NESBITT  ' VICTORIA      (Special     to     The  News)���Department of Health  finds it's a "tough    job    getting,  doctors to go into public health  work and become medical health  officers in outlying areas.  . The trouble is, of pourse, that  . the Government pays these men  li only about $5,000  a    year    and  j that's chicken feed compared to  I what most doctors ca*n make in  [ a year in a city or town.  COCKTAIL BARS SLATED  Sessional topics are commencing to Jine up: margarine will  be a good lively sounding-off  point; so will liquor and cocktail bars and the alleged bread  combine. So will votes for Japanese and labor matters. M.L.A.'s  dearly love to argue about topics that are contentious.  In that way they get better  publicity through the country.  The government, to date, however, hasn't shown any signs of  legislation.  Speaking of publicity, Finance^  Minister Anscomb, who wants to  be  Premier,   is showing himself  quite  good  at   getting    in     the  news whenever he can.  Not long ago the P.G.E. board  of directors* held a-meeting and.  decided to purchase some new  equipment. P.G.E. . president  John Hart was out of town, so  the announcement was made, not  by Premier Johnson, who is also  a- director, but by Mr. Anscomb.  It was a small, relatively unimportant matter, but it shows Mr.  Johnson is perhaps top shy and  doesn't realize the importance  of keeping his name before the  public. Mr. Anscomb. does. All  good politicians do. They believe  that there's only one thing worse  than being talked about and  that's not being talked about.  SCARED TO DEATH  Victoria badly needs another  liquor store, but the (government is so scared to deatfi of the  drys that it .closes its eyes,,to-,the  queues' and" the crowds; and the  general unpleasantness of shopping in the two that are already  iri Victoria. X    X     x  .Victoria 20 years ago had two  liquor stores: today, with the  population doubled there are  still two, although in outlying  Esquimalt there is one. However,  the Liquor.

EGMONT  By   JEAN  JEFFRIES  Congratulations, to Mr.v and  Mi;s. Ray'- Johnson of Universal  Logging, in Salmon Arm, who  are the proud parents of a baby  boy, born in Vancouver General  Hospital.  ���   A  number- of   local  residents  were in  Vancouver  doing  their  shopping   recently,   and   among  them I noticed Mr. and Mrs. C.  r Silvey and and son Bruce, Miss  X Grace Silvey,  Harry Page, Mrs.  ���   R.

Met Carola while bumping along in the bus from Sechelt the  other day.  Had a very nice chat  in between the jolts. I had heard  _   lots about the  condition  of the  roads, and now I know it's true'.  (Ed.   Note���Sorry,   Jean,   that  this one arrived too late for the  December 23 issue.: However, we  like it and hope you will keep up  .7 the good work. .  Why Repeat Mistakes . . . in repairing these roads  THE "Christmas Present received by the residents of the Peninsula in the form of temporary repairs to the roads is being questioned.  The Department's employee's have commenced once again to use the gravel from the  Porpoise Bay pit on the Sechelt road. This so-  called gravel has already proven to be useless  for the purpose. The same material,has been  used from time to time on the road here and  has just as promptly been washed off in the  first good rain.  Now the question is: why, when there is  better material available, use that which has  already proven useless?  True, while the present weather holds, the  aotholes will be temporarily filled up, but the  weatherman cannot guarantee any indefinite  period of this same brand, nor do we wish for  any more of it.  1^��___LIJ.C�� Constitution   . . . a covenant of communism  FULL  OF sound  and    fury    and    signifying  nothing v beyond a stream of vilification  against the concepts of law and order, Harold  Pritchett, czar of the national council of the  Woodworkers Industrial Union of Canada,  at a recent meeting in Westview, launched a  scathing attack upon everything from private  enterprise to IWA policy.  And as the war of words and picket line  politics continues to rage between the IWA  and the newly-spawned WIUC, the air has  become filled with charges, counter-charges,  lies .ind slander until the real issue has tended  to become confused in the minds of many.  TBut perhaps the key to the jig-saw lies in  the constitution of the WIUC itself, which is  a beautiful piece of work filled with fine  phrases, with no mention of. a secret ballot  and with carefully worded counter phrases  which allow the executive enough room to do  practically anything at all.   -���  Section one, article one, for example, under the heading "Duties of Officers" has this  significant little phrase when outlining the  duties of the. president..  "Between conventions the president shall  interpret the meaning of the constitution, but  his interpretation shall be subject to approval  of the executive board."  The executive board* itself is made up of  the president, the^ first, second and third vice-  presidents and the secretary-treasurer, plus  three" trustees.        >  ' Thus all the top command can never be  out-voted rib; matter what happens.  .^XSection 4our, ,,artic^,4our, points out that  all real estate owned or acquired by. the union  or reverting to it shall be held, in the name of  the president, vice-presidents and the secretary-treasurer as trustees.  But it is in the preamble to the constitution that the real meaning of what is going to  happen shows itself.  It very clearly, states that the union is in  politics. The word "combined' suggests  strongly that monies received by the union  cari be used for political purposes. ���  The important part of the preamble, beginning at section three, reads as follows:  The  Open  Letter  Perfume  salesgirl   to   blonde:  "Just, a  word   of  advice.  Don't  use this   stuff  il   you're  bluffing." ...      ���    ":  7?f_-  ''''/m   CO  khobwlu-n ih<- .a'.ur comes o.r a  pX   Si::-) a f-.-rt-w t.Vmir-rii t.'is.

Attorney-General,  MY DEAR GORDIE���Margarine, old 'boy. I  have just read the paper. It seems that you  have dug up some provincial statute which  keeps B.C. margarineless, regardless of the  Supreme Court decision. Incidentally, what's  supreme about the Supreme Court? Don't ans7  wer that; I will. It's the Privy Council. Leave  out the Council, and I'm with you.  Now, niirid you, I still prefer butter. Possibly  because I was brought up with a bunch of  cows, and there's a certain loyalty due even to  cows. No one could say that a pound of margarine had a mother. But, here's the rub, who's  to say what I eat? I'm all in favour of the  only > Pure Foods arid Drugs Act by which my taxes  _____ prevent riie from.eating anything too old and  rotten, but beyond that, no. If I want to live  entirely off peanut butter, well, why not?  Probably send me nutty, but that's my affair.  Incidentally, why wasn't peanut butter banned  along with margarine? Much the same stuff.  One has been deodorized, that's all.  Besides, we're paying plenty for a pound of  butter, and if the farnier isn't getting his  share, he's stupider than I thought. And, Gordie, just because you made the federal Dairy  Industries Act to apply in B.C., when they  banned margarine, theft you can (and must)  just as simply make the sale of it legal again,  v For your information, I bought the stuff  under an alias (the stuff not me)\ nearly two  months ago. They called it Sweet Mayonnaise.  Sounds like a song title or a polite oath, but it  "3���Recognition of the need  for  combining the economic struggle for wages and con-  - ditions with the political struggle for the general rights of labor and of the people.  "4���Affirmation of international working  class solidarity, and the hand of fraternal  friendship to all sections of labor whose aims  fulfil the best interests of the working people.  ���>_ "5���An uncompromising stand on the side  of the forces fighting for peace, while recognizing there can be no, lasting peace so long  as hunger and want are found among the  working people.  "6���A conviction that the future belongs  to the working class: that'final victory is  certain for all those who toil and fight so that  mankind may be free from all exploitation.  "To these ends we pledge our fullest devotion.  "There can be no defeat for the workers  of the* world!"  There, it seems, is the crux: that if the  Communists were barred from unions this  WIUC at least could carry on the struggle.  It is sharply indicative of difficulty which  would attend any attempt to destroy communism by legislation.  But as the attempts to wreck the IWA lead  to their inevitable conclusion, desperation in  the ranks of the WIUC executive will no  doubt .foster as much disorder as possible.  But- it seems illogical that organized  .labor will allow a small group of Communists  to intimidate the workers and destroy an established union by treating their phoney political picket lines with-the. respect which only  a legitimate picket line merits, since respect  for picket lines set up by workers in an industry in a trade union fight with an employer is a fundamental principle of the labor  movement, and is a cherished  privilege.  So not having the membership or the integrity to recognize the trade union procedures, the WIUC bosses will undoubtedly follow the pattern of the political and spiritual  leaders by creating as much confusion and  chaos as possible.  And all the time we thought Dr. Goebbels  was dead!  was the same old spread that we used to get  in the Old Country under the name of oleo.  All of which makes the whole affair that much  stupider.  Enough. Quit being red-tapey, and put the  stuff on sale. Or, if it wasn't red tape, quit -  playing to the National Dairy Council gallery.  If the Supreme Court of Canada says it is  legal, that's good enough for me. I repeat, I  don't like it much, but then I'm not very.fond  of macaroni, but that's no reasoning for banning it. It is a wonder that the local spaghetti  growers haven't been lobbying for a ban on  the macadarone/  And a pound of margarine to Senator Euler  and Jimmy Sinclair, the naughty boys, forcing the poor old government into such a nasty  position.  If you can't get butter, margarine is butter  than nothing. Wow.  Yours, Zeno.  Bible Message  Selected by John R. Adams  "Most people are bothered by those passages of  Scripture they don't understand; but for me . . .  the passages that bother me are those that I do  understand."���Mark Twain.  THY MERCY, O Lord, is in the heavens; and  Thy faithfulness' reacheth unto the clouds.  Thy righteousness is like the great mountains;  Thy judgments are a great deep: O Lord, Thou  preservest man and beast. How excellent is  Thy loving kindness, O God! therefore the  children of men put their trust under the shadow of Thy wings. They shall be abundantly  satisfied with the fatness of Thy house; and  Thou shalt make them drink of the river of  Thy pleasures. For with Thee is the fountain  of life: in Thy light shall we see light. O continue Thy loving kindness unto them that know  Thee; and Thy righteousness to the upright in  heart.

PSALM 16: 11  Objects to High  Price ol Wood  Editor, The Coast News  SIR���I wonder how many people like myself strongly object to  paying from $12 to $14 per cord  for wood delivered?  Wood by the cord in Vancouver is approximately $7.50. Then  why should we be forced to pay  such a high price here?  The delivered wood here as far  as I can see is no better than the  $7.50 wood in Vancouver.    -  Since when did the price of  wood rise from $8 to $12 per cord  in this  district?  This is one item we should not  pay freight charges  for.  Is there not a controller for the  price of wood by the cord, such  as there is feu: other fuels?  Can some one give me some  information on this?  CONSTANCE   HARPER  Half Moon Bay  Who Really Rules  The Nation?  . Sechelt, "B.C.  Editor, The Coast News  SIR���Sub ject: Who   are  the  Real  Rulers of the Nation?  Submitted herewith is a quotation from The Technocracy Digest:  "In United States and Canada  we have a dollar democracy. Our  politicians largely represent millions of dollars instead of millions of people. This means, of  course, that we have a plutocracy  instead of a democracy. The cor-  ��� porate owners of wealth are the  real rulers of the nation.  "In the Technate, the few will  no longer rule the many through  money power or political lobbies.  The removal of money and politics and the establishment of a  physical democracy of distribution will, for the first time in history, give every adult citizen on  this continent an equal voice in  what he or she will have. Then���  and only then���will all the people be the real rulers of the nation."    .  This quotation is worthy of  consideration by your readers. -  In reply to enquiries and comments which have, been made  about Technocracy, information  can be obtained from the Technocracy Digest.

Pattullo, the stout-hearted old Liberal, who could still be  Premier of British Columbia if  he hadn't refused to coalesce  with his old political enemies,  the Conservatives, back in 1941  dropped in to wish his Press Gallery colleagues a happy New  Year the other day.  He and former Premier John  Hart are the only two honorary  life members of the Gallery.  This entitles them to full privileges. Mr. Pattullo, after 18 days  in hospital, looked fit as a fiddle, rosy of cheek, keen of mind,  acutely interested in the problems of the day, as immaculately  dressed as in the day when he-  greeted King George VI and  Queen Elizabeth and President  and Mrs. Franklin "Roosevelt.  This year, says Mr. Pattullo,  should be an interesting one politically, what with a federal general election and most likely a  provincial one too. Page Four  THE COAST NEWS, SECHELT, B.C.  Friday,   Jan.   7,   1949  SECHELT  By "ARIES"  Well���the holidays have come  and gone and I am sure we have  all made some wonderful resolutions.  I would like to thank the Coast  News for their kind remembrance  of me at Christmas. It was so  totally unexpected and so all the  more enjoyed and so for my part  I must try to do better this year.  One thing, I must try and get  this old typewriter rejuvenated.  I'm sure that long suffering proof  reader must be wearing magnifying glasses by this time.  So "thanks Boss"! we will do  better in future. We* have enjoyed working with Miss Allen  at Sechelt office. We know" sometimes we are a headache, being  late with the news but she takes  it all in her stride and to her  I say many thanks for help received.  One resolution we would like to  see kept by our readers in this  New Year: "Resolved that I will  buy my copy of The Coast News  and not snitch my neighbors."

Mrs. Lydia Ross and daughter  Mrs. Jay and two grandchildren  Ditty and Merrylee spent the  Christmas holidays with Mr. and  Mrs. Donald Ross and the twins  in Vancouver. The latter are now  of an age when Christmas was  very much enjoyed, last year  they were two small to understand what it was all about.  Mr. Bob Hackett spent the holidays with his parents, Mr. and  Mrs. R. S. Hackett. and had as  his guests Mr. Hugh Buckley and  Mr. Paul Buckley. Also seen in  Sechelt as guests of Mr. and Mrs.  W. J.

Ticknor all the way from  Miami, Manitoba. They left Winnipeg on December 7, arrived^  here well in time for Christmas,  all the way by bus and a wonderful way to travel, no car to  bother with and able to see the  country.  The Senior Ticknors are very  much in love >with the beauties  of Porpoise Bay area and by that  I mean the scenery.  Visiting the Deanes here for  the Christmas festivities were  Mrs. J. Deane of Vancouver and  Mrs. Dorothy Gee of Vancouver  and Miss Kitty Ouston recently  from Surrey, England, and your  humble scribe.

Speaking of bright days I had  a wonderful time doing a spot  of bird watching during the  Christmas holidays and my cats  are very sporting too. They sit  and watch also as they are very  well fed they apparently do not  feel the urge to kill? birds. Definitely night-hunters as the dead  rats found in the morning will  testify. Mr. Lawrence and Mr.  Jack Nelson have had to come  to my rescue more than once to  remove the carcasses of rats from  the porch.

Music during the evening was  provided by Mr. Brooker and  Mr. Cook. A very pleasant little incident occurred when the  guests gathered around Mrs.  Frederickson and sang "She's a  Jolly Good Fellow." X  Mrs. Frederickson has been  very ill and it was quite an effort  to get downstairs, and all felt  pleased to see her there. Hope it  will be soon that she will be fully  recovered; she has been so kind  to so many of us ahd we do wish  her well.  Also here was Mr. Clarence  Thompson who was at one time  a business associate of Mr. Herbert Stockwell.

Poteet and Mr.  and Mrs.. T. Smith and Judy and  Edna have been called to Red  Deer, Alberta, where Mr. Salstrom, the father of Mrs. Poteet  and Mrs.,Smith, passed away recently. It was thought that Mr.  Salstrom was improving in his  health as was reported in this  column earlier. However, he had  a relapse. May we extend our  deepest sympathy to those bereaved.  Here for the holiday from Half  Moon Bay, visiting Mr. and Mrs..  Guy Powell were Mr. Jim Powell, brother of Guy and Mrs. L.  Mills. .   ..    ���  Here from loco is Miss Audrey  Martin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  Frank Martin and niece of Mrs.  W. McKissock, with whom she is  staying.  There has been lots of discussion in various meetings regarding the need of a large community hall or auditorium and Mr.  John Ellis, school principal, had  outlined a splendid plan to enable us, the general public, to do  something about it. Apparently  the matter has been shelved, as  we hear only a whisper once in  a while regarding the building,  but we would think that after  the last annual school concert on  December 16 where people  were herded together like sheep,  when there was ��� such an attendance that many had to stand  at the back, including many mothers with children in arms, now  is the time to start. It was a  wonderful concert and the children and school staff worked  very hard to make it a success,  but having to use such an unsuitable hall makes it very difficult for all concerned.* Chairman  and master of ceremonies for the  evening was Mr. Bob Cook, who  is very, good at this sort of thing,  and his interest in the-.affairs  of the school is very much appreciated in the district. After a  short address by Mr. John Ellis  the program got under way.  There were no individual numbers but the various rooms had  their special items and of these  the following should have-spec-  ial mention:  A Day at School, Mrs. Jay's  room; Christmas Breakfast/Miss  Krausert's room; The Crow Song,  Miss Turner's room; The Shock  of His Life, Mr: Ellis' room; The  Square Danqe, Miss - Melvin's  room. (  This last item was so well received that the' hope has been  expressed that perhaps "in the  near future the children may be  able io carry on these traditional  dances under the direction of  Miss Melvin.  She certainly is a very capable  dancing teacher and it.would be  really worthwhile for the younger element to know how to do  these dances correctly. Mr. H. VW.

We were happy to greet at the  Christmas season Phyllis Clayton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E.  S. Clayton, who was here for the  holidays. Phyllis, a local girl, is.  now teaching at North Bend and  likes it very much. Also visiting  were Miss Muriel and Miss Violet Potts, sisters of Mrs. Clayton.  Sorry to hear that Mr.' E. .S.  Clayton, store manager for Union Steamships, suffered a nasty  fall and broke his ribs. We sincerely hope he will soon be around again, for we miss his most  pleasant smile in the store.  Little David Parrish was quite  ill during the holidays. We hear  he is getting along very nicely  now, though. Also Diana Pearson is much better, as well as  Joan Mottishaw.

THEY. SAY that in this world  you pay for your 'sins. I have  been "wondering at the terrific  amount of sins we on the B.C.  Coast must have if we are paying in the very inclement weather and storms that now besiege us. On Gambier Isle we  have been virtually snow bound.  The phone line went down and  our trails were blocked by the  giants of the forest brought down  by wind and snow. We have dug  ourselves- out of our difficulties  and have repaired our phone  line but. we are now waiting to  get the first welcome ring that  the line on the mainland is restored and that we again have  telephone communication. Last  ..week I payed a tribute to Harry  Wynn and his wife for the service given. My conscience  smites me for I should have added Fred Feeney and the other  lads who keep communication  going when the way is hard and  rough. It must be a real tough  job these days.,  I am hoping that this letter  will reach the Coast News in  time for the last issue of the  old Year. So a happy New Year  to all. 0  On New Year's Eve. we will  be holding our annual New Year's  Eve party that is if the weather  allows us to travel. Last year  we had a good turn out and we  hope to equal or. do fetter this  year. We also expect to see  many members and friends at the  Veterans Memorial Hall on New  Year's Day. Many members from  the mainland have indicated  their intention of coming. So let's  hope the weather holds out.  Being the end of the old year  there is no real news. Just the  jottings of an old soldier. News  consists of the past, the present  and the future. The past has  gone and has already been dealt  with, the present being storm  "bound has no news but the inclement weather, the future we  write about in the weeks to  come. So obviously it is time to  wish you all good luck and lay  down my pen. Again a ha^py  New Year.  Ed. Note: This���like Egmont's  column was too late to meet the  Xmas deadline. However the  good wishes are just as welcome  now.  CHRISTMAS SERVICE  A Christmas service was held  in the United Church on December 19. The heavy snowfall  prevented lots of people from  getting there. The service was  conducted by Mr. Ross Connal  and the church was suitably decorated.

A prosperous and healthy New  Year is our wish for 1949 to our  many friends and readers of the  Coast News.  desperately to catch up on things  that have been left undone for  so long a time. This is most likely one of our New Year's resolutions or at least should be.  During this returning period  to every day normal life we will  need time to relax. At this time  here are few selections of music  that will enable you to do so.  For a sweet song as; well as a  soothing one, Ella Fitzgerald has  done it again with "It's Too Soon  to Know". Kay Starr and her  platter of "So Tired" surely fits  into the mood perfectly.  The provocative voice of Helen  Forrest is never better than qn  her latest MGM record of "Just  For Now". Harold Mooney and  his Orchestra featuring his superb String Section provide tyi-  usual instrumental accompaniment. ��  For the Woody Herman fans,  "Swing Low, Sweet Clarinet" is  something, and worth an extra  special spin as well as listen.  The ever-dependable Vaughn  Monroe style is well in evidence  on his latest "There's Music In *  The'Land". Vaughn does the  vocalizing and also on the flip-  over "Every Day I Love You  (Just A Little Bit More)?*.  Slipping back' into the past  (a few years ago) we find ourselves remembering a bouncy  ditty by Woody Herman "Goosey Gander". Many of you may  have passed this one over, but I  think you will find it worth a  try. About this time, Stan Kenton  was putting his best foot forward  and giving. the music minded  people a thing called "Progressive Jazz". June Christie is an asset to his orchestra and her  "Willow Weep For Me" is nothing less than marvelous. "Lady  Of Spain" by the Three Suns is  one foK your attention.  For a slight touch of the Be-  Bop style of vocaling, catch the  Modernaires singing Ray Noble's  "Cherokee".  The "Money Song" is a new  novelty and all recordings are  excellent.  For your listening enjoyment  Harry James has given forth  with ' .Ah! But It Happens".  . The Perry Como followers will  not want to miss his rendition of  "Just For Now". ������      ������  Subscribe to .The News Today.  Wm.

Alphonse Des Jardine, a Canadian,  introduced them to America in 1900/ when h^ -formed the first Credit  Union at Levis. Quebec. This same Credit Union; known as LaCaisse  Populaire De Levis, is still operating and boasts that they have never  lost a penny.  CREDIT UNIONS CAN HELP YOU *  FIRST: To save systematically. Even 50 cents a pay day saved, by a  number of members soon accumulates a substantial fund.  These savings pay dividends from earnings at the end of the  ��� year and they are insured against death or total disability'  up to $1,000.00. In the event of death, your estate would  receive $2,000.00.  SECOND: If you need to borrow for sickness, consolidation of outstanding  debts, or other provident purposes; or if you can benefit by  paying cash instead of terms, your earnings have created a  pool from which you con borrow.  These loans are also insured.  THIRD: Inexperienced members acquire a working business knowledge  by acting.on Committees required by the Credit Union Act>  to operate the organization, and they supervise the security  and loaning of their savings.  FOURTH: The Government does not guarantee"Credit Unions' investments  but by .statute, the Government has provided a Credit Unions  Act and Rules and an inspection staff to guide your, enterprise  ' . and examine your accounts for the protection of its members.  FIFTH:      Officers or persons handling funds are bonded.  For information on organizing Credit Unions, please  communicate with Mri T. A.

Let us hope and pray the world  will become more peaceful, and  see the war-torn countries getting back to normal with food  and clothing for all. In our own  centre, we look for a year of better weather than last, and we  should see the opening of our  Community Centre before long,  and let us hope we all enjoy  health and happiness.
