The annual general meeting of the
Cumberland Parent-Teacher Association was held lu the Public School
on Monday evening last, with the retiring president, the Rev. W. Leversedge, ill lhe chair and In the an-'
sence of Dr. E. R. Hicks, Miss M
Mordy acted as secretary.
The president in his opening remarks snld lie was sorry that there
was not a larger turnout of the members, more especially as this was the
annual meeting and election of officers. He said he did not know
whether to proceed with the meeting
or not, but would leave lt for the
members present to decide. The
Rev. James Hood made a motion that
the meeting be postponed for one
week, and that all members be so
notified. The motion found no supporters. Mrs. Hood rising, said she
could not see the use of a postponement, the same situation would have
to be met with next week and she
strongly favored going ahead with the
meeting and those present so decided.
The President then thanked the association for the help they had given
hlm during his term of office and
said:
"Since my election a year ago, as
president of the Parent-Teacher Association of this City, I have consistently and honestly tried to carry on
what I considered the duties ot that
office with a view to the beat lnt»r-
ests of the boys and girls whose education ls our common concern., fn
the performance of those duties I
have everywhere met with the utmost
kindness and courtesy, from my own
colleagues, lhe teachers , the school
board, and the children. 1 wish very
gratefully to acknowledge at this
time their kindness and help.
The things which we, as an association have attempted, are, I think, matters of common knowledge, and I
wish to make reference to but one of
them, the attempt to secure the teaching of Manual Training and Domestic
Science in our school. We have not
attained complete success, but I believe that with tiie right sort of effort, the City Council can be persuaded to Include In their estimates for
next year a sum of money sufficient
for this purpose, and I would recommend that the executive of this association continue their efforts to that
end.
There are however certain observations which 1 wish to make, opinions
about our school which have been
forming ln my mind as the result of
my contact with lhe Teachers and
their work, and offered, I wish you to
believe, in no spirit of carping criticism but solely with a desire to stale
what 1 believe lo be true.     They are
purely my own ideas, and of their
value you must be the judges, whilst
I and I alone accept the fullest responsibility for them, as in a way
my personal confession of educational faith.
First, I believe that In order to secure the best results the school must
be a unit, with all the teachers sharing the same Ideals and consciously
aiming to produce In loyal co-operation with euch other the Anlshed pupil. In a very real sense the business of the school Is the formation of
character, and I wish to point out,
which is often forgotten, that the
foundations of the child's character
are laid, not in school, but in the
home. All through the life of the
child both before he reaches school
age and after, the Influence of the
home ls a very real factor In the
child's education. The materials
with which our teachers are compelled to work, are the boys and girls
we have In our own homes produced.
I wonder! do we sometimes expect
them to produce bricks wlthort
straw? But given the materials 1 believe it should be the aim of the
school to build character, aud if you
will permit the use of an Illustration
I would like to call the Department
of Education the Consulting Architects, the Principal, the Architect; th j
Teachers, the Craftsmen and the
School Board the Clerk of Works. If
the school Is to be an efficient unit
It must have a bead, In whom Is vested the fullest measure of responsibility and who exercises on behalf of
the community the fullest supervision. His aim should be tlle deciding
voice in all matters of common policy
and promotions in the school. He
should have a real voice in the choice
of his staff and In the allocation of
the duties and normally be the representative of the whole teaching staff
at meetings of the school board.
Further in my ideal school the various Craftsmen realize their lnter-de-
pendence ln the carrying out of their
important tasks, and with loyal and
painstaking effort, give the best of
their skill to the task. Where this
ls given it involves the recognition
that in the production ot the successful Entrance Pupil, every teacher has
had a part and deserves and ought to
receive the due meed of credit.
On the other hand we must be ready
to recognize that in the carrying out
of this work the teacher can only go
as fast as the average pupil. Everv
class has its proportion of very bright
pupils, who could make much more
rapid progress, the normal who require a tull term to accomplish the
same result, and the backward, who

Itnble one to an amateur ball player.

Rangers Gave
Big Surprise To
Nanaimo City
The Cumberland Rangers surprised
the Nanaimo falls by their great defensive display last Saturday In an
Upper-Island League soccer game
with Nanaimo City, although the latter team won, by the odd goal. The
Rangers are a team composed of
youths who, right from the start, set
a fast pace and kept going the whole
ninety minutes, although naturally
they were compelled to play a defensive game throughout the entire
period against their more experienced
opponents. But taking everything
Into consideration, they made a very
creditable showing iu their flrst league game.
Half-time came with no score by
either side, Nanaimo missing a few
good chances. Walker (Rangers)
gave a splendid display In goal. Five
minutes after half-time Watson scored, from a well-placed corner, Nanaimo's only goal, which incidentally
was the only goal of the game. The
Rangers were kept on the defensive
for the remainder of tiie period and
only kept the score down by the superb playing of the half and fullbacks and Walker in goal. The latter and Farmer, centre-half, were the
shining lights.
Vets. Defeat .Nortlifleld
The Nanaimo Vets, triumphed over
Northfleld by 2 goals to 1 at Nanaimo
on Sunday. The Veterans were a far
superior team but were very erratic
.n their shooting. Wilson, Indian
centre-forward of the Vets, annexed
both goals for his team, while Perry
scored for Northfleld from a breakaway near the end ot the game.
LiMlysmllh Trounces Porta
Ladysmith trounced the Davenports
by 3 to 0 at Ladysmlth. Heaps and

FIRST MEETING
The following communication has
been received by The Islander:
Bureau of Prov. Information,
Parliament Buildings,
Victoria,  B.C.,
Sept. 12. 1924.
Dear Sir;—
For the past four years, during
which time I have luid charge of the
Bureau of Provincial Information, I
have realized that tbe lack of a connecting link between this oflice and
the various Boards of Trade and publicity organizations In the Province
hns affected tlle efficiency of this
brunch of tlle public service. With
this fact in mind I am desirous of obtaining an expression of opinion from
the many interested bodies on the
subject of a joint publicity meeting,
either at a special conference or In
conjunct Inn wilh the convention of
tlle Associated Hoards of Trade.
Co-ordination of effort in publicity
work is essential to the progress of
British Columhlu. Each and every
community is affected by provincial
conditions, and I firmly believe thut
the march of progress will be advanced if loose ends ure gathered up and
wasted energy directed Into profitable
channels. 1 frankly admit thai this
office would function more etfleieni-
ly ff greater co-operation existed; and
possibly the snnie may be said of
other organizations.
I have no nuthorily to pledge tho
Government's support to such a meeting. My desire Is to obtain an expression of opinion from nil interested bodies in order that I may have
something definite lo place before Ihe
responsible  minister.
• Yours truly.

COURTENAY—A meeting of the
Girl Guides Association was held in
the club rooms on Tuesday afternoon
when a good attendance was registered. Great regret was manifest nt
the resignation of Mrs. ICapt.l Meredith as she has done a lot of excellent work since the troop was organized in Courtenay.
A letter was read from headquarters at Victoria containing a request
for a postponement of the annual
meeting from now until the end ol
the year. The request was acceded
to. Seven members were elected lo
act on the committee which now is
comprised of Mesdames Butters, Sutherland, A. Stewart, C. Smith, Pottiu-
ger, Piket, McPhee, Llddle, Hurford,
Halley, Dack and Cokely. It ls the
intention of the troop under the supervision of Mrs. Llddle to put on some
theatrical performances during the
coming winter.
DEER AND GROUSE
COMMIT SUICIDE
old days the weapons were repeaters,
today the hunters are.
A few days ago two local nimrods
were strolling through the woods
when suddenly they came upon an innocent looking buck. One said to
the other, "take a shot." His companion   replied.   "I   can't,   the  d	
tiling is empty." His meaning was a
little ambiguous, hut there is no doult
Ihat it was easy for his companion to
tumble.
The season until a day or two ago
has been exceptionally dry, but not
more so than some of the hunter i.
Some hunt wltll cannon ball; some
hunt for highballs. There are no
pitlampers now but some "still" hunt
under the lights. In modern language a   pltlamper is a  bootlegging
! hunter and while some do not object
to being called bootlegger not one Is
desirous of becoming known as a pit-
■ lamper.
The only casualties reported so far
have been to deer and grouse.     Some
. of these, not all. have been pure ac-
> eldent.. Some of these animals understand Ihe principles of safety first
I and make a getaway.     There is the
| case of a deer that Len. Roberts shot
at. lt kept ahead of the bullets and
got    away.      Hughie   McLean    came
' home with a buck that got in the way
of a bullet. Doc. Pottlnger was
lucky and  Dick Creech    and    Percy
j Booth brought home a deer that com-
! raltted suicide. Len Piket got a full
hag  of  grouse  the  first day  of  the
I season and others were fairly lucky.
| it is good to lie able to report no casualties among the hunters and it   is
I hoped that none will occur during the
> entire season.
CITY MAY ACQUIRE
AUTO CAMP SITE
COURTENAY.—At a regular meeting of the Courtenay City Council
held last Monday night a question
that will be of interest to the citizens
was discussed. It was that of securing a piece of property bounded by
the Puntledge and Tsoluin Rivers
and the Island Highway and whicli
includes the present auto camp. It
Ib proposed to purchase this for the
city and lt is thought by those in sym
pathy with the project that now is
the time to negotiate for the property
as it can be secured for two hundred
dollars an acre.
lt Is hoped to enlist the sympathy
and co-operation of the members of
the Courtenay-Comox Board of Trade
in the move and to that end a committee of the Council comprising Aldermen Hagarty, Pearse and Cooke
was appointed to confer wltll the
trade board members.
A grant of fifty dollars was made
to the Comox Agricultural and Industrial Society for the Annual Fall Fair.
A report from the Electric Light
department showed satisfactory progress. It has been decided to extend
the system two and a half miles along
the Anderton Road in the Comox District.
The cows at large question was
settled for the time being as a vote
will lie taken at the next civic election
on a pound by-law.

Really progressive advertisers are
no longer held back by any fear that
their advertising may have a beneficial influence upon the affairs of
their competitors. They have not the
least doubt along this line. They
used to have a suspicion that when
they made a forceful effort in behalf
of their merchandise, their competitors would be helped also. They suspect no longer. They definitely know
that their competitors are thus help-
I ed. But at the same time they realize the thing works both ways.
If there are ten large manufacturers putting out a similar line of goods
and five advertise, the other live na-
utrally are going to get a good part
of the benefit. But If all ten advertise, the general effort ln behalf
of that class of goods Is doubled. More
people are reached and all ten sell
more merchandise.
It ls of course going too far to say
there Is no competition ln advertising.
Necessarily there must be. But lt ls
pretty much of a co-operative affair
after all, when you get right down to
a real analysis.—Printers' Ink.
As a man thinketh so he Is.
If he doesn't think, he ain't.
And
The worst misfortune that can befall a man is to have an hour extra
for sleep on Sunday morning and then
wake up and be unable to use it.
A cultured man is one who can
trim you so courteously that you arc
ashamed to get mad.

! of 12030 Ulth Ave., Edmonton.
'    "My stomach has been out of order for some time, causing gas formations and shortness of breath.      I
would have a burning feeling in thc
, pit of It, accompanied by heartburn
and acid risings, I was chronically

. spells   and   terrible   headaches   that
I would last for several days.    My kid ■
, neys were weak, 1 slept poorly and
| had no appetite.
"One bottle of Dreco has made a
= j wonderful difference.     My  kidneys
1  are stronger, my appetite ls Improved
and I no longer have any discomfort
after eating.     I can sleep well now,
am  no  longer nervous  and  do  not
have that terrible worn out feeling.''

CAN'T BEAT THE GAME
The total sum ot money lost each
year in worthless stocks and securities is really appalling and yet men
and women otherwise sane and intelligent fall for this eternal effort to
get Bomething tor nothing. From
trying to ring a can at the country
lair lo Ihe buying nf fake oil stocks
lhe merry throng push madly on.
They have nut learned that one thousand made in some get-rleh-qulek
scheme will lie spent In some fool
way or losl again as sure as fat".
Tiie real value of money lo a mini is
liased on the way he earns it. Speculation sometimes wins, like a hob
tailed Hush, hut ll more often loses.
When a speculator does win. it is the
most dangerous thing he can possibly
do—it eggs hlm nn . A long-haired
friend of mine, who had had some experience in lhe market, told me recently that he didn't believe he had
ever made a dollar in speculation.
This man is a careful investor, does
not. gamble on margins, and buys only
listed stocks. Still, after years of
experience, lie says lie has not really
made a dollar. A man and his wife,
other good friends of mine, visited a
park and the wife became enthusiastic over the nlckel-in-the-slot mu-
chlne. She played all her small
change away and broke a bill for
more nickels to feed the machine.
"Come on," said the impatient husband, "you can't beat that game."
Hul the wife, with a woman's determination .kept on feeding nickels to
Ihe green star. After a long, long
time Ihere was a crash and the slot
machine vomited a pile of nickels as
big as your hat. "Now." cried the exultant wile, "you said I couldn't beat
il." They gathered up the pile of
coin and stacked il into dollars. There
were six dollars and fifteen cents in
the winnings. Inventory of the lady's
purse proved that she had fed eight
dollars into the machine. The husband walked away without a word.
What is the use trying to convince a
woman anyway?
Study the home life of most men who
have made money and a success In
business, and you will find their wives
have been thrifty women. Contrast
these successful partnerships with
those where the wife is a gadfly and a
social climber, and you will be surprised to rind how often the rule
proves good. More men are made or
unmade by their wives than by any
other human agency. Back of every
successful man you will find a seiu-
ible woman. And most of them get
mighty little credit for it.
A SCRAP OF PAPER
When you come to think of it, nearly as much can be accomplished today with a sheet of plain white paper, as tbe magician of old could encompass with all his charms and am .
lets and touchstones.
For a scrap of paper can be made
into a check which will carry a fortune half around the world. It can
he made into a deed which will transfer the possession of an enormous
property. I'pon it a warrant of arrest can be written; or a pardon.
The musician can compose upon It a
song that will ('heer the hearts of
millions. Or a poet, a verse that will
be passed on to future generations.
Yet withal, there is such an abundance of this commodity that It may
be freely used, not only for the rarer
purpose   of   commerce   and   art,   but

THE LETTER "E"
Someone has decided that the letter "e" is the most unforutnate letter ln the English alphabet because
it ls always out of cash forever In
debt, never out of danger, and in Hell
all the time. No little credit is due
however, in that it is never in war.
and always in peace. And we are
deeply indebted to this little letter
since it Is the.beginning of existence.
the commencement of ease and the
end of trouble. Without It there
would be no meat, no life und no

and although It starts off In error, it
ends by making live perfect.

man know how ninny eggs his pullets lay in a year*
The poultryman who is already
pedigreeing on his own account i:-
using the trapnest as are also thc
men who have birds entered In Record of Performance under the Dominion Live Stock Branch, while the
same holds true of the majority of entrants in Egg-laying Contests conducted by the Experimental Farms
Branch.
Since the word "trapnest" has become so common it would seem unnecessary to describe what is meant
further than to say that II is a means
whereby a hen is retained in the nest
until the attendant releases her. By
this method, so long as there Is an
Identification baud on the leg of the
hen, a record of all the eggs laid by
her can be kept on a chart. Nol
only Is it desirable to know whether
a hen in her pullet year has laid a
profitable number of eggs or not, but
also whether she has laid a sufficient
number of eggs in her pullet year to
warrant her retention in the flock as
a worthy breeder.—K. MacBean, Assistant to Superintendent, Experimental Farm. Agasslz, B.C.

COINCIDENCE
The inside story of how Universal's

of the highly imaginative twelve mile

Not unnaturally, the most famous
and longest-remembered newspaper
stories are hoaxes, frauds and Just
ordinary mistakes. The eighteen
fifties rang with the hoax report that
the animals in the zoo had broken
loose; an untranslated code word
made the good ship "Wobble" a byword ten years ago. Press agent
yarns have taken their place with the
rest, until it became a misdemeanor
in New York to give false information
to a newspaper.
But the latest and one of the most
Interesting hoaxes ever perpetrated
upon the public was the highly colored account of the Twelve-Mile Lim-
story was a publicity "plant." The
it Cabaret which Sanford Jarrell described In the New York Herald-
Tribune a few days ago.     So plans-

paint the unlawful and unrestrained
joys of life on the sea roadhouse, that
almost all the other New York papers
picked the story up as fact.
Just at this time, by an odd coincidence, Universal opened its moving
picture, "Wine," made from William
MacHarg's story in Hearst's International, a story dealing with the breaking of the Eighteenth Amendment on
land and sea. Those Xew Yorkers
who saw it at the Cameo Theatre in
Bridgeport, Conn., immediately jumped to tlio conclusion that the sea
roadhouse story was a piece of Universal publicity. The report spread
around the Hialto; Broadway buzzed
with scandal and laughter. But the
more the officials of thc company denied this soft impeachment, the more
the conviction grew that the whole
next day the papers carried long ar<-
icles of denial by R. H. Cochrane,
vice president of Universal, that it
had planted a vessel of seventeen
thousand tons, or of one ton, outside
the twelve mile limit as an advertlse-
ment of its picture, scenes of whim
very closely paralleled tbe jazzy conduct of the Tribune's floating cafe,
Under the pressure of these forces
and the several investigations conducted by the government, by several
news associations, and hy the Tribune
itself, the fact suddenly developed
that the whole yarn existed only in
the vivid imagination of Mr. Jarrell;
the Herald-Tribune confessed it had
been victimized; and the only people
to come out of the episode with any
credit were the movie people who had
seized upon the fortuitous coincidence
to nail themselves up tight to a big-
breaking feature story.

A full quart of pre-war bourdon.
A flapper with dimpled knees.thnt

An after-dinner speaker who isn't

A great, man who has not beeu written up in the Magazine.
A travelling man who doesn't possess a single Pullman towel,
A producer of musical comedies

An insurance salesman whom anybody was ever glad to see.

A Ford owner who doesn't think

/!ORE SCOTTISH BRIDES FOR CANADm
The number of Scottish brides who have sailed from Glasgow to Canada this year, has been rather
striking. Many of these young ladies are going to prospective husbands who have only been a short
time in Canada. Here is a striking group, on board the Canadian Pacific Liner "Marloch." Mr. Roderick
MacLeod, the Gaelic singer, is in the centre of the group. The brides, from left to right, nre: Miss Andrew,
iMotherwell)j Miss Graham, (Edinburgh);  Miss  Dunn and Miss Mair (Coatbridge).
More Power!
More Speed!
—than is really necessary
THE Chevrolet valve-in-head motor has a
surplus of power—much more than
is ordinarily needed. Chevrolet has speed—
under favorable circumstances it will move
the speedometer to thc top figure.
True,   Chevrolet's  maximum power  and  speed  is
seldom, if ever, used by the average owner, but it
gives confidence to the driver to know that in case   .
of emergency this reserve of power and speed is at
his disposal.
Moreover, Chevrolet is built to withstand the strain
of speed and hard usage. The sturdy chassis; the
new, selective type transmission; the improved,
semi-floating type rear axle, with spiral bevel ring
gear and pinion, are all designed to give more than
ordinary service.
Because Chevrolet is built to stand the strain, it
continues to give economical transportation, even
after years of service.

fective In Canada, is that relating to
lhe corner kick, says Tityrus In The
Athletic News.
Law XI now reads: "A goal may be*
scored from a corner kick or from a
•:te kick if awarded for any infring.-
nieut of Law IX, but not from any
■tlier kick.
This should do much toward lessoning the apparent carelessness of
:acks regarding the concession of a
corner kick. They will take more
"are to clear first and figure it out
iftefwards.
Of late years, corner •kicks hn\e
ecu largely unproductive. Now the
v'inger will take more care with his
HTort and the man who can curve
lit bull inward from lhe corner flag
..ill be a decided acquisition.
Must Nol Object
There are three decisons of the ln-
I 'ernntional Hoard that Immediately
concern    Iho   behavior   of   player;.
I Referees may think Hint Law Xlill
Is already sufficiently comprehensive,
but In n way the text has been extended. A player may ask a refene
about his decision, but the footballer
"Is not entitled by word or action to
show dissent from any such decision.
A referee is required to treat tho
breach of this Instruction as ungen-
tlemanly behavior."
lt Is well for players to note the
use of the words—"Is required."
I'his phrase leaves tbe controlling official no choice. He has to send a
rude pla,er to the dressing room,
where he can repent of his folly. I
take it that this applies to any decision where a player has not asked a
question.
The player who is pulled up by the
whistle tor offside had better avoid
gesticulations, dramatic gestures and
statuesque attitude—but let the referee note for the thousandth time
that a man out of play does not commit an offense until he does something which causes play to be affected.
Up to Referee
The referee has now to determine
whether a player has been seriously
or slightly injured. If seriously, the
game must be stopped and the player removed; If slightly, the game
must continue until the boll is out of
play. Sometimes It is easy to distinguish between the two cases and at
other times it is very difficult to decide. The "opinion of the referee"
may he Influenced by his own physical calibre, by callousness or sympathy, or by a mistaken notion thnt
the man "on the floor" is shamming.

I they are to be kept within speaking
distance of the rest.
I    To Bum up this means flrst efficient
■ supervision, painstaking    work,   and
on the part of the board and the par-
i ents loyal co-operation.     May I sincerely thank the teachers of Cumber-
{land for all the lessons I have learned from them during the past year,
and express my own conviction that
they are really striving to accomplish
those ideals I have tried to outline.

when the school, the home and the
church sharing the same Ideals, are
striving together In fullest harmony
to secure for each child the fullest 3X-
presslou of his individuality. In loyil-
ty to God's Laws.
At the conclusion of his address,
the president declared nil offices vacant and called for nominations for a
chairman and a secretary to take
charge of tlle meeting. Accordingly, the ftov. .Inmes Hood was elected
chairman with MIbs M. Mordy secretary. In the election of officers, Mr.

The meeting tendered to the retiring president the Rev. W. Leversedge
and the secretary, Dr. E. R. Hicks, a
sincere vole of thanks for the work
they had accomplished while in office. The school principal in the
course of au address on the school
home garden competition said tbat:
At an earlier meeting you were asked, and kindly agreed to furnish the
prizes for a school-home garden competition among the boys and girls of
the Public School.
This competition was organized although I regret that the response was
not so general as I hud hoped, nianv
of those who had line gardens last
year falling to enter the competition
tills year.
Tlle work done by those who havo
continued their efforts till now Is evidence of tiie Interest they had in the
garden, largely for Kb own sake. The
pleasure they have had in producing
(lie beautiful flowers and tine vegetables that they have produced Is
really the chief value of gardening.
The gardens of Margaret Young In
the Senior group nnd nf Annie Youn.
lu  the Junior group are surprising.
I The quality and quantity of the flowers and vegetables would be a matter
| or pride to ninny adult gardeners.
Annie Young has a bed of Parsley
better than any I have seen elsewhere
nt any time.     Jean MacNaughton has
! a fine display of ripe tomatoes.
i Owing to most of the boys dropping
their gardens during the vacation i
have grouped the gardens simply Sen-
, lor and Junior and awarded prizes as
' follows:
I Seniors—1. Margaret Young, $5.00;
2, Jean MacNaughton, $2.50; 3, No
award.
i Juniors—1, Annie Young, $6.00; 2,
Willie   MacNaughton,   $2.50;   3,   Tom
' Mossey, $1.00.
,    May I suggest that an officer of the
' association present these prizes at the
general dismissal  at the school on
| Friday of thia week at 2:66 p.m.
He hoped that he would be able to
stimulate a great interest in garden
work next year possibly under a different plan.
He thanked the association for its
consistent and continued interest in
the affairs In which the school children are concerned.
Before the meeting closed, Dr. McNaughton urged all present to make
an effort to obtain an Increased membership and to that end a social evening will be held in tbe Anglican Hall
on some date to be arranged as soon
as possible. The meeting then adjourned ot meet again et the call of
the president.
