Mayor J. E. "Gee" Ahem of Halifax and  Premier Angus L. Macdonald of Nova Scotia, along  with William Manson, system vice-president of the  G.P.R., were on hand for the presentation. Picture  at lower right shows some of the large crowd-that  was present at the ceremony. The pole was cut by  Goodwin-Johnson Logging company, and required  three flat cars to transport it across Canada to its new  home where it provides a goodwill link between east  and west. The task of getting if through the sRocky  Mountain-passes of the C.P.R. provided some inters  estmg moments for train crews, but the job was done  in record time.

PAPERMAKERS���Above is a close up on the safe side of a  colony of' nature's paper mtikers, a nest of Black Hornets.  An-extra large specimen, the nest measured almost 14 inches  in length and nearly 10 inches in width. It wasfound recently  at Cottonwood Creek, Cowichan Lake, B.C. Like members  of the wasp family/ the hornet manufactures a fine kraft-like  paper by a process basically similar to that of British Columbia's moderih pulp and paper mills. Employees in the industry^  earned over 14 million dollars In 1946; hornets got nothing.  BIBLE READING  REJOICE   in  the  Lord,   O   ye  righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.  He loveth righteousness and  judgment: the earth is. full of  the goodness of the Lord. By the  word of the Lord were the  heavens made; and all the host  of them by the breath of His  mouth;  Let all the earth fear the  Lord: let all the inhabitants of  the world stand in awe of Him.  For He spake, and it was done;  He commanded, and it stood  - fast. yr .' . y y '.  Behold, the eye of the Lord  is upon: them that fear Him,  upon them that hope in His  : mjercjrjy To deliver their soul  v frbrn death, and to keep them  vyaliyejrtfarriine. -Our soul -wait--.  ;jv' etfefefory the.-���- Lord:.-., Ite  is your-,  ;���. heart' shall re joice in: liini, be-  y cause we have trusted in His  Holy- name. Let Thy mercy, _  Os Lorci, be upon us, according  as we hope in Thee. ��� Psalm  33:1,5,6,8,9,18-22.  THEN   the   king ; commanded,  and they brought Daniel, and  cast him into the den of lions.  Now the king spake and said  unto yDaniel, Thy God whom  thou -'servest continually, He  will deliver thee. And a stone  was brought, and laid upon the  mouth of the den; and the king  sealed it with his own signet,  and; with the signet of his lords;  that the purpose might not  be  changed concerning Daniel.  Then the king arose very  early in the morning, and went  : in haste unto the den. of lions.  And when he came to the den,  he cried with a lamentable  voice unto Daniel: and the king  spake and said to Daniel, O  Daniel, servant of the living  God, is thy God, whom thou  ��� servest continually, able to deliver thee from, the lions? Then  said : Daniel unto the ��� king, O  king, live forever, My God hath  sent His angel, and hath shut  the lions' mouths, that they  have not hurt me: forasmuch  as before Him innocency was  found in me; and also before  thiee, O king, have I done no  hurt.  Then king Darius wrote unto  all people, "nations, and languages, that dwell in all the  earth; Peace be multiplied unto  you. I make a; decree, that in  every, dominion of my kingdom  men tremble and fear before  the God of Daniel: for He is  the living God, and steadfast  for ever, .and His kingdom that  which shall not be"- destroyed,  and His dominion.shairbe even  urito the end. He delivereth  and rescueth, and He worketh  signs and wonders in heaven  and in-earth, whohatfr delivered Daniel from the power of the  lions.  ���Daniel: 6:16^17,;19~22,25-27.  A Year Ago Today  .

Dear Editor,���I wish to thank  Spike Malone of Sechelt for  what I believe to be a very  witty solution to my "bear  problem," although I may be  only half right in this deduction.  However I now have another  problem which he might like to  sink his teeth into. (With current meat shortage the exercise  might be good for his teeth.)  I have decided that I should  like a "positioon" in the woods  in the logging profession.  I have chosen "high rigging"  ���but due to a certain optical  aberration I find that I usually  cut the tree off about six inches  below my feet. As I could see  no future in this I consulted a  logger-here;of my acquaintance,  who incidentally is *the best  logger on the coast (so he advises me).  He suggested that I either  stand on my head or get a skyhook to suspend myself from.  I should feel greatly indebted  to Spike Malone if he could advise me wher;e I might procure  a sky-hook and how it is rigged.  Jack MacGoon,  MlDDLEPOINT.  Tribute Paid to  Late George Walker  By L. S. JACKSON  WILSON CREEK���The waves  of years have washed a landmark from our midst. George  has gone, and like the man who  never got ..to Carassone, Australia, he was always on the list.  But the garden always took  first place. The imagination is  staggered when one looks back  over the- period of years, at the  weight of vegetables he turned  out over his lifetime here of 43  years, and what with being  major-domo for the Girl guides,  trouble shooter for the telephone and survey stake finder,  meeter of boats (that is when  he met the- "Comox" with, a  rowboat) and anywhere he  could help, he would. It can be  truly said G. Walker ran a good  race and finished well. We shall  miss George. Our sympathies  are with his wife.

Mahfield has as her  house guest- her niece, Miss  Ida Bond, who; arrived here in  September by plane from England. Miss Bond had; a good  flight in spite;of bad weather,  leaving the London airport Friday, September 12* at 3:30 p.m.,  arriving in Vancouver Sunday,  September 14)"-%t'3 p.m.  It was with j deep feelings of  regret that - the residents of  Hopkins Landing and the surrounding neighborhood heard  of the retirement from business  of; Mr. * andy Mrs. Cambourne  who have owned - and operated  the store there- for many years.  But it was with pleasure the  news was received that Mr. and  Mrs. Cambourne would spend  their well-earned holiday at  Hopkins Landihg and will take  up permanent, residence in their  new Home ���early in-October.'  During the years they have  been in business they have  built up a most enviable reputation not onlj' from the business standpoint, but as courteous  and kindly people who were  ready to serve the community  in any way and at any hour of  the day or night. From all who  have been associated with them  in any way jgo the very best  wishes for. many years of relaxation and happiness, the;  happiness that,is always the re-,  ward'of a job well done.  It is also with pleasure that  we hear the b^iness has been  taken over by ..Mr. and Mrs.'H.  Docker, so well iand favorably  known at Hopkjtos. _?o them we  say good luck ^hd success.  TIME was, not so many years  ago, when an observer from a  boat on West Howe Sound, in  the evening could count the  lights of Gibsons and name to  himself whose home each of  them came from.  It is a different story now.  Now it is like trying to count  the stars in the heavens as they  appear at sundown. First there  is one, then two, then four, and  the census seems to be going  smoothly. Then, suddenly,  above all about, little points of  light burst about you in a million pair, and you are lost.  Travelling down the sound  particularly is this phenomenon  perceptible. The lights seem  within comprehension as they  first come into view, but suddenly, as they appear broadside, they are too many.  *    *    *  Alan Farquhar returned home  from a holiday in Vancouver in  time to celebrate his 83rd birthday. A Guests at the surprise  partyy were   Mrsi^Smith,   Mrs. y  and Mfsy Heffernan, all of Hopkins Landing; Mrs. Farquhar  secretly baked a lovely cake for  the occasion.  C-Hohiesal solved his housing and moving problems at one  blow; First he had a house but  noyiot.? So he obtained permission from Jack Nelson to park  his house on his property temporarily. Then he managed to  buy a lot, but there was no  house on it. So, he had his.  house yto wed to the lot, and set  it in position there. Now he  and -Mrs. Hohiesal have their  own .home; on their own property at last;  ��� ���.���.*.   *    *  Reverend and Mrs. Frank  Bushfield have returned from  a five-week trip visiting their  daughter and son-in-law, Mr.  and Mrs. M. Paul Fountain, at  Yakima, -Wash., arid visiting  Seattle and Vancouver en route.  While in Yakima, ;Rev. Bushfield baptized his younger  grandson, , John Milton Mountain. The " ceremony was held  at home, with friends of the  family present. Rev. Bushfield  also preached in First Methodist Church at Yakima on Sunday, September 14.  This port has had a vivid reminder of the fact that a considerable quantity of B.C.'s  forest products go to the United  States   in   the   form   of  whole  logs. The giant oeean towine  tug "Teton" has not only  brought a long tow to the Shelter Islands grounds, but has  paid a visit to Gibsons while  waiting for settled weather.  Standing alongside one of its  tows, it can be seen that the  Teton is longer than two sections of logs. Marks at bow and  stern state it draws 12 and 13  feet of water. Multiple lines  attached to various parts of its  tow indicate the power of the  ship, and the length and width  of the tow itself reveal to the  observer the amount of lumber  in the rough that is going across  the border.  * *    *  A reader has asked us to  lodge a complaint on behalf of  all those persons who are  aroused in the small hours by  various boats tooting their  whistles on the sound. The  question is: Couldn't there be  some way for these ships to announce their arrival to whoever  must meet them by some means  other than such racous tootles?  * *    *  This week's Champion &  White scow brought costly trip-  giving nay  GULF Lines are making a special sailing next Monday  (Thanksgiving, October 13) on  their regular route, as well as  to Gibsons.  MV. Gulf Wing will leave  Vancouver for this Monday  only on her regular week-day  schedule, at 9:30 a.m., calling  northbound at Sechelt, Halfmoon  ahd Pender Harbour.  Leaving Pender southbound  at 1:30 p.m. she will make calls  at Halfmoon and Sechelt, arriving Vancouver at 6 p.m.  Leaving Vancouver again at  6:15 p.m. this Monday only, the  Gulf Wing will go direct to Gibsons, where she remains overnight, leaving at 7 a.m. Tuesday  for Vancouver to resume regular schedules.  This special sailing will be of  interest  to   all  peninsula   residents, enabling them to holiday  either  on the peninsula  or in "  the city.

The Shell Oil Station here at  Gibsons has suddenly appeared  with a notice board on which is  marked the arrival and departure times of all transportation lines to and from here.  * .*    *  Lots of people think that the  Yanks won the series, and  many ��� more feel that the  Dodgers should have won. But  we all know better here. We  know that it was Bob Murray  two, Jim Schutz two, and Mrs.  Clay one, to make it a three-  way fade for all those who came  so close.  * *    *  Mrs. Battison, of Headlands,  has taken another strike at  business life. This time she  has purchased the Black and  White store from S. Smythe.  Mrs. Battison will be remembered by some as the creator of  creative meals at the Bonnie  Brook lodge two years ago, and  by many more as the. genial  hostess of the Merry Ern for a  year. Now she is casting her  wim and wigour into the shop-  keeping business, and the prediction is that she will be a most  successful saleslady.  Italy plans to ship 250,000  000 Italians to Argentina within five years.  BACK again in West Sechelt  after living in Scapa Alberta  for a number of years, are Mr.  and Mrs. Pondsford. Mrs.  Pondsford is the . former Nellie  Walker of West Sechelt. The  Pondfords are staying at the  home of Mrs. M. Nelson.  * *    *  We are glad to have Mrs.  Nickson back with us in West  Sechelt again. It is good to  know that she made such a  quick recovery from the fall in  which she hurt her hip. Mrs.  Nickson has been recuperating  at the home of her daughter,  Mrs. D. Sutherland in Vancouver.  * *    *  On Thursday, October 2, Miss  G.

L. Sim-  ning and Mr. W. Berry. We  wish them all the success in the  world.  * *    *  The other week-end I was  very pleasantly surprised when  attending the annual British  Columbia Artists' exhibition, to  find no less than three paintings of the local scenery. Two  were of Sechelt and one of  Davis Bay. The picture entitled "Morning, Sechelt, B.C.,"  is very good.and the local artist.  F. V. Heakes, who painted it is  to be highly commended. The  other picture of . Sechelt by  Dorothy H. Willis, entitled  "Prosperity," shows a view of  the ���' Indian village, the church  and the grave yard. This is a  very large picture and, if you  appreciate modern art, it is  really a very excellent piece of  work. The other picture,  "Morning Catch at Davis Bay,  B.C.," is a beautiful oil painting by a local artist, Alberta  Chilton.  These local artists who so  successfully entered their pictures have achieved a very  noteworthy accomplishment.  All exhibits at the annual B.C.  Artists' exhibition represent  the highest art achievements in  B.C.  CNSS PRINCE GEORGE, the Canadian-built 322-passenger  ship built for Canadian National Steamship service at  Yarrows, Vancouver Island, was launched on Monday. She  will soon go into service on the Vancouver-Powell River-Prince  Rupert and Alaska run. SS. Prince George is 350 feet in  length, 42-foot beam, with a speed of 18 knots, and boasts an  entirely new streamlined design, with luxurious fittings for  all classes of passengers. Modern navigation aids, including  radar, gyro compass, echo sounder, and wireless are employed and nothing has been overlooked which will make for  safety and comfort of travellers on this popular line.  9��-6t nav  o <���. vi:-.ioi.ot.\ THE COAST NEWS���Wednesday, October 10, 1947  IUY MEAT  wwmww  Compare our prices with  the city.

Miss Pearson is now  married; George Gibb is going  to varsity; Margaret Clarke is  moving to the U.S.; Gloria  Frost is going to Crofton House;  Kay Coleridge, Bernard D'Aoust  and Clif Gibson are in Gibsons,  and Jackie Wiren is at Port  Mellon.

Among the new students are Betty Grant from  Queen's Hall, Grace Dickson  from Burnaby South High  School, Mary Jean Holloway  from Creston, and Peter Trower  from North Van High School.  : We'hope you'll all like our new  school.  ACTIVITIES  At our school assembly on  Thursday, September 25, the  nominations for council members were discussed. Peter  Trower, Pat Slinn, Betty  (Smith) Brown and Jack Nestman are in charge of the nominations. The elections will be  held next week.  The first meeting of the Girls'  Club was held Saturday, September 20, and owes much of  its successful start to Miss M.  Forry, V.O.N. Next meeting  will be held Wednesday, October 1. The activities include  cooking,.sewing, knitting and a  beauty course.  SPORTS  Our first victim of the year  is Barry Stewart. The boys  were playing soccer when a  wild ball broke a window.  Barry was standing underneath.  The broken glass cut an artery  and a vein in his right arm,  requiring five stitches. There  is the brighter side, though, the  man gets away with murder  when it comes to school work.  "I'm an invalid!" he groans, and  spends the period shooting spit-  balls at Chuck Kane.  Soccer and American football  seem to be popular with the  boys, and even the public school  lads are in there kicking.  Grades 9-12 girls are learning  the Irish Jig and.the Swedish  Folk Dance���Enough said!  ��� Out on the field Mr. Trueman  excites the boys' and girls', interest in drill exercises by  chanting verses, such as "Cat's  got the measles^... And don't  know what to do." Even at that,  Barry Palmer seems to be having his troubles.
