VIHOXOIA Page Two  THE COAST NEWS, SECHELT, B.C.  Friday,   Nov.  5,   T94I  To Handle Army  by Jock Scott  NEW SEASON  SOONER  or   later  we   have   to  face the ugly fact that nine-  tenths of radio today is a cardboard monument to bad taste,  unfunny humor, spurious drama,  dull parlor games and comment  which would do justice to the  village imbecile.  The winter, or prize package,  season has begun. The "greats"  of radio are back with us, earning their fabulous fortunes with  humor and sentiment tailored for  the mind of a retarded moron.  These shows have certain  similarities and I propose today  to classify them as the first step  in preparing a complete dossier.  This may come in handy on the  inevitable day when radio listeners rise up in crusading  wrath-and storm the studios.  There   is,   for    example,    the  studio audience. This is a group  of neurotic half-wits, apparently  near-relatives  of the performer,  who will laugh insanely at any  joke  or  just when, a little man  holds up a sign sayng. "Laugh/  The sounds made by this group  are often a mystery to the ordinary listener at home, unaware  of the fact that after each witticism   the  comedian   allows   his  trousers to drop, six camels are  brought   on   the   stage   wearing  full evening dress and laughing  gas is  released from  the studio  ventilators.  In addition"'to the audience no  program is complete without a  sound effects man who piles a  large number of kitchen utensils  on a step ladder and then pushes  the ladder over on cue. Because  people will laugh at everything  that falls down, particularly if  it happens to be a crippled old  lady, the falling utensils * rou- "  tine may be said to be fairly  popular in radio, a kind of audible  custard-pie-in-the-puss.  .  There is, too the announcer  or rather "our announcer," who  reads the commercials. We are  on "pretty friendly terms with  this fellow since we are in the  position, as it were, of peering  into his throat every few minutes and we are, as he keeps reminding cs, either his neighbors" or "folks."  The assumption from the beginning is that this announcer  has some, exclusive, secret, amazing information and apart  from that is jest the darndest,  lovable, most ingratiating old  neighbor in the world.  "Well, folks," he chuckles,  "been having a little trouble with  the old stomach? Got aT touch  of acid indigestion, eh?" Almost?  immediately you find yourself  sitting in the radio's lap ready  to confess everything. Either  that or you have thrown a heavy  book at it.  This announcer, of course,  must not be confused with the  type who comes on immediately  after a voice says, "And now by  electrical transcription." The  electrical transcription man is  the harsh, dynamic kid quivering with pop-eyed urgency and  imploring you for the sake pf  yourself and your family to  smarten ur and get that old gastric juice flowing while there's  still time.  Of course, by this time, your  gastric juice is undeniably slug-  gisr from the affects of too much  radio and���who knows?-���maybe ^  that's the whole idea.  THE ARMY Benevolent Fund  will soon be administered in  B.C. by a volunteer committee of  three well-known Vancouver ex-  that the Committee will take over  service men.  Within a month it is expected  from the Department of Veterans'  Affairs, which has handled an interim fund since the beginning  of 1947.  Chairman of the Provincial  Committee is Hugh Allan, Executive-Director, of the Community  Chest and Council of Greater  Vancouver. Members are Oscar  Orr, Vancouver deputy police  magistrate, and B. T. Giraud,  Vancouver business man.  Herbert M. Stevenson, World  War II army veteran and formerly engaged in rehabilitation work  with the DVA, has been appointed full-time Executive Secretary.  "Our objective is to build an  organization through, which we  can make a lasting contribution  to the general well being of veterans, not merely as an- agency  concerned with dispensing financial assistance, but concerned as  well with the welfare of the veteran over a period of years," Mr.  Allan   explained.  Applications for assistance will  .be forwarded to the Army Benevolent Fund Committee by veterans' organizations and welfare  agencies throughout the province,  and information concerning the  eligibility of claims and the preparation of application forms will  be supplied to these agencies.  Office accommodation has been  secured in the DVA Building at  the corner of Bute and Haro  Streets, Vancouver, B.C.  The Committee will assume  control of the fund's administration gradually, taking over from  the DVA first in the Vancouver  area and expanding further as  the organization of outside districts is completed.

She certainly looked nice  after her holiday and everyone  was glad to see her. This summer, after retiring from the  teaching profession, she took a  well-earned holiday and toured  through eastern Canada and the  United States.  Bill Feeny who came to this  school only a few weeks ago has  decided to go back to his home  in  New  Westminster.  Our two Spanish-speaking'  chemists, Don Brown and Ted  Park well, were at it again, last,  week. They were in the laboratory supposedly studying Spanish when it seems they became.  a little bit bored. So to do something they decided to put some  sodium metal.in water (this stuff  explodes in water). The result  was a very loud "Bang" which  scared everyone in the neighboring French class out . of their  wits. Mr. Trueman's only remark was "That didn't sound  very much like Spanish."

For  the first time in ages everyone  turned out dressed up for the  occasion, and "shirt-tails out"  was  the style  of the evening.  Our good mayor Don Graham  made a very good job of decorating the hall with ghosts and  dangling skeletons. He even had  a big black cat with luminous  eyes up on the front of the stage.  About the middle of the evening, a "spot-dance" was held and  those who were spotted had to  dunk for apples.  Several times during the evening the record player stopped, but  otherwise ��� nothing went amiss.  Since it was so close to Hallowe'en many of the kids had  fire-crackers  and they just had  to try them out, the result���it  became quite risky to dance on  the floor. The way those firecrackers would roll quietly al-��  ong under the dancers feet,' then  all of a sudden go off, scaring  the poor dancer out of his wits,  was pitiful.  Despite  the   few mishaps  the  dance was a very good one.  Compare Our Pr.cesl  Delnor Frozen Foods  Ice Cream  Groceries    _.

A  fully trained seaman,  highly competent  through broad knowledge    and    experience,  he   is  equally  at home on the deck  of a warship at sea  and on the streets of  the  foreign  lands to  which his duty takes  him.    Wherever    he  goes he wins respect  for Canada. He has  a satisfying  Job and  does it well. He is not  called "Able" seaman  without reason..  8  You'll have a busy, active, adventurous  life.  You'll have a healthy life and a satisfying  one.  You'll visit foreign places and have your  chance to see the World.  You'll have the opportunity to learn a  trade . . . acquire a wide variety of  knowledge.  You'll be given every training and educational aid to help you climb the Navy's  ladder of advancement. You'll be encouraged and helped to advance with the Navy.  Naval regulations  permit 30 days leave a  year with pay.  Pay scales have  recently been increased  . .. and you can  qualify for a generous  life long pension at  the end of your service,  while you are still  young enough to  enioyit.

The right kind of people  could make a paradise there.  Just like a little bit of Old Ireland. After this all we went to  Pender Harbour to look in on  Mrs. Smith, found her quite busy  and contented but missing her  old friends. I gave her all the  kind messages and we will go  up again soon.  . Mrs. Louie Hansen and Mrs.  W. B. Billingsley presided at  the urns at a very delightful surprise shower given in honor of  Mrs. Neil Hansen (nee Faery  Wood). The beautifully appointed table was centred with a.  wedding cake whose theme of  decoration was a miniature bride  and groom. It really was a surprise alright which made it most  enjoyable for all those concerned. The guests included Mrs. L.  McDonald, Mrs. W. B. Billingsley, Mrs. A. Crucil, Mrs. J. Seely,  Mrs. E.

I was just  browsing through .a newspaper  when to my consternation I read,  men's suits, $6.50, worth ten  bucks. Flannel shirts, 35c. Hats  45c. Where on earth? Oh, here  we are. Let me set you right.  William Page 156 Cordova St.  Yes folks, that was in the good  old days, when Cordova St. was  the main stem in Vancouver. I  often ��� wondered why they called them the- good old days. Well  this was way back in- nineteen  hundred. The paper? You guessed it, Vancouver World. 'Member  Mayor Taylor. I guess he owned  it-  Well I have an idea that this  column will be about the last  one that I will write for your  paper. It's been fun doing it, but  things are happening around my  place, and in the immediate future I'm going.to a place where  it will not be at all convenient  for me to subscribe a column to.  the good old Coast News (first  i_i the field.)  So, I am on the look-out for a  good correspondent. There has  not been a-great deal to criticize in this paper. But I, like  many others would like to take  exception to the recently published letter designating Sechelt  a "Den of Iniquity." Surely the  Writer's pen could be put to a  more elevating use. If the loggers  wish to go to the city, they will  go, regardless of what you say or  think. It's their democratic right  and as far as the "Good Time  Girls" are concerned, that is all  stuff and nonsense. You are  probably so tangled up with  your prohibition conscience  that you did not take time out  to seek* the truth. For in my  humble opinion, a person coming  to Sechelt for a holiday, or if  you will, .a rest, does not as a  rule go around lanes or side  roads, looking for bottles et al.  Nor do they heed the hilarious  jovialities of a bunch of hard  slogging * loggers.  Sometimes I think the people  of this district appreciate a little  livening up once in a while, and,  if the majority voted for a beverage dispensary, so what? I believe that we, as a whole, do not  like the manner in which the  minorities of other countries run  things,. Thehj why worry in our  little corner of the world? For  are we not taught something of  good and bad in people. May I  ask Mrs. MacMillan in conclusion*  Where, per square mile, will you  find less crime committed, less  juvenile delinquency or less of  anything so revolting and disgusting lhat you find in many  other places, in our fair land,  even including your beloved  Toronto?  You say it is taking away the  beauty of Sechelt. Well that's  all according: tb how you look  at it. Youcfihish up your lashing  by saying, like Trudy, you will  go further afield to spend your  money and your holidays. They  Twon't print what I'm thinking,  soxwhy write more.'  We are Very; pleased to report  ih this column that good progress is being made toward recovery of Capt.

The  little miss entertained some of  her small chums, at the home of  her parents. The table was 'tastefully decorated, with Hallowe'en  doo dads, and each child was the  recipient of a Hallowe'en novelty. Games and a sing-song  wound up the hilarious evening.  Among those present were Esther Joyce and Francis Gilbert-  son, Shard-Anne- Maywood,  Lynda Lucken and a few grownups, not forgetting Bernie and  Stan Macleod.  Mrs. Palmer with her small  son paid a visit to her parents  Mr. and Mr... Bourne of Wilsons  Creek returning home to Vancouver after an enjoyable week's  rest.  Miss Scott has been in Vancouver for the past two weeks,  attending the funeral of her  niece. May I express the sympathy of the many friends of Mrs.  McArthur of Wilsons Creek, who  recently passed away. This was  indeed a sudden passing, and  our deepest sympathy goes out  to her son in his tragic loss.

Of course the former  idea is miles ahead of mine. But  according to the time the people  of the Peninsula have to wait for  "anything they desire, I still  think we should go ahead. However the only thing is, to keep  pegging away at them. We may  eventually get somewhere.  I also observe the Fisheries  sign which was in front of my  place, is lying prostrate on the  beach, of course it was very  windy on Hallowe'en eve, but'  whether it was the wind, or the  witches,   I   wouldn't   know.

IN COLD WAR TO WIN THE PEACE  REAS0MF0R  0 E F B  By centralizing buying  and transportation, including delivery at destination, substantial  savings can be effected.  The scattered efforts of  many can be channelled  into an efficient single  stream of relief, without  a loss of individuality as  -to persons, groups or  organizations.  MORE AID PER DOLLAR  For example: the cost of:  placing a ready packaged  10 lb. parcel in the hands  of a recipient in Britain,  exclusive of content, purchase price, is approximately $2.50 at pi-esent,  whereas through UEFB  concessions the comparable cost would be 97c  to 79c This economy  does not include the very  substantial saving which  bulk purchasing effects.  The gallant people of Britain are  suffering today because they are  determined to win the cold war.  They are the only nation in  Europe fighting; with body and  mind to vanquish the spectre  that haunts the Old World.  Their health is being weakened, their efficiency impaired,  by the tremendous restrictions  they have imposed upon themselves. They stand in danger of  being defeated by undernourishment.  Why? Because Britain imports  four-fifths less goods than before  the war, yet exports more than  half as much again as in 1939.  UEFB offers the best means  of making your aid to Britain  effective now.  UEFB is a voluntary organization set up to collect, forward  and distribute aid to the under*  nourished people of Britain.  UEFB purchases supplies in bulk.  The British Government supplies free transportation. The  UEFB British'Advisory Council  assures that your dollars will buy  what is most needed for those  who need if the most.  Although UEFB cannot at  present handle used clothing,  arrangements are being made to  do so early next year. ���  I  s  Says the British Ministry of Food:  ". . . we are living on marginal nutritional standards, and there  is cause for anxiety lest thisyshould" he having adverse effects on  physique and health . . ��� Everything you can send us is wanted  and urgently wanted."  If the' British people go under, YOU and all of us, will feel the  effects. We need a strong Britain to help fight the cold war.
