 .ON NOVEMBER 18 at Robert's  Creek and November 20 at  Gibsons Landing, the Everyman Theatre will make its, first  appearance before an audience  in a community hall* presenting  "The Importance of Being  Earnest."  Rehearsals conducted on the  floor of the hall with benches  and imagination for props and  background, will at last have  resolved themselves in an ascent  to the stage proper,- with; the  imagined surroundings, materialised in a medley of blacj^ and  white decoratiork, throwing into relief the 'spectrun^-hued  gowns of Edwardian days'.  The simple, white-painted  furniture, the dove-grey curtains and theswhite^ Accessories  phhctiiated with black is the  ei&exSfiat'" color scheme of the  stylized letting, designed by  Sydney Risk.  * Theatrical symbolism rather  than realism is the medium used  in the portrayal of this comedy  of manners. This is exemplified  in the particul^ly strikirig instanceoi the green carnations  worn by John Worthihg and Algernon Moncrieff, a reference to  the Wildian artificial refine-  nieht. Symbolishi includes the  theory that actors will convey  to the audience a greater fcon-  cepion of atmosphere and more  completely furnished surroundings than is merely suggested  by the fewest possible groups.  Cbming to the footlights are  yoiing actors from all parts of  Canada, united in their desire  to bring theatre to the Canadian  people. It is their sincere de-  Sire that in presenting heir plays  at pOi>tdar prices through the  lour ^Westfern provinces, they  will -hegiving Canadians the  ;y$Ppof!^^  Serving a Progressive and Growing  Area on B.

Jacobsen  IT WAS A severe shock to the  people of Squamish to learn  that John Bruntjen had lost his  life in an accident while at work  in his lumber mill on Nov. 7.  John Bruntjen and his wife  and two children came here to  live two years ago. For several  years they had lived in the  P.G.E. country around Green  Lake where Mr. Bruntjen had  established himself in the lumber business as partner of Mr.  Dennis DeBeck.  The Bruntjens bought a house  here and the transformation of  that house from a drab looking  place to the most well kept and  pleasing home, and all of it done  and servicing in British Colum- by John and Mary Bruntjen  bia, working on what became  known, as t^e Ae^ Burnef. Later  he moved toy Vancouver and  worked with Boyle Brother Diamond Drilling Company, work-  i|ig up .to;, tgol room foremafr.  "^hile :wi^thfs firm he als<?: did  gi^traet, installation, ^bn_^ruc-  iipn and repairing in many mills  in.andpsit; of the city.; X>uring  the. war he did work .for Boeing  A^c^aft at their Goal Harbor  themselves, soon won them the  admiration and respect of the  people of Squamish who realized  that the Bruntjens were a definite asset to our communiy. .  As we came in closer contact  with John Bruntjen we learned  to know him as a,quiet, unassuming and humble man. He  worked :-��xeepjtipnally hard,. in  his business; but lie could still  fisd time to give ,his y neighbor  a hand or to put his shoulder to  ���Y;Mrv Hill-brings to Gibsons' all any worthwhile community ef-  th6 experience he gained while fort. Somehow or other you  engaged, at these various jobs, could always count on John  plus a complete line of tools and Bruntjen. Rarely will you find  machinery.  won the affection and respect of  so many people.  John Bruntjen was a true  gentleman. During the troubled  years of war when our minds  and hearts were subjected to  propaganda unfavorable to the  people of certain countries, we.  who knew John Bruntjen,  realized that he was a living  symbol of that which was good  and just and true and honorable  in the German people. John  Bruntjen was a credit to the  people from whom he came,  and he proved himself the very  best citizen of his adopted country.  John Bruntjen became a  director of the Squamish Credit  Union, and his fellow officers of  that organization deeply regret  the loss of so able to colleague.  The people of Squamish and  the people along the P.G.E. line  will long remember John Bruntjen. Our deepest sympathies  go out to his widow and two  small daughters.

The dance in question proved  a huge success, what with door  prizes, spot dances and Joe Dunbar as a very capable master of  ceremonies,   everybody   seemed  to be enjoying themselves immensely.

Arm. Observer relates a good  yarn . .Y>-.��� practically a ��� dream  come true for any angler who  has lost tackle among this district's tangled lakebeds.  Says the Odd Angle:  "When fishing off the mouth  of the Adams river a few days  ago, Albert Bedford caught a  large silver, and in his method  of catching it lies a tale for the  book. The fish was not caught  on his hook, but a long piece of  line it was trailing from its  mouth became entangled in his  line and the silver literally  hanged himself.  "Mr. Bedford was accompanied by Bill Akeroyd who  vouches for the accuracy of the  story. He was permitting his  line to drift with the current  when suddenly he discovered  that he had snared something.  It Was not a strike, but certainly  there was something on his line.  "He reeled in until the first  swivel of his leader reached the  tip of his rod. He could not  believe hi^ eyes. There was still  a lot of line in the water and  there surely was a fish on the  end of it.  "Finally, with Mr. Akeroyd's  aid, Mr. Bedford managed to  get his catch ashore. It was a  silver about two feet long, with  a black japanned hook embedded in its mouth and trailing  some gear and about 20 feet of  line.  "Apparently the fish had been  dragging the line for some time  and was virtually starving. The  black enamel had been worn  from the hook in its apparent  desperate attempt to get free  of the gear. As evidence that  it was on the verge of starvation, expert fishermen. claimed  that a fish of that proportions  should weigh in the neighborhood of seven pounds, but when  Mr. Bedford put it on the scales  its weight was found to be just  over three pounds.  " 'When we tried to eat it, the  silver was as tough as shoe  leather,' Mr. Bedford said."  SANITARY GARBAGE  WARNING that scavengers are  a menace to public health has  been issued by the department  of national health and welfare,  Ottawa. In a call on all houses  holders to deposit their garbage  only in substantial containers  which can be kept covered, the  bealth authorities point out, that  strays, including such notorious  carriers of disease as rats, more  easily attack loose garbage, or  material discarded only in P&oer.  parcels or cardboard cartons.  We Are Not Amused ������ Few  things diminish our respect for  a critic so much as reading a  book he was unable to put  down.  By Government  A NATIONAL survey has been  undertaken by the Dominion  department of labor, to assemble authentic information on  future employment opportunities for university-trained personnel in Canada, it was announced by Hon. Humphry  Mitchell, minister of labor.  This project was made the  responsibility of the department  of labor by a recent cabinet decision on the need for information in counselling the many  veteran students now attending  or about to attend university.  In addition to meeting counselling needs, the results of the  survey will be used in dealing with the question of future  employment possibilities for  veterans and younger civilian  students.  To assist in making this study,  an interdepartmental advisory  committee has been set up,  headed by Arthur MacNamara,  deputy minister of labor. On  the committee are representatives from the department of  labor, veterans' affairs, reconstruction, national defence, national health and welfare, the  civil service commission and the  national research council.  In view of the particular problem involved in studying veteran employment opportunities,  it is proposed to concentrate  first on needs for personnel who  will complete their university  training in the years 1947 to  1951, inclusive.  The project will involve the  study of information gathered  from employers of university-  trained personnel, including the  federal and provincial governments,  and from various  pro  fessional associations connected  with self-employed groups. The  facts assembled will include  the present needs for professional and.- technical. personnel,  and the expected requirements  for replacement of retiring personnel and for expansion purposes.  The labor minister, in making  this announcement, emphasized  that all information furnished  by employers will be regarded  as strictly confidential.

Friday, November 15. 1046  Reaction to the Citizens' Forum broadcast of Oct. 29 is worthy of more than  passing note. "Are Strikes Necessary"  was the topic for the broadcast, and it  drew hot discussions among forums across  the province.  Reports just tabulated by the B. C.  secretary indicate general feeling is almost  unanimous that strikes should not be prohibited by law, under present conditions.  Forum opinion was equally divide^ on  the issue ''Would the winning of union  security make for industrial peace?" Half  are convinced the answer is "yes", the  other half feel, "no, there are other factors involved".  Promotion of labor-management councils to effect healthier industrial relations  is generally suggested. Some forums  recommend compulsory arbitration; the  extension of P.C. 1003; others feel improved relations would result from recognition of unions by management on one  side, and on the other by a broader view  ori the part of labor toward its responsibilities to the whole econoniy.  The late Qctpber forum shows an almost equal split in public opinion on a '  topic that is in the forefront today, tfiitil  a definite policy,^acceptable to the vast  majority of Canadians,1 is arrived at there  would seem little hope for any lasting industrial peace. And until such peace is  effected we will only be stumbling along  the road of progress.  Press is Applauded  A SPEAKER at the Board pf Trade meeting  recently had some things to say which fell  pleasantly upon the ears of reporters. It was  during a discussion on publicity, which touched  at times upon censorship, prepared statements,  and incompetent reporting.  "I don't like 'prepared' statements" this*  speaker said. He pointed out that he placed  little value upon news stories which obviously  were the work of an organization's mouthpiece  or "prepared" by its secretary. "I want a reporter's version of the facts . . . not a hand-out.  Sometimes they may be a bit biased, but it is  ���easy to judge the facts for oneself."  Continuing, the discussion led off into the  value of publicity for community organizations.  Another speaker opined that people "might  think the Board of Trade is the only organization in town, judging from the publicity it gets.  My own organization does just as much community service, but you never hear about it."  (This speaker was not barbing this newspaper. He blamed the public relations policy  of his own organization which barred the press  from its meetings.)  And another Board member pointed out his  belief that the ability and success of the Board  was in large measure due to its public relations  policy with the local press over the past ten  years ... a policy of frank discussion and  freedom, with the right always observed to  speak "off the record" when a reporter was  covering the meetings.  It all added up to a heart-warming bit of  applause for the efforts of local newspapers,  which have consistently tried to build community organizations by honest, factual reporting of  their activities. And it gave some measure of  encouragement to the local paper to know that  in most quarters its effort was appreciated,  although not always supported.

A FREE PRESS IS THE PRIVILEGE  OF A FREE COUNTRY  B.C.'s PRESS PARLIAMENT  (Vancouver Province)  THERE WAS a time when the experts on trends  professed to see the end of the small weekly  newspaper in Canada. They forecast the day  when great metropolitan dailies, delivering  their wares by fast boat and airplane, would  cover the dominion like a tent/ and the small  town newsppers would bow themselves out.  The years have proven how wrong those predictions were. Instead of losing ground, the  weekly newspapers are expanding with the  communities they serve, and growing in stature  and influence.  Just how much the weeklies have progressed  was demonstrated at the recent meeting pf the  B.C. Division of Canadian Weekly Newspapers'  Association at Harrison Hot Springs. Editors  from all parts df B.C. exchanged ideas?and:experiences with a vijgor and insight which showed how closely they understand and translate  community problems and opinions.  Actually a meeting of the weekly newspaper  association has come very close to being a sort  of press parliament for British Columbia, a parliament whose debates and decisions the elected  i^gislatbrs would at times dp well to. heed.  Country editors have a habit of reporting On the  crops," the condition of community pocketbooks  and, most important, the complexion of community ideas, with ah accuracy no other agency  can achieve. ,  And iji this unparalleled reporting they illustrate why the weekly press always will be  supreme in its sphere. They show how the  cprnniunity newspaper is both recorder and  generator of community spirit and progress?  meeting place and market place for farmer,  merchant, business man and all those they serve  throughout the countryside.  HELP US PUBLISH A GOOD NEWSPAPER  (Comox Free Press)  EVERY   WEEK   there  are  many interesting  items of news throughout the district which  never reach the local newspapers���in fact, it  occasionally happens that we read pf some local  event for the first time in the daily papers.  .  Blame for this, if it can be labelled blame,  rests riot with the newspaper but with the  general public, for it is impossible for any  paper, large or small, to coyer an entire district without some help from its subscribers  who, while they are the peopie for whom the  news is written, are also the pnes *who make  news.  items missed out are not. usually of major  importance, but they form part of the general  picture. Quite often they are of the unusual  variety which make the most interesting reading.  So, in the interest of all concerned, including yourself, do not hesitate to send any news  items you may know in to your local paper.  By so doing you will not only be assisting us,  but helping, as well, to construct a more attractive presentation of our community life for both  local and outside readers.

'Arry'Ofebs.  mm  A  SAWMILL  at  sea  was  the  picture presented on the blue  waters of the Straits of Georgia  one July day in 1899.  Just as the' barge and its  bulky passenger were being  readied to leave Cumberland  for the mill's new home at Van  Anda, a young man hurried; to  the foreman, asking if he might  jbin the mill's crew. The foreman agreed to hire him. Thus  George McLeod, a young Nova  Scotian of a large family,''felt  anew youth's thrill in the ��� face  of a hew adventure, whenr the  sawmill's barge, carrying him  too; was borne over the waters  to Texada Island.        *'���.?.  .. . t, .  George McLeod worked for  awhile in ttie sawmill as it  straddled the cireek s^illmg into  Van ?^da;Bay. Soon; however,  ther rnincis attracted his attention. Ever since; mining r Jh|is  been the theme of hi^ life,  though in years when mining  activity ebbed low, he diverted  his energies into a variety of  channels.  In the early 1900V some of  Van Anda's mines closed down  for shorter or longer periods.  Several of the more ardent  miners had been studying  Poole's book on Queen Charlotte  Islands, Written some twenty  years earlier. Descriptions' of  mining prospects and workings  brought the. Van Anda men to  the; conclusion that the: Que^n  Charlotte formations were similar to those of Texada. With  work slacking off,ythe men planned an immediate personal investigation of the properties  described by Poole.  With a sixteen-foot, clinker-  built rowboat, a sail and what  provisions (tinned and dried)  could be stowed, Jim Raper,  Billy Law, William Stromberg  and George McLeod set out on  a July day for the north. Their  hours of rowing when the wind  failed them, their 'lift" across  Queen Charlotte Sound in the  hold of a small freighter where  the chief item of freight was a  terrified bull, their muscle-  straining row across Hecate  Strait, experiences with the  Haidas, shipwreck, these were  noted simply as part of the  prospector's lot. Of such ordinary moment were the several  trips to the Queen Charlottes,  that native souvenirs of argil-  lite, bone, <metal, etc., were as  casually distributed to friends  as the pieces had beeriYacguired.  About 1905 George McLeod  bought out Jack McRae?s drug  store ��where patent medicines  gave the title to the store that  sold stationery, tobacco, candy,  gifts, etc. Prescriptions were  sent to Vancouver. As town  photographer,^ Mr. McLeod recorded many early activities of  the small settlement such as  mainland picnics, the official  opening of the hospital, the new  ' church, and the mining operations. Y  ���������������  A few years ago, an American-yacht whistled one morning  just outside of Van Anda Bay,  a small boat took McLeod to it  and northward they steamed. A  group.of wealthy business men  desired responsible advice concerning -some minrngw prpspects  that took them throu^" the  Aleutian^ into Bering* Sea's  tumultuous waters. Never had  the "Straits of Georgia begun to  equal the dismal atmbsphefe or  the mountainous = waves" that  tossed the luxury craft like a  splinter. Even the Japanese  floating canneri.es, large enough  to accommodate their fishing  boats at night, "were often swallowed from the view of those pn  the passing yacht.  George McLeod is retired now  at Van Anda. He still does a  little bartering, some fishing  and hunting, gardening, and follows as keenly as ever his favorite hockey or ball teams, or  wrestlers. But above- all, his  life is still part of Texada's mining.  ���Violet Seaman.  Sechelt Badminton  Club Starts Season  OFFICERS have been elected  for the 1946-47 badminton season. They are Mr. R. C.

Producer Says  Console Radio  Year Away  IT MAY BE a year or more before Mr. and Mrs. Powell  River can get that big postwar  radio they've been dreaming  about.  A. H. .Ginnan, president bf  Canadian Marconi, said last  month in Vancouver that a few  mantel radios aire being produced, but console models will not  be available until wood cabinets  can be made.  "Cabinets are produced on a  seasonal plan by furniture  makers," he explained. "iSut  there is now. such a shortage of  furniture the manufacturers are  not making cabinets. Their  price for a console is almost as  high as our ceiling price with  radio installed."  Mr. Ginnan blamed strikes for  slow reconversion iri the Canadian radio industry. Supply 'of  radio tubes was most acutely  affected, he said.  Right to frequency modulation circuits���the modern miracle of "F-M"���are owned by  Canadian Marconi, but are not  being monopolized, he added.  Sets are already in use in Canada, particularly for police  radio.  Installation of the first microwave relay set in Canada to  handle overseas messages for his  company will take place shortly,  the radio executive said. The  relay will eliminate delays and  maintenance troubles between  receivers and transmitters at  Montreal   and   impulse-stations  more than 60 miles away.  Development of television in  Canada will be slow, Mr. Ginnan believes. -He expects most  television broadcasts will be  "piped" in to Canadian stations  from the United States, although  there may be a few programs  originating in Canada.

PARTY AND HOLIDAY  November 6 witnessed the departure of most of our teachers  for North Vancouver, where  they were scheduled to attend  the Teachers' Convention. We  were sorry to .* see them leave,  but glad to have two extra days  holiday. This gave us a long  and most"welcome week-end.  On the night of November 6  a party was held in the School  Hall for the students by the  members of House A.

Friday, November 15. 1946  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmwn Bay, B. C.  Page Seven*  . SOUTH   KORTRIGHT, N.Y. ���  Women of the Axis countries  are awakening slowly from the  lethargy   induced    by    Fascist  ; propaganda and totalitarian  control, according to reports  brought to the International  Assembly of Women by delegates from Germany, Japan and  Italy. Re-education and the  establishment, whenever possible, for friendly contacts with  women of other nations is the  only answer to their present  need, it was agreed by these  representatives.  In a press conference at which  Dr. Gabriele Strecker of Germany, Signorina Anna Lelli of  Italy and Hari Matsui of Japan  , described the situation m their  countries, it was evident that  the extent of wartime control  over the thinking of the people  is reflected in the pace of the  present recovery.  In Italy, where there was a  T R GODFREY  AND COMPANY LTD.

The National League of Italian  Women, which she formed in  June, 1945, and in which she  heads the international relations division, has a long range  plan for the re-education of  women in civic principles and  community life with the aim to  re-establish principles of fairness, truth arid love for one's  neighbor.  Welfare work is being carried  on as a means rather than an  end, because, she explained,  'while persons are hungry and  ill-clothed it is impossible to appeal to their intellect and  hearts.  Before the war, Signorina  Lelli wrote a plan of international education which was  one of the reasons for her imprisonment in May, 1941. Later  she was released, but was arrested again and interned in  Tuscany for anti-Fascism. She  escaped, crossed the lines to  Rome ahd there worked with  the Partisans and became adviser lecturer and special guide  for the education branch of  British army.  FALSITY IN HISTORY  Terming history badly taught  "a nest of hatred," she described  her plan for beginning the  teaching of both history and  geography in the elementary  schools so that children will  grow up with a knowledge of  the. whole world as it is. Later,  If they desire they can specialize'  in the study of their own or another country. Those who had  excelled in their work on a  country of their choice would  be awarded as a prize, a three-  month visit in a camp there in  i which they would meet those  from other countries who had  won similar prizes.  Dr. Strecker whose attendance at the conference* was facilitated by the American military government, and who is the  first German woman to come to  the United States as a visitor  since the war, cited the false  teaching of history and geography in Germany as part of  the   background   of   the   war.

He had arranged for Mrs. Margaret Punter, the soloist at First United  Church and her accompanist,  Miss Helen Shaw, who is secretary to Dr. R. Roddan, to be  with us. Mrs. Punter sang "In  Flanders Fields," and "If Christ  Came Back." I am no music  critic but I'd say her voice was  Superb.

She lived here, at  the Beach as a child, her father,  Mr. Morris, worked in the mill  and was instrumental in obtaining the first piano for the  church.  Rev.
