COURTENAY, Dec. 7.—Courtenay
High School's girl basketball team
stepped Into the limelight last Friday when they defeated the fur-famed
Nanaimo High Scliool quintette on
their own floor by iv 6-4 count. It
was anybody's game right up to tlle
linal toot of the whistle and the large
crowd of fans who had assembled at
the Nanaimo Scliool gymnasium were
kept right on their toes.
The Courtenay squad drew lirst
blood when tlielr dimlutive right wing
Gwen Fairbairn, sagged the hemp toward the end of the first period. No
further scoring ensued In this half.
After a brief respite, Nanaimo bas-
kcters came back strong and their
sharpshooters rained tn shots from
all angles. Their efforts were rewarded when Iteitn Weeks notched a
brace of baskets to her credit. Lottie
Swan, the star guard of the Courtenay
quintette, kept her In close check for
the rest of the fracas.
The play, whicli had been very
close, suddenly opened up about five
minutes from time and before the
Nanuinio crowd had time to realize
what was happening Gwen Fairbairn
and Hazel Warren scored In rapid
succession and won the game for
their team.
(ourlriiuy Boys Lose
The Courtenay boys were not so
successful und suffered a 41-6 defeat
at the hands of their more experienced rivals. On the way home,
however, they took the long end of a
14-13 count against Parksvllle. The
Courtenay girls continued their winning streak at Parksville and were
declared victors by an 8-3 score.
A return gnme has been arranged
with Parksville In Courtenay on Frl-
Trustee Kerton. of the Courtenay
School Board, was spokesman for a
delegation from Courtenay on the
matter of manual training at Tuesday's meeting of the Cumberland
School Trustees. Mr. Kerton began
his address by stating that this district had nrrlved at a point where
manual training had become absolutely necessary as part of the curriculum
of local schools if the pupils are to
be thoroughly educated for any line of
work they may take up In future life,
and for this reason Courtenay Trustees   were solidly  behind  the   move-
ever, the government grant would
approximate $505, so that the cost to
each Board would be about $800 per
annum. Having outlined the scheme,
the speaker then waited for the
approval of the Cumberland Board.
Trustee Mrs. MacNaughton moved
that manual training and domestic
science be proceeded with by the
Board, tho motion carrying after a
short discussion. Trustee McKinnon
pointed out tliat there was at present
no place suitable for domestic science
but there was plenty of room for
manual training,  (presumably In the

that the inclusion of Comox and the
Tsolum Schools In the scheme would
cut down the efficiency of the instructor, suggesting Instead that ho confine ills work to Courtenay nnd Cumberland only, spending 2 days at the
former and 3 at the latter, or 21/*. days
at each school.
Mr.   Kerton  presented roughly  the
estimated   cost   of  the   project.   The
Mr. Kerton thanked the Board for
their approval, withdrawing alter
stating that he would take immediate
steps to put the decision before Mr.
John Kyle, of the Dept. of Education.
To establish manual training and
domestic science in Cumberland wlll
take considerable time, and It is expected that a start can not be made
before February, 1927, at the earliest.

Local football fans were disappointed last week-end on learning that
Sunday's game between Cumberland
and Qualicum had been postponed.
The manager of tlie team from the
summer resort phoned a request for
postponement on Saturday night, glv
Ing inability to field a full team as
his reason. Sunday was an ideal day
for soccer and for tills rbason.it was
a pity tliat the game Iiad to be called
off.
Courtenay and West Coast United
took advantage of the weather, however, and played off their scheduled
league match at Alberni. The West
Coasters came out on the long end
of a 3-2 score, after a hard fougln
game ln which neither team hud any
marked advantage. The referee gave
some rotten decisions, one of which
the Courtenay boys are protesting.
After blowing his whistle for a foul,
the Alberni centre scored a goal
which the referee allowed to count,
ignoring the fact that he had already
blown for an Infringement.
Courtenay has duly lodged its protest, and until this is thrown out or
sustained West Coast United wont
know whether or not it can lay claim
to second place in the league table
as credited above.

Huge Success
That Santa Claus has come to Cumberland is an established fact. The
writer at first did not believe it, but
small bands led him firmly aud surely
in the direction of tho Parish Hall
last Wednesday afternoon, and sure

hall was tho open lire place with a
cosy red fire in It. A couple of small

there wus no Sunlit Cluus. I turned
to my litile guide1 and told him that
lie was a fraud, lie had led me on a
wild goose chase. With a knowing
grin he stuck il grubby band Into bis

THE CHS. "CHRONICLER"
Editorial
THE BIBLE IN TIIE SCHOOLS
It seems strange that the Bible,
wherein is written the principles upon
which our law and social organization
is based, is not taught ln the public
and high schools of our province. The
Christian religion, our state religion,
Is not taught nor Its principles explained. True, there are institutions
for such, but most children have an
aversion to Sunday School.
The Bible is regarded by literary
and scientific men as the greatest
book ever written. It contains In its
numerous pages philosophy, poetry,
mprals, science, geography and general information, etc. Several very
famous men, among whom was Abe
Lincoln, took as their model for
speaking and writing English—the
Bible.
If the Bible were Introduced In the
schools we certainly do not wish It
to be made compulsory to all students. The Christian religion Is not
the only real religion, there are others
suited to the temperament and environment of other races. Rather would
we banish it from the schools than
force our conceptions of religion on
those who differ In their belief. Nor
do we wish to sing hymns of praise,
as these are Ineffective and a waste
of time to us. The Bible could easily
be tuuglit by competent teachers, and
there Is no need to' go Into abstract
theological discussions. Surely one
of tlie greatest, lu fact the greatest
book  ever composed  by man  would

MATRIC WIPES OUT DEFEAT
Last week Matric tried to wipe out
their former defeat and succeeded by
one point. The question was "Resolved that environment has greater
effect upon a person than meeting
different people." Minnie Harrigan
and Myrtle Calnan upheld the affirmative while on the other hand Gordon
Walker and Norma Parnham upheld
the negative.
Walker was feeling rather pugnacious as he attacked the affirmative
rather severely. He spoke well considering it was his first debate. Thc
others were experienced campaigners
and had no difficulty In speaking. The
verdict was 15% points to 16% in
favor of the affirmative.
The next debate will be held in
January on account of the Christmas
exams., and will be between matric
and first year. Matric hopes to give
them a thorough trouncing.
Adoption of minutes usually means
nothing more than a matter of routine
business, but at Tuesday's Trustee
meeting this rather unimportant but
necessury part of the business was
worthy of more, limn passing notice,

school Is confined to dabbing a conglomeration of colors on n few lines,
straight and otherwise. The Bible
can be of use to us when wo go out
into the world, but what earthly use
the typo of drawing ns taught In the
schools can be, we fall to see.
If anyone says that studying thc
Bible consists of "slssifled" rules and
howling words of Insincere praise to
the Almighty, you may as well know
you're listening to an Ignorant fool.
We wonder how many students
have asked these questions. Who
can answer them?
1. What does God look like?
2. Why did Christ appear at the
particular era He did and not before
or after?
3. Why did He not teach It to the
chosen few In the Holy Land, and
why that particular race?
4. Where Is Hell?
5. Why did He appear among the
lower classes and not the higher?
6. Are we sure His disciples understood nil His teachings?

WRITE EXAMS TODAY
To-day is the day of the Xmas
examinations. The students are very
light-hearted and gay, also confident.
They are oblivious to the cares and
worries of this hard, cruel world.
Soon they enter the classroom; there
sits Mr. Shenstone, Fate personified,
a cynical smile on his lips as he pictures their actions two hours hence.
The exum is on. Pens scratch and
scurry across the paper, a gentle sigh
us some fair maiden is "stumped" by
a question. Sometimes a groan or
two Is heard, but not always.
Time! calls Fate. The papers are
torn from the students' trembling
fingers. Now they Issue from the
room, In ones and twos. A sickly
smile may be seen. That is all. Tbey

themselves fools and kick themselves

On Friday, December 3rd, the Conservatives of Qualicum District held
a most enjoyable ball at the War
Memorial hall, Brrington, which
proved one of the most pleasing social
functions of tlie season. The floor
was well filled, and dancers from all
political factions were in evidence,
spending a most pleasant evening
with their Conservative friends, and
"that Tolmie feeling" became quite
Infectious. Excellent music was provided by Garde's Venetian five-piece
orchestrn from Nanaimo, who iu their
usual happy style kept the dancer..'
feet tingling merrily. The hall was
beautifully decorated fnr the occasion
and a dainty slipper was served under
tlle supervision of Mr A. C. Illll and
his capable staff. Between dunces
tombola drawings look place, and 14
valuable prizes were won by the lucky
ticket-holders. Dancing was kepi up
till two n.m.. when everyone reluc
tantly went home, voting thai if the
new Conservative policies come up to
t'ie standard of the entertainmeul
provided by the local association they
will certainly bo worth watching for.
Several delegates who recently re
turned from the Conservative convention were overlieord to remark that
they had had nearly as much fun at
tlic dance as they had at Kamloops
which is saying a lot!
Thc Qualicum District Association
lias only been In existence for a few
months, and is to be congratulated
on the excellent progress made In
such a short time. Further social
entertainments of a similar nature
are planned for the near future, to
which everyone in tlie district Is
looking forward to with keen anticipation.

EDWARD W. BICKLE
FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1926.
THE NUDGER Two men were seated on the
porch of a popular country
club when a big motor car swept around the curve
and stopped. The chauffeur jumped out and
opened the door for a fine-looking middle-eged
man who handed out his golf bag.
"That man who is just getting out of that car
is a nudger," remarked one of the men on the
porch.
His friend asked him what a nudger was, and
he said it was a golf player who nudged his ball
out of a bad hole with his foot, when he thought
nobody was Innkinf****. He also added that the man
... wealthy but that nobody would pla:.* with

bills, he returns his property at a low valuation
for taxation, he looks out of the window when the
waiter brings the dinner check, he dodges the
solicitor when a drive for welfare funds is on, he
never gives until you back him into a corner and
force him, hc will not serve on a committee seeking some public improvement, he takes all he can
get and gives as little as possible.
There are a lot of nudger* in the world and
they do not all play golf. In other words a
nudger is a cheater. The good-looking, wealthy
member of the country club was known among
his associates as a nudger and nobody wanted to
play with him.
The golf club is a great place to learn about
your friends. Keeping track of your strokes
presents a temptation to lie, edging your ball out
of a hole with your toe inspires you to cheat,     ,     	
leaving unfinished tasks to get out on the links can do is to warn and caution the children in our
on a fine afternoon causes you to neglect your own homes.   To guide them the best we can is
TIME TO WARN Two eminent scientists and
THE FLAPPER scholars of Europe have decided that the "new woman"
is a menace to civilization. These gentlemen,
Prof. Dr. Toth, noted university professor and
priest of Vienna, and Prof. Dr. Hellpach, eminent
German scholar of Berlin, agree that the increasing emancipation and freedom of the modern
woman is bringing about the decadence of our
modern society. Ever since the fall of Adam it
has been popular to blame it on the woman, and
the European critics are pulling no new stuff.
Nevertheless it must be admitted that the
emancipated female, so far, has not shown her
ability or willingness to meet the obligations and
duties of her freedom.
In North America, where she has been given
the right of the franchise, we find less than half
of them voting or taking any interest in affairs
of government.   The girls of pre-marriage age
are forming habits almost identical with those
of the men.   The over-estimation and over-,em-
phasis laid on sports, athletics, bodily cult and
play is beginning to become a veritable idol worship.   They are developing a leadership of the
body over spirit and intellect.   We all must admit
♦hat the short skirt, bobbed head and the use of
11 - tige and powder have centred the mind of the
.ing girl upon her body rather than upon her
. - o il.   The result of this is the advent of the gold
: **gcr and the flapper, among whom must be
• nd the mothers of tomorrow.
Delvers into history and students of civiliza-
ton tell us the glorification ofthe body in the
tai cult of today recalls the pagan cult of Venus
Aphrodite.   The continuation of these conditions means a return of the times of Nero and
Pompeii, with similar reaction upon state and
society
There is something in thc warnings of the
learned European doctors. Cleopatra, floating
lazily down the Nile, was pretty much of a flapper, and we all know what happened to her and
her people. The concentration of all thought on
sports, dress and the movies that is manifested
by the younger generation of today makes intellectual and spiritual progress impossible, and
must of necessity lead to a decadence of family
life and destruction of the state.
Summing up, these voices crying aloud in the
wilderness, urge a return to the old ideals. But
as they sang during the war, "How you goin' to
keep 'em down on the farm, now that they've seen
Paree?" Older heads see and appreciate the
chances our young people are taking. But ever
and always youth must be served.   About all we

PRISCILLA DEAN IS
QUEEN OF THE HAREM
IN "THE DICE WOMAN'
For tlic first time in her screen
career, Priscilla Dean, piquant Metropolitan star, plays the part of (Jueen
of an Oriental harem in her new starring vehicle, "The Dice Woman,"
which will be on view at the llo-Ilo
next Monday, December 13th, and at
the Gaiety tlie following evening. It
is said to he one of the most dramatic
pictures in which Miss Dean has
appeared since her success in "The
Danger Girl,"
Cast as the daughter of a man of
wealth, unappreciative of her home
and surroundings, and always seeking for new thrills, she moves in a
questionable set. Accused of complicity in a jewel theft she becomes
a stowaway aboard a steamer bound
across the Pacific. In the Orient.
suspecting everyone, she finds shelter
iu a respectable looking hotel which
is in reality, a gambling den.
Hero she renews ber acquaintance
with the various gambling devices
which caused her hurried exit from
America. Her beauty has lured many
a third Oriental, but she succeeds in
fighting them all off until one night,
wheu she is drugged and carried to
lhe palace of a Prince. She awakes
to lind herself tbe unwilling Queen of
the Prince's harem—and what a
charming queen she makes!
ANTIQUE SHOP SET
DEPLETES PURSES
Tiie llrsl day of work on "Scandal
Proof" nt the William Fox West Const
Studios wus rather disastrous to the
purse of Shirley Mason, dainty staler tiie picture nnd other players.
The company worked hf u Los
Angeles shop which boasts the most
exclusive oriental Jewels and trinkets
shown on the const.
Every minute that Shirley was not
actually required to face the cameras
she might he found gazing with u rnpt
expression nt some rare piece of
Jewelry. At lbc end of the day she
wns richer by several necklaces, and
rings mid brooches, but.Jier purse fell
very light. Other members of Ihe set
exchanged a week's salary for various and sundry jndes nml corals,
"Scandal Proof" and Muck Junes In
"Tlle Desert's Pi-Ice" will both lie seen
at the Ilo-llo Theatre nexl Wsdnes
dny, December 15th.
Pilled witli the romanco and drama
of Russia after the fall of the Czar,
"The Volga Boatman," Cecil B. De
Mllle's second Independent production
for Producers Distributing Corporation release, strikes out Into an
hitherto unexplored vein of strongly
entertaining photoplay background.
The great sons, "Tiie Volga Boatman"
served as the Inspiration for the story
which Konrad Beroovlcl wrote for the
screen. Leonora J. Coffee made the
(Mm adaptation.
Scene Laid in Russia
The tale Is laid in Russia at the
lime of tlie outbreak of strife between
the Red Army and the White Army of
the aristocrats. The dramatic interest centers In the contacts between
Elinor Fair, a lovely aristocrat, and
William Boyd, a sweat-stained, toil-
Iiiden boatman of tlle Volga. Theodore Kosloff plays a striking dumb
blacksmith, Victor Varconl, as Imperious prince and Julia Faye. an
exntle Tartar character, Robert Ede-
son Is given one of ills interesting
character roles, as the last of a great
line of Russian land owners.
Story Starts In the Volga
The story starts on the Volga, before the Revolution, and then swings
Into its stride when the overturning
of the Czar makes the whole nation
a seething caldron of upheaval. Servant becomes muster, and master-
servant. The highlight of the picture
is a great ball of the aristocrats Interrupted hy the shells of the Reds.
Later we seo the aristocrats In their
siiks and satins forced Into the harness formerly worn by the Volga
boatmen.
Simply n Lore Slurj
Tlie story points no moral and takes
mi sides. It is intended simply as a
love story nf a man and a woman
played against the most interesting
tapestry of. recent history. "The
Volga Boatman" will he tlie big feature at the ilo-llo Theatre for three
days beginning Thursday. December
lCth next. It is said to be perhaps
the inosl massive picture ever put out
by Cecil II. De Mille.
ACTOR IMPROVES
UPON LON CHANEY
Arthur Rankin is one of the few
screen actors who con sympathize
With Lon Chaney's screen twlstlngs.
For this actor has just Joined the
ranks of the contortionists which
Chaney heads. And, If anything, lie
is going him one better.
In "Old Loves and Xew," Marlon
Fairfax's production of E. M. Hull's
celebrated novel ."The Desert Healer," whicli comes lo the (Jaiety next
-Monday, December 13lh. and to tho
Ilo-llo Theatre the following night,
Rankin Impersonates a wounded war
veteran. It Is questionable whether
Chaney, for all his distortions, lifts
gone through a more severe ordeal.
All of Rankin's time on Ihe screen
is spent In a wheel chair. Hut, being
un able-bodied, vigorous young man,
It is necessary lo conceal his limbs
completely from the camera's ferret-
sliarp eye. Maurice Tourneur, who
directed "Old Loves and Xew," wlih-h
First National is releasing, required
ihiit Riiukln he ou bund for cal] nny
minute. Ho was nol permitted in
relax or straighten up. us the process
nf binding Is slow und complicated
because of the necessity of concealment.
Chniii-y's most fatiguing ordeal was
probably in "The Hunchback of .Voire
Dame." It wn ssnlil that ln this picture the strain compelled him to take
frequent relaxation. In his current
role young Rankin gels no such
opportunity for rest.
