[Anyox School Principal
Addresses Parents
and Teachers
The second regular meeting of
[the Anyox P. T. A. for this year,
was held in tho New School,, on
Tuesday evening, October 10th.
jit was splendidly attended, there
being about forty present, and it is
hoped that this attendance augers
lot' still more interest being evinced
the efforts of the association.
.Fathers as well as mothers are
urged to add further impetus to
this increase by coming along to
the meetings also.
New business at this session in-
I eluded the voting of a sum up to
one hundred dollars, for the pur^
chase of new books, to augument
the sohool library. Another
amount was also authorised to
secure bulbs for winter bloom, and5
the consequent beautification of
the class rooms.
An attendance campaign will
probably be inaugurated shortly,
and to stimulate interest in this,
it has been proposed to make an
sjvyard each month to the class
having the largest representation
|of parents at Jthe meetings.
It was decided to make enquiries of other larger centres in
the province as to the value of the
lantern projection machine, as an
aid iu lesson illustration in school,
and as an asset to the P. T.A.
I generally.
After the conclusion of the business, those present were privileged
in hearing from Mr. Robert Manzer
the new principal of the Anyox
schools and speaker of the evening,
an address on the subject: "Some
Reminiscences of the Progress of
Education in our Provinoe. Although the speaker gave warning
that his address would partake
merely of the nature of an informal talk, it was nevertheless the
'more    valuable    and   delightful
I beoause of that faot.
From a lengthy experience, and
a keen and oonstant observation,
Mr. Manzer recalled and related
to his audience the story of the
steady and continuous upward and
broadening trend of educational
advance in British Columbia. Although one of the youngest
provinoes, the speaker' pointed out
that B. C. has kept pace with the
older Eastern Canada, how acQR-
! tinuity of system has been preserved    even    when    experimental
I changes have been made, and how
I, school activities have continued to
i wjden as new demands have been
I encountered.
Eloquent tribute was paid the
J pioneer educationalists of the
province, many of whom the
speaker had come iu personal con-
' tact. Mr. Manzer's address in this
latter connection was replete with
humorous touches,
I     In conclusion, he spoke of the
[, better organization and closer co-

Alice Arm Debating
Society Stages First
Event of Season
The first debating class to be
held under the auspices of the
Alioe Arm Debating Society, was
held on Tuesday evening, at the
Anglican Church Building, before
a paoked house. The Chair was
occupied by E. Moss, who gave an
outline of why the Sooiety was
formed, and its aims and objects,
and hoped the debates would be
carried on throughout the winter.
Owing to the short notice given
it was found by the team who
were to debate, that it was not
possible to hold a regular debate,
and it was decided to choose six
different subjects. These were
placed in an envelope, and the
names of the speakers in. another
envelope. A slip was then drawn
from each, and this is how they
came out: Miss B. Crowford, lumber industry; J. M. Morrison,
fishing industry; B- W. Barrett,
fruit growing; M. D. Ross, needlework and home cooking: T. W.
Falconer, mining industry: H.
Fowler, farming. None of the
speakers knew the subject they
were.lo speak on, until the slips
were drawn, and .while the majority of the speeches were short they,
caused a considerable amount of
amusement to the audience, who
evidently relished the spectacle of
the speakers trying to rack their
brains for someting to say.' To
Miss B. Crawford, belongs the
honor of making the first speeoh
under the auspices of the Sooiety,
and she did splendidly.
After the speech makers had
finished, a short business meeting
was held. Regarding the evening
classes, Mr. Woodward who was
present, said, he was prepared to
teach any classes that may be
formad. It was decided that any
one desirous of joining these classes
should leave their names at
Bruggy is Store. Mr. Fowler asked
what arrangements had been made
for paying rent for the building,
Mr. Riel suggested that a larger
Hall be obtained, so that a social
affair could be put on after, the
weekly debate. After some discussion, it was moved by Mr. J. M.
Morrison and seconded by Mr. G,
Strombeok that a committee be
appointed to secure another building if possible, and report' at the
next meeting.
The committee appointed were:
Messrs. H. Fowler, J. Morrison, C.
P. Riel, M. D. Ross, M. Petersen.

Alice Arm Road
and Trail Work
Trail work ott the upper Kit"
sault river is '.'proceeding very
satisfactorily. The trail to the new
bridge site at Camp 8 is nearing
completion, and about 700 more
feet will finish the trail work.
The foundations for the bridge will
then be levelled off.
It is not expected that the bridge
will be built until spring, as there
will be no demand for it during the
winter and it would only be supporting a heary load of snow, but
all bridge material will be on the
ground, and will take Very little
tipe to put up next spring. The
bridge will have a total length of
128 feet, and the approximate
height above the river will be 70
feet. The entire structure will be
supported on two If in. steel cables,
each cable will be capable of
supporting a load af 100 tons.

cburts into a temporary rink. The
oost would be $915.00. There was
considerable discussion regarding

proposed to sell a, certain number
of season tickets, and Mr. Rowley
suggested that the men pay $5.00,

over 14 the same amount, while

ed to canvas the town for the
purpose of getting signatures to a
subscription list. Mrs. Hoffman
suggested that those who did not
pledge themselves for a season's
ticket be made to pay highly for
admission to the ice after the rink
was opened. Mr. Selfe thought
that the band would be an attraction in the evenings and would help
make the effort successful. Mr.
Armour thought that the committee asked for by Mr. Rowley
should be headed by Mr. Rowley,
and suggested that he be appointed
Chairman with power to appoint
his own assistants.
Mr. Noel said that he had been
at the smoking concert last Friday
night and attributed it's great

The Anyox
Community League.
The Anyox Community League
are putting on a drive in order to
increase the membership of that
organization, and we wish them
the best of luck. Some ambitious
schemes have lately been started
by the League, including a picture
show at the Mine, gymnasium at
the Beach, news bulletin, and later
on a skating rink will be made, so
that outdoor sports can be indulged
in during the winter as well as ihe
summer. All these schemes for
the benefit of the residents of
Anyox need money, and the
League should be given all possible
support, in their efforts to provide
entertainment for the public, if
you do not assist by becoming a
member, and helping the good
work along, then you certainly are
not in a position to criticize what
the other fellow is doing for the
welfare of the community. It
takes a lot of money each year to
successfully operate the League, as
members of the present Council,
and also members of all previous
Councils' know full well. If, for
any reason the League should
cease to exist, the people^of Anyox
would then realize the big part it
now plays in the camp. Those
who were in Anyox before the
League was instituted, know how
drab and dreary life was after
working hours. Sports of all
kinds were at a low ebb, because
there was no organization in existence to make it otherwise, but
since the Community League has
been organized a tremendous
change has taken place and all
kinds of sports can be indulged in
both summer and winter, in addition to which a first-class library,
reading and writing room is available for use of members at all
times. Perhaps, some time in the
future some one will write a short
history of the activities of the
Community League, since its
inception, and if such were
done it might educate a number of
the recent arrivals who question
the usefulness of the organization.

commencing to move from the Telkwa
colleries to Prince Rupert. Work of

municipalities 00 per cent., according

Minister of Education. ' There are
2,750 teachers and 86,000 pupils in the

"Education is costly, but ignorance
is more costly to the country," Dr,
McLean said. "Of all the development
of the province there is none more important than training the minds of the

understanding. It was a pleasure
indeed to have heard this frank and
satisfying talk from the new
school head, and we sincerely hope
it shall only be one of others to
come in future. The P. T. A.
needs now, aud at all times, keen
thinking, plain and concise speaking, and a clear conception of the
subject of its organization, to
ensure its greatest success in, and
benefit to the Community.
Owing to the too prevalent indi-
cision in our business sessions, the
musical portion of the programme
was, as usual, belated, but still
none the less enjoyable. In all
fairness, however, to our entertainers, it is to be hoped that we
resolve that business shall be
strictly limited to a certain set
period of the evening.
Those who contributed the very
delightful numbers of the evening's
programme, were as follows: Violin
solos, Mr. Parker; Vocal solos,
Mrs. J. Conway and Miss Violet
