Spectators  at the   local  rink
were treated to a hockey game
and broomball  match on Saturday evening.   The hockey match
was between two local teams and
a very  interesting  two   periods
were "played.   Goaltender Bryan's
side won by a large margin.   The
broomball that followed was very
amusing.   The young ladies had
brooms and the gents held^ a reversed hockey stick in their left
hand, not being able to use their
right.   A basketball was used as
a puck. The girls were very adapt
with  their   brooms and  scored
twice ��� to' their   opponents  one.
An movation was introduced during the latter part of the game
when the gents went on the ice
minus a skate.   This made the
play  funnier .than  ever.     The
ladies were pleased ��� with ' 'their
well earned victory.   Dr. Francis
handled the bell in- both encounters and was kept very busy, more
especially in the latter, when the
stickhandlers had to be continually penalized.

1 he Grand Forks rink came in on
Tuesday morning and entered in

Monday afternoon  and evening
and until late Tuesday' evening
tlie curling rink was a busy place,
ihe ice was very keen but tricky
which made the games more interesting.     The  knights  of the
stanes  and besom  played  their
best  and there  was  very  keen
competition,    the   Walters  rink
having to go an extra end on two
occasions to decide the winners.
The club provided delicious refreshments and  the ladies kept
the table looking appetizing most
oi the time. -
At the close of the bonspiel

over the first prize to D. Burpee

An Inspiration To Canadian Youth"
All America "is ringing villi praise of George. Young, tlio 17 year old
Toronlo boy who won the great swimming marathon between Calalina Island
and the mainland of California, successfully negotiating, this stretch .-of icy
wiiter in a contest wherein one hundred others failed, including some of the
world's mo si renowned swimmers. It7vas a wonderful achievement, and, following flic performance', of John 'Miles, of ^Sydney, Nova Scolia, who set a'new-
world's record last year hi winning the Boston Amateur Athletic marathon in
his first, race over tlie 26 mile course, and the enthusiasm-wliich Canadian
hockey players are* arousing in the big American cities, is haying the effect
of further directing attention to Canada, as a land which produces the
finest types of sturdy young manhood.
Through his great feat, George Young not only wins a substantial financial
reward, butjio leaps into atliletic fame. He will be honored, cheered and feted,
and his uamc will long bc remembered in the annals of great feats of courage,
strength ami endurance- '.'���������:' > ,     "���'���[   ���
liut it. is not because of his victory alone that Canadians should be proud
of George Young and find'delight in doing him honor. Rather our deeper na-
���liona] pride should rest upon the qualities of mind and heart and character
which this youth displayed in approaching the lianl trial to:-which he set
himself, and the noble impulse whicli dictated his action.
A poor boy, with no relatives but a.widowed, crippled mother to whom he
was devotedly attached,.George Young voluntarily sacrificed his amateur
standing as a swimmer and staked his all on this one effort. He did so not
because of a personal desire for fame or money, bal in an all consuming desire
to be able to take his crippled mother to California' and provide her with the
means whereby she might regain Mier health.
The boy's strength of character, his grim'determination,.and his', willingness lo sacrifice were clearly shown when, lacking the necessary railway fare
from Toronlo to California, he started to make the journey on a patched up
motor cycle and doggedly pushed'his way as far as Arizona.   A boy of loss
goal of ills desire. Had* Georgo Young no.t achieved fame as -he":has -done, it
is safe fo say that, in any event, he would havo made a success'-of his life
and in whatever sphere he might choose. ~        ���
���Premier Mackenzie King rightly expressed the sentiments of,: tho peoplo
of Canada when, in extending congratulations on behalf of the Government
, and people of the Dominion, he said that this country shared with equal pride
George Young's success and his beautiful tribute to his mother and all that
disclosed the secret of his splendid achievement.
Such an achievement'in the face of obstacles to be overcome that might
well' daunt the stoutest 'heart-is- an inspiration lo the youth of Canada. Thousands of Canadian boys who win'never- hope to be great athletic champions
and whose names will never be found on the lips of millions ol! their countrymen, but who in meeting the problems and difiicullies of everyday life, and in
shouldering the responsibilities that may be forced upon fliein, do so with the
same force of-character;'the same determination, the samo willingness to
sacrifice self for the good of others, are equally heroic, and of thom Canada
will be equally proud. .
George Young has builded better than he knew.,,His mother has borne
testimony io the cleanness of his young life, and George has iu spectacular
fashion shown all Canadian boys that a clean life, free from bad-habits
and dissipation, pays.  He has brought rorcibly home to all tho truth of the old
. adage thai Avhore there's a will there's a, way. In bringing fame lo Canada, ho
lias likewise brought something of far greater and more lasting value, an
object lesson which will mightily appeal to the imagination and love for {ho
heroic in every normal Canadian boy.
This is a real.national asset, because it is only through the cultivation
and development of those same traits which made George Young a winner that
the boyhood of Canada, or df any country, can realize full success iu their .endeavors no matter, what direction they may take, or how humble.tliey may be.
It requires exactly the same qualities to make a real success in.anything ir
life as were required to successfully swim Catalina channel, y-
Seeds Lying Dormant for Forty Years
Will Germinate
Tho seed of some of the troublesome
varieties of weeds show a great
tenacity of life. They will resurrect
long after they are supposed to have
been killed if not thoroughly and skil-;
fully disposed of. The Michigan Agri-!
cultural College is engaged, as recorded in Bulletin No. 72 of the Dominion:
Department of Agriculture on Crop
Rotation in an experiment to ascertain
definitely how many years tho common weed seeds will lie dormant in
the soil and then resume growth
where suitable conditions come about.
Weed seeds are mixed with sand ana
placed''in uncorked-pint bottles that
are buried twenly inches below the
surface and one taken tip every fivn
years. Tlie experiment which can be
continued for 100 years has already
boon conducted forty years. After being this-,length of time in the soil it
has been found that black mustard,
pepper grass, pig weed, ragweed, .wild
primrose, common plantain, purslane
and curled dock will still germinate.
Some of these weeds removed in the
earlier years failed to germinate but
did so in later years. Ragweed failed
to germinate in every trial until after
11 had been forty years in the soil. As
the authors of the bulletin; referred
to (Messrs E. S. Hopkins and W. C.
Hopper of the Field Husbandry Division of the Dominion Experimental
Farms) suggest it is apparent that
there, can be no let up in the war
against weeds, especially if the land
has once become infected .and'that
prevention of thcir getting a start is
preeminently the most important
method of weed control. Neglect for
one year may result in'a plague of
weeds for a life-time and longer.

Robbers Take Heavy Toll
A Billion and a.Half is Stolen Each
Year in United States, According
to Estimates    ..      -
Merchandise, -valued" at $1,490,000,-
000 is taken out of legitimate channels
in the United States each year by
fraud, theft and robbery and sent back
into tho market through a system of
"fence" to undersell honest dealers.
How the "fence," or receiver of
stolen property operates to supply the
liason between'swindlers, burglars and
highwaymen is' told in a voluminous
report issued by the prison committee of the association of Grand Jurors
of New York county. :        .
In arriving at the huge total of
losses the report gives the following
tabulation: Merchandise frauds, $500,-
000,000; credit frauds, ��265,000,000;
robbery, theft 'and holdups $100,000,-
000; burglary, $525,000,000;
' The report also points out the weaknesses' in existing laws which make
the illicit dealer almost immune from
prosecution. ���'.''.

There is therefore no foundation for

���__Animals have souls, if tlie memory

This conclusion was reached by the
* French Academy at a session which
was attended by thirteen of lhei"Forty
Immortals." v

whom arc members of ihe Academy;
participated in the discussion. The
allied leaders in the war .whicli separated so many human souls from
their bodies were d��i/ided in their,
opinion in some respects, but accepted the principle Lhat animajs have
souls. ,   .
ft all came about in this way. The
Academy, wliich is undertaking a revision of the French dictionary, took
'up the word "memoire," meaning
memory. After several minutes had
passed in deep thought Louis Bartliou,
Minister of Justice, spolec up.
' "Human Beings alono keep the memory of passing events," he is quoted as
saying, " thus the word 'memoire' applies to the human race-alone."
Then the deep voice of Marshal
Joffrc boomed out: "1 had a dog called

In Featured Role
Curling, which is akin to the summer game of golf in its appeal and its
physical demands, is'' rapidly becoming one of Canada's ,most popular winter pastimes. The ideal conditions
which prevail during the winter season haye gained for the Dominion tho
name of "The Curlers Paradise". Nearly every province has its branch of
the Royal Caledonian Curling Club of
Scotland, the parent body of the sport
and every sphere of social life in Canada is represented among its devotees.
Apart from the intense interest, a-
roused by the game itself, curling
wields other and more potent influences. Wherever curlers meet there
is formed a brotherhood of good fellowship in which men from all walks
of life fraternize and in which the
honors go to him who makes the best
shot. The best curler is the man who
"plays the game" and the qualities so
developed are reflected in the success
of the individual in the social and business life of the country.
Just when the first curling match
took place in Canada is uncertain. It
is claimed that the Highlanders who
served under Wolfe played the game
at Quebec and there is little doubt
that curling was played in other parts
of Canada before the formation of the
Royal Montreal Club in 1807. Although Quebec- city claims the distinction of the first match, its senior
slub was not formed until 1821, while
the first club in Halifax is just over
a century old having been founded in
1825? About the. middle of the last
century the clubs in what is now
known as Quebec ami the eastern part,
of Ontario were organized into a
branch of the Royal Caledonian''Club,
and this branch has now grown until
it now comprises G4 clubs (of which
IS are ladies clubs) and a* total membership of about 4,000. With the
founding of clubs in other parts of
the Dominion, provincial branches of
the Royal Caledonian Curling Club
were organized. In round numbers
there are 20 Clubs in Nova Scotia, 15
in New Brunswick, and 115 in central and western Ontario. Of those in
the Ontario branch at least six are
ladies clubs
The popularity gained by curling
in the Prairie Provinces of Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and. Alberta is reniiark-
able. The sport in the Canadian west
dates from about 1S76 when a few
games were played on the Red River
in Winnipeg. Almost immediately a
club was started and the first club
matches were played in a tent on the
present site of the Grain Exchange
Building. Soon afterwards a permanent rink building *was erected. In
1888 the Manitoba Curling Association, which is affiliated with the Royal Caledonian Curling Club of Scotland, was formed by six curling clubs
two from ^Winnipeg and four from other points in the province. In 1900
there were 87 curling clubs in the
western provinces and in 1926 Manitoba alone had 146 clubs with a mem-
..'���.cr.sbip of over 5.056.*: The organized clubs in the West affiliated with
the Manitoba Curling Association are
ot present as follows.

Curling is one of the leading sport
activities in the Canadian National
Parks. The great scenic areas of the
Canadian Rockies have gained an
*i,mipoi'tantJ place among the summer
resorts of the North American continent and their famie'as winter playgrounds is rapidly""" spreading; "At

park, Alberta, the annual winter carnival attracts many1 devotees of but

Perhaps the only part of the North
American continent tliat possesses
an authentic collection of folk-lore
songs is the province of Quebec. Four
hundred years - ago when . the. first
French' explorers and settlers came to
the shores of the St. Lawrence many
of these soncs were on their lips and
in their hearts and they have never
died out.- It is to-the honor of the
��'veuch-Ch*na>-lia*n race that they ha^e
never; to sen allowed to fade fiom thc
remembrance of the "people, ncr has
the flood of ephemeral and rubbishy
popular songs of the day overwhelmed them. Originally sung at tlio
court bf the French monsrehs, the**/

were-brought-with.'the eaily settlers

Only vilhin recent years have we
be^un to realize,, how rich is the
Ircasiuy of lovelj*- melodies associated
with the folk son^s of Canada. Thanks
to nen like Charles Marchand, inter-
pi c-lei of the French-Canadian
'chanson", the&e folk songs have
taken on new life, and before long
they will be available for the English
speaking population of Canada,
owing to the eflorts of John Murray
