The eight ship calls were made  up-of four ferry trips, three  passenger-and-freight trips, and  one freight trip.  One does not have to be a  pioneer to recall a far cry from  this service. It has not been  many years since all but the  summer months saw three boats  a week, Monday being one of  the days omitted, no ferry, no  bus, and not sufficient freight to  warrant   a  supplementary  trip.  If it is true, that -increased  population has necessitated this  added service, it cannot on the  ~iher hand be denied that the  * increased travelling facilities,  some of them pioneer efforts to  this district, have encouraged  an influx of residents.  Some day these people may  look back upon todays service  and regard it as rudimentary as  we now contend the service of  rive  Of All Descriptions  A Hand Rises  Out of the  Moat!  By MARGARET ALLAN  ANOTHER manifestation on the  Mason road. A hand rises out  of the moat, holding a placard  with the inscription: Give us  six a day, and your roads will  stay. I wonder what that means  ���it might mean wages. The  government, I believe, is trying to get new machinery, but  in the mean time their is only  half a dozen men on the road  from here to Gibsons. The  ditches need cleaning. If they  made the work more attractive,  lowed ;.t>y;ythe   organization  of  j the association, which as,far as  is known would be the first of  >its kind in Canada.  ^Registration >for the conference is yystill open.

Roberts Creek  Clothing Collectors  Request Support  ROBERTS CREEK ��� The citizens of Canada are again being asked to help hte distressed  countries of Europe and Asia  with clothing. The need is  great, and people of Roberts  Creek are requested to go  through their cupboards for  anything they can spare in the  way of wearing apparel. Parcels may be left at the Red  Cross room or at house next to  Post Office. Remember what  you can spare���they can wear.  RED CROSS SALE  HELD JUNE 13  By Jack Norris, Fred Fraser  GRADES 4, 5, and 6 of Howe  Sound United School held  their Red Cross Sale on the afternoon of Thursday, June 13.  It consisted of a sale of articles  made by the students;' a fishpond and a tea. Thanks to a generous turn-out, all work was  sold, and a total of $56.80 was  made for the Red Cross.  FINED $50  Kenneth Pollock was fined  $50 in District Court Vancouver  for practising dentistry at Pender Harbour, in April without  being registered.  class  then.   He had  to  buy  a  rain test suit, got stuck and was  not much in pocket.   It would  be nice if the men got uniforms  too. I don't mean the kind with  the stripes, ones like the battle-  dress of the soldiers.  Snug uniforms  put  oomph  into  a  job.  Instead of people getting after  the men on the road, they could  tell us to go home and get the  old man's supper.   There is no  reason why road work should  not be lifted out of the rut.   I  am sure some of the younger  men would settle here if they  were sure of something to fall  back on. An acre or two, a cow,  chickens  plus  road  work,  and  maybe  a  little  pension.   They  would be  just as well off,  as  having big money in the city,  and not steady at that.   I am  just    prattling.     I    should    be  winding the clock���an eight day  one.   I  have  never found  out  which is the 8th day, it always  kicks back, striking the hour on  the half hour.  Problems are all  much the same.

Mrs. Stewart  of the China Inland Mission  gave an interesting talk on her  work and life in China during  the past five years. The next  meeting will be held Sept. 9.  Hostesses for the afternoon were  Mrs. R. Mills and Mrs. A. Har-  binson.  HOW CAN I help the second  National Clothing Collection  which the Dominion Government is sponsoring and which  is being organized by the Canadian Allied Relief, under the  national chairmanship of W. M.  Birks of Montreal, in co-operation with local committees?  Many people have been asking themselves this question and  in order to facilitate the work  of the volunteer collectors the  following is a partial list of the  things that are badly needed  by the millions of pepole in  Europe whose homes were destroyed and belongings looted  by the enemy during World  War II.  Suits, overcoats, uniforms,  work clothes for men and boys.  Infant clothes of all types.  Coats, dresses, aprons and  smocks for girls and women.  Shoes in pairs, tied securely  with string.  Caps, felt hats, knitted head-  wear, gloves, woollen socks, underclothing,  piece  goods,  blan-  ^kets, sheets and linens, draper-  ... ies, and remnants.  !r>*^3_Q~ywash^le>^^r^ents' and  goods should be washed, but  they need not be ironed. Other  garments need not be dry-cleaned. Clothes wjithout buttons  are acceptable as supplies of  buttons are now moving kito  lands where the clothing will  be worn.  Items that cannot be baled  should not be given. These include straw hats, feather beds,  pillows and mattresses.  The aim of the National  Clothing Collection, states William M. Birks, national chairman, "is the gift of at least one  garment from every man, woman and child in Canada. That  should not be too difficult in a  country where the people are  among the best fed and the best  clothed in the world."  Letters of good cheer may be  attached to contributions, if the  donors wish to send a message  with their gifts.  Every organizaion and group  ���church, labor, social, welfare,  service and other clubs���have  been invited and have promised  their co-operation, and persons  who are not associated with any  such groups are invited to get in  toufch with 'their community  chairman as soon as he or she  is appoined, so that Canada's  second contribution to Europe's  suffering millions may be successful.  ' All post masters have been  instructed to collect clothing oar  organize committees to do so.  y  vihoioia  JLHvasn nvioNiAOHd Page Two  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B.

THE PROVINCIAL Government  has signed an agreement with  the Federal authorities under  which the department administering the Veterans' Land Act  will have 1,000,000 acres cf  crown land made available for  the settlement of war veterans,  it was announced by the Honorable E. T. Kenney, Minister of  Lands and Forests.  Under this agreement veterans from any part of Canada  may participate in the settlements; schemer and., the Ottawa  authorities will assume full responsibility for the areas thus  settled. Prior to this settlement,  lands had been reserved for  Briish Columbia veterans only.  The selection of areas to be  opened up will be made by the  Federal authorities.  Tenders have been opened in  connection with the bids called  for the construction of an agricultural building at the University of British Columbia.  Lowest tender was submitted by  the Marwell Construction Company, it was announced by the  ���honorable E. C. Carson, minister of public works. Their bid  totalled $37,120.  The lowest tender for a contract for bituminous surfacing  of highways in the Kootenay  district was submitted by Dawson, Wade and Company Limited of Vancouver with a bid of  $52,425.50.

The funds will be raised from  sales of crown timber through  an appraisal system which will  earmark not more than 50 percent of stumpage charges in  connection with sales of crown  timber.  The new plan applies only to  the interior and not to the  coast, conditions in the latter  area being entirely different.  The honorable G. S.

Four  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.  Friday, June 21, 1946  THE PROGRESS of modern medical science,  unsurpassed hospital and convalescent treatment, the diligence of casualty rehabilitation  officers and the co-operation of Canadaian employers are important factors in helping our  disabled veterans on the long road back from  the battlefield in successful re-establishment.  But the most essential factor of all is the grjit  and determination of the individual man or  woman, and the stories of thousands from  Halifax to Victoria prove that our new veterans are imbued with these qualities.  This month, from coast to coast, the Department ci Veterans Affairs i* showing Canadians  just how these veterans are getting along. The  story is one every citizen should know and  understand.  In D.V.A. hospitals across the country casualty   rehabilitation   officers   are   constantly}  A Plan  THERE WAS a grave flaw in the recommendation of Chief Justice Sloan designed to end  the woodworkers' strike. The core of his solution was that the men should accept a flat f if-  teen-cent-per-hour increase. That was a highly  constructive suggestion���and in my opinion  pretty close to what the majority of workers  would consider fair and acceptable PROVIDED  THAT THE UNION SECURITY MATTER  WERE EQUALLY BOLDLY HANDLED  The Sloan recommendation on "union security" was weak. I pointed out in these columns,  long before the Sloan suggestion, and its rejection, that the future status of the unions was  the key log in the jam holding everything up.  The chief justice demonstrated that he was not  aware of the real fear of the men when he said  that, as some two-thirds of the men are members of the union, paying dues of $1.50 per  month the unions have effectively established  their own security.  The loggers in particular remember how the  unions were broken before and how anybody  even trying to organize a-union was fired���and  blacklisted from employment in most other  camps in B. C. Many of the the more hard-  boiled among them feel that, in a year or two  when the coming boom in building has spent  itself, the employers will be talking in a different tune from that of today. The old-timers  feel that once again union will be undermined  and whitled away by HIRING ONLY NONUNION MEN.  There are several degrees of "union security". For instance, the mechanical departments  of most newspapers in North America are  "closed shops" and have been for decades. That  is., every printer who holds a job must belong  to the union���and the employer hires his men  through the union.  . There is no question of achieving the closed  shop in the woodworking industry of Western  Canada at this time. Nor is the so-called "union  shop" the immediate goal. Until the union can  secure a considerably higher percentage of  membership than they now have it would be  unreasonable for them to demand the total  union shop, where everybody must join unions.  I believe the woodworkers' strike could be  fairly ended if the unions were granted the  next degree of union security. It is called  "maintenance of membership" and was worked  out in the U.S. during wartime to meet exactly  needs such as now apply in Canada.  Under this "maintenance of membership"  plan no non-union man, already employed, is  forced to join the union. Those already members are given a 15-day period to resign from  the unions (which virtually none do under  the circumstances). But all the remainder,  must remain union members for the duration  of the contract. Their dues are automatically  checked off the payrolls by the employers.  The employers agree that at no time during  the duration of the contract will they have  on their payrolls a smaller percenage of union  members than when the contract is signed. In  other words, the employers are prevented from  undermining security of unions by hiring too  many non-unionists. ���Elmore Philpott.

However, employment alone is not sufficient.  The real keynote of successful rehabilitation  lies in the participation and intelligent understanding and interest on the part of all Canadians. Charity and sympathy are not the end  which these veterans seek. They seek the right  to mix with their fellows in accordance with  the mental," spiritual and physical facilities  which they possess. If the people of Canada  know the disabled veteran, they will give him  the chance to prove his ability. If they know  him not, they may retain the out-moded approach of pity. In such a way they cannot  help.  The JLost "Weekend  I HAVE finally been able to see the film, "The.  Lost Week-end", that subject of such excited  comment and controversy, whose star, Ray  Milland, has just won the Motion Picture Academy Award for 1945. I can readily understand  it if (as some have suspected) the liquor interests at first opposed the distribution and  showing of this picture. It's dynamite!  Whether or not they disliked, the production  and exhibition of Charles Jackson's indictment  of John Barleycorn, the whiskey people apparently tried to make the best of a bad situation by leaping aboard the band-wagon and  shouting to the world: "See! this is what we  have been telling you all along. Some men  should not drink." But they're whistling in- the  dark. Who's to say which man shall and which  man shall not drink whisky? All the world  knows that alcoholic liquor is habit-forming.,,  One can't continue to invite the devil to  wrestle and expect to come out of the match  unsinged.  The one great lesson to be gain from "The  Lost Week-end" is that liquor is an evil. Not  a single excuse for whisky is presented in the  film, not one pretense of good or helpful use.  It is difficult to understand how the distillers  can gain much comfort from the picture, despite certain propaganda contained therein.  Despite the one or two pro-liquor aspects,  "The Lost Week end" cannot help having what  might be called a sobering effect since it tells  the truth���grim and unpleasant though it be-  about the effects of whisky. One indication is  audience reaction. At first many laugh at Don  Birnam's schemes to get liquor, to hide it, to  circumvent his brother's attempts to help him.  Then they snicker at his drunkenness. But soon  the laughs are not genuine. There may be hysterical giggles at the ravings of a man with delirium tremens, who fancies he is attacked by1  swarms of beetles, but even these die down. To  any thinking person, "The Lost Week-end" tells  a helpful story. The over-all effect is to show  that John Barleycorn's a dangerous fellow to  trifle with.���Christian Science Monitor.

By MAISIE DEVITT  RADIO, that blatant, blaring child of Marconi's fertile brain, has  never been to my mind an unadulterated boon. True, there  was a time when crouched over a rickety battery set, my kid  brother and I were thrilled to the marrow if we were lucky enough  to get some dance music. But all too soon the first fine frenzy  faded in a welter of soap operas, singing commercials and tobacco  auctioneers. The the other night I tuned in on a program that  really hit a new low. Uncle Kosmos was explaining the funnies,  for all those who were missing their Daily Province on account  of the nasty old strike. A completely humorless voice saying "And  the next picture says Pow!" There ought to be a law!  Speaking of the funnies though���I don't think people realize  how far-reaching is their influence. For instance, my infant child  is talking quite fluently these days but with an accent never heard  on land or sea. It had us completely baffled until the other afternoon, when feeling sleepy, he remarked, "Gung bad now Mommy."  Something clicked.

Anyone who takes on a thankless job in a good cause should at least  be entitled to courtesy.  I liked this plea from the Seamans Gazette: "Don't hold out  on us.
