STRY'  'T  During the next five years nearly a quarter of a million dollars will be invested in the pulp and paper industry of this  province, so the 1956 issue of Facts about British Columbia's  Fulp and paper Industry records.  In 1956 about $85,275,000 will be expended. This expansion  Will improve the utilization of the forests of British  Columbia, especially in the coastal areas. It will create new  jobs and support new or larger permanent communities in the  mill areas, 1956 Facts adds.  At this point attention to an article on this page by Dr. G.  S- Allen, Dean of the U.B.C. Faculty of Forests. It is an article  well worth reading and was published in the monthly ILB.C.  Reports issued by tlie university.  -The article along with some interesting data from the 1956.  Facts publication contain sufficient information for the average  person to realize that British Columbia's pulp and paper industry is riding a tide which for the present does not appear to  show any signs of receding, even remotely.  For instance the 1956 facts outlines 32 basic products made  from wood products. They range from newsprint to facial tissues and from hardboard to kraft wrapping paper. To say that  32 items reveals an end in sight is being ultra-conservative.  Based on the products. already made from pulp, the possibilities appear endless. Now that woods previously wasted are being utilized the woods will get a closer inspection because a  great deal more of the growth can be utilized.  It is estimated, says 1956 Facts, that the pulp and.paper industry recovered approximately 490,000,000 fbm of wood which-  would otherwise have been wasted or put to poorer use. Seven  years ago there were no facilities for the utilization, of this  material. This recovery, says 1956 Facts, means nearly $40,-  000,000 of new wealth for British Columbia. To show the growth  of new wealth for British  Columbia.  To show the growth of production the booklet, 1956 Facts,  contains a table showing 1944 short ton production at 471,322 and  for 1955 a total of 1,407,561 short tons. This is an increase of  nearly one million tons in 15 years, due to increased mill output, new mills and a greater utilization of an increased availability of basic product.  What does all this mean to the Sunshine Coast? Your guess  is as good as any other and if you fail to guess that some of  that basic product is along this coastal area from Port Mellon  to Powell River, you have flunked an elementary question requiring an-elementary answer.  The arrival of greater electrical power resources should  have a place in your thinking, too.  Mental Health Week advice  The Canadian Mental Health  Association lists . ten. safety  signs for good mental health.  This is in contrast- to danger  signs with which health/ organizations usually, alert the  pnblic.  The safety! signs were formulated for Mental Health  "Week, ending May 5, by Dr.  George S. Stevenson, an  American colleague of Dr.  Clarence M. Hincks, founder  of the Canadian Mental Health  Association.  The main characteristics of  good mental health' are:-  1, A tolerant, easy-going  ���atatiifcu.de toward yourself as  well as others. .  2_ A realistic estimate of  3?our own abilities - neither  underestimating nor over estimating.  3  Self-respect.  4. Ability to take life's disappointments   in  stride.  5. Ability to give love and  consider the interests'of others.  6. Liking and trusting other  people   and   expecting   others  to feel the  same way    about  you.,  7. Feeling part-of a group  and having a sense of responsibility to your neighbors and  fellowmen.  8. Acceptance of your responsibilities and doing something about your problems as  they arise.  9. Ability to plan ahead, and  setting of realistic goals for  yourself.  10. Putting your best efforts  into what you do and getting  satisfaction out of doing it.  ebebthewl    dm :  Begonias are popular  Tisbesnms begonias    are   increasing in popularity as gar-  dsz. subjects year by year. .Although they can    be    started  from seeds. It is more practi-  . cal for home owners   to  use  ^takers. A.P.  Chan of  Central-  Experimental    Farm,    Canada  ;3_tep__rtraent    of    Agriculture,  says that by following a    few  basic rules, success can be as-  sored  because they    are    not  areal-jr   difficult    subjects    to  handle. ,  !_jhe tubers are roundish on  one side and the other is concave. The shoots arise from the  concave side so the tuber must  i*e planted with ,this side up.  The best way to jlant is to take  �� tuber and twist it into the  SaaJ. or moss until it is level  vzith the surface. It is a mistake to plant too deep.  5Sre best way to plant is to take  tubers is to use peat moss in  a Sat. After the tubers show  roots they can be potted1 in  s��2L During the starting period, no light is necessary but  ik will do no harm. As soon as  'Qte shoots begin to grow, they  should receive fairly bright  light, i.e. beside a window.  !��-xe tubers will start best at a  temperature of about 75 degrees. After they are  potted,  the temperature should be 50-  60 degrees F. for sturdy .plants.  After planting the tubers in  peat moss, a thorough watering is necessary. Then examine  the peat moss daily for moisture. When the peat is light in  colour, more water will be  needed. When watering, avoid  wetting the crown of the tuber because this is often the  cause of the start of diseases.  If the plants are intended  for planting out, they should  not be started before April 1st.  Starting too early results in  plants that are too big.

COAL STILL NEEDED  For "a long time to come,"  coal rather than atomic power  will remain the world's chief  source of energy, according to  a report published by the International Labor Organization.  The ILO report states that  it is generally agreed that  atomic energy will not be produced in substantial quantity,  in the immediate future and  that the increased demand for  energy will to a large extent,  "still have to be met from traditional sources."  BY BB_ CLS_ ALLEN  Bean, of ifa& Faculty of Forestry  Revolution on a grand scale  is going on in the .forests of  British Columbia- The forces of  revolt are many and they are  diverse in nature. They are  working against less-than-com-  plete utilization of tlie forest's ���  products, ���against the heavy  losses caused by fire, insects,  and decay, ���against incomplete or inefficient use of forest land,��� and against complacency respecting the wood  supply  of the future.  The forces are economic and  they are technological. They  are founded on common sense  and a healthy respect for the  renewable nature of the forest.  Because wood has increased in  value it has become economic  to use much more of the tree  than was possible previously;  more wood is taken off each  acre and much more txf it finds  its way into usable products.  And because accessible ripe  timber is no longer easily  available in the next valley,  many operators as well as-the  Crown are applying their energies to the growing of new  .crops as well as to harvesting  of the old timber provided by  nature. In short, they are turning more and more to the land  as the real forest resourse,���  land that properly managed  can yield successive crops of  wood and other valuable "products'* such as wildlife and  fish, recreation and water, and  protection   against flood    and  erosion.  *     *     *  Forest    conservation     today  has many facets,���more  efficient and more suitable harvest- \  ing of mature timber, elimina-7  tion of waste in the woods and j  in the mills, more valuable use ���  of the products of the   forest,:  new products, extended life of;  wood through the   application-;  of preservatives, reduction    o_|  losses from fire and other dam-f  aging influences,. quicker    re-s  generation  of the new forest,;'  better; new  forests  that    wili$_  produce a maximum of    raw  material, stabilization  of markets and development oi new :  markets so that the beneficial ������  trends of past years    can   be  maintained. These are not all 7  : part of "forestry" but they are ;  matters vitally   important    to  forestry and forest y censer va- ';  tion. >  One example may be cited.  The development of log barkers and chippers in recent years ���{  has made possible  the use of ';  formerly unnsed   small    logs,y  chuhckSx and sawmill and ply- -  wood-plant refuse. The annual  equivalent of this in standing  timber volume is oyer ���' one-  third billion board feet or a  volume that might be logged  for some 7000 acres of good mature forest. Because low quality and small material can now  be removed economically from  the forest, the logged area is  cleaner and often, does not require slash burning; this in  turn often means quicker seed-  ing-in of the land and a new  forest on the ground several  years earlier, and because of  the forest's 'increased value,  more attention can and must  be paid to protecting it from  fire and insects.  *      * ���   *  This chain of relationships  extends to the ultimate market for the product. Only by  constant attention to sales and  market extension can the product be sold ~to permit of this  closer utilization and the benefits that reach.back to the forest. Forest conservation thus  embraces selling, plus efficient  manufacture, plus research and  development, plus careful and  efficient harvest, plus the best  of protection, plus quick establishment of the new forest so  that effective use of the land  is made.  The University's role in forestry is a unique one,���to provide in part the technical, professional and managerial staffs  of government services and industry. Some will-be graduates  in Commerce, Economics,  Chemistry,, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering,'  some will be graduates who  have not specialized to any  great extent,���-but va relatively  large number will be graduates in Forestry or Forest Engineering-. These are the men  who will do the technical  work in the forest,���plan and  lay out the cutting operations,  devise better methods of harvest and reforestation for the  many conditions that exist ��� in  the province, plan and carry  out protection operations, and  make studies in the 'constant  search for new knowledge that  will aid the forest manager  in his practical duties. In  short, the -forester on the  ground will be concerned with  all aspects of harvesting, reproducing, and protecting the  forest. He may also find a res- '  ponsible place in manufacture  and' in selling because of  his basic understanding of  wood and its properties.  In view of the wide variety  of responsibilities and duties  that are the forester's, his  training is an important mat  ter. Traditionally, the world  over, he is given a good grounding in the sciences that underlie the forestry practices and  techniques covered byi the professional subjects. In more recent years, however, the need  for an understanding of economics and business principles  and for facility with his  mother language, has resulted  in the addition to the curriculum of economics, accounting,  business administration, and  more seminars and Engli'sh.  At the same time attention has  been given to subjects such as  weather and climate, genetics,  and plant physiology, and opportunity, has been afforded  for some electives in the sciences, economics, commerce,  and the  humanities.  We might c.sk if less time  should be spent on the nonprofessional subjects and more  time on the professional.  This is not easily answered except to say that a great need  exists today for men who have  not only professional ability  but also a potential to rise to  administrative and executive  respnsibilities, in which positions they can do much to promote better forest conservation. At tlie same time, scientists and engineers and technical foresters will be heeded in  large numbers at various levels of responsibility to carry  out the interesting and important tasks that lie ahead/many  of which require them to deal  with  and work  with  people.  -There is a place for almost  every young man of average  intelligence who has.or develops a keen interest in the for  est or in sdme aspect to it. One  of our immediate problems is  that too few. of. our young  men are entering the profession  and the vast program that lies-  ahead may be forced to advance slowly because of a  lack of trained men. This is  true of other professions also,  but in a region whose economy is firmly tied to the forest and the forest industry,  the shortage of foresters is  likely to be of very great concern. Steps have been and  are being taken to attract  TOore men to the profession.  We are" hopeful that they will  help solve this vital problem  of providing the professional  manpower that is needed for  forest conservation in British  Columbia during the coming  decades.

In  the Middle Ages, we are told  that the scallop shell was a  symbol of piety. Christian pilgrims on their way to a shrine  wore it in their hats.     '  Pilgrims travelling through  France "to worship at the shrine  of St. Jacques (St. James) in  ���Spain were-* - such . a common  sjght, the French people nicknamed the scallop Coquille St.  Jacques. .  Today if you ask for" Co-  quilles 'St. Jacques in a Pari-  sienne restaurant, you would  be served with scallops iri a  delicious sauce, arranged in  deep scallop shells. This dish  is a culinary as well as artistic triumph. The home economists of Canada's Department  pf Fisheries have supplied easy  directions for making one version of it.

Wipe scallops with a damp  cloth and if large, slice. Scald  milk and add scallops. Poach  scallopsat simmering temperature for about 5 minutes or  until they lose their watery  look and are milk-white to  their centres. Drain but save  milk. Make a.white sauce by  blending flour, melted butter .  and salt and stirring in the  heated   milk gradually.  When,thickened, stir a-little '  of the hot sauce into the beaten egg yolks, and then add  yolk's to the sauce. Add lemon juice and grated lemon  rind and stir over hot water a  minute or two longer. Add  scallops and spoon into buttered  scallop shells or indivi-  vidual ramekins. Top with buttered crumbs and brown  crumbs lightly under the broiler. Serve hot. Makes 4-6 servings.  Many people find it convenient to make a casserole dish  early in the day,. store it in  the refrigerator and then pop  it into the oven half an hour  or so before dinner is to be  served. Whether you adopt this  practice or not, here is a recipe  for an energy-saving casserole  which is endorsed by the home  economists of Canada's Department of Fisheries. It is  called the Easy Casserole a��d  it is easy - easy on the budget,  easy to make and serve, but  best c_! all, easy to enjoy.  Easy Casserole  1 package of frozen peas or  2 cups of canned peas  2 (Vz pound) cans pink salmon  or tuna -   .  Wz cups cooked rice  1 (lOoz) can of    cream    of  celery soup  Vz cup dry bread crumbs  2 tablespoons melted butter.  If using frozen peas,    thaw  just before using with boiling  water and drain.    Do not pre-  cook. Drain and flake canned  fish. If using salmon save the  liquid. Place half of the cooked rice in the    bottom    of    a  greased 2-quart casserole. Add  in three layers the peas followed by   the canned fish and remainder of the rice. Dilute the  cream of celery soup with the  salmon liquid, if using salmon,  or with Vz cup of milk- if using  tuna. Spread evenly over contents  of casserole.  Top    with  bread crumbs mixed with melted butter. Bake in  a. moderate oven at 375    degrees    F.  for about 30 minutes or until  the  crumbs   are browned and  the contents  of  the   casserole  are bubbling hot. (If the casserole has been stored at refrigerator    temperature,    warm    at  room  temperature   for   a   few  minutes before placing in preheated oven, and allow a little  extra  cooking time;) Makes 6  servings.

The book  was entitled "Consultation  Room" and revealed how a  wise and extremely sympathetic doctor felt about the thousands of troubled people who,  during those years, had sought  his advice. One must have patience, he insisted, even with  people whose troubles seem  imaginary. There is a saying  that a lawyer sees the worst  side of a man; a clergyman the  best, but a doctor sees the real  man; no doubt there is much  truth in this.  He said that often, when listening to a sufferer from a dis  ease such as cancer, he would  be deeply moved, in spite of  the fact that he had been hear-  WE'VE OPENED  VIC'S COFFEE BAR  Davis Bay  Phone Sechelt 5X  E.

Just to know that the  patient had suffered so. much  and would continue to suffer,  made him sympathetic.. After  that person left bis room another would come in whose ailment seemed trivial and superficial; hardly worth bothering,  about.  "My first impulse," said Dr.  Loomis, "is always to say to  such a person: "Your trouble  is trifling and petty. A person  has just left this room whose  malady is 10, 20 times as great  as yours. You are making a  mountain out of a mole hill."  The doctor goes on to say,  however, that it is a mistake  to make people feel you despise  them. After all, their trouble  is very real and you cannot  help them by holding them up  to ridicule. Even if it is only a  sore toe,' or something less  painful, it clouds their whole  sky. The wise thing to do is to  listen patiently and attentively and by tact enable them.to  get over it. Whatever you do -  don't snub them.  This is good advice. When  people are distressed, even if  it seems frivolous, they want  to tell their story. If they have  their say and talk themselves  out, they may realize they are  making much ado about nothing, but it is better to allow  them to arrive at that conclusion themselves. Dr. Ambrose  Sheppard of Glasgow, one of  the great preachers of last  century, "Svas filled with self-  reproach in his old age because he had not "been more  patient with people who bored:  him; he felt he had not been a  good listener.. .y  In a magazine article on  good, salesmanship, the writer  insisted it was necessary that  the salesman should train himself in the art of listening.  "You don't .win the confidence  and goodwill of prospective  buyers by talking them down,"  he said. "If you do that, they  resent" your aggressiveness; after all, conversation isn't a,  one-way  street."'  A businessman went on a  trip to England and returned  to his family after an absence  x of four months. As> he approached home, his six-year-  old boy shouted from the verandah: "Daddy, I'm writing  with ink now." Lots of more  important things had happened in four months, but to that  youngster, the world-shaking  event was that he had graduated to a place-where he could  write with ink. That wise business man appeared astonished  and said to the youngster:  "That's wonderful, son; I want  you to tell me all about it."  It takes a genuinely wise  head and a' kind heart to listen-to other people's woes, but  it is well worth doing, and  there is scriptural warrant for  it: The prophet Ezekiel was distressed and bitter when he  saw the idolatries of his fellow-  countrymen during their exile, but he wanted to help them  as well as rebuke them, and  he tells iis how he did it. "I  sat where they sat," he wrote.  He listened to them and got  their point of view, and. only  then was he in a position '���* to  help them. i  Dr. G.H. Morrison points Out  that although Jesus became indignant, we never find him  ridiculing anybody*. He knew  what was in man and that  knowledge filled him with  compassion, even for the most  sinful. When Paul wrote to the  Philippian Christians he knew  how sound was this advice:  "Let this mind be in you which  was also in Christ Jesus." It  is easy to raise a laugh at people and sneer at their weaknesses, but it is a dangerous thing  to do; it degrades others and  does harm to the man who indulges in it. The mind of Christ  was never  scornful.  Here is the significance of  the incarnation; that Jesus became the Son of Man, and of  him it truly be said: "He sat  where they sat." Wherefor in  all things it behoved Him to be  made like unto his brethren  that He might be merciful and  faithful highpriest."  Today's quotation is from  the Book of Ezekiel: I sat  where they sat.  BY  PHYLLIS  M.  HODGSON  Mrs/ John Smith of    Gypsy  Towers was weekend guest of  the Syd.Smales.  Mrs. R.J.

FRUIT  The fruit industry contributes some $20,000,000 a year  to British Columbia's economy.  Some 200,000 tons of tree-  ��� fruits are produced annually.  Of this, apples cbmprise about  80 percent.  Sechali  Roberts  Creek 8      Coast  News  May  3  1956  BY  CHUCK  TOMPKINS  The need for a community  ball park in. Gibsons is growing steadily with the only solution for this year being the  High-school grounds.  The school board so far has  been very lenient with the use  of these grounds and I am  sure that all the participants  using them appreciate  it.  This year with the little  league operating at full blast  we must have a good park for  the spectators as well as the  placers.  I think that the school board  has done enough in allowing  the teams to use the grounds  and that it should t5e up to the  players of each team to get  these  grounds  in shape.  There are three teams in  Gibsons and I do not think  that the school board would object to the members of these  teams working on the field as  long as the work is done for  the betterment of the grounds  and that the board knows what  is being done.  A few rakes, shovels, another set of bleachers some  dugouts that can be moved at  the end of the season and you  will have as good a field as'  there  is on the Peninsula.  The Vancouver Mounties are  having a tough time of it and  it still boils down to not  enough pitching and injured  players. Help is supposedly in  sight when the parent Baltimore Orioles have to cut down  on their roster in a few weeks.  If the Mounties can win a  few in the next three week I  still claim they will finish the  season in the first division.  Tribute to a real sportsman:  George Agar, the tremendous  playing coach of the Allan  Cup champion Vernon Canadians, at 37 is so crippled, with  arthritus that it is an effort  for him to lace his skates, but  he is the leader all the way  and never lets up.  "I'll be mad to put it mildly if Mr. Bennett calls an election this year" said Tony Gargrave,   M.L.A.  He said that he had squared away all his constituency  work for the year and hoped  to put the summer in quietly  at Powell River working for  Northern Construction.  "Frankly I'm sick of meetings and politics" he said.  "And besides I've got a hunting and fishing trip all lined  up for the fall and if we are  thrown into a premature election I'll have to go fishing for  votes  instead."  "However the Premier is  making unmistakable noises  which sound like an election.  Free tolls and free taxes,  that is certainly, election stuff.  Only Social Credit * could  think of a plan where the  Provincial government offers  to pay our municipal taxes. I  wish they would pay my income tax", he  said.  Mr. Gargrave held his last  meeting of his legislative reporting trip at Bowen Island  Thursday April 26. He has  traveled three thousand miles  and spoken to seventeen meetings in six weeks. "I'm going  back to work to get a rest" he  said.  At conf  conference  Rev. and Mrs. M.T. Stronstad  returned Saturday from attending the 26 annual provincial conference of the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada,  in  Vancouver.  While, there, they attended  the annual ordination service  when four men were ordained  into the full time ministry.  They also attended the graduation exercises of British Columbia Bible Institute in  Georgia Auditorium, where  21 young men and women re-  cieved their diplomas, after  completing a three years  course in theology.  M & W store  is purchased  Mr. and Mrs. D.A. Donaghan  of Roberts Creek, recently  from Calgary, Alta., have purchased the M & W Store at  Roberts Creek, and will take  it over on a cash and carry  basis May 15.  Mr. Donaghan,' whose business was writing for financial  publications before coming to  the coast, and Mrs. Donaghan,  who for years was with McLean-Hunter publications, have  folleh in love with this country. They purchased a home  on the Lower Road, just east  of Roberts Creek.  John Matthews, who with  Keith Wright, took over the  store in Roberts Creek from  E. Shaw in June, 1949, is going into temprary retirement,  and has no definate plans for  the future.  John and Keith brought the  store a long way in their seven years, and modernized it  considerably. Dick Kennett,  who has been with the M & W  since he left the Four-X bread  run, will be staying on with  the Donaghans.  DANCE  To  Canadian  All  Stars  SAT.
