Mine   Minstrels   Hold
Enjoyable Banquet
On Monday March 5th. a banquet was held by the members oi]
the Mine Minstrel Troop who entertained their lady friends. Fifty
people sat down to an enjoyable
repast, during which several members of the troop gave songs from
the repertoire of.the shows held
The banquet was a fitting conclusion to the recent activities of
the Mine Minstrels, two successful
performances having been given
one at the Beach and one at the
Mine. In a neat after-dinner
speech Mr- T. H. Bamforth, director
of the troop, voiced the hope that
the splendid company which had
| been formed would continue as a
concert aggregation. Mr. Ed.
Blundell assistant director, gave
high praise to the work of his colleagues and stated that in giving
some measure of enjoyment to the
people of the community, they were
doing a work whioh was well
worth while.
Echoes Of The Mine Minstrel
In our report of the Mine Chrysanthemum Minstrel show, we
failed to state that Mrs. C. Eklof
deserved a good deal of praise for
her splendid work in making up
the various performers. This "behind the scenes" job, whioh took up
much time and effort, was cheerfully undertaken by Mrs. Eklof.
We also omitted to mention J.
Coggins as interlocutor. He was
the right man in the right plaoe,
unobtrusive and yet holding the
show together effectively. Spiro
Gurvich also worked hard in connection with the general arrangements.

Mine  Minstrel   Coons
Hold Successful
Different in every way from the
regular run of social affairs, the
dance held at the Mine Hall on
Monday the 5th. was unique and
entertaining. It had all the enjoyment for which the Mine Dances
are noted. For the benefit of people who had been unable to attend
the recent shows several numbers
were repeated, the items being sung
and played as for dancing. The
entire troop gave its famous "Alexander's- Rag-time Band," Mr.
Bamforth excelling himself as soloist and leader.
The pieoe-de-resistance of the
evening was a cakewalk contest,
in which six couples took part; viz,
J. Dobbie and Edna Owen, Eddie
Phillips and Mrs. Waterland, F.
Garland and P. Arscott, Ed. Blundell and Frances Wilkinson, Geo.
Dyer and C. Desjardins, J. Smathers and Mrs. Eklof. The contest was
deoided by popular vote, Miss Desjardins and her rustio escort securing the handsome, three-tier cake-.-
The Revellers supplied splendid
music for the dancing and most
enjoyable refreshments were served.

Of A. C. L.
The Sun Life Assurance
Company of Canada
Behind the imposing figures which
mark the annual reports of our
great life insurance companies lie
significant facts which may escape
the notice of the casual reader.
None of our great institutions are
more cosmopolitan in character
than thse concerned with insuring
people's lives. Their business extends to a wide class of people. It
is broadly based, the great majority
of insured being those of limited
income and of widely diversified
occupations. The investments of
insurance companies are equally diversified, both occupationally and
territorially, and serve to stimulate
business and provide employment.
One cannot conceive of a curtailment of the functions of these companies that would not profoundly
and adversely affect the whole social structure.
A good illustration of this is revealed in the sixty-third report of
the Sun Life Assurance Company
of Canada printed on another page.
Here is an organization that, last
year, paid out $100,000,000 in benefits of various kinds to its policyholders and their dependents.
Thousands received such payments
last year from this Company, neither as doles nor charity but as a right.
Other life insurance companies
made similar payments in varying
degree. In these times when the
most burning question of the day is
how to preserve our economic equilibrium, often accomplished only by
giving from those who have to those
who have not, the fact just cited is
a luminous example of how these
insurance companies have evolved
a systematic, safe and scientific
way whereby a man may provide,
at little inconvenience, during his
productive period, and without forfeiting his self-respect, for the lean
years ahead.
There are other features in the
report well worthy of note, among
them the huge sum of two and three
quarter billions of dollars of assurances now in force and which will
be payable to the insured in this
generation. The increase in assets
of over $55,000,000 and of insurances in force of over $300,000,000
during the last four trying years, is
another notable achievement. The
foundations of our great life insurance companies, plainly, have been
laid so soundly and securely that
they are impervious even to the
strain of a depression, which not all
institutions have been able to withstand.
Over fifty persons were present
at the annual meeting of the Mine
Branch of the A. C. L., held in the
Mine Hall on Monday, February 26
Mr. J. D. Ferguson, chairman of
the retiring Council, presided, and
there were also present Councillors
T. M. Waterland, W. Forshaw, N.
Cokac, and R. L. Healy. The
minutes of the preceding annual
meeting were read and confirmed.
The chairman submitted the report
of the Council, which covered all
the important activities of the
Branch during the past year. The
secretary, Mr. V. S. McRae, presented the financial report covering
the year's fiscal operations. It was
shown that finances were in a much
healthier condition than in the pre>
ceding year. There had been more
activity than in any previous year
in the life of the Mine Branch.
Mine Social Functions Were
Well Supported
Extracts from the report of the
chairman at the annual meeting of
the Mine Branch, A. C. L., showed
that during the past year, nine
dances, card parties etc. had been
held at the Mine, and that these
had been greatly appreciated. Reference was made to the Sports
Supper held last fall, which had
been greatly enjoyed by all those
concerned. The enterprises of the
Mine Minstrel Troop, which had
recently given two most successful
shows, received special comment in
the report. It was also shown that
the Christmas Dance and Children's
Parties were outstanding functions.
Mine Branch Leads In Sports
One football, two baseball and
two basketball teams had been
sponsored by the Mine Branch of
the A. C. L. during the past year.
Each of these teams had made a
splendid showing in competitive
play during the season. The Branch
had also co-operated with the Beach
in putting on two very successful
Fight Cards. The Tennis Club had
also an encouraging season, operat
ing under the sponsorship of the
A. C. L.
"Does your husband confide his

"Barren Grounds" as applied to
the far northern plains of Canada is
a misleading and Inappropriate
name, for the reason that these
tracts are far from barren. In most
places the ground is well covered,
often by an even luxuriant vegetation. Also beautiful blue lupines
cover acres of the Arctic tundra
every summer, in addition to deep
carpets of reindeer moss and meadows of blue-joint grass.
Nature is not nearly so cruel as
she is pleasant. The word "Arctic"
is hardly one to describe dazzling
sunshine, however, along with
rapid growth in vegetation.

Sun Life Assurance Company
of Canada
THE report of the Company for 1933 is one of consistent and constructive progress.
Its achievements enhance the impressive record of public service it has rendered
daring the sixty-three years of its existence.
In 1933, as in the preceding three years, people generally experienced exceptional anxiety,
the result of incomes being either impaired or entirely cut off. At such a time the unfailing aid and security of life insurance proved of very great value.
In this service the Sun Life Company bore a worthy share. During the year it paid out
(exclusive of policy loans) nearly $100,000,000 to policyholders and beneficiaries. Similarly, during the four years of depression it has paid out over $380,000,000.
Notwithstanding these substantial payments, the Company, during the same four-year
period, increased its assets by $55,000,000—its insurances in force by over $307,000,000.
