RALLY AND SMOKER
VERY SUCCESSFUL
"Experience"
Showing the Lure of Life and
All Its Caressing Vices —A
Great, Simple, Human Drama
Throbbing With Life.
The special attraction at the Hollo Theatre Frriday and Saturday of
this week Is "Experience," a picturiza-
tlon of the lure of life and its caresB-
ing voices to "Youth." The way of
the world with one who has turned to
the left. The hand of love, lifting a
broken soul to happiness. Shaped into swift-rushing drama that moves
with hundreds of players through
scenes of tingling realism.
See the whole gamut of life In an
hour and a half! In this great, simple,
human Btory, throbbing with the
heart-beat of the world.
The story ot "Experience" is the
tale of "Youth"—a story as old as
yesterday's ten thousand years —as
new as tomorrow! "Youth" is happy
to the rose-bowered cottage until he
meets with "Ambition" who tells him
of the city beyond with Its wonderful
opportunities. So he leaves his mother
with "Love" and "Hope" and goes
forth to meet "Experience."
"In the city "Youth" lirst encounters "Pleasure." Dazzled by her brilliancy, he asks "Opportunity' 'to wait
before they discuss Mb work. But
"Opportunity" will not wait and goes
off.
At the Primrose Path "Pleasure"
Introduces him to her frlonds, "Beauty," "Wealth," "Fashion," "Inaoxlca-
tlon" and "Temptation." All are Interested in "Youth," with his enthusiasm, and welcome him to their midst.
At his home "Youth's" mother has
died. "Love," braving a storm, sends
him a telegram thBt Ib Intercepted by
"Temptation." Hearing no word from
his "Love" goes to the city, where she
Is directed to the PrimroBe Path. But
"Love" is not allowed to enter the
cabaret and so returns to her home.
"Youth's" money has fast disappeared. "Chance," waiting for this
opportunity, directs him to a gambling
house where he can double his money.
But luck Is not with "Youth" and ho
leaves the place bankrupt with only
the ring which "Love" had given him.
At the "HouBe of Last IleBort,"
"Youth" applies for work. A Blum-
ming party made up of his former
friends come to tbo Tavern. With the
exception of "Temptation" all have
forgotten him. She slips "Wealth's"
wallet into his apron. "Youth" Is accused of theft and thrown from the
place.
Sick and disgusted, "Youth" meets
"Vice" and "Habit" who show him
how he can forget by means ot drugs.
His friendship for "Habit" becomes so
strong that he consents to go with
"Crime" and rob "Wealth's" house.
On the way he hears the singing ot
a choir In a church. Remembering
his mother, he refuses to go and falling on his knees, resolves to return to
his home.
With "Experience" he returns to the
little town. Thore "Love" and "Hope"
await his coming. "Ambition' 'again
seeks "Youth" who with "Love" at his
Bide starts anew.
A funny comedy entitled "Wanted
a Baby," as well as "Mutt and Jeff,"
wiil be Bcreened with "Experience."
Doable  Feature  Show  Monduj*  and

Liquid and solid refreshments woro
served in abundance, also tho old
soldiers' standby, cigarettes.
A number of friends of the ex-service men had volunteered to entertain
them with songs, musical numbers,
etc. All the artists were woll received, but perhaps special mention
should be made of the efforts of Mr.
Harry Jackson and Mr. Billy Littlo,
both of whom received enthusiastic
applause.
Other artists contributing to the
lengthy programme were Messrs. W.
Williams, Westwood, Jack Stuart, Bob
Splttal, Dave Kenney, It. Yates, Casey,

WHEEL GOVERNMENT
GOES DOWN TO DEFEAT
Political Sessions of the High School
Club Wux Very Interesting.
A great political landslide took place
at the High School Club on Friday
night. Thc Michell Government was
defeated by a substantial majority on
an important party issue. As a result
the resignation of the Government was
accepted, and the President called upon the Opposition leader, M. Hood, to
form a cabinet.
The meeting this week will be
largely taken up by thc Speech from
iho Throne and debate on the reply.
It is felt by those in close touch with
tho sltuntlon that the Michell party
were somewhat surprised by a snap
olo and are likely to show a vigorous
reaction. However, the new admlnis-
Inilion are preparing a strong programme   for   coming   meetings   and
liould be able to retain control of the
house.

kept In the tank ut all times ready for
use, hut sonic person of small moii-
lallly hud helped himself and placed
tbe truck In what might have been a
very serious condition, for a delay ln
order to hunt up gas might cause consequences of great danger and perhaps result lu loss of life. If tho person guilty of this action could be found
he should be severely dealt with.
Many articles have been stolen from
the hall at different times, such as
clothes, tools and batteries, one of the
latter costing $50.

a large shack on the west side of
Chinatown. At Ilrst It looked In the

large proportions, the flames lighting
up the surroundings brilliantly, and
hundreds of people hurried to the

Tlie building was part of the Wilson

While the lire was racing ill tho
hotel a loud explosion was heard,
which was afterwards found to have

Who Is Your Shoe Man?
People, don't be foolkh and buy che.ip shoes. There
is no such thing as a cheap shoe. Buy the better
makes of shoes, and your shoe bill at the end of the
year will be just half what it would be if you bought
the cheap shoes—they make for Dry Goods and

Buy the kind that are made for a real Shoe Store—
you will find that there will be a big difference.

Eilitor Cumberland Islander.
Sir.—With the development of sport
in the interior cities ot B. C, tliere
comes the question of competition between teams from these cities and
those of tlie coast, either as exhibitions or for provincial championsbips.
It is well known that there is some
semi-professionalism in these interior
towns and this prevents competition,
since the coast teams are amateur. It
would seem that an attempt should
now be made to organize Local Boards
of the Amateur Union in all the centres of population ill the province.
This letter is written in the hope that
some useful information may reach
public-spirited citizens In outlying
ities.
We consider lt to bo fully proved
(hat seiiii-pi-ot'essioiiallsm is wholly
demoralizing to the hoys of any town
nml to community spirit in general,
even though it may create spasmodic
enthusiasm and rivalries. In some
sports In some countries semi-pro-
fesslonnllsm is allowed, that is, amateurs are allowed to compete with and
against professionals without losing
Iheir amateur standing; In others, one
who so competes Is himself considered
n professional and cannot lie ro-
Instuled. The Amateur Athletic Union
of Canada has adopted an Intermediate
definition which applies to all athletic
iports In Canada except cricket, golf
nnd Indoor bowling. The definition is
as follows:
"An amateur ls one who 1ms never:
(a) 1. Entered or competed In any
athletic competition for a staked
bet, moneys, private or^public, or
gate receipts.
3. Taught or assisted in the pursuit of
any athletic exercise or sport as a
means of livelihood.
.'!. Heceived any bonus or payment ln
lieu of loss of time while playing as
a member of any club or engaged
In any athletic sport or exercise, or
any consideration whatever, for any
service as an athlete, except actual
travelling or hotel expenses.
■1. Seld or pledged his prizes.
6. Promoted   an   athletic   competition
for personal gain.
NOTE.—An athlete guilty of any of
the above offences can never be reinstated.
(b) All athlete who has competed with
or against a professional for a
prize or where the gate receipts
are charged or a collection taken
up {except as may be specially
provided for by the bylaws of the
A. A. U. of C.) or has entered in
a competition under a name other
than his own, shall be ineligible
for registration and competition
as an amateur.
NOTE.—Such an athlete may be
eligible for reinstatement.
(c) All others shall be considered
eligible for registration and competition In the A. A. U. of C. and
Its affiliated bodies."
The A. A. U. of C. is composed of its
provincial branches and national governing bodies In hockey,lacrosse, baseball, basketball, rowing, cycling, etc.
Football does not belong to the union,
and does not officially accept our
amateur definition, but, up to date,
the footballers have not broken relations by playing with or against professionals and it is hoped that they
will eventually come in. Some other
sports, such as tennis, are not members of tlie Union, but they officially
accept its amateur definition.
The executive of the B. 5. branch of
the union is composed of representatives of provincial governing bodies
in Individual sports, with district consuls and representatives from local
boards. Local boards have been in
operation In Victoria, New Westminster and Vancouver for mnny years,
ond they are now in thorough control
of the situation in these cities. It is
hoped that this spring at least two
new hoards may be established, one
in the Okanagan-Kamloops district
and one in the Kootenays.
Local Hoards.
1. Local boards of this Union may
lie established in any city, municipality of district in British Columbia, as
tlie executive committee may determine, such boards being responsible
for the governance consistent with tlle
constitution and bylaws of all amateur
sport In this district. i
2. Local boards shall consist of not
less than four members of tills Union.
3. Each member of a local board
shall lie represented by one delegate,
and Bitch delegntes shall compose the
board, each delegate being entitled to
one vote. Such delegates may be
represented by proxy.
4. The appointment of every delegate and alternate shall be in writing,
duly certified by the chief executive
nllicer or secretary of the appointing
members
5. Knell board Bhall elect n chairman    and    secrctiiry-treasuror,    not
lecessnrily from among Its members.
II. Decisions of local hoards shall be
lubjeot to the approval of the board
of governors ln all cases.
7. Local boards shall accept this
constitution and bylaws and be governed entirely by same.
8. The powers of local boards shall
lie as enumerated In the bylaws.
The officials of the Union would
welcome correspondence with any Individual or club looking toward the
formation of such local hoard.
Everyone   will   readily   understand
that in an unorganized district most
athletes will have done things which
are not strictly in accordance with tlie
amateur law, but it would he understood   that   all   who  arc   essentially
amateurs would be given cards al the
lime of organization and only real professionals refused.   This lias been the
course pursued throughout Canada as
the   Union   has   extended   Its   active
jurisdiction, and there seems to be no
reason  why the same   sensible   procedure should  not bo followed here.

here as elsewhere is continually up against
the keenest competition. Because of this his
profit is kept down to a close margin. Did he
endeavor to ej-cact a large profit he could not
stay in business. However, we will for three
days make that margin closer still. The
increased purchasing power of your dollar
as compared with a year ago is offset by a
greatly decreased wage. Well, why should
you kick. The worker has the " honor " of
producing everything, and he is so "generous"
that he gives us the privilege of selling back
to him what he produces.
According to information issued by the
Bank of Commerce there were in Canada in
1921, 2,451 commercial failures, as compared
with 1,078 in 1920. This will show how uncertain business success is to the merchant.

BASKETBALL
CONCLUDING GAMES OF
FIRST ROUND SCHEDULE
Control of Hall Taken Over By
Cumberland Literary and
Athletic Association
The last scheduled game In the
Comox Basketball League was played
in the Baud Hall on Saturday evening,
when the High School team trimmed
the Methodist team ln the intermediate game. The other game of the evening was between the junior boys of
the Presbyterian and Methodist
churches, the latter managiug to defeat the Presbyterians by one point,
in a 8 to 7 score.
.Methodists 8, Presbyterians 7.
This was one of those Bplcy encounters as is usually the case when the
smaller boys come together. The
Presbyterians ran away from their
opponents in the Ilrst half, and they
hud the scoreboard standing 7-3 in
tlieir favor. In the second half the
.Methodists came right buck at their
rivals, and the excitement was keen
when they evened up tho score 7-all
just a few minutes before time. The
Methodists scored a tree throw just
before tlle whistle blew, thus winning
the gamo 8-7.
These youngsters not only put up a
lively but Interesting game. It Ib at
this stage that they should be developed ui.u given every encouragement.
llilfli .School 19, Methodists 16.
The last game of the programme
was between the High School and
iMethodist teams, and was full of Interest, as It looked as If the Mets
might take the scholars into camp.
The School was without the services
of Burns, while the Churchmen wero
strengthened by Mick Mitchell.
The whole game was featured by
close checking, and at the end of the
lirst half the High School led 11 to 4.
After the breathing spel the Mets.
came back with a much stiller argument and pulled up to within a couple
of points of the students, Toots Lewis
limling the hoop from all corners of
the lot for the Methodists. When the
smoke had cleared the High School
were in the lead 19-16. The teams:
HIGH SCHOOL — Donald Watson
(5), Cyril Michell, Jock Stevenson (7),
Jimmy Wilcock, Monty Hood (7), and
Heck Stewart, spare.
METHODISTS—Toots Lewis (13),
Gordon Mounce, Reg. O'Brien, Stevenson, Mick Mitchell (2) and Bert Wilcock, spare.
Toots Lewis was the best player on
the floor. Jock Stevenson and Monty
Hood were the bright lights of the
scholars' quintette.
Basketball Notes
A meeting of the Comox Basketball
League waB held In the Athletic -Hall
on Wednesday evening at 7.30. A
communication was received stating
that the Board ot Management ot the
Cumberland Literary and Athletic
Association intended taking over the
Band Hall and all athletics. Those
present seemed ln favor of playing
another round of the league, but lt
was decided that definite action had
better not be taken until arrangements could be made with the Athletic
Association, and a meeting will probably be called sometime next week to
proceed with the league.
An application was made by Bevan
to play Intermediate ln the second
round of the schedule, and play all
games in Cumberland. The Owls'
management said they were willing to
play in the senior division ln the next
round. This would give four senior
and four Intermediate teams.
The Owls and High School teams
are tied for the premier position ln
the intermediate league, and lt will
be necessary for the two teams to play
off for the championship of the Ilrst
round. ThlB game will no doubt draw
a record crowd when the two teams
come together, In view of tho fact
that they were so evenly matched In
thc lust game. The date has not beon
arranged, but It will possibly be a
week Saturday. It will be announcod
by the usual posters.

VALENTINE SOCIAL BY
NARAMATA BIBLE CLASS
One of the most enjoyabhe Bocial
evenings was held ln the basement of
St. George's Presbyterian Church on
Monday evening last, when the Nara-
mata Bible Class entertained their
friends at a Valentine social. The
entwined hearts for choosing partners
caused quite a mix-up, but was at
length straightened out to the satisfaction of all..
The drawings and descriptions of
the dresses ot their partners by the
hoys were very funny, but the final
march was side-splitting, when Mr.
Chas. Nash put them through the different stunts.
The success of the evening was
largely due to the efforts ot the social
committee, under the convenorshlp of
Miss Ida McFadyen.      —
