WOULDN'T SCOOP EYE OPENER (Vancouver Saturday Sunset) A gentleman in Calgary sends me a tobasco flavored account of a certain function alleged to have been given a the residence of a" bank manager in that city. My correspondent explains that, as the genial Bob Edwards himself took part in the festivities he could not "blow back" on his friends by the account, as well as a-really amusing" illustration of the. affair .which my iritnd sends me, in the Eye Opener. I have several reasons for not .using the matter which .my Calgary cor- respondent has gone to so much trou- ble to send me. The first'is that I coald not think ...of invading the field which Mr. Edwards has created and so ably.monopolized in the Eye 'Opener. The other is that people in Vancouver, not educated to the standard of Calgary's high-spot mor- ality, could- not expected to un- derstand or appreciate the humor of a mixed gathering assembling in a bank manager's house to hold high ONTARIO CAMPAIGN "Since rthe matter of incorporation ivas 'first mooted in. our town many inquiries-have been made as to what benefits, would derived should s.ucb a seen be tulcen and. it is found they j Head on.
