NESTMAN  AT A MEETING of the School  Board at Gibsons, the Board  has been notified of the closure  of Port Mellon. At this time no  plans for the school at Port  Mellon can be made, as it is not  known how many children will  be there when school term starts.  The Board is unable to make  any plans until more information  is at hand. Furnace room being  built in Gibsons School.  A meeting will be called' about  the end of July between representatives of PTA, and school  trustees, with Dr. Lowe, dentist  of Roberts Creek, and the public  health nurse, to discuss dental  work in the coming year for  schools. Plans to be worked out  as to costs, and method of operating this school dentist work.  Mrs. B. Lang was appointed  teacher at Div. 5, Sechelt Superior School. Mrs. Rankin appointed for one year relieving  Mr. Ellis, who has obtained one*  year's leave of absence.  THIS 'N THAT  Visiting Mrs. T. Ross are her  daughter and son-in-law and  small granddaughter Marylyn,  holidaying from Winnipeg. They  will visit their sister in Nanaimo,  and come back to Gibsons before  proceeding home.  Home for a while is Mr. Tyson,  and son Jimmy, they are taking  mother back with them when  they leave for a holiday. At least  it will be a change, from one  stove to another.  Came home after putting  Jackie on the bus for his trip,  and found our old dog Rags just  sitting out on the boulevard  watching for the boys. They are  all away, and for more than two  days, he refused to eat, -just sat  out there watching and waiting,  and when I coaxed him to eat  he looked at me so sorrowful'as  much as to say, "How can you  expect me to eat, with them all  gone." Who said animals haven't  any intelligence. After I've made  a real fuss over him, he seems  to have ma^e up his mind to be  'sensible,  and  eat again.  Noticed that wonderful moon  lately. It's a real ..picture to look  out on the water, and speaking  of moonlight, reminds me of  something Mr. Reese told me  the other night, I don't think  he'll mind if I repeat it, he said  one evening while they were  having their usual Choral singing at Mrs. '���Lissiman's, it was a  beautiful moonlight night, and  he said looking out at the beauti-  fule sight on the water, it did  something to him, so that he  sang even better than ever, with  a touch of romance in the offing, I think he can be excused  for feeling this way, for moonlight does something to one, even  as you and I, and it is really  beautiful in Gibsons, on a moonlight night.  BRITANNIA BEACH  By "SLIM"  HI, FOLKS! July 13 and a very  hot day, so I'm staying in the  house  where  it's  cool.  Had our first accident in our  swimming pool. Mr. Bob Bell, 36,  was found drowned Saturday  evening. He was with a swimming party after the pool was  closed. He did not know how to  swim. So it was a shock to all  and our deepest sympathy is ex-  Monday, July Eighteenth, Nineteen Forty-Nine  We liave the Money ...so what's the hold-up  NEARLY SIX months ago a great commotion  was caused by the government announcement that an extra $75,000 had been set aside  for new and reconstruction work on the Gib-  sons-Sechelt roads; this was to be in addition  to the regular allotment of $90,000 for maintenance in the area.  If all $165,000 will buy is a survey for a  new road in the Gibsons business area and  the operation of a grader over the rest of  the road, then, it is time that someone looked  into the operation of the Public Works program.   "  It would appear that before any work is  actually done on the highway 'we are going  to have another annual appropriation of $90,-  000 and the promised $100,000 extra allotment for this area. It would take the Public  Works Department six months to dispose of  the present grant even if they started on a  surfacing project immediately. By that time  they would have the new grant on hand to  keep them going.  It is time the Public Works Department  came to realize that no matter how dusty the  roads get they cannot obliterate the many  promises that have been made for roadwork  in this area.  The people have given both "the Provincial and Federal Governments a terrific vote  of confidence; now let's see the government  DO something to warrant this expression of  support.  Tlie 3 Percent Sales Tax ... where does it go?  IT IS TIME that an investigation was made  into the amount of money collected from  the unorganized section of this area through  the three percent sales tax. This money, collected .for social security benefits to the people, has no way of being returned to this area.  It is' felt in many quarters that if that  amount were returned there would be enough  to build and maintain a hospital at Sechelt  which would answer a crying need of the  district.  While it is quite simple to arrange transportation of patients to a Vancouver hospital,  there are many objections to such procedure.  There are often cases when it is not expedient  to moye a patient���in such cases the ill person must be treated in their own home which  works 'a great hardship on the other members  of the family and often is not in the best interest of the patient.  Even when the patient is sent to a Vancouver hospital it . usually means that he is  completely;' away from friends or that, the  other family members are obliged to go to  Vancouver at great expense to visit their sick.  A hospital in the Sechelt district could  serve the many workers in the.

Editor,   The   News���  "WHAT AN  awful child!"  How often do we hear the expression, or give vent to it ourselves! In this year of progress,  1949, children of tender years but  tough mental outlook elbow their  way past waiting elders into a  public vehicle; they allow old  ladies to stand while they sit;  they accept the largest portion  without question and without  ���wonder as to the fate of the hindmost. They toil not, nor spin  anything more than a doubtful  yarn.  Now are we right to blame the  child for his ill-manners?  Let us go back to the beginning and look at the new-born  baby. What is he? He is a little  savage. Yes, mothers, it is with  deep regret that the shock is administered, but he is, nevertheless, a little savage, and a potential big savage.     .  What he turns out to be in later  years depends on the training he  receives. His father may be a  suave and polished ambassador  at the Court of X, but his small  son is quite likely to throw his  porridge plate at the foreign  minister of X until he is instructed that it is not the normal practice to throw plates at  those foreign ministers with  whose native lands our country  is in peaceful relationship.  It becomes obvious, therefore,  that the way to good manners  and good breeding is not in the  blood, but is a matter of instruction and guidance.  It   surely   follows,   then,   that  AMAZING record of British Columbia development in recent years, is aptly summed  up in the 1949 Year Book just published by the  Journal of Commerce.  Terming B.C. "Canada's^ most favored  province" the Journal points out that from a  population of 818,000 in 1941 it has grown to  1,082,000.  Its public debt is but 12.64 percent of the  total current expenditure. Volume of retail  sales in the province last year showed an increase of 9.3 per cent, and an all-time high of  $1,659,147 was recently paid out in a single  month in family allowances in the province.  External trade of B.C. totals $528 per  capita, which is $68 per person. more than the  average1 for Canada. Imports and exports for  B.C.  during 1948 totalled $571,429,677.  The per capita gross value of production  in 1948 was $1,371 for every man, woman and  Wtp (tatst Nntta  Published  Every Tuesdoy  at  SECHELT,  B.C.  by  The Coast News Limited  Registered Office: Powell River, B.C.

Total gross production  was estimated at $1,484,000,000. Per capita  value of retail sales in B.C. for the year was  '$628. ������-;     ��� X__ 7  - B.C:   has   the   secoiid     highest Xpotent  power  resources  in   Canada.   Already  917,024  horsepower   have   been   developed   while   another 10,000,000 h.p. await development.  In 1948 a total of 1,242 new companies  were incorporated with authorized capitalization of $67,913,212. During the past four years  5,713 new companies have been incorporated.  B.C. forest industry production totalled  $360,000,000; agricultural production was valued at $145,000,000; mining at $150,000,000 and  fishing at $70,000,000, making a total of $725,-  000,000.  During the past five years, the school  building program totalled $58,000,000, and the  most modern types of new schools are under  construction in all parts of the province.  Public Works Department is spending $4,-  500,000 on public buildings.  The B.C. Power Commission now has a  $25,000,000 investment in plants in operation  and construction.  "A walk down any of the main streets  in any city, town or village in British Columbia" concludes the Journal, "reveals innumerable new. store fronts, and an extensive program of modernization of retail outlets is in  progress throughout the length and breadth  of the province."  It would seem that despite shortage of  dollars in the European markets and its effect  on British Columbia industries, the general  feeling of the people of the province is one  of. confidence and the whole outlbok for the  future appears to be stable.  outside contacts, including such  things as the cinema, but this  way is largely controllable by  wise parents.  We must conclude then, that  ": parents -arid " feachers>'1. *;' are ��� the  people at fault. Old methods of  teaching are banned as repressive; yet if we look at the normal  person over thirty-five today, he  or she must surely have been  brought up and have thrived on  these same repressive methods.  No doubt he got the cane at  school, or did punishment drill  from time to time. "Spare the rod  and spoil the child" is as true  today as it ever was, and experience of the present younger generation's bad manners must surely teach our education authorities and parents that the blame is  theirs. Do not let us go back to  Wackford, Squeers by any means,  but cannot headmasters devise  some method whereby it is a  point of honor for his pupils to  uphold the prestige of the school  in public? X  . If knowledge of ang. indiscretion came to his ears he could  fix the appropriate punishment  for the delinquent, and if guilt  were not established in any one  quarter, for the schobl as a  whole.  Parents could co-operate in  this system, and also institute  their own code of honor in the  home. Repressive methods have  been frowned upon in recent  years,   and   it     is     undoubtedly  i;  J  1  (  ries.  wrong to repress a good feature;  complicated   it is, however, a necessity to re-  __ press evil traits.

Visit to Vancouver Can  By E. NESTMAN  WELL FOLKS, made that flying  trip, and here I am, and if you  want to take a trip, with one  section of the buses on strike,  well you've got our sympathy,  Madge and myself started off  with Ste vie Little john, and  Jackie Nestman, on their way  down to Los Angeles to spend a  month with Stevie's uncle in  Los Angeles.  To begin with, the bus people  in Vancouver told us we didn't  need reservations to get to Seattle, so we dashed madly in on  Thursday night, and walked into  the bus station, asked if we could  get tickets for the 11.30 bus in  the morning.  They said have you reservations, and we sadly shook our  heads. Sorry bus is filled up, and  don't know if we are going to  put another bus on to take the  overflow.  ��� 11.30 was the last bus that day  too incidentally. So we said, well  is there any chance of us getting  on that bus if it goes;  Don't know, nonchalantly muttered the very bored clerk. Call  at 8 a.m. and we'll let you  known.  So with that we sadly wended  our way to the hotel for the  night, trying to figure out what  to do for the next day's getaway.  Got up bright and early Friday morning, with a quick dash  for breakfast, so that we could  get papers fixed up at the immigration for the "small fry."  While having breakfast, phoned  the bus station on the off chance  that the second bus might be  going.  The clerk informed us that a  second bus would be leaving, but  would take no reservations unless we had tickets, so one part  of the family dashed, down to  immigration, and I hopped over,  to the bus depot. Got the tickets  and reservations.  The boys were inforrited that  they would have to change at  Seattle to . "Trailways" buses,  and then they would' have to  change again  at Portland,  back  amusing  to the Greyhound.  If you don't think that wasn't  confusion, well you haven't seen  anything. We finally got aboard  Bus No. 2, and were on our way.  Next stop was at Blaine. Here  we all alighted, took out all bur  luggage, for the American customs to go through, handed over  our Form "H'\ convinced them all  we were harmless, and after about an hour's sitting around, we  were released, and on our way.  Next stop was at Bellingham,  for twenty minutes, while we refueled with a quick sandwich,  and coffee, and our first chance  to buy the inevitable packet of  "Lucky Strikes". Felt very  much the blase traveller by this  time. We were on our way again,  and then Seattle.  Found we had two hours to  wait there, for the Portland bus.  Got our things all out of Bus  No. 2 and dashed over to "Trail-  ways" bus terminal which is about six blocks away, all was a  state of confusion there with  people milling around going and  coming, how they do it is a mystery to me. The bus station is  not as large as ours, but the dispatcher is right on his toes. No  loafing around in this place,  more people, and baggage, whew,  and was it ever hot.  Anyway we contacted the very  genial manager of the "Trail-  ways" at the counter, who was  right there speeding up baggage,  and buses, and a very fine person he turned out to be. In the  midst of all the confusion he  took time out to talk to us, and  to inform us that the Vancouver  people could have routed our  two boys through to Los Angeles  on this one bus, instead of making them change at Portland in  the middle of the night. That  sure didn't make us feel any  better, and felt quite burned at  the very bored clerk that they  had in Vancouver.  After we got the boys on the  bus, found I had left my white  coat, in fact my one and only  coat, in the Vancouver bus. Well  32 Piece  Breakfast  Sets in Corex  Manufactured  by the Makers of Pyrex  6 Cups and Saucers  6  Dinner  Plates  1   Sugar Bowl  6 Bread and Butters  6 Cereal Dishes  1   Cream Jug  The Set 3#OU  MARSHALL'S HARDWARE  Serving the Peninsula  Phone 33  Gibsons  Take a trip to beautiful  Pender Harbour ^ bus  See Secret Cove - Middle Point - Madiera Park  and Garden Bay  that just about finished it.  I phoned the depot, and the  girl there very blithely, informed me that 1 hadn't a chance  that the bus had gone back long  ago, as there must have been  about a thousand people milling  around waiting for Vancouver  buses.  "Call at the lost and found office in the morning" she very  cheerily told me. "After 8 a.m.",  and see if it is turned in."  Well I sadly put down the  phone, and mentally added this  to my long list of grievances  against the Pacific Stages. In  the meantime Madge was talking to the "Trailways" bus manager, and he told us to get right  over to the Pacific Stage bus  station, as he knew that this bus  had not gone back to Vancouver.  He said they didn't turn right  around and go back, so we thanked him, and dashed back 8  blocks to the depot, and there  was number one bus loading up  for Vancouver, and our stage  driver standing there waiting to  see if he had to take our number two bus.  We ran over to Thim, and asked if he had found a white coat  in his bus, and he said no, he  hadn't seen anything. We inquired where that bus was, and  he said he would have to go to  the station about 8 blocks away  where the bus was locked up,  and to stick around until he  found out whether they'd run  another bus back to Vancouver  or whether they'd leave a bunch  of people standing there until  next day.  Eventually after a lot of phoning and arguing they decided to  run bus No. 2 back to Vancouver, and take the very worried  crowd back. He went down and  brought back the bus. I went  over to him, and said "is my coat  there?" He very bored like, said,  "I don?t know. I haven't looked,"  and gave me such a disgusted  look. But' graciously deigned to  go into the bus, and bring me  back my coat, where it had been  nesaing up in the baggage rack.  Without even looking at me, he  handed me the coat and started  to take tickets from the thundering herd waiting to board the  bus.  I overlooked everything just to  get my coat back, and then  Madge and I made one dash for  the first cocktail bar, where we  downed a tall glass of iced "Ginger Ale", and actually relaxed.  What a day, what a day.  Well then we got ourselves a  room in the Mayflower, it's a  grand spot to relax in, we really  did ourselves up brown. Went out  next day and shopped, and if the  old adage "You only get what  you pay for," was ever true, its  true a thousand ways over there.  There are lots of things to tempt  you. Meals are high, of course  they always have been there, but  you get lots to eat. What got me  was plants, plants every where,  and those little dish gardens,  with everything in them. Just  the thing for apartments or small  homes. In dishes of every shape,  color and size. Novelties from Italy, and Japan, and no cheaper  than our own Canada.  We did some shopping, * and  then decided we had better find  out if we could get a bus back.  Phoned the bus station, and  could make no reservations. We  had to take our chance, if we  could not get the bus, we would  have to wait indefinitely.  So we cashed in our ticket, and  took the train home. The Canadian Customs came on about  an hour outside Canada, and  started to work. The young lady,  very nice, takes an inventory of  what you bought and the cost of  it, and that's that. No bag inspection  or anything else.  Then  THE COAST NEWS, Mon., July 18, 1949  3  she tells you after you have  spent the allotted amount of  $50 or less, no more purchases  for four months. You are allowed  $150 for one year's quota of  money down there. So you can  readily see how much you can  do, with fares, and meals etc.  You can bring back 200 cigarettes after you have been there  48 hours, and a bottle of liquor.  Yes, I brought back the cigs,  and a bottle. I don't know what's  in it yet. I saw a grand round  shaped bottle with a crown stopper in gold on the top, and I  went into their liquor store, and  asked if they had such a bottle.  The man looked at me as if I  was queer, and finally said oh yes,  I think I know what you mean,  and went into the back and  brought it out.  Now I said what's in the bottle.

It is a fine  place with a nice stretch of beach  and the boys and girls who do  manage to spend any time there  are lucky!  There has been quite an influx  of visitors this last week-end,  and if this weather continues I  should think it will prove a record season. This despite the fact  that most people I talk with and  most papers I read seem to be  convinced we are on the verge  of a depression. Personally, I do  not think so���at least, I try to  convince myself so. To be perfectly truthful no government or  system of government can afford  a depression. And all these  bankers and diplomats dashing  around the globe is, to me, evidence of a real honest effort to  find a way out of this financial  vortex. Having got that off my  chest, let's get out of such dangerous waters and get into a  safer stretch (I'm going in now).  I've been swimming in many  waters in my time, but this is  really the most enjoyable I've  found yet!  ,By the way, I do hope that nobody regrets this little effort of  mine being somewhat like a personal diary. In time, I'll get to  know all the celebrities, local and  visiting. Then I'll be able to  write this column a bit more  "gossipy."

Haven't heard yet what is going to happen to the Kewpie  Camp; at least, nothing official,  although one rumor, which if it  came true would be a good thing  for the "Creek." However, more  of this anon.  Must finish soon to catch the  9:3j bus, but I owe it to myself  to tell you. I caught three fine  big cod last week, so I did redeem my reputation.  This week I've been tree-felling. Had two cherry laying into  the top of a fir, so I undercut  the first two, then felled an alder which didn't shift them. So  I dropped another. This shifted  two but still left a third clinging like an orphan to the fir. So  I had to drop another! Finally  I got them down and by this time  I was real mad and wringing  wet with sweat. So I put the  fir flat too. I'll show these trees!  I missed my well by inches,  covered my spuds, and I've a  real mess to clear up. I'm not  making any money since I came  here, but I do have fun.  Now there's that bus coming  up the road. Have to dash for it.  Cheerio, "all.  . Jack for Short.  Also, Russians were first to  sink an oil well, says Moscow.  This had to be, because their  earlier invention, the first motorcar, had gone  1000 miles.  "What goes up must come  down" was a good old rule of  everyday physics that served for  many generations.

They have a fountain, and on  it they have metal cases with  glass top, and every once in a  while some ardent fisherman,  brings in a "huge" fish about  10 pounds, and its displayed very  proudly in these cases. Bet if  they had one of our 30 pounders  in it, they wouldn't believe it.  We got into a few arguments  when they tried to charge us discount "on our Canadian dollar, by  telling them, their money wasn't  worth any more than ours.  Didn't see why we had to pay  anything on our money, that we  were better. off than they were  financially, etc. We really gave  all and sundry a short pep talk  on  our finances.  When we told them we.- had  no National debt (incidentally  that was Mrs. Little John's arguments, she is well posted on  these things,) I really slipped  there, and we also told them  about our wonderful surplus,  they were amazed, they really  haven't any idea about us, that  is certain things. One man said  "Do you mean to tell me if a  man brought into Canada $2500  he  could  only get $2500 for it."  We emphatically informed him  that's all it was worth. Guess  we'd make poor ambassadors,  but sometimes it isn't always  wise to be diplomatic. Anyway  we got back in one piece, and  that's  the main thing.  THE COAST NEWS, Mon., July 18. 1949  MARY W. RENNIE  The   population   of   the   world  has doubled in the last 100 years.  WE REGRET that the Granthams  Notes were missing in the last  issue of the Coast News. Sometimes the "daily round and the  common task" crowd out the time  for correspondence. These are  very busy days at Granthams.  There are so many visitors coming and going. This is quite a  holiday resort nowadays.  The young folks here are having a grand time this summer  surf board riding. It is thrilling  to watch these strong young  figures riding the waves. Some  of the experts are now using  water skis. There will be some  fine entertainment for the spectators at this year's regatta.  We are pleased to report that  the garden party which was held  at the home of Mr. and Mrs.  Humphries on Thursday was a  great success. A large number of  visitors enjoyed the afternoon.  The weather and the location  were perfect for such an event.  These "affairs" always mean a  lot of hard work for the ladies  who arrange them,, but when  they give such gratifying results, we feel that it was worth  the effort.  Mrs. George McLellan and her  two children, Bonnie and Heather from Chemainus, Vancouver  Island, are at present visiting  with her parents, Captain and  Mrs. H. McLean at their Soames  Point home.  Mrs. Mathieson from Bolton,  Lanes, England, and Mr. ahd  Mrs. Norman Turner of Vancouver were visitors to Soames Point  recently. They were the guests  of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Eckford.  Mrs. R. G. Johnston with her  two small children are at present  visiting with her parents, Mr.  and Mrs. Innis at Granthams.  She will later join her husband  in Winnipeg where they are  making their home.  Mr. and Mrs. Clements had  a  visit from their son'- Andrew-, '���  of the Canadian Navy. He has  been away for some months  with his ship in foreign waters,  and is now at Esquimalt.  Mrs. W. Fulkerson from Bella  Bella was a visitor at Granthams last week, renewing old  friendships. Mr. and Mrs. Fulkerson were residents here four  years ago. Mr. Fulkerson was  school  teacher  at Bella Bella.  Last week Mr. and Mrs. F.  Farrow entertained visitors from  the east. Mrs. Montieth of South  Mountain, Ontario, with her  granddaughter, Norma, and Mrs.  Carr of Winnipeg and Miame,  Manitoba. The two visiting ladies  are sisters of Mrs. Farrow. Mrs.  N. Lowes from Burnaby is also  a sister of Mrs. Farrow visited  at the same time. It is about  thirty years ago since the sisters  were together.  Miss M. Norris of Ruislip, Middlesex, England, is at present visiting with her Aunts Mrs. Paul  and Miss Sambrook of Granthams Landing.

SECHELT  By ARIES  WE ARE very sorry to hear that  Mr. R. S. Hackett, our genial postmaster, is very ill at the  present time. Had a heart seizure but at time of going to press  glad to hear his condition is  slightly . improved. Also on the  sick list is Mrs. Charles Jordan  (Auntie) of Porpoise Bay who  was taken to Pender Harbour to  St. Mary's Hospital, and also  Mrs. Clarise Clark of Porpoise  Bay taken to St. Mary's Hospital suffering from a stroke.

Also Mr. and MrsT Leader of  Edmonton and Mr. and Mrs.  Trigg of Vancouver visiting Mr.  and Mrs. McKissock.  A wonderful time was had by  both. old and young at the Sunday School picnic of the Wilson  Creek, Porpoise Bay and Sechelt  Mission Church with Pastor  Elliott distributing the prizes for  the various events which included races for all, tug-of-war and  the balloon race being the main  attractiop. A grand supper was  served in the Legion Hall. Those  assisting were Mrs. Brown, Mrs.  Mutter, Mrs. Reid, Mrs; Livesay,  Mrs. Myers, Mrs. Phillips, Mrs.  Williams, Mrs. Sawyer and Mrs.  Elliott. The Sunday School superintendents for the various  points are: Wilson Creek, Mi".  Geer; Sechelt, Mrs. McKissock;  and Porpoise Bay, Mrs. Brown.  All agreed that a very pleasant  year's work had been enjoyed  and the picnic ended with a singsong in which all took part, including friends who called during  the. singing.  Enjoying Sechelt for the first  time is Mrs. Isabel Walker of  Vancouver, visiting Mr. and Mrs.  Walter Deane.  Don't- forget the summer tea  and sale of work on August 13  in the Legion Hall. It is the one  great event of the year by the  ladies of the Auxiliary to the  local branch of the Canadian  Legion. Usually a very good affair with lots of bargains. Stock  up for Christmas presents, why  don't you?  Nice to see some building activity again in West Sechelt. We  understand that Mr. and Mrs.  Corbett are building on their lot  which they have had for many  years.  Visiting    Mrs. .,Frank   French  By PEARL PUNNETT  MRS.

Society  was up on Sunday, July 10 and  gave a demonstration of what to  do and what not to do in cases of  emergency. The antics of some  .of the men were very amusing  and  very  instructive.

He went via Panama  Canal and returned the same  way and had a wonderful trip  but was glad to get back to Vancouver. Conditions are not very  good in England, Mr. Root says,  and rationing of food still * continues. The weather was very  good and travel is still a very  expensive item. Mr. Root is having a glorious holiday at Glendalough, guests of Mr. and Mrs.  Jack Mayne. ' 7   ;      '.  PICNIC  The     Longshoreman's     nicnic  was held on July 8.

THE COAST NEWS, Mon., July 18, 1949  By  MURIEL WELSH  THE PAST week has been a gay  one in and around the Bay.  We have had a wedding, beach  parties and house parties galore,  and the weather simply glorious  for the long holiday week-end.  On July 4 a combined surprise-  farewell and welcome party was  given by the Board of Directors  Elphinstone Branch Victorian  Order of Nurses, at the home of  . the President, Mrs. Wm. Meikle  at Welcome Beach in honor of  Miss Helen Irving, retiring nurse  and Miss Muriel Martin who is  taking her place.  The  evening was  spent playing cards,  andv Dr.  Hugh. Inglis  -presented the guests    of    honor  ^ with corsages, and in a few well  | chosen   words  bade  farewell  to  v Miss Irving and welcome to Miss  S* Martin.  Miss Irving was presented with  a pen and pencil set on behalf  of those present with good wishes  f,for her future.  j Delicious refreshments served  by the hostess, Mrs. Meikle, concluded a delightful evening.  Miss Helen Irving has been the  fhouse guest of Mrs. Wm. Meikle  ffor the past week.  Mrs. H. Lunn and Mrs. Wedge-  |bury who have been staying at  ^"Madrona" Redroofs for the  [past month returned to Vancouver on Sunday.  The fishing has been good this  week. Mr. and Mrs. Sam Pitt,  uests of the George. Simpsons,  iad several splendid catches, as  did Miss Nan Shearer and her  brother Mr.. Harold Shearer of  Saskatchewan, also guests of the  jSimpsons. When leaving for Vancouver on Sunday they had a  couple of "beauties" to take  home with them.

Sorry to report that Miss Mary  Burrows, clerk at Pratts Store,  has been ordered to bed for a  complete rest by her doctor. We  sincerely hope she will benefit  from the rest and soon be back  on the job again.  Beach parties are in full swing,  the youngsters having a wonderful time, while Mom and Dad  sit back and relax with books  and papers. Then comes the  familiar cry "I'm hungry" and  Mom is "hard put" handing out  sandwiches, cookies etc, while  Pop opens up the pop and milk.  I never cease to wonder at the  amount of food children can  stow away, and then "fill in"  with ice cream and candy, peanuts etc., and still find room for  an extra sandwich. It's really  wonderful!  Have just been along the beach  and find the following at their  summer   homes.  Mr. and Mrs. A. T. Campbell  with Lynne, Craig and Bruce.  Mr. and Mrs. H. T.

I am sorry I ]p.ad to break off  short last week, but you know  how it is when unexpected guests  arrive. Everyone in the house has  to scurry around and help make  them welcome. Mr. and Mrs.  Walter Scott of New Brighton  had spent a few days in town  and decided they would drop in  on their way back bringing with  them Bud Freeston of Freemac  Amphibious Taxi. Bud is quite  an old friend having known us  about three years. Asked Bud  what he was celebrating. He  said, "Independence Day." So I  asked him why celebrate an American holiday? Bud's answer to  this was: "Why shouldn't we  celebrate? After all we can be  independent. Work was here  when we came and it's a cinch  we won't be taking it with us.  Therefore we are independent of  work."  Had a very nice turnout at our  hall on July 2. We did expect  more than 20 but a check up at  11 p.m. showed 85 members and  guests. Among the guests were  Mr. and Mrs. F. P. Hillyer; Mrs.  E. V. Mortell; J. Woodworth; G.  S. Best; L. W. Bentley; Ken  Deely; Mr. and Mrs. J. Young;  Mr. and Mrs. P. Jones and Mr.  and Mrs. C. H. Gilvie of Vancouver; G. M. Thompson, W. M.  DesBrisay of West Vancouver.  Then the Brandon family, J. R.,  L. L., and Beverley signed in  from Gibsons. Haven't seen them  for over a year. Also Mr. and  Mrs. E. G. Abrams from New  Westminster.  Mr. and Mrs. George Mclvor  of New Westminster spent a few  days with Mr. and Mrs. Scott  and Ed Murchie of New Brighton this last week. George and  Vera like our nali very much.  Mrs. Agnes Odel, who flew  from England last fall, is spending at least two weeks with her  niece and nephew, E'd and Florence Bourne at Glenwood, Maple  Road, Gambier Harbour. When  in Vancouver Mrs. Odell, who is  82, stays with her. daughter and  son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Don  Sinclair. Her home formerly was  at Stourpaine,' Dorsetshire..  Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Angus  visited Gambier Island again  this year. This is the first time  Mr. and Mrs. Angus have been  here for 12 years. Mr. Angus  said this hall had been needed  for 2 years. Mr. Angus works at  Powell   River  now.  Guess Professor and Mrs. Larsen are going to have their hands  full "for the holidays, as I see  quite a few of their grandchildren up* with them this year.  Mrs. Heath and son Lloyd have  *been    joined    by * Major    John  Heath. Have a good time, John.  I expect I hacl better quit calling Gambier Island "God's Country." Especially after finding one  of . the psychologists from  , Shaughnessy Hospital holiday-  making up here. His name, G.  H. Hunter. However, he has his  own   problems   to   solve   having  her ..sister-in-law, Mrs.  G. Gunn  who' will spend the    next    two  -���weeks here.  Mrs.   Hunter   and   their   family  here to.  The Johnson's, Clarke's, En-  eca's were up for a few days at  New Brighton.  I never thanked friend Otto  Giersh for finishing our wharf.  It is a good job, well done. Although we are still minus our  new float. Guess we will appreciate it all the more when  Otto can get it.  Heard yesterday that the  Abernethy boys lost their landing barge and a load of freight  in over 200 feet of water. A diver  went down 200 feet but wasn't  able to locate the barge. Young  Abernethy told our Bert., that  they, had loaded the barge and  started it off, and then he went  for another boat, but when he  got to where the barge should  have been he saw the last of the  freight going down. Haven't  heard if any of the boys 'were  hurt. I hope not as they were all  decent chaps.  (Would   like     to     remind   all  summer  visitors  both here  and  on the mainland that a little care  may   save     millions   of   dollars.  Don't start forest fires.)  Also a. little forethought regarding other people's boats. If  you don't know who owns the  boat, don't borrow it unless you  have permission. Some fellows  nearly got in a nice jam over  that yesterday. Mine was missing, so I phoned Constable Peterson and reported it. Fortunately,  they brought it back. So I again  phoned Constable Peterson and  told him. He asked me to press  the charge as some people needed  the  lesson.  By   JEAN  JEFFRIES  IT  SEEMS everyone  is heading  out fishing.  Mr. and Mrs. M. Silvey and  family left for a couple of weeks  fishing  around   Savary  Island.  Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Beale and  family are headed that way too.  The weather is grand so I hope  you all have a grand time.  Noticed Mrs. R. Watson and  Mrs. A. Lutz aboard the Jervis  on Monday. Also Mrs. Don Foul-  ton of Vancouver Bay.  Mrs. M. Jeffrj.es is home again,  but is still getting around on  crutches.  Mr. and Mrs. Bordson left on  Tuesday for their summer holidays. Mr. Bordson is our school  teacher.

Such a plan would  fit in with the company's scheme  in connection with the new Hart  highway, which is being pushed  ahead from Prince George to  Dawson Creek, B.C.  The new highway would permit freight shipments from Pacific coast states to travel up the  Pacific highway to Vancouver  and be transferred in bond to  government-owned trucks for  shipment to Squamish, where  they could be carried over the  Pacific Great Eastern Railway to  its terminus at Quesnel.  Here government trucks could  again pick up the freight and  move it to Dawson Creek for  transshipment up the Alaska  highway to northern points.  Such a route would eliminate  long, round-about hauls now nee  essary in the case of road shipments  from  Pacific  coast states  to Alaska.  The Vancouver-Squamish highway project has been discussed  for many years, but the terrain  has presented such obstacles that  until this year little interest was  shown in the project by the  government. With the development of' the northern country  and with renewed interest in the  future operations of the Pacific  Great Eastern Railway the project is now receiving serious  consideration.  There are other factors also  bearing on this matter. One is  the launching of an extended  construction program by the  B.C. Electric at Bridge River,  which will be carried out for  many years to come, the first  62,000 h.p. unit having just commenced operations. Another factor is the more permanent and  stable development' which seems  assured for the mining operations in the Bridge River area.  When the Squamish highway is  carried through the next project  will be a highway down the opposite side of Howe Sound from  Squamish to connect up with the  present highway system which;,  serves Granthams, Hopkins and  Gibsons   Landings   and     Sechelt  MORE  ABOUT  Granthams Landing  Continued from Page 5  England during the    past    year  teaching in Vancouver.  Miss E. Kelly from Lewisham,  London, England, is visiting Mrs.  Rennie for a few days. Miss Kelly  is also an exenange teacher from  England and has been teaching in  Vancouver for the last year. Both  ladies are leaving shortly on  their return trip home, and both  are quite sorry to leave B.C.  They feel that one year is not  long enough to spend as an exchange. They have just become  used to the schools over here and  could enjoy working for another  year.  Mrs. Langdale from Grandview  is at present visiting her daughter who is staying at the Startup's  cottage at Soames Point.  Miss Sheila McMahon is visiting again this summer as the  guest of Mrs. Douglas.  The Kirkland family are occupying their summer home  again.

Stevenson, R.C.S.A., Esquimau., from Johnny Ellis, R.C.N.,  Halifax, who writes: "Sure wish  1 was back there now." These  two young men look forward  eagerly to getting the 'Coast  News'. They feel that it is refreshing to read the news of the  and adjacent points.  This section was once purely  the centre of summer homes, but  the entire coastline is being  steadily built up into permanent  communities, and industrial operations in the- section have also increased.  It would, therefore, appear that  if the Squamish highway is  pushed through it will be but  the first link in the development  of a new coastal highway, which  may; some; day be extended by  means of ferries to develop the  entire northern B.C.  coast.
