Schools in District 46  Subject of Discussion  ROBERTS  CREEK���It was by  request of the Roberts Creek  P.T.A,  ^ai   Mr. .G.\ Marsdon,  chairman of the board of trustees, Mr. A. S. Trueman, high  school principal; Mr. R. Elliott,  elementary school principal; Mr.  1 A. Funnell, trustee for Roberts  , Creek    district,    and   Mrs.    R.  Bums, secretary of the board,  took part in a panel discussion  entitled "The School Situation  in District 46;"  Mr. Marsdon gave a wbrd picture of the school situation as it  is today in District 46, which  takes in 12 schools, from Briton  River, head of Jervis Inlet, to  Port. Mellon, * including 'Bovven'  Island. Only four or five might  be termed good schools, that is,  good buildings, well equipped  and not overcrowded. -Some'are  very overcrowded and some  distinctly below standard.  NEW BUILDINGS  Mr. Funnell spoke on plans  for the future arid presented  blueprints for threeMie# schools  --���8-roorh junior, senior high  school for Gibsons Landing tby'.  which it is hoped students from.  Port Mellon will be brought in  when Gibsons-Port Mellon road  is completed; a 4-room school at  Roberts Creek, which will dispense with Elphinstone school  and East Roberts schools; arid a  school at Madeira Park; These  three are modern, up-to-date  schools with auditoriums, which  will be available to the community and in the case of the  Gibsons school provision for industrial arts, i.e.;, home economics and commercial courses.  Mr. Elliott spoke to the question from the standpoint of the  elementary, bpard. He stressed  particularly the matter of overcrowding in the classroom, and  the desirability of clubs for  after-hour activity.  Mr. Trueman spoke from the  standpoint of the high school  and pointed ��� out- the fact that  'many children leaving school  here, would go to work in larger  centres and-yit was desirable  that in the school they should  receive as much as possible,  education that Would fit them  ai_ywhei& 3E3Ce said the aca-  deriiic approach is not for all  pupils, and facilities should be  provided for students whose  abilities are nonacademic.  Mrs, Burns explained school  financing as It now: |s following  tte Cameron report and supplementary legislation./   -  It is expected that. the bylaw concerning the cost of the.  proposed new' schools will be  presented to ratepayers this fall.  KITSILANO, a district of Vancouver, in 1928 gave birth to  a boys' band, now famous  throughout the world. The band  was founded, and is still conducted by Arthur W. Delamont.  Living near the General Gordon school in Vancouver, Mr.  Delamont watched the pupils  pass and repass his home day  after day. To this man: who  loved music, they offered a challenge. Why should the latent  abilities of these perpetually-  moying children not be harnessed and welded into something worthwhile?  Dreams are but the first stage  of reality, and it was riot long  before the first steps in the or-  . ganizing' of the Kitsilano Boys'  Band were taken. At first, the  most .common reaction to this  scheme was either lassitude or  ridicule, for the pupils of this  school were very young. Skeptics pointed out that no successful bands existed whose members ranged in age from 8 to 12  years.  ' But Arthur Delamont persisted arid gained the enthusiastic  support of the school principal,  Captain R. P. Steeves. As a result, on an evening in January*  1928, -';sthe#irst ^practice- off the;  General yGprdon ySchool Band  was held-ih the gymnasium.  TWO ESSENTIALS  A band needs, at its beginning,  two essentials���players and instruments. Amohg a group of  school*boys, the former is easy  to find, but the latter presents  a real problem. Members were  told to provide their own, and,  by various strange means, they  did.^ Attics and basements were  searched, friends and relatives  were approached, second-hand  stores were canvassed, dnd by  these, and other methods,  enough material was,, collected  to begin.  Weird and wonderful the collection appeared, but to these  untrained boys, they all were  satisfactory, for they made  noises, an'd what more could a  boy ask? Since that early beginning, the Vancouver Kitsilano Boys' Band, with its ever<-  changing personnel (as boys  have a habit of growing out of  things juvenile) has made an  impression everywhere it has  played.  BRITISH TOURS  The band has made three  tours of the British Isles, and  s about a dozen trips across Canada. It appeared at the Chicago  World's Fair in 1933, and tbok  the highest award in its class,  making the band a world champion. It has taken high honors?  in musical competitions in England, where,the band competed  against adult aggregations, but  still took first place.  To indicate the popularity of  this . ptitst^ding boys' band,  when-it made its first tou^^  England arid Scotland in 1934,  musical directors and booking  agentsyiyere very skeptical about  presenting the band to the people of England, figuring that  because its personnel consisted  of teen-aged boys,yit would not  amount to much.  This   was   before   the   band  landed over there, but after  hearing the band * in its first  wireless program over the BBC,  such people changed their impression, and gave the band  every encouragement and help  in providing engagements. The  band literally sold itself to those  grand people in England and  Scotland,* and after playing at  many places for a week at a  time, two performances a day,  with no music repeated, unless  , by very special request from the  audiettce, the band departed and  usually left many in tears as a  result Of the friendships and  musical interest aroused.  FAREWELL CONCERT  Perhaps the greatest concert  of them all was.the farewell appearance of the band in Dunfermline, Scotland, birthplace of  Andrew Carnegie, when over  12,000 persons stormed Pitten-  crief Park bandstand, to bid the  boys farewell. There were tears  in the eyes of those Scottish  folk, to whom the boys had endeared themselves. They had  contracted, to play for orie week  in Dunfermline, but popular demand held the band oyer for  several days longer, -y���}'���:-    ^  y During these Old Country  tours, 1934, 1936 and 1939, the  band found many opportunities  to sight-see, and visit all the...  historical places of interest, particularly in London, where they  made their headquarters. While  in this great dity, the band made  a short picture for tlie Pathe  Film Company, and seven recordings for the Regal Zono-  phone Gramophone Co.  Next year the Jband has been  invited to make yits fourth tour  of England* Scotland and "V^ales,  and p r e p a rations are now  under way for this big tour, it  being the first tour for the present personnel of the barid tb the  Old Land, as the one previous, *  in 1939, was cut short with the  outbreak of war.  DOOMED SHIP  In England at that time, the  band was at first scheduled to  return to Canada on the SS.  "Athenia," ��� but as it would  mean splitting up the band, it  was decided for them to remain  over a few days longer and passage was obtained on the "Empress of Britain," September 2.  The next day, Britain declared  war on Germany, and word was  sent throughout a shocked  world, telling of the sinking of  the "Athenia" with the loss of  125 lives, by a German submarine.  The band's trip back to Canada was far different from the  previous ones. A tenseness prevailed during the entire voyage,  and rumors of nearby "submarines were common. The ship '  carried 500 more passengers  than was customary, and remained "blacked out" ^during  the entire trip. Matches and  other lights were forbidden, and  all passengers wore their lifebelts constantly. Everyone was  Worried, but the band did its  best; to relieve the strain by  giving concerts on board. ���  The black ship was successful  in its mission, and after zigzagging at full speed across the  Atlantic, finally berthed at  Montreal. Never did Canada  look so good to the boys! The  reception given to the band on  its journey back across Canada,  and at Vancouver, was tremendous.  Many of the former personnel  of the Vancouver Kitsilano  Boys' Band, who had made  either the first or second tours  of the Old Country, were destined to make yet another trip  across the Atlantic, but this  time wearing the uniform of one  of the three services, navy, army  or air force. Of these members,  the band is justly proud.  The history of this much-  travelled band, which appeared  in San Francisco in 1937, having been invited to take part in  the Golden Gate Bridge Opening Fiesta, is a memorable one.  While in San Francisco, the  band received much attention,  and   was   honored   in   several  WayS.     '������';;'  By sharing in a religious service on board the U.S.S. "West  Virginia" it became the first  Canadian band ever to play on  an American battleship. During a monster boxing fiesta, it  played at the Civic Auditorium.  For the great military and naval  parade, at was the only band on  the reviewing stand.  GREAT LEADER  Conductor Arthur W. Delamont is deserving of much  acreditfor the-great wdrjt lie has  achieved with this band. He  was born in Hereford, England,  in 1892, one of five boys, all of  whom were given an early love  of band music by their father.  He was married in 1917, and  they have a married son and  daughter, Gordon, who leads his  own orchestra in Toronto, and  Vera, who. is a well-known singer, makes her home up in Athabasca.  So popular is Mr. Delamont as  a conductor of juvenile bands,  that he has been/called upon to  also be bandmaster of six other  junior bands in Vancouver and  district. On several occasions,  he has presented all these bands,  along with the Kitsilano band*  on the same stage in a massed  band demonstration which has  stirred the heart of all listeners.  During the war years he also  conducted the Air Force Cadets  Band.  This world-famous band will  visit Sechelt peninsula at the  end of May, prior to a tour of  the Pacific coast down to Los  Angeles.  Commence Pulpwood  Cutting Near Mill  GIBSONS  LANDING ��� T.  R.  Godfrey & Co., Ltd., of Gibsons Landing, have commenced  cutting pulpwood on the Port  Mellon townsite west of the  mill.  The first step of the project  entails clearing the timber from  approximately 300 acres around  the mill to allow for expansion  of the residential area. All  pulpwood will be processed at  the Sorg Pulp Company at Port  Mellon.  VIHOI02A  AHvnan mfiofiiAOHd Page Two.  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.

PA, 3348  A BUSINESS of my own is the  theme of a little booklet for  veterans which has been issued  by the Bank of Montreal. It is  called "What's the Score on  These Veterans' Loans?" and is  about the new Veterans' Business and Professional Loans Act.  In it the bank answers, in the  straightforward words of one of  their managers, a series of questions put by a veterari who  wants to know "the score" for  himself and for his�� friends.  Copies are freely available at  the local office of the,bank.  There has been a certain  amount of doubt and misapprehension as to what the Veterans'  Loaris Act would enable banks  to do in the way of making  loans to veterans who have  started, or who wish to start, a  business of their own. An unfortunate delay in the supplying  of the government's printed  forms and details of the regulations did not help matters.  Now the ��ank of Montreal  has brought out this attractive  little volume which really  answers the question put on its  cover.   It dispels, too, any ideg  that the bank is less than enthusiastic   about   advancing  money under the terms of the  act.  SOUND VENTURE  Running   through   the   foreword  and  the  answers  to  the  veteran's. questions is a wholehearted .endorsement    of    the  widespread desire for "a business of my own."   But the bank  does   not   hesitate   to   impress  veterans with the fact that they  must   have   a   sound   business  proposition.   Besides their,  money,   veterans   are  investing  their time, effort, and their very  future in these new businesses,  and   the   government   and   the  banks  'would   not   be   serving  these citizens well if they assisted in ventures which had no  reasonable chance of success.  A long list of businesses and  professions in which the Bank  of Montreal has been assisting  veterans "ever since the first  veterans got back into civies" is  a veritable directory of what  may constitute a sound business  proposition for the ambitious  veteran.  Soon after VJ-Day this same  bank brought out a valuable  little book for veterans called  "Getting Off on the Right Foot."  The sequel just published might  well have been called "Standing  on Your Own Feet," and makes  worthwhile reading for those  many veterans whose ambition  is "a business of my own."

Page Three  CRICHTON  HAWKSHAW  Correspondent  AS I SAID last week I hoped to  be able to give you the second  episode of "Four Gals in ana  Olds," so here it is, also the*  third. The gals, travelling along ,  towards Salt Lake City looking  for four "Riders of the Purple  Sage" saw nothing but Mormon  bishops. On arriving at Salt  Lake City which is a beautiful  planned city with wide streets,  flower-lined and startling coloring of mountains at twilight, the  gals heard an organ recital at  the Tabernacle _ by Dr. Frank  Asper. They took in the museum  and saw Brigham Young's possessions, the building not large  enough to hold all the pictures  of his wives.  At Zion Park they slept the  night   in   a   rustic   cabin, very  rustic  (outside specialists)   and  the gal asleep first is best off,  as all four being human, snore.  Up   early   they .began   a   slow  drive   for   38   miles   of   sheer  beauty,   stopped   to   pick  some  wild   flowers   and   almost   got  arrested.    Then they continued  ���on to the Grand Canyon which  is impossible for one person to _  describe���they say not to miss  it if you are ever that way.   The  desert is more easily described  with the one word "hot," it being   111   in  the   shade   and   of  course no shade.   They thought  some   of   the   cactus   blossoms  were beautiful  but  there   was  no slowing down in the heat and  on they went the 400 miles to  Arizona.   So endeth the second  chanter  ���_. The third brings "The Wayward Bus" over the border to  Mexico, the shops being fascinating but the main Canadian  thought being which store can  we get the best and most for the  least.

They all went  to a big barn dance, the barn  being decorated with cowboy  plaques and cattle brands, very  interesting to them���fiddle and  foot music. On Mother's Day,  19 honored Sybil's mother, all  of them relatives except the  'other three gals. Off to church  and back to a grand family dinner . of turkey, etc. The gals,  while on the ranch, had lots of  fun on a real round-up���chucked in with all cow-hands and  took lots of pictures on horseback, almost needing Bob Moun-  sey's crane to get them on. They  also needed someone to holel on  the 10-gallon hats as they swung  up. Well, my dear readers,  never was so much done by so  few.

Pop  (Gordon Reeves) didn't suspect  the strong competition his three-  year-old son would give him,  when he saw him armed with a  spool of Mom's linen thread ahd  a stick. Well Barrie caught the  only fish that was caught that  day!  * *.   *  We hear that Vivian Klein  beat the stork to Pender 'Harbour Hospital by five minutes.  "That's one of them off the stork  list!" beamed Vivian with a sigh  of relief when she left her passenger at the hospital door. The  proud father and mother of the  bouncing boy are Mr. and Mrs.  James Sabo of the Hall Road,  Roberts Creek.  * *    *  BACK FROM SOUTH  Mrs. Gebrgina Johnston returned recently to the Creek  after spending the better part of  six months in Tampa, Florida,  as guest of her brother and sister-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. W. R.  Turner.  Mrs. Johnston travelled, by  bus, making several stopovers,  including Los Angeles and New  Orleans. We can quote her as  saying that anyone desiring a  pleasant and "reasonably priced  trip need not put that trip off  any longer while air-cooled,  streamlined buses are in operation, and the. courtesy of the  bus drivers is surpassed only by  their good looks!  A point of interest was the*  dairy 15 miles out of Tampa,  owned and operated by nephews  and a show-place of Florida.  Tourists will travel for miles to  view the white-painted, low  rambling buildings where Rosie  and her pals must wash their  feet upon entering to be fed and  milked, arid where the calves  are so well trained they resemble the precision march of the  Homey Griard. .< /The yJdairy sells  300 gallons of milk per day during the summer months, and 500  gallons during the winter  months. Milk retails at 25 cents  a quart as feed is shipped from  the north, making it an expensive item for the Florida babies.  Another point of interest re->  ceived by Mrs. Johnston was  the Bach Tower at Winterhaven,  commemorating Edward Bach^  late editor of the Ladies' Home  Journal.  The tower is 'situated on the  highest mound in Florida in a  picturesque setting of magnolias  fronting a lake, encircled bya  palm trees, each of which was*  planted by former presidents of  the United States.  The oat cakes Mrs. Johnston  baked for her brother became  quite famous, and for those interested readers, here it is:  Scotch oat cakes a la Johnston  ���2 cups quick oats (rubbed  fine between hands), 1 cup all-  purpose flour, Vz tsp. baking  powder, % cup fat. Add enough  water to enable you to handle  and roll out as pie crust. Bake  in medium oven (about 325)  until brown.  * * *.!

While sojourning at that "home" away from  home, I read many letters to the  editors of the Vancouver paper  regarding conditions in that institution and so a few notes on  the subject may be of interest  to those who have friends among  the 1,800 patients.

Born in Trondneim, Norway,  in 1889, he came to Canada, and  in 1907 married Hilda Urgens  in Vancouver, moving to Gibsons immediately.  He logged around Gibsons and  Roberts Creek until 1932, then  left that industry to turn to  berry growing. He developed  one of the largest strawberry  and raspberry ranches on the  peninsula. In recent years he  served as director on both the  Howe Sound Cannery and the  Elphinstone Co-operative Association of Gibsons Landing.  Surviving are his wife, four  daughters, Mrs. Alice Steele,  Matsqui; Mrs. Alma Ladd and  Mrs. Lillian Mihoiluk, both of  Alberni, and Mrs. Annie McDonald of Roberts Creek, and  two sons, Norman and Herbert,  both of Gibsons Landing.

MOSIER  OWING to unfavorable weather  conditions, the moving of the  Pearson's house to Sechelt on  Sunday caused quite a commotion in the Bay. Due to Mr.  Pearson's lack of foresight there  was no seating accommodation  provided for the crowds that  gathered, though neither rain  nor mud, both of which were  plentiful, caused enough discomfort to drive young or old  from the show, which evidently  was put on unrehearsed.  Those performing are to be  applauded for their stubborn  persistence and marvelous show  of patience, although at times  they worked in nearly two feet  of mud. However, we are happy  to report that the house was  finally settled on the Pearson's  lot, which is along the Porpoise  Bay road, without any mishap  other than, tired muscles and  aching backs.  * *    *  A fire starting around the  chimney complete destroyed the  hillside home of Mr. and Mrs. B.

Most Easter lilies are just the  ordinary outdoor variety of  lilies that are brought into the  greenhouse and forced for  Easter.  After the flowers are over,  place the pot in a cool basement  or garage until the following  November when the bulb should  be shaken out, the old stem removed, and the bulb planted  outdoors like any other lily.  They should be planted eight  inches deep with the base resting on one inch of sand.  Some gardeners plant their  lilies outdoors as soon as they  have died down. . The plant  makes new growth the same  year and may flower in the fall.  The other way gives the bulb a  rest and the flowers the next  year are bound to be better.  Delphinium plants seem to be  growing faster than anything  else in the garden. It has been  necessary to stake them. The  soil around them needs tb be  kept cultivated and a small  dressing of chemical plant food  should be hoed around the roots.  Delphiniums need a definitely  sweet soil and like a quantity of  wood ashes or lime. They send  their roots deep and need plenty  of moisture. Plants can be  grown from seed any time from  March till July according, to the  locality. The seeds should be  planted in the garden and transplanted when large enough the  following ' spring before the  crown spikes start to grow.  The delphinium sends up a  largei number of spikes; from  each root crown. It is best to  allow each crown to produce  from five to seven good spikes.  Do not let the flowers go to  seed, but cut the spikes back.  Delphiniums can be propagat  ed by dividing the roots in the  spring. The range of color in  delphiniums is not great, but  they give that finest of colors,  blue, in all shades, from palest  lavender to deepest indigo.  Some of'them have white centres, some have dark centres.  There are shades of pale pink  blending with blue. The lower  part of the plant is furnished  with broad, serrated leaves and  the upper portion with flowers.  Dr. iLeo Friesen  B.A., M.D., L.M.C.C.
