 Ming  PROVINCIAL LIBRARY  VICTORIA  Meets March 5  By Lester Peterson  j. The regular monthly meeting  of Branch 109 met in the Legion hall, Gibson's, on Tuesday,  : March 5, Reverend Snowden  \ presiding. The success of the  }��� last smoker motivated a pro-  I posal to hold another. The sug-  I gested date is March 28, with  j all Legion members invited to  I attend.  j; A most gratifying aspect of  | this meeting was the membership report. The number of new  I members sworn in at the com-  |mencement. of the meeting  ���swelled the total enrollment to  fpver one hundred, with a possibility of many more ex-servicemen yet to join the league.  '" \ group this size, non-sectarian  nd non-partisan, cannot fail  ito have a voice that' will be  jj'ieard on any matter "it wishes  o promqte. * 7  Two members of the local  were nominated delegates to at-  ;end the provincial convention,  jio be held this month, and bring  ^ack a report on any appropriate proceedings of the gathering.  poasi News Fire  pees Pearson  In Hero's Role  HOUR   AND   one-half  year-old  "h Kendall    Pearson    was    the  f|ero of a successful attempt to  |ave The Coast News office at  |_alf Moon  Bay  from  destruction  by fire; last  Monday.

Next   commissioners   meeting  will   be   held   on   Wednesday,  March 20.  Hospital Question  Discussed by  Squamish People  Friday evening, March 8, a  public meeting was held in the  P.G.E. hall to discuss a doctor's residence with a two or  three bed emergency hospital  annex. The hospital committee  were laboring under the impression that a house was available.  However, events of the evening  disclosed that this is not altogether certain. The committee is going to continue with its  investigation and a questionnaire is being prepared by the  saiu committee to be sent to  every household. Iri this manner it is hoped to get the public's reaction and also hopes  they will be answered and returned prpi^tiy.,    r   y ���  ^*ub executive was held in the  feommunity hall Thursday evening, March 7.

RESPONSIBILITY  It was pointed out that Board  of Trade's suggested straightening project was termed imprac-  (Continued on Page 8)  entering and Mealing the $39,  and was sentenced to 18 months  in Oakalla jail.  Plans Expansion  ANOTHER sign of the growth  around Gibsons Landing is  that the familiar old church at  the top of the hill is getting too  small for its congregation.  The church officers,, under  the direction of Rev. J. E. Snowden, are quietly going ahead  with plans for a Memorial and  Thanksgiving Chancel that will  increase the seating capacity.  Mr. E. J. Atlee, kindly offered  to contact most families in the  parish with the result that generous gifts of money and offers  of help in the ' actual work of  building were given;  The opportunity occurs for  anyone wishing to give any of  the various furnishings as memorials or thank offerings. Two  small stained glass windows in  the sanctuary are planned for  later on. Vestry space is allowed for in the plans, and it is  hoped to have the enlarged  church in full use this summer.  Offers of help, e?ther of labor,  furnishings or finance will be  gratefully received by th_\  people's warden, Mr. Charles  Robinson or any of the church  officers.

D. Gilbert  The doings of Mrs. Jones and  Mrs. Smith faded into the background as March came in like a  lion and precipitated a landslide above the intake to the  Sechelt, Selma Park, water supply The residents regarded the  dark brown liquid that gushed  from their taps with horror and  dismay, while owners of wells  tried to commiserate without  looking smug, and no guest was  more welcome than the one that  arrived complete with a bottle  of clear liquid.  The local goldfish wondered  if a London pea-soup fog had  descended upon them and were  grateful for the lack of dangerous traffic- in their territory.  However ,as always, there was  a bright side to the murky question���one teaspoonful of tea was  enough for any sized pot, the  coloring being supplied free of  charge, and the children whose  natural instincts lure them to  wallow in mud puddles, were  able to turn the usual unwelcome bath into a pleasure usually denied them by unco-opera-  tive parents, and last but not  least ramy days were welcome  as there was no landslide in  heaven and the drops that descended were bright and translucent and made lovely tea!

Eager Beaver  OUR NATIONAL animal, the  beaver, which is used to typify Canada, is quite a remarkable little > fellow and can be  easily den-esticated if one  knows his habits. Unlike the  muskrat, who lives in a burrow until ice forms and then  builds his lodge, the beaver lies  in  his  home  virtually  all year  'round.  Beavers have been ^aiown to  fall trees with diameters of 28  to 32 inches and the record  cut to be a Cottonwood of 42  inches diameter. To do this must  have taken the little workman -quite some time, since it  is computed that a beaver would  cut 9 inches during an eight  hour night.

Virgil Lane and his boys certainly gave out with some good  music. It was a treat to hear  a band which played well and in  a smart showman-like manner.  The well arranged program  showed thoughtful attention to  proper band arrangement and  each number was carefully and  pleasingly presented. The band  was generous with its music,  and did not allow any lapses  between numbers. This was the  first time in Sechelt that we  have had a dance band that entertained the ears as well as the  feet. The rhythm section was  particularly good. Instead of the  usual boiler factory crashes one  generally hears, the traps were  handled with real musicianship,  and every tap of the sticks  meant something.  More attention to smoothness  and  accuracy   of  pitch  in   the  brass section, with cleaner at-j  tacks on all entrances where ?|  the Seconds come in with the J  firsts would assist in bringing!  this group out in the spotlight. $  Thank you boys and welcome J  back. I  The pavilion does not allow |  for showing off a group of this!  kind to its best advantage be-1  cause of poor acoustics, and!  small floor space. I  The tasteful decorations, clean.1  hall  and the arrangements forf  bringing in the band were dueM  we believe, to Mrs. Frederick-^]  son, hostess of Sechelt Inn.   Itjj'  is encouraging to note that wejl  have a few business people M  Sechelt who are looking aheadl-  and doing their best to improve!  things in general. ' i\  Let us all get behind the Se/  chelt   Community   Centre,   ancl  give Sechelt a chance to marc^f  forward.   We have been mark  ing time long enough.

C.  .Page Three  Serial Story  hy Aubrey Boyd  "There was a light-fingered  person on the ship," Rose said,  "who had come North to dip for  gold in miners* pockets. I suggested that he try Owens', and  so I obtained Dalton's own letter.'.  "Where is the letter now?" the  Judge asked when the hum caused by this strange admssion subsided.  "I still have it."  Judge Dugas   tugged  meditatively at the white linen neckpiece  '> under his chin.  i Rose continued' carefully. She  | had resolved to outplay Fallon  I'for the gold. If Owens had been  f:s dependable, she might have told  L:hm the truth about Fallon and  planned the counter-move with  hm. As it was, she laid her own  |t plans.  She knew���as Owens did not������  [-���that while Fallon could threaten  Ir.the rancher with exposure of the  fNevada crime, he couldn't carry  the bluff through without exposing himself as Reeves.  When  Speed  and  his  partner  | arrived   at   Skagway,   she   chose  f, them   On  sight   as  the kind  of  Weil sher Heeded, and made them  fa-' blind proposition to do a trafr-  [iing job for her^tfetfsistmg hi the  lliutention after they refused.  I;   Her account of what followed  | explained  several questions that  | had; puzzled them.    She ascribed.  I Owens'    death    to    fear.      The  (drunken   rancher   had   crumpled  under Fallon's threat, told every-  ;thing he; knew, and then between  fear of judgment and more drink  fe! drown his fear, had drowned  ItiMeelf.  f]                   | With Owens go$e, Ballon had  Jtried to hold Pete, believing she  [might know more than he had  learned from Owens, and realiz-  |ihg that she herself was a very  desirable; unclaimed prize. These  points Rose conveyed by suggestion    rather  than   direct    state-  :?  ?ment, but they were none the  ijtess clear. She ' described the  [peculiar turn that had thrown  ���Speed and Maitland. into a clash  faf their own with Fallon on the  trail, allowing Pete to win free  yover the pass. The first idea she  drew from this was that Pete  had taken them into her confidence, but���as she now reminded  ade and the court���if they had  been interested in the gold at  that time they could have killed  ^Fallon without incurring blame,  and with a big saving of trouble  ;to themselves.  ��  -On their return to Skagway for  | their horses and outfit,  she had  y been' all the more determined to  fuse  them  because  of their feud:  i with Fallon, and had tried to in-  ' terest   them   in   the   gold.

Remembering  yhw the stranger*had been killed  \ in  Carson,  she  suspected Fallon  of   having ��� prompted    this    ambush.

There   was   a   joker   in  the game."  Wade stirred in his chair. The  crowd murmured, fearng another  objection.  "Part of Dalton's letter read,"  Rose quoted evenly, " 'You would  not know me on sight. I've been  living native style, to keep the  prospect and so on covered. Wait  at the head of Lake Lebarge till  the trail's clear after the freeze-  up. If we miss connections on  the lakes, camp there till spring,  and if you don't hear from me  before then, float, the outfit down  the river and then contact  the U. S. Marshal of the train  holdup. I mean Fallon. My motive is to see him ride into his  own   deadfall  and   laugh  in  his  face!"  Her eyes flashed at Fallon's  clenched hand.

He  was afraid of Malohe's interest  in that piece of gold. It disappeared from the marshal's safe  when he left Skagway. A telltale bit of evidence he couldn't  leave at large. But a fascinating  keepsake he wouldn't destroy.  He's trying to shift it now! The  luck piece���the proof that outplays and hangs him! I>o I win?"  Her voice lifted with an indescribable taunting challenge.  Fallon  was   on   his   feet���savage,    hate-maddened,   yet somehow   still   commanding   himself  and   the   mute  attention of  the  Court.

While his hearers stiffened under the shock of the announcement he flung at them, he wheel-  on Rose with a movement as  swift as light.  "As for you, you b���-. 1"  he yelled���  Only one pair of eyes caught  the lightning gleam of the drawn  gun. There was a stunning double report. Fallon's gun went out  of his hand as if he had thrown  it away. With a blankly staring  look he sagged in a crumpling  fall, dropped by a bullet in the  brain from a gun which Speed  had jerked from the holster of  the belated police guard.  %t seemed that his body was  ��till falling when Speed jumped  the courtroom floor and leaped  for the open window.  The* fractional margin of another instant or of one wild shot  might have carried him through.  Then, with the river before him  and a long shore-line of wharves  and docked barges, there is no  telling what the'Mounted Police  might have had to write on their  lawless  man-getting  record.  But the  odds were too steep.  A gun crashed as his foot touched the sill, and Speed fell backward into the courtroom.  For an tttst'ftttt the court stood  dazed fcn the swirling smoke.  The bar of the prisoner's dock  broke in splinters; Maitland was  struggling in the hold of two  police guards to reach his partner.  Yet even in that frozen moment the wheel of justice turned.  Judge Dugas looked down on the  fallen outlaw with a curious stillness, and then at Wade, whose  response, though no one heard  it, was translated to the police  guards.  "Release   the  prisoner."  Half-lifting Speed out of a  widening pool of blood, Maitland  had a blurred awareness of Pete  on his other side. The outlaw  leaned against their supporting  arms, deeply breathing the cool  breeze from snowy peaks that  came through the open window.  "A doctor���" Maitland tried to  say, but his heart strangled the  words in his throat, and tears  rained on his partner's reddened  shirt.  Speed looked up at him mistily  and shook his head. "I don't ask  for no better run of luck than  this, Bud. Always figured I'd���  fall in some mountain pass alone  ���and here���'" He paused at  something beyond his power to  say. "We both got what we  looked for���and more���no'y not  where we was lookin'." His eyes  rested on .the" sun-burnished gold  of Pete's hair, and strayed back  to his partner with a ghost of hi&  old-time ruminating smile. "Gold  is where you find it, like-r-Steiii-  er said."  The strength seemed to ebb  from him; he looked dimly at the  wavering pools of light and shadow on. the waj.1, an& then Jn  wonder at a bright glory Of  cloud floating across the far  azure glimpse that showed thru  the *Window opening. It was as  if a mirage had crossed his eyes  in their last gleam of life.  But something of that same  tenacity of will which had held  Dalton against the cliff brought  him back for a moment, and Maitland heard him say, as he drifted  out on that last trail, "Give Rose  a   hand,   Bud*���she   run  a  great  THIS week we shall discuss  briefly the correct method of  feeding rabbits and the proper  foods to maintain good health.  ��� Rabbits should always have  plenty of water before them at  all times. They enjoy drinking  water and we have seen them  leave their food for a drink of  water.  In order to remain in good  health rabbits require to be constantly eating. This means careful attention to the hayrack  which should always be filled.  This supplies the necessary bulk  which "y concentrated foods do  not supply. Clover hay is high  in food value, but too much  may be fattening. Meadow hay,  alfalfa, and clover hay fed alternately gives a more balanced  variety for bulk and food.  FOODS  There are many commercial  foods on the markets, and we  fin$; rabbit ration (whole mixed  grains) pellets, and rabbit flak-,  ed mash (dry) keeps the little  fellows busy and interested at  - all times. Give only what they  will clean up in twenty minutes at each feeding. A small  piece of carrot is always enjoyed and beneficial re-nitrogen-free extract, and a splendid  conditioner.  GREENS  One must be very careful  when feeding greens, and always feed greens in very small  quantities at first, gradually increasing the amount, keeping  a watchful eye on the results.  Kale has the highest rating in  green foods for nutritive values.  However, rabbits enjoy a variety in greens as well as other  foods. One can easily determine  which food they prefer, as they  relish some and just nibble  others.  Salal, huckleberry, tree prun-  ings and: wiUow ;keep them busy  and happy.  SATISFACTION  One feels amply repaid for  careful attention when they see  their stock thriving and contented. Over-feeding is wasteful and may cause sickness and  eventually death,  due to fatty  bluff for ye. Tell her���I wa��  plumb wrong���about women. Tell  her���how much���I liked the singing."  THE END  deposits in the tissues.  Space does not permit a more  detailed feeding schedule but we  shall be glad to send a complete  list to anyone desriing fuller information on this subject.

SCENERY AND INDUSTRY      Pictures Prove  Popular With  #���  By  E.  C.  HAVING been invited to express the views of the average citizen on this subject, I  try to give a word picture of  the region contigous to the head  of Howe Sound and the little  town of Squamish.  Little? Yes, at present, but  there is a great future in store  for it. What has it got? At  least two great assets, scenery  and location. As it is approached by water, one cannot help  but marvel at the great beauty  of the rugged mountains that  flank the sound. And as you  near the Squamish wharf, that  may'estic prak, Mt. Garibaldi,  stands out m massive grandeur.  A little to t''^ east, is that wond-  erous M?n <:u?m glacier in all  its- eyrf-'-rresting beauty, all  truly rrsut'ful, and unsurpassed by the Alps or other mountain areas as many who have  toured them wil vouch.  TOURISTS  They are an asset because  there are many thousands who  would be delighted to visit  these areas when the much-  needed and essential highways  are built to take care of the  post-war tourist business, one  of B.C.'s great industries, one  that will endure long after the  merchantable timber is gone.  As the natural gateway to Mt.  Garibaldi Park, and the skiing  areas therein, Squamish will  prosper and grow and become  widely known as the town from  which you may reach the  world's finest skiing in thirty  minutes.   . - ���.  LOCATION IS ASSET  Location an asset?   Yes.  Situated at the head of Howe  Sound, it lends itself readily to  harbor development, with a  river that could be so easily  dredged to accommodate deep-  sea shipping and take care of  the heavy freight that will  eventually be carried south on  the Pacific Great Eastern railway, the tide-water terminus of  which is Squamish.  There are large areas suitable  for industrial development, elevators, : coal bunkers and so  forth.  TIMBER  The billions of feet of good  timber which has not yet been  logged off assures Squamish of  many more years of healthy  business, and there seems to be  no good reason why more of  these logs will not be manufactured here iistead of towed  away for sawing.  So we have scenery and in-  dustrv linked very closely together in Squamish. We need  the highway from Horseshoe  bay to Garibaldi, Mr. Anscomb.  ____���____���___________������������������������___���_  SECHELT  Alice A.

IN view of the unprecedented world need for foods of every kind, the  following information about British Columbia's egg- production will  be of interest.  Over six million dozen eggs moved in 1945 from,British Columbia  to Great Britain.  Special interest centered upon the record shipment of 90,000 cases  arriving there by refrigerator ship last December, and loaded in British  Columbia, climaxing with outstanding success a movement initiated in  March, 1944.  WHAT OF THE FUTURE?  Poultry officials expect that due to the firm export contracts for  1946 and 1947, there will be outlets for all eggs produced.  Prices for 1946 production have been set at 39c for top grade fresh  eggs at seaboard. 1947 prices' have not been set and will be governed by  competition from other countries.  In view of this general situation, consideration might well be directed  by present producers to the maintenance of present flocks, careful management and continued high quality of the product.  Prospective flock owners are strongly urged to discuss the situation  with departmental production officials before embarking upon any pro-  "'������������ i  gramme in order that they may have a complete picture of present  conditions and likely future trends.

Critic Forecasts  Bright Future    7  For Bill Thompson  A BRIGHT musical future was  forecast for Bill Thompson of  Stillwater, by CBR's critic, Arthur Benjamin when he heard  the youth's auditioii at the piano  recently. Bill had four hours',  tuition from H. M. Maihew_, Of  Cranberry Lake,: when he was  auditioned.r Mr. Benjamin's encouragement was: strong enough  to start /him 931 a four-year  course of! study. His parents are  Mr. and Mrs. William Thompson  of Stillwater.  _ By Adelaide  _  ONE   mother   writes   that   her  child has temper tantrums and  that she is unable to cope, with  them.  A tantrum is an attempt  on the child's part to gain its  own    way    and    consequently  should be ignored.  At the first  sign   of   the   child   starting   to  cry he should be put in a room  by himself and left completely  alone���with   no   audience ^nd  nothing to be gained by further  violent crying h_ will soon stop.  . Over tiredness and over stimulation are often the basis of a  tantrum and frequently there is  a physical defect as the seat of  trouble���if you suspect the lat- y  ter consult your doctor immediately.   Tantrums can be over- ,;  come  by wise  handling but if 'i  this   wise   handling   is   started   ;  in babyhood they will not de-   )  velope in the first place. /,  TREATMENT 1  Unfair treatment is another _ij  cause of tantrums���be sure your |  discipline is consistent���don't Jj  punish for something one day h  that you overlook the next be- J  cause you are busy or talking to |  a neighbor.

Shot From Rifle  Dispatches Huge  Cougar at Sechelt  A LUCKY shot from a .22 rifle  last week saved two Sechelt  Peninsula men from possible serious injury when they suddenly  encountered a cougar while  walking along a narrow trail.  The men were the Earl brothers,  re si dents of Agammemnon  Channel, which lies midway between Pender Harbour and Egmont. ,'���-���  They were heading for their  cabin on the higher levels when  their small dog, which had gone  on ahead of them, started yelping and running back down the  trail. At first the brothers  thought it was chasing a rabbit  but a moment later they saw a  large cougar come bounding  afer the dog.  So intent was the cougar on  its work that it failed to spot  the men on the trail.  Not able to get out of the marauder's way, the eldest brother  swung his .22 rifle round and  fired from the hip.  The shot struck the cougar between the eyes and it dropped  at their feet.  Measuring seven feet long, the  animal is one pf the largest eyer  seen in the Sechelt district.  The head has been sent to  Vancouver in order that the  bounty may be collected.  KLEINDALE  Mrs. C. Harper, Correspondent  Cook, Volen  & Co. Ltd.

Locker Room Chatter  By  Jim  Drummond  One for the books���Gibson's  Badminton clubs were guests of  the Robert's Creek club on  March 6 and the tournament  results  were  rather scrambled.  Roberts Creek wonby games,  13-12, but Gibson's won by  points 308-302, - v  But to Gibson's disappointment, it had been pre-arranged  that the winner would be decided by games.  A lucious lunch was served at  eleven, then Gibson's headed  for home in C. Taurence's spacious bus.

But in the second  quarter j Gibson's came through  to a 25-17 lead and thereafter  were not touched. The final  score was 48-35.  Again Drummond came  through to be marksman of the  night with a hot 18* points, followed by Bud Fisher of Gibson's with ��� 12 of the best. High  man for Woodfibre was Woods  with 11 points.

Board of Trade  (Continued From Page 1)  tical by some engineers and  when the public works Department followed the suggestion  nevertheless, had it failed, the  Board of Trade would have had  to share the responsibility of  failure.  Committee reported that the  Newport Hotel has just changed  hands; though the new owner  was not yet announced.  FIRE ALARMS  Fire Department Committee  reported that some A.R.P. equipment has been earmarked for  Squamish territory, and that  three alarms had bean suggested  to cost in the neighborhood of  $200.  It was pointed out that the  equipment that is to be sent is  not yet authorized- for shipment.  Fire department also reported  present Transporting equipment  in bad shape, that a new chassis for a hose trailer had been  selected but tires would have  to be bought.  It was also shown that the  present hall and lean-to were  too small, but extensions of facilities were being planned at'  practically no cost other than  material.  FIREMEN'S CLUB  Mr. Aldridge, speaking on behalf of the volunteer firemen^  had considerable difficulty get- j  ting clearance from the board  for a firemen's club. Some  board members took the inter-  pretation that the club would <  be trying to take over fire-fighting equipment. ,  Other members feared the  proposed campaign for funds to  supply comforts and equipment  to the firemen would confuse  the public when the board wish-  , ed to raise funds for fire-fighting equipment. '--%.  Finally cleared up that Firemen's Club vwould be entirely  separate from the ^ lire cl^afti  ment, j club being simply; a  means of the firemen sticking  together and procueing a few-  luxuries for themselves following a call at inconvenient hours.  INVESTIGATION  COMMITTEE  Mr. Ed Carson reported on behalf of village investigation  committee. '       \  The motion put that the report be laid on table for future  meeting, but Mr. Carson pointed  that, that is what happened before to attempts to get organized. "Reports were tabled, or  shelved, and never seen again."  "Too much work has been  done on this already and too  much has yet to be done to  have this effort shelved indefinitely."   .  Mr. Carson told the meeting  that the committee had in its  possession a book giving the pros  and cons, and statements and  figures of every incorporated  area in British Columbia," many  of which are not as large as  Squamish, nor as densely populated, nor with the taxation  resources, that Squamish is already using."  Hospital committee reported  that a general meeting would  be held that week and fuller  report given then.  The welcome home committee  reported discouraging reception  to its efforts and meetings.  BRACKENDALE REPORT  A report from Brackendale  stated that the roads were imr  proved but still "pretty darn  rough". Upon request, another  letter was sent asking for gravelling, "eight inches of it in the  hope that we might get four."  A request was incorporated  in the letter asking for hard  surfacing. .  A late report stated tha the  W.I. were soliciting on behalf  of the Punch family, and the  board granted a $10 donation.
