 'A  -    A. A. FRENCH  Correspondent  , Sechelt ARP was officially disbanded .recently with the mailing  of service certificates to all  members. Transportation problems and poor , weather conditions determined the method selected rather than the customary general meeting.  As chairnian of the organization Mr. W. Younger organized  the force shortly < after the beginning o^ hostilities. At the  time of disbanding the Sechelt  Civil Defence Organization,  (ARP), had a membership of  fifty-two men and women covering every branch of the service.  Other members of the executive besides the chairman were  Messers. H. Hearns,; R. S. Hack-  tt, E. S. Clayton, .F. French,  W. Berry, R? F. Whitaker, J.  ���' Jonas, R. C. Keen, W. J. Mayne,  and Dr. Holm, and Fathers Mc-  Rath,  Dunlop and Campbell.  Though.never called into action, the ARP nevertheless has  ibeen of considerable benefit to  this district in addition to 'its  constant alert for enemy action.  The equipment was used for two  very bad fires last summer, and  training of personnel in the use  of equipment saved the district  from damage if the fires had  spread. Adjacent property to the  fires remained untouched.  The pump also served well as  an auxiliary hook-up on the  water service^ after a landslide  had removed a part of the water  main. The pump also acted as  a cooling system in the Power  ��� Plant.   ;  The district now has a fire  hall by volunteer labour and a  fire department volunteer service, andy efforts are being made  remain z here for iise locally.  Mr. Youhgson, local chairman,  ils also trying to obtain one of  the large electric sirens for a  fire alarm. Radius of the siren  is supposed to cover at least a  mile.  The chairman and executive  moved a vote of thanks to all  ARP personnel for their co-operation and efforts in the past.  We thank you too, Mr. Young-  son, for a job well done.  County Court, Powell River  Ringma Guilty  As Charged  "I was in some doubt as to  the proof in this case till you  gave evden.ce for yourself," said  Justice Boyd in County Court  Friday on the case of Ringma  versus the Crown. "Your evidence was a~tissue of lies. I find  you guilty as charged.*'  "In View of your past record  of good behaviour, however, and  the very excellent report on the  family as a whole I am going  to take a chance and give you;a  one year suspended sentence in  the custody of your father, with  a $200 bond guaranteeing good  behaviour and the responsibility  that you will report to the provincial police once every month.''  UNDER   INFLUENCE  Ringma was proven guilty on  the charge of entering without  -permission and burglarizing the  home of Mrs. Babrielle Retan of  Vananda. The- court took lenient  action as the accused had a clear  record until the, time of his  trouble last month and because  evidence showed that he had  been under the influence of  liquor at time of his actions.

A. public meeting, called under the auspices of the Pender Habour-Howe Sound Truckers and Taxi Operators Association, was held in the Roberts Greek Hall, on the night  of Nov. 21, for the purpose of discussing and trying to arrive  at some means by which the people of this district could definitely put before the government the condition of our roadsi  75  ATTEND  MEETING ��� ���  The meeting was attended by  75. people, representing the entire area, and all the different  6rganization)s'in each district.  A great many comments were  hejard regarding the condition of  the roads, as well as the letters,  petitions and delegations, who  have interviewed the engineers  without success in /the past.  The general opinion was that  there should be an independent  (survey and inspection of the  roads and that they should be  gravelled for a depth of 6 to 8  inches, which would make a base  suitable for a paved road in the  future.  DELEGATES NAMED  Mr. H. Sawyer of Sechelt,  acted as chairman, with Mr. J.  Bertram of Gibson's Landing as  secretary. Three delegates were  nominated, Mr. Sawyer, Mr.  Bertram, and Mr.. Cotton of Roberts Creek, to go to Victoria  to interview the minister of  Public Works. A collection of  $60 was taken up to pay the expenses of the delegates.

Sutherland,  Correspondent  NOBODY  HOME  When the Osborne Logging  Company succeeded the Neimi  outfit her,e the natives' concluded that Ted Osborne must be a  very popular man. He hailed  from Mission, and -it seemed as  though the entire influx of new  .woodsmen hailed from Mission  too. This was so noticeable that  a year or so after the Osborne  had established themselves here,  Ted   happened   to   be   strolling  along the main street of Mission  when down on a business trip,  and he remarked, "Gosh, I don't  see a soul I know." His companion retorted that he could  hardly expect to find any acquaintances in. Mission after importing them all to Half Moom  Bay.  MISSIONARIES  OR MISSIONITES?  Some of the newcomers liked  it so well here that they remained even after the Osborne Logging Company moved out.  Among the early Missiontes-���or  do I mean.

Carl, who was formerly a  resident of Secret Gove, worked  for a time for the Osborne Logging Company, but his first love  was the sea, and he finally got  himself a fishing boat.   He looks  very well, and reports a successful   fishing  season.    He   is   still  making  an occasional trip,  and  is working hard for the day when  he will be able to get a larger  boat and more up-to-date equipment.

Wednesday, December 5th, 1945  EDITORIAL���  A.R.P. DISBANDS  Throughout the war years through much adverse criticism and facing unlimited potential danger a small group of  faithful men and women, full of love for their country and  neighbors, and having vision enough to see what could happen over here if the enemy were not checkd, stood by us  and offered their time and service to this important cause���  the home front protection.  Because time alone proved that the enemy would not  reach here, those that laughed at the efforts of the ARP think  themselves justified and tend to wear that 'told-you-so' look.  These poor scoffers are still in the same position as the person  who will not carry insurance on his house because it has  not yet burnt adown.  The residents of this peninsula are grateful that the ARP  was not required to act, but they are equally grateful that  the ARP was here in case it was needed, and at the time it  was organized every indication showed the ARP offer might  be needed.  What more can we say now to the personnel and leadership of this loyal organization that served on our behalf without recompense, except Thank You, very much.

SUCCESSFUL  BAZAAR  The Women's Auxiliary to St.  Aidan's church of Roberts Creek  held a very successful bazaar ,in  the playhouse of the Kewpie  Camp.

Repeated pounding of the loge  knocked down several pilings  from under the approach of the  wharf, making it hazardous for  pedestrians and impossible for  motorists   to   use   the   approach.  The Department of Transport  has been notified and it is expected that repairs will be made  immediately.  AT  VANCOUVER   HOSPITAL  Accompanied by Mrs. Warlow,  Roberts Creek, Mrs. A. Seed was  taken to a Vancouver hospital  on Tuesday, November 27. Mrs.  Seed had been ill for over a  week before the trip to Vancouver was  authorized.  "CAKE   AND  STUFF"  The Sechelt Badminton Club  was down to play Roberts Creek,  club on November 28. There  was a good turnout from both  club<3, and we noticed quite a  few of the old timers were out  to play the game. Ken Woods  and Rich Reeves made up the  games, and the gals filled everybody up with cake and stuff  around   10   o'clock.  SYNOPSIS:    Speed Malone hardened gambler, and Ed Maitland, son of  seafaring New England family, were  partners in  the Yukon gold  rush of  '97.    They met on the trip north in a  crowd that included Prnchy, the fish-  rrman, Lucky Rose, the beautiful girl  who took a fancy  to Maitland;  Fallon, leader of the miners, who resented Rose's interest in Maitland; Brent,  old-time     prospector;     Garnet,    who  gave  Maitland   and   Speed   his  outfit  when he quit the trail, and Pete and  his drunken partner, Owens, who was  drowned after a brawl.    Pete turned  out to  be a girl in  disguise.    Speed  killed   a   man   at   Skagway���a   cheat  manager     of     a     shell   .game���and  months   after   was   arrested   and   put  in jail for his murder.    He got out,  but  while he  waited for Lefty,  who  offered  to  help  him  to  get back the  mail   he   had   been   carrying  for   the  Mounties  at Bennett.    NOW  GO ON  WITH  THE STORY.  Speed waited another instant  to watch the door. The foremost  of the marshal's men rushed into  view a thought sooner than he  had counted on. Too soon ior  Lefty, anyway; the door was  still   shut.  Speed raised the gun for a  shot that would draw them away  from it. The revolver spat flame  with a stunning roar ...  For    a  priceless     second,     he -  stood    dazed    and    half-blinded,  stumbling   to   Keep   his   balance,  and   conscious  of  no  more  than  the   fact  that  he   was   alive.    A  numbness   centered   in   his'  arm  and  hand.    As  the  haze  cleared  he  realized   that    the    gun   had  blown to pieces.    Probably frost /  in the barrel . . . he should have/"  warmed it on the lantern before  he   left   Steiner's   tent.  And in that tick of doom* the  pack was on him. The last thing  ke knew was the writhing twist  he gave h|s. body se,raa.itb).land  on his shoulder,vthen a. flare of  fire in his head. Then the snow  went  black. ���  He was still on his shoulder  when he became conscious again,  but his hands were trussed behind him with a rope; his ankles  were bound; he was gagged and  lying on dry ground.  Gradually a murmur of low  voices in the tent became articulate. He recognized Fallon's and  lay  motionless.  ". . . so we didn't find the kid  through the winter till Chik Hol-  ter located a camp on the Teslin  a ways above where we camped  on the Lewes. An outfit was  cuttin' timber there for a raft,  and Pete had a .job cookin' for  them. Holter picked up the  mare's trail headin' west, alone.  -Picked it up and lost it."  Speed's ear caught sharply at  some hidden implication in the  man's voice. ���  The other voice murmured an  interruption.   "Seems  to  me  like,  your  prisoner's   ears   is   awake."  "I'm speakin' to him," growled  Fallon. "He likely knows plenty.  It always looked to me like he  had somethin' figured about Pete,  and   about   Owens _ too."  "Well, if he won't explain his-  self, it'll be tough. He shot and  killed  a man in  this  camp,  and  was   charged,   legal.    He  busted  jail, stole a gun, and would have  done plenty more if the gun had  been good.    He ain't a Canadian.  We tell the mounties we don't  figure they'd choose a man of  this char:cter to run their mail.  We suspect he stole it; he was  seen gamblin' in a joint with the  mail  in his  pocket."  Through this talk Speed's mind  had been shuttling swiftly, trying  to weave the full pattern of what  it implied. The picture that began to emerge made him writhe  at his bonds and at the gag in  his mouth.  "The    Golden   Pass"   at   Skagway,    under    the   protection   of  Soapy   flmith,   was   a   lathering  vortex of carnival.   It had a slick  and   spacious   floor,  lit  by  hanging lamps which depended from  the   cross-beams   of   the   lumber  roof.     A   piano,   banjo   and   ac-  cordian   were   in  the   swing   of  what     sounded     like   a   musical  steeplechase.    But  they  made  a  spirited noise, and served to indicate  that the romping  riot on  the dance  floor was sociably intended, s-  In attire, the crowd was variously informal, mixingi corduroy,  rough flannel and heavy miners'  boots with the "store clothes" of  new-comers.  The bar had its own supporters, who somehow remained audible. In...their rumble of talk  there were echoes of a rumor that  a dangerous gunman had broken  jail : and \tried  to shoot up  the  camp.;���-::;���';:;.,;';:. '.'.;���. Z  *�� ia��#Bep^tumult h&< orieVvtnere- y  fore, immediately noticed that/ a"s  group of armed men had entered,  pushing before them a hatless  captive whose hands were tied  behind his back. The leader of  the posse commanded attention  by the simple means of sending a  bullet  into the  rafters.  ' "Where's Soapy Smith." Fallon  demanded in a voice that made  the  quiet  absolute.  CONTINUED   NEXT   WEEK  Sechelt  (Continued from page 1)  caught on fire. The <quick action of Harry Billingsley and  Constable Aylward prevented the  fire from spreading.

Crown  prosecutor was Mr. Remnant of  Vancouver. The case was heard  under the "Speedy Trials'' Act,  and the accused pleaded "not  guilty."

The  prosecution  was  able  to  prove  that  as  far  as  anybody,  including the accused, could tell,  the boy had left here with some  five to ten dollars in his pocket,  and returned with nearly fifteen  dollars   and   had   paid,   in   the  meantime,   $1.25  for  the  dance  and purchased liquor at around  $6;00.    No   account   of   the   increase in assets could be given.

Sutherland/ Correspondent  While we couldn't quite claim  theim as visitors, greetings were  exchanged from boat to wharf  as old friends hailed Mr. and  Mrs. Vic Osborne who were on  their way from Powell River to  visit the Ted Osborne's at Sechelt on Friday, November 23rd.  The E. Pearson faultily is rejoicing in a new addition���arrived November 22nd. She is  a freckled-faced, long-eared, six  weeks old cocker spandel, and  one of these days it is is hoped  she will recognize her name' as  "Goldie".  An unusual afternoon tea  took place at the home of Mrs.  V. Mare on Monday, November 19th, when she entertained  a party of Young Hopefuls. It  looked as though the entire population of the Bay under the age  of fifteen was headed her way.  Mrs. Mare has a reputation as  a cookie maker that would entice not only' the juniors but  their  parents  as well.  Mr. and Mrs. Harold Pearson  and tneir son Barry paid a  lengthy vistit to Mrs. Pearson's  another at Powell River. Mr.  Pearson returned home Wednesday, November 21st, and left  the next day for Vananda where  he has started to work for Earl  Laughlin, formerly of Kleindale.  Mr. Laughlin has a small logging  operation on Texada Island  close to Vananda.  Congratulations to the T. H.  'Beasley'- on their 15th wedding  anniversary. Tom just managed  to get home from town in time  for the day, November 17th, but  celebrations are postponed.  WINCH GONE  , It ^night haverjb��een anYill~w��id  ,last weekend, November 17-18th,  but Bill Mervyn figured fit was  some good to him, as he busily  rounded up the logs that had  broken out of the storage boom.  Mr. C. Alexander, however,  thought there was going to be no  silver lining to the clouds at all,  as he contemplated the gap  where the boom winch used to  Me. Then E. Curran happened  along, took one look at Mr.  Alexander and remarked, "I'll  bet I know what's worrying you  ���and I know where it is." A  couple of boom sticks were decorating the top of our biggest  rock at Hydaway, and, the boom  winch with tits float was ashore  where no boom winch belonged.  It was rescued at high tide by  Bill  Mervyn.  LOGGINGS CAMP CLOSED  The logging camp operated  here by McKenzie and Flavelle  for the Westminster Shook Mills  is curtailing its operations for  the winter. A few men are still  employed on a small setting situated at a low altitude, but when  this is finished there will bej very  little activity until the hill's are  clear of snow.  It is the first time in some  ten' years that heavy snowfall  in the hills has caused this camp  to shut down so early, February  having al,wa#;s been found to be  the worst month for lost time in  logging operations in this region.  The Osborne Logging Company,  who formerly owned this camp,  were generally able to keep their  imen employed up to Christmas  and fairly busy during January.  Mr. C. Alexander, superintendent for McKenzie and Flavelle has intimated that plans  are now be'ing drawn up in anticipation of increased activities  here, possibly employing more  men, when operations get under  way again in the new year.  Indian Court Case  Held At Sechelt  During the week of November 12th to 18th several cases  were tried before Magistrate G.  D. Phillips at Sechelt. On November 15th, Billy Jones, an  Indian, was fined $5.00 and  $3.50 costs under the Indian  Act for purchasing and consuming  liquor.  On November 16th a local  resident was fined $50.00 and  $4.50 costs under the Indian  Act for supplying liquor to an  Indian.  On November 18th an Indian  youth was charged with stealing  /merchandise from Sechelt wharf  and was committed to the boys'  industrial school. He was also  convicted of stealing an overcoat and a flashlight from a car.  OIL BURNERS HAZARD  A number of people in the  district have been installing oil  burners without obtaining permits. These must be obtained  from the local Assistant Fire  Marshall, Constable Aylward, at  Sechelt. One of the reasons for  this rule is to ensure that oil  burners are properly installed  so that they will not constitute  a fire hazard. .    '  s  DAVIS   BAY  Mrs. G.

' .  what zrs?  They are here again.. We see  them every year about this time.  '^Hefty" would be a descriptive  word, but certainly not "good-  looking". Fresh fish is their  food, and we are informed that  we needn't go fishing when  these babies are about.  DICTIONARY   DEFINITION  Sea Lions We are told they are.  Our interest aroused, we went  to the National Encyclopedia  and were referred to seals and  sea-elephants.    Then we  remem-  Good Story Too  It's nice having the ocean for  a front yard. After a good blow  practically anything may. turn  up on the doorstep���-or as near  the doorstep as one would care  to have it. After a recent southeaster I looked out the window  to see if there was anything doing and sure enuogh, there was  the Curran family aboard the  Queen Mary (their rowboat) in  an exporatory attitude out in the  bay. A few minutes later a thoroughly excited voice called out,  "pull on your boots and come  look at the 'biggest fish you ever  saw in your life.'* Hastily computing the margin of safety���  three days to Friday���I went  along.  WHAT WAS   IT?  It sure was a big fish, but  the question was WHAT. The  mysterious visitor was discovered-by Ed Curran when he went  to repair some -damage done by  the storm. Happening to glance  overside, he was amazed to see a  big rock where there never had  been one before. Further investigation revealed a large  quantity of fish, all in one piece.  My knowledge of fish is less than  elementary; I can recognize a  starfish at a glance, also a jellyfish, and am pretty certain of  cod, but outside of that fish is  just fish. Mrs. Curran plumped  for tuna, having seen a specimen at Catalina. Ed, with bis  usual caution was more noncommittal, but obviously inclined to the same opinion.  STREAMLINED  At any rate he was big, seven  feet long and an estimated five -  hundred pounds in weight,,with  a�� nose ,tliaf lobkejcT1 k's��Ifchough it  could poke into anyone's business and a mouth not overlarge  in proportion to the rest of him,  but well outfitted with a double  row of sharp triangular teeth.  Ed pointed put five fine "louvres"  on his side, so we concluded the  ventilation should be adequate.  He had no scales, 9but we d'is-  ' bered reading an amusing article, "Sea Lions���show offs of  the   Animal  World."  We do not know just what  species we have here, but having  watched them many times, we  can vouch for them. One look,  and a trained life-guard would  give his attention elsewhere, for  those swimmers can take care of  themselves. M one wants to see  skill in aquatics, just take a look  at their formation swimming as  two or three of thee swim lazily  side by side, dive, and come up  nose to nose; or just wateh  them racing. They surely make  Dominion records, but we have  no stop watch to mark their  time. As for holding your breath  under water while you count 60,  just see how high you can count  while these fellows are submerged.  LOTS  OF  OOMPH  Personality? Well, definitely  not shy or cowardly. They are  unwelcome visitors, but come  bouncing into the bay to "beard  the lion in his den, the Douglas  in his hall." Occosionaily there's  just one fellow on his own, sometimes there's a threesome, but  mostly we see them here in pairs.  QUICK TO COME AND GO  Their utter abandon is grand  to behold and we toss ,away,  mentally $t least, any clouds that  have sneaked up on us, and with  exuberance continue on our way.  The  eea   lions   also   continue  on  covered his hide was plenty  tough and his fins, if that's what  they were, gave a very streamlined   built-in-effect.  NOT A SHARK  We discussed the possibility  of our fish being a mere shark,  but Ed thought his figure (the  fish, I mean-) wasn't right, as it  was pleasantly plump almost to  his tail, when it slimmed very  suddenly.  Deciding that it would be interesting to observe a feline reaction to so much fish, the Cur-  ren  cats  were  notified.   At the  word   "fish"   both   Bruiser   and  Jeep hurried to the float, and we  had  some  difficulty  in  persuading them that the feast was in  the   opposite    direction.     They  were presene'd with a section of  "louvre"  hacked   off  with  some  difficulty, but both cats disdained the offering.  WHO KNOWS?  Tugboat crews sheltering in  the bay were calling our fish a  shark, but Mrs. Curran wasn't  tgoing to lose her tuna without  a fight, so she did a little research work, hunting through  National Geographic Magazines  for an article and photograph  she remembered having seen.  Unfortunately she didn't remember the date, and the search  took her all the way back to  1923, ending in a neatly bound  volume in the bookcase. The  years between looked to be unbounded as well as unbound.  There was a fine photograph of  a North Atlantic tuna. In those  waters they grow to be big fellows weighing as much as 1500  lbs. .iiltj i&iOnly .within,the..last  two ��; or v ��� thre e... years that tuna  iboats have been operating in  Puget Sound waters, and more  recently they have been going  out from Vancouver. It is possible that our fish came from  a tuna boat lost a few weeks ago,  but wherever he came from and  whatever he was, there was a  lot of him.  CREEK  Mrs. D.

Violet Streeter, Correspondent  "  ALLIED  EXEMPTION ACT, 1939  (Department of Mines)  NOTICE  'HE Allied Forces Exemption Act, 1939, provides that the assessment  j^ork on all mineral claims held under the provisions of the Mineral  Act by any member of the Allied Forces at the time of his joining such  Forces for service in the present War shall be deemed to have been done.  This protection extends for the duration of the War and for a period of six  months thereafter. Attention is drawn to the fact that the protection  shall not apply in respect of assessment work required to be done subsequent  to the transfer by a member of the Allied' Forces, or by his personal representatives, of his interest in the mineral claim. In other words, the new  owner immediately comes under the provisions of the Mineral Act and must  perform and record assessment work as required by that Act.  Example:  Anniversary date of mineral claim May 10th, 1946.  Bill of sale drawn and dated April 1st, 1946. New owner must perform  and record work as required by the Mineral Act on or before May 10th, 1946.  These provisions also apply in respect of leases held1 under the Placer-  mining Act.
