Officers and Men  Of
Delhi Will Be
Numerous Picnic Parties
This Week
For the officers and men of the
"Delhi" there will be a full program
of sports and social functions.
There will be one or more football
games. They will be invited to
play tennis, golf, and badminton.
There will be conducted tours
through the plant and the mine,
which will no doubt prove of great
interest to the visitors.
The plant will be shut down on
Tuesday the 30th. so that this will
be a gala day for everybody.
The various clubs of Anyox will
co-operate by extending the courtesies of their organizations to the
visitors. Sports teams from the
boat will probably meet teams here j
in various sports.
It is very probable that a big
dance will be held in the Gymnasium.
This dance will be free to everyone
The committee in charge of the
dance will be composed of representatives of the Community League
and the Canadian Legion, as follows;^ League, Ed. Johnson, chairman; D. Cleal, F.B. Faulkner.
Legion, F. Pearson, W. O, Boyce.
The reception committee is composed of W. R. Lindsay (chairman),
Mrs. C. O. Fricker, Mr. T. W.
Cavers, Mr. C. O. Fricker and Mr.
V. S. McRae as Secretary.
A special reception for the officers
will be held at the residence of Mr.
Bocking. Details of this appear
Anyox holiday visitors and Alice
Arm people have taken full advantage of the fine weather of the past
week, enjoying themselves in the
brilliant sunshine out-of-doors.
Picnic parties have been organized
and the cool shady spots by the
gurgling brooks where the trout
lie in wait for the fishermen's bait
have been a favorite rendezvous.
On Sunday, Canyon Creek at 4-
mile on the Dolly Varden railway
resembled a fair ground, and everyone from infants to grandads appeared to be having a good time.
The creeks at seven mile also had
their quoto of anglers and campers.
Others journeyed to the Illiance
river, the north-east fork, or Copper
j Creek, and the last arrivals reached
home as the hour of darkness was
approaching. Some had fish and
some didn't, but all enjoyed them

Winners of Ladies' Golf
The ladies' approaching and putting golf competition which was
held on Friday the 12th. was won
by Mrs. Fricker, after a play-off
between Mrs, Lee, Mrs. Gorman
and Mrs. Fricker. The driving
I contest was won by Mrs. Gorman.
For the benefit of the men at the
Mine, a very fine latest model
Rogers radio is to be installed by
the Mine Branch of the A. C. L. in
the Mine Pool Room. This is welcome news for the Mine men, as
they can spend many enjoyable
! evenings at the Pool Room listening
to the finest programs available.
Father of M. Chenoski Passes
Away at Prince Rupert
M. Chenoski of Anyox received
the sad news this week that his
father, Mr. William Chenoski had
passed away on Wednesday the
17th. at the hour of 6 a.m. at
Prince Rupert. The late Mr
Chenoski was 72 years of age, and
had suffered a long illness prior to
his death. The funeral was held
yesterday afternoon, interment
taking place at Kairview cemetery,
Prince Rupert.
Rev. Father Wolfe Leaves
For South Africa
After a stay in Anyox of about
eighteen months, Rev. Father
Charles Wolfe left on Friday last
for Natal, South Africa, where he
will be stationed. On his way to
this distant point he will visit
France. Father Wolfe, with his
genial nature and sympathetic
manner has made a host of friends
in this district, and will be greatly
missed. A large number were at
the boat to bid him farewell.
A fire, which would quickly have
become a serious conflagation was
discovered in the nick of time on
Sunday evening at the home of Mr.
and  Mrs. J. Trinder at Alice Arm.
The fire was first seen by Mrs. B.
Turbitt and Miss Leah Kergin who
noticed the flaming curtains in a
bedroom window. The alarm was
quickly raised and the fire extinguished. The window curtains were
destroyed, also some bedding, clothing etc. Mrs. Trinder and daughter Joan were away from home at
the time. The cause of the fire
could not be ascertained.
The British Government is ready
to give a preference of 4c. a pound
on Canadian copper. This is good
news for British Columbia and especially for Anyox where everyone's
living depends on the sales of copper at a fair price.
It is expected that this preference
will completely offset the 4c. duty
imposed on Canadian copper by the
United States, and which has had
the result of closing the U. S. market to Dominion copper.
Much of Britain's copper supplies
are imported from the U. S. much
of it being the supplies that have
been shipped from Canada and
refined there. Now the copper is
likely to go direct from Canada to
Britain after being refined in the
Dominion, or it will be refined in
the Old Country and afterwards
sold there.
Saturday Night Dance Held
At Alice Arm
Although very short notice was
given the dance held at T. W. Falconer's hall on Saturday evening,
was well attended. A large number
of Anyox visitors and Alice Arm
people quickly assembled and the
spacious floor was soon covered
with a gay throng, dancing to the
inspiring strains of the Alice Arm
orchestra. The dance terminated
at midnight, no refreshments were
Wharf Road^ Caves In
The wharf road from Alice Arm
to the wharf was rendered useless
for a day or two this week, when a
part of it subsided leaving a hole.
The cause of the trouble was the
collapse of mining timbers covering
an old prospecting tunnel over
which the road is built.
Mrs. M. A. McKenzie
Passes Away
A death of unusual sadness occurred at Anyox on Wednesday
when Mrs. M. A. McKenzie passed
away at 8 p.m. at the age of 37
years. The cause of death was
heart trouble. The late Mrs McKenzie was married to M. A.;>Mc-
Kenzie on June 22nd. of this year
at West Vancouver, and arrived in
Anyox on June 24th. She formerly lived here six years ago previous
to her late residence.
Mr. McKenzie is an old time resident of Anyox and the heartfelt
sympathy of his many friends i= extended to him in his sad bereavement.

Price Reduction Made
In Picture Show
A new low admission price of
25 cents has been made on Men's
tickets for Picture Shows. The
new price will go into effect on
Saturday, August 20th. This special reduction will be allowed to
Community. League members only,
applying to all shows, Tuesdays
and Saturdays. It applies to all
League members at Beach and Mine.
To obtain this new benefit it will
be necessary for a member to display his membership card to the
ticket seller. It is not necessary to
have the membership card punched,
as the reduction now applies to all
shows instead of one show a month
as formerly. The privilege will not
be allowed unless the membership
card is produced. Only one ticket
for a show may be purchased at the
new price per each membership card
shown, and the card must be presented by the person named thereon.
Membership privileges are not transferable. The above rules will be
strictly adhered to.
The price to ladies will remain at
25 cents, To non-members of .the
Community League former prices
will prevail; that is 50 cents on Saturday evenings and 35 cents on
Tuesday and Saturday matinees.
The Council wish to make it possible for the members to afford the
show more often, and thus reap a
greater share of the benefits of
membership. It is hoped that the
additional patronage will offset the
loss in revenue through the reduction. Non-members will readily
realize the value of membership,
and will be welcomed as members.
Reception For Officers  Of
Delhi Being Arranged
On Tuesday the 30th. a reception
will be held at Mr. Bocking's house
for the officers of the"Delhi". All

come as early as possible during
those hours. The girls of the Rangers will serve tea. The committee
wish to emphasise that this invitation is issued to every lady in Anyox.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
During the past three years we
have heard tales of woe, of distress
and poverty, of worse things to
come, and even complete anarchy
and the ruin of our present form of
civilization has been freely predict'
ed. Such tales of woe, told and
retold have left their impression on
us. We are becoming despondent, and at such times a tonic is
necessary. It is sometimes good
to look on the brighter side, and
when we do so we find that all is
not lost, and that there is hope for
the future. Following are a few
of the ingredients for a tonic that
ought to revive the despondent
patient and pep him up:
Mineral production of B. C. for
the first half of this year is valued
at $14,336,060. The saw log
scale for the same period was
804,379,000 board feet, and ex-
• ports to Great Britain and Australia showed a gain. Seventy-seven
of the seventy-eight municipalities
of the province recorded in th
aggregate a net reduction of
$5,600,000 in their debt over the
last 18 months. Workers in B. C.
industries received $ 131,841,00 8
in wages last year. Great Britain
has given a preference of 4 cents a
pound on Canadian copper, and
lumber has also been given a
substantial preference. This will
give considerable aid to B. C.
copper mines, logging camps and
sawmills. The Provincial Government has been awarded $2,000,
000 from the Federal Government
in payment of relief accounts out
standing for 1931. Substantial
reductions have been made in
prices of Canadian liquors sold at
government liquor stores. Th
production of gold in the province
this year is expected to surpass all
records. New lode mines are
being brought to the producing
stage, and placer mining is being
followed by hundreds of individual miners scattered throughout the
province. The big wheat crop on
the prairies this year will undoubtedly increase British Columbia's
prosperity. Millions of dollars will
be put into the hands of western
farmers, and a big demand for
B. C. lumber, fruits, canned goods,
etc. will result. Prices of farm
and other products have commenced to rise and producers are
beginning to breath a little easier
and feel more hopeful.
While we still may have a hard
pull yet before we reach our old
time prosperity goal, indications
during the past few weeks point in
the direction of better times and
still better times. As commodity
prices   rise   money   will become
First Cup Tie Game Is
Won by Celts
A nice crowd turned out to see
the first game of the cup-tie series,
played on Thursday the 11th. between the Celts and the Mine.
Both teams, by mutual agreement,
incorporated some players from the
Rangers, Donaldson, Williams and
Buchanan playing; for the Mine and
Ion for the Celts. Morrison, the
Mine captain was absent.
The Mine opened up the play
and pressed hard, but the Celts'
defence was sound. The fast forwards of the Celts gave the Mine
a lot of trouble, Dyer playing- a
cool and steady game at back.
Buntain broke the ice for the Celts
with a grounder from close in.
The next was by Horner from a
pass by Buntain, from a header by
McColl. After the interval the play
was kept open, long passes being a
feature. Gillies, from left wing got
in a swift shot to the corner of the
net, and Horner made it a quartet
a little later.
Mine again carried the play up-
field and Owen had tough luck with
a nice shot which struck the upright
and bounced out. The game was
capably handled by J. Evans.
The teams: Mine, Moore, Dyer,
Calderoni, Ferguson, Hamilton,
Williams, Schaefer, Comadina,
Donaldson, Owen, Buchanan.
Celts: Bell. H. Johnston, Ion, Rig-
by, VV. /. Johnston, Field, Gillies,
Steve Peel, Horner, Buntain, McColl.
Canadian Gold Production Is
The reason why Canadian gold
mines continue to prosper on an
unprecedented soale and pay larger
dividends and bonuses is graphically indicated in the following:
Canadian gold production has
risen 50 per cent in two years.
In the first five months of 1930
gold output was 802,790 ounces; in
the first five months of 1932 it was
1,230,294 ounces.
Output of gold in Canada in May
was the largest on record, being
268,543 ounces, valued at $5,550,
At this rate Canada would produce $66,609,495 in a year, before
exchange compensation. Such a
rate would upset all calculations
hitherto made as to probable Canadian output.
Ore  Samples  Wanted
For Exhibition
With a view to keeping its ore
exhibit at the Canada Pacific Exhibition, held at Vancouver, up to
date, the B. C. Chamber of Mines
is again extending to prospectors
and mining men an invitation to
send in samples of ore, weighing
approximately 10 pounds, to'be included in this display. These samples may be sent, freight charges
nolleet, to the Chamber of Mines.
It is requested when specimens
are sent in that the following information be attached: Name of
nine or mineral olaim; class of ore
H'odu'ced; name of owner; name of
learest shipping point, and distance
therefrom; name of mining district
where located.
Utah Copper Co. Commences
Utah Copper Company reopened
ts great copper mine at Bingham
Canyon, Utah, two weeks ago, also
ts smelter at Garfield. This puts
some 1500 men at work after about
lour months' idleness for most of
more plentiful, and plenty of money
in circulation means that everyone
will eventually get some of it.
Canada's Trade  With The
World .
Canada's total foreign trade
during the fiscal year 1931-32,
amounted to $1,166,069,421, compared with $1,723,610,743 in 1930-
31, and $2,393,211,652 in 1929 30,
the decrease from 1930 31 being
32.4 per oont and from 1929-30,
51.3 per cent.
Imports as well as exports show
a decrease. The decrease in imports amounted to $328,109,791, or
36.2 per cent, compared with 1930-
31, and in exports to $229,462,531
or 28.1 per cent.

French River, Home of Wiley "Muskie," Will Soon Echo
Cries of Elated Anglers as They Battle Fresh Water Tiger
"^ow is the time for all good
■■■^ fishermen to prepare for
that summer trip" is an appropriate slogan for disciples of Isaac
Walton these balmy spring days.
A successful fishing trip depends
largely upon the careful selection
of location, tackle and even associates, for many a party has been
ruined by the last-minute introduction of a "wet blanket" to an
otherwise congenial collection of
One of the most interesting fishing streams in North America is
French River, Ontario, 216 miles
north of Toronto on the Canadian
Pacific Railway. This lordly river
is celebrated as the habitat of the
fighting muscalunge, one of the
gamest fish known; huge Great
Northern pike, pickerel, an abund
ance of small-mouth and large-
mouth black bass and other finny
prizes. To accommodate sportsmen
and their families, a fine bungalow
camp—a collection of individual
cabins centering around a main
clubhouse—has been erected on a
cliff overlooking the river. Here
the fisherman and his family can
"rough it in comfort," far from
the cares and annoyances of a
work-a-day world.
That big "muskies" are plentiful at French River is proven by
the fact that one recent summer
a monster muskie weighing 55
pounds was taken in the North
Channel at the mouth of the
Wolseley River. Also, not long
ago a party of Ohio sportsmen
caught, besides their daily limit of
bass, pike and pickerel, no less
than seventeen "muskies" ranging
from 10 to 38% lbs. In 1926 a "muskie" of 35 pounds weight, 50
inches long and 21 inches in girth
was taken in the main channel of
the French, one mile from the
bungalow camp.
The French River Bungalow
Camp will open June 15 and remain open until Sept. 15. Jack
Strathdee, its genial manager, is
an experienced outdoorsman whose
chief delight is coaching the uninitiated in the art of luring the
fish. French River also has a fine
9-hole golf course so that devotees
of the royal and ancient game who
are also fond of fishing need not
entirely forego the former sport
in favor of the latter.
Dr. Kiang Uses New Scientific Devices
Speaking to the weekly luncheon meeting of the Advertising Club of Montreal recently on "China Today"
with special reference to advertising practices, old and new, Dr. Kiang Kang-Hu, Professor of Chinese
Studies at McGill University, used a number of newly developed scientific devices, loaned by the Research
Products Department of the Northern Electric Company, Limited.
The inside photographs shown here were taken by the new photographic flash lamp which leaves no
smoke or odour and is therefore permitted for use in even the finest surroundings. And in order that the
speaker's voice might be easily audible without undue strain, a special small lapel type microphone recently
developed in the Bell Telephone Laboratories was provided for his use in conjunction with the Public Address
System (voice amplifiers). This microphone has been specially developed for use by lecturers who from the
nature of their address are obliged to turn away from then- audience and point to a blackboard or map
and would, therefore, not be facing the ordinary microphone.
