Oldershaw of/ Roberts Creek, was united in marriage tb* Herbert Berdahl,  youngest son of Mr$. Peter.Berdahl and the late Peter Berdahl  of Gibsons. Both the bride and  groom were born in Gibsons and  have spent nearly all their lives  on the Sechelt peninsula. They  expect to live at Gibsons.  Ten per cent of the city homes  in the United States lack bathtubs, 50 per cent of village  homes and 90 per cent of farm  homes. *  GIBSONS ��� Proposals for formation of a water board to  serve the peninsula area from  Roberts Creek to Hopkins  Landing arid Gower sPoint are  under discussion here.  Roberts Creek, planning its  own water board and a $35,000  scheme to service homes in that  section, already has water  rights on Mission Creek and  Bowes Creek. But it "is willing  to join the larger project when  arid if formed.  EXPENSIVE  Robert Burns, village clerk at  Gibsons, explained the general  scheme. He informed delegates  it would be costly and would  require a great deal of time and  study. An engineer's services  would be needed.  Board of trade; d#Eej��a tes;  offered to carry oh1 with! their  committee and to contact interested individuals and organizations. Dr. Allan Inglis, sanitary  inspector, said that from a sanitation point of #view a water  board was a definite necessity  for the entire district.

Secret  Guest  ove vjsuest dook is  Biggest Registry in World  v^VJ :-* -----  SECRET   Cove   boasts   the  world's biggest  "guest register," says Will Dawson in the  Vancouver Daily Province.  "You register with a ladder  and a paint brush on the biggest  guest book in the world���a high,  smooth rock bluff that slopes  steeply into the water at Secret  Cove," he continues.  Those who have sought shelter in Secret Cove, which lies 35  miles north of Vancouver in the  lee of Turnagain Island, have  left a record on the rock wall.  Upon it, in seemingly inaccessible places, names are printed  ���names of men and ships that  sought shelter from the tumultuous sea. There are Grace and  Jimmy; SS. Cuprum; Victory  3rd; Norvan; MV. Celnor, May  1942; George Bay, Capt. G.  Page; Viviana; Catala Chief,  1945; SS. Glenbor, Mar. 11^1923;  and many others.  Some sea-going artist who  shipped aboard the Stanifast in  1939 registered his ship's name  and date of visit on that guest  book rock with orange lettering  against a red background, and  trimmed it off with two crossed  anchors. Oldest visible name is  Naninri, July 19^19.;  That inde-  here. He chose a higii point ancT  noisy yellow paint.  UNUSUAL PEOPLE  Meet the people on Turnagain  Island.

Discusses Repairs  REGULAR meeting of Roberts  Creek Improvement Association was held at the Community  Hall, Tuesday, July 22.  -.. An interesting item of correspondence was a letter from  Mr. James Sinclair, M.P., in  which he referred to a meeting  with members of the executive  committee last fall to discuss,  among other matters, the need  for repairs to the wharf. Mr.  Sinclair wrote' that he had  secured an appropriation for  this work which would be begun at the end of the summer  season.  Discussion of improvements  to Elphinstone Park occupied  much of the evening. Equipment for heating water is one  objective for the ensuing  months. The entertainment  committee was asked to put on  a dance, or other entertainment,  in the interest of park development.  It was resolved to take up  with the Public Utilities Commission the frequent discrepancy between the actual and  scheduled time of arrival of  steamships.  Owing to the hour, consideration of; the Pound Law was  postponed until the next meeting, August 19.  Application for membership  may be made at any time to the  secretary, W. J. L. Raymer.  Mrs. Ramsay was one of the  originals of the June Roper  School of Dancing and make-up  artist of Theatre Under the  Stars, Little Theatre, and University Players.  The Ramsays are taking up  where pioneer Carl Larsen left  off. Larsen settled with his  family 20 years ago on Turn-  again Island and, according to  local report, literally carved a  homesite out of the rock. After  falling and bucking trees he  built fires on and around the  biggest rocks. When they were  good and hot he doused them  with water. The rocks split.  Later he wheeled cumulatively  tons of earth from adjacent  parts to this flattened place and  finally created a smooth, productive spot.  Mystery Island is Jervis  Island, off the east coast of Las-  quiti Island. At the northwest  corner where a tiny islet gives  natural protection to a small  bay, two deserted houses perch  on a steep grassy slope.  Commerce Dept.  Study of Russia  THE USE of Russian as one of  the major tongiies in world  commercial practise is forecast  by a recommendation made to  students by the department of  commerce at U.B.C. in the 1947-  48 calendar.  "The growing political and industrial importance of the Slavonic bloc presages a high commercial importance for the Russian languages," the recommendation declares.  Students working towards a  degree in commerce have the  option of studying a language  throughout the final four years  of their course, in place of mathematics and statistics. The  department of commerce recommends that some give serious  consideration to the study of  Russian as their language for  the four years.  Subjects related to Russian  are also recommended, and  students electing the language  will be expected to take as  many courses as possible in it.  Russian should not be chosen  unless the student has already  shown himself good at foreign  languages: an average of 65 per  cent or better is recommended.  0 % VIHOXOIA  immaxa ivioHiAOHd Page Two.

Over forty thousand workers  in this Province, and their families, are directly  dependent on the forest industries for employment  and many'additional thousands are indirectly  affected. No other industry in British Columbia  could absorb this body of workers, should the  forest industries cease to exist. They and their  families would perforce have to migrate elsewhere.  The B.C.

By LES PETERSON  OLD-TIMER  An old-time resident of this  community has returned to re^  tire here after an absence of  nearly 40 years. He is Wilfred  Dougall, Boer War veteran,  who came to B.C. in 1902. In  1905 he moved to Gibsons,  where his brother George had  made his home. The property  owned by George Dougall was  the whole of district -lot 685,  with his home located where E.  J. Atlee lives now. The cost  of the entire quarter-section  was less than the value of one  acre of much of the property  today. Wilfred Dougall staked  a 60-acre plot on the north eiid  of Keats Island, and in 1908  returned east to Montreal. This  is his first trip back here since  that time.   .,  *    *_*'''������  Still another road has been  added to the outskirts of this  village. Built in practically  nothing flat by; the Williams  Construction bulldozer, it runs  directly in front of the Penta-  costal Tabernacle, joining the  Fletcher road above the home  of W. B. Boucher. There are  now eight parallel streets and  lanes between the waterfront  and the school.  CRICKETER  Robin Johnston, newly in  charge of the Gibsons branch  of the Bank of Montreal, is a  better - than - average cricket  player as well as a banker. He  will, in the near future, fly to  Toronto with the B.C. cricket  team to compete in the inter-  provincial championships being  staged there August 4 to 9. The  purpose of the competition is to  rehabilitate cricket, which suffered an almost total eclipse  during the war years through  the heavy enlistment of players.

CASH AND OTHER  VALUABLES  THE recent robbery at Sechelt  should  serve  as  a lesson to  everybody to keep their cash on  hand in and around the house  at a minimum. This also applies to all documents of value  such as Bonds, Life Insurance  Policies, Titles, et cetera, and  in fact anything the loss of  which either by fire or theft  would entail not only a monetary loss but much inconvenience. All spare cash should be  placed in either a Current or  Savings account at a Bank and  all valuable documents should  be left with them for safekeeping.  The Bank of Montreal; Carrall and Hastings Street Branch,  operates a Sub-Agency at Gibsons every Tuesday and Friday.  They will be glad to open an  account for you arid to take  care of your valuable docu-  ments, ��� et cetera, in their /vaults;  at Carrall and Hastings. A receipt for these will be given at  Gibsons and, when needed, they  will be brought up from Carrall  and Hastings. The charge for  such services is very reasonable.  It makes for peace of mind to  have such evidence of value in  a safe place, free of the risk of  fire and theft.

GIBSONS ��� Plans are going  ahead for the official opening of the new Gibsons wharf,  scheduled to take place August  A16. Dominion, and possibly provincial officials will be present,  and two of the oldest residents  of the community, James Fletcher, who came here in 1887, and  "Chuck" Wyngarden, son-in-  law of George Gibson, founder  of the settlement.  A Canadian Legion Band  from Vancouver is expected to  provide music for the occasion,  and an interesting feature of the  full program is to be added by  the presence of Gibsons' first  queen, who is to be chosen by  popular acclaim prior to the  opening.  ���inspection is invited later���no  crowbars please.  *   *   *  Prutt saw Ernie King just  back from a successful tour  with his band.

M.   Lewis,  chairman of the Canadian Pulp  and Paper Association.   By far  the greater of these destroyers  is insects.   They take an annual  toll of 401,000,000 board feet of  standing   timber.     The  annual  depletion by  fire  is  less  than  300,000,000   board   feet.     Leaf  eating insects like the hemlock  looper and the spruce bud worm  lay waste to thousands of acres  of forest in the coast areas. Bark  beetles  destroy  huge  areas  of  the pine species in the interior.  In some cases these ravages extend over hundreds of miles.  "STEPS IMPERATIVE"  Now that British Columbia's  forest lands have been placed  on a basis of sustained yield  management it is more imperative than ever that steps be  taken to prevent and adequately  combat this costly depletion of  our forest resources.

"In this regard it  is apparent the firs$ step for  more efficient insect control in  our forests is the establishment  of a Dominion entomological  station in British Columbia. In  this respect eastern Canada is  well equipped yet in spite of  the steady expansion of the  forest industries in this province  the Dominion government has  not yet seen fit to take such  control and preventative measures," he concluded.
