 ., VICTORIA.  Cochrane  raniham's Ldg.  uesi Speaker  Mr. Donald Cochrane, B.A.,  M. Sc, was the guest speaker at  the monthly dinner of the A.O.-  T.S. on Friday, March 22, at  Gibsons Memorial church. His  subject, "Science and the Bible"  was unorthodox and most interesting and caused considerable  discussion.  17 members enjoyed a delightful dinner which was served by  Ladies of Harmony group of the  WiA. Community singing led by  Mr. Marsden with Walter McGowan at the piano helped to  make the evening a very happy  event.  (See text of address inside).  Aucoin Children  Christened  By Rev.

With this feeling predominant,  the National Film Board is releasing three films on its rural  circuit ��� Howe Sound-Sechelt Peninsula ��� dealing with  racial and religious tolerance. These films ask why with  identical basic needs, men in different countries throughout  the world fali to live together in a civilized fashion, but  live instead in a turmoil of international intolerance and  ignorance.

Mr. Charles Alexander was  accompanied by his wife when  he returned last weekend. His  home is in Vancouver and his  wife came up for a weekend  trip.  Kleindale residents were  shocked to hear of the death of  Robert Klein, son of Mr. and  Mrs. John Klein of Campbell  River and formerly old time  residents of this district. Death  resulted from a logging accident at Elk Bay on Monday last.  Robert was their only child  and was 25 years of age.  Peter and Wilfred Klein,  of the deceased, made a hurried  uncle and cousin, respectively,  trip to Vancouver to attend the  funeral.  Annual Meeting  Of V.O.N. Elects  New Officers  AT THE annual meeting of the  Elphinstone branch, Victorian  Order of Nurses, held recently  in the Legion Hall, the following officers were elected: Honorary president, Dr. A. M. Inglis; president, Mr. R. Burns, 1st  vice-pres., Mr. G. A. Marsden;  2nd vice-pres., Mrs. C. A. Jackson; sec.-treas., Mrs. D. F. Donaldson. The organization had a  very busy year with a big increase in the calls for service.  New Dam Insures  Adequate Water  Supply at Landing  DETAILS were released at the  last meeting of the village  commissioners on the proposed  new water dam. This dam will,  increase the reserve of water  from 2500 gallons to 300,000 gallons and should insure an adequate supply of water through  the dry season. A building permit has been issued to Mr. Martin Carlson for a new residence  and a permit for alterations issued to Mr. James Harrison.  The film is a composite of  short films with Mr. Frank  Foulds, secretary of the citizenship branch, department  of state, introducing the  films and making pungent  comments between.  The first film "Toward Unity",  moving from nation to nation in  travelogue form, shows people  at work and play, pointing out  the basic sameness of humanity.  The only difference between  people in various countries are  those of appearance and of the  methods by which they perform  goes on to point out that men  the same daily tasks. The film  make capital out of racial discrimination. By means of propaganda whisperings, the world  spasmodically becomes crucibles  V of hatreds.   Children, the film  Ift^f^P^&o^ft^^  dices which Afflict adult living.  These children are the future  generations of humanity. When,  they are suitably educated they  will acquire none of the manias  of maturity. The way to unity  from dissension is the task  which lies in the hands of the  men and woman of today.  SECOND FILM  "World We Want to Live In",  the second film of the release,  shows the steps America took to  counter the spread of racial and  religious intolerance which began to spread throughout their  country as far back as two decades ago. The film points out  that while exponents of racial  intolerance in Europe began to  burn churches, books and regulate the lives of European workers, groups of thinking men and  women met to discuss construe-  itve ways to promote racial  democracy.  SURVEY  "Weapon of War", the third  release in the group, is a historical survey in cartoon form of  the way in which the salesman  of "Hitler's blood tonic" spread  their propaganda first throughout Germany, arid later throughout the rest of Europe���the fear  caused by "Look out for the  country behind you���the country in front of you���the country  beside you" ��� the film points  out, split Europe into a continent of hatreds���America, whose  people come from every country  in the world, and who worship  according to any of 259 different religious creeds, was in Nazi  eyes, an ideal place for the  spread of intolerance propaganda, the film indicates.  SHOW DANGERS  These three films  on a na-  #orialrinity theme show why it  is necessary that the Canadian  people���that men and women in  every  country���understand  the  way in which the  propaganda  machine of racial and religious  intolerance is put into operation,  in order that concrete steps may  be taken to counteract its spread  and   that   democracy   may   be  made a living and working reality.    These films on national unity  will form the discussion part of  the monthly circuit showings to  be made at the following places.  Monday, April 1 ��� Gibson's  Landing.  Tuesday, April 2 ��� Robert's  Creek.  Wednesday, April 3���Sechelt.  Thursday, April 4���-Half Moon  Bay.  Friday, April 5���Garden Bay.  Harold Box, NFB field representative, will lead the discussion period and show other films  of interest to the communities.  "Let George Do It  ff  THERE are we understand, several pet way of getting rid  of stumps so as to make way for  a garden. The way most of of us  amateurs know best, seems to*  be by the sweat of the brow,  and the use of an axe, a root-  axe, some wedges, and lever?.  Hearing the roar of an engine,  and seeing George Turner mining same, we stepped over.  Slowly, steadily, unbelievably  a stump with all its roots ws  rising >from the earth. Tip-tilting  itself, it somersaulted, showing  nice brown loam for gardening.  Looking around we counted several upheavals and asked if that  had all been accomplished during the day. "Just this afternoon" was the answer.  EQUIPMENT  Now, it may be that this is  also the answer to that stumb  ling block of a stump that  stands in the way of your adjustment-after-victory garden.  It does seem where there's a  will there's a way, and if a  stump has resisited all your  blondishments, then maybe you  need the engine of an old car,  some specially constructed gears,  and lots of cable, with some  ingenuity, and a George at the  helm.  To answer demands from  Canadian schools and other  groups for films about Canada,  the National Film Board has  initiated a series of films on  Canadian communities. Regions  covered in this series include  the Peace River, Fraser Valley,  Pacific Coast, Grand Manan, the  Prairies and Quebec.  Powell River. Page Two  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.

CONTINUING our series on  "Pacific Coast Place Names",  you may recall that captain  Richards commanded the survey vessel "Plumper" 1856-59  and the survey vessel "Hecate",  1860-63. The Plumper's first objective was to discover the  starting point at the coast for  the International Boundary line  ���the 49th parallel.  We saw how Howe Sound  names centered around admiral  Howe and his fellow admirals,  captain and all heroes of the  "Glorious First of June, 1794"  victory over the French.  Jervis Inlet, the subject of this  article, centers around Admiral  Jervis and his compatriots in"  the victorious battle of Cape St.  Vincent on St. Valentine day,  Feb. 14, 1797. This time the  Spanish were vanguished. As a  reward, Sir John Jervis became the Earl of St. Vincent the  following June. His father was a  barrister-at-law and counsel for  the admiralty, and auditor at  Greenwich Hospital, Sir John  had been a school friend of general Wolfe of the battle "Plains  of Abraham, 1759."  Wolfe had a presentiment of  his death.and requested a private interview with Jervis then  commanding a sloop o' war.  Wolfe left in Jervis care a miniature of his lady beloved, to be  returned to her in the event  of his death. Carrying back dispatches to England Jervis returned the beautiful miniature  to Miss Catharine Lowther, But  we will Write more later of this  great disciplinarian and his as^  sociates.

T  HAT the tide of settlement and business expansion is definitely  flowing towards the West was never so apparent as it is to-day.  With its vast natural resources, its open ice-free ports with their  splendid terminal facilities, its abundance of power, its climate so salubrious  as to permit of year-round operations; British Columbia is unique from  the industrial standpoint.  ^ War-iime expansion has created a new economic situation, has brought  new industries into being, has introduced new processes, and developed  new uses for the raw materials which are the basic wealth of the Province.  British Columbia has experienced the greatest relative increase in  population of all the provinces in the past few years.  Industry Invariably Follow People.  Business Makes Business.  In moving to British Columbia, industrialists are influenced to a  large extent by the feeling that this Province offers in itself a great  and growing market.

Friday, March 29, 1946  EVERY country and province has some  distinctive feature about it, something  more or less peculiar to its own region.  B. C. has more than the ordinary share  of peculiarities and leading among them  are magnificent scenery, the tremendous  richness of our resources and our orphan  towns.  Our orphan towns are usually little industrial communities depending on some  privately-operated factory isolated from  the larger centres of population. Concentrated closely around the business central  activity of that community are the stores,  homes, community hall and other forms of  recreation and communiction. Usually  these units are owned and operated as a  public service by the same firm that has  the main mill, mine or operation that is  maintaining that community, and the  place becomes known as one of those  heavily criticized "company towns".  Company towns are not necessarily orphan towns, nor are orphan towns necessarily company towns, but in general the  two  seem  to  go  together.    In  contrast  Powell River is one of the largest company towns in B. C. and Trail is another,  yet neither is particularly isolated from  its neighbroing communities, each having  road   connections   fairly  reasonable considering the topography.   On the  other  hand some orphan towns or communities  like the fishing village of Egmont and  mining community of Zeballos are quite  independent of central authority or control by private persons, but are "orphans  by choice"  One sharp line presents itself in our  coastal "company-orphan towns" however  ���in that they are nearly always within  a short distance of independent business  towns which could well use the population  addition of the adjacent townsite to the  advantage of both places. Thus we find  a place like Port Mellon next to the struggling and rapidly expanding village of  Gibsons* Landing, but completely ': sepa- ->  rated from it by some seven or eight miles  of water, although only six miles of road  would be necessary to connect with existing road systems to join the two places.  Similarly, we find Squamish, a struggling community at the head of Howe  Sound commanding the entrance to interior B. C. at the critical "in-between-age".  It is too large and important to be ignored,  yet too small in population and business  to support public utilities such as a hos- '  pital (which could serve for many miles  up the P.G.E. line and all lower interior  B.C.), nor can it support a dentist, a  library, a full time theatre and many  other services to the extent that such a  community with the importance of Squamish should have.  Within six miles of Squamish we see  two industrial towns, more or less complete living units in themselves, yet completely isolated from the rest of the world  except via Vancouver, some 30 miles distant.  Populations in the three towns of Woodfibre, Squamish and Britannia are all over  the 1000 mark, and all approximately the  same size. Yet each is dealt with through  Vancouver, for it is actually as easy to go  there as it is to go from one to the other  and return. Again the same situation  prevails for Port Mellon-Gibson's Landing  and the Howe Sound islands of Bowen,  Anvill, Keats, Gambier.  If it were possible to add together the  three populations at trre head of Howe  Sound we would have a consolidated business area of some 4,000 or more people,  which would warrant expenditure of  moneys for public services. The industrial  towns of Woodfibre and Britannia would  not have to maintain separate libraries,  theatres and medical services, but could  put a third share each in larger units,  which, by being three times as large, could  be expected to give that much more coverage, and mofe extensive service.  The industrial towns would still be  secure units in themselves, as Powell River  has remained, yet the adjacent village of  Squamish (it will be a village soon we  believe), could have enough to make itself  the business centre it should be.  The road from Squamish to Britannia  is now half finished. It has been built  through the worst type of mountain obstacles to be encountered, and, when finished will give a view of grandeur down  Howe Sound that will challenge: scenic  views throughout,the world. ^  Only some two and one-half or threle ^  miles of the five-mile road needs to be  done, yet throughout the war there have  always been shortages of men and material. Thank goodness there must then  be a reserve of finance for it, and action  is expected here before the year is out,  for the shortage of men is accounted for,  and the material is lying along the route  to be used.  When a road commission is put to work  they might well study a program of bringing into civilization our orphan towns, and  thus allowing our country to develop.

A FREE PRESS IS THE PRIVILEGE  OF A FREE COUNTRY  able tidbits of Spring is the succulent  shoot of the garden pea. We recall that  our own garden was shamefully raided  last year. One day we stood and admired  the straight "rows with every pea in place,  every seed having given a good accounting. The next day we looked in consternation and dismay. Something had happened. Big gaps appeared where but the  day before had been sturdy growing green  shoots. Then we saw and learned. Mr.  Robin hopped over arid with a poke and  a pull he demonstrated how neatly it was  done.  The suggestion came to our minds to  spread a protective cover against such inroads but another though quickly took its  place. This merry harbinger of Spring has  travelled long distances and has at last  "come home?\ Once more he nestles his  nest companionably and trustfully at our  door. "Help yourself Mr. Robin and we  will plant a few extra rows and fill in the  gaps. The sunshine you bring to our  hearts will be ample payment. You are not  an imposter, you are our invited and  welcome guest.  By H. M. L.  There  are  three methods  of  roasting meats in your electric  oven.  The best way to cook tender  cuts of meat is to place the  meat on the greased broiling  rack over the pan or right in  the shallow pan with a minimum of fat or dripping and  leave the pan uncovered with  no: water added. For dry meats,  put some dripping or sueton top:  of the^ v meat also; The^ second  andythirdfways .of roasting are)  the most practical niethods as  the shrinkage; is less Xand the ���  meat retains its juice and tenderness as well as: being well  cooked all through.  First: Pre-heat oven to 450  degrees, put meat in oven and  after 15 minutes, or when the  meat is seared nicely brown,  turn top element off and the  heat control to 350 degrees and  finish roasting at that temperature. Thirty minutes will be  necessary for searing roasts of  9 lbs. or over.  If your oven is not automatically controlled, after 15 to 20  minutes, turn top element off  and lower elment to low ancl  the temperature will slowly decrease to the right degree. If  it gpe��: bglow the 350 degrees,  return lower element to high  to keep an even temperature  during roasting.  Approximate time for roasting meat is as follows: Beef,  medium to rare, 20 minutes per  lb. Thirty minutes per lb for  well done. Veal, 30 minutes  per lb. Lamb and pork, 35  minutes per lb. Chicken, 25 to  30 minutes per lb. A trick in  roasting chicken is to wrap a  piece of heavy waxed paper  around the fowl and use only  the  lower element.  Second: Pre-heat .ov<en temperature to 350 degrees (mod*  erate), place meat in oven a^but^i  four inches from bottom, and  after 15 minutes switch off top  element. An additional 10 minutes per lb is necessary for this  method, but it is really the most  economical as there is practically no shrinkage to your meat.  Third: Put your meat in the  oven. With the top element  only, bring the temperature up  to 350 degrees and continue  roasting at this temperature.  Having set your automatic control at this degree, it will stay-  there.    If,  however^  you  have  no control, turn the lower element to low when the 350 degrees is reached and if the temperature lowers, turn back to  high again until right degree ,is  resumed. For this way of roasting, it is necessary to add 15  to 20 minutes to the thrie as  given above, as the oven is cold  to begin with. ;/  When you are roasting meat  and it comes time to put the  vegetables; in' the oven,; tund  both elements; to high again for  about ten minutes until the*  oven temperature can take care"  of the cold food put in.  BROILING  Put the broiling pan and rack  in the oven and leave about ten  minutes with only the top element turned on. Remove pan  and rack from oven, grease  rack and place meat on.it. Then  return to the oven, having the  meat one to two inches from  the top element. Leave the  door ajar while broiling, to al-'  low the steam to escape After  about 5 to 6 minutes, turn the  meat to brown oh the opposite  side. Cook to your personal  taste. Steaks require 10 to 15  minutes and chops 15 to 20  minutes. Salt after iheat i*  browned.  If you find your meat is not  done to your taste in the times  given above, it indicates that  your voltage is low and extra  time should be given to take  care of this. It will' not take  you long to learn just how long  the cooking will take. 0ne  should never take any food from  the oven at the exact time specified by any recipe without* first  testing to see if it is cooked  properly^ as even the altitude  enters into the cooking time of  certain foods and tests should  . .be. .made:  I  Suggestions of foods that can f  be broiled: Any l^d"6r^me1ati  patties, chops, steaks, bacon, I  raw ham/ fillets and slices of ^  fish. Sausages should be parr ���.  boiled     five     minutes     before j  . broiling.    Per-cooked   slices   of f  turnips   and   parsnips   brushed  with dripping are delicious. Po- ^  tato and rice patties are good, \  too.  These should both be pre- ;{  cooked and seasoned then rolled L>.  in buttered crumbs.    Any mild  dripping can be substituted for  butter; bacon dripping is very  tasty....'.. Fridaj', March 29, 1946  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B.

By Adelaide  "LYING" is a problem that usually arises in all small children in one .form or another,  though it is rather a harsh word  to apply to what is often the  expression of a vivid imagination or a lack of understanding  that what he is doing is wrong.  A child should play "pretend"  games when he is very young  so that he may learn the difference between what is real  and what is fancy. The wrong  kind of questioning will often  lead to a lie hr reply. If a child  comes in crying don't say "Did  Johnny hit you?" 6ut "tell me  what happened". The power of  suggestion in the first question  may bring a reply of "yes"  when something quite different may have happened. A child  will lie io avoid punishment  and often to gain attention. If  a child persists in lying when  he knows that it is wrong then  he must be lied to.  Jimmy was a little boy who  lied continuously so one day his  father promised him that on  Saturday morning they would  go to town and buy him the  new wagon that he wanted very  badly. Saturday morning arrived  and a\ the appointed time Jimmy as dressed and ready with  shining expectant face���"Are  you ready to go Daddy?'* "Go  where?"���"To town to buy my  new wagon" "Oh, that! We're  not going to town to buy you a  new wagon, I was just lying to  you for fun as you lie to me sd  often." Jimmy as almost sick  with disappointment but he  never lied again. Such drastic  measures are seldom necessary  for the small child, who, once  he understands that lying is*  wrong will not persist in doinjp  so^-but parents be sure thtit  your example is good!

Although  little is known about the old  man he was one of the city's  oldest residents having been  here for approximately 50 years.  He has no known relatives.  Think of Reason  To Claim Credit  BELIEVE it or not, there's one  veteran of World War II in  Salmon Arm with a re-establishment credit of about $700 who  cannot claim the money because  he can think of no valid purpose  under the regulations for which  he can legally spend it.  The pligh of this rare veteran  was recounted at a meeting held  in the Salmon Arm Canadian  Legion hall recently when the  various benefits to which returned service personnel are entitled, was explained.  This man is single. He is employed on a farm and his wages  include room and board. While  there are ten headings under  which he can apply for his re-  establishment credit, none were  applicable to his unusual case.  After much puzzling thought,  he recalled that he owred about  $100 to the Federal treasury for  income tax since before he enlisted for active service. Consequently, he applied to the authorities to use part of his re-  establishment credit to liquidate  that old liability. The officials,  - however, doubtless enmeshed in  miles of red tape, denied his application, ruling that he could  not use his war service for that  purpose.  If the veteran were married,  he would have no difficulty  whatever in collecting the  money lying to his credit. But  when asked whether he intended or had ever considered  joining the ranks of the Benedicts, he replied:  "Definitely not. Hudson's Bay  blankets are cheaper!"  Operation Completed  WHEN a woman travels by air these days she expects to be  able to board the plane and fly away���at least that's  the way Mrs. S. J. Evans of Edgehill had it figured when  she went down to the C.P.A. float at the Shingle Mill yesterday morning.  But she failed to reckon on a collection of tugs, scows,  barges and shingle bolts that had somehow managed to  surround the float.  When the plane landed, the pilot took one look at this  accumulation and shouted across the water "You'll have to  come out in a boat. I can't risk the plane near that stuff!"  With two husky lads nearby (your reporter and Roy  Daly), it was a simple matter to launch one of the numerous  kayaks in the vicinity, instal Mrs. Evans, and row her out  to the plane. The pilot helped her aboard and away they  went.  SELMA PARK  MRS. W. D.

This co-operation is no less necessary to  assist in organizing the employment mafket  during  the present critical period.  Some manpower controls still remain.  These are still law. They are aimed at assisting  in organizing the employment market.  Remaining controls are designed to help  employers and workers ���rand actually reg. uire  only minor assistance from the public.  YOU ARE URGED TO COMPLY WITH  THE FOUR CONTROLS WHICH REMAIN:  1���Employers MUST notify the National Employment Office of any need for workers, as soon  as that need is known.  2���Where employers engage workers outside the  National Employment Service they MUST  notify the nearest NES Office within three  days, that an employee has been engaged.  (Form NSS 312 is provided for this purpose.)  3-���Unemployed workers seeking employment  MUST register wiiji the National Employment  Office if unemployed for seven consecutive  days.  4���Generally speaking, any employer or employee MUST give seven days' notice to the  other party of any intention to terminate  employment. (Form NSS 120 is still required.)  Exceptions may be learned from the nearest  NES Office.  The partners to industry���employers and  employees���should help the National Employment Service to promote a high level of employment by complying with these simple rules.  Only with public support can an employment service give full assistance to the community.

End of Bus Fund  Comes May 31  AFTER 36 months of operation  the system whereby all servicemen and service-women ride  free on buses in Powell River,  will terminate May 31st.  This was the decision reached  at the regular monthly meeting  of the Powell River and District Board of Trade, held in  the Golf Club House, Thursday  night. . ... ,  Under the system, the Board  of Trade, each of the villages  of Cranberry, Westview and  Wildwood, Powell River Stages,  Wildwood Bus Company and  the Powell River Company each  contributed to the fund to enable members of the services to  ride free on the district buses.  It was felt that there were  not sufficient servicemen in uniform here to warrent a continuation of the practise.  High.praise for all organizations who contributed to the  fund was expressed at the meeting. One member stated that  the Powell River community  was the only one he had seen  where such a service was extended to members of the armed forces.  An expression of appreciation  ta all who contributed to the  fund was-voted at the meeting.  New Appointees  Are Well-Know"  Lumbermen  ANNOUNCEMENT has been  made by Mr, George W.

March  22, at Gibsons Memorial Church.  *    *    *  I saw a wonderful sunset  once": the sky was painted with  crimson ahd gold as the sun  dropped into the western sea.  Is that true? Yes; it describes  exactly the effect that the sunset had on my mind. Is it scien-'  tifically accurate? Not a word  of it. We all know perfectly  that the sun does not set, and  certainly does not drop into the  ocean; there is no such thing  as the sky, and if there was, it  could not be painted. Now let  me give you a scientific descrip-  . tion of the same phenomenon:  "As the* planet on which we  live revolved until the sun's rays  struck tangehtially at the spot  where I was, I noticed that the  shorter light rays were refracted out by the atmosphere, and  only the longer ones impinged  upon the retina of my eye."  How would that sound if you set  it to music? It's scientifically  correct, and not the least bit of  use for anything whatever. The  wonder and glory of the sunset is one thing, and the study  of physics is something different. Is there really any contradiction between the two statements? Not the least; one is a  true statement of the feeling  that the sunset gave me; the  other is a scientific statement  of a physical phenomenon. And  if yOu had to go through life  without sunsets or without  physics, which would you  choose?   Yes, so would II  RECORD  That Is th�� state of mind that  we should bring to the study  of the bible. It is a record of  people's thoughts and feelings,  hbt a: text^bbolr of geography,  ���geology, astronomy or botany.  If it had been written in scientific language���and some of  those writers knew more science  that you might think���it would  have been no use at all for the  purposes it was meant for. Most  people would never have known  any more about it than I know  about Einstein's works, and how  would that help them to live  bravely and die happily? v The  bible was written in the lian-  guages of the common people,  and used thoughts that they  could understand; the thing  could not have been done in  any other way; and to say the  bible is untrue because1 it is  not scientifically accurate, is  about as reasonable as calling a  man a bar because he said the  sun set.  But one very jjjood man said  to me, "The bible must be inspired; every word of it must be  true, or else it's nothing at all;  if it isn't the Word of God, it's  just a book lute any other  book."  COLLECTION OF BOOKS  The first answer to that is,  that the bible is not a book, but  a library. Jt is a collection of  books, written in the course of  a thousand years or so by all  sorts of people���and the people who believe in it have never  been able to agree among themselves as to i which books snould  be put in and which left out.  The collection we use, which is  not the same as the one the  Catholics use, represents a general average of the opinions of  a number of students who lived  a long time ago. It contains a  number of books that some of  them objected to, such as the  story of Ruth, and the Book  of Revelation; and leaves but  several that some of them accepted, such as the Wisdom of  Solomon and the story of Judith. There seems to be no satisfactory way of deciding what  is an inspired book and what is  not. j  DELETIONS  Not only whole books, but  parts of books have been discarded from our bible. The  - Book of Daniel, in the Jewish  Bible, begins with two entertaining chapters about Bel and  the Dragon, and Susanna and  the elders. St. Jerome, an early  Catholic theologian, did not like  those - chapters very much, and  put them at the end of the book  instead of the beginning, and  there you will find them, in the  Catholic bible. In the Protestant bible ��you won't find them  at all. Is it possible to believe  that exactly those books and  parts of books that have found  their way into our collection in  this haphazard fashion are entirely different from all other  books and parts of books?  NOT WORD OF GOD  The fact is that the bible does  not anywhere claim any such  thing. It does not claim to be  the Word of God. Wherever  that expression occurs in the  Old Testament it refers to some  particular idea or thought,  which seemed to the man who  got it so wonderful that he was  sure it came from God. In the  New Testament it refers to  Jesus and his teaching, not to  any book. This idea that'every  Word of this particular collection of books came straight  from God, is a device invented  by men,* to save themselves the  trouble of thinking.  Thinking, you know, is the  hardest work in the world, and  most of us will do anything to  avoid it. That's why people be-,  long to political parties, and religious denominations, and so  on. It's so much easied to buy  your thinking ready - m a d e,  whether in the bible^ or a newspaper, Or a socialist publication,  then to think for yourself.  ST. AUGUSTINE  There is nothing new in all  this;   you  can tfind   something  very like it in the writings of  Saint Augustine, who lived sixteen hundred  years  ago.   This  Augustine   was   a  Roman  who  had a good scientific education  before he  became a Christian,  and he understood a great deal  more about science than  most  people did  at  that  time.   The  Greek philosophers had already  found  out that the world was  found; they even knew almost  exactly what size it  was���and  some   of   the   Christians   were  ajrguihg   with   them   that   the  world couldn't possibly be round  because  the  Bible   everywhere  treats of it as being flat.   The  heavens   are. spread   over   the  earth like a tent; the sun lives  in a tabernacle at the end of  the earth; the Devil took Jesus  up to a mountain so high that  he could see all the kingdoms  of the* earth; there are a dozen  statements   like   that,   proving  that the earth must be flat. Augustine did not argue the point;  he was a bishop, not a science  teacher.    He   simply   told   his  people  not to  try to  compare  science with the Bible, because  they   would  only  make   themselves look foolish. What, a pity  that the Christians of that time  did not listen to him! They gave  him a saint; but they did not  when he was dead they called  him a siant; but they did not  pay any attention to his advice.  SUPPRESSION  The Church suppressed the  scientists, most of the scientific  books were burnt, and for a  thousand years Christians believed every word of the Bible;  and those thousand years are  about the filthiest in history.  They are full of ignorance, poverty, misery hardly imaginable  and cruelty that even Hitler  can hardly match���because men  contented themselves with believing instead of thinking. At  last a little science began to look  into the world again, and the  church was on the alert to crush  it. Galilee proved that the  world turned around,, and had  to take it back.-The Bible says  that the earth standeth fast, that  X cannot be moved, so .Galilee  had the choice between calling  himself a liar, and being burned  alive. Being a wise . man, he  agreed to let the world stand  still; another teacher, Bruno,  stood up for the truth, and was  actually burned alive.  We cannot get out of this by  blaming it all on the Catholic  Church; the Protestants were  jus as much afraid of knowledge.  When Copernicus published ��� his  explanation of how the world  goes around the sun, Martin  Luther wrote a violent attack  . on him, because his ideas did  not agree with the Bible. And  so it goes. In every age there  are a few men who think and  many who object to that process  altogether.  AUTHORITY  Jesus certainly didn't treat  the scriptures (that is to say the  Old Testament, for of course  the New Testament was not  written until years after he  died) with any exaggerated respect. He used them as authority,  to back up his arguments, because the Jews believed in them;  but when he disagreed with  them, he did hot hesitate to con-  trodict them. "You have heard,"  hesays; "that it was said to them  of old time, Thou shalt love thy  neighbor and hate thine enemy;,  but I tell you, Love your enemies." Even the ten commandments did not seem to him particularly holy. Some of the  church people objected to his  ���working on Sunday,, because "in  six days the Lord made Heaven  and Earth, the seas and all that  in them is, and rested the seventh day," and he contradicted  them flatly. "My Father is working right up to now", he said,  "and I work too."  I did not intend to speak of  Evolution at all today, but I  just want to say this: that I  don't know any clearer statement of the theory of evolution  than those words of Jesus. "My  Father is working right up to  now." Jesus knew that God did ,  not make the world in six days,  because he saw the process still  going on, as we can see it still  going on. Might I say that I  don't think God has got the  world exactly the way He wants  it yet?  SCIENCE AND RELIGION  ��But if you take away the in  spiration of our Holy Book,  what is there left? The answer  is that the more you take away,  the more clearly the personality  and teachings of Jesus shine out.  All the wonder stories that grew  ' up about him in the years before  the Gospels were written; all  the complicated theology that  Paul wove around the simple  Gospel can go; and then we  have a chance to see Jesus.  There are all sorts of disagreements between science and the  Bible; there is no disagreement  at all, and there can never be  any disagreement, between  science and religion. "True religion and undefiled, before God  the Father is this: to take care  of the widows and orphans, and  keep yourself unstained." Anything unscientific there? "And  what doth thy God require of  thee but this: live honestly; love  to be kind; don't be proud";  most of the scientific men I have  known were that sort of people.  NEW COMMANDMENT  Jesus said, "I give you a new  commandment." He didn't think  the original ten were enough, so  he gave a new one; and what  was it? Thou shalt keep Sunday? Thou shalt go to church?  Not in the least. Thou shalt not  drink, smoke or gamble? Oh, no.  "A new commandment give I  unto you, that you be friendly  to each other." It that all? Is it  all? Try and do jt, and you'll  know whether it's all or not.  It's something that very few  churches have accomplished; it's  the hardest thing in .the world.  It's much easier to quarrel with  your neighbor about religion  than it is to be friendly with  him; it's ever so much easier  to get on one side of this science-  and-the-bible argument, and  despise everybody on the other  side, than it is to be friendly  with everybody; it's easier to  come to church, and pay a minister to tell you how to be good,  than it is to be friendly> with  your neighbor's children when  they feel like making a noise.  Any thing's easier than just being friendly���and nothing's any  use without it.  At least that was Paul's opinion: "Though I speak with the  tongues of men and of angels,  and have not friendliness,���I  might as well be a radio". Isn't  that what Jie says? Look it up  and see; First Letter to the Corinthians, chapter thirteen. The  whole chapter is about the advantages of friendliness; I'll  just give you a verse or two.  "Friendliness never fails:  preaching will fail, tongues will  cease, science will vanish away  ���and there remain honesty,  courage, friendliness, these three  and the greatest of those is  friendliness."

Automobile Accessories  and Repairs  A FLOCK of thirteen Trumpeter  Swans wintering on a swampy  pond near Nanaimo B.C. has  been wiped out by lead poisoning. This disease occurs in  waterfowl which have eaten"  lead shot. Ducks, geese * and  swans occasionally feed in ponds  where hunters have scattered  quantities of lead shot. The pellets are eaten by mistake, or  in the  place of grit. '  The trouble was first noticed  by provincial game warden  Greenfield. At that time, only  nine of the swans had died. An  investigation was made immediately by J. A. Munro, Crief  Federal Migratory Bird Officer,  Dr. I. M. Cowan of the University of British Columbia, and  Dr. Clifford Carl of the Provincial Museum. An attempt  was made to remove the lead  pellets from those birds which  had not died but without success. The poison had already  .taken effect.  The Trumpeter Swan, largest  are rarest of North American  waterfowl, is fully protected in  Canada and the United States.  Efforts are being made to restore its numbers beyond the  danger of extinction.  The dead birds will be studied  and mounted by the University  of B.C. and the provincial Museum.

AN OBJECTIVE of $500,000 has  been set for British Columbia  in the United Church of Canada  pension fund capital campaign  which will start on April 28.  A provincial Campaign committee has been organized with  Alan H. Williamson of Vancouver as chairman, C. T. McHattie  and Dr. Andrew Roddan as vice-  chairmen. The committee includes Phil Malkin, who will be  in charge of special names, Matthew Sutton, H. R. MacMillan  and others.  The United Church provides a  pension of $20 a. year for. every.  year spent in the ministry. Thus  a minister of 40 years  experience gets $800 a year on retire- -  ment.   Ministers pay from five .  to seven percent of their salary  into the fund and each organization contributes to the fund.  The superannuation fund is.  assisting at present in supporting 824 ministers, 752 widows,  and 88 children and there are  2600 ministers paying into .the  fund. The average pension paid  to ministers of $557 annually  and to widows $376.  Blubber Bay Notes  Recent visitors at the home of  Mr. and Mrs. J.
