Hon, J.M. Macdonnell, minister without portfolio, speaking about (Stanley Knowles, Winnipeg North Centre CCF, saidY  "I could not hear him too well (when making a certain speech)  but I thought it was French and I had a feeling that miracles  were going to happen and before we knew where we were, all  of us would be bilingual and the problem might disappear."  At that point Mr. Knowles said something which the Hansard reporter wrote down as "Desire."  After Hansard was printed Mr. Knowles rose in the house  and to Mr. Speaker, said: "May I ask for a correction in Hansard  so as to preserve the bilingual traditions of the house. On Monday night at ten o'clock the hon. member for Greenftvood (Mr.  Macdonnell) was quite properly twitting me about my facility  in the French language. In order to show I was not discouraged  in my attempt to use the other language of this house I sought  to point out that it was ten o'clock by saying 'dix heures.' I note  that Hansard has me saying 'desire.' I realize the joke is at my  expense but I should be glad if the correction might be made."  One can surmise Mr. Knowles will spend more time studying French phonetics so the bilingual traditions of the house will*  not be disturbed, even with laughter.   ���   ���   y ���  Humane Slaughter  Requests for legislation providing  humane methods  of  slaughter for animals appear to be growing.and The Coast News  has received nudges from variou^ people over the last few months  The federal government appointed a committee to investigate the problem some months ago. Last week A.B. MacDonald,  Vancouver Kingsway CCF member asked the federal minister  of agriculture if he had any such legislation under consideration  for this session. The reply stated there twas no particular legislation at this time.  The minister of justice added that "ten days or two weeks  ago we met with representatives of the committee Which had  been working in Ontario and we did examine very fully the contents bf their report and the results of their investigations. While  iwe have not at the moment any legislaton ready I wish to assure  the hon. gentleman and the house that we are making continuing  studies of the matter, because we recognize the great seriousness  of the problem and the importance attached to it by so many  people."  The above is the latest information available and shows-  that federal officials are working on the problem which might  mean that pressure from public sources should continue.  cessions ���  ibuted  i A man lived by the side of the road and sold hot dogs. He  was hard of hearing so he had no radio. He had trouble with  his eyes so he read no newspapers. But he sbid good hot dogs.  He put up a sign on the highway telling how good they  were. He stood hy the side of the road and cried "Buy a hot dog,  Mister." And people bought: He increased his meat and roll orders. He bought a bigger stove to fake care.of his trade. He got  his. son home>from college to help him./  But then something happened.. . His son said: "Father,  haven't ycm been listening tp^the radio?Tlf money stays 'tight' we  are bound to have bad business. There may be a recession coming  on. You had better prepare for poor trade."  Whereupon the father thought, "Well, my son has been  to college. He reads the papers and he listens to the radio, arid  he ought to know." So the father cut down on his meat and roll  orders. Took do'wn his advertising sighs. And he no longer bothered to stand on the highway to sell hot dogs. And his hot dog  sales fell almost overnight. "You're right, son," the father said  to the boy. "We are certainly headed for a recession."  REMIND YOU OF ANYONE YOU KNOW?  CENTENNAiSY SPORTS  The best in cricket that eastern Canada has to offer will come  up against western Canadian tal-  lent in a series of exhibition  matches throughout British Columbia next year.

THOUGHTS FOR TODAY  The driver who. speeds along  at 85 is literally killing time.  Tip to motorists: Watch out  for school kids ��� they weren't  brought Tup to be run down.  r --.. Scandal is" one thing. that  never* gets shop worn, by being passed around. '  The optirriist.' sees things as  . they should be'��� *-ii ndt as they  -..are. -v ���    ������*.   ..���*."  mi   *%<&&& -<**���,/? <L��<��m.  Editpr: Many people like  myself may be unfamiliar with  the following situation: '���  When the S.M.T. bus is late  reaching Langdale, the passengers waiting there are told by  Black Ball officials to get their  ferry tickets at the wicket and  pay bus fares on boarding the  bus. By so doing, a trip to  town costs 15 cents more, because under P.U.C. ruling, the  bus company has to charge the  same fare as Pacific Stages  from Horseshoe Bay.  Personally, I shall insist in  future on paying both ferry  and bus fare on the bus, for I  fail to see why the travelling  public should be penalized to  help the Black Ball keep to  schedule. yj  Mary H. Thomson '%  Editor: Will you permit|me  the use of your paper to s^y?a  few words on behalf of :our  dumb animals who are being  killed in a most inhuman and  agonizing manner, 'Although  this applies to all our meat  animals, I speak especially of  the pigs, who seem* to smeU  death, as they are forced into  the room, in which the killing  takes place.  It seems there is a raised  platform according to Jean  Howarth, on which the man  stands who is the unwilling  cause of their pandemonium.  From the first pig to the last,  the squealing and thrashing  about is so great that Jean  would have been in danger of  being knocked down, if she had  not had the advantage of this  platform. And who can blame  the poor creatures?  They could easily be stun-  fted with the use of an electric  punch, after which they could  be stuck and bled without  knowing it, I do not think the  cost of electricity would be  prohibitive to the slaughter  barons. .... ���''  In some organizations people  have a tendency to think thip  is not their business. This is the ���  business of every person who  eats meat. If not, who else's  business is it? If there were no  meat enjoyed in tasty repasts  by us, there would be very few  pigs killed. Every.organization  from the ratepayers to the  churches, from service clubs to  private groups, who have any  influence should endeavour to  make it felt j-'and put an end to  this ghastly work. Any person  who enjoys a pork* sandwich  should see to it that he has left  no stone unturned to reduce  the needless pain being inflicted on God's creatures.  Helena M.

Sir:  At  the Farmers' Insti-,  tute  meeting   last   night   the  subject of humane  slaughtering   of hogs  and   other  livestock was discussed.  As members of this organization we join with the many  thousands of men and women  who abhor cruelty, and .like  them, we call for immediate  cessation of such brutal ^methods. From the latest information we understand that the  matter is being placed on the ���  shoulders of the province.  We urge that the fullest attention be given by the federal and all provincial governments.  There should be no excuse,  for Canada lagging behind  other countries; apid no excuse  should toe tolerated for any delay in passing the necessary  legislation for humane killing.

He was like! the man  who lost most'of his teeth in  an accident, and wheri ?his  friends thought this would end  his cheerfulness they were surprised to find he said he had  cause for thankfulness. "Just  ���think," he saicj, "I have only  two teeth left,- and they are  opposite each, other."       ���   Simm   .  It is a fact that cheerfulness  -joduit sr ^BqM pvte *iqeir e * st  tant for us isi that it.can be  cultivated. Early in life a  wholesome attitude takesr* pos-  ession of some people, and it  is a good thing for them and  all who live with them. Robert  L. Stevenson said that when a  cheerftil man came into a room  it'was like lighting another  candle. If they joined others,  instantly the conversation took  a turn for the better; to think  well of others was as natural  ��*to them as breathing.  The poet Burns said such a  man was contented with little  and happy with more. Julia  Ward Howe, who wrote "The  Battle Hymn of the Republic,"  said she had- lived 90 happy  years and: "There was still a  lot of sugar at the bottom of  the cup." That was a wise saying of Washington Irving: '-I  like company where the jokes  are small and the laughter  large/T'; ,T;;y-y.yY*T,\ .' ���        - '  The idea sometimes prevails  that only.superficia people are  cheerful��� that the; real thinkers are unhappy.

T  *   " *   ���������*/'"*���  Just as a typist becomes so  used to striking the right keys  that it becomes 'second-nature'  ,so positive thinking can be developed to such an extent that  it is also second nature.  It has been said that we have  no record in the New Testament of Jesus hesitating. We  do not read of Him asking for  time to think things over. Because He was perfect He did  the will of God spontaneously.  As the Apostle Peter wrote,  Jesus.has left us an example  and we have a right to believe  that a thoroughly wholesome,  cheerful attitude to life may  be ours by the help of the  grace of God.  Years ago I knew a.lady  who lived to be oyer 100 years  of age. I never knew her to  indulge in negative thinking.  There was no place in her mind  for meaness. She saw the best:  i everybody. She moved from  Toronto to Vancouver so I did  not meet her during the closj  ing years of her life, but those  who were with her until the  end told me that her attitude  did not alter, except to grow :  stronger. Like the poet, Cole-  ridgeg, of her it could be said:  "She saw naught but beauty.  And  heard. the voice of  the  Almighty. One  In ev<ery breeze that blew  Or wane that murmured."  Because of her wholesome  attitude to life, this lady was  supremely happy as she was  also deeply religious. For it is  ever true that, "Beauty is in  the eye Of the beholder.**-'  ��� -.���*"���*. * - *  ���  Our quotation. is by Q.S.  Marden: "We change our habits bychangirig our -thoughts."
