KETTLE VALLEY CLUB GOLFERS
WIN AT GRAND FORKS
Members of the Kettle Valley Golf
Club, which included Greenwoodites,
went over the hill on Sunday to play
an interclub match with the ��� Grand
Forks Club and won 6 matches out of
a total of 8. Play was fairly even in
most cases although *'the visitors
found the "uplands" course more difficult to negotiate than their own. The
' "Teeing up" practice in force at Grand
Forks was much appreciated and it was
felt that until our own links are in
better shape that resort'to this practice
at Kettle Valley would be a good move.
The Grand Forks members have
made a wonderful improvement to
their fairways and the greens are especially in fine condition���the club
house is much improved also and is so
arranged that a number can sit down
for lunch. Refreshments were served
by the Grand Forks ladies and members
of the Executive and their excellence
was much appreciated by all those who
were fortunate to attend.
It is to be hoped that a return match
can be arranged for at Kettle Valley
,011 the 12th inst as interclub matches
'arouse interest in the*game and are of
great value to players in improving
their game. An effort should also be
made to have as many lady players as
possible participate on this occasion.
The result follows:

The stage decqrations and settings
were very attractive.   The costumes of.
the Bell Hops and partners, in red and
black, were very pleasing to the eye.
From the opening number until the
last item the large crowd showed appreciation by much applause.
The first selection was a chorus entitled "Funny Melody" by the Bell
Hops. This was a very fitting opening
number.
Miss Harris sang "Lilac Time" and
for an encore "I Love You Truly";
also "By the Waters of Minnatonka"
and "Melisande." Her pleasing presence and sweet singing charmed her
audience.
Ted Whiting taking the lead in the
song "Sweethearts on Parade," was well
received.

with her recitation "School Days", as
did Mrs. Pannell in the "Sailor Song"
assisted by Juan Puddy on the guitar.
The song "Fall Down and Go Boom"
was a very popular selection and caused
much laughter. Eileen Pannell and'
Edith Hawkes sang the first verse, Mrs.
-Beckett and Juan Puddy the second
and Mayneeri Bush and May Sharp the
third.
Mrs. Dyer's singing of "Chiquita" and
"Romano" pleased her listeners. Juan
Puddy accompanied on the guitar.
"The Hired Man" was a very amusing
play and Mrs. Oscar Johnson as the
man gave her employer (Mrs. Pannell)
much trouble and amusement, but in
the end found out, after threatening to
fire him, the proper man for the job.
The Misses Mayneen Bush and May
Sharp scored a fine success in their
singing of "You Tell Me You Dreams
and , I'll Tell You Mine." They responded to an encore with "I Don't
Care."
Juan Puddy was the life of the con-
: cert and when he played the guitar and
sang "Gay Caballero" literally brought
down the house. He was called on for
an encore.
'- The ''farce entitled*-'.'Mrs. -Busby's
Pink Tea" was exceedingly well received. Miss Brereton as Mrs. Busby
ably carried out her very difficult role.
She had trouble in getting Mr. Busby
(Ted Whiting) to stay home and help
entertain the invited guests. He consented after much coaxing but received
a bawling out from Mrs. Busby for getting friendly with a very fascinating
widow. (Mrs. Beckett).

they can do usually, is to deprive the
thistles of foliage, ancl by repeated application thus starve the rootstocks, a
process more satisfactorily accomplished under field conditions, by tillage
methods. Other tests to be conducted
this season may justify a better word
concerning one' promising material.
IMPORTANCE OF
THINNING VEGETABLES
CONTROL OF CANADA THISTLE
o A weed set well established as is
Canada thistle, will not be exterminated by any; means at present in sight,
but-a reasonable measure of control is
both possible and economically sound.
"TffiFccritroirfo^itF^
attention to two things���the seeding
habit and the rooting habit' of the
plant. While the latter is receiving
suitable attention in the fields, the
former must be watched beyond their
borders.
The seed menace requires that' all
stragglers in waste places, along roadsides, etc., be destroyed before maturity,
by cutting, salting and pasturing, plowing under, or otherwise. Each neighboring farmermust be--likewise- concerned; a state of things which inspection under provincial weed laws is intended to bring about. Each farmer,
moreover, must avail himself of all the
protection in* the matter of seed purchases, that the-Seeds Act of Canada
offers. No amount of work performed
in the fields, will keep; them free of
Canada thistle, while its exceptional
facilities for seed dispersal are being
ignored. u     .   *
Field infestations "themselves are ordinarily best dealt with by the method
of starvation. By the time a rotation
of crops has come around to hay, following grain, thistles will have reached
their maximum recovery from previous suppression. If the choice of hay
crop, and its stand is such as to make
a good smother crop, this is the first
step. Legumes, especially alfalfa and
sweet clover, make, a heavy cover. Thcy
,are removed in ample time to forestall
seeding of the thistles, and to allow a
long period of after-harvest fallowing.
As soon as thistles begin to show after
moving, the ground is plowed, and,
through the balance of the season, the
underground parts are kept deprived
of nourishment from the foliage, by
use of the broad-shared cultivator. A
somewhat "deeper plowing late in the
fall is a good finish to the season's
" work; and a cultivated crop the following year gives further opportunity to
keep.the foe at bay.
It will be seen. that only the livestock or mixed farmer can make full
use of the methods outlined. The crux
of the matter is that only to the extent
that the straight grain farmer can
modify his practise in this direction,
can hc hope for much success in combatting a weed so well at' home in a
grain crop. -   ..
Sprays ancl other chemical expedients
that have been experimented with may
yet provide additional offensives for use
on small areas; but experience at the
Dominion Experimental Farm* has not
proved them generally economical. All > Answers.
7 7'7 (Experimental Farms Note) ���
.Beginners in vegetable gardening are
almost, sure * to make the mistake not
only of sowing seed too thickly, but
also of leaving the plants too thick
in the row. A very large amount
oi" seed-is wasted each year because of
this ancl failure to have plants develop
properly is another result of more con-,
sequence tb thc sower of the sseeds
than the waste' of seed. Thinning of
all vegetables is desirable as soon as

i Listen, my children, ancl you shall
hear what makes our weather at present so queer. Just three weeks ago, or
may be t'was four, thcy opened to traffic the Great Northern bore. The very
next clay, as perhaps you recall, the
doggone thermometer started to fall!
The wind from the East, it started to
blow, and first we had frost and next
we had snow. It snowed and it froze
and the mornings were raw. We're
waiting and hoping, but still there's no
thaw. There must be a reason behind
it, no doubt, and so, while I shivered, I
figured it out.
That hole through the mountain is
causing a draft like breezes that sweep
through a dumb-waiter shaft. The
wind from Montana thcy sweep
through thc bore, ancl so we are frozen
as never before, Our coal piles-are
shrinking;, our faucets won't run, and
all are complaining, yet nothing is
done!
Of course the new tunnel, it fills a
great need. It cuts down the mileage,
increases thc. speed. But may wc suggest as a well-meaning friend thcy
hang up a storm door, at least on/this
end? ��� And may we suggest to the railroading crew, they close it1 behind them
when they have passed through. ���
. And early next summer, - w h e n
heavens are fair, we'll ask- that the
storm door be taken from there..* And
thus in the Inland, where folks often
roast, they'll ' all be refreshed- by a
breeze from the Coast!���The Seattle

'Foundation of National Culture
Two new Canadians from Roumanln demonstrate the art of weaving at Regina.
Those who have in the'past regarded tho New Canadians from
Europe as hewers of wood and drawers of water must, after tho recent
demonstrations at tlie Great West Festival at Regina, admit that these
peoples have, wiih their native ar1s,-de<idedly enhanced the cultural
wealth of the country of their adoption. J. Murray Gibbon, who
sponsored the festival under the auspices of the Canadian Pacific Railway, even g--cs so far as to say that Saskatchewan and the other prairie
provinces have within their borders the foundation of a National culture
finer than tliat of any other nation on earth. _ To this foundation, the
first sod for which had been turned at the previous festival at Winnipeg,
all the races which go to make up the peoples of the west have contributed���Icelanders and Irish with their folk-songs and lore, Swedes and
Slava alike with their folk-crafts and dances. Hardly a race known to
civilization, old or new, but contributed to the festival some artistry
which will makefor the further development of that culture which,
being national, wiil Le the means of welding to a still greater solidarity,
those people who are Canada.
That tlie movement for the attainment of this end is ji popular one
was demonstrated by the fact that literally thousands were unable to
obtain adzi-Hion to the exhibits and concerts and that western cities
are vicina with one another as the site of the next festival.
FOUR HUNGARY MAIDENS
Four Now Canadians from Hungary whose native chncci delighted thousands in
attendance at lhe Kegina Fctital
Jf rom whatever viewpoint it is to
" be judged, t_he____j_ea_t_\Vest Can...
"adian Festival recently brought lo
a conclusion at Regina, was a success. In attendance it eclipsed its
forerunner at Winnipeg last year.
Its handicraft exhibit covered a
wider range, a more comprehensive
representation of the peoples of the
West had been arranged for ancl,
in the words of J. M. Gibbon, sponsor of-the festival, "Saskatchewan
has proved that within its borders
is the foundation of an art upon
which will be built a structure" of
national culture finev than that of
any__other_nalioiuoii earth.^-Over-a-
hundred folk-dancers interpreted
the dances of many racial groups.
Folk-singers numbered over one-
hundred and sixty. Handicrafts
struck response from thousands
ancl it is safe to say that next-
years festival, which is all eady being planned, will receive slill gi'eat-
ei* support and present a folk-
pageant to be unequalled on the
continent. The festivals have been
arranged under the auspices of
the Canadian" Pacific Railway.
HAROLD TEEN IS COMING!
"Harold Teen," the drug store cowboy with Oxford bags and a weakness
for Shebas, whose .antics on comic
pages .throughout the country have entertained millions, has turned to the
screen and comes in that form to the
Greenwood Theatre on Saturday, May
4th, commencing at 8:15 p.m.
First National Pictures made "Harold
Teen" under the direction of Mervyn
LeRoy.-and-in the opinion of critics, it
is one of the most entertaining "and
delightful comedies of the year.
An all-featured cast is seen, including' Arthur Lake, Mary Brian, Alice

alter Reginald Baker, C.V.O.,
former secretary of the Canadian Pacific Railway and the last
surviving member of tho original
traflic organization, of tho line,
died on April 1, at his home in
Montreal. Mr. Baker entered the
ft'rvu-o of the C.P.R. two days

i it-vy in 1%l and retired at his own
KMiu-sr, on January I, 3917.    Hu

.���".'a-, ���*:-���-i.-.tanl to the genera! super-
i'licinlcnr, assistant to the pre-
������i-.-Tt, assistant to the vice-pre-
didc-it, and secretary. Previous to
his ii-sociation with the railway,
li*..* was pi ivate secretary and comp-
L: oiler to Lord Dufi'erin, Governor-
Oiieral, 1874-78.
Born in Vork, England, on May
A.j, JK52, Mr. Baker.came to this
lOiuitry alone at the age of 13
,, Lai".-*. The boy began to establish
���i v-cueer for himself early, and
j Iter parking through several
MMges of progress towards success,
found himself, at the age of 22,
priv.'ite secretary- of His Majesty's
leprcsentative in the Dominion.
Later he became attached to the
Tiea-iury Department and was
assistant secretary of the Treasury
Board at Ottav/a just before the
G.i'.R. was organized.
In the historical organization of
Oie railroad, Mr. Baker was one of
iho principal actors. Before he
died, the former secretary put
Cow n op. paper, as the last sur-
v ivliijs, member of the original
group, just what were the circumstances surrounding the beginnings of the great company's organization. The company was
'.ormed on February 15,. 1881, and
lhe organization meeting of the
board of directors was held two
-lays later. Charles Drinkwater
..���as named secretary of the com-
, any,.the first official to be ap-
; oinied, according to the account
of the historical event as related
by Mr. Baker.
Mr. Baker's Story
Duncan Mclntyre, later first
vicc-piesident of the company,
was a member of the "Syndicate"
ivhich had planned the organization of the C.P.R. He had made a
promise to Mr. Baker some time
hpfn*"? that, if the "Canadian Paci-
�����I��H     ""'  ��� ��� ���'     '       -'���*  '-II  ���!   "
Late YV. R. Baker, G.V.O.
fie Railway venture" camelo anything, he would "remember him."
In his account of the matter,
Mr. Baker recounts that "the
matter had passed out of my mind"
when on the night o'f February 18,
1881, he received a message from
Mr. Mclntyre. "I was busy late at
night, in my office in the Eastern
Block at Ottawa, preparing the
estimates for Parliament, when a
boy walked in with a telegram,"
Mr.-Baker related.
' Following the instructions con-'
tained in the message, Mr. Baker
went to the "Bank cottage"���,
the little house attached to the
Bank of Montreal for the use of
members visiting Ottawa���and
there met the little group of great
builders of the great road.
There seated at a table were
Donald Smith, later Lord Strath-
cona; George Stephen, later Lord
Mount Stephen; R. B. Angus and
Duncan Mclntyre. The upshot of
his interview with these historic
figures was that he went to Winnipeg with A. B. Stickney, general
superintendent ofthe C.P.R. western division, as accountant on
construction, and auditor of operation. "The salary was 50 per cent,
better than I was getting in the
rii-il -"Arvipp " Mr. Baker explains
in his autobiographical account,
"so, I -said at once 'I will go wherever you want me to go.' " ���
On the way to Winnipeg there
were* short stops at Chicago and
St.-Paul, where Mr. Baker liad an
opportunity of looking into the
American system of railway accounts. A special train took the
party to Winnipeg. Those with
Mr. Baker were: A. B. Stickney,
general superintendent, William
Harder, assistant traflic manager,
Joel May, superintendent, aiul
F. C. Butterfield, master mechanic
���"This party was the original traflic
organization of the Canadian Pacific Railway," Mr. Baker recorded.
"Before we arrived at Winnipeg,"
he continued, "Mr. Stickney decided that he wanted me to act as ~
his assistant and I was accordingly
appointed to the position of assistant to the general superintendent."
Various Appointments
In Winnipeg, Mr. Baker held
several positions successively in
the C.P.R. He was purchasing
agent, assistant to general manager
local treasurer, assistant to general
superintendent,- executive agent
and filled several other positions.
He was also connected with the
Manitoba and North West Railway. In 1901 he left Winnipeg for
Montreal. On that occasion he
was presented with a solid silver
service by the business community
of the western city.
During his connection with the
railway, Mr. Baker came into contact with several royal personages,
lie was in charge of the royal train
over the C.P.R. lines during the
several visits of the Prince ancl
Prin cess of Wales, now the reigning
monarchs; Prince Arthur of Connaught, and Prince Fushimi. In
return for his services to these
royal visitors he was presented
with several testimonials and received several titles. Among hid
titles were: Commander of the
Royal Victorian Order, Commander of the Order of the Sacred
Treasure of Japan, Esquire of thc
Order of St. John of Jerusalem, and
Freeman of the City of York.
He held audiences with Their
Majesties King George and Queen
Mary at Buckingham -Palace in
1911.

IGH officials of the Canadian Tacific were much relieved when Dr.
Ernest Fiench, the Harloy Street specialist, refuted the statement
oiiginating in London to the effect that mustard plasters were as
beneficial as ultra-violet rays. ��� During a Ion-* winter tho Company
has been engaged in building For use on the Tr-ms-Canada special
Solarium-Lounge cars equipped with "vita glass' windows which will
admit thc most beneficial sun-rays. It almost came to the question
of whether thc Company would scrap the new'equipment and issue
plasters to its patrons.
Tho new cars, designed for the roar end of the limited trains, will
be the most magnificent cars ever to be used on a non-premium train
on the continent. Given over entirely to the free use of the passenger,
the lounge cars, besides the Solarium feature, have the added attraction of bath-rooms lor men and women,  completely  and   lavishly
equipped, separate lounge and smoking rooms', a buffet ancl a large
observation room with tapestry covered chairs, divans and settees.
There arc, of course, ample writing facilities and a small library.

Finished in brown, a color note which is carried out in the upholstery,
cm tains and carpels, these cars contain in addition to the usual
publicspace, two compartments, a draw m-**. room and eight sections.
Each section, as will bc seen from the illustration above, is separated
lrom its neighbour by a peiinaneut head-board, which" gives an added
