Anyox   Rovers   Hold
Christmas Banquet
On Wednesday evening Decern
ber 20th. the Rovers had tlieir annual Christmas Dinner. At seven
o'olock all the Rovers met in the
Den and when all were present,
the ration party was detailed to
visit the homes of Rovers Loudon,
T«abo, Kirby, Watson, Pinckney,
WhWe the necessary cooking had
1.,■»>■clone. Shortly after the re-
n,, ii of the rations, the tables were
groaning with deliriously cooked
turkey and all the necessary good
thingR that go to make an excellent dinner.
Many thanks are due to the
Mothers of the above named Rovers
for their kind assistance with the
cooking. After all had partaken
uf aa much as possible, Rover Mac-
Carthy in a few well chosen words
presented "Chief" R- 0. Cutler and
assistant "Chief" J. Taylor with
silk scarves as a small token of
appreciation. Rover Mate Kirby
presented Senior Rover Mate Teabo
and Mr. D. Evans, the coach of the
Rover Basketball team, a beautiful
tie in appreciation of the work they
had done for the Rovers. Guests
of the evening were Mr. H. Bamforth, Cubmaster, and an old Rover,
Rover D.  Miller,  Mr.  D. Evans,
It was a good thing that the
Gym. was well built, for when the
Rn.-ers joined in a sing-song the
hall reverberated to the sound of
lusty voices.
A very pleasant surprise was
.tyrodnced when Scoutmaster R.
Gale announced that he would like
to say a few words and had a Vio-
trolarolled in as a gift from Mrs.
Gale, himself and the Soouts.
Needless to say it was royally received. Chief Cutler received the
Hift on behalf of the Rovers with
suitable words of thanks,
Tlte Rovers had assisted the
Scouts in preparing and re-conditioning the toys for the Scout Toy
Shop and information was received
that some seventy-five children in
Vanderhoof were in need. As all
the toys had been sent out, it was
voted to send $25.00 to Vanderhoof
to help in some small way to give
Christmas cheer for those children.
Everybody voted the evening a
huge success and are already looking forward to a bigger and better
one next year. 	
In our recent report of the election of officers for the Anyox Branch
of the Canadian Legion, we failed
to mention that Mr. Frank Henderson was elected secretary for the
coming year. The secretary deserves special mention, instead of
omission, for on him devolves 90
per cent, of the work of the organization. '

mour, of the Pacific Salvage Com

containing over a million feet of

a ninety-mile gale along this coast,
but without result. The raft was
being towed to Powell River from
Moresby Island.
McConnachie started off from
Prince Rupert on Wednesday the
13th. Not knowing the whereabouts of the raft they cruised along
the coast and round about several
islands, then over to Queen Charlotte Islands to Rose Spit and down
the east coast as far as Tlell, back
from there to Stevens' Island, down
Banks Island and round Bunilla
Island to Princess Royal and back
to Prince Rupert.
McConnachie then arranged to
go out on Friday with Dr. J. T.
Mandy to the west coast of the
Queen Charlotte Islands, but was
stopped by fog and snow after
about an hour's flying.

Christmas 3s Here Again
One more day and Christmas will
be here again. Christinas with all
its feasting and merry making; its
handshakes and exchanges of goodwill; the opening of presents and
the reading of Christmas cards and
letters. What a lot is crowded
into this one great festive day.
Despite depressed trade conditions
throughout the world, Anyox and
Alice Arm will celebrate Christmas
in the usual traditional manner, for
the hand of adversity has dealt
lightly with us during the past four
vears in comparison with some
other districts, and while some of
us may not be as prosperous as a
few years ago, there is no abject
poverty in our midst. We therefore have a lot to be thankful for
and everyone will celebrate Christmas to the utmost of their ability,
and we feel sure that all will spend
an enjoyable day on Monday next

Although Christmas Day is the
anniversary of the birth of Jesus
Christ, a Yuletide festival was observed by the Scandinavian people
long before the Christian era. Yule
was the name of two months, December and January. The meaning
of the word was noise and clamor
and the celebration took place when
the days began to lengthen. The
ancient Britons also held a big festival near December 25th. long
before Introduction of Christianity,
and the early Christian Church incorporated the festival into the new
religion to commemorate the birth
of Christ. How many thousands
of years a festival has been held by
our ancestors at this time of the
year is hard to tell, but time has
not dimmed the enthusiasm and
today it is celebrated as joyfully as
it was during the daujuof Christianity and by our heatm^-fbrebears
in the dark and distant ages, and
we hope our readers will enjoy a
Merry Christmas in this year of

Warriors  Spooks And
Bon Cons Win On
Three hoop games were played
on Friday the 15th. this being probably the last of the basketball
games for this year owing to the
number of functions taking place
in the Gymnasium during the festive season. Pirates gave a good
exhibition against the Warriors,
tlie latter scoring 27 points against
19. Scott shone brightly for the
losers, playing a clever and resourceful game. The Warriors
have a fine combination, tlieir short
quick passing beiug most effective.
Good checking featured the game
on both sides- The teams: Pirates:
B. Parsons, A. Deeth 1, D. McDonald, Scott 12, K. Falconer 2, Geo,
Kent 4. Warriors: Hill 4, Dan
McDonald 3. Dominado 8, Harrison 10, O'Neill 2.
Although the game between the
Spooks and the Aces was a little
one sided, the younger quintette
gave the Spooks plenty to do,
checking very effectively. The
Spooks won 27-13, with K.
Eve as top scorer. Nelly Salmon
played a stellar game for the Aces,
being right in the thick of it all the
time and notching 11 points. The
teams: Aces, D. Taylor, N. Wenerstrom, D. Rogers 2, J. Pinckney,
N. Salmon 11. Spooks: Mrs.
Phillip 4, M. Dresser 4, L. Dresser
3, K. Eve 13, M. Cloke 3.
A fast game was witnessed between the Bon Cons and Trojans,
the former winning 32-19. Trojans were minus F. Dodsworth and
F. Gordon was absent until after
the breather. Close checking at
both ends kept the scoring down,
and it was not until well into the
second half that the Bon Cons piled
up their majority. S. Steele played a great game for the millmen,
coming to light with his old time
net finding ability and notching
15 points. Currie and Hortot
Jack were good for the winners.
McDonald and H. Dresser did fine
work for the losers, who were unlucky in points scored in proportion
to shots. The tearrljb'j/'ffrojans:
McDonald 3, Dresser T/TShields,
Gillies 5, Cloke 4, F. Gordon. Bon
Cons: Hill 2, McLeod 1, Currie 7,
