Array r.*  '**"***��**��*(��*!��.'  J; THE FOLLOWING letter to the  Z-.y editor is published in the in-  \z Crests of peninsula residents  ^ who have given support and en-  ^ | oouragement to the scheme of a  ���connecting road between Powell  v|River and Vancouver.  ^Editor, Coast News.  [$ Sir���I have attended several  ij Ratepayers' meetings in ���������.West-,  ���L view and listening to views ex-  ;? pressed; there realize that the  ;l majority of opinion is in lavor  r of trying to get the provincial  I public works to open a thoroughfare from Westview to Van-,  I. couver, crossing by ferry from  VrHorseshoe Bay to Gibsons then  by road to Bender Harbour, a  distance of approximately 50  ���miles. Then by Yferry to Still-  . water and: up coast to Westview*  tji Now while this road would be  ?a great improvement to residents on the coast from Gibsons  |to POwell River, the public do  I .lot seem to be any further  ihead with it thanthey were 20  years ago. Why not get after.  ) f.omething thatWould be a great  ifcieal more beneficial and con-  [ jVenient. A road from Westview  |&to the neighborhood bf Toba In-  ] iet, a distance of about 40 miles.  {Then south to the already built  V :road along the Squamish River,  not quite 60 miles. The road  I from there is already built south  of Squamish some seven miles  and at present is under further  Construction; tp Vancouver. A  total distance from Westview to  j Vancouver by this route would  r be abbltit 150 mijes, wider foiir  hours travel by motor qar. This  ; roa<i would bj&-n# a valuable  ljc$pjitey;,y-asJ: it; would pass  ' through one of the largest and  (finest timber holdings in B.C.  ��on they upper Squamish River.  #A-logging   road   through   this  '"owftS^^  Slrii_*^:^Y.-"/^^.:^^.;^c:-\:^ .'"

This is just one of the inci-  ||dents of the war told to me by  r'a returned man.   In one of the  \ many tanks that blew up   (in  that   last   battle)   two   Of   the  j;ycrew survived.    One had a leg  blown off, the other badly burned, including all his clothing.  They were lying on the road,  ' yin the middle of en amy fire.   A  ^big  colored man, six feet tall,  | came laughing and swearing at  |th���fm.   He carried each of them  \;Out   quite  a  distance,  berating  )$hem all the way  for making  'fsuch a spectacle of themselves.  \i Then he got hit himself. He  /was a grand person, Sam. He  (kept their morale" up all the  Way. When they arrived at the  pase hospital, George (the sol-  Vlier .that told me this story)  feaid he will never forget the  (picture of the Red Cross nurse  rrunning out to meet them with  la flask.  f They each got a swig. Who  (got it first did not matter. Nurses  \ are color blind anyway. Sam  went back to Texas, where I  (hope he still can laugh, and  [keep up the family morale, and  i get all the credit he has cbm-  >. ing. He did get a much de-  !f served medal for bravery.  We are coming around collecting again this year for the Red  Cross. As you all know they  ���- are providing free blood transfusions, with the various bther  added expenses.

Social Honors  Overseas Brides  SQUAMISH���On Saturday evening, February 22, the members of the Squamish branch  of the Canadian Legion and the^  Women's Auxiliary to the  branch held a "Welcome to Canada" social evening for four  overseas brides and -their husbands. The four young couples  were Mr. and Mrs. Jack Hutton,  Mr. and Mrs. Keith Kennedy,  Mr. and Mrs. Bob Lasser and  "Mrs. Bert Jordan. Unfortunately Mr. Jordan was unable to  be present. The first three  brides mentioned all came from  England, and Mrs. Jordan's  home is in Newfoundland.  The toast to the King was  made by Mr. E. Tutin; to Mr.  arid Mrs. Kennedy by Mr. Jim  Hurren, to Mr. an$ Mrs. Hutton  by Mr. Russell Lamport; to Mr.  and Mrs. Jordan by Mr. E. Carson. Each bride $vas presented  with a silver ciga|ette case engraved "Welcome^ to Canada,"  B.E.S.L.  The evening was spent y in  playing cards,' bingo, a singsong and dancing. Lovely refreshments were served by the  members of the Ladies' Auxiliary.  >:i  By 50 Per Cent  GIBSONS LANDING���Gibsons  Lahdirig, mill rate has been  cut in half���from 20 to 10 mills  ���following increase in assess*-  ments.  Land is taxed at 100 per cent  of assessed value and improvements at 50 per cent.  A letter to the council from K.  W. Mptton of the Dominion  public works department quoted  $200 a year as the cost for lighting the new wharf for Gibsons  Landing. The council felt unable to assume this responsibility as at* present a plan is  under way to light the village a+,  strategic points. One or two  lights would be placed to light  approaches to the wharf.  Appropriation of over $300 for  fire fighting equipment was  budgeted.  Funeral Rites Held  For Willi am Weaver  LADYSMITH���Funeral services  for William Weaver, 69, who  died in Ladysmith General' Hospital, were held Monday at St.  John's Church with interment  in Ladysmith.  Born in Lancashire, England,  Mr, Weaver came to Ladysmith  in 1940 from Natal.  Besides his wife, he is survived by two daughters, Mrs.  George Nash and Mrs. Peter  McGovern of Ladysmith; a son,  Victor, at Nanaimo; eightgrand-  children and one greatgrandchild; four sisters, Mrs. Alice  Little, of Natal, Mrs. Ruth  Brewer, Vancouver, Mrs. Sarah  Zwick, Gibsons Landing, and  Mrs. Lydia Allred of Lancashire, England, and two brothers, Simon, of Natal, and  Jabez, in England.

'  Impassable Roads Disrupt  Rural Mail Service, Schools  GIBSONS LANDING ��� Rural ��� ���   ,,-, mail servicesY in this- district  " K6W b��M Ye^  passable roads.  Doctor Allan Inglis and V.O.N,  nurse Miss Margaret Forry have  given notice that only an emergency will get them ori the  roads.  Schools are disrupted.  Roberts Creek high . school  students, however, have had  their holiday cut short.  They couldn't came to school  at Gibsons Landing because road  conditions prevented buses operating, so the school board decided to send the school to them.  Classes are held in Kewpie  Camp at Roberts Creek. Miss  Pearson, high school teacher  from Gibsons Landing, takes  the first three days and Stanley  Trueman, high school principal,  the remainder of the week.  The school board felt this was  . the only solution to the problem.  There were no indications as to  when buses wouldyresume operations and 'waiting for Roberts  Creek pupils held up school  work at Gibsons.  The ride to Roberts Creek or  Sechelt is a nerve wracking trip  requiring anywhere from three  to four hours to cover a distance  normally taking 40 minutes. A  culvert on the Gower Point road  is slowly sinking.  RED CROSS RALLY  GIBSONS    LANDING ��� Red  Cross provincial president P.  S. McKergow and commissioner  Col. C. A.

Mr. Cassidy, who?is  a first aid man, treated his small  daughter for first degree burns  on the head and thijgh, and for  second degree burns on the right  arm.  Fortunately for. the youngster  the prompt treatment she received has warded off any possible complications, and she is  f reported to be progressing favorably.  Secheil Highway  To Be Gravelled  GIBSONS LANDING���Private  trucks have for a number of  days been engaged here in  hauling gravel on the worst  spots of the Sechelt Highway.  As a result of the delegation  from the Sechelt peninsula  which interviewed Hon. E. C.  Carson two weeks ago, negotiations between J. P. Veitch,  president of .the.--Gibsons Landing and District Board of Trade,  and Herbert Gargrave, M.L.A.,  and the recent visit to the peninsula of G. N. Stowe, district  engineer, foreman Arthur Pilling has received instructions to  utilize suitable available trucks  for gravelling.  Trucks of T. R. Godfrey & Co.  Ltd., Eric Inglis and Foucette  Bros, have spent a number of  days at the work in an endeavour to make the roads passable for the Sechelt Motor  transport and the school buses.  Both public conveyance systems  have had to suspend operation  for over a month.  online  Successful Event  THE VALENTINE dance sponsored by the Women's Auxiliary to the Canadian Legion  proved a most successful event.  It was held at Irvines Landing  Community Hall. February 15.  Praise and credit is due to the  players Qf the three-piece  orchestra, Mrs. J. Haddock, Mr.  J. Stewart and Mr. Roy Dagen-  stein for their fin 3 performance.  Merriment was provided during the evening, by a "broom  waltz," and a spot waltz, and  the drawing for the door prize.

The letter..'  was returned to her recently  by a French soldier who found  it weather-beaten and stained  on the battlefield.  'He thought she would like  to have it back, so mailed it to  her. The only clue he could find  where to address it to was the  ending of the letter "Your  Loving Sister, Jane" and the  abbreviated return address at  the top of the letter "Box 83,  Sechelt". Mrs. Newcombe said  it gave her quite a start to receive this tattered message of  the past, but is very grateful to  the French Sergeant for his  kindness in returning it.  Orangize Rifle Club  GIBSONS LANDING ��� Johnny  "Bertram has organized a  Junior Rifle Club here, and has  held successful practices with  his. group. The initial membership of ten is expected to increase rapidly.  Anyone who has a .22 and  who is willing to abide by the  safety regulations of the club  may join. As soon as official  targets, which are on order,  arrive, the members may begin  trying for Marksman medals.

The north coast's Most Modern Department Store  ��WB��WBg��IM'1WIUm-JW U l��U��MiUWilWmiMi|IH.MlJHJ_JlUJIPI.IIIIMIIIL-UUMI��IIU��  THE SUNDAY crowd of residents and visitors on the  Sechelt wharf this week witnessed for the first time in their  meriiory two rival passenger  vessels tied to their wharf. The  S.S. Cecilia arrived about five  o'clock in the afternoon and was  scheduled to leave at five-thirty.  The M.V. Gulf Wing of the  Gulf Lines Ltd. who newly inaugurated a passenger service  to the Sechelt; peninsula, was  also scheduled to arrive at the  same time, but due to a late  start from Vancouver she was  about 25 minutes late and arrived to ' find the S.S. Cecilia  berthed at the end of the wharf  with her bow pbrtruding about  twelve feet beyond the edge.  This made it a little difficult  for the Gulf Wing to land. She  hesitated for a few moments and  then moved astern out into the  open again and waited. There  was a feeling of suspense in the  air and the crowd was wondering what was going to happen  next. But apparently the officers on the S.S. Cecilia, H.  Roach, Master had signaled that  they would move their vessel  back out of the way and they did  so.  "It was an impressive sight to  watch the large vessel move,  slowly back and see the smaller  trim little vessel with a flag  fluttering at its mast gracefully  riding the swells and then glide  smoothly in and tie snugly to the  wharf. All this happened with  many good natured remarks  tossed at both vesels.  It might have been the rule  of the sea for one vessel to move  out of the way of another, but  to most of those who witnesed  the scene they felt it was chivalry of the sea. One bystander  said she felt a lump in her throat  as she looked on.  *  *  Now that the weather is becoming more moderate, many  young men in the district are  answering the call of logging. A  group of them from, Sechelt  have taken on a logging contract with E. & G. Logging Co.  at Toba Inlet. They left last  week bound for their new operations. The party was made  up of the following with their  families: Mr. and Mrs. Stan  Dods, Mr. and Mrs. Gus Crucil  Jr. and Mr. and Mrs. Cliff Hall-  berg. Ralph McCullouch had  moved his family to Gibsons  Landing    and    was    following  later.  *    *    *  Mrs. R. S. Hackett suffering  frorri the results of a burn on  one of her limbs, went to Vancouver Sunday last accompanied by her husband, to be under  her Doctor's care for awhile.  trict on March 7 and 8, and it is  hoped that everyone will take  advantage of this great benefit.  More details will be given in  next week's paper.  *  *  *  Mr. and Mrs. Clarke have as  their guests this week, Mrs.  Clarke's sister, Mrs. F. Thomson and her two children from  Chilliwack.  * *    *  Mr. Paul Powell underwent  an operation Friday in the St.  Paul's Hospital and latest report is that he is resting satisfactorily.  * *'.*���.���  Little Gary Hendrickson was  rushed to Vancouver Friday by  speedboat after a sudden illness.  Latest report is that he is still  quite ill.  American firms have gold  and bauxite mining concessions  in the Dominican Republic  which they will develop this  year.  ByR.  C.

The prize winners  were: Bridge���First, Gertie  Lewis; consolation, Mrs. G.  Dickie. In the men's bridge,  Elmer McKee, first, and Doug  . North, consolation. Whist, first,  Norma Adamson; consolation,  Mrs. E. Johnson. In the men's  whist, those two rivals were at  it again, Alex Thomson winning first and Rev. A. MacKay  the consolation. At the last  drive, Alex and Rev. MacKay  tossed for the first prize, Rev.  MacKay winning.  * *    * ���  Elsie Balderson had three  tables of whist on Friday evening, February 21. Everyone  enjoyed themselves immensely.  Nettie Hamilton won first prize,  Mrs. Odendahl the "booby" and  Mrs. Fleming the "lucky" prize.  * *    *  I hear from the grapevine  that Morton Adamson has increased his age by a year, so a  few friends gathered to help  him celebrate this occasion. Of  course the time came in, the  evening for Mort to cut the  lovely iced cake made by Mrs.  Agnes McDonald. Try as he  may, Mort tried three different  knives and was just thinking of  going out to the woodshed to  get the double bladed axe when  the truth came out. The cake  was a beautiful iced block of  wood.  What certain young miss is  happy and smiles again because  Johnny is back.

'...  !��� HARMONY between management and labor is  held to be the key to Canada's prosperity in  1947 by a majority of the nation's business  leaders recording their expectations in The  Financial Post's year-end opinion round-up.  Canadians-in-the-know see no logical reason  for a breakdown of our economic machine  during this new year if all-out production can  be maintained, major strikes averted.  They agree there is no sound basis for a  serious recession. Stop-and-go production in  1946 hardly scratched the surface of the mountain of demand. Except for some luxury items,  most commodities are in short supply and will  be for anywhere from six months to three years  TODAY'S  Bible  essage  &  Selected by John R. Adams  ,"Most  peopla are  bothered  by  those  passages  of  Scripture   they   don't   understand;   but   for   me   .  the  passages  that  bother  me  are   those   that   I   do  understand."���Mark  Twain.  i.  THESE SIX things doth the Lord hate: yea,  seven are an abomination unto him: A proud  look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that deviseth wicked  imaginations, feet that be swift in running to  mischief, a false witness that speaketh lies, and  he that soweth discord among brethren.  Prov. 6:16-19.  THE NIGHT is far spent, the day is at hand,  let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light..  Rom. 13:12.

My belt gave way and the six root beers  broke all over the carpet. Believe me, anybody that says root beer is a soft drink never  got hit over the head with a half a bottle of it.  Our Greatest Export Industry  FIFTEEN per cent more men than ever were  employed iri Canada's forests last year. As  wages were also higher than ever before, the  importance of forest work as a factor in the industrial activity of the year is obvious.  ��� Averaged over a long term, more export dollars are brought into Canada through the sale  jDf forest products abroad than come iri to pay^  for any other type of exports with the exception of gold. The pulp and paper industry  alone exports products worth $275,000,000 per  year,  Canada's timber lands are a "gold mine" of  national wealth. Better still, this particular  <?mine" won't run out, nor its output shrink, if  we take care of it. Its supplies after years, are  reproductive. They will reproduce themselves  year after year, if they get a fair chance.  . The demand for these products is greater  than it ever has been. It will be greater ten  years hence than it is now. Forestry experts  and lumbermen are agreed on that. There is  lib threat that substitutes will replace timber  or> wood-pulp.. The uses for tree-fibre are  multiplying. Many so-called substitutes for  building and industrial operations come from  tyood itself, or have that as their base.  V The moral is obvious to a child. Our timber  resources are too valuable to be neglected or  wasted. They are vital to the welfare and comfort, employment and prosperity, of coming  generations. There is no reason why a hundred years from now Canada may not still rank  as one of the world's chief sources of wood, and  jts forests provide work and wages for thousands of people.  |. The Dominion needs a forestry policy, scientific, positive, aggressive; aimed and directed  to perpetuate this perennial "mine" of wealth.  yY While the Dominion and the provinces are  recasting their financial relations, and discussing a clearer definition of their jurisdictional  fields attention should be given to this matter  Of putting the forests under some control which  would not exploit them for revenue by neglecting to protect and perpetuate them.  ���Edmonton Bulletin.  Most expect it will take another two years to  catch up with war-deferred demand.  There may be some sort of moderate "corrective adjustment," they say, as commodities find  their true level and as some industries return  to a straight competitive basis. But this will  be a desirable trend and should hasten a return  to normal business relations.  Workers must work to start the ball rolling;  management must find ways to cut costs and  keep prices down so the consumer can buy.  THE SIMPLE LIFE  I. ain't a snooty sort of guy,  But I've no call to be,  For life has never handed out  Her biggest plums to me.  So I can squat upon the dock  And close a sleepy eye,  And listen to the swishing waves  As ships go sailing by.  YYThe guy with lofty family tree  Must hold his head erect; ���  Must walk with pride and dignity,  For thafs what folks expect.  But me, I squat upon the dock  And watch the seagulls fly,  And listen to the swishing waves  As ships go sailing by.  'Arry 'Obbs  SAXON ELECTRICITY  H.

When they arrived in Vancouver, as deck  cargo on a freighter, they were  about the six finest yachts on  thic coast built for prominent  B.C. citizens.  That was 36 years ago. Since  then the six shapely little vessels have had many experiences  and many owners, and now one  of them which has remained on  this coast through the years is  embarking on a new phase of  her career.  She is the 60-foot ex-General  Kitchener, which proudly bore  a proud name iri Canadian army  service on this coast during  World War II. War Assets have  sold her to Lawrence Lewis of  Vancouver, and now she will  swap her grey war pait for  smart pleasure garb once more.  Her hull is sound, for teak  doesn't wear quickly.  Kitchen was built for the late  William Farrell, former head of  B.C. Telephone Co., and father  of Gordon Farrell.

Page Five  By MAISIE DEVXTT  *-\  WHENEVER anybody mentions sewing clubs, the remark is usually accompanied by an involuntary snicker. The general  opinion being that the weekly session is merely a gossip-swap and  gab-fest. There is of course some truth in this, and I've been  guilty myself of kidding the gals. I once wrote a little bit of  doggerel called "The Absent Member", in which the luckless  .female is depicted as being thoroughly torn to pieces, by her���er���  friends, and ended with the pious thought:  "I'll fortify with vitamins  From January to December  So I may keep my health and strength  And never be the absent member."  Needless to state, I got a good raking over the coals for being  such a traitor to the cause���but aw shucks���I was only kidding.  I don't know how we'd have any social life at all, if it wasn't for  our sewing clubs���and incidentally we DO sew���so there!  "What do you do anyway?" queries the inquisitive male.   Do  we ask what goes on in their lodges or unions?   Wouldn't do us  much  good,  would  it?   But���oh���well���just  to   still  their  more  lurid fancies, I'll describe a typical meeting:  ORDER IN THE COURT  The session is supposed to be opened, formally, but nobody  pays any attention to my pathetic attempts to be heard. I don't  have a gavel, and my voice isn't very loud, and I'm not a very  forceful character anyway, so finally I just give up and add my  small note to the'.general babel. Somebody tells a joke���quit  leering���it wasn't that kind of a joke. Somebody else offers a  choice bit of gossip which is thoroughly dissected. Much indignation is expressed over some recent price-raises���the worst being  a certain make of shortening at 48 cents a pound, and which  everyone agreed they were going to manage without. The talk  veered to old-age pensions, and much disappointment was  expressed that a seemingly practical scheme for adequate pensions  had been discarded. It was felt that somebody should tell Mr.  Hart the facts of life, these being that board and room for a single  man is not obtainable for less than $40 a month, so how is a  married pensioner with a dependent wife supposed to keep a  household on $35. You tell us, Mr. Hart.  REFRESHMENTS  Mmm���the high spot pf the evening approaches. Usually  refreshments are limited to one kind of sandwich, and one cake.  But tonight we are bidding farewell to one of our nicest members  who is leaving soon to live in Vancouver. So the festive board  groans beneath a luscious chocolate cake, cupcakes and tarts piled  high with whipped cream, and big dishes of ice cream. Now  youyknowyw^  Our secretary presents the departing member with a, small  gift, accompanied by a gracious speech expressing; our regret for  her loss, and our best wishes for much* happiness in her new  home. And with many goodbyes the sewing club breaks up for  another week.  So you see, despite the wild and woolly imaginings of you  men, our sewing clubs are just what they're supposed to be.

TOWN  OPICS  by ADAM  THE BOOKIES down in the  Holly woods, being nature's  gentlemen, will lay odds on  practically anything. Now they  have come up with figures on  the Oscar Derby. Awards are  due in March and the odds are  three to one that the award for  the best movie of the year will  go to one of the following:  "Duel In The Suh," "Best Years  of Our Lives," or "The Jolson  Story." They saiy six to five on  Jennifer' Jones for her role in  "Duel" to be named best actress  and nine to five for Jimmy  Stewart for his work in "It's a  Wonderful Life." Having seen  none of these pix, we wouldn't  like to say which will come out  on top. Searching back in our  memory (quite a chore) to find  what we liked the best we'd say  it would be hard to choose and  nobody would agree with us.  That being the case we'd like to  present a few fig-leaves (especially to Dotty Lamour . . . she  could use 'em). Anyone who  likes double features can leave  ���now.  . The best dramatic picture  we'd say was "Leave Her to  Heaven,"  with "Anna and the  King of Siam" right behind. The  best musical   (if there is  such  a thing) was "Night and Day,"  with   "Blue   Skies"   very,   very  close.    As to the best comedy,  we like "The Road to Utopia."  And for the best actress we'd  say   Gene   Tierney   in   "Leave  Her", while we thought the best  actor was Mark Stevens in "The  Dark Corner."   On t'other hand  for the worst display of acting  ability we would unqualifyingly  give a snake hiss to June Ally-  son on the distaff side and Van  Johnson on the male side.   Incidentally we do like Van���very  probably he can act, but they  don't give him1 a chance.    His  performance  in   "Week-end   at  the Waldorf" was trying���to the  audience.       Incidentally     the  script of that particular effort  was   based   on   Vicki   Baum's  "Grand  Hotel"   (which  was   a  grand film back  in the  early  thirties)  but bore as much resemblance to the original as a  two-day sojourn at the Avenue  Lodge does to a real week-end  at the Waldorf.    Perhaps that  was the fault of the scripters.  Seems they were the same two  who almost ruined the careers  of two promising actors named  Cagney and O'Brien in an opus  called "Boy Meets Girl" ...  they followed up with "Three  Men on a Horse." This was bet-  ter���at least the horse was good.  PHILOSOPHY DEPT.  Every kiss has a crimson lining.

A great new civilian Blood Transfusion Service has been opened by  the Canadian Red Cross to provide  whole blood and plasma, FREE . . ;  not even a Hospital Service charge,  to every hospital patient in Canada  in need of a blood transfusion.

During a  school board meeting on February 7, at which Mr. Manning  was present, it was decided that  the teachers from H.S.U.S.  should go up to Roberts on certain days in their own turn so  that some of the lost time may  be made up. During the week  Miss Pearson and Mr. Trueman  have spent time at the Creek.  Our guidance. classes are  always made more interesting  when we can have a speaker  explain to us his own particu-.  lar trade. Last week we were  fortunate to have Mr. Lang, our  village pharmacist, come to the  school to speak to us on pharmacy and its job openings. We  want to extend our sincere  thanks to you Mr. Lang for giving up your valuable time.  Films were also shown during  the week by Mr. Trueman. One  was on Macbeth; the other on  engineering.  The second in the series on  Macbeth was heard over the air  on Friday by the High School.  This runs in with the course of  studies to give a more clear  understanding of the subject.  The students of Miss Wagner's  room have started on an interesting hobby of leather work.  The results seem to be quite  nice so far.

T. James,  president of Vananda Mining  Co. Ltd. announces.  Five of the six holes drilled  from the first diamond drill  set-up, which was to the hanging wall of the west ore zone,  got eight ore intersections averaging a little more than 10 feet  and with grades better than  mine average.  From the second diamond  drill set-up 260 feet south, three  holes have been drilled, but  assay returns have been received from only two. Core  lengths of ore interested in  these two holes are 18 and 39  feet and the grade is appreciably  better than mine average.  A good width of mineralization is reported in the third hole  drilled midway between the  first two. Results below the  level are reported satisfactory.  No further drilling below "the  level is contemplated at this  time.  MARCH RATION  BOOK CALENDAR  March 6 :��� Sugar-Preserves,  S43; Meat, M75.  March 13���Butter, B44; Meat,  M76.

There is a world shortage caused  by the destruction of the sugar  industry in the Philippines ahd  in Java, which meant a decline  in total world production of  about four million tons per year.  Sugar continues to be rationed  for one reason only���because it  is in short supply. For some  time past the world has been  consuming sugar faster than it  has been produced, eating into  the reserve stocks.  As regards Canada's beet  sugar, there has been a considerable increase in its production.  In 1945 Canada produced about  20 million pounds more than the  pre-war average, and now some  160 million pounds of beet sugar  is produced annually in Canada,  which is less than one fifth Of  our needs. Even to get this beet  sugar calls for government subsidy. To assist domestic production it was announced on  February 7 that the subsidy on  the 1947 sugar beet crop would  be raised to- $1.25 per hundred  pounds, as compared with the  .60% cents paid on the 1946 crop.  Yours very truly,  RONALD KENVYN,  Field  Representative,  Information   Branch.  GIBSONS LANDING ��� Two  films on TB X-ray and what  is being done to care for TB cases  were shown by H.
