BOLTS ARE CHEAP—you cannot help the road conditions. Our sincere advice
to you as motorists is tb drop pressure of your front tires in half. This will offset
the terriibie punishment the front axle and mechanism have to stand. It is
cheaper to i>uy and repair tires rather than incur expensive repair bills and
tear oufrBqHs arid rivets until road conditions are improved.

This method, which no modern,  self-respecting Indian will care  to claim for his own, consists  of wrapping the fish in leaves, ���  burying it in the earth or sand  and lighting a fire over it.  Needless to say, by the time you  have    put    out   the    fire   and  excavated for the fish it is pretty;  well luke-warm, the leaves and^  dirt have become firmly embed-1  ded: in the carcass  and  might  even give you a life-long allergy  for fish.   .. :.x.    .-..-v,,;,^ x li  I sometimes wonder what ef-:  feet those baked alder leaves and  warm : mud have had on my in- >  test_n.il equipihent^;     v '.-.; *  The old stand-by argument that  .we:,would-be: artists of the^ fry- i  ing pah; fall back, on is���.'jtSes factv  th$t; m almost all d�� the large  hotels andleadingrrestaurahts the  chef is n&Pe."x   ,^.u,>'  ��� ,'.;r" And  yet probably  the /worst  cooks in-the worid* are of the  same species. I refer, of course,  to" those beaten little men who:.  have got into the frightful rut  of taking breakfast to  bed for  I WAITED patiently for the  Lord; and He inclined unto  me, and heard my cry. He brought  me up also out of a horrible pit,  out of the miry clay, and set my  feet upon a rock, and established  my goings: And He hath put a  new song in my mouth, even  praise .unto our God; many shall  see it, and fear, and shall trust  in the Lord. Blessed is that man  that maketh the Lord his trust,  and respecteth not the proud,  nor such, as turn aside to lies.  Many, O Lord my God, are Thy  wonderful works which Thou  hast done, and Thy thoughts  which are to us-Ward: they cannot be reckoned up in order unto Thee: if I would declare and  speak of them, they are more  than can be numbered. Sacrifice  and offering Thou didst not desire; mine ears hast Thou opened:  burnt offering and sin offering  hast Thou not required. Then said  I, Lo, I come: in the volume of  the book it is written to me, I  delight to do Thy will, O my  God: yea, Thy law is within my  heart.  Let  all  those  that  seek  Thee  rejoice and be glad in Thee: let  such as love Thy salvation say  continually, The Lord be magnified.

Can people actually be scared  to death? Medical" science says,  "Yes���in a multitude of ways."  Perhaps the most deadly form of  fear is that which holds a person back from seeking early professional attention for an ailment.  One of the worst features of cancer, for instance, is the, fear it  instils   into  people.. Cancer   can  be cured, in most cases* and this  ' is true of the majority of troubles.  But all have to be attacked early.  The thing,to dread, say the doctors, is not the disease itself but  the fear which paralyses; the initiative to do the 6bvious--that is,  to get help to fight it, at 'oxice.  friendship she has offered ipr so  many years.

Hello folks���another; week and  I'm afraid it's going to be a one-  item weekly news, for if I put in  j half of what I should'put in about  our Community Party there'll be  no room for anything else. But  ; f 11 do my best!  *    *    *  Our beach party in honor of  Mr. and Mrs; C. P. Browning was  a work of art. I can't begin to  thank all those who >vvere responsible for such a grand evening, an  evening- everyone will be talking  about for-years to come.  , Joe Dunbar, Dave Clarke and'  Gordon Mousey deserve a big  _hahd and a vote of thanks for  (decorating the hall so beautifully.  Decorated in the Valentine motif,  jWith big red hearts, each with a  iinotto on, such as "Till we meet  again," or "C.P;, if you starve,  .send us an SOS." (I'll bet he'll  dp'that before long!)  Tables were set for 250 and  lary a chair empty. They formed  pur long tables the length of the  iall and one across the width,  vith Valeiitine napkins, dishes of  :^ndy, etc. Doors opened at 8 p.  h. and the program started at  .30, Our Jack Balder son was m.  (meaning 'mostly corny') but  ie was very good.  Program included several  umbers by the Beach Trio, Andy  ?roudfpot, Johnny McDonald and  Ob Carter. They were well ap-  lauded and later returned.  A skit put oh by the Ladies'  id, Bess Knight and Marg Rob-  ison, showed a scene at Horse*-  loe Bay, where a Boy Scout  aited for Bonnabelle. It Wjas  ell acted and indicates we may  aye to keep our eye on Bess and  ie Ritz^  It's always a: treat to hear Pur  vonne and Sven Anderson on  ie piano, and they got a big  and. A skit by four office, spin-  :ers, "If Men Played Cards Like  adies" showed George Deacon;  ick Kennedy, Don McGregor  id George Hurley. Listening to  iem makes me think when their;  rives have bridges they must  leak under the bed and listen in  else they have stooges who. get  1 the dirt for ;them^sp6cially  iie Dave Clarks and poor Wes  amiltori. If he reduces, 111 .be,  limming myself.  J Last but not. least was a skit  kitten by Mrs: Edith Fleming,  jjr: the Beach LadUL^  think Edith deserves a lot of  praise and congratulation to produce a skit like that. The following appeared on the stage,  dressed to represent their parts:  Doris Looyen as Fitzpatricfc Olive Bastu as Dubberly, Elsie Bal-  derson as a very good double for  Bob Swan, Mrs. Chisholm as a  mill worker, Lil Mounsey for the  foundry, Dot Carter as a miner,  Flo Verdisio as Jimmy Middleton,  Doreen Clark as -a carpenter. The  theme was the introduction of a  new man (Ada Murray) to each  department. Sach gave a song  referring to their department, although some seemed to be held  down with too-large pants. The  plumber had to haul hers up with  the hammer. All; parts were well  played, and the cast ended up by  singing Aloha, after which the  entire hall joined in the same  tune with these words���  Soon will come the Tiour when  we must part,  And from the bottom of our  , '"��� hearts;Xx'..  We sincerely say 'God Bless  And bring you every happiness.  Farewell^ dear friends, may  heaven send  Her rays of sunshine o'er you.  Remevribered  still,   where'er  _i_';:..     you bey  Witliiit memories  Then Gordon Mounsey, president of the Beach Club took over  the mike and gave a very good  speech and presented the guest  of honor with a chest of silver  and a huge leather album. Mr.  Dpbberly took pictures all evening^ which are going into the. al-  bum.jv Mr. Browning's .. speech  came' from the bottom of his  heart, too; Mrs. Browning was  with him on the stage and made  a charming picture.  A grand supper was served,  with scads and scads of homemade cakes, cookies, sandwiches  and all the trimmings. Later, we  danced to grand music supplied  by Bill Hatch's orchestra. At one  a.m. everyone went to the Guest  House with the Brownings and  .then, sang^ Auld Lqjig JSyne.      ;|,  It was a grand evening and ev-  .eryone put their heart and soul  into it. We trust the Brownings  will have a lot of happy memories. When they left on Sunday,  the wharf looked like Bowen Island in August.;  I hope from time to time to be  able to give you a write-up oh  their "Life in a Trailer."       t,  Their son, Oliver, and his Mrs.  were lip for the party and are  staying with Mr. and Mrs. Stah  6Adams. Ronnie Charlton and his  wife were also up.^  By BROWNIE  ______e___a  ONE MORE I take my pen in  hand and sticn my necn out  and utter my famous last words  to say, "what this country needs  is a few days of Rain," too much  clear cold weather doesn't agree  with us web-footed people of the  west coast.

We were all unanimous in our vote for Chucn  Royal as president and Alice  Jacnson as treasurer of this five  person committee with Tec. Jackson as chairman.

We were invited to May and  Tom Matthias' place last Saturday for dinner and had a very  pleasant evening starting with  every one,    including   the   three  boys, Kenny, Jimmy and Tommy, testing their aim at the  dart board, after which the  adults finished the evening off  with cards.
