R. STEFANINI of the  Kingsway Monumental Works  is here to make a survey of his  granite quarry near West Sechelt. He is accompanied by a  party of Eastern Canadians who  are interested in taking over  the quarry with, idea of increasing the output and paying Mr.  Stefanini for it on a royalty  basis. The granite is of good  quality and is there in large  quantities, and tests are being  made to find how close the  seams run. If the seams run  close together they will affect  the size of the blocks of granite cut in the quarry.  In business with his two sons,  Mi*. Stefanini has operated his  present business in Vancouver  for over twenty years. Starting  at the age of en years he has  spent fifty-seven years following his profession as stone-cutter. During his stay at Sechelt  he is combining business with  pleasure and is visiting his old  friends Mr. and Mrs. A. Crucil.  ROBERTS CREEK  A. N.

He was in the act of  falling a tree when it accidently  fell backwards across a nearby  power-line.

Luckily for him, he picked  up the wire which was broken  in several places and was dead.

Parents should make every  and constant warnings and horrible threats should never be  used, and above all never threaten a child with "the doctor",  "the nurse", "the hospital" or  "the policeman", all of whom  should be regarded by the child  as people who will help him. As  the child grows older he may  be warned about dangerous  things but the very young child  should be kept away from danger without being aware of it.  On the first evidence of fear,  the parent should attempt to reassure the child, reason with  him in simple language, guide  him away from his terror, and  build, up confidence ,and trust in  himself as well as in them.  NERVOUS CHILDREN  There are a few constitutionally  nervous  children who  require   especially   careful   hand-,  ling, and a regular routine, lots  of   sleep,   and   quiet   play,   are  essential in their program.   The  nervous,   nagging,   worrying  "bickering" parent can be relied  upon to develop nervous irritable  fussy  children.,  A  parent  who is constantly warning the  child  about  her  own  "nervous  condition"   is   likely   to   induce  similar  reactions  in  the   child.  Obvious worry over the child's  health   habits   etc.,   frequently  accompanied   by    fussing    and  coddling   him   concentrate   his  attention - on himself with similar results.   The child's health  should   never   be   discussed   in  front of him.| Send your problems to this column and we will  do our best to help you.  \ix**  SELMA PARK  MRS. W. D. GILBERT.

THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.  Page Five  "Jesus, when he had cried again with a  loud voice, yielded up to the ghost. And  behold, the veil of the temple wcls rent in  twain from the top to the bottom; and the  earth did quake and the rocks rent.  It is this mystical event which the Christian  world celebrates at Easter. For nineteen hundred years Christian men have marked it,  have, paused fleetingly in their daily business  to ponder its meaning. To it they have given  various interpretations, and divided their  churches and doctrines accordingly, but the  ) basic meaning of Jesus' death is clear to all.  It is the universal lesson of sacrifice, and the  rewards .thereof.  The lesson of Easter was never so poignant  as it is today, our first peacetime Easter. The  forces of evil, of violence and intolerence  which crucified Jesus nineteen centuries ago  , have now crucified a large part of the world.  J A civilization which refused to listen to His  ���teachings now pays the price of its folly and,  ^ as of old time, the sins of the fathers are visited  (on the children and on the innocent with the  guilty.  ^ Out of that evil age of war emerged once  i/more the will to sacrifice. In the men who  fought that war against the forces of paganism  we saw the same spirit which inspired the Son  r of Man and made his murderers stand and  F wonder beside his lonely cross. Jesus dies that  men might live. In a humbler way, in countless  corners of the earth, in great machines of the  air and under the sea and on scorching deserts  ^and in steaming jungles, men died that others  might live better. No Easter in all history  has seen in greater measure the spirit which  ^Easter teaches. ,  Men have learned much more, by now, than  ST. GEORGES DAY  4*_LetMer<py Be Our Boast  ami Shame Our Only Fear"  ON   THIS   St.   George's   Day,   one   may   well  :   reflect upon .'all' that civilization owes to the  men of England. It is not without reason that  His   Maj esty   the   King   is   Defender:   of   the  .  Faith.   ���   -  ;.:/���.;-'!i .^���,i,. .:   -r^T^Trjrrv-rr;^  For sixVeen centuries worthy English men  have upheld the Christian virtues of Mercy,  Truth-andJustice;! They have dedicated their  ���lives for the preservation of the humanities.  And they have fought just as faithfully against  oppressors within the State as they have  against the enemies from without. No enemy  has set foot on English soil unchallenged.  The four freedoms were fought for and won  (by English men. This fact is sometimes overlooked . . . let us remember it in times like  [these, when we know not where our enemies  fare. *,:'!'���!. .  Today, the men of England and their sons  from the great Dominions, now growing to  ,-oaturity in national stature, are returning  I from the embattled lands, from points across  > the seven seas after a bitter, bloody struggle  for the things in which they believed. We  | salute these men of England in the words of  I their own Shakespeare. . . .  "This England never did, nor never shall,  Lie at the proud foot of a conqueror: x  I    Come the three corners of the world in arms,  And we shall shock them.  Nought shall make us rue,   *  If England to itself do rest but true."  ��� .. .   ���         A  [      Vice or Virtue  y THERE are different kinds of pride, some good  and others not so good.   For instance we are  /' proud toube Canadians and that is as it should  be, but there are other things we should take  j pride  in too,  such as our beautiful province  and  many  of the  institutions^ therein restab-  Mshed, many in number, but to mention a few  there are the wonderful service organizations  such as the Red Cross and so on down the  line, then there is the local weekly paper  which is never given its full measure of credit.  It is; through this medium that we are given  an opportunity to express points of view that  would be brushed aside by the large city  daily.y^,.^.Ty':r.;...y^- . ,. . ���'���"' _.'  -'Should;Vwe have pride?

They  have learned that there is no hope for their  civilization and for themselves or their children, outside the teachings of the Man who died  at Easter.  Those teachings can take many forms, some  of them outside the orthodox teachings of the  Christian church, but basically they must be  accepted by the whole world before we can  biuld an enduring peace.  Those teachings proclaim the brotherhood of  man and the integrity of the individual soul.  They are the teachings which our enemies  denied, and which they would have swept from  the face of the earth. They are the teachings  which we neglected in our years of sloth and  folly.  But this Easter we must come back to them,  recognizing them as our only hope, and fighting for them all over the world.  The challenge which Jesus uttered from the  Cross seemed to concern a few Roman soldiers,  s a mob of townspeople from Jerusalem, and a  few poor men who were his disciples. We now  see that the challenge was meant for the  whole world and must be answered by the  whole world. Nineteen centuries have not dimmed nor dulled it. This Easter it is clearer  than it has ever been, beyond question and  beyond evasion.  In many forms, the battles of the war, in the  peace settlement, in the whole management of  society, the challenge must be met.  The "failure to meet it, as we have learned,  does not destroy the Man who uttered it and  His teachings. It destroys us.   .  At Easter, whatever our denominational beliefs,   these   things   should   be   pondered,   for  they   go   beyond   creeds,   beyond   races,   and .  touch the life of every human being upon earth.  Just How Long?  RETURNING thanks to the City of London,  whose Lord Mayor and corporation had made  him a freeman, Field Marshal Viscount Alexander is reported as predicting that the atomic  bomb might prevent another major war for  "a long time."  This: may disappoint that, school of thought  -which ^contends that^anythirrg' _^'* thoroughly^1  terrifying must end war for all time! Yet almost every weapon which has made its appearance within the memory of contemporary  generations has provoked the prophecy that  there could never now be another war.  But not only is it true, in the words of a well-  known military axiom, that for every new  implement of war an antidote will appear, but  also a still more frightsome implement. Somehow man's ingenuity for destruction seems to  know no bounds.   ,  Yet that frightfulness does have the effect of  prolonging periods between wars is demonstrated by the time between the first and second great wars as compared with the length of  the pause between their predecessors. Unfortunately the time was not long enough to cure*  people of thinking of war.  In terms of public morals, however, virtue  will have made little or no progress if the only  reason for peace is fear of war. Ideally, if war  is to be outlawed it must be because it is wasteful, foolish, and as immoral is bulk as murder  is by a< single person. Therefore, civilization's  hope must be that Lord Alexander's "long  time" will be long enough to cure us forever  of the habit of "thinking" war.  Bible Reading  AND THE angel answered and said unto the  women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek  Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here:  for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the  place where the Lord lay.

Millions, in  Europe, face not only hunger���but death, through starvation.  During the war, Canadian farmers worked night and day  to feed our fighting forces. The results amply repaid their  splendid efforts.  Now an emergency of equal proportions is confronting us  here in Canada, ^th^most- ofr Europe's countries facing famine,  and its attendant implications, we cannot stand idly by and  permit our fellow humans to starve without, at least, first doing  all in our power to alleviate their distressing, serious condition.  Freedom from Want���one of the Four Freedoms���is surely  within our power to fulfill. This is an appeal to you���as a farmer  ���an appeal seriously recognized by the British Columbia Government���to help the unfortunate, starving millions of people  in Europe.  WILL YOU HELP?  Here Is What You're Asked To Do!  1. Produce a maximum of substantial foodstuffs���pork, beefy  poultry meat, eggs, milk, vegetables, fruits, legume seeds, etc.  2. Use commercial fertilizers, lime, manure and the best possible  farming techniques. ,  3. Use good British Columbia-grown seed.  4. Plant a garden for your own use. y %  5.

It is  tailed after Rear-Admiral Sir  Alexander John Ball, Bart., the  commander of HMS Alexander  at the. battle of the Nile (August  land 2, 1798). One of Nelson's  "Band of Brothers", he was later known as. Nelson and Ball  became great friends: When  ���Ball, joined Nelson before the  battle he was greeted thus:  "What! Are you come to have  bur bones broken?" To which  all replied he had ho wish to  ave . his" bones broken unless  lis duty to his king and country  equired it, and then they must  Ot be spared.  ��� Soon he proved his valor by  pming to the Vanguard's assistance in a lieavy gale. Ball per- .  listed .and brought his charge to .

On one edge I saw the  name Admiral Jervis and on the  other the name, Earl of St. Vincent. Walkran's book revealed  that the Admiral and Earl were  one and the same person.  Sir John Jervis at St. Vincent  won a great victory over the  Spanish (February 14, 1797.)  He received an earldom as a reward. He grew up in a naval  atmosphere, as his father was  counsel for the Admiralty and  auditor at Greenwich Hospital.  We have seen too that he was a  boyhood friend of Wolfe of the  Plains , of Abraham. He found  in ,the; younger Nelson a loyal  and faithful:subordinate. .  VANGUARD BAY  Vanguard Bay on Nelson Island is named after Nelson's  flagship at the battle of the Nile  :���a glorious victory completely  severing Napoleon and his army  in Egypt and Europe. This victory .appealed .to the .British  people more than any other had  done, and the coaches ran but of  London wreathed in laurel.  Twelve British ships attacked  thirteen French. The latter lost  eleven out . of thirteen. Their  flagship was blown up. Two 80-  gun ships were captured, and  for .this deed Nelson won his  baronetcy.  SYKES ISLAND  Sykes   Island   commemorates  an A.B. in the. British Navy, a  follower  of  Lord  Nelson,  who  was with him. the whole time of  ^ his .gjpripuj? ���deedis^ lie* sav��& the.  ��� r;Iife of the(glorious hero in th>  x Bay of Cadiz by twice parrying  ��� blows: aimed at Nelson and ; at  ���  last- actually interpose^ his own  head   to   receive   a   sabre   cut  which he couldn't avert by any  other means from which he received a dangerous wound.  Nelson's barge,.. containing 12  men, was attacked by a Spanish  gunboat manned by 26. It was a  close shave for Nelson.  BERRY POINT  Before, entering into Hotham  Sound, w;e . pass Berry', ;Point,  named.,,. a_ter< one;.; of, Nelsqn's/  capfair^Vj.^ei^^as Lor^; Nelson's follower through, life^ He  first, joined as lieutenant iri the  4gamemnon. ,At St. Vin.cehly.he  he was with^l^elson: iii the capture,,.: ,of Me: .^fqrementibned  Spanish ,:fUhe-o^-biattie; .ships,  San J^ucolas ahd San ^sef^ y^He  atendeli: the-rcourt with Nelson  on/the King!s remarking: iq^ isfel-  son on thej loss of -his arm, Nelson promptly, presented, perry  as his "right hand."v.Berry"was'  Nelson's flag .captain in the  Vanguard, at the battle, of the  Nile.

As^ .!a?i^ub9rdinate,vOffiicer,  he':=was exc^Henjt (but rfell below  the requirements necessary for  a commander-in-chief.  FOLEY MOUNTAIN  Coming out of Hotham Sound  we see Foley Mountain, 2,000  feet, on our left. Foley was a  flag captain at the battle of St.  Vincent, shortly after which he  was appointed to command the  Goliath, 74 guns, one of Nelson's  - fleet at the. Battle of the Nile,  and let the British fleet into cation. In so doing he passed around the van of the French armada as it lay at anchor and engaged it on the inside; the ships  immediately following did the  same and a part at least of the  brilliant  and decisive result of  : the battle has been commonly  attributed to this manoevre.  Captain Foley is another of the  Band of Brothers mentioned by  Nelson. Foley was Nelson's'flag  captain at the Battle of Cbpen*  hagen, and only his poor health  kept him from the last battle of  Nelson���Trafalgar, in 1805.  GOLIATH BAY  Around'the corner, below Foley Mountain is Goliath Bay,  named after his ship, which was  in the battle of the Nile.  DACRES POINT  Across the Bay is Dacres Pt.  Dacres was in charge of HMS  Barfleur at the Battle of St.  Vincent. Dacres' naval career  began very favourably. The Ac-  tive^ in company with the Fa-  vorite,. slpop-ofrwar, .captured  the Hermione,,off .Cadiz. It was  a very-; rich Spanish sip from  Lima. She was the richest prize  made during the war; the; net  proceeds of .her cargo when all  charges had been paid ampun*  ted to 519,705; pounds sterling.  Captain of the Active received  65.053 pounds; of the Facorite,  64,872 pounds; three commissioned officers of the Active,  13,004 pounds each; three: commissioned officers of the Favorite, 12;974 pounds each; seamen  on the Active, 485 pounds each;  seamen on the Favorite, 484  pounds each.  The  treasure  was   carried to  X horidpfrufrpm viPortspaouth    to.  Lohfdpn inTt^  orated' with ' British; colors fly-  in go ver those of Spainy ��� and escorted by a party of sailors.

As you all know, the Credit  Union building is not yet finished, although considerable  progress has been made. This  is an appeal to all our carpenters and helpers to be on hand  Sunday, April 14, to complete  *. the building. We are badly in  need of our own office, and it  will facilitate our business very  greatly to have all our business  activities centralized under one  roof. So, come along all of you  and don't rely on George to be  there to do all the work.  Our  business  expanded  rapidly during the month of March.  In fact the  call for loans was  so  great  that  we had to  cash  $1200   worth   of   victory   bonds  to  meet the  demand.   We  met  it,  and more and more of our  fellow citizens realize the value  of the credit union.   Yet, it is  nice  to  be  able  to, help  those  who need loans, but don't for-:  get the advantages to all who  save in the credit union.  We paid you three per cent  our your savings last year. You  get three percent interest on  Victory bonds too, but;the credit  union keeps your savings insured at no extra cost to you.  If you save $1000 in the credit  union before you are 55 years  of age you are enjoying $1000  worth of life nisurance for  which .you pay no premium"  If /ybttybuy $1000 worth" of insurance it would cost you about  $25 or more a year, depending  on your age. We are sure you  are ready to damit the advantages of being a regular saver  in the credit union.  Come on in, the water is fine.  During the month of March  our membership increased exactly 10 per cent, to a total of  99. At this moment it is 101.

Our population is growing steadily, and so  is the demand for rnore homes,  and new and extended services.  The boys are nearly all back  from the wars and looking for  opportunities of getting into  business for themselves. Several  of them have found their way  to the credit union for the necessary cash for that property  they had in mind, or for that  business of their own in which  they wanted to establish themselves.  We are here to serve those  who care to join us as members.  Some of our officers are experienced business men who repeatedly have given good sound  advice to members who have  come to us with their business  problems.

The axe is reported to have  skidded off the side of the block  on which she was chopping  wood, and caught her right leg  about the middle of the shin-  bone. Neighbors gave immediate  assistance, one neighbor calling  upon the assistance of first-aid  attendant Mr. Eric Stathers,  who took charge pending the  arrival of, Dr. MacDonald from  Woodfibre. ��  Stitches and prolonged treatment are expected.
