C.  )  t  I  BRITANNIA TOWNSITE ��� On  Saturday, July 27, Britannia  Townsite gathered her amateur  performers together and presented a show that will long be  remembered in this community.  Many a chuckle will be had  for days to come, when thoughts.  turn to the beautiful, hairy-  legged ballet dancers. This act  was done to a wiggling end by  Bill Cadenhead, Geordie Mitchell and George Wildblood.  The ladies' "Canteen Band"  made up mostly of- kitchen  utensils, had to provide five encores before the audience would  allow them to leave the stage.  "Lochihvar" also by an all-  lady cast, who pantomined the  story to the voice of a backstage narrator, had the spectators practically rolling on the  floor as the broom-handle horses  galloped around the stage.  A shadow play, done by a  mixed group, saw a doctor operating oil a poor helpless patient and after taking everything his insides contained, he  proceeded to take all the patient  had in his pocket book.  Other contributions on the  programme were solos by Mrs.  N. Fraser, Mrs." E. Holmes and  Joan Bishopy A very nice trio  was made up by Patsy Hamelin,  Barbara Bennett and Elsie Anderson.  ��� Monologues were presented  | by Francis Bentley, Patsy Ham-  | elin, Mrs. E.

From San Francisco the Pud-  get Sound Iron Company sent  representatives. What they saw  evidently convinced them of the  value of the property. In 1875  they acquired about three thousand acres on the north-west  coast of Texada Island, which  have been in their possession  ever since.  Between 1883 and 1893 considerable development work was  done on the Prescott ore body.  During that period records show  that more than 16,000 tons of ore  were shipped to the company's  furnace at irondale, Washington. The "Mary J. Park", a sailing schooner, carried much tof  this ore.  FOR WARSHIPS  Its contribution to American  naval history is a vital part of  the Iron Mine. Its iron went  into the construction of four  American warships of which the  "Oregon" is perhaps the best  known.  Pioneers of Texada's earliest  days have high, praise for the  qualities of..the local iron.

August 10 will be Regatta  ) Day at Granthams and a great  ? program of water sports will be  ��� arranged  for  the  young  folks.  SWIMMING  AND  DIVING  There will be swimming and  diving competitions for all ages  with fun, frolic and laughter for  older sages.  As this is the first regatta to  be held since pre-war days, it is  hoped to be better, bigger and  brighter than ever before. Saturday; August 10, make all  trails lead to Granthams by the  sea.  Although sustained work at  the Iron Mine ceased about 1893,  periodic work was done in the  early 1900's. Various amounts  of ore were shipped until by  1908 more than 12,000 tons were  added^to the 1893 total. Since  then only an occasional shipment of ore has been taken.  vIn 1916 a small amount of activity occurred again over a  copper prospect near the shaft.  Bunkers and a tramway were  built but little or no copper was  taken out. There was talk of a  railroad bed being surveyed  from the Iron Mine to Gillies  Bay where docks were to be  built.  However tunnels and shaft  were left to deteriorate. Mine  buildings and the two or three  ' log houses took on a deserted  air. Alder, bracken and shrubs  began to cover man's scars on  the side hill.  SOLITARY LIFE  One of the Island's pioneers  qame from the Irondale smelter  in Washington when the Puget  Sound Company sent Captain  1 William H. Lee to be their resident agent. For years, "Pop"  Lee, as his friend termed him,  lived a more or less solitary life,  with the spasmodic interruptions of activity to create a little  inerest for him.  In 1922 a fire took most of the  remaining buildings. Later the  rails of the tramway were removed for scrap.  Today cattle roam the swamp,  faint trails around and over the  mountain of iron can be found  by those familiar with the originals. Well-formed alders thrive  in the very middle of the old  wagon road.  But the property was not  dead.  Soon the magic wand of industry will wave over the sleeping body* of ore and hopes are  high for the future of the Iron  Mine. /  PURCHASE of landing barges  by Roy Walker of the newly-  formed Gulf Fuels and Barge  Company will make possible a  useful new service for the lower coast. Mr. Walker plans to'  serve the area from Howe  Sound to Powell River with a  fuel and shipping service, feature of which is the ramp-type  barges which" allow landings in  places where no wharf exists  or where better service might  be made by a beach landing.  The company is prepared to tow  short booms, also. They have  ramp loading at their wharf,  101 West First Avenue, Vancouver, which takes care of cars,  trucks, tractors, or heavy loads  coming out of the city for coast  points.  Coal is how available for delivery in the area, and if is expected that a .supply of dry  wood will be available in a few  weeks. Information on fuel may  be obtained direct, or from the  following, who. are not'necessarily licensed dealers as yet: ���  W. Piepfer, Pender Hatrbour;  Union SS. Store, Sechelt; Coop Store, Roberts Creek; Eric  - highs,  Gibsons Landing^ -     y  ;Tne company -owns theydiesel  tug, Hazel E., formerly owned '  by OscarNiemi Logging Company at Jervis Inlet. In charge  of tug and towing is Mr. Walker's partner, Allen Campbell,  who served four and a half  years with the navy as engineer. Mr. Walker was in charge  of the Niemi shop at Jervis Inlet and has wide experience in  business on the coast.  By   Margaret   Allan  This is about a veteran���an  Imperial Army veteran to nail  it right down. He was a member of Queen Victoria's famous  Guards at Buckingham palace  before the turn of the century,  and a handsome figure he must  have been. As a matter of fact,  he still is. Ramrod-straight, he  carries himself in the manner of  all military men.  And like all military men, he  likes to drink a ��� toast to the  King on His Majesty's birthday; but alas! to drink the  toast, all he can get is a glass  of beer. And the trouble involved in getting the beer is  such that our veteran is seriously thinking of foregoing this  annual  toast.  You see, the stuff can be  brought in here only by way  of the Mason road and as the  truckers boomps-a-daisy over  that horrible stretch with its  potholes, they can be heard  singing:  "Oh,   the   Mason   Road,   the  Mason Road,  With its glorious view, sloping down to the seas,  -   Looking  'cross  the  Gulf,  towards the hills beyond;-  Wakefield   stream   winds   in  and out,  And the children fish for the  beautiful trout,  Launched At  Gibsons  Veteran Reopens  Machine Shop at  Gibsons Landing  GIBSONS LANDING���The machine shop at Gibsons Landing, originally started by Jimmy  Jackson, has been reopened by  A. C. "Art" Bailey. ��� Art is a  veteran of the Canadian navy,  in which he served as an electrical artificer. He has been in  the electrical and mechanical  trades for the past fifteen years.  Part- of this time was spent in  the electrical shop at Ocean  Falls, part in the West Coast  Shipbuilders and the rest in  smaller shops in Vancouver and  New Westminster. Since his  discharge in February he has  Worked at the B. C. Plywoods  plant in Vancouver.  Art is of two very strong opinions. One is that a machine  shop and electrical repair shop  has been a need in Gibsons  Landing, and the other is that  there isn't a better place to live.  The shop will eventually - be  equipped to handle all machinist  and electrical repair, work.  Equipment will be added as fast  as the need arises.  The shop is located next to  Charlie Malcolm's boat shop and  will specialize in marine work.  Art is the son-in-law of D.  Cochrane, who is the secretary  of the Headlands Association.  >-which is alright for the truckers, but our veteran is wondering whether it's worth it.  A    toast    to    His    Majesty,  please!    And   may   His   representatives get about their busi-  . ness of fixing up.our roads!  Roberts Creek Red  Cross Thanks  Clothing Donors  ROBERTS CREEK���The Red  Cross Committee of Roberts  Creek, sponsors of the National Clothing Collection for this  district, wishes to thank residents of Roberts Creek for their  splendid response to the appeal  for used clothing to help the  distressed people of Europe and  Asia. Approximately 500 pounds  of clothing in good wearable  condition was collected and  shipped. Thanks for help in  collecting, etc., are due to  B. & R. Trucking, E. J. Shaw,  Gulf main line Co-op store for  packages and string and Coast  . News  for  publicity.  Breft Flies Plane  From Fori Erie  A FLEET Canuck single-wing  plane, first of its kind in the  district, has been flown here  from Fort Erie by Roy Brett,  Lang Bay logging operator. The  flight was without incident except for a bit of trouble encountered at a landing field in  Montana, Mr. Brett told the  News. He plans to use the plane  in connection with his logging  business, and has bulldozed a  special landing strip near his  logging claim at Lang Bay.  Powered by an 85 h:p. Continental engine, the plane cruises  at 100 miles per hour.  GIBSONS LANDING ���It was  11 p.m. at Malcolm's Boat  works, and half of Gibsons had  gathered for the occasion. Alice  Veitch swung the bottle (real  champagne) hard and true, and  the Arbutus I slid down the  ways. The owner, Sven Elm-  holdt, had been two years  gathering material for the ship.  Actual construction was begun  in January of this year by Charlie Malcolm. When completed,  the vessel was forty feet long,  eleven feet, five inches wide,  and five feet deep. It is a tuna  and troller model, and the largest boat ever launched at Gibsons.  Galley and pilot-house are  combined in this compact modern fishing boat. It is equipped  with powered anchor winich,  electric pilot and Harr direction  finder. The motor, 110 Crown  Chrysler, is located directly below the pilot house floor. Tanks  with capacity for 500 gallons of  gasoline will enable the Arbutus to make the long trips necessary in tuna fishing, in which  occupation it is to be used soon.  The Arbutus I is certainly not  Mr. Malcolm's first boat, nor is  it likely to be his last, but, how-  yet build, it is one-o�� which "he  can be and is justly proud.  Business and  Properly Change  Hands al Gibsons  GIBSONS LANDING ��� Management of the Merry Ern  Cafe has changed hands. Miss  Nancy Fowler of Vancouver has  leased the restaurant for one  year and has selected her own  staff to operate it. When furnishings are complete, she intends to make use of the newly  completed addition as a dining  room. Miss Fowler, while new  to the restaurant business, gained considerable knowledge in  purchasing and management  while secretary of the Point  Grey Golf Club in Vancouver.  C. P. Ballentine has purchased the two front lots previously  owned by Mrs. Frank Sully adjacent to Drew's. He intends to  excavate and build an eighty-  five foot structure on the site.  The tentative plan calls for  space for five business establishments below and a theatre and  hall above.  WEST  By   Margaret   Allan  Mr. and Mrs. Frank Walker  and Roy; would like to thank  the pupils of Sechelt United  School, from one to seven, also  the teachers, for their generosity and kindness to Roy when  he had his accident. Their gifts  were lovely and very much appreciated. We are glad to note  Roy is progressing favorably. Page Two  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.

Power commission is  proceeding at full speed with  construction of its giant undertaking at Campbell River to  provide electrical power to the  farmers, suburban homes and  factories of Vancouver Island.  Now being called are tenders  for clearing and burning brush  and debris on the area that will  be flooded by the head pond at  Irene Pool, just above Moose  Rapids, where a 1000-foot dam  is now under construction by  General Construction company,  which has more than 200 men  working two shifts a day on the  colossal job. Tenders for the  600-acre head pond will close  at Victoria, August 5, at noon. -  NEW MEDICAL SCHOOL  Premier Hart and Dr. Norman  MacKenzie, president of the  University of British Columbia,  have had another conference on  the establishment of a medical  faculty at the University. Every,  effort is being made to have the  faculty in operation when the  fall term opens late in September. Because eastern medical  schools are filled to overflowing, B.C. men who plan to be  doctors may have to wait a year  unless the U.B.C. medical faculty can start this year. Premier  Hart and his government afe  determined to have the faculty  opened as soon as possible.  CATHEDRAL GROVE ROAD  The Honorable E. C. Carson,  minister of public works, announced that the public works  department is calling tenders for  20 miles of new road through  Vancouver Island's famous scenic highway around Cameron  Lake and . through -.Cathedral  Grove. The job is expected to  cost in the neighborhood of  $750,000. Tenders will close on  August 7.  Government Forest branch  officials will be on the scene, as  the hew road goes through Cathedral Grove, to make sure  none of the magnificient trees  are destroyed. Cathedral Grove,  one of the finest stands of tall  timbers anywhere in the world,  is now owned by the government of the province and will  be preserved as a provincial  park for the pleasure and enjoyment of the people.  INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH  Honorable Leslie H. Eyres,  minister of trade and industry,  urges industrial firms to make  use of the facilities of the B.C.  Pacific Mills  Dam Site  Research council. With laboratories at the University of British Columbia, the council has a  staff of trained specialists in industrial research, able to provide B. C. industry, both large  and small, with research service. In the council's laboratories, industrial problems will be  investigated at cost and results  of the investigation reported to  the industry concerned, and kept  in strict confidence.

Friday, August 2, 1946  By   ALF   COTTRELL  Halfmoon Bay  SS. MARDRED, BOUND  SALMON   ROCK  The rather strained relations  that have existed for some time  between yours truly and the  lordly salmon remain in satus  quo, or possibly a trifle south  of -that point, despite negotiations that lasted for several  hours yesterday.  I have fished off and on for  years now and have yet to catch  so much as a humpback or even  a bent spring. And it ain't  finny,  McGee.  We caught the 4:10 bus bound  for Horseshoe Bay and were  met at 5 p.m., or thereabouts,  by pal Geo. Dunster ,the young  fellow who is getting to be quite  a boat magnate with his floats  and flotillas of putt-putts at.  both Horseshoe and Fisherman's  Cove.  I thought the idea was to go  out to sea in an outboard or in  George's fast but undergrown  cabin boat. However, when we  got to the end of the dock, his  wife, Dorie, and five-year-old  Garry were waiting in a nice  cabin cruiser job. We were introduced to Jack Inglis, the  Inglis, the owner of this boat,  the "Mardred."  We settled down in the stern  and Jack, up forward in the  cabin, headed her out. When he  opened her up, I looked hastily  around for a parachute to strap  on, for we seemed about to take  off. A V-8 motor sends one of  those things along right good.  LANDFALL AT  GIBSONS  LANDING  I went up to talk to Jack as  we headed around the north  end of Bowen Island. As wj;e  ducked in between Bowen and  a chunk of rock, he said the  latter was Hutt Island. He'  pointed out the islands owned  by the Bell-Irvings, R. H. Tapper and Ian Mackenzie as we  passed them. Then we headed  across for Keats Island and Gibsons.  Jack, it seems, owns and  operates the Mardred as a water  taxi. His headquarters is at  Horseshoe, but his home is at  Gibsons Landing. His dad settled there 33 years ago as a  doctor. Now two brothers of  Jack's, who are also doctors,  help their dad so that he has  time to loaf and rest a bit. So  Dr. Inglis Sr. loafs by building  boats, houses and little things  like that, despite his seventy  odd years of age.  We ran into Gibsons just to  pick up a net, something we had  forgotten. I was amazed at the  way the place had grown. It's  a depot for the Pender Harbor  bus, and cars run along its  street. There are big stores,  apartment buildings and hundreds of permanent homes. Eric  Inglis has a busy trucking business there, too.  We were soon anchored off  famous Salmon Rock, our nearby rendezvous. Just as we  slowed down to anchor a fellow  in a putt-putt brought a big  salmon, almost doubled in two  in its desire to escape, out of  the water. He lost it, but I felt  only a momentary pang of sorrow for the fisherman. If they  were around like that I knew  we were going to be lucky.  WORMS. NOT THE  .FASHIONABLE  DIET  George started getting out the  rods and the nylon lines. I felt  in my pockets and with relief  discovered that the worms I  had dug the night before were  still there. George saw them  and he seemed to choke on  something.   You can believe it  or not, but it seems you don't  use   worms   for   salmon.  Pretty soon we were all strip-  casting, wheeling in the herring-  baited nylon hand over hand" in  a little heap and then flipping  it out with the rod like you  throw a lacrosse ball. After an  hour Dorie called a halt for  coffee and sandwiches, though  I was so excited I couldn't eat,  except maybe eight of them, in  my hurry to get back to fishing.  A boat I hadn't noticed drifted along near us and one of the  fellows in it got his line fouled  on our anchor. It turned out  to be fireman Geo. Sikora and  his brother, Paul. They had  caught a big one, over 20  pounds. They lifted the lid of  the box and there it lay, a  beauty, though it looked slightly embarrassed about the whole  thing. They also had a 10-  pounder.  We fished harder than ever  then, but outside of one strike  we got nothing. It grew dark,  though no darker than the looks  that Dunster and Inglis were  giving me. How could I help it,  I mused as we headed back toward Horseshoe through the  lovely early evening light, if  the Cottrell jinx was still working.  SECHELT  W J. MAYNE, Correspondent  The V.O.N, garden party was  a huge success despite the  weather and a splendid gathering at the home of Mrs. F. Rice,  Selma Park, on July 10, was a  credit to the conveners. The  rain kept pff until late in .the  afternoon and the guests did not  get any of it. Proceeds are to  go towards repairing the scales  for the nurse, and, if enough  money   is   secured   new   scales  will be purchased.  .'*��� ��� *    * ���  The children had a real good  picnic on Monday, July 15, in  the sports grounds of the Union  Steamships Ltd., at Sechelt.  Judging by the noise they must  have all had a wonderful time  and, I believe, Mr. Elliott was  responsible for the splendid  day for the Sunday School kiddies.  *    *  *  .Mr. Guy Powell's sister and  family are guests at Sechelt  this weekend and are staying  at the Powell's home. They are  from Red Deer, Alta., and they  certainly enjoy the coast. Miss  Lenore Hack, niece of Mrs.  Powell, is also a guest at the  waterfront home.   Miss Hack is  from Port Coquitlam, B.C.  * *    *  Quite a gathering attended  the movie this week, "China  Sky". The picture itself was  very good and the shows each  week would be more appreciated if it were not for the  large attendance of various dogs  who invariably start a fight _at  the critical moment in the picture. I think, for the safety of  the patrons, dogs should be absolutely barred  from the  hall.  * *    *  Guests at "Glendalough" during the week included the. following: Mrs. Day, Miss Jessie  Day, Mrs. Lacey, Miss --Lily  Lacey, Mr. and Mrs, E. Counsel! Mr. "and Mrs. Goldfinch,  Mrs. Johnson, Miss Pat Raft-  ery, Mrs. Swann, Miss Dot  Swann, Miss Edith Nelson, Mr.  and Mrs. Charles Davidson, Mr.  and Mrs. Bolton, all of Vancouver. Miss Mary Paradis of Edmonton, Alta., and Miss Mary  Lloyd of Victoria, B.C.  BLESSED IS he whose transgression is  forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed  is the man unto whom the Lord imputeth  not iniquity, and in whose spirt there is  no gUjile.  Many sorrows shall be to the wicked:  but he that trusteth in the Lord, mercy  shall compass him about. Be glad in the  Lord, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout  for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.  ������Psalm, 32:1-2,10-11.  Bo Yoiir Part  BRITISH     Columbia's    timberlands     provide  more jobs and fill more pay envelopes than  any other source of wealth.  Right now, the forest rangers of our province  appeal to every citizen and tourist to accept  "sentry duty" whenever travelling in or near  a wooded area.  Fire ravages are due to personal recklessness  with smokes and camp fires. Personal alertness is the one and only antidote.  Enjoy British Columbia's outdoor glory, but  leave it unscarred by fire.  Bed Tick Suits  If you think you see an animated mattress  coming down the street, look sharply and  learn that it is a summer coat of bed ticking  hanging gracefully from the shoulders of a  young woman. Yes, bed ticking. It has made  its appearance as an emergency material for  versatile dressmakers and, strange to say, the  coats that have made their appearance do not  offend the eye.  Hre would seem to be an opportunity for  the man of the house to get his much-needed  suit. Let him get the old feather bed from  the attic, rip off the cover and proceed to get  himself a nice beach suit. It may not be exactly pin-striped, but that doesn't matter. It is  certainly as durable and as natty as seersucker.  Perhaps the greatest advantage is that its very  appearance suggests relaxation. So, obviously,  it wouldn't do for off ice ..wear.  Poet^s Corner  THE BATTLEFIELD OF EUROPE  By Donald (Graham  We are the men so brave and strong  Who fought and died in those battles long,  But now we sleep beneath the mud,  This; mud so thick and strained with blood.  The blood of soldiers strong and bold  Who fought in. the battles never told.  But as we lie here in the ground,  We hear no plane nor battle sound,  But only that of victory new,  The victory won and earned by you.  We died as those of World War I,  Nor did we once a battle shun.  I  Noted In Passing  A Russian correspondent said at New^ Yprk  that Russians and people in democratic'countries can be friends though they have different  .outlooks. Of course they can. But only on  condition that they do not let their "outlooks'*  run away with their sense of justice, fair play  and tolerance. Nations, like individuals, can  agree to differ���provided they put the emphasis  on agreeing and not on differing.  The measure of a democracy is the measure  of the freedom of its humblest citizens.  *  The darkest hour in any man's life is when  he sits down to plan how to get money without  earning it.  ....Noting the price of new hats, the Lady Next  Door is led to ask why the WPTB doesn't put  the lid on.  A dashing yoUng driver named Bill,  Drove recklessly down a steep hill.  Said he, "I'm renowned  For covering ground."  But alas, now the ground covers Bill.  "Could I see the captain of the ship?"  "He's forward, miss."  "I'm not afraid.   I'm used to men."  DOLESS McRabbit is a hare-brained Canadian  who points to the current crop of inflationary  lettuce as proof that fine browsing is produced  best by less work, more pay and the ehmination  of competition for both jobs and markets.  McRabbit is for the 30-hour week, as a means  of creating employment, but is willing to compromise at 40 hours just now. He wants the  same take-home pay for less work but he leaves  it to his over-worked wife to worry about the  keep-home pay when she goes out to buy high-  priced goods. '     ���  In general principle McRabbit is for deeper*  rabbit hples, dug by the government and protected by an ingenious economic device for  pulling the hole in when it rains. The further  underground McRabbit gets with his lettuce  the safer he feels.  McRabbit is particularly bitter agains immigration. The idea of bringing people into  Canada to work, produce and create more jobs,  until after every urban Canadian has become  prosperous by virtually doing nothing, is most  abhorrent to Doless.  In his extended leisure, made possible by  unemployment insurance which he draws because many kinds of work are unsuitable to  him, McRabbit is making an exhausting study  of the disastrous effects upon Canada of the industry and thrift of our ambitious ancestors to  whm he attributes the reactionary tendencies  of those descendants who still believe that  work, greater production, thrift and self-reli-*  ance are the means of progress.  McRabbit is opposed to any immigration. Indeed he has concluded that nothing but mass  deportation of people who occupy good jobs and  own property, will serve to open up sufficient  opportunities to keep young ambitious Canadians at home.  He would start his program of deportation  with the Scotch who hold their full share of  good jobs, many of which they created, and  whose thrift habits he considers unchangeable.  Did they and other immigrants not come to  Canada and compete with the people who were  here? Who brought the Clydesdale horses and  the Shorthorn cattle to steal the markets from  wild ponies and he buffalo? Who brought the  automobile to Canada to replace the buggy?  McRabbit never tells the story of they Scotsman who full of years and honors made a tour i  of the world and in Australia observed to his  host that wherever he had gone he had found  Scotsmen among the leaders in politics, finance,)  industry and education.    "Do you have many  Scotsmen here," he asked.   "Yes, a fair propor-i  tion,' replied the Australian, "but I think our  worst trouble is rabbits." : '  Oh Canada! j  ���The Scene.1  Smile A while  The Glasgow Rangers and Celtic football  match is always an event to stir the emotions of  the crowd, and the rivalry between the two supporting sides runs high. The Protestant vs.  Catholic element is an important factor in the  matter.  A one match a spectator loudly cheered when  Celtic scored, and threw his cap in the air.  Later, when the Rangers scored, he likewise  expressed his delight. This conduct was puzzling;  to two spectators, and one .volunteered to ask |  the reason.  "Here," he asked, "which side are you supposed to be supporting?" :(  "Oh!" replied the other,. "I'm not supporting"  any side. * I'm just here to enjoy the game."

Halfmoon Bay  Man Has Close  Call in Woods  HALF MOON BAY ��� Dick  Mosier, power saw operator  for contractors falling timber  for Mackenzie and Flavelle Ltd.  operations at Half Moon Bay,  had a very close call Monday  morning, July 29. It is understood that Dick and Eric McCartney had just fallen a tree,  which on its way down struck a  dead snag. The snag swayed  back snapping about 20 feet  of its top off. The men didn't  notice it falling until it was almost on top of thehi. Eric saw  it in time to make a mighty  leap out of the way, but Dick  didn't see it. Luckily he was  behind a stump and the snag  was very rotton. It broke into  hundreds of pieces; burying him  under them. He suffered severe  bruises over the whole of his  right side and across his back.  He was taken to St. Mary's  hospital, Garden Bay, where he  is reported to be recovering  favorably from shock and his  injuries.  By Mrs. O.

Ashby (Edmonton East): Mr. Speaker,  the solution of our problems can  be found by simplifying government.  Mr. Herridge: I should like  the hon. member in his own inimitable and fabalistic style, to  give an illustration of his simplified form of government.  Mr. Ashby: I shall be indeed  pleased to comply with the hon.  member's request.   It is a well  known fact that historians have  great difficulty in obtaining detailed  data  regarding  some  of  our early parliamentarians.    It  requires years of work, of probing into attics, cellars and archives  to  obtain  this  information.    In the first place, in the  olden days they spelled badly;  in the second place, they had no  parliamentary reporters, and in  the  third  place,   they  did  not  keep any records anyway.   But  I should like to take hon. members back to one of our early  sessions of Parliament.    There  must have been a time in past  political     history    .when     we  switched   Off   the   main   road  which by this time would have  led us into  an era  of blessed  prosperity and happiness, on to  a side trail which has brought  us into our present state of dissatisfaction   and   unrest.     We  have to  go beyond the crossroads where we turned off; we  have  to   go  beyond  the 'early  days of confederation; we have  to go beyond Westminster. _  ILLUSTRiqUS   PREMIER  I  have  in  mind  one  of  the  greatest sessions  of parliament  in British history, a session presided over, it may interest the  Minister  of  Labour   (Mr.   Mitchell) to learn, by an ancestor  of his; at least they were both  men   of.   Sussex.     I   refer,   of  course, to that illustrious prime  minister, the most potent of .-all  potentates, his high and mighty  self   the   Right   Honorable   Sir  Bonehead Piltdown, whose thick  but noble skull was discovered  buried in the gravel of the Sussex downs where for thousands  of years, in death as in life, it  defied all comers, the forces of  nature, the elements and time  itself, to emerge .at last triumphant    and    again . become    a  world-known characer.  his pericranium. I can see that  great man make up his mind  and give a few lusty scratches  on the floor of his cave with his  great feet, sending bits of bones  and small stones clattering in  the general direction of his  wives, and testing the thongs  which bound a five-pound rock  to the end of his knobkerrie;  then, girding about his loins an  Aberdeen sporran, stride forth  to parliament in all his glory,  just as the bell rang. I can  visualize that great prime minister smite with his stone hammer his official boulder which  he used as an altar, calling the  assembled members of parliament to order. .���  his supporters were still standing there, said in a clear voice,  "The people demand that all  taxation on incomes of $2,000  for married persons and $1,500  for single persons be immediately abolished; with no increase  in {he price of goods and no lessening of services . . ." and he  collapsed into the amis of his  staunch and loyal supporters  who held him up on his feet.  WILSON CREEK  MRS. P. ERICKSON  wm  wmm  3>  SESSION  I can picture a brief session of  parliament in that period, when  they were not . bothered with  figures of billions and billions  and billions, but just went about  their business in a natural way.  I can visualize the members of  parliament in committee. I can  visualize the prime minister  himself walking up and down  the floor of his apartment as  he pondered the perplexing  problems   that .weue   probing  GIBSONS LANDING  At Your Service for  ROOFING ��� RUMPUS ROOMS  REPAIRS  REMODELING ��� REBUILDING  EAVES TROUGHS INSTALLED  GREAT SPEECH  If hon. members will permit  me, I should like to quote the  whole   of   his   speech   at   that  time.   I could quote from almost  any   Hansard,    because    every  great prime minister from that  day  to   this   has   repeated- the  same address.    Qur own Prime  Minister spoke to us last December 13, I think it was, or about  then, on the same subject.   The  address was: "Members of parliament  are  here  to  represent  the   people   of   their   constituencies."    That is all there .was  to it; brevity was his keynote.  In other words, it was not really  a speech at all but a warning  that   members    of -parliament  should attend; to ,ytheir business,  which is not "making long and  windy speeches.    If I may distress for just a moment, I have  learned why ,we come here and  sit around month after month,  accomplishing   nothing.     It   is  because whenever a problem is  brought before us we immediately make up,all the words we  possible    can,    assemble   them  into lengthy speeches and com-  . pletely, bury the pro plem under  ah avalanche of words.    Then,  when we can not longer see the  problem before us,.wego on to  the next one.  Turning   to   the   pages   the  prime minister said, "Open the  doors.   Bring in the deputy ministers;"    The doors were open-  i ed.    * The    pojipeman    outside  could be plainly heard saying,  "Right! Right! Right!" You will  notice, Mr. Speaker, there were  no  leftist  movements, in those  days.   .In inarched the deputy  ministers..    "Halt!"    The  doors  were closed behind them.    The  prime  minister  then  delivered  his usual -speech; facing them,  he said in a stern voice, "Hear  ye!"  Thai's all-   No sooner had  he   utiered   those   words   than  the   deputy   ministers   cupped  both  hands-^behind  their  ears.  No   . excuses    were    accepted;  either they heard what was said,  or the prime .minister found it  necessary to send his knobkerrie  to the cleaners.   Next the prime  minister turned to the members  of  parliament   and   asked   this  simple question:  "What results  do   the   people   desire?"  -They  should  know;  they  are representing the people,    There was  a little. commotion; finally one  member   was   pushed   to   the  front, and then and there gained  the  honorable  title  of YMr.  Speaker,   a  custom   which  has  been followed to this day; and  -Mr; Speaker stood up and said���  An hon.

BARRETT  IN VANCOUVER a story is current about a young lady from  Vancouver Island. We shall call  her Sylvie. She is fond of dogs,  cats, birds, goldfish and practically all creatures that are not  vicious or exceptionally repulsive.  One day while visiting the  famous Stanley Park, the beaded bag she had was one of Syl-  vie's treasures. It was a work  of art from Mexico. Some of the  beads on it were infinitesimally  small, some were as large as  marbles.  Sylvie was as thrilled as anyone by the beauty of the park  and of Lost Lagoon imprisoned  like a jewel in its setting. But  she got a greater personal thrill  when two impudent and spoiled  chip-munks appeared before the  bench on which she was sitting  and, though other persons tried  to coax them with tidbits, the  chip-munks singled this girl  from Vancouver Island out for  attention. That delighted her so  sheiet her beloved bead bag lie  in her lap so she could use both  hands to coax and pet the chipmunks.  However, after being in her  lap for a moment each would  hop down and scamper away,  only to come back as if fascinated, a moment later. Other persons tried to coax them away  but they came back to Sylvie,  time after time.  "I simply can't explain it,"  Sylvie said, after each chipmunk had paid her about its  seventh visit. A hot-dog mooch-  er came up as she was speaking  and chuckled. "Look at that  beaded bag of yours, madam,"  he suggested. "That may give  you the answer."  The young lady from Vancouver Island looked and groaned.  All the large heads had vanished from the beaded bag. The  chip-munks had been taking  them away, probably mistaking  them for nuts.  visiting in Vancouver for a few  weeks.  * *���   *  Miss  Iola   King  is   presently  employed at the cafe in Gibsons.

So, artists  of the kitchen, we must still  carry on getting meals of low*  ration coupon value.  With the canning season here  sugar seems the worst problem.  The' use of fresh fruit in deserts  is a help. Oranges just now  though not very large seem extra juicy and their sweet juice  is a big help in fruit salads. Cut  into small pieces add cubes of  grapefruit, watermellon, cante-  loupe, fresh peaches and bananas, al of which are plentiful  just now. Top with whipped  cream and you have a very attractive tempting dessert with  the use of little or no sugar.  Whipped cream you say is off  the market. In a local store  they have small bottles of Shur-  whip which assures whipped  cream from ordinary cream.  The merchant tells us that satisfied customers repeat orders  for this.  A housewife faced with a  "sweet-tooth" husband tells me  that she makes milk puddings  and custards, in the usual way,  except that she uses only half  the required sugar and then just  before removing from the stove  adds a few drops of a well-  known brand of artificial sweet- :  ener. Another lady we know,  canned many quarts of rasp-  berires successfully using half  sugar and half sweetener. So  much for sugar savers for this  time.  "Mamma what can I do?" 'is  that  question  put  to  you  frequently?   It   is   no   use  saying  "Oh, go look at your books or  play with your  toys,"  because  the   question   implies   that   the  child has looked at all the books,  played with all the toys, and is  just  bored,  as you and  I  get,  doing the same things over and  over again.  All of us remember  thinking or reading about things  interesting for ourselves or the  children, but at the moment we  were  too  busy  and  so  it was  forgotten.  Let us help the children and these ideas to get together with  a  WHAT  TO  DO  BOX. Every time you hear or  see something, put it in a bojc,  and the next time your child is  bored, hand him the box and see  just what he does with it.  Suggest to him that he himself watch for things in papers  or books and add them to the  collection of "things to do'*. For  example, in a recent child's book  (and there are many good ones  on the market that have far  more interest than these trashy,  so-called funnies) there was a  little puppet to cut out and put  together. The next rainy evening my little daughter (with  some help) put it together. Not  only did she get fun doing it,  but she still gets fun playing  with it.  Why does the rabbit have a  shiny nose? Because its powder  puff is on the other end.
