Rev. A. Abraham Gave
Address P. T. A. Meeting
The regular meeting of Anyox
Parent-Teaohers Association was
held on Monday evening, Maroh
19th. with a good attendance of
members .and visitors, Rev. A.
Abraham delivered an excellent
address on ''Child Psychology" in
regard to Motion Pictures." He
based tiiuoli of bis discussion on
tha findings of eminent psychologists, and also on the results of investigations carried out over long
periods of time with large groups
of children,
The iiiadvisibility of permitting
children under eighteen to attend
too many pictures, and pictures of
certain types, was stressed, and the
danger from a moral, mental and
physical standpoint was shown.
A very satisfactory discussion
along these lines followed Mr.
Abraham's discourse.
. These meetings usually deal with
matters of great importance to
parents and to anyone interested
in child welfare aud behavior.
Non-members are specially invited
and are always made welcome.
Fight Card Possible In The
Near Future
Newly-elected Sports Councillors
from the Mine and Beach branches
of the A. C. L. are planning to get
together shortly to arrange a Fight
Card. It will be recalled that a
sports event of this kind was planned to take place a few weeks ago,
but was unavoidably postponed.
It is understood that principals are
now available and in readiness and
plenty of first-class material is
offered for the preliminaries. If
the projected card is as good as
the previous one it will prove very
popular. Further announcement
will probably appear shortly.
Hoop  Players  Should
Respect Referee
"Be a sport and play the game!"
This applies to any sport and especially to basketball. The referee
is staying by the rules and wants
the players to do so. Infringements have their penalties. It is
poor sportsmanship to question
decisions, make remarks about the
referee's handling of the game, or
talk back, while the game is in
progress. The spectators have far
greater respect for the player who
abides by the findings of the referee, and says nothing.
It must be remembered that the
referee's job is no cinch. His eye
and mind are working fast through
every minute of play. He is responsible to the players and the
public. So respeot rather than
abuse him, own his knowledge of
the game, and be loyal to him in
efforts to have the rules observed.
Vancouver Board of Trade
May Visit Here
The Vancouver Board of Trade
have deoided to visit the British
Columbian coast during their annual excursion this year. They
will charter a special steamer, as
in former years when on their annual excursion. They plan to extend their trip as far north as
Stewart and no doubt they will
also visit Anyox and Alioe Arm.'
Towns on the mainland will be
visited ooming north and on the
return trip, communities on the
east ooast of Vanoouver Island will
be visited. The trip will be made
early in June and is expected to
occupy nine days.
Canadians Pay Higher
Copper Prices
Canadian manufacturers who
use Canadian copper have to pay
more to the Canadian producers of
this metal than the British purchasers of Canadian copper. Selling in London at 8 cents per pound
Canadian copper cannot, at the
moment, be bought in Toronto
under 9.45 cents per pound.
The explanation of this, G. F.
Allan, vice-president of the Canada
Metal Company of Toronto, told
the Tariff Board, is that in order
to arrive at a price for Canadians
the copper producers first take the
Loudon price, then they add to it
the cost of freight to and from
London. On top of that they add
the Canadian customs tariff. In
this way Canadians buy Canadian
copper as if that copper were imported from the United Kingdom.
New Meeting Called For
Tennis Club
Languishing through lack of
numbers, the annual meeting of
the A. C. L. Tennis Club which
was oalled for Monday evening last
was postponed until Wednesday,
April 11th. Members are requested
to meet in the Recreation Hall on
that evening in order that important business may be dealt with,
and preparations made for the
coming season's activities.

noted yesterday at Alice Arm when
Barney Turbitt operated his tractor
on the streets. Very soon now

Mine Girls Basketball
Team Play 1st. Game
Ralph Swanson's fair protegees
of the Mine played their first hoop
game in the Gym on Monday last,
meeting the Aces in a friendly encounter and making an excellent
showing. The fact that these girls
up to three mouths ago, knew nothing whatever about basketball
speaks volumes for the coaching
they have received from their monitor. Their enthusiasm, together
with a willingness to follow instructions will make them a team
to be reckoned with next season.
The teams: Mine Girls, P. Arscott
1, E. Johnson 4. V, MoMillan, B.
Cannon 1, Y. Cannon, L. Gibb, M.
Clarkson. Aces: J. Pinckney 4,
H. Simpson, N. Salmon 8, D. Taylor, M. Dresser 3, L. Kergin, D.
Rogers 3. .'
In an exhibition game between
Anyox All-stars j and a selected
team from the Senior A League
some good basketball was witnessed. In the first half the All-stars
were held down te> an even soore,
but with fast play,and clever pass'
ing in the second half they brought
their total up to 34, against 15 by
their opponents. The teams: Selects:   Davies 1, Gordon 4, Shields
2, H. Dresser 1, Sanderson 2, L
Gillies 2, Arney 2. C. Dresser I,
All-stars: Falconer, Woodman, F,
Dodsworth, Currie, F. Calderoni 8.
T. Calderoni 13, Steele 8, Swanson
3; B. Gillies 2.
In the third game Mechanics B.
won by default from the Pirates in
the closing minutes of play, through
the refusal of a player in the latter
team to leave the floor when so
requested by the referee. This
game was to decide which team
will meet the Vandal B in the
finals of the "B" League series on
Friday and Saturday evenings,
the battles to be fought as preliminaries to the games with Prince
Rupert. The game was scrappy,
Pirates attack being less fierce
than usual and their shooting poor.
Mechanics, on the other hand
played an aggressive game, Gillies
and Patriok doing good work and
being well supported by the guards.
The teams: Pirates, Ferguson 7.
Scott 3, Falconer 4 J. Dodsworth,
A. Deeth, L. McCarthy. Mechanics
B: Patriok 5, Carter 12, J. Gillies

Mining Claims Will Be
Easier To Redeem
Northern Railway Terminus
Again Opposed
The plans of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company for building a
line from the Peace River Block to
Stewart, received a jolt in the Legislature   last  week.    The subject
was    under   discussion   when the
Pacifiic    Great   Eastern   Railway
petitioned  the   Legislature  for  a
5-year extension of its charter.    H.
G.   Perry,   speaker of the  House
and member  for Prince   George,
spoke strongly against an extension
of the charter.    He stated that it
had given them  a  blanket on  the
whole   North country for railway
development, and that if the charter was extended and the railway
built it would mean the death of the
P. G. E.    Of course, everyone who
is unbiased, knows full well that if
the railway is built the whole north
will not be blanketed by the C. P.
R.     It does   not   mean that the
Canadian  National  Railways   will
not be allowed to tap the Peace
River Country if conditions warrant nor will it mean the death of
the P. G. E.    Last year the latter
railway was operated at a profit,
which is something the bigger railways would be pleased to show on
their balance sheets,  and we are
told that mining is only in its infancy in the Cariboo, so that there
is nothing to worry about in regard
to the future of the P. G. E.   The
blanketing war cry is a new one.
Until   now   everyone was mighty
pleased when a railway company
announced   itself   ready to spend
millions of dollars on construction
work in order to open for settlement  vast   tracts of undeveloped
territory.    It would be a great pity
if the C. P. R.  or any other railway   company   is   debarred   from
building a line from the Peace River
District to Stewart or to a point of J
connection on the C. N. R. east of
Prince Rupert, so that wheat from
the interior can be shipped to a
nearer northern port instead of the
long   haul   to   Vancouver.     Why
should   the hard pressed farmers
be forced to pay for long freight
hauls to tidewater when there is
not the slightest necessity for it?
The mining committee of the
Provincial Legislature has approved
a change in mining laws which will
prove of great benefit to those acquiring crown granted mineral
claims which have reverted to the
government. It was stated that
back taxes on claims that have reverted for a longer period than ten
years amount to $74,000, and it
was considered that the accumulated
taxes was a deterrent to many
claims being leased and crown
Under the plan approved, claims
which reverted more than ten years
ago would only carry back taxes
for ten years. The surveys of
these claims will be retained and
the original owners will be given
ninety days in which to redeem
them. After ninety days anyone
may lease such claims on payment
of $25 per claim and acquire crown
grant by paving not more than ten
years back taxes.

Trappers In Northern Canada
Reaped Big Harvest
Across Canada's vast northland,
from the fringe of the Arctic through
the barren lands and the wooded
country farther south, the fur trade
is booming, according to the Industrial department of the Canadian
National Railways.
Northern traders reaching Winnipeg a few days ago from frontier
points declared the greatest fur
catch in history was in progress.
Erom widely scattered points in the
isolated interior came word of phe-i
nomenal yields. A Fort Chipewyan
Alta., trader already has 3,000 fox
skins, and none in that district
have less than 1,000 skins, traders
said. The stimulation of the trade
has increased business throughout
the north country. Outcoming
planes and dog teams are laden
with pelts.
Old timers of the North said that
according to the established cycle,
the peak year should have come in
1931. It was three years overdue,
but was apparently making up for
its delay in its richness, they declared. The sa.me story was told
in northern Ontario, Manitoba and,

Canoe Trips in Canada
Lakes and Rivers Provide Numerous Attractions
Opportunities for an Enjoyable Vacation Almost Unlimited
SHI HE requirements for a successful and satisfactory trip
by canoe; suitable water,
picturesque country and an
J excellent summer climate,
can be found almost anywhere in Canada. The innumerable lakes and rivers make the
choice of trips almost unlimited.
One can travel for hundreds of miles
on any of the great rivets, journeying from lake to lake and portaging
where rapids impede or heights intervene.    Having   decided   upon  the
kind of trip to be made, whether
one requiring much effort and experience, or one quite free from
rapids and portages, the canoeist has
only to select his route.
Easy of Access
Although railways and the automobile have provided a means of
rapid transport, there are countless
places in the quiet of the forest,
out of reach of either. It is such
places, approachable only by canoe,
that invite the adventurer to .partake of the wonders of nature. The
railways and the development of
good roads have however made the
majority of canoe routes in Canada
easily accessible, and one need not
travel far from the majority of
Canadian cities before reaching the
embarking point of an enjoyable
Forest Beauty
In certain parts one may follow
the streams for a long summer
outing and never see a village or
dwelling, yet civilization lies so
close that return is easily possible.
Waterfalls, rapids large and small,
lakes of singular beauty hidden
deep in the forest, and islands
covered with pine and spruce trees
are among the interesting features
encountered en route. In some
places one may travel hundreds of
miles without meeting obstacles of
any kind.
There is a remarkable contrast between the conventionality of modem
life and the full naturalness of life
in the great forest, where one may
relax, amid the beauty of natural
surroundings. A strange appeal of
imagination comes to one while following the routes of the historic
explorers and contentment prevails
amid the constant change of beautiful scenery.
Fish and Game in Abundance
Canadian lakes and rivers are
renowned for the variety and
abundance of their fish. Brook and
lake trout are numerous, the latter
often weighing from fifteen to thirty
pounds while other species of fish
are plentiful. Eastern Canada is
well provided with waterways, well
suited to travel by canoe. Canal
systems, rivers large and small,
rapids, falls, lakes, stillwatere and
all the requirements for an enjoyable
canoe trip, await the devotee of the
paddle. Whether it be a cruise
through a well settled region, or an
adventurous journey through the
wilderness, the canoeist will find an
almost unlimited number of lakes
and streams.
The waterways of western Canada,
in days gone by, assisted materially
in unveiling the mystery of the
great country between lake Superior
and the Pacific Ocean. Radiating
from lake Winnipeg, are routes of
romantic interest. Nestling among
the mountains of the coast are many
beautiful lakes, also streams that
wind through the hills, where sport
for the angler and hunter may be

"Mow is the time for all good

that summer trip" is an appropriate slogan for disciples of Isaac
Walton these balmy spring days.
A successful fishing trip

otherwise congenial collection of
One of the most interesting fishing streams in North America ia
French River, Ontario, 215 miles
north of Toronto on the Canadian
Pacific Railway. This lordly river
ia celebrated as the habitat of the
fighting muscalunge, one of the
earnest flab known; huge Great
Northern pike, pickerel, an abund
ance of small-mouth and large-
mouth black bass and other finny
prizes. To accommodate sportsmen
and their families, a fine bungalow
camp—a collection of individual
cabins centering around a main
clubhouse—has been erected on a
cliff overlooking the river. Here
the fisherman and his family can
"rough it in comfort," far from
the cares and annoyances of a
work-a-day world.
That big "muskies" are plentiful at French River is proven by
the fact that one recent summer
a  monster  muskie  weighing  65
Srands was taken in the North
hannel at the month of the
Wolseley River. Also, not long
ago a party of Ohio sportsmen
caught, besides their daily limit of
basa, pike and pickerel, no leas
than seventeen "muskies" ranging
from 10 to 38U lbs. In 1926 a "muskie" of 35 pounds weight, 50
inches long and 21 inches in girth
was taken in the main channel of
the French, one mile from the
bungalow camp.
The French River Bungalow
Camp will open June 15 and remain open until Sept. 15. Jack
Strathdee, its genial manager, is
an experienced outdoorsman whose
chief delight is coaching the uninitiated in the art of luring the
fish. French River also has a fine
9-hole golf course so that devotees
of the royal and ancient game who
ue also fond of fishing need not
entirely forego the former sport
in favor of the latter.
