Armistice Anniversary
Will Be Celebrated
Fourteen years since Armisticel
Who can believe that such a time
has elapsed, when the events of that
momentous period stand out so
boldly in the minds of most of us?
Since then the nations of the world
have struggled with the problems
of peace, and we do not have to call
to mind the commemoration of Remembrance Day. It is present all
too vividly. Once again the Canadian Legion, and their sister organization, the I. O. D. E., are
preparing to celebrate the great
Anniversary. Once again we will
remember our fallen comrades, the
maimed and helpless, the widows
and orphans. We will honor those
who lie in Flanders Fields, as well
, as those who rest ln our own little
burial ground. We will rejoice
with those that do rejoice and weep
with those that weep.
Poppies will be sold in Anyox by
the ladies of the I. 0. D. E.,  most
, probably on Thursday the 10th.
On Remembrance Day the members
of the Canadian Legion and all ex-
I" service men wilt parade to the cemetery to do honor to their comrades
who rest there.    In the evening the
I Annual Armistice Dance will be held
in the Gymnasium. On the Saturday the Annual Armistice Smoker
will be held, and on Sunday the
13th. the Memorial Service will be
held in the Recreation Hall. In
our next issue we will give further
details of these important events.
Enjoyable Dance Held At
:   Mine Hall
On Monday evening last, the
Mine Hall was the scene of a merry
gathering, when a dance was held
under the auspices of the Mine
Branch of the Community League.
A large number of dancers from
both the Mine and Beach were
present. With their usual thoroughness the Mine Council made
complete preparations, with the result that the whole evening was
most enjoyable. Stretton's Orchestra supplied delightful music, and
an appetising supper was served.
The Mine Branch of the League
are planning a series of card parties
and dances, the first of these functions to be held on November 17th.
Bridge as well as whist will be
played.
I.O.D.E. Will Hold Meeting
November 1st.
On Tuesday, November 1st. the
regular monthly meeting of the I,-
O. D. E. will be held in the Canadian Legion Club Room. The
meeting is called for 2.30 p.m.
Wild West Talkie Pictures To
Be Shown Thursdays
Good news to lovers of thrilling
Wild West pictures! In response
to several requests that have been
received by the Community League
for more pictures of the real Wild
West type, the Community League
have arranged for a splendid series
of these fine pictures, and will show
them on Thursday evenings. These
are the very newest talkie pictures,
featuring such stars as Ken May-
nard and Bob Steel. There will be
two shows every Thursday evening,
and the prices of admission will be
the same as at the Saturday and
Tuesday evening shows. At each
showing there will be a full programme of short- subjects as well
as the Western Picture.
This news will be specially welcome to the foreign population of
Anyox, as the pictures will be in
every sense educational as well as
entertaining. Colorful advance notices proclaim these pictures to be
full of thrills, vigor, and action,
with spectacular riding feats and
everything that makes up the fasi-
nating cowboy pictures of the west.
The first picture will be shown . on
Thursday November 3rd.

very enjoyable evening of dancing

Long & Varied Concert
Programme Delight
Audience
A gratifying response was made
to the sale of tiokets for the variety
concert given under the auspices of
the Anglican Church, on Friday of
last week in the Reoreation Hall,
when a lengthy programme was
presented. There were many delightful items, and the various artists were generous with their
encores.
The duet, "Out of the Dusk to
You" by Mrs. J. MoMillan and Mrs.
J. Peel, was sweetly rendered. As
an enoore "Underneath the trees"
with a perfect blending of voices.
The danoe: "Sheen Trews", proved
very popular, while the enoore was
still more acceptable. These bonny
Scotch lassies appeared later in the
"Sword Danoe" aiid t^heir dainty
style, nice balance, and easy sense
of rhythm was delightful. It can
truly be said that they have already
captured the hearts of many Anyox
folk, and a rousing-welcome greets
them whenever tb<fr«ppear- The
dancers were the Misu&K. McLeod,
M. Smith, L. Barclay, B. Barclay,
M. Barclay, and F. McLean.
Mr. Ashmore's song: "Thank
God for a Garden" was given in a
free and vigorous style, and for an
encore he gave "In the Garden of
My Heart." This lovely song was
given with spleudid expression and
feeing. Mrs. J. Dunn was heard
to fine advantage in "Poor Man's
Garden", while her encore "Road
to the Isles" was very appealing. ■

Basketball Personnels
Don Macleod
Don is the coach of the Concen-
trator squad. He made his first
appearance in big time basketball
with the Alberta Varsity five. In
1925 he donned an Elk uniform in
Anyox, and has been actively interested ever since. The following
year he joined the Concentrator
aggregation, and cannot be pried
loose from it. His one weakness is
the making of all-star teams. This
is his first attempt at coaching, and
by the way the millmen are burning
up the league it looks like a big
year for Don. He is heart and
soul for basketball.
Other Basketball Personnels will
appear in future issues ot the Herald.
Mrs. Wenerstrom Wins Sun
Life Cup
In the play-off among the various
winners of the Sun Life Cup for the
months of the past season, Mrs.
Wenerstrom proved the winner
with a net score of 91. There was
keen competition in this event.
Mrs. Wenerstrom thus earns the
right to hold the trophy during the
remaining months of the present
golf season.
Capt D. Donald Dies
Suddenly
Capt. Dan Donald, captain ofthe
steamship Prince Rupert, expired in
Vancouver on Saturday last shortly
after bringing his ship to port from
the northern run. Death was instantaneous and was due to heart
failure. Up until the time of his
death he appeared in perfect health.
The late Capt. Donald was a favorite among the travelling public up
and down the coast. He was 61
years of age and was born at Greenock, Scotland. He had been in the
service of the old Grand Trunk Pacific and later the Canadian Nation-
al Steamships over twenty-one
years. The funeral took place on
Monday at the Mountain View
Cemetery, Vancouver. Deceased
is survived by a widow and one
daughter residing in Vancouver.
Mrs. C. P. Hill Passes Away
At Victoria
Mrs. C. P. Hill, who was a sister
of Mrs. George Stewart, passed
away at Victoria on Wednesday
morning last, death being due to
heart failure. Mrs. Hill had been
in failing health since July. Mrs.
Stewart, who has been in Victoria
for some time, was with her sister
until the last. Mrs. Hill is well remembered in Anyox. She visited
here with her husband last Christmas and made a number of friends.
She was of a kindly disposition, and
her passing is very deeply regretted.
Civic Improvement Is Much
Appreciated
From the end of the covered
walk to the Townsite Carpenter's
Shop there is now a sidewalk, just
a matter of perhaps fity feet. This
provides clean walking over a piece
of road that has always been a vexation in wet weather. No matter
how carefully one proceeded, mud
and dirt could not be avoided, and
the thanks of all who use this
road—and they are many—go out
to those responsible for that blessed
piece of sidewalk.
Young  People  Will Hold
Hallowe'en Social
On Monday evening last the
Young People's Society of the United Church met to complete their
plans for a Hallowe'en Social to be
held in the Church Hall on October
31st. Mr. Reg. Key, the president,
was in the chair. A real Hallowe'en
party is planned, and it is expected
that about fifty members and their
friends will participate.

Big   Copper
Refinery In England
A refinery, whioh will be the first
of its kind in Great Britain, is
being established at Prescot, Lancashire, for producing high conduc
tivity copper for electric purposes,
The highly-developed technical resources and transport facilities of
the county are responsible for its
establishment in Lancashire, by
British Copper Refiners, Ltd
closely associated with British Insulated Cables Ltd.
The raw blister copper will be
imported from Rhodesia. Hitherto
the bulk of the Rhodesian copper
production has been refined in
America.
There is to be installed the latest
type of plant and equipment based
on international experience. One
thousand tons per week is the estimate of the initial maximum out-
i put, but plans provide for extensions
of building and machinery.
Work has started on the site,
and it is expected that the plant
will be produoing towards the end
of the year. Finished products
will include copper bars, billets
cakes, and slabs which are used for
the manufacture of underground
and overhead cables, winding wires,
copper sheets, tubes, sections, and
other mechanical requirements.

World Copper  Stocks
Show Slight Decline
Statistics regarding world oopper output and stocks are rather
meagre, but it is understood that
production in August declined
about 10,000 tons and stocks 2,000
tons. Total stocks were estimated
to be abput 796,000 tons. Shipments of refined copper are reported to be running slightly ahead of
production, but at the current rate
of reduction it will be a long time
before the surplus is reduced to
normal, according to the Canadian
Bank of Commerce business survey.
The fact that prioes have been fairly well maintained in the face of
slow demand is, however, thought
to indicate that they are not likely
to decline much further.
A gold mine in Sweden, whioh
will produce 320,000 ounces of gold
annually, will also produce as a
by-product 55,000 tons of arsenious
oxide, more than the world knows
any use for—now.

Is it a sin to pretend you're dead
while your boy cries out for a
mother's loving care? Is it wrong
to defy the world's censure for the
happiness of your child? Would it
be right to give health, beauty and
love, and become a lowly beggar
in the streets, so that your boy
might never know the history of his
mother? This picture is more soul-
searing than "Madame X". It is
drama and comedy, but mostly
drama of the sort that proves the
talking screen has no equal in
the portrayal of the deepest and
finest of human emotions. A glorious Metro—Goldwyn—Mayer picture.

CONQUERED   BY   A   SONG
T^ands have been annexed by fire and sword, but
the west coast of Vancouver Island has the unique
distinction of being won by a song. The Spanish
admiral who led an expedition against it in 1790, so
charmed the heart of the warlike Maquinna, Lord
of the Nootkas, with a theme song which he caused
his merry men to sing over and over until the chief
was placated, that the Indian made him welcome
and gave him jurisdiction over the Sound and the
Islands. Since that date the coast of Vancouver
Island has become the rendezvous of tourists from
all over the world.   Within easy reach of Vancouver,
Victoria and Seattle, it yet offers the attraction of
territory quite unspoilt by industrialism and a paradise of beautiful scenery and fruitful sport. As it
was when the Spaniards first Bighted it, so it virtually is today. Canadian Pacific steamships of the
British Columbia Coast Service travel up and down
this coast, and make it easily and comfortably accessible to visitors. Lay-out shows Canadian Pacific
coastal vessel "PrinceBs Norah" sailing among the
islands off the Vancouver Island coast; lower left,
Indian parade in village and totem pole with Lord
and Lady Willingdon and Captain Jack, Indian
Nootka Chief.

A group of pupils of Professor
Heppeler gave a string selection
from the opera "Freischuetz", and
their performance was most credit'
able. As an encore they gave
"Hungarian Melody" Later they
presented "Waltz Dream,'' and "S
"Waltz", in the latter number Miss
Arscott taking the piano in lieu of
Miss Peterson who joined the
strings. Those in the group are
the Misses M. Evans, B. Lee, E.

Mr. W. F. Eve selected two beau
tiful songs: "I Hear you calling
Me", and "Melisande in the Wood",
Both numbers were given with rare
quality of tone. Mrs. V. McRae
and Mr. Redman chose for their
duet "Where my Caravan has rested", and as an encore "You are my
Song of Love", their voices blend
ing perfectly.
Throughout the evening items
were given by the Anyox Concert
Orchestra, under the leadership of
Mr. J. Peel. It has now a flue violin and bass section. Great improvement was evident, such
numbers as "The Desert Song",
"H. M. S. Pinafore" and "Iu a Mon-
astary Garden" being given with
precision and good expression.
"Countess Maritza", was also creditably given. The able accompanists for the evening were Mrs. J.
MoMillan, Mrs. N. R; Redman and
Mr. J. Gillies.
All work and   no jack makes
play a dull joy.
Placer Miners Making Good
In East Kootenay
Nearly 1,000 provisional free
miners' certificates have been issued in the Kootenay mining1 divisions, according to B. T. O'Grady,
resident mining engineer at Nelson.
The number of prospectors in the
hills has grown to the same extent
and some interesting placer mining
results are looked for in the East
Kootenay fields.
Gold sold through the banks in
Cranbrook is said to have been
averaging about $150 a day. In
other sections no estimate of production is possible at this time, but
wages are being made in some
cases.
McKechnie Examines Alaska
Mining Properties
D. C. McKechnie, mining engineer of the Consolidated Mining
and Smelting Co. of Canada, arrived in Fairbanks, Alaska, and spent
several days in that section, after
having been in the Willow Creejt
district for several weeks looking
over the various hard rock properties. He did some investigating
around Fairbanks and then made
an airplane flight to the Kantishna
district to examine the holdings of
Joe Quigley. A trip was also made
to the Fourth of July and July Hill
and Kokomo placer projects owned
by Dan and Jack Egan.
Alaska Swinging Democrat
The straw vote on the presidential
election which is being taken by
the Literary Digest shows Alaska
to have swung from Hoover to
Roosevelt. Whereas the territory
was showing a slight Republican
margin, it now gives a small lead
to the Democrat.
Geo. P. McColl Buys Business
