When Mrs, Reeve's little  granddaughter, Sharen Danroth,  begins learning her ABC's in  September, she will be wearing  the first prize sweater coat.  Mrs. I. D. Wilson, who is  famed for her exquisite shell  jewelry, had a very fine exhibit  and will have many more admiring purchasers on her waiting list due to its showing.  Mrs. Woods, a daughter of  Mrs. L. Olson of the Upper  Road won a first. It is to be  noted that Mrs. Woods who has  been an invalid for some time  and now happily convalescent,  began to knit; her prize sweater  four days before date of entry.  Earl Foulkes received first  prize for his school work *and  posters.  The Parish Hall in which the  display was held might have  been called a Pavilion of Arts,  both fine and useful.  Mrs. V.

POTTER'S WHEEL  Mrs. A; W. Lowe was sensational at the potter's wheel  when she demonstrated to the  admiring and truly interested  throng hugging the pottery display section. Mrs. Lowe's display included all sizes and types  of decorative pottery and figurines. .The grinning Chinese  coolie boy with his long "pigtail" glazed with her own formula was desired by many.  Mrs.   Jack  Reeves   displayed  hand-drawn pottery made from  the clay taken from her ranch  ;.at Roberts Creek, and baked in  'the   red   coals   of   her   kitchen  range.  Roddy MacKenzie, ^ge 13, displayed eight pieces of pottery  made in 15 days under Mrs.  Lowe's guidance.

GIBSONS ���The   annual   Fall  Fair has come and gone, and  a most successful coming and  going it-was.  First. fair to be held in six  years, thei*e was some question  as to whether people would still  be interested in staging an exhibition of what they have made  and grown, but there is no doubt  now.  Judges were E. W. Clarke,  provincial agriculturist; Prof. E.  -A..Lloyd of U.B.G., the Vancouver Sun Garden Man, Mrs. M.  Henderson and Miss Grace  JamiesoniH The fair was opened  by Herbert Gargrave, M.L.A.,  and attended by James Sinclair.  M:P.    ������'  A visitor .who took a hand in  Judging, and a great interest  in the area was Stan Sorensen,  of the Pacific Co-op at Mission.  Mr. Sorensen toured about the  farming and berry-growing  district, looking at soil and  growing conditions in general.  Both he and Mr. Clarke were  impressed by the quality of the  produce displayed at the ex-  hibition^ and were of the opinion that the district has tire-,  mendous possibilities as an  agricultural unit.  Activities of the day were  housed by three buildings, the  school hall holding the main  exhibits, the Scout hall the pottery and weaving displays, and  the Legion hall serving refreshments. Every feature was a  success.        ���  Viscount Mountbatten is the  grandson of Queen Victoria.  London has been a municipality since the early days of the  Roman occupation of Britain.  THE MECHANICAL equipment of our 150 million dollar  lumber industry is getting a  check-over. To determine  where research may be profitably directed toward the improvement of sawmill machinery, ' the British Columbia research council is carrying out  a four-month survey of the  equipment of British Columbia  mills. As many saw mills as  possible are being visited, and  details of machine performance  obtained from both the management and the man on the  job. The co-operation of the  equipment manufacturers has  also  been enlisted.  The survey will provide accurate figures on the frequency  of shutdowns and maintenance  costs for various type of equipment. The major causes of expense will then be the subject  of research programs to be carried out by the engineering  division of the council under R.  W. Klinck, head of the division.  SURVEY CHIEF  The survey is being conducted by Bruce Baker, a graduate  -in forest engineering of the  -University of British Columbia.  Mr. Baker has already covered  a large proportion of the mills  in the Vancouver area and is  now studying mills on Vancouver Island. Last, summer Mr.  Baker took part in a mill survey  on log .costs and marginal log  values conducted by the forest  products laboratory.  To assist in planning the details of the survey, questionnaires were sent to over one  hundred mills throughout the  province. Preparation of the  questionnaire was greatly assisted by a committee of some  In Auto Accident  HALFMOON BAY���Word was  received here of an auto accident in Hamilton, Ont., last  week, involving Mr. and Mrs.  George Cormack.  Mr. and Mrs. Cormack were  driving through downtown  Hamilton, when their car was  hit by a brewery truck which  was crossing against the light.  Mr. Cormack escaped injury  while Mrs. Cormack, unfortunately, suffered two broken ribs,  a broken pelvis, and minor injuries, which will keep her a  patient in the Hamilton General  Hospital for the next two  months.  Damage to the car was so extensive Mr. Cormack is not having it repaired and will return  home by train.  The Cormacks have been on  a three-month' holiday through  the eastern States and Canada,  and were planning their return  trip home when the accident  occurred.  m     :    . ���    -.__.  of   British   Columbia's   leading  sawmill executives.  On completion of the survey,  a report containing an analysis  of the results will be prepared  and distributed to members of  the British Columbia lumber industry.  At Brooks, Alta., The Bulletin  says: the people of the west may  protest as much as possible but  in the end they will be compelled to carry the increased  load of freight handling costs.  An annual increase of expenses,  totalling $170 million cannot be  met out of thin air.  ibsons Legion  I to Serve  As High School  GIBSONS���Legion Hall at Gibson's has been rented as a  temporary school room for high  school grades. It is hoped that  this move will take care of the  overflow of students for the  coming year.

During the war  he served with the United States  Merchant Service and is now  liying at Petersburg, Alaska.  Another recent visitor of the  Roberts was their son-in-law,  Major O. W. Potter, who has  just returned from a six month'  assignment in the Aleutians  with the U.S. army.

His advice, and his professional services, are what you  are paying for." This is part of  the advice extended by Canadian public health authorities  to parents when they take their  children for oral work.  "Leave the child to the dentist," the experts ask. "Stay in  the waiting room, unless you  are asked to remain in the inner  office, and, if you are invited in,  offer no advice nor comment to  the child unless the doctor has  previously, requested it."  Taking children to the dentist  should not be made a momentous and ominous occasion,  either. It should be treated as  a routine matter bearing directly on the child's comfort arid  health. ;  SHOP by  Powell Stores Ltd.  Powell River, B-C.  The north coast's Most Modern Department Store  Editor, Coast News.  Sir,���As the shouting and the  tumult dies ,and the important  ones depart from the opening  of the new dock it might interest your readers to bring into  print some memoirs of the early  craft that from time to time  chugged around Howe Sound.  Also, there are some highlights such as one voyage of the  "Mou Ping" from Hopkins  Landing to Vancouver that took  IV2 hours and the "Marine Express" with a small herd of  cattle up on the foredeck and  both these ventures were under  the command of the genial skipper Capt. Yates.  This writer was unfortunately unable to attend the grand  opening when perhaps the good  captain could have recounted  some of his exploits.  Some of the good ships memory recalls were SS. Belcarra,  MS. B.B., MS. Christella, MS.  Marine Express, SS. Britannia,  SS. Melmore, SS. Tartar, SS.  New Era, SS. Sechelt, SS.< Lady  Evelyn, SS. Comox.  The author made many trips  on all these boats but the trip  on the "Mou Ping" was outstanding. We left Hopkins  around dusk.v It was wintertime and raining and as I was  the only passenger, the wheel-  house was our niche.  She was an oilburner about 36  feet and. rather a primeval boiler  setup, top speed about four  knots. Aiter finding our way  to the First Narrows a very  strong, - ebb was .encountered  and "Scotty''' was entreated-for  more steam. This naturally  mean more fuel and due to the  state oi the ^ flues it was really  a vain effort.  INSPECTION  The lone / customer, being  anxious about progress, it was  necessary to have a look outside  by opening the door and standing bn deck for a few minutes  before diving for cover. After  a few trips it became evident  that no progress was being  made as Scotty's fuel was going  up the stack and coming down  mixed with rain and the resultant cosmetic effect can be better  imagined than described. I  believe Scotty met his end in  the late fracas via the torpedo  and went down with the ship.  The Marine Express carried  more varied cargo for her size  than any of the others. The  writer distinctly remembers  helping Capt. Yates parbuckle  two cows and three calves up  the side of the Express either at  Cowans Point or Paisley.  Another well remembered  ship was the SS. "New Era,"  Capt. Mortimer in command:  One trip outbound in a tiderip  at the First Narrows the writer  was handed a scoop shovel so  that we could trim the ship by  shifting' the coal. The New Era  had a constant starboard list  which always had to be remedied when any sea was' encountered.  TRAGIC END  SSv Sechelt met a: tragic end  out by Race Rocks with-quite a  loss of life. The B.B.p a small  motor vessel, was credited with  the smartest landings. A swamp  hook was slapped around a pile,  the passengers jumped and the  engineer took off and we were  away.  It is not generally known but  our Capt. Yates used to play the  accordion and on many a trip it  was   dragged; out  to  pass   the  By EARLE GRAY  MR. AND MRS A. Husdon and  family have been holidaying  in Macklin's cottage for the past  two weeks. Mrs. Husdon is the  former Margaret Mills, daughter of Mrs. A. Mills. Mrs. Husdon spent many of her childhood days at West Sechelt and  attended school here.  * *    * ' ��� "'*  This is rather a short column  this weekas yours truly is dashing off to Vancouver Island  for a quick holiday. Will be  just about back by the time this^  . is printed.  * *    *  Doug and Grace Elliott have  spent the week with their grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Elliott.  They left for Vancouver Friday  night with Mr. Elliott who is to  conduct   services   at   the   West  Vancouver Baptist Church.  * *    *  As one strolls leisurely  through West Sechelt one notices signs of much construction of houses, clearing of lots,  and other things which all point  to the growth of West Sechelt.  Mr. Clayton's property, situated beside that stretch of road  which is commonly called the  new road, shows every sign of  hard work, clearing and construction. The observant eye  sees a new roof rising among the  rich foliage of green trees. At  some future date, not too far in  the distance, we may expect to  see a new house on the premises.  We also observe a second  storey being constructed on top  of Mr, W.v Berry's picturesque  log house, "Stanehill."  r * * H:  The end of the summer draws  nigh and the holidayers start to  return home after a delightful  v a c a t i o n at West Sechelt.  Among those returning to"Vancouver after their holidays are: :  Mrs. Lower and family who  have been staying at Clevedon,  and Mr. and Mrs. Alec Warner  who have been occupying Lee ���  Side.  Arriving .here  Sunday  from  time. These off moments could  be distinguished by the odor of  boiled tea coming up the hatch.  It is grief now to wait for half  an hour but thoughtful Gibson  folk used to leave some loose  hay in the old wharf so that customers, waiting till next day  for the Comox, could take their  ease.  When the present residents  have such a choice of getting to  Vancouver it is a good thing to  hark back to days of yesteryear so that progress can be  measured. It may continue to  grow if there is good will and  pride in the place which was  one of the fine characteristics of  the men and women who first  populated the wes_t shores of  Howe Sound.

These  attempts are of varying value���  some producing what seem to  be useful effects, others obviously interfering with the freedom of the capitalist system to  get on with its job. Broadly  speaking, there is probably too  much interference at the moment, not by any means too  little."  * Let's do our part in the  world, holds the Peace River  Record-Gazette, with this editorial comment:.

HEARTENING news for parents in this district who fear  the polio menace to their children in summer travelling to  Vancouver and other Canadian  cities, is contained in the new  research project into the disease.  Designed to provide a better  understanding of how the childhood disease of poliomyelitis is  spread, this project is financed  by Canada's life insurance companies, according to an announcement by J. K. Macdonald,  chairman of the health committee of the Canadian Life Insurance, Officers Association.  The new study of dreaded  poliomyelitis will take the forrr  of a survey to be conducted by  the staff the staff of the Toronto  Hospital for Sick Children under the supervision of Dr. L. N.  Silverthorne.  Study will be made of the  early clinical evidences of poliomyelitis and of the signs of  abortive poliomyelitis as well as  an investigation into the hy-  genic conditions of homes of  patients treated during the  course of this study. Abortive  poliomyelitis is the condition  where the symptoms of the disease occur but where there is  no paralysis.

FAR FROM being "washed up"  in middle age, Canada's workers over 45 years of age are the  best bet of all to industry. This  is the finding of surveys conducted by authorities from coast  to coast, and disproves the common belief that the older worker is at a disadvantage.  Actually, surveys indicate that  the older worker is less likely  to be addicted to unnecessary  absenteeism, has greater general stability and pride in his  work, and is far less prone to  accident than the younger man  at the same type of job. And,  too, he has the advantage of experience and mature judgment.

One by  one copper mines cldsed. Finally the Cornell, wonder mine  of the coast, was shut down.  But men with mining in their  blood have inexhaustible faith  and no lack of new fields.  So it was with William  Stromberg, Jim Raper, Billy  Law and George McLeod. Early  in the summer of 1903 they embarked in a sixteen-foot row-  boat, equipped with, oars and  sail, and supplied with dried  fruit, flour and yeast and sorne  tinned goods. Their destination���Queen   Charlotte   Islands.  None of the four had ever  been so far north, but they  wished to investigate some old  copper workings of which they  had read.  When the wind was favourable they made good progress.  In Johnstone Strait the summer  headwinds were so strong that  only by exhaustive effort did  they move at all.  Nights were spent in sleeping  bags on a beach. Sometimes  stormy seas forced them to  beach for a couple or more days  at a time.  Finally Alert Bay was reached. While the men were resting before Queen Charlotte  Sound was attempted, the old  coast freighter Bosquitz came  - into port from the south. Captain Warner offered to tow the  prospectors across the sound.  Part way over a storm broke  and the four men had to go, be-  16w���"below" being the hold of  the freighter. Now the pfirici-  pal item of freight that trip was  a most unhappy bull. The more  the ship rolled the louder the  bull bellowed, and the men  clung desperately to the far side  of the hold.  Climax came when an extra.  Heavy lurch proved too much  for the rope that held the bull.  Then there was real pandemonium. The wilder roars of  the creature combined with the  desperate screams of the men  brought crew members. United  efforts of all restored the animal to its berth.  From Bonilla Island where  the men camped overnight,  they looked out onto a peaceful  Hecate Strait.

It happens every year, and  you are just as surprised each  time . . . when you discover  how Junior has grown, and the  school clothes of June won't  look at him in September. So,  with shoes, sox, pants and jackets . . . well, bang goes a pay  cheque. Shoes, the prime factor, you may get at the shoemaker, or tile large general  store, or the general hardware  store across the street. It seems  to be a matter of size. The dress  shop has undies for fall, sox and  school skirts and blouses. More  slacks and heavier wear is on  order. Luxury items, just a ,  very few nylon slips . . . but  just a few, so step on it.  Our fifteen cent store is offering sets of four cannisters . . .  in blue or red check gingham  pattern . . . reasonable price,  and large enough to be useful  100 per cent. Corn poppers,  tHbugh I can't ever get it to  come out big and fluffy as the  manufacturer does, are in again,  and remind us of Hallowe'en  already. Saw some big, but  very attractive salts and peppers, on stands ... the kind  men enjoy using ... no plugging up, and big enough to hold  more than two shakes.

CAMPBELL, assistant  superintendent of education and  chief inspector of schools, has  been appointed to the position  of director of temperance education, it was annnounced by Hon.  G. M. Weir, as the first step in  implementing the legislation on  temperance education], passed  at the last session of the legislature.  Section 17 of the Liquor Act  made provision for funds to be  expended under the direction  of the minister for a temperance education program in  schools and in young people's  groups throughout the province,  and Dr. Weir has just recently  returned from a trip to eastern  Canada where he discussed with  medical and other leaders the  features of a desirable program.  Early in September, Mr.  Campbell will visit the major  centres on this continent where  progressive programs of temperance education are developing.  BACKGROUND,  These include the headquarters of the research council on  problems of alcohol, the national  committee for education on alcoholism, the American Medical  association, the bureau of health  education, the national committee on alcohol hygiene and Yale  University School for studies in  alcoholism.  Three or four of British Columbia's best public school  teachers will be chosen to take  special courses in temperance  education so that they may  assist Mr. Campbell.  wool blankets are on display, as  well as some of the new finish  cotton ones.

You never hear a hen cackle  until she's finished her job.  . INTRODUCTIONS have always  given people trouble ^and  Canadians are no exceptions.  Perhaps some day we'll all wear  our names written on our brows  in Neon lights to be flashed on  and off at will and then the  problem will be solved.  Meanwhile, we struggle on  trying to remember people's  names and fumbling to shake  hands, but even with these difficulties, our Canadian way of  salutation is much easier than in  some other countries.  People in the Fregian Islands  jump up and down, hug and pat  each other when introduced. In  the Andamans, when two people  meet they blow into each.  other's hands. The Ainus of  Japan rub palms together. Some  Negroes of Africa snap their  fingers when meeting. In the  Banks Islands, they really overdo it . . . two men meeting lock  the middle fingers of their right  ��� hands together and pull until  they crack the knuckles! These  are just a few of the many  ways of greeting, when a body  meets a body*  In Canada there's the vegy  simple business . of shaking  hands and the hardest part of  the introduction is to remember  who to introduce to whom. This  probably puzzles more people  than any other rule of etiquette.  There are two basic rules.  First . . .you introduce man to  woman and, even if the man is  elderly and the girl young, you  should still do it this way: "Miss  Jones, I'd like to introduce Mr.  Smith."  Of course, there is always  the exception to the rule, If the  man is a dignitary of the  church, then the woman is introduced to him because the  church is above all. When you  get into royal circles, the same  rule holds good . . . a woman  is, of course, always presented  to   royalty.     In   Canada,   that  means a woman is introduced  to. the governor-general or the  Lieutenant-governor, in their  official capacity, as representative of the King. In the social  swim of some countries, women  are also introduced to men of  title, but we don't hold much  with that practice in our democratic country.  Another basic rule of introductions���when two people are  of the same sex, the younger is  introduced to the older. But  you can solve the whole problem of introductions very easily  and correctly if you remember  to mention the name of the more  distinguished or older person  first. This way: "Mrs. Roosevelt ... Miss Hill."  Here's a pointer on politeness.  When   introducing  two   people  you never say, "Helen, I want  you to meet my friend, Mary."  It is not good form to imply one  means   more  to  you  than  the  other.    Perhaps  she   does,  but  you don't say so out loud.  *    *    *  Dipping into the mailbag, a  reader, Miss E. V., writes: "My  mother always taught us that it  is bad form to butter a piece of  bread or roll while holding it in  the hand. But so often I see  people in restaurants doing that.  Isn't it bad manners?"  Answer: 'Tisn't good! Correct way is to break the bread    Friday, August 29< 1947  or roll into pieces, butter one  nnnnnn     piece at a time, holding it on  31111010   the plate as y��u do so- Eat that  ^      buttered piece of bread before  you butter another. Another  thing to be avoided is cutting  the bread or roll with a knife;  it should be broken with the  fingers.  Readers are invited to write  Claire WaUace about their etiquette problems.

They  just take meals as a chore or a  habit, not the important health-  function it should be.  Nutrition.experts wonder why  more people aren't sick with  such general disregard for food  values and little conscious effort  to eat for health. They urge a  close study of the relation of  food to physical and mental  well-being, and point out that  scientific advice \ and information in this field is available  from any health department, as  well as in free literature obtainable from provincial and local  health units.

Vancouver outdoor  enthusiasts, George Smith and Maurice Baker, are snapped  as they set out from Westview beach Wednesday morning.  The trip south to Horseshoe Bay took three hours longer  than their northbound journey. Rowing time on the return  trip was^914 hours, as compared with 26Vt. hours coming up.  , They report the trek back brought less favorable tides  and opposing winds. They camped Wednesday night at  Middle Point, eight miles east of Pender Harbour, and Thursday night made camp at Roberts Creek. Friday they lunched  on the eastern tip of Keats Island and then battled a stiff  south-east breeze for the fast 90 minutes of the trip, from  the northern tip of Bowen Island across to Horseshoe Bay.  George Smith is the nephew of Mrs. Jack Clarke of  Westview and the pair decided to visit her by rowboat last  week.   They found the 160-mile voyage "invigorating".  grand' evening was spent in  playing games, then she was  presented with a cribfule of  beautiful "little things." Lucky  gal. Those present were Lil  Mounsey, M. A. Johnson, Kitty  Adams, Edith Fleming, Vi Alexander, Pearl Souster, N. Ackers,  N. Adamson, Mrs. T. Hubbard  and Nettie Hamilton.

Poet's Corner  Our Mom  * By Victoria Serstad  Mom sits alone so quiet and  still,  With thoughts of a dear one o'er  yonder hill.  She wipes away the tears with a  trembling hand,  As she remembers sons and  daughters in a foreign  land.  Mom's thoughts drift back to  the time when to bed the  little ones she'd tuck,  And to her bosom the loved ones  she could press;  How sweetly they returned her  loving caress.  She remembers the day���she  said farewell children,  Farewell and good luck!  Now Mom's tears find fresh  release,  As our picture, but not ourselves she sees.  So with tears in her eyes, and a  quavering voice,  Mom asks Qod's blessing, for  her girls and boys.

Halfmoon gay, B. C.  by Jock Scott  The Races  USED TO have an Uncle Clem  who followed the ponies,  wearing a white suit of coveralls, but there's never been any  racing blood in our family. Until last week, in fact, my Uncle  Clem was the only Scott who  ever made a living from the  horses. He used to clean up  every day.  My own visits to the tracks  have been few and far between,  mainly because they are always  built so far from the city. I  never minded the taxi ride out.  It was always the long walk  back.  Horse racing is on the lunatic  fringe anyway. It consists mainly of large, clammy mobs of  worried-looking people studying the fine print in complicated  charts, standing in long queues,  eating embalmed hot dogs and  shoving each other about with  dainty curses.  THE INCIDENTALS  The horses themselves have  very little to do with these goings-on. They appear occasionally, sprint briskly around the  oval, and then retire to the  steaming tranquility of their  barns. It's all over in a minute  and a half, or just about the  running time of a well-planned  bank holdup.  The main attraction is a kind  of mass hypnotism in which one  may enjoy the exhilaration of a  raised blood pressure, heart palpitations, cold sweats, acute in- .  digestion, pulsing temples, spots  before the eyes and sometimes  drop dead. This is expensive,  and may even have a direct link  With the mortality charts. But  fascinating just the same.  The physical torture which  the sport entails may discourage  a few of its followers, but in the  life of every fan there comes a  day when he "beats the ponies."  Flying saucers are seen in the  air, the sun sinks in the west,  and frorti that day on the poor  fellow is never the same.  FLOAT JOB  Recently it happened to me,  I beat the races and floated  away from the track (four feet  about the ground) with more  money than I had taken in.  I have been trying to do this  off  and on  for  several  years,  TYPEWRITERS  For Sale or Rent  m  Remington Rand Office  Equipment  LES PETERSON  Gibsons  investing large sums of money  in the writings of gentlemen  who have wasted a lifetime  studying the perverse eccentricities of horses, and even, on  one occasion, consulting a well-  recommended ouija board.  Words of this accomplishment  seems to have spread among my  friends, possibly because I have  talked of nothing else for the  past week. A remarkable  change has come in our relationship. Short of becoming a  supreme court judge or having  an apartment for rent there's  nothing like winning at the  races to make you a man of distinction.  On all sides eager voices have  been asking me for my system,  or, failing that, a good thing in  the fourth today. To a man  who has kissed so many two-  dollar bills a fond goodbye this  is a sweet reward. Given any  encouragement at all I will buy  a pearl grey hat, shove a toothpick in my mouth and start  making book.  So far only one man is fully  aware of the system which paid  off for me that day. He, himself, is a student of every conceivable kind of literature on  racing. When he places a bet  he is aware of the lineage of  his horse for seven generations,  knows the private life of the  jockey and considers every  possible influence on the race,  including wind velocity. He  loses heavily.  At the end of the third race  one day last week this fellow  was busy tearing up his ticket  when I announced, as casually  as possible, that I had picked  the winner on the nose. The  horse was named Saloptic and  paid a nice $43.50.  ������" The man gave me a look  filled with awe and respect.  How had I done it?  "Well," I said, " 'Saloptic'  just looked to me like the kind  of name I would read at the  head of a form chart."  The respect faded from his  eyes.  DOING THE SCAN SCAN  The system is briefly this:  You scan and memorize the  names of the horses in the race,  ignoring past performances,  weight and other useless information. Then you close the eyes  and concentrate. The names  spin about in confusion and  settle nicely into a one-two-  three order. A little form chart  pops into your mind. You then  hurry down to the two-dollar  wicket and place your bet.  I have not yet thought of a  name for this. It involves a  little Yogi, I think, a certain degree of omniscience and a blind  faith.  "Crazy," said my expert  friend. "Just like my wife." His  wife was not on hand to hear  this. She was at the pay wicket  waiting for her $43.50.  I pass this system along with  some misgivings. It has not-  stood the test of time, unless you  are willing to accept the evidence of five out of eight races.  Personally, I am almost pathetically willing to accept this  evidence. This very afternoon  I will be putting it to the test,  full of idiot confidence;  SEA BUS  LINES LTD.  GIBSONS, B.C.  SEPTEMBER   SCHEDULE  Effective Sept. 2nd.  LEAVES GIBSONS AND GRANTHAMS LDG.

A  co-operative organization, it  has obtained governmental  sanction from all countries to  which it sends packages.  Non-profit   in   its   operation,  CARE (co-operative for American      remittances)    guarantees  delivery   or   refunds   the   pur-  - chaser's money.  Powell River residents who  have been discouraged by postal  limitations imposed by both the  Canadian and British governments, can now have the whole  complicated procedure taken  out of their hands. A remittance of $10 will provide friends  or relatives in Britain with 21.37  pounds of food. The purchaser  has only tb supply the name  and address of the recipient,  with $10 plus five cents to cover  exchange into American currency, and the rest is done by  CARE.  CONTENTS  Contents of the food parcel  consist of 1 lb. braised beef, 1  lb. liver loaf, 12 oz. luncheon  meat, 2 lb. shortening, 2 lb.  sugar, 1 lb. apricots, 1 lb. prunes,  7 lb. flour, 2 lb. chocolate, 2 lb.  dry white milk powder, 8 oz. dry  egg powder, 6 oz. soap, rA oz.  yeast. Food value of this parcel is 40,963 calories. CARE  packs and sends it, with the  guarantee that after 120 days,  if delivery is impossible, the $10  will be refunded.  The contents of CARE food  packages were chosen after a  careful survey of conditions in  Europe and the foods "most  needed there. In addition to  Britain, it may be mailed to  Austria, Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Finland, France, Greece,  Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Germany (the American,  British and French zones and  all of Berlin).  CARE has signed agreements  with the governments of these  territories permitting packages  to enter free of all duty, tax and  ration regulations.  There is also a blanket package, containing two all-virgin  wool blankets for $10, but only  the food package can be sent to  Britain.
