This in all real free dem-  i; ocratic   countries   is   a   great  event, in fact the freedom to  I vote for whom you like is one ,  I of  the   greatest   bulwarks   of  [our freedom, if not the greai-  L est. I arn not including those  icountries with the  one party  system,    nothing ?free    about  those, the only redeeming feature if they have one is that  the voting must be almost compulsory, as the average of those  voting is around. 95%   of" the  voters.  y My object of writing, taking  up free space in this free paper, the Coast News, is more  'directed to the scrutineers in��s  this election, the ��� im;_prtant  part they should play.: It,4s  time the paid staff had digest- .-  >sd the election regulations by  now. Had the Scrutineers play-  it would  have saved   the   expense  of  having   to   have another vote on this bylaw. The  : doings   of   the   first   election  were taken to Vancouver court  The    night   before,   the    then  judge  was  going to have the  ballot  papers   checked  up,, in  some   mysterious   way   these"  ballot papers-got burnt, therefore the only thing the judgo  could   do  under   the   circumstances was to declare the election void. When the writer ���-  of this correspondence went to  vote at^the polling station in  Gibsons/no  scrutineers whatever .were   present,   only   the  two    paid    election    officials.  One angle of the election the  scrutineers   should  check   up,  is the scrutinizing of the  so-  called spoiled ballots/for opin-  writer has seen cases where a  candidate would have Avon an  .'election,   had   these   so-called  ed a more vital part in a School  .'spoiled ballots been properly  Bylaw  Vote  we had in  this  School district a few years ago  checked up. The most common  practice '[ o��   ballots     bejing  thrown out as spoiled, are  those that have two crosses  .marked, one at each- end of  the name of the candidate.  More than one judge in Vancouver has declared these as  genuine ..ballots, bearing double evidence who the voter  wished to vote for. No, your  responsibility in the election is  very important, for while you  may be checking for a certain  candidate, you are really  checking up for all candidates,  arid seeing that the proper regulations are carried out.  Another little reminder for  those voting, which is easily  overlooked, is not to use your  own pen or pencil when marking your ballot, also fold your  ballot paper up securely after  marking it.  I do think polling booths  should be supplied with bright  colored pencils, -color not. usually, used in business, say a  tangerine color.  '        . Independent.  Attentive audience  greets Hugh Clifford  More than 30 persons attended the* political meeting held  by Hugh Clifford, C.C.F. candidate in the Coast-Capilano  riding  Dave Rees, chairman, introduced Mr. Clifford and commented on the fact they 'were  organizing the organized because only the old faithful  were present. He likened the'  two major, political parties as  Tweedledum aftd^Tweedledee,  in that they were striving to  out-promise.each other. These  promises will not be fulfilled  too quickly, he added.  Mi*. Clifford said the Conservative excuse for calling an election because" they were unable to do their work owing to fears of being defeated  n - ���  33 he  at  aims  Tom Hughes, managing director of the S.P.C.A. of B.C.  proved himself a forceful and  witty speaker when he addressed the 33 people who turn  ed out to hear him March 17 in  the United Church Hall, Gibsons.  He first spoke of the appreciation and pleasure of the parent body in the establishment  of this new branch of the society on the peninsula and  promised all possible help. He  then spoke of work being done l  and dealt with such things as  humane slaughtering, neglect  in the transportation of live  istock, cruelty in trapping and  here he talked at some length  on the newly-invented "Coni-  bear" trap which kills ani--  mals in a humane. manner and  spoke of the necessity of haying legislation introduced  which would insure the general use of this method. He also  spoke on S.P.C.A. educational s  work in schools?  Then came a question period  when fireworks flew in all .directions when the. matter of  the use of animals in medical  research was brought up. Mr.  'Hughes stated that the stand  of the society in this matter is  that all animals so used must  be completely anaesthetized  end should never be allowed  to recover consciousness. He  also-made it very'clear that no  . aninial from aii S.P.CA*. shelter^, ever found its way to the  research iaborator^Much^im-  provement had been accomplished in this regard of* recent years, he said. The meeting ended. with a film graphically portraying how the. ho-  land he thought it rather weak.  Liberal prosp^rifty he found  unconvincing as propounded in  the last election and the Conservative attitude towards the  Trans-Canada pipe-line was a  prominent feature of that campaign.

Clifford told of a meeting he  (attended back in the 30's  where a well-educated, young  tman explained that Imperial  preference would solve the unemployment problem of that  time. His talk, Mr. Clifford  said, moved him to turn? towards Socialism.  While 'the words Imperial  preference are dead today, this  is what Mr. Diefenbaker is proposing today and thus "we complete a 25 year cycle. Satin  words of" confidence should  prompt the thought 'is it as  easy as all that.' The C.C.F.'  did not think so. It is not easy  and means a lot of hard work.

After  discussion   of   report-^  ed infractions of village building and zoning by-laws, it was  decided to investigate the non-  . observance of taking out building permits for improvements,  for moving  buildings  without  "������permits  and   the unauthorized  placing of trailers on property  within the  village. The   commissioners   will   report   their  findings to the next meeting.  Commissioner   Gordon   presented quotations covering suggested improvements   for  outside   the  Municipal  Hall   and  after  some   discussion it   was  suggested    further    quotations  be obtained, and that a special  meeting to deal with this matter be  called when the  information is available.  Art Club prepares  scenery for Mikado  (By ihe Student  Council)  To us, "The Mikado" to be  performed Friday night, is not  just a high-school production  of a sparkling, witty musical-  comedy. It is a work bound together by the feeling of everyone in the school. Almost all of  the students have participated.  From the authentic Japanese  scenery by the Art club to the  financial aid from the Students  Council, it is almost solely stu-  denVprodueed. Even those pupils who are nat musi-cally .talented are active bn wardrobe  an<j make-up committees. Still  others will be stage hands or  assist in lighting effects or arrange transportatlion for the  Pender Harbour performance,  Saturday night.  It is unusual for a school  the size of Elphinstone to attempt anything as demanding  as "The Mikado." It is also  unusual to find a group as talented and as willing to work  as those preparing this musical   -  comedy.  The cast is well, chosen with  Gary Butler and Jean Hague  as     the     star-crossed    lovers.   -  Joyce Inglis and Sue Atchison   ���  complete  the   famous   "Three  Little   Maids,"   Lloyd   Burritt  is  properly   imperious  in' his-  '  role.

There are four candidates seeking the Coast-Capilano  seat and they represent the C.C.F., Liberals, Progressive-Conservatives and Social Credit parties.  Hugh Clifford, is representing the CCF. He can be described as a man flying a clean CCF. banner and -wanting to  keep it clean. He is a fair-minded individual able to marshall  his thoughts with clarity even though he may not convince the  majority of his listeners. In the last federal election he polled  5,140 votes in the constituency, 500 in the Sunshine Coast area.  W.H. Payne represents the Progressive-Conservatives. He  has had a tough grind in this campaign and even with the support of up to five cabinet ministers and a considerable amount  of promised public, works he does not appear to be a certainty  for election. He has worked hard and should get some more votes  than last year when he obtained 11,648 ��� 507-on the Sunshine  Coast.  The Social Credit candidate is unknown. He is E. Gallant  and he has not spoken in this area to date. If he obtains the 8,923  votes Mrs. Evelyn Fingarson polled in the last election, 774 of  them coming from the Sunshine Coast area, "he will have performed a political miracle.  The Liberal candidate is James Sinclair, who is fighting  his sixth campaign for re-election. He is well-known and liked.  In the last election Mr. Sinclair polled 16,443 votes of whioh 949  came from the Sunshine Coast area.  . ? If one reviews the figures for the constituency and Sun-  shine^Coast area, one would discover that Mr. Sinclair could be  defeated if his supporters leave it to George to re-elect him. The-  Liberal campaign managers are cautious about uttering words,  signifying victory. Others have done so in the daily press but  the campaign workers are. not being lulled into any feeling that  it is 'in the bag.' ���"'������  Once again the Coast News will take the stand that Mr.  Sinclair is the best man tp be?returned to parliament no matter  which party wins. He will be equally as good in government or  as an opposition member.  *.<  /    -*-ij    j-t. *\-*s  What is the reason?  It will be correct to say most people in the area this side  of Jervis Inlet do not read the Powell River News. The Coast  News gets a copy each week and notes what is going on in the  Powell River area.  The front page of the March 13 issue contained a story  which will interest a few people in 'this area and it concerns the  breakwater. -  Here are some quotes taken from the story and they are  quoted just as published in the Powell River paper:  "Possibilities of additional small boat and pleasure craft  harbour facilities were discussed last week when an engineer  from the federal department of public works met with Reeve  Ray Weaver and Councillor S.A.D. Pike.  "The official, Mr. Blanchard, told the municipal representatives he had been sent to Westview by Public Works Minister Howard Green to investigate small boat harbour facilities  "He stated the investigation was groundwork awaiting decision of the government on a policy of installation of small boat  harbours for exclusive use of pleasure craft'."  That ends the quotation from the 'Powell River News.  The thought that arises is that the village commission of  Gibsons was informed by the commissioner who met Mr. Blanchard, that the department was not interested in pleasure craft  facilities. Perhaps expediency is a Conservative.jewel, too!  The man at the top  A friend, whose office is on the top floor of a certain corporation's building, notes that the language problem is getting  worse in Canada, with so many newcomers from Europe. The old  difficulties between French and English are dwarfed by so many  newly-arrived languages, he says.  For instance, a Latvian -with bales; of money arrived the  other day at his" top-floor office and,insisted on seeing the occupant, who is an executive of the corpOratio^" butf not the presi-  de$i,It turned out the visitor, who had'a biisiriessi appointment'  with the^president, %d ?kiept%insi^-iirig that he'wanted to see,  "The man at the top." ���*-- Th�� Printed Word. .

At the request of the president of the MacKenzie riding  at Westview, I arranged a  meeting of those who had work  ed for the Social Credit candidate in the last federal' election. It was held Feb. 8 at  Sechelt and the meeting was  ananimously in favour of not  running any candidate unless a  really outstanding one' could  be' found. The ^following . day  our decision was given to the  president, of the Coast-Capilano riding in North Vancouver  by a personal call at his place  At the request of the Powell River delegates I was asked to attend the nomination  meeting in North Vancouver  on the night of Feb. 22 so that  I could lay before the meeting  the opinion of this part of the  riding, from Powell River to  Hopkins Landing. The imported chairman would not allow  this but, after the motion was  moved and seconded that a  candidate be selected 'by the  meeting, immediately called  for a vote without giving us  or anyone else the opportunity  to discuss our views.  You, have, therefore, the following facts to consider. First,  Premier Bennett told the provincial house that the meeting which nominated Mel Bryan was a packed one._Second,  all of us from this part of the  riding know that the.meeting  that chose Mrs. Fingarson was  a fake meeting and now we are  not allowed to voice our opinion in the choice of the candidate who advises in your paper  that we should vote for him.  A vote for the Social Credit  candidate in this riding will  be a wasted-vote even if his  backers in North Vancbi|ver  conoeed him about 7% of I the  votes. That surely will not be  any credit to the party.. .The  really big issue in this election Vis "stable government",  not what they have, in Prance,  where they have electioris every few months?

It was before the days  of automobiles, and his father's  horses filled him with admira-  tioin and wonder. It was a proud  day when his dad allowed him  to sit on his knees and hold the  reins. Of course his father had.  control of the reins, but the boy  felt that he was driving and that  the horse would go as he wished.  One Sunday as the family was  driving home from church, with;  the boy holding the reins, it suddenly dawned on him that his  faither was actually" doing the  driving. He turned to his father  and said: "Dad, would you please  let go. I want to take over." The  father agreed, and from that day^  on 'the boy drove "without assistance. Later he became a missionary and a man of strong  character., but he often thought  ���back to that day when he decided to "take over."  *    *    *  The day comes in every boy's  life when he has to take ovfer.?���  He' is compelled to make decisions of his own. It is a critical  time and an important one. In  the Old Testament there is fcht  story of a.boy who had to take  over unexpectedly. He was 20  years of age, and-his name was  Solomon. When his father, King  David died, Solomon was anointed and formally installed on the  throne. He took his new position  seriously for he knew how much  depended upon what he did and  said. A king in those days had  great authority and responsibility. Often a nation under a  weak or evil king plunged headlong to disaster.. On the other  hand, wise leadership meant the  making of a nation.     .  At the threshold of his career  as king, Solomon had to maka  an important decision. The Lord  appeared to him and said: *Ask  what I shall give thee." The  young king realized that his own  future and that of his people  rested upon his answer. A weaker man would have chosen riches  or* wealth or more authority, it  was an age when men craved  such things, and no one would  haye been surprised had Solomon coveted them. But when  Solomon took over, he made a  decision which marked- a high  light in his life. He said: "Give  me now wisdom and knowledge,  that'll may go out and come in  before this people: for who can  judge 'this thy people, that is  so great?'  God was greatly pleased with,  Solomon's choice and promised  'that the things for which he had.  not asked would be added unto  him. ' The first chapiter in the  Second Book Of Chronicles gives  a stirring account; of God's  p'romise to -Solomon when he  took over..  To-day's quotation is by R. P.  Downes* "Children, are the fragile beginnings of mighty ends."

In discussing the-biil Mr. Gargrave said that he quite understood the conflict of problems  involved, in this matter; but he  urged the government to refer  this matter to a committee so  that a plan could be discussed in.  which the government could purchase the ferry system, charging  the cos�� up to consolidated revenue and charge ferry fees to  recoup operating costs only.  Mr. Gargrave said that!*, he felt  that the cost,to the government  would be less than building tiie  equivalent length of highway.  Though the government supported a previous resolution moved  by Mr. Gargrave concerning the  public control of monopoly transportation the government voted  against referring the 1951 Act  to a committee.  Mr. Gaglardi, minister of highways, in supporting the government's position, ;said tha he was  hovmd by the previous conract  signed in 1951 with the old department of public works and the  0  company. He fuifther stated that  he believed in informal negotiations with the company to reduce ferry rates.    9 .

Winding   up   'his   campaign  this    week,    Jimmy    Sinclair.  ��� puiled*' no punches in putting  oh a truly fighting finish.     _  Mr. Sinclair has been sub-  -jected to a highly organized  campaign by the Conservatives  .directed at discrediting him in  the eyes of his own constituents; Both his chief opponent,  Mr. Payne, and the heavy artillery of Conservative cabinet  ministers have spent, a good  deal of their time in Coast-  Capilano deriding Mr. Sinclair's accomplishments and  questioning his right to serve  again;       ..  The last straw came last  week, when Mr. Fleming, longtime parliamentary foe of Mr.  ���Sinclair, and now Conservative minister of finance spent  the best part of an hour in  harsh condemnation of Jinf-  my's record.  Monday night Mr. Sinclair  started at ah 'all-candidate  meeting in North Vancduver.  and lashed back in one of the  most stimulating evenings his  audiences have had.  Tuesday night he spoke in  West Vancouver j: answering  point-by-point the invective,by  Mr. Fleming. By the time he  had finished the audience was:  cheering his every word.  On   Wednesday   night,    he.  . spoke at iPowell River tp an  all* ^hdidate meeting and had  -the wHole hall oh its feet W he  ,tobkra?Mr:-i3ili- Payne, ttard-  Hittihk facts, ���correctionof dis-  fdrted? figures,"  challenges  of  misstatements and accusations  ������"��^������"deli'Serate    misrepresentations on the part of Mr. Payne  punctuated his speech..  Mr. Payne, who attended the  meeting, thus far had not been  exposed to a ''fighting Jimmy"  JH�� lound that? Mr. Sinclair  ���could hit back hard.  ���..., The,reaction ofJ^ various,  audiences was the be^t indication of his effectiveness.

EEC termed  i  The .recent formation of the  European- F^onorijic Commuriity  or '-Comirnon Market" could have,  important - implications for Canada and the rest of ithe ^brld, 'as  well as a profQ-und impact on the  m^ of the union,  ? says tne Bank of Montreal in its.  Business Review for February.  Entitled, "Th e Uhcommou  Market", the b of M review  states, "In the history of modern  civilization, it is hard to find? another instance of nations ' with  such varied interests voluntarily  banding together to form a single  economic cocrr_nuhity oh such a  - large.scale."''''? ���'"-"��� " ���"'?;'  The six nations comprising the  Community ���- Germany, Jthe  Netherlands, Belgium, Luxeni-  ,,..,ibpurg, Fraipce. and.Italy -r hav3  agreed ,to remove all tariffs and  other trade resTxictions-with each  other, in stages, over the next?  12 to 15 years.  This, says tne review, is the  main feature of tiie union as far  ,as the rest of tlie world is concerned, and adds that tariffs on  imports from other countries1 outside the Common Market will be  gradually adjusted "until a uni-  - form tariff structure prevails.  Of significance -to Canada and  certain other. countries is the apparent, intention to continue sup- \  port to the European ifarmer,,'ibhe  B of M states, pointing1 out that?;-,  in 1956, wheat and other grains  accounted for 46 per cent of Canada's exports to nations of the  Common Market.        '  The B of M says that stress  on free competition and provision for common policies in  such> fields as agriculture and  transport: indicate that EEC is  more than a customs union, adding, *.?By the end of the period  of transition, citizen! of the memr?  ber . countries will be free to  move anywhere in - the community for employment and will be  employed on the same terms as  local workers.'.'  Similarly, restrictions on the  movement of capital between  member states will be removed,  although a country may.control  borrowing in its capital markets  by public authorities of another  member. _.,,.  > ',������'���  "As  artificial  barriers-.to  the  free, movement of goods, money'  and peopje are torn dp.wn." the  B of M says, 'itrade within the  area,   which. has already shown :  rapid growth, during i95Q's, will '������  be stimulated.     ���.  "The creation of a large domestic market behind- a_? protective  tariff structure ��� shpuld lead to' -  greater", specialization and more  efficient production, and may also  indlutee more foreign- companies  to establsh branch, plants, or subsidiaries in the Commumte. Just  how quickly and to whaip^tettt  (these jpptehtial advantagl!^. will  be realized remains to be rseen.  "But," concludes the B of, M ?  review, "the prospects are suchi  that other countries, ��� including  the United Kingdom, are actively  exploring the~ possibility of becoming associated with the community in a still larger, and economically, more powerful, Euro- -.  pean Free Trade area.

I wonder2  THE END  Spring Stock  Now at  It was about this time^rumors  started about Sechelt having a  beer parlor. The residents voted  on this project and it passed  providing the beer parlor be  located some distance from Sechelt. This was agreed .. and  Charlie Reda the owner-operator  took over the policeman's house  which is known as Wakefield.  . Doug. (Sgt.) Sutherland of the  provincial police owned Wakefield. He lived there and used  his home as a police office but  under pressure from Charlie  Reda he .sold and it became  Wakefield Inn. The police station was opposite Wakefield and  I believe a little coffee shop has1  taken over the premises. Mr.  Reda had a wonderful business  and it was a pleasure to go to  Wakefield Inn and sip a cool  glass of beer while sitting on  the open verandah overlooking  the Strait of Georgia. What a  wonderful setting for a tavern.  -' The war years rolled on with  not much change in Sechelt.  Work was getting a little better  and a few more people came  to Sechelt and district. After the  war and about 1947 two enterprising men, Bill Morrison and  Jim Parker built a row of stores  which is called the Village Centre. -JL remember watching the  if   business   warranted  such   a  block taking.shape and wondered  large place. It was not long after  the building was completed that  every store was rented.

Jim Parker's jjexib venture was  ithe bank-post foffice block and  this also is a splendid* building  with the bank" and post office  below and offices upstairs.

It  was   in   connection  with  the Rod Cross peacetime program   adopted   in    1919   that  Junior Red Cross was started.  Dr. Winslow of the U.S. was at  the    international    conference  which adopted the idea of promotion of health. He felt that  a health program must begin  in  schools  and proposed that  Red   Cross,   societies   include  school boys and girls in their  ���membership.  ,        The Junior Red Cross as we  know it.today was not officially established in Canada until  1922 when the Red Cross Society Act. was amended by Parliament   to  include   peacetime  activities.     The    Junior    Red  Cross    internationally    has  ���grown to be the world's larg-  ���est     youth    movement     with  about 50,000,000 members. Departments   of   education   offer  <j    every   encouragement   to   the  ^movement because it is designed to give schools a channel  .for education in social awareness,  community  service .and  internatipnail understahding.

Elphinstone Junior Red Cross  consists of 365 members. Organization of the club is difficult because of two factors:  first,'the transportation of pupils by bus makes after school  activities impossible for over  half of the pupils; second, the  departmentalization of a school  splits classes into groups and  makes classroom activity in  Red Cross work difficult, even  though much of the Junior Red  Cross work cpuM be co-curricula^- instead of extra-curricular-  In the one-room school, a  teacher can let her Social  Studies, class organize a Red!

But.let no one  get the' idea that it achieves  nothing. To date we have the  following. projects underway  or completed for this year:  1. A group of girls are acting as nurses' aides m the infirmary. They administer first  aid, keep a record of illness  and treatment, keep the rooina  in good order. Twenty-five  girls take turns, remaining on  duty one. hour each, whenever  a study period falls.  2. A.group of boys are doing; woodwork after school,  making, a, variety of gadgets  for. treatment of spas*jjcs or  cripples trying; to retrain mus-  icfles and limbs; damaged by  paralysis or injury of some  kind.  3. About 60 pupils are  working individually on the  preparation of health kits '���  some to be sent to Korea, some  to Vietnam, where refugee  children are living in the utmost poverty. Each health kit  ���consists of a strong bag' containing a comb, face cloth and  towel, tooth brush and  paste,  soap, and some kind of gift or  toy. Very often the health kit,  when it gets there, is the  child's only property. It must  be a strong, well made bag into which he can put any little  articlee of use which he might  accumulate.  4. A few pupils prepared  the "thermometer" to be used  by the local Senior Red Cross  for measuring its campaign effort.  5. The pupils raised $37 to  send a grocery order and some  cash to a family when in difficulty.  6. Some classes have put on  noon hour entertainment to  raise funds for Red Cross work  7. One group worked on. a  portfolio of pictures of our  area, and a booklet about our  way of life, for a school iri  Puerto Rico in reply to a most  interesting book we have received from them. Another  class did the same type of activity in reply to a book from  a school in New Jersey.  8. The English 93 class  planned a display showing a  typical west coast home. They  prepared  a tape recording of   Coast News, March 27, 1958   7  explanation,   a   model    house  which can be put together on  arrival, and a scrap book of  the various rooms.  9: The music group arranged a.tape recording of Canadian songs for exchange with  another country:  AT  'Garclen ojf Eatin*  SECHELT  Turkey and Ham Dinners  Bring the Family  Durability-Ford Trucks are buHt to take it... aUday., v  every dayf Ituggedry desighedtp give you a lifetime pf?;    -  dependable, low-cost service.

He commented on the use  of advertising gimmicks in this  election, such as John's footprints and Pearson's bowtie  ��� childish gimmicks which  he did not think would influence public thinking.  Respecting trade with China  he said the Liberals and Conservatives had done nothing  but now it was becoming a.  popular theme but it might not  come until-;a CCF. government was elected. He questioned James Sinclair's attitude of  trade first and recognition afterwards and W.H. Payne's  idea that the Chinese were not  suitable people for us to deal  with. He inferred that because  Mr, "Dulles of United States  maintained China should not  be recognized Canada was following the same prejudices because of the U.S. attitude involving trade With Canada.  He was of the opinion China  ���would be an industrial might  in 20 years time.and added  that CCF. policy, was that we  should be friendly towards the  Chinese now. ���?..-���''  On unemployment . he said  any figure produced as representing unemployed should  be multiplied -two-and-a-half  times to get the correct figure  to include those affected by  unemployment taking in wives  and families involved.  To cure unemployment,  ���which he said the CCF. party  was the only party that could  do it, a national investment  board would be set up to direct  investment into those things  'which the people need and not  into such things as Wenner-  Gren development.  The closing down of Brit-  tannia mine was callous. It  should have been taken over  by the federal government and  run by and for the people of  Canada. The 'copper even  though produced at a loss, it  could have been held in collateral until it reached a profitable price. That is what a  CCF. government would have  done. Human, values should  come first, he said.  Referring to the recent Vancouver Sun editorial on "The  long road back for Liberalism''  in which the CCF. was described as a splinter group, and  was not necessary, he said the  CCF. had 179 candidates in  the field. It would be unwise  to say today the CCF. .could  not be the next government.  Discussing Russia, he said  guris were no defence against  the Russian situation,. They had  a powerful economy which  could destroy our free enterprise system if we continued  our policy of arming to the  detriment of other things.  Ralph Webster, campaign  organizer, spoke briefly in support of Mr. Clifford. A collection totalled $12.24.  Turkey dinner  for Clifford  Members and friends of the  CCF on the North Shore turned out 250 strong to greet their  candidate, Hugh Clifford and  enjoy a fine turkey dinner, fol-  lewed by an evening's enter-'  tainment in the Lonsdale Hall,  North   Vancouver,   March   20.  After describing the gloomy  outlook of our fellow men and  women who depended on the  mine at Britannia for a livelihood, Mr. Clifford discussed  the more cheerful subject of  the immediate future of (Socialism.  With a CCF government at  Ottawa, as there very, well  might be after the election, the  Coast-Capilano CCF candidate  -said such an arbitrary action  causing tragedy to the lives  of people, could not have, been  taken.  ^Disc-dssing a recent deal for  tlic^gale of 1,000 Canadian  b*uiltr:Ford Cars arranged by a  Canadian firm for the Red!  Chinese market and subsequently stopped by U.S. intervention, Clifford hoped the  Canadian people would regis-,  ter a solid protest against this  sort of domination.

Chant  chairman of the Commission  announces.  Instructions regarding the  preparation of briefs may be  obtained by writing to Dean  Chant at the University of B.C.  "We will not insist on any standard form for the briefs," Dean'  Chant said, "and briefs which  have already been received  will get full consideration."  The three-man commission,  which was established by the  government in January to investigate education up to the  University level, in all matters  except finances, expects to begin its hearings sometime in  May.  Hearings relating ��to the  briefs will be held throughout  the province later this year.  Only those groups, organizations, or individuals who have  jsubmdttad briefs in advance  will be allowed to speak at the  hearings, Dean Chant said.  Primary purpose of the. hearings will be to allow the com-  imissioners to question those  who have submitted briefs.  Time and place of the hearings will be announced in the  local press, Dean Chant said.
