So leave on your  lights!     ���  Gibsons and District Centennial Committee is approaching  the final stage of it�� work for  Centennial year and a brief  summary of the work accomplished over the past 18 months  should be of interest to the  community.  Provincial grants were applied for and obtained on behalf  of this district by the committee. The initial 40c per capita  grant, which amounted to  $750.80, as received and combined with funds on hand  amounting to $340.98 gave the  committee a total of $1,101.78  with which? to sponsor various  Centennial Year celebrations.  The Historical Caravan was  one  of these events and  was"  supplied free of expence by the  Provincial, Committee; the July  1 celebration,  including water?  sports, children's; track events,;  the   parade,   dance?  and   fireworks, was paid for from these  f unds,i  and the  Mart   Kenny ?  dance which takes place Oct.?  28 at the High School Auditorium is the fihalbig event <if  this Centeriniail Year. The com--  mittee  expects to have stiffi-?  cient funds on hand after this7,  event to underwrite next year's  July 1 celebration.  The second provincial grant,  on a _0c per capita basi?, was  paid to th ecommittee upon  their evidence they had raised  an.equal sum from the district.  In other words t0 obtain the  second grant amounting to approximately $1000, the committee had "to prove it had an equal sum available. These funds  were earmarked for the district's Centennial project which  after some discussion, was finally decided to be the establishment of a 15 acre recreational, park on the site of, and  including, the Brothers' Memorial Park.  The Centennial committee  did not feel a general canvass  of this district in the spring of  1958 would be advisable in  view of recent unemployment  in the logging and pulp industries, so, in order to raise the  necessary money to match the  government grant, the appeal  for funds was confined to local  clubs and organizations and to  large firms from Vancouver  and elsewhere who do business  in this area.  Tiie response from both these  sources was gratifying and a  total' of $1633.35 was raised,  which included some donations  from individuals who, though  they had not been approached  for a donation, volunteered to  support the committee's effort.  With these funds and the provincial grant received, the com-  antes  C&(| COVERGE of community affairs was highlighted last  weejf at the annual convention  of l the B.C. Division Canadian  Weekly? ?

The present development of  the civilized world is ,probably  due more to the fact that man  can record his thoughts and  ideas on paper than on any other  single factor.  at Turkey Shoot  A successful Turkey Shoot  was held at the Sechelt Rod  and Gun Club grounds at Wilson Creek on Sun., Oct. 5-_The  variety of competition included .22 bulls-eye and lucky targets, trap shooting and snipe  shooting for shotgun enthusiasts and 100 yard targets for  those with centre fire, large  rifles.  Winners of the turkeys were:  large rifle, Ted Chambers, Sechelt and Dick Gray, Wilson  Creek, trap and snipe shooting, Ralf 'Pilkington, Egmont.  Stan Tyson, Wilson Creek and  George Miller, Sechelt, Jack  Clements, Gibsons (twice) and  Fred Shuett, Sechelt; .22 bulls-  eye, Jack Clements, Gibsons  and Roy Erickson, Sechelt;  lucky targets, Dan Currie, Selma Park; Moira Clements, Gibsons and Phil Deleenheer, West  Sechelt; dice roll, Teddy Os-  bore, Morgan -Thompson and  Al Fox, all of Sechelt.  The ladies of the club served  refreshments as they are raising, funds to add to the stock  of kitchen utensil��. They are  interested in having anyone  give them Nabob coupons for  which they,hope to get a coffee urn.  The next activity of the club  is a social evening for its. members and their wives on Saturday, Oct. 18.  Many people contacted were  unfamiliar with the Peninsula  Overture Concert Association  and the work it does. The Association is made up of members .who hold season tickets to  a1 musical concert series comprising at least three concerts.  The concerts, which are held  in Elphinstone High School  Auditorium, feature well  known musicians currently per  forming on radio, IV., opera,  or stage in Canada and the  United States.  The Peninsula Overture Concert Association is truly a "Pen  insula" venture since it draws  members from every community from Pender Harbour to  Port Mellon. The concerts are  varied, ranging from violin  solos to woodwind groups to  vocalists to vocal groups. Far  from being stuffy and formal,  the concerts are enjoyable and  suited to all tastes.  Since the annual budget for  artists depends on the success  of the membership drive, it  follows that the more members  joining the association, the  more and better will be the  concerts. Admission is by season ticket only, which costs  $6 plus 60c tax for adults and  $3 plus 30c tax for children for  a minimum  of three concerts.  Memberships may be obtained from Mr. N.R. McKibbin in  Gibsons, Parkers Hardware in  Sechelt, or by contacting Mr.  L.R. Cloke, Box 242, Gibsons,  who will arrange for a canvasser to call.  BARGAIN  RATES  ��� There is a greater chance of  winning the $50 prize at the  Bingo Binge in the School Hall  Thursday nights each week *  now that bargain rates have  been made a part of the evenings proceedings, officials report. It was so close to being  won last week that officials  marvelled at the fa*ct it is available for some winner this week  mittee was able to purchase  the 10 acres of park land which  combined with the original  five-acre Brothers' Memorial  Park, gives the district 15 acres  for development and use.  This 15-acre tract will be  classed in some respects as a  Provincial park as it comes under trusteeship of five . local:  persons responsible to the provincial ministry of recreation  and conservation. This in no  way interferes with development of the park by local organizations for locai purposes  but gives the added advantage  of benefits available under the-  ministry of recreation and conservation.  A letter received from the  Hon. Earle C. Westwood, minister of this department, warmly commends the Centennial  Committee for its interest in  the establishment of this community park area and members  of the committee when they,  visited Victoria in this connection were assured by Mr. West-,  wood of the co-operation of his,  department. The members of  the committee also called upon  the Hon. Mr. Gagliardi in respect to a road along the boundary of the park property running from the Sechelt highway  to the Reid Road and work on  this roadway is now in progress.  ���While efforts to  dat^ have  been confined  to purchase of  the park property and raising  of funds to do so and to qualify  for the provincial grant, there  remains much to be done in developing this park area so that  it can be made use of by the  people    of    this    community.  Some  clearing has been done  ��� but much more remains to do  and the entire  area -must  be*  fenced as soon? as funds are available.  ....ZTteQQShs .tib^vPubUc-spirited.  cd^operation  and .help   of  all  the local  clubs  and organizations, a one day drive will be "  htiade on Oct. 15, during which ,  it  is  hoped   that a   thorough  door-to-door    canvara    of   the  area will be made. Help from  organizations   in   this   project  has   been  generous  and   they  now   look   to   the   individual  members of the community to  receive their canvassers just as '  generously.  Work on the park is�� planned '  to go forward in the next few  weeks and the extent of that  work will depend, entirely on :  the response by each individual  to the drive  for funds. Local  labor   and equipment  will be  used and to some small extent  the development of this park .  can provide some relief to lo-  cal unemployment.  The Kinsmen Club of Gibsons has generously placed its organization  at the service of the   Centen-  "nial Committee for this drive  for funds and all other organizations  will   be   giving  their  rssistance. Oct. 15 is the date,  a real community park is the  objective, so give the canvasser  at your door a generous reception.  Mrs. A. Sims  PTA president  Elphinstone PTA met Sept.  29 in the High School Library  with retiring president Cliff  Oviatt in the chair.

The written word  All means of communication are becoming ever more important to the daily lives of Canadians. Radio and Television  have taken a valuable place in our lives. By these means, we are  kept aware of national and international developments and  trends.  For many of us, however, nothing will ever quite replace  the written word. Publications, good and bad, flood the market.  Many are a most valuable means of enjoyment and information.  Among this mass of publications, the weekly newspaper plays an  important part.  The strength of a nation does not lie in governments and  organizations alone, but in the calibre of small communities of  which the nation is built. These groups, each with individual  needs and interests in addition to the need to know the world  picture, must be interested in the activities of their community.  Here the weekly newspaper carries a great deal of responsibility.  They publish news and items of local interest and editorials on  local problems and give an opportunity to the public to voice  their views.  Thus a good weekly gives a picture of the community it  serves and the whole is a picture of Canadian life and problems.  Even the personals, so often a part of the weekly newspaper, give  us a picture of the joys and sorrows of our neighbors, which we  can share, thus strengthening community goodwill which is, in  turn, the goodwill of the nation.  On behalf of the Federated Womens' Institutes of Canada,  I am happy, during Canadian Weekly Newspaper week, to have  this opportunity to congratulate the Weekly Newspapers Association on the work they are doing; to thank them for publicity afforded our organization, and to wish you all success in the future.  Mrs. Keith Rand, president,  Federated Women's Institutes of Canada.  Sweeping denunciations  Sophisticated readers of newspapers are accustomed to  read many news stories with a degree of scepticism. This is no  reflection on the honesty of the papers, which usually pride  themselves on accuracy and achieve it as far as possible. It means  that the sophisticated reader can distinguish between a story for  which the newspaper takes full responsibility and one that is  merely a report of what someone has said.  Thus the fact that a popular preacher in Judea has chosen  to denounce the goings on in Sodom and Gomorrah or that the  head of some board ofTevangelism has called down fire on the  head of the inhabitants of Nineveh for alleged misbehavior is  not really evidence against those communities;. A judcious reader will recognize that his paper treated the statement as news  because it was made, not because there was necessarily any  truth in it. The uncritical reader will accept the statement as  true, because he saw it in the papers.  Latter-day prophets, who seem to prefer preachng in the  papers to preaching in their pulpits, and do not wholly despise  the frequent sight of their names on the front pages, may not  always pause to consider the unhappiness they may bring to innocent people by their sweeping denunciations of whole communities., Sodom and Gomorrah might have been saved if ten  righteous people could have been found among the inhabitants  and apparently the -wickedness of Nineveh was greatly exaggerated. To the regret of Jonah, a typically priggish prophet, Nineveh was spared on the grounds that it icontained "more than six-  score thousand persons that cannot discern between their right  hand and their left hand; and also much cattle."  Observers of automobile drivers in metropolitan cities!  may agree that those cities have an equal claim to salvation.  ��� The Printed Word  Sunshine Coast Tourist Association  GENERAL MEETING  SUNDAY, OCT. 19-1 p.m  AT  DANNY'S   DINING   ROOM  ASSOCIATE MEMBERS WELCOME TO AIR THEIR VIEWS  SECHELT MOTOR  LTD.  Due to-changes in the time of departure of Blaclc Ball  Ferries Ltd., a new time schedule, EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 1st. 1958 is being filed with the Public Utilities  Commission of British Columbia.  Copies of the proposed time schedule will be on file at  the main office of the Company at Sechelt, the terminal  depots of Vancouver, Powell River and the Express office  at Gibsons.  This application is subject to the conserib of the Public  Utilities Commission and any objection to same may be  filed with the Superintendent of Motor Carriers, Public  Utilities Commission, Vancouver, B.C. on or before  October 23rd 1958.  SECHELT MOTOR TRANSPORT LTD.  G. E. HOPKINS,  Manager,  (By Lester Peterson)  Newspapers and magazines  read by earliest settlers ox tnis  area had to be imported from  '.outside". In 1876, ten years  before George Gibson arrived  on West Howe Sound, and  when only nameless loggers  might have read its contents,  Co-Decks ���'Moodyville Tickler" appeared at the first sawmill at what is now North Vancouver. Mrs. Arnie Lien, of  Port Mellon, granddaughter of  Mr. Colbeck, possesses a photostat copy of one issue of this  early paper.  Three tiny one-sheet papers,  the "Vancouver Herald", the  "Vancouver News" and the  "Vancouver Advertiser" came  into existence in 1886, the year  Vancouver became a city. The  "World" (now "The Sun") started in 1893 and "The Province"  in 1898,  From the first, George Gib  son subscribed to the Advertiser until the Province came  along. Between 1906 and 1911,  while Mrs. James Fletcher operated the Gibsons Landing  post office at the corner of the  Pratt Road and the Sechelt  Highway, residents along the  waterront received their papers and other mail from a box  tacked to the wall inside the  wharf freight shed.  Settlers in the, West Howe  Sound area in particular were  interested in Vanvouver nfws,  for most family heads worked  part of each year in the rapidly growing city in order?- to  earn cash for the months they  were required to spend on their  pre-emptions in order to prove  title to them.. .     ��� ���   j;  Since their arrival in.fthe  district in 1908, the Hopkins  family has subscribed to|? at  least one copy of the Province  throughout the past 50 years.  In 1911, W.W. Winn, father  of Harry Winn of Gibsons^ reinstalled a new Province press  that had not been operating  properly. f  A.J. Charman, who had  spent much of his life at sea,  contributed many articles; to  the Province during the 1930's,  at a time when its circulation  was considerably ahead of the  Vancouver Sun. ?  First locally-printed news-  sheet was put out in 1930;?by  the Rev. C. Owen Darby, Anglican, Church minister. The  publication, called the "Eagle"  was printed on the Howe  Sound Trading Company mim-  eograh, about the only one in  the district at that time. News  and advertising covered the  district from Hopkins Landing  to Halfmoon Bay.  An editorial note in the first  issue proclaimed the policy of  the publication: "The Eagle  will rise above everything,  knows not the day nor the hour  as it wheels in the empyrean  of space. We invoke all the  good   spirits   that   they  may  wing our bird on its way to its  duty and hang the results."  The road to Pender Harbour,  according to a news item in  the first issue, had reached a  point about four miles beyond  Halfmoon Bay. Mr. A.S. True-  man was principal of the Howe ���  Sound High School and Miss  Gladys Disney (now Mrs. McNutt of. Egmont) was principal of the Gibsons Landing Elementary school.  Mrs. L. Dougall had donated  two lots in the bay area to the  young people' of the district  for athletics. Alan (now Dr.  in a clearing project led by  Alan) Inglis cut the first tree  Rev. Darby. The site is now  known as the Kinsmen Playground. Miss Doris Taylor  (now Mrs. Jim Rusk) was edi  tor of the school news section  of the paper. Charlie Chaplin  in "Easy Street" and Felix the  Cat were to be shown in the  new   Women's   Institute   Hall.  The ;T3agle came out once a  week for several months, then  quietly .passed out of existence.  On July 11, 1945, 14 years  after the Eagle's demise, the  Coast News came into existence. Publishers were Al Als-  gard of 'Powell River and  Ernie Parr-Pearson of Halfmoon Bay, and printing was  done at Powell. River.  Much of the issue of June  28, 1946, was devoted to news  of the earthquake of the Sunday before. On July 1, Robert  Burns of Gibsons was the first  reader to renew his subscription.  Up until this time the Vancouver dailies: had no great  edge over the local weekly, for  during all but two or three  months of the year boats called  here three times a week. Saturday's papers did not arrive  until late Tuesday afternoon.  The inauguration of Sea Bus  Lines soon after the end Of  World War II permitted the  Sun and Province to be delivered here daily., Nevertheless,  the Coast News more than held  its own, even despite the coming into existence in 1948 of  the "Peninsula Times," which  published for about a year.  Today, with almost no local  news appearing in the Vancouver dailies, the Coast News  supplies this need to the area  between Howe Sound and Jervis Inlet.;  In 1949, Bill Sutherland and  Sam Nutter purchased both the  News and the Times,   and in-  Guaranteed  Watch &  Jewelry Repairs  Chris* Jewelers  Mail ��rders Given Prompt  Attention  Work done on the Premises  Phone Sechelt 96  stalled a press and linotype  machine in the present Coast  News building at Gibsons.  The present publisher, Fred i  Cruice, acquired the Coast  News in September, ,1954. Early in 1957 he installed a second linotype machine to accommodate the news and advertising expansion.

Along with the desire to go places and see things,  Canadians have an urge to get ahead in life . . ��� to  have guaranteed financial security. That's why ^they  own more life insurance, in relation to national  income, than any other people.  Over 7 */_ million Canadians own life insurance because,  they feel it offers them a variety of guaranteed bene-*  fits not obtainable ia any other way.  Every year an"increasing number of Canadians- buy  life insurance as their major source of family and  personal security. A  This strong belief in the ownership of life insurance  means that Canadians may well continue to be the  world's best insured people, in relation to national  income.  Y  Ownership of life insurance reflects the confidence  that Canadians have in the well trained, helpful  agents who offer them this valuable property.

Last year alone, forward-looking Canadian s  opened 450,000 new deposit accounts in  the chartered banks���almost as many as  the increase in population.  The owners of today's 11 million accounts  know a bank is the safe, convenient,  pleasant place to build up funds for every  need and purpose.  They know, too, that in a chartered bank  you deal with skilled, friendly people,  ready to help with all your banking.  THE   CHARTERED   BANKS   SERVING   YOUR   COMMUNITY ave  ritain  ARTICLE 7  By Thomas Humphries  Next door to the Cumberland  Hotel was a very fine J. Arthur  Rank picture theatre, always referred to as cinemas in England,  and,, although it was still open,  it was distressing to see how  poorly it was patronized. As in  Canada, television seems to .have  ruined the picture theatre business but, up to the present, it  does not seem to have affected  the legitimate theatre, opera ballet or concerts and we found it  quite impossible to get tickets  for one of the operas we should  (like to have seen.  On Oxford Street near the hotel was a News Cinema, showing  about one-and-a-half hours of  news reels and film shorts, and  this type of theatre seemed to  have resisted the general slump  as it was quite busy when we occasionally visited it in the evening.  Oxford Street is one of the few  straight wide thoroughfares in.  London; is a wonderful shopping  street and is the home of some  cf London's most famous department stores. We were not in: the  market to buy any&ing but wc  did get quite a kick out of window shopping on Oxford Street  and comparing goods and prices  with similar articles in Canada.

Refrigerators, as we saw them displayed in shop windows, are dwarfs  compared with ours and it is exceptional to see a 21 inch TV  set, the most popular size being  14 inches.  ���w^W^y  ��� *������;��� �������������..���**t?-?^<���'  r-mai ms$ coupon wday mr mmmrmi-i  ��   Canadian Pulp & Paper Association (B.C.

You would,  probably cut down on cigarettes  and try a pipe but, alas, tobacco  costs 60c for half an ounce. The  only alternative would be snuff  which is comparatively cheap, I  did notice that packs of 10 cigarettes were more popular than  packs of 20 and some shops I  was in only carried 10's.  Premium gasoline, or petrol  as it is called in England, costs  five shillings a gallon, or 70  cents which is one of the reasons  why small cars are so popular  in Great Britain. Fuel was considerably more expensive than  in Canada, food was not much  cheaper on the average.      0  What amazed me was how tlie  Englishman with his smaller  earnings and heavier income tax  managed to look so prosperous!  and comfortable, which he did.  However, here are some guesses.  As to refrigerators, electrical apv  pliances and other luxuries, most  working people and middle class  people do without them. As to>  clothing they must be able to  buy cheaper clothing than wo  saw on display in Oxford Street  and wear it a long time. As to  fuel, the Englishman, English  women too, wear warm clothing;  the year round and they, are a  hardy race^'and seem'to^'oe impervious to cold.  Coast News,   Oct. 9,  1958.

The rest of the  house is cold although most  houses have electric radiants or  gas fires in the bedrooms for  use on special occasions such asi  a visit from pampered Canadian  relatives. As noted previously  the British are an extremely  hardy race and don't seem to  notice the cold although I had  to wear two pullovers most of  the time I w$s in England.  As to motor cars, most of the  English cars average from 30 to  50 miles to the gallon,. many of  them are three wheel cars with  motorcycle engines, distances  are not great and mileage much  less than ours and, finally, the  average Englishman does not  trade in his car every two or  three years but keeps it for at  least. 10 years.  Further, the high cost of some  of the items mentioned above  may be offset to some extent by  the cheaper cost of services and  rents. For instance, a hair cut  costs twq ' shillings or 28 cents,  medical attention and hospitalization are free and any labour  or help is, of course, much  cheaper than in Canada.  When all is said and done,  however, we have to face the  fact that with wages in England  about 60% of wages in Canada,  the standard of living in England is much lower. After a 15  -year, period of tightening belts  and rationing, finished while we  were there by the de-rationing,  of coal, people feel, that at last  they are in a period of prosperity,  no recession or unemployment  to speak of, and.they now happily refer to their country as  Bountiful Britain-  The forest is Canada's greatest renewable resource.

Simpkins  ieid  Introduction by the Bank of  Nova Scotia of a complete consumer loan and instalment  credit service, to be known as  Sc-otia Plan Loans, is announced by F. William Nicks, vice-  president and general manager  "We have given considerable  study to the need, in a growing  economy like ours, for an expanded consumer credit service. As a result we are introducing the Scotia Plan, thus  adding another dimension to  our range of customer services," he said, "Wise borrowing is part of good money management; and this new program, the most comprehensive  of its kind to be offered by a  Canadian bank, will make low-  cost loans available easily for  any worthwhile purpose."  The Scotia Plan includes  three types of loans ��� on signature alone, on automobiles,  and on home furnishings. It  was not until the last revision  of the Bank Act, in 1954, that  the chartered banks of Canada  were permitted to make loans  against chattel mortgages.  Scotia   Plan Loans  will   be  made at any of the Bank's 500  branches in Canada. The loans  will be life-insiured at no cost"  to the borrower.

MiiMiwmm.MniiiUl7_ii.iii Letters to the editor  Editor: In last week's issue  of the Coast News there appeared a small column on the  front page announcing the  start of the 1958-59 Glee Club.  The head of the column was  'If you sing join the Glee Club.'  In the column there was a  request, written in plain English for ladies desirous of join-  ng the club, to contact any  member of the group.  Beng that singing is one of  my particular interests, and  since I sang in the Glee Club  at school and also St. Aidan's  Church Choir, I figured I might  be eligible for -joining. So I  took the opportunity on Monday night to go and see about  it, but was quickly turned  with "We asked for ladies to  come and sing, not kids to fool  around!" ���'  If this is the reception young  people who are out of school  receive, when they wish to inquire about joining clubs, is  it any wonder they have nothing, to do?  (Name withheld by editor)  Editor: Referring to the column "Whereas and Whereof"  in the Coast News, Oct.  2,  "CCF. leader M.J. Coldwell  in turning the first sod for a  new building for the party said  'I hope this will mark the turning of other sods in a political  sense.' We hope so, if it means  burying some of the party's  half-baked ideas."  I consider it very poor taste  on the part of Mr. Donaghan  to use a column like his to  throw dirt at a political party.  In this part of the country, we  have endeavoured t0 keep our  politics clean.  Are we to assume that this  was published with the consent of the editor?  If Mr. Donaghan wants to  express his opinion of the CCF  which he has every right to do,  why not write a letter to your  paper Constructive criticism  is appreciated by most people,  but when a person stoops to using a comic* column to camouflage insults, it is time some  one took exception.  /The views expressed, in this  letter are those of a number  of your subscribers, and this  kind of thing will not do your  paper any good.  Jen. Monrufet.  Editor's note: For anyone to  imply a  political party exists  which does not have half-baked  ideas is stretching the imagination too far. To suggest anyone  "stoops to  using a comic  column to camouflage insults"  is also stretching the imagination. Perhaps the subscribers  who   support   Mrs.    Monrufet  should check back to what occurred at the last CCF convention in   Winnipeg.  The editor  has many political  friends in  all parties. Most of them have  a sense of humor.  Editor: With reference to the  doggerel in your issue of the  2nd under the caption "It  wasn't the Navy?"  On Tuesday, Sept. 9, in the  morning, I was contacted by  the authorities about the shell  falling in the vicinity of Roberts Creek. I promised when I  had 'something substantial to  report I would do so. On Wednesday, Sept. 10, about 10  o'clock in the morning I happened to speak to Mrs. Florence Johnson about it and she  told me her husband had seen  a shell light right in front of  their., house. I immediately relayed this information to the  proper authorities and it is noted that no shells fell in this vicinity, after that. I have reason to believe that no time was  lost bringing it to the attention of the navy.  T*wo officers from the navy  were-here and got the details  also. ;An acquaintance of rnine  watched the gunboat during  the,firing and saw the smoke  on ��� the Sechelt Peninsula side  of; the boat when each shell  was fired. There seems no  reason to. claim that it 4 was  not the navy.  At rnidnight on Wed. Sept.  10, I was called on the long  distance telephone toy the Vancouver ����un to get the details of  the 'shelling of Roberts Creek.'  My name was given them by  a resident of the Peninsula,  who received the call from the  Sun as the most likely person  to have the facts about it. A  second -call was made a few  minutes later to get more in-  foimation ������ and again at 7.45  a.m.Thuns. Sept. 11 a call from  the Sun. I gave them the proper number, to call so they  could contact Mrs. Johnson  and .they had a report in the  paper that afternoon, I was in  Vancouver and read it as soon  as the paper was on the street,  It should be noted that there  was real danger during the  time the firing lasted. An error of one degree in the sighting of the gun would have  made a difference of 180 feet  in the distance according to the  trajectory. An error of more  than. two  degrees would haye  Coast  News,   Oct. 9,   1958^    7  landed the shell dangerously  near the Kewpie Camp possibly  not quite so far, biit not much  short of it. The two shells that  were seen to fall in the water  both exploded according to  eye-witnesses so ther^ was. no  chance of finding even a fragment, also they landed too far  out even to get at on low tide.

We estimate about 10,000  Canadians, mostly children, are  suffering from this progressive  and crippling disease of the  muscles. Few of the child victims will live beyond adolescence. So far there is no known  cure.  Our figure of 10,Qpo is merely an estimate because many  parents aren't aware that their  children have MD.  These people should know  that an association exists in  Canada whose function is to  help them to find out if they  hsve a victim of MD in the  family and to- assist them in  every way until a cure is found  This body, of whom I am honorary chairman, is the Muscular Dystrophy Association of  Canada. They are spending  thousands' each year on research to find a cure. .  By publishing this letter and  encouraging your readers to  let us know of cases in their  families, their circle of friends,  or their practices you will be  making a much,needed contri  bution to the work already in  progress?, aimed   at   defeating ���.  this disease.

The convention concluded  with a banquet during which  songs were sung by Mrs. Isa-  belle King and George Woodcraft supplied a half-hour of  mystic tricks. Mr. Matthews:  toaeted The Province and Robert Bonner, Q.C., responded.  BRAVE WOMEN  A lady wrote a letter recently  which was one of warm appreciation, but there was a little note  of complaint; she wished that  ther^ might be a larger percentage of noble women, not that  the men were not fine but a more  frequent mention of women  would be acceptable. I accept  the suggestion; there is no lack  of grand women.  It isn't so much what happens  to people in life that matters  but the way they take it. The  same wind that blows out a  match fans a flame to a greater  extent. An experience which  makes one man bitter and resentful serves another as a stepping stone to high and to better  things.  *j�� *jC 5|C  Fanny Crosby, the blind composer of a number of hymns was  born in America in 1820 and  lived to the age of 95. She was  onjly a baby of six weeks old  (and had been born with perfect  eyesight) when she caught cold  in hsr eyes and severe inflama-  tion followed. Their own family  doctor was away and the stranger  who came in his place advised  that hot poultices be put on the  baby's eyes. Some mistake had.  been made, with the result that  Fanny became totally blind.  Later on in life she says, "I  have never once in my long life-  felt a spark of resentment  against that doctor, because I  have always believed that God,  by this means, consecrated me to  the work I am still permitted  to do." What a striking illustration, of the truth which St. Paul  expressed when, he said, "Alf  things work together for good  to them that love God!"  *    *    *  One day the great English  novelist, Arnold Bennett, was  sitting in a restaurant in London,  He saw a fat, ugly, grotesque  looking woman come in and sit  down nearby. The sight of her  excited amusement among other  customers, amusement not un-  tinged with ridicule. As Bennett  watched her and took in the situation he reminded himself that  she had probably once been a  young and attractive girl,? with  charm in form and movement,  and he asked himself the question: What is it that comes into  people's lives which so completely  changes them from being attractive to being an object of ridi-  eule? That led to his writing one  of the greatest novels of modern  times, "Old Wives' Tale."  One often wonders what it is  _--.V-V    V---'.-*-, V.  V    < H ��i^Aiftt-U jw-j* -Jajj -,*-.**.

Yet there need not  be this withering blight in middle life. Surely God can deliver  people from the destruction that  wasteth ait noonday. It is possible  to carry on through middle, and  into old age, charm and sweetness and beauty. That is one of  the true messages of all spiritual  religion; God keeps a light, the  glow    of   His    love, in human  hearts.  The philosopher, Montaigue  said: "Old age sets more wrinkles  On the spirit than on the face."  This does not always happen, and  it need not. Many of the best  natured people in the world, are  living on borrowed time, if we  accept the Psalmist's span of  70.'  There can be no defeat of the  truly religious. There is a life  which survives all destructive  forces. By His grace God redeems life from cynicism and  despair. When the novelist,  George Macdbnald was asked if  he believed man had a soul; "1  do not care to put it that way,  man is a soul and has a body."  As Socrates said of his judges:  "No evil thing can befall a good,  man." That is to say; no circum  stance need be allowed to crush  his spirit.

A short story for Canadians  about the country's banking system and its unique features is  told in a booklet distributed by  The Canadian Bankers' Association.

Canada has a branch bank system,, the booklet explains. The  first branch was opened in Quebec City in 1817 and today there  are more thon 4?600 in Canada  and 151 in 18 foreign countries  and! eight territories of the British West Indies. Canada has  more banking offices in relation  to population than any other  country, the booklet notes.  At Confederation, the federal  government got the power to  regulate banking in the country,  and the booklet tells how, by  revision every 10 years, the  Bank Act is kept up to date and  the banking system kept abreast  of the nation"s needs.  There is a chapter on the  Bank of Canada, the nation's  central bank, and how it controls the amount of credit and  money available in the country  at any given period.  The booklet also contains a  number of simple facts often  forgotten:  There   are   11,000,000 deposit  accounts in the chartered banks.  At any given moment the  banks have about 1,250,000 loans  on their books. These aren t  only loans to businessmen. A  one-day check among bank,  branches made a couple of years  ago showed that personal loans  totalled $220,123,000. The size of  these loans was from under, $300  up to $3,500.  Winding up its story, the booklet says:  "The Canadian banking system long has been known for its  strength and stability, its ability  to keep pace with the growing-  expanding needs of a young and  progressive nation."

One7 of numerous famous participants in the Klondike aaa  other gold rushes around, the  tum' of the century was Klondike Mike, who gained fame for  his . feats of prowess and endurance. Michael * Ambrose Ma-  horiey was born near Buckingham, Quebec, in 1878, and died,  at Ottawa in 1949. Among his  feats was a winter trek out from  Fairbanks with the body of  Judge Humes of Seattle. He once  carried a piano over the Chil-  koot Pass.   ���  At the age of 14 he'went to  Michigan where he worked for  three years in his uncles' lumber  mill and gained a reputation as  an athlete arid? fighter.  He was  in   Washington state  when the  Klondike gold rush began,  and  after a" series of adventures arrived   in   IJawson   in   October.  1897. During the next two winters he ^carried mail out of Dawson; between 1901 and 1904 he  earned    mail   from   Nome    to  Prince of Wales.  He took part in more than half  a dozen rushes in the Yukon,  and Alaska, and after making a  rich strike*in 191.0. returned to  Ottawa to engage in business.  the. above denominations, the  1958 Series Canada Savings  Bonds will be available in ful-'  ly registered form in denominations of $500, $1,000 and  $5,000.
