BIG MOMENT IN FILM
IN LAST FIFTY FEET
In a Dim replete with big moments,
the biggest moment of "Stella Dallas"
Is In its last fifty feet ot Dim.
Henry King, director of the dim
version of Olive Higgins Prouty's
celebrated novel, has adroitly built a
powerful emotional suspense, which
he unleashes In a smashing climax.
In developing the finish of the picture, King used all the screen arts and
technique at his command to give to
this peak of feeling, all the quality
of pathos and happiness so strongly
conveyed In the novel.
"Stella Dallas comes to the Ilo-Ilo
Theatre this week-end.
The film Is sponsored by Samuel
Goldwyn as his Initial picture for
United Artists Corporation release.

GOOD WILL TOWARDS MEN
44.fwOOD WILL towards Men," coupled   with
U    the other words of thc beatitude,  "on
earth peace," seems a most fitting phrase
for this Christmas Greeting.
Good Will, if genuine and sincere, is the rock
upon which the structure of peace can be erected;
but if we simply utter it as a platitude, it accomplishes nothing. Good-will to be effective must
be lived. Good Will to be effective must be so'
big and so broad that it comprehends the other
fellow's viewpoint, his handicap, his struggles,
his ambitions, and his successes.
It is hard for the self-centred man to entertain'
good-will and appreciation of the man whose life
work is concentrated on something else. Most
of us are self-centred. This is an age of intense ;
concentration, and concentration results in the j
centreing of our thoughts on our own affairs, to I
the exclusion of other people's.
Probably a large portion of the ill-will which
goes to make the sum total of the world's dis-1
cord arises from a lack of understanding of the j
other man.   It is easy enough to frame up a love
feast, by bpying some fellow a good dinner and
have him tell you what a fine fellow you are.  The I
man in place and power and patronage to dis- [
pose of has no particular difficulty in drawing to
himself the applause of those he benefits or who
are seeking his benefits, and his calibre does not
have to be unusually large to cherish good will
to those who fawn upon and flatter him. How
many of us can take cold, and sometimes cutting
but honest criticism, and yet cherish good will
for this critic? As a matter of fact, so few of
us have the moral stamina to accept it that
honest" criticism is becoming a lost art.
Critics have found that their occupation is
neither pleasant nor profitable, and instead of
waiting for the tardy justice of an obituary, most
of them have turned into "glad hand artists." It
pays better and is pleasanter, and brings a certain
superficial good will. But that kind of good will
is not enduring. Very few sensible men take
lasting pleasure in seeing their own reflection in
a cheap mirror, and sooner or later the flatterer
is found out and relegated to oblivion, and now
and then the man who dares to say what he
thinks comes into his own and receives the good
will of those to which his Spartan courage has
entitled him to respect.
In our Christmas greetings let us try and extend the spirit of good-will in its big universal
sense. Charity is the underlying principle of
genuine good-will. One may search the books
and fail to find a more perfect definition couched
in more beautiful diction than in St. Paul's
Epistle to the Corinthians, "Charity suffereth
long; and is kind; Charity envieth not; Charity
vaunteth not itself; it is not easily puffed up;
doth not behave itself unseemly; seeketh not her
own; is not easily provoked j thinketh no evil; re-
joiceth not iniquities; but rejoiceth in the
truth." If we can live up to that creed we can
honestly and sincerely make our Christmas greetings, "Good Will towards Men."
—Charles Heston Pierson.

RATTLING HUMOR
AND REAL PATHOS
That fundamental yearning of the
human soul, to make our children
better than we are, has led many a
parent to heroic sacrifice and has
been the cause of Innumerable hardships and heart breaks.
While this parental unselfishness
has been the subject of countless
books and "heart Interest" storleB In
the  press.   It has  remained  for  the
I moving   pictures   lo  glorify  it  most
j fully.    Unusual stress has been  laid
[ on  this  theme  through  the  medium
of the screen recently by George Sydney  in   his  latest  F.B.O.   Production,
"Clancy's   Kosher   Wedding,"   which
comes to the llo-llo, Friday and Sa't-
i urday. Dcceinebr .'In and 31.
'    The  emotional  interest  which   Hy-!
I man   and    Mrs.   Cohon,   played   by
I George  Sidney and  Ann  Brody,  dis- ■
| play over tlie money they have saved :
' througli   years   ol   privation   to  send
[their daughter. Leah, to college shows|
vividly the pride which parents of
nny class take in fostering the advancement  of their  children.
What might be considered the
shortest story of a lifetime is given
in two sentences, when Cohen, after
counting his savings says, "Ve got
almost |800." To which Momma Cohen replies. "It takes $1200 to learn
her good." Thc pathos and laughter
which are apparent In this scene typify the entire picture, which ases its
appeal on the simple and fundamental emotions of the audience.

In the home that owns a Westinghouse rp.dio,
Chris'.tr.a: cheer does not die with the Yule
log embers. Long after other gifts are forgotten a Westinghouse brings countless hours
of enjoyment.
Never before have you been able to have
such vr.lue in radio sets at so moderate a price.
The new 1928 Westinghouse models and
Radiolas include a set for all methods and requirements of operation. A choice of storage
battery, dry battery and socket power operation affords perfect radio enjoyment under all
conditions—at a price you cm afford.
The performance of these new sets is flawless. Distant stations are brought in loud,
clear and without distortion. Their tone is as
mellow and sweet as that of an old violin. One
dial station selector makes them as simple to
operate as turning on an electric light. All
console models have the new Oval Cone
loud speaker built in. Cabinets are of walnut
in pleasing design and finished in Duco.
Decide now to have one oi these new models
in your 1'oine this Christmas. We'll gladly
give a demonstration in your home without
cost or obligation.    Phone us to-day.

Ileum School Concert mid Christmas
Tree
;    On  Wednesday evening the school
house was packed Willi kiddies and
1 parents for the annual concert and
I Clivistmas Tree.   The room presented
an animated appearance, being very
artistically decorated by the teachers
and pupils. The concert was without
doubt one of thc best ever put on by
the school children, who carried out
their parts splendidly, and the comic
stunt by two senior girls and the
presentation nf "The Human Ford,"
and Its peculiarities just simply
brought tlie house down, ns did tho
dnnce by eight of the senior girls
and boys which was encored. At the
conclusion of the concert everyone
was loud in their praise of the teachers, Miss Gear and Miss Jarvis, for
the hours of hard work they had put
ill to make it the success it was. The
main part for most of the kiddles was
when Santa Claus arrived with his
sleigh bells ringing, and on thc curtain being pulled back a lovely decorated tree was seen laden down wlm
parcels which Santa Claus gave out
to ninety-two children, along with a
large bag ot candy and fruit.

on Puddings from Old Land
months ago, a vacancy occurred, Mr.
W. McMillan being appointed at the
meeting to fill the vacancy.
Something in the nature of a bomb
was dropped when it was passed on
motion, that the services of the part-
time paid secretary be dispensed with
and one of the stewards be appointed
to include the secretarie's duties
along  with  that  of the  stewardship.
Mr. Strachan, who has filled the
position of secretary for the past two
years and nine months has rendered
yoeman service to the club and it is
to be regretted that -the financial
standing of the institution does not
permit the employing of a part lime
secretary.

gift drops surprisingly In value on
the appraiser's sheet to get it under
tbe dollar duly. The tariff on Christmas puddings is 35 per cent, from the
I'nited States, but many a $3 pudding
will roll ln nt lower valuation. The
duty would lie $1.05 but a $2.50 pudding would lie 87V..C. and under the
dollar, but the $3 pudding will get by
Just tbe same.
Presents should bave some note or
message inside proving they are not
regular merchandise. The tariff Item
exempting gifts has not specific application to Christmas presents. It covers any donation or gift on which the
value of the duty payable ls under $1
and applies at any lime nf the year.
S. S. "ALAMEDA"
GOES AGROUND
Campbell River, Dec. 20.—The "Alameda." of the Alaska S. S. Co., called at Campbell River on Thursday
night on her way north to pick up
some freight which had been laken
off thc "Northwestern." The Alameda, which is a 5.000 ton vessel,
when leaving the wharf, ran aground
ou a reef just a few feet north ot the
wharf and owing to the falling tide
bad to lay there until next morning.
Road Gangs Working Hard
The recent thaw and subsequent
frost left made the roads In deplorable condition. However, the road
gangs have been working over time
with the result that the main highway and the Cumberland road are In
very good shape, but the side-roads
nre nothing but frozen ruts.

Give Something
ELECTRICAL
Of course you'll want your Christmas gifts to be
pleasant reminders for the whole year. There is one
sure way—
GIVE SOMETHING ELECTRICAL!
For every member of the family there is an electrical gift that is ideal. For the boy, a flashlight, train
set. For the girl, curling tongs, boudoir lamp; and for
the mother, a percolator, toaster, iron, egg boater, or
one of the larger electrical labor savers. Dad'll like
a heater, or a desk lamp.
