Barfs, a friend of 33  years standing, but new to the  harbour, gave a short resume of  his association with Mr. Dingman when he was Sports Editor  for the Vancouver Daily Province. Mr, Barrs was not surprised  to know Mr. Dingman was so  actively interested in the welfare  of the community, particularly  badminton of which he is the  founder. Many an amateur owns  his success to the encouragement  and boosts that they were given to  them by Sports'Editor, "Art Dingman". '  An enjoyable evening was  spent by all joining in a sing  song and dance. The closing song  by Mr. Dingman, "The End of a  Perfect Day", was much appreciated.

A Schoolls Only As Good  As Its Teachers  "Today more is asked of the -teacher than ever  before.

School buildings are necessary,,, equipment is required, books are indispensable, school boards must  [make plans, superintendents. and inspectors must  give leadership, but the teacher is absolutely essential in any school system.

One  day you think the; village can't  hold another soul as every place  is filled, and then it seems they  must stretch , and we've got a  few more hundred around. Well  we welcome them as it's all good  for our morale to see life pepped  up, keeps .us on our toes. It's nice  to have them all, but we do  heave a sigh of relief in the fall  when we get the place back to  ourselves again. /Somehow it!s  nice to be easy going, as we've  all got into the habit of around  here.  Easter Surprise���Got a very  nice Easter gift. Frank Campbell  called us from Wells. He is working hard up there and likes it  very much. He said at the time  he phoned it was snowing a real"  blizzard there, felt a little guilty  then complaining about our  weather here. It's been a grand  Easter day, perfect, our churches  all held their services, and were  well filled. There's somgthing  about that Easter service, that  gets everyone to Cnurch, at least  once a year. You do'get a very  virtuous feeling after you've attended church Easter Sunday, but  did you ever stop to think* that  the Churches are there every day  in the year and every Sunday?  I thihk that a great deal of the  world's troubles would be more  readily settled if we'd all turn  to God, no matter what creed  we professed. Things would nev- \  er look so black as they do these  troublesome days. Let's try it, and.  letsr try a little more of "The  Golden Rule".  Bring Your Repair Jobs to Us!
