase "tho friend of tlu.
king" used in the Old Testameuir It
is interesting to recall in. this con-,
nection that Joanna, the wife of
Chuzas, the steward of this same
Herod, was also a follower of Christ,
Lk. 8.3. ""
"In the days of the apostles, and as
long as Christianity was a' proscribed
religion, the body of th"o"'membership
of the Church consisted of the humbler and middle ranks of society. The
wealthy antl noble will'always be-
few in comparison with others in-the
Church, for this if for no other reason,
tl\at there are fewer of them" (Dr.
James Orr).
Speculate On Canada's
New Governor-General
Officials in London have already
formed definite views1 as- to tho (juali-
ficalions necessary for the Important
and responsible post of governor-gtn-
eral of Canada. The naiue of Prlnco
Henry is again being mentioned, nnd
it is noteworthy that he alone of all
the Princes was present with his august father when the latter opened
the new Cauadian building on Monday, June 29, while his interest in all
things Canadian has been patent for
some time past. One thing can be
definitly said with regard to the appointment, if-Canada has any particular predlctiots for any particular person they have only to explain their
preference in order to have it carried
into effect. It'is admitted that it will
be a diflicult task to find a man outside the royal family who is invested
wiiir suflicisnt prestige and influence
to "/make the , bonds" between the.
motherland tind 'Canada more secure.

Warren Harding Memorial   7
Statue to-be   Unveiled  at-Vancouver
I ti September
An International memorial ������which in
many ways Is unique, will be unveiled in Vancouver on September 17 next,
to perpetuate the remembrance of tho
late President Warren G. Harding's
visit to Canadian soil in July, 1923.
The unveiling will take place after the
international convention of Kiwanls
Clubs under whose auspices the memorial is being erected. Although tho
statue was first ordered to he built by
a committee acting on the initiative of
the Kiwanis Club_of Vancouver, tho
subscription list was open to clubs In*
the United States as well, with the
result that the objective of $35,000 was
soon ovcr-rsached and the United
States clubs insisted that they bear
tho entire expense, the amount subscribed by the Canadian clubs being
returned to them.
The memorial will mark an event
of which history offers no duplicate-
that of a United States president making an address on Canadian soil during    his    term of oflice..    President.
Harding.visited Vancouver for'a'few   .
hours on his way south"after visiting
Alaska in-July, 1923, and was given-
an imprcssivo reception.   His address,
in which he made an. eloquent plea for.
continued    friendship    between    the
English-speaking'peoples "and  practl-,
cally between Canada and-the Uuited
States, was listened io by over 20,000
people and  aroused considerable interest throughout the British Umpire.

Amazing Adventures
Of Captain Gardiner
Englishman   Acquitted  of   Fraud   Has
Had ThHIIIng  Career
These are some of the things done,
according to his.own .story, during an
adventurous life by Charles Alfred
.Gardiner. 5S, who was at tlie Old
Bailey, London,- found not guilty on
charges of obtaining a cheque for
��200,000 by\false pretences from the
Gardiner Shipbuilding and Engineering Company, Poole, Dorset, of whicli
he was director,, of publishing false
statements lo induce persons to be-,
come shareholders, and of perjury.;
After Captain Gardiner had given
evidence,.the jury stopped the case,
and he was found not guilty and.discharged.
. . Gardiner said tliat he laid all the
mines in Port. Arthur in the Russo-
Japanese war. In the Chilean revolution he was in command of the crew
of one of the, Chilean vessels, and in
tlie Boer war lie was iu command of 	
the Australian Bushmen.     Up to ISU J . f
he believed ho held the world's record j Admiral Sturdee s White Feather
as a divorcer staying under the water
9 hours and-22 minutes,
vDuring tho -the war he salved the
Oceauic (tlie White Star liner converted into an armed merchant cruiser, sunk off the north coast of Scotland in IDl'l) and commanded one of
the "Q" or mystery boats. He invented a locking system for mines
used against submarines and also Invented noi-Mittable subniaiine nets.

She Said He Was "Incorrigible"
By Marjorie Bradford, Social Service
Council of Canada
A woman brought her son into one
of our Canadian juvenile courts a
short time ago because, as she termed it, the boy was incorrigible. ITc
would not stay in school and was getting his parents into continual difficulty.
When the boy gave his side,of the
story to the judge he said that school
always gave him a headache.
The boy, on being examined by thc
court doctor, was discovered to be
totally blind in one eye with the sight
of the other already seriously .impaired. Aud this poor ignorant mother
thought he was "incorrigible." The
boy was immediately given treatment
which saved and even improved the
sight of his eye. If the condition had
been known in time the sight of his
other eye might also have been saved.
Of'24,000,000 school children iu the
United States, 6,000,000 are retarded
in their studies. And of those 6,000,-
000 retarded children,, 3,-000,000 are retarded because of defective eyesight.
It is estimated that defective eyesight,
among school children costs American
taxpayers $130,000,000 a year.
Similar figures for Canada are not
available but they are estimated to be
relatively the same. That is more
than S .per cent, of our Canadian
school'children.ar.t suffering under a
mental handicap because of defective
eyesight. I wonder how .maiiy' of
these children have been adjudged
stupid or "Incorrigible?"
Submerged Village Re-appears
Roofs  Of Swiss Houses Visible After
300 Years
After 300 years, a submerged Swiss
village in the upper valley of the Saa^
has ro-appeared, owing lo the low
level of the waters of Lake Autrona.
The original catastrophe was caused
by a landslip from the Monte PozzplI,
which destroyed 42 houses of the village of.Autrona Piana, together with
the inhabitants and their cattle. As
a resultspf the landslip.a lake was then
formed, but owing to the waters now
receding the'roofs of the old dwelling,
are again* visible.
