Notes on Anyox Community League
George Allan, the energetic and
hard-working chairman of the Sports
Committee, is busy with the job of
improving the ball ground. Oil is
being applied in an effort to bind
the slag and dirt, and to make a
good playing surface.
A sum of money has been granted for the purchase of boots for the
footballers.    Who can kick at that?
Good news from Bonanza! Bonanza always does things 100 per
cent. They have turned in sixteen
new members for the League, and
in return the Council will introduce
a number of new periodicals to the
:, Bonanza Reading Room.
The work of placing a railing at
the side of the pipline walk for a
distance of approximately 300 feet
just beyond the Coke Plant has
been started.    Visitors to Elk Beach
' especially women and children—
Ijwill appreciate this safety measure.
/From this point onward the dirt
trail will be used instead of the
pipe line. The trail will be clearly
defined all the way to the beach.
Mr. Ed. Ashton will supervise the
improving of this trail
An important thing to note is
that although this precaution as to
the safety of the pipe-line walk is
being taken, those using the walk
do so at their own risk. The Granby officials wish this to be clearly
understood. The same proviso applies to the walk through the Coke
Plant. Everyone should use the
utmost care in making use of these
privileges. Smokers should also
note that smoking anywhere in the
vicinity of the Coke Plant is absolutely prohibited, and great care
should be exercised elsewhere in
throwing away matches, cigarette
butts, etc. Let all co-operate with
those who are striving to practice
A little later on two dressing
shelters will be erected at the beach.
The Mine Council have granted
a sum of money for enlarging and
improving the play and practice
ground near the surface office.
Breaks Arm While Working
At Mine
Tilmer M. Waterland, of the
Hidden Creek Mine, is in the Anyox
Hospital suffering from a broken
arm. While following his occupation
as a barman at the mine a large
piece of rock came away unexpectedly, causing the accident. He is
progressing favorably.
Real Entertainment Is
Promised At Scout
"Got your ticket for the Scout
Concert?" Thus the boys of Anyox
these days, whenever they see a
"prospect." They take a real interest because the proceeds of the
concert, which takes place on Friday the 27th, in the Recreation Hall
will go to their general fund.
Mr. W. F. Eve and Scoutmaster
R. Gale, who comprise the committee for the concert, are doing
their best to make the concert a real
outstanding event, and from the
splendid items to be given there
will be no question on this score.
The Anyox Amateur Orchestra,
under the leadership of Mr. ]. Peel
will give several fine selections,
such as "The Gondoliers," and "No
Nonnette." Mesdames Pynn and
Doelle will give a piano duet; Mrs.
McRae's Dance Pupils will give
some artistic numbers: Mr. S. W.
Barclay will recite. Songs will be
given by Mrs. Pinckney and W. F
Eve; The Dance Pupils of Mr. H.
G. Laurie will present some Scotch
favorites; the Scouts and their patrol
leaders, assisted by Jack Buntain,
will give a humorous sketch. Ross
Oatman will render a cornet solo,
Sid Armstrong will give a violin solo
and as a grand finale the Scouts will
present a special camp-fire scene.
It will be splendid entertainment
from start to finish.

the public will have the opportunity
of witnessing some popular outdoor
sports, also an interesting First Aid
contest between several teams representing the Mine and the Beach.
At 2:30 there will be a baseball
game; at 3:30 the First Aid Competitions; and at 6:15 the first football
game of the season. This will be
between the Celts and the Mine.
Football promises to be just as interesting this year as last, and it is
expected that there will be a large
turnout of fans to witness the preliminary clash.
H. Cathro Wins Golf
A great deal of interest was
shown in the golf tournament which
was held on Sunday last, when 36
players competed. This was a
"match play against par," that is,
the winner is the player who beats
par the greatest number of holes.
Hany Cathro turned in the winning
card, his record being two up on
par. The runners-up were Jack
McConnachie and Dan McKenzie,
who were both one down on par.
At this tournament the winner of
the Lovested Cup for the month
was also decided, two players tieing
for this. They were Harry Cathro
and Dan McKenzie, and these top-
score men will play off at an early
On May 24th (Empire Day) there

Amateur Golf Champion
Of British Columbia
Visits Anyox
Mr. H. Brynjolson, of Victoria,
who is the representative of the Imperial Tobacco Company, arrived
in Anyox on Monday last and stayed over until Wednesday.
Mr. Brynjolson holds the title of
Amateur Golf Champion of British
Columbia, and was the centre of
interest for Anyox golfers during
his visit. Playing over the local
course on Tuesday with Dr. James
and Sid Peters, the champion found
the first two or three greens a
little strange and difficult, but from
then on he grew accustomed to the
conditions and displayed some excellent golf to the large field of
enthusiasts who watched the play.
In the Best Ball Foursome played
on Wednesday evening between
H. Brynjolson and Sid Peters
against M. J. Sheen and Jack
Moffatt, in which the latter pair
were conceded a stroke a hole on
their best ball, Sheen and Moffatt
won by one up over nine holes.
Peters was unfortunate enough to
miss a short putt on the last green
to halve the 9th. hole. In a private match over nine holes between
Brynjolson and Peters, the latter
won by one up. The golf fans who
followed the games were treated to
a nice exhibition of golfing.
Mr. Brynjolson will be one of the
competitors for the amateur golf
championship of B. C, which will
be held in the early part of June.
He will probably pay another visit
to Anyox in the near future.

J. J. Miller Leaves Anyox
After Many Years Residence
After a residence in Anyox of
nearly nineteen years, Mr.- John J.
Miller left on Wednesday for Kamloops, where he will enter the Provincial home. Mr. Miller is a well
known and highly respected resident of the smelter town. He has
worked in many departments of the
plant, and was at one time very
active in social and musical events
in the district. He is now seventy-
four years of age, and for some
little time past he has not been in
the best of health.
Mr. Miller is a charter member
of the Elks' Lodge, and on Tuesday
evening a number of his friends met
in the Lodge Room to do him honor

wish him well.

The price of copper still remains at a ridiculously low price.
For several weeks it has been quoted at 5 3-4 cents per pound, and
last week, for a brief period, touched an historic low of 5 1-2 cents.
It is evident that curtailment of
production by the producers have
not yet succeeded in raising the
price. It seems as though it will
take a longer time than anticipated
before the price is affected by the
curtailment. That prices will rise
due to the curtailment policy now
in force is certain, as the higher
cost producers are inclined to further
curtail production or close entirely.
As more mines close and the output is lessened, prices are bound to
The Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power Co. Ltd.
are weathering the adverse winds
of low prices far better than was
imagined. The annual report of
the company for 1931 which we
published in our last issue, reveals
the fact that their financial difficulties could be a lot worse. The report for last year showed that operations were conducted at a loss; as
did also the report for 1930. But
on December 31 st, last, cash assets
on hand totalled $2,470,000, which
is equal to about $5.50 a share.
Operating at a loss, however, can
not be carried on indefinitely, and,
moreover, cash assets dwindle
when a steady drain is imposed on
Speaking of "cash on hand."
If more people had provided themselves with a nest egg, when times
were good, instead of recklessly
spending their money, conditions
now would not be so bad as they
are, and not so many people would
be forced to exist on government
The word "government" mentioned above, also brings to mind
the fact that if the different governments throughout Canada had also
practiced a little economy during
Elks' Beach Is Now Ideal
Bathing Spot
Nature, plus willing hands that
have worked in clearing away logs
and bush, has made Elks' Beach a
desirable spot for picnicers. To
get there safely, and to be able to
disrobe and dress in privacy are
matters which will be attended to
at once.
At the high part of the pipe-line
walk just beyond the Coke Plant a
substantial railing will be placed,
and beyond this point a trail will be
made, apart from the pipe-line walk"
so everyone can travel in safety.
A dressing shelter and other conveniences are planned for the beach.
Visitors will note a big improvement round the beach through the
brush and debris being cleared
away This work was done by Ed.
Ashton last fall. There is no doubt
that this bathing beach will be visited by many people this summer, as
it is a really attractive little spot.
Victoria  Holds Record For
Ship Tonnage
According to figures compiled by
the Dominion Information Bureau,
Victoria was in 1931 visited by
more ships than any*other port in
the Dominion while Vancouver recorded the greatest shipping ton
age. Victoria received 4,997 ships
as against 4,709 for Vanoouver and
1,699 for Montreal. In tonnage
Vancouver was first with 12,321,
000; Victoria second with 9,382,000
Halifax third with 8,184,000, and
Montreal fourth with 7.237,000.
Victoria's record was probably due
to the number of ships calling on
their way to Vancouver, Seattle
aud Puget Sound ports.
Flin Flon Property Will Not
Close Down
No consideration has been given
by Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Company Limited, to closing
down the property shareholders

by R. H. Chaiiiiing, Jr., president,
The board  of directors was re
In answering questions, Mr,
Chaniiing stated that all the copper
on hand had been sold. Operat
ions were proceeding in the same
manner since the annual report
was issued, but he pointed out that
their income was lower owing to
the fact that the price of copper
was now 2l/i cents under last year's
average. The gold content in the
ore remains about the same.
British Columbia has long been a
heavy importer of agricultural and
Foodstuffs. Last year, however,
foreign imports of these commodit
ies fell from $5,139,000 in 1930 to
SI,807,000, so that British Columbia has become nearer to being a
self sustaining province than at
any time in the past 20 years-
Imports from other provinces also
fell from $14,296,000 in 1930 to
§11,612,000 in 1931.
Pre emptions In B. C. Show
The number of pre-emptions
issued in British Columbia in the
first three months of the present
°ear was 350 as against 200 for the
first quarter of 1931, or an increase
of 75 per cent. As these figures
cover the midwinter period they
represent the lowest activity.
During the spring and summer theiji
filings should greatly increase.
Report of Alaska Juneau Gold

In 1930, among the Canadian   Provinces,
British Columbia was the leading producer
of Silver, Lead and Zinc.
In this Province, 45 per cent, of Canada's
silver, 97 per cent, of the lead, and 93 per
cent of the zinc were produced.
British Columbia has produced over $1,260,-

About 200,000 square miles of unexplored
mineral bearing lands are open for prospecting.

Thrills abound in "Touchdown"
—the first football story ever turned out by Hollywood without the
use of the conventional Dick Merri-
well finish. Touchdown is grand
and glorious entertainment—a
sumptuous dish for the football film
fan—a feast of life and action for
everybody. It is a story about
football life as it affects three types
of persons—the business man who
supports the team; the coach who
jets a high salary to win games;
md the young athletes who play the
game. Women find a new kind of
heroine in Peggy Shannon as the
football coach's sweetheart. It is
a great thrill-picture that you should
not miss.
"The  Front Page"
Tuesday,   May  24th.
Adolphe Menjou, Pat O'Brien,
Mary Brian, E. E. Horton, and
"The Front Page" is the greatest newspaper story ever made. It
has made a hit all over the country.
A United States picture, it is full of
human appeal, humor and pathos.
There is a particularly tense scene
in which the prisoner escapes and
goes into the press room when the
hero is the only one there. He
overpowers the prisoner, hides him
in a roll-top desk, and endeavors to
get a scoop for his paper. The
humor of the picture is supplied by
the reporters, and the dialogue is
quite clear. You'll enjoy this
splendid story. Don't miss it

The Man who needs
Life Insurance most
is tlie man who
cannot get it!
■ Ask any of the 400,000 men who
■ last year were "turned down" by
■ the life insurance companies when
they wanted insurance.
An accident, or a few days of illness often convert a good risk into
• rejected applicant.
The policy you can buy to-day
may not be obtainable next year.
Wise men are buying all the life insurance
they can while they are still insurable.
Three billions of insurance is carried by the
Sun Life on the lives of men who refuse to
take the chance of finding they ore ineligible
for insurance.... when they need it most.
The time to insure is NOW
