The  car went into a skid of 66 feet,  ploughed through a log at the  roadside and skidded on a further 37 feet, coming to rest on  its:- side with a sturhp stove-ii_*  the side window.  Garage men estimated extent  of the damages'at ,$900.  The accident occurred at a  point on the upper road between  Gibsons and Sechelt, just before  the Roberts Creek turnoff.

Sudden decision of Sorg Pulp  and Paper Company to close its  Port Mellon operations came after several drastic reductions in  the price of kraft pulp, which is  the product of that mill."

THE COAST NEWS, Mon., July 4, 1949  By E. NESTMAN  THIS 'N THAT  WELL NOW that the elections  are over, we can settle down  to business, if any. Its been a  very hectic last couple of months,  with everyone fighting for their  party and candidates. Now it is  over, and we wonder what 'hit  us, with landslides all around us;  Elections are sure queer -things.  You sure can never tell, can you.  Even the weather seems to have  gone into the doldrums, we want  ed rain, well we sure got it, hope  it knows enough to quit now,  we've had enough. A few more  days, and the children will be  out of school, and under our feet  for a couple of months, life  doesn't get time to get tedious,  its just one merry round of,  something or other.  Mr. and Mrs. Bushfield they  tell me are away on their holidays.  Mrs. MacFarlene, is still in  hospital.  Mr. Matheson suffered a very  painful accident while chopping  wood. Struck a knotty piece of  wood, and severed a finger from  his hand.  Mail from Herby Winn, at Bull  Harbour. Not working too hard  up around Namu. Visited around  and met Leo Nestman, who he  says looks very well. Fishing  business agrees with the boys.  Jim Corlett is also up that way.  Len O'brien has moved up to  his new home on the Shaw road.  The cause of the water being  off Sunday was a bad leak in  the water main. Some very much  needed pipes are going to have to  be replaced. They are pretty old,  and it seems when one place  starts to go, they are all going.  The -drive, for VQN Auxiliary  funds was very satisfactory, and  the auxiliary wish to express  their very sincere thanks to all  who so kindly helped in the  drive both in canvassing for  funds, and those who so gener-  We repair, overhaul,  tune-up, etc. Passenger  cars, trucks and all me-  chanized equipment.

The new nurse,  Miss Martin will be on tne job,  and we know she will give us  the same competent service we  have always enjoyed. Don't be  afraid to call your VON nurse,  she is at your service, and only  too glad to give you her advice,  and help at any time. This is your  service, the more it is used, then  the more people will realize the  work that is being done in the  community.  Well we are finally going to  make some use of that municipal  office of ours. It will be a start  anyway. The office will be open  for the transaction of business.  Tuesday from 1 to 4.30. Wednesday from 1 to 4.30, and Saturday  afternoon from 1 to 4.30 after  July 1, so any payments of taxes,  dog licenses, business licenses,  etc., may be made at the municipal office.  The Kinsmen's beach party to  be held at the Municipal Beach,  was postponed last week, as weather looked so bad, until July 3,  but it sure doesn't look good for  this week-end. Anyway it may  clear up by-then, and we'll know  later whether they held it or not.  They tell me work is to be  started on our main highway  here any day now. Of course it  has to be aqne.in<the middle of  the summer,, preferably end of  July and the beginning of August. Why? Well it would .never  do to do the public out of sightseeing, at this time, and it makes  it easier to work for the hired  help when they have a good  crowd around. They seem to get  a delight out of seeing people  climbing over barriers, and de-  touring* around back lanes etc.  Never a dull moment in our little  community, that's what makes  life interesting I guess. They also  are going to hard-surface it���  won't that really be something!  Happy day. Well now we have  "our Jimmy" back in the saddle  we can all relax again. We are  sorry to see a friend of ours go  down to defeat, but that's the  way- it is���you can't have your  cake and eat it. And that's politics, up today, down tomorrow.  Speaking of "rain. The rain is  raining all around. It rains on  all the "nations. It rains a lot on  many things, but mostly on vacations.  Well folks,. that's it for this  week. It's raining cats and dogs  ���good for the 'garden if it lets  up.: These passing showers sometimes take a few days to pass, but  there's not much we can do about it.  SELMA PARE  By H. I. L.  (Held, over from last week)  A MOST successful and delightful afternoon was enjoyed on  Monday, June 20 by friends and  relatives of Selma Park, when  their Annual Strav/berry Tea  was held in the garden of Mrs.  J. Redman. The sun shone down  on the tables gaily decorated  with flowers and the strawberry  motif. At 4 p.m. the Strawberry  Queen (Dianne Wheeler) escorted by Pageboy Bert Sim, and  preceded by flower girls and  little Bernice Liste as crown  bearer, followed by her maids  of honor Marion Willows and  Margaret Bruyneel and ' more  flower girls, all daintily dressed  and with strawberry blossoms in  their hair, paraded through the  grounds to the decorated stand,  where she was crowned by  Dianna McColl, to the strains of  music and a clapping, admiring  audience. These little folk certainly made an exquisite picture  in their setting of blossoms and  streamers, with the ocean' as  background.  The home-cooking table did a  brisk business, as did the raffles.  Mrs. J. Parker of Sechelt was  the lucky winner of the card"  table and chair set, while Mrs.  Ken Woods took home the mystery prize.  The vice-president of the Community Centre, Mr. Fred Willows, opened the event and a  hearty vote of thanks was extended to Mrs. J. Redman for. the  use of her home and garden and  to all who had worked to make  the event such a success. Convenor Mrs. J. Redman and co-  convenor Mrs. S.'McKay wish to  personally thank all who helped  in the preparation^.  On June 15 the Selma V.O.N.  held a very successful tea at the  home bf Mrs. J. Redman. The  tea table had been set up in the  garden, but as the afternoon  turned cool, the guests moved  into the house, where the tea cup  reader was well patronized. Mrs.  Fred  Willows  won  the raffle.  Mrs. A. Clampett spent the  past week with her - daughter  and family here, Mrs. J. Redman.  Mr. and Mrs.. A. Bryson~ and  baby son have been the guests  of the latter's mother, Mrs. M.  Linesey.  One of the coolest known  forms of light is that given off  by the firefly.

A  good turnout of willing helpers  made quick work of the task and  every indication is that the club  house will soon become reality.  The purpose of the clubhouse  is to give the firemen a place to  hold social functions amongst  themselves for their own entertainment after fire practices.  There will also be provision  made for someone to sleep in  the clubhouse so that equipment  can be made ready quickly in the  event of a fire call.

BROWNIE NATURE  NOTES  We went for a drive and stopped at a boy's camp for lunch.  After we had eaten I went for a  stroll in the woods. I wandered  around for a little while looking  at the beautiful ferns and keeping my eyes open for fairy toadstools. Suddenly I saw quite a  wide path with white stones on  either side. It had an archway of  cedar logs over it. I followed  the path quite a way into the  woods and found .another archway; I had come to the end of  the path as the archway formed  a door into a lovely little chapel.  There were several moss-  covered benches facing the altar, which stood about three feet  high. It was made of smooth,  round stones with a cement slab  on top. Behind was a big cedar  stump with a white cross in front  ���laying on the ground.  In front  In This Corner ...  cf the cross, on the stones, was  painted "Purity - Truth - Kindness - Gentleness." Some of the  words' were painted on the rock  in 1942.  I wap very pleased that I had  found the chapel in the woods.  My only wish was that all the  Brownies could have seen it with  me.  ���Eleanor "Elf"  . (Eleanor is one of our older  Brownies and was so impressed  with this lovely-sounding little  chapel that she asked her mother to help her a little. Maybe  arrangements could be made for  the 1st Sechelt Brownie Pack to  visit, Eleanor. If not, you have  certainly .riven us a good word-  picture of it. ���Tawny Owl)  One day as I was going to  school I saw a bumble bee; he  was yellow and black. The bee  went b-z-z-z.

MARSHALI_!S��lHliiW  XXy- Xff^;l$p^ '-'Xy[ ''''*���'������ ���.*'"*' ''���'  .:{�����!���  Vgcst  METALS LIMITED  -Edmonton   -   Vancouver  THEY SAY that courtesy' is the  first rule of traffic safety.  I suppose there's no doubt  about' that because if every  driver was sincerely polite there  would be none of the crowding,  road-hogging and racing that are  the sources of most accidents.  Well, if all this is true, the  famed Emily Post has made a  most remarkable contribution 'to  traffic safety.  For Emily has come out with a  book called "Motor Manners"  which puts the whole business of  car driving on the basis of gentility.  Emily Post, as if you did not  know, is the good lady who is  regarded as the outstanding authority on etiquette on the North  American ��� continent.  That is to say, she is the arbiter of good manners for hoi  polloi.  I don't imagine for a minute  that she is regarded with awe  by members of the 400 who have  their own peculiar standards of  behavior.  But so far as the ordinary  plebes are concerned, she does  a rather herculean job of keeping napkins out of collar bands,  fingers out of French fried potatoes and peas off knives and no  doubt she shall have her reward  in heaven.  POINT OF BREEDING  But to get back to Mrs. Post's  new book, it will be observed  that the lady asks for better behavior in car drivers not from  the standpoint of keepingrout of  pokey nor from the standpoint of  saving life, but from the plain  arid simple standpoint of demonstrating  good  breeding;  She writes, for instance:  "A gentleman will no more  cheat a red light or stop sign  than he would cheat in a game  of cards." - y  Frankly, I doubt that. But let  it pass. ^ ���  The next item is this:  7"A courteous lady, will 'not  scold raucously -with her automobile horn any more than she  wbuld act like a fishwife at a  partv.     " '       ���   p   t  "Primitive? irresponsible, discourteous and impatient behavior  behind  the  wheel  of  an  automobile has no  place  in  society."  There is much more of it, but  this is the general idea.  KIDDING MRS. POST  Now the first impulse of any  columnist who gets hold of a  luscious tidbit like this is to have  a little fun with it.  And I must confess the idea of  kidding Emily Post is as delightfully attractive as the prospect of  pulling a chair from beneath a  stuffed shirt.'. 7  For instance, one would like to  elicit from Mrs. Post a formula  for correct behavior /when one's  horn gets stuck and' shrieks a  raucous monotone while passers-  by grin and gawk.      .  Just how does 6nV maintain  one's savoir vivre in moments  like that?  Or what is the prescribed behavior when one inadvertently  whams a pedestrian?  For there are so many highly-  bred people who find it impossible" to maintain the composure  which jg the essence of manners  when confronted with the sight  of blood.  Or what should one do if-.one's  wheels become imbedded . in a  Wildwood pot hole? Fume and  fret and curse?  Certainly not.  One merely extracts a volume  of  Marcus   Aurelius   from, one's  pocket and sits in dignity until  the engineer's department comes  around and makes repairs.  Your hair may grow grey and  your teeth may fall out while  you wait, but remember,, "Tou-  jours la politesse!" ���  Now this temptation .to be  facetious is almost irresistible.  But I am going to withstand  it manfully because I think Mrs.  Post really has something.  The people of this continent  have no great dislike for breaking the law.  No one has arrived, really, until he pr she has paid a fine or  something.  Even short terms in jail have  been accepted as part of modern  education. ..-,_  And it doesn't seem to lie very  heavily on the modern conscience to bang up other people's cars, knock over lamp posts  and even break a leg or two.    ".  But there is one thing that this  generation simply cannot endure.  And that is to be suspected of  coming from the wrong side of  the tracks.  Therefore when Mrs; Post  makes mannerly driving the  symbol of good breeding'she appeals in a highly successful manner to the . general weakness  which impels people to hope that  they will be taken for dukes'  soris-in disguise.

It leaves the impression, too widely held, that foreign trade consists in getting  rid of goods we do not want for  our own use.. That is putting the  cart before the horse.  It implies that foreign trade is  a device to get rid of a surplus  product, whereas the so-called  "surplus" was brought into existence because of the demand  created   by   foreign   trade.  Foreign trade, if it means anything, means something that is  of mutual benefit. All history  testifies to the fact that standards of living have risen as  goods and services have been  exchanged among neighbors.  ITO CHARTER IS PRACTICAL  The Charter for the International Trade Organization (ITO)),  tentatively approved about a  year ago by the United Nations  Conference on Trade and Employment, represents the most  ambitious of the many international economic agreements  concluded in the last few years.  The Charter is not a head-in-  the-clouds dream. It provides a  set of standards which will achieve the greatest possible benefits from trade in a world of  widely differing economic and  political systems, and it provides the mechanism for consultation on common problems  of commercial policy.

During the last war conscription was voted for by the electorate, but one section of the  people of Canada defied the conscription act of the federal government and were allowed to  get away with it, while some  other sections of the people of  Canada who tried to do the same  were immediately arrested and,  if they had beliefs which conflicted with war purposes, they  were sent to labor camps the  same as prisoners of war, others  who just did not want to go to  war were put in prison or tried  as deserters.  Now, I think every elector  should demand that all political  parties should <come out with a  definite statement as to what  they will do in this matter,  should their party be elected.  Come on, electors, demand of  your candidates a definite statement of policy on the foregoing  matter before you cast your vote.  This is very vital to the future  of .your  children.  D. H. G.  Wildwood.  Identification  EDITOR, The News���I am being caused considerable embarrassment by the fact that  numerous of my friends are confusing the CCF candidate in the  Nanaimo federal riding with my  brother and myself.  The CCF candidate is Robert  M. Strachan, a Vancouver businessman, but he is not my brother, Robert M. Strachan, a Vancouver bank employee, nor yet  is he my son, Robert Strachan,  who is a student in Grade I' at  Langford  School.  During 1944 and 1945, I worked in the interests of Alan Chambers, then Liberal MP, locally  and in the Cowichan area, visiting as far afield as Port Renfrew  and Clo-oose, while in the provincial campaign of 1945 I organized for Macgregor. Macintosh, the Coalition candidate in  Cowichan-Newcastle, working all  the way from Rounds to Chase  River and Extension.  In view of the large number  of people I have met politically,  many of whom probably only rer  member my last name, it can  be understood that some imagine  I am the CCF candidate.  As a former active trades unionist having nothing in common with Socialism, being an  advocate of Free .Enterprise and  an opponent of all forms of regimentation, it grieves me that  some who know me well are being thus confused.  Patrick Grant Strachan.  Florence Lake,  R.R. 1, Langford, B.C;  Shocked by CBC  Editor, The News  Sir��� Thousands of Canadian  radio listeners are probably wondering like I am if we pay a $2.50  license fee to listen to immoral  trash like that broadcast on Sunday, May 22, on "Stage 49."  The radio play, "Hilda Morgan" written by Lister Sinclair,  was nothing but a glorification  of the extra-marital relations of  a young school teacher.  For an hour the usually capable CBC actors labored through  the dilemma in which Miss Morgan found herself after her lover  was killed in a traffic accident.  A free and frank discussion of  a $500 illegal operation was only  one of the more shocking incidents in the production. It is no  secret that such problems are all  too common, but.do we have to  have them brought into our  homes to the detriment of our  children?  I'm sure that neither the BBC  nor an American network would  have the gall to insult their listeners like this.  A PARENT  Westview  Monday, July Fourth, Nineteen Forty-nine  M^ney Spent Mere ... it can do a good job all around  THE FEDERAL government has made a step  in the right direction toward spreading  prosperity into every portion of the,., country  ' with their announcement this week that materials for the construction of the Indian  houses they are partially financing were being purchased locally.  This plan has always been followed by the  Forestry Department when they undertake any  construction.  The result is that when local improvements are made local business gets a needed  "shot-in-the-arm" by filling the order for this  work.  When the petty bickering has subsided, the  school bonds sold and the money available,  there will be a $605,000.00 school building project under way on the peninsula. When the  tenders for the construction of these buildings  are called by the School Board we feel that a  condition of the contract should be that mat  erials  be purchased   locally  where  possible.  Assuming that $250,000 of this money will  go into materials let us compare the benefits  to the peninsula when the materials are purchased locally. First there is the direct benefit to the local building supply houses through  whose hands the money would go first. They  would then dissipate this amount through several other local channels and on and on it  would go probably doing ten times its initial  value in work before leaving the area. So it  could be that before that money left the peninsula it could have done a million dollars  worth of work. When the materials are purchased from some out of town outfit we on the  peninsula see none of it.  We feel that in the interests of all concerned that one of the primary conditions of  the contract for the construction of the schools  should be that all possible materials be purchased locally.  Glllf .Lilies Birthday . . . marks three years of service  THIS  SUMMER  Gulf Lines  Limited  is  celebrating  the  commencement  of its  fourth  year of operation.  With three years of steady progress behind  it, which have been characterized by diligent  effort and increasingly better service to the  people of the lower coastal region, the company is embarking upon a brighter period  with prospects excellent for better facilities  and improved equipment to provide still  greater service.  With  the people of Powell. River district  especially, where Gulf Lines has concentrated..  its   schedule   service,  the  steamship  company  lias   become   an   institution   and" an   integral  part of  community  life.  Since the first regular sailing of MV Gulf  Wing the company has grown from 12 employees to 72, and testimony to the camaraderie among its personnel is the fact that all  original members of the organization are still  active in the  company.  It is interesting to note that the Gulf Wing  Only One Minute ...  AMONG    THE    not-too-hopeful    proceedings  emanating t from United Nations headquarters has come a suggestion which in its  simplicity could have a more significant effect  upon the destiny of the world than much of  that august body's deliberations. *  It is nothing more than the desire to dedicate' one rninute at the beginning of General  Assembly sessions to silent prayer and meditation and to. the memory of those who have  died for UN ideals.  It has been officially proposed after Secretary General Lie said he had received many  hundreds of letters from individuals and organizations urging the introduction of prayer  in the meetings.  It is obvious of course that since the UN  comprises every religion, creed and sect in  the world, it would be next to impossible to  introduce a public or spoken prayer which  could satisfy all tenets and give offense to  none.  Other Opinions  has completed more than 800 return voyages  during that time and the Gulf Mariner more  than 430 with both vessels carrying more than  400,000 passengers.  Evidence of the growth and popularity of  *the company is shown in the number of ports  it serves which now total 28. Of these, 16 rely"  on  Gulf   Lines  passenger    and   mail   service  completely.  Like any new company, Gulf Lines has  had its financial ups arfd downs which have  delayed some of their major plans a bit, but  through the determined spirit of its directors  and the friendly attitude of its entire personnel, it has shown its capability of building the  type of steady and reliable service which will  merit the continued confidence and patronage  it deserves.  Residents of this district, and indeed of  all districts served by Gulf Lines, will, we  feel sure, join in extending the wholehearted  wish for their continued success. '  but it brings bright hopes  But since the UN is dedicated to the fulfilment of great ideas for the human race that  are shared by all great philosophies, it is fitting that an opportunity should be given to  all to express in their own way their dedication to universal ideals.  So while it is the decision not to impose  any form of prayer on an individual or nation,  this minute's silence in the , midst of the affairs of the day will provide * an opportunity  for each of those- charged with such grave responsibilities to address himself towards the  highest aspirations of mankind in accordance  with his own beliefs.  With such an opportunity for communion  which this humble ritual will provide, it is  not improbable to believe that it will work  for a greater amount X oi7accdrd among the  individuals present around the international  table and for the people of the nations they  represent.  At least, it is a bright ray of hope.  ' by Jack Seo  DOLLAR  STORY ?

Hope-Princeton Highway  AUTHORITIES are still convinced that what  seems to^ a layman to be a next-to-  impossible job���completion of the Hope-  Princeton Highway by early September���will  be accomplished.  Thirty miles out of Hope, men and equipment are whipping through forested, rugged  country to join up with forces working from  the Princeton side. Anyone who knows the  country, the difficulties' and who has some  idea of the tremendous amount of work remaining to be done will have difficulty in  envisioning how the work will be completed by  the set date. With modern methods and machinery, however, miracles can be accomplished. The Hope-Princeton Highway will be  one of them.  Already a number of fatal accidents have  occurred, most of them on a sharply winding  section of the road.. Crews are erecting log  barriers to prevent motorists from going over  the embankment. There are other danger  spots from which it is not so simple to protect  motorists. Sharp curves and stiff grades provide a dangerous  combination.  The Hope-Princeton is a beautiful road;  it is, by and large, a credit to the province; it  will be one of the busiest highways in British  Bible Message  Selected by John R.

At the risk of causing you to  become disillusioned at this early  age I think I should tell you that  there are a few people who ^ire  not pleased. In* fact, they're  downright irate, angry and just  plain furious!  You see there are over 4,000  tax-payers hereabouts and only  640 voted. Of course nobody  stopped the other 3360���if they  could prove their eligibility���but  these l.A. and J.P.F. people say  " 'tain't fair"���or if they've enjoyed a good education like you  hope to, they say "The poll  wasn't properly constituted and  supervised."

The residents of Selma Park  held a delightful surprise party  in the Community Hall in honor  of our VON nurse, Miss H. Irving, who is leaving for a well-  earned vacation and rest.  The guest of honor was presented with a fitted case and also  won first prize in the games  which were enjoyed by all. The  consolation prize went to Mrs.  T. Thomas. Mrs. C. Prince took  home the door prize.  Dainty refreshments were  served and a chat enjoyed by all  over a cup of tea.  Mrs. R. Kline and two children, former residents of West  Sechelt, have been spending a  few days with Mrs. H. Batchelor.  Mrs. S. W. Ross and Mr. T.  Gowan of Vancouver have been  the guests of their brother, Mr.  John Gowan and family.  _ Mrs. J. Redman is in Vancouver for a visit, and now that  school is out, has been joined by  her j-oung  son,  Bruce.  course your older brother (and  sister) came in mighty handy a  few years back and sometimes  the world news leads you to believe you might yourself before  long���but at present you're  pretty unimportant!  Just to prove however that  progress can never be halted forever you might be interested to  learn this fact. Not so very long  ago (as history marches) in a  small American community, because the School Trustees  thought the subject too delicate  (or indelicate) to be brought up  at a formal meeting, it took 15  years to get an "out-house complete with door" built behind a  little red school-house. The  Trustees never did see or admit  its need���but a newcomer, a  Scotsman, did, and built it himself WITH HIS OWN LUMBER.  Which all goes to prove if  you're patient enough, miracles  sometimes happen! (D'you suppose that these Irate, Angry, and  Just Plain Furious people are  the patient type too?)  Yours sincerely,  A  Mother.  (Charlotte T.  Vannatta.)  P.S.���Don't be TOO disillusioned by this letter. Certainly  these l.A. and J.P.F. people  would have insisted JUST AS  STAUNCHLY, on a new poll if  the results had been reversed.  Gibsons, B.C.  Farewell Service  Initiates New Church  At Roberts Creek  ON SUNDAY last, June 26, the  Roberts Creek United Church  met in their new quarters, namely the store formerly occupied  by the Co-op at the approach of  the wharf. Not only was it their  first service there but it was the  farewell service of our minister,  Rev. Thomas Moore of Gibsons  who is moving to Fort Langley  to take over the church there.  There were 31 present. Mr.  Moore spoke of the happy condition which has existed among  the people of Roberts Creek, and  trusted that the work would continue to grow, visiting his successor, Rev. H. J. Bevan every  success.  Mr." and Mrs. C. J. Merrick invited the congregation to the  "Castle" for a social cup of tea.  Mr. C. A. Shaw, chairman of the  church board presented Rev.  Thomas Moore with a purse of  money from the congregation.  The church is looking forward  to meeting their new minister  Rev. H. J. Bevan who starts his  ministry   among   us   on   July   3.
