The passengers and  officers   mingled   in   the   dining  room, and in the lounge above,  cleared as a dance floor, our ship  had used its lounge as a theatre  coming up the coast.

At Terrace we diverted for half an  hour to see the famous one-and-  a-half-million dollar unused airport. A magnificent road took us  to the plateau where we found  an airport similar in style to  Sea Island port, concrete runways. 100 feet wide and extending a mile out from us. Unfortunately the airforce officials sent  out to open the place didn't like  the wind currents, and condemned it instead. Only small private  planes have used it.  From Terrace to Smithers,  next objective of our trip was  135 miles, in addition to the 95  we had already travelled. This  turned out to be the worst part  of our entire trip.  The road narrowed down to  one and half lanes wide. It  twisted, jerked, went up and  down, crept around mountain  sides, and featured rock, sand,  gravel, mud and gumbo surfaces  in different parts. The scenery  was marvelous, but there was  such a terrifying interest in  keeping your eyes glued to the  road that much scenery was  passed unobserved. Rock, gravel  and shale slide areas were encountered frequently and passed  over gingerly. Washout repairs  were also frequent hairpin  turns tested the steering of any  car. Similar thrills and rides in  Happyland would have cost a  small fortune.

RENNIE  THOUGH this is still September,  when we should be enjoying  the best part of the season,  "the weather man" is evidently  hurrying on the Fall. With a  sou'wester blowing and a rough  sea running today and no Union  Steamship boat calling until  Thursday, Granthams has suddenly taken on its winter appearance. But in spite of all  that there are still visitors coming and going.  One visitor who enjoyed being at Granthams was Ralph  Fisher. He spent the last month  at his home here with his mother  Mrs. Fisher enjoying a well  earned rest. For almost a year  he was studying electrical aerial  work. He spent nine months at  H.M.S. "Airier" Navy Electrical  England. Also three weeks at  College, North Warrington,  Culdrose Airiel Station England,  and three weeks at an Airiel  Station in Northern Ireland. He  is now on his way to Halifax  to take up his position as Electrical Air Officer on the new  aircraft   carrier   "Magnificent."  Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Horn from  Winnipeg were visiting Mr_s.

New Hazelton consists of gas  station, post office, and a couple  of stores, from aU we saw of it.  We reached Smithers about 6  p.m. after leaving Prince Rupert,  230 miles,west .about 9 a.m., and  included an Hour for lunch at  Terrace. This was considered  very good travelling time, and  it required continued pushing of  driving ability to maintain a respectable average over the stretch  from Terrace to Smithers.

The residents of Soames Point  and Granthams Landing extend  sincere sympathy to Dr. and  Mrs. Lang in the passing of Miss  Howard sister of Mrs. Lang.  Miss Howard was well known  and esteemed by the residents  here for many years.  On Monday afternoon Sept.  20th Mrs. L. Steadman entertained the local members of the  V.O.N, to tea.

Page Five  By ROBBIE  REMINESCENT of bygone days  ���were the sounds of a couple  of battle-wagons at Wilsons  Creek last week. Target practice and gunnery drill were the  order of the day and several of  the old sweats were on hand to  give the neighbours the low-  down. Directly in front of my  place, and with a powerful pair  of submarine glasses, we could  distinguish the hits and misses  of two powerful Canadian destroyers. Further up the road,  one neighbour stated her windows rattled and dishes banged  together. But fortunately no  casualties  were reported.  Miss Lillian Nydska who  works at the "Estimates Dept."  of Civil Service, New Westminster,, spent two weeks at her'parents summer home returning to  town on Sunday.  Mr. Jack Baird came up from  the city to break up camp for  the season, taking his wife and  two sons back to  Vancouver.  Mrs. J. L. Renton of Vancouver spent a happy week at the  home of her son Jimmy and his  wife. Incidentally Jimmy has  taken possession of his new  home "The Cottage" at Davis  Bay.  If a< job is- worth doing, do it  yourself. I received the full  force of that old saying last  week, when the envelope containing last week's "Wilsons-  Creek" column, was returned to  me several days after deadline.  However I'm sorry folks, but  that won't happen again. Ed.  Note: (We have been wondering what happened too).  I also regret the fact that up  to the��� present Ttime I have not  received any names for the  dramatic club. Well opportunity  only knocks once.  __  Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Maywood  with   their   daughter   have   left  Roberts Creek to live at Davis  Bay, and are now staying at  "Trails End." Mr. Maywood has  purchased some land in the adjacent vicinity and expects to  build a new home and settle  permanently at Wilsons Creek.  Mr. and Mrs. A. Matheson of  Vancouver are spending a pleasant holiday at the home of Mrs.  G. Reid of Davis Bay. Also at  the Reid residence for a few  days are Mr. and Mrs. Harry  Kirkham, of West Sechelt.'  Mrs. J. Marvin spent a week  at the home of her parents at  Marpole, and returned with her  mother Mrs. M. Sevigny, who  is taking a holiday here at Davis Bay. Also.in the party for the  weekend was Miss Marion Griffin. Miss Griffin is the secretary  and accountant at Murray Plywood  Company.  Welcome hands were extended to Mrs. R. L. Jackson, who  returned home from P��nder  Harbour this week bringing  with her, Pamela Joan, her  baby, daughter, who was born  at St. Marys Hospital on August 26th. Pam weighed 6 pounds  13 ounces and at the time of  writing both Leslie and Pam  were  in  the  pink  of condition.  Mr. and Mrs. Voice with their  two children Darlene and Ricky,  are spending a few days at  "Coolshannon" with Mr. and  Mrs.   Chas.   Brookman.  Mrs. Bogart has returned  from a visit with her son-in-law  and daughter, Mr. and Mrs.  Mason of ^ Vancouver.  I suppose the steamship companies sometimes think along  the same lines as the writer.

Mrs. Donnelly has returned  home   after   visiting   with   her  Chilliwack, who with her husband was reported in this column  for their splendid work during  the flood season recently, is  spending three weeks holidaying with her parents, Mr. and  Mrs. Ted Norburn of Davis Bay.  Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Jones of  Vancouver, and Ron Eric have  closed camp and returned home  to the city.  Comes a time when we must  say goodbye to the best of  friends and neighbours, as happens in the case of Harry Morley and his wife. Within a few  days after this publication, they  will be boarding the boat for  Vancouver and a new home.  Harry's jovial personality will  be missed along the waterfront  by many.of his friends. The reason for his sudden and surprising decision is the health of Mrs.  Morley, who by the way lias  just returned from a week's  visit to her daughter in the city,  May we take this opportunity  of sincerely wishing the Mor-  leys, good luck and "bon voyage."  family   in   Nanaimo.  Mrs. John Daly and two sons  are home again after a visit to  Alert Bay and Vancouver.  Mrs. E. Blake of Vancouver  whose daughter-in-law, Mrs. A.

They are building  an attractive home North and on  the east side of Gun Boat pass.  Their property fronts on the  water and also to the highway.  Mr. and Mrs. Gibson, Silver  Sands, were visitors to Vancouver the first part of the week.  Mr. BiH Sinclair, arrived home  the first of the week, after a 4  months sojourn in the fishing  waters of B.C.  Mrs. Don Cameron has returned to the Harbour after a  short stay in Vancouver. Don is  expected   home  in   about   three  weeks.  In Pender Harbour are located four general stores. Falconers, Murdocks, Hassens, and A.  Lloyds.

Up to the  time of going to press it was  not learned how he fared on  the journey, or of his condition  on arrival at the hospital, for it  will be remembered that an unfortunate mishap occurred to  the boat on which he was to  have travelled, and hurried preparations had to be made for him  to travel by Grahams coach to  Gibsons.

NESTMAN  BOARD OF TRADE NOTES  At the monthly meeting of  the Board of Trade at Gibsons,  the coming winter schedule of  the USS Co., was taken under  discussion. The question of mail,  a very pertinent subject, occupied most of the debate. It  was felt that there might be  other ways and means of getting the mail to and from Gibsons, daily. Trades and Industry,  headed by chairman Doctor  Anderson will take the matter  up and report at next meeting  in October. A very favorable  report was given on the float  entered in the PNE, by business  men of Gibsons - - very good  advertising for the village. Mr.  F. French of Gibsons was the  winner in the flood relief draw  sponsored by the Board.  COUNCIL NOTES  At a meeting of the Council  further discussion on the setting  of trucking rates for the village  was again the main subject on  the agenda. Information is to  be procured on the question of  whether  the  village    has    any  jurisdiction over the government wharf, from which the  greater bulk of freight and baggage for the village is hauled.  Until this information is in  hand, village council is unable  to set any rates for the village.  Question of obtaining pipe for  the cannery road replacement  job is also under discussion. It  is to be hoped that by next  meeting something definite may  be obtained re this pipe.  Mr. Cook of B.C. Power is  being interviewed this week re  new lights for the village, to be  installed before winter. Trouble  in the Headlands over the Labor  Day weekend was due to corrosion in part of the water pipe  in the bay. This was remedied,  and water was once more available.  W.A.
