RCMP now  HQ  in new  RCMP headquarters in Gibsons is now established in the  new $35,000 building on  School Read, close by the Elementary School and the former headquarters on Seaview  Road has been closed.  The new quarters offers  greater facilities for the RCMP  with living quarters for both  men on the strength of the  local force. There is no change  in the telephone number which  is Gibsons 55.  Sechelt should be obtaining  a new RCMP headquarters  soon on the same scale as the  one in Gibsons. Property has  been purchased but whether  it will be erected this summer  (has not  yet been announced.  Did you help?  Those people who were kind  enough to place their sweaters an(i coats around Brenda  Edlund, aged 10, who was fatally injured Feb. 27 on Sechelt Highway in vicinity of  the twin creeks between Sol-  nik's Service Station and the  Masonic Hall are requested to  pick up their clothing at the  RCMP headquarters in Gibsons. The clothing is at the  new headquarters on School  Road behind the Elementary  School.  BAPTIST  SERVICE  Bethel Baptist Church of  Sechelt will hold an evening  service in i Gibsons at the home  of Mr. and Mrs. R. Roth of  Kenmore on Marine Drive, opposite the Bal Block.

Titcomb, member of  the Canadian Band Masters  Association who visited the  band" recently and heard: it  play "described it as a 100 percent Well-balanced organization? The?,band started to play  somewhere ' about Oct. 22 and  has put iri so far 98 hours of  practice* The- first official  concert will likely take place  in May.  A letter from Mr. Titcombe  oh the band says:  I- was privileged to attend  the recent first public appearance of the newly formed  Elphinstone School Band at  Gibsons,    under   the   capable*  leadership of Mr. George Moss,  "the deportment of the band  ���>vas above reproach-. One of  ���the best behaved. :gi:oups 'of  ^oung pebple I' have- met* in  many a- day.  y Musically, this? fine group  did a splendid job with the  numbers which we all enjoyed, paying particular attention  to the Bandmaster's baton.  This is a well balanced little  band and has great future  ahead of them. I am looking  forward to hearing them again  at the big band festival at Abbotsford on May 28. I sincerely hope that the powers that  be get behind this effort and  make sure this.band is there.  Mr. George Moss has been  a bandsman and a bandmaster  for a great number of years,  and he is a great credit to the  community as a whole for his  untiring efforts with these  fine band members.  Your band director asks  very little in return for conscientious service. A word of  apreciation, a good turnout at  events where his band performs, wholehearted, response  to his requests and recommendations. These mean a great  deal to him. Your school, your  community and your children  all benefit when you co-oper  ate. And again I thank you fo*f  the kind invitation to be with  you ori that' auspicious occasion, and I am looking forward  .to the next public concert from  this very fine Elphinstone Jr.  High School- Band.  ���Reg  W.

However after considerable effort  the. party arrived. A phone  call to Madeira Park informed the meeting of the difficulties facing the panel but  the audience hung on until its  arrival..  The subject under panel discussion as part of Education  "Week proceedings is How Can  Canadian Education Hold Its  Own in Competition with the  Modern World? This subject  has been tackled in two  schools and will be examined  in Sechelt Elementary School  on Thurs., March 17. This discussion is sponsored by the  PTA groups in the various  areas.

Kennett  Saturday night, Feb. 19, the peninsula was subjected to the  most violent winds it will ever experience for a good many  years. For a few hours, screaming West to Northwest gales, often  reaching.70 to 80 m.p.h. in gusts, snapped large trees like match  sticks*"causing nothing but trouble for power and telephone line  crews.:.

A big turnout is expected. During his nearly 50  years of service to the Coastal  community, the Canon has  made a host of friends.  Canada lays claim to more  than one-half of the world's fresh  water.  NEED MEN'S CLOTHES  Central City Mission is badly in need of used clothing *or  men and requests that donations be left at Standard Moors in Sechelt. With the coming of spring months jobs open  up and it is necessary proper  clothes be available for men  who pass through the mission  on their move to a better way  of life. Some days, according  to reports from the mission,  there are at least 60 demands  for clothing for men.  157 babies in 1959  A pre-natal service for expectant mothers may be set  up this spring for the Sunshine Coast area, Miss Norma  Fieldhouse, provincial health  nurse informed Gibsons and  Area Ratepayers' association  meeting Monday night in Gibsons United Church  Hall.  Miss Fieldhouse dis;ussed  the operation of the provincial  health service in a general way  with specific references covering this area.  She told her audience there  were some 157 babies born in  this health district from Port  Mellon to Jervis Inlet including adjacent islands. Of this  number 141 were born in tlie  area serviced by the highway  from Port Mellon to Jervis Inlet.  Miss Fieldhouse in outlining the administrative side of  the service said that it was a  service established to prevent  disease and not to cure. Cost  of the service through taxation  ranged at about 30 cents per  head which along with an annual   grant   from  the  depart-  Strontium 90  to be discussed  Mrs. J. W. Wilson of the  Women's Committee on Radiation Hazards will be the speaker Monday, March 14 at 8  p.m. in the School Hall, Gibsons, on the subject of the  dangers of atomic fallout.  The committee which Mrs.  Wilson represents is a non-  political organization. Mrs:  Wilson will discuss strontium  90 and the situation in British  Columbia as well as the nuclear morality and what can  be done to protect future generations.  There will be a question period and while Mrs. Wilson is  not a scientist every effort  will be made to have answers  available or get them through  university channels.  ment of public health maintained a service for the area.  There are two nurses and  one sanitarian associated in  the work of this area. As regards the nurses the area is  divided into two, Port Mellon  to near Wilson Creek for one  and Wilson Creek to Jervis  Inlet for the other nurse with  the sanitarian covering the en-  ire area and other sections of  Howe Sound.  Miss Fieldhouse reported the  nurses had visited 141 mothers  with new babies, took part in  some 13 child health centres  and spent about one-third of  their time in the examination  of school  children.  Teacher - nurse    conferences  were held from time to time  to  discuss   problems   concerning school children and if necessary the taking of the problem   into    the    child's   home  where   parents   are  consulted,  through a child guidance clinic in association with parents.  The    nurses    work    closely  with   the  Kinsmen   club   and  their projects to assist children  and  with  the  social   welfare  representatives.  There  is also  a  follow-up  system involving  X-rays of children. Communicable disease records are kept  as regards child afflictions.  There are also vaccinations,  educational services including  talks and the passing out of  printed information as part of  their work.  The sanitarian covers the  checking of milk supplies, restaurants, barbershops and hair-  dreasing establishments, water supply and wells, also garbage and sewage control.

"Education Shapes Canada's Future."  This slogan for Education Week, which is being observed  throughout our nation March 6-12, is one of the great challenges?  of our day. It is a challenge within our own borders, but an even  greater challenge.in relation,jto Canada's part in world affairs.  In 1950' only?7.8 percent of tlie college-age population in  Canadaj^asin ^  likely to go to 15.1 percent in 1970.  Despite the growth in demand the increase in expenditure  for education in Canada was completely out of proportion to  two other fields; money spent on cars, and money spent on tobacco and alcoholic beverages.  In 1958 Canadians spent $2,074,000,000 n cars, $200,000,000  more than in 1957. They spent $1,424,000,000 on tobacco and  beverages, $102,000,000 more than in 1957.  They spent $1,070,000,000 on education, an increase of  $50,000,000 over 1957. This gain appears somewhat restricted in  relation to the other two figures.  Recent press reports from the B. C. Legislature stated the  cost of public education in B C. in the fiscal year 1958-59 was  $101,000,000. This figure is growing, and will continue to grow  ���with our province.  Is it enough to meet the challenge of the day?  In terms of his tax bill the majority of taxpayers would have  no hesitation in answering that the load is already too heavy.  But in terms of the challenge to us as local citizens, as British Columbians and as Canadians, it isn't nearly enough.  Education is not this year's tax bill.... it is the whole future of our nation.  An opportunity to help  This is Red Cross month and every year this newspaper  draws attention to this commemoration. It is an opportunity to  salute the many people in this community who serve as willing  volunteers and carry on traditional Red Cross work.  Every day we see these citizens carrying on their duties. In  our schools the Junior Red Cross is a most important project and  through it our children; are 'developing an interest in the other  youth, their community anH"'generally learning to be good citizens of the future.  At some time this month, a volunteer Red Cross canvasser  will knock on your door. They are doing a very essential work  because money is needed to back up the work of the Red Cross  volunteer. That money must come from every one of us. Dollars  arid volunteers are needed to carry on the essential services and  programs of the Red Cross. This year the need is greater and  your generosity will keep the Red Cross on the job!  Support for Mr. Winch  If Harold Winch M.P. desires specific evidence to back his  assertion government, management and labor should show a  greater realization of world economics as they affect Canada,  two examples have come to light.  One is from the Fisheries Association of B. C. on the reasons why Peru has cut the price of herring meal from $2.30 per  unit to $1.48 and herring oil from nine cents a pound to six-and-  a-half cents and swamp the world market, taking over from other  nations.  The other is in a speech by George K. Ridley, British estate  trustee in Vancouver. He said he had been asked if there was  any likelihood of British motor manufacturers establishing a  plant in British Columbia and replied cars can be manufactured  in Britain and distributed on the North American continent at a  price much below that which would apply if manufactured on  this continent.  Whether one likes or dislikes the Peruvian fishermen or  trustees of British estates has absolutely nothing to do with the  situation. The facts are that someone else is turning out a product  cheaper than it can be produced in North America. There is no  law against such action. Neither is there any legislative law  against pricing oneself out of a market. But it is a foolish procedure and allows the law of diminishing returns to take over.  No one in North America is likely to sit by quietly while this  happens on a wide enough scale to become a menacing problem.  It may not be a menace at present ��� but it is on its way.  'v;  Girts, the best way I know to keep your  family on the road to success. Is through a  good healthy savings account When you've  got money in the bank you can pay cash for  the things you want; and take advantage of  opportunity. Know where my husband and  I saved the money to buy this new car?  y  /  (By A. J. C.)  The first officer of a  ship  and a young junior were loafing on the poop and watching  one of the spectacular sunsets  that are common between the  Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn as it flared and  flamed  in a riot of colors from horizon   to   horizon.  Splendid   as  they are they do not  satisfy  a northern mind ��� meaning  my   own ���  since   they  fade  away fast  and lack  the  soft  blending of colors and the lingering pensive quality of our  own evening skies. But I was  not surprised to hear the mate  murmur 'The Heavens declare  the glory of the Lord."  *    *    *#  It was at that moment that  a   steamship   came    in   sight  heading inward to the port at  full  speed.   As   she  enlarged  to   our  view the  experienced  mate  said  "Fast   freight  and  passengers ��� the ship of the  future,   lad."   Had   it been  a  sailing vessel we  might have  known her nationality by "the  cut of her jib"  as the saying  was,   and   even  in   this   case  neither of us needed the flag  of Norway that broke out at  her jackstaff as she neared the  port. He knew her country by  the sheer and the poise of her  and her   triijh,   seaworthy  ap-v  pearance; the sons of the vikings could  not build an ugly  or unhandy ship if they tried.  A  mile   off the wharf  the  vessel  slowed   to   a  stop but  without  dropping    anchor.   A  water-police boat slid out towards her pulled by four oarsmen and carrying Doctor and  Customs.  ��T^ ��*. ����.  ��P n�� �����������  "A packet," exclaimed the  mate, meaning a ship that  made a regular call. "No doubt  her master has pilot's licence;  for the port."  The officials were not  aboard many minutes before  the ship again got under way  and moved in to berth astern  of us, with the clattering of  winches beginning at once.  The mate fell into a thought-,  ful mood. He knew that the,  youngster with him had a  large bump of curiosity( so  that when he was ashore on  leave in a foreign port he was  more likely to be found in  some museum, library, botanical garden cr wherever he  could pick up information on  a country new to him than in  places where entertainment of  a different kind was offered  to visiting seamen. I recall  with pleasure the unfailing  courtesy shown me by every  Latin American I ever met,  from dock workers to officials.  They were pleased by the interest shown and by one's attempts to enlarge a scanty vocabulary of musical Spanish  words ��� for which a pretty  senorita is undoubtedly the  best teacher.  x    :p    *  The mate aroused with a  question. "Tell me, how does  the population of Norway compare with-that.of this republic?"  That was easy to answer, I  knew the one and had recent-  Get Your  Magnamap!  it lights  the way  See it at the  ly looked up the other and I  replied that, apart from the  natives ��� los Indios ��� who  were still living their own life  at the time, the numbers were  about equal. "And how would  you compare the natural resources of the two countries?"  That was truly a different  matter. I knew a little of Norway and had learnt much more  from Norse shipmates on long  sailing voyages and it could  hardly be more different from  the vast partly explored republic in whose chief port we  were lying and whose great  natural wealth wag already beginning to be knwon. So I replied that in view of the great  difference and without wishing to disparage the hardy northern country I would feel inclined to say that the one had  little and the other everything. ':-������..������   ,:*  The mate thought it was  well put ��� "And look you, lad,  if the whole lot of them down  here got together they could'  na build one ship like yon."  Well, one does not argue  with one's chief ��� who was  a right seaman to the heart-  yarn of him ��� but I thbiight  he' was using his own yardstick on people who might  have qualities that it could  ; not measure.  ;<;? "el*'*-. .-*���;.-c*��f.Tl* y^M*---*  ' " His following statement  could be endorsed at least.  "The resources of a country  are important, but it's the folk  who count the most."  We went below with that,  mosquitoes were coming out  of the great seashore swamps  that are banana plantations  today.  s��N <ftC b$Mki&-��&H:Ati$0%  A  Where was Millionaires' Row  In Haileybury, Ont., during the  early years of the present century. When the silver rush reached its peak in the Cobalt area  about 1905, many of the "silver  kings" built homes in Haileybury,  establishing what came to be  known as Millionaires' Row along  the shores of Lake Timiskaming.  iVhe town of Haileybury, which  U the seat of Timiskaming District, lies just five miles northeast of Colbalt and five miles  south of New Liskeard. After the  silver strike, the settlement  mushroomed into a bustling centre of 3,500 population and soon  it was known as "the little Bay  mands a 90-mile vista of the  Strait of Georgia. The plateau  was so named because of an Indian legend that the women and  children of a Comox band, placed, here for security when an attack by Cowichan Indians was  expected, disappeared without  trace ��� thus causing Indians to  avoid the area.

By JOHN SURTEES  Oh Jan. 15 and 16, Marylne  White and I represented Pender Harbour High School at  the second Future Teachers'  Conference at the University  of British Columbia.  Arriving around 11 a.m. Friday, Jan. 15, we were taken to  the University Campus and  taken on a personal tour of  the buildings and grounds. After the tour we went to the  men's commons and had lunch.  About 1:30 we were given a  special lecture by Mr. W H.  Auld, on "What we get out of  going to University." . We  were given lectures that afternoon on "Your life on the  campus next year," and "How  to have more effective Future  Teachers' Clubs." The day ended with our seeing the Harlem  Globetrotters perform in the  War Memorial Gymnasium.

Provincial Legislature in session.  The Elphinstone High School  students were Sheila Smith of  Gibsons and William Hubbs of  Selma Park. The Pender Harbour student was Gary Spicer  of Madeira Park.  These students with 31 other  B.C. girls and boys, were visiting the capital city through  the "Education in Democracy" program. Now in its sixth  year, this program is sponsored by. school boards, the  Speaker of the House, radio  station CKNW and the B. C.  Electric.  Students lunched with the  Speaker, attended two sessions  of the Provincial Legislature,  visited the Provinical Library  and Archives, the Provncial  Museum and historical Helm-  cken House. They also saw  Canadian Services College at  Royal Roads.  Since "Education in Democracy" trips were started in  1955, 1398 students have visited the capital city through  the program. Each student receives a gold pin representing  the B. C. mace as a memento  of the  visit.  bbs "nsKHeer hbe) mam  FOR YOUR  RUBBER  dress by; Dean Scarfe, followed by an interesting discussion period.

We  arrived back at the University  around 6 p.m. where we attended the banquet and dance  held in the Future Teachers  honor. After the. dance we  went tc our billets' houses.  This conference proved very  intereting to both of us. We  would like to extend our deep  appreciation to the Sechelt  School board, who financed  this trip and we feel that this  has helped us and others to  decide on our futures.

If the Canadiens and Leafs  ere in separate semi-final series, these games will be televised on an alternating basis,  although priority will be given to deciding games, regardless of which teams participate.  In the Stanley Cup playoffs,  the team finishing in first  place meets the third-place  club in a best-of-seven semifinal series.

Here are a few suggestions for proper spacing;  Tail growing evergreens  should not be planted too close  to the house. It is better to use  them for specimen plantings.  This means they should be properly placed���and spaced���in an  open lawn.  Pines and spruces require a  great deal of room. If crowded,  they soon lose their beauty.  Most pines and spruces reach a  heivM of from 40 to 60 feet at  n;;*lurity.  One of the boldest and handsomest of the species is the Red  Pine (Pinus resinoas), with its  long, dark green needles. Even  more decorative In a picturesque sense is the Austrian Pin*  (Pinus nigra) shown in the accompanying Garden-Graph. It  is also interesting in bloom in  the spring and again in the fall,  when it bears cones, as shown In  tiie Garden-Graph.  Rugged and irregular in outline, the Scotch Pine (Pinus syl-  vestris) is fast-growing and  makes a splendid  wind-break.  The Norway Spruce (Picea  excelsa) is probably the most  widely planted evergreen. Relatively quick-growing, it is excellent for mass grouping in  full sun.  Pine trees can be grown  where the soil is too light, sandy  and dry for firs, spruces and  hemlocks. 6   Coast News, March 10, 1960  ell done, Guides  In 1909 a group of determined  girls almost broke up a Boy  Scout Rally in London's Crystal  Palace by appearing in strange  adaptions of their brothers'  Scout uniforms and insisting on  being allowed to join the game  of Scouting.  Lord (then Sir) Robert Baden-  Powell .being an understanding  man, worked out a plan for a  similar organization, suitably  adapted for girls, and thus the  Girl.

Jubilee -���  50 years of' training young Canadian girls for healthy, happy  and useful citizenship.  What do Guides and Brownies  do besides lining official routes,  looking trim and neat in their  blue or brown uniforms? When a  girl joins, she promises "to do  her best." She learns to follow  the four Signposts of Girl Guiding: Intelligence, Handicraft,  Health and Service, for all-round  development of* her personality.  She learns to follow the wiishes  of the majority, to do her shara  of the work, to accept guidance  from her leaders.

From  the moment she becomes a member, she learns the importance  of good health, by following accepted health rules and studying  nutrition and child care.  She may win proficiency  badges by developing hobbie.?,  interests which may lead to a  chosen career. She learns to appreciate the simple things of  life, aquires a love*of nature, and  undergoes an all-round spiritual  development impossible to attain  among the artificial amusements  of today. Through contacts with  other girls of her own age from  other parts of Canada and the  world, she makes new friends  and learns tolerance and understanding of other cultures.  This ��� spring, from . coast. to  coast, a :. "River of Gold" will  bloom in the form of thousands  of golden tulips, planted by  Guides and Brownies as a Jubilee "Thank You" gesture to their  communities. " Special Jubilea  Camps are being planned during  the summer each attended by  girls- from every province in Canada. Every Brownie Pack arid  Guide and Ranger Company will  observe birthay celebrations, wiih  birthday cakes and pageantry.  Canadian girls ��� and the:r  parents ��� are indeed fortunate  to have shared Guiding during  the past 50 years with other g:rls  around the world, now numbering four-and-a-half millions. As  yet another generation of 8-year-  olds solemnly promise "to do mv  best." we are proud to wish Girl  Guiding in Canada a "Happy  Birthday,' to wish them many,  many more, and to say, as their  late, great Founder and Chief  would have said, "Well done.  Guides!"  365 day job  From colony to nation, Canada has been a great producer  and exporter of wood and  wood products. The forest is a  natural renewable resource  which pours out bounty to all  Canadians at the rate of more  than a quarter of a milion dollars an hour, day and night,  for 365 days of the year.  Value of the country's forest  exports is  55 percent  greater  that   that - of   all  agricultural  products. They produce almost  three  times   as  many   export  dollars as iron and steel  and  all   their   allied   products,   including   automobiles,   locomotives and farm  machinery.  Directly   and   indirectly   Canada's   forests   generate   about  one-third of the income of all  Canadians. They support a $1.4  billion pulp  and paper industry and a $2.8 lumber and allied industries.  ( UB THiMKS JTS Tt4E PEUVERY-H  "QM4M FROM THE WTCHEZ SAO>!  Tony Gargrave, M.L.A.  Inthfe   ��-  Arthur Turner, the member  for Vancouver 'East, hak "presented to the. legislature "a bill  on -fair accommodation? Thi��  Bill would make' it unlawful  for a hotel, restaurant or theatre to di^dfiminate' 'against  members of tlie public because  of their race or nationality.  Two provinces in Canada already have a similar bill... ori  the statute books; they, ar��  Ontario and Saskatchewan.  I would .like to quote to you  Section 2 of. the bill:  "Every person shali enjoy  the right to obtain the accommodation or facilities of any  hotel, motel, auto court, restaurant, theatre or other place  to which the public is customarily admitted, fogardless of  the race, creed, color, nationality, ancestry or. place of origin of such person."  er in which he 'could not turn  anyone away who came to his  inn asking for refreshments  cr lodging.  The bill contains provisions  that no person shall publish  or display any notice indicating discriminaton against any  person because of race. The  bill also provides that every  person who deprives any other  person of the enjoyment of any  right under the Act shall be  liable to damages to any one  injured thereby. This act in  many ways re-establishes as  law the obligations, of the old-  fashioned innkeeper. Many of  you will know of the legal tradition concerning the innkeep-  I discovered recently, to my  amazement, that there is? a hotel in the Mackenzie riding  that refuses to give service.to  native Indians. Frankly, I  thought we had stamped out  this sort of discrimination  years ago. We in British Columbia cannot point our fingers  at discrimination in South Africa, Algeria or in the Southern United States unless our  own house is in- order. We cannot be smug if native Indians  are refused service in a hotel  or visiting cultured negrotes  are refused accommodation in  COUNTER  SALES BOOKS  available  at  Coast News  Phone GIBSONS 45Q  hotels or restaurants.  I think that the Fair Accommodation Practices Act is well  worth supporting in. British  Columbia. It is also up to  boards of trade, trade unions,  and fraternal organiztions to  take a stand right in".the community concerning "racial discrimination.  British Columba is a trading province; we sell our products all over the world, and  it ill behoves a nation living  on the rim of the Pacific Ocean  trading with other countries  of the world, to practice discrimination based merely on  race or color.

If this process of critical  examination were not going  on constantly education would  run the grave risk of standing  still, cf becoming retrograde  and so declining. However,  one principle seems to emerge  clearly: the first responsibility of a nation is to guarantee  for each citizen the possibility  of attaining hig maximum potentiality as a man. This means  in other words, that each citizen should have the opportunity of educating himself to the  highest level commensurate  with his intelligence, aptitudes  and natural endowment.  A society is as good as the  quality of the collective mental energies of the men  and  women who compose that society; and a nation is successful  and progressive 4p-; the; extent  'Vth&tilr possesses humanjresour-  ces which permit it ty carry  out the  complex and   varied  tasks of modern society-. The*  physical  world ��� sibWly yields  its s^rets to tlie physicist and  the  chemist;  disease  declines  through the patient investigations of medical doctors; our  beliefs,   customs   and.   mores  grow and evolve through the  researches of our social scientists,    lawyers,    psychologists  and humanists. But all these  fields of human endeavour require an ever growing number  of highly trained persons who  must spend many years at universities preparing themselves.  The growth of human knowledge over  the  past  four  or  five decades has been outstanding  and  unparalleled in   history. And yet,  vast fields of  human  endeavour   now   only  imagined by small groups of  specialists will open up  within our own lifetime, and they  in turn will make their  own  demands  on  our   reserves   of  trained     men     and    women;  There is then a basic and ever  growing demand by society for  the  products of our universities which we cannot avoid if  we  are  to continue living  at  our present level  arid  in the  kind of world we have fashioned  for  ourselves.  We can and must make the  best possible use of our human resources. The material  wealth of this land, together  with enlightened legislation,  can assure for every Canadiany  that level of training which  will best suit him for an appropriate place in society and  which will at the same time  permit him to attain the richest and  fullest expression   of  Printed Pattern  9347  SIZES 36-30  That hard-to-find casual ��� so  slimming so smartly detailed  with stitched tucks.

Each individual has certain mental and  emotional needs which require  satisfaction if he is to be a happy, successful and stable hu  man being.  Man's creative genius has  put at our disposal large numbers of ingenious machines  which have set us free from  much of the hard physical toil,  and for the first time in history we can, if we will, devote  a large part of our time to cultivating the mind. The new  leisure should permit every  citizen to seek out new pleasures and satisfactions of the  mind, to discover his own essence and dignity as a man,  and finally to attain to levels  never   dreamed  possible.  For those who make the  choice, our universities can offer an atmosphere where for  four or more years the student  may devote himself mainly to  extending and expanding his  knowledge of the physical and  mental world. Through association with highly trained and  dedicated teachers, he can  stretch his imagination, put his  ideas to the test, and grow both  intellectually and morally.  This is a privileged experience, the value of which can  be known only to those who  have enjoyed it. It quickens  one's taste for living, enriches  every relationship, deepens  every sensitivity, and throughout life offers a source of  pleasure and satisfaction to  which one can return again  and again.

Like other large concerns?  they had left a   black   list;   oil;  which were recorded the names  of men who had fallen down oh?  their jobs in one way or another.?  They   decided   to   reverse   this?  policy and to keep a record of  men    who    did    commendable,  things. Whenever they heard of  an   employee .. doing   something  worthwhile they made �� note of  it   and   so  began their   "White  List." Men were just as anxious  to get their names on that list as  they   had   been . to   avoid   the  other.  A little appreciation goes a  long way and is a morale-builder.  The man' or woman hasn't been  born Who doesn't enjoy a Rat on  the hack ;f6r something well done  and we* suspect that the-railroad's  new policy has paid in terms of  efficiency. -v.'.-*  There is'no way. iii'" which a  man  reveals  his  true"character  than in his estimate of others,  ���mere are people w'tto have t.us  God-given quality of seeing wnat  is good in otners and telling  them^about. It was said of the  poet Coleridge that "He saw God  in everything;" that is true of  many people.  When Thomas Arnold was  made headmaster of j^nglanu o  famous school at Rugby, objection was made to his appointment because he overestimated  youngsters. One ��� man even said  in the British House of Commons:  "The trouble with Arnold is that  all his geese are swans. He thinks  every boy is wonderful."  I of ter. hear people complain  about a youngster being, bumptious. I seldom agree. For every  conceited one. there are a dozen  who. lack;self-assurance. If there  is conceit,- experience will take it  out of them.  Too many peopje have black  lists;.they have more antipathies  than preferences. ,.It. is. a.great  mistake for. all concerned.
