Ratepayers Seek  Vote for Hotel  GIBSONS LANDING ��� Gibsons ratepayers want a plebiscite taken before the Attorney-  General grants a hotel license  in the 'district, it was decided at  a meeting here.

A total  of 26 names have been entered  so far in the chrysanthemum  contest.  FORM COMMITTEE  A committee was formed to  investigate planning of new  roads and to find outflow appropriations for roa4 work are  to be spent.

Mr. and Mrs. F. Earles have  purchased Mr. Cavanaugh'is  house on the Sechelt highway  near the Pratt Road, and intend  to make their home here. Fred  Bennett has moved into Mrs.  Osborne's house where Jbe  Perry and family formerly  lived.

Clarkson, Pratt iRd.  Mr. Penson lived for many years  on the property now owned by  Ernie Reitze.  Despite the lack of co-operation oh the part of the weather  Easter Week brought most of  the faithful visitors to Gibsons.  Empty summer cottages were  briefly opened, and friend made  room for /friend to house the  crowd that wished to spend  their holiday week here. Maybe  by summer we can find more  hospitable weather to greet our  visitors.  * *    *  With Albert Danroth doing  the 'dozing, and T.R. Godfrey  and Co. and Art Pillings trucks  tjie hauling, the. excavation of  C. P. Ballentine's property is  rapidly taking shape. Part of the  earth is being spread on Provincial and Municipal roads, and  part'-going' to fill the Thorburn  Garage project, Tyhich is now  nearing completion.  Daylight Saving  Start* Agmfi 27  PROVINCIAL government has  settled   all   debates   on   the  merits of daylight saving time  when compared to standard, at.  least for the time being.,  In accordance with an order-  in^cbuncil vpassed   in  Victoria,  daylighf saving time will be inaugurated April 27 and will end  October 26.     -  ooters  Day at Murdoch s Landing  PENDER HARBOUR ��� Murdochs Landing was the mecca  for trap shooters on Good Friday. From Blind Bay, all over  the harbour and even from Re-  gina, Sask., and Vancouver they  came to compete in the keenly  contested events.  More and more this sport is  attaining new popularity in the  harbour due to the enthusiasm  of such well known scatter gun  experts as the Leith Brothers,  Royal Murdoch, of the Landing,  Thomas, Maynard and -Werner  * of Blind Bay; Graham, Haddock,  McLeod and Sharpe of Madeira  and others and the present shoot  will stand out as the best attended and most successful yet  held. Some of the fellows had  never shot at the traps but in  shooting they yield second place  to none and speaking as one  who has witnessed many provincial shoots, the shooting here  was good. Some contests, such  as the1 backer-up and miss-and-  out were so prolonged, with interest held at such a high ten-  i sion, that it seemed that the  loser would never be eliminated.  The layout on Leith's point  made it perfect, the gorgeous  scenery with the ocean as a  background made a perfect  set-up;_fpjc.such>^r'event..y.  ^ Th^ iadiesyy in 'numbers; ;at-  "���* tend!^$i|^^  HOLES DRILLED  FOR 22 WELLS  PENDER HARBOUR ��� Boyles  Bros. Drilling Co., drillers  Sigurd Johnson and Angelo  Samis with the help of several  men recently completed drilling  of 22 wells. Twenty-one of them  were successful.-Sam/Seely, the  Ideal water diviner, located  most of the wells which were  drilled in solid rock and all of  them except one, which was  drilled too close to .the sea shore,  contain excellent drinking  water. The depth of the wells  averaged 40 feet. The shallowest well was 21 feet deep. Royal  Murdock has the deepest which  is about 78 feet and the water  in it js approximately 28 feet  deep.  On the island in the entrance  of Pender Harbour a hole had  to be drilled 62 feet before fresh  water was struck. It now contains about 45 feet of water.  The best flow of water was  found on Savolainen's place; the  water came within seven feet of  the top of the well and a pump  working for a half hour at the  rate of 1,200 gallons per hour  could not reduce the level of the  water.  Sigurd Johnson mentioned  that the drilling at Pender Harbour was , the hardest that they  had struck for sometime; they  only averaged about 13 feet to  the bit, whereas they had averaged 235 fept to the bit at Banffi'  The diamond bits are worth $125  and abbut two thirds of this isS  recoverable. The ��� reason thait  Johnson gave for the excess  wear bn the,bits was the broken  rock formation; solid rock is  much easier to drill and hot as  hard on the diamond bits.  to providing an intent gallery,  served coffee and lunch.  In the first event of straight  .   traps, Harvey Leith ran a perfect score with brother Bob runner-up with nine out of ten.  Event No. 2���Snipe shoot, 5  birds: Winner Bob Leith; run-  ners-up Ed.

If there,are other sportsmen  in the district interested in the  further development of this  fine recreation as an outing and  as an opportunity to meet kindred spirits occasionally, they  might cbhtact Robt. Leith of  Irvines Landing and an invitation will gladly be extended to  attend the next shoot. Doubtless these will be held regularly  throughout the summer.  *.  Small Claims Court  For Peninsula  SELMA PARK ��� Sydney McKay, magistrate of Selma  Park, has been notified of his  appointment to exercise the  jurisdiction conferred by the  "Small Debts,Court Act," within that portion of the mainland  of the County of Vancouver  lying south and east of the  waters of Agamemnon Channel  and Jervis Inlet. This area  covers all districts from Pender  Harbour to and including Woodfibre..  All personal actions where the  debt or damages claimed do not  exceed one hundred dollars may  v be tried in this court. The,cost  of such action is very small.  Residents of the peninsula will  be pleased to hear about this  new court as it will enable them  to take action for the recovery  of small ��debts and accounts  without the expense of a trip  tp Vancouver or employing a  solicitor.  Those desiring further information may either phone or  write tb Magistrate McKay at  Selma- Park.

Next meeting will be held in  the community hall April 14.  Gibsons Landing  Plans Huge Fair  GIBSONS    LANDING ��� First  fair at Gibsons in a number of  years will be held in August.  Farmers'Institute at a meeting  here decided the fair would be  highlighted by a big dance.

MOBILE UNIT  REPORT AT GIBSONS  ERNIE Sargent has released the  following report on the work  of the TB X-ray unit which  visited Gibsons in the middle of  March:  "In spite of breakdowns, 525  persons were X-rayed, in a  total period of little over six  hours. This number constituted  67 per cent of the estimated  available population. If the 230*  persons who had to be turned  away because of breakdowns  could have been examined, the  percentage of the population  over 14 years of age would have .  been 92. At one period "of pile  hour and ten minutes 153 persons were X-rayed.  "Pictures of the unit at work,  taken by National Film Board  photographers, will be published in the Rotogravure Section  of the Montreal Standard.  "From a financial. viewpoint,  the unit showed a profit of  $35.62; which will be turned  over to the new hospital. This  sum, above all expenses in- ....  volved* was made possible  through the donations made by  local groups and organizations."

The meeting had the largest attendance and was the liveliest  that has been held in many a  "moon."  .There were several motions  made to change the constitution;  one was for a change in the  membership dues; a second, a  hobby committee to be formed,  and a third, that only chairman  be elected for a committee, he  to choose his own helpers. The  forming of the hobby committee  passed, and also that the chairman of a committee be elected.  The one on raising dues was defeated.  Dave Clark was instructed to  go ahead with the Copper Queen  celebration, so make a mental  note that "The" day* is May 24.  A swimming pool committee  was also elected and asked to  report back their proposals. I  am not going to say more  about the meeting except that  we have a very able and energetic executive.  * *    *  Those who heard Vic Rice and  Jimmy Newberry sing at the  Amateur Nite held by Ladies'  Auxiliary on March 21, and  wished for more encores could  Ijave had them if they had attended the Easter Sunday evening service in the Community  Church.

D. A. McDougall, president of the host braiichv-Mount  Sheei- N6_ 18$ Britannia JBeach,  was in the chair. One of the  main topics was the forming of  a fastball league to embrace  the Legion and community  teams of the three places.  A cup put up by the three  branches is to be awarded the  winner of the league. So at  present writing it looks like a  successful undertaking and good  fun for all this coming spring  and summer. There should be  a good six-team league at least.  Other matters pertaining to Legion work were discussed, with  many good thoughts and ideas  presented by those present.  * #.   #  I happened to be scouting for  items for this column on Sunday afternoon when I bumped  into Andy Proudfoot. Asking  him if he knew of any news,  his reply was, "Nothing ever  happens at Britania." Well,  thought I, the shoe is on the  other foot for those cribbage  enthusiasts. Yes! Bob Mounsey and Bus Vollans are now  supplying the fags to Bob Philip  and Tommy Reyburn. The old  law of averages has caught up  with them.  The   grapevine  informed  me  that the Squamish branch of.the.  Canadian Legion is making  plans for a Legion -Hall of their  own. Niee going, Comrades!

C.  Page Five  SOIJC  J  NEW DAILY bag limit for trout  in British Columbia, according to the recently passed  1947-48 sport fishing regulations, is cut from 15 fish to 12,  with 25 pounds and one fish  still the alternative.  Steelhead fishermen who  have been forbidden the use of  fish roe or eggs i anywhere on  Vancouver Island have a slackening of regulations to look forward to next year. Salmon eggs  are now legal bait on all rivers  except the Cowichan and Kok-  silah. Only season when the  eggs are legal, on these other  Island streams, however, is December, January and February.  Vancouver Island's trout season has been extended two  weeks at the end���from November15 to November 30. It still  opens on March 1.  jONLY 25 GRILSE  Only other notable change on  the Island is ihe year-roi*nd  fishing limit on the Pjuntledge  River.  The old upper boundary  CKWX RADIO STAR  Laurie Irving, popular CKWX  announcer, heard daily on the "Bay's  Sports Reel" with Duke McLeod at  6:15 pirn. Laurie is also heard with  Dorothy Hudson Monday through  Friday at 11:15 a.m. Dial 980 for  both of these Hudson's Bay Company  feature programs.  at the upper government bridge  is changed, to read the Island  Highway bridge.  Where grilse fishing had no  bag limits from June 1 to December 31, there is now a limit  of 25 grilse per person or per  boat, grilse to be salmon under  three pounds in weight. The  limit during the remainder of  the year for grilse is still 10 per  person, including salmon, and  20 per boat. Salmon bag limits  are unchanged.  Request of the Alouette Rod  and Gun club to close the South  Alouette River above Alco camp  the year round instead of during January, February and  March is now law.  TO CHECK GEAR  Anglers are reminded that  gear designed to catch more  than one fish at a time is unlawful except in fly fishing  or on the Fraser. River below  Mission Bridge. Fraser anglers  since last year may use two  hooks ori a line at one time.  Exception to the above rule  occurs still in*the case of trolling where one man in a boat can  have two sets of gear. Two or  more persons per boat are restricted to one line each.  Rare Geese Seen  ��� SOMETHING unusual in geese  was seen Thursday when Mr.,  and Mrs. D. M. Goudie of West-  view saw a flock of Brant, at  Wolfson Creek. They are be- y  lieved to be a very rare sight in  this, area, but Mr. Goudie surmised that they were on their  way north after the winter and  ���jihadl just stopped; here tempor-  There were 300 or 400 in the  flock sighted at:5r30 p.m. Thursday. Considerably smaller in  size than the ordinary Canada  goose usually seen here abouts,  the Brant are black with white.  Mr. and Mrs. R. T. Woodruff of  Powell River spoked the flock  near the shores of Douglas Bay,  and said there were "just scores  of them in the water very close  to the beach."

EXPERT FITTINGS  Phone few appointments���Sechelt... short, long, 2 shovt  by Jack Scott  Clothes-Horses  MOST people who live in the  city, as I do, like to get out  into the country to enjoy the  sunshine, where it doesn't have  to fight its way through a mile  of soot, or the 'green beauties of  nature or the tranquility of  small towns.  Not me, I like to get out into  the country to look at the beautiful girls.  I'm not saying that small town  gals are any prettier than city  gals, but they look prettier and  I think I know why. It's because  country women aren't chained  to Dame Fashion.  Just the other night I met a  famous dress designer from New  York who spoke in polite horror  of rough old tweeds and low-  heeled shoes and girls who go  out of their homes without a  hat. I not only disagreed with  her, but I thought she looked  terrible in the little $150 item  she happened to have on.  Give me a gal with some  rough old tweeds and her feet  in a great, big pair of sloppy  oxfords and 'her hair flying in  the breeze and you can take the  rest���and take 'em home early,  pal, because their shoes start to  hurt.  I like a neat girl and a trim  girl, but show me the ones who  look like they'd break if you  went "Boo!" at them and as far  as I'm concerned you can put  ; them back in the store window  with^the rest of the dummies.  The designer assured me that  women don't dress for themselves, whether they believe it  or not. They dress to please  men. Then why do they prop  themselves up on spikes? Why  do they dress in what this designer called stark simplicity?  Who said men wanted simplicity? Get a ribbon in your  hair, toots. Put some crinkly  stuff around your neck. ' Relax,  sweetheart, and forget what the  book says.  These famous designers always talk about making the  clothes fit the woman, of welding them to individual personalities. And what happens?  Some vague people called 'They'  enter the picture. Nobody fcnows  who 'They' are, but if 'They' are  wearing dresses an inch and a  quarter below the knee, why  every woman from Mrs. Rich-  twich down to my wife wears  her's that way, whether they  have good-looking knees or not.  The waist-line is high or it's  low because 'They' are wearing  it that way. Among women it is  quite legal to feel and express  pity for the woman who is just  too, too dumb to know what  'They' are up to, '  Personality? Why the average city woman looks as if she  had just rolled 6ff the assembly  line. And yet there isn't a man  alive who doesn't appreciate a  gal who can look as if she lyore  something because it suited her.  Nowadays the country gal is  just as up-to-the-minute as her  city cousin, but if you walk the  streets of any small town you'll  see the belles in carefree, loose  clothing that looks like a million  dollars and wouldn't even make  Page 112 of Vogue Magazine,  girls who look easy and caireless  and beautiful without studying  a book on how to do it.  ��ef*s  SEE-SAW  It seems that, when my heart is  full of care,  When dole and strife abide  where^jpeace should be,  My mind refuses to accept its'  share,  And leaves a helpless, empty  shell of me.  It seem that, when no sorrow  lifts its head,  When equity is password for  the day,  My heart, released from cares  that now are dead,  Cannot find words to match its  joyous lay.  There seems a balance in the  mortal mould,  A teeter-totter where emotions  play,  Pleasure and sorrow take alternate hold,  And lift the other's waning  weight away.^  And now a sorrow, ytow a joy is  mine,  And now the balance seems to  lie at rest,  But yet I know that one arm  will incline  To trace its random discord in  my breast.  Quelqu'un  PROTEST SUIT  AGAINST SEAMEN  "THE ATTACK on trade union  leaders in Quebec is a threat  to the civil rights of all citizens,"  Rev. Alex Cameron, secretary-  treasurer of the Quebec committee for the. defence of trade  union rights said recently. He  referred to the trials of Harry  Davis, Conrad Sauras and Dan  Daniels of the Seamen's Union.  These men are being prosecuted  under the Canada Shipping Act,  which is obsolete and based on  18th century British sea law."  Rev. Cameron claimed "they  are charged with boarding a  ship without the captain's permission, despite the fact that  this was legal under a union  agreement with the company.  "It is clear that the clause was  not designed to prevent legitimate union activity, but is being  used by the shipping companies  to prevent union leaders from  carrying on their necessary  functions," said Mr. Cameron.  "Trade unions are' an essential  part of our democracy, and the  use of such anachronistic legislation for union-smashing purposes must give concern to every  citizen.  He called for telegrams ahd  letters to be sent to the federal  and Quebec governments by all  democratic citizens and organizations protesting against these  infringements of civil rights and  demanding that these charges  against the union leaders be  withdrawn.  Trailer Total Loss  After Collision  GEORGE Haddock, of Pender  Harbour, whose troller sank  near Germaine's Island Thursday after a collision with the  co-operative packer T-HL, is a  former Powell River resident.  He enlisted from this district  seven years ago and served  overseas with the Westminster  regiment.  Returning to reside at Pender Harbour, he purchased his  fishing troller with his gratuity  money and has been operating it  for nearly a year. The boat is  a complete loss after Thursday's  mishap.  His mother, Mrs. D. Mcintosh,  who resides iri Vancouver, is a  sister of ,Mrs. J. O'Connor, Powell River.  THE CASES of veterans who  have been otherwise than honourably discharged will be reviewed by iMr.A. and where  possible the severity of penalties  imposed will be mitigated, according to a recent announcement from Ottawa.  Thus as a result of favourable  revision after review, certain  veterans will from time to time  be awarded war service gratuity  and the privilege of re-establishment credits. This will not  entitle the veteran to other  privileges under the Veterans  Rehabilitation Act. It will,  however, entitle him to consideration under the Business  and Professional Loan's Act.  It is not necessary for the  veteran to make application for  a review of his or her case, as  the review is being carried on  automatically by the department, and the veteran himself  will be duly advised in a pleasant way when he receives a  statement and his first cheque  for war service gratuity.  It intended to carry this review further as time goes on,  and it is possible in some instances that a veteran may have  his discharge certificate picked  up and a new one issued showing him to be honourably discharged. Such a veteran will  then be able to avail himself or  herself of all the privileges  which an honourable discharge  carries with it. This second  review will likewise be automatic.

Games, dining  rooms, snack bars, and exhibits  will be housed in tents. In addition to these there will be outdoor events staged on the  grounds themselves. These latter features will be varied during each of the three days of the  carnival.  While this event is being  sponsored by the Canadian Legion, it is actually a Gibsons  Landing show, with not just the  playground, but the entire community as the stage. And the  success of the first one would  pave the way for bigger and  better events of a similar nature  in the future.  ��� n_WM���v+*ma*^m*M��m^mm*~m*m  _nt**-H_-%^-M_^_--i_^n  M.V.

Which is about the only  hobby I know of that gets 100  per cent applause from the male  members of the family, and  enthusiasm no end while you are  amusing yourself at the flourbin  and bakeboard. However, be  that as it may, it is 'the nature  of the brute, so to make the job  more streamlined try weekly  menus, write them out, shop for  the items,' and do plan in advance. This way you can often  pass a new dish you wanted to  try, and before they even mutter "whatzat stuff?" they will  have eaten it, and found it good.  Men are so suspicious of new  foods.

The first store  visited still has some tapioca.  Soak a quarter cup in milk to  cover. Drain milk into measuring cup, and add enough to make  two cups . . . proceed from there  as with the minute tapioca we  used to have . . . add whipped  egg whites, garnish, and dessert is ready.

Their sweet mustard  pickles looked good, in large  jars. Also, a seed special _���'..'.  ten per cent off if you buy over  a dollar's worth.  Three. pounds of coffee in a  very nice jar figures out to coffee at regular prices, and the  big jar for a nickel, which is  your money's worth and fair  enough. At this stop (next-  store - in - line) new bedding  plants are now carried. The  "brassica" family had first  showing with cabbage plants,  sprouts, etc., in flats from 15  cents doz. up. A few potted  plants, too, and snapdragons.  Grapefruit juice at $3 a case is  a lay-away item. It goes up iri  summer again, I believe. A  good suggestion to save you a  trip in, if you are so busy with  planting, is to drop your order  into the Thursday mail, and it  will be delivered free of charge,  at cash and carry prices, on Saturday. Local mail order service  for rural customers.  Keep an eye on the blackboard outside the local meat  market. Some specials fast  week and more promised. This  store is closed Mondays while  the proprietor shops for you in  Vancouver, in person. He hopes  to bring home the butter as well  as the bacon. v  GREEN VEGETABLES  The oldest % store in| Gibsons y  (and if you are wondering'  where, brush up on local history ) I reports��that Tuesday and  Friday are the best days to shop  f for green groceries. The spinach arrived icy and crisp, and  all the salad fixings. I saw some  glace as well as marachino cherries there, tempting me to make  a fruit cake even if it is spring.  Bakery news: the best time to ,  arrive if you wish to  have  a  choice is 1 p.m., when you catch  the hot breads and rolls just up  from the ovens, all spicy smelling  and  warm.    Mondays  and  Thursdays they bake cinnamon  buns, and Tuesdays and Fridays  meat pies.   Birthday cakes can  ���; be ordered, and these come all  prettied up with fluffy frosting  and the cakes are good, moist  ahd    really   .quite    reasonably  priced.    In the grocery section  a few fresh ipineapples are ap-  pearing,   just   ripe   enough   for  eating   or ^ cooking  right   now.  Cocoa is in good supply, and a  well known brand  is on  display.   Occasionally you get condensed  milk  here  that   makes  the best refrigerator ice cream,  the chocolate recipe.is favourite  at our house.    Dried figs and  dates   are   better   than   candy  tucked iii the school lunch box,  and  a  good  supply is around: ^.  Coconut for topping cakes will  be ordered soon, even if it is  very expensive, and if possible,  I'll let you know when this community store is putting it on the  counter.
