Drowned were: ���    ���   ��� ��� \  Rodney Dubois, 11, son of Mr.  and Mrs. Maynard Dubois, and  Ronald Marsh, 12, son of Mr. and  Mrs. James Marsh of Pender Harbour.  Bobby Brooks, a school companion who witnessed the tragedy from shore told B.C. police  that the leaky boat submerged, ,  leaving the two boys floundering  in the water.  Bobby ran to tell Oliver Dubois, brother of Rodney who was  working in the brush nearby, that  the two youngsters were in  trouble on the lake.  Rushing to the lake, Oliver  found no sign of the missing boys.  The boat, full of water, was 20  feet from shore while the oars  were discovered 50 feet off shore.  A frantic search revealed the two  lads had drowned in 12 feet of  water close to shore.������.���'.:���'���  Bear Lake, a relatively small  and sheltered piece of water,, lo��-  cated just behind Pender Harbour, was a favorite fishing spot  of the two youngsters.  An inquiry was conducted by  Coroner A. M. Inglis. x  Funeral services were at noon  Monday, at the Irvine's Landing  community hall by Rev. E.XM.  Baxter,  O.M.I.  Ronald Marsh is survived by  his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jahiejs  Marsh, a brother John, 12, an��  a baby sister, Catherine. Mr. arifl  Mrs. Marsh are former residents  of Comox.

In spite of all the non-staking  tomatoes advertised, we feel that  on the coast stout staking is well  worthwhile, and that a sloping  trellis support will help the new  self-pruning varieties.  Bush beans are popular, but  more would be used ��� at their  prime if the season was extended by making several sowings,  preferably at two-week intervals. *_S^ing rather grieedy feeders, the soil should be well enriched when preparing the., rows.
