I do hope that the log--  gers will be able to at least clear  the trails so that some of us who  love the woods and there are  many, will be able to take our  usual walks, and with reference  to the summer visitors what is  left when the walks through the  woods are gone. It is not everyone who likes the dusty highway  and many come up here year  after year just for the pleasure  of walking through our woods.  Also there is the fire hazard, so  we will ,hope for the best.  By "CAROLA",  *  The newly formed native sisterhood on our Indian village is  planning a good time on March  27.

SPONSORED   BY   YOUR    BANK Page Eight  THE COAST NEWS, SECHELT, &.-C._  Friday, February 13, 1948  T  By EARLE GRAY  ONE HUNDRED and nine words  may not be a very big vocabulary, but for a two-year-old love  bird it is. And that is the vocabulary of "Lucky", the little green  .and yellow love bird that .-struts  its feathers in the home of Mr.  and Mrs. A. Redman in West  Sechelt.  He is a very clever bird, one of  West Sechelt's celebrities, and  quite willing to admit it all. As  he says himself, "I can talk, and  I can whistle but I can not sing.  Ha ha ha." Which proves that  he can also laugh. In case an introduction   is   lacking   he   will  speak right up and say "my name  is Lucky Redman."  Like all genius, Lucky is moody  and .temperamental at times.  These are the times he refuses to  speak. However, a bit of music  from the radio, or better yet, a  few bars from the piano, and  Lucky will once 'more chatter  gaily. ..������'������'";������ :  A tamer bird you never saw.

Training the bird is a lot of  work and requires much patience,  according to Mrs. Redman. However the older Lucky gets, the  quicker he learns new words. It  now takes him from two days to  a week to learn a new phrase.  Lucky has a mind of his own  and a lot of likes and dislikes.
