We may go swimming, fishing,  boating or through the motions  required by any summertime activity, but our approach will  have changed. Labor Day rings  down the curtain with an air of  finality that leaves the curtain-  calls pleasantly exciting in their  own fashion, but definitely not  a patch on the fervor produced  by the main performance.

' 2 8  viaoioiA  AHvaan avio^iAOHd by Jack Scott  CATS,  CATS, CATS  IN THE last two years our de  ceptively placid grey cat,  Cluny, has methodically presented us with litter after litter of  quintuplets, all of which have  spent their early life in a wooden  box labelled "Caledonia Brand  Fancy  Pink  Salmon.'  By persistent salesmanship I  have managed to get rid of all  these kittens and on stormy  nights when the wind is howling  outside and there is a cheery fire  in the grate I like to lie back  in my Oriental dressing gown  and think of all those cats, roaming the back alleys of the metropolis, purring in the laps of  a hundred tiny old ladies, breeding and producing, knocking  over Ming vases and making life  a living hell for the poor suckers  who  took  them.  Before Cluny came into my life  I used io boasi thai cats made  me "creepy" (spasmodic flexing  of ihe shoulder blades) and thai,  anyway, cats suck your breath  when you're asleep. They don'i  of course, or, at least, ihe 14 or  16 assorted cats who have slepi  al lhe bottom of my bed during  the last couple of years, have  not shown any such macabre inclination.  Truth is that a cat, right from  the moment it's born, is just  about as sensible and charming  an animal as you could hope to  meet.  At the moment, as I write this  at home, there are five kittens  in the fancy pink salmon box at  my feet. They are about three  weeks old and they are having a  fine time pawing each other.  Now, if you had live pups  there (and Lord knows we've had  that, too) they'd all be breaking  their necks to get out. I am a  dog man myself, but it is only  honest reporting to acknowledge  that a cat of any age has about  nine times the sense that a dog  ever has. ,        .  Ii jusl happens we have a pup  in the house/ too. We always  have something. Last week we  had a wren fly in the living  room. Bui that's another story.  This pup is named Jim and he  replaced  Andrew   (or  Annie,   as  ~  Monday, September Filth, Nineteen Forty-nine  Who Should Be Licensed . . .the dog or the owner?  A  MEMBER   of  the  British   parliament    has  proposed in the house of commons that  hereafter licenses be issued, not to dogs, but  to the owners thereof.  The idea is that a dog license should not  be handed out annually to anyone who can  plank down the fee, but only to those who  are found fit to care for a pet properly.  Such licenses would be permanent unless  revoked   for  cause.  It is a somewhat remarkable idea but  fundamentally sound.  Half  the  trouble   caused  by  dogs  is  the  Price of Success . . .  ONE  OF the^most  thought-provoking  of  all  valedictory addresses is in that given to  graduates   of  the   Alexander   Hamilton  Institute recently:  "I often wonder what it is that brings one  man success in life, and what it is that brings  mediocrity or failure to his brother,. The difference can't be in mental capacity; there is  not the difference in our mentalities indicated  by the difference in performance. In short, I  have reached the conclusion that some men  succeed because they cheerfully pay the price  of success, and others, tho they may claim  ambition and a desire to succeed, are unwilling to pay that price.  And the price is:  "To use all your courage to force yourself  to concentrate on the problem in hand, to  think of it deeply and constantly, to study it  from all angles, and to plan:  "To have a high and sustained determination to put over what you plan to accomplish,  fault of owners. The wandering,. boisterous,  destructive dog is nearly always &n ill-trained or pampered dog. The ugly dqg-is usually  a dog that has been abused.  Obviously, then, the dog nuisance would  be materially abated at once if persons who  had no desire or capacity to train or properly  care for a dog were .denied the privilege of  owning them.  The English member's idea has merit.  Perhaps it could be incorporated into this district's dog legislation with considerable advantage to everybody.  and the time to begin to pay it  not if circumstances be favorable to its accomplishment, but in spite of all adverse circumstances which may arise���and /'nothing  worth while has ever been acomplished without some obstacles having been overcome.  "To refuse to believe that there are any  circumstances sufficiently strong to defeat you  in the accomplishment of your purpose.  , "Hard? I should say so. That's why so  many men never attempt to acquire success,  answer the siren call of the rut and remain  on the beaten paths that are for beaten men.  Nothing worth while has ever been achieved  without constant endeavor, some' pain and  constant application of the lash of ambition.  "That's the price of success as I see it.  And I believe every man should ask himself:  Am I willing to endure the pain of this struggle for the comforts and the rewards and the  glory that go with achievement? Or shall I  accept the uneasy and inadequate contentment  that comes with mediocrity? Am I willing to  pay the Price of Success?"  Unnecessary Ornamentation .. .why is it done?  THE APPOINTMENT;, of Dr. Arthur Beau-  chesne to the newly-created post of  "special advisor to parliament" at a salary of  $10,000 a year looks from here like a flagrant  waste of public money.  Dr.   Beauchesne   is   said   to   be   Canada->ri  foremost   authority   on   parliamentary     procedure.   This   dizzy   eminence   was   attained  while he was clerk of the house of commons,  a position from which he has now retired.  If it is necessary and desirable to pension  Dr. Beauchesne, why not do it openly in so  many words? ���   s-  If it is necessary to retain his services as  an authority on parliamentary procedure, it  is obvious that the present clerk and the new  speaker are or will be inadequate in their  jobs.  It seems to us that, between them, the  speaker and the clerk should be able to keep  the commons straight without any high-priced  extra assistance.  she  turned out to be).

NESBITT  VICTORIA. ��� After wooing the  people with a low-cost hospital insurance plan, and winning the election, . the government got around to announcing  that the scheme wasn't paying  its way and that the rates would  go up.  The increase is considerable:  from $15 to $21 for single persons; from $24 to $30 for a couple; and from $30 to $33 for a  group of any number of dependents.  A loi of people are wondering  if the government didn't deliberately set the rates too low, as  a come-on io ihe voters in an  election year. It certainly would  appear this way.  The public somehow got hospital insurance, which was pleasant at the first low rates, and  the three percent sales tax,  which was unpleasant, linked together. They figured that the  three percent tax would take  care of any deficits in hospital  insurance. Cabinet ministers  never discouraged this belief.7 It  comes as a shock, therefore, to'  find that not one cent Qf the  sales tax is going to help out on ^  hospital insurance. /  The government must have  known last May that the _ibs-<  pital insurance plan was running  in the red. Yet not one word/was  breathed about this on the hustings. Cabinet ministers and gov  ernment supporters ran abput  the hustings boasting of a nice  cheap hospital insurance.

We were very fortunte recently in being introduced to a lady  from Alberta who complimented  us on this little paper. Apparently the weekly news sheet is  nothing new there and she  thought for the size of the area  we really had a good one. Look  at our editorials ... we have a  wonderful weapon in our hands  with this paper. We can boost  our community and also if we  maintain a fearless policy we  can adjust a lot  of wrongs.  There is one thing we would  like to see: this paper, take up  the cudgels for the old veterans  of World War I who, through no  fault of their own, are not eligible for WVA. Remember how  these men so cheerfully enlisted  and who landed eventually on  Salisbury Plain or some other  places, where they spent the  .-.��winter under canvas > with a  ground sheet and two blankets?  For that reason we are glad to  see Robbie once more writing  for us. He has always been a  champion of veterans' causes and  our editor is a veteran, and so  we have a mighty fine chance of  getting  something  done.  Another one of our young veterans had to leave his little  family to go in search of work  in Vancouver. We understand  Graham Collison has had to do  that. Surely there could have  been something here for him?  He was trying to make his home  here, is well educated and popular too. Something really lacking on our part, we are afraid.  We should see that they get  preference in any jobs going.  Betsy Lumsden really gave a  good account of Pro-Rec and  especially as regards to Sechelt,  when she was on the radio recently speaking from Vancouver.  Give the local Pro-Rec all the  support you can this coming session. We are too creaky at the  joints to help the thing along but  it should be a joy forever to  those who want to shift that extra poundage.

The table and room were  nicely decorated with pink and  blue streamers, the table centrepiece being a lovely birthday  cake and of course the plastic  candy basket caught the eyes of  all the wee ones. But the highlight of the ��party came when  Diane's mother brought in a tray  of 12 individual birthday cakes  in gayly colored paper cups each  topped   with   a   lighted   candle.  After tea favors were distributed and everyone went out to  play while the mothers and  j Jiane's Grandma Jeffries had  tea.  Joanne Murray celebrated her  first birthday, August 27, with  a party also. Her guest list is  eluded the same 12 youngsters  as Diane's, namely Linda, Larry  and Douglas Silvey, Joyce, Gordon and Dietta Beale, Kenny and  Brian Jeffries, Diane Jeffries,  Joanne's brother Graeme, and  her two cousins Ronnie and  Ritchie Masrey of Vancouver.  The kiddies had individual cakes  and each place was marked with  a colored cardboard*canoe filled  with candy; on thev"brow of each  was  written  each  guest's  name.  Unfortunately the ice cream was  late because the ''Jervis" limped  in at 6:30 instead of 3:30. However, it was enjoyed "by mother  and children when it did arrive.  Mrs. Silvey came home on the   ,  "Jervis" after spending a couple  of weeks in town.  Mrs. Elmer Jorgenson and her  wee baby are visiting Mabel's  parents, Mr. and Mrs. William  Griffith Sr., for a few days.  Mrs.  J. Massey, Ronnie and  Ritchie have returned to Vancouver.  Reid Bryson is spending a  few days in Vancouver and will  no doubt take in the Exhibition.  work at the Union Store, has returned to the city, and school.  A definite date will be set in  next week's issue of the Coast  News for the first' rehearsal of  the newly formed Sechelt and  district   choir.  Also the tentative dates for  the Legion whist drives will be  every second and fourth Wednesday each month. You will  have to look to the Coast News  Event Column for this latter item.  Mr. Mydska came up for his  usual busman's holiday, on account of his wife's sickness. He  missed his tuna fishing run, so  consoled himself with a few  trips around the bay, and as usual, picked up a few salmon and  scores of trout. His daughter,  who usually spends two weeks  here, changed her program this  year, by going down to the States  for the better part of her holiday, spending only three or four  days here.

MARY W. RENNIE  TODAY as I watched some of the  summer visitors getting aboard  the "Lady Alexandria" on their  homeward trip to take up the old  familiar routine again, I had a  feeling of regret that the summer season is nearly over. Each  year the season seems to get  shorter. However these lovely  days we are having at present  help to lengthen it. Here's hoping that the good weather extends over Labour Day for the  sake of the folks who will be  taking the advantage of the long  weekend.  Among the young folks who  are sorry that the holidays are  nearly over are Jimmie and Barbara Scott of Brighouse, who  have been visiting with their  aunt and uncle Mr. and Mrs.  David Bates for some weeks.  Mr. and Mrs. McAlpine have  returned home after a holiday of  two or three weeks. Their granddaughter "Jackie" Moore is visit-  ing them at present.  Mr. and Mrs. Mil-burn with  their three children are at present the guests of Mr. and Mrs.  Frank, parents of Mrs. Millburn,  at Soames Point.  Mrs. Ian Martin of Victoria  with her two small children are  visiting with her parents, Mr.  and Mrs. W. Banks.  Mrs. Docker has returned  home after a week;s visit at Powell River, with her son Jack and  his wife.  Mr. and Mrs. Seymour Johnston entertained Mr. and Mrs.  Glover from West Vancouver,  who prolonged their visit because  of the lovely trout they were  supplied with. Mr. G*eorge Bell  was the generous fisherman.  Quite a number of us are enjoying an odd trout or grilse now  and again, thanks to Mr. Bell's  generosity.  Mr. and Mrs. Brand were the  guests of Mrs. Workman at the  weekend.  Among the guests at the Guest  House this  week were Mr. and  Mrs. Botton, Mr. and Mrs. Bailey,  Mr. and Mrs. A. G.

Dur-  '  ing that time he visited at Tor- ^  onto, New York, Chicago and at 7  Banff and Lake Louise.  We were sorry to hear of the /  accident Mrs. Slinn had the other *''  day. Evidently she put her foot % ���  in  a hole  in the    ground    and ;  turned over on her ankle caus- ;  ing a multiple fracture. We hope  she will soon be able to get ar- ' ;  ound again.  .    *  Mr. and Mrs. Walsh and fam- ^  ily have made a change of resi- X?  dence.

My news this  week is going to be mighty slim;  there's that lull in most everything right now, between times;  fall meetings soon will be starting up, and then we hope to have  news of winter activities.  Off to the city and the exhibition were Ray and Sue Elliott  and family; Jessie Leach and her  two small ones; Mr. and Mrs. Jim  Drummond, and numerous other  Gibsonites. On the return coming home Mrs. Gray and Bev,  Mrs. Elsie Herrin, Mr. and Mrs.  Marsden, and ourselves; mighty  weary looking and all glad to be  home.  Can't say I was enthused about  the exhibition; as far as I'm concerned, it will be a long time  before I bother with it again. It  amazes me with all of B.C. to  choose from, exhibits of plants  and flowers are certainly slim.  With all cactus gardens in B.C.,  the exhibit of them is disappointing���about half a dozen,  that was the extent of those exhibits. Wonder what it is���lack  of interest, or complete indifference? One of the reasons I went  to see flowers was for the cactus display, and I didn't see anything. There were some bulb begonias there, and they certainly  didn't come up to our Mrs. Cor-  lett's garden display here, or the  display that Mr. Reeves had at  our fair last year here. We could  still show them how to grow  flowers if we could get ours  down there.  prize at our county fair for his  gardening abilities, supervised  by his dad, of course. When notified he had been awarded a  prize, he piped up with great  delight, 'SGoody! Do I get a car?"

It hasn't been  such a bad summer, it's gone  pretty swift to me; guess when  you reach that certain age, the  years really do roll by, and very  little one can do to arrest their  flight. So even though school is  the most hateful place in the  world to kids, it's going to take  them a long time to realize it  was the happiest days of their  lives. Make the most of it, fellas, it will go fast enough. I  know because I felt the same as  you all do now; didn't like it a  little bit, and it took me a long  time to realize that the old folks  knew What they talked about  when they said that same thing  to me.

So now I have to set to work  and amalgamate them, so here  goes. Our unit (PCMR Unit 276)  of the Army, Navy and Air Force  Veterans in Canada were hosts  to the West Vancouver Unit. Past  President Sid Hamilton and Secretary H. E. Warburton of the  Provincial Command and Vice-  President Perry Sanford of the  Dominion Command joined the  West Vancouver contingent who  chartered a boat for a very enjoyable trip. Other guests included members from Vancouver  Unit and Kingsway Unit. Expect  we might possibly get a write-up  in Maclean's Magazine as their  representative, Mr. Ray Gardner,  was also there.  Unit President Francis Drage  and Unit Secretary S. J. W. Adkins were empowered to dis  pense with the business of the  general meeting. After initiating  eight new members, among them  Lt. Col. B. M. (Batt) Maclntyre,  MLA-elect.   Col.   Maclntyre   was  then installed as honorary president of Unit 276, and on behalf  of the members of Unit 276 he  presented a life membership  medal to Past President Sid  Hamilton. After the meeting a reception was neld for Col. and  Mrs. Maclntyre. As the unit caterer was in Vancouver, the refreshments were in charge of  Mrs. Dorothy Adamson. Thanks  to F.D. and the P.R.O: of the  West Vancouver Unit for the  foregoing information.

It appears that  there are very few campers left.  I guess they are somewhat disappointed.  Mr. and Mrs. Percy Rathbone  of North Van have returned  home after spending three weeks  with their niece and nephew, Mr.  and Mrs. Frank W. Alexander.  Their place was taken by Miss  Patricia Alexander, their daughter, and Albert (Chick) Lee.  Chick is a young brother of  Frank.

Mr. E. S. Hopper of Westview  is the guest of Mr. and Mrs. F.  Lyons for a few days' fishing.  And speaking of fishing, Mr.  and Mrs. Tchaiskowsky were  fishing off the point Sunday  morning when he hooked into a  salmon and, after playing it,  proceeded to bring it into the  side of the boat to land it, when  bang! away went the salmon,  spoon,. flasher and part of the  line. Very disgusted, they went  on their way, turned the boat  around, and when almost up to  the spot where they lost the fish,  Mr. Tchaiskowsky saw something shining in the water. He let  out the darndest yell, leaned  over the side and grabbed the  flasher and line, and there was  the fish struggling to fr.ee itslf.  Well! He got the fish too!  Mr. and Mrs. L.

He did this  because he had a giant to do  away with, but modern parents  know that Jack was being very  wasteful. Beans are fine food  containing, among other things,  plenty of proteins. They are a  cheap and useful substittue for  meat. Jack shouldn't have been  so hasty with his axe.  THE COAST NEWS, Monday, Sept. 5, 1949  7  By  A.

Socks should  be washed frequently to keep  them soft. A change of socks  after work is refreshing, and a  change of both shoes and socks  is imperative if the feet are wet.

Happily  sess.  there is sound understanding of  ���  this on the part of the wise leaders  of -most    of    our  important  trade   unions.   In   these   difficult  days, 10 years after the outbreak  of  the   Second  World  War,   we  must have  intelligent   co-operation  between  all  groups  in  our  country   if  we   are  to   maintain  importance  in  world  affairs.  We see the troubles of other  lands still suffering from the effects of the last war, striving to  regain their economic feet and  making slow progress.  We are adversely affected by  ihe situation in those other countries as our labor leaders and  employers realize. Our economy  is built on domestic and export  trade with export irade having  accounted for 35 percent in the  past. We must do everything we  can   to   maintain   that   condition  if we are to continue to prosper.  Since the war Canada has been  among the best countries in the  world in which to live. We have  had high  employment at better  wages than ever before, shorter  hours of labor and vacations with  pay. We do not know the meaning of the austerity which they  have   in   Great   Britain   and   in  other lands across the seas.  As we gain advantages to enjoy the better life so we assume  greater obligations. It is obvious  that we cannot take more unless  we  put  more  in.  What I mean  by that is" that we cannot have  better   paid   jobs     and     shorter  hours with paid holidays unless  there  is   increased   efficiency  in  the work of each of us day by  day.  Otherwise,    ihe    gains  would  prove ephemeral, there would be  no improvement in the real living standards of ihe workers and  the interests of the people generally and our national progress  Bring Your Repair Jobs to Us!
