Welfare and inflation  Sweden, like most other countries with socialist governments, is discovering somewhat belatedly that too much  * welfarism' invariably breeds inflation. A doctrinaire devotion to the concept of full employment and a costly panoply  of welfare measures have brought the Swedish Government to (the Verge of a serious economic crisis.  Unwilling to dismantle its welfare-state measures or  to abandon its belief in the blessings, real or imagined, of  full employment, the .socialist. Government! of Sweden is resorting to all sorts of strange "panaceas to cope with the  steadily worsening infation which threatens to undermine  the country's entire economy. It is, perhaps, not surprising  that the socialist regime should seek to cook up an anti-inflationary recipe the chief ingredients of which are controls, more controls and still more controls.  Strangest of all socialist Sweden's supposedly anti-  inflationary measures is the deliberate shackling of investment. A 'temporary' tax of 12 percent has been imposed on  ..'���new corporate investment and industrial construction permits have been limited to a quota of .$38 million in 1955.  None of the tried and tested anti-inflationary devices successfully employed by non-socialist countries have been invoked. The orthodox device of raising interest rates has  been rejected, not for economic reasons, but for reasons of  political expediency, in the fear that it might interfere with  the Government's subsidized housing construction program.  The tragedy of: it- is that the measures adopted by  the Swedish Government in its attempt to. halt inflation  are likely to prqye worse than the disease itself.  LETTERS to EDITOR  Editor: There is news recently of where the fantastic  stumpage price of $69 ��� per  thousand board feet was paid  for some timber in the Fraser  Valley. This in itself riiakes it  quite plain that the Forestry  Commission of enquiry has  not come .; any too ��� soon,        ���  This sum is actually more  than the present market value  of the logs. In the Seehelt Forest Reserve there is a great  deal of disquiet'rpVjer.--the'-cut--  ting arrangements where regular small loggers have been officially curtailed, and new outfits move in and get cutting  rights without as much as by  your leave.  The weakly attempt to form  an association locally to prepare a brief for presentation  to the Commission pointed up  the fact there are no independent loggers left in the district or very few. This reluct  tance makes it 'reasonable to  assume that there is "something rotten, in Deririiark" and  it would be reassuring to the  rank and! file o| the local lumber industry, at. least, if some  deodorizing by the^., Forest;  Branch was to take-place. This  might lead to some explanation of the contradictory rules?  and regulations.  i-���'. A Reader.  the advertising matter always  interested me.

Being more or less aware of  our. station in life coupled  with a humble and a contrite  heart we do not discern ourselves with saddles and legs of  lamb like the Scribes and  Pharisees in the fleshpots of  the nearby metropolis. For my  money I prefer the New Zealand Jamb as I think our  breeders here have quite a  way to go yet before they  catch up with these folks. Be  that as it may we are definitely net mutton eaters in this  country. Seemingly, neithe is  the English; housewife when  she finally has enough in her  purse to insist on home-killed  rumpsteak.  . This hodge-podge of. gustatory ideas got launched after  I read what one cf the " hon  gen" in the mother of parla-  ments asked the Hon. Minister  what did he propose to do with  the mountains of mutton that  were piling up in storage.:  From the family circle comes  a captious comment on the vision of a British housewife  leading home a bullock for  slaughter on the hearth 5. or  hob. ������?'���'  ��� .

Times have changed  though and sheep have changed with them from the large  mature sheep .q the yearlings  that are bred small and sold  as lamb.  The modern family and  style of life has no place for  a 12 pound leg of lamb or mut  ton which would have to be  hung for weeks. It was not unusual for farnilies who could  afford it to have a select leg  of mutton put aside at Christmas well powdered with flour  and hung for consumption at*  Easter. Before the days of cold  storage the preserving of meat  or fish against, a famine or  short season was a trade of its  own. The Indians of the plains  with their pemmican arid the  coast Indians with fish drying,  salt curing of the Vikings  were all the same pattern.  The southern Europeans  were sausage folk arid pick-  lers, meat was pickled in wine  in very early times on the  Mediterranean.

I'm naming this story  The Horse that Refused to  Pack.  Back about 1984, four of us  were going up to Longborough  Inlet to fish early creek Sock-  eye. , Father and son Eddie  Reid from Pender, Dan Mac-  Kay . and myself. This Reid  family at the time1 was four in  number^ now is 42. Eddie has  nine children and Cecil, his  brother, 12. No wonder we  need more and bigger schools.  After, going through the Yu-  calta Rapids going north, we  decided to stay at Shoal Bay  for a more favorable tide to  go through Green Point Rapids. - :\. '���-  We were tied together in  Davis, Eddie and I. Eddie had  a little skiff on deck and just  about 1/2 mile from the wharf  he suggested he throw the  skiff over and take a spoon  and lead without a rod to see.  if he could get a salmon to  make fish chowder. I was to  take the two boats in to the  dock.  * I was just about halfway to  the dock-when I' looked back  and- here was a sight for the  Holly wood cameramen. Eddie  had hooked a big 25 lb. spring.  "He was leaping clean out of  the water arid towing Eddie  around in circles. He soon got  this fish aboard and I turned  the boats, around to. pick him  vpy'y''/;''-,:'���' ':;'-V^'-;vT v\  ���"���;':'���'.0._k arrival at dock a smart  looking fellow, came over and  as they had a_i*seeri the performance of Eddie and the  fish, asked Eddie how he  could catch a spring salmon, so  quickly. "Here I am," he said,  "up here for a number of  years, spent hundreds of dollars of fishing gear and a beautiful boat arid all I got in. that  time was a little four pounder."-   .    .  In the meantime I was busy  cleaning the fish. I was the  cook and was going to cut off  about 5 lbs. of the tail part  for chowder and the rest, approximately 15 pounds, I was  going to throw' in the water.  He'asked me if i I'd sell him a.  hunk. "Oh no," I said, 'Til  give it to you providing you  go up to the store to get us  enough ice cream for dessert.  Well, the next thing I knew he  was coming down the wharf  lugging a full gallon of ice  cream/with hirii and it was a  very warm day. . It was welcomed but too much for us. .  There were a few kids around  I suppose the poor horse took  one look'arOund when he got  there and decided > this was no  job..Nfor him and I didn't blame  liirri. Looking. at the hele ,up  so far from the sea level you  would _hink it was almost impossible for a mountain goat  to get up there never mind a  horse. He said that frorii that  day to.this "we can't get even  get ahold of that horse .let  alone making him go up there,  especially when he hears the  .whistle of the,, Union ^Steamships boat. He gees'further  out in the water," he said, and  /'the son of a gun can even  swimf' and sure enough a few  minutes after, the old Venture  came around the point. That  was back in 1934. Later I looked for the horse and enquired  about the guy, . but I understand he; couldn't get any more  money out of the shareholders.  Whether, the mine ever produced anything is very doubtful, - but he had a good time  during the hungry 30's.  ��� Kum-A-Gen  Coffee Shop  Offers Lunches, Snacks  Good Home-Cooked  Meals  Convenient,    Pleasant  Below Post Office  ANNE    GARY  ���'  r     ��������� '   I'; '      \  SPECIALS  Hamburgers Deluxe  CHIPS  Excellent Meals  FERRY CAFE  Theatre Bldg.,  Gibsons  Dining Room  TRY   OUR   SPECIALTIES  Breast of Chicken  Fr&sh B.C.

BRITISH   COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE COMPANY  A few years ago, a student  in a Scottish university upon  himself brought the displeasure of the authorities. He  wasted his time in pool rooms  and bowling alleys when he.  ought to have been studying  and so got low marks in the  examinations. At a meeting of  the college staff, some professors wanted to expel him,  which would have been a severe humiliation for him and  his family.  One professor said: "God  gave us eyes to see with,, andi  we can see this youth is lazy."  To this one of the older professors said: "Let us give the  boy another chance. It is true  God gave us eyes, but he also  gave us eyelids ���H that some-  tiriies we should not see." (I  like that old man's -attitude,  and I am,glad he carried    his-  ' ''POlnt.)'   "X-'-QX:   ���'���~;/v<-':  7v.~-'     ��� y "*':'. y*X-X*'.  I hope the, ;yqung,7 student  will make good. He wouldn't  be the, first lad who made good  after'getting off tb a bad start. 7  Perhaps, the lad was lonely  and 7 had not made many  friends; anyway a reprimand  .ho doubt brought him, to his  senses. .  Frank Crane once wrote an  article  entitled:      Blessed  are  the  Overlookers.       There  are  not too. many of them; we are  all a little inclined to be swift  in judgement' ori   others    and  ready  to condemn  those  with  whom we do not agree!; a little  patience and toleration' is better.      One class; of men I feel  sorry for is    detectives;    men  whose job it is to be constantly On tlie    look-out    for    the  faults of others.    The trouble  with that attitude is that when  you are looking .for a    thing,  you are apt to see it, when it  isn't there.    Abraham Lincoln  used to tell a story of a   man  who thought he saw an    owl  on a tree outside    his 'room;  later he discovered it was    av  pimple on his own nose.  ������*���������     * -    *  None of Us is perfect. There  is a good story told of a good  man who, when he 7" saw a  criminal, driven, in an open  7 cart, to be hanged, said1: "But  for the grace of Gcd, it could  have been me." When we read  "of men and women-being put  behind prison walls we should  reriiernber that they may have  been under.severe pressure.  When someone ,asked General Gordon how he could be  so patient with the Arabs of  his day, he replied: "I have  faults of my own." That was a  wise remark made by a great  man in his closing days: "I  see that good men are not as  good as I thought they were  and. so-palled bad men are not  as bad. as I once believed."    '  There is hardly a day passes  that we do ..not find occasion  to exercise patience, kindness  and toleration. I have a firm  conviction that if Religion does  not make us kind arid forgiving, then it has'not done very  much for us. All our preaching, praying,, and hymn singing means little if we are  hard and self-righteous.  All that we know about Jesus makes it clear he was gra-  l^im,,!.[.j.i   cious and merciful towards  the weak and wayward. Think  of his testament of the woman  taken in adultery and also of  Peter who had failed him completely; when the risen Jesus  met Peter for the first time  after Peter's denial of him, Jesus never even mentioned the  matter.

The first thing I  feel that needs to be explained is that the Sunshine Coast  Kiwanis Club is in little fear  of any of the local ball clubs  much less the Chops' Mops.  On the second hand Strawberry Teas are a very nice  way to spend a sunny afternoon. But if the Mops ''feel  that a return match is in order, Dry Gulch Reichelt and  a few more of the old Pros  have come up with a suitable  idea that would put the girls  on a more equal footing. Of  course, we being the Victory  team, feel the honor of picking the time should be -ours:  This berig 2.00 in the afternoon ori*the-lst day of "January 1956.

Buckley, new  principal of Pender Harbour  school reports he was concerned over- the heavy- enrolment expected in the two high  school rooms and suggested  the board consider dividing  the activities thereby providing an extra room until the  proposed addition is constructed. The board decided to take  no action until the number of  pupils can be established.  George Hunter's bid of $1  per mile for transporting pupils from: Gambier Island to  �� Granthams Landing was turned down as being too high.  His was the only bid received.  New tenders will be - sought.  Owing to the fact a road and  bridge now cross Canoe Pass,  students on the .Whiskey  Slough to Madeira Park school  run, can now walk to school,  so the transportation used in  the past was discontinued.  Tenders for construction of  ichemical toilets and* a store-  , room at Nelson Island school  resulted in. one tender, from  Mr. A. J. Harding and amounting "to $1,500. The board ac-  - cepted the tender of Mr. Harding.  Mr. Chaster was given authority to arrange for the  painting of the exterior of  Bowen Island school provided  the quotation will be within  the budget allowance.  nun mwm  Sunday, Aug. 25  ANGLICAN  llth Sunday after Trinity  ��� St. Bartholomew's,    Gibsons  11.00 a.m.   Morning   Prayer.
