Game and a Half Played
In Alice Arm Hockey
League
Owing to the oold weather, and
the desire of some players to take a
rest from last week's games only
V/i hockey games were played in
the Alice Arm Hookey League
during the week.
The Hist game was on Sunday
afternoon, when the Timber Wolves
and Tigers met again. From the
fans view-point the Tigers were
expected to win, after the knockout
they administered to the Wildcats
but something went wrong and the
Timber Wolves skated oft the ice
at the end of the game (not the
middle) with a score of 7-2 in their
favor.
At the olose of the first period
the score was 1-1 and prospects for
a tight struggle wa* promising,
but the Tigers fell to pieces, and
oould neither cheok their opponents
or score more than one more goal
themselves.
The loggers deserved to win for
they played a more dashing game.
They also indulged in considerable
combination play. It would appear
that from the manner in which
.they sling the puok to each- other
tliathoggiug it is not countenanced.
They atfe a team which each player
has confidence in his partner, and
they are steadily improving.
Timber Wolves: J. Hanna, goal;
Smith, defence; Crompton, Hutton
Erickson, forwards.
Tigers: P. Williamson goal; T.
W. Falconer, defenoe; Al. Falconer
DeGruchy, Moss, forwards.
On Tuesday night, with the
thermometor hovering around the
zero mark, the Wildcats and Timb'
er Wolves faced off for what promised to be a thrilling game. It was
thrilling enough while it lasted but
it broke up suddenly in the second
period over a goal dispute, and an
interesting game was marred by
too hasty aotion.
What play there was was of a
high calibre. The ice was perfeot,
and the weather oold enough to put
some ginger into the boys. It was
perhaps the fastest piece of hookey
seen this year. Eaoh team were
evidently feeling like playinghookey
and a whirlwind pace was maintained. The play was about even
although the Wildcats flicked the
disc into the net twice during the
first period, while the Timber
Wolves finished the period scoreless.
The powder magazine exploded
towards the end of the second period, when the loggers claimed they
scored a goal. The goal referee
did not see it scored, but
\ consultation was held with the game
referee and it was deoided to award
the goal. When the award was
ready to be made it was found that
the majority of the Timber Wolves
had left the ioe. Tlieir hasty aotion
brought the game to a olose, aud
gave the decision to the Wildcats,
I who were leading at the time. A
good game spoilt  and the league

Monday. This event was a success
from start to finish. The interior
of the building was beautifully

a great deal of oredit is due to
those who devoted their time and
talent in this connection. Different
colored streamers were suspended
overhead from the centre of a large
lamp and carried to the sides of the

Mr. and Mrs. Bobt. Carnier arrived at Alice Arm yesterday from
New Eiohmond, Quebec. They
were recently married in the east,
and have since been visiting relatives in the Peace Biver oountry and
Edmonton. They intend to spend
considerable time here. Mrs. Carnier is a younger sister of Mr. S.

The meat market on First Street
operated until a short time ago by
W. A. Wilson, will be re-opened
for business on Maroh 1st. It will
be known as the Alioe Arm Meat
Co. with W. A. Wilson as manager.
An up-to-date cold storage plant
will be in operation so that a large
stock of fresh meat will be able to
be kept on hand.
The coldest weather of the year
was experienced this week. The
intense cold was aooompanied by a
high wind that at times assumed
the proportions of a prairie blizzard. Hookey games at the Alice
Arm skating rink were abandoned
for a few nights owing to the cold.'
Due to the energetic efforts of
the new officers of the Mine Club,
this organization is again becoming
a factor in the social life of the
residents at the Mine. On Tuesday
of last week, the third of a series of
card parties was held.
These social gatherings are becoming an enjoyable part of community life on the hill, There was
an excellent attendance, especially
when it is taken into consideration
that counter attractions consisting
of basketball and a band concert
was held the same evening.
Play was very keen, the prizes
going to Mrs. Peterson and Mr.
Patton for the highest score in
bridge, and to Mrs. Ferguson aud
Mr. Kirkwood, who obtained the
major score in whist.
Mr. Swanson thinks that some
of the boys are too slick with a
pencil for him to make a winning
score, but he is, nevertheless, a keen
contender and takes a very great
interest in tho club activities.
Arrangements for the club
"smoker", which will be staged on
the 28th. of the month, are coming
along in great shape and give
promise of a most successful evening. The programme will consist
of athletic, musical and vooal numbers, and the affair will be up to
the high standard of former smokers sponsored by the Mine Club.
It promises to be a big night and
the boys are working hard to put
over a winner.
Sincere efforts are being made
to regain a large membership en-
joged by the club a few years ago,
and it is expected that ere long
this happy state of affairs will be
realized.
New Officers Installed
For B. P. 0. Elks
The installation of the officers of
Anyox Lodge No, 47, B. P. O.
Elks, was held in the Elks' Hall
on Tuesday evening. A large
number of members were present.
The newly elected officers are
among the town's most progressive
citizens, and under their guidance
the local Lodge should prosper.
Following are the new officers:

A movement has started
throughout the province of British
Columbia under the supervision of
the Parent Teacher Association of
this province to raise the sum of
$80,000 (eighty thousand) by March
1927, to establish a Chair of Home
Economics iu the University of
British Columbia. The Government having given a written promise to equip and staff the department, providing the people contribute the above sum by voluntary
contribution.
The subject of Home Economics
covers'the following:
(A) A fouryear course giving
a full University degree.
(B) Cooking, Science dietics
how to cook.
(C) Sewing, (l) Drafting patterns. (2) Designing, (3) Sewing.
This is an opportunity which
presents itself at the present time,
whioh unfortunately our mothers
aud wifes did not have the opportunity to take up iu their school
life. It will give girls a chance to
gain knowledge either for borne
life or to be put into practice in a
commercial way.
It is hoped that the people of
Anyox will get behind this movement and contribute for our young
people who in the majority aspire
and look forward to gain a higher
education to fit themselves for the
battle of life.
A nominal sum of 25 cents from a
large number of the residents of
Anyox would give strong indications that we are interested in the
welfare of our young people. The
men as well as the women can contribute towards this object. Women for the opportunities they did
not receive and the men in the
name of the wifes, daughters or
mothers.
A committee will be appointed
by Mrs. R. O. Cutler, president of
the Anyox P. T. A. who will endeavor to organize a campaign to
raise funds.

J, C. Brady, Conservative member for Skeena, was heard for the
first time in the House of Commons this week, iu connection with
a debate on the matter of a railway output from the Peace River
country to the Pacific Coast. He
supported a resolution by means of
which it was decided to refer the
matter to the committee on railways aud canals for consideration.
The resolution, which was proposed
by D. M. Kenedy, the U. F. A.
member for Peace River, was the
subject of considerable discussion
before it was finally adopted with
such amendments as to refer the
whole matter to the railway committee for investigation and report
During the debate, J. A. Fraser,
Conservative member for Cariboo,
also supported the resolution. ALICE  ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Friday,   Febri.ni# #'1927

On Wednesday next the mem-
bets of the Anyox Community
League, will nominate their officers
for the ensuing year. During the
past few yeats the members have
shown excellent judgement in selecting from their number, broad-
minded, sincere and zealous men
to further the interests of the league.
This is especially true during the
past two years, and the high plane
that has been reached is due to the
business ability of the present Council, and the indefatigable secretary
with whom they have worked in
perfect harmony, From an impartial viewpoint we do not believe
that the members of the League
can do any better than return the
present Council to office. They
have been tested and found efficient.
They have the experience, which
is an asset to every member. If
some of the present Council wish
to retire, carefulness should be
shown in nominating successors, or
the splendid smooth running organization that has been built during
the past two years may tumble, and
chaos and confusion reign in place
of the present efficiency. The
present high standing attained by
the Community League in Anyox
is due to a large extent to the untiring and unselfish efforts of the
present secretary. He has held
the secretaryship for the past five
years, and during that time the
scope of the League has been
steadily enlarged. He has allowed
no one to stampede him into any
false movement, but has built on a
concrete foundation, and every new
move has been deeply considered
before the final step was taken.
The result is today the League is
in a strong position, both financially
and otherwise, with the prospect
of becoming still stronger. It is
significant that during the past two
or three years the biggest progress
has been made. This is not only
due to the indomitable spirit of the
secretary, but the cooperation given
him by the Council when weighty
matters were to be disposed of.
This cooperation has been a happy
phase during the past two years,
and it is Hoped will continue for
the benefit of everyone in Anyox.
Dissension in the ranks of the offi
cers of any organization if carried
to extremes means disaster, and
disaster spells ruin. Perpetual
bickering wastes valuable time;
often it causes hard feelings, finally
terminating in an undying hatred,
and the good work of upbuilding
is never accomplished. In Anyox
which has each year an influx of
newcomers, it is much harder to
operate an organization such as the
Community League, than it is in
a town where the population is
more settled. The new arrivals
do not fully realize the important
work carried on by the League,
but were they here before any
such organization existed, they
would quickly be impressed by the
advantages gained, and do their
utmost to further its interests. We
have watched the League grow
from a new-born wobbling weak-
kneed infant to its manhood stature.
At the present time it occupies a
place in the lives of the people I
that cannot be duplicated, It is in
the interests of everyone to support
it, its Council and Secretary, for in
unity lies strength.
Taking liquor out of politics
should purify politics in British
Columbia, for when the government
has nothing to do with liquor,
liquor will have nothing to expect
from the government and will be
under no obligation to make con
tributiou to campaign funds. The
problem raised by the 'assurance
and protection" accounts, of the
breweries should, therefore, solve
itself. The transfer of the purchasing machinery from the control of
the government to the control of
the liquor commission is a proper
step. It should do away with the
possibility of graft in this connection. And private graft, the high
calibre of the board should place
beyond the pale.

RADIO Station CNRW, operated by the Canadian National Railways at Winnipeg,
Manitoba, has found an admirable
studio in the Concert Room, located on the seventh floor of the
Port Garry, the company's hotel, in
the western Gateway City, according to opinions expressed by listeners in all parts of Canada and
the United States. The acoustic
properties of this room lend themselves splendidly to microphone
transmission; plenty of space is
available for properly placing
musical aggregations of any size,
even to brass and pipe bands, symphony orchestras and large choirs,
and the broadcasts, /which are conducted by remote control through
station. CKY, have "gone across"
splendidly since this location was
secured. Photograph shows the
scene in the studio on the night of
Thursday, January 22, when the
photographer interrupted the broadcast for a few minutes with his
"Look pleasant, please."
From left to right the photograph shows The Winnipeggers
Male Sextette, who contributed
vocal   numbers:   R.H.R.   at   the
"mike"; Miss Helen Huggard, contralto; The Melody Three and Mr.
Gus Hughes, assisting violinist:
Al Kilgour, popular soloist, and
Miss Orean Hogan, soprano.
CNRW broadcasts each Thursday evening from 8 till 11 o'clock,
Central Standard time, beginning
with livestock market reports;
Kiddies' Travel Tales; studio vocal
and instrumental program, and
Prank Wright's Country Club
dance orchestra in dance program from the main dining room.
