Alice Arm Card Party
and Dance
The card party and dance given
by the Alice Arm Athletic Club last
Saturday evening was very enjoyable. Cards were played during
the early part of the evening. A
very appetising supper was served
and a short period of dancing
Cards occupied six tables. Mrs.
G. Anderson was the winner of the
ladies' first prize, and Mr. John
Stark successfully carried off the
men's prize for the top score. Consolation prizes for low score were
awarded Mrs. E. Moss and Mr. H,

St. Patrick's Dance Was
Brilliant Affair
St. Patrick's Day in the evening
was given over to gaiety in the
gymnasium at the annual dance
arranged by the Catholic Society.
Gorgeous emerald decorations
predominated, and for once, black
and tan was in harmony, the Merrymaker's Orchestra being thus attired. At intervals a trio composed
of Mrs. McMillan, Miss Wilma
Powell, and Mr. Ross Oatman
played airs that recalled the days of
Kerry dancing and gave green-clad
colleens and nimble-footed
gossoons a chance to display the
sort of heel-and-toe technique that
captivated onlookers at the old
Killarney Fair.
The dance was patronized by a
good crowd, many remaining until
almost 3 a.m.

New Community League
Council Transact
The Councillors of the Community

and crafts; Mr. Clark, Library and
Forum. The League's members of
the Finance Committee are accordingly, Messrs. Manning, Dresser,
and Clark.
Routine business engaged the
new Council. It was decided to
levy a small fee for the men's physical training class but to make no
charge for the ladies. A communication from the Lord's Day
Alliance regarding Sunday tournaments aroused some discussion.
The gymnasium was rented to the
Rovers and Scouts for an Easter
Monday Dance. Arrangements
were made also to make some
return for the use of chairs from
local church halls. The matter of
whether the league should furnish
a cup for badminton competition
was left over to the next meeting.
Approval was given of a plan to
improve the pool tables in the Mine
pool room.

Evidence Favors Solloway Mills Co.

the Solloway Mills trial yesterday
was the admission of Kenneth
Morrison, chartered accountant,
who was being examined by defense counsel. Morrison admitted
that the terms "'Jitney Broker"
and 'Wash Sales'" did not necessarily suggest disreputable broker
age operations. He also admitted

with moderate profits. The examination of Morrison finished the
hearing of the charge of oomRpir
acy against Solloway Mills & Co.

White Coal Miners Replace
•The quality of basketball displayed on Wednesday night
disappointed those who expected
to see an improvement toward the
end of the season. Much practice
by individuals in handling the ball
and by the teams in developing
concerted movements, will be needed if Anyox is ever to attempt
inter-city competition, and arrangements will have to be made
to guarantee the older players the
use of the gym floor.
In the girls' game, the students
twice scored in the first minute,
aud then the struggle began in
earnest. The best the Beach
could do was to draw level at 4
all, and to threaten at 9-8.
Many chances were missed by
both sides. The fourth quarter
was easy for the school girls, who
ran up the score to 18-8. 4

The Celts finished on top in the
young men's league. With the
Ex-High definitely out, the Oddfellows were scarcely in the picture. Their best efforts were made
in the first few minutes when they
opened the scoring. As time went
on they became less and less dangerous. They shot badly and
combined worse.
On the Celts' side Hill turned in
a good performance, gleaning 9
points on fewer chances than the
forwards. Calderoni playing in
the second half only, shared honors
with Armstrong. The Dodsworth
brothers were useful. The younger team was clearly superior in
On the Lodge side, players who
used to get many a cheer, failed to
show to advantage. Only seven
penalties were handed out, so there
were no arguments.

The continued low price of silver
is causing grave concern among
Canadian and American producers.
At the present time no hope is
held out for any immediate rise in
price. India has a large surplus of
silver on hand, and in order to
market it locally has placed an
import tax of 9c. per ounce on
silver. For a considerable time
China has not been in the market
for silver. It is for the silver producers to find other markets for
their product. A start has been
made in this direction, which may
go a long way toward solving the
present problem. At last week's
meeting of the Northwest Mining
Association held at Spokane it was
recommended that steps be taken
to form a silver manufacturing
company. This company would
be controlled by the silver producers. They would manufacture
silver plate, household goods, and
ornaments of all kinds, and retail
them to the public at a much lower cost than prevailing prices. It
was stated at the meeting that prevailing prices for manufactured
silver articles are from eight to ten
times more than the price of silver
bullion. As long as producers
could sell silver from 55c. to 65c.
per ounce it was thought that the
scheme would be practical.
If such an undertaking was
perfected it would undoubtedly
stimulate silver sales and thereby
raise the price to former levels.' If
success attains the efforts qf the
silver producers of the United
States, there is no reason why
Canadian producers can not do
the same thing. Canada could
supply the whole empire with
manufactured silver articles. The
scheme is worthy of consideration.
It is up to the silver producer to
find new markets. Placing manufactured articles on the market at a
price within the reach of everyone
is one method of relief.
Keen Demand For
Crude Rubber
The provincial government is
considering the mutter of bringing
about a reduction in the price of
liquors, Hon. It. H. Pooley.
attorney-general, said in the legislature last week.
The great experiment of the
Canadian Wheat Pool seems
doomed to failure. No one outside the Wheat Pool will be very
sorry for them if their present
efforts for higher prices come
to nought. They had an
opportunity last fall to sell their
wheat at prices 50 per cent higher
than those now prevailing. They
decided to hold out for higher
prices. They could not properly
read the market, for since that time
prices have considerably depreciated, and there is no hope of prices
returning to those of last fall, before
the new crop comes in. The old
law of supply and demand has
many victories to its credit and
few defeats. Experience is often
a painful teacher. It is doubtful if
the experiment practiced this year]
by the Wheat Pool is repeated.11 Commercial
It has disrupted the business of the
country. The money that should
be in the hands of Canadian farmers is now held by those of Argentine and Australia. If Canadian
farmers fail to plant their usual
acreage of wheat this year, they
are handing over the grain business
to other countries. Their hand is
forced. They must grow more
wheat, even if last year's crop is
Ottawa, March 15th—A general
increase in world crude rubber
consumption 1930 and a decrease
in world production is indicated in
a census of estimates by European
and American authorities, according to an analysis of data by the
division of the Department of
The estimates for world con
sumption average 840,570 tons as
compared with the 1929 consumption of 790,000 tons. This expect
ed increase anticipates a larger
demand for crude in view of the
constantly expanding new uses of
rubber, as well as the projected
increased demands by the makers
of tires, rubber footwear and
mechanical rubber goods-

from now to be in a position to

summer to determine definitely the
actual conditions and also to check
up on tlie desirability of tho different passes.

Immediate Attention
SOME othi;r people
'T'he turn of the Chinese policeman's lip seems to indicate that he
■*• could snarl out a very nasty "Where'd you think you're going?" if
he thought you would understand him, but passengers on the Canadian
Pacific World Cruise last year found him very courteous.
Some time before the globe-trotters met the man with the pudding-
basin head-gear they were greeted at the entrance of the famous Stadium
at Athens by the fiery-mustachiv'd guard who looks like Harry Lauder
in a ci mbination of the worst features of the Highland, the Dutch and
the hosiery advertisement national costumes.
But the Japanese practising on the saxophone's ancestor takes
the cake when it cornea to strange head-gear. A pun could be made here
about "wicker" and "wicked-looking," but let that pass. The dark
representative of the fair sex evidently believes in simplicity of costume—and economy! She has made her "robe de style" serve for her
young son, too, and her head dress! Permanent waves have probably
been amongst the old family secrets handed down from mother to
daughter for centuries in her country.
Taking them altogether they are a fair sample of strange sights to
be viewed on a trip round the world.

In your editorial of last week's
issue with reference to Anyox General Hospital as an asset to this
district, and the excellent service
rendered by the Hospital staff, is
a comment everyone will endorse
who is familiar with that organization.
Only those who through accident
and sickness are suffering, can fully
appreciate the highly skilled and
efficient treatment, and the courtesy and consideration every
patient receive.
I have just returned home after
a serious but very successful operation, and I consider myself fortunate to be taken care of by the
Anyox Hospital.
