Above everything else, all labels and ��� 'isms" we must recognize and feel that we are all  human beings. De. Hewett quoted a remark made by Margaret  Mead at the opening of UBC's  International House, ','We hold  the future of Russia's children  in our hands as she holds the future of Pur children in hers.  Only in as much as we hold ourselves responsible for them will  they   feel   responsible   for   us."

Sunshine Coast  Hospital Improvement District.  One final step is required, the  election of trustees to administer the district.  Mr. William Coffey of Sechelt  has been appointed' returning  officer and will announce dates  for the election of trustees. Contrary to views held by members  of the organizing committee  trustees will be nominated at  public meetings. Voting will take  place- according to the method  laid down by the returning officer.  During public meetings which  preceded the plebiscite to form  the Hospital Improvement District, organizing committee mem  bers stated that trustees would  be elected in a formal election.  This apparently was an error..  The . Hospital Improvement. Dis  trict has been" formally divided  into four zones. The boundaries  of these zones will be defined on  public, notices advising of the  election. Generally speaking  they are as follows:  Zone 1, Port Mellon, Williamson's Landing, Hopkins Landing,  Granthams and Gambier Island,  to elect one trustee..

This week has a spiritual depth and teaching all its own. It was  a very full week in Christ's life. The events of it have a great meaning for us.  Palm Sunday with its shouts of Hosanna and the waving of the  palm branches reminds us of how easy it is to honor Christ with our  lips, but not follow Him to the cross of sacrifice.  Maundy Thursday, when He instituted the Holy Communion, reminds us of the great benefits which we receive from the Blessed Sacrament. Maundy Thursday might be called the birthday of the Holy  Communion.  Good Friday reminds us starkly and powerfully that Christ died  for our sins. We cannot save ourselves. There is only one Saviour,  and He is Christ.  Holy Saturday when Our Lord's body lay in Joseph's new tomb,  recalls the statement in the Creed: "He descended into hell," and we  think of how in spirit He preached in Paradise to those who had lived  and died before His Birth. Scriptural reference to this is found in  I Peter 3:18 and 19. We are reminded also of the importance of the  Sacrament of Holy Baptism. A well-kept Holy Week is conducive to  a happy Easter.  What should all this mean to those who have heard of Christ and  His Redeeming Qualities? First, I would say that we must remember  that God took the first step towards us to redeem all mankind for his  past sins, in that He gave His Only Begotten Son. Jesus Christ lived  a very short life on this earth, but that life gave to all mankind a  Perfect Example and Way to follow.  Still man's desires centred more around his own wants and aims  neglecting his spiritual food for want of material gains.. Christ then  gave of his own life on the Cross of Calvary, not for a spectacle of  pity or a gruesome show of bravado, but an ever present reminder  that the Love of God and the Love of Himself were forever with His  people.  Secondly and finally, I would say that to live as Christians, Good  Friday should be a Holy Day in our lives, living with Him to the  depths to which mankind has sunk, so that we may rise with Him on  Easter Day triumphant over all evil even the evil and selfish desires  of ourselves.      . -y. ���..-.-.--.     7  I would like to close these thoughts for Holy Week with a quotation for Good Friday, "What, could ye not watch with me, one hour?"  Also a quotation for Easter Day, "I was glad when they said unto  me, let us go into the House of the Lord."

Though unheeded, pointing upward  Are God's angels ��� here and now  With a loving admonition  Asking low,  "Why weepest thou?"  Seekest thou a living message?  Turn thyself and lift thine eyes  From the tomb of mortal seeming ���  ���':      See Truth's mighty purpose rise;  Rising with a fuller splendor  Than the human view can trace,  Moving thee to say with wonder,  Surely God is in his place!  Vera Constance Howard in The Christian Science Sentinel  "Why, Oh'wihy, would you  choose to live in a place accessible only by water?"  "Once the novelty has worn  thin, you will both be bored  to distraction." '  "It might be alright in summer, but what of the winter?"  Such . were the gloomy,  friendly predictions when we  ���chose the village of Gibsons  on British Columbia's Sunshine  Coast for our retirement days.  None of these predictions  came to pass. With each, year  the ties grow stronger, and my  husband and I both feel fortunate in claiming the Sunshine Coast as home. There is  so much to like about living  on the Sunshine  Coast.  I like the friendly people.  The cheery little note ���-'for  no special occasion at all ���  The unexpected gift of freshly  baked bread, the jar of amber-  clear jelly���small things bringing joy to the heart.  I like the peace and serenity  that surrounds me and the reasonable assurance that the  noises of the night will be no  more than ; the gentle lapping  of '"waves upon the beach. I  like the beauty of small islands  and snow-capped mountains  and the breath taking beauty  of sunrise on Howe Sound  turning sky and water into  molten gold.  I like the ever changing  scene of barges, tugboats and  loe booms passing by. And  clouds    on    a    rainy day like  misty veils of chiffon sort of  playing tag around the islands,  and tr.ie small boats' at anchor  in the bay.  I like the happy, interesting  folk ���who.  live   in   the    small  white    cottages    dotted    along  the shore-line. People from all  walks   of   life;   soldier,   sailor,  civil   servant,   doctor,; lawyer,  banker and clergyman. Happy  people   because   they . settled  here   from choice.  They  were  perhaps summer campers over  the years, or perhaps like myself,   merely guests for a  day  ��� all with  the same thought  ���; this is wlhere I want to live.  Interesting    people���because  their life is full and rich with  everyday living.  Among  them  we meet the artist, the sculptor,    playwrite,    song:   writer,  author  and philosopher.  Tourists hoard memories of  the __Suhshiine Coast. Travel  bureaus extole it's beauty. Enterprising businessmen predict  unlimited possibilities for the  future.  But perhaps the nicest, the  truest sentiment is expressed  in two words hanging from a  sign on the rose covered entrance of a retired minister's  home. "Desired Haven." The  reverend gentleman took this  snnrnrpriatp name from the  .^rintures. St. Paul said, "When  their days, of work are over,  God will lead them to a desired haven.";  C<mld any tribute to the  beauty and the serenity of the  Sunshine Coast be greater than  those' two words. ��� Desired  Haven.

And do it regularly ia  COAST NEWS  (By EDWARD J. ATLEE)  ���'*  On a lovely late springf  morning, quite a number of  years ago, I was working in  my garden with/ a hopeful eye  upon the budding pea rows, at  a spot about 100 yards from  Shoal Channel, facing. S.E. A  ibig young lad of 15 years, was  staying with us at the' time  and I was glad of his willing  help and he glad of the few  pence which he picked up.  I asked him in conversation  if he knew what a "morel"  was. Now when I tell you that  (he had told me, quite seriously, only a few days before that  he wished to become a minister of the Gospel, his answer  was rather startling to say the  least..Clapping the sandy loam  his hands and spitting quite a  distance' for a lad of his age,  he came out with this:���"Ah!  Yes! Umph! Umph! Yes Sir! I  would say its giving anyone  a  dam  good warning."  Well we picked 22 of tihesa  delicious fungi from underneath the bending boughs of  our golden russet apple tree,  and our mid-day lunch was  handsomely favored by them.  What is a morel? Firstly it  is a fungus whose spores grow  in* rotting and rotten debris  (as a mushroom). It is the same  thing as the mofille of France,:  dried in powdered form and  used Si French cookery:' I have  picked them only ten feet away  from the cliff's face growing  in and through old weed and  grass hay. The average height  is from six to nine inches.  Then again some years before this, "when life was youn^'  and gay,'' I ��� was about to spade .  up some ground beneath my  ima'ther-in-laws apple trees in  Burnaiby. She was a clever and  loveable woman in more ways  than one. and was a blue ribbon holder from the New Westminster and Burnaby show3.  Her Queen Anne cherries had  no rivals  As we approached fjhds shady  and pleasant part of her orchard she exclaimed 'what are  all these funny things sticking  up out of the ground? they  were not there yesterday evening?' I quie " told her they  were "morels," the French  morille of cookery book fame.  I gatheredyup a hatfull and a  half.    .    '*"':  Now as I am writing this I  receive a copy of the Illustrated London News, kindly sent  to me by Mrs. C. Clarkson,  Pratt Road. And there written  by Mr. Edward Hyams, "a  learned man," is an article  amongst other things on  morels, Morcheilla Esculenta.  A cluster of these delectable  fungi had appeared in an old  dump of the London times and  Cider Press pulp, in the back  of his garden. He honestly  states that he had never seen  one "in the flesh" before, and  having coffee that evening  with a naturalist friend, a Mr.  Hamsbottom, he took a few  over for identification.  Mo-rels were garnered in  England in the days of Good  King Hail and were served with  larks tongues and melted butter. But ��� An' it may please  you ��� anyone culling edible  toadstools, of which there are  many, morels or mushrooms,  should   "know   their   onions."  At the 1904 Olympic Games in  St.   Louis.  Canadians   have participated in all the Olympic contests   since   then.  The   Olympic  Games became a national festival  in Greece   in  776   BiC.   and  visitors    were    attracted    from  many  foreign   lands. -The 'competitions were held in each fourth  year;   the  locale was   the plain  of Olympia. These ancient game^  were  abolished by the Emperor  Theodosius  in ��� A.D.   394  because  they   had  become v a  source   of  feuding   and  discontent.   It  was  not  until  1896   that  the   games  were revived  at  Athens,   under  the  inspiration of  Baron Pierre  de Coubertin of France, with the  idea   of promoting  international  amity   through   amateur   sports.  Except   for   cancellation   of the  games in 1916, 1940 and 1944 because   of    war    conditions,   the  games   have   been   held;, every  fourth    year    since    1896.    The  games   are held   under the   administration   of a self-perpetuating body, the International Olympic Committee.  Where was America's first  metallic Magnesium produced?  At  Shawihigan,   Que.,   by   the  Shawinigan Electro Metals Company. Up to the time of the First  World   War,   Germany   was  the  only   source  of   magnesium,   an  important   ingredient   of   flares  and  signals. In  complying  with  the   Imperial  Munitions  Board's  request for the metal, the Shawinigan  firm   produced   the  first  commercial metallic magnesium  in North America.  Concentrated  brine containing magnesium was  obtained from the Dow Chemical  Company   in  Michigan.   It   was  electrolyzed in   the fused   state  to   produce    magnesium    metal.  The plant  operated at the  rate  of 400 pounds of metal per day  from  1915 until-the���endT of���the���  war.  About   30   years  later,   in  1947, the Aluminum Company of  Canada at Arvida, Que., installed  equipment to make metallic magnesium electrolytically from concentrates  obtained  from brucite  limestone.

Fathers , may be  groaning about the mounting  cost of new clothes to wear on  Easter Sunday. These pressing  problems should not crowd out  in the lives of thoughtful  adults the significance of Easier for them.      .  At t&is season the church  proclaims the good news of  life after death. Faith in im-  morta'ity for the Christian is  reenfcreed by the -story of  Easter Sunday morning of  Christ rising from the dead.  * * *  In Vera Brittain's "Testament of Youth" she expresses  this sentiment in a letter of  hers to her friend Winifred  Hoiltly, who was alsdr a British  writer: ���" Vicitory over death  can bs two-fold: a victory over  death by the man who faces  it for himself without fears,  and a victory by. those who,  loving him, know that, death  is but a little thing compared  with the fact that he lived and .,  was .the kind of person he  ��� was v7-7v."  One  man's life  who contributed r immeasurably    to    the  training    of    youth    in    many  lands was; Lord Baden Powell.  The inscription  on the   gravestone of the founder of Scout-.  . ing.  whidfti is  in   Kenya,  Ea_t  Africa,    reads:    "Lord , Baden  Powell,    Chief   Scout   of   the  World.   Born   February   22nd,  1857; died January 8th, 194.1."  Under   these   words   is   O,   (a  circle with a dot in the center),  the   Scout   sign   for   "I   have  gone Thome." * .  A Scotchman,, writing to  Francis Gay, compiler of The  Friendship Book, published in  1953, made this comment, ...I  "Only a man with unshake-:'  able confidence could leave  this message behind." Lord  Baden "Powell died before tho  ; first atomic bomb was exploded, before tTme development of  "missiles and many scientific  'advances which have increased7  the atmosphere of tension arid  foreboding in the international  scene. He also died before the  possibility of conquest of that  dread- killer and crippler,  polio, by Dr. Salk's or other  effective vaccine. ,  Our world is constantly  changing but the nature of  men and women remains very  much the* same throughout the  ages.

Would    I  have   died instead   of  you,   O  ' Absalom . my . son,   my   son!"  Men still ask, in the words of  Job,   "If  a man  die, shall he  lave again?" How can men and  women in the face of sorrow  and     questioning,     strengthen  their "most holy faith?"  As parents we want to give  our children ��� the best we can  ��� and surely7 this includes  growing up in a home where  spiritual values count.  Our boys and girls will learn  about religion at church and  Sunday school, but "faith is  something which is caught, not  taught." The greatest religious  influence in a child's life is  usually his home.  There is little point discussing in our family faith in Victory over Death, if these are  empty phrases for us. We are  all busy, fathers, earning a living often feel overburdened  and mothers who also help in  community projects find they  haven't enough hours in the  day.. But if we give priority to  "the means of grace"���-private  prayer. Scripture reading, attendance at church and have a  time in our homes fos family  worsihip, then the seasons of  the year such as Easter will  have deep significance for us  and for our children both now  and in the crisis which come  to every home.

The  long-low-  "raiichy" appearance of the house is emphasized by the continuation of the roof line over the carport, and at the same time cuts  expense in building. The effect of the vertical siding is enhanced  by the use of horizontal siding on the side gable over'the.carport.  ��� Inside the floor -layout shows the always.popular.

For family dining, there is an eating nook in the kitchen, and of course the bedrooms are good, and the bathroom is large enough to accommodate a vanity as well as that standard size fixtures.   As for the size of the house ��� it contains 1196 square feet, is  46' feet wide, with an additional 11' for the carport. Although  the roof line extends over the carport, you could quite easily  build the house without the carport and the appearance of the  house would not suffer, if your lot is not wide enough to take  the overall width of house and carport.

WILSON CREEK  IIIFiniVnK DLIIN VIIAIIiLL  WIS WEEK'S SPECIAL  1  STATION  WAGON  ONE OWNER CAR  $1  B.C. Electric  year good  ,. B.C. Electric had a good year  in 1960, according to the company's annual report, and it  might have been an outstanding year if the economy had  not slackened pace in the latter fhonths of the year, with a  consequent effect on results.  This   falling   off  showed   it-  . self chiefly in the less than ex-  ,.pected   increases   in  the   num-  ber_pf electric and gas custom-  <ers_ and in the average use per  customer.  Company gross revenues, reports Chairman A.�� E. Grauer,  exceeded the hundred million  mark for the first time, at  $103!3 million. This represents  a 6.6 percent increase over  1959 and was nearly sufficient  to offset a 3.1 percent increase  in operating expenses and a 24  percent increase in interest on  long:term debt.  B.C. Power Corporation Ltd.  earnings were down slightly  to $11,197,249 compared to  $11,271,492 in 1959. Since  171,605 shares were issued during 1960, the decline per common share outstanding at year-  end ($2.37 compared to $2.48  the previous year), was proportionately greater.  Quarterly dividend per common share was increased,' during the last quarter of 1960  from 35 to 40 cents bringing  total dividend for ��h<e year to  $1.45 compared to $1.40 in  1959.  Total number -of electric  customers rose to 340,508, a  net increase < of 7,270 during  the year. This increase was less  than expected at beginning of  1959. E.leetric revenue was up  six percent and volume of  power sold by seven percent.  Biggest, gain experienced  during the year showed in gas  sales with gas revenue up 25  ' percent and volume of gas sold  by 32 percent, both below expectations at the start of the  year. ������....-  Number of gas customers at  year-end was 118,731, a net  increase of 10,404. The rail  freight operation carried 1,-  455,000 tons of goods compared to 1,311,000 the previous  year but revenue rose only  slightly, from $4.9 to $5 million, reflecting- a higher proportion of lower-rated tonnage.

' A minstrel show on the Showboat   with banjo,  drums,  accordions   and  some   lively. singing,  including   old   spirituals,   ended  the  evening.  The M.C., Mr. Phil DeLeen-  heer, did a grand job and kept  the program going along at a  fast pace. Mrs. Verna Beck was  program convenor and everyone  helped to make the evening a  success.
