Mother ��� Provincial, visited Gib-J  sons Landing recently to inspect  .the site for the new hospial. On  account of the rapid growth of  the district the superintendent  of ��� hospitals for B.C. asked for  a complete report of the findings of the Sisters so that work  canjjo ahead if everything is in  order. Surrey shows that a 50-  bed hospital, at least, will, be  required, y The whole district  sfiquidjyget; behind this very important matter as it is time we  had a first-class hospital within  reach of all residents. ���'���.    ,;,./'.

Graduates of the course will  fill the urgent need for qualified  physical education, recreation  and health instructors for'  schools, Y.M.C.A.'s and community centres all over the  province.  Forty-seven men and ten  women have registered for the*  second year of the course which  is being given during the current session. Over half of the  enrolriient are ex-service students. The first class will gra<I~ _  uate in 1949.    -  The  physical  education  staft  now totals seven fully-qualified;,  instructors.   Extra accommoda-;  tion has been provided by an a  extension   of   present   facilities  and by the acquisition of huts  and a large hangar.  This expansion in facilities is  of a temporary nature, however,  and to carry the course through...  to the final1 years, a new and  fully equipped gymnasium must  be built.

Get?  ffi^)6&tinMitey Satan*  ociety Urops  To Operate Hospita  A MEETING of the Pender Harbour Hospital Society in  ; Irvings Landing Community Hall, October 13, decided  that it is impossible for the society to take over and operate  St. Mary's Hospital at least for another year. The one  main reason for this is that the many who so eagerly offered  donations at first have falen down on their promises and  withdrew their committments.  Some months ago a group of ~ ���  >��!

Eastern Mogul  Sees $85 Price  For Newsprint  SIR ERIC Bowater. head of the  Bowater pulp and paper interests of Newfoundland, thinks  the price of newsprint will advance to $85 a ton "to cope with  added production costs;"  Sir Eric noted, in an interview, that the office of price  administration, in Washington,  had ratified the last increase in  price to $74 a ton, and said the  .figure would go higher to meet  increased wages for the men engaged in logging operations.  "They have been outside  lumber camps during the war  period. They will not return to  the woods unless wages and  conditions are made more attractive."        ��  Odd ��3&��&oiri&? gy^al^mpj^r  achieve1 success this ternS,'^andt  that the' .building will be, cpnr*  structed.in 1947 or early in 1948;  j>-;i:;'i^k.iiq��.v^ient.-  public spirited people from  Half Moon Bay to the upper  part of Jervis Inlet banded together vtcv see-ywhat could be  done to improve conditions in  St. Mary's Hospital, Garden  Bay. It was found that it was  over crowded and certain important facilities livere required  to make a smooth running hospital, -y  It was then decided that a  new staff -quarters wc-uld help  matters greatly. By moving the  staff in to quarters of their own,  they would be much more comfortable and would have more  privacy than they have as long  as they lived in the lower part  of the hospital, where they  were even afraid to turn on a  radio at-times���������in case they  might idisturb : k^ very   ill   pas  sion continue to own and operate St.  Mary's Hospital.  2.

Hopkins Landing shows the greatest increase with 120  per cent. Sechelt comes next with an increase of 60 per cent.  MR. H. A.

Y ;.,;���public  n}jeetin��$   were   held  ^A^cfcj-fthrtre meetings"were recruited members for the newly  chartered Pender Harbour -Hospital Society. The Columbia  Coast Mission, who operate the  hospital, agreed to turn the hospital over to the society if it  could raise enough funds to  make the necessary improvements arid additions. A canvass  of the public raised approximately $15,000 in, commitments  which were to be turned over  to the society on request.  When the society estimated  that sufficient ������* commitments  had been promised, and another  $10,000 was expected from the  government, which would be  forthcoming ��� when sufficient  funds had been raised, it will  call in all moneys promised.  It was discovered then that  these promises were not' very  good as only about $6,000 has  been turned in to date. The  plans for taking over the hospital have now been dropped  for a year. Although it is still  the Society's aim to go ahead  with it's plan to build the staff  quarters. Since the last general  meeting others have withdrawn  their commitments and it is  hoped that they will reconsider  things as conditions remain just  the same as when they promised  to help.  In  order  to   allow  the  resi-   dents in the area to have some  say in operating the hospital  the Columbia Coast Mission has  offered an alternative to the  original plan, which is quoted  from a letter to-Pender Harbour Hospital. Society Board  members frditi R&v. A.^ Greene,  superintendent of the Mission's  Hospitals, as follows: ��IH0XOIA  1. The Columbia Coast Mis1H��HgI1 JlviD&IilGHd.  deavQ.urihg to supplement your  fund by direct contributions  from the Missionary Society of  the Church of England in Canada, the final total of the fund  being still in your hands for  the. original purpose only of  erecting the staff residence and  making such alterations as  might be required later to .increase the bed capacity of the  hospital and it's general effectiveness.  On condition that:  5, The staff residence and  other improvements be a direct:  donation to Columbia Coast  Mission as the owners of the  hospital.  And���  6. If the Columbia Coast Mission at a later date wished to  withdraw from operating the  hospital, the first offer of the  hospital and its equipment be  made to your Society or some  responsible body representing  the people of Pender Harbour  area.  The above proposal was accepted by the Society on Sunday, October 13. W. Scoular,  Mrs. A. Dingman of Pender  Harbour and A. E. Ritchey of  Half Moon Bay were chosen to  represent the society on the local Columbia Coast Mission  Hospital Board. The Pender  Harbour Hospital Society hope  it will receive continued support from the residents in the  area, in its effort to improve  hospital  facilities.

The girl, Margaret Chisolm of  Cranberry Lake, wrote the editors of the Sun in an attempt to  learn what it takes to make a  reporter and Mr. Editor turned  her letter over to Scott.  The letter says: "I am a young  student recently entered high  school. I am very interested in  journalism and intend to be a  journalist, I wondered if you  could be of assistance by giving me some data on the education required, the salary and the  fields of different journalism  possible for a girl interested in  that field."  Says Mr. Scott: "This would  be an easy; and even interesting,  letter to answer if the writer  were a ybtihg man. I could  ramble ort for several hundred  words and possibly even convince^ the writer to abandon his  mad dream and just go in for  fumigating or hog-breeding or  some other honorable profes^  sibn.  "The fact that the writer is  female complicates the matter  considerably.

They will not be sold to win  a war or help the peace; they will be simply  a sound security, at better than savings bank  interest, which will enable the government  to finance some of its operations at lower interest, rates. ,  ; A canvass across Canada showed that the  wartime method of personal savings through  war certificates, stamps and bonds, has grown  so popular there is a widespread demand for  a peacetime saving program.  The new savings bonds will answer that  need. They are designed for the small investor,  will bear interest at 2% per cent and possess  a new feature, being redeemable at any time  at full face value with interest, calculated  monthly. They may be purchased for cash,  on a monthly savings or payroll plan, or by  personal arrangement with a bank. With these  features it is anticipated the new securities  will be in such demand that no investor will  be allowed more than $2,000 worth.  It must not be forgotten that these deben-  ures will help Canadian taxpayers in two  ways. They offer them the opportunity to invest their savings , in a guaranteed security  which promises .Eysatisfactqry return and can  be converted into e%h whenever needed.  They also will help them*' as direct or indirect  contributors to; the federal treasury, to lower  -the cost of running the Country. Proceeds of.  the savings bond sales will permit the Dominion  government to refund some of its indebtedness atftloWer; interest rates. Already officials  of the federal finance department are planning tovrefinance one large,AYz per cent, callable bond issue YCrom sale of the new, 2% per  cent bonds.y        ��� Y.  The. purchase of these bonds will help the  individual put his savings to work, and, at the  same time help Canada reduce her interest  burdem Savings bonds will allow us to help  ourselves in the fullest sense of' the term.  llihlk* Reading  THUS SAID the Lord; Behold I set before you  tjhe -Jfcf. of Ife  ,and the #|y- ipf* death.'"'"'  ������yr\-yC .;-   ?Yy:Wr^EtfE.,^2i:_      ,  Thergfbfyi;choose li��e.']:'] --  DEUT., 30:19  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift  of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our  Lord.

TEXADA NARRATIVES  &  Edmonton Bulletin  The rehabilitation committee of Ontario has  asked the federal department of labor to take  steps to see that married women workers are  dismissed and their jobs are given to returned  men and women.  In all parts of Canada this principle is being  carried out to a certain degree and will be  carried out whether legal compulsion is applied  or not. It is manifestly unfair that both a man  and his wife should hold salaried jobs while  capable men, particularly men who have served  their country, cannot find work.  In a general way, the rule will and should  be applied.  But-there is a further angle to the situation  which does not seem to have been considered.  And that is that when a woman marries and  must give up her job to live on the salary of  her husband, who makes the same amount of  money for the same work as a single man, she  is put into the position of being penalized  financially for entering the married state. In  tbrief, since she and her husband must share  a single salary, marriage means that both parties to the contract must accept a fifty per cent  cut in their remuneration.  It is true that family allowances move iri  the direction of balancing this inequitable condition. But family allowances are granted only  where, there are children and even then the  wife herself is not compensated for the "financial  disability she incurs through marriage.  There is no doubt whatsoever that the employment sof married women should not be permitted to prevent the employment of men, particularly returned men. The need for that principle is obvious; But at the same time, why  should a woman who marries be financially  penalized in comparison to the woman who remains unmarried and holds on to a paying job?

So down at the wharf I made my stay  And craned my neck toward the milky-way.  But the clouds were playing at hide and seek  As much as to say, you will be here for a week,  Then I twisted my neck to the northern sky  Caught a glimpse of the stars as the clouds  passed by.  They were silent and still and bright and clear  And my neck grew sore with constant wear.

The two men came upon two  cubs   crying   for   their- mother  "like a couple of kids" at the  foot of a poplar.    At the top of  the tree the mother was nonchalantly feeding on leaves. One  of- the rangers picked up a cub  while" his   companion held his  rifle ready and waited for fireworks.    '.-������'  Down came the mother bear,  snapping off branches in her  haste and anger. She reached  the ground snarling and padded  a few steps in the ranger's direction. He held his ground, the  cub in his arms.

Municipalities  towards problems of teachers is  voiced in a statement by the  B.C. Teachers' Federation.  The federation statement  charges that the union, at its recent Harrison Hot Springs convention, denied the Teachers'  Federation the right to speak.  The charges followed report of  B. C. Gillie* former federation  president and convention, delegate, that he was 'almost insulted as a teacher."  Mr. Gillie reported he was  virtually denied the floor and  teachers' problems were dealt  with in a flippant manner and  not considered on their- merits.  "It would appear/' said the  federation, "that the Union of  B.C.

So here I am  with it.  Some years ago I had a hard  tirne finding one who would  believe it could be done, and  many said I was too old to do  it, but not one could say it was  not the very thing man was put  upon earth to do.  . It did not take long for people to go their way and forget  all about me and this idea of  "A Better Home for a better  child, so that he might go and  build a better home for yet a  better child."  ..It has been no easy job for a  single man to stay upon this  work, when each and every one  would believe him just as themselves, trying to make that  thing the school books call  Hdme, "a place where one lives."  I had already tried Such places,  only to find them more as a  hell than that next place from  my Heaven, or that place where  peace must land if ever coming  to earth as promised.  Few even went as far as to  ask if I had ho iriore easier place  to live. Most of my friends  knew I could return td rriy old  home where I might get all help  I needed. Yet they watched  Sunray. grow' rip until today it  takes the Yank to see that the  idea is a good one.  Just what did the Yanks find  at^.^firaj^0^a\..i^aike ^hem say  fsuch things? .'. Was^j^^e,n-.j^hey:  y^atdhed the seven-year-old  ^irl as she trirned the for^e and  ^a^checi the old axe crime to  the prbper heat then ciall, "It's  good, Dafddy,*' arid Dapldy takes  it from ^he fire arid works that  old axe into a rie\v and ibietter  than ever one. For they Watched the finished tool cut through  the same trunk which had bit  out a big piece of the edge, but  this new edge cut clean.  Or was it after looking over  the 10-year-old boy's boaT,  built from his own plans, for  Dad builds boats from plans of  his own. Or it may have been  after watching these children  as they all did their part in  packing tuna and salmon into  jars for winter. It may haye  been from the ladies of the parties who had -listened to the  girl tell of all the birds, their  nesting places, color of eggs, or  what track that 'was upon the  trail. Or was it that same; feeling which the old man of some  eighty years who had asked,  "How ever did Daddy get these  big rafter up there?" to be told  by one of five years, "Oh that's  quite easy, you see we all have  to help, and they go up quite  "easy. If I could only lift up the _  timber I could build a house just  like this for its only a lot of  little parts all put together."  Yes it could be one of a hundred and one things these children are learning so that one  day they might go out and build  a Better Home for a better  child.

Parr Pearson,  Coast News,  Half Moon Bay. B.C.  Dear Mr. Pearson, ��� The  question of water figures prominently when you consider developing a new place at the  Creek. In the eastern section of  the district, he older settlers  have been well covered by the  supply from the various creeks,  but at that, the water question  reflecs generally somehing of  the spirit found in the old Highland clan feuds. Well digging  is an arduous ask, no one appears anxious to tackle the job  and further no one has modern  equipment to spare hard physical effort.  Resulting from" this background, about eight of us met  in July and decided we would  explore the possibilities of installing a modern water system.  To develop this project rnre suggested the formation of tthe  Roberts Creek Improvement  Association and w^ote to the  water coritroiler at Victoria and  had him send his engineer over  to survey the possibilities. A  Mr. Ker cairie over ano! gauged  the West arid East forks of  Rpfeerts Creek together with  the Stephens Creek. On Sept.  6th he estimated "130,000. gallons per day was flowing, quite  adequate to support a good size  development. The result of this  was the holding of a meetirig on  Sept. 28th at the Kewpie C^riig  Hall^at ;^yiuch^^ abput^ wer^ >!��  attendance.;, The fpreiiping report was presented! together  with the enumeration, of several  other problemis calling for cbrii-  munity action.  After an extended discussion,  hearing both sides of the question, it was decided to go ahead  and form an association as  above, the meeting for organization and election of officers to  be held on Saturday, Oct. 12th.  On my holidays, I visited Mr.  Burns at Gibsons and discussed  the development of a metropolitan water board for the southern end of the peninsula, to take  in Roberts Creek, Gower Point,  Gibsons, Granthams and Hopkins. The reason for this being that the potential water  reserves lie west of Mt. Elphinstone back of Roberts Creek.  To make this scheme possible,  it will call for the creation of  separate water districts in the  presently unorganized areas.  This then, so far as Roberts  Creek is concerned is the first  step.  I was interim chairman at  the last meeting, Miss Margaret  OMAHA,    Neb. ��� William   H.  Schmoller was in Holland  when World War I broke out,  and he booked passage on the  steamship Rotterdam. It didn't  sail and he finally got home on  another ship.  Twenty-five years later Mr.  Schmoller again was in Holland  when a new war began and he  faced another transportation  problem. This time he came  home���on the Rotterdam.  Ml      _,. .    ���   ���   .   ���-���...^.   i<���      i-ii>.      ��..   ���    ...    ���       .i ���-        , P.    I ...     ���-���    ..I���.

Not  so  ��� many of theni knew, until he  paid this district a visit last  week, a 'great deal more about��  him.

Iri Canada's political future . . .  Demonstrative of his sense of  humor were a couple of wise  cracks he came out with at a  recent luncheon in honor of the  minister of fisheries. When the  minister happened to mention  people coming to the government "with no axes to grind,"  Sinclair cracked: "Steel strike  ���we have no axes" ... And  then in the course of his own  remarks, he Y(a Liberal) took a  shot at the. Conservative Vancouver Daily Province thusly:  "Ttiefe is in Vancouver a newspaper which publishes regularly and one. which publishes  occasionally. Fortunately the  one which publishes occasionally holds views:which should  only be heard occasionally."

CAKE TINS  Folks who have set up housekeeping during war years and  since have had to do without  many things. These things are  gradually coming back on the  market and with the steel strike  over we should see more and  more useful and needful household articles. But this Christmas you can bake your Christmas cake in the regular Christmas cake tins; they came. in  nests of three, round or square.  Yes, you can buy them now, but  can you buy the Christmas cakeY  makings.   Ah; there is the rub.  MILK  We* notice  that canned milk  is on limited supply just now;  If you have been in the habit of  falling back on a can of milk  when the fresh has run out, try  a can of powdered milk.   There  , are at least two good brands on  the   market.     These   have   the  full value of fresh whole milk  (milk  and   cream)   in  powder  form.    We   have  tried   it   and  find it very good.    It has the  flavor pf fresh milk and the advantage of being able to mix up  sufficient for your use and putting the1 can back in a dry cool  place   till   the  next  time   you  need it.
