Equipment for hot lunches is  to be installed at the school so  that children can do away with  sandwiches. A clothes drier is to  be placed in the furnace room  to enable them to dry wet  clothes on arrival at school.  : An. electric phonograph -will  be purchased and will be kept at  the school; and facilities of the  travelling library will be used.  Decisions to make these improvements came at the Parent-  Teacher Association meeting  here in the Legion Hall.  The meeting also decided to  submit a brief for delegates to  carry to Hon. E. C. Carson,  minister of public works at Vic-,  toria, on the condition of roads  at Sechelt. School buses have a  difficult job negotiating some  Of the roads in the area.  Next  meeting,  to be held in  - February,   will. be  a  social   to  raise' funds  for  the  benefit of  school children^  j  PENINSULA . residents who  have taken an interest in building dams for water supply may  find helpful information on ir-.  rigation provided by the 'B.C.  Research Council.  Dams in the streams, high in  the^surrounding mountains, provide they life-giving irrigation  water for the apple orchards  and farms of the Okanagan valley., :���:  Made from, the most economical ahd readily "available ma-  ; tenal, Ythe . eiarth of the . surrounding hiUsideymany of these  dams have washed out with  d^yastatitig resiilts. Crops failed for iSck of water, creeks arid  irrigatidhYflumesf were blocked  with silt and the investment of  up to $20,000 in the dam itself  was lost.  Now, however, through earth  dam construction studies carried out jointly by the British  Columbia Research Council  and the water rights branch of  the department of lands and  forests, dams can be built with  much greater assurance of  sajietyY'       ��  Important economies have  been -found possible by modifying the usual construction  methods. Oddly enough, the old  discarded method of compacting  the soil by puddling or soaking  with: y watery .has frequently  proved better, adapted to existing conditions than the currently general use of heavy  rollers.; Y;YyyY'; _*__'���    y  Y^ of the  B.C.

Local? district and-  provincial competitions culminate in the annual program of national project  contests, and educational features, sponsored by the Canadian Council on  Boys' and Girls' Club Work. Forty-toyo teams, of two members each, participated in the national club event for 1946, held in conjunction with the Royal  Winter Fair.

Great work  has beeii done by Brownie  among the boys and a vote of  thanks was tendered him by the  audience. He organized the  boxing club, and has developed  among the boys a love of the  sport for sport's sake, and a  keen sensfe of fair play. The  club had one visitor from Gibsons Landing, and is hop:  more competitors in the  exhibitions.

C  The north, coast's Most Modern Department Store  ��� * *- ������-���*������ .i, .���( i  OWING TO "the serious shortage  of nurses throughout Canada,  the Dominion department of  labor is directing a national appeal to Canadian women to  consider nursing as a profession.  In commenting on the urgent  need for nurses in hospitals,  homes, health centres, and in  industry, Arthur MacNamara,  Dominion deputy minister of  labor, stated:  "This appeal is a national appeal, and every local office of  the National Employment Service throughout the Dominion  will support the campaign.  There is a greater demand today than ever before for nurs-  : ing ; s^rvicev Estimiateid.^;total  shortage of professional nursing  personnel in all branches of the  nursing service now stands at  8,700. Of this number 7,000 are  needed in all types of hospitals,  .1,200 in the private duty field,  ahd._. 500 in the public health  field.  "Today's nurse has need of a  broad, professional education.  The great advances in scientific  medicine have called for similar  advances in nursing. The nurse ,  has become a highly-skilled  expert.  "To enter a school of nursing,  a student must be at least 18  years of age and must be able to  pass a thorough physical examination. She must.be a high  school graduate, preferably with  senior matriculation."  In conclusion, Mr. MacNamara  pointed out that the value of  nurse training, both to the young  woman and to the community  as a whole, cannot be exaggerated, even if she does not intend to follow nursing as a  career.  f"iftober^%li-',d6wn^'c^''iii5- again,   *  but see you on Monday!

Do we  really mind.  t During the performance put  on by the Grossmiths just before Christmas a sum of seven  dollars and twenty-five cents  was netted. This was donated  to the Junior Red Cross by the  students of our school. This was  then added to the National Service-Fund to aid the bombed  children of Britain.  WHO'S WHO?

Assurance that the butter  ration would not fall below that  figure during the seasonally  short period of February and  March came with the announcement that the United Kingdom  had agreed to divert 12,000,000  pounds of New Zealand and  Australian butter aproximately  a pound per person���into Canada from her own imports.  The diversion, arranged by  agreement between Britain and  THE  By Betty Budget  BARGAINS  THE.USUAL January sales are  on and most of the stores are  offering good bargains in odd-  ment lines. It pays to take a  look around these days, you are  sure to" find something you need  at a reduced price.  CARDS  Greeting cards for all occasions. Very often I hear people .  say, "They are just a racket." I  don't know. I suppose manufacturers do make a good all-  year revenue from them, but  then one person does not spend  a great deal on cards and who  doesn't like to receive a card for  their birthdayv anniversary, if  they are ill, etc.* especially if  theyare' chosenvwith* a, certain  person in mind. One of the  smaller stores in the district has  an exceptionally good line of  "different cards" to offer.  THE GARDEN  The gardener says: "At the  beginning of February it-is time  to watch for the growth in rhubarb. To get early rhubarb it  is a good idea to cover the roots  with a nail keg with both ends  knocked out or similar article.  Just place on end over the plant  and the dark will tend to make  the rhubarb grow to the light.  It will help greatly to put manure around the outside of the  keg to give added warmth and  on cold nights throw something  over the top to keep out the  frost. Rhubarb grown in this  manner is much superior to that  left to natural growth, being  more tender, sweeter and of a  better flavor.

His weekly quota of six ounces  of butter and margarine combined will be maintained.  But it did mean that Britain  had virtually dipped into her  own reserves to the extent of  12,000,000 pounds, since the butter normally would have gone  to that country.  It was pointed out in London  that Canada has no margarine  to supplement her ration.        4  Ever notice hov/ the guy whb  t ' N      '*  seems to be so fairminded neve��?j  seems to have a mind of his \  own about anything? 1  FOOD SPECIALS  GRAPEFRUIT JUICE  20-oz. tin.- AA#  2 for _____._.

Lear Sir:  During the late miner's strike  in the U.S.A. a high ranking  commentator was giving a portrayal of the miner. He said the  miner's Union was their religion. All we hear about the  miners, is over the air, or in  the newspapers. While I sit at  the feet of these learned commentators, I would like to give  my impression of the miner.  The statement that the union  is their religion, would suggest  they were like headless horsemen. I am inclined to think  their religion comes first, plus  the bible, and their union relative and along with the other  organizations. They usually are  musical, and are men whose  dangerous work, makes them  live closer to God.  When there is a disaster we  hear of them praying to God,  and not to the leaders of the  unions. We only hear of their  strikes over 'the air, hot of cultural attainments, and there  must be many. Like the farmer  they have ideals. The phrase,  "Let us worship God", used by  a decent, sober head of a family introducing family worship,  inspired Robert Burns to write  "A Cotter's Saturday Night".  The following is a few verses:  "Then kneeling down, to heavens Eternal King  The saint, the father,  and the  husband prays.  Hope   springs   exulting   on  triumphant  wing v  That  thus  they  all shall  meet  in future days. \  There  ever  bask  in  uncreated  rays,. \  No more to .sigh or shed the fitter tear, /  Together   hymning  their  Creator's praise /  In such society, yet still rAore .  dear: ' 1  While circling time moves round  in an eternal sphere.  Then   homeward   all   take   off  their several way:  The  youngling  cottagers  retire  to rest.  The   parent   pair   their   secret  homage pay,  And proffer up to Heaven the  warm request  That He, who stills the raven's  clamorous nest,  And decks the lily fair in flowery pride,  Would, in the way His wisdom  sees the best,  For  them   and  for  their  little  ones  provide,  But, chiefly, in their hearts with  grace   divine,   preside.  From    scenes    like    these    old  Scotia's grandeur springs.  That makes her lovea at home,  revered abroad:  Princes and Lords are but the  breath of kings,  "An  honest  man's  the  noblest  work of God;  And    cerbes,    in    fair    virtue's  heavenly road,  The  cottage  leaves; the  palace  far behind.  What is a lordling's pomp?���a  cumbrous load,  Disguising   oft   the   wretch   of  human kind,  Studied in arts of hell, in wickedness refined."  Signed:  Margaret Allen, Sechelt.

Page Four.  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.  Friday, January 31, 1947  RECENTLY in Vancouver, in an address to  members of the B.C. Women's Christian Temperance Union, Rev. R. J. Mclntyre, general  secretary of the B.C. Temperance League,  charged that "liquor trade uses goodwill advertisements in newspapers to win the backing  of the press."  Newspapers of today are conducted, not as  special   organs  to  voice  the   opinions   of  the  privileged  few,  but as media through which  y universal news is disseminated and white space  sold to pay expenses.  A liquor advertisement arrives and passes  through the business office of a newspaper in  the same way as does an advertisement for a  bakery, a motor car, a church meeting, or a  political party. It is merely the sale of so much  space at the prevailing advertising rate, and  . the advertiser is not granted any special concessions. The W.C.T.U. would be permitted to  buy space to contradict any advertising it did  not agree with, if it so desired, on the same  : basis.  ��� , It is: an anomaly, however, that while the  ; liquor interests buy the space, the W.C.T.U. is  ! A Hand for  The Mitten  ; THE TIMES of London recently drew attention  | to the fact that: "Mankind, as a whole, ignor-  . antly derides mittens, as suitable only for old  ; ladies." It is, indeed, the case that, in general,  ) male dignity has always demanded freedom  ���J and independence for the fingers���no knight  ever flung down his mitten as a gage of battle,  \ and no iron hand ever functioned in aught but  ) a velvet glove.  ��� <��� ���  i    But iwhy should  the  mitten  not e be taken  ! seriously? It may be that memories of the  | nursery, cling to it���but against these may be  ��� set its record in the ring and in the Arctic. It  ;is 'certainly warmer than the glove, and there  ;is at least some; force in the argument that it  iis better to feel one*s fingers 'all thuiabs than  J not to feel them _at all. ���{  ���iWe Come ��f Ajfe  'TOP NEWS this month is the new \status of  Canadians as such.    Primary question in? the  j minds of those who have given it an# thought  'at all is "How will the Canadian Citizenship  Act affect me?"    The answer is, briefly:  | If you are a native-born Canadian, or a  (British subject with domicile in this country,  ; or a naturalized Canadian, you automatically  twill become a Canadian citizen under the new  | law.  j You may, if you intend to travel, br if you  j collect souvenirs, pay $5 for a very pretty  j certificate which is called proof of citizenship.  jjYour birth certificate, however, will serve the  . sarr.e purpose, and it. costs: a dollar..  | In some cities there was an effort to surround  ithis occasion of the incidence of Canadian citi-  jzenship.Avith fitting ceremony and dignity. That  ���is good, for in the past too little has been done  .to impress on the minds of newcomers the in-'  rheritance they will share and be expected to  ��� support arid build to greater achievement.  From now on every effort should be made to  tv-Y  newcomers of their rights  and  responsibilities.   They should learn that our system of  ;1 justice,  even  at the  expense  of  undermining  ;; itself sometimes, presumes that a man is inno-  ��� cent until he is found guilty; that the laws  ; which make us fjee men were only achieved  .I by stubborn men' who fought for freedom in  i spite of persecution and even death; that while  J they livje under our system of laws they will  J be responsible for maintaining our democratic y  ;system.   And it should be made clear that free-  ;doms such as they do not include the freedom  to sell the country down the river.  And While the Citizenship Act will clarify  the legal status of the Canadian citizen, an important psychological effect will be to create ^  a feeling of solidarity in the country.   We can *"  now   identify   ourselves   and   eliminate   the  l hyphen in Scotch-Canadian, English-Canadian  ;and perhaps even in French-Canadian and become simply, Canadians.  [ But paramount among all this in our newfound nationality is the fact that because we  ; are Canadian we should take a narrow nation-  'alistic view. We are, now and forever, citizens  iof the world, whether we recognize it or like it.  given free editorial and news space to castigate  those who help make a free press possible.  Mr. Mclntyre then came up. with another  hackneyed charge. "The liquor interests, he  said, are lining the pockets of the editors to  get them on their side.  So long as newspapers decline to dignify  these absurdities with a reply, so long as they  decline to refute such wild absurdities and unfounded and unprovable charges, then just as  long can Mr. Mclntyre or any other mountebank get away with them.  It goes without saying that Mr. Mclntyre  would be the first to charge intolerance and  discrimination ii his meetings were ignored or  inadequately reported and that he would wail  against the "kept" press.  The very fact that the newspapers of the nation are willing to publish this attack on them  should be proof to even the average intelligence  that a free press exists.  Newspapers do hot "accept" liquor advertising. They seek it along with all the other  lines they carry, because the advertiser is willing to pay for space to tell the world about his  product, withal. keeping inside the bounds of  accepted propriety.  It is high time a halt was called and the lie  given to the constant flow of irresponsible  statements such as people like Mr. Mclntyre  are always so anxious to publicize.  n  Poetfs Corner  CONTENTMENT  They think I'm mighty lonesome here,   ���  They do not know my feet  Were never made for busy ways,  Or meant for city street.

A FREE PRESS IS THE PRIVILEGE  OF;:�� FREE COUNTRY  By MAISIE DEVITT  ..,1 NOTE THAT we are being asked to give our views on the subject  of compulsory voting. Now despite the fact that I believe, everyone of voting age should bestir himself enough to go to the polls  and cast his ballot, I, along with the great majority, can't help  feeling my hackles rise Whenever confronted with that provocative  word "compulsory." f  Then, too, I feel that anyone too lethargic, "too self-centred, too  uninterested in his country's welfare to vote, may certainly be  forced to exercise his franchise, but not to do so intelligently.  Of what earthly use to the country are votes cast by women  who say prettily and helplessly, "Oh dear, I just don't know a  thing about politics, but my husband likes so and so���I guess I'll  vote for* him?"  Or by men, too lazy to think for themselves, who proclaim  proudly, "What was good enough for Dad is good enough for me"'  Thisjtype has never heard of, -or helped to oil, the wheel of progress.  People who care how the country is. run need no compulsion.  And a deluge of forced votes cast by unthinking uncaring voters  could, and would, cause political chaos.   Just one woman's opinion,  of course, for what it's worth.  PRICE CONTROLS ...'*.,'.'���.'.  . Controls are being loosened at breathtaking speed, Ahd,the  way prices are sky-rocketing has Mrs. Housewife also breathless;  A dollar says "Goodbye" almost before it says "Hello." Wages are \  lagging so far behind in the race that one wonders whether the  government has planned ahead for the strikes looming on the horizon. Anyhow there is one way, and one only to keep prices, within reason, arid I note with pleasure that Mrs. Housewife is fbllow-  ing the rule these days. Don't buy luxury goods at outrageous cost,  no matter how much you may long for them. For instance, an  inferior grade of tuna fish that is selling locally at 55 cents. Our  own red salmon is far superior in quality, and far more reasonable in price.   Maybe that's why it isn't so plentiful.  So far as clothing is concerned, one wouldn't mind a raise in ^  price so much if there was a commensurate raise in quality.   This   )  particularly applies to children's wear and shoes.   What wouldn't  most mothers give to find some really tough, sturdy footwear for  their small runabouts.   And I suppose that if you complained to  the Povsters-Thai-Be about this stupendous drain on the  family  \  resources���they would remark, in their quaint Alice-in-Wonder- \\  land manner, that it was true kiddies shoes were made of paper,   \  ���but it was the "very,best paper."

It is hoped that if anyone ever wishes to offer constructive criticism or suggestions, they will do so through  the appointed representatives of  the Pender Harbour Hospital  Society in writing, so that their  ideas may be given careful attention at the monthly hospital  board meeting.  Tommy DaVey has acquired  a new 25-h.p. Vivian to replace  the 15-horse motor that has been  pushing the "Dorothy M." about  for some time.

But it should be borne in mind  that if you are not a contract  member, and you consult the  doctor, you will be expected to  pay him direct whatever his  charges Yare, and you will also  receive a bill for any services  the hospital may render you,  either in the form of medicines  the doctor may prescribe for you  as an out patient or for the regular charges the hospital makes  for your stay in hospital as a  bed patient.  It seems _to be the agreed  opinion of the best hospital  authorities that it is better that  the hospital be run as a unit in  itself, and that the doctor should  just be a visiting doctor, treating by, permission of the Board  of Governors of the hospital,  patients who are admitted as  "in patients", submitting ; his  own personal charges direct to  the patient, the hospital accepting the responsibility of  collecting its charges for all hospital services rendered.  Dr. Warriner will use the hospital admitting offices as his  place for consulting patients,  and will make his own arrangements as to consulting hours.

Commemorative stamps are  regarded as special issues over  and above the current issue being used and are printed in restricted quantites which, once  the supply is exhausted through  post office sale, are not replaced.  Ordinarily, the post office  prints enough copies of a commemorative stamp to last a  month or two. They are sold  through post offices concurrently with regular issues.  Canada's last commemorative  set was the three-cent royal  visit issue of 1939 and it lasted  only a few months before supplies were exhausted and the  stamps were out of print.  for the construction of a home  of your own.

According to army headquarters, it will be placed on the  army's rank system in the bottom categories but for pay purposes only. It will seldom be  heard anywhere else, and certainly not on a parade square.

Then he will be graded  as a private first class at $61 a  month instead of $54, but only  in the paymaster's books. He  will not put up a stripe and will  still be. called private.
