Banquet And
Dance Very
Successful
Cumberland.Welsh Society Celebrate
Annlveriary of Patron
Saint
Thc seventh annual banquet and
dance of the Cumberland Welsh Society was held ut the Cumberland
Hnll on Friday, February 27th, to
commemorate the feast day of St.
David, thc patron saint of Wales.
The affair, though on a smaller scale
than other years, proved a very
successful one, and fully upheld the
record attained hy the Society for
its high standard of entertainment
provided. Mayor Maxwell an his capacity as chairman opened the banquet at 8:16 p.m., and in a few well
chosen remarks expressed his pleasure in once again being present at
a time to which he looked forward
to so much. He complimented the Society in showing such initiative in
following up the customs of previous
years, in view of the depressing period through which we were passing.
Mayor Maxwell next called on the
audience to stand, the orchestra accompanying the singing of the Welsh
National Anthem "Hen Wlad Fy
Nhadan". The tables were laden with
tempting dishes and the popular faggots", a Welsh favorite food, were
handed round. A short concert followed the banquet, Mr. Robert Thomas, who was president of the Cymro-
dian Society of Victoria from 1927-
1930, giving an inspiring address on
the life and aims of St. David, who
was born in the year 472 A.D., his
father being the Prince of Cardiganshire. St. David died in the year 654
A.D. at thc age of 82 years. Mr.
Maurice Thomas, well-known tenor,
rendered a Welsh favorite "Ar Hyd
Y Nob" that was much appreciated
by the audience. Mr. Alf Pilling delighted the assembly with trombone
solos first, "Absent"; second "The
Rosary", both being well received.
Mr. Sam Jones sang "Mona" giving
"Garden of Flowers" as his encore.
Mrs, W. Warren chose "Somewhere a
Voice is Calling" as her first number
responding to the encore with "Sun*
shine of Your Smile". Mr. Robert
Thomas, eloctulonist, gave two humorous readings that delighted the
audience. Mr. E. Sinclair sang
"Trumpeter" in his usual fine style
and Mr. H. Thompson played "Souvenir" as a saxophone solo. Mrs. A.
G. Jones was the accompanist for the
concert.
The dance started promptly at 10
p.m., the hall being cleared of tables,
etc., in time. The Merrymakers' orchestra was in attendance and provided excellent dance music for old
and new dances. Mr. T. McMillan
carried through his duties of floor
manager in a very capable manner.
The orchestra, urged by the dancers,
consented to play an extra hour, the
dance finishing at 3 a.m. Following
the usual custom of the Welsh Society entertained the children of the
members at an enjoyable dinner,
dance and concert, upwards of 65
children sitting down to the heavily
laden tables. Members of the Merrymakers' orchestra were in attendance
and added to the children's enjoyment, the members wives and children being the guests of the Socfety
for the afternoon. The following
children took part in the concert:
Songs: Nita Pilling, Madeline Warren, Annie Turner, Jean Brown, Dolores Parkcs, Jackie Price, Bert Williams and Ray Rees; recitation, Irene
Morgan and cornet solos by Jackie
Williams and Jimmy Jackson. The
kiddies had a wonderful time and to
show their appreciation gave three
cheers for the Society and the same
for the orchestra who had so kindly
donated their services.

operation of the company in that district.
Whippets Suffer

Thc Cumberland Whippet badminton club have fallen on evil days and
the players appear unable to beat any
club in the district. Individually there
are in thc club as good players as
are to be found on the Island, but
whether it is a case of nerves of lack
of team work it is hard to determine.
On Monday the badminton club of
the Young: People's Society of the
Cumberland United church were
hosts to the Whippets and trimmed
them by 9 to 3, scoring 200 points to
the Whippets 162. Thc games were

Help For Coal
Miners Sought
Tariff on Fuel Oil Urged in Legislature by G. S. Pearson; Situation on Island
Victoria, March 5.—A tariff on
fuel oil entering Canada, to aid the
coal industry of British Columbia
over a "transient" period of depression to its rightful place, was backed
up in a vigorous speech by G. S,
Pearson, Liberal of Nanaimo, in the
Legislature Wednesday.
"We arc fighting on the Island for
our very life", he declared in a review of the inroads which use of fuel
oil by the railroads and pulp factories had made into thc coal industry.
Hc gave some examples: Some 12000
people today in the province have
had their means of support cut off by
the decline in the coal industry; fuel
oil imported into Canada in 1930
took the place of 1,000,000 tons of
coal; a railway company going
through the very coal districts used
oil for engine fuel.
In Transient Stage
"The railways and the industries
should realize their responsibility to
the coal industry which has largely
developed transportation," he concluded. "The coal industry is going
through a transient stage, from unscientific to scientific.* operations.
When we have passed that stage we
can well compete with fuel oil.
The resolution standing in his
name calls for a tariff increase on
fuel-oil entering Canada to such
amount as will enable the coal industry to successfully compete and to
place upon fuel-oil, which is thc residue of crude oil imported into and
refined in Canada, a tax which will
have the same effect.
A delegation has just gone to Ottawa with a petition to this effect
signed by 7600 people of the northern part of the Island, he explained,
and he considered his resolution to
be before the House at an opportune
time. Tom Uphill, Labor member of
Fernie, adjourned the debate.
FIRE DEPARTMENT
REPRESENTED AT
ISLAND MEETING.
Fire chiefs of Vancouver Island
from Saanich in the south to Cumberland in the north and Alberni on
the west held a most important meeting fn Nanaimo on Saturday last, the
principal matter for discussion being
the advisability of holding a provincial convention of all B.C. tire chiefs,
and preliminary to the holding of the
B. C. convention that the chiefs of
Vancouver Island should first meet
and discuss local matters prior to the
introduction and consideration of the
provincial convention.
The meeting Saturday night went
on record as favoring such a proposal and preliminary steps were taken
towards consumating the provincial
convention proposal. Among those
present at the meeting were: Chief
of Nanaimo; Chief E. Allen nnd Deputy Chief Dick Burke, of Alberni;
Chief C. J. Parnham and Deputy
Chief J. H. Cameron, of Cumberland

of Courtenay; Chief Gilson, of Ladysmith; Chief Ackerman, of Esquimau; Chief Sewell of Saanich. Dun-
ean was represented by Messrs Chester and Evans.
Whippets v. Courtenay
The Whippets sent a team of badminton players over to Courtenay on
Wednesday and were decisively beaten, only winning one game out of the
twelve played, scoring 223 points to
the victors 363, The games took on
an aspect of a local derby as the
majority of the Courtenay players
were Cumberlanders. Owing to lack
of accommodation here, many players joined up at Courtenay and the
games on Wednesday between these
friendly rivals were most keen. Following the inter-club games many
friendly games were played and refreshments served. Following are the
scores with thc names of the Courtenay players mentioned first in each
Instance:

Tuesday night on the occasion of the
showing by the Rev. John Antle of
the beginnings of the Columbia Coast
Mission by lantern slides and moving
pictures. The Rev. John Antle, the
founder and pioneer of the mission,
spoke ln a most convincing way of
the necessity of this great work.
Courtenay Feather
Pushers Defeat
Nanaimo Team
Although the victory of the Courtenay badminton team over the visiting Nanaimo team on Saturday evening was quite decisive, most of the
games were very hard fought, many of
them going to three seta with close
scores. The fact that some of tbe Nanaimo players were just recovering
from the 'flu' may have had something
to do with Courtenay winning by a
far larger margin than hoped for, the
result being nine games to three. The
scores were as follows, visitors' names
being mentioned first in each case:

Efforts Of High
School Students
Are Appreciated
Dramatic Entertainment Showed Result of Careful Training
in Limited Time
There was a large attendance nt
the dramatic entertainment presented by the Cumberland High School at
the Ilo-Ilo Theatre on Thursday night
and the efforts of the students of the
local high were accorded a great reception, especially for thc one-act
comedy, "The Pot Boiler."
The first item on thc programme
was a one-act comedy by George
Ade, "The Mayor and the Manicure"
produced by arrangement with Samuel French, New York. This comedy
showed Mr, W. Kelly as Mayor Mil-
ford, of Springfield, who also had
higher political aspirations, having
quite a session with Genevieve Le-
Clair, (Mrs. Kelly), who endeavored
to collect the sum of ten thousand
dollars from the Mayor, through the
latter's son, Wallie Mil ford (Douglas
Baird) having made violent love to
Genevieve whilst at College. The way
Mayor Milford wiggled out of the
situation to save his son who was engaged to be married to Ruth Foster
(Miss Bowering), caused roars of
laughter, with the result that Genevieve parted with some damaging
letters written by Wallie Milford
during his days at college, without
extracting a cent from the bombastic
Mayor. Finally out of the goodness
of his heart, the Mayor gave the utterly dejected Genevieve one thousand dollars, whereupon she took her
departure after wishing Wallie the
best of luck in his wedded life. The
comedy went over big, was clean and
full of many "wise cracks" by the
Mayor.
This short comedy was followed by
a musical operetta. "Princess Chrysanthemum," by C. King Proctor, and
was exceptionally well staged, some
of the costumes being wonderful creations. Chrissie Robertson as ..Princess Chrysanthemum", was very good
indeed whilst Sheila Conway as the
"Emperor What for Why" played
the part to perfection and rendered
her solos with a feeling worthy of
the occasion. Thora Keeler, as "Saucer Eyes, Wizard &*>., ' captivaUu
the audience with her portrayol of
n very difficult part. May Beveridge
as "Fairy Moon Beam," Edna Watson
as "Prince So Tru," Marguerite Herd
as "Prince So SU," and Alison Geekie aa "Top Knot, Court Chamberlain," supported the other members
of thc cast in a very worthy manner.
The solos were rendered very well
and the choruses showed the efforts
of intensive training. The training
had to be intensive as very little time
was left for the musical part of the
operetta. The efforts of the whole
cast were thoroughly appreciated
and the tutors of the students are to
he congratulated..
Ladies in waiting, beautifully
gowned were: To-To (Audrey Phillips), Yum-Yum (Dora Turnbull),
Du-Du  (Hisako), Tulip (Cazuko).
"Princess Chrysanthemum," wajs
followed by a comedy in one act,
"The Pot Boiler," by Alice Gersten-
berg and was of a very hilarious nature. The scene opens with Thomas
Pinnacles Sud, a playwright and director, admirably portrayed by Wilton Dalby, going over some manus-
scripts when Mr. Wouldby, a novice,
appears on the scene. Mr. Wouldby
is desirous of getting some idea of
the work of a playwright and director and is invited to stay as Thomas
Pinnacles Sud is about to have a rehearsal of a play hc has wYittcn. Miss
Ivory, as the heroine (Nina Shields),
Mrs. Pencil, the Vampire (Therese
Mason), Mr. Ruler, the hero (Dave
Hunden), Mr. Inkwell, the villain,
(Wm. MacNaughton). and Mr. Ivory,
the girl's father (llryson Parnham),
endeavor to go through the rehearsal
as the playwright and director wants
it ,ond not as they thc actors want it.
The result is a vertiable scream from
beginning to end. The audience was
convulsed with laughter and showed
its appreciation. All characters in this
comedy were excellent, with Wilton
Dalby,  undoubtedly, the star.
Taken all round the entertainment
was a really worth while effort and
the high school staff is to he highly
complimented. For thc musical operetta, Cyril Davis, a high school student acted ns accompanist throughout.
Mr. and Mrs. R. Littler, Sr., Robert, Jr., Wilfred and Hilda and Mr.
und Mrs, M. Littler motored to Nanaimo on Friday en route to Vancouver to witness the hockey match
between the Vancouver and the Trail
"Smoke Eaters" of which the latter
teum their nephew .Harry Brown, is
a star player. The party were registered at the St. Francis Hotel while in
the terminal city and returned on
Sunday.
Bishop Officiates at
Ordination Service
Bishop of Colombia Ordains Vicar and
Conducts Confirmation
Service
Cumberland, March 2.—The Bishop
of Columbia Rt. Rev. O. de V. Schofleld
D.D., visited Cumberland on Sunday,
March lst. In the morning he ordained the vicar of Holy Trinity Church,
Rev. T. L. Hipp to the priesthood and
in the afternoon administered the rite
of confirmation to twelve candidates.
The unusual privilege of a rervice of
this kind attracted a large congregation of parishioners from Cumberland,
Royston and Union. The choir of Holy
Trinity church was augmented for the
occasion by members of St. John's
choir, Courtenay. At 10:30 the procession of clergy moved up the aisle to
the accompaniment of the hymn
"Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken".
Assisting were Ven. E. P. Laycock,
A.K.C., Archdeacon of Columbia; Rev.
G. L. Bourdillon. M.A., Vicar of St.
John's, Courtenay; Rev. A. W. Corker
of St. Peter's, Comox, and Rev. H. M.
Ellis.
The ordination sermon was preached
by the Rev. G. L. Bourdillon. Taking
as his text Psalm 132 and the 9th verse
"Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness, let thy saints shout for Joy",
the preacher dealt with the spiritual
life of the parish priest and with his
practical duties, stressing particularly
those practical gifts and qualities
which are of so great an advantage to
a priest in his parish work. Rev. Bourdillon pleaded for the sympathetic cooperation of the parishioners in the
work of their parish priest and pointed
out the necessity for a high spiritual
conception of their work in the church.
The Bishop proceeded with the ordination service and the Archdeacon read
the Litany and presented the candidate. After the singing of the hymn
"Veni Creator Spiritus" the Bishop
with the priest laid hands on the candidate and performed the ordination.
B.C. Will Tax
All Incomes
Make   Everybody   Pay   Something
Aim of New Proposals
Every citizen of British Columbia
will be required in future to pay one
per cent of his or her total income
into the provincial treasury, in addition to all existing taxes, so that this
province may meet its bills as it goes
instead of borrowing, and so that
land may be relieved of an intolerable taxation burden.
This, an brief, is the Tolmie government's solution of the present
acute provincial taxation problem, as
revealed to the Legislature Thursday
by Hon. J. W. Jones, minister of finance, in his first budget, the most
important budget by far of recent
times. It provides by the new universal income tax an extra revenue of
$2,500,000 a year of which $500,000
will be used to reduce land taxation
for school purposes in ull parts of
the province. This latter amount will
be applied to increasing the government's present grants towards teach-
ertf salaries both in municipal and In
rural school districts. It will be for
the municipalities and school districts
to see that it is not squandered but
actually used to relieve land owners.
The remainder of the tax, estimated for the next fiscal year at $2,-
000,000 is needed to close up u yawning gap in the government budget.
due to falling revenues and to Mr.
Jones' policy of paying as he goes.
Few Exceptions  Made
There are few exemptions from
the new tax. It will be levied on the
citizen's total income with no allowance off for dependents or for any
other expense. And it will apply to
al) persons making an income in the
province excepting only those who
receive not more than $12 a week;
those receiving mother's pensions,
old age pensions, war disability pensions und allowances; and those
whose income is derived from actual
farming.
Mrs. H. Reed and family, who have
been visiting Mr. and Mrs. A. Frew
for several weeks returned to their
home in Powell River nn Sunday.

En-flei' Teem Choirn
By virtue of a win over Nanaimo
Lumber Company, the local Eagles
soccer eleven advanced into the second round of the O. B, Allan cup
and are scheduled to meet thc fast
Southend Juniors at Nanaimo this
Saturday. The game will start ut 4
p.m. and a big crowd of spectators
is expected. The Southend Juniors
have n big following and as a good
brand of football is played by this
team an interesting encounter should
result of the meeting with the Eagles.
The  latter  will   be  represented   by
MINTO ELECTRIC IN
PROSPEROUS CONDITION.
The ninth annual meeting of the
Minto Electric Light Co., Ltd. held
recently showed the company, to be
in a very prosperous condition. A
very favorable report was turned in
by the secretary, Mr. J. Stalker which
showed that over Si!,200 invested in
new extensions to supply the various
parts of the district, and a revenue
also double that with which this
small company was started. In the
election of officers Messrs. Hickman
.1. Williamson and Vincent Bayly
were re-elected directors und Mr.
John Stalker manager-secretary.
Valley Pioneer
Passed To Rest
Interment   of   Mra.   Margaret   Lewis
Took Place Thi* Afternoon
The funeral of Mrs. Margaret
Lewis, of Courtenay, widow of the
late Mr. William Lewis, took place
from the Undertaking Parlors of Mr,
Sutton, Courtenay, to St. Andrews
church cemetery and was very largely attended, many from Cumherland
going over to the neighboring city to
pay their last respects to one who
was genuinely liked. Pall-bearers
were Messrs. H. B. Dawley, J. Slessor
Wm. Duncan, W. A. Urquhart. Theed
Pearse and Fred Field.
Mrs. Lewis, along with her husband, first came to the Comox Valley
fifty-four years ago, coming from
California where the lure of gold
took the couple into that country
from Wales. Arriving in the Valley,
the 150 acre farm of Mr. Charles
Green was purchased and this piece
of land included what is now known
as the City of Courtenay, on the east
bank of the Courtenay River. A little
later on Mr. Lewis bought another
stretch of land and went into dairy
farming. He was the first man to introduce Jerseys into the district. Mrs.
Lewis helped her husband considerably in those early days and was a
noted butter maker. Long before
Vancouver became a city her butter
was known at Nanaimo and Victoria-
She was a very keen business woman
and made frequent trips to Cumberland with the products of her farm.
During her many trips to Cumberland she formed friendships which
lasted until the day of her death. The
deceased was very popular in our
city and was a frequent visitor, even
after her retirement and was usually
a most welcome guest at the annual
celebration here of the patron saint
of Wales.
About 1910, shortly after the death
of her husband she went into retirement, living at her residence on the
Comox road since that time.
On taking sick recently, Mrs. Lewis was conveyed to the St. Joseph's
hospital, Comox, where her death
took place on Monday last.
The only relatives in thin country
left to mourn her loss are Mr .and
Mrs. Tom Griffiths, who came out
specially from Wales to live with and
take care of her.
Budget Highlights
Universal tax uf 1 por cent on
all incomes in addition to all existing taxes is imposed.
Now levy will aid municipalities and relieve land holders.
British Columbia expects lo
spend $28,080,030 In the next
fiscal year and t.ike In $28,086,*
096, leaving an estimated surplus of ?8,i>«fi.
New loans in the next fiscal
year will total only $5,000,000
the smallest amount in recent
years ,of which but $2,500,000
will be for new road Construction and $2,000,000 to repay the
present year's deficits, largely
on unemployment  relief.
The present revenues of the
province can not yield more than
$24,750,000 in fixed charges
$0,000,000 for ordinary running expenses. Hence increased
taxation to close up the gap.
Reflecting general economic
conditions, revenues of thc* government dropped to the amount
of $R72,000 in the first nine
months of the present fiscal year
below the income of R similar
period a year ago.
The last budget of the former
liberal government is alleged to
have misinformed the public to
the amount of $4,400,000 by
pudding revenue estimates und
reducing expenditure estimates.

Ottawa, March 4j (Special to the
Islander).—tnterestdng evidence of
the interdependence of one section
of the community upon another was
furnished during the public hearings
on tariff matters which have just concluded.
It has long been i i-cognized, of
course, that industrial Canada cannot be prosperous when agricultural
Canada is in distress hut the relative
measure in which one industry reflects the condition of others is not
so generally understood.
Hearing a protest of automobile
importers aguinst customs regulations which fix their discounts at not
more than 20 per cent Mr. Bennett
summed up the facts which led to the
action taken. The Government had
been satisfied, he suid, that the course
taken was the only one to prevent
destruction of the automobile industry in Canada. Not only was the motor industry faced with annihilation,
but concrete evidence had been submitted to show that 500 other industrial plants in Canada would go out
of business with the motor plants,
while an aditionul 200 plants claimed
the same fate awaited them.
There are probably not more than
a dozen auto manufacturing or assembling plants in Canada, yet they
carry with them the destiny of from
500 to 700 other organizations. And,
if those other organizations be canvassed ,it will be found that they in
turn affect the well-being and prosperity of thousands of employees in
thousands of other businesses. The
net spreads so thnt the business of
every large basic or secondary industry directly, or indirectly, affects
every Canadian business and every
Canadian. The incident of the motor
industry only makes that lesson clear.
The hearings of tariff representations by the cabinet fell short, of public expectations, due mainly to the
fact that those having briefs to submit bad already presented them to
thc Govcrrtntsnt and wore content to
rest their cases. Only four public
hearing's were held and three of these
lasted but a few minute?.
At one hearing the "Consumers'
League" appeared revamped as "the
Canadian Council of Agriculture".
The spokesman, Mr. K. J, Deachman,
protested tariff declaring that tariffs
increased the cost of living to farmers. Mr. Bennett asked if the Canadian Council of Agriculture favored
taking duties off fruits, vegetables
and dairy products and Mr, Deachman replied in the affirmative.
Almost Immediately a cyclone of
protests whirled into the capital.
Fruit, vegetable and dairy producers
denounced the Doachman attitude as
wholly unrepresentative of the industries concerned and declared that
neither Mr. Deachman nor the so-
called Canadian Council of Agriculture spoke for them. Protective tariffs were imperative, it was claimed.
if these brandies of agriculture were
to succeed.
Mr. Bennett announced that close
upon 1,000 briefs had been submitted
to the Government asking advances
or decreases in tariffs during the
coming session of Parliament. All
these applications have boon studied
by departmental officials as well as
by the cabinet. Many will be allowed

REDUCING THE FISH LIMIT
ANGLERS will, undoubtedly, give general approval to the new Dominion order-in-eouncil
reducing the daily limit for fishermen from
25 to 15.
Fifteen fish of more than eight inches in length
are plentv for any fisherman. In fact, most of lis
are quite tickled if we can get half a dozen fail-
sized specimens. It has usually been our lot to
come back empty-handed and we were always envious of the man who talked about getting his
limit all the time.
The taking of 25 has usually been confined to
the brook trout, and it seems a pity tu remove
these little fellows in such a daily quantity from
our streams. Insofar as the lake fish are concerned
no one could have any legitimate use for 25 each
day.
none of its real wealth. It is living saner than
when everyone was unrestrainedly optimistic.
The time has come to cast off our doubts and
fears, our hesitancy and timidity, our spasm of
"nerves". The time for fresh planninng, new
enterprise, hard work, driving force, initiative,
concentration on business is here. Let's go.
With leaders of our coal industry at Ottawa,
consulting with the government in an effort to
bring about protection for our trade with a fair
prospect of getting that measure of protection to
whicli we are justly entitled, we have nothing to
fear for the future. Let's all give business generally a boost. Snap out of it!

CURRENT COST Wi PER CENT DOWN
THE reduction in lighting rates in Vancouver
since 1917 is now 60 per cent.
Progress is so fast in the electrical industry
that the old figures of 03 per cent, reductions are
now out of date. In 1917 the rate in Vancouver
was 8.8 cents net per kilowatt hour. Today the
average rate is 3 cents a kilowatt hour. The difference, 5.8 cents, figures out at practically 00 per
cent of the old rate.
If you include the Hat rate water heating, which
costs* about half a cent a kilowatt hour, bringing
the average for a house down to about 1 cent a
kilowatt hour, tho reduction is even more startling.
There are very few communities on this continent, if any, which can claim a reduction in lighting rates of this size, and it has all been done voluntarily by a privately owned public utility company.

INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH
TIIK PRODUCTION of British Columbia coal could be
increased by 5(JU,6U0 tons a year giving employment
lo 1000 men, support 5,00o people and adding $1,-
800,000 lo thc annual payroll of Briti'h Columbia if the
railways used pulverized coal instead of oil on B, C. lines.
Tbe only thing which prevents the use of pulverized
coal is lack of research to devise equipment to allow it
lo be used. Until such equipment is perfected oil will
increasingly displace coal on the railways.
This is a problem for joint action by the collieries and
the railroads.
Let tbe Dominion Government increase its present ridiculously low grant of only about $600,000 a year to
the National Research Council, and turn tbe Council loose
on a few such industrial problems, instead of so limitim;
thc appropriation that the Council is forced to confine
its attention to pure unapplied and theoretical research.
In Canada today, when our most pressing problems are
industrial. Government spends $25,00(1,000 a year on its
militia and only $500,000 on research. Let the two grants
be traded for live years, if no other funds are available,
and tiie aspect of Canada will be transformed.
Consolidated Mining and Smelting at Trail finds it pays
to maintain a research department more up-to-date than
even its mechanical and power plants. Canadian business
pays tlie Government millions a year in taxes. Let the
Canadian Government spend some of this money on research and we'll need less protection.
By research, in this instance, is meant the practical,
workable application to Canada's business of scientific
discoveries made already. There is no point in multiplying theoretical findings which remain in annual reports
of institutes.
Turn our college trained young men loose on practical
problems, and you will check their exodus to the U. S. A.
and increase Canada's producing power.

Questions concerning health, addressed to the Canadian Medical Association, 184 College St.,
Toronto, will be answered per-
WHAT TO WEAR
Dross according to the weather,
not according to the time of the year.
The amount of clothing required depends upon the temperature, not
upon the month or day of the year.
Individuals differ; some require to
wear more clothing than others in
order to keep warm.
The amount of clothing required
also depends upon occupation and
upon working conditions .In a heated
room, no move clothing is required
than i.s worn out of doors in summer.
Too much clothing causes the body
to perspire excessively and then, almost surely, chilling occurs when the
individual goes out into the cold.
The habit of not removing outdoor clothing when sitting indoors
causes perspiration with subsequent
chilling, and sometimes this is followed by a cold or some other infection .Chilling of the body should be
avoided, nnd it is pointed out that,
as we have said, chilling usually results from too much clothing rather
than from an insufficiency.
The feet should be kept dry. If we
get our feet wet nnd then sit at home,
or nt school, or at work, our feet are
chilled while the rest of the body remains warm. In some way, this favours the occurrence of colds. If the
feet do become wet, shoes and stockings should be changed and tbe feet
given a brisk rub with a towel,
Underclothing is requited to protect the outer garments from the perspiration of the body. It also serves
ns a covering which may he changed
as the temperature change.*:. The
outdoor worker in winter usually
needs to wear Woolen underwear in
order that he may keep warm. Wool
has the advantage of absorbing per*
BpiraUon and nf allowing hapid evaporation; in this way the wearing of
woolen garments prevents chilling.
Underclothing should be changed
as often as is required to so at*, to
keep it clean. Soiled underwear is
offensive, and, besides, it favours the
occurrence of skin diseases.
Much discomfort and actual disease may be avoided by giving some
attention to clothing from a health
point of view. The body covering
should be clean. Clothing should be
sufficient to keep the body warm. Too
much clothing, which causes perspir-
ntion, leads to the chilling of the
body. Sitting with wet feet predisposes to colds, so the feet should be
kept dry. Kemove out-door clothing
when indoors, and put on additional
clothing before going out.

Modern science has not yet discovered why it is that even in families
of highest Intelligence then1 is occasionally a child who falls far below
his brothers and sisters in intelligence. Unable to receive much, if
any, benefit in tlie schools, these children, until recently, were allowed to
grow up largely ignorant and untrained in ways of making a living.
It was perhaps natural, therefore,
thut they should, in one way or another, often get into serious trouble.
A large percentage of vagrants,
paupers, petty criminals and prostitutes belong to this clas.s.
With better understanding of the
nature of their trouble, it is now possible to recognize them at an early

majority of the smaller towns, and in
places where there are only a few

In another way present arrangements do not go far enough. These
classes are, of course, in grade

girls, which take these children after
sixteen and finish their training.

GOOD OLD CHURCH |
PARADES
I By Frank MIELL j
i        In tlie North Shore Review j
Looking over an old army magazine recently, I came across—and
chuckled over—the following comment :
"We are glad to note that our ser-
genn'.-majors hold thut proper respect
shouid bo shown on church parades.
Last Sunday, some of tho men neglected to remove their caps when inside the church. Said thc C.S.M.. 'You
men .take off your caps. Where the
h— do you think you are, anyway?"
flood old church parades! Compulsory religion, for which you were
tugged C. of E. (Church of England)
O.D. (Other Denominations) or R.C.
(Roman Catholic). It was no use
complaining that you were an atheist,
or a Freethinker, or a Holy Roller—
any of these either shoved you in
with the O.D. or got you a day's labor
or. a messy fatigue. If you were fond
of music, you went in the C. of E.
parade which was led hy the brass
band playing "Onward, Christian
Soldiers."
Church parades were compulsory,
yet I've known of a company leaving
the parade ground a hundred and
twenty strong, and land at the church
with only the sergeant major to it!
This happened to the last company
in the parade. There wns a congestion
of traffic in the immediate area of
the camp church, and the S.M. was a
bit deaf and stiff necked. Huts lined
the paths, huts built level but on
steeply sloping ground, so that while
the east ends were flush with the
ground, the west ends were set on
piles four feet high. The parade
stopped, but the band went on playing. With one accord this rear company dived underneath the huts faster than they had ever taken cover
from an air raid. The parade moved
on. At the church, the S.M. turned
to give his orders. "No 6 company!"
he yelled. Then stopped, his eyes
starting out in unbelief, his jaw
agape, for he had no company to give
orders to. But, he yelled again, "To
h— with you all!"
We hadn't a large number of R.C.s
in one depot, but they were all good
Catholics. They went to church in the
town, a mite or so distant, and not
one of them tried to heat parade. A
sergeant was always in charge of
them, and always he marched them
back very regimentally. They were,
in fact, a shining religious example
to all the depot; that is, until one fine
day the priest turned up at the depot
orderly room.
"Has this depot no Roman Catholics?" he asked.
"Why, surely!" he was told, and
the orderly sergeant produced the
parade statements for thc past few
weeks to prove his words. These
showed around fifty R.C.s on parade.
"That's strange", commented the
priest, "They haven't been to mass
for a very long time."
Quite true, it turned out. They
hadn't. That sergeant had marched
them off the parade ground after inspection, along the main pike towards town, up over the cliffs to a
nice, quiet cove for a bath. After
the bath, he marched them to a cottage where they had a standing Sunday order for tea and cakes. Then,
he formed them up again, and marched them back to the parade ground
to be dismissed, according to the
army Hoyle. But never again. They
went to mass after thatl
*    *    *
A number of sergeant instructors
in a certain depot grew so lax over
church parades that their numbers
dwindled from a hundred and fifty to
twenty-flve. This riled old Tommy,
the training sergeant major, so much
so that he determined to cure them.
He addressed them on the Saturday
morning.
"Now listen, you blighters! Every
man jack of you who hasn't a weekend pass will go on church parade tomorrow morning, or he'll find ham-
self on the carpet on Monday." He
consulted a list in his hand. "I've got
you all here. There'll be sixty-five C.
of K., sixty-one O.D.s and eleven
R.C.b" The instructors chuckled.
They knew old Tommy lived in the
town, and liked his Sunday morning
bed as well as the next man. They'd
heard it all before. Therefore, they
carried on in their usual Sunday
manner, most of them not bothering
to get up for breakfast. They were
rudely awakened. A sergeant burst
an the huts. "Get a wiggle on, fellers!
Old Tommy's here—on the warpath."
Blankets were tossed aside, men
shook sleep out of their system with
a jerk, and there began one of the
funniest games of hide and seek one
man ever told another about. As old
Tommy would enter a hut, a mob of
half-naked men, carrying clothes and
hoots, would hurst helter-skelter
from the other end, and beat it to a
hut Tommy had just left. All Tommy would find was two or three industrious, and very blank-faced,
dense soldiers, cleaning buttons. He
soon caught on and then thc real fun
started, for old Tommy hnd a fine
sense of humor. He kept those fellows dodging from hut to hut nt such
a brisk pace that they hadn't time to
get dressed. Finally, with a masterly
flank movement, he trapped about
thirty of them. He looked them al!
over with a shrewd gaze. "I've got
you all!" he chuckled. "You'll all be
on church parade an fifteen minutes
—and properly dressed!" And they
were!
Good old church parades! They
never harmed a soldier!
SALMON PACKING FIRM
CONTINUE ADVERTISING
Teat Proves Sales Campaign in Newspapers  Is  Effective  Says
Fishing Executive
Vancouver. — Definite assurance
that the "Clover Leaf" salmon advertising campaign, which commenced on January 18, will be carried on
during the ensuing months of 1981,
is given in a statement issued here
liy Mr. Richard J. Gosse, Managing
Director, British Columbia Packers,
Limited.
The "Clover Leaf" salmon advertising has appeared in newspapers of
Canada during the months of January and February. Mr. Gosse's announcement means that it will be
continued, and probably be enlarged,
after the first half of this year.
"Response to our advertising at
thc end of the flrst two months justified our faith in this arm of merchandising and the marketable surplus of
Canadian salmon has been greatly reduced", states Mr. Gosse.
"Salmon sales everywhere in Canada have been greatly increased by
the "Clover Leaf" campaign. Our
experience has heen the same as that
obtained by every other industry that
adopted modern business principles
To direct attention of consumers,
Canadian industries must advertise."
"We have also found that newspapers constitute one of the most responsive types of media for speeding
sales. The whole foundation of our
campaign was laid in newspapers,
and sales immediately followed the
appearance of our advertisements".

Courtenay Man
Appointed Census
Commissioner
J. N. McLeod, of Courtenay, has
been appointed census commissioner
for the Comox-Alberni electoral district and will commence his organization at once.
Plans are being formulated according to R. H. Coats, chief commissioner
of the Dominion Bureau of Statistics,
to make the forthcoming census the
most complete in history of the Dominion.
Working under the direction of each
commissioner will be a large number
of enumerators who will canvass every
building in the district and question
the occupants.
Work will start on taking statistical
information on June 1, and it is expected that such an intensive drive
will be made to gather all available
information required, that the returns
will be completed by July 1.
Immediate Start
The duties of the commissioners will
require them to commence work almost
Immediately In order to organize their
forces and instruct enumerators in the
proper manner of collecting data.
It is mandatory that citizens answer
the questions of the enumerators, and
any failing to do so, or obstructing the
taking of the census are liable to heavy
penalties.
5,000 FACTS ABOUT CANADA
"The Dominion in a Nutshell" is
the arresting sub-title of the widely
known annual, "50OU Facts about
Canada," compiled by Frank Yeigh,
the recognized authority on the Dominion through his writings and lectures, This HO-page booklet, now in
its 28th year, has become indispensable to thousands of Canadians,
while it is in increasing demand from
other countries desiring to learn of
Canadian conditions. 50 chapters,
ranging alphabetically from "Agriculture" to the "West" and "Yukon"
tell the story of the country's progress in a series of brief crisp sentences easy to locate and assimilate
*■—a story thnt is both cheering nnd
stimulating. It is extensively used by
governments, corporations, colleges
and schools, and also as a means of
"selling Canada' 'to people in other
lands. It is therefore a most valuable
advertisement of the Dominion. Most
news dealers carry it, or it may be
had, nt 85 cents a copy, from the
Canadian Farts Pub. Co., 588 Huron
St., Toronto 5.
Abandon Idea Of
Mine At Nanoose
It will be remembered that Clifford W. Haney and Douglas Forbes,
both of central British Columbia, ac-
rived in Nanoose several weeks past,
with the intention of mining for coal
along the shore of Nanoose.
As far as these two gentlemen are
concerned, the proposed work has
been abandoned. While it is reported
to be evident that there is a large
amount of coal there, and only a short
distance below the surface—as compared to the usual depth—they state
that transportation of the product
would be too high, inasmuch that by
sea would be the only means of transit
from that particular location, unless
they went to great expense In order
to secure other methods.
Local Eagles
Defeat Tyee A
Football Team
Score 4-2 Win to Complete  League
Schedule Without Loss
On Sunday last the Cumberland
Eagles travelled to Campbell River
to meet the Tyee A team of Quathiaski Cove in the final game of the
Upper Island League. Although it
rained during the entire ninety min-
ture of the game was the fact that
grass one, wns in fair condition. The
result wns a 4-2 victory for the
Eagles, the local team hns not suffered a single defeat throughout the
entire league. A commendable feature o fthe game was the fact that
not one foul was awarded for rough
play. Thc Kagles and Tyees getting
along like two bugs in a rug—now
"ain't that sumfin' " inasmuch as a
contemporary would like to brand the
locals as the world's roughest players.
The game started at 2 p.m. in a
drizzle of rain which continued
throughout, and from the kick-off
the Eagles took on the offensive.
After several minutes of play Stant
scored the opener, the shot resulting
from a scrimmage in front of goal
and taking the goat-keeper by surprise. The same player made it two
shortly after on a peach of drive.
Gibson scored the third and last of
the half when he duplicated Stant's
first goal. The Tyees made several
promising rushes during the half but
finished rather poorly, J. Barfleld at
inside left being the originator uf the
rushes,
The second half was only minutes
old when Howay put the locals four
up with a nice shot. With four goals
to their credit the Eagles were content to let the score stand at that.
With the Eagles playing defensive
ball the Tyees increased their efforts
and after much end to end play, the
Tyee centre received a pass and beat
the backs to score the opener for his
team. Back came the Tyees from the
kick-off and after much pressing Tobacco was unfortunate enough to
have the ball strike his arm in the
penalty, referee Carney promptly
awarding a penalty. The Tyee half-
hack H. Moon took thc kick and gave
Walker no chance to save. Shortly
after the centre-off the whistle blew
for full time.
The teams were:
Tyee's: W. Roberts. T. Assu and
J. Windram, (I. Dick, H, Moon and
A. Sambrook, C, Peterson, J. Barfleld
J. McLean, II. Assu and T. Price.
The Eagles: Walker, Brown nnd
Bickle, Tobacco, Conrad and Weir,
Howay, Gibson, Campbell, Stant and
Bartholdi.
One upon a time an enterprising
poultryman crossed his hens with
parrots to save time. He used to
spend much time hunting the eggs,
but now the hens walk up to him and
say, "Hank, I just laid an egg. Go
get it!"
