It is a picture of what was left  of the home on Pratt Road occupied by Mr. and. Mrs. Lome Anger  after fire had broken out on Tuesday of last week. This shot was  taken about one hour after the fire had started. The house was owned by Douglas Steele who moved into thhe Fraser Valley area about  one year ago. Total loss, covered by insurance is in vicinity of $12,000.  CF.P. considers  using salvage wood  J. G. Prentice, president of  Canadian Forest Products Ltd.,  announces that the latest expansion program at the company's  Howe Sound Pulp Division has  now been substantially completed at a cost of $7,000,000.  This' expansion increases the  productive capacity of the mill  to 180,000 tons per year of bleached kraft pulp.  The Port Mellon mill was acquired by Canadian Forest Products in 1951 at which time it had  a productive capacity of 140 air  dried tons per day of unbleached kraft pulp only. Major expansion and modernization programs,  in 1955; 1962 and 1964 have in-  crease_L-the-capacity to the present*^'air dried tons per day at  a total cost.in excess of $26,000,-  000 of which ,$23,000,000 has been  spent in the last three years.  The latest construction work,  which commenced a year ago, included the installation of a new  black liquor recovery furnace and  boiler, a new line of unbleached  pulp washers,' major alterations  and additions in the caustidzing,  drying and bleaching departments  and a new line of black liquor  evaporators.  The entire production of the  Port Mellon mill is sold as market pulp, principally in the United States, United Kingdom, continental Europe and Japan.  Since 1951, the Howe Sound  Pulp Division,' which employs 420  persons, has been sustained entirely on chips from, coastal sawmills .including tbfes - company's  Ebyrnfef Saw ]Vfiris Division, but  Mr. TPfentice -stated that^plans  are being considered for the^ installation of a woodroom to utilize salvage wood.  White Cane Week here  "Today it is a common occurrence to see a blind man or woman walking down the street  with a white cane," said Mrs. J.  T. Patterson, president of the  Canadian Council of the. Blind.  "When you meet them on buses,  street cars, trains and airplanes,  you know that these capable people ate sightless and would appreciate a little guidance finding   a   seat  or  locating van  ad-  In her annual message for  White Cane Week, .Feb. 7-13,  sponsored by the CCB and the  Canadian National Institute for  the Blind, Mrs. Patterson pointed out that the white cane has  had a long history.  The white cane as a symbol  of the sightless, was first introduced in 1921 in Bristol, England.  James Biggs, a photographer,  who lost his own sight, thought  up the idea, and found it so successful that he started to tell  people about it. He even wrote to  other countries. Soon, Lions clubs  in Canada and United States became interested.  ���Through the thirties, inventors  produced different types of white  canes. Battery-powered canes,  wheel-equipped canes and others  have all made their appearance  and been, discarded. With, the.  ��� exception of the folding 'variety,  which fits a purse or pocket,5 the  original simple white cane has  proved the most serviceable.  In 1951 strips of reflector tape  were attached to the cane as a  safety measure. The tape .'lights  up brightly in the flash of an  auto light and warns the driver.  "Today you are -so used to  meeting the blind travelling  through traffic that you are apt  to forget that your personal interest is still the chief factor in  their modern , independence,"  Mrs. Patterson said." "For this  reason we have revived an old  theme: Let the White Cane Introduce Us. It is a reminder that  because of your guidance and  friendly words, we who are.blind,  may go about with confidence."  iargrave  presses  for roads  Planning and surveying for a  road around Howe Sound from  Port Mellon to Woodfibre was  urged on the floor of the legislature Wednesday, Feb. 3 by Tony  Gargrave, MLA. He said planning should begin now.  "The first stretch to be built  should be from Woodfibre to  Squamish. This would give access to the residents of Woodfibre to the schools and business  facilitie at ^ Squamish, and help  close the gap around the -sound,  and eliminate the necessity for  an expensive ferry to Woodfibre," he said.  The local MLA said that though  in the summer time the Sechelt  Peninsula had an hourly schedule   on   comfortable   vessels  between  Langdale  and  Horseshoer  Bay, a later service in the evening was required to enable peo- ���  pie to proceed to and from Vancouver  after  attending  business  or theatrical events in that city.  r Mr. Gargrave also urged more  park development on the Sechelt  Peninsula by the minister of recreation.  Mr. Gargrave also said, "The  Skookumchuck at the mouth of  Sechelt Inlet is a tourist attraction of considerable merit. The  tide boils in and out of'the inlet  at high and low tide, creating.  quite a natural phenomenon,"  he said. Improved road access is  required to this area, the MLA  told the legislature.  The local member also said  that paving was required on secondary roads at Roberts Creek  and the area surrounding the village of Gibsons. The population  is increasing, general, .business,  . activity is> increashigj^and>_,the.';  dusT conditions" ifi^the summer  are intolerable,  he  said.  In concluding his legislative  talk during the Throne debate,  Tony Gargrave said that heavy  traffic from Langdale to Powell  River should be re-routed around  the village of Gibsons, and that  the Soames Creek bridge corner  needed widening. He said that  improvements were needed to  highway 101 throughout its length  from Langdale to Powell River,  and re-surfacing is indicated in  some stretches. .:    ; .-...,-.   \  f  The first one million dollar budget, has b6enai?pr,oved by.

The boys were David Hobson, Don Clark, Ritchie Godfrey,  Bill Sneddon, David Mcintosh,  William Kennett, Martin Kiewitz and Lance Ruggles.  In all this excitement four boys  were invested into the pack, Kenny Herrin, John Sleep, Danny  Zueff and Bill Zueff.

Morgan.Thompson and M. Har-  greaves appeared before Sechelt  council on/Wednesday yeyenuig  of last week and sought council's  opinion on the idea. The Kinsmen intend ftp develop: the area  'in'-~- front of the McDermid and  Birley properties which are intersected by the road from the  highway. It is their intention to  put in toilet/facilities and have  a picnic area available. It would  be the v eventual aim of the clubr  to purchase* the property and  keep it for park purposes. y  On motion'.. of Councillors Ben-v,  ner and Lang it was decided to  ask the Kinsmen to present  plans to council. In the mean-  '���"���lime council has approved the  idea in principle.  Martin J; J.

A. B. Campbell of Tyee Airways placed before council by  letter his disapproval of the retention of a leased float for the  landing of airplanes. He argued  it affected air company revenues. Other places to which he  travelled assessed landing fees.  Council argued it would not be  worthwhile to have a landing  charge because it would cost  more to collect than it was  worth. Council however decided  to look into the matter. <;  When financial problems of the  fire department were discussed  Chairman Mrs. C. Johnston was  of the opinion that if the outside areas pulled their proper  weight in fire department financing it would not be left to Sechelt taxpayers to supply needed finances. She was of the  opinion Sechelt should not bear  the total cost of available fire  services which were available  to the entire rural area around  Sechelt. Council decided to take  under consideration the possibility of an extra $500 grant.  Artist to show paintings  OAPO  MEETING  Now that the Old Age Pensioner Organization has obtained official use of the hall at the  Health Centre, the next meeting  of the OAPO will be held there  on Monday, Feb. 15. Each member is requested to bring along a  cup- saucer and spoon.  Another area artist will exhibit works at Vancouver's art  gallery starting Sunday at 2:45  p.m., through to Feb/27.  Kathleen Wells who has lived  in Roberts Creek for the past  seven years and a camper since  1948 will hold her third exclusive  showing of paintings, numbering  about 30 for this exhibition.  Mrs. Wells has been a member  of the Vancouver Art Gallery  since the early 30s belongs to  other art organizations in that  city and has had night school  classes in Gibsons for the last  four or five years. She is noted  particularly for her flower paintings.  Numerous of her paintings are  now hanging in many Vancouver  homes and in Alberta, Saskatchewan, the United States and Australian homes with quite a few  in homes of the Sunshine Coast.  Born in England, Kathleen  Wells has always been interested  in art. She became a student of  the Washington School of Art and  later in Vancouver studied with  Mr. Tyler and Mr. Alexander,  also attending a university course  under Mr. McDonald. As a member of the Vancouver Art Gallery  she has exhibited there. Some  may remember the Palette &  Loom which was organized on a  co-operative basis with Mrs. Mildred Valley Thornton.  Queen's Scouts  to receive badges  Queen's Scouts of First Port  Mellon Scout troop will receive  their Queen's Scout badges from  Mr. C. B. Davies, honorary  president of Mt. Elphinstone District Boy Scouts of Canada at'a  dinner,  Saturday evening.  This dinner which will be held  in the Community hall will honor  the founder of Scouting, Lord  Baden Powell.  Explore feasibility  of expansion  Sechelt blocked on     its    east  . side  by  the  Indian   Reserve  is  looking to the  west  for  expansion purposes.  The idea came forward at the  meeting of council Wednesday  night of last week when fire department finances were under  discussion.  Councillor  Ben Lang  was appointed to check with people in .  West  Sechelt  to  see  what they /  thought of the idea..  At   present   the   only  thought'  under consideration is the feasibility of the idea. There is nothing further than that until Councillor Lang  reports.  Per capita personal income in  Canada rose from $979 in 1950  to $1,734 in 1963.  140   DOGS   NOW  LEGAL  A word to the wise apparently  can be flushed with success in  Gibsons area. Last year the  RCMP gave out about 20 dog  licenses to mid-February. To  date and as a result of a news  item in the Coast News they  have given out 70. Gibsons village clerk, C. F. Gooding also  reports an upsurge in dog  licenses having issued 70 up to  Tuesday  of this week.  ��-iuimnmmnuw��wiurawHnmrarawura��nuunnuinmmunuio Coast News, Feb. 11, 1965.  |    The Untecn Audience y <  tt'fi%V &'>&$��� "������^���AWMW'CM-.-C  CR��AM WITH  TS_?

One million dollars  What a lot of money one million dollars, is when you do not happen to have that much lying around. And when you do have that million dollars written down on paper to play around with and find out  you have so many fixed expenses which, will take away most of that  million dollars, what is left is, to use an expression, just chickenfeed  instead of a million dollars.  That is just about the position Sechelt District School board finds  itself. The present school board budget is for $1,047,497 and of that  /amount $775,814, or more than 75 percent of that one million dollars  covers fixed expenses control of which is pretty well out of the hands  of school boards.  Then there are the usual costs over which the board has control  but cannot do much about reducing, such as school bus and boat  transportation, fuel, light and water, building repairs and maintenance which for 1965 will total about $194,000. Add this figure to the  $775,814 fixed expenses and you will find Sechelt District School board  has about $77,000 left or about 7 percent of the budget over which it  will have complete control to spend or not to spend.  So when you think of the.school board and one ;million dollars  keep.your emotions under contrpKbecause each;school board sets up  problems for the next school board to tackle. With such a heavy financial load to carry due to past and present commitments, departments where a budget can be reduced drastically are practically  non-existent. Also with education department officials in Victoria  looking over "the shoulders of school board intently and the, purse  strings drawn quite tightly by the same officials there are more  pleasant jobs in this world other than being a school trustee.  A co-operative effort!  Sechelt municipal council's plan to explore the feasibility of expanding its boundaries to take in West Sechelt is a worthwhile project  because some day the village will have to expand. Municipal department officials in Victoria are advising any municipality which desires to expand to do so in a big way instead of taking in bits and  pieces as it goes along.  Gibsons has also under consideration a plan which is comparable to that to be undertaken by Sechelt. Both municipalities could  work hand in hand in the matter of procedure because the experience  of one municipality will be that of the other. Such advice could also  be given to the two fire departments which are considering forming  fire protection districts. Then there will be the next step, formation  of water districts.  A great deal of paper work could be done away with if each area  formed a committee which could work with other committees on a  similar project. It would also acquaint Victoria government officials  with a clear-<cut fact that the Sunshine Coast area intends to get itself organized through co-operative methods.  It is a suggestion which can be mulled over and probably lead  towards formation bf what the area requires, a district water board.  It will have to come. Now could be the best time to lay the groundwork through co-operation in area projects. Such experience would  be of great value later on.  Two points of view  About the time Calvin Coolidge was president of the United States  a political cartoonist depicted the Democrat donkey peering through  a keyhole into a Republican meeting room and not being satisfied  with what he saw said "Something's wrong! Tain't right!"  Premier Bennett's budget, "bigger and better" than ever in  which he boasts of a $35,000,000 surplus and the "dynamic" approach  to things generally in British Columbia, reveals one view of B.C. events.  Another view has various members of the government party  standing up in the legislature and expressing opinions which are at  variance with official policy. There are also the municipalities, school  boards and hospitals who also are not imbued with the "dynamic"  tinge the premier is casting about with carefree abandon. ,  Perhaps the cartoonist of some 30 years ago with his "Something's wrong! Tain't right!" caption was faced with a similar situation and felt that it was about the only way he could describe his feelings. It seems to have some validity today in B.C.  Gems of Thought  "GIFTS OF SPRING"  Many and beautiful are the  gifts of spring, not the least of  which is the silent suggestion of  the omnipotence of life. ��� Sam  Campbell  Spring passes over mountain  and meadow, waking up the  world.���Mary Baker Eddy  Spring unlocks the flowers to  paint the laughing soil. ��� Reg-  inal Heber  Spring hangs her infant blossoms on the trees, rocked in the  cradle of the western breeze.  ���William Cowper  June reared that bunch of  flowers you carry,  From seeds of April's sowing.  ���Robert Browning  Janiiai*y\31   By a..-j.m  January 31 is a most welcome  date: it is fair enough to. "Sigh  amongst the hollyhocks for the  summer flown" if one feels that  -way about it, but only a glutton  for punishment would mourn the  passing of the least pleasant  month of the year.  The ancients saw it as a month  that" looks both ways,'back to a  summer that was and forward  to one yet to be and having  named Janus as "its deity they  showed him on their carvings  as having two heads ��� suitably  grim!  We too look back, at least  enough to remember that a fine  day even in December will bring  a faint fragrance, lingering from  the brighter months that preceded it, and forward to February,  a winter month that is also the  month of hope, hope of the  lengthening days, of the snowdrop, the crocus and the violet,  with the polyanthus and other  members of the primula group  rousing from their period of rest  bringing a lift to the heart of  man.  Man transcends nature in  many ways today but he is still  part of it and if he loses his  unity with it through his doings  he may find the price of his in-  ,genuity too high. So, as the trib-  ' ulation of January slowly passes it is good for him to look  around once in a while at what  Ruskin called "the earth veil,"  the kindly covering of plant,  shrub and .tree that is' between  us and the surface of a planet  of stone and iron that would  otherwise be uninhabitable;  those rooted things are alive as  we are but they can speak only  to those who have ears to hear.  Consider the alders, the most  precocious of all our trees that  can reproduce their kind at four  years or so' from their own  seedling year; with snow still  deep over the roots the immature blossom ��� buds are slowly  lengthening, with the days and  showing the first hint of red,  while the tightly packed leaf  buds wait in serene certainty  sunshine  and soft  spring rains.  ."/ forgot my wallet but I should be able to find a bit of  change here some placet"  ^  N.

Eventually we  could also see a shake-down taking place in costs and prices all  across Canada.

Coast-Capilano Constituency  The Canadian economy will receive another lift later this year.  I am referring to the boost which  it is bound to receive from the.  establishment of a little Common  Market' on this continent with respect to automobile products..    ���',*-',  The new tariff arrangement,  signed early in January by Prime  Minister Pearson and President  Johnson, breaks new ground. It  also marks an important achievement so far as Canada's new Department of Industry, is concern-���  ed.  The precedent-shattering agreement on automotive products will  mean many new jobs for Canadians. It could even add more to  our overall Canadian output, export volume and new capital investments in plant and equipment, than in any other development en Canada's trading front  in the past decade.  The agreement, in its simplest  terms, calls for the removal of  tariffs  on  cars,  trucks  and original parts between Canada and  the United States. It also com- i  mits Canadian manufacturers to \  operate in such a way as to ex- j  ploitthe opportunities of reduc-}  ing costs. From now on they will '\  be able to sell all over the contin- \  ent ��� not just in Canada as here- :  tofore. \  The plan is expected to create ���  many new factories. Perhaps. as  much as $300 million ... will be  spent on new plants, and equipment. This will be needed in order to achieve the one-third increase in Canadian automotive;  production by mid-1967. This in-1  crease, furthermore, will be in  addition to normal growth. Canada at the moment buys nearly  8% of the vehicles and parts sold  in North America; yet it produces only about 4%. The government's new plan will gradually  bring this percentage into balance.  The expected increase in pro-/  duction will also provide tens of \  thousands of new jobs. In other  words, free trade between Can-;  ada   and   the   United   States   in  automobiles   and   parts   will   go  part way at least towards meeting the National Economic Council's objective of finding 1.5 million new jobs in Canada by 1970.  The new automotive agreement;  will have its most immediate '������  impact on those parts of the  country where the industry is  concentrated, namely, southern  Ontario, Montreal and Halifax.  But there will be other benefits,  especially in the longer run. More  raw and semi-processed materials will be required. More tax  revenue' will be generated. And  the price of cars and trucks will  begin to fall. Eventually, they  will come into line with those be-  .ing charged at the retail level in  neighboring areas in the United  States.  The new automotive agreement  could be important in another  way. It may create a precedent  for other agreements involving  other  industrial  products.

For they do not expectorate, but attempt to swallow and inhale them into the lungs.  Teach them to spit anything out.  Do not stimulate a child to laugh or cry while  food is in his mouth. Physicians advise it is  not wise to reach into an infant's mouth to remove an impacted foreign object. Place the  victim face down across a bed or chair and  , call a physician. For choking is the leading  cause of accidental death in the home to children under five.  Your doctor can phone us when you need a  medicine.

What  do  you  and  your  children do for them?  The attitude of the mother and  father to the grandparent is  very important. A child senses,  without hearing any words,  whether or not-there is love and  trust in the relationship between  his elders.  Parents are often greatly indebted to a grandmother who  helps out on the ever present  "baby-sitter" problem. At the  same time, much as mother and.  dad appreciate freedom from the  responsibility of looking after  their children for a short time,  grandparents should not be imposed on. They have had their  turn in raising a family, they  are older now and should not be  left with small youngsters for  long periods of time.

No more nicks...  good deal of conflict; if she will  talk over with a grandparent  her doctor's ideas on child raising, such as/"Candy after meals,  because sweets before eating  take away the child's appetite."  Grandparents are usually reasonable if they know exactly  what are Jhe most important  rules which are being followed  in a child's routine. They can  see that not only mother and  father, but all the adults who  care for a child should stick to  the same general pattern. It is  confusing for a child to have  different regulations when different people are minding him.  At the same time a schedule  should b_ a bit. flexible to allow  for special occasions.  There is one place where  grandparents have an advantage  over father or mother. Usually  they have a good deal more  leisure than a parent. There is  frequently a very fine bond between a child and a grandparent.  They ; enjoy, each other's com-  : panyl Grandma and grandpa  greatly enrich a small child's  life when they read, sing, tell  stories, play building blocks or  go for a walk with him.  If a grandparent has a warm  bond with an older grandchild,  and restrains, the impulse to sit  in.; judgment or give unasked advice, the adolescent may often  seek the grandparents iny order  to have someone to discuss, problems or worries. Just to be "a  listening ear" is a ,very great  service,   especially to youth.  How many adults have fond  memories of good times with a ;  grandparent! How much " poorer  their childhood would have been  if a grandmother or grandfather  had not been, generous in countless ways!

Bennett, minister of finance, province of British Columbia, presented the 13th  budget of his administration on  Friday, Feb. 5.  y He referred to tne budget as  truly dynamic and forecast record net expenditures of $446,001,-  000 for the fiscal year 1965/66.  Mr. Bennett pointed out this was  over $50,000,000 more than the  previous year and demonstrated  great confidence in the future of  British Columbia. The budget, in  ..eluding all capital expenditures,  is completely balanced by anticipated revenues of $447,227,000.  Highlights of the budget are:  1. A record annual increase in  'budgeted expenditures for provincial services to the public of  more than $50,000,000.  2. Home-owner grant raised  from $85 in 1964 to $10.0 in 1965.  The minister pointed out the  grant now totals $32,830,000 and  reduces home-owners' taxes by  that amount.  3. Exemptions provided under  Succession Duty act. of $20,000  for a family home and $10,000 for  life insurance over and above  present exemptions, y ���.  4. No increase in tax rates proposed for citizens or industry.  Reductions to home-owner taxes  and succession duties,.total about  $10,000,000 next year.V  The minister reported the reductions in electrical and gas  rates introduced on April ,1, 1964,  by the British Cplumlbia Hydro  and Power Authority resulted in  savings to customers of $13.2 mil-  GIBSONS PUBLIC LIBRARY  Winn Road  '    ' OPEN^^x  Tuesdays 2 to 4 p.m.  Fridays 7 to 9 p.m.  Saturdays 2. to 4 p.m.  lion and that cumulative savings  to: Dec. 31, 1964 were $27.5 million. He stated further reductions  would follow.  6. A new medical grants plan  introduced to assist those of modest income.  7. $15,400,000 more provided the  education department for education expenditures at all levels.  8. $12,541,000 more provided for  public and metal health, welfare  and hospital insurance departments, including $6,000,000 for  medical grants.  9. $5,143,000 more provided the  department of highways.  10. $1,694,000 more provided for  rehabilitation and probation and  correction services.  11. $1,187,000 more provided for  recreation and parks.  12. $3,730,000 more provided for  Civil Service salaries.  Mr. Bennett pointed out that  these benefits, and many more,  result from the adherence by the  administration over the past 13  years -to basic financial, economic and social policies to develop  rapidly provincial resources and  increase employment.  ���-.. The minister estimated that on  March 31, 1965, the accrued revenue surplus of the province  would be $36,500,000 and outlned  how important it was to the people, .of the province to maintain  an  adequate surplus.  Mr. Bennett reported in detail  on the Peace and Columbia River hydro-electric projects and  stressedpthat these .major installations will transform the scale  and diversity of economic activity in this province.  Up-to-date reports were given  on the three Crown Corporations  ��� the British Columbia Hydro  and Power Authority, the Pacific  Great Eastern Railway and the  British Columbia Ferry Authority  Mr. Bennett outlined that not only  do these provincial corporations  provide abundant hydro-electric  energy and efficient rail and wa  ter transport, but equally important, they implement the administration's policies to develop natural resources and thereby enlarge provincial income and employment.  The minister stated that British  Columbia was now launched on  the most firmly based and well  rounded industrial, educational  and cultural development in its  history and concluded his address with these words: "British Columbia is now a truly dynamic society. Our financial  structure is secure; our resources are abundant; pur people are  skillful and productive. Let us  move forward to the greatest period in our history."  Additional dial equipment, cables and long distance facilities  will be added by B.C. Telephone  Company on the North Shore, Sechelt Peninsula and West Howe  Sound areas at a cost of approximately $1,200,000 during 1965.  Outlining construction plans,  E. R. Boyce, company district  manager, said that projects will  be undertaken in all 13 central  office areas in his district.  "Scheduled  projects  will  total  about $280,000 in the North Vancouver  area  and  about  $287,000  in the West Vancouver area," he/  said.  All areas in the district will  have more cables for local distribution facilities and about half  the (central offices will have additional dial equipment installed.  Boyce said that equipment in  stallations will be made at Deep  Cove, S*quamish, Gibsons, Sechelt, Whytecliff, Nox-th .Vancouver and West Vancouver.  .

WILDLIFE  MISCELLANY  Why can a sqii'rrel run down  a tree headfirst while a cat has  to come down backwards? A  squirrel is what v/e often call  double-iointed. It can turn its  feet right around so fhey point  towards its tail. You c?n see this  if you watch one coming down  headfirst. Most other climbing  animals, such as cats, coons,  porcupines and boars, can't do  this and have to back down.  SCOn'S SCRAP BOOK  By R. J. SCOn'  V/KKER-WORK.AHD Pl'f.ri, ARE CAPABLE.

Editor: In your issue dated  Dec. 17, there is a letter about  the way the drug store is robbing  the people by exorbitant charges  As I had to go to Vancouver on  Sat., Jan. 30, I took the opportunity of purchasing two items  to compare prices with the local  drug store.  One was a small bottle of pills.  I bought it from what is rated as  one of the lowest price drug  stores in Vancouver. The pharmacist who. sold it to me asked  me what I had been paying for  the 30 little pills and I told him  I thought it was 69c plus tax, so,  in order to sell at a. lower price '  .he only charged me 59c plus tax.  I bought a small bottle of the  same pills, 30 in the bottle, at-  the Sunnycrest branch of the local drug store on" Thurs., Feb. 4  for only 39c and tax.  Secondly, I bought a small supply ' of another kind of tablet in  the drug department of one of  large departmental stores in  Vancouver. It cost me $1.09. I  priced this at the main store in  Gibsons and the price there is  $1.09. Where is all this high  priced talk coming from?  I happen to have an advantage  regarding drug stores, one of my  brothers had a big store in Calgary 50 years ago and later came  to Lethbridge and opened a lovely store. I used to help him and  learned quite a lot about drugs  and drug prices. In June 1918 I  was sent to Ottawa by the receiver I was working for, to take  charge of the largest ���departmental store there in which there  was a very large drug department. It was only one of the 36  departments in the store but I  learned a lot about drugs and  drugstores   there.  Later still I was sent to Iroquois Falls in Northern Ontario  in 1934 to take charge of the two  company stores and commissaries.. The store at Iroquois Falls  had a drug department so here  again I had to use my knowledge  about drugs even though not a  pharmacist.  I ask those local people who  complain about prices to think  this over and try the same system I did to make a fair comparison  regarding prices.  B. L. Cope.  OaORO PUZZLE  LAST WEEKS  ANSWER j.  Most housewives know that  when it coh.es to cooking a beef  roast, lower temperatures over  a longer period of time usually  { produce the most satisfactory results, particularly when it's not  top grade beef or if it happens -.  to be one of the less tender cuts.  In some cases; however, a  roast of beef can be cooked at  too low a temperature and for  too long a time, notes the Meal  Packers Council of Canada.  In one cooking test involving  Choice round roasts, it was  found that a slow temperature of  between 200 degrees and 250 degrees F., required a longer  cooking time and resulted in the  meat being dry and hard to slice,  especially if it were cooked to  the well-done stage. Considerable juice was lost and the total  yield of the roast was significantly decreased. The difference was  not quite as noticeable when the  meat was cooked to the rare or  medium stage.  There was no appreciable difference in the tenderness of the  meat indicating that it was basically tender to start with.  When a temperature of 300 degrees F., was used, the test  showed that all roasts yielded  about the same regardless of  whether they were cooked rare,  medium, or well-done. On a per  pound basis, larger roasts' yielded a little higher than smaller,  roasts.  Since beef is generally considered rare when the internal  temperature of the meat reaches  about 140 degrees F. (175 degrees F. for well-done), total  length of cooking time is an important factor. At    lower    oven  temperatures, the roaist takes  longer to cook and while this  may be helpful for less tender  cuts, it has little advantage for  the naturally tender beef cuts of  top grade quality.  When making out your shopping list, remember that 1 pound  of cooked or canned fish yields  2 cups of flaked, cooked meat,  advise the home "economists of  the. Department of Fisheries of  Canada.

As a lawyer, I am often confronted by our unjust divorce  laws in; this country. The situation is further, aggravated by;'the;  ten separate judicial jurisdictions  we have in Canada. An aggrieved and deserted wife must be  careful where she starts her divorce action, in ease that court  has no jurisdiction to hear her  The parliament of Canada has  been afraid to move in this area  because of possible religious and  geographical opposition to such  reform. Frankly, I believe these  obstacles have been overstated.  Most of the inexcusable delay  in reform is the result of our federal house not having the courage/to grapple withy the problem.  Though there may be disagreement as to the degree or amount  of divorce reform needed, certainly the parliament of Canada  should begin in'this area of reform.  Another point is that the public   are   disillusioned   over   the  SMALLTALK  ,\y. =.. .yyypip^m^m  *&^yyy, :&;??<Z'i^$&i&m  y;yi'<y^fy��^$teM  By Syms  <^';'^y  i- -"    x ?vv;^*�� iWP*&f  < *- <v. -y ���,, ^y y ,:,*jr,-/, ,yv^  '   -_. *fr*Z ��  fyg&zK, \-yyy,  'hP'��  plea.
