For the first time since the commencement of the Pacific Coast 2nd
Division League, Cumberland has to
share the top berth with another
team, West Coast United, being the
result of a 4-1 win for the Alberni
boys over Cumberland last Sunday.
It was the Intermediates' first defeat
In eight starts and was more surprising owing to the fact that Cumberland
has already defeated the West Coasters on two occasions. Both teams
now have 12 points, but from the table
above it will be noticed that the West
Coast team has played one more game
than Cumberland.
-Last Sunday's game was played on
the Port Alberni field, which wus
covered to a depth of two Inches with
Ice and snow, so that neither team
could hold their feet. West Coast,
being more accustomed to the field,
did not find quite the difficulty their
opponents did, however.      With the

WILL THERE BE A
HOLIDAY FEAST FOR
FEATHERED FRIENDS? Dance At Ilo-llo
'Special Holiday
In the back yard of a home of a
friend of the writer, a decorated
Christmas tree, laden with food, is
placed every year. This is a most
excellent Idea, as the months of De-
comber and January are usually very
hard on our feathered friends. This
lady, who resides In Vancouver, always leaves the tree loaded with food
until the end of February. The recent
heavy fall of snow In Cumberland has
made It very hard Indeed for birds,
and we would suggest that residents
place crumbs and leavings from thc
table ln their back yards so that thc
birds can enjoy a real Christmas
feast NOW.
The custom followed In Norway and
Sweden of hanging sheaves of wheat
out for the birds at Christmas should
be adopted In Canada on tbe first
occasion of a heavy fall of snow.
Think It over, friends, and put a feast
out for the birds, Just as soon as you
have read this humble appeal.

Conti Earns
Cognomen Of
"Leaping Tom"
Thomas "Sacki" Contl, erstwhile
centre half back for Cumberland and
recognized as one of the best at this
position in British Columbia, ls again
making a name for himself in California soccer circles, the same as he
did last season. But the peculiar part
of It is that Sacki Is playing centre
forward and lf he can make a name
for himself in that position, what a
sensation some of British Columbia's
forwards would make lf they went
South!
Contl has signed this year with the
Sons of St. George, a British team ln
the Sau Francisco league, and bas
been Instrumental in winning both
games that he has participated ln to
date. He scored all the goals in both
gomes—2 i:i the first and 1 In the
second, and owing to the fact that all
3 goals were scored through Sackl's
trick of jumping and then heading the
ball, the 'Frisco sport writers have
dubbed bim "Leaping Tom," Here
are a few extracts from two San
Francisco papers anent Conti's last
two appearances:
Dec. 4.—" 'Leaping Tom' Contl yesterday jumped headlong Into tbe
soccer picture at Ewing Field. He
jumped so well and so effectively that
the winning streak of the Thistles
came to an abrupt, but not Ignominious, conclusion at the hands of the
Sous of St. George, two goals to one.
"Leaping Tom scored both of the
Sou's goals, in what scribes of American intercollegiate football persuasion
would have termed an 'lrrestible aerial attack.'
"Al Newlands played the part of the
passer, and did his work with the
precision of a "Brick" Muller or a
"Biff" Hoffman.
"Leaping Tom played the role of
Imlay, or Hyland, or who have you,
by accepting the passes with his head
and butting them into the Thistle net
with the graceful gesture of a seagull
going after a crust thrown from the
upper deck of a ferryboot.
"Devlin,   the   Thistle   goalie,   who
played a sterling game, was simply

Ever on the look-out for new steps,
local dancers have discarded the
Charleston and taken to the Polka
with a vengeance. This old dance,
long thought to be extinct, has been
brought back to popularity along
with many others by the old time
dances every Saturday night at the
Uo-IIo dance hall. After one of the
numbers last Saturday night one of
the more youthful dancers amongst
the large crowd was heard to remark
that "the Polka has the Charleston
cheated forty ways."
Another of these old time dances In
the Uo-IIo hall tomorrow night from
9:30 to 12. Are you going to be one

LOCAL "BASKETEERS"
LOSE TO COMOX FIVE
The Cumberland quintette of basketball players lost a league match
last Tuesday evening when they went
to Comox and took on the senior
squad there. The score was 41 to 32,
with Comox taking the lead at the
beginning and never being headed. It
was a fast and clean game, very few
personal fouls being called. Cumberland found difficulty in getting
their cars over the snow-covered road
and consequently it was nine o'clock
before the game started. The teams
were:
Cumberland—D. Stevenson, J. Robertson, E. Bickle, A. Somerville and
J. Stevenson.
Comox—Don Butler, Herb Moore,
Mike Downey, Saunders, G. Davis, C.
Davis and Walt. Cliffe. M. Stewart,

thoughtful independence.   And the thing needed
most is money, wisely and safely invested.
Remember for the waster, the spendthrift and
the idler the road still leads over the hill to the
poor house and thousands who thought that it
was more important to make a good showing
among their friends than it was to save a little
money- come to that period of old age, that ahould
mean the age of blessed peace and release from
responsibility, to And it a hateful time of worry
and anxiety. Save for the old man, or the old
woman.
CHRISTMAS RECIPES
A MODERN
ALADDIN
Thirty-seven years ago a lad of 16
landed on these shores, with a
party of emigrants from Europe.
His first wage was $2 a week anefhe was glad to
get it. Last week he opened to the public in the
city of New York a beautiful theatre costing
$3,000,000- The Paramount Theatre, civilizations*^ last word in the art business of the camera, is a credit alike to its creator, Adolph Zukor,
and to the city in which he laid its foundation
twenty-three years ago through the lauchmg ot
a penny arcade.
Mr. Zukor's rise since he landed here is as
romantic as any play he has ever screened, but
it has been due to ability, foresight, hard work
and faith, not to luck- It epitomizes the continent
of North America, never more than now the land
of opportunity. ... .
It will do no harm if the millions who will be
entertained in this beautiful theatre shall reflect
upon its inspiration in the career of the man behind it.
OLD AGE In the heyday of youth, and in the
strength of middle age do you ever
stop to think of the old man or the old woman
you will have to take care of some day, if your
life is spared? ,
The young sometimes pity the old lady sitting
quietly behind the spectacles, or the old man
walking slowly and looking upward at the sky.
Pity is not needed when the old man or old woman
are independent. There is joy in relief from responsibility and from striving. There is intense
happiness in possessing leisure to contemplate
the earth and human existence, and the goodness
of the Power by which all things here are ruled.
There is one simple rule that will bring you
to this happy stage when old age comes. That
simple rule is: Save as you go, just as you would
save vour food and water if you set out for a long
voyage across troubled seas. The farther you go
into the unknown expanse, the more you depend
"on your fresh waler supply. The farther you go
into old age, the more you depend on that which
makes old age what it should be, an age  "
of
HOME The Christmas season is the time of year
when the home exerts the greatest and
strongest appeal. There is a world of sentiment
in the line, "There is no place like home"
Memory clings fondly about the home of our
childhood and our greatest effort in life is directed toward the keeping of the home. All through
life the home is the biggest and best part of us.
Your home may be a shack in the north woods
or a mansion by the side of a southern sea. You
may be an old bachelor with an apartment or the
father of a dozen children, living in a mortgaged
home- It makes no difference. That place in
which you rest and for which you work, is home.
In the making of a home the home makers are
trained in the finest things of life. It is the sacrifice, the service given for others, the grim
responsibility that rests on one that makes much
for the characters of men and women. Our service for others is what brings real joy into our
lives.
It is not to be doubted that all over our country, on every farm, in every village and city, the
majority of our homes are good. But when we
read that in the last ten years juvenile delinquency has increased 100 per cent, and that 75 per
cent of that delinquency is due to bad home life,
we may be pardoned for seeming a little alarmed.
These boys and girls do not come from the slums
alone. They come from homes where father and
mother have been too much engrossed in other
things to discipline themselves and their children.
At this Christmas season let us, who are the
heads of homes, see to it that the atmosphere of
that home is one of love and appreciated responsibility. Let us remember that children do not
degenerate unless parents are corrupted and that
when the home is destroyed, the republic can be
no more.
The question for each man to settle is not
what he would do if he had means, time, influence
and educational advantages, but what he will do
with the things he has. — H. W. Mabio
The blessed work of helping the world forward
does not wait to be done by perfect men.  —Elliot

DRAMA OF RUSSIA
IN  REVOLUTION IS
NEW DE MILLE FILM
The great drama of revolutionary
Russia has received its first real unfolding under the hands of Cecil De
Mille. With the title of "The. Volga
Boatman," De Mille anounces thot his
second independent production Is a
striking nnd colorful reproduction of
the absorbingly Interesting events
which occurred in Russia, when sre-
vant became master—and master became servant.
"The Volga Boatman," originally
Inspired by thc song of that name,
j takes no sides. It is merely a love
story between an aristocrat, played
by Elinor Fair, and a.Volga boatman
impersonated by William Boyd, enacted against tlie background of the
!most stirring events in lecent history.
Perhaps the most unique love se-
Iquences In pictures are played in a
series of scenes, when the life of an
\ aristocratic girl is placed In the hands
of the rough human mule of the Volga. The girl Is given but five minutes
to live. 'What happens in that live
'minutes is said to be one of tlie most
original and gripping moments over
Included In a motion picture.
Humor aplenty is injected in'o the
picture by scenes showing the reaction of the various classes when
announcement is made that lhe old
regime lias been overthrown. Mr. .Do
Mille has provided n splendid spectacle, when the Reds interrupted a
I gorgeous bull or the aristocrats by
Ihe shelling and capture of Yuroslav.
"The Volga Boatman." which will
lie shown lhls week-end at tbe IIo-
lio Theatre, was adapted by Lenore
Coffee from nn original story by Kon-
rad Bercovicl. the famous gipsy novelist Featured players include Wm.
Boyd, Elinor Fair, Victor Varconi,
Theodore Kpsloff, Julia Fuye and
Robert Edeson.

Xcrma Shearer, who will be seen

never known before while making

Pluto, 'bin-pound king of the jungle,
who is In the circus sequence of the

Pluto Is. al heart, a gentle cat. with

winked with him. Norma grew quite
fond of the magnificent beast and he
of her. Under the watchful eye of
the lion-keeper, Norma was petting
him. and the Hon turned anil licked
her face, much as would a thoroughly

The masterful directing ot Rex

"Mare Nostrum" (Our Sea), whicli is
coming as a Chrismas special next
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Dec.
22. 24 and 25, to the Gaiety Theatre,
one of the finest pictures that has
ever been filmed.
Ingram has taken the strong Ibanez
drama of tlie sea at the time of the
great world war and transferred It
into the dim in a manner of whicli
only he Is capable of doing. The fine
thread uf his handling of situations,
people and the pictorial beauty run
through the entire picture and give It
the Ingram flavor wliieh the public
has tasted of and approved many
times before.
Alice Terry and Antonio Moreno
rise to dramatic heights in "Mare Nos
trum" which they have never before
reached during their careers before
the camera. By her handling of the
difficult role of Freya Talber**;, the
clever spy, Miss Terry (Irmly establishes herself as one of the leading
actresses on the screen today and one
of the most versatile. The sudden
change from the queenly parts she
fins enacted In previous pictures to
that of the beautiful spy is one that
reflects great credit to her ability.
Antonio Moreno has long been recognized as one of the most romantic
figures of the stage or screen. At
times he has been unfortunate in the
parts ho has played, but ln "Mare
Nostrum" has a role which lie has
long awaited, and he takes advantage
of the opportunity.
As Ulysses Ferragut, the Spanish
set captain, Moreno wlll long be remembered. Moreno ls a Spaniard and
Captain Ulysses Ferragut In the picture is as near a living character as
it Is possible for him to bo.

replied the gratefuL young woman, "I
suggest that it would be safer to make
the change less abrupt. Start the
salary from to-day upon the baBls of
$600 a year as suggested, but at the
end of six months raise it $25, and
continue to give me a $25 raise every
six months, so long as my services
are satisfactory."
The boss smiled benignly upon bis
faithful employee, as he accepted the
amendment, but a twinkle In his eye
set some of the boys to figuring as tn
whether or not the "Boss" made a
wise move by accepting her proposition.   Can you tell?

THE CHRISTMAS TURKEY
"There never was such a bird!"
Thus exclaimed Mr. Scrooge when the
Christmas turkey was set before him,
an exclamation that every housewife
would like to hear from the lips of
her guests and family when the
"piece de reslstence" of the Christmas dinner Is brought In.
The assurance of this satisfaction
rests with the housewife herself uud
the skill witli which she picks out the
Christmas fowl. There are several
points to consider In choosing a turkey. The bird should have plenty of
depth, a full, round breast and a long
straight breast-bone, well lleshed on
either side. If the' cartilege at the
end of the breast-bone is soft and
pliable, the bird Is young and tender.
The legs should be plump nnd smooth
and dark, but the rest ot the body
should be white, for a bird that is not
white has not been properly bled. A
turkey should not be too heavy—ten
pounds is usually the best size—but
it should have slight layers of fat,
JUBt under the skin, across the back
and sides.
The following information regarding grades may prove helpful.
Birds in the "Specials" grade aro
particularly perfect specimens both
as to conformation, quality and fUuh.
There should be no pin feathers, no
breaks or tears in the flesh nor any
evidence of food in the crop.
"No. 1" grade show no-pln feathers,
are well fatted and fleshed and should
have no deformities. -Discoloration
from rubbing or plucking is not found
in this particular grade. Abrasions
in the skin should not exceed one Inch
and there must he no more than two
or three on each bird.
"No. 2" grade are medium well
lleshed. The abrasions and tears ln
the skin may measure two inches and
may total six in number on one bird.
This grade does not bar deformed
breast bones.
Most of the turkeys on tlie market
at Christmas time come trom the
prairies, where a specialty is made of
them on many of the big farms. The
care of the specially raised birds often
Includes a milk and boiled vegetable
and boiled grain diet, which produces
that delectable layer of fat just under
the skin that makes a perfect roasting bird.
