The opening games for the season
took place on Tuesday night last in
the Bund Hall when the Cumherland
and Courtenny High School players
clashed. Thc girls' game was the
first on the programme, the locals
winning a one-sided gnmc by 43 to
13. However, as this was the first
game and the Courtenay girls not
properly organized, the result was no
surprise. The neighboring players
promise to get revenge next week
at Courtenay.
The second game of the evening
was between the boys from the local
and Courtenay high schools and turned out to be a real humdinger from
start to finish, with each team leading alternately. For an opening game
it was real snappy basketball and
with a little more practice the combination will be greatly improved.
Next week the teams meet at Courtenay when n most interesting game
should result. Hurold Conrod of
Cumberland refereed the games and
gave great satisfaction. He will no
doubt be in great demand this fall
if he keeps up the same brand of
work.
New Battalion To
Wear Hunting
Stuart Tartan
Announcement was made at Ottawa on Tuesday of this week that
Major 1). It. Sargent hod been promoted to the rank of Lt.-Colonel and
to command the 2nd battalion of the
Canadian Scottish with headquarters
ot Nanaimo. As stntcd last week
the new battalion will comprise companies from Duncan, Couitenay-
Cumhcrland,  Nanaimo and Saanich.
The new battalion will wear the
Hunting Stuart tartan recently approved by the Department of National Defence for the Canadian Scottish Regiment.
The company to be located at Duncan has already met with considerable success ,in that it is well organized under Captain Eric Henderson.

The Mayor said it looked like a case
of "passing the buck", and after
some further discussion all the Aldermen were of the opinion that
there was no work that needed doing iu the city and could not see how
filling in the form received from the
department was going to be of any
assistance. The aldermen perused
the unemployment list which had
been started one week ago. It showed well over 100 names on and whilst
there were some names of residents
of the outlying district it showed a
fairly large number of unemployed
or partially employed in the city.
Mayor Muxwell did not believe there
were more than twenty men unemployed in the city and frankly said
so. Finally the city clerk was instructed to fill in the form for the
Department of Public Works stating
that there was no work within the
City of Cumberland which needed
immediate attention. Before the matter was finally dispensed with Alderman Bannerman came out strongly
in favor of the City supporting the
Board of Trade in its efforts to get
some needed road work done within
the immediate district. He waB of
the opinion that it might jeopardize
the work of the Board of Trade if
the Council did not show any enthusiasm for this government relief
plan.
A communication was also received from McDiarmid and McDiarmid
solicitors for the city in the Electric
Light question, acknowledging the
receipt of cheque for $600 ns retaining fee for Mr, E. C. Mayers as special counsel for the City of Cumberland in the electric light arbitration
case which comes before the Court
of Appeal this month.
Bills and accounts to the amount
of $585.15 were refenvd to the fi-1
nance committee nnd if found correct ordered to hc paid. Reports of
committees were called for by the!

Former Local Girl
To Be Married
Cumberland, Oct. 6—Ot interest to
the numerous friends ot the bride-to-
be is the announcement ol the mur-
nnimo. This team of Nanaimo youths
after a brilliant record as juniors,
decided to enter senior company thlsj
year. A week ago they almost beat!
the famous New Westminster Royals
and the game against the Cumber-!
land Eagles on Sundny lost was look-1
ed upon by some of the Southend ex-j
ecutive os o practice game for the
boys and even went so far as to predict ii four goal to nothing win. As
a matter of fact, lhe Cumberland
Eagles were leuding three .goals to
one at half time and fifteen minutes
from full lime were leading four
goals to two. The home team were
very fortunate in being able to wipe
out such a deficit in the dosing stages
of what must have been to them a|Put through a
"hectic" time, and emerged victors
by a score of six goals to tfour.
There was a very large crowd present
and the special correspondent of the
Victoria Daily Times who was preen! at the gome said: "The visitors
had all the play in the first half and
deserved the lead of 3-1. The outstanding feature of the game was
the brilliant ploying of Henry Watson, Cumberland outside right. Three
of the goals scored by his side were
due to his efforts ond. he is the finest
outside right seen in Nanaimo for
many years." Continuing the Times
correspondent says:
■ "Cumherland .played .all over the
Southend in the first half and .kept
the home defense busy und but for
tho fine work of Edmunds und Boyd
would have hud half a dozen goals at
the interval. Cumherland scored
after twenty-five minutes of play
through McFarlane on'a cross from
Watson and Weir registered Cumberland's second goal from a free
kick.
Southend had a look in and Gray
scored from a corner kick. Watson
then ran right up, heating several
opponents and scored with u low
drive.
'On resinning ploy Southend
sumed the aggressive jyid bombarded
the visitors goal until .McGregor
scored. Southend kept up- pressure
and were having the best of the play
when Watson secured the boll on the
halfway line and beat several opponents to pass to McFarlane who netted
Cumberland's fourth goal.
"Southend livened up* and White
scored in a scramble in goal, after
Edmunds hit the crossbar with a hard
drive. Southend kept up the pressure and three more goals were scored through McGregor, 2: ond White
1.
"Cumherland tried hard to equalize. .*ind were bombarding home goal
whe,!! the whistle blew... For Southend Edmunds, Waugh ■"and McGregor
were the shining lights. Wulker lu
goal. Brown, Weir and Watson were
the pick of the visitors."
The teams were:     ■ •  ■
Cumberland—Walker, Brown, Mc-
Lyllan; Howay, Cpnrodw Weir; Watson, Gibson, Campbell, McFarlane
and Bartoldi.       .   .
Southend—Shepperd; Boyd, Edmunds; McGregor, Waugh, Hallinan;

that upwards of lli.OOO employees

Industries affected by tariff changes.
In many instances only those re-'

EDWARD W. BICKLE
"WORKED TO  DEATH"
IN AN OBSCURE corner of a New York newspapei
the other day there appeared an item about a widow
in New Zealand who sued her late husband's employer for $6,000 under the workmen's compensation lav,
of that Dominion. She charged that ber mun had been
literally "worked to death." The court upheld her claim
and ordered the employer to pay her the money,
The item was confined to these brief facts; but no oni
can read it without wanting to know a good deal more
about it. What sort of a job wus the man doing and
how did his widow prove to the evident satisfaction of
the court that he had been "worked to death'",' It make-
one wonder whether his employer was careless, nr just
a plain slave-driver.    It is indeed a puzzling case.
[f the truth were known, Incidentally this unidentified
New Zealand er is far from being the only worker whose
headstone might well bear the inscription, "Worked to
Death." In fact, that line would not be out of place on
millions of graves, scattered all over the world. It could
adorn the tombs of all classes of people, from Prime
Ministers ami Presidents to day laborers. It symbolizes
a fate thai overtakes, perhaps, the majority of nil
workers on this earth.
If the "big man" has died of overwork, however, there
usually are compensations, He seldom leaves u family
in want and he probably has achieved something by
which he will be remembered by his fellow men, But
the ordinary worker who wears himself out at his job
seldom has much consolation. It not Infrequently transpires, unhappily .that one who has been "worked to
death', has been badly cheated. It would be interesting
to learn what is back of the ease of the New Zoalander
Victoria Times.
CHECK UP /YOUR COOLING SYSTEM
careful inspection ami general overhauling to remedy
the ailments that may have developed during the sum*
mor, and to prepare for the annual tussle with Old Man
Winter. Most important of these Autumn adjustments
is careful attention to the cooling system.
In a booklet containing timely suggestions for preparing the car for Winter, the Glycerine Producers' Association, whose members manufacture ull the standard
radiator glycerine anti-freeze used in the United States,
j lists the adjustments that the average cooling system
\ requires nt the end of the summer driving period.
"First of nil," the Association points out, "the cooling
' system should be thoroughly cleaned and flushed and all
accumulated scale, dirt and sediment washed away. If
the accumulation is heavy, as is frequently the cusc
where cars have been subjected to long, hard driving
during the summer months, it is advised that cleaning
be done by an experienced radiator service man, but if
you undertake (lu* job yourself the sal soda method is
recommended,
"Any small senilis or leaks that may have opened up
during the summer shake-up, -mould be repaired carefully. You don't want your anti-freeze to leak out and
leave your radiator unprotected during the approaching
cold weather. All joints and connections in the circulating system, Including hose connections, pump and cylinder head bolts, should be tightened. Cracked or porous
hose connections should be replaced, and pump packing
and gland inns properly adjusted.
"If yon use radiator glycerine for anti-freeze pro-
tectlon. you can have your cooling system filled now and
no further denning will be necessary until the solution
is drawn out in the spring. Since radiator glycerine will
neither boil away nor evaporate at normal driving tern-
poraturcs, it can he Installed without danger of loss while
submitted by the secretary, it was decided to pay the (air prizes in full at
once. This action was tpken in spite
of the fair showing a loss of approximately 1102.00 brought about by a
considerably indreased prize liability
over that of last year and a reduced
attendance on the part of the public,
which made the Rate receipts substantially less than iu 1929. This result
would point to the financial advantage
of holding the fall fair on labor day
which was so satisfactory a year ago.
To make up thc deficiency, it has
been decided to arrange an auction
sale of produce and other commodities
during the present mouth, nnd the following committees have bcen appointed to receive goods for the sale:
Courtenay—W. A. Urquhart nnd R.
U. Hurford.

In addition to the accounts it was
decided to grant the sports committee

HEALTH SERVICE
of the
Canadian Medical Association
Question.* concerning Health, addressed to tbe Canadian Medical
ABBOclation, 184, College St., Toronto, will be answered personally
by correspondence.
CLEAN   HANDS
Our hands are in constant use and,
in the course of a few hours, they
come into contact with a considerable number of articles. It is because our hands are used so much
and that they are consequently almost sure to be soiled that, unless
properly cared for, they may be our
greatest enemies,
In previous articles we have stated that the norms of disease leave
the body an its secretions. The secretions from the nose and mouth are
those which most frequently curry
disease. We should always deal with
such secretions as if we knew them
to contain disease germs. The spread
of disease depends upon whether the
germ laden secretions from one person gains entrance into the body of
another  person.
The spread of disease may be direct, as when the perms are transferred by the droplets which are thrown
out in tho air by uncovered coughs
and sneezes. It may also be indirect
and .it is in the indirect spread thut
the hands play an important part.
In considering the indirect spread
there are two important points to be
kept in mind. Disease germs die
comparatively quickly outside of the
body. They require heat and moisture to preserve their lives; drying
destroys them and sunlight kills
them.
What we have to fear are the
fresh, moist secretions. As our
hands are warm and humid, germs
can and do persist on them for some
time.
In using thc handkerchief, in covering a cough with thc hand, we are
almost sure to soil our hands with
the nose and mouth secretions. If
we then shake hands with someone
we transfer some of our secretions
to the hand of that person. If our
hands are soiled, we the soil objects
which we touch, such as a door-knob
someone else may touch these objects
after we do, and so, indirectly, the
nose and mouth secretions of one
I person are passed to the hands of an-
| other.
There is no reason, however, why
this should alarm us. It has, nevertheless, a very practical lesson for
| us, and it is the purpose of this
j article to bring this lesson to the
i attention of our readers.
■ As long as disease germs remain
; on the hands, they cannot do us any
j harm. They must gain entrance into
| our bodies if they are to cause mis-
chief. We can quite readily protect
j ourselves from the dangers with
j which our hands may threaten   us.
First of all, we should keep our
hands away from our faces excepting
when using a handkerchief, or when
eating, or using a toothbrush . It is
a dangerous habit, that of touching
the face, and particularly the lips
with the hands.
Most important .however, i.s that
the hands should always be thoroughly washed before food is touched.;
Remember always to do this, and you
will have put into practice a habit'
which will do much to protect you
from disease.

{OLYMPIC   VILLAGE
' FORFOR   HOUSING  AND
FEEDING   ATHLETES.
Los Angeles, California.—Plans
for the Olympic village for housing
and     feeding    athletes    during    the
games uf the Xth Olmpiad In 1982,
ure   engaging   the   attention   of   the
Organizing Committee, which is com-
I pletlng all of the details of tliis very
, big and important feature of the pre-
l parabtons for the coming world event.
The village plan was received enthusiastically and adopted at the re-
: cent Olympic Congree in Berlin, al-
| though  it  wus possible at   that  time
I for the Organizing Committee tn pro-
i sent only a general idea of the plan.
I However, since their return tu  Los
Angeles, representatives of the Committee have (liven  thought  and  attention to the Village plan, and within four months all details regarding
it will he made public.    A  pleasant
surprise  for  all   National  Olympic
Committees  is  predicted  when   these
details are announced.
Tbe Organizing Committee believes
! that the health, comfort und peace of
j mind <>f the athletes and their im*
! medial**   entourage   are   of   principal
Importance in the success of the
games. Correct training diet in each
country's own cuisine Is assured under the Olympic Village plan. The
Committee is going to very great
expense and effort in preparing tin*
Olympic Village plan, which it believes will bt* accepted by all countries as an ideal arrangement.
The committee is suggesting to all
National Olympic Committees thut
attaches be appointed to maintain a
very close contact between the organizing Committee and the visiting
teams. These attaches will have offices in the Olympic village during
the Games and being familiar months
i nadvance, with the personnel and
details of operation of the Organizing Committee, will be of great service   to   the  countries  they   represent.
coast fishin<;

There was a noteworthy Increase
in salmon catch on the Pacific coasl
during the month and though gain
in landed value was not on the same
scale the total of nearly $1,081,000

$130,000 over the figures for August, 1029. The catch was 62,096,-
500 pounds as compared with 87,
238,200 pounds in the same month of

On the other hand, thp catch of
halibut, 8,125.(toil pounds was smaller by some 04,000 pounds than in
August, '20, and there was a sharp
decrease in landed value. In August of last year the catch had a land'
ed value to the fishermen of $369,-
872 while in the August just past tin-
value figures were only $240,150.
Returns from the pilchard fishery

and landed value was §105,245,
while in the preceding August the

By Flor du Barry
I came across an interesting problem in home decorating recently. Because it illustrates the one point up
on which woman's instinct, or intuition, so often fails in home furnishing, I'm going to relate it.
This young housewife had un unusually well developed color sense
The draperies, rugs, walls and celings
in her home harmonized beautifully,
The wood trim, too, showed thought
and careful color planning in the
modern style. Some of the base-
boards were in block or cither dark
(■(dors, dominant colors in the rugs
were carried out in draperies, un I
contrasting hues emphasized the
wall  treatment.
But the young woman was in despair. There was something wrong
somewhere—it was like a false note
in music, which some acute ears can
identify and others merely detect.
And that was the trouble with her.
She knew the false note was then
but where? It clashed upon her
sensitive nature. Interior decorating, like music, I told her, is an art
and requires long study. But, in
decorating, I pointed out, one can always play safe, when in doubt, by
employing neutral treatment. In
carrying out her decorative scheme
she hiid, I saw, like most women, entirely  forgotten about the floors.
Being an old house, the flooring
30ft yellow june. Since it was in
good condition, she thought a thorough cleaning and revarnishing
would suffice. That was the false
note, The uneven way that type of
j pine takes stain marred the surface**;
i the knots and cracks were too obvious and dirt had collected in -"he
ciacks and could nut be budged. And
what further emphasized the false
note, was the fact that wide pine
floors are old fashioned. They will
flash with any modern decorative
treatment,
There were but two ways to save
the day, either plan the flooring for
each room separately, which would
entail considerable expense, or lay
neutral narrow width oak in every
room. I suggested the latter because
it is not only the fundamentally
proper thing for any room, but is
tho most beautiful for simple or expensive homes alike. Since it would
fit any decorative scheme, I told her
that in future redecorating she could
ignore the floors entirely.
She adopted my suggestion and arranged wilh a floor layer a part payment plan whereby the cost was
-plead over a considerable time at
a few dollars a week. That to me
was a revelation because, while I
knew that the building trades were
adopting the installment plan in
population centres, 1 did not know
until then thut it had become more
or less common throughout the country.
