On April 3, 1947, His Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of  the Legislative Assembly of the Provincei of British Columbia, enacted  the Government Liauor Act Amendment Act J?y >rliiclr the Minister? of ?  Education was required to institute a programmed  A SCIENTIFIC EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMMlfjS DESIRABLE  The use of alcoholic beverages by society has existed for thousands of  years in all countries, despite legal and social attempts to prohibt it.  The abuse of the custom of drinking present; many undesirable  social, personal and economic problems.  The characteristics of modern society with its stresses and strains of  living have increased the* magnitude and complexity of the problems of  alcohol* *  The most hopeful approach today for improving the folkways and  legal enactments in respect of the use of alcohol lies in a sound and  scientific educational programme.  THE PROGRAMME FOR YOUNG PEOPLE  Thousands of our young people are graduating from our schools into  a world in which alcohol is widely used as a beverage. Many of them will:  face the prbolem of adopting or avoiding a social custom wliicb they;  may have been told is dangerous but which seems to be acceptable to  a large number of citizens.  The programme will presents through  all available media  and  in a  factual, impersonal and positive manner, the latest available scientific  findings concerning alcohol.  In presenting this information definite steps will be taken in respect  of the following:  Not  to  convey  the   impression   that   moderate' or   temperate  drinking is a worthy habit for young people.  Not to undermine the influence of an essentially good home  in which alcohol is used.  Not to/use exaggeration, over-emphasis, exhortation or other  similar approaches.  Not to present the student with preconceived; conclusions concerning alcohol.  The student will be given such information as will enable him, with  the advice of his parents, to form his own coclusions when years of  discretion ore reached.  This programme of alcohol education must not be viewed as a campaign.   If* is hoped.that it will be a Bong-term educational effort.  It is not to be regarded as the only solution to all the problems of  intemperance. Nor is it directed towards achieving legal enactments  respecting the custom of drinking.  It is an educational programme and, despite its -imitations, it is  considered by most authorities to be a necessary and fundamental part  of any progress towards a solution of the problems of alcohol.  I�� is hoped that as a result of such a programme as this, there will  bea definite trend towards sobriety.

The freshness and purity of the  air is like a tonic and makes  one feel like going places.  , Watching the crows gathering at  their usual yearly rendezvous  among the trees on the "Reserve" prior to their departure  for the south, makes one .wish,  for wings to be able to go along  with them. It is always thrilling  to see a flock of birds on the  wing.  We are glad to state that the  postal arrangements have been  eased a bit by two extra deliveries, which gives us mail four  times a week until further notice.  On Sunday Mr. and Mrs. W.

We are  sorry to hear of the accident  that happened to one of our  members, Mrs. Gibb. She was  badly cut on the chin and had  to have some teeth removed after a fall she got while wheeling  a barrow in the garden. We hope  she will soon recover from the  shock.

Another visitor whom I have not see*?  around these parts before is  Hans Myaska, who stayed with  his parents on the waterfront.  His father is still here and seems  to be having a kind of a busman's holiday. As you know, he  is ta commercial fisherman, goes  after tuna fish. He spends most  of his time fishing in the Bay.  and the last I saw of him, he was  giving out big juicy salmon  steaks to many of the neighbours.  Yes, there must be fish in our  bay.  Mr. Hector Macleod, who is  on the staff of the Vancouver  Sun, arrived here to complete  the remainder of his holidays.  Mrs. Macleod is expected to arrive here during the week to  spend a few days at the camp,  and Bob, the youngest of the  clan, has returned to school in  Vancouver after an absence of  a couple of years.

SARAH  THE   COMBINED   school board,  teachers  and PTA  of District  46 met at Pender Harbor School  in one of the most enjoyable and  informative   gatherings    it     has.  been my good fortune to attend.  Many aspects of rural community life were touched'upon, and  the more and more serious and  personal  problems   of  children's  teeth,  recreation,  telephone service   (or rather lack of it after  10 p.m. in most places.) Roads and  lack  of roads   etc.   To   see   and  meet so many men and women,  who  had  travelled  miles  under  difficult   conditions,   banded   together   for   the   common   good,  and  to  reach  a   better    understanding of their neighbor's problems.  To  me   is    a    heartening,  sight. We intend to  meet again.  in  Sechelt  in  the  early  spring,  and perhaps form a PTA Council.  We  have a good beginning,  so,  forward, march.  Noticed in the Harbor Don  Cameron's "Colonial Packers"  fish buying scow, and scads of  boats both "old timers and new  faces. Saw Alec Aitchison there,  so I suppose he and Dolly are  back with us again.  Bill Davis arrived Saturday  towed his home down from  Klemter and has. gone on to  Vancouver to pick up Marge and  the kids. They have been absent from the Harbor for over  a year, and it sure will be swell  to welcome them "home" again..  There is to be a VON Auxiliary  (nee Copeland) wsa married on  Thursday night so we wish you  the best of luck.  Mrs. Tom Wells and the twins  are home after a^ week in Vancouver.  Mr. and Mrs. J.

I  was lucky enough to win a $6  plastic  purse ~~ <all ������ I  neeiSX is  the~  money to put in it?). Candy and  cigarettes were plentiful, coffee and doughtnuts being served after. It was nice to see such  a big turnout from the townsite.  and they sure didn't go home  empty handed.  Mrs. Gord Mounsey had 10  in for Bingo on Friday night,  all of us winning lovely prizes  two or three times.  Had a letter from George Taylor and he is getting along fine  and is on crutches already. Good  luck George.  Well winter is here, why, because we took our yacht out of  the water. I sure hated to see it  finally come out.  Lost���one pet lizard. Lorraine  Mable has lost one of hers, so if  you feel something cold in bed,;  just take a peep and see.

This is the kind of co-operation we appreciate and is  what is making Gibsons the*  distribution centre or :tnis wmei  area.  Unfortunately the settlement  of the problems of Gambier  Harbour still leaves us up in the  air on the question of how unfortunate people of East Bay,  West Bay and Centre Bay are to  receive their supplies, mail and  how they are to travel when;  they wish to withdraw from the  seclusion now thrust upon them  by the stoppage of Union service.  A mass meeting was held at  The Veterans Memorial Hall,  Gambier- Harbour on Tuesday,  September 21 under the chairmanship of Capt. Francis Drage,*  J.P. to consider this matter. The  meeting appointed a committee  to act for these points with  Chairman Major O. M. Pickard.  Secretary Harry Warn and members Joe Mitchell, C. Poore, R.  Singleton-Gates and K. C. Alexander. This committee then  placed in circulation a petitiojf  to the Postmaster General ask- .  ing for rural mail delivery service  to these  sttlements.  We had the pleasure of a visit  in the early part of September  from our Provincial President,  Major George Styles and the  Officers of the Provincial Command. A very excellent supper  was served hy Mrs. F. Bourne  in the club rooms and a thoroughly enjoyable time was had  by our executive council , who  were hosts at the supper. Major  George Styles, in complimenting  the Unit, stated that never in the  history.of Canada had any Veterans Unit accomplished sp much  in such a very short time. We  value that compliment from a  distinguished soldier like Major  Styles. .   '  The Executive Council of the  Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans will hold their next meeting September 27.   at 7 p.m.  At the beginning of October I  will be travelling to Victoria to .  attend a Dominion Convention  of the Oldest Veterans organization in the world the Army, Navy  and Air Force Veterans, founded in 1940.
