Poor  Scores  at  Shoot  for Valuable
Trophy •
Very poor scores were recorded at
the traps of the Cumberland Rod and
Gun Club on Sunday last on the occasion of the contest for the valuable
Con Reifel cup. The conditions were
not of thc best and this probably had
something to do with the poor showing made by the shooters. Rob. Bennie with 17 birds out of 25 captured
the cup and also a silver spoon. There
wns a fairly good gallery of spectators present to witness the shoot, and
the proceedings followed with keen
interest. Other scores were: J". Bono,
15; D. Franeioli, 14; Jim Cameron,
14; L. Franeioli, 14.

34 years. She was a native of Kelty,
Fifeshire, Scotland, and came to this
city about seven years ago with her
half-sister, Mrs. David Bell. She was
well and favorably known by a large

Mrs. David Bell, includes Mr. and
Mrs. Clark and Mr. and Mrs. Peters,
of Cumberland, uncles and aunts of

Softball is making headway in
Cumberland. Sunday evening last
saw the Royals and Fanny Bay tangle
at the City Park in a friendly game
which proved to be an ex idling one.
The large number of spectators thoroughly enjoyed the game which was
' won by the Royals, coming out on the
long end of a 15-12 score.
Royals vs. Lang's
Wednesday evening the Royals entertained the Lang's teajn, of Courtenay, and as on Sunday night, the
game was a most exciting one. Even
more exciting than the previous game.
The scores were even until the last
frame when the Lang's team drew
ahead to win 10-9. There was even
a bigger crowd on hand than was the
case on Sunday and it is evident the
game is certainly catching on here.
Many ladies' teams have been organized and every evening sees the
City Park occupied by one or two
teams practising. Now that so many
are using the City Park it might be
possible to get the City fathers to
improve the field by turfing it. At
present time it is hardly fit to b'e used
and with the Recreation ground occupied by the baseballers and the cricketers having a lease on the "Y", it
would really be a good thing if the
City Park could be put into shape.
Monday evening saw the Cumberland Cardinals and the Union Bay,
both ladies' teams in action. When we
say action we mean it in every sense
of the word. The game was very evenly contested, right up to the last innings when the Cardinals ran in 10
runs to give them a victory by 24 to
14 runs. The game waH watched by
a large number and many motorists
passing by the park, stopped and
parked their cars, viewed a portion of
the game and went away thoroughly,
satisfied. The girls are improving fast
and can swat the old ball to some purpose. Vera Picketti got a good whack
at the ball, getting a homer, but, unfortunately for her team there was no
one on bases. Games with the Courtenay girls are being arranged when
it is expected some real thrdllers will
be staged. The game on Monday was
umpired by Charlie Tobacco with
Louis Bartholdi base umpire.
The Cumberland old-time soccer
stars, through their secretary, W.
Mossey have issued a challenge to the
soccer players of Nanaimo of forty
years of age and over, to a game of
Association football to be played at
Nanaimo on Saturday, Jue the 20th,
prior to the game with £he English
touring team. It is to be hoped the
challenge will be accepted as it would
make a real good opener for the afternoon's sport of June 20th.

Mr. Frank Idle, F.R.A.M., of London, England, will be in the city on
Saturday conducting the examinations of the Associated Board of the
above institution. He will examine
Miss Mitchell's pupils at her residence
and will examine Mrs. Finch's pupils
and the pupils of Mrs. Hudson at the
home of Mrs. Finch. He will leave
immediately after the examinations
for Vancouver, where he will conduct
examinations until the end of June.
Giving Ride To
Children Cost
Driver $10.00
Offence.   Under  Motor  Vehicles  Act
Thomas Moncrieff, of Cumberland,
who works for the Bayview Dairy as
delivery man, was lined $10.00 and
costs and his white licence exchanged
for a blue one, the outcome of giving
children rides. He was said to be carrying children on the hood of his car
when he was seen by the constable
and charged with driving to the common danger.
Jas. Sheasgreen, of Headquarters,
also had his white driver's licence exchanged for a blue one, the outcome
of a collision with a car driven by S.
J. Long on the Headquarters road.
He was fined {20.00 and costs in addition to getting a blue card.
A resident of Merville who was
charged with having deer meat in his
possession during the closed season
was fined $10.00 and costs. The deer
meat was found in accused's barn by
Constable Donahoe.
Mr. Roy Brown, of the staff of the
Vancouver Daily Province flew to
Buttles Lake for a day's fishing. Passing over Little River Mr. Brown gave
some of the inhabitants a friendly
wave. The reason for the wave is explained by the fact that Mr. Brown
has relatives there.
At a meeting on Wednesday night
the Cumberland Euglcs football team
decided to accept the invitation of
Powell River to stage an exhibition
game in that city on Dominion Day.
Cumberland's Deputy Fire
Chief Hands Out Some
Good Advice at Convention

by extra special permision of His
Majesty, Canadian Movietone News
is able to bring to you these first pictures in sound ever made within the
Madrid Palace. The Palm Sunday
procession of the entire Spanish court
offers a spectacle rarely witnessed,
except by the elect. Winston Churchill talks on India—Britain's brilliant
tory calls for a strong and positive

Troops of Poland drill on skiis—the
Winter lingers at Zakopane in the

urmy is holding maneuvers,
Some home truths relating to the
organization of volunteer fire brigades were given in a paper read by
Mr. J. H. Cameron, deputy fire chief
of Cumberland, before the first annual convention of B.C. Fire Chiefs
at Vancouver. In thc first part of his
address, Mr. Cameron gave some very
wise advice as to the organization of
a fire department; later on he spoke
of the equipment needed.
"It is sad but true that small cities
never see the need of a fire department until they have experiencd a
conflagration that either wholly or
partially cleans them out. It is a
known fact that cities in British Columbia have had to lose half their
business sections to get to the point
of organizing a fire department, and
then have had to lose the bigger part
of the other half to realize that the
fire department was not much good
without a water system. Now they
have both and I am just wondering
how much more loss they will have to
sustain to arrive at a point where
they will have their department fully
and adequately equipped.
How to Choose Men
"And here I should like to give the
chief some good advice on his final
choice of men; choose men who aro
in good physical condition between
the ages of twenty-one and thirty-five
and choose as many as possible who
live or work near the Are station.
Above all, keep away from the man
who is here today and gone tomorrow.
Our department has had some very
bad experiences with this type of
fellow. Due consideration should be
given to the choice of at least four
men who are good car drivers. Not
the harum-scarum fellow who can
turn a corner on two wheels better
than anyone else in town, but good,
steady drivers, preferably those who
are used to handling heavy vehicles.
These men will eventually become a
very valuable asset to the department.
"After making his choice of men
the chief should pay a friendly visit
to the city council or the fire wardens
and submit his choice of names, and
ask their opinion on his selection.
This little act of courtesy will more
than repay him in the future.
"The department should also decide at this period what form of recreation they will take up. Dances and
card parties are good revenue makers
whilst picnics and sports have a tendency to bring thc public and the de-

Japanese Take
Athletics 13-12
After obtaining a nine run lead over
the Royston Japanese, the best a crippled Cumberland ball team could do
last Sunday at Lewis Park was to lose
the decision by one run to the fighting
little brown men from the mill. The
teams garnered 25 runs, Royston winning 13-12.
The game, ragged in spots, tightened up towards the finish. Errors were
numerous, and the slabsmen got Indifferent support from their teammates.

Tournament At
Lawn Bowling
Club Started
Special Content  for Singles
W. Henderson, Sr., had the honor
of winning the first game this year
in the first singles contest to be started at the lawn bowling green, defeating Jack Williams by a score of 21
points to 11. The second game was
between Harry Jackson and W. McMillan, the former having all his work
cut out to defeat his opponent. After
a very close game Harry won 21-20.
Other games are expected to be played tonight and tomorrow when the
draw for the second round will be
made. That the competition is proving popular, is proven by the fact that
almost every member of the club entered. Arrangements will be made
shortly for the games betwen Nanaimo and Cumberland for thc Villiers
cup, which is for rinks. A doubles
contest will also be started as soon as
arrangements can be completed. The
green is improving fast and promises
to be very popular place during the
summer months.
May Queen At
Oyster River
The Oyster River residents celebrated their first May Day and crowned
tehir flrst May Queen this year. The
celebration was held last Friday and
it is hoped it will become an annual
affair. The flrst May Queen chosen
from the Oyster River school, Miss
Gladys Wood, was crowned by the
teacher, Miss Gladys Idiens, in the
presence of a large crowd of parents
and friends. Her maids of honor were
Miss Annie Storie and Betty Brown.
Following the ceremony, sports were
held and tea was served.
Excitement ran high at the Recreation Ground Thursday night on the
occasion of the meeting of the Cumberland Eagles and the Happy Valley
nine in a regular twilight, league fixture. The brand of ball displayed was
snappy and at the commencement of
the last innings the scores were tied
with four each. Bill Stant busted up
thc game when he got a safe hit
bringing in two runs to give his team
the victory. It was a game worth going a long way to see and if the same
brand of ball is displayed in the future games in the league bigger and
better gates will be the order of the
day. Anyway Thursday's game satisfied everybody, especially the Eagles,
whose supporters were jubilant over
the 6-4 victory.
Local Japanese
Fined $300 For
Selling Whiskey
Had Bootleg Whiskey Hanging Round
His Neck
It might be a funny place to hide
whiskey and one where a chap would
feel fairly safe in keeping it. However, it did not do a Cumberland
Japanese any good at all as Constable
De Witt, acting on information visited M. Oda at four o'clock on Saturday morning last and subjected him
to a search. He found suspended
round his neck by a string two bottles of home-made saktj He was
brought before a magistrate, unable
to give a satisfactory explanation was
fined $300 and costs.
Work on the completion of the
Menzies Bay road was begun last
Monday/by a crew of about twenty
men under the direction of the Provincial Public Works Department.
Besides making the beach camps of
three large logging companies accessible, the new road gives to motorists
that which they desire — scenic
charms unsurpassable anywhere on
the coast, including an enchanting
view of the far-famed Seymour Narrows and Discovery Passage.
Mrs. George Spencer, of the Waverley Hotel, entertained at a surprise
party on Thursday in honor of her
sister, Mrs. W. Robinson, of Vancouver, who on that day, celebrated her
birthday. A delightful evening was
spent in cards, music, etc., with a big
feature of the evening's enjoyment
heeing tea cup reading. During the
evening, Mrs. Robinson was the recipient of a beautiful gift, as was
also Mrs. Etherington, an honored
guest. Those present included, Mrs.
G. Spencer, Mrs. W. Robinson, Mrs.
T. Baird, Mrs. R. McCluskey, Mrs. T.
Hobbs, Mrs. W. Warren, Mrs. J.
Monks and Mrs. R. Etherington.
Plea Of Mines
Is Supported
Premier Tolmie Wires Premier R. B.
Renewing efforts, made while he
was at Ottawa, to secure recognition
for the request of Vancouver Island
mines that $1 a ton bonus be given
by the Dominion Government to apply to all coal bunkered and exported
from British Columbia to points
other than the United States, Premier
Tolmie Tuesday sent the following
wire to Rt. Hon. R. B. Bennett:
"After careful consideration, this
Government strongly supports the request of the British Columbia operators for some adjustment of coal
policy ,as set forth in your budget
speech. Letter setting forth arguments sent by Hon. W, A. McKenzie
to you June 5. Request first that bonus on bunker coal and export coal,
other than to United States, be raised
from 25 cents to $1.00 a ton. Realize
that it is now impossible to change
your decision to increase duty on
bituminous coal, but hope that some
plan can be worked out whereby Dominion Government will absorb retaliation duty placed on British Columbia coal to the States in order to protect our export market for 200,000
tons of coal. Situation so desperate in
coal mining that every effort must be
made to protect all possible markets.
From announced coal policy it would
seem that new taxation will not Dominion Government at least $2,000,-
00P over all bonuses and subventions
paid, so some assistance to British
Columbia coal industry fully justified."
Mr. Basil Horsefall, of Vancouver,
manager of the Canadian Educational Films was a business visitor to
Cumberland on Thursday.
Lieut-Col. Charles W. Villie"s,
general manager of the Canadian Collieries (Dunsmuir), Limited and the
Western Fuel Corporation of Canada
Limited left for Vancouver on Wednesday morning on a business trip. He
is expected back in Cumberland tonight.
The heat of the last week-end took
many to the beaches. Amongst those
Cumberlanders noticed at Little River were Mr. and Mrs. James Dick and
family and Mr. and Mrs. T. R. S.
Graham. At Royston Beach many
more were in evidence and the summer cottages at the popular seaside
resort are beginning to be put into
shape ready for the closing of the
schools at the end of the month,
when a large number of the local residents will be in residence there.
Mr. C. F, Earle, of Victoria, district
passenger agent of the Canadian National Railways was a visitor to Cumberland on Thursday.
Comox-Alberni Member Warns
Commons Of Danger Involved
In Canada's Many Jobless
The last issue of the Courtenay
Free Press shows a decided improvement over previous issues. The make

Ottawa, June 0.—The House of
Commons Monday afternoon passed
an interim supply bill for $22,107,645
This represents one-twelfth of the
main estimates, and one-fourth of the
amount to be devoted under civil government for the department of the
It took most of the afternoon for
the House to get into committee of
supply, but once this was attained,
the bill itself passed through quickly.
The House had two divisions.
Trans-Canada Road
J. A. Bradette, Liberal member for
Temiskaming asked Premier Bennett
to confirm or deny a statement attributed to Hon. William Finlayson,
Ontario, minister of lands and forests
that the Dominion and provincial governments had reached an agreement
to send out three survey parties to
study the best route for the trans-
Canada highway. Deputy Speaker La-
vergne ruled the question out of order, and Mr. Bradette moved the adjournment of the House to discuss the
question. His motion was defeated by
04 to 37.
Later the question was discussed
on the motion of Mr. Bennett to go
.into committee of supply. Another
division was called when the deputy
speaker's ruling was again appealed
from. This time it was pressed by
A. W. Neill, of Comox-Alberni. He
wanted to discuss unemployment. The
chair ruled that since unemployment
was already before the house in the
Liberal amendment to the budget,
such a discussion was out of order on
a supply motion. The House supported the ruling 04 to 44.
New Jobless Data
When Mr. Neil attempted to introduce the subject, Deputy Speaker La-
vergne quoted parliamentary rules in
support of his ruling that the discussion washout of order. Mr. Neill said
he had new data since the amendment
was*moved. He did not want to "play
"Oh, no," shouted several members
"I bow to the ruling of the House,
such as it is," declared Mr. Neill when
he resumed speaking after the vote
was registered. This statement, submitted the prime minister, was "a reflection upon the honor of the House."
"Am I to say, 'such as it isn't?'"
queried Mr. Neill .
"He is making a joke of parliament
shouted a government supporter.
In certain  parts of Canada, proceeded   Mr.   Neill,  a  sentiment  was

Cowichan Lose
By Six Wickets
Bowler.  Keep  Score  Down  to  Low
Level; Game Went to Two
The Cowichan cricketers had to
bow down to defeat at the hands of
the local eleven on Sunday last, the
homesters winning by six wickets
after a two innings game, featured by
very low scores. The visitors batted
first, the opening pair facing the
bowling of McLaughlin and Vernon-
Jones. Both bowlers got a wicket in
their first overs and bowling a good
length kept the visitors score down,
the whole side being dismissed for
31 runs. McLaughlin and Vernon-
Jones both had real good averages,
the former getting five wickets for
H runs in the first innings and the
latter four for 17. Ball, the Saskatchewan representative who now resides at Duncan was top scorer for
the visitors getting 19 before being
bowled by Vernon-Jones. Cumberland going to bat did not make much
of a better showing than the visitors,
Joe Idiens being top scorer with 10
runs, being unfortunate to be run
out. The whole side was dismissed for
44 runs, 13 more than the visitors' total. Roy Grier, playing for Cowichan
took 4 of the Cumberland wickets for
8 runs. Going to bat a second time,
the visitors did not fare any better,
the side being dismissed for 24 runs,
McaLughlin and Vernon-Jones again
doing great damage with the ball. In
this innings the latter had the wonderful average of five wickets for 9
runs, McLaughlin getting four for 16.
The home team only required to make
12 runs to make victory sure on the
two innings. These were obtained
with the fall of four wickets.

With one or two exceptions the local census enumerator! have been exceptionally well received nnd report
steady progress in the work. One or
two set backs have been encountered,
but in the majority of cases, thc people visited received the enumerators
very graciously and appeared anxious
to do all possible to assist. On the
other hand the one or two who caused the enumerators a little trouble,
did ao probably on account of the
officials calling at an inopportune

When Summer's here
And school is through,
A place to go.
And Something to do.
CAMPING; an opportunity for a boy to release
some of his inherent instincts without going
to jail. No traffic laws, no policemen, no nervous old ladies, no white collars, no creased trousers
or "boiled" shirts.
A mother is heard to say. "No camping for my
boy if that is what it is. I did not raise my boy to
be* a roughneck." Just a minute, mother. You have
the wrong viewpoint. .Most of the organized camps
are far healthier and safer than city life with its
many questionable appeals for the boy's leisure
The Boy Scout Camp in particular is -a real democracy where boys, rich and poor alike may enjoy the leadership of trained men of high moral
character, investigate the mysteries of nature,
participate in water activities with safety, learn
crafts of many kinds, enjoy fun and recreation,
and benefit greatly in health and physique.
The scout camp is truly a training camp with
development of character and citizenship training
as objectives rather than financial dividends.
During the past year 400,000 boy scouts participated in the camping program with astounding
results in the welfare and advancement of American boyhood as attested by scout parents throughout the nation.
The boys themselves are enthusiastic boosters
because it is in the scout camp that they are given
the opportunity to satisfy their normal urges for
adventure, comradeship, out-of-door life, fun and
Scout camping began only a little more than
two decades ago. It was founded on a sincere purpose to benefit boys. Now there are hundreds of
large camps and many smaller ones. These camps,
developing year by year, have proven their claims
for health and safety. Those in positions of responsibility use every possible precaution to safeguard the boys under their care. This is particularly true of the program of swimming and water
activities, wherein the Boy Scout Movement, in
co-operation with the Red Cross, has led in the
development of safety measures. There is nothing
left to do but take our hats off to an organization
which can promote camping in such a volume with
WILLIAM Penn (England—America) (1644-
1718)—a strange combination of a Quaker
and a man of high social standing. The son
of an English admiral and the intimate friend of
the King's brother, he yet belonged to the most
despised religious sect in England. Owing to the
fact that the King had borrowed most of his father's money and had forgotten to pay it back, Penn
was able to obtain a grant of land in America.
That was before the days of oil and skyscrapers,
when land was just so much dirt.
It was a small plot—just the present State of
Pennsylvania, now named after its original owner,
of course. Later he received the State of Delaware
as a postscript. Penn's own surveyor laid out th?
lirst city on a nice beautiful site. Being Quakers
they called it Philadelphia, City of Brotherly Love.
They didn't know that it would take a Marine otli-
cer to clean the place up irua century or so.    •
Strange to relate, Penn seemed to think he
ought to pay the Indians for their land (which he
did without waiting for dun) and he persistently
kept his word with them. This so amazed the poor,
untutored savages that they left the colony in
peace, probably fearing there was something
wrong with Penn's Mind.
Diogenes died too soon to find him.
REPRESENTING another triumph lor Canada's great
transportation corporation, the Canadian Pacific
Rnilway, the Empress of Britain, described as perhaps the finest liner afloat and the largest and swiftest
that has ever sailed thc St. Lawrence, has arrived at
Quebec, This triumph is one in which Canada shares, as
she has so frequently shared in events which have given
the C. P. R. a world-wide reputation for vigorous enterprise, efficient service, sound management and the highest standards of integrity in all dealings with the public.
At a time when conditions of depression are almost
universal, when our economic systems are being put to
the se\erest tests, and when public confidence in the
future is distrusted, the maiden voyage of this splendid
liner is a siganl to the world of the faith of those responsible for the affairs of the Canadian Pacific in the future
of the great enterprise which they control any of the
stability of the country on whose prosperity the success
of their policies is dependent.
Those who study the history of the Canadian Pacific
and realize how events have justified the vision and enterprise of the founders and those who have succeeded
them, will have no doubt that the judgment which led to
the building of the Empress of Britain will be justified as
the judgment in relation to many other great ventures
has been justified. —Financial Times.

Questions concerning health, addressed to the Canadian Medical Association! 184 College St.,
Toronto, will be answered per-
There are conditions during thc hot
weather, which are apt to cause upsets and disease among the babies.
For this reason, it is necessary that
special attention be given to certain
points in order to keep the baby healthy and comfortable, and to protect
h!m from diseases during the summer months.
When the weather is hot, a bath
morning and night, is desirable. In
addition, the very hot day .is made
more comfortable for the baby if he
is givn a cool sponge in thc middle of
thc day.
Many babies have a very uncomfortable time during thc warm
weather because they arc over-clothed. Not only arc they made uncomfortable, but their sleep is disturbed,

they perspire and then they become
chilled. The baby should be dressed
according to the temperature, not to
the time of the year. A diaper alone,
or a diaper and a thin, sleeveless
shirt, are sufficient clothing on a
really hot summer day.
During the summer, the baby becomes thirsty more often, and so
wants more water. Unsweetened boiled water should be offered to him at
least once between each feeding.
Thirst is very distressing, and as the
baby cannot ask for a drink, he depends upon you to offer it to him.
Just because he refuses it once, do
not forget that he may become thirsty later on.
Hundreds of babies die every summer from what is popularly known
as "summer complaint"—summer diarrhoea. The best way to prevent this
loss of life is to prevent the diarrhoea.
Breast-fed babies very seldom contract this disease, and breast-feeding
is, therefore, the first and most important point in prevention. Raw milk
should not be given to children. Pasteurized milk should be bought, or
the milk should be pasteurized in the
home. Failing either of these, the
milk should be boiled. Young children cannot resist the effects of milk
containing large numbers of germs
from barnyard contamination.
If diarrhoea does occur, parents
should never forget that it is a very
serious and often fatal condition unless properly treated. There are those
who think they know how to treat this
condition although they have had no
training, and the results of what they
do are seen in the number of babies
they bury.
If the child has diarrhoea, all feedings should be stopped. Let the child
have as much unsweetened . ..ter as
he w.ili take, and give no medicine.
Place the child under your doctor's
To some, this may seem unneces-
rasy fuss about what is a fairly common sense disease. To their objections
we would answer that the hundreds
of babies who die of summer diarro-
hea do so because the necessary attention was not given them. Deaths
from this cause can be prevented by

partment together and establish a
friendy spirit that is sometimes lacking toward volunteer departments. I
would also strongly advise having the
department take up first aid work as
it :s both useful and interesting.
Equipment Required
"It would be rather difficult to
make a statement regarding equipment for a voluntary department.
The financial condition of the city
would, of course, be a big factor, und
what would suit one town would not
suit another. Some can get by with
just hose wagon, that is, where there
is city pressure; others will have to
have a pumper, while the more unfortunate will have to get by with a
chemical, but I would suggest that
whatever the department decides to
get, that it be new if possible, and
that .It be a regular piece of equipment.
"I am very much opposed to the
conversion of a passenger car chassis
into a fire-fighting unit. I have had
a lot of experience with this class of
equipment, and I have found it very
costly to operate. As a matter of fact,
most of the conversions are badly
worn before the department gets
them. Then again the margin of safety is not there. The running gear,
wheels, steering gear, etc., are loaded
many times over capacity, and disaster may occur at any moment on the
road. If it is impossible to stay away
from conversions I would strongly advise getting a truck chassis.
A Big and Painful Subject
The financing of a volunteer department is a big and painful subject,
and it would be much better if the
newly formed department could work
with their city and have the expenses
taken from the city revenue, and I
believe that this is being done in most
small towns now.
. "In my town of Cumberland, the
chief puts in his estimates every year,
and it is put before the council and
voted on the same as any other estimate. The city should also be induced
to keep every member of their department insured against accident
while on duty. After all it is not asking much of a community to keep up
the fire equipment and insure the men
who are giving their time free of
charge. One way we help our boys
out in Cumberland is by not charging
them any taxes.
"The matter of a fire station is
sometimes quite a problem in a small
town. The cost is too great to get a
regular building and the equipment
is housed in barns, garages, and what
not, and the village church bell is the
alarm signal.
"The new department should make
an endeavor to get a regular building for their station and to have a
place for some of the men to sleep.
This arrangement speeds things up a
lot, especially at night. In these modern days of electricity a good siren
should be procured. My experience
is that a siren gets results.
Fir. Department in Cumberland
"Now, Mr. President, before closing I would like to tell you just a few
things about the Cumberland Fire
Department. The department has
been in active service for about forty
years, and we have now a membership of twenty-six men. We have a
fine station with living quarters upstairs; one large chemical truck and
one hose wagon that will handle 1600
feet of 2 U-inch hose, 800 feet of
P/2-inch hose, twelve men and the
rest of the paraphernalia that goes
to make up a fire fighting unit. This
truck was built right here in Vancouver."

Suicide Percentage
Highest On West Coast
California and British Columbia Are
Highest in U.S. and Canada
Quebect I. Lowest
People commit suicide for a variety
of reasons, but it is a safe assumption
that most who do are mentally deranged, at least temporarily.
According to the Dominion Bureau
of Statistics, 748 persons took their
own lives in Canada during 1928, the
last year for which figures are available; and it is estimated that there
arc annually 15,000 suicides in the
United StBtes. The suicide rate per
100,000 population in Canada is 7.8;
and for the United States, 12.1.
Strangely enough, both in Canada
and the United States, the farther
west one goes the .greater chance
there is of one's committing suicide.
San Diego, California, has a rate of
80.6, and Los Angeles, 35.7, a,s
against an average for all American
cities of 18.2. This may be because so
many invalids go to California in
search of health; they have nothing
but death to look forward to when
this hope fails. British Columbia,
which is not so well advertised from
a health standpoint 4s California, has
a rate of 17.02—the highest in Canada; and Alberta is next with 13.9.
The lowest rate in Canada, is in Quebec. Despite the fact that Nova Sco-
tion, with a rate of 3.8, is next, the
Quebec rate may be attributed largely to the influence of religion, since
in other Roman Catholic countries
the percentage of suicides is also low
Thc Jewish religion, however, does
not seem to act as a deterrent: in
Prussia, for instance, the rate for
Jews is 8.3 while for Protestants it
is 5, and for Catholics, only 2.1.
Men are more prone to suicide than
women, in the ratio of about three to
one; and single persons seem more
susceptible than the married. Men
show a preference for firearms and
women for poison. Negroes apparently think twice when suicide is contemplated: in the state of Georgia
the rate for whites is 9.6 while the
colored population it is only 1.6 and
this ratio holds for other states.
It may seem strange to some that
the Irish Free State has the lowest
rate of any white country, and that
the next is Mexico; but here again religion probably plays its parts, for
the ratio in the Irish Free State is
about 3, while for Northern Ireland
it is just double that.
There does not seem to be any evidence to support the'eommon belief
thnt suicide among students and other
young people is becoming more prevalent. People suicide at all ages, but
the average in the State of New York
which may be taken as also a fair
estimate for Canada, is 46.1 years for
men and 40.6 for women.
Nothing much can be done nt present to reduce this serious human
wastage. Like other evidences of
mental disorder, the situation which
leads to suicide is usually of fairly
long standing, and is the outcome of
one's way of living. When every individual is taught to face the facts of
life and to meet issues squarely as
they arise, the number of those who
choose the suicide way out or who
slip into some form of mental disease will undoubtedly be reduced, but
htere does not seem to be any other
remedy. *

Deputy Speaker Lavergne called
Mi*. Neill to order. The rules of the
House were being transgressed in
reading the letter.
Then, said Mr. Neill, he would express himself in this way: "There was
a growing sentiment in Canada which
typified in such expression as 'Something is going to snap', 'A big change
is coming.' 'The Rus^ans are not such
fools as we thought.' "
"Expressions of this sort, Mr. Neill
said, were common among the educated business and commercial classes
of Canada and he again warned the
government that steps must be taken
before conditions become worse.
The House then moved into committee and passed the resolutions embodying the prime minister's interim
supply bill.
Branches of the interior department covered in the bill include topographical surveys, geodetic survey
and Dominion lands and parks. One
fourth of the amount provided for
unemployment relief in the main
estimates is nlso covered in the total.
Premier R. B. Bennett explained
that the reason one-fourth was asked
for in respect to the interior department was "that large numbers of the
staff of that department are still on
full pay under their retirement rights
and it is therefore necessary to provide for one quarter of the amount
mentioned in the estimates or there
would not he sufficient to meet these
demands until the end of this month."
The amount would enable employees
of this department to be paid foi* another month, he said.
The bill also covers one-twelfth of
the amount provided for Canadian
National steamships and maritime
freight rates as set forth in the main
