Large Crowd Enjoyed
Annual New Year
"Happy New Year." Hand in
hand and close together, round the
full size of the hall, stood the gay
dancers at the Gym at 12 o'clock on
New Year's Eve, to speed the parting year with "Auld Lang Syne"
and to hail the advent of 1933.
The occasion was the anuual New
Year Dance, an event sponsored
and managed by the Anyox Brother
It was perhaps, the brightest, biggest and best of all such celebrations so far. A huge crowd was on
hand, the decorations were most
distinctive and the supper was all
that could be wished. Added to
this was most enjoyable music and
a charmed atmosphere which no-
! thing could dispel. ,
Responding to the wishes of the
I Elks for a prompt start, the crowd
began to arrive early and soon after
nine o'clock the fun was on.   The
(beautiful decorations were worked
lout in the Elks' colors of purple and
[white.    The Merrymakers Orches-
Itra surpassed themselves with the
quality of the  music.    During the
I supper interval the Canadian Legion
Orchestra took charge and delight-
| ed   the crowd with some  special
1 numbers.
The novelties distributed during
the evening were well selected,
there being no annoying confetti,
streamers, etc. to litter up the floor
and impede dancing. Altogether
it was a most memorable evening,
and can be counted as one of the
most successful of those functions
held by the local B. P. O. Elks.
United Church Ladies' Aid
Elect Officers
The Beach Ladies' Aid of the
Anyox United Church held their annual meeting on Thursday, December 29th. Reports of the various

work had been accomplished. The
following officers for the New Year
were elected unanimously: Hon.
President, Rev. E. Baker; President,
Mrs. F. Bristow; First Vice-President, Mrs. Dunwoodie; Second
Vice-President, Mrs. J. Dunn; Secretary, Mrs. R. C. Cormier; Treasurer, Mrs. P. Forde; Pianist, Mrs.

The New Year
A merry throng, including almost
everyone in Alice Arm, was present
at the New Year's dance held at T.
W. Falconer's hall on Saturday
evening in order to bid farewell to
the old year and welcome in the
Everyone was imbued with the
joyous New Year spirit and everyday cares, such as silver and copper
prices, unemployment, relief scales,
and winter snows, were pushed far
into the background, as waltzes,
foxtrots, schottische etc were danced with joyous abandon.
Music was supplied by the Alice
Arm Orchestra, and throughout the
evening the spacious floor was covered with dancers. At the hour of
midnight, during a circle 2-step, all
joined hands and sang "Auld Lang
Syne", after which handshaking and
wishing everyone a "Happy New
Year" was carried out.
Firecrackers rent the air, and sky
rockets flared upwards in a vociferous welcome to the new year, which
everyone hopes will at least be
more kindly disposed than the old.
Hot coffee, sandwiches and cakes
were enjoyed with the dawn of
1933. Alice Arm had again celebrated the time honored custom of
giving the New Year the glad
hand, with hopes of reciprocation.
At the close, three hearty cheers
were given to Mr. T. W. Falconer,
for the free use of his hall, and also
the ladies who kindly provided refreshments.
Basktball Personnels
"Tony" Calderoni.
"Tony," as he is known to all
Anyox, is one of the smoothest
products of the local hoop industry.
Due to his clean style of play, his
effortless handling of the ball, his
unerring eye, and his constant
smile, Tony is a big favorite with
Anyox fans. He first wore the
oolors of the High School, then
those of the famous Celts, and now
he rightfully belongs to the Vandals and is playing his fifth season
as a maple court specialist. His
team has now defeated the other
three of the League quartet, and
are in a fair way to make a bid for
the top. We believe that Tony
now holds tlie record for the most
points scored in an Anyox game,
with twenty-eight to his credit.

Dansical Musical Comedy Was Enjoyable
An evening of enchanting entertainment was handed out to the
large crowd, who attended the Dansical Musical Comedy in the Recreation Hall on Wednesday last.
This novel and delightful comedy,
entitled: "Our Own Home Town",
was presented by a numerous cast
of Anyox young people, under the
direction of Mrs. V. S. McRae,
who deserves great praise for her
efforts to provide a means whereby
the young people could express
their various talents. That this
was accomplished was amply proved.
Three episodes occupied the evening, the first consisting of "Baby
Days," in which the youngest children held the stage. To enumerate
the many charming and delightful
turns given, would more than fill
this column, but trie work of these
dainty little tots, arid of the bigger
children, captivatedjthe audience.
In the second epitode the children
had grown to schoov«gey and soroe
fine individual items were presented.
The story went on to the presentation of a circus, and mention must
be made of the splendid work of
the Misses D. Doelle, M. Owen, L.
Barclay, I. Wynne, and M. Dunn.
These all performed their parts admirably. Surprises were opened up
in the circus acts. Jean C. Lee and
Florence McLean, as clowns were
excellent. Margaret Smith as a
Toe Equestrienne showed nice balance and grace, while Winnie Teabo
brought down the house with her
splendid acrobatic, display. The
proprietor of the circus, Dan Jnr.
(Miss Ida Wynne) performed well
the "Tapping Galop," and the Jiggers, Lorna Stretton and Kathleen
Pamplin, were fine in their Speciality Tap number. Shirley Manning,
who with Jean C. Lee gave a "Badinage" number, danced delightfully.
The "Winter Carnival" scene
disclosed some beautiful costumes,
and the various songs and recitatives were well given. Episode
three opened up with a chorus and
dance by a group of young ladies
whose beauty and charm would
have done credit to a large city.
Miss Barbara Lee took the part of
hostess of the cabaret, while the
bibulous waiter, Mr. Ted Kergin,
elided much laughter with his song:
"Pink Elephants," and his antics
throughout.   An  acrobatic dance,
I. 0. D. E. Review The
Season's Activites
The regular monthly meeting of
the Collison of Kincolith Chapter,
I. O. D. E., was held in the Canadian Legion Club Rooms on Tuesday January 3rd. Regent Mrs. C.
O. Fricker being in the chair. The
regular routine business was transacted and the activities of the
Chapter for the past few weeks
were reviewed.
The splendid doll's house with
its fine furnishings, was disposed
of at a community function held in
the latter part of December, and
the Chapter extends its heartiest
thanks to all who assisted iu swelling the funds thus raised. The
members of the Relief Committee,
together with all interested friends
are also thanked for their splendid
work in assisting needy people of
the district and also the unemployed. I
"Adagio," by Shirley McRae jind
Mr. S. Barclay was performed in
finished style. In the "Irish Dance"
Agnes Kruzick has a lightness find
grace which is all her own, while
Miss M. Cavers gave the "Collegiate Ten-step" most daintily.
"Spoons" was given as a Group
Tap number. A pleasing item was
the "Spanish Dance" by Mr. Lome
Falconer, cook at the cabaret, and
Miss B. Lee.
As a glorious finish to the long
programme there was a "Moth and
the Flame" dance by Miss Mae
Barclay and Miss F. Cavers. This
number reached perfection in its
setting, its fine costumes and clean
finished style. As the Moth, Miss
Barclay danced with a grace and
freedom which would have done
credit to the professional stage.
Miss Cavers filled well with the
minor part of the Flame.
Outstanding in the first part of
the programme were Nancy Gigot,
Moyra Manning, Masters Manning
and Smith and Jack Lindsay, the
latter being an Italian purveyor of
fruit and candies.
Great credit is due to Mrs. A.
Pynn for her work as accompanist.
Playing for all the rehearsals, Mrs.
Pynn was an invaluable help to the
success of the evening. Messrs.
Pynn and Manning assisted greatly
in the work behind the scenes, and
the lighting effects were looked
after by R. MacMillan and L. H.
Wenerstrom. The Musical Comedy will be re-acted on Friday, January 13th.
Wm. Hindmarsh Died
From Result Of
An accident with fatal results occurred in the Crushing Plant at Anyox about 7 o'clock on Monday
evening last, when Mr. W. Hind-
marsh lost both legs through an explosion of powder. First aid was
promptly rendered by the crew at
the concentrator and by Mr. Fred
Graham, and the injured man was
quickly conveyed to the hospital.
After the necessary operations
had been performed he appeared to
recover from the tremendous shock
he had sustained, but passed away
about 4 a.m. on Tuesday. "Bill"
as he was familiarly known, had
many friends in the smelter town,
where he had resided for four years
and four months, and his sudden
death was a great shock to them.
In May of 1930, through an accident, he suffered an injury to his
foot, from which he did not recover
for over a year. His parents reside
at 3702 Tenth West, Vancouver,
having previously lived in Nanaimo.
He was 24 years of age, and a
member of the Anyox Lodge of the
B. P. O. E. An inquest was held
on Wednesday by Coroner G. S.
Macdonald, a verdict of accidental
death being returned. The body
was conveyed to Vancouver on
Wednesday, a number of members
of the Elks' Lodge being on the
dock to pay their last respects.

We have already passed one
week of the New Year, and now
that everyone is back to their
everyday business following the
festive season, there is time to try
and read the future and speculate
if business conditions will improve
during the next twelve months.
Although the future gives no guarantee of any big boom, it is verv
probable that business in B. C.
this year will show an improvement over last year. The preference obtained for many B. C.
products in Great Britain and the
rest of the Empire is expected to
stimulate trade during 1933. Our
lumber, fruits (boxed and canned,)
canned salmon, minerals, etc. all
enjoy a preference over foreign
producers in Empire markets, and
it is up to us to take advantage of
Our gold production showed a
big increase last year, and the production this year is expected to far
surpass last year. New properties are being developed, some
with extraordinary good results.
Prospectors are busy staking claims
in all gold bearing districts, and
this year will see many new properties developed, and many now
being developed will be shortly
Unfortunately the prices of all
other metals are at a low ebb,
especially silver and copper, which
at the present time are down to
record low prices. This district,
unfortunately, is dependent upon
chiefly these two metals for its
livlihood, and while the usual
amount of copper is being produced at Anyox, the future is cause
for some anxiety. When the price
of these metals will rise, no one
can tell. One person's guess is as
good as another. All we can do
is to hope for a speedy price recovery, and in the meantime face
the future with courage.
The provincial government recently drew the attention of the
public to the advantage of buying
as much as possible of goods made
or grown in B. C. If B. C. goods
are not obtainable then buy Canadian, and thirdly buy Empire made
goods. If everyone in B. C. insisted on B. C, Canadian or
Empire goods it would greatly
stimulate provincial trade. Buy
goods made at home first, then buy
from within the Empire, for it is
the Empire that is Canada's best
customer today.
We'd all get more mileage in life
if we'd never shift our mouths into
high gear until we're sure our
brains are turning over.
Buy B. C., Canada, Or
Empire Goods
British Columbia citizens oan
create new jobs for their fellow
citizens if they will buy at home,
buy in Canada, and buy Empire
goods, in that order, Hon. W. A
McKenzie said at Victoria last
week in an instructive address on
the aims and efforts of the Tudor
Hose League, of which he is a
Work for 30,000 additional coal
miners in Canada would have been
given last year if Canadians had
bought at home some of the 13,532,-
000 tons imported, mostly from
American channels. This added
work would have given a livelihood
to a total of 120.000 men, women
and children, most of whom were
on relief. Similarly, British Columbia imported 250.000 tons of
coal, up five times from imports of
a decade ago. This would have
given a full year's work to 500
British Columbia miners, each with
an average of three dependents.
Victoria City, he said, by importing 10,000 tons of outside coal, removed opportunity for 50 Vancouver Island miners to work 200 days
last year.
Canada Enjoys Favorable Trade Balance
Canada's favorable export balance of trade for the calendar year
1932, will be slightly over $50,000,-
000. This figure is arrived at by
returns made to government de
partmeuts with the last few days
of the year estimated by trade experts.
Canada's total exports of domestic goods is estimated at $498,301,-
000. It also exported foreign goods
estimated at $8,018,000. The imports during the year are estimated
at $455,877,000. Since this in-
oludes the goods afterwards reexported, the export balance is the
difference between the total exports
(domestic and foreign) and the
total imports.

Montreal's "Radio Police" Get The Air
PAIR of giant steel antenna towers, rising one
hundred feet above the roof of police headquarters on Gosford Street, is the only visible indication that the general public has of the Police Radio
System which will be officially put into operation this
week by Fernand Dufresne, Director of the Police Department of Montreal.
That the new radio system will be of value in the suppression of crime is
indicated by the fact that while the preliminary tests were being carried
on during the installation of the system a call came over the air to the test
car driven by a police officer who made the first radio.arrest in the Montreal area.   Several other arrests have since been effected during tests.

Canadian Pacific Welcomes Co-operation
But Opposes Compulsory Arbitration
E.W. Ceaity K.C., Chairman and President Makes Vigorous Protest Against
Proposed Arbitral Board in Presenting Company's Case Before Senate
Committee Considering Legislation to Implement Duff Report.
WELCOMING the suggestion
of co-operation and voluntary agreement, but vigorously
protesting against the pioposed
Arbitral Board and compulsory arbitration, E. W. Beatty, K.C., Chairman and President, Canadian Pacific Railway, recently stated tho
case for his Company before the
SenateRailway Committee considering legislation to Implement recommendations mado by the Royal
Commission on Railways and
transportation in Canada.
"Against the
principle o f
compulsory arbitration embodied in part
III. of the Bill
the Company
must enter it3
most vigorous
protest," II r.
Beatty declared. "An examination of the
subjects enumerated in Section 19," h e
Mr. E. w. Beatty   continued, "will
Chairman and President Bnow that the
Canadian PadBcRy.   jurisdlctlon   „f
the Arbitral Tribunal embraces
matters of so great importance as
to amount to virtual control in
all major branches of its undertaking. Take alone the subjects
of joint terminals and the pooling
of traffic. The former are the
nerve centres of railway operations, and the latter involve the
•whole benefits received from such
operations. It is to be open to
either party to propose measures
involving these vital matters, and,
if agreement U not reached, both
the principle of the proposal and
the terms on which it is to be carried out are to be left to arbitration. It will be noted that every
one of the subjects involve questions of policy, questions of administration, and, underlying both
of those, questions of finance, and,
for that reason, they are in my
submission, not fit and proper to
be determined by arbitration. The
Company welcomes the suggestion
of voluntary agreement as to such
matters. They are quite propor-
ly the subject of voluntary cooperation, but the Company is
startled by the suggestion that
they may be forced upon it by an
authority not responsible to its
shareholders. Control by a tribunal constituted as proposed
should not be imposed upon a privately owned railway company
operating 1n competition with the
Government Railways.
".The sweeping character of the
arbitration feature of the Bill is
shown by the provisions of Section 17, which declares that It is
to extend to a>l disputes between
the two companies. Probably this
expression was intended as incidental to the measures of co-operation enumerated in Section 19,
but, in any case, it opens up a
very wide field of jurisdiction.
"As to the Arbitral Tribunals, it
will bo observed that whether
they consist of three or five members, the Canadian Pacific is in
every case to have a voice in the
appointment of only one member
of the Board. In the last analysis, therefore, the Company will
be completely divested of control
of its property in favour of an
outside authority, i I cannot too
strongly urge upon you the serious nature of this feature of the
Bill, as well from the standpoint
of public policy as of the rights
and interests of the shareholders
of the Canadian Pacific.
"To contrdl of its undertaking
as provided by the existing statutory law, the Company takes no
exception. Regulations through
the Board of Railway Commissioners and the control of rates, facilities and services in the interest
of the public is a proper subject
of legislation, but Part III. of the
proposed Bill is a very different
"If it be the view of Parliament
that co-operation Shall be controlled and directed by another
and independent tribunal, whose
decisions shall be final and binding on the Canadian Pacific, then
I would suggest, for your consideration, that the Government of
Canada and tbe Canadian Pacific
should enter into an agreement
for a period of years by which the
Company would agree to this
form of administration upon receiving protection to the holders
of Its securities and shares; that
consideration being given because
of the relinquishment of the control of their own property during
the term of such agreement."
In leading up to bis statement
of tho Company'3 position, Mr.
Beatty pointed to the great part
the Company has played in the
up-bullding of Canada and argued
that the proposed Arbitral Board
was in fact an invasion of the
Companys' charter rights,—rights
granted it ln return for constructing the road and thus making
Confederation an established fact.
"During the fifty years of its
existence the Company's undertaking has expanded with the
growth of the country," he said,
"until its property investment now
represents more than $1,100,000,-
000, held by not less than 180,000
share and security holders, over
60,000 of whom are Canadians..
Since 1902 the Company has is
sued $270,000,000 Ordinary Capital
Stock at an average premium of
42%, receiving therefor $382,616,-
000 all without expense to the Dominion, direct or indirect. At
that average price, a dividend of
5% yields a return of only 3.53%
to the shareholders on their investment. It is my submission to
your Committee that the magnitude of their undertaking and its
importance to the country entitle
them to consideration in any legislative measure affecting their
control of their property. They
have provided Canada with a
transportation service on land and
sea that is unexcelled in the
world, and there i3 no part of ber
settled territory and no phase
of her commercial life, and welfare that is not touched by the
operations of the Company and
concerned in the continued success of its enterprise. As the
Royal Commission has said, the
Company is Canada'3 largest taxpayer. Its tax bill during the
last ten years averaged more than
$7,000,000 per annum, and since
its incorporation it has paid upward of $116,000,000 ln taxes. During the last fifteen years it has
contributed to the Federal exchequer the sum of $25,500,000. As
a citizen it has contributed its
full share to Institutions of a public nature for the advancement of
social and commercial welfare."
The Company, he contended, has
been the foremost agency in Canada in the work of colonization,
immigration Mid development, and
as a war effort had been able to
advance or guarantee to the Empire cause more than $100,000,000,
•and to furnish means of transportation for approximately 1,000,000
soldiers and 4,000,000 tons of war
Mr. Beatty referred to the consolidation of the Government railways ten years ago. The Canadian
National had at once begun an
active and aggressive campaign of
competition backed by the credit
and resources of the Government.
To alleviate the situation arising
out of that competition the Bill
proposed close co-operation between the Canadian National and
the Canadian Pacific in order to
effect necessary economies.
"•"So far as the Canadian Pacific
is concerned," he continued, "we
would accept a statutory direction
that we should co-operate because
we are willing to co-operate. We
are satisfied that a fuller measure
of co-operation will be secured
from three causes, first, the necessities of the situation; secondly, the statutory direction by Parliament that this should be a matter of policy by the private com
pany, and, thirdly, because of the
creation of a board of trustees
specially charged with the duty of
carrying out the policy of Parliament in this respect.
"I observe in some of the ad^
dresses delivered in the Senate
upon the bill that some phases of
the measure were advocated or
accepted in the belief apparently
that there was-no other alternative which would bring about the
economies so sorely required.
Quite obviously, there Is only one
way in which the maximum economies are obtainable and that is
unification for the purpose of administration, whether for a limited number of years or for a long
term. The Royal Commission has
considered and rejected such a
plan for reasons they have explained in the Report, but there
can be no doubt of its very great
advantages from the point of view
of economy and efficiency.
"I am not an alarmist, nor am
I a pessimist so far as Canada is
concerned. . I commend, however,
to the committee the conclusions
in the last paragraph of the Report of the Royal Commission aB
to the effect on the Dominion's
finances and on the Companys'
position unless we take heed of
the present grave situation and
adopt drastic measures to correct
it. I have already said that I
regard the Railway problem as
the most vital domestic problem
confronting the Canadian people.
In spite of Its importance, there
is a great lack of understanding
of what the real facts are, and in
consequence there has been until
recently very widespread apathy
about it."
Mr. Beatty pointed out that the
Royal Commission had found that
the identity of the two railways
should be maintained, but that
there should be a maximum of cooperation with a continuance of
competition. A maximum of
good will would be necessary to
reconcile competition and co-operation, and he believed that better
results could be obtained through
friendly efforts than through an
Arbitral Tribunal.
"The very fact that a higher
authority exists will tend to relax
these efforts by weakening responsibility," he declared. "I urge
this in the interest of both companies. And it is a peculiar commentary on the logic of the Commission's findings when we read
that consolidation for the purpose
of administration is rejected because it would put too great a
power In the hands of a few men.
This menace, in their judgment,
is overcome by putting it into the
hands pf one man."        J     874 ALICE   ARM   AND   ANYOX   HEKALD.   Saturday. January 7.  1933

0. Radio Picture.
This is the story of two human
souls amid the city's clash and tumult—the great, imperishable drama of all people, even as you and
I —loving, living, dreaming life's
triumphs. All the fine human emotion that Fanny Hurst poured into
her immortal "Humoresque" hiag-
nified to create for ever the stirring
rhapsody of a city sheltering its
children. In direct, sure strokes,
the lives of the simple men and
women who inhabit New York's
teaming Ghetto, are painted. It is
a love story for all the family to see.
In our report last week of the
rendition of Handel's "Messiah"
by the United Church Augmented
Choir we omitted to mention the
names of Mrs. V. S. McRae, who
very capably sang part of the soprano solos, and Mr. F. Dresser,
who officiated as organist.
A First National and Vitaphone hit
with Warren William, Guy Kibbee,
B'ette Davis.
This picture is Hollywood's screaming satire on politics. It gives the
ludicrous low-down on galloping
grafters, pork-barrel politicians and
scheming spellbinders. Warren
William is a philandering political
boss. Bette Davis is his smart
sexretary who thought women's
place in politics was in the boss's
arms. Guy Kibbee is the dummy
candidate who was too dumb to be
crooked. This picture is the biggest laugh in a year of political
jokes. By all means see it on

Honesty, courage and modesty
are the cardinal virtues that
make for success and they should
be the ideal of every Canadian
boy, said E. W. Beatty, chairman
and president ot the Canadian
Pacific Railway, in addressing
the Montreal District Scout
Council at their headquarters in
that city recently. Mr. Beatty was
speaking in his capacity as president of the Canadian General
Council of the Boy Scouts' Association and at a function at
which he   had   been presented
with a copy of tbe new Scout
song book, "Songs for Canadian
Boys." The appeal of this book
is to all classes of boys and
girls, to adults and to the English-speaking world generally.
Some of the finest poems in the
language are included, making
the book an anthology in itself.
The songs Include those common
to the Empire, songs of Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland,
Wales, the United States, French-
Canada, France, sea songs, sea
chanties, scouting and marching
songs, choruses and miscellane
ous songs. The French-Canadian
song group have scholarly English translations by J. Murray
Gibbon. It is a book that would
adorn the shelves of any library.
Mr. Beatty made a complete
inspection ot the Scouts' Montreal premises and evinced lively
Interest ln the toy shop where
hundreds of old and damaged
toys -were being put into shape
and renovated tor distribution
among the poor and destitute
children at Christmas. Photograph shows blm among the boys
at work ln the shop.
