Thrills Galore In
Battle Tomorrow
Tomorrow night, for the first time
in Canadian honing history, the light-
heavyweight championship of the
Dominion will be decided ou Vuncouver Island, when at Courtenay Charlie
Belanger, Winnipeg, winner over Roy
Cllffo, Courtenay, In a recent battle
In Vancouver, will defend his honors
against the same opponent and endeavor to prove that he Is tlle Islander's superior iu the big division, which
has of late jumped Into much prominence across the  border.
Since the signing of the articles,
Cliffe and Belanger have been attending strictly to their knitting, which
"knitting" consisted of Intensive
training, and from the form shown by
both, fann are certain to witness a
hard fought battle for the supreme
prizes which naturally go to the winner, as that winner leaps Into the
front rank division and already the
wires are out, looking for a bout
with Huffman, the recent conqueror
ot Carpentier, for the winner of the
Courtenay embrogllo.
Neither mun hns spared his hired
help In the training camps and those
who have been on the receiving end
of the big gloves are the strongest
boosters for their respective men,
assured that they should know better
than others Just what the physical
condition of their "bosses" is at this
time.
Cliffe seems to have improved his
right mitt since his last showing and
while he was not called upon In that
regrettable bout with Ole Anderson
to give of his best, he will undoubtedly prove his worth tomorrow night,
as he has all to lose by defeat. He
shoots the old glove with a snap and
pep that lias been lacking hitherto,
while the Instructions received from
Jock MnJone, of St. Paul, have stood
him In good stead and he Is ready for
the all-important fray.
Uelanger, who ns an amateur held
Ihe world championship as well as
representing the Maple Lent at the
last Olympic Games, Is a pleasing
performer who carries dynamite In
either glove and It Is plain that he
depends more on his great strength
to win for him than he does on his
science to carry him through to the
winning post on points. In his workouts nt Courtenay and here in the
pasl throe days, the French-Canadian
hns shown that he carries nn "love
taps'' in either hand. He fights flat-
footed, but this is best suited to his
peculiar style of milling. Although
he won ou a foul against Cliffe when
they clashed In Vancouver last month,
the Winnipeg man Is oul for a clean-
cut vlstory with no nlihls attached
and as at least three matches now In
the making will be colled off In thc
event tbat he loses (o the Courtenay
light-heavyweight, tbe Maultoban is
out with the one desire to win by the
quickest route possible.
Kid Sullivan, I. T. camp, Campbell
River, has been compelled to scratch
in the seml-wlndup bout of 6 rounds,
to Harold Jones, Cumberland's classy
little llslic merchant. • Rather than
forego the chance to again show himself to Courtenay fans, Jones readily
agreed lo take on "Scotty" Inkstcr.
Revelstoke. who will substitute for
Sullivan, who recently broke his
rlghl hand In a light. Jones won
many friends by Ills former display
In Courtenay and agaliiHl the Revelstoke antagonist, can be depended
upon to make a strong bid for thc
winning verdict.
Bert Farrell, the promoter, has been
as busy ns a lien on a tin roof, lining
up a strong support Ing card of event
nnd the following will show that he
hns thoroughly combed the district to
provide good battles: Alble Davles.
Victoria, and Mocus Lanning. Vancouver, 100 pounders, will open the

OLD TIMERS ATTEND
MISCELLANEOUS SHOWER
The home of Mr. and Mrs. John
Thompson, Third Street, was the
scene last night of a delightful old
timers gathering and miscellaneous
shower In honor of Mrs. M. Mclntyro.
who leaves soon to make her home at
Union Bay. Many pioneers of ihe
city were In attendance and the numerous gifts they brought wlll be found
most useful by Mrs. Mclntyre In furnishing her new home.
The evening was pleasantly passed
with songs and music, Mrs. Mary
Marshall presiding at the piano, while
Mrs. S. Davis' solos were well received. Dainty refreshments were
served by Mrs. Thompson.
The manner In which Mrs. Thompson had put ta use sweet peas and
other flowers In decorating the rooms
was the subject of much praise, a
decidedly bizarre effect resulting.

SWIMS ALBERNI CANAL
Dana Rowan. 15-year old daughter
of A. Rowan, of Port Alberni, accomplished thc swim across the Alberni
Ciiiiul on Tuesday morning last.
Starting from the city dock she swam
to the fishing boundary mark on the
West side of the harbour. Miss Rowan Is a granddaughter ot Mr. Thomas
Bannerman, of Cumberland, and is
well known here having resided In
this city for a number of years.
During the last school term ln this
city, the senior matriculation question
in our High School was a sore spot
with the teachers and Board of School
Trustees alike, tlie former being of
the opinion that a fourth year class
retarded their efficiency with respect
to the remaining classes, while some
of the Board members failed to agree
with this line of reasoning, contending that as the other classes were but
small, the teachers had surely time
enough to spare for the two or three
pupils in senior matric. Be that as
it may, after a -thorough Investigation
of the problem by a select committee I
of Trustees, to whom the teachers
related the difficulties encountered
during the term, It was decided to
drop the fourth year class for this i
coming term at least, this in spite of
the fact that where heretofore there
had been only two High School
teachers, there will now be three, the j
additional one having been engaged
this summer.
An Increase ln the number of High i
School pupils this coming term over
the number last term makes the third,
teacher necessary, lf justice Is to be
done the pupils In their studies.  Last
term,   however,   Principal  Shenstone:
and   his   assistant,   Miss   Partridge,
asserted that they could quite easily
handle the three ordinary High School
classes If they did not also have to
teach senior matriculation, and there
ls no doubt that they were correct In
this assertion.   But whereas last term
two teachers handled some fifty pupils !
this term there wlll be three teachers
for barely more than sixty pupils, the'
proportionate   Increases   in   teachers
and pupils by no means coinciding.
Why the decision, then, to discontinue
the fourth year class?
It may be argued that this term no
pupils are desirous of taking senior
matric, but that Is not the question.
The point Is that it is generally
known ln Cumberland that a decision
was reached at a recent Trustee meet-
Ing to abandon this extra class, and
In view of this decision several parents who might otherwise have sent
their children to school here are now
making preparations to send them to!
tbe University of British Columbia—
a much more expensive course. The |
Islander maintains that this is unjust, |
the more so since the three teachers
now on tbe High School staff can
quite capably handle tbe usual classes
as well as senior matric, if they so
desire.   Why not, then, at least give
the taxpayers of this city the oppor
tunlty to save by coming to the fore
with the announcement that a fourfh
year class will be Instituted In the
High School If enough pupils attend
to make the class worth while. Then,
and only then, should It be decided
to continue or discontinue teaching
of this class here In umberlaiid, for
If the latter course be taken there is
still lett enough time to mako
arrangements for the pupils to attend
the University.
In Ladysmith senior matric will be
taught this coming term, as witness
the following clipping from a recent
Issue of the Ladysmith "Chronicle":
"Last evening at the meeting of the
School Trustees it was decided to
form a class of 'fourth year High'
(senior matriculation) and names of
pupils who Intend to take this course
were submitted to the Board,
"An extra teaoher for this work
will be engaged by the Board and
the fees paid by the pupils (1150 per
annum) coupled with the government
•grant wlll fully meet all the expenses
of this new class. Pupils will pay
their fees monthly, the first payment
will be $30,"
According to the "Herald" Nanaimo
has also fallen Into line. The following lines are from a recent issue of
the "Herald," being part of an article
on the last School Board meeting:
"The question of a senior matriculation class came up, and lt was decided to hold such a class providing
seven or more pupils are enrolled.
The charge to the parents ot such '
pupils will be two hundred dollars,
one hundred of which ls to be paid
upon registration. Principal de Mac-
edb stated that seven pupils were assured, and he believed another, making eight in all, have decided upon
the course. With their fees, the government grant etc., the salary of an
extra teacher would thus be provided
for to take charge of the matriculation class,"
Duncan High School also will have
Its senior matriculation class this
term, reports from that city udvlse.
Cannot the Cumberland Board of
School Trustees arrauge matters
similarly? If the pupils respond, lhe
Board might thereby be able to con-
slderably reduce the expense Incurred
by the addition of a third teacher to
the High School staff. At least there
can be no harm tn making inquiries
as to whether or not any pupils are
desirous of taking fourth year here.

THE CUMBERLAND ISLANDER, CUMBERLAND, B. C.

The Cumberland Islander
PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY AT CUMBERLAND, B. C.
EDWARD W. BICKLE
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 1920.
TWO MEN The other day, during the noon
hour, the news of a great screen
actor's death was broadcast to the thousands of
radio listeners in this country. Within the hour
it was generally known that Rudolph Valentino
had gone to face his last and greatest audience.
There is no denying the fact that this young
Italian was one of the most popular stars of tiie
silver screen. We have been privileged to see his
work in a number of filmed dramas, and we pronounce it excellent.
The news of his death was heralded by heads
across the front pages of hundreds of daily papers
and the interesting story of his life was told—
and read avidly by the public.
On every side could be heard exclamations of
sorrow.
It is sad. This intelligent, artistic young
fellow undoubtedly had before him a brillant
future. Thirteen years in America had seen him
rise from the role of a job-hunting Immigrant to
an enviable position in the ranks of cinema
artists.
On the day of Valentino's death, another man,
famous in educational circles for more than a half
century, passed into the silent halls of death,
causing little more than a ripple in newspaper-
dom.
The life and work of Charles William Elliott,
President Emeritus of Harvard, has had more influence upon higher education than that of any
other man.
Charles William Elliott was frequently referred to as "America's foremost citizen."
President Roosevelt once alluded to him as
"the only man I envy."
He was an author of note, leaving many volumes of immortal writings. His greatest contribution to library treasures probably is his
"Five Foot Book Shelf."
We do not quarrel with the newspapers for
their discrimination. Possibly they know their
public—know what they demand in the columns
of news.
It is not to be regretted that we mourn the
loss of a man who could entertain the public by
his acting.
Speaking with no bitterness, however, it is indeed a lamentable fact, that thousands of persons
accidentally read the news that a great teacher
has gone, and passed on with scarcely a second
thought as to who he was or what he had done.
BURNING UP MONEY You can remember
distinctly when you
lived, and lived well, on less than $20 a week.
Gradually your income increased but your outgo
increased proportionally and there is where you
started to slip.
The man who draws down a good salary and
cannot seem to save a cent should immediately
put a padlock on his pocketbook.
We will probably never go back to the $20 a
week wage, but we ought to be able to save as
much out of $30 a week as we did in the old days
when two-thirds that sum was available.

searching the sea. "What's that?"
| The keen-eyed skipper pointed to a
j speck on the water barely visible even
when raised on the crest of a wave.
All the glasses were trained on It.
"That's the little devil!" cried the
skipper.   "He'll suffer for this."
Tile Scooter swung about and proceeded at top speed now In the direction of Dick on the sinking rowboat.
"Uncle Craig! What's that? Isn't
that the Scooter. And what's that
speck they're In such a hurry to get
to? Why, running this way, toward
Us, nol away from us!"
Kennedy seized the glasses. "Why
it's Dick—It looks as if he was in a
lowbont, awash, out there in the
ocena. He must have got away from
them. But how strangely he acts. He
must be bound—and adrift In a sinking bout! Now, Easton, show your
'speed!"
Flying was no nnme for the manner In which the Sea Seoul skimmed
the    air.     We enme as near as  we
dared approach, then down to the surface, und taxied along closer lo Dick.
The row boat had left him In the
wuter now,  treading  water  to  keep
his   heud   above   thc   Biirfacc.     He
could not huve stood that long.
"Look!   They're going away!"
Ken hud eyes all over his head, It
seemed.   He had seen that the Scooter, catching sight of us, had turned
nnd  wns headed away at full speed
Into thc ocean to escape.
It was ticklish business, but Gaston
knew his hydroaeroplane well and
manipulated it carefully.
"I only hope he can keep himself
afloat," murmured Gaston. "If he can
I can save him.
He let the Sea Scout drift with the
wind, managing to guide It so that
he could make as gentle an approach
to Dick as possible. Kennedy and I
leaned out from the wing and as the
pontoon floated us along we managed

to grasp  Dick.   Together we hauled rate
him up on the wing and into the boat.
He was all in.
Chafing his skin, rubbing und wrapping him in our extra clothing, we
soon had Dick where be was getting
control of himself after his ordeal.
Laddie leaned over liim and his
rough tongue began to lick the boy's
face. Dick smiled and though it hurt
him, patted tho faithful dog's head.
"Do you feel better, Dick?" Ken
bent over him and pulled 8 great coat
closer about him.
"Yes. Gee! But I was glad it was
you fellows coming along—not the
others." He nodded toward the departing Scooter. He seemed to have,
a horror of them after the treatment
they had given him.
"How's mother? And Vira?" Dirk
was fast recovering, but his teetli*still
chattered. "1 knew you'd help me
Ken, old scout. . . . Say, I'm hungry!
It was then that I knew Dick was
all right. When a boy begins to
think of his stomach he is not badly
off.
"Down, Laddie! Stop rocking the
boat!" adjured Ken. "Yes Dick.
Walt till 1 get you home. Hot cakes
and maple syrup! It seemed to put
them normal. Dick was better for
the mere conversation about eating.
The Scooter seemed to have seven
league hoots on, so fast was she disappearing. Dick was feeling better
every minute. Now he raised his
head nnd looked about.
"Oh, Uncle Craig—Easton—don't lei
them get away!" he cried.
Now the tables were turned. Once
he had beeu ready to undergo any
peril to get away from the Scooter.
Now he was ready to push even his
slowly returning strength to get back
to It. To us the main quest had been
Dick. To him It was the capture of
the criminals. i
There was the Scooter. Far out to
sea It was, plunging ahead at a great |

the last. Aud these boys amused us.
What did they think we were going
to do? If we got to it, might it not
be like the man who had caught the
bear by the tail—afraid to let go, lest
the bear turn on him?
On the Scooter there was every
preparation going on for a fight. One
I would have thought it was a floating
arsenal to see the guns and ammunition that this villainous crew were
bringing forth. They were determined
to sell their lives dear.
The muffled skipper was Issuing
orders, He was resourceful. Never
an emergency which would have
floored their sodden brains but that
he had a plan and a clever energetic
means of meeting the crisis. Now
they were obeying him with an alacrity ilia (almost amounted to worship.
"Here, Kennedy!" BflStOD was keyed
up like o thoroughbred nervous hunter. "Take these controls! I'll take
the radioplane!"

<Proper ageing
ma\es
healthful heer
A MONG the measures taken in the plants
%y\ of the Amalgamated Breweries to assure
that the beer made for the people of
British Columbia is of the purest and most
healthful character there is a factor not often
brought to the attention of the public.
That is proper ageing, under thc most favorable
conditions known to the Bcience of brewing.
The stability afforded the brewing industry in
British Columbia by the legal, above-board and
Government Controlled sale of beer, by the
glass in licensed premises and by the bottle
in Government Stores, affords thc Amalgamated
Breweries an opportunity to maintain an ample
and sufficient reserve that is allowed to mature
slowly and naturally.
The ageing of beer in the plants of tlie Amalgamated
Breweries completes the ph; sica! ana chemical processes
that the malt and hops undergo in the course of brewing
and is among the reason' why the people of British
Columbia are provided with heer of high quality.
Pure and healthful beer is the produet of the finest
materials plus the utmost care, and most elaborate
and scientific equipment is required. In its making
it is absolutely sterilised, and prolonged filtering
leaves it crystal clear and a delight to the eye.
Then comes the ageing that removes every trace of
the rawness often found in beers that are too
"young," and that makes it bland and digestible—
really a pre-digested liquid food, high in nourishing
qualities.
The valuable sugars, proteins, mineral salts and organic
phosphorous compounds are united in close and homogenous union, and, most important of all, fermentation
is totally ended, leaving the alcoholic strength low—
4.25 per cent, as provided for by law—and just
sufficient to stimulate the digestive system in the most
favorable manner.
Visitors are welcome at all times to inspect thc model plants of the
Vancouver Breweries Ltd., Rainier Brewing Co. of Canada Ltd.,
Westminster Brewery Ltd., Silver uprini* Brewery Ltd., and the
Victoria Phoenix Brewing Co. Ltd.. where the beer supplied to thc
people of British Columbia is ii.ade.,

FOUNDATION STONES
An event of historical importance
to British Columbia and especially to
Vancouver Island will take place next
Thursday when the Bishop of London
will lay the foundation stone of tiie
new Cathedral of Christ Church, Victoria, 'ilic Importance lies in the fact
ii showing ihat the Church as an institution continues to survive and
carry ou its work or service. Under
the foundation stone will rest five old
stones sent out from Canterbury
Cathedral, These stones were used In
the huilding ol the Abbey church of
tUe Monastery of St. Augusliuc- us far
back as A.I). UOO. Little did the huild-
3i'a of thai Church 13 centuries ago
realize to what purpose these stones
would lie put, and how far they would
i ravel from their .original site. Only
someone with n vision of the Church's
future could hava suggested tho idea
of bringing llie.io stones from England
and building up tlle life or our own
Island Cathedral upon them.

CREDIT THE JAPANESE
Of Interest to the people ot Cumberland will be the decision ot the
Japanese Government to abandon Its
assistance to emigrants for the time
being "on account of impecunlty."
While this may, ln the main, be true,
one cannot help feeling that this
action Is the result of the Immigration
| policies adopted by other countries
which have welcomed, none too warmly, the emigrants trom Jupan's shores.
j Cumberland may well be proud of Its
Japanese population. In ull departments they mnke good, whether lt be
In School, in the lumber mill or on
the land. Thoy hnve adapted themselves remarkably to the conditions
which surround them, and they are a
people who keep themselves very
much lo themselves without interfering with others. While we all agree
Willi Hie policy of restricting tlle tide
of emigration from Oriental countries,
we must also all agree that those who
have come from Japan "huve made
good."
