Prior to its repeal last month,  an order-in-council under the  War Measures Act in 1940 prohibited the purchase or use Of  explosives without a proper  permit. y  ., Farmers, prospectors, and /  contractors can now get their ';  supplies of explosives without  supervision. In Powell River  district, tfye applicants were  farmers and property-owners  who//yrished to cleat land, put  in foundations for houses, or  perhaps do a bit of rp^^Ork.  ,^uS_^nj__, quarry //building,  and rOad clearing all came in  for use of explosives,y and operatorsrequired permit^, before  beginning work.  "The idea behind the restriction was to prevent any chance  for espionage during wartime,"  said Constable C. J. Dawson, of  the local police detachment. "It  was a blanket order for the Dominion, and intendedto provide  a check on Who purchased explosives in each district."  Value of this security measure  is shown in the fact that, while  millions of pounds of explosives  were used in Canada during the  war years, /not a single case of  sabotage ~ involving  commercial  explosives has been reported.  ������* .  One of the important provisions of the wartime regulation  was to prohibit the sale^of explosives except by vendors who  were owners or operators of  licensed factories and licensed  magazines. Some measure of  control over the packing sand  transportation of explosives is  still retained by the new order.  By MAISIE DEVITT  WONDER why it .is that -whenever anybody comes up with a  worthwhile- suggestion that%6uld: benefit a lot of people,  a few narrow-minded reformers get up on their hind legs and  raise a holler, and it is allowed to fall through. Though why on  earth the majority allows itself to be dictated to by a small but  vociferous group is beyond me. For instance, sweepstakes for  hospitals have been mooted time and again. If a plebiscite was  taken on the question their isn't much doubt that it would pass,  and couldn't we Use a few modern hospitals?

Friday, January 17, 1947  Machines and  THE SOCIALIST-C.C.F. Party of Canada in all  its publications draws attention to the  achievements of the Socialistic Soviet Union  of Russia. This is not unnatural because both  political parties, however they hate each other  locally, have the same goal-���the "eradication  of capitalism," as the C.C.F. pledge puts it.  Certainly Russia has come a long way from  the mud and peasantry of the Czarist regime,  but after 30 years of socialism it shows increasingly many of the weaknesses feared by  liberal thinkers ��� weaknesses believed to be  inherent in any scheme of full socialism.  Under democracy's free, competitive business  and political system individual citizens have  almost unlimited opportunities of self development. Unknown men and women step from  the ranks to leadership in government and industry. Often their tenure of office is short  but always others are at hand to succeed them.  The flow of affairs proceeds without interruption and the direction ever is upward ��� increased efficiency, bigger production and better standards on all the fronts of western civilization.  Socialist  Russia  suffers   shortages   in  three  major  departments���steel,  machine  tools and  power, both electric and oil, to speed their production.   Behind this is the big state's own confessed   weakness.    She  has  not   the  men  to  direct her mammoth resources nor the skilled  worker at bench and lathe.   Nor in thirty years  has she been able to train them.   The socialist  ;, workman goes so far���then he stops, because  ���;..there is. no incentive to do more.    As every  question is political,  he is safe  only  on' the  lowest steps of the ladder.    One of the key-  "' points being watched is the machine tool in-  ]   dustry.    Now  Russia produces around  18,000  ;   units annually; in 1942, the United States turn-  |   ed out 307,000���a vast difference. Machine tools  j   require supreme skill to produce and the mass  j   mentality of socialism does not appear to be  .   equal to it.���The Printed Word.  < ��� ' y.     ..."

Old-Fashioned Hoi f �� irt  THESE  frosty  days  have sent  many  people,  through the hinterland and even pretty well  down into the suburbs, scurrying into attics  l. and cupboards and storage closets to haul out  :j I what they could in the way of foot-warmers.  i; For many, hot water bottles have been hard to  .'���'* get, but they kept their feet warm just the  : same.  Grandmother knew all of the several kinds  of foot-warmers, arid passed along the lore  :  pertaining to them.  In her day, there were the  rather swank ones  made  of soapstone;  there  were the makeshift kind, which Were no more  than flatirons. And there were the prosaic kind,  ;  nothing more than bricks,'preferably the hard  y yellow ones, worn smooth with use.. The flat-  i iroris and the bricks were usually wrapped in  -  newspapers or towels,  after, of course,, being  heated to the right, temperature on the old  ������ kitchen range. They went into the bed about  'I half an hour ahead of the occupant, and spread  ��� their comforting aura of warmth through the  : sheets and blankets and down into the mattress  I and in due time into the icy feet which sought  ' them out.  That is the basic lore of foot-warmers, and  ��� it still holds true. Was there ever a more comforting sensation than to crawl down between  those sheets and find that hot brick or flat-  iron or soapstone? Was there ever a more  satisfying odor than the smell of hot newspaper,  not quite scorching, which wafted up from the  ^ sheets when one opened them to crawl iri?  *������' Bedsocks are for those who need or like them.

A recent study of 50 of the largest businesses  iri America may throw some light oh that question. ��� *.;.{  Of the 143 executives who comprise top management of these companies, one started work  for $1.50 a week.

Only seven received more than $25 a week���  the highest getting paid $69.23 a week.  The average starting wage of all 143 was  $13.40 a week.  Thus all 143, it can truthfully be said, have  come up from the ranks.  American management is a constant stream  of new men and new ideas. That is its strength  and the country's strength. Moving w;ater turns  the mill-wheel.  Neither the men and women in industry nor  the money in industry can be effective without  good management.

The new maximum retail  prices on a 16-ounce jar will  range from 38 to 42 cents, where  previously the comparable prices  were 19 to 25 cents.  The increased cost to manufacturers is a' direct result of  the cessation of bulk purchasing of peanuts by Commodity  Prices Stabilization Corporation, officials said. The move  is part of the general policy of  stopping subsidy and trading  loss payments on food products.  Manufacturers are now largely dependent on the United  States market for their supplies  at mach higher prices than those  at; which the nuts were being  supplied to the trade by the corporation. As the increased cost  could not be absorbed by the  trade an .upward adjustment of  the ceiling price was necessary.  HALF MOON BAY  MRS.  R. MOSIER  yy        Correspondent  MR.

The first play oh the program;  '^Submerged^ by; N. Stuart Cott-  man and%e Verghe Shiaw, is a  very difficult play to present;  the scene being a compartment  in a wrecked submerged submarine. The effect was accpmr.  plished very expertly with a  white spotlight. ZThe play Was  directed fey Miss Sheila Clavelle,  and two butstandih^ performances were noted, that of Don  Herori as the cowardly Brice,  and George Watson as Jorgeri-  soh.  The second play, "Wild-Cat  Willie Gets Girl Trouble," by  A. C. Martens, was a story of a  boy having a blind date thrust  upon him by his sister. Imagining the date as having numerous physical defects, Willie tries  to palm the date over oh a  friend, with very humorous results, only to find in the end the  date is more than presentable.  This   play   was   directed  by  Robert Hurley, with, Ramon  Bennett as Wild-Cat Willie,^  proving, qui0t yya natural actor,  while Pat &ulliyan as Gladys,  his sister, and Mary Scott as the  iribttfer, poftrayigcl their p&rts  welll1"'" y ";"���."  ^ :m0^- vmi---'^  Utesismes  fPaslpwood Industry  GIBSONS Landing���The pulpwood industry, which was  discontinued last fall, has been  resumed here; T.

It wbuldbe much easier  for me to tell you how to make a few good mustard plasters, or  describe the taste and effect pf practically all the cough syrups on  the market, plus a few of the inhalants, not to mention the cough  drops. It was Oliver Wendell Holmes who said thatZ coughsYwere  ungrateful things. You find one but in the cold; you take it up,  nurse it, make everything of it, dress it up warm, give it all sorts;  of balsams and other food it likes, and carry itaround in^ yyour  bosom as if it were a miniature lap dog.

For  once in my life I had very little turkey over the festive season.  Sure, they gave me some in the hospital on Christmas day, but  not very much as my general condition made a restricted diet  necessary. However, I did en joy.what I was allowed to eat even  though the quantity necessarily had to be small. The little Christmas cakes they gave Znsyyvyere ever so nice to look at, all dressed  up in nice white icing with a little red candle burning brightly  on top of each individual cake. I knew Christmas cake just wasn't  on my menu that day and rather than keep it until-1 was well  enough, to eat" it, thought I would surprise my better half and save  It for "hirii.

HOME OIL PRODUCTS  SECHELT GARAGE  Les Young, Proprietor  1  Skin Irritation  ' POWELL River mill employees  and district painters who have  suffered from skin inflammation (dermatitis) are warned by  the B.C. Workmen's Compensation Board that solvents such as  gasoline, kerosene, petroleum  spirits, Stoddard solvent, and  various paint thinners all can  cause such a skin irritation.  The defatting action of solvents on the skiri sets up a  chapping condition, which leads  to' dermatitis. ��� Workers using  such solvents are advised not to  employ them for cleaning the  skin and never to dip the unprotected hand in solvents.  The irritating action on the  skin makes it liable to infection  from'small scratches and abrasions. Persbns in occupations  where some soiling of the clothing, is likely should be provided  with, solvent-proof protective  clothing. Where only the hands  are involved, solvent-proof  gloves or protective cream  should be used.  The practice of removing  paint stains from the skin with  solvents often results in a  serious dermatitis. Paint stains,  and in fact almost any dirt  which can be removed with a  harmful solvent, can be just as  easily removed with a harmless :  grease such as cold cream.   J  Workers who are unavoidably  exposed to solvents . should,  after washing thoroughly in  neutral soap and water, rub a  good cream containing lanolin  into the skin.  By Betiy Budget  SHEETING  LADIES ���Yare you wondering  what has- become of all the  Ysheetirig you hoped to find in  the stores by now and can't?  Well the hospitals have a priority on it and so far there isn't  enough to fill their requirements  and leave much over for the  general public;  B��BY DiAPERS  Another thing, if your new  son or daughter hasn't as many  of those three-cornered pants  as you would like; the hospitals  have a ^priority on a big percentage of the output on those,  too. A few do trickle through  to the wholesalers and are allotted but to their dealers, but you  have to be on hand when tney  are. put on display.  i^EKTS. WEAR  I don't suppose many men  read this column but here is a  hint or r two you ladies might  pass oxi. One of the merchants  is expecting a representative of  a riien'sy-suit manofacturer very  soon Yand yhe will be taking  ;orde^yfor"men's suits. Delivery-  is guaranteed in two or three  weeks.  We dp not get very much encouragement as to men's shirts  and underwear. A local merchant tells us of opening an invoice; and .reading with great  pleasure;, "... Pairs of men's  shorts, so many gym shirts."  But his ���. pleasure was shortlived, for up in the corner it  said "For delivery next June."  Oh well, perhaps another patch  or two will hold on till then!  ORANGES  I suppose you have all noticed  thatv the price ; of oranges has  dropped to almost;half. That  isYbecausa; ol ^sprne. mixTiip in  American markets and prices.  One grocer suggests we give our  families theirl fill��� of 'them before the powers-that-tie get  things ; straightened out and  shoot the prices, up.   ,  SPRING CLOTHES PEGS  The manufacturers.claim that  the ceiling price on the .old-  fashioned wooden spring.clothes  pegs is so low that they cannot  make them at a profit, so . . .  well they are making plastic  ones.   They are very pretty and  .s-w  A popular newcomer, ori the  bookstands is a work arguing  the benefits of an exclusive  meat diet. For another dollar  you could get a gypsy dream  book and look this up.  to so many of us who have been  needing pegs so badly a real  help but, oh the price!  PEGLESS LINES  Of course you might persuade  hubby to install one of those  newfangled clothes lines that  need no clothes pejgs. The line  grips the clothes as you put  them out and lets go of them  just as easily as you reel them  in. The hardware stores have  these lines packaged complete  with pulleys, etc.  PEANUT  BUTTER  And more about ceiling prices.  In the very near future there  will be lots of peanut butter in  the stores. One merchant hopes  that even by the time this goes  to print he may have received  a small order with steady shipments to follow. Why the  quantity all at once you ask?  The ceiling is off peanuts. They  can now be imported from the  States and will give a better  grade of butter than we have  been getting���when we could  get it���but the price!  THE GARDENER  - The gardener says that as  soon as you can work the ground  you should prepare soil for  raspberry canes if you- intend  setting out a new patch. Young  caries are best for transplanting,  which should be done in February. They should be cut to  within six inches to produce  better canes and better fruit.  This, however, prohibits a crop  the first year.  An elderly woman came into  a grocer's store this week and  asked for a tin of cocoa.  "Lovely drink," she remarked  to the chap who served her,  adding confidentially, "My old  man has been drinking it for  years. We can't afford beer for  both of us."  Wm.

He said, "Ajax,  if we would only keep the corri-y  manidments, there would be no  need ;for so much worry and  suspicion in the world. You,  know, there was a wicked man,  who started the war, by ignoring those -same commandments.
