Air Taxies Used  Widely al Sechelt  SECHELT���Air travel has become increasingly popular in  S|echelt peninsula area due to  frequent visits of seaplanes  owned by the Associated Air  Taxis Ltd., with headquarters  at A.M.F., Vancouver.  The firm was organized by a  group of experienced airmen  soon after their return from  overseas. They own two Fleet  Canucks and one Fleet Seven  seaplanes. They have been engaged for many purposes such  as rushing parts to logging  camps for broken down equipment, carrying injured men to  doctors and hospitals, sightseeing tours over the lower mainland coast, taking sportsmen  to lakes not easily reached by  land, and successfully used for  cruising timber.  Directors of the firm are  Dennis Pierce, W. Purcello, Len  Milne and R. B. Gayer. Among  the shareholders are two men  well known on the peninsula,  Norm Burley of Vancouver and  Ted Osborne of Sechelt. Pierce  and Purcello are active as pilots  and are assisted by a third pilot,  Doughlas Harthy.  Dennis.. Pierce  served   as   a  major with  the  Seaforths   1st.  Battalion< oyer seas.   He, was ,at-  officer on flying duties in Ehg~  land. He has always been  keenly interested in flying and  before the war spent four and  a half years in the R. A.F.  Bill Purcello was a flight  lieutenant in the R.C.A.Fiy and  was busily engaged during the  war as instructor in the air  transport command overseas.  Ben Milne is chief instructor  of the Aero Club of B.C. During the war he held the rank of  flight lieutenant in the R.C.A.F.  training command and meteorological flight.  The Associated Air Taxis Lfd.  are strongly considering using  Porpoise Bay, Sechelt Inlet, as  a winter base for one of its  planes. '  et $6,000 �����  SECHELT���Experts   who   blew  open the safe in the Union  Estates store here at 4 a.m.  Sunday escaped with more than  $1,000 in currency, $4,350 in  bonds���half negotiable to bearer  ���and personal gewelry and  effects valued at $500.  The robbery was discovered  ��by store manager E. S. Clayton,  at approximately 11 a.m. Sunday.  Police at Sechelt said entry  to the store was gained by.  forcing the front door. The  yeggs carefully locked it behind them and covered the windows before going to work on  the old six-foot-high wall safe.  The dial was chopped off  with an axe from the store's  stock, and explosive detonated.  Police are certain the job  was done by an expert with the  possible assistance of accomplices with local knowledge  and information.  LEFT IN BOAT  From "certain information  found oh the beach," police believe there were four burglars  who may have left the scene  by boat, possibly for Vancouver.-   *.'���..''  A  man   known   as   "Dave,"  tore Sunday  with a nasal voice, is reportedly  being sought:"  Report by a resident of seeing a car in the vicinity at the  approximate time of the getaway is being checked.  Personal effects and jewelry  stolen was property of R. S.  Hackett, Estates manager.  Mr. Hackett said he lost  bonds valued at $675, and his  son bonds valued at $280.  Sechelt police are making an  intensive search for the missing bonds believing they may  have been abandoned in this  area. There is still doubt as to  how the men gained entrance  to the building.  The safe was found with the  door open and the contents  scattered on the floor. Three  sacks of flour were used on a  stool to muffle the - explosion.  The fact that tools from the  stock in the store l^ad been used  in the operation indicated to  police that the culprits must  have been, familiar with the  locality. The front door of the  store and adjoining door into  the post office section was found  jimmied. Three men are suspected.  rarmers  One-Year Course  A SPECIAL one-year occupational course in agriculture  will be offered again this September by the University of  British Columbia.  The course permits special  studies in such agricultural  branches as field crops, dairying, horticulture, poultry, animal husbandry and agricultural  mechanics. It is planned  for men and women already  operating farms, working on  fs/ms or intending to go farming.  No special academic standing  is required for the occupational  course. Students must be mature and anxious to learn.  The occupational course has  been carried at U.B.C. for about  15 years, and has proved popular and valuable. During the  1946-47 winter session more  than 50 men and women were  enrolled. An even greater  number is expected to register  this fall.  Information about this course  can be obtained by writing to  Dean F. M. Clement, faculty of  agriculture, at < the University  of B.C., in Vancouver.  SECRET COVE  By INEZ WILLISON  MR.

It can  also mean a step on the road to  success ... for it takes only  a dollar to open a savings account in the Bank of Montreal.  When you encourage your  child in the habit of regular  savings, you do much more than  build a bank account. You help  him to achieve stability, pur-  posefulness, patience . _ . help  him to help himself.  By the time he is ready to  begin his full-time career, he  will realize the value of a financial reserve that may enable  him to ward off misfortune or  take advantage of opportunity.  Saving regularly teaches a  boy or girl to prepare for future  opportunity and to build  against misfortune. You can  help your young one help himself by forming the Bank of  Montreal saving habit.  The Bank of Montreal, Car-  rail and Hastings Streets, Vancouver, operates a sub-agency  at Gibsons every Tuesday and  Friday. Why not send your  youngster around to them to  open an account?

IKBOABSS ��� OUTBOARDS  ACCESSORIES  Agents fox Brig-g-s & Stratton  By ARIES  MR AND Mrs. Fred Mills had  a very pleasant surprise recently when Mr. and Mrs. Al  Eggins of North Vancouver  called in to say hello. They  left North Vancouver at 4 a.m.  on July 24 in a 16-foot motor-  boat for Nanaimo. They stayed  overnight there with friends  and then proceeded to Sechelt,  arriving July 25 at 5:30 p.m..  which is good travelling.  Al is an ex-policemjam of  Vancouver and both he and his  wife are well known here from  previous visits. The two families spent most of their time  fishing between Sechelt and  Halfmoon Bay, but Fred, not  having Les and the now familiar fruit jar along, didn't have  any luck.  However Fred finally hooked  a large one. Word was passed  along that a whopper was expected. Motor was shut off,  never a word was spoken, the  girls stopped eating peanuts, Al  whipped off his shirt ahd started looking for a blackjack and  a pair of handcuffs. Still no  word was spoken. Al slipped,  started to go the side, but his  wife got a grip on his belt. Al  once more was back on his feet  with the tiller handle grasped  firm. Ah, wrong instrument;  gets the gaff hook, and he slipped again, and away went the  salmon." ���  "Well,"  says  Al,   "we  missed  that one, Fred."  They still did not speak, when  big-hearted Fred says, "Never  mind, Al, it was only a ling  cod."  Fred had better stick to his  fruit jar. But they had a lot of  fun. Bythe way, we understand  that just before they left, Doreen Mills received a little  present Which caused a lot of  laughter. We know what it was  but we won't tell.

Bv 'Enrietta 'Obbs,  Pender Harbour  SOMEONE once wrote something about the art of growing old gracefully. If there is  such an art I, for one, have  never even got within speaking  distance of it. Not that I haven't tried to grow old gracefully.  I have. I have tried Whoosit's  remedy for sagging skin, Whats-  it's cure for thin throats, and  all the rest of the aids that enable one to grow old gracefully.  The result?    Exactly nil.  If  anyone  had  told  me  ten  years ago that the face staring  back at me from the mirror to- ���  day would one day belong to  me,  I would have thrown the  lie back in his teeth.    Now I  have  grown so < accustomed  to  ..that, visage v^ith the. dejected  bloodhound appearance, that I  can stare right back at it and  say, "Yes, that face belongs to  you.    Whether  you like  it  or  not, you are stuck with it.    So  what!"  Alas, and alack, when I am in  the presence of others, all my  bravery and sang-froid desert  me.   When anyone looks at the  missing from the dinner table,  Mom no longer worries. They  can be found enjoying the  scrumptious hamburgers with a  follow up of a timber float at  Tilly's and Art's.

According to ah article in the Science Digest^ a Dr. Thomas  Rivers of the Rockefeller Institute is quoted as saying that he  feels we are in a pandemic, or time of world-wide epidemic, such  as the influenza outbreak of 1917-18. During the last four years  there has been the largest total number of cases bf polio in the  United States in the history of the nation.  Yet there is a brighter side to the picture. Improved methods  of treating this dread disease have appreciably lowered the number  of victims who emerge crippled or even permanently disabled.  Many now recover completely and a good percentage with only  minor after-effects.  Ma^be if the scientists could drag themselves away from  atomic research long enough, they might find a cure for this, and  other scourges of humanity. In the meantime it's up to us, so  swat that fly, use the D.D.T. generously, keep milk cool and  covered, wash little hands often, and keep your own fingers crossed.  BLACK MARKET CARS  A few weeks ago we took a trip to Vancouver to buy a secondhand car. To anyone who harbors similar intentions we say  "Don't" with a capital I>. We were very lucky as it happened���  we got a car in fair condition from a private owner, but the dealers  ���oy! They just don't have any conscience. Seven or eight hundred  for jalopys that would fall apart on the first mile. New cars,  extremely slightly used, just enough to circumvent the law in  fact, selling for far more than tjheir cost price.  This practice is such a bare-faced racket that I cannot understand why it is countenanced. Surely if there is no law that can  be applied to these black-marketers, one should be written into  the statutes. And, in my humble opinion, both the buyer and the  seller should be prosecuted. There would be no black markets if  there were no customers for their wares.  fy *      *      *  With two kittens and one cat sharing our bed and board, you  would think that mice would steer clear of the Devitt abode. But  lately we have been honored by a small nocturnal visitor who  must be the noisiest and clumsiest rodent in existence. Aloysius  likeitto have cookies on the dresser, so that he can wake up at dawn  and have a snack. Little mousie appreciates this no end. First  he knocks a cookie tp Jhe^flapr, then he tumbles scramblingly after  it and drags it away to his lair. Since we usually find the cookie  in.the clothes closet,next day, we assume that he must have a hole  there but we couldn't find it. So we set a trap. Three nights went  by an_i nothing happened. The fourth day, something did get  caught in the trap. Huh-uh, you guessed it���Me!

Dr. Hugh  Inglis at Gibsons to assist his  brother, Dr. Allan. Inglis, the  medical service on the peninsula has been greatly improved  with new office hours and an  extension of regular medical  services to Halfmoon Bay.  Sechelt hours are now: Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m.  to 3 p.m.; Saturday from 1 to 3  p.m., in place of the old Tuesday and Friday schedule.  Halfmoon Bay office hours  will be from 10 a.m. to 12 noon  on Saturday, in the McKenzie  and Flavelle offices. These  changes are effective immediately.  The Sechelt office has undergone a transformation during  the past few months and is now  equipped with an oil heater,  and is quite Suitable for winter  use, X-ray equipment for this  office is on the "expected" list,  to be delivered- very shortly,  we hope. ��� ��  Dr. Hugh practises full time  in the Gibson office, and while  the newest modern equipment,  such as a basal metabolism  machine and a large X-ray now  on order, are not immediately  available, the Doctors Inglis  have been able to and are performing small operations, ie,  tonsilectomies, etc., very satisfactorily  indeed.

All this, besides overhearing  a hardware merchant say he  was going to do a paint-up job  ... and the new wharf besides.  Less sightseeing and more  shoppmg: preserving is aided  by the offer at the large general  store that will order your apricots at their peak for you.

Back  again  on  Main street,  is included in that satisfaction  of course.  This improved* service is an  example of what teamwork can  do���in this, case it means improved service to the whole  district and at least a few hours  "off duty" for the doctors concerned.

Page Six  THE COAST NEWS, Halfmoon Bay; B. C.  Friday, August 1, 1947  SECHELT ��� Approximately  $100,000 will be invested in a  new mill at Porpoise Bay by the  B.C. Fir Company Ltd., Sechelt  division. After considerable difficulty in attempting to obtain  sites on Union Steamship property and on the Sechelt Indian  reserve,   the   company   finally  purchased   19   waterfront   lots  from A. Crucil at Sechelt.  The new site adjoins the Indian reserve on the east side of  Porpoise Bay and was chosen  when negotiations fell through  for the two previous sites after  Union Steamship directors  turned down a request for site  near the Porpoise Bay wharf.  The most suitable site chosen  was the reserve. Many steps  had to be taken to get the  necessary permit to build on  the Indian reservation. The  final step was to have a meeting  of the Sechelt tribe in order to  get the approval of the majority.  Months had been wasted and  it seemed that more would be  while waiting for the Indians to  meet and it seemed almost certain that most of them would  not be assembling until Christmas of this year. Meanwhile  approximately 600,000 feet of  timber has been lying in the  bay waiting to be sawn.  TWO MILLS  Two mills will be installed, a  Swedish gang saw, recently  constructed by Heaps Engineering works, and a circular saw  mill. The total production will  be approximately 40,000 feet  per day.  The mills will be powered by  electricity and diesel and will  give employment for about 30  or 40 men. Only rough lumber  will be cut at the start; later on  a planer will be installed to  dress some of the lumber. A  short railway, about 1,000 feet  long, including the spurs, will  be constructed for the loading  and distribution of the lumber.  Operating on it will be a locomotive crane known as a Brown  hoist, converted from steam to  gasoline power. It has a 50-foot  boom with capacity for lifting  about 20 tons, and it will also  push and pull loaded flat cars.  A small dredge is now on  hand to do the dredging and  help build up the foreshore so  that a scow can be loaded from  a dock on which a spur of the  railway will extend.  Local men will be employed  in the mills. Ted Timbridge of  Mission City, who is in immediate charge of construction, will  be the mill superintendent.  Enough   iron _. and    steel   to  build two battleships are,used  every   year   by   the   Canadian;  heating   industry   in   the   production of furnaces and stoves.  More than 1,250,000 Canadian  homes have no "bathtubs or  showers.  It Happened At  WAKEFIELD  One of our patron's claims  to have wired the Northern Lights . . .

EAT ACROSS THE  STREET  ���U.S. Public Health Service Photo  THESE WORKERS are lined up for their chest X-rays���to  make sure that they haven't tuberculosis. Periodic chest  X-rays, to find TB. before its outward symptoms are apparent, are advocated by tuberculosis associations. The campaign of the associations against the disease is supported by  the sale of Christmas Seals. The mobile van will, begin its  three-weeks visit in Powell River and district on August 11.  WATER in the home sometimes  runs brown, and householders  often blame the heater or piping. The Canadian Institute of  Plumbing and Heating explains  that the brown color is probably  sediment from the water supply  which has been disturbed from  the bottom of the water mains  or the range boiler where "it  has settled. Although harmless  it is not particularly pleasant.  If hot and cold water systems  both run brown, the cause is  probably men working on the  city mains; disturbing accumulations of fine silt which have  settled in a thin layer on the  bottom of the pipes.. If only  the hot water system runs  brown, the sediment has been  disturbed from'the bottom of  the range boiler, probably by  water boiling in the tank.  To ensure a clear, pure hot  water supply, the Institute advises householders to drain one  or two gallons of water every  week from the bottom outlet  of the range boiler, thus removing any deposit of sediment.   It  is also recommended to maintain a low, steady fire which  will provide adequate supplies  of hot water without boiling the  water in the tank.  When a man walked into a  flower shop in Kensington,  England, demanded money and  attacked Mrs. Elsie Victoria  Jones, the manager, she threw  him out and called police.  One tanker of gasoline is  enough to drive 5,000 automobiles for a whole year at the  normal rate.

SECHELT WEST  By EARLE GRAY  THE residents of West Sechelt  are looking forward to the  opening of the new store, the  "Summit General Store." It is  to carry a complete line of  groceries and other goods.  The proprietors,-Mr. Hartman  and his sister, have gained much  experience in serving the public. In Toronto they owned and  operated a tourist camp and  store for over ten years. From  this invaluable experience they  hope to give their customers  superior personal service.  Mr. Hanson and Mrs. Hart-  man admire the co-operative  attitudes of West Sechelt's residents and are looking forward  to a friendly relationship.  Date of opening is not as yet  set but it is expected that it will  be in the not too distant future.  * *    *  Fred MacDonald spent the  week-end with his parents, Mr.  and Mrs. L. W. MacDonald.

It  was a hard fought game all the  way through but Harvey Rees  put Mount Sheer well ahead by  hitting a home-run with the  bases loaded. Final score was  Mount Sheer Legion, 11; Hardwoods 4.  Woodfibre C.C. travelled to  Squamish in the evening to  play Legion, winning 11-3. This  also was a hard fought game���  more so than the score indicates. The highlight of the  game was a triple play by the  Squamish Legion. Jack Ma-  hood, first baseman for Squamish Legion, speared a line drive,  touched his sack and relayed to  Lassman, the second baseman,  who completed the triple. It  was a lovely clean play and  showed that the boys were on  their toes.  In the third game for the day,  Squamish Recreation Assn. team  travelled to the Townsite at  Britannia, playing Britannia  Mines C.C. The Miners won  13-4. You'll note that the  "Rec" team has yet to win one,  but this last game was the  best performance they have  made to date. They acquired  the services of Eddie Patenaude  which has helped to bolster the  team considerably.  The Upper Howe Sound Softball league standing follows:  W   L  Pet.  Woodfibre C.C.     7  Mt.
