Don't Fail To See "Old
English" Tonight
"Old English," the Galsworthy
play which proved so tremendously
popular when played on the stage
by George Arliss and which has
been made into a Warner Bros, and
Vitaphone picture, shows at the
Anyox Theatre Saturday.
"Old English" can be compared
best perhaps to the epochal "Disraeli" of last season, which introduced the genius of George Arliss
to the talking picture world. "Old
English" is considered by Mr.
Arliss to be his finest characterization.
Incidentally, it is the first Galsworthy drama to reach the talking
screen and it is understood that no
little persuasion was needed to secure from the English playwright
the permission to produce his play
as a picture.
A distinguished cast supports
Mr. Arliss in "Old English" among
those included being Ivan Simpson,
Doris Lloyd, Betty Lawford, Leon
Janney, Harrington Reynolds, Reginald Sheffield, Murray Kinnell,
Ethel Griffies and Henrietta Good-
Commission Controls
Anyox Basketball
A radical change has been made in
the control of basketball in Anyox.
This is the formation of a Commission instead of a General Committee
as heretofore. This Commission,
which is composed of R. L. Healy,
George M, Lee and H. R. Taylor,
will have complete control of basketball. They will draw up the
schedule of games for the season
and have full charge of all matters
affecting the various teams. With
such a capable and influential com
mission, players and public alike
can be assured that the game will
be well looked after, and can anticipate with confidence a season of
good basketball.
Miss Kathleen Eve Wins The
Tennis Championship
Playing a brand of tennis which
excelled any of her previous efforts,
Miss Kathleen ("Bubbles") Eve
won the Ladies' Tennis Championship of the A. C. L. Club by defeating Mrs. J. Smith 6-4, 7-5. Mrs.
Smith put up a good fight, playing
with great care and precision, and
Miss Eve's masterful forehand
drives were a treat to watch. The
match drew many spectators.

E. MOSS, Editor and Publisher.
October 3rd. to 10th. has been
fixed by the B. C. Products Department of the Vancouver Board
of Trade as British Columbia
Week. The week will be the
climax of a campaign urging
people to buy B. C. goods, and
producers to advertise them.
Invitations are being extended
to every Board of Trade, Chamber
of Commerce and newspaper in
the Province, asking them to join
in the campaign and make it
British Columbia wide in its
Mr. H. G. Fowler, Chairman
of the B. C. Products Department
and head of the committee directing the campaign, stated that he
believed that if the public attention
could be focussed on the vital
necessity of buying B. C. goods,
both agricultural and industrial, it
would be a large factor in increasing the circulation of money and
alleviating hard times.
He does not overlook the depression, and would not suggest
that "Buy B. C. Goods" is a cure
for all ills, but he believes that
it is probably the foremost means and explained that it gets its name
within   British  Columbia's reach from the fact that it does not hatch
improving conditions locally.
By P. Powell
Ten below in the middle of summer! After a brisk-three mile walk
on a warm day we are ushered into
the great cold storage chambers of
the B. C. Cold Storage Plant at
Prince Rupert. The capacity of
this huge plant, which is the larg
est of its kind in the world, is seven
million pounds. Around us are
stacks and stacks of fish of many
kinds and sizes, all frozen solid. In
a "natural museum" section we
were shown a huge halibut, 9 ft.
high, 50 inches aoross, and 251 lbs.'
in weight. "Gosh!" we exclaimed,
and our guide picked up a head,
the fish to which it belonged having weighed 340 lbs. Some hali
but! This was the largest ever
caught in western waters. Next
is a blue nose shark, with wicked-
lookiugfhis and teeth. Nearby is
the head of a halibut with two
mouths, the only one ever seen.
Another freak which is handled
carefully by our guide is a halibut
which is black on both sides, ihe
lonly specimen of its kind ever
known. Fastened to boards are
such interesting objects as a devilfish with eight tails; a beautiful
starfish; and a sunfish.
Our guide showed us a dogfish,
its young from spawn but carries
Referring to the difference such them as do animals. This distinc
a policy would make to agriculture tion among fishes is shared only
alone, Mr. Fowler pointed out that with the shark. We enquired as
in 1930, $19,000,000 worth of to the weight of the largest salmon
agricultural products had been
brought into the country. This
money, if it had been expended on
products grown in B. G, would
have made a vast difference to
the farmers of the province.
"If even half of the people in
British Columbia could be persuaded to buy B. G products,
both agricultural and industrial,
half the time," he said, "it would
do more to bring back prosperity
than all the large merchandising
orders the B. C. Products Department can ever hope to direct into
the province."

better, doctor, but I'm still short
of breath."
Dr. Killtim—I can stop that
completely after a few more treatments."
ever brought in aud were told that
it weighed 89 lbs.
The processes of beheading the
fish, weighing and packing them,
"Glazing" those to be stored,
wrapping in paper to exclude the
air from those being shipped, were
all carefully explained. We were
shown the frozen herring, packed
in solid blocks, which are sold to
fishermen for bait at $30.00 pel
ton. The slump in the fishing
industry makes this bait very slow
moving, and tlie plant will probably be left with a huge quantity
on hand when the season ends.

Rise In Price of Copper
Expected In Near
Copper industry has reached the
state where a slight improvement
may be expeoted within a few
months, according to the Brook-
mire Economic Service Inc., whioh
has tabulated copper consumption,
for the major consuming industries
in the past three years. Increased
consumption is not expected in this
year or in 1932 to establish a
return of marked prosperity for
the copper industry, but to show
small gains over current levels.
"There is no longer any question
but that copper is cheap," says a
Brookmire statement. ''Few, if
any 'producers, oan show profits
with copper at 7J oents. a pound.
Nothing will bring about a reduction in output and a consequent
halt in the trend to higher levels of
refined inventories more surely
than a continuance of non-profit
price levels. We therefore expect
a more drastic curtailment of mine
production in the mouths ahead.
Blister stocks have shown an uninterrupted decline since last October and are now the lowest since
August, 1921. A change for the
better in demand for oopper could
bring about improvement rather
quickly. This has not yet appealed, however, and we expect
another increase in refined stocks
to be reported for August."
