Maynard Dubois of Kleindale  stepped between two logs to  pick up his lunch after a full  morning's work on his logging'  claim one day last week. Hearing a nasty yowl, he looked up  to see the overgrown pussy-cat  not more than ten feet from the  same lunch, and entertaining  thoughts similar to own.  Using his old school rugby  tactics, Mr. Dubois quickly passed to the rear, around behind  the log, and out to-the front;,,  Mr. Cougar was unimpressed  and stood his ground.  Reverting quickly to a game  of hide and seek, but keeping  the log between him and the  possible fur rug. Maynard was  pleased to note the kitten  wouldn't play childish games  and with a patting- snarl it  stomped away in disgust.  BIRTHS  BISSONETTE���To Mr. and Mrs.  R. E. Bissonette, Selma Park, a  son.  KING--To Mr. and Mrs. W.C?  Jervis  Endorse  met Loggers  ospita  erne  LOGGERS and camp crews of  the Niemi Logging Company  at Jervis Inlet have signed up  for the Columbia Coast Mission's hospital scheme . 100 percent, according to a news release from Dr. Leo Freisen, who  recently visited the logging  camp in company with William  Pieper of Irving's Landing.  During the visit, Dr. Friesen  explained to the loggers the.  broad principles of the hospital  insurance contract. The benefits to be derived from membership in the scheme were acclaimed at the meeting and all  members of the logging organization joined en masse.  Basically the scheme works  similar to the principal of an juT-  surance firm, whereby a large  number of people . contributing  regularly to a central hospital  pool, are assured of constant  hospital service.  NEED MORE MEMBERS  pital free to give the best service it can. "The treatment expenses would be covered by the  income from other members."  When queried, the doctor  said that roughly it could be  called a co-operative hospital  scheme.  "In the army we never worry  about cost," Mr. Freisen said,  "we find out what service  a man needs, and give it to him.  One of my first patients here  was a young logger. I knew  that he needed a certain set of  treatments and hospital service.  When he was being discharged  from the hospital, the secretary  presented him a bill of $240. No  logger can afford that more  than once a year at the very  most, yet who is to say that he  won't be back next month with  an entirely different trouble of  suffering from blood-poison or  accident?"*  Under the scheme now in op-  "However" warned the doctor*    eration he pays only the month-  'it needs 1000 members to get  the best results, and when you  realize we only have around 300,  you appreciate the work that  has yet to be done to put this  thing on a paying basis."  In interview with a Coast  News reporter, Dr. Freiseji  pointed  out  that ,the viawerage  ly bill and a reasonable fraction of the medicine. The  scheme covers the doctor's and  hospital charges  For the information of those  interested in this scheme, the  rates are as follows:  Single person, $1.25 pjsr  tnpnth; parried y, couple,   $2.50;  :ar^;r��p6rted^as^  :i��rMle#m^f*^^  ^iwy'tfrt��if   yffiffiwntic^Tn  ^yf^/i^)r^ * W;in^ ��rW^ w c,i^fl��1v ��n��/ic    ?j.uu per montn.  able iri- preisentatibh"* arM great JEFFERiEfe-^Ti6 .^^^yfaxiS^-M^ "   is faced when he suddenly needs  hopes have been expressed f<*r Janes  Jefferies,  Egmont,   an  8  the club's first public perform- pound  son  at St.  Mary's  Hos-  ance. pital, Feb, 12.  and   is   unprepared  PROGRAM STARTED  Garden Bay School  Children Inoculated  treatment,  for it.  "But if we can get 1,000 members to subscribe a small amount  monthly, (from one to five dol-  dars depending on service, coverage and support), the basic  operating expenses of the hospital will be covered continuously and this will leave the hos-  Betailed information .as to the  Hospital Insurance Scheme may  be obtained at any time on application at St. Mary's Hospital.  It should be noted by those  wishing to take membership:  that the next period commences  on April 1st, and new applicants should apply 2 weeks prior  to this date.  Mrs. W. A. Houston,  Aged 75, Passes at  EIGHTEEN   school   children   from   Silver   Sands   school  received preliminary innoculations  last week in the   Brackendale  first part of a recent program started by the staff of Garden  Bay hospital in an attempt to provide modern medical protection to children of school age.  The staff of the hospital expressed great appreciation  to Mr. Scrtt of Wilf Scott's    ���   Transfer for his efforts in  transporting the children  from the school to the hospital and back to school again.  It is understood that this one  step was but the first'of a series, and already plans are underway to treat children from  schools in and around Pender  Harbour and Jervis Inlet.  The hospital staff pointed out  in interview that their time  and euipment is quite limited  for work of the scale such as  they have recently taken on, but  expressed hope that most of the  schools in their area could be  served in the next two or three  months with careful and full  co-operation of school boarcls  and transportation facilities.  It was pointed out that the  only feasible way of doing the  work is to bring the whole  school population at once to the  hospital, as individual innoculations would run a very expend  sive bill.  In some cases it may be necessary to serve one or two of the  more isolated school districts  from'the Coast Mission Hospital  boat, but it is understood that  this craft already is Overtaxed.  Innoculations of this nature  are usually for diphtheria, typhoid or scarlet fever, and if  plans of the hospital reach  maturity it is expected that  children from this area wtfl receive protection from these  scourges.  HONEYMOONING at Hardy Island during the past two  weeks have been Mr. and Mrs.  Richard B. Burgeson of Geneva,  Illinois. Mrs. Burgeson is the  neice of Mr. Chris Sandvold,  with whom they have been visiting.  On Friday, Feb 15, 1946 at  her residence Mrs. Rose Marie  Houston, wife of William Houston of Brackendale passed away.  Mrs. Houston was seventy-five  years of age. She was born on  Vancouver Island but had been  a resident of Squamish Valley  for thirty-two years.  She leaves to mourn her passing her husband, three sons,  Fred and Ernest of West Vancouver and William of Hope;  three daughters, Mrs. eJ. L. Cor-  res at Hollyburn, Mrs. S.

Man-o-war,   contrary  to  th��r  notion of many,  never ran in*  the Kentucky Derby; in 1929 the  first   of  his   sons   to   win  the  Derby was Clyde Van Dusen.  ONE OF the important items in  raising rabbits as a paying  hobby is the building of a suitable hutch or pen.  A comfortable pen makes for  the contentment of the rabbit.  We should bear in mind when  building a pen, that plenty of  light and' fresh air as well as  ample space for exercise is necessary. The following brief description will enable the beginner to start off right.  Pens should be 4'x2'x2\ Covered with one inch wire on all  sides, top and bottom. 3-4 inch  wire for the bottom of the pen  is preferrable, but one linch  wire serves well enough during  the present wire shortage. A  tray to catch the dropping under  the pen may be made of galvanized sheeting or some other  waterproof material. This system is a real time saver in cleaning ahd provides very healthy  surroundings   for   the   rabbits.  The tray may be movable or  placed on a slant so all refuse  will fall into a trough along the  front or back of the pen.  These are numerous ideas on  this subject, and the writer will  give more detailed information  on request.  For those wishing to raise rabbits but have very little space,  an excellent method is to build  your pens on the tier system,  That is, two or three pens, one  above the other. It is amazing  how many rabbits can be cared  for in this manner with only a  few minutes daily attention.  The famous chin-chin giant  Chinchilla of gray with blue  underfur makes an attractive  and valuable pelt.  It is very interest to watch  the changes in fur texture and  coloring when the pelt is priming.   There  is  always   a  ready  market for chin-chin pelts as  these furs when velvetized by  the fur trade, closely resembles  the genuine chin-chilla.

Sir Lancelot: "Four cents an ounce, Sire. It's  first-class mail."  HIGHLAND FLING  A spinster, whose heart was in good works,  happened to be on the dock when a transport  full of Highlanders began its journey to France  on D-Day.  To a cute-looking flapper who was waving  the Highlanders a cheery good-bye, he said:  "I think it's a shame to send all those Highlanders to France. Whatever will the poor boys  do there?"  "What'll they do?" replied the flapper. "Ain't  you ever been out with a Kiltie?"  ONE FOR ALL  A passenger on board ship found that he had  left his tooth-brush in the washroom. Returning  to recover it, he found a man using it.  "Sir," he exclaimed in amazement, "that is  my brush you are using!"  "Oh," replied the man apologetically, "I'm  so sorry. I thought it belonged to the boat."  PAGE G. B. SHAW  "What's your name?" asked the Colonel of  the new recuit, just arrived at Aldershot from  his native Glasgow.

HOW TO GET SLIM  The veteran felt that he was getting too  stout, so he consulted his doctor.  "The finest, way to get thin," the doctor told  him, "is to shake the head slowly and deliberately."

WE HEARTILY congratulate the hospital  staff on their announcement this week  of a big increase of membership in their  hospital benefits plan.  Sufficient reasons are given in the story  of the plan accompanying the announcement to make all residents in the area  served by this all important link of humanity not only once, but repeatedly of  what they can do unitedly to help themselves in the line of medicar service.  Too often these days do we hear com-  * plaints of inaction on the part of the government (and many of the complaints are  quite justifiable), but it does us good to  take stock once in a while to consider our  own lackadaisical attitude towards our  problems.  ; Medical and hospital service is a prime  essential in this area. United, we can  lower the costs of service to the level of  average (and below average) pocketbooks.  By the simple step of inquiring into the  plan proposed by the staff of the hospital  at Garden Bay, and signing the pledge  membership card we can ensure continuation of the plan.  Without Wax  By H. W. BROOKER  X  '%  TIME AND again, attempts have been made in  the   Sechelt  district  to  ogranize  a  group  of  citizens in some particular club of interest and  benefit to us all.  What  happens?   After  a  flurry  of  meetings i  by well meaning people, the majority of these  clubs gradually fade away and are heard of no '  more.  Why?���Lack of unity and understanding between the leaders and the members is the  general cause. In most cases we elect a few  people to office who have had no previous  experience in leadership or organization. -This  thoughtless and foolish^practice alone is enough  to jeopardize any organization. Then again, we  have "seat warmers", those of us who take no  ' active interest in the meetings. Oh yes, we  enjoy criticizing the general plan of things, but  are not offering a helping hand by assisting  and working along with our fellow rnembers.  Taking a part in any group is a serious matter,  and every person ,in or out of office is responsible for its success.  The -following pre-requisites are most important to all of us who are sincere in building  a group of people into a useful and happy  band of co-workers, social, educational or recreational.     '  1. Belief. Genuine belief in the organization  makes for success in the contact with others.  2. Confidence. An important element iri personal influence is confidence.  3. Enthusiasm.  4.1nsight.    The   control   of   others   demands  ability   to   penetrate   their   motives,   and   discover their talents.  5. Co-operation. Permanent influence over  others flows from the enlistment of their  strength.  6. Self-mastery. The secret of controlling  others lies in the moral mastery of self. If we  are not masters of ourselves, how can we  expect to lead or guide others?  How much we achieve in developing a real  community in Sechelt depends upon how much  we deserve one. This truth embraces many  things which the objectors will not see. Too  many of us mistake what we desire for what  we< deserve.  Yes, we desire a community centre. But do  we deserve one?   Think it over.  In taking revenge, a man is but even with  his enemy; but in passing it over, he is superior.���Anonymous  ��ke Coast Jfews  Published Every Friday  .. by  The Coast News Limited  Registered  office���Powell River,  B.C.

NOT  MUCH  in   the  way  of  events to talk about down  here this week, but Powell Rivfer  sport teams are still breaking  the lines.  Ye editors drop a tip my way  that Pender Harbour Badminton club held their monthly  American tournament Friday,  Feb. 22. Prizes were taken by  Elsie Lee and Jim Cameron.  The Powell River high school  received it's severest jolt in  years when it was knocked out  of the Vancouver tournament  in the first round.  Powell River high school  dropped a heart-breaker to old  rivals Duke of donnatight, be  ing 41-39 against P.R. at the last  bell.  Vancouver Gibson's, leader in  its circuit, took the All Stars  21-20 in a weird game that saw  P.R. 10-0 ahead at the end of the  first quarter.  The high school game was  particularly tough because the  team was making a name for  itself in the school league, taking easily all-comers to date except the Duke of Connaught,  (which was defeated only in the  finals by Vancouver College).  Till ye sports reporters up  and down the coast awake and  send in those reports, we'll call  it time for the night.  V.O.N. Axillary  Valentine Tea  Very Successful  A VALENTINE tea, sponsored  by Sechelt V.O.N. Auxiliary and  held in the team room recently  was very successful, the sum of  $40 being realized.

Provincial Bodies  Endorse U.B.C.  Memorial Plan  ENDORSEMENT of the $500,000  University of British Columbia War Memorial Gymnasium  Campaign sponsored by a joint  studentralumni committee has  been pledged by nearly every  recreational and service organization in the province, according to Frank Turner, secretary-  treasurer of the UBC Alumni  Association. The campaign has  entered its third week.  A circular letter petitioning  support to the gymnasium campaign will be sent out to ajj  provincial legion branches* by  the branch 72, University branch  Canadian Legion here by president Tony Greer, and second  vice-president Grant Livingstone.  The 162nd battalion of the  First World" War has requested  brochures and information on  the drive.  Ed Temoin, vice-president of  the B. C. branch of the Amateur  Athletic Union of Canada, passed a resolution at a meeting  "moving the support of all athletic bodies in the Amateur Athletic Union providing complete  support for the University of  British Columbia gymnasium  drive."  The motion was carried unanimously.  Safe-Crackers  Unsuccessful  Using tools, which they had  taken from the establishment's  hardware department, would-be  cracksmen last weekend made  an unsuccessful attempt to force  open the Powell Stores office  safe.  Entrance to the store was  gained through a broken win-  down facing the alley between  the Government building (which  houses the local Provincial Police office) and the store itself.  Tools used in the attempted  safe-cracking, which was discovered by Manager A. H. Florence when he opened the store  Monday- morning, included  drills, hacksaws, a hammer, a  punch and a crowbar. The  cracksmen apparently tried to  drill into the front of the safe  and, failing thai, dragged; the  safe away from the wall and  tried to jimmy the back off with  the crowbar.  This too, was unsuccessful,  and the yeggs, either giving it  up for a bad job, or possibly  being scared off by the night  watchman, made their exit  through the delivery door at the  rear of the store.  Apart from the tools," nothing  in the store was touched, but a  cash drawer in the office was  pried open. Several dollars in  coppers was left untouched, the  men apparently being after bigger loot.  When contacted by the News,  local police officials stated that  it did not appear to be the job  of professional safe-crackers.  The matter is being investigated.  Vancouver Boy  Is Sought Here  The Powell River and District  Red Cross branch has been contacted today by parents of Robert Martin, 13, of Vancouver,  who has been missing since  Ictboer 29. The young lad, who  left for school the morning of  Oct. 29, has not been heard of  since then and a reward of $50  has been posted for information  leading to the boy's whereabouts.  Parents of the boy believe  that he is vjorking on some  farm and have extended their. ���  sarch to include rural areas and  industrial towns such as Powell  River.  When last seen the boy was  wearing a red shirt, wine colored sweater, brown windbreaker  with blu checks, black denim.  pants, black shoes and socks. He  is five feet four inches tall.

Their reporter son has recently  completed a world tour which  started last year with the Victoria legislature coverage. Then  he reported on the military disturbance at Terrace B. C, about  a year ago. Mr. Root Jr. had  only a 40-minute notice to prepare himself for the airplane  ride to Terrace to observe the  disturbance.  COVERED CONFERENCE  Next stop on his tour was the  job of covering the Dominion-  Provincial conference at Ottawa  last year, after which he trav  elled to Quebec to interview  early repats.  There he joined a party of  three newsmen and ten military  officers for a survey trip over  the battlefields of the world. He  went from Labadour to Scotland to England, (including one  night in London); then continued on his special plane, over  France and Italy, with - some  stops around the Mediterranean  and into Cairo.   '  Continuing to India, the  party had a chance to observe  native problems in Karachi and  Calcutta. (Bill Root apparently  had little sympathy with the  professional beggars, who swarm  on the streets and slept in  doorways to make sure they  would be on the job early next  morning.

'1  B. C. AGRICULTURE  Great in War, Must Be Greater Still in Peace.  Our  TO be truly great, British Columbia's 1946 Production Programme will  see the production of those foods for which there is the greatest  world need.  Direction in that production comes from two world-wide bodies:  (a) The United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration,  an emergency organization which is attempting to supply  all immediate and pressing needs for food;  and  (b) The Food and Agricultural Organization which is a permanent  body and plans future food production and distribution on  a world-wide basis.  Reconciling the direction given by these bodies with export credits,  trade agreements and firm contracts, the pominion-Provinciid Agncul-  iural Conference at Ottawa in December last made certain recommendations which summarized are:   ,  5% increase in Dairy Butter;  2% increase in Milk;  100% and upward increase in alfalfa, alsike, and red clover seeds;  and, for British Columbia, 1,000 acre increase in potato planting.  During the war British Columbia gained for itself a good name for  top quality seeds, foods, and all produce from its farm^ and orchards.  With a forward look into future years and bigger business, every agriculturist, every citizen should work to ensure that this high standard is  maintained.

GOOD QUALITY���FAIR PRICES  Open Letter  Whiskey Slough,  (Pender Harbor),  Feb. 28, 1946  All 'Members of Parliament,  Ottawa, B. C.  Attention  Jimmy   Sinclair.  Dear Sirs:  Yesterday was my mother's >  birthday, and she lives at Halfmoon Bay which is about 30  miles south of Sechelt, and  10,000 miles from Ottawa. I ^m  not a very well man and do not  like to move around very much,  otherwise I should have gone  down to see her, or written a  letter and walked over one of  our provincial government trails  two miles to the nearest store to  mail the letter. However, the  letter would have had , to go  from the store across a half mile  of water in the most magnificent harbor in the world, and  waited for the Union boat to  Vancouver.  After the letter had come out  of the Union Boat office in Vancouver, it would have gone  through all departments of the  Vancouver post office, and then  it would have been put back  on the boat for Halfmoon Bay.  The postmaster at Pender Harbour sent it to Vancouver y because it had one of those three  cent stamps that somebody inflated one cent a coupla years  ago (personally, I don't care if  it was a.cent) so long as I/get  what I want out of it; but more  of that another time).  Anyways, it would have taken  at least two days and maybe a  week for my mother to get her  letter, and that would have been  too late because I didn't remember it was her birthday yesterday until the day before.  Besides, she can't read.'  Gentlemen, I wish I had a  phone. If I had a phone I could  have phoned my mother to wish  her happy birthday, but yl  haven't a phone and neither has  she. We don't own postoffices  or hospitals or stores and they  are the only ones allowed to  have them down here.  Now, I could have gone to the  store and phoned to the other  store across the harbor and they  could have phoned to Sechelt  if the line wasn't down again  and nobody was using it, and  Sechelt could have phoned to  the store at Halfmoon Bay if all  eight of the phones that Halfmoon Bay is allowed to have, *  were not in use (because of  course they are all on one line,  and you can only use one at a  time, if the lines aren't down.  I don't mind paying the 30  cents or so for the thirty mujes  or so the message travels and  I don't mind the five cents  Halfmoon Bay store might  charge for sending somebody to  the top of the twb-mile-long hill  to tell my mother that she is  wanted on the phone, but I do  wish that she' was allowed to  have a phone, even if it is out  of order half the time. .  I guess the people up here  can't get phones, or phone service. You know why, don't you  Jimmy? You said in a letter to  the Coast- News last fall that  you had told somebojdy or other  in Ottawa about it and that they  had made you a lot of promises'  or something, and I see that  they are now putting in a new  line.  But gee, Jimmy, I wish they  would put in some new phones  too, and the kind that you don't  have" to wait till nobody else is -  using it, and that when it is  your turn you don't have, to  crank your arm off to g��t Sechelt to go anywhere.
