SECHELT, B. C  Friday,   Oct,-1,   1948  MY PAL WILMA  IF THERE'S anything I like  better than a good, invigorating horseback ride these crisp  autumn - afternoons it's going  home to bed with a detective  story.    .  I have nothing, against the  horse. I like to watch them  running around race tracks in  their own- unpredictable manner. Admire the horse which  delivers our milk. Cheer good  horses against bad horses in  western movies. Horses and I  get along all right.  It is just that I see no point in  riding. around.; on top of one of  them;. My. complete, experience  with this sort of thing has been  both painful and nerve-wracking and, just incidentally, I.am  scared an attractive Nile green-  by horses... When I ride ..horses  they.turn their necks.around and  try to bite me.  All this I explain , carefully,  and with complete frankness ..to;  my enthusiastic friends.,. who",  have this lust -for. riding.  There are. times when it seems  as if friends are just a nuisance.  It would be so much simpler to  run away to a duplex, cave and  be a hermit. Some day I am going to take out my card in the  Hermits' Union and save myself  a lot of worry.  I was still ^protesting .this;way  when they bore me off in the  direction of the- stables, enthusiastically promising an afternoon of great < sport. It was so  sudden that I barely had; time  to slip a bottle of Sloans' Lina-  ment in my pbcket.  The ^stable man was as good  as his word. I asked him for,  the. oldest, quietest horse on the  premises. He led out Wilma. Wil- ���  ma", came reluctantly. I am sure  she; too, would rather have just  spent;the afternoon in .bed with  a   good  book.  She was originally- -white. ���- But  ��� along life's1 highways - Wiliria^ had 7  become a tattle-tale grey. There  was a resigned, disinterested look  about her. She looked like the5  kind of horse who might just <  suddenly decide to lie '��� down on  one elbow and yawn.  As soon as we ^were mounted-  my friends went-cantering briskly off up the road.-1 gave Wilma  a timid t boot in the ribs, whispered "Giddyup" and Wilma,  with- an almost human sigh,  began waddling painfully away  from the stables. Almost immediately every tiny muscle in  my body started, .beating its fists7  and screaming.  We had gone a hundred yards  or so when Wilma came abreast  of a lawn on which-three ladies r  were sitting at a garden table,  sipping tea in the warm afternoon sun. Wilma came to a dead  halt then ambled" over to ; the  fence and stood there, staring at  the  ladies.  The.ladies stared back,rfriendly but curious.. I gave- Wilma a  good one -in. .the, .ribs. She turned ,  her neck to me and got... a dirty  look in .her< eye. "Lovely day,"  I sang, out..,.tos the ladies. Wilma  stood .there.: "Great country around-, here," I said, airily waving a hand at the- countryside  and nearly falling out of the  saddle..  It looked as if we would all  run out of conversation at any,  moment.- Then one of the. ladies  got up and came over to us. "I  think she.just wants a lump of  sugar," she suggested, making  this offering; to . Wilma. "I  thought perhaps you'd invited  her for tea," I said,, as we got  under way again.  It   was possibly   a   half  hour  later,   having., gone   a   full   half  mile from the stables,  that my  muscles   and   I   talked   it   oyer  and decided to cry "uncle." By.  this time the saddle Jiad slipped  rakishly to one. side, and I was  clinging to it in a pose suggesting that I was preparing to pick  up a handkerchief in my teeth.  I  gave Wilma  the  signal    to  turn   around,  the   first  one  she  obeyed "witntftii* ^question.

The  tea room staff put on a dance  and- party on Saturday, Sept.  11th. Quite a number attended  and all had a good time.  Mrs. H. Coles of Trout Lake  Valley is away to Winnipeg for  a month-to visit with her sister.  Sorry to hear that Mrs. H.  Hoskins   fell   at   her   home   and  while she flexed her muscles  and quivered and then we were  off > at a dead gallop and more  or less together most of the way.  Wilma was going home.  broke her  arm.  Hope  she    will  soon be alright again.  We have a new teacher here  this term by name Miss Rose  Beattie. Hope she likes Bowen  and will have a happy time here.  Mr. and Mrs. Pete LaBrie have  moved to Whitecliff after living  here for  about  fifteen  months.  Bob Callaghan has gone to  Westminster to High School. As  we haven't enough pupils to  have another teacher here. It  seems unfortunate that since  the two room school has been  built that we7 haven't been able  to accommodate high school  pupils who have had to take  correspondence.  The First Aid station closed  down last week and "Doctor"  Tom Smith^has returned to Vancouver for the/winter. We hope  to welcome him back next  spring.  Mr. George Ward (the manager of the Bowen Store) nasi  just returned after a two week  vacation to Qualicum and the  interior. Kelowna, Kamloops etc.,  and has now settled back 'to  work for the winter.  Quite  a  little  excitement  was  aroused   here   last     week.     Tlie  rumour  went  around  that  Bing  Crosby was coming here with a  fishing party. Well, the party, arrived but no Bing, too bad.  The Ratepayers Association of  Bowen held a meeting on Sept.  j24th in the school. Quite a large  gathering was there. They are  hoping to get a resident doctor  for the Island, so we hope their  efforts  are  successful.  Commencing on October 3rd  the services at the United Church  will be at 2.30 p.m. for the winter months. We are. expecting a  new. student.

THEN PETER opened his mouth,  and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respector of  persons: But in every nation he  that feareth Him, and worketh  righteousness, is accepted with  Him. The word which God sent  unto the children of Israel,  preaching peace by Jesus Christ:  (He is Lord of all:) That word,  I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea,  and   began   from   Galilee,     after  the baptism which John preached; How God anointed Jesus of  Nazareth with the Holy Ghost  and .with power: who went  about doing good, and healing  all that were oppressed of the  devil;  for God  was with Him.  And He commanded us to  preach unto the people, and to  testify that it is He which was  ordained of God to be the Judge  of quick and dead. To Him give  all the prophets witness, that  through His Name whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins.

A very enjoyable meeting of  the peninsula PTA's was held  with 19 members present from  Port Mellon to Pender Harbour.  Chairman for the meeting was  Mrs.   Haslam   of  Roberts   Creek.  Many problems pertaining to  PTA work  were discussed.  THE ANNUAL meeting of Sechelt , Teachers Local Federation was held at Pender Harbour  School, Sept. 25. A bus was chartered jointly by the Peninsula  PTA and the teachers.  The morning session was addressed by W. A.

Autumn has been ushered in, and  the inhabitants of Wilsons Creek  are preparing for the darker  nights and duller days. This ' is  the time of year, when column  writers have to get a move on,  in order to dig up a little news  from here and there, interesting  'enough for our readers.  I walked along the new road  y and met up with a couple of goats  tethered to a tree. Yes, they belong to Mrs. Lomas up the hill.  Further along toward the end of  the road I found that Mrs. Gibbons is living in the cottage  owned by Miss Scott. That was  somewhat of a surprise, for Mrs.  Gibbons has been living for a  number of years across the road  on the Davies property. Strolling  further along the road towards  the mill, I learned that,, if L  wished to contact any of the  boys, of the B. and J. Camp, I  would have to go to the "Totem  Lodge" where,"they. are now  dominciled. I hear they are  quite happy and taking everything in their stride. I also found  that Mr. Henry Gilbertson is at  present working up at Toba Inlet and expects to put in about  a month. Then I strolled over to  the first aid station of the B.  and J. Company. There I found  Mr. W. E. Bourne, who has worked there for several years as  first aid attendant. He holds a  double "A" certificate issued by  the B. C. F. A. Industrial Association, offices on Hastings  St. West, Vancouver. During  Mr. Bourne's term of office there  have been a surprisingly few accidents of a serious nature. A  fractured arm, fractured pelvis,  and a double fracture of the  collarbone, being the most ser-  _ious. This record can be attributed chiefly to the fact that a  meeting is held once a month to  . ;whieh the heads of departments  iand gangs attend. There, various  "Vays and means are suggested  and acted upon in order to pre-,  serve he company's clean record regarding accidents.  As an added precaution, an  inspection is held every day  from four o'clock until five.  There, any or all minor cuts and  bruises may be cleaned and  bandaged to prevent -infection,  for where can you find anything  so painful as a cedar sliwer,  which has become infected.  Mr. Bourne says he is constantly advising the men to report the  most trivial scratch or injury.  He related where such minor'  cases were ignored and which  later became so serious that the  doctor was summoned, and of  course the Workmen's Compensation Board notified. There the  whoie thing' boomerangs back to  the Company, -and the first aid  man in particular, neither of  which knows the first thing about  the mishap. If an accident occurs in the woods, the patient is  placed on  a  stretcher of which  there are nine at various points.  The first aid. man is called. The  man is transported down to the  foot of the hill by his workmates.  Placed in a crummy, and brought  to "the first aid hut, where usually the doctor is waiting.  Before coming to work for  Burns and Jackson, Mr. Bourne  was with the ImpeHal Oil  Company for over ten years. In  conclusion, this much can be  said at least, that the Burns and  Jackson Co. are to be congratulated on such a splendid record, regarding accidents and  their prevention. Both in the  woods, and at their mill and  shops.  Combining business with  pleasure, Mrs. Jack Macleod  slipped over to Vancouver for  a few days, staying at the home  of her parents.  Latest report regarding Mr.  Stewart Henderson's illness is,  no change in his condition. __&t  by the time this report rolls off  the press, his many friends from  Pender to Gibsons fervently  hope and wish for his speedy recovery.  _.  Mrs. George Walker has gone  over to the city for a few days,  to put the finishing touches on  the sale of her estate. And as an  advance notice she intends to  sail for Australia in the very  near future.  Canada Savings  Bonds Oil Sale  Qc_oberl2ih  CANADA   Savings   Loan,   Series  Three, which goes on sale  October 12, has been called "A  People's Loan," because the  Canadian people have asked  that continuance of this form of  saving  be  made  available.  By requests to employers,  asking that bonds be sold on the  Payroll Savings Plan, and by  inquiries to banks and investment houses if there would be  a Canada-Savings Loan this fall,  the nation-wide endorsation has  been given.  *The first two Canada Savings  Loans met with a magnificent  response from, all walks of life,  the Bank of Canada said, showing that Canadians recognized  the unique investment opportunity offered to them.  Only individuals we/re allowed to purchase bonds and a  limit was placed on individual  holdings in both series.-Despite  these limitations, more than  2,200,000 Canadians bought  bonds totalling $820 millions.  These enormous holdings, added to the reservoir of security  represented by Victory Bond  purchases,   give     Canadians     a  feeling of economic stability and  make them better able to face  any emergency which might  arise or to lay the foundation  for personal plans in the future.  The new series bears the rate  of 2% per cent per annum and  bonds are redeemable at face  value at any time  at any Can-  That  is   exactly   where   many  newspapermen   wish  they  were.

Your banking  transactions are not open to the eyes and  ears of your competitor, your neighbor,  your community.  In other words, the manager of your branch  bank and his whole staff are working for you.
