This will be something entirely new in this traditional  community celebration, and a  large crowd, with good weather,  is anticipated.  Starving Greece  Calls for Help  WITH   UNRRA   operations   in  Greece   ended,    the    current  Canadian relief to Greece appeal  '���^provide}$li500M0'yto"Mljp play  a vital role in their health program. '  Citizens of ��� the peninsula are  asked to join with their fellow  British Columbians in contributing to this humanitarian  cause.  The plight of the people of  Greece is difficult to realize.  One million men, women and  children lost their homes and  possessions in the flames of their  burned villages which were devastated by the Nazis. Today  they live like animals in caves  and lean-to's.  The Greeks fought valiantly  on the side of the Allies to defeat the Axis. Of 7,000,000 freedom-loving Greeks, 83,700 were  casualties in action; 391,600 were  starved or executed ���- leaving  375,0Q0tv(H-phaned children.  In y addition to -two million  undernourished children, there  are 550,000 tubercular cases,  2,000,000 malaria victims, and  24,000 disabled veterans, for  whom medical supplies are  ' urgently needed.

KENNETT  BUTCHER  Next to Bank of Montreal  Gibsons   Landing  by Jack Scoff  The Shavers....  THE average man with the  average life will shave himself 16.425 times^ according to  my Handy-Dandy Home Multiplier. If he takes 15 minutes per  shave this means that he will  spend 171 days of his life standing in front of a mirror sloshing soap on his kisser and scraping it off again.  This is terrible news. I wish  I hadn't spent a whole afternoon  figuring it out.  Most men (average or not)  have a natural aversion to hacking their face to bits every  morning. There seems to be no  escape from this ritual except  to run away and be a hermit. As  far as that goes, maybe hermits  have to shave, too, to keep up  With other hermits.  POSSIBLY PAINLESS  It's quite true, of course, that  science has produced an amazing variety of articles to make  the shave as painless as possible.

But who ever heard of a  porcupine shaving.  Most medicine cabinets are  filled with doodads that are  supposed to whisk away the  stubble with the ease of a breeze  taking the fuzz off a dandelion.  Somehow it never works out  that way. The so-called-safety-  razor, in the fumbling hands of  the average shaver, is about as  safe as a Buck Rogers zap gun.  If the rest of the boys are like  me, they sit down to their  breakfast with a face that looks  like a choice cut of beef, stray  bits of toilet tissue clinging to  spots that, have been nicked. In  my own short career, I've lost  enough blood to keep 17 million mosquitoes in supplies for  the rest of their lives.  "Dueling; again?" my wife  asks, as I limp in from the combat.  LOOSE STANCE, TIGHT GRIP  According to people who  study such things, no two men  shave alike. , The results are  the same, of course, but the  technique of drawing blood  varies.  Personally, I use an overlapping grip with a loose stance,  cutting diagonally down from  the right ear, across open country for a moment and then make  a swift detour around my nose,  slicing off a slab of nostril, and  continuing on ,down under the  chin. I then pause to administer iodine, first aid and last  rites. .  I suppose a lot of shavers, like  me, look back on their first  shave with wistful regret. It  had been a doubly momentous  day for me, because that was  the first time I ever wore a  tuxedo. Actually, there wasn't  much to shave; just a slight  down like the fuzz on a peach,  but when I laid that razor to my  'face I knew I was a man.  GENTLEMEN ONLY  Throughout that evening, I  recall, I embarrassed my escort  continually by hastily leaving  our table and making for the  nook marked "Gentlemen",  where I made temporary repairs  to my wounded mug and to the  tuxedo which had a stranglehold on my neck.  The girl told me afterwards  (when we were decently married) , that she wondered all  night what strange affliction  kept her tomato - faced boy  friend on a constant run.  It's futile, I know, to argue  with the inevitable. Whether we  like it or not our faces are going  tp be shorn of their wool as  long as we have the energy to  lift a feeble hand for our razor.  But it's a thought to make the  blood run cold . . . or, at least,  what blood a man has left.  Phone Call...  VISITORS to our place in the  last couple of days have  noticed a change in our housekeeper, Beatrice.  Her usual happy smile  is a .  pale shadow of its former self.  A   little   balloon   has   formed  above her head, as in the comic  strips, saying "Gloom."  .  The story has the O. Henry  touch about it. Beatrice, you  see, listens each afternoon to the  radio quiz shows. The ones that  phone you up at your home and  pay you money if you're listening. She's been listening ever  since some radio genius got the  idea.   Nobody ever phoned.  Two days ago it happened.  The announcer's voice, coming  out of the radio at one end, ot  the room, said he was about to  make a phone call. Now he  had the receiver up. Now ne  was dialing a number .  And the phone began to ring  on the other side of our living  room/Beatrice was there in a  flash.   ;.:--.'"' \  "Are  you   listening  to your  [anaii��@s  By VIOLET SEAMAN  IT WAS an armchair that floated Jim McKimmie to shore  when the steamship Islander  struck an iceberg not far from  Juneau. The tall slim young  engineer was one of the last to  leave the ill-fatec] ship. He  vividly recalls the white moonlight, the all but submerged  berg of bluish -'icei the chill  waters that claimed the lives of  most of the passengers. Jim McKimmie relives the horrors of  the moment when he and the  mate discovered that nothing  would batter down the jammed  stateroom doors of solid teak-  wood which trapped scores of  screaming victims..  Jim left the boats soon after  that. Mines claimed his attention for the next few years. In  1899 he made his first appearance at Texada Island. At that  time he aided in the. installation  of machinery at the Cornell and  Little Billy Mines. He stayed  only a few months, but like  others who came and went,  came back to stay. After an  absence of three years he returned in'1903 and took an active  interest in various mines on the  island. .  In 1924, however, Mr. McKimmie once again undertook a new  type of work. He became assistant forest ranger, having as  his territory 'the entire, island.  At that time Pocahantas Look- ,  out, located in the northern portion of the island, was established at an altitude of about 2,400  feet. A strait winds' i^wsmd  through the firs- and cedars that  clothe Mh Pocahantas, a trail  that is sometimes mossy, but  which as the ascent grows steeper, becomes more rocky. In this  shadowed greenery the birds  and the deer grow friendly with  the forester.  Yet in the late twenties when  Jim McKimmie spent the sum- _  mer months on the lookout, and  did the rest of the island's forestry work as well, he made  almost daily trips down the  mountain   trail   and   up again.  Since 1936, there has been a  second lookout at Mount Cook  in the south. A lookout man is  stationed at each outpost from  May to  September and makes  radio, madam?"  "This is the quiz program on  CKNW. Did you hear our jackpot question, ma'am?"  But Beatrice was already  lowering the phone to its cradle,  a glazed, < incredulous look in  her eyes. "I am listening to the  quiz program on CKWX," she  said, to no one in particular.  daily reports to Mr. McKimmie  at Van Anda by telephone.  Jim remembers one fire some  years ago that started in some  dry moss near a tiny lake in the  centre of the island. Palls of  smoke darkened the sky, cinders sifted out of the stifling air.  Yet it was not altogether an ill-  wind that sent the fire over the  island. The Texada pines had  been suffering from a disease  that was turning them red as it  destroyed them. In the wake  of the fire, in due time, strong  young pines pushed their clean  shoots up and along with the  young firs, cedars and hemlocks,  today present one of the most  lush second growths in. the  province.  Buffalo Bill thought so highly  of the Baits that he once tried  to get a colony of Lithuanians  to settle on land he owned out  west.  RADIO REPAIRS  and SERVICE  W.  G.

THE CANADIAN Legion is not  satisfied with the present  housing program which they  claim is bogging down, according to a letter delivered to Hon.  C, D. Howe by Major-General  C. B. Price, Dominion president  of the legion.  The following is the text of  the letter:  "The Legion is deeply concerned over the fact that���in  spite of all expectations to the  contrary���the housing program  is bogging down.  ADVERSE FACTORS  "This situation, which was  already bad, is undoubtedly now  being rendered even more  alarming because of the recent  widely advertised decision of  the life insurance company  sponsored Housing Enterprises  of Canada Limited to quit on  many of its projected housing  developments. The reasonable  assumption is that the unfortunate example set by Housing  Enterprises of Canada, Limited,  in this respect is bound to have  a far reaching effect in discouraging others from going ahead  with projected housing developments.  "In the face of this threatening impasse, the legion would  once again respectfully urge  upon government the dire need  to realistically liberalize * the  terms of Part 1 of the National  Housing Act, so far as new living units costing $7,000 each (or  less) are concerned, in order to  encourage home ownership, thus  placing private enterprise in a  position to augment the activities of Wartime Housing Limited in coping with the problem  of providing living accommodation for many thousands of veterans in the low family income  bracket  "Under the legion proposal  the carrying charges on new  privately owned homes would  not exceed $6 per month for  each $1,000 of capital cost, i.e.  a> $5,000 living unit would not  cost over $30 per month for  amortization, interest, municipal  taxes and fire insurance. ,  "The proposal is perfectly  practicable, provided government consents to loan to eligible  borrowers, 90 per cent of actual  cost for 30 years, at a 3^_�� per  cent interest rate, which it is  assumed would involve the  elimination of the lending in  stitutions, . loans being made  directly by government as in the  case fo the Veterans' Land Act.  "In the national interest, the  legion earnestly recommends  that its proposal be given serious consideration by the government, as the soundest and  most expeditious means of  breaking the housing bottleneck."

The word kilt is derived from  the Danish word "kilte," meaning to tucl. up.  Death Makes A Partnership  With Profits!  Coast Lumbering Is the Most Dangerous Industry In  the World... the operators want to make  It More Dangerous Still!  THE FIGURES: An average of 50 to 60 B.C. woodworkers are killed each year  ... 18 lives are lost for every billion feet of lumber produced . . . Each week  in the year 1 logger is killed . . . Each day in the week 21 are injured . . . Every  year 200 are permanently crippled, 6500 suffer compensable injuries. . . . Since  1917, over 4700 woodworkers were killed, 15,500 permanently disabled, 651,-  000 \n\ured. . . . Already in 1947, 28 have been killed, several thousand injured.  ��� THE CANADIAN ARMY CASUALTY RATE FOR SIX  YEARS OF WAR WAS 10 PERCENT... THE LOGGING  INDUSTRY CASUALTY RATE DURING SIX YEARS OF  WAR WAS 200 PERCENT. ��� (Based on Workmen's  Compensation Board Figures.)  THE FACTS: Piece work and other forms of speedup accounted for the greater  percentage of this grim death toll. . . . The 1.W.A. fights to abolish speedup to  save lives, but the lumber bosses say /'No''. . . . They have rejected the shorter  working week which r^^ They refuse to grant union secur  ity which would permit better-functioning safety cow . .

A  SKILFUL  surgeon  attached  to the Birmingham Accident  Hospital  in Britain's Midlands,  carried out a very clever operation and made life worth living  again for an unfortunate workman.    This workman, who was  quite young, had the misfortune  to have all the fingers of his  right hand cut off by a machine.  Only the thumb was saved/ so  that the hand was useless and  the youngster could never apparently have  expected to  do  manual work again..    The hospital surgeon stated,  however,  that he could make the disabled  man fit again and a most.interesting operation was carried out.  He  grafted  a finger  from  the'  left hand on to the mutilated  right one and joined the tendons of this finger so skillfully  to those of the damaged hand  that the patient can use this new  finger perfectly normally.    The  whole  treatment,  including  training,   lasted   about   a   year.
