 GIBSONS LANDING���The annual budget drive of the Victorian Order of Nurses, Elphinstone branch was held during  the week May 6th to May 11th,  through the district from Hopkins Landing to West Sechelt.  The public responded most generously to the appeal, a total of  $528.35 being collected.  During the week -following  the drive a meeting of members  of the V.O.Nv board and the  canvassers was held at the  home of the secretary, Mrs. D.  Donaldson. T he participants  were much gratified by the  splendid results, and the officers expressed profound thanks  to the many persons and organizations who had assisted the  work by aiding publicity and  by the wearying work, especially in this scattered district,  of door to door canvassing. The  thanks of the brnach were expressed through their board to  the general public who by their  contributions had made the  drive  a  success.

Dinner  Held, Sechelt Inn  THE   LONG   delayed   P.C.M.R.  dinner was finally held in the  Sechelt  Inn  Friday  May   31st.  It was supposed to have been  the   Rangers   farewell   dinner,  but it took on another meaning.  It was a farewell to .the old ^pr-  ganization which was disbanded  after the war was over arid a  welcome to the new organization, the object of which is to  perpetuate the ideals and activities of the Pacific Coast Militia  Rangers. This hew organization  is the Pacific-Coast Militia Ranger . Association.    It    provides  training in practical rifle shooting,   and   for   other   activities  which   will   maintain   and   enhance the peace and security of  this country. This new association will be looked on as a "civilian Rifle Association" and will  have the blessings of the Department  of  National  Defence.  One of the objects of the  P.C.M.R. dinner, was Xo have  members present to elect offers for the association. E. W.  Parr Pearson was chosen as  Ranger Captain and Ralph Mc-.  Cullough was chosen second in  command. Among those present  were men who had seen service overseas and who were anxious to carry on the good work  by becbming members of the  new association.

Les Young  Takes Over  Sechelt Garage  LES YOUNG recently of the  Wilson Creek Garage is putting on the finishing touches of  the Sechelt Garage which he  took over a short time ago and  enlarged. Les is preparing to  give.an efficient service to the  motorists on the Peninsula. Added to his experience of long  standing as a motor mechanic  will be those of his associates  Fred Markert and Al Mee.  Les Young spent the early  part of his life on Prince Edward Island, moving from  there, he served his time in  automobile machine shop in  Calgary from 1923 to 1927. At  the end of that time he came  to the coast and spent about  four years as an engineer- on  tug boats. Always looking for  a chance to broaden his knowledge in the mechanical line,  Les next went into the B.C.  woods and spent about six or  seven years as donkey engineer  and truck mechanic. He left the  woods to go overseas with the  Royal Canadian Electrical Mech-  ical. Engineers jand reached :the*  * rank ofArmamehf Quartermaster Sergeant. When he received  his discharge from the army he  , came to the ePninsula to work  for the Wilson Creek Garage  Ltd., until a short time ago when  he decided to go into business  for himself; He is married and  has two children.  Fred Markert who was Les  Young's chum in the same unit  overseas, joined him recently  and brought a wealth of mechanical knowledge and ability  with him. Fred originally came  from Alberta. He held the rank  of sergeant in the army and  passed with high qualifications  as an army motor mechanic.  Previous to joining up he had  long experience in motor mech-  f*mhf*l work. He married an  English girl while overseas and  is looking forward to the time  she will join him in this country. She is expected to arrive  sometime this summer.  Al Mee who is well known in  this district, is an expert in auto-  body  repairs   and  metal  work.  Al was born and raised in Vancouver.   For   several   years   he  was  manager   of   the   Crescent  Auto   Metal   Works   and   was  three   years   with   Johnson  Motors.  For  sometime he  was  on  contract with Begg Motors,  Vancouver   Motors,   Stonehouse  Motors and Central Auto Painters doing auto body work and  painting jobs for them. He spent  several years up the coast doing the same work at Westview.  Powell    River    and    Campbell  River. He was with Burn and  Jackson   Logging   Co.   for   the  last two years doing their body  and metal work. Al is now taking   over   this   work   for   Les  Young.   This   will   include   upholstering,   top  work,  painting,  complete    automobile    collision  repairs,    radiator    repairs   and  putting in broken windows and  windshields. Al is married and  has  four   children.  Legend  amis  Castle  Has Counterpart Here  Archbisop Duke  Blesses Sechelt  Church  His Grace, Archbishop Duke,  of Vancouver, was an honored  guest at Sechelt over the weekend. His visit was to bless the  new Catholic Church of the Holy  Family, (St. Vincents Missions)  at Sechelt and to give the Sac-  rement of Confirmation to some  children and grown-ups of the  district. The ceremonies were  very interesting to the large  congregation. The choir was under the direction of Mrs. Kitty  Englin and Mrs. J. A. Evans was  the organist.  Rev Father Dunlop of Sechelt  and   Rev.   Father   Sowerby   of  Vancouver   assisted   His   Grace  the Archbishop with the ceremonies.    Rev.    Father' Baxter,  O.M.I., pastor of the newly consecrated  Church  spoke  briefly,  thanking those who had  given  generously   to   help   build   this  lovely church. His Grace spoke  mainly to the children on the  y^acrem^nt-; zoi yy ^Confirmation  which   thev  had   jiist   received  and asked them all to keep away  from    liquor    until    they   had  reached the age of 2,1 years and  knew   what   they   were   doing.  His Grace said it was a terrible  state ot affairs to see the young  people drinking at dance hails  rind parties in  the cities.  Sunday afternoon His Grace Consecrated     the     new     Catholic  church at Gibsons Landing. Rev.  Father    Baxter    has    certainly  worked hard to get both these  churches erected and he is now  working on a Catholic church at  Halfmoon Bay and  another  at  Port    Mellon.    Congratulations  Father Baxter.  Elks'Social  Attended by  Dignitaries  ON SATURDAY evening, May  18, Lodge No. 119 of the  B.P.p.E. held a social evening  in the Parish Hall. They were  honored by the presence of Mr.  Johnson Peters, District Deputv  Grand Exalted Ruler; Mr. M.  Stewart, Gfrand Trustee and  secretary of the B. C. Elks Association and Dr. J. C. McDonald, president of the B.C. Elks  Association.  A lovely social evening was  enjoyed by the forty members  nresent. The following day, a  luncheon party of twelve were  taken to Cheekye for chicken  luncheon at the famed Fisher  Lodge. The local lodge is expecting the "Travelling Elk*'  with a hundred or more members on June 26, 1946 by a  special chartered boat.  Saturday evening, June 1,  1946 the B.P.O.E. Lodge held  its   Trans-Canada   Ball   in   aid  By Margaret Allan  (Sechelt West)  THIS IS a legend about Glamis  Castle, the ancestral home of  our present Queen. It seems  they started to build it on a different site than the present one.  For some unknown reason, as  the workmen arrived in the  mornings, the work they had  done the previous day was all  taken down. The ghosts must  have had labor troubles, too!  Right here at West Sechelt  we have a legend in the making, too.  On the Mason Road there are  two bad spots over which some  queer things happen. First of  all, we pester the government  for about six months. ?vd then  one day along comes the grader���*  man. He is received with smiles  from everyone, like Admiral  Halsey going into Japan. He  fixes the road.  Night comes, and rain in the  morning. Presto! the road disappears again. No road. No  bus.  I often wonder that on Saturday nights (I think that was  the night Tam-O-Shanter lost  the tail off his horse) that some  of the boys don't sink into it,  ���and-^at1-;we,.d6rj_t.-fmal"th'em: on.  Sunday ::^mbr^mjgs-i?>wiih~',T^e_f.  faces sticking out of the naud  and their ears holding them up.  I understand it nearly swallowed the grader.  As time goes on, I suppose,  we will keep on pestering the  government and stalking the  engineers, and we will still  have the Moat Mystery with  us. Who knows���we might go  back a whole decade���and have  a haunted house!  Escapes Injury  ���SECRET   COVE���Mr.   Ivor   B.  Jorgenson of Secret Cove narrowly escaped serious injury to  himself and damage to his car  on Sunday afternoon when a  front tire apparently blew out  and he lost control of the auto.  Mr. Jorgenson was on his way  to Seattle and was hurrying to  catch the water bus at Gibsons  Landing. When the blowout occurred he had little control over  the vehicle and it threatened to  swerve sharply to the left, but  the driver fought against this,  believing the car would roll  over at the speed he was travelling. He managed to get it  turned to the right again and  went off the road and down a  steep slope several hundred feet  east of the Selma Park store.  Luckily the car > went slowly  down the slope and came to rest  against a stump or would have  carried on down another 75 feet  to the beach below.  IB Page Two  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B.

Irked by Agreement Between  Company and Employees, Says Foley  THE Province of British Columbia and the Dominion Government  have signed an agreement, for a ten year period, to expand the  existing facilities for Vocational Education on the Secondary School  level. The Dominion Government and the Provincial Government  will give financial assistance on condition that the School Boards  use these funds for extending the present facilities for Vocational  training.  Vocational Courses will be offered Grade X to Grade XII pupils  in High Schools, and additional grants will be given School Boards  providing that the students devote half or more of their time to  Vocational work.  The general purpose of this agreement is to train the youth of  the country so that they will be better fitted when offering their  services to employers, and to help in developing the natural resources  of the country.  iorninvii, cons to suit local needs  Courses may be offered to suit local needs in any one of the  following families of occupations: Forest Industries, Mining. Fishing,  Agriculture, Communications and Transportation, Manufacturing  and Mechanical Occupations, Construction, Business Occupations,  Public Service Occupations, Personal Service, Home Making, and  Artistic Occupations.  BURSARIES  Financial assistance will be given students who wish to take  Vocational courses in a distant High School���if their local High  School does not offer the courses required by the student.  VOCATIONAL TECHNICAL INSTITUTE  A Vocational Technical Institute is proposed to offer advanced  courses for Technicians' to Grade XIV level. Graduates of such an  Institute would follow a new avenue of education to a Junior College  level, and would provide our industries with well-trained Technicians.  ADULT EDUCATION  Vocational buildings and equipment provided under this agreement will be used for adult education purposes. Night schools will  be able to offer extended Vocational curses to the adult population  in the various communities where Vocational Schools are established.  Department of Educafioii  PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS     -     VICTORIA, B. C.  Honourable Geo. M. Weir, Minister.  CLOSING of the Powell River  mills for 36 hours last week  was an act of 'reprisal' by the  I.W.A. leaders against a new  agreement signed between pulp  companies and papermakers'  unions.  This is the opinion of Harold  S. Foley, president, Powell River  company, who, in an interview  with the Vancouver Sun last  week, said:  "Immediately following ' the  successful conclusion of negotiations between the four pulp  companies and the two international unions, the I.W.A. leaders  ordered their pickets, who represent a C.I.O. union organization and who have no connection with out employees or operations, to intervene at Powell  River,   forcing   certain   of   our  people to stop handling logs in  our pond, which had the effect  of  closing  the  plant  early  today, (Thursday).  WHAT IS "HOT"?  "The    issue    apparently    is���  what constitutes 'hot' logs, what  constitutes a 'hot' product? The  general   conception   of   a   'hot'  product  is   one   that  has  been  produced   by   workers   after   a  work stoppage  is in  effect.  In  this case, all logs involved were  produced by I.W.A. union workers before the  day the strike  became effective a fortnight ago.  These logs were also towed in  by union tugs.  "Therefore in the mind of any  reasonable, thinking person there  is no justification whatever for  our logs being branded by the  I.W.A. leaders as being 'hot' and  unfair.  "On the surface, so far as we  can see, it is an unscrupl6us  tactic to cause embarrassment  to another union.  RAPS I.W.A.

COLDS  Colds are extremely common  among infants and young children. The early signs of a cold  are slight rise in temperature,  restlessness, sneezing, coughing,  and discharge from the nose.  When such signs appear the  baby should be kept in bed. No  cold, no matter how mild,  should be ignored. Such serious1  conditions as bronchitis and  broncho-pneumonia are usually  merely an extension of what  originally was a mild infection  fant be exposed to anyone suffering from a cold. If the mother  has a cold, she should avoid  handling the baby if possible.  If this is not possible, she should  cover her nose and mouth with  a mask. Other members of the  family suffering with colds  should be kept away from the  baby altogether.  EAR ACHE  Young infants are just as susceptible to earache as older  children; in fact it is usually  attributed to teething. Any evidence of this condition should  be considered as a danger signal  and the family physician immediately called. Nothing should  be put in the ear, except on the  advice of the physician. High,  unexplained temperatures are  very often the first sign of disease in the middle ear.

C.  Friday, June 7, 1946  By BOB AMESS  BEDTIME STORY FOR THE MODERN CHILD  Heather likes a story "to go to sleep on". And  usually it goes something like this. "Daddy,  will you tell me a story?" "Yes, dear, what  will it be one out of the book from the library?"  "Oh, I think I would like a true one." "O^ki.  then, you snuggle down and I'll tell you one."  So the story starts:  Once on a time there as a little snow flake.  And it nestled away up in a fleecy cloud high  in the sky. ("Daddy, is this a really truly  story, huh?" "Yes���now you stay covered up  nice so that you will get sleepy.") And one  day the cloud came down low over the mountains and was crowded up with other clouds  into a dark cloud. And the little snowflake  and all its brothers and sisters and aunts and  cousins and friends and neighbors in the clouds  jumped out and floated quietly and slowly  down onto the mountainside. And there they  lay silently all through the long winter months.  Then the springtime came, and the soft rain.  The snowflakes began to melt, and as they  melted they ran along the side of the mountain  together so that a little stream was born. The  little creek trickled along down the hillside,  skipping merrily over the stones and splashing  noisily over the steep banks in little waterfalls.  Sometimes it rested, too, in pleasant level  places where it could make a pool. The wild  animals came and drank the water there, and  the little flowers opened wide eyes to admire  themselves reflected in the pool.  So the stream flowed on, and it joined a  another one, until finally the water reached a  big river. A little further down the river men  had made a big dam across the water, so thajt  a big lake was formed. In the the middle of the  dam were big pipes, and through the pipes  the water burst with a great force. It flowed  through the pipes and into a big building where  it was used to spin large wheels with motors  connected to them. This was called a power  house and it made electricity. The electricity  was sent out along wires, over hills and  through valleys, and along the city streets, until  it reached our own corner. Then there was  a wire into our house, and right up to thiis  light that Daddy is going to turn off right now  so you can get to sleep.  THE UNITED States War Department's investigation of caves as passible places of refuge,  and perhaps even as sites for homes and industrial activity in case of an atomic-bomb war,  recalls a book of the last century by Bulwer'-  Lytton which had some weirdly prophetic passages. It was called "The Coming Race", and  was about a people of the future who had established a subterranean world of their own.  They had fled there to escape annihilation.  A newly discovered power, called "Vril", was  capable of being used beneficially, for lighting,  propelling vehicles, operating factories, flying,  or destructively, since each individual could  blast another to a cinder simply by pointing a  rod at him.  Compare it with atomic energy:  It is capable of being raised and disciplined  into the mightiest agency over all forms of  matter, animate or inanimate. It can destroy  like a flash of lightning; yet-differently applied, it can replenish or invigorate, lift, heal  and preserve.  On the report of some observer in an air--  boat, they can estimate unerringly the nature  of intervening obstacles, and the extent of  which the projectile instrument should-J��  charged, so as to reduce to ashes within a space  of time too short for us to venture to specify  it, a capital twice as vast as London.  Bulwer-Lytton's imaginary world had almost  annihilated itself before the survivors learned  that the terrible new power had made war  obsolete. All notions of government by force  gradually vanished, he records. Since everyone  knew that by use of the terribly destructive  agency, small States were as strong as the  larger ones, the necessity for self-preservation  disappeared. Moreover, no State found any  advantage in attempts at aggrandizement.  Atomic energy today is not as far advanced  as Bulwer-Lytton's "Vril". Very few nations  have the facilities for producing the weapons  which descended on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  It is quite possible, however, that discoveries  and development will give small nations power  to wreck large ones. Will it not then be obvious  that it could result in mutual annihilation?  And with this as a deterrent, could not the  nations see the necessity of collective-security?  by the KILOCYCLE SLEUTH  NOSTALGIC NOTICES  Jack Carson's occasional reference to Milwaukee on his air-  show is no random choice of  his script writers.

REMEMBER WHEN  An ancient issue of the Town  Crier, vintage 1934, yields the  following; Bing Crosby had a  fifteen minute stint on CBS:  Wayne King and his ork were  very popular; among the comedians were Burns and Allen,  the Baron Munchausen, and the  Carefree Carnival; Fi'ad Waring,  Ted Fiorito, and Jack Denny  seemed to be the top bands. The  original Hit Parade had made its  bow on KPO and was called  the Big Ten. Ork was under  direction of Meredith Willson  and if our memory serves us  right it was far and above the  present version.

St. Laurent entertained in  honor of her first daughter-in-  law, Mrs. Hughie St. Laurent.  This was the first visit of the  honored guest to our communis  and great pleasure was expressed by the guests in meeting a  very charming young bride. The  marriage took place in Montreal  on May 4 and Mr. and Mrs. St.  Laurent are to be congratulated  on such a popular addition  to a very popular family.  * *    *  Softball season is away to a  rather one-sided start, with the  high-school team mowing down  everything it has met so far, but  beware, there'll come a day.  * *    *  The weather lately, has been  a boom to the local gardeners.  This last week or two has been  busy ones with shovels, rakes  and hoes and most are settling:  back now to keeping the weeds  from crowding out their efforts.  Yes, considering the many gardening hazards encountered in  our mountain home, we take a  back seat to none.  * *    *  On May 25, the beach held  their yearly May Day celebration. For the first time in a  great many years, the mine had  a holiday too and many made  the trip 'to "theT beach for the  sports crowning of the copper  queen, the ball game and dance.  Yes, the Townsite had a rather  deserted look that day but wait,  our turn will come on July 1.  * *    *  A number of visitors were in  the community over the holidays week-end. Elizabeth McKenzie, Hughie St. Laurent,  Frank and Gordon Bogle were  visitinsf home. Bill Miller was  also noticed among the visitors.  Sunday, May 26, saw the  swimming nool opened for the  season. Although the weather  was just a shade on the cool,  side for swimming, many enjoyed a plunge. Miss Ruth Johnson, who is on a month's holiday from her duties at the  Vancouver General Hospital, is  acting as attendant until one of  the high-school girls are free to  take over.  * *    *  Local 663 of the LU.M.M. and  S. W. met the company this next  week in the meeting drawing  up a new yearly contract. From  this meeting came the burning  question of the week. Does the  recent legislation, pertaining to  the Fourty-four hour week,  cover the hardrock mines?  The face and the neck contain one-fourth of all our  muscles.  From the B. C. Capital  ion  urtacing  NEARLY $1,000,000 will be  spent this year by the Public  Works department on the surfacing of provincial highways,  it was announced by the honorable E. C. Carson, minister of  public works. The work however, is dependent upon the delivery of asphalt.  Tenders for the surfacing  work have been called and the  work will be pressed forward  during the fine summer months.  The tenders cover four main  contracts-���one covering Vancouver Island, one the Fraser  Valley and Lower Mainland, one  in the Okanagan and the other  in the Upper Fraser Valley.  FRUIT  SHIPMENT  Three thousand tons of ras-  " berries and strawberries frojn  this year's pack in British Columbia have been contracted for  by the United Kingdom Ministry of Food, it was announced  by the honorable L. H. Eyres,  minister of Trade and Industry.  These berries will be shipped in  S02 solution but some concern  is felt in connection with the  fulfilling of this contract inasmuch as 15,000 barrels are needed and the present strike situation may make it difficult to  secure the necessary shipping  material.  NEW INDUSTRY  The provincial Department of  Fisheries in co-operation with  the Dominion Government,  will embark upon an experiment  with a view to establishing a  lobster industry on the coast.  Fifty acres of foreshore on the  coast near Nanaimo have been  set aside for this purpose. Lobsters will be imported from the  Atlantic .seaboard with a view  to establishing them here.  PARK RESORT  Tenders for the construction  of an elaborate tourist resort in  Manning Park have been called  by the B. C. Forest Service, it  was announced by the honorable E. T. Kenney, Minister of  Lands and Forests.  The initial expenditure will  be. approximately $50,000 and  the resort ultimately may be  developed into a. $200,000 undertaking. The site for the concession is six miles east of Allison Pass on the Hope-Princeton Highway.  ��� Picnics to Bowen Island during this past week include the  the following: West Vancouver  High School, Vancouver Technical School, The Army and  Navy Stores and Knox United  Sunday School. In spite of the  warnings of the early morning  thunderstorm on Sunday, members of several picnics arrived  only to face a dull day and  heavy rain showers.  If Clothes Could Onhj Talk  By EDNA JAQUES  THE SETTING  An attic somewhere in Canada where the lady of the house  has the hoarding habit, good to  a certain extent, but dynamite  with millions of people in Europe suffering from lacjk of  warm clothing.  Of course this couldn't Be  your attic . . . or could it?  OLD TWEED SUIT  To a pert number on the next  clothes hanger.  "Here I hang, month after  month. The only time I ever see  the sunlight is when the mus-  sus takes me down and hangs  me on the clothes line in the  back yard to air . . . then back  Icome into this attic . . . I'm  so sick of attics I could split a  seam."  SLICK LITTLE DRESS  "Me, too, sister. The young  lady of the family, Miss Fanny,  bought me to go to a ball game  four years ago, she wore me  once���just once���had a fight  with her date and said I brought  her bad luck and here I've hung  ever since, with only the occasional airing to keep the moths  away. The way I feel now, I  wish the moths would get me,  at least I'd be useful for something-���if   only   to   make   more  NOTICE  Pile Driver will be in vicinity of Jervis Inlet,  Pender Harbor and Gibsons Landing during June  and July.

I was fresh and  new then and the master said I  looked "chic" whatever that  means. The mistress had a wonderful time ahd then got sore  at me because she said I was  "really too warm for steam  heated houses" so here I've hung  like a side of beef ever since. I  sure wish I could get out and  be some use in the world."  WOOL DRESS  "I like going on hikes and  picnics and ball games too, after all we're only young once.  I'm such a nice color too, you  don't get these rich browns  every day now. I go well with  autumn days, rusty colored  leaves and golden rod are right  up my alley ... I wish the young  miss would take me for a walk  some day or give me away to  someone who would appreciate  me".  TWEED SUIT  "Yesterday the attic window  was open to let the air through  and I heard two women talking  on the sidewalk right in front  of the gate any they were having a real go of it.  One of them said that there,  are millions of people in Europe  who need arm clothing. My  dear, did I ever; start to listen  in after that, wouldn't it be  wonderful to get e trip to Europe, after sll, my dye came  from there and I feel sort cf  related to them."  WOOL DRESS  "It would be wonderful to  really know that you were doing some good in the orld too,  even a dress likes to know it is  appreciated. Life is pretty dull  in this cobwebby attic, I'd rather  be thread-bare en someone's  back than hang here and just  get limp from age".  The marriage has been solemnized in the Catholic church  at Port Hammond of Alice Parassini and Anthony Stobart.  The ceremony was preformed  by Father Carol on May 28 at  3 p.m. for the daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. John Parassini and  the son of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas:  Stobart.  The bride chose for her marriage a dusty rose suit with  white accessories and a corsage  of roses. Mrs. % Fogolin the  bride's sister chose as her outfit a beige suit with brown  accessories and a corsage of pink  carnations.  Mr. Bruno Parassini, a brother of the bride was best man.  A wedding supper was served  for the friends of the happy  couple at the home of the bride's  parents.  For traveling the bride donned a light fur trimmed top  coat. The newlyweds will spend  their honeymoon in Victoria.   '  The bride is a former resident of Woodfibre having lived  with her sister, Mrs. V. Fogolin  for nearly 3 years.  BOWEN  *  Miss P.

C._  Friday, June 7, 1946  By W. Roberts, Hardy Island.  ���    ���The third in a series���    _  HAVING PAID a visit after  some years absence to my old  home at Roberts Creek, where  I was very surprised to find so  many new homes growing up in  the woods there, and after my  different talks with the builders of these homes���all of  them with different ideas of a  perfect home���I now believe  my last idea might be of some  help these days.  Back in 1936 you might remember we all had more time  than money. As I see it, there  is not much difference between  then and now, only in the name.  We have more cash on hand,  less time to build, but we must  balance this for we can't buy  the goods we believe we must  have to build our home with.  So today we are about as we  were then, when I said "Let's do  as our grandfathers did���let's  help ourselves to a home, and  let's have the best there is to be  had.  We did this in every way.  When I returned to this, our  home,   I  felt  sure  I   had   seen  nothing better, nor one I would  consider   in   exchange.  I had listened to some tell of  my building of this home, how  I had taken rough lumber and  made the windows with pieces  of glass of different sizes and  shapes; of taking gravel from  the beach and putting a little  cement to it and getting these  wonderfully bright clean floors.  Of going to the woods and of  bringing back these bright, varnished walls; of going back and *  bringing out cedar shakes for  the roof.  We had, not nails, but just  wooden pegs to hold things together. They are one inch and  bigger, and hundreds of them  are hidden within the thousand  MacLeod Bros.  GENERAL STORE  PENDER HARBOUR  > DRY GOODS  > GROCERIES AND  MEATS  > FISHING SUPPLIES  > HOME OIL AGENT  )  INDEPENDENT  FISH BUYERS  (and more)  pieces which went  into the twenty outer walls.  The fireplace is built without  a firebrick; the water pool cost  but a little labour.  And so on.  Yes, of course you can receive  such things, but you must not  mind being called a work-hound  or even a damned fool to put^so  much work into such a thing  when you might get it for less  labor.  One friend, as he walked with  us, said "You will not understand me when I say that all  this work���for I see the work  more than the beauty���makes  me feel sick inside."  Like him, you may find yourself feeling sick and tireo, but  the fact remains that it took  more than just looking at it to  complete the job. My sickness  left me after a night's sleep. I  might say to you men who can  not get a good night's sleep that  you might even be ahead of nye  and get two good things at once.  As I walked and talked with  these new builders, I saw labor  going as smoke goes. I saw cement mixed three to one for a  garden walk, when my own old  work���still in good shape���was  near and I remembered that it  was mixed eight to one. I have  the same mixtures in many of  the places here at Sunray.  I saw, spring and summer, cut  logs peeled in the bush ready  for that log cabin which is to  look as mine do. They were  cut in winter when the bark  had to be chewed off bit by bit,  leaving a reddish color with yellow markings���<alawys restfui  to the eye and mind.  One cannot put into words  what the eye sees in such work.  No two eyes see the same two  things. Some have gone back  to that labour they had given  up. Some changed that idea of  their dream home. At least-one  felt all rich inside.  So I just say to those who  may be interested to come and  see for themselves. And we  hope that you might see something which may help, you get  a better home, for remember,  home is just a step from Heaven .. . that place where Peace  on Earth must land first or not  at all.  So build a fit place for peace  and we may expect it in our  Lime.  "Your Western  Shopping  //  QUALITY  MERCANDISE  LOWER  PRICES  BETTER  SERVICE  GUARANTEED  DELIVERY  George   Siggers,   Correspondent  This will find its way a little  late, but a gala day such as we  had here May 25 should get  some mention.  The sports were held in the  morning, but we're sorry to say  without the help of the chap  with the straw hat. It seems  he was singing his way to fame  at that time. The crowning and  the official opening of our new  swimming pool was held at the  appointed times, thanks to the  weather man, who threatened us  with rain at noon, but held off.  There was a goodly crowd in  attendance, with Mr. C. P.  Browning giving the opening  address at the pool. This was  followed by swimming events  and some fancy diving. Actually  the pool was opened the evening before, when a bunch o|  spirited youths took the. plunge,  some with clothes and some not  as such. We might add a word  of warning here���Don't do any  soldier dives off the high board.  Ask Mr. Bacon���he knows.  After supper there was a good  ball   game   between   the   Mine  and Beach teams.  There was an  argument with every pitch, an  occurrence to be expected when  these two teams meet. The bq>^  from the Beach on 9-4, thanks  to the help of    Harvey    Rees'  home run with the bases loaded.  The dance as bigger and better than ever and Mr. Dunbar  and his committee deserve a lot  of credit for their time and the  work they put in.

By MAISIE DEVITT  I SAW a show the other night, called "Over Twenty-One"���with  Irene Dunn and Alexander Knox. I went to see it mainly because  I had read somewhere that it was one of two plays written about  that sparkling poet and famous wit, Dorothy Parker. Of which  Miss Parker is reported to have remarked bitterly, "And now I  suppose if I wrote a play about myself they'd sue for plagiarism."  Anyhow the picture won't walk off with any Oscars, although  to quote the inimitable Dorothy again, "the leading actors went  through the gamut of emotions���from A to B." However there  were a couple of speeches that did ring the bell. They describied  the kind of world that G.I. Joe expected to return to, when the  war was won. Well, G.I. Joe must be turning in his grave at the  recent happenings in the land of the free and the home of the  brave.  * * * *  Strikes���strikes���-strikes! And of course, the strikers are  always to blame. Despite the fact that the black market flourishes  like the green bay trees. Despite the fact that inflation is rife, even  in this our own country. Ask any housewife whether prices haven't  skyrocketed lately. I, for one, priced an article of furniture the  other day, and was told that it had gone up about seven dollars���  on a twenty-five dollar article���since April. Where are our price  controls? Echo answers "where"? And it isn't high wages that have  caused this inflation; because wages, in this country anyway,  just haven't kept pace.  That very model of a perfect president���Mr. Truman��� is about  to introduce a bill that is the direct opposite of democratic. This  legislation, if passed, will enable the government to draft men in  peacetime for government work. And would it stop there? Once  the wedge was, driven how long would it be before labor was  completely hog-tied and impotent? I sincerely hope that the  bill gets the ignominious defeat it deserves. I guess the fight has  really just begun for G.I. Joe in the sweet land of liberty.  * ��� ���     ' * * *  We had a cancer drive the other week. The public was being  educated about a cruel and insidious disease. Our leaders need a  little educating on the sarnie subject. Once more they are playing  the old game of complacency and appeasement. Too busy tilting  at the Russian bear to see the real tumor sending out its malignant  fungus spores. Franco and Fascist Spain, they say, are not a threat  to world peace. Once upon a time, there was a funny little man  :who^ranted and-JPavedJ. Nobody' took him seriously with his youth  movements arid pagan cults. That cartoon-faced little paperhanger  was nnt considered a threat to world peace���once.

The blaze  started by the new cemetery in  front of the home of Maynard  Dubois, and soon endangered  his home and garage, which latter was used as a fuel shed for  the camp. There was enough  gas and oil in it at the time to  cause a severe explosion. Mr.  L.
