Array GIBSONS ��� LANDING ��� Mr.  James Fletcher, oiir oldest  pioneer, celebrated his eighty-  ninth birthday here recently.  Mr. Fletcher came to Gibsons  soon aftei- Lieutenant George  ^Gibson landed and gave the  locality its name. During the  early years he logged with  horses and oxen, a great deal  of the flat west of the school  and south of the Sechelt highway. Later he homesteaded the  block of land /west of what is  now the Pratt road, and constructed a store and post office  , building beside what had been  a main ski-road. The living  quarters still stand, occupied  now by Mr. and,Mrs. Porteous.  For many years Mr. Fletcher  served on the local school board.  Always a keen hunter iri days  gone by, Mr. Fletcher still  coaxes his youngest son, Phil, to  go hunting with him and, despite the fact that he is coasting  along towards ninety, he means  it, and could do it.

Gibsons Offers Neighborly  Welcome tolt'sNeY/comers  GIBSONS seemss to be in the  hews these days. Ernest Walter in his "Before the Magistrate" column in the Vancouver  Province, tell of his recent visit  there:  "Shoved off to Gibsons Landing the other day to use up  some of my days off I'd been  Ky;.sayhigk? plus yya couple of Siin-  |Jp|||��jj||^ ���  $fM^M^^M^MMf!^.' ���������������'-���"   |;y:yj*fe*^ahding^  doing a lot of sawing ahd chopping wbod, fig h ti n-g with  stumps in the front yard, and  wrestling with logs on the  beach.  "lyfind it good to go to Gibsons Landing, to puff and blow.  Gibsons Landing is probably  the best place in British Columbia in which to puff and  blow. Its ;.��� old tree stumps and  logs on the beach have a special  quality? about them, designed, I  am sure, for the purpose of  making one puff and blow.  "My doctor tells me it is good  for me to puff and blow. : He  says it is -good for the diaphragm, good for leg and should  der muscles, good for my lungs,  oh account, of making me  breathe deep, and inhaling  large quantities of oxygen.

On it is a dolly, attached to a capstan at the top.  All I had to do was to pull the  cockleshell to the skids, secure  it to the dolly, and there, on the  cliff's summit, was George  Marsden, tramping round and  round on the capstan bar, and  up  went the boat.    There she  yiras,, safe^ and  sound,   for  the  [tiib&-'^0:S)?zy&SiZ z^tiyj^-yyzt.F'zz ���:.-  M stronglysu^^i^wnen he  is albhe^ he sings a sea chanty  as he trudges round with the  bar.  "That is just one of the kindly,  friendly acts that Gibsons Landing folks do for their newcom-  ing neighhors. They extend the  right hand of fellowship.  "George Marsden first went  to Gibsons 28 years ago. Where  he is now settled, was? rough  country in those days. He told  me that when he built his house  there he towed in all his rough  timbers, loaded the finer stuff  on the boat, and then packed  the whole business up the cliff.  "It was holiday days then, for  him, his wife and family. There  were no roads, only bush trails;  they packed in their supplies,  and water came from a spring.  "He has been living there permanently for the past ten years  and still active, though well past  the   allotted  span,   serving   his  Get: out  and ��� saw your   ruddy    community,  wood/ ^ ;.       -;: < Mt3r- '- -1-  ; y So -j" got put and sawed they  adjective wood, 7? and thereby;,.  cast out a devils    ' " t"  i "All of which reminds me of  George Ay Marsden, one of the  ypionieers of Gibsons Lahdihg.  ;.; "I tvas^yiopking* for a place to  hide my cpckleshell of a boat for  they coming whiter.

More stuff for the diaphragm.  More oxygen More leg and,  shoulder work.  "Not so with George Marsden.  He has been wise in his genera-  'He is chairman, of the school  board, a district which reaches  to Pender Harbor, is on the  board of xthe Elphinstone^ Cooperative, and. was fot a time  active in the church choir.  (That's; why I think he sings  sea chanties when alone.)     ,  "One would think that would  be- activity enough.   But no. He  has two or three lots, opposite  his. own residence, which he has  fjdfe��redj:.. andy^is: preparing  the  :lahd>for>a-fvegetable garden.  "The last I. saw of, George  Marsden, bronzed, trim and ^upright, he was toiling in his field,  burning up the 'Ja^t' of the roots  the bulldozer hWleft.   y  "Next spring it will be a  garden; where 'instead of the  thorn shalPcome up the fir-tree,  and instead of the brier shall  come up the myrtle tree'."  "George Marsden is the prototype of hundreds of others  throughout British Columbia,  who in their retiring days, help  in building and serving their  communities."  WHERE does a Victorian Order  nurse go when she goes on  duty?  To begin with, before she begins her day's calls, she packs  her kit of supplies and medicines, checks her file of patients  and calls the doctors for latest  instructions.  Now she's on her way and her  first call may be to an aged  Chinese, a diabetic who is receiving insulin. She gives his  treatment but at the same time  she is teaching him to administer it himself. He does'nt speak  English well, but he is cooperative and soon won't need  the nurse so often.  Her next visit is to the mother  of a new baby. She has brought  his new formula from the doctor. She gives the baby his bath  and at the same time teaches  his mother how to care for him:  The nurse will call daily for a  short time, but soon less often, -  just to weigh him and see that  he's well.  On from there, the V.O.N, will  visit a factory foreman ill with  the'flu. He gets a bed bath but  at ythe, same    time -the   nurse  won't catch cold so often if he  heeds her advice.  And so through the day, the  nurse will make at least 10 calls,  administering treatments and  teaching.  Some of the patients pay fees  for this care, levied at cost.  Others, who income is low pay  part and some pay nothing at  all. In some cases insurance  companies pay the fees.  This is just a brief glimpse  into the dail^ life of the Victorian Order of Nurses. Emergency calls, too, are answered  swiftly. But��� if the nurse calls  first, a doctor will be called to  direct her "work.  In Vancouver, during the  first seven months of this year,  the V.O.N, made 28,000 visits  and cared for 5,000 persons.  Half of these were mothers  and babies and the other half  included medical cases, surgical, chronically ill, communicable diseases and health supervision. Pre-natal classes are  held for groups of young women.  Every nurse in the order holds  a public health diploma. The  Vancouver branch has 20 nurses  and seven cars.  Throughout Canada there,are  103 branches and 450 nurses.  The program varies according  to the needs of the community..  It7 does not overlap other^ser--  ���Vices. '-��� ".:" .-���'������     z.-rz''''&z*y'y  The national annual report-  for 1945 shows that .50 per cent  of the visits- ^ere free, 22 per  cen^ were fully paid, 18 per  cent were partly paid and 10  per cent were insurance visits.  > The Victorian Order provides  a 24Thour service for rich or  poor.  The Vancouver branch is a  member. ��of the Community  Chest for Greater Vancouver.  Community Chest donations  help the V.O.N, to maintain and  raise the health standards of the  community.  V.O.N. SERVICE  NEEDS MUCH  FINANCIAL HELP  V.O.N. NURSING services started in the peninsula district  in July, 1938, after considerable  effort on the part of residents  and of the Howe Sound Farmers' Institute. This culminated  in an enthusiastic meeting in  Gibsons Landing, at which the  decision was made to incorporate a nursing service to be  known as the V.O.N., Elphinstone Branch.  . Miss Lillian Wooding was the  first nurse. Her area covered  about 20 miles," from Williamson's Landing to West Sechelt.  At present Miss Betty Short is  in charge.  The volume, of work is stupendous, including school nurse  duties, bedside visits, baby clinics and innumerable tasks of a  similar nature. Its cost runs in  excess of $3,000 per year, part  of which comes from government grants. The remainder  must come- from memberships  -ahct^^i^ta^  lie-spirited eitiz&hs.  HALFMOON BAY.���The ratepayers' meeting scheduled for  Wednesday, October 23rd in the  Halfmoon Bay school house was  a failure, only about three people turned out for the meeting.  This will, no doubt, go down in  the history of Halfmoon Bay as  being the smallest attendance  for any meeting. The lack of  interest may have been caused  by the rain the evening of the  meeting. The reason for the  meeting was to talk over matters concerning the school and  also to elect a school representative to attend a meeting some  time in November at Gibsons  Landing where representatives  of each school in the Sechelt  school district will gather to  elect ytrustees for a new term.  It is understood that Thomas  Beasley was chosen by Mr. V.  Manning, school inspector, to  represent the Halfmoon Bay  School.  WINS CONSOLATION  PRIZE IN CITY  JINGLE CONTEST  MRS. D. M. Callum, c/o The  Moorings, St. Mary's Hospital,  Garden Bay, was winner of a  consolation prize in a contest  sponsored by a Vancouver men's  wear store to find a suitable  QingTe*,forT their*^d^erfMh& iShe  won a $2 tie.  In Welcome Pass .  G  rew Saved When  Fishboat Capsizes  HALFMOON BAY. ���The fishing seiner Keranina turned  over below Pender Harbour,  Tuesday, October 22, in the  storm which lashed the coast  the early part of last week, but  her crew were rescued by another fish boat  The Keranina is owned and  skippered by Martin Warnock,  and the fish boat Varhalm,  owned by Ed Warnock, happened to be nearby at the time.  Full details of the Keranina  mishap have not yet been  learned here,' but it is understood that her crew had a narrow brush with death. Somehow, as the seiner turned over,  the crew managed to get a  dinghy into the water and  scrambled into it.  The Varholm, nearby, sped to  the scene and removed the  Keranina's crew to shore, but  the latter boat's skipper remained in, the dinghy until the  tug Sea Swell, which reached  the scene, vto^fhisi^essel in tow,.  and pulledKh%;upside down into  Halfmoon Bay.     -  Thermometer Skids  At October's End  HIGHEST October temperature  on the peninsula, as recorded by L. C. Porteous at the corner of Pratt Road and Sechelt  Highway, was 64 degrees, on  October 8th. Minimum was 30  degrees, on the 15th, 16th and  26th, and 27 degrees on the 27th.  Rain totalled 4.21 inches in  nine days.  Repair Crew  On Grantham  Wharf Now  GRANTHAMS LANDING���All  .passenger, mail and freight service at Granthams Landing has  been discontinued until further  notice. A repair gang is at work  on the ramp tearing out old  wood and replacements made of  heavy cross beams and stringers. .   -  These men, under Otto Geirsh,  sure know their.business and to  watch them handle and fit those  heavy timbers in place seems a  simply operation. When the  job is completed Granthams  Wharf will be in shape to handle *  the Gibsons Landing traffic  while that wharf is being ire-  built. There are always the interested bystanders at a job like  this and I overheard one of them  ask Otto if there would be any  firewood and quite seriously he  was told to write Ottawa for a  War Assets application form  and fill in an dreturn, and if he  got a permit he could have the  chips if there were any left.

Stewart  BRITTANIA TOWNSITE���The  week starting October 21,  saw Brittania mine gradually  re-opening after having been  closed by a strike of its employees a little better than  three and a half months ago.  A new contract has been  signed by the company and the  union, based on the recommendations of Commissioner Sloan.  Included in the contract are  wage increases of 14 Vze for  miners and timber men and  12%c.an hour for the balance  of the employees.  Because the 44-hour week is  not practical under the three  shift operation, alternating work  weeks of 40 hours and 48 hours  have "��� been instituted.

PA. 3348  DESPERATE efforts of crewmen and captains of two tugboats to revive Archie McVicar,  . of 2104 York St., Vancauver,  first mate of the tug "Chieftain,"  who fell overboard near Yucla-  taw Rapids last night, failed  after three and one half hours  of unceasing artificial respiration. Dr. O. O. Lyons, Powell  River, accompanied to the scene  by Constable Wyngarten, pronounced the man dead at 7.25  p.m.  The accident occurred at 4.10  p.m. yesterday afternoon just  as the Chieftain eniierged from  the Yuclataw Rapids in front of  Staurt Island, about 45 miles  north of Powell River.  McVicar was seen falling  overboard by the Chinese cook  as he was going aft to extend  the , towline which had been  shortened during the tr_fcp  through the rapids. Captain  John Jamieson, too, heard the  splash and immediately brought  the tug astern.  Assisted by Hugh Graham,  the captain pulled McVicar in  at the end of a pike pole which  McVicar grasped when it was  extended to him. When he was  pulled aboard, McVicar was  alive but could not speak.  The man was place on the engine room grating and artificial  respiration was immediately  applied.  Eric Granger, of 1446 East  41st, and George Swanson, 5015  Prince Albert Street, Vancouver, were enlisted from the tug  "Active" which was also towing  nearby, to assist in resusicating  the victim. Both are experienced first-aid men.  In the meantime radio messages had been sent to Campbell River and^ Cape Lazo in an  effort to get medical aid. Powell  River police received both calls  arid despatched Constable Wyngarten and Doctor O. O. Lyons  to the scene in Ed. Larsen's  speedboat.  The tug Active took the  Chieftain's tow while the Chieftain  proceeded   towards   Lund.  HALF MOON BAY  MRS. R.

IT IS EVIDENT from early reports that the sale of the Canada Savings Bond is meeting  steady response. It bears out  conviction that thrift is one of  the sturdiest fibres in Canadian  character. As was to be expected however, sales agencies  report widely differing experiences in talking to potential customers. One question that seems  to come up relates to the interest paid by the new security.  "Why 2% per cent?" people ask.  "Why ���nbt three per cent?"  It may be that these questions  are prompted by some misunderstanding of the purpose of  the Canada Savings Bond. The  name itself provides a simple  clue to this purpose. The new  security is intended solely as a  convenient form of personal  savings, and in comparison to  other forms of saving, has much  to recommend it.. The safety  provided by the backing of the  nation's resources, plus the feature of immediate redemption  at 100 cents on the dollar is an  attractive combination in any,  security., Coupled with these  features, the rate of 2% per  cent is a fair return, and is not  approached by other comparable  forms of saving or investment  available today.

THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.  Friday, November 1, 1946  Texada Narratives  LONG BEFORE the bright leaves scurry along  the sidewalks, the streets are filled with moving color  ��� reds  and  yellows,  bright blues,  greens.  They gather in clusters,  as leaves or  flowers often do.    They drift as in a gentle  breeze all in one general direction.   They make  a river that cannot.flow unruffled long; there  are eddies  and whirls and sudden diversions  from the course, as when a gust scatters drifting  foliage, or a stone shatters the quiet of a stream.  Every morning, from Monday through Friday, they make a kaleidoscope in the post-office  square/ streaming on again toward the school  yard, impelled by something as invisible as the  autumn wind, and apparently as inconsistent.  No town quite comes to life until fall brings  its children home, with their sweaters, dresses,  and coats of many colors. Down the oak-vaulted streets they go, and under the maples on  the avenue, while the bright morning sunlight  sends searching shafts down between the still-  green branches.   "This color, and this," the light  seems to hint, "is what the well-dressed tree  will soon be wearing."  The Teen Town Case  IT IS POSSIBLE that by this time the Gibsons  Landing School Board will have reconsidered  its. rental charges for the school hall. We hope  they have, and these few observations may be  out-dated.  If they have not, we feel that the Teen  Towners, of all groups in a community, have  pre-eminence in their request for a lower  rental. We in the newspaper business know  only too well the dangers and the expense of  making an exception to any group, no matter  how worthy. But we do make one exception,  and that is to youth activities which are not  operated lor profit.  The proposed $5 rental fee is the same as  that charged for profit-making entertainments,  such as the picture show. It seems that the  teenagers have a case in pointing this out.  It is true that certain charges go on just the  same to the school board, but in the final  analysis it is the taxpayer���the parent���who  foots the bill. And we think there will be  none of these ; Who; would * see much sense in  taking a quarter out of one pocket, giving it  to the kids for a night at teentown, and then  gutting it back in the other pocket as rental  received.  The teenagers, we are sure, would accept  responsibility for damage, and would do their  own janitoring. If they would do this, we feel  sure that the School Board would be safe from  any charges of favoritism, inasmuch as the  value of youthful activities of the splendid nature of Teen Towns leave nothing to be desired  in keeping young folks from the streets.  Those who have the least selfishness have the  best material for being happy.���Mme. Sigour-  ney.  DESPITE the higher cost of living, most Powell  Riverites are earning something more than  they have to spend for current needs.  The cars, homes, equipment, for which we  made extra efforts to save money during the  war are not yet available. The age of plenty  has not arrived yet. There is no indication as  to when the long-expected "flood" of done-  without things will come on the market.  This being the case, the person who saved  through the war years for some specific purpose may just as well go on saving. The alternative is to waste. The one who saves in hope  of building up a reserve fund for future need  has of course the same incentive now that he  had while the battles were raging. Perhaps as  he looks over the production scene and the field  of international politics the incentive will be  even stronger than it was then.        s  The experiment in wartime savings certificates- showed /that a,multitude, of people appreciated���and used���the opportunity to drop into  a bank each month or so and buy one of these  securities. They will react in the same way  if the new savings bonds are made purchase-  able over the counter whenever one happens to  have some spare cash on hand.

A FAMILIAR figure strolls frequently through the buildings  and along the roadway past the  "glory-hole" of Blubber Bay's  lime plant. The same figure  might be found at other times  hiking miles through Texada's  second growth over a trail that  few besides himself could discern. Again the same figure is  a familiar passenger on the coast  boats that ply between Texada  Island and Vancouver.  Walter Planta's life has been  colorful. He has touched many  ports in his travels. He has accumulated, a, variety of, infpronation. Throughout his < eventful  years he has clung to one love���  that of mining. His mining  experiences added to his acquired knowledge, have given value  to the advice sought from him.  Born in Australia, Walter  Planta was nine years old when  he arrived with his family in  Nanainio. Keenly alert, the  growing boy grew interested in  that city's chief industry. In  fact, when scarcely out of school  he and some friends took a  whirl at the coal game. They  set up a small operation near  Nanaimo to bore for coal. Shale  gas blew up the derrick, necessitating the erection of a new  gallows frame. Funds ran out  before the party' found any  quantity of coal.  Texada Island, across the  straits from Nanaimo, beckoned  irresistibly. The nineties found  the name of Walter Planta associated with mineral claims on  the Gulf Island. He worked  with Jim Raper on the Victoria  mine near Kirk Lake. He discovered the Marjorie where a  pocket of free gold netted him  close to five thousand dollars.  With money in his pocket Mrv  Planta hastened to Seattle, returning with a pretty, young  bride.  Restlesness and f an adventurous spirit set him astir in 1899  and 1900 when he accompanied  the lieutenant-governor to Atlin, acting as private secretory.  While there he met an official  of the White Pass and Yukon  Railway Company.

Plans called for a  magazine, "The Northern Light,"  full of illustrated information  concerning the northern areas,  and a personally conducted  campaign in Canadian and  American cities, complete with  dog team and sluice boxes. Insufficient backing forced the  scheme out.  In 1907 fate again intervened  in Mr. Planta's life when it  seemed as though a lime venture was about to bring him  success. He opened a quarry,  but an uncontrollable delay of  several days in delivering the  lime, lost him his hard-won  contract and ended the venture.  In 1909 his workings were taken  over by a large firm whose  plant is still expanding.  Today it is still Walter Planta  who can take one to any old or  new prospect on Texada Island.  Every foot is familiar ground  to him, He it is who can tell  the history of the mines. Although he spends part of his  time in Vancouver, he can't  give up the island that has become part of his very life and  being. He still loves to roam  the island and talk about its  past and its future.  "A rose for every precious  year of your life," read the card  enclosed with an order for two  dozen flowers, the young man's  birthday gifts to his fiancee.

SIR JOHN Boyd Orr, 66, independent member of parliament for the Scottish universities, rector of Glasgow Universities, a practising farmer and  director-general of the United  Nations food and agriculture organization, could, his friends  say, be traced around the world  by the hats he forgets.  Thin, long-nosed and intent,  Sir John always gives the impression of having no time fbir  trifles like hats. In the 12  months since he was named  F.A..O. director-general at Quebec he has left half a dozen  behind in various countries, the  last in Copenhagen where plans  for a world food board were referred to an international commission for action. This in spite  of the watchfulness of Lady  Orr and his staff.  The award of the Scottish universities seat usually is taken  as a tribute to the scholastic  knowledge, scientific attainments or public service of a  candidate more than as a measure of his skill in political affairs.  Sir John says he must give up  his seat and devote all his time  to F.A.O.  Sir John's next appointment  probably will be to the chiltern  hundreds where he will become  a steward of one of the manors  in the gift of the crown. By accepting an office under the  crown he will be unable to continue longer as a M.P. and follows the traditional course of a  retiring British M.P.

According to present plans,  the assembly will discuss atomic  problems only in considering  the report of Secretary-General  Trygve Lie.  This report merely outlines  the "progress" yof the atomic  energy commission. Even the  members of the commission admit that, up to the moment, their  "progress" has been negligible.  The tremendously important  work of the security council's  military staff committee likewise is excluded from the assembly's agenda, except insofar  as the secretary-general's report  touches upon it.  WORLD POLICE FORCE  Incidentally, something now  can be disclosed of the efforts of  this committee to reach an  agreement regarding the establishment of an international  police force which would serve  as the enforcement arm of the  security council.  For 10 months, representatives  of the chiefs of staff of the  United States, Great Britain,  France, Russia, and China have  sought in closed sessions the  best way of setting up the first  "world army" in history on an  equitable basis. They have  taken into consideration geography, logistics and the military potential of the various  powers in order to reach some  sort of arrangement whereby  quotas could be established.  According to authoritative accounts, however,- this-effort has -  been nullified in a large measure  by the refusal of the Soviet military representatives to agree to  the allocation of specific military forces in advance of any  crisis in which the use of force  might be considered advisable.  BASIS FOR SOVIET STAND  In other words, the Russians  have refused to say, "we'll give  Yso many men and so many guns  to an international police force."  Why have the Russians acted  this way?  Best opinion here is that the  Russian stand has been dictated  mainly by political motives.  The   American   military   staff  committee  delegation,  if firsthand information is to be credited,  has  urged  the  drafting of  blueprints    for    a    permanent  police   force   which   would   be  ready to intervene immediately  after  the security council  had  ordered it to do so.   Most of the  other  nations  apparently  have  backed up this view.  But not Russia.  The   Russians,   according   to  available information, insist, that  plans   for   the   organization   of  an  international military force  should be made only after the  security    council   has    decided s  that   military   intervention    is '  essential.  In other words, Russia wants  to offer its services as soon as  the security  council sends  out  an SOS.  RUSSIAN ARMS "SPHERE"  With its large military forces  in Europe, the Middle East, and  the Far East, Russia would thus  be in a position to "keep order"  in its own "sphere of influence"  while excluding other major  powers.  It might be well to consider at  this point that Russia still has  the world's largest ground  forces. Even though it turned  thumbs down on the American  scheme to organize an international police force, Russia would  be in a position to speed punitive forces to any trouble spot  on an instant's notice.  Or to put it another way:  If the American plan were rejected, Russia alone probably  would be the predominant military power in Europe and might  also hold that position in the  Middle East.  It is generally agreed here  that, if the security council is to  be the instrument for maintaining peace the U.N.'s founders  envisaged, some way should be  found to circumvent this Russian stand.  Most of the non-Russian members of the military staff committee hope the assembly will  take it upon itself to inquire  more deeply into the committee's work.  Only if this is done, it is said,  will the way be opened for the  security council to enforce its  decisions on a truly international basis.���By Homer Metz in  The Christian Science Monitor.

Friday, November 1, 1946  Address at Hammond  re sen  BEFORE an attentive audience  in Hammond recently, Mr.  H. Gargrave, C.C.F. M.L.A.  for Mackenzie gave an interesting address on the current labor  situation and on C.C.F. policy  generally.  The general industrial picture,  said   Mr.   Gargrave,   was   anything but hopeful for although  the steel strike had been settled  many   thousands   of   Canadian  workers    in    other    industries  were still on strike.  The strike  was a weapon only used as a  last resort,  Mr.  Gargrave said,  and   although   the   papers   had  featured  industrial  disputes  very    prominently    in    recent  months hundreds of thousands  of workers had arrived at agreements with their employers by  peaceful means and had signed  collective   bargaining   agreements.   There are certain types  of   employers   in   this   country  who refuse right up to the end  to grant workers justifiable increases and the result is usually  a strike. With the cost of living  constantly   rising   the   workers  find its necessary to receive increased returns and it is unfortunate  but  true  that  in  some  cases this can only be accomplished by a strike.  One way in which a lot of  these disputes could be settled  in Mr. Gargrave's opinion was  through a proper recognition of  labor's right to their own form  of organization, by industry  wide agreements and by the re-  LOW   RAIL  FARES   FOR  DAY  MONDAY, NOV.  11  Between all Stations in  Canada  One-Way Fare  and One-Quarter  For Round Trip  (Minimum Fare 25c)  GOING:  12:00 NO.ON NOVEMBER S to  2:00 P.M.

Mr.  Porteous states on leaving that  he  has  enjoyed^ living  in this  locality  very  much.    He  feels  that with the right foresight and  initiative   from   a   few willing  members, the Sechelt peninsula  has prospects of a bright future.

Jules (Joe) Schutz  of the Gibsons Shell station, is  the first agent. Following ^the  redeeoration of the station's* interior, Joe plans to stock a full  line of Shell products, including  household cleansers and polishes. With the arrival last  week of a 1944 two-ton Chevrolet truck the agency is how  equipped to deliver stove oil to  its customers without delivery-  charges, and to carry bulk gasoline to any retail Shell stations  that may spring up qn the  peninsula. One prospect of such  a retail station is at the home  of Otto Bahgerter, on the  Sechelt highway.

Mr. Way, who is  now publisher of "The Canadian  Weekly Editor," a magazine devoted to weekly newspapers  across Canada, delivered the address, which is reproduced herewith, before the advertising and  sales section of the Vancouver  board:  *    *    *  "The country editor."

You axe invited to see our  complete stock.  Mrs. J. Clay, Pn>p.  will go back to your offices this  afternoon with a little better  understanding of just why the  country editor does mean a  ^reat; deal to your businesses���  to" your city���to your province  ahd to the nation at large.  Let me quote the remarks of  a Saturday Evening Post editor  'who says that if be wishes to  gain first hand knowledge of  what people are thinking or doing, he turns to the weekly press  . \ .again, the editor of the.  Regina Leader-Post had this tp  say: "People who do business  throughout' the province and  men occupying public positions,  would do well to pay closer attention to what they can read  in the weekly newspapers.  Grass roots knowledge is a  mighty valuable thing to have  j>  Our own premier, the Hon.  John Hart, told me last year  that he, reads the weeklies of  B.C. in order to learn how and  what the people of the country  are thinking and doing.  You know, big city politicians  do a lot of prating about democracy, but the men who are really  doing something about it are  the country editors. For the  country editor deals in fundamentals ... he knows what he's  writing about because of his  very personal and intimate  touch with the grass roots people and the grass roots problems  of his community and the country.  "SOFT" LIFE  Big city newspapermen . . .  labor under an illusion about  the life of a country editor. I've  had them say to me, "You  weekly editors sure lead a soft  life. All you do is get out a  paper on Wednesday and then  go fishing the rest of the week  . . ." It all sounds very nice,  but, brother, it's just a wild  dream. Far from having a soft  life, the country editor is just  about the longest and hardest  working man in this country.  He works longv and hard not  only for the good of his own  business, but for the good of his  community, for the good of his  province and for the good of  Canada.  You!d understand more readily what I mean if you were to  go out and spend a day or a  week on a country newspaper.  You'd soon find that the country editor's  day is filled from  early morning till late at night  with the many and varied problems of his community.  For instance, he starts out to the shop  on Monday morning figuring he  has a clear day ahead of him  . . . and just as he settles down  to   business,   the   phone   rings.  Maybe it's the town  clerk,  or  the Board  of Trade secretary,  or the secretary of some other  local  organization.   The  editor  can't skip the meeting because  he's usually the most important  man there ... in addition to  being  editor,   he's  usually the  mayor, a councillor or president  of the Board of Trade or one or  more associations.   I could tell  you of one actual case where  the local editor was the chairman of 13 commiimty organizations at one andlhe sa&o time.  He's that oh^ingcha^ they refer   to   wheri   ^ey^ s_ry   '*Left  George dp it"���and,  for some  unknown reason* pbopfQemge  does it.  His busy day goes on throughput the week right up to Saturday night. I almostl forgot���  somehow during the week he  manages to find the time to get  out his paper and manage his  business. Oh yes, being a good  citizen, the editor takes his  family to church on Sunday  . . . but the poor guy doesn't get  any good :out of it because he's  so tired he sleeps right through  . the sermon. ,;. ._  ENVIABLE RECORD      ^*  It might; interest you to know  that there are 61 weekly newspapers in YB..C., compared: with  only nine dailies. And I'm proud  to say that B. C. weeklies are  recognized as the most progressive in Canada. For several  years they've won the lion's  share of awards in the annual  competitions across C an a d a  sponsored by their national  association (Canadian Weekly  Newspapers Association). And  you may have read in the daily  papers the other day that once  again our B. C. weeklies led the  field in the whole dominion. I  think you'll agree that this  record is one of which British  Columbians may well feel  proud.  As one who has lived out in  the country for a number of  years and then returned to the  city, I think that the greatest  indictment against the city is  that its people are too wrapped  up in the rush and bustle and  commercialism of city life to  stop and realize one important  thing . . . and that is that the  city is dependent upon the country towns and villages for its  continued progress.  This fact is all the more apparent when we look at the national scene. Did you ever stop  to realize where Canada's population lives? According to the  last Dominion census, out of  Canada's total population of 12  million people (in round figures) only five million live in  cities of over 10,000 population.  The remaining seven million-���  or 62 per cent of the total population of Canada-���live in the  small towns served by Canada's  800-odd weekly newspapers.  These are the people who buy  the goods you manufacture or  distribute.   These are.the grass  roots people who buy your goods  to the tune of nearly two billion  dollars a year.   These  are the  people   who   help   so  much to  make a big city big.  Too often  do  we forget this,  too.   I cite  these figures just to emphasize  that the country newspaper is  an important institution in the  lives of over seven million Canadians., These millions of Canadians depend upon their local  hometown paper, not only for  the  news  of their  community  and for  advertising news,  but  they  depend  upon  their  local  paper for the  country editor's  guidance on important local and  national issues.  Their community paper is something that lives  with them throughout the week.  And  while  they may disagree  with their editor's opinions, to  them their local power is gospel  . . . which brings to mind the  story of the bachelor editor who  lives at a boarding house.  One  morning at breakfast his landlady argued with him that the  weather had not been conducive to a good potato crop.  The  editor, differed; he argued that  all indications pointed to a bumper crop.   That day he rang a  story  in  his  paper  predicting  that   a   bumper   potato   crop  would be harvested.   When he  sat down to dinner that evening,  his landlady apologized to him.  When he asked, "Why are you  apologizing to me?" she replied,  "I'm  sorry  I  was so  stubborn  this morning;  I was wrong.   I  see in the paper that we'll have  a bumper crop . . ."  STEADYING INFLUENCE  Unlike his brothers of the city  press,!, the, country editor" deals  ..with his. readers ,ih a very per-'-  . sonal way ....," and that explains  the tremendous influence and  force of the country press in  the life of our nation. The  country editor is-a human being  who writes about men, women  children and things that he  knows. He shares the confi-  dence of his readers and he believes that the Ten Command^-  ments and the Golden Rule  have neither been repealed, improved upon nor modified by  modern advances. Country  newspapers do not succumb to  false isms. The country editor,  because of his close and personal touch with the grass roots  people and their problems, is  human enujgh to share in the  beliefs of his readers in constitutional governnyent. He's a  man who feels that this country needs only one ism . . . and  that is good old true Canadian-  ism. The mass hysterias which  sometimes excite and mislead  city people, fade into mildness  before the calm common sense  of the countryside. And amid  all this calm and reasoned  thinking, our friend the country editor stands out as the  guiding influence.   *  Sure, I'll admit that weekly  newspapers make mistakes, but  this only supports the point I  have been trying to make���that  country editors are very human.  Doctors, you know, make mistakes too���but they bury theirs.  The poor old editor has to parade his mistakes in public where  all can see them.  Speaking of mistakes, the  ��� Kelowna Courier ran the customary listing of births in the  local hospital, and to fill up a  little hole under the list of  births, the printer picked up a  standing "filler". Under the list  of births that week, the readers  were astonished to read: "If at  first you don't succeed, try, try  again . . .'���' Then, the Powell  River News reported a local  minister's speech on labor-  management relations of today.  The minister had said, "Let us  pray that . . . management and  labor will soon come to treat  each other as a sacred partnership" ... a misplaced letter  resulted in the story appearing,  "Let us pray . . . treat each  other as a scared partnership." t  But it's not only the weeklies  which make mistakes. The British Columbian of New Westminster reported a council meeting discussion of roads and  bridges ... part of the report  appeared as "Alderman so-and-  so moved that an appropriation  be made to repair the bride in  readiness for heavy traffic."  Then the Daily Province jumbled a furniture for sale ad with  a wedding announcement, the  result being that the wedding  announcement appeared as follows: "So and so and so and so  were married ... on a chesterfield suite." Finally, the. Vancouver Sun's report of a cattle  show stated: "The prize bull in  the female class was so and so."  USEFUL CITIZEN  All kidding aside, like the  salesman of today, the "country  editor is quite a different man  from his counterpart of years  ago.. He is a solid, human business man who takes his position  in his community very seriously.  And' despite all the trials 'and  tribulations that go with the  publishing of; a weekly -paper,  the majority of our "country editors wouldn't trade their jobs  for any other job oh earth. Few  if any of them become rich . . .  but there's something to his  calling that keeps the country  editor. burning he midnight oil  night after night, week after  week, and month after month  throughout the year.  Why does he do it? Well, I  like to think it's the knowledge  that he's doing something real  and useful for his fellowmen  . . . the knowledge that he is  building his community and his  country . . . and is contributing  his part to upholding our free  and democratic way of life.

Gift-Parcel Receipt  BELGRADE, Yugoslavia. ��� A  special three-man investigating committee appointed by F.  H.

LOU Renaud. of Ottawa,  considers     herself     a    very  privileged knitter, for she has  just coippleted the last of eight  pairs o| finely knitted socks for  that famous screen personality,  Bing Cj-osby.   "Lou," as she was  known to the hundreds of staff  and guests at Jasper Park Lodge  where she worked this summer,  met Bing while he was at Jasper  during the filming of the latest  Paramount   movie,   "The   Emperor   Waltz."     While   buying  wool  in  the  specialty  shop  of  the Lodge, she asked the singer  who was present, for his autographed photo,  as she was an  ardent  Crosby fan.    In return  she promised, when finished, the  pair of hand-knit socks she was  carrying  with  her.    Two   days  later   she   had   her   cherished  photo  and  a personal  note  of  thanks from Bing for the two  pair  of colorful socks she had  sent, also enclosed was full payment for the socks.  Shortly after the actor returned to Hollywood, Mrs. Renaud  thoughtfully sent two cards of  matching mending wool to him  with a note of admiration for his  work and attitudes. Much to her  surprise another personal note  by airmail welcomed the wool  and requested more socks if it  was possible to supply them. So  Lou happily turned to knitting  and now the singer's wardrobe  sports ten pairs of varicolored  Canadian hand-knit socks.
