THE STORY���  On Monday, Sept. 23rd, Mrs.  Bear walks quite serenely into  the cold deck operations. She  surveyed the outfit-for a while,  then walked over to Teddy Osborne who stood there with his  mouth open and a.silly grin on  his face, thinking what a nice  tame bear for a mascot! So he  proceeds to throw her some food  (sandwiches); she crunched  these, hungrily eyeing Teddy  some more, she started getting  closer���all the whilefthe donkey puneheri Harry Harrison,  was niaking ^hectic noises to  scare her away but to no avail.

Then Mrs. Bear  picked up Teddy Osborne's  lunch kit ^by the handle and  walked away with it in her  mouth ���the kit swaying from  side to side. A few feet away  she stopped and proceeded to  open the kit by putting her foot  on it and ripping it open. She  devoured the contents (this  must have been a tasty morsel);  she started, back after Teddy  who had the other lunch kits.  He put them down, then when  Mrs. Bear was only a few feet  away he thought he'd better go;  so dashed madly through the  woods, exceeding ally speed lim-  itsyand passing everyone on the  *F  Vol. 2 ��� No.^L  HALF MOON BAY, B.

Bear  SECHELT  ���   Fred   Mills   and  Wally Edwards, employees of  B.C.- Power Commission "'here,  had an exciting bear chase recently when they met a bear as  they were driving along in the  truck on the main road near  Roberts Greek community hall.  The animal ran ahead of the  truck for some distance and the  boys gavev chase with visions of  nabbing a nice steak, grease for  the hair, and perhaps a luxurious  rug to boot; ��� ? TheYbear= kept its  ��lead well, "it's hind feet reaching up behind its ears as it  gained momentum. We think it  got up to about 30 miles an  hour before it suddenly smartened up enough to leave the  road."  It is not known how Fred and  Wally planned to handle the  bear if they caught up with.it.  You have three guesses.  enews  THE COLUMBIA Coast Mission  will continue to own and operate St. Mary's Hospital, Pender Harbour. The hospital can  be reached by the highway  along the Peninsula, and the  Medical Superintendent of the  Hospital is Dr. Warriner. Mr.  J. C. Burgess is the Hospital  Administrator.  .

BRING ON  THE OYSTERS  WITH the coming of September the thoughts of the gourmet turn to the succulent oyster, it being a general rule that  oysters are good eating only  during the months containing  the letter "r". There is a scientific reason for this apparently,  according to the nature resources department of the Canadian National Railways. In  tests carried out at the Atlantic  biological station of the Fisher-  ut��elion6w^  '--*-"- President, ments snow^ that with the coming of warm weather in the late  spring, the oyster loses some of  its fatness, and during the season of warm weather the oyster  is busy spawning and later storing up reserve food. With the  coming of the faOl months, the  oyster has accumulated his reserve stock of food and gets  ready for hibernation, which  continues until the spring.   -  F; Archer Heads  SECHELT. ��� At    the    annual  gating of the Sechelt United  sfits --Teachers     Association  Contracts  per month; man and wife, $3.00  per month; man, wife and family, $4.00 per month.

A hot lunch proj ect for the  Sechelt schbol was discussed and  a committee was chosen to look  further into this matter.  An interestirig point brought  out at the meeting is that  through the efforts of the P.T.A.  the school bus makes a second  trip to pick up Selma Park children "that have had to walk to  school for the .past -two terms.  There are a lot more problems  that the P.T.A. can attack, but  we need more support and more  members. So lets see a lot more  parents at our next meeting.

Joseph George McDonald  about 50, wife of a caretaker  at Cowan's Point, Bowen Island,  was accidentally shot in the  back at midnight, Friday, ��� a  short distance from Seymour  Landing, near her home.  According to North Vancouver Provincial Police, Mrs. McDonald and her husband were  making their midnight check of  property in the .v area around  Double Ridge Mountain.  Mr. McDonald was following  his'wife througlr the dark trail,  carrying a loaded .22 rifle and  a flashlight.  He stumbled over a log on  the trail, and the rifle went  off, shooting his wife in the  back, police said.  Caretakers at Mrs. B. T. Rogers and Mrs. Ernest Rogers'  homes in Cowan's Point helped  McDonald bring his wife from  the Point to Snug Cove, Bowen  Island, in a truck.  Union Steamship policeman  Geo. Ault contacted Thomas D.  White, owner of the Sannie  Ferry, at 1 a.m. He took the  wounded woman to Horseshoe  Bay from where she was taken  to North Vancouver General  Hospital by ambulance.

Floatins Ladder; Anchor  Pose Mystery for Pastors  ^ABOUT,six:weeks ago, -the Mis-  'f ^ilbn   Ship��� tfohn   Antle   was  passing White Islet 6ff Sechelt  southbound. A large ladder lay  ;-on our course with ifs upper,  end bobbing straight up and  down. It intrigued all of us, so  we drew alongside and hefan  to hoist it ahoard. It was a well  made, affair jvith JSat steps and  painted white. We^worid^ed  why it was soAheayy,: yan$ kept  on hauling oh% rope that hung  laway down belowit, with^ome-  thing mighty heavy attached Yto  it. YFinally an, iron winch came ,  to the surface! s6 we hauleld  that aboard too.   We were al  most afraid to keep on hauln  lest a corpse prove, to be the  ; anchor��^and^ were ^ite relieved  when theYwinch appeared.  Now, how on earth did that  ladder with its heavy anchor  get -out there; twoyathiles orl  shore? What had the ladder  and the winch been used for,  and how far had they drifted?  If: it had been used on a shore  job, how did, it get but to sea -  with such an anchor and an**  chor line?  ^Perhaps there's a very simple  ansyfer;ybut:frankly the crew of  of the" John Ahtle can't frame  one that seems to fit the facts.

SKY AND sea were slate grey  Saturday morning but the  spirit of high-adventure ran  strong in the heart of 81-year-  old Rev. John Antle as he set  sail with a two-girl crew for a  10,000-mile voyage in the two-  masted yawl "Reverie".  They cast off from the Coal  Harbor jetty of the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club for a journey that will take them "about  a year".  With two girls for crew, Mr.  Antle plans to sail his 40-foot  yacht down the coast of the  U. S., through the Panama  Canal to the Indies, and northward to New York. From New  York they likely will go to  Newfoundland where the seagoing clergyman was born.  The two girls are Lucy Varty,  19, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  T. N. Varty of 2410 Point Grey  and Audrey Sherlock, 20, whose  parents live at 2621 West Eleventh.  EXPERIENCED SAILORS  Both giris,  according  to  the  p'a^^^ihave beexi sailors since  they-werebig enough to hold a  .tiller.  Mr. Antle is a retired clergyman of the Church of England,  a pioneer in work of the Columbia Coast Mission in B. C, *md  an experienced sailor and navigator.  He brought the "Reverie", a  40-ton yawl with canvas and a  small auxiliary, from England  in 1940 when submarines were  out on the first campaign  against Atlantic shipping. He  brought the little ship into Vic  toria harbor after 13 months of  travel, a 10,000-mile voyage  that took him to Africa and  through the Panama.  He was broke when he  leached William Head off Victoria but in the six years since  has accumulated enough cash  from his church pension to embark on another adventure in  his eighty-first year.  The    two    girls    are   unpaid  crew   and   will   provide   their  own expenses  other than food  on board.  "IN GOOD HANDS"  Lucy Varty's mother is confident that her daughter is "iri  good hands" and pleased that  the girl is able to go on the voyage.  'She is capable o? handling  the boat if necessary," said Mrs.  Varty. "She has been keen on  the sea since she was old enough  to walk. We couldn't have kept  her way from it. She has owned several sailboats and did a  lot of racing. The comet class  "Trident" of the Kitsilano Yacht  Club is Lucy's boat.  Audrey Sherlock; whose fathf-  er, Gerald W- Sherlocke, ihan-  ages a drug store at Abbott ari#  Hastings, is a lifelong friend of  Lucy, and is an enthusiastic  sailor, or as her mother says,  "has been hanging around the  waterfront for the last 10 years."  She owned a small sailboat  for four years but has never  sailed beyond Bowen island.  Last spring, after finishing her  second year at University, she  sold her boat and went to Los  Angeles -on holiday. Page Two  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.

C. - Phone 230  IT IS AN AXIOM in public  health that to prevent the  spread of communicable disease  the contact of infected with non-  infected persons must be prevented. This is true in the case  of tuberculosis, of diphtheria  and of smallpox.  "It is also true of venereal  disease in spite of the fact that  some highly trained medical  leaders would have us believe  that venereal disease is in a  completely different category  because sex is involved," writes  Dr. Gordon Bates in an article  in a recent issue of the magazine "Health," official publication of the Health League of  Canada.  Dr. Bates intimated it was  evident in this connection that  some public health authorities  considered that questions of  morals were none of their business.  "These quasi-experts fail to  observe in their pronouncements  that no normal woman with a  decent education wants to be a  prostitute or to be promiscuous,"  writes Dr. Bates. "It is equally  true that no young man who has  a proper conception of the history  of advancing civilization and its  connection with romantic love  wants to be promiscuous if a  normal marriage is possible for  him at a normal age���or indeed,  wants to be promiscuous at all.  "Such lessons are not learned  by observing test tube reactions  or peering through a microscope  ���but they must be learned before the scourge of venereal disease .can be^'controlledvmh ^ -   -���������'-  "It has been unfashionable to  discuss venereal disease in  terms of morality, yet without  morality in the true sense affecting both conduct and social conditions, venereal disease cannot  be controlled."  Dr. Bates thinks any thoughtful person must recognize the  fact that the venereal diseases  arise from abnormal relationship  outside of marriage and that  these arise from factors influencing conduct.  "Yet it is obvious that many  people who ought to know better' have taken the view that  mere education as to the facts  of venereal disease and the provisions of facilities for diagnosis  and treatment are sufficient to  control venereal disease.  "Another group it would seem  have emphasized the value of  disseminating information as to  the physical facts of sex almost  as though this type of education  alone would control gonorrhoea  and syphilis.  "This kind of education has  been so over-emphasized as to  suggest to some leading educators that the term sex education  should be abandoned altogether  for a title which would more  accurately describe a broad program of education needed to  guide human beings in the matter of rational sex behavior.  "It should be evident that if  the control of venereal disease  is to rest entirely on instruction  as to the facts of venereal disease (including,a liberal dose of  instruction as to the terrors of  venereal disease) then education  qjf this kind plus increasing  efficiency of treatment may result -only in the shortening of  the duration of the individual  case. The omission of moral and  |ocial controls may result in an  increased contact rate and hence  more-eases."  Dr. Bates reviews reports  which indicate that in North  America venereal diseases are  on the increase���"in, the face of  L.

Sometimes You Win,  Sometimes You Lose  THE DEPARTMENT of Veteran's Affairs likes to hear how  veterans who are being assisted  in their re-establishment ventures are getting along. Especially welcome are the letters  which tell of- veterans finally  becoming self-supporting and  no longer needing D.V.A. help.  Last spring one ex-serviceman  went placer mining in the Yukon. He applied for and was  granted awaiting returns allowances.  A few days ago he sent in  his regular monthly return, informing D.V.A. that he was  winding up his operations for  the season, and requesting that  his awaiting returns grant be  terminated.  He wrote in part: "I have  almost ready for shipment approximately $14,250 worth of  gold, so that while it has not  been a very successful season,  I shall be able tb settle rny bills  and get^along without, the much,  appreciated awaiting returns  benefit for my personal expenses."

A ruling as to what constitutes a working  day is being obtained for a second sally against  the resourceful cafe owner.  FERRY TALE' ...  Youngsters, even of the ; kindergarten age,  don't let a thing go by them these days.  In Kelowna last week, one of the Sisters at  the local kindergarten school was telling the  children a fairy story, and at the conclusion  of the tale she asked the class if any of them  knew a fairy.  "I do," said the little voice. "There's one  that goes across the lake every day."  A "HATS OFF" with a double heft is due  the Pender Harbour-Howe Sound Taxi and  Truckers' Association this week, for its consistent efforts toward better roads for the  peninsula area. This week two members made  another trip to Victoria to try to pry some  action from a harassed public works department.  While it is understandable that the department may not be in a position to do immediate  work, it is also understandable that the patience  of the taxpayers is nearing its limit. For years  and years before war upset the general routine, roads in this area were something akin  to a three-ring circus or an auction sale, with  promises flung around like money in a beer-  parlour. "We're a little tired of surveys, investigations, and promises, and we'd like to be sure  that the minute the department gets a go-  ahead signal, we'll be somewhere near the top  of the list.  It might be said that the members of the  PHHSTT Association have a selfish interest  in their efforts. True, to a degree. But good  roads have a benefit for the district which is  far from confined to any one small circle. And  these men are working for that benefit just as  much, or more, than they are for their own.  Good roads bring more residents, more business. In turn these tend to increase the tempo  of improvements and to stabilize taxes.  Roads are something like Mark Twain's  weather. Everybody talks about them, few do  anything about them. To these men who, at  their own expense in time and money, are  making these efforts to improve our transportation system, should go every support. Letters  to this paper will help. Personal suggestions  to the Association, for its use when a department of public works official comes, will help.  Most of all, besiege your member in the Legislature with letters. These are valuable ammunition for him to have in his hand when he  makes his representations to government officials. r  Squamish Elks  Celebrate  Coming of Age  IT WAS JUST 21 years ago on  Saturday evening last that  Squamish Lodge No. 119, B.P.O.  Elks was born, and on Saturday  evening to celebrate its majority a very pleasant time was  spent by some fifty-odd members when the district deputy  grand exalted ruler, Bro. Don  Currie of North Vancouver; the  exalted ruler, Bro. Tommy Warren of North Vancouver Lodge  No. 43 and about 15 other officers and members of North Vancouver and lodges of the lower  mainland came to Squamish on  a special launch to help celebrate the. occasion. ���     y  North Vancouver Elks Lodge  No. 43 was the lodge who came  to Squamish 21 years ago to  institute this lodge, so it was  only fitting that they should be  invited to return to help celebrate this coming of age.  The secretary read the minutes of the meeting on the night  of institution held on Sepem-  ber 26th, 1925, when 15 members  were initiated and made charter  members of the lodge. Only two  of the original charter members  remain, many having passed on  or moved away, the two remaining are Bros. Alex. Munro  and Jack Castle; unfortunately  Bro. Alex, was not' able to ;be  present at the celebration.  During the evening the officers elected for the ensuing  year were duly and regularly  installed by the district deputy  grand exalted ruler, Bro. Don  Currie of North Vancouver, as  follows: Exalted Riiler, Bro.  Geo. Nesbitt; Past Exalted  Ruler, Bro. Tom Clarke; Leading Knight, Bro. Joe Mulhern;  Loyal Knight, Bro. Ed. Antosh;  Lecturing   Knight,   Bro.    Russ  Lamport; Treasurer, Bro. Stan  ���.. ^Clarke; Secretary, ,Bro. i. Jack  fcastleT Inner GuarHf BroT Geo.  -, Turnquist; YTyler, Bro. C.; B.  Smith; Trustee, Bro. Bob Slack;  Esquire, Bro, Wm. Gedge; Chaplain, Bro. Walter Harvey; organist, Bro. Rube Stockman.  Immediate Past Exalted Ruler  Bro. Tom Clarke was presented  with a Past Exalted Ruler's  Jewel from the lodge.  After^ the lodge session a short  humorous play was put on by  four members of Squamish lodge  which was received with much  enjoyment and applause. Bro.  Ed. Antosh made a most attractive lady, while Bros. Geo. Nesbitt as a salesman, Carl Smith  as a government inspector, and  Buss Downer as the dutiful husband all received a good hand.  To top the evening off a! lovely  chicken dinner with all the trimmings and peach shortcake,  catered by our old friend John  Hurrest and the new Del Mar  Cafe was really appreciated and  enjoyed by some 70 members  and visitors.  Many interesting speeches  brought the gathering to a close  in the wee small hours of the  morning, one which Will long  be remembered, especially the  visitors who had some boat,  ' trouble and were some time try-"  ing to get out of the whirlpool  they got into in the sound. A  sincere expression of gratitude  and appreciation was tendered  to Joe Bundy of Woodfibre who  came to their timely assistance  and rescue with his launch, but  all's well that end's well.  The visitors left for home  around 9 a.m. Sunday morning  thanking Squamish for the real  good time and expressing the  wish to come back again soon.

Their  record in war financing will stand for  many years to come. \  Through six years, millions saved and invested in Victory Bonds and War Savings  Certificates in a way no one thought possible. Many thousands learned the convenience of regular, systematic saving,  whether in small monthly amounts or by  larger cash investment. As a result they  have accumulated substantial personal  reserves with all that means in increased  future security and satisfaction.  Because suggestions and requests have  come to me from all parts of the country  that facilities for this kind of saving be  continued in peacetime, the Canada Savings Bond has been created.  The issue of War Savings Certificates and  Stamps to the general public will be discontinued on September 30th, and final  instalments on the last Victory Bond  issue will have been completed in the  near future. Canada Savings Bonds,  therefore, will provide an opportune  means for citizens to carry on their regular  savings habits without interruption.  The general public should note that this  time there will be fewer salesmen than in  the case of Victory Bonds. Although the  new Canada Savings Bonds will be sold  through banks, authorized investment  dealers, stock brokers and trust or loan  companies, these agencies will not be able  to approach every individual Canadian.  This means that for the most part it tribe left to Canadians to assume the respon-  ; sibility fox their own purchases^of Canada  Savings Bonds. If they wish to grasp  this opportunity, they should act foir  themselves without delay.  Canada Savings Bonds are designed to  be the finest investment available to the  public today.

It contained a  story within, it made coast history without.  When Harry Whitney Treat,  president-manager of the Van  Anda Copper ahd Gold Company, set out to do something,  he did it thoroughly. New  houses shone out from among  the evergreens, clothing the hillsides leading down to Van Anda  Bay. The song of the big saw  in the mill over the creek's  mouth told everyone of a busyness that was very saisfying.  And the ore being brought out  of the mines, particularly of the  Cornell, was good beyond expectations.  This was in the year 1898.  The decision to build a smelter at Van Anda was executed as  properly as the other projects  of the company had been. From  New Jersey, a clever metallurgist, Thomas Kiddie, was brought  to superintend: the mining and  smelting operations.  Eric Ericson, an ex-teacher  from the schools of Sweden-  built the frame of the .smelter  for the company. Erickson's  home was a neat little sloop anchored in the bay at Van Anda.  A small furnace was installed  in the smelter, but scarcely lasted out the same year, 1898, before it blew in.  Immediate plans enlarged the  smelter and brought from Vancouver a furnace", one with a  story.  Ten years previously a group  of promoters had built in Vancouver,^., smelter and^had in- ���  stalled.the furnace. Because of  their ignorance they piled scrap  wrought iron into the furnace as  flux, which "froze" it and ended its activity in that project���  Vancouver's only smelter. This  then became Van Anda's number two furnace.-  Alex McKelvie, father of the  well-known British Columbia  historian, Bruce McKelvie, was  the master mechanic who in 1888  installed the furnace in Vancouver, and in 1898, moved with his  family to Van Anda, where he  installed it in the enlarged smelter at the water's edge. The  furnace had not been new when  Vancouver had acquired it.  It was not known at that time  that Texada's ores were self-  fluxing, so tons.of iron ore were  hauled across the Island' from  the Iron Mine: then a tram-line  SECHELT  Attention Residents, Merchants,  Visitors, and Others  We have been authorized by The Union Steamship  Co.

Back of the smelter huge cord-  wood fires were built on which  to roast the piles of green ore  in preparation for smelting. The  surrounding vegetation suffered  disastrously from the dense yellow smoke that poured from  this operation.  That optimism ruled the village may be noted from an editorial on the Van Anda Company's workings, written in  early 1900. The editor became  enthusiastic when he wrote:  "Never before have there been  such vast piles of ore on the  roast heaps at the smelter and  never before have two shipments of copper matte per week  left for Vancouver with unfailing regularity."  It was on this same furnace  later, that W. J. Watson, assayer  during Van , Anda's smelting  days, conducted experiments  leading to two important discoveries. He learned that most  of our coast ores are self-fluxing  and he devised a method of  feeding the green ore straight  into the furnace, thus eliminating the roasting process.  Interestingly enough, when  the historic furnace was taken  from Van Anda in 1903 to Lady-  smith, it was Alex McKelvie,  master .mechanic and blacksmith, who for the third time installed it.  New Barker  For Woodfibre  FOUNDATIONS are being prepared at the Woodfibre plant  of B. C, Pulp & Paper Co., Ltd.  for a modern new steam power  plant and a hydraulic barker.  Plans for these installations  are well advanced but date of  completion will depend on der  livery of machinery and equipment.  With capacity equal to two  day's supply for the mill, three  chip storage bins are being completed at Woodfibre. The company's plants at Woodfibre and  Port Alice are both operating  normally after resuming in July  after the closedown due to the  loggers' strike. *  MRS. D.

She is 42 feet in length with  an 11-foot beam and and up-to-  date plywood deck house, including an instrument board in  front of the wheel, all very  handy under the steersman's eye.  Her horsepower is around 120  ' and she may be used in barge  service.  The  ship  was  christened  by  Mr.  and Mrs.   R.  D.

Mr. Franklin, a native of B.C., r  was the first light-keeper at  the Merry Island light-house,  1903, and remained as such for  30 years before retiring to his_?  beginning his duties around  home on Franklin Island, which  adjoins Merry Island. It was  about the beginning of his retirement that he went to Victoria to receive the Long Service Medal awarded him by the  Governor-General for his long  and faithful service.  Upon taking up his new dut- '  ies as light-keeper he decided  to keep a register of all visitors .  to the, island, and has continued  to do so down through the  years. During his 43 years on  the island Mr. Franklin has become well known to seafaring  men of the Pacific coast, and  his register is of much interest  to those returning in later years.  On his birthday a number of  friends from Welcome Beach  and Halfmoon Bay visited Mr.  and Mrs. Franklin. The register,  was brought forth and it was of  interest to note that among  those present were some who  had signed many years preyious.  Visiting from the mainland  were Mr. and Mrs. Meikle, and  Mr. A. A. Young of Welcome  Beach. YMr. Meikle's name first  appeared on the register in 1903,  While Mrs. Meikle had signed  in 1905 as Jessie Clubb. From  Halfmoon Bay were Mrs. H.  Tait, who had signed in 1908,  as' Blanche Spillett, Mr. and  Mrs. Thontas Beasley, Mrs. Bill  Mervin, Masters David and Bill  Beasley, Master Johnny Mervin.  After the ceremony, beach  firesrwere lit and a very h&ppy  arid hungry party got away with  plates of hamburger and steaming hot coffee and other liquid,  refreshments whose names I  cannot remember. I sailed put.  into the sound on a trial trip on,  the "Bighorn" and above the  wheel there was.a picture and  sure enough it was the "Lindy  Lou."  Among the guests oresent  were Mr. and" Mrs. R. D. Poole  of Caulfield, arid son Glen; Dr._  and Mrs. D.

Road Delegation Wins  Promise of Inspection  SECHELT���-For the second time  within six months the Pender  [arbour-Howe Sound Truckers  id Taxi Association sent a delegation to Victoria regarding the  roads on Sechelt Peninsula. This  |ime it was a two-man delegation, JKarry Sawyer of Sechelt  irtd Ibhnriy Bertram of Gibsons  .anding.   Jim Veitch, president  >f the Gibsons Landing and District Board of Trade was chosen  Io represent the board as mem-  ��>er of the delegation, but it is  iot known why he was unable  lb attend.  The association's purpose in  fending a delegation to Victoria  Shis time was to have measures  iken now to prevent the roads  Jrqm   reaching  the  state   they  rere in last winter when certain sections   of   the   highway  ras almost impassable.

They pointed out  where certain ditches should be  ( dug and bridges to be repaired.  The dangerous corner at Sechelt  known as" Flecks Corner, the  Port Mellon road, perriianent  grading of the roads and the  very low wages being paid to  the road maintenance crew  were mentioned.  In reply Mr. Anderson said  that thousands and thousands of  dollars have been spent on road  equipment, but to date less than  one third of it has been received,  and just as soon as it is delivered in sufficient quantities a survey will be made of road conditions and something will be  done in each riding. He pointed  out that other districts were  also suffering from inferior  roads due to the lack of equip-  \ ment and labor. yHe did not  mention any definite road plan  for this district,. but indicated  that something would be done to  improve them. He gave no hopes  that there would be permanent  grading, and in as far as wages  were concerned he said that ->  special order in council would  have to be passed before they  could be raised.  While the delegation was  present he phoned long distance  to Mr. George Stowe ano> asked  him to meet the two men at the  earliest possible date to go over  the roads with them and get  their ideas on what should be  done to improve them.  Before parting with the delegation; Mr. Anderson informed  them that he appreciated having them there as this was one  way to learn about the problems  of the district.  BOWEN ISLAND  Miss P.

He said that B.C. producers  are not connected with the  Alberta application, but it was  safe to a'ssume that B.C. mines  would have to ask for an increase ��� probably greater than  the 60-cent increase which  Alberta producers are asking.

It  was charged they had taken  such things as lines, rods, reels,  and gasoline, most of them retrieved at New Westminster.  A number of thefts from mail  boxes   at   Roberts   Creek were  cleared up when a ten-year old.  boy   confessed  he  had  opened  envelopes   looking   for   money.

First intimation that trouble  was brewing came in October  1943, when three men walked  into the club with their hands  in the pockets. They came out  accompanied by a pale youth.  To all appearances this youth  vanished.  The hot club lost its guiding  spirit ��� Charles Delaunay���and  the work of a widespread underground Franco-British network  was .endangered by his arrest.  But, today,' Delaunay is back  where he belongs, as leader of  this temple of jazz, more zealous  than ever in the pursuit and defence of "pure" jazz, which he  says is the language of the  future.  But he still talks of the time  when secret meetings were held  every day ^n a small recording  room, "while saxophones wailed  on the other side of the wall..."  Twice the Nazis raided the  club but both times they drew  a blank, although arms and  munitions were frequently hidden there.  Furniture?
