Porpoise Bay. She thought the  scenery at the top bf Narrows  Inlet was as least equal if not  better than any mountain scenery she had seen in Switzerland. She was really enthused  over her experience. .  Reason for her enthusiasm  arose as the result of a trip ar.  ranged by Ted Osborne Sr., for  the brigadier, Mr. and Mrs.  Saundters and family and Mr.  Oliver. The male side of the  party were dropped off at the  Osborne camp while the women and children were taken  on to the O&O camp at the  end of Narrows Inlet.  While at the Osborne camp  the brigadier and Mr. Saunders  were, taken to  the 3,000  foot  level where they watched logging operations.   Both visitors  were very interested in  what  they saw arid Mr. Saundters suggested that if B.C. lumbermen  would only buy their machinery from British sources, Brit,  ain would then be able to purchase more Canadian lumber.  The two  trade  commissioners  and Mr. Osborne had a lengthy  discussion on lumbering and its  effects on the general economy.  At the O&O camp run by  Ted  Osborne Jr., the women-  ,.rfolk and the children gat down  ' to lunch' and were amazed at  the variety of food and   also  the quantity.   For people who  had   experienced   austerity   in  Great Britain the copious meals  the loggers put away intrigued  them, Mrs/ Oliver in particular  wh0 recalled! various experiences in parts of Europe which  she thought were in direct contrast to the mode of life in B.C.  lumber camps.  The visitors arrived in Sechelt Sunday morning and  were taken on a motoring trip  to various points on the peninsula and were quite interested  in the scenery particularly in  the area of the lakes before  reaching Earl's Cove. They had  dinner at Pender Harbour hotel  On their return they were entertained) by Mr. and Mrs  James Parker in their home.  Reason for the visit was the  attendance at the lieutenant-  governor's of the' Magistrate  and Mrs/Johnston along with  Mr. Saunders and Mr. Oliver  As a result they were invited  to the Secheft Peninsula by the  Magistrate and his wife along  with Mr. Wrigley, of Australia.

VACK' OF ALL TRADES  Fishing curtailments  i n e^ c ifo b*di mt je^r  For whom, was McGill University named?  James  McGill   was   a  merchant    and   philanthropist   of  ' Montreal who died in 1813. He  willed a large part of his estate to found and endow McGill  University. Born in Glascow,  lie attended Glascow University in 1756, but does not appear  to have taken a degree. Emigrating to the American colonies, he engaged in the fur trade  and wintered in the Indian  country as early as 1766. From  about 1774 ori he made his  headquarters at Montreal. He  lepreserited a Montreal constituency in the Lower Canada  Utegisiature and was appointed  Ho   the   executive   council   in  2793.  *    *    *  Tffho was Maude Abbott?  Maude   Elizabeth    Seymour  Abbott was,one of the first women   doctors   in   Canada   and  one of the relatively few Canadian doctors who have become  inown   internationally.    Born  -at St. Andrews  East, Quebec,  she was  educated at  Bishop's  College arid McGill University.  3Prom 1912 to 1923 she was a  Fellow in Pathology at McGill,  and thereafter a research professor on that university's med-  fcal faculty. She wrote a number of books, including several  ���am  congenital   heart  diseases.  and A History of Medicine in  iSie Province of Quebec which  was   published   in   1931.   She  died at Montreal in 1940.  What did the Ashburion-Web--."  tfet Treaty settle?  Several outstanding disagreements, especially with relation  to boundaries, were settled by  ���She Ashburton-Webster Treaty,  which was signed at Washing-  Una on August 9, 1842. In the  negotiations, Britain was represented by Lord Ashtourton  while Daniel Webster represented the United States. The  Maine-New Brunswick contro-  irersy was ended by giving the  ITnited States seven-twelfths  of the disputed area and Canada   five-twelfths. -The   boun-  Lizard display  Eight little horned lizards  Save just arrived at the Vancou  vet Public Aquarium from,the  desert regions of'the southwest.

Since the first atomic bombs were dropped on Japan to  end the Second* World War, people have blamed extremes of weather on the explosions. But this is hardly a new'theory. Violent  weather conditions following, the First World War were popularly believed to be. the result of battle explosions of various kinds.  If there is one point people will agree on concerning the  weather, it is this: things were very different when they were  young. But memory plays queer tricks on all of us wher^ the  weather is concerned. We recollect certain kinds of weather (perhaps because of the unfortunate effect it had on our cherished  outdoor sports, or our rheumatism) but we completely forget  other kinds of weather.  If there is any change in our weather, history indicate��  that the fluctuation is merely part of a long-term cycle.  One Claudius Ptolemaeus of Alexandria, Egypt, kept a  weather diary for a number of years after the year 150 A.D. His  records show that Egypt had: much more violent weathes conditions than she has today. There were as many rainy .days in summer as in winter, whereas Egypt is nearly rainless during summer  now. Thunder storms were common during the summer months  but now they are rare.  Graphs prepared by the American Government show that  departures from normal temperatures and precipitation in the  U.S. decreased steadily from the early 1900's until the early  1940's. Perhaps our heavy rains are merely a swing��in the-other-  direction.  However, the best explanation for. extreme weather con- ,  ditions seems to come from the sun. Scientists know little about  the effect of the sun on our weather, but they do know that sun-  spots have a markedi effect on weather. The biggest sunspot ever  recorded was seen this year, which could be the reason why the  worst thunder storm in local memory' lashed -the peninsula Saturday,       x - ���' '���."���'  Fishing curtailments recently applied to meet sockeye salmon escapement requirements  on the Fraser River have been  eased. :  The action follows a recommendation bf the International  Pacific Salmon Fisheries Commission and results fromjm improvement of the spawning situation on the Fraser during  the past few days.

For at least one couple' the  "House Party" of 1956 holds  precious memories. A widow  and widower from Western  Canada met;during their voyage and a short,time later wed  ding bells were ringing. In  1957 they took the tour again  as a' second honemoon.  Pensioners like the idea of  travelling in a group of people  with a similar background, and  the organized tours help them  to spend their time more profitably overseas. The plan,  available only to pensioners  and employees of the Canadian  Pacific, has met with increasing success and (enthusiasm  since it wais first developed in  1955 by Archibald Sturrbck:  retired master mechanic of  Vancouver, B.C.  Mr. Sturrocb says he is convinced the. party will grow  each year. Already he is hard  at work organizing next year's  event. He adds "It's so easy to  do, I have lots of repeats."  Mr. Sturrock is president of  the Canadian Pacific Pioneer  Social and Service Association  on the West Coast.

On my last visit  to England a cousin took me  to see a soccer, football game:  -there, were 56,000 people present -and thegame was exciting.  WhenTit4nded'my cousin asked  me how I liked the gafne. I answered: "i* was greatly interested  to   see   56,000   persons  so  completely   happy.    It   might  not   even���- interest   some   but  these people Avere relaxed and  it gave them something to talk  ; about   and   discuss   for   some  :   time." .ZZZaZ     ���  Others find interest in books  or travel or some other form of  art but it seemed to me wonderful that such a vast throng  had found an outlet* for interest and emotion. I once, heard  a lady express her dislike for  a man because he seemed so ��  cheerful.* She said: "Only fools  ��� and children are happy." I  suspect she meant it for ,tb.ere  are many who. dislike cheerfulness as something shallow or  childish.  Well,  I don't  see  anything  about childhood distasteful but ,  I do see much about being cynical   or   scornful   that  is   unpleasant.   Jesus   said  concerning. children:  "Of ;such is the  -Kingdom   of   Heaven"   and   I  think that sheer joy is a corn-  amendable quality. ���  *    *    *  A great man said: "We are  more like God when we are  hapjjy for it shall last as long  as God endures but sorrow is a  transient thing ��� doomed to  pass away." There is no hard  and fast rule about what form  it should take ��� provided we  do not injure others���-but we  should welcome anything  ...which lifts people above drud-  gtery andl seek to decrease the  sum .total of misery.  In the hunt for happiness we  must know that it comes from  within not1 what we have but  whae we are. Tlie great delu-'  sion is to think that if we had  more or lived somewhere else*  we .would be satisfied but such  pursuits are like bubbles that  burst as we touch them. I have  known many happy men and  women and they have all ad  justed themselves to life and  they have warmed the hearts  of others. Their's has not been .  the happiness of the .shallow  but the victory of conquest ���  often after hard struggles.  ��!��       ?$���       Si-  It' was   Helen   Keller   who  wrote:   "I,   who   have   never  heard a sound, tell you there /  is ho silence, and I, "who have ;  never seen a ray of light, tell  you there is ho darkness."  Helen Keller herself is a  striking illustration of spiritual radiance. She was 'severe- y  ly handicapped by blindness,"  deafness and imperfect speech.  She T was hemmed in behind  Walls which threatened to shut  her out from any fellowship,  Coast News, Aug. 15, 1937.    7  human or divine. But she tunnelled her way through these  barriers; ceased to be an object  of pity and became a channel  of blessing. She writes in My  Religion: "I cannot imagine  myself without religion. I could  as easily imagine myself living  "without a heart. To one who  is blind and deaf, the spiritual  world off ers no difficulty.-. .the  inner or mystic sense gives me  vision of the unseen. My mystic world is lovely with trees  and clouds and stars and eddying streams I have never seen.  Sceptics declare that I see  'light that neverTvjas on sea or  land' but I know that their  mystic sense is dormant, and  that is why there are. so many  barren places in their lives."  . ���   Z. i�� "      *5* 5jC j  Our quotation is by Jonathon  Brierly: "There-is Such a thing  as the irrepresssable radiance  of the saints." ���...' y  / L  **  ~<^^il*^  Something special to celebrate  our 125th anniversary  To celebrate our 125th Anniversary,  we proudly present G&W Old Rye Whisky  ���Canada's first bottled whisky���in an  eye-catching new Little-Brown Jug!
