Heavy pressure is being  brought to bear on the federal  government by the . Canadian  Retail federation to admit into  Canada, free of duty, any class  or kind of merchandise not now  being manufactured in Canada,  but the government, needing  continued high revenue, is reluctant to forego this source of  income.  The two-point rise in the cost  of living index during the month  of May, and a similar rise forecast for the month of June, convince the opposition as well as  the government that determined  effort must be made to hold  controls.  The   government   is   embar-  of the Spanish dictatorship.  SOCIALISTS ACTIVE  The' Saskatchewan' CCF government's active y/arfare against  widespread farm weeds ��� particularly mustard and stinkweed  ���now includes airplane spraying with 2-4-D. This is the first  time in Canada an airplane has  been used for such low-flying  spraying, and is feasible only  on level ground.  To expand fishing projects,  Saskatchewan government has  set up a royal commission to  study production, processing,  marketing of prairie lake fish.  With a fleet of 21 buses covering x 3,300 miles of highway,  the Saskatchewan government  now plans adding 27 more buses  to its operations and increasing  correspondingly the highway  mileage.  Control of consumer credit by  Saskatchewan provincial authorities is in the cards, and the expectation is that a minister of  the crown with a special department will be organized to  do the regulating.  The Saskatchewan government is going*to set up a factfinding committee to inquire into "parity" prices for farmers  and "parity" wages for workers.  ber.

Pressure by the Canadian Legion arid welfare organizations on the British government to debar entry is next  expected development.  Behind the government's plans  to get more workers back to the  farms, including the recent removal from unemployment insurance benefits of young men  now unemployed by having  farm experience and refusing to  return to the farms, are the following statistics: 30 percent of  Canada's total working force is  engaged in primary agriculture,  16 percent of her working force  is engaged, in food processing  and distribution, 32 percent of  her manufacturing plants are  food plants, 12 percent of every  dollar invested in Canadian  manufacturing is in food pro-5  cessing plants.

Transportation  Limited  Vaucoui^r Jggrge  illtary Operations  "CODE names were both colorful and significant," says the  . Christian Science Monitor in an  article dealing with titles given  to various military and naval  operations during the recently  concluded* war.  Many of the titles originated  with'   Winston   Churchill*   who  shifted   "Crossbow"   to  "Body-  . line" when Nazi rockets became  a major peril.  "You can practically hear the  chuckles," says the Monitor,  "that .must have run through  American headquarters in Europe when they gave the name  to OPERATION GRAB BAG.  "And any remaining notion  that the British have, no sense  of humor must have disappeared along with OPERATION  NIP-OFF and OPERATION  PUFF.  During the war, some of the  code names for military undertakings were grimly humorous.  OPERATION ELEPHANT was  code for the job of looking after  Prime Minister Churchill. One  of its features was a mobile antiaircraft battery that followed  him everywhere...  A REAL GRABBAG  There is little now to restrain  the name-makers. GRAB-BAG  suddenly appeared in the news a  few days ago. This was the seizing of smugglers' boats on the  Danube River by soldier "constabulary" and special agents of  the United States Army.  PUFF was the recent evacuation of 750 Eurasian women and  children from the interior of  Java to Batavia., It was done by  Britishr troops. .���-NIP-OFF was  the British repatriation of Japanese from .Southeast Asia.  STORK, also a British operation, involved the evacuation of  children from Holland and Belgium after the war.  General Eisenhower's latest  report, on the European war has  focused interest on operations  heretofore not known generally  by their technical names:  The operations to seize the  bridges over the Rhine River  were MARKET (airborne) and  GARDEN (land).  OPERATION VARSITY was  the airborne assault across the  Rhine River.  UNDERTONE, was the major  offensive south of the Moselle  River.  GOLDFLAKE was the process  of moving units of troops from  Italy to the Western Front.  In CLARION, 9,000 aircraft  took part in a general bombardment against German-occupied  Europe.  The amazing operation that  took the men off the beach at  Dunkirk in 1940 was called  DYNAMO.  These code names have many  a hidden clue. COBRA was the  plan of attack at St. Lo, France,  where seven weeks after D-Day,  the American First Army began  the breakout from the Nor- ���  mandy beachhead. .  CHURCHILL PICKED THEM  Mr. Churchill was the originator of many a 'code name. When  he chose one, it always expressed how he thought about the  siibjectY For example when he  wanted to name the German  rbckets, he called them CROSSING W, suggesting a cluihsy  weapon. Later when the rockets  became a'menace, he changed to  BODYLINE, which students of  cricket will recognize as unfair  tactics. !   .  ���  The majority of the original  operational code hanies concern  the European theatre of war.  This was probably due to the  numerous invasions aand phases  of attack there.  The first big operation was  TORCH, the invasion of North  Africa. There followed HUSKY,  the invasion of Sicily, and soon  after that, AVALANCHE, the  invasion of Italy. GRAPESHOT,  the Arno River (Italy) push, occurred some time later.  Then came the Second Front.  The actual invasion of France  was called OVERLORD; its first  phase was BOLERO, the stockpiling of material and the training of men, and the assault  phase was NEPTUNE. SLEDGEHAMMER and ROUNDUP, preliminary plans of invasion of  France, were canceled.  BY ANY OTHER NAME  The assault' crossing of the  Rhine in late March, 1946, was  known to Headquarters as  PLUNDER. The Canadian crossing in the north was VERITABLE, and the American drive  to invest the Ruhr was GRENADE. The invasion of southern  France was called ANVIL.  The following are the secret  meetings of the top men and  their JCOS (Joint Chiefs of  Staff), which were all labeled  with a code name:  TRIDENT ��� Roosevelt, Churchill, JCOS-Washington, May,  1943.  QUADRANT���Roosevelt, Churchill, JCOS-Quebec, August,  1943.  SEXTANT���Rposevelt, Churchill, JCOS-Cairo, November,  1943.  ARGONAUT ��� Roosevelt,  Churchill, Stalin, JCOS-Yalta.  OCTAGON���Roosevelt, Churchill, JCOS-Quebec.  Operation PLUTO was one for  puzzle fans. Between England  and the coast of France, there  was laid a Pipe Line Under The  Ocean.  Although the Pacific area did  not have as many operational  code names, there were some  that were very clever.  The occupation of Japan is  known as BLACKLIST, the  sinking of 24 Japanese submarines was called ROADS  END, and the proposed invasion  of Japan, OLYMPIC and CORONET.  When Admiral Mountbatten  and General Stilwell went on a  mission to invest Burma it was  called CAPITAL. The invasion  of Burma was called DRAC-  ULA, and the feeding of starving hillfolk there was HUNGER.  Among the Pacific amphibious operations were GALVANIC  (Gilbert Islands), FLINTLOCK  (Marshall Islands), and FORAGER (Mariana Islands).  Two groups of specially trained  American   troops   in   China  were   named    GALAHAD   and  MARS.

Every Army command post,  from Allied headquarters down  to the smallest service company  orderly room, went by a code  name���often one based on the  commanding officer's home  town or the name of his wife or  perhaps a horse or puppy. Telephone exchanges were also in  code to minimize the information  to be gained by enemy spies  from tapping Signal Corps  wires.  Most famous of all, perhaps, is  OPERATION CROSSROADS,  name given to the Atom Bomb  tests at Bikini Atoll.

Friday, July 19, 1946  TEXADA NARRATIVES  OTTAWA'S determination to fight inflation in Canada with the same old  weapons of price control and subsidy is  seen to be re-affirmed by the dollar parity  move, The Financial Post observes editorially. The weapons have been changed  a little, btfjt are still basically the same.  "It is to be hoped that horrible examples of U. S. price increases in the  early days after demise of OPA don't  scare Canadian officialdom into reversing  or slowing down its domestic decontrol  policy," says The Post. "If labor leaders  will let their followers stay on the job and  produce goods, it is to be expected that  the general U. S. price, level will soon lose  much of its violent upward thrust. It is,  of course, commonly expected that U. S.  prices generally will level off substantially higher than the present. It has long  since been recognized in Canada that,  human nature being what it is, our mighty  price control machinery could not completely stop price increases,' only keep  the brakes on, slow down the rise, give us  'controlled inflation'.  "Production, torrents of goods, dynamic  new enterprise, the maximized flow of  trade���those are the only ways to price  stabilization and the avoidance of inflation  disasters. Canada must continue to progress with the de-control job.'*  Q  9  The Restless Wren   ,   Relaxed Controls  WHERE does a wren get all its energy? The  house wrens, for instance, build substantial  nests and raise two broods a year, seldom less  than four to a brood, sometimes twice that  number. They give the chicks good care, feed  them generously, watch them with vigilance  until htey can fend for themselves. That should  be enough for any pair of birds. But so energetic is the cock wren that he spends much of  the season building extra nests or hoarding nest  material that will never be used.  This dynamic mite seems to be fascinated by  any possible hiding place for his nest material.  He simply can't pass up a clothespin bag,r for  instance. But his judgment is erratic. HeThas  been known to spend a whole day trying to fill  a pair of bathing trunks with twigs. And he  will seek out any pair of overalls or work trousers hung to dry and stuff each pocket with  twigs. Housewives have found their best enk  broidered pillowcases stuffed with such wren  hoardings on many a Monday evening When  they went to bring in the washing.  Out of curiosity, one countryman hung a capacious old couch cushion cover on the line  where a particularly energetic cock wren would  surely find it. He left it there six weeks, and  day after day that wren strove to fill this remarkably convenient hiding* place.    Not ever^y|Ys  a  hour of every day, to be sure, for he took time  out to patrol the nest where his mate was brooding, to gather his share of food for the eventual  chicks, or merely to sing his own sweet song.  But at the end of six weeks he had stowed away  three-quarters of a bushel of twigs in that one  cushion cover.  The old adage about the busy bee and the  energetic ant might well be supplemented by  one about the restless wren, one of the most  persistent workers that ever spread a wing.  Other Opinions  "A MAN OF PECULIAR VIEWS"  GEORGE Blair Gordon is president of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association. He is also  president of the Dominion Textile Company.  He is also a man of old-fashioned���one might  almost say, reactionary���economic ideas.  Mr. Gordon's peculiar views were clearly  brought out at the C.M.A. convention in Toronto last month. He told members that Canada would have to produce more than ever before in order to maintain financial stability,  provide adequate employment, and keep her  place among the trading nations of the world.  It is evident that Mr. Gordon has lost touch  with current thought on the subject of economics. Accordingly, we are pleased to provide  him with a skeleton outline of present-day economic theory, as follows:  (1) The best way to maintain employment  is to go on strike; (2) the less you produce,  the  more  there  is  for  everybody;   (3)   if  people work half as long, they double their .  output, and should therefore be paid three  times as much; (4) wages have absolutely  nothing to do with prices; (5) there is no  such animal as a consumer���and if there is,  he is probably a Fascist; (6) if all the'factories were run by the state, their production would be so vast that none of us would  need to work or pay taxes.  This is only a dough outline, of course: if  Mr. Gordon wants something more extensive,  he can write us a letter and say so.   Better still,  he can go to practically any mass meeting and  bend an ear.   He will hear all this and more.  Much, much more."  ���THE CALGARY HERALD  WAGE CONTROL in the Dominion is to be  relaxed. War labor boards will be given  power to grant increases where these seem  "just and reasonable", in the cases of employees  earning more than $250 per month. This blanket easement is of course aimed to induce stability in* industrial affairs, to speed up the  handling of appeals for wage adjustments, and  to avoid interruptions of production.  That something was needed to bring about  these happy results has been obvious, for  wage disputes have beenv^&ppling the industrial machinery at a time when this should be  operating at a maximum. The power thus given  to these boards will have to be exercised with  discretion if these desirable results are to be  achieved without stimulating inflation. Marking up the scale of wages can be dangerous  unless there is a corresponding increase in the  output of things to buy.,  ��    y,  .        .

Harry Trim stepped  onto the beach, pulled his small  boat up and fastened it. He  walked over the clean little  pebbles, crossed the driftwood,  then went up the hillside among  the firs and cedars where salal  grew thickly.  What made Harry Trim, fisherman, head for Texada Island  that bright day in 1871? What  made him choose that particular  spot of land? Perhaps a sudden  wind sent him ashore.. yMaybe  he wanted a break from the  day's fishing in his cramped  quarters. Or perhaps it was just  that he was destined to open, all  unconsciously, the second chapter in Texada's history.  CONTRAST  What a contrast existed between Harry Trim, fisherman in  1871, arid Pilot Jose Maria Nar-  vaez, explorer in 1791. Both  sailed the same waters, bpth  looked with interest on Texada  Island. But Naryaez and his  ragged sailors, in their battered  schooner, flying the flag of  Spain, were a far cry from Harry  3 Trim, solitary fisherman in a  neatly rigged craft. Texada  Island linked them.  Yet Trim was a discoverer too.  As he wandered up the steep  hillside that day, his attention  was caught by unusual rock formations and colors. Pieces of  reddish rock were here and  there. A whole bluff was daubed  with the rusty tones.  TnMYchippe ;  found metallic indications inside. He kicked away the mossy  grass from the ground and found  more evidence of iron.  Excitement speeded the action  of Trim. He hurriedly examined the rock and ground to the  east and the south . It looked  as though a whole iriountain of  iron protruded from the earth.  He gathered samples of his  find and carried numerous specimens away from Texada with  him.  Trim took his ore samples to  his friend, S. P. Moody, part  owner of the Moodyville sawmill on. Burrard Inlet. Mr.  Moody's /interest '.was aroused.  However it was nearly two  years later when in June, 1873,  Trim and others actually proceeded to secure the property.  Almost at once the "Texada  Scandal" burst into the public  eye.  Professor Niels Bohr says the  nucleus of an atom is so dense  that a fist full of such matter  would weigh a billion tons.  MARVELUBE  OIL  Get the best out of your  high-speed motors!

She  is 12 years of age and was blinded in an accident three years  ago. You would expect such a  tragedy to spoil the child's life,  but it hasn't.  "The other kids are so good  to me!" she exclaims. "They  play singing games and sitting-  down games, so I can play too."  This is true. Whenever Helen  comes out of her house the children flock around her1 to talk  and sing. They all love her. She  is so bright and cheerful and  tells them such wonderful stories.  "It's lucky I wasn't born  blind," she says. "I can remember colors and scenes. When:  the kids play with a red ball,  I know what it looks like."  "Don't you miss reading?" I  asked the child.  "Oh, but I can read ��� by  braille." She smiled. "I'm learning my lessons, too."  One of Helen's best friends is  an old man, badly crippled. Arm  in arm, they go for short walks  around the neighborhood. He  guides her footsteps and she  helps him along.  Million Dollar  Dam Project for  Campbell Lake  THE B.C.

Following the submission of  a report by Dr. C. E. Dolman  after his visit to eastern Canada, it was estimated that there  was little likelihood of the faculty of medicine being established for at least a year, but  following the conference between Dr. MacKenzie and the  premier, it is likely that a fresh  approach to the problem will  be made with a view to utilizing existing hospital facilities  in Vancouver, rather than waiting for the time when a university hospital could be constructed. The premier is hopeful that as a result of a reconsideration arid resuryey of the  situation by Dr. MacKenzie  that he may be able? to surmount the 'difficulties in connection with assembling a staff  so that the faculty may be established and ready for students in the fall season.  POWER COMMISSION  The B.

The foundation has been  completed for the new Diesel  power plant at Smithers and  work has started on the foundations for the new power house  at Vanderhoof.  INSPECTORS TO MEET  School inspectors from various parts of the province and  officials of the department of  education will meet from July  16 to 20 in Victoria, under the  chairrnanship of H. L. Campbell, chief inspector of schools,  it was announcde by the department.  The chief matter under discussion in all probability will  be the difficulty of school administration which has developed since the redistribution of  school districts was carried out  in April under the terms of the  Cameorn report.  OFFICIAL APPOINTED  J. R. Pollock of Victoria has  been appointed as director of .  visual education, a new branch  in the provincial department of  education, it was announced by  the office of the minister of  education,, the Honorable Dr. G.  M. Weir.  Mr. Pollock will commence  his duties on August 1, when he  will undertake a survey before  suggesting a comprehensive visual education plan to the department.

TOURIST ACCOMMODATION  With more than 600 tourist  camps now in operation, a total  of 75 new tourist camps are  now under construction, it was  announced by the Honourable  Leslie Eyres, minister of trade  and industry.  The B.C. Travel Bureau,  however, issued a warning that  at the beginning of* next season,  this province will have to step  up promotion in order to secure  tourists. High standards of accommodation will have to be  maintained in order to keep  tourists in the province.  RELATIONS  Resumption of the inquiry  into provincial-municipal relations by H. Carl Goldenberg,  will start shortly, Premier Hart  announced.  Mr. Goldenberg will return to  Victoria on August from,Montreal, in.! order to complete his  work in drafting a report to the  provincial government. The  final hearings in all probability will be held on August 12  at which time the provincial  government will present its  case.  TAXATION STUDY  Premier John Hart and Mr.  Neil Perry, economic advisor  to the government, are now  making a very close study of  the budget address delivered  by the Honourable J. L. Ilsley,  to determine the effect of Mr.  Ilsley's proposals on provincial  economy. Mr. Hart is desirous  of securing all available data  on the proposals before he proceeds east to discuss these matters with the federal minister  of finance.  Jobs Needed  For Veterans  This Summer  FEAR THAT a sudden upswing  of summer unemployment  may cost some veterans the  chance to continue their education this fall was expressed  Tuesday by Dr. W. G. Black,  acting head of the University of  British Columbia employment  bureau. v  Although all students who  had applied were previously reported employed, "the situation  has changed considerable during  the past month and now we  have 400 who wouldfc be glad to  take jobs of any kind until the  end of September," Dr. Black  said.  .Besides this, Dr. Black for-  sees an additional number of unemployed students around the  middle of August when some  seasonal employment ceases, and  the summer session concludes.  These students will only be able  to work for one month.  Emphasizing that the stud-,  ents, 90 per cent of them ex-servicemen, "are not fussy" about  afford to leave town because of  having to pay double living  what kind of work they get, Dr.  Black ^pointed to the fact that  married veterans could not  costs as the only restriction on  employment student veterans  will take.  By ADELAIDE  THE ATTITUDE of parents toward each other has a tremendous influence upon the behaviour and attitude of their  children. As one writer has said  "Parents must present a united  front to their children." A father  may have a strong desire to interfere when he sees the mother  "give in" to six-year-old Fred's  coaxing���but instead of relieving himself by ah impatient remark or by "taking .it out on  the boy" by some unnecessary  reproof, he realizes that if any  constructive end is to be gained,  the. best thing to do is to talk  the situation over with mother  later. In their relationships with  their children the well-adjusted  parents will always try to view  their children's behavior objectively, that is as it would be  seen by an outsider. Their relations with the children will show  an intelligent' and sympathetic  understanding which will sbe reflected in their children's con-,  fidence in them. Neither a great  amount of the theory of child  management nor a great deal of  time spent in the study of methods of child training will be of  much avail if the parents themselves are worried, irritable, inconsistent, or "lose their tempers" in the presence. of their  children.

EATON C*  UM1TI0  By MAISIE DEVITT  HASTINGS Street was crowded in spite of the drizzling unseasonable weather. Old Andrew elbowed his way along,  shivering in his thin overcoat, once good, but like himself, shabby  and frayed now. Pain shot through his bones. He had hoped to  be free of this nagging rheumatism when summer came, but it was  still with himj aggravated by the constant dampness. He eyed a  cheap show longingly���it would be warm inside���but the coins  in his pocket were so few that he dared not risk the small extravagance. Three days to go before his pension check was due. He  didn't eat much at any time, restaurant food being'poor stuff to a  man who had known Janet's good cooking. But he hated the  inevitable crackers and milk to which he was reduced the end  of every month, when even his natural thrift left him with only  a few dimes.  There hadn't been much left when Janet died. Her last illness  had swallowed up their small savings. Not much sense to living  alone in the cottage, so he had sold it for a pittance. Existing in  the chill impersonality of a rented room he had missed all his  comforts bitterly. He went back once for a nostalgic glimpse of  the little house where they had been so happy. It had degenerated  into a shack, with sagging walls, and shingles missing from the  roof. The fruit trees were neglected and disease-ridden. A few  of Janet's treasured perennials struggled feebly through the weeds  and knee-high grass.  He never went there again.  He paused at the corner shop for the pint of milk that must be  his supper. Another precious nickel went for a paper package of  aspirin to ease the nagging ache in his bones.  The basement room was dank and cold. Not so bad during  the winter months when the furnace was going, but dingy and  cheerless now. The landlady was a vinegar-faced slattern, and  the linen was none too clean, but he dare not complain. Where  else could he find shelter for $3.00 a week, leaving him $18.00 of  his pension for this business���this dragging futile business���of  living?  He got a glass of water from the basement tap and swallowed  the aspirins. He munched a couple of crackers and put the box  back carefully on the dusty shelf.  Three more days to go.  The ache in his bones lessened somewhat, but a dark depression settled on him. He sat down on his cot, clutching a blanket  about his thin shoulders. Through his small window he could see  the rain still pelting down, and the feet of people hurrying to their  homes.  Why should a man outlive his usefulness, he wondered. Eighty  years was too long to live���alone���forgotten���half-starved. And  three days to go���three days to go���  It was a very small item in the morning .paper. Didn't even  make the front page. Most people passed it over with a shrug.  After all it wasn't news.  Happens every day:  "An aged'man, 81, found with wrists slashed. Diet in hospital."  Old Andrew hadn't waited those three days.  A scientist in Italy, it is reported, has devised a process  for.'making wool out of milk.  A new dictate of fashion says  that "the forehead will be worn  high.". We will continue to wear  ours where the hair ends in  front.  If  '.!J.

Twelve-year-old Earl Hen-  stridge ended up in Pender Harbour hospital after a disastrous  encounter with a "bumble bee."  A sting on his upper lip infected  his face and glands and Earl  was a major casualty by the  time he arrived at the hospital.

How Housewife Aids the Farmer  ' Even the busiest housewife helps this Dominion Department of Agriculture  economist in a food consumption survey. Compiling results from hundreds of  these interviews the Department gives farm marketing groups accurate  information on the kinds and grades of produce which consumers prefer.  Department economists conduct numerous surveys at the request of organized  farmers, the food industry and provincial governments.

This will make a  wonderful improvement to our  main business section and it has  been suggested that some paint  put on the old buildings would  really round out the appearance  of the street. How about it, you  owners have you enough civic  pride to do it?  * *    *  Mr. and Mrs. E. P. Yarwood  are spending a month's holiday  at Canim lake in the Cariboo.

We wish her an  early recovery.  Cleve Dawson is being kept  quite busy with his new truck.  The cartage business has grown  so that there seems,to be plenty  of work for both concerns.  * *    *  Speaking of business opportunities, there seems to be one  in the shoe repair field. At present there is no shoe repair man  in Squamish and all repair work  has to be sent out. This should  be a good opportunity for a veteran who can do this type of  work, to establish himself in a  good business.

The Squamish Bakery is doing just about capacity business. The high quality of their  product   has   won   many   new  friends and retained the ones of  long standing. We wish continued success to Mr. and Mrs.  Frank Mathison, proprietors.  * *    *  The Squamish beauty parlor  has moved to the building south  of Mackenzie's store, formerly  occupied by the Earl Watt family,  who  have  moved  to  New  Westminster.  * *    *   .  The P.G.E. railway continues  to do a record breaking business both' in passengers and  freight.

Mr. Heid is hoping to have  Ronald home again in a month.  Mrs. Charles Sundquist has also  been ill but is feeling better today. Much of the illness is due  to the very changeable weather.
