Page Three  Describes Life in  THE FOLLOWING despatch was  ';. written frbrii Chefoo School at  the China Island Mission at Ku-  -ling, Kiangsi, China, by Dr. Robert Pearce, who is a medical  rnissionary there at the present  time.  *      (Continued from Last Week)  I spent a year but three .weeks  in Paoning. It has been an experience for which I thank God.  His direction of our lives, i am  convinced, is not just a theoretical concept, but a reliable' reality.  The Hospital at Paoning is not  large���50; odd beds���but since it  ^serves alone a large thickly populated area, there is no lack of  work.   Nor is there any lack of  f  problems! There are' big ones  and little ones, some acute and  some chronic. Each proved an  opportunity to see God work in  answer to our prayers.-  But the work is -not all probr  lerris. We were a big happy staff  living and working together with  a common ami. The medical work  was interesting. There was quite  a lot of wartime surgery because  banditry is common. Some of the  tropical diseases I had not previously had opportunity to see.  The evangelistic work was prosecuted continuously, each one  of us taking an active,part.  The people listened very readily to the message we had to give.  Not a few came right through to  the point of throwing over idol  y/brship, arid' finding peace "with  ��aM^MBOHHMa~<IM��MaaMM---_aPW  God through faith in the Lord  Jesus Christ. To see this change  is more .gratifying than to see a  life snatched back from the jaws  of death by medical means. The  brie is a change for eternity, arid  the other but a temporary restoration.  A great number of changes oc-  cured during the year. It seemed hardly a month would pass  without some important member  of the staff being replaced. The  retirement of the Chinese Principal of the Nursing School,  shortly after my arrival, made  the biggest stir. For a time it  seemed that the School would  fail. The Nursing School is a new  venture, and is enveloped with a  cloud of its own particular problems. But it is still going on.  Our new Principal is a well trained Chinese nurse, the daughter  of the late vicar of Paoning.  For  K  HON. E. T. KENNEY. MINISTER  B.C. FOREST SERVICE  Department of Lands and Forests  C.  D.  ORCHARD. DEPUTY MINISTER  the greater part of the year three  Chinese dbctors iiaye.been working with us. They were keen  Christians and did good work.  Two were war refugees and desired to return, home. The third  was On leave of absence from the  Wesi China University and was  recalled to his post as a teacher  of bacteriology. These three left  during September arid October,  arid I remained as the only doctor.  We had hoped that Dr. Armstrong would have joined us from  England in September. But he  was held up for lack of shipping.  I was somewhat appalled at being left alone. But the Lord  never failed to fulfill His promise to grant strength according  to the daily need.  The prospect of being left alone  was frightening, but in retrospect  I cannot but thank God for the  experience. One incident stands  out in my memory. The first outpatient that came to me after I  was left alone was a man with  extensive tuberculous* disease in  the glands of the neck. The condition required feurgical intervention. The operation itself can  be difficult enough, but having  no qualified anaesthetist made it  formidable.  Yet I felt that this man's coming was the Lord's challenge.  There are no accidents in life.  This man had. come in the purpose of God. So I admitted him,  coirirnittirig the matter to the  Lord, I dug around hi my memory  for a method of irijectirig the  nerves in the neck to obtain an  anaesthetic. It is a method I used  in Kansu six or seven years ago,  but I felt sure that my hand had  lost its cunning! One either gets  perfect anaesthesia in a conscious  patient or none at all! But this  time it worked well.  The man returned to the ward  alive with a course set fair for  recovery. .All went well, and he  left the hospital three weeks later-  iri good condition. But that was  not all. God's compassion is not  just spent upon our physical well  being. His purpose would not  have been fulfilled had we acted on that assumption. Through  the ministry of the .Hospital  Chaplain this man came to know  of the love of God for his soul,  and of the atonement for sin  which He has already accomplished for us.  He foresook his idols and turned to worship with thanksgiving  his Creator and Saviour. My admitting this man was not a bold  gamble that turned out well. If  we seek to follow God's leading,  life ceases to be a string of fortuitous events. We see God moving  forward   in  an  orderly  tri  umphal sequence.   It is  good to  be in the train.  I could tell you of other patients like this, some quite dra-  iriatic, and others perhaps commonplace, but time, space, arid  printer's ink do not allow! Soriie  of you I know pray About this  work. Take courage, and rejoice, because through your prayers the Evil One is being overcome, and the Kingdom of God;  extended. ^J  How is the evangelistic work  prosecuted? We do not offer discounts on patient's bills if they  will profess conversion, ijjor do  we offer better treatrrienf. We  do not "tout for patronage", hbr  seek to persuade folk to embrace  a foreign religion, as being a better one than their fathers.  We come to tell the truth.  Briefly the approach is most frequently along this line: There  is a God that created and sustains the universe and all* arorind  us. His eternal power arid Godhead may be understood by the  things that are made. If we do  not acknowledge and worship oUr  Creator, we rebel against Him.  One sin leads to another and so*  the whole world lieth in sin. The  Lord Jesus Christ was God manifest in the flesh.   .  Through Him we learn of the  love of God . towards us. It is  He who through His death, stood  in our place, took away our sin,  that we might be acceptable with  God.  I wasn't relieved of my responsibilities in Paong. until nearly  the end of March. I travelled  north, first by carrier, and then  by motor truck to the rail head  at Paochijin Shensi. Four changes  of train took me across China  and south to Shanghai.

PHONE SECHELT 5S Page Four  .THE COAST NEWS, SECHELT, B, C._  Friday, June 4,  1948  THE OLD HOWLAND HOUSE  leen  Just over 100 years ago an American came to Canada, made his  fortune, and built his home in an  area on. the outskirts of Islington,  just west of Toronto. To-day, his  farm, one full day's Journey from  Toronto, is the site of Canada's  most modern housing development.  And it says something for the architectural ideas of 19th century  builders that the old home is not  incongruous with its surroundings  when set among the modern homes  of Canada's newest village. Its  black asphalt-shingled roof, applied for fire protection purposes by  the present owners, maintains the  dignity of the past and at the same  time gives the old home a modern  touch for its modern setting.  The American, William Howland,  came from New York State and firmly established himself first in lumber  and then in the milling business. He  was knighted by the British Crown,  becoming Sir William Pearce How-  Hnd^ and .then was named Lieuten-  nr.t-Governor of Ontario.  As a builder, Sir William built  well, and possibly because of his  association with the lumber business  built walls, partitions, and even the  drive shed at the rear, of 1 x 6 pure  white pine laid flat, one on top of  the other with the edges staggered  to form a plasterbond.  For one hundred years the house  remained practically untouched.  Even to-day the main structure is  still sound. And when Marshall Foss  bought the farm for his Thorncrest  village development little renovation was needed. Apart from providing the new asphalt roof, the  only other act of modernization was  the extension of a terrace in front  and at each end.  Stately oaks which dot the  property were probably planted  when the house was started, for  experts have declared them to be  just about 100 years old. An apple  orchard contains species no longer  identifiable which were probably  planted when, the old house was  still very, young.  And now, with its new roof, the  home "seems set to withstand  another century of time. It is being  retained as a show place���a part of  Thorncrest village, and its builder,  . the real founder of Thorncrest village, will have his name perpetuated  in one of the winding roads of the  development which has been given  the name of "Sir William's Lane".  By MALDY THOMAS  A big Teen Town dance was  held May 14 and a large crowd  turned out, including a group of  children from Roberts Greek,  who had chartered the school  bus.  Jack Norris was our master of  ceremonies and he really kept  things hopping. First he made  Wee Gee and Betty Brown have  a pie-eating contest. They both  had to get down on to their kriees  with their hands behind their  backs and go to work. Wee Gee  was going along nicely until his  big brother shoved his face in the  pie. Then Betty disgustedly  threw pie and all at Jack. It  seems there was more pie on the  faces than in their tummies.  Bob Calder and Doreen Shaw  won prizes as best dancers on the  floor. Doreen received a bracelet  and Bob a lighter.  ������'������".  Sechelt's Teen    Town    Mayor  Earle Gray was down, and everyone was glad to see him.

If you have had no experience  on long hikes, make it a point to  go with someone who has.  Be careful when chopping bg  axe. Do not swing it .until you  are sure you are clear of overhanging branches or obstructions*  Keep your feet well back when  chopping and keep your mind on  what you are doing. Never chojy  with one hand.  Do not be afraid to test out*  your own theories . . . Develop  ���your own ingenuity and self-  reliance.  Plan your trips well in advance and always take more  food than you think will be necessary.  When travelling off trails, look  back frequently, fixing in mind  the appearance of the country  and bearing of objects so the return route will seem familiar.  Marking the return trail is alright, but you may miss the  marks. Be able to recognize unmarked objects when see from  the reverse approach. The so-  called "sense of location" is  mainly the habit of observing  these things both in large and  in small detail. Train yourself  to make these observations.  If lost, avoid panic and hurry.  Believe your compass and map.  Think and go slowly. Remember  the relation of downhill and uphill, and the stream courses, to  your objective. If you have to  give it up, stop in a conspicuous  place and stay stopped so search  will not be wasted. Build a fire,  making it smoke by day and  bright by night, and await relief. Always have dry matches.  ���; w- .V_t   ..*���������'  CORRECTION  Last week's issue of the Coast  News carried an error which  calls for correction and an apology to Fred Mills, well-known  Sechelt resident.  It was claimed that two American tourists, W. Morrison and  Jim Parker recently caught 31  trout in Sakinaw Lake, Pender  Harbour. The fishing party did-  catch the fish, but it did not in-;  elude Jim Parker and it did include Fred Mills, who is in the  business of guiding tourists and'  hunters. Judging from the SakX  inaw Lake catch, the best way-  for a tourist to fish would be withj  Fred Mills as guide. ]  SPEND THE     ������*  SUMMER  at  WAKEFIELD  Always Cool, Comfy,  Clean  A. L.

Mrs. Pearce and the children  were not able to reach Shanghai  until January. When I arrived I  found that they had settled in to  the new routine of school life. It  is with the school that we expect to find our work during the  next few years, so I ought to give  you a brief account of this institution.  The, school was founded by  Hudson Taylor about 60 years  ago, that the children of our mission might be educated under  conditions as near like home as  possible. Provision was also  made to take other children,  whose parents worked in other  missions, or were doing business  in China. The school has earned  a very fine reputation, and was  recognized as one of the leading  public schools (I use the term in  its English sense) out east.  When war broke out, both staff  and the scholars not on holiday  were interned by the Japaliese.  School work was continued in  camp, and quite a number of the  children were able to pass their  senior Oxford exams. The need  for a school for our children was  met by starting afresh at Kiating  in Szechwan.   A group gathered  K=  Bring Your Repair Jobs to Us!

Later these were  evacuated by air to India, and  settled in Kalimpong in the Hiiri-  alayas. In the summer of 19|6  the school moved ajg_iih to Shanghai where it has been accbinmo-  dated  in  the Mission  buildings.  When I reached here inApril  there were about 60 children- iii  schobl. We felt very crowded;  Now we have grown to 100, arid  feel more crowded still. Next  term we expect 118 to gather!  Chefoo has recently been evacuated by the Reds. But the school  buildings are not fit for habitation, x  One has been gutted by fire,  and all the others stripped of  equipment, doors, windows and  all such necessary parts. Before  the school can return there a  great deal of rebuilding must be  done. Just now (Dec., 1947) we  are making another temporary  move. This time we are to occupy the old American school at  Kuling in Kiahgsi. This is a very  beautiful mountain summer resort in central China. V7e are indeed fortunate in having obtained the lease of these premises  for three years.  Things are gradually returning  to nbrrhal in the school. The staff  as well as the scholars have had  to gather afresh. But the policy,  and the traditions of the school  are unchanged. That is why the  name "Chefoo School" is being  kept up, irrespective of our temporary locations.  Mrs. Pearce and I are respbh-  sible for the medical work of tlje  school. There is quite a.lot to do.  There are of course sick children and epidemics from time  to time, but the bulk of the time  we are concerned to observe and  care for the growth and health  of the children. In Kuling we  not be able to call oh put-  medical help to any emeriti  and so added responsit)flity itests  upon iis. During the past year^  besides the nursing care of the  children" Mrs. Pearce has taken  k" share in the matron's work���  that is doing the things a mother  does for the children.  I have helped "a little with  teaching to tide over aXshortage  until the science and niaths folks  had all arrived. The ciiildren  have .settled in well and are enjoying their new school life. They  have not been able to live with  us this past year because of our  cramped accommodation,but we  expect to be more together iri  ICuIing.

Races took up the rest of the  morning, and judging of children's fancy costumes and decorated bicycles* A recess was then  held for lunch, ladies of the PTA  attending to refreshments, hot  dogs and soft drinks, which were  consumed by old and young alike.  At 3.30 a softball game between  juniors of the school and Port  Mellon was staged. At about the  fourth inning I wouldn't have  given very much for our boys'  chances, the score was 10-2, and  then the boys settled down and  came back with a bang, playing  some very nice ball'. . . Jackie  Nestman pitched for Gibsons,  Chuck Kane for Port Mellon, and  the final score was 19-10 in favor  of Gibsons.
