renditions of "Venetian Carnival,"
"Morning, Noon and Night," and

pupils did excellently, the tap dancing, especially by the older girls,
being distinctly good. Patty Jac.
Stewart was bewitching in a pretty
little solo dance. Joyce Pinckney
and Mary Kent in a "Couple

The surprise of the ever was
provided by the Kitchen cabinet

unique instruments, caused much
favorable comment. Coal shove's
were made into violins, strainers
into guitars, bakeboards into bass
fiddles, and washtubs into drums.
The pleasing selections of popular
songs, old-time melodies, and national airs were given with sweetness, and nice musical judgement,
captivated everyone. These ladies
deserve every praise for their efforts
to provide a real musical novelty.

Copper Conference Has
Many Difficulties
To Solve
The following is a part of the
report of the copper conference
now being held in New York, published in the Financial News on
October 22nd.
New York—Restriction of copper output to 40 per cent of capacity was proposed by Camile Gutt
of Belgium, representing the Union
Miniere du Haut Katanga, on his
arrival for the conference. He
held that the attitude of Canadian
companies would govern the ultimate success of the conference.
Belgium and United States producers expressed willingness to
curtail output. It. C. Stanley,
president of International Nickel
Co. of Canada, said he had no com
ment to make at present.
New York—The conference of
the world's important copper producers, which started this week on
the arrival of representatives of
the large African interests, will
meet obstacles in reaching an
agreement as to how to solve the
difficulties of the industry, which
are due almost entirely to overproduction, according to some persons familiar with the problems.
It is believed that it will be most
difficult to work out a practicable
plan that at the same time will be
acceptable to all producers, which
it must be in order to be successful
in view of the many conflicting
ideas and the different operating
problems of the various companies.
Copper output of the world is
estimated at 120,000 tons monthly
of which producers representing
about 90,000 tons are oo operating
in the curtailment agreement and
will be represented at the conference. To get output in line with
consumption co operating producers will have to cut their yield
about 30,000 tons monthly or
about 33 1-3 % further. Consumption appears to be showing
few if any signs of increasing soon,
and consequently many producers
oppose the making of further sacrifices for the benefit of the non co
operating copper mines.
As a result, many in the indus
try favor gradually eliminating the
high-cost producer by letting the
prioe decline, which would turn
the market over to the low-oost
operator. It is held by those interested that no reason exists for
low oost domestic producers to
make severe sacrifices while others
are not willing to do their share.
Consequently, the success of the
Continued on page 2 ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD, Saturday, October 31, 1931
Copper Conference Has
Many Difficulties
To Solve
Continued from page 1
conference is not definitely assured,
it is argued, and it is doubtful if
the meeting will work out as /.expected by some persons not thoroughly acquainted with the [industry.
At the June conference some
producers were of the opinion that
a complete shutdown of mines for
a few months until stocks were
reduced to a normal working basis
was the only practical solution of
the over-production problem. This
was objected to strenuously by
some interests ou the theory that
it would just clear up the situation
so that when production in Northern Rhodesia started iu a big way
early next year that section would
reap the advantage of a shut-down
without participating in it. Ail-
other argument was that operations would have to be resumed
on a low basis, which would result in increasing the cost of production, or else the same unhealthy
statistical position soon would
exist again.
Some persons in the industry,
including the Belgian group operating the larga Katanga mine in
Africa and an important American
interest, do not believe the production end is preponderantly important in the solution of the industry's
difficulties and put considerable
emphasis ou marketing schemes.
The rank and file of the industry,
however, is opposed to attempting
any solution along these lines because of the disastrous results in
the past.
Most producers are still of the
opinion that pegging the price at
18 cents a pound in lat9 1929 and
early 1930 was partly responsible
for the present unsettlement in the
industry and frankly do not want
any more artificial price levels
established. Development of .the
Northern Rhodesian deposits and
probably tlie important copper
properties of International Nickel
would have been delayed, is is said
had copper prices not been established at such a high artificial
Considerable dissatisfaction exists in tlie industry because of the
curtailment agreement entered
into last November. There is a
feeling that tbe Katanga group, to
which was allowed a monthly output of 22,000,000 lbs., got more
than its share. Until 1930, the
most copper that Katanga ever
produced was 25,000,000 lbs. a
month but it is asserted that before
the curtailment) conference last
November, production jumped to
33,000,000 lbs. a month. As a
result the Katanga mine, in which
the Belgium government holds
control of the voting stock, is
turning out as much copper as it
over did, while producers here are
operating at about 35 to 40 per
cent, of capacity.
The attitude of Canadian companies is also causing some dissatis
faction. Virtually all copper production in Canada is obtained as a
byproduct from other mining
operations and the companies assert that they must produce copper
to run their nickel, lead, zinc and
gold mines. To provide as much
work as possible, the Dominion
government is opposed to curtailing mining operations there.
No real market has existed for
copper metal in several months.
Producers have turned the market
over entirely to the custom smelters at 7 cents a pound in the domestic market. Some had contracts
above price, but most of these will
expire soon or at the end of the
year. Others not having contracts
are said to be storing tlieir output.
As custom smelters are keeping
the market well supplied with
metal at 7 cents a pound, producers, if they should want to sell any
copper, would be compelled to dis
pose of it at 7 cents a pound or less.
Unless demand picks up suddenly,
indications are that a further decline in price would occur if producers should re-enter the market.
Production from Northern Rhodesia, which is just beginning to
come on the market, will tend to
keep prices from advancing if it
does not actually bring about a
decline. The Roan Antelope group
in  Northern Rhodesia   has   been
turning out the metel since July
and  the output last  month    ap-

Will Rogers, often called the

local bow in Mark Twain's greatest
comedy satire, the Fox production
of "A Connecticut Yankee" at the
Anyox theatre today.
Advance reports hail this talking

The Rogers'version of "A Connecticut Yankee" has been completely modernized, and contains
many witticisms of the inimitable

Canadian Engineer Inaugurates
Radio System in New Waldorf Hotel

especially appropriate to members of the
Canadian Pacific Railway Police, not only for the
smart touch thus added to their blue uniform, but
because they are emblematic of the force itself; an
organization of spotless reputation and unfailing
courtesy. Not only is this picked body of men,
uniformed and ununiformed, the safeguard of the
property of the world's greatest transportation
system and its thousands of patrons, but its members
are friends and mentors to countless travellers in all
part of the Dominion. Wherever the company has
an interest, be it a great terminal, a wharf or a vast
freight yard, "the man in blue" is to be found.
Many of the constables and their officers are ex-
servicemen and at their head is Brigadier-General
E. de B. Panet, C.M.G., D.S.O., A.D.C., a distinguished Canadian soldier with a splendid record
as a staff officer during the Great War. The force has
won many trophies for first-aid work and also in
revolver shooting, its Ontario team having captured
the Canadian police revolver championship tor the
whole Dominion this year.
