Effort To Be Made To
Put Coal Industry
On It's_Feet Again
Action   in   the   Matter   to   Be
Victoria—Hon. W. A. .McKenzie
Minister of Mines, has set out to re
place oil-burning equipment Insofar
as possible wilh coal burners in government buildings of all sorts. New
public buildings hereafter ure to be
equipped with coal consuming plains,
and many existing Installations arc
due for reconversion. British Columbia is a conl producing province. Aa
yet it does not produce fuel-oil.
Action In this mutter Is to bo immediate.
Action also Is being taken on the
nepnirt lof Waiter Leek, consulting
engineer, whose Investigation nud experiments as to treatment of coal byproducts have been so satisfactory
•that he has been able lo convince the
Minister that (properly used) British
Columbia coal can meet fuel-oil competition both ns to efficiency nnd
cheapness with pulverized conl.
Plants for scientilic treatment of
bituminous coal are to be erected to
produce the pulverized product, whicli
large fuel consumers are assured
(with the automatic stoking and burning equipment now available) will he
found cheaper, safer and more satisfactory In every wny than fuel-oil.
The objective of the government In
taking special measures to hasten
general use of the new fuel Is to put
the languishing colliery industry on
Its feet again.

School Trustees Hear Report Of
Mrs. Banks, Delegate to Convention
The regular meeting of the Cumberland Board ot School Trustees was
held in the school ou Thursday even-
Ing. ■
The usual business was discussed
and an expense report was submitted
to the Board and proved to be very
satisfactory. It was noted In the re-1
port that (lie Domestic Science and
.Manual Training classes had Incurred
very little expense and were practically self-supporting.
Mr. Apps' report was read and although a number of applications from
different persons have been received
It Is felt that IT the public do not
make a more hearty response, the only
subjects which bo advisable to teach ]
lu the Night School clusses will he j
band and instrumental music. Mr. ]
Murray stated that it is expected that1
thirty pupils will be enrolled for this
week before tiie classes begin. At Mr.
Murray'B request it was moved that
two nights a week be allotted for the
teaching of music in the school, lt
Is felt that the pupils will derive more
benefit from the teaching if this plan
is adopted. The Hoard moved that the
boys may be allowed to have a sale
of articles made in their manual
training classes to help make the
niglit school self-supporting.
Mrs. Banks, Cumberland delegate
to the annual convention of School
Trustees held at Penticton, submitted
her report of the convention to the
board. The report was accepted as
read and the meeting was adjourned.
Mrs. Bunks' report follows:
The B.C. School Trustees' Convention was held at Penticton on September 24th. 25th and 26th. Convention
Sessions were held in the School
Auditorium, a splendid room with a
seating capacity for about three hundred people. Penticton is a rural
municipal school and has three splendid school buildings. The Public School
has nu enrollment of about 525 pupils. Junior High 200, und High School
160, taking care of nbout 900 children
with a staff of 22 teachers. They
have every modern convenience In
their buildings and a well equipped
gymnasium, manual training and
home economics rooms. Our home
economics, 1 am delighted to say,
compare most favorably with theirs,
indeed but an electric BtoVe and more
machines and seating capacity. Their
manual training room is wonderful
and we have a long way to go yet in
that direction. The scliool grounds
nnd gardens are enclosed with stone
hedges in most artistic design and
the gardens nre beautiful, mostly
composed of ornamental shrubs and
rose bushes. The pride of pupils,
teachers and trustees, wns a flag, carefully encased in a glass case and
mounted in the front hall. This had
been presented by the citizens of Penticton to some members of the staff
when tbey went to the war, nnd had
heen carled through Mons. aud many
other engagements, and brought back
to Penticton scarred and blood stained and hung in the Public School. The
school also contains a teachers comfortable sitting room. (I travelled to
Penticton with Mrs. Carwithen of
Tsolum Consolidated and Mrs. Hanna
of Port Alberni.)
The first session opened at 9:30
a.m. with 113 delegates. 5 inspectors
and 12 visitors enrolled (by visitors
I mean Invited representatives of
P.T.A., Teachers Federation and other
organizations. Each session saw new
members arrive, as many delegates
do not stny during tbe entire convention. <l might add that Penticton
during these three days was more
than filled with visitors, for besides
trustees, a Ministerial Conference of
the OkaiinKim United Church was in
session about one block from the
school and a circus was In full swing
fnr Ihree days.)
The convention opened with "O
Canada", some singing Buchnn and
others Weir version. Addresses followed by Ileevn Klrkpatrick and It. S-
Wilton,    School    Board    Chairman.
These were replied lo by Vice-President I-\ V. Hobbs, of Vlctorln. and followed by the President .11. Manning,
ol' Revelstoke. address. Stnndin.;
committees were appointed und tha
morning session closed.
At 2:30 p.m. we agnln were called
to order. During the noon recess 1
hnd renewed acquaintance With many
trustees whom 1 remembered nnd mot
from year to year, and also introduced' my lady friends around so tbat
Ihey would feel at home and consult
with each other on various problems
of School Trustees' work. During this
session, reports of credential, executive and secretary-treasurer reports
were received and the repot on reso-
lutlons of 1927 convention were received  nnd  discussed.
Resolutions were then taken up in
earnest and ns we receive a full and
concise printed report of each discussion on all resolutions, T feel It Is
hardly necessary to report on them
nil. No. 2 submitted by Comox Valley
was moved hy Carwithen. I had consented  to 2nd  same,  but  as  Prince
George Trustee, Mr. Lambert, whose
board it evidently affected hastily
arose and did so and It carried. No. 7
submitted by Courtenay, was most
adversely discussed by Mr. Woodward
of Pt. Grey and lost by large majority. No. 9 was then submitted and
this hud very few supporters. Somo
trustees argued, why should trustees
ask for duties to be thrust on teachers
Which even ministers and parents did
not carry out for their children. A
general feeling seemed to be that a
great many teachers were not just
qualified to teach the Bible, and that
teachers at the present time were allowed to open school by the prayer
and the school law at present says
the highest morality shall be inculcated. This means teachers should
be strictly moral and their duties demand them to punish idleness, profanity, falsehood, deceit and fighting.
This was considered by many trustees
as all that could be expected of teachers. Some Bible stories and passages of scripture are included In
school readers at present. No objec-
ton whatever against Bible reading In
the school was raised but that no
further attempt be made to change
the school law as now stands. Others
felt, that if a committee of .Ministers
could not come to an agreement on
what passages of scripture should be
read In school, it was too much to
expect the Department of Education
to undertake same.
No. 2—Submitted by Comox Valley
Trustees' Association — "Resolved,
that the Annual Meeting be called to
order at 8 o'clock instead of 7 o'clock
iu rural districts, and that time of
nominating aud voting of officers be
altered  accordingly."
No, 7—Submitted by Courtenay—
"That Section 133 (b) be amended by
including the following: That when
a Board or School Trustees are unanimous In their findings leading to a
teacher's dismissal, no appeal from
their decision shall be allowed."
No, 9 —Submitted by North Vancouver—"That the Department of Education be asked to authorize and
prescribe Bible Reading for the public schools of the Province."
Resolution No. 10 requested the Educational Department to have some
system drafted on British or Canadian lines for educational tests, Instead of using tests made from forms
compiled and printed in the U.S.A..
Prince George asked that the courses
of study and the presentation thereof
be re-arranged witli a view to reducing to the minimum the amount of pupils' homework and that physical
training and hygiene be given due
place in the curriculum of both elementary and high school. This resj-

Under the auspices of the P.T.A. an
Interesting ceremony was enacted in
the Anglican Hall on Friday venlng
when Mr. Frank Partridge presented
Miss Nina Shields with the gold medal
donated by the P.T.A. for the pupil
who made the highest marks In the
Entrance examination. Miss Shields
won this honor making 423 marks,
while the highest marks made ln the
Province were 447. Mr. Geo. Apps
occupied the chair at the meeting and
Ml*. A. McKinnon presented the successful  pupils  with  their certificates.
Mr. Apps in speaking said that there
had been a noticeable decrease iu Interest shown iu P.T.A. during the past
year and he expressed the hope that
this organization would not. be like a
great mnny others which bail heen
formed In Cumberland in the past and
had not survived for long. He said
that the school hoard was always
ready to provide everything necessary
which wonld assist in fhe work of
the school and he pointed out that as
yet the P.T.A, had not beon asked to
provide materials for the scliool.
P.T.A. Associations In different towns
had bought pianos, books and other
things beneficial to the school. Mr,
Apps said he felt thnt the P.T.A. win
primarily an organization for influencing tlie school nnd home '11111 that
he wns not advocnttng that tbey should
provide marerlals for the school.
When speukliiR of the recent examinations, he praised the work of
Mr. Murray and tho othor members
of ihe staff. Ho spoke of the Entrance Class of 1927-2S and declared
that they had been good pupil*
throuRhoui their school eareor, not
only by doing their work well hut by
setting an example to those ln the
lower classes by the splendid qualities which wero depicted in tho character.
It was also noted that although
Cumberland was not successful in
obtaining a district medal it was not
because the pupils were without the
ability to do so. but because Cumberland has only a remote chance when
competing In a lnrge district which
contains large schools with more ad-
Popular    Mine    Superintendent;
Wins Own Trophy
Mr. Thomas Graham has many notable achievements to his credit during his many years sporting activities.
but we believe he is more jubilant
over winning the trophy, donated by
himself ,for competition among the
members of the Courtenay Golf Club.
Mr. Graham has been in the finals
before, but never managed to be
crowned champion, until last .Sunday.
His win wus a most popular one and
he wus warmly congratulated by his
opponent and by his many friends who
had gathered together at the club
house on completion of the matcli. Mr.
Jimmy Aston put up a great fight in
an efl'ort to capture the coveted cud
but at the lSlh when a halt wus called
for lunch the gume was all square.
Commencing the second 18 all square,
the Cumberland man soon took the
lead and ou the 34th made lt in four
which gave him a 3 and 2 margin.

Protagonists of a Canadian flag, however, may look to
