Business arising out of the minutes included a report by Mr.  Trueman on the dental clinic  we had been hoping for. It appears that we are no nearer the  goal than we were.  The local dentist is too busy to  undertake a program of providing dental services to all the  schools in the district. We cannot  get a dentist to come in for this  work now because of a scarcity  of dental surgeons all over the  province.  x&k&iv*i__ffi__aistelv It-WnraJvaWp' e(^ expression of ;thfe face char- various improvements needed m  .

C._  Jrriday, Nov. 26, 1948  UEFB Closes  Drive Dec. 5  SIXTEEN communities throughout B. C. have put their wholehearted support behind the United Emergency Fund for Britain's  drive for funds to bring brightness to. drab tables of ration-  weary Britain.  Women's organizations are  playing an increasingly important role in this work and fund  officials, at B.C. headquarters,  report donations are coming in  in increasing volume. The fund  closes its cash raising drive December 5, therefore it is emphasized, all contributions should be  made as quickly as possible. Fullest support of your local organization is imperative, they state.  Cash donations will be used to  purchase food and other supplies  at preferential rates, obtainable  only through bulk J purchasing,  and to place such supplies in the  hands of needy people in Britain.  It is intended later to purchase  textiles in Canada which will be  available to organizations wishing to fabricate garments and bed  linen.  Supplies will be assembled at  UEFB warehouses located at Atlantic and Pacific ports and at  strategic points throughout Canada. These warehouses have been  placed at the disposal of UEFB  free of charge by Federal, provincial and municipal authorities  and will be maintained by voluntary staff supplied by co-operating agencies.  All shipments will be sent to  Britain free of ocean freight  which will be paid by the British  government.  The British Ministry of Food  has undertaken to pay all dock  handling charges and inland  freight to large warehouses located at Derby, a city in the central midland region of Britain.  These warehouses have also^een  provided free of charge by the  British government and placed at  the exclusive disposal of the  UEFB.  The warehouses in Britain are  being supervised by Canadian  personnel. Once the food and  other supplies have arrived at  the warehouses, the whole operation of distribution is the responsibility of the UEFB, with the  full but uncontrolled cooperation  of the British government.  Bulk supplies will be broken  down and prepared for shipment ���  by road or rail to institutions and  well established welfare organizations which are capable of distributing to individual needy recipients.  The cost* of inland freight to  individual welfare organizations,  located anywhere in the British  Isles, will be paid by the British  government.  The UEFB British advisory  council will be responsible for advising the UEFB in Canada on  the types of supplies required and  foi; allocating, such supplies as  they'become available. All the  members of the advisory council  are well known for their great  experience in welfare work and  donors are assured, that their  cash donations will provide the  m^st needed supplies and that  the$esupplies will be diistributed  rs. A. McRae  To Represent  Squamish Schoo  SQUAMISH���Mrs. A. McRae was  elected to serve as Squamish  school representative during 1949.  The annual school meeting recommended increased accommodation for students to relieve serious overcrowding.  It also urged the purchase of a:  teachers' dwelling. Mrs. McRae  said the school board had already considered supplying additional school space, but was waiting completion of the Squamish-  Britannia Highway.  Britannia may send 15 high  school students to Squamish if  transportation can be arranged.  These pupils are at present attending school at the mine, ap-.  proximately 2,000 feet up the- hill.

Would you Venture a guess, who  this couple might be,  I'll tell you. the secret, it's Gertie and me."  -A rather interested visitor was  up for a day trip last week. It  was one of the worst days we  have had this year, but he still  was interested. I don't suppose  anyone around these parts knows  him, but here's the story. Over  40 years ago, he was at a picnic  on the Walker estate in connection with the Independent Order  of Oddfellows. The return fare  was a dollar on the U.S.Sx Co.  (quite a change from nowadays).  He purchased some propekt_y  "further up the Coast (a resort  by the way) for a few dollars,  which he later sold ,because of  his wife's ill-health. The profit  was very small, but now from  all accounts, its a million dollar  concern. I believe he will return in a short time and spend  a few months in this area. His  name, Mr. J. Kettleman.  Here's a warning* notice to  those who wish to attend tfte  "Musicale" .sponsored by the  local V.O.N The program is  shaping up splendidly and although it has not been rounded  out "properly as yet, I can say,  that we have at least five persons who will tickle the ivories,  one way or another. Several  young instrumentalists,' and a  couple of elocutionists," as well  as seven or eight vocalists will  take part. Oh, and don't forget.  That's the night of the draw for  the Christmas Cake.  And now to wind up my journalist venture with- the Coast  News (first in the field) I would  like to put some of my thoughts  before you, regarding a matter  of postage for Old Country parcels.  The U.E.F.B., as far as I have  learned, is a splendid organization, and are making,really fine  contributions to our stout-hearted friends across the sea in  Britain. This is a cause worthy  of our greatest co-operation in an  endeavor to show our appreciation of their ^ splendid sacrifice  during those dark days ^from  sd9394and on^n&^extej^ea^  task they have setf themselves  to accomplish the job of reconstruction, and stabilization of  their country's trade and currency. Many of you readers are  intimate with the workings of  the U.E.F.B., and their ultimate  goal.  But many have also received  the news oi their work too late  to take advantage of it this year.  It was only through the medium  of this paper, that the writer  learned of what was taking place,  and there are many, others. Here  is one case, let's call her Mrs. X,  from Wilsons Creek. It is quite  true. She dispatched several parcels of food discriminately chosen,,. and quite valuable. A check  up of the whole business;^ reveled the cost amounting^ to the  astonishing sum of about x $30,  Mrs. X sang and laughed as she  happily wrapped~rthose precious  parcels, tripped "light-heartedly  down to the post-office. Yes she  really was helping, someone in  Britain. Some she:" knew, and  some she knew, of,r and they at  least would be happy also, for  a while. She hummed a tune as  she, and her frJJe&d, placed the  parcels on the post office counter.  Yes sir, a grand^tb(>ught, sending  parcels. Then eameHthe jolt. How  much please? .xEJeven dollars  odd. Wow, just^��oi^he privilege  of sending a fgw��|goods to some  poor needy soul, a^iew thousand  miles away. And ojar government  asked us to doXfJUs. Ministers  preach it from^e. pulpit, organizations beg pj^gu to do this,  the newspapers f^fil you down  to it, friends teUJ&s about it, on  the street. Som��_Jimes I wonder  strange things^ but try to keep  my .balance, mentally, what between contributions to our various organizations. :. during the  year, three per C^nt sales tax,  compulsory hos^it^l insurance,  income tax, 25-!Tper cent tax on  a bottle of beer,- and heaven  "only knows whatyjpercentage the  post office is charging for* parcels.  of news, which may interest our  readers. Please drop a line to the  office at Sechelt, qp leave a note  in Box "R" addressed to Robbie,  and I will be very glad to tell  you all you wish to know. In the  meantime, so long, and thanks  for the assistance.  White electric sewing machine,  cabinet style, reconditioned,  $125.00. Chesterfield, 3-piece  Suite, like new, $75.00. Phone  Lucken 15-J, Wilson Creek.  The question^ isi^vhy does the  government tr^lb drain the  pockets *of the -^working class,  when they are trying to do such  a splendid service.;. Also, if the  U.E.F.B. can take your parcels,  ship them oven^s,;. deliver them  to the respecti^e~;trecipients, all  for free, why in^e name of fortune, can we not^et a cheaper  rate? From thr p"bstal departments. I would riot call it a racket as some do,-. X because the  dictionary doeS'^not define the  word to my satisfaction. But it's a  sad state of affairs, "when some of  the ships leaving bur ports, have  available cargd space, which  could be used for such a purpose,  whilst we, Mr. and Mrs. John  Public, have tor shell out so many  precious ducats an order to help  feed our less fortunate man.  However, leJJ^ps not take  away any of ther]*6odriess which  the U.E.F.B. ma$:<io, if they can  do it free, gqig^luck to them.  I point out thelma^ter of postage  \with the same^^ning7of pur-  ^e^ri^poiii^^  of a marker for;Mission Point,  also, first aid ^tiipment, ambulance and the ?life belts on the  wharf. Hoping that; someone will  take over from here. And now in  conclusion, may:>7_- ask, if any  person interested enough in this  paper "The C5c&_5t?News" (first  in the field) willi^undertake the  job of corresp$ijde^t or try your  hand  at writingXuie  odd piece  . . xxiX   SechelMlarf  airs  .-���V-ffiiM .   ��.

And thou, child, shalt be  called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before-  the face of the Lord to prepare,  His \vays; to give, knowledge *of  ^Ivation^^  remission, of their;,sinsg.throjugh  the tender mercy of bur Gbd;7  whereby the day*���spring from  pn high hath visited us, to give  light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death  to guide our feet into the way of*  peace.

NATIONAL SAFETY COUNCIL  .-m p^x BUY  ���  Newsprint Output  InlS47Was  4M0AOOTpns  CANADIAN newsprint production in 1947, amounting to  4,447,000 tohs, far exceeded that  for any previous year. This was  over 300,000 tons higher than in  1946, more than 1,250,000 tons  higher than the average for the  war years _ 1940-45, and nearly  1,500,000 tons higher than the  average for the prewar years  1935-39.  This expansion wsa created in  response to demand, niainly firom  United States publishers. 7 It ii?  estimated that production in  1948 will amount to 4,575,000  tons, while the forecast for 1949  is 4,675,000 tons.  Since 1930, sonly one- new mill  has been built in Canada, and  only one new machine has been  installed, this haying replaced  an old one. Between 1920 and  1935, the cost of a newsprint  mill was estimated at between  $20,000 and $35,000 per daily  ton.  Today, it is estimated at between $75,000 and $80,000 per  daily ton, to which" must be  added woodlands expenditures  on a scale unknown twenty-  years ago. A single newsprint,  machine which could have been  installed in 1930 for $2,000,000  would today cost $4,500,000.   .  After many years of pulp  wood supply problems,' present  conditions are nowv generally  satisfactory. Production in the  1947-48 cutting season; was the  largest in history, amounting to  11,100,000 cords in the Canadian  area east of the Rodky Mounf  tains for consumption'��� by pulp^  and paper companies.^  An increase of 19 per cent  over   1946^47   is    attributed    to  erans club at^nijiarbour to take  part in popjft^r "club night."
