j hers ofthe Cumlierland Literary and

was unanimously resolved to proceed
with the erection of a bowling green

! Owing to the warm weather it was
; some time before,he necessary ijuor-
I um could be formed, but after walt-
, ing around for almost three-quarters
j of au hour, the required number turu-
| ed up.
I Mr, A, J. Taylor president of the
Athletic club was in the chair and outlined the proposition to the meeting.
The site of the proposed bowling
green is the old saw mill ground, close
to no. ti mine and which is admirably
spited for the erection ofa green . !i
Is dose to the club premises and
would become a part and parcel of
i the activities of Ihe Athletic club. The
president estimated that the sum in
the neighborhood of $1500 would he
required to pul the green in operating
condition and staled that sum could
[easily he raised. A member present
wanted to know if it was intended to
limit membership to the howling
green to members of the Athletic club.
Mr, Taylor said It was fl matter which
would have to be taken up by. the ex-
j ecutive committee. One of the members present suggested that the club
take in anybody and charge a fee accordingly . He Instanced the Xanainio
dub in whic]] anyone can join bu:
anyone not employees had to pay a
sum of ?fl or $10 for the season. It
was felt by tho meeting thai outsider.;
should hi> allowed to Join as the game
has become very popular on the Island during the last few years. Those
responsible for the forming ofa bowling green locally are very enthusiastic and predict a bright future for

Good Boxing And
Wrestling Program
At Bowser Hall
McLaughlin, Canadian Champion
Wrestler Gives Wonderful
A number of Cumberlanders journeyed to Anderson's hall, Bowser on
Saturday night last to witness the
boxing and wrestling, matches promoted by .Mr. Anderson and were well
repaid for tlieir trouble. The wrestling match between Jack McLaughlin
and Jack Strong was a magaillcent
affair. Both men are undoubtedly
clever, and whilst Strong was a few
pounds heavier thnn McLaughlin, the
latter was very fast and must be related to a "wild-cat". The first fall
) went to McLaughlin the Canadian
Champion after Is minutes of really
good wressllng. dean and last. After
ten minutes interval the wrestler.-,
again got ins,o action, McLaughlin
gaining the second fall after 26 minutes. The match was one of the best
seen locally for many a year.
The boxing bouts were also good
the Ilrst being a good boI to between
Ned llryile of Albertll and Jock Mc-
Lean  Of Bowser, the litter gelling a
| lucky call over his clever opponent.

Two Others Seriously Injured;
Funeral of Unfortunate Robert Thomson Took Place on
Thursday Afternoon.
Robert Thomson, son of Mr. nnd
Mrs. Harry Thomson, of Cuiliberland
who was within a lew days of liis
tweniy-sevcnih birthday met death on
Monday afternoon whilst following bis
occupation as n rigglng-s linger nt th"
Deep Hay camp ofthe Canadian Robert licit lar Company. From reports
received from the oamp, the three men
were .standing in front of the "cold
deck" of logs hich were being hauled
across a gully by a donkey operated
from the railroad track some J6011
feet away. Whether there wasa misunderstanding in the signals or not
could not be ascertained but It is reported that Instead of the log going
straight ahead it swung round and
caught Thomson and the other two
men who were working in the gang.
Thomson received terrible Injuries
and died whilst being taken oul to tiie
road. The other injured men are
Frank Kruly. Hiokerman and Fred
Hrown, both of Nanaimo. Knaly wn3
very badly injured, his pelvis being
broken Into pieces and he is -also suffering   from   other   internal   injuries.
On Sunday evening, June Kith, at
7.;tu p.m. In Holy Trinity Church there
will he dedicated a picture given by
the parents in memory of tbelr son,
j Xorlo Hiro.-e, in addition to the picture new lights havt. also been installed iu the porch. The picture is
a copy of ihe painting by Krnest G.
Carlos entitled "The Pathfinder", The
original hangs in Hoy Scout headquarters in London It depicts a
Scout standing at a table, upon which
a map Is placed. The boy is evidently
working for the Pathfinders Hftdgq
one of four badges which has to bc
gained before he can become a King's
Scout. From the look In the lad's
face he is evidently puzzling ovor
something, for the Pathfinder's Badge
Is not an easy one to gain. Behind the
Scout, with hand resting on his shoulder, is the figure of the Christ. The
picture makes a most suitable memorial, as Norlo was one of the Ilrst
boys to join the Holy Trinity Troop
and Sunday School.
Underneath the picture will hang
the worded memorial designed by Mr.
W. A. Owen which reads: "To the
Glory of God and in loving memory
of Norlo Hlrose, Scout of the First
Cumberland (Holy Trinity) TrooP and
one of ihe first Japanese boys to join
the Church Sunday School. He passed on Into thc presence of "The Pathfinder" on the third day of April. 1920,
aged 16," "I am the Way. the Truth,
and tin; Life". On the top corners is
tbe Scout buttonhole badge and on
the lower corners ,the Pathfinder's
Badge, On either side Is a sword
symbolical of 'The Sord of the Spirit
which Is thp Word of God."
It ls expected thot a number of Japanese and parents will attend this
service, and any others who knew
Xorlo will be welcome.

partment of Education is steadily working. Such
an ideal, as is the case with every high ideal, may
bc impossible ot complete attainment, but it is
none the less worth striving tor. The main sale-
guard for permanency and efficiency in any democracy lies in the provision whch it maKes t'or
the education of its citizens, young and old, and
already our province has done much in this direction. For the pro\ ichng ol trained and competent
leadership our university Has been established;

well-qualified teacher will be found at work. But

school goes, this has already been done, and for
the past ten years courses of instruction have been
provided by the Department and given by correspondence to several hundrd boys and girls living
beyond the reach of the public or elementary
The last step towards the realization of the ideal
of educational service to the people is the inauguration of correspondence instruction in high
school courses. These courses, which will include
the full preparation of students for Junior Matriculation and Entrance to Normal School, will also
provide for instruction in commercial subjects as
outlined in the official programme of studies for
the Province. Students entering upon the correspondence courses are permitted to choose certain subjects quite as freely as if attending one
of our city high schools. Registration will begin
o nAugust 15, L929, and the first courses will be
mailed out to students whose applications are accepted as soon as possible alter that date. Application may be made at any time after the 1st
day of August and must be made on a form which
will be sent on request. Full instructions and all
necessary information will be supplied with the
application forms.

H.M.S. Colombo Visit
I Editor Cumberland Islander:
Tho following news Item in the Nanaimo Free Press of Monday, interest
ed me very much,
"After a four-day stay in Nanaimo,
H.M.S. Colombo left at i).30 this morn- j
ing for Ladysmith where the cruiser!
will remain until Thursday. Citizens;
of Ladysmith have arranged a most!
elaborate program for the eitertain-
ment ot the warship during its stay
In that port."
As the Colombo will be in the har-l
bor at Comox for the month of July.'
I am led to ask "what arrangements j
are being made for the entertainment
of the navy boys when thoy visit
Cumberland." Citizens of Ladysmith
have arranged a most elaborate programme for the entertainment of the
warship during its stay hi thai port
Surely what Ladysmith can tlo, Cumberland can do. Personally i would
not like to see the same treatment
meted out to the navy hoys of the Colombo as was ihe ease last year on
the occasion ofthe visit of H.M.S. Durban. Cumberland was 'hf only city
on the Island falling to entertain the
navy last year, If memory serves me
correctly I think a few members of
the Cumlierland Cricket Club
vassed some ofthe townspeople for
funds lo enable the cricketers to give
the boys in blue some sort of enter
tainment . Surely li is not up to any
club in have to take such responsibility, lam tnlii the cricketers went in
debt over it all and have only just
managed to pay the debt oft". Would
it not be possible for a committee to
he formed, headed by the Mayor and
council to make arrangements for
some sort, of entertainment during the
stay of the Colombo at Comox Harbor?
The bout will arrive on July the otii
and will stay for one month, leaving
about the 30th o rSlst, and 1 think l:
might be a good plan to sel aside a
certain portion of the lime, for the entertainment of the navy, and let that
time be slogaiied "Cumberland for tho
