Catholic  Ladies   Hold
Card Party And
Foundry Wins First Tilt
With Vandals B
On   Monday,   March   18th.   the
Catholic Ladies' Club, held a Card
Part\ and Concert at  the  Catholic
Hall, there  being  a  large number
present.    Whist was played at  ten
tables prizes going to the following:
Ladies'  lirst,    Mrs.  C.  Cameron;
Men's lirst, J. Buntain; Ladies'Consolation, Mrs. Eve; Men's Consolation, Don  Cavalier.      Songs  were
afterwards given by Mrs. Pinckney,
A. Abraham,   Miss I. Wynne,  and
Miss J. Pinckney.    T. W. Pinckney
gave a solo  on  a  one-stringed  instrument, which was well  received.
A number of children also took
part their splendid work being much
appreciated.    Credit is due to Mrs.
Salmon for  their  careful  training.
"The Minstrel Boy"  was  sung  by
Peggy  McDougall,   Jack Tierney
and Angus McDougall.    An exhibition of step-dancing was  given  by
Masters Jack and  Angus Tierney,
the former also giving an admirable
solo  step-dance.   * Patsy- Q^Brien
recited in a very charming manner.
The star item on the  programme
was  a  sketch:    "The Tramps" by
Angus McDougall and the Tierney
boys.    This laughable number was
well carried out and brought down
the house.     A song "Dear Little
Shamrock," in which all the children
took   part,   concluded   the    programme.    Refreshments were served during the evening.
Team-work and speed proved the
deoiding factor in the Foundry's
win against Vandals B on Monday
last, when the first of the cup final
series was played. But the Vandals put up a game bid before going
down to defeat, conceding the game
only an inch at a time. Scott and
Patrick were thorns in the sides of
the Vandals, their speed baffling
the opposition completely. At half-
time the score was 19 to 4 against
the Miners, but after the breather,
they turned in a good display,
checking effectively and passing
well. White showed up to good
advantage, while McCloskey and
Graham played a sterling game
The teams: Vandals B, Southey
2, White 10, MoCloskey, Home 2.
Graham, McDonnel. Foundry:
Scott 15, Patriok 11, Cloke 2,
Yelland, Hamilton, Church 4,
Deeth 1, O.Neill 1.   Total 34-14.
The game was well-handled by
referee Lazorek aud McBryde.

Next Issue of The
Herald May Be
It is possible that the next issue
of The Herald on Maroh 30th. will
be the last for some time at least.
Since the notice given out last
November by the Granby Company
regarding the close-down at Anyox
it has become increasing difficult
to carry on. Advertising has
gradually shrunk. Paid-up subscriptions are becoming more
scarce, but the work and expense
entailed in publishing the paper
has not decreased. Definite notice
will be given in our next issue.
Alice Arm  Notes
J. Skril left on Monday after
spending holidays with his aunt,
Mrs. H. Nucich. He intends going
to Whitehorse aud later may extend His trip to the Yukon.
Mrs. J. AVier returned on Saturday, from a holiday visit to Anyox.
Vancouver Realizes Import
ance of Anyox
The Vancouver Board of Trade
■ecommended to Ottawa and Victoria governments a fow days ago,
that everything possible be done to
prevent the closing down of the
Granby Company's plant at Anyox.
The closing of the plant, a brief
stated, would result in the loss of
several million dollars and would
possibly throw three thousand
persons on relief.
Premier R. B. Bennett, whose
illness continues, will likely be absent from his duties for another
month and it is believed possible,
that the general election will come
much later in the summer, than had
been at first anticipated.
Closing down permanently of the
Granby operations at Anyox would
be a catastrophe, Mortimer H.
Lamb, secretary of the B. O Division of the Canadian Institute of
Mining and Metallurgy, told the
mining committee of the Legislature at Victoria recently.
A memorandum; o,n the subject
had been sent tjo Ottawa, Mr
Lamb said, but met with little
Eight-cent copper would save
the situation, Mr. Lamb said. The
plant was due to close in June and
[prices might improve in that time.
Meanwhile, if some arrangement
could be made whereby co operation on the part pf the Provincial
and Dominion governments would
insure continuance of operations
without profit, the province would
be saved from another large increase in uneniployment relief
The cost of production_at Anyox
was greater than the market price,
which at present was 6« cents a
pound as against 12.9 cents in
1930. Granby had 108,000,000
pounds of copper in storage and
was gradually liquidating its reserve stocks. The present cost of
production was 8 cents.
Abandonment of the plan would
mean loss of employment for 1000
men and an additional 2500 persons on relief, Mr. Lamb stated.
In addition, 30,000 tons of Vancouver Island coal used every year
gave employment to 100 ooal miners who would also be thrown out
of work.
Explosives purchased annually
cost the companv $337,000, and the
Coastwise SS & Barge Co. would
go out of business. This company's
freight business amounted to $130,
000 a year. Outbound freight of
the C. N. R. and Union SS Co.
totalled another $82,000.
Cost of supplies purchased an-
ually totalled $1,721,000. and the
payroll amounted to $1,500,000.
Taxes to Provincial and Dominion governments amounted to
$150,000 annually.
If the plant was demolished, it
would mean $12,000,000 worth of
equipment would be thrown on the
market Mr. Lamb said.
The company had been operating on a return af one ounce of
gold to every 7000 pounds of copper and one ounce of silver to
every 1000 pounds.
With the completion of the new
power plant last week the Premiei
mine this week swung into its
normal production of some 500
tons of ore per day, four and one
half months almost to a day following the disastrous fire which
destroyed the former plant.
As stated in these columns on
March 1, the increase in employment was not as great as street
rumor anticipated, being only a
matter of some 30 to 40 men, due
to the efforts made by the Premier
management to retain in employment as many of the old employees
on construction and development
work as possible. However, with
the resumption of production the
crew has been increased to normal
of from 260 to 280 men.—Stewart
Spooks Win 2nd. Game
In Playoff
As in the first game of the playoff series in the Ladies' League,
only one point separated the win
ners in the second game, but this
time it was the Spooks who won.
Aces having won the first tilt 5-4.
It was a fast and flashy game,
featured by close checking rather
than by spectacular scoring.
Aces: L. Dresser 2, P. Loudon 1,
J. Pinckney 3, M. Dresser 2, A.

Elks Stage Come-back
In Second Playoff
After being badly beaten in the
previous game on Monday, the Elks
staged a brilliant come-back in the
second game on Wednesday against
the Trojans to win by the close
margin of one point, the score being
30-29. It was one of the fastest
aud most spectacular games seen on
the local floor. Vandals ran up 12
points before the Elks horned in,
but the docile herd made 17 points
before half-time as against 13 by
the Trojans. It was nip and tuck
all the way through the second half.
Johnny Gillies was top scorer for
the losers with 14 points and McBryde, whose work was outstanding throughout the game, made 16
for the Elks. Trojans: B. Gillies
7, J. Gillies 12, Gordon 2, Shields
4, Dodsworth, Dresser 4. Elks:
McBryde .16, L. Gillies 3, Davies 5,
Steele 6, Currie 1, Phillips, Scott.

controlled the game in a most efficient manner.

Bank of Canada Starts With
Big Gold and Silver
Government Assistance
Needed for Anyox
Now that the big copper mines
and ore reduction plant of the
Granby Company at Anyox are on
the verge of closing down the business people of Vancouver are beginning to realize the importance
of continued operation. They have
started to do some arithmetic, and
have found that nearly two million
dollars' worth of business will be
lost to Vancouver when the Anyox
close-down occurs. For the past
tweniy-one years approximately
$2,000,000 spent by the Granby
Company each year on supplies
have found its way to Vancouver.
In addition to this sum several
thousands a year can be added
which is spent by the people of
Anyox when taking holidays in the
south or going to live there after
spending several years at Anyox.
There is no denial to the statement lhat the Granby Company
have operated under adverse conditions during the past few years.
Copper prices have been, and still
are, ridiculously low, and to make
matters worse no market exists for
thei;' output, except in limited
quantities. It has been a debate-
able question for the officials of the
Granby Company for a long time—
several years in fact—as to whether
it would be more profitable to close
and await better times than to continue operations. They decided to
carry on to the limit of their resources, but that limit has unquestionably been reached and unless
assistance or financial guarantees
are extended to them by the Federal
or Provincial Governments, or both,
then Anyox will close and over 1000
men will be thrown out of employment, and a prosperous town of
2S00 people, enjoying every modern
convenience will revert again to a
Industry cannot absorb over 1000
men. The big majority will swell
the over-crowded ranks of unemployed. A good percentage, especially those who have come to
Anyox recently, will be forced to
accept relief, and those who have
saved a few dollars, unless they
speedily find work, will be forced
to do so when their savings are
gone, which will increase relief expenditures of both Federal and
Provincial Governments.
A deserted Anyox means huge
sums of money lost to the government in taxation. These taxes include property tax and royalty on
ore paid by the Granby Company,
also many other taxes, such as fuel

Canada's Gold Production Is
Still Increasing
Canada's gold production contin
ued to mount during December last
when the output'totalled 261,374
ounces as compared with 250,000
ounces in November and 248,639
ounces in December, 1933. During
the calendar year 1934 the Canadian
gold production totalled 2,964,826
ounces, an increase of 0.5 per cent,
in quantity over the preceding year's
total of 2,949,309 ounces.
U. S. Govt. Work At Hyder
Will Employ 70 Men
Work on the U. S. Federal Government Salmon River protection
project, is expected to start about
March 15, or shortly after the arrival of the S.S. Zapora from Seattle,
with mechanical and other necessary
equipment for the work which will
be under the direction of J. J. Truitt,
U. S. War Department engineer.
It is expected that this work will
employ some seventy men, about
forty of which will be brought from
Ketchikan, owing to there not being
sufficient local labour available.
oil tax, etc. Income tax, fees paid
to Workmen's Compensation Board,
amusement tax on two theatres,
customs duties, bank tax, profits
from Liquor store, etc. The above
represents a huge total, all of which
will be lost to the government.
The seriousness of the close-down
has been brought to the attention,
of the Federal and Provincial Governments. The former have declined to interest themselves in the
matter and it now remains for the
Provincial Government to meet the
situation. There are several means
of giving assistance so that opera^
tions can be carried on. A subsidy
of about 2 cents a pound on copper
could be given. Money could be
dvanced and copper accepted as
security and sold by the Government
when prices improve, or some other
plan could perhaps be formulated
by the financial experts at Victoria.

Ski Runners of the Canadian Rockies
With a field of activity unequalled the world over the new winter
sports association the Ski Runners of the Canadian Rockies,
is rapidly coming into prominence among skiers and winter sports
enthusiasts generally. The new organization is patterned largely
after the famous Trail Riders and its locale, unequalled for
scenery and facilities on this continent and probably without a
rival even in Europe, is Banff, in the heart of the Rockies, w'th
runs and trails varying from one to tsn days in duration and
covering such world-known objectives as Mount Assiniboine,
Simpson Pass, Shadow Lake, Lake Louise, Ptarmigan Valley and
Pass, Bow Lakes and Pipestone Pass. Ski-ing over sorre of these
passes is in full swing aslate as Junewhen visitors are enjoying (.-olf

Aces Defeat Spooks In
First Playoff Game
Baskets were as Bcarce as hens'
teeth in the tussle between the Aces
and Spooks for the first of the
play-off jinnies last Monday. Only
four baskets were scored in the
game, P. Loudon scoring in the
first quarter, J. McDonald in the
second, K. Eve in the third, and
Loudon again in the fourth. That's
the game in a nutshell. But we'd
need a column to tell of the merciless checking and splendid work
done by both teams. Each side
had tough luck with many shots
that were labelled all over, but
olose checking was the reason for
the close soore of Aces 5, Spooks 4.

Trojans Defeat Elks In
First Game
Trojans passed their way to a
nice win over the Elks in the first
of the play-off games last Monday,
when they ran up a soore of 44
against 27  by the antlered herd.
But they had no cinch until well
in the second half, when the Gillies
boys, aided by McDonald, sunk
their shots at a steady gait and
left the Elks hopelessly behind.
At that it was a good game to
watch, the speed and cleverness of
the Elks were pitted against the
line teamwork and accurate shooting of the Trojans, and many a
brilliant piece of work by both
sides was noted. Steele was in
his best' form for the losers, while
the smooth work of McBryde was
a treat to watch. Davies speed
and cleverness never slackened,
while Currie and Gillies were at
top form. Besides the Trojans trio
mentioned, Shields, Dodsworth and
Gordon all played a great game.
The game was nicely controlled by
referees Lazorek and Watson.
Elks:    Steele   14,    McBryde 8,

Tuning In on the Heart
f -.."..' i
A SMALL device which enables a physician to listen-in to the sounds
of the human heart magnified one hundred times, has recently
been placed in experimental use, according to an announcement by the
Northern Electric Company, Limited, in Montreal.
The device is an Electrical Stethoscope, based upon the telephone
principle with the heart doing the "talking". Originally it was developed for a medical student whose poor hearing prevented him from
using the ordinary stethoscope; its success, however, aroused immediate interest among physicians whose hearing is becoming dulled,
and those whose practice takes them into noisy places. Moreover, it is
found most useful in diagnosing pathological conditions of the heart,
as by simply throwing a switch, high or low tones may be emphasized
or eliminated, as desired, thus segregating the sounds peculiar to
certain diseases for more careful attention.
The entire stethoscope weighs less than a full instrument case
and is about half the size, using two "Peanut" Tubes and miniature
transformers. It forms a striking contrast to the larger hospital
type model which was earlier developed by the Bell Telephone Laboratories, and is used for auditorium demonstrations and at the largest
hospitals where almost an unlimited number oan listen-in at the same
