Second Half of Bowling
League Schedule
Nears Close
Bowling League games are
being rushed as the end of the
season approaches, and there is
little to choose between some of the
teams competing. McColl's team
came into the limelight in their
game with the Bulls of the Woods,
winning all three games.
Bulls' players were: J. Smith, S.
Down, Len Wenerstrom, J. J. Cody.
McColls: J. Dixon, W. Hallcrow,
J. McColl.
Only by a narrow margin did the
Bantams triumph over the formidable Grinders, winning two of the
three games.
Grinders' team:   D. Cavalier, F.
Whitehouse,     M.     Webber,     L.
! McKay. Bantams' team; A. Horner,
A.    Wright,   H.  Johnston,  W.J.
The Grinders, playing in a smooth
land polished style,  steadily wore
[down  McColl's   quartet,   winning
(three games.    McColls were minus
|H.    Hallcrow   and  substituted J.
[Moffat.   The Grinders played the
j same teams as against the Bantams.
Armed  with blue prints and pat-
! terns,  the  Foundry  ''cast" themselves into the fray with the docile
Elks,  but alas! only to have everything come out wrong.   The Ant-
lered Herd won two games.
Foundry team: W. Jones, T.
Buchanan, F. Whitehouse, J. Hanson, H. Ward. Elks: H. Selfe,
S. Armstrong, F. Mattix, J. Hutchinson.
The Government quintet, playing
against the Grinders, suffered an
overwhelming defeat, as the lathe-
men won all three games. Civil
Service team: F. F. Brown, E. G.
Browp, S. Peters, E. R. Oatman.
Grinders: D. Cavalier, F. White-
house, T. Stretton, L. McKay.
Only three or four games remain
to be played to complete the schedule.
Boy Scouts Busy Preparing
Camp Site
With the idea of having a camping place for week-ends and holidays, the Anyox Boy Scouts are
cleaning up a camp-site at Isaac
Creek. The place is easy of access,
and many enjoyable days and evenings can thus be spent during summer. Scoutmaster Gale is keeping
the boys in good training, and purposes giving them plenty to do this
Last Card Party Alice Arm
Athletic Association Held
On Saturday
The last of a series of card parties
held every two weeks during the
winter months by the Alice Arm
Athletic Association Was held on
Saturday evening at the Club House.
A large number attended and an
enjoyable evening was spent. The

Arm Hotel on Saturday April 30th.
Softball May Become Popular
This Summer
Team entries for the game of
Softball are now being received.
Softball is a game that anyone can
play, lack of experience being no
handicap. Softball is good fun and
a pleasant recreation, and no personal expense is necessary, nor are
uniforms called for. Nine players
compose a team. Three fields of
play are possible: The Mine, the
Ballground, the Flats. Applications are invited from Plant Departments, Lodges, Churches, etc., to
enter teams in the League. In two
or three weeks' time the grounds
will be fit to play on, and in the
meantime George Allen will be glad
to hear from you and give you details of proposed plans.
J. Peacock, Tony Calfa, and Pete
Anderson left on Monday for Dog
Creek, north of Vanderhoof. They
hold placer claims on this creek and
plan to spend the summer developing their properties.
J. Nick, who has spent the winter
at Bowman Lakes, paid a short
visit to town during the wjek.
H. F. Kergin, M. L. A. who has
spent the past two and a half months
at Victoria, attending the sitting of
the Provincial Legislature, arrived
home on Thursday.
Rev. W. B. Jennings will conduct
Evening Service at the Anglican
Church tomorrow evening at 7:30
p.m. Communion Service will be
held at 10 a. m. and Sunday School
at 11 a.m.
The two brass altar vases recently donated to St. Michael's Church
by the Ladies' Auxiliary, have been
stolen. Will those who removed
them replace at once before any
action is taken for their recovery.
Elks' Old Time Dance Was
A good number attended the Old
Time Dance given by the Elks
on Friday the 15th. This event
was arranged in response to numerous requests, and the various old-
time numbers given were much
appreciated. Such dances as the
Military two-step, the Valeta waltz,
Highland schottische, present very
little    difficulty    to    those    who
enter into the spirit of the occasion.
The function easily sustained the
reputation of the Brother Bills for
creating a friendly and congenial

Sports For Everyone At
Anyox This Summer
There will be no lack of sports
for the people of Anyox during the
coming season, as a variety of
tastes will be catered to. Do you
like tennis? There are three tennis
courts available the A. C. L. courts
at the Beach, the Hidden Creek-
Court at the Flats and the Mine
Fond of golf? Try golf at the
most unique golf-course we know
of—built on a slag pile with
"greens" of sand. You'll enjoy
golf on this really fine course.
Would you like to play softball?
A league is being formed, and the
possibilities are that a great many
will follow this healthful sport.
How about football? This will
go stronger than ever if those interested will go after it energetically.
There are sufficient football players

Britannia Mine Again
Reduces Output
In conformity with the understanding reached at the recent con-
ference'of copper producers in New
York with respect to the further
curtailment of production, the scale
of operations at the Britannia has
been again reduced. This has entailed much careful planning on the
part of the management to minim
ise to the utmost the distressful
consequences of these restrictions
in relation to employment. The
problem, we understand, has been
met, so far as it can be, by retain
ing the maximum number of em
ployees on the pay-roll, and
apportioning work in such a manner
as to'make special provision for the
more necessitous. The Howe
Sound Company has reduced its
dividend (which presumably is now
being drawn from surplus) from 50
cents to 25 cents quarterly.—The
Surprise Party   Given
To Ted Kergin On
21st. Birthday
A very enjoyable party was held
on Friday evening the 15th. at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. H.F, Kergin
in honor of the 21st. birthday of
their only son Ted. The auspicious
occasion of the coming of age of
one of the native sons of northern
B. C. could not be allowed to pass
unnoticed by the residents of Alice
Arm, and a surprise party was arranged for Ted. Thirty-eight people
were present, and an evening full of
merriment and jollity was enjoyed
The evening was spent in card
playing, dancing and singing. The
music being furnished by the Alice
Arm orchestra. An excellent supper was provided, after which dancing was resumed and carried on
into the early hours of Saturday
The evening was full of surprises
for the young host, including a collective spanking from the ladies,
and being tossed to the ceiling on
the outstretched hands of the men.
„■ Ted was the., .recipient-af..many
handsome presents, including a set
of mahogany bgck military brushes
and comb from those present. In
making the presentation, H. Fowler gave Ted a few words of advice.
In replying, Ted voiced his appreciation of the gift and thanked all
those present for their generosity
and good wishes.
Ted Kergin is a true native son
of Northern B. C. being born at
Stewart twenty-one years ago, and
his many friends wish him the best
of good luck now that he has
attained manhood.
Functions arranged by the ladies
of the Catholic Church are always
enjoyable—and they are holding one
on Friday, April 22nd. This will
take the form of a Bridge and
Whist Party, and the cards will
commence at 8 o'clock.

Golf Course Opens With
The official opening of the Anyox
Golf season was celebrated on Sunday the 17th, when a mixed two-
ball foursome tournament and a
Men's Singles tournament were
played. The former provided some
splendid competition, no less than
29 couples taking part.
Mrs. Wenerstrom and Mr. H.
Cathro were the winners with a net
score of 80, and close behind them
were Mrs. Roy and Mr. M. J. Sheen
with a total of 84. In the Men's
Singles Tournament a special prize
was offered, and this match resulted in a tie between J. A. D. Stewart
and Alex Crerar, each with a net
score or 75. The play-off will take
place at an early date. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD, Saturday, April 23,  1932

The demand that the rich
people of Canada be called upon
to pay a larger proportion of taxes
during the country's financial distress, is steadily becoming louder.
And why shouldn't those that can
well afford it pay more? As Miss
Agnes McPhail recently said in
the House of Commons during the
budget debate: "Collect the taxes
where the money is." If the
wealthy men of Canada were as
patriotic as they would have us
believe, they would not wait to be
forced to aid their country in a
time of distress, but would willingly donate a part of their huge fortunes for the common good.
Instead of assisting in helping to
relieve the present tremendous
financial strain, it would appear as
though they are taking advantage
of their country's difficulties in d&
manding 6 1 -2 and 7 per cent on
recently issued government bonds.
This rate of interest is ruinous and
is a hold-up, and in order to pay
it, will mean high taxes for years
and years to come. It is high
time that the wealthy class realized
that in the end the will of the
masses prevail. History has repeatedly shown us this. If they
persist in their present methods,
they will save the government of
Soviet Russia a lot of money in
creating Canadian Reds.
Clean up the refuse around the
hour.e is now the slogan in every
hamlet, town and city in the
Dominion, and this little piece of
advice is also given in these columns to our readers of Anyox and
Alice Arm. There is hardly
anything more offensive to the eyes
than the old piles of rubbish that
has been allowed to accumulate
during the long winter months.
Clean up the back yard; also the
front yard, and then plant flowers
wherever possible. A clean and
well kept yard adds 100 per cent,
to the appearance of a house, and
even in these hard times it is possible for almost everyone to purchase a few packets of flower
North Ridings Little Affected
By Redistribution
Under the provincial Redistribution Bill, which was passed by the
Legislature at Victoria recently, no
change whatever is made in the
boundaries of Atlin and Prince
Rupert ridings.
The present Fort George riding
drop's a large northern area to the
Peace River seat, which will take
in all of the northeastern corner of
the province, but takes in Red Pass
and some parts of Salmon Arm.
Skeena loses Telkwa to Omineca.
These are the only changes in the
northern constituencies.
Exports   of   Canadian
Refined Copper
The preliminary report of the
mineral production of Canada for
1931, which lias just been released
by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics gives some interesting figures
in regard to production and export
of Canadian copper. Extracts are
as follows:
Copper is produced in Quebec,
Ontario, Manitoba and British
Columbia. Manitoba was the only
province to register an increase.
In 1930 the Hudson Bay Smelter
at Flin Flon, Manitoba, began
operations late in the fall, but in
1931 it ran continuously and the
result is reflected in the rise in
value of the mineral output of the
A rather interesting feature in
the matter of Canadian copper
exports is worthy of notice. In
1930 exports of copper in ore and
matte totalled 74,804,600 pounds,
and in 1931 this figure dropped to
48,761,200 pounds. Exports or
blister copper in 1930 amounted to
147,521.400 pounds, and in 1931
this had decreased to 37.697,700
pounds. But Canada now has two
refineries, one at Copper Cliff and
the other at Montreal East, and
refined copper exports jumped
from 6.959,200 pounds in 1930 to
105,208,200 pounds in 1931, or in
other words Canada is refining a
large part of the domestic copper

Western States Seek Tariff
On Copper
Governors   of    Western   states
have addressed a memorial to Con-
gress at Washington asking for a
protective tariff to prevent African
and South' American competition
with American copper mines. Arizona operators are said to be uniformly in favor of such a tariff, but
sentiment had not crystallized in
Utah, Nevada, Montana or Alasl a.
Many operators express doubt that
a tariff on copper would prove
effective, owing to world-wide conditions.

Marie Dressier, aided and abetted
by Polly Moran, romps through
screamingly comical situations,
new Metro-Goldwyn'Meyer picture
is a hilarious story of Marie as a
feminine candidate for mayor, with
the agile Polly as her campaign
manager. She harangues the
women's votes, conducts torchlight
processions, handles political rallies,
and calls out the women of the town
on a strike against their husbands.
A little drama of the underworld
runs through the picture, and a
notable cast appears: William
Bakewell, Karen Morley, Rcsco
Ates, John Miljan, Joan Marsh and
others. A real scream right through.
Paul   Lukas,   Charlie   Ruggles,

A paramount Picture—an intimate heart-warming play for everyone
who has ever been in love, or
expects to be. It's natural, real,
charming. Lovable' Paul Lukas
appears in his first big, sympathetic role. As the chivalrous and corn-
lover, he is the man whom all women called "The Beloved Bachelor.''
Tender as a mother's heart: happy
child's song; real as your own pulse.
Paul outguesses all the women of
wealth who try to snare him and
falls for the innocent girl-charms of
a beautiful orphaned waif. Dorothy
Jordan is the beautiful young ward.
Charlie Ruggles is seen and heard
in an uproarious comedy part.
Canadian National Railways
Cut Expenditures
Several new records were established by the Canadian National
Railways in 1931. On maintenance expenditures, $34,796,000
was spent, as compared with
$39,777,567 in 1930. Maintenance of equipment cost $38,260,
000 compared with $43,091,329 in
1930, and transportation expenses
were $81,985,000, a reduction of
$14,120,000 from the previous year.
The western region set a new
record in net train loads. Each
region established new records in
train speeds and gross ton miles
per train hour.
Noranda Doubles  Gold
Discoveries by Noranda of a
large tonnage of new ore carrying
good gold values will enable the
oompany to carry on the same
policy of reduced oopper production for some considerable period,
stated James Murdoek, president,
in the annual report. He added
that this gave the board confidence
that the company will be able to
operate with reasonable profit during the period of re adjustment in
the copper market.
The company doubled its gold
output in 1931, and ore reserves
increasod 34 per oent. The balance
sheet shows an improvement in
working capital and very low inventories on hand of refined and
blister copper.
