Skiing  Enjoyed  By   Alice
Arm Enthusiasts
During the last two week-ends a
group of young people in Alice Arm
have indulged in a sport, which
around here, and at this time of the
year is somewhat of a novelty, that
Sf skiing. To them, the snow clad
hills looked too enticing to be resisted any longer, so they began to
hunt around for skis. Three pairs
were procured locally. As six pairs
were needed, three had to be made.
So for a week they were busy during the evenings, shaping, grooving and steaming them. Eventually
they were finished. The weather
was perfect, and they simply revelled in the warm sun and in the
thrill of sliding swiftly down the
white hills of snow.
All admitted that it was no soft
job packing the skis to their destination, but the good time fully compensated the hard hike.
The snow is now too soft for
further indulgence, but next year
will see them at it stronger than
Anyox Gardeners Are
Getting Results
Muoh interest is being taken by
Anyox residents in their gardens
this year. The A.C.L. will eu-
oourage the efforts of the amateur
gardeners by offering prizes for
the, gardens previously cultivated,
for the greatest improvement in
any yard not previously oultivated,
and forthe best window or verandah box display. The prizes will
be well worth winning. Already
some of the bushes are presenting
a pleasing appearance. Bushes
have been pruned and some plants
put in. Jimmy Dunn has his gar
den in good shape and will again
have a show of nice plants and
beautiful flowers. Ed.'Ashton's
garden at the rear of the hospital
is a fine sight just now. It is laid
out in three banks, each being a
blaze of color of Hyacinths, Tulips
and Daffodils. The garden in
front of-the Pioneer Hotel has
been receiving the expect attention
of Mrs. A. H. Stewart and looks
very nice. Last year the boxes
near the hotel were a sight for
those people who say flowers can't
grow in Anyox, and no doubt this
year there will be another splendid
A Show You Cannot Afford

The training of the large cast
for the big musical comedy, "The
Beauty Shop," which is being
sponsored by the Anyox Elks'
Lodge, and is under the direction
of Mr. and Mis. C. H. Lewis of

"The Beauty Shop" will be by
far the biggest show ever staged iu
Anyox, and no pains will be spared
to make it a gigantic success.
Over forty local artists will be in
the oast, and over two hundred
costumes will he used. A large
amount of scenery will also be
used. I
This is the first time a show of
such magnitude has been staged in

rived from it by the Elks will be
devoted to the Children's Flag
Day celebration on August 4th.

Waltz "Then," featured by Mrs,
G. S. Macdonald and Miss Vera
Eve, and "Now" depicting the
"Old Woman who lived in a Shoe,
was wonderfully executed by the
dance chorus led by Miss Simpson
whose singing was excellent. Shirley McRae's solo dance "Rose to
my Love" was very pretty and the
encore was exquisite. Miss McRae
improves wonderfully with each
appearance and is a talented dan
J. Tierney's dance, "Lancashire
Hornpipe," received an enoore
that was also well received.

Attempts Suicide On Steamer
Prince George
A tragedy almost occurred last
week aboard" the steamship Prince
George, when Walter McKenzie
slashed his throat three times
with a razor just as the ves

soon as he had committed the act
McKenzie rang for a steward, who
on entering the stateroom found
the man unconscious and covered
with blood.' He was taken to
Stewart hospital, and latest reports were that hopes are held for
his recovery.
McKenzie is said to have been in
Anyox about five weeks and was
employed for a short period. He

Mr.  J.   Larson's Marriage
Surprises Friends
Mr. Jens Larson sprang a surprise on his many friends of Alice
Arm on Monday when his wife
arrived from Denmark. This
is not, however, the first visit of
Mrs. Larson to Alice Arm. She
spent some time here two years
ago, when she was Miss Anna
Hedegaard. At that lime she was
honored as one of the delegates
sent by the Danish Hospital Nurses
Association to attend the big International Nurses' Convention at
Montreal. She visited Mr. Larson
here, and on August 5th. 1929 they
were quietly married at the residence of Rev. Otto R. Karlstrom,
pastor of the Swedish Lutheran
Church, Vancouver.
Following the marriage, Mrs.
Larson returned to Denmark to
complete her hospital duties and
before leaving Europe travelled
extensively in England and France.
The secret of the marriage was not
revealed until Mrs. Larson arrived
at Alice Arm on Monday.
New Anglican Church Is
Opened For Worship
The new Anglican Church at
Alice Arm was opened for worship
on Sunday by Rev. W. B. Jennings.
Holy Communion was held at 10
a.m., Sunday School at 11 a.m.
Evening Service at 7.30 p.m.
The Church was filled by a large
congregation at the evening service. An appropriate sermon was
preached by Rev. Jennings, which
was very much enjoyed.
Following the service, a vestry
meeting was held, at which T. W.
Falconer and J. Trinder were reelected churchwardens and Mrs. J.
Trinder was elected to attend the
Synod of the Anglican Church to
be held at Prince Rupert this summer.
The new Church has a very
pleasing appearance and reflects
great credit on those responsible
for the raising of the necessary
funds during these depressed times.

Breezy Notes of Parliamentary Activities
Government Swings Axe On
Ottawa, April 25; (Special to
the Herald). Parliamentary estimates for the current fiscal year
have been submitted and show a
curtailment of $37,327,754 in
national expenditure as a result of
the program of economy enforced
upon his ministers by Premier
Bennett. Out of a total division of
42 spending services reductions
have been made in 33. The only
uoteable increases are for pensions
and in the votes to aid agriculture.
The economics which have been
effected will be somewhat counteracted in the supplementary estimates, where provision will have to
be made for the new Old Age Pensions policy under which the
Federal Government will assume
practically the entire cost or
operation. In the current year it
is expected that the expsnditures
under this heading will run to
over §20,000,000. The sum could
not be included in the main estimates as it is necessary to put
through the legislation under which
it will be distributed before a vote
is made.
The same factor holds with regard to government aid to technical education and to national highways, two items which will
probably swell the total outlay by
approximately $4,000,000.
On the same item of doing away
official automobiles, it appears the
Government will save net some

Don't Miss "The Bishop
Murder Case" To-
Night, May 2nd.
For those of our movie going
public who prefer a good, scary,
hair-raising mystery drama to a
romance, any old day, there is a
treat in store at the Anyox Theatre where Metro-Gold wyn-Mayeris
presenting an adaption of S. S.
Van Dine's popular thriller, "The
Bishop Murder Case."
The new all-talking mystery film
has all the requisites for giving its
audiences creeps and shivers, including an auspicious opening in
which a man is found with an
arrow through his heart after
which the three men whom you
most easily .suspect as being impli
cat.ed in the crime are also made
off with, which lets them out.
Who did do the killing is of
course finally revealed but the film
has been effectively put together
and its sequences built up that
when the denouement comes in the
final reels, it is quite logically car
ried out and the audience does not
feel that something has been' put
over on it.
The picture is photographically
effective and is by far the best of
the lot of movie thrillers which
have enamated from Hollywood to
the immense satisfaction of those
whose greatest pleasure is having
chills run up the spinal column.

British  Columbia's   Biggest
Tree Was Monster
Victoria, April 26.-Brit.Bh Columbia lumbermen hold that the
biggest tree ever cut in this province was a Douglas Fir in Lynn
Valley which was 417 feet in
height, and measured 300 feet to
the first limb. It was 25 feet in
diameter, 77 in oiroumference, and
was believed to be about 2.000
years old. The "Canada Lumberman" questions whether any tree
grown in future, except as a botanical specimen will ever surpass this
in size, since no lumbering firm
could afford to let a tree grow to
such age.

use it readily and declare that they

consider, one of the greatest
health menaces in tbe mining industry has been subdued.
