Thomas Shackleton Dies At
Tranquille Sanitarium
The many friends in the north of
Thomas W. Shackleton, will regret
to learn of his death at the Tranquille Sanitarium, Kamloops re
cently. Tommy was an old resident
of the* north, where he was engaged
in fishing, mining and hotel business. He was a resident of Alice

hotel at Usk, on the Canadian
National Railway.
High School Students Hold
Annual Dance     v
The students of the Anyox High
School held their Annual Dance and
Jamboree on Friday, September 30
in the Oddfellows' Hall. This
was supposedly a hard times affair,
but the weird and wonderful disguises of the pepppy high school
attendants and their friends made it
look more like a masquerade. Anything went.
Snappy music was supplied by
Harry Ward's Orchestra, and an
appetizing supper gave further relish
to the proceedings. The affair was
voted one of the best so far held.
Large Number Attend

The church was prettily decorated,
the seats for relatives and invited
guests being indicated by white ribbons. The ushers were Maxwell
Patrick and Bruce Loudon. The
bride, who entered the church on
the arm of her father, was charming
in a beautiful French made georgette
and lace dress, with orange blossom
cap and embroidered veil. She
wore elbow-length mesh gloves,
white kid shoes, and carried a bouquet of white carnations. Miss
Marjory Cloke attended as bridesmaid, and chose a dress of flowered

those present had a most enjoyable
session of whist. The first prize

New  Ore  Discoveries
Made Alice Arm
Despite the unfavorable market
conditions for metals, other than
gold, a number of mining property
owners of the Upper Kitsault
Country have carried on considerable development work this year.
J. Strombeek, who has done considerable work on the Moose property this summer, was in Alice Arm
this week for supplies, leaving
again yesterday. He is at present
developing a new ore showing, from
which he has obtained good gold
values. While nothing sensational
has been encountered, the results
already attained warrants further
development.
A. Davidson, who, in addition to
extending.tunnels on the Wildcat,
is at present developing the Summit Group. He is working on an
ore body composed of galena, with
satisfactory results.
Archie McPhail, who has done
considerable work on the Highland Boy Group is said to have developed a big body of galena,ji)re
this year.
Morris Peterson, who has carried
on development work on the Vanguard this year, has located a body
of ore carrying good gold values.
J. Hauber, while working on the
Lucky Strike Group above the Vanguard also struck a vein of gold-
bearing ore.
Many Attend Funeral Of
Late Luka Draca
I.O.D.E. Hold Their
Monthly Meeting
A well attended meeting of the
Collison of Kincolith Chapter, I.O.
D. E., was held in the Club Room
of the Canadian Legion on Monday,
October 3rd., Regent Mrs. Fricker
being in the chair.
Many matters of interest were
discussed and several outlets for the
activities of the local Chapter were
suggested. As in previous years,
the ladies of the 1. O. D. E. will
undertake the sale of poppies on
Poppy Day at the Armistice Anniversary.
Mrs. J. McMillan was nominated
Echoes' Secretary, succeeding Miss
E. Ormrod resigned. Mrs. J. W.
Lang was appointed Convener for
the Committee to assist with the
Armistice Dance, and Mrs. Fricker
was made Convener for the Committee to look after the sale of
poppies on Poppy Day. The hostesses for the evening were Mrs.
Cundill, Mrs. Cleal and Mrs. Deane.
In their customary loyal manner,
the countrymen of the late Luka
Draca, who was accidently killed
while cutting firewood at Anyox on
September 27th. turned out in full
force to pay their last respects at
his funeral on Sunday last. There
was a very long cortege, and people
from the Beach as well as from the
Mine were present.
The service was held in the Anglican Church by the Rev. J. S. Brayfield, who also officiated at the
graveside, and a short' impressive
service was conducted by N. Mat-
anovich. There were many beautiful floral tributes. The deceased
man was very well known in Anyox
and was greatly respected among
his fellow countrymen.
Active Badminton Season Is
Planned For Winter
At a meeting of the members of
the Anyox Badminton Club, held on
Friday, September 30th. the following officers were elected for the
coming season: President F. C.
Edwards; Vice-President, R. Gale,
Secretary-Treasurer, W. Gibb; Executive, Mrs. Kirby, T. Cloke J.
Foss.
Much discussion arose as to the
best manner in which to run the
Club this season and it was finally
decided that the membership fee be
50 cents, members to provide their
own shuttles. Suggestions were
made as to the carrying out of this
arrangement, and it will be tried
out for two months. A schedule of
evenings for play will be drawn up
immediately.
The Elks' Lodge have formed a
Badminton Club of their own this
season, and it is already an attractive feature of this well known institution. The Elks have an excellent
court in their hall. Membership is
limited to Elks only, who are privileged to bring their lady friends as
guests. The infomality of the Elks'
fraternity makes this club very desirable to the members.
CARD OF THANKS
Mrs. A. E. Robertson desires to
extend her sincere thanks to all
those who so kindly expressed
their sympathy in her recent bereavement. She especially wishes
to mention the Rebeccas, Oddfellows, I. 0. D. E. and the Canadian Legion, and to gratefully
acknowledge the many beautiful
floral tributes. ALICE  ARM   AND  ANYOX  HERALD,  Saturday, Ootober 8, 1932

Partial Review of
Kidd Committee Report
The report of the Kidd Committee, whioh was appointed to investigate the precarious financial
situation of the province, continues
to be discussed by almost every
newspaper and periodical in the
province, and many organizations
have discussed it aud passed resolutions regarding it Some
have condemned it wholesale, others
have endorsed it, while others have
condemned the errors and lauded
the balance.
Every organization has viewed
the Report from its own point of
view. Its recommendations suit
perfectly the business men of big
southern cities, but happily for them
the whole of the province is not
confined to Vancouver and Victoria.
What is satisfactory for Vancouver
and Victoria does not suit the more
sparsely populated portions of the
province, and we have as much
right as taxpayers to condemn as
others have to praise.
In the north, the life of the pioiv
eer is a continual battle with na^
tare. Even in the boom periods,
when the southern business men
are piling up huge profits, the people living in the small towns and
hamlets are little affected. When
hard times come conditions are
worse, and if all the recommendations embodied in the Kidd Report
were adopted by any government,
conditions would become unbearable. Some of our readers may
ask why?   Let us explain.
In the first plaoe the province as
a whole fully agrees that our expenditures must be cut. That our
budget must be balanced, and the
practice of borrowing money to pay
interest on money already borrowed
must stop. That we must reduce
our debt, or forever be forced to
carry an almost unbearable burden
in the form of paying interest on1
borrowed money, which amounts
to approximately $8,000,000 a year.
We have to thank the supporters
of the Kidd Committee for so forcefully bringing the financial situation of the province to the people,
and much good may result. But
do not condemn the government
too much.
. Anyone who has lived in the
north for the past twenty-four
years as we have done, knows full
well that the people forced the
hand of various governments to
spend money on not only roads,
trails, bridges, publio buildings,
etc. but also upon railways.
Let us, said the business men of
Vanoouver and Victoria, develop
our vast potential mineral, agricul
tural, and timber wealth that now
lies dormant in the vast undeveloped portions of the provinoe. Let
us build roads, trails, bridges, so
that these empty plaoea can be populated and the wealth exploited.
They forced the government to do
so, and the same business men employe'! hundreds of men to go out
and stake the timber lands and
agricultural lands, and grub-staked
prospectors to search the hills for
metals. Then the cry was raised
for more immigrants aud oapital,
and both were brought in. Men
and women flocked from all over
the world to make their home iu
Canada's western province. English capital poured in to build the
railways. American and Eastern
Canadian capital came and developed our mines, pulp and paper
mills, agricultural lands and timber. Homes were hewed out of the
wilderness. Small towns, dotted
the landscape. Prices of all commodities were high, and everything
was lovely. It will be no trouble
to pay off the money borrowed for
the development of our natural
resources everyone said. Our increased prosperity will take care
of that. Then came the depression.
Prioes dropped. Trade was stagnated. The government, similar
to many industrial concerns, found
themselves in financial difficulties,
and the very people that previously
clamored for unlimited government
expenditure, turned and condemned, or to use a colloquial expression
"Passed the Buck."
That is the reason why the population of the province is scattered
over such a wide area. This scattering is deplored by the Kidd
Committee, but whose fault is it?
Now they would like to de-populate the sparsely settled areas by
stopping all work on roads, trails,
etc., both mining and agriculture;
close our schools so that our children would grow up in ignorance,
thus making living conditions
impossible. They would also
abandon the P. O. E. Railway, and
force thousands of people to leave
their homes, and again transform
that section of the provinoe to a
wilderness. The cost of closing
would eventually be greater than
the cost of operation.
In commenting on money expended for mining roads etc., the
Report says:
"The 'Mines Development Aoti
authorizes the expenditure of public moneys towards the making of
trails, roads and bridges to facilitate the operation aud development I
of mining properties.
"We are of opinion that all ex.
peuditures under this Act must
cease until the Budget is balanced,
and that then the grant should be
limited to $25,000, with a limitation of $1,000 expenditure to aid
any one mining property or camp."
In connection with roadR, etc.
undertaken by the Publio Works
Department, the recommendations
are:
'That all construction work on
new highways and buildings be
discontinued at once, and that all
expenditures on roads be confined
for the present to such maintenance and betterments as are
essential;
"That no further expenditures
be made on surveys for the proposed Alaskan Highway, upon which
$35,249.42 was spent in 1930-31."
In reviewing the expenditures of
the Education Department the
Kidd Committee arrived at some
queer decisions in their endeavor to
curtail expenses. In addition to
charging fees for every pupil over
fourteen years throughout the
province, they advocate the closing
of many small schools. Here are
some of the recommendations:
"The'Public Sohools Act' provides that a public school may be
established in a rural district if
there are not less than ten children
between the ages of six and sixteen years residing within its
boundaries aud available for
attendance at public school. We
recommend that this be amended
so that there must be a minimum
of fifteen children between the ages
of six and fourteen years.
"The Act also provides for the
establishment of a High Sohool if
there are 15 persons available as
pupils at such school. We recom
mend that this number be increas'
to twenty.
"The Aofc provides that a publio
school in a municipal school district shall be closed if the average
attendance falls below 8, or below
6 in a rural school district. We
recommend that both these numbers be changed to 10.
"The Act also provides that a
High School shall be closed where
the average attendance falls below
10. We recommend that this fig-
,ure be increased to fifteen.

If they are in favor of closing
schools why not olose all of them?
Why pick on the smaller schools?
Are not the children of the small
towns as much entitled to an education as those of the larger-
Regarding the correspondence
courses recommended, the committee is in error when they state that
a large number of children receive
public school education through
correspondence courses. It is impossible.
Imagine a child of 6 or 7 years
of age that does not know A from
B or 1 from 2 carrying on a correspondence course with a teacher
situated at Victoria.
Even if it was possible it would
mean a flock of school teachers
stationed at Victoria, trying to instruct pupils they had never seen,
instead of sending them to different
parts of the province. The few
paltry dollars saved by closing a
number of rural schools won't go
very far towards balancing the
budget. But it would be instrumental in raising to man and womanhood hundreds and perhaps
thousands of native born citizens
who could neither read or write.

groom's gift to the best man was a
set of military brushes. The young
couple will reside at the Mine.
Word was received on Saturday
last that Neil Scott, formerly of
Anyox, had passed away in Saskatchewan. Mr. Scott was for many
years a resident of Anyox.
Through an accident while following his calling as a brakeman he
lost his right leg, and was consequently an invalid for some time.
He left Anyox about two years
ago for Saskatchewan, where he
married and settled down to a quiet
life on a farm. He was known to
a great many people here and was
much respected.
An ounce of confidence in yourself
is worth more than a ton of depen
deuce on other people.

Marlene   Dietrich,   Clive   Brook,
Anna May Wong,   Warner Oland,
Eugene Pallette, Lawrence Grant,
A famous reviewer says:  "Of many
thousand pictures viewed during a
ten   year   period,   "Shanghai Ex.
press" is the finest—the most fascinating.    Von Sternberg (director)
Dietrich, Brook, and the rest have
attained perfection.    There is no
jarring note to  mar this   cinema
symphony."   Never   has   Marlene
Dietrich   reached   greater heights
and never has she appeared so alluring.    Her close-ups are quite the
most beautiful pictures to be seen
upon the screen.    Put Clive Brook
in a British uniform and he is perfection.    And the brooding Anna
May Wong personifies the tragedy
of the East.    A leavening of laughter is supplied by those accomplished technicians, Gene Pallette and L.
C. Hale.   And when it comes to
Oriental villainy try to top Warner
Oland!   The  picture is a mighty
triumph for Paramount.    Do not
miss this lovely, thrilling picture on
Saturday.

TUESDAY, OCT. 11th.
This picture was written up in our
last issue for production on Tuesday
the 4th. but the reels failed to ap.
pear in time. It will definitely appear on Tuesday. A further review
convinces us that it is a delightful
story, produced in a new and refreshing mood, and that you will
thoroughly enjoy it. Helen Twelve-
trees is a stranger to Anyox picture
lovers.   See her on Tuesday.
