'   ..      ���  SECHELT. ��� Teen - aged  Micheal Whittaker hafs  emerged as 'the fast thinking  hero when local firemen turn-  ead out in answer to an alarm  recently.  Smoke, forcing its way  through ��� the windows and  doors of the Mrs. J. Steele  home, was first indication that  something was wrong. Young  Micheal "with commendable  promptness aiid efficiency,''  turned in the alarm and firemen under Fire Chief Fred  Mills and Assistant Chief  Harry Billingsley held the fire.  C.N.IJv Drive Is  Moneyed Success  More than $550 was raised ,  by local persons headed by  William Lissiman during the  recent fund drive on behalf of  the Canadian National Institute for thei Blind.  The drivie, slated., for two  'weeks,' ran into a1 much longer  term owing to the "continuous  flow of money."  One direct result from .this-  "amazing sum," is- the home  teacher now attending braille  and handcraft classes he-Id at  the home of Mrs. R. Telford,  every second wee-k.  'Said, Mr. Lissiman, "the  results irom such a drive and  the generous donors are wide,  and reach into every home  Avhere blindness* or restricted  eyesight prevails.  . "These classes are open to  everyone who is a member of  the society or is in need bf  aid."     . r       ,  Further information can be.;..  had from ?Rlrs. N.

King iGeorge the f^I died quietly in? his sleep Wednesday, morning, and lb is with the deepest and most  profound sorrow we pay tribute to a great King.  In his own quiet way, our lajie ruler passed through  our lives and left an impression of dignity and kindliness on every person.  Called unexpectedly to rule his peopler iGeorge the  VI, aided by his charming Queen, manfully and with a  sense of obligation it will do us well to ^emulate, took  over the onerous reigns of office guiding his people-  through one of the worst wars in history. Always an  example of strength, this frail man grew above his own  physical weakness anid by mianner and example, backed  by an indomnitable heart, set the example of fortitude  which is without parallel in our time.  This courage it was, that made him resume bis duties  to the people when he should have rested. That great  heart brushed aside objection to his working with the  clear cut "it is my duty."  The British Empire lost a great leader and the world  an even greater man in the passing of our monarch. Our  sympathies go out to his queen and the royal family1.  The king is dead . . .

The fire did little damage  and was confined to the starting point, a wood and coal  heater which had blown its  door open when Mrs. Steele,  was  temporarily   absent.

It ��� was; to the effect  that we, on the Sechelt Peninsula, should give more- consideration to accommodation and  attractions for tourists,, and  not so much agitation? for  roads. I , think the stalement  was made.under the impression that we had good^ roads  up here, and complete' eleetric  power. I quite agree, we' should  have more tourist attractions,  but first-we'must have the  Halfmoon^ Bay cut-off through  and our roads' straight en edi out  before the B.C. Power Commission will run a line up here.  ^ \Yould ? you, as a tourist,  ���drive the second time over our  goat trails? Would, you want  to come up here and use coal  oil for lighting? We have battery radios and outside plumbing. (That is the, little Chic  ;Sale outside the big house.)  We get:'waiter from a well of  "the creek. We have no showers  and no hoX waiter, except what  you heat In-the kettle. I could  mention a few more items we  could have .if we had power,  and the whole tiling boils  ���down to roads.

On a quick trip  to Vancouver for an appendix  operation, Bill Melyea, and  Lome MeKibbin. Home again  and feeling yiery well after her  short stay in Vancouver Hospital is Mi-;.. Joe Sehutz.  Away to town for the next  feAv weeks, and a "lady in  waiting," is - Mrs. J. Sehutz,  and I am "baby sitting" for  the while. No danger of getting rusty in this business.  A beautiful day greeted the  ladies who put on the tea and  sale of home cooking in aid of  comforts for our local fire  laddies, and a reward for their  efforts was the packed hall, a  wonderful turnout, and most  heartening to all who worked  so, hard for his affair. They  took in more than $100.  Congratulation to Gilda and ;  Sylvia, who won the first prize  in the, A.C.T. amateur hour  contest held here a week or so  ago. They will take part in the  finals in Vancouver later.'We  sure wish them ail the success  . in the world, and' hope, they  make the grade down there.  Going to miss "Buck" %and  "Pete" around the cafe. Certainly not going to be the same  anymore, but that's. the' way  it goes, I guess. New faces are  welcome, true, but we do miss  the old ones. Joe Fitchett back  to hospital for another operation, but the news is1 good,  and we hear he will soon be!  home. You can't keep a good ,  man down, and Joe has got  lots of fight yet.  Well, the Groundhog, didn't  see his shadow on Groundhog  day,- so they tell. me. Wonder  if it will work out the way it's  supposed to. News from Miss  M. Dobie, that Miss: Fanny  Grant/-and the'���', "Doherty" ���������  sisters, are'all enjoying a very  fine holiday in Santa Barbara.  Lovely weather, lovely scenery ��� everything lovely.  Took a quick trip to Victoria  last week, sat in the lounge  and listening in a sleepy-sort  of way ��� relaxing of course  ��� to conversations from the  Prairie people all around mo  talking of crops, etc. It.got to  the stage, where, if some one  had talked to me, I'd have gone  into peons of praise about the  ]l 3 acres of stump-land I ha.ve  in the offing, and the. thousands of dollars! was going to  make out of the timber that  isn't there, of course.

Much Ado  BY   CHERRY  WHITAKER  * It is quite possible that,  with a fiendish chuckle Mother  Nature may tjirow us right  back in the ice-bin before the  end of March. At the moment  there a're indications, that  spring is about to emerge. The  pussywillows are popping and  the flowering wild currant is  sprouting. The 'air is softer and  even with a cold, you can.  smell things growing. Perhaps  it is only a false alarm, but  the hope that "springs' eternal  in the human breast," takes  all upward surge to remove a  little of winter's lethargy. You  know, that-the bad days don't  last forever, and that it's possible to think constructively  about plans for summer.  Gardening tools do a perceptible jig whenever you walk  by the corner in which they  are stored; paint brushes  bristle with a silent plea for  action; hou sehold appurten-  ences stir uneasily beneath  their accumulation of winter  grime; articles which have  been falling gently out of overstuffed cupboards, start leaping out with a virulenc.e and'  alccuracy somewhat astounding  to the casual passerby.  Children break out in a rash  of tree-climbing, puddle jumping and  all types ofmuscular  ajctivity.  They  also  develop  a  violent allergy to chores. Mexican   jumping   beans  may   be  interesting to Watch   but   the  waste of energy is heartbreaking to the non-conscious adult.  (This reaction is probably due  to an unconscious envy of the  tree-climbing,   puddle-jumping  juniors rather than  any deep  rooted    belief * in    their    offspring's shiftlessness.   Though  it would be most undignified  for one of my years to do so,  I confess that I'd much rather  climb trees   than   clean   cup-  boards.r I  might  even stretch  the confession a bit, amd admit  that   dignity    and    cupboards  could go hang if I thought I  could    climb  a tree.,   without   .  breaking my neck.)  'Ones of   the  most   engaging  aspects about "spring but not  quite spring" is that you don't  have enough energy to do the  things that your reviving spirits say need to do be done. You  coast along in a state of'mental  animation    knowing   that one  fine day the body will be ready  to  catch up with  the will to  do,  but not yet. ��� definitely  not yet. The sap has not started to run, so it's futile to try  rushing any fences.  About-to-be-spring is a time  for consolidating the firm, but  slightly  neglected  resolves   of  the new yejar. Time.to sort out  the  fiajct  from  wishful  thinking,   to work out a practical  plan of action that can be carried out without the assistance  of two extrai feet and another  head.    You   fee!   that   things  could  be  better,  but  you are  thankful that they aren't any  worse than they are. And with  the   assurance    of more,   blue  skies and sunshine it's impossible to entertain gloomy forebodings about the future.  Fall and winter have their  attractions; spring-around-the-  corner has an added attraction^  iil~ that beneath the aroused  will to do things lies quite  satisfaction of just being.

To breathe,  smell and see the first faint  touches of spring brings . the  quiet happiness that is contentment. For the day, at least,  we, feel "That all will be well  f0,1- us all, and of such a kiaid,\  that all who do not sigh for  the moon will be well content."

Robert Macnicol will be a member of the oommitteie representing the Canadian Legion which recently wrote a brief ufging  increase in disability pensions presented tojai parliamentary committee last year, and is now engaged in preparing a brief on war  veteran's allowance which will be given a promised federal  House of Commons committee to be used as a guide.  Following  is   the   statement     " "  issued by Mr. Macnicol to the  press:  This committee, composed of  Alfred Watts, dominion president of the Legion; B.B.

Taking into consideration  the sustained high cost of living and the increases granted  ������ to disability war pensioners,  and to a certain group of  widows, as from January 1st,  this year, it is expected that  the Canadian Legion will press  for not only a substantial increase in the maximum income  permitted recipients of war  veterans allowance/.  There will be the closest cooperation between the Leigion,  and other veteran bodies in  connection with these requests,  but it is likely that each veteran organization will present  its own brief to the parliamentary committee.  It is rumoured the government proposes to revamp the  War Veterans' Act to some  extent, if this is so, it is expected that the veteran groups*  will insist upon retaining the  fundamentals  intact.  of' the   "Ac?
