ENDERBY, B. C. THURSDAY',  FEB. 5,  1920  0Utt  Subscription, $2 a year; 5c copy  Armstrong Loses in Hockey at  Vernon and Juniors to Endferby  It was a wild and enthusiastic luck this season, the intermediate  crowd that boarded the C. P. R. jand junior teams have managed to  special chartered for the occasion on hold up the standard of past years.  Friday last but it was a very sub-; The Intermediates went to Arm:  allied bunch that stepped off about'strong last week and cleaned up the  lour hours later after seeing their jG. YV. V. A. team and a few nights  favorites trimmed in. anf' artistic, later the Junior team, consisting of  fashion at Vernon to the tune ofJDonald Stickland, Jackie Jones, EL  6.1.     The   boys   were   feeling   none mer   Hassard,   Everett   Dunn,     Geo  too confident with several men on  tlie hospital list but a few hours before train time it leaked out that  Jim Fowler (Yes, he's the gentleman that deserted the team to take  a jaunt to the coast but he says that  ��������������������������� he-, is sorry now and will never go  back") was in Vernon and immediJ  ately the manager had him on the  ���������������������������ihnno and exacted a- promise from  him to help the boys out so there  was good cause for all the" jubilation. Those responsible for securing the snecial train are to be congratulated on the business like way  in which the trip was conducted and  we are pleased to state that, these  energetic citizens engineered the  job with no, loss whatever to those  tint put uri' the guarantee demanded by the railway company.  Tbe Armstrong boys  went on the  - "ro    determined    to    win    the    game  ' that   would   practically " clinch     the  championship but vou can't beat the  spirit  of  "do  or  die"  and' the  Vernon- team   certainly   "did."        With  their backs to'the wall it was neces-  = orv for Vernon to win from    Arm.  strone in order to get anvthing bet-  .' ter than  a tie for first place in the  league   race   and   even   with   a   safe  lend, thev took, no chances  and  kept  iii ling, up goals much "to the dlscom-  Porture of t'^e Armstrong fans.  As usual Vernon opened  the scoring, '���������������������������getting the  onlv  goal  that  was  "scored  during the first period,     but  shortly   after   the     second,   opened  Alex Phillips evened the count on a  !pnss   from   Darrach;    however,   Ver-  non   added  two   more     during ~_th'e  same session.    With the' score three  to  one> against them  the Armstrong  backers   were   still   very   optimistic  pnd everybody was predicting a win  ���������������������������\   on account of the results of previous'  games, 'when   our     bovs     generally  scored  the winning goals in the last  period.     When   the  team   took, the  ice again  it was up "to them to play  a  strictly  offensive  game because  if  they   couldn't   chalk   up   two   tallies  it   didn't   make   any     difference   If  Vernon  got twenty more, which ac_  counts   for  the" latter  scoring  three  . times   for   whenever   a  Vernon   man  broke   away   there   was   nobody'    to  stop   him,   the  defence  men  ail   being up on the" forward line.       Armstrong  had  the  misfortune  to  loose  Hardy during the second period ow.  ing to an injury to his shoulder and  a  substitute  was forced  to take his  .'place.       With-   the    visiting     team  working hard to score the game naturally  grew  strenuous  and  a  more  liberal   use  of  the  referee's  authority would  have helped matters.    As  it  was  one  player  from   each   team  visited   the   penalty   bench,   In   each  case  for tripping.  Even- if the boys didn't win they  proved that there Is one_ more  ���������������������������feam^in^the^valley^thTat^can^take-a^  defeat with a smile- on their faces,  each one claiming that it was "the  law'of averages that beat them" and  "they couldn't win all the time."  The Vernon boys showed themselves  good losers before and on Friday  night it was demonstrated that they  aro good winners which is just as  important.  Although the boys are joking  about their defeat and we saw a  bunch of hockey paraphercnalia in  one of tho store windows on Saturday with a big sign "For Sale" on  them and also a sign iu the post-  office calling for tenders for a new  goal tender, they realize the serious,  ness of the hockey situation and lt  will be a more sober bunch that  turns out to hofkey practices from  now on.  Tho line up was as follows:  Armstrong���������������������������Horrex, goal; Fowler,  point; Murray, cover point; Dar.  rach, rover; A. Phillips, centre;  Hardy and King, left wing; Schubert, right wing; Lingings and  King, spares. Vernon���������������������������Fuhner,  goal; Reinhart, point; Klausman.  cover point; McLeod, rover; Norris,  centre; Albertini, left wing; N. Forrester, right wing; N. Simms, Greyell and Carew, spares.

Steel Fisher umpired the, game,  which was a fast one and well  fought.  ENDERBY  G.  W. V,  Strong   Feeling'   in   Connection   with  Foreign   Population   in   Canada.  INTERMEDIATES AGAIN WIN.  On heavy ice and with a. sympathetic and boosting audience, Enderby  Intermediates played the Armstrong  G. W. V. A.'s a return game on En.  .derby ice Wednesday evening and  again won with the score 4-2. The  Armstrong team played hard to redeem itself from the defeat of last  week, but Enderby's stick handlers  ivere too much for them, both in  fast skating and   passing.  ARMSTRONG ..AGAIN"   WINS  Enderby Team  Defeated in a Hard.  Fought Game by, a Score of 7-3.  Tn four days, three Armstrong  hockey teams dropned three games,  last week and it looked as if the  Armstrong hockey sun was setting,  but, on - Mondav night the seniors  came through with an easy win over  E^r'erbv and when the game finished the Armstrong team were on the  lnnE end of 7_3 score. This will be  Enderby's last, appearance.this seal  son on local ice and it was a much  different looking team that played  here ctbe other night than the one  that held Armstrong to such a close  score on the opening- game of the  hockey . season -here. Both - teams  were badly crippled by the loss of  two regular players but nevertheless  some "very-pretty plays-'were' executed.

Gilders'  letter in your last issue: (1) I understand a  tenant cannot be put out of a house while snow  is on the ground. (2) When Mr. Kirschner was  ordered by the police to remove his belongings  he owned himself thai he had no papers to show  that he had bought the .property in question.  (3) Mr. French, who originally owned the property, told Mr. Kirschner before he bought that  Mr. Kent had rented same till spring.  Yours truly,      E- A. Bobcrtson,  Sec.-Trcas. G. W. V. A.  Edilor Okanagan Commoner:  Pear Sir: If you desire thc whole truth to be  known in connection with the JCent-Kirschncr!  affair here it is: The property was in the agent's  hands to sell and he made the deal with Mr.  Kirschner and notified mc by mail of same. He  also understood the agreement I had made with  Mr. Kent, namely, that he was to have the place  until spring. I did not give Mr. Kirschner to  understand that he could have possession in a  few days. T. E. French.  A long yarn is sometimes produced from the  threads of conversation. This seems to be the  case in the Kent-Klrschner controversy. "> Too  many stories have been-told in connection with  the whole matter. Jn the above communications, each apparently endeavoring to be accurate, there is a distinct contradiction. Mr. Robertson fells us that Mr. French told Mr. Kirschner^ that Mr. JCent had tlie property rented, be-  TcW'lv^Kh^lTnW^bc^  us the deal was made by his agent and that hc  knew nothing about it until be was notified by  mail by  the agent. These statements  are  like  many others in connection with the deal.   Much  has been  made  of  the matter of papers���������������������������the  property was leased to Kent, but no papers were  given until after thc trouble arose; the property  was sold to Kirschner over thc lease, and no  papers were given  to Kirschner.    On the onc  hand wc have the statement of tbe party who  made the deal with Kirschner that there was an  understanding  that Kent was   to  move oil' as  cjuickly as he and Mr. French could find another  place for him to'.move to.   On the other band, {  we have the statement' that there was no understanding that Kent would move off before thc  expiry of his lease.   And neither lessee nor purchaser had anything to show as to what position  he held', except tliat of possession, which each  claimed.    We hope with these explanations by  Mr. Robertson and Mr. French, the matter will  end as we do not propose to give any more space  to it.   The real point at issue, and the only point  raised by the Commoner in the first place, was  as regards the constitutional right of the G. W.  V.  A.  delegation   taking  upon   themselves   the  offices of judge, jury and executioner, and, willy  nilly, entering upon the property and executing  a judgment they themselves imposed.    Any action of this nature savors too much of mob law  to win the  support   of  any   citizen   of Canada,  and we hope it will be the last our local returned  boys will pull off.  Armstrong, Feb. 3, 1920.  Dear Editor,���������������������������Some weeks ago  we read an editorial entitled "Vac.  cination" and feeling confident of  your support I wish to acquaint you  with   what  has   taken   place  here.  Yesterday morning the health inspector, Dr. Van Kleeck, attended the  school and, without previous advice  to the parents, vaccinated the children by the score! He intended beginning with the Receiving Class  inst admitted for the present term,  but the teacher, Mrs. Dimmick, refused to allow him to vaccinate one  child in her charge until the parents were communicated with first.  Unfortunately the other teachers  did not take this stand. Mrs. Dimmick deserves the heartfelt gratitude of the mothers of these child-  ������������������ren, who were sent to school for the  first time. A most humane and  praise-worthy proceeding was it not  to run the risk "of frightening (at  least) those little ones at the beginning of their school life? In one  instance a- child who had been vaccinated the week before by Dr. Van  Kleeck was again vaccinated" yesterday"! In another instance three  children in one family, who were  vaccinated before Christmas were  also revaccinated! Had the parents  been advised previously and permitted to choose their own physician  this could not have taken place.  Aside from the question as to  whether vaccination is desirable and  beneficial or otherwise for the  health and protection of people, we  consider that the method followed  is nothing less than criminal, and  an outrage against the liberty of the  people. Had the instructions from  the Board of . Health related to a  herd of cattle instead of children  such a procedure would be tolerated. '  My husband interviewed two  members of the Board of _Trustees  who assured him they had nothing  whatever to'; do with it, as it was the  doing of the Health Inspector. Is "it  possible that such a criminal offence  should go unpunished and nothing  be done to prevent a repetition of it?  At once we took our boy, of 6%  years who has just been prpmoted  to the 1st Primer Class, and placed  him 'under the. care "of Dr". Barrett  here, as we .consider it a serious  matter. - He, our boy, is a "splendid  specimen "physically and mentally,  as _any~ one" in, Armstrong- can tell  you. Notwithstanding this ;fact rhe  was "so thoroughly frightened that  he, has scarcely-touched food since!  I visited his class last week, at Mrs..  Dimmick's invitation, and" was appalled to find that I could count on  fewer than ten fingers the number  of healthy looking children in that  class of forty or more; many were  absent . besides through illness. I  imagine the result of vaccination, in  a  small  body already unhealthy!  Dr. Barrett assures me that the  danger lies, not in the vaccination,  but in the lack of proper care of the  natient afterwards. He said in effect, that if this proceeding would  lead to an investigation of the sub.  their apathy, and indifference to the  .iect and awken the people out of  ordinary laws of health it would be  a blessing. Quite true, but already  the mischief is done.- Had the order of the Board of Health been  made public, and a lecture or series  of lectures given at which one parent must be present to receive" information and practical advice on  the , precautions necessary and pro-j ton, deceased  per'intelligent care to be taken of i ���������������������������  the child much needless anxiety and j  trouble might be averted. These  ilecturesf=if=given=at=-once=by-=a���������������������������relis=  able physician or graduate nui;se  would still be a greater blessing to  the children and save the situation  to some extent.  Will you therefore please use  your influence through the press to  carry such a programme out as soon  as   possible?  Trusting I have not encroached  too far into your valuable time, I  thank  you.  Yours "for the welfare of the  children,  (Mrs.) MARGARET .TONES.  P.

Part of the Enderby band was in  attendance to lend zest to the evening and surprised the people with  very acceptable music after so many  months  non-appearance.
