Canadian National Commitee
for Mental Hygiene in
Notable Address
Owing to many counter attractions
the "attendance at the dinner of the
Comox District Canadian Club, held
at the Union Hotel on Friday night
last, was a very slim one. Had the
members ot the club been aware of
the excellence of tlie address to be de
llvered by Mr. D. M. LeBourdals, a
record number would have been on
hand. The speaker, quite a young
man, has a world of experience: ex-
newspaper man, ex-logger, and ex-
seaman, Mr. LeBourdals has had an
experience which his talk by no means
belles. In his work with the National Committee for Mental Hygiene
he ls -thorougly familiar. He understands It and loves lt and was quite
at home throughout a very lengthy
address, and on Its completion was
asked a number of question which he
answered in a very lucid manner.
The address was brightened considerably by tbe showing of a number
ot slides and these did much to help
the audience grasp the full significance of the problem which ls confronting the nation today ln the care
of the Insane antl mentally deficient.
Wilh respect to the prevention and
cure of insanity, the speaker stressed
the importance of research and advocated the establishment of a l'hyso-
patlilc Hospital at Vancouver for the
early treatment of persons threatened
with a mental break-down.
The speaker quoted figures to show
the great cost of mnintaluence. Taking the cost of the adminlstraion of
Juslce a $1,400,000 a year, and assuming only 10 per cent to be chargeable
to mentally deficient persons, there
was an additional $140,000 a year,
bringing the total cost of mental deficiency to |279,000.
If that amount of money, said LeBourdals, was spent with a view to
*he proper training of the mentally
deficient, the result would be that a
large number of these individuals
would be fitted to maintain themselves
ta' the community, wholly or ln part.
Mr. LeBourdals paid a glowing tribute to the work of the British Columbia Royal Commission on Mental Hygiene, of which Mr. P. P. Harrison,
the local member of parliament is a
member, and which has just made its

Father-Son
Feast Largely
Attended
Rev.   H.   Nixon   of   Nahaimo
Speaks to the Boys
Almost a hundred people were present at the father and son banquet
which was held last Friday evening lu
the United Church hall. The banquet
was in connection with tbe C.S.E.T.
work that ls being carried on by the
Cumberland United Curch.
A bswntiful snpper had bten provided by the ladles, and many excellent toasts were proposed by the boys.
Master Cyril Davis making an efficient
chairman.
Rev. H. Nixon of the First United
Church, Nanaimo, the speaker of the
evening, gave an Inspiring and Interesting address to the boys, the substance of his speech being as follows:
"I am happy to be with you tbls evening and am delighted to find so
large a gathering. First of all let me
convey to you the good wishes of the
Victoria Presfoyteiry. Ait the fltes-
bytery It was announced that the
Cumberland United Church ls now
self-supporting, through this we can
easily see the advantage of having a
United Curch, as lt -would have been
impossible for both a Methodist and
a Presbyterian Curch ln Cumberland
to be self suportlng. We are rapidly
getting away from the time when one
pased a Presbyterian Church at one
corner ot the block and heard the
congregation singing "Shall there be
any stars In my crown?" and on
reaching a Methodist curch at the
next corner heard- the people singing
"No not one, no not one."
A father and son banquet Is the
means of bringing the father and son
closer together. The greatest thing
to be considered today le, "What Is
going on In the hearts of our boya?'i
Many believe they should not be
even asked to take charge of a group
of boys, or spend a short period on
Sunday afternoon, teaching at Sunday
school. They say, "Why ahould I
waste my time In teaching the children of others who are possibly spending the afternoon tn their cars, I have
no right to do it." They certainly are
not compelled to do this but in remembering the act of Sutherland on
the coast of Scotland, who of his own
accord rescued four unknown and
drowning persons and was himself
drowned ln his effort to rescue the
fifth: Cox, the young medical student
who gave his body for the testing out
of the X-ray, and ln doing so sacrificed his life.Whose last words were "I
would suffer all over again If lt would
I only benefit poor suffering humanity."
Horatlus, who gave his life in the
holding of a bridge: we can ask our-
I selves had they any right to do this?
No, they were not compelled to do all
this but were willing to suffer and
perhaps die In the Interests of humanity. So are our Sunday school tea-

Imperial Club
Badminton Players
Lost AM>arksville
Low Ceiling of Parksville Club
Great Handicap to Locals
The local, players members of the
Imperial Badminton Club, who went
to Parksville on Saturday last, returned badly defeated. ..The Imperial
club, however, was not at full strength
several of the players being under the
impression that badminton for them
for this season ihad finished with the
playing of the tournament held recently at Royston, had hung up their
rackets for the time being, consequently the secretary had a hard time
getting a team together, Parksvllle
asked for four ladles and four gentlemen to make the trip, but only three
of each could make the journey, Messrs. H. Stewart, F. R. Shenstone and
Capt. Ash and Mrs. Falrbalrn, Miss
Falrbalrn.and Miss Wood.
Parksvllle bad no difficulty ln winning most of the matches, as the
visitors were completely at sea tin the
low-ceillnged hall. Similarly Royston
had the advantage when Parksville
visited here. Ot the 8 matches played
the home club won 6 and Royston won
2, wthlle the game score was 12 for
Parksvllle and 7 for Royston. Complete scores, Parksvllle players mentioned flrst were as follows:
Molliet and Mrs. Bourke defeated
Ash and Mrs. Fatrbalrn, 15-7, 15-3.
Thwaltes and Miss Park defeated
Stewart and Miss Wood, 16-6, 10-15,
15-12.    '
Weld and Mrs. Forbes defeated
Shenstone. and Miss Falrbalrn,-15-10,

Courtenay Wins
Semi-Final For
Thompson Cup
With the Aid of a Gift of Four
Points, Courtenay Noses
Out Locals
Last Tuesday evening the semi-final
of the Inland series for the Thompson
Cup, emblematic of the B. C. basketball championship for High School
girls was played at Cumberland ln
the Band Hall. The opposing teams
were Cumberland and Courtenay girls.
Before the game started referee Stewart announced that as it was an Important game, the ball would be considered out of bounds on striking the
end walls, and that the game would
be played strictly according to rules.
The shooting areas were marked by
a white square painted directly back
of the baskets, In place of the usual
areas which project out from the wall
some two feet. The writer still contends that lt ls Impossible to play the
end walls ln the local hall without
spoiling the game. The game -turned
out to be prlnciply whistle and throw
ins and even then the referee passed
up many Instances that had all the
earmarks of personal fouls. Courtenay's first two fleld baskets should
have been disallowed as the ball was
out of bounds before dropping Into
'the basket. The referee was wholly
unaware of this, for, from his position on the floor it looked es though
the ball did not touch the wall at all,
but the fans sitting at an angle to
the, basket could see quite easily, and
were unaninmous ln the opinion that
the points should be disallowed—but
they were'nt— it cost Cumberland the
game as the final score was 15-12 ln
Courtenay's favor. If the end walls
must be played, why not have basket
referees at each end of the hall ln
edition to the referee, especially tor
ta Important game such as this?
Play started at 7:30 with the Cumberland Public school opposing thc
Courtenay Public school. The Cumberland lads showed their, heels to
their friends from the fanning centre
by the score of 24-6. There are some
promising young players amongst the
teams but they flrst must learn to

St Patrick's
Tea Successful
Stalls and Tables Attractively
Decorated with Shamrocks
and Irish Flags
Dainty booths trimmed with green
clay pipes and Irish Flags greeted
the eye on entering Cumberland Public school Wednesday afternoon when
a St. Patrick's tea was being held by
the teachers and pupils ln aid of their
prospective tennis court. The candy
had been arranged ln fancy boxes
decorated with shamrocks —the work
of the pupils of Orade III and IV and
within half an hour the signs "sold
out" went up. The home cooking
table was laden with good things and
vied with the candy stall ln -returns.
Some fifteen tea tables were scattered
about the upper Ihallls. The little
misses serving wore their domestic
science ouflts and each head-Jband
bore a shamrock. Pots ot tbe same
decorated the tables. While tea was
being served a musical programme
by girls and boys ot the public school
was greatly enjoyed. Judging trom
the generous contributions to the
tables and the large number who attended, the parents of Cumberland
seem to appreciate what the teachers
are doing to encourage clean sport ln
our midst. As a very small percentage of the staff play tennis or take any
interest In the game apart from the
little help they may give the pupils,
their efforts of Wednesday afternoon
are greatly to be commended.
Mr. E. T. Searle, of Union Bay very
kindly took the service at Holy Trinity Church on Sunday evening last,
relieving the Vicar, the Rev. E. O.
Robathan, who has been indisposed
for the past two weeks. His many
friends, however, will be glad to know

$250 Damage
•   At Cafe Fire
Strand  Cafe,  Courtenay,  Had
Small Blaze Last Night
Prompt work on the part of the
Courtenay Volunteer Fire Department
'With the new chemical truck, prevented what might easily have been a very
disastrous fire. A spark from the
stove Hn the kitchen, where the lire
started was responsible for the damage which lt ls roughly estimated will
total about $260.00. The call was
turned ln to tbe fire department about
ten minutes to eight, tine fire fighters
making a queck turnout. The blaze
was soon under control, the Cafe opening up for business again at ten
o'clock the same night. The business
is operated by Messrs. J. Wilcock and
Sadler, the building being owned by
Mrs. Geldt.
Bail Set at$3,000.00
A Bevan Chinaman, Twee Gong,
appeared before the magistrate this
week, charged with having opium in
his possession. He pleaded "not guilty" and was remanded for one week,
ball being set at $3,000. The local
district police had been "tipped off,"
according to reports, to the effect that
a shipment of vegetables was en route,
addressed to the accused and containing some tins of opium.
The shipment was Intercepted and
sure enough, embedded in amongst
the cauliflower were three heat- pound
tins and a smaller tin of the sleepspro-
ducer. Twee Gong was arrested and
and charged as stated.
The tea held on Wednesday of this
week by the teachers and scholars
of the local schools netted the very
grand sum of $100.00 which it is intended to devote to the erection of the
Cement Tennis Court.
A special meeting of the Hospital
Women's Auxiliary was held at the
home of Mrs. Bryan on Thursday afternoon. The meeting was called to
make arrangements for the Hospjital
dance which Is to be held on April 20.

Dear Slrs:-
At the last regular meeting of the
Board of Management of the Cumberland General Hospital, held on the
9th inst. the matter of the City Hob-
pltal Grant, under section 31 of the

Dear Slr:-
Ro: Purchase of Public I'tllltles.
I beg to acknowledge your letter ol
tho 28th of February last In which
you ask me whether I intend to act
on behalf of the Cumberland Electric
Lighting Company Limited and the
Cumberland Union Water Works Company Limited or on behalf of the City
of Cumberland.
I am quite at a loss to understand
why you should find it necessary to
write to me in a way which suggests
that It Is my duty to dhoose between
acting for the City or for the Companies In question.
I am equally at a loss to comprehend why the local newspapers should
quote the City Council as stating ln
effect that It was necessary to ascertain definitely from myself as to
which party I intended to represent
In this matter. The Press reports
may lead one to believe that the City
had received from me an Indefinite
or evasive answer or statement touching the question—for whom I would
act—wheras, as a matter of fact I
have never been approached by tho
City ln this connection.
Judging from the letter and from
the Press reports thc City Council Is
under the Impression that I am retained by the City nnd by the two
Companies named, In such a way and

Gasoline With Ticket
No. 64
At the second of the series of "500"
drives held in the Anglican Hall on
Friday evening lust, Mr. J. D. Sommerville held ticket No. 04 which entitles him to 30 gallons of gasoline
donated by Harllng & Ledlngham, of
Cumberland. In point of numbere attending the "600" drive held last iweek
end, it was not a success, but for a
right Jolly time it was vited as such.
The Byng Boys' orchestra was at Its
best and played numerous encores,
one of the latest radio hits being played which met with a great deal of favorable comment.
Prize winners In the card games

her very generous gift of the ladles'
first prize for tlie drive of Friday last.
Both Basketball
Teams Victorious
High School Boys in Great Form
to Defeat Port Alberni
52 Points to 12
The High School teams did what
mehoMa»ti.e ia$^~&isj:*
day last, when noth the boyB and girls
were victorious In their games. In
previous games either the boys or
girls have lost and had to be content
with that, but on Friday they made a
clean Bweep against the West Coasters. A capacity crowd was on hand,
man fans making the trip trom Port
Alberni.
In the preliminary game the Cumberland and Courtenay Public School
boys put up a fast but somewhat
rough forty minutes, Cumberland taking honors by the score of 17-13.
The feature game of the night was
next when the Port Alberni boys and
local boys took tho floor. The locals
had been smarting under the decisive
defeat of 42-26 handed out to tbem by
the same' team last week end and were
all set to see that It didn't happen
again. When the smoke of battle had
cleared away Uie score stood 62-12
ln the locals favor and another vow
fulfilled. It was apparent that the
Port boys were not at home In the
Band Hall as they couldn't find suf-
fliclent room to show their stuff. Their
style ls very neat and they might
have eventually hit their stride but
the machine like combination and
close checking of the local guards
prevented this from happening. The
game was fast and clean, and although Cumberland had more shots
at tbe baskot and the score orer-
whelming, the game didn't appear ono
sided. Marinelli nt centre for tho
locals was the star of the game, working ln complete understanding with
N. Hill, they brought the ball up the
floor times Innumerable, with the result tbat the final pass to ono ot the
forwards nearly always carried two
points. The local guards checked
well and handled everything that
came their way until they had the
Alberni boys shooting at long range.
N. Hill scored two or three nice baskets from centre but It would be better ln future If he passed tho ball as
those long shots are very uncertain
and give the opposlns team possession
of the ball on the rebound. Apart
from this Hill played a very good
game.
The players and points scored by
each were as follows:
Cumberland—H. Conrad (22), J.
Hill (16), V. Marinelli (4), N. Hill
(10), N. Frelone.
PortAlberni—E.MacDonald (6), R.

GETTING OUT OB1 TIIE RUT
IT IS EAiSlEK to get into a rut than it is to get
out of it. A young man starts out in hie,
ambitious to make something out oi himself;
he pushes ahead lor a time and then gets into a
narrow commonplace grove. Nine times out of
ten he'll stay there and the longer he stays the
deeper becomes the rut. Alter a time, he gets
so far down that he does not know there is a
world outside his narrow confines.
Our advice is to get out of thc rut and make
something out of yourself. Don't be content to be
a nobody but try to be a somebody and keep on
trying until you succeed. The soldier who is to
spend all his time in the barrack.-, will never win
glory and fame. If he wants that, he must get
into the thickest of the fray and light. So it is
with the battle of life.
"But I can't afford to take any chances, I have
so many responsibilities and must plod along in
the beaten track because of them." Such remarks
as these are often made as excuses by those living
in the ruts of life. If you have heard others make
such remarks, don't believe them; if you have
said the same thing yourself then don't believe
yourself. Responsiblities stimulate a man to
greater effort; a good wife and loving children
never kept a man down. The whole truth of the
matter is that it is easier to stay in the rut, but
you haven't the moral courage to admit it.
The only way to get out of the rut it to make
the effort yourself. Don't wait for some friend
to pull you out; if you do you'll wait in vain. Just
scramble up towards the higher ground and you'll
Und many a helping hand, but the helping hands
won't reach down into the rut and drag out a man
who doesn't want to be disturbed.
Let us tell you of a friend of ours who scrambled out of the rut of life and how he did it. Several years ago, he was the principal of a small
eastern seminary without any prospects of ever
being anything else. He determined to get out of
the rut by taking a post graduate course at a
university of world-wide reputation. It took
every dollar of his scanty savings years; it took
three years of hard unremitting toil by day and
night; it meant denial and closest economy during
all that time.but he never faltered. As a result
of thus taking the chances of life, our friend is
today the head of a department of one of the
largest colleges of the eastern portion of our
country, and will, if he lives, become one of the
foremost instructors of our land.
Now, our friend had responsibilities in the form
of a noble little wife, and three good children, and
a large measure of his success is due to the help
and encouragement he received from them.
What he has done, you can do. Not in the same
line of life work, perhaps, but in another. There's
an opportunity open for you if you will only avail
yourself of it.   Just get out of the rut.

TANKS.
One of the most impressive movements in he big new British war film,
"THE SOMME," is when, out of the
grey mist of the battel fleld there appears the gigantic outline of the first
Tank to enter Uie war zone.
The first entry of the Tanks into the
firing line was during the second week
ln September, 1916, and the surprise
of the troops when they saw the weird
and wonderful mechanical device, Is
aptly conveyed in the film when a
tommy, sheltering ln a shell hole,
during an advance, says to his mate
when he sees the Tank, "Have I got
'em, or something?" His mate's reply
is  "Gawstrikemepink."
The surprise of the British and Allied troops at the debut of the tanks
was nothing compared with that experienced by the Germans, who,
strongly entrenched in tlieir concrete
dugouts, thought their line impregnable. Came the Tanks—crushing entrances to gun emplacements, rolling
out the dug-out entrances, and literally "chewing up" barbed wire entanglements.
These incidents are wonderfully
conveyed ln this remarkable New Era
film which will be shown at the Ilo.

to such an extent that it is necessary
for me to choose which retainer I will
abide by.
In view of the foregoln I am const-rained to refer you to my letter of
February ISt'h, 1922, addressed to the
(hen City Clerk, which sets out the
terms of my Retainer In a way that
clearly indicates that the same applies I
to   Criminal   matters—^and   Criminal I
I matters only, and that the same has
absolutely nothing to do with civil
matters.    Every  year  following  the
year 1922, I huve written to the City
Clerk regarding the renewal of said
Retainer,   and   have  on  every  such.
occasion clearly pointed out that eacli |
renewal—wm based on ilie original
contract as outlined lu my letter of
February, above referred -to.   The dlf- J
fereace between the City Council and
the   above-named   Companies   is   entirely a matter of Civil Law and does '
not   by   aiiiy  stretch  of  Imagination
come within the purview of my Retainer.
It, therefore, follows that as I ara
retained bv the Companies referred
to as regards civil matters, I have no
choice In -the matter, and cannot act -
i as legal advisor for the City.
In conclusion I take the liberty of
saying that it is to be hoped that the
difference of opinion apparently existing between the Council and the
Companies will ibe adjusted In an
amicable way.

P. PHILLIPPS HARRISON. |

A communication received from the

; deal of discussion, the Mayor stating
that he was not yet satisfied! with he
explanation, it was suggested that a
delegation go from the Council to
Interview -the Superlntendant of Edu-
j cation and the City Clerk ordered to :
I write the superlntendant asking If a.

In reply to your letter of the 28 ult„ i
II may advise you that In my letter of'

I total days' attendance made Vy pupils
I enrolled   at   your   high   aud   pubile'
schools  was 33,423','j and that days' |
attendance made by "outside" pupils
was   21,053.     By   subtracting   21,055 |
from   the   total  attendance,   namely
33,423%, you will llnd that Uie number ;
of days' attendance made by "outside"
pnpih-,  is  therefore almost twice as
great as that made by pupils living ln
the  city.    The   cheque   for   $3,923.05
which  we  sent  you covers the  full
grant.

COUNCIL NOT IN FAVOR
OF CEMENT TENNIS COURT.
Under the heading of new business
the cement tennis court decided upon
at a special meeting of the Board of
School Trustees, came In tor a good
deal of discussion. The Mayor said
he looked upon the erection ot a
tennis court as extraordinary expense
and as lt was not Included In the
school estimates under tbat or any
other head, he would treat as "extraordinary expense" and would refuse
to sign the cheque for same when
-presemted. AM the jaldermen supported the mayor ln this matter and
the school trustees will be notified of
the attldude of the Council.
FIRE SVREN.
The purchase of an electric fire
syren at a cost of approximately
$475.00 was authorized. The syren
la similar to the one ln use at Duncan

During the course of the Council
meeting lt was brought to light that
a very high official of the Internatlon-
Utllitles, a strong American
concern with several Canadian sub-
sldary companies under Its control
was a visitor to the Council chambers
since the last meeting, seeking Information as to whether the Council
Intended buying out the business of
the Cumberland Electric Lighting Co.
The International subsidiary companies In Canada are the Canadian
Western Supplies, Canadian Utilities,
North West Supply, and the Canadian
Western Natural Gas, Light, Heat and
Power Company and among other

are expected in Cumberland during

TANKS j
a
One o fthe most impressive moments in the big •
new British War film, "THE SOMME," is when, out \
of the grey mist of the battle field there appears the :
gigantic outline of the first Tank to enter the war zone. ■
The first entry of the Tanks into the firing line was j
during the second week in September, 1916, and the ■
surprise of the troops when they saw the weird and ■
wonderful mechanical device, is aptly conveyed in the :
film when a Tommy, sheltering in a shell hole, during ■
an advance, says to his mate when he sees the Tank, |.
"Have I got 'em, or something?"   His mate's reply is |
"Gawstrikemepink." I"
a
The surprise of the British and Allied troops at •
the debut of the Tanks, was nothing compared with |
that experienced by the Germans, who, strongly en J
trenched in their concrete dug-outs, thought their line j
impregnable.  Came the Tanks—crushing entrances to jj
gun emplacements, rolling out the dug-out entrances, j
and literally "chewing up" barbed wire entanglements. j
These incidents are wonderfully conveyed in this •
remarkable New Era film which will be shown at the |
Ilo-Ilo Theatre. !

Acres upon acres of

-     MUD   AND   MEN.
The long-awaited New Era production "THE
SOMME," will be seen at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre, next week
end.
It is said that this war film differs in many respects from those that have preceeded it, in that it
shows the first engagement of the Tanks in the fighting
line, it reproduces many extremely funny incidents
which must have saved many a Tommy's sense of
humour during those weary days, and it reproduces
Somme mud at its worst.
Many of the men who took part in the film are
actual survivors of the Somme campaign, and they
have every reason to confirm the fact that the mud
was really genuine. After a long day's work—plodding
through the black bog, one little Cockney Tommy was
heard to say: "Blimey, Bill, I wish to goodness I could
stand under a hose pipe, then I might be able to get rid
of this 'ere mud."
One of the many thrilling incidents which are
included in the film, is that of the winning of the V.C.
by Piper James Richardson, of the 16th Canadian
Scottish, who, when his Company attacked, begged
permission to pipe them "over tiie top."

VICTORIA, March 14.—After moving heaven and earth to have the government abolish the absentee ballot,
Conservative  members ol the  legislature are not so sure that such a step
should be taken.   When the house was
well- under way last month the opposition claimed that this ballot waa an
I unfair one and could be manipulated
I by the party ln power.   Premier Mac-
| lean, after declaring emphatically that
i he believed lu the principle ot the ab-
|sentee ballot, consented to abolish It,
I so that the provincial election machinery could be kept as clean as possible,
j Later a special' committee was named
(j to consider the matter and it was felt
tha Briish Columbia's method ot voting was a sclean as could be provided.
Even lt the absentee vote ls not abolished, there will be little opportunity after the next general election for
j anyone to hurl abuse at the election
machinery.   It Is a most difficult matter, states the premier, in a country
as large aa British Columbia, to provide laws that will suit the convenience of everyone.
General approval Is being expressed over Premier MacLean's announced
plans to advertise British Columbia to
the<world at large.   When He vote for
(63,500 tor publicity and alvertising
was  being discussed,  it waB  shown
that $0500 will be used to advertise
this province as a sportsman's para-
j dlse.   The chief object of this will be
! to bring ln  big-game hunters.    The
I sum of (8,000 will be used in preparing and distributing a statistical yearbook.    None  has 'been  issued  since
1914.   An aditlonal (7,000 will be use.l
1 for pamphlets giving data on the potentialities ot British Columbia's natural resources and describing business   land   Investment   opportunities.
About (26,000 will be used for general

Despite the great acres of British
Columbia where few people live and
where predatory animals roam almost
at will, the government's war on coyotes, cougars and such enemies of the
farmer and new settler Is having good
results. The bounty on coyotes will
probably be Increased from $5 to $7.50

20,11)2 coyotes were accounted for In
1927. A bounty of SOcents will ibe paid

resources. The new plans will include the immediate reservation of
selected stands of large timber owned
by the province In the coast areas, to
form a source of supply when the
present coast timber belts are cut
within the next 50 years. Creation of
machinery to handle the work of

chers giving up their time to such a
cause. Always remember beautiful
examples like these which were confronted by some problems. One last
example, Jesus Christ suffered, bled
and died to retrieve a lost world. He
was not compelled to this, but ln his
great love for humanity was content
to give his life to save theirs.
Some of the worst boys ln Nanaimo
have been vastly Improved by placing
them in summer camps under the
leadership of excellent men. The boy
life of Nanaimo ls gradually becoming
better and lt is mainly due to work
such as this, sponsored by the Rotary
and other clubs. Boys every hour ls
filled with marvelous opportunities if
you could only see them, and take
them when they are offered.
In concluding I wish to say a word
or two about smoking. Do leave cigarettes and tobacco entirely alone. To
earn' ou good work, a clean mind and
a clean body are essential. The greatest hope we have today ls that all
across Canada there are men who are
willing to be leaders of boys, and are
prepared to give one evening a week,
and a period on Sunday afternoon to
the boys of their community."

for the Thompson  cup—Cumberland
High School girls versus Courtenay
High School  girls—and  would have
been a first class game from the spectators point of view had the end walls
been played.   As lt was lt turned out
to be only average.

1 nice combination,    Cumberland  was
I flrst to score on a foul awarded K.
' Brown.   Courtenay equalising shortly
after on a free throw.    E.  Pickettl.
j put her team ahead only to have Owen
, Falrbalrn equal matters on a shot that i
, should have been disallowed.   In the j
second quarter Courtenay added three,
more   points   with   Cumberland   not
getting auy.   The local girls hod the j
misfortune to lose E. Conrad in this j
quarter when she sSolMded with Gwen
Fairbairn and was out for the reet of
the game, J. Welch ably filling the
gap.
In the second half Cumberland pep-
ed up and ln short time were leading
7-6. But Courtenay came right back
through Gwen Falrbalrn to again take
the lead. The best basketball of -the
s.otlre game was played ln the last
period. The locals ralHed with a result that the game livened up The
ball travelled from basket to -basket
with Cumberland having a slight edge
on the play but were only able to ,
score a small percentage of their shots
