Anyox and Alioe Arm will again
celebrate the great Christmas festival, and there is no doubt that it
will be joyously celebrated by

Dr. Lang Receives Gift
From Can. Legion
A pleasant surprise awaited Dr.
J. W. Lang on Friday last, when
ho was invited to meet Members cf
the Anyox Branch Canadian Legion, at their quarters in the Elks'
Building. There was a large turnout of members who had met to do
honour to their comrade,Dr. Lang,
who is leaving the district. Dr.
Learoyd spoke of the good work
that had been done by his colleague
as a Legiouaire, and wished him
well in his new sphere. The departing member was made the
recipient of a cs.se of pipes, the
presentation being made by the
president of the branch, J. A. D.
In expressing his regret on having to sever his connection with
the branch, Dr. Lang stated that
he had many happy associations
with the Legion in Anyox. He
had been a member of the Branch
for many years, and had served as
president for one year, but did not
feel that he deserved any special
credit for having thus done his
duty. He looked upon the time of
his residence in Anyox as the most
pleasant part of his life He
brought greetings from Mrs. Lang
to all the members, and along with
her he expressed a sincere wish
that the branch would continue
and perform its function for the
full life of the camp.
Community singing and other
diversions, together with refreshments, made up a social evening
which was very enjoyable.

A New Year in Anyox without

as this event is inseparable from

carefully attended to by the Brother

Anyox Junior Badminton
Club Active Body
Last season a few enthusiatsic
members of the Anyox Badminton
Club undertook the training and
supervising of a number of junior
players. A tournament was held
which proved to be a great success.
This effort has resulted in the
formation of a Junior Badminton
Club, which numbers over forty
members and has its own elective
The president of the club is Leslie Murdoch, Vice'president, George
Kent; Secretary, Nadine Wenerstrom; Committee, Alex. Wardrope
Isabel MacDonald and Margaret
Smith- The club has a regular
evening for practise, and its members are most enthusiastic over the
game. Many of them would give
some of the senior members a real
battle over the nets.
Successful Party Held
By H. S. Students
The Ex-High School students
opened the Christinas season with
a party in honor of those now attending the Anyox High School.
The Party was held in the Oddfellows Hall on Friday, December
14th. The early part of the evening was spent playing games these
being topped off with a "Jelly Eating Contest" between Tom Cloke
and Frank Dodsworth. Both the
contestants were out to win and so
staged a very thrilling and amusing fight for supremacy, but alas
they were too good for each other,
so the contest ended in a tie. Another feature of the evening was
the arrival of the first ysar st udents
dressed in their initiation costumes.
After a delicious supper, dancing
was indulged in for the rest of the
evening, the music being supplied
by Buntain's Orohestra. Miss Joan
Bidgelow, a pianist, also assisted
in making tlie evening a success.
A large number of the young people
were present and had a very enjoyable time.

The Christmas Spirit
Anyox and Alice Arm in company
with all Christendom, will on Tuesday next celebrate the big festiva
of the year. On that day our
Saviour was born and shortly after
his, death nearly 2000 years ago,
until today, his birthday has been
joyously celebrated. It is honored
by many people of different colors,
in all climes, and after nearly 2000
years the enthusiasm is as great as
it was then. There is a reason for
this continued enthusiasm and the
cause is not hard to find. When
Christ was on earth he preached the
doctrine of friendship and brotherly
love one toward another. He assisted the suffering and championed
the cause of the lowly. On Christmas Day, we follow his example to
the best of our ability. We swing
along the street with a pleasant
smile and heartily wish everyone a
"A Merry Christmas. "We visit our
neighbours and they visit us, all our
cares are forgotten on that day.
We exchange gifts, greeting cards
and good wishes, we feel happy because we are doing good deeds. It
is nice to feel at peace with all mankind on Christmas Day and if we
carried it on as much as possible
throughout the year, the world
would be a happier place in which
to spend our brief lives.
You're going to hear a great deal
more in the immediate future about
"symmetallism," which simply
means the use of an alloy of gold
and silver as a monetary base. Apparently the proposal has no other
basis than a desire to "save the
face" of the poor deluded nuts, who
have been insisting that the nations
of the world could remain on, or
return to, a gold standard. It
seems rather silly to melt gold and
silver up into alloys and then use
the alloys as money, when it is just
as easy to use the two metals separately on a bimetalli basis.—Northwest Mining, Spokane.
Canadian Copper Production
Copper production in Canada
during September declined to 27,-
623,000 pounds from the preceding
month's total of 32,703,000 pounds
and the September 1933 output of
30,720,000. An increase of 23 per
cent was recorded during the first
nine months of 1934 as compared
with the corresponding period of
1933; the totals were 266,953,000
and 217,046,000. The output of
blister copper in September amounted to 25,815,000 pounds; in tbe preceding month 29,169,000 were
Coast Breweries Limited, owners
and operators of the Silver Spring
Brewery and the Victoria-Phoenix
Brewery, Victoria, B. C, and the
Westminster Brewery, New Westminster, B. C, have just placed a
new malt beverage on the market
under the name of "Lucky Lager."
This new Beer has many exceptional features which distinguishes
it from other beers now produced
aud sold in British Columbia. It is
the result of considerable research
and experimentation on the part of
Adolph Brachat, well-known brew-
master, who has brewed Silver
Spring Lager in this province for
many years!
Lucky Lager is a light, sparking
beer with an unusual smoothness of
texture and distinction of flavor
without any loss of satisfying
strength. It is what is known as a
"krausenized" beer which gives it
an abundant, rich foam that flows
creamily from every bottle and
ingers in the glass until the last
drop is finished.
Lucky Lager is offered to the
public as a Bonded Beer because
the maturing and aging period it
undergoes is guaranteed by a $10,-
000 Bond. This is the first time
Canadians have had a similar assurance as to the quality of the beer
sold. Lucky Lager is held in the
most modern and up-to-date storage cellars for a minimum of three
months before a single drop is pasteurized and bottled for consumption. Vast, glass-lined steel tanks,
subject to perfect refrigeration and
sanitary conditions are used for
this purpose.
A radically new and artistic label
design and attractive dark bottles
to keep out harmful light rays go to
complete a new product that promises to win wide favour with those
who enjoy healthful malt beverages.

Where Four Centuries Meet
Uniting the sixteenth and twentieth centuries as typified in the lower left hand and the upper right hand corners
of this group, stands the lordly Manoir Richelieu, the fashionable holiday resort at Murray Bay on the north
shore of the St. Lawrence and the site of the activities of the "One Hundred Associates" of New France. The
Casiiio„ shown at the upper Ieft„ designed after the famous Chateau de Ramezay built in Montreal in 1705, now
nouses one of the most complete sound and talking picture installations on this continent.
• Acoustic engiheers_of the Northern Electric Company have been working for some time with engineers of
Aft Canada Steamship Lines, to effect the necessary treatment for the perfect reproduction of the best products
rf the moving picture studios, thus affording visitors to the Manoir Richelieu still another addition to the many
attractions of this famous pleasure paradise.
Wild Animals Friendly on Eanff-Windermere Highway

many lovers ot nature, depicts incidents and friendliness of people
along oountry roads and in the rural
districts. There Is, however, a road

as in Grayson's book, but to the
friendliness of animals. Arotaials
termed wild, but in this Instance a
■word that cannot be applied to those
on the Banff-Windermere Highway.
3 There is <posstbly no more beautiful road than thla which ruoa from
Banff to Lake Windermere, in the
Columbia River Valley. The distance
of 104 miles is spectacular and the
scenes are constantly changing. The
views from the high passes looking
down into valleys, thousands of feet
Mow, tiny lakes surrounded by al-
pine meadows, rivers crossed and re-
crossed, and glimpses of cascades
tumbling down slopes from dizzy
htlghts are intriguing and beautiful
To this natural beauty is added
that of seeing the animals ln their
natural haunts. Rocky Mountain
sheep are seen on the road alon^
Vermilion Lakes not far trom Banff.
They are so tame that often motors

has lunches handed to him and the
remarks of "nice old chap, fine old
fellow," .please him tremendously,
and he will try to come even nearer.
Bozo no douM had many dreams
during the winter of summer tourists, and possibly has figured out la

New Record For Gold Out-
Put This Year
A new high gold record is the
goal of British Columbia mines.
This achievement will be a fitting
climax to a year of vigorous development, when British Columbia will
close her 1934 chapter in mineral
activities by reporting a new high
record in the value of her gold output. Canada's third largest gold-
producing province removed the
last barrier to the new goal by
eclipsing her 1933 record in the
first nine months of the current
year, when gold to the value of
87,750,000 was produced. This
compares with the 1933 total of

The Minerals of British Columbia
This Province offers excellent opportunities for useful and
profitable investment.    British Columbia has produced
OVER $1,352,000,000 WORTH OF MINERALS.
The gross value of mineral production for the six months
ended June 30th. 1934, exclusive of gold premium, is
estimated at $18,667,691.00, an increase of 50.5 per cent,
over the estimated value of the production in the corresponding six-month period of 1933.
GOLD PRODUCTION: Gold production showed a
decided increase; a total return in Canadian funds
to the gold producers of British Columbia during the
first six months for 1934 being approximately
$5,028,124.00, an increase of 81.3 per cent, over
the return in Canadian funds received during the
first half of 1933.

Recipe For Duck Soup Is
Who can give U9 a reliable
recipe for duck soup? The more
we hear about this delicacy—and
it sounds so good— the greater our
desire to try it. During the past
few weeks most of us iu Anyox
have enjoyed the delights of roast
duck—can it be possible that the
bones could be utilized for soup?
Some people would deplore such a
ghoulish idea, and prefer to allow
the bones to rest in peace; but
epicureans would not scruple to
use them if the resulting dish were
a delicacy. And why not utilize
everything possible in these times
of depression? Frankly we are
wondering if'Yluok soup" is a mere
ligure of speech or an actual reality, and if anyohe can send us a
tried aud tested recipe for it they
will confer a favor upon tho numberless readers of this journal of
the north.
