Branch of the Anyox Community
League held their annual Christ'
mas Tree and Party for the children. The affair took plaoe in the
Mine Hall, and every ohild living
at the Mine was present. The big
Christmas Tree was beautifully de-
corated, and held on its branches a
gift for every child. Santa Claus
carried out his duties in a most
efficient manner. It is understood
that Mr. McNicholas was' an im
portant factor in the evening's
plans. Games were indulged in

that would add to the enjoyment
of the evening. The Mine hrancl

their reputation of doing things in
a thorough mariner.
A gay Christmas tree, with all
the regular colored lights and
trimmings, brightened up the men's
ward at the Anyox General Hospital on Christmas Eve, when the
Women's Hospital Auxiliary entertained the inmates of the Hospital.
Both patients and staff were included.
Santa, who was brought in on
Jack McConnachie's plane, arrived
prompt on time, and was soon
busily engaged in distributing the
numerous gifts. Afterwards he
entertained the company with a
song. "If I ever Marry Again."
An    old-fashioned   dance   was
daintily performed by  Judy   Lea-
j royd and Nanette Taylor,  and the
Misses Bessie and Lillian  Barclay

[style.     Mrs.   Pinckney   sang   in
(splendid   voice,   "Old    Fashioned
j House."    Mr.  V.  S.   McRae de-
(lighted everyone with a well executed    violin    solo,    and    Mrs.     J.
IMacMillan gave a pleasing piano
number, and accompanied the vari-
|ous dancing and vocal items.
It was specially noted that many
| gifts from friends and relatives of
| the Hospital inmates were forth-
I coming, and the Women's Auxiliary
j desire to thank everyone who in
' this and any other way assisted in
making the affair a success.    At
the close, dainty refreshments were
served to all present.
Anyox Rangers Entertained
By Mrs. Lang
On Tuesday evening last the
.* Anyox troop of Rangers and their
friends were entertained at the home
of Mrs. Lang. The affair took the
form of a dance, all the members of
the troop appearing dressed as children, while their boy friends emulated them as far as possible. It
proved to be one of the merriest
events of the season. A delightful
supper was served and about twenty
five young people were present.
Midnight Mass Celebrated At
Catholic Church
A large number of people assembled at the Catholic Church on
Christmas Eve, when Midnight
Mass was held. Special music was
rendered by the choir under the able
direction of Mrs., Duffy, and the
Rev. Father Leray delivered a most
appropriate sermon.

Large Numbers Enjoy
Annual Pioneer Mess
Dinner
Established as a Christmas institution for many years, the annual
Pioneer Mess Dinner and Dance
was held on Wednesday last, being
attended by a large crowd of merrymakers. This function is one of
the gayest of the' festive season.
The brightly decorated dining hall
was filled to capacity, while the library, converted for the time into
a dance hall, held a large crowd of
merry dancers. Novel hats and
noise-makers added still further to
the fun. Splendid music was furnished by the Merrymakers' Orchestra and the gay crowd were kept on
their toes until the small hours of
Thursday morning*
The committee are to be congratulated on their success in maintaining the splendid reputation for
whole-hearted jollify which attaches
to this annual event.

Moose Christinas Tree
Greatly Enjoyed
Always enthusiastic where the
children are concerned, the local
lodge of the Loyal Order of Moose
outdid themselves at their annual
Christmas Tree and Party, which
was held in the Elks' Hall on Friday last the 23rd. The committee
in charge were Messrs J. Deeming,
Harry Ward and A. Pynn, and 83
children were looked after this year
as against 78 last year. Bach child
was presented with a handsome
gift from the tree. Santa Claus
carrying/ out his duties in a real
winning manner. It was suspected that Mr. Jack Vine was present
in the hall during this interesting
session.
Games were afterwards indulged
in and the children enjoyed an evening which they will remember for
some time. A dance was afterwards held for the grown-ups, delightful music being supplied by
Harry Ward's Orchestra. This
informal affair was greatly enjoyed
by a large number of dancers.
Basketball Personnels
Coach "Norm" Redman.
The popular trainer and supervisor of the girls' team known as "the
Pals" is regarded as having quite a
piece of work on his hands in making a winning team out of this aggregation. Will he do it? Well,
if "strategy, my boy" will turn the
trick, it will be done, for Norm has
often been heard to say that "strategy is the thing". Norman previously trained the Woodwards'
Senior Girls' Team, and they could
play basketball. So far this season,
success has turned a cold shoulder
to the Pals, but wait awhile and
watch them win. Didn't the High
School wallop the Crushermen, and
wallop 'em good?
Mrs. V. H. Sansun, wife of the
United Church minister at Port
Simpson, passed away at that town
on Christmas Day after an illness
of about only four days. Death
was caused by pneumonia following
an attack of influenza. She leaves
a husband and six children, the eldest of whom is thirteen years old.
The late Mrs. Sansun was well
known to several people in Anyox
who mourn her passing.
Christmas. Visiting parties
throughout the day and dinner
parties at night were conducive of
the usual Christmas friendly feeling,
handshaking and the extending of
good wishes were universal.
A celebration of Holy Communion will be held at St. Michael's
Church tomorrow, Sunday, January
1st. at 10.15 a.m. Mr. J. Walter-
Hughes will officiate.
Choir  Gives  Splendid
Rendition Of
"Messiah"
An appreciative audience beard
Handel"s "Messiah" in the ElkR'
Hall on Wednesday the 21st. given
by the augmented choir of the United Church, under the direction of
N. R. Redman. For a comparatively small choir the inspiring
oratorio wasspleiididly given. The
chorus work was excellent, being
sung with confidence and vigor.
Careful attack and finish, so necessary in these majestic choruses,
were well observed. We would
instance the well known "For unto
us a Child is Born." The precision
was such that it would have done
credit to a ohoir of much greater
size. The solos were faithfully interpreted, Mrs. J. Peel taking the
soprano solos, Mrs. MacMillan the
contralto, and N. R. Redman the
tenor and baritone.
Anyox is proud of this ambitious
and painstaking choir, and its
efforts to foster the love of good
music in our midst.
Beach Children Enjoy Annual
Christmas Party
Full of pep and rear-in' to go,
practically all the children residing
at the Beach, gathered at the Gymnasium on Thursday afternoon,
December 22nd. for the annual
Christmas Party given by the Community League. The hall was nice
ly decorated and a number of the
parents turned out to watch the
proceeding*. An active committee
comprised of L. Gillies, M. Patrick
and V. S. McRao were iu charge,
and valuable assistance was rendered by Mrs. F. Kydd and Mrs. Patrick and other willing helpers.
The music was supplied by Mrs.
Atkinson and Mr. F. Dresser.
Games were played and a fine
supper was served then more games
drills, etc. were indulged in. The
party broke up at 8 o'clock and the
youngsters, playing their newly
acquired noise producers made their
way home after a most enjoyable
time.
After officiating as parish priest
in Anyox for the past three months,
the Rev. Father Leray returned to
Stewart on Wednesday last, where
he has been stationed for the past
seven years. It was with great
regret that he left Anyox, as in his
short stay here he has made a host
of friends, whose good wishes he
carried with him on his departure.

Tomorrow we enter upon another year. Whether it will deal
kindly with us we do not know
At the present time the people of
the world are filled with anxiety
for the future and many are be
coming restless under the trying
conditions that have existed during
the past three years. One thing is
certain, the depressed conditions at
present existing cannot be endured
for an indefinite period.
A change of some sort is necessary and it is probable that during
the coming year the foundation will
be laid for a return to normal
prosperity. If a successful policy
cannot be formulated by the leading statesmen of the world, then it
is only a matter of time until the
present system of buying and selling etc. is relegated to the scrap
heap and a more advanced system,
suitable to the present mechanical
age is formed. History shows us
that when a system fails to function
for the well-being of the masses it
begins to decay and eventually
passes out of existence.
The present year has been
twelve months of trial and tribula
tion for many who, anxious for
employment, cannot procure it.
Although there have been some in
this district, who have keenly felt
the effects of the depression, on the
whole we have a lot to be thankful for. The big plant of the
Granby Co. operated uninterruptedly throughout the present year,
and if this record is maintained
during 1933 we shall still have a
lot more to be thankful for when
the year closes. The operation
of the Granby Company's plant
was carried on without interruption
at full capacity, despite unbelieve-
able low prices for copper, and the
management are to be congratulated on their ability in being able
to meet rapidly changing conditions successfully.
While the outlook for higher
copper prices is not very bright at
the present time, we must hope
for the best, and hope with courage, combined with good common
sense can surmount almost any
obstacle. Hope for better conditions, with courage to carry on
must be our watchword. We
have a hard pull ahead. What is
past is gone. Ahead we must go
and in our hands lies our future
happiness and prosperity.
Everyone on the north coast
knows that the Alice Arm &
Anyox Herald is a bright little
newspaper. But since December
21st. three-quarters of the population of British Columbia have been
Outlook For Copper In
Canada
, Unlimited production of copper,
with low-cost producers fighting
for what little business is available
at price concessions, appears to be
in prospect as a result of the failure of the recent conference of important world producers at New
York to agree upon a formula fori
limiting production. It is now
regarded as likely that some of the
weaker companies will be forced to
cease operations entirely unless
some compromise is yet made.
Eastern Canadian copper prod nc-
ers are in a more fortunate position
owing to their ability to produce
at low cost. International Nickel,
the largest single copper producing
company in Canada, produces copper with nickel of which it has
virtually a monopoly. Noranda,
still regarded as a copper mine, is
also one of Canada's leading gold
producers and can in consequence
meet low price competition if necessary.
At the Pacific coast the situation
s complicated by lack of a smelter
on the Canadian side of the boundary to handle British ores. Granby, it is expected, could continue to
operate as it has its own smelter
but as no British preference will be
allowed on Canadian copper smelted in United States, Britannia
would have to seek a market outside the Empire. While Britannia
is regarded as a low-cost producer
the outlook at the moment is uot
very bright.
According to James Y. Murdoch,
president of Noranda, Canada can
produce 194,000 short tons of copper annually at a cost of 5 cents a
pound or less—Financial News.

to the Liquor Store and distributed

this visit, despite the insinuations
that we may have been "seeing

A memorial to an event of outstanding importance
in both Canadian and American history, has been
erp:tcd on the wall of the Chateau Frontenac io
Quebec.
Alihou-h many thousands of American tourists
pTularly invade the ancient city and throng the corridors of the great hostelry, it is not often realized
(lint their ancestors once attempted to gain admittance to t',ie city with less success. Early in the
War of Independence two forces of American soldiers
were despatched against Canada, one under General
Richard 'Montgomery up the Richelieu against Montreal, and the other under Colonel Benedict Arnold
through the wilds of Maine against Quebec. The two
armies united their resources before the city of
Oucbec in mid-December, 1775, and commenced a
r-iege that lasted for 154 days throughout the ensuing winter. Montgomery had carried all before him
and captured the forts of St. Johns and Chambly, and
occupied Montreal and Three Rivers, so Quebec re-
rn'ned the last stronghold of importance held by the
British. Arnold had encountered great difficulty in
his march, and his expedition was depleted by about
a third of its members.
The defense of Quebec was under General Sir Guy
Carleton who had a garrison of about 1,600, about
equal to the strength of the attackers, composed of a
few regulars, including the Seventh Royal Fusiliers,
the Royal Emigrants, a Corps of Seamen, and British
and French-Canadian Militia.
Early in the morning of December 31, 1775, the
chief assault was delivered by the American troops,
bravely led by the commanders in person, Montgomery being killed at Pres-de-Ville, and Arnold
wounded at Sault-au-Matelot at the other. side of
the town. The attack was unsuccessful, many prisoners were captured by the defenders, and the sieg?
thereafter became little more than a blocks i •• until
relief arrived from Great Britain in May, 177G.
The tablet in commemoration of the part taken by
the Royal Fusiliers in the defence of the town
"throughout the rigors of a Canadian winter, aga'nr.t
an active and enterprising enemy" was unveiled in
Quebec on Dominion Day, July 1, in the presence of
the Governor-General. A detachment of the Canadian
Fusiliers of London, Ontario, with two officers fron
the parent unit in England, represented the Second
Royal Fusiliers. The arrangements were made by
General Charles F. Winter, secretary of the Dominion
of Canada Rifle Association, and formerly a member
of the Royal Fusiliers,       ■ -    - ■   •%■

creeps and then sends you into
spasms of laughter. The story is
cleverly and smartly mixed up, with
surprising developments and unfor-

Canada May Break Belgian
Radium Monopoly
Signs are accumulating that
when Canada begins commercial
production of radium next year
there may be precipitated a struggle for control of markets which
will redound to the benefit of humanity by a break-up of the Bel
gian monopoly and lower prices for
radium.
There is a gram of radium in
every 10 tons of pitchblende ore
from the deposits under development at Great Bear Lake, in
Canada's far north mineralized
belt. Latest figures available regarding the Belgian Congo deposits
are to the effect that it takes forty
tons of hand-picked ore to produce
one gram of radium.

Anyox Thoroughly Enjoyed
Christmas Season
There was no lack of Christmas
cheer in Anyox this year. All the
good things of the season were in
evidence, turkeys galore were consumed, and ample liquid cheer was
obtainable. An endless stream of
Christmas parcels, gladdening the
heart with their gay wrappings,
flowed in and out of the post office.
Bright Christmas trees shone in almost every home. Although slip- j
