Justice JT. A. Mnolioiuild (lives ('rent
Oration on Confederation    *
The Courtenay Stadium was crowded to capacity on Friday morning
with people eager to hear the speaker
of the day, Justice Mi A. Macdonald,
and they were by no means disappointed. Justice Macilonalil, who is
noted for his oratorical ability, delivered a most stirring address on
Confederation. Mayor J. W. McKenzie acted as chairman anil on the
platform wero also Mr. P. P. Harrison, M.L.A., Mr. Joseph McPhee, .Mr.
Alex. Urquhart, Mr. Wm. Beach. Mr.
A. T. Beckensell and Chief Joe Nlm-
Nlm, all old-timers of the district.
Dominion Queen Crowned
The first event of the proceedings
was the crowning of the dominion
Queen (Miss Bowen) by Queen Muriel
Leighton. The Mayor, nfler extending
a welcome to all present, called on
Mr. Harrison who extended to Mr.
Justice Macdonald the thanks of the
community in attending to help make
the celebration a success ami to the
Native Sons and those who assisted
ln organizing the celebrntion anil expressed the hope that all would enjoy themselves and always bear this
celebration in mind.
Mr. Justice Macdonald was then
Introduced and enthusiastically greeted. In introducing his speech, he
said that the day was Canada's Diamond Jubilee. The day had been
ushered in with an event of nationwide importance—peals of music
from a carillon of bells In Victory
Tower on the Parliament Buildings
at Ottawa, whicli had been broadcasted from ocean to ocean. He cited the difficulties of tlie journey taken by tlle late Principal Grant and
his associates across the continent
55 years ago, tlle journey taking 100
days, whereas the message of the
bells was carried to the Pacifie In an
infinitesimal part of a day. The
speaker then told of the difficulties
that confronted those statesmen who,
while having no modern experience
to guide them, founded the Dominion,
the creation of which, he said "must
always be considered a wonderful
achievement, splendid In its conception, and in the intricate details contained In the 72 resolutions of the
Quebec conference upon which ll was
based." Tlle Constitution then framed, he said, had been copied in Australia, New Zealand, Sou Hi Africa,
and' the recently formed Irish Free
■State, so that they not only gave
a Constitution to Canada but to every Dominion of the great Empire
of which we formed a part.
Partisan Strife Forgotten
He cited tho fact that while Hon.
George Brown and Hon. John A.
Macdonald were not on speaking
terms for years, Confederal ion could
not perhaps have been consummated
without their co-operation—"an ox-
ample of great minds rising above a

Courtenay Had
Great Parade
The greatest parade In the history
of Courtenay, a parade worthy of a
very much larger city, ushered ln
the celebrations of the Diamond Jubilee organized and conducted by
Courtenay Assembly No. 3, Native
Sons of Canada, ably assisted by the
several other organizations of the
Under the direction of Mr. G. W.
Stubbs and Major A. M, Hilton, tlle
parade formed along Warren Avenue
and contiguous streets shortly after
ten o'clock on Friday morning, anil,
headed by Piper Stewart and Major
Leedam carrying the Union Jack,
proceeded down Union Street to the
Auto Park. Immediately following
the flag were several ladies representing the Red Cross and the 1. 0.
D. E. Then came the Courtenay Band
followed by a strong contingent of
the Canadian Legion, 11. E. S. I.,
under command of Sergt. .Major F. R.
Marshall, D.C.M. and a very simple
but exquisite float representing a
white marble memorial ol* a broken
column adorned Willi red poppies in
which were outlined tlie words "Lest
"We Forget." Then came the llont of
the Native Sons, bearing Queen Muriel and her suite alld (he Dominion
Queen-elect, Miss Bowen.
The Cumberland and Courtenny
Fire Departments wcre next in line
with their trucks gaily decorated itl
bunting, flags and ribbons, after
which came floats, decorated cn,rs,
groups of children, decorated bicycles, advertising displays .etc., ote.
As the parade consisted of some fifteen floats, dozens of decorated cars
and bicycles, space does not permit
the describing of each Individual entry, suffice It to say that In most Instances a great deal ot pains had been
taken in the decorating.
A  Wonderful Flout
The flrst prize for floats was do-
servlngly awarded lo the Japanese
Community of the district with a
faithful representation of n merchant
marine under the name of "Canada."
This represented a single funnel ship,

Draw Results In
Meeting Of Cliffe
And   Belanger
In a ten round battle replete with
thrills that would have done justice
to a world title event, Roy Cliffe,
Courtenay, and Charlie Belanger
travelled at top speed to a draw
verdict in the Stadium ring, Courtenay, on Saturday night. For halt
an hour the pair gave of their best
and although Cliffe looked to have
won by a fair margin, Gil Martin,
premier referee on the Pacilic Coast,
after a brief fifteen seconds period,
held aloft the right hand glove of
each man, with the words, "I declare
the contest a draw." In a statement to the Islander after the bout,
Martin said he could have given the
decision to Cliffe and gotten away
with it, but he credited Belanger
with having had Cliffe in a groggy
state three times during the scrap
and that he could not overlook this
advantage, which he had evened up
on his score card by awarding the
major points to Cliffe for his superior boxing ability.
It is no secret that the wiseacres
were looking for a quick win by Belanger not only because the Wlnnlpeg-
ger had whipped the greatly touted
Jack Roper only a few nights before
in Portland, but owing to the fact
ihat Cliffe had been Bent to dreamland by Lenhart, the Elk City, Wash.,
light-heavy, ln his previous battle.
By his showing with Belanger, Cliffe
not only upset the form chart but
regained his temporarily lost admirers by his brilliant display as well
as by his changed style of boxing.
Content hitherto to ■ start proceedings at a slow gait, Cliffe fairly
bounced from his seat and tore into
Belan***er almost before the gong
sound had died away on the night
air. He showed a left hook that was
quick as a flash; he brought into
action a straight left that was Invariably dangerous and a right cross
that while yet lacking finish, will be
a damaging addition to the rest of
Ills firing artillery in future bonis.
That Cliffe is yet to make his maru
in the heavyweight brigade is now
taken for granted, following his most
brilliant form of Saturday and although he so hurt his right hand that
he will be out of commission for perhaps two months, he Is destined for
bigger and better things In the Held
of sport he has taken up as his life
work. He is a workman with the
right tools to carry him through and
with  Nature  giving  him a  massive

G.R.. Cumberland.—In answer to
your query, the flies ot the Islander
show that Roy Cliffe fought Ole Anderson on July 1st, 1926, at the Courtenay Stadium,-Cliffe being awarded
the decision after eight rounds of
boxing. —J.V.J.
To Matt Brown, caretaker of the
Cumberland Post Office, goes the
honor of having the best decorated
public building in the district. The
Dominion Government granted Mr.
Brown sixty dollars for this purpose
which was not quite enough considering Courtenay with a building of
practically the same size was granted eighty dollars. Nevertheless, the
appearance of Cumberland's Post Ofllce far surpassed that of Courtenay.
Tlle building was especially attractive at night when lt was illuminated
by strings of lights along the top
and sides.
The top and sides were draped
with red. white nnd blue cheesecloth, with similar drapes running
from the top to the flag pole. In the
centre of the facade was a large diamond which was the cause of much
debate owing to the different opinions on the correct shape of a diamond. Beneath the diamond waB a
picture of the Fathers of Confederation. The two entrances (rom the
side of the building were curtained
with the British national colors with
flags along the top. On the whole,
the building presented a very pleasing appearance and the Islander congratulates Mr. Brown and his assistant, Mr. Charles McDonald, on their
splendid work.
Cumberlander Found
Unconscious On Street
Of Capital: Succurpbs
Sylvio Marocchi, who was found
lying unconscious on the corner of
Blanshard and Fort streets on Tuesday morning ,In spite of all that
medical skill could do, died on Thursday evening In the Jubilee Hospital.
At flrst the police of the capital city
were at a loss as to how Mr. Mar.
occhl became Injured. On enquiries
the Islander has been Informed that
Mr. Marocchi, along with his wife
and two children and Some other
relatives, left Cumberland on Monday
morning last for a two weeks' holt-
day, which they Intended spending
in California. The party registered
at the Dominion Hotel, and early on
Tuesday morning, Mr. Marocchi
arose, evidently with the Intention of
taking a walk round the city before
proceeding on his journey. As far as
can be ascertained, his relatives did
not know of his intention to take a
morning walk and were at a loss to
know just what had happened to him.
About noon enquiries were made,
when it was found he was a patient
at the Jubilee Hospital, having been
taken there by the police as soon as
he was found to have been badly Injured. The manner ln which the deceased gentleman was hurt is not
quite clear; although lt appears he
had a bad fall. There was no suggestion of foul play and Dr. Millar,
the attending physician, was of the
opinion that deceased had hurt himself In the fall.
Sylvio Marocchi. as a member of
the firm of Marocchi Bros., was well
and favorably known throughout the
whole of the district, having resided
ln Cumberland for a number of years,
and the sympathy of the entire community goes out to the widow and
family ln the untimely death of a
popular man.
A very pretty wedding was solemnized on Tuesday evening at 7:15
at St. Andrew's Church of England,
Sandwick, when the Rev. A. W. Corker united in marriage Sylvia, youngest daughter of Mrs. A. Geidt and the
late Mr. A. Geldt, Hartland Farm,
Courtenay, and Dr. George Sandford
MacDonald, of Anyox, son of Mr. and
Mrs. J. S. MacDonald, Halifax, Nova
Scotia. The church was prettily

Voice Of Literature
Needed In Canada
Says Noted Speaker
Cumberland opened its Diamond
Jubilee qf Contederatlon celebration
at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday by the
hoisting of the flag on the Publlc
School and addresses of Mr. Archie
Dick and Mr. Justice M. A. Macdonald, of Victoria. There was a fair
sized gathering of school children
and citizens on hand.
Mayor Maxwell opened the ceremonies with a short address which
was followed by the singing of "O
Canada." Mr. Archie Dick then delivered the address which won for
him the championship of the Comox
District in the recent Sun Oratorical
Contest. In his brief and forceful
address Archie outlined the progress
Canada has enjoyed since Confederation, giving for example the rapid
strides made in Canada's railroad
systems which resulted ln the populating and cultivating of prairie
provinces which in turn makes Canada one of the greatest grain' producing and exporting countries of the
world to-day.
Next on the morning's programme
was the singing of "The Maple Leaf
Forever,' after which Mayor Maxwell
Introduced the chief speaker, Mr.
Justice M. A. Macdonald, of Victoria.
The theme of Mr. Macdonald's address was the development of the
Spirit of Patriotism. He went on
to say that Canada does not Want
patriotic easterners, patriotic westerners, patriotic prairie-men, but
patriotic Canadians. Mr. Macdonald
is a strong supporter of the theory
that in union alone there ls strength.
Mr. Justice Macdonald said that
Canada needed a new voice, the voice
of literature ,and he felt that ln the
field of poetry at least, Canada could
lay claim to a national literature different to that of any other nation.
Canadian poetry would not be like
that of Britain but would be confined
to the interpretation of nature. Literature would give Canadians an impulse to do noble deeds and strengthen the national spirit.
The speaker went on to say that
Canada was one of the most favored
countries under the blue canopy of
heaven. In no other country are the
people so contented and free. Canada has everything that goes to
make a great nation, having great
natural beauties, splendid climate,
and being richly endowed. Mr. Macdonald said that' the Fathers of Confederation laid the foundation and
that the present generation will build
the superstructure.
At the termination ot his address
Mr. Macdonald was accorded rounds
of applause and three cheers were
led by Mr. Thomas Graham.

Courtenay Celebration Biggest
In History Of District
Weatherman    Smiled    and    Success
Rewarded Efforts
Courtenay, July 4.—The biggest
celebration that Courtenay has ever
had or may hope to have for some
time to come was staged here on
Friday and Saturday, the time -set
apart for the celebration of Canada's
Diamond Jubilee, under'the auspices
of Courtenay Assembly No. 3, Native
Sons ot Canada, ably assisted by the
Comox Logging and Railway Company, the Canadian Daughters'
League, the Courtenay-Comox Board
of Trade, the B. P. O. Elks, St.
George's Society and other local organizations. For weeks these organizations had been laying their plans
until the only thing left to assure the
success of the celebration was good
weather. All last week and right up
until Thursday evening the skies
were lowering, with intermittent
showers, but Friday morning broke
clear and bright and all day Friday
and Saturday the weather man smiled benevolently. From practically
the peep of day, people started to
gather until by ten o'clock, the hour
set for the grand parade, the streets
wero crowded with the largest assemblage the town has ever witnessed. They came from all over the
district, from Bloedel's camp to as
far south as Lake Cowlchan.
From the time the parade started
until the last strains of music died
away at the Royston dance on Saturday night, there was something doing
ln the way of entertainment all the
time. There were sports for children
and for adults, loggers' sports, baseball, lacrosse, football, wheels of fortune, housle-housie, hot dogs—everything that could he desired, not forgetting the barbecue which wus so
ably looked after by Mr. W. R. Cooke
and his assistants.. Perhaps the
chief interest centred around the loggers' events and the Stadium was
crowded for these, the only regret
being that there were not more con.
testants from the outside; there were
no contestants from the Mainland.
However, it was a glorious celebration and one that will be remembered tor many a long day. And it
was an orderly crowd for although
there was evidence of some having
imbibed liquid refreshments rather
freely, the police had no trouble
whatever and the keys of the lock-up
might just as well have been thrown
away for all the use they were.

"The Canadian Association football
touring team defeated the Wanganui
representatives at Sprlggens Park on
Saturday afternoon by seven goals to
"The visitors showed their superiority early In the game, and the
game was won in comparative ease.
They showed themselves to be tricky
players and their command over the
ball, their footwork, and their head-
work were things to be admired. A
spirit of close co-ordination prevailed
ln the Canadian ranks, and it was
probably ln this aspect of the game
that they had their greatest superiority over the home side. The Wanganui team were not hopelessly outclassed, however, and bright moments of play received hearty applause from the supporters on the
stand. Where the home team were
found lacking was in finishing attacking movements; they played well
In the outfield, but weak finishing
robbed them of the dash necessary to
penetrate the Canadians' defence.
"The gate is estimated at 3000, and
the takings were just short of £200.
"The teams were as under:—
"Canada—S. Tait, F. Crawley, W.
Moon, R. L. Williams, W. Brolly, J.
Monaghan, D. Thomson, D. Turner,
W. Milligan, D. Archibald, P. Francis.
"Wanganui—F. Kllleen, G. Langs-
low, T. Proudfoot, T. Newsham, E.
Jamleson, J. Fyfe, J. McKechnie, E.
Mackley, K. Ballantyne, A. McLeod,
D. Thomson.
"Both teams received a rousing reception on taking the field.
"Wanganui played with commendable dash at the outset, and a clever
run on the left saw Thomson cross
a good ball for Crawley, to kick
clear. A little steadiness by the local
men at this time might have had Its
reward as the visitors appeared to be
A large gathering of picnickers
attended the annual picnic of tbe
Eagles' Lodge held at Millard's
Beach on Friday, July 1st.
Mr.  Pete McNiven transported  the
merry throng to Millard's Beach,
where a fine programme had been
arranged by the committee men in
charge. Birds, Balloons and ice
cream cones wcre given to the child-
ren. There were races for old and
young alike, with some of thc older
people showing remarkable speed for
their age. As July 1st was one of the
few good days we have had this year
the beach was swarming with children swimming, splashing and ducking each other In the water.
With the setting of the sun the picnic drew to a close with everyone
tired but happy and voting the picnic
one of the biggest and best yet held.
Courtenay. July 5—At Monday
night's city council meeting Mayor
McKenzie reported that he had been
trying to get tbe stadium in the agricultural grounds .which was no
longer considered safe, removed, lt
had been temporarily strengthened
to take care of the large audience
during tlie Confederation celebration.
The Agricultural Society had permitted its election some three years
ago upon a request from the Native
Sons and Mr. Frank Lalonde. The
latter's share of the structure had
since been taken over by Mr. W. J.
Hagarty who, thc mayor thought.
would agree to the demolition of the
building which was now unsightly.
He felt Bure tho Native Sons would
give their share of It to anyone who
would   remove  the  structure.
At this point Aldermun Fielder remarked tllat It was evident Ihat lighting dnys In Courtenay wore not now
as popular as they used to be.
The mayor also reported that owing to damage done to property in
the auto park, presumably by boys
during the night following the holidays, he had been reluctantly obliged to order them to keep out of the
park. It was suggested that the
boys might be put on their honor to
protect the property in future as it
seemed a pity to keep those hoys that
behaved themselves from the pleasure they derived from swimming in
the river at this point.
Inside Men In Evidence

men in front and a neat pass to
Thomson saw the short passing inside game at its besl.

First Score For (imadii
"It was early evident that the Canadian game was the short passing one.
Their inside forwards were playing
close and with the extreme men beginning to move in harmony with the
other trio, the local defence were
often in difficulties.

alert for openings and  seizing on a
pass from Thomson, the centre drove

Float To The City
Courtenay, July 5—Owing to an
unusual amount of snow at this time
of the year in the hills at the source
of the city's water supply, it had
been necessary to apply to the Water
Board for an extension of time for
carrying out the work of surveying
the area of the lakes to be dammed,
In order to obtain the water rights
of the Brown's River watershed by
the city. The City Clerk is to make
the survey and compile the necessary
data at an early opportulity.
The spirit that prompted the idea
behind (he Jnpanese Community's effort in the recent street parade was
shown to be worthy of recognition
when on Monday the float representing "S.S. Canada" and which was
awarded first prize in the parade, was
accepted by tlie city from the Japanese Community and set up ln the
Auto Park. Alderman Lloyd volunteered his services to build a deck
to take the place of the truck top
which formerly formed this part of
the very realistic steamer.
The chairman of Ihe Publlc Works
and Fire committees reported that'
there had been no fires within or
without the cily during the period
from June 20ih (o July 2nd. He said
that mucli credit was due to the
members of the volunteer fire department for their work in the erection of
the elaborate arch al (he junction of
L'nion street and the Island Highway;
also for the float, "The Melting Pot,"
prepared  by them,
The chemical lire (ruck was now
ready to receive tlie chemical tanks.
The hose wagon bad been put in lirst
class order. He drew attention to
lhe coming Fire Chief's convention
and thought it would he well to send
Fire Chief Thomson, who had always
taken a keen Interest In the work,
to (he convention. He would ask for
a small grant in this connection nt
the next meeting.
Alderman Douglas wenl on in report that the Warren ditch, a considerable undertaking, was now completed, tiled and tilled in. Plank
sidewalks had been repaired, Fires
of logs and rubbish had been made;

Considering Hie time allowed the
committee for the organizing of the
.Tubilec sports held at the Recreation
(Jronnds ou Saturday last, they were
a marvellous success. Every item
was carried out in a very efficient
manner and some very closely contested events were witnessed. The
celebration commenced, with the
hoisting of tlie flag in the early morning, terminating at night with a grand
fireworks display and a monster
dance. Tlie different sporting events
wcre ahout the best ever staged in
Cumberland and on the terminal ion
of the.se events, just as darkness fell,
a huge bonfire was lit in the centre of
the football field, and n community
sing-song was indulged iu. The prize
winners in Ilic various events were as

convenience of closing the roads
would be trilling and the benefit
great. The mayor and alderman
Douglas had previously considered
the advisability of this step. In some
cases, as, for instance, the approaches
to the bridge, it was impossible and
many complaints had been received
when the roads were closed previously. Alderman Douglas, who explained that n heavy coat of gravel
will this year be spread over the
asphalt, will interview .Mr. W. P.
Beavan,   the   engineer.
Alderman Fielder asked what could
be (lone to prevent holes appearing
in the road at the busy intersections.
Aid. Douglas thought that concrete
would be the only solution. Aid. Macdonald explained that the first which
was applied last season was not expected to make a complete job. li
did. however, have the effect of showing up lhe low spots and the poorly
drained sections of the  road  bed.
Alderman .Macdonald, reporting
briefly for the electric light cinniin-

Their Excellencies Make Friends in Banff
•TJn their receni first official tour of thc Dominion across to
^ the Pacific Coast, not tlie least attractive place visited
by Viscount Willingdon, (iovernor-dcneral of Canada, and
Lady Willingdon, was Banff, Alberta, in the Canadian
Rockies, famous for the beauty of its scenery and thc hospitality afforded by thc Banff Springs Hotel; one of the
most Imposing and beautiful buildings of its kind on the
north American Continent wliieh ib shown lower left.
•As a record of their visit the acrompanyine unusual
photneraph.' were taken by kind permission of Tie Ir (-A:
ccllenctes. They show Lord and Ladv Wllllnadon each tn
turn fecdinc a massive specimen nf Buffalo Bill! who spends
hit lordly leisure in the Buffalo Park at Band, another ot
the great attractions of the town. Furred to his hooves,
the monster animal, like a survival from some prc-histonc
period, gently and calmly takes his meals from the hands
of bis distinguished hosts. Another photograph shows Her
Excellency feeding a baby buffalo by hand, while yet another
gives us Their Excellencies at a point of vantage on the top
of one of the corrals at tbe Banff Park. Lady Willingdon
is seated at her caw, but His Lordship lias climbed to thu
very top of tho corral and both are enjoying the view from
this unusual ito-dtion. It is safe to assume that Their Excellencies will treasure these photographs as a record of
a visit which, although part of an official tour, was not in
tliisa case altogether as austere as such tours are apt to be.

tlie Yellow Man bleeding from the
mouth ns the result of ^well-timed
blows. Feinting, ducking, side-stepping and throwing over shafts that
had Wing worried, it looked that the
end woald come any old time with
Hay on the canvas listening to the
birdies sing. As a ma'tter of record.
White sent across a hook that spilled
the Wing person to the mat in such a
manner that lie fell under tlle ropes
and outside of the ring. The blow
sagged lllm, but he came back at the
"seven" count and tore Into the lead,

complete disregard of his own apparent danger. Set to parry off

1 mention the incident to convey a
moral—the danger to the State lurking in senseless partisan animosities.
It has been the bane of political life
with both parlies in Canada for the
pasl sixty years—argument by epithet, reasoning tinctured with abase,
the contending lor power with unseemly phrases. 11' Brown and .Macdonald could forget bitter partisan
strife sixty years ago for the larger
task of laying the foundation of a nation, may we not hope that political
parties to-day, engaged on the superstructure, will emulate their example
and strive only as high-minded rival
architects engaged on n great creation each endeavoring to produce the
better design."
To Sir A. 1*. Cull, whom he referred to as a cultured gentleman. Justice Macdonald gave the real credit
of the idea ot* Confederation. He had
advocated*the union of all the provinces nine years previously.
Room im* Further Expansion
The speaker ventured the opinion
that there was still further room lor
expansion. lie thought that the next
sixty years would see Ottawa not
only the capital of the present nine
provinces, but of all British Dominions around and about the continent
—Newfoundland, West Indies. Grilish
Guiana. British Honduras and Bermuda, where il was felt that sooner
or later they must be united with
some part of this continent, preferably Canada, ns Ihey were patriotic
and loyal citizens of Great Britain.
Justice Macdonald then dwelt at
some length on tbe industrial and
material expansion of tbe Dominion
aud the glorious future which was
in store for Canada. "But," he said,
".Material progress while a mailer
of pride iu the past and hope for
the future, is nut the great desideratum, There are higher values. We

leal development In the soul of a
people which always should accompany physical growth. 'What do
tbey know of England who only England know?' May the underlying
thought in these words be unceasingly applicable to Canada. We must
build another altar of fire upon our
Canadian hearthstone, where the
priests of that altar will hold aloft
like a burning taper a great national
ideal, symbolizing in the houI of the
nation those living realities—not less
real because intangible—of a great
national moral culture. We must
love and venerate tlle Ideal; cultivate
national dignity, the elevation ot* sentiment, the rellnenient of manners.
These high conceptions are nourished by preserving the inheritance of
great traditions and social virtues,
together with bumble national dependence upon the God of all nations.
And only In so far as we take hold
of these seemingly • unsubstantial
things can a nation's soul evolve and
its people be schooled iu tlle knowledge that on this foundation only
can our vast Dominion rest."
A Thrice Blest Canada
After paying a tribute to the
French naiion within the borders of
Canada, tbe speaker concluded:
"Happy Canada! richly endowed with
Earth's best racial strains. Thrice
blest of Heaven! Blessed with bounteous wealth, magic charm and Bcen-
ic grandeur. May it be our task,
that as the Fathers of Confederation
laid the foundations, we will ral.se
the superstructure beautiful and
strong, so that this Dominion may
become the home for increasing millions as tlie years go by, where living
under just laws, wisely administered,
each may receive the fair fruits of
his toil and, to ciuote another, "Indolence alone may suffer want," may

Helene Costello and Walter Merrill play the young sweethearls, aad

performances in unusual type roles.
Against the sinister, shadowy background of the docks and dives of
Llmehouse, unfolds the thrilling
