C.._  Friday, July 16, 1948  8  by Jack Scott  THOSE MEDALS  AN ARMY officer friend here on  leave from Ottawa headquarters tells me the Royal Mint is  going full blast, lickety-split on  the vital business of making medals.  ���  Mass production techniques  have had to be used and great  numbers of skilled workers are  employed, using miles of silver,  acres of bright ribbon, tons of  precious metal. About three million medals, more than a third of  them commemorating nothing  more than the fact that a man  joined the army, are being struck.  My friend, who, himself, wears  six ribbons, takes the view that  it might be better to forget the  medals for a while and maybe  turn the mint over to manufacturing say, prefabricated homes,  an item still much more urgently  needed by veterans.  None of the news stories seems  to have given any estimate of the  cost of this undertaking, as I noticed in checking through the  files, but it's probably safe to say  that it will, run into the millions.  MISUNDERSTOOD  RACKET  This medal business generally  seems tb be one that's misunder-  ' stood.     Perhaps    some    passing  comments either will be of value  or merely add to the confusion.

' . ���Canadian Pacific Railway Photos  :ALS ON WHEELS: In the early days of the Canadian Pacific Railway the experienced  traveller ate his five and six-bourse meals in the truly Victorian atmosphere of the  ling car shown at left; he would= be surprised and bewildered today if he boarded one  the C.P.R.'s sleek modern diners such as the one in the right-hand picture. For more  in 60 years the Canadian Pacific has owned and operated its own sleeping, dining and  jrlor cars, the only large line on the continent to have done so for so long. xEven before  railway was pushed through to the Pacific there were 51 cars of these types in service���-  there" are close to 700. In the 1880's the dining cars Were said to be "beyond compari-  in style and finish, where travellers will find all the delicacies of the season at their  .and for the nominal charge^of 75 cents". Dining cars were cheap to build in those days  costing about $10,000 compared to the $140,000 the C.P.R. must spend for a modern  |el diner today.  and two youngsters, visiting at  their home for the summer.

The importance of the soybean  in America is evidenced by the  fact that production in 1947 was  20 times that of 1930. Page Eight  THE COAST NEWS, SECHELT, B. C.  Friday; July 16, 1948  By ROBBIE  The Canadian Legion and W.  A. gave a welcome party for Mr.  and Mrs. Harry Gaines, who recently arrived in Wilson Creek  to take up permanent residence.  Harry was quite active in the  West Vancouyer branch of the  Legion, while Mrs. Gaines was a  very energetic worker in the W.  A. and during the war years was  responsible for. the. sending of  cigarettes and tobacco ���- overseas  to our troops. On leaving West  Vancouver Harry was presented  with a gift from the Legion and  Mrs. Gaines received a beautiful  bouquet.  So, once again, we say 'Welcome!' to our new neighbors.  Mrs. Levett of Wilson Creek  was hostess to her sister from  Los Angeles during the past few  days. Her sister, Mrs. G. Nevin,  has purchased a cottage at Roberts Creek and intends to make  a yearly trip up to these parts.  I see Ronnie Whittaker is branching out into the cafeteria  line. He has installed a coffee  and soft drink counter at the end  of his store, the Trading Post.  There you will find a fine selection of soft drinks, ice cream,  coffee and sandwiches.  Wilson Creek at the present  time has its capacity quota of  summer visitors and as I stated  here last week we all would like  to know who's who and what's  what. The most convenient way  to find out is when you���the reader���drops a line in Section R of  ithe mail box at the Trading Post  to tell us who's visiting and who's  gone away.  We want to know!  Mr. and Mrs. Garnett Innis and  son George sepnt a few days at  the home of his uncle Archie, and  were joined later in the "week by  the latter's brother, from Mission. ,.. ���>  :  Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Morley  entertained  their  youngest  dau  ghter, Mrs. G. M. McKellar and  grand-daughter Susan, both of  Vancouver.  Mr. Sidney Humphrey of Seattle, a well-known portrait  painter, was' also a visitor to the  Morley residence. I hope to interview him in the near future,  because I know that what he has  to say of his life history will be  of considerable interest to our  readers. x  Mrs. Walt Smith and her two  sons, Jerry and Jack, are staying  at Wilson Creels for a few weeks.  Mr. arid Mrs.. Jaqk McLeod and  their children left for Vanc'ou--  ver, where they intend to settle  up their affairs preparatory to  returning to Wilson Creek. Jack  has purchased a residence and  intends to live here. He will be  representative for the Watkins  Company.  Mrs. Barbara Shelly and her  three children are staying at the  Baird residence for two.. weeks.  Quite a story could be written  about the acitvities of many of  the residents of Wilson Creek,  and as a matter of fact this story  is one reason why I advocated a  community .center for 'this district.  How does the following list  appeal to. you as an example of  executive  ability?  W. H. Aggett, Board oi Trade  president; L. S. Jackson, Ratepayers' president; C. Bookman,  Canadian Legion president; Mrs.  L. S. Jackson, School Board president.  For the committee-���Mrs. C.  Brookman, Canadian Legion 1st  vice-president; Mrs. T. Turner,  Legion WA secretary-treasurer;  Mrs. Renton, Credit Union secretary-treasurer; Mrs. R. L. Jackson, Credit Union clerk; Mr. L.  Forbes arid R. L. Jackson, executive members of the C. U.; Mrs.  Stan Arbo, VON secretary treasurer; R. L, Jackson, Boy Scout  chairman; T. Turner and George*  Wright, Canadian Legion executive; H. Roberts, entertainment  committee chairman.  When one considers the above  list it should make a person feel  justly proud of the extended activities of our neighbors. And so  we say with meaning���keep up  the good work, folks!
