His boat was tied to  the float near Murdock's store.  Royal Murdock, proprietor of  the store, saw smoke coming  from the boat, and calling for  help, he rushed down to the.  float. Bill Hodson, Norman  Sleep, Bill Halliday and others  joined him.  They tried to get into the  cabin "but were unable to open  the door. With the use of an  axe they chopped and pried at  an opening in the roof of the  cabin. Flames burst through  the hole they made and with the  aid of a fire extinguisher they  fought hard to get the fire under  control. When they were able  to get inside the boat they found  Hodson's body lying on the  floor. Dr. Warner of St. Mary's  Hospital, pronounced him dead;  It is thought that.the fire was  started by Hodson when he was  filling a small burner with kerosene. The container he was  using might have been uncovered and an open flame was present. The case is being investigated by-Constable Jack Purdy  of the Sechelt cfetachment of  the provincial police.,y It is intimated that an inquest will be  held to determine how the fire  started. % -  SECHELT ��� Jack Taylor of  Doriston,: Sechelt' Inlet, visited  his;:fiancee,.

BEACH���On  Friday, Marchij 21, the Ladies' Auxiliary '/sponsored an  Amateur Night. A grand show  was put on by different members and groups in the community and thejv packed house  present enjoyed': the evening  very much.; (Boy,: it was jammed, too.) The program was as  follows: (1). "Diamond Sock  Minstrels", put otr by the Explorers Club. They^ were excellent. They ; sang four songs,  rp^*~-^cracked   some  good  jokes  and  official plans for expansion.  Shortage of essential ^building  materials and inability to conclude negotiations with government authorities are the chief  causes making immediate build-  ing work impossible. But these  also permit a valuable extension  of time in which to assemble  ideas that will make the building unique in international exhibition, circles.  It is intended that the junior  farmer building shall house all  these boys' and girls' exhibition  activities, care for their administrative needs, provide dormitory and washroom space, eating facilities, locker space and  also a sick-bay:. Details of the  novel and constructive contest  have been forwarded to all organizers of junior farm clubs  throughout y British . Columbia  and with the closing date for  _the competition set at May 31,  1947, reports indicate that the  youthful farmers are feverishly  collecting their ideas for assembly on drawing paper. And the  entries need not; look like the  work of architects either. The  main thing, officials state, is the  assembly:of. good ideas in an  /understandable form.  INFORMATION   AVAILABLE  Those clubs which might not  yet have received information  regarding the contest should  .���write" immediately to :Mr. Ben  Williams,,General Manager, Pacific National- Exhibition, Vancouver.  The new Pacific National Exhibition will be the show window of the Canadian west with  a "host of new-features to. attract  not only.British Columbians, but  visitors "from all parts of the  United States, Mexico, Central  and South America, and ' also  industrial and other' "exhibits  from those countries.  NEW ATTRACTIONS  Floor space for exhibits is being increased, also acommoda-  tion providing for the comfort  of visitors to the spacious  grounds. New attractions being  booked herald a brighter and  gayer carnival spirit than ever  before for the new Pacific National Exhibition.  Exhibition officials predict a  record attendance this year of  more than half a million people.  FOR JUNIOR FARMERS -y  The junior farmer is a key  figure in the plans for the new  Pacific National Exhibition.  "The permanent goal of the exhibition is the building of ��� a  greater British Columbia,"'  states Dr. J. C. Berry, chairman  of the junior farmer committee.  "The junior farmer is the producer of tomorrow. His progress is of vital importance to  all of us. He is the new British  Columbia. It is the -responsibility of all who support this  program���and this is a widely  representative group including  -the   provincial   and   dominion  pendent unit.  This suggestion from the Sechelt organization was discussed  at the annual meeting of Elphinstone V.O.N.  These auxiliaries would greatly benefit the communities in  Which they work when the  V.O.N, at Elphinstone cannot  assist the district due to the  nurse shortage.  Twice as many maternity  visits were made and. more  hours spent on duty with fewer  calls than last year, according to  Miss E; Forry. Nurses' salary  increase to $150 per month was  approved.  Following officers were reelected by acclamation:  Dr. A. M. Inglis, honorary  president; Rr Burns, president;  G. A. Marsden, vice-president;  Mrs. L. S. Jackson, second vice-  president; Mrs. E. Donaldson,  , secretary-treasurer.  Members of the board of directors are Mrs. E. Eades, Mrs. J.  T. Newman, Mrs. C. Arnold, Mr.  W. Fprtt, Mr. L. S. Jackson,  Mrs. A. "Gray, Mrs. R. Burns,  Mrs:-P. Ablett, Mrs. W. Berry,  Mr. S. Truman. Auditor for 1947  will be R. Telford.  By D. L. GREENHILL  THE LADIES of the St. Mary's  Hospital Auxiliary met at the  hospital on Friday, March 14,  for their regular monthly meeting.  Plans were completed for the  annual spring lea which is to  be held in the Community Hall,  Irvine's Landing, Saturday,  April 19. This promises to be a  grand social affair, drawing for  the prizes offered in the draw,  for which tickets are now being  sold, and what handsome prizes  they are too. The first prize is  a beautiful hand knit jacket, in  the palest pink baby wool with  large balloon sleeves. It is  lovely for a convalescent, or as  a summer wrap with a formal  dress. A bride would, I am  sure, be thrilled with such a  lovely gift for her trousseau, in  fact anyone would love to own  such a luuxry. It is boxed in  cellophane and is now on show  in-Murdoch's store, so be sure  and look for it when next you  shop, there.  Then the second prize is a $5  gift certificate so the lucky winner can select their own fancy.  The third prize is a fine coffee  Cory,, the grandest thing for  anyone who likes really good  Java. So there's bound to be  excitement when the winners  are announced on Saturday,  April 19; Canvassers . were  elected to call on residents here  for their help to put this tea  over big.  Tea . will be served by the  ladies, and there will be a  "white elephant stall"���what  fascination that will be, for  there are some really lovely and  useful "white elephants." Maybe some of - our friends whom  the canvassers cannot reach  have something they would like  to donate, if so, do send your  gift along to the secretary, Mrs.  A. A. Lloyd, Pender Harbour.  B.C.; it is for a worthy cause,  and will be much appreciated.  ^^Vtany of the ladies are busy  ftchhigyj 'and yymaking   aprons _,  book of 25 tickets for $2. We  are looking forward to seeing  some of our friends from "down  the line" more often now that  the "Gulf Wing" is operating.  Why not make a date to be  here Saturday, April 19.  City 'Blue Baby'  Operation Success  SECHELT ��� Eighteen-<year-old  Doreen Doyle, who underwent  the first blue baby type operation to be performed in Vancouver, is doing well at the  General Hospital, it is reported.  Her mother, Mrs. Dora Doyle,  a logger's widow, has been in  Vancouver with her for the  delicate operation, performed  two weeks ago at the Vancouver  General Hospital by Dr. Ross  Robertson.  Doreen is recovering slowly,  but to date her mother has been  her only visitor and just for a  few minutes at a time; The surgery will permit Doreen to lead  a normal life from now on,  something she has been depriv-  < d of due to a condition known  as "pulmonary stenosis," or narrowing of the channel from  heart tb lungs. She could take  only a limited part in the activities of other children because of her great difficulty in  breathing.  HANDICAPPED  ��� Partially bedridden since the  age of three, she could walk but  a short distance at a time. One  of the greatest tragedies caused  by her condition was being  forced to give up school in the  third grade. She has since  studied through correspondence  courses and with the operation  a success, intends to continue  that long-denied education.  Chief of the Vancouver General Hospital department, in  commenting   on   the  operation,  II*|lPf|ii&S^ ';^Wch_m^s<yanother. _step_in.  5lraS^^S��e'" working-on are bound -to    f?a surgical progress, said that  also.    The police are trying to  locate his sister in Vancouver.  Gibsons Wharf Work  GIBSONS LANDING ��� H. W.  Greenlees, Vancouver contractor, is making arrangements  to close the wharf here in about  10 days preliminary to tearing  down the present structure.  The work has been delayed  pending deliveries from four  Vancouver mills which are cutting timbers.  Rebuilt wharf will be 26 feet  wide, an addition of six feet.  Sidewalk with guard rails will  be five feet wide.  NEW POSTMASTER  SECHELT���Fred Willows, Selma Park storekeeper, has  been appointed postmaster upon  resignation of R. J. A. McGuin-  ness. . The new location of the  post office will be iat Mr. Willows' store. He will have Mrs.  H. Burke as assistant postmistress. The new office was ready  for business last week.  Grantham Couple Celebrate Their  Golden Wedding  nniversary  By JIM RENNIE  ON THURSDAY night, March  13, some 80 or more friends  of Mr. and Mrs. Francis Farrow  gathered in Granthams Community Hall to honor them on  the occasion Of their golden  wedding. The hall was nicely  decorated and in front' of. the  platform was a long table  gleaming white. The centrepiece was a three-tiered wedding cake encircled with four  silver, vases joined by a silver  chain and flanked by tall white  tapers in silver candlesticks. On  either side were silver vases  with daffodils, and at either end  of the table were, silver tea and  coffee sets. At one side of the  hall was a small, table with",  more silver and flowers; all  ready' for the happy couple to  sip tea and taste the wedding  -cake.  The cake was the product of  our well known, artistic trio,  Mrs. Douglas and Mr. and Mrs.  Les Steadman.  The^program of entertainment  opened withva:duet by Mrs.: Art  Alexander and Mrs. Clive Cornish, entitled y"The Anniversary"  Song," and a quartette composed of Messrs. Gibbs, Spencer,  Steadman and Rennie, rendered,  "When You and I Were Young,  Maggie" and other melodies.  Mr.   Dan  Fergiispn  had  his-  audience tappihjg their feet with  his Scottish selections played on  the melodeon and was- cheered  to the echo.  Mr. and Mrs. Jim Rennie sang  the duet "Huntingtower" or  "When Ye Gang Awa' Jamie,"  and somehow Jamie seemed to  think '"London Tower" had  something;to do with it-  Mr. Les Steadman in a most  dramatic .manner depicted the  adventures of two members of  the famed "Lions Club," and.  from the ensuing merriment one  could guess their address was  Granthams.  / A mixed quartette of the  previous songsters brought the  program to an end with "Mother  Machree" and "Put On Your Old  Grey Bonnet," . after which  lunch was served;-with Mrs. F.  Bushfield and. Mrs.>Neill Lowes  presiding yatthe tea table.  Mr. B,.-Parkinson made an  ideal chairman and Mr. Fred  Howlett in/presenting Mrs. Farrow with a beautiful-gold locket;  and chains and Mr. Farrow with  a pocketbook on behalf yof 1 all  those present, wished therii joy  and happiness. ,!>  Mr. anct Mrs. Farrow rather  shyly thanked all their friends  from Soames Point, Gibsons  Landing and Granthams and  remarked . that ,- the evening  would' be full of happy memories.  (3) Comet selections by "Cowboy" James Baiderson, accompanied by "Red" Verdesio. If  James keeps up the good work  he is doing now he will be a  leading performer in the near  future. (4) Solo by young Len-  nard Siggers, another star of  the future. (5): Musical selections by the Corn Huskers (A.  Proudfoot, J. MacDonald and  Bob Carter). They were very  peppy and the teen-agers hated  to see them leave the stage.  (6). The Ladies Aid starred  again by . putting on one of  their famous skits. "Thirty  Years Ago". Mr. N. McLeod,  Sr., was having such a nice  peaceful evening until all of his  relatives decided to pay a.- Saturday night visit; He seemed  to enjoy their musical evening  though, but couldn't quite  "take" the dance put on by his  young son and nephew. (7)  Duet by Mrs. Rv Fleming and  Mr. Wm. Adamson. (8): Mrs.  R. Wilkinson, monologue, "On  Being Cliniced". Wilkie had  quite a time with the stomach  pump and was certainly worried when she heard she had  to have her picture taken in the  nude, but still told "Mrs.  Smeltz" there was nothing to it.  (9) Mr. Gallagher and Mr.  Sheen by Legionnaires J. Newberry and V. Rice. Excellent,  and the audience did not wish  for   them   to  leave   the   stage.  (10) Musical duet (piano and  accoridion) by Mr. and Mrs.  Sven Anderson. The audience  could also have; settled. down  for the rest of the evening to  listen to them. (11) The Ladies'  Auxiliary came thirough at the  end with their skit, "The Problem Kids". They certainly were  a problem too and I bet Miss  Mclntyre is thankful that she  hasn't any Percy Baxter's etc.,  in her class. I believe "teacher"  Hill still has a headache. The  program was brought to a close  by singing God Save the King.  Our thanks to the Ladies' Auxiliary and all of the- good sports  in the community for the grand  show they put on for all of us.  TODAY'S Coast News appears  in a larger form than usual,  having had to accommodate an  advertisement 6f special interest, as well as in an effort to  ^catch up" on news items which  were unfortunately left out of  last week's edition.  We hope to be able to continue the regular handy size,  with an increased number of  pages if the splendid support of  readers, advertisers and correspondents shown during the past  month can- be maintained..  ^ir ||ive a lift to the wearer. Then  7qf course, there will be a sale of  horhecooking, we have to have  that, for several visitors come  especially for this sale. We are  very fortunate that there are  some really good cooks in Pender Harbour.  We also made plans for the  purchase of an electric food  mixer for St. Mary's Hospital,  as these are oh the "hard to  get" list we know it.will be  much appreciated. A new set  of shades for the sunroom at  the hospital were donated. After  all the business was cleaned up  tea was served by the hostesses  for the month, and everyone  felt we had had a very good  meeting. We now have a membership of over 40, and we still  would like to have more. The  meetings are held at the hospital every second Friday of the  month at 2.30 p.m^ We can arrange transportation if you  would like to join us, just drop  a line to the secretary. And if  you would like tickets for the  draw I mention they can be  obtained from Mrs. A. A. Lloyd,  Pender Harbour, B.C.; 10 cents  each, three for 25  cents, or a  Doreen's heart disability was  becoming worse up-to the time  of the operation.  SECHELT  DENIS Pierce of the Associated  Air Taxis, Sea Island, had a  busy time of it at Porpoise Bay  week ago Thursday and Friday,  transporting Norman Burley of  B.C. Fir & Cedar Co., and Ted  Osborne of the Osborne Logging Co.  Mrs. E. Fredrickson of Sechelt  Inn managed to get a ride as  far as Lambs camp and back.  E. Pearson, of the Coast News,  experienced his first plane ride.  In a one-passenger Fleet Canuck seaplane Norman Burley^  and Ted Osborne have an inter-"  est in this new air service. It  is expected that the announcement of the issuance of the new  charter will be given out soon.  Unclad models posing in un-  heated Paris studios are going  to get more pay for their work  "as soon as the model complains  of gooseflesh."  KELOWNA���Launching of the  second Okanagan Lake ferry  for use between Kelowna and  West Bank will take place in  about three weeks, Alan Cormack, construction engineer for  Yarrows Ltd., has announced.  Mr. Cormack is a brother of  George Cormack at Halfmoon  Bay.  Work has been under way  since the first week in January,  and the vessel, which will be  known as the "Lequime" in  honor of one of the early pioneers in the valley, is now undergoing finishing touches.  While no definite plans have  been received for the official  launching of the vessel, it is expected that Hon. E. C. Carson,  minister of public works, will  make an official announcement  next week.  Several B.C. cabinet ministers  are expected to be here for  the occasion. The vessel will  not be put into regular use until  after the trials are held. Powered by diesel engines, the trials  will take a week or more. It is  hoped that the 24-hour service  across the lake will be resumed  soon as the "Lequime" is ready  ior regular runs.  Sections of the ferry were  built at the Esquimalt plant of  Yarrows Ltd., and were shipped  by railway car to Kelowna  where they have been assembled.  'WHAT'S WRONG,  PENDER HARBOUR?'  Editor, Coast News.  Dear Sir���I would like to remark on the almost complete  absence of Pender Harbour  news and ads. Pender Harbour  is a terminus much the same as  Gibsons Landing, yet all the  little hamlets on the way seem  to warrant nearly half a column,  sometimes.  Pender Harbour and the denizens thereof must be truly perfect. Perhaps they do not advertise because they do not wish  to persuade people to spend  money they cannot afford.  They have a "beer parlor" and  :iii6~pewg?'y;,^  and apparently no sick people?  They have a lot of pretty wives  and nobody steals them? They  have bun struggling tea fights,  and no gossip? They have  "Carpy"  and his mandolin.  Truly this must be a Utopia.  In   other   words,   "What's   the  matter with Pender Harbour."  Hoping to hear more of Pender Harbour.   I am, truly yours,  G. S. Nott,  1039 E. 40th St.,  Vancouver, B.C.  GULF WING HITS  SUBMERGED SNAG  GULF LINES "Gulf Wing" had  the misfortune to cross a submerged snag on her Thursday  trip, s-damaging both propellers  and driveshafts. She was on  the northbound trip, and managed to make Halfmoon Bay  without trouble, discharging her  passengers there and arranging  for their immediate transportation to their various destinations; she returned to Vancouver without passengers, and  after repairs were effected was  able to resume regular schedules  at the end of the week.

Commissioners after discussing a resolution from the Ratepayers' association asking removal of the effending berry  bushes, decided the work should  be done by property owners  themselves. Funds for road  work and improvements are in-  suificient to cover this item. The  matter will be taken up with  the ratepayers.  In answer to ratepayers' request for zoning the commissioners argued that building  and improvements have gone  too far now to start zoning.  The area in question takes in  the main street and two streets  back. Commissioners thought  this area would all be commercial in time.  They assured the ratepayers  any obnoxious buildings such  as slaughter houses or tanneries  would be carefully investigated  before permits were issued.  Permits would be denied for  buildings considered against the  best interests of the community.  Water Commissioner W. Graham reported vandals had  driven seven large spikes into  the overflow water tanks. If  these had not been discovered  in time, the water supply system would have been ruined.

MaeKENZIE  SCHOOL !-BUILDINGS-  ross rrovirscia  (By  Jean  McLaren,  Roberts Creek)  THE 28th annual convention of  provincial Red Cross was held  February 20 and 21 in the May-  fair room of the Hotel Vancouver. The meeting was opened  by Admiral Mainguy, representing the navy and General  Plows for the army, both gentlemen thanking the Red Cross  for comforts, hospital supplies  and hospitality to the men of  the services. Admiral Mainguy  was a good speaker and very  much to the point.  Routine business and reports  were next dealt with and from  there one gained a larger and  more intimate knowledge of  Red Cross work.  The address of the convention  was to have been given by Doctor Stanbury on the blood plasma clinic, but owing to an accident he was unable to be present, and although this, the  greatest peacetime undertaking  of the Red Cross was dealt with  by various speakers, the absence  of Dr. Stanbury was greatly regretted and shortened the convention.  BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS  During the war the discovery  and development of blood  plasma was such an outstanding  contribution to the saving of  life that it was felt it must be  made available to the people of  Canada through the Red Cross.  After long and tedious negotiations between the provincial  Red Cross, the provincial government and the headquarters  council of Red Cross the first  blood transfusions and blood  plasma laboratory was opened  in the old Shaughnessy Hospital  on January 21, 1947, at a cost of  $180,000 and is believed to be  the first of its kind in the world.  The provincial government  paid for the remodelling of the  building and the Red Cross supplied !he equipment. When they  opened they had 733 bottles of  plasma and four hospitals in  B.C. are now receiving plasma,  the Vancouver General, St.  Paul's, North Vancouver and  one in Victoria. This service is  free but to enable the Red  Cross to continue this service  on the scale planned they expect  mobile clinics to visit all parts  of B.C. several times a year.  There is a.a donor clinic in the  basement of the old Hotel Vancouver *and donations are well  maintained. The next depot to  be opened will be in Toronto,  followed by one in Ottawa and  four more throughout Ontario.  Eventually it is expected that.  ed out that the Red Cross could  hardly be expected to refurnish  homes as some seemed to expect.  This correspondent was very  taken with Mrs. Mawer, both as  to appearance, ability and devotion to her, work. She is strikingly good looking with a wonderful personality. Her report  of meeting all trains with returning service personnel, hospital trains, and brides' trains  appeared like an almost impossible task. No incoming train,  day or night, was ever missed  in the seven years of war, and  when she told me that all Red  Cross worker's* went to and fro  on street cars or walked, it  seemed all the more remarkable.  It was only <jjn foggy nights or  mornings th&t call girls were  taken to theif homes in army  cars. It had! been agreed that  no worker would ever use their  own car.        y  y  Mrs. Goddard stressed the  continuance of all branch work.  She expects to attend a dominion council riieeting in March,  when new plans will no doubt  be formulated for the carrying  on of the work. She said a  great deal of common sense  must be used in the making of  all garments, and really no hard  and fast rules are laid down in  connection with civilian clothing.  She stated that Britain has the  first choice of all clothing, but  has been most unselfish in her  requests, preferring many times  to send it to the distressed areas  of Europe. The British feel that  this is one way-in which they  can do their share in preventing  another war in 15 or 20 years.  PENDER HARBOUR  THE INFANT son of Mr. and  Mrs. Ralphj Williams, Kleindale, born March 20 in St.  Mary's Hospital; Pender Harbour, is a much travelled young  man for his age. Mrs. Williams  and son travelled by plane to  Vancouver oh March 20 for  special treatment and returned  via the Gulf Wing on Sunday,  March 23. Mother and son are  doing nicely in St. Mary's Hospital.  *    *  , *  Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd I. Davis  and daughter Sharon have returned to Garden Bay to reside. Mr. Davis is being taken  into partnership with his father-  Eventually it is expected tnaty in_iaw> Mr. Harvey H. Sparling  all provinces will have depote^^-fte Gardeff^Bay Lodge" anH  except   Prince   Edward   Island     Cafe business.  1038 Homer Street, Vancouver, B.C.  346V  where   it  can  be  easily  flown  upon request.  This work is the greatest  peacetime project ever undertaken by the Red Cross and will  require all the support, financially and otherwise, that the  people of the dominion can give  to it. When the work is completed there will be eleven  depots in Canada, equipped at a  cost of a million dollars.  In this connection Mrs. Goddard pointed out that between  four and five thousand dressings  1x1% will be required each  week and asked that all  branches who felt they could  make even a few hundred at a  time get in touch with headquarters.  OUTPOST HOSPITALS  Dr. Lamont, reporting for outpost hospitals, said there were  now four of these in B.C. and  three more were being planned  for; one on Stuart Island, one in  Terrace^ and one in northern  B.C. These hospitals have three  beds, a nurse and housekeeper.  When a hospital exceeds this  number you have the matter of  hours off, night nurses and such  matters as make them very difficult to. maintain.  There are 1,200 patients at  Shaughnessey, 108 at Hycroft  and some 80 chest cases at  smaller hospitals. TB patients  go to the General or Tranquille.  In the room they had an exhibit  of the arts and crafts, made by  the patients, which was quite  remarkable. Some of this work  is remedial and some occupational. It takes the . form of  knitting, weaving, woodworking, metal work, designing and  clay modelling. Just last week  they had a kiln installed and it  is hailed with delight by large  numbers who have taken up this  hobby.  These articles are never sold  by the Red Cross although they  believe there may be the odd  case where a patient disposes of  them. For the most part they  are given away.  One of the newest branches of  the work is to secure and train  swimming and athletic instructors to go to more remote parts  and teach children to swim and  take up physical training. This  is meeting with great success.  EMERGENCY RELIEF  The matter of what constitutes  emergency relief was brought  up. Commissioner Scott pointed out that in all cases of a  home being destroyed by fire or  flood or whatever cause; no  appeal for aid as it pertains to  clothing, food yor housing wouid  be denied. He stated that where  help was really needed it was  despatched as quickly as possible, even in some cases of  sending money for hotel accommodation until other arrangements could be made. He point-  Mrs. Jim Davidson has returned to her home after a short  stay in Vancouver, visiting with  her daughter Rose Mary Davidson.  * i  *      *  Friends will be glad to hear  that Dolly Edwards is slowly  improving from her recent attack of fever.  * *    *  Mr. Charlie Harris had a rush  trip Saturday to Vancouver Bay  to bring an injured man to St.  Mary's Hospital.

"Maizie" will exit come March  28 with no show set to follow.  . . . Eddie Duchin will finish out  his set but may not return in  the fall . . . others due to leave  the air this month are the "Pot  o' Gold" airer, "Sparkle Time"  and the Eddie Bracken show.  Latter will be replaced on March  30 by the "Tony Martin Show."

Bob  Hope will guest for that evening  which will be show's finale. . .  "Man Called X" is slated to take  over the following week. Also  fading is "That's Finnegan."  HIT PARADE MOVES  One of radio's oldest and most  popular programs, "Your Hit  Parade," will return to the  NBC network on April 26 . . .  program will be cut'to 30 minutes and probably will be limited to the top seven tunes of the  week. Not known if Andy Russell will stay but seems likely he  will.. . . Mark Warnow will still  lead orchestra . . . time will be  6 p.m. with no later airing as at  present.  RAMBLING  There's a new voice each  Tuesday night at 79 Wistful  Vista . . . Fibber and Molly have  a new maid, Lena.

Screen star  Jane Russell has joined the Kay  Kyser program as featured  vocalist. She broke into radio by  novel means.

CANADIAN ADVENTURES  Two of' Canada's best known  story tellers, Gregory Clark and  Gordon Sinclair, combine their  talents in an unusual radio  show "Adventure Assignment"  over CJOR each Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 5 p.m.  . . . "The Money Makers," Roy  Ward Dickson's $1,000 . prize  quiz show, has switched to Mondays at 9 . . . the move provides a ful^hour of question and  answer entertainment' for CKWX listeners as "Twenty Questions" occupies the 9.30 slot...  8.30 is the time "Reserved for  Drama" on CKWX. . . . "Hollywood Radio Theatre" starts the  week on Mondays; with "'The  Adventures of the Falcon" on  Tuesday; "Count of Monte Cris-  to," Wednesday; Basil Rathbone  in "Scotland Yard," Thursday;  the star-studded "Family Theatre" on Friday, and the "Mysterious Traveller" rounding out  on Saturday. . . .

LOOKING BACK  Glancing back to the 1936  files, it is interesting to note  that Burns and Allen were high  on the list of favorite comedians,  . . . Jack Benny had Johnny  Green for his ork leader and  stooge ... Rubinoff had a 33-  piece orchestra . . . the late Ben  Bernie did a socKo guestar stint  with Eddie Cantor . . .Cecil and "  Sally were going strong as a  coast serial. . . the First Nighter  program, with Don Ameche as  star, had moved to Hollywood,  as Ameche had signed to do pix  for- 20th Century . . . studio  didn't think Ameche's name-  suitable and wanted to change  it, but sponsor nixed idea! .  Freddy Martin ^Vas playing at  the. Aragon iH Chicago, while  Ted Lewis had just movedout  of the Coconut Grove in L.A.  . . .-Bob Burns was a hit on  Bing's Music Hall.  NO MUSIC  Ordinarily contestants on  "Take It or Leave It," who  choose- No. 1 category, need at  least a couple of, bars of even a  well-known song before they  can identify it (more if Baker  plays the selection). This was  the experience of a recent contestant until she got to the.$64  question ... three knocks on  a door and before the ork had a  chance to go into their arrangement ��� she guessed it. The  tune???   Are you kidding???  STARDUST  Al Jolson has waxed his tune  "The Anniversary Song," and  backed it with another fave,  "Avaloh" . . . Louis Jordan and  his Tmypany Five have "Let  The Good Times Roll" plus  "Ain't Nobody Here But Us  Chickens" . . . for music-comedy  lovers there's an album of songs  from "Roberta" done by Kitty  Carlisle, Alfred Drake, and  others, with music by Harry  Sosnik . . . for those who like  the soft, dreamy style of the  islands, try the Les Paul Trio's  album, "Hawaiian Paradise."  Tommy Dorsey asks the popular  question: "How Are Things in  Gloccamorra?" . . . Phil Harris'  latest poses the musical query  "Where Does It Get You in the  End?" . . . Buddy Clark's swell  rendition of "Linda" is backed  by another lovely tune "Love is a  Random Thing." . . . Elliot Lawrence's fine band pairs "They  Can't Convince Me" with "Let's  Put Our Dreams Together."  . . . Sinatra has "I Gotta Gal I  Love," with the flipover "That's  How Much I Love You" ... well,  we didn't know! ;.. Gene Krupa  jives up an oldie long-hair tune  "Valse Triste" and backs it with  "Opus 1" . . . Frankie Carle has  recorded his "Roses in the Rain"  and put "You Are There" on the  other side.  RECORD DUST  Sinatra is back again with  "Why Shouldn't It Happen To  Us" and VI Want to Thank Your  Folks." . . . Dinah Shore goes  slightly hillbilly with the assistance of Spade Cooley's ork,  and sing "Heartaches, Sadness  and Tears" . . . backing is the  ubiquitous "Anniversary Song,"  a truly lovely number if ever  we heard one. . . . Les Brown  HALF MOON BAY  By MRS. R. MOSIER  MR. AND Mrs. E. F.

During the war  Miss Clarke was an overseas  nurse, doing work, in Italy and  other Allied fronts facing the  enemy. Miss Clarke is now the  assistant supervisor of the Junior Red Cross, on whose behalf  she spoke to the school.  Miss Clarke informed us that  the Junior Red Cross is the  greatest youth organization in  the world, made up of students  from all grades in primary and  high schools. She also told us  of the thousands of dollars that  are spent towards aid' for the  people of all countries. The Red  Cross extends its hand to them.  Miss Clarke also showed us pictures and pamphlets from  foreign countries who were  sending their thanks to the Red  Cross.  Gibson's Landing Elementary  School may soon be seen on the  screen. During a recent filming tour of the peninsula by the  National Film Board, shots  were taken of our school.

Graham Mc-  Farlane of Sexsmith, Peace  River, and Miss Doris McFar-  lane of Vancouver- were weekend guests of Rev. and Mrs.  Frank Bushfield last week-end.  Mr. and Mrs. McFarlane made  the trip by air from Fort St.  John, December 1 last, and will  return next week via air. They  report a very pleasant trip,  especially entering the city of  Vancouver in the evening as the  lights came on.  * *    *  A very pleasant afternoon was  spent at the United Church Hall,  Friday, March 14, when the Gibsons Group W.A. held a St. Patrick's tea. The fine weather  assured its success. Mrs. J.  Horn, group leader, welcomed  the guests, and Mrs. Walter Mc-  Gown, Sr., was responsible for  ����the Green of Auld Ireland decorating the hall. The tables,  which were served by Mesdames  A. Thomson, E. Kennett and D.  Donaldson were gay with paper  shamrocks and spring blossoms.  Others assisting were Mesdames  Arthur Hill, M. Kidd, J. Deans  and" F. Bushfield. The group  wish to take this opportunity to  thank all who attended the tea.  * *    *  Ritchie Norris is back home,  having completed his eight-  week leadership course at U.B.C.

It is  believed that Chuck is the secret machinery that brother  Harry has imported to excavate  his hardpan.  * *    *  Nick LePordivan and family,  who moved to Vancouver last  week, had a boisterous welcome  accorded them by the city. A  MacDonald Street bus left the  road, sheered off a light pole,  and crashed into Nick's house.  Maybe Nick will think that the  peaceful country life had something after all.  * *    *  Dr. Hugh Inglis and family  have moved to Gibsons, where  Dr. Inglis will share the practice  of Dr. Alan Inglis. The continual increase in population,  added to the extended distances  to be covered, from Port Mellon  to Sechelt Inlet, have made it  increasingly difficult for one  doctor to carry on all that needs  to be done in the field of medical services.  Dr. .Hugh- Inglis is not a  stranger- to this area. He attended school at Gibsons, and  still doing it. Some people never  learn.  * *    *  We don't very often have-  much excitement on a Sunday  but this week we very nearly  lost the Savoy Hotel by fire.

(By Perri-'Winkle)  WHEN WE have days like last  v/eek, we are tempted to get  out and garden. It is still too  early to do very much work,  but the garden can be spaded  and prepared for planting. Many  of the hardy annuals that seeded down last year will soon be  showing, and if we wait awhile  we may get a good crop of  seedlings.  It is still too early to prune  rose bushes. March and into  April is soon enough. Clematis  should be pruned back to within three buds of last year's  pruning cut. It is also the time  to prune holly trees. Wait till  March to prune the Buddlia. It  will bloom better and have  longer flower spikes if cut back.  If dividing chrysanthemum  roots, the outside shoots of each  clump are the best. It is best  to divide the roots every two  years.  A few gladiolus bulbs could  be planted this month provided  the soil is well drained and  sandy. Bulbs should be set 5-6  inches deep.  A good time to plant a new  lawn is to sow the seed about  March 20-25. Vegetables that  can be planted now are peas,  broad beans, onion sets and  parsnips. New potatoes may be  planted if the soil is light, but  best results are had by waiting  till March.  practised here also for some  time. His decision to return  will mean the chance of prompter attention being made possible  throughout the entire peninsula.  * *    *  The fine weather has brought,  among other things, itchy fingers to the softball addicts.  Divers enthusiasts made their  impromptu appearance on the  playground Sunday to toss and  bat the pill about a bit. And  the yearly hope goes forth that  said grounds will be playable  this season.  * *    *  Born, to Mr. and Mrs. Jack  Inglis, on March 19, in the Vancouver General Hospital, a  seven-pound baby girl, Lorna  Jean. Daughter and parents are  all doing well.  * *    *  The driving of posts and attaching thereto of railings has  officially in fact if not in name  sealed off the government wharf  here. The burning question is,  for how long? Partially at least  by request of Sea Bus Lines,  some of the Gibsons floats will  be towed to Granthams and attached to the wharf there to  allow mooring of small vessels  during the time that the former  dock is being renewed.  ���''*'" *" '*"  Arthur Barnes, old-time resident of Gibsons, had a painful  accident here which resulted in  the loss of at least one finger  and severe damage to others.  As he was starting the engine  in his fish boat "Shirley," the  fly-wheel kicked back . and  crushed his fingers against the  floor. He was taken to Pender  Harbour Hospital, by Guy Fisher.  * *    * ���;  Mrs. J. Ford of Bigger, Sask.,  is visiting her mother, Mrs.  Stanley Benn, for a few weeks.

Many daffodils,  primroses and of course, the  lovely large long-stemmed violets are brightening up the  gardens, colorful crocuses adding their touch and gorgeous  japonicas, which seem to have  especially   large   blossoms   this  year.  * #    *  The Women's Auxiliary to the  Canadian Legion celebrated its  14th birthday here in the Legion  hall on March 19. Eighty guests  were present at the party. During the course of the evening  past president pins were - presented to Mrs. H. Bartle and  Mrs. A. Pilling, arid a presentation made to Mrs. A. Norris,  sergeant-at-arms.  "Granny" McEwan, grand old  lady of Gibsons, celebrated her  81st birthday here on March 13.  * *    *  At the council meeting on  March 19 the question of re-  zoning in the village was discussed. The feeling of the meeting was. that building had gone  too far to permit any re-zoning  in the lower village for residential premises.  The blackberry problem was  referred by the council to the  residents as being, too costly a  project for the village. However, an effort is to be made to  encourage each -resident to clear  the vines from in front of and  behind his own lot.  1    THE COAST NEWS  Friday, March 28,  1947 5  Shopping  Around   Gibsons  If Easter is upon you and your  wardrobe looks like it has been  used to keep the latest litter of  pups comfy . . . well there is  still time to do something about  it.

When  Graham Towers, governor of the  Bank of Canada said that Canada's  cost of living  index had  risen   from the basis of  100  in  August,  1939, to only 126 as of  December,   1946,   The   Optimist  thinks the housewives conclude  that a kitchen is a better place  to judge the increase than the  inner   sanctum   of   a   national  bank; holding that the cost of  tea, sugar and clothes pegs not  alone   exhaust   the   family   income.    The punch line:   "while  Mr. Towers would have us believe that the Canadian  dollar  of today is still worth around 80  cents, we can  only retort that  he should try his hand at buying a pound of shortening, a jar  of peanut butter or a packet of  raisins, on that basis."   When a  trapper   in. Saskatchewan' was  denied to the right to sue the  government on disallowance of  his private rights, the Weyburn  Review points out a bill to make  this   inalienable   right   possible  ��� is being introduced in the parliament bf Britain, itself socialist now by majority, and as the  Review holds: "This is a very  interesting development, and  comes at an appropriate time  for Saskatchewan legislators in  view of the case in point." An- .  other publication jumps on M.  , J.- Gold well's remarks that New  Zealand is doing better in the  housing business by building  houses to rent at $18.25 a month,  by pointing out N.Z. houses  would be of mighty little use in  this climate, and that he missed  the opportunity to point out  "that housing rents in Russia  are much cheaper than New  Zealand; that rents are even  lower.in India, lower again in  China, in our dollars. "If Mr.  Coldwell could get us the Chinese wage standard in the  building trade in Canada, we  could get Chinese rentals here."  The Brooks, Alta., Bulletin,  strikes out against our restricted  immigration policy, newly announced, with distinct limitations: adds, "Here we are on  the northern half of a great  continent fearful of letting  people come in. We think they  might cause unemployment. We  forget that the real wealth of a  nation is in its people, their.  energy and skill. This country  would be a hundred times richer  if we had three times the population."  ' ��� Oddities in the Canadian  news: One morning Joel Salte  of Lac Qui Parle, Que., found an  Gard  en bay  Lodge  We regret the loss of Cam and Marie as operators of  the Garden Bay Cafe. It has been a pleasure having  them here.  The cafe will continue to operate as usual and at the  same hours. We will make every effort to continue  the good service that was given by Cam and Marie.

John Atkins,- well  known weekly newspaperman  takes issue with Canada's unemployment regulations from  the standpoint of domestic help,  saying:; "House work, which is  highly "suitable" for mothers  is "unsuitable" to those who  draw unemployment insurance  at the mothers' expense. In one  instance a young.' woman refused domestic employment because she would lose . her  eligibility for unemployment  insurance if she helped a mother  whom she otherwise would  "like to help." It is time for  the encouragement of immigration of women who will enjoy  well-paid domestic work."  ��� The Printed Word funnels  in on the argument in magazines and newspapers which  keep asserting tha.k labor and  management must get together  to reduce strikes and strike  threats, but sees a difficulty in  that "getting .together''requires  good will ancL.good, sense on  both " sides,'yputs its argument  partly in these words:  "Unionism   is   proper.     But  unionism -wjll destroy itself if  (as in so many instances.now)  it uses its great power unwisely.  "This is not to say that all  employers are of pristine purity.  The great, majority of employers today are anxious to treat  workers fairly, even generously,  and,; do^ not -object to dealing  with unions. But when some  of the best;;employers,, paying  the highest/:wages, find union  leaders completely unreasonable, and when the public is  frequently compelled to suffer  loss -���: and inconvenience, unionism, is weakening its own cause.

Simple  ���aint it?  Thought I'd take a load off my better-half's mind by filling  out the form for him. Naturally, my mathematics being what they  are, I ran into difficulties. Harry purports. to think that my  method of figuring is peculiar and involved. Actually its quite  simple. For instance, if somebody says, "What's nine times  eight?" I just multiply eight by four, double it; and add ahotrier  eight. It only takes a second, and I always get the right answer,  but I must admit that I was staggered and appalled to discover  that we still owed the government sUghtlyihoreythan, our total  income for 1946. When I conveyed this ^tartling^piece of information to my awful we'dded mate, he took the fprm from me, and  gave me a nasty look, compounded of exasperation and insufferable male superiority. He then boilfidoiir total debt down to  $16.74.   Men make me tired���they think they 'know everything.  By the way, did you hear about the man.1 who complained  bitterly that he couldn't file a joint;report becatiskhis wife wouldn't  tell him how much she earned.

RE COLUMNISTS y  Ed McBurnie's remarks on columnists the other^week engendered a horrible suspicion in my mind.' Have you ever noticed that  poets and columnists are more prevalent in the Spring, than at  any other time of year?.Could it be that the first bright golclen  jiays of life-giving sunshine warm the rock under which they have  lain dormant all winter?  Having several times been completely infuriated by gushing  ladies who grasped my limp hand in their fervid palms and  burbled; "My^ dear, that was a sweet little piece you had in the  paper." I hereby, with a malevolent grin distorting my features,  pass along my reaction to Ed McBurnie's first column in the  Free Press.  I thought it was cute.

Mr. Brookman is now president of Branch 140, Canadian  Legion, at Sechelt, B.C., and  plans to work as hard for this  branch as he did for South Bur  naby.
