[Anyox Dam will
be Big Structure
[Height of Dam will be 138
feet and it will be 640 feet
in length
Construction work will soon
(oommenoe on the erection of the
large storage dam on Falls Creek.
lit will be known as Dam No. 2
and will be used for. the purpose of
storing about 25,000 aore-feet of
water for the use of the hydraulic
power  plant  during  the    water
^scarcity of the winter months, and
will eliminate the need for the auxiliary   steam    plant,    except   in
: extreme emergencies. A construction railroad from the present railroad line to the dam site is. well
along(toward completion, and will
be ready for use by the time the
' snow has disappeared.
The dam is of reinforced concrete
1 construction, of the multiple-arched
f type, designed by Mr. J. S. East-
I wood, of Oakland, California.   The
[height of the dam will be 138 feet
above the bed of the stream, and
the extreme width along the crest
will be/640 feet. The arches are of
24"feet' span and are supported by
buttresses, extending along the bed
of the stream for a maximum
distance of 160 feet at the centre of
the dam; The spillways are of the
syphon type, enabling the dam .to
be filled to the crest, thus utilizing
the maximum storage capacity.
For the purpose of discharging
floating debris, trash, etc, a Taiutor
Gate will be installed. The flow of
water-required for the power house
Iwill be controlled by three valves,
each 30in. diameter, placed near
the bottom of the dam, and operat-
[ ed from an interior passageway.,
About 15,000 oubio yards of
concrete and about 200 tons/of
reinforcing steel will be utilized in
the work.   The sand and gravel
! necessary for the concrete will he
obtained from the bed of the stream
a'short distanoe above the site of
the structure. Approximately 150
men will be employed in the construction work, which "it is hoped
to complete this summer.
April Meeting of the
Anyox Parents and
Teachers Association
—#—>/
There was a good turnout at the
April meeting of the Anyox
Parents and Teachers Association,
held in the New Sohool on last
Friday evening.
The programme was provided
by the parents and proved both
highly instructive and entertaining.
Mrs J. Haslett of the nyne, read
and elucidated most ably a paper
on a current subject of great
interest; "the Junior High Sohool
—its place in the educational
scheme." -
It was pointed out that owing
to oertajn imperfections in the
public school system; to, the too
great gap between elementary and
high school subjects; to faulty examination; and also to deficiencies
in mental calibre of available
secondary school material, chat in
many larger as well as smaller
centres, in our own province particularly, the junior high school
'aids the entrance pupils to-adjust
themselves'to new scholastic environment. To some who would not
ordinarily spend three" full years
in present High School work, this
intermediate school offers facilities
for backward pupils and stimulus
to students who incline toward
commercial or technical subjects.
It would appear to some that the
Junior High Sohool is a necessary
innovation .until such a time as
certain curricula defeots in elementary schools are remedied, and a
saner standardization of teaching
is adopted.
Musicial items contributed by
Mrs. Herrin, Miss Leitch, Mr. McColl, and Mr; Thomson greatly enhanced the enjoyment of a
pleasant and profitable evening.
The refreshment committee made
provision for those present in their
usual delectable manner. . ■
The programme for. May will be
in charge of the /Schools' teaching
staff's which is making a hid to kejp
up to the\ standard set by the
parents.'        V" '?,

Bachelor's Dance
Held at Alice Arm
;; All those who attended the
Bachelor's Dance held at the Alice.
Arm Hotel, on Friday evening,
April 7, are enthusiastic in their
praise of the good time extended to
the residents of the Camp on the
occasion of this annual event. The
Bachelors excelled themselves in
providing an excellent programme
of dances Tind musio, and every
minute of the evening was brimful
of pep and action. The repast
furnished by the lonesome cooks
was indeed sumptuons and without
doubt a surprise to many of the
good housewives of the town.
Cakes, salad, beans, sandwiohas
and ice cream were there to tempt,
and tickle the palate, and from the
manner in which they disappeared
we are firm in our conviotion. that,
the proof of the pudding is in the
eating.

ANYOX   SERVICE   ASSOCIATION
Weekly Meeting Held of
The Anyox Community
League
At the meeting of the Anyox
Community' League, held at the
Mine Hall, on Wednesday, April
12; Councillor Buzzelle reported
that the dance held at the Reading
Room, on Friday, April 7, was a
remarkable success.
It was decided that an organization meeting for baseball and football  be held on Friday evening, '
April 14.
It was also decided that .the '
swings & other paraphernalia which
have beenjiriused since last summer be again placed in the
children's playgrounds and rest
seats along the mine road.
The question of responsibility for
the ball equipment which recently
arrived, was discussed and action
deferred until a later meeting.
The meeting was informed by
Mr. A. Roberts, representative of
the Recreation Department that a
building should be constructed at
the ball grounds for the convenience of players who might not have"
time to dress elsewhere, and the
initial equipment could be kept
there.
The matter of radio telephoning
was brought up and the Council
was informed that no action could
betaken in connection with the
matter until such time, as Mr. Mac-
Donald has demonstrated the
feasibility of Operating successfully
a feature of this nature.
It was decided that the. committee in charge of entertainments
arrange with the Elk's committee
for a schedule of dances and other
entertainments that would -<not<
conflict.   ■
The question of catalogueing the
books at the library was introduced
.by Councillor Armour and after
some discussion it was left over to
be dealt with at a future meeting.
The committee for the "Save' the -
Children. Fund" of the Russian
famine, in the person of the Rev.
J. Herdman, asked the Council to
augment the fund raised here ou
Tag Day, making it $500.00. The
sum asked for was $44.55: this was
granted by the Council and this
action has enabled the committee
to supply one kitchen complete.
There was considerable discussion over the poll recently taken in
connection with daylight saving.
As the poll taken was merely, for
the expression of opinion as to the'
advisability of bringing in daylight
saving for certain months, the
Council had not provided scrutineers, etc. It is now very probable
that a regular election will take
place shortly, that is, if the Granby
Co. are satisfied that such a course
will be in the best interests of
everyone. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD,   Alice Arm,   Saturday, April 15th;, 1922

A table recently submitted by
the Vancouver Chief of Police;
showed that 2328 men and 196
women and girls had been arrested
for selling, distributing or being in
possession of cooaine, morphine or
opium; that 211 men and ten
women had been charged with
keeping opium joints, and that
1404 men and 23 women had been
found frequenting these places.
The present government, like all
previous governments of the province who have been in office for a
few years are getting a consider-^
able amount of criticism.    Every
district is crying for money to be
spent in that particular part of the
province and the government are
at their wits end to satisfy all the
demands.   If a sum of money is
spent for improvements in one part
of the province, a yell goes up
from everyone else for a similar
sum to be spent in their particular
town or district, and so the merry
game goes on.   The government
is no doubt trying to do the best it
can for^he province as a whole,
but  no  government   in   British
Columbia ever satisfied the entire
population in regard to spending
money oh public works.   It is as
well to remember that the government finds it hard to collect money
at the present time, just as an individual does, due to the scarcity of
the elusive dollar.   There is one
thing the people of Alice Arm can
be proud of, and that is they have
never clamoured for public money
to be spent in this district when it
could be spent to greater advantage in some neighbouring district.
The' time   has   come, however,
when the attention of the government, should be called to the pressing needs of Alice Arm and also
the Naas Valley.     The Kitsault
River Valley   which  is without
doubt one of the richest mineral
belts in British Columbia is without  transportation  of   any kind,
except pack horses.   The government should be able to find some:
solution of the difficulty and make
it possible to utilize the right-of-
way of the Dolly Varden Railway
either as a railway or as a wagon
road.   As the road now stands it
is   useless  to  everyone.     Trail
connections   at  least,  should be
made between Alice Arm and the
Naas Valley this summer, in order
. to open up that rich agricultural
valley and provide communication
with the interior, and the trail could
later be converted into a wagon
road.   To obtain value for money
spent the government could not do
better than carry out these two
projects and there is no doubt that
both these matters will soon be
, given consideration.

I used to think a printer's life
way one of peaceful joy, he had no
care* to blight his day, nor money,
to decoy. I thought that all he
had to do, to make the shekels roll
—Was printing half-sheet auction
bills or ballots for the poll; that
advertisers flocked in gangs to fill
his paper up, with sales of hardware, ham and beans, and oft a
brindle pup: that when the toil of
day was o'er, a peaceful pipe he'd
smoke, and Smile because a wad of
kale was in the bank to soak. "~HBut
I have changed my views some^
what since I-now run a sheet; my
time is spent in hustling hard in
making both ends meet. At times
I, feel like pulling stakes to make
another go at some old job I don't
oare what, where I oan make some
dough. The printing trade is gone
to pot, the price is on the blink—
the competition I have got will
soon drive the to drink. But Jones
,who runs' a butcher .shop, and
Brown who peddles beans* tejl me
they've.got to quit, by Heck, and
drift to other scenes,' where, they
pan. get some other work—and not
too muoh of that—the kind of
work they're in just now, has
fallen rather flat* And so, when I
contrast my job of peddling Out
the news, and selling joijwork to
the folk who: pay. me 'aU my dues,
I find my life is made of things,
that happen on the spot^-that
make a man forget his cares; his
job is just to sell his wares, cori-
