Anyox Scouts Brought
Happiness To Many
Working as a group consisting
of Scouts, Cubs and Rovers, the
Anyox Scout Group oorapleted at
Christmas the greatest and most
important job, they have ever undertaken. As a matter of fact, the
job turned out to be muoh bigger
than was ever expeoted, but it
was oompleted in a most praiseworthy manner.
Letters and enquiries wero sent
out to various points in the north
ae to the need for toys, while the
Cubs and Scouts began to collect
toys for re-conditioning. The
Rovers and older Scouts started on
the work of repairing. When the
lists were turned in, it was found
that there would not be enough
toys to go round. A good friend
of the group thereupon stepped in
and donated a large assortment of
new toys, which was greatly welcomed. The Anyox Community
League loaned the sum of $50.00
towards the cause, and the Rovers
themselves contributed $25.00
/ As 75 children were named on the
last list received, and most of them
required other things than toys,
the $75-00 was donated to them
through people who knew , their
The Scout Group are grateful to
the Council of the   A. C. L.   for
making it possible for them to full-
,   fil their obligations to these needy
About 400 toys were re-conditioned and sent out to over sixty
families, at an average of five to a
family. Some of these parcels
were sent to points 200 miles away.
The Scout Group is planning a
similar effort for next Christmas.
Merry Throng Attends
Elks' New Year
Up to all expectations was the
New Year Supper and Danoe,
sponsored by the Anyox Lodge of
the B. P. O. E., hold in the Gymnasium on the evening of December
31st. and the morning of New
Year's Day.
All seats were taken for the supper
which was most enjoyable and
nearly two hundred more people
came at 12 o'clook to trip the light
fantastic. The hall was beautifully
decorated in the Elks' colors and
everyone wore an Elks' fez- At
the stroke of twelve everyone joined hands and sang "Auld Lang
Syne", the picture thus presented
being a memorable one.
Splendid music was furnished
by the "Revellers", their snappy
and tuneful presentations being
entirely to the liking of the crowd.
A buffet supper was served during
the evening. A feature of this
function was the total absence of
any inebriation, and this fact added greatly to the enjoyment and
success of the affair. Once again
the Elks have upheld tlieir reputation as good hosts to their patrons.
Legislature Will Meet On
February 20th.
The eighteenth Legislature of
British Columbia will meet for the
first time on February 20.
As more than half the cabinet
will not return to Victoria from the
Ottawa conference until near the
end of January, all the time between
now and February 20 will be required to prepare for the govern
ment's first session, one of the most
important in the history of British
While the government, like all
governments, desires to expediate
business as much as possible, the
session probably will last for four
or five weeks and will probably go
on until the Thursday before Easter
March 29.
Young Elks Entertained
At Christmas Party
Departing from the usual procedure of a Christmas Tree, the Elks
of Anyox held a party for the
younger Elks on Friday, December
29th. along somewhat different
lines. A new broadcasting station
viz, "B. P. O. E. Anyox," was "officially opened" and the world at
large was invited to take in the
proceedings. All the games beloved of the young folk were indulged in, after which Christmas
gifts were distributed. Each child
in order to secure his or her present
had to broadoast over the radio a
soiig, speech, recitation, riddle, or
what have you. Some of them
elected to shout "Hello Bill"
through the microphone, to the
delight of the mothers and other
grown-ups present and the aston-
isliment of all listening Elks. An
appetizing supper was afterwards
served and then all Elks, young
and old, took the trail homeward.
Anyox Wedding  Held
On Year's Day
A pretty wedding was solemnized at the Anglican Church at
Anyox on Monday morning, January 1st. when Bertha, eldest
daughter of Mrs. H.J. Billis(Inglis)
and the late Mr; Robert Inglis of
Vancouver, and Leighton, second
son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Henderson, of Anyox, were united in
marriage by the Rev. A. Abraham.
The bride was charming in a
gown of golden brown satin trimmed with eggshell crinkled satin
and a small felt toque to match.
She oarried a spray of red roses.
The bridesmaid, Miss Dorothy
Plumb, selected a marooil colored
gown of striped georgette and a
brown felt sailor hat. She carried
a bouquet of pink and white carnations. The groom was supported by his brother, Mr. Harry
Henderson. The wedding marches
and hymn were played by the
church organist, Mrs. A. R. Kent.
Following the service a bridal
breakfast was held at the home of
the groom's parents, the bride's
table having a three-tier wedding
cake decorated with a basket of
white carnations. The toast of
"the bride" was given by Mr.
J. Walter-Hughes of Alice Ann
and that of "the groom" by the
Rev. A. Abraham.
The groom's gift to the bride
was a handsome necklace, and the
bridesmaid was made the recipient
of a string of cut crystals.
Mr. Henderson, who has made
many friends during his stay in
Anyox, received a large number of
congratulations. The young couple
will reside in Anyox.
Alice Arm   Welcomes
The New Year
Despite the cold wintry night on
Sunday last, when sub zero weather
prevailed and a bright full moon
poured its light over the snow covered ground, a large number of
people were present at the Alice
Arm Hotel to welcome the New
Year, at the invitation of Mr. and
Mrs. O. Evindsen.
A few residents stayed home to
keep the fires going, but those who
attended were well rewarded for
their efforts. At the hour of midnight a large circle was formed in
the dining room when all joined
hands and vociferously welcomed
in the New Year, and hastened the
departure of 1933 by the singing of
"Auld Lang Syne." Outside the
roar of firecrackers spread the news
that a new year was born, and
everyone was busy wishing each
other "A Happy New Year."
The New Year was only a few
minutes old, when preparations
were made for supper, following
which dancing was carried on ''with
vigor until well into the early hours
of Monday morning. Everyone
was feeling happy and confident
that the New Year would bring
prosperity to the district. Mr. and
Mrs. Evindsen, the hosts, were the
recipients of many thanks for the
evening's enjoyment.
The spell of unusually cold weather that prevailed for over three
weeks terminated on Monday and
during the week snow and rain has
been experienced. No one was
sorry when the mercury started on
the upward climb.

Festive Spirit Prevails
At Pioneer Dance
For several years the management of the Pioneer Mess has held
a Christmas Dinner and Dance and
it is now looked upon as one of the
most important and worth-while
functions of the year. This year's
event was fully up to the standard
of those which have preceded it.
A record number of people Bat
down to a most enjoyable repast
and then adjourned to the reading
room and library for the dancing,
Here a number of unusual novelties
and noise makers were distributed,
until the scene was one of beauty,
color and animation.
The "Revellers" pleased everyone
with their rhythmio aud snappy
music, adding greatly to the zest
and enjoyment of the evening.
The committee in charge are to be
congratulated on their successful
efforts for the entertainment of
their numerous guests.
Premier T. D. Pattullo
Delivers Speech At
Prince Rupert
Premier T. D. Pattullo arrived
at Prince Rupert on Sunday on
board the steamship Catala, enroute to Ottawa, where he will
state his case regarding the financial position of B. C. to Premier R.
B. Bennett and cabinet, in conjunction with other western premiers.
In a speech given on board the
Catala on Sunday evening to about
fifty persons, the Premier said that
among other projects to he undertaken by the government would be
the continuation of the highway
from Prince Rupert to the interior.
The Premier stated that it had
never been contended that a large
programme of "work and wages"
would entirely meet the existing
situation of unemployment and
economic ills, but he most cert a inly
was of the opinion that it would
help a great deal in remedying
matters, particularly if useful work
was carried out as it was intended
to do.
He also stated that lie was very
hopeful of beneficial results from
the forthcoming conference iu
Ottawa. The government of
British Columbia intended to urge
the use of the national credit iu
undertakings, to bring about an
improvement in the economic situation. The Premier said that he
wished to give Premier Bennett
credit for having shown every
possible consideration for British
Columbia's convenience in connection with the inter-governmental
conference, which had now been
set to open January 17th.
Premier Pattullo declared that
there was no question of the fact
that "we are coming to a new state
of affairs." He referred to a new
and great change that was being
brought about by President Roosevelt's programme in the United
States. "Possibly many of us do
not realize the importance of these
changes," Mr. Pattullo said. The
Roosevelt programme could not be
a failure, the British Columbia Premier predicted. Already there were
many evidences of returning prosperity both in the United States
and Canada.
Mr. and Mrs. J. Durie left on
Wednesday for a visit to Vancouver
and the south. They will be absent
about a month.

The West Seeks Aid
From the East
Premier T. D. Pattullo, in company with the premiers of the
three prairie provinces, are on
their way to Ottawa to interview
Premier R. B. Bennett and his
cabinet. They will submit to the
Federal Government a proposal
under which all or part of the present provinoial indebtedness will be
refunded at lower Tates of interest.
The success of this Bcheme would
be of great benefit to western
Canada. Something must be done
to reduce interest charges for they
have become so heavy, especially
iu British Columbia, that it is becoming impossible to pay them,
and default is the only alternative.
This, the Federal Government can
not allow, as it would seriously
impair the whole credit system of
Canada. There is no doubt that
the matter will be satisfactorily
settled. The Australian states
were in tlie same predicament
about two years ago, and the arrangement reached there was that
the Federal Government borrowed
money at a very low rate of interest, and re-loaned a sufficient
amount to each state to carry them
on. They also refunded the state
debts at a lower rate of interest.
Rising Prices Are
Not Uniform
Reports from the leading cities
of Canada during the past few
months state that without a doubt
prices of commodities reached their
lowest levels during the latter
stages of 1933 and that a turn iu
the tide of higher prices has al
ready oommenoed. This is something to be thankful for. If the
price of copper would now
rise about five or six cents a pound
and silver about .25 cents an ounce,
we could all heartily agree with
the optimists that the depression
was over. It is poor comfort to be
told that the price of foodstuffs,
shoes, clothes, etc. is increasing,
while a corresponding rise is not
being registered in copper and silver, the two chief minerals upon
which everyone in this district is
dependent for a livlihood.
Six Thousand   Unemployed
Less in B. C.
The people of eastern Canada
have not reoeived the proposal of
the west for financial assistance
with enthusiasm. A great many
think that as the western provinces borrowed the money and had
the pleasure of spending it, they
should be ready to repay without
eastern assistance. Tlieir assertion
sounds quite reasonable, but it
must be remembered that it was
necessary for the west to borrow
large sums of money during the
past thirty years in order to develop such a vast and rich country.
Lots of money was needed to transform the country west of the
Great Lakes from a wilderness to
its present high state of production. True, a lot of money was
recklessly spent, but what was
done in the past can not be helped.
Conditions were good when the
money was spent, prices were high,
money was plentiful, and with a
large increase in population it was
thought that there would be no
trouble iu meeting all obligations
when they came due. It is to be
hoped that the governments of the
west have learned a lesson in economy from the bitter experience of
the past.

B. C. has approximately 6000
fewer persons on relief in December
this year than in the corresponding
month of last year. The peak for
midwinter is expected to be 100,000
persons, including dependents, as
against 106,000 in the same period
in 1932. The November total was
94,000 including those on relief and
their dependents.
Some of the reduction comes from
installation of a more rigid system
of checking those on relief who
might not be entitled to consideration. There has been a definite
movement of men back to work,
notably in logging and mining industries during the year.
Canadian Gold Exports Show
Big Increase
Canads's gold exports for November set a new record for all time.
At the current price (about $32 an
ounce) exports of this metal, as officially reported, represented nearly
$9,800,000 in Canadian money.
The official return of gold exports
issued by the Dominion bureau of
statistics calculates shipments at
the standard value of $20.67 per
fine ounce. On this basis, November exports totalled $6,024,220 for
bullion and $295,858 for those raw
gold shipments not handled through
the mint—a total of $6,320,078.
Production  of Canadian
Nickel Takes Jump
Production of nickel in October
amounted to 10,714,021 pounds, an
increase of more than 7,000,000
pounds as compared with the corresponding month last year, when
2,137,670 pounds were produced,
and was the highest output since

/hy pick on me?" says the little fellow, "there
are many other things which can interest you
and hold your attention." And so there are, but
after all the native life of the "Isles of the Blest" is
worth a little study, is it not? Take this little Ja-
maa-ian for instance. If you took away his shirt
and his broom handle you would not leave him much
other than a full tummy, yet he is a British subject,
and as such has an opportunity of becoming—well—
of doing pretty well for himself and of gathering
enough of this world's substance to give him comfort
•t least in his later years. He will grow up in a
ramshackle old hut on the edge of the town maybe,
and learn to be jealous of his rights as a citizen; and
when he comes to the age of understanding he will
be more English than the English. As a matter of
fact he will, in all probability, speak at least two
"English" languages. In one of these he might implore you to buy his fruits or lace bark souvenirs or

direct you over the fine road that form a network over the island, and in the other he will
converse with his kind. This language sounds
as foreign as any you will meet with in your tour of
the West Indies, but if you listen intently enough you
will catch an "I" and an "an" or a "Yes"; then gradually your ear will be able to distinguish all the words
and you will wonder that you could not understand
the dialect.
They are interesting, these people. Watch them
as they swarm around your cruising vessel docked

deep into the water for your coppers. They are a
different people in every sense of the word.

The Psychology of Color on a World Cruise
Cheqw SiostoM Time, Japan
Asvens poo Merchant
Colon that run rampant in the four
comers of the world provide the
contrasts that make a lasting impression on the memory of the world
traveller. Districts; wholly different
in their colorful ensemble are but a
few miles apart and the keynote of
theirstrikingcontrastsis color. Today
we hear much about color psychology,
its effect on the senses of people ana
of animals; and how it affects temperament and even health.
Colors ot the scattered ports ol the
world that burst from quaint basaars
and the costumes of the inhabitants
on the streets, vie with those of
nature. The landscapes and seas
differ; colors in architecture, and the
colors of princes, peasant and paupers,
gladden the eye and make the blood
run riot in unison.
From New York on December 2 the
Canadian Pacific steamship Empress I
of Australia, will commence another
cruise to the contrasting ports of the
world. ThlB vessel will make an
entire circuit of the globe anchoring in
66 ports and visiting 21 different
countries, covering during the four-
months cruise approximately 28,400
Funchal the Capital of Madeira,

with gaily colored houses and gardens;
Costumes here are likewise brilliant.
Naples with the wonderful blue of its
sea and sky, with Mount Vesuvius
at one side and the Islands of Capri,
Ischia and Procida in the distance,
affords a vision of loveliness.
Japan in cherry blossom time is a
fairyland of color and sunshine, and
Fujiyama towers above the masses of
bloom, its white summit contrasted
against the blue sky. New Year's eve
in Cairo is most festive and here
colors run riot. The bazaars, the
palaces and bright hued mosques
with their numerous minarets and
domes are color schemes of rare
beauty. Each of the countries offers
an ever-changing vista of color and
strike vividly into the memory,
causing the traveller to become Interested, consciously or not, in color
One of the features of the world
cruise of the Empress of Australia, is
the way detail worries have been
taken out of the hands of the members
of the cruise party. From start to
finish the ship is their home. Worries
in connection with foreign money,
customs regulations and language are
a thing unknown to the passengers,
as these details have been worked out
months ahead and handled entirely
by the cruise managers on board.

Canadian Copper Out-
Put Shows Large
In a report of the output of Canadian basio industries, an artiole in
the December issue of the Monthly
Commercial Letter, issued by the
Canadian Bank of Commerce, in
regard to copper, says:
A remarkable feature has been
the increase in production of non-
ferrous metals. The oopper output
in September amounted to 15,277
tons, the highest monthly figure on
record, and if the present rate is
continued the total for the year
should approximate the high reoord
of 1930 (151,000 tons.) The increase for the six months ending
September from 59,500 tons in
1932 to 77,000 tons this year was
one of 29 per cent. Although buyers in world markets have mostly
been content to oover a month's
requirements as compared with
three or four months a few years
ago, exports have recently   been
increasing and for the six months
ending October at 70,100 tons were
