Pender Aquatic Qui  Holds Regatta Sept. 1  By A. A. LLOYD  THE WEATHER man apparently approved the Pender  Harbour Aquatic Club's first  regatta, as he sent along a perfect day as his contribution to  iis success. A large crowd was  gathered along the shore of our  beautiful Garden Bay to view  the events.  A start was made with junior  An Island Tour  By EARLE GRAY  AFTER days ofv waiting we  were at last started on our  cycling tour of Vancouver  Island. There were just the  two bf us, 11^ brother Dennis  arid 'myself. During this, time  we ��� ��� -were* to stay at' a chain of  Canadian Youth Hostels, an organization that is ail answer to  the cyclists prayers;  The boat pulled out from the  wharf at Sechelt and we started  on the: first leg of bur trip that  ���tbbk lis to Vancouver Island via  Vancouver.  By 10:30 we arrived in Vancouver Where I discovered that  myy bikey hady its first^ilat tire.  swimming andx diving, the  youngsters entering into the  spirit of things with lots of enthusiasm. A feature was Mervin  Reid who won his race by swimming half the course under  water, with apparently as much  ease as the others did on top.  David Parich of Silver Sands  took a first and two seconds, and  Cedric Reid's family showed  what lots of practice can do.  In ; the ;senior -events after  lunch, Mrs. Andersonwon both  the ladies' races, and Cecilia  Hassan (late of Edmonton),  showed up the coast people by  taking both the ladies' diving  events, with a very pretty display. Russ Keillor won the  men's open race in a close finish  against strong competition.  Frank Nelson and Bruce Mcintosh showed us some grand div-  '/ ing in the men's event, Frank  * finally winning after the event  went two extra dives.  The rowboat race was won by  Alfred Page, who was challenged to a nice long race by bur  friend Tom Brazil who, while  not as young as heused to be,  thinks nothing of rowing from  H^rdy Island andyback to do his  until we found a ^garage that  was open. After getting enough  air  toy takeyyus  to.:/bin* aurtt*s  : pljw^w^sytarted rising.  The  next imprnm  Aug. 24; Was clear and bright.  -It was a morning full of promise for a day of adyenture>:  Now came'the task of riding  our bikes through the busy  streets of Vancouver and out  onto the C.P.R. docks. This was  miraculoVLsljr accomplished  .without loss bf life. After purchasing tickets and checking  bikes and ; baggage we were  soon aboard the S,S. Princess  Elaine sailing through the Gulf  of Georgia, Nanaimo -bound.  ���'i A bright sun shone as we  neared Nanaimo, Across from  us we could make out Sechelt.  Fur the r up the Strait bf  Georgia, Texada Island stood  out in bold relief. A lone lighthouse stood guard on a small  island just outside Nanaimo.  After getting off the boat the  battle for the baggage began.  After what seemed eternity we  emerged victorious with all our  belongings, such y as they were.  y After this cariie a tour of Nanaimo^ ��� Theybld fbrty the narrow winding street, the small  shops, all these we carefully injected; yy-^/z:: "vr ":'���'*'[.''��� ._;���-.::  ' After spending the night at  Departure Bay we left the next  morning for Yellow Point, a  distance of" some 15 miles. Arriving here early we had spare  time oh our hands.  AMBITIOUS TREE  After some swimming and  boating we decided to invade  the famous Yellow Point Lodge  and see for,ourselves the arbutus tree which reportedly  grew through the main room of  the lodge. The owners were  rather choosy about who wan-  (See Island Tour���Page 8)  ing&.-v-���v.%-;y; &'���'���.- ���' -y���, 'z-, -y.,  Frank Nelson oh water; skis,  . Jbehihdftlie "Miss Leola" driven  by Bert Anderson,. put bh one  of the star turns of the day, as  he flasbed around the bay, with  nothing but a slender rope, his  skis; and his skill to depend on.  It was a thrilling and beautiful  spectacle.  The air-cooled r ii n a b outs  (Pender    Harbour's    flivvers)  were very closely matched, and  smart handling as much as speed  gave the winners their victories.  The log bucking was a gruelling contest watched by a good  crowd yof "sidewalk superintendents." It takes a real man  to buck a log oh a hot day for  fun, especially in time like  Pete's.  Don Bout well j another gain  from the prairies, took the most  coveted prize of the day, when  he won the strongly and wetly  contested log rolling contest.  We'll bet the prize was very  handy .to warm you up, eh Don?  A greasy pole contest was a  real test of skill, calling for a  perfect y sense of balance and  plenty of luck to walk the pole,  get the flag, and walk back.  However as Norm said: "All you  rieed is confidence," and apparently he had it.  .The speed boat race was a  real thriller, and Charlie Harris  piloting Gordie Lyons boat, had  the whole crowd with their  mouths wide open, with lots of  speed and spectacular turns that  showed his complete mastery of  the boat, and his superb skill in  handling. Stick Dusenbury was  showing plenty of speed but ran  into grief on the turns to everyone's regret.  The power boat handicap was  a triumph of ingenuity oyer  mere horsepower as Frank Lee  brought the Mascot home first  while the fast boats came up  Speedboat Recovered  After Police Search  GIBSONS���The harbor of Gibsons was visited last Monday  by a maritime prowler. Loot  was the 24-foot speedboat,  "Trade-Wind," owned by C.  Geldart.  The speedy craft, equipped  with a V-8 motor, and capable  of 25 miles an hour, was taken  from its moorings in the harbor at some time during the  night.  The provincial police at  Sechelt were notified of the  theft, and subsequent search  led to the discovery of the boat  at Roberts Creek. Excepting  the loss of a searchlight and a  canvas covering, no damage had  been done to the vessel.  Gibsons Women Start  First Study Group  GIBSbNS���The first local study  group on "Child Psychology  for Parents" has been started  here by ten women in the community. They are starting with  a study on "Marriage and Family Relationship." All discussion material is issued by the  university, extension of U.B.C.  and is under the ausDices;bf Miss  ��� .���:;yY$n3^yyy+ ^^^.^y^^y^^y^^yr* v.>  / GJ^est  spe^  meeting were Mrs. J; Haworth,  teacher of the 70-pupii progressive kindergarten at Ocean  Falls, who spoke on the child's  status in the community and  stressed the need for training  all children in citizenship, and  Mrs. R. Mark, teacher of the  special class in Didgeway  School, North Vancouver, who  spoke on the maladjusted child.  The study group, under the  chairmanship of Mrs. A. C.  Bailey, has nine members, Mesdames Hewett, Poole, B. Lang,  N. R. McKibbin, H. Marshall, E.  Bingley, S. Fladager, A. S. True-  man, and Miss F. Forrey, district  V;O.N.

Gulf Lines Start Service  J o & on Sept 15  (See Pender Club-r-Page 8)  GULF Lines Ltd. announce an  extension to their present  peninsula service which will  .give residents of Gibsons two  direct . trips northbound per  week and two southbound. The  trip requires just 1% hours,  Gibsons to Vancouver.  MV. Gulf Wing leaves Vancouver 6:15 p.m. Fridays, arriving at Gibsons at 7:45 p.m. Remaining there overnight, the  ship leaves for Vancouver Saturday mornings at 7:30, arriving in the city at 9 a,m.  On Sundays, the ship leaves  Vancouver at the same time as  on Fridays, remaining at Gibsons overnight, but leaving one  half hour earlier on Monday  mornings   for   Vancouver/:at~7  o'clock, arriving in the city at  8:30 o'clock.  "This should prove an attractive schedule for both city residents and Gibsons residents, as  well as for week-end travellers,"  said T. N. LePage, managing  director for the Gulf Lines. "We  shall watch with interest the  support these trips receive, and  as always we shall be happy to  hear suggestions from travellers  for improvement of our services."  The new trips start Sept.- 15.  A new schedule for the Pender Harbour-Sechelt-Half Moon  Bay run goes into effect Sept.  15 also, and several improvements in service are noted.  GIBSONS���Discussing the attitude of the federal government at a meeting of West Howe  Sound branch of the Canadian  Legion, Sept. 2,. Robert Macnicol, public relations officer  of the B.C. command of the  Legion, termed government action as "callous and indifferent"  in connection with the Legion's  requests for better treatment of  widows, orphans, disability war  pensioners and recipients of  war veterans' allowance (burnt  out allowance).  Mr. Macnichol made reference  to the discussion which took  place in the House of Commons  when members of the opposition  parties endorsed the Canadian  Legion's proposal that the government should immediately  consider an increase in the basic  rate of pensions and war veterans allowances, in view of the  high cost of living.  When the amendment was  moved in the House of Commons on July 16, it was defeated  by a vote of 84 to 54, many  members of the house being  absent on that occasion. Of the  eight B.C; members who were  there when the vote was taken,  George Cruickshank, Ian Mackenzie, R. W. Mayhew and Tom  Reid voted against the Legion's  requests. Howard Green, E. D.  Fulton, H. W. Herridge, and  Wm. Irvine favored the proposals. Mr. Macnichol said that  the government muzzled its supporters by threatening to treat  the amendment as a vote of  confidence or non-confidence,  with the result that Liberal  members were prevented from  voting as,..their, conscience die-  ::. tatefe^*^:���^;^ y^, ^ *,v.^-v*c -v,/:.  REFUSED APPEALS  The speaker said the government had received several requests from Canadian Legion  headquarters at Ottawa to improve the treatment of widows,  orphans, pensions and war veterans allowance recipients, but  had refused to take action to  improve their financial condition.  By placing^ before the House  of Commons the Legion's requests the opposition members  had pledged the support of their  parties to better treatment of  those who fought for their  country.  Mr.  Macnicol  explained that  (See Legion Officers���Page 8)  EGMONT  SUMMER trolling season is over  for John West and Doug Wray  on the "Skeena Chief."

This will greatly  help the Community Hall fund  and was worth all the hard work  done to make the day a success.  *    *    *  Recent guests of Mr. and Mrs.  Harry Batchelor were Mr. and,  Mrs. J.

I think there  are one or two new mild cases.  *    *    *  I would like to say hello to  the Townsite. So many have  told me how they enjoy reading  our column and only wish someone would get busy and give me  some competition. How about  it, folk? I could mention a few  things of interest up there, but  for now I'd better stick to the  Beach.  I hear the townsite dance was  a success (and without me at  that!). After living up there  for seven years and married up  there, I still feel a little of it belongs to me, especially when it  comes to skiing when the snow-  plow is around.  I was told to mention this  next little item about two town-  site old-timers who went for a  bus ride from Vancouver to  New Westminster and they enjoyed the trip so much that it  took the driver 15 minutes to  waken them at their destination-  They sure must have been gadding around, and seeing rooms  are so hard to get, I guess its as  good a place to snitch five as  any. -  * * ��� . *  Oh, dear, 10 a.m. V/hile I'm  sitting here there's ,a khockv at  they door, and lo and behqlid  stands a lady who had walked  all the way down the incline tb  get the Bonnabelle. When she  gets to the store out goes the  boat. Tough luck, ejh what. But  I hope that lady enjoyed her  visit with me until the Union  boat came at 3:30. I enjoyed  haying her and hope she won't  be too stiff.  '������"'.*.   *    *.  Talk about gadding, I went  down to the fair for one evening. I didn't win a thing, but  I sure had fun and did something I've wanted to do for  years���ride on the giant dipper.  I liked it that much we stayed  on for another ride, and I'm  sure my one hip is bigger than  the  other from bumping from  side to side.  ��� *    *  Mr. and Mrs. Bob Fleming are  back after being in Vancouver  arid way points for a> few days.  I'd like to say hello to Kitty  and  Chuck Nicholson  at  San-  don and hope they like it.   I've ,  promised   to   write    until   I'm'  ashamed, but I will write soon.  *., "*.,������  Seeing I put everything from  soup to nuts in this column I  may as well put a "want ad."  When our Ivy leaves us pur  niah-jong goes also, so if any  has a set to sell I wish they  would y drop me a line, as it  would be very much appreciated, and believe it or not after  last night's session I'm top gal.  Gee,, I'm smart. Hope Ivy,  Olive or Grace don't read this  or else?  Here we are with another  couple of baby showers. On Friday night, Olive Cartier was  surprised at hei" own house. Mrs.  Ernie Ackers and Mrs; Jean Anderson were joint hostesses for  4 the shower. The evening was  spent   playing   "crazy   whist  Mrs. R. Fleming winning first  prize and Mrs. H. Anaka consolation. Others present were  Mesdames Manson, Timins,  Haimes, A. Proudfoot, F. Proud-  foot. The eats as per were  lovely and we've all got our fingers crossed for Olive. "It"  must be a boy.   Good luck.  Then on the same Friday evening Sute Settle came home to  find 20 ladies sitting in her  front room and was she surprised, but somewhat worried over  the fact she didn't have much  to feed us all, as if we cared,  all being small eaters like yours  truly. Of course there was  enough food for an army. Olive  Baxter and Helen Hill were the,  co-hostesses. First we made  poor Sue work for her gifts, as  she found each parcel there was  a clue to where she would find  the next one and believe" ihe she  sure found more in the cupboard than old Mother Hubbard  did.   Everything was lovely.��.-.-...  The evening v/as spent in  playing bridge and whist. Elsie  Baldersoh winning first for  bridge and our Ivy consolation.  Yours truly first for whist, and  Flo Verdisco, consolation. Sue  really got enough for another  set of twins, but we'll all settle  for just one little boy.  * *    *   ���  Well the younger chicks are  starting to entertain. Sheila  Fleming had two tables of crazy  whist in honor of Verelie Kemper, who is going to leave Britannia to attend school in Vancouver. I believe the girls did  their own baking, and y by all  accounts everything was grand.  The guest of honor won first  prize and Adele Cortz, consolation. Others present were Anne  McLeod, Jackie Sumter, Queen  Baxter, Pat Hurley. So we will  wish Verelie happy days ahead.  ...'*���   .*.    *  Welcome home Rev. and Mrs.  IVfcKay, who have been in Vancouver for the summer and hy  all accounts have nearly; com-.  pleted their new home; which is  going to be the home (for the  time being) of their only Son,  who I believe was married in  August.  * *    *  Congratulations to Eric Robinson and his bride who were  married last week at Armstrong.

Speaking of that rainy season  brings to mind the new school  which is planned for this area  with its provision for rainy day  play-space, thereby creating a  healthier atmosphere for recess  periods  and   doing  away  with  "the germ."  * *    *  Mr. and Mrs. A.

Gough on the Sechelt  highway two miles west of Gibsons, has been purchased by  Secord Dairy of Gibsons.  This property, homesteaded  and cleared by the late Wm.  "Dan" Steinbrunner, embraces  the largest plot of cleared and  grazing grounds in the district.  Equipped with roomy barns and  supplied with its own spring  water, it should make an ideal  location for an enterprise of this  type.

PAMPHLET DISTRIBUTED  The provincial government  has distributed to all householders in the province a pamphlet entitled "British Columbia's Formula for Peace in Industry," which gives a synopsis  of the requirements of the new  I.C.A. Act, which is designed to  bring closer employer-employee  relationship and a better basis  upon which to conduct bargain  ing negotiations.  Hon. E. C. Carson, minister of  public works, stated that the  provincial government has formally requested the dominion  government to undertake construction of the proposed new  road link between Atlin and  the Alaska Highway. Total cost  of the project is estimated at  $400,000.  The provincial government is  prepared to pay $200,000 required for the portion of the  road that would lie in British  Columbia, and is asking Ottawa  to do the work and pay for the  Yukon section. It is considered  unlikely, however, that work  would start this year, as the  Dominion parliament did not  make an appropriation for it at  the 1947 session.

He went on the "Breeze5'  with Jim Parker to Skookum  chuck, Cloholm Falls and Narrows Arm. He is one of the  directors of.

There.is also a Mermaid Street,  and I am glad I am not one of  the Mermaids; also a Barnacle  Street, that is worse still.

Farm Workers Get  Weekly Pay Boost  SEVEN hundred thousand farm  workers in Britain are receiving more money as from the  beginning of September. Orders  made by the agricultural wages  board at their meeting in London on Aug. 19 bring into effect  weekly pay increases of ten shillings ($2) ifor men and eight  shillings ($1.60) for women."  This means that the minimum  wage for a 48-hour week is  raising to 90 shillings ($18) for  adult male land workers and ��B  shillings ($13.60) for women.  some later date from this unofficial visit. I am very anxious  to see better library facilities in  our school and hope this is a  move in the right direction. We  found Mr. Ellis most anxious to  co-operate and although he has  only recently arrived was very  much on the job.  *    *    *  We cannot close this column  without mention of the great  loss "sustained by the community 4 in the passing of Norah  Cawley wife of A.

Although Mrs.  CaWley has not been active in  community affairs of late, she  was at, one time a great factor  at all the women's meetings,  and her pleasant personality and  sence of humor will long be remembered by us all. She was  at one time trustee of the  Sechelt school board and oper-;  ated Sunset Lodge. I have had  several letters from out of  town residents requesting an  issue of this paper. The St.  Hilda's Church was filled to  capacity and the church grounds  crowded with others who came  to pay. their last respects.

Since a baby is nine months  old when born, expert attention  is essential from the outset, and  the mother who maintains close  liaison with the family physician  throughout her pregnancy is  conceded a far better chance for  a successful outcome of her experience, and for a healthier  baby.  Medical authorities believe  that more general adoption of  the facilities for consultation  and care arising from pre-natal  direction will do much to reduce the infant mortality rate  in this country. .

The plumbing and  heating industry is doing all in  its power to assist this1 modernization of resort facilities, at the  same time fulfilling the needs  of the new homes now being  built.  Resort and hotel managers  realize that if this American  trade is to be retained in future  years the guests must be provided with all modern conveniences. The modern tourist likes  up-to-date plumbing and heat-  inig in the midst of his outdoor  life. The new resorts, therefore,  are being equipped with the  latest facilities, and established  places are being renovated as  rapidly as possible.    '  A quarter billion dollars will  bes spent in Canada this year by  American tourists it is estimated  by tourist officials. Of this vast  sum, about $100,000,000 or nearly half, will be spent in hotels  and restaurants, and the rest in  stores, amusements and for  transportation.

By EARLE GRAY  WEST Sechelt is still growing  by leaps and bounds. Everywhere one looks you find new  houses going up, sub-divisions  for sale, property being cleared  and other signs which all indicate the rapid growth of West  Sechelt. At the bottom of the  Findlay hill you can watch a bulldozer clearing a road allowance  to the beach, while new subdivisions go up for sale. At the  top of the hill, right at the cross  roads, you can see where Mr. E.  Pollock is building his new  house and where Mr. Frank  Walker moved his house and is  extensively remodelling it.  * *    *  Mr. and Mrs. E. Redman returned last Saturday from a  three-week holiday in Vancouver. They find it nice to spend  their holidays in Vancouver but  better to be home again in West  Sechelt.  * *    *  A familiar land mark in West  Sechelt has been sold. The old  United Farmers' hall, along with  39 acres of land has been sold  by Miss Christensen to Mr. R.  Hutton. The property was formerly owned by Mr. Mitchell  who gave one acre to the school  board and gave permission to  the United Farmers to build on  his property with the understanding that whoever owned  the land when the United FarnW  ers disbanded would own the  hall. In bygone days the hall  was the nucleus of political  meetings, fiery school meetings,  dances and gay social events.  It has often been honoured by  such famous men as the late  Gerry McGeer and other political leaders.  The United Farmers were organized in the year 1921 by Mr.  W. B. Billingsly, secretary. They  disbanded about 1935, however  the hall was still used for a  number of years after that.  The United Farmers were instrumental in having the Find-  laly hill road constructed and  also in keeping open the short  cut at Sechelt that goes between  Flecks and Burley's, and then  along the waterfront to the  Sechelt wharf.  Yes, in its heyday the old  Farmers' hall has harboured a  powerful influence on local  politics. Today it still stands,  symbolic of the pioneer spirit of,  the past.

The speaker compared the  favorable treatment extended  by the federal authorities to  other groups with its treatment  of veterans and their dependents. He mentioned the $2,000  yearly   increased   remuneration  for members of the House of  Commons and the Senate; the  increase of $7,000 yearly to the  leader of the government group  in the Senate and $14,000 yearly  to the leader of the opposition  in the Senate; the granting of  life pensions to certain people  in Canada's diplomatic service  after only five years service.  "When it comes to dealing with  its own friends or those, who  have the inside road to the obtaining of better conditions, the  government has been more than  generous, said Mr. Macnichol.  "The same cannot be said in its  present treatment of veterans  and widows who are forced to  live or exist on very meagre  allowances."  He suggested that the remedy  was for veterans to take more  interest in the doings of parliament and their parliamentary  representatives and also to  adopt a more militant attitude  on the part of veterans and the  veteran organizations.

It was worth  our effort to get in and see the  famed tree.  Next day we passed through  Ladysmith, Chemainus, West-  holme, Duncan and other places  too numerous to mention. Finally we reached Shawnigan  Lake, our last stop before Victoria. Upon arriving our ears  were greeted with peals bf  laughter obviously issuing from  feminine voices. Further investigation proved that we were  far outnumbered by girls: during supper it was. learned that  two of the girls would be going  our way tomorrow.  Early next morning Dennis  and I left for Victoria via the  Malahat drive. The girls travelled via the Mill Bay ferry.  We arrived about ten minutes  before the girls.  Being too lazy to bother  cooking supper we all went into  town to carefully look over our  famed capital city and get a  good supper for a change. After  seeing a show, eating our supper and seeing some of the  sights we set out in search of  a bobby wearing one of those  much-talked-rabout helmets. It  took a lot of hunting but we  finally found one. ,'  LIONS' DEN  Still dressed in our travelling  clothes, strictly third class  affairs and thoroughly smeared  in grease by this time, we decided to investigate the inside  pi the Empress Hotel^  fearing that ywe would belliter- .  ally kicked out at any mQhient,  we entered the place, feeling  like a bunch of hobos entering  the Stork club of the Waldorf  Astoria.   :  Once inside we were duly impressed with the stately splen  dour and magnificence. I was  carrying a small bottle of jam  while one of the girls was carrying a package of Aunt Jemima's  Ready Mix, the making for the  next day's breakfast. I felt a  little conspicuous with my third  class travelling clothes and that  bottle of jam. I hastily put it in  my coat pocket. It bulged out  quite a bit but that was all  right until I noticed that several  people were eying the "bottle"  with apparent suspicion.   I was  _Fridoy, September 12, 1947  Jxankly relieved when we walked out.  The next day, Thursday, we  looked over most of the sights  that we had missed the day before. At midnight we left for  Vancouver, the girls having left  for Seattle earlier in the day.  At Vancouver we saw the exhibition and finished our holiday.
