I Badminton Handicap
Tournament Held
An interesting Handicap Tournament was held at the Gymnasium
on Thursday, November 19th, a
good number of players taking
part. On Court 1 Mrs. T. Stretton
and Mr. S. Peters were the winners,
and on Court 2 Miss Nettie Thomson and Mr. W. Adams were top
scorers with a perfect score. The
third court, which was added this
season, proved of great benefit in
expediating the tournament, being
used throughout the evening for
various rounds.
Singles Ladder games are now
being started, and if sufficient mem
bers are interested thete will be a
series of Doubles Ladder games
Badminton is proving very popular
this year, and is being well looked
after by those in charge.

luck" during the past shooting season to vindicate their skill. First-
class turkeys as prizes. Be ready
for this attractive event.

Basketball Games Are
Proving Interesting
Three good games of basketball
were played on Friday the 20th. In
the Intermediate Boys,' game the
Wildcats and the Pirates faced each
other, and the scrap was as good as
the titles would imply. Stealing
where they could, the Pirates put
up a game fight against the savage
Wildcats, but the latter continued
their winning streak and finished up
with a score of 14 against 7.
The ladies next took the floor,
the High School and the Spooks
trying conclusions. Our childish
ideas of spooks were completely
shattered. These Spooks were not
by any means the nebulous, ethereal bodies we had always believed
them to be. However, the experienced High School Girls led them a
merry chase for the whole session,
being nosed out by just two points,
the final count being 8-6 in favor of
the story-book athletes, after four
minutes of overtime play.
The Senior Men's game between
the Celts and Vandals was full of
intarjest throughout. The Celts,"
last year's crack senior team, were
checked very closely by the experienced Vandals, who brought a dash
and vigor into the game which
made it a'treat to watch The score
ended 16-13, the Vandals being on
the top side.
A Senior Men's game was played
on Monday the 23rd. between the
Concentrator and the Vandals, the
latter winning by 24 to 16. The
Millmen, however, put up an excellent fight, and kept their doughty
opponents on their toes right till
the final whistle.
Ladies' Auxiliary Will Hold
Meeting Alice Arm Hotel
The annual meeting of the Lad
ies' Auxiliary of St. Michael's
Church, Alice Arm, will be held on
Tuesday afternoon, December 1st,
at the Alice Arm Hotel, at
3 o'clock. Election of officers
for the coming year will be held
and it is hoped that all ladies interested will attend.

Cold  Weather  Prevails
During Week
Cold frosty weather has been experienced throughout this district
for the past week, and the wood
and coal piles has suffered sad depletion. Although the cold weather
was' longer in coming this year,
when it did arrive it was loth to
leave and this month has probably
created a record for continued cold
weather.
Reported That Copper
Companies To Curtail
Output
The New York American, in a
recent publication, says world
copper producers, in conference at
New York, have agreed to curtail
world output as the only means of
bringing about stabilization of the
industry. It says announcement of
the agreement will be made early
next year, although final details
have not yet been worked out.
The paper says opposition of the
Katanga, Belgian Congo, interests
of Belgium to plans of other copper
interests have been overcome, although it was hinted that the final
agreement may show some concession to the Belgian interests.
The Belgian representatives have
been reputed to be opposed to the
proposal of a 50 per cent, reduction iti copper production. The
American says it has not been decided definitely whether the agreement will involve the large curtail,
ment.
■ The opposition- of the Belgian
group to any drastic reduction in
output, the paper says, was reported based on the fact that the Belgian Government controls the
Katanga mines and has used this
interest as the centre of development for its African colonies. It
was understood, it said, that the
first direct result of the agreement
of stabilization of the world copper
industry would be an advance to
about the 8 cents a pound level in
the export copper price. This
would be followed by an advance
in domestic prices.
Yukon Ice Sweepstake Is
.Abandoned
The annual sweep on the date
and hour at which the ice in the
Yukon River will begin to move
next spring, has been called off by
tbe committee at Dawson on account of the financial depression.
Qnly numerous local minute pools
will function.
The Yukon ice stopped running
on November 17th. at 7.30 p.m.
with the temperature 27 below.
The main river and its tributaries
are now solidly frozen over, to remain so until next May.

Viewing world wide conditions
in general it really seems as though
the world is about to give Old
Man De Pression a staggering
blow, perhaps not a knockout but
one that will stop him from occupying the spot light as much in
the future as in the past. The
light of hope of a trade recovery
was lit in Great Britain when the
Nationalist Government was elected by an overwhelming majority. The light obtained brilliancy when Great Britain elected
to adopt an import duty on
foreign manufactured goods, thus
protecting her home industries.
This wise measure means employment and prosperity for the people
of Great Britain, and prosperity
there spells the same for the Empire. The British people will have
more money to spend and due to
the preference given to the Dominions in regard to tariff it means
that Canada, Australia, etc. will
increase their exports to Great
Britain. A prosperous Empire will
quickly be followed by other countries.
Whether an agreement in regard to a further curtailment of
production was reached at the
conference of copper producers
recently held in New York has
not yet been published. Judging
from a recent drop in copper
prices to new historic low levels it
hardly seems likely that any binding agreement was made between
American and African producers
It is to be regretted that it is not
possible to make some arrangement whereby the majority of copper mining companies can realize a
profit, thus ensuring uninterrupted
operations during the present period
of excess unemployment.
The silver mining camps were
buoyed up with hope during the
recent jump in silver prices, but the
later drop in price has been disappointing. An international silver conference seems remote at the
present time. Great Britain is not
in favor of it, and both France and
the United States with their large
gold reserves, are certainly not
clamoring for it. With these three
countries indifferent there is not
much hope of an early conference
to discuss the silver problem.
Ontario   Nickel   Ores
High In Platinum
The International Niokel Co. of
Canada Ltd. is one of the world'9
greatest producers of platinum
metals according to R, C. Stanley,
president of the oompany, who, in
a letter to shareholders, accompanying the quarterly statement,
furnishes some information regarding the metal.
"The so-called 'ptati"1"" group'
comprises six metals—platinum,
palladium, iridium, rhodium, ruthenium and osmium." he states. "All
these metals, with tlie exception of
osmium, are refined to high purity
(99 per cent plus) by your company- In the process of extracting
nickel from our ore, the platinum
metals are recovered as a by pro-
duet. To separate and refine the
platinum metals contained iu this
by product material, the company
has developed at Acton. England.
the world's largest and most modern platinum metal refinery, having a capacity of 300,000 ounces a
year.
"These platinum metals are pre
cious, not because of popular whim,
but because they possess certain
desirable qualities. The study of
their application to the needs of
modern civilization is a proper
function of the platinum producer,
and we are bringing to this study
the experience of research and
marketing which the company has
gained in successfully finding new
uses for nickel.   In   this  way we

FIND PRIMEVAL AXE
A nthropologists In Canada are
"^ all excited over the discovery
during the construction of the
Eoyal York Golf course, Toronto,
bf a finely preserved bronze axe
bead, still capable of doing hefty
work in the hands of a determined
man. Some believe that it is an
Indian implement, but many more
say it is an authentic relic of the
Bronze Age, perhaps a score of
thousand years old and going back
to the dim beginnings of humanity.
Beautifully balanced and still quite
sharp, the years have left their
traces on the axe and there are
even to be seen markings where
leather strips bound it to the handle. Within sight of a great city
where once Indians prowled and
long centuries before them, primitive men fought with monsters, the
place where it was picked up will
soon be the scene of golfers teeing
off or negotiating difficult bunkers. The course will be open for
play next Spring.

Edison Started Career
In Canada
The recent death of Thomas A
Edison recalls the fact tnat he, like
Alexander Graham Bell, inventor
of tho telephone, proved his first
invention in Canada. Edison as a
youth was a telegraph operator in
Canada for tho Grand Trunk Rail
way (now the Canadian National)
and it was while so employed at
Stratford that he perfected his first
invention. It is an interesting
coincidence that almost at the
same time and only a few miles
away at Brantford, Ontario, Alexander Graham Bell was developing
his telephone over which the first
conversation was held between
Brantford and Paris, Ontario, on
August 10, 1876.

CANADIANS are fortunate in
their National Parks, in that
they have within their borders Alpine scenery which is not
equalled anywhere on the continent, and more and more they are
realizing that holidays in Canada
hold for the lover of out-of-doors
all the thrills that could be found
anywhere in the world. ■ Jasper
National Park in the Canadian
Rockies, contains many high peaks,
eternally snowcapped, and on the
sides of the mountains are glaciers
which have stood the test of ages.
Millions of tons of ice, stretching in
some instances, almost as far as the
eye can see, lure the adventurous
climber to new attempts, while in
the calm, peaceful valleys wild
game of all kinds live at peace with
mankind and the world.
Additional bungalows for the accommodation of guests are *o be
erected at Jasper Park Lodge, the
log-cabin hostelry of the Canadian
National Railways at Jasper National Park, in time for the opening of the .. season, it is announced by officials of the Hotel
Department, Canadian National
Railways. During last season the
popularity of Jasper National Park
was so great that the capacity of
Jasper Park Lodge was taxed, and
the  additional * bungalows   being I
provided this year will take care of
almost fifty per cent, more guests.
Four 4-room bungalows, each
room with bath, and two 12-room
bungalows, each room also having
private bath, are being ejected. In
addition, a double-deck boathouse,
with the upper Coor for conventions, and dancing, }s being constructed, and an octagonal curio
building is being built near the
main Lodge. Pour new buildings
are being erected to serve as employees' quarters, the kitchens are
being extended and the main
