Flumerfelt, Correspondent  THE ANNUAL meeting of the  Y Roberts Creek Canadian lied  Cross was held on September  17. The; report of the works:  committee for the year 1045-46  shows that a large volume of  work has been completed arid;  sent to headquarters, also that  there are on hand, almost ready  for shipment, 10 layettes, comprising about 250 articles. These  layettes have entailed much  time, though and labor on tne  part of the small but Very active  group in the local chapter. It:  was decided that the usual card  parties would be held as n for  mer winters.

REGULAR meeting of. the  Squamish     branch     of     the  Legion   was   held   Wednesday  night in the Parish Hall, Vice-  President J. R. Morrison in the  chair.   A great deal of business  was transacted and it was a very  interesting meeting.    A'��� hearty  welcome  was   extended  to  the  newly formed Women's Auxiliary and the branch expressed  a sincere wish to co-operate and  assist the W.A.  in every way.  The  question of  Remembrance  Day was raised and discussed in  the light of it now being a statutory holiday and it was felt that  the   branch . should  revive   the  custom of having a full memorial service in the morning for  the public as well as members  and a banquet in  the evening  for members, followed by a public   dance   in   the   P.G.E.   Employees  hall.    During  the  late  war, the dances were not held  as   they   had   been   since   the  Legion was first organized here.  We are sure we can count on  - the<greatest ^public- support: toi*  this occasion, so folks, remember the Nov. 11th memorial service  221-7 the  morning   arid   the  dance at night.  It was suggested that tfie  W.A. be invited to co-operate in  the sale of poppies his year. You  just   can't   refuse    the   lovely  y ladies fellows^ so get ready to  support generously. ,  A good committee was named  for the arrangements for Nov.  11th and the W:A. invited to do  likewise and we are sure that  the arrangements will be the  best ever. There are a large  number of initiations scheduled  for the next meeting, so be sure  ;? ~tb beyon hand all you ex-service  yjnen. :���' ��� - r '���'���'.,.  J. F, Jacobsen  Phones Mother  jnMorway  SQUAMISH���Mr. J. F. Jacob-  sen of Squamish, B, C, sat  down to a telephone in a Vancouver office the other day arid  called his mother in Norway.  The occasion being her 73rd  birthday. He only had to wait  one hour and 45 minutes to  make the connection. Although  Mr. Jacobsen has not seen his  mother for 28 years the conversation was clear enough for him  to recognize her voice.  Pit-Lamper Pays  For Shooting Horses  WILLIAM Frederick Hunter,  Horseshoe Bay, was fined  $500 or 60 days in jail Monday  on a.. charge of "pit-lamping"  on Gambier Island.  He was charged after two logging horses were found shot last  week.  AN ALLOTMENT of $50,000 in the House supplementary  \ estimates for the purpose of installing" new telephone  and exchange equipment in the peninsula area, Port Mellon  to Pender Harbor, is announced by James Sinclair, youthful  member for this riding.  "In addition, a priority was issued for R.C.A.F. equipment," Mr. Sinclair told The Coast News, "and that will  increase the effective amount to nearly $100,000, inasmuch  as all surplus R.C.A-F. equipment was turned over to the  department at one-third cost."  The work starts immediately, Mr. Sinclair said. Gibsons Landing will be the centre of the system, where 12  more phones are to be added to the present switchboard.  All present single steel wires are to be removed, and double  copper cables installed, thus providing extra future lines.  There will be a direct circuit to Gibsons from each of  the following: Seaside Park, Port Mellon, Hopkin's Landing, and Grantham's Landing. Previously only one line   existed    for   all    of   these  "Pop" Kolterman's  50th BirtMaw  HALFMOON BAY���Mrs. F. W.  Kolterman entertained the evening of Sept. 21 in honor of Mr.  "Pop" Kolterman's 50th birthday. Relatives and friends  joined in making the party a  memorable orie, with dancing  and group singing. Highlight  of the evening;:was the recita-  tiori of the "TheVDeath of Sam  McGee" by Rbnald Kolterman.  Supper was served at midnight  at which time Mr. Kolterman  was presented with a gold signet ring given by his wife and  children, presentation being  made by his brother, Percy.  Those attending the birthday  celebration were Miss Laverne  Anderson and Ken Anderson of  Burnaby;  Mr.  and Mrs.  Percy  Kolterman, Mr.  and Mrs. Ronald Kolterman, New Westminster;   Mr.   W.   Plumridge,   Narrows  Arm;  Mr.  and  Mrs.  Ted  Osborne, Sechelt; Mr. and Mrs;  R.   Mosier,   Mr.,  and   Mrs.   B.  Sands, Mr. and Mrs. G. Harrington, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Taylor, Mr. and Mrs. T. Parish^ Mr.  and Mrs. J. Burrows, Mr. and  Mrs. E. Lewis, Mr. and Mrs. J.  King, Mr.  and Mrs. F. Lyons,  Mr. ahd Mrs. Thomas Beasley,  Mr. 'andvMrs.  S.  Cassidy,  Mr.  and Mrs. L. S. Edmunds, Miss  Marion Edmunds, Mr. B. Foley.-  Film Board Showings  Start October 9  DATES for initial showings of  Naitonal Film Board pictures  in the Howe Sound circuit have  been released to The Coast  News. Winter showings will get  underway at Gibsons Landing  October 7, at Roberts Creek,  Oct. 8; Sechelt, Oct. 9; and at  Halfmoon Bay, Oct. 10. Showtime is eight o'clock at all four  points.  points.  Another direct circuit will  ser^e^ Ito  sideline to Gower Point for  a pay-phone booth to serve  residents there.  Six direct cables will go from.  Gibsons Landing to the Sechelt  switchboard, which will then be  equipped to provide service to  the local area through that  board. There will also be a  direct cable to Wilson Creek,  one to Halfmoon Bay and Redroofs, arid another to Pender  Harbor.  "This means/' Mr. Sinclair  pointed out, "that people even  at the two extremelies (Port  Mellon or Pender Harbor) can  phone direct to Gibsons on lines  bearing no other traffic. They  can also be immediately connected to Vancouver and  through that exchange to other  points anywhere;  "The specification for double  copper caole will mean that  transmission of voice will be  equal to that ordinarily found  on any ctiy telephone."  In addition, extra cost is incurred in putting up new poles  throughout the area. It was expected at first that the phone  could share the power commission's poles, but as this organization is using a high-vol*,;-  age line, phones lines cannot be  carried on the same poles.  The improved system is a  quick result of Mr. Sinclair's  appeals at the last session for  consideration of a problem  which was pointed out to him  through The Coast News. In ihe  house the member demanded  that the government either sell  the existing lines, equipment  and franchise to he B.C. Telephone Company, or make it a  first-class government system.  "I preferred that the government keep and improve the  line," Mr.-Sinclair pointed out  at that time. "But I urge immediate action and stated that  neither my constituents nor myself cared who operated it so  long as we got decent service."  New Home Fi*is fa +  ��� written last  week to the career (in West-  view) of "Dodo," the fawn  . which Len Pole found by the  roadside near Springbrook dairy  two months ago. The animal  was taken to Hardy Island by  Constable N. J.- Winegarden in  the police boat.  Human Skeleton  Found Near  Port Mellon  AN   ARMY   enlistment   button  issued to Isaac H. Hezekia,  Nanaimo, was found near a  human skeleton in the isolated  Plowden Bay area, one-half  mile west of Port Mellon by F.  Angell, logging operator.  The skeleton was shipped to  Vancouver where police are trying to trace Hezekia. ,  Also found near the skeleton  which was lying^two feet above  the  high water  mark,, were  a  ^^wm^coat^y^^etWearl Y liquor  permit and a $2 bill.  Police believe the body had  been lying exposed for more  than a year.  Gibsons A.O.T.S.  In Church Hall  THE   A.O.T.S.   of  the   Gibsons  Memorial  Church  held   their  inonthly   dinner   on   Thursday-  Sept. 19,  at 6.3C p.m., with 20  members   being  present.     Mrs.  Fred Howlett was in the chair  and entertainment provided by  the   U.B.C.   with   the   loan   of  films  from  the  National   Film  Board.   The series consisted of:  1.

About 400 net  ���'    fruit tons    of   greengage  fruit  pulp also will move on this next  loading.  ro/ee;  APPROXIMATELY    250    men  are now working on the power  house, penstock, dam and storage basin, in connection with the  B.C. Power Commission's Campbell River development, it was  announced    by    Premier    John  vHaft.    Contractors are making  steady progress with the work.  Driving of sheet piling in the  earth dam is nearing completion  while   concrete   work   at   the  power house has been started.  Work in the river bed, essential to the handling of water is  progressing satisfactorily while  good    progress  is  being  made^  with clearing operations in the  area  which ultimately  will be  flooded by the control dam.  In  connection with the  con-  ��� struction   of   the   transmission  line   from   Campbell   River   to  Nanaimo  and  also  to  Alberni,  survey parties have now been  withdrawn and the contractors  have  commenced work setting  the  steel  tower  footings.    The  general delivery of steel, how-  ver,   is  still  delayed  owing  to  the strike in eastern plants.  OTHER PROJECTS  A new distribution system at  Terrace is nearing completion  while installation of a second  diesel engine of 200 horsepower  capacity at Sechelt has been  completed. Materials are being  assembled for the construction  of a new diesel power plant at.  Quesnel.  A survey of all potential hydro development in the vicinity  of Golden has been started while  a survey of possible hydro-electric sites in the vicinity of Hope  has been completed.  TO BE REPAID  A $2,000,000 Province of British Columbia six per cent debenture issue will mature on  October 1, it.was announced by  the Honorable Herbert Anscomb, minister of finance. This  maturity will be paid off in full  from debt redemption provisions  specifically established in connection with this issue. The debentures were originally sold on  October 1, 1921, under the provisions of the Highway Loan  Act of 1920 arid were sold by  the province at a cost of ��.38  per cent.  PUBLIC WORKS  Further evidence of the difficulties confronting the public  works department in carrying  out its extensive and comprehensive programme oi undertakings was revealed ffrr the  second time this year when no  bids were received for a road  contract which normally would  haye attracted spirited competition. Tenders were called for  the construction of 2.3 miles of  new road tp Seymour Park in  the North Vancouver district.  When the deadline came for the  opening of tenders, none had  been received. This was due  apparently to the fact that contractors are experiencing extreme difficulty in securing  labor and materials.  NOTICE TO PROSPECTORS  The Honorable R. C. MacDonald, minister of mines, issued a  warning this week to all prospectors drawing their attention  to the fact that mineral claims  should not be staked in areas  reserved for miliary purposes.  Iri January, 1944, a reserve for  military purposes was placed on  a mile-swide stretch':^ of \ Crjpwn  lan#pn either side of the Cana-  dian-Aiasjkan highway and the  projected right-of-T?ray of any  6f the following Tproposed highways: Prince George to Fort St.  John yia Pine Pass; Prince  George  to  Dawson   Creek  via  Pine Pass; Vanderhoof to Fort  , St. John via Manson Creek and  Pine Pass; and Prince George  to Dawson Creek via Monkman  Pass.  ELECTION SURVEY  R. H. Carson, chairman of the  special committee appointed to  inquire into the B.C.; Elections  Act has been in Victoria during  the past week, dealing with maters appertaining to a revision of  the act. '  He reported that the returns  from the questionnaire sent put  to citizens, shows a very srpng  trend toward the institution of  a system of obligatory voting.  This trend of public opinion will  be given most careful consideration by the special committee.  ALASKA HIGHWAY  Following a meeting with a  special committee of the provincial cabinet, officials of the  Dominion government indicated  that the Alaska highway  through British Columbia - will  be opened to the public in 1947.  Public works minister the Hon-.  orable E. C. Carson, said that a  representative of the provincial  government will be sent to the  Peace River district in the near  future to travel over the highway to survey camping and service station facilities so that the  present reserve can be lifted  upon application by those desiring to proyide these facilities to  the public.  FRUIT EXPORT  The Honorable L. H. Eyres,  minister of trade and industry,  announced that approximately  10,0Q0 barrels of British Columbia raspberries in S02 solution  for the United. Kingdom ministry of food had already been  loaded at New Westminster this  year, and that a third and last  loading before the end of the  The List That Show?

AN AUSTRALIAN doctor, who  was practically unknown outside his own district* has achieved fame after death. Residents  of Payneham, a suburb of Adelaide, are planning a $9,720  children's centre as a memorial  to Dr. E. L. Borthwick for his  46 years of self-sacrifice for the  community.  Examples of his deeds for the  needy were: He never charged a  poor patient. He thanked a  patient for getting better after  he had performed, free of  charge, an operation that saved  the patient's life. He had an  understanding with a druggist  that prescriptions marked "ad  meum" (to my account) were to  be provided free for patients.  He instructed the local butcher  to send steak daily '��������� to poor  patients who needed food rather  than medicine. He sent loads of  firewood to the needy during  the winter. For 26 years he attended, free of charge, a man  suffering from an incurable ailment. Dr. Borthwick was 75  when he died and to the last he  struggled to attend people who  were not as ill as he was.

GUEST EDITORIAL  ONE DAY I watched my father hitching horses  to a plow at the end-rig of a stubble field. I  was about eight years old then. "Couldn't  those horses just run away, rather than stand  there to be hitched?" I asked. Father smiled  ahd replied, "Horses don't know their own  strength, lass." .  What I'm driving at is this: Do women know  their own strength? Why aren't we doing  something to avert this on-coming war that  we're hearing so much about? There will be  no geographical limitations next time. It will  reach our own doorstep.  Those industrial wars, that so-called ��sane  men have been indulging in lately, don't affect  only those in the industry concerned. If some  men feel like stopping work in protest against  working conditions, why should that give them  the right to force their fellow workers to strike  also? Some signs which read, MEN AT WORK,  should actually read, AGITATORS AT WORK.  Regarding the present "Farmers' Strike" ���  surely they've chosen the wrong time. The  majority of them have never before known  such prosperity as they now enjoy. Granted,  the prices of machinery are exorbitant, but  that raise, as we all know, was caused by,the  fore-going strikes. Why couldn't farmers cooperate, chip in together for the purchase of  machinery, in brotherly fashion, which proved  so successful in pioneering days?  (The grand  Gibsons Dock  NO CLEARER indication of the need for in-'  creased docking facilities here could be given  than was revealed by the condition that manifested itself Wednesday night.   Soon after the  "Trucilla", of Vancouver Barge Transportation,  had decided to discharge freight, the "Shellco"  attempted to land to pump oil to the tanks  ashore.   She managed to pass a hose to the  wharf   after   considerable   manoeuvring,   but  could not actually find space to dock herself.  While both these ships were in, the "Eastholm"  approached with the hopes of landing its cargo.  One of her life-boats could not have found room  to dock, and she was forced to put back to  Granthams for the night.   Perhaps  this  case  was a coincidence, but it is a phenomenon that  is likely to recur more, rather than less, frequently in the future.  We have been fortunate  in having various transportation organizations  increase our service here tremendously during  the past year.   We cannot at any time in the  future look to a much- greater facilitation if  we cannot accommodate the vessels sent here  to accommodate us.  Puss  IT WAS recently proposed in London to lay  out a garden as a memorial to Dick Whitting-  ton, thrice Lord Mayor of the city. There is no  information as to whether his. cat would be  commemorated with him, but it surely has  claims, as the most eminent British cat in history, to such public recognition. It has, indeed,  no competitors, unless we acknowledge that  anonymous adventurer who, according to reports current in the nursery, declared, "I've  been to London to see the Queen."  It may be objected that Whittington's cat  never existed; but in that case, as a fiction, it  is still a rare and distinguished phenomenon,  only to be rivaled by the Cheshire Cat or maybe "Puss in Boots." Dogs have been celebrated  \often enough in fiction, from "The Dog Crusoe" and "Owd Bob" to the canine heroes of  Kipling and Jack London.

HAINES  old days when everybody was happy.)  In recent years, the farmers were given non-  wheat-growing bonuses, milk subsidies, cheap  elevator grain for hog raising. Other tradesmen  were taxed so that" the farmers could have  these privileges.  From my own experience and observation,  the farmer's wife labors more in one day than  the farmer does in two.    (John Grumly can  say what   he   pleases.)    Those   farmers   who  had the power to avert the strike���IF THEY  ONLY KNEW IT!   If they'd said: Alright, NO  COOKING!    That would have been sufficient.  Those farmers do like to eat!   Besides, men are  only little boys grown up.    They'll listen ��to  women who can make them realize that women  think from the heart���not'from the pocketbook.  It seems, our steadfast farmer���whose good  name is legion, has now turned mercenary, and  evidently cares riot that thousahdsyof starviiig  and   dying   people   are   reaching   with. outstretched   hands   toward   him,   pleading   for  FOOD.   What an opportunity the farmers had  to show the whole world an example of human-  ness and brotherly love.  Now, it's high time that women grabbed the  reins, and made a staunch endeavor to keep  the wheels of industry on the straight and narrow middle of the road.  WOMEN proved, in the last war, what they  could do���when they tried. '  J ust a  Minute  with BILL McCUSKER  WE'VE BEEN wondering whether debunking  is worth bothering about at all ever since  last Monday, when we received a batch of  propaganda from an old friend, whom we shall  call H-J. You, yourself, know good old H-J  well. He's the boy behind those enticing ads  in such intellectual heavyweights as Ranch  Romances, Stuporman and assorted dime  dreadfuls- (at 15c). >  Well sir, he's branching Out, is H-J. He puts  out a monthly paper now, The American Freeman, complete with a classified ad section. And  in this section, the reader can'now obtain information on the cause and cure of all diseases ($1); an assortment of art pictures and  glamour girls ($1); a beautiful correspondence  magazine, with sixteen pages of descriptions,  photographs and addresses (25c);: the details of  preserving and puncture-proof ing tires with  plastic (3c stamp); samples and catalogue of  "adult" books (10c); three formulas for gaso-  lineiess fuel that will double any car's mileage  ($1); the secrets of becoming a lightning calculator (50c); sealed particulars on a nation- wide  sweetheart finding service for refined men and  women (free); and a dozen bottles of "My Sin"  perfume'($1).  H-J has been debunking God, religion, capitalism, orthodoxy of various sorts, and everything else for a good many years. By now,  you would imagine, his loyal readers would be  the most completely debunked group of people  in the whole world, free-thinking, worldly,  sales-resistant, their minds vibrant and overflowing with truth. Yet they seem to be the  same old suckers they were when H-J started  off with them thirty years ago. How in the  world can you explain a thing like that?

General Blacksmithing  Rudder and Net Guards  Repaired  JOE CONNELL  Pender Harbour  miss  THIS Province is an acknowledged leader in Canada in the field of Physical Education  and Recreation. Compulsory Physical Education in the schools from Grade One to Grade  Twelve has long been in operation, and the curriculum is based on sound educational philosophy. In 1934, the Hon. Dr. G. M. Weir, then Minister of Education, inaugurated in the  Province the first government-sponsored Recreational Classes. Today, this programme is  operating under the jurisdiction of the Department of Health and National Welfare.  SCOPE  _ The School program consists of gymnastics, agilities, stunts, athletics, tumbling and  apparatus, rhythms, and recreational activities. Intramural programs are stressed to ensure  maximum participation.  The Community Recreation embraces all of these activities with additional emphasis  on recreational games, conditioning exercises, hobbies, arts and crafts.  Teachers of School Physical Education are given general and specialized training during  teacher-training years, summer sessions, and through in-service courses. Instructors, coaches  and leaders for community recreation centres attend in-service courses throughout the year,  and refresher courses are he3d during the summer months  POLICY  Throughout all ages the activities chosen are those suited to the physical capacity of  the individual, his interests, the maintenance of his organic vigor, and the wholesome use  of his leisure time. Communities are encouraged and advised in the organization of Community Centres. This Department aids Community Centres and Clubs already in existence  *and offers help in supplying and training leadership, and in furnishing equipment. Assistance  is given in the planning of recreation and sports facilities, Community Centres, playing  fields, swimming pools, playgrounds and equipment.  COMMUNITY RESPONSIBILITY  The objectives' of this program include: Every school a gymnasium and playing field.  Every child in a summer camp. An outdoor program for every adult. Every British Columbian  a swimmer. A recreational program for the whole family. Adequate leadership and facilities  in every community.  FOR THE FUTURE ��� BE FIT B.C.  On the Community level of the implementing of the National-Provincial program there  must be a sharing of responsibility in the provisions of recreational opportunities by the  respective communities. The recreational requirements of the communities can be supplied  effectively and economically only through the fullest co-operation of all local groups. A  number of communities throughout the Province are co-operating successfully in such plans.  BEMRTMEJT OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION AJB REMTIOflf  PARLIAMENT   BUILDINGS  VICTORIA,   B.C.  95 Page Six.

That's the statement of  Thomas Haines, Wildwood resident and former Alberta farmer, who returned to this district  recently after a five-week sojourn in the Edmonon region of  the prairies.  Mr. Haines explained that the  farmers' strike in Alberta has  resulted in large quantities of  produce piling up at the various  farms. "In one case," he said  "I saw a farmer's "wife dump1"  the milk into her new washing  machine, start it up and, a short  time later, take out a large  quanity of butter."  The farmers have two. objects  in striking, "Mr. Haines said.

The  dreadnought which carried Lord  Jellicoe's flag at the battle  of  Jutland   in    1916   cneated   the  wreckers in 1930 when she was  one  of five  British  battleships  to be  discarded under the International treaty of that year.  Instead of being scrapped, she  was   "demilitarized",    and   became  a  gunnery  training  vessel.    Her   side   armor   was   removed, four of her 10 big guns  taken away, and her speed lowered   by   reducing   her   boiler  power.    Now   she   has   arrived  at   Faslane-on-the-Clyde   to   be  broken up.  "-'Until the Queen Elizabeth was  completed in January of 1915,  the Iron Duke class headed  Britain's ��� list of battleships.  Dreadnoughts of 21,250 tons,  with 12-inch armor at the water-  line, they carried 10 13.5-inch  guns and 12 6-inch guns. They  cost about $10,000,000 apiece.  They were eclipsed by the  Queen Elizabeths of 31,100 tons,  with eight 15-inch guns and 12  6-inch guns. Today Britain's  largest battleship is the Vanguard, 42,500 tons^ and said to  be a $48,950,000 ship.  The Iron Duke is not the only  veteran of Jutland to go to the  ship-scrappers   this   year.   Last  March it was officially announced   that   the  Warspite,   of   the  Queen Elizabeth class, was ticketed for destruction.   The War-  spite   was   terribly   mauled   at  Jutland, but was reconstructed  and was still doing her part in  the   Second   Great   War.    She  bombarded   the    Normandy  beaches previous to the landing,  and joined the eastern fleet in  the war against the Japanese.  But the future of even modern    battleships   is   in \ doubt.
