It was an unusual pleasure and a rare privilege  for the guests, one of whom remarked that Goldenr"Weddings  were not uncommon anymore, but a Diamoi d Wedding was a  delightful exception.  The   hall, .dressed   for   the      " : "���  occasion, was filled with guests,  wher*,-' to the strains of the  Wedding March, Mr. and Mrs.  Bartie entered and- walked  through the crowd of guests,  who had spontaneously risen  to their feet in; tribute. As they  walked with members of their  family, to . the front of the  room, applause broke out.  The old couple, both eighty  year,ii young, stood beneath an  arch of flowers to receive the  personal congratulations and  good wishes of every one of  their friends. At this point and  later, Mr. ai d Mrs). Bartie were  the subject of many photos,  by both aimateiir and professional cameram,en, for wThieh  often disconcerting experience  they posed with, all the poise  and graciouiiness of seasoned  society   subjects.

'all  sweetness and light, it had its  troubles too, but happiness and  content were acheived by a  spirit of give and take.  Mr. Bartie too, rose to thank  their friends, those who could  not come to the party as well  as the many who had come, in  i-tpite of the heavy rain. He  said there might be many  couples who could celebrate  diamond weddings, but he was  sure that no- couple could possibly have i-o many real friends  as they. He too, had some little  jokes, to tell, and then, "My  wife says I've .said enough"  he concluded to'the^ joy of  every one. "'""-....

British Columbia  St Mary's Hospital  It is not the.-.policy of" the Coast News to lend it_*l_ editorially  to the promotion-of commercial enterprises individually, and in  our urging of support for the only Hospital in the area, we do  so, not from the point of view of commerce, but of humanity.  St. Mary's has been in the past to all this Peninsula, a life  saving institution, and can continue to be. We realise fully that  at the present time, it is much easier for thi? people of the lower  end of the Peninsida to go to Vancouver for hospitalization:' This  of course, contingentupon space being available in the already  ���overcrowded city hospitals.  When the. new road-program has been completed, it will  then be simply a matter of choice, in very many instances calling  for hospitalization.  The Hospital has) been operating at a loss for some time past,  and it Ihfis become too great a burd/en for the Columbia Coast  Mission to bear, for the benefit of the small number who have  been occupying the hospital.  Elsewhere we have published.-the many reasons for these  losses, and the reasons .why, regardless, the Hospital must be  kept in operation. ;  �� This, now, is, a plea for everyone, regardless of the area in  which they live, to give what help they can to raise the dz-.eessao;  funds to secure the continued operation of this very valuable  institution. Local barriers, whether of area pride, district rival-  Ties and petty jealousies must be oyer ridden in this present  ^emergency, and in tlie future,-to keep St. Mary's in operation.

Old man winter first showed,  his white blanket" on January  6th, but his "attempts to retain'  the upper hand Were quickly  washed away by mild air and  warm rains, which have continued every day since, a total  of 26 consecutive days with  precipitation to thie, end of  January. ���'"���*'  A total of 11.53 .inches of  rain fell at Gibsons, and combined with 6.6 imche# of snow,  made a total of 12.19 inches  of precipitation for the month.  Rain fell on 28 days during the  month, and there were, three  days with snow. January 15th,  the w e 11 e.s t day, had 1.79  inches of rain, while January  7th had the, greatest snowfall,  when 4.8 i/nche;;: were recorded.  The mean temperature for 8  a.m- was^ 39^8 degrees, while  for 8 'jpra^it was 41.0. degrees-  It is almost, certaiin. that Gibsons, too, reached near record  figure?, for rainfall, and days  with rain.  Most   residents   will    agree  that the winter thus far has  ' been mild indeed, and has represented a great saving on fuel  alone- Though signs of spring  are   evident,  over ?|x  weeks  remain (from Feb. 1st) till the  official   da^   of Nature's  awakening. February is flfhead  of ns. and some winter weather  is rtill to be" expected, whether  Mr. Groundhog'says so or not.  c  TowU ' Meeting   of   the   Air  Program".  We quote from this letter  for the. informaition of those  interested.: "No' films; have  ever been banned, in Alberta  on the grounds,; of racial prejudice".  Mr. Louis Hyndman, .at.  EdmontoBi Lawyer, secrf<tary  of the New. Era club. at that  time (April, 1950) announced  thigit it (the club) would, exhibit three-, ifilms banned by  the Alberta Censor Board, 1.

The  House I Live Im, All of which  had been screened and approved by the Board on the following dates: June 24, 1946,  October 22. 1946, and November 17, 1946. All three films,  were given a 'Family Entertainment* classification, which  permits family showing anywhere in the province. Each  film was part of the well-  known series 'Canada Carries  On3, Mxid has been shown in  many Alberta theatres during  the. period 1946 ta 1950.  These three films w^ere included in the s y 11 a b us of  training for the Canadian  Army.

It   deals  with  these  men) of the past from the late  sixteenth century to the early  nineteenth, whose explorations  and   discoveries   of  the   West  Cosst ai'd routes to this land,  brought civilization and colonization in) their train.  The material is well presented, coi-'cise, and with enough  color to keep young interest  alive. The illustrationis are  numerous and'suitable to the  material.*  The conclusion, this reader  believes, could well have been  extemcled to.avoid the. note of  fntsration and hopelessness of  Simon Fraser. That he himself  did lL'Ot accomplish his pen ;o r>~  a] aim,s should mot be. permitted  to detract from the glory of  the work in in total. It would  have been well to have added  a short note or summary which  would have served to gather  all tlilei vari-colored threads?  into *a kind of tapestry of  triumph.

An "equal sharing" of poverty is not attractive.  Today, economic-' progress of the  countries now recovering from World  War II can be measured by the  amount of freedom they have given  business and industry to carry on  commercial adventure in the hope  of making a profit.
