Walmsley, into  his fishboat, the "Armour," after  he spotted him floating in the  water a mile off Caulfield at  7:10 a.m. The ship he hacf  leaped from was on its way to  Vancouver from Powell River,  where Walmsley was employ-  ���ed as accountant with the B.C.  Bridge and Dredge Company.  He had suffered a breakdown  in the paper town, and was being accompanied to Vancouver  yfor treatment by a B.C.

Committee members state  they have never seen much enthusiasm for the showing of  stock and it is believed that  exhibition facilities will be taxed to capacity.

Although closed to the handling  of large passenger and freight  boats, the increased facilities of  the municipal floats have permitted the moorage of a great  cluster of craft, and the bay is  often dotted with pleasure and  fishing boats lying at anchor.  Business may not be as usual,  but it is still a harbour, and the  port is not taking its temporary  disability lying down.  - *    *    *  The record temperatures -...  brought record'crowds-from they  city to the comparative coolness of the peninsula. All  types of transportation did their  share in bringing and returning  the holidayers, and if May 24 is  any reliable preview the summer should find another record  throng of visitors here.  After finishing his dinner, Bill  a mill-worker, went to the hot-  water urn and carefully rinsed  out his tea-can. His pal watched him do this three times, then  said:  "I say, mate, don't you know  there's a shortage bf water."  "I know that," said Bill  haughtily. "I read the papers,  don't I? It's cold water they're  short of, not hot."

Issuing  Plastic Birth  Certificates  THE VITAL statistics division  -of the provincial department  of health and welfare is now  issuing pocket-size plastic birth  certificates.  The first of the new plastic  birth certificates was presented  to Hon. E. C. Carson on Friday,  May 16. The presentation was  made by Hon. Herbert Anscomb,  acting premier,. in the absence  of Premier Hart.  The new birth certificate is  designed for the convenience of  the public and provides the  often-required proof of age in  a neat and handy form. It is a  pocketbook-sized card, somewhat smaller than a drivers  licence, fused in plastic under  ten tons pressure. The certificate is waterproof, tamper-proof  and extremely durable. It is  attractively printed in green,  and contains the birthdate and  registration number, the person's name and sex, birthplace,  date of registration and date of  issue.  Certificates of this type can  be obtained only from the Central Office of the Division of  Vital Statistics in the Parliament  Buildings, Victoria. They will  be issued routinely unless the  more detailed, full-length certificate is specifically requested.

Don't wait until  you're dead.- Your son, your  daughter, your wife, in fact your  whole damn family will curse  you if you don't."  ��� A fine, delicate thought  from an editorial in the Bow-  manville (Ont.) Canadian  Statesman: "Homes where  things true, honest and just prevail, are the source of men and  women who help to make national life clean and strong. The  city beautiful cannot come until  we have the home beautiful.  Educators everywhere are saying that homes are the first line  of our educational system."  ��� O-o-o, what the man said:  The Tweed (Ont.) News commenting editorially on the  CBC's broadcasting schedule to  show more than 30 per cent of  its time for commercial programs, and the trend on the upswing, says: "There is no possible way for the CBC to whitewash such a gross violation of  the principles of free enterprise,,  on which the economy of this  country is supposed to be founded. It can: best be likened to  one man throttling a smaller  person with the victim's own  necktie. Behind him stands a  government official with a spare  necktie���rjust in case."  ��� The Lachute (Que.) Watchman, analyzing the Citizenship  Bill thinks it important that  young Canadians should be  taught that . the well-being of  other communities is as important to national life as the prosperity of the district in which  they live, adding: "We cannot  attain a world outlook unless  we first adopt a national viewpoint."  ��� Not going to pot: There  are 6,063,000 savings deposits in  pocket-size certificate if they so  desire.  The fee is 50 cents, the same  as for the old-type certificate.  If the registration number is  not quoted, an additional search  fee of 50 cents is required.  Canadian banks, one for every  two  persons  in the  country.  $ The Letter-Review says  what possibly is in the minds  of many: "Mr. Petrillo's latest  impertinence, in refusing 'permission' to record an international school music festival in  Montreal is a challenge to every  theory of law and order in Canada, which the government has  failed to meet, as it failed to  meet his refusal to "permit" an  R.C.A.F. band to broadcast in  Canada during the war.  n  Hat making is a home industry in South America, usually a  side-line to Indian farmers.

"some day" when they will retire to the soil, breathe the  pure air of the country and  drink the clean, clear water of  our creeks.  Mr. Jones has been associated  with Duker and Son for the past  28 years as artist, specializing  in free-hand painting of the  huge sigh boards, advertising  the much used products.  In private life he made a  name for himself as a character  baritone when in 1932 he opened the Beacon Theatre with a  15-piece band. He presented a  show at the opening of the  Olympic Hotel in Seattle, also  the well-known hotels across  Canada.  During the war years Mr.  Jones took time out.to.tour Canada, singing at sanitariums, air  force and army canteens, such  well known places as Shilo and  Brandon, Man., Camp Borden  and Trenton, Ont., Dundern,  Sask., and finally at St. John's  canteen where he remained for  two years.  Mr. Jones  is the son of the  late Mr. Charles Edward Jones,  ��who arrived in Vancouver in  1906 and was famous as the  "Bird Man." Many will remember his aviaries on Hoy St. in  Burnaby. Pictures and recordings were, made of the birds by  the Famous Players Corp.,  Hollywood, and even today we  hear the recordings of the singing, chirping feathered friends  of the famous "Bird Man."

Now for the "Four  Gals in an Olds."  The gals were in New Mexico,  "The Land of Enchantment,"  driving 500 miles the first day  through fruit country and cotton  fields. The most outstanding  scene was "The White Sands."  Scientists do not know what  caused them just appearing out  of nowhere. They are 80 miles  long, and some 16 miles across.  Just like pure sugar, impossible  to traverse without dark glasses,  just dune after dune of clean  white sugar. At certain times  of the day rainbows are reflected from the sands. The gals  took in the world famous Carlsbad Caverns, it being impossible  to describe it. It was just like  an enchanted fairyland all glittering with fantastic colored  stalagmites and stalagtites of  beauty. There are five miles  of subterranean halls and rooms  each with names, such as, The  King's room, Queen's room,  Fairland, Hall of Giants, Rock  of Ages, etc. There is a huge  cafeteria 750 feet underground,  and the gals had lunch there.  There is also a large Bat Cave  where millions of them spend  their years, every night flying  out of their cave for food. The  big room could hold a baseball  diamond and then no batter���  not even "The Babe" in his heyday���could hit a ball to the  ceiling or the end.  The gals  spent  a  day in Ei  Paso shopping and were in fine  fettle and loved the place���there  was no state tax.

Twenty members sat down to a  delightful;repast of���fresh spring  salmon seryed by the ladies of  the W.A. under the direction of  Mrs. T. Allan of Soariies Point.  The president;" Mr. Fred Howlett, then introduced the speaker of the evening; Mr. S. Matthews, who treated his audience  to a delightful trip by motor  through the southern states and  Mexico.  The journey lasted some 18  months and so the speaker had  ample time to assimilate local  data as he sped down the Oregon   Trail-   Texas,   where   the  Ranchers watch their herds by  airplane, and Tom, Dick 'and  Harry own oil wells. New Mexico with its mummies and pyramids as old as Egypt's were also  included in the trip.  He went along the coast to  Texas City and on to Galvaston  with its sea wall, through Louisiana and down the Aryilla  Trail, lush with, flowers, on to  New Orleans arid the Mississippi  where Mark Twain created' Tom  Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.  Mr. Matthews had stories to  tell of Longfellow the poet, and  the land of Evangeline ��� the  Everglades���of Petersburg and  its green benches, and a visit to  the winter quarters of the Ring-  ling Bros, museum and circus.  I heard him say, "It's easy, just  get into your car with a good  map and away you go." But he  forgot to mention the "sponju-  licks."
