WOLVES are not the only things wives of servicemen have  to watch these days-���birds too, can wreak havoc with  plans of. mice, men and brides.  Not jail-birds but flying  birds, namely seagulls.  (L^flocal girls, brides of .seryiceinen, were victimized  ^at V^a4couver recently-���by a "seagull. The two girls, who  went to Vancouver to meet their returning husbands, took  a suit at the Grosvenor Hotel and accumulated enough food  coupons to guarantee a good feed for their reunion. Heading the list, was a half-pound of butter which they placed  on the window-sill of the suite for safe-keeping when the  refrigerator went out of order. The moment their backs  were turned, a preying seagull swooped down, grabbed the  butter and flew off. Needless to say, the reunion dinner  was held at a restaurant.  Home Better Than Paris  By Mrs. Geo. Cormack  HOME  IS  home,  and Paris  is  Paris. This is indelibly printed  on the mind and heart of Dennis  Matthews, son of Mr. and Mrs.  J. W. Matthews of Davis Bay  just recently returned from  overseas occupation duties.  During an informal chat with  Dennis, we were taken along  on the wings of fancy and given  a bird's eye view of places  and conditions, luxury and  want, architecture old and new.  sculpture and art.  A boy went away~-a man  returned and his Canadian  home is better appreciated.  AUXILIARIES  COMMENDED  Praise without stint was given  the   Red  Services  extras   and   entertainment,   all  along the way.,     ���      ���  A descripition of the Frisian  Islands as the idolized summer  resort of the wealthy, was aptly  given as only one who have lived  there could give it. Its absolute  impregnability had not counted  on the British Bomber, and it  was shattered, leaving only two  or three of it's magnificant  hotels, which later housed the  occupation forces, greatly to  their delight.  Dennis made good use of  leaves and has pictures, souvenirs and memories that enrich  all with whom he comes in contact. He has the willingness and  no   other  ability y to rnake them live, for  Cross and Auxiliary the pleasure of those with whom  that    provided    food    he finds himself.  But  Paris   is   like  place. Paris is Paris!  As Dennis takes us from the  castle of Louis XVT to the palace of Fontainbleau, (in Fon-  tainbleau forest), where Napoleon made his last stand, and as  the quiet forest is brought before our eyes with its broad  clean streets, and its park laid  out like a vast garden, adorned  with statues, temples, fountains,  lakes and waterfalls, we close  our eyes, and we make a mental  reservation "we will go to see  Paris."  Dennis is at present on two  weeks leave here, visiting with  his family. When his discharge  comes through, he will return  to his previous civilian employ- suffered no ill-effects  ment in Vancouver.  chairman of the meeting.  Mr. Bracewell was introduced after a few brief remarks by the chairman.  He dealt with the mechanism  of the many factors that have  to be considered, such as the  area to be incorporated, the  number of people in that area,  and the revenue derived froth  direct taxes. He stated that it  was not desirable to incorporate  over 1000 acres. The proposed  area is slightly more than a  mile long and a half mile wide  ���considerably less than the  recommended maximum. The  question of dykes was brought  up during the question period  and it was stated that at tbfc  present ime the dyke was not  a direc responsibility of the  provinvial P.W.D.  .,....XoJbe assumedjqf proper; main-..  tainence  and full protection  a  dykeing  commission  should be  established, it was stated and it  might be arranged that the village commissioners could act in  that capacity. It was also stated  that if the tax payers did not  ask   for   too   much,   the   taxes  need not rise. Taxes, would only  go up in relation to the improvement   made,   and ��� if   improvements were not desired, the village should not incorporate. The  speaker was well received and  many opinions in favor of incorporating have been expressed.  Another public meeting will  be held in the near jfuture when  the question will be decided.  Mr. Bracewell was conducted  all over the twonsite and stated  that if the town was incorpor-  aed we could have much better  drainage and make the town  much more attractive.  The meeting closed at 10 with  God Save the King.  Call Tenders on  Telephone Line  Enlarging their present telephone service, the government  telegraph dept. has called tenders for poles on the new line  to run Gibson's Landing to  Pender Harbour.

Meredith, Roberts  Creek.  Your Ad-Briefs in  THE  Coast News  THE COMMUNITY Centre idea  is sweeping the country like  a great tidal wave. Already we  see successful results in many  cities, towns and rural districts.  Wherever a community centre  project is operating we find an  enthusiastic, wide-awake' group  of people. These people have  right to be proud of their  centre, however small it may  be. Plenty of spunk, and an  eye to the future are necessary  to commence and carry on such  a work.  It is astonishing to discover  the amount of careful planning  and serious consideration that it  requires to place the organization on a sound basis. One must  bear in mind those famous  words���"First things first."  Those of us who have been  working on the board of the  provisional committee of the  Sechelt community centre, have  learned a great deal. We know  that Sechelt would benefit from  such a centre in more ways  than one.  Some years ago, a splendid  group of what we call the old  timers got together and really  really started and carried on  started arid carried on for quite  a time some nice social evenings.  Today, more* than ever, Sechelt needs a community centre  which should be a part of its  educational life, bringing together groups of all ages and  special interests. A program  should be planned to meet the  needs and interests of all members of the family���father,  mother, children, young people  and old people, as well as to  provide ^activities; in which all  P.. \ ,'' r���*> ���>'" ���]'������ Bt y..;     ���:<'.'>'��v<     --.'/iv    '.,.,l?.,-u���/_  /M!IHllilB!��IIIIHIJIlB��!B[DlMI[|[n[[[Bnil���!ll_  Up To Date  Drug Service  to meet your needs.

Sechelt has been drifting  along aimlessly for too long. It  is a fact that Sechelt is composed of hundreds of houses  scattered here and there without any centralized activities,  really looking ahead and trying  to get comewhere. If it were  not for one or two groups which  have struggled along���in spite  of some of the citizens-^-we  would not have a community at  all.  The Canadian Legion is an  excellent example of these  groups, having persevered for  years and taken an active part  in the people of Sechelt in  many ways. Mr. Frank French  has been treasurer of the Legion  for twelve years. Very few of  us can claim this length of service to Sechelt.  The success of the Sechelt  community centre depends upon  each and every one of us, and  we shall soon have an opportunity to prove our worth as  responsible citizens.  Which classification do you  come under���a grouch and a  pessimist, or an open minded  citizen who is looking forward  to taking part in the many fine,  worthwhile activities that lie  ahead?

SocietyOperates  As Co-operative  MANY people assume that the  principle of "co-operatives" as  applied to business enterprise  is something entirely new. That  such is not the case is demonstrated by the latest report issued by directors of the Family  Assurance Sociey, Vancouver.  The Family Assurance Society  has been operating successfully  for over 20 years and provides  members with guaranteed insurance security on a non-profit  basis. This is possible through  rigid application of the true  spirit of mutual co-operation.  Its directors, well-known B.C.  men representing all walks of  life, are elected from the membership and serve without sal*  ary. They are W. F. McClintock,  office and traffic manager, Kelly Douglas and Co., Vancouver;  W. M. Fairweather, O.B.E., farmer, Port Hammond; Joseph  Oliver, barrister, Vancouver; A.  Tom Alsbury, high school teacher, 6975 Cypress St., Vancouver. President is Dr. D. A. Dunr  bar, physician and surgeon,.and  the manager and secretary-treasurer is Mr. Alex Mackenzie,  former banker. >     r  Their annual report reveals a  steadily increasing- membership. ^  During nearly a quarter of a"  century of business, the society  has paid out over half a million  dollars to beneficiaries. A low  mortality rate, due to an exacting medical standard for admission to membership, has resulted in the building of substantial reserves. Membership is  open to men and women not  over 47 years of age who are in  good health. Further particulars  are given in the Society's advertisement elsewhere in this  issue.  Illegal Trapping  Brings $300 Fine  FOUND guilty and convicted  under provisions of Section  2A, Game Act Regulations, Carl  Martin, trapper at Deserted Bay,  Jervis Inlet, was fined $300  when he appeared in Powell  River police court on February  15. The charge arose when Martin-was apprehended for illegal  trapping on .another person's  registered trapline.  Section 2A of the Game Act  Regulations requires that all  traplines be registered with the  government and that trapper*  confine their activities to their  specified territory.

An applicant living three miles?  or less from a school must include with his application a letter from a  doctor or a responsible school official recommending instruction by  correspondence.  Three months9 work is sent out at a time in order to provide adequate  material so that the pupil will not be left without work during any part  of the school year. The pupil is encouraged to complete a lesson a week.  This will enable him to complete his! grade in the school year. When a  lesson is completed it is sent to the school for correction. After it has  been marked it is returned to the pupil with directions concerning any  necessary corrections. As soon as a pupil satsfactorily completes the work  of a grade he is promoted to the next grade and may commence his! new  work immediately.  FOR ADULTS.���In addition to the regular service for school children,  courses in the elementary school subjects are provided for adults. There  are no enrolment or tuition fees for these. An adult may enroll for a complete course or for a partial course of the subjects in which he is interested.  Adult students who have the opportunity of attending night schools! are  expected to do so in preference to enrolling in the correspondence school,  but all those to whom educational facilities are denied are welcome io  enroll.

Friday, February 22,1936  To  Canadian  In Polar  Secrets of Frozen Northland to Unfold  Before Onslaught of Army Scientists  THIS WINTER the "Cremation of Sam McGee" will have  nothing on Exercise Muskox for "strange things done  under the midnight sun", as Robert Service aptly puts it.  The Muskox expedition will pierce the Arctic circle and the  land of the midnight sun in a dozen modern snowmobiles���  and receive food and fuel from airplanes whose compasses  will refuse to work near the ���  magnetic pole.  In spite of the combined  elements and all the frozen  north can offer to oppose  civilization's advance, the  small party of modern-day .  explorers will bounce over  snow, ice and mud for 3,100  miles in 81 days to emerge  with secrets the north has  guarded' jealously since history began.  If Muskox is successful���and  the quality of its men and  equipment indicate that is can  scarcely be otherwise���then, besides opening .the Artie, these  secrets wrenched from the barren lands will simplify the advance by land and air info the  mining; and forest areas of Canada where;climates are less vigorous and the lure of natural  resources as great or greater.  TIME IS RIGHT  The time for such a scientific  expedition    is    right    because  stocks of cold weather materials  needed by the armed forces for  winter warfare are still available���cold    weather    clothing,  equipment,   vehicles   and   aircraft. In addition to materials,  there is the backlog of methods  learned by large-scale air and  parachute supply used in Burma  and France,  and the new  technique   for   navigating,   especially by radar. Muskox has  had a vanguard too, in winter  exercises   Polar   Bear,   Eskimo  and Lemming and the combined  experiences of these pre-deces-  sors will be useful. Finally, because  the   armed  forces  have  made these  tests  and  because  they now have the only, trained6  personnel available,  the Army  and RCAF are the logical choice  to   conduct   Muskox.   Civilian  scientists   and   observers   will  check their findings and estab-  r*^^aSSS^i^r9--^^SP^ along the  down the Back since 1834.  Next stop is Perry River  where an Eskimo operates the  lonely Hudson's Bay Post. After  Perry River the trek will cross  50 miles of open ocean ice to  the nearest Arctic Island, Victoria Island, which is larger  than Great Britain, Here at  Cambridge Bay, the RCZP*  ship, St. Roche, is wintering-^-  the same St. Roche that conquered the Northwest Passage  two summers ago. The force will  pause for about nine days at this  port of call, while a detachment  makes its way north to Denmark Bay, to take magnetic observations close to .the magnetic  pole. During this pause in the  schedule, the base forces will  leave Churchill for Yellowknife  and Norman Wells to be -in  closer contact with the expedition in the last half of its journey which should be less difficult by comparison.  TO COPPERMINE  From Cambridge Bay the  force' travels 200 miles across  the usually smooth ocean ice to  Coppermine, then strikes inland  to the first, trees since leaving  Churchill. At Great Bear lake  the force visits the uranium  mine at Port Radium.  "Spring and break-up will be  approaching now with warmth  and nearly continuous daylight, and the country ���will-'be  no longer uninhabited and uh-  travelled. The route lies across  the ice of Great Bear lake to  Norman Wells and up the Mackenzie River past Fort Simpson  to Fort Nelson over a tractor  trail left from the building of  the Canol pipe line. Mud and  slush will impede the vehicles  now, but they should cross the  main Mackenzie and Liard  Rivers before the spring breakup and reach the Alcan Highway at Fort Nelson late in April.

Near Baker Lake the force  will pass throught the rarely  visited land of Musk-ox���the  strange animals from whom the  exercise has taken its name.

Be-  feathered hats were the vogue  in the gay nineties, and in  1946 they are a fashion first  again. The hat above, which  appeared in EATON'S Spring  and Summer Catalogue of  1894, compares in style to the  smaller editions on display in  our millinery department today. But whether it's 1894 or  1946, people in Western Canada know that the NEW styles  always appear in EATON'S  catalogues.  T.  EATON C��  uwrso  Miilill PAGE 6  .

POWELL RIVER  JIM   CRAIGEN,   Correspondent  "Roberts Creek school will have  a school childrens' credit union  as soon as arrangements now  under way are completed," said  Mr. Butcher, president of the,  B.C.

WITH PARIAMENT getting back to work, and  a labor surplus looming on the home market  the people all over B.C. have every reason to  expect a renewed road program and some honest workmanship and results. The road problem has been and is still being kicked all over  the province and into the Peace River block,  and it seems to us that if the same energy was  used to meet responsibilities as'is used by many  of our leaders to dodge them we should have  today one of the finest road systems on the  continent.  It may come as a shock to our trusted M.L.A.'s  soon to meet in Victoria, but we on the Sechelt  Peninsula, and along the lower coast and taking  in the Howe Sound Area have a road problem.  We haven't one single road deserving of the  name or the traffic it bears, and some very important parts o�� this area.haven't any roads,of ���  any nature at all���not even bad ones.  It is time that every official and unofficial  body in this area took it upon themselves to let  Victoria know that we need a road rebuilding  program here. It is useless to watch the scrapers  shift a little bit of surface dust back and forth  when  every car,  truck,  bus  and taxi driver  knows with every one of the 5,000 chuck-holes  to the mile that the road-bed is shot and needs  rebuilding. Repairs are not lasting because  there is no foundation suited to take the type  of repairs in use.  Since the different road officials up here  are not getting results from their suggestions  as to what needs to be done we take this oppor-  unity to remind the public-spirited public  works department that we need a ripper over  all our roads between Halfmoon Bay to Gibson's Landing, followed by a gravelling foundation, followed by grading and oiling.  It is worse than feeble to proclaim that suitable'road building material is not available at  low cost in adequate quantities. It is lying on  the beaches waiting while the logging companies, (which must take care of their equipment at their own expense) build roads of  which the whole area, is Jealous, using as their  basethe'much?despised'beach'grkveTl  Personally we hope that the taxintrucH  drivers group realize soon that their proposed  delegation will get no results while they negotiate from this end of the Strait of Georgia,  other than develop the letter writing ability  of their secretary.  Scout-Guide Week  FOR 170,000 Canadian boys and girls, and their  parents and friends too, the week of Feb. 17  to 23 has a special interest. It is Boy Scout-  Girl Guide Week in Canada. The observance  of this week is not an appeal for funds, but  rather a week dedicated to the purpose of telling the public how these movements came into  being, how they seek to serve boys and girls,  and why in less than forty years they have  spread to every part of the world, embracing  within their fellowship millions of young  people of every race, color and creed.  When Lord Baden-Powell first introduced  Scouting in Great Britain in 1908, little did he  think that the ideals of a happy useful life suggested by his program, would within a decade  be adopted in nearly fifty foreign countries, in  addition to more than forty parts of the British  Empire. It is unlikely too that he realized that  his program would sweep across -all*barriers?-.of -m  race, and color and creed.  Therein liesmueh Of the greatness; arid influence of the Boy Scout .and Girl Guide Movements. The sound training for good citizenship  they provide is well recognized. The contribution they make toward solving the juvenile  delinquency problem is widely known. That  boys and girls who have had scout and guide  training, almost invariably become upright citizens is generally accepted.

A FREE PRESS IS THE PRIVILEGE  OF A FREE COUNTRY  It was always a vision of the founder of the  Scout and Guide Movements, that they would  play a part in the building of a world fellowship. It was a vision, perhaps impossible of accomplishment is less than 40 years, and yet no  doub,t it has played a part in laying the foundations, and will play an ever greater part as  the years unfold. The tremendous services rendered their countries by Scouts and Guides during the war, and the splendid work they are  now doing in the rehabilitation of the movements in the devastated countries is proof that  the spirit is there and unbroken. What is needed  is an expansion of that spirit and of their forward-looking world outlook, to an even wider  circle of boys and girls, both in this country  and throughout the world.  Lord Rowallan, Chief Scout of the Empire,  who is to visit Canada this year recently expressed the belief "that S^butih^ andyVGiridhig  is one of" the few real Slopes for a better understanding among the peoples of the world, fOr  it is a common basis on which people of all  countries and creeds can meet." If Boy Scoutr  Girl Guide Week did nothing more than to emphasize and spread abroad that youthful spirit  of tolerance, fellowship and friendship, it  would serve a purpose which would be felt  around the world.

PAGE 7  aismi  (A recent issue of "Ubyssey", student publication of the University of British Columbia,  contained an article on the logging industry.  Written by "Jabez?', a lad who appears to know  the ropes, the piece gives a new slant on the  industry and is good for quite a few laughs.)  THE LOGGING industry is primarily for cutting trees. When it has cut enough trees' it  throws them in the water and they are washed  up on the* beach and make swell places for  beach-fires. We should all, therefore, admire the  logging industry and prevent forest fires, which  annoy it very much.  The first thing needed for a logging industry  is a forest, preferably a forest of trees. Trees  have, on the whole, been found to make the  best lumber, and every effort should be made  to start a logging camp in a region where there  are trees.  LOGGING FOR BEGINNERS  Trees are usually found by a man called a  surveyor, who goes out with his dog and finds  all the trees you want by keeping away from  cities-and highway. The dog has been found invaluable for this purpose, and has his own  sleeping quarters, called a pup-tent.  Once a tree has been found, a man with a  Swedish accent is sent out to cut it down. This  man, known as a "faller", can easily be identified by the fact that he yells "timber!" just  before the tree falls down.  Unfortunately, if you are close enough to a  |faller to hear him yell "timber!" you.will probably be killed by the tree when it falls down.  This is known as workman's compensation and  is quite popular.  Besides his axe and his Swedish accent, the .  faller must take along a friend who is a "buckler". This man saws the big tree, once it is felled,  iinto a lot of little trees, making it look like  [imore and fooling the company.  DONKEY SERENADE  Wherever the faller and bucker go they are  followed by a donkey. This donkey pulls itself  along by means of a line attached to a winch.  By turning the winch, the line shortens until  the donkey is fairly close to the tree. Then some  more men, caled "chokermen", approach the  tree and choke it with a line attaghect to .the ���  winch of; the donkey/7When they' think they  have choked the tree enough, the chokermen  chout to" a little man sitting on a stump.  The little man is the "whistlepunk" and when  the chokermen shout at him he hoots his whistle  back at them and the winch starts revolving  furiously, bringing the tree closer to the donkey, and probably rolling over one of the  chokermen, providing more workmen's compensation, which is appreciated by all con-  erhed.  The donkey keeps turning its winch until the  tree hasbeenhau^ci up to what is called a "cold  leek pile". This cbrisists of a large number of  trees heaped together so that they can be taken  iway. Here, another donkey, much larger than  the first and with a considerable number of  rinches revolving with steam coming out of the  \  ends, is brought up. By now the loggers are all  excited to see what will happen next.  SIMPLE OPERATION  First the tree is loaded onto a flat-car by the  first loader and the second loader. The first  loader is the loader who gets killed first when  the winches toss around the logs. The second  loader is only allowed to get killed after the  first loader, and therefore receives less pay.  During this operation, the donkey becomes so  excited turning its winches that it gives off  sparks. To counteract this, it is necessary to  hire a "spark-chaser", who chases the spark  into the woods until one or the other is extinguished.  When the tree has been placed on the flatcar,  it becomes a log. This is made official by a  "scaler", a man who climbs up on the loads and  measures the logs in board feet. When the locomotive engineer thinks the scaler has measured  enough board feet, he starts the train, throwing the scaler off the loads and usually killing  him. Besides the workman's compensation in- .  volved, this helps to amuse the locomotive engineer and prepares him for the arduous journey  ahead.  During the trip, the logs depend for their  welfare upon two men who sit on top of the last  load of logs with their knees crossed. These are  known as "brakemen", or "brakies", and it is  their function to annoy the locomotive as much  as possible. They do this by jumping off the  train, seizing switches, and forcing the locomotive into a siding. Then they wave their  arms at one another until the locomotive is  obliged to go to the back- of the train in disgrace. The train then starts off again with the  locomotive tamely pushing, instead of pulling  and fuming at the sight'of the two "brakies"  now sitting on top of the front load, with their  knees crossed.  Thus, when the locomotive reaches the sea,  it is in an excellent mood to hurl all the logs  into the water and stalk back into the woods in  a huff. What the locomotive doesn't know, of  course, is that this is exactly what the company  wants it to do. For, as soon as the locomotive  has gone, a number of men appear on the logs,  and start sticking them with sharp poles to see  if they are ripe. %  5Jlhese^,-are-the-"boommen", whose--job con���  sists chiefly of staying on the logs without falling into the water. At this point, another scaler  appears to see whether the dead scaler up in  the woods has correctly counted the number  of board feet in the logs.  Unfortunately this scaler is maintained by the  government and the company cannot kill him  off. Unless, of course, there is a change in the  government, in which case the company can  obtain permission without much difficulty.  Finally, a tug comes into the bay to take  away all the logs that have been found td be  ripe and showing the-proper number of board  feet. When it is a suitable distance out to sea,  the tug is struck by a sharp storm, losing most  of its logs, which are washed up on the beaches,  where they are quickly demolished by a swarm  of beach parties.

C.'S BIGGEST TREE  British Columbia has grown  some mighty big trees and it  appears it has also produced  some mighty big stories about  these trees. Although trees with  a diameter of twenty-isx feet  have supposedly grown in the  Lower Mainland region of the  province there are, apparently,  no records to substantiate this  boast. A tree with an alleged  diameter of twenty-two feet  was cut in North Vancouver  but since this was a cedar and  hollow in the centre authorities  intend to disallow this a contender. There is, however, pic-  torially recorded, in Vancouver  and the Provincial Archives, a  Douglas Fir, cut (in what is now  the centre of Vancouver in 1886.  This tree measured 14 feet 4 inches in diameter. Certainly, a  grand-daddy among firs.  Use the Ad-briefs . . . for profit and satisfaction.

McFADDEN  510  West   Hastings Street  VANCOUVER  ���  at Gibson's  Landing  EACH  Friday and Saturday  Eyes Examined arad Glasses  Fitted  These articles are printed by  request of readers interested in  raising rabbits as a paying  hobby.  Few hobbies are as fascinating or as profitable as raising  "Chin-Chin", (giant Chinchilla)  rabbits.  This famous strain is the latest edition of the Chinchilla rabbit, being the largest yet developed and having a lovely dense  blue under-fur. Authorities in  the fur trade agree that "chin-  chin" is the most beautiful and  most valuable of all rabbit furs.  Five different bands are noticed,  and the fur-trade is anxious to  obtain quantities of these pelts,  as this particular fur can be  made into full length coats, natural, or put through a process  called velvetizing. Velvetized  fur is very similar to the fur of  the' genuine Chinchilla, but in  no way related. (More at a later  date).  The raising of chin-chins offers opportunities to people of  medium and small means. They  can be raised with only limited  cash consideration, time and  accomodation.  If one possesses a liking for  animals, it is easy to make a  success of animal raising. The  work, is light and pleasant, provides an interesting interlude in  the days events, and the pleasure derived is increased by the  knowledge that the venture and  fruits of it are in a special sense  'ones very own.'  We are going to consider the  rabbit industry on a commercial  basis:  Many things must be considered if we are to have any hope  of making a profit. First and  most important step is the selection of stock. Always but the  finest and most pofitable stock  obtainable. Why pay out money  -for   ordinary   rabbits-' when   it  costs no more to keep rabbits  which will give the best results  financially, and which you will  be proud to own. We must cel-  ect a rabbit which gives us not  only the best of fur but "wjhich  will also supply the best possible meat for the market. The  texture and flavor of rabbit  meat aries with different breeds,  the same as it does in other  livestock. Size is another important factor to consider, as  this means more meat and larger pelts.  We cannot all afford to go in  for the higher priced animals  such as fox and mink, but we  can all afford to keep a few  rabbits. The rabbit industry is  well established and growing  steadily, with more and more  people deriving pleasure and  profit from it.  GAS  [Che Standard��!

Credit Union  ELECTION of officers at the  eighth anual meeting of the  Powell River- Credit Union in  Dwight Hall Friday night, saw  president Archie McPhee returned for a third term. A. R.  Glen was elected vice-president  and Henry Morris, Ethel MacKenzie, Thos. Hobson and Aubrey McKinnon were elcted to  the executive. There were no  major changes in the committee  officials.  PROGRESS MADE  In giving his preport, Mr. McPhee stressed the great progress  which the Credit Union made  during the year. He referred especially to the increase in membership, which jumped from 602  in 1944 to 732 in 1945, and to  the gain in share capital which  brings the total invested by  members, to $68,000. He also  commended the various committee members on the faithful  performances of their duties.  Touching on the forthcoming  Credit Union league convention,  which will be held here in  June, Mr. McPhee stated that  the convention must be in the  Powell River tradition. Over  150 delegates will be present  and everything possible will be  done to make their sojourn here  a pleasant one.  Credit Union insurance  schemes were explained to the  members, as well as the bonding  program and the Robert's Creek  school experiment. In this last,  the Inspector of schools and a  Credit Union league inspector  are co-operating in an effort to  teach the value of saving to  children of the Robert's Greek  school near Sechelt.  After the business meeting,  dancing was enjoyed in the  large hall.  Dangerous Voyages  DURING nearly six years of  war, vessels owned or operated by the Canadian National  (West Indies) Steamships sailed  more than 4,500,000 miles in enemy submarine infested waters  of the Atlantic and the Pacific.  All of the ships were in war  service either as fighting ships  or transporting troops, munitions, persons on war business,  and foodstuffs to soldiers and  civilians of the Allied Nations  and the peoples of countries  freed from the Nazis.  ass  Sunset Hardware  GIBSON'S  LANDING  We Have a Full Line oi  PLUMBING SUPPLIES  Order Your  FRIGIDAIRES  BEATTY WASHERS  WESTINGHOUSE  ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES  From Us Now!
