AT THE request of the foreign  exchange control board in  Ottawa,. the R.C.M.P.. have commenced a country-wide check of  the way in which storekeepers,  .service stations, hotels and  others are handling .U.S. = currency received from tourists.  The U.S. dollar expenditures  of tourists in Canada are one of  . the main sources of the foreign  exchange needed to pay for  Canadian imports and other  normal expenditures *��� in the  United States.   So that the U.S.  \ dollars spent by tourists will be  available for these purposes, the  foreign exchange control regulations require that Canadian  merchantsand others turn the  US: currency they receive into  their banks, y^ *  K^PIlfG DOLLARS  Officials^ of. fthey jbparid   said  that reports 5 they fe^ |pj_|c^ived  indicate that  many ^merjetiarits;  are   not "turning in their U.S.  dollar ^receipts but are paying  them out freely in change and  Jin some cases are selling them  to members of the public in ex-  ichange 4or Canadian/currency.  ; |   This has led to the check-up  [now   being   made   and * where  .breaches of the regulations are  jjfound,   prosecutions   under  the  IjForeign .Exchange ^Control Act  will Ibe commenced.

RENNIE  THE BIG day of the season for  Granthams Landing has come  and gone and another regatta is  now a matter of history. But it  is one that Will be feemembered  by all who took-part in it, as  well as the spectators. From  beginning to end it was such a  happy day. After the rain on  Friday the air and the -sky were  washed clean of dust and clouds,  and the trees looked so green,  and' gardens were all "perked  up" after a good soaking.  There was just enough breeze  to keep the flags and bunting  fluttering that were decorating  the wharf and the diving tower.  The mountains also seemed to  stand out at their b6st, completing a picture of exquisite  beauty. ��� A soul satisfying view  |ndeed.  Music was supplied by the  good ship Ted-lo, to accompany  the community singing which  made a fine start to a very  happy, afternoon. 5 The events  were run off in a fine enthusiastic manner. Watching the  healthy yo;ung folk diving and  swhnming so fearlessly made  this observer wish that she  were young again.     ^  A special vote of thanks is in  order to the several committees,  for their help in making they  regatta^ sucfcy ay y success. They  have-worked Iphg arid hard for  manyyweeics in preparation for  the regatta.  Also a special vote of thanks  should be given to Messrs Poole,  Walsh, and Carr for the fine entertainment they gave during  the afternoon, and also on the  diving float at the' community  beach during the evening entertainment.

There were approximately a 100 people present. By 8 p.m., when the picnic  ended, everyone had that tired  but satisfied feeling that comes  after an active day of relaxation.  It was through the efforts of  Deacon Elliott, leader of St.  John's Church, that this picnic  was held. His sincere and  earnest efforts are appreciated  by all who attended.

She was  attended by Miss Florence Nel-  ?son�� ^KtTi^^  sUit of Alice blue with pink and  white carnations. The groom  was supported by Lloyd Jackson, his uncle.  A reception was held at the  Commodore Cabaret, where the  bride's mother received in a  pearl grey tailored suit, with  black picture hat and cerise  accessories. The g r o o m's  mother chose a silk-flowered  dress with small floral hat and  white accessories.  After a short wedding trip,  the bride and groom will make  their home at Selma Park.  Gibsons Visitor  Travels by Canoe  GIBSONS���One visitor at least  to this port has not permitted  the days of primitive transportation to become legend. He is  Lewis Reid, formerly of Gibsons, and now living in Vancouver. Last summer Lewis made  his appearance here in a neat  little speedboat, but this time he  is doing the trip in what he  terms the "hard way." Enthusiasts have rowed the distance  from the city to here during the  past few years, but there is little  doubt that Lewis is the first in  many moons to have traversed  it by paddle in a canoe. Maybe  the spiritf if not the atmosphere,  of the pioneer still exists.  zwmix Poge Two  THE COAST NEWS, Hatfmoon Bay, B. C.

They were accompanied by members of their  family, chief of which was Mrs.  Metcalfe's mother, Mrs. Boyd,  who left Prestwick, Scotland,  on her 69th birthday, June 5,  and arrived at Sea Island airport on June 7. There she was  met by the daughters she Had  not seen for many years, their  husbands whom she had never  seen and seven grandchildren  ranging in age from a dark-eyed  lad of 20, now a student at  U.B.C., to a pig-tailed little lass  of nine.

HoSfmoen Boy, B. C,  Pege Three  LARGER supplies of United  Kingdom fabrics and fashions  are to be sent overseas. The  decision to raise the export  quota of the United Kingdom  textile industry was announced  in parliament recently by Mr.  Dalton, chancellor of the exchequer.  It is part of a plan to reduce  Britain's adverse balance of  payments, and, since it is directed primarily at the hard currency areas,' should help to  bring in badly needed dollars.  It is hoped to achieve a new  expansion in textile shipments  throught increased production  ahd not at the expense of the  home market, which is alreadv  strictly rationed for all forms of  clothing. This means that the  manufacturers will be able to  concentrate still more closely on  their specialized lines for overseas markets, on Harris tweeds,  fine cottons and woollens which  already have a world, reputation.

By Florence Eleanor Brewis  Halfmoon Bay, B.C.  As  might  a  wise  and  ancient  patriarch  Maitain his knowing silence  midst the chattering of  youth,  So stands the spar tree ...  That weather-beaten Douglas  fir that soars  To  awesome height above the  murmuring alders.  He cares not that they gossip  of his age,  Nor that they marvel at hys  bulk ... his gradelessness;  Devoid of leaf and branch he  meditates  Upon the glory of departed  years;  From seedling time to prime  magnificence  Lord of the forest. . . sovereign  unsurpassed;  The vast experience of growth  and strength ...  The triumph . . . and the  tragedy.  He was glad they chose him as  the best  Of all his fellows,  Although he paid so dearly for  the place,  Still he remained supreme,  whilst round about  The lesser monarchs fell.  Ah, fruitless pride!.. Commanding no reward  Save bitter memories; .'. . there  came the day  He found himself alone . . .  Shorn of his beauty and his  regal court,  No longer to be named the  kingly fir . . .  They called him just . . . the  spar tree.  Thus he awaits in voiceless  solitude,  The dawning of -but one ��� more  golden day,  When  he shall  lie against the  earthy breast  From whence he came . . .  And murmuring alder trees  shall weep  Their leafy tears ori his last  resting-place.  DISPLACED PERSONS  FOR WOODS WORK  HON. Humphrey Mitchell, minister of labor, announced that  all arrangements have been  completed for the employment  of the 725 woods workers from  the displaced persons' camps in  Germany, who arrived in Halifax recently.  These men, who volunteered  to come to Canada to help meet  a shortage of woods workers  here, travelled by special trains  tb woods operations in Northern Ontario. About half of  them will be employed in the  Port Arthur district, and the-  remainder north of Sault Ste.  Marie. These men will be  housed in existing woods camps:  which are being inspected to  insure that living conditions  are satisfactory. .They will receive the going wages and will  be employed /under the same  general conditions as regular  Canadian woodsmen.

Mrs. Nickson is honorary president of the Canadian  Legion W.A. and well beloved  by all the veterans in both the  branch and W.A. So we hope  this will not be a long illness as  we want to see her back with  us as soon as possible.  *    *    *  Speaking of falls, Mrs. Gibson, staying with Mrs. French  for the summer, had a bad one  when she fell down the step in  front of the Union Store recently, she was called out later to  nurse Mrs. Power which did  not improve matters any and  now had to go in for a check-up  at Shaughnessy. Hope she will  be back1 soon. Rather spoils  ones holiday when these things  happen.  STORK ARRIVES  So Mrs. Fred Mills (Doreen)  has gone to Vancouver to await  arrival of the stork. Why  doesn't someone tell me these  things? Here am I with my  nice lacy baby garments all  crocheted and lo, the bird has  flown as it were. Well I shall  just have to hand them over to  Fred. I daresay he has lots to  take to town when he goes. Oh,  oh, hold everything, phone has  just been ringing and what do  you know, it was Fred and he  has a little daughter. It seemed  so funny as I was just working  on this column. So we are all  very happy for Fred and Doreen.

I wonder that more  people do not take up library  work���to me books are the most  fascinating of subjects.

The other friend is none other  than Mrs. Fred Patterson, who  was president of our local Red  Cross  when  she  lived here   a  few years back.    Her husband  was  the  school principal  here  and passed away very suddenly.  We all missed them very much  and were very sorry when Mrs.  Patterson    decided     to    leave  Sechelt; however it is nice to  know that we must still occupy  a warm spot in her heart when  she will come up for a visit.

At 8 o'clock in the evening a  large number of spectators  gathered at the beach where a  bonfire was lit to witness the  canoe race, the rowboat race  and the raft race. Presentation  was made of the cups won by  the contestants during the day.  DIVING CUP  The crowd gave.a lusty cheer  when they heard that Granthams Landing had made the  highest aggregate and that Don  Poole had won the David Spencer cup for fancy divers. There  was no mistake about his winning the cup. His diving was  very clever and a delight to see.  Before the presentation of the  cups the clowns entertained the  spectators with a funny skit, "A  Mock Operation." After the  "operating surgeon," Steve Carr,  arrived.: with several garden  tools and saws he proceeded to  remove numerous cans arid  yards of tape. When the "patient" was fixed to their liking  he was thrown into the sea and  all the others fell in to finish  the stunt. Coffee and hot dogs  and buns were served to the  crowd and all enjoyed a very  happy evening.  We had almost forgotten to  mention the fine display of surf  riding by Harry Johnston, with  Mr. Turner of the guest house  pulling him with his speed boat.  It was thrilling to watch them.  As the sun was setting a canoe  from the boys' camp sailed past  and gave a display of paddling  which was perfect. Altogether  it was a very happy day.  After the older folk went  home the young people finished  the evening with a sing-song  and dancing on the wharf,  bringing to a close a day to be  remembered in their holiday  lives at Granthams Landing.

These,   being  moderately   high  at the neck, with some elaboration of the skirt, not to speak  of the varied length of sleeve,  can   be   used   later   for   their  original   purpose   or   for   very;  formal outdoor occasions.

At 8 o'clock in the evening a  large number of spectators  gathered at the beach where a  bonfire was lit to witness the  canoe race, the rowboat race  and the raft race. Presentation  was made of the cups won by  the contestants during the day.  DIVING CUP  The crowd gave.a lusty cheer  when they heard that Granthams Landing had made the  highest aggregate and that Don  Poole had won the David Spencer cup for fancy divers. There  was no mistake about his winning the cup. His diving was  very clever and a delight to see.  Before the presentation of the  cups the clowns entertained the  spectators with a funny skit, "A  Mock Operation." After the  "operating surgeon," Steve Carr,  arrived, with several garden  tools and saws he proceeded to  remove numerous cans ahd  yards of tape. When the "patient" was fixed to their liking  he was thrown into the sea and  all the others fell in to finish  the stunt. Coffee and hot dogs  and buns were served to the  crowd and all enjoyed a very  happy evening.  We had almost forgotten to  mention the fine display of surf  riding by Harry Johnston, with  Mr. Turner of the guest house  pulling him with his speed boat.  It was thrilling to watch them.  As the sun was setting a canoe  from the boys' camp sailed past  and gave a display of paddling  which was perfect. Altogether  it was a very happy day.  After the older folk went  home the young people finished  the evening with a sing-song  and dancing on the wharf,  bringing to a close a day to be  remembered in their holiday  lives at Granthams Landing.  r  SELMA PARK  General Store  and  Post Office  Groceries, Hardware  ��� Softdrinks,  Magazines  Fresh Fruits and Vegetables  FRED WILLOWS  Proprietor  I  GIBSONS LANDING  Beasley's  General  Merchants  We Have a Good  Selection of  _���  Supersilk  Hosiery  Leckie's Work  Boots  and Scampers  Standard Oil Products  !

By LES PETERSON  A VISITOR whom many of the  some-time^ago students of  the Gibsons Landing School will  recognize and remember, is  spending a few days with her  sister-in-law, Mrs. Anne Burns,  of Gibsons.  She is Mrs. Marvin Kullander, formerly Jessie Ades, who.  taught school here for several  years during the 1930's.  Duririg her teaching years  here, Jessie was instrumental in  promoting basketball in the  school and in bringing it to a  high degree of skill among the  students.

HARBOUR GROWTH  Despite the late opening of  the new wharf, and the hesitancy of the weather to settle  down to summer conditions,  there is more activity at the  waterfront here than at any  other time in the way of summer visitors. If anything, boats  are less noticeable this summer  than during former years, but  they are here nevertheless.  In years past a relatively  small number of craft crowded  about the wharf and in the bay  loomed large. Now, a considerably larger number, scattered  from the Headlands all the way  past Granthams does not seem  so many from any point along  the way. Only by viewing the  fleet from either end can the  true .perspective be seen, It  then becomes apparent that the  entire waterway from Soames  Point to the Headlands is one  large bay, and that now the enr  tire length, rather than a few  isolated pockets along the way,  4s -filled with 4ied* and anchored  craft.

This is your new  correspondence writer, "Nettie." I don't know if I can  keep you as well posted on news  as Creighton Hawkshaw did but  I will do my best and will  gladly  accept   any  news   from  anyone.   So, how about it, folk?  * ���    *  Well Creighton Hawkshaw  left Britannia Beach Friday  morning on his way to his new  position at Trail with the Canadian Legion. He will be missed  and we wish him the very best  of luck and health. By health  I mean I hope he hasn't taken  the mumps to Trail with him  from his son Dickie. He looked  ... like a proud father strutting up  to the boat, with a beautiful  black leather brief case that  was presented to him Thursday  night by the local branch of  the Canadian Legion. It was a  beauty and was he surprised.  Then his wife, Ivy, was surprised. On Friday night we,  Olive, Grace, Ivy and myself  had our usual Friday night  "mah-jong" club at my house,  then came a knock at the door,  some one for Ivy, and there  stood 15 of her friends. I won't  say what she did but you can  imagine.  The evening was spent in  playing games, etc., and believe  it or not I never knew we had  so many professional artists?  Many won lovely prizes. The  eats as usual were grand. Says  Ivy, "Oh Nettie, when did you  bake all this?" seeing that she  is in to bother me every 10 minutes, but I fooled her and let  the other four hostesses do most  of it, Olive Baxter, Grace Kennedy, Doris Looyen, Lil Mounsey.  We presented her with a  beautiful gold glamour pin of a  Chinese coolie set with blue  stones. It sure was a wow, also  a pair of lovely slippers and a  lovely card with the following  names: Dorothy Carter, Honey  Haemes, Alice Fitzpatrick, Margaret Dunster, Sue Settle,  Gladys Vah Cysnsburger, Jean  Edwards, Dot Noble, Flo Ver-  desia, Mrs. Johnson, Agnes McDonald, Elsie Balderson, Helen  Hill, Lil Mounsey, Doris Looyen,  Grace  Kennedy,  Olive  Baxter,  Nettie Hamilton.

Youngest swimmer was a  wee miss of 6, Mary Walsh, who  stole the show with her fine  "crawl" that she has adopted  from the porpoise.  GIRLS' RACES  Girls' races were fast, and the  12 and 13-year-olds merited the  special praise of chairman  Bruce Fletcher.  The older girls did not jump  to conclusions, after a fashion,  when they got off to a false  start. Many had gone three-  quarters of the course before  they were stopped. The men's  entry, a swimming medley, gave  an excellent display of vigorous  swimming, with style sacrificed  for speed.  A girl copped the "plunge for  distance," an open event. . . .  Miss Pamela McGlashan made  approximately 15 yards in her  underwater dive from* a standing take-off.  Relay races created the most  excited cheering, with Granthams making a fine showing. A  new relay, the Sunday school  relay, was carried out and the  girls' team from Keats Island  took the race, but not the cup.

Diving was confined to competition between boys and men,  and the display was excellent,  with several entries requiring a  keen eye to judge who had the  "edge."  FANCY DIVING  An exhibition of fancy diving  was given by Carl Bailey, whose  difficult one and one-half twist  earned enthusiastic applause.  Sun tanners, all sizes and  ages, from a two-year-old toddler to John . Corlett, retired  chairman of the village board  of commissioners at Gibsons,  competed. The. 79-year-young  man won that contest hands  , down when he displayed his  mahogany back. However since  he has had more time than his  competitors to acquire it, he was  given only a consolation prize  of an ice cream bar.  Highest aggregate score for  the contesting communities was  won by Granthams with 92 2%,  with Hopkins, 84*��, Gibsons  WVz, Keats 39, and Soames Pt.,  35.
