 Provincial Libr-  Victoria  C  Just Fine Food  DANNY'S  DINING   ROOM  Phone Gibsons 140  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C. Volume 12, Number 12, March 19,1959.  RAY  WHITING  RADIO-CONTROLLED  PHONE  gA     GIBSONS  24 HR. COURTEOUS SERVICE  A derrick for the wharf, a  third lane for slow traffic uphill on Sechelt Highway, the  road to Squamish, better navigational lights and summer  floats for pleasure craft were  all supported by the Gibsons  and Area Board of Trade at  its monthly meeting Monday  night in Peninsula Hotel Dining room. Under chairmanship  of Walter Nygren, 36 persons  sat down.  Need for a derrick on the  government wharf was discussed and speakers including Dal  Triggs and Mr. Nygren revealed the federal department desired more data on the type of  freight handled over the wharf  It was explained building ma  terials, fuel barrels, boom  chains, fish nets and other  things were involved. A good  derrick on the wharf could also  be used for launching small  P-Veaj^ure ciiaft which wofold  do away with the need for a  ramp. Mr. Nygren explained  Egmont and Madeira Park  have derricks and he could  see no reason why Gibsons  should not have one.  A letter was read from the  newly formed hospital committee thanking the board for its  support of a hospital at the  centre of population.  It was decided after discussion not to support the Squamish road petition but to send  a resolution instead. C.P. Bal-  RCMP urges populace  help keep district clean  If you want to live. in an  area free of law-breakers be  willing to give the police necessary information and also be  prepared to appear in court as  a witness.  This was the advice given  the Gibsons and area Board of  Trade at Monday night's meeting in the Peninsula Hotel by  Cpl. G.R. Ruggies of the RCM-?  He added that all information  given the police is held in  strictest   confidence.  Discussing juvenile delinquency he suggested the environment of children when  young had considerable effect  on this problem and he believed it was better at the start to  teach a child right from wrong  so they would have this knowledge in later life.  A child, he said, is going to  learn something. It is a process  that cannot be stopped and the  child might as well learn right  things as those that are wrong.  He cited the example of an 11  year old boy, arrested after a  career of burglary, who said  he learned what he knew from  crime comics and other cheap  publications.  Respect was necessary and  the first thing a child should  learn is to respect itself by  first learning to do something.  Lack of respect was the biggest  problem todayi, he said.  Kindred feeling among students at school, forms a union  and it bursts forth in a rebellious outburst as a result of the  many don'ts they experience  and things reach the point  where they do not even confide in their parents. It is up  to the parents to put things in  the right places. "Your children," he said,  "are your  ad-  March 21 show  Roberts Creek Players' Club  in presenting its) show on  March 21 expects to display  some unusual talent. Soldiers  who have trained for years  could not hope to emulate these  marching stalwarts, and it is a  certainty that Mr. Zeigfield  were he alive today, would sew  up the chorus line in long-term  contracts. .Money raised will  go to St. Mary's Hospital.  Tickets sold for this show  last December will be honored  on March 21. Postponement  was caused by bad weather.  vertisement."  Discussing police problems  generally he said the police  force is only as good as the  information it works on and  the co-operation it gets from  the public. If you want to keep  the community clean you have  to stand up and fight for it.  All should be willing to give  information and appear in  court as: a witness if necessary.  Cpl. Ruggies described the  two types of prosecutions, the  public and private. Menaces to  the public come under public  prosecutions but family squabbles come under private prosecutions and the police do not  take part in them until violence is determined.  ensioners  p  meet oftener  The Old Age Pensioners association met in the Kinsmen  clubhouse March 16 when more  than 50 persons attended. Mrs;  Crowhurst presided and the  minutes of the previous general and executivte meetings  were passed without question.  All expressed delight at the  visit of the provincial vice-  president, Mrs. Field who said  she was sure now her original  impressions of the branch were  going to be fulfilled. She said  each branch can provide suggestions through their executives for rules and regulations  for consideration of the provincial executive. Mrs. 'Patterson accompanied Mrs. Field.  Transportation and refreshments were in the competent  hands of Mrs. George Hunter,  Mrs. Harry Smith, Mrs. R. Emerson and Mrs. R. Finley of  the Kinettes.  In future two meetings a  month will be held, one the  first Monday, a social afternoon and the other a regular  business meeting oh the third  Monday of the month. Next  meetinvs will be April 6 and  April 20 starting at 2 p.m.  EGG  HUNT  Roberts Creek Teen Town  is holding an Easter egg hunt  on Easter Sunday at Elphinstone Park, between 12 and 1  p.m. for children seven and under. There will be prizes for  lucky eggs.  Pender Hbr. phone change  An improved automatic telephone system goes into operation on Wed., March 25, at  Pender Harbour. B.C. Telephone Company will also introduce 2-5 numbering, meaning  telephone numbers with a two-  letter prefix, followed by five  figures.  All of Pender Harbour's 245  telephone numbers will start  with the prefix TUrner-3. A  new card-type directory! containing these new numbers will  be mailed to subscribers.  The conversion to new automatic equipment, which has  taken many months to instal,  will take place at 9 a.m.,  March 25, said B.F. Abram,  North Shore district commercial manager.  Changes affecting Pender  Harbour subscribers include a  change of telephone numbers;  introduction  oi  full  harr.iDnic  ringing, which does away with  coded ringing; a change in the  procedure for calling another  person on party lines, and a  reduction of the number of per  sons on many party lines to a  maximum of six per line.  Tne special procedure for  calling another person on the  ame party line, said Mr. Abram, is to dial "19," after  which the subscriber will hear  a second tone ��� the signal to  dial the full TUrner 3 telephone number. After dialing  the full listed number, the  subscriber must hang up while  the other phone rings. After  ���.vaiting about 24 seconds, the  calling party should lift the  receiver. The called party,  when answering the phone,  will hear a special tone (like  the ticking of a clock) indicating that he is being rung by a  party on his line.  lentine said tlie government  did not pay attention to petitions because of name duplications, and the fact some of  the names were not property  holders in the area concerned.'  The board backed the Squamish road resolution of Sechelt  Board of Trade to the B.C.  Chamber of Commerce convention. Mr. Nygren was of the  opinion completion of the road  would mean a great deal towards development of this part  of the country.  Dal Triggs asked for support  'towards.) obtaining a blinker  light on the tip of Popham Island as an aid to navigation to  the gap. He maintained people  not familiar with the coast  have difficulty in finding their  way. He also suggested the  blinker light in Gibsons harbour should have a color  change because the present  green light was not too noticeable in view of the green background surrounding it. He suggested an orange light. He asked the board to support a move  towards obtaining part of the  present shed on the government wharf as a storage place  for fishing gear of local fishermen. Letters covering these  point�� will be directed to the  proper departments.  Tom Morrison reported he  was still working on the improved reception for TV" in  this area in line with other  boards of trade as far away as  Powell River. It is hoped that  eventually there will be a  booster station somewhere  along the coastline to help  out.  Mr.' Nygren in offering  thanks to the government for  the breakwater now nearing  completion said he was of the  opinion that in two years time  it will be just as crowded. Mr.  Ballentine said he was* disappointed when it was started  because he preferred the original breakwater plan on a  more expansive scale. However  he was thankful for what we  had received and offered the  suggestion there should be  summer floats placed north of  the wharf ramp outside the  breakwater to take care of visiting pleasure  craft.  George Hunter, water taxi  driver, said most of the inlets  on Gambier and up towards  Port Mellon and beyond to Mc-  Nab'a Creek were fiiled with  tourist vessels^ and craft from  Vancouver area. He thought  having floats available at Gibsons would attract some of  these vessels to a safe haven.  The board plans to see what  can be done about more floats.  Alex Anderson whose  business is on Sechelt highway  urged the roads deparment be  approached to fill in the now  unused water ditch on the  church side of the highway in  order to allow a greater width  of road and better parking  space. Commissioner Ritchey  of the village commission said  he thought there were possibilities there for a lane for slow  traffic going up the hill if the  ditch was filled and the roadway widened.  Walt Nygren, president and  Dal Triggs, vice-president were  nominated to attend the B.C.  Chamber of Commerce convention in Vancouver shortly.  An interesting movie depicting the- work connected with  the laying of a power cable  from the mainland to Vancouver Island was shown by R.E.  Holden of B.C. Electric.  NOISY MOTORCYCLISTS  Motorcyclists may have to  curb their noise during church  services if RCMP heed- complaints made by members of  ihe United Church congregation in Gibsons. RCMP have  had noisy motorcyclists under  consideration for attention and  it is believed recent complaints  will speed the process of quietening them down.  RECORD LITTER  Constable Jim Hodgson, of  Sechelt Detachment, RCMP, is  a proud man these days. His  pure-bred Doberman Pirischer  has presented him with a record litter of  15 puppies.  1  Victor ��� 1959 B.C. Timmy  ��� representing all the handicapped children in British Columbia, is helped by your purchase of the Easter Seals now  being mailed throughout the  province.  Victor, a young Indian boy  from the Moricetown Band of  the Athabascan Tribe, is from  Smith ersi, living in Burnaby,  with foster parents, so that he  may attend school and his  treatment centre.  He is a member of the wheelchair basketball team and is  an-bitious to be a businessman  and help other children when  he grows up. Victor spent two  glorious weeks at Easter Seal  Summer Camp last year and  wants to be sure and go back  again this summer. *  The Easter Seal Campaign,  sponsored by many Lions Clubs  Kiwanis Clubs, Gyros' and  many other groups in B.C. is  now in full swing. The objective for this year is $150,000  to-continue and increase "their  work for the handicapped children who go to summer camp,  use the Bunny, Bus. now a familiar sight in many parts of  the province and stay at Easter  Seal House when in Vancouver  50 voices  in cantata  Fifty voices will be heard  when a choral group consisting  of members from three church  choirs and others will present  Maunder's Olivet to Calvary  cantata, Wednesday, March 2o  in Elphinstone High School auditorium.  Solo parts will be sung by  Mrs. W.S. Potter, Mrs. W.J.  Swartz, Mrs. Coleopy, Miss  Gustavson, Mr. Ev.J. Atlee, Mr.  Ran Vernon and Mr. R. Cloke  as Pilate. Mrs. Ran Vernon  will conduct and Mr. T. Humphries will accompany on the  piano.  Soloists ran througfh their/  parts one evening recently at  the home of Mr. Humphries  and the choir has had numerous practices with a grand rehearsal in the school auditorium. This event will commence  at 8 p.m.  Response good  on Red Cross  Early returns from the Red  Cross drive which continues  throughout March show that  last year's pace is being maintained and that at the end of  last week the total reported  was $226.  Quota for the Gibsons Port  Mellon area is $700 and with  ���Port Mellon mill employees  donating, it is expected, $125,  the drive can be considered to  be at the half-way1 mark at the  end of last week.  Canvassers have been favored with fairly good weather  and expect to have the canvass  completed before many days  pass.  Permits for two $10,000  homes, one on Dougal Rd. and  the other on Gower Point Rd.  were granted at Tuesday  night's meeting of Gibsons Village commission. The Dougal  Rd. home will be built by R.W.  Johnson of Port Mellon and  the Gower Point Rd., by John  A. Brandys. The Johnson home  The Board of School Trustees met in Gibsons March 9,  when Mr. G. Fahrni, convenor  of the finance committee, reported to the board on the budget review in Vancouver with  the   department  of  education.  Tlie department accepted the  budget as reasonable for the  1959 year, but calculation  proved that the government  was only prepared to accept  40% of the total as their share  as opposed to 45% in 1958,  leaving 60% of the cost for  the district to bear.  Arrangements were made to  present the budget to the Village of Gibsons, and to tlie rural ratepayers representatives  on March 12. The budget had  already been presented to the  Sechelt Village commission on  March 4 by Mr. Fahrni and  Mra McKee, when a resolution  of acceptance was passed.  A circular was received from  the department of education requesting school boards to examine their transportation requirements, with a view to establishment of decentralized  elementary schools, thus reducing transportation. This is  the objective of this board for  including in the coming referendum provision for construction of a new elementary school  near Hopkins Landing. Definite date for the -voting-��� oil the-  referendum cannot be set until  order-in-council has been passed by the government.  The board was informed that  seven night school classes are  ftili operating for the people  of this district. It is planned to  extend night school classes  throughout the dir)*;rict next  term provided sufficient enrolment can be obtained. Persons  interested in establishment of  particular courses in their own  area should contact the board  office in sufficient time to facilitate arrangements of instructors.  Firehail chatter  Volunteer Fire Services reports a good turnout and a  good time at the Firemen's  Ball. Raffled fire extinguishers were won by Frank Bailey  and Mrs. Irene Coleridge.  On March 20, at 6:20 p.m.,  firemen were called to a chimney fire at the Gosden home  in Gibsonr... No damage was reported.  Monday night firemen were  instructed by Cliff Mahlman  in knot tying in the dark. Rope  is an important item in life-  saving equipment and firemen  must know how to use it properly, in the dark.  Commissioner Reg Adams of  the village council visited the  Monday night firehail meeting  to discuss the 1959 budget.  will have seven rooms and the  Brandys home, five rooms.  It was reported to council  that the unused ditch on the  school hail side of Sechelt  Highway will be filled when  labor is available. This report  while not from an official  source is believed authentic.  1'nis is the ditch which was referred to at Monday night's  Board of Trade meeting.  The Public Utilities Commission superintendent of motor  carriers, W.A. Jaffray, in reply  to requests that Sechelt Motor  Transport have an earlier bus  than the 9:05 a.m. from Gibsons, reports that S.M.T. has  reported an earlier service in  the past was not a paying proposition and had to be discontinued. The problem, not yet  closed is still in the hands of  P.U.C..  Accounts totalling $382.34  were scrutinized and passed  for payment, $300 of which  was for water and the remainder general and fire protection.  TB VAN  COMING  At a meeting in the local  public health office, assistant  survey officer of the B.C. Tuberculosis Society, Mr. D.A.  Kitson, told Mrs. Emerson,  chairman of the meeting, that  the support and cooperation  he was receiving on the Sechelt Peninsula was highly  commendable.  The mobile unit of the B.C.  Tuberculosis Society will be in  the Sechelt Peninsula and area  April 1 to 15 to provide free  chest X-rays for everyone 15  years and  over.  Dr. Gordon Kincade, director of the division of T.B. con-  %*ol for B.C. . said . radiation  from a chest X-ray is negligible  A person gets as much radiation by wearing a luminous  wrist watch, and the problem  having been studied for some  time, they have come to the  conclusion that there is -no  harm to an adult person having an annual X-ray through  bis lifetime. ' '  The mobile unit will 'be in  Port Mellon, Wednesday, April  8.  Gibsons, Thursday, April"9,  from 10-12 a.m. and from 1-5  p.m. parked at United Church.

A convenient screen?  Government by commission, like radio, TV and automobiles, is. here to stay judging from remarks in the B.C. legislature  Archie Gibbs, Liberal, Oak Bay, asked that certain accounts  .ueb. as the ���P.G.iS.. and the Toll Highway and Bridge Authority  He examined by members of the legislature.  Mr. Gibbs said that such agencies or commissions had a  ijotal. debt of $220,000,000 and it was essential that the expenditures be opened to public scrutiny, Attorney-General Bonner  "Sased his refusal to allow such scrutiny on the fact the former  S-iberal government in Ottawa had declined to open books of  ���sscovm agencies.  This is of course a convenient screen behind which the  Social Credit government can hide but the day of reckoning is  siound to raise its ugly head somewhere along the line. Because  suae government says' it will not allow a certain procedure to  take place does not make it the proper thing to do- Where public  zneney is spent, unless there is some necessary secrecy about such  axpenditure, the public, through its members appointed to the  legislature should know what is going on and not have a min-  aster stand up to oay "there is your project completed but how  3___��.h we spent doing it is none of your business."  Premier Bennett's "great day for B.C." when there is no  a.et_ remember net only, public debt will be small apples com-  ���gared to the day when British Columbia will be able to boast of  -_* government that will be democratic and govern without the  aid of mirrors.  Parliamentary humor  Ihe postmaster-general at Ottawa has reported to parlia-  .xient that Canada's commemorative stamps are becoming popular and that the number printed will be increased.  Discussion on these stamps wa�� brought about by a member asking what system of allocation was used by the department  because one post office, he maintained, did not get enough of  ���_hem.  The postmaster-general, Hon. W..H. Hamilton, replied with  .some political feeling that the stamps put out by the Conserva-  3ive government were becoming more popular compared to the  .-tamps put out by their predecessors. Mr. Pickersgill, the Bona-  ���iyista-Twillingate member suggested that in view of the principle  enunciated previously by the minister that portraits of living  things were never put on stamps perhaps the members could assume the minister timed his stamp to come out on the day of the  iea.h of the Arrow jet plane.  Then Mr. H.W. Herridge, Kootenay West member asked  *:��'the minister would have the stamp redesigned to include two  **v.reaths on the wing tips to indicate the death of the aircraft in-  -lustry*. I  At this point Mr. Speaker intervened and suggested members had. spent enough time on the issue. However, during the  -xscussdon the postmaster-general said that the quantities of these  =_ommemorative stamps in 1958 started at 15 million stamps for  ���Sue first issue and rose to 25 million for the last one. This year  SO* million were printed for the Arrow issue and 32 million will  he printed for the NATO stamps which will be the second com-  :>3_ecnorative stamp for this year.  This may seem a huge number of stamps to print but if  'ime^will ponder over some of the 1958 issues ��� can you find one  _oday outside of someone's stamp collection or in the hands of  a stamp dealer? They vanish quickly. That is what makes stamp  collecting the baffling hobby it is. So many stamps are printed,  ���oxillions of them, yet when you want to locate a particular penny  i-starnp you search and probably stumble across one accidentally.  (Stamp collecting is a hobby every child should have.  In the  egislature  BY TONY GARGRAVE. MLA  Two of the most important  debates in the Legislature last  week concerned the debate on  Vote No. 200, the Minister of  Labor's salary; and the debate  on Bill 43, an act relating to  Trade-unions.  The labor policy of the government at Victoria suffers because almost nobody in the  cabinet has had experience in  labor affairs either from the  point of view of labor or management. I do not think it unfair to say that Mr. Lyle Wicks,  the minister of labor, has never evinced in his statements or  acts as minister that he really  understands the economic and  social basis of labor-management relations in modern society.  "�����* *i** ****  The CCF side of the house  feels that the employers of the  province have had too much  influence with this ministry.  The trade-union movement has  never really acquired iconfi-  dence in the minister, and this  is not because of the political  views of the minister. Mr.  George Pearson and Mr. John  Gates, former ministers of labor, were liked personally by  labor. Indeed, Mr. George  Pearson the former minister of  labor, resigned his portfolio  rather than agree to certain labor legislation of which he  disapproved.  The attitude of the government towards its own- civil  servants is, I think, a reflection of its policy to labor in  general. The attitude ���'; Of the  present government to labor in  B.C. is one of paternalism, and  paternalism is now out-of-date.  Workers must be free to form  their own organizations and  make their own policies".'-  ��?,. ��t- Vl>  ��,-�� ���_. _-  We on the CCF side of the  house were most disappointed  when the minister of labor  stood mute when labor ;was attacked earlier in the session by  Mr. Chant, minister of public  works, and Mr. Gaglardi j the  minister of highways. | We; did  not know then, but ( w. do  know now that the attack by  these two ministers was part  of a campaign to influence pub  lie opinion against the trade-  union movement and lay the  ground for the introduction of  Bill 43.  Last Thursday evening we  did all we could to prevent the  passage of Bill 43. The provisions of Bill 43 are provisions which tlie employer has  asked for and the Social Credit  government has acquiesced to.  Bill 43 will weaken labor at  the collective bargaining table  and lay down dangerous principles which are liable to be adopted by other provinces in  Canada. The most unfortunate  part of the bill is that which  allows trade-union treasuries  to be attacked by the employer through civil suits for allegedly "illegal" actions by  trade unions or trade unionists.  The CCF will oppose this bill.  s'> ��'.. ��'-     '  *V* *i- -v��  We must remember that unions want to obey the law.  Members of unions, whether  leaders or rank and file, are  liable to the full force of the  law if they violate it. What labor wants is to be protected  from raids on their treasuries,  because of actions they take in  functioning as a legitimate  trade union.  By the time you read this  column the legislature will be  moving close to adjournment.  This is my last column from  Victoria and I would like to  thank those editors who have  carried this material from the  legislature at Victoria.

The people who were called  red Indians by European explorers were neither red nor Indians.  When Columbus landed in the  New World in 1492 he believed  he had landed in the vicinity of  India and so he called the native  inhabitants Indians. A few years  later Cabot carried back to  Europe a statement that the natives of what is now Newfoundland were red-skinned. What he  meant was that they were in the  habit of painting the skin with  red ochre, but he was misunderstood. The two mistakes were  combined and have never really  been corrected in. the minds of  many people.  Was Slavery Ever Accepted  In Canada?  The marketing and use of  slaves was icommon in Canada  until the beginning of the 19th  century. French explorers and  furr-traders used Indian slaves.  In the 17th century Negro slaves  were imported into the colony.  In 1689 many were brought from  the West Indies to relieve a  labor shortage, and were widely  used throughout Canada, largely  Iby merchants and fur-traders.  ..After the Conquest, slavery became more firmly established.  In Nova Scotia the British who  settled at Halifax in 1749  brought with them a large number of slaves. The migration of  American colonists during the  revoh'tionarv period resulted in  a further influx.  By ithe end of the 18th century anti-slavery feelings were  becoming widespread. John  Graves Simcoe persuaded the  legislature of Upper Canada in  July 1793 to pass a law" forbidding the import of slaves into  the province and providing for  the freedom of slave childreii  when they reached the age of  25. In Lower Canada the courts  refused to recognize the rights  of a master over his slaves, thus  in effect abolishing the legal  status of slavery. In Nova Scotia  in 1787 the legislature refused  to include a reference to slavery  in a piece of legislation on the  grounds that slavery did not  exist there, and the courts of  Nova Scotia, New Brunswick,  Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland invariably interpreted  the law against the interests of  Here's how busy people  save  and  Haven't time to get to the bank ?

Careful, long-term studies oi  a large number of patients with  high blood pressure have shown  that the mere fact blood pressure is elevated*, even to extremely high levels, does not  regulary produce any symptoms  whatever.  It is only when high blood  pressure has been present for a  sufficiently long time to cause  damage to the heart and blood  vessels that the patient is likely  to notice any real signs of ill  heaSlth.  On   the   average,  the   disease  takes   10   to 15 years to reach  this stage, but many patients remain  free of  complications for  > as long as 30 years;.  Why, then, does a diagnosis of  high blood pressure arouse such  serious anxiety in so many patients?  This seems to be just another  example of the well-known fact  that bad news' travels faster  than good. The death of a friend  or relative from high blood pressure always makes a profound  impression, but nothing short of  a widely publicizezd, large scale  research project is likely to call  attention to the very large number of people with equally high  blood pressusres who continue to  enjoy excellent health year after  year.  Another explanation of the  bad reputation high blood pressure has acquired lies in the  fact that it may be caused by  any one of a long list of diseases.  Therefore, it is often blamed  for complications which are due  to the underlying disease rather  than to the blood pressure itself.  For example, many older patients have a mild form of high  blood pressure caused by a hardening of the arteries which commonly occurs with increasing  age. If such a patient suffers a  stroke or a heart attack it is  ���usually arteriosclerosis .��� or  hardening of the arteries ���  which is responsible. But all too  often the elevation of blood pressure gets the blame.  In order to prevent unjustified  over-emphasis on this condition,  in older people, many experts  now recommend that the gradual  increase of blood pressure which  occurs With . increasing a g e  should not even be included in  the list of their abnormal signs.  The fact that high blood pressure is not a single disease with  a single cause makes it necessary  to examine each case carefully  in order to detect any underlying disease which may oe  present, since some of these con-,  itions are curable. Unfortunately,  in only a small percentage of  patients such underlying diseases  can be ,fo.und; hence it is customary* to group all the remaining eases under the heading of  "essential hypertension," whicl.  is just a roundabout way of say-  fag high blood pressure of unknown cause.  The search for the cause or  causes of essential hypertension  is being carried on in hundreds  of research laboratories all over  the world including several in  Canada. There are many promising leads to follow, for the  height of the blood pressure is  regulated by a great many factors, any one of which might  prove to be at fault, but the  mystery as to cause still remains  : unsolved.  Although the chances of finding a cure for a disease arc  greatly_improved when the cause  is discovered, lack of this knowledge has not prevented an intensive search from being iriade  for drugs which will be capable  of reducing the blood pressure  safely and consistently.  During the past 10 years, this  search has led to the discovery  of several promising new drugs.  Further improvements are beinec  made every year. And although  none~bf these drugs -can be considered a really (satisfactory  form of treatment for high blood  pressure, their discovery represents a definite step forward  w-ien compared to the almost  complete lack of effective medical treatment for hypertension  a few short years ago.  'Strangely enough, the new  drugs have proved to be of greater value in treating the most  severe forms of hypertension  than in the_management of the  ordinary, uncomplicated case.  IThis apparent contradiction is  due to the tendency of all the  known blood pressure lowering  drugs to produce various more  or less unpleasant side effects  which often make the natlent  with mild hypertension feel much  worse than he did before treatment was started.  Since the only purpose one  can hope to achieve in treating  the uncomplicated case is to  postpone the onset of complications, and since these may not  occur for a very long time evei  iif the patient receives no treat-  IN TWO PARTS  ment, many doctors feel that the  use of the new drugs in patients  who have no symptoms should  fee limited to the fortunate few  in whom they produce a definite  lowering of the blood pressure  without any unpleasant side effects.  In patients who are already  suffering serious disability as a  result of high blood pressure, on  the other hand, such' side effects  may be a small price to pay for  the improvement which is often  achieved by careful use of various d'rugs.  It is obvious, then, that the  main hope for the future lies  in an ever-broadening program  of research, not only on high  blood pressure itself but on its  equally dangerous running-mate,  arteriosclerosis;  In the meantime, it should be  possible to lift a tremendous  burden of unnecessary anxiety  and suffering from the shoulders  of the great majority of hypertensive patients by merely putting into practice what has already been discovered about the  natural course of the disease.

SCOT,  KA-rtVI.  IHKABtlAlrf  _F  w  NEW   TESTAMENTARIAN  When the famous Christian  Japanese leader, Kagawa, spoke  at the World's Sunday School association at Toronto in 1950, he  startled the audience one day  by declaring he was a New Test-  ament_aian.,  Other speakers had identified  themselves by giving their  church -connections and in some  cases their points of view. Dr.  Kagawa, who is the soul of toleration and goodwill, made it clear  that, while appreciating the unfolding of God's truth in the Old  Testament, it was only in the  life and teaching of Jesus that a  perfect revelation of God was  found. All else was preparatory  to this.  Jesus' declared repeatedly: "It,  hath been said by them-of jold  times . ��� .'"���bit I say unto .ypii."  He quoted the opening ^verses of  Hebrews: "God who at sundry  times and in diver's manners  speaks in times past unto the  fathers by the prophets, hath iri  these last days spoken unto us  by His Son."  *    *    *  I have heard hundreds of sermons from the Old Testament  and generally been helped by  them, but it is possible, as Kagawa said, to live and think in  Old Testament terms and to forget that Jesyjs came in the fulness of time with the supreme  revelation of God. It was He who  said: "He that hath seen me  hath seen the Father."  Jesus taught that God is near.  He is not a far-off deity, cold  and distant as the stars, unable  or unwilling to hear us when we  call. We can lean upon Him in  our loneliness and rest upon*  Him in our weariness. He is  close at hand.  Speak to Him, thou, for He  hears,  And   spirit   with   spirit   can  meet;  Closer   is-���He than breathing  And   nearer   than hands and  feet.  -P    *    *  It is one of the strange facts  of Christian history that so much  has been said and written about  the sternness of God. I have on  my desk here a book written by  a distinguished Bishop less tnan  a century ago. As I read what  he has to say about God's attitude to sinners, I find it hard  to believe that this man���scholar  and leader though he was���could  ever have studied the spirit and  teachings of Jesus. When some  writer said! recently that we  needed more "old-time religion^"  he was answered by one who  said, the trouble is that most of  it is not old enough. We need  to go back ��� not a century or  two ��� but nineteen centuries,  to Jesus.  It is a strange thing, a dramatic thing, to think of this Japanese convert Kagawa, standing before a vast audience ���  most of whom had several generations of Christian ancestors  behind them, while in his case it  was quits different, and pleading with them to get back to  Jesrs.  It was in that same building,  Convocation Hall, Toronto, that at  the close of a Conference of students from all over the world, a  negro. James Aggrey, stood before them and said: "Let us close  this   Conference  by  singing:  Jesus shall reign where'er the  sun  Doth his successive journeys  run;  His kingdom stretch from  shore to shore,  Till moons shall wax and wane  no more.  Our quotation to-day is a saying by Jesus: "He that hath seen  me, hath seen the Father."  Weddings  PUTMAN ��� WEAL  A wedding of local interest  took place in Vancouver at Kit-  silano United Church on Feb.  27 uniting Margaret Grace  Weal, elder daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. Albert Weal, Sechelt  Highway, Roberts Creek, and  Lome Wilfred Putman, only  son of Mrs. A. Putman, Vancouver.  The bride, given in marriage  by her father, wore a ballet  length gown of blue satin brocade fashioned with scoop  neck, and a matching veiled  feather, bandeau. She carried  stephanoti�� and pink rosebuds.  Attending her sister was  Mrs. Doris Moe .similarly attired in blush pink with which  she wore a matching feather  clip hat. Her bouquet was of  pink and white carnations. Mr.  Gus Mytko wa�� best man.  At the reception held in the  new home of the young couple,  the bride's uncle, Mr. Herbert  Lehman, proposed the bridal  toast.  Mr. and Mrs. Putman spent  their honeymoon on Vancouver  Island?      ���������������-������-���; ������ ���:'���;-������������^���,y**y  H^e plan to rest so .
