COURTENAY, Mar. 9.—The chief
business of the city council on Monday night was the consideration of
proposed school estimates which
would considerably Increase the tax
rate of "Courtenay. MesBrs. Geo. H.
Pidcock, Jobn Sutton and F. Kerton,
of the Courtenay School Board, were
all present to meet the council. A
letter had been received by the Trustees from Mr. S. J. Willis, Supt. of
Education, conveying the information
that the Department of Education
would contribute sixty per cent of
the cost of a new four-roomed school,
with the proviso that the coutrluution
should not exceed ten thousand dollars. 'In a letter addressed to the
city council, the School Trustees
pointed out the valuable assistance
of Mr. P. P. Harrison, M.L.A., Mayor
J. W. McKenzie, and Aid. E. L. MacDonald in obtaining an increased
grant. It ls expected that the erection of the new High School will be
commenced as soon as possible as its
necessity is realized.
The Elk Hotel at Comox made application for a supply of city wator
to the nine-hole golf course at Comox.
The application was accepted and a
water outlet to each of the putting
greens will 'be Installed at the cost
of $2.50 a mouth per outlet.
The Courtenay Boys' Band asked
for a grant for the purchase of new
instruments. After a good deal of
discussion a sum of $206 was voted
tor this purpose. Aid. Wm. Douglas
submitted a report of the public
works done since last meeting. Mr.
Joseph Orr's offer of $150 for lots 16
and 17 In block 2 on Victoria Street
was accepted by the city,
i At a later hour the council went
Into committee with the members of
.the Courtenay School Board, when
the school estimates were approved
with the exception of three items,
which the council asserts would be an
extraordinary expenditure. These
are Items for manual training, home
economics and singing.
During the month of February, 259
pupils out of a total ot 478 had perfect
attendance records at the Cumberland
Public School. The school percentage was 92.2. Divisions 2, 3, and 10
each had the same attendance at the
P.T.A. meeting and therefore each
will have tbe Association's picture
during the month. Miss Aspesy's
class, Division 4, won the attendance
shield for the month.
Classes will soon begin putting ln

Any flowering plants, etc., suitable
for the gardens will be appreciated If

Locals Lose In First
Round Of B.K. Cup
By virtue of a 3-1 win over the
Cumberland Intermediates, In what
the Alberni "News" chose to call the
most important game of the season,
the West Coast United team advanced
to the second round of the Brackman-
Ker cup. This was accomplished by
the nld of a home game, a nice heavy
Hold on which only Alberni can play,
nnd last but not least, the referee.
In having such a field the West Coasters have a most decided advantage
and to beat tbem on their home
grounds a visiting team has to play
just about twice as well as the homesters, for In order to stand up at all
one has to be nothing short of a professional skater. After being handicapped by having to travel and tho
aforementioned heavy Held, and then
see tbe referee award West Coast a
goal which the Alberni trainer himself admitted was off-side—It was the
last straw and certainly It broke the
Intermediates' back. It would not
have been so bad had the referee not
awarded an off-side kick In the flrst
place, but to give the visitors an offside kick. and then change his
decision—It certainly looks as though
someone bad blundered. But the decisions of the referee are not to be
questioned and be he right or wrow?
Hint's nobody's business.
The Intermediates, with all this on
tbelr minds, proved their mettle in
the dying moments of the game when
they hammered ceaselessly on the
home team's defense, forcing them to
kick Into the woods to relieve the
pressure and finally forcing Gilliland,
Ihe West Coast fullback, to act in the
capacity of goalkeeper in order to
save a counter. Of course Referee
Jones, like a good scout, gave the
visitors a penalty which was taken
by Marshall and saved by Perry, who
slapped the ball out of play for a
On the day's play. West Coast
deserved their victory as their forwards shot much more accurately,
but tbey did not deserve to win by
3-1 for the difference between the two
teams was not that great.

Easterners Want
increased Duty On
Bituminous Coal
Mr. A. W. Neill, federal member for
Comox-Alberni, entered into an argument with Mr. Smith, member for
Cumberland, Nova Scotia, on the
question of Increased duty on American bituminous coal.
Mr. Neill Protests
Hansard under the date of Martin*
1st, in the debate on the Budget,
shows a speech by Mr. Smith, member for Cumberland, Nova Scotia, In
whicli he urges the claim of his
Province for higher protection on bituminous coal coming In from the;
Stales. He asks that the duty should
be a dollar per ton.
Mr. Neill interrupted with a question asking hlm If he was aware that
a duty of a dollar a ton, which is
double the present duty, would practically put out of operation all the
coal mines in British Columbia.
In reply, Mr. Smith indicated that
while it might work a hardship,, to
the British Columbia coal trade, thc
greater advantage would be to the
Nova Scotian mines.
Mr. Neill retorted that he hoped
Mr. Smith's Conservative friends from
British Columbia would note that
statement of policy on behalf of their
Nova Scotia wants an increased
duty on American bituminous coal,
but there Is a reciprocal item In the
American tariff regarding coal bv
which tlieir duty on our coal automatically becomes the same as our
duty on their coal. Consequently if
Canada raises the duty on American
coal coming into Ontario to a dollar
a ton, the same duty would iimmed-
lately apply to our coal going Into
Seattle which would mean cutting off
that very considerable market at once.
The debate can be found on page 825

Being a Commentary on Current Topics
By E. O. R.
Miss Edith Horbury, of. South Wellington, arrived In Cumberland last
night on a short visit to her parents,
Mr. and Mrs. J. Horbury.
"Hands up all those who have heard
of Dr. McCoy." This was the request
made to a class of children between
the ages of 10 to 13. Every hand
went up. They had all heard of the
famous Doctor, and there ls no doubt
that if a questionnaire was sent
round to every resident man, woman
and child ln Cumberland asking if
they had heard of him, nearly all
would reply in the affirmative. Not
only that, but they would all more or
less be conversant with his teachings,
aud muny of them would be putting
them Into practice.
There is an old saying that there
Is nothing new under the sun, and
wliat Dr. McCoy is so successfully
telling the people to do today, the
Church has been trying to tell the
people io do for centuries. There is
just this difference. Dr. McCoy calls
it "dieting," the Church calls It "fasting." All Dr. McCoy has done Is in
lake consciously or unconsciously tbe
advice of Ihe Church regarding rules
of fasting and apply his scientilic
knowledge to It with successful
results. His advice Is to take a ten
days' treatment of orange juices and
the like, and then follow a prescribed
course of meals. The Church's teaching covers the whole year, with one
fasting tor in present dny parlance
"dieting") day in each week, that is.
Friday, and "to ho temperate in all
things." Altogether the Church has
set aside about ,100 days lu the year
to be observed as "Days of Fasting or
Abstinence." Dr. McCoy ls desirous
of seeing people enjoying healthy,
wholesome lives, therefore he says,
"Diet, diet, diet." The object of fasting (dieting) according to the teaching of the Church Is that the flesh
may lie subdued to the spirit; in other
words, lhat the body may become an
apt and willing minister of the soul.
The teaching of the Church ls often
j sneered at and scoffed at. If people
j would sneer less and scoff less and
j practice more what the Church docs
(each, thero would he no need for the
I Dr. McCoys and other apostles of this
j old doctrine In a new clothing, to wit,
I dieting.
It was a pity that there was such
a poor attendance at the lecture given
by the Rev. A. W. Corker on Tuesday
evening In the Parish Hall.   His subject was on the work done amongst
the   Indians   at   Alert Bay, and was
illustrated by a very interesting set
of slides made from his own photographs and  drawings.     Mr.    Corker
came out to Alert Bay nearly forty
years ago, and spent over thirty years
| amongst the Indians at the northern
end  of Vancouver   Island.   When  he
arrived there he found them dominated  entirely  by  the  Medicine  men,
j who east their  spell  of  magic  over
tthe people and largely ruled them by
I fear.   He  met with  considerable  op-
I position from these "witch-craft" men
and on more than one occasion took
| liis life in  his hands.     One day he
| "called their blufi" by Issuing a challenge   to   them   which   they   did   not
accept."  The   resull   of  this   was  to
lessen their hold on the tribe.   There
were pictures thrown on  the screen
contrasting   the   appearance   of   the
people when he arrived and when he
left.    In the one case they appear an
a dull and decadent race; in the other
they   appear   bright   and   intelligent,
and taking a pride iu what (hey do.
Mr. Corker also revealed some interesting totem lore, on which he is an
There is a saying which many love
to quote and that is. "Charity begins
at home." This Is almost always the
argument if the question of Mission
work come up. Had Mr. Corker acted
on such advice the Indians al Alert
Bay might still be living in the ignorance and vice of superstition. This
applies to all the world. It was tlie
Missionary spirit that made Britain
what she is today. Missionaries are
always in the lead, paving the way
for civilization. It is the Livingstones, the Grenfells, the Corkers and
their like thut give the answer to
those who are always harping that
"Charity begins at home." They
agree with the sentiment, but they go
further. Charity, they say, begins at
home, but IT DDKS NOT END
THERE, It is this spirit that prompts
them to go out into all the world aud
preach the Gospel to every creature.
Three short years ago, huddled
round an old stove in the Agricultural
Hall at Courtenay. there gathered a
few people—some from Comox, one
or two from Boyston, the remainder
hailing from Cumberland, The occasion was the first open Badminton
tournament of the' Comox District.
and if memory serves us right, there
was not a single spectator.
The scene Is changed. This time
it is the Royston Imperial Pavillion; '
the time, Wednesday and Thursday
of this week; the occasion being the
third open Badminton tournament of
the district. Sixty players took the
floor in the various matches and they
were cheered on by a crowd of spectators whose number could not be
estimated. Badminton in this district
in the past three years has made very
.rapid strides, with Cumberland leading the way In the matter of numbers
of players and clubs, whilst a good
mauy of the Cumberland players,
owing to lack of accommodation in
the city, joined the big club at Royston. It was very gratifying on the
occasion of this, the third tournament,
to see so many supporters from Cumberland. That they thoroughly enjoyed the. two evening's play, goes
without saying. It bespeaks for the
game next winter increased popularity.
The most notable game on Wednesday evening was the defeat of Max
Blunt, holder of the Lisle Fraser
trophy. Parkin, of Headquarters,
eliminated Blunt in the first round.
Thursday night's play produced
some very excellent Badminton, the
good gallery present seeing some
very hard and close games. Perhaps
the player to receive the most
applause was young Bert Carey, of
Royston. In the men's singles, playing against a veteran campaigner like
H. E. Murray, the youthful Carey, who
is only fifteen and so small he cannot
see over the top of the net, put up a
wonderful exhibition. He lost out in
three games to Murray, and the applause at the finish was a great compliment to this young Royston boy.
The games were continued until early
Friday morning, this being necessary
in order to finish the tournament as
per orders of the committee. This
annual tournament bus now reached
a state that might be called "big,"
and if, in future years, it is to be a
success, some plan different from the
one at present in vogue, will have to
I be formulated. To keep a player
'. hanging around the courts for a mat-
I ter of four hours without a single
\ game, then expect that same player
! to play nine or ten games practically
■ in a row. is asking too much. We
i would suggest that a time be set, and
I any player failing to answer his or
| her name after thc third call, auto-
! matically defaults.
I Cumberland players did well, the
I ladles' singles trophy being won by
j Mrs. Shenstone, whilst the mixed
I doubles trophy was won by Mr. and
] Mrs. Shenstone. Harry Idiens and
Capt. Ash won the men's doubles,
Mrs. Falrbalrn and Mrs. Cliffe, of
Comox, won the ladles' doubles, and
H. Idiens (Royston) the men's singles.
The trophy for the first year playera
I in mixed doubles was won by Miss
Roy and O. Wilson (Royslon), who
defeated Miss Hunden aud Banner-
man after a hard game.
At the conclusion of Ihe games, Mr.
Thomas (Jraham presented the cups,
and in a very enthusiastic manner
I congratulated all tlie players. Irrespective of whether they were winners of a trophy or not. This was
i the flrst occasion, Mr. Oraham said,

Aid. Parnham
Honored For His
Faithful Services
Services covering a period of twenty
years were rewarded ou Wednesday
evening last in the Anglican Hall,
when Aid. Chas. J. Parnham waa
presented with a magnificent travelling bag. Mr. A. J. Taylor, president
of the Hospital Board, occupied the
chair; seated at his right being Mr.
John Thompson and on his left, Dr.
G. K. MacNaughton. A tine musical
programme had been arranged, with
the Byng Boys Orchestra also in
attendance. Those contributing to
the programme included the Misses
Hood, .Messrs. It. Goodali, W. Jackson, II. L. Bates, Sam Jones, H. Jackson and D. Bannerman. All the artists received enthusiastic encores,
Miss Hood being especially pleasing
in three well rendered selections,
whilst Messrs. H. Jackson and D.
Bannerman caused much merriment
by their "Old Professor" turn.
Mr.   Taylor,   at   tbe   conclusion   of
the musical programme, in a few well
j chosen words, outlined the reason for
the gathering that evening.   He said
j he would not waste any time In mak-
I ing a long speech, but would call on
\Vr. MacsN'aughton to say a few words.
j The   genial   doctor,   in   a   humorous
j vein, spoke of the early days of Cum-
' berland and of his associations with
!Ald. Parnham; and of the opinion he
| had formed of him, which, said Dr.
| MacNaughton,    he   had   never   any
reason to change.   He (the speaker)
i had   always   found   Aid.   Parnham   a
i most willing and conscientious work-
' er.  one  nf  the  best   public  spirited
men he had ever met, and his activ-
; ities in hospital work had covered a
: period of twenty years, seventeen of
which  lie had  served   as   treasurer.
i They   were   gathered   together   that
: evening to honor Aid. Parnham for
, tbose twenty years of generous, faith-
, ful   service.    He   had   very   much
pleasure in calling Aid. Parnham to
come   forward   and   receive a, small
' token, a well appointed travelling bag,
from   tbe  Board  of   Management   of
■■ the Cumberland General, In apprecia-
: tion of iiis magnificent services.   Aid.

be presented with a token of appreciation ills! happened to be the secretary
of the meeting on the night the idea

The Cumberland Islander
FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 1927.
Not long ago we sat in the grill room of a big
hotel.   All about us was the confusion of smart
society.   The wild tom-tom of jazz music, young
men in clawhammer suits, and
SOCIETY       young girls in nothing much.
AND SUCCESS   Seated across the table from
us was a representative salesman.   He was leaving in an hour on a night train.
His mind was on his business, on his appointment
of tomorrow.   He did not seem to be aware of
the rabble that danced about him; he gave no
thought to the music and the girls.   He was
studying on how to  forge ahead—a voluntary
scholar in the whirlpool of city society life.
Longfellow asks: "Where would the scholai
live In solitude, or in society? In the stillnes.
of the country, where he can hear the heart oi
Nature beat, or in the dark, gray town where ht
can hear and feel the throbbing feet of man?"
Longfellow did not live to learn his lesson n
the midst of jazz. His Wayside Inn of Sudburj
town was far removed from the glittering cabar
ets of this day and age. He was speaking o
scholars, and the world still has a few scholars
in spite of school and college athletics. We all
admire the scholar and the poet, but the student
of business is the big man of today. And the
successful man in any walk of life, while he may
not be unmindful of society, must be more mindful of success.
It takes courage to call together serious
thoughts while the orchestra is playing ragtime,
but this lad across the table is a student of business and he will win. It takes more brains and
patience to build up a bank balance than it does
to win prizes playing bridge. You must acquire
the habit of looking ahead, not just looking on.
The clang and the bang of the big drum must not
be allowed to distract your attention. The time-
wasting demands of society do not bring you success in life. The perennial bachelor may be very
popular with the ladies and wear the latest
clothes but he seldom is looked upon as a good
endorser on a note.
of morbid regret is apt to get your goat. What
is past, is past. The mill will never grind again
with the water that has flowed down the stream.
No amount of worry over the past will help the
future. No regrets over yesterday will profit
today.   We are all under sentence of death.
The penalty may be exacted of you today, or
tomorrow or in fifty years. What matters when
the summons comes? This old world will still
wag on and in a few short hours you will be forgotten.
We all make mistakes, we all fall for fool
blunders. The old man who growls about the
youth of today was probably meaner than sin
when he was a boy. Forget the things that are
done and cannot be undone. Never visit the
tomb of the past. Always avoid the morgue of
miserable thoughts. Why wear the winding
sheet of yesterday's mismanagement? Why
chant the hymn of regret when the world is
waiting for the sunshine and wants a song of
courage? Scatter sunshine while you may, for
the chances are, you will be a long time dead.
Wandering in the cemetery of the past, reading
the epitaphs of ended effort, gets a fellow into a
mental condition where  he is liable to see the
bleaching bones of old, old

fact that he had seen a boy kiss his daughter of
fifteen. He wanted to horsewhip the lad. You
would have thought the girl had been contaminated by the touch of the boy's lips.
Poor old dad! He had forgotten how he had
loved that little sweetheart of his when he was
but a boy of fifteen. He had forgotten how he
kissed her—on the porch of her home, while riding in a buggy or singing in the hammock. He
kissed his sweetheart and neither he nor she
"went to the dogs."
Look at the middle-aged folk who are friends
and neighbors. Many of them knew you when
they were boys in short trousers or little girls
wearing their hair in pigtails. Why, we actually
used to play kissing games m the old sitting room
before we pulled the taffy. "Pillow" and "post-
office" were the popular sports in those days. We
brazenly laid the pillow on her feet and she would
kneel down and let you smack her ruby lips right
before everybody. And we used to walk under
the shadows of the trees with our arms around
the little girl. We went buggy-riding and wrapped the lines about the whip-socket so that wc
could have the use of both arms and hands in our
own little petting parties.
If you kissed and yet escaped damnation, by
what peculiar twist of logic do you arrive at the
conclusion that present day kissing will ruin the

the first thing about badminton and

COURTENAY, Mar. 9.—At the meeting of the Courtenay-Comox Board of
Trade held ln the city hall on Tuesday night, the subject of advertising
In pamphlet form was considered.
There were a number ot communications with offers from Victoria, Saanich and Nanaimo. It was decided to
subscribe to a road map which is boing produced by the Sydney and
Islands Review, as by this means the
auto camp here will be clearly Indicated on the map. It was also decided
that the Board of Trade get out a
pamphlet of its own for distribution.
Messrs. Kirk, Midwinter and Anderton were appointed a committee In
this connection, with instructions to
report back to the Board.
Mr. Wm. Douglas reported that
arrangements for the Klondyke dance
to be held on the 20th of April were
going forward. The Gaiety theatre
has been engaged and he intended to
call a meeting of the whole board for
the purpose of appointing sub-committees at a future date.
Mr. E. h. MacDonald reported that |
the committee had taken up the mat-1
ter of foreshore rights and the piling
in the river with Mr. C. D. Bridges,
of the Courtenay Saw Mills, together
with Messrs. Holmes and Byers of the
Forestry  Department.     It  had   been
pointed out that the city would oppose
i the  granting of foreshore  rights at
j the point in question and Mr. Bridges
I had withdrawn his  application.   Mr.
: MacDonald also reported that the Vic-
! toria  Chamber  of  Commerce   has   a
j campaign   to   continue   the   road   to
i Buttles   Lake  from   Campbell   River.
; The Industrial development at Catnp-
! bell River would probably raise this
! lake   some   fifty   feet,   which   might
spoil the fishing there.   Other lakes
! within reach of Courtenay, those at
j the   headwaters   of   Brown's   River,
were to be stocked with fish, however. I
! Word to this effect had recently been I
i received by the city from Mr. Mother-1
well of the Fisheries Department.
|    The chairman, Mr. Eadle, reminded
the  members  that the next  regular
meeting of the board would be the
annual  meeting and  suggested  that
someone  be  Invited  to  address  the
Board on that occasion.   After some
discussion   it   was   decided   to  invite
Mr. P. P. Harrison, M.L.A., and tho
annual   meeting   is  to be  combined
with a social supper and evening to
be arranged by a committee composed
of   Messrs.   MacDonald,   Smlllie   and
The farmers were less successful in
a plan sponsored by the agricultural
committee through J. R. Colley, ot*
Kamloops, by which they would be
enabled to shoot deer or trap fur-
bearing animals destroying crops
without reporting to game wardens.
At present a report to game wardens
is necessary and the House decided
to retain this arrangement.
After lengthy discussion it was decided to fix the fishermen's fee for
non-residents of the Province for $1
a day up to ten days. A fee of $10
will allow a non-resident to fish during the entire season. Formerly
there was a flat seasonal fee of $10
with no provision for a dally fee with
the result that transients did not fish,
members explained.
Kind-hearted people who leave
young kittens In the woods Instead
of destroying them at birth are creating a serious menace to game, R.
H. Pooley, Opposition Leader, stated
when a Game Act amendment prohibiting the release ot cats in this
way was under discussion. .Mr.
Pooley stated that on the Malahat
Highway outside ot Victoria mulli-
tudes of wild cats roamed the woods
killing game birds.

When a father picks a husband out
for his daughter, trouble is sure to
begin. That occurrence began a
great deal of trouble ln the life of
Ferule Schmidt, heroine of "It Must
Be Love," in which Colleen Moore is
starred at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre, Friday
and Saturday, March 11 and 12.
Pop Schmidt, played by Jean Her-
sholt, was an old-style German-
American, and he couldn't see why
his daughter didn't, like the man of
his choice.
This suitor happened to be the
sausage manufacturer from whom
Pop bought his sausages for the delicatessen business he ran; and he
couldn't see why business shouldn't
be coupled with love.

1 ally worth while picture at the Gaiety
Theatre where "The Night Cry," star-
I ring Rln-Tln-TIn will be shown on
1 Friday and Saturday, March 11 and 12.
This Warner Bros. Classic of the
Screen was directed by Herman Ray-
maker, and he Is to be heartily coin-
mended for his genius ln getting Rln
across so effectively.
Rln-Tin-TIn plays a shepherd dog
who ls accused of plundering a flock
ot sheep, and who alone knows that
a condor, a huge bird of prey, is tbe
killer. In vain he pursues the vulture until finally his owners consent
to having him shot. Luckily, however, he rescues their baby trom the
condor, clears his good name, and
saves tbe flocks from further disaster.
As an added attraction the management of the Gaiety Theatre has procured the services of Miss Gwen Noel,
who will give an exhibition of toe
dancing between shows.

Few experiences of motion picture
people in trying circumstances can
compare with those endured by members of the "Shipwrecked" company
during the Aiming of the remarkable
storm scenes shown In that production. Adrift for many hours In a hurricane-tossed sea, the cast, director,
technical and camera staff were In
the gravest danger.
Seena Owen, Joseph Schlldkraut,
Clarence Burton, Matthew Betz and
other players, under the direction of
Joseph Henaberry, worked bravely
even when the ship upon which they
were, passengers, threatened to founder. These remarkable storm scenes
are finely shown In "Shipwrecked,"
which will be on view at the Ilo-Ilo
theatre next Monday. From efery
standpoint "Shipwrecked" is a remarkable achievement.

of A. S. M. Hutchinson's famous novel

allowed for some unknown reason.

Gllliland and Dobbyn, the West Coast
fullbacks, were booting the pigskin
as far aB they could over the sidelines in order to waste time. After
a scramble in front of Alberni's goal,
with the goalie drawn out, Jackson
sent in a hard shot which Gllliland
caught on the goal line. Jones gave
a penalty and Marshall kicked, sending a hot shot toward the left upper
corner, but that was as far as It advanced for Perry pushed the ball out

was cleared and shortly after thc
whistle blew for full time, ending one
of the most stiffly contested games
between these two teams.
For West Coast Perry In goal and
Gllliland at left back were the outstanding players. Marshall and Weir
did good work for the Intermediates.
start West Coast began their kick and
rush game, keeping the ball swinging
from   wing   to   Winy.     This   worked
very well and W|est Coast had a decided advantage in the play for the
Ilrst twenty minutes, giving Stewart,
the visiting custodian, many anxious
moments and several close*shots.   At
this stage of the game the visitors
had had their first lesson lu walking

snapped up only to see the star goalie
of West Coast pull off brilliant saves.!
There were many skirmishes In front
of   the   Alberni   goal,   but   on   each
occasion, after the mud had stopped
flying, Perry would emerge with the
ball.   The flrst half ended with both
teams even in play and neither being I

After the Interval West Coast started out with the same burst of speed
as in the flrst half, but with better
results.     After    fifteen    minutes    of

Paralleling the Introduction of new
car models for 1927, the Automobile
Club ot British Columbia, In a statement issued recently by Its service
bureau, urged the Importance of a
larger proportion et model motorists
for 1927.
A uniformly progressive molordom
demands that the motorist's qualifications keep pace with the car he drives
lt Is pointed out by the club bureau,
or he will be at the wheel of a car
which has Improved far beyond his
capabilities to meet the new situation in motoring.
The Automobile Club sounded a
warning that advanced Ideas of traffic regulation and uniformity ln driving customs are not mnre important
than the development of responsibility
on tbe part of thc Individual user of
thc highway,
"We know now," the statement
reads, "that the human equation Is
present In the majority of accidents,
and ln these cases. It Is the presence
of the 'minus' that causes the trouble.
We need a 1927 model motorist as
much as we need model cars; the
manufacturer has already dona more
lo make his car perfect than the
driver hns to mnke his driving 100
per cent efficient.
"We have ample proof of this hi the
fact that relatively few members of
our club ure Involved In accidents.
Wo attribute Ihis not so much to the
safety education conducted by our
club as to the fact lhat our members
constitute by and nt large a highly
intelligent group."
"More Intelligent driving" tho Automobile Club of British Columbia believes, is one of our greatest needs.
The 1927 motorist should drive Ills
car at more Intelligent variations of
speed than his 1926 predecessor, who
often mistook Hafety devices for a
licence to Ignore all possibility of disaster. He will recognize as a fact
that a car travelling fifty miles per
hour will hit so much harder and do
so much more damage than one goin.;
twenty-live. And he will also recognize tha* stopping distances, even
with four-wheel brakes, are not In
direct proportion to the speed at
which the car Is travelling.
"Altogether," the club statement
concludes, "thc 1927 motorist should
be head and shoulders above his predecessors. Offered tbe further advantages of safer cars, there is no
reason why he should uot be able to
make real headway In  accident  pre

LONDON, March 7.—Indictments
against the Cory Colliery, of Cardiff,
and three officials of the Ogmore
State Power Company on the charge
ot manslaughter, were quashed at the
Glamorgan assize today.     The case,
which Is one of the most'extraordinary within recent years, arose out of
the electrocution of a pit bby. named
Brynmer John, who came Into contact with an electrified wire fence at
defendant's power station during the
coal strike last year. The fence had
been electrified to stop raids on the
coal supply of the company. The
i boy had crawled under the fence
! after a dog and on returning stumbled*,

We feel that readers of this paper
should be made aware of the Incapabilities of the two Cumberland men
who volunteered to render flrst aid
at the recent badminton tournaments
at Royston. After being equipped
with bandages, slings, splints, smelling salts, crutches, batteries for reviving nervous cases, embalming fluid
and all the other appurtenances of
flrst aid work, these two gentlemen
(?) calmly sat back with their kit
and absolutely refused to assist the
Injured, maimed and dying In nny
way, shape or form. We know of one
lnstunce where a player fell prostrate
before one of theso flrst aid men and
he deliberately turned his back, and
then, to climax It, neither of them
turned out on Thursday at all. We
feel that whatever flrst aid ccrtlfcates
(If any) that these men hold, should
be taken from them at once, pronto.
