COURTEOUS SERVICE  TRAP SHOOTIN  RANGE OPEN  Sunday, June 21, will see the  official opening of the latest  trap shooting range of the Sechelt Peninsula. Trap enthusiasts; in this area have anxiously awaited the completion of  this project, which was begun  last February by Gibsons Rod  and Gun Club.  During the four ensuing  months,  club  members  donat-  School plans  are reviewed  The Board of School Trustees met Mr. J.L. Davies on  June 8 in the board office to  . review the architectural plans  of the addition to the Elphinstone High School. Mr. Potter,  Mr. Bennie and Mr. Chaster  attended and many details  were discussed and approved.  Immediately the certificate  of appproval of Referendum  No. 2 is received from the department of education the secretary will call for tenders  for clearing sites for the new  schools, and also for tenders  for the erection of the school  buildings. Advertisements will  appear in the Coast News.  Further work on Madeira  Park grounds, Pender Hsjrbour  ���school grounds and E'gmont  school grounds will be carried  out, in the hope these playgrounds will be ready for fall  classes.  It has been brought to the  attention    of the ... board   that  public   passengers .. have been  riding on the school buses, and  the secretary wais instructed to  write to Sechelt Motor'Transport advising  them that regulation��   governing   transportation must toe followed. A spe- .  cial meeting of the transportation committee was called for  June   10    to   review   present  routes and arrange transportation for the next school year.  The secretary was requested  to send a resolution to the B.C.  School    Trustees'    Association.'  for presentation to the convention,  asking that  increases in  departmental  grant for water  transportation   be   given   con-  sdderation.  Mrs. Mary Hercus, Mr. W.G.  Peers and Mr. G.A. Cooper informed the board of their intention of attending various  courses at summer school at  U.B.C.  Each trustee was given a  list of names submitted by the  Grade VI and Grade VII students at Sechelt Elementary  school and a name will be chos  en for the new Sechelt Junior  High School at the meeting of  June 22.  A letter of thanks from Heather Lang and Merilee Fahrni,  on behalf of the Sechelt School  Band was received, expressing  appreciation to the board for  the assistance given in order  that they might compete at the  Abbotsford Brass Band competition.  ed their time and equipment to  clear and level the two acre,  fan-sha-lped area; and to build  necessary fixtures to accommodate trap fittings. Local businesses who contributed freely of their time and equipment  were Bob Nimmo, Ed Shaw,  Smith and, Peterson Construction Ltd., Walt Karateew, Mel  Hough and R. Ritchey. Without this generous assistance,  the project would not have  been possible.  Trap shooting was introduced to the peninsula recently  when Sechelt Rod and ' Gun  . Club built a range at Wilson  . Creek. Great interest was created in this increasingly popular sport and a demand grew  for facilities in the Gibsons  area. And after many months  of ha(rd work Gibsons Rod and  Gun Club is justly proud in  offering sportsmen in the vicinity another fine recreational  facility.   *  Participants, novice or pro.  and spectators will foe welcome  on Sunday at the opening. The  range is located two miles west  of Gibsons, opposite Seaview  Cedetery, on the highway. This  is an interesting spectator  sport, there is ample parking  space and refreshments will  be available. Trap shooters  from Sechelt R & G will be  on hand for this occasion. So  come on, bring those old fowling pieces and join us on the  range, Sunday at 1 p.m.  Garden club  seesrrtiw rose  It was real pleasure for about  60 persons at the May meeting  of Gibsons Garden Club when  Mrs. Whitely of Vancouver  fashioned corsages; of tiny miniature roses, and yellow daisies  One new rose, no larger than  a thumb nail, named Bonica,  not yet available in Canada,  was especially; beautiful.'  Driftwood was used in many  table arrangements to create  jungle and tropical illusions,  while more formal arrangements of tulips, iris and lilacs  in shallow bowls of all shapes  and sizes became artistic gems.  Mrs. Whitely was applauded  for her entertaining demonstration. The corsages were  drawn for and the lucky winner were, Mrs. Ed Grant, Mrs.  Winn, Mrs. Parry and Mrs.  Webb. The next meeting will  be at the home of Mrs Mainwaring at 2 p.m., June 23. Visitors will be welcome.

This group was formed to  investigate the improvement  of hospital facilities for the entire peninsula. The master plan  sets out the sequence of action  that must be followed . before  the improved facilities can be  realized.  The first step is to prove a  need for improved facilities  exists. The study group is currently  compiling   statistics   to  show the growth of the Peninsula both in population and activity is sufficient to justify an  irnprovement in hospital facilities. Population, school registration, electrical installations,  land sales, car registrations*,  a'nd so on, are being studied to  establish growth trends for the  Peninsula.  Once the need for improved  hospital facilities has been established, approval in principle must be obtained from the  provincial government.

ERICKSON  After a recent trip to Britannia along the scenically  magnificent highway it seems  some first hand information  would be of interest to residents here.  After closing down in March  1958, the mine was re-opened  tc  some  extent  in  December,  some trouble with washouts is  eliminated.  There have been considerable building improvements in  Squamish. The Chief tan Hotel,  in the new part which was destroyed by fire, is a most attractive building, including a  cafe and lounge.  ^?P.G,E. car shops, logging, the  1958.

Comrades Sheridan, Coffey and  Hill were appointed as delegates  to the zone meeting at Vananda  *or the following Saturday.  Donations approved included  Kinsmen Club, Sechelt, $25 cowards the new ambulance; $50  to St. Mary's Hospital, proceeds  of the last Bingo night; $20 to  Selma Community Club towards  the cost of their street lighting.  In conjunction with the Ladies  Auxiliary a scholarship of $20  will be given the Sechelt Elementary School.  A smoker held at the Selma  Club rooms was such a success  that a repeat will be held each  month on the last Fridsy evening. :  Pender Harbor  PTA Sives $100  At the June 11 meeting of  Pender Harbour P.T.A. it was  decided to donate $100 to the  elementary school for the purchase of books. Mr. Spicer stated that the school board will  buy a radio for the Madeira  Park Elementary School. A  ���PTA program committee has  been chosen for the coming  school year.  Dr Peter Stonier was the  guest speaker and he gave an  interesting and informative  talk oh accidents with children  The Fish Derby will be held  July 3, 4 ad 5. There will be  $100 in prizes, first prize being $50. There will also be a  hidden weight prize. Bumper  advertising strips will be available.  the only one used for mining  operations. The power house  and copper plant are the only,  operations at the townsite. Before the shutdown there were  800 men at Britannia while  the present payroll is about  350 men.  It is doubtful if the large  bunk houses, men's hall, and  hotel will be used again. Single men can batch and there  are private boarding houses,  Car pools are arranged to travel to the lower level for each  shift.  During the shut-down many  families had moved to the  Beach, others to Squamish or  other mines, but new families  are now moving into the houses. During the winter a small  store was operated in a house  and mail was handled at the  Beach. The elementary school  has two teachers and other pupils go by bus to the Squamish  High School.  Since the P.G.E. Railway  has operated, Britannia's property has been enclosed by a  six foot steel fence with several gates. Visitors can get in  at any time and there is a cot  fee shop and cafe and a large  store.  , From Britannia to Squamish there is a gravel road which  will be blacktopped as soon as  shoppers are keeping the boom  in Squamish going.  Tony Gargrave  concludes visit  After spending two weeks on  the Peninsula, Mr. Tony Gar-  graive, MLA, left for Vancouver on Thursday, June 18.  While in the district he was  the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Dave  Rees at Gibsons.  Most of the local member's  time was spent making personal calls in the district but  he did address the Pender Harbour . High School graduation  ceremonies, the -Pender Harbour Board of Trade dinner  meeting, and the executive and  shop stewards committee of the  Port Mellon Pulp and Sulphite  Union.-  Before Mr. Gargrave returns  to Powell River where he  hopes to spend the summer  he will spend five days in Regina as the guest of Mr. T.C.  Douglas, premier of Saskatche-  an. When Mr. Douglas was visiting Vancouver recently he invited the Mackenzie member to  visit Regina to study the activities of the government  there.  A 34 piece band with a drill team of 40 will be one of the  attractions at Gibsons July 1 celebration.  The band, the 103rd Squadron RCAF Cadet Band from  North Vancouver, will support the top-notch drill team of 46  members.  It is expected there will be three bands available for the*  big parade which will commence at 1 p.m. Efforts are being made  to have the Sechelt Elementary School band and the Accordioa  Band from Sechelt also in the parade.  Sports have been arranged for children following the parade and there will be a water display including races, diving,  log rolling, greasy pole for all  ages. The day will conclude  with square dancing with modern dancing for the wind-up.  All this was arranged at  Tuesday night's meeting of the  July 1 committee in the Legion  Hall at Gibsons under chairmanship of Ike Mason. - There  were representatives there  from various organizations but  others should have been present as they were involved im  the celebration.  Mrs. Wynne Stewart reporting for the Board of Trade on  the float situation said she had  about 30 lined up with another  15 or more possible.  Fred Feeney reporting on behalf of the Firemen who will  be supervising water sportE  i*aid a good program was lined  up but the committee in charge  was concerned with tide tomes  and it is possible the water '<  sports might have to be handled in the afternoon instead oi  the morning. This will have t��  be decided later.  During the evening's discussion it wrt's hoped that there  would be a volunteer available  with a long low-bed to use as a  platform on the Kinsmen Park  grounds to where the parade  .will wend its way so the Neptune Queen can be selected am,"  crowned.  The Firemen who have been  working   hard    on   behalf   of  their   Neptune    Queen    candidate turned in $60 from ticket  sales Tuesday night and asked  for   more  books.  Members   dl  the  committee   expressed   surprise at  the manner in whieb  the Neptune Queen-contest hai?  developed.   Ticket   sales  have  been high and the race in the  contest for queen  is expected  to be a decidedly keen event.  There will be another meet  ing of the celebration committee  next   Tuesday   night -at 8  o'clock in the Legion hall when  it is expected all organizations  involved in the celebration will  have their representatives present  so  ir-11   loose  ends can  be  tied up and the big event of-  ganized completely.  toria which will describe the  area and its past and anticipated growth.  Approval in principle, when  received, will allow St. Mary's  Hospital officials to retain an  architect and prepare plans  and estimates. At this) time a  committee will be formed to  organize a Hospital Improvement District which will make  possible the raising of funds  to carry out the construction  work on the new hospital facilities.  These studies are going to require a great deal of work on  the part of the study group as  well as a certain amount of  financial assistance. Welcome  donations have already been  received, $500 from the V.O.N,  surplus funds and $280.25 from.  Mrs1. A. Garry, this latter  amount being the proceeds  from the concessions operated  at Sechelt during the. May Day  celebrations.  Peninsula organizations who  wish   to   contribute   can   send  their   .-donations :, to    the    St.  Mary's Hospital study group at  St.   Mary's   Hospital.   In  addition,   organizations   are   urged  to familiarize V_*mselves with  and actively support the hospital improvement plans. Speakers will be provided if contact  is made to Mr. Harvey Hubbs,  Sechelt; Dr. H. Inglis, Gibsons;  Mr. A. Lloyd, Pender Harbour;  or Mr. E. Sherman, Port Mellon.  'NIGHTS OF THE ROUND TABLE  Rebekahs visit  Last week found m*r(ny Re-  bekahs attending Rebekah Assembly in Vancouver. Arbutus Rebekah Lodge No. 76 was  officially represented by Mrs;  Henrietta Chamberlin, district  deputy president during the  current assembly year.  Arbutus was also -greatly  honored by the appointment of  Mrs. Evelyn Begg, P.D.D.P.,  as assembly outside guardian.  Graduation at  Pender Harbor  Pupils and parents of the  Fender Harbour High School  at Kleindale gathered at the  school on Friday for the annual dinner and party for the  graduation class.  This year the class was small  er than usual, there being only  six to graduate. This did not  dampen the enthusiasm for the  party.  A feature of the evening was  the giving of a trophy donated  by Mr.   Gordon Lyons  to  the  school,   to  be  presented   each  year to   the pupil  having the  highest   standing.   In   the  absence  of Mr.  Lyons, Mr.  Jeffries,    school     inspector,    presented tlie trophy to Mr. Buckley,   principal   of   the   school.  Several former pupils gave an  impromptu concert during the  evening,   at   which   Mr.   Alan  Moberg   starred.  Dancing   followed.   This   year's  class was  evenly   divided,   Albert   Haddock, Frank Gough and Nelson  Miller   taking   the   university  program,   while Judith   Klein,  Susan Nield and Bernice Duncan the high school graduation  program.  Dance academy  auxiliary planned  Steps toward formng an auxiliary to the Academy of Dance  taught by Miss Anne Gordon  are being taken. A number of  needs have arisen, including  the helping of young dance student-', financially and otherwise.  To outline a program anci  to discover how many adults  would be willing to help in the  encouragement of ballet education in the community, an  informal meeting will be held  on Tuesday evening, June 23-.  at 8 p.m. in the J. Warn home  at Roberts Creek on the Lower  Road. All who are interested  are  cordially, invited.  Driver training  A summer course in driver  education for secondary school  teachers will be offered by  U.B.C. extension department,  June 29 to July 17. Supported  by a grant from the All Canada  Insurance Federation, its purpose is to equip teachers in the  organization of driver-training  programs, and to qualify them  as instructors in the classroom  and "behind-the-wheel."  For further information  write or telephone the Driver  Training Course, Extension Department, University of British Columbia, Vancouver 8.  There will be grants given  those travelling distances.

Crown and River  "Canada has a rich heritage in which nothing is more im-  ���grortant than the tradition of the crown and the influence of the  Great River. Both have moulded her history and her development. Both v/ith their magic touch have benefitted all Canada.  "The Crown is the foundation of her government and institutions: the basis of her unity within herself and with the  .the world. The River is the great artery of the nation, serving all  Canadians wherever they may' dwell or in whatever occupation  they may be engaged.  "Both are shared, the Crown with many nations, the River  with one. Yet each is distinctively and indivisibly, Canada's own.  Without either, the Canada of today could not, and would not  Fie."  The above paragraphs are taken from a beautiful book cf  about 20 pages published by the Canadian Pulp and Paper association, combining the Royal Visit and the opening of the St. Law-  ience seaway. The thought The Crown and the River, is given  Impressive association in the paragraphs above which are the  work of G. Herbert Lash, public relations top-notcher with the  wise counsel of George V. Ferguson, Montreal Star editor. Both  are to be congratulated. The paragraphs quoted above can be  aead and re-read and each time there will be a new beauty repealed. In fact the whole book., with its beautiful art work and  printing is a worthy addition to a library no matter how large  <ar small.  Run fast to stand still  International conferences in this enlightened a!ge coupled  with efforts of the reluctant dragon sheltered behind a self-  ���_mposed iron curtain have a similarity one has come to expect.  Here is a comment made in a monthly publication dated  June, 1951, on one such conference, which reads ais follows:  "At times the proceedings in Paris have had the appearance of a children's game. After each day's session the usual  "bulletin has been a purely negative report. Once we' were told  that while no progress had been made, the session had been one  of the most successful held ��� a pronouncement recalling the  wisdom of the Red Queen when she told Alice, (Alice in Wonder-  Ifend) that, 'Here, you see, it takes all the running you can do,  Ha keep in the same place."  Could anything more suitable be written about the con-  <2erence which has been underway in Geneva during June of 1959?  Perhaps it may be an achievement in international affairs these  days to be in exactly the same position after the conference as  you were in before the conference. It causes one to wonder whether the expense of running as hajrd asi you can to maintain the  oxact same position is worth the effort.  It is possible that from these conferences each side reveals  slues which might be developed at some later date but the machine set up to cause the distillation of such clues seems out of  alL proportion to the results achieved.  However, diplomats will be diplomats and conferences  will be of the type we have toda|-/ as long as the reluctant dragon remains reluctant. Secret diplomacy of the past was cast  aside in the belief the open forum would produce more lasting  atesults. Well the present negative results are lasting, no doubt  about that, but under the present division of world powers the  diplomatic stalemate is keeping a balance which future historians  might regard as an achievement of first rank. It is living with it  m. the present that is to us, the worst. So we shall apparently  }_ave to be satisfied with "running as hard as we can to keep in  the same place."  _*<���  $50 REWARD  for information leading to the arrest of person  or persons who stole gasoline and also did malicious damage to machinery belonging to Universal Timber Produces.

Teachers are proud of the students graduating from our  schools.  As graduates of an educational system which is one of  the finest, our boys and girls have received the grounding necessary to prepare them to meet the challenges  of further study or immediate employment.  Never has the need for teachers been greater. When  they choose their vocation, we hope many of this year's  graduates will decide to enter the teaching profession.  B.C. TEACHERS' FEDERATION  1815 West 7th, Vancouver 9, B.C.  B" Erio Sanderson  ; Mr. Sanderson, Vancouver  2i<_..-una.., is completing a two-  month, 12,000-mile voyage to  the Orient aboard the' Orient  & Pacific liners Himalaya and  Chusan. He writes about some  of the ports he has visited.  Passengers who made the inaugural journey in the Orient  and Pacific Lines' SS Himalaya from North America to  the Orient saw Mt. Fujiyama  clearly as the ship cruised into  Yokohama harbor and on arrival in the giant port began  a   "ound  of sight-seeing  trips.  Some Vancouverites remained in Japan for a five-day stay  then flew to Hong Kong to rejoin the ship. Others, staying  longer, will return in SS Chusan when she makes her maid-  ,en voyage into the north Pacific.  A train ride from Yokohania  is an experience in punctuality  while a taxi ride from Yokohama to Tokyo ��� a distance  of about 25 miles ��� is a nightmare.  The Japanese are exceptionally proud of their railway system. Engineers on the trains  would rather commit suicide  than be late. If the train from  Yokohama to Tokyo is;' 15 minutes late, passengers are refunded their fares and if the  train is 5 to 15 minutes late,  half the fare is refunded.  For some unknown reason  Japanese taxi drivers seldom  go slow. They keep their horns  blaring incessantly and none  likes another to pass him v^hile  racing along the highway,  which is a busy- thoroughfare  from sunrise to sunrise.  Several Cana'dian passengers  remained in Japan to attend  the Tokyo International Trade  Fair. Display area at the Har-  umi Fair Grounds in Tokyo totals more than 200,000 square  yards.  Kyoto, an ancient capital of  Japan is a city of intrigue, imposing shrines, temples and  palaces with elaborately designed gardens.  Kyoto is also a city of fes  tivals and colorful fetes. It was  the capital of Japan for more  than ten centuries, from 794  to 1868, when the seat of government was shifted to Tokyo,  now considered the world's  largest city*.  Thousands of Japanese school  children make annual visits to  this old capital which also is  of major interest to tourists. In  contraa. to Tokyo, which is like  any other large city in the  world, Kyoto has retained its  ancient color.  While many temples and  shrines hold the interest of all,  a memorial in Kyoto erected by  Japan in memory of all those  from all nations who lost their  lives in the last war on Japanese territory, attracts thousands of tourists.  One of the things that particularly attracts travellers are  the boulevards around the temples and shrines. It was pointed  out by. guides that these were  only completed after the war.  One guide ��� all are specially trained by the Japan Travel  Bureau ��� explained that Kyoto was one of the few major  Japanese cities to escape bombing during the war but as a  precaution against attack* the  government ordered all homes  surrounding the ancient temples and shrines to be demolished and fire lines established.  After the war, the fire lines  have become boulevards that  today serve as walks: for the  thousands of sight-seers.  At Kobe we were fortunate  to meet a former British Columbian, John Yoshikuni, with  the result there was no language problem. Yoshikuni was  born at Cumberland, B.C., and  received his* education there  and in Vancouver. He was in-  Robert D. Wright, N.D.  NATUROPATHIC      PHYSICIAN  Graduate of  Cal.

An employee of an American  stealmship company, Yoshikuni  is now stationed at Kobe. He  drove us over more than 150  miles of roads, most of which  are in dire need of repair, between Kobe and Kyoto and  showd us acres of vegetable  gardens and farms.  We arrived at the war memorial in a mountainside in Kyoto in time to watch a ceremony by, three Buddhist monks  in a magnificent shrine directly in front of the 80-foot high  ���statue.  Later we saw the famous  Higashi Hoganji Temple, a completely wooden structure built  of Keyaki timbers. Founded, in  1602, it was destroyed four  times by fire and the present  structures were completed in  1895.  After a Japanese-style meal,  using only chopsticks, we  went to the renowned Gion  Kohu Kabu-renjo Theatre near  the banks of the Kamogawa  river in the heart of the city,  to see the Miyako Odori ��� a  ance comprised of eight different scenes, by some of the most  beautiful and talented geisha  of the Kyoto area.  The thing that intrigued the  audience ��� the theatre was  packed ��� besides the strange  music and dances, was the manner in which the Japanese  change sets without dropping  the curtain.  All sets were hand-painted  and caught the eye of everyone for their design and coloring.

Born at Victoria, he was  raised within sound of the west  coast breakers, at his father's  logging camp on the Jordan  River, about 15 miles west of  Sooke.  He has tramped the wide waters of the seven seas as first  mate on an ocean-going freighter, taking in stride the hazards  of a sea-faring life.  In an unusual transition from  a life on the ocean wave, Bill  'siwallowed the anchor' when  he landed up at Fort St. John  in the Peace River country, to  take over as manager of the  Credit Union in that town. Later, he became accountant to  the Providence Hospital at Fort  St. John. During his stay in  the Peace, Bill was prominent  in Junior Chamber of Commerce affairs, and attended the  PARTINGTON  PETTIGREW  A wedding of interest to some  iof the older residents of the  ^Peninsula area took place on  Tues., June 9 at Westmere  Lodge, Jervis Inlet aboard the  Mission Ship, John Antle, Canon  Greene officiating in the vows  of Geoffrey Walter Partington,  formerly of Blind Bay and Edith  Jacquely Pettigrew, formerly of  Nelson Island.  The bride wore a ballerina  length gown of sheer white nylon over satin. Mrs. Clarence  Cook in daffodil yellow attended her. Both had caps of flowers  with the brides featuring a spray  of tiny Bermuda Shells worn by  her great grandmother at her  wedding. Mr. Robin Partington  ���was best man.  Following the ceremony tea  was served at the Lodge with  cutting of the wedding cake and  a toast to the bridal couple.

Now he finds himself again  within spitting distance of sait  water; this time as administrator of St. Mary's Hospital, Pender Harbour.  Not altogether an uneventful  life for a young fellow of 33.  Bill, who is married, with one  youngster, has now had a  chance to take stock of things.  He likes living in the Harbour; likes his job, and likes  the people. He finds the hospital staff thoroughly efficient;  thinks the two doctors are  grand guys (and who doesn't),  and speaks highly of the friendly co-operation of the Hospital  Board.  Concerning his own affairs,  I found him slightly inclined  to understatement. I asked him  if his sea-going career had produced anything in the way of  excitement  or  adventure.  "No," said Bill, thoughtfully. "I don't think so."  Later, it transpired that he'd  been in two ship collisions, and  had survived a fire at sea. On  another occasion, in the icy  wastes of the North Atlantic,  his ship was forced to lie hove-  to, for four days and nights,  whilst riding out a winter gale.  Lifeboats were stove in; doors  ripped from their fastenings  and top-hamper carried away.  Before the gale finally subsid-  Coast News.

In the  heavy seas, the vessel pitched  and rolled drunkenly beneath  the additional burden of 1500  tons of ice.  Bill's idea of an uneventful  career must be a lot different  to mine.

Miss Celina Wise of Vancouver ispent the weekend visiting  Mr. and Mrs. Dick Wise of Mid-  dlepoint.  Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Hannon  of Seattle are spending a few  days cruising   on   their yacht.  Mr. and Mrs. William Brown  of Garden Bay were in Vancouver for a few days during  the week.  Mrs. B. Mettam  Mrs. Blanche Mettam, 85,  who had lived in Gibsons for  the pasit 14 years, died June 5  iii St. Mary's Hospital. The  funeral service took place Tuesday June 9 at 1:30 p.m. in Gibson Memorial United Church  with Rev. Edward Kemp officiating. Burial was made in  Seaview cemetery;. Graham  Funeral Home was in charge.  Mrs. Mettam, born in England, lived in Saskatchewan  2*_.any years before moving to  Vancouver. Her husband, a retired stevedore, died some 12  ;years ago. Mrs. Mettam was  quite a horticulturist and had  one of the finest gardens in the  area at one time. She was quite  an active woman throughout  all her years and while she did  not belong to any organizations  she moved around considerably  Mrs. Mettam had only recently acquired a house which was  being prepared for her so she  sould move in.

Misses' size       Women's size       Development of a new form  of consumer-finance loans by  the Bank of Montreal, providing facilities for Canadians to  consolidate all of their credit-  buying under a single life-insured loan, with a single monthly payment, is announced by  the bank's president, G. Arnold Hart.  The system would be known  as the "Bank o fMontreal Family Finance Plan" and is now  in operation at all of the bank's  781 Canadian offices.  Personal loans under the  new arrangements will be  made for practically any purpose in amounts up to $3,500  while repayments will be scheduled over periods up to three  years, where required. Such  loans will be automatically lite  insured.  Many of the loans will be  made on an unsecured basis,  although chattel-mortgage and  other types of security may be  tajken here  such collateral   is  ncr-*-.--.-. The main consideration in making loans will be  the customer's ability to repay,  without hardship, from regular income.  Interest will be six percent  a year on the actual outstanding balance, plus a charge to  cover the cost of processing and  service. The overall cost to the  customer of a loan under the  new plan is lower than generally prevails for consumer-financing in Canada and is particularly attractive for a life-insured loan.  The B of M plan includes a  ;-.pecial feature which Mr. Hart  referred to as "ever-ready credit." Under this provision, the  customer may arrange for a  standby personal credit, based  on his income and commitments  and available ior his use at any  time. He is thus free to make  purchases at will and issue  cheques on the spot up to the  limit of his prearranged credit  "The  bank's  new plan will  by no means be restricted to  loans, for the purchase of items  normally bought on instalments, but will also be readily  available for many other purposes such as medical and dental bills, educa&on expenses*  and vacation costs," Mr. Hart  said. "Neither," he added, "will  the plan be confined to purely  family purchases, but will be  equally at the disposal of the  single person."  Your representatives, Mr. and Mrs. T. Sinclair,  now reside permanently at Wilson Creek.  The phone after 6 p.m. as Sechelt 22��K  Canada's first electric railway  was built in Toronto in 1883.

Deeper understanding of  spiritual resources is vitally  needed to meet the sharp challenge of our times. This was a  major theme of the annual  meeting of The Mother Church,  The First Church of Christ,  Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts, attended by about 7,500  Christian Scientists from many  parts of the world.  Spiritual, not material, power holds a practical answer to  the many social, political and  international problems perplexing humanity, the gathering was told.  A special message from the '  Christian Science board of directors to the members said  that today's growing interest  in spiritual values presents a  special challenge ��� the challenge to represent these great  values -till more fully to mankind through our demonstration of them.  Named president of The Mother Church for the coming  year was Kathryn F. Cook of  Boston, Mass. A public practitioner of Christian Science  healing for more than 20 years,  Mrs. Cook succeeds Leonard T.  Carney, retiring president, who  is- alio a member of the board  of trustees of The Christian  Science Publishing society.  Mr. Carney pointed to the  truly Christian standard of  thought and action as an unfailing guide in a changing world.  This standard, he said, holds  that spiritual power is supreme  over all. It is held aloft, he declared, "through the works of  healing and redmeption which  take place over the world day  by day. It is raised whenever  lofty prayer lifts thought' to  God as, the only directing and  saving power."  New opportunities for proving the practical value of spiritual resources were broup1'1*  cut by key officials in their reports on the progress of the  vor-ldwide activities of the  Ghirstian Science Church  y\c: I  9157  SIZES  12-20  Fashion's favorite shirtdress  with a new flair ��� a graceful  8-gore skirt that does the most  flattering things for your figure.

Martin,  who was born in Nova Scotia  in 1882, was educated at the  University of New Brunswick  and in 1904 won the first  Rhodes scholarship awarded in  America.

At the latter institution he was  professor and head of the department of history until retirement in 1952.  What    Provincial    Legislature  lacked an opposition?  In the summer of 1935 Walter Maxfield Lea and his Liberal followers were elected to  power in Prince Edward Island  with an unprecedented majority, not one opposition candidate having been elected. Unfortunately Mr, Lea died the  following January. He had been  premier of the province in  1930-31 and was leader of the  Liberd! opposition from 1931  to 1935. A breeder of Holstein  cattle and'Percheron horses, he  spent all his life on the farm  and was known as the Farmer  Premier.

The emotions of being a father stay constant  through the ages. The hopes and fears . . . the  wishes and apprehensions. The humbling realization that no other task in all the world  carries with it so grave a responsibility, so  rewarding a victory as that of being a father.  For where else does a boy look ... for light  which will lead to sure places for young feet  to stand ... for guidance through the great  continent of the mind ... for those words and  teachings that will open wisdom's way... for a  held-out hand, a haven in every sudden storm?  Where else but to a father, who knows that  every son is a miracle, like daily light.  More than anything else Fatherhood is guidance and wisdom ��� the wisdom of setting a  good example in thought, in word, in deed.
