Dials, Jan. 3.-The holidays passed
off quietly here. Nothing unusual oc
curlred to mar the goities and pleasures
endulged in; "big (ilners," informal
gatherings, as well as the more foiinal
ones, and the usual going aind coming
made up the season festivities .and in
tle words of the poet-now that you
have had "A merry Christmas, with a
wealth of joy and cheer, I pray that
God m-ay send you, each and every
one, a happy, glad Now Year."
Tle year before us .should be a hip
py one, prosperous and progressive,
despite the extreme Ilnancia depres
sion now existing, for a readjustment
will -have to come. The high cost of
living has aipparoitly crosrd "the
peak" and is coming down Not per
haps as rapidly as we may wish, but
surely there is some evidence that we
are on the 'way to improved conditions.
What we need to do, not less 'than in
the darkest days of 'the war, is to have
confidence and show IL "Another
tbwolve months for a new endeavor."

of higher rank. There has 'been some'

It is understood that no positive ac
tion has been taken in regard to the
appointment of a secretary to the pres

the position ywill go to George 13. Chris

British Ministry Makes Public Project

London, Dec. 31.-The British 'Min

The project is an outcome of the ef

A concrete dam wouild be placed

In the spring tides the Severn rises
38 fot, the second highest tide after
the Bay of Fuindy. The fact that
tidal waters h'ive never yet been used
for the generation of electricity on
such a vast scale, coupled with the
big estimated cost of the scheme,
make engineering experts cautious in
expressing views as to its feasibility.
The Times editorially refers to the
project as "somewhat flamboyant.' The
consent of parliament must be ob
