This is a follow-up of the  successful Community Centres  Institute held at the University  in January which was attended  by more thtan 120 leaders of  communiy activities in the province.  ������  Sponsored by the Department  of University Extension and  Social work, the conference has  been arranged by the Interim  Provincial Community centres  Committee.  Members of this committee  are Mr. J. H. Bayley, Port Al-  berni; Mrs. E. B. Clegg, Sechelt; Mr. W. R. McDougall,  North Vancouver, Mrs. E. C.  Peters, Victoria; Mr. Charles  Spencer, Kamloops; Mr. L. R.  Stephens, Kelowna. Mr. Gordon  Wilson of Vancouver is the convenor, and Miss Marjorie V.  Smith of the Extension Department, secretary.

They will stay for  a few days with their sister and  her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Fred  McNutt.  The Sailor Lad is a new boat,  the result of four and a half  months' work by the two brothers, and it would do credit to  any pair of professionals. This  little ship is 34 feet in length,  with an overall beam of about  ten feet; she is powered b ya 15-  hOrsepower twin-cylinder Vivien gas engine. She is designed  to give the maximum comfort  inside and can be used for gill-  netting, long-lining or trolling,  and could do a fair job of packing if occasion demanded that.  Altogether this boat is a good  example of the trend in fishboat  design towards more safety by  greater size, more comfort, and  the inevitable result���better,  fishing.

'rTow  then, at the end of 10 months  your loan is repaid, and you  have paid the Credit Union a  total of $5.50 in interest. However, your $100 saving has alsjo  . been working for you from the  day we entered it on your share  account. Let us say that we pay  you 3 percent on share as we  did last year. In ten months  therefore your share account has  earned $2.50. Beside, last year  we paid all borrows, a borrowers  refund of 8 percent on interest  paid, let us say that this year  that refund will not be less than  10 percent���10 percent of $5.50  is 55 cents. Add that to the interest on your share account and  you get a total of $3.05 which  your transaction has earned you.  O.K., take the $3.05 from the  $5.05 which you paid in interest  on your loan, and you find the  net cost of borrowing your  $100 and saving it in your share  account is only $2.45.

By JIM  RENNIE  GRANTHAM'S Landing���At the  mouth of Hopkins Greek there  is a boat in the stocks, she was  the Lindy-Loo and was as smart  a little Tug Boat as ever drew  water and could turn on a dime.  I saw her during the winter  stripped to the ribs, as time  and tide  and taken their toll.  She is owned by the Poole  Bros, and today she stands rebuilt and about ready for launching.  They took her, 120 h.p. engine  out, rigged a shed over it, installed a band saw, shaped a new  keel and steam plates and added 2& feet-to her stature and  with a brand new deck house  when she takes the water the  Zindy-Zoo won't know herself.  The long wet winter with the  scarcity of materials made the  job a heart break but she stands  today, credit to the boys who  love the sea and ships.  Custom has it that her name  will be changed���Why, 1 don't  know, but she will be the Zindy-  Zoo to those who knew her well.  Speaking of boats, The Patsy  tied up for a day and a night  at our float and displayed her  waves. Two young, ex-service  men have converted her into  a travelling store and sell everything from a needle to an anchor, as I have trouble with my  hair I asked for some hair nets,  that stumped them but they offered me a good brand of hair  restorer.

That is not  the whole story either, for you  will find that as long as you  leave the 100 bucks which you  saved in your share account you  continue to enjoy that same Life  Insurance at no further cost to  you. If this shouldn't be plain  to you, please get hold of one  of our Officers who will be glad  to explain this plan to you until  you do understand it. This plan  is  specially  adopted  to  people  generally pay their  obligations  promptly Tbut  fail  to  plan  for  regular  savings.   Come   around  and see us about this. We sure  like to talk business with you.  Here is an  opportunity for an  extensive field of service whereby   everyone   one   of   you   can  actively     build     your     Credit  Union,   and   the   Credit   Union  will build you."

STILL HERE  IT WAS recently brought to the  attention of The Coast News  that an item appearing on the  front page of the April 5 issue  announcing the opening of a  new barber shop in Gibsons  Landing was supposed to have  caused some of Wally Graham's  long-standing patrons to think  that he had closed his barbering  department.

Impressive New  Weapons Shown  By U.S. Navy  THE UNITED States Navy last  week took the wraps off its  newest shooting irons in a demonstration of firepower directed by electronic brains. The array of guns and rocket launchers at the navy ordnance proving ground in Dahlgren, Va.,  ranged from wartime weapons  to newly-developed models still  largely hush-hush.  Pride of the proving grounds  appeared to be a three-inch  automatic-loading anti-aircraft  gun that threw a shell every  second, or twice as fast as a  hand-loaded gun.  Another impressive gun, discussed only guardedly, was a  three-inch, 70-calibre anti-aircraft gun. It was not fired. Discussed but not demonstrated was  a new rapid-fire turret, claimed  to make all present turrets obsolete. It houses three eight-  inch guns automatically-loaded,  directed and fired, without a  man in the turret.  The pelican uses his pouch  as a dip net for catching fish.  He stores nothing in it, but  swallows everything he catches.  Wally Graham, Correspondent  We are all very sorry to hear  of Jimmy Allen being so sick,  and in hospital in Vancouver.

The live wire troop of boy  scouts who go under the name  of the Eagle patrol. The scouts  are anxiously awaiting their  order for neckerchiefs colored  light blue, and are busy preparing for their first examination for which successful candidate will receive the tenderfoot  badge.  The wolf cubs are another  keen group of youngsters. We  expect to see some very inter-  teresting results from their  training shortly. Hre is a grand  chance for your boys to become  members of really worthwhile  active organizations. See that  they join the scouts or cubs.  Another achievement of the  S.C.C. is the newly formed Teen  Towners. Particulars of this  group appear elsewhere in this  issue.  However, I would like to say  a few words in connection with  the Teen Town meeting.  The eagerness displayed by  the Teen agers to form a spec#l  club of their own proved to the  executive members of the S.C.C.  that this group is surely going  places. The boys and girls conducted themselves ' admirably  and were a credit to the homes'  from which they came. Those  of us who had the privilege of  attending the happy meeting  were fully convinced that the  Teen agers of Sechelt and Wilson Creek are going to do things  in the future, and be a real credit to the communities they represent. '  Through the efforts of Mrs.  Fredrickson, manageress of the  Sechelt Inn, this meeting could  not help but turn out successful.  The ' use of the smart lounge  room for the meeting, the pop,  cake and cookies, and the general feeling of welcome given  everyone, created a lasting impression upon us all.  To such a busy person who  still can find time to jgive the  Teen Towners such a delightful  evening, we say, thank you Mrs.  Fredrickson for being such an  excellent hostess. Such assistance will long, be remembered.  All these splendid movements  are made possible by ccViSsfen-  tious citizens who have become  members of the S.C.C. Have you  obtained your membership card  yet? Do you belong to the S.C.C.  If you are a member you may  well be proud, of the fact that  you are taking a sincere interest in your community.

They kept coming  into his store with soft dring  bottles and milk bottles to turn  in and each time they collected  the regular deposit money.  Then he noticed that his supply of bottles in the backyard  was getting no larger. The two  youngsters had been taking the  bottles from the rear of the premises and trotting around to the  front of the store wtih them to  "cash in."  Both boys have been apprehended.

Friday, June 14, 1946  WITH THE coming of June and long  sunny days, everyone's thoughts are on  holidays or weekends spent at the beach  or the lake. Swimming, boating or fishing  will occupy much of one's leisure time.  It is unfortunate that such healthy and  wholesome pastimes should be fraught  with danger, and yet each year some hundred or more persons in British Columbia  are victims of drowning. A great many  of these victims are small children.  The number of deaths due to straight  drownings in British Columbia has been  tims of drowning. A great many of these  victims are small children.  In 1945 there were 104 accidental deaths  t>y drowning. In 27 per cent of these  accidents a boat was involved, the victims  meeting death due to falling in the water,  having their boat rammed, or overturning  Father's Day  FROM THE very first hour of the very  first time that he paces a hospital corridor in horrible suspense until the time  that he is fondly referred to as "Grandad**  every father is a logical candidate for the  title of "The Forgotten Man."  Mothers are glamorized in song and  story, but poor Pop is heard of only in  such ditties as "Father, dear Father, come  home with me now. The clock in the  steeple strikes one."  Noble soul that he is! he stands up  cateily under the slings and arrows, and  goes   about his   daily  task  of  bringing  home the bacon He suffers under  ������; the injustice of being held up to his quaking children as the stern and unyielding  arm of justice who lies in wait behind the  woodshed armed with a razor strap or a  willow switch. His only recreation is the  occasional poker game with his downtrodden brethren, and the calmness with  which he draws to an inside straight is  ruffled by the retribution that awaits him  if he stays out late;  June 16th is Father's Day. On this day  we should remember that at least one-half  of the parents in the country are fathers.  Send him a card or buy him a tie. He  probably won't say much, but he sure will  appreciate it.  Bible Reading  HE THAT believeth on the Son of God  hath the witness in himself: he that  believeth not God hath made Him a liar;  because he believeth not the record that  God gave of His Son. And this is the  record, that God hath given to us Eternal  life,,and this life is in His Son. He that  hath the Son hath life; and he that hath  not the Son of God hath not life. These  things ha.\fa I written unto you that  believe on the name of the Son of God;  that ye may know that ye have Eternal  life, and that ye may believe on the Name  of the Son of God.���I John, 5, 10-13.

The  weather along the British Columbia coast  and on many of the lakes is unpredictable  and sudden squalls are frequent. Many  places are unsafe for boating and canoeing at certain times of the season, involving unnecessary risk to those not prepared  to cope with the elements. Another dangerous practise often noted in the waters  of this district is that of standing up in  small boats.  Most of the deaths by drowning are  preventable. If this needless waste of life  is to be avoided, the necessity of learning  to observe sound safety practises early in  life cannot be over-emphasized. Only by  increased vigilance and by avoiding need-  ess risks can we decrease the toll taken  by drowning each year: in British Columbia.  Reverse Advertising  ASIDE possibly from some of its sweeping  war claims, the Soviet government does not  permit or believe in advertising. It regards  this sort of thing as an invention of the capitalistic system it pretends to abhor. It is questionable, however, whether it will get very  far in building up Russian standard of living  to the level of western Europe if it continues its present attitude.  In his recent "My Twenty-five Years in  China," John B. Powell cites an amusing example of how this ban of advertising backfired.  He states:  "The Soviet government decided to establish .  a canned good industry. Machinery was purchased, a factory was set up, and an American  man, an authority on canning, was brought  to Russia as an instructor and technical expert  in the organizing of the plant. The finished  product, consisting of tinned tomatoes, string  beans, fruits and other products, was shipped  to the retail stores; but there the product stayed  on the shelves, because the Russian public was  not familiar with this method of preserving  food.  "An American resident who had heard of the  predicament wrote a letter to one of the Moscow papers, suggesting that the products be  advertised in the customary American fashion.  The letter aroused a storm of indignation with  a flood of correspondence in all the newspapers reprimanding the bumptious American  and condemning all advertising as the work of  the  devilish  capitalistic  system.  "The surprising outcome was that the correspondence appearing in all the nespapers  constituted the best possible advertising, and  as a result of the interest aroused the canned  goods stocks began to move fast."  There is an easily apparent moral in that  story for those few people in this country who  still regard advertising as mere additions to  the cost of anything sold. The cheapest goods  are those that move quickly from producer to  consumer, the most costly those that remain  unsold on the merchants' shelves.���The Chilli-  wack Progress.

"You have been found guilty  of being concerned in many acts  of ill-treatment," the court  president said in passing sentence on Inouye.

Of course we expected our infant son to be  thrilled to pieces by all the wonders of the big city. But not Aloysius the unpredictable. He was obviously determined to be blase  about the whole thing. The tall buildings did shake his composure  a trifle, but only at first. He blinked his big blue eyes and stole  another look at the city hall. Then���"It's a house!" he declared  firmly.  Stanley Park he also took in his stride. He disliked everything  about the monkeys. But he did take a fancy to the parrot that  said "Hello" and "Goodbye". He kept waving to it all the way  out of the monkey house.  In a pitiful desire to impress him, swe saved the bears to the  last. We told him how big and ferocious they were. Then we held  him nip and exclaimed dramatically, "There's the bear!" An expression of utter disillusionment spread across his dimpled face.  "It's a cow!" he said disgustedly.

The Italians have struck a blow for  real freedom, and their kin-folk all over the world must rejoice.  ... * * *  Strikes and trade unions are the targets of a barrage of  criticism, in the press and on the radio these days. Nobody can  deny that the strike is a two-edged sword that cuts both, ways.  An imperfect weapon���yet it remains the working man's only  weapon against exploitation. In all the abuse leveled at strike  leaders and men, nobody comments on the employers who are  keeping thousands unemployed rather than give the men the  union security that is their real objective.  The old copybook "In unity is strength" is the hope of a peaceful world, where the workers are not* exploited and the peoples  live at harmony with one another. Trade unions are a step toward  that happy and ideal state. Our own local has come in for a good  deal of abuse lately���but as a friend so aptly remarks, the worst  criticisms have been levelled by nien who never offer a constructive suggestion, and are never available when real work is to be  done.  I have an older brother who has been a newspaperman since  he yelled "War Extry!" in Vancouver streets during the First  World War. A few years ago his fellpw-workers were agitating  for a union. Carl went along with them although he was luke-  , warm, since the union would eliminate my kid-brother's part-time  job. This is what he thinks of unions today���I quote, "In ten years  we got a five-cent raise and had to fight like the devil for it. Since  we got the union (Typographical! we have been offered twenty-  nine cents in raises and we also have the forty-hour week. And all  this over a period of two years." Pretty convincing I would say.  :..-���-: This is a very belated: acknowledgment, but I would like to  thank ail those people who have from time to time written me  ih criticism or praise, but always in a friendly spirit. I especially  want to thank Mr. J. Turf us for a very encouraging letter that  was much appreciated.. .  ���������.������  I  r  II. It.

Some you seek it out  . . . and others have it thrust  upon you. You jump into it  blindly. And when it's over you  stumble around as though you  were lost.  There's much to be said for  the tie-up. But there's much  against it too. Let's look the  think coldly in the eye and see  what it's all about.  You want somebody to go  places and do things with.  You don't want, to worry of  not having a partner ... of missing out.  You want somebody to like  you best.  You don't want the feeling of  not belonging to anybody..  You want everybody to know  that you've made a conquest.  You don't want your friends  to think you can't make the  grade.  You want someone to moon  over, someone to dream of,  someone to brag about.  You don't want anyone to  know that chills and fevers have  skipped you.  You want to know at least  one person intimately.  You can't see that you can be  that friendly without being in  love.  You saw each other all the  time, and when the question  came up, the answer was "yes".  You're only too pleased with  the arrangement.  But maybe you don't like ft.  You had three dates together.  Now everybody announces that  you're going steady. If you're  the girl, the other boys steer  clear of you like the plague.  They won't poach on another  boy's preserves. If you're the  boy, girls won't be seen with  you for fear they'll hurt your  girl's feelings, or be considered  wolverines. You're going steady  whether you like it or not. You  can protest to high heaven ...  but they'll just think you are  coy. You can step out with  somebody else, and the rest of  the crowd will think you're two-  timing, and tell you so. You're  in this. And the only thing you  can do is act as though you  were going steady, and have a  beautiful bust up, preferably  with audience. Then you're free  to start again.  If you're going steady it  amounts to being engaged ...  only there's no future in it.  You've pledged to love, honor  and cherish . . . and not look  at anyone else. You're linked,  hooked, chained.  This is easy enough to take  if you're crazy about the party  of the second part. If you have  sense enough to realize that it  won't last forever. If you're  prepared to be hurt, mortified,  chagrined, humiliated, and lonely. 'Cause all of these things  will happen when you stop going steady!  "CADDY", the Pacific coast sea  serpent which was seen here  recently by two local residents,  has made port in Sydney Harbor, V.I., a news item in the  Vancouver Sun states.  Three weeks ago Mr. Bert  Harper and daughter Rosalind  caught a series of close-up  glances of the monster when  he showed himself a few feet  off-shore opposite the Harper  home near the corner of 9th and  Marine, Westview. He was proceeding through the water at a  stately 5 m.p.h. clip at the time  ���a fact which indicates he must  have stopped off for a bit of a  rest somewhere en route, since  it is well over 150 miles to  Sydney from Westview.  His appearance here three  weeks ago was by no means the  first, various readers have informed the News.  Ten years ago "Sheriff" Bert  Ward saw him down-coast a  piece and took a shot at him  with a .22 rifle, which he  chanced to be carrying at the  time. The creature disappeared.  A couple of months later,  "Caddy" once more broke surface, this time before the astonished eyes of Jack Harper,  brother of the latest witness. Mr.  Harper had neither gun nor  camera and so another chance  to bring forward some concrete evidence of the monster's  existence   was  lost.  Hole-in-One For  Lady Alexander  THE GOLFER'S thrill of a lifetime���the elusive hole-in-one  ���came recently to Lady Alexander, wife of Canada's new  governor^general.  Her excellency, a golfer of  tournament calibre, picked up  her number three iron on the  short 146-yard sixth hole at the  Gyal Ottawa Golf club and  smacked the ball right into the  cup for the first ace of the 1946  season here. She told her companions, Mrs. Mark Milbank and  Mrs. W. B. Watson, that it also  was the first hole-in-one in her  golfing career.  SATURDAY, June 1 saw the  Britannia High School off on  their annual picnic. Thirty students, along with their principal, Mr. Maclnnis, spent the  day at Bowen Island. The trip  was made by chartered boat, the  "Tymac", and the weather man  offered the best he had in the  way of sunshine.  The day was spent in horseback riding, swimming, bicycle  riding and boating. The school  provided lunch and ice cream,  while the students footed their  own bill for supper served a�� the  hotel.  As the "Tymac" nosed her  way back to the Beach that  evening, everyone agreed it had  been one grand day.

Authorities in this sport  claim the eagle flies in excess  of 60 miles an hour, and when  it sights a wolf, drops like a  stone with talons outs+retched.  The eagle relies upon the shock  ing power of its dive, if it fails  to strike a vulnerable spot in  the wolf, a lively battle ensues . . . with the eagle often  coming out second best.

There were many  ingenious   ideas   and   everyone  could be  easily  copied by any  : man who had his heart in bis  work and at very little expense.  There were swings, teeter totters,   parralel,    horizontal   *and  climbing bars made out of pipe;  one man had made a shallow,  cement lined pool, for the children   to   sail   their   boats   in   in.  winter  time   and  wade   in  the  summer,   another   had   made   a  cement    runway    so    that    the  children   could   ride   their   tricycles and scooters without going on the street, another had  built  a   small  merry-go-round;  there were many such ideas and  everyone   built  with   odds   and  ends of material that cost very  little.

Trees That Own  Themselves  Most trees, famous as well as  just ordinary ones, are the property of individuals or communities or governments. However, there exists one tree that  is master of its, own fate.  Near the city of Athens, Ga.,  sands a huge white, oak. Away  back in 1920,...this tree was  owned by a man who was very  fond of it. He had, a deed made  out giving the tree possession  of itself and all the land within  eight feet of its trunk On all  sides. ��  In Kentucky, at a place called jpippaspass, a sycamore owns  itself. A deed was filed by its  owner in   1918.  AND COMPANY LTD.

Under the combined weight  of Krakatoa and the volcanoes  Dananan and Perbowaten, the  subterranean pocket of white  hot lava had been building up  an enormous pressure. Finally,  with all the fury of a hell unleashed, a stream of lava burst  forth with a deafening roar. The  ocean rushed in the opening.

The heart  was ripped out of Krakatoa and  14 cubic miles of rock streaked  upward into the sky, in the most  terrible blast in all history.

SECHELT  GARAGE  AL MEE  GIBSONS LANDING���The junior and senior high school  girls of the Howe Sound United  School had the pleasure of listening to Miss Barbara Kennedy,  business manager of the National Film Board office in Vancouver, who gave a talk on "Office Jobs".  Miss Kennedy pointed out  that B.. C. was the best province  with the possible exception of  Ontario, in which to secure an  office poistion. This is true because the head offices of western firms are chiefly in Vancouver, and B. C. has its many  natural resources and the shipping and port facilities which  lead to large office staffs.  For   training,   Miss   Kennedy  advised   a   complete   busSnejss  course, taken at a well-known  school, preferably with a small  enrollment,    and    at    least one  year as a clerk in a department  store.  The latter, she said, helps  one to adjust oneself to working  with all types of people and to  learn the give-and-take of cooperation.    She   advised   those  who found this difficult, to stay  but of the business world and  stressed deeply the point of the  completion    of    the      business  course regardless of high wages  offered before the training was  completed.  Miss Kennedy also pointed  out that stenography or clerking was the first job in an office and it was up to the individual to work her way up from  there. She also said that stenography was a means of working into other fields of occupation.  The speaker continued by  pointing out that offices do not  hold much glamour, but they do  offer plenty of hard routine  work. "If you do not like routine work, try to get into a smaller office," suggested the speaker.  If advancement is slow, Miss  Kennedy advised the girl to  leave and find a better place,  until she has found the career  she is aiming for.  Thanks to Miss Kennedy's efforts, we are sure the girls have  a much more intelligent outlook  on the business world.  ���Shirley Kirkland  Robin's Ear  HAVE YOU ever wondered how  robins   are  able  to  catch   so  many worms, since they spend  so much time hopping around?  The answer is really very  simple, and has solely to do  with sound waves.  The robin hops over the  ground, exerting as much pressure on the earth as he can,  thereby jarring the earth. He  then stops quickly and listens,  to the worms moving toward  the surface of the earth. It's a  fact that worms will come out  of their holes to investigate  noises. Mr. Robin knows this.  llim!imilV!!HI!:i_!lli_^l!_a!l!!_^li_^!!mi!II!iP3  By Larry Stewart  A member and a former member were honored at the regular  monthly gathering of the  Townsite Ladie's Guild on May  30.

Many of the local gardeners have been noticed rubbing their hands together and  casting longing eyes at the barns.  By GEORGE GIBB  GIBSONS LANDING���Mr. M.  Roberts addressed boys of the  Howe Sound United School on  Teen Towns, and gave a review  of the growth of the movement.  About a year ago, in Pentic-  ton, a group of teen-agers started a club in which they elected  a president, council, and police  force, and this became the first  teen town in B. C. After that,  the idea caught on, spreading  all over Vancouver, where there  are now 25 teen towns, and to  different places up and down  the coast.  The meetings are run in an  orderly fashion, just as a real  town is run. The president is  the chairman, while an adult  usually sits by in case they need  advice on some matters. These  clubs or towns put on dances,  supply refreshments, and provide other means of amusement  for the teen-agers. The music  for these entertainments is supplied by recordings or by the  Teen Town orchestra.  If a new club, upon starting,  needs any help, either financially or in an advisory capacity,  the Vancouver Sun 'will help it  once a year. It pays the expenses of all the presidents of the  different, teen towns in B. C. to  meet once a year in- Vancouver.  Everywhere that these Teen  Towns have started they have  been a success in bringing up  the younger generation in a  happier and mentally healthier  atmosphere.  Gibsons Landing should start  a teen town, Mr. Roberts suggested.  The rules are sirhple:  No drinking. No smoking. No  profanity. No gambling.  In order to draw up a constitution, the Vancouver Sun will  send one based on the Penticton  constitution.  Mr. Roberts was given a hearty vote of thanks in applause as  a sign of appreciation by the  students of the school.
