three goals to one, all goals being

having no difficulty in turning the
ball past Grier. This was four minutes nfter the stnrt and put lots of
pep into the home forwards. The
Courtenny defence steadied up with
the result thnt givo nnd take play
was the order for a time with exchanges nbout even. The local backs,
Brown and •Bickle were playing a fair
game, with thc latter placing one
or two nice pnsses to his half or forward. Only once during the early
period did the home left back let in
the visiting forwards, but it almost
■spelt disaster, Auchlnvole being far
too anxious, his final effort going
harmlessly past tho post. Gradually
thc home team took the upper hand,
the halfs playing vory finely with
Weir, easily the pick, Time after
time the Eagles' forward line moved
'up in good style but poor finishing
spoilt several good chances, drier,
the Courtenay goalie was tried on
several occasions but cleared in fine
style, one of his saves under the
cross bar being real good, During
a raid on the visiting goal, the ball
was handled within the dreaded area.
The resulting spot kick was entrusted to Howay who put the hall past
the post, From the goal kick, play
was transferred to the opposite end
where Brown cleared well. Courtenny tried to break through on the left
immediately after, hut Bickle lying
well up broke up what looked like
a promising raid. Quickly the ball
travelled up the field, the right wing
giving Gibson in centre a good chance
which he promptly took scoring with
a hard drive after thirty-live minutes of play. One minute after Courtenay scored through Auchinvole
after two attempts. One minute
from half-time Howay from thirty
yards out sent in a high cross shot
which Grier just managed to get his
hands on but had tho misfortune to
put the ball through his own goal,
It was tagged for a counter anyway.
Score nt half time: Cumberland, 3,
Courtenay 1.
Second  Half  a   Blank
The second half started off with
Courtenay pressing, four corners being forced in quick sueeesfWfc These
were easily cleared and play transferred to the opposite ond where
Grier wos tested on numerous occasions. The visiting goalie, however,
was safe .one of his saves nt the side
of the post being real good. Grier
without doubt the best goalie
amongst the juniors developed in the,
district. It was good to sec "Chuna"
in the Cumberland goal applauding
the work of his rival goalie. The
home team in this half were far
and away tho better team but tailed
to find the net, the final whistle
sounding with the scores as at half
For the home team, Weir at left
half was about the best man on the:
field, with tho other two halves giving
good support. Tho backs wero good.
Bickle, who has been absent from!
football for two years gave a creditable display and will, no doubt improve. Tho forwards were good in
midfleld, but weak in front of gonl.'
The visitors wero best served by
Grier in goal, many of his saves being brilliant. Thomson at right
back was good and tho Courtcnuy-
ites undoubtedly passess a real good
half back lino. Larson worked hard
all through and ho aud Howay had
many a good tussle. Young Searle
the other wing half played a very
useful game as also did Strachan at
centre half. The forwards were very
weak. Robinson nt centre forward
being prone to hang onto the ball
too long, a style of play that will
never be successful against the fast
stepping Eagles. Auchinvole at inside right was about the pick, but
apart from scoring a good goal did
not accomplish very much.
J. Thoburn refereed to the satisfaction of all.
This week end the Nanaimo Southend Seniors will provide the opposition when a good game should result. The kick off is timed for two
game in tho last fifteen minutes.
Nat says Henry Watson, a Cumlierland player with the Nanaimo
team will line up with his new tenm
thus giving local fans an opportunity of seeing how Henry blends with
his new team. Watson is considered the best find in the Pacific Coast
League this season. The champion
Royals team on Saturday last concentrated on that point and Watson
was absolutely shadowed nil through
the gamo by two of the Westminister
plnyers. It will be interesting to
see how the Cumberland boy stacks
up against his former team mates.
Mr. Bevis says 'given favorable
weather we are looking forward to
a good game and many of the Nanaimo soccer fans have expressed their
intention of journeying up to Cumberland for Sunday's game." It will
look like old times again. It has
also beon reported that Sandy Strang
will be seen on the Nanaimo team
from now on.

This territory, the delegation
stressed, contained fine stretches of
coastline and alpine heights, and
could be developed in conjunction
with Long Bench, the famous beach

Canal. The province, it wns represented, has expended a considerable
sum in tho acquisition and development of Strathcona Park, but hod
not been nblo to proceed with throwing open this area to the public by i
means of mote adequate road communications.
Tho delegation asked that the Government cede title to the area in
question to the Federal Government,
and work for its immediate development ns a national park. Premier
Tolmie assured tho party its representations would receive careful consideration.

finally went down to Victoria to urge
the starting at onco of road work in

A Reply to the
Cumlierland Welsh Society
The Cumberland Cronies' Burns"
Club tuke this opportunity of replying to the "Explanation" appearing
in lust week's Islander re the benefit
for a member of the Welsh Society.
The facts of tho caso, so far as the
Bums' Club is concerned, are few
and simple. A member of this community was in need of assistance. It
was decided to hold a benefit whist
drive and dance under auspices of
the Burns' Club. The tirst announcement from the club appeared on October 18th and stated that the affair
would be held on Saturday. October
25th. The Welsh Society had already
advertised a benefit to take place on
Friday, October 24th. For some
reason or other no benefit was held
on the 24th and the Welsh Society in
their "Explanation" state that "this j
member's caso had been under dis-!
cussion since May and they were J
only awaiting the completion of their;
hall before holding a benefit." The!
Burns' Society would point out thatj

A very favorahle report was received
and without very much discussion,
city clerk Cope was instructed to fill
in the necessary forms to bc presented to tho government for tho unemployed relief plan, The council propose to spend about ?C0n and it is
hoped to got a like amount under the

out by tho council ail that the city
fathers can do is to look after, as
far as possible, the unemployed within the corporate limits of the city.}
It is hoped to be able to stnrt the
work as soon as possible.
As far as work on roads in the
vicinity go, the board of trade is still
hopeful that the Cumberland Lake-
Alberni road will he undertaken.
This it is pointed out would solve the
unemployed problem for the whole
of tho districtc.

Under the vory able directorship
of Miss .loan Holllngaworth, thc Cumberland branch of the Canadian Legion staged a very successful comedy. "Aunt Lucia" at the United
Church Hall on Tuesday and Wednesday last. There was a very large
attendance' on both nights, tlie hall
being taxed to iis capacity. Tbat
the play was thoroughly enjoyed
could bi' judged from tin- roars of
laughter.      The   play   has   a   college
setting and reminds one somewhat of
the old. old favorite. "Charley's
Aunt." Fraser Watson as "Aunt
Lucia" was great and hu was very
ably supported by the remainder of
the cast. Thc player:; were all local
people and considering thut only two
weeks were occupied in rehearsing

the hnll has been completed for many
many weeks and weekly whist drives
etc., have been held. Surely something could have been done between
May and October to relieve the plight
of a fellow member. However, the
Burns' club did not. ut any time, consider that any ill-feeling would be
created by the holding of a henefit
whist drive and dance. That the benefit was a success goes without saying
and the Society tako this opportunity
of thanking all those who assisted in
making it such a success.
Thc Burns' Club do not desire to
enter into any lengthy newspaper
or other arguments and so far as tho
Club is concerned tlu- matter is nt

has been accorded a member of the

Campbell   River   Fall*
('. L. Harrison, Victoria, in introducing tho report of thi- committee
on the Strathcona Park water powers
gave two reasons for iis acceptance,
The cost of developing the power at
Campbell River Falls would be high
because of the valuable timber tbat
would bave to be cut and for olhei
reasons, so that the cost of power developed would be greater than tbe
cost at which the same power could
be developed from coal in that locality, be stated. Development would
contribute toward causing unemployment among the coal miners of the
district. Ho was supported in bis
contentions by T. Carey. Cumberland, and W, \V. R, Mitchell, Nanaimo. P. B. Fowler objected to adopting tho report until tbe Victoria
board, which ho represented, had
been given time to examine and consider it. and Kenneth Duncan supported this request, bul the motion
for adoption carried.

The resolution in favor of the Comox-Alberni Road was passed without opposition, as was also that in
favor of reaffirming former declarn-
tions in favor "f the Sproat Lake-
Tollno Road, Mr. Fowler pointed out
that thc original declaration had
been made on a resolution moved by
Rev. Montague Bruce. Mr Harrison
stated that he considered the Comox-
Alberni Road the most valuable projects brought before the meeting.

rHEKE is nc» statement more fallacious than
"you ean buy cheaper out ul' town." Yet
surely ii is nm uncommon in Cumberland.
Every town uiul city has its population of out-of-
town buyers, but fortunately, in most cases, for
the home-town merchants, the home-town itself
and the residents in that town, that proportion of
out-of-town buyers is not very large.
It is different in Cumberland, and frankly
speaking, we don't like to say it. Every Monday
morning, or nearly every Monday morning, many
a good dollar is son out of this but*); to the mail
order houses and mostly for goods that could
easily have been bought right here. There may
be Instances where then' have been apparent
economies through buying away from home but
how tlo the books balance at the final reckoning?
If the purchases have been made by mail what
saving is lefl after the time, postage and carrying
charges are deducted'.' Is the railroad fare, or
gasoline bill added to the shopping expenses on
those bargain hunting excursions to the nearby
city or larger town'.' Is there not also value in
dollars and cents for worry, delay aud disappoint-
ettts that is inevitable in mail order buying. We

There is au unselfish community side of this
buying-at-home question whirh cannot be ignored
by tho good citizens. People who believe in Cumberland must believe in its merchants, who are an
integral pari of thoir town. Buying at home
serves a double purpose; when people buy at
home, through their buying the homo-town merchant prospers because of tho prosperity of its
merchants, public improvements follow municipal
prosperity, and lho public benefits from the public
improvements. Can anybody afford to trade away
from home when there is always a means of getting what they want at homo and at as good or
better prices than the same goods cost away from
home ?
Keep on buying at home and the merchants will
not stop buying for you.
SWIFT and forceful action taken by Mr. K. It.
Bennett, as sunn  as the  Conservatives came  into
,.., tt Ottawa, to stop future shipments of coal
from Soviet Kussia, is the subject of commendation by
Tin- New York Sun in an editorial which we republish
today. It recites the events which have led up to such
in embargo a'td indicates that the course taken is the
correct om. Soviet Kussia has embarked on something
in the nature or au economic war against the rest of the
ivorld. That country can only be met w.ith measures that
■ lie will understand, and Mr. Ken nett has no doubts
il.'nii the mentality of the junta which rules at Moscow.
He had the choice, ns The New York Sun points out.
either to impose a duty on Hussion coal or an embargo,
nnd he chose the latter course.
Under tlo- Liberals Russian coal was admitted to the
country duty free. The imports of Russian anthracite
increased from 0,204 tons in 1928 to 117,405 tons last
year. Thi.- hade affected the Canadian industry adversely
and Mr. Bennett promised redress during the course of
elei lion campaign. lie has effected this purpose in
nritfht fasliiun, Mr. Bennett has created a precedent
which shows him to be a man of action and possessed nf
Itleal acumen. As The New York Sun says: "Canada
has told Soviet Kussia tbat drastic action will be taken
ainst a nation that sells its products to establish credits
her than primarily to build up profitable trade."

The eye, which ih the moat precious organ of the special senses, may
.suffer from disease or injury in spite
of tho natural protection afforded
it. The mechanism of sight also may
become disordered. Abnormal conditions of the eye usually occur during certain age periods; for example
cataract ordinarily develops in middle life or later.
The lens of the eye is a crystallike structure. The rays of light
are focused by the lens on the retina
If the nutrition of the lens is interfered with, there is a change in the
tissues which make up the lens,
which change results in the loss of
some of the crystalline or transparent character of the lens.
The loss of transparency means
the beginning of opacities, and this
change usually begins at the margin
of the lens. As long as the opacity
is limited to the margin, it has littlo
or no effect on the sight. As soon as
it spreads into the line of direct
sight, vision becomes less clear,
As this process continues, the lens

there is, as a result, a great change

popularly known as 'second sight".

! The cataract itself is a degenerative change; it means that the eye is
growing old, whether prematurely or
otherwise. Once the condition is

| the rate of development may be
checked by removing the underlying
causes. Many persons with begin
ning cataract go on for many years
without having their sight sufficiently interfered with to the extent of
making an operation necessary.
Prevention of cataract means the
keeping of the body in good health,
j the prompt removal or treatment of
[ focal infections, and the use of proper glasses.
