Mary's Hospital at  Pender Harbour.  As a part of their safety program, Canadian Forest Products has offered to pay! to St.  Mary's hospital on behalf of  their employees, a sum of money equal to 50 cents per point  accumulated by the winning  team. These points are earned  by the employees by working  without a lost time accident,  by purchasing safety shoes or  hard hats, by submitting acceptable, safety suggestions, by  successfully completing a  First Aid course or taking part  in a First Aid competiion and  by attending a monthly safety  meeting.  Points are also demerited for .  lost time 'accidents, failure to �����  attend a team meeting, failure  to report an injury to the First  Aid room or for becoming involved in an' off the job traffic accident.  The plant is divided into  nine teams and competition for  points is between these teams.  Captain Ernie Hume's team  earned 114 points, the most  points for the month of January. Their team earned $57  for St. Mary's Hospital. This  money will be accumulated for  six months and then turned  over to St. Mary's Hospital  and used for much needed renovations. J. Macey's team came  second with 95 points and W.  Booth's team came third with  91 points.  During January there were  no lost time accidents. During  this period 18 pair of boots  and three hard hats were purchased. Also three safety sug-  gesions were received and 224  employees attended safety  meetings.  *  If the employees work safely and submit as many suggestions this year as last year,  they should earn roughly $500  for St. Mary's Hospital during  the first six months of 1959.  Square d  need  Square dancing in Granthams Community hall on St.  Valentine's day has resulted in  the seeking of larger premises  to handle more squares at the  next event. As a result the  hall at Hopkins Landing will  be used for the Feb. 28 dance  which will start at 8:30 p.m.  Gibsons area Square Dance  Group stage the event and  have Bud Blatchford. from Sechelt as caller. He explains  basic steps to novices and then  runs them into simple dances.  Mrs. Hendrickson as hostess  for the evening welcomed the  dancers. Refreshments were  served.  Auxiliary pays  for machine  At ihe^ St. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliary first meeting of the  year on Thurshay, Feb. 12,  authorization was given to pay  for the anaesthetic machine  purchased last year for the  hospital and to contribute money to buy a refrigerator for  the nurses' residence.  Work on the residence, with  money donated by the auxiliary, is progressing; the new linoleum has been laid in the  living room and pronounced  satisfactory.  It was decided to hold a  Family Supper and Bingo  March 14 at Madeira Park  Community Hall. -The usual  Spring Tea wi_l take place  May 2 in the Clubhouse.  The auxiliary draws attention .to two. of its public services: a greeting card concession handled by Mrs. D.

The telephone company decided the compiling of the calls  would cost more than the calls  would total in tolls paid and  decided to remove tolls to Port  Mellon.  Merchants feel there will be  a growing business with * Port  Mellon customers now that  they can reach for the phone  and contact the merchants by  dialling.  Scouts plan  activities  The monthly meeting of the  Sunshine Coast'Boy Scout Ash  sociaticn was held at the Penin  sula Hotel, Feb. 10 with president, Robert Gill of Port Mellon presiding.  The president reported progress was being made in acquiring a camp site for the  scouts. The site when decided  upon will be at the disposal of  all Scout Troops and Cub  Packs with headquarters in the  Sunshine Coast area.  The group committee chairmen present reported that their  troops were putting on special  activities such as camping  trips, church parades and father and son banquets to mark  Boy Scout week between Feb.  16 and 22.^  D.R. Macklam, secretary, reported that the result of the  1958 financial drive for all  the area totalled $892.72.  Another point brought out  by most members was the need  of. -more1 ..Scout ^anid ��������� Cub >mas-.  ters to supplement the efficient  men arid women how carrying  on this interesting work. Any  interested persons are requested to contact N.G.B. Burley  at Sechelt or��-N.R. McKibbin  at Gibsons.  Student play  at Pender Hbr  Pupils of Pender Harbour  High School delighted a large  audience on Fri., Feb. 13 when  they presehtel the comedy  Nothing but the Truth.  The plot of the play deals'  with a bet that Robert Bennett  tell the truth and nothing but  the truth for 24 hours. Miss  Lorraine Gregerson and Nelson Miller had, the leading  parts.  The play, well put on,  showed careful coaching bj  the school staff. Few in the  audience realize the tremendous amount of work involved  in putting on a school play and  teachers and those pupils taking part- should be congratulated for a very fine show.  Church parade  The Boy Scouts, Girl  Guides and Cubs of Gibsons will attend morning  service at St. Bartholomew's church, on Sun.,  Feb.  22 at  11 a.m.  Fire matters  d  At'; a meeting last Thursday  night of the executive of the  Gibsons and Area Volunteer  Fire Department, several mat  ters of importance were dis-  ���cusse.i-!, including fire hall property, water supply in the area  and stand pipes for the Hopkins area.

Reason  for seeking such information  is that a referendum has to be'  prepared to place before the  pub.ic and a definite date must  be set.  The board held a day long  meeting in Gibsons on Feb. 9,  with Mr. Jeffrey, district superintendent of schools present.  Mrs. A.E��. TioIba-d's appointment as representative for  Roberts Creek has been confirmed by the department of  education.  The date of the 1959 budget  review for School District No.  46 by the department of education has been set for* March  3 and will be attended by mem  bers of- the board.  Mrs. Swan will attend "Trustee Day" at*the College of Education, UBC, in Vancouver on  March 10 as the board's repre-  . sentative.  Arrangements are now being  made for the members of the  board to attend the B.C. School  Trustees' Association 1959 contention in Victoria in October.  A report was received from  the principal of Elphin_?tone  High School regarding rumour_i  of illicit use of students' lock  ers. It was learned that following the burglary of the Legion  Hall, the police carried out a  complete search of the higfe  school and found no evidence  of any illegal activity by students.  A thorough discussion was  held regarding emergency  transportation for sick and injured children from the schools  to their homes, hospital or doctor. Letters -will be sent to each.  principal and school immediately.  Mrs.    Neilson's    resignation  from the teaching staff at Bowen   Island was  accepted  with  regret. Mrs. Neilson is on leave  of absence.  It is the hope of  the board that her ability and  wide   experience   in the  field  of music will still be available  to  the  schools in the districi.  The question of smoking by  ���students   was   again    brought  before the board, and the previous instructions will  be  repeated to each principal, that  smoking will not be permitted  at any student function in any  school  building, or  on schoi-J  grounds,  by students or  their  guests. * Smoking    by     adul  groups   using the schools will  be given further consideration,  and a directive issued on the  matter.  Mrs. Rankin and Mr. Pa-  quette will attend the Councillor:;.' conference in Vancouver  on Feb. 27.  Red Cross meeting Sat  *  Monday night Gibsons and  District Board of Trade executive held its first meeting of  the year at the home of Jim  and Wynne Stewart.  Many items of interest to the  individual, and thei business  people of Gibsons were discussed and some important decisions were made.  The board believes the time  has come for action along  many lines for the betterment  of the community as a whole,  for instance, the need for action of the provincial government to build the Squamish-  , Port Mellon road.  The meeting decided there  are many needs, and perhaps  the foremost is for support of  the Board of Trade is its undertaking to see Gibsons does  not become a forgotten community.  A contribution in this respect, members of the execu-  tie said, can be that you become a member of the Board  of Trade and lend your weight  in a united effort to better the  community. The cost is small  but the benefits can be great.  Red Cross workers of Se-  - chelt, Roberts Creek and Gibsons are preparing for the  month-long drive to receive  donations for the Red Cross.

This amounted to seven tons,  and contained 31,821 pieces.  Gibsons Red Cross canvassu  ers will meet Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. in the Coast  News office to round out the  organization and fill in gaps  where canvassers have left.  Usually  the drive finds suffi  cient women- who are interested in Red Cross work to take  on the job of making a tour of  the district in which they live  to accept donations. Authorized receipts are always given by  these canvassers.

The Annual World Day of  Prayer held in the United  Church, Feb. 13 was well attended, ten local women's organizations  being represented.  Taking an active part in th  service were Mrs. M.

An appeal  A special appeal is made for  the annual meeting of the Gibsons and District Ratepayers  Association, called for Feb. 23,  at 8 p.m. in the United Church  Hall. Give your support as you  have done in the past.  Like wandering minstrels  with ballads, songs and snatches and dreamy lullabys, Betty  Phillips and Ernie Prentice  with Pat Trudell accompanying on the accordion sang their  way through songs "of the people, for the people" at last  Thursday night's Overture Con  certs second event of the season in Elphinstone High School  auditorium.  To suggest with written word  they were a perfect combination should be left to describing applause the trio received  at the end of their concert. It  was probably the heaviest and  longest any artist has receiv  ed in this series of concerts so  far. They deserved it because  from the bpening suggestion  that the audience relax as there  would be no formality  right to their final remarks,  they kept their listeners wanting more.  They ranged through  spirituals, calypso, Chrisopher  Robin,    Scottish,     Irish,     English,  Welsh,    French-Canadian    and  other    songs   with    surprising  ease.  It  was  like  listening   to  old friends who have dropped  ���in for a Couple of hours of  rambling song.  Their numbers requiring a  bit of brogue were done to a  nicety, not too much or too little. The effect they produced  was sufficient to carry the  minds of he audience along  with the singers and their song.  Even in their trios with Pat  Trudell singing as well as playing the accordion their balance  was quite effective.  Older folk were left happy  with a number of songs that  delighted their ears when one  considers the motley melange  of nondescript modern messes  that pass through hit parade  after hit parade. The Scots  who shouted "sure" when asked if there were any Scots in  the house revealed a tinge of  Irish which was noted by Mr.  Prentice.  Their performance in front  of the deep rose curtain blocking off (he bare back stage  drew the performers closer to  the audience. They started by  asking if there were any bachelors in the house and apparent  ly   found   one   to   whom   Mr.  Prentice sang Wish I Was Single Again. Its humor tickled  the audience and later audience partcipation in a rhythm  r.umber, quite effective it was  too, gave the more than 250  persons in the auditorium a  chance to join in the presentation of Ruri Come See Jerusalem, a southern spiritual.  The general acceptance of  Betty Phillips and Ernie Prentice has been good no matter  where they have appeared and  the writer has had the pleasure of hearing them at various  functions in Vancouver and  shows no desire to regard them  as other than top notch artists  in their folk singing niche.  Anticipated pleasure would be  1he proper description to give  if one wanted to explain what  one should expect at one of  their  concerts.  That is what the audience  must have experienced at the  Overture Concerts Thursday  night event. There was nothing  tiring about them as no song  was of any length. It was their  engaging manner which put  them across. Need more be  said? ��� F.C. 8   Coast News, Feb. 19,  1959.

It is his perogative to do so.  It is also the perogative of moulders of public opinion to  delve a little deeper into government financing and come up  with some thoughts which should give the net debt situation  proper perspective in general government financing.  .Some weeks ago in Ontario it was reported a study of  government by commission was to be made at government level.  The understanding arising from the report was that it intended to investigate the extent to which government was being  placed in the hands of various commissions raising and expending public money. It was not primarily intended to cover exploratory commissions investigating such problems as education and  similar questions, but it could apply in part.  Just how far is government by commission likely to go?  British Columbia has its various commissions handling public  money, such as the Power commission, Toll and Bridge Authority, P.G.E., and so on.  A recent news item from Victoria revealed the Bennett  government was raising the borrowing powers of the Power  Commission, P.G.E. and Toll Highways and Bridges Authority.  The bill introduced will raise the borrowing powers by $80,000,-  000, increasing their total borrowing powers to $520,000,000.  This is money which will eventually, have to be provided by the public partly through services provided and partly  through cash to pay off interest on borrowed money. It is assumed  the payment of interest on borrowings would be included in the  price of the service sold through the Power Commission and  the Toll Authority.  Thus far the problem of government by commission doea  not appear to be too serious a matter, but ��� and here is where  the issue becomes serious.  Taking events in chronological order, IP .A. Gibbs, Oak  Bay Liberal moved this notice of motion in the Victoria legislature according to the Jan. 27 Votes and Proceedings:  "Whereas expenditures on construction of the extensions  of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway appear to be in excess of  $82,000,000 as compared with the estimate of $45,000,000 contained :in the. Blue Book entitled 'Report On Extensions of the  -Pacific Great Easern Railway,' tabled in'the House in 1954 by  the Premier, an increase of 88 per cent over estimates:  "And whereas expenditures oh projects of the Toll Highways and Bridges Authority appear to have exceeded by 40 per  cent the estimates given the House when the projects were announced:  / "Therefore be it Resolved, That the Select Standing Committee on 'Public Accounts be empowered to investigate the expenditures on all these projects, to call witnsses, and to obtain  such papers and things necessary to ascertain the reasons for  this excess expenditure over estimates."  At the time of writing the Coast News has not received  the official government reply to this motion so relies on the  answer as reported by "a Vancouver newspaper in a Canadian  Press dispatch from Victoria which read hi part: "A proposal  that the public accounts committee be permitted to examine accounts of government agencies was turned down by the Social  Credit majority on the committee Monday. Health Minister Martin said such accounts 'are beyond the responsibility of the committee'."  How does an opposition function in a case like this? How  dees the public whose money is involved get a fair chance at  knowing what the government is doing with the funds it guarantees? At what point can these expenditures be examined by elected representatives of the people?  Is this not government by commission? Why should expenditures of commissions be immune from scrutiny by a public accounts committee or some committee set up for this purpose?  If government by commission is carried much further it  would leave government in the position of merely taxing for incidental expenses of government because all other functions will  be taken over by commissions, responsible to a minister who can  block all enquiries.  The point the Coast News is striving to make is that a  government should not crow over net debt reduction when the  "contingent liabilities" which cost the public money, no matter  how you argue the case, can mount without there being any public accounting through committee investigation or through legislative control. So far tlie only control is the passage of a bill  broadening borrowing powers. After that it is apparently no  one's business what happens except that of a cabinet minister  who can say such accounts are beyond the responsibility of the  public accounts committee. ���  If this is what the people of British Columbia want, there  is not much anyone can do about it. One can only wish Mr. Bennett luck in his campaign to convince Jhe general public the  net public debt is zero. His houie may appear clean but there  are, no doubt, a few financial gremlins so far kept under control under the carpet. Some day they will pop out.  To clarify tlie debt situation as it involves the  recent budget, the column "In the Legislature" on thia page,  written by Tony Gargrave, M.L.A., will provide further infonma-  tion. Between Mr. Gargrave's analysis of the situation and the  foray into "government by commission" by the Coast News,  the public should be able, to obtain a general picture as to wlhy  the net debt is disappearing ��� with the aid. of mirrors, of course.  i.iiiM_iiu-itWli_Mt-i-W-uiMMMMuta--iuiii��iiiuiin>uufiiMi_i-_^w  FOR PICTURES OF YOUR WEDDING  By APPOINTMENT  Phone T.

Both of these involve con  tacts with people of other nationalities. Canadian Headquarters also maintains an active penpal bureau.  Feb. 22 was chosen as the date  for Thinking Day as a tribute to  the late Lord Baden-Powell of  Gilwell, who founded the Boy  Scout and Girl Guide movements, and to his wife, the Lady  Baden-Powell, the World Chief  Guide, because both their birthdays fall on this date.

MLA  No budget speech of the government has been complete in  the last few years unless the  minister of finance, Mr. W.A.C.  Bennett, has dealt at some  length with the net direct debt  of the province. Net direct  debt is the total sums the government owes directly less  money in the sinking funds.  To the man on the street  debt is debt. However, the minister of finance always manages to forget about $70,000,000  of debt incurred directly! by  the province as their share for  schools  and toll   bridges.  There is some justification  for saying that P.G.E. debt and  B.C. Power Commission debt  are contingent liabilities, but  there is no excuse, in my opinion, for describing the government's share of school construe  tion debt or toll bridge authority debt, anything less than  part of the .direct debt of the  province.  *    *    *  The sums which the taxpayers of British Columbia  pay each year tawarc_&;retire- ���  ment of these debts are-.never  found in the debt retirernerit  section of the public accounts.  If you turn to page 25 of the  premier's budget speech you  will see item No. 7 which says  that last year the provincial  government guaranteed $86,-  000,000 of bonds floated to  pay for schools since 1953.  'Since that year the government ceased to contribute a  50 % lump sum to the construction of schools and instead insisted on the school boards  floating all their own bonds.  The repayment to date on the  $86,000,000 is $13,000,000. One  half of that sum was repayment of interest and capital ,  that have been paid out of  consolidated revenue. In other  words, this is a direct debt of  the province.  -U v^ *V  ���J> -I* rf.  Approximately $2,000,000  that the government paid last  year towards retiring this debt  is hidden under Vote 97. This  vote is entitled "grants towards  the costs of education." Vote  97 is up considerably this year  "and the average citizen would  think that this means that there  is more money for school  boards. Actually, direct debt  reduction is hidden ih this  vote. One of the reasons why  Vote 97 has grown in size from  y ear to year is that the direct  debt chickens of this government are coming home to  roost.  One of the reasons that this  government has been able to  say that they have been reducing their net direct debt over  the last few years is that the  government ceased paying in  one lump sum the. 50% contribution to capital? school construction that they used to  make. This immediately relieved the net direct debt of the  province but it meant that we  have postponed into the future these large sums of money. The annual payments required are now beginning to  grow.  *    *    *  Let us take the Toll Bridge  Authority. Once again on page  25 of the minister of finance's  budget speech we see that the  Toll Bridge Authority has $70,-  000,000 of -debt outstanding.  It is true that there "re tolls  collected to p*ry off l^.r^e parts  of this Toll Authority obligation, but esioh '���'���������ear *h': orovin-  cial government, makes a direct grant of 2Vz% of the cap  ital cost of each bridge to the  Toll Authority.  The taxpayers are contribut-  . ing directly approximately $2,-  000,000 a year on this basis.  It is a direct responsibility of  the provincial government and  should be part of the direct  debt of the province but like  the education construction  costs it does not appear in the  public debt section of the public accounts.  *     *    *  Half of the cost of school  construction shou'.d be charged up to net direct debt, this  represents about $43,000,000  and some of the Toll Bridge  Authority debt should likewise  be charged up to net direct  debt. This would represent a  sum of about $30,000,000.  In my opinion, about $73.  000,000 should be added to  the present net direct debt of  the province to enable a fair  comparison to be made with  our debt position in past years.

REMEMBER: the RING-OFF is especially important, otherwise  the operator may report your line as "busy" to anyone  trying to call you.  a  ja  BRITISH  COLUMBIA   TELEPHONE  COMPANY  *^i G  S  Y  Coast News, Feb. 19, 1959.    3  TALKS ON INDIANS  A series of talks about British Columbia's native Indians,  by G.

As a food product, fresh fish is  very perishable. When possible,  plan to use it the day it is pur-  chased. "When it is received in.  your kitchen wrap it in moisture-  proof paper or place it in a container with a '. tightly fitted  cover . . . ., then store it in the  coldest part of your refrigerator  until cooking time.

Fresh fillets treated with a  very small quantity (5 parts per  million or less) of chlortetracy-  cline, a chemical preservative  approved under the Canadian  Food and Drugs Act, are being  widely distributed. This preservative temporarily safeguards the  quality of the fillets by slowing  the growth of spoilage bacteria.  It does not alter the natural  flavour of the fish and its-presence is clearly stated on the label  of the package.  Something new in the way of  fish marketing has recently been  introduced in Halifax, Nova  Scotia. Consumers in that city can  now purchase fillets which have  been date-stamped for quality-  Fish plants in the area are producing packaged fresh fillets  which have been treated with  ehlortetracycline and are vacuum-packed in a plastic wrapping. The packages are stamped  with a date and indicate that  the fillets, if held at near freezing temperature, will be of good  quality during the . ten days  which follow.  FROZEN FISH  In modern grocery stores  there stands a treasure chest filled with gifts from the sea . . -  frozen gifts to be sure, but nevertheless gems of quality. Next  time you go food shopping, look  down into the frosted fish chest.

In many instancss, frozen fish  products can be cooked from the  frozen state. When it is necessary to thaw them either partially completely, tlie thawing is  best carried out at refrigerator  temperature. Once thawed, a  prod ict should be used as soon  as possible. It should not be re-  frozen.  CANNED FISH  Canadian fish and' shelifish are  widely distributed in canned  form. Varieties canned in largest  quantity are salmon, sardines,  and lobster. Some other varieties  canned by Canadian processors  in good supply are: tuna, Atlantic groiindfish (marketed  principally as "Chicken Had-  die"), herring, mackerel, clams,  and* crab.

They expressed regret upon  losing two valued members,  Mrs. W.W. Bird to Gibsons and  Mrs. J. Warlow to Vancouver.  Wishes for a speedy recovery  went to two members in hospital, Mrs. Reid and Mrs. J. Monrufet.  Plans were made for a  spring tea and bazaar to be  held April S.  The Zone meeting will be  held in Sechelt on March 7.  Those who were absent from  the last meeting who wish to  attend at Sechelt should get  in touch with Mrs. Bessie  Clark as soon as possible.  ��� Mrs. Gwen MacKenzie has  returned from Vane ouver  where she completed a course  in figure analyzing and is now  on the Stauffer staff of counselors and the representative  on the Sunshine Coast.  Mrs. J.W. Whitworth, pioneer resident of this district  celebrated her 82nd birthday  on the 17th.  March 21 is the date set for  the Fantasy Variety and Fashion show which had to be postponed la-.'. v*3cember. The long  interval between dates is caused by sell-out of winter' dresses  The Spring attire will be on  hand next month and will be  used in the Show.  Mr. and Mrs. J.O. Matthews  have sold their home here  where they have resided since  their marriage six years ago,  and with baby Brad are moving to their new home on Reid  Road in Gibsons.  Youngsters at Roberts Creek  school   exchanged    Valentines  and lived it up generally last  Friday with  the help of candies and other goodies.  cakes and soups can do much to  add variety to Lenten menus-  Canned seafoods are convenient to handle and store .... and  as they are already cooked, they  are quick and easy to prepare.  Many homemakers keep a supply on hand for impromptu use.  SMOKED FISH  'Fish smoking is a very old art.  Originally it was earned out by  primitive people to dry and preserve the catch for future use.  In modern practice, however,  fish is smoked not to preserva  the flesh but to enhance its flavour. Most smoked,fishery products marketed in this country  are as perishable as fresh fish.  They are commonly sold in frozen and canned forms.  Two general methods used for  smoking fish are ^cold-smoking  or light-smoking and hot-smoking or ; barbecuing. Hot smoked  fish are" entirely cooked, Some  examples are kippered salmon,  smoked whitefish, and smoked  eels. Cold-smoked fish require  additional cooking. Some popular cold-smoked products are-  kippered herring, Alaska black-  cod, Winnipeg goldeye, and finnan haddie.  1st us ke-augnand  balance vomwffms  ��*SAWY0M7!8E8"  WW&Wl^yAZ  %Wt\yts\Zo^  WH&UUG/fmHTSXPEnTSl  Mt-6  -EYMOORSt.  ii_m^_WjiiyH(r:  Avoid Over-Weight  ���pXCESS weight loads ex.*  ���*"*��� tra work on your heart.

Tinkley  as narrator.  Of interest to former prairie  residents were wheat scenes  with heavy tired modern machinery being used extensively. Resultant acres of golden  wheat being harvested with  combines   was  an .eye-opener.  Also shown were slides of  the town of Manor and the Holgate farm and buildings. There  was also an old fire engine  which is to be presented to a  museum as one of the oldest  in Canada.  It was interesting to note  the modern homes along with  the old - style three - storey  homes with white shutters reminiscent of Currier and Ives  prints.  Nearby beautiful Carlyle  Lake with its wide sandy  beaches looked like a seaside  resort gay with sun umbrellas  and sun bathers which amazed  the writer who thought beaches were strictly bathed by an  ocean. Cottages dotted the  shoreline and perch, pickerel  and whitefish are in its waters  which freeze in winter to a  depth of three feet.  Slides of Saskatoon and Ed- ���  monton brought nostalgic memories. Then a trip.through the  Dakota badlands with weird  rock erosions, a visit to Mt.  Rushmore where famout Americans are carved on its face,  then Sun Valley with its chalets and ski runs.

Then were shown pictures of  various" Vancouver buildings,  Stanley Park, Horseshoe Bay,  the ferry Bainbridge and some  splendid shots of Howe Sound.

Jet helicopter  The jet-propelled gas turbine helicopter, hai-cd by Barron's as 'signalling a new era  in helicopters,** has come to  Canada. The aircraft, the SE  3130 "Alouette II," has been  put into service by Autair Helicopter Services, Montreal. The  Alouette is the first to be certified by the Civil Aeronautics  board in the U.S. and licensed  by   the   Canadian  government.  Designed by: Sud Aviation,  largest aircraft manufacturer  in Western Europe, tlie Alouette is powered by a 400 horsepower Artouste IIB-1 gas tur-  "bine engine, produced hy Tur-  bomeca of France.  A unique feature of the Alouette is a "*��� special governing  system eliminating the need  for pitch-throttle co-ordination  by the pilot, which is required  in conventional helicopters.  The governing system provides  instantaneous response at no  sacrifice of rotor revolutions  per minute. The Alouette is a  111 miles-per-hour rotary wing  craft, carries four passengers  and pilot, and has a medium  range, 345 miles. THE BLACK SHEEP  Jesus once faced an unusual  congregation. The social outcasts of the city gathered to  hear him preach. They were  the people who were not respected by others and probably had lost faith in themselves.  They were the lost sheep of  the House of Israel.  The Scribes and Pharisees  took it for granted that Christ's  attitude to these people would  be identical with their own.  In ostracizing these social outcasts they felt they were pious  and patriotic. They were sure  they were the religious aris  tocracy; smug and self-complacent.  *&       'f       f  What did Jesus say to these  people? He told three parables  to illustrate the love of God  for all weak and wayward  souls, The parables of the Lost  Sheep, the Lost Coin and the  Prodigal Son. He dwelt, not on  their weakness and .V-ortcom-  ings but on the infinite love  of God for the last, the least  and the lost. His theme was  the everlasting mercy.  The Apostle John wrote:  Jesus came to make God  known. Christ himself said:  He tihat hath seen me hath seen  the Father." Here then is God's  attitude to the black sheep:  tender pity, infinite compass  sion:  There's a wideness in God's  mercy  Like the wideness of the sea.  Men grow cynical today as  they did in Palestine 19 centuries ago. They lose faith in  humanity and hold that nothing can be done for certain clas  ses. We have all felt that way  sometimes; yet it is a hasty  view. God, who alone knows  all that there is to know about  Kis creatures, has infinite compassion and wisdom.  *    *    *  The white sheep are placid  And feed in quiet places;  Their fleeces are like silver  That the moon has known.  But the ugly black sheep have  vigor  In their ugly faces.  The Best of all the shepherds  Wants them for His own.  The white sheep are gentle,    -  And  bend their necks together; "  They crop in God's pasture  Grasses sweet and mild.  But the black sheep are starving  Alone in heavy weather.

WfcpSVX&ST     Credit Unions  show expansion  Membership ami assets "of  credit unions in Canada increased by 11 percent in iyo7, according to the Economics Division,  Canada Department of Agriculture.  Membership now totals 2,084,-  658 and asests stand - at $846,��  000,000.  Greatest expansion ^wag seen  in already organized credit unions. The reported number of  chartered credit unions in the  ten provinces increased by only  three percent to 4,396.  Ontario and Quebec accounted  for 64 percent of the chartered  unions and 53 percent of the  membership.  In Quebec, 56 percent of the  1,411 unions are rural parish  credit unions. (Trend, towards  occupational credit unions continues in Ontario, where they  increased by 15 percent in 1957  and now account for 55 percent  of   the  province's   1,415  unions.  In Manitoba, there are a few  more rural credit unions than  those of the occupation?.!! type.  Occupational unions rank first  in Alberta and British roluro-  bia, but the unions in the Atlantic Provinces and in Saskatch-  e w a n remain predominantly  rural. *  6    Coast News, Feb.   19,  1959.  Oh, Best of all the shepherds,  Feed them in the wild!  Every great preacher without exception, from earliest  times to modern days, began,  with a message of stern denunciation, by calling down upon  men the judgments of God; but  with growing experience came  tenderness, understanding and  sympathy. A few years ago  complaints were made in a  great Scottish city that the  men appointed as judges in the  juvenile courts were too young  The sentences they handed out  were severe and their attitude  to juvenile delinquents was  too harsh. The citizens knew  that older men would have  learned much during the years  ��� experiences which would  have made them wiser and mel  lower.  If I may comment on the situation I would say that I have  always found the best people,  tolerant and charitable with  human frailties. It is a hallmark of deep spirituality.  Whatever estimate they have  of themselves they know that,  but for the grace of God, they  might themselves (have been  black sheep.  Today's quotation is: When  I loathed and hated, I was  wrong; when I loved and pitied, I was right.  Oswood MacDonald has just  returned from Japan with a  promise of $1,000,000 to finance  further expansion in Cowichan  Cop'e*- Co., a mine on Vancouver Island of which he is presi-  d-nt.

Obviously, all the expense of marketing a product,  ��� including the cost of advertising ��� must be included in  the sales price. However, it is  advertising which creates the  mass markets which in turn  call for mass production. And  mass production, almost always, the end result is a lower  unit cost ��� or, more for less.  There is still another aspect  to the case in point. Generally  speaking, advertised brands  are the. best of their kind for  the. very reason that they are  the outgrowth of costly* research and' development. Manufacturers of famous brands  cannot afford to market a product that is not, to the best of  their knowledge, the best they  know how to make it. It'is as  simple as that.  A recent study byi Dr. George  Gallup emphasizes that newspaper advertising is regarded  as "news" by most readers.  We're not surprised at this,  considering the fact that advertising's first" job is to inform,  even before it sells.  To be sure, there are critics  of advertising Who claim that  many' people buy things they  don't really!"want or need ���  with money they don't have ���  because of some copywriter's  persuasiveness. While this argument sounds interesting, it  doesn't hold up.  T^ke, for instance, the auto-  . mobile. ���Advertising through  the years has made a nation  on wheels. And working along  with advertising has been the  installment buying method,  which has enabled many millions to buy cars and thereby  improve their living standards.-  In this country.? prosperity  is dependent on two factors ���  that we produce food and products, and that.people consume  them. When this balance is up-;  set,- we. have over-production  and under-consumption, resulting in economic instability.  The Canadian people can be  truly grateful to the creative-  ness of the advertising industry for helping to maintain this  healthy balance by "selling"  Canadian production to Canadian people. -  Coast News, Feb. 19, 1959.    7  LETTERS  to editor  Editor: I note in your paper  dated the 7th instant where a  scroll, containing a number of  signatures and dealing with a  highway around the North  side of Howe Sound, was displayed by Mr. A.

The sharp change in income levels and food consumi*'-'  tion patterns during the last i_0?  years is revealed by comparision-  of 1935-39 averages with 1955-57;  averages. -l  Disposable income per person:  increased    almost    four    times?  from $339 to  $1,236, while thef  consumer   price   index  doubled;!  The   average    Canadian    still  spends about 25 per cent of his  ���disposable income on food as he  did in  pre-war years, but, ���with?  his increased earnings, his tastes  have turned toward more variety  and higher quality in the menu.  There has been a definite shift  in.food! consumption patterns toward more expensive classes of  food and food already prepared.*  Cereal products, potatoes and?  sugar   are   considered   ldw-cost  sources   of   food  energy.  Popularity of the first two corn-nod.-;  ties has sagged greatly- In 1935  39, Annual consumption of cereal  products was about 206 pounds-?  per person.   In  1955-57,  it  was  160.  Similarly, potato  consumption   slipped   ffbin   192  to 154  pounds. v  Because Canadians today are  eating less bread and potatoes,  consumption of butter and mar-,  garine in the 1955-57 period was  28 pounds per person ��� 2.6  pounds less than consumption of  butter alone in 1935-39.  Milk, eggs and meat are the  principal animal protein foods  and are considered important  from the nutritional viewpoint.  While consumption of milk and  eggs was fairly stable, there  were sharp increases in consumption of red meat and poultry  meat.  From an average of 118  pounds per person in 1935-39.  red meat rose to 141. pounds in  1955-57. Poultry consumption,  soaredi from 18 to 31 pounds-  Fruits and vegetables are important in a diet as a source of  vitamins, minerals and bulk.  'They are relative V high-cost  sources of both food energy and  protein. Consumption of vegetables, other than potatoes and  tomatoes, increased from 78 to  101 pounds.  But the meteor like rise in  contraption of fruits and tomatoes from 139 to 239 pounds  per person offers even more  vivid evidence of today's more  expensive living.  Editor: "The flag that braved a thousand years the battle  and the breeze'- is not good  enough for Canada today. Why  not?        ���  In that wonderful address by  the great Canadian orator,  Nicholas Flood Davin at Boston in 1897 during the Dia  roond Celebration (Jubilee Celebration) of Queen Victoria he  said of that flag "where it is  day the winds of heaven reverently caress its immortal  folds and where it is night the  stars salute it as a fellow star."  It is also "the flag that might  fly o'er a shot shattered wreck  but never over a slave."  It looks as if British Columbia is liable to have a flag  with Wenner-Gren driving a  monorail over the vast acres  given to him, or is it wrong  that they have been given. Any  way it seems sure he and Guh-  derson will play a big part in  the makeup of the flag.  By the way, what happened  at the Overture Concert on  Thursday night that neither  "O Canada" nor "God Save the  Queen" were sung? Maybe  someone can give the' reason  for that.  B.L. Cope.

One panelist stated the world  today   isn't static,   changes   are:  drastic and we fail to recognize  that education   is a cultural product. The next speaker felt that  our culture arises from our educational system, and that tp have  the kind of education we desire  we must plan for it. Another deplored  the   lack  of respect  for  those in authority and felt, that  self respect should be one of our  greater   assets.   As parents we  ishould   show   our love for our  children, and be on the alert to  do   everything   possible  to   encourage a  desire  for education:  By the time many children reach  their teens, it appears they hav.  lost the desire to  satisfy their  curiosity and are  not as   eager  to   learn   as they were in the  primary grades.  The following paints were  produced: That education has  lost some of its dignity; Parents  shirk their responsibi.litie*j and  expect too much of the school;  We cannot expect to pr.oduce  pood citizens if we do not set a  high standard in our own conduct; Tlhe mora, fibre of our  nation is weakened..  The succeeding panelist suggested the following change.*?  in our school, curriculum be  made: Both sight reading and  phonics be used; Less study of ^  ancient history and more about  the affairs of our world today:  special courses were advocated  This exchange of opinions  concluded with the feeling  that nations spend millions on  defence and the amount spent  on education is negligible.
