Presentations & Music
t Mark Final P. T. A.
The Anyox Parent Teacher Association assembled on Monday evening in the United Church Hall for
its concluding meeting of the year.
The executive was instructed to decide what action should be taken
regarding the preparation of a float
for the Dominion Parade.
Following the brief business session there was a delightful program
of music.    The numbers included:
Piano Solo, Mrs. James McMillan
Vocal Solo, Mrs. Dunn
Vocal Solo, Mr. Ashmore
Vocal Solo, Mrs. V. S. McRae
accompanied by Miss Anne McLachlan, (Piano) and Mr. V. S.
McRae, (violin)
Mrs. McMillan played the accompaniments for Mrs. Dunn and Mr.
Ashmore, and for the community
singing which the meeting requested from time to time.
At intervals during the musical
program presentations were made.
A number of school children who
had won awards in the King's Birth
day Tennis Tournament conducted
by the P. T. A., attended and received their prizes from the President, Mrs. G. M. Lee.
Two high school students Mr.
Maxwell Patrick and Miss Barbara
Lee were presented with prizes won
in the Provincial Fire Prevention
Essay Contest. In making the
presentations, the honorary president, Mr. Fordyce Clark, stressed
the social value of many of the
additions to the curriculum and remarked upon the greater possibilities afforded for arranging worthwhile competitions. Especially
elaborate refreshments were served
to an augmented number of members and guests. For the excellence of the program and refreshments the Association was indebted
to Mrs. Cloke and Mrs. Loudon,
heads of the respective committees.
When the volunteers for the
clean-up work had finished, those
who had remained prolonged the
singing until late in the evening.
Mr. Charles Booking, President
of the Granby Co. arrived on
Wednesday night at Anyox. The
launch Granby brought him from

good music, were entertained to
their heart's desirp on Sunday afternoon, when the celebrated Anyox
Amateur Orchestra paid the town
•i visit.
Although very short notice had
been given of their visit, quite an
audience filled T. W. Falconer's

the concert commenced, and many
more basked in the sunshine outside
to enjoy the entrancing melodies
that floated from the open windows.
The Anyox Amateur Orchestra is
among the best north of Vancouver
and their superb rendering of the
various numbers, convinced their
audience that each musician was an
artist, who knows his part thoroughly. Mr. Ross Oatman who
has succeeded Mr. Stuart Steel,
filled his new position very efficiently as conductor.
Great praise is clue the members
of the orchestra for their generosity
in giving such a first class concert

Concentrator Win Game
Against Mine By
7 to 6
The Anyox Baseball League was
officially opened on Tuesday evening, June 17th. with a game between the Mine and Concentrator.
The Concentrator finally won out
by a score of 7 to 6, but got a real
scare in the sixth inning, when the
Mine put on a rally that gave them
three runs, and was just one short
of tying up the score, but for a few
minutes it looked as though they
had made up their minds to go out
and win the game then and there,
but after a bad start the Concentrator infield tightened up and put a
stop to the capers of the Mine
Very few fans turned out to see
the game, which was very good in
spots, and very bad in others. It
is hoped that when the evenings get
a little warmer than they have been
lately, that the fans will turn out in
full force to cheer for their favorite
Some of the players showed lack
of condition and practice but this is
only to be expected, owing to the
unsettled weather, which has prevented the boys from getting out on
the field and getting into shape.
However, they made a pretty good
start, and before the season is over
some real exciting and fast games
will be dished up to the spectators.
In the batting, two-baggers seemed to be the order of the day,  no
less than four being poled out dur-.
ing the game.
Enjoyable Dance Alice
Arm Hotel
FirSt-class music, a happy crowd
and numerous dancers were features
of the dance held at the Alice Arm
Hotel on Saturday evening. From
early in the evening until the strains
of the "Home Waltz" died away,
the spacious dining room of the
Hotel was filled with dancers.
Quite a number of Anyox visitors
were present, as is usual with the
week-end Alice Arm summer dances
and everyone seemed to thoroughly
enjoy their visit.
Music was supplied by the Alice
Arm orchestra, and the rendering
of many of the latest snappy dances
was greatly appreciated. An excellent supper was served by the
Hotel management.

In a few week's time we shall
again be in the throes of another
election. Already the big guns
of both parties have commenced to
thunder, away back east, and
shortly will reverberate through th<
mountains of British Columbia
They will be followed by those of
smaller cabibre, and the intensity
of the wordy bombardment will
increase until the final broadside is
fired on Saturday evening, July
26th. On Sunday everyone wil]
have ample time to digest the
promises, denials, and condemnations of both parties, and on Monday July 28th. they will be able
to mark their ballot unexcited by
the late fray. In the Skeena district, J. C. Brady who has represented us for the past four years is
again in the field for the conser
vative cause, and his many supporters, expect the eloquent, witty
Irishman to repeat his win of four
years ago. The Liberal party's
hopes are pinned to Olof Hanson
the liberal candidate who will
oppose Mr. Brady. Mr. Hanson
is a stranger to practically every
one in Alice Arm and Anyox.
He is of Scandinavian birth, and
hails from Smithers, where he is
engaged in the pole and railway tie
business. Both candidates are firm
in their convictions that the party
they represent is the one and only
party that is fit to govern the Dominion and bring her safely through
the present world trade depression.
It is the duty of everyone to carefully weigh the utterances of both
parties carefully in the balance, and
whether you are conservative, liber-
ial, socialist or anarchist, to vote
for the party that you think is
most capable to govern this rich
and vast Dominion, in the best
interests of everyone, not only in
Canada but also the Empire. For
prosperity for Canada means increased prosperity for the other
units of the Empire. As in all
previous elections the Herald will
publish the speeches of the speakers of both parties without favoring either. Both parties will obtain
a "square deal" in regard to publicity as far as the Herald is

Signs that Copper Prices
Will Shortly Improve
Before departing on his annual
vacation trip abroad, Simon Guggenheim, president of American
Smelting & Refining Co., ' was
optimistic regarding the outlook
for improvement iu the copper
"Our business has shown a much
improved trend over 30 days ago,"
he said, "and with present stooks
of copper on hand being well absorbed, I look for a definite turn for
the better to set in around October
"In May, considering conditions,
there was a good demand for metal
and although the summer months
will show some retarding, by early
fall the increase in demand should
have a healthy effect upon improved production and better prices
for metal in general."
Sales of copper, both foreign and
domestic, were of record proportions during the month of May.
though most of the business was
placed immediatley after the price
was reduced to around the 12^e.
basis. A check on sales for the
month reveals that more than 260.-
000 tons of copper was sold. This
tremsndous activity is expected to
bring about a change for the better

A World's Masterpiece
Will Be Shown On
Out of the sewers and alleys of
Paris came thundering hordes of
ragmuffins led by the arch fiend
Robespierre. All France shuddered—the aristocrats trembled—the
streets ran red with the blue blood
of the land. Into this reign of Ter-
ror steps an English gentleman, Sir
Percy Blakeney, who takes upon
his own shoulders the responsibility
of outwitting the dreaded Robespierre. This is the meat of "The
Scarlet DareDevil," a World Wide
Picture coming to the Beach next
Tuesday, the Mine on Wednesday,
with Matheson Lang the famous
stage actor, in the title role. Adapted from the famous novel "The
Triumph of the Scarlet Pimpernel,"
by Baroness Orczy, a best-seller
of a decade ago, the book has been
read all over the civilized world.
The picture was made in England
and directed by T. Hayes. In the
cast supporting Mr. Lang is Juliette
Compton, formerly of Ziegfield's
Follies; Marjorie Hume, of the
English stage; Hayden Stevens,
a young English leading man, seen
here playing opposite to Blanche
Sweet in "The Woman in White,"
and Nelson Keys, a character actor
of reputation, as Robespierre.
Several thousand extras are used
in the effective mob and street
scenes, and the settings of the days
that revolutionized France are effective. Mr. Lang as Sir Percy
Blakeney is said to be doing splendid work as the English gentleman
