Born in Michigan in 1873, Harry came west as a,young chap.  He sailed out cf San Francisco's Barbary Coast when that spot was  world famous. As a young sailor, he had as a friend Jack London,  the novelist of the sea. '   ' ���   .  y  He was a true boxing fan, and  named among his early opponents of the ring Bob Fitzim-  mons, one . time heavyweight  champion of the world; This interest in boxing he carried  through, life, and took so great  a delight in it that he spent con-,  siderable time in teaching young  feUoyrs of the Pender District'  proficiency in the 'manly art'.  Coming to B.C. in 1889, Mr.  Deusenbury worked in the Hastings Mill in Vancouver, and  later at the George Chappell  machine shop.  He was one of the best known  of men in c o a s t a 1 shipping  circles.  Harry moved to Pender Harbour in 1905, one of the earliest  settlers to live there, and opened  up a machine shop. He took a  keen interest in the development  of the district, and served for  years c.s chairman of the School  Board.  He was a friend- of the Rev.  John An tie, of -the Columbia  ;Coast Mission, and did a great  deal of work assisting that organization in its 'activities, on the  ; Coasts-. ���"'��� -y  m  R. Gustafsen and R. Meaden.

Born in Belfast, Ireland, he  visited Vancouver for the first  time, in 1913 and then after the-  war he returned, and finally  took up residence at Roberts  Creek in 1939, ;where he lived  until his death.  Besides his mahy friends, he  is survived by two. sisters in  Ireland and two brothers, Thomas in Vancouver and Robert in  Roberts Creek.

Indeed,   as   Canon  Green   remarked   during   the  funeral service, had, it not been  for the courage and persistence  of this good man, it is entirely  possible that the Hospital might  never have been completed.  There were many difficulties  to be surmounted, then as now,  ���   But Mr. Deusenbury refused to  .acknowledge defeat.  Mr. Deusenbury is survived  by his wife, a son, a daughter,  Mrs. MacWhinney of Vancouver,  and a brother, Roy at Pender,  and a sister, Mrs. Eva Yates of  Eureka, California.  . . ��� ���  St. Mary's Committee  Meets Pender B Of T  ��� The Committee of St. Mary's  Hospital has had a further meeting with the Columbia Coast  Mission, on April 24th, where  they were favorably received.  They have been assured of continued support and co-operation,  from that body.  It is expected that a meeting  of the^ whole community will  shortly be called, before which  a complete statement of policy  for the ensueing year will be  presented.  The committee has met with  the Pender Harbour Board of  Trade, and has given a report  there on its activities. This was  favorably received, and the  Board gave them a very generous and hearty vote.of thanks  for their work of organization.  This whole committee has  been working at near top capacity far weeks, and as the  administrating body of the hospital, it hones to ni|ke announc0-  merits of importance next week;  Some members of the Sechelt  Board of Trade have volunteered  to   conduct   a   house   to   house  " canvass   for . funds   to   aid   the  Sechelt Volunteer Fire Brigade.  The present financial records  of the Firemen show a deficit,  and in view of the expenditures  for fire-equipment, which is  used in fighting fires in this  $rea, and for the general protection of homes as well as business places, it is hoped that the  citizens of Sechelt will be as  generous as they can.  Sechelt's. support in the past  for this group has been very  good, and the-Firemen are confident that they will not be let  down.  Marge Leslie To  Represent WJ.

St  nim  For Your  iionalS  Courage Of Conviction  Premier Bennett began his career as head of a new political  regime in British Columbia with the announcement that an early  election would result from the delicate balance of power in the  house at Victoria. His first challenges to the opposition met with  no success. The succeeding program could have been brought forth  by any party, and obtained the support of most members. When a  truly controversial subject, the Rolston Formula, appeared the situation was reversed, and the somewhat meek support was withdrawn.  Now that the Premier has obtained his objective of an election,  somewhat to his own surprise, we are sure, the changing attitude  of our local band-wagon riders, as well as those of more serious  intent, seems to be in a state of flux, rather than consolidating  itself into purposef illness  We would like to make a mild suggestion for what it is worth.  Whatever the color of political steed, one chooses, it should be  given support born of knowledge of objectives, faith in accomplishment, and assurance; of the honesty of its purpose. There should  be no hesitancy, no groping, no whispering in corridors or aileys.  If a voter is sufficiently convinced that a man or a party is the  one for whom he will cast that valuable ballot, let him be sure that,  it will be a valuable vote, and not merely a costly one. Let him be  sure enough that he can be more than a little 'chesty' about.it, BinV;  most of all, let him be honest about the matter, and not merely  self-seeking, looking for some temporary advantage to himself, to  the cost of the community at large. .  It will, and should take study, not only of ones own needs or  desires, but of those of one's community and of one's Province,  followed by a similar study of the real aims and policies of those  -whom one intends to suppprt.. With the resultant backgroundsone  should findtit. eaSy^lo rally theWppoptyp others; byith^^ery^trengh  of one's convictions: .  .  [ges  Of Ths-Erlish Language  by Jeff Newman  The English language has been  likened to a tree, which, even  though its older branches are  dead, contiues to put forth new  Jshoots. English is said to be one  of the more complicated languages of the world. This fact is not  surprising ',. when the varied  source is considered:  The true Celtic, now extinct,*  was the p rimary language  spoken in the British Isles. Corruptions of the originals are  characteristic of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and the Isle of Man,  the latter being the closest to the  original.  The Year 55 B. C. brought thes  great general, 'Julius, Caesar, to  the shores! of Britain. Within a  century   he   had  succeeded   in  conquering the island. Under the  Roman influence, civilization advanced quickly, but due to the  fall of Rome, England, was allowed to return to it's former state.  Although   the Romans had  occupied the country for 400 years,-  the Celtic tongue remained unchanged, until, in the fifth century, St. Augustine landed in the  south of England and established  the Anglo Catholic Church.  St. Augustine and his followers, though paving the way for *  the literary efforts of others, did  little writing of their own. After  they left, the Celts, used to the  protection of Roman armies,  failed to guard England's shores,  and so ���were' overun by the Saxons and Angles from' Denmark.  The Saxons; and Angles; after  driving the Celts from the southern? part of E n g La h d; settled  thefe,^ntennarriectj arid became  the    A.nglblSax6ri    race.

Your name will there--  fo:y- be removed from the voters  -lis from, this district unless you  ad ise me that you are still reside t at the address under which  yox were registered." .  ,Ir.

If the.  car-! is not returned to the const! :ency registrar, the registrar  as; mes that the person named  on +he card received the card  an'   is  therefore  still  resident  at the address under which he  ���was registered. Therefore his  name will not. be struck off. If  however the card is returned  to the registrar marked 'moved"  'deceased', 'gone to China', etc.,  he then has the necessary authority to strike that person off  the list. V  Since a general election may  ttake place in the near future, I  suggest that residents carefully  check to see that they are presently registered. People who  have recently moved or have not  voted for some time should  check with the Registrar of  Voters at Powell River.  Tony Gargrave, M.L.A.

A J:'y'.Jend of two percent was  declared. The balance of the  year's profits were place in the  reserve fund, it being deemed  advisable to increase this reserve  rather tha declare a larger divi-.  dend.  The meeting expressed itself  as being highly satisfied with  the work of the past year, and  the steady growth of membership, share capita- and deposit  and loan accounts. ���  Mr. Tyner, the manager was  commended for his competent  administration, and his services  generally.

Three large groups within the  industry,   the-  Native   brother  hood of Indians, Vessel Owners  and B.C.

Many clear thinking fishermen believe the election of these  men will result in the end of  antagonism between the Fisheries Association   and  the  Union"  across the negotiating table. The  possibility of peaceful but firm  bargaining by Union men who  want to reach :a price agreement  that will be in the best interests  of the fishermen at the same  time being equitable to the Association in consideration of the  domestic market at the consumer level.

ALL CANADA  INSURANCE  FEDERATSON  ALL CANADA INSURANCE FEDERATION  Oh behalf of more than 200 automobile  insurance companies The Coast News  Thursday,  April 2,  1953  /  (Continued from page 2)  brougnt uieir own language from  Denmari-, and it is this language  that ionns the basis oi our modern one. The first Piece of  Englisn lituerature, nameiy  ' nameiy, "Beowulf", is writtn in  this language.  "Beowulf tells of the adventures of a partly mythical folk-  king   and   his   encounters   with*  many evil influences. The folow-  ing  excerpt  is  from  the most  famous of his exploits, the fight  with Grendel. Is shows what the  language  was,  and   the  accompanying literal translation shows  that  some  words  we   use now  have persisted almost unchanged  for well over a thousand years.  Grendei's gloomy land is being  described.  "Hie dygel lond Warigeath  Wulf-hleothu, windige naessas;  Frecne fen-gelad, thaer. fyrgen-  stream Under naessa genipu  nither gewteth Flod under  folden." v ,        j  (They (a) darksome land, Ward.  Wolf-cliffs, windy nesses, Frightful fen-paths where mountain  streams Under nesses' mists  nether wander A flood under  earth.)  The similaritary of many words  can be seen in this excerpt. For  instance,, land and lond, wolf  and wulf,,windy nesses and windige naessas, nether and nither,  Under and stream are used in  the modern sense.  The heavy, four footed beat,  the prevalence of double words  such as fen-gelad (fen-paths)  and wulf-hleothu (wolf-cliffs)  and the absence of rhyme, are  charactaristic of the Anglo-Sax-  ,on poetry. The minstrel who  sang the poem would accompany  it with' a chord on the lyre or  harp on each accented beat.  For easier reading, more vivid  pictures and -more meaning, J.  Duncan  Spaeth   has   translated  the poem into modern English.  The translation is very like the  original  in  that   the  third and  first beats alliterate. This is believed  to  be  the beginning  of  jhyme.  "Lonely and waste is the land  they inhabit,,  Wolf-cliffs wild and windy  nesses.  Ledges of mist, where mountain torrents  Downward    plunge    to    dark  abysses  and flow unseen."  After "Beowulf" came many  Anglo-Saxon poems, all handed  down, never written, telling of  battles and feasting. Later, in.  the 9th century, a Northumbrian monk by the name of Caed-  mon wrote a great deal of relig- ;  ious poetry. His is the first  recorded poetry of England.  Prior to this, it was sung by minstrels to the accaompaniment of  the harp. The following is a fragment of Caedmon's translation  of the Scriptures: '\Eall werod  /theas folces waes ute gebiddende  on thaere offrunge timan." This  was written in the 9th Century.  Translated it reads: "And the  whole multitude of the people  were praying without at the time  of the incense." Luke 1, .10.  The difference between Caedmon's version and Whycliffe's  (1380) is very apparent. Compare: "And all the multitude of  the people was without forth and  preyede' in the our of encency-  ing." The reason for this it that,  following the invasion of the  French in 1066, the Norman and  Anglo-Saxon language became  well mixed. An example of this  mixture is shown in the comparison of these  words:  Anglo-Saxon, sheep, modern  English Mutton, French Mouton,  Anglo-Saxon cow, modern English beef, French beouf.  In Sir Walter Scott's "Ivanhoe"  Wamba, the jester, says, "How  do you call these grunting brutes  running -about   on    their   four  legs," "Swine, fool, swine," said  the herder." "And swine is good  Saxon," said the jester, "but how  do you call the sow when she  is flayed and drawn and quartered and hung up by the heels  like  a traitor?"  "Pork,"  answered the  swineherd.  "I am glad every fool knows  that too,' 'said Wamba, "and  pork, I think, is good Norman-  French; and so when the brute  lives, and is in charge of a Saxon slave, she goes by her Saxon  name; but becomes o Norman  and-is called pork when she is  carried to the Castle-hall to feast  among - the nobles; what dost  thou think of this, friend Gurth,  ha?" . ,  "It is but too true doctrine,"  said Gurth.  Who could show the difference  in the language better than a  Saxon fool, schooled by French  nobles?  With the addition of French  words" the language became  much easier to understand. As  can be "seen from the following  selection from 'Chaucer's prologue to the Canterbury Tales,  the English language was almost  modern by the 14th century,..  "Singing he was, or floyting  all the day,  He was as fresh as is the month  of May. '*'-���'.  Short   was   his. goune,    with  sieves longe and wide. <-:  Well could he sit on hbrs, and"  fair ride."  Translated:  "Singing he was, or fluting all  the day,  He was as fresh as���: is the  month of May.  Short was his gown, with  sleeves long and wide.  Well could he sit his horse,  expertly ride."  Sir Thomas Marlory's "Morte  D'Arthur"  written in  the   15th  century and translated from the  French .is quite readable, with-,  out any further tranlatiOn. Little  is known about Malory except  that he was arrested for assaulting his neighbors, and wrote his  book   while   serving   a   twenty  year   prison   sentence.   Fifteen  years after the book was finished  it was published by the famous  medieval printer, William Clax-  tpn,   who   introduced   printing  into England.  Except for a few minor  changs in spelling and in endings, the language has stayed the  same throughout the next four  centuries. Of late years there has  been another radical change  with the introduction of slang  such as reet, meaning right, hot  dog, beat it, scram;; jump in the  lake, etc. A era of.phonetic spelling (e.g. nite, bpby'sox,) and  abbreviated words (UN, K.O.,  Reds, P-TA, Xmas) is coming.  It is no wonder then, that with  an origin as complicated as' our  has, that there should be countless pronunciations, spellings and  meanings. For example take the  ending "ough" and note the different sounds���cough, bough,  slough, rough,. thorough, ought.  There was once a new Canadian  from Scandinavia who complained of a 'cow in her box'  Upon questioning her it was  learned that she had #acough in  her chest���cough as in bough,  chest, a box.  The following were written by  Lear.  A tutor who tooted his the  flute  Tried to tutor two tooters to  toot.  Said the two to the tutor  Is it harder to toot or  To tutor two tootors to toot.  A girl who weighs many an oz.  Used language I will not pro-  noz.  Her brothr one day  Pulled her chair right away,  He wanted to know if she'd  boz.  She frouwried and called him  mr.  Because in sport he kr.  And so in spite  That vry nite  This mr. kr. sr.  Ridiculous, isn't it? But what  can one expect from a language  which contains some words pronounced exactly the same with  an entirely different meaning,  and others with the same meaning but absolutely different pronunciation?  Why should not 'sister' be  abbreviated when it is usual to  abbreviate 'Mister'? ,  One of the idiosyncracies of  our language is the use of unnecessary letters in the spelling  of a word. An exeggerated example of this appears in the joke  about the man from Mars who  upon being asked his name,  wrote it down as 'Phtholopnyrr'  and pronounced it 'Turner'. He  arrived at this conclusion thusf,  T as in phthysic (pronounced  tisic) ur as in Colonel-(kernel),  n as in-gnaw (naw), er as in  myrrh, (mur). .  Another glaring (glaring meaning easily visible in this case,  but could mean bright, as an  adjective or, as a verb, dazzling)  example of the peculiar use of  letters is in the word ghoti, pro-  ��� nounced 'fish' f as in enough  (enuf), i as in women (wimen)  and ti as in station (stayshun).  The English language bears  the brunt of many a joke and  riddle, to wit: "When is one egg  enough?" Answer: When it is tin  eouf.  -. -- ������������������     .-��� \  ^Punctuation, too, can be the  source of amusement, as can be  sseen in the following sentence.  "That that is is that that is not  is not but that that is hot is not  that that is not is that that is  that that is not;  , (That, that is; is; that, that is  not, is'not; but that, that is not,  is not that that is; nor is that,  that is, that that is not.)  ]Ehough of that.  That the words of the English  language do hot mean always  what they say is evident in the  following/The so-called German  silver contains ho'silver. It is an  alloy of copper," nickel and zinc.  A steelyard is not a yard, nor is  it steel. It is a balance. ���������/  An essay on the English language would not be complete  without .mentioning the longest  words. Shakespeare, in "Love's;  Labour's Lost'y gives us 'honori-  ficabilituMnitatiDUS' (Act 5,  scene 1, line 44.) To William  Gladstone we owe 'disestablish-  mentarianism! yThere are also  many scientific! words, one of  ���which is 'paraoxymentamethoxy-  <ally_benzene_'. y-  In some-partsfpf England there  ieems to be trouble with the  letter 'h'. An old English gentleman wanting, to j telephone to the  town of-Harrow, picked up the  receiver and asked, "will you  give me 'Arrow'?" When asked  by the operator to spell it, the  bid gentleman ;^aid, "Well it is  like this. "Arrow. Haitch as in  'orses. Hay as in-ay, what orses  are fed. Double har as in 'Arrow  the town what I'm hafter, ho as  in hoats, another 'orse foodU and  w as in Woostershur". (Worcestershire) Th old gentleman got  his number without delay. -  A variety of kindred dialects  are used throughout the British  Isles. One Welsh town is a  'mouthful'. It goes like this 'Llan-  fairpwllgwyngyllgerychwyrnd-  robwllgerdyssiliogogogoch'.  In fact, in the English speaking countriesof the Western  world and Australia, few districts are without . their own  particular dialects and colloquialisms.  It was but recently that a  member of parliament in England urged that the spelling be  simplified by the removal of  unecessary leteers and sounds.  Yeah, verily this tree is large  and deeply rooted. Personally,  I hope it has a good sense of  humour enabling it to bear with  fortitude the ridicule it has  brought upon its complicated  self.
