 CRICHTON  HAWKSHAW  Correspondent  WELL, my dear readers, I am  sorry to say that I am unable  to give you the second chapter  of the saga "Four Gals in an  Olds." I hope to be able to do  it next week.  * #������'���*  The Howe Sound Senior Fastball League will get away on  Sunday, May 18. The schedule  calls for games at Britannia  Beach, Woodfibre and Squamish.  The Legion team at each community being "at home" to their  respective community teams.  Britannia Mines Community  Club team drawing a bye. Plans  are being made in each community to have the games get  off to a good start. Then it will  rain I suppose and it will be  called   off.    I   got   my  fingers  crossed.  * *    *  Mr. and Mrs. R. G. Holmes  were week-end guests of Mr.  and.Mrs. C. P. Browning.  ���     *       *       * '     y  Harry Noble's mother was up  from California to spend the  past week with Dot and Harry.  .*  *  The Brazilian motor vessel  "Rio Parniaba" arrived Wednesday May 7 to load prite. She  is a sister ship to the Rio Tocan-  tins that we had in on May 4.  _ She also took 5,400 tons of prite  destined for Delaware, U.S.A.  Her original name was "MV.  Blackwall Hitch," and she is  now named after a tributary of  the Amazon. She was loaded  and left on Saturday, May 10, so  by the time this is in print we  will be having another "Rio"  ship loading prite.  *���   *..���*.  Oh Saturday, May 10, the  - Ladies Aid held a Mother's Day,  Dinner in the.- Upper Club  H6oms.J'AffefytKefairiner, Which  was scrumptious. Boy! What  pumpkin pie! There were guessing games and contests. In the  Parade of the Unknowns,  George Hurley, Phil Thomas  and Gordon Dubberley really  cut a figure. George was a  bathing beauty, Phil a Southern Bride, and Gordon a clown.  They all had masks on and one  had to guess who they were.  The gypsy-girls got me, I would  not have known them. Karen  Bergenham gave a nice recitation, for Mother's Day.  Then we were entertained by  Basil Fitzpatrick and Bill Matheson. Eggs were put on the  floor in front of them, they  turned around, blindfolded,  turned around again and were  told to walk forward and not  tread on the eggs. The eggs had  been lifted and peanuts put  down. You can guess the rest.  Andy Proudfoot,vBob Carter and  Johnny McDonald played several guitar, banjo and bones  selections.  Finally a skit by the members  of the Ladies' Aid. Mrs. C. P.  Browning read the story while  the rest acted in pantomime.  Doreen Clark was the Hero,  Bessie McKnight the vampire,  Mrs. ��� Robinson _ the ��� blushing  maiden, Mrs. Watson the villain,  Mrs. Wilkinson and Mrs. Hatch  her cutthroats, and Mrs. McLeod Sr." and Gertie McKee the  parents of the blushing maiden.  The hero eventually won 'the  hand of the maiden although he  had a battle on his hands.  Mrs. Axel Granberg was the  lucky winner in the raffle of a  painting by Rev. Andrew Rod-  dan. One highlight of the evening was when Bus: _ Vollans  offered to Grace Kennedy that  he would help with the dishes.  Actually Grace, he knew they  were done.  *    *    *  Cheerio folks, and be seein'  yah at the ball game.  Serving a Progressive and Growing  Area on B. C.'s Southern Coast.

National Advertising' Office: Powell River, S. C.  Vol. JI ��� No.  Halfmoon Bay, B.C.Friday. May  16,   1947  5c Per Copy, $2.50 Per Year, by Mail  ranch Manager Britannia Beach To Crown Britannia High  Explains Human  Side of Banking  opper Queen May 24  GIBSONS LANDING ��� The  weekly dinner held in the  dining room of the Merry Ern  Cafe, Friday, was the largest  gathering to date; 26 men attending. A correspondingly  ; large amount of business was  discussed by the group.  A. C. Hill reported that work  is progressing-, on the clearing  of rocks from the Memorial  Playground, and that the surface is being smoothed to make  it usatfle as a ball field and  general playground.  George Frith and Ew Kullander again presented their  proposals for a signboard map  of the district to the gathering.  . It was decided that Mr. Kul-  * lander present a map in keep-  injg with the suggestions made  to the next meeting.  H. Clay, invited to present  ideas concerning a salmon der,  by, suggested that a committee  be appointed to sit and present  their finds to a later meeting.  J. Veitch and E. Kullander volunteered to act with Mr. Clay  on this matter.  GUEST SPEAKER  Speaker for the evening was  . , J. Pudney, manager of the Car-  rail and Hastings Streets branch  of the Bank of Montreal, of  which the Gibsons Landing  ' branch is a sub-agency. Mr.  Pudney in his address gave a  brief history of money and of  banking. He -stated that banks  render services in addition to,  and often quite different from,  those with which' people frequently associate them.  : Banks, Mr. Pudna^ pointed  out, sell service. They undertake to channelize money that  is surplus in one place into  places where it is lacking. They  have experience in fihancial  matters beyond that which an  individual could possess, and  are at the service of the public  to give them the use of this experience.  "There is, in addition," Mr.  Pudney stated, contrary to public opinion, a very human side  to banking. Banking, is not a  straight risk-free venture, but  is based on human values and  capacity as ascertained by bank  managers- The services that a  bank can offer to an individual,  he concluded, reach far beyond  the plane of dollars and cents,  and into that of advice and instruction of quite material  value."  At the conclusion of the address P. G. McPherson suggested that all members present  make an effort to take steps that  will retain the services of our  local bank branch, and C. P.  Smith pointed put that residents  of the Sechelt peninsula really  have two banks, the branch here,  arid the Carrall and Hastings  Streets Branch, and that we*can  quite easily become acquainted  with the staff of the local  branch, whereas such is not the  case in the larger city branches.  St. Andrew, located on the  east coast of Scotland, is the  birthplace of golf. A  BRITANNIA BEACH ��� Children's sports, twenty-second  crowning of the Copper Queen,  traditional fastball game, and  "the finest dance of the season"  will make ^Empire Day a full  day for Britannia Beach residents.

She is to be enthroned  at 2 p.m., and will receive her  New Road Opens  Up Subdivision  GIBSONS LANDING ��� This  community has acquired a  new road, all in the matter of a  few hours. The road is a continuation of the Fletcher Road,  meeting the Sechelt highway  immediately below St. Vincent's  Church.

The new  road will open up an entire subdivision of desirable home-sites  within a" few minute:s' walk Pf  the shopping centre.  Mrs. M. Stead  Passes alt?

Erickson's "Trail's End" is  really showing a decided program of progress. One can really  see now what the cottage is going to be like. Mr. Norburn is  doing the work on the property,  and is really doing a good job.  For the benefit of the curious  and the fence-leaners, Dorothy's  cottage is placed at the odd  angle to get in the view of Trail  Islands. Not wishing to face a  black space of sea, whipped to  action by southeasterlies, Dorothy, having a mind of her own  (as anyone can plainly see), has  set her house on an angle to the  front line of her lot, so there!  Incidentally, this angle also  gets a bird's eye view of Wakefield Inn.  *    *    *  Davis Bay wharf is closed now  for an approximate six weeks  for reconstruction and larger  docking area. Demolition is  now in progress and we hope  to see a bit of building in the  near future. Incidentally for  the benefit of Davis Bayers,  there is a petition in the Trading Post, to obtain a small float  for the use of residents, for their  small rowboats, to be signed by  all those in favour.  Of all the residents in the  Wilson Creek and Davis Bay  area, there is a very small minority attend the monthly meetings of the Sechelt District Improvement Association. This  association is for the benefit of  all residents in the district of  Sechelt, which includes Wilson  Creek, Davis Bay and Selma  Park, outside of Sechelt itself.  The members include ratepayers, property, owners and  residents of six months standing.  This is the place to which you  take all your 'grumbling and  beefing for airing.. The association is sincerely concerned with  your problem, providing it is  not personal, and would, if put  into effect benefit other residents of' your community. The  meetings are held on the first  v evening of each month in the  Sechelt   school,   and   there   is  transportation provided for, the  bus starting at Wilson Creek  and going right through to  Sechelt, picking up passengers  en route.

TWO MEN went up into the  temple to pray; the one a  Pharisee, and the other a publican. The Pharisee stood and  prayed thus with himself, God,  I thank Thee that I am not as  other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this  publican. I fast twice in the  week, I give tithes of all that I  possess. And the publican,  standing afar off, would not lift  up so much as his eyes unto  Heaven, but smote upon his  breast, saying, God be merciful  to me a sinner.  I tell you, this man went down  to his house justified rather  than the other: for every one  that exalteth himself shall be  abased; and he that, humbleth  himself shall be exalted.��� St.  Luke 18:10-14.  COME UNTO Me, all ye that  labour and* are heavy laden,  and I will give you rest. Take  My yoke upon you, and learn of  me; for I am meek and lowly  in heart: and ye shall find rest  unto your souls. For My yoke  is easy, and My burden is light.  ���St. Matt. 11:28-30.

The school programme consisting of plays by the High  School was definitely put off.  Enough practice could not be  put in for the plays because of  the students' absence from  school when the buses were unable to run. After their return  the last term of school was getting shorter, so that time did  not permit any further practice.  However we do wish to thank  Mr. Marsden and our teachers  for trying to make the programme a success.  On Friday morning two periods were taken up in seeing  films. The teachers showed the  students several films on the  Nervous System and Alcohol.  BASEBALL  During the Physical Education period Thursday, the first  of class competitions in baseball was played.

All of us here at school wish  to make two more new students  welcome to Gibsons Landing  School. The best of luck to you  here Margaret and ��� Barry  Stewart!  On May 9th, a Teen Town  party was held in the school  hall. A goodly numbered crowd  appeared on the floor for the  dance. At the beginning, the  record player gave the kids a  little trouble by not giving a  loud enough reception. This  was however, quickly remedied  by one of the fellows in the  crowd. Thanks a lot Jack on  behalf of Teen Town. Notice  Kay Coleridge going up to the  fellows on the Bingo Dances  with a raised hammer. You  dance or else, says Kay! That's  showin' them how they should  be treated, Kay.  If Says Here-  Shopping  Around  Gibsons  By l. Mcpherson  SUMMER days do show up now  and   then   between   showers,  and   thoughts   turn   to   salads,  shorts, sunburn and sherbets.  First in order, salads, to help  you get in 'shape' for item No. 2.  Try, on a stay-at-home evening,  a huge bowl of shredded lettuce,  slivered green onions, tops an'  all, diced cucumbers, all tossed,  sprinkled with sugar, vinegar,  salt and paprika, and just before serving, pour on a couple  tablespoons of thick cream, and  swish them around. And still  the best place to find , cool  greens and fresh vegetables is  the store closest to the wharf-  under-construction.  Then go all out for the sun's  blessing in a clever bareback  sundress, or shorts and bra, or  the brief cotton frocks that now  are in stock at the dress shop.  Right up to date, this store carries nylons, satin panties, smart  kiddies wear, and teen agers  dressy skirts. For your own  special dates you cannot go  wrong with one of the eyelet  embroidered silk dresses.  And then following up the original idea, comes the sunburn,  or tan... depends on your discretion. Trust the druggist for  ���preventative lotions Or remedies  ... there is a good supply. The  variety of sun glasses is remarkable. You can deck your  freckled nose with the upsweep  style, decorated with posies, or  be conservative with the standard sun goggles. But try to get  the ground lenses for your eye  comfort and protection.

British Columbia's  gramme  PART 1  British Columbia's social legislation is designed to promote the  welfare of children, individuals and families, suffering from various  social needs. Some of the most important Acts are:  SOCIAL ASSISTANCE ACT!  Social allowances, general medical services, drugs and other types  of assistance may be granted under the terms of this Act. The act  has been designed to make legal provision for those who cannot be  granted assistance under other more specific acts', with the result  that no one who is eligible should be denied necessities essential to  maintain or assist in maintaining a reasonably normal health  existence.  MOTHERS' ALLOWANCE ACT  Under the terms of this act, provision is made for the granting of  an allowance to mothers with children urider the age of sixteen years^  and under certain conditions under eighteen years, who are widows or  who cannot be supported by the husband for certain specific reasons.  OLD-AGE PENSION ACT  This act enables the province to make provision for persons' seventy  years of age and over who may be.eligible under the Federal Act and  Regulations.
