and  friends, sat down to a most
I delightful supper, which was great

i| lengthy program  of music, sing
1 itig and dancing was given. .
The  violin quartet by pupils of
Mr. Heppeler—Maisie Evans, Bar
bara Lee, Dora Peterson and Amy
McDonald-*—was   nicely rendered,
and two vocal items by Mrs. Pinckney, who was accompanied by Mrs.
J.  McMillan,  were  well received.
A piano duet by Beryl aud Glen

Meetings Held In Connection With School
A regular meeting of the Alice
Arm School Board was held in the
School House on Thursday evening.
Those present were: E. Moss,
chairman; 0. Evindsen, secretary;
M. Donald. As a public meeting
hud been advertised to directly follow the School Board meeting, a
largenumber of ratepayers attended.
Among the business transacted
by the School Board, was a resolution which will be forwarded to the
Superintendent of Education, drawing his attention to the depressed
state of business here, and the necessity of classing the district in as
low a class as possible. The new
amendment to the School Act,
which was passed recently in the
Legislature have changed the classification of school districts entirely.
Districts are now classed as A, B,
C, D, and E. The lower a district
is classified the higher the precent-
age of the school teacher's salary is
paid by the government.
Fo/fbiving- the meeting of the
School Board a public meeting was
held. E. Moss was elected chairman and A. D. Yorke secretary.
After the new classification of
School Districts had been explained
discussion ensued in regard to the
best method of forwarding a petition by the taxpayers of the district
to the Superintendent of Education.
It was finally decided that the chairman appoint a committee of three
to draft a petition. Those appointed were: H. F. Kergin, A. D. York,
ind Wm. Cummings. This committee was instructed to state exactly how bad business conditions are
in this district at the present time,
and the great need of low classification. The petition will be
presented to the School Board and
forwarded hy the secretary to

Community LeagueHave
Busy Season Ahead
This Year
Ladies Hold  Freak  Golf
On Friday, April 29th, a "freak
tournament was held by the Ladies'
Golf Club. For this event everything was topsy turvy. Wrong
clubs were used for certain shots,
making for difficulty and a good
deal of diversion. However, despite
this, two ladies tied for first place.
These were Mrs. Roy and Mrs.
Cormier, and rather than undergo
the ordeal again they "tossed" for
it, Mrs. Roy being first and Mrs.
Cormier second.
Great interest is being taken in
these weekly competitions.

for the purpose.
A deputation from the Hidden
Creek Tennis Club waited upon the
Council with a request for another
court, to accommodate the large

mprovements to the existing court
and buildings.

The sudden plunge from plod
ding through the winter's snow to
the warm sunny days enjoyed
during the past two weeks, has
stirred the summer wanderlust in
us all, and we long to enjoy the
open air and sunshine following a
long dreary winter. At Alice
Arm the trees are in leaf, early
wild flowers are in bloom, and
robins and humming birds flit and
dart hither and thither. The local
gardeners are turning over the soil
and planting has already commenced. Mother Nature, is
clothing herself in her summer
garments, and the world seems a
much better place in which to live
than it did a few months ago.
The people of Anyox cannot
enjoy as fully as those of Alice
Arm, the beauties of spring and
summer, for the smelter smoke has
killed almost all the vegetation.
They can, however, bask in the
warm sunshine, and indulge in any
kind of outdoor sport that they
desire. Golf, tennis, baseball,
football, boating and hiking are
the attractions for those who wish
to spend their leisure time out-of-
doors during the sunny days of
The above-mentioned sports are
a fine tonic, and should be taken
full advantage of. Anyox people
are fortunate in being able to indulge in many outdoor sports, but
the lack of green trees, flowers,
grass and clover is felt, and in
order to obtain the full benefit ot
the summer's sun these are essential.
The district of Alice Arm has
been described as one of the
beauty spots of the north coast.
It certainly is. In addition to the
unrivalled scenery, there is splendid trout fishing, bathing, boating
and hiking facilities, ft is an
ideal place for the people of
Anyox to spend a quiet, inexpensive and enjoyable holiday. Plan
to visit Alice Arm during the
summer months. You need a
change and the cost is trifling.
Schedule for Anyox Ball
Football: Tuesdays and Thursdays, same as last year.
Baseball: Wednesdays and Fridays.
Open Nights: Sundays, Mondays and Saturdays.
This schedule is effective immediately.
Practices, etc. may be arranged
for these evenings and for open
evenings upon application to the
Secretary of the Community
Tuesdays and Thursdays arc definitely allotted to football, and
Wednesdays and Fridays to baseball.
Pictures for Today and
Robert Montgomery, Dorothy Jordan,   Ernest   Torrence,   Hobart
> Bosworth
« Robert Montgomery makes his
bow as the star as the sailor hero,
in this new Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer
production. He contributes a most
engaging performance. Dorothy
Jordon, as the Admiral's daughter,
plays opposite Montgomery, and it
is upon the romance between the
sailor and the admiral's girl that
the story hinges. The climax is in
the burning of an ammunition
barge in which the hero-deserter
redeems himself with the retired
admiral. From the opening flash
of the battle fleet until the final
glorious fade-out the picture moves
with an amazing swiftness. Saturday's showing.

Great Railroad Has Fine Police Force
White gloves, part of their official dress, are
especially appropriate to members of the
Canadian Pacific Railway Police, not only for the
smart touch thus added to their blue uniform, but
because they are emblematic of the force itself; an
organization of spotless reputation and unfailing
courtesy. Not only is this picked body of men,
uniformed and ununiformed, the safeguard of the
property of the world's greatest transportation
system and its thousands of patrons, but its members
are friends and mentors to countless travellers in all
part of the Dominion. Wherever the company has
an interest, be it a great terminal, a wharf or a vast
freight yard, "the man in blue" is to be found.
Many of the constables and their officers are ex-
servicemen and at their head is Brigadier-General
E. de B. Panet, C.M.G., D.S.O., A.D.C., a distinguished Canadian soldier with a splendid record
as a staff officer during the Great War. The force has
won many trophies for first-aid work and also in

the Canadian police revolver championship for the

Butte Mines Close Down
Anaconda Copper Mining Company has temporarily shut down its ,
Badger and Anselmo mines in
Butte, due to copper conditions.
Both of these mines have been
large producers, but remaining operations on the Butte hill will give
about half time employment to from
3500 to 4000 men. Commensurate
reductions will be made at the reduction plants at Anaconda and
Great Falls. Announcement was
made that the Butte mines are
maintaining their full share of production in proportion to other Anaconda properties. The only Butte
mines now operating are the West
Colusa and Mountain Con.

San Francisco was en fete recently when the Canadian Pacific
liner Empress of Britain arrived
there from Honolulu for a two day
stay on her 128-day winter cruise
of world ports. About 80 additional passengers joined the ship
at San Francisco and another fifty
at Los Angeles for the last lap of

Canal to New York.
"The Mineral Position of the
British Empire" is the suggestive
title of a paper by Dr. Charles
Camsell, Deputy Minister of
Mines, which will be the leading
topic for discussion at the annual
meeting of the Canadian Institute
of Mining and Metallurgy, in
Montreal on April 5, 6 and 7. This
same topic will provoke much discussion at the forthcoming Imperial Economic Conference.
Belief that economic conditions
were gradually improving and that
the forthcoming Imperial Economic Conference at Ottawa would
be one of the big historical events
in the development of the Dominion, was expressed by Senator
Gideon Robertson, former Minister of Labor, who Bailed on S.S.
Montcalm from Halifax recently
as Canada's chief delegate to the
16th annual conference of the
International Labor organization
at Geneva.
Canada's rapid change from an
exporter of raw minerals to an
exporter of finished and semifinished products will be well set
forth at the annual meeting of the
Canadian Institute of Mining and
Metallurgy in Montreal on April
6, 6 and 7. A number of important
papers will describe the new
Bmelters and refineries that have
effected this change.
With five steamers in service

lake and rail route subject to delay
at Port McNicoll pending the first
Changes In the management of
Maritime Province Bummer hotels

will shortly become official. Joseph
A. Cashman who managed tne
Lakeside Inn, Yarmouth, N.S.,
and is at present in charge of the
Place Viger Hotel in Montreal,
will become manager of the Algonquin Hotel, St, Andrews, N.B., and
he will be succeeded in the management of the Lakeside Inn by
Jeremiah Daley, Jr., now chief
clerk at the Cornwallis Inn, Kentville, N.S.
Among deeds of heroism at sea,
the rescue of the 27 men of the
salvage ship Reindeer by volunteer
seamen of the S.S. Montcalm recently will rank high. Ably seconded by Captain Rothwell who
steered the Montcalm to make ■ .
lea for the lifeboat, and with very
heavy seas running, the men under
Second Officer Knight put through
"as pretty a piece of work as one
could wish to Bee," was the comment of J. G. Ross, of Moose Jaw,
