Vandals Win  Basket-
Ball Cup In Brilliant
Playing without spares, and with
their captain, Walmsley, limping
around in one spot with an injured
knee, the Vandals beat the Concentrator 41 to 19 on Monday last,
thus winning three out of five
games of the play-off series and
capturing the Basketball Cup of
the season. It was a brilliant
game throughout. Both teams had
only five players, and great care
was exercised in order to avoid any
losses through personals.
The first two or three baskets
went to the millmen, who played a
fast and clever game throughout,
being unfortunate in the first half
in missing the hoop by fractions.
Steele's field shots, although carefully taken, somehow would misbehave. Heinekey and Dodd
played a fast and brilliant game.
The shining stars on the Vandal's side were the brothers Calderoni. Freddy the youngest, played
the slickest game of his career,
making ten baskets, while Ton}
took six and a foul. These two,
with Lee, made some flashing passes at all angles, and the game
throughout was extremely thrilling.
The teams: Concentrator, MacLeod, Bushfield 1, Dodd 5, Heine-
key 4, Steele 9. Vandals: A.
Calderoni 13, F. Calderoni 20, G
Anderson 1, Lee 7, Walmsley.
The game was well controlled by
referees Youngs and Lee.
Spooks Win Cup And
League Series
Playing determined and aggressive basketball on Monday last, the
senior ladies' team, the SpooJ*,
defeated the Pals 17 to 10, thus
winning three out of five'games of
'lie Basketball Cup series and securing the coveted trophy. In
winning the Cup as well as the
League series, the Spooks have
proved themselves a strong and
well balanced squad, outclassing the
speedy Pals in combination. The
Pals tried hard to avert defeat,
playing fast and'clever ball, but fate
seemed against them when it came
to making their shots tell. For the
winners K. Eve was the star, she
made several nice field shots and
was at all times dangerous. The
teams: Pals, L. Dresser 2, M. Barclay, P. Louden 2, N. Salmon 2, M.
Dresser 2, J. McDonald 2. Spooks:
T. Gordon 1, M. Cloke, J. Phillip,
K. Eve 10, P. Sheen 4, H. Calderoni 2.
Elks Will Hold Their Annual
Easter Dance
Always to be relied on for staging
an enjoyable dance, the Brother
Bills of Anyox Lodge are busy with
preparations for this Annual Easter
Dance, to be held on Easter Monday April 17th.
, The committee in charge are
leaving nothing undone which will
make for the enjoyment of their
patrons. Peppy and tuneful music
will be dispensed by the Merrymakers' Orchestra; supper will be all
that could be wished; the floor committee will see to it that everyone
enjoys themselves; and the dance
will go on until at least 2 o'clock.
It is especially desired that an early
start be made, so that the evening
will yield the fullest possible enjoyment. Everyone should attend this
annual function and enjoy a real
Easter dance.
High School Defeat Bonanza
On Friday evening a team from
Bonanza, augmented by players
from the Beach, attempted to haul
down|he colors of the High School
but were defeated 30-23. The students are now in tip top form and
playing brilliantly, while their opponents were unaccustomed to each
other's play and were not all in good
However, the game was interesting and played in a friendly spirit.
The teams: Bonanza, Manning 8,
Sutton, Bowd, Vierieck, Ferguson
4, Mitchell, White 2, Dodsworth 9,
Wendell. High School, D. Gillies
18, H. Dresser 6, F. Gordon 2, M.
Patrick 4, W. Shields, A. Dodsworth.
Changes Are Made In Golf
Some changes to the golf course
have recently been made, and players who have since been over it state
that a decided improvement has
been effected. One result has been
that it is easier for players who are
not accustomed to much walking,
The greens will be put into shape
at an early date.
Judging by the enthusiasm already
shown, it promises to be a record
season. Everybody is getting into
the "swing."
Alice Arm Notes
J. A. Anderson, district road superintendent, arrived in town on
Saturday from Anyox and left again
on Tuesday.
J. Hauber, who has spent the
past five months at the Premier
mine returned home on Monday.
Jens Larson returned home on
Monday, from a short visit to
Prince Rupert.
Badminton Club Splendidly Entertained
In return for the splendid evening
recently enjoyed by them at the
hands of the A. C. L, Badminton
Club, the Anyox Elks reciprocated
on Friday evening last with a card
party, supper, entertainment, and
dance. The evening was one which
will long be remembered by all
whose good fortune it was to be
present. Nearly 100 sat down' to
play cards, among whom were several visitors from Alice Arm, who
made a special trip over for the occasion.
Bridge and Whist occupied the
first part of the evening, the prize
winners being, Whist: Ladies'first,
Mrs. S. Down; Ladies'consolation,
Mrs. J. Cloke; Men's first, Mr. H.
Fowler; Men's consolation, Mr. J.
Heywood. Bridge', Ladies' first,
Mrs. G. Bailey; Ladies'consolation,
Miss M. Shields; Men's first Mr. F.
Stephens; Men's consolation, Mr.
Ted Kergin.
Supper was the next item on the
programme and was a most enjoyable affair, from both an appetizing
and a social point of view. This
was followed by a musical programme, in which the Elks' Orchestra
played a leading part. The newly
formed Elks' Hawaiian Orchestra
sprung a pleasant surprise by playing a number of selections in real
finished fashion.
The surprise of the evening, anticipated for some time with a mixture of wonder and glee, was now
unfolded. This proved to be a
mock Initiation ceremony, in which
three members of the Badminton
Club were put through, a formula,
which was evidently too much for
them, as they all succumbed to the
fearful ordeal.
The scene was laid in the desert,
the principals were dressed in true
Arabic fashion and the torture stations were weird, realistic and awe
inspiring. The whole arrangement—dialogue and contraption
alike—was original, and much clever
and painstaking preparation was
Each candidate had to pass three
stations after having traversed dunes
and burning sands. The first of
these was the Dissecting Station in
charge of Shah Islicem (K. Hunter)
the second was an electric station
controlled by Shah Ijoltem (H.
Hallcro) and the third was a branding station at which Shah Iscorchem
(L. MacKay) was the presiding genius.

Handling of The Anyox
Strike Citicized By
H. F. Kergin
Recollections of the Anyox strike
which occurred during the early-
part of February, were revived by
Mr. H. F. Kergin, M. L A. in the
Provincial Legislative Assembly on
March 29th. when he made a scathing attack against the Government
and the Granby Co. He declared
that both had committed grave
errors in handling the strike situation.
Mr. Kergin described the location
of Anyox, approachable only by
boat, where he said a foreign
company controlled everything.
The man who went to work there
found this company his employer,
his landlord and his merchant.
Prices of copper had been going
down. The men had had three
cuts of pay in a year, but neither
their rents nor their board had been
cut. They worked 20 to 22 shifts
a month at $2.25 to $2.40 a day,
and paid $1.10 a day for every day
of the month for board.
The men had a real grievance he
said, and on Sunday they declared
a strike. The company asked two
days' grace and it was given.
Within 24 hours of the strike being
declared to take effect Wednesday
the provincial police were on their
way from Vancouver.
Mr, Kergin described  the fight
between police and strikers on the
Mine Road, and said  that despite

Copper Producers May Meet
Again In New York
Informal conversations having
to do with the administration of
some potent tonic to the copper
industry, may beheld in New York
this month or early in May.
Various important North American producers expect to talk with
Fernand Pishart, representative of
the large Belgian syndicate, who
is to arrive in a few weeks.
Producers in Canada and United
States have been somewhat encouraged by the fact that copper has
been holding rather steady arouudt
five cents a pound. Securities ol
some of tho companies also have
displayed a firmer tendency.
Prices of the metal, however, have
refused to edge up to their levels of
this time last year.

Beatty of the C.P.R.
As Montrealers Know Him
Reprinted from Montreal Daily Herald
Vt. Beatty is
a quarterback who studied law, but
by a twist ot
fate, became a
railway president.
Though h e
couldn't make
the first string
on the Varsity
gridiron squad
he had no difficulty with the C.P.R. and has
played regularly ever since. They
say it was Shauglinessy coaching
that turned the trick (Lord S. not
He is probably the shyest man
in Canada.
The ladies admire him because
he wears his hat over one eye
and walks with a quarterback
swagger. The fact that he is a
bachelor and apparently intends
to remain one provides a secoad
element of "jo no sals quol" to
loop feminine hearts in a state
of flutter.
Business men like him because
he talks straight from tho shoulder and has an uucanny talent
for getting at the core of the
most intricate problem.
The man in tlie street respects
him because he preaches The
Gospel Of True Canadlanism.
Politicians fawn on him because
he is the boss of the C. P. R.
The Prince of Wales is another
citizen who thinks Beatty is "all
right," and His Royal Highness is
always ready to prove it by officiating at tho launching of a
new'C. P. R. ship.
Ordinary people respect, him
highly, and are sorry his railway
is having a hard time.
As a youth he wanted to be a
judge, but Fate intervened and
sent him a job in the C. P. R.'s
legal department. Young Beatty
refused to regard this as his life-
work, but ultimately had to decide in a hurry when the lato
Lord Shauglinessy sent for him
and asked him to be a Vice-President.
Here is one version of what
took place: •
Beatty said "No!"
"Tom" Shauglinessy fixed the
young attorney with a stem eye
and exclaimed, "My God, Beatty!
Do you want to be a mere lawyer
all your life ?" Young Beatty
smiled and took the job.
Some people think Mr. Beatty
is hard to reach and tales are
told of citizens who wait for
weeks for the call to conference.
Nevertheless he is the easiest
man in tho country to talk to,
provided you can crash the outer
He is one of the few leading
citizens who go in for Good Works
in a Big Way without thought of
publicity or praise. Not long ago
the mother of an ex-Boys' Home
youth who had lost his job in the
States, was destitute and needed
trainfare home in despair telephoned to E. W. The Chairman
and President of the C.P.R. came
to the phone in person, discussed
the case with the harassed mother,
told her not to worry and instructed the C. P. R. official
nearest to the boy to ship him
back to his home, paying the fare
out of his own pocket. These
are the things which have won
him a reputation for kindness and
He was born at Thorold, .which
Ontario people will tell you is
situated in the Garden of Canada.
He attended several schools In
Toronto, and ultimately scratched
his way into, through and out, of
Toronto University and was called
to the Ontario Bar. That was ln
1901 and almost at once he wen!
into the C.P.R.'s law department.
He stayed there for thirteen years
before becoming the company's
General Counsel. In 1016 he was
elected to the Board. In 1918
they made him President, when
Lord Shauglinessy dropped one of
his two portfolios. Six yaars
later he added tho title Chairman
to his letterhead. Since then hr
has held both jobs and has har"
plenty of worries on his hands.
He thinks co-oiieralive manage

than many salesman! To-day
you will see him ln Calgary. Next
Tuesday he will he In Montreal
On Wednesday hi) will appear before the Railway Commission In

Miriam  Hopkins,     Kay  Francis,
Herbert Marshall, Charles Ruggles
Edward  E.  Horton.
Here's breathless romance for
every girl who wants strong arms
about her and For every boy who
risks caresses that are intimate.
Romance for every woman whose
heart beats faster in the moonlight.
In this picture there are two Eves
and one Adam, who was somewhat of a snake. One Eve was
a brunette and the other a blonde,
but they both saw red when Adam
offered them an apple. This Ernst

a night and what fun. Don't miss
this great picture on Saturday.
'A Bill Of Divorcement'
John   Barrymore,     Billie  Burke,
Katherine Hepburn,  David  Manners, Paul Cavanaugli.
From every viewpoint—type of
story, acting, direction, and manner of presentation—this is a big
picture. The story is a domestic
drama. A divorce, a daughter, a
father who has been shell-shocked,
a re-marriage, blasted hopes, and
the family all broken up. John
Barrymore is a greater Barrymore,
more natural, more powerfully
dramatic. In one scene, where he
pleads with Billie Burke to take
him back, he reaches emotional
heights seldom attained by any
actor. Katherine Hepburn makes
her screen dobnt and is marked as
a potential star. Billie Burke,
aa the wife, puts over her part with
splendid ability.
Vandals Increase Their
Lead In Play-off
Playing smooth and clever basketball, the Vandals beat the Concentrator on Friday the 31st. for the
second win in the play-off series,
the final score being 39-23. At half
time they were leading 21-9, but the
Concentrator boys, by aggressive
play and good passing, made 14 pts
in the second half, as against 18 by
the Orangemen.
Steele, Heinekey and McDonald
worked untiringly for the losers,
while Lee and A. Calderoni topped
the scoring list for the miners, both
playing a brilliant game.

relating to local affairs, were asked
each candidate, the first of whom
fell down at station 1 and was tortured in a most uncanny manner,
finally expiring and being carried
out by two slaves. The second infidel tripped at the second oasis and
underwent severe punishment in the
electric chair, he being given ten
thousand jolts and disappearing altogether under the heavy voltage.
The third was gleefully operated
on by lscorchem, being branded
with red hot irons and finally forced
into a roaring furnace, a few rags
being the only evidence that remained. The "Ponderous Rajah" who
dominated the affair was Duncan
Campbell, and the slaves were M.
Abel and J, Kelly, while P. Powell
had charge of the sound effects.
The whole proceeding evoked a
continuous roar of laughter, the
dignified bearing and witty remarks
of the Rajah, and the antics of the
two slaves being noteworthy. An
enjoyable dance followed the music
being supplied by the Merrymakers'
Orchestra and thus a memorable
evening was brought to a close.
Great credit is due to the Elks for
the splendid evening's entertainment
which was entirely free to all the
guests. Quite a number of articles
were needed for stage effects and
this was made possible through the
courtesy of the Granbv Stores.
