Barnes of Whitemarsh Valley, Philadelphia, former Spokane Country Club "pro," the professional golf champion who has broken many course records, is about to break another which promises to be a world's record, for it is said he will receive $15,000 a year from the Broadmoor Golf Colorado Springs, to which ing to change the coming spring Guy Sanson* f Great Falls, who did quite a lot oi" wrestling in Southern Alberta last winter is up tbia way again, gunning for some ol the heavies.

Guy only weighs 152 as against Andersen's 190, but he knows every trick of the game 'and Anderson will have to watch every move or he'll find himself flat on his back in jig-time. *   Anderson and Frank Taylor met at Vulcan last Wednesday night Anderson winning in straight falls, 30 minutes and 14 minutes. * * * A little bit of news that will interest Letlil.'ridge fans is that Frankie K.O.

February 2t;th, of Miss Jennie Searle and Air. Maurice 1'tygg. Mr. and Mrs. Hygg are w*ell known and very popular among the young set of Burdett and Grassy Lake. They will reside at Burdett. j A movement i.s not foot among the ladies of town to send another shipment of boxes of good things to the boys at the front who went from Grassy Lake. The farewell party given for Mr. and Mrs. "Walters Wednesday night was a very pleasing affair. A good number were present, and the party was very much enjoyed by all. Mr. and Mrs. Walters . expect to leave soon to "reside at New Dayton. They have made a host of friends since their stay here and will be missed very much in social circles. Mr. Frank Perry and bride, formerly Miss H. A. Reid, of the staff of the Union bank at Grassy Lake, arrived Wednesday and will take up their residence on the groom'i farm south of town. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Walker returned Thursday from their honeymoon. E. A. Brinson, manager of the Farmers' Elevator has resigned and -will leave Monday for northern Alberta. He is succeeded by J. W. Anderson, of Barnwell. Jomen and William Turnbull received the aad news Saturday of the death of their mother at Calgary. They left on the afternoon train to attend the funeral. On Thursday Miss Fern Kunze and Mr. Roy Beatty, two of our most popular young people, took the train for Taber, where they were quietly married. They have a large circle of friends and we wish them all happiness on their journey through life. H. L3. Sands of Lethbridge, was in town Wednesday on business. We are having soft spring weather is very much like the general up. The snow has melted into which stands on the ground in in some places there is 50 and 75 acres in just one sheet of water, as-suring us of moisture for the land for another season.

Unheard-of Salary Nothing like this has ever hefore been heard or even dreamed of among golf professionals, t'-nle-ss these salary figures are considerably exaggerated, after the manner of actresses' and singers* pay, the . natural question will arise whether a club is not going it protty steep when it sets such a high-water mark for a professional's compensation. If the example should spread, who knows but that in time no professional will look at anything under $n.u00. This astonishing salary for its professional at once gets the Broadmoor cJub Into (lie limelight, even before a ball is bit on its links, but it has another scheme, it is reported, for keeping in the spotlight. As Chick Evans, the amateur and open champion, has taken out a nonresident membership in the club, the Broadmoor people may send Barnes and Evans next summer in a month or six weeks* exhibition tour to raise money for the American Bed Cross. Welt Paid at Whiteniarsh As Barnes was said to have received between $7000 and $8000 a year from Whitemarsh Valley, it -was believed the club had him for -a certainty for a number of years, tout It seems the Broadmoor club has been formed by a group of western men to whom money is no object. By winning last summer the Philadelphia open title and the western open title and holding over from 1916 as the champion of the Professional Golfers' association Barnes is the outstanding figure in the professional golf -world of America. In the winter Barnes is at the Palmo Cola club, in Florida. ALLEN CUP GAME HELD UP BY STORM Winnipeg. March 4.-There was no Allen Cup elimination game between the Winnipeg Ypres and Saskatoon Qtukers here last night. The Saskatoon players were held up at Clavct, Susk, by the worst snow storm of the winter. The train was due here at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, but at noon was nine hours late. This necessitated a postponement of the game until Tuesday night. - - - v1 F decorated, by managed the of the dinner, LOCAL RESIDENT WOULD HAVE BOUGHT DEBENTURES i Bow island Review) The Bow Island school trustees have been successful in disposing of the debenture* for tho new school to Messrs. W. Ross Alger and Co. of Edmonton at IkV.i bearing interest at six and a half. The total amount in volved is $1(>,U00, repayable in twenty yearly instalments. The bonds will be furnished by the purchaser. This ia a very satisfactory prico and the. trustees are to be congratulated upon their sale. At the same fime we think it is *a pity that local residents are not given the opportunity of making a bid. The investment is a good one and probably there wouald bo more than one ready to take a part of the debentures if given the opportunity. Indeed one of our residents intimated that he would have taken the entire issue, it>]"ieeial to the Herald) Aetna, Mar. 1.-The people of the Aetna Ward, gave Bishop N. W. Tanner, and family, an enthusiastic farewell social today in the Assembly hill, which was tastefully the Y. L. M. I. A. The Relief Society serving and preparing the menu consisted throughout of farm products. There were 215 present, in attendance, including President E. J. Wood, Elders J. F. Parish, W. H. Caldwell and M. A. Coombs, also Patriarch 11. M. Brown and wife, who are near relatives of the retiring bishop, visitors from Cariiston. After lunch was served, a program was given conmprising speeches, songs and recitations, which were enjoyed by alt. '  The Ward presented Bishop Tanner wiih a gold watch, and Mr**. Tanner with a brooch, to Mr. A. C. Jensen, the first counsellor to Bishop Tanner, a watch, and to second counsellor. Mr. (\ F. Jensen, a not of "Every Man's Encyclopaedia." All ihc speakers expressed the highest esteem for the retiring Bishop, and regrets at losing bis services (In the Ward. Elder J. Henry Tanner, is to be the next Bishop and he has the heartiest support and highest esteem of all members of the Ward, consequently, we are assured that he .will bo successful in his new calling. In tho evening, a dance was given, free to all, at which there was a good ottondnnce, and everyone enjoyed themselves to the fullest extent. LABOR MEMBER PUIS f ( 'o.vtin'ukp from Front Page) said against him than the criticisms on his report of the conference at Ottawa he- would still have confidence in him. Speaking in praise of the work of the Hospital Commission and Howard Stutchbury, he thought that they should have such organizations all over the province. It was time they should organize for the men who would be coining back, and as to the land settlement proposals they should remember that while they would desire to have their own men located as near as possible to railway communication there would be soldier settlers from other parts of Canada who would be located on land in the northern part of the province. Conscripts Not Cowards Alluding to the drafted men under the Military Service Act, Major Eaton repudiated the charge that they were cowards. Various domestic reasons had kept them from enlisting but he found that there was very little difference between these men and those who had come forward voluntarily. He had examined quite a number of them, and he had found them keen to do their duty, and he felt here they would give as good an account of themselves as the other recruits. Victory Loan James Ramsey, East Edmonton, alluded to the Victory loan, and said that they must make up their minds that when the next loan was put on the market it would be a greater success than the last. That was the view taken by the committee who had handled tho last loan, and the people of the province and the Dominion were beginning to realize that the success of the loans was a matter in which they and the association of the country with the war were vitally concerned. Changing Skins Harry Atkins, Didsbury, caused a laugh by his opening observation that some of the members of the house were showing a snake-like characteristic by crawling out of their old akins into new and independent snake skins, and the laugh was increased by his comment that "some of the new skins ill-became them." Speaking of the conference at Ottawa he said he was not disappointed. The criticism of tho premier, he declared, was unfair and his critics knew It. The blame lay with the Dominion government. It was In that direction action should be taken, and the case of the western prairie provinces should be placed before the next parliament, and a strong ! effort made to have the long deferred justice done. He appreciated all that had been said by the soldier member but what they wanted from them was some solution for the problems the country would face with the soldiers returned. Labor Member Speaks Alex Ross, Centre Calgary, said that he sympathized with the premier because he himself had been invited to Ottawa, and there was just about as much enthusiasm over hi3 report when he got back. He was forced to the conclusion that they had been asked to Ottawa because the last election had been so undemocratic that the government wanted to ifind out how things were. Alberta needs, continued Mr. Ross, her natural resources now more than ever if they were to take care of the returning soldiers. He regretted that Ottawa had placed no concrete proposals before the country, and although state control had been declared impracticable he asserted it was the only way in which profiteering could be combatted. Urging better en- forcemeiu of the labor laws in Alberts Mr. Ross a.-ked the houso not to for* get that the .soldiers' problem ia aui industrial problem. When they conitid* ered that profiteering was not taxed,, labor would have to pay for this wait as other wars by increased hours o< labor and lower wages. Alberta Plan Best Observing that so far a great fluccetal of the work of demobilization and re*J distribution had been made in Alberta# the greatest success In the Dominion, Mr. Ross referred to the disabled sal* diers' board, and threw out as a oon� crete Hcheme for dealing with the re* turned soldiers the establishment of si commission that would have power t&% prepare a plan for the development o? their natural resources, take steps to* wards industry development, and a* inventory of all public works th*0 would be required in the province. If they had such an investigation they would have some idea as to what they would be able to do when tha< mei| came back. , Urges Labor Exchange* Mr. Ross urged measures being talc*1 en for the protection of soldiers' dependents, and for securing for soldiers" children a secondary education; ftleo ac advocated the establishment ot labor* exchanges for the distribution ot labor, and saldf that if they could not have a department of labor established as in other provinces someone ot the commissions already in being could be utilized for the nnrpose. ,J On the motioirof W. ML Day id eon, North Calgary, the debate was adjourned. Lethbridge Charter Up First readings were afterward* given to the following bill*: Medicine Hat charter, Alberta Pharmaceutical act, Lethbridge charter, Edmonton charter, and Calgary charter. A resolution expressing the deep regret of the legislature of Alberta at the death of the late Premier Brewster, and tendering sympathy to his I relatives and the people of British Columbia wras passed at the session Monday afternoon on the motion of Hon. Charles Stewart, premier, seconded by George Hoadiey, Okotoke, leader of tha opposition. NEW TOWN SUPERINTENDENT (Bow Island Review) At a special meeting of the town council last week the matter of the vacancy made by the resignation oC Supt. Bruce was further considered, and eventually tho application of H. 3r\ Cook of Medicine Hat was accepted.

DISTURBED THE PUBLIC PEACE (Bow Island Review) A melee which occurred at the east end of town on Saturday last between Fred Campbell and Olo Lein appears to have afforded considerable enjoyment to a large portion of our resident population, judging by tho crowd which assembled at the court on Tuesday to hear the evidence In the case. The first part of tho proceedings was taken up with a charge laid by Fred against his friend Ole for | creating a disturbance. This was withdrawn. C. H, Bell, J.P., then heard a charge preferred against Fred Campbell by Constable English and in turn against Ole Lieu, both for creating a disturbance. Ole was reasonable and in pleading guilty to the charge practically acknowledged his guilt in disturbing the public. Fred p r o v e d rathe r unrei a s on able an d claimed that all the disturbance was made by his opponent. Both were, however, fined $10 and costs. Fred threatened to appeal, but after frequent and copious applications of "Copenhagen" docided ho wouldnt'ft.
