Planning For Big Day
Dominion Day-
Celebration
Plans are being rushed to completion by the Anyox Community
League, for the carrying out of a
big programme of sporting events
on Dominion Day, Wednesday,
July 1st.
It is proposed to hold another
children's parade of decorated
floats, doll buggies, bicycles, scooters, etc. Now is the time to make
plans for the decoration. Dominion Day will soon be here. And
by-the-way a prize will also be
given for the best decorated automobile and also for the best comic
group in the parade.
Marathon races, will, as in former years, be held during the morning, and during the afternoon, field
sports of all kinds for both young
and old will be carried out.
"The end of a perfect day" dance
will be held at the Gymnasium
under the auspices of the Anyox
Community League, where the best
of everything will be provided for
your happiness.
Here is a splendid opportunity
for everyone to show their patriotism for this great and glorious
Dominion. Get behind the League
and boost and assist their efforts
in every possible manner.
Let us make this year's celebration the best possible.
Football Benefit Dance
Was Great Success
Attended by a big crowd, the
dance held at the Mine Hall on
Wednesday the 10th for the bene
fit of injured players was in every
way a stiooess. The committee in
charge are to be congratulated on
the excellent arrangements made
for the enjoyment of those present.
For the excellent supper provided
Mrs. E. C. Bklof and Miss Helen
Calderoni were responsible. These
ladies worked untiringly for this
important part of tho affair, and
deserve great oredit for their
efforts. The music was supplied
by the New Victor Orchestra, who
surpassed themselves on this
occasion. It is expected that a
good sum will be realized as a
result of the generous response to
this appeal.
There was an exciting scrimmage in the circulartwostep, the
game having to be stopped on
account of rushing tactios. Many
of the players on both sides were
Banalized for "holding," but the
referee was somewhat lenient in
jjjiis regard. Contrary to the rules
8»me of the fairer sex from the
mine turned out in smart sailor-
bC-y attire, but were permitted to
jBtity-.and take part in the game.
jJQj 4 couple from the Beach suffered
a heavy fall, due to the slippery
state of the ground, but no first-
aid was necessary. After an over
time period, in which the play
waxed fast and furious, the game
ended in an even score, with no
one injured, everybody happy, and
many requests for a similar fixture
later on. Jack Evans was the
capable and satisfactory referee.
Alice Arm Gardeners Have
Difficult Problem
Alice Arm gardeners are experiencing an uphill fight this summer
in their efforts to raise enough
vegetables to carry them over the
hard winter that is freely predicted.
In addition to their anxiety of
watching the tender young plants
burst through the ground full of
promise for next year's stews, and
the additional anxiety of keeping
these young mulligan pot aspirants
free from weeds, they are confronted with a cut worm epidemic.
Despite depletion of numbers,
this army of unwelcome visitors
marches steadily on, cutting everything from chickweed to potatoes.
Hunting cut worms has become
the chief occupation of Alice Arm
gardeners, and bent backs accompanied by muffled curses are sure
signs that the cultivator of a garden
plot is engaged in slaughtering
these unwelcome visitors.
Sawmill Building Demolished
The sawmill building, which has
been one of the landmarks of Alice
Arm for a number of years is being
demolished, Previous to his departure for the south Mr. Al. Falconer
sold the building to Mr. Gus Anderson, who is tearing it down and
storing the lumber for future use.

The P.T.A. wish to thank all
those who assisted to make the
tournament so enjoyable and a
success in every way.
Ladder Games Popular Anyox
Tennis4 Courts
Further ladder games were play
ed during the week and great
progress was made in the men's
section where some excellent games
were witnessed. More interest is
being shown in the ladies' section
now, and the games played this
week provided some good tennis.
In view of possible inter-club
play later on in the season, ladder
series are proposed for Men's
doubles, Ladies' doubles and Mixed
doubles. These should prove popular to the majority of the tennis
players.
Anyox Athletes Training For
Dominion Day
The pick of the Anyox athletes
will be seen in the marathon and
field sports on July ,1st. It is reported that a number have already
commenced intensive training and
others are starting immediately.
Competition is expected to be keen
this year, and some thrilling contests are expected by the fans in
close touch with events.
Huge Crowd Enjoy Larcom Island Picnic
Working on a sohedule with
methodical precision and with the
help of the majority of the Councillors, the Community League
carried out a wonderful day of
holiday making at Larcom Island
on Sunday. No deviation was
made from the schedule and everybody co-operated to ensure no hitch
or mishap occurring. The excursionists were prompt and enabled
the League to carry out their
safety regulations by meeting at
the dock instead of crowding on to
the float.
It was a glorious day and the
"Granby" made a number of trips
to carry almost 600 people over to
the Picnio Ground. The trippers
found the swimming in tbe sea and
lake, hiking through the bush, aud
basking in the sunshine delightful.
Little > parties could be spotted!
almost everywhere with the excur
sionists enjoying outdoor meals
amid suoh pleasant surroundings.
Everyone returned to town tanned
by the sun and happy after a very
enjoyable time. No doubt there
will be even bigger crowds at the
next picnio sponsored by the enterprising League.
New Officers Elected Alice
Arm Athletic Association
Eagle Carries Off Kid Goat
While on the top of the Glaoier
at the rear of the Smelter last
week-end, J. A. D. Stewart and
Harry Ward saw an eagle flying
low with a goat in its talons.
The eagle flew a short distance and
dropped the kid down the side of
the glaoier oreek.
The Anyox Golf Club will hold a
Men's Singles Tournament tomorrow (Sunday). 18 holes medal

A general meeting of the Alice
Arm Athletic Association was held
in the Club House on Wednesday
June 10th., when considerable
business was discussed.
Mr. J. Trinder tendered his res
ignation as president, and Mr.  A
D. Yorke was appointed to fill the
vacancy.   The office of Vice-Presi
dent was also vacant, Mr. Falconer
having left town.    Mr. Ted Kergin

Celts Prove Victorious
Over Smelter 3 Goals
To 1
One of the best football games
this season was played on Thursday, June 4th, between the Celts'
and Smelter teams before a good
crowd of fans. Play was fast and
open, both teams excelling in
attack and defence. The Smelter
had the advantage of the slope in
the first half and pressed hard on
the Celts goal area. Jack Buntain
opened the score for the "Red and
Whites" with a smart drive which
gave Arthur Horner, who was
substituting for Musser, no chance.
Following the interval the Celts
attacked continuously and combined splendidly, passing in quick
accurate fashion. A neat pass by
Doug. MacConnachie enabled
Jimmy Elliot to plaoe the ball out
of Hunter's reach and bring the
soores level. Shortly afterwards
Sparky" Johnston, who was on
top of his form gave a smart
pass to Doug. MacConnachie who
had no difficulty in netting.
The Smelter bucked up after
this reverse and tried hard to soore.
Their excellent midfield work was
not turned to advantage, Ellison
twice missing easy chances of
scoring. A period of pretty dribbling was rounded off by Doug.
MacConnachie netting with a fast
shot that touched John Ion and
thus gave the Celts league points
by the margin of 3 goals to 1.
This game put the Celts at the
top of the league with 8 points,
Mine second and Smelter third.
The football continues to improve
and the interest grows every game.
Sale of Home Work Very

The Sale of Fanoy Work, Home

P. O'Brien, Fancy Work and Novelties. The Conveners were Mrs,
J. Wynne and Mrs. C. W Ruck
haber who wish to express on behalf of the Committee, their thanks
to all those who helped to mako

Anyox Miner Meets Death
Steve Franovioh, miner, met his
death yesterday afternoon, Thursday, in the No. 7A stope at the
Hidden Creek mine. His death
was caused by a fall of rock. Deceased was 40 years of age and
was a native of Jugoslavia, where
la wife and two ohildren reside.
Fishing Parties Popular Dur-
ing Week End
Two fishing parties made trips
to Trout Lake during the weekend.
Although the fishing was not so
exciting, the hike from the beach at
Perry Bay along the winding trail
among the green timber and along
the side of the creek was enjoyed.
The rain dampened the campers
during Saturday night, but the
boys were up early on Sunday
to enjoy trips along the lake, endeavoring to hook the odd salmon.
The sun soon came out to make
the trip worth while. The outdoor
exercise amid such pleasant snr
foundings as at Trout Lake gave
the campers healthy appetites by
the time they returned to camp.
One of the members of the party
fell in the lake, presumably to investigate the whereabouts of the
"wacking great" fish reputed to be
there, and not satisfied with falling
in once had to repeat the performance. The ducking, however, did
not dampen his ardour and he
soon dried out by the camp fire. ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD, Friday, June 12,  1931

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
Higher taxes for this year, both
Dominion and Provincial, are inevitable. The budgets of both
parliaments show a deficit, and
which must be made good. But
what is worrying most people is
the ability to pay, and it will probably cause considerable concern to
the governments before the deficits
are made good. A government
can no doubt increase taxes at will,
but whether it will be able to collect them is another matter. If the
people do not possess the money
to pay, an increase of taxation is
useless. There are hundreds of
thousands of people in Canada
living a hand-to-mouth existence.
Increased taxes mean that they are
forced to buy less. This naturally
decreases the demand for goods
and more men are thrown out of
work because of over-production,
History has invariably shown that
the least taxed country is the most
prosperous. If money is scarce
among the workers, hard times are
inevitable. It is admitted by any
fair minded person that both the
Dominion and Provincial governments were caught unawares in the
present world wide depression,
especially the former, who assumed office as the prosperous period
of the past decade was breaking
up. There are other countries in
a far worse financial position than
Canada. This, however, is poor
consolation to the Canadian tax
payer, but it illustrates the point
that the magnitude of the present
depression was a surprise not only
to Canada, but to the whole
world. It is easy for anyone to
say what should have been done
to avert mistakes after an affair has
happened. If politicians possessed
the ability.of reading the future, all
would probably be well today, but
unluckily they hav'nt. If good
judgement is used and taxation
kept at a level where everyone can
pay their share without undue
hardship, Canada will no doubt
be among the first nations of
the world to emerge from the
meshes of the depression. But if
we are called upon to pay taxes
which are beyond our means then
the present financial morass will
become deeper.
Sherritt-Gordon    May
Suspend Operations
Toronto—Shareholders of Slier
fitt Gordon Mines Ltd. were informed by President Halstead
Lindsley at the annual meeting
that operation of the oue concen
trator unit would be continued,
provided the price of copper did
not drop below 9 cents per pound.
Mr. Lindsley made it clear that it
was all a question of copper. "If
the price of copper goes to 7 or 6
cents a pound, we will probably
have to call a meeting of directors
to consider action," he remarked
"As long as it holds around 9 cents
we can continue to operate, although the profit is practically
negligible."
President Lindsley told shareholders that although the property
had been brought into production
at a time when copper was around
its lowest price iu history, the mill
had come in with little trouble and
that extraction and grade was
belter than expected. In keeping
on production, he stated that a
town is being supported and nearly
1000 person directly and indirectly
are being aided. All the cpmpany
officials hope for is an improvement
in the price of copper.
Number of Employers In B.C.
Shows Increase
The Workmen's Compensation
Board report for 1930 just issued
shows that the payroll of the firms
covered by its activities reached
their highest point in 1929 with
approximately $190,000,000 paid
out in salaries and wages. For
1930 the payrolls will not be complete for some months, but available figures indicate the total will
he about $180,000,000. In spite of
the fall in wages there was an increase in the number of employers
which stood at 8,958 at the end of
1930 as against 8,888 in 1929.
During 1930, 1,263 new employers
commenced operations .and 173
firms renewed their activities.
"But, waiter, if this is spring
chicken, where is the wishbone?"
"It was too young to wish, sir."
Customer (watching butcher cut
off a steak): "Hey! You're giving
me a big piece of bone."
Butcher: No, I'm not. You're
paying for it."
Copper Companies Must
Further Curtail
Output
New York—Further curtailment
of the world's electrolytic copper
output will result from the steady
decline in the price of the metal in
the last month to the record low
level of 8| cents a pound, according
to several copper company executives.
The recent decline in the price
of copper has been caused by partial ineffectiveness of the program
under which world copper pro
dticers agreed last November to
curtail their output 15 per cent.,
the executives say. While most
companies have curtailed tlieir output in accordance with the program, the effectiveness of the plan
has been impaired by relatively
high production of other mines, it
was said. Asa result, production
last month in North and South
America made a total of 100.501
tons, compared with 112,646 last
November, representing a reduction of only 11 per oent in five
months whereas a reduction of 15
per cent had been expeoted.
The recent slump in the prioe of
copper is expected to result in the
closing of some of the moderately
high cost mines which are still in
operation. Few producers can sell
copper at a profit at the current
price, copper authorities say. With
each reduction in the price, there is
less incentive for high cost producers to continue to deplete their
metal reserves by maintaining
operations.
The recent decline in the price
of copper was intensified by the
publication of production figures
for April, which showed that the
average daily output for the month
in North and South America was
3,350 tons, compared with 3,292
in March, and 3.566 tons in February- The increased daily output,
coupled with the decline of 23,000
in shipments, resulted in an increase of 13,716 tons in stocks of
refined copper iii April. This was
the first increase reported in stocks
of copper since the plan for reducing world production by 15 per
cent was put into effect last
November.

June is now well advanced and
no official statement has yet been
made either by the government or
the heads of the big railways, regarding the Pacific outlet of the
Peace River railway. It is too
bad to hold the people of Stewart,
Prince Rupert and Vancouver in
suspense for such a long period.
Each town is building castles in
the air in connection with the outlet, some of which are going to
tumble when the decision reached
is given publicity. The impression is gaining in the north
that no one is in a hurry to build a
railway at the present time, and if
such is the case, we cannot look
for a statement as to where it will
eventually terminate on the coast.
In the meantime the castle building
is going rapidly ahead.

ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HERALD, Friday, June 12,  1931
Bright  Lights of The
General Depression
British Columbia goes on growing, regardless of depressions.
There are more than 2000 more
telephones in service for the British Columbia Telephone Company
and its affiliated companies in B.C.
at May 1, 1931, than at the same
time last year. Motor vehiole
registrations show no declines.
There are at least 10,000 more
people in Vancouver this year than
in 1930.
Tourist traffic this year is larger
than last year. Grain trade shows
an increase.
When lower commodity prices
are taken into account, bank clearing reflect at least as good a volume
of general business in Vancouver
this year as last.
Building permits iu Vancouver
to date this year are more than
$1,120,000 in excess of those
awarded in the like period of 1930.
There are plenty of blaok spots
on the economic picture in Western
Canada, so it is quite in order thus
to draw attention to some of the
bright ones.—The Financial News.
Canada's total catch of sea fish
in 1930 amounted to 1,022,022,200
lbs. and had a landed value to the
fishermen of approximately $23,-
621,000.

Life's Work Is Hobby, Too
Mechanics are a hobby as well
as the life's work of Henry
Blane Bowen, chief of motive
power and rolling stock, Canadian Pacific Railway, who has
an up-to-date machine shop in
the basement of his Montreal
home. Here he has invented a
number of tools now in use
throughout the vast shop system of the company and built
a series of model stationary
and marine engines, to the
great delight of his three sons.
He came into particular prominence recentlyasthe builder
of the C.P.R.'s new  giant,
"8000" type, multi-pressure
locomotive, the biggest and
most powerful of its
kind in the world
and unique on
the American
continent,
destined   for
heavy duty
in the
Rocky
Mountains.
The pic-

Mr. Bow-

He prides
himcelf
that it is
the most complete private plant in
Montreal. Inset, Mr. Bowen is
seen operating a milling-machine,
which ne built with his own hands.
The model marine engine, shown
lower right, Is the latest product of the hobby-shop. Although it is only four inches high and could almost
be housed in a cigar box, it is complete in the minutest detail and can develop 4000 revolutions a minute.
It offers an interesting contrast when considered in comparison with the newest mammoth locomotive.
Mr. Bowen built them both.

Miss Davis expressed herself as
delighted with the results obtained
with the picturization of "It's a
Wise Child," and previous reviewers have been especially enthusiastic about the star's work in this
photoplay. The picture was adapted from one of the most successful
of recent New York stage hits, a
David Belasco production, which
ran for a year on Broadway, and
was equally popular on tour.
In "It's a Wise Child" Miss
Davies is said to have a part which
fits her even better than her successful roles in "Not So Dumb" and
"The Bachelor Father. The story
concerns the building of a molehill
into a mountain through the devastating effects of small town gossip.
