This motion was passed un-  - ariimously by the Village Commissioners at Tuesday night's  meeting following a discussion  arising from the calling out of  the Fire Brigade Sunday night  to some burning shags close to  the Cemetery on Sechelt highway.  Chairman  Drummond   com-  ' mented on the calling out  of  the fire brigade to extinguish j  "a fire near the cemetery which ;  ��� turned out to   be   a   pile   of '  snags. The matter was looked  upon with some dissatisfaction  as the fire was hot considered ;  s: unusual. .-._������:;.  ���''"' Village Clerk Burns thought !  ��� it was "not fair   to   haul    out  ������.. the firemen for such types of  fires. The question as to liow  <.. the alarm was sent in, in view  ,.  of the fact the fire    was v not  , considered dangerous, was  raised.  This brought on a discussion  . as to what has happened     to  {the    movement   towards    the  > greater    fire    protection    district. It was pointed out that '  two months have elapsed and  nothing has been  done in    a  serious way.  .      A motion was passed to   extend water facilities from the  y school    road    down :   Sargent  rqad; to Lot 20, a distance    of-  about  500 feet.

"It's a wonder .anyone gets  off the ferry after they see  that,'" he added. A revision of  the Zoning Bylaw and the  Building Bylaws was suggested by Mr. Burns, in keeping  with development underway  \n the Village.  A debate on the taxation of  department store1 trucks* delivering in Gibsons area  brought 'forth- various points  of view as to- how the tax  should be imposed and on  what trucks also how many  because of the variety of  trucks that would be involved  in deliveries.

There is a Cancer Unit in  Powell River now but it is too  far away from the southern  parts of this area to be of  practical use. The Cancer Unit  has charge'of welfare, housing  and other matters concerning  cancer patients or prospective  patients. It is for this specific  type of work that formation  of a Cancer Unit is  desired.  W. C. Harris of the Powell  River unit visited various  points -between Gibsons and  Powell River to try. and . obtain support. Pender Harbour  is showing considerable interest.  Mr. Harris reports  that    if  the area can be organized into one unit it is quite    likely  the B.C. Cancer Society would  send in an organizer to    get :;  the .unit started..    Mr. Harris  suggested it could    be    called  the Sechelt Peninsula   Cancer-  Unit.      Mr. Harris added that   :  Ernie Pearson,    president    of  Sechelt Board  of Trade    was-:  showing. an    interest    in    the  move.  The budget for School District No. 46 of $347,120 for  1955 has now been finally approved by the Department of  . Education and the government  grants for the current year established. This was announced  at Monday's meeting of the  board. These grants will  amount to $207,009 and a tax  levy of -10.28 mills, which  compares with a levy * of  12. 68 mills hi 1954, will  provide for-the district's share  of the budget.'  The revised assessments for  1955 have been established at  $12,679,961 as compared with  $8,225,000 in 1954. This increase reflects the "equalized  assessment policy of the present government arising out of  the new school financing legislation passed at the last session of the house and the normal growth of the district.  - Owing tot. the shortage of  teachers it has been necessary  for many.boards to engage  teachers who had special qualifications but only elementary  .certification, to teach High  School grades and to'pay these'  teachers on the high school  scale.  In the past this situation has  not been. recognized by the  Department of Education for  the purpose of calculating  basic grants for teachers' salaries, grants only being made  on the basis cf "the elementary certification of these teachers. This anomaly will be  rectified by the government  in the future and grants will  be made on the actual salaries  paid to  these  teachers.  In connection with the new  building program the building  committee, was authorized to  interview architects and to  engage a firm to make a survey of the proposed building  program and to prepare preliminary plans and estimates  for the information of the  board and the Department of  Education. This information is  necessary before '���any'*" further,  steps can be taken in the preparation of the proposed Bylaw to be submitted t0 the  taxpayers  in  the  near future.

(BY  STAN BOWDLER)  The Hon-. James Sinclair,  federal minister of fisheries,  paid another of his welcome  visits to the Harbour Legion  Branch 112, on Friday evening. A full house heard him  speak on veterans' legislation,  fisheries and his coming trip  to Soviet Russia.  Jimmy recently spoke at  the annual meeting of the Vancouver Board of Trade where  over 1,000 businessmen gave  him a standing ovation. In the  Legion Hall at Pender Harbour with around 50 rugged  men who make their living  mainly from the seas and the  woods, the general effect was  the same. "Jimmy" has a. personality that projects itself  sincerely to any group, regardless of politics or party. The  Minister was obviously thoroughly at home right from his  introduction by President  Fred Claydon, through his  talk and down to the    oyster  feast that concluded the evening.  His remarks on veterans  legislation covered a summary  of the ten years since the war  and included such information  as the fact that $54,000,000  was spent on bringing veterans up to date on unemploy-  s ment insurance after the end  of the war. There were more  old vets in B.C. than in any  other province, he said, because they could live better at  less cost at the coast. Over  $2,500,000,000 had been spent  by the federal government for  veterans' assistance of all  types since the last war, Mr.  Sinclair stated, in concluding:  this portion of his talk.  On fisheries, he stressed the  fact that the salmon and halibut catch on the B.C. coast  this year was one of the greatest in history, with only the  herring situation marring the  year's production. "Fishsticks"  produced from frozen cod was  a sensational new development and was enjoying great  popularity in the East.  The minister told of the  many difficulties in. working  cut a formula for unemployment insurance to cover fishermen, and promised to continue his efforts for satisfactory legislation.  When he reached the portion of his talk dealing with  his visit to the Soviet Union  it appeared that this was what  most of his listeners had been  waiting for. Mr.    Sinclair  stated there was a definite  lessening of international tension between the Soviet Union  and the rest of the Western  world. The only exception to  this was certain hot-headed  elements in the United States.  The factors which helped  to produce this more relaxed  atmosphere he said, were the  success of "NATO with 14 nations acting together on ioint  problems;  the  fact  both   East  and West had nuclear weapons that could annihilate the  other and the gradually increasing belief that the pres-.  ent rulers of Russia were not  the type of madmen represented by the late unlamented Mr.  Hitler.  He was going to Russia to  attend the meeting of the International Whaling Commission to be held in Moscow on  July 18 to 25. He had been advised by the Soviet ambassador that he would be allowed  t0 go freely to fishing areas,  particularly those On '. the  White Sea, and to the Siberian  Fishing Institute, considered  cne of the world's finest,  which had previously been a  closed book to foreign visitors.  Sinclair's talk was received  with hearty applause and a  request by president Claydon  that upon his return from behind the "iron curtain" he  come back to t'.e Harbour and  tell the boys ell about it.  and new fields at one time. To  facilitate this work the students had agreed to use the  elementary field for a playing  area this year.  However, the board considered that the establishment of  the Little League was a matter of such importance for the  youth of the district that an  effort will be made to have  the ditching and grading of  the whole playing area completed by May 15 and, by postponing the seeding of the old  playing field until the Fall it  is hoped that this playing  field will be available, unseeded,  by May  15.  At the moment the ground  of the new area is too soft for  the ditching machine and other equipment to operate but  given some fine weather the  work will be rushed and the  elementary field can be used  by the Little League for, a  time if completion is delayed.  Detailed information was received from the Madeira Park  Community Club of the work  performed by this organization on the Pender. Harbour  School playground. The board  had agreed some time ago .to  set aside the amount of $500  as its contribution to this  work r.~d. a?, the statement indicated th_. work to the value  of about $2000 had been  completed by the Community  Club, partly by voluntary labor, the board authorized payment of $500 to the club.  VON work  increasing  The regular board meeting  EJphinstone Branch Victorian  Order of Nurses took place  April 14 in Selma Park Community Club. Miss Mabel  Cooper, the branch nurse, re-  :por,ted an ; increase in the, number of patients using the service and a consequent increase in number of visits  made.  The department of Veterans  Affairs, TB Control, and Cancer Society of Canada, all re-  1 fer patients to the branch  nurse. Nursing care and preventative nursing care are also  carried out on the Sechelt Indian Reserve.  The meeting was advised of  a donation of $70 which had  been made by the Wilson  Creek  Community Club.  The annual campaign for  funds starts on May 2. Attractive flyers have been printed  to be distributed prior to the  campaign and canvassers in  the various areas are ready to  start.  The branch requires $3,600  over and above known sources  of revenue, tot carry on the  service for the next year. All  funds are spent locally and  those who administer the  funds are all volunteers.  Used clothing  depot sought  Wanted: A social service inclined organization to be a  collection point for used and  cast-off clothing.  A need for such an. organization has developed as the  result of a request reaching  The Coast News for someplace to have a depot in which  such clothing could be placed  for distribution whenever the  need  arose.  The request cited possibilities of other people wanting to  dispose of usable clothing but  not having any place to send  it have been forced to thro  them away or use them up as  old rags.  Opening up of a collection  point, even if only twice a  year, in the Spring and Fall  months, might provide a good  used clothing bank against a  serious need at some future  date.

No one who has lived much  in any American city would  deny this; especially in the  large cities such as Chicago  and New York. The unpardonable sin is to loiter; no one  wants to miss one turn of a  revolving door. It isn't that  bad but bad enough.  The philosopher, Einstein,  said: "I always think of the  United States as the land of  interrupted conversations." I  think he meant this as a compliment; he found people so  friendly they could not wait  to shake his hand. Take the  matter of motoring, speed has  become a virtue; the man who  remains      within      regulation  There is a saying: . "Get  money and you will be able  to get others to work for you."  I den't -see anything smart  about that. As long as I am  able, I want to do my work.  I believe in what someone has  called "The angel of toil."  Work is a blessing, not a  curse, and I never did care  for an old song which began:  "I wish I was in heaven sitting  down."  I    have   known    some    extremely  busy men who    held  positions    of    great    responsibility, but they were all men  who were  capable  of meditation. Once when in New York  I had to spend some time with  a leading publisher. I knew he  carried a. lot cf responsibility;  he had to make important decisions.      As we walked along  the street he invited me to enter a great church where   we  .Owing to the late arrival of a cut "A Logger's  .    Tales"  will be   found   on  another page of this, issue.  sat for 10 or 15 minutes. When  we came out he said: "That  isn't the church to which I  belong but I often drop in for  meditation���I see things in a  different light and also get  hold of myself."        .  It is a long time since a devout Hebrew wrote the 37th  Psalm, but he must have been  an intelligent man. He knew  what it was to be worried, harassed and perplexed, but he  also knew where to find peace.  Listen to this: "Rest in the  Lord and wait patiently for  Him ... commit thy way unto the Lord, and he shall  bring it to pass."  Our quotation to-day is by  Augustine: "God is patient because He is eternal."  we are under the Power Commission or B.C. Electric It  would not be economic for the Power Commission to be  isolated along the Sunshine Coast while B.C. Electric is  allowed to expand and pick the juicy power plums along  the coastal area as they develop.  It is no stretch of the imagination to liken the power  situation to that of the recent bus line negotiations when  an established bus service : was temporarily side-tracked  and the franchise given another company not so well'established. The PUC ruling on this was reversed.   Will the,  gers and tensions of the world.  It was the Spring of 1952, in  May, in fact May. 19, being  two days after the Norwegian  National or Eidsvclldag Holiday. I was about y 200 miles  north of the Arctic Circle and  well east of the North Cape.  We had sailed* down the Pas-  yikEstuary on the Sarict Svir  ihuri and into the norther-  most harbor of'. the Western  Natione, Kirkenes.    The    mid-  ers boast to.their friends about  hitting 90.  ��� *       *      *  I often wonder what all the  hurry is about. Where are  these people going who are  doing 80 or 90 miles an hour?  I have a friend���a minister���  who was fined for speeding  one Sunday;. I asked him what  he was going to preach about  and he.wouldn't tell me, but  my g[uess is he was to preach  power situation become another debatable subject?

There is considerable weight behind arguments that  can be put forward by the Power Commission. It is already  active in the area. With extensions and an increase in  power at the source it could do as good a job as any newcomer into the field. It will be interesting to watch what the  PUC will do. To. those persons well-versed in behind-the-  iscenes affairs the PUC verdict will" be one of extreme  interest no matter which way it goes.  ON READING AN OLD NEWSPAPER*  Spring moving caused them to   sort  through   their  chattels and so they came  upon the  newspaper.     It  was  slated in the eighleen-seventies and the most prominent of  the sedate headlines said, "Crisis Deepens."      It happens  that the same paper is still being, published, although with  its name altered, a bit.    "Crisis Deepens," was among the  deadlines of the current issue.'     This continuity of crisis  cheered' them up. In a changing world, crisis was a thing  you could depend on.      Imminence of disaster, become a  norm, gave stability to their lives.  They went on with their sorting, feeling that even  the uncertainty of Spring moving wasn't so bad after all.  ���The Printed Word.  Maybe someday something will be done about those  iauto drivers who insist on having rather a long conversation on their horns as they pass each other.  Not wishing to appear anxious, but just wondering:  What is the situation regarding the district fire protection  movement?  Also how does the Ratepayers' Association expect to  exist without publicity? Very few people knew of:the last  meeting ���  Keeping clean a big business  es is mostly rebuilt afte'*  World War II. It is a frontier  of Norwegian piety, sound  fishing skill . and military  alertnes.'  *       *       * .  Up there Spring was just  beginning and this day ' was  very fine. It was possible finally to get a car of ancient vintage but technically sound  (trust the Norwegians for  that) and start an the adventure. We went through . the  town and out to the hamlet of  Elverum where the professors  and other intellectual ��� nonconformists were imprisoned  by the. Nazis, during World  War II. Some wreckage of  those harsh and ��� bitter das's  was still visible.  Up on the right    wound    a  small narrow gauge ore    railway from the Jakobsvann Iron  Mines which were  just   about  back in  operation  after    war  ruin.    We    swung    around    a  series of hills and came onto  a rise of land with frozen river  blue-white      winding      below.

Air is only one of the dozens  of    ingredients;   chemists  ifcave added to the plain-soap-  and-no-nonsense of    50    years  ago. The modern woman  luxuriates in    delicately    scented  toilet soap moulded in assorted fancy shapes. Grandma had-  to-be content with    a    chunk  lopped off a long bar in    the  grocer's shop. But in the 19th  Century, people    made     their  own  soap and  the brew    was  Iiorrible.      For    hundreds    of  years soap was made  in;   the  Siome by boiling lye with the  surplus decayed fats from the  Sdtchen and the farm. Looking  Sack at  the evil-smelling    result,  it is    hard , to    explain  -Mankind's    long-standing   passion for cleanliness.      It must  have  taken   a   hardy soul    to  face up to the rugged task of  taking a  bath!  But such fortitude-, was rewarded. Scientists have taken  ihe basic fat-and4ye formula  and transformed-it into a product delightful to use.  The modern soap industry  still practises its ancient" 'art  by boiling fat and lye together  in. a kettle. The old-iron    pot  The animal fats, once so unsa  yory, are now deodorized, and  some cocoanut cr olive oil ,is  usually, blended with them to  provide/ lather. Some chemicals are added to prevent: it  from going rancid^ others help  to soften hard water; and still  others improve the soap's  cleansing properties. Then  come the "frills" ��� perfume,  color, germicides, and sometimes air bubbles to make it  float! i  Keeping clean is a big business today. In Canada the soap  produced each year, not including synthetic detergents,  is worth about four million  dollars. But if scientists had  not made bathing a pleasure,  business,would not be nearly  so brisk!  RIDE A BUS.

Again 250  feet and the road swung up a  grade to the right. There was  quite a hill there.    Facing'us  were dark slits in the    rock.  On the rising road were two  triangular gates with stars on  top, which  being    visible    at  that distance must have   been  pretty  large.      Over all   that  rise was flapping in the    stiff  wind a large  red  flag.

President, American Federation of Labor:  "Collective bargaining, we have learned, can exist only in the environment  of political freedom. Where there is no  individual liberty, there is no free  trade-union movement, either.  "Every dictator from left to right, as a  first step in the consolidation of power,  has sought to destroy free trade unions.  "And so we are dedicated io freedom, not only political but also economic, through a system of pri-,>  vatu enterprise. We believe in the  American profit system. We believe in free competition. The American . private - enterprise system,  despite some defects, has achieved  far greater results for wage earners  than any other social system in  history.  *  "The American worker, without doubt,  is the best paid, hestc-oihed,�� and best-  housed worker ��n tlie world.      But he  can   and should be much better paid,  better   clothed   and   better   housed   in  1980. The'children of American workers have greater educational opportunities than children, of any other workers;  the   workers'  wives  and  families  have  greater comforts  and  opportunities for  social and cultural   development   than  families of workers in any other land.  These  comforts  and opportunities,   too.  can be greatly increased over the next  quarter century.  "We acre proud, understandably, of the  contribution of trade-unionism io the  changing American private - enterprise  system."  Increasingly, Canadian labor leaders are  declaring a similar opinion: That free  labor could not remain free under an  all-powerful state socialism form of  society���that it has most So gain by  dividing the fruits of the most productive . system mankind has ever devised  ��� the Freedom System of Canadian  life.

It was just 10 years ago ���  oh April 17, 1945 ��� that the  B.C. Power Commission was  established by the provincial  government, following passage  in the legislature of the Elec-  ..tric Power Act.  Today, the publicly-owned  utility, which, operates as a  Crown corporation looks back  at its first 10 years -of service.  It can point .to a commendable  record of improving th.e avail-  . ability and supply of, electrical  power in many sections of the  province.  Since its inception, the commission has expanded steadily  and met the rapid pace of  B.C.'s   post-war    growth.

About 60 percent of the customer total represents new  services ��� homes, businesses,  and industries which either  were not in existence 10. years  ago, or else had no electrical  service available.  Operating  in  many, of    the  . more sparsely-populated areas  of B.C. the Power, Commission  . has brought, adequate ���electrical service for the. first time  . to thousands    of   homes    and  farms,, and in such areas    has ;  enabled the people to    enjoy,  at reasonable rates, the amenities electricity, brings.  An indication in the improved standard of living  which is to a large degree   a't-  f. tributable to the improved  electrical service is the fact  that average domestic consumption for the commission's  system now is ;215 kilowatt  hours per month, about three  times the 74 kwh. average  monthly home usage in 1947.  The prospect of ample economic power has been an attraction to industry too. A major  factor in the decision of two  pulp mills and a newsprint  mill  to locate on    Vancouver  ' Island in recent years was- the  availability of power from the  168,000-hp John Hart development on Campbell River ���  the organization's largest hydro plant.  The Power Commission is  an operating utility, which, to  date, .^as received no government subsidy. Sale of electricity is its only source of revenue, and from this revenue,  all operating' costs and fixed  charges are met.

Commercial customers will  save 30 cents per month, gross  per kilowatt of billing demand.  The 10 percent prompt payment discount will continue  to apply.  The Power Commission  noted that the rate reduction  had been made possible by  the rapid growth of the interior community adjacent to  Kamloops.  All residential and commercial customers within the  boundaries of North J_am-  loops village will receive the  benefit of the rate cut on their  next bills.   "  THREE PROMOTIONS  R. D.

Here our salmon fry  enjoy a year in our streams  and rivers, then gaily swim off  to the great ocean to return  subject to certain hazards to  the same stream where they  came up out of the gravel into light.  * *      *  It would appear from what  we ki-ow, and we do not know  much, that cur friend of the  unwieldy name may stay on  or off the continental shelf,  but is suspected of skulking  about the inside waters most  of his time. The spring salmon, can and has been troll  caught, ia every month of the  year on the coast although  they are most generously in  evidence in the spring as they  trail the great shoals of herring that are movh-g up out of  the depths for spawning  along the beaches.  I have no doubt O.T. did  this every spring of his five  years cf life and knew most  of the easy' places to obtain  sustenance without too much  exertion. The Gulf mainland  springs that are due to spawn,  head up to their respective rivers, the Squawka, Tzoonie,  Squamish, and the Fraser  along abgjut midsummer, dallying- among the herring as  they go and quite willing to  take a lure. The prime fish or  non-spawners wander all over  getting tangled up quite often  enough in the web of the gill-  netters fishing for dog salmon, in the late fall.  * *      *  This winter spring salmon  has no equal for the table, anywhere. We have "et" them.  Gaspe fish and the true Atlantic salmon, also the Norwegian and the Tweed, but  Mr. O.T. caught about mid-'  December with the wind north  of east, has the sheen of . a  jewel and a flavor augmented  by consumption of large fat  herrings from the cold wintry  depths of the sea. .  Attainment ;cf a mature age  to O.T. is a miracle in itself  in view of the constant hazards that beset him from  birth. The list is impressive.  Here it is starting at the_ gravel  bar where he first, saw the  light, kingfisher, grebe or  loon, trout all kinds, mergansers, ospreys, otter, mink, seal,  sea  lion,  and finally man.  Fending  for  himself in  the  ecean he can/'unless surprised,  escape most of his murderous  neighbors for he  is swift    in  flight.  Mai_ and science   have  the last word in    his    ending  "for it  is man proposing    and  science  disposing    that    adju-  cates how many    shall    reach  the spawning beds    and    how  many  shall  run through    the  tallies in the canneries.      Actually this ending concerns for  the most part, the species that  arrive, off our shores in height  of   summer,    to    ascend     the  streams   and   rivers  to   spawn  and have    been    away    from  home for three or  four years  ���    wandering in the wide Pacific  0*     As I mentioned before O.T.  I lives around and consequently  1 it is O.T. that graces the   fishmongers slab so nobly in winter when other fish are scarce.  My logger friend    who    hews  wood and draws water in the  confines   of  Narrows   Arm  is  a sports fisherman of note and  when he sees the swoosh of a  big spring among the herring  schools that pass his door, so  to  speak, he sallies forth    to  see what can be done about it.  *       *      *  The fish portrayed is about  as good as they come'and is  a result of his ability in such  matters.

WHEN SPADlNQ  Don't make things too easy  for the criminal by being careless around your, home, is the  advice contained in the RCMP  booklet on Crime in Your  Community.  If you're away from home,  do not leave doors and windows unlocked, and don't  leave the house    in    darkness  when   .you    would    normally  have lights burning.  There are quite frequent reports, of household furniture,  clothing^ , rugs, silverware or  other household effects having  been stolen while the householder .was out for the evening. The family's absence was  noted by the burglar by    the  absence  of accustomed    lighting. ���.::'���.  Outside night lights discourage prowlers, and help to safeguard cars and other items  kept outside."        ; ���  If you go away for a visit,  be sure/that your newspaper  and  milk deliveries  are  stop  ped, so that an accumulation  of them . will not advertise  your absence. Do notify the  police so they may check your  home every' now" and again.  If you have a neighbor who  has the time, it is well to have  an arragenment made to have  your home checked frequently  for signs of instrusion, if your  planned! absence is for any  length of time.  >QtteEZE;mST(FOR  iSOJifCO^OlTiOM  Good soil is the backbone of  the garden. When plants fail  to respond to the labor of  careful weeding, watering, and  feeding, a soil deficiency is  usually the answer.

To add organic matter to  garden soil apply one, or better still, two inches of.manure,  peat moss, humus, decayed  leaves, compost pile material  or a mixture of these over the  area to be planted.  This layer of organic matter should then be turned under and mixed with the soil  during spading, as shown in  the accompanying Garden -  Graph.       ,  Introduction of an exterior  house paint that will not.blister, heralded as the most revo- .  iutionary paint development  in modern times, has been announced by H.-M. Cullis,.president of Marshall-Wells Canadian Companies, Winnipeg.  This new -paint, to be marketed under the trade name  of "Formula 5" is suitable, for  commercial- and industrial  uses/as well as private dwellings.' In addition tp being1  guaranted blister-proof, it "'''''is  also fume-proof, stain-proof,  self-priming, and can be used  on wood, masonry and other  common exterior'surfaces.  Historically, painting can  be traced back thousands of  Shears. As early as 430 B.C.,  white lead was used by the  Romans as a basic paint pigment.

Garden soil should be worked early in the spring when ft  is still moist but not sticky.  If the soil is in the right condition spading will readily  break up the earth clods.  Here is a simple test to determine if soil is in the right  condition for working: Remove a spadeful of soil, then*  take a handful from below  the surface.

President Fred  Claydon issued an.   open    ir_-  . yitation t0 every "young vet"  in the area to bring their Veterans Land Act problems to  the next meeting on May 13,  whether Legion members or  not, when* a representative of'  VLA will be present.  He also pointed but the important part that the Legion  played in community affairs  by reminding the members the  presidents of every organization in the Harbour were present, and all were Legion members. Special guests were Dr.  Playfair on his first visit, and  Magistrate Len Hambley returning to Legion activities after a lengthy absence.  New members admitted to  the Legion at this > meeting  were David Pollock and Ronald James Northrup.  Col. E. S. Johnstone, chairman, of .:St. IVfary's Hospital  Society, made'-a forceful appeal for support during the  current fund-raising drive. He  told the Legionaires that while  the early response to the Hospital's appeal was only a small  amount, communities of. Egmont, where the PTA had  contributed $31, proceeds of  an evening's entertainment,  and substantial contributions  from Gibsons, Roberts Creek  and Sechelt indicated that the  points outside the Harbour  were not only giving generous-'  ly, but doing it quickly, and  he urged that those present  follow their example.

The research will be financed,by funds raised in the present Conquer Cancer campaign conducted jointly by  BC Division, Canadian Cancer  Society and the BC Cancer  Foundation.  Officials of the biochemistry  department said studies at  UBC in the past year have uncovered substances which can  stop the growth of certain  types of experimental tumors.  This is exciting news in the  world of cancer research, but  Dr. Mavin Darrach, head of  the biochemistry department,  emphasized it is a long way  from a cure for leukemia in  humans.  "Out of the past year's  study has come encouraging  data which justifies laying  plans for more intensive investigation leading to clinical  tests," he said.
