teams "toss'' for choice of prize and
that the points gained he not effected,
no matter which team won the toss.
The Cumberland ladies objected to this
manner of naming the winner and
willingly offered to go through another test. It is presumed that they
figured that flipping a coin was not a
test of ability hut a mere matter of
luck. However, after a lot of argument the local ladies decided to abide
hy the "toss" of a coin, Cassidy being
successful, they therefore had choice
of prizes.
The men's senior event was also
closely contested, it being stated that
all teams were very evenly matched.

on winning tbe Novice event and the

The Cumberland Islander
00M your town! If you don't, who will?
Maybe all the newcomers and prospective
residents think it is going to be the metropolis of this part of the Island, and it soon wll be.
Get in live and energetic men and the town cannot help but prosper, go forward and grow. You
never saw a town amount to anything in telling
t how dead it was—-lifeless and that all the powers
J that be could not start it moving, building up and
I endowing it with new life.   This is enough to kill
BOYS ar.d girls forced against their
through a lung course of study distasteful
and abhorrent to them, are always failures,
only mere parrots and chatterers through their
lives. We love the rough honesty and homely
humour and comic good sense, even though some
of the higher rules of rhetoric may be violated.
We love a man whose native boyishness is not all
lost by the us.- of a hair brush and shoe blacking;
whose nature is not all combed out and brushed
away. \\ e don'l care if his coat is a little out 01
fashion, and his speech a little too much empha-
sized—we say 'that man is natural, he does as
he teels,and he means what he says." On the
other Hand, we hate with a true haired, the sham
who weighs mf) meal he eats lor fear he shall
take more than a law of physiology allows; who
marks with the most exact precision every word
he uttera; values the cut ot a coat, and is mosl
scrupulously nice about contact with this nasty
world; who hates good honest dirt, uses eye
glasses young; bows well at a party and ia an
excellent judge of perfumery.
From all such, good Lord deliver us! We like
boys who give evidence of a determination to hew
their own way in the world. They are natural
kings of society, and if left to develop the natural
untarnished impulses of their souls, will make
their mark in the world and be of some use to
their fellow creatures.
These remarks are inspired after reading a
speech delivered by Professor Eden Quainton in
Vancouver last week when he said "the High
School should be the stopping place of a good
many of the youth of today. " We sincerely believe the Professor is right.

Make the best of everything. Take the progressive side of every reasonable question. Advertise
your town and business in every possible way
and your brightest hopes in regard to it will be
fully realized.
The Cumberland Board of Trade laid a request
before  the City  Council on  Monday night,  the  ;»;
granting of $15.00 towards the cost of advertis-  jjl:
ing Cumberland  in  the publication called "The  In:
Call of the Coast".   The total cost of the adver-  *'•'
tising amounts to $30.00 and for that sum this
city will be advertised throughout the length and
breadth of the continent through the publishing
of 26,000 of the books; 10,000 books on Sport in
British Columbia and 5,000 road maps showing
Cumberland and district.   Tho city fathers granted the request without any opposition to it at
all.  $80,00 is a small sum to advertise a town, and
we can bet our last year's salary that more than
the $;I0.00 expended will return to the city inside
of three months.   We look to the Board of Trade
to keep up tlle good work.

Dr. MacNaughton
Strongly In Favor
Of New Road
! Extra seating accommodation had
I to be brought Into the City Hall on
I Tuesday night to accommodate the
I number of members of the Courtenay-
j Comox Board of Trade when the mat-
j ter of the Menzles Bay Road was ful-
s ly discussed.
J Mr. P. L. Anderton, the president,
I In opening the question said that
j this wns the most important meeting
I the Board had yet had and he believ-
I ed thc Menzles Bay Road was the most
important question they had ever
; dealt witli. There was more business
I going to Vancouver, said Mr. Ander-
j ton, from that district than from any ey from?
piece of work that had been done In J
the past ten years. A very conservative estimate of the pay roll of thnt
of the road being put through as early as possible. The assistant district
engineer  also  seemed  favorably  im-
. Dressed.   He thought they had a very

half would be right at the door of

Mr. McCartney, of Campbellton. was ment and any support he could give
then called on nnd he spoke of the
great possibilities of whnt the Courtenny district would get if the road
were built. He had worked with the
logging companies for n number of
years and he knew no effort had bcen
made by the business men of Courtenay to get that trade until this
spring. Esgs, hay. ar.d every bit of
the supplies that had hcon going Into
these camps had been coming from
Vancouver but il this district organised so that they could supply the
camps they would get the business.
They had been missing hundreds of
thousands of dollars. Tiie road wns!
going to be built some day; why not]
build It now when there was some- i
l thing there they could draw the mon-
towards getting thc road put through
he would be only too pleased to do so.
The president personally conveyed
the thanks of the board to Messrs McCartney, Vanstone and Brunt on for
coming down from Campbellton to be
present at the meeting and to Dr.

On rising tn speak, Dr. G. K. MacNaughton,   M.L.A.,  said  thnt   if  the
president of the board was thc judge
and this were the case for the plaintiff, the defence would withdraw fromj
the case;  there would really be np-j
parently only one side to the question.
After taking the trip in, with Its mo- j
tor ride, hike, nnd boat ride back, not!
forgetting  the   wonderful  supper,  all]
who went up were absolutely convinc-
ed that there was very little lo be said'
in opposition to putting the road up;
to Menzles  Bay.    Personally  he  was
convinced uf  the  value of  the road
from both the humanitarian and so-1
cial side.   If the road went ln he un-1
derstood Uie families would be brought
in, schools and community halls provided.   From tho economic standpoint
they were Informed that the companies
would  Usue  ; Ucir  cheques on  Courtenay banks and a lot of the business
would   be  done   In   Courtenay  and
Campbell River.
Trom tliis end there seemed every
desirability for putting thc road
through and affording n market for
tlie produce of the Comox district.
Prom the government's viewpoint it
was apparently a matter o[ dollars
and cents, lie had taken every opportunity In Victoria or presenting the
claims for this road and the question
seemed to be whether it would form
part of the Island Highway to Say-
wind. There wns a road being built
from Sayward down this way and the
minister wanted to be assured that
this would tie a part of tho highway
north. He, the minister, though', the
I logging companies should, contribute
j something in thc way of material towards the road; they should be in- '
, tcrestcd enough to assist.
Provision had already been made towards doing the preliminary work and
he thought steps should be taken as
promptly and energetically as possible
to have the matter brought to the attention of the department and the
work put through at as early a date as
possible Personally, snid the Doctor,

"Four Sons" Has
Brilliant Cast1
Margaret Mann, tho little mother,'
"Muttercnen," of the four noble sons1
in the title role of "Pour Sons," now j
showing at ihe Gaiety Theatre. Courtenay. gives one of the finest charaot-;
erizations ever shown on the screen.    |
At the ripe old age of sixty, Margaret Mann reaches the pinnacle of film
fame by her simple and unaffected
portrayal of the grief stricken mother
who is left behind, all alone, when her
four sons march off to war. Woven
into this major theme is the brotherly
love of the four sons and their devotion to their mother.
Aside from the many touching
scenes of mother love, the film i
abounds in youthful romance, the!
sweethearts of two of the sons helng
played with great charm by June Coll-
yer and Ruth Mix, daughter of Tom
Mix, internationally famous screen
star. The boys are superbly played
by James Hall. Charles Morton, Geo.
Meeker, and Francis X. Bushman, Jr.
The entire cast was carefully chosen
by John Ford, who directed the picture with all the skill and genius that
he put into his other great successes,

Mr. Win. Douglas, who has full
charge of this annual function of the
board, said that it was a huge thing
and they were under very heavy ex-
and l)<fnses and he asked every member to
be present on the evening of the 17th
and report to either himself or to Mr.
A. B. Ball, chairman of the entertainment committee, and they would find
lots of work for them to do. Each
member would be notified by mail as
to what committee he would be required to work on.
The president. Mr. P. L. Anderton,
said that thc Klondyke Dance was the
only dance the board held during the
year and as their only source of rev-
lonlal 'enue waa Membership dues, they wished to put it over as successfully as
they could. They could only do this
with the full co-operation of the members and he asked that they mention
the dance to everybody they met.
Mr. A. B. Ball asked for the volunteered services of a sign-writer and
Mr. Wm. Rickson agreed to look after
the writing of the signs if furnished
the wording.

Golden Rule Sunday has been described 'is a by-product of Near East
Relief Work. Like those of industry
thin by-produd promises to vie In importance with tho parent activity.
What Is Golden Rule Sunday? Here
is the answer given by a little Japan-1
Editorial Department of the Relief Organization. "Once in Armenia and
Syria nearly a millian orphans, hav-
1 :g no home and food were wandering.
They were hungry, they could not cry
and died every d ty by hunger and
epltlemlc. Their fate was the crudest of those who survived the Great
War of the world. Much land was
laid waste by the war and by the
plundering of bandits. Over mountain
and rivers wandered the orphans who
were expelled."
"What was the cause of thin dis-
eso girl in Koynto. as quoted by tho  aster?    What did  their parenU  do?
They  insisted on
iheir religion. The enemy government planned to sevor all their lives.
Though they were shot dead Lhey died
bravely, gratified at tho fate given
then hy God. They bequeathed to
their childen the Bible In which was
the Golden Rule. Goh'.en Rule Sun-
da was established according to its
phrases. Indoed, I must remember
tliis day. Wc at school made hearty
contributions. May God bless every
poor orphan."
How aro we to observe Golden Rule
Sunday?  On this day in an Increasing
liberty of faith of number of families the principal meal
Is a simple repast such aa would ho
partaken of hy the orphan children ot
the devested lauds surrounding Asia
Minor, who have been cared for by
kindly people of man., nations including our own. When partaking of this
simple fare, tho hearts of all go out
to the homeless and suffering, and a
worthy contribution Is made to their
support and help. A3 the movement
grows and fires the heart of mankind
tho day 1b brought measurably nearer
when thero shall be no more hunger,
loneliness or distress. .... FRIDAY,  APRIL 12,  1929.
