FORTY-NINTH    YEAR—No.    45.
A. J. Taylor Heads
The Conservative
Association Here
At a fairly well attended meeting
of the Cumberland Conservative association held in the Memorial Hall
on Sunday night, A. J, Taylor, of
West Cumberland was again chosen
us president for thc ensuing year.
Other officers included A. Watson,
vice-president, James Quinn, secretary, who replaces C. O'Brien nnd
who will also till the office of treasurer. Publicity agent. J. Vernon-
Jones and the executive committee,
Sam Cameron, Frank J. Dalby,
Fraser Watson, Bon Nicholas, Fred
Simister, W. Oraham, John Newman,
A. McKnight, H. Waterfield and
Frank Monaco.
It was also decided to form a ladies' social committee and the members of the ladies' auxiliary will be
asked to choose a committee from
amongst their number, A new committee to be known as the membership committee was also formed. This
committee will begin to function immediately and a drive for new members undertaken as early as possible.
Honorary officers chosen were Dr.
Tolmie, honorary president, Dr. G.
K. MacNaughton and Thomas Graham, honorary vice-presidents.
Following the election of officers,
business of vital importance was
freely discussed ,the enthusiasm
shown being most marked. Much
good will undoubtedly result from
the very frank discussions entered
into and it begins to look as though
the local Conservative Association
was in for a prosperous period.
Dr. G. K. MacNaughton, M.L.A.,
was present at the meeting and addressed the members giving a full
account of what had taken place
since the last meeting of the local
association. He also described very
fully the arrangements for relief
work to be undertaken by' thc government. The Doctor made it very
plain that married men with families,
in need of relief work, irrespective
of their political opinions would be
given the first consideration. It was
not intended to introduce anything
in the way of "political patronage"
under thc relief plan. The Doctor
also answered several questions satisfactorily and on taking bis seat was
applauded for his very frank and
enlightening talk.
Mr. Thomas Graham, who attended the meeting at Victoria last week
with Dr. MacNaughton and other
members of Cumberland and Courtenay board of trade with reference
to the Dominion Park area for Vancouver Island, also spoke.
Mr. Graham described the beauties of tong Beach on the West
Coast as a park site, linked up with
Strathcona Park and the Forbidden
Plateau. He firmly believed that this
area was the very finest for such an
area as the Dominion Parks com-
mision is anxious to have. Long
Beach, said Mr. Graham had 14 miles
of a beautiful sandy beach, not just
a few yards of sand here and there,
but a full stretch extending for the
whole 14 miles. The surf from the
Pacific came rolling in and was a
sight well worth seeing. He would
like to see the calm Pacific very
angry at .Long Beach as it would undoubtedly be a magnificent sight. A
Dominion Parks commissioner, a Mr.
Wardle had been over the site, south
of Alberni Canal, an area that was
being advocated by Victoria interests.
It had been possible to persuade Mr.
Wardle to view the Long Beach area
nnd that gentleman was at the present time in that section of the Island. It was found, however .impossible, at this time of the year, for
Mr. Wardle to view the Strathcona
Park and the high altitudes but a
promise had been exacted that in the
spring time the commissioners would
have an expert go over the whole
of the area when it was hoped something definite would  result.
Mr. Graham also viewed very
briefly thc work of the Conservative
government during the past two,
years, going especially over the work
accomplished in the matter of the
P. G. E. and the Sumas area. He
spoke of the Dam in the interior of
the Province, a project which Mr.
Pattulo had taken such pride .in that
he had his name in huge letters in
the front of the dam. It was known
far and wide as the "Pattullo
Dam" but residents in that section of
the country who had been promised
such wonderful results from the dam
had suggested that the two letters
be reversed and that it should be
"Dam Pattullo."
On concluding his remarks Mr.
Graham was given a very hearty
vote of thanks.
The meeting went on record as
favoring the Cumberland Lake-Al-
berni road and the Long Beach-
Strathcona Park-Forbidden Plateau
area as a Dominion Park site.

The Union Bay crib players continue their winning streak defeating
Courtenay Elks at Courtenay on
Wednesday night by a score of 19
po.ints to 17. The games were very
close and greatly enjoyed, following
which the Elks entertained the visitors, the social hour being much appreciated. This win keeps the shipping point boys at the head of the
Comox Community players are

Relief Work
Under Way
Gang Working on Road Through tha
Relief work for the unemployed in
the outlying district started on Tuesday when a number of men started
to improve the road through the
camp. Representations have been
made to the government for new
road work to be started by various
local organizations but up to the present time none has been sanctioned.
The plan as outlined by Dr. MacNaughton at the meeting of the Conservative Association on Sunday last
is to employ men for two weeks, then
lay them off for probably two weeks,
thus giving other unemployed men a
chance to get a little time in. This
plan, we are given to understand,
will be continued all winter, thus
giving relief to a considerable number uf men. So far as the city of
Cumberland relief work goes, the
necessary forms have gone forward
but no word has been received from
Victoria. The first shipment of pipe
necessary for the work to be undertaken has arrived. Word is expected at any time by city clerk, Cope.
A party of twelve Cumberlanders
journeyed to the head of Lake Cumberland on Saturday last in a big
launch piloted by George Robertson
und celebrated the natal day of Mrs.
Dick Coe. The celebration was held
at the camp of Mr. and Mrs. Schrad-
er, of California, son-in-law and
daughter uf Mr. and Mrs. R. Coe.
Mr. Schrader, who has been ill decided to try Vancouver Island and located at a camp at thc head of the
lake and will be there for six months.
Abundant refreshments were taken up the lake, the party staying
there until Sunday night. On Saturday evening, games music and a
concert occupied the attention of the
party and J. Murray was awarded
the prize for being the best entertainer. Sunday, a big turkey dinner
was thoroughly enjoyed by all and
the prize for doing the most damage
to the gobbler was awarded to Joe
Picketti with Les Tnylor running
him a close second.
Card games, especially crib, was
indulged in and the prize for singles
was awarded to Mrs. J. Murray with
Dick Coe being only one point behind. In the doubles game, Jimmy
Murray and Mrs. Schrader were the
successful winners.
The party returned to Cumberland
on Sunday night after a glorious
week end. Mrs. Coe was the recipient of many congratulations from
her many friends on passing another
Nanaimo Team
Far Superior
To Eagles
The much talked of return soccer
game between Nanaimo City formerly Nanaimo Southend and Cumberland Eagles is a thing of the past.
There remains now. only the "post
mortems," These have boon numerous during the week and the executive or the selection committee of
thc Eagles has been subjeet to many
criticisms. However, we have nothing
to do with that and must report the
game as we saw it. Frankly speaking, though, Cumberland Eagles were
hopelessly outclassed and the visitors
were full value for the four-one victory.
The teams lined up with Nanaimo
winning the toss and electing to defend the Camp goal end. Right from
the start the visitor^ bore down on
the Cumberland goal and "Fat" Edmunds, playing centre forward tested Jimmy Walker which the Cumberland goalie easily cleared. Mid-
field play followed for a few minutes with Nanaimo being masters of
the situation. After a well combined
move Gray the visiting inside left
scored a nice goal after 12 minutes
play. He gavo Walker absolutely no
chance. Back again from the centre
kick came tbe visitors and the local
defence was sorely pressed, the
halves repeatedly coming to the assistance of the backs, Howay, Weir
and Conrod breaking up many a good
move. Their defensive play, however, did not help their forwards any
whn appeared loth to forage for the
ball. As an indication of how the
game went, the locals did not force
a goal kick until 28 minutes of play
had gone by. Then a decided change
came over the whole of the team and
for the next fifteen minutes or so
enjoyed as muoh of the play as the
visitors. Bartholdi brought a ray of
hope to the spectators when he rounded both the Nanaimo half and back
and centred beautifully, the ball going over to the right and was once
more crossed to the centre. A regular scrimmage near the side of the
penalty line saw Jimmy Knight tackle
a Cumberlander from the rear and
unfortunately must have pushed his
opponent. Referee Thoburn immediately penalized him the spot kick being entrusted to Gibson who beat
Aitken with a great drive. The teams
were even again and some good football was witnessed up to the breather. Fowler fooled all the opposition
and tested Walker who cleared but
before the ball could be punted down
the field thu home goalie cleared
again. Just on half time after a
combined move by the whole of the
visiting forwards, Watson scored, the
home goalie being unable to reach
the grounder. During the last twenty minutes of the first half Cumberland played good football and were
in the limelight continuously with
Howay working like a trojan. He
was the outstanding man on the
Cumberland line up.
The breather came as a welcome
relief as the home boys were beginning to tire.
Immediately on the start uf the
second half Nanaimo went down in
a body and several attempts were
made to score. Tobacco, however,
who became more confident as the
gome advanced kicked out lustily.
Back came the Nanaimoites and Edmunds tricking two of the home players scored with a great drive that
had Jimmy Walker beat all the way.
This upset the bome team and the
forwards, who were a disjointed
bunch before tho interval became
much worse. Tho halves tried repeatedly to get the forwards going
but with falling back to help tho defence found it Impossible. Howay
went inside rlghti McFarlane dropping into tbo half back position.
This move suited Alec Fowler as
Howay had proved too much for the
left wing and the old Cumberland
United man made several good runs
up the wing. In the latter stages of
the second half, Nanaimo tried their
pattern weaving and absolutely played rings round tho locals. The homo
spectators kept calling for the Eagles
to start their famous long passing,
but tho forwards, especially Gibson
and Bradley appeared to want lo
hang onto the ball with tbe result
thut a Xanuimo man robbed them
every time, Jock Campbell did try
hard on several occasions to get
through and bud tho hardest luck on
two occasions. In bis over anxiety,
however, he was ofton uut of position and was at times on tho extreme
wing. His idea was all right if any
of tho otber players could havo filled
the centre position for the time being) but it appeared that evory time
Campbell put the ball in the centre
from the wing, there would he no one
there. The visiting centre half was
invariably given the ball without any
effort to get to it himself. As the
game wore on the locals apart from

Park Expert Back
From West Coast
Dominion Parks Representative Sees
Long  Beach
After spending several days inspecting prospective park territory
on (he west coast of Vancouver Island, J. M. Wardle. representative of
the Dominion Parks Hoard is back in
Mr. Wardle was not disposed to
discuss the result of his investigations pending tho submission of his
report to the department at Ottawa.
Tbe commissioner, accompanied by
two members of the Provincial Lands
Department had a conference with
Aldermen Stone and Hamilton of
Port Alberni on Sunday last In regard to the Long Beach area as a
Federal park.
During the visit of Premier Tolmie
and Thomas Graham at Parksvllle
last Friday, Aldermen Stone and 1
Hamilton impressed upon them the
necessity of having Mr. Wardle visit
Long Beach while ho was in tho Alberni district. Both Dr. Tolmie and
Mr. Graham were very much in favor of having Mr. Wardle make an
examination of this West Coast resort, and the Premier Immediately
got in touch with Victoria and made
arrangements lhat Mr. Wardle should
visit this area at once. Last Sunday
evening, Aldermen Stone and Hamilton placed before the party a greal
deal of information concerning the
district and Mr. Wardle was supplied
with many panoramic photographs of
thi- famous beach. Long Reach Is
now attracting a great deal of Interest and will, undoubtedly be before
tho public eye more than ever during
next spring and summer,
About 11 o'clock Saturday night,
the Cumberland fire-fighters were
summoned by the sounding of the
fire siren. A quick turnout resulted
in a quick run, the scone of the blaze
being the disused Minors' hall. On
firet Inspection by the firemen, no
fire could be discovered, but not being satisfied tried again with the
result that Charles Webster who was
asleep in an out of the way place,
was found t<i be on fire. Webster
who was wrapped in a sweater and
an old blanket had evidently gone to

Which had fallen on the sweater and

Poppy Making
Helps To Make
Veterans Busy
Supply  for B.C.  li  Manufactured in
For tho past twelve months from
eight to twelve disabled Veterans
have been constantly employed In the
Red Cross Workshops at Victoria
making popples and wreaths for Ihe
Armistice observance. The disabilities of these veterans are sufficiently
serious to mako it Impossible for
tbem to perform other work, and
wen- it not for thc employment
which wreath ami poppy making affords they would bo unemployable.
During the past few years that those
men have been engaged in this work,
they have acquired great skill. Now,
wilh Armistice anniversary approaching, the test of public sentiment is
aim tit to be made, and the poppy
makers are anxiously awaiting ihe
Poppies anil wreaths serve a threefold purpose; they honor the dead,
provide employment for the disabled
and create fund from which sick and
needy veterans are assisted. With
these objects in mind the executive
of the Cumberland branch of tho
Canadian Legion is appealing to
every merchant to display a poppy
wreath in his store. The general
public is also asked to buy a poppy
and wear it on Armistice day.
The Canadian Legion i.* ready to
do its part and popples may be had
from any member, A large number
of tlie school children will also have
poppies for sale as in former years.
Nothing bul Ihe full co-operation of
grateful citizens can bc of any avail,
and, because thc making of popples
and wreaths means so much to the
veterans engaged in the work, thi
Cumberland veterans trust that no
store window will be without its
wreath and no person without a poppy.

It would be hard tn single out any
individual player on the Nanaimo I
side for special mention, the whole
eleven played good ball. For Ihe
home team, as usual, the half backs
were good, with Howay ploying a
groat game. Tho backs were good
and bad in spots and Jimmy Walker
in gotd was on a par with the half
backs. He could not be blamed for
a single shot that beat bim, but we
thought thot on two occasions he
should have come out to clear his
lines instead of leaving il to his full
backs. Tbe forwards were poor all
through the game, which undoubtedly mado it much harder for the
home defence. As an old time soccer
player used to say "lho best defence

First Dance
About thirty-live members of the
Comox District Canadian Club met
at the Native Sons' Hull, Courtenay
when Mr. John Bird, distinguished
Anglo-South African scholar, journalist and lecturer was the guest of
honor. Coming here under the auspices of the Association of Canadian
Clubs with exceptionally tine recommendations, Mr. Bird more than fulfilled expectations in dealing with his
subject, "Nonsense". The supper,
which was one of the best the club
has ever had was in the capable
hands of Mr. Percy Sadler, of the
Strand Cafe, Courenay, After supper, Mr. P. Leo Anderton, president
of the Comox District Canadian Club,
wbo was in the chair introduced the
speaker in his usual snappy style.
Mr. Bird has a line personality and
showed a remarkable grasp of a very
difficult subject. He illustrated many
of his points with extracts from
"Alice in Wonderland" and touched
lightly on the limericks of Edward
Loor. Turning to Mr. Anderton he
snid, "I think we should all, you and
I Mr. President, stand on our head
at some busy corner at least once a
yoar, not for the notoriety or the
exercise we would got out of it, but
for the good of our souls." "Nonsense" books were sold in large quantities said Mr. Hied anil quoted the
largo number of people who were reported to huve bought copies of
"Alice in Wonderland" after viewing
thc wor picture, "Journey's End".
Tho large number of these books
purchased in New York said the
speaker were not purchased by children but by grown ups who could
say thoy hod bought them for their
children and could road them, themselves.
Most of thoso "Nonsense" books or
books for children were written by
crusty old bachelors who loved children, but were ashamed to confess
it. During his address, Mr. Bird
pointed out the dual personality of
Lewis Carrol, who as the Rev. Mr.
Hodgson was on entirely different

i     The  properly  nourished  child  or
j the child with good nutrition is uc- i
tive physically and  mentally; he is J
happy and good-natured; his colouri
is good and his eyes are bright; hisj
appetite is good and his weight  is l
I likely above the average for his age I
| and height. '
j     The malnourished child, the child I
i who Is suffering from what we call
| malnutrition, lacks one or more of
the   characteristics   of   the   normal j
child.    His skin may be pale; dark
circles  may  be  noticed   under  his
eyes; he is either cranky and irritable
or dull; his appetite may be poor and
he is usually constipated; he is likely
below the average  weight,  and  his
posture is poor.
Malnutrition is not un uncommon
condition. It occurs in varying degrees of severity, nnd it is seen in
children from all types of homes.
When nutrition is mentioned, the
first thought is naturally as to what
the child eats, and many persons
jump at the conclusion that malnutrition means that the child does not
get enough to eat. The child cannot
be properly nourished without proper
foods, and in some cases, malnutrition is due to the child's not securing
sufficient food.
Rarely is an insufficient quantity
of food the cause. Malnutrition is
due practically always to an improper selection of foods. It may be that
over-indulgence in sweets, and eating
between meals may destroy the appetite for the proper foods at mealtimes.
The growing child requires a generous diet, because he is growing and
also because he is very, active. Children in their teens require more food
than the average adult.
Tlie growing child's diet should
include regularly milk and milk products, fruits and green leafy vegetables, in addition to cereals, eggs,
meat und potatoes.
Malnutrition is far from being entirely a question of diet. The most
common causes, outside of the diet,
are lftckof sleep, over-fatigue, lack of
sunshine and fresh air, diseased teeth
nml tonsils, and adenoids.
A child may be fed the right selection of foods in their proper amounts
but unless lie secures regularly the
long hoursof sleep which he needs,
he will not be properly nourished.
The hotly cannot nourish itself properly from the food taken in if there
is nol sufficient fresh air, sunshine
and exercise. Diseased teeth and
tonsil? simply poison the body and so
keep it malnourished.
In order to prevent malnutrition,
select a proper diet for the child, free
him from physical defects and make
sure that he leads a hygienie life.

Everyone agrees that it would be a fine '
thing to induce some large industry to
build a plant in British Columbia.
Some communities would be willing
to bonus such an undertaking, give it
a free site, or exempt it From local
taxes. But it is not bonuses that make
an industry successful . . . it's buyers.
Why not support the industries that
are already here and give them a
chance to help you pay the taxes.
Insist on B.C. Products every time you
make a purchase and you will b«
