About  10:30  Thursday morning she went for  P walk in the wood_ taking the  |ifle with 5her. When she didn't  i$eturn  after a few hours had  passed    by    her    two    young  laughters, Dorothy 10 arid Shirley  8  became  alarmed  at her  "absence and started to look for  |er but could hot locate her.  It  fasn't   'until     the     children's  |ather returned home from his  I'ork, in the woods that a real  Search .'_ or her was made.  With  |he aid of his partner, Roy Gib-  Jon   and   eniployees   of   their  lBrm, Cribspn & MacNeal Log-  ling Co/, they scoured the nearly woods looking for Mrs, Mac-  geaL    Mr. ��� Gibson   fbund / her  ^pdy several hundred feet from  ^er home with a bullet hole iri  ief head.

Mr Henderson's subject was  The Making of a Daily Paper  and he described the operation  from the moment the type was  run until the papers were tied  up in bundles of 50. It was a  treat to watch the faces of the  guests ��� while Mr. Henderson  talked of paper and presses, and  as the men had been served a  delightful dinner by ladies of  Gibsons W.A. he had good subjects to work upon.  The district' council of the AO  TS is sending a group of eight  from Vancouver to Gibsons  Landing on Tuesday May 7,  when they will confer upon the  Gibsons group its charter.

By ROBERT BURNS  TEN YEARS ago, in an effort to improve the medical situation in the district, the Howe Sound Farmers' Institute  invited all local organizations to send delegates to a joint  meeting to consider the whole matter. The response was  unanimous, and at the meeting it soon became apparent that  considerable study of the whole question was needed before  any sound program could be undertaken.  Accordingly,   a  series   of  meetings were held, with attendance by representatives  of the district from Hopkins  ive medicine, and checking of  epidemic disease; in this great  success has been achieved; during  the  period   of  the  V.O.N.

The committee therefore called a  general meeting of the public, which was held in the  -rTT ,      T     i...    ,       -i    n .     .      cte�� aui   t"<e <:ar,  ana neavy  Women's   Institute   hall   at   pair ,bills and lrepiacement  -Gibsoxt's* '    "  The cost of the work is considerable, running from $2,500  to $3,000 per- year; a good deal  of the cost stems from the large  strung-out district, many miles  of roads to be travelled, night  and day, and the roads are all  too frequently in poor condition.

He    moved to  Roberts   Creek  soon  after  the  Vancouver fire in 1886, and was  married to Alice Roberts, aunt  of Billy    Roberts,    of  Roberts  Creek.   In 1903 he moved with  his family to Gibsons Landing  where he bought a farm and  settled down for the rest of his  life.  He is survived by his wife,  two  sons,   Thomas  of  Wicker-  shaw,   Wash.,  Herbert  at  Gibsons Landing, and three.daughters, Mrs.  Sandy    Fawler     of  Squamish,   Mrs.   Roy   Cole   of  Prince George, and Mrs. Noble  Kendall of Vancouver. Services  were held in St. Bartholomew's  Church.   Mr.   Steinburner   died  of inatural causes and it is believed he was about 83 when he  passed away.  Mrs. Greig has returned from  Toronto and will take up residence here  permanently. ;  Mr. and Mrs,. Eckford spent  the weekend at -Soames' Point.  GIBSONS   LANDING���Property owners of District Lot 685  held a  meeting  in the United  Church on Friday evening April  26, Jack Inglis presiding.  Main  article on the agenda was the  proposal to incornorate into the  Village municipality of Gibsons.  A previous meeting had voted  in favor of incorporation,  and  the  village  commisisoners  had  fl^oroved the project, providing  that the levy from the original  municipality;1   where     develdD-  ment is relatively complete, be  not spent on developing water,  roads, etc. in the new section.  . Advantage of the incorporation, as explained ' by Robert  Burns, was that although the  tax rate would probably rise in  the new area, tax collections  could be largely employed towards, local improvements rather than being sent out of the  ^district to Victoria to be reallocated from there A motion  was passed that a letter be sent  to Mr. Bracewell, inspector of  rhunicipalities,; asking that he  iriiplement the decision to amalgamate the two areas.  New officers elected at the  meeting were "Dr. Harley Anderson, president, and Donald  Cochrane, secretary.  r    - ,- * ���   ^ ��� ������ . .  rAt 'this meeting many pertinent   questions   were  put,   and  considerable     discussion     was  held; finally it ~was resolved to  go forward with the plan suggested,, and a provisional committee" appointed to form; under  the". "Societies' Act", an organization "to   be   known   as   the  "Victorian , Order    of   Nurses,  Elphinstone  Branch",   the  said  organization   to   inaugurate    a  nursing service under the auspices of the Victorian Order.  . This was finally accomplished, and the. nursing; service was  commenced in'-July, 1938/ by  Miss Lillian Wording, wh6 had  had much: experience with the  Victorian Order in different  parts of Canada.  The  work  of  the  nurse  extends from Williamson's Landing,  on  hte  east,   to  west  Sechelt,   a   distance   of   about   20  miles;   the   work   includes   the  duties   of. school   nurse   to   all  sehools    in    the    area,    public  health work under the provincial     department,     educational  work,   well   baby   clinics,   bedside nursing, pre and post-natal  visits, etc. During the year just  closed,  1945, the V.O.N,  nurse,  Miss   Betty   Short,   made  2,046  visits of which 58.6% were bedside   nursing   visits;    visits   to  schools   totalled   317;   to   communicable    diseases-  :252    (103  measles); chronic cases, 331; infant instruction visits 186, and  baby clinics were regularly held  at Sechelt and Gibson's Landing.     Co-operating    with    the  University of British Columbia,  in   providing   actual   field   experience for their trainees, three  of their students worked with  Miss Short for" two weeks each.  OBJECTIVE  A   primary   objecive   of   the  work is in the field of prevent-  '-���'** Fluids' _#? *the': wo^fcriar^ derived from:  Grant from the provincial  government; payment of grants  for school nursing by local  school boards; fees from patients; membership fees in the  branch; donations by public-  spirited citizens and organizations.  INCREASING COSTS  During   1945   about   the   half  of total  revenue  was  received  through     government     grants.  The branch is now faced with  the!   problem   of   steadily   increasing costs,  owing to much  added   work   due   to   increased  population and greatly increased   costs   of   operation   due   to  higher   prices.    There   appears  little prospect of obtaining any  increase in government grants;  therefore larger sums must be-  raised locally if the work is to  continue.   During  May  of  this  year a drive for funds is proposed, through which help will  be solicited from all persons and  organizations who can be contacted.  It is most essential that  htis work, now well established  and  of proven  value shall be  continued.

POTATO growers have  been warned by the provincial department of agriculture  to plant only certified seed since  21 carloads of imported potatoes contaminated by the crop-  destroying ring rot disease have  been delivered in Victoria and  Vancouver to ease the current  potato shortage.  Because . of the very acute  shortage of potatoes the government was not insisting that the  shipments of the inefcted potatoes be returned to the U. S., although it realized the dangers  of allowing these potatoes, to be  imported; officials said the consumer must be considered.  "Growers should be warned,  however, that very serious danger exists," said Dr. J. B. Munro, deputy minister of agriculture for the provincial government. "No grower should plant  anything but certified seed potatoes. I should like to have  this warning broadcast as widely as possible."  Commercial insitutions could  use the infected potatoes without any danger providing the  peelings and sacks are destroyed  by burning. The potato itself  is harmless on the table and its  eating qualities are not impaired, v  "But if they get into people's  back yards or into the farm areas, there is grave danger that  future potato crops in this province will suffer from the ring  rot disease we have been at such  pains to control and stamp out  for many years," said Dr. Muri-  ro.  emony in which the three young  children of Mr. and Mrs. P.

REUNION FILM  It is hoped that arrangements  can be made for the showing ^f  the film, Reunion in London to  all the returned boys and girls;  and their immediate relatives.  Many suggestions were piit  forward fof the gala day .of July  1st, which are being; studied,  and as soon as the plansi are decided upon announcement will  be, made.

The public  of Powell River will have an  opportunity of thus showing  their appreciation to the lads  and lassies who donned the uniform for their splendid efforts,  said the committee.  Details of this collection will  be announced shortly.

All expressed the opinion  that Westview was on the  threshold of a period of great  expansion and saw great possibilities for the district.  THREE SHIPS IN  Unofficial opening of the new  wharf came Wednesday morning when three coastal steamers were in dock. They werfc  the Princess Mary, Lady Cyn->  thia, and an oil tanker.  At 6.30 a.m. the wharf was a  hubbub of activity as the 'Mary'  pulled in. Passengers, onlookers and trucks filled the dock  giving it a brisk start on its new  career. Agent Bolo Gordon was  in the thick of it, distributing  freight cargoes ready for local  truckers to move out to consignees.

Friday, May 5,- 1946  ��  e  CONSIDER the 'editor! A child is born to the  wife of a merchant in the town. The physician getteth 50 bucks. The editor writeth a  stick and a half and telleth the multitude that  the child tippeth the beam at nine pounds. Yea,  he lieth even as a centurion. And the proud father givith him a White Owl.  Behold, the young one groweth up and  graduateth. And the editor putteth into his paper a swell notice. He telleth of the wisdom of  the young woman and of her exceeding comeliness. Like unto the roses of Sharon is she and  her gown is played up to beat the band. And  the dressmaker getteth two-score and four iron  men. And the editor getteth called over because  the dress was tulle and not tule as he stated.  And this daughter goeth on a journey. And  the editor throweth himself on the story of the  farewell party. It runneth a column solid, for  which he paid the women's editor a couple of  bucks. And the fair one remembereth him from  afar with a picture postcard that costeth a nick-  Behold, she returneth, and the youth of the  el. s  town fall down and worship. She picketh one  out and lo! she picketh a lemon. But the editor  calleth him one of our promising young men,  and getteth away with it. And they send unto  the editor a bid to the wedding, and behold, the  bids are printed in a far city.  Flowery and long is the wedding notice  which the editor printeth, and for which he pay  his girl three bucks for writing. The minister  getteth ten rocks for his parish and the groom  standeth off the editor for a 12-month subscription.  All flesh is grass and in time the wife is  gathered unto the soil. The minister getteth his  bit for the parish again. The editor printeth a  death notice, two columns of obituary, three  lodge notices, a cubit of poetry and a card of  thanks. And he forgetteth to read proof on the  headline and the darn thing be printeth: "Gone  to her last roasting place."  And all that are akin to the deceased jump  on the editor with exceeding great jumps, and  they pulletti out their ads and cancel their subscriptions, and they swing the axe even unto  the third and fourth generation.  Irma Grese Cult  LIKELY enough, as reported from Nuernberg,  girl students in Germany are organizing  themselves into an Irma Grese Society, to perpetuate the memory of the directress of the Belsen killings and tortures, and to invest her with  something akin to sainthood. If young men are  maintaining an underground nazi movement,  ���why not young women?  Nazism was not a male creed exclusively,  nor distinctively, nor was Hitler's extermination organization composed and promoted by  men alone. Women were for the nazi policy  with eaual if hot greater zeal, millions of them.  They taught it to their children, these girl students included. The latter are only carrying on  the teachings of their mothers, as the boys are  sticking to the doctrines their fathers proclaimed and fought and died for.  Both these developments were to be expected. It v-rviir! bo <*"r^rising if they had not happened. Po surprising as to create suspicion that  the sudden inversion from nazi tenets to decency was only sham. That the female of the  species.is as persistently malicious as the male  there is no room to doubt. The Grese woman is  a fit idol for such perverts to worship.  For the Allies the moral is plain. They  have to count on the potential mothers of the  nazi breed passing on their murderous tradition to their children, ably assisted by the fathers-to-be who were schooled in the same code  �� Published Every Friday  by  The Coast News Limited  Registered office���Powell River,  B.C.

A FREE PRESS IS THE PRIVILEGE  OF A FREE COUNTRY  of bestiality. To eradicate the satanic creed, even to the point of making Germany safe for  non-nazi Germans cannot be a matter of two,  three or five years.

ON NEW YORK City's Times Square not so  many years ago there was an enterprising  newspaper salesman who experimented each  night with headline-shouting. The words he  bellowed had no connection at all with anything that appeared in the papers he held under his arm. His aim was not to broadcast news  but to sell as many papers as he could as quickly as possible. Perhaps the most succesful bellow he ever evolved was this:  "Extry! Hitler elopes with Greta Garbo!"  (This was before the war.)  He used it every night for many months  and by now has undoubtedly retired to his farm  estate and his horses.  That was in New York, where people are  interested in movie stars, elopements and scandals. In Washington, the world's capital (well,  half the world's) where people are concerned  with politics and government, where diplomats  and emissaries and military attaches in strange  uniforms buzz with gossip of the latest international intrigues, another newsboy has recently  hit on the same idea his colleague once had in  New York. He, too, has been experimenting  with phony headlines and he seems to have hit  upon a best-seller���at least he hasn't changed  it for months. It is:  "Sinatra Dead!"  Plight-to-Come  WE ALL know theoretically that history is being made daily, but has anyone thought lately  kof the possible sad plight of the school children  of 1960? Even those of us who don't care to  say how long ago we took our last school exam  can recall that favorite type of question: "Explain briefly the following items:", and our list  included such terms as 54-40 or Fight, courer de  bois, black robes, and the like. Any one of these  sounds completely lucid compared with the  humdingers that the small fry of 1960 will have  to tackle.  Will little Aloysius get 'A' for his explanation of maintenance of membership, pay-as-  you-go, priority, take-home pay, reconversion,  to say nothing of the alphabetical perplexities?  Incidentally, parents of 1946, can you explain maintenance of membership?  Bible Readings  FORASMUCH as ye know that ye were  not redeemed with corruptible things,  as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your  fathers; but with the precious blood of  Christ, as of a Lamb without blemish and  without spot: Who verily was foreordained  before the foundation of the world, but  was manifest in these last times for you.  ���1 PET. 1: 18-20.  Poet's Corner  Treasures  Some may wish for gems of beauty,  Or for pearls with all their charms,  But for me the dearest necklace  Is my baby's loving arms.  All the perfumes of Arabia,  All the jewels men vnayi prize,  Are to me not half so precious  As the lovelight in your eyes.  Fortune's smile may be upon me,  But her gifts so rich and choice  Do not fill my heart with gladness  Like the music of your voice.  Dewdrops on a rosebud's petals,  Silver notes the robins sing,  Golden buttercups in springtime  Happiness to my heart bring.  ���Nell M. Phillips  By Donald Morton Stewart  PROOF OF THE PUDDING  WITH TWO world wars o'er and  perhaps another to come, our  politicians their guitars busily  strum. Party politics is the tune  they play as World War -III prepares day-by-day. Just as Nero fiddled while Rome did burn,  so our politicians foolishly strum  in their turn. Oh, ship of state,  God help you now! as Party  Politics strive to veer your  prow.  "If spies and saboteurs are  kept in jail- our Canadian democracy cannot fail to fail. Turn  our spies loose to run free and  at large," so runs the tune on  our politicians' guitars. In Russia, spy suspects are given short  shift . . . that they are out of  hand is no fairy tale myth; but  in Canada, "Democracy is sure  to fail, if we don't free our spies  on bail."  "M.     P.'s,     M.L.A.'s,     cipher  clerks and all who with a totalitarian   power    have   tried    to  play ball; to them rush all the  comfort   and   every   democratic  aid���we have guitars and they  are    going    to be played.   The  foundations    of    Canada    may  tremble   and   shake   but   party  politics, you know, have a great  deal at stake; we'll strum our  guitars,  even if all the strings  break, because our political fortune we're determined to make."  Igor Gouzenko, Russian- born  and bred, sipped of democracy  and it went right to his head.  "It is wonderful, he says, "to be  in  Canada  and free.  No  more  totalitarianism   for   my   family  and me."   But, back to Russia  Igor dare not proceed, for 'the  dead  tell no  tales'  is  Russia's  realistic creed.   Even in Ottawa  his life was sought by men^r-to-  talitarians, who swore he should  ne'er speak again.  All who dream of communism  his story should heed, for only  the RCMP could succor Igor in  his hour of need. In Canada, the  state is the servant of all; in  Russia, the state is backed by  ready powder and ball. If the  Russian system to you appeals,  go there to live���just see how it  feels. Igor Gouzenko's experience is proof enough for me���  like him I love democracy ... I  want to be free.

Wood Pulp Waste  May Be Used  For Feed  EXPERIMENTS on converting  wood pulp waste into badly-  needed high-protein cattle feed  will be undertaken at Oregon  State College.  Representatives of west coast  pulp and. paper mills said in  Portland, that it may be possible  to develop the feed from mill  waste, which now tends to pollute streams.  The Oregon State College research will be based on methods  used in Germany during the war  to produce yeast for human and  animal consumption.  The studies, which will develop improvements on the basic  German process and also include market investigation, will  be conducted by the industry.  The pulp and paper industry  in British Columbia is watching  the American experiment closely, but a spokesman in Vancouver said that he doesn't think it  feasible  industrially yet.  "Germany and Sweden developed the process during the  war" he said. "In fact, that was  the way Germany fed most of  its cattle. If the process is practical here, we will surely adapt  it to our uses."

C.  _    Page Seven  r  A  COMRADES, have you heard of  the glorious "Battle of the  Gravel Thrown"? Ah, comrades,  it is saga to rank with the best  of those in the Viking tradition.  Here are the facts as I know  them, or, as I have heard them  reported:  I  The Public Works had a truck  :,. operating in the vicinity of  [j Thunder Bay for a couple' of  days before Easter. Yea, that is  correct. It was "operating." I  do not know just how many  shovelsful of gravel were hauled but there must have been  several, at leas*. The Public  Works is a fighter and worked  j] like a Trojan right up to the  j last minute, dying, as it had  fy lived, with its boots on. Signs  J of its titanic struggle to trans-  f form our cow paths into the  f, slightly higher category of cow  >J trails, are plain to be seen by  the knowing eye.  Driving   from   Westview   to  j Thunder Bay by the most direct  route,   you  eventually   descend  the hill which ends hear Larn-  >er's   gate.     Shortly   thereafter  iyou strike the first vestiges of  | gravel.     This    gravel   becomes  | heavy, heavier, and heaviest and  \ soon all doubt is removed from  I your mind.  It is actually gravel  vyour  wheels  are   churning  on.  I Then THUMP!  BANG!  CLATTER! RATTLE!  CRASH! SULPHUR! X! XX! Z X! SILENCE!  3 Panting from your exertions  | with the English and any other  ^language you know, you gaze  jlwith a new respect at the "grav-  lelled road" winding before you.  ��And, like a serpent, it has  ijconked you with all the terrific  porce of a 30-foot anaconda's  isteel-hard snoot, for, at almost  Ithe identicial instant your front  Springs reacted to the wheel's  jjreactidh to the concealed bump,  jfyour head impacted (or was it  anine?) with ya brace or poist or  jsomethihg, in the. top of your  fear. You rub your sore head re-  jjflectively and reflectively re-  falize the gravel has been spread  fan with all the glorious, wasteful abandon of a bakery's icing  jon a layer cake. True, the ruts  Jire  harder  tp. see.   And  f^el?  res, tlfey' even feel harder.  Warily   continuing   on   your  "J|vay, you .cross the Rubicon  (a  pridge at Barehufe's and IVIaur-  ce's Lane junction)   and zoom  ilong another patchy bunch of  Ipumpy    patched    6f    gravelly  jjhumps and come to that sharp  kurn which led to the non-survival of the local Public Works  gjpecause, not only do you come  |t0 that  turn,  but so  did  they.  iTheir ijfrdrit-wheels   negotiated  fehe turn and emerged, shimmy-  fpg,   oh  the  other  side  of  the  Icovernous, rutted mudhole,  or,  |as some terni it, yawning mud-  iholde rut.   The rear end duals  made the turn but, it is alleged,  they also made the rut and become so attached to it they declined -to- leave on the request of  or even goading from the engine.  Aha so it came to pass, a  whoel load of gravel came to be  dumped in,  on, or  about,  this  one hole.  I have been informed, .so nonplussed,; or honminused,or non-  gravelled, or something, Wjas the  | Public Works' over losing this  I whole load of \yaluable cargo to  ^the hungry, gaping maw of this  jwone insatiable hole it became a  J prey to constant worry, fell an  | easy victim to mental depres-  ision and finallywenfcbff its feed  ��: entirely. ��� Bucee^eidihg   loads   of  i grayei; gr^iialry   lost   weight,  I tapered off, tninned down to almost  nil     The  Public  Works  never rallied    from" the;  first  shock of losing that load of pebbles, hundreds, yes perhaps evil en  thousands   of  them.   ' That  load,. be it known, will always  be engraved on the memories of  Thunder Bayers, present and  future, and will be pointed out  to others as a monument to the  last-ditch stand of the P. W. Department, which wenft down  with all colors flying, fighting  fiercely to the last-flung shovelful, to preserve us from an existence worse than death���an  ox-cart exisence in the atomic  age.  From that time on, the  strength of the Public Worsk,  our staunch defenders, ebbed  fast, dribbled away by the  sparse shovelful and eventually  petered out entirely. If you care  to spare the time and effort to  make a solemn pilgrimage to  the scene of that final magnificent last stand, in which the  unconquerable, indominitable  Public oWrkers went down to  glorious defeat after fighting a  losing, rear-guard action by  casting shovelsful of dirt at the  hotly pursuing ruts and bumps,  I shall be happy to guide you  over the battlefield.  Here you will find a shovelful of gravel, cast in furious defiance at the hateful, grinning  face of a pursuing rut. There,  25 yards farther on, is another,  hurled valiantly at a root-hole,  with that primitive urge to self-  preservation which has so often  been a marvel to science. One  man drove the desperately pursued, desperately driven, fugitive truck, while two hard-  pressed men in the rear expended the slowly-diminishing load  of ammunition, for the enemy  was so very close during the  greater part of this epic rearguard action the dirt-throwers  did not have time to aim, much  less to throw. The titter ferocity  of this hard-fought engagement -  may be judged by the wide spacing and often inaccurate aiming of the telltale splotc"nes of  precious gravel. Here one that  landed smack iri the puss of a  malignant rut. There one, which  although missing an evil hole  entirely, doubtless struck terror  to its very soul.  The last act of this enthralling  drama occurred directly in front  of my lane. Here the exhausted  rear-guarders, brought to bay at  last, pale and with drawn, haggard, suffering faces, scuttled  their remaining ammunition, almost half a load of precious  grayel. In their panting, bosom-  heaving trembling excitement,  their eyes a-gleam with battle-  lust, their final salvo missed a  mudhole in my lane with sufficient gravel to have almost exterminated it. But these worn,  shock-weary, shock troops, these  modern, jousting knights in  bone-drys, were past caring. Although they scuttled their remaining ammunition they retreated in good order, their calloused hands tightly gripping  their precious shovels, hoping "  and praying they might yet,  once again, be granted the opportunity of coming to grips  with their hated enemy���the  holes, ruts, stumps and whatnots of the Thunder Bay cow  paths.  So nobly expired the Public  Works fbllowiiig their epic,  ihasterly-^xeeuted retreat from  Thunder Bay, for, since we have  had no word of them from that  night up to the present, we now  know our worst fears have been  realized. Perhaps in soine dim,  distarit and misty P W valhalla,  these vaMnt men will <e6rifahue  to satisfy their battle-liist and  will ride once again to tilt their  gleaming shovels at mddholes  and potholes.  The last words of these lovable,      rollicking,    magnificent  battlers, words which so typify  the spirit with which in life  they were imbued, will forever  be inscribed on the hearts, the  minds and the memories of every grateful Thunder Bayer. So  they may the better be remembered,, I have put them into a  little verse:  We heard them exclaim as they  fled from our sight,  Happy Easter to all and to all a  Goodnight!  Our cause is just and with  all our might  We'll be back after Easter,  to renew this durned fight!  Without a doubt, his men went  -down fighting grimly, if hopelessly, to the last for, since they  have not returned as promised,  they must have succumbed to  the wounds received in what is  to go down in tactical history as  The Battle and Defeat of Gravel Thrown. In loving respect to  their undying memory, could  we not all adopt their motto:  He who shovels and runs away, lives to shovel another day?  Perhaps, on future dark  nights, like Drake's Drums in  the English Channel, ghostly  shovels may be heard clinking  along the narrow, winding paths  of Thunder Bay and late wayfarers may hear eerie voices  chanting high, sad, but infinitely  sweet and tender and clear above the whispering murmur of  the forest foliage:  Our cause is just, our cause  is right,  Potholes and mudholes  we'll continue to fight!  I would suggest that, on each  Easter Eve at 4 p.m. a period of  one minute golden silence be  observed in respect to^ their  memory.  Let us stand with hats off,  coats and shirts too, if necessary,  in a loving monument of remembrance to our valiant fallen  in the Battle of Gravel Thrown.

The film depicts the growth  of community effort stemming  from a project started in the  Lantzville school, Vancouver  Island. The presentation is an  inspiring study of how people  of a small rural community capture the vision of co-operation  ���how the children under adverse school conditions better  their surroundings on the suggestion from a far-sighted, progressive school inspector���how  the lesson in living is carried;  to the parents and the resultant  effect it had in giving them new  hope and inspiration ahd assist-  munity consciousness that reed them in moulding a com-  sulted in the kind of world they  wanted to live in.  Co-featured with this film is  one titled Young America  Paints in color from the National Art Gallery of Canada at  Ottawa.
