 Published   in   Gibsons,  B.C.  Volume  10,   Number  6  February 9. 1956.  Provirtiial Library*  Serving ihe Growing  ...Sunshine-Coast   From   Squamish  'to Pender Harbour  ���i  Trumpeter swan  visits Hough farm  The Norman Hough iarm  had a visitor recently in the  shape of a trumpeter swan  with a six foot wing span. Mr/  Hough reports.  ���It landed in the poultry run  at about 1 p.m.; and remained  for about an hour 7and a half.  Apparently it was hungry because when Mel Hough spread  some wheat ��n the ground it  scooped it up hurriedly.  The  HOME  BURNS  Frank Schulstad's house on  Gower Point Hoad was 'totally  destroyed, when fire of. unknown origin broke out early  Sunday.  The fire was noticed by Mrs.  Schulstad "about 4' a.m.    She  was living in the femall cottage  a [short    distance    from , the'  v -ho����&.t _he-hah\l0 the*"] Cart-/  <    w*ig-it homei and from 'there  Mr.  Cartwright ran  to    Walt  Leigh's house  to ttirn  in the  ;alarmV y ������"'���.  The fire brigade was on the  job promptly but the fire had  got tc.o great a start. They v  had hoses connected and playing on the fire quickly but they  could not stop it.  Insurance is .  carried,,    Mr.  -    Schulstad says! There  was no  cine  in the house    when    the  fire broke out.  above picture reveals iis size.  It was taken by Mr. Hough.  The other birds on the farm  held conferences to see what  they cculd.do about the. intruder. The hens flocked together  at a distance and remained in  their huddle while the visitor  looked about. The geese after  a slight parley were more  friendly and fraternized in a  mildt way.  Cpl. Morrison of the RCMP  was on the scene to see if the  bird was.injured in any way.  He took along with him a  book containing information  on the bird and had quite a  session making  observations.  Eventually the trumpeter  swan had enough of civilization and took to the air again.  Fkehaiixbee  Present attitude cf the provincial authorities on tlie  Shoal Bay ' foreshore lease  sought by the-Gibsons ��� Resident .Loggers Association, is  regarded by the village commission as "passing the buck"  to the Village of Gibsons commissioners.  The issue arose when Fred  Holland,    loggers,    association  president appeared before the  commission   seeking   clarification    cf    the    correspondence  The letter sent to Mr. Holland and  the village   commission' in which government  officials ask that the. area involved 'be zoned was again read  along with the  commissioners,  reply which stated    the    land  area was   zoned and   that  on  previous  applications  no  zoning implications were involved  and  why  zoning   entered  the  discussion at this point,    w&s  puzzling  to  the     commission.  The reply to the, government  was sent on Jan. 25  and  no:  return reply has been received  Mr.  Burns explained  tihat  under   the  zoning  bylaw  passed in 1953   any    commercial  operation h\  existence    when  the zoning bylaw was passed  was allowed to continue such  operations under the bylaw so  long as the operation was not  expanded.  Mr. Holland explained that  the present indecision of government officials is working  a hardship on loggers who do *  not feel thoy can affoid to  commit themselves to logging ,  operations until the situation  is clarified. He wanted to see  some action on 'he .matter.  ���";-������ During discussion on road  costs and provincial government contributions towards  road construction at Tuesday  nights Village Commission  meeting, Robert Burns, village  clerk, estimated that the next  Federal government census  this year would show Gibsons  ^population at slightly above  the   1,200 mark  The .figure was used when  Mr: Burns explained that  -when the. village passed a certain census population figure  the village would not be in a  category on which gcvenment  assistance is granted.  Discussiori arose over the  possibility of black-topping of  .,-.Gower Point road. The chairman, Commissioner Ritchey  was instructed to visit officials  in Victoria to "see" what could  he done about it.  V A side walk will be constructed in front of Mr. B. *  JDang's Georgian Blocks and in  front of Wood's Hardware  store. The Commission ordered  permits jssufed to    cover    the  ower reaches  construction. Work will be  done by Toynbee Construction  Co.,   Ltd. V  Accounts totalling $925.85  were ordered paid. Of this  amount $4.49.60 was for roads,  $320.56 general expense, $66-  .88 for street lights and $98.81  for the  fire department.  Permits for an $8,000 five-  room dwelling, 29 by 40 feet  on South Fletcher Road fcr A.  Swanson; a $350 utility room  9x8 feet for W. Emerson and a  foiir-room. 24 by 24 foot home  for W.R. Sneddon on Franklin road were granted.  Mr. B.W.M. Bone was again  appointed auditor. It was moved by Commissioner Ballen-  .tine and seconded by Commissioner Crowhurst that the village clerk's salary be raised  $25 a month. This was passed.'  lanuary  P  Half  moon Day  B<  MV  s'i1   ��  Sechfelt ^vtlunteeK-^rkrf&rf^  will hold another building bee  on the Fire Hail on Sunday  Feb. 12, tarting at 9 a.m. Refreshments will be sered, Anyone* wishing to assist will be  welcomed.

RETURNS   TO GIBSONS  Mrs. Anna Wilander who  has been in Vancouver for several weeks has returned to her  home in Gibsons. She reports  haying an excellent time with  relatives during her stay in  Vancouver but adds she is glad  to be back again in  Gibsons.  eenage r s __.amen  rom  The response to last week's  editorial concerning a letter  about teen-agers has been surprising. Early in the week C'jie  letter was sent-in and the edi-v  tor placed it on the editorial  page. After" that page had been  run off along came the .,, remainder of'the'letters, five iri  number and-one of them signed by ,28   individuals.  The reader can pick up the  threads from here not forgetting to read the letter on  the editorial page.  Editor: What's with these  "teenagers" that they are looking for more to do. They can't  do ��� everything there is to  do now. From Sunday to  Thursday they should stay  home and do their' homework  and stuff like that, or don't  they have homes?  There are Girl Guide meetings, two Badminton Clubs,  and Teen Town and Boy'  Scouts, etc., meetings through  the week. On Saturday afternoon there is bowling and  Friday and Saturday nights  four different movies, also  swimming in the summertime.  I bet they never thought of  going to church or teaching  Sunday School on  Sundays.  Wilson Creek ��� has d arice's for  kids but the kids seem like  they^ act up and I bet if there  was ' a roller 7rihk or. recreational" place' you would heed  an armed guard to make the  kids stay inside them and behave. They'd smoke on, the way.  there and back, "anyway.'  That's just an excuse.  There's an orchestra,  too.  My parents didn't have any  of these things, not even a radio or T.V. parties, I guess  they had guts instead. ���  I always find the old folks  will help the young ones if  the young ones are doing anything worthwhile. They'd' sure  get more if , they had a little  respect for their elders.  , "Another Teenager"  P!S. It sure is funny that  the grown ups, don't Vget us. a  $20,000 rink and a $25,000  equipped recreational building.  Theyv are all rolling in wealth,  especialy our parents,' the  meanies. It is little enough for  us to expect, considering who  we are!  'Lord help us, I wish I had more  time I -  I-admit, it would be nice  to have; a roller rink; it would  be nice also to have the family Cadillac every night, stay  out as long as we wanted;  have a money tree; have  everyday a - sunnyday and  every night, moonlight; shall  we dream on?  For the studious person,  there is schoolwork; . for the  mechanical inclined, there are  innumerable machines; for the  musical, there are orchestras;  for the sportsman, there is bas  ketball, skating ski-ing arid  bowling; and there is all of  this for anyone and everyone!  If, and it is a prominent '"if",  one has any extra time there is  a variety of girls and a variety of Saturday nights (dances,  games, shows etc.)  "A Teenager"  Editor: Of all the things I  dislike seeing teenagers blamed for, a letter like that published last week is the worst.  Who  hasn't   anything  to    do?  Editor:  In reply to that letter from  "The teenagers", here are a  few facts and a little advice  from some real teenagers.  If there is a teenager around  here with nothing to do is he  or she bragging or complaining? There are so many things  a  teenager can do    alone    or  with a small group, that  arouses the interest of the  whole. If these seem small or  trivial it would- seem to us  he has had a little too much  adult- life and. won't be satisfied with teenage activities  anyway.  What happens if there is  adult enthusiasm? Adults.'.out  of the gcod of , their hearts  come out an(i sponsor a teenager's shindig, and the teenagers see how much they can  get away with while the sponsor is elsewhere. If the adult  guard is increased, the complaint, invariably, is'" "can't  they leave us be for even two  minutes?" or "a lot of old  biddies, waiting for us to do  something wrong."  It wasn't a very clever plea,  because any kid that wants  the help cf the adults could  start with, his parents, or the  parents of his friends. Quit  feeing sorry for yourselves,  use a bit of your own ingenuity. Unless you do. no matter  what the parents of the Peninsula do for you you won't  be happy unless you helped  make it so.  There are four teen clubs on  the Peninsula, at Wilson  Creek, Roberts Creek, Gibsons  and Port Mellon. Join the one  in your neighborhood. Get on  the ball! These clubs are sponsored- by adults. What*'else  would you like the parents  to do for you - maybe take  you by the hand?.  Another point we think is  quite important. What are your  ���grades in school, if you go?  If worse comes to> worse 'it  might be just as well for you  to spend a night with your  books.  We are not adults (questionable of  the  previous    writer)  nor are we out of school.  "Most of the teenagers".  Editor: The Sechelt Rod and  Gun Club feels they can comment on the letter "Teenage  Lament" in your recent editorial.  For over a year, we have  been inviting the Teenagers to  come to our Club. We have also set up facilities to instruct  and help them in the use of  firearms, and fishing tackle.  We are quite anxious to have  the Teenagers for a Jr. Club  within our Club and have a  number of times requested various Teenage Boys to come to  our Clubhouse and get started.  We have also asked for help  in building an indoor range,  outdoor range, and trap range  as these facilities are for the  nse of young people as well as  the older ones. But never have  we  seen any of them.  We hope and still hope that  the Teenagers will help xis  and we in turn help them, as  this is one of the primary objects of our organization. All  our time, and efforts towards -  building and maintaining these  facilities, and the conservation of our natural inheritance, ;  -��� fish and game, will have been  'in vain if we have been unable  to train or interest the future  generation.  William Rankin, Secretary  Editor: "Teenagers" are not  speaking for all the teenagers  on this Peninsula.  My children, spending all  the day with the others at  school, are glad to stay in after supper. Then when their  lessens are done and their  music and the chores done up,  they read:, sew, write, tinker  with inventions (the boys do)  listen to the radio and we play  games with them, 500, canasta,  scrabble.

To be frank about the CBC, we like it for what it is but  pot for all it does. Yet without it radio would be as bad as  ���television can be.  It is difficult for a huge organization like the CBC to  watch every small detail, such as announcers sticking  strictly to regulations. Any one having had a bout with  various people interpreting the letter and not the spirit of  regulations knows the intent of the above remark.  Must announcers with dead time on hand preceding a  sagn-off bring in a recorded symphony orchestra to play  Mve or six seconds before fading into the sign-off? The  scEsion of a symphony orchestra being on hand to fill in for  a few seconds is to say the least an extravaganza CBC reg-  sj&tions -could not possibly conceive. Would not a recorded  piano strumming be more acceptable,?  The problem of a theme for the Morning Devotions preceding the 8 a.m. news has always been a CBC marvel-  ife British Columbia some of Handel's' Water Music'is used,  probably the most deadly part of it when used continually.  ���Om the praires, Massenet's Meditation from Thais is��� used.

Canada's commercial airlines in 1953 averaged only  one accident every 737,795  revenue miles, only one death  every 43,509 paying passengers or every 1,103,954 pay-  load miles.  A Canadian population cf  more than 19 million and a  gross national product of $36  billion ten years from now are  foreseen by the Bank of Montreal in its January Business Review, just issued. This month's  ���review, entitled, "A Decade  Past: a. Decade Hence", takes  a look at developments' during  the past ten years and attempts  to outline the main features of  further growth.  Pointing ;ciut that the ...Canadian economy' "19.55,..-.model"  was very different from that  of ten years aigo the; review  notes ��� tha't since the- end of  World War II, the population  has jumped almost 30 percent,  "an increase equivalent to  five cities the size of Toronto,"  and the physical volume of  national output has risen. by  rrpre than a third.  A 'supplement accompanying  the review features an interesting chart which shows that,  by 1965, the population niay  be expected to increase by 22  per 'cent over last year, while  ^ps^V .na^on.Mi^rr^'uct ;:ih^iht|  rise by 38 percent. V  The B of M sees the almost  uninterrupted expansion in thei  annual volume of capital expenditure on new plant equip'  ment and housing as having  been the most dynamic force  behind Can a d a' s postwar  growth. Of the annual supply  of goods and services available  in Canada, "the proportion,  used for the creation of new  physical assets has risen from  11.4% in 1946 to a 1955 figure of 18.5, per cent." The natural resources that- Canada  posseses in relative abundanca,  the B of M states, "should con-'  tinue to provide opportunities for fruitful development."  The past ten years, the review continues, has seen the  relative ignificance of external trade diminish. It adds,  however, that this declining 7  trend may ncit continue at tlie;  same rate during the next  decade. The expected expansion in exports of minerals  and the tendency for overseas  countries to reduce their restrictions against impotrts from  dollar countries should benefit Canada's external trade in  tlie future.  Tracing the growth pt Canada's population    during   the ,  postwar period, the B of M observes  that the relative pros- ,  perity of the Canadian ecom-  omy has not only affected im? V  migrants at the rate of 117,000  a year, "it has    also   induced,  people to   marry   at a younger age to have children at an  earlier stage of marriage and V  to have an increasing number  of children per family." Since  1946, the number of births recorded in Canada had    risen *  SHIFTING    TIDES~  Shifting tide cf romance:  : Until 1952 June was the favored ^month for Canadian weddings. July took over that  year, held the place through  1953. last year the big month  was September with 15,272  marriage registrations.  Page Marie Antoinette  Cake or   bread:    Last year  Canadians spent    $156,000,000  on .bread and $107,000,000 on  cakes doughnuts, etc.  from 330,000 to 440,000 a year.  However, the review points  out "the very facts that have  brought about a rise in the  birthrate in recent years should  logically lead to a decline in  the birth-rate in the near future. The rising proportion, of  people now marrying before  age 20 implies a smaller proportion marrying in the 'over  20' group in a few years' time,  and the tendency to have children in the early years of  inarriage may mean that fewer children are born in later  years...";     '. -:  Moreover,,the marked economic resurgence in Western  Europe might well have its  effect upon the desire, of the  people there to emigrate to  Canada. "The rate of increase  in the Canadian population  could, therefore; be somewhat  less in the next ten years thai-  it., has been in the postwar  decade..- -y .-.  7   "Nevertheless,"   the:  review  states, "the changes that have  .taken place in; the������ past^hbld^ *  *impOTtan��l_n^^ . ffethe^  latter half of the next decade."  In the early 1960's the civilian  labour force may be expected  to grow at a considerably faster rate .as the children born  during the high . birthrate period of the late 1940's  begin entering the working age  groups.  "Where will these prospective new entrants find employment?", the B of M asks. Much  .qf the increase in the working.  force in the postwar period has  been absorbed in the provision  of services - financial , commercial, personal and government. In all likelihood the review . states, the' services sector will continue to absorb a  major propcxtion of the growing labour force.- "It may further be expected- that more  people will be working in the  resource industries, in manufacturing and in construction.  "Indeed, with the annual add-  tioh to the labor force promising to, be no greater in. tlie-next  five years than it lias since  1946, there niay well, be a relative shortage of labour until  the early 196'0's that would be  relieved only by a further  ���significant shift out of agriculture  int other  occupations..  "The achievements,   of    the  * * *  postwar; decade," the    review  concludes, "ftave labelledr, Can-,  aflaf'sM3 la��dV ctf m^��ttb&i-f' .til? leister-; ofy  growth and attractive oppor-* eight proprietor  ���tunity," and, all things considered, "there seems to. be good  reason to believe that in the  second postwar decade,  growth, with its attendant benefits and problems, will con-  inue to be the hallmark of the  Canadian  economy."

BY TONY GARGRAVE  I sent the following telegram to our local village council  last  week:  "Commissioners will be glad  tel learn that the village will  receive $11,552 in local government grants this year. This  is based on $16 per citizen."  These additional local gov-,  ernment grants will help a little, though I felt " that, with  those large surpluses the minister of finance announced,  more help should have been  given to our municipalities. I  certainly believe that some of  the millions in the surplus  revenue account should be  available t0 municipalities, especially the smaller villages  and improvement districts, as  a sort of revolving fund from  which these governments can  borrow at low cost, money for  local improvements.  *  *  *  Mr. Sommers, minister of  lands and forests, is in trouble  again. This time it is over the  Cassiar - Stewart read. This  road begins on the Alaska  Highway, at the B.C. - Yukon  border, and then proceeds almost directly sovith to the asbestos minning community cf  Cassiar. The road will then  wind its way southwards  through 300 miles of northern  B.C. towards the * salt water  port of Stewart just above  Prince Rupert.- This road has  been classified as a mine assistance road. Why, I don't know,  because wheri it is completed  it will be a major' highway in  ���'*.'*#  in the province.  Since it has been classified  as a mining highway it was  up to the minister of lands and  forests to place the contract.  He did not call fcr tenders but  gave oneV>f the large contracts  to Wells and Wade of Castle-  gar, the Minister's home town.  Last year Mr. Art Laing of  the Liberal party asked some  embarrasing questions ,\u-at>oi)t  the project. In answer the  . members were told that the  firm of Wells and Wade has  had no previous experiance  with government contracts.  Tne contract was let on a  cost plus basis and the government has already paid them  $500,000. Mr. Laing also unkindly asked whether the bookkeeper on the job was a Mr.  Loeblich Who was Mr. Sommers campaign manager in  the last general election. Tlie  government replied that a Mr.  Guides tea  Mrs. Marg*. Emerson was  hostess to the February general meeting of the L.A. to the  Guides and Brownies of Gibsons, Mrs. E. Sergant in the  chair.  The resignation of Mrs. D.  Benn as treasurer was regretfully accepted and Mrs. G.  Charman was elected to the  office. A vote* of thanks was  given Mrs. Benn for her work.  The main business was the  Valentine tea to be held in  the United Church Hall. Sat.  Feb. 11. from 2 to 4 p.m. at  which the Guides will be  hostesses.  Loeblich was on the job alright but "information (was)  not available" on his political  activity. . '  ' ���  This year the MLA's also  learned that an internal government report on this read  was in the hands of the department of lands and forests  which might cQntain criticism  of the job. A contracter on a  cost plus project has no incentive to do things efficiently because the more it costs the  more profit he gets. Surely  this is not a good; thing. The  minister must have seen this  report, but when Bruce Brown  (Liberal - Prince Rupert) and  Frank Calder (CCF - Atlin)  asked that this report be tabled in the house, Mr. Sommers  waved his hands and said,  "What report? I get all kinds  of reports."  *  * *  Well; that made everybody  pretty sore. Frank Calder said,  "I hope within a few months  the whole truth, will be known.  If it ever comes to light (that  there is a report) then he has  told a falsehood and he should  resign."  The members have since  learned that such a report was  made by Mr. Edgar A. Jamie-  son, a qualified engineer,.who  is also the Sergeant -at-Arms  in the -legislature. Mr. Jamie-  son was sitting on the floor of  the legislature when the minister made his evasive. a'ri-  swers. The whole matter has  now been referred; to a standing committee of the legislature.

Are teenagers becoming a  definite class that,must have,  the public handle them with  kid- gloves? It was net so many  years ago that I was in my  teens and I am sure that then  we were just considered as  kids growing up.  The teenagers of to-day are  under the impression the public  owes them somthing, such as  recreational organizations, roller rinks,  etc.  When I was in my teens we  played ball, had small dance  orchestras, formed our own  clubs, raised our own funds  and in general shifted for ourselves with the-help of a few  interested adults who liked to  see kids having fun but progressing socially as well.  Today it seems that, everything has to be handed to the  teenager.

Mr. Gargrave  asked the Minister: "Has the  Department of Highways been  able to make any progress as  to preventing further recurrences of the floods caused by  the overflowing of Mission and  Chapman Creeks? Also, has  the Government made any decision regarding compensation  for the flood victims?  I.O:O.F. Sunshine Coast  Lodge. No.76 meets Gibson's Legion Hall 2nd and  4th Friday each month.  The request for compensation was based upon the fact  that the floods were caused by  the collapse of a dam erected  by the department of highways  and the backing up ' of the  flood waters by a plugged public culvert. You will also be  aware that Chapman Creek  had been diverted from its  normal watercourse by the  dam/'  Mr. Gaglardi . replied that  the depatment was definitely  taking steps to prevent it happening again, as far as it is  possible. He said: "We have  made a thorough survey of the  situation to decide on the best  possible solution. On the other  question of compensation, the  Government is still studying  this matter. I am sorry I cannot be more explicit at the  present time but you will understand the difficulties surrounding this."  Mr. Gargrave announces he  will continue to press the government on this matter.

'Td like to give you a preview of some of the plans we  have for "In Reply" for the  weeks ahead, because I feel  you'll want to make a point  of hearing the programs we  have lined up.  "On Sunday, January 29,  my guest will be Davidson  Dunton, Chairman of the. CBC  Board of Governors, who will  answer some of the following  policy questions I've received.  'Is -the CBC dedicated to serving the majority of Canadian  listeners, or to catering to minorities en a proportional basis?'  -'To what extent is the CBC a  commercial organization?' -  'Is the CBC disinterested, in  private stations?'.- 'Does the  CBC regulate' and corripete  with private stations?'  "On Feb. 5 we returned to  program questions from our  Mail Bag. On February 12 and  19 we will present a discussion  with Johnny Wayne and Frank  Shuster, and Neil Leroy (vice-  president of Canadian Council  of Authors and Artists) on the  future of radio in Canada. In  these discussions we'll ask for  the opinions of representatives  of the Canadian talent field  on their reaction to working in  radio now that television is  here.  We'll try to apply these opinions to the future role of radio  in this country. On February  26 I hope to have more news  for our teenage audience on a  CBC plan to develep progams,  and that you will send me  your comments and questions  about any phase of CBC you'd  like to hear discussed on future broadcasts.-'  TV ins award  Gladys Batehelor of Sechelt  Beauty Salon attended the  Hair Dressers' convention recently in Vancouver, and demonstrated permanent waving  and hair tinting, along with a  number of others.  For her work, Gladys won  the Rayette award. , The engraved plaque, a golden beauty parlour worker, and it is  now on display in Sechelt  Beauty Salon.  were planning to take the  whole of the three eastern  provinces away from China.  He was filled with indignation  when he learned how his people were being humiliated he  at the unfairness of it all, and  resolve to join the army of  resistance.  There , was then no official  declaration of war, but many  Chinese showed deep resentment and there was considerable fighting. He left his home  and joined the Twenty-ninth  Army under Sung Cheh Yuan,  one of the first millitary lead-  , ers to resist the Japanese.  Wang fought against the  Japanese at Hsifengkow in  1933 and there received his  first wound1. His right leg was  badly injured, but after a few  weeks he recovered and was  nursing a deeper resentment  than ever. Though he and the  other Chinese soldiers fought  bravely, the skilled and well-  equipped enemy steadily encroached into Chinese territory. Wang could not conceal  This sence of shame.  *     *     *  On the night of July 7, 1937,  Wang was on  duty    with his  comrades    just    outside    the  great city of Peiping,.   which  had been taken by the Japanese. They were attacked, and  returned the fire, and the war  officially . began.    That    first  night    Wang    was  . wounded1  twice, but he fought courageously, and after a brief convalescence  he  rejoined his regiment. .-'-.������'  Slowly the V Chinese    army  was driven south,,  but under  Sung Chen Yuan they fought  with   determination,.'  and   in  February, 1938, they won the  fir^t of China's great victories  at Taierchwang,  and    proved  not  only , that., the    Chinese  could    fight,  but    that    they  could sometimes win victories  against overwhelming odds. At  Taierchwang, Wang was sever-  ly wounded. He lost cne leg,  the other was    injured,    and;  more -terrible still, he lost an  eye. For months he lay in the  hospital suffering and wondering if there was any    chance  ever again of helping his people! The thought which oppressed him most was that millions  of Chinese    scarcely    realized  that   their country was  being  torn apart limb from limb. If  he could walk again he might  help to wake them up.  SMALL  BOAT REPAIRS  PRAMS, DINGHYS BUILT  To Order  DM. Smith     Sechelt 14M  Then one day a man came  to the hospital and1 taught the  crippled soldiers how to make  crutches. The thought came to  Wang that he might walk freely again, and he made plans  for the future. His friends  were amazed when they heard  him, and asked: "How can 3-ou  travel with only one leg and  one eye?"  "I've got my mouth left."  he quickly replied'.  So, hobbling along on crutches, Wang went from place  to place telling his people the  story of Japanese atrocities  and aggresion.  In seven years he visited  eight provinces and spoke hundreds of times. His reputation  spread, and he delivered, addresses in schools, amusement  places, churches and    in    the  Coast News  Feb.  9   1956       7  open air - anywhere he could  get an audience.  He became well known  throughout China. In November, 1943, he was appointed  to an important position by  General Feng Yu Hsiang, and  the crippled country boy became a national hero destined  to play an important part in  the right for a free China.
