MARC*_ANT    ;  THIS week I will continue on  with   history   of   Sechelt   irif.  dians, pertaining to their schools.

"Take this pair of  hair clippers, for instance."  "What's wrong with the hair  clippers?" I asked.   r  "There's nothing wrong with  the hair clippers," he replied.  "It's the thought behind" the:  clippers that annoys me.

In our total trade with the world we are in  a good position but not in that part which is done with U.S. dollar countries.  Other countries with whom we-do business cannot pay us in full, either in  cash Or in goods, for the things they buy from us.  This situation is made more serious than ever before because so many  countries, our regular customers, have not recovered from the war. It may  be somes time yet before they get on their feet sufficiently to help put  things right. Meantime, we must find ways and means of balancing pui*  ^wn books andireducihg'our U.S. dollar deficit.  there are two things we can do at the moment... cut down unnecessary  purchases from the U.S. dollar area and increase our production of goods  that can be sold to those countries to balance accounts.
