waa a very amusing dialogue "Tne
professor's Dilemma." Frances Wadel
rh the "Professor" proved himself
equal to the occasion and did especially well. Joyce McRae, asj "Pepper,"
was the star, and brought forth much
merriment. The remainder of the play
was rep'.esented by Gladys McRae.

Mr.  Taos,   Dickie  writes!
Drawing near the ujose <>f tho fifth
year after Lho Great War, we cannot
avoid the reflection that all our hopes
of a quick recovery from the disasters of that greatest of all human
conflagrations are )lH futile and
wrong as were those earllerexpeo
tatlons at 'the beginning of tlie war
pointing to Uh conclusion In throe or
six   months.
TIiq way of the toller and rccon-
»t motor has been hard. He has
everywhere been struggling against
an adverse tide. His labors seem to
him to have been mostly In vain, and
this not only In 'the Irecked and mortgaged and bankrup t territories of
Europe,  but   in   Canada,    the    United
'When They Hare Gone"
The past comes up—childhood
days—happy hours by the fireside—their hopes and Joys—
and  trials,   too.
You can keep the memory of
their names forever fresh by
giving some little part of th*
blessings you now enjoy towards a permanent memorial
In   everlasting   stone.

and   Lhon  No-o,  and  >«lso  NOT,
Soma tht tiffs, bosldes money and
prosperity, we must ail ways keep In
mosHn an tSlt yloma oqo t t
mind, One is that this ia Just tni
same B|,ud old world as u over was.
It has not gone back, It has not deteriorated, it spins and aaraena
along it* Bmoothly as two thousand
years ago, if there is anything
wrong about It anywhere It Is man's
fault. He is to blame : be did It ,
he   throw   the   monkey   wrench.
I would go su far as to say tills,
Hint It' a man were not a stupid fool
ana a kind of brute, full of hates and
passions and greeds and prejudices,
and 1f ho \-e:*o even fairly decent,
and kind ami moderate, and looked
out for tho other fellow always a
little no ,matter who tho other follow was) or where lie came from, and
didn't ti*y to make out that he, himself, was the one man In all lhe
world whom God had elected to bu
rich and well fed, and happy und
highly honored—Jthen, tiulto surely,
there would go peace, and everyboly
would have an abundance 0f overy
useful thing and a fair amount of
happlneaa And then, It Is to be
hoped, everybody would go on performing his useful duties > In tne
world just the same as when he was
obliged to toll and scrimp and live
meanly In order to maintain his existence.
I don't know what the future ha*
In store for us. Easy prosperity does
not seem closo at hand. There may
be lots of struggle and work ahead.
But why worry. Our sons and brothers had courage to go to war and
endure everything up to death for a
cause, as sons and brothers In all
ages have done. Surely, surely, we
who are still on the soil of our country at peace, may find courage to
overcome such wretched Jmposters in
tho way of evils as high prices, low
prices, over government, under government, unequal distribution, want
of empoyment, and no on.
Our hardships! will have done u&
cood If wo are of the right metal.
If we ai e not, the sooner We pass
Into oblivion the better*. The world
today is one great big field of opportunities, as It has been since nwn
came upon it. Without the great
difficulties there can be no great
triumphs—therefore   no   heroes.
In conclusion, my innocent Christmas wish for all friends and readers
of tlie Gazette Is that their Chrlstma.-,
dinner may cause them a pain <In the
stomach! all year long if they do ifat
In 1924—(1) Improve a little on last

enough to follow out the principles
of the Treaty of Versailles with regard to labor legislation, and an eight

lanuary 1, 1325. The new law is a
comprehensive one and is expected to
lead the way for all tho other province.-;, Except fo;- the objection
that the Act will not function for n
year, labor appears well satisfied,
llowevor, labor has a way or demanding a great dual tn the. way of ro-

Government has gone a long way In
ibis regard.
The strongest objections agalusi

wore put forward by industrial loaders and capital, and tho direct, claim
was made that Industry would prac-

Monday next, Dec. 31st, will i»**o
the passing—but in name only—of
the Bank of. Hamilton, and from Jan.
2nd this pioneer1 Bank will be known
as The Canadian  Bank of Commerce.
It was due to the enterprise and
activities of tho local Board of Trade
that this Bank was started in our
midst some fifteen years ago, and In
a short time a site was purchased
and a, j fine edifice erected. In the fire
of 1916 the structure was wiped out,
and three years later the present
building was erected. Although not
pretentious,, It can /be said that it
stands as one of the moat up-to-date
office- buildings that can be found In
the rural districts. The Bank has
enjoyed the patronage of the old-
timers mid its full share of the new
comers of the district, and no doubt
with the present change and under
the name of a Harm, perhaps, move
widely known, even a larger cllentolle
may  he  Its share. j     ,
it Is with general approval that
announcement has been made that
Mr. K. S. Hopper, the present Incumbent, has been retained as manager
of the newly merged Bank, his occu
panoy for) the past five years having
no doubt been sufficiently satisfactory to warrant continuation as manager., When asked if lie expected any
change in the present staff, Mr. Hopper replied, that, apart from temporary assistance from headquarters of
tlie Canadian Bank of Commerce, Van
couver, no changes were contemplated

trilmtnry territory is set for great
advance and progress, and the Ite-
cord has set Its plough, metaphorically speaking, to the furrow of the
needs, the really bigger needs, of tlie
citizens as a whole.
Somewhat fully alive to Agassi/':

prompted us to start the Record urges our leaving no atones unturned to

ALBION FOR 1923
AND DURING 1924
"No news is1,good news," Is the old
saying, but first, In conjunction with
tlie Editor, we muse wish ail the real
dents of Albion "A Bright and Most
Prosperous New Year." We cannot
fall to look back and not see how we
have prospered during 1923. In the
first placq our dreams of a Community Haiut have ben realized. A hall
of no mean structure, and a buidldlng
which being used right will give to
the residents the means of many a
pleasant evening. This hall has opened1 up the road to many exploits.
We could have our own little Agricultural Show yearly, a Poultry Show
Community Gatherings, etc. In fact,
the benefits' of the hall are tao numerous to mention. Then again we
have 'prospered |ttn as much with the
C.P.R. In giving us a station building.
True, it Is not,a big elaborate affair,
but quite in line with the needs of
Albion for a few years to come, and
we hope for the year 1924 we will
have gone ahead some more. We need
the electric power, and need ia very
badly. So let uq again put our community spirit together and I venture
to say the Electric Light will ba a
certainty.
Looking back over the year 1923,
we have lost two of our neighbours,
namely, Mr. Josiah Gatley and Mrs.
M. Baker. Buti though they are gone
from our midst they are certainly not
forgotten. So altogether Albion has
been blessed in many ways. May we
all put our shoulder to the wheel and
make the year 1924 one of which we
will be proud.
The Children's Xmas Tree came
and is goney and indeed Mrs. L. Man-
zer is tobe congratulated on the ex-
treme efforts she made and its
sultant success. Mrs. Manser's shrine
ta certainly amongst the children,
both  n and out of school.
We wish all our friends the Compliments of the Season, and earnestly hope
that the New Year of 1924 will bring
Happiness and Prosperity to all the good
citizens of Maple Ridge Municipality.

-SNTSBTAIViaVT
All the rooms were well decorated,
and the teachers and pupils spared no
pains to make everything pleasant for
the* parents and for the pupils themselves.
PRINCIPAL   MORROW'S   ROOM
Th0 program started at about 9:40,
and most of the visitors were there
by that time. Will to Moore acted as
chairman, and proved hemself well
fitted for tho honors conferred upon
him by his school mates.
Tho pupl|s sang songs and gave a
good number of recitations. They did
their work faithfully, and delighted
the parents with the successful rendering  of  their  selections.
After this, Jean Bally, Prances Bennett and Lily Dennis took the parents around and showed them the
drawings and Xmas scenes1 the pupils
had placed on the blackboards, and
this work was decided "excellent" hy
tho visitors.
Mary Heath, Helen Buselle, Dorothy Bruce und several others, prepared the little baskets of candies for
Placing on Christmas tree, as well as
putting on  the presents.
Oswald Glondenning acted as Santa
Clan;-', and with the assistance of a
number of pupils, distributed tho presents and candies to the children and
parents. Me was a very cheerful
and amusing Santa Claus and acted
his   part   well.
MR.   BROWN'S ROOM.
The program opened at 9 a.m. NlchOl
McRae   In   the   chair   "appeared   auite
at  home.    The  classes  rendered  "Tho
(Maple Leaf  Forever."
Recitations by Theodore Q-reyell.
Phyllis Chaplin, Marshall Saunders.
Eddie Clarke,  Alice Whlttaker, Nlcltol
McRae,  Joo Bruce.  Louis* Young, were
splendid   showing   good   talent.
Songs wore snug by Clara Gill is.
Berntde Edwards; Alice Whlttaker,.
Although very well BUng, Kvan Probert and Nelson Lovell sang a duet
that out-olassed the whole program,
causing a great deal of mirth, ami
the boys have eploudtd voices,
Tho c.|as« concluded 'ho program
by   singing   "O   Canada,"
After the concert each child rocolv-
cd a basket of candy and nuts, whllo
boxes were passed around among tho
visitors.
Tho blackboards decorated by tht*
different classes were excellent. Th*.
youngest classes' boards, although not
so well done in some ways, showed
great Imagination, which is a splendid  feature.
MRS.   ELSIE   &   MISS   LAXTON
The two lower rooms joined forces,
and the outcome was well worth hearing. The chorus and motion songn,
of which there were several, showed
wonderful control on the part of the
teachers, Mrs. Elsie, I think, having
great talent in that line, has implanted the co-operativo spirit, the
voices  being  very  pleasing
A really good dialogue was rendered!) y several little girls. If they do
all the things well they confess to
like, they* will be a great help In the
future, "sweeping, dusting, sewing,
etc..
Grade II. In dramatization were ex-
oollent, Fransetta Inkman being especially clever. The recitations and
eongs, of which there were a great
number, were all so good it would
take too mueh space to give them
due   credit
Mr. Wm. Green acted as chairman
for   this   room.
A tree of gifts, prettily decorated,
was   dtstrlbuted,   and   afterwards   the
pupils received each a bag of candy
and somo gift. The teachers passed
candy  among   the  guests.
POST OFFICE STAFF
Tlie Record bus been asked to name
the Post Office stuff.
Mr. Culvert is postmaster and Ills
veteran assistant is Mr. T. IS, Singleton, familiarly called "Old Tom,"
Mrs. Tyrell and Miss Sumptl'o count 1-

Following afre the scores for the
Junior Cup : Les Sumpter 307. R. Andrews 288\ Oj Bates 268, A. Elso 160.
Tho - latter* did not finish his course.
The Otub was unfortunate in losing the Lytton & Lucas Cups to Lyt-
ton Club in! 1022 after two very close
contests, but istilJl more unfortunate
this : year, as they were not in a
position, financially, to proceed to
Lytton and bring them back. However, they are still holders of the
Manson Cup, which was won in 1914
and has not been challenged for since.
They hope some Club between Port
Moody and Hope will have the courage to contest the ownership In 1924.
This Cup was given, by Wm, Manson
late MP.P. fo:- Mission, in 1912, and
was to be shot for every year by
Clubs between those two distant
points. Agassiz won tn 1012. Port
Moody In 1013 and Agassiz again in
1914, Where aro all the Ulflo Clubs
gone?
What's the matter with Port Moody?
Where Is Mission ? Someone said
"dead," another said "sleeping," and
yet again someone said "stewed." Hlse
up, Mission, get up a Club, come to
Agassiz, and, find that although there
Is no "stagger juice store" we aro all
lively, every blessed one of us. Membership roll is now open for next
season's membership. Apply to P.
Sumpter(Capt-)   to  Sec.  O.  Ogllvle.
