Six  Basketball Games
Played During The
The Orphans and Smelter took
the floor first on Friday, and pro-
vided some good basketball and
some merriment forthe fans. The
Orphans lost by the score of 8 to
6. Ellison 6 points and Ion 2
points were the successful marksmen for the Smelter, while Ridley
did all the scoring for the losers.
While these teams have consider
ably improved their play it is
obvious that they need some
coaching, and a little study of the
many rules would prevent' the too
frequent blowing of the whistle.
The second game of the evening
was between the Anyox High
School girls and "Pats." It was a
fast game resulting in a win for
the scholars by 10 points to 2.
Mildred Dresser starred with one
of the finest baskets seen in the
gym this season. Scorers: High
School, M. Dresser 4, M. Cloke-2,
G. Peters-4, Pats: Tess Gordon.
The final game between the
Sheiks and Micos was closely
contested throughout, and in the
last minute C. Dresser obtained
the wining points with an excellent

Changes Made in the Yukon

Ottawa, October 18 (Special to
the Herald). An important announcement regarding the sending
of mail to the Yukon districts has
just been made by the deputy postmaster general of Canada.
During the season of closed
navigation on the Yukon River,
which extends approximately from
the 1st of October to the 31st of
May, parcel post to the Yukon will
be suspended, except for the post
offices at Champagne, Carcross and
White Horse.
Attention    of    postmasters     is
drawn  to the fact that they   see
that mail is not accepted for other
points on the  river.     Matter addressed at parcel post rates intend
ed for other points in  the Yukon
may be addressed to White  Horse
and   the   addressees    may    make
arrangements with  the Transport
ation company operating between

27 per cent and there is decline of
16 per cent in the shipments to the
United Kingdom. This ratio in
eludes the first eight months of the
year and is according to figures
made public by the United States
Department of Commerce.
France May Import Canadian
Canada is casting around for new
markets for her wheat. Conversations have been opened, which
will probably lead to a revision of
the trade treaty between France
and Canada. France, hard hit by
United States tariffs, is anxious to
retain and, if possible, extend her
markets in Canada.
While official circles preserve the
strictest silence, it is understood
that France has made an approach
to the Canadian delegation at the
Imperial Conference with a view to
opening formal negotiations.
Canada has come to the fore as
the largest paper producer in the
world. More newsprint paper is

The hunting grounds of eastern
Canada abound with big game and
with wild fowl of every description
as a result of wise game laws and
conservation measures of the various provinces, according to A. 0
Seymour, general tourist e.gent,
Canadian Pacific Railway, who announces that opportunities for hunters in Quebec, Ontario and the
Maritime Provinces were never
better than In the present season.
Hon. C. A. Dunning, formerly
minister of Finance in the King
Administration, has accepted the
position of vice-president and general manager of "Lucerne ln Quebec," and will enter upon his new
duties at once. The appointment
was made public recently by E W
Beatty, as president of that organization. Directors of "Lucerne In
Quebec" make this announcement
with a great deal of satisfaction,
said Mr Beatty. in view of Mr. Dim-
ning's achievements in Canadian
affairs and his outstanding personal character.
Angus Hodgson, well known
Montreal big game hunter, back in
that city from Banff and the Canadian Rockies, reports that he shot
one moose, one elk, one black bear,
two deer and two Rocky Mountain
goats. He almost added a grlzzlle
to this total which however got
away after a six day chase. "Why
on earth more Canadians do not go
to Banff for their hunting beats
me," Mr. Hodgson declared, adding
that cost was reasonable and big
game abounded there.

Committee Investigate Text
School Books
Ottawa, November 1st. (Special
to the Herald). The universal use
of text books of Canadian origin in
public schools is being very strongly urged by the Ontario Associated
Boards of Trade and Chambers of
Commerce. The question of history text books has been studied
during the past year by the committee in charge and it has been
found that in some of the schools
in Canada the only history text
book is one written and published
in the United States and that apart
from isolated statements which
are unfair and misleading with
respect to Canada and the Empire,
the emphasis is naturally placed on
the United States.
It was stated by the Committee
that some books in use are properly
intended to develop pride in the
United States and patriotic allegiance to that country. Their whole
atmosphere is pervaded with the
nationalistic propaganda of the
United States.
Unveiling of the memorial to
Bliss Carman, noted Canadian poet,
took place at Predericton recently
and was broadcast all over the
Dominion by Canadian Pacific radio network. Sir George Poster,
well- known Canadian statesman,
spoke, expressing the sentiments of
all Canadians ln regretting the loss
of the great national bard.
A French-Canadian wedding of a
hundred years ago was one of the
high lights of Quebec's third Polk
Dance, Polk Song and Handicrafts
Festival which was given at the
Chateau Frontenac In that City October 16-18. Dances of Old and
New France and of the Metis from
the prairie provinces were among
the other features of the festival
whioh was conceded to have been
the most successful of the many
produced under the auspices of the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
The Nova Scotia apple crop from
the Annapolis Valley Is now valued
at $3,000,000 and the significance of
this figure will be realized when It
Is recalled that the return from last
year's croo was approximately
$1,000,000. Growers affirm there
never was a better year In the history of the Industry than the present.
In 1900 there were 11,906 acres
under tobacco ln Canada which
yielded 11,267,000 lbs. Preliminary
estimates for 1930 indicate an area
of over 40,000 acres and a production of around 35.000,000 pounds.
The greatest Increase is in Ontaris
which grew 30 per cent, of the crop
In 1900 and 75 per cent, this year.

First Photos Alaska-Montreal Telephone Link
The first telephonic conversation between Alaska and outside commercial lines took place a few days ago,
when C. H. McLean transmission Engineer of the British Columbia Telephone Co. and H. A. Robinson
Radio Engineer of the Northern Electric Co. Ltd., on board the Yacht "Belmont" in the harbour at Ketchikan, Alaska 900 miles north of Vancouver, B.C., put in a long distance call through Vancouver to Montreal
and in a few minutes were carrying on a two way conversation with Major James Hamilton, Vice President
and general manager B.C. Telephones and P. F. Sise, President Northern Electric Co. in the latter's office in
the new Telephone BIdg. The conversation was overheard by a group of prominent citizens at both ends of
the land lines which were "connected" to the Yacht by a new Radio Link developed entirely in Canada.

Marble Pool on Palatial Liner
Above or below decks there is lots
of fun on the Canadian Pacific's
new record-breaking Empress of

■hip on the Pacific, recently arrived

One favourite meeting place is
the white and green marble swimming pool, shown above with a happy
group enjoying its spacious tank.
The cautious miss in the corner
(left) who evidently does not believe
the assurances of the two already in
the tank that the water is warm
need not test it for one of the
features of the 26,000 ton liner is
that the golden dolphin seen in the
background spouts warm or cool
water as desired. One hundred and
sixty tons of water are needed to
fill the tank.
Surrounded by dressing rooms,
showers, and electric baths, the
swimming pool has its own cafe with
rubber-cushioned chairs where attendants serve warming drinks with
Oriental impassivity.

Everyone agrees that it would be a fine
thing to induce some large industry to build
a plant in British Columbia. Some communities would be willing to bonus such an undertaking, give it a1' free site, or exempt it
from local taxes. But it is not bonuses that

every time you make a purchase and you will
be doing your share.

with prosperous conditions.

carefully the source of the coal which fills their bins this
