RENNIg  7   Your correspondent regrets the  Jack of the column in the last  two  issues  of the   Coast  News.  .The notes were written as usual  for the issue of the paper dated  Oct.   29.    Evidently    they   must  : have been lost or mislaid somehow.   We are disappointed they  .were not published as they were  items of interest to the community.  : The last two weeks were spent  in   Vancouver   so  we   were   not  :on   "the   job"   of   finding   news  iitems.  Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Ouellet have  ^arrived from  the  east to spend  the winter with their daughter-  Mrs.   A.   Marten.    Mrs.   Marten,  who  was  an  active  member of  the   Registered   Music   Teachers'  ^Association  in the East,, intends  ;to resume teaching in the com-  . munity.   She is a graduate of the  JLyell   Gustin   Piano   Studios   of  [Saskatoon,   and   a  former  pupil  of Roger Filiatrault of Montreal.  On Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 9,  ;a whist'drive was held at the  l home of Mrs. Fred Soames uh-  vder the auspices of the Women's  ^Institute. Thfs^ was the second  * of a series of whist drives which  ���: are being held as a means of  I raising^ funds. A. very enjoyable  time was spent by the ladies, 24  ifs took part in the game..  By "ARIES'  VERY GLAD to hear that Mrs.  Frederickson, hostess at the ,Se-  chelt Inn, is back with us once  more although still in bed. Good  going though to have got that far  now.

The more we get together the  happier we'll be goes the song  ���well we had a grand party at  Rockwood Lodge on Saturday  with Mr. and Mrs. Morrison as  hosts, and enjoyed the ". music  immensely.

The pipe bands were very  inspiring and Spencers Remnants although not so many as  before still looked very smart  in their kilts and march as well I  as the younger vets.  The Fusiliers also were very  smart and two units wearing  the traditional busby looked very  well indeed. One sad incident  was the. collapse of an old South  African vet. Many of the service  women burst into tears.  A vry nice party marked little  Jeanne Lawrence's 4th birthday  last Friday. Gifts, cake and ice  cream were the order of the day,  for the little folk.

Pender Harbour, * -C...  "I'VE THOUGHT THIS  THING OUT..."  Says Tom Franck  I think I can make up my own mind better than any  government official can do it for me. And that's why  I'm plugging for our free opportunity democratic system.  To me, it means freedom of choice; choice of education  and vocation, choice of .employer and of politics.  Like most young Canadians I want to choose my education and fit myself for the job or the profession I've  decided on ... not be told how and what to do by a  politician two. thousand miles away. If I'm capable���  and who doesn't try to be���I'll succeed.  And what's more important, our free opportunity  democracy makes it possible for others like me to get  ahead as far and as fast as they can. What our politics  are or who our families were doesn't matter. We'll  make it on how well we do our jobs ... not how well  we know a political boss or how well we serve an all  powerful political party.  I've thought this thing out. By comparison and on its  own merits, our free opportunity democracy offers more  to me���a student���than any Socialist or Communist  state would. And by more, I mean more choice of  what I want to do,, more opportunity-to succeed,  more rewards if I make good, and a higher standard  of living for everybody.  Certainly   I   want   a   free   opportunity  democracy. And because I want it, I'm  going   to   work   to   defend   it   and  improve it in every way I can.

So we borrowed  one from the Record Appliance  Shop.  Mr. and Mrs. D. Davies came  up to help keep things going  ahd look after the record player.  There were several novelty  dances; including a lemon dance.  Roy Gray and Chrissie Stewart  were   the   ones   stuck   with  the  lemon when the dance finished.  Chrissie said she actually en-<  joyed it. What a gal! Earle  Foulkes was the fellow who  couldn't answer the truth and  consequence quiz. His punishment was to kiss a gal, but he  wouldn't do it in public���not  even with the lights out.  A best dancer's dance was  held with Doug and his wife  as judges. Jack and Ruth Norrjs  were claimed to be the best  dancers on the floor.  Afterwards pop and cake were  served.  The next dance will be held  November  27th   and   the    Teen  Town hopes to get the Legion- (  naires   Orchestra   on   that Xdate.'

I would  immedi-tteiy draft all the barbers $$d train T^hem in commando tactics and parachute  jumping7I would then load them  ,all jnto a fleet pf B29 bombers  and drop them in pairs across  Rooshia  at  night.

I was once a judge at a  beauty contest and several of  the mothers of the contestants  are said to be still looking for  me with blood in their eyes.  Judging anything is a danger-,  ous business because no man is  neutral, specially when it comes  to weighing the merits of the  ladies. His judgment can be  hopelessly warped in making a  neutral decision by nothing more  than the color of a contestant's  hair, the look in her eye or even  if she just reminds him of a girl  he once met at a* summer camp  at the.tender age of 16.

In the case of peaches, a  j udge would look for texture,  the absence of fuzz, the firmness of the fruit itself and of  course, for size. Peach judges  probably lead a fairly dull life,  but obviously never have to  keep an eye on the nearest exit.

The new Anglican  Minister was called for and he  drove the injured girl down to  the doctor. When she arrived at  the doctor it was discovered that  she had broken both bones below the elbow and dislocated  . her elbow joint. On Friday she  was taken to Vancouver General Hospital.

Coast lumber  camps is now underway by representatives from the Vancouver  Labor Council and the Vancouver  local of the International Woodworkers of America. Purpose of  the tour is to visit as many camps  as possible and explain to I.W.A.  members the workings of the new  master agreement with the operators.  "Camps we have visited so far  said George Home, Vancouver  Labor Council president, who  spent two days in Powell River  district last week. With R. J.  Brown, representative from Local 1-217, Vancouver, he addressed employees of Alaska Pine  Company at Haslam Lake, and  O'Brien Logging Company camps  C and B at Gordon Pasha Lake.  Mr. Home is also secretary of  the B. C. Federation of Labor.  He and Mr. Brown, travelling  aboard the I.W.A. vessel "Mary  Beth", will go as far north as the  Queen Charlottes in a ' plan to  bring the facts of the illegal  W.I.U.C. organization direct to  the men in the woods.  "The I.W.A. is the only union  capable of negotiating a master  agreement with the operators,"  Mr. Home explained. "The W.I.  U.C. is not recognized by any  labor federation and has received  little support from the loggers  themselves."  Wires received at the I.W.A.  district office in Vancouver from  Queen Charlotte logging camps,  asking for representatives to give  .these more remote loggers the  facts about the "two-union" situation, prompted the present  speaking tour of Home and  Brown. They 'expect to complete  their mission in three months.  As long ago as 1835,  Switzerland punished all non-voters.  Lumber  Mixed Lots  ���t  FIR and  HEMLOCK  1x3 and 1x4  25.00  PER M  B.C.

Ottawa, on Mr. King's orders, gave  instructions that all Dominion  Government buildings were to  fly the Red Ensign when the Union Jacks wore out.  Now the Provincial Government is doing the same thing and  all Provincial Government buildings throughout the province will  fly the Red Ensign. Even Government House, home of the  King's B. C. representative has  taken down the Union Jack. The  old Imperialists jsnorted in indignation when they beheld the  change and muttered about "Willie King's flag���that's all it is."

Seldom do-they  weaken a government in power,  if a government has a good strong  "majority in the legislature, which  the present government has.  Their chief importance lies in  the fact they show which way  the political winds are blowing.  That is why the Coalition Government anxiously awaits verdict of  the voters in Rossland-Trail and  South- Okanagan by-elections November 29.  If the CCF. should win, the  government would have to pull  up< its socks. It would have to  increase its contributory, compulsory hospitalization plan without increasing the premiums; and  it may be necessary to drop the  sales tax from three to two per  cent.  If the government wins, it will  be taken as approval of the hospital plan and a sign the public  isn't particularly annoyed by the  sales tax.  Coalition held both seats until  W. A. C. Bennett resigned South  Okaiiagah to contest Yale Federal  seat and then got badly "beaten by  the G.C.F., and until the death of  J. L. Webster in the late summer.  South Okanafan is a Conservative seat and Rossland-Trail is  Liberal.  HANEi-IN-HAND  Liberal  Premier  Johnson  and  his Conservative partner, Finance  Minister   Herbert   Anscomb   are  gQing.hand in hand to the ..elec-.  i tors to tell them what a great job  \ the Coalition is doing for the peo-  i pie and to warn them of the dan-  | gers of Socialism and Gomhiun-  ; ism:   Mr.  Anscomb  insists ; they  \ are one and the same thing.  of the Lord, and shall not find  it. In that day shall the fair  virgins and young men faint for  thirst. * AMOS 8:11-13.  WHOSOEVER believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of  God: and every one that loveth  Him that begat loveth Him also  that is begotten of Him. By this  we know that we love the children of God, when we love God,  and keep His commandments.  For this is the love of God, that  we keep His commandments aiid  His commandments are hot grievous. For whatsoever is born of  God overcometh the wotld; and  this is the victory that dvef^  cometh the world, even our Jaith.  He that believeth ort the SOii  of God hath the witness mhhjh-  self: he that believeth ndt.God'  hath made him a liar; because  he believeth not the record that  God gave of His Son.   .. ���'-.���_.'���,  1 JOHN, 5:-.-4>10;  on  By  JOHNNY  EDWARDS  SINCE   writing  last,   there  has  been - sortie very good news  froift the Decca Recording Company^ They are putting forth  with a new record label called  "Coral". Many of the old recordings are being re-released  and here are a few that are excellent. "Moonlight Cocktails"  and "I'd Love to Live in Love- f  land" by Glen Gray. "Tiger Ray"  cut by Louie Snicklefritz ably assisted by Leopold Stakowski who  is playing Bazooka. This record  was made in 1936 (Stakowski has  sure gone a long way since then).  "Calm Seas and Palm Trees"  by the Blue Jays. Julie O'Neil  and the Prom Quartet sing "Let's  be Sure" and "Sue's Birthday  Party". (She'll never see 30, 40,  50, 60 again.)  These records are worth a listen so be sure to do so. An unusual number is this, re-issue by  Jerry Galion playing "Chop  Sticks" who does some very fine  piano work with some excellent,  bass background. Now that  Christmas is well on the way be  sure to have Bing Crosby's  "White Christmas" on.hand. The  King Cole- Tri6 and their cohtri-.  butibn to the Christmas time,  "The Christmas Song", is worthwhile.  The Mpdernaires and "Winter  Wohderland" is a good buy too.  So long for; now -and; I do hope  this .aids you in selecting your  records.:  7^. f v^x.XXX-x'X.X.:. .  For the Frarikie Laine fans, his  number "Stay as Sweet as you  Are" is up to his usual standard.  Kay Kyser and his "Slow Boat  to China" is another good bet.
