Mr. Anscomb' was not prepar-  Lat this date to say definitely  K f st how he proposed the money  ould   be   allocated   or   spent  her   than   tb   make   it   quite  ear  that  all of it  would  be  sed   for  road   purposes.    Mr.  ^inscomb pointed out that when  (Minister  of  Public  Works,   he  %ad consistently asked that an  arrangement   of  that   kind   be  made if at all possible���and this  was followed by a bill in the  ^legislature  at  the  last- session  <.taking*p_ower to so transfer the  ax from the dominion to* the  rovince.

Further applications, are still being accepted by the .Extension Department  and all young people who want  to study rural problems are encouraged to take advantage of  this unique opportunity.  The course is under the auspices of the Dominion Department of Labour and the Provincial Departments of Education and Agriculture. In accordance with  arrangements  made  asserigers  as Fumes on  vercome  ,_ . .by Dr. G. M. Weir,"Minister of  Mr. Anscomb stated that the  tEducation, it will tome' under  -���eomrements of the road sys-  terii were so great and so necessary to the economic develop  ment of the province that it was  vital that this should be done,  y and he proposed to remove all  f doubt by a statute that the  % money would be used for that  ypurpose.   .  If we ever expect to secure  and retain"'an adequate volunie  ? of tourist traffic which can be  one,of the most profitable businesses in the province we can  Sonly do so by having roads of  [a, class that visitors will travel  Jon a first and succeeding times,  fin addition "to the (question of  the direction of the U.B.C. Department of Extension.  No fees are charged for the  course; which is the first of its  kind to be held since the end  of the war. Students are expected to contribute towards  their room and board and part  of their * travelling expenses,  * though no orie will be refused  because of lack.of funds. -  The course is essentially practical, covering economics, social  and agricultural problems of  rural life.

Reports by the  Kse> Miss Forry, and by the  /eral   committees,   showed   a  this connection.  It was realized that while the  district and the schools therein,  frorh Sechelt to Hopkins Landing were now benefitting1 from  this service, the large area to  the * we_5t; several schools,' and  Port Mellon aridTBoweh Island  districts, were still" without service.

It is jhoped by this means to  be "able to cover all the schools  in the Sechelt school district,  and'to give nursing service to  the residents who are now without, such-service.

Friday, January 10, 1947  AND MARY brought forth her first born Son,  and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes, and  laid Him in a manger; because there was no  'room for them in the inn. And there were in  the same country shepherds abiding in the  field, keeping watch over their flock by night.  And, lo, the angel of the Lord -came upon  them, and the glory of the Lord shone round;  . about them: and they were sore afraid.

PROBABLY the most popular cry today is  that taxes must be cut, and when we remember how the percentage of tax on all our income compares with the percentage before the  war it would seem quite reasonable that, with  the war out of the way, taxes can be cut very  heavily in the near future.  However, this depends on expenditures today, not on any idea that we can get back to  the level of taxation of 1939.  Take Family Allowances. They take up $250  million a year tax money. That is equal to the  interest on eight billion dollars, or about one-  half the cost of the war.  There can be no doubt that Family Allowances are very popular, but they cost money.  Or take subsidies to keep the cost of living  down. The exact rate at which these are being  distributed cannot be ascertained, because there  are too many sorts of subsidies, like free freight  on grain from the Prairies to Eastern Canada  and B. C, a subsidy of so much a bushel of  oats, and a lot of other indirect subsidies which  seem to get into the cost of living somewhere.  They certainly get into the taxes.  Of course, the most conspicuous example of  waste which could be avoided is in the Civil  Service in Ottawa, where every visitor knows  that there are literally tens of thousands of  Government workers who could be dismissed  tomorrow without in any way interfering with  the work of the Government.  Y The trouble is that the Canadian people  seem to approve of all kinds of Government  spending, and only disapprove of taxes to meet  that spending. -  Certainly, public opinion is becoming so  much aroused over taxation that it seems likely  that the Government could today get on without a lot of expenditures which in themselves  are quite popular, but which the public accepts  only because it fails to see the connection between Government spending and the taxes  which the individual pays.  After every war in history, in every country,  there has sprung up a wave of Government  economy, and this is going to be no exception.  The worst of it is that in every case, Governments seeking economy have been apt to take  drastic measures, and' often cut out expenditures which should not have been reduced.  Let us hope that this is not going to be that  sort of a case, and that the Government, by  real stringent efforts, will save itself from the  necessity of having to act too drastically in the  future.  iffht  The Words  ���   ���   ���  V:  -HEAVEN and earth shall pass away but My  Word shall not pass away.���Matt. 24: 35.  ���  ���    .   *        *       *  I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Dear Sir:  I was fortunate in receiving  one of the first copies of The  Coast News. .Since then, whenever I could pick up a copy,  I have been an interested reader. Your paper is outstanding  in its presentation of a great  diversity,of viewpoints.  In a recent copy there appeared a quotation from W. G.  Carleton, pointing out that our  social and political thought had  lagged far behind our scientific  and technological living.  Here is another quotation  which may be of interest to  some of your readers. Encyclopedia Americana says: Technocracy is. the, only, program of  social arid ecoriomic reconstruction which is in complete intellectual and technical accord  with the age in which we live.

But the earthquake-borri wave which brought  death to hundreds of. Japanese and left scores  of thousands homeless is not an event of indifference to people in Canada, or in the other  Allied countries. If it were, we should fall  short of deserving the victory which saved us  from the fate the aggressors had planned for us.  Twenty years ago an even worse disaster  visited Japan. Voluntary subscriptions t were  immediately started in nearly every Allied  country, or public money voted by parliaments,  to send relief to the stricken.  This time such actiori is not needed. The  United States Army is on the scene and has  taken the situation in hand. There is lack  neither of helpers nor money to do what organized, scientific aid can do to take care of the  sufferers. *  But it would be a proper course on the part  of Canada, and of the other Allies, to ask the  privilege of sharing the cost of this relief work.  The United States should hot have to foot the  whole bill. Nor should Japanese be left to suppose that only in that country has their misfortune aroused the spirit of humanity.���Edmonton Bulletin.

The Labour-Department had  been asked- by employers who  had engaged the services of  some of the prisoners, to allow  some of them to remain on in  Canada .after the main body  went home.

Prizes were given to the couple  Standing in the right spot during one number, but the losers  were soon consoled by searching for two $1 bills hidden in  the room.  Since the school also serves  as the community church, an  added attraction was provided  by intermittent chimes, as the  bell rope was conveniently located within the reach of passers-by.  ��� Blubber Bay-ites were definitely in the minority, with exactly six representatives in attendance. Refreshments, were  served throughout the evening,  and weary revellers wended  their way over the five-mile  road to Vananda sometime after  4 a.m. Everyone questioned  swore it was the best Christmas  dance they'd ever attended.

To start the week off we were  very fortunate to have Syd Risk,  director of the Everyman Theatre, come to the school to give  us some of his valuable time.  Few of the students from grades  ten and eleven have been working on a play that they hope to  put on later, so his visit to the  school was very much appreciated. Mr. Risk helped them  a great deal on their speech,  actions, make-up, etc. Best of  luck to you with the play, kids I  On Tuesday 17, we were honored again to have Mrs. Elsie  Park Gowan speak to us on a  career of writing.

As mentioned  before Ivy's mother and dad  were with us from Winnipeg.  Also her brother Alan and his  ' British bride Hilda. It was the  first year in nine that we were  all together and needless to say  Santa Claus was very good to  us. We spent New Years in Vari-  couver, the first there for me  in nine years. On New Years  day in the traditional manner  the officer's messes and sergeant's messes have "at homes".  I attended the artillery officers  mess at Bessborough Armories,  meeting a lot of old friends that  were in the service with me.  The sergeant's mess there pxit  on a grand buffet lunch and it  reminded me of the days before  Ythe war.  *       4c       *  'Vy'hat man who thinks fee is a  young sheik arranged for a certain young lady to be'picked-up  and taken/to her hotel?

Every/thing goes well with  them and TS/Larg has a .washing  machine how.  As stated. I was not here for  New Years but I understand  that everything went well altho'  there was not the crowd as in  past years. Quite a few of tlie  old gang were up. Colin and  Doris Stewart, Bill and Helen  Patenaude, Margaret Patenaude and her boy friend Tom,  Christmas were/ among ~thec  many that were at the dance.  There are a few changes with  the staff and it all seems to the  better. This is it for this week,  "so cheerio. "  Wm.
