Array FOLLOWING is the itinerary  for the showing of a number  of filriis by ihs National Film  Board representative in coast  communities:  Irvines Landing, Sunday,  March 9, at 2 p.m.  Halfmoon Bay, Sunday, March  9, at 8 p.m.  Sechelt, Monday, March 10, at  8 p.m., and in the schools Tuesday, March 11. ;  ^ Roberts Creek, Tuesday,  March 11, at 8 p.m., and in the  schools, W^dijesday,  March  12.  Gibsons ^Landing, Monday,  March 17. It is expected that  the film illustrating how easy  it is to be X-rayed will also be  presented.  Canada's ne-vv Citizenship Act,  which enables us to  call ourselves   "Canadian  citizens"   for  the first time, has made most of  us do some thinking about just  what citizenship means., >���:. What  responsibility have we for theY  way other ;countries^regardyCan-v  ada?   Who is to blahie if racial  and    religious    prejudice    are  found here?   How can the average Canadian contribute tor. his-  country's    industrial    develop- >?  ment and farhiihjg prosperity?  The films on this program  have been especially chosen to  suggest a few answers to these  questions. "Everyman's World,"  the Yfeatured iijhi, explains the  importance of each citizen playing ; an active part in choosing  the statesmen who will represent Canada among the United  Nations. "The House I Live In"  drives home, the need for everyone to take a courageous stand  against all kinds of prejudice or  discrimination if our nation is  to be really united. "PowerJFrom  Shipsaw" shows us citizens contributing to build Canada's��in-*  dustrial might. In "Old MacDonald Had aFarm"* we see  some of the methods by which  farmers can;maintain the high  production standard which has  won Canada the gratitude of  millions whose own countries  cannot produce enough food.  EVERYMAN'S WORLD  This film describes the great  variety of skills, religions and  n a t i o n a 1 backgrounds found  among Canada's twelve million  people. How such different  groups have achieved national  unity is explained by the secretary of state, Paul Martin, who  is shown addressing a number of  new Canadians on Canadian  traditions and ideals. Political  rights and dutiesy in this country are demonstrated in scenes  -**&  ���-*:  Serving a Progressive and Growing  Area pn^ B. C.'s Southern Coast. ??

Colson at the meeting last Wednesday/ and showed^ that 7,500  pieces .consisting pi dressings,  bandages, etc., had been sent  to Vancouver, and that $377 had  been raised. This money is being' used for the purchasing of  equipment for the Vancouver  clihie. Y  Mrs. Colson thanked Mrs. Neal  for organizing the group and  for the use of her home every  week, arid also Miss Ann Millar  for doing the secretarial work.  ItYwas hoped by all present'that  vtli6y meetings; would be resumed  ag&in in they ea^rly" .fell.  of   an   average   citizen   taking  part in election activities.  THE HOUSE I LIVE IN  Frank Sinatra, the popular  American singer, made this film  tb teach youngsters that racial  ��� and religious prejudice is not  only cruel but stupid. He reminds us that during the war  people of all religions worked  together successfully to defeat  the Nazis, and stresses that we  are only harming ourselves and  our country if we refuse to cooperate 'with fellow-citizens who  go to a different church.  POWER FROM SHIPSAW  The Saguenay River in Quebec Js -atjnsh. source ^fYpov^ei^y  Tnif tfie sKill'Vricf Iiiar$fw6ricof -  many Canadians were necessary  to harness it for the use of industry.   This film shows us the  great   dam   and  power   station  built at Shipsaw, and the famous  aluminum plant for which the.  Saguenay provides electricity.  OLD MacDONALD  HAD A FARM  Angus MacDonald, a farmer  who is just about to give up his  farm because he can't run it  himself without help, is the star  of this film. We see how he discovers a dozen or more ways to  make better use of the mechanical power he already has in his  tractor, and realizes that by reorganizing his work and pooling  special equipment --with his  neighbors he can run his farm  after all.

The travelling clinic  is how on the Peninsula.  Free X-Rays for TB  d  p  erect in reninsuia  i  Can Shop, Do Housework  While Washing Clothes  TRULY; a boon to busy house-  . wives is the new "Beatty  automatic,"; a smooth-looking,  counter-height washing ma-.  chine, approximately 36 inches  high by 24 inches square, finished in white enamel and trimmed in satin-finish chrome.  The new'-Beatty Washer will  soon be oh display at Sunset  Hardware, Gibsons Landing.*  From 22 to 30 minutes is all  the time required by this wonder machine to thoroughly  wash, rinse and damp dry the  ten pounds of clothes which is  its capacity. Following the  operation, the washer proceeds  to clean itself and shut off automatically.  Y In washing, the sphere oscillates 144 times a minute, providing a fast, swishing motion of  soapy water through the  clothes lasting from one to nine  minutes, depending on the type  of fabric and amount of soil.  The turbulent washing action  created by the large rubber agitator, which extends right across  the bottom of the washing  sphere, is< accelerated by two  large flexible rubber hands  which reach down from the top.  Immediately after the washing is finished. Beatty's new  "overflow-ririse-process" begins.  The oscillating action of the  washing sphere continues during the rinse cycle, keeping dirt  andscum suspended in moving  water and preventing them  from settling back on clothes.  ''''Dirty water overflows out from  the perforated top of the wash-  ingy sphere while suds (continue  in action. "Because washing  action does not stop and because  water is drained off the top and  not downward, soil and soap are  not redeposited on clothes.  THE HOWE Sound early detection campaign, part of a prov-r  ince-wide continuous antituberculosis drive, commenced  this week at Britannia Beach  and Woodfibre, and will continue for three weeks at main  centres on the sound. Points to  be ^included in the survey are  Squamish, Sechelt, Gibsons  Landing and Roberts Creek.  Until * portable or "knock-  clown" X-ray equipment was  received this year, mass X-raying was virtually impossible  .here, because of the great  weight and bulk of the mobile  units which have been used in  B.C. for the past three years.  This equipment was first used  at University of B.C. during  February when some 7,000  students and faculty members  were examined.- This model is  the very latest in Canada, and  uses 70 mm. roll film with a  picture-taking rate of 100 persons an hour. Cost of the  equipment was $14,000, borne  entirely from funds raised in  the annual Christmas Seal sale.  Technicians with the unit are  William Osborne and Bert  Johnson.  Harold C. Huggins, educational director, Christmas Seal  office,' Vancouver, returning  from an organizational trip, reported keen interest in the work  at all points, y He felt that the  fine community effort which  was forthcoming was a sure indication that the project would  be 100 per cent successful.   Mr.  Huggins   reminded   the   people  that the most important section  of any TB program today was  the willing co-operation of the  public; y He particularly mentioned the \��ork of the Cana--  dian Legion at Gibsons Landing  GIBSONS LANDING-���Suggestion that the word "Landing"  be dropped from the formal  title of Gibsons Landing met  with general approval at the  council meeting of the Board  of Trade here last week. Further discussion is planned before taking the matter to the  public and later to the authorities. It was pointed out that  the short form is at present i��"  almost universal use anyway.  At the board's general meeting on March 17 in the United  Church Hall it is planned to  bring the council up to full .  strength and attempt a general  reorganization, the latter to be  in co-operation with Sechelt,  Halfmoon Bay and Pender Harr  bour members. It is expected-  that two boards of trade may  develop from this effort, or at  least a sub-council, in an attempt to properly service the  scattered area, the nature of  which has made close co-ordination very difficult between cen-r  tres. For this reason a fuil  turnout of members is urged at  the meeting on March 17.  arid the board of~tr^deat-Sqiia-  mish, organizations which are  sponsoring the survey at these  points. He was also impressed  with the reception that both  labor and management gave, the  program at both Britannia ,  Beach and Woodfibre. Healfc^  is something, he said, which  there seems to be full agreement  on between the unions and the  companies.  The X-ray is offered entirely  free of charge to all persons over  14. Every person X-rayed will  receive a report of the examination within about two weeks.  The.program is under direction  of the local medical health  officers at all points, who are  working in co-operation with-  the division of TB control, department of health and welfare,  THE QOAST News was today  advised that the area between  west Howe Sound and Pender  Harbour has been honored by  being chosen as the locale for a  film depicting the early travels  of National Film Board representatives through the district,  when they travelled many difficult and weary miles establishing a circuit for the showing  pf educational films.  Starting March 9 at Pender  Harbour, two National Film  Board members from Ottawa,  acqompanied by a cameraman  and full movie equipment, will  start the filming- of local shots.  Some of these called for in the  script include shots of audience  discussion groups; the necessity  of slow and difficult steamer,  fishboat, and auto travel over  the scattered area.  Because of its close co-oper-  the past months of its existence,  The Coast News is being honored with the apearance of publisher E. W. P. Pearson in ye^  sequence depicting the study d^  material appearing in The Coast  News.  When the film is completed it  will receive a feature showing in  the peninsula area, in addition  to its circuit all over the Dominion.  -,;.*  VIUOIOIA  AHvaen nvioMiAOHd Page Two  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B..C...

As Roberts  Creek students have not yet  come down to school, Miss Pearson and Mr. Trueman have again  been out there in their turn to  help the students along. In the  meantime the teacher remaining with the high school has had  a double load. (Should give you  a holiday.)  . With this "good old" spring  weather taking a look in we  may get some results. (???)  The grader was back on the  roads trying to smooth it out,  so see you next week, Roberts!!  The X-ray unit of the Tuberculosis Society has planned on  another survey trip to Gibsons  between March 11-13, at which  time everyone is hoped to be  X-rayed, especially the students  here from school. Last week  we were fortunate to have a  speaker at the school whose  topic was TB and the importance of X-rays. ^TFilnJS on TB''  were also shown later to the  students.  The electricity is ajgairi playing tricks on us. The showing  of films to the junior high school  was cut short by the break in  the electricity. Basketball and  badminton as well at P.T. in the  hall have been discontinued  until the lights come on again.  ACTIVITY CARDS  A student's council meeting  was held in the school last  week. It was decided that the  pricfe of activity cards from now  on would be fifty cents instead  of the seventy-five. These may  be purchased by consulting  members of the council. A  school party was also suggested  for March 14, by the council.  Ten dollars is to be given to  House B for party plans. Mr.  Elliott has promised the school  record player to provide music.  Another new Red Cross organization has been drawn up  in the school from" Mr. Elliott's  room. President is Les.

Food for Study  INTEREST in studies and a  child's progress at school, may  well depend in large measure  upon the sufficiency of the lunch  provided. This is the declaration of nutrition authorities;  who urge parents to see that  school lunches are adequate and  sustaining.  A good lunch for a school-age  child, according to the experts,  should include at least milk,  meat or meat alternate, whole  wheat or Canada Approved  bread, and a fruit or vegetable.  Proper diet will give the child  a better chance to compete with  others on an equal footing, in  classroom, as well as on playground.  Vancouver on Sunday were Mr.  and  Ttilrs.  J.

Mill  3i!!!l  0NE OF THE greatest. tasks confronting the  nation at the present time is the maintenance  Of national health. One of the most serious  diseases, and at the same time one of the most  seadily curable when found in its early stages,  ijs tuberculosis.  ��� It is to the credit of many local organizations  and committees, working in close co-operation  with the official TB program, that every person  lairoughout the main centres of Howe Sound,  Over the age of 14, may take precautionary  Measures against this insidious disease, by having a free chest X-ray examination within the  next few weeks.  ��� Until equipment using small films was developed, mass surveys were impractical and  <*ostly. Chest clinics had to be confined to  known cases and those suspected of having TB.  As a result not more than one in five persons  suffering from tuberculosis was discovered  <uitil it had progressed to serious stages. Now  this danger can be averted. Found in time, and  properly treated at once, tuberculosis can be  Cured and the possibility of passing it on to  others overcome.  ��� More persons in the age group 15 to 45 die  from TB than from all other infectious diseases  combined. This is largely because an affected  person may go on for some time not at all aware  that the infection has been contracted or that  disease is developing.  Any one of us can be attacked by this disease and at any time. The old belief that those  over 30 are no longer susceptible is entirely  Without foundation. Helping in the task of  destroying this enemy of man is a duty that  belongs to us all. The surest way of doing  this is by having an X-ray.  GOD, WHO at sundry times and in divers  manners spake in times past unto the fathers  by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken  unto us by His Son, whom He hath appointed  heir of all things, by whom also He made the  worlds; who being the brightness of His glory,  and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power,  when He had by Himself purged bur sins, sat  down on the right hand of the Majesty on high.  And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid  the foundation of the earth; and the heavens  are the works of Thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax  old as doth a garment; and as a vesture shalt  Thou fold them up, and they shall be changed:  but Thou art the same, and Thy years shall not  fail.���Hebrews 1:1-3,10-12.
