GREEK  SCHOOL  ADOPTED  Elphinstone High School has  adopted, not a foreign student  but a whole foreign school.  Through the Elphinstone High  School branch of the Junior Red  Cross, the students have adopted and become responsible for  essential school supplies for the  students of the elementary  school Analipsis, Elasson, Thes-  salia, Greece.  Educational facilities in many  parts of Greece are extremely  poor; In' rural; areas even elementary education is almost beyond the reach of many children.  .Teachers ;are : few ���and:; even  where there are classrooms  open, many of the people are  foojppor to pay If or even the most  .basic.school supplies. Few childrenever go; to high school and  so it is most important that as  many as possible receive an elementary education.    >  Typical   families   in   some  of  these areas  live' in one-roomed  houses/without  electricity  and  with   uncertain  water   supplies.  The farm "might consist of three  .. acres pf eroded and overgrazed  landi oiifwhichr perh?^&,v'20 sheepV  and onei cow are raised;^Family  income is perhaps $60 per year.  Elphinstone   High School  will  send to the school a supply of  pencils, scribblers, erasers, rulers, crayons, pens and ink, maps  a volley ball, and a good first  aid kit. This- will enable children  in the school to have a basic  supply of necessary materials,  and many youngsters now not.  attending school will be in a position to do so. The Junior Red  Cross hopes to maintain correspondence with the school so that  information can be exchanged.  Money for this has.been raised by various Junior Red Cross  projects. ' The club  specifically  acknowledges  the  help, of  the  Home~lS-coTioltti.es classes  through their Christmas raffle of -  goodies m&de in the Home, Economics ~ classes. ' This ' year,v  through' co-operation of students "  and  community, $146 was raised for this worthy purpose. Students are looking forward to a  direct contact with their adopted  school.

At this meeting preliminary  arrangements will be made for  the Red Cross drive for funds  which takes place in March. It  is quite likely some more canvassers will be required owing  to former canvassers having  moved away during the year.  Other items of importance will  also be tackled by this meeting.  Gibsons BofT  elects Harvey  4The Family Doctor'  John Harvey of Harvey Funer-  el Home was elected president  of Gibsons and district Board; of  Trade at the annual meeting,  Monday night in the School Hall,  North Road and Sechelt Highway. Charles Mandelkau, Shell  Service ,Station, was named vice-  president.

Owing to the fact there appear-;  ed to be. departmental confusion respecting the parcelling of  808 acres on Mount Elphinstone :  as a park, the board decided, to,  continue: pressure, in Victoria  an;d c have, the matter, straightened':-out.: ,;:l  ,'���_...���_'::.  Chairman Ritchey of Gibsons  council informed the meeting  when a letter was read asking  for increased parking oh. Gower  Point Road from Woods Hardware to Peninsula Cleaners, that  an engineer was being obtained  to check over such a possibility  along j with other matters which  council had under consideration.  When weather permits it, the  board learned, the ditch on the  church side of Sechelt highway  from North Road to Super-Valu  will be moved further in so wider highway can be obtained by  filling in the old ditch.  By letter, E. J. Atlee suggested that a "Come to Gibsons and  see the Sound" slogan be adopted for general purposes in this  area. The idea was turned Over  to   the   Tourist   Committee  Retiring President Walt Nygren reporting on the activities  of the board in the last year  said, federal government plans  were for installation of a 30 ft.  rescue craft to be manned by  the RCMP, appointment ofi'-ri-'  coroner following the departure  o* nr. W. McKee and the completion of a $12 ,000 rock fill at  ine hew' breakwater.   ./ '  Caterers for the dinner were  the Sunshine Coast Caterers. :;  The new officers: were sworn  in by Magistrate, Andy Johnston  Who attended the meeting. with;  Mrs,, Johnston. ' The. magistrate  congratulated the board On the  work it had done during the  last year. After:, the business  meeting, Homer Stevens, secre:  tary of the United Fishermen's  union spoke on his trip to Russia  Metro water  district sought  Stevens talks on Russia  Russian fisheries proved of  great interest to Homer Stevens,  secretary-treasurer of the Fishermen's Union in British Columbia during the trip he made to  Russia some time ago.  Some   70   persons  heard   his  talk and saw his colored pictures  following the Gibsons Board of  Trade meeting Monday, night, in  . v. the school halt. There"were-about-*  40 at the dinner-and the other  -t 30 appeared after; .the dinner to  " hear Mr. Stevens.  Mr. Stevens explained how in  a short period, 15. days, he covered an area in Russia stretching from Murmansk in the Arctic circle to Yalta in the south,  7,000 miles..  Mr. Stevens was introduced by  Dal Triggs and'also thanked by  Mr. Triggs and i the new; board:  president, John Harvey.  The varied methods the Russians used to get the most out of  the fishing resources were an  eye-opener. Their institutes were  forever striving to find ways of  using ail fish products to the  fullest extent, Mr. Stevens said.  In fact the Russians would not  use herring for reduction.to oils,  fertilizer or animal foods. They  are allowed to mature in the  sea. Starting with the hatching  system he found they were making great strides and had introduced Pacific, salmon into the -  North Atlantic waters apparently successfully. As to actual fishing methods he described one  method, the suction system  *" which had produced, good, harvests.- .-  This method had lights around  the vacuum funnel which attracted, the fish in the depths.; When ;  the area had become saturated  they turned on the vacuum and  sucked them into the trawler.  The vessels. they used in some  cases were much larger and better equipped, even to a complete  canning factory. ���>  They had come around to the  packing of small fish by eliminating manual labor yet obtaining  the same effect as head-to-tail  packing in cans. Submarines  were used to trace fish habits  and locate feeding grounds so  the information could be used to  advantage.  The institutes, Mr. Stevens  said, supplied courses for boat  crews and officers, which enabl-.  ed them to be. more efficient in  their work. At the Murmansk  fisheries he found an endless variety of fish, prepared in various  ways and many still.in the experimental stage. Apparently  little was. wasted. Their machinery was not all of the most up.  to-date but improvements were  being sought continually.  GUIDES BAKE SALE  Starting at 10 a.m. on Feb.  2 in the United church hall  in Gibsons a sale of homemade  pies, bread and . buns will be  held by Gibsons Girl Guide association.  One of the trawjers^be ,.saw,  was of huge. size^f^$r^BS^vith  a 2,000 hp. engine with auxiliaries for other power. This vessel,  was a complete cannery which  could process up to 1,700 tons.  The crew numbered 96.  Fishermen were paid better  than land workers, had a. pension scheme, arrest camp. The  'Tften'-were1 pant'on^a' share basis'  according to responsibility. He  also told of a 12,000 ton mother  ship which could process 40,000  barrels of herring. -  The Russians had two smoked cures, one hot and the other  cold smoke. One thing about  fish plants on shore he 'noted  was that they were spotlessly  clean with tiled floors and walls.  Mr. Stevens said he found the  Russian populace generally weref  not anxious for any war. There-  was: a tremendous desire to;  avoid another hplocast.  *&OD    IS   A   WONDERFUL  ARCHITECT  - CR6ATIN&   EARS  AT   JUST   THE    RIGHT JPOlNTS  TO  HOLD   GLASSES.  50 mothers  |o see you  ^ Are  you   ready   to   help   the  ; -' parching  Mothers?

Sneddon and B: Anderson  On Saturday, Jan. 21, Ken  Sneddon, Brian Anderson, Jeff  Oram, Keith Rhodes and Patrick McCartney, members of  the Falcon Patrol, 1st Gibsons  Scout Troop, and winners of a  recent competition, visited  Grouse Mountain under supervision of Scoutmaster Mr. H. J.  Bafendregt.  We left Langdale at 9:20 a.m.  and after a scenic drive along  the Upper Levels Highway  through North Vancouver, we arrived at the foot of the hist  chair lift. We were all bursting  with excitement as it was our  first visit and ride on a chair  lift.  As we progressed up the mountain side we looked back to see  what seemed like a solid field  of   snow   covering   Vancouver.  Soon our attention was drawn  to the Chalets which bordered  the forest "edge on both sides of  the lift up to the second station.  There we changed to a much  newer chair lift. After leaving  the second station we had our  attention drawn to the snow  which blanketed the earth below.!  We were all very thrilled. We  were all filled with excitement  as we left the chair lift and went  sprawling in the snow.  Brian's toboggan was soon put  to good use, after a few rides  we visited the Chateau, and had  lunch. That is when we learned  the temperature was 106 degrees  in the shaded porch of the Chateau.  After lunch once' again we  went tobogganing, and snowball  fighting, of which Mr. Baren-  dregt took movies. We then  moved on and found a more ex  citing place to have toboggan  races, then we went over to the  ski-low to watch the skiers being towed up the mountain side.  We hiked on further until we  came to a place called Devil's  Leap, then we continued on until we found another toboggan  run and had another tobogganing competition.  "We returned to the Chateau  and rested until 4:30 p.m. then  we took the Eft back down the  mountain at which time we were  able to view the beautiful sunset which seemed to change the  whole atmosphere.  On <our way home we visited  the Cleveland Dam but couldn't  see all of it because of fog. We  then proceeded to Horseshoe  Bay and had supper. We arrived at Langdale at 9 p.m. very  tired after a very enjoyable day.  Anna  Wilander  Anna Liisa Wilander, 89, who-  had lived in Gibsons 55 years,,  died in Vancouver Jan. 18 and!  was buried Sat., Jan. 21 at 2  p.m. with a funeral service conducted by Rev. David Donaldson  in Gibsons United Church and  graveside rites in Mount Elphinstone cemetery at the family  plot.  Mrs. Wilander was known by  all old-timers of this area. She  leaves a daughter, Mrs. J. M.  Campbell of Vancouver and a  son, William A. now teaching in  France. There are four grandchildren and five great grandchildren.  Anna ,\vas born in Finland on  Nov. 22, 1871. She came to New  York as a young woman and ���  there married Andrew. They  moved to Sointula on Malcolm  Island where she was the first  woman settler. Leaving there,  they went to San Francisco for  a short while.  They then moved to Gibsons,  55 years ago. Here they operated  a dairy farm.  Her husband was a carpenter ���  by trade and was responsible for  quite a few of the local buildings. He also helped build most  of the shingle bolt flumes in this  area.  Anna had two children, a son  William and a daughter Gertrude. She was also a midwife  and brought other babies into  the world.  Cloth needed  The Order of Elastern Star.  Cancer station at Roberts Creek  . has sent out an appeal for used  cloth which can be made into  medical dressings. Flannelette,  Sheetings, pillow cases and  such like not including rayon  and silks are acceptable.  Donations can be left at the  home of Mrs. Doris Drummond,  Renee's Dress shop in Gibsons,  Mrs. Beana Bing, Wilson. Creek,  Mrs. Edna Wakefield at Sechelt  and Mrs. J. A. Donnelly, Arbutus Place, Middlepoint. An-  otthier way would be to give it  to the Peninsula Cleaners driver when he calls. .     ���. ^^ ;7 t* 'v r, *T '��)  Coast News, Jan. 26, 1961.

A generous spirit  Sechelt Indian band's desire to donate land for construction of  a hospital is worthy of commendation not only by the Coast News  but by every person living in this area.  The Indian band at its general council meeting voted unanimously for the turning over of 11 acres of land opposite the Indian School  in Sechelt and they did so with much less argument-than would have  taken place at any meeting organized by people of this area not of  the Indian race.  Members of the Hospital committee are undoubtedly pleased at  this happy turn of events and will await the official turnover of the  property through the federal Indian department. When it comes .to  public relations members of Sechelt Indian band need take no back  seat. Their act was voluntary and without strings, attached.-The value of the property is secondary. They realize the area needs a hospital and have not hesitated in coming forward with some land which  can be described quite safely as a most logical piece of property. It  is central comparing its location to both ends of the area, Port Mellon  andE^^ ^  Gn'Tjehaff^p^ public the Coast News offers deep thanks  to the'band with the hope the rest of the population will in turn offer  the same generous - response to the requirements of the hospital as  they arise.  Chief Charles Craigan and the Sechelt band do not look for any  public thanks for the action of the band but it would not be out or  order for all associations including boards of trade, village councils  and others to offer their congratulations to the band for their generous action.  Hill-Tout, .from examination  of:old village sites, .estimated  that the Salish population,  which;, he found to be^'aboivt  12,000 in 1898, was ho more  than one-fifth of what' it;..;had  ; been in -1808^ when Simon  Fraser visited the coast. Smallpox caused "the greatest,-depopulation, almost completely wiping  out   some   villages.  Although both are classed as  Coast Salish ethnically, Indians  of Burrard Inlet���Howe Sound  and those of Sechelt ��� Pender  Harbor     differ     linguistically.  The   Gibsons   group  definitely  belonged to the Squaniislhi tribe.  In fact, it was believed by early  homesteaders who knew them  that they were mainly an outpost for the  central Squamish  village,    their    job    being    to  watch for invaders through the  West Howe Sound gap. Professor Hill-tout believed that the  Sechelts,   or   ' *Sisfoalhs,''   were  ethnically related to the Lillo-  bet   people,   but   linguistically  Clarence Joe  states that they  are   unique;    that   the  Sechelt  dialect is spoken nowhere else.  Quite    likely   there   was   little  contact between the peoples of  Gibsons   and  Sechelt  in   very  early days.  While these peoples undoubtedly ihad permanent villages, at  least some members of the  tribes moved about in search  of foods not always procurable  at home. So the Sechelt group  ranged up and down Sechelt  Inlet, and the Gibsons group.,  or Chek-Welps, voyaged ufj  and down Howe Sound and put  into the Strait of Georgia. The  Sechelt tribe also came down  the coast as far as the mouths  of Chapman (Mission) : Creek  and to Roberts Creek, which,  says Billy Roberts, was known  to them as "Fat-Fish Creek."  Berries, clams, fish 'and cer-  FROM THEV  Printed  ord  ADVICE   TO   GOVERNMENTS  tain roots were of course the  staple foods sought. Today Indians fartther up the coast still  smoke and sun-dry salmon,  and preserve salmon-berries by  their age-old methods. Clam's  were undoubtedly found in  abundance at the mouths of  most creek e, particularly  around Kleiridale and at Gibsons. They were skilful in the  construction and < use. of the ^dugout canoe, their chief-mode of  travel. The Soames family still  has possession of a wooden  wedge and a steel adze used by  "Doctor" Johnson; last of the  Chek-Welps to be buried in  the cemetery at the mouth of  Granthams Creek.  This spot, and what are now  known as-Shelter Islands, just  west of Keats Island, seem to  have, been used almost exclusively as' burial grounds, and  not as places of residence.  We have little record -K of  tribal life as it existed^ here  prior to the coming of the1 first  Europeans? We know, - *as - already mentioned here, theVfqqds  of the Indians. We ���-. know\itfiat  they lived in homes generally.  made of split cedar, some "private and some communal,  reaching lengths of hundreds  of feet. -We know���; that4they  were adept ���': at;���* making -'.boxes  of cedar wood and baskets of  cedar   roots.  Prepared by the Research Staff of  ENCYCLOPEDIA   CANADIANA  Age no drawback  More and more companies are doing away with the idea that an  employee must retire at age 65, according to an announcement by  the American Medical Association Committee on Aging. The statement said: "There is no scientific ., . reason for selecting 65 as the  magic number separating the productive from the non-productive,  the healtny from the unhealthy." The statement has the support of  the Health League of Canada's committee on Gerontology, which has  Ibeen studying problems of the aged for; some years.  The above, from the Health League of Canada, is another example of what one could class as part of planned economy. As the  quotation notes, why is 65 the magic number? There are individuals  who are old at 50 and others young at 65.  Back in the 1940's it became a standard of conformity. In the  meantime the medical fraternity has prolonged life while the usefulness of the worker has been limited.  On would suspect with prolonged life, the use of a useable employee would have added value. There is also the argument that with  the present level of unemployment the age limit for work should be  reduced to 60. This would mean under welfare state objectives, that  taxes would go up ih order that pension and other benefits could go  to a  larger number of people. But is this the answer? Definitely not!  The answer might rest in allowing the general public to use more  of its own money in its own way. The federal government maintains  it is the largest spender in the dominion. The provincial governments  could also be classed as the largest spenders in their own areas.  With all forms of government absorbing about eight-and-a-half  sillion dollars of total national income perhaps if one-quarter of that .  amount was channelled into industry direct from the pockets of the  taxpayer, it might help. However some economist would cut the argument to shreds, no doubt, but it is something for thinkers to work  on. '  With more secondary industries in Canada there would be more  work for the young as well as the 65 and older. As long as a man is  capable of work there should be someplace for him to hang his hat,  roll up his sleeves and regard the welfare state as something for  those who really must exist by that means.  Springtime in February  (By  Les Peterson)  There is rain outside, but the clammy tide  Of moisture cannot wane  The friendly heat which the sun's rays mete  When spring is here again.  The tree is bare, but a happy pair  Of sparrows lets us know  That throughout the days the sun's warm rays  Will make the green leaves grow.  O Winter Wind, though you have sinned,  And scattered sorrow far,  To us the spring more joy shall bring  For having borne your scar. '    .  Many fine things can be said  for   the  civil service.  The  lack  of: competent   permanent   staffers in some of the new African  countries is  a current  example  of the need for a  civil service.  Then -Tthere vis --the   celebrated?  case  of  India,   where' the   civil  service  proved extremely useful  in   the   change-over  of   governmental    authority.    In    France,  which     invented      bureaucracy  along with love and a good part  of   the   world's   beauty,   things  have been kept going on numerous occasions, to the extent they  were then' kept going, by the civil service.  The rise of the welfare state  has meant that a lot of extra  people have been needed in the  civil service to administer the  added work and to get the actual chores done. Even if businesslike methods were applied  by government, the new demands, largely for moving pieces of paper around and back  and forth, would likely cause  the civil service to keep on. ex-,  panding. As the people engaged  in this particular part of the  bureaucracy are not notably contributing to any increased productivity, the rate of increase  to the state's payroll is an  alarming undertow in the economy.  There is a chronic suspicion  on the part of some voters that  governments do not try as hard  as they might to resist increases in the numbers of civil servants engaged. This suspicion is  probably founded on the deeper  one that politicians like to have  more and more jobs to hand out  to their  party workers.  It would be a happy day for  taxpayers if governments could  see that giving jobs to party  workers is not eventually a good  thing for the party. What happens is that the useful partisan,  when provided with a government job, is barred from open  toil for the party. In this way  a party in power tends to lose  the valuable assistance of more  and more people. In the rise and  fall of political -parties, this  down-dragging factor has to be  given consideration. The best interest of a government is to keep  its able and active adherents  free from the civil service and  out where they can take a more  open part in winning elections.  What  is Ihe second largest  river on the Pacific?  The Columbia River, whose  tremendous power potential is  likely to be harnessed within  the next few years, is the second largest river on the Pacific slope of North America:  (Largest is the  Yukon   River.)  Tne Columbia rises in Lake Columbia, a small Rocky Mountain laKe in the Kootenay district of British Columbia, fidws  north at first until it doubles  round north of the Selkirk  Range, then flows south through!  the Arrow -Lakes and across  'the international boundary to  its mouth on the U.S. west  coast. Its total length is about  1150 miles, of wfiich 4o9 miles  are in Canada.  The river has a total fall of  26ou feet, of which 1360 feet  are in uanada. it.drains an  axea of nearly, ,260,000 square  miles; 38,000 square miles 6i  this' are in Canada.

In 1944 he was appointed commander-in-chief of  the Allied armies in Italy and  promoted to the rank of field  marshal.  Alexander was appointed  Governor General of Canada in  August 1945, a position he filled, including two extensions  at the request of the Canadian  government, until early 1952,  wifeen he returned to the United Kingdom to become minister  of national defence. Later that  year he was created Earl Alexander of Tunis.  Which Canadian town has a  Latin name?      .  Granum, Alta., a town 93  miles south of Calgary and 15  ^ miles north of Fort Macleod.  As a market centre for an extensive wheat-growing area,  the community was given the  Latin name for grain, at the  suggestion of Malcolm Mackenzie, M.P. It was incorporated in 1910. Prior to taking the  name of Granum the community had been known as Leavings, because the old Calgary-  Fort Macleod trail left Willow  Creek at this point.  When  was, Canada's -first anti-  ccorjbinos act passed?  In. 1889,, a  year  before  the  passage of  the .Sherman . Anti:  Trust Act in the  U.S.,   parliament passed an act "to declare  the law relating -to conspiracies  : arid  combinations  in   restraint  of trade, and to provide penalties, for   the : violation , of  the  same." This, act made it a misdemeanor to conspire, combine,  agree    or    arrange    with    any  other   person   "unlawfully" to  limit ."unduly" the production,  to enhance "unreasonably" the  price or  to lessen competition  on  the   production  or- sale of.  any commodity. -  ,In 1892 this act b^"r^<��-a section of the Criminal C^rle a"d  the offence was rnsde an indictable one. Since 1900, when tti&  word   "unlawfully"   was  omitted, it has remained subsantial-  ly   unchanged.  It  now   constitutes section 498 : of the Criminal Code.

Japan now ranks as  the world's fifth largest nation,  following China, India, Russia  and the United States in that  order. The population of Tokyo,  the world's largest city, reach-  9,675,601. This is an increase  of 1,638,517 persons or 20 percent over the city's population  since the last census.

Health League of Canada figures show that so far  only 74 Canadian communities  have adopted  the practice.  \  WILDLIFE AND GRASSLAND  Wild animal life has its  value to grassland areas. Coy*  otes and hawks help to keep  down the numbers of burrowing animals. Burrowing animals  to some extent help to mix,  loosen, drain and fertilize the  soil. Birds help to protect grasses against insects.  CLEAR WATER  Here is a helpful hint for  when you go, camping and are  bothered bymuddy or apparently undrihkabie water.

During the (1959-60 session  5786 awards totalling $1,337,-  73a were made, compared to  3381 awards totalling $867,399  during the previous year.  Dean Walter Gage, awards  committee chairman said the  number of awards made does  not represent the number of individuals assisted since some  , students receive more than one  award. About half of the 1959  60 total was in loans which will  be repaid.  During the 1959-60 session  students received awards from  six principal sources:  University special bufsariea  and named bursaries -��� 1052  awards Tor a total of $159,-  122.50.  Fellowships, scholarships and  prizes ��� 834 awards for a total  of $251,419.59.  Loan funds to be repaid ���  901 awards for a total of $266,-  338.  Money from the student aid  loan fund was distributed to  841 students for a total of $396,-  420.  Government of B.C. scholarships for first and second class  students v/ere awarded to 1540  persons for a total of $202,788.  Government of B.C. bursaries  to deserving students were  awarded to 528 individuals for  a total of $61,650.  A second set of figures released by the board shows that  endowment funds for scholarships, bursaries, prizes, and  loans have more than doubled  during the period from 1955 to  1960.  In 1955 the total amount invested for awards was $700,-  372.18. In 1960 the amount invested was $1,508,310.17 ��� an  increase of $807,843.14.  more humane  Passage of the Humane Slaugh  ter of Animals for Food Act followed a report by the Joint Committee on Improved Methods of  Slaughtering. This committee in  1959 reported to the house of  commons -that there was room  for improvement in the handling  of animals prior to slaughter.  Recommendations on these  subjects were embodied in the  Act along with the main recommendations for. stunning before  killing or hanging.  All   .meat-packing     establishments  . concerned    have     now  complied -with, the requirements  of    the    Humane . Slaughter   of  Food. Animals Act, reported Dr.  C.   K.

While   other    regulations   became effective at the beginning  of I960, those applicable to sheep  swine and kosher killings were  not brought into force, until December 1, 1960, in order to give  plant owners the time to convert  , to a new operation where necessary.   .. ,���. .  ^ While some plants have accept  ed humane methods of operation  for years many have suspended   ���  or  partially  suspended  animals  for slaughter prior to rendering  them unconscious and considerable  adjustment was necessary  when this was forbidden by the  Act.

SNAKE   FACTS  A current belief is that  snakes "hypnotize" their prey  or that the unhappy victim is  so transfixed by fear that it  is easily taken by the reptile.  The basis of this myth probably  is found in the fact that snakes'  eyes, being without lids, have  a fixed look resembling that  wihdch a hypnotist is supposed  to have. As a matter, of fact,  in most cases the small bird,  mammal, or other animal which  falls prey to a snake probably  does not sense danger until it  is actually seized.  In connection with rattlesnakes, it is believed by some  that thea* reptiles can leap a  r^nsideraba distance to strike  their prey. Experiments show,  however, that a snake cannot  r.trike beyond' its own length;  in f>ct. the distance is usually  mufh lesi since a<? a rule *he  animal strikes from a coiled  position.

From the opening number,  Benjamin Britten's Ceremony of  Carols, to the final encore the  singers were delightful. The  opening depicted a processional  with the Singers bearing red-  shaded candies, also featured1 in  the recessional. '..  The Ceremony of Carols gave  the choir plenty of scope as they  covered a wide range of style  and mood.  Verdi's Hymn to the Virgin developed some of the compassion  and majestic greatness. of the  theme and offered choir singers,  present and past, moments of  pleasure.  The third section of the program were, songs written by  composers such as Hugh Robert-  on, Dunhill, Wood and Martin  Bank. It was Martin Bank's "I  Know a Bank" which struck the  writer as being a gem, not only  as an idea for a song but in the  manner in which it was sung.  The Brahms Zigeunerleider  contained a varied assortment of  songs of which the Brauner  Bursche number where a dark-  eyed lad kisses his. ��� blue:eyed  sweetheart as he whirls her off  to a dance, was outstanding.  La Nnife by. ;Gamille Saint-  Saens, dealing with the mystery  of night, soft' breezes, arid perfume of flowers in a moonlit gar?  den, should be heard again to  enable the listener to capture the  mood. The choir much better  versed in the nuances" of the  words and music than its listeners were, had the advantage.  The final program number,  Poulenc's Litanies a la Vierge  Noire appeared to be one of the  more easy to listen to church  works by.thisi French, composer..  It gave the choir great scope for  the. fine �� voices making up the  ensemble. -. ��� \>     ... !  . Any comment on the perform- \  ance should not "overlook the '  brilliant piano accompaniment ���  by Phyllis Schujdt and the flute ;  obligato by Susan Harris.

In desperation parents of school '  age youngsters  often invest  in  a mechanical device which  rings a warning as soon as tha  child starts to urinate. This is-  helpful in the case of some  older youngsters. The boy or  girl becomes wide awake and  goes to the toilet himself or herself.  But if the child's difficulty  in keeping dry has a psychological origin, it is of vital importance that he be given help  not only with bladder control,  but also with the fears or anxieties  which  are  troubling him:  ' ^r*        ^r*       ^r* - .  Sometimes too much bladder  control is expected of a little  child; It may-be comforting to  know that bed-wetting, or the  problem of "enuresis" is one  which puzzles many parents.

At two years of age  20 to 35 percent of youngsters  are not yet able to keep dry at  night. At 18 months, 70 percent of little tots still have v/et  beds and daytime accidents,  too.

Some doctors suggest, salt on  evening, meals foods to help retain fluids in the body during  the'��� ."night. The suckling of a  small ice cube relieves thirst.  Some parents waken a child  in the evening at the same time  each night and take him to the  toilet. They praise him vhen he  co-operates willingly and keeps  his bed dry.  #    *���..#���  A number of mothers have  stimulated their child's pride  in dry beds by using a chart on  their walls.
