Trojans Defeat Elks In
Senior "A" Fixture
The Elks made a valiant attempt
to raise their position on the soore
board of the A League, when they
met the Trojans on Monday lasti
and raised tlieir supporters' hopes
in the last fifteen minutes of play.
They, however, found themselves
nine points behind when the final
whistle blew. A decided weakness
in the most important end of the
machine—the scoring end—was
frequently apparent.
Davis shone brightly throughout
the scrap. He played a brilliant
game and also made the highest
scijre for his side. Currie was also
atltop form and played untiringly,
Epry member of the team played
a sterling game. Close checking
* kipt down the scoring of the Tro-
jins, all of whom added a nice
uiota to the total. B. Gillies and
Pi Gordon were at top form,
fvhile Shields and MacDonald
blayed a cool  and masterly game,
The scores: Elks: Steele 4.
'Davis 11, Currie 7, Phillips 2,
Evans, Hamilton, Soott, Patrick.
Trojans: B. Gillies 12, J. Gillies 6.

j Foundry Hands Vandals
Bad Beating
Evidently lacking the condition
and necessary speed to keep up
with the fast stepping light weight
Foundry team, Vandals B received
a decisive trimming in their first
game of the second half of the B
League sohedule on Friday 11th.
Vandals started strongly, but the
Foundry lads showed a passing
and shooting ability that put them
18 points ahead at half-time. The
entire team was on its toes throughout the tussle, their sharpshooters,
Soott and Patrick being ever ready
for the frequent chances offered
them. Their ohecking was good,
Yelland at guard being outstanding
for his defensive work.
Vandals played excellently as
individuals but their usual combined play was lacking and this was
their undoing. It was a good -game
to watch and was well handled by
referee Gillies.
Vandals: White 12, Southey 1,

Bobby Burns' Anniversary To
Be Celebrated
On January 25th. patriotic
Scotchmen all over the world, will
celebrate the birthday of the immortal Robert Bums, the national
bard of Scotland. Anyox will be
no exception,'as on that day, the
fourth annual Burns' Dinner and
Dance will be held in the Gymnasium. This event was first promoted in 1932 and has grown in
importance with each passing year.
Even the cloud which at present
hangs over this district, cannot
dampen the ardor with which this
historic event is oelebrated, and
there is every reason to believe that
the affair will be just as successful
a* those of former years.
Robert Burns was born on Jan-
nary 25th. 1759 and died on July
21st. 1796, in his 38tb. year.

A special meeting of the Alice
Arm branch of the B, C. Chamber
of Mines, was held on Monday
evening at the Club House. The
meeting was held in honor of Mr.
W. J. Asselstine, |,M. L. A. and a
large number of people were present. Owing to the sickness of the
President and Vice-President, the
chair was taken by E. Moss. The
secretary of the organization, A.
D. Yorke, aoted in his official
Following a few remarks by the
chairman, he called upon the guest
of the evening.  Mr. Asselstine, to|
address the meeting.
On rising, Mr. Asselstine stated
that he had not come prepared to
make a speech, but just to meet
everyone and discuss their problems with them. He would, however, enjoy making a few remarks
on general conditions, and would
later be pleased to answer any
questions in regard to local affairs
from those present. The speaker
stated that he advocated a strong
branch of the Chamber of Mines
at Alice Arm. In it, he said, you
have a representative body of the
people. Letters received from suoh
an organization carries far more
weight than from individuals
when presenting their problems at
Victoria. He urged everyone to
[support the local Chamber of
'Mines and advised publishing a
pamphlet with up-to-date mining
news of the distriot for distribution
among those interested in mining
development He hoped to be able
to obtain a'money grant for this
purpose if.it was decided to proceed
with it.
We have, said Mr. Asselstine, a
huge tract of unexplored mineral
land in Northern British Columbia
but we are not developing it. It is
a hard country to build roads and
trails in. He advocated that moreil
geological parties be placed in the
Hold and a general survey made of:
the whole north. When that was1
completed build roads and trails;
into the most promising sections
and develop them as is being done
in Northern Ontario, he said; He
also advocated employing some
means whereby the i best pf the
students of the mining classes in
theoities could be sent on pros-
■ ■ i
pecting trips..
Mr. Asselstine stated that $6,-
000.00 was,appropriated last summer for repair work on the Dolly
Varden Railway.   Work, however',

was stopped by the government
when it was found that the road
was owned by private interests.
He therefore investigated the whole
status of the railway and hoped to
be able to put through a bill in the
Legislature rescinding the charter,
and in this matter he does not
expect any difficulty will be encountered. When the road bceomes
the property of the government repair work will be commenced.
Following the speaker's remarks
the following questions were asked
"Why is the Minister of Mines
Report not published before the
mouth of June?" "Why mining
trails in the district were not
brushed out last year?"' Why Dr.
Hanson's geological report is not
yet published?" "Who stopped the
work on the Dolly Varden Railway
last fall?" The speaker's opinion on
the future price of silver.?" It.was
also brought to the notice of Mr.
Asselstine that the government
had threatened to take away the
homes of several prospectors in the
town, if they did not make payments due on land and pay taxes,
neither of which they were able to
do at present.
Mr. Asselstine's explanation of
the questions was appreciated. He
thanked his audience for bringing
them to his notice and assured
everyone that he would deal with
them when he arrived at Viotoria.
In conclusion the speaker said
that he was in favor of a trunk
road through the interior from
north to south, with branch roads
to coast points, and intended to
ask for . $6,000,000 to carry it
He emphasized the importance
of more geological surveys and
said that it is a disgrace that new
maps should be issued by the government showing vast spaces ofi
unexplored land in the north. He
assurred the audience that he
would do all in his power to further the interests of the Alice Arm
At the close of the meeting a
motion that a vote of thanks be
extended to Mr. Asselstine for
coming to Alice Arm to discuss
looal problems and for the information ho had tendered and his
willingness to answer all questions,
was unanimously adopted hy the

Premier Bennett's Sudden
Change of Views
On every hand we hear that these
arc     changing     times. Great
changes have indeed taken place in
the world during the past ten years,
in government, economic and social
spheres. A great number of people
have also changed their opinions
without creating any special com
ment. But when our Premier, R
B. Bennett changes his opinion
from a reactionary viewpoint to a
decidedly socialistic one, then it
causes quite a furore from one end
of the Dominion to the other. A
lot of sarcastic remarks has been
made about Premier Bennett since
he commenced his famous radio
speeches, but Mr. Bennett, we sup^
pose, has as much right to change
his opinion as anyone else, especially if he can foresee that the tide
is too strong for him to withstand
and the leaky boat he is sitting in is
about to sink. Whether Premier
Bennett carries out his great reforms or not, he has undeniably lit
a fuse that will continue to burn,
for there is not a man in public life
in Canada today that is bold enough
to cut the fuse before its work is
completed. Mr. Bennett, is a brilliant lawyer and an astute statesman. He has set a mark for his
opponents to aim at, and he has
also placed the electors of Canada
in an uncomfortable position. If
the Conservative party, pledged to
enact the many reforms promised,
is not elected to oflice, then the
political leaders of all parties will
interpret it that the people of Canada do not wish anv reforms, but
are satisfied with conditions as they
are, unless [of course the Liberal
party spike as many reform planks
in their platform as the Conserva
tives have done. Then it will be a
choice of whom can be best trusted
to carrv them out.
Wm. J. Asselstine Is
Working For District
W. J. Asselstine, M. L. A. made
it plain in his Alice Arm speech at
the Chamber of Mines meeting this
week that he intends to fulfill his
election promises in regard to
working for the interests of this
district whenever it was possible
and necessary. Through the efforts
of Mr. Asselstine a good start was
made last fall on providing trans>
portation up the Kitsault Valley
When work was stopped because
the railway was private property,
he immediately made plans ao have
legislation passed cancelling the
railway charter.     This he expects
British Columbia Mining Act
Will Be Changed
The British Columbia Metalliferous Mines Regulation Act will be
repealed at the coming session of
the Legislature and replaced by a'
new and stronger statute, G. S.
Pearson, minister of mines, announced.
The purpose of the new act will
be to make all mines in British
Columbia conform to the higher
standards of the larger companies,
while the new law will make drastic
changes from the new act, it wi
not alter conditions in most mines,
as they are already working on
self-imposed regulations, much
more stringent than those imposed
by law.
It is expected the new act will go
to the mining committee of the
House, so that the mining industry
can make representations on it.
Ontario's gold production value
for the first eleven months of 1934
shows a gain of over nineteen million dollars. Gold to the value of
$63,976,738 was taken from Ontario mines during the period from
January 1st to November 30 as
compared with $44,131,068 in the
corresponding period of 1933.
There were 5,816,960 tons of ore
milled this year compared with
5,111,078 in 1933.

The coining session of the Provincial Legislature will see one new
face on the floor of the House.
Mrs. D. C. Stevens, C. C. F. member for North Vancouver, will take
her seat, and for the first time B. C.
will have two women members in
the house at once. Mrs. Paul Smith,
Liberal member for Burrard, is the
Mrs. Stevens, incidentally, is the
third woman legislator in the history of the province.

will be done during the coming
session of the Provincial Legis-
ature. When the railway right-
of-way has reverted to the government Mr. Asselstine expects no
great difficulty in procuring sufficient money for repair work, so that
transportation facilities will again
be available to the Upper Kitsault
The Provincial Legislature meets
on February 12th. Quite a lot of
legislation awaits the members, but
the chief item on the list as far as
Alice Arm is concerned is the Act
to rescind the charter of the Dolly
Varden Railway. With the return
of the railway to the government a
new era of mining will probably
commence in the Alice Arm district.
The thermometer took a fall this
week, which was bad enough, but
in doing so it pulled down the coal
and wood piles. The wind rose,
but the coal and wood didn't.
Quite the contrary. They dropped

Governor-General Visits Boys' Farm
The annual closing exercises of the Boys' Farm
and Training School at Shawbridge, Que., were
made memorable for the 150 boys ot the institution recently when they were honored by the presence of the Karl of Bessborough, Governor-General
of Canada, who addressed the school and gave out
the prizes. Accompanied by E. W. Beatty, K.c.,
chairman and president of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, who Is also president of the Boys' School,
and a number of directors and wellwishers of tho
institution, His Excellency was the object of a
great ovation by the boys on *.he arrival of the
special train at the Farm. This is shown ln top

Ralph Villcock, D.S.O., superintendent of the
School, and at the right His Excellency is acknowledging the plaudits of the boys from the steps of

23 years' existence of tho School that a Governor-
General of Canada had taken part in the closing
exercises of the institution. His Excellency, addressing the School, stressed character as being of
vital importance to success in life.

Warriors Are Victorious
Over Rovers
Although the Rovers put up a
plucky fight in their tussle with
the Warriors on Monday last, they
were no match for their speedy
and more experienced opponents,
and were on the short end of a 25
to 6 score. Credit is due the
younger team for its doggedness
and perseverance, as without
doubt tlieir play is steadily improving. Dan MacDonald had a
birthday, notching 18 of the 25
points scored.

Kergin, Flye, Cadillac 2, Thompson, Kirby 4. Warriors: D. MacDonald 18, Phillips 5, D. O'Neill,

Spooks battled against the Mine
Girls for a total of 19 to 16, in a
fast and well played game. The
Mine Girls were unfortunate in
being without spare players, but
stayed the distance well, and at
times looked like holders of the
winning ticket.
Helen Calderoni played a fast
and aggressive game, being well
supported by her team mates,
while for the winners, K. Eve was
the star player with 11 points to
her credit. We predict that the
Mine Girls will be in the headlines
before the season ends.

Aces continued their winning
streak for the second half of the
schedule, by leaving the Mine Girls
ou the short end of a 14-10 score
on Friday the 11th. Several points
behind during most of the game,
the Mine Girls stayed pluckily and
were catching up nicely towards
the close. A little practice and
general pepping up, would bring
theiii to the front again, Aces
played their usual fast and aggress

Vandals "A" Swamp Elks In
Good Style
Oiled, polished, and running true
to form, the scoring machine of
Vandals A team ran up a nice total
of 36 points against 12, in their
league game against the Elks on
Friday the 11th. Nothing could
go wrong. The fast and accurate
passing of the Calderoni boys and
J. Kulai was a real treat to watch
So well did he play that Kulai's
name could easily be spslled "Cool-
eye." The Elks, who were minus
some of their regular players, lacked passing ability and were no
match in speed for their flashy opponents. They made many changes
but stuck to tlieir task with courage
and spirit. With a consistent team
in good practice, they will put up
as good a showing as any of the
other A teams.
The teams: Elks, Davies Meagher 2, Steele 4, Phillips 1, Scott 'I,
Hamilton. Lazorek, Patrick.
Vandals A: T. Calderoni 12, V-
Calderoni 9, Kulai 11, Woodman 2,
Watson 2, Sanderson.

Organized Sport Anyox
At Small Cost
It is generally admitted that
organized sport in Anyox, is enjoyed at very low oost, and a rocent
visitor to our town gave us proof
of this. The average entry fee to
a Badminton Club in Vancouver is
$17.50, this amount covering the
cost of the shuttles. Two evenings
and one afternoon's practice a week
is the usual thing. Compare this
with an entry fee of $4.00 to the
Anyox Badminton Club, with two
evenings and two afternoons per
week for practice. It costs on the
average $20.00 to join a tennis club
in Vanoouver; in Anyox $2.50 only
is required. Similar comparisons
may be made with other branches
of sports, so that the people of
Anyox are indeed fortunate in
being able to enjoy organized sport
at low cost.
