Array ?i .V.  ��-���-- '  PR0VI8CM&;LfBfUlrlY ���  VICTORIA  if  By W. Sutherland  HALF MOON BAY��� Half  Moon Bay has been very unfortunate in the matter of the  voters' list for the coming election. Changes in population due  to various causes such as movement during the war, change of  occupation, etc., have resulted  in some fifty names being deleted from the old list. These  would naturally be replaced by  newcomers to the district, but  the time of registration seemed  very short, there was no voters'  list on display,. and human nature is always prone to believe  that putting it off till tomorrow  isn't a bad idea.  However, in a scattered district where transportation is  difficult and means of communication scarce, and when  the matter at issue is as important as a provincial vote,  putting it off is not a good policy. Even at that, though, all  would have been well had there  not been a shortage of registration forms.   \  The arrival of Mr. W. J. Uz-  zell, registrar of voters, on the  morning of September 14th provided the necessary forms, but  left little time to have the registration completed so that returns could be made to Powell  River in time. Mr. Ted Osborne  of the Osborne Logging Co. at  Narrows Arm; was in Half  Moon Bay the morning of the  14th also, to obtain the necessary registration forms for  the men in his camp, and some  doubt was expressed that these  could be completed and re-  . turned in time as there was  %only one full day before the re-  RiVer; Ted r^s n^ard "tb rW  y mark to Mr, TJzzell that there  would be hell a'popping if he  didn't get his men registered in  time.  - It looked for a time as though  the list would be incomplete,  as some twenty people were  still not heard from. However,  Mr. Tom Beasley undertook to  notify the delinquents, who will  just be able to get under the  wire, and enough interest has  been taken in % the rftktter to  a full r%isii��tibn.

H. TAIT  60TH  HALF MOON BAY���Congratulations are in order to Mr. T.  H. Tait, who celebrated his 60th *  birthday on Thusday, September 13th: Mr. Tait is a real old-  timer here, settling permanently some fifteen years ago after  many years as a summer visitor. Before coming to Half  Moon Bay to live, Mr. Tait was  manager for the E. C. Atkins  Saw Co. at Vancouver, and he  now operates a taxi business  here.  The birthday ^celebration was  in the nature of a family party,  as two married daughters, Mrs. ��  T. H. Beasley and Mrs. Wm.  Mervyn, and three fine grandsons, also live here. Mr. Tait  states that he's still hale and  .hearty, with a fine pair of lungs,  as he not only blew out all the  candles on his birthday cake,  but blew all the nuts off as  well.  NEW TEACHERS  SECHELT���Recently appointed  to the teaching^ staff at Sechelt Consolidated School are  Mrs. Jay and Mr. Bissonette. .  We welcome them and hope  they will enjoy their stay here.  One little girl did not get to  school with the rest of the  gang���Genevieve Wood, who  was quite ill at the beginning  of the term. We hope she will  soon be back.  Wrens V hit Sechelt .. .  The Royal Canadian Navy's corvette,. HMCS Nanaimo,  ���visited Sechelt on the Wren's birthday cruise August 29,  an event which celebrated the third anniversary of the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service. In the photos above,  the Wrens are seen as they went ashore to enjoy seyeral  hours of fishing, swimming- and baseball. In the top picture  are Lieut. Elizabeth Fisher and Lieut. Josephine Barring-  ton, both of Toronto, on the Nanaimo's signal bridge. (See  story in last week's Coast News).  Community Support Wanted  Sechelt improvement Assn  Hears University Speaker  SECHELT���Miss Lin Brown of  the Extension Department of  the University of British Columbia was the guest speaker  at the last regular meeting of  the Sechelt Improvement Society, of which Mr. A. L. Jackson is president and Mrs. M.  Jackson secretary. Mr. Jackson  was unable to attend the meeting, and Mr. McKay was the  pro-tem chairman.  Miss Brown is a very pleasing speaker, and she outlined  the aims and objects of the B.C.  Credit Union, of which she is  the official representative, and  stressed particularly the opportunities of building up the community life by co-operatives  as well as spoke of the many  schemes on hand, such as cooperative building, co-operative  stores    and    canneries:    Many  fejqfj^tio^  ������  Iqiiestion- penoctXfoy theXm&tii-  bers, and Mr. W. Berry, president   of    the   Roberts   Creek  &fe  Credit Union, explained briefly  the functioning of that organization.  Miss Brown also told the  meeting of the various services  of the Extension Department,  such as film showings at nominal rental, and various courses  which can be h/id for the asking.  The Society is to be congratulated on its efforts to improve  the community. Some of the  items which have been on the  agenda are an adequate water,  supply for Sechelt West and  Selma Park; improved telephone system; suitable waiting  room for passengers going away  on the Union boats; bulletin  board for local use; and proposed rural mail delivery. Mr.  Jackson and Leslie are working  -very hard for- the -public goody  and it is only fair that the rate4  payers should get out to meeting and support them.  Communications Helped Valley  Kleindale District Shows  ninsula Growth  KLEINDALE���The district of  Kleindale, which is a part of  Enterprise Valley and adjacent  to the Pender Harbour district,  has grown during the past few  MANY VISITORS  LEAVE SECHELT  FOR CITY HOMES  SECHELT���We have said goodbye for another year to some  of our summer friends���Mrs.  A. A. Shaw and family, Mr.  and Mrs. Tony Power and  family, Archbishop and Mrs.  DePencier and family, Mrs.  Vaughn and family, and Mrs.  McQuillian and baby daughter.  We do see His Grace and his  good lady once in a while during the winter���it was through  His Grace that the little church  of St. Hilda's was given to the  community. We also said goodbye to the Yellowlees, Mrs.  Grimmett and Joan and Mary.  Mrs. Whittall and family, and  many others.  Sechelt misses its friends,  but we are not quite alone as  the Sechelt Inn, Glendalough  and Rockwood Lodge still have  guests staying. We expect our  usual September friends soon  ���those who come to enjoy the  beautiful autumn trails and the  fishing.  years into a thriving community.  An important factor, responsible to a great extent for this  progress, was the extension of  the government highway several years ago from Half Moon  Bay to Irvine's Landing. This  achievement made possible the  inauguration of a semi-weekljr  bus service from Hopkin's  Landing to Garden Bay, and a  shotr time ago freight service  from Half Moon Bay to Irvine's  Landing was  established.  Years ago, the pioneers of  this valley worked under adverse conditions. They logged  off the land, built their homes,  and brought the soil under cultivation.  Today, upon entering Kleindale, one is impressed by the  low, flat lands of the valley,  upon whicti may be seen goodly numbers of cattle and sheep.  The black loam yields abundant crops of vegetables, and  fields of grain are seen here  and there.  Kleindael can well boast of  its oyster beds. These oysters,  famous for their superior quality, find ready markets in the  cities and elsewhere.  Logging and mining are popular activities in the settlement.  Along the whole length of the  valley runs a chain in high hills,  over whose slopes stands the  evergreen forest, tall and close,  save where old fire scars show  ghostly fingers pointing upward through the^ second growth  of trees.

Beyondthese elemental facts  is one that reaches farther still  into the scene of the country  child's life. A feeling of independence!

Maybe a  lot of mothers and fathers remember a time when they  started down these same roads  ... remember their own feelings, as they stand and watch  the younger generation go out  through the gate into the new  big world.  School days bring to mind  the plight of a small boy as he  started out with all the unspoiled confidence of a young  child.

Perry,  Minister of - Education and  Chairman of the Post-War  Bureau Cabinet committee, issued the first bulletin dealing  with opportunities available  throughout the Province for returning   veterans.  The    survey,   crystallized   in  this bulletin,  shows that there  are 2,000 small business enterprises in British Columbia for  !    returning veterans.  HOPE-PRINCETON ROAD  With survey work drawing  io a close, it is expected that  tenders for the construction of  the Hope-Princeton Highway to  provide the southern Okanagan  with a highway to the coast,  will be called within the next  few weeks, it was announced  by the Hon. Herbert Anscomb,  Minister of Public Works.  The road will be 88 miles in  length and it is expected that  work will commence before the  end of the year. The survey is  expected to be completed this  month.  The original estimated cost  of $2,600,000 for this highway  is expected to be exceeded when  the survey reports are in and  tenders invited.  AGENTS MEETING  Inauguration    of   an   annual  conference of Government Agents took place in Victoria last  week when Premier John Hart,  as Minister   of Finance,   called  together     Government    Agents  from all over the Province   to  .convene in the Capital and dis-  U cuss uroblems affecting admin-  h istration and public service.

Perhaps they were even a little more daring. At  least Nalli was.  'Nalli was a regular visitor  to the camp where my father  worked, calling every- day. He  was too smart for the traps the  men set, and he could smell a  gun a mile   away.   His   visits  went on for weeks, and the men  were getting pretty  frantic.  "One night they came in out  of the woods to find all the  camp meat gone���every scrap.  This time they were mad, and  they went on the hunt for Mr.  Nalli, but he was nowhere to be  found. Finally, tired and hungry, they went to the bunkhouse to wash up and prepare  for the slim supper the cook  had managed to scrape up.  "Then they found Nalli. He  was sound asleep in my father's bunk!  "Did they get him?  "The bearskin rug in our  home was provided by .Nalli!"

The Australian Airmen Incident  X'  Under the Empire Air Training Plan thousands of young men  from Australia and New Zealand have come to Canada. One  large group arriving by boat at San Francisco came up to a  Canadian Pacific coast terminus by train. No official mention  was made of their expected arrival or time of departure, yet  on both occasions groups of the Australians' relatives and friends  assembled at the depot to greet them.  How Did They Know?  No newspaper had carried a line about these Australians.  Security Officers had taken every precaution to keep the information secret. But well-meaning relatives, having inside  information, have talked out of turn. The enemy, whose agents  are everywhere, could thus have gained valuable information as  to numbers and disposition of our air trainees.  ,,,v_fe��V^��#��e @adbte  /  PUBLISHED     IN     THE     INTEREST     OF  ATIONAE.

T"lill IIHIIII  Commencing Sunday, September 23rd, services will be  in the afternoon at St. John's  Interdenominational Church.  Sunday School will be at 2.15  and Church at 3 o'clock. Communion will be the first Sunday of each month at the regular  3   o'clock  church service.  The gardens of Mr. and Mrs.  A. S. Baird and Mr. Archie Innes are attracting much attention for their artistic plan and  their variety of bloom and color. They are woth the hike "up  the hill".  Another pleasing sight is a  tree of red winter apples on  the Davis place at the point.  Residents are hauling and  digging in seaweed, a wealth of  which was brought ashore by  the tide last week. Two or three  persons have started planting  out the new strawberry plants.  These will bear in June.  Mr. and Mrs. Frank C. Smith  of Vancouver were guests of  Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Baird last  week.  At the Davis summer home  are Miss A. Davis and brother.  Mr. Lawrence Davis, both of  Burnaby, a cousin, Mr. Frank  Bard, and his friend Joe, both  of Vancouver, and Mr. S. Novak  of Vancouver.  Mrs. C. P. Ashmore of Bra-  lorne, B. C, sister-in-law of  Mrs. A. Cauley, was a guest  of Mr. and Mrs. Cauley at Sunset Inn last week.  Vtr. and Mrs. W. E. Brewer  have returned after two weeks  in the city. Pervious to their  tr.ip they had as their guest  their daughter, Miss Marie *E.  Brewer, a conductorette in  Vancouver.  Davis Bav residents welcome  Mr. and Mrs. F. Huggins of  Vancouver, who have moved  into their new home on the sea  front.  The greatest activity of the  week has been the salmon fishing. The "Pride W" and the  "Kerry W" fished in the bay  for several days. Two troilers  were also active, and one or  two cod boatsi Residents have  also had good fishing, and salmon canning has been going on  in most households. Residents  along the beach were treated to  some fine flounder by the commercial boats when they took  in their nets. Watching the crew  let out and take in their nets  is fascinating. It requires skill  and timing as well as muscle  and agility. One feels the men  have earned their haul, and  wishes them a good season.  Mrs. A. S. Baird sent a copy  of "The Coast News" to Mrs.  E. Nash at* Bermuda, who has  not occupied her cottage here  for some five years. She hopes  to be here next year. The cony  sent was the one, with the picture of the 35-passenger bus.  BOATS DAMAGED  GRANTHAM'S LANDING���  The Squamish the other day  did considerable damage in  West Howe Sound. Around  Grantham's a number of small  boats broke their moorings  and were washed ashore, the  put-puts owned by Miss Mary  Donald and Mr. Mellot being  among them.  WILLIAM M. BIRKS of Montreal.  National Chairman of the National  Clothing Collection for liberated  Countries. The collection, sponsored by the Canadian United Allied  Relief Fund on behalf of UNRRA,  will be held from October 1st to  the 20th, when it is planned to give  Canadians an opportunity to bring  comfort to the suffering millions  in Europe by making this clothing  collection their personal business.  Canadians will be  asked  to give  only such serviceable used ^clothes  as they can spare without replacement.  The garments will be distributed  free  to the  people  of the  war-ravaged Allied countries under  the direction of UNRRA experts.  Committees will carry on the good  work in every Canadian Community.  HALF MOON BAY  W. Sutherland, Correspondent  Visiting Mr. and Mrs. Frank  Claydon at present are Mr. and  Mrs. W. D. Smith from Forrest,  Ontario, and Mrs. Hannan from  Victoria. Mrs. Smith and Mrs.  Hannan are sisters of Mrs.  Claydon, and this is the first  time the three have been together for some thirty years.  Also visiting them is their son  Ray, on vacation from the Bar  C Ouest Ranch at Kamloops.  In conversation with Mr. Ray  Claydon, who appears to enjoy  his occupation very much, he  mentioned a development in  cattle-raising which might be  of interest to our local farmers.  In the Fraser Valley, Mr. Claydon said, they are inoculating  cows once in the normal gestation period, at the end of  which time the cows come into  full flow of milk without calving. He was also informed that  a'young steer was so inoculated,  with the result that the udder  developed to such an extent  that it appeared "he" was going to produce a calf, which  would be a very fine thing in  these days of meat rationing!  Mr. and Mrs. John Reston of  Vancouver are visiting at Welcome Beach, where they own  property. Mr. Reston is on army  leave.  Mr. and Mrs. Robert Burns,  formerly of Assiniboia, Sask.,  have moved into the home they  recently purchased at Welcome  Beach.  eQuiar  o  ovies Return  oon Day  HALF MOON BAY���The first  regular weekly entertainment  for a considerable time took  place in Cormack's Hall on  Wednesday last when Mr. H.  Greig, of the Pacific Mobile  Movies, brought a picture show  has recently retuned after five  years' war service, and is now  to Half Moon Bay. Mr. Greig  undertaking to provide amuse-  *ment to the circuit comprising  Sechelt, Half Moon Bay and Irvine's Landing. The show was  well-attended, and Mr. Greig  promises good entertainment in  the weeks to come.  Not every attempt at motion  picture displays has met with  unalloyed success in Half Moon  Bay.   Many   of  the   old-timers  will recall that some years ago  a  naval patrol "boat  called in  here with a very fine showing  of war pictures, and everyone  who could possibly manage to  do so attended. Something serious had gone wrong with the  sound track, however, and the  result was rather confusing^ especially   when  obviously   German  troops   would   appear   in  what  we had thought to be a  truly   English   countryside,   or'  when an English city would apparently begin  to sprout German  signs.   The Navy worked*  hard,  and  promised  to return  with the sound track in order,  BUCKET BRIGADE  FIGHTS WHARF FIRE  DAVIS BAY���What might have  resulted in serious damage  was averted by quick action of  many with buckets of water at  noon on Sunday of Labor Day  week-end.  A fire broke out in the piling at the outer corner of the  wharf. It was put out after a  half-hour of energetic work.  The source is unknown, but  cigarette smoking was noticed  there" shortly before the blaze  was seen. ��  ANNOUNCING ...  Tsawcome Garage  & Welding Co. Ltd.  >   WILSON CREEK, B. C.

C., September 19, 1945  HELP THE SALLY ANN DRIVE  THIS IS the first time The Coast News has had  an opportunity to appeal to its readers on  a public drive for funds, and we accept it with  confidence and alacrity.  The Salvation Army Home Front Appeal  takes place during the next two weeks, and it  is with the idea and the hope that we may be  of service to this great work and to you that  -we have arranged for donations to be collected  throughout the peninsula area.  The Sally Ann is truly the Outstretched  Hand to a suffering humanity. It reaches everywhere and knows no barriers. In wartime  it was with our boys wherever they went and  wherever there was need, and there can be  found no stauncher boosters for the Salvation  Army than an overseas  serviceman.  In peacetime, the task of the Sally Ann is  not lessened.     Wherever there    is    suffering,  from the very young to the very old, there you.  will find the Army dbihg what you would do  "if you were there."      '  All this, marvellous organization takes  money���a lot. of money. Our gifts must not be  lessened because we are no longer at war, for  the Salvation Army is essentially a peace-time  organization.  Peninsula residents may give their donations to the local correspondent for The News  or to their postmaster; or they may mail it  direct to John Mclntyre, chairman of the lower coast district, at Powell River. An official  receipt will be sent to you promptly.  Give generously to this Sally Ann appeal,  remembering the Master's words���-Inasmuch  as you have done it unto the least of these, you  have done it unto Me.  POOR MANOEUVERING  OF ALL the wartime restrictions we have had  to endure, next to the provincial liquor  situation, the government's resumption of meat  rationing recently is perhaps the most unpopular. There has been a strong suspicion  afoot that the second rationing order was intended only as a sop to the already-rationed  United States, and that country's announcement that the order may be removed shortly  has many persons asking why Canada must  suffer it again.  Few people, least of all we in the coast area,  are in a position to judge the over-all meat  situation-in Canada. We have never yet refuse *  to recognize our obligations to England and  the peoples of Europe with regard to feeding  and sheltering them during the reconstruction  period. But we also feel that this is a mutual  responsibility of all the United Nations, arid  there is little doubt that the U.S. cancellation  of Lend-Lease conditions has resulted in a situation which places an unfair burden on the  rest of the countries involved, with Canada in  the front rank.  If meat rationing is really necessary, then  Canadians will endure it with comparatively  little resentment. But the government has  made a sorry mess of explaining the position  to the people, and its continued lack of such  action only serves to aggravate the growing  opinion that it is  entirely unnecessary.  THANKS OF A NATION  THE Canadian Red Cross, having enough serum on hand to meet military and civilian  needs for another six months at least, has  closed down its blood donor services and  brought to an end one of the most impressive  and useful wartime voluntary projects. It is  possible, it is stated; that1 ay peacetime service  of this sort will be established, but this awaits  the decision  of the national executive.  Meanwhile  it is possible to take stock of  the work   that has been done, although it is  difficult to estimate its value. Tens of thous- .  ands  of lives have been saved by the availability  of blood serum.  Credit for this goes first of all to the or- '  ga'nization set up by the Red Cross and to the  loyalty and devotion of the many voluntary  workers who kept that organization operating  efficiently. To the donors themselves, including many men and women who repeated their  donations over and over, the thanks of the entire nation are due.  They performed   a work   of great mercy  and they deserve full national gratitude.  1  tt  SOLID COMFORT"  A   CAMERA   STUDY    FOR   COAST    NEWS   READERS  Xr* On The    :  CONTRARY  ���By BOB STRACHAN  Eureka I I have found it!  This is no new theory of  physics I have evolved or  discovered so I did not emulate Archimedes and gallop  home minus my clothes to  check up on chisellers, but  I do feel quite happy about  the fact that at last we have  a section of big business  with brains enough to appreciate some things other  than bank balances.  Some American business  men founded an association  which they call the New  Council of American Business.^ This new organization  is composed of,liberal and  progressive business men  who disagree with the policies generally sponsored by  the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers.  They feel that the policies  of those organizations are  not as liberal and progressive as they should be. We  could go further and include  our Canadian Manufactur-~-  ers Association in that condemnation and if we branded them as reactionary we  would hot be perjuring ourselves any.  However, the New Council is doing what it can to  offset the depressing dipsy-  doodling of the run-of-the-  mill, manufacturers, and  among the recommendations which they have proposed are some which we in  Canada could emulate to advantage.  Mr. - Clarence Alvidson,  chairman of the Republic  Drill and Tool Co. and'president of the New Council issued a statement recently  in which he said that among  the measures which the  federal government could  take without destroying  free, competitive, enterprise  are the following:  Higher  minimum  wages.  More liberal unemployment insurance.  Cycling of public works to  act as a counterbalance to  private enterprise (Mr. King  recommended this at the  Dom.-Prov. Conference.  Regulating basic industries and public services.  Strict enforcement of the  anti-trust laws.  A broad and comprehensive  program of   social   security  including a national system   v  of medical care.  Mr. Alvidson somewhat  realistically says that, if we  cannot give the voters of the  country reasonably steady  employment at decent wages  we are wasting our breath ,  talking about the glories of  the free enterprise system;  Another member of the  Council, James P. Warburg  who describes himself as a  reformed banker says that  political and economic freedom have become inseparable  Thoughts  That  Inspire . .  by  '*        WILL  REEDER  From  the .Radio  Note-Book,   on  Vancouver's CKWX, Monday  to ��  Friday, '2.45  p.m.  And as  "Country   Editor",  at  3.15   p.m  Sundays, on  CKWX  RULES FOR A PERFECT DAY  Just for today, I will try to  live, through this day only and  not tackle my whole life problem at once.

This assumes that what  Abraham Lincoln said is true,  that "most folks are about as  happy as they make up their  minds to be." Happiness is from  within���it is not a matter of  externals.

With men of that calibre  leading the way there is good  reason to believe that the  U.S. will find a solution to  their post-war problems. All  that we in Canada have  heard from our business;  leaders is a ', threatening  whine that unless taxation is  reduced industry will not  have the prospect of increased profits to act as an incentive to expansion' and the  provision of jobs.  After all the heroic claptrap peddled to us by big  business in paid newspaper  advertisements this last few  years about building a better Canada in the post-war  era we would think that the  obligation and opportunity of  fulfilling thc^e easy promises  would be incentive , enough  for the controllers of our industrial economy.  Calling all reformed bankers and businessmen! Wednesday, September 19, 1945.  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.  PAGE 7  The following lines are supposed to have been the hopes  and anticipations of a mother concerning her daughter,  Harriet Wolliscroft Long-lane, Charlesworth. who died on  March 29th, 1879, in her 19th year. A niece is Miss Harriet  Morris, now living at Gibson's Landing, who has as a fam-  ly souvenir the clippings from an old country newspaper.  It is believed these lines are the sourc of many memoriam  notices used by contemporary newspaper^.  A voice is from  our household     And said it was wrong to weep,  ���    budding   rose;  Harriet looked like lovely May,  Now she sleeps' in death's  repose.

Harriet bore a temper sweet,  Fairest gem in beauty crowned,  Harmless, homely,  chaste,  and  neat.  These were riches all her own.  Harriet lived a country life,  'Mongst the berries, buds, and  bowers,  Far away'from noise and strife  Culling Nature's simple  powers.  Constant as the Sabbath bell,  O'er the dew-bespangled sod,  Harriet tripped it through  the  dell  To the hallowed House of God.  She was a gentle creature;  And it filled my heart  with pleasure  To gaze on every feature  Of my beloved treasure.

"Small wonder that eve^y  public-spirited citizen expresses  alarm at the losses caused each  year by forest fires", President  MacKenzie added, "when we are  at the same time searching for  ways and means of employing  more people after the war than  ever before in our province.  "The age-old foundation for  jobs and wages is the soil.  Ninety-five per cent of British  * Columbia's productive soil is almost exclusively suitable for  timber growth. It is the final  and only crop. Our timberland  and their products now provide  more employment than any  other industry or resource. Unlike agriculture; ImMihg or fish- "  eries, the forests are exposed to  destruction by fire,.and such destruction  must   be   curbed by  government action and public  co-operation or this province  will face tragic consquences.  "British Columbia has overcome difficulties far surpassing  ���the forest fire problem. The:  public and those in authority  can deal with this situation y if  they want to," stated Dr. MacKenzie.     ���'. > ,  The inestimable damage to  our priceless forest heritage  caused by^ those* few irfespqh- =  sibte smokers, campers ^hd motorists who abuse their privilege of visiting the forests, results not only in a curtailment  of their own liberty and enjoyment but results in tragic consequences for v the general pub-.  lie as well.

Off went the  remaining line, and the fight  was on.  But with no spare line, and  a fighting fish, the battle didn't  last long, and off went the fish  with most of the line, spoon,  flasher, weights and all. Scotty  and Clarence were pretty disgusted, but decided to go  ashore for some*more tackle  and try again.  Clarence, who was on the  oars, spotted a flasher on the  surface some distance away,  and seeing it was theirs, immediately turned round and  went after it. After about half  an hour of hard work the boys  finally got the boat alongside  the fish, and Scotty took the  gaff and tried to hook the line.  But their luck was against  them���he missed it and down  went the fish.   .  So the boys, started home  again, but about half way there  they saw the flasher again.' This  time, after another half-hour,  Scotty grabbed the line with  the gaff arid pulled in a tired  fish. It was a 15-pound salmon.
