It  was ;their hope, with the aidE  of' the Village Commission,,  that the matter* could reach at  completion in a short space of  time, .Mr. Mainil .said.

An extra dollar or two donated might change  that whole situation.  St. Mary's Hospital cannot pull the heart-throbs  like big hospitals in larger cities.with shots of wide-eyed  lielpless looking children appealing for your financial aid  to help them grow big and sturdy. Jt might not be able to;  .-do that but it can point to a record of grit and courage���  the kind of grit and courage that seldom reaches the .columns of the daily press.  Long hours are put in and sometimes day turns to  night and back to day again without there being any let-up] -  ..in the battle to get a serious patient into a condition that  he or she can be moved to a larger institution.     None of  ��� this appears in the cold record of the financial pperations  of the hospital. Behind these dollars representing income  and expenditure lies much that is not written. It is expres-  . sed only in the fact that this or that person is today alive  and walking about���a silent tribute of what has been done  ���with so little available with which to do it.  The sum of $20,000 does not appear to be very large  in view of the heavy expense hospitals must undergo in;  order to be able to be called a hospital. There are in the  area concerned in this drive for St. Mary's Hospital, some  ��10,000 to 12,000 persons. Breaking this down to families,,  it could mean there are at least 4,000 families involved.  This would mean if each family gave $5 the $20,000 would  Ihe available. But some families cannot afford.$5. Many  will donate,more than $5.'

We  see in print from time to time  .mostly in the agricultural  journals of the east andyprairie descriptions of the ethereal joys of gathering the various wild berries that are native to those parts.        ;...������  .-  I should like to    enter    the  lists or. behalf of our trailing  vine blackberry. I believe this"  plant is native to this country.  and is    ho    relation    to   ,th;is  .wretched    bush    hybrid    that  . plagues the    countryside  : and  whose only claim to fame '-.is  ,.elly making and hooch.

If a patch can be foundrin  ��� these circumstances itV is ^^as-  tcundihg what a good .day's  picking will amount to.v :, The  first settlers here found *;.:jhe  bracken shoulder high and? in  season. the. berries were of-  times gathered for the market  where a 10 quart pail would  bring a dollar.  A reminiscence of berry  picking 40-pdd years ago,perhaps can highlight some yi of  the dubious, changes that have  been brought about oyer .the'  years. The first two weeks of  July were generally .the accepted Jime as_schboi was,o/ut  and Mama and. the children  were picnic .minded, and ' actually these affairs were considered -that way. AVyluificjh  '���.outdoors oh a. lovely summer's  day' and "berries hi the bargain  -���what, could be much nicer.  It'was the washtulja and. buckets that ��� loomed large' in my  eye-purely we would not fill  all of ihem.     .The individual  tool was the 3 pound lard pail  that had done duty as a school  lunch pail, which same is now  a museum piece by the way.  As a rule .there had been some  piospecting done andy we  knew where to go to the best  advantage. If it had been a  good year for poUenizing  some of these patches.were an  astonishing sight. The~ vines  ' climbed over stumps and logs  and covered everything with  a red- and black scintillation  that defies description.  It was only then that I realized we would have no trouble filling all the receptacles  we had brought with us. It is  fitting to say here that where  this epic of sylvan splendor  occurred so' many years *ago  has recently come under the  gyppo's axe but I doubt whe-  ther this will bring back that  red and black profusion again.  education t$ expand  -3"he schools   and   education    attending, the    education    de-  ���ifi  ���committee,, of    the   Canadian  Forestry       Association      this  month approved the necessary  budget, to continue its effective schools program and  recommended an increased  program aimed at assisting  teachers and youth leaders.  In addition tb the revision  and publication of the regular  ;iist of conservation teaching  aid kits and miscellaneous  school literature, the committee discussed plans for enlarging the film library with  -the production of new film  ���strips, slides and manuals and  approved the 1955 schedule of  the co-operative school lecture  lours carried out in conjunction with the B.C. Forest Service. Lecturers from both the  :Forest Service and the association are already in the field  and will be covering a slightly  larger territory this season.

When I was a  (BY >fiR|X OLESQN)  This is the season /for    the  big gamble.      th the    eastern  provinces, y especially Quebec,  : and; northernyNew .England,  also up-state N��w~York,  : the  season for making maple syrup, is at hand.  '   There is.ho  greater gamble in    the    farm  ..year.- '    _ '".''  The element of the gamble  conies in the fickleness of the  weather in these parts.      The  ��� ideal sugarin' weather would  be a'long series of warm sun-  ;/ny, windless days, and nights  when'the thermometer would  dive to 15 or 20 above zero.  ��� This nightly /freeze/and daily  thawing quickens the life of  the tree and the sap bucket.  The end of sugaring comes  when the buds qn the branches have once begun to    swell  and  change  the whole   chemistry of the sap. The last run,  which in' the old days was reserved    for    making    vinegar  arid rough sugar, jsvery dark.  People who have never taken  a part in this gamble imagine  that  maple  sugar and  maple  syrup should be udark as ma.  . hogany whereas jthe A No! 1  , product should    be    a    light  translucent .amber!      Its taste  should /.be   delicate   whereas  <���;���;��� the last .rjjhyproduct: and^the  .,. a^uXie\T.flXe^k^f^^^'.-.,are  y strong ko^iM^hio'^j^elyy^yyk'''  -But jyou   p/pbably    wonder  where. the    element    of    risk  comes ��,in.,to .raake the gamble.  .Many a fatmetu has"   scattered  ; it&e ^ue^ets^ 500  to /1.500  of  , them,, arjogrid the tijees /to be  : tapped, " l��rolcen  the roads by  ..dragging tyvo logs' held ;apart  ' fciy ,.tfie" width.^f Xhe' collecting  tank pn runners,    drawn    by  plunging horses,    tapped    the  tre.es, often three buckets    to^  the, ...tFee',;;,/^;then   jioped . .the"  C-. warmli- ic<jm)es'";^i^*fe^^i-:. !jib,e/  shoStv melts1,' the buds"   swell,  the spring is beautiful, but the  buckets have    collected    little  or no sap   and   must   all* be  scalded and stacked away.  ���No one has evpr figured out  exactly at what pohit it pays.  One friend -~of mine sums it  up philosophically by saying:  "There ain't much else I  could beya-doin' so I might  s'well be up ta sugar-house."  Another careful part of  syrup making is the filtering  of sap. and then the. very careful filtering through thick  closely woven cloth or felt, pf  the hot syrup.  Once the  resi-  ��� With..- the sun low to the/westward and cows to milk it was  time to leave and the old skid  road seemed a long drag with  small children and everything full of berries including  ourselves.  The Don Cossack chorus  sings a nostalgic Russian song  "In praise of raspberries." _���  would some : artist could do  something for our blackberries. The odd black bear and  the blue grouse were.the only  other gleaners cf . this vast  harvest.  .  It is sadly apparent that  those days are as a book that  is irrevocably closed and the  pages that made those golden  days gone forever. It is perhaps as well because the - invasion of such places by the  beer bottle and burger brigade  would make God's angels  weep.  SUGAHING-  ���*������ OFF PARTY  due' nitrates, called the/ nitrje;  are but of it, it is as clear as  / captured' sunlight,     y' y1 ;  When I   was   a   boy,    the  gamble-had a very    pe^spn^l  element in it.   / It, wag '^hie_ly;  the question   as   to   whether  there wpuld be a sugaring-bff  party on   . a   Saturday 3vheh  there would be no school .and  whether there would be snow  enough to have some of    the  .molten sugar spread on it to  quickly crackle and    caramel-  : ize. It's a food for the    gods  and a dream to    the    dentist  for it can remove any inlay or  filling in  one second.  y  - A sugaring off party, if you  "don't know it, is a ritual;" celebration toward the latter half  of sugaring.  The syrup is boiled down,  v not it_ the eyaporatpr but in  a deep, tin pah some four feet  long three feet wide- arid two  feet deep. It boils up. in coffee-  colored foam and a few quick  dashes of sweet cream will  send it protesting down again.  After it has boiled to the  right temperature, the great  four handled pan is lifted off  the archway onto some wooden saw-horses. You take a  long handled dipper, /fill h  half full iai^ tfi^ygo ^^X tp  ; "v^^ftice; cleah^sw^-lia^^  ppurv jt in long streams where  ���ft hisses anid- ; turns to. V cbh-  gealOd. earaniel! Tl^en pn a  wooden stick or hand 'carved  email oaddle you wind it up  and then you proceed to ��� fill  the inner mdh and decorate  the outer man.  If you are very refined and  averse to kneeling iii the  snow, you car. pack milk pans  (a forgotten heme implement)  with snow and repeat the process in miniature. Sour pickles  .and. plain./ o^,���: tm^weetened  i&5d^g|jri(^^oit:bi^ .-''  complete the -fare. A little  fuzz from the; mittens provides : occasional roughage.  Aa I write this snow ia coming down blindingly. Only a  few buckets on a tree near  the house are visible. On the  porch, on an electric stove,  two buckets boil down, and  perhaps will make eventually  a quart of syrup, from 35 to  40 quarts of the clear colorless slightly sweet sap. The  big sugar house and its wood -  pile are buried in snovv for  there were nO takers this  year for the large sized gamble.

On Set. 18, 1875, a  was born of the Fanti tribe  on the west coast of Africa.  His ancestors for generations  had been fighters, revelling in  the bloodiest kinds of cruel  and savage warfare, and often  indulging in the most; degraded ' forms of cannibalism.  While still a mere boy he  was sent by his father to  school on the Gold Coast,  and there, for the first time,  in his life, he came" under'  the influence of white people.  His progress at school was  remarkable. He    learned    his  .states,.y andv   entered    Livingstone  College in North  Carolina, as: a student in the /freshman class. Side by side with  hundreds     of    American-born  students this black young man  from Africa took    his    place.  No student     at    the;ycollege  took, his  vow; ::m6ive ;seriously  or -made a better record than  Aggrey:'He was graduated in  1902,  and was at the   top of  a  specially, able/ class.

In 1920 a very important  arid most carefully -; selected  group, known as -the Phelps-  Stokes commission, visited  Africa in order to study educational matters.; /;Dr. -James  Aggrey ��� was invited to become  a member of the commission,  the only colored man thus  honored.   So he  returned    to  lessons so quickly  and . thor-    his  native - land,   just" as    he  oughly that his teachers could  hardly keep pace with him.  No" boy of such intelligence  had ever attended the school,  and at the age ' of fourteen,  after he had passed .through  all the standards, . he ��� was  was made a teacher, he had  also mastered- several -languages, and., became; an interpreter'.

The  commission visited all the  the countries of East Africa,  and carefully studied; schools  and colleges for natives  wherever . they went. They  also studied social conditions,  and indeed everything which  had to; do with the welfare of  the -African  people..  Wherever' Dr. Aggrey' went  in Africa he captivated, his  audiences! He�� addressed dozens of meetings made up p_  white people^ and they were  completely won over : to him  when they, saw him -/" and  heard him speak. He addressed large meetings in Cape  Town and in many other important towns and cities. The  Rand Daily Mail, an influential South African newspaper,  said: "Dr., Aggrey is probably  the most highlyVeducated man  in the world.'' If the whites of  /Africa were charmed by " Dr.  Aggrey, the black people  were,  if possible, even    more  enthusiastic.

Soon after his  return to London, England,  plans were made for a- great  native college to be built at  Achimota in Africa, and he  was appointed to ah important  position on the college staff,  and had-a great deal to do.  with the / plans for the f truly:  magnificent institution;;: the  first of its kindin Africa-  Unfortunately -Dr.3&ggfey  did not live to enjoy for long  his college about which he  had dreamed sb much: He  died very suddenly while on  a visit to America in the summer of 1927, when he was  just a little over 51 years of  age.1     '        ���������:<      ���'   -  "Testimonies, to his 'noble  character came from three  continents.

Suddenly the- Sechelt Peninsula realized it was a nearby  point. People began scrutinizing their money closly, and  asking "How can we tell?"  The R.C.M.P. booklet gives  some Hints on how to protect  yourself from loss by knowing  your money  All Bank of Canada notes,  except $100 and $1000 notes,  have the picture of George the  II, if they are of the 1937  . issue.and Her Majesty, Elizabeth II appears on- the notes  of the 1954 issue: $100 bills  have the portrait of Sir John'  A. Macdoriald on them, and  that of Sir Wilfred Laurier  is on-the $1000 bills;  It is suggested that if the  portrait on a suspected bill is  folded in half, arid compared  with the half on a $1 bill", the  difference will be readily seen  The SI bill is suggested  because it is seldom, if ever,  countefeited.  COins \have been faked over  the  years,  and     several    tips  are given ort the    recognition  of 'good'   money.  When dropped on a hard surface, it will  have   a  clear  ringing     sound.  It  has  a  sharp  clean   feel  in  the  fingers.  The  milling,    or  reeding,  is  even and regular,  and   the  coin     is    practically  impossible    to    cut    with    a  knife.  Take time to > examine bills  and coins of various denominations, and become familiar  with them, their design, workmanship, coloring and inater-t  iail. It will be so much easier  to protect j'ourself from the  fake when you... know the  genuine article so  Well.    ������>.-.-'  MORE COLLEGE STUDENTS  An. estimated 67,500 full-  time students are enrolled im  Cariada for the current aca-  deinic year, 3,300 or five percent more than in 1953-54\ '���'��� '���":  at  CARDS;    GAN0IES/   NOVELTIES  fhe Traditional EAST1R  HAMS/  FRUITS; VEGETABLES      ALWAYS TRIJI-Y FRESH  "'.'''DELIVERIES    -.   :"   "."���;���'':' ''^y--   :'y\  Phone ���.

Later,  Dr. Playfair was joined by Dr.  Alan Swan whose partnership  with Dr. Playfair has brought  the medical service of the hospital to a high degree of effi-.  ciency. J ''���''.:���'"'  Soon after their arrival,  both Dr. Playfair and Dr.  Swan organized regular visits  to areas in Jervis Inlet, Halfmoon Bay and other districts  in. the upper Peninsula to  bring medical service to such  districts.  On January,9th, 1955, commencing St. Mary's Silver Anniversary, over 100 representative men and women of the  area served by. the hospital gathered at the Community Hall  in Madeira Park.

In reviewing countries  in the UN he said there were  two nations who had for centuries maintained a great silence but who now had a tendency to "o'er-leap themselves"  in  their, verbosity.  He maintained they had  turned tise of the UN into  abuse. He did not want to see  them shut up.  He argued that the old bugaboo of the League of Nations was still shadowing operations of the UN ��� the disarmament question. The problem in the days of the League  of Nations was how to disarm  without losing security. The  lack of power to be able to  enforce operations towards  disarmament caused its downfall.  Dr. Eastman explained Canada's stand on the matter as  one of many points of view  that existed. He said that ii_  coriversation with Sir Robert  Borden, the premier. at that  time, Canada's attitude toward  Article 10, the disarmament  clause, was that* as Canada  had just won its independence  from Great Britain it did not .  see its way clear to allow the  transfer' of any sovereignty  over to Geneva, the League  of Nations headquarters.  The present UN has supranational powers to call for or-,  ganization     of      international  police but the power of veto  ' used by Russia and held by  other powers as well, has killed the idea..  This he said has resulted in  the gradual widening of the  breach between Russia and the  western world and has also  been responsible for the emergence of NATO as the only  available means cf the western world to achieve its objective.  As regards control vo| atomic  weapons, Russia, he said, is  stili unwilling to have faith  in the other nations Of the  world. He explained how after 1919 the nations surrounding Germany had    the    same  .;rfears and would; not countenance' international control.  Now the pressure is on Rusr  sia and it, too, is balking, .r  Discussing the situation between the/western powers and  Russia along, with Red  China,  �� Dr. Eastman. said the UN    is  tVfaced, with the same dilemma  that taped the League of ������Na-  ? tions; It is suffering-from a  lack of power' as a result of  this fatal diyifidon.  /'.He asked was there any  cure?
