Array W. * Sutherland,  Correspondent  Half Moon Bay is a pleasant  place to live; it is sheltered,*  with a fine outlook in every  direction; there is good anchorage for small boats; bathing and  fishing are exceptionally good.  For many years it has been  known as a fine summer resort  and when a portion of Red-  rooffs was recently sub-divided  and put on the market, the lots  i were eagerly snapped Up both  I by local residents and by many  J 6i the , vacationists who had  j long wished to build their owii  | summer homes.  Another    property   ad j oining,  ^ Redroofsv   has   also   been   sub-  )) divided, and a road put through .  f which opens up about two and  V a half miles of beautiful home-  [/ sites along the coast. This road  is now only two or three miles  short   of   connecting   with  the  Sechelt road, and will hb dbubt  before so very long join up with  that highway, thus giving us a  ( scenic marine drive to Sechelt,  ) and at the same time obviating  ! the   long-about   climb   up   the  j. hill on the present route.  I     It is no doubt at .least partly  i due to the increased number of  1 property owners that the traf-  I fie seems so much heavier this  ; summer,   this   being, specially  noticeable on boat  days when  the present freight shed would  seem to be only about half large  enough.  We  hope  before next  summer this will be remedied,  A  further indication  of the  PUBLISHED EVERY UJEDNESDAY at HflLFlTlOON BAY, B. C.

EARLY FROST HITS  KLEINDALE CROPS  KLEINDALE��� An unusually  early frost has dealt destruction to several of the crops here.  Mr. Bill Cameron reports the  complete loss of his vegetable  crop���potatoes excepted. Tomatoes, cucumbers and squash  were particularly hard-^hit.

Cotton, Correspondent  Sgt.,    Major   W.F    (Scotty)  Clark and: his wife Sgt. E.  N.  (Bessie) Clark are back at Roberts Creek on leave. Sgt.. Major  Clark yisya member of the Canadian Armored Corp and Sgt.  Clark    of   the   C.W.A.C.  Sgt.  Major Clark was a member of  the Caljgair^ *^a^lc -Corp which  took part M%e l!>ie|>$e raid. He  hats spent four years overseas,  and at one time was sent back  to Canada onya special mission,  when called back to England,  flew all the way back by plane.  The   trip  ^across   the   Atlantic  was to Scotty quite a trip, especially   when    described   by  him.   During   the  invasion   of  France and Germany he went  through     France,     Normandy,  Belgium,   Holland   and   Germany. After. VE day he signed up  for the Pacific.  Sgt. E. N. Clark spent two  and a half years in London. She  experienced the blitz, buzz-  bombs and the rockets. Her description of what went on in  London during the raids and  bombings are very vivid and  the writer has no doubt that  the people of London went  through a tremendous ordeal.  She says that she often talked  of Roberts Creek over there  and how nice it would be to be  back.  We are glad to see them back  together with all the rest of the  returned men and women who  are visiting here this  summer.  Scotty Clark was a former  employee of the B&K Logging  Co. at Roberts Cjjeek.  DAVIS BAY FOLKS  ENJOY PARTIES  AT BEACH CAMPS  DAVIS BAY���With the lifting  of the ban on bonfires, some  jolly times have been 'enjoyed  here. Monday evening, August  13th, was one such occasion,  and all had such a good time  that another event was planned  for the following Saturday.  A strong westerly which blew  up, however, made a fire out  of the question, but the kind^  invitation of Mr. and Stfrs, Sid^  Thompson to go to their beach  cottage for a sing-song was  gladly accepted.  Mr.   Alfred   Tonks   led   the  singing, and substantial refreshments in the form of weiners  Continued on Page 5  DAVIS BAY  ' Mrs. G. Cormack, Correspondent  ', Recent guests of Mrs. G.

Seaside Regatta  Provides Thrills  For Big Audience  The recent regatta and speedboat racing meet at Seaside  Park proved to be a very spectacular and entertainiing affair, with plenty of thrills provided in the way of races and  at least one collision. The me��t  was also the occasion of a gathering of the members of the  Vancouver Power Boat Club,  who gathered under Commodore Reg Jackson of Wilson  Creek on the lawn at the Seaside Hotel.  Among members present, all  of Vancouver, were Al Le Cana,  Jack Cohen, Abe Knight, Len  Shrimpton, T��d Currell, Art  Haillagh, Bill Brown, Harold  Steeves, W. Olson, Paul Northy,  E.

French,  corsages were presented by  Mrs. Morley to Mrs. Nickson  and Mrs. D. McLennan, the  Provincial Secretary, who came  to Sechelt for the occasion.  Mrs. McLennan gave a short  outline of Legion activities, and  was followed by Mr. G. Batchelor, Branch President, with a  brief talk. A reading by Comrade Elliott on VJ-Day was enjoyed, and the evening was  spent in cards and singing. Mrs.  C. Wheeler and Comrade W. J.  Mayne were convenors.  Mrs. Nickson received many  floral tributes from friends and  admirers, and a large birthday  cake centered the table at  which all the Legion officers  were seated with the guest of  honor.  Mrs. Nickson is an old-time  resident of the district, and is  also a member of the Vancouver  Pioneers' Association. Mr. Harold Nickson is a son, and Mrs.  Paddon, Mrs. Deal, Mrs. Bay-  liss, Mrs. T. D. Sutherland and  Miss Lindsay Nickson are  daughters. Lt-Col.

Everywhere people were running  frantically to each other with  the most tremendous news in  six years. While waiting for the  noise which meant the official  go-ahead sign, scenes of the last  six years flashed through my  mind. I thought of the many  boys in Shaughnessy who were  unable, to join in the world's  mad release. The boy in Ward  C whose back is badly broken.  He is able to move his hands  but is otherwise motionless. He  was wounded in the Allies' first  big offensive . . . and I wondered what, he thought of this,  the finaL ehd^   y      '���.'"������"���  I   remembered    the . mother  who  proudly sent  six sons 'to  -war,, and  gratefully .welcomed  ihome: one V. . and another who  lost  her husband  in the   first  world war and her son in the  second���and is now in hospital  |in Great Britain. She was  almost   fatally '���-. wounded   when  ^-jthe���Germans  made  their  last  ;   effort. ..;.  ?'  \ The faces of many friends  who had had glamorous war  marriages came to my mind.  During the years they have  changed ;. . . some of their men  will never come back, some are  \welcomed home wounded, and  ; some come back to a home they  never knew.  \ I thought of the many millions   pf women - war workers.  They laid down their tools tp  | join the milling crowds. For k  yshort    while T they    abandoned  themselves to the moment, but  soon   the   thought   of    "what  now?" crept into their minds.  How long would it be before  they  were   laid  off  . . .   who  would  be first? For some tne  ] work they are doing is the only  thing they know. What is going  to happen to theiri?  Watching the line quelle  up  ���  at the store for needed provis-  ������ ions, I thought of the  oft-said  "People's  War"  .  .   .   and  the  promise of the "People's Peace".  Peace���what a strange word���  after   six   long   years   of   the  bloodiest war history has ever  known, what will peace mean?  > Women kissed.each other and  cried.   Their husbands  will  be  home; nylon stockings soon will  be. on the market; the  French  perfumes> willbe back; we can  have all the gas we need; and  , as a woman said, "now I ��� can  ���get my new refrigerator". Yes,  all these things mean peace .  During  our  day of celebra- -���  tion and thanksgiving, I couldn't help but think that through  the suffering of the human race  during these years, Protestant,  Catholic   and  Jew   have   been  banded   together.   They   have  fought  for a common cause���  ;  for   their   ideals,   their   beliefs  and their homes. I hoped that  this   peace   would   bring  them  /even closer together. That the  promises made by the big men. ;  would be kept by the little men.  ^ FOR BETTER'"'*  SERVICE ... SEE  weeping with joy and relief  that their boys would be com-  When I saw older women  ing home, I prayed that the  women of my generation would  never weep for their sons. When  I.saw a white-faced young soldier hobbling along on crutches, I hoped that would be a  a picture we would never see  again. When the little children  waved their flags with little  understanding of the meaning  of the excitement, I prayed that  the next time flags were waved,  it wbuld only /be in memory  of that day, August 14,  1945.  Someone said, "What will  they put in the newspapers  now, there isn?t a war?" There  will be many things for the  newspapers ... to tell how Europe is being rebuilt, how the  debris of countries, cities, towns  and human souls is being restored. They will tell how the  gospel of peace is being preached . . . how the nations' scientists are striving for a cleaner,  healthier, happier universe;  what the great musicians have  created for our ears; what the  artists have created for our  eyes; They will tell of the many  new and wonderful things for  our material comfort and convenience.  AH these things crossed my  mind as we wandered all over  the district greeting friends and  new-found friends ... as I saw  neighbors rushing into each  other's houses^tp rejpice or offer .  friendly sympathy 'j ;',.;?":py ���kids''*  jittefbugged with enthusiasm,  but little knowledge of the  thing they celebrated.  I am glad I celebrated that  historic date in a district where  people are of a democratic  mind, and I am proud to say  that I started on the long unexplored road of peace, a road  that is bright with promise for.  the future, in British Columbia.  CHILD ORPHANED  BY DAD'S DEATH  A heart attack caused the  death of Hans Grutzmacher,  58-year-old Vancouver fisherman, who collapsed aboard his  boat near Stuart Island last  Wednesday, a coroner's autopsy has revealed. The remains  have been forwarded to Vancouver for burial.  An added tragedy is the fact  that Grutzmacher's 12-year-old  son Normar/, who was with him  at the time and who brought  the boat' to Stuart Island after  his father's death, is left an  orphan, his mother having died  last year. He .spent a few days  staying with police in Powell  River, and was then taken to  Vancouver by officers, where he  wi\l be cared for by the Child  Welfare authorities. %n uncle,  Jens Jensen, is believed to reside in Detroit,, and efforts are  being made to reach him.  Wm. WlcFADDEN  With servicemen and service-  women returning home from  overseas in increasing numbers,  the Ration Administration is  receiving many requests to provide rationed foods to organizations tendering official welcomes.  While in hearty sympathy  with such receptions, the Board  points out that it is unable to  grant any extra allotments for  such functions. Rationed foods  are just not available to meet  the demands that would be  created by such a practice. The  rations set for consumers of butter, sugar and preserves are  based on the known supplies  available ahd anticipated production. If these commodities  are drawn from such stores it  simply, means further reduction  in the ration to consumers.  Promoters of such receptions  must, therefore, arrange to provide the necessary refreshments  frdm the individual rations of  the organizations concerned.  CO-OPS TAKE PRIDE  IN NEW INDUSTRY  AT ROBERTS CREEK  ROBERTS CREEK��� Workers  in the Co-operative movement are proud of a new turkey-raising business which has  become established at Wilson  Creek which is purely a local  affair.  It was assisted financially by  the Credit Union���which is the  local People's Bank��� and is  purchasing large quantities of  feed' required from the new  Gulf-Mainland Co-operative���  thereby keeping local money at  home. Some of the finished  birds will; probably be sold to  the Elphinstone Co-operative,  giving the whole community an  opportunity to purchase locally-  raised food equal in quality to  the importations.  The turkey raiser is J. J.  Aune. He has about 400 birds,  perfectly housed off the ground,  and   scientifically  fed.

E; Foersier,  director of the Pacific Biological Station at Nanaimo.  Sneaking of the "Jap weed"  (cystophyllum geminatum) he  said: "This has really nothing  to do with the introduction of  Japanese oyster seed, nor has  it been planted deliberately by  the Japs in pre-war days to develop a nuisance to fishermen,  summer resort owners, etc. The  species has long been recorded  on the coast, occurring from  the Bering Sea to Puget Sound,  but it is only within the last  few years that it has shown any  sigh of becoming abundant.  "Two years ago it was beginning to be reported from various places along the coast, but  last year it was becoming much  more common. I would be inclined to think that the sudden  increase in abundance has been  due to exceptionally favorable  conditions for development.  When oceanographic conditions  change, the weed may die off  again to its former scattered  distribution."  Referring to varieties of seaweed prevalent along the coast  in general, Mr. Foerster continued: "Real interest in the varieties of seaweed on the coast  has been stimulated only in the  last year or two, when commercial possibilities of red seaweeds in the manufacture of  commercial agar and of brown  : seaweeds in the nianufacture of  algin products, were discovered.

PAGE 5  A Monthly Feature For  Coast News Readers, by  JANE DRURY  unch Need  s  Very Special Attention  THE MONTH of August is almost over, and in many homes  mothers are busy getting the children ready to return  to school. Some of the little folk are going for the first time  and are looking forward to it with joy: There is always  something special about the ffet day at school after the  summer holidays. I think it is being with friends again.  The majority of the boys and girls look forward to seeing  their friends again because they most probably have something very special to share with them. Also they like to  find out what the new teacher is like, and while the pupils  are giving the teacher the once-over she is busy looking  over the class at the same time.  In many homes "school days"  - .means additional lunches to be  v..; made.   The   school   lunch  box  should* be   kept   cleaned   and  yy aired daily. All sandwiches and  cake should be wrapped in wax  paper.   A   small   srew-top   jar  holds   nicely   a   baked   apple,  ; stewed  fruit  or   pudding.   See  ;  that a spoon is included in the  contents of the box as well as  a paper napkin. As it is most  :   important that milk. be included  in the lunch, see  that the  child  has   a  lunch  box   large  enough to carry a thermos for  this purpose, or in the winter  time,  hot   cocoa  or  soup  is  a  nice change if made with milk.  I am not^ going to give r you  '-i!_l_iy^>r-e^p^s^^^:;:^okliF,;r'be-  cause so many of you'will be  very busy with preserving that  you won't want to try any* new  recipes until you see how much  sugar you have left frbm canning, A good idea would be to  r set aside a cup or two of sugar  .and forget  about it until you  are ready to do your Christmas  .baking.  I know that  is much  easier said  than  done,  but  if  i you can manage to get along'.,  without that extra cup or two,  you will find later that it will  come in very  handy. I know  that   the   most   of   us haven't  enough sugar to meet pur demands at the present time and  ; if I: could tell you how io ac-  ; quire more���well, that  would  be something. I personally prefer sugar in baking io corn syrup or honey but when we cannot get the sugar we naturally  turn to the others as a substitute. I have found out also from  experience that it is not necessary to use butter or Crisco to  get  a  nice  flavored  cake, ' as  other types of vegetable short-  -ening are just as good. This is  pariiculary   true   with   spiced  [cakes or cookies. Jiist before I  "started to write this page I consumed an extra large piece of  y fresh apple pie and was it ever  f good.

Baked Rhubarb  For Preserving  With Little Sugar  Why talk about preserving  rhubarb when it takes so much  sugar? That's what you think.  I know there is still some rhubarb left in a few gardens and  when you see how little sugar  it takes you will want to preserve some. I was unable to  give you this recipe earlier because I wanted to try it out  first before passing it on to you.  Wash and cut the rhubarb in  one inch lengths, oven-bake in  covered casserole, then sprinkle  a pinch of salt over it and some  of the sugar. My casserole holds  six cups of cut rhubarb so I  follow this procedure until the  casserole is full leaving some  of the sugar for the top. No  water is added. Bake this in the  oven until the rhubarb is tender  and then pack it into sterilized  jars and process 10 minutes in  boiling water bath or 30 minutes in 275 deg.

He should do a roaring trade.  Wciz Coast Mzws  PUBLISHED   EVERY  WEDNESDAY  by  The Coast News Limited  Registered   Office:  Powell  River, B.  C.  Business Office: Halfmoon Bay, B. C.  A. H. ALSGARD, President  E. W. PARR  PEARSON,   Secretary-Treasurer  HALF MOON BAY, B.C. August 29, 1945  THE LIQUOR LAWS  COINCIDENTAL with Prime Minister King's  announcement that certain federal restrictions on the sale of beverage alcohol had  been removed, warmly critical comment on  Canada's various liquor laws has''been heard  in many parts of the country. In B.C., for instance, Bishop Sexton has strongly denounced  the present system of selling intoxicants on the,  grounds that it does not encourage moderation. He sees nothing amiss in the purchase of  beer or wine with meals, and that sale by the  bottle, and by the glass without food, tends  to discourage temperance.  Moderation and temperance, not only with  alcohol but with everything, are of course the  objectives of every intelligent person. Everyone remembers the debacle that attempted  prohibition created.  There are many factors involved in the  liquor situation. They are economic, physical,  moral and social, and all must be considered.  But since prohibition is shown to be impossible, moderation should be the aim of all  liquor legislation.  Whether the present laws secure moderation is another argument. But no one can ignore the restlessness and dissatisfaction with  the present system���even discounting, as it  should be discounted, the avid eagerness of.  those whose only desire is to obtain unlimited  quantities for obvious purposes. Among the revisions in the liquor laws which should be  considered is the near-monopoly in beer trade  placed in the hands of the hotel-keepers.  Many other points will be brought to light  when candidates appear in the forthcoming  Provincial election.  But there is no use taking a bigoted stand  and arguing wildly for a radical change one  way or another. What is needed is a careful  study of the situation in all its aspects, and  then  changes on  what logic clearly indicates.  USE BUSINESS-LIKE METHODS  UN THE PAST few weeks, a flood of family  allowance cheques, about 1,466,000 per  month, has been loosed on the country and the  chartered banks have taken on the task of  cashing or depositing them. .    'y  It should be noted that this service will  materially increase the work of banks, w^ich  have been operating with reduced staffs. v The  cashing of cheques for members of the armed  forces and for payment of their dependents' allowances together with cheques from industry  has, of course, multiplied by millions the number of cheques going through the banks. In addition, they have taken on the servicing of: victory loans, the selling, delivery and safe-keep:  ing of bonds and war savings certificates^ ration coupon banking and other extra wartime  services. .     ���     ���.. . -;  In order, then, that the payment of family  allowances may proceed in an orderly and efficient manner, it is urged that the public give  every co-operation in the handling of these  cheques. In other words, recipients should familiarize themselves with bank routine so that  as little delay and confusion as possible may  result.  Holders of family allowance cheques  should remember the importance of going to  the banks as early as possible, in the mornings  if they can. They should remember that they  will need to be identified. They should guard  against losing their cheques after they are  made negotiable by endorsement.  Above all, they should note the rules with  regard to endorsements. They should remember that if any clerical error is made in the  spelling of their names or in their initials, they  appears on the document and then, underneath,  should first endorse the cheque exactly as it  sign their own proper signatures.  i  GOOD RESTRICTION  MOST Canadians will commend the action pf  the federal government in forbidding service personnel to bring automatic firearms  home to Canada as souvenirs. It is unfortunate that the reason given for the ban is not  quite so sound as the ban itself.  It has been announced that the importation of automatic firearms has been prohibited  because possession of such firearms would  be likely to encourage the spread of crime and  violence.  That may be true, but it sounds a trifle  silly. We have always been under the impres-  , sion that crime began with an idea and not  with a gun. We never did believe that mere-  possession of a pistol would incite a man to  commit burglary.  However, whatever the real reason for the  ban, it is still a good and useful regulation.  There were too many fatal accidents after the  last war with the lethal souvenirs brought  back from Europe and certainly the proportion of such occurrences would be much higher  after this one.  Firearms are not the best kind of playthings.    ;    *  CHILD IN SPRING  SARA V.

M IR'RO R  Of World Opinion  Special Dye Found  Leaks in Pipeline  "Where theres' a will there's  a way," or better still, "there's  always a way," was well exemplified by the recently-told  stories of "Operation Pluto"  and then of "Fido." Now comes  the story of "Pluto's Leak".  Some of the pipes carrying  precious oil and gasoline from  England to the armies in  France developed leaks or even  actual fractures. There were no  means of ascertaining the precise locations so that. divers  might be sent down to execute  repairs until the Petroleum  Warfare Department bethought  itself of a dye-stuff known as  Fluorescin LT.  This produces large colored  patches on the sea's surface  which can be seen from a considerable distance by patrolling  vessels or aircraft. ,  Fluorescin was pumped into  the suspected pipes froni which  it was forced through the leak  or fracture, subsequently rising to the surface and thus locating the break.

A new Serial Story  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.  by Rubrey Boyd  __PAGE 7  SYNOPSIS: On the old side-  wheeler "George E. Starr," on  its way* to the Yukon gold: fields  in the first rush of '97, Speed  Malone, experienced gold-camp  follower and gambler, and young  Ed Maitland, on his first trip,  trying to recoup his lost family  fortune, struck up a strange  friendship. Maitland left Speed  playing Solo with two other men  and wandered forward, to be  sharply recalled by the report  of a pistol and the news *hat  hjs partner had been shot and  had gone overboard. Ed jumgped  in after him, without second  thom^it. But the cold waters got  him, and in the end it was Speed  who did the rescuing, holding  Ed's head above roster until they  were taken aboard a little fish,  boat by a French fisherman frfctn  Seattle. The big ship went ��n  without them. NOW GO ON  WITH THE STORY.  Frenchy raised hid eyes, folded his arms, unfolded them and  burst into a geyser of language  which, if the activity of his arms  signified anything, was far from  pious.  When the torrent subsided,  Speed grinned. He drew from  liis pocket five double-eagles, and  dropped them on. y the table.  "There's a hundred dollars belonging to me and my pardner.  Now what d6es"*I up and do but  gamble this yer hundred"���he  stacked the five gold pieces in a  neat column���-"that you're takinr  "iis ��� north to] the camp of Skag-  yway; Alaska; yyy.-j :������-- - - ���;�� ;���:.  But tlie fisherman began anotheroutburst in his native  tongue. - '''���'  With no. sign of impatience,  the gambler pulled out a shorfc-  barreled, itriggerless .45 Golt,  broke it open, clicked it back  and set it on the table.  "I don't savvy your lingo,  Frenchy," he said equably, "but  this baby comprehends ever'  kijKywed dialec' a-nd speaks it  fluent. I plays her to copper my  bet.'* ..  The Frenchman's eyes blazed.  Lunging sideways he reached for  the. knife that was stuck in the  cabin wall. But before his fingers  ytouched the haft, the gun roared  and the knife clattered to the  floor. In a curling haze of smoke  the fisherman backed to the  companion,; while* Speed carefully examined the bore of his  revolver against the light and  blew some smoke from it.  "Mebby    you   can    translate  that,"   he   suggested.    "Reckon  ' the salt water ain't spoiled her  f accent none."  Though torn by the struggle  and perspiring, Frenchy made a  labored refusal. "Too far/' he  mumbled.   "I lose ze feesh."  Speed began to rake in the  scattered coins, leaving out three  fives. "All right," he said pleasantly. "There's fifteen, if you  land us near a man with a boat  who ain't weak in the head and  knees both. We'll take some  other fisherman to the Yukon.  To the golden river���" And he  hummed a song 'which that phrase  recalled to him.  .  "Gold?" echoed Frenchy.  "Sticky with it." The gambler detached a damp cigarette  paper and became engrossed in  the delicate task of rolling a  smoke.  "You goin' there?"  "Goin* there!" Speed had a  look of having been asked an  outlandish, question. "Does the  stiff live, Frenchy, pannin' an  ounce of sense to the ton, who'd  work out a life term for a stake  he could dig up in a week? Not  even you, if you knowed the layout. Take this range of yourn-���  a tough one to ride, I should  reckon, with the storms and fog,  broken lines, raw fingers and  busted bones. And when you  cash in, what's the figure?  Frenchy's pickled carcass bobbin' up and down the dirty  water of some cove, and the  Susette a smashed tubf ul of mud  and seaweed on a stack of rocks."  Frenchy nodded sadly.  Speed, who had been watching  Frenchy with a speculative eye,  gave all the money before him  a sudden brusque shove to the  center^- the table. "It's yourn!"  he said.  With an impulsive grab, the  fisherman clawed it toward him.  The gambler lit .his cigarette  and spoke to Maitland through  a lazy vapor of smoke.  "Unwind the verdic', Judge. Is  it legal?"  Maitland had been considering the proposition as it took  shape. The chart in the cabin  was sketchy, but he had sailed  broken coasts before with less  to go by. He liked the feel of  the boat. Anything seemed better than turning back. The fisherman was being well paid.  "I can't pay my share," he  began.  "Sink me, Bud," protested the  Westerner, "if you ain't as. unexpected as a parson's mule.  The money was won on your,  stake, and: half of it's yourn.  Also, you're the- deep-sea shark.  Boats is a branch of knowledge  I'm "free of, and I don't figure  Frenchy for no oceanic scout.  So we'll owe you for gettin' us  there.  The boy pulled on his clothes  and  went out to  look at the  Susette.    She   proved  to be  a  - strong, deep-keeled boat with the  remains   of  a   cutter's  rigging,  and   a  look' of  having   known  better   things    before    Frenchy  turned her into a smack.  Having had to overstay several  watches, Maitland was glad when  he found the open sea at Dixon's  Entrance, and was able to shove  the tiller into Frenchy's unwilling  hands and go below.  He ate a mulligan Speed had  compiled from the "tailm*s,, of the  previous meal, and tumbled into  the bunk for a sleep. Awakened  hours later by a thud of running  seas, he had just caught a drowsy  glimpse of his dorymate playing  solitaire with Frenchy's cards  under the swinging lamp, when  a sudden lurch sent chair and  player. sprawling.  "Pitchin' cayuses!" the gambler mumbled ruefully. ,"Am I goin'  tc ride this critter before we hit  Skagway?"  Mention, of Skagway reminded  for Maitland of a question he had  wondered about.s "Why do you  choose that camp instead of  Dyea?" he asked.  The other rearranged his cards  with some care. "They's no call  for a covered; play between you  and me, Bud. It don't suit my  hand to meet the George E. Starr  or her passengers till they have  time to forget where ���they seen  me last. There's no wires to beat  in the North, and gettin' passed  up for drowned is a good alibi."  That Speed had had a serious  tangle with the Law before boards  ing the ship Maitland already suspected. He now saw that the security of the strange alibi lay in  his own hands. Little as the fact  appealed to him, he appreciated  the other's confidence that he  would not betray it. "I was wondering," he said, "whether the  White "Pass from Skagway is a  better trail."  "It's a horse trail. Where  there's horses the pay is better.  My special reason for choosin'  it���" the Westerner's face hardened a little���"is that a man. I'm  lookin' for is liable to choose that  route. .... What's your plan in  makhV for Dyea?"  "I thought I might get a longshore job of some kind till I earn'  ed an outfit."  "You can do better. If you tied  in with a horse outfit on the White  Pass, they might pay for help and  throw in the grub,"  "But tools," Maitland objected.  The gambler's mouth twisted  humorously, as he studied a card.  "If you mean picks and shovels,  Bud, the hist'ry oi perspectttV  learns us they's mighty little satisfaction in a shovel, and none  at all in a pick. You can pick  them up anywhere off the landscape."  From the chart in the cabin  Maitland discovered that they  were north of the fifty-fifth latitude and actually in Alaska,  though the map did not mark the  lower boundary of that long strip  of Coastal islands called the "Pen-  handle.'' *  Through one of these channels  Maitland turned a course west of  Zarembo Island into a long sea  igorge, which, proved to be easily  navigable, but slow for sailing..  When fish had followed fish as  an unvaried menu for days, the  idea of fish became by degrees  more sinister than hunger, even  to Frenchy.  The cliff shadows had melted  into the glamour and mist of a  wider channel when they heard  the faint whine of a steamer's  siren, r passing southward by another course. It sounded queerly,  in that solitude, a far echo of the  world with which they had lost  contact.   '. . -     - ��� -.-���.--.:���,���.   ���  Speed wound in his line. "How'd  you come to choose this route,  Bud?" he"asked. "  "It isn't a course the steamers  would take," Maitland answered  after a pause. "I thought, if the  George E. Starr were to pass us  in the harrows, going back, someone mig]3.t get the idea you weren't drowned."  The reflection of a wave to  which they were rising illumined  the others face but left his eyes  obscured. "That's a long way to  go for a stranger," he said.  Maitland shook his head. The  word "stranger" hardly applies to  a man with whom one has been  drowned and brought alive again.  "I was thinking as we came up  the gulf,*' he said, rather hesitantly, "of how we started this  trip together. It's a fresh start  for both of us, in a way. Why  couldn't we see it through as  partners?"  The gambler twisted the line  in his hands. "It- says a whole  lot to me, Bud. I've always wanted to square you for that lost  ���outfit, and I could steer you some  in the gold camps. But as for  pardners���you don't know who I .  am."  "Forget about the  outfit.   And  the other trouble too.   It's a new  deal, isn't it?"  'Meanin'?''  "If you'll agree to respect the  Law  while  we're  partners,  your  word's good with me."  The flaw in his proposition appeared to Maitland during the  silence that followed. While  Speed might have left his record  behind him, he had come north  with a purpose he wasn't likely  to forget. The Westerner's reply,  however, took an unexpected form.  "Suppose I coppered against a  forced lay by sayin' I'd pull out  and leave you clear if I had to  tangle with the Law. Would that  got"  He looked up with a misty question in his eyes, and two brown  hands locked on the bargain.  From the outer waters of the  Lynn Canal, a great marine corridor contracted toward their destination. Vast walls of rock loom-,  ed on either side to heights of a  thousand feet or more, sheer out  of the sea, casting a half-mile  shadow into the gulf. On ledges  of these cahyoii faces, spruce and  jackpines perched 'like window  shrubs. Above them, in the upper  air, snow-crowned peaks glistened with a molten splendor, and in  the deep, brooding shadows at  their base, gigantic boulders lay  sprawling in the seaweed that  wavered and streamed with the  ground swell.  When the Susette traversed the  shadow of these ramparts, late  one afternoon in August, sunlight  was falling in shafts into the  fjord, pearling the mists that hung  like webs between the canyon  heads, and dazzling the smokey  fall of mountain streams which  cascaded into the gloom and rose  again, as rainbowed spray.  At a bend in the narrowing sea  gorge a sudden echo among the  shore rocks set the traVelersrears  tingling, and shortly afterwards  they emerged on a dazzling vista  of bright water in which a.cargo  steamer lay at anchor, some two  hundred yards from shore.  The landing beach shone gold  in the sunlight, shelving steeply  down from graveled flats, where a  river canyon opened its broad delta on the gulf. Gray tents, scattered along the flats, and the snowy  tered high above the canyon, marked it as the outlet of the Skagway river and the base camp pf  the White Pass.  "Landin? horses," said Speed.  The heads of the swimming animals bobbed at several points between the ship and the surf.  As they drew nearer, a gaudy  pinto  flashed   into  Ifte  air   and  took water in a smother of diamonds.  The broncho swam on���not toward shore, however, but in blind  panic down the gulf.  "Might buy us a feed if we  round up this cayuse," Speed suggested. "See if you can turn him,  Bud."  Cutting acros the runaway's  course, Maitland skilfully matched the frightened zigzags with  which it tried to evade the approaching sail, till they could see  its opal-blue eye, flaming with terror. As the boat came close, a  rope sang from the Westerner^  hand, neatly ringing the piuto's  head. To avoid dragging Its nose  under water, Speed played out  his line. The Susette luffed but  was a little heavy for such delicate handling, and a few inches  late in bringing to. Rather than  release the line, Speed jumped  in after it.

C.  ^Wednesday,   August   29,   1945  British Columbia's Coalition  Government this year embarked  with legislative authority upon  a 22-point program. Less than  six months after its announcement, action has been taken on  , every proposal set out in that  program.  Last  year,  the  Coaltion had  a 27-point program. Action was  taken  on every point .but one,  and that one was participation  in   a Dominion-Provincial  conference when called. That point  also- has now, been cleared.  . Several of the proposals outlined   by   Premier   John   Hart,  when   .he   announced   the   22-  point  program  cannot  be  carried through to completion because pf lack of materials and  equipment   resulting   from   the  war, but in each case the Government has taken  action.  ; Some of the points, and their  present  stage,  follow:  1. Establishment of a hydroelectric commission���Commission appointed, two groups of  companies taken over and a  third to follow, and plans made  for 50,000 h.p. power plant at  Campbell River.  2.

EXTENSION  Premier John Hart found  that heads of both the CPR and  CNR were keenly interested in  the future of the provincially-  owned Pacific Great Eastern  Railway when he called on  them in Montreal. Two possibilities are open���outright sale  of the PGE to either or both of  the transcontinental lines; or a  big development scheme for  north central B.C. and the  Peace River in which the Dominion and the Province, and  one or both of the major railways would co-operate.  FOR B.C. BEEKEEPERS  The Dept. of Agriculture has  protested to Ottawa against re  duction of sugar for feeding  bees to 15 pounds per colony  for fall feeding, with none for  spring feeding. Pending receipt  of a decision from Ottawa the  Department advised beekeepers  to keep sufficient honey to feed  their bees, instead of placing it  on the market.  Small beekeepers with one to  a dozen colonies would be hard-  hit, the Department contended.  If honey. must be kept for feeding, that much less will be  available for the public.    .  NEW PASTOR FOR  GIBSON'S CHURCH  By W. M. New  ALMOST the first, building to  meet the eye of anyone coming up the wharf at Gibson's  Landing is the Gibson Memorial United Church. It is built  on a site donated . by George  Gibson, founder of the settlement now grown into the village, which; bears his name. With  the permanent population of  West Howe Sound increasing  by leaps arid bounds, the challenge to the churches of the  community becomes even greater than it was in pioneer days.  Approximately a dozen ministers have been in charge since  those early days, and each one  has had his quota to add to the  development of the work. Rev.  Frank Bushfield, 1940 to his retirement in June 1945; has done  much to improve the church  building. The hall, memorial  porch, and memorial windows  were added through his efforts.  Mrs. Bushfield will long be remembered for her work in the  Sunday School, women's organ-  iations, and at the church organ.  A social evening with musical program and refreshments  was held. at the; church to bio.  them farewell on June ,26 last.  Mr. Bushfield was presented  with a purse, and the ladies  gave Mrs. Bushfield a pretty  fitted sewing-box. We are glad  they are still with us, making  their home here.  The hew minister, Rev. Thos.  Moore, arrived with his wife  on July 1st, and we are glad to  welcome . them. The Induction  Service was held July 19. Rev.  E. W. Mackay, Secretary of the  Vancouver Presbytery, presided, and reminded his hearers  of the great importance of all  work done amongst the children and young people. Dr. Mun-  ro of Gibson's Landing gave the  address to the minister, and  Rev. W. P. Bunt, Superintendent of Missions, the address to  the people. ������''���'������  It is the desire and prayer of  all those who have the welfare  of the community at heart, that  all may work together in the  furtherance of those things  that are upright and true, believing that the righteousness  which exalteth a nation can  only b ebrought about by the  righteousness of each smallest  community, and each individual  in that community.  SELMA  PARK  HAIRDRESSING  SHOPPE  Dolly Jonas  "A Complete  Hairdressing  Service  Phone   for Appointments  ountryLife  by GABRIELLE READ  THE SCREAM of a cougar is,  I think, one of the most  blood-curdling noises one could  hear. Especially to a youngster  of twelve.  This boy, as jnost boys do,  loved to holler and use all the  lung expansion he was capable  of so on ";his particular evening  his parents thought nothing of  the noise, that came to their  ears.   ,  The evening shadows were  growing long as the country  lad cycled his way up a narrow  trail leading to some other  property owned by, his parents  further up the road. The boy  had built a shack on this property and this night decided he  would spend the night in his  shack, after bidding good-night  to his parents he set out up the  trail.  .1 "Just listen ������to .the noise that  boy's making." exclaimed the  mother as a . seemingly boyish  cater walling floated down thru"  the evening air.  Neither ... of the parents  thought anything of the noise  of the night before until their,  son failed to arrive home for.  breakfast. The father went  over to where the shack was,  in quest of the boy. There he  was, quite comfortable in his  little shack, but also still too  frightened to come  out.  It seems he was about halfway up the trail the night before, riding his bicycle quite  contentedly when a cougar  screamed in the bush right ber  side him. The boy fell off his  bicycle in his fright, and forgetting to get on again had run.  all the rest of the way to the  gate of the other property. On  reaching there he dragged bicycle and himself over a 5-foot  gate. Inside the shack, he barred the door and spent a very  very miserable night���although  none the worse for his experience.  OLD MILL STREAM  IS APT TITLE FOR  GRANTHAM'S CREEK  By Jim Rennie  There is a "wee burn" that  flows down a glen and gurgles  under the bridge, between Grantham's Landing and Soanies  Point which supplies both districts with water.  The stream is fed; from springs  of sparkling clear water, a^d  its banks are shaded by stately  firs, cedars and alder. On a  warm summer day it is a joy  to stop here a moment and look  and listen.  At this point the wee burn  runs through the estate of the  Misses Doherty, and just before it' reaches the sea there is  an old-fashioned water wheel to  complete the- picture of "the  old mill  stream".
