Churches  throughout Canada have lent  their sympathetic aid and will  make special announcements on  the opening day, report Fund  officials.  Primary objective of UEFB is  to provide food and other urgently needed supplies to those  Britains not receiving such gifts  from friends and relatives in  Canada. Because the Canadian,  and British governments are  co-operating in its work extensive savings amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars will  be made in the handling and  shipping of supplies., These savings will result from free ocean  .... .   p.      .  . . , _. , .. ..... ��� ,        transportation, free dockage and  - lumbia   in   recent   Dominion-wide   competitions for excellence included top winners Les handling,  free  warehousing and  Barber (right) of the Chilliwack Progress and Al Alsgard of The Powell River News.

The result, today,. is the weary  ration . system, the standing in  queues for barely enough food  for subsistence, the almost intolerable frugality of food and  dress and pleasures which surely  must tax and strain the most  persistently optimistic soul.

An executive meeting was  held on October 26, to discuss  ways and means for the annual  bazaar in Gibsons School Hall  on Wednesday,  at 2 p.m.  The Women's Institute has a  membership of 43, with an average attendance at meetings of  15.  The November Bazaar starts  the year's activities, and replenishes funds. Many calls were  made and the usual generous  donations made, to the amount  of $87.97. Clothing and utensils  were collected and shipped along with new materials purchased, to aid the' Fraser Valley  Flood Victims.  A Whist Drive for funds to  aid the crippled children at the  Solarium was well attended and  made possible the donation of  $20.00.  Through the keen interest of  Mrs. LeFeuvre, Agriculture Convenor, it was decided to sponsor  the Children's Garden Clubhand  donated funds to purchase seeds  and again towards prizes. The  response of the children was  gratifying   and   their 4 entries   at  most enjoyable picnic .was held  at the home of our life member,  Mrs. Fred Soames.

IN THE copy of your paper of  October 22nd you printed a  poem signed "Gust Hanson" of  Granite Island, Hardy Island,  B.C. This poem was not written  by me and I want to disclaim all  responsibility for it. You will  have received my wire of October 29th, asking you not . to  print this. It was sent in without  my knowing by Captain E. A.  Wehner. I did not know that it  was already in print until after  I sent you this wire. In fairness  to me I would like you to print  this  disclaimer.  G.   Hanson,  Hardy Island.  The fullest public support is  urgently needed in order that  the drab diet of grim austerity  in Britain can  be brightened.  All organizations and groups  presently engaged in sending  food to Britain are especially invited to join in the Fund's work.  They can retain their identity as  donors in this worthy cause, all  recipients being advised as to  the source  of -assistance.  The cash savings effected will,  result in more money being available to these organizations  and  groups  for  additional  gifts.  Besides the financial co-operation of organizations and groups,  the Fund welcomes individual  cash donations. All such donations will be used for bulk purchases " in Canada of food and  other supplies and shipped in  bulk to UEFB warehouses in the  United Kingdom for general  distribution to people who are  not receiving gift parcels from  Canada. This phase of the work  will be under supervision of the  British Advisory Council.

It's surely not by accident  alone, for instance, that almost  all my favorite waitresses have  mastered the delicate technique  of pouring a cup of coffee so  that the Java skills Over the  chipped rim of the cup into the  saucer. Presto! You lift cup  ;to lip ~and: the depreciation on  your tie increases 87 per cent,  it takes long experience and  careful tutoring to master this.  I've seen some beginners, for  example, who bring the cup to  you already spilled. This is  definitely crude. . The proper  method; of course, is to bring  the cup with the coffee just to  the brim so that when the customer puts in his cream he will  do the damage himself. '���  This puts the onus ��� not to  mention the coffee ��� on you,  the customer. I know that if  I were a waitress the deep satisfaction of such a sight would  be more than compensation for  the long hours of training it  must "take.    "*  Probably the chief subject in  the curriculum at this sinister  college comes under the heading of "Thumbs."  I can't find any statistics to  support a contention that the  average waitress' thumb is any  longer or more active than her  sister's, but I" suspect that  through some form of setting-  up exercises ~ perhaps before  an ;open Xyvindow hi the morn-  .,; jhgs'7^ ;tl^X"ha^pdeveIbped"  themyto prepare for ? the task  ahead.   '7,X';��� y'-^'-  It should be pointed out that  the Waitress   runs   a. constant  risk of haying her thumb bitten  by hungry Tpatrons who over-;  anxiously dip  into their  clam *  chowder   before   the   waitress  has had a chance to remove her  thumb, or on. the other handy'  there is a danger of it being  ���stabbed   when   the   impetuous  diner, plunges his fork into the  mashed potatoes7 '�� . ,  Just what' the mortality rate  on waitress* thumbs ^hiay be is  another point not cm the record,  but it's evidence of the completeness of their training that  the majority of waitresses still  possess this appendage.  '' All of these phases in preparing a young woman for such  a responsibility pale before the  most important consideration  which is, of course, how to  avoid haying your eye caught.  6ver a period of years of  enforced eating in restaurants,  I have made an exhaustive  study of the problem of catching a waitress' eye and have  observed every conceivable  type of approach, short of offering the waitress a mink coat or  a six-week cruise to Hawaii.  The average waitress is equal  .to them all.  Indeed- the technically-perfect waitress has developed the  sability7 to gaze full into a  customer's eyes without the  faintest, sign .of recognition,  although the customer may be  wildly signalling with a bottle  of ketchup, running up flags  and screaming at the top of his  voice.  .There is the type,  too, who  can   be   t,urned   around   by  v fastening a piercing, hypnotic  gaze at the back of their head  or, as we veteran customers  call it, the Yogi. Treatment.'  Sure enough, the waitress  finally looks in your - direction.  You signal with a toss of the  head and what you hope is an  ingratiating smile. Then the  waitress lowers her eyes bashfully and begins to blush.  You might just as well go  ahead and try to eat that steak  with the spoon.  THE COAST NEWS, SECHELT, B. C.  Page Three  By H. L.L.  WE ARE very sorry to bid farewell to Mr. and Mrs. F. D.  Rice who have left to take up  residence at Westview. This  popular couple have always lent  a willing hand .��� to community  endeavor, but we wish them every success for the future.  BIRTHDAY NOV. 5  Birthday congratulations for  last week go to Dr. T. Murphy  who was guest of honor at a  small dinner party on November 5.  VISITING IN  VICTORIA  Mr. and Mrs. S. McKay are  spending a few days in Victoria  and Vancouver. They flew to  the capital city.  WELCOME HOME  We extend a hearty welcome  home to Mrs. Harry Batchelor,  more familiarly known to us as  Gladys. We are glad to know she  is getting along so well. Hope  to see her cleaning up the garden  soon. Gladys wishes to thank all  who - so kindly remembered her  with flowers, cards, resets, etc.,  while she was in  hospital.  V.O.N.   STAGETTE  V.O.N, cakes and Selma Ladies  just seem to gravitate together.  Mrs. B. Lang brought back the  one from Gibsons, and at the  V.6.N. Stagette on Nov. 5, Mrs.  George Batchelor was the twice  fortunate winner, by ��taking  home not only the cake but a,  beautiful cushion as well. Eleven  ladies from Selma enjoyed the  evening and our thanks to Miss  Irvine ahd Mrs. J. Redman for  transportation. Many a good  laugh was had* throughout the  evening and it is to be hoped  there arer more such get-togethers.   '  IN VANCOUVER  Mrs. J. Redman, and Bruce  spent last week-end in Vancouver.  EXTEND  INVITATION  An invitation is ^extended to  all members .and friends of the  community to attend the tea on  the afternoon of Nov. .15 at the  home of Mrs. George Colson,  and to the regular Community  Centre meeting in the evening at  eight o'clock at the home of Mr.  and Mrs. J..

Happy to say our George Taylor was up just for the day on  Sunday visiting Mr. and Mrs. H.  Noble and he is feeling pretty  good.  Well the Club had a swell  Bingo her on Saturday. Grand  prizes npt that I brought any  home or had to be helped home  like some' lucky ones. The Sven  Anderson's won 1 electric heating pad $10, one electric iron  $15, one electric kettle $15 and  something else. Now if that isn't  luck, eh what,.but I don't care  we had scads of fun. ' Coffee,  doughnuts and cup cakes being  served after.  Sunday was the night of  nights for adults as well as  children the big Halloween  party held in the upper Club  Room, the children dressed in  lovely costumes, several winning prizes. Barbara being one,  little Brenda Rees was very very  good, dressed as Carmen Miranda. It really was a work of art  and certainly deserved getting  a prize.  Games were played, ducking  for apples, sandwiches, cakes;  cookies, milk and coffee and ice  cream were served later. Each  received a bag of candy and an  apple on leaving to go" outside to  see the fireworks display, which  was certainly enjoyed by all. On  the whole there wasn't much  damage done especially when I  hear what they did at Squamish.  Turned cars, trucks over. Pulled car wires out. Laid ties and  even telephone poles all up the  main road. Did a lot of damage  painting fences and windows red.  So I guess we were lucky over  here. So for myself and all the  other mothers and families I'd  like to give a vote of thanks to  three, months  in  Scotland.  Mrs.  Mq^vatt made.{the;v.entire tripvby ;  plane  and was^met at the airport by Mr. Mowatt. I am sure  that Mrs. Mowatt will have lots  of interesting things to tell  us.  those who worked so hard to  make the Hallowe'en party a  big success.  Well folks that's all the news  for now. I'm off to Squamish today with Alice Broomhall of the  townsite. We sure give Squamish  a treat, don't we Alice, when we  get up there together.  So cheerio folks and remember don't leave it until cold  weather to get your coal.  Reclaim 1,500 Acres  From the Sea  THE ENTERPRISE of three  farmers in Britain has reclaimed from the sea 1,500 acres for  food production. This has been  achieved by building a new  bank 6% miles long on the south  side of the Wash, in Lincoln- s  shire. This area contains some of  the most fertile land in Britain.  The remarkable aspect of this  achievement is that this has  been done in less than six  months despite very bad weather.

Breaks Speed Record  For Long Run  IN AN OUTSTANDING speed  and economy performance,  Frank Hocevar, 58 year old  hoisting engineer from Gary,  Indiana, has just completed a  Los Angeles-New York run in  a stock model British Austin  Sedan in 57 hours and 27 min- \  utes. This is believed to be a  record for stock automobiles  from coast to coast.  Mr. Hocevar, driving^ his own  automobile, averaged 53.3 miles  per hour, and averaged a phenomenal 30.6 miles per gallon of  gas for the entire trip of 3,062  miles. In August he drove the  same car from New York to  San Francisco, 3260 miles, in 64  hours.  A former dirt track racer, Mr.  Hocevar took leave of. absence  from his job with the American  Bridge Company to make the  transcontinental runs. He made  both runs by himself, without  sleep. He lost time on the first  run by stopping for food, but  this time he took with him a  gallon jug of orange juice and  six  steak sandwiches.  In his fastest cross-country  run, he left Los Angeles, near  the" Ambassador Hotel, at 12  noon, Pacific time, October 6,  and checked in at Times; Square,  New York City, October 9 at  12:27   a.m.,   Eastern   time.

I am in full accord  with these statements. The wedlock of pfice and politics has  produced scarcity as an offspring. This unholy alliance cannot spell out anything but poverty for the many, regardless  of what it may do for the few.  Why look to the aforementioned European countries. They  employ a price system mode of  operation, the same as we do.  No European ideology can solve  the problem of scarcity in the  midst of abundance. Furthermore, no political party is capable of instituting a planned economy of abundance in this area.  Make no mistake. The emotional term capitalism has not  been referred to. It is used by  those who pre-suppose that there  is a division of capital and labor. . In reality there is no such  divison. We all employ a price  system mode of distribution. No  distinction can be made between  havng wares to sell over a counter, or whether our service is  all that we have for sale. In  either case, if we are to demand  a high price a scarcity must be  maintained. That is what labor  unions   are  for.  On a national scale, it is ex-  for it.       x  C.W.N.A. business conducted  by Mr. W. E. McCartney, Managing Director, Brampton, Ont.,  stressed the fact that extensive  news items was a service, not a  dis-service to its advertisers,  and a good medium to use was  27 columns of news to 5 columns  of advertising.  Murmurs of assent were heard  when Al Alsga.rd, Puglisher of  Powell River News and The  Coast News criticized the editorials written by the publishers  of the Weeklies. He said although some were good the  majority showed little or no  time spent in thought and research in the writing of an editorial. One woman publisher was  heard to alibi that by the time  she had collected the advertising, edited news copy, covered  the meetings of numerous organizations, she didn't have time  to spend the time for a good  editorial. *  An excellent oration on "Freedom" was given by Mr. Howard  Coulter representing the Powell River Company. He declared  "There is an utterly priceless ingredient of human life called  Freedom" and a North .America  "bewildered, bedevilled and perplexed by ideologies" must learn  to evaluate and treasure it. That  is freedom of the individual.  We had many opportunities to  talk "Sechelt Peninsula" at the.  social functions where we met  executives^ and directors of well-  known organizations. Miss Allen,  a hard-working Board of Trade  member quoted the old adage���  "Which came first, the chicken  or the egg," when refering to  our need of roads and a car-  ferry, and they listened���we  hope they act!  Mrs. C. Haslam has returned  from a few days visit in Vancouver.  Mr. and Mrs. Norm Berdahl  have had the latter's aunt visit-  . ing from Chicago, and Norm's  cousin Mary Ludwig from Edmonton, Alta. During their stay-  on the coast the party including  Mrs. J. Rusk visited Victoria,  taking in the Parliament Buildings. They experenced the 74  hour gale last Tuesday, the worst  storm Victorie has suffered in  -24 years.  We wish to extend a warm  welcome and a hearty congratulation as fellow Canadian Citizens to Mr. James Szabo. of: Roberts Creek who after taking the/  Oath of Allegiance received his  Canadian Citizenship certificate  from His Honour Judge Hanna in  County Court on Nov. 6. Mrs.  Szabo accompanied her husband  with their four small children  on this- solemn but happy occasion.  pedient to maintain a favourable balance of trade. By all  means goods must be imported,  even though it does create a  scarcity at home. We have a  housing shortage while our timber is being-utilized to create _i  foreign market. irreplaceable  minerals are being exhausted  for the same reason. The mineral content of our soil is being  depleted to such an extent that  malnutrition of native born  children will result. All our resources constitute a national,  a drunken sailor. If this con-  heritage; yet we squander it like  tinues, instead of attaining a  higher position among the nations we will join the ranks of  the decadent- nations which  have  sold their  birthright.  Our exports are being used  to bolster up Fascist countries  abroad. Not only that, but in the  current conflicts both sides are  being supplied, as was done in  the last war. Lovely! Isn't it.  The odor is, anything but lovely.  Whether it is high finance or not,v  the. situation still is high. Our  resources are beng depleted in  order to settle a conflict between  two horns of a dilemma. Both  Communism and Fascism are  outmoded as regards aplicatibn  in this area.  in addition to wanton destruction of our resources there is  continued .erosion. This was  highlighted by recent flood conditions. Adequate preventative  measures were not. taken. There  was no lack of scientific information, rather there was a lack  in application of available information. What is the use of  acquiring information if nothing  is  done  about it?  You indicate that Mr.. Hinton, the Peninsula and the nation as a whole would be interested in more information.  Are you also in a position to  state, how many are willing to  investigate a scientific analysis  of the situation which confronts  us?
