In ordinary everyday affairs they seldom think  Religiously but when a death occurs in their circle of intimates  ;they ask questions about God or turn to Him for comfort and  help.  It is a noteworthy fact that many attend funeral services who  aegject regular attendance at Church. They act in reverse to  .ihe words of Jesus who said/'God is not a God of the dead but  of the living". In so doing they express ��� perhaps unconsciously ��� that the Christian Church can only minister to them under the shadow of death, and has little to do with the actualities  ��f daily living.  Easter is an appropriate *time to make; the emphatic statement that this attitude is a mistaken one. It is true that Christianity is concerned about death, but only as an incident --necessary its true - in the development of life. This for the Christian"  is not an abstract doctrine but the supreme revelation which  comes from Jesus, in the life He lived on earth; His death and  resurrection; in which the "more abundant life", of which He  spoke prevailed.  Peter, preaching to the assembled multitude, shortly after  the death of Jesus, in what has been called the first Christian  sermon, made the dramatic statement "death could not hold  Him". His disciples knew beyond a doubt that He was alive  because they felt the power of their Risen Lord in their midst  as He had promised. They knew now that His life was of such  a nature that the immortal spark could not be quenched by  death. !  "In Him was life" and the secret of real living; a gospel of  good news, of light and liberty: Man is not an animated corpse,  tout a Living: Spirit; the spirit possesses the-body and not the  averse. Change and decay are transformation, and the Ulti-  mate is not dead matter^ but a Living Spirit, Whom Jesus revealed as Our Father.  Tlie Christian experience leads to more life and fuller and is  ihe eternal youth of humanity. Chas. Kingsley had inscribed .  ��n the tombstone of his wife the Latin words meaning "We  loved...we lovc.we shall love", and.Julian Grenfell a soldier  in the. First World War wrote a stirring poem entitled, "Into  Battle", in which these beautiful but significant lines are found:  And life is color and warmth and light  i   And a striving evermore for these".  So Jesus reveals Life for-us in the   colours  of  God's   Glory  around us; in'the' warmth of His Love'through our intimate relationships, and the light of His Truth within, us. This is the  glad message of Easter - "eternal and'yet ever new"  As Browning ends his poem "Easter Day"  "But Easter Day breaks!  But Christ rises! /*  Mercy'Every way Is infinite -  And who can say?"  No Shortage here  Nearly 40 applications from  all parts of Canada have been  seceived- for the post of executive secretary for British  Columbia's centennial celebrations in 1958.  Final applications were in  the hands of the province's  Centennial Committee March  24 and announcement of the.  successful applicant is expected to be made in April according to L.J. Wallace, Victoria,  chairman of the centennial  committee.  Mr. Wallace also announced  the committee had authorized  the preparation of an official  Mstory of British Columbia to  cover the 100 year period  since the province was organ-  feed.  Commissioned     to    prepare  the history is    Dr.    Margaret  Ormsby, of the Department of  History  at   the  University   of  British  Columbia.    The publication is to be available during the centennial year and is  expected  to form   an     impor- .  tont part  of the  libraries   -of  educational and  other institutions   of   the    province.     The  publication will go on sale to  tine public as soon    as    it    is  fflompleted. ��  The committee has also ar-  ieanged with the Motor Licence  Department   of    the     govern  ment for the issuance of a special centennial year licence  plate which will have gold  lettering on a green ^background and be appropriately  worded to mark it as a centennial year-issue.

S��x___~iz_e CJoastV  Lodge No.76 meets Gib-~  son's Legism Ha31 2nd sad-  4ti_ Fri<fa_r each -month.  BY   PHYLLIS  M.   HODGSON  Less than five     years    ago  there was a sound - of- revelry  in  Gibsons,  bands  were  play-  : ing, flags flying, whistles tooting and    strong    man     Doug  y Hepburn    himself    was...  per-  i forming7,his   feats  of  strength  on the Kinsmen  playground.  Remember the cause of all  this merriment' and joy? It  was the event of the Black Ball  Ferry coining into: Gibsons.  LongV before the scheduled  hour of arrival the wharf was  jam packed .with people impatiently awaiting the- new  method of transportation- the  Black Ball Ferry Quillyaute.  lyaute.  A great cheer went up as  she came in sight, looking  beautiful and majestic. The  band.struck up the catchy and  appropriate tune of the day  "Here comes the Black Ball  Ferry". An armada of little  boats decked with flags and  whistles went out to welcome  and; escort her into the dock.  To one of our oldest citizens  fell the honor of cutting the  ribbon, and the dignitaries and  guests of honor stepped ashore.  *     * - - *  History was made. Overnight  we appeared to change from a  sleepy little coastal village into a fast growing community,  tasting the advantages of a  larger community -- and .inci-  dently - some of its headaches.  The progress w a_s overwhelming, in a short while the  Quillyaute was replaced by a  bigger and  better ferries.  With the event of the Black-  Ball ferry coming to Gibsons,  our way of life changed, w'e  now measure time by referring to "Before the Black Ball  Ferry" or "After the Black Ball  Ferry". True, it brought many  advantages but my thoughts  turn with nostalgia to the days  when the old Machigonne was  our means of transportation.  The Machigonne was a con-  veted naval Fairmile of the  t war days. There was nothing  glamorous or even mildly  beautiful about her, but I  loved her. There was an atmosphere of stability and  friendliness aboard the Machigonne, and there was always  an air of excitment in climbing the gangplank - excitement that is entirely lacking  4n merely driving or walking  across a ramp.  *      *    . *  She carried approximately  200 passengers, in summer  time these 200 made a mad  scramble to grab one of the  50 or so outilde chairs available. It was a case of every  man far himself, and those  Who lost in" the scramble,  scattered themselves around,  sitting on every available inch  of deck, even using the water  buckets as seats. The overflow usually made for the  snack bar.  In the winter the scene was*  different, . with everybody  crowding into the small  lounge, children tearing around  falling over parcels 'and tired  outstreched feet Ihe more  athletic type swinging'-on the  deck beams with the ease and  the grace of young monkeys.  The old Machigonne was always crowded, with always  the smell of oil from the engine room mingling with the  smell of greasy. hamburgers,  burnt bacon arid rancid coffee  arising from the^snack bar in  the bowels of the ship; but  how good those hamburgers  and coffee' tasted.  Travelling on a holiday  weekend was something to remember. With everybody packed in like saradines in a can,  the trip was usually enlivened  by a few jolly loggers, celebrating their return to civilization after perhaps six months  or so in the woods.   ������  E DAYS���  It was always exciting to approach Gibsons, everybody  gathering together their children amd their parcels and lining up on deck, eager to go  ashore.  The lineup frequently caused an alarming list to starboard, but nobody worried  about it, everybody, was happy.  The tie . lines were thrown  for anyone on the wharf j to  catch and fasten, and there  were usually a few small boys  eager to do this important job,  but as there was no one officially in charge at the wharf, the  crew of the Machigonne were  well practiced in lassoing the  cleat from tlie deck, just to be  prepared in the event of no  one being on hand to catch it.  Then came the passengers staggering down the gangplank  each- with a "tired but happy  to be home" sort of; look.        -  ���  ' y*     * ���    *  Staggering is no understatement, because everybody  appeared to be laden down  like pack horses - usually a  parcel clutched under each  arm, a shopping bag in each  hand, and in many cases a bottle in each pocket. Strangely  enough, the docking always  seemed to coincide with either  a high or a low tide, and even  without a load of baggage, one  needed the agility of a mountain goat to navigate the gangplank, and still keep their  feet.  With the arrival of the  Black Ball ferry all this changed. The passengers nonchalantly get on the bus and  drive off -. it is just another,  bus drive -- there' is none of  that eager anticipation of docking as in the days of the old  ��� Machigonne before progress  marched in.  Standing at my window,  one day almost five years ago,  watching the Machigonne make'  its last trip out of Gibsons, I  felt, as many others must have  felt - ��fe though we had lost an,  old friend.

Harris in the first case of its  kind ever to be tried in B.C.  The men appeared before  Magistrate Harris.  '  Fined were Douglas and  Norman Hope of Refuge Cove.  Appearing for accused was D.  Silvers of Vancouver with J.  S.P. Johnson acting for the  Crown.  The case was looked upon  a "test case" under the Forest  Act. A representative of the  Gulf Log Salvage, a co-operative association of firms in the  logging industry, attended the  case to hear the outcome.  The Hopes accepted salvage ,  logs     from    licensed     beachcombers on the basis of handling  the   logs   for  the  beachcombers   on    an    assignment.  They paid beachcombers   $15  per 1000 board feet on delivery  of the logs, and were, to pay the  balance to-the' beachcombers  after the logs were sold. The  monies paid the beachcombers  were monthly in the form of  credit on store accounts with  the Hopes. *  Silvers told court action of  accused was legal as they were  only handling assignment of  ' monies and assisting the beachcombers. Johnson, as Crown  Counsel, said the Hopes were  handling the logs in the manner of a secondary receiving  station, and were accepting  delivery of logs contrary to  the Forest Act.  Under the act the only one  that can accept salvaged logs  at present is the Gulf Log  Salvage. The act provides for  primary (Gulf Log Salvage)  and secondary receiving stations, but as yet there has not  been licences issued for secondary receiving stations.  Under the relatively new  legislation, beachcombers are  issued permits at a cost of $50  the first year and $10 renewal  fee each year. They are permitted to' salvage1 logs in outside waters but not on privately leased property. Once  the logs are' salvaged the  beachcomber must turn then-  over to Gulf Log Salvage. Although it is illegal for beachcombers to turn them over to  any other receiving station, it  is unlikely that beachcombers  involved in the Hope case will  be prosecuted.  After turning the logs over  to Gulf Log Salvage, the .  beachcomber then receives  55% of the value of the logs,  both marked and unmarked.  If marked, the owners receive  the other 35%. If unmarked  the money goes into a claims  fund for unmarked logs which  is ultimately returned to the  industry.  Almost 500 people were successfully traced last year  through the missing persons  bureau cf ythe Canadian Red  Cross Society.  ��� ��^���gM_tKW��lHf->B_JWHPi.lM[mJ���f|  When you shop say you saw  it in The Coast News.  "Even though it's Easter,  we've-* got work to do!'" says  Easter-Bunny *June Sampson;  and Connie Deverell knows  she's not fooling.: These two  dancers work every Sunday on  CBC Television's weekly variety "Showtime".  The sixth annual Labour  Management Safety corifer-  ance held recently saw a  "severe accident" in the above  industry. It occurred in the  Embassy ballroom, Vancouver,  with First Aid teams from  nine pulp and paper making  plants in attendance. A man  was injured by a fork - lift  truck, also the. driver to a  slight degree. The First Aid  team taking first place was  Harmac, second place, Elk  Falls Co. and third place,  Howe Sound Pulp.  The Howe Sound representatives were Lorne Gregory,  captain, (Machine room); -Keri  Crosby, (assistant captain):  John Bennet and Herb Newman. Coach, Peter Madison  and assistant. coach, Cliff  Mahlman. .  On the Thursday morning a  progress report by R.M. Cooper of Powell River Co. showed  that "measured by practically  every  yardstick our ac-.  cident record in 1955 was riot  as good as in 1954". This he  proved by showing severity  and frequency ratings and although s e v e r i t y decreased  sligthly, frequency and lost  time accidents both, increased  over 50%   from   1954.  "We have slipped, badly in  our accident prevention work.  Our performance is the worst  in several years. The remedy  is in our own hands. Safety;  begins with the man at the  machine, but it doesn't > end  there, as individuals you have  a duty to work safely to protect others.as well as yourself.  The foreman's safty obligation  is to see, that the men working  for him understand and follow established safety practices," he said.  A tour was made through  the new W.C.B7 Rehabilitation  ���centre, where .delegates witnessed all the specialized treatments devised to assist in the,  recovery of workers.  That evening Mr. Burke, 39  Shears president of the LB. of  P.S. and Paper Mill Workers  addressed delegates and said: '  "If Unions are to have permanency they must not rely entirely on more wage machines:  must become so safety conscious thiat it is part of our  every day life. Unions must  also place Safety First," he  claimed.  At the presentation ceremonies Canadian Pulp and  Paper Trophy went to Crown  Zellerbach - Ocean Falls, for'  the lowest frequency rate in  1954 and the Safest Converter plant shield^ went to St.  Regis Paper Co. Ltd., - Vancouver, this company, has won  the award 4 years in succession. ��� ���.-. '   ".-,'.'  Delegates' also received  pointers ori assignment safety  by means of a very instructive  movie taken in7a sawmill by  the W.C.B., also a melodrama  in which public relations, good  employment practices, indue*  tion of new employees arid  their aspects of safety were  demonstrated.

There were many problems  which had to be overcome.  .-Foremost was that of-..casting.  The Director, Mr. Farhcombe  spent considerable time in trying out students to find those  best suited to ��� the characters.;  Stage presence, attitude, cooperation, and ability were  taken into consideration in  each case. > ���  yThe next problem was ...that  oftVeach^student developing his  rol^/'Much time was*spent by  own part or mellowing intcyhis  ea<?h student in,. memoming  lines, delivering them in the  right manner, and perfecting  stage movements.  ���Transportation .problems  arose. As the time alloted  7byy classV periods was not  enough, evening practices became/necessary to make suit:  able progress. Of those taking  part, ihanywere from Sechelt,  Roberts Creek and - Hopkins  Landing, making it" difficult  for students to attend rehearsals. Fortunately', most were  able id stay with friends in. Gibsons.   ���."     ' \y'- , .' ;'..."'-'-;-Vy  As for other problems, both  students and teachers have offered help in stage. lighting,  ccsturning, making programs  and in advertising, relieving  some of the strain from Mr.  Farncombe and the cast.  With the deadline approaching, rehearsals have become  more intense, but the cast is  enjoying every bit of it. Their  only hope is that the audience  will enjoy it 6n opening night  as much as they have in/the  last few w-2e'_..   .  IT TAKES ALL SORTS  Botanists say that flowers  do best when there is variety in  the garden. Flowers of the  type do not get on well to-  * gether; different kinds stimulate each other. People are  like that, while we complaih  that there is variety ��� among  people, yet it is the spice of  life and it would be a queer,  uninteresting world if there  was too much sameness; even  in the same families, it is a  good thing to have differences  in temperament and disposition. We hear a good deal about  ''family likenessi'; hut the  thing that interests me is the  amount of "family unlike-  ness." Looking at some children in a family, it is hard to  believe they had the same parents.  *     *     *  It" is better- for 8all, of us to  recognize the fundamental differences, among us and to live  and let live. All the tyrants of  ���history have been men - and  women - who wanted everybody to think and. act as they  did'. It takes all sorts of people  to make a world and intolerance is a -foolish and vicious  quality.  When - Jesus chose his disciples they were totally different types; John, Peter,  Philip, Thomas, and! the others  all had their characteristics  and were frequently at variance with each other. They  were alike in their devotion  to Jesus, but that ��� was about  the only thing they had in  coramon.    *'  We have a good illustration  .of the need for toleration  in7  this Old Testament, story: The  armies of Israel and the Phil- ,  istine wei"e encamped opposite  each other, yet    neither    was  prepared for an attack. There  was in ancient times what appears toV us 7a strange custom  7:. by which  battles were  sometimes decided by  a duel    between two champions. This was  the situation as the armies yofy  Israel and Philistia' faced each  ���'. Ottiefey;--''     V^-V . .'��� .:;T#V V ."' .   '^yy.  Th]e/Philistine champion Was  the giant Goliath^ yand Israel  had ho warrior to . match  against him. For days the arrogant gia!nt paraded before,  the Israelites, jibing them and'  1 taunting them for their cowardice. But who was there  among them to face such a  monster? It was a humiliating  situation, but the facts had to  be faced, and there was no  man in Israel, not even King  Saul, big though he was, who  appeared to have a ghost of a  chance. y  y Then came young David,  fresh from the hills around  Bethlehem, where he had been  tending his father's flocks.  David came to visit his broth-  , ers and quickly, sensed tlie situation. He offered to fight the  giant Goliath. He    was    little  more than a boy, but he was  eager, fearless, and confident.  * At first King Saul did not  take the young volunteer seri-  iusly. He scarcely welcomed  the suggestion. But when he  was    convinced    that     David  ��� wanted to meet Goliath, he  gave his consent. Saul had  only one idea of a soldier's  battle - that equipment, courage, and skill determined the  outcome.' Saul would have  agreed with the saying Napoleon quoted many centuries  later: "God is on the' side of  the heviest .battalions." Be-  leiving that,. Saul was determined that David should have  the best possible equipment.  He .sent for his own heavy  suit pf armor; a coat of mail,  a helmet of brass, and the  heavy sword he wag accustomed to wield. The shepherd'  lad was probably too shy: to  protest^ but when the armor  was placed upon him, he  knew   it was  nothing but  an  .; encumberance. It did not fit  him: It impeded his movements. It would have been all  right for a big man like King  Saul, but for David it was a  hinderance. "I cannot go with  these", he said, "For I have,  hot proved them."

Clad in his  shepherds dress, with five  smooth stones and the sling he  knew how to use, he "went  forth to meet the haughty  Goliath. .  He brought the giant to the  ground by a stone slung into  the forehead, and when the  Philistines saw their champion slain they were dismayed and fled in disorder. David  conquered because he was  himself. He did things in his  own way. He was not willing  to be an imitation of Saul.  That is something for us to  remembers Of the many millions of people in this  world  Coast News   March 291956.  7  no two are alike. Jesus' chose  twelve disciples, and they  were very different. Let us all,  like David, have courage to be  natural.  It is a great mistake in trying to make all people act  alike; let people behave in the  manner that is natural . for  them.
