Instead  it/forseesVa stepping up of the  already . trenieiidous    research  program and heavy capital outlay needed to increase gasoline  quality .fast   enough   to   keep  pace with auto engine requirements.  ��� Since 1946, .says the Review  .Imperial hap spent $70' millions  on gasoline quality improvement. The company expects to  .spend close tp.$50:millions over  the next six years for the sole  purpose of raising octane num-~  bers/ -.. .-,���'������/".:    v  The problem grows more  complex with each increase in  octane number,' for it costis  three to four times as much.to  add one octane point at today's  . level ���';��� in the high 90's ���as  it did when gasoline was at the  84-octane mark.  Compression ratios are now  rising.by, about half a point a  year as auto manufacturers re-  isppnd . to .public / demand for  cars with faster get-away, better ; pick-up, power steering,  power-brakes, automatic transmissions, and other luxury  equipment that drains away ad-  <led horsepower. At present  octane levels, every half-point  increase in compression calls  for a further lV^-point increase  in octane number.  'XToday's cars, according to  the Review, would knock "like  old jalopies" if they tried to  run on 1947 gasoline. At that  time the national average in  Canada for premium gasoline  was 84,7; octane ������ four points  less than the average today for  regular grades^: '   x  ���Back Tin 1938 the average  compression ratio for a car engine-twas 6.3 to 1: and horsepower, 113. But after 1953 the  emphasis, was on more power.  Horsepower leaped ahead to ah  average 207 and average compression ratios to 8.5 to 1 -���  arid the oil industry was caught  in the "squeeze" for higher  qu^ityo gasoline.  "It hajs been said that the  rise in compression ratios has  beenYin response to public demand and that the public xaa  still buy low compression cars  if', it ^wishes," the article says.  "To this, oil company officials  add that those- who do prefer  the high-compression cars must  be prepared to pay more for  the higher-octane gasoline their  engines demand."  It adds that whereas it was  possible a few years ago tQ install refinery equipment which  would increase^ both the yield  and the quality' of gasoline, the  most modern equipment for increasing quality actually reduce^ /yield, and the greater  the quality increase, the lower  the yield., ���'....,       -  y NAME SOUGHT  * The; Coast News staff, is' on  the lookout for the person who  calls himself "Reincarnated."  -��^ That was the, name signed at  the bottom of a letter which  arrived at the Coast News this  week"��� a letter which the  Coast.

Because most of the work has fallen on the shoul-  sfeis of a few, who year after year have been diligent in their  esHorts to provide people of the Sunshine Coast with an annual  a&ars regarded by many people in summer and fall fair circles as  i&eing one of the best organized smaller fairs in British Columbia.  The next question which should be asked is this: Will- the'  JEair die a natural death in a couple of years or will some new  H*tood help out and see it continued?  The present core of hard workers has been doing its job  ^sr years and its members are not getting younger by so doing.  The time has come when the younger element should be taking  an interest.  By younger element the age from 30 on is meant.  What hope is there of the Fair committee having some help  iMs year and for future years? Well ���- that depends on the'pub-  r*S�� spiritedness of Sunshine Coast people living all the way from  TBwt Mellon- to Pender Harbour, because the Fair is representative of the entire Sunshine Coast community.  It is generally' known that Sunshine Coast people have  vaearm hearts when distress signals have been flown for individ-  **a!s or organizations dealing with individuals, either sick or in  aoed health. People who are burned out or suddenly bereaved  ��ce rarely overlooked and help swings their way because some-  csae has sparked the movement to offer help in tangible form.  It is time for the populace to realize the Sunshine Coast  JfistH Fair may soon be flying distress signals. Why wait for the  acollapse to come? Why not step in and do something towards tak-  itagover?  Community enterprise has done wonderful things in other  ^sections of Canada. What has been done elsewhere can be done  ISfflie. It needs what is generally known as the "will to. do." It is  ���something which requires action to explain. Results will prove  t&e "will to do" is present. "  Members of the Fair committee do not expect to be del-  -figgd with phone calls offering help nor with a multitude of  workers who will do Whatever is required but they would like to  Bteve some individuals: phone Mrs. Margaret LeFeuvre, the secretary, at Gibsons 95-F .or call Roy Malyea, the president, at 67-X,  and see where they covjld fit into the Fair organisation. They can.  Mve anywhere from; Port Melion to Pender Harbour. Where they  l&pe will not: matter. What will count is the results of their "will  lodo."   ���"-.���"       " ���"'    ''���'���'"'.        - "���'  Inflation IS confiscation  The idea of Governments withholding pebpie's money has  esRught on in Russia, where the Kremlin has announced a post-  awmement of 20 to 25 years in interest payments and in repay-  aments of principle on about 260 billions of rubles that are being  /fceld in state bonds by Russians.   ���   ���      ���  - While Western governments and people are rightly not-  j_ag with scorn- "that'.-tlie Russian government has cancelled njpre  ?��hat three fourths of its national debt and wiped out the lifetime  Tjssreings of many Russian workers, it would be well to keep in  *ntind that inflation in Western countries, including Canada, is  ialso impairing -the people's savings, 'although at a slower pace.  Sfefiation in Canada, for instance, has wiped out nearly half the  purchasing power of the savings of Canadian, citizens over the  asst two decades. Inflation is a more subtle and jes$ sudden  jwethod of repudiating, debt than confiscation, but it is no less  sure. Inflation and confiscation are both in the best Marxian  tradition. ��� The Printed Word.

It is  &et this reason that I am now  meriting to ask whether- you. can  atiftrise"; me of any' structure,  ^tfeat is building or otherwise,  3te & house, barn, or bridge,  mow existing or jalready destroyed,, which you feel deserves- consideration ori ac-  aKKmt of its age, its character  ��nr the events associated with  afc.

At this moment, I would be  raost  grateful for any  advice  which you /nay let me have iri  this respect without your venturing into too great an incon-,  venierice so that we may examine the situation and determine to what extent it may be  pursued. Most /particularly, I  would be sincerely grateful for  comment on the original date  of the work and for any visual information which you  may be able to.let me have by,  photographs, newspaper cuttings or drawings. I would,  of counse, readily* return anything which was only on loan.  An area or street map would  be most useful.

Imagine yourself talking to  the reader, instead of writing!"  Almost, automatically you Will'1  find yourself answering ques-jT  tions he might ask if he were'  sitting  across  the   desk  from  you. ���/-/; ^  This - requires. you to write/;  the reader's language.

Ba. concise,?IJsershprt^ direct  simple    statements    to    coyer,  your points, and state themin  well-organized1   order.     When*  you are inclined to use often  the words "and, but, however,  consequently"'in the middle of  your sentences, try putting in  ���a period instead. You will find 1  that this adds to the clearness  of what you are saying. It dissipates the fog, and saves-your  reader   from having  to backtrack to find the path.  Loose or unattached pronouns can cause trouble. An ������  airplane accident was traced  to the fact than when the pilot  ordered his co-pilot: "Pull 'em  up!" the co-pilot raised the  flaps instead of the landing  wheels. The "them", being  loose, attached itself to a different context in these two  minds.    .-.-���-'.  Avoid exaggeration. It is'  /essentially a form of ignorance,  replacing poverty of language.  Joseph Pulitzer,, publisher of  the New York World, said that  every reporter ought to be  knocked on the head and told  sad, if we take care to use the  words that convey the spirit as '  well as the sense of what we  wish to say. As Gertrude Stein  put it: "One"of the thirigs that  is a very interesting thing to  know, is how you - are feeling  inside you to the words that  are coming out to be outside  of you."  It is not easy tp write simp- Tp  ly; iri fact it is more difficult H  to be simple than to be'complex. But it is a pleasant experience, like getting into slir>  pers after a day's work or  shopping;  :   The  Editorial   Manual   and  Style Guide of Maclean-Hunter  Publishing Co. Ltd., Toronto,  has this to say: "Theyideal  article has been described as  one written so that the words  are for children and the meaning is .for men."

They, will laugh arid  sing for us, or mourn arid be  that he does riot improve his  work or do the office any good  by exaggeration.  Keep adjectives in reserve  to make your meaning more  precise and look with suspicion  on those you use to make your  language more emphatic.

There was a wide  variety of answers but most  seemed to agree that a controlling purpose, something to  aim at, was most essential. The  writer, Miss Byrne Hope. Saunders said: "I find that when. I  have an ideal to aim at, it  gives me satisfaction and  makes life worthwhile."  Life means more than going  on from- day to day, without  plans, but toiling on in a humdrum way, it is more than going through the motions but  striving for some aim. The  child takes, no long views of  life, that ie its immaturity,;  but the man organizes his life.  A savage is a being without a;  future, fighting and feasting  without long views. An artist  works on because he sees the  finished picture with the mind's  eye���otherwise there would be  no picture. Not only the artist  painter and unusual people  need an ideal but we ordinary  people find rest and enjoyment  in having before us an aim  and purpose in living.  *    *    *  One of the most distinguished American painters was William Merritt Chase. *He lived  tfle greater part of his life in  New York City, and his pictures steadily. improved in  quality. One day a visitor to  his studio asked him which, of  all the pictures he. had painted  he considered his masterpiece.  The artist pointed to a white  carivas with nothing on it and  said: "My masterpiece has not  yet been painted. I have it in  my mind's eye, but have never  succeeded in getting' it onto  can vara. However, I keep on  striving, and some day I expect to do it."  It was .a good answer, and .  it accounted for the fact that  his work steadily improved.  . He had an ideal; and while,  like the horizon in the distance, it seemed to recede as  he approached,   the effort  to  achieve kept him from becoming careless.  y, ;������������#    * . *     .-������-.'   .  A similar story is told of the  Danish ; sculptor Thorvaldson.  One day when he had shown  an exceptionally fine piece of  carving to a friend, the man  said, "You have "reached perfection at last. You cannot improve on that."        y  "I can achieve something  better still/' Thorwaldson replied, and he kept on working harder than ever, T  v After tdn years he finished  a statue* of great beauty, and  his friend said, "You canytiey-  er produce anything finer than  ���.-that.":.        ���'.:"'���':���;/" -.'. :;.Y--Y.y-  "I fear I cannot iriiprove on  that," the sculptor answered.  'T have reached my ideal, anil  now my genius will cease to  grow."  We all need to have ideals  to beckon lis on. If we do not  have them, life will become  poor and mean. There is an  old saying that he who aims  at the sun shoots higher than  he who merely aims at a tree.*  Abraham1 Lincoln was a poor  boy when he said, "I mean to  be somebody," and he becazhe  one of the most worthwhile  men who ever lived.- He had  ideals, and these gave him a  purpose and determination and  helped him become what someone called "A Matterhorn  among men." .  Our quotation __ is by Oliver  , Wendell HoUmes": "It is enthusiasm for something which  makes life worth living."

This will be the microwave  transmission tower atop B.C.  Telephone Company headquarters at Robson and Seymour,.  The tower, which will soar 150  feet above the present eight  story building,- will be the western anchor of the cross country microwave transmission  system which is expected to go  into service early in 1958.  The completed system will  provide vastly improved long  listance telephone communication across Canada, as -well as  offering channels for TV transmission.  Footings for the tower on  the William Farrell Building  are already in place, and engineers expect construction to  get under way soon.  Wovk on erection of the B.C.  relay towers, on a. series of  mountaintops between Vancouver and Crow's Nest Pass, began as soon as the spring thaw  allowed. Footings and buildings for electronic equipment  were put in last summer after  months of testing the locations  with portable equipment for  line of sight contact with locations on either .side.
