The Greenwood Hockev team

Forks on the latter's ice by a
score of 4 to 0.

thrills, The first period was
scoreless. Greenwood forced the
play in the second period and in
five minutes had piled up a four
goal lead. Puddy and Galipeau
getting one each, while Morrison
made two counters, The Forks
tried hard to score but their
aggressive efforts proved futile.
In the last period Greenwood

Grand Forks Wins 5 to 4
The second Intermediate hockey
game between Grand Forks' and
Greenwood was played on local
ice last Friday night," before an
enthusiastic crowd, and it was a
very clean, exciting."and anybodys
game until the end. Grand Forks
won by a score of 5 to 4,-the
visitors getting all the bleaks,
while the local -boys had hard
luck in shooting. Another ^.hing
they left the defence too wide
open making it necessary for H.
Royce to stop some unnecessary
shots. Greenwood stepped out
by getting two goals in the first
period to the visitors .none...-The
local, boys had"far -tbe'e'dge
in this period, but ia the second
the visitors pulled themselves together aud scored, four goals to
Greenwood's .one. Docksteader,
Atwood and Winters were .the
shining lights. In the third
period both teams were determined and very evenly contested.
Green wood evened fhe tally, but
shortly afterwards Grand Forks
got their 5th and last goal.
The local boys, tried hard to even
up matters but .without avail,
they_ being too eager shot wild.
The game was well worth seeing,
was fast and'above all referee
Francis kept the game clean.
After the'game the Ladies
served coffee and sandwiches and
a dance followed.

Professionalism killed lacrossP, the Canadian national game and one of
"tlio finest of aH'field games. A qjiarter of a century ago er-iry town and village in-Eastern Canada had it's lacrosse clubs, aad tliottsnucis of boys and
young men. participated in its health-giving activities. Then the idea of commercializing the game was conceived, and its blighting effect is seen in. the
practical disappearance of the game. *      ,   _
.Canada's winter game, hockey, is going tiie same way. ,   Professionalism
.nourishes-"for-st. while, kills the amateur game, arid in hiLliug off amateur

players for iirofessional ranks falls off.       ^ -
It has beeu thought that professional baseball was so ilKSr.oughly'.well organized and so deeply entrenched in the United States that, it could withstand
almost anything.'' Hut a recent, survey, of baseball made for the National
Amateur Athletic Federation has established beyond dispute that oven base-"

It is soen. therefore,'that th'e advent,of professionalism not only kills
the sporting instincts of the people, turning them into namby-pamby "rooters"
for a group of paid entertainers instead of active particlpa.nts' in tho game
themselves, but it is demoralizing to the games as such. 'So long as a city

The Royal Succession
Res-ult of Discussion in  London Club
Is Interesting
There "was  a prolonged discussion
in a well-known club I he'Other night
as to  the royal succession. ,    Since
many learned people   took   part, and
the'decision arrived at is not now in
dispute, it i3 worth-recording.     It entails a fairly wide-hypothesis,'but the
tact is that on the death ot His Majesty  the King  (which  we all hope
is very far distant),   should   in"   the
meantime   the   Prince of Wales, the
Duke    of   York;   Prince Henry And
Prince George have died'without issue '(which we also pray is a remote
contingency);  lhe  throne  would not
go to the Connaught branch.
If all these unlikely disasters.were
to happen, Princess Mary would become reigning Queen of England, just
In the same position as Queen' Elizabeth, Queen Anne, Queen .Victoria and

Thc agitation against tho proposed

spirit of many workers so embittered,
that the Socialist partj executive-decided to undertake the necessary s^teps
for getting a referendum on this question.
This executive acted after numerous protests of laborers, and white collar folic had arisen throughout the

was that the German republic, now
plunged iu its worst unemployment
period, ought not to give to tlie former
Icalser the millions of marks which
would lender him one of Europe's
^ There has been a heated controversy
as to wliellier or not the property To
be returned really belonged to the
reich or lo Wilholm personally. A
careful canvas of the property confiscated during the 19IS "ievolution" led
finally to the conclusion that Willielm
was entitled lo regard several million
dollars' worth of it as his own.
Tlie matter then came up for ratification by the, 'Prussian diet, /but at
that moment  the clamor thioughout

ably filled for the last five years.
; His wife, who was Lady Elizabeth
Northcote before their marriage in
1913, was the second daughter of the
Earl and Countess of Iddlesleigh.
She died suddenly about two., years
ago, and it is" not at present known
who will fill the role of chatelaine at
Government House, Victoria, when
Mr. Bruce assumes. office. He is at
present in the Old Country,' and will
not be sworn in until his. return to
Canada.. 7        '    v
Lieutenant-Governor Walter; C.
Nichol in paying tribute to the personality" of the man who will .succeed
him, Mr. Bruce, at the annual banquet of the Canadian Legion in Victoria last week, said: .
"Of Mr. Bruce an-'old and dear
friend of mine, I can - say he is a fine
man, with a big and a warm and an
ImpulsiveTeart, andThcair^pfedicf
that he will have the most successful
tenure of office that any lieutenant-
governor has ever achieved."

themselves.. This year, the committee jnet the wishes of
the visitors by extending the annual* event to cover two
weeks',' from February 3 to February 17 inclusive.
The most expert skiers and snow-shoers"'in the
mountains, will thus be freed from competitions to take
charge oi parties of visitors on pleasure bent. They have
selected five depots within a radius of two, miles .from
Banff, so selected to allow return over a different route

derby from Calgary to the top-of-the-world, the Great
Divide in the heart of the Rockies, and'back to Banff,
a distance of 186 miles, 50'oh the prairies, the remainder '
in the mountains. This three day race will pass through
Banff on the morning of the second day and.finish in-
Banff at the ski-jump when these events are being run off.
./While waiting for the arrivalof the teams visitors will
witness Canada's premier ski-jumpirig.competition on the
new^BanS jump. Many, acknowledge this new, jump as
the most picturesque and spectacular in Canada. Set on
the side of a mountain as it it, the jumper begins the slide
far "tipon the mountain side, and seems to soar to earth
through a lane of pines and spruce";' The wooden take-off
carries liim into the air sixty feet above the heads of the
spectators below. The new jump is built for-leaps into
space-offrom 40 feet to 180 feet. '".
