I think I have a  large   streak   of   ham   in   me  somewhere.  Every time I go to a movie 1  emerge mentally in the character of the leading male star.  The.illusion sometimes lasts as  long as an hour or two, wearing off gradually until I am  finally back to sub-normal.  This unconsciously imitative  urge is almost overpowering.  While I limit my movie-going,  there's hardly a week goes by  GIBSONS  By LES PETERSON  WE ARE served here by two oil  - companies, now, and very neat  and ;smart looking they are.  The Shell station, Joe Schutz  in charge, has had a new paint  job,.and has resumed marine  service on the public wharf.

The marvelous 18 hours in  the air aboard the United Air  Lines transport travelling at an  elevation of 5,000 feet'and 300  miles per hour was something  to remember.  She made, the usual -tourist's  tours such as visiting the popular Jinny Simms show at the  Starlight Roof in the Waldorf-  Astoria, the famous "Oklahoma show which has.been running for five years with the  original cast.  Went through Radio City and  personally " appeared on Television ��� wasn't a bit nervous  and saw her voice on the air  which resembled spaghetti!  Saw the Eddie Duchin Show  which was not nearly as exciting as listening over the radio.  Tried on hats at Lille Dache  Studio���gorgeous creations that  woman brazens out with to  raise the ice of her spouse. Do  you remember the red velvet  chapeaux on the August Vogue?

I lose more friends  that way. ' r    -/ ," -  Fact is, I'm usually^a long  way off in my impression of the  stars, and people generally just  pass off my "queer ' spells'' as  sinus trouble. Little'do they  know that beneatfit this: drab  front there exists the "suave" aifd  . poised spirit of a born actor. ;  He can have it back if he"\vants -  it. .  It's a pleasant feeling to be a  Jimmy Stewart or a James  Mason or even a Groucho Marx,  k for a few minutes, but- there's  no denying that it has its dangers, too.  Running into a friend after  seeing the latest John Garfield  picture finds me. with my coat  collar up, around by neck, a  took of hard-boiled cynicism on  a face that, sad to say, looks  _ about as worldly as a boy scout  leader.  "Hiya," I snarl to passing  friends. If they pause to chat,  I astound them by limiting my  conversation to the simple  word, "yeah." After all, that's  about all that John Garfield  ever says and the girls go simply wild about him. My friends*  are always a little less enthusiastic.    , '   .  In my time I guess I have felt  like almost every male star in  the movie with, the possible exception of Mickey Mouse and  Lassie, but my favorite impersonation of all is Spencer^ Tracy.  The Tracy character doesn't  seem to tax my. limited creative  powers _as much as, say, Mickey  Rooneyr After' seeing- a-Tracy *  picture, I walk around with a  sort of quizzical, relaxed look  on my-face, speak soltly to the '  switchboard girl with a quiet,  Tracy-like smile and generally  act in what might, be, a typical  manner for the star.  Sad- pictures make me" sad,  gay .pictures make me gay. - If  I go to a movie'in��� which Lana  Turner and Tyrone Tower are  making with the romance, making those running broad jumps .  at each,other, it has a .terrible  effect online. 1 am-liable to "go-,  home and frighten the devil out  of my wife with a suggestive'  leer instead of the usual smack  on the brow.  Of course, the curse of my  existence these days is the gen-  eraUjpoliey of most theatres in  running double bills. Once I  used to come away from the  movies as just one imaginary  man, but after seeing one picture with William-Bendix and  another with Ray Milland, ��� the  combination of split personalities is too much for me.  Fortunately,-nobody, jhas: ever ,  taken these unconscious characterizations seriously arid1 I'sup-  j  pose that we are all a  little  guilty   of   romanticizing   ourselves  after   we  see" a,  show.  of a month.ago, southern and  eastern localities simmered under a temperature ten degrees  above ours, now, when a few-  extra degrees are .vyelcome, we  are the ones who have them.  * *    *'  We have three Sam Armours  in Gibsons again. The two  younger Sams, father and son.  have returned from the Skeena,  . Where they have spent the fishing season at one of the canneries there. Sam III no sooner  arrived than he traded an automobile that didn't seem to want  to go to Bill Malyea for a  "motor-bike that did. Bill got  the buggy to run, so both are  happy, and travelling. Grandpa Sam Armour came to Gibsons in 1910, and ha$ watched  his children, grand-children,  and great-grandchildren grow  up at Gibsons.  * *    *  Has anybody been tell you  that the Coast News doesn't get  around? Jack McCance has  been running a classified ad. in  the recent issues concerning a  string Of saddle horses. He more  or less expected a reply from  local residents, but shook his  head at what arrived. Not only  were there far more answers  than he anticipated, but the  mail the other day brought an  enquiry from the postmaster  at Stewart Island. So���the  Coast News seems to travel up  the coast at least as far as the  tide.  . Alan Farquhar, Grantham's  83-year-young resident, was in  Vancouver to see the first game  of the-St. Andrew's-Winnipeg  Scottish Dominion soccer final.  Not only had Mr. Farquhar seen  these teams play before, "but he  has" been "seeing "football games  since before the sport )vas played in Canada. He^aSy, his first  match in 1876 iri Duftd&f Scotland, his, native. toVm- - in the  same year that J5ave' Forsythe  introduced the game to Canada.  He met Forsythe, a young Scottish school teacher, after his  arrival in Canada in 1885, and"  saw his >first game 'played here  that year.  Since then he has watched  games and Dominion matches  right across Canada. Mr. Farquhar states that today's players cannot compare with those  of yesteryear. Isn't that always'  the case?  Maybe that's why we go to the  movies. -  I know that when I was  Charles Boyer J for nearly ' a  whole evening the only thing  that happened to me was that  my wife kept looking at me for  several minutes and finally  came over and handed me two  aspirin tablets.

A tour is conducted every  half hour through , the N.B.C.  studios ($1.20 each) showing  the growth of the radio and its  innards���up to the present television. The N;B.C. board resembles a switchboard and is a  half block long with two engineers in full attendance night  and day.

There are 17,000 taxis in New  ' York -r~ that is all ��� and they  have glass roofs, so you always  look up and never sideways.  New Yor^ City is spoken of as  Manhattan.  That tree that grows in  Bropklyn has all kinds of brothers and sisters. "No parking"  and' "Curb Your Dog" signs are  evident throughout the city.  yConey Island,. contrary to  popular belief^ ,is, not only an  amusement park but a city all  its own with theatres and drug  stores open all night, and loads  of stores of every description  make up the suburb of Coney  Island.

Everything air-conditioned and  The Editor,  . Coast News,  Dear Sir,���The recent meeting of the Board-of Trade at  Sechelt is a fair sample of how  not to get things done. The  general idea prevalent at the  meeting seemed to be scoffing  and jeering at government servants and their efforts. It was  quite apparent "that very few of  those present had given any  thought or concerned themselves to find out .why more  progress has not been made on  the various projects that have  and are being undertaken by  the various branches of both  governments.  The president was not well  informed when he recounted an  anecdote of the Port Mellon  road. The road is non-existent  and when the telephone was put.  through; there was no consideration of any road. If there is  "^ri^ifjustificatipriyiory a road  yiinde��?t&^  est good for the greatest number" then the Port Mellon road  is definitely in first place.  ���  It must be known to the  board that the whole province  is in a poor state as far as roads  are concerned and the published program of the provincial  government takes note of that.  It is quite within the bounds of  the board to ask and also to  criticize but with helpful intent.  It was quite evident at the  meeting that, there was a wide  disparagement in the ideas of  the members as to what constitutes a road and the cost of construction under present day  conditions. We here are maritime and we have the problem  of wharves and floats, etc. It  is extremely doubtful whether  many of those present knew  which government has control  of this branch, also the expense  of maintaining same.

The Telegraph Service boat and  the public works department  scow were used for the purpose.

On  the mainland end of the line a  mile-long hook-up is required  between the Port Mellon circuit  and Williamson's Landing before the line can be completed.
