It was decided that the  fire was caused by Hodson filling- a kerosene-burning Primer  stove   with   an   open   container  and  an   uncovered   flame   was  present.    When the  oil caught  on fire the small enclosed cabin  must have  filled  quickly  with  smoke  and  fumes  which  soon  overpowered   Hodson   and    he  fell helplessly to the floor.    He  died of asphyxia and second degree burns.' y  Building Conference  Commences Thursday  KEEN interest is being shown in  ' the proposed conference on  school buildings, grounds and  equipment to be held at the University of B.C.: from April 10  to 12.

Auxiliary Observes  Fourteenth Year  GIBSONS LANDING ��� The  Women's Auxiliary of the  Canadian Legion celebrated its  fourteenth anniversary March  21 by entertaining husbands and  escorts at a dinner and social  evening at the Legion Hall.  Three charter members were  honored guests, Mrs. H. Bartle,  Mrs. A. Pilling and Mrs: A.  Morris.  Mrs. Bartle and Mrs. Pilling  were presented with the gold  Legion pin for past presidents,  and Mrs. Morris received a gift.  .;''&���      '  E:   .:  urse Tells or experiences  With UNRRA in War  GRANTHAMS LANDING���Men  of the A.O.T.S. met in Gibsons  Memorial Church Hall, March  21, and had their wives as their  guests to dinner. The period  following was a visitation  among members and friends,  after which all moved upstairs  to the church where the guest  speaker was Nurse Mary Hen- *  derson of Soames Point, who  gave an address on her work  and experience with U.N.R.R.A.  during the war years.  Nurse Henderson started her  travels from Washington to New  �� York where, with 50 other nursing sisters and some thousands  of G.I.'s boarded the Aquitania  and sailed for Great Britain.  Disembarking at Gourock,  Scotland, the party entrained  for London, and for a few days  were there during the bombardment of the city by the Germans. Again boarding ship and  after an interesting voyage they  arrived at Port Said. They travelled to Cairo along the side  Of the Suez canal.  . From the headquarters of .  U.N.R.R.A., in Cairo Nurse Henderson was assigned to El Shatt  refugee camp situated about a  half hour's drive from the city  of Suez.    The camp contained  Italy from the Dalmatian coast  only to be moved from there as  military operations increased.  The majority of the refugees  were women and children and  the men were middle aged.  CONDITIONS  Living quarters were large  tents housing about 20 people.  Often four or five families occupied one tent and got*along well  together.  Many of. the tents were made  quite attractive with hand-made  benches at the door and little  garden plots with a few sprouts  showing through the desert  sand.  The Yugoslavs are an industrious and independent race  with a desire to govern themselves.  The huge camp was carefully  laid out under sanitary condi- ���  tions and ample food supplied,  the  women  doing  the  cooking  and kitchen work.  In the camp workshops were  carpenters, tinsmiths, tailors,  shoemakers and artists. The  tools \vere mostly hand made  and the work produced, remarkable.  There was a 400-bed hospital  of huts and tents and many of  the girl refugees were trained as  nurses' aides.  Owing to the great changes  in temperature, with hot days  and cold nights there were many  cases of pneumonia and rheumatism.  UNUSUAL  BEAUTY  These, refugees missed the  beauty of their native land with  its vista of mountains, trees and  srea and found it hard to adjust  themselves to the barren desert,  although it had a beauty all its  own and a desert sunset was  something to be long remembered.   ,.'  From El Shatt camp could be_  seen  the  bare  hills  of Attica. "  The   Suez   canal   was   within  W. A. Musicale  Great Success  GRANTHAMS LANDING ���  Harmony group of the W.A. of  the United Church held their  annual "Musicale" at the Guest  House on Saturday, March 29,  when some 80 people enjoyed a  night of song and story. Prof.  James Henderson was the genial  chairman and had his audience  open the programme with the  singing of O Canada. Mr. Don  Ferguson was ne^t with "Mel-  odion" selections and had everyone tingling to the strains of  "The Road to the Isles" and  the "Barren Rocks of Eden."  Next was a duet by Mrs. Alexander and. Mrs. Cornish  Brahm's "Lullaby," which was  well received, and they responded with the rollicking  melody "Funiculi - Funicula."  Mrs. Orville Fisher of Vancouver delighted everyone with  "Angus Macdonald," "The Song  of the Banshee," "In Oor Kale  Yerd," and other favorites.  A reading in the Negro dialect by Miss Winnie Doherty  i^dyttie-aixdi^nce tittering,xand  Don Poole got a great hand #Ttti  "Old Man River" and other  Negro melodies.  Jim Rennie filled in with  'Robert of Sicily" and Joe Poole  sang one of Masefield's sea  songs and had to repeat it again  and again, and as a climax rendered "The Glory Road" in  great, style. Mrs. Pateman was  asked by special request to read  a letter from a G.I. which caused a fund of merriment.  Our pianists, Mrs. Ted Poole  and Mrs. Harry Breaden deserve special mention for their  happy dispositions and untiring efforts ?in making the Musicale a great success.  Mr. William Banks proposed a  hearty vote of thanks to all the  artists and Prof. Henderson in  behalf of all present thanked  Mr. and Mrs. Steadman for their  hospitality.  walking distance and its banks  a chosen spot for meditation.  Entertainments were held  with native dancing and choir  singing and the nursing aides  escorted to British army messes  in the area with the difference  in language no stumbling block.  The staff consisted of English,  Americans, Canadians, New  Zealanders and Yugoslavs, and  week-ends were spent in Cairo  once a month where they enjoyed hot baths and the bright  lights.  Egypt seemed a land of great  contrasts with the teeming,  noisy dirty cities and clean desert lands. It evidenced great  wealth and extreme poverty.  Country scenes reminded  Nurse Henderson of the Biblical  pictures of her Sunday School  days���the palm trees, the donkeys and camels, yokes of oxen  ploughing the fields, women in  black robes and jugs on their  heads, and the men in long white  ones    amid   the   very   narrow  y,w'3u��"*l.s|'"'!"  viaoioiA  ..*,...r.**.?.!*..y,,tt���~.<&.X.lXtt.*lXiJ*jQ Page Two  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B.

Pro-tek, popular to save hands at this-time of  year is back in stock, and hand  lotions. You might stock up oh  items like lotions, colognes, "an-  soforth'' when the one-cent sale  starts the 16th of the month.  Washing blankets reminds "me  of   clothes   lines.

Now that the less appealing  part of the spring cleaning done,  and if there is a dollar or two to  be squeezed out of the budget,  of you-kriow-who, a few inex-.  pensive items to brighten the  house up ��� should be in order.  The store with the upstairs department sells Trimz chintz  drapes that are flowery and  very colorful. Table mats  equally bright, in sets of three  for 89 cents save laundry, and  add the spot of interest as well.  Treat your kitchen, and yourself to a hanging shelf that  holds eight spice shakers designed for utility. Of course if  you can add a new lamp so much  the better. A rather unusual  one which would make a conversation piece in any modern,  room is now hob-nobbing with  some ��� hardware which is also  interesting to the man handy  around the house.  T r i 1 i g h t s and fluorescent  lights are appearing generally,*  and you shall soon have a choice.  In the general store that carries  the crisp green groceries I noted  a few radios of interesting .design, especially the plastic ones  that are supposed to be part of  the kitchen, equipment now-  days.,  Speaking of groceries, enjoy  a green onion and lettuce salad  one of the, at-home evenings.  Try syrup in rhubarb pies, and  if you are haying trouble finding that see the grocery farther  down the road where hot cross  buns will- soon go on sale, if not  already gone. NaUeyfs new relish at 25 cents is the closest  thing to homemade I have  found. Very good with, all cold  meat, or hamburgeris. Don't forget that even- X& cents-of mushrooms does something to gravy.  Hope the Easter rabbit is  using his long ears to take a  hint, and has shopped wisely.  This year there is no excuse  with all our new stores.

Meal Taken Off  Ration List  LAST THURSDAY, meat rationing for consumers ended.  The announcement was made  by Finance Minister Douglas  Abbott in the House of Commons. *  Meatless days in restaurants  and hotels, Tuesdays and Fri-(  days, remain in effect. All  slaughtering regulations and all  quota regulations are also continued. N  Meat rationing was first imposed in Canada late in 1943 and  suspended in March* 1944. It  was re-introduced on September  10, 1945, with the specific intention of reducing domestic consumption and thus making  available larger quantities of  meat for shipment overseas.  This objective was realized  and.' consumption dropped from  147 pounds per person a year to  135- pounds = a^dt ��� at,v>i>reserit is  running af about 132 pounds.  The prices board expresses its  thanks to the Canadian housewives who put up with the inconvenience of coupon rationing  and now appeals to them to  confine their buying to absolute  requirements and if possible, to  observe meatless days in their  own homes.  In Ban, Italy, a suspected  jewel thief was hypnotized, and  he led police to where he had  hidden the jewels.       f  Arrival of nearly 5,000,000  pounds of flour from the-United  States has relieved ay bread  shortage in Bolivia and ended  public demonstrations protest-  ingagairist lack of food.  ines  From  Canadian  Weeklies  THE SMALLER-town press of  Canada, better known as "the  weeklies," keep a sound finger  on the pulse of the nation and  _ this is typified in the type of  editorial material ground out,  laboriously or otherwise, but to  the point.   Take for instance the   ���Friday, April 4,  1947  Peacetime Army  Asks Recruits  ARMY headquarters announced  that a personal letter from  Major-General E. G. Weeks,  adjutant-general, is being sent  to every fit general service? veteran, honorably discharged from  the Canadian army (Active),  advising him of the opportun-  North   Battleford  Optimist,  up,   ities which exist in the peace-  in northern Saskatchewan where  at this writing below-zero temperatures  still  prevail.    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:&itehei# is a b��tter*pfete#  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   iri-'  come.    The punch line:   "while  Mr. Towers would have us believe that the Canadian dollar  . of today is still worth around 80  cents, we can orly 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 \yeyburn  Review points out a bill to make,  this   inalienable   right   possible  is being introduced in the parliament of 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."

"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 limita- '  tions:   adds,* "Here we  are  on  the  northern  half  of  a  great  continent    fearful    of    letting...  people come iri.

The pamphlet gives  a summary of the life of the  prpfessional soldier in the active force, which came into being on October 1, 1946.  It gives the answers on such  matters as trades, the new rates  of pay, pensions, living quarters, s  enlistment conditions and pro-  cedtire-and numerous other subjects in which the veteran will  be interested.  With the pamphlet, a -postcard is provided for those who  are interested in joining the  active* force. All the veterans  need do is fill in the card and  drop it "in the mail.

Gardening News  (By Peri-Winkle)  WHEN EITHER the amateur or  the seasoned gardener plans  for summer-flowering plants he  thinks of plants which will give  a maximum of bloom���plants  for this place or that���plants  with plenty of flowers for cutting ahd plants for a large  splash of color and, above all,  plants which are not fussy and  temperamental.  There is no more fascinating  task' in the gardener's curriculum than that of making out the  seed order.  It is important to secure good  seed and the best is the cheapest  by far.  It is better to put a ten-cent  plant in a dollar hole than to  put a. dollar plant in a ten-cent  hole.  In buying seeds today one is  assured of a high percentage of  them germinating, so one should  plant thinly and thin out as  directed on the package.  The gardener should prepare  the flats (deep ones) and soil  now. The soil should be finely  sifted compost of sandy loam  and leaf mould. Mix some fine  charcoal with it to assist-in preventing damping off. Stir this  rotting soil several times between now and the last of February when it should be placed  in the flats and the seed planted.  Seeds have a lifting power  relative.to their sizeo They respond to cool or. warm,temperature. Some can be planted  early in the season, while .others  must Wait for warm Weather,  unless there is a heated place  of 50-55 degrees.  In the cool type are sweet  peas, candytuft, corn-flowers,  clarkia, calendula, larkspur,  linafia, godita and annual chrysanthemum.  ;;. The warm type are zinnias;-  marigolds, lobelia, geraniums,  salvia, j asters; yerhena arid  petunias. '      .

The Bank Pen!  IT LOOKS deceivingly innocent, says the Victoria ..Colonist. One might say of the public  pen resting on its trim mahogany rack at the  bank counter that there was a steady-going,  none-of-your-nonsense, and a wholly reliable  kind of a pen. But is it? Not by the record.  That simple and seemingly useful article has  been too long in the public hands. It has acquired mannerisms. Its hard, unyielding point  will stab through any paper. Its steel, so  polished and smooth, will suck up fountains of  ink, and let them go in a deluge without an  instant's warning. Only an individual with  the patience of Job could write neatly with a  bank pen, and even then, we suspect, he would  have trouble with his figures. The public is  so indecisive about its mathematics and the  bank pen seems to have acquired all the public  faults and not a few of its own. It should be  superannuated. Nothing more temperamental  than a common pencil should ever appear at  any public counter at the bank. Reams of good  paper would be saved thereby, to say nothing  of public and private tempers.���Comox Free  Press.

Home Owners Without Homes  THERE IS perhaps no regulation so hard to  enforce without injustice to one party or the  other as the anti-eviction rules. This is illustrated in that the government, which has given  such minute thought to veteran re-establishment,' adppted an eviction regulation which puts  some of that class at a special disadvantage.  The reference is to the regulation which permits only proprietors who bought their property  between November 1, 1944, and July 25, 1945,  to evict their tenants on reasonable notice in  order to gain occupancy for themselves.  What this means is that only civilian buyers  are affected, since there were practically no  veteran-buyers in the period named.  This is a real disadvantage for the veteran  who was overseas during the r period since he  was not then in position to buy a house in Canada. Those who returned after,July 25, 1945,  and bought houses, cannot secure possession  unless the tenants vacate voluntarily.  The benefit of this time' limitation applies  only to civilian buyers and to those servicemen  who were in Canada in time to buy houses before the deadline. These are able to gain possession of their homes if they can prove the  "need." But the veteran, with few exceptions,  had no chance to buy duririg the period specified ;/an^^ if >he has bought since he cannot ,  obtain possession of his property.���Edmonton  Bulletin.

Pudney, manager of Carrall and  Hastings Streets branch of the  Bank of Montreal diiring the  course of a recent visit to their  sub-agency at Gibsons Landing,  "but to fulfil this function to the  greatest extent it must have  local support."  "We want not only to watch  Gibsons grow, but- to grow with  Gibsons." Mr. Pudney then  went on to say "While, in spite  of the adverse weather conditions and bad roads, we have  made steady progress since we;  opened in Gibsons about 4%'  months ago, there are quite ai  number of residents still maintaining bank accounts at other  bratidhes-or^banks in Vancouver.;  We appreciate their loyalty to:��  their present bankers but.would!  point out that by carrying ac#  counts wi$i us, i.��. ^rrall ancfr  ' HaMi^^iee^-bgliiep they liofc  ���pxitej;hav&y:tfe;;':%ihefit.. of m  "town" account but have bankr  ing facilities brought to their4  doors so to speak, twice a week.

Yesterday, from our "look-outv" we  could count the passengers and  pick out our friends as they disembarked. .: ���     -  Today -the scene has changed  to a panorama of steamers,  scows, trucks and stevedores,  and the ;midnight hour hears the  toot-toot of the tugboat r replacing'tthe hoot of the owl.

Well, I was best man at the  wedding I mentioned and helped my bachelor friend end it  all, even slipping him the noose,  a beautiful 10-karat affair that  must have set him back a cool  $12.50.  It is a touching sight to see  a happy couple, at the altar, still  unmarked. There stood the  bride, dreaming about the mysteries of a cook book and there  the groom, dreaming about what  has happened to his bank book.  ���/-... How young, how valiant they  looked, perched on the thresh-  hold of a wonderful hew life of  overdue bills, hungry mouths  to feed and all the other joys of  that one-way street, matrimony.  The music, it seems to me, is  particularly fitting. I like that  bluntly sombre theme which so  plainly reveals that Mendelssohn was a married man when  he wrote it, probably spurred  on by his wife screaming at him  from the kitchen.  Nobody ever tripped lightly  down the aisle to the "Wedding  March." It requires a good  ruthless plod.  And the look that the.bride  gives the groom in that crucial  moment just before the axe  drops! Utter confidence and  trust are there. No wonder  women cry at weddings when  they remember that they too,  looked at that moth-eaten thing  next to, thern with much-the  'same\eipf6sjsibn:  -' '-^   '"������'���'���'���'"-���-  That's one thing about weddings that time doesn't change.  The bride always looks frail,  petite and gentle. Even the calloused married men, looking at  that vision of loveliness in old  lace and new lipstick, find it  hard to realize that soon the  little lady will be wearing the  pants and that her great, big,  strong husband will know what  it is like to be kicked around  with, the rest of us.  The groom adds to this delightful illusion, speaking in a  firm, manly voice, a far cry from  the plaintive, beaten tone he  will use in the centuries to  come.  Then, before you know it, the  boy and the girl are husband  and wife, the sweetie-rpie and  lamby-child are Mr. and Mrs.,  the match has been made, the  seconds are out of the ring and  the battle of matrimony has begun, y       ���  The rest of us old married  people watch the happy young  couple run merrily out of the  church into the shower of confetti and pull awa;y" on their  honeymoon. It sort of does  something to you.'  We get all misty-eyed and  sometimes the wife is so choked  up with emotion-that it will be  several minutes before she will  think to tell you what a fool  you made of yourself ogling the  bridesmaids.
