Mrs. Dwyer Tells  of
Work Done at P. T. A.
Convention
• The regular monthly meeting of
the Parent-Teacher Association
was held in the Public Sohool, on
Tuesday evening. The meeting
was very well attended.
Mr.lt. H. Manzer gave his report
regarding the total receipts collected by the sale of tiokets for Mr,
MoRaye's lecture, which amounted
to $89.75. He also thanked the
Community League for their willing co-operation and support in
splitting the deficit with the P. T.
A. in connection with the expense
of tho leoture. Thanks were also
extended to the Anyox band who
helped to make the evening more
enjoyable; also to all those who so
willingly rendered assistance.
It was decided at the meeting
that an Executive Meeting be held
nest month.
Mrs. 0. K. Dwyer, delegate to
the Annual Convention held in
Vancouver during Easter week,
representing the Anyox Association
gave a very interesting summary
of the happenings at the meeting,
which proved interesting to all
present.
There were 23 resolutions submitted by the executive of the
Provincial Parent-Teacher Federation of B. G, regarding the school
survey report to the Annual Convention.
At this Convention many topics
of vital interest were raised and
> discussed by very able speakers all
for the welfare of our coming generation.
A large number of resolutions
were passed, which will be consid-
I ered by the Department of Education. . Among which were the fol-
| lowing:
Whereas this school 'is planned
I to minister to the needs of the adolescent pupil, to make provision
for varying tastes aud abilities and
to enable to make a wise vocational
and educational choice. Be it
therefore resolved that the Department of Education be asked to
approve for any middle class school
only that programme of studies
which provide for a sufficient range
of elective subjects and for the
necessary physical education to
realize the accepted aims of the
Middle school.
Be it resolved that the Provincial
I Parent Teacher Federation petition
the Honorable the Minister of Education to put into effect as soon as
possible those recommendations of
sohool survey that are outlined in
mapter 17 bearing on the Equalisation of the bureau of school taxation.
Resolved that this  Convention
fpprove the reorganization of the
ohool system of B. G as advised
iy the school survey with six years
Slementary school, three years

North Star Bonded to a
Canadian Company
Joins the Dolly Varden
The North Star property has
been bonded to a Canadian Mining
Co. and development work will be
undertaken this summer.
No further details oan be learned
except what has been given above,
hut our readers will probably
draw theirown conclusions as to'
whom the Canadian company are.
The North Star is owned by 0.
Evindson and associates who staked
it shortly after obtaining a bond on
the Dolly Varden. It joins the
Dolly Varden on the north.
The operation of the North Star
will make the twelfth property to
be operated this summer.
The North Star was under option some years ago to J. McAleenan; J. Zarelli, who did considerable work on it, but financial difi-
culties forced them to close.
Some large bodies of silver ore
are known to exist, containing
native and ruby silver and argentite.
The Dolly Varden workings are
within 750 feet of the North Star
workings. The ledges are of the
same character, and the ore exactly
similiar, so it is reasonable to assume that the Dolly Varden and
North Star ledges are one ledjge.
The Anyox Girl Guides wish to
thank all those who helped to
make their first Sale such a success, especially the Rev. Clarke for
the use of the United Church
basement, and Mr. Mellin for the
box of chocolates.
Bob Strand will manage the
Mine Club baseball affairs for the
season. His unanimous appointment at a meeting held on Sunday
was received with much enthusiasm.
same as junior Matriculation.
Whereas the changes from our
present 8-4 school system to the
0-3-3 recommended by. the survey
commission, must of necessity be
made gradually, and whereas compulsory manual training for boys,
and domestic science for girls are
among the outstanding changes
recommended, and for one or both
of these subjeots. Therefore be it
resolved that as a preliminary step
toward the change in the system,
that manual training for boys and
home economics for girls be made
oompulsory, wherever possible
throughout the provinoe.
That legislation set aside the
bill excluding clergymen from
School Boards.
That an extra room be added to
one-room schools for the privacy of
the teacher.
P. T. petition the Dept. of Education that a minimum appropriation
be set aBide for every olass of
sohool in the Provinoe for Library
purposes to be charged to equipment.
All the above resolutions oarried.
Monday, 10th.

In publishing the report of the
party given to Miss Janet Morley,
in last week's issue, two regrettable
errors occurred. The first one
was a misplaced word in the heading, aud the second, which referred
to ''Mrs. Morley" should have read
Mrs. "Maolntominy." We regret
that these errors occurred, and a
number of causes were responsible.
It is our aim to keep the Herald as
clear of errors as possible, but
sometimes we slip, to our own
embarrassment and also those who
are personally interested.
Extension of Alice Arm
Road System
Gradually, year by year, Alice
Arm progresses toward that goal
which is the ambition of every
new town, i.e., a well laid out town
with graded streets and sidewalks,
flanked by business houses in the
commercial portion of the town,
and snug residences with shady
lawns in the residential district.
This year the government have
decided to extend the road from
the Welcome Hotel to the lower
section of the town. This will be
a great advantage, as it will encourage the erection of permanent
buildings, and give better access to
the lower end.
With the exception of this road,
no new work has been planned by
the Public Works Department.
It is possible, however, that new
work may he undertaken later,
but this depends entirely upon
what activity develops in the mining industry during the summer.
At the present time, there are
enough local men available to
handle the work.
Anyox Rifle Club Elect
Officers for Year
A meeting was held on Monday
evening by the members of the

hope that the Club will increase in

Hon J. A. Robb, federal minister of finance, has announced tax
reductions totalling some $25,000,-
000. This is the most encouraging news, for Canadians since the
armistice was signed in 1918, and
should be the turning point from a
depression period to long and increased prosperity. An annual
cut in taxes of $25,000,000 for
the next few years, would clinch
the prosperity of Canada with a
sledge-hammer blow. It would
increase our population, and it
would encourage that spirit of Can-
adianism that is being preached
throughout the land from press
and platform. Lower taxes will
encourage manufacturers, mining
operators and business men, to
extend their operations. It will
stimulate the building of homes by
the wage earners. It will attract
home our Canadian emigrants
across the international line, and it
will act as magnet to thousands of
home seekers from the debt ridden,
highly taxed countries of Europe.
Viewed from any angle, low taxes
spells prosperity, not spasmodic,
but permanent. Now that the
government has thrown open the
doors for prosperity to walk in, it
is for the manufacturer, transportation companies and others who
handle our commodities to do their
part and exert themselves to keep
prices of goods at as low a level
as possible. It has been the practice, since the war to extort from
the public the last nickel. Such a
policy is suicidal, for it drives people from the country, and the
goose that lays the golden egg is
lost. The government have shown
wisdom in reducing taxes. It is
now up to everyone to do their
part and also display their wisdom
by doing their utmost to develop
our glorious Dominion.
Anyone who is connected with
the finance department from the
Hon. J. A. Robb, down to a local
tax gatherer,—who sends you a
notice to pay your taxes after you
have already paid them—is considered by the distressed taxpayer as
a legalized robber.   It is lucky for
Mr. Robb that the "er" was never
tacked to the end of his name or it
would have been hard to convince
even his greatest admirers that he
was'nt a robber. Mr. Robb
may have robbed us in the past,
but his robber days are over, let us
hope. Instead of classing Mr.
Robb as a robber we will have to
put him in the robin class, who is
always welcome at this time of the
year.
Surf Inlet Mine Dismantling
Dismantling of the Belmont-Snrf

is understood that there is still another

Fire Threatens
Our National
Heritage
Carelessness  Destroys
3,000,000 acres annually
of Canadian Forest
Loss of standing timber by fire continues to be appalling. On the average, over
3,500 million board feet are destroyed annually. The forests of Canada are being
depleted at a rate they cannot possibly
withstand; more than half of this depletion
is due to fire, insects and decay. The
future of the forest industry is just as dependent on the sedling trees and young growth
as the pulp and paper and lumber mills,
and industry generally, are dependent on
mature timber—both must be saved from
the ravages of fire.
In addition to the shelter afforded by the
forest to the farmer and his stock, settlers in
forested regions are vitally dependent on the
woods for winter employment. Care with fire
in land-clearing operations is all-essential—
BURNED TIMBER PAYS NO WAGES.
Canada has the finest inland fishing in the
world, bnt these splendid food and game fish
require clean, cold water in the streams to ensure
prolific reproduction. Forest fires are inimical to
fish life.
Game animals attract foreign tourists and
induce Canadians to seek pleasure, health and
adventure in the great outdoors. These animals
are distinctly a forest resource—utterly dependent on it for protection and food. Forest fires are
most destructive of such wild life.
Ninety per cent of the forest fires are
caused by carelessness. Are you doing your
part to prevent this wanton waste and destruction?
