From the general line of talk, it
looks as if Beaverdell will be deserted
on the 14th, as everyone will be heading for Greenwood for the celebration
iu connection with the opening of the
new Hospital.
Several local residents have invested
in cars during the past week. L. Johnson and J. Jackson purchased new
Fords, while J. Johnson bought a Mclaughlin. Findlay McDonald also
bought a new Ford truck, and Lome
Shaw a Star roadster.

showing on his claim on Wallace

to tie the real thing,* The, Chrysler

new plant'running ancl are getting
great results.
The local nine and a good crowd of
rooters motored to Rock Creek on Sunday for the ball game and'at the end of
the fifth inning when the score was
-IO to 1 in favor of Rock Creek, it looked as if the game was over. It was
just about this time, however, that
Beaverdell started to'play and didn't
quit' until they had run up a score of
twelve. The local boys were without
their regular pitcher, - but Johnny
Moore did some good pitching in. the
first part of the game and great credit
is due Lome Sj'haw for pulling the team
out of the hole in the last two innings.
y The How-Do-Yo-Do Club gave a
most successful dance on May 1st and
the crowd proved to be far too. large
for the size of the hall, but everyone
seemed to have a. "whale ,- of i time,
even the dancing: room was crowded..
There were musicians ; to burn that
night aud the music was all that could
be desired, as in addition to the regular
club orchestra, we had Jas. Bush and
Mrs. B. G-. Ommanney, violinists, E.
DeLisle, drummer and Mr. Parsons, of
Chesaw, with his sasaphone. The
club members are indeed grateful to
these artists who helped so generously
with the music.

success and all helpers, ,no matter on
how large or small a scale, will have
an inward feeling of satisfaction that
their assistance is part of a tribute to a
noble'cause and many-a sile"nt blessing, unknown to them, will be their
unsought reward.

Lionel Barrymore is
Most Versatile Players
Perhaps no other actor alive today
has played such'a variety of roles as
has Lionel Barrymore. On the stage
and on the screen, he has demonstrated
a*i versatility that is amazing, and he
invariably gives to a part a finished
performance that stamps his acting as
a work of art. But, he's Barrymore���
a name rich in traditions.
Barrymore can be seen on May 14th
ancl 15th at thc Greenwood Theatre,
where he is playing the role of Baron
Bonelli iu "The - Eternal City," a
pichirization of ��Sir Hall Caine's story.-
This Frst National picture was produced in Italy, and with a stellar cast
that includes, in addition to Barrymore, Barbara La Marr, Bert Lytell,
Richard Bennett and.Montagu Love.
As Baron Bonelli, the famous actor
is called upon to interpret a role thai is
extremely diflicult, and which makes
demands upon all the emotions known
to the histronic art. His is a big role
iu a big picture.
The proceeds of the two shows wilt
be donated to the Greenwood and
District Hospital. Friday's show starts
at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday's at 8:15

that whatever their opinion might be

viewpoint It might be better to keep
out of that, vast entanglement. The

Will Give Three Scholarships
Four Years' Tuition at McGill Offered
By C.P.R.
Montreal.���'Announcementl Is made
from the office of the vice-president ot
the Canadian Pacific Railway here
that three free scholarships, covering
four years' tuition ��� in architecture,
chemical, civil, mechanical or electrical engineering at McGill University,
are offered subject to competitive examination to apprentices and' othei
employees enrolled on Uie permanent
staff of lhe company and under 21
years of age, and the minor sons ol
for inheritances in--Russia at ��5,000.
Henceforth Russians may inherit tor-
tunes without. II mil.
In spite of the government's severe,
opposition to private trade, many, Russians In recent yeais hnvfi accumulated tortunes but have -withheld them
from investment in .'.-internal enterprises, ihe government thereby' losing'
the benefit o/'active capital. It is lo
remove this condition that the new
measure was introduced,   ,
The presumption Is that parliament
will wish to end the suspense with as
little delay as possible. When the
house meets the government's position
will be promptly challenged. A day
or so of debate,'participated, in. by a
few leaders, should suffice as n preliminary to the test vote. Afterwards,
an adjournment wiil be i-nade whatever the outcome. Parliament will
not hang around for Christmas and
New Yeai's, but come baclcln January and go ahead with Its business.
With the question of supremacy settled lhe sessional programme will be
very light and confln?d to essentials.
The situation will permit of little else.
The desiie for another-general election
is not pronounced, and mippoiterg of
tho government may cause it to be
deferred far, bin at the present the
prevailing view Is tbat a renewed appeal to the country within a very short
lime is inevitable. ,
