'toriald  i  Teachers deserve thanks  A'A'ast amount of credit is due to the teaching staff of  Elphinstone Junior-Senior High School for the efficient and  clean-cut promotion and handling of.School Sample Day.  Teachers need not go to this trouble to sell their story.  They are backed by one of the strongest unions in the province.  No one could fire or hurt them for doing a day's Avork ��� a'nd  calling it quits.  With this thought in mind it needs must that more credit  is clue the teaching staff for the effort and. time they put into  doing, such an outstanding job.  A lot of thought and planning were evident in the flawless  program which gave parents and interested adults an opportunity to follow the teachings of their youngsters.  The Sechelt Peninsula should be very grateful for Sample  ?Day. A two fold purpose was served: ratepayers had"an opportunity to see the well built school their money will pay for, and  they were given a' peek into the modern school program.  Teachers took their own time and spent-it lavishly on .behalf of the area which they serve.  School District 46 thanks its teachers for their true community spirit. We.are. pleased and grateful..  Red Cross helps ail  ^Disaster is an-ugly word;'Anyone who has seen the inferno ',  ��� of devastation by fire or has  experienced the sudden terrible  destruction of  a flash flood, knows what the'word means -in  '  human misery.' It doesn't require much  imagination to appreciate the problems that; would  confront any  one of us if our  -homes were threatened..  Perhaps no other organization in Canada has done as much  In'the way of disaster preparedness as the Canadian Reel Cross  -Society. Within its organization, each province is under the eon-,  stant-study of a Disaster Services committee whose job it is to  pin-point each community's resources beforehand and to arrange for the swift flow of aid vto the scene of any disaster.  '?W?ithin each province are Red Cross branches, capable of caring  i for victims of minor disasters at once. Behind the branch is the  provincial office, ready to help with transport, supplies and  experienced workers. And behind each division is the national  organization which can draw on the help of other provinces. *  In the first nine months of 1951, the Society provided serv-.  iieesia��t a total of 485 disasters, assisting 3,843.persons.  'The Trork takes money. 'This month the Red Cross is asking  ���every; Canadian ��� to give a little. The., need for all. Red Cross (  work in the year is $5,222,000.
