New Park Is
"Community Playground" Is
Name Chosen For Children's Play Ground
Tlm eity of Crnnbrook and Ita children can now boast of :i now park
und playground, for on Wednesday
the "Community Playground" waa
formally opened, nnd tho oquipmenl
lately installed through tho efforts
of the Rotary Club, assisted by other
service organizations! was handed
over to tlte eity. The ceremony accompanying the opening was well
planned and conducted. Promptly
at three-thirty tho children of the
various schools of the city arrived,
and forming themselves in coinpnnies
in front of the bandstand, where,
surrounded by hundreds of citizens,
they led in the singing of "0 Canada," under the direction of Miss
As a member of the Rotary Club,
and on behalf also of other service
organizations, Mr. Alan Graham, in
an appropriate address, handed over
to the care of the city the playground
equipment, which had been purchased
and installed by them, the cost of
which being roughly estimated at
$5,000. The greater portion of this
was the result of the big Rotary carnival held lost year, which was well
patronized by the citizens of Cranbrook, the Rotarians being assisted
by the Gyro and thc Kilts' Clubs.

"President Graham, ladies of the
I.O.D.K., officers nnd members of the
Rotary Club, Gyrus, Kiks, Great War
Veterans nnd Native Sons of Canada:
"Ab Mnyor of the city. 1 gratefully
accept this handsome gift of equipment for onr children's playground,
which has only heen made possible
by your unse'fish and tireless efforts
in the interest of the community welfare of the city.
"I quite realise tliat the acceptance
carries with it a certain responsibility. It will be the duty of the
couneii to see that due care is taken
of this equipment, also thai the
grounds are properly maintained.
The Council has already taken steps
along these lines and 1 am confident
lhat succeeding Councils will not fail
in their duty in this respect It will
only he possible for us to carr) this
work out effectively by the
tion of the children thomsetves, and
I look with confidence for thai co
operation. We look to them tu use
and enjoy these grounds t.i the utmost  extent, but we   feel  we have a
right to ash ihtiii imi to nbuBe the
privileges, which thanks to your ef
forts, have been provided for Hum.
"I  would like it  to be generally
understood that  these  grounds ore
primarily for the use of children not
over public school age.     The equipment   will   not   stand   tlte   strain   of
the use by high school pui
sons of more mature age.   Sli..uld il

A conference of provincial government forestry men was held in
this city the end of last week, the
purpose being to explain fully to the
rangers and their assistants the best
system of operations in combatting
outbreaks in the district, and hand*
ling the men who are hired to assist
at the fires, along with various changes in the working methods which
will be employed this season. When
the full force of forest rangers and
Iheir assistants nre engaged, there
will bc about thirty-five all told in
the Kast Kootenay district. This
territory extends from the south end
of Kootenay Lake through to the
Alberta boundary and north from
the railway belt town to the border.
It. C. St. Clair, of Nelson, District
Forester, was in attendance at the
conference, along with E. C. Orchard, who is the director of outdoor
operations, and Mr. Brown, the range
commissioner for this district, also
of Nelson, and F. H. Pym, district
supervisor, of this eity.
One change of considerable benefit to those who are engaged to fight
fires has been made, whereby the
forest rangers themselves have authority to pay the men by cheque
right on the job, so that now men
do not need to be kept waiting more
than two or three days at the outside for their pay, whereas formerly
it was quite possible, owing to pressure of work, that two or three
weeks would elapse until the cheques
could he issued from the government
To   Make   Observation*
An attempt is also heing made this
year to co-relate the humidity of the
atmosphere to forest fire conditions,
Constant readings nre to be taken
with an instrument which records
the humidity of the atmosphere, and
the effect of changing conditions at
lhc fires will be noted accordingly.
In Ihis way it is thought that data
may he compiled showing what conditions mny be expected from the
changes in humidity.
An instrument will also be put Into operation which determines the
average velocity of the wind, so that
the progress of fires can be guaged
Forty Firei So Far
Up to thc end of last month, no
less than forty forest fires had been
reported to the local forestry office,
and the end of last week with the
unusually warm weather, was an exceptionally busy time, no less than
Fourteen fires being reported within
the space of two or three days. None
of these were considered extremely
serious and all were brought under
control within a short time. One
which broke out ou Thursday a short
distance from town was watched with
some misgivings, travelling extremely rapidly during the afternoon,
when it was fanned by a high wind.
Another fire was reported along the
Mission rood, hut fortunately did not
last. A fire ot Kamb Creek between
Lumberton and Moyie was under
control last week-end. Probably the
most serious of them all wos the fire
beyond Kimberley on the property
of the Otis Staples Lumber Company.
Many fires are reported to have resulted from land clearing operations,
some anxiety being shown to burn
slashing before the prohibited season
for burning opens this month. Several of these fires spread into adjoining property, and forestry men
had to be culled to assist in con
dolling them.
The cooler weather has had a good
effect on the fire situation and rain

"Kimberley Follies" Preient
Fine Show In Parish Hall
Friday Last
Friday evening lust Kimberley
stepped outside the confines of her
town limits and showed the part of
the district that the place is possessed of musical and other talent
of un entertaining nature of which
possibly many were unaware. The
organization known as "The Kimherley Follies" featured a successful
first night in their home town, and
appeared at the Parish Hall here
presenting a program of solos, duets,
quartettes, readings and dances from
recent revues which was an eye-
opener to most of those present.
If insistent demand through hearty
applause for the repetition of every
number is uny criterion, the affair
could not have been more successful,
added to which is the opinion of many
competent local citizens that it was
one of the best things that has heen
given in Cranbrook in many years.
Were it not for the fuct that the
services of two of those taking principal parts could not be had for some
months, the entertainment would be
undoubtedly repented in Cranbrook
in the near future.
A Finithed Performance
The affair wus in the nature of a
pierott show, in which the ladies and
gentlemen of Kimberley took part,
and was under tne direction of Mr.
K. Webber, who, whether or not related to the illustrous stur in the
theatrical firmament, showed he was
no novice in the matter of staging
a first elass performance. Hard work
on his part and also by his talented
associates in preparing for the performance resulted in a finished production, and each and every one in
tne company are to be congratulated
on their excellent work, the hearty
applause accorded them indicating
in uu small manner the appreciation
of thc Cranbrook audience. With
all numbers so enthusiastically received, it would be unfair to make
comparisons. We feel it not out of
place, however, to refer to the excellent work of Mr. Len Sells, brother-in-law of Mr. Webber, who cume
ull the wuy from New Denver to
assist in the performance. Mr. Sells
is an accomplished comedian who
gave u performance which alone was
worth the price of admission. It
was also pleasing to note that the
Cranbrook audience in recognition of
the assistance given the recent Gyro
"Beauty Shop" by Mrs. Marsden of
Kimherley, and doubtless through the
pleasant recollection of her rendering of the song "Carrisimu," gave
her a fitting ovation when she up-
peared to sing the same selection.
In all fairness to Crunbrook music
lovers it is only right to say that
few were acquainted with the fuct
that the performance was one of such
genuine merit, or the hull would not
have held the crowd; as it was a nice
sum wus netted for the organ fund
of the Anglican church, Kimberley.
in which interest thc performances
were given. Those in the enst were
as follows:
Soprano—Kathleen Abbott, Kthel
Griffiths, Hazel Marsden and Evelyn
. Contralto—Celia Bride, Molly Gougeon  nnd   Edna Thompson.

the rustic gates at Lake Loiuse will
be swung open, permitting motor
travel across the great continental
divide into British Columbia through
the Kicking Horse Pass. It is felt
that the new road between only a
local highway with a dead-end at
Field, the better plan would be to
wait until the completion of the
Field to Golden road in 1^27 for a
formal opening which would attract
much publicity and many representatives from tbe United States and
Canadian  associations.
Since more than thirty thousand
iars passed through the park gates
last summer and each year sees an
increase in motor travel by fifty per
cent of the preceding year's total,
Heavy traffic over the new load is
anticipated, much heavier travel than
nny of the other highways enjoyed
during their first year of operution.
Three  Survey Lines
It was not until three survey lines
were run by the government from
Lake Louise to Hector that the final
route of this section of the road was
decided upon. One route fo!
the flat of the water level, the other
two the higher bench lands, the second alternative of these swinging
closer to the chateau at the east end.
The road was finally constructed
along the high benches, skirting the
base of the mountains near Lake
Louise, the new route meeting the
road from the station to the lake
about three-quarters of a mile frnm
the lake.
From its junction with the old rood
near the chateau, the road turns
west, passing through virKUi timber
for the first five miles, a series of
struight stretches and very few
curves. Then it gradually drops from
the bench to the grent continental
divide, passing a few yards from the
monument to St, James Hector, who
sixty-five years ago crossed the divide when he discovered tbe Kicking
Horse Pass as the most practical
route for Canada's first trans-continental railroad.
After crossing the divide, the new
highway follows the lower levels of
the beginning of the Kicking Horse
river to Lake Wapta, where it swings
across the railroad tracks to tlie lake
shore facing the bungalow camp.
Hero it will meet the motor road
from Lake O'Hara, which is to he
completed by next year.
** Ute RailroM Roadbed
For three and a half miles from
Waptn, tlie new road follows the old
railroad grade on the right of Kicking liorso Canyon. In 1HH-1, the
Cnnadian Pacific Railway construction gangs cut a way for Canada's
first trans-continental divide along thc
edge of the canyon in the solid limestone. This was abandoned in 1918,
when the spiral tunnels were opened.
But in that year the government
realized the advisability of using the
pioneer grade of the railroad for a
motor road sometime in the future.
The park officials bought tlie bridges
from the railroad as they stood. The
wisdom of this became evident last
year during the construction of the
road, no costly large bridges being
Steep Gradet
Before tlte invention of airbrakes
the ride by rail down the old grade
on board heavy trains proved thrilling to say the least, with the possibility of the brukeman losing control of the train. A number of old
grades running sharply up-hill from
the side of thc grade used by the
motor road tell their story of the
pioneer days of railroading. Whenever it appeared as though a heavy
train was getting away on the 4,4 per
cent grade, the attendant switchman
ot the safety switches was signalled
to throw the switch, sending the train
sharply up-hill to a stop,    Then the
new cosed it down grade ngain, stopping at the next switch if necessary.
Five engines were used in hauling
passenger trains up this grade. When
constructing the road, engineers
found cinders u foot deep along the
old grade, indicating the amount of
oal used before the spiral tunnels
were constructed.
Easy   for  Cart
Mthough proving very extreme
grades in railroading, the old grade
is easy for modern motor ears, with
much more power in proportion to
weight than the old-time trains,
Cars, in good working order, will be
able to make the grade on high, being aide to maintain a good speed, ua
the curves are all gradual.
Railroad passengers passing
through the spiral tunnels have
queer feeling of "there you are and
there you aren't," for one moment
Ih.' train appears to he going in one
direction, then darkness, und tlu1
I rain is going in lbe opposite direr
tion after emerging from the tunnels,
Instead of following the slope from
top to bottom, going the one direction
on the descent, the spiral tunnels en
able the train to double back and
make thc grade in a zig-zag course
First it drops a few feet on a gradual
grade far above the old grade, turns
round in passing through thc circular
tunnel below the Cathedral Crags,
follows thc slope back again, dropping a few more feet, then turns
around again in the second circular
tunnel, Mount Ogden. completing the
grnde into Field. This reduces the
grade lo 2.2 per cent, which reprc^
senls im difficulties in railroading
Motorists ou the new road will
have au opportunity to examine this
engineering feat from a point of
vantage on tho new route, with the
first grade and tunnel above und the
second tunnel below, the new road
passing  between  the two.
The road leaves the old grade below the second tunnel, drops to the
liver level, crosses the Kicking Horse
river and follows tin motor road on
the right-hand side to cross another
bridge, leading directly into Field,
Motor Road Shorter
The new motor road from Lake
Louiso to Field is four miles shorter
than the railroad, and in travelling
from Luke Louise to Field » motor
car can easily make the trip in one
half hour less time than passenger
trains, without exceeding the park's
speed limit.
For concentration of scenery on a
short route the new rond surpasses
any other motor rond in the park,
jVssint: as it docs through th»' backbone of Ihe continent of North
Beauty   Spot*   En   Route
Famous Snow Peak avenue, a two-
mile straight stretch of road through
thick forests of pine, spruce and
cedar, begins a few miles from the
natural bridge on this route, deriving
its name from the snow-capped
peaks rising to the clouds nt each
nd of the road, Emerald peak to the
ruth and Goodalr to the south.
Emerald Lake itself, whose name de-
iotas the color of the clear wuter
cnusod by mlcrscoplc gluciul silt in
suspension, lies at the end of the
rond ut the foot of Mount Burgess,
Mount Wapla and Mount President.
Takakkaw  FalU
From Field, the motorist can visit
Takknknw Palls, ten miles up the
Yoho Valley, a deep mountain valley
between ranges of glacier covered
peaks. After following the narrow
gorge of the valley for seven miles,
the motor road climbs eight hundred
feel in a very short time by a aeries
of switchbacks. Then heavy timber
and the end is reached at the ten-mile
post near the famous falls, truthfully
named Takukkaw Falls, meaning in
the Indian language, "it is wonderful."
Slowly but surely the direct route
from Banff to Vancouver nears completion. The opening of the new
road will iold sixteen miles.
Field to Golden in   1927
Thc Field to Golden route, a distance of '.ll, miles, will be completed
1927. At tho other end, the
Caribou Trail up the Fraser Canyon
will be opened this year.
This only leaves one lurge gap in
the direct route, the Donald to Revelstoke gap. The old railroad grade
could be utilized over Roger's Pass,
but as this is over 4,300 feet high,
ith a winter snowfall of 42 feet,
only about three months' travel would
he possible each year. It is twice the
distance following thc Big Bend of
the Columbia river, approximately
lot) miles, but construction would be
fairly easy, and this route would open
h timber and mineral resources
along the Columbia north to Revelstoke. The construction of a road
up the Canoe river nnd connecting
with a road through the Yellow
Head Pass from Jasper would open
Canada's two most important niOUll
tain parks to Canadian and American
travel via Vancouver.
On the occasion of hia visit to
Klmberloy last woek, for the purpose of holding confirmation service there, the Bishop of Kootenay,
Rt. Rev. A. J. Doull, D.D., wrote
the following on his impressions of
thc place.
"This has heen my fourth visit to
Kimberley during a period of ten
yeurs, and it has been a remarkable
experience to witness its most rapid
growth even from an outside point
of view.
"I heartily congratulate the peopli
of Kimberley upon the prosperit;
which has been grunted to them and
trust that the Mountain City muy
■ever continue to enjoy that prosperity which has called it into being.
"And yet I hope that Kimberley
will be wise and remember wherein
lies its true greatness and prosperity must consist.
"It is not in anything material that
the greatness of any country or city
is to be found but in the character of
the men und of the women who are
its citizens. Righteousness exalts a
city. Sin is a shame and a rebuke
to any people. Kimberley will be*
come a really great place if its people
are careful to train and develop the
best that is in themselves and their
children, and strive not only to dig
for thc treasures that the earth conceals but to bring to the surface the
hidden treasures of which our nature
is capable when brought under proper influence? and right guidance.
"If thc people of Kimberley sup
port and establish and maintain
those institutions which are working
for the true welfare and uplifting of
thc community, if they seek to restrain evil and promote good then it
can become an example to other cities
of this province, it is all possible because you ore still very young and
your future lies all before you.
"Whatsoever things are true, whatever things ure honest, whutsoever
things ure just, whatsoever things
are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whutsoever things are of good
report, if there be any virtue, and
if there be any praise, thinks on
these things, do these things, and thc
God of peace shall be with you to
moke your future sure."

McPhail will be the centre of Moyie's
activities this coming summer. All
summer und perhaps for summers to

Moyie Lake. These tailings are the
discard from former operations in
the old Moyie mill, which treated
ore from thc St. Kugene mine, The
scow Agnes, after drawing the tail
ings from their cold wet bed will
convey them to the new concentrator.
Here they will be regrouud and subjected to flotation for zinc and lead.
The old wooden mill was burned down

grown up—a phoenix in concrete
and iron.
Thc christening ceremony was performed by Stan. Gray, superintendent of the new mill. T. V. Lord,
his assistant, George McKay, superintendent of construction, and A. G.

From the present operations another tailings pond will result. Another large deposit of discard. And
who knows whether in thc years to

dredged up once again, and once
again pulverized and metallurgized
for a value not realized now, but
yet to be recognized and utilized.

Former record in the Canadian
automobile industry have been shattered, according to a statement just
issued by thc Dominion bureau of
statisitcs. In 1926, 11 Canadian factories produced 124,458 passenger
cars, 22,144 trucks and 15,368 chas-
s, making n total of 101,1170 cars.
'This represents an Increase of 22
per cent, over the production of 11(24
and 10 per cent, above 1923, the
best previous year, when the total
production reached 147,202 cars. The
total value of production including
some parts nnd some repair work
amounted to $110,835,380 us compared with $88,480,418 in 1924.
During the yenr, two companies
stopped production and one new company started operations, sn that
there was only a reduction of ono
company in the number actually operating.
Taking the figure of Canada's
population as 9,304,200 person*, according to the registration <>f owners
nnd drivers, it is apparent thatr one
out of every 18 persons in the Dominion has a car, as compared with
one car to every six persons in the
United States for thc same year. In
1925 the number of passenger cars
registered totalled 080,095; trucks
74.48!'; busses, 778; and dealers
4,123, making n grand total of 720,-
085 registrations.
Excluding automobile engines, imports of cars and parts during 1025
amounted in value to $85,240,298.
There were 13,486 passenger ears
valued at $12,855,1140; 1,146 trucks
worth $1,693,1169, and $20,000,989
worth of parts imported into Canada
in 1925 and nearly all of these came
from thc United States.
The export shipments from Canada were the highest on record, the
total value of COTS and parts exported
being $39,417,614, an increase of
about eight millions over 1924 and
about two millions over 1923, Exports of Canadian made passenger
cam numbered 58,005, which was
about 35 per cent, of the total Canadian production. Trucks exported
totalled 16,146 und the parts export
ed were valued at $6,372,728. Australia and N'eu* Zealand were the first
and second best customers of the
Canadian factories. These were followed by British Enst Indies, Dutch
East Indies, Strmts Settlement, British South Africa, Great Britain, Argentine, Brazil and Uruguay, in the
order named.

more peacenble udministral ion of
Lieutenant-Governor Heady tho time
seemed auspicious for attacking the
powers of the council, and a deadlock between the two bodies resulted.
The dispute, of course, was tlie traditional one nb jut money hills, and
it lasted in a most acute form for
fifteen years. In 1830 a despatch
was received by Lieutenant-Governor Young ordering him to fptan an
executive apart from thc council, In
1847, in Lieutenant-Governor Huntley's time, the assembly passed nn address praying that the executive
council should ba deemed the constitutional advisers of Her Majesty, and
tbat the members should be compelled
to festgn when they could not approve the nets of her representative,
It was also suggested thai from the
lower house four members of the
executive should be chosen who
should be responsible for the sets of
the Governor, In 1849 Lord Grey
sent u consolatory despatch, in which,
however, he was obliged to defer
the installation of a complete system
of responsible government. In this
lu- had the concurrence of his predecessor, William Ewnrt Gladstone,
The assembly was obdurate and refused to grant supplies, nnd at the
close of the session thc lieutenant-
governor, Sir Donald Campbell, was
obliged to declare: "I should fail in
the performance of my duly. If 1
did not express my disappointment1
of your premediated neglect of ymir
legislative functions "
In the following year some progress
made. The Crown n
were commuted and the cost
ivil list was undertaken by t
riimcnt. The (rat.chise was
d in 1863, so that it became
universal, and Sir Alexander Banner-
man. the newly appointed lieutenant-
governor,   dissolved   the   assembly,
with the intention, ss some said, of
defeating the government. In 1858
Sir DomTnlck Daly, being lieutenant-
governor, it was the turn of the
council to complain that the executive
did not contain a single member from
their order, nor did it Include any
Catholics, although they numbered
thirty-two thousand of the population. Five members were addsd ami
fi 1862 the legislative council made
led Ive. The struggle for responsible
government was at an end. In time
all this paraphernalia of legislation
was found too costly and cumbersome and the two houses were combined into one house of thirty members, of whom one half are elected
by property-holders und the other
half by property holders and franchise together.
The Confederation Movement
Un lo the year 1871 Prince Kdward Island was without a railway,
and no formal proposal had been
made that one should be built. On
April .'! of that year a resolution was
submitted that a ine should be built
throughout the length of the island.
A committee was appointed to draft

Hritish Columbia mny soon produce
phosphates in largo quantities for thc
enrichment of prairie noils, in thc
opinion of Hon. William Sloan, minister of mines, who announces the
discovery of Inrge deposits of the
valuable fertilizing mineral in thc
East Kootenny district. Tho reported deposits nre situated some distance east from Fernie.
Legislation pnssed at thc last ses
sion of the provincial house made
possible the expected developments,
according to Mr. Sloan, for previous
to that time it was Impossible for
prospectors to stake out largo enough
claims to make operations worth
while. Now it is legal to .stake
claims one square mile in extent
and under such conditions there is a
good opportunity for profitable de<
It is stutcd that the Consolidated
Mining &'Smelting Company of Canada Limited, thc largest concern of
Its kind in western Canada, will hc-
cotne interested In the phosphuln industry.   The association of this com
pany in the project is taken to mean
that the deposits will he thoroughly
prospected nnd that if they are
proved to be of economic Value the
capital required will be available to
put the industry on its feet.
.Successful operation of this industry would requite a large capital outlay and it is believed that only a few
of the existing mining corporations
in the west are strong enough to
adopt the project. Sulphuric acid is
used very largely in the manufacture
of phosphate fertilizer. At present
this is a waste product at the Con-
solldoted smelter at Trail, hut having this sulphuric acid ns a byproduct, and able to dispose of it as
ii fertilizer would prove a great economic saving and allow production
on a more encouraging basis.
Canada at present import> phot*
phntes from the United .States in
large quantities, and as tho world demand for this commodity is increasing steadily, efforts are being made
in every civilized country to discount
the needs of thfl future.
In Canada this problem will present itself for solution within a few
years, Mr. Sloan believes. The agr1*j

but the lands cannot continue to
yield without thc necessary chemicnl
elements lieing returned to them.
Whero wheat is so largely grown

event that sufficient fertiliser ran he
supplied for the maintenance of thc

ANOTHER industrial tie-up in Great Britain has
developed, and it has a serious aspect when il
is officially announced that the attitude of the trades
unions is regarded in the light uf an attempt to
undermine constituted authority: in other words,
that urbanized lahor has pitted itself against parliament, the body through which all sections of the
British public may give expression to their opinions.
The general strike lias originated over the
decision of the governmenl tliat the time has arrived
when condition-, in regard to thr national finances
are such that hoiuising of the coal industry cannot
be continued. The mine owners in turn say that if
this is so their costs must lie reduced, and they
desire somewhat longer working hours and a corresponding lowered rate of wages for the miners.
The miners refuse to entertain this, and the trades
union council, hacking them up, say the government
should proceed to put into force the spirit of the
report of the commission which lately investigated
the coal industry, and recommended tacitly, at least,
some degree of nationalization for ihe industry. Not
one of the three parlies to the dispute shows any
sign of weakening, and in the meantime tlie transport workers, electrical, iron and .steel workers and
others are out in sympathy wiih the principle of the
strike.    ,
It goes to prove thai temporizing measures
are not always the must successful in lhe long run.
Bon li sing the coal industry was adopted as a means
of averting a similar struggle, and was only intended at that time as a temporary expedient. But
once the step was taken, reverting to the former
order of tilings became a different matter. The
British public pays the price anyway, whatever is
done—in cash if the bonus ing is continued, and in
disrupted conditions if the strike is prolonged.

THE present is an appropriate time when thought
and effort should be directed to the aiding of
nature by planting trees, flowers and shrubs in the

of the people of Cranbrook in the planting aud culture of such ornaments and ardormnents will bring
certain joy and satisfaction.
It is manifestly unfair to ourselves, and more
particularly to those of the future, to fail to do
that which will make this eity more attractive. Nature is entitled to help from mankind.
Make Cranbrook so attractive tliat the homes

A COMMUNITY organization in the city has
been largely responsible for the transformation of a barren city block into a community park

fivm Our Changes
The astonishing thing about the new campaign
fur Bible reading in the schools is not that it ia under
waVi hut that it is necessary.
We speak of this as the year of Our Lord, 1922,
in the Christian eru, and in this yeur, we, a Christian
people, du not allow our children to hear the Lord's
Prayer or any of the other words of tho Bible in the
public schools.
The conflicts of theology may exist and multiply,
but the main concern,of the people of Alberta, who
profess to be Christian men and women, who ut least
believe in the teachings of Christianity, is with the fundamental truths which they have in common. Of these
truths, which are the property of ull Christian people,
we learn from the Bible. We open the sessions of our
legislature with prayer, giving acknowledgement that
this is a Christian province, but we refuse to permit our
state schools to recognize what we believe is the Word
of (iod. The State takes charge of the children of Al
berta during their school years, nnd in the hours they
are at school is responsible for the training they get. In
those formative years this province declines to acquaint
them with any of the words of the Bible.
.We profess astonishment when Trotsky's Russia
banishes Christian teaching from Russia. Why be astonished at Russin? There is enough cause for amaze
ment   in   Alberta.
The world is so full ot trouble, with conflicts of
ull kinds, nnd numbers of people everywhere who scarce
ly know how to live. Perhaps we have got too far away
from what is honest, and logical, and straightforward,
and eourugeous. The Bible might not hurt this generation u bit. Our farmer government, while striving to
establish a better type of government than we hnve
ever hud before, should be bold enough to say that the
Hihlc may be read to the children of Alberta. Or its
members should be forced by a powerful public demand
to the point of openly declaring themselves against the
reading of the Bible in the schools of this professedly
Christian province.—Calgary Herald.

Time Yet to Get An
Entry Into the Big Campaign
Contestants Starting Now and Ernestly Exerting Themselves Will Have Good Chance of Landing Among
the Leaders.
The race is onl With all the Kast
Kootenay district agog with interest,
the big prize campaign goes into full
swinig now with the first publication
of the standings of entrants. It has
been heralded right from the opening
announcement as one of the biggest
things .ever to strike this section
of Canada.
Every person in this vicinity is
more or less directly interested in the
Campaign, for it is the opportunity
of a lifetime. Think of being able
to earn n fine new automobile in a
few short weeks. The Crunbrook
Herald is making this offer in appreciation of the support and loyalty of
the many hundreds of its renders und
friends and to reward friendly effort
to Increase st ill more rapidly t li is
growing circle of supporters,
Detail) of Campaign
Many persons ure getting the details of how the Crunbrook Herald
ia going to give $2,600 worth of valuable prises and commissions to tlte
people of tins vicitity. Have VOU
asked nbout the details yet? Would
you like to have a fine new automobile ull your own without one cent
of cost to you? The best way in the
world to get it is by entering your
name in the big $2,500 race and going right after subscriptions.
The magnitude of the awards offered for spare time effort has created a wave of enthusiasm which grows
in volume daily. Realization thnt it
is a fact that nn ambitious man or,
woman enn win n brand new auto
mobile just by obtaining the support
of their circle of friends and acquaintances during the campaign, is
growing in the minds of the people.
The Incoming nominations represent
part of the territory covered by the
Cranbrook Heruld, yet the possibilities of the campaign have barely been
touched. Some communities have ns
yet no alert representative in the
line up of candidates.
Unexcelled Opportunity
If you will notice the standing of
the participants in the campaign .as
they uppeur in this issue, you will
notice the big possibilities for any
one of the present candidates to surpass the leaders by putting forth just
a little effort during the next few
days. Likewise, hu entirely new entrant could send in his or her nomination and in n short time secure
sufficient subscriptions to make sure
of leading the entire field of candidates in the next issue of the paper.
Present participants will have to
show greater speed than they have
heretofore exhibited if they expect to
keep the laurels to themselves, With
Buch wide open opportunities beckoning to ull, there will be sure to be
new candidates coming in. They
muy even be thu leaders next week,
Unless those now participating get
into immediate net ion. Those who
have faith and determination to
mount all obstacles and whose un*
wavering ambition koeps them at
woik, when others nre trying to discourage them and get them to refrain from working, will be thc big
winners at the close of the campaign.
Muny people, too lazy to put forth
winning effort, nnd too cowardly to
face leal opposition will lose out because they lack determination i
enough to step in nnd win. Make
sure that you do not let anyone discourage your candidacy and deter
your efforts to better yourself by
winning a new $1,006 Overland Six
Early Work Meam Much
Those   who   hnve   been   thinking
nbout  starting  but  have  done  no
more thnn  thnt, hnd hest get busy
without   further   delay.    The   campaign is of short duration and there
is absolutely nothing to be gained by
waiting,   while   much   can   be   lost
Obey  that  impulse, right  now, und
send in your nomination blank today,
It will be found in the campaign ud-j
vertisement in today's issue.
Those who
and not started active work are overlooking a .splendid opportunity, for
early work means severul times as
much as thc same amount of effort
later on. Every subscription order
taken while others sleep means just
that many less to get later in the
competition, and just a few more
orders than the others hnve, means
the ownership of one of Canada':
most beautiful automobiles.
Big EXTRA Offer
Entrants are fully aware thut i
distinct advantage is to be gained by
starting at once to obtain auto winning Credits. By coming into the
campaign now, a candidate not only
has a maximum of time in which to
insure success, but an untouched

New entrance examination regulations which will affect every public
school pupil in British Columbia,
have been announced by Hon. J, D.
MacLean, minister of -di'cntion.
Under a system which the department will put into effect at the annual summer examinations, admission to high schools will be almost
entirely on the recommendations of
teachers, instead of being on the
basis of written examinations.
Promotions will be recommended
by a board consisting of the principal of the public school involved,
the principal of the high school in
the same district and the municipal
or provincial school inspector. At
present promotions are recommended
by the principal of the public school
alone. While in the past only 00
per cent of the pupils of any school
could be promoted by recommendation, in future there will be no limit

found necessary to amputate the injured member above the ankle. The
injured man was rushed to the Golden General hospital, where the amputation was performed, and on Tuesday morning was removed to the hospital at Revelstoke in charge of Dr.

Cubs  Beat Tiger*
On Friday night the Cubs and the
Tigers clashed in a thrilling game.
The first two periods were the Cubs',
who scored three to the Tigers' nil.
Art Wallace, the old wnr horse, was
going strong and mude some thrilling
saves on thc defence. In thc third
period the Tigers netted three. The
fourth period the Tigers netted ono
in brilliant combination work. The
Cubs being one up, fell back on defence nnd Art Wallace held the bull
trying to stall for time. The Tigers
worked hurd but the close cheeking
of the Cubs proved too much for
them nnd the whistle ended the gnme
in favor of the Cubs by n ti-l score.
Goals—1st period, Patterson; 2nd
period, Klines 2, und Bruin, Burlier
and 8. Moffatt; itrd period, Worden,

"Shorty" Harris, Rankins, Patmore,
Worden, Patterson.
Lioni Loie to Tigeri
Nothing of lhe jungle but the
names was noticeable in the game lost
Tuesduy between the Tigers and
Lions. A clean gnme with no penalties und good sporting spirit characterized" the contest throughout. A
spectaculnr rush in which HorriB
scored for the Tigers within thirty
seconds from the face-off set the
pace in the first period, a minute
later Large scoring for the Lions,
"Stonewall" Barnes stole the rubber
and carried it down to the Tigers'
lair where a sharp scrimmage ensued,
which nearly scored again for the
royal beasts. For a few seconds
things looked serious for the Bengal
carnivora till someone shovelled the
bull oui into the field, where "Fatty"
Harris found it and made a pretty
pass to Stnn. Moffat, who scored with
n good shot. The Lions were roaring and soon hnd the ball in the
Tigers' territory. MacFurlnne pocketed and carried -it almost to the
Lions' goal-crease, but was there held
up and had his run for his trouble.
The first period closed with Lions
one, Tigers two.
The second period was not quite
so tense, though Atchison scored
early for the Tigers. "Red" Moore
sought to retaliate with a fine long
try, nnd Dick Large gave the Bengals
some nervous moments. But the
tables quickly turned when the bal)
was passed to Harris, who drew the
roaring Lions home with a try which
just failed of scoring. A few seconds
later again the rubber was in Harris'
stick and this time he shot true. The
period had given two more goals to
thc Tigers, with cold consolotion of
some good trys for Che Lions.
The third period was a nervous one
for the Tigers. The Lions were out
for meat. Flett's quick sprint and
long shot set the pace, though in his
eagerness to score he overlooked the
chance of a good pass. Stick work
at lhe Tigers' goal saved them for
the time, but again and again the
Lions were at their door. C. McBurney displayed some good stick
work and a lively sprint. When the
ball came up-field, Freeman, from
point, missed a pass which would
have given an almost certain goal.
Jack Barber attempted to steal the
ball, but Fiett persuaded him otherwise. Stan Moffatt and McKinnon
were colled out of a loving embrace
by the referee's whistle. Again the
ball was carried to the Tigers' territory, and Dick Lurge scored for the
The fourth period was featured by
the chill wind which numbed the spectators and slowed up the ploy, no
score being made. Thc game closed
with goals scored by Tigers, four; by
Lions, two.

Rev. J. J. Peterson, superintendent
of the Scandinavian immigration
mission, Vancouver, has been in the
city this week. He was the preacher
at the evening service in Knox church
on Sunday night, the congregation
including n number of Scandinavian
people who had been specially invited
to the service.
Mr. J. J. Peterson based his remarks on the raising of Lazarus from
the tomb. He also spoke briefly of
the work the Scandinavian Mission,
which he represents, was doing in
Vnncouver. The now settlers from
Scandinavian countries were taken in
by the mission, which provided food,
beds and ulso assisted these strungers
in procuring work. Classes in English were nlso conducted in order to
assist in mnking the immigrants more
familiar with the  English language.
He slated thut he was ready to cooperate with anyone who believd and
preached the Bible.    His appeal waa
to all Scandinavians in the district
to support and extend the fuith of
their fathers, which had mnde their
countrymen noted throughout the
world. Mr. Peterson, whg represents
the Presbyterian Church in Canada,
wns very much enjoyed, nnd it is
hoped thut he will soon return to the
district again.
Mr. Peterson's mission works under the auspices of the Presbyterian
Church, and they receive every year
mnny immigrants from the Scandinavian countries, who are assisted in
getting a start in their now country.
It is estimated there ure between
(10,000 und 70,000 Scandinavians at
present in this province, nnd tbe nim
of the mission at present is to reach
us many communities us possible
where there are numerous Scandinavian settlements, and establish
missions there where some religious
service mny be held.
Every evening this week, Mr. Peterson has been holding special services in the Knox Church, which have
been conducted in the Scandinavian
tongue, and some Scandinavian music
has also been provided. On Thursduy nnd Friday evenings, Mr. Peterson will be at Kimberley, holding
meetings there, and on Saturday evening at 8 o'clock at the K. P. Hall
here he will appear in Cranbrook to
give u lecture on behalf of the Scan-
dinnviun Brotherhood of East Kootenay. This will be given in their
native tongue, nnd the subject will
be "Co-Operation nnd the Mark of
the Beast." Further services may
be held at Kimberley on Sunday, but
arrangements have not been completed.

Wednesday evening the final meeting of the winter session of the Cranbrook Brotherhood took place at the
United Church, when a most Interest
ir.tr »nd profitable time wal had. The
' members had as their guests either
their wives or their lady friends, the
visitors enjoying the hearty meal as
all women do when they are freed
from the preparing of it themselves.
The dinner was an excellent one.
Following the dinner, Mrs. F. M.
MacPherson favored with a vocal
solo, "Out of the Dusk," to which She
sang as nn encore "The Lilac Tree."
both of which were much appreciated.
The speaker of the evening was the
Rev. Kelson Chappie of Kimberley,
who is taking Rev, Evans* pulpit
there during his absence on Chautauqua work. Speaking on his sub-
jeet, "What Brotherhood Mean-,"
the visitor delivered an address which
wa" filled with timely thoughts, advice and admonitions, which, in the
words of several speakers in moving
n vote of thanks to the speaker, were
delivered in a fearless, candid manner.
After pointing out what brother
hood could do in Christian community
life, the Speaker claimed that religion
could be made real and practical.
Religion was not something to believe
in to prepare you for dying, but to
teach people how to live. True bro-
therhood had for its object the welfare of the people at large. True
brotherhood of man could be brought
about by our living lives so that its
influence would bc for the best.
The speaker referred to the prevalence of raffling in many organizations and churches; this, he claimed,
was not for the best.
On conclusion a hearty vote of
thanks was tendered to the speaker.
Following the address, Mrs. F. M
MacPherson and Mrs. Norgrove fa
vored with fl duet, being obliged t<
respond with an encore.

Besides having the honor of naming the park and the pleasure of

to the ceremony.

The committee selecting the name
for the park had a mosl difficult task,
as not only were there a great number to be considered, bu1. there were
many of which any one would havo
been good. A perusal oi the names
showed that Victoria park seemed
to be the popular choice, ther being
about twenty who would have named
it that, while fourteen would like to
have called it Vimy. In the choice
of name mnny local peopjle were
honored by having their name connected in some way to the park, a
former resident, X. Hanson, being
one whose name wai chosen by scv-
ernl of the children. Many tried to
give recognition to Individuals and
clubs who had been active in tho
establishment of the new playground,

Molly wrung out another nondescript little two-legged garment,,
shook it fiercely between slim, brown
hands, nnd tossed it over into the
bluing water.
"I hate men, I hate marrying, I
hate children," she announced tensely through set lips. "I hate them, I
hate them, I hate them I"
Molly's mother fluttered back de-
precatlngly from the pot of clothes
jshe had been stirring and gave an
I abstracted jog in passing to the crib
of tbe temporarily youngest Shannon,
Maggie Shannon wits from Ihe beginning to the end of each new offense
i perpetually in tho apologetic mood.
Boforo Molly's sternly accusing eyes
she made propitiatory offerings—
and promises for the future. The
promises, to be sure, were never kept,
for she seem one of those to whom
nothing but the confines of nature
i itself could set  a  bound.
"I—I wish you wouldn't talk like
that," she said, iu her gentle, diffident voice. "It always scares me.
Life can do such terrible things to
you if you hate it."
"It can, anyhow. Look what it's
done to you. Besides, I don't hate
life. 1 only hate the way one has
to live it."
Mrs. Shannon Rhook her head.
She glanced, furtively appealing,
from Molly's profile of a very youthful destroying angel to the Jovian
figure of gallused and sock-footed
ease which reclined on a battered
wire cot under the house's shaded
lee. How that tumble-down onc-
room-aiid-iean-to shack bad managed
to brood the yearly increasing "no
omit" tribe of Shannon, nobody
in thrifty Laws' Chapel had ever
figured  out.
Lem, head of the tribe of Shannon, had a strong penchant for literature of the Wed and Parted,
Thorns and Orange Blossoms, Chaldron of the Abbey variety. He preserved a blissful, detached existence
among lords and marquises: amung

hair, slowly burns thc color, lustre
and very life from the hair, leaving
iit dry, faded, brittle, and full of
dandruif; then the hair roots shrink
and the hair falls out fast.
Since girls just must curl and
wave the hair to appear their prettiest, try "Danderine" to offset any
bad effects. After the first applica'
tion your hair will lake on new life
and that healthy, youthful lustre, become incomparably soft, wavy and
appear twice as thick and abundant.
Falling hair stops and dandruff disappears.
A 36-ccnt bottle of refreshing
"Danderine" from any drug store or
toilet counter will do wonders for any
girl's hair. It goes right to the roots,
invigorates, nourishes and strengthens
them, helping the hair to grow thick,
healthy and luxuriant.

" *N he c'n pick more cotton in
a day thnn anybody in Lumar County," Larry Shannon, a preter-
naturally alert and freckled urchin
of twelve, cropped up suddenly from
nowhere and chimed in.
" 'N he c'n turn redder in the
fnc'n a turkey gobbler's snout,"
Lonny, Larry's twin and shadow—
Alonzo and Larrabee their official
titles—added with a hojieful glance
at bis sister's averted face. To
goad her to wrath was the twins*
meat and drink; a Mephistophelinn
revenge for her eternally correcting
thc way they talked and imploring
them to act a little less like cannibals
at table.
Mrs. Shannon's eyes sought her
daughter's—timid and uneasy. "You
boys run 'long and get the stove
wood corded up before dinner." She
shooed the reluctunt twins away, like
a mother hen whose brood has proved too muche for her.
They went lingeringly. Then Mrs,
Shannon said hesitatingly—speech, on
delicate," intimate subjects did not
come easily between mother and
"Molly, I don't want you Mould
go on slnvin' your life out here,
when you can hnve a good home of
your own and a good husband—"
"Yes, and a baby every other year
for the next twenty-five years—or
maybe every year," the other concluded with the concentrated, blighting bitterness of which only the very
young are capable. She wrung out
the last garment and propped her
washboard uncompromisingly against
a tree.
"Jo Blackburn can koep his house
—and himself, too—so far as I'm
concerned,"she added with a passionate finality which might have been
amusing if it had been a whit less
tragically cnrnest."I wouldn't marry
any man on the face of the earth, not
if he was made out of houses and
books were friendly and nospitable
on open shelves. Then Aunt Lena.
But every house had at least two or
three volumes—and Molly the keen
scent of a bird dog for ferreting them
out. People smiled when thsy saw
her coming. They knew it was the'r
books, not themselves, she Knd come
to see.
When she was twelve and a fraction, oh, wonders of wonders, Doctor
Wan-en and his wife had taken her
to town one evening to see a play.

The theatre—anathema of country
revivalists! It was deliciously terrifying thus boldly to kick up one's
heels under the v«ry nose of orthodoxy! Molly's fingers turned to ice,
her breath came uneven and fast, as
the footlights ran out like the first
forked tongue of a prairie fire in the
mysteriously darkened "operu house."
The curtain rose showly, with tantalizing hitches, on a "drawing'room
She had no standards for distinguishing between a real play and
ton-twenty-thirty stock. But even
her dazzled, eager-to-be-deluded eyes
could not overlook the fact that the
sixteen-year-old heroine of the piece

of yellow curls had not originally

opened before her. After that night
of destiny, her own stories were
transfigured. The wall opposite her
bed in the old lean-to became the
rear dimension for a stage set out
with such reckless magnificence as
even the nabobs in the profession
ean scarce afford. Thick folds of
sombre velvet—these she instinctively preferred to the tawdry painted
canvas—parted with slow and stately dignity. The footlights blazed from

of Indian-summer moon, and—the

It was September, and every able-
boddied man, woman, and child was
in the fields from dawn till dark.
The only difference botweer. the
Shannons and other Laws' Chapel
children was that the latter picked
cotton on their own land, the Shannons on somebody else's. Lem Shannon had never owned a foot of land
in his life, save the ill-kept half
acre on which his shack was stuck
like a gray dirt-dauber's nest on the
fertile black breast of the prairie.
He had never attained even the dignity of a "renter." Before a touch:

than nny other girl or boy in Laws'

rhetoric, English literature, and even

of her unorthodox powrcw uf acquisition; afraid, too, of her biting

The dunce of the Wardner Athletic Club, which was held on Friday
evening last in the club hall proved
to be a success both financially and
from a social viewpoint. The music
which was furnished by the new Bull
River orchestra filled the bill very
creditably, and in the matter uf attendance, an exceptionally large
crowd turned out for the occasion,
people assembling from Wasa. Cranbrook, Jaffruy, Bu'l River and Waldo,
The supper arrangements were placed
in the hunds of the ladies' basket ball
club, and their ability to handle the
matter was quicklj proved at the
hour of midnight when the refreshments were served. During the supper hour the ticket numbers were
drawn for the ladies' prize, being
won by Miss Anni^ Netzel, the prize
being a large box of chocolates, while
that jf the gentlemen, a large box of
cigats, was won by Chns. Barnes, Jr.
Needless to say the lucky winners
were soon passing around among the
crowd gathered with the boxes opened. The dancers next cleared thc
floor and the dancing resumed until
two o'clock, the ofneial hour set for
its concluson, the lights being secured
only until that hour. However, most
of those indulging in the art of dancing worn not yet ready to stop and a
collection taken up to pay the musicians nnd lamps being secured, the
fun was continued until three o'clock.
This was the first dance to be put on
by the Athletic Club of Wardner,
but, judging from the success of the
affair, it is not expected to be long
before plans will be shaping up for
another function of the kind.
Mrs. Jack Guest, who hus been a
patient in the St. Eugene Hospital,
Cranbrook, for the past week or so,
is reported to be fart recovering her
usual health aud was allowed on Saturday to leave that institution. At
present Mrs, (Jnest is making a short
visit in Cranbrook at the home of
her sister, Mrs, Walker.
As usual quite a number of Wardner shoppers were noticed in Cranbrook on Saturday evening, having
motorde in to shop or take in the
show. Among those motoring In
were Mr. and Mrs. Paul Stgrey, Mr,
nnd Mrs. Wm. Han-is, Mr. ana Mn.
Wm. Holton, Hnrry and Elmer
Thompson, Ben Hnrgreaves, John A.
Lawson, Mrs, F, W. Thompson nnd
Mrs. Howard Haney.
Misses Ethel Dow, Astrid Johnson,
nnd Messrs. Chns. Barnes, Jr., and

Mr. Alfred Johansen journeyed to
Cranbrook between trains on Tuesday  lust,  visiting   thc  dentist.
Mr. nnd Mrs. H. W. Birch and
daughter motored to Cranbrook on
Thursday afternoon.
Quite a number of ticket holders
for the prize list put out by J, Martinos in his store during the month
of April, gatherel at the store on
Saturday evening when thc prizes
were awarded. The first prize, a
silver tea service, went to Jack Trainer, of Wardner. lhe second prize,
consisting of a hum and a side of
bacon was won by George Negard,
cose of assorted canned goods. The
fourth prize was made of a number
of packages of the various cereals
carried in the store and was awarded
to Oscar Johannson, of Wardner.
Mr. Martinos plans on forming another such advertising campaign
shortly. __
The members of the ladies' basketball club of Wardner turned out
for their usual weekly practice
games on Thursday evening. This
week the greens began to show their
stuff and succeeded in outclassing the
red team famously. Two new members were adopted into the teams and
as the ladies of the Fort Steele basketball team have announced that
they ate ready to meet all comers
it behoves the locul ladies to get in
plenty of practice if they intend
winning their laurels in future games.
Mr. and Mrs. Vincent Hickey and
Mr. Furko were visitors in Crunbrook

The bachelors and benedicts of
Wardner held a football match on
Tuesday evening, the bachelors showing their mettle by beating their
opponents 4-11. In the first half, thc
benedicts were fiul of pep and vim,
and at half-time they had three goals
to their credit. Ir. thc second half,
however, they began to slow up considerably before the young fellows,
who, by several splendidly played defense tactics, blocked the benedicte'
drives repeatedly. Rollie Thompson
easily starred in these defense plays
and more than one blockade was due
to his speed. Slowly pushing the
benedicts back lo defend their goal,
the bachelors, by gieat combination
work, backed by brilliant play, quickly succeeded in scoring four goals,
the scores following each other fast,
as their oponents appeared to go to
pieces. The match finished without
thc benedicts being able to score
again, and as a consequence are getting the big ha ha from the young
fellows, Dyer Elderhing served as
referee during thc game.
Mrs. Howard Haney, of Bull River,
spent the wek-end visiting friends
in Wardner.
The Wurdner bail team journeyed
to Waldo on Sunday afternoon to
play the Waldo team, evidently shaking the jinx that has followed them
during the past couple of years on
the way, as the boys succeeded in
winning from their oponents hy a
score of 5-4. Batteries for the day
were: Waldo, Todhunter and McNab;
Wnrdner, Dow and Harry Thompson,
Ben Embree set them off to a good
start in the first inning by knocking
a home run. Scoring was kept up
ufter this for iev»ral innings, when
thc Waldo boys evened up the game,
which was tied until the first of the
ninth frame, when the Wardner team
managed to make another score, and
also succeeded in holding the Waldo
players down to their old score during
their turn at the bat. Practically all
Wardner motored down to attend the
game, such a turnout being present
as has not been teen following the
home team for the past couple of
the Winton Lumber Co. Lyle's mnny
friends were glad to seo him again,
and hope that his flying visit will
prove to be one of many.
Mr. nnd Mrs. Horn und Mr. and
Mrs. Chas. Cook, of Kimberley, were
visitors at the home of Ed. Cook on
Wednesday last.
George Hunter spent Thursday at

A large proportion of the questions j ia much safer to take out the no-trump
limit ted by correspondents are in with any five card major suit. Such a
reference to a take-out oi partner'i no- bid jpven that information to partner
   ' 1- ■"■' u *  -'   and if he doesn't consider it the best
bid for same, he should bid two no-
trump. Such a procedure cm never do
any harm and tu many hands will enable jwrtners to make a game not otherwise possible. Auction is a partnership
game and Rivca the beat ru-ulis when
partners endeavor to bid twenty-six
rarda correctly, ratlur than thirteen.
Thefree take-out of partner's no-trump
handled by both players as just outlined seems to obtain the best bid of the
two hands, and for that reason seems
to be the right thing to do.
In the following hands there ii no
score, partner lias bid one no-trump
aud second hand has passed. Do you
think you should take him out? Think
it over and compare results in thcacit

Here is a clever little problem that'
will tax your ingenuity:
tramp when second hand lias passed,
livery player has his own j>et theory
and the writer is no exception. In his
opinion, a player bhould overbid partner'i no-trump under the following
(a) Having an original bid in
either major suit;
(b) Any six or more cards in either
major suit;
(c) Any two live rard suits;
(d) Any five card major suit if the
hand contains a void suit, a
singleton or no help for partner's no-trump.
In nny discussion as to the advisability of taking out partner's no-trump
bid with a bid of two hearts or two
Ipadei, careful consideration bhould bc
Riven to what the no-trump bidder
bhould do. That is, if t he dealer bids one
no-trump, second hand passes and the
dealer's p.ntner bids two hearts or
studes, with what t\|« of hand should
tne dealer bid two no-trump or pass.'
Any theory of the take-out that you
may adopt is incomplete without a
thorough understanding Itetween partners as to the procedure dealer should
follow subsequent lo the take-out. 1 am
of the opinion that if this procedure becomes thoroughly understood, there
will not U- the various differences of
opinion as to the take-out. With a partner win) understands what to do after
a take-out, it is much easier to arrive
at the best bid of the two hands. The
purpose of thc take-out, of course, is to
hid a suit that offers a better chance for
game than the no-trump. If, however,
the original no-trump bidder still considers the no-trump offers a better
chance for game, he should bid two no-
trump. If you adopt this procedure it
it is hoped that ull Vahk residents
