Dayton Beach, Fla.-Major H.
O. D. Seagrave, British racing car
expert, on Tuesday, set three unofficial world's records, driving his
huge 1000-horsepower car faster
than any other man had  done
before.    Seagrave sent   his  car
along at the astounding pace of
207.017 miles an hour down the
course,, after beating up the track
into a quartering head wind that
that threatened   instant  death.
The computed average time" for
the mile on the two runs was
203.841 miles an hour; 201.711 for
the kilometre and 203.616 for the
five kilometres.
"I'm satisfied.' Now we'll pack
up and go home," Major Seagrave
told K. Lee Guiness, companion
on the American trip and formerly one of Europe's foremost
drivers, when he found that a
broken brake shoe would prevent
his making a third run.
"You ought to be," Guiness replied.
The official record for one kilometre, held by Malcolm Campbell,
an Englishman, is -174.22 miles an
hour, for the mile 173.883. This
record was made in Wales.
Major Seagrave had established
an official American record last
Thursday, when he pounded up
the course at a rate of 166.51
miles an hour. This beat Tommy
Milton's 156.04 mark set in 1920

Since the year 1901, when a small group of fanners under llie leadership
���of W. It.. Motherwell, now Dominion Minister o[ Agriculture, met in tlio
town of. indiau Head and organized the Territorial Grain' Growers'
Association, the plan of applying lhc piunciples of co-operation to ihc
���solution of problems peculiar (o Lhe West has fomd increasing favor with
bolh peop'e antl governments until today it has ccuie to hc recognized as
thc most effective means of righting many wrong.1, and removing grievances from wliich (lie great army of producers suffere.:.
At the beginning of the present century people were inclined to look
lo Government Ownership as the only way out of lhe economic difficulties
wiih wliich they were confronted. The most serious problems were in relation (o the marketing of grain, and the first great achievement of Hie
'Territorial Grain Growers' Association was securing Lhc passage of the
Canada Grain Act, with its loading platform feature, which had tlie effect
���of breaking lho old elevator monopoly.
That in ilself was not sufliciont, and an agitation was begun for Government owned ancl operated grain elevators. This was given a trial in
Manitoba, but was rejected in Saskatchewan in favor of a system of co-
���operativo elevators, owned and operated by the farmers themselves through
a joint, stock company backed with financial guarantees by tlie Government.
'Tlie Goyfernmeul owned system in Manitoba was not a success, and the
elevators Lhere were soon leased to a farmers' organization. The Saskatchewan Co-operative Elevator Co.was a'huge success and in a comparatively
few years became the greatest grain handling concern in tho world.
Prom that time onward co-operation became a word to conjure with
throughout Western Canada. Co-operative creameries, co-operative
stockyards, co-operative hail insurance, co-operative wool growers'
associations, quickly followed. The : Grain Growers' Association was
���duplicated in Manitoba and Alberta aud spread Lo Ontario. Their forces
were then united in the Canadian Council of Agriculture. Co-operalion
broughl unity and in unity the producers of Lhe West found strength.
There yel remained one great weakness in the economic condition of
the West. The increasingly.large grain crops of thc country were dumped
���on thc market al one time, glutting it, breaking prices below a profitable
level to the producer. The seemingly impossible task of,uniting the farmers
in one great co-operative enterprise to handle all their wheat and to market
it in an orderly and scientific manner was undoraken through lho organization of Wheal Pools. It succeeded, and the Provincial Pools organized
���one central selling agency. The result is-.common knowledge today, and, the
wheal pools havc been followed by Coarse Grain pools, TOgg and Poultry
pools, Livestock pools, Dairy pools.     '
Truly enormous as have been the material gains to tho producers of the
West througli this general acceptance of the principles or co-operation,
resulting, as it has, in more orderly marketing, more orderly financing, in
greater contentment all round, it is not altogether wide of the mark to say
that even more significant aiul permanent effects have resulted.
The. underlying principle of co-operation is that the strong shall help thc
weak, and lhat in the union of all.still grealer strength will be found. No
member of a wheat pool, however large his resources, regardless of the size
of his 'crop, irrespective * of. his financial strength, will realize the top price
Will Not Tour Dominion
Prince Intends Going Direct to Ranch
From Ottawa
That the Prince of Wales would not
make a general tour of the country
on his next visit to Canada, but proceed direct to Ottawa and thence to
his ranch in Albera, was thef statement made by Pi of. W. Carlyle, manager of the prince's ranch, who arrived at St. John on the steamship
Montclaire. While nolhing definitely
had been settled, thc Prince, accompanied by Premier Stanley Baldwin
would probably arrive in Canada next
August, tho professor said.
Professor Carlyle had been on a
regular visit to England to confer
with the" Prince on mailers pertaining to the ranch.
The advisability of importing additional stock for the ranch was discussed bul nothing decided as it was
impossible to export cattle from England at Lhe present time owing to ihe

Whether it.is fully realized or not by even the most enthusiastic pool
tulvocae, the foct remains that in the development of this spirit of cooperation, and in the application of co-operative principles lo the everyday

an educational movement of outstanding importance is'.being fostered.

And the you'-h of today is being brought up in this atmosphere of cooperation. It is influencing the whole thought and-outlook of the boys and

Growth of Power Development

Being Developed on Winnipeg
By the close of the present year
planls with, a capacily ot over a quar-
Ler of a million horse-power of hydroelectric energy will bc installed on
the Winnipeg River, Manitoba���a remarkable growth in twenty years.
When the river is fully developed
about three times this amount of
power will be available, so that the
city oT Winnipeg and district can
hope to enjoy the advantages of low-
cosi power for some time lo come bo-
fore the market having absorbed all

River power from an almost purely
urban market, lo large individual outside ���- industries, the co-operation cf
otherwise competing interests, and
finally the remarkable growth of the

Pensions at Last
(Vancouver Province, March 25th)
Nothing that has happened in the red
chamber at Ottawa for a longtime past
was so interesting or important for
British Columbia as what was done
there yesterday, for by that action
British Columbia will get old age
pensions this year.
"The,Setiate has passed the Dominion
Old Age Pensions Bill, and it awaits
only the formality of royal assent to
become the law of Canada. By the
terms of the act passed by our Legislature last month, it requires only the
action of the provincial executive to
make old- age pensions operative in
this province. There is not the. least
reason to doubt lhat the royal assent
will be given and that the Oliver government will redecm-its promises, Ancl
as to tlicquestion -cf when, we have
the word of Hon. Minister of Finance
MacLean that if Parliament at Oltawa
passed the Old Age Pensions Act at
this session, the Oliver government
would see that the provincial act would
become operative this year.
For the rest of Canada outside British Columbia the action of the Senate
-yesterday has an interest rather more
academic. The Dominion act is a contingent measure. ' There it is, as far
as the provinces are concerned, take it
or leave it���a promise by the Dominion
to pay one-half of a maximum pension
of S20a month, providing the province
will pay the other half.
But if British Columbia is chiefly and
most practically concerned with what
the Senate did "yesterday, there is no
reason to think that British Columbia
will be left alone in the field of old age
pensions. The measure is admittedly
tentative ancl inadequate, but . the
-Senate, probably-no_more_ friendly_at.
heart this year than last, did not dare
to reject it. The Senate, in fact, lost a
fine chance on getting on better terms
with the people of- Canada when it did
not amend the measure sent "up from
the House of Commons, so as to make
it more generous and less dependent
upon the co-operation of the provinces.
However, such as it is, there is an old
age pensions law on the statute books
of Canada���and the provinces, sootier
or later, will have to co-operate. It
will be interesting to see which of them
will be the first to follow the example
of British Columbia.
What, then, under these conditions,
is to be the nature and scope of old age
pensions in British Columbia? Persons eligible for the pension must be
70 years of age, citizens of Canada,
resident twenty years in Canada and
five in the province. The maximum
pension will be S20 a month. Persons
in private receipt of ��365 a year will
not be eligible. Persons in private receipt of [an income less than $20 a
month will receive a sufficient pension
to make np their total annual income
to S365 if this can be done without exceeding the maximum pension of $20 a
month. The Dominion Government is
to pay half the pension, the Provincial
Government the other half. A. pensioner of British Columbia going to
another province where there is no old
age, pension scheme will lose the provincial half of his pension. ���'���':
It is obvious from this rough ���sum-
mary that the practical working out of
co-operation between . the Dominion
and the province in the payment of old
age pensions is~going to present some
diffiulties. For lhe moment, it is more
interesting to enquire where Dr. Mac-
Lean is going to get the money from
for old age pensions this year in British Columbia.. It is estimated that it
will cost us 31,250,000 this year; and
the money was not voted by the Legislature. However, the:Oliver government has promised to do it, and it will
certainly be done. The Oliver govern-
. merit is not overlooking the political
aspect of anything, 'these-'hard; times;
and the political aspect of old age pensions in'British Columbia -is that; old
age pensions are mighty good politics.
Very, very sad, sir," said the
doctor, "I greatly regret to tell
you your wife's mind is completely gone." ��� .".'_������:,���
. "Well, I'm not surprised, Dec,'
returned the husband. /"She's
been giving me a piece of it every
day for the last fifteen years.
Immigration to Canada in the ten
months of the fiscal year ending-
January 31st, amounted to 118,199,
compared with 76,439 for the same
period of 1925-6. This is an increase of 55 per cent. January immigration amounted to 4,164, compared with 2,324 for the preceding
January, a gain of 79 per cent. Of
this immigration 899 were British,
905 from the United States and 2,360
from other countries. During January 2,297 Canadians who had gone
to the United States with the intention of remaining permanently returned to Canada, making a total of
50,898 so returned for the ten
months of the fiscal year.
The Hon. William D. Euler, Minister of Customs and Excise, announces that the present period of
30 days of free entry into Canada
of United States motor tourists on
a permit will be extended to 90 days,
to conform with the privilege now
granted by the United States authorities, who admit Canadian cars
carrying motor tourists free into
that country for 90 days. The only
difference will be that the Canadian
permit will 'not initially be for 90
days, but for a first and second 30-
tlay extension, if and when the tourists can show bona-fides and recommendation from reputable associations .of automobilists in the United
Slates. A larger tourist movement
in Canada is expected to result from
lhe change.
