Friday, July 25, 1947  5c Per Copy, $2.50 Per Year, "by Mail  AW  *'' ���>  Gas Research  CITY gas. from wood scrap may  supply Vancouver in the  future if current investigations  by British Columbia Research  Council show it to be feasible.  The B.C. Electric Railway Co.  has provided $2,500 for the  initial phase of the research  program and an equal sum has  been contributed by the coun-  . cil. ���'���"'"  Successful utilization of sawmill scrap as a, source of gas  would, not only supplement increasingly scarce supplies of  coal suitable for gas production,  but would also provide aprof it-  able use for the over 3,000  cubifc yards Of mill ^^p which  cannot be used for lumber or  for domestic fuel and which is  now incinerated or dumped  daily in the Vancouver area.  The utilization of scrap wood  and bark has long been a major  problem of the lumber industry.  Gas can be produced from  wood by several methods; the  wood may be heated until it  breaks down into gas and charcoal; the charcoal may be partially burned to carbon monoxide with air, or steam may be  passed through red hot cliar-  coal yto form carbon mdnpxide  with; the use of  wood for gas have already been  carried out by the B.C. Electric.  These; indicated that numerous  problems remain to be solved  before a satisfactory process is  developed.  The investigation will be carried out by W. J. Dyckof the  council's staff under the direction of Dr. R. H. Wright, head  of the division of chemistry. Mr.  Dyck was formerly engaged in  fuel research with the fuel  research board of the department of mines and resources in  Ottawa. ���.'"..  THE CARSONS���Though the names of many famous families fill the pages of British Columbia's brief but colorful past, undoubtedly this province's best known and best  loved family today are the plain, hard-working Carsons of  VVillowbrook; Farm who really exist only in the minds of radio  listeners.  -**-������       -��_*��*- ~w     **      |_*IWT��l_WaW��l       IIWITTVI   \^.g        TTI   IVI  W        t I   IV J        WI ��  W-   .

In  real life the Carsons are four leading west coast actors: Juan  Root (Bill), Cathfyn Johnston (Ann), Irene Robertson (Mary)  and Bill Buckingham (John Carson).  Writer Scores Behaviour  Of Child Movie Goers  local Bank Is  MADEIRA PARK���-Master Joe  Lee Celebrated his ninth  birthdayyori: July 15. About 12  children and 12 gtown-ups attended -a party given in Joe's  honor, A lovely lunch was  served afterwards. Mr. E. Carpenter entertained with magic  tricks which were greatly enjoyed >"_Byi yevferybrie. y "Biggest  surprise of all was when Mr.  Carpenter mixed up some cotton batten, Nblue and red tissue  paper, waved his magic wand  and turned the: concoction into  orangeade.        -  "I HAVE lived here many  years," said an old resident  of Gibsons recently, "and I  never expected to be able to  arrange a bank loan of about  $3,000 in a few minutes as I  did the other day after discussing my problems with Mr. j. R.  Pudney, manager of t^e Carrall  and Hastings Streets branch of  the Bank of Montreal, which  operates the sub-agency at  Gibsons.  "I haves banked in Vancouver for a long time \and if I  needed a loan, or wanted to get  advice I had to spend time and  money getting to and from the  city and there were occasions  when I could spare neither. I  have transferred my account  recently and can now do my  banking exactly as before if I.  so wish; in addition, I get the  advantage of local service two  days a (week. I think all residents v :pf: Gibson .->and:l nearby  points should give our local  bank their full support.'  ��>  By Aries  TIMES have changed since we  were children. Perhaps our  parents were unduly harsh but  our attention has been drawn to  the uncouth behavior of the  local youths and children at the  movie shows, which makes it  almost impossible to hear the  picture and very unpleasant for  the adult population, who look  forward to these shows once a  week. It also inflicts a hardship on Mr. West who stands to  lose out financially if the noise  continues.  It has been noticed wheii the  teachers were at the shows they  were considerably quieter. It is  no new experience to have a  youth's foot on each side of one's  neck as they use the front of  seat to sit on. and the back of  the seat in front for a foot rest.  It makes one wonder if these  young people have ever been tp  a show in Vancouver and what  would happen there if they behaved as they do here.  'We appreciate the difficulty  under which Mr. West operates.  He can only make a small margin of prof it. So. after all let's  not���.get completely bushed. Lets  act "a little civilized and' give  this veteran a chance to make  a living.  By being quiet, taking our  seats quickly when the picture  is showing, refraining from  loud talking during the show,  and keeping our feet on the  floor, we can let others enjoy  the picture too.  To the parents who send their  children, instruct them to stay  in their seajfcs, leave their dogs  at home or tie them up outside,  and not to play and fight with  each other in the hall at any  time. Then we shall all be happier and Mr. West will have  something more to show for his  labors tljan a headache.  POLICE GET NEW CAR  SECHELT ���Local   detachment  of  the  provincial  police  received a new Ford sedan today  for police work.  Enroll in Summer  GIBSONS���Over 65 happy boys  and girls between the ages of  4-14 enrolled to enjoy two  weeks of daily vacation Bible  school at the Pentecostal Tabernacle.  Bible stories, quizzes, games,  handwork and woodcraft were  the outstanding features planned for boys and girls. Action  choruses helped to direct the  "excess energy" possessed by  children into the right channel.  : The closing day, Friday, July  18, was marked by a record attendance of 53. In the evening  many parents and friends attended the program arranged  by the boys and girls and to  view the colorful display eft  handwork.  Misses J. Pennoyer and F.  Clemo were ably assisted by  Mrs. A. Goodwin and Margaret  Clarke as teachers.  Similar schools will be held  at Roberts Creek, July 21-26;  Sechelt, August 4-8.  These schools are conducted  on a nonsectarian basis with the  aim to reach boys and girls with  the Gospel.  Gibsons Composer  Enters Anthems   ,  GIBSONS���This district is to be  well represented in the current nation-wide anthem contest. E. J. Atlee, of Headlands,  has submitted three of his compositions to the headquarters of  the Canadian Legion, sponsors  of the contest.  "The requirements of the  selection call for a melody of  march tempo, adaptable to the  addition of words, and suitable  for singing. The possible ultimate purpose of the search is to  acquire a new anthem, which  could replace O Canada, about  which there is recurring controversy.  Mr. Atlee takes by no means  all the credit for his compositions to himself. He composes  the air to his selections, and  hums them to Mrs. Atlee, who  writes them, out and arranges;  the harmony. Mrs. Atlee is  well qualified for this part of  the process, having qualified  for her L.R.S.M. at the age of  sixteen, and specialized in piano  theory.  While Mr. Atlee points out  the fact that hundreds of contestants, some of them professional song writers, are competing in this contest, with  three of his works in the run-  ing it is quite possible that Gibsons may be the home of the  winner when the leading entry  is chosen.  Alf Erickson says "Hello" to  Britannia friends. He is enjoying a nice vacation here.  : London's new taxis can do 80  ni.p.h.

The north coast's Most Modem Department Store  By ARIES  THE M. & W. logging camp at  Doriston, Sechelt Peninsula,  had as their guests recently,  friends from their old home  town of Jordan River, Vancouver Island, Mr. and Mrs. John  Veness and Doreen, and Mrs.  George Emmersdn and Murray.  The weather was splendid and  so they were able to a little  fishing. This being their first  trip to Sechelt they were very  much impressed by the beautiful scenery of Sechelt Inlet.  This r.eminds me that I recently  met the girl that gave Doriston  its name. She was Doris Lloyd  and as pretty as they come. She  married Clifford Hammond of  Nelson Island. Clifford passed  on a few years ago. She has one  son named Earle recently back  from overseas, and she is employed by David Spencer Ltd.  Mr. and Mrs. William Mills  with Ruth and Ruby were  spending a few days with Mrs.  Mills of West Sechelt.  The Royal Lifesaving Society  of Vancouver gave a wonderful  display on Sunday last of what  -to do and what hot to do in the  water, too bad this was not  publicized as there were very  few people there and it seems  such a pity after all the trouble  and expense not to profit by the  efforts of these young people.  Those of us who were there  however, enjoyed it immensely,  and will be wiser now when in  the water or a boat. -  It would seem appropriate at  this time to mention the Kean  family. The Keans are one of our  pioneer families and Mr. R. C.  Kean first came to Sechelt in  1911. He stayed with his sister  Mrs. Ed Martin on the property  now- pecupied by Minton yNfew-  combe and owned by Alex  Kean.  He has always taken a great  interest in community life and  has played badminton 20 years  here without a break. He has  one daughter Violet, and one  son Robert, who is postal clerk  employed by Union Steamships,  and married Jennie Gowland.  They have two little boys. We  all remember affectionately Mr.  and Mrs. R. Kean who were  amongst our earliest ' settlers  and the mother and father of  R.C. They are now at rest,  having passed on a few years  ago.  We are indebted to. these  early settlers for blazing the  trails and clearing the land for  the newcomers who know them  not. Would that the same spirit  /was abroad today. Those Were  indeed kindly times when the  simple things of life were enjoyed and every man helped his  neighbour. And so to the Keans  and thbse like you, "We salute  you."  '���*.*������  Very enjoyable are the beach  bonfires in front of the Inn  every evening. Singing is enjoyed and a spirit of good fellowship prevails. When I was  there a few nights agp, the beach  was crowded, and Mr. Childs  with the violin and Mr. Frederickson put on a good show.  Mrs. Frederickson tells me  everyone is welcome. A cupfof  coffee is served and some people  now bring along a few sandwiches and really make a night  of ifcr-sQ get together and come  along;    ,���  ���*..���* -.���.* . ���  Well, well, so Mrs. Ross is a  granthiibther once more. W_e  understand that Mr. and Mrs.  Donald Ross are the ptoud parents of twins, a boy and a girl,  born July 14. Donald is well  known at Pender Harbour, hav  ing lived with his mother there.  His sister is Mrs. Jay, primary  teacher at Sechelt School. Must  remark that Mrs. Ross is still a  very young looking grandma.  * *    *  Dr. and Mrs. John F. Hill and  Mrs. Grange V. Holt, also Mr.  and Mrs. Haines, have arrived  for the summer and are staying  at their West Sechelt residences  Have very pleasant memories of  Vi and Jo Holt. Although! do  not see much of them these  days. Do remember the late  George V. Holt who was very  kind to me on numerous occasions when Canada was a  strange country to me, when as  a young war bride I was so  heartily homesick. I could  always depend on both Mr. and  Mrs. Holt for quiej cheer and  good counsel. These things are  n^ver forgotten. Mr. Holt was  a great loss to all who knew  him, when he passed on.  * *    ���  Earle Grey lost a bet recently  that should teach him. Brother  Dennis called his bluff and  caught a big one, just like that,  went out and enticed him into  the. boat.   Good for you, Dennis.  Mr. and Mrs. Ron. Redman  had a wonderful time in Alaska.  DISTRICT residents were intrigued Sunday afternoon and  again yesterday by the sight of  the R.CJST. frigate "Charlotte-  town" steaming majestically by  with a cargo of sea cadets from  Esquimalt camp aboard. The.  ship passed Powell River Sunday about 5:30 p.m., coming from  Vancouver Island direction and  heading south toward the city.  Yesterday morning the frigate,  -went by again, this time north.

REVIVAL of the old Mexican  (or Spanish) prison swindle  practised intermittently for  many years in various parts of  Canada has brought a warning  from the R.p.M.P. through the  Canadian press against this  particular type of fraud.  Two years  ago a  Cranberry  Lake man received one of the  cleverly-produced letters, whicn  are   actually   printed   but   are  made to resemble handwriting,  inviting him to become rich with  the  investment  of  a few  dollars. ;, - ���    .   -y .;" ������-'.'/"��� V-'r -.'������'    ��� %  Last week a Westview resident, a widow, received one of  the  invitations,  and  when  she  showed   it  to   The  News,   was  "more than partly-interested in  the "opportunity."   Fortunately  the editorial staff was able to  convince her, by referring to its  files, that she was just another  name on the "sucker list" used  by these operators.  The swindle,, headed by a  group of confidence men with  headquarters in Mexico, starts  with a letter alleged to be written by a prisoner in a Mexican  jail. '  The R.OM.P. bulletin says:  "The letters dated May 30th,  1947, give a detailed account of  how the writer, Albert L. Martin, a banker in Vera Cruz,  Mexico, made some poor speculations. About to be arrested  for bankruptcy, he converted  his assets into American money,  concealed it in a trunk and sent  HADDOCK and STEPHENS  ENGINEERING  MARINE ��� LOGGING ��� AUTOMOTIVE  GENERAL REPAIRS  SALES and SERVICE  Madeira Park  Pender Harbour  -  NEXJ WEEK'S MOVIES  Bing Crosby, Gloria Jean in  "IF I HAD MY WAY"  Plus NEWS and SHORTS  PENDER HARBOUR���Tuesday, July 29  SECHELT ��� Thursday.

The story goes  on to say that he and his 18-  year-old daughter were arrested at the Mexican border by the  Mexican  police,  and their* belongings     were     seized.     His  daughter was placed in a public boarding school and Martin  was sentenced to a term of imprisonment.   The prisoner Martin, representing himself to be in  destitute circumstances because  of his imprisonment,  and worried about his daughter, urgently requests financial aid in order  that he can get his money from  the trunk in the United States  customs house.    The name and  address  of  an intermediary  in  Mexico is given and according  to statements in the correspondence, the interrhediary will make  all necessary arrangements for  receiving the desired funds.   In  ireturri. foi; such, financial assistance one-third of the fabulous  sum of money in the trunk will  go to his benefactor.  'The R.C.M. Police warn all  persons to be on their guard  against this old, swindle, perpetrators of which are internationally active at the present  time."  'S  Public Warned  Currency Experts  SECHELT Peninsula district  merchants are warned by  local police to be on guard  against two men, posing as federal currency experts, who have  been obtaining money under  false pretenses in Vancouver  and vicinity. '       /i  ; A wire ^rom Vancouver head-y  quarters "to ' vthe Powell 'Riv��r-  detachment gave the following  particulars of the thieves. Two  persons representing themselves as Captain Chisholm and  Captain Saunders, currency experts and investigating with rer  spect to bogus money have been  operating iri Vancouver and  Burnaby with considerable success.      \'  INSPECT BILLS  "These persons call at stores,  auto camps, and ask to be shown  all currency in the till for purposes of inspection, as they are  looking-for j 'counterfeit bills.  They usually take a $2,0 bill and  state that it is bogus, give the  proprietor a receipt saying it  can be cashed in some particu-'  lar bank."  In one case the pair managed  to take $100 in American currency.  DESCRIPTION  No description is available at  present of Saunders, but Chis-;;  holm is described as 27 years of  &q��f- 5^ feet i 11 inches; ;*"!56#Ibs#  veiy dark complexion, dark  brown hair, with hair receding  and brushed straight back, hollow cheeks But full lips, hazel  eyes. He is reported to be well  dressed and fluent of speech,!  either Canadian or American  nationality.  "These men have been ob-y  taming money by misrepresent-"  ing themselves as federal officers," warned Powell River  police, "and they are apparently convincing enough to fool a  number: of persons,- They probably' have bogus identification  to proiduce1 -if.-'*necessary, but  most folksy are po^easily,#ake��iy  in, they 'woiild never suspect  someone from the currency department. : On the contrary,  they do what ever they can to.  assist them���-that is why the  men have been so successful."

The holiday to be exclusive of  statutory holidays, and in one  unbroken    period    within 10  months    after    employee has  earned it.  For short-term employment,  or where an employee terminates his employment during the  course of a working year, he is  to receive one-eighth of a regular day's pay for each week of  actual work performed to the  date of termination.  (If the employee is not available to collect holiday pay, the  money shall be forwarded to  the B.C. Board of Industrial  Relations.)  The act is effective as from  July, 1946, and all persons employed on that date start their  employment period for holidays  as at that date, if no agreement  more favorable to the employee  be in effect. Any act, agreement, or condition of service in  existence at that date which is  less favorable to an employee is  null and void.  Inspectors are empowered to  examine employer's books and  records, which must show proper entries regarding worked  time, pay and holiday pay, and  penalties are provided for  neglect.  An employee is deemed to  have performed six^ days of  actual work when in the course  of a week he has completed the  number of working shifts normally worked at his place of  employment.  Fractions of a week worked  do rio^ entitle an employee to  fractions of the one-eighth day's  pay- .,������...

THE commonwealth government is determined to have  automobiles and trucks manufactured completely within  Australia. Vehicle bodies and  many parts and components  have been made for years, but  the last step, the manufacture  of chassis in Australia has not  been taken up to the present.  In 1940, Australian Consolidated Industries, a concern  which had no previous experi  ence in the vehicle industry,  contracted with the government  to produce an all-Australian  car within two years, but this  intention was frustrated by the  war. The war did, however,  provide opportunities for great  technical experience to all the  companies, and several specific  proposals were put forward by  some of the actual manufacturers.  Few of the firms putting forward plans for the production  of an all-Australian car have set  definite production dates. One  company, however, has stated  that it could be in full production on a vehicle 95 per cent  Australian, within two years.  The implications of this  policy are particularly significant   for   Canada,   as  over  a  period of-years her exports of  vehicle   chassis   and   parts   to  Australia   have   aggregated   25  per cent of the total value of  trade with the commonwealth.  In 1945, there were 70 factories  engaged in the construction and  assembly of motor vehicles, but  three quarters of the assembly  was done by three organizations.  General Motors-Holden's Ltd.  uses Canadian chassis for" Chevrolet cars and utilities, and  Maple Leaf trucks. Ford Motor  Company of Australia Pty.  Ltd., imports Canadian chassis  for Ford V-8 and Mercury cars  and utilities, and Ford trucks,  while Chrysler-Dodge Distributors (Australia) Pty.

THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay, B. C.  Page Seven  SECRET COVE  By INEZ WILLISON  On Saturday, July 5, Mr. R.  Sinclair launched his 32-foot  boat that he built all by himself.  Not only that <but for years he  beaehcombed logs or lumber  suitable for the boat, and planed  them down. Mr. Sinclair has  been working on the building  of the boat these past two years,  and a fine job he has done too.  It is strong and well built; a  boat he can be mighty proud of.  *  Oh what a beautiful morning!  is   justr- what   Jorgensons   and  their guest Austrings were say-  . ing on Monday, July 14, as they  *were  planing  for   a  speedboat  frip to Jervis Inlet.    On their  way stopped in at Garden Bay  arid picked up one of the nurses  (from the hospital to go  along  .with them on the trip.  'All went fine. The country  iwas most beautiful for Califor-  [nians to see, and time went  [fast. They started for home  Bust before the big storm. All  would have been all right, but  lust then the engine got tired  fend decided to take a rest, away  but in the open where the waves  [and storm made them all feel  pot only wet but pretty small.  [After an hour or better Edward  [finally got the tired engine  Kvorking again and slowly they  arrived at Garden Bay. They  figured they all had had enough  boat ride for one day and  thought the best thing to do was  try and get a car ride from  there to Secret Cove.  That was easier said than  done in the middle of the night.  At last the nurse managed to  wake Mr. A. Fitchy from a  wonderful dream (he would  much rather. have finished  than to have to get up at that  time of the night, weather and  all). However he did, and they  are all back home, only a sniffle  or two added from their adventure.

It is not good  business to spend money on forest improvements  nor leave any part of a stand of trees uncut (to  serve as a source of seed) unless we ensure that  fire will not ravage the improvements or the uncut  seed-trees. The Government needs your co-operation in limiting or eliminating the annual scourge  of fire. In actual fact the "Forest Act" of British  Columbia lists a number of things you, as a citizen,  are required to do. These include reporting all  forest fires you see; securing a permit to light any  campfires near the forest during the months of  May to September; and helping to fight any forest  fires that you may run across or be asked to fight.  Fighting a forest fire is dirty, exhausting, and sometimes dangerous work. It should, however, be regarded as a privilege by all right-thinking, able-  bodied citizens because it is in the interests of  every member of our population.  E.T.

Bowdler,   whose  appointment as account executive in the Vancouver office of  Canadian   Advertising   Agency  LAST NIGHT'S rain, with m6re  promised today, eased the forest fire hazard appreciably, local forestry officials said. Hu-,  midity had been dropping steadily due to fine weather and was  at the danger point over the  weekend-.  ^Forestry prevention crews answered a call to Harwood Island, where a camper's beach  fire had been neglected, not  having been completely destroyed. It fanned info flame late  Sunday night and on the arrival of crews was threatening  the timber stand over a half-  acre space.  No timber was lost.  In this connection, Assistant  Ranger Bill Otto voiced a warn  ing against leaving camp fires  with any sign of life, and particularly on the Harwood Island  area. "This is a reserve and a  popular spot for picnickers," he  said. "If such carelessness continues, the Island will very likely be closed for campfires altogether, and a lot of people will  lose a favorite spot because of  the negligence of a few."  Campfire permits axe necessary,  forestry  officials   pointed  out, for fires lighted anywhere  during the fixe season, which  lasts until September 30 each  year. They may be obtained  without charge at police offices,  forestry department, or government agent's offices.  Forestry officials pointed out  that at the present time forest  fire hazard was low, but cautioned against carelessness at  any time.  Ltd. is announced by R. M.  Dagg, Vancouver manager.
