NEW  "I'M STARTIN' school after the  summer hol'days!" What  thrills for the little six-year  old, and what- a big event it is  in the life of each young adventurer! Although usually  unable to express himself, he  surely feels much as any of us.  do when approaching a new  stage in life's experience ��� a  queer mixture of pleasurable  anticipation and fearful trepidation. "It-will be great fun,  of course, but on the other  hand���will it?"  Every sympathetic parent  sense the feeling of his child,  and is most anxious to help.  So often the primary teacher is  asked by father or mother, "Is  there anything I can do before  my little girl���my little boy-  starts school, to make his (or  her) life there happy and successful? What can I do during  that first year to help?" And  sometimes, "At what age should  I first send my child to school?"  This is how one primary teacher would answer these questions:  SOME SUGGESTIONS  The age a child should start  is an individual problem.  Usually the accepted age of six  or six and a half is satisfactory.  There is often a question about  children whose birthdays are  from October to December, as  to whether it is better for them  to go before they are six or  wait another year. This . is  largely a question of health and  maturity. Some children have  boundless health, while the  physical condition of others  makes it advisable for them to  have another year of outdoor  freedom. Some children are  sufficiently mature mentally  and socially to profit by starting school work' a little under  age, while others are better to  wait a year, and possibly attend a kindergarten half.ydays; ���  ._, _jS;qK,mar^;^^t^y.rieedy toy^e^:  w*��m ~���:::3T  Letter to Editor  KLEINDALE ��� While   working  .in    Henry    Harris'     logging  woods   Wednesday,   July   9,   a  flying saucer or disc was seen  .by four men.

School Board  Objects to Beer  License Change  GIBSONS LANDING ���Protest  has been lodged by Gibsons  Landing School Board against  the proposed transfer of a beer  licence from Garden Bay to  Madeira Park. The board has  pointed out to Attorney-General Gordon S. Wismer and  liquor controller W. F. Kennedy  that the new premises would be  right across the street from the  school at Madeira Park.  The board announced the appointment of J. F. Ellis of Vancouver as principal of Sechelt  Superior . School.

Inch Dies  From Heart Attack  PENDER ' HARBOUR���Sydney  Inch, aged 59, died suddenly  at St. Mary's Hospital Sunday,  July 13, from, a heart attack. A  native of Toronto, Mr. Inch  served for 12 years as court reporter at Regina. Prorhinent as  a Rotary member at Swift Current in 1913, he was a newcomer to Pender Harbour.  He quickly became very popular in this community and  was active in local affairs; Just  three; days prior to his death, he  was-elected to the office of secretary "of the Sechelt Peninsula  Board of Trade.  He leaves his wife and daughter, Jean, in Vancouver; his son  Sydney and daughter Marjorie  at Noranda, Que.  ^We|g;;^v:einu;  ���t$��:payW;"  CHECK-UPS NEEDED  Parents can; help their preschool children in many Ways  before they start school. From  a'health pointyof view, a physical check-up as most valuable.  Many district^ have clinics for  pre-school (Children where  health suggestions "are made.  ^Ariy defects c&n be discovered  vand parents c��n see that these  are remedied!/ 'before school  opens. Where 'immediate treatment is not * practicable, the  teacher can be informed. She  can then give the necessary  consideration :-;to children who  have not normal sight, hearing,  kidney condition, etc.  Some small;? children have to  get up earlier*- when they go to  school. This means going  . earlier tb bed* and the new  sleep routine^ could well be  started aheadf of. time, so the  child can get^ accustomed to it.  Sometimes this may upset the  home arrangements. Favorite  radio programs may have to be  missed by the youngsters, and  . toned down '.when listened to  by the rest of (the family. Someone may have to stay home in  the evening 'jvho wants to go  out. But only a properly rested child is y'physically fit for  school.

NEW SURROUNDINGS  One   of   th'4 biggest  changes  facing the young adventurer as  he starts schc-61 life, is becoming a part o��\a different social  group.     ThisX means    a   great  deal to some children, and satisfactory   adjustment   may   take  weeks, even ifcnonths.    For one  thing,   mother   is   not - always  within call. /Wise parents can  prepare for tjxis, especially during the preceding year. A group  of parents cat. arrange to have  their  childrei| play  informally  at different h,6mes in turn .from  time  to time,; so  the  children  learn to playJwith others when  mother is not|r there.    A parent  of   an   only .child   particularly  will help that child by encouraging him to play with others of  his own age.' It is re-assuring  to children when they know at  least some of'their class-mate's;  ahead of timib.    Children who -  have  been  id kindergarten   or  Sunday School have had helpful training along these lines.  NO THREATS, PLEASE  It is important that the natural pleasurable anticipation  should be stronger than the  fearful trepidation. There have  been thoughtless parents who  used this thjreat when their  child was naughty, "Wait till  you get to school! The teacher,  will fix you!'' One little boy  was unable tip learn anything  during his; fitst term^ because  (Continued on Page 5)  To Gibsons  THE NEWS was advised today  by James Sinclair, M.P., in  Ottawa, that the application of  the Gibsons Landing Board of  Trade to have that community's  name changed to Gibsons has  been approved.  "The Board of Trade at Gibsons Landing wrote me some  three months ago asking that  steps be taken to change the  name of Gibsons Landing to  Gibsons, their point being that  Gibsons has long outgrown its  old status as a mere steamer  landing," says-Mr. Sinclair.

The raise was voted for by  the members of the Blubber  Bay Quarry Workers Union No.  "882, which is part of the International Union of Mine, Mills  and Smelter Workers, an affiliate of the Canadian Congress  of Labor.  NEW CONTRACT  One hundred and seventy  quarry workers are affected by  the new contract which was  effective June 1st. Negotiations,  which lasted for the duration of  a month, were "very satifac-  tory," according to Mr. Billingsley, who stressed the co-operation obtained between the  union and management among  the five members of the committee.  The increase was a part of  the national policy of the  union as elucidated in 10 points  which were brought up at its  national conference two years  ago; the majority of the objectives in this ten-point resolution have to date been obtained  according to the union representative. The current contract  was signed by Mr. Billingsley  representing the union and Mr.  Stewart, assistant manager of  the company, and Mr. Harver,  manager.  Storage Capacity  To Be Increased  GIBSONS LANDING���Increase  by more than 100 installations tb Gibsons' already heavi-  ^^Ty^^aeiaHva^^  made it necessary to "increase  the storage capacity of the  municipal reservoir.  Council, at a meeting .his  week, appointed the Marshall  brothers as caretakers of the  pump house. The caretakers will  be under supervision of Wally  Graham, new building inspector.  The resignation of Harry  Hoads, building inspector, was  accepted by council.

Mrs. Monteith, owner of a  large goat ranch between  Gower Point and Roberts Creek,  is known over North America  as a breeder of champion goats.  wers Aries  Timers  Editor. Coast News.  Dear Sir,  It was very interesting, reading Aries reference to oldtimers  in her correspondence. While  I am not a real oldtimer (just  the class of 29), the Mr. is one.  I don't think there is anything  to be ashamed of, not having a  trip up the Inlet before. The  years I can look back to, the  pioneers seemed to be too busy  building roofs over their heads,  or pulling out stumps with  their wheezy old stump puller,  to travel much.  However, I did have the  pleasure of a trip up the inlet  some years ago. I won't ever  forget it. It was a beautiful  evening in the late summer. I  went up with the Union staff  in the old Comox. The water  was like a pond, not a ripple on  it.  The    party   sat    around   the  stern   all   quietly   talking   and  relaxing.    There  were  a bride  and groom on their honeymoon  enjoying   the   romantic   atmosphere, and as far as they were  concerned   there   was   no   one  else  on   board.    They  had  the  bow  to  themselves.     We  were  all going to the same destination,   the  late Duncan  Irvine's.  We were nearly there, when  suddenly a mysterious whisper  went around the boat.    Everyone  seemed  to  be  moving  towards the newlyweds.    Thinks  I the boat must be sinking.    I  will   wait   calmly   for   the   all  hands   on   deck   order.     What  really happened was, they had  left    the    newlyweds    luggage  behind.  We arrived without further  incident. I had the honor of  sitting on the verandah beside  the bride, although I don't know-  yet who she was. She might  have been the mysterious traveller for all I knew. How  lovely it was, sitting there looking across the bay through the  lacy ��� trees���a perfect tropical  -evenings- -���>'-~---~���-.v:���-^-rr-/.  Then we had a walk in the  garden^. Giant zinnias in the  moonlight are something to remember.  ��� After that, supper. I think  yet' of the fruit cake. Mrs.  Irvine told me she aged them  by baking them six months  ahead.' " Yes the pioneers are  worth .mentioning. They had  to do everything for themselves.  In the meantime the Comox  had to go back to Sechelt after  the lost luggage. If I remember  right it went on to Vancouver  by mistake. Someone would  likely lose their head.  Margaret Allan, Sechelt  The miser likes to count his  gold.  He likes to see it shine;  But the thing we have to count  on,  Is always that last line.  Mexico's plastic industry had  its best year in 1946.  y (Photo by W.

In Canada, where we entertain so much in the home, a  special finesse is required of the  hostess. \  The fine points are worth  knowing, because nothing is so  crushing as the feeling that your  party has been- a failure..  The first thing to consider is-  whether your guests are well-  matched. Do they know each  other? Do they like each other?  Have they interests in common?  It is not necessary, of course,  for them to know each other in  advance ��� although you will  have a little work cut out for  yourself if they; don't! It is  essential, however, that they be  congenial or that you have a  reasonable expectation that  they will soon prove to be.  You wouldn't want it to be  like the cocktail party described  by Paul Gallico. One of the  men was definitely bored by his  fellow guests, so when offered  another cocktail, he said: "Yes,  I'd better have another. I can  still hear what they are saying."  The hostess should keep an  eye on her guests to see how  they are making out as the evening progresses.- Now, I don't  mean, .to bethat "busybody type  . who never lets anyone^ settle.  down to z;Si Zpleasant 1 ^oftversa-- ,  tion. ; She is a menace, that one.  Just as you are beginning to enjoy your new-found friend, your  hostess comes keening up to  drag you away because "you  really must meet.Prof. So-and-  So'who is just fascinating on the  subject of growing egg-plant."  And so on, all around the room,  until people who were perfectly  satisfied and comfortable where  they were, begin to feel they're  playing musical chairs.  Of course, if the hostess is  really on the beam and can tactfully lead her guests into promising conversational channels,  that is different.  A   thoughtful   hostess   never  concentrates on any one of her  guests, particularly the male,  members of the party. Take a  tip from the lovely English  hostess of an officers'" convalescent home who said: "Be nice  to the dull ones, and dull to the  nice ones."  If your party is to be one of  those enjoyable conversational  evenings in which good talk  ranges back and forth, it will be  wise to cast an eye to the group-'  ing of the furniture. Will your  guests be talking in one group  or in several! Is there room for  each group? Are the side tables  conveniently arranged for the  ash-trays, and for the refreshments when they arrive?  The intelligent hostess takes  cognizance in advance of the  special requirements of her  guests. She won't overlook Friday and its special needs in refreshments. She should also be  on the watch for types like  vegetarians, who, as George  Bernard Shaw said, "Won't eat  anything they can pat."  *    *    *  F.N.Y. writes:  "Dear Claire: Our club considers you our authority, so  would you please tell us the  right way to wear a corsage.

It  was a very little mouse, probably still in short pants and  going to a mice kindergarten. If  it had been a big, manly mouse  or a mouse with a mean face I  might not feel this way.  It was all quite funny at first  ���the way I killed the mouse, I  mean. My wife and I had just  come in from visiting some  friends. I was in the living  room starting a fire when she  cried out from the kitchen:  "Eeek!" Just like in the funny  papers.  I picked up a large piece of  wood. I knew she'd seen a  mouse. I had seen it the night  before. I hadn't mentioned this.  My wife is that way about mice  and I figured that what you  don't know won't run up your  leg.  WE WAITED  When I got out to the kitchen  my wife was standing on a chair.  As a matter of fact, so was I. I  am that way about mice, too.  "It went along the hall and  into the bathroom," she said.  "You made so much noise it  probably HAD to go to the bathroom," I said.  We stood there a few minutes,  wondering what to do next. So  I said, "Oh come on, let's go  after him. This is silly." So I  followed her along the hall. We  both picked up floor mats from  the hall ��� and carried these in  front of us, like shields. My  wife went onaheati and brought  me out a golf club, my favorite  No. 7 iron, although a No. 4  would have been the shot.  CLUB VICTORY  Then we peeped into the bathroom like a couple of people  expecting to face a charge by a  herd of rhinoceros. Sure enough,  there was the mouse in a corner,  running up and down in little  spurts, but without any place to  go.  My wife made a circling  movement around the bathtub  to send the mouse into our  trap and when he tried to make  it to the door I threw my mat  on top of him. My wife then  threw her mat on top of mine.  Neither of us had any idea  where the mouse was.  I lifted up one corner of the  mat to see if the mouse was  there. He was. He darted ^between 'my"iegs 'anfriieadecf back  into the open territory of the  kitchen. My wife and I (in that  order) scrambled after him and  surrounded him in ythe breakfast nook. I killed, him with a  pitch shot. .''''..  CUTE LITTLE FELLER  Well, we laughed about this,  as people do about their own  ludicrousness. I beat my chest  and gave " a Tarzan yell. My  wife said I was her hero. She  imagined me carrying her off  in the jungle, wearing a sarong.  But that night, when I'd gone  to bed, I thought of the little,  mouse again. It wasn't nearly  so funny. I remembered how  small and soft he was when I  picked him up with a piece of  newspaper. I remembered his  pink, delicate feet.  And I thought of how he felt  in that scramble, -how his tiny  heart must have pounded, how  desperate was his flight for  freedom, and of the sudden,  smashing death that ended for  him whatever the life of a little  mouse may be.  I knew I didn't want the little  mouse to be in my house. I knew  that he would have to go some  wm  I    UNION STEAMSHIPS LTD. ��  [SUMMER  SCHEDULES  ������������'���     Effective Until Further Notice I  I I  j   Gulf Coast - Howe Sound |  |              VANCOUVER���PENDER HARBOUR SERVICE I  |                                                (Roule 6) I  P                     KOBTHSOVN])                                     SOUTHBOUND ���  a                  Heave  Vancouver                         Xieave Pender Karbour g  B   .

To the Gulls  THE LATEST intelligence concerning strikes, murders, the  atom bomb, conditions inside  Poland and all that stuff will be  found elsewhere. You and I  are just going to sit here on the  verandah, sip our lemonade,  and talk about seagulls.  Ever since I've been home,  these three seagulls have been  living on the big rock outside  our place. Two of them spend  most of their time on the rock  nodding their heads at each  other and generally acting pretty  silly. The other, a darker seagull, keeps flying around in  circles, watching them. When  he gets on the rock, they chase  him away.  I have it on reliable authority  (Judy Scott, well-known West  Vancouver ornithologist) that  this has been going on all summer. AH sorts of bizarre explanations have been advanced  ���by the neighbors for this performance, including the theory  that the dark seagull is a kind  of Cesar Romero type bird who  is just hanging around until the  husband leaves town on a business trip, like following the  boats to Victoria.  Anyway, this explains why  I've just spent a day with two  of the city's leading students of  bird-life and with 12 pounds of  reference books and why I have  more notes here on seagulls than  I know what to do with.  There are several kinds of  gulls around these parts, including the Glaucous-Winged, the  Short-Billed and the Bonaparte,  the three most common, and the  Herring, Thayer and Ring-Billed seagulls, all of which look  pretty%much the same to everybody except other seagulls.  Ornithologists are darn near  unanimous in describing the  seagull as an incredible flier.  You probably know, for instance, that a gull can sail into  the teeth of a strong wind without flapping his wings, but I'll  bet you didn't know that many  a gull has been observed, in a  high breeze, to reach out with a  foot and nonchalantly scratch  its forehead.  Another thing about seagulls  that will amuse you is that they  deliberately take aim. The  writers of the volumes I have  before me are a pretty conservative bunch of fellows and not  likely to be waggish about this  subject. But they all note that  when they rob seagull nests the  parents come around and dive-  bomb with shocking accuracy.  There" are hazards in every profession.  Seagulls may just make a lot  of noise as far as you are con- '  cerned, but they are really talking sense. One authority has  gone as far as to compile a seagull vocabulary and here is some  of the simpler dialogue or Basic  Seagull:  "Oree-eh! Oree-eh!" Hello,  there.  "Klook!"���Nice day. (Or just  any comment.)  "Kawk!" ��� How've things  been?    (Or other enquiry.)  "Ko! Ko!"���Oh, shut up!  "Op Anh Oo! Anh!"���Will  you marry me?  Seagulls spend a lot of time  courting and the Herring Gull  in particular puts on a great  act, strutting around making  loud, sonorous love calls, chasing ~his competitors all over the  place and curtsying before the  gull of his choice.  Herring gulls also are famous  for infanticide and sometimes  murder not oniy their young,  but nearly full-grown offspring.  This type of gull has been seen  to walk backward and, altogether, does not seem to very  well adjusted.  Seagulls are smart, all right.  They know where protected  areas are, learn exactly where  ship's cooks dump their garbage  and many, of them go to California for the winter.  Occasionally crows out-smart  seagulls. Sometimes when seagulls are dropping mussels or  ' sea .urchins on rocks to break  their shells the crows will hang  around innocently looking at  their finger nails, then dash up  arid buzz off with the loot. Seagulls pretend riot to notice this.  Short-Billed gulls .. almost  never go on land, resting'mostly  on the water, and probably inspired Oliver Wendell Holmes  to write that lovely line, "The  gull, high floating like a sloop  unladen." Young Short-Billed  gulls often run away from home  and join up with the Glaucous-  Winged gulls, a pretty fast  crowd, and probably come to no  good end.  Gulls get along O.K. on salt  water and live to a ripe old age.  One famous bird who went by  the name of "Gull Dick" used  to spend every winter at Nar-  ragansett Bay on the Atlantic  coast, and was recorded for,24  years, probably proving that  seagulls have a good deal of  loyalty. Others have lived up  to. 30 years of age. Nobody  seems quite sure where they go  to die.  Now that we have all come  this far I might as well admit  that none of the books provide  any kind of an answer to my  original question. One of the  ornithologists told me that most  seagulls are happily married  after the courtship and could  not believe that we were wit-  THE COAST NEWS ��� Friday, July 18, 1947  3  �����\_" * <  ��� -f*"-1�� u" ' l  **U  E^*^ ��� .    ..  -* -jS^i*1  *T"gr  ��  ttlJ^a]___W��r1  KLEINDALE  By MRS.

BLOOJD banks in 14 centres  throughout the province will  be established shortly, states  Dr. W. G. Rice, Red Cross  medical director for the blood  transfusion service in British  Columbia.  At the present time, blood  banks are already operating in  hospitals in Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster, Chilli-  wack, Port Alberni, Nelson and  Penticton. Additional banks  will be placed at Prince Rupert,  Prince George, Kamloops, Kelowna,    Vernon,   Nanaimo   and  Trail. ^  _  In addition, plasma has been  shipped and stored at strategic  places.    Within the next three  months    every    B.C.    hospital  should  have   its  own  stock  of  plasma, states Dr. Rice.  This   comprehensive    service,  which supplies all types of blood  for transfusions free, to hospital  patients   in   this   province,   is  made possible by the fact that  more than 10,000 citizens have  given blood donations since the  Red Cross inaugurated this service  in  British  Columbia  five  months   ago.      Of   this    blood  more   than   7,000   transfusions  have already been given to hospital patients, value of which is  set at more than $100,000.  ���    "This   is   a   truly  great   gift  from the people of British Columbia to their fellow-citizens,"  states  P.  S.  McKergow, president of the B.C. division, Canadian   Red   Cross   Society.  "Through   the    Red    Cross,    I  would like to. thank this army  of donors on behalf' of the hundreds   of   people   whose   lives  they   have   saved.     More   and  more    donors    are   needed   to  carry on this humanitarian service which the Red Cross believes is of vital importance to  every person."  Already-23 centres have provided donors with Vancouver  supplying more than 4,000 and  Victoria 1,100. Single clinics  have been held in New Westminster, Langley, Cloverdale,  Ladner, Powell River, Chilli-  wack, Abbotsford, Agassiz, Mission, Haney, Coquitlam, Nanaimo, Port Alberni, Chemainus,  Penticton, Oliver and Kelowna.

Headlines  From   Canadian   Weeklies  UNDER the new Citizenship  Act it is not enough to leave  the formalities to the presiding  judge as new citizens get their  papers, claims the Peace River  Record-Gazette. Community  organizations, is the suggestion,  should welcome them, make  them feel they are honored and  valued citizens of this land.  * In mourning the death of  82-year Same Howe, veteran  cow-puncher, the Brooks, Alta.,  Bulletin says the days of rugged  individualists like him is about  gone. That kind is unpopular  these days, declares the Bulletin, adding, "The herd insists  upon conformity. We insist on  the government doing this and  that for us. When government  moves in it brings along bureaucracy and endless restrictive regulations."  * The Arnprior (Ont.) Chronicle deplores the constant flow  of Canadians to the United  States, and thinks people should  not be so shocked at the suggestion that this drift could conceivably, some day, mean Canada will form part of the U.S.A.  "It takes more than high-sounding ^phrases and diplomatic pronouncements of friendship to  make a nation ... as parliament  drones on endlessly and does  nothing about it."  ���* Referring to the howl at  the rise in price of butter, protest parades on candy bars,  subsidizing of bread and housing, the Printed Word causti- .  cally suggests:  Why not subsidize everything  equally? Then, taxation would  go up, a hugely increased staff  would be maintained at Ottawa *  to do the accounting, and the  country would end just where  it would have been without any  subsidy at all. Surely a nation  of intelligent Canadian people  is not going to be fooled again  into imagining that the cost of  living can be kept down by paying subsidies out of taxes.  * Let no man say country  editors aren't an emotional lot  inside and evidence is this editorial gem from the Cardston  (Alta.)  News:  "In June the hills are green,  the countryside a picture of  beauty. The mornings are  bright, the evenings cool and  comfortable. The crops springing up in the ground give a new  hope to a hungry world. There  is evidence that God is in His  Heaven and going about His  wondrous ways. In Nature,  gives the upshooting grains sustenance and life In this  knowledge, there is courage  for the human heart."  * Canada's independent radio  stations are not free from faults,  any more than their American  brethren; but at least they are  self-supporting, claims the  Huntville, Ont., Forester. If  they were freed from some of  the restrictions the CBC imposes on them���such as denial  of the right to form their own  networks���they could probably  do a job of Canadianizing radio  that would make the CBC's  efforts look picayune.  ���* A little Canadiana: In Quebec in July and August three  centenaries will be celebrated  at City of Jonquiere, erection of  Tadoussac chapel and discovery  of Lake St. John ...

The salt is extracted from  layers some 1,500 feet below  the earth's surface and processed for a great variety of purposes. Besides being used extensively on the farm for curing meats, as table salt and  blocks and licks for animals,  this commodity is employed in  the manufacture of glass, soap,  paper, chlorine, caustic soda,  hydrochloric acid, ammonia,  dyestuff, ceramic glazes, leather  and a multitude of other goods.  SALT WORSHIP  The impact of salt on civilization is such that London, England, is said to owe its beginning centuries ago to salt pack  trains, journeying from mid-  England to southern England  and northern France. The early  Greeks worshipped salt. Among  the Hebrews, new-born babies  were rubbed with it to ensure  continued health. In the Far  East children can still be seen  with small bags of salt worn  about their necks to ward off  the evil eye and protect them  from danger. In Abyssinia,  coins called "amoulies" were  small salt tablets. In some  South Sea islands the standard  price of two pigs is half a sack  of salt and in the interior of  Africa salt is still a medium of  exchange.  Tooth Tartar  TARTAR on the teeth is actually lime and other mineral  substances from saliva, hardened around decomposing food  particles, dead bacteria and  dead skin cells from the lining  of the mouth. It has a porous  structure and an unpleasant  odor. It builds up a rough edge  against the gums, injuring them  by pressure and providing a  xefuge for germs which can  spread further injury.  Dental authorities urge a  twice-yearly oral examination  to permit the dentist to remove  this menace before serious injury is caused.  by wagon in  1886,  taking two  weeks;  recently she made the.  trip by plane, taking just two  hours.

THE COAST NEWS ��� Friday. July 18, 1947  Fazio and Dick Metz���came in  with 278's for a first-place tie  that later was settled when Fazio  nosed out Metz by a single  stroke in an 18-hole play-off.  Leonard is an entry again this  year, and he will be getting a  lot of gallery attention as a  hopeful for the honor of being  the first man to keep the Seagram Gold Cup in Canada.  Then there is a case of Bob  Gray, home pro of Toronto  Scarboro. In 1941, Gray shot a  276 over the Toronto Lambton  course, two strokes off the 274  put together by Sam Snead of  Hot Springs, Va. So Gray had  to be content with second place,  although his 276 would have  won the Open in six out of the  nine years in which the Seagram  Gold Cup has been up for competition.  And so it goes through the  record book. A number of Canadians have won the Dominion's  Open championship since its inauguration in 1904, but none  since the Seagram Gold Cup  became the official symbol of  victory in 1936. In fact, no  Canadian has won it for two  decades prior to that���since the  days before the Canadian Open  reached sufficient stature in the  golfing world to attract top-  notch Americans.  Montreal's Stan Home is typi-  HIGHEST award in Canadian  golf, the Seagram Gold Cup  has yet to be won by a Canadian, but there is a growing  feeling in golfing circles that  the symbol of Canadian golfing  supremacy is just about due to  remain in Canada instead of  taking its annual journey south  of the border.  Whether or not the 1947 Canadian Open, over Toronto's Scarboro layout July 16-19, will  write a Canadian-born champion into the record remains to  be seen���but certainly Canadian  pros have been coming closer  each year in the face of keen  competition from the top-ranking golfers of the United States.  Stan Leonard almost did it  last year. The Vancouver idol  put together a 279 for 72 holes  over the trying Beaconsfield  course outside Montreal to wind  up in a three-way tie that included Lloyd Mangrum, the U.S.  open champion.

THEATRE CLOSES  The Island Theatre, which  planned to visit Gibsons each  Monday night for the summer  season, has discontinued its  program here. This decision  was reached after failures to  meet expenses at the first two  performances. At the present  time an occurrence of this  nature reminds us that while  the village is large enough to  need certain services which it  has not, it is not so populated  as to be able to afford certain  luxuries that may be,offered it.  It is another oft-repeated case  where one need goes unanswered and causes inconvenience  while another is responded to  prematurely and fails.  *    *    *  A unique assemblage of craft  called at this port recently.  They were a string of three  former landing barges, one  powered and towing the other  two. With one barge already  making its permanent home  here, the bay looked for a few  hours like a jumping-off base  for an invasion of points west.  WHARF GROWS  The new wharf put its best  foot forward the other day and  in one final step reached shore.  While it is not yet completed, it  is possible now to see what it  will look like when it is finished, which should be soon.  Plans are going ahead here for  a celebration and ceremony to  mark official opening of* the  large new structure. Meetings  have been held and committees  appointed to take care of the  various aspects of the event. If  all plans materialize, the occasion   should   be   a   memorable  one.  ��    *    *  An addition to the Bank of  Montreal quarters here has  nearly doubled the space of that  building. Included iri the extension is an office in which  business can be conducted in  private.  PUMP LEAVING  The old Shell Oil gas pump  is taking a trip to Burns Lake.  The pump, operated first by C.  P. Smith; and later by Wally  Graham, Joe Ward, Otto Ban-  gerter, and Joe Schutz, present  Shell Oil agent, enjoyed a life  of considerable color, including  being bowled for a duck by a  motorist whose brakes failed to  keep faith with his confidence  in them. Perhaps the old pump  feels that that episode represents the climax of its sojourn  here. Anyway, it has been replaced by an electric model,  and is off to seek new spice  farther north.

THE modern taste for refined  foods is deplored by those  who make a specialty of nutrition. They say that the nutritive worth of such items as  farina, corn meaL macaroni,  white rice, corn flakes and  puffed cereals is much reduced  by the intensive milling and  heat-treatment to which these  foods are subjected in the processing, even if there is little  change in their caloric value.  Cut Out Sweets  AVOID excessive use of sweets,  and concentrate on the toothbrush if you would save your  teeth, advise the health authorities.  Science knows that the most  effective means of combating  tooth decay is to fill the cavities  when they are only pin-point  size. A cavity is never too  small to fill. There wouldn't  be as many cavities as are  found in the teeth of modern  folk, if people cut down on  their consumption of sweets,  and had a greater fondness for  brushing the teeth.

The" children who learn'  to read fastest and best are  usually those who have learned  to like good books ajt home, to  take an interest in their surroundings, and to carry on an  intelligent conversation. It is  easy now to get good and inexpensive children's books,  and children gain much by being read to, and having stories  told to thern, even without  books. Their literary taste can  be steered in the right direction  by really interesting and attractive picture books, rather  than second-rate comics. Memorizing nursery rhymes helps  too, and singing little songs.  Young children can also be  trained to respect books and  care for them properly, keeping  them in good condition. Though  this is hardly to be expected  from very small children, four  and five-year-olds should be  able to learn it.  PRE-SCHOOL STUDIES  There is a wide variation in  the understanding of numbers  in a normal beginners' class in  September. Sdfrie cannot even  count to five, while others can  ..count, to one hundred. Some,  know nothing of figures,-- others  have studied the calendar and  know them all. A normally  bright child can start grade two  knowing nothing but the figures and what counting he has  picked up incidentally, and still  complete the grade two number  program, successfully at the end  of the year. There is nothing  a beginner needs to be taught  formally about numbers before  starting school, but the superior  students are usually either  "number conscious" because of  their natural interest, or  through the deliberate informal conversations of their parents. "What a lot of boats there  are at the float this afternoon!  Let's see how many. One, two,  three . . . seven! Oh! One's  going away! Only six!" Or,  "You shall help me set the  table, four plates, four spoons���  Grandma and Grandpa coming?  We'll need two more ��� six  plates, six spoons." And so on.  Going shopping is a big help  too.  INSTRUCTIVE TOYS  Coloring books are a delight  to the five-year-old, and a good  help in developing the kind of  muscular control used in printing, and later in writing. Toy  blackboards and chalk are also  good to play with.  Though formal teaching is  not necessary and mostly not  desirable, it is always wise to  answer children's questions*  When reading a story book together, if Junior asks, "Does  that say Peter Rabbit?" certainly tell him. Soon he will  be finding all the places in the  book where Peter Rabbit comes,  thus indicating, whatever his  age, that he-is probably ready  to learn to read.  Children with a background  of worthwhile interests shared  at .home usually do well in  school���those with pets���those  who have learned to enjoy the  countryside, birds, flowers,  trees7~ animal life���those who  have lived with boats or engines���those who have learned  to build and make things���those  who have learned to sing and  listen, to look at pictures and  talk about them.  THAT FIRST YEAR  And" during that first year at  school? Just one point could  be mentioned that is an - encouragement to most children.  When a youngster brings home  work to show, even a crude  drawing/show interest and appreciation. There is no need to  praise poor work- unless it is  obviously a child's best. When  he knows his efforts are appreciated, he will improve all the  time. If his work is laughed at  or ignored he will not have the  same respect either for his own  work or the work of others.  His enthusiasm will decrease,  and his sense of championship  be weakened.

The residents formed a local of United  Farmers of which Mr. Billingsley was first president and they  built the old log hall which still  stands. They disbanded in 1938.  He calls to mirtd the time when  Mrs. Billingsley and your correspondent disgraced th&m-  selves and this was the way it  was: We wished to go to one of  the socials, which were grand  affairs at that time but neither  of our husbands would go so  away we went taking with us  Mr. Billingsley's perfectly good  lantern. We were cautioned to  guard it carefully as it was just  bought that day. However we  came home last as we enjoyed  the fun; and oh, boy the lantern; it also was the last one,  bound up with haywire and  string. Talk about new lamps  for old! All the way home it  went flip, flop, and we had to  throw our hats in.  It did good though���we never  went unescorted after that. The  Billingsley's have three sons at  Kingsley school in North Vancouver. Charles is with the Royal Bank in Toronto, Harry and  Bill are employed locally by  Union Steamships.  teachers need to remember, that  to be successful in child training, team work is necessary.  Parents and teachers often see  different sides of a child's personality, and ,.it is only by  friendly and ^confidential cooperation that ^sufficient understanding of tile nature of an  individual child can be obtained, and he can be given the  guidance that is best for him.  THE COAST NEWS ��� Friday, July 18. 1947  HIGH ranking officials* of the  Canadian National Railways  are coming to Victoria on Sept.  18 to confer with Premier John  Hart in connection with the Pacific Great Eastern Railway and  its proposed extension into the  Peace River district. Announcement to this effect was made by  Premier  John  Hart  last  week.  The Canadian National Railways officials will comprise S.  W. Fairweather, vice-president  of the Canadian National Railways, in charge of research and  development; M. W. Maxwell,  chief of development for the  Canadian National Railways;  K. M. Ralston, mining engineer,  and F. V. Seibert, industrial  commissioner stationed at Winnipeg.  The party of C.N.R. officials,  . before coming to Victoria, plan  to visit the Pine Pass route including a visit to Summit Lake  and a trip over the Pacific  Great Eastern Railway.  RESOURCES SURVEY  It will be recalled that following the conferences in Ottawa  last May, the Canadian National  Railway decided to send a representative into the Hassler  Creek area to review the resources survey work already  done under the direction of Dr.  T. B. Williams and to remain  there for some time to watch  the progress of this survey.  The premier is hopeful that  by the end of the summer season, sufficient data will have  been secured from the survey  work now being undertaken to  enable him to further his negotiations on the basis outlined  when in the east, namely that  of forming a partnership between the province, the C.N.R.,  and C.P.R., and the Dominion  government in the extension of  the Pacific Great Eastern Railway at an estimated cost of approximately $50,000,000.  Survey Started  On Immigration  Expansion  A SURVEY to determine what  further expansion, if any, is  required in the existing overseas immigration policy will be  made by two senior officers of  the immigration branch, department of mines and resources,  and the department of national  health and welfare.  Already on their way to.Great  Britain and Europe are A. L.  Jplliffe, director of immigration, department of mines and  resources, and Dr. C. P. Brown,  assistant director of health services, department of national  health and welfare. Their work  overseas is expected to take  about two months.  Immigration civil and medical examiners are located at  various centres in the British  Isles and on the continent of  Europe and Mr. Jplliffe will examine these establishments in  order to determine what further expansion is necessary. He  will also consult with the  authorities concerned with the  organization at present set up to  locate, assemble, and examine  displaced persons in Germany  with a view to expediting the  movement to Canada of those  who are admissible under the  regulations.  Full-time immigration medical officers of the department  of national health and welfare  are located in London, Paris,  Brussels and The Hague. Local,  part-time medical officers are  employed in more than 500 centres throughout the British  Isles.  Two medical officers are  working with a special commission of immigration officials in  the screening of prospective immigrants from the displaced  persons in northwestern Europe.  Dr. Brown, who has been in  charge of immigration medical  work since 1933, will survey the  present overseas organization  and advise the department on  what additional staff and facilities may be required to handle  the medical examination of  prospective immigrants.

So  announced Van Anda's Coast  Miner in its January 15, 1900,  issue. .  When Harry Whitney Treat  planned the townsite of Van  Anda in conjunction with his  mining operations on Texada  Island, he forgot none of the  essentials of a community ���  church, school; hospital, community centre; These accompanied the neat little homes he  built and let on.the instalment  plan to the employees.  Mr. Treat's vision and understanding brought men with families to the mining settlement.  In fact, when 'the new school  was opened January .8, 1900,  there was an enrolment of fifty  pupils. The comment-'of the  local paper reads: "Where all  the children come from is a  mystery." ;  Decision on d site for the new  church was not hard to make.  Above . Sawmill Cove, on a  knoll overlooking the clean new  homes as well as the waters of  the straits, the men.erected their  house of worship.  It was a chapel on which they  could look with pride. Stained  glass windows softened the light  that fell on the minister in his  pulpit. A bell called the community to worship Sunday  morning and evening. .The tall  spire was surmounted by a shiny  new weather vane. So.the little  white kirk stood out from the  nearby evergreens, with beauty  and dignity.      ��� .  While Reverend Madill, a  Presbyterian, was minister at  Van Anda at the time the  church was built, he had been  preceded in his pastoral duties  by an Anglican parson, Rev.  Stoney. "The -latter," says a  member of the. community at  that time, "was;a big, fat, easygoing man, who had the most  mirthless laugh d ever heard."  Services had !been held temporarily in- an; old mess hall  close to the sawmill and later  in the school house. Two church  services as well; as Bible classes  and Sunday School, were held  each Sunday. A mid-week  prayer meeting was held for the  community = Wednesday evenings.  When Rev. Madill left Van,  Anda after several years of  vigorous service, the Presbyterian Church Mission Board undertook to supply the settlement  with student ministers. Charles  Kidd, who was stationed at Van  Anda in 1904, also assisted his  brother, Rev. W. J. Kidd, who  was pioneering in Presbyterian  Loggers' Mission along the coast  waters. Rev. W. Schlichter; a  Methodist, gave services for a  few months. A one-time student at the kirk on the hill was  S. Bloomberger, who sinee became a well-known medical  practitioner in Vancouver.  In 1922 Rev. G. C." Pringle,  now retired in Vancouver, took  charge of the Presbyterian Coast  Mission work, with headquarters at Van Anda. Hundreds of  people who lived;in or are still'  living*in remote spots along the  coast, still pay tribute to the  forceful Christian ministry he  rendered so freely.  Tragedy, in the form of a.  spectacular fire in September,  1942, completely destroyed the  little church. To the older residents, even though recent service was spasmodic, the passing  of their kirk took something  that was a part of their very beings. ..  SECRET COVE  By INEZ WILLISON  COMMANDER D. K.
