These  firie old people are well and  favorably known in many  partsYOf British Columbia. They  were both born in this province  and were married over 60 years  ago.

HE STOOD there quite a long  j.      while, his eyes glued .to that  same spot. I watched him closely  ' for-I knew he knew all about  the��thirig he was ^looking at. At  L last, it came.  f "That's real, real as real could  [be. Now let's know how you  I made it that way."  j That which had held his gaze  so long was a painting I had  L done in oils of bur Cape with a  [' southeasterly storm breaking  [against it.  | y So I had said, "I am so pleas-  | ed that you, yes you and above  'all, can say that about my work,  ���for now I can believe in myself  y a little more."  1 "Doh'tJ beat about, cpme to  / the point. How did it come to,  life? For it is alive, I tell you."  f "Well, if it must, then I would  sooner you be the first to hear  j it; It went into the city under  rite proper name-���"A Storm"���  i, hut of course ho one saw more  } thaii^thfe! one storm, and where  ' y&0$0ffi^  (������pt;zthat life  you   see   in  thats  Yyyater,  they did- not feel that  | which Iknow you have felt."  |      "That's what I want\ to know  I about.    What is It I feel, not  r what my eyes see."  1      "Very simple;" I replied. <? "I  painted that at the time when I  was alone here looking after my  Y three small children;    You re--  : member when I tried to get help  feut could not; when I tried to  sell  my   boat,  but  could  not;  ! when I tried almost everything,  but could dp nothing?  "Then when I found myself at  that/ point where I guess one  cracks, I took that stool. God  gave me to sit upon whenever/1  becahie, tired but. ��� I took my  brush -up rlahd looked out. of my  ywindow at that storm a^^ywdiile  I listened toYoyanda as shetlid  her school lessons, I mixed that  outside storm with they one  within my heart. And there is  the answer before you."  "AhS theYvery answer I could  hav�� expected," hesaid gravely,  "andCit's yVery sure that I'm not  going back to start painting a  storm myself, for you have done  it as it should.be done, I'm glad  I called in to find it;. I can't  buy it, but could I have it for a  little while beside me in that  place I call an office?"   y. ��� .y     ,  Memorial Service  SQUAMISH.��� Sunday evening,  Nov. 17, a memorial service  was held in the United Church  for the late John Bruntjen.

It works this^ way  -j���voices influence others: "if Ya  person has a pleasing voice,'that  improves the personality and  acceptability; to be socially acceptable brings, -happiness, and  happiness, in turn* brings health.

TWO CHILDREN of" Mr. and  Mrs. Howard Henry lost their  lives when fire, believed to have  been started by an oil burner  explosion, destroyed their Port  Mellon home last Friday afternoon.  The tiny victims, who were  alone in the two-room shack at  the time, were Carl Howard,  aged two years three months,  and Sandra Jean, five and a half  years. Frantic efforts by the  father, a shipper for the Sorg  Pulp company, to reach the children in time proved fruitless.  Hearing the first alarm, Mr.  Henry, who was working in the  company machine shop at the  time, rushed to the blazing  scene. He was forced to go to  a neighbor's for an axe with  which he hacked a hole in the  wall near his infant son's bed.  Throwing water into the scorching room, he climbed inside to  find the two children dead on  the floor.  Mrs. Henry was about 400  yards away when the fire started, on her way to meet the  Union Steamships' boat. Two  other children, Henrietta, eight,  and Sidney, six, were at school  when the tragedy took place.  Bodies of the victims were  taken   to   Vancouver   Saturday  RUTH CARSON WEDS  VANCOUVER BOY  SQUAMISH. ��� United Church  was the scene of a pretty  wedding on Saturday, Nov. 16  at 2 p.m., when Ruth 3_llen,  eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  George ,Carson, Squamish, became the bride of Mr. Douglas  Fenton, son of Mr. and Mrs. W.

New Generating  Unit Installed  SECHELT.���The installation of  150 kw. generating unit transferred from Duncan to the  Secheit power house was completed recently by B.C. power  commission. The engine is a  Polar Atlas Diesel developing  200 horsepower. It originally  came from Stockholm, Sweden,  where it had the fancy name of  Aktiebolaget Atlas. Another  450 kw. Diesel set, acquired  with the property, has been  overhauled and reset on its  foundations. The 100 kw.  hydro-electric unit in this plant  has, also been given extensive,  repairs. There is now 600 kw.  capacity in the Sechelt plant  which will ensure adequate  power supply for the immediate  future.  The addition of the new unit  does not mean that when the demands for more power output  is required that all units will  operate at the same time. It is  understood that one or two of  the units will always be held in  reserve in case of a breakdown.  The largest unit, with the 360  h.p. Fairbanks-Morse Diesel  engine, is operating at present  and it practically idles under the  present load. It can easily supply an additional 50 to 60 per  cent more power.  A bank of transformers are-  being installed behind the  power plant. These, will step  ^S^pxrw^  when it reaches as far as Gibsons Landing it will drop down  to about. 2,300 volts. Before  reaching the consumer the cur-  tent will pass through other  transformers, giving a steady  flow of 110 volts.  The B.C. power commission  have a large programme for the  Sechelt peninsula, but at the  present time it can not be learned to what extent the commission intends to increase the service. As many as 25 extra men  were hired during the summer  months to clear the right-of-  way. Some extras are still employed burning slashing and  working on the final installations around the plant.  The present full-time staff  is made up of the superintendent, J. Seely, linemen, A. G.  Seely, Fred Mills, Wally Edwards; power house operators,,  Don Finlayson and Bert Sim.

Officials stress the fact that  air types of fuel wood are still  under price ceiling regulations  and that all licensed fuel wood  dealers are in possession of up-  to-date schedules listing ceiling  prices on all varieties of wood,  and must keep these schedules  posted prominently in their  places of business.  "They point out, however, that  because many consumers are  not familiar with price regulations, they have been unfortunate victims of unscrupu!6us^_ell-  ers who have taken advantage  of their position.  Although the board is constantly investigating cases of  overcharging and short measure,  it is impossible to check every  transaction^ officials explain. It  is therefore necessary for* consumers to familiarize themselves  with local ceiling prices, and to  advise the nearest offices of the  price board of any attempt to  sell fuel wood above ceiling  prices.  Woodworkers Wage  Demands Rejected   -  A SECOND appeal by the C.I.O.  International Woodworkers of  America for a special wage  increase for about 500 workers  in five operations by three companies in the Queen Charlotte  Islands, has been rejected by the  national war labor board in  Ottawa.  The board dismissed the application for a wage increase of  10 cents an hour. *  The application covered all  employees of the J. R. Morgan  Logging Company Ltd., Pacific  Mills Ltd., and the Kelley Logging Company Ltd. It was  brought by Local 171 of the  union and was supported to the  extent of five cents an hour by  the companies.  All circumstances of the latest  application, said the Ottawa  board, were identical with those  of a previous appeal involving  Pacific Mills employees, which  was disposed of in November,  1945../, ,r;  In dismissing that appeal the  board said the parti__y to the  application were in effect asking the board to establish a differential in favor of workers in  the Queen Charlotte Islands.

RUBBER plants in eastern  Canada are preparing to resume output but no new tires  will be on sale here for a month  or more.  Branch managers of major  tire, firms predicted that it will  take from two to four months  of capacity tire production to  meet existing backorders for  casings. Half a year will elapse,  they said, before dealers* stocks  are normal again.  In Vancouver, dealers have  been completely sold out of both  passenger and commercial tires  for six weeks.  Tubes will be available before  tires, one company representative said.  Delay in getting tires back on  the general market will be due  to the necessity of overhauling  equipment that has been idle at  the factories since June 24, of  obtaining new raw materials  (existing stocks may have deteriorated too badly for use),  and of supplying casings for new  cars, trucks and triors. Latterly, cars have been snipped  from factories without tires.  First tires manufactured will  go to the army of occupation and  U.N.R.R.A. Next will go towards meeting the export demand. New car manufacturers  come next with individual car  owners at the bottom of the list.  In the past month, some tires  for trucks have been purchased  in the United States by dealers  and j^leet operators. The American price, however, has been too  high to allow for resale in Canada at domestic ceilings, and so  relatively few have been imported.

AT A RECENT meeting John L. Lewis, beloved  president  of the  United  Mine  Workers  of  America, issued a few resounding sentiments  about the aims of the labor movement.  "Shall we throw away the right to strike?"  demanded Mr. Lewis. "I don't think so."  He continued: "The right of individual freedom and freedom of contract must be preserved  if we are to maintain our way of government in  the States and Canada. The only difference  between a free man and a serf is the right of a  free man to withhold his services."  This inspiring statement is true, up to a point.  In a free society every man has the right to stop  work when he pleases. There is nothing in our  law to prevent him starving to death if he so  desires. The right is fully as real as it is ridiculous.  . But where Mr. Lewis' logic collapses is in its  inverse application. If it is true that no man  should be compelled to work, then it is equally  true that no man should be compelled not to  work.  Canadians do not deny workers the right to  strike. What they do wonder about, however,  is the right of striking workers to prevent non-  striking workers from going on with their jobs  ���jurisdictional disputes, for instance.  It is a strange kind of freedom which confers  free-will on one class by taking free-will away  from another class. It almost happened here.  Or, if we put it another way, why do strikers  have the monopoly on freedom? The right to  work is quite as vital and quite as basic as the  right to strike.  "The only difference between a free man and  a serf," Mr. Lewis said, "is the right of the free  man to withhold his services." When strikers  seek to interfere with those who wish to work,  they are laying down the further principle that  it is freedom to want to strike, but serfdom to.  want to work.  Mr. Lewis' appeal to philosophy lacks something, in the light of a statement by Mr. Justice  Roach who, reporting on the eastern steel strike,  said:  "Employees of each plant now find themselves  in the position where they are no longer masters of their own destiny. The union has become the master rather than the servant of the  employees and in the hands of the group of men  known as the national advisory committee of  the United Steel Workers Union rests the economic destiny of 13,000 employees of the steel  industry. In my opinion this constitutes a dictatorship. Freedom of the employee to work,  at rates which may be acceptable to him, has  been taken away."  CHIier Opinions  EDUCATION IN LIVING  (Christian Science Monitor)  ARE YOU ONE of the people who live in a  town where teachers are paid less than garbage collectors? Are you pleased with this  situation? Or are you satisfied with a handsome school building as a monument to community concern for education, even though the  classes are overcrowded, the teachers are ill-  trained, and the students ill-equipped" for citizenship?  Teachers' salaries are not the basic problem,  though they are the chief issue in the present  educational crisis. The basic problem is whether  democracy can survive in an age of mass pressures unless its citizens are trained in the  analytic method, cultural standards, and knowledge of the world which will enable them to  resist the blandishments of propaganda and  organized self-interest.  Too many people think of education only as  a preliminary to earning a living, and hence  dismiss much of it as unimportant to that end.  When they see it as training in the very process of living as a free, independent thinker  they will offer at least as much inducement to  good teachers as to good garbage collectors.  An Englishman lived in his brougham;  His reason, 'tis fair to assougham,  Was that cost had increased,  While income had ceased���  It saved him the price of a rougham.  Men try to convert the world to their way  of thinking so they can continue undisturbed  in their way of living.  TEXADA NARRATIVES  MAKE A joyful noise <unto the Lord, all  ye lands.

When I walk up the Sechelt Hill,  Nobody seems to care.  Some people bow, and then pass on,  With rapt and distant air.  Arid motor cars go purring by,  But never turn to smile,  And great big trucks, and boys on bikes,  And so, mile after mile.  But when I climb the Rocky Road,  I see friends all the way.  The optimists, who gaily cry,  This is a lovely day!"  tei  And sympathetic souls, who call,  "You're nearly at the top!"  And very tired travellers,  So glad to chat and stop.  And thus, along the road of life,  I walk the smooth highway,  And few there are who care enough  To pass the time of day.  But when o'er stony ppths I plod,  And boutders hur&rhy feet?*        b  It really is astonishing  How many friends I meet.  ���Winnifred M. New  "HUFF! HUFF!" Great sighs  rose from the harbor and filled all the empty spaces, ran  through little trails and seeped  into houses. "Huff! Huff! Huff!"  They were not hurried sighs but  great leisurely ones.  - Suddenly someone started for  the door, shouting, "Whales���  blackfish!*' Everyone rushed  out then. From a vantage point  on a rocky ledge could be^ seen  the instigators of the big huffs  that pushed all over the little  village :ofv Van^ Anda. * -Froni?  along the southeast shore came  the little fleet, close in, it followed the contour of Van Anda  Bay, out by the bluff, and disappeared into Marble Bay.  . The seven of them were following their pilot as truly as  they could, hugging the shoreline, blowing the water two or  three feet into the air and  breathing heavily. They swam  close to the surface.  It was an eyent at Texada to  see the big blackfish, for in recent years they do not often  troop past. Older villagers recalled the late nineties and early  1900's when whales and black-  fish were numerous in the  straits.  In reality, blackfish are not  whales. They are members of  the dolphin and porpoise family.  Being a social type of sea animal, they usually travel in  herds, there being anywhere  from ten to a hundred in a  herd. Those living in the polar  waters of the north J^nigrate  south in winter to breeds5 Hence  in the early days Of the white  man on our coast, great numbers of blackfish travelled the  _  Friday* November 22, 1946  coastal waters. Then the creatures were literally slaughtered  for their valuable oil, until now  it is an occasion when one appears.  John Edwards, an old prospector/ who claimed to be the  first white man to actually live  on Texada Island, told later  comers of ^going into the sheltered harbor at the northern tip  of the island. There on the  beach were the big black kettles  where the blubber was rendered. The little cove has retained  its suggestive name ��� Blubber  Bay.  In the early years of the century ninety-foot whales were a  common sight to the miners of  Texada.  Natives   used   large   dugouts  equipped with sails to hunt the  giant  animals.    Sometimes the  frail whaler got the worst of an  'encounter. :,y .. Certainly     greafc  danger always adcbinpanied the  intrepid hunter on such an expedition.   Once the harpoon had  bitten deeply into the creature's  body, there was just one thing  to do ��� hang on for dear life  until the animal grew exhausted  and brought to an end its sound- (  ing and threshing.    The   most j  reckless  of the hunters  would ,  watch  for  a  moment to jump \  onto   the   creature's   back   and ���  drive a knife into a vital part.  Often days passed before death {  came. }.  . One story that has clung to  Texada's waters through the  years insists that one of these  sailing whalers was towed by a  whale completely around the  island before the struggle ended.  Two sisters remember a trip  in a rowing boat from the mainland to Van Anda when they  used all their skill to avoid the  sea monsters ��� they counted  nine of them in a few minutes.  One did break water perilously \ |  near, then dived, throwing the f  small boat sideways several feet.  Two of a Kind  Photo  Courtesy   "Forest   and  Outdoors" Friday.

Page Five  OVER $65,006,000 in war expenditures was supervised by  the Canadian Pacific Railway's  purchasing department at Vancouver from 1940 until the  closing of the special office there  a few weeks ago.  The purchases were under  the direction of S. V. T. Jeffery,  C.P.R. purchasing agent in  Vancouver who maintained an  office staff in the depot building  for the handling of this work.  All-over figures for Canada  supervised by the C.P.R. totalled more than $268,000,000 and  were made up by purchases for  the department of munitions  and supply for navy, army and  air force institutes of Great  Britain, the official canteen  service of His Majesty's forces  and the C.P.R. munitions department, (the last for materials  on contracts placed in the Canadian Pacific's own shops).  Services other than supervisory were part of the contributions of the , C.P.R. purchasing  department which loaned leading officers for war service  such as John Eaton, assistant  general purchasing agent at  Montreal who served the department of munitions and supply  at Ottawa on loan as director-  general of purchasing, and W.  E. Wilford of Toronto who was  general purchasing agent for  munitions and supply, also on  loan.

Discussing the American removal of all controls���except in  rents, sugar and rice���one official said:  "Personally, I'm inclined to  feel 'Thank God that's all over'."  Officials of the Canadian  board have long taken the view  that if the United States had six  months of clear, strike-free production to get goods rolling, then  the Americans could probably  dispense with all major controls. The fact that the removal  of O.P.A. may have been done  crudely, vclunisily and with the  maximum of political disturbance would not be allowed to  obscure the other fact that the  U.S. has had roughly six months  of strike-free production.  Canadian wartime prices and  trade board officials are obviously hoping that the worst of  the price increases in the United  States will soon be over, and  that pressure of prices in the  United States will soon be over,  and that pressure of prices will  not start still greater pressures  for a new general increase in  American wages.

"If I  brought a donkey a pail of water  and a pail of beer, which would  he drink?"  "The water," came a woman's  voice from the front row.  "And why would he take the  water?" asked the lecturer.

Jim MacGregor, son of Colonel John  MacGregor, obtained a copy of  the photograph from the man  who took it 51 years ago.  The tree, which was 77 feet in  circumference and 25 feet in  diameter, was felled by George  Carey, pictured standing by it.  Mr. MacGregor came in possession of the photo a year and a  half ago when he saw the original tacked on the wall of the  toll booth at Second Suspension  bridge in Kitsilino Canyon.  "The toll collector claimed to  have taken it," explained MacGregor, "and he certainly looked old enough to have done so.  The picture "was all wrinkled  and yellow with age."
