 I-'  I ���  li  *5i?��R.  lowe So  A NEW British Columbia tourist and fishing resort is being  built by Ronald H. Stiles of Oakland, Calif,, in the mouth of  Howe Sound.  The establishment, is being  constructed on Worlcombe Island, one mile from Roger Curtis Point on the southwest corner  of Bowen Island.  This is one of the most scenic  and one of the best fishing  grounds of the owerBiC. coast.  Mr. Stiles has made arrangements with United Air Lines to  fly guests from California to  Vancouver. Here a fast speed  boat will-pick them up and take  them to the island.  Besides the main lodge, a  number of cottages will be built.  A boat will go with each estab-  lishment.  Mr. Stiles plans, to have it  ready by next summer. It will  accommodate 40 guests.

"Cairo", ex-.  S.S. Camosun, ex-S.S. Prince  Charles.   .  As the Camosun, the vessel  ended service on the Queen  Charlotte run just over a year  ago, was repaired and overhauled in Vancouver and sold  to a firm in Athens, Greece, by  Union Steamships.  She sailed from Vancouver in  early September of 1945, bound  for Tel Aviv, Palestine and  manned by Greek officers and  men.  Now, financed by the Jewish  underground movement, the ship  has been carrying. Jewish refugees froni Marseilles and Italian  ports to Haifa and has already  landed many hundreds of men,  women and children.  Built at Ayr, Scotland, in 1913,  she  was  used   in   trie  Orkney.

While here he was in charge of  the Grantham's water system.  Mr. and Mrs. Matthews of  Granthams nowon a tour of the  Xl.S.A. and eastern ; Canada  writes from the Bay of Fundy  that they get a thrill reading  the Coast News from cover to  cover and is keeping them in  touch with home.

JAMES Sinclair, Liberal member for Vancouver North, and  George Cruickshank (Lib-Fra-  ser Valley) put Veterans' Affairs Minister Ian MacKenzie  through a rigid cross-examination Thursday night in respect  to veterans' housing in Vancouver, and British Columbia generally.  Mr. Sinclair pointed out that  a new interpretation of "small  holdings" had been brought in  not by tne Veterans' Land Act  branch or the Department of  Veterans' Affairs, but by the  Minister of Reconstruction and  Supply, which would prevent  Vancouver veterans interested  in small holdings locating in  North Vancouver or Burnaby.  This recent regulation how limited small holdings to communities of less than 5000 or more  han 15 miles from a metropolitan area.  Mr. MacKenzie promised that  the matter would be fully considered and he would do all he  could to present Mr. Sinclair's  views to his colleagues.  "For the minister to tell me  in his present manner that the  matter is under consideration is  not- good enough," persisted Mr.  Sinclair.  TO DISCUSS SITUATION  "Why "was the change made?  As a Vancouver member I would  like to know just where these  veterans . with small industrial  jobs in Vancouver are to settle  if not in North Vancouver and  Burnaby."  The minister said he was taking note of, "my friend's representation and I shall discuss it  (Continued on Page 3)  PORT   MELLON���Sunday   was  a big day for Port Mellon  with two fastball games and a  life saving demonstration by the  Royal Life Saving Society.  The first game with Squamish with Ernie Hume pitching  was an easy victory for us. The  score  11-1  for Port Mellon.  The feature game was in the  evening against McGavin's Bakery boys. The game was a close  one with no runs till the sixth  inning When Ken Hall made a  run for Port Mellon. In the  seventh inning McGavins scored one run.  The score ran the same to the  end. Overtime was played with  Port Mellon scoring, giving us  the game 2-1.  McGavins will be back on  Labour Day and they say "It  will be a different story". Who  knows?

The B. C. Products and Industrial Bureau, co-operating  with the Department of Education, recently launched the educational project to combat the  impression among young people  that they must 'go away" to find  suitable jobs. Selecting canning, weaving and other industries for study, the bureau invited various companies to prepare stories and illustrations of  occupational opportunities in  their fields.  PATTERN IN UNIFORM  The story pattern has been  well defined for all studies. Emphasizing operations and minimizing pictures of machines and  plant, a collection of photographs has been made of all  operations of companies in each  field. Commentaries are written  for the pictures, which are made  into halftones and 35 mm. slide  strips. The commentaries are  illustrated and prepared for insertion in school notebooks.  Copies of the film are routed  by the Department of Education  among all schools with projection equipment.  Company names were not excluded from the studies where  such names appear naturally in  plants. For the companies contributing studies, the series for  the first time provides complete  records of operations^ CbpiesYof  the illustrated commentary an<i  film are being used for various/  promotional purposes;" Iri %df  dition, each company can use^  the material to.show employees  the importance of their individual jobs in the over-all industry operations.

The letter had  to be written to catch the mail  that day but still we sat���just  couldn't think of a thing to say  ���thoughts were in a muddle. I  feel sort of that way today. I  have a large selection of varied  recipes, but at first glance I  notice "tbo much shortening, too  much sugar, or other items hard  to get. I glance again and see  that some of the recipes I have  before me serve 6, 8 and 10  people. ... The majority of the  recipes in quantity can very  easily be cut down for two or  three people. How, said a young  bride to me recently, can I cut  down a recipe suitable for two  people when it cals for only one  egg- Easiest thing in the world .  sez I. Beat the egg and then  measure out the amount required leaving the remainder  for some other recipe you are  about to use. "Hum! Never  thought of that," she said.( Here  is a versatile cake recipe you  will all want to make a note of.  CAKE RECIPE  Cream 3 tbsp. shortening and  beat with it the yolk of one egg,  add either 2 tbsp. sugar or Yz  cup corn syrup, one cupful of  sweet milk, sift in 1 heaping  cupful of flour and 2Vz tbsp.  baking powder, and % tsp. salt.  Lastly stir in the stiffly beaten ���  white of the egg, and 1 tsp. vanilla. Now that you have the  cake here are a few excellent  uses for it. When rhubarb is .in  season it's rhubarb shortcake,  and during the berry season its  berry shortcake. When you no  longer have fresh fruit, use can- Y  hed fruit. I like it myself smothered in apple sauce from the  early fall apples with plenty  of cinnamon, or cloves in the  sauce. With maple syrup on the  shelves again use it as a maple  syrup puddingi A caramel sauce  goes nicely with it. Caramelize  I tbsp. sugar, then add salt and  % cup water and 1 cup milk.  Thicken with a well-beaten egg  and 1 level tsp, of cornstarch,  bring to a boil and add vanilla  and a lot of butter. When well-  cooked pour over the cake. If  you wish a hot dessert, cut cake  into individual servings;, set a  marshmallow or a small piece  of chocolate bar on top of each  serving letting it melt in the hot  oven and you have a lovely topping. If your cake becomes stale  before it is all eaten up, then  break it into smal pieces in a  casserole and pour either chocolate or plain custard over it.  Dotted with the stiffly-beaten  white of an egg, it is ready in  about 15 minutes to serve hot or  cold with or without cream.

Vegetables  are healthful and economical.  Of course they call for care as  to color combinations and flavor contrasts but are simple to  prepare for al that. A colorful  combination is made up of finely diced or grated carrots  sprinkled over cauliflower.  Green peas, combined with diced white turnips, look very  tempting and taste good. Peas  when cooked or canned can be  put into baked acorn' squash  halves, melted butter poured  over both and a half squash for  each person.  VEGETABLE PIE  1 cup diced carrots, 1 cup  cauliflower,. 2 cups well . seasoned white sauce, xk cup grated  cheese, 1 cup peas or string  beans. Left-over vegetables may  be used in this recipe if desired.  Place them in casserole, cover  with white sauce and grated  cheese. The addition of a mashed potato crust makes this into  a delicious one-dish vegetable  luncheon or dinner. Bake in a  hot oven 400 degrees F.  STUFFED TOMATOES  Six medium sized tomatoes, Vz  tbsp. finely chopped onion, Vz  cup finely chopped cooked  chicken or other left-over cooked meat, 2 tbsp. mild flavored  fat, Vz cup soft, stale bread  crumbs, salt and pepper, 1 egg  slightly beaten, buttered cracker  or bread crumbs. Wipe and remove thin slice from stem end  of tomatoes. Take out seeds  and pulp and drain off most of  the liquid.   Sprinkle with salt,  invert, let stand 30 minutes or  longer. Cook onion and butter  five minutes. Add chopped meat,  bread crumbs, pulp from tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste.  Place in greased pan, sprinkle  with buttered crumbs, and bake  20 minutes in hot oven 400 degrees F. If you wish to serve  stuffed tomatoes cold, just mix  up left-over vegetables plus cold  cooked" meat or chicken, mix  with it your favorite salad dressing. Return this mixture to the  tomato and top with finely  chopped hard boiled egg and  parsley adding a stuffed green  olive if you" wish.  CANNED  TOMATO   JUICE  Wash tomatoes, remove stem  end, cut into small pieces and  boil five minutes in a covered  kettle. Press thru a sieve keeping the kettle on the stove so  the juice will be kept hot. Bring  juice to boiling point and quickly pour into clean hot sealers  and Vz inch of vacuum type. Add  % tsp. salt to each pint of juice.  Partially seal screw and spring  tops, but completely seal vacuum type. Process both pint  and quart sealers for 20 minutes in the boiling water bath.  Remove from water immediately, complete seal on screw and  spring top sealers, cool in an  upright position. Label and  store.  BREAD AND BUTTER  PICKLES  Cut cucumbers in very thin  slices, do not peel; measure 1  quart sliced cucumbers, add six  small onions, peeled and sliced.  Sprinkle with salt and let stand  one hour. Drain and add 1 cup  vinegar, Wz cups sugar, 1 tsp.  celery seed, 1 tsp. tumeric powder, Vz tsp. powdered cinnamon,  2 sweet peppers chopped. Boil 20  minutes and bottle while hot.  VET'S HOUSING  (Continued from Front Page)  with the minister of reconstruction at the earliest possible moment."  Mr. Cruickshank wanted to  know why homes now erected  in the Fraser valley were not  available for sale to veterans,  and why veterans were not al  lowed to buy Japanese farms,  homes or individual holdings in  the Fraser Valley.  An official of the V.L.A. in  Vancouver said the act "is definitely rural."  "We seek acreage for the veteran in a rural' area where the  taxes can easily be paid.  "The whole argument seems  to centre around the fact that  veterans want small holdings in  urban areas and the act does not  allow that."  r  *fohn Catfanaeh  GIBSONS LANDING  At Your Service for  ROOFING ��� RUMPUS ROOMS  REPAIRS  REMODELING ��� REBUILDING  EAVES TROUGHS INSTALLED  Scales are the only things that  lend real weight to most fish  stories.���Guelph Mercury.

[onty  TEXADA NARRATIVES  .FIELD Marshal Viscount Montgomery is to be  given a civic reception by the city of Halifax  on August 31.   He has specifically requested  that  the  functions  be   limited   to   men  only.  Women will be barred from all receptions and  from the  official  luncheon.  Now this is what one might describe as an  exceedingly   strange   thing.    Just   why   does  Monty want no women?  It is simply unbelievable that he does not  like them. For everybody likes women. Who  could help it?  The only possible alternative is that he is  afraid of them.  And that is stranger still.  Fear, of course, sometimes follows a weird  pattern. The great hulking elephant is said to  be terrified of a mouse. Are we to believe that  Field Marshal Montgomery is subject to the  same kind of neurosis?  Are we to conclude that the hero of a dozen  vital battlefields is actually frightened of a  skirt?  Stop This Nonsense  NEVER has this country occupied so exalted  a position in the family of nations.   When  Canada speaks, the world listens.  With our increased stature has come increased responsibilities, and we have assumed  them gladly. We played no small part in the  winning of the war, and we are prepared to  do our utmost to stamp out the aftermaths  of that war, plague, pestilence and famine.  To operate efficiently, however, we must  first do a little mending of homes fences.  Canada is a young nation, and there is no  room here for the idler and the parasite. Under  our present system, however, we have become  more vulnrable to the attacks of these burdens  on our economy than in any other country in  the world. /  As long as the unemployment legislation of  today continues in effect we shall have thousands of our people living on the public, while  thousands of jobs go begging. Because a man  may no longer be impressed into other than  so-called "suitable employment" he may draw  out-of-work benefits with the greatest of ease,  and  the   taxpayers  lose  another  round.  The clerk turned gunsmith is now a gunsmith  under the Act, and a salesman turned mechanic  is now a mechanic. Our ordnance plants close  down. There is no call for their war-developed  abilities���no "suitable employment" can be  found. Other lines of industry may be crippled  for lack of labor, but these two men may claim  and receive government funds to subsidize their  leisure.  A funny situation���funnily peculiar, that is.  We don't want drones in Canada. It is time to  correct this "suitable employment" nonsense.  ���Kelowna Courier.  Sundials  THE experiment of a German firm in manufacturing pocket sundials as a substitute for  watches is likely to arouse interest in other  countries, including Britain, where watches are  in short supply. Considered as a substitute, the  sundial has certain obvious merits���it neither  gains nor loses, it has no works to speak of,  and recommends itself to the absent-minded by  waiving the ritual of nightly winding. On the  other hand, as it so often candidly admits, it  records only the sunny hours.  There seems no way of overcoming that disadvantage. The British in particular, whose  climate is notoriously capricious, will perhaps  for that reason be inclined to regard the dial,  as Touchstone did, with a "lack-lustre eye."  At a pinch the Briton may prefer to fall back  on the famous advice once offered to his grandparents, and remember that:  Ev'ry member of the force  Has a watch and chain, of course;  If you want to know the time,  Ask a P'liceman!  And then, of course, with sundials there  would be the plaguy nuisance of adding or  subtracting for daylight saving���and never  knowing which was right.  Spain has developed a train which takes  curves at 80 miles an hour, like Franco reorienting himself politically.  WHILE infantile paralysis is causing widespread alarm in other parts of the continent,  there have been no recent new cases in British  Columbia and only three in the province since  the beginning of the year.  However,   the   provincial   board   of   health  warns parents to keep in mind these points:  Good sanitation is the best means of prevention known at present.  Flies may carry the disease.   Keep them out  of the house.  Garbage brings flies.   Dispose of it promptly  so that flies cannot breed in it.  Proper sewage disposal is essential.  Avoid swimming in water that may be polluted.  Avoid over-exertion and extreme fatigue.  Pay strict attention to personal hygiene.  If possible, avoid tonsil and adenoid operations during epidemics.

Another group of names includes those of the mining men  who came for varying lengths  of time, but who left an indelible mark. Outstanding among  these was Harry W. Treat, New  York capitalist." Others were  Edward Blewett, Thomas Kiddie, W. Hewitt, Dr. Tanzer, Mr.  Eastman and J. Findlay.  Old-timers never lost connections with two men who came  to Van Anda during their early  training years and who left to  make paths of their own in British Columbia. These were the  late W. E.

LOSSES caused by late blight  can Tae reduced in the tubers  by giving attention to harvesting and storage.   In July late  blight attacked some of the potato tops in some of the coastal  areas of British Columbia, and  if  care  is   not  taken  the   late  blight  fungus may invade the  tubers causing either a dry' or  wet rot.   In affected fields, delay   digging   until   about   two  weeks after the tops are completely  dead.   If weather  conditions do not permit this delay  the   vine  may   be   killed  prematurely   with   a   weed   killer.  Every effort should be made to  dig the potatoes for a couple of  weeks   and   allowing   to  sweat  helps them to recognize slightly  diseased  tubers  not  noticeable  at time of digging.   Discarding  of these affected tubers  assists  in  helping  to   prevent  further  rotting in storage.  The affected potato tops  should not be used as a cover  when pitting. The tops should  be either destroyed or placed in  a compost. In late attacks of  blight when straying has not  been practised, the cutting and  destruction of the tops has been  productive of good results.  Spraying the surface of the soil  with bordeau 4-4-40 or copper  sulphate, 10 pounds per 50 gallons of water, will lessen the  amount of rot eevn though the  foliage has not been protected.  The spread of dry rot in affected tubers can be greatly retarded by storage in a cool, dry  cellar or root room. Moisture  and high temperature in storage favour the spread of the  rot. The rot makes little progress at temperatures of 40 degrees F; of under.       \y :..'.^:,'Y.:;',,':  Late blight is effectively controlled by spraying and some  good results have been obtained  by dusting. The sprays and  dusts, however, must be efficiently applied, that is, covering the plants thoroughly especially the lower leaves and the  under sides of all the leaves.  Spray with bordeaux 4-4-40 or  other copper containing spray  beginning when the plants are  six inches high, at 10-day1;o two  week intervals, more often in  wet weather.

It is fact which  makes housing the Canadian  problem of the hour. Yet curiously enough it is the only fact  which can be firmly seized in  any search for a solution.  Housing is a statistician's  nightmare. What passes for fact  is usually somebody's guess.  Sometimes it is an intelligent  estimate. Sometimes it is a wild  stab in the dark. And sometimes the latter is closer to the  mark than the former.  What is the effective demand  for housing today? How many  houses will be built this year?  The estimates fun all the way  from 60,000 to 100,000. ,, But  those who make these estimates  enter this caveat: Many of the  houses started this year will not  be completed.  How many will fall into this  category? It will depend, upon  the eradication of bottle-necks,  for one thing. It will depend  upon the volume of commercial  and industrial construction, for  another. It will depend upon  the type of commercial and industrial' construction that approaches completion first. A  new hotel, if it can get the ma-  T R GODFREY  AND COMPANY LTD.  ^IBSON^TANmNG^  General Trucking  and Fuel  terial, would use enough soil  pipe and plumbing fixtures to  supply 300 houses. But if it cannot get these materials, its construction is halted half way.  COMPLEX PROBLEM  But why not ban the construction of all but essential  housing? That is so complex a  problem that the government  threw up its hands and passed  the responsibility back to the  municipalities.  If commercial and industrial  construction are left aside���a  large "if"--the reason for this  can be summed up as follows:  There has been a greater number of houses put under construction this year than in any  year in Canadian history.  ���: Last year we built 47,000 units  of housing. The average for all  the years from 1924 to 1939 was  32,000 a year. In the peak year,  1928, we built 52,000 units. This  year something between 60,000  and 100,000 units wil be put under construction.  Despite the fact that production of all the component parts  for houses is breaking records,  there are serious bottle-necks  which is holding up completions.' These are: window glass  (which comes in the main from  Belgium), electric wiring, and  plumbing fixtures, soil pipe,  finishing lumber, plywood and  doors, some hardware, cement  in some localities, and widespread local shortages in particular items and particular trades.  APPOINTMENT  Mr. T. F. Flahiff was named  director general of housing last  month. His job will be to catalogue the bottlenecks according  to importance and then do something about them. *  In many cases an expansion  of productive capacity will be  required and that.will be ordered.

But many bottle-necks are international. If we could get a  couple of ship-loads of Belgian  window glass it would work  wonders. But the bomb blasted  cities of Europe are crying for  glass and their need is greater  than ours. Some flat glass is  produced in Canada and it may  be that this production can be  expanded.  Hardwood flooring is one of  the most serious shortages. Much  of it came from the United  States and is no longer available.  The lumber strike hit housing  a heavy blow. A shortage of  plywood already existed and is  now much worse. That is reflected in shortages of doors.  Seasoned lumber for finished  trim and cupboards is another  major headache to builders.

Home Oil  ; Products  By MAISIE DEVITT  THE passing of the distinguished writer H. G. Wells will be much  felt in the world of letters. Unlike most prolific writers, _he  never lowered his Standards, and never stooped to the production  of the lucrative pot-boiler. His novels I found ever entertaining  ,and thought-provoking, but must admit that, even with my penchant for dull scholarly tomes, I never could wade through his famous "Outline of History". Years ago I saw a movie called "Things  To Come". It was a fantastic' thing based on a Wells novel. I  remember that after many wars, and a dread epidemic, a remnant  of humanity survived and built up a new progressive world on the  ashes of the old. A world wherein the wonderful discoveries of  science were used to benefit humanity rather than destroy it.  Utterly fantastic and unthinkable of course. It should have been  titled "Things That Couldn't Happen".  I am reminded of a story about ah English chorus girl Who was  invited to a New York literary tea. She was very much the fish  out of water until somebody mentioned H. G. Wells. With a superior smile she remarked, "Oh, we don"t think much of Wells in  ^England". "Who's we?" queried her suffering escort. "Mother  and I," she replied.  In the seventeenth century, Cyrano de Bergerac wrote his  fanciful "Travels to the Sun and the Moon". Reading it today one  is astonished at his description of modern inventions. Perhaps at  some dim, future date H. G. Wells will be likewise acclaimed as a  visionary and true prophet���who knows?  From a writer of weird and wonderful tales to the antics of  my infant child isn't as wide a gap as you might imagine. Aloysius  at the tender age of 28 months begins to assert his little personality. He has an idea that the world is his oyster, and so far nobody  has bothered to disillusion him. The other day after a shopping  expedition to Cranberry his quota of loot was as follows:  Two circulars cajoled from postmaster Jimmy, one, weiner  coaxed from Butcher Smith, two meat tokens (feloniously come by  I fear) and a bright shiny penny. The last item being a donation  from Ed# Ahola whose small son had come in to beg Daddy for  popsicle ��� money. Reaching in his pocket for the nickel Ed looked  down and discovered two dimpled hands outstretched, and another  pair of trusting blue eyes gazing expectantly. Pure blackmail, I  calls it.  Neither do I believe my angel is as guileless as he appears.  '' Some of his remarks, are, to my mind, distinctly sarcastic. The  other day for instance, he lost one of his running shoes in the  jungle of weeds at the bottom of Daddy's potato patch. I couldn't  find it, but Harry finally discovered it after much hoeing and  raking. YThen; suffering perhaps: a pang of conscience^ he continued clearing up the patch, while Aloysius watched incredulously.  "More shoes, Daddy?" he inquired.  Speaking of kids, Alec Townsend tells one on a Willow Street  moppet. Alec, accompanied by a friend, was trundling his trusty  'wheel chair along, one sunny afternoon, when a little miss wandered out of her yard and eyed the wheel chair with much curiosity,  "What's that?" she inquired, pointing a chubby finger. "Oh that's  my baby," replied the friend, with a wink at Alec, "What do you  think of him?" The moppet's lip curled, "He sure is ah awful big  baby to still be riding in a buggy," she remarked disdainfully.  HALF MOON BAY  MRS. R.

Now that the Cormack Hall  is no longer available, arrangements have been made for the  Pacific Mobile Movies to put on  its weekly shows in,the hall at  Redroofs.  Les  Peterson,  Correspondent  A small B.C. Airlines seaplane  again passed Sunday at Gibsons  making the less stolid citizenry  airborne for the trifling emolument of four pesos per persons  per trip. Small sizes rose for  half fair. Although the school  of thought which maintains that  a flag-pole contributes an equally good view has gained some  favour, its arguments fall when  confronted with the fact that  there is more motion to the  plane, especially on still days.  Anyway, survivors say that the  sail was worth the kale.  * *    *  One of the slickest pleasure  boats of its class tov grace our  harbour arrived here Saturday  on its maiden voyage from Vancouver. It is the 34-ft., Shal-  O-Mar. Although containing a  host of gadgets to add to the  comforts of boating there is  ample living space aboard for  the six persons who arrived on  it. Its owner, Joe Lister, has  finished the interior in mahogany, and has done a very fine  job.  * *    *  Over heard in Carson-Peterson cafe���One hamburger with  soft ice-cream!  Although at the present time  the fish have not arrived, when  they do there will be ample  facilities here to receive them.  To date the bay is dotted with  camps of B.C. Packers, J. H.  Todd, Western Fish, and Francis Millerd and Co., and Humphries has a collector equipped to  buy. If the anticipated sockeyes  run does arrive there will be  plenty for all. Many boats are  already fishing here, but so far  have not' made large catches.  * *    *  Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Hopper,  of Winnipeg, are. visiting Mrs. T.  C.YRoss.

The prairie  family stated that they found  B.C. warmer than Alberta this  summer.  Speaking of mixed metaphors,  there's the one which describes  a road hog as a dog in the manger.���Toronto Star.
