Skating Rink for Anyox
Being Planned
The idea of constructing a skating rink in Anyox was reoently
mooted by a well known enthusiast, and has oaught on with amazing quioknesa. A screen announcement at the pioture show last Saturday was greeted with cheers,
and an organization meeting
brought out many keen followers
of the sport. A large number of
tentative membership forms have
already been signed, and the Community League have endorsed the
idea and are giving the scheme
every encouragement. With the
large number of skaters now residing iu the community a commodious rink is practically assured,
and will be a source of recreation
to all who use it.
Football Association Accounts
Show Nice Balance
The accounts of the Football Association for the season just ended
show a balance on the right side of
the ledger, their receipts being
$163.25 and expenditures $94.14,
thus leaving an amount in hand of
$69.11. This sum will be turned
over to the Community League to
be used towards the purchase of
prizes for the two winning teams;
namely, the Rangers, winners of
the League, and the Celts, who
won the Football Cup. The best
thanks of the Association are extended to the A. C. L. for the use
of the football grounds and their
maintenance, and their willing assistance whenever same was requested.

Mr. A. Todd Presented
With Handsome Clock
On Friday afternoon September
22nd., Mr. Arthur Todd, Coke
Plant Superintendent, was made the
recipient of a handsome wedding
present by the members of his staff
and crew. The gift took the form
of a handsome oak clock with
Westminster chimes, the presentation being made by Mr. A. R.
Kent, who expressed the best wishes
of the employees for the happiness
of Mr. and Mrs. Todd. He stated
that he hoped the clock would never
register the time when the marriage
would be regretted.
Mr. Todd expressed his pleasure
at receiving such a handsome token,
and his keen appreciation of the
thoughtfulness of his staff. In a
facetious vein he stated that it was
difficult to find suitable words with
which to reply as he had never experienced anything of this kind before.. Mr. Todd was married in

Opening of Badminton
Season Attracts Large
Judging by the large number
who attended the opening night

on Monday last, and the keen interest displayed, this popular sport
is iu for the biggest season yet experienced. No less than seventy-

Mrs. Wenerstrom Winner Of
Ladies' Handicap Golf
H. R. Taylor Winner
Of Golf Trophy
We have only recently secured
details as to the result of the Golf
Club Handicap Championship, for
which there were forty-six entries.
This event created even more interest than did the regular championship, as the various handicaps,
which were carefully allotted, made
the games in every round very close.
The finalists were C. O. Fricker
and H. R. Taylor, the former having to concede four strokes over the
36-hole route. It proved to be a
very close and well-fought match
throughout. At the end of the
first eighteen holes the contestants
were all square, and the game was
anybody's up to the last hole, when
Taylor won two up. This championship carried with it the handsome Charles Bocking trophy, and
the winner received many congratulations on his success.

Prospects Are  Bright
For Basketball This
A well-attended basketball organization meeting was held in the Recreation Hall on Monday evening
the 25th. Sports Councillor J.
Buntain was elected to the chair.
The minutes of the previous annual
meeting were adopted, and the usual constitutional form was gone
Entries for teams were called for,
and from those entered and those
about to be formed, it would appear that there will be eight men's
basketball teams in the field this
season. These will be divided into
four senior A and four Senior B
teams. Of these there will be one
Senior A and one Senior B team
from the Mine. Two ladies' teams
are assured, and there are possibilities of a third team, which would
add considerably to the interest in
the ladies' league.
A number of nominations were
received for the basketball commission. Clarence Dresser was the
unanimous choice for secretary and
commissioner of the League.
With so many enthusiasts of this
popular game, and a large number
of new-comers to the camp, the
prospects for a good season are
very bright.
Expansion of Mining
Among the various business indexes which economists base their
deductions and prognostications
none occupy a more important place
than base metals. Latest figures
available in this respect show, comparatively, the tremendous growth
which industry has made in Canada
during the last decade and they also
indicate the low level to which
world commerce had dropped, states
the Industrial Department of the
Canadian National Railways.
Taking the production of copper,
lead and zinc in Canada during the
decade 1922 to 1932, Canada increased her production of copper
495.5 per cent, lead 282.9 per cent
and zinc 310.1 percent. Lead mining in Canada is concentrated in one
mine at Kimberly, British Columbia
which accounts for 98 per cent, of
all the lead mined in the Dominion,
Nickel, which is a product of the
steel-alloy age, exemplifies the extent to which world trade had fallen. Canada exercises practically a
monopoly in nickel production and,
therefore, Canadian figures can be
taken as a gauge in this regard
Comparing the year 1932 with 1929
there has been a decline of 72.4 per
cent, in production. Comparing
the 1932 with the 1931 level, production fell off nearly 54 per cent
With world trade recovery under
way, the production of copper, lead,
zinc and nickel should show corresponding increases.
Howe Sound Co. Increases
Howe Sound Company with the
October 15 dividend payment of 25c
returns to an annual dividend basis
of $1.00 per share, compared with
40 cents in recent quarters. The
25c payment will be made October
15, to shareholders of record September 30, Dividends of this company, which operates Britannia
Mine on Howe Sound and lead-zinc
mines in Mexico, reached a peak of
$5.00 per annum in 1929 after
$4,00 per annum in the two previous years. The distribution in
1930 totalled $4.00; in 1931, $2.25
and in 1932, 95 cents. For the
first two quarters of this year pay
ment was made at the rate of 10c
per share.
United Church Ladies
Hold Japanese Tea
Somewhat of an innovation was
the Japanese Tea which was held in
the United Church Hall on Friday
September 22nd. A large number
of people were present and thoroughly enjoyed the novel surroundings and the dainty refreshments
which were served. The hall was
prettily decorated in Japanese style,
and the oriental setting was made
realistic by the attractive costumes
of the young ladies who acted as
Those in charge of the arrangements for the tea were Mesdames
Dunn, Evans, Cloke, Roots and
Windram; and the young ladies who
served tea were Flora Cavers, Mae
Barclay, Eleanor Wilson, Lillian
Dresser and Mildred Dresser. The
Home Cooking and Candy section
was in charge of Mrs. W. Barclay,
who was assisted by Mrs. Ubell and
Mrs. Newton. Mrs. Bristow looked
after the general arrangements for
the afternoon.

Gold Production in Canada,
Slightly Lower
The production of gold in Canada
during June totalled 261,411 ounces,
in the preceding month 237,661
ounces were produced and in June,
1932, the output was 270,652
ounces. During the first six
months of the current year 1,457,-
923 ounces of gold were produced
in Canada as compared with 1,501,-
230 ounces in the corresponding
months of 1932.
Ontario mines produced 180,511
ounces, Quebec 33,845. The first
production of gold bullion by the
Beattie Gold Mines Ltd., in Dupar-
quet township is included in the
June record. British Columbia,
Manitoba, the Yukon and Nova
Scotia produced 46,055 ounces.
Included in this total were 13,132
ounces of alluvial gold from British
Columbia and the Yukon.

CanADA-The Ideal Vacation Land
4 Country of Scenic Charm and Outdoor Recreation
IN recent years Canada has
become one of the most
popular playgrounds of the
North American continent
and millions of tourists visit
this country annually, in
search of recreation.
Canada possesses aa extensive system of modern highways, with good
secondary roads linking together the
main routes of travel. Excellent
train services are in operation between the principal cities, while
steamship lines connect lake and
ocean ports. Every class of travel
accommodation is available, from
tourist camp to luxurious hotel. Our
larger Canadian cities possess some
of the finest hotels in the world and
the majority of smaller cities and
towns have modem establishments
which cater to the travelling public.
Recreational Attractions Nearby
Within reasonable touring distance of the main centres of population, recreational attractions of
outstanding merit are to be found.
Lakes and rivers well stocked with
fish, hunting areas of vast extent and
camping grounds' in their natural
state, are only a few of the many
features which make the country a
popular vacation land during all seasons of the year. An atmosphere
of old France permeates Quebec and
tbe Maritimes, while Ontario and
the Western provinces have much to
offer by way of historic sites and
Numeroni Canoe Trips
For those who desire a vacation
close to nature, a canoe trip is ideal
and Canada's extensive system of
rivers and lakes offers a limitless
choice of route and type of trip.
For the novice there are many trips
close to civilisation, which may be
taken with comfort and perfect
safety, while unmapped and even
unexplored regions challenge the expert and the adventurous. Canoes
and equipment may be rented and
guides are available in practically
all districts. •'Subject to reasonable
fire prevention regulations the canoe-
its, camper, camera hunter or
student of wild life, may come and
go, unrestricted, through the country's vast forested ana.
Excellent   Fishing
's fishing waters, on account of their extent and diversified
nature, provide an exceptional range
of sport for the angler. The game
fish include, salmon, brook trout, lake
trout, bass, maskinonge, pike, pickerel, grayling, steelhead and tuna.
Intelligent protection and constant
re-stocking help to keep up tbe supply of fish in the popular districts,
while in the more remote areas there
are still plenty of virgin waters. The
cost of fishing licences is moderate
and the open seasons are long.
Calf and  Tennis Popular
Caiada is well supplied with golf
sourses and new ones are being built
in every province. No city is without
at least one golf club and most of the
larger towns and popular summer re
sorts have courses.  Tennis b also
