 ever Did Like  PROVINCIAL LI2RARY  VICTORIA  e Big 5aw  ��� BY W. ROBERTS, Hardy Island  LONG  before  our woods  were  .   full of 'cats' and 'dozers' and  held only a few horses and oxen  we   who   built   the  first   roads  were no more fond of cutting  through the big trees which lay  on the right.than you are today.  But  we  had  no  chain  saw  or  i dragsaws, nothing but seven or  i eight   foot   crosscuts   with   few  J men able to put them in good  ^cutting order.  To get around a big windfall  which lay in the way we miyht  say to the Big Boss "Would it  matter to go around this one?"  and he might say "It wouldn't  hurt now, would it?" And there  you have the reason why the old  roads seem so long and crooked.  We   didn't   always  get   away  .with  it that easy,  so then we  rtook augurs in place of the saw.  'One of us would get atop wijth  (the two-inch augur and sink a  [hole into the very heart.   An-  fother with the one-inch would  the side.   Then with dry cedar  jslivers and bits of dry bark a  flittle fire was started and this  'could soon be left to its work.  [Sometimes 20 to 40 of such fires  jwould be left on the job and of-  |ten the whole tree from root to  B,top would burn away. More of-  lten we would find the .big hole  ^vith a thin shell of bark and  sapwood to be cut away.  ;   I have seenx a big fir stump  some eight feet high and almost  [the  same  through .removed  in  jthis way.  Two or three sets of  Wholes would be set going in the  |Dutt   of   the   stump.    It   would  jburh off and the top drop into  fhe burnt but hole, keeping the  pre going until even the rootte  Serving   a  Progressive   &   Growing  Area  on B.

Phillips Home  Isr Destroyed  By Fire  PENDER HARBOR-- A chimney fire, took the home of Mr.  and Mrs. Jimmie Phillips and  family May 7. Mrs. Phillips and  her seven children escaped unhurt except for minor burns suffered, for which she was taken  to St. Mary's Hospital for treatment. Her husband was not at  home at the time of the fire.  Much thanks go to Wilf Scott,  of Scott's Transfer, who was the  first to discover the fire. By  quick thinking and fast work he  managed to help save a lot of  the furnishings.  Ollie Dubois, next door neighbor, saw the smoke and rushed  to the scene but was too late to  do much, although he and Mr.  Charles Sundquist kept the fire  from spreading to the nearby  bridge and car.  KLEINDALE  Mrs.  C. Harper,  Correspondent  A surprise party was held for  the birthdays of Peggy West and  Helen Sundquist.  A Jiuge bonfire with plenty of  weiners to roast and Mrs. Sund-  quist's famous home made buns,  plenty of coffee and sweets for  the children was enjoyed by all.  -^*Fo*lfe_6W' people^'attended;  Peter Kline brought his guitar  and all the young folks joined  in the sing song.  When the party broke up at  midnight everyone wa_ reluctant to leave the happy evening  behind.  ��� ���    *  Ronald Heid, youngest son of  Mr. and Mrs. Charles Heid, is  in the hospital here recovering  from an appendix operation.  * '*.   *  Planting time is here for the  valley and one can hear the  buzz of the tractor and plow and  see Mr. Farmer with his spade  and rake. Are they ever enjoying this lovely weather!  IDisney's 'South of the Border1  lOn Month's Film Board Picture List  &  This   months'   circuit   of   the  National Film Board will feature Walt Disney's fine film in  I color, South of the Border. Mr.  fpisney's film deals with his trio  to the South Americas in search  of new ideas for his film cartoon  actory in Hollywood���the film  shows his staff of artists in ac-  ion in  the  different  countries  Ithey visited in search of background and new cartoon characters.  The film is a fine feature and it was from this trip  and this film that the characters  in the Disney production  "Saludas Amigos" was made and  created.  Learn to Swim is the second  feature  of the  program.   This  I film shows the fundamentals of  the art of swimming* for beginners, and finishes up with some  rfine action shots of experts in  faction. This is a "must" at this  time of year and will assist a  great deal in giving a backing  and  training  to  all  interested  |/people.    The   film   shows  how  | easy it is to swim.  Toronto Symphony is a musical short on the program with  the well known Canadian conductor. Sir Ernest MacMillan.  This is another of NFB's fine  film productions and a treat for  the music lover. The program  is well rounded out with other  fine features.  Mr. Milt Roberts will handle  the circuit this month in place  of Harold Box, who leaves on an  extended summer circuit for  the months of June and July  which will take him from Vancouver, through the Cariboo  section of the province, then over to Prince Rupert and return.  This month's circuit dates are'  as follows:  Gibsons, May 2,7.  Roberts Creek, May 28  Sechelt, May 29.  Halfmoon Bay, May 30.  Pender Harbour, June 1.  NFB shows are free of admission charges and the residents of  the communities served are cordially invited to see the fine  film presentations.    ,  Starter  BOAT SAVED  Velma Cresswell and her dad,  George Cresswell, started the  fishing season at Grantham's  Landing with this nice catch���  a bass.,  This will be a pleasant memory for the Cresswells to take  with them.

Alan Greene, superintendent of the Columbia Coast Mission, concerning their new ship,  the John Ant}e.  "Th�� JW0T :^^Ze recently fcook  the doctor from St. Mary's Hospital to tend Mr. Franklin, the  retired lighthouse keeper on  Mary Island. This island is almost opposite Halfmoon Bay.  Another article, Retrospect",  gives a good picture of the extent and growth of the Coast  Mission, and will be published  next week.  As one resident said "I hate  to admit it but I have neglected  my religious training very badly. I feel that I'm making up  for a few things though when I  help men like the two brothers  with the Coast Mission, Rev. Alan and. Rev. Heber Greene. _.\e  known them a long time. They  are real men, in other word's,  men's men! They practice more  than they preach���and they do .  preach a great deal. Their big  aim in life is to serve and comfort others."  Ouch! What Next!  As if the delays of the past  few weeks were not enough,  we now have the gremlins on  our tail. Last week's Coast  News was delayed four days by  being . left off the steamer at  Westview two trips running. A  harried note from Editor Eriyte  Pearson to the printing office  ���which was feeling rather  proud of itself by being on time  after all these weeks���saying  that The News was missing sent  us out on the hunt for the missing bundles, which were found,  safe but late, in a corner of the  freight sheds1.  We only ask you to have a  heart on Mr. Pearson. Ernie is  doing his part a hundred percent and we have been held up  in the printing end. We feel  we are out of the woods now,  and we hate to see Ernie getting  a lot of blame that really isn't  coming to him. < .  BY IMER BEAMISH  A fire which very nearly ended in tragedy occurred at the  Fisherman's   Co-operative   float  at Egmont May 8.   One of our  good citizen fishermen, Mr. Geo.  Day, in company with Mr. Wm.  Blakely,   had   come, in  with   a  tow of lumber from the Gilmour  Sawmill.  They had just tied up  their boats and their lumber and  Mr. Day had started to prepare  his dinner. While his kettle was  heating on the oil stove he decided to put some gas in his tank  in preparation for a run after  dinner.   He secured the gas in  a  five-gallon measure and before putting it in the tank which  was inside the cabin he shut off  the   oil   stove,   then   started   to  pour  the   gas.   Suddenly  there  came a flash and he was enveloped in fire.  He tried to throw  the flaming measure out of the  open door but it struck one side  and fell back at his feet, drenching him  with  gasoline.   Immediately   the   only   exit   from  the cabin was a mass of flames  which poured out the door and  the pilot house    windows    and  shot many feet above.  To those outside it looked like  ��s��ark r ^  doorway was realized f6 be hope  less and swift action was started  to smash in the front of the  cabin on the chance that a rescue might still be effected that  way.  In the meantime the trapped  man, with great presence of  mind snatched a woollen blanket from his bed, wrapped himself in it and came out through  the flaming doorway, his clothing on fire from head to foot.  Many hands tried vainly to  quench the fire on his clothing  and realizing their inability to  do this they dropped him overside into the sea. At this point  the  gang  divided,  one  part to  Film Board Has  High Praise For  Coast News  B. C. and Alberta Regional  Supervisor Len Chatwin of ^ie  National Film Board left for Ottawa to attend a conference of  production and distribution departments of the National Film  Board on May 14. Mr. Chatwin  takes with him the reactions as  received by Harold Box, field  representative who has been on  the peninsula circuit during J^ie  past few months. These reactions and desires will be given to  the conference in order to guide  and assist the department in  producing films that the people  want.  PRAISE COAST NEWS  Mr. Chatwin has been very  much impressed by the results  obtained since this circuit opened and the fine co-operation  extended by the Coast News in  publicizing the circuit, and with  his other information he is taking to Ottawa copies of The  Coast News to show the excellent publicity given and how it  has increased support of the circuit in this area.  care for the injured man and  the other to attack the burning  boat. Willing hands and enough  buckets and sea water soon had  the fire all smothered down to  only the burning gasoline measure, and the timely arrival of a  man with a fire extinguisher  snuffed even that out, and the  fight was over. The whole action was very fast and it appears nobody lost his head as  sometimes happens. Due to  these factors a man, though badly burned, has a good chance of  life and further usefulness and  he has a boat to go on with  when he is able to do so  The injured man was given  first aid by William Blakely and  put aboard Mr. Victor Cramp's  boat and taken to St. Mary's  hospital at Pender Harbour At  last report he was doing well.  Mr. Day was a good fisherman, a good citizen and a good  neighbour and we wisn him a  speedy recovery.  Gargrave Speaks  ^LegioiiBall  GIBSONS   LANDING���Herbert  Gargrave, MLA,  addressed  a  well-atended meeting at the Legion Hall here on May 20.   He  reported on proceedings of the  . recent session of the Legislature  with particular attention to the  more   important   of   the   many  bills  passed.   He  believed that  implementation of the Cameron  report  on  education  was  very  important,  and with potentialities  of  great   benefit.    It  was  likely  that  amendments  would  be found desirable after trial of  the new policy; he hoped that  the attitude of the public would  be to make the new policy one  of better and more complete educational  service,  especially, in  rural  districts,  rather than focussing   on   money-saving.    He  believed children in rural areas  could  and  should  have  opportunities more nearly on a par  with the large centers than has  been the case in the past.  Mr. Gargrave was not too optimistic about the future of the  road program in this district.  He thought we might look for  a better deal than in the past,  but said that the Department  still fails to face up to the fact;  that roads here are in a deplorable condition and that patchwork repairs are useless. The  need, he claimed, was for heavy  capital expenditure on machinery, and a program of using  modern equipment to build a  modern network of roads for  the traffic of today and tomorrow.  The local hardy perennial, Mr.  Gargrave concluded, was the  Port Mellon road, and was still  only on paper, though he felt  it was perhaps nearer completion than it was in 1913. He had  obtained a promise from the  minister of public works that  he would visit this district in  the near future and examine the  matter personally. Page Two  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay/ B.

Coast N&tvs Ltd.  By Jane Drury  FOR   SOME   reason   or   other,  Sunday   seemed   to   be   very  popular for fishing around here.  It    was    quite  early     in    the  morning   when  our friend Bill  Deans    headed  towards _   the  lake so fast that  his    nose    almost     scraped  the sidewalk as  he was passing  our place. Shortly after he was  on his way, a good many went  by;    mothers,    fathers,    bobby  sockers and the diaper brigade,  all   headed   for   Powell   Lake.  Some had the fanciest of lines,  all   decorated   up   like   Astor's  Plush Horse,  only with spoons  that shined like a mirror. Later  in  the  morning  a  lovely bo^t  (tug-boat size)   passed  on one  of the logging trucks.  She too  was  on  her  way to  the  lake.  Launched   a   few   days   ago   at  Lund, she was towed to Powell  River and then started her land  trip. Was she ever a beauty and  oh! what lines; made of cedar  and mahogany, I was told.  FISH FROM HEAVEN  All,this started me dreaming  of some  of the fishing trips I  had been on while camping up  West    Howe    Sound,    and    of  the fish consumed���yes, without  even   going   after   them.   This  happened  a  good  many  years  ago  but  it  happened  just  the  same.   Our   camp   kitchen  was  mostly   out   in  the   open���roof  over it  and cedar shake sides  half way up-���ho-.-.door's at all.  Cooking  out  in  the  fresh   air  like  that was  always  a pleasure.   We  used  to   take  turns  getting breakfast which usually  consisted  of  mush,  bacon  and  eggs, toast, jam and coffee. A  very hearty" breakfast for city  folk who were just loafing the  summer   away.   However,   this  morning it happened to be my  turn to gat breakfast and when  I went into the kitchen I saw  about eight oolichans lying beside  the   stove  waiting  to   be  cleaned and cooked for breakfast. Hmm! wherever did they  come   from���ftbey   were   fresh  because   they   were   firm,   and  as the kitchen  was about  150  feet from the pater's edge they  certainly didn't jump that far.  I looked around to see  where  puss and her young family were,  but they were not in sight and  no  evidences  was visible  that  they had had a feed either. Oh,  well, I cleaned the fish and we  had them for breakfast.  DELIVERED BY CAT  The next morning the  same  thing happened only there were  not quite as many fish. We were  still puzzled and still alive from  our feed of fish the day pre-^  vious so these too got cooked  for   breakfast.   Its   good   going  when the fish come to you instead  of  you   going  after   the  fish.     The    third    morning  in   succession   the   same   thing  happened but at the same time  we  found put  who  had  donated the fish to us. Puss was  very busy and so were her two  kittens, eating a fish each when  we arrived on the scene. Apparently the oolichans had come  intoo far on the high tide and  the  sand  from  the gravel  pit  got  into   their   gills   and  they  were left stranded. It was nothing unusual to see a school of  these fish at that time of the  year. During the night or early  morning puss who was always  on the hunt for something for  her offspring, must have brought  the fish up and laid them on  the kitchen floor and after the  kittens had had their fill and  puss too, they had gone off and  had a snooze leaving behind'  the ones they hadn't touched.  This only occurred three days  in succession  FLYING ANTS  On Bill's way home from the  lake  last  evening  he   saw  me  at the window and help up  a  - parcel���"here   ye   are   Lassie"  and   he   gave   me   two   lovely  trout.   I started  to clean them  at once and I got the surprise  of my life when I opened them.  Inside one was a live flying ant  and the inner tubes of this one.  was full of flying ants. It must  had consumed a couple of hundred.  I   opened the  other  and  sure  enough  it  was  full   also.  I don't know much about flying  ants, but I think they all come  out  of  the  earth  on  a  certain  day each year, fly around and  drop their wings before nightfall. I have seen them on the  salt  water a  good many times  so I take it that wherever Bill  caught these trout the ants must  have been in abundance. I called .  the men folk in  the house  to  have a "look see" before I disposed of them. The trout tasted  grand  and  we  thoroughly  enjoyed them.  On these lovely warm days my  thoughts are csfcill wandering  most of the time up West ItJowe  .Sotind.as, I recall so many happy  incidents. It is on days like  these that I think of the following:  The * summer's here and each  year comes a yearning  To shun the dusty streets and  sweltering heat  And camp where we can have  our fires burning  And hear the wild waves dashing at our feet.  Welcome Oh! boon of life, bosom of nature,  Thy joys intoxicate, thy lures  beguile,  Encamped beneath the clear  blue skies of summer,  Let's feel the joy of living for  awhile.

Still is liquor a moot question  and that makes me feel quite  sad, for it lowers my respect  for the intelligence of the average college grad. Our statesmen and legislators, most of  them, have attended university,  so they are well-insured against  the haunting spectre of ad\^s-  ity; but of what practical value  is their blooming eduction when  it cannot solve the liquor question which has, for so many  years, plagued the nation?  Now, liquor is a liquid which  affects different people in divers  ways. To some it gives a definite "lift" but others it puts in  a stupid daze. Some are enoblecl  by the mellowing influence of  strong drink; but many get so  "polluted" that they���well, just  let   the   matter   sink.   On   the  merits of liquor, no two people  seem able to agree; and that's  the season it's been a problem  to   our   ancestors���and   to   you  and   me.    Nazis    and   Fascists  struggled fiercely to convert the  entire   world.   The   Red   Flag,  Communists wish to see,  over  every capital unfurled. And so  it is with liquor on both sides���  pro and con. Every man would  force his neighbor to  sing his  favorite song. The "drys" would  compel the "wets" to dispense  with the Demon Rum but the  "wets"   contend,   'tis   no   more  harmful than so much chewing  gum.  Since the "wets" like their  liquor because it makes them  happy or sad and the "drys"  have never tasted it, for which  they give thanks and are glad;  why not try arbitration, which  /*  SECftET COVE  Inez  Willison,   Correspondent  Mr. Eric Willison has left for  Vancouver after a few days at  home.

If for some people liquor  is  bad,  yet for others it may  be , good,   just   as   one   mail's  poison may turn out to be another's   food.   sQn   Ithe   profits  from   liquor,   government   will  never relinquish its  grasp  but  could not a percentage be surrendered  to  education's   clasp?  In school, in church, in home,  could not the government advertise   the   benefits   of   tem-  perstfe,   be   healthy, *be   wise?

A MOTHER of 20 children���11 of whom still  sit .at the home table���has just made the  headlines with the remark that in her house  "nobody gets seconds." Whether this has some-  twice.  Here may be just the right menu for some  folk. We all want to help those for whom part  of the worst of the war goes on, even though  the shooting, has stopped.

But the mother's words are suggestive of  one way we can all help feed our hungry  brothers and sisters in other lands. Nobody  gets seconds! It that top stoical a slogan for  the Canadian home? If so, there is a way to  soften it without damage to frugality or  charity.  Sir James Barrie tells how a Scottish family  made a little seem like more every Saturday  , night when the children's spending money  was passed around.

Verily I say  unt you, Whosoever shall not receive the  Kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not  enter therein. And He took them up in His  arms, put His hands upon them, and blessed  them.���MARK, 10: 13-16.  Now is the time for all women willing to  reduce to come to the aid of a starving world.  Trucking .Logs  ���Cut Courtesy Columbia Coast Mission.  Seattle Press  Fears "Worst"  In IWA Strike  THE SEATTLE Times, itself dependent on Powell River paper mills, Thursday forecast a  serious newsprint shortage  should the province's loggers'  strike continue long.  It    quoted    Frank    Webster,  Seattle Star business manager,  as saying "If the strike goes on  long enough, we'll  all be out'  of business.  "All newspapers using British Columbia newsprint probably will have to reduce in  size."  George Russell^ Tacoma News-  Tribune business manager, said  "If the strike continues more  than a week, we are going to"  have to do something drastic  in cutting the size of our paper  ���as much as 50 percent to  start."  Also reported dependent on  B. C. mills, which shut down  when their three weeks' supply  of logse is exhausted, are:  The Bremerton Sun, Belling-  ham Herald, Tacoma Times,  Seattle Buyers Guide, all in  Washington State; 90 per cent  of California's smaller papers  plus the San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco News, Los  Angeles News, Oakland Tribune,  Sacramento Bee, Modesto Bee,  Fresno Bee; newspapers in  Houston Texas, and the Star-  Bulletin and the Advertiser in  Honolulu.  The Bremerton Sun announced in today's issue that it  would start a "drastic" program  of rationing advertising space  tomorrow, to permit reducing  the size of the paper.  THE GOVERNMENT bounty on cougars at the  present time is only $15 and that is not  enough to. encourage hunting them. Cougars  take time, energy, patience and skill and $15  will not attract regular pest exterminators.  A decent bounty will attract experts and the  predators can be controlled. But this is the  only method.  Observers who know tne methods which  cougars employ to secure their food, state that  cougars kill on an average 30 deer each per  year, which at the bounty rate, makes a deer  worth 50 cents.  Match this 50 cents wih a fee to non-residents  or royalty, of $15 and a fine of $25, for shooting  a deer out of season. These are the government's regulations.  Placing the value of a deer at the modest  figure of $5.00, a cougar normally destroys living property to the value of $150 a year.  If to  this is added the revenue which would come  from hunting fees, resident and non-resident  . and the other .revenue from hunters, Canadian  and American, if deer were plentiful, the loss  actually is far more than the $150 per cougar.  At the present time, the cougars are increas-^  ing in British Columbia's hunting and range1  areas  and the*  hunters,  as previously  noted, \  will not  go  out  after them for the  present-  bounty,   from   which   they   cannot   meet   expenses.  Many B.C. hunters claim that they would  be inside the mark if they estimated the average, deer killing by a cougar at one a week o_vj  52 a year. One of them reports that he was]  traiing a big cougar and found that it had!  killed six deer in five days. He got the cougar j  on the sixth day. |  Regarding the"claim that  cougar kill only'*  sick deert cougar hunters state it has no foundation in fact, on the contrary they assert that:  a cougar will kill the biggest buck.  In respect of the game commission's claim]  that the deer will get too thick if the cougars  are killed off, huners ask that if his is true,  which they doubt, why not let them have a-  chance to kill the deer so that these animals  will not "become too thick". That is, why not  keep the cougar down /and let the people^  have a shot at the deer and let them have the  meat instead of a predatory animal.  To control cougar, put a $40 bounty, whicri  works out at a valuation of $1.34 a deer.  As for putting on predatory animal hunters!  at a fixed v/age scale, this would cost far morel  than $40 a cougar. But the $40 bounty would]  assure a constant supply of eager cougar nun-;  ters in.every section where these animals exist 1  There would be scores of these hunters againstj  a couple of salaried government cougar hunters!]  u  Poet^s Corner  Birds  By Marvin Kirkwood  Soaring o'er land and sea,  Bringing to others, joy and glee;  But why are you so shy,  Beautiful winged creatures of the sky.

She  is powered with a 110 Chrysler  Crown Marine gas engine  and  will probobly develop 70 hp. in  the 2-1 reduction gear and 22x  18 propeller.  Layout of the ship is interesting. Forward in the nose of the  ship are two berths, lockers, and  just off this cabin a small wash  room and toilet. This section of  the ship is a complete compartment in itself.  PILOT HOUSE  The pilot house is of the observation cabin type, running  clear across the ship's beam,  with narrow decks outside. It is  a streamlined ship forward and  aft and has large plate glass  windows all round. A fine light  and an electric air whistle has  been installed. The steering  wheel and engine controls are  set slightly to port of center and  are easily controllable by the  man at the wheel.  Underneath* the floor of the  pilot house is the engine. On the  port side of the engine compartment is a 140 ampere hour 32-  yolt storage battery. A one-inch  emergency bilge pump, belt  driven from the main engine,  insures fast pumping in case the  ship sprung a serious leak and  required to be pumped while  the ship was still under way.  In the pilot house is a settee  and room for easy chairs, and  this cabin is large enough to  serve as a small chapel accomodating ten people. The ship  will carry an ample supply of  folding chairs for such gatherings and the chart table provides  a place for the ship's altar.  CABIN  In the cabin aft, the layout is  a bit unusual.   Along the port  side stand the oil-burning, fan-  driven range, the sink, and the  lockers for kitchen gear/ On the  starboard side forward is a dinette,  slightly raised  above the  main floor of this vabin,  with  very   comfortable   upholstering*  which when the dining table is  lowered, can be converted into  a double berth exactly as a pull-  man berth is arranged.   Aft of  the dinette is a small office and  radio telephone room.   The radio has loudspeakers both in this'  cabin and the pilothouse and it  will be possible to set the radia  telephone at the receiving position and hear any calls that  may come in while one is at the  wheel.  Then, if a message must  be transmitted, it will be necessary to go back to the transmitter and operate from there.  GENERATING PLANT  Outside in the spacious cockpit is a 32 volt 6000 watt electric  generating plant which charges  the main batteries. It is an air-  cooled unit. Across the aftev  side of the cockpit is a large insulate ice box which serves as a  seat.  The ship's dinghy is carried  on the upper deck. But I finct  that nearly always I tow the>  dinghy as I make a great many  rowboat landings after anchoring.  The ship's hull has a two-foot  strip of gumwood sheathing along the entire water line, and is  of tremendous value in avoiding  the inevitable chafing of the  ship's planking" when tied up  alongside log booms or when occasionally forced to break thru  ice at the heads of the'Inlets.  She is a well-appointed ship,  and it remains to be seen how  good she is in heavy weather.  Her full speed in her trial run  over the measured mile off of  Point Grey was 10 knots. This  may be improved with slight  propellor adjustment if it seerqp  advisable.  The ship was built in 1939 by  the Vancouver shipyards to the  design of Gilbert Jukes, and the  engine was purchased from the  Canadian Atlas Diesel. The radio was installed by Spilsbury  and Hepburn of Vancouver and  the repairs were effected under  the direction of the Vancouver  shipyards after she was taken  over from the RCAF, to whom  she had been on charter by the  owner, Arthur Head of Cobble  Hill, Vancouver Island. He has  owned her since 1939 but from  that year until 1942 did not have  her in commission owing to the  war restrictions. While in his  hands she was known as the^  Panda and during her charter  to the RCAF, as the Goose. She  She now reverts to the name of  the two previous ships, John  Antle, and is a happy way in  which to perpetuate the name  of the founder of the Columbia  Coast  Mission.  BASE AT PENDER  HA9BOUR  The John Antle will make  Pender Harbour her base, and I  will concentrate on that general  area, including Lasqueti, Texada, Hardy, Nelson, Thormai^py  Islands, as well as all* of Jervis  Inlet. From time to time it will  be necessary to make a run all  throug hthe Mission territory to  keep an eye on our work as a  --whole.'   * "'"���������  THANKS  EXTENDED  To those who contributed and  made the purchase and equipment of this fine vessel possible  we extend our profound thanks,  and we do hope that the new  John Antle will prove a useful  ship to all those to whom she  and her skipper will minister.  I hope to -have a lay helper w.^��_w  me as my crew to ease the constant strain of running the ship  alone. He will serve as cook and  first mate, so to speak, while I  will be skipper.

Sunray,  Hardy Island  Editor, Coast News:  Sir���Mr. Roberts has returned  recently from a trip to Roberts  Creek where he saw so much  building and was asked so many  questions that it brought to the  fore again a thought that we  have had for some time���that  one or two articles on other days  and other ways which might  still be useful, would be very  much in the interest of your  readers.  I am sending some of his own  thoughts on the matter.  The Coast News couid become  a very great help to the new  settlers who are coming out along this shore line. I well remember that rush which came  after World War I and after  watching many of those try to  make a home out here. I feel  that through your paper a good  deal of help might be given.  And is that not what a paper  such as you is for?  If so, then try to find space  where one might ask another  the 'how' and 'why' of things.  Or you could have some of us  older ones ready to answer such  letters of enquiry which may  seek the answer to problerhs  we older residents have overcome in one way or naother.  I am thinking of one who  asked how in heck he was to get  rid of a fir stump right where  he-wanted his house to be. I enclose my answer, somewhat enlarged upon.  We get much enjoyment from  The News and are glad to see  it growing up.  EDITH M. PETTIGREW  ��� Thanks for your kind words  and your useful suggestion,  Mrs. Pettigrew. In today's paper is .the first of the articles;  the other two will follow in the -  nex;t two issues.  Our readers are urged to take  advantage of the offer of help  ���the older heads are wiser in  experience and could save us a  lot of hard bumps if we would  listen once in a while.

Fortunately, however,  there was no strong wind blowing and the more' proved to be  unnecessary.  Work of the fire department,  which arrived on the scene only  a few minutes after the alarm  had been turned in, was hampered by lack of adequate pressure in the main until the water  was turned off at Fourth and  Joice. v  Volunteer assistance from  friends and neighbors was instrumental in saving a large  amount of finished lumber,  stored iri the shed, which was  burning briskly until extinguished by the fireman.  The lumber was moved to a  place of safety by hand and in  a truck , loaded by the volunteers.  The blaze was finally brought  under control after a two-hour  fight by the brigade and another half an hour was spent in  extinguishing it.  PICKETS PULLED  FROM LOAD OF  "HOT". LUMBER  THE SERIOUS side of the present loggers' strike was pushed  into the ..background momentarily Saturday afternoon when  union men, picketing the Lake-  view Lumber company, followed a load of "hot" lumber all  the way from Powell Lake to  Lund.  On arriving at the up-coast  fishing centre, the pickets piled  out of their cars and prepared  to mount guard around the load  of lumber. At fthat momenjfc  however, Forest Ranger Charlie Yingling dashed up and called all the men to fight a fire  which had broken out in the  bush nearby. The driver of the  truck (a lady) unloaded her  lumber and made the return  journey���without escort.

High Grade  Sulphite Plant  Is Shut Down  RESULT of the logger's strike,  the high grade sulphite plant  of  the  Powell  River  company  was closed down Thursday.  The move was made "to protect the claims of our newsprint customers and to maintain, as long as possible, pur  present contracts," stated B. R.  Cancell, vice president of the  company in announcing the  shut-down.  In a. prepared statement,  which reached our office too late  for last week's paper, the Pfw-  ell River company outlined the  issues of the strike as they affected Powell River. Following  is the text of the statement.  "The employees of the Powell  River company are organized  under the International Brotherhood of Papermakers and  the International Brotherhood  of Pulp, Sulphite and Paper Mill  Workers. There is no issue between the Powell River company and these unions.  The Powell River company  obtains its chief raw materials  -���logs���from the logging industry, the International Woodworkers of America (CLO a��r  filiate) negotiate as a group. It  is in connection with thefce  negotiations where the present  unfortunate misunderstanding  lies.  There are some 150 logging  and timber operators in the  above group, of which the Powell River company controls the  stock of three.  From this it will be understood: that the Powell River  company will continue to operate so long as raw materials  are  available  for  the purpose.  "This period of operations we  cannot predict at the present  time but the Powell River company will, in the intererests of  its employees, its newspaper  consumers, who are a public  service, and the general public,  make every ethical effort to operate as long as it possible can."  "SEVERAL smaller companies %  in the district have agreed to \  sign the 1946 agreements and  have been given permits to continue operations," stated W.  Marfcinuk> a Vancouver m!an \  who has been sent to Powell ���(!  River to lead the local strike jj  committee. if  "The committee has no wish Jj  to inconvenience veterans need- \\  ing lumber badly," he stated.  "Veterans or essential work projects may procure lumber_sup- \i  plies through the local branch ri  o fthe  Canadian Legion."
