Big Indoor Sport Meet
Was Highly
A large crowd of adults and
children attended the Indoor Meet
• sponsored by the Community League. It was undoubtedly a success
from start to finish, and much
praise is due to the officials, who
worked strenuously and enthusiastically to achieve this. It is hoped
that this initial meet will lead to
others equally successful.
A considerable time was spent on
the children's events and some keen
contests were seen, and of course
many amusing incidents, especially
in the pillow fights. Jimmy Dunn
had no difficulty in defeating H.
Dodsworth in the final of the youngsters' event. .McDonald disposed of
Dresser after the latter had made
three recoveries from the upside
down position. Arthur Dodsworth
had to fight hard to  win his final
Throwing the basketball attracted
much attention and, to the surprise
ci all, t!;u largest nutribgr of consecutive baskets were scored by
"dark horses," the only Senior "A"
star to shine being Clarence
Dresser. I
The rope climbing was certainly
a popular item with the children and
it was not the biggest ones who
could climb best. Young Robert
Dresser winning easily. Master
Wenerstrom, the smallest entrant,
amused the crowd with a very fast
climb to the ceiling.
Following the presentation of
last season's Football, Baseball and
Basketball trophies there were two
displays by the girls' and boys' gym
classes, both being neatly carried
out and much credit is due to Instructor Gillies for their succees.
The exhibition wrestling bout
between Charlie Karen and L. Pel-
konen was one of the chief items
of the evening's program and Karen
proved somewhat difficult for his
big opponent to handle. Nearing
the end Karen strained a muscle
severely and had to retire from the
The men's relay race resulted in
a narrow win for the Smelter team
over the Orphans. Speedy Stan
Ellison "headed" past first in the
final lap.

Busy Regular Meeting
Of Parent-Teacher
The December meeting of the
Anyox P. T. A was held in the
United Church Hall on Monday
the 15th. After the usual business
meeting, Mrs. .McMaster gave an
outline of the project system, that
is being advanced in many schools
today, showing how the subjects
taken in the early grades can be
co-related by such a system.
The programs of this year are
tainng up the educational system of
emphasizing the duties of the various departments.
In accordance with this Mr. Don
McLeod addressed the meeting on
"The Board of School Trustees."
The talk touched briefly on the
duties of the Minister of Education,
Inspector, etc., leading up to the
After pointing out why the
school trustees are appointed instead of elected, Mr. McLeod gave
the duties and jurisdiction of the
school trustees and also gave a
resume of the various phases, outside of day school, that they spon-
ser, such as night school, with its
eight branches, transportation of
Mine children, etc.
Another thing, not generally
understood, that was taken up, was
that the trustees have no power to
interfere with the course of study
outlined, nor the choice of text
ln conclusion a few minutes of
discussion was indulged in regard
to the talk.
The meeting closed with "God
Save the King," after which refreshments were served with Mrs.
McMaster, Convener.
The Anyox Amateur Orchestra
gave selections from their repertoire at the General Hospital
Wednesday. The musio being much
appreciated by the patients.
Develop   Biggest
Ore Bodies
Definite word is expected in the
near future as to the plans being
made for the resumption of operations at the Esperanza mine.
It is learned that the Seattle
interests who have' made arrangements to acquire a. large block of
stock, do not obtain control of the
company. The control is still held
by British Columbia shareholders.
It is planned to develop the larger
ore veins on the various properties
when operations commence. On
the Alice property there is a
vein 6 feet wide, carrying good silver values, also, on the Esperanza
is a vein 4 feet wide, carrying silver and gold values, and another
vein 12 feet wide, in which gold
values predominate. There are
also a number of smaller high
grade silver veins.
Mr. Harry Bowyer has opened an
office of the Esperanza Mines Ltd.
in Seattle, and is now engaged in
arranging finances for development
purposes. Assisting him is Mr.
Angus MacDonald, who has been
associated with the company for
several years.
The Esperanza Co. now control a
total of 19 claims.
United Church Mine Christmas Tree
The Mine United Church Sunday
school held a successful Christmas
tree and entertainment in the Mine
Hall on Saturday. A bountiful
supper was served at 5. 30 and at
7 a programme of choruses, solos,
playetes, recitations were given by
the children. Miss Maise Evans
played a violin solo, she was accompanied at the piano by Miss
Dora Peterson.
Freddie Calderoni gave the address of welcome and acted as
chairman. The whole programme
was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience and a hearty vote of thanks
was tendered to Mrs. H. E. Doelle
who had trained the children and
made this splendid programme
Many Sport  Trophies
Presented at Indoor
One of the chief items of the
Indoor Meet program was the
presentation of the various cups
and prizes won by the Baseball,
Football and Basketball players of
last season.
The chairman of the A.C.L. Mr.
Manning presented the Concentra
tor team with the Baseball cup,
and Mr. Lindsay the players with
sweaters, on behalf of the league.
The football cup was received by
Mr. W. Watkins, manager of the
successful Celts' team, from Mr.

team being the recipients of sweaters. The captain of the Celts team
Jimmy Elliott, on behalf of the
players, presented Mr. Watkins and
Mr. Powell with sweaters in recognition of their services to the
team during the past season.

Children Enjoy  Community
League Free Picture
The Recreation Hall was packed
with children on Tuesday afternoon
when Buster Keaton's hilarious
comedy "Forward March" was
shown. To enable the Mine children to attend this show given by
the A.C.L., a special jitney service
was given them. The kiddies were
presented with candies and it must
have been a very happy aftTiioou
for all who attended this function.
Billiard Handicap Won By
A. Wright
The Beach Pool Room Christmas
Billiard Handicap tournament was
won by A. Wright who had no
difficulty in accounting for Jack Ion
in the final game played on December 22nd. Walter Jones was third.
An entertainment by the children; a visit from kind old Santa
Claus; refreshments; followed by
a dance, made an evening brimful
of pleasure for the large audience
that attended the Alice Arm children's Christmas Tree and entertain •
ment held at T. W. Falconer's hall
on Tuesday evening.
Wee Ronald Evindsen opened
the evening's entertainment with
a recitation. The programme that
followed consisted of Christinas
choruses sung by the children; a
humorous sketch; pianoforte solos,
vocal solos, Hag drill, etc.
At the conclusion of the entertainment, benevolent old Santa
Claus burst into the hall, and to
the delight of the children, dealt
out his presents with a liberal
hand, and many exclamations of
joy resounded as the wrappings
exposed the bountiful gifts.
Following his exit, refreshments
were served to both the juvetiles
and adults, and soon the hot coffee
ham sandwiches, cakes, etc. were
reduced to only a pleasant memory.
The hall was quickly cleared and
the enticing strains of the Alice
Arm orchestra, quickly filled the
floor with dancers, who stepped
the lively fox trots and sedate
\valtZ8 until all were tired.
The splendid performance of the
children in their various parts of
the entertainment was a feature of
the evening, and was the cause of
much favorable comment. Considering the short time available
for practice, the entertainment was
exceptionally good, and great
credit is due the Rev. and Mrs. W.

children; also Mrs. J, Wheatley and

Before the next issue of tlie
Herald is printed we shall have
left this old year behind and started upon a new. What the future
twelve months hold for us no one
can foretell, but we hope that fortune will smile on us more pleasantly than during the present year.
Throughout the whole period of
1930 a world-wide trade depression has been experienced. Every
country and every industry has felt
its ill effects, and the smallest hamlet of this Dominion as well as the
big cities have suffered more or
less. This district has not escaped.
For the first time in the history of
Anyox, short time has been instituted in order to assist in curtailing
the production of copper. Alice
Arm has also suffered in the suspension of the development of
mining properties, but conditions
might have been a great deal
worse. We are indeed fortunate,
that the Granby Consolidated
Mining Smelting and Power Co.
decided to carry on and operate
their big plant, despite the ruinous
price of copper and the difficulty
of finding a market, even at the
low prices prevailing. This decision has kept over 1000 men
from helping to further congest
the over-crowded ranks of unemployed, and it has given the necessities of life and not a few luxuries
to the 2200 people that comprise
the town of Anyox. Yes, conditions could have been a lot worse
during the past year, and, in comparing our lot with many industrial
parts of the world we have much
to be thankful for. Alice Arm,
in common with every other silver
mining camp throughout the whole
world, has felt the ill effects of the
low price of the white metal.
Development work on several
promising properties has been discontinued until better prices prevail. When this happy state of
affairs will come to pass no one
seems bold enough at present to
prophesy. Leading economists of
the world  are emphatic in their
Reverted Lands Will Be
Sold On Easy Terms
By Government
Rapid settlement of 45,000 acres
in the vicinity of Vanderhoof and
22,000 acres south of Prince George
is the aim of a committee of Cabinet Ministers and Government officials who are dealing with the disposal of lands reverted to the
Government for non-payment of
taxes. These comprise 2,225,000
in 200,000 parcels scattered
throughout the Province. The
northern areas already indicated are
to be opened first as being considered of the best quality, with
good transportation facilities and
most easily available for settlement
It is understood that the land wil
be sold at low prices with small
payments, and the balance spread
in easy terms over a long period
The idea of the committee is to get
the idle lands producing, so that
they will become an asset to the
revenues of the province instead of
a dead weight as at present.
The Reverted Land Committee
will devote its attention this winter
to the appraisal of some thousands
of reverted lots and small holdings
in the Vancouver land district.
These can be made eminently suitable for summer homes and fruit,
vegetable and poultry farming.
They are situated favorably for
transportation at places like Bowen
Island. Gibson's Landing, Sechelt
and similar places. With the extension of the highway system along
to Powell River and ferry connection
Continued on opposite column
statements that the price of silver
must be brought up to a higher
standard and stabilized, or untold
disaster will prevail. Already
plans have been made by international economists to solve the
silver question and this may probably be accomplished sooner than
many of us realize. If it is, Alice
Arm, with its large deposits of sil
ver ore will be a busy camp, and
the low price period will be quickly
forgotten. Let us, at least hope
that 1931 will see higher prices
prevail for all metals and in anticipation thereof we wish that our
readers will experience the happiest and most prosperous year of
their lives during 1931.
We wish you a Happy
and Prosperous
New Year  s

across Howe Sound further lots
would be available and all would be
within two or three hours journcv
from the Vancouver markets. There
ire also some excellent holdings in
the Lower Fraser Valley, and these
will all be placed on the market as
early as possible. These decisions
are the result of a report made by
George Cripps of the Finance De-
partment who has been investigating the lands in co-operation with
Dr. W. H. Gaddes of the Land
Settlement Board.

Flin Flon Mine Is Shipping
Blister Copper
Winnipeg—Nineteen cars of
blister copper and zinc have been
shipped from Flin Flon mines since
November 19, when operations
were started in the new smelter.
Of these, 13 were billed to the two
Canadian seaports, four to New
York and two to Toronto. Weekly
shipments will continue steadily
from the northern Manitoba mine
field this winter.
The estimated gross profits for
1930 of the Consolidated Mining
& Smelting Co. are $7,000,000.00.
Of this, about $1,000,000.00 will
have been spent on exploration and
development of non-productive
properties and on large scale demonstrations of fertilizer products.
Start Early
IN any plan of life assurance the extra risk is what
increases the premium that
is required.

your assurance will cost.

someone make that remark
when referring to business
conditions in British Columbia? According to the report issued recently by the
Department of Labor of the
British Columbia Government, the wage earners of
British Columbia earned
$192,092,249.51 in 1929. It
isn't "More Payrolls" we
need in B. C. as much as
"More Support" for the

Christmas Celebrated
With Enthusiasm
Christmas is over once again.
Christmas greetings and presents
have been exchanged. Everyone is
recuperating from the big festival
and all will shortly be back to normal.
Tlie great festival of Christendom
was fittingly celebrated by everyone
in the district. No one went hungry and the day was spent in cementing old friendships and the
ancient custom of eating and drinking the best procurable.
Numerous private dinner parties
were held followed by a joyous time
and it is safe to say that nowhere
in this vast Dominion was Christmas Day celebrated more heartily
than in the towns of Anyox andi
Alice Arm.

Happy Affair
The Moose Christmas Tree and
party held in the Elks' Hall, Fri
