Address Given By Mr.
T. L. Davis On High
School Education
The monthly meeting: of the
Anyox Parent Teacher Association
was held in the Public School on
March 20th.
The speaker for the evening was
Mr. T. L. Davis, principal of Granby Hay High School. Mr. Davis
gave a very interesting and enlightening address entitled: "Some
Aspects of High School Work."
He dealt with the most important
subjects of the course, mathematics,
science, language, history, geography and showed the use and advantage of the child studying such
He stated that there is much argument regarding what a High
School course should consist of,
the course chosen had been compiled partly by public opinion and
partly by what is required in a
child's life.
In the English language, the
child already has a foundation, and
then step by step he is led to master it and to acquire a skill in the
use of the same, and to cultivate a
taste for the finer forms of verse
and prose.
Grouped with this said Mr.
Davis are history and geography.
Their use is utilitarian of' course.
The pupils are here given an introduction to world history, for current events must be shown against
a background of the past.
Mathematics are conceded to be
a necessary equipment for life. A
mental alertness and confidence are
acquired by solving problems. It
throws the pupil on his own resources, but he must have guidance
or suggestion to show him the
proper line of approach.
In science, the speaker said, the
pupil is taught to classify and clarify their ideas. They prove things
by experiment. It opens a new
world to them. They find light,
heat, sound, etc. all governed by
different laws. Here they acquire
a skill and knowledge which no
machine can duplicate, and it is a
training for their intelligence.
The value of chemistry and
physics is well recognized in these
It must be remembered that the
student is not being trained for an
occupation in High School. It is

be an active one. It is expected
that weather conditions will permit
of a much earlier start of the playing season this year.

Presentation Made To
Mrs. J. MacMillan
An interesting event took place
at the United Church Hall on Friday evening the 24th. when the
various bodies attached to the
Church combined in making a presentation to Mrs. James MacMillan.
Mr. Cavers, president of the
choir, spoke on behalf of that body;
the Rev. E. Baker spoke on behalf
of the Sunday School, and Mrs.
Bristow for the Ladies' Aid. All
three speakers eulogized the splendid work which Mrs. MacMillan
had done during her connection
with the Church,) and voiced the
regret of all at her, departure from
the district.
Mrs. Jack Evans made the presentation, which took the form of a
handsome leather music case. Mrs.
MacMillan replied in her usual
modest and charming manner, and
expressed her regret at leaving her
many friends of the Church. Supper
and a social time brought the even
ing to a close.

The toot of automobiles on the
downtown streets during the week,
definitely announced that spring
has arrived. The first cars appear
ed on the streets on Monday morn
ing when they met the Union steamship Cardena. There is still a little
snow on the streets, but the bare

disposed of during the winter.
The final of a series of card parties
given during the winter by the Alice
Arm Athletic Association was held
in the Club House on Saturday
evening. Mrs. G. Anderson held
the high score for the ladies, and
Mr. G. Fiva topped the list for the
men. Refreshments concluded a
very pleasant evening.
The card parties, which have been
held every two weeks throughout
the winter have been greatly appreciated. Many thanks are due to
those who labored so industriously
to make them a success.
The British Columbia canned
salmon pack of 1932 totalled 1,081,-

"Lovers Courageous"
A drama of two quite young
people, portrayed by Robert Montgomery and Madge Evans, who
fight their way to happiness, despite poverty, misunderstanding, and
opposition on the part of the girl's
parents, is this fine M. G, M. picture. The various vicissitudes
which befall them are full of human
interest and a capable cast does
much splendid acting. Frederick
Lonsdale has introduced a large
amount of smart dialogue. Also
in the cast are Roland Young, Frederick Kerr, Reginald Owen, Beryl
Mercer, Evelyn Hall and many
others. A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer
picture well worth seeing on Saturday.
"The Sign Of Four"
Action, drama and mystery hold
the audience enthralled in this
Sherlock Holmes picture, adapted
from the story by Sir Arthur Conan
Doyle. Arthur Wontner is in the
role of Sherlock Holmes, and the
capable cast includes Ian Hunter,
Isla Bevan, Ben Soutten, Edgar
Norfolk and Clair Greet. The story
involves the finding of a hidden
treasure, the fight over its possession and subsequent thrilling happenings. It is a most capably acted
and produced detective thriller
which you are sure to enjoy. By
all means see it Tuesdav.

Concentrator  Win   In
Fast Game Against
Continuing the series of games
for theBasketball Cup, the Concentrator downed the Mechanics on
Monday last by 24 to 18. It was a
fast session throughout, with the
score almost even at half time. The
speed and nice combined play of the
millmen finally told against the
machinists, though the latter were
unfortunate in being unable to locate
the hoop on several occasions.
The teams: Mechanics: Buntain
6, Dresser 8, L. Gillies 4, W. Watson, F. Sanderson, F. Dodsworth.
Concentrator: Steele 11, Heinkey 2
Falconer 5, Mcleod, Dodd 4, McDonald 2.
An interesting clash the same
evening between the High School
and the Vandals, the latter receiving
a trouncing at the hands of the
Students. The result came somewhat of a surprise, as the Mine boys
have been carrying all before them
in recent games.
The High School played brilliantly
every member playing a fast and
heady game. D. Gillies went into
double figures, while Mclnnes and
Wendell put up a fine exhibition.

30-22. The teams: Vandals, A.

Public and High School Clash
At Basketball
On Saturday an all-star basketball team from the Public School
essayed the task of trimming their
bigger brothers from the High
School and although they made a
good showing they were quite unable to find any weak spots in the
team which plays senior league stuff
and now has to be reckoned with
very seriously. They were, however, fully extended to prevent the
agile Public School boys from running up a score.
Such fixtures are beneficial to
both sides and another one is being
planned for the near future. S.
Steele was the capable referee.
The final score was 34 to 6 in favor
of the High School.

The attention of mining companies, promoters, prospectors and
others will be centred on the Cariboo Country this year. What the
future holds is at present hard to
tell, but one thing is certain, a lot
of money will be spent there this
year in carrying out development
work, both in the Bridge River and
Barkerville districts, and results attained this year and next, will decide if these districts will become
big lode gold mining camps or not.
Due to the low prices prevailing
for all base metals and silver, gojd
mining has become popular. Properties all over Canada are being
developed with feverish activity,
both by responsible mining companies and newly formed small
companies. The base metal and
silver camps are being deserted by
those who follow the new strikes,
in the expectation of making some
quick money through staking and
selling or in finding employment.
Already quite a number of men
have left this district for other fields.
But many will return when prices
for silver and other metals rise and
money is again obtainable for the
development and mining of those
Noah Timmins Mining
On Porcher Island
Lumber has been shipped from
Prince Rupert for building of a mill
tit the Surf Point mine near Welcome Harbor on Porcher Island
and H. V. Legge, engineer in charge
is arranging for purchase and ship-
ment of the necessary machinery,
j The property was taken over under
bond by the Noah Timmins Corporation in 1927 and development
has been carried on since. Dr. J.
T. Mandy, resident government
engineer of the district, pointed
out in his review of 1932 operations
that last spring, additional gold-
hearing pyrite veins had been discovered and that the property had
reached the stage at which small-
scale development was warranted.
The Surf Point mine is 25 miles
from Prince Rupert near Welcome
Harbor. A tramline has been built
connecting mine and beach, a distance of one  and a quarter miles.
According to reports from Prince
Rupert the operators plan installation of a mill capable of producing
about $75,000 of gold per annum,
The mill feed will be roughly hand
sorted and the head maintained
about Sl5. making the concentrate
about Si50 to the ton.
Mining on Porcher Island will
be greatly stimulated by tho installation of this mill, the mine being
the first on the island to ship ore.
Others are likely to follow judging
by present prospects.
In order to keep our drooping
spirits revived, the daily press occasionally publishes a speech made
by some prominent public man to
the effect that the worst of the depression has passed and that the
outlook for general prosperity is
much brighter. These speeches
are generally of the after-dinner
variety, when a man has a 7-course
dinner tucked under his vest, fortified by frequent imbibitions of
sparkling champagne. Now, who
would'nt see the rosy side of things
at such a time? Speaking for ourselves and also on behalf of the
residents of this district no one has
yet noticed any swing of the prosperity pendelum so far. But we
hope it has occurred.
Our grandfathers used to tell us
of the time when sugar was 25
cents a pound. We will be able
to tell the same story judging from
the interest taken in this commodity by the tax gatherers.
If the income tax is boosted
much higher, the only people with
a taxable income will be government officials; who will then be
forced to tax themselves to pay
"Prosperity is just around the
corner." So is the tax collector,
and the odds are in favor of the
latter getting to you first.
Large   Amount  of  Oil
Produced In Alberta
The production of petroleum in
Alberta during 1932 amounted to
917,622 barrels with a value of $2,-
654,533. according to information
received by the natural resources
department of the Canadian National Railways. This figure is
below that of 1931 but the reduction is due in part to conservation
measures that were brought into
effect during the year by the Alberta Gas Conservation Hoard.
The consumption of natural gas in
Alberta during 1932 was 16,508,-
583 cubic feet, which, on the basis
of four cents per thousand feet at
the well-head, had a value of

CANADIANS are fortunate in
their National Parks, in that
they have within their borders Alpine scenery which is not
equalled anywhere on the continent, and more and more they are
realizing that holidays in Canada
hold for the lover of out-of-doors
all the thrills that could be found
anywhere in the world. Jasper
National Park in the Canadian
Rockies, contains many high peaks,
eternally snowcapped, and on the
sides of the mountains are glaciers
which have stood the test of ages.
Millions of tons of ice, stretching in
some instances, almost as far as the
eye can see, lure the adventurous
climber to new attempts, while in
the calm, peaceful valleys wild
game of all kinds live at peace with
mankind and the world.
Additional bungalows for the accommodation of guests a?6 *e> be
erected at Jasper Park Lodge, the
log-cabin hostelry of the Canadian
National Railways at Jasper National Park, in lime for the opening of the . season, it is announced by officials of the Hotel
Department, Canadian National
Railways. During last season the
popularity of Jasper National Park
was so great that the capacity of
Jasper Park Lodge was taxed, and
the   additional -> bungalows   being I
provided this year will take care of
almost fifty per cent, more guests.
Four 4-room bungalows, each
room with bath, and two 12-room
bungalows, each room also having
private bath, are being ejected. In
addition, a double-deck boathouse,
with the upper fioor for conventions, and dancing, fs being constructed, and an octagonal curio
building is being built near the
main Lodge. Four new buildings
are being erected to serve as employees' quarters, the kitchens are
being extended and the main
lounge is being extended to provide
for a ladies' reception room and for
a men's billiard and card room. -
\Y/hy pick on me?" says the little fellow, "there
are many other things which can interest you
and hold your attention." And so there are, but
after all the native life of the "Isles of the Blest" is
wurth a little study, is it not? Take this little Jamaican for; instance. If you took away his shirt
and his broom handle you would not leave him much
other than a full tummy, yet he is a British subject,
and as such, has an opportunity of becoming—well—
of doing pretty well for himself and of gathering
enough of this world's substance to give him comfort
at least in his later years. He will grow up in a
ramshackle old hut on the edge of the town maybe,
•nd learn to be jealous of his rights as a citizen; and
when he comes to the age of understanding he will
be more English than the English. As a matter of
fact he will, in all probability, speak at least two
"English" languages. In one of these he might implore you to buy his fruits or lace bark souvenirs or

as foreign as any you will meet with in your tour of

will catch an "I" and an "an" or a "Yes"; then gradually your ear will be able to distinguish all the words

They are interesting, these people. Watch them
as they swarm around your cruising vessel docked

deep into the water for your coppers. They are a
different people in every sense of the word.
Participants in the cruises to the West Indies by
the Canadian Pacific S.S. Montroyal in January and
February next will be afforded every opportunity to
study the various peoples with whom they come in
contact and will return with at least a few impressions and a better understanding of them. No matter how different they may be, they are never foreign. This is especially true of the British protectorates. If one would really get to the heart of these
people he dare not patronize them. If he does this
he only finds the ty»». that he expects te find.
