HILDA NUAL, member of  Everyman Theatre group  company vto ^mafcetyai living  in Canada since movie interests  killed off Canadian drama as a  matter of policy in the 1920's  and '30's.  'Way back in 1932, Vancouver  born Sydney Risk, then drama  directing at U.B.C., where he  had* just graduated, was appalled by the national frustration of Canadian actors, playwrights and play audiences.  With Hollywood already picking  off and one by one closing  or con verting the Canadian  "live" theatres, any young man  or woman with anything to say  in..... the dramatic . medium .had  to go to the States to say it or  shut up, while Canadiatt audiences began to grow up who  would rieyer know the vital difference between the dream-  experience of movie-watching  and the solid, ������ heart-involving  actuality of experiencing a play.

Figuring it out took him all over  the British Isles, most of B.C.  and Alberta, cost him one-third  of every nickel he made, and  Will occupy him and his players for the next two years in  a straight commercial fight  with Hollywood in which the  public's- four-bit -pieces at the  box office will, decide?*.whethery  Canada; wants all flickers or  flickers and life.  By 1945 Syd was guest-teaching at the Banff School of Fine  Arts. He talent-scouted privately, planted ambitions. One  struck root in Ted Follwos, 19,  curly haired, smiling Winnipeg  CBC man, protege of George  Brodersen, Manitoba University  English professor. Result, Brodersen offered services and one-  third cash. Syd already had  half.  "I can run for two years without   depending   on   good   busi  ness," he said���-one answer to  the actor's heartbreak: a planless future.  The Risk plan crystallized  suddenly. Syd raised his banner in his father's house at Gibson's Landing, now workshop  and living quarters of the Everyman Theatre, repertory players  of Western Canada, when not  on tour in their "mobile bunkhouse".

SHOP by MAIL  from  Powell Stores Ltd.  Powell River, B. C.  Hie north coast's Most Modern Department Store  By ELSIE KORHONE and  BILL RAZZELL  FOR THE past week the school  has been buzzing with several  different events.  Rumours are flying and the  situation is tense. It seems that  one of our teachers, Mr. D.  Smith, has been offered a position in the Greater Victoria  School, so we're all wondering  if he is really going to leave us  after being here for quite some  time. We'll be sorry to see you  leave Mr. Smith, but we all do  want to wish you- the best of  luck possible.  On Wednesday a School Board  meeting was held in Division 1  of the school to choose the  School Board members. The in-^  spector of schools, Mr. Manning,  was also present. Tea was  served to them, on behalf of  the school, by Shirley Kirkland,  Doreen Shaw and Elsie Kor-  hone.  Those lucky kids from. Mr.  Smith's room had a nice little  game of basketball all afternoon  as their's was the room being  used by the board. How are  those sore muscles? Still like  basketball, kids?  Tod bad there isn't a wedding  here every day. There was  some excitement around the  school on Wednesday afternoon  as students were seen peering  through windows and around  corners to get glances of the  wedding of Bob Norse and Effie  Stewart. Effie, by the way, is  an ex-student of our school.  Let's wish them good luck.  That noise from your room,  Miss Wagner? So, it's for the  Christmas party on December  19 that you're practicing.

The department quotes  a leading authority, who describes health as a 'perfectly  natural and unconscious state  of mind arid, body, evident in a  sense of well-being." A healthy  person, it is pointed out, enjoys activity, has an exploratory  interest in life and is well-fitted  to stand up to adversity, to endure and to overcome difficulties, whether mental or physical.  ���r  Pender Harbour Traders Ltd.

Friday, December 6, 1946  EVERY annual report of the Columbia  Coast Mission is a reminder of a splendid service that is carried on among the  isolated settlements that dot the British  Columbia coastline for hundreds of miles.  More than forty years ago Rev. John  Antle, then rector of Holy Trinity Church  in Vancouver, decided that something  should be done to help the families living  around the rocky fastnesses of the coast.  He built the small ship Columbia and set  Other Opinions  a/  THEY DIDN'T SAY YES  (I.T.U. Typo Times)  'CANADIAN Printer and Publisher" recently  took the trouble to send out a "deadline-racing questionnaire" to dailies for comment on  the widely publicized statement of a retiring  president of the Canadian Weekly Newspapers  Assn., which said that "daily papers are afraid  tot tell the truth because of union pressure in  their own offices."  None of the 17 editors who managed to reply  before deadline of the magazine's October issue  "knew any instances of union pressure."  Typo Times previously published an editorial  of the Halifax Herald vehemently denying the  charge. Here are some excerpts from the published  comments in  "Printer and Publisher":  The British Columbian (New Westminster):  "At no time in my 35 years with the British  Columbian have I heard even the suggestion  of interference by union employees with the  printing of the news and certainly during the  past two years since I have been editor there  has been no attempt along that line."  The Halifax Herald: "At no time has the International Typographical Union interfered or  attempted to interfere with the news or editorial comment of this newspaper. There has  been no suggestion at any time that it might  interfere."  The Globe and Mail: "The charge is, an absurdity. It used to be charged that daily newspapers could not write labor's side because of  advertising pressure in their office. We are  conscious of neither union nor advertising pressure in the handling of labor or any other type  ���of news.   If it is news, we print tit."  out to minister not only to the souls but  to the bodies of the ailing in the scattered  communities. Antle of British Columbia  soon became as well known on this B.C.  coast as Grenfell of Labrador was on the  Atlantic.  The work that he started has been  carried on and expanded often against  great difficulties of service and finance.  The Columbia Mission's history is now a  saga of gallant missionary work and it  has the deep gratitude of many thousands  of beneficiaries.  Four ships and three shore hospitals  are- now operated by the mission and* the  annual reports of the work of each is  eloquent testimony to the great good that  is accomplished.  ���Vancouver Daily Province.  They Don't Mix  (Penticton Herald)  AT THE RECENT session of the Vernon fall  assizes a young; Indian faced a jury on a murder charge. After the evidence was heard, the  jury reduced the charge to manslaughter,  found the Indian guilty, and the presiding judge  sentenced him to 18 months.  A few days later, at the Kamloops assizes,  the same judge heard the same story about another Indian, charged with the murder of his  wife. Another jury reduced the charge to manslaughter, the Indian was adjudged guilty and  he was sentenced to two years less one day���  a jail rather than a penitentiary sentence.  Apart from the change of setting, the two  trials were alarmingly similar. Because the  evidence was alarmingly similar.  Both Indians escaped the capital charge, and  the noose, because they were shown to be drunk  at the time of the incident.  Two Indians lie dead; two more Indians will  serve nominal jail sentences; but the real culprits, those who supplied the liquor, remain  free to make the whole sorry process possible  again.

She said, "You will always  find lots of others who make  themselves believe they do it  all. I don't want you to become  one of these, for they all find  themselves without even a  thing. I want you to have a  lot of things always about you,  which you have really earned  by doing the most of the work  in them."  She told me if I could do  this, I would never get as tired  out as that other person who  has to convince himself of the  job he is doing. For it is always  the mind that has.to be convinced, _md they make their  minds tired by this "making  believe."  "There has been nobody yet  able to feel like working with  a tired mind, especially one  wearied from trying to believe  what it knows isn't true."       *,  How right my mother's words  were, and as right today as they  ever will be. Today we find  men standing beside thirigs they  could yput together and save  themselves. To me^ it is like  men upon an island where there  are trees, yet they stay there to  die.  In 1934-5 I happened to be in  Vancouver for the winter. You  may remember that winter,  when men were hungry and  could find no work. I had work  enough to pay expenses while  there.  I had such men as that old  one who came aboard Chack-  Chack, with tears in his eyes,  "Oh, Skipper, they tell' me that  you might be able to; put this  ring again upon this 4 rod. It's  the fish! rod 'L brought out from  England with me 42 years ago."  The next afternoon more tears  were in those old eyes, as this  man turned his fish rod end  round and round.  "It's just as it was when I  bought it, just as good. What  do I owe you for this bit of fine  work? I have the money and  am willing to pay for such fine  workmanship as this. So name  your price."  We shook hands as he, left,  for he had that price yet in his  pocket. He had paid from his  heart���thankfulness, that which  God gave  to  all mankind for  just such payments as these odd  minutes of our time.  That winter in town made  many things clearer to me, "for  I mixed with the man upon the  street, after living for' many  years away from crowded  places. I had learned how to do  things for myself, because there  is no one else to do it.  As I sailed outward that  spring, I felt quite sure that I  was going upon the right road.  I said to- that old friend who  saw me off.  "I really feel downright sorry,  but it is not sorry I am leaving  this city, but sorry that I am  unable to empty its walls of all  mankind and take them out  where they would at least be  able to learn to dig a hole into  the ground like a rabbit, to get  out of the wind and the rain,  instead of standing there waiting for someone to do it for  them."  Then, as Chack-Chack sailed  out into the Gulf and the night,  my mind told me that there  were yet good things enough to  go round. There was work  enough, clothes enough, but not  enough inen and women ready  "to do the real*big part of the  job. Rather were there too  many ready to believe - things  which were not true of their  work or themselves, so that  their minds were always tired  out, which caused the body to do  likewise, and at last become unfit for the work to be done.

From  the time that the bazaar was  officially opened by Rev. McKay, every stall and counter  seemed to be doing a real big  business. Some wonderful displays of needlework, cooking  and toy making were seen and  no doubt, did not take very long  to sell. The fishpond was well  patronized by the kiddies, arid  by the squeals of delight at the  presents being hooked, it would  be quite safe to assume they  were enjoying every dime spent.

Ed Russ stood at the door of  his cabin beside the man-ravaged alder -land at Gillies Bay.  The winter sun was warm but  it made naked the snug little  shack where Mr. Russ has lived  so many years. His words of  philosophy were direct and full  of ineaning.  A prospector and miner for  the greater part of his life, Ed  Russ came to Texada first in  1895. touching the island's soil  where the Little Billy blasts importantly today. Ed Blewett,  originator of the Van Anda Copper and Gold Company, had  told him of Texada.  His mining experience began  in '92 when he prospected in  the Cascades in Washington.  He recalls the extremely cold  nights in those high altitudes  and remembers how they made  ^ight-caps���they cut off the  legs of wool "long Johns", tied  the smaller ends with shoestrings and turned them up.  If Texada's mines could call  off the names of those who  sought to share their secrets,  Ed Russ's name would come in  the list of nearly all. He had a  hand in the development of  every major working and prospected many smaller claims besides.  At various times Mr. Russ  left Texada, returning to the  States from where he originally ,. hailed. During the years  1919 to 1929 he worked in several of the western states, applying his miners' skill to the  driving of railway tunnels and  the cutting of underground  water systems for power dams.  In 1929 Texada again drew  him north, this time to stay and  make a home for himself and  his eleven year old son. Twice a  year, in early summer and fall,  already rolled up their sleeves  and are working on plans for  the biggest and best Christmas  tree ever.  * #    *  The Britannia High School  Drama Club are working on  four plays to be presented on  December 19.

On a mainland mountain they  had a cabin which served as  their operation base. Memory  conjures a picture, says the still  ardent prospector, of the days  when he could pack 70 or 80  pounds, hike for hours in the  mountains and miss not much  around him. It is different now,  all but the spirit. In June this  year Ed Russ again went to his  beloved hills where disappointment in the form of six feet of  snow, met him at the top.  His keen observation of nature's people has built up a  fund of knowledge. Tiny birds  are regular winter visitors at  Ed Russ's door. He dreams of a  maple grove to replace the alder stumps left by loggers all  about his cabin. At the mountain retreat the tame pack rats  are an unending source of study  and interest.  In his many years of viewing  the world's progress Mr. Russ  has developed a philosophy that  might be summed up in these  words���truth without camouflage.  Wm.

VANCOUVER  Fair. 2820 or Fraser 5S12  By B.O.M.  SO THE recipe says, "Stand in  warm place and let rise",  (meaning the do-nut dough)  which I do and it doesn't. I  keep peeking in at this huge  bowl of sickening goo, and waiting patiently for the concoction  to rise. There are positively  no signs of busy little bugs and  enzymes flourishing and whatnot.  Hours go by���supper is over  and I finally trot off to badminton.   It  isn't  until  some  time  later   that   the   maddening  thought occurs to me that I've  forgotten   something   more   or  less  important.   Yipe!   Do-nuts  ���must   see   if   the   mess   has  worked itself into anything yet.  It has arisen.   So in the middle   of   the   night   I'm   going  through the second stage of db-  nut making.   You throw in an  egg, search around for the nutmeg you know you've got somewhere  in   an  orange   tin and  throw   that   in    (the   nutmeg,  never    mind    the    tin)���-more  flour, stir up the mess until it  looks like the makings for wallpaper paste, and then, oh ho,  not that.  Yes���let it stand until it rises again. Seems familiar  somehow.  So I go to bed vowing never  to make do-nuts again, even if  my husband's grandmother  makes the best in the country.  Next morning, not really expecting very much, I peek in  the vat.  Good lord, the dough has  risen above the pan, and looks  like it's going to keep right on  rising until next election. With  nothing short of amazement, I  pummel the extraordinarily  sticky dough���toss is the word  in the book, but it was so large  a mass that it would frequentr  ly splat on my face when. I  heaved it aloft, and then it sagged if you didn't catch it just  right.  However, when I hit the light  buib, my enthusiasm wears off  and I proceed to roll it out and  cut it with a do-nut cutter.  Only I don't have a do-nut cutter���a, biscuit cutter, yes���but  the machinery for cutting out  the middle hole is definitely  missing. You'd think there  would be countless things  around the house for making  small holes.' It's amazing the  number: of things I tried���top  off a whiskey bottle, bottom  of an egg cup, a hollow bead  button, and finally a thimble.  Oh joy, it worked fine. The  only thing is for the next little  while, my husband's socks will  have bits of dough sticking to  them, as the thimble is fairly  bristling with the stuff. You  have to fry the dear things in  deep fat (do-nuts not thimbles),  and I get around the lack of  lard by using a narrow deep  saucepan.  Of course, it means I only fry  three do-nuts at a time, and it  was a herculean task to do 48  of the blessed things. But finally  red of face and feverish of eye  I present my husband with one  of the masterpieces.  You could see he didn't expect much���after all, his grandmother, but I've got into that.  Anyhow, after burning himself  soundly, he inquires, "Are they  dd-nuts?' They've got a hole in  the middle."  Says I, "You'll get a hole in  the middle! Do you realize I've  spent practically all my remaining youth oh those things*  burnt myself, flying fat, etc., ad  nauseum."  And that my friends, is.how  you don't make do-nuts.  Nuts!

When the days are short, we  can not depend upon the sun's  rays as a source of vitamin D,  but health authorities point.out  that this vitamin is found in fish  liver oils, which should, be  served to compensate for the  lack of sunshine.

The men employed directly in the Mining Industry of  British Columbia eat, each year, at least:  5,000,000 lbs. of flour and cereals  4,000,000 lbs. of meat and fish  2,000,000 lbs. of potatoes  2,000,000 lbs. of vegetables  600,000 lbs. of butter  1,000,000 dozen eggs.  Add to this impressive total the food consumed by the  families of the miners and also by the people indirectly  associated with this important industry. The figures then  become almost astronomical. This huge consumer-market  means a great deal to the rancher, the farmer and the market-  gardener who supply these products. Such wholesale distribution of foods plays an important role in the economy  of this Province.

Mrs. Jay was in the  chair and Mrs. Powell took notes  as secretary of the P.T.A.  Doctor Inglis of Gibsons Landing attended and said he would  be glad of another man in the  district to help him with the  terrific amount of work, but did  not think the time was ripe at  present as the community would  have to guarantee a substantial  salary and locate a house for a  new doctor. Difficulty is to locate a house.       % .  The V.O.N. is% trying to *. get  another nurse for the district  and this should help the situation considerably, but there is  every need of another doctor as  the whole district is growing  rapidly.  It was decided to nominate a  committee from the various organizations to go into the matter  and report back in January. The  committee named was Rev.  Father Baxter, O.M.I., Fred  Archer, Mrs. Coulson and W. J.  Mayne.  * *    *  Preparations for the bazaar to  be held in the Legion Hall,  Sechelt, B.C., in aid of.the Cancer Clinic, on Thursday, Dec. 5,  are going ahead, with Mrs. Neal  of Selma Lodge at the head of  affairs.
