Alfie  and his wife Jean were visiting  Gibsons for a week's holiday.  They make their home at Tex-  ada Island, where they returned  last week. Herb Winn is Babe's  godfather.  BLUE BABY NOTES  ( The ladies Monday Club held  a sale of home cooking and a tea  at Merry Ern Cafe, realizing the  handsome sum of over $70. A  hamper of groceries was raffled  and Mrs. C. Gray was the lucky  lady. She has turned the hamper over to flood relief. The ladies have also turned over the  sum of $24 that they had in the  kitty, intending to have a turkey  supper at the end of their club  series, and so making a nice sum  to be turned into the fund. "Orchids to the ladies. They had a  grand turn-out at Gambier for  the benefit dance in aid of the  fund. The Machiogonne carried  over 100 passengers, in addition  to all that went in other boats.

FLOOD RELIEF NOTES  A meeting was called of all  representatives of the district to  deal with the question of a donation to flood relief. It was decided that a raffle will be held,  with every organization backing  the project, and a prize of $25  will be jput on the tickets, which  sell at 50 cents each. A thorough  canvass of the district will be  held, and rather than have each  organization hold a ' separate  function it was felt that one big  drive would be much easier on  all concerned . . . Yes, we know  it's getting monotonous, these  calls on you, and the people that  are doing the job dislike it as  much as you do. We are all asked  to help . . Naturally if you have  not got it, you can't give it, but  if you can, then your help will  be appreciated. If you wish to  donate, you can do so at the bank  or aft flood relief headquarters,  which are set up in Mr. MacPher-  son's real estate office. Cliff  Gray is chairman of the fund, and  Jim Drummond is secretary-  treasurer. As soon as money is  received, it will be forwarded  every day into Vancouver. This  way, money will start to leave  Gibsons at once.  The Legion held a cabaret and  dance Friday night and turned  the proceeds over to flood relief.  Bal held a dance Saturday night  and proceeds there also went to  the same. If anyone wishes to  hold any social to raise funds for  this worthy cause, then it will be  very welcome. But to prevent overlapping, it was felt that our  first plan of a concerted drive  was the best way to get everyone  in on this.  NOTES RE BATHING .HERE  Called Dr. Hugh Inglis, sanitation inspector, re bathing on our  beaches here. He assured me that  up to now there is no danger. He  feels we are far enough away  from the danger zone. Unless  .carcasses are washed up on the  beach to pollute waters, then he  sees no reason why children cannot swim in waters here. He said  that we were at least 20 miles  from the danger zone of pollution, and unless we were notified  to the contrary, children should  be ok.  THIS Tf THAT  Our constable tells me we are  gonna get a few traffic signals,  and when they get around it's  going to be quite a problem for  cars to find a parking place, so  watch for 'em, boys.  Rev. Horn has gone into Vancouver Hospital for another operation . . sorry to hear this. .And.  Dougie Davies. our first swimming casualty, had both his feet  cut down on the municipal beach.  It's pretty bad around there until  that beach gets cleaned up a bit.  It's very easy in winter to throw  everything in the water, from  soup to nuts, as the water is quite?  deep. But, comes summer, and  the things that come in at low.  tide are something else again.  Watch the glass, kids. Our boys  have all the fixings for a bugle  band. Junior Legionaires are all  set to get going on practices. Leader is Norm Stewart and Richie  Norris, and he is looking for a  spot where boys can blow bugles  to''their heart's content. If you  hear some weird sounds from the  Glen down here, it's one of my  boys practising bugle calls, where  the other boy is going to practice  on the drum, well we haven't decided yet. Anyway it is to be  hoped by next fall that they will  be well on the way to a real boy's  band. Thanks to Harry Gough,  our senior boys ball team is having some tough games lately.  Played Sechelt last week and  lost, then went over to Bowen  Island, being short some players  lost again and also lost to Port  Mellon on Sunday. Bob Murray  is on the sick list and with some  of their players unable to get out  they sure are having it tough.  Never mind boys it's early yet,  remember a poor start, a good  finish.  I hear we are going to have a  new captain on the Machigonne.  They tell me, it will be Captain  Gillespie from Gower Point.  Members of the Legion & Women's Auxiliary held a memorial  day service at Seaview cemetery  in memory of war dead and  placed flowers on the Cenotaph  and graves. Rev. Moore read the  service  assisted  by J.  Marshall.  I hear there may be wedding  bells for one of our senior citizens pretty soon.  I hear Wally Peterson and Cattanach have taken over the  home, and will operate it as a  guest house, we can certainly  use it. One thing we are short of  is places for people to Stay.

They  enjoyed their trip west, and spoke  of the beauty of the scenery and  the lovely flowers they have  seen throughout their trip, but  Mr.  Haggarty says  that he has  never seen anything in the west  to surpass the gorgeous sight of  the St. John river iri the fall.  Another couple who are being  held up by the floods are Mr. and  Mrs. Don Poole who were married on May 24, and are expected  to spend their honeymoon at  Banff and Lake Louise..., They  were turned back at Seattle and  were just lucky enough to get  through "some* of the roads ahead  of the flood. They were visitors  yesterday at Granthajn's Landing. When travelling conditions  are restored they hope to spend  their interrupted honeymoon at  Banff.
