Nearly 200 Honor The
Memory of Bobbie
Burns
One hundred and eighty people
attended a real old fashioned
Burns' dinner and dance in the
Mine Hall on Monday the 25th. to
celehrate the anniversary of Scot
land's immortal bard. The dinner
was a most enjoyable one, and the
whole evening was pronounced to
he one of the best ever spent in
Anyox.
The proceedings were commenced
with the giving of the "Selkirk
Grace" by Mr. Jack Russell. The
haggis was then brought in with
due pomp and ceremony by Mr.
James Wardrope, to the accompaniment of the pipes played by Mr.
J Shields. The bearer of the haggis was assisted by Misses Bessie
Barclay and Helen MoLeod. It
was placed before Mr. James MoMillan, who gave in a most effici
ent manner, Burns' "Address to the
Haggis," whereupon it was imme
diately toasted by the whole company.
After the dinner toasts were
I honored as follows: "Immortal
I Memory," proposed by T. J. Kirkwood; "The Lassies," proposed by
Mr. J. Shields, and very ably responded to by Mrs. James McMillan; "The King," proposed by Mr.
Angus McLean.
The floor was then cleared, and
danoing was indulged in to splen
did musio supplied by Sid Arm
strong and his orchestra. The
Circassian Cirele was the first
number, followed by such old time
Scotch dances as the quadrilles,
reels, Highland fling, patronella,
schottisohe and waltzes. Mr.
Donald Morrison was the able
Master of Ceremonies.
During the evening, Mrs. J. M.
Dunn sang: "Star of Robbie
Burns," responding with "Ca the
Yowes tae the Knowes. Mr. J.
McRitohie sang "Sandy McNab,''
and gave as an enoore an appropriate Scotch nnmberi and Mr.
James Boyd sang in fine voice,
"My Ain Folk." Misses Helen
MoLeod and Bessie Barolay danced
in beautiful style the Highland
Fling.
Mr. T. J. Kirkwood was the
chairman for the evening, performing his duties with thoroughness,
and pointing his remarks with a
wit, sparkle and zest that kept the
oompany at their best. The committee   in    oharge    were    Mrs.
Investigated Applications For
Direct Relief
H. S. Hoskins, Government
Agent at Anyox, spent the week
end at Alice Arm, arriving on Saturday and leaving on Monday.
His visit was in connection with
the granting of direct relief to applicants of this district. During
his stay he interviewed eaoh applicant personally and the result of
his efforts convinced him that all
those desiring direct relief were entitled to it.
Snowfall At Alice Arm Is
Above Averagel
Alice Arm presents a real winter
appearance, At the present time
the snow measures 4 feet 1 inch on
the level. It is solid snow that has
been settled by rains and warm
winds.
This is above the average height
for the month of January. If the
district receives its usual snowfall
during the month of February and
the first part of March, it is possible
that, from two to four feet willbe
added to that already lying on the
ground.
Snow shovelling has been the
popular outdoor sport during the
past week.

Wildcats, High School
And Store Won On
Friday
Three excellent;games of basketball were played on Friday the
22nd. In tho boys' intermediate
game the Wildoats made another
killing, cleaning ■ up the Scouts
with a score of 16 to 8. The1
Scouts, however, played well, and
with a little better combination
should give a much better account
of themselves at the next fixture.
A splendid game was played
between the ladies' teams—the
Spooks and High School. So close
was the checking that the very
low score of 8 to 4 was the final
result, the students taking the top
end. With a strong line-up of the
Spooks a very different result
could have reasonably been expected, and we expect a come-back by
this team at an early date.
ln the Men's Senior game between the Store and the Vandals,
the Store turned in their first
victory of the season. The fans
are wondering why they waited
this long before displaying their
wares, for they really have ' the
goods," as was demonstrated.
They played well, Ringly and collectively. It was a fine game
throughout and well worth watching.   The final soore was 14 to 10.
Anyox Orchestra Will
Give Two Concerts
The Anyox Amateur Orchestra,
under the leadership of Mr, J. Peel,
announce two concerts, one at the
Mine Hall on February 14th. and
the other, in all probability on
Wednesday the 17th. in the Beach
Recreation Hall. As a result of
careful rehearsing this ambitious
orchestra is now ready to put up a
really noteworthy performance, so
that the concerts announced will be
sure to prove a treat for all those
who attend. Further details will
be announced later.

Daughter Born  to Former
Anyox Residents
Word has been received in
Anyox that a daughter has been
born to Mr. and Mrs. Len Goedbloed, both formerly of Anyox.
Mrs.. Goedbloed was formerly Miss
Patrick of the hospital staff and
Mr. Goedbloed was a member of
the Assay Office staff. Mrs. and
Mrs. Goedbloed are now residing
at Nelson, B. C. They were married in Vancouver in the early
spring of last year.
Receiving an urgent message by
telegram on Monday morning to the
effect that her mother was seriously
ill, Mrs. J. A. D. Stewart caught
the "Catala" for Vancouver, from
which point she will journey to
Naniamo, where her mother is critically ill. The home of Mrs. Stewart's mother is in Parksville,
twenty-six miles from Naniamo.
Mrs. Stewart was fortunate in
being able to make an immediate
start on her journey when she received the wire.
Mill Basketballers Defeated
Store on Monday
In the game played on Monday
the 25th. between the Conoentra-
tor and the Store, the Millmen
turned in the winning card showing 20 points against ten by the
Store. The latter team were not
quite so brilliant as in their previous game. At the present time
the three senior teams are fairly
closely matched.

Badminton  Club Hold
Very Successful
Tournament
On Wednesday the 27th. the
Anyox Badminton Club held a
tournament in the tJymnasium,
fourteen couples competing. The
play was divided over two courts,
each couple playing six games.
As in the previous tournament, the
third court was utilized an much
as possible and again justified its
existence by cutting down the
time of the tournament considerably. Some close scores were reg
istered. On No. 1 Court the
winners were Mrs. Stretton and
T. Cloke with a- soore of 87, the
runners up, Captain Johnston and
Miss F. Dresser, being only one
point behind   with  a score of 86.
On No. 2 Court M' *■ "rft*A and
Mr. C. Edwards were the winners
with a score of 91, closely followed
by Miss D. Grigg and Mr. C. P.

latter pair made the only perfect
score recorded in the toif'.iay.
" The 'games were very keenly
contested, and the evening was a

Expenditures of Dept.
Of Education Are
Explained
The accompanying statement
shows in detail the amount of
money estimated to pass through
'.he Education Department during
the year ending March 31st, 1932.
This amount is looked upon by
many people of the Province as
being a Government expenditure,
and, as such, being excessive.
On examination it will be seen
that very little of it is Government
expenditure in the proper sense, as
$96.00 out of* every S100.00 are
used in providing cash grants to
educational institutional services
that the people would otherwise
have to do without or provide for
themselves.
If this Department is to reduce
its expenditure to any appreciable
amount, the educational services
such as Correspondence instruction
to children in remote parts of the
Province, industrial education (such
as Manual training and Home Economics), training of teachers, and
the maintenance of the school for
the blind must be curtailed.
In addition, the cash grants to
Municipalities, rural school districts
the University, etc. must be lessened.
Letters have been sent out to th
Municipal School Boards, notifying
them of the reduction of grants
that must be made in order to reduce the expenditure of the Department.
Present grants to the rural school
districts will be continued to the end
of June, as these districts have already made provisions for their ii-:
nances to that date. During the
coming session the amount of
reduction in grants will be definitely decided upon, so that the rural
boards will know before the anuual
meeting in July exactly what Government assistance they will receive.
Sun Life Assurance Co.
In Strong Financial
Position
Montreal, Jan. 23—In keeping
with encouraging news from various
lines of business, indicating an improvement in general conditions, is
the report that assurances in force
with the Sun Lite of Canada passed
the three billion mark. In spite of
theunprecedeiitedeconomicupheaval
throughout the world, the company
wrote over five hundred millions of
paid-for new business during the
year just ended. The income
shows a large increase over the pre-
• Ivious year and is understood to have
been not much under two hundred
million dollars.
Insurance institutions are least
affected by depressions, for life insurance is essentially a long-term
proposition and its investments
must of necessity be made to cover
a period of years. Insurance companies are more concerned, therefore,
with the earning power of their in-
vestements than their market values. ' jm reports gleaned in the
financial district it is understood
that the assets are now more than
six hundred million, and that it has
made new investments during 1931
of over fifty million dollars. It is
known that during the year the Sun
Life purchased government bonds
alone to the extent of over twenty-
three millions of dollars.

Seven Seas Traversed
IV e passed in luxurious comfort, free from any
care or irritating responsibility and absolutely
without one disturbing incident from continent to
continent," stated Lady Williams-Taylor on her return
from a world cruise on board the Canadian Pacific
liner, the "Empress of Australia," during which tour
five continents, twenty-one countries and twenty-six
ports were visited and seven seas traversed.
"With sheltered ease," continued Lady Taylor,
"we had unfolded to us the soul-penetrating magnificence and-the somewhat repellart fanatical conditions
of India and distraught, yet ever thrillingly interesting China. We steamed up and down the dangerous
Pearl River, and saw first-hand the devastation of
Canton. Mysterious Java, and almost untouched
lumatra, held us spellbound.   Singapore and its ever
growing docks amazed us, and lovely Ceylon enchanted ue. But Hawaii wound itself about out
hearts and, to its haunting 'Aloha Oe,' we saw it
fade away through regretful tears. Not only art
the islands more than fascinating, but tbe Royal
Hawaiian Hotel would tempt any traveller to return.
"After such a wonder tour of 133 days," concluded
Lady Taylor, "we 'Lotus Eating Tourists' have once
again to face the realities of ordinary existence without the untiring supervision and perfect organization
of the mighty and far-reaching Canadian Pacific
Railway and Steamship's protection and care of us.
It was, indeed, with hearts full of gratitude and
appreciation for our splendid captain, his staff, and
for the constant and devoted attention of the cruise
directors, that we finally bid farewell to our floating
home—-the 'Emoress of Australia.'"
Fairy Rhymes Come True
"Hey diddle, diddlel
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon . . ,
In our childhood days we accepted the above as
gospel, the world being then new and wonderful
where anything might happen. But it remained for
the year 1930 to make it partly true with the airplane
flight of Strathmore Hanna Fairchild, prize Holstein
calf of the C.P.R. Experimental Farm at Strathmore,
to Calgary and back. Little Hanna whose mother's
half sister is the famous Strathmore Sylvia with a
record of 29,371 pounds of milk in one year, was
clad for her journey in a pneumonia jacket. Her
feet were secured and a strong sack placed around
her up to the neck.' She lay quiet in the plane and
seemed to like her trip. Lay-out shows Hanna who
was named after John H. Hanna, secretary of the
Calgary Board of Trade, greeted by a number of
leading Calgarians and visitors on her arrival. Inset
shows her peering out of her pneumonia jacket
aboard the plane.
