Golf Trophies Presented
At Annual Social
A social function, long to be remembered in Anyox was the First
Annual Card Party and Dance of
the Anyox Golf Club, held in the
Elks' Hall, on Friday, November
27th. There was a large gathering
of golfers and their friends, and
from beginning to end the evening
was most enjoyable. So many
were present that extra tables had
to be brought in for the cards.
Whist and bridge occupied the
early part of the evening, the winners being for whist: ladies' first
prize, Mrs. Jeffs; consolation prize,
Mrs. Neil McLeod. Gentlemen's
first prize, Mr. J. Vines; consola-
i tion, Mr. H. Hallcrow. The ladies'
first prize for bridge was won by
Mrs. H. R. Taylor, and the consolation prize by Mrs. R. Cormier.
For the gentlemen, Mr. W. R.
Lindsay literally "pocketed" the
first prize, while Mr. Thos. Sanderson got away with the booby prize.
,Durjug. the interval between
cards and dancing, the various golf
trophies won during the season
were presented by Mr. W. R.

Mrs. A. Hellman; Men's First
Prize, Mr. C. McMillan. For
Bridge, Mrs. C. Eklof secured the
first prize, and Mr. A. Pynn was
top scorer for gentlemen. The
cards were followed by an informal
dance, refreshments being served
in the interval.
Children   Remembered
This Christmas
With Parties
How many parties can a youngster absorb without getting tired of
them. This Christmas at Anyox
will surely be a test of their capacity, but we venture the opinion that
every child will bob up after each
party as fresh as ever, and be looking round for the next one. Here's
the Christmas list arranged so far,
and no doubt there will be others:
December 18th. United Church
Annual Christmas Tree and entertainment in. the Church Hall at the
December 19th. United Church
Christmas Tree and Party at the
December 22nd. Community
League Grand Annual Christmas
Tree and entertainment at the
Mine and the Beach. At the Mine,
in the picture Hall; at the Beach in
the Gymnasium. > These will be the
biggest and most elaborate parties
ever staged in Anyox. Everything
the children could *wish, and then
December 24th. Christmas Tree
and Grand Party for the children at
the Christ Church Hall.
December 18th. Loyal Order of
Moose Grand Annual Christmas
Tree and distribution of gifts to
children. The men of the Moose
Lodge never undertake anything by
halves, and this event is always a
notable one for the Moose children
of Anyox.
Dance For Adults Following
Mine Party
Following the Community
League Children's Party at the
Mine on December 22nd. there will
be a dance for grown-up folk, sponsored by the Community League.
There will also be a dance at the
Beach for the older children after
the regular Community League
celebration for the children on
December 22nd.
was provided by the Merrymakers'
orchestra, and an appetizing supper
was served. The Golf Club are to
be congratulated on the splendid
success of this, their first annual
social event.
Concert   By Amateur
Orchestra Enjoyed
From a musical standpoint the
concert given by the Anyox Amateur Orchestra on Sunday evening
the 29th. was a distinct success,
but it was not supported as it
might have been. We are inclined
to believe that it was not sufficiently advertised, and that many more
people would have attended had
they known' of the event earlier.
However, its excellence will surely
bespeak a larger attendance at the
next effort. ,
Among the fine numbers presented was the colorful overture: Chevalier Breton, and the characteristic
selection: "Echoes of the Volga."
These were rendered with nice regard for expression and phrasing.
The Russian Mazurka: "La Czar-
ine," was well received, also the
beautiful theme waltz of "Viennese
A feature of the evening was the
piano solo by Mr. C. Elgood
"Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C,
Sharp Minor. This stirring thougl
solemn number was played with
real artistic feeling and expression,
and received well-earned appreciation. As an encore Mr. Elgood
played Percy Grainger's "Country
Gardens." In excellent contrast to
the preceding item, this brilliant
number was nicely interpreted, its
many variations being distinctly
Elks Leading In Both Billiard
Great interest is being taken in
the Senior and Junior Billiard
Leagues this season. In the Senior
League, in which three, teams are
competing, the Elks are so far on
top with ten points, closely followed by the Orphans with six points
while the Boiler Shop is in the basement with only two points. However, they are by no means dis-
In the Junior League the Elks'
again lead with eight points, with
the Boiler Shop right on their heels
with six points, and the Orphans
just behind with four points. A
new star in the Junior firmament is
the Celts team, but so far they have
been eclipsed by the Boiler Shop,
who have hammered home some
good wins, However, the Celts,
with true Scottish stubbornness,
are determined to make the next
games tell a different story.
Alice  Arm  Christmas
Tree Will Be Held
December 22
The annual Christmas tree and
entertainment of the Alice Arm
children promises to equal if not
surpass those of previous years.
Arrangements are proceeding satisfactorily, and the children will be
given an evening of unalloyed
The training of the children for
the entertainment is being conducted by Mr. A. C Ironside, and it is
rumored that a few surprises are in
store for the audience in regard to
the varied and elaborate programme.
The affair will be held at T. W.
Falconer's hall on Tuesday evening,
December 22nd. No admission fee
will be charged and everyone is
cordially invited to attend.
The evening will commence with
the entertainment, at the termination of which Santa Claus is expected to pay the children a visit.
When he has distributed his presents refreshments will be served.
In addition to Mr. Ironside training the children, the ladies' committees have worked industriously
to make the evening a success.
To date the sum of $36.60 has been
donated, which will be used in purchasing presents for the children,
and refreshments.
Copper Makes Slight Advance
In Price
Responding to new hopes of a
world production curb with Belgian
producers agreeing to American
producers proposals, new life has
come into the copper metal market.
After it touched a new record
low of 6^ cents a pound last week,
the price of the metal at New York
rose to 6j4 cents a pound on Saturday. The export price held at 7
cents a pound.
Both lead and zinc held steady
with firmness in copper. Lead was
quoted at 3.85 cents a pound New
York and 3.65 cents a pound East
St. Louis. Zinc was 3.125 cents a
pound at East St. Louis and 3.475
cents a pound New York.
The Community League Christ
mas Carnival and Dance will be
held in the Gymnasium on Wednesday, December 23rd, instead of on
Christmas Eve as previously published.

Numerous causes have been
given for the present unprecedented world wide trade depression.
Some of them are a shortage of
gold, the abandonment of silver on
a parity with gold, introduction of
labor saving machinery, and the
aftermath of the huge expenditure
incurred in waging the late world
war. It is possible that not one
of the single causes listed above is
responsible. Rather, it is a combination of all, but aggravated
considerably by the introduction
of labor saving machinery. Here
is undoubtedly one of the chief
causes of unemployment, and the
worst phase is that as time goes
on, and even faster and more
automatic machinery is installed
than at present, unemployment will
continue to increase. Machinery
was necessary for us to attain our
present high form of civilization.
It is necessary for us at the present
time in order to maintain it. But
there is a limit to labor saving
machinery, and it appears that the
limit is reached. Improved machinery is continually being installed. Every occupation is
affected, from the pick and shovel
man to the highest paid mechanic.
We must adjust ourselves to these
new conditions, or accept defeat,
and force our civilization on the
down grade.   It is a big problem
The steady increase of taxation
in Canada is the cause of a lot of
thoughtful study by those who are
obliged to put their hand in their
pocket and pay whatever is demanded or lose their property,
which has probably been acquired
after years of hard work. The
big flaw in our taxation system is
that when business is dull and unemployment rampant, taxes are
increased. When business is good
and money is plentiful, taxes are
lower. It should be possible for
the government in power when
times are prosperous to create a
surplus fund to be drawn on when
trade depressions occur. The
fault of every government in power
when times are good is to spend
everything, and let the government
in power when hard times prevail
do the worrying.
Not so very long ago everyone
was bewailing the high price of all
commodities, especially foodstuffs.
Now that we have low prices for
everything, everyone seems perfectly willing for an increase in
prices so that better times may
prevail. The human race is hard
to satisfy.
Well, let's be cheerful. A casual
study of explosives shows that the
boom always follows the bust.
Men In Relief Camps
Greatly Reduced
Tho combing out process instituted
by the government in its unemployment camps has succeeded in
eliminating more than half the
men formerly maintained, it was
stated officially at Victoria last
week. Only about 5500 men out
of 15.000 housed in the camps a
few ago remain, the others have
been sent back to their homes.
It costs about $1 a day to maintain each man on the recently revised rations, so that the total cost
of the camps probably tuns to
about $150,000 a month.
No road work is being done, but
the men are spending their time
improving the oamps. Officials
state that the men are eager to
work, even for their board.
A further conference between
federal and provincial officials will
be held to arrange the terms under
which men will be employed, if and
when road work is resumed. The
province wants to cut their former
wages of $2 a day to about $7 a
month, but federal officials object
to this arrangement. An agreement between the two governments
is expected shortly.
Work At Churchill Is
Closed (or Winter
Winnipeg, Man., Nov. 28. The
busiest year in the history of
Churchill, Canada's new port on
Hudson Bay, has ended. Construction forces, which have averaged
1500 men during the season, have
been withdrawn and all works
closed down.
During the year the new elevator
with a capacity of 2,500,000 bushels
was completed and two trial shipments of grain to England were
made successfully. Arrangements
of the townsite under the Manitoba
Government's town planning
scheme was proceeded with and
considerable improvement was
made on the line of the Hudson
Bay Railway between The Pas and
Cougar bounties in British Columbia will be cut from $30 to $20,
effective shortly, it is announced.
The population of the prairie
provinces increased 392,537 during
the ten year period between the
1921 and 1931 censuses to 2,348,-
619, census figures show.
Balance of Trade in Favor
Of Canada
Ottawa—A favorable balance of
trade amounting in value to $10,-
595,123 is noted forthe month of
October, according to the current
issue of the National Revenue Review. In that month Canada exported goods with a value of $56,-
533,999, and imported goods worth
$45,940,874. For the same month
last year the balatice in favor of this
country totalled $5,939,581.
Comparing the two months, Canadians in October last imported
$32,417,477 worth of goods less
than in October, 1930, and their
exports dropped by $17,242,511.

Basketball  Games  Of
Past Week Are
Three games were played at the
meet on Friday the 27th. In the
Boys' Intermediate League the
Wildcats overcame the Vikings in
a tough battle, 9-3.
The High School and Spooks
played a full session game with a
score of 9 all, and in an overtime
period the High School cinched the
game. The whistle blew for the
end of the overtime period just as
the ball was sailing into the basket
being thrown by Helen Calderoni.
Same was, however, disallowed.
In the Men's Senior game the
Celts appeared to have matters all
their own way against the Store,
who were evidently unable to get
up steam. The game ended 20 to
4 in favor of the Blue and Whites.
A Senior League game was played on Monday the 30th. between
the Vandals and the Store. The
former continued their bold raiding
tactics and got away with a total
score of 21, as against 10 by the
representatives of the local emporium. Be it said for the latter,
however, that it must have been
their off night, as on the play they
should have done much better.
As an added attraction there was
an exhibition of badminton, Mrs.
J. Smith playing Mrs. J. A. D.

was followed'by a Men's Doubles
event in which Tom Cloke and Bert
