Community League May
Improve Excursion
The Community League Council
made a special trip to Larcome Island on Wednesday evening to de
termine what work should be un-
lertaken there with a view to improving the facilities for summer
excursions. Work on the League's
promises at the Mine is progressing. When this is oomploted the
A. C. L. Counter and Pool Room
will lie greatly benefited. The
Mine Library Room will also be
larger and more attractive. The
quarters used by the Mine Club
will also receive attention.
Alice Arm Hotel Preparing
For Busy Season
Mr. 0. Evindson of the Alice
Arm Hotel is making preparations
for a busy season this summer.
The balconies occupying the front
of the Hotel have been rebuilt; a
complete new water system has
been installed; the interior has received a thorough spring cleaning,
and later in the summer the exterior will be re-painted. The dining
room is also being operated, and
this service will be greatly appreciated by summer guests.
The Hotel will undoubtedly be
again patronized this summer by
many Anyox people, who desire a
quiet vacation amid pleasant surroundings. During the summer
tables will be placed on the balconies, and tea and other refreshments
A photograph of the Hotel appears in our advertising columns
this week on page four.

Legion, and the Scouts gave their
promise, closing a real good Scouty

High School Term Extended One Year
In a circular forwarded to School
Boards the Education' Department
states that "the new high school
programme of studies represents a
further step in the reorganization
of the school system of the Prov-
noe in conformity with the recommendations of the British Columbia School Survey Commission and
in line with the methods followed
in the most efficient educational
systems in Europe and North
America. When the advantages
and benefits of the new course are
fully realized there will be general
gratification that the short three
year high school course which has
been responsible for long hours of
home study and for harmful and
unpedagogic methods of cram and
drill has given place to a four-year
course which will encourage sounder methods of teaching and greater
permanence of learning. It is hoped and expected that the new
course will give to the youth of
British Columbia opportunities,
more nearly equal to those which
would be open to them in other
parts of the British Empire."

away on Sunday morning, after an
illness of only two days. The little
girl was born in Anyox, British
Columbia, and had come to Copper
Cliff some time ago with her parents. She attended school and was
very popular among her classmates. Besides her parents she
leaves six brothers, George, Walter, Hugh, Eddie, Bobbie aud Stewart, and one sister, Ruth. The

They expect to arrive on Saturday and several of their number
will augment the Alice Arm Orchestra at the dance on Saturday

concert if possible. The program
for the concert will consist of select feature numbers of the past
season, together with some snappy
selections which will appeal to the
audience. A trombone solo, a cornet solo, and, if possible, a violin
trio will also be given.
The concert is scheduled to commence at 2 p.m. E. Ross Oatman

The orchestra are giving their
service gratis in order to assist the
Alice Arm Athletic Club in making this year's celebration an outstanding success.
Taku Country Looks Good
To J. Peacock
We regret that the Herald will
not be able to arrive in Anyox on
Saturday morning this week.
The delay is due to Saturday being
a public holiday. It is hoped,
however, that the papers will ar
rive Sunday evening for early de
livery on Monday.
The Herald received a letter on
Thursday from Mr. James Peacock
who has arrived at Tulsequah,
Taku Country. He left Alice Arm
a few weeks ago, accompanied by
Mat Storey.
Jim states that he likes the look
of the country. There is however
a lot of snow on the hills. He had
no difficulty whatever in crossing American territory, and states
that the stories circulated regarding a large number of waiting men
at Juneau are not true. He states
there are quite a few prospectors
at Tulsequah, but there is lots of
room for everyone.
Please send the home town
paper along he said. Neil Forbes
also requests his paper, as we are
anxious to keep in touch with
Alice Arm events.
Applications will be received by
the Anyox Elks' Lodge up to

Next week, commencing from
May 26th. to June 2nd. is Empire
Shopping week. This date has
been set aside each year in order
to foster trade in the Empire.
The stores throughout the Empire
will display Empire made goods,
and patriotic citizens are expected
to ask for and receive nothing but
goods made within the Empire if
possible. It is a grand idea, but
instead of setting apart one week
in the year, why not include the
whole twelve months for pushing
the sales of Empire made goods.
It is our duty to buy Canadian
made godds first. Other countries
are continually raising their tariff
walls so high that our export is
being strangled. If Canadians
prefer foreign made goods, we cannot blame others for rejecting our
produce. Buying home made articles is a privilege and a duty.
In doing so we keep our money at
home employing Canadian workmen, thus increasing our wealth
and prosperity. Money sent to
foreign countries is lost forever. It
builds up foreign industries and
robs Canada of its population, for
men must go where, employment is
obtainable. Our practice throughout the year should be to buy
goods manufactured in British Columbia first, secondly those made in
other provinces, and thirdly goods
manufactured in Great Britain.
The latter country is Canada's
best customer, but we do not re-
ciporate as we should do. Spend
your money with those from whom
you receive is a good business
motto, and it is one that Canada
should follow more closely.
Tomorrow, as good loyal Canadian citizens, we celebrate Empire Day. At Alice Arm the celebration will be of greater proportions than several previous years.
Many Anyox visitors are expected
to join us in our celebration. It is
hoped that summer weather prevails and that everyone will spend
an enjoyable week-end away from
the worries of work. Our Anyox
visitors can be assured of a hearty
welcome and we hope that during
the coming summer large numbers
will visit Alice Arm to enjoy our
unexcelled scenery and fresh air.
W.B. George Will Pros-
pect For Consolidated
Stewart News
W. B George left on Thursday
for Telegraph Creek, from where
he expects to go north to look over
some country in the vicinity of the
head of the Taku river. He will
stay in the interior in the interests of
the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Co., andjl during the summer
will cover a wide range of country.
Before leaving Stewart, Mr.
George stated that on account of
there being no road up the Bear
river beyond American Creek, making transportation of mining supplies highly expensive, it is not
proposed to do very much on the
George Enterprize until such time
as proper road facilities are provided. However the company is in
sound financial condition.
Road facilities might also be a
large factor in deciding the Consolidated development policy on George
Copper, Mr. George said.

Spring seeding ln the west is
proceeding at a rapid pace, according to report at tlie end ot
April trom the agricultural department ot the Canadian Paciiic
Railway at Winnipeg. Taking the
three prairie provinces as a whole
it was then estimated that 43 per
cent, of wheat seeding is completed, with some districts in southeastern Alberta reporting between
50 and 65 per cent, finished. Heavy
showers have somewhat retarded
progress in .lorth-western Saskatchewan.

Canada Still Best U. S. A.
Ottawa—Reports of the United
States Chamber of Commerce show
Canada to have been the best customer of the United States in 1929
for the second consecutive year as
well as the principal distributor of
foreign products in the Republic.
The reports show that Canada's
purchases from the U. S. A. amounted to nearly $100,000,000 and
were 18.1 per cent, of the whole,
being larger than those of 1928 by
$33,788,000. The United Kingdom held second place with exports
at $867,980,000(from the U. S. A.)
Imports from Canada amounted to
$504,000,000 or a gain of $14,974,-
000 over 1928. Japan came second
in its volume of exports to the
States, the year's value being $431,-

Ottawa, May 17th.—The Dominion Bureau of Statistics at Ottawa
reports that the production of automobiles in Canada during the month
of March numbered some 20,730
cars. This amount was just about
half of the total number of cars
manufactured in the corresponding
inonth of 1928.
Reports from the Customs show
that 3,805 cars were imported into
Canada and 6,630 cars were exported during the same month. Of the
total output during March, 16,244
cars were made for sale iu the
country and 4,486 cars were in

French River, Home of Wiley "Muskie," Will Soon Echo
Cries of Elated Anglers as They Battle Fresh Water Tiger
«Mow is the time for all good
i^ fishermen to prepare for
that summer trip" is an appropriate slogan for disciples of Isaac
Walton these balmy spring days.
A successful fishing trip depends
largely upon the careful selection
of location, tackle and even associates, for many a party has been
ruined by the last-minute introduction of a "wet blanket" to an
otherwise congenial collection of
sportsmen.     •
One of the most interesting fishing streams in North America is
French River, Ontario, 215 miles
north of Toronto on the Canadian
Pacific Railway. This lordly river
is celebrated as the habitat of the
fighting muscalunge, one of the
earnest fish known; huge Great
Northern pike, pickerel, an abund
ance of small-mouth and large-
mouth black bass and other finny
prizes. To accommodate sportsmen
and their families, a fine bungalow
camp—a collection of individual
cabins centering around a main
clubhouse—has been erected on a
cliff overlooking the river. Here
the fisherman and his family can
"rough it in comfort," far from
the cares and annoyances of a
work-a-day world.
That big "muskies" are plentiful at French River is proven by
the fact that one recent summer
a monster muskie weighing 65
pounds was taken in the North
Channel at the mouth of the
Wolseley River. Also, not long
ago a party of Ohio sportsmen
caught, besides their daily limit of
bass, pike and pickerel, no less
than seventeen "muskies" ranging
from 10 to 38% lbs. In 1926 a "muskie" of 35 pounds weight, 50
inches long and 21 inches in girth
was taken in the main channel of
the French, one mile from the
bungalow camp. ,
The French River Bungalow
Camp will open June 15 and remain open until Sept. 15. Jack
Strathdee, its genial manager, is
an experienced outdoorsman whose
chief delight is coaching the uninitiated in the art of luring the
fish. French River also has a fine
9-hole golf course so that devotees
of the royal and ancient game who
are also fond of fishing need not
entirely forego the former sport
in favor of the latter.
