Tribute Paid Roberts Creek  Resident on 78th Birthday  By  CAROLA  A HAPPY 78th birthday to Mrs.  I. D. Wilson of Roberts Creek,  whose   spirit   will   never   grow  y$fe ;3?��caus��- ^^s^i^Wo^xm^  she is forced to sit up at all  times^-her bed is beside the  window which faces the broad  expanse of the Gulf and the  . Islands of which she never tires,  and with her singing canary beside her, dainty Mrs. Wilson  presents such a pleasant aspect  to callers that one feels a lift of  :yy-~ *������>*������ - "���2T'.,,*V:~-*��'".tV**Tt��  BED-RIDDEN  For 18 years Mrs. Wilson had  been confined to her bed due to  an accident, and when she was  told she would never walk again  she wanted to die, but learned  patience, and how to make  something of her life. Her  paintings, her poetry and her  stories would have been lost to  us had she given up at this, the  crucial period of her life.  Recently she has been making the most exquisite shell  jewelry which she says has helped her wonderfully, as it's  soothing to the i_ferves, requiring  concentration. She recommends  this hobby to anyone with good  eyesight and a steady hand, as a  great healer. She is a collector  of ornamental elephants.  WORLD  TRAVELLED  Her father, a partner in a  shipowner firm, often took her  mother and herself on long voyages. In this way she had travelled around the world before  the age of nine. One of her  earliest recollections was watching people skate on the ice in  the harbour of Odessa, Russia,  when some of the ships would  be icebound.  Mrs. Wilson had a lovely contralto voice as a girl and great  things were predicted for her,  but as she says "My heart has  always ruled my head." However, at the age of sixteen Madame Marie Rose of the Carl  Rosa Opera Company, hearing  her sing, persuaded her parents  to "allow her to travel with her  and the company, giving her  finishing lessons and set her on  her way.  She then joined the 'Perkins  Opera Company and travelled  to South Africa where she sang  in two operas a week, one, a  grand opera and the other a  Gilbert and Sulivan opera, with  a drama or comedy every Saturday night.  It   was   hard  work   but   she  loved it. It was at the height  of her career when she met and  married Mr. Wilson and lived on  v an estrich farm, and after some  years went back to England and  eventually came out to Canada.  TORPEDOED  Her husband joined the Princess Pats in World War I, was  wounded in Belgium and invalided back to England. Mrs.  Wilson left New York on the  "Lusitania^V jtQ. .join him and it,,  was then she met with disaster.  The vessel was torpedoed 30  miles off the coast of Ireland, in  sight of the Old Head of Kuis-  dale and over a thousand people  lost their lives. Mrs. Wilson was  picked up by' a trawler, then  transferred to . a tug which  reached Queenstown at 11 at  night. The ship was torpedoed  at 1:15 p.m. and eight minutes  later was completely obliviated  b5^ the blackened waters. Mrs.  Wilson was badly injured and  for two years was in and out of  hospitals.  In 1929 Wilsons returned to  Canada,' this time to British  Columbia, and lived in Lillooet,  in the Cariboo, where her husband was postmaster, and where  he died.  -.. The following was written by  Mrs. Wilson on the occasion of  a former birthday:  ERE I PASS ON  E're I pass on, I'd like to clasp  the hands of all the friends  who've been so good to me,  To thank them, and to let them  know  How much they've helped me.  And  in  doing so, one's duty  would be done-���  My spirit free to thank my  Maker  For all that He has left.  He might have claimed my  sense, my sight, my feeling.  What matters it, if now I am  bereft of things once valued.  God has shown to me, that hurts  to body, or to soul  Are His for healing. <���  S^6T HdV  j\ x_* *_ -.j <  ^    -.7    VT"A7 *Vr  v.-     y.      *> i ��� .

Before leaving Arizona  they had some grand fun at the  "Policemen's Ball" night club,  and also the Saddle and Spur  night club. They also saw the  Wonderland of Rocks, which are  towering balancing rocks, many  shapes and sizes. Two are vivid  and clear resemblances of  Punch and Judy.  So they left Arizona and entered the state of California at  El Centro���55 feet below sea  level���across the Mojave desert  as fast as they could go for the  heat was terrific. Nearing the  Lower Sierra Mountains at  San Diego, a welcoming cool  Pacific breeze met them so they  stopped and drew in long cool  breaths.  The gals saw the sights of San  Diego, and Gertie Lewis was  greatly impressed with Cardiff -  by-the-Sea as it brought back  memories to her of the other  Cardiff, thousands of miles away  in Wales. The gals spent a time  at the old San Juan Capistrano  Mission, built in 1776, and actually saw the swallows that  come to Capistrano every year  on March 19 and remain until  October 23. Off again they drove  through miles of orange, lemon  and grapefruit groves, along  avenues lined, by Jackoranda  trees which are masses of purple blossoms, and geraniums six  feet tall.  The next stopping place was  Forest Lawn where they saw  'The Last Supper," a beautiful  stained glass window picture,  twice life size, done by Rosa  Moretti in Italy, and qther masterpieces of fine art. It was all  very impressive and will remain  in their memories and no doubt  be told to their grandchildren.  On they went to Los Angeles  where- they took in many broadcasts such as "The Great Gilder-  sleeve," Eddie Cantor, Gracie  Allen and George Burns, and  . many others. They saw Van  Johnson and thought why  couldn't Bob, Bill, Benny and  Alex change a little. All kiddin'  aside I bet that they wouldn't  trade Bob, Bill, Benny and Alex  ��� for all the Van Johnsons.  Of course the gals had to have  a snack at the* Brown Derby in  Beverly Hills, so they had a  hamburger that cost the same  as a T-bone would at the Vancouver Hotel.

CO., LIMITED  1038 Homer Street, Vancouver, B.C.  44CV  by Jack Scott  THE NEWSPAPERS and their  by-products, such as this pillar  of type, chronicle the day-today story of a'city, and its people, recording fact and anecdote  and movement. We y listen to  the voices and write/ down the  Words. We watch the scene and  describe it. We scent the transient stuff called news and package it for delivery to the doorstep. ' *  We miss out on only one thing.  No newspaper seems able "to  tell the story of the soul-deep  aspirations and dreams of the  ordinary people. The immense  �� news of*what goes on in the  minds of the individual remains  clearly the property of novelist  and poet.  As individuals we know that  each of our friends and neighbors has a far bigger story than  the butter and egg prices or the  luncheon speech at the Kiwanis  Club. Yet there is no place iri  the news-^columns for it.  For many newspaper people  this remains a life-long enigma.  There is.a sense of frustration ,  for the lowliest obituary writer  who types his daily list of the  departed in the cryptic, stylized  language of that department,  knowing that each -paragraph  holds the raw material for a  book. No good reporter writes  the bald facts of any story without a deep, unspoken urge to  probe deeper into the thoughts  of the people involved.  On the fiftieth wedding anniversary of an old couple who  live in an ancient house in the  shadow of heavy industries  along False Creek, I was with  a photographer who went to��  take a picture, a routine assignment.  There was a saintliness and  peace about these old folk, apparently Unhampered by the  fact that the husband was. blind. *  I waited while the photographer  took his picture ahd got the  facts. The story would be told  in. the 60-odd words beneath a f  two-column cut.  My father was a newspaperman for about 40 years and a.  good one, but he never wrote  the story that interested him  most. He had a life-long curiosity about the>places that people live in. A lonely farmhouse,  seen from a passing train, an  old mansion in the West End or  a' shack in a culvert would be  enough to whet the blade of  his curiosity. ���  Where did the people come  from? What did they do with  their lives? What was the pur-  , pose behind their day-to-day  living? He. would gaze at an  unusual home with the same  interest and look of inquiry  that less-imaginative men reserve for the bright jacket of a  new novel.  When you write for a living  it's impossible to avoid/that  kind of question. Riding in to  work in the mornings with the  notes of a column on, say, a  tattoo artist (which will doubtless fill this space-on a more  extroverted day); I get a frustrated feeling of being a irtillion  miles from the actual pulse of  the city.  Watching the* swarms of people coming down to the city's  main arteries, seeing them pour  GIBSONS LANDING ��� The  lighthouse tender "Barrons"  made a visit to this port during the past week, and when it  left there was a light installed  on the reef.  Installation of the light has  resulted from negotiations carried on by C. P. Smith, harbour  master. The signal is green, in  order to distinguish it from the  red wharf beacon and the white  shore lights. Mounted on the  marker that has become known  locally as the "buoy," it flashes  approximately one second with  an interval of ten seconds.  Camp Loader Catches  Leg Between Logs  HALFMOON BAY���Bill Wilson,  second, loader for the McKenzie and Flavelle camp, met with  an accident here May 28.  Wilson was setting the tongs  on a log when a log in back of  him rolled, pinning his leg between the two, badly bruising  tjjie calf and ankle. The injured  man was taken to St. Mary's  Hospital where he is still a  patient.  out the honeycombs of the  apartment blocks, the cliff-  dwellers of the day, the idea is .  inescapable that each one of  these people, like.yourself, is a  complicated, highly individualistic personality whose stories  will never be told.  No story of a tattoo artist will  have the emotional impact or  the humanity that might be  found behind the blank, newly- ���  shaven and newly-powdered  faces of the mass of early morning street/car riders. But the  story is doomed to be locked  there forever.  None of these average people .  will ever: be" in 'tlie "ne#spaperr~-  ��� unless they fall from a high  building or grow a 15-foot  hollyhock, are run over on  Granville Street or live to be  99 years old.  Yet they, and not the recorded voices and the pictured  scene, are the heart-beat of the  city. The storjr of any one of  these people, told in its naked  truth, would give historians of  a hundred years from now a  picture of the mood and tempo  and philosophy of today that /  will be found in no newspaper.  So, tomorrow, I will step up  to someone in the street, some  plain fellow with that faintly.;  worried, restless look in his  eyes, perhaps needing a haircut or on his way to the dentist  or going out for his 30-��ceht  lunch, and say, "I want the news  story of your aspirations and,  dreams and the daily life you  lead and what you are "doing  and what you want out of it."

Sometimes he  made his traditional descent via  chimney and fireplace. Or he  would appear on a great northern animal (created for the  occasion). Again he demanded  entrance���and got it���through  a window. But no matter how  he arrived he was hilariously  welcomed as the j oiliest, finest  Santa that ever visited the little  village.  A  COMMUNITY  LEADER  In fact, Alfred Hanson made  such a niche for himself in the  booming community that no one  could think of Christmas trees  or of dances or of parties, without thinking of him too. It just  seemed that he stood for the  community spirit. His passing  several years ago left a tremendous gap, still felt keenly  by old-timers.  Alfred was a child in Germany, but when he was about  fifteen he left his home for the  ships and the new world. His  pleasing personality won him  friends everywhere. A Captain  Magnuson at San Francisco took  the lad onto his ship, and taught  him much about the west coast  ships.  SEALING ADVENTURES,  The   adventurous    sealing  schooners beckoned. Soon the  young Alfred, new member of  a sealing crew, was drawing out  of Victoria harbour and sailing  towards Japan. In later years  he recounted fascinating tales  of the Hawaiian Islands, of  Japanese waters, of wild Bering  Sea storms, and of thrilling  escapes among fog and rocks  from the American revenue cutters. And always they were  hunting, then finding the colony  of fur seals, shooting the "lookout" seal and then there was the  slaughter and the long trip back.  Victoria was reached again in  the fall and furs filled the holds  of the schooner.  HOTEL DAYS  It was 1899 when Alfred Hanson came to the staff of the Van  Anda Hotel. Those were days  of great mining activity and in  the boom town, community  spirit flourished. It didn't take  long to discover that Mr. Hanson was an accomplished accordionist, a comic entertainer  and a very fine dance performer.  Quadrilles, polkas, two-steps  and a long list of the old-time  dances, held no mystery for Mr.  Hanson, either in music or on  the floor. For years he was the  orchestra and the floor show  between the dances. He gave  variety too with his singing,  dancing, and instrumental numbers, or perhaps a pantomime.  MADE HIS MARK ,  An ultra-smart dresser, Mr.  Hanson would appear on fine  summer Sundays in a cream  flannel suit, complete with cane  and top hat.  No wonder an emptiness has  lingered these years since Mr.  Hanson passed away more than  ten years ago in the Powell  River Hospital. But the Island's  pioneers love to recall the incidents and the personalities that  gave the young" mining village  a gay social life and pleasant  memories.  The sweet potato is an edible  member of the morning glory  family.  An armadillo kills snakes by  rolling on them.  Air Cadets to Get  Grants for College  NINE scholarships, valued at  $890 each, will be granted air  cadets for training at the joint  navy-R.CA.F. school at Royal  Roads, B.C., by the R.C.A.F.  benevolent fund, it was decided  at a meeting of the fund in Ottawa last week. One cadet from  each province will receive the  scholarships.  As well as these scholarships,  there are nine of $1,000 each  given by the Air Cadet League  of Canada. Each squadron can  send in the name of its most  prominent cadet and of these,  one cadet from each province  will be selected to attend Royal  Roads at the league's expense  for two years.  The Dominion scholarship (or  cadetship) is confined to dependents of servicemen or ex-  servicemen. The R.C.A.F.  cadetships are confined to dependents of members or ex-  members of the R.C.A.F.  Habits and Health  UNTIL healthful habits and  routines are universally accepted and practised, health  authorities admit that it won't  always be easy for those who  understand the finer points of  living to adhere to sound programs.  Many of man's -worst habits  are rooted in superstition, ignorance and custom. As a case in  point, the medical people indicate the difficulty of bringing  up children according to approved principles of hygiene  when the great majority of  youngsters are allowed to find  their own feet in a haphazard  society.  The authorities are agreed  that education is necessary to  develop public understanding of,  and compliance with, habits that  favor health.

Wood will be  trucked to the water on West  Howe Sound and transported to  Port Mellon by scow.  * *    *  Sea Bus Lines Ltd. of Gibsons Landing, have added another vessel to their fleet. The  "Sun Dance", powered with a  Chrysler "Ace", is equipped to  carry 11 passengers. It should  prove a very handy craft to have  around to fill in and carry overloads, especially during the  coming summer.  * *    *  The Parish of Stv Bartholomew, Gibsons aLnding, has now  opened its drive in support of  the Anglican Advance Appeal.  The appeal goes out to all Anglicans, attached or unattached.  Of its total sum of $4,300,000,  our own diocese of New Westminster has accepted an obligation of $119,500,000. Our Parish  of St. Bartholomew, Gibsons  Landing, has been asked for $700  towards the latter amount.  It is hoped that all Anglicans  will support this appeal, and  should any persons be overlooked by the canvassers the^ /ire  asked to send their subscription  to the parish treasurer, Mr. T.  ' G. Clarke of St. Bartholomew  Church. Literature regarding *  this appeal and how its money  is to be spent can be had upon  application to St. Bartholomew  Church, Gibsons Landing.  *    *    *  THE WOOD CUTTER OF  GIBSONS LANDING  He arrived one morning about  sun-up on a late fall day. With  his saw he had walked a mile  or so to get there, and after a  few comments about general  affairs, he started work. We  didn't see him go, but just about  dusk, we looked at the hugh  rings of fir fire wood and found  the whole tree cut up into 54  blocks.  Not long after he started logging with a team of horses. His  record was phenomenal.  He had always lived on the  one place, and in later years he  took on a less strenuous but  more tedious job, berry farming. At this he was the leading man. I don't know what the  local jam factory would have  done without him.  In fact, as a neighbor and a  good citizen, his name will be  long remembered. It was Pete  Berdahl.  P.T.A.
