Owned and operated by Mr. and Mrs. George  Cormack for many years, it was  recently sold to  Mr.  and Mrs.  Richard  Laird.   The  former  is  the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank  Lyons of Redroofs. He was born  and raised in    Winnipeg    and  came to  the coast in  1938.   A  keen hockey player, he was a  member of    the    championship  team, Winnipeg Monarchs, during the season of 1936-37.   He  joined the RCAF in September  1939 and    went    overseas two  years later, when he saw plenty  of action as a fighter pilot with  a night-fighter squadron. Somewhere he has two notches for a  pair of enemy aircraft shot up  and also for the many trains he  wrecked in France and Belgium.  In August, 1942, he was shot  down and spent nine hours in a  rubber dinghy in the North Sea.  He was picked up by an air rescue unit.

Mrs. Dockar is a native of  Newbyth, Scotland, arriving in  Winnipeg some 25 years ago; she  shad two sons who served with  "the Cameron Highlanders, one  having been killed and the other is now married and living in  Australia.  The friendship of 30 years  brought about their decision to  join hands and hearts in matrimony and settle down at 'Bonnie Doon', Grantham's Landing. Mr. Farquhar is 82 and his  bride is 74. We wish them both  many years of happiness togeth^'  er. ���J. Rennie  home is Barnard Castle, County  Durham. Most of her earlier  nursing career was spent in hospitals situated in Yorkshire.

Long known as .a  popular summer resort, it had  become rather quiet during the  war years, but it has taken on  a new lease of life since the  new owners of the Redroofs  Trading Company, James M.  Cooper and William L. Frost,  have arrived on the scene. They  are very busy renovating some  of the buildings and adding  new features that will certainly  increase the popularity of the  place. Their general store opened this week for business.  As goods become available  the store will contain a good  line of groecries, drygoods, and  fishing tackle. Alterations are  being made to the dining room  to increase its already pleasant  atmosphere. It will be opened  only during the summer mctfi-  ths.. New cabins will be added  to the resort as material becomes available. One of the big  attractions of the resort wjll tye  a fleet of inboard motor boats  to be rented to those who like  boating or fishing.  Mr. Cooper originally came  from Ontario. Leaving there at  the age of seventeen he came  west and enlisted in the Canadian Air Force for the first war.  After the war was over he came  to Alberta where he was in the  men's furnishings business. In  1920 he came to Vancouver and  two years later started a garment factory which is still operating. He is married and has  two young daughters, aged nine  and eleven, Patricia and Marilyn  who are still in Vancouver v//th  their mother, but they are ail  looking forward to joining Mr.  Cooper here soon.  Mr. Frost spent his early  years in New Brunswick and  came to the coast in 1925. He  has a record of 20 years' service  in B. C. with General Motors.  In recent years he opfrated his  own business in Vancouver, under the trade name of Larry  Frost Ltd., and afterwards the  name was changed to Marine  parage.  During the war he held the  rank of lieutenant with the Ordinance   Corps.  BODY FOUND  BODY OF James R. S.

C._  .Page Three  Wins $1000 on Gag Show  Y  WILLING butt of a gag by  Ralph Edwards, who thinks  up the screwball antics for the  radio program "Truth or Consequences" (and pays off with  things like $1,000 bills) is Herb  Holland of Los Angeles, who  muffed a question on the program and in consequence had to  travel to Yellowknife, N.W.T.,  find a gold nugget and bring it  back to Hollywood, a total of  7,000 miles.  PRIZE���ONE GRAND  The prize was $1,000 if Holland found the nugget and returned by a certain date. Thanks  to the fast planes of the Canadian Pacific Airlines (and a  little help in finding the gold)  the ex-Pacific war veteran won  the prize.  He blazed a colorful trail  northward, for Ralph Edwards  is not one to stage a contest  without trimmings. Holland was  forced to wear a fur parka,  heavy boots, a tuque on his head  and to carry a miner's pick.  Furthermore, he wasn't allowed  to shave.  LOST WEIGHT  Under this load he lost some  weight through perspiration, especially under the hot California sun and the balmy weather  of Vancouver, but the thought  of a crisp new $1,000 bill sustained him.  He found the gold at the new  Salmita mine near Yellowknife,  aided somewhat by Mike Mitto,  veteran prospector, who happens to own the mine.

A Sound Financial Position  BRITISH COLUMBIA'S finances are such  as to enable ample provision for all  necessary services, including the most advanced public welfare legislation in Canada,  yet still retaining a net revenue surplus  available for contingent expenditures. This  favorable condition is well recognized by  investors, as witness recent bond issues  which were negotiated at lower rates than  ever before. As further evidence of British  Coumbia's sound management' the following facts are cited:  tj��.��-   ,.M(.t:t,'iC��  "'r^f^y^^BS DEBT DECREASE  Since 1933, the gross1 debt of the Province  has been decreased by $11,130,000. This  reduction, together with a rapid increase* in  population, has made possible a decrease in  the burden of debt interest service from  $11.01 per capita in 1933 to $6.27 per capita  in _945.  REVENUE SURPLUS  During the same period revenues, after  providing for ordinary expenditures, created  a gross surplus of $73,866,000. From this  sum $31,370,000 were appropriated for debt  redemption provisions; $14,745,000 for unemployment relief and $13*550,000 for capital works and special services. A net  revenue surplus, therefore, is available for  further appropriation.  EDUCATION GRANTS  Educational opportunities have been improved and equalized. The Province is now  paying 55 per cent of the cost of a high  basic standard of education.. By its latest  fiscal provisions it has relieved further  current tax burden on land and taxable  property by nearly $2,500,000 of which sum  $2,150,000 goes to municipal taxpayers?. In  addition, it will assume one-half of the cost  of new capital construction of schools.  REFORESTATION POLICY  Ever larger sums are being spent to conserve the forest wealth of the Province, to  reforest denuded areas and to establish  sustained and abundant forest yields.  PUBLIC WORKS EXPENDITURES  A vast programme of public works will  ensure highways and bridges adequate for  the needs of residents, industries and  tourists. Included in this programme are  the means to provide the construction of  new public buildings and additions to existing ones.  POWER FACILITIES  In an ever increasing measure rural areas  are being provided with electric light and  electric power.  LABOR LEGISLATION  ��  Laws and regulations governing labour  ensure to the workers standards that excell  those in other areas of the Dominion.  SOCIAL WELFARE  Provisions for the aged, the blind, tha  needy, and for the general health and welfare of the people are the most generous  in Canada.  RECONVERSION AND DEVELOPMENT  Progressive and positive policies have been  adopted to assure success in the task of  reconversion from a wartime to peacetime  economy. The opening up and development  of new areas with vast untapped natural  resources is progressing rapidly. This will  afford unequalled opportunities for new  residents and for new industrial ventures.  PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS  VICTORIA  86-A Page Four  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.  Friday, May 31, 1946  _3y W. Roberts .  o  ��  Editor's Note���We believe the  object Mr Roberts has in  mind here is to" snow that  money or conventional mat-  eiial is not '-o necescary to  having a very ime home. One  needs a cercam amount of  skill with ordinary tools, but  if you haven't got it almost  anyone can acquire it with  patience and lots oi practice.  But more than that, you have  to have the desire for such a  home at any cost to you of  time, which you can't count,  and backaches probably the  same in number. You'll learn  to use your head to figure  ways and means to save labor.  ���you'll accept setbacks and  get around them. But you'll  be a creator, and from being  that you'll have a v/onderful  time. Mr. Roberts has offered  to help anyone with specific  problems if they'll write him.  *    *    *  THERE WILL soon be another  batch of home builders along  this shore, just as there was after World War I. So it might.be  as well to try to help them in  this work which has been ours  for so many years.  It is very clear that lumber  will be in short supply and expensive, so one may well go to  the woods for such things, just  as our fathers did.  Back in 1936 you remember  that things were hard. No jobs  and no money for most of us.  At that time I said "We have all  the time we want, so let's build  a real log home, one which may  show another that such things  can yet be done; then should  even one go on and do likewise  we have helped another man."  A home out here calls for so  much more than one built in the  city. We have to put in our" own  waterworks, roads, and many  other things besides building  just a house.  At our place we have built a  workshop with a cement floor  to hold the logs which are upright with the watertank atop.  It holds a thousand gallons of  water, which is pumped by a  windmill, home-made, or if  there is no wind, a gas engine  and pump. x  The well was dug and a cement casing put in. Pipes also  were needed to and about the  house for hot and cold water.  Another workshop 22x16 was  built from lumber which came  ashore from .an overturned  scow. We happened to" gather  some 2500 feet of this and it has  made a fine build*ing where we  build boats, r>ens for rabbits and  other animals and fowl. It is a  two-storey building the loft  shop above the goat's barn, and  which holds their feed as well.  Then comes the home, with  its 20 log walls of cedar, caulked  the same as a scow, with oakum.  Inside the peeled logs are oiled  and varnished, with wide 3-ply  upon'the log rafters, which are  finished the same, making a  clean finish for walls and ceiling.  The floors are cement, painted  in bright colors after the manner of old Welsh houses, with a  good floor varnish over all.  Log lounge, tables, seats and  stairway are all light varnish,  wide-hewn logs for steps to every floor, for each is at a different level. The sunray windows  with no two pieces of glass alike in windows and doors, the  kitchen with its big window up  to the. ceiling and turning the  outside dining room and the  kitchen into a big cool worker*��� overlooking the lily pool  and garden through the nine-  foot windows which so many-  people want for their own front  rooms, are all lovely.  We hear many different remarks as people look over this  work. There are some who see  only a lot of hard work though  they themselves have little to  show for their days. Some of  them may have more money  than we but none has enough to  buy this. It has given us so much  pleasure to make.  To any of you who are interested and would like to see for  themselves, we extend a cordial  invitation.  Smoking Soon  More Expensive  RESULTS of the removal of  price ceilings on tobaccos and  increased prices in all lines will  be exhausted, they state, and  a jump of 10 cents per pound is  beginning to be felt in this district, dealers state.  As yet the only increase to  affect local consumers is a raise  in the price of half-pound containers. Wholesalers and some  stores still have limited stocks  of large containers at the old  price, but these stocks will soon  prevail.  Leirsch Praises  Work of Sloan  On Forests  "NO MAN has learned so much  , about;any one. subject in such r.  a short time, * and become an  authority as has Chief Justice  Cloan in his investigation of the  forestry resources and charges  of their exploitation", stated  Doctor John Leirsch, head of  the department of forestry of  the University of British Columbia in an address to the  Powell River and District Forestry Association in the supper  room last Friday night. Professor Leirsch was speaking on behalf of Mr. O'Brien of the Powell River Company, who was  unable to attend.  P. R. Lockie gave an illuminating description of what is entailed in the work of the semiannual snow survey, and completed his remarks with a brief  description of the terrain and  problems faced in the Powell  River Companies semi-annual  survey at the head of the lake.  Pictures taken on recent trips  were also shown.  The meeting was the last of  the season, and was another in  the regular series that have  been sponsored throught the  winter by the Powell River and  District Forestry association.  The meetings were open to the  public without charge or obligation, and without even a collecting basis featured featured  high ranking men in British  Columbia forestry circles to explain what is going on in the  woods, and where are .resources  are going and what protection  is being given to them.  The meetings, now finished  for the summer recess will be  resumed sometime in the fall at  a date to be announced later.,  Finishing the meeting was a  moving technicolor out Weyerhaeuser Timber located at Long-  view and Everett, Washington.  The picture, titled Trees and  Homes showed forcibly modern  methods of handling lumber on  a large scale by one of the biggest mills in the country.  A LOUISIANA man is in the uncomfortable  position of being both pro-strike and anti-  strike. As a railway engineer he says, "We  railroad men have to get a raise in pay". But  as the owner of a screen-factory whose employees are on strike he says, "I can't afford  to give those guys a dollar and a half a day  more."  But if the engineer factory-owner is seeing  both sides of the wage question, so are his  striking employees. As factory-workers they  are saying by a strike, "We factory men have  to get a raise in pay." But as payers of freight  rates which affect prices they are no doubt  also saying. "We can't afford to give those guys  who work on the railroads more money."  It is to be hoped that the perplexity of this  factory-owning engineer will get wide publicity. For his situation Is not greatly different  from that of the average person���on either  side of the international boundary. In broad  terms everybody wants more pay, but doesn't  want to have to pay more���-whether to carry  on a business or to buy the things his family  needs.  Quite clearly we can't have it both ways.  Higher wages mean higher prices. If every  person got a twenty-five percent pay increase  nobody would be any better off. What people  need, in Canada as in the United States, is not  more money but more buying power for the  money they get and have. The only way to  build the buying power of the dollar is to  produce more goods.  Redistributing dollars in a commodity-vacuum doesn't solve anybody's troubles.  Good Riddance  LITTLE GROUND for criticism of the dropping  of the milk subsidy is seen by the Financial  Post���providing the estimated $20 millions  resultant annual saving to the Dominion Government is passed along to taxpayers.  "It was never intended that these various  wartime food subsidies should become permanent, and now that the war is over the sooner  we are able to get away from them the better,"  says the Post in a leading editorial. "For the  people at large they represented no real sav- ;  "For an average householder the 2-cent per  quart milk subsidy meant a saving of about  $20 on his annual milk bill, but the Government had to collect at least the same amount  from? him in taxes to pay the subsidy. Indeed,  on the sound theory that the more transactions  are involved the higher the cost, it is very  likely that to pay out $20 in actual subsidy the  Government had to collect considerably more.  "And about the whole business of subsidies  there were lots of complications, mostly un-/  foreseen, that we can well afford to see go. In  top place was the general confusion about real  prices. Freight assistance on feeds and fertilizers, various bonuses on complementary or  competitive line, and plain red tape so dedevil-  led the whole farm picture that there were few  if any experts who could figure tht exact cost  or even market value of any given product. In  the old days a farmer knew exactly what a  bushel of grain was worth, or a hog or a can  of milk. Today that is well nigh impossible.  Market quotations are almost meaningless.  There is a domestic price for wheat and an  export price. The old relationship between  the price of cheese, butter and fluid milk has  been upset and so has the normal division  in the flow of raw milk into these separate  dairy channels."  Bible Reading  SEEK YE the Lord while He may be  found, call ye upon Him while He is  near: Let the wicked forsake his way,  and the unrighteous man his thoughts:  and let him return unto the Lord, and He  will have mercy upon him; and to our God,  for He will abundantly pardon. For My  thoughts are not your thoughts, neither  are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.  For as the Heavens are higher than the  earth, so are My ways higher than your  ways, and my thoughts than your  thoughts.  ��� So shall My word be that goeth forth  but of My mouth: it shall not return unto  Me void, but it shall accomplish that  which I please, and it shall prosper in the  thing whereto I sent it.���ISA. 55 6-9, 11.  A MONTREAL lady plans to set up a committee in Toronto who will teach the people of  that city to be more tolerant toward French-  speaking Canadians. In due time somebody in  Toronto will respond by naming a committee of  Montrealers to teach their townsfolk better  manners toward English-speaking Canadians.  No doubt there is in both cities a promising  field for missionary effort along this line. But  the prospect of success would seem better if  promoters of the idea confined themselves  respectively to their own home town. Thus,  while she may not suspect it, there is a strong  likelihood that Toronto folks will resent the  Montreal lady's' suggestion that they need  leadership from outside. And an equally strong  chance that Montreal people- will take umbrage when some one in Toronto takes it upon  himself or herself to name of committee of  instruction for them.'  Tolerance is something that can be most  effectively preached at home. And for fairly  well known reasons Montreal and Toronto are  neither of them likely to take kindly to an  evangelistic campaign inspired in the other.  It is written that in another part of the  world people once "fought like devils for conciliation". Let us hope it won't come to that  because a Montreal lady wants to lighten the  darkness of Toronto and some one in Toronto i  may undertake to do as much for Montreal.  Tough, Brother  IN THE LATEST version of the old dialogue  Pat was calling on Mike and was met at the  door by Mrs. Mike. "Is Mike at home?" said  Pat.  "Of course he's at home," said Mrs. Mike,  "can't you see his shirt on the line?"  Now, not everyone has to stay home because his shirt is in the wash but, from the 5  latest reports of a Canadian Press survey of  men's clothing supplies, the day will not be {  far distant unless some action can be taken to ;  speed production and distribution of men's '  clothing. No other single shortage in some >  time has caused the same amount of humorous i}  comments as the shortage of men's shirts and |  yefc/thisf^ame shortage is far fronlf-humorous |  to the poor -Jt male with a frayed collar and jf  turned-up sleeves. ?  According to the dominion-wide survey of the (  Canadian Press, men's clothing is in shorter  supply at the moment than at any time in  recent years. Certainly it is harder to buy  such articles of clothing as shirts, suits, shorts  and socks than at anytime during the war.  The demand, too, is at its peak, with thousands  of men just out of uniform combing the stores  for the long-awaited civvies.  This clothing shortage has been apparent  for long enough now that something could  have been done to speed supplies. Canadian  men are going to have a hard time contributing  to the national clthing collection this fall if  they don't get a replacement for that old  shirt that is in the wash.  %  Smile Awhile  "Stand up!" shouted the evangelist. "Stand  up if you want to go to heaven."  Everybody stood up but on old man.  "Don't you want to go to heaven?" shouted  the preacher.  "Sure I do," replied the old man, "but I  ain't goin' with no excursion."  ��j  ��he ��oast Jfjews  Published Every Friday  by  The Coast News Limited  Registered office���Powell River,  B.C.

THE POWELL River company  is rationing its output of newsprint in an effort to supply its  customers as long as possible  should there be no early settle-;  ment of the lumber industry  strike.  B.

Golden Palomino  Captures Fancy of  Alberta Ranchers  THE PALOMINO, golden horse  of the golden west, has captured the fancy of ranchers of  the foothills province of Alberta  ���but in the cold book of rules  ���he has a strike against them.  The Palomino, which boasts a  golden coat and silver mane,  was originally a thoroughbred.  Thestype^was; crossed with the  cream-colored "buckskin mare"  of the Indians, the progeny having a distinctive golden tingle.  Alberta has possibly a dozen  of the Palomino stallions, agricultural authorities say, but, not  being thoroughbred, they are  not recognized as breeding stock  eligible for registration under  the Federal Stallion Enrolment  act.  The reason is that whatever  the attractions of the type, they  do not breed true to color. For  example, a gangly-legged colt  sired by a chestnut stallion bred  to a Palomino mare probably  would not be of pure color and  hence would be ineligible for  enrolment among the equine  400  as  a purebred  and  hence  FIT THE BODY Scientifically r e c o rd e d mea-  jl A a   J. xajj u\ju a   surements 0f 3,867 persons in  seated posture was the basis of these *'Sleepy Hollow"  fchairs, best ever developed for comfort, which the Canadian Pacific Railway is installing, in 35 new air-conditioned  passenger coaches on which delivery is expected early in  1947. Built to "give" with body curves and distribute  weight properly, the chair is the result of considerable  research work by Harvard University experts who took  the measurements of the more than 3,000 volunteers in  railway terminals of two of America's largest cities.  For shoe-shedders an adjustable footrest is provided  (insert), it having been determined women like to ride in  stocking feet as they nap.  Cost of the new chairs alone will1 be rhore than $300,000,  with this figure being part of the four million-dollar appropriation, the first largest passenger equipment order it. has  been possible to make since 1939, with double bedroom-  roomette cars and express-baggage cars as well as passenger coaches included in the appropriation.  The Canadian Pacific is the first railway in the  Dominion to approve the new chairs and it will further  pioneer in the 35 new coaches with the installation of the  first electrically-refrigerated water coolers on a Canadian  road.  recognized as of standard breeding stock.  The states of Colorado and  Texas have Palomino stock  books of their own, but even  these states, which contain  horse fanciers aplenty, do not  recognize the other's breed.  |  i  ll-illlHiaillHIliHIllHillHIIIIBIIIIS  The  SECRET COVE MARINE BASIN  at the  Government Float  I  i  f  i  Secret Cove |  IS NOW OPEN FOR BUSINESS |  GROCERIES ��� COMMERCIAL FISHING TACKLE i  ORDERS TAKEN FOR FRESH MEAT |  MARINE SERVICE STATION |  HOME OIL PRODUCTS I  1  Let us know what your requirements are and we will do our best to fill them I  A Telephone has been installed for your convenience |  :!!W!il!BMIH!lllHilliB!liiBI!!ffl^  ^immmmmumm  SNAPPED as they left St.  John's Interdenominational  Church after their wedding last  month are Mr. and Mrs. Thomas  Higginson. The bride is the former Miss Louise Mills, daughter of Mrs. Walter Mills of  Davis Bay. They are making  their home at Davis Bay .  Mr. Higginson returned last  summer after five years with  the armed services overseas; his  bride was a former employee at  Whitaker's Trading Post, Davis  Bay.  CALL HIM what you will . . .  Ogopogo or Caddy ... but he  has been seen in these waters  for the first time. Mr. Bert Harper and his daughter Rosalind  got a close-up series of glances  of him last Saturday evening  when he showed himself a few  feet offshore opposite the Harper home near 9th Street and  Marine Avenue at Westview  The animal (or fish?) was between the dolphin and the shore.  Three distinct humps rose  out of the water, in addition  to the head. The length, Mr.  Harper thought, would be about  45 feet from head to tail in a  straight line, adding whatever  might be necessary to allow for  the humps. Five time Caddy or  Ogo rose, looked about, and disappeared. He was traveling in  the direction of Stillwater.  No . . . Mr. Harper's camera  wasn't loaded. Had it been, he  would have been the first B.C.  resident to get any pictures of  the beastie, for the light was excellent (it was at 7:30 p.m.)  and he had a grandstand view  from the upper windows of his  house and also from his first  vantage point, on the beach.  They estimated the body at  ten to twelve inches in diameter.  "It was perfectly round, smooth  and shiny, and about the color  of green seaweed, "Mr. Harper  said. "He kept his head on the  water line, so it was impossible  to tell much about its shape.  There were no humps or spikes  on the body or head, and no fins  visible.  "It was travelling about four  or five miles per hour. It would  disappear altogether, then the  head would reappear, followed  by the undulating humps. It  was quite a beast," he concluded.  Several other resident saw the  animal (or fish?).  The M.V. Gulf Wing was passing the spot at the time, headed  for the Westview wharf, but  Captain Roy Barry a reports that  none of the passengers reported  seeing Carry or Ogo. "I was too  busy watching the dock for the  landing to notice anything  alongside", said the Captain.  So perhaps we may add still  one more tourist attraction to  the many which Powell River  District can boast. The Island  and the Okanagan has nothing  on us now.  Ross Gibson Spends  Furlough at Home  ROSS GIBSON, serving a seven-year    enlistment    in    the  R.C.N., is spending his furlough  at   home   in   Gibsons.   He   has  just returned from a cruise on  board H.M.C.S. "Uganda", on  which he served as PO. Cook.  The Uganda is one of Canada's  two cruisers, was the only Canadian warship to participate actively in Japanese water during the war. On this latest  cruise, was the only Canadan  cruise, a good-will circum-navi-  gation of South America, she  was the first Canadian warship  to sail around Cape Horn. The  ship remained five days at all  major ports~of-call, giving the  crew ample time to visit such  diversified surroundings as ancient Inca cities and the beautiful port of Rio de Janeiro.

By ADELAIDE  THE SMALL baby���Colic: If  baby has colic it is an indication that his feeding and  sleeping habits require to be  regulated and you should consult you physician. Colic is due  to pressure of gas or acid in the  bowels and causes the baby  severe pain. It occurs in the  young baby who is getting too  much milk, who is nursing too  quickly, or. in babies who are  constipated. His abdomen may  be hard and distended. He draws  up his legs and cries sharplfcr  and spasmodically. Hbld' the  baby up over your shoulder to  assist him tq belch up the gas.  He may also by relieved if y_��u  apply warmed flannel cloths to  his abdomen or lay him on a  hot water bottle, taking care  that it is well stoppered and  properly covered and warm, but  not hot enough to burn his plicate skin. Abdominal pain may  be due to condition othyr than  colic and you should not give  any medicine except on the advice of your doctor.  Because disease may be communicated to the baby by kissing,  never  permit  anyone  to   .  kiss  him.  If you yourself feel  that you must kiss him on the   ,  back of the neck���never qn the   |  mouth.

Mr. Ernie Pearson,  The Coast News,  Halfmoon Bay, B. C.  Dear Sir:  It has been our privilege, as  field representative for the National Film Board to serve with  16 mm sound film the schools  and communities that your  newspaper also services, since  January,  1946.  We wish to express our appreciation for the kindness and  co-operation that you have extended to us in our monthly visits and to tell you that the  publicity given so generously by  your paper has been of tremendous assistance in letting people  of Gibsons Landing, Roberts  Creek, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay,  and the Pender Harbour area  know what the N.F.B. is, what  the shows will be for the month  and the interest aroused by tHY  film showing. One month we  missed your deadline with our  show dates and the comments  that we received to the effect  that the Coast News didn't have  the dates of showing were well,  over the fifty mark that month  when we came through on our  circuit.  This representative has been  checking over our publicity factors and we have reached xhr  conclusion that the columns of  yours paper rate 75 percent in  the matter of informing people  that the N.F.B. service will be  in the community on a certain  date���they have contributed, to  increased attendance and interest. -  The   community   ideals   and  the  policy  of your  newspaper  I and the policy of *the N. ��&<:_$.  yare identical��� service to the  community  and  its  population  ��� arousing an interest in the  personal problems of our neig\-  bors and the community problems���to   help   people   gain   an  understanding of these problems  ���to the end that their lives, our  lives, will be happier. and contented.  In closing, thanks a million  for your very great and much  appreciated assistance and rjs^f  your paper continue in the fine  tradition that- has been it's very  own since you first started publication. _  Yours sincerely,  Harold Box, 0  Field Representative.

Anyway the old brain has joined the vast  majority, and gone on strike. It refuses to get interested in anything constructive or useful. It eyes that new, but somewhat  ponderous Upton Sinclair volume with lack-lustre eye. It gets  inordinate amusement from the most trivial little jokes���like this  one for instance:  Two ants were running along at a great rate across-a cracker  box when one asked, "Why are we going so fast?" "Don't you  see?" said the other, "It says, 'Tear along the dotted line'."  Then there's this somewhat startling slip from the Brooklyn  Daily Eagle, "At this point the gallery deserted Mrs. Blank to  watch .Miss Blank whose shorts were dropping with amazing  rapidity."  Embarrassing no end!  Then I rather liked the one about the misjudged husband  whose wife was getting a divorce. Said the irate lady: "My husband is an out-and-out loafer who thinks of nothing day and night  but horse-racing. He doesn't even remember our wedding day."  "That's a lie," shouted the outraged husband. "We were married  the day Twenty Grand won the Wood Memorial."  Liked too, the comment of Sinclair "Red" Lewis when informed that his ex-wife Dorothy Thompson was being mentioned  for presidential nomination, - "I wonder," he said wistfully, "if  they'll let me write My Day."  Speaking of Dorothy Thompson���her views have certainly  changed for the worse since that historic day of the disgraceful  Bund rally at Madison Square Garden. Dorothy, as I recall, gave  them the old Bronx cheer until they got her out���with the aid of  the police. But that was before our Dorothy developed into one  of the worst of the Russia-baiters.  However, it's too hot for politics, so here's another little story:  A man was driving his car along when he came to a traffic  signal. While the light was red a pedestrian planted himself  directly in front of the jalopy. The light turned to green, but the  gent moved nary a step. Finally the driver leaned out and gently  reminded him, "Say bud, the light is green. How about getting  out of my way?" "Sorry I can't oblige," replied the character,  "Your car is on my foot."  Since June is just around the corner this little story sounds  a topical, if somewhat warning note:  A wedding limousine rolled up Fifth Avenue the other day  with a large placard tied to the rear bumper. It read, "Careless  talk caused this."  Ho hum.  It isn't the heat���it's the humidity.  PENDER   HARBOUR  Mrs. Little, Correspondent  Capt. H. H. Sparling has received his discharge from the  army.

HEARD  PENDER   HARBOUR  THE SQUAMISH Board of  Trade held a very successful  24th of May Celebration. For  a while it looked as if the  weather man was not going to  co-operate but the afternoon  turned out fine.  Events    of   the   day   started  with   the   parade   of   the   May  Queen and her attendants from  the   P.G.E.   Hall  to  the   sports  ground.    The    procession    proceeded from the trucks to the  platform which was vrey nicely  decorated    with    boughs    and  flowers. The twelve little flower  girls,  six  in  pink  dresses  and  six in blue, presented a lovely  picture.     Then     came     Daryl  Smith   as   Record   Bearer   who  was   followed   by   the   retiring  Queen,     Miss    Ann    Morrison  whose    attendants    were    Miss  Doreen    Confortin    and    Miss  Norma  MacDonald.   Her  train-  bearers   were   Jimmie   Antosh  and    Karl    Aalten.    The    hew  Queen,  Miss Mary-Ann Jacob-  sen, with Miss Christine Nygard  and   Miss   Watt   as   attendants  and  Bobby  Hurst  and  Ronnie  Burnett   as   train   bearers   followed.  After the crowning of the  Queen, any who wished to take  pictures were allowed to do so.  The names of the little flower  girls were Marilyn Holland,  Maureen Bruntjen, Ruth Jacob-  son, Joanne Feschuk, Patricia  Moore, Patricia Wilson, Wilma  Jordan, Edith Marchant, Dianne  Carson and Sheila Nygard.  The May Day dance was the  next on the program. Pupils of  grades 1, 2 and 3 took part and  were trained by Miss Patricia  Lundell assisted by Miss Ruth  Morrison. Their time and ef-  ��� forts were rewarded by the way  in which the children performed.  Among others who gave of  their time were Mrs. A. Munro,  who was in charge of the May  Queen procession assisted by  Mrs. J. Hartley. Mrs. E. Aldridge was responsible for the  little flower girls' costumes,  Mrs. R. Barr arranged the baskets for the stools, Mrs. H. Graham tinted the new ribbons for  the May Dancers, Mrs. L.  Brooks made the bouquets,  !Mrs. N. Brooks, Mrs. J. Frost,  Mrs. N. MacDonald and Mrs. A.  MacDonald did the make-up.  The members of the Board  of Trade entertainment committee did a great deal to help  the ladies make a success of the  procession. ��� The remainder of  the afternoon was spent runing  races and a softball game between the Junior Elks and Jr.  High School. The Junior Elks  won by a score of 19-18.  In the evening the new  Queen took her place at the  head of the procession and the  children enjoyed dancing until  9 p.m.  A dance, for the adults followed from 10 to 12.

THE SUNSET Softball team,  playing their first competitive game this season, took the  wrong end of a 13-7 score  against Crucil Loggers at Sechelt on Tuesday, May 21. Art  Alexander, of T, R. Godfrey  and Co., supplied team trans-  poration, and a number of local  vehicles lent their support to  the expedition. The game was  one of those sad last-inning  disasters, but the preliminary  defeat has only made the Sunset lads the more determined to  avenge their pride at Port Mellon Sunday, May 26.  Ship Sails From  San Francisco To  Test Atom Bomb  THE FLAG ship "Mt. McKin-  ley", set out last week from  San Francisco to fathom some  of the mysteries of the atomic  bomb and its influence on tomorrow's navy.  First port of call for the Mr.  McKinley, amphibious command  ship of the atom bomb test ex-  pidition, was Pearl Harbour,  where nearly all 74 target ships  were riding at anchor, awaiting  inspection before they proceed  to the "bomb's bulls' eye" at  Bikini.  Thirty-three sjiips awaited  sailing dates in west coast ports.  At Pearl Harbor, Bikini or en  route were 177 others.  The final, full dress-rehearsal  is scheduled for about June 25.

Apart from the 9-act minor tragedy of errors the visitors  had a fairish time, what with  the amiability of the hosts and  the salubrious ocean voyage and  all. To quote catcher Bill (just  call me "back") Skellett, "there  must be something we can beat.  Maybe we should try the Temperance League." End of quote.
