evening were as follows: "The
King", proposed by T. Kirkwood;
"Canada", C. O. Fricker; "The
Navy", Dr. D. R. Learoyd; responded to by Geo. Lace; "Fallen Comrades" E. Ashton; "Nursing Sisters"
F. Graham and Miss M. J. Stewart
At the conclusion of the banquet,
several vocal selections were rendered, and the old time war songs
were again sung with enthusiasm
by everyone. A reminder of the
days of the fields of France and
Belgium or the burning sands of
Mesopotamia, or the many other
battle fronts of the allies, not forgetting the sailors afloat, who made
victory possible by the conquest of
the seas.
The Moose orchestra was in
attendance, and in addition to
accompanying the community singing, rendered several well known
war time selections.
The banquet was under the
auspices of the Anyox branch, Canadian Legion, British Empire Service

Anyox and North Coast
To Have  Telephone
Communication With
Believing that the only feasible
way to give long-distance telephone service to many of the outlying parts of British Columbia is
by means of radiotelephony,
George H. Halse, chairman of the
B. C. Telephone Company, announces that plans are under way
for the formation of a separate
company to enter the radiotelephone field.
"Under its charter the British
Columbia Telephone company has
no power to go into the radiotelephone business," explained Mr.
Halse in a statement. "It has become obvious to tbe executives of
the company, however, that the
radiotelephone offers the only practical method of giving service to
many outlying points, and consequently we propose to form a separate company to carry out this
work. The name of the new
company will be the Provincial
Telephone Company, and a charter
will be sought at the next session
of the Provincial Legislature. The
necessary advertisements to comply with the legal requirements
are now being published.
"During the past summer I visited the West Coast of Vancouver
Island for the purpose of studying
the question of giving telephone
service to the many industries
scattered along that rugged shore.
Through an arrangement with the
Dominion Government it has been
possible to give telephone service—
of a sort—to some of these places
over the government telegraph
lines after telegraph hours, and we
have further plans for improving
this service, but still it will not
take care of a great number of
points which cannot be reached by
wire. The conditions that prevail
oil the Island exist also on the
mainland coast, where we find such
points as Ocean Falls, Prince Rupert, Anyox, Stewart, etc., incapable of being reached by telephone
wires from the south owing to the
obstacles which would make the
cost prohibitive. Other examples
are theQueen Charlotte Islands aud
the Peace River country.
"The executives of the B. C.
Telephone Company have been
watching carefully the development of radiotelephony, and we believe that in this branch of the
communication art lies the solution
for our problem of serving such
communities as I have mentioned.
"Our plan is to operate radiotelephone service in conjunction with
our present wired service, so that a
part of the Province may be able
to pick up his telephone reciever,
ask for a party in another part of
Province, and talk to him by a
combination wired telephone and
radiotelephone circuit, as is now
being done across the Atlantic'
"This would mean that men in
isoiated logging camps, for instance, would be able to 'ring up'
Vancouver business men in their
own offices and hold conversations
with them just as if the calling
parties were right in the city. It
is not difficult to imagine what a
boon such a service would be, Another development would be the
giving of the same service to coasting vessels plying in British Columbia waters.
These are our plans. There are
many problems to be solved before
we attain success, but we feel that
there are no people in a better
position to develop a communication service for the outlying points
than the men who are at present
supplying most of the telephone
service in British Columbia. Our
project will be carried forward
with the co-operation of both the
provincial and federal authorities."

British Capitalists Are
Increasing Investments
There are many indications of
the growth of interest among British financial houses and investors,
in Canadian securities. Visits of
financial men from Great Britian
to Canada are becoming more frequent. On these visits a searching
analysis is made not only of the
financial aspects of the corporations but of the physical qualities
of tlieir plants and operations and
markets. More and more, also,
Canadian financial and industrial
leaders are building up reputations
for themselves amongst the shrewdest of British financial men and
investment groups. All of this
tends to a wider distribution of
Canadian securities overseas, with
many attendant advantages to the
Canadian corporations and their
shareholders in this country.
