Oddfellows Win From
Celts By Narrow
The usual number of spectators
showed up at the gym Wednesday
evening and watched the juveniles
throw the ball around until the
players scheduled to perform at
7:30 appeared on the scene. Basketball is apparently going to be a
success when a new generation of
performers has grown up. No
girls' game was played. The Beach
are in great need of two or three
more ladies who are willing to
practice and play just for the fun of
Under the new schedule the Oddfellows engaged the Celts and almost lost. Early in the game the
Celts were leading at 8-5 but the
twenty-minute period seemed to fag
them and at half time they were on
the short end of 13-9. Some fast
work early in the second half pulled
the score up to 17-15. At this
point Ernie Barclay was marked
down for the fourth foul and it
looked as if the Oddfellows would
have to finish with an uneven number of players. A search of the
hall uncovered J. Cloke who had to
take the floor without changing before the time-out period should
close. His sojourn in the game
was imperilled when his conversations with the referee drew two
technical fouls which, however, the
Celts failed to convert. Playing
more coolly than their opponents the
lodge members managed to nurse a
four-point lead through to the end.
They had a shifting attack and defence that worked well and the
Celts' ill-advised long passes usually fell into the hands of the enemy.
For the winners McDonald was in
rare form.
Oddfellows: T. Cloke-1, C. Dres-
ser-6, S. Steele-4, A. McDonald-14,

The annual meeting of trie
Anyox Community League will be
held on Wednesday February
26th. On that date the members
of the League will be called upon
to elect a new Council, to conduct
operations for another year. Looking back over the past year, even
the pessimist must admit that the
League has made great progress.
During the past few months a
greater interest has been taken by
the people of Anyox in the operations of the League than at any
previous time. The present Council have striven to popularize the
organization by doing everything
in their power to provide indoor
and outdoor sport. The library
has also been considerably improved by the addition of many new
books. The reading room has
also received attention, and the
best films procurable has been
shown at the picture shows at a
low price unobtainable anywhere
in the province. The children
have also received every consideration in the way of recreation and
amusement. That the efforts of
the Council have been appreciated
is evidenced by the fact that the
membership has increased during
the past few months. The members of the present Council have
fulfilled their duties efficiently, and
it may be possible to elect them
for another term. Failing this, it
is the duty of the members of the
League   to   elect   broad-minded

A STOCK Exchange is
essentially a Public
Service doing its best to
make trading secure and
While this work has far-
reaching results, the first
principles of operation are
simple. Somebody gives a
broker an order. By cable
or phone the broker's
"floor"-man gets the
order for execution. The
price paid for the stock is
the official quotation on
the "floor" at exactly that
time. The seller writes a
triplicate record of the
transaction, timed mechanically to with a tenth-
second. Buyer, seller and
Exchange each retain one
copy. So every sale is permanently recorded and
made known on the
Stock prices on the floor
of the Exchange are controlled by orders received
from the Public to buy
and sell. The Exchange
exercises no control over
fluctuations. Like a loudspeaker it simply broadcasts the trading minute
by minute. Regulations
governing trading were
accepted by the Provincial
Parliament In session in
1907. No trading can take
place between members
off the "floor." The Stock
Exchange itself has nothing to do with arrangements between brokers
and clients. Being members of the Exchange,
brokers are directly servants   of   the   investing
Public and must follow
the instructions of their
clients. Every broker depends on his business to
keep the confidence of his
clients. Obviously, It Is
against his own best interests in any way to do
anything but to supply
clients with the facts
concerning a company or ,
a market situation.
The principles governing
the Vancouver Stock Exchange are similar to
those of London and New
York. And as London's
and New York's exchanges
have performed great
services to business in
Great Britain and the
United States, so must
one agree that the Exchange in Vancouver has
influenced investors to
pay attention to industries in Western Canada.
The securities of these
dustries have been affected by recent unsettled
conditions. Whether
prices have been high or
low, their real value consists In what properties
can earn from year to
year. Recent market
movements have been
largely illusory. Western
Canada's resources and
productive capacities have
not been affected. On the
contrary the FACTS indl-
cate even greater development. The Stock Exchange and its members
stand pledged to play
their part in making
this progress sound and
These four services are important to business . . . their truthful

Trading  In Stocks Is
Basically Simple
During the past period of intensive trading on the Vancouver
Stock Exchange, improvements
have been made to the system which
makes trading here comparable in
efficiency with practices in leading
exchanges of the world, according
to Charles G. Pennock, President
of the Vancouver Stock Exchange.
The Vancouver Stock Exchange
operates on the "post" system
which permits trading in different
stocks simultaneously at the various stations on the "floor". The
operation of buying and selling has
been simplified.
An investor gives his broker an
order to buy stock. This order is
conveyed to the broker's representative on the "floor" and offered for
sale. Should another broker hold
a buying order for the same stock,
he shouts "sold'' and the transaction is complete. The price paid is
the official price quotation for that
stock. Records are kept in triplicate and automatically time-stamped to within a tenth-second.
The Vancouver Stock Exchange
is merely a machine giving a necessary service to investors. It is
operated on a system passed and
approved by the Provincial Government.

Expenditures of Tourists To
Be Checked Up
While the financial benefits accruing from tourist traffic are admitted, Government officials are endeavouring to establish some more
accurate method of establishing the(
value to the country. The present
plan of averaging tourist expenditure at $10 per head per day is the
veriest guess work. Many tourists
do not spend that amount and
boast of the fact. The system of
counting tourists is also to undergo
revision, it being shown that the
same party has appeared no fewer
than four times in the returns as
four different parties.
