He  had served the party in Saskatchewan where the CCF has  fead 12 years to test its theories.  The result of. the Winnipeg CCF conference where it  modified the Regina manifesto and adopted a sort of strad-  Sdlzng the fence between capitalism and socialism has  'certainly substantiated Ross Thatcher's thinking.  Mr. Thatcher is a business man with hardware stories  m Moose Jaw and Regina. As a hard-headed business he was  apparently not smitten with the Saskatchewan CCF efforts  iat trying to socialize businesses as Crown Corporations.  It is true that Crown Corporations have shown a  profit but examination of what goes to make that profit  does not enhance the picture of socialism at work. The  core of the profit-making Crown Corporations include tlie  Power Commission and Telephones- department. The rest,  the boot factory, and tannery, woollen mill, brickyards and  tothers have been run at a loss, not one year but every  year. Some will say the bus system which the CCF started  lias shown a profit. This is correct but in order to maintain  its profit it has sold its unprofitable runs to private operators who apparently are making a success where the  government failed.  It must be remembered, too, that the Power Corpora"  Hon and the Telephones system were in operation before  the CCF took over in Saskatchewan. To make the lesser  Crown Corporations appear successful, accounting was done  on the basis of turning all the govermental money-makers  into Crown Corporations so the profit and loss statement  ;would be the kind wanted by the CCF.  No attempt is being made here to show the CCF has  not given Saskatchewan good government. It has, but  -like ..Premier Bennett of British Columbia it has  "rigged the books" to show how good it is. Such a policy  ���will in the long run react against government and what  has happened to CCF policy is a good example of what  can happen to Social Credit in British Columbia.  For   any.     politician    to    maintain    Social     Credit   is   responsible   for   the present   excellent   economic  condition of   British   Columbia���   well he is just prat-  ittihg incomprehensible baby talk. Any CCF member who  ���maintains the   CCF has put   Saskatchewan   where it is  'today Is talking in the same lingo. Economic circumstance  -.'has- had a great deal more effect on politicians than poli-��  itici&ns have had on economic circumstances.     They may  jtal�� all   round the point   but they will have a   difficult  job   convincing   intelligent people it is      all    their ' doing. No matter how wonderful our politicians think thejr  fere they cannot avoid being   creatures of    circumstance.  jThe CCF party has discovered this   and.has decided/...to���������  .Veer from the straight line of Socialism..It will be intetest-  Mg to watch how these creatures of circumstance carry  "on for the next few years. The CCF has haS a good influence  on Canadian politics, a much better   influence than    has  Social Credit.  .  ��'' ���  H.  Merrilees,  Mr. and  Mrs  C.  Lunn,' Mr and Mrs J.

DUNKIN  Doctor of Optometry  906  Birks  Building  VANCOUVER, B.C.  FELLOW  TRAVELLERS    .  A speaker addressing a  number af ordinands for the  Christain ministry said to  them: "No matter how hard  you try, there will be people  you cannot influence - - they  are not for you. It may be  their fault or perhaps yours,  but they are outside your influence." That advice is good  for all of us and the sooner  we realize it the better. Certain people get on each others  Jnerves; the best we can do is  to be courteous and kind, and  not be discouraged. We can  console ourselves with the  truth, we are bound to rub  some people the wrong way.  An  English   writer said  recently that    some  men    who  were    national    heroes    had  bitter    enemies, and    perhaps  the opposition brought out the '  best in them.  He gave a. list  of famous people all of whom  were     cordially    disliked    in  some  quarter.     Don't     break  your  heart  over  it;   do   your  best, be honest and   straight- ���  forward; remember it may be  your personality  or  temperament, and    leave it at    that.  The manager of a departmental  store once said to me:    "Tlie  last thing in the world t,  With, somie  people is t0  oyer them. It only embaresses  them and   makes them ill at  ease."  * -   * ���   *  A   close     observer  of     life  said:   "The  tragic   failures  of  life have not been because of  Sack  of  ability  but    because  /they did not know how to get  ���on. with people- It may be because they were self-willed or  .stubborn,    but   they did    not  know how t0    adjust     their  lives to other people."  1   These people are our fellow  travellers.   We  have   to  meet  Uiem often, and    there is    no  use in having them rub us the  wrong way.  J once read about  ,the   enemies    that   Abraham  iLincoln made and there were  many of them -    hut he   hacl  "their respect because he was  kind  and fair. He' once   said:  "I  havte    never    deliberately  i ��lacei a worry in any   man's  bosom." /  Life  is  like walking   along  a highway. We    find    others  walking    with    us,    for    we  teannot foavie the road t0 ourselves. Futhermore, twe    can-  bot choose our fellow travellers;  therefore we must learn  to tolerate them,  to be  amiable and look for the best in  them. There is no doubt that  feach    other just   as    certain  certain personalities jar upon  plants are  said to turn  away  from other plants. The mutual  dislike is so instinctive as to be  unconscious.  It is not t0 be wondered at  that people whose temperaments and dispositions are  totally different should find  themselves at variance. Yet  feuch feelings should not be  allowed to degenerate into  (bitterness. Travelers say that  in Polynesia,  where  the nat>  Trees Source of Motor JFesel9 Food  i ��� *  industrial  Revolution Envisioned  For Rural B.C. Under Forest Plan  Among those attending the  Sfluare Dance Saturday evening  ware, Dr and Mrs Richmond,  Mr cmd Mrs W.  Dix, Mr and  Mrs T. Campbell, Mr and Mrs  British Columbia's great forests, nl-  ready the raw material lor a growing  list of fibres, plastics and chemicals,  may one day become a source of motor  fuel. From B.C.'s trees it Is possible  to produce millions of gallons of  industrial alcohol  or high protein  food for animals  or even human  consumption.  These and other  possibilities for  rural develop-  in e n t in B. C.  were envisioned  by M. J. Foley,  president of the  Powell River  Company, pioneer-  B. C. pulp and  paper industry; in  an address to the .  Vancouver Rotary  Club.  The* new scientific age of forest  utilization, said Mr. Foley, woxiM open  up B.C.'s vast hinterland, create anew  type of "tree farmer", pour.minions of  dollars into th�� pockets of rural Work-  era in all walks of life and provide new  employment for thousands.  But this rosy picture of rural Industrial revolution,' Mr. Foley emphasized,  will depend upon th�� vision and wiir  dom of present day legislators, on their  realization that the 'forest must, be  treated as a farm, not as a storehouse  of materia! to be used up. .Our legisla-  M. V'J; Forty  tors, he said, must create "enlighten*  ed laws" to encourage thousands oi  individuals to take on the Jsb of grow<  ing trees for profit.  Industry realizes the potentialities oi  the future, said Powell River's president; and is willing to invest huge  sums in research and long term plana  for increasing 'our forest growth.  Government, however, should giv<  companies and individuals the right tfl  buy lands to operate as tree farms and  to encourage people by every possible  means to apply their skills, not only to  cutting down trees, but tto ensuring  endless rebirth of forest wealth.  Government ownership of all forest  land is an attractive idea to soma  people, said Mr. Foley. But the public  purse could not support government  -.-in spending the huge -sums of money  which are now vitally necessary to  maintain and protect our forest wealth.  Public demand, he said, is for tax  -money to be spent for roads, bridges',  hospitals and social services.  "1 believe the time has come when  the government of B.C. should begin  following the tried and proven pattern  of more mature economies, such as in  Europe ana the U.S.A., which have a  much higher standard of forestry than  wo in EC. and in which the proportion, of��� privately, owned land far exceeds the publicly owned."  ���The people of B.C., Mr. Foley��con-  cluded, must become tree farmers aa  well as tree harvesters, if the promise  of our forest future is to be fulfilled. *  ives spend much of their time  in fighting and feasting, it is  -fcustomary for each man to  keep alive some reminders of his hatreds. Articles are  suspended- from the -roofs of  ; their huts in order to keep  alive the memory of their supposed wrongs: They are afraid  that the bitterness will die  dcfwn, so they keep bones,  teeth, and other objects before  them, the sight of which works  ithem into a frenzy of rage:  Sometimies educated people  in Christian countries hav*  kept antipathies alive: The  great German poet Heinrich  Heine kept a "black list"  which contained the names of  all who he believed had injur  ed him. at one time or another1  It seems strange that a man  so endowed- with genius could  harbor such resentments:  *     *     *  It is a terrible mistake to  keep alive bitter feelings, as  is folly to dwell upon the deficiencies and shortcomings of  other people. The ^happiest  people in the world are those  who afe quick to see the good  qualities in others and who  'are strong in appreciation. By  Ithis I do not mean an easy  amiability* but a deep seated  conviction, people are invariably decent and that if given  a chance ihey will prove their  true worth. ',.  The Reverend Johs Watson {Ian Maclaren) once published t book of sermons entitled "Respectable Sins". It was  a frank recognition of the fact  thet in the minds of most peo-  pel1 there are two kinds of sins.

A business trip on the Pen-  SPORTS  WEEK  At North Vancouver, Wilson  Creek representing the M.P.S.  League made their first bid fwr  the B.C. championship by defeating the Park Royal Squad  by 5-4. This was the first of a  five game series and the locals  were fortunate to come out of  the fray with a win. The first  two men up to bat in the game  walked but expired on base.  In the field, it took the Creek-  ers quite a while to throw off  a severe case of "play-off"  itus" but after a jittery start  and a few errors they settled  down to a hard fought game.  Royals took the lead by one  run in the second inning then  in the fourth Wilson Creek  brought in five big runjs and  that was it.  The Royals countered with  two runs in the bottom of the  fourth. The remaining five  innings wtere a real; thriller  with only one run scored by  ' the  Royalis in the seventh.  The higih-light of the game  came in the last inning. Dick  Gaines along with the rest of  the infieldi, closied in for an  expected bunt which went  over his head and Dick took a  Helen Stewart special and  dived head first along the  ground to make the catch,  with a rousing round of applause.  The next game will be  played at Wilson Creek, Sunday August 19 commencing at  2:30 p.m., should a third game  be necessary it will be in the  early evening of the same  date.
