In view of the labor troubles experienced in British Colombia an editorial from the Sunday Times of London, England,  June 1 issue, contains information while not new, is worth repeat-  ���EQg-This editorial is based on a book by B.C. Roberts and publish-  <ad by the Institute of Economic Affairs. Its title is Trade Unions  m a Free Society. The editorial reads as follows:  " 'The choice which lies before the unions,' writes Mr. B.C.  ffiflberts in an authoritative new book, 'is either to accept the existence of private enterprise and a market economy as a desirable  system... or to accept the implications of the ideology of Socialism, which could involve the abandonment of free bargaining,  the right to strike...'  "It is not necessary, if the unions choose freedom, for them  to identify themselves with the employers' interests; sometimes  ���Jheir interests are parallel, sometimes competitive. What ths  /���"-hoice does imply is acknowledgement of the fact that unbridled  pursuit of the immediate sectional interests either of individual  anions or of wage-earners as a whole may defeat its own ends.  Not only may wage-increases unjustified by productivity cause  inflation, which injures everybody, or lead to unemployment:  stoppages of work as a method of bargaining pressure reduce the  economic product from which wages have to be paid, and may  aause damage to other workers much greater that the benefit  that the strikers hope for.  "A gross example of the latter process is now before our  ayes in the shape of the dispute at Cammell Laird's shipyard.  There, a six-week-old strike of 1,750 boilermakers has resulte  ih. 2,500 men of other trades being laid off and may lead to the  alosing of the whole yard. The dispute is of the notorious demar-  (jr-_tion kind ��� which craftsmen shall do a particular job. In effect it is a strike by one union against another. While unions be-  have in this primitive way! they cannot be regarded as fit for the  responsibility that falls on them in a free economy.  The printing dispute is a sample of another kind of shortcoming on the union side. A claim has been raised by the print-  _a_g, unions with the master printers and the Newspaper Society  ^representing provincial newspapers), for higher wages and shorter hours. This claim as rejected, on the ground that without higher productivity it was merely inflationary and damaging to the  industry: a counter-offer was turned down by the unions. It is  not necessary here to argue the merits of the dispute. The cru-  ���j-ial point is ihat when such a deadlock, is reached one of two  laroad courses must be taken. Either a settlement is reached by  ��aaciliation or arbitration, or there is a trial of physical strength  '-.he printing employers offered arbitration: the unions, by refusing, it, seem to have chosen the path of war.  "The right to strike is vital to the unions. But here is a  <aase where the threat of strike action has been consciously preferred to resort to peaceful method which could bring an impartial  ���settlement. If circumstances justify higher wages or shorter  lanurs in the printing industry, an arbitrator would so find. If  they do not, a strike could only have the effect of reducing the  industry's ability to pay; for some of its units are economically  ���wuliierable, and there is constant pressure of competition from  gaanters abroad and from new methods of reproduction. Meanwhile many other men and women will have been put out of  ���work, the life of the country ��� which runs on printing ��� will  foax-e been dislocated, and the long-suffering public done a grave  ii-iury."*  Quarterly to  be published  The first publication exclusively devoted to reviewing and  criticising Canadian literature  will be published at the University of British Columbia in September.  The quarterly journal, entitled  "Canadian Literature: a quarterly of criticism and review," will  Jbe edited by George Woodcock,  an assistant professor in the  UBC English department.  Whe review's first task, Mr.  Woodcock said, will be to keep  readers informed of what is happening from year to year in the  Canadian literary world.  Each issue will carry a full review section of current Canadian writing and the first issue  each year will carry a complete  bibliography of books written by  a Canadian or about Canada.  Other articles will deal with  reassessments of past writers  and literary movements. Canadian novelists, poets and writers  will be asked to state their views  about writing and special attention will be given to French-  Canadian literature.  English, French and American  critics will also be asked to review Canadian books and dis-.  cuss Canadian authors. Entire  issues of the magazine will also  be devoted to specific fields, Mr.  Woodcock said. The first of  these, to be published next  spring, will deal with Canadian  drama.  "We have no intention of promoting the kind of cultural nationalism which suggests that  ���(being Canadian is an initial virtue in a piece of writing," Mr.  Woodcock said.  rfysft  Preparad by the Reseerch Staff of  5 H C Y-C LOPED IA   C A NAD I AHA  What Canadian  Settement  Was  Occupied By U.S. Marines?  Argentia in Newfoundland.  This,, fishing settlement was oc-  t^apied by a detachment of United  States Marines on Jan. 25, 1941,  to establish the first lend-lease  Hase-- acquired from the British  ��overnment. Most of the 700 in-  -katufcants at that time moved to  JBrfceshwater, a new town a few  ���Males away. Argentia is situated  am Hacentia Bay on Newfoundlands south coast, about 82  amies from St. John's. The anchorage used by Prime Minister  Winston Churchill and President  S^suikl-n D- Roosevelt for their  MMntic Charter meeting in August 1941 was near Argentia.  Who Provided A Canadian  Refuge for Jefferson Davis?  Publisher John Lovell of Mont-  jreal. Not long after the Ameri  can Civil War the former presi-  ?ie__st of the Confederacy, Jeffer-  aoan Davis, took refuge with his  family    in    Lovell's    Montreal  3-ame,   situated   on the present  site    of    Morgan's    department  store. Lovell, who was born in  Ireland,   came   to  Canada with  his parents at the age of ten in  1820 and set up his own printing  shop in Montreal in 1835. He is  feest known as the publisher of  the first Canadian school  text-  Ssooks and of a series of directories.   He   imported   the   first  steam printing press brought to  Canada. Lovell died in Montreal  an 1893.  mgapore  has famous  Raffles hotel  (Mr. Sanderson, Vancouver  newsman, has completed a two.  month, 12,000-mile voyage to  the Orient aboard the Orient  and Pacific liners Himalaya  and Chusan. This series concerns some of the ports he has  visited.)  When people think of Singapore they think of Raffles. And  well ; they might because Raffles is an hotel with a worldwide reputation for service,  food  and  enjoyment.  Its spacious lobby, show windows, stores, gardens and open  air lounge became the -meeting place for hundreds of passengers from the Orient and  Pacific Lines' vessels Himalaya  and Chusan when the two liners met here on round-the-  world cruises.  A survey indicates the European population of Singapore  ��� which is both the name of  the island as well as the city  ��� is not too happy about Britain's decision to give the colony independence. Some feel  there will be a violent reaction  to the change. They say the  People's Party, which is the  popular political group, is pro-  communist and could lead the  island away from the Commonwealth.  Although only one and one-  half miles north of the Equator  in the tropical portion of Malaya, the lawns are green, gardens fresh-looking and flowers  abound. The streets are clean  and wide, dust is unknown and  the homes, with the exception  of portions of the downtown  area,   are  spacious and   clean ,  Reason for the greenness is  the fact the island receives  about 95 inches of rain each  year. But, unlike Vancouver,  the rain comes in the form-of  thunder and lightning storms.  It usually rains for an hour or  so each afternoon, but the deluge is preceded and followed  by sunshine.  The temperature seldom goes  below 75 degrees. The majority  of citizens are Chinese and representatives from 58 countries*  including Canada, have offices  in the city.  The colony of Hong Kong,  next stop on this trip, is a mec-  ca for thousands of globe-trotting tourists, busy people, unbelievable bargains and along  with it all a world-renowned  harbour.  Shopping in either Victoria  City, on the island of Hong  Kong, or at Kowloon is differr  ent than any other place. Bargains abound, prices the cheapest in the world, and duty non-  existant. -.;  The harbour itself is one of  the world's most beautiful and  the climate sub-tropical and  free from extremes although  there is some humidity which  hits hard at Canadian and Amt  erican visitors not used to itj.  Persons visiting the Colony  for the first time are amazed  at the stores and the manner"*  in which the shopkeepers display their wares. Tourists from  the Chusan found they could  be measured for a suit of clof  thes in the morning and have  it delivered aboard the ship  the same evening. Women and  men alike found the cost was  less than half the price of a  suit in Canada or the United  States. \.  Many Chinese or East Indian,  tailor shops are represented by  clerks in the streets. These repj.  resentativ.es approach the tourists and try to induce them into  their stores. Once inside, many  find it difficult to refuse to  buy, because of the bargains.  ' A number of stores have representatives on the dockside.  Watches and jewelry also  are extremely cheap in comparison with prices in America  and practically every shopper  can bargain with the salesman  to reduce the price even further than advertised.  Some of the best watches in  the world ��� name brands seen  all over America ��� can be  purchased for as little as 25  Canadian dollars.  The money, exchange problem isn't too great as Canadian  dollars are approximately six  times as valuable as Hong  Kong dollars, with the result  that an article priced at 120  Hong Kong dollars, sells for  $20 Canadian. Meals and night  club life in Hong Kong are also  very reasonable.   ���.-..���.  MANY HAPPY  RETURNS OF  THE DAY  ���Grassick  Toronto   Telegram  Baptist Church is dedicated at Sechelt  Sechelt's Bethel Baptist  Church in a beautiful ceremony  Sunday, June 28, dedicated the  new church as a house of God.  Mr. G. Shears, on behalf of  the B.C. Convention board presented the keys of the church  to the senior deacon, Mr. M.  Myers, ho accepted them on  behalf of the congregation. Mr.  M. Gilpin, speaking for the  Eaptist Convention Board,  brought good wishes from all  the Bapitst churches throughout B.C.  An appropriate message was  brought by a past minister of  the church, Rev. Duncan Ritchie, guest speaker who, with  Mrs. Ritchie were visiting from  Vancouver, where Mr. Ritchie  is minister of Kilarney Bapitst  Church.  The inspiring dedication sentences were led by the pastor,  Rev. E. Jessop. This was followed by the dedication prayer  led by Mr. Ritchie.  Mrs. D. Smith, church clerk  gave an interesting report on  the pas thistcry of the church,  from its early beginning in the  1920's as a small group meeting in the school house, to the  opening of the fine new church  in February,  1959.  The newly formed junior  choir, supported by a senior  trio, Mrs. B. Stockwell, Mrs.  Thelma Prittie and Fay Berkin,  sang The Lord is my Shepherd  to the tune of Crimond. The  trio later gave a beautiful rendition of . Mendelson's Lift  Thine Eyes.

The Bank of Nova Scotia's new system of "revolving" credit  Last year the BNS. introduced SCOTIA  PLAN LOANS. The response was so  enthusiastic, the BNS now offers a  second kind of Scotia Plan credit ���  also life-insured at no extra cost to you.  How Scotia Plan  Cheque-Credit Works  1. Select a monthly payment that  you can afford. You then apply for  twelve times that amount.  2- When your application has been  approved you receive a book of  special cheques.  3. Use these cheques whenever you  need funds���good anytime* anywhere in Canada.  4. Each month the BNS sends you  a statement of cheques written, payments to be made, and the amount  of credit still open;  5. Your monthly payment is one-  twelfth of the amount of credit you  have used, so far.  6. As you make a payment, the  amount of the payment becomes  available again for your use.  I���HEXAMPLE.��� ���  Assume you are eligible for  Cheque-Credit up to $600.  You write a cheque for $100.  Your monthly statement  from the BNS will indicate  one cheque used for $100, a  payment due of $8.33 (1/12  of $100), a charge on the  $100 of 500 per month, and  credit remaining of $500.  Find out all about Scotia Plan  Cheque-Credit at your nearest  branch of the BNS, soon. Ask at the  Scotia Plan Department.

The  Sechelt Kinsmen have shown  an interest in the Association's  endeavours. Once again three  of their members were present  at the meeting and for this they  are thanked.  During the month of June,  classes were held for the retarded children of School District No. 46 in the Anglican  church hall at. Sechelt on Thurs  day and Friday each week.  These classes were held to give  some idea of how transportation would work and give pupil�� and teachers a chance to  meet.  Thanks to the school board  the children from the Roberts  Creek and Gibsons areas are  able to travel to Sechelt in empty high school buses driven by  Mr. Yates and Mr. Garry. The  Pender Harbour people have  been forced to depend on private cars as there is a gap in  the school bus service at that  end. Perhaps when the Pender  Harbour people read this they  will discuss the matter with  friends and find some people  willing to drive the children  down for the two or three  school days each week next  term.

These two  have in the six days they have  been with the children, given  them something to be happy  about, something that is theirs  alone. For most of them who  have been denied the right to  go to school, here at last is ari  opportunity to climb aboard  the yellow school bus or come  by car to attend a class with  others where they are given  things to do at their own level  of ability.  The hope is that the association will become stronger  through the assistance of the  people of the Sunshine Coast  and help provide this much  needed special .class for the si*  children of school age arid those  of pre-school age who will be  needing the help. At present  the association works on a slim  budget ��� a small grant administered by the school board.  Both Mrs. Evans and Mrs.  Klein have given their services  free this month so that there  may be something on hand to  buy much needed school supplies for the class next term.  The association welcomes  anyone interested in the welfare of\ children at the meetings to add their moral support. These children can, with  training, become useful and ac  ceptable citizens within the  community instead of -social  outcasts and a burden on the  public.  ATTEND  CHURCH  ;- Members of the YMCA Camp  ^Elphinstone staff descended on  Gibsons Sunday morning to attend church service. Some attended St. Mary's Catholic  church and others St. Bartholo-  me's Anglican or Givson Memorial United church.
