An  account  of the  shops  in  which he has served reads like  a travelogue. Says Mr. Hermis-  'tan:   "This is> definitely the last  -top. I'll retire here."  Starting in Saskatchewan, he  irecords service in Banff Springs  Hotel in 1933, then Calgary, Edmonton, Trail, Vancouver, and  on the Island." The last two shops  before going on his own were  the Rogers Building Shop, on  <Grranvrlley Street, and the Service Shop on Dunsmuir Street.  UNION SHOP  Proud of His union shop, Mr.  Hermistan and his wife admitted to a query that they are  considering' a beauty parlor in  addition to the men's side, but  indicated they would not be in  that business for some time.  ^sk fpr Suggestions  Fear Missing  Fisherman May  Have Drowned  PENDER HARBOUR ��� Fears  that Ted Johnson, cod fisherman of New Westminster, met  his death by drowning last  weekend were expressed here  when his boat, "Elma" was  found deserted off the east end  of -Thprmanby Island early on  Sunday  morning.  Johnson was last seen Saturday, March 31 at 1:15 .p.m. between Thormanby and Texada  Islands. His friend, Angus  Johnson, no: relation, became  worried when he could not find  Ted's boat and notified the  fishery patrol.  ,. A patrol launch found the deserted boat Sunday morning.  Apparently the man lost his  balance and fell overboard. The  boat was towed to Vancouver  by Atlin Post.

Veterans' Land  Supervisor at  Gibsons Landing  A Bargain!  ���A PARAGRAPH appeared m  y the March 22 issue of the  NTews regarding a guard rail on  he stern of the "Commuter"  operated by the Howe Sound  transport.  In an interview with  ���Gordon Gallentine previous to  the publication of the above  mentioned issue, representatives  of the News found that he and  his partner, George Frith, more  than welcomed any . suggestion  ;hat would help to improve the  service. The matter of a guard  rail had been under consideration by them and other safety  features as well. These have  been ordered from the builders,  for delivery as soon as possible.  BOAT IS SAFE  It is a well known fact that  the boats owned by the Howe  Bound Transport have been designed for great strength, safe  and speedy travelling. Their  particular design permits them  to drive through rough seas in  safety and comfort where other  boats may fear to go.  CARELESS PASSENGERS  One of the continuous worries of the management are the  careless passengers who are  oyer anxious to get on or off  and leap before the boat has  properly docked or been tied  up. Many of the new safety  features are being introduced  beciause of such carelessness. It  has been found that the Howe  Sound Transport will introduce  anything , reasonable for the  added comfort of their passengers.  arid emergencyycommittee^ vice-  president of Local 297v_BPS &  BMW, all of which offices Mr.  Lowdell held for nearly five  years.  ��� A stag party was held by local executive officers at the  home of Mr. and Mrs. S.

Due to  the short notice given, attendance was small.  Ay silver collection was taken,  the proceeds being donated to  charity.  Are Sentenced  AtSecMi  AMONG the several cases tried  before the magistrate at Sechelt Thursday, March 28, were  two juvenile cases. The first  was a youth of 16 who was sentenced to a long sentence in  the boys' industrial school for  stealing a number of things  which included automobile tires  and batteries. Through the efforts of Constable Aylward of  the Provincial Police he was  identified through his finger  prints as the one who was connected with the breaking and  entering the Union Steamship  tea-room ad the Government  Telegraph service office in Sechelt. It is thought that these  charges will not be pressed  against him. The sentence is  likely to be four to six years.  The second youth charged in  court was the one connected  with the Peterson case at Gibson's- Landing. He is only 13  years  of age but was  charged  can not get true: land value for  their money, is-:to wait a, while,"  stated Mr. Wood, assistant supervisor of the soldier settlement board, located in Vancouver, Nwho was on a visit to Gibsons and Grantham's Landing  last week.  "Who knows what the conditions may be five years from,  now? Yet the benefits available  to ex-servicemen will be, the  same then as now���and their  money may be worth a whole  lot more," Mr. Wood continued.  BOARD'S PURPOSE  Summarizing, he pointed out  that the purpose of the board  was to establish or settle ex-  servicemen on the land when  they expressed a desire to go to  it. Thus the board was not allowed under present policies to  put men into homes on less than  a half-acre, and had found that  many who had taken that minimum were anxious now to get  adjoining property to increase  their acreage. The board preferred to see men on a tract of  several acres so that more agricultural land will be developed.  "But," he pointed out, 'we  must keep in mind that B. C.  was not intended as an agricultural province, therefore we do  not encourage wheat farms in  the" midst of Okanagan's orchards, nor strawberry farras on  mountain tops. We must put our  limited agricultural develop -  ments on to what there is of B.  C.'s agricultural ground."

But the good fathers of the  Mission might help us out in the  matter of Indian names. The old  timers at Half Moon Bay may  come to qur rescue and tell us  whether its significance is wet  or dry.  Behind Half Moon Bay is Mt.  Halloweil    (3890   feet),   named  atfer  one  of  Nelson's   captains  who,  it  is  stated,   "fearing the  effect of all the praise and flattery layished on his chief (Lord  Nelson after    victory    on    the  Nile)     determined    to    remind  him  that  he  was  mortal"  and  sent him some months after the  victory a coffin with  a signed  certificate pasted on the bottom  saying that "every part of this  coffin is made of the wood and  iron of L'Orient, most of which  was picked up by His Majesty's  ship under my command in the  Bay of Aboukir." He wrote (and  vnote that there was no such a  thing   as   an   anonymous   letter  with  men  of  this  breed)   "My  Lord, herewith I send you a coffin made  of part  of L'Orient's  mainmast,   that. when  you  are  tired  of this  life  you  may  be  buried in one of your own trophies; but may that period be  far distant is the sincere wish of  your obedient and much obliged  servant,  Ben  Halloweil."

Vancouver   reduced   it   to   its   present  limitation. ���  Before, concluding this introduction to Jervis Inlet, let, me  quote    Walkar's    reference    to  Capt.   Pender.  Pender  Harbour  was named "after Daniel Pender,  master,  Royal  Navy,  who  arrived on this coast as second  master of HM surveying vessel  Plumper, 9 November, 1857. He "  was promoted to master 21 June  1859  and on the death of Mr.  Bull iri November 1860 succeeded him as master of the Plum-*  per.   Transferred  January  1861  to the Hecate, successor to the  Plumper in the survey of this  coast. At the closing of the Hecate's  commission early in 1863  Pender was placed in command  of the Beaver, hired from the  Hudson's Bay Company and he  carried   on   the   hydrbgraphical  work with great zeal until November  1870, when the survey  terminated.     Capt.   Pender,   on  returning  to  England   in   1871,  was engaged for many years in  the   hydrographic   office,   London, latterly as assistant hydro-  grapher.  The Pende'rs,  a west-  of-England family, have been  in the naval service for several  generations. .

Was Brother  Of P.R. Man  GREAT surprise was expressed  by STarold Osborn here when  he learned that his brother,  CSM John Robert Osborn had  been posthumously awarded a  Victoria Cross for bravery at  Hong Kong. Harold, who resides  at Westview, told the News he  had not seen his brother since  1928 and that when he heard of  his heroic death in Hong Kong  he thought the chapter was  closed.  FATHER OF FIVE  CSM  Osborn,   father  of five  children,   who   had   railroaded,  ' farmed,  and been  on relief in  Western    Canada,      stubbornly  rallied his doughty company for  a last-ditch stand on December 19, 1941. Time and again he  picked up flying Jap grenades  being hurled at his position and  threw them back at the enemy  with a reckless disregard for his  own safety.  Finally a grenade fell too far  away and he had only time to  smother it. It exploded just as  he covered it and he was killed.  His body stopped the flying  shrapnel from seriously wounding any of his companions.

Now a  new world-wide emergency has arisen and it becomes necessary  to make another appeal.  0  ���  ���  This appeal is made to everyone who can add to our production  of vegetables, fruits and other crops���from farmers and  orchardists to the owner of the smallest home garden plot. The  entire world is tragically short of food. Canada, already exporting prodigious quantities of agricultural products, must send still  more to those in dire need.  Canada's Government has already issued an appeal for more  gardens. Householders throughout B.C. are urged to plant  vegetable gardens this year on a scale equal to or even greater  than wartime. You are asked to "dig against famine" as the  people of Britain are doing. Buy British Columbia seed, which  is unsurpassed in the world���plant your garden now and produce  all you can.

Personality Sketches  PEOPLE YOU KNOW  Sam and John Topham, Gibsons Landing's only twin boys,  enlisted in the Canadian Army  in 1940. Sam joined the 5th  Motorcycle Regiment, and John  the Canadian Scottish.  Later they both transferred to  the Armoured Corps, in which  they served in England and saw  action in Italy and in western'  Europe. After more than five  years' continuous service, during which the brothers rarely  saw each other, they returned  home aboard the same boat in  time to spend Christmas with  their   mother.  John is engaged in logging  and in cutting pulpwood, and  Sam, working at present on a  tug-boat, plans to erect his own  greenhouses in Gibsons.

Following his discharge, he  purchased Wakefield Inn, of  which he has been proprietor  since July, 1945.  A Place I Like to Buy From"  Whitaker's  Trading Post  General Merchants  DAVIS BAY WILSON CREEK  POLITICAL differences seem so tremendously important at times, but when the  shadow of death falls across the path,  they seem of such triviality as to make us  wonder why they ever were allowed any  part in the daily thought. The passing of  Royal Letherington Maitland K.C., attorney-general and leader of the Conservative party, brings this thought to the  minds of many of our readers, and into  sharp relief the fact that the Province  has lost one of its ablest administrators.  "Pat" Maitland was a good friend to  this newspaper, as were many of his colleagues on all sides of the political world.  We can pay him no more sincere tribute  than in the words of his pastor:  ''Eloquent in his speech, popular, gifted  in his profession and in public affairs, the  Honorable Mr, Maitland's claim upon our  respect and affection is, nevertheless, not  of these. The.sheer worth of the man is  With us. ... His gsiiety was notable, his  courage conspicuous, with a sportsmanship early trained in lacrosse, developed  in politics, sorely tried in bereavement  when he lost to the war a beloved "son.  at  'Of his affections and his piety one  speaks softly. These are not for public  handling.  "His home knows a story that is sacred  with memories not to be shared, but his  multitude of friends also found the warm  quality of the man's'heart.  "Underneath all were the hidden fortunes of his faith, simply and sincerely  represented. .  ��  A Raw Deal  THERE CAN be no disguising the fact that  resentment is running high in Mackenzie riding following Herbert Anscorrib's announcement that only $22,000 had been set aside for  road construction and road improvement in this  section of the province. When he announced  in his budget address that, the government was  going to embark on a $22,850,000 road program  the general feeling in this riding was that at  last we would be getting some of our just  deserts.  For years now we have been paying into  the provincial treasury a sum approximately  just double what we have been receiving in  the form of appropriations. During the war  years it was to be expected that labor and material shortages would cut down on any possible  benefits we might receive, but with the war  over and with such a large sum set asjde for  roads, it was only reasonable to expect that we  would get  "something for our money."  It was with this in mind that the Powell River  District Board of Trade recently went to a lot,  of trouble to prepare a brief for the honorable  minister's consideration. After quoting government'figures to show the long-standing inequalities in the matter of collections and appropriations in this riding, the brief respectfully suggested that a largely-increased road appropriation was in order.  What then, was the Board's surprise to receive, after a few perfuctory acknowledgements, a letter from Mr. Anscomb containing  not only an implicit denial of the government's  own figures, but also a querulous reminder that  there were other parts of he province besides  Mackenzie to be looked after. ������'[  If the honorable minister failed to make this  last statement sufficiently clear in his letter,  the list of appropriations as released last week  should leave no doubt in the minds of the tax-  pawers as to what he meant. v  We do not say he is just showing us where  we get off but we do think we have been given  a pretty raw deal.  i  1  .��  The Proofreader        Getting Out a Paper  There's a man who must decipher  All; the squiggly words;*w&; write;   ���# 'y .r'j;  Air the pothooks, all the corkscrews  In each sentence indite.

TIIE MAN who picks up the paper published  ��� >" %i& h^me'^ anU  says, "Nothing in it," is by no means a rare bird.  He lives in every town. As a rule, he reads all  the papers regularly. He never misses an issue  if he can help it. Some even prefer to borrow  a copy and thus save five cents. That class is  not above  explaining just how he'd run the  paper. Nine times out of ten he knows nothing  about getting out a newspaper. It's curious, but  true, that the general run of mankind cherish  illusions that there is no line of business that's  easier than publishing a newspaper. As a matter'  of fact, it's one of the hardest. Some peopley  cling to the idea that putting a '-piece" in the  paper costs nothing, or next to nothing. They  overlook the fact that every line that is published represents so much invested capital, so  much labor, so much time, so much expense.  Printing a paper nowadays costs real money.  Machinery and maintenance of same cost. Ink  and paper cost. Setting the type, running the  press, making up the forms, doing the liuhdred  and one odd jobs around an office, cost. Getting  out a paper, no matter how small, means ever-^  lasting vigilance, judgment, 'discretion,  an acquaintance  with  everybody,  mechanical  skill,  a thick skin, a level head, muscular legs   the  patience of Job, the wisdom of Solomon, and  the faculty of smiling when you don't feel that  way.  i  Published Every Friday  ������������'.' by   '  The Coast News Limited  Registered office���Powell River,  B.C.

The Canadian organization  is affiliated with the British ^and  United States Association and  represents all commercial transport pilots in Canada. On his  election, Captain Skelding said,  "The policy of employing R.C.A.F. pilots by the air lines of  Canada is heartily endorsed by  the Canadian Airlines Pilots'  Association. A splendid spirit of  fellowship exists between the  professional air lines pilots and  these veteran R.C.A.F. airmen  in assisting them in their transition from military to commercial flying."  Coal mine deaths totaled 1,034  in 1945, or 17 per cent fewer  than were reported in the same  months of 1944, says the National  Safety  Council.  A happy re-union of two brothers took place in Powell River  last week when Captain Holm  Brynildsen, master of the Norwegian freighter S. S. Lutz, and  Abraham Andersen of Seattle,  met for the first time in 37  years.  Captain Brynildsen, who had  two ships torpedoed under him  in the recent war, was in Powell  River.with a cargo of sulphur  from Galveston, Texas, while his  his brother "Abe" made the  journey here from Seattle together with his wife and daughter, Mrs. Lillian Christoffersen,  in order the hold the re-union.  SEA-DOG  A typical old "sea dog", Captain Brynildsen had many tales  to relate concerning his adventures on the briny deep, but it  was the two torpedoings that  interested   your   reporter   most.  Coming at the height of German U-boat activities on this  side of the Atlantic, the first occurred some 300 miles from Bermuda and in this one, the Captain escaped without serious injury. In the second, however, he  was not quite so fortunate.       ,  Steaming along in the dead of  night,' about 100 miles off the  coast of Florida, Captain Bryn-  ildsen's ship was suddenly torpedoed   without   warning.

True it had no  Srmnasium,    light,     plumbing,  ansportation, and a lot of other  hings, nothing but their lead  ienciis, and the courage and  ortitude, of teachers, who had  p walk through the trails to  ;et there.      ��  The pioneers built it, with  irhai volunteer help there was.

There was no such thing, as  other expenses, it had to be  itemized even to a stamp. A  new pupil had quite a time. He  had to be initiated by the rest  and if he passed the acid test he  was one of them. From it we  could take a lesson. Be patient,  wise, courageous too. God has  work for all to do.

He  asserted that young people  "think it's very clever to buy a  bottle."  Claiming that people looked  only for an evening's sociability  in beer parlours, the member  urged that a plebiscite for the  sale of beer and wines in restaurants be held and that the government take over the brewing  and distilling industries. Mr.  Gargrave also urged that, if this  were done, a campaign for the  exercise of moderation be also  undertaken.

It was soon realized that the  ship would have io be abandoned and the crew members,  after launching two lifeboats,  jumped into the water. In the  inky darkness, it was impossible  io see anything, but each crew  member had been provided with  a whistle similar to those used  by traffic policemen in the larger cities, and attracted the  lifeboats io himself by continually blowing his whistle.  Despite ��� his whistle, Captain  Brynildsen had to swim about  for nearly three hours before  being picked up. His only com-  . panion in this ordeal was his  dog which had somehow managed to find him. in spite of all  the confusion. The dog fought  gamely for its life but the raging  seas were more than a match  for it and it sank after about  one hour.  SIGHTED KEY WEST  After three hours of struggle  to keep afloat, Capt. Brynildsen  was finally picked up by one  of the lifeboats, but for another  53 hours he and his crew members had to battle mountainous  waves before sighting Key  West, one of the islands of the  Florida chain. At last .they  reached port, and were quickly  taken td the U:S. Navy hospital  to recuperate.  None the worse for wear, the  captain is now looking forward  to a   visit   to   his   home   near  Oslo���"the first in eight years".  Second-best in his list of 'com-  ing events' is the prospect of a  new ship. His present command,  the "Lutz" will ply the Powell  River-San    Francisco    run   for  about three months, after which  it will be replaced with a brand  new 3,500 ton vessel���with Captain Brynildsen at the helm.

Gargrave Urges  Higher Taxes on  Logging Outfits  URGING the placing of higher  , taxes on logging companies to  meet the cost of fire protection  and reforestation, Herbert Gargrave, MLA for Mackenzie, last  week denounced logging operators- as "despoilers of bur forest  wealth."  Mr. Gargrave was speaking  in the Legislature on the Sloan  Report and government plans  for the forest industries.  Recommending the inauguration of state forestry, Mr. Gargrave made it quite plain that  he had no faith in the desire of  logging companies to perpetuate  the forests. Only through state  forestry could the forest be  saved for the people of British  Columbia, he  said.  Mr. Gargrave contended that  the $350,000 to be spent on forest protection this year should  be matched by at least an equal  amount from the industry.  EXAMINES  BUDGET  . The member for this riding  examined the provincial budget  in detail. He foresaw trouble  ahead when provincial income  returns to normal and expenditures cannot be reduced to meej;  the reduction in revenue. In  1939, which he believed was a  normal year, the provincial income was ten millions less than  that expected in 1946;  "I am not sure that I agree  with either the Premier or the  leader of our group (Harold  Which) in not accepting the  fixed figure (of $18,000;000 annually) from thfr Dominion  Government, and holding out  for a return to the percentage  basis."

Our Children  THERE ARE    tricks    in every  trade, and quite a few that are  helpful to parents:  The day came when Johnny  said he was going to run away.  "I'm sorry," said his mother,  "we'll miss you, but if that is  ,what you want to do come along  and I will find a suitcase and  help you pack it."  The suitcase was packed, with  comments from mother such as  "Don't forget to put on an extra  sweater as it will be cold if you  have to sleep outside." And "I'll  put in a few cookies in case you  don't have any supper, but I  don't know what you will do for  breakfast."  .Eventually Johnny was .escorted out the door where mother  kissed him and said "Goodbye���  and don't forget��� if you ever  want to come home again we  will be. very glad to see you."  Johnny never went farther  than the garden gate, where he  sat forlornly on his suitcase for  some time^���after much deep  thought - he returned to the  house and said to mother, rather sheepishly, "I don't think I  am going to run away after all."  EARLY WAKENING  When Johnny wakes up much  too early in the morning and  disturbs the rest of the family���  set the alarm clock for a reasonable hour and tell him that he  is going to stay in bed and be  quiet until he hears the bell  ringing. He will most likely  stop waking up so early when  he knows that nothing is going  to happen until the alarm rings.  If Johnny is slow about eating  his meals, place the clock in  front of him, allot sufficient  time for him to eat his meal  without too much hurry, and  then tell him that when the big  hand reaches a certain figure he  is to be finished���if not, the food  is removed and he is allowed no  more until next meal time.  Send your problems to this.  column, and we will do our best  to help you.  Sound-  t  Please note that you can still travel without making  reservations, provided there is space.

ROSS went ot Vancouver at the end of the month  to meet her new daughter-in-  law, Mrs. Ivan Ross, an English  war bride. Mrs. Ivan Ross, a  Londoner, sailed for Canada on  the Aquitania with 1,200 other  war brides with a complement  of a hundred children. They  arrived in Halifax on March 2  and Mrs. Ross has nothing but  the highest praise for the reception they received there, and  mentioned the kindness and  service of the Red Cross in particular.  SHORT VISIT  Mrs. Ross managed only a  short visit with her husband  who is attending the university  in Saskatoon, as he had been  unable to find housing accommodation, but is looking forward to a more permanent reunion when her husband .returns  to   the   coast   at   Easter.    Mrs.  Ross has had many amusing experiences   with   unfamiliar   Canadian expressions.   Before she  sailed for Canada her husband  wrote that he had been unable  to   find   a   house   and   that   he  thought   they   would   have   to,  take   up   light   housekeeping���  Mrs.   Ross   immediately   got   a  map to  look up places  on the  prairies  where  there  might be  light houses!  RETIRED   CARRIAGES  She   also,   received   a   lettter  from a baby carriage firm advertising that they retired baby  carriages ��� to her this meant  that they would retire i.e. retiring on the old age pension���as  in England it would have been  spelled "retyre".  We were very  glad to hear that in spite of all  the  horrible  weather  we  have  been having Mrs. Ross was fortunate enough to choose a sunny  day for docking in Halifax and  arriving both in Vancouver and  Selma Park.
