CERTAIN FUTURE  From my personal eavesdropping oh conversations between  my wife and her neighbors, as  well as from the observations  I've made in accompanying her  on 'shopping expeditions, I am  convinced that the , feminine  mind looks upon credit as some  wand  or Aladdin's lamp.  The pain of parting with cold,  hard cash has been treated to a  merchandising hypodermic. Indeed sales clerks are shocked  and deeply hurt when some male  attempts to make a purchase  with grubby old money. "We can  spread this over 18 months for  you sir," they suggest with an  ingratiating smile, opening the  steel jaws of the trap.  Ot course this system has its  obvious advantages. I suppose  nine out of ten newly weds begin their adventure into matrimony with a rose-covered cottage full of furniture, every bit  of-it (including the roses) purchased on the something-down-  and-a-little-bit-a-week  method.  Without credit I don't know  how we would ever have acquired two daughters, neither of  whom will be entirely ours until  the final payment is made sometime in the shrouded future.

The average person will pay less than 1 % of his spendings as  his contribution to the levy because he has been protected by the  exemption from the tax of living essentials . . . foods, wood and  coal, rent, medical and dental expenses and insurance.  Everyone contributes to the tax. It is entirely equitable. It is  not a hidden tax. �� Low-income groups have either an immediate  or deferred benefit.  The Social Security and Municipal Aid Tax is specifically  designed to improve general health, protect the aged, relieve want  in the province and to assist municipalities in progressive government.  . ^^-stpgfiy  MUNICIPAL  AID  means  Financial Aid to your community . . . lower taxes,  increased services.  SOCIAL  SECURITY means  Old Age Pensions, Mothers' Allowance, Child Welfare  Service, Control of Tuberculosis, Cancer and Venereal  Disease, Operation of Public Health Nursing and  Medical Inspection of School Children, Social Assistance, Hospital Grants and Mental Hygiene Program.

Eight years-ago, the physicians and surgeons of B.C. formed  the non-profit Medical Services Association to provide medical  attention at cost for employee groups through voluntary  prepayment.  Tcday, 122,000 employees and dependents of 737 firms pay  monthly membership dues to the M.S. A. and are able to choose  from over one.thousand doctors in the province when they  need medical care.  Subscribing as well to the Provincial Government's Hospital  Insurance plan, members are thus completely covered for their  basic medical needs���the attention of a physician or surgeon  through M.S.A. and hospitalization through the government  plan. .  Since 1940 M.S. A. monthly dues have risen because of the  increased use of the services provided���1 person in 21 saw a  doctor each month in 1944,1 in 10 in 1948. In November, 1948,  M.S.A. paid out $187,321.91 to 13,458 accounts, the largest  monthly bill ever.  While at present membership is still open to employee groups  of ten or more, it is hoped to broaden the coverage so that  community groups may participate.  The growth of M.S.A., Canada's largest doctor'sponsored  plan, is made possible by the co'operation of B.C. employers,  employees and doctors in this non-profit prepayment voluntary  organization.

MARGARET  ALLEN,  Sechelt.  jjays Wood Prices  fire Reasonable  ilR: IN answer to Constance  Harper's letter to the editor  oncerning the high price of a  prd of wood, I would like to  >oint out a few facts she seems to  iave overlooked.  Have any of you readers ever  imed a man, who even though  ie has a drag saw, to see how  orig it takes before he has cut  I cord of wood. I have seen the  ;ime and work he has to put into  t.  The reason-the prices are a Utile lower in the city is this.  The mills who sell wood at  $10 or so a cord are making almost all clear profit  The   wood   they   sell   are   the  hort ends or waste lumber they  therwise would put in the in-  inerator.  They also cut the outside slabs  [of the logs into wood lengths and  sell them. This wood unless it is  ought  and   dried   a   long  time  efore using, does not make very  ood fuel.  The  man in the country who  has  to  pay  the; government   so  much stumpage for every tree he  falls   and   sells ��� for   wood,   can't  afford to sell it for any less than  ^$12 to $14 a cord.  f   He also has  tq; buy  a license  \ to sell the wood and as a  rule  has to  hire  someone to haul it  for him.   So  after all expenses  have been taken out,*there certainly is not much left to show  for his time and work.   Consider  the high cost of living today to  what it used to be.  Most rnen are making a better  wage now. than ever before so  why begrudge the wood, cutter a  few extra pennies. I'm sure he  has  earned them.  I think there are a number of  you readers who will agree with  me that we. are lucky to get-good  wood for such a reasonable price.  Those of you who disagree with  me should just step out arid try  A New' Job fOl* Jimmy. . . . with another in sight!  NEWS OF the appointment of James Sinclair,  M.P. for Vancouver North to the top parliamentary assistant post by Prime Minister  St. Laurent, and Mr. Sinclair's acceptance of  the appointment .which will keep him in Federal politics as Finance Minister Abbott's chief  aid was hailed with satisfaction and warmth  throughout British Columbia.  For Mr. Sinclair, whose forthright rebellion against certain Cabinet-level tactics  brought him into disfavor with Prime Minister King, and prompted his decision last spring  to retire at the next election, the appointment  was a personal victory.  The heartening significance in the appointment however, is the obvious fact it is a harbinger of a boost up the ladder to a senior  cabinet post for Mr. Sinclair.  Government appointments such as this  generally follow a concise pattern and there  is no reason to believe that Mr. Sinclair's path  will stray from that followed by Mr. Abbott  and Minister of Fisheries Mayhew,    both    of  whom held the Parliamentary assistant's post  to which Mr. Sinclair has now been appointed.  There are those who are prone to analyse  the appointment to explore all the underlying  reasons for it: that there is no reason to believe that Mr. St. Laurent looks upon Mr. Sinclair with any more favor than did Mr. King:  that the appointment came as a political manoeuvre to bring the boisterous B.C. Liberals  back in line.  They could be right; but it doesn't matter  much.  For in the present appointment and the  portent it holds for the future for Mr. Sinclair and British Columbia, few will disagree  that it embodies a tribute to a statesman who,  above all has had the courage of his convictions, and who has always jumped in with fists:  flying to espouse the causes he believes to be;  just and in the best interests of the people he  represents.  Mr.   Sinclair  will  make  a  swell  Cabinet:  Minister.  27.000 Teachers Needed ... an alarming situation  THE ALARMING fact that within the next 10  years Canada must find 27,000 new school  teachers in' addition to those who are ordinarily trained each year, has been revealed at  the Western .Canada Conference of Student  Teachers.  The implication is plain that unless these  additional teachers are found, education in this  country will suffer a depreciation of its standards.  And in a democracy the enlightenment of  the people is an essential factor in economic  and political efficiency, this very substantial  threat to educational standards is bound to be  disturbing.  For the problem of the teacher shortage  radiates a much wider concern than in-'^urv.,'  cational matters alone. ^ X '  The entire social structure of the country  is menaced because education is in jeopardy.  The report of the Canadian Education  Association's committee 'on the status of the  teaching profession recites many reasons for  the decline in the number of available teachers.  f he  Open  Letter  Cranberry Lake, B.C.  Queen Charlotte Air Lines,  GENTLEMEN���I like your outfit. I really do.  You provide excellent service, quick transportation and safety. I could add that your pilots are efficient and courteous, and that your  various offices are extremely obliging. Add  all that to the fact that you have filled a long-  felt want on this coast, and filled it well, and  it all adds up to a No. 1, first-class, pukka outfit.  I won't mention that there's a girl in your  Sea Island office whom I admire tremendously,  because I have a wife. I don't inean that I admire her because I have a wife-^-skip it; I just  naturally think you run a good show.  But���ah, you were expecting that, weren't  you?���I have one teeny, little grouch. Those  of us who are fortunate enough not to live in  Living and working conditions, school  plant, school equipment, personnel selection  are all factors in the situation.  But first and foremost ^ is the matter of  salary.  While other wages have increased some  70 percent since 1939, teachers' wages have increased only 38 percent.  Approximately 15 percent of Canada's  teachers receive less than $1,000 a year, only  six percent receive more than $3,000, and the  average salary across Canada for teachers is  $1,306.  Comparisons in this case are something  more than odious.  For an office clerk in Victoria gets $2,092  a year, a train baggageman gets $2,516 a year  and -Xbottle washer in British Columbia gets  more "than $2,080 a year.  Why train for years for school teaching  when you can make much more washing  ; bottles?  That is a pertinent question for which,  in the very near future, Canadians must find  an answer.  Vancouver sometimes like to, or have to, go  there.  Well, you can meander down the gulf on  the Mariner or on the old "Mary".  These methods of transportation take me,  and most of us, when we want to go, we want  to go. Your planes come to Comox, Nanaimo,  over to the West Coast to Tofino and Zeballos,  and sometimes Powell River and on to Alert  Bay and Minstrel Island.  All of which is very nice indeed, and just  what we've wanted for a long time.  BUT IT COSTS TOO MUCH.  That's all. When you first came in here,  and the government gave you your charter, it  was understood, by most of us anyway, that,  as business increased, you would drop your  prices. Now you charged me $13.25 from Comox  to Vancouver, and I believe it is $25 return.  Incidentally, the plane was not full; there were  only three passengers altogether. You can fly  single to San Francisco for fifty bucks.  I know a lot of people in Comox district  and Powell River and Nanaimo who would  never travel any other way if the prices came  down a little bit. You would have your trips  full up all the time, and you'd make more  money. Remember the old law of Diminishing  Returns? Read up on it, and you'll see I'm  right.  Think it over, QCA.  to cut wood for less and just see  how soon you will want to raise  the prices even higher.  CHRIS LUND.  Appreciate  Thoughtiulness  Editor, The Coast News.

Davis Bay.  held its annual meeting at the  school house on January 16 for  the purpose of electing new officers.  This cold weather might be  nice for ice skaters, but it certainly plays havoc with the  plumbing.  After a short trip to town, but  for the kindness of the neighbor's, we would have returned  to a kitchen ice skating ink. As  it was, things were just damp  when we returned.  Sorry to hear Bruce Silvey is  on the sick list again. He and his  mother flew to town last week  and I understand Bruce has to  stay in bed for awhile.  By J. K.  NESBITT  VICTORIA (SpeciaLto the News)  ���Soon B.C's most important  persons . . . the senior law-makers of the province���the M.L.A.'s  will be gathering here to start  their annual deliberations in the  august Legislative Chamber.  They will talk and they will  argue and they will make some  new laws and amend some old  ones and hear the state of the  province's finances and then they  will collect their $3000 each and  go home in six or eight weeks  for another year.  - Not, indeed, that an MLA  does nothing for the public between sessions. Indeed he does,  He is always at the beck and  call of his constituents.  ROLL CALL FOR MXJL'S  It is interesting to look over  the roll-call of the M.L.A.*s, for  some notable citizens are on the  list.  Senior cabinet minister now is  Hon. George Pearson, Minister of  Health and Welfare and Provincial Secretary.  He has been in the cabinet  continuously since 1933. Finance  Minister Herbert Anscomb and  Attorney-General Gordon Wis-  mer run neck and neck for second seniority place. Each has  been a cabinet minister seven  years.  SENIOR MEMBER  Tom Uphill comes back to the  House this year with added prestige. He's the new Mayor of his  home-town of Fernie.  Not that this is a new position  to him. He was Mayor some years  ago. Mr. Uphill is the senior  member of the House. He's been  ML.A. continuously since 1920  and soon will reach the 29-year  record established by former  Premier T. D. Pattullo.  There aren't many veterans  of 1928 left in the House���Mr.  Pearson, Mr. Uphill, J. J. Gillis  of Yale are the only ones to have  served continuously.  Public Works Minister E. C.  Carson was elected in 1928, but  he was beaten in 1933 and 1937,  re-elected in 1941. Sam Guthrie  of Cowichan-Newcastle first  went into the House in 1920, but  was licked at each election until  1937 when he got in again. John  Mclnnis of Fort George can go  back farther in the House than  any other M.L.A. In 1907-09 he  was M.L.A. for Grand Forks, but  he was away a long time and  didn't get back until 1945. Former Premier John Hart was elected in 1916, but he was out of the  House from 1924 to 1933.  The post office in the Legislative Buildings is so bulging with  mail these days that a sub-post  office has had to be opened for  the government in the up-town  Weiler Building, which houses  many government offices.  GOV'T MAIL GROWING  The Government's mail is  growing by leaps and bounds,  what with the sales tax and the  hospital insurance. Post office  quarters in the Buildings are so  crowded sacks of mail are piled  in corridors and even cabinet  ministers sometimes trip over  them and often a pretty young"  stenographer falls right down and  civil servants have to sit on the  floor outside the post office to  sort the mail.  The government is now spending $100,000 a year on postage  stamps. Business all round is increasing each year. For instance,  this year the post office staff  has stamped 300,000 envelopes  bearing motor drivers' licenses  to all parts of the province.  MORE STRENGTH  The CCF. will have more  strength to answer Coalition  arguments this session, for there's  a new Opposition member���  James O'Donnell Quinn of Rossland-Trail. If Coalition benches  cry out that the CCF. is  through���and Coalition benches  often do that-���Opposition Leader Harold Winch will just point  to Mr. Quinn. That will give Mr.  Winch great satisfaction and it  will annoy no end Premier  Johnson and Finance Minister  Anscomb.  Subscribe to The News Today. Page Six  THE COAST NEWS, SECHELT, B. C.
