Blow from Ball
Brings Death to
Popular Youth
Courtenay Celebration Marred by
Fatal Accident
Courtenay, July 3rd.—Fred Stephens, truck driver tor the B. & K.
Milling company here was struck over
heart by a fly ball at 12:10 p.m. Dominion Day, in a game between the
Courtenay Busy Bees and Union Bay
held in conjunction with the Native
Sons' celebration here. In spite of the
attention of three attending physicians, Stephens died within 10 minutes. The accident was witnessed by
a crowd of approximately 900 people.
Stephens fielded the ball, running
in fast to get it, caught it against his
chest, and ran from his position at
centre field to a spot between second
and third base. He dropped to the
ground and efforts to revive him failed.
By his catch he retired the last man
in thc eighth innings. He was the son
of M. S. Stephens, manager of the
B. &K. store in this ei.y, who by a
strange whimsy of fate was president
of the sports Wednesday.
The tragedy cast a pall of gloom
over the celebrations and a subsequent game between the winners of
thc morning tilt and Happy Valley
was called off,
Fred Stephens was well known locally, was an all-round athlete and a
general favorite.
Ilo-Ilo Theatre
A Boulevard or
Cow Pasture?
The above question was fired at us
on Thursday by a well known local
resident as he entered the office.
What have wc got out here, he queried, a boulevard or a cow pasture?
We have to agree with him as it is
really difficult to know just what call
it. Surely our city fathers can find
enough money to give an out of work
resident at least one day's work each
week for at least two months in an
effort to improve the approach to the
city. That's about all it would take.
Once the grass was trimmed up, one
day's work each week would be all
that would be necessary. It is a poor
advertisement for the city of Cumberland to anybody coming here for
the first time to be met with an ill-
kept boulevard. How can thc city
fathers expect residents of the city
to be clean and tidy about their premises if they themselves keep the approach to the city in such a deplorable condition as it is at the present
time. If the city cannot afford to engage a man one day per week, let the
city teamster get busy, but by all
means let us have it cleaned up.
Description Of
New Slope At
Number 4 Mine
Interesting , Report   in   Minister   of
Mine.' Annual Statement
The following very interesting account of the new slope at No. 4 mine
which was completed a short time
ago and is now in operation is taken
from the annual report of the Minister of Mines, pages 392 and 393.
The new slope is described as "Scott's
Slope", No. 4 mine, with T. W. Scott
manager, C. J. Parnham, J. Quinn
and John Dando, firebosses:
"On account of long haulage and
poor ventilation in the section at the
top of No. 1 incline off No. 11 West
level, No. 1 slope, it was decided to
sink two slopes from the surface to
connect with these workings and
overcome the existing difficulties of
operation. This section will be the
future producer of the mine, being in
un area of solid coal.
"The workings in this section are
about 200 feet below the surface
and quite an overburden of gravel
is known to exist over the area. A
shaft was sunk through the- gravel
and sand rock was met at a depth of
24 feet. To connect with the bottom
of the shaft a rock-drift was driven,
on a pitch of 40°, up from the coal-
workings below, 200 feet long and
7 by 9 feet in section. The shaft has
a concrete lining 12 inches thick
based on a ledge of sand-rock which
was trimmed off for this purpose at
the bottom after the drift was put
"The shaft is 8 by 8 feet in the
clear. On one side a ladder-way has
been made, and this ladder-way is
continued to the bottom of the drift
providing a travelling-way for the
men working in the section, thereby
permitting them to have one hour
longer at the face on account of the
shorted distance to travel.
"Air-measurements show a quantity of 25,000 cubic feet of air a minute passing down this shaft for the
use of forty men and five mules at
present employed in this section.
"The main haulage slope, which
will reach the coal-workings within a
distance of 650 feet,- is now being
sunk from the surface. The slope is
7 by 10 feet in the clear, on a pitch
of 22 per cent, and at the end of
December the slope was down 180
feet, 130 feet having been driven
through gravel. In the gravel the sets
consisting of 15-ineh diameter timbers, are spaced 2 feet 6 inches centre to centre, placed on 6-inch by
13-inch sills.
"The new slope is situated about
1 mile to the north of No. 4 mine tipple, with which it is connected by a
narrow-gauge track. The coal will be
hauled in trips of thirty mine-cars by
a steam dinky locomotive and screened at No. 4 mine-tipple."

friends met at Royston on Monday
evening for the purpose of staging
a surprise party for their leader, C.
W. Sillence. The latter, sensing that
something was in the "wind" surprised the members of the party as they
were gathering at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Greig. The real reason of
the meeting was soon explained then
the fun started. A real jolly evening
ensued in music and song and during
the course of the jollity a halt was
called for the purpose of presenting
to Mr. Sillence and Mrs. Finch, who
has proved to be such a sympathetic
accompanist, with tokens of the
choir's esteem and regard.
City Must Pay
$72,000 Award
Came   Carries   Cost
As reported in these columns some
time ugo the city of Cumberland lost
the case ugainst the Cuniherlnnri Kl-
ectric Lighting Co. Thursday's Prov- -
ince carried the following, having received the latest particulars on the
"By a judgment of Supremo
Court of Canada, which has been received at Vancouver Courthouse, the
City of Cumberland is required to
pay nearly $72,000 to Cumberland
Electric Light Co., Ltd., as compensation for taking over from the tatter its plant, equipment and the balance of a fifty-year franchise.
"From the time the award was
made by arbitrators the city has been
unsuccessful in its attempts to reduce the amount. The award was affirmed on appeal to Chief Justice
Morrison in Supreme Court, and his
judgement was upheld by the Cour:
of Appeal, and now, by Supreme
Court of Canada. The corporation of
Cumberland must pay the costs of
the proceedings.
Mr. J. W. deB. Farris, K.C, wns
counsel for the Electric Light Company, and Mr. N. H. McDiarmid for
the city.
"The appeal was heard in Ottawa
by Chief Justice Anglin and Justices
Newcombe, Renfret, Smith and Can-
Silver Wedding
Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Davis entertained about 60 of their friends at a
happy affair at Cumberland hall on
Friday evening last on the occasion
of their silver wedding. Twenty-five
years ago on June 30th their marriage took place in the state of Colorado. In the early evening cards were
played by the large assembly, guests
indulging in their favorite game of
whist, bridge or crib. T .Monks and
Mrs. 0. Bond were whist prize-winners, A. Clarke and Mrs. Hudson
captured bridge prizes with 3, Quinn
and Mrs. Slaughter winning prizes
for cribbage.
At this stage of the evening a mock
wedding group appeared in costume
of other days, their make-up and antics bringing down the house. Mr?.
Elsie Brown, Mrs. Hudson, Mrs. B.
Hunden and Mrs. Derbyshire made
up the group of principals while
"Bobby" Brown filled the role of
parson in most comical manner. Community singing and various hilarious
games into which all joined winth
zest, made up a never-to-be-forgotten time. A. Delicious and sumptuous
supper was served *on prettily arranged tables and when all had done-
justice to the good things provided,
Mr. J. Quinn toastmaster proposed
the toast to the bride and groom with
wishes for their continued happiness,
health and prosperity. Mr. and Mrs.
Davis who have resided in the district
for many years have made many
friends as attested by the beautiful
gifts received on this happy occasion
among which were a handsome old-
rose silk brocaded bedspread and
bolster from lady members of the
"Nomads" crib club, Mrs. Elsie
Brown making the presentation; a
handsome silver sugar and cream set
with tray from a group of bridge
club friends, Mrs. Parkinson presenting the gift. In addition were many
individual gifts. Dancing and a varied programme added to the evening's
pleasure, among those contributing
being Mrs. Elsie IJ.-own, Mrs. F. Bond
and Messrs. S. Jones, H. Parkinson,
J. D. Duvis, W. Mossey, B. Bennie,
H. Jackson, R. T. Brown.
The Union Hall or Miners' Hall as
it has been known for a decade will
be re-shingled in the very near future, tenders already having been
called for. The building has suffered
from the depredations of a bunch of
the rougher boysof the town, but it
is understood that on completion of
the shingling the interior will be put
into shape and the hall rented for
dances, badminton or basketball. It
is quite possible that it will be Lhe
home of a badminton club during the
winter months. It would make an
ideal headquarters for such and already application has been made by
interested parties.
Contracts Let
By School Board
Peter   Dickimon   Get*   Wood   Order;
Painting Contract Divided
At the last meeting of the Board of
School Trustees four members were
present, Mesdames MacNaughton and
Partridge and Messrs. McKinnon and
Vaughan when the contract for 10
cords of wood was awarded to Peter
Dickinson at $4.00 per cord. Other
tenders were P. McNiven, $6.00 per
cord; R. Izaac, $6.00; C. T. Acker,
$4.50. The painting of the Manual
Training building was awarded as
follows: inside work, H. Parkinson,
$52.00; roof and walls to W. H. McLellan, Jr., roof $58.00, walls, $74.50.
The salary of the third teacher for
the high school was fixed at $1375 for
the coming year and the matter of
appointment was left over until August. Both Mr. E. D. Partridge and
Miss Ella Bowering made application
for the position, the applications being ordered received and filed. An
application from Mr. Clifford Horwood was also ordered to be filed.
Miss P. Partridge wrote the board
from Paris thanking the members for
the year's leave of absence granted
and stating that she would be prepared to resume her duties in September. Miss Partridge has put in a
strenuous year of very profitable
work and is prepared to give the students at the Cumberland high school
the benefit of the experience gained.
A communication was also received
from the superintendent of education
notifying the board that on account
of the probable attendance in the
public school beginning in September being 446 pupils, that number
would entitle the board to grants for
12 teachers.
Very good reports were tendered
by principals of both the public and
high schools and both wrote in glowing terms of the co-operation and
support of the members of the respective staffs.
Gardens In City
Suffer from Visits
Of Young Folks
Warning It Itiued; Prosecution* Will
Surely  Follow
Several residents in Cumberland
have complained to the Islander about
the young element of Cumberland
visiting gardens and doing great damage. One promnient citizen took our
representative into his garden on
Thursday and showed us the damage
done to one of his apple trees. It is
a damnable thing when a person cannot have a garden without some imbecile wanting to destroy it. In one
case a lady complaining mentioned
the fact that so far as the depredations to her garden were concerned,
they were all done by young girls
between the ages of twelve and fifteen. She has an idea as to who they
are, but does not want to prosecute,
but says if, after due warning, the
damage continues, she will have to
prosecute. It is a seriuos offense to
trespass on one's garden and it is
doubly serious to do wilful damage.
Some of the young boys and girls in
the city will be well advised to curb
their energy and keep from destroying other people's property. If these
hooligans want to destroy why the
mischief don't they stay around their
own places and destroy their own
property. Oh, no, there's no fun in
that. Fun or no fun, from now on,
these "birds" had better keep a sharp
look out as there are more persons
besides the police constable on the
watch. Prosecutions will surely follow
persons caught in the act of • trespassing. Be wise in time, kids, stay
in your own back yard.
A very close game resulted from
the meeting of the Comox and Cumberland Cardinals Softball teams ut
the City Park, Cumberland on Monday night last, the Cardinals running
out winners by the close score of
10 runs to 9. The game was ■vfatched
by a fair number of spectators, but
just as the hat went round the rain
came on and the city park looked like
a tag day in Aberdeen. The result of
the collection being very disappointing.
The supper room at the Winter
Gardens, Royston, was the scene of a
very jolly flannel dance on Friday
evening last, sponsored by Dr. and
Mrs. G. Ker MacNaughton and a
group of young people. The Sunny-

their efforts being much appreciated
by all present.
Cricket With The
Navy on Sunday
The cricket team of H.M.S. Dragon
will be in Cumberland on Sunday for
a game with the local eleven. The
boat arrives at Comox today at 4
o'clock and a representative of the
Cumberland club will go aboard to
make arrangements for the time of
starting the game and also for transportation. It is expected that the
game will start at 2 in the afternoon
as that is the time suggested by the
local committee. However, the time
will be made to suit the navy bays
and transportation will be provided
for them from Royston wharf. The
Dragon is reported to possess a real
good cricket team and also a first-
class soccer eleven. How about our
junior champions playing the boat's
soccer team. Surely a game could be
The team for Sunday's cricket
game will be picked from Hall (captain), Idiens, McLaughlin, Ellis, Vernon-Jones, Gough, C. V. Dando, Carney, Boothman, Taylor, H. R. Lacon,

Courtenay Celebration Held
In Brilliant Summer Sunshine
Dominion Day Sports Marred by
Unfortunate Accident
The neighboring city of Courtenay
set out on Wednesday morning to
celebrate Dominion Day in a big jolly
way and had made provision to cater
to a large number of visitors. The
day, however, was marred by an unfortunate accident to Fred Stephens,
one of the Courtenay baseballers,
who met instant death ufter fielding
a fly bull, being struck over the heart
with the ball he was attempting to
catch. In spite of the immediate help
of three physicians who were on the
ground whilst the ball game was in
progress between Union Bay and
Courtenay, nothing could be done for
the unfortunate player. Thc accident
happened close to twelve o'clock and
threw a gloom over the whole of th'.-
proceedings, which were immediately
stopped. The cricketers, entertaining
the Auroras of Vancouver were not
aware of the accident until some time
after the accident and continued to
play their game until the lunch hour,
12:30. By the express wish of the unfortunate boy's father, the other
sports were continued after lunch,
but the accident remained the chief
topic of conversation. The Vancouver cricketers, assisted by two of the
Cumberland team, F. V. Hall and J.
Vernon-Jones, met defeat by eight
runs on the first innings but taking
the two combined innings came out
easy winners. The baseball was cancelled and no further game played
in the competition.

The Cumberland Islander
PRINTERS, and those connected with the printing business from Victoria to Cumberland and
Courtenay will hold their annual outing or
"Wayzgoose" probably this month. Previous years
the affair has been held in the Victoria area, but
an effort is beng made to persuade the Victoria
friends to come to the northern portion of the
Island, say Qualicum Beach or Parksville. News
from London, England, has had the effect of dismissing a very great and peculiar feast merely
as "those gatherings known in provincial England
as "Wazygoo.se". And that great feast can not be
so dismissed. For it is not a general feast but a
special one. It has from the earliest time of the
printing era been the special annual dinner and
outing of printers and their employees says a
feature writer in the Vancouver Daily Province.
The writer's earliest recollections are concerned
with a merry bunch of printers climbing into a
char-a-banc, all dressed up in their Sunday best,
each with a special flower adorning his coat—aiul
loaded with refreshments—liquid variety. As the
char-a-banc got under way, the trumpeter, specially engaged for the occasion would let the world
know the printers were on their way. This was in
South West Lancashire and the Wayzgoose usually took us into Cheshire, either to the Frodsham
Hills or to the historic Chester and on arriving at
the appointed place, dinner would be served, following which sports would be held and visits made
to as many taverns as possible. The return journey would be made with just as much noise and
hilarity as the start, but it would usually be of a
different variety, and not quite as steady.
The origin of the term Wayzgoose is in some
doubt. The relations of England and Holland in
the period when printing took root in those countries were very close. There was an annual goose
fair held at Waes in Brabant ,so that it is possible
there is some connection between that goose fair
and the wayzgoose of the printers.
IN RECENT years Canada has had an adverse trade
balance  in   its   interchange   with   the   United   States
amounting to as much as $400,000,000. It is to help
offset this and to stimulate employment in our own Dominion, for our own people, that the recent tariff changes
were made.
The changes are already beginning to have effect. The
coal mines have been aided by a duty upon imports and
a bonus upon exported coal. Thc mine owners do not
consider the bonus of 25 cents a ton on exported coal
sufficient to enable them to overcome the obstacles in
their way. The Vancouver Island Collieries are nevertheless making a trial shipment of nearly 2,000 tons to
Callao, Peru. Great importance is attached to this experimental shipment, from the Union Bay and Nanaimo
mines, as it may mean the opening up of a large South
American trade.
The coal interests are pressing the government to
increase the bonus to aid the industry in its efforts to
secure this export trade and market. C. II. Dickie, representing Nanaimo, presented their case at Ottawa the
other day, stressing the decline in the coal production
in British Columbia, with particular relation to
Vancouver Island. In 1910 the Island produced 1,616,030
tons of coal, and last year, despite a greatly increased
population, production had fallen to 988,805 tons. In
1910, 5,041,746 gallons of fuel oil were imported, and
in 1930 the fuel oil consumed in the province was at
130,000,000 gallons. That illustrates why the coal industry has been declining, and why Mr. Dickie has made a
strong plea that something should be done to put thc
industry on a better basis. He admits that the bonus of
25 cents a ton on coal used for fuel purposes, for ships'
stores or for export, will do some good, but it will not
accomplish what is needed. He pleads for a higher bonus
and it is to securethis that Dr. S. F. Tolmie is now using
every endeavor with Ottawa. Mr. Dickie fails to see why
we should send four or five or six millions of dollars annually to California for fuel oil, while our coal miners
are only working part time, and sometimes not working
at all.
The case of the coal miners of Vancouver Island is a
hard one. There is still ample coal, but a restricted market combined with overmuch competition from fuel oil.

Questions concerning health, addressed to the Canadian Medical Association, 184 College St.,
Toronto, will be answered per-
During the hot weather, the baby
is more apt to have digestive upsets
than he iB during other seasons of
the year. This applies particularly to
the artificially-fed baby. Digestive;
disturbances occur much less frequently in babies who are being naturally-fed. The value of breastfeeding and its superiority over artificial feeding are chiefly evident during the summer months.
Care should be taken the year
round. but extra precautions are necessary during the summer if the
baby is to be properly safeguarded
and kept healthy.
There is a greater chance for milk
to become contaminated in summer.
The safe pasteurized milk which you
buy may be contaminated in the

carry infection are present during
the hot weather, and they do not hesitate to bathe in the milk if they get
the chance to do so. Milk must always
be kept covered and protected from
these pests.
Milk is a food. In order that they
may multiply, germs require food and
warmth. When milk is warm, it fulfils the very conditions required by
germs for growth and they do grow
and multiply at an amazing rate. If
such milk is given to the baby, the
heavy dose of germs which he receives together with the milk is very
apt to set up diarrhoeal conditions.
It is obvious then that not only should
milk be kept covered, but also that it
should stand in a cold place, and this
means on ice. Never should milk be
allowed to stand around in a warm
room even for a short time.
Do not overfeed the baby in summer. In hot weather, less food than
usual is required, and this rule applies to the baby as well as to the
older members of the family. Do not
urge the baby to finish his bottle if
he seems inclined to leave part of it.
When the weather is really hot, it is
better to reduce the amount of milk
given. Do not forget that the baby
is often thirsty during the hot spells
und that he should be offered cool
water between feedings. If there is
any doubt as to the purity of the
water, it should, first of all, be boiled.'
The baby may suffer from excessive perspiration and a heat rash may
appear as a result of the hot weather
and also because he is over-clothed.
The way to help the baby to avoid
this discomfort is to clothe him lightly.
Digestive upsets in the baby should
always be regarded as serious. If a
diarrhoea does occur, alt feedings
should be stopped, cool water given
for a drink, and the doctor called.
We cannot overlook the fact that
nearly four thousand babies die in
Canada in one year from diarhoea
and enteritis. Everything should be
done to prevent the condition, by
means of proper care, but if it does
occur, then it must be treated
promptly and properly if the lives
of our babies are to be preserved.

Cumberland Eagles' Eleven Are
Recipients of  Provincial
Award at Banquet
CUMBERLAND, June 30.—There was
a fairly large gathering at the Eagles'
Home on Monday night on the occasion of a special meeting of the Order
which was followed by a social evening
when the Eagles' soccer eleven, junior
champions of British Columbia were
guests of honor and were presented
with gold medals.
Tom Carney, the Longshoreman fullback, acted as chairman in a very able
manner and in a few introductory remarks outlined the' activities of the
Eagles' team during the season. He
said he would not take time by making any speech as there was present
several men who were closely identified with junior football on the Island and all would, no doubt, rather
listen to them than to him.
The Merry Makers' orchestra was
In attendance and * rendered several
popular selections during the eevnlng.
There was also a varied programme
and adding greatly to the enjoyment
of the evening were songs by Messrs.
Bradley, Richardson, Hill, Carney
Fellows, T. Brown, Waterfield, Mart-
holdl, Tobacco and stories by Dick Coe
and Roy Howay.
R. T. Brown, club manager, spoke
very encouragingly of the successful
team and of the prospects for next
season. Mr. Brown thinks there is
enough football material at this end
of the Island to keep all trophies won
last year, right in the city of Cumberland. In addition to speaking well
of the boys, Mr. Brown graciously filled one of the big cups won and Invited the players to drink to a successful period during the coming season.
Other speakers were Mr. J. Vernon-
Jones, Mr. H. Waterfield, and Mr. Tom
Armstrong. Half way through the
chairman called for order and stated
that the time had arrived to undertake
the most important item on the programme and he real reason for the
gathering that night, the presenting
of the medals to the members of the
Eagles' team. He called upon Mr. W.
Whyte, the president of the junior
football association at this end of the
Island to present the medals.
Mr.. Whyte stated that it afforded
him great pleasure to be present at
the gathering and to present the medals to the very successful Eagles' team.
Briefly he reviewed the record of the
team during the past season, claiming It was an achievement that had
not been equalled before in B. C. The
team went through the season without a single defeat and only dropped
one point in the league table, making
a draw with Courtenay at Union Bay.
Every piece of silverware that had
been entered for had been won. He
congratulated the boys on their wonderful achievement and presented
medals to the following: Campbell,
Weir, Stant, Walker, Gibson, Conrod,
Bickle, Bartholdi, Brown, McLellan,
Bradley, Hunter, Howay, Tobacco and
Following the presentation of the
medals, the chairman called upon Mr.
Dan. Bannerman for a few words. Mr.
Bannerman said he must congratulate
the boys on their great season, and
sincerely hoped that the coming season
would see them as successful. He had
been very proud to act as the representative of the northern portion of
the Island on the British Columbia
football association and paid tribute
to Mr. Richardson, the president of the
association, who is heart and soul in
the junior football movement.
All meetings of the junior association that he, Mr. Bannerman had attended were conducted in a very businesslike manner and bickerings and
unpleasantness such as the seniors experienced were unknown. He again
congratulated the boys and hoped the
silverware would remain at this end
of the Island.
Miss J. Baird spent the week-end in
Courtenay, the guest of her daughter,
Mrs. F. Smith.

Little Freddy Smith, son of Mr. and
Mrs. F. Smith, of Courtenay, is a patient in the Cumberland General hospital, suffering from a poisoned leg.
How Retailers
Buy By
Many retailers in outlying districts are now being
called up by wholesalers
over the long-distance telephone between personal visits of salesmen.
The wholesaler lets the
retailer know when he will
call him up. The retailer
keeps a memo of the goods
he wants and when he gets
the call it is an easy matter
for him to place hit order.
This method saves the retailer time and money. He is
able to buy closely and take
every advantage of price
fluctuations. Ask the Arms
you deal with about longdistance   telephone   service.
Nuptials of
Japanese Of
Interest Here
CUMBERLAND, June 30.—A pretty
wedding of interest to friends of the
principals on the mainland and locally
took place at the Japanese hall at No.
1 Japtown on Saturday afternoon lost
at four o'clock when Miss Yoshiye Nagano of Vancouver, niece of Mr. Nagano of Cumberland, was united in
marriage to Mr. Sadaki Asao of Cumberland. The bride, given in marriage
by her uncle, was prettily attired in a
gown of white bridal satin, fashioned
on long lines. Her 'veil, which fell to
the hem of her gown, was held In
place by a coronet of orange blossoms.
A beautiful necklace of pearls completed the costume while she carried a
shower bouquet of cream roses and
blue delphinium.
Miss Turuko Kiyonaga of the Cumberland hospital staff, was bridesmaid
and wore a pretty gown of pink satin
while her bouquet was similar to that
of the bride, he also wore a pink bandeau on her hair to match her gown.
Little Misses Tatuko Yano and Yasuko
Nagano, the latter a cousin of the
bride, were petite flower girls, wearing
while silk and carrying between them
a basket of lovely summer flowers. Mr.
hlgeru Kiyono was best man. The
party made a pretty picture as It advanced toward the head of the hall
to the strains of the wedding march
played by Mrs. J. R. Hewitt. Rev.
Ogura of Victoria, assisted by Mr.
Momoto officiated.
Following the ceremony a reception
for the bridal party and their numerous friends in the district was held at
the home of the groom's parents and
a bounteous supper was served. The
good wishes of many friends will be
extended to the young couple who will
make their home here. The bride was
for several years associated with the
Japanese Mission of the United Church
in Vancouver while the groom was educated in the Cumberland schools.
From information we have bcen
able to gather, we learn that Norman Hill, the local athlete, competing
at Powell River on Wednesday was
running very close to boing the grand
aggregate winner. The latest information we got was to the effect that
Norman was one point behind but
had two more events to enter. Thc
winner of the grand aggregate prize
at these sports will get a free trip
to the Olympic sports at Los Angeles.
