' Everything for  The Fisherman  WILLIAM Holt, a Yorkshireman  told recently about his recent  visit to a factory where the fishing rods and tackle are made.  Started as a family firm, it has  now become the largest factory of  its kind in the world.  Many of its members are enthusiastic anglers as well as  manufacturers and one of the  Directors has been an angler  since he was a boy, gaining  knowledge that has stood him  in good stead when inventing  and perfecting many articles  now in common use by fishermen all over the world. The special reels he has invented are  highly thought of by anglers and  his firm has also built up an intensive reputation for building  fishing rods from  split bamboo.  The can for these is first cut  in half, then roasted in an oven,  and then cut into sections which  are later cemented together. The  rods are wound temporarily with  thread and then straightened, after this they are taken to conditioning rooms to stand in bundles  for months until the time for  varnishing comes. After this  they are finished and tested until they are of the quality that  has made the firm's rods incomparable.  More fascinating even than the  business of making the rods is  the making of the artificial flies  with which they are baited. In  the fly dressing department the  workers sit at benches. They all  face towards a north light, which  is steady and consistent for  blending the subtle colors. Laid  out on the benches Holt saw  "thousands of feathers of all colors of the rainbow." The room is  bright and very quiet, with no  draughts, for one gust of air  would blow away all the materials from which the products  are  manufactured.  The fly-dressers strip off bits  of feather and fuzz and fasten  them to the hook by wrapping  silk or wire round them, working  so fast that the eye cannot follow every movement of their  fingers. They wet the fly's tail  to bend it, which is a skilled operation for they have to know  and remember the exact appearance of every one of hundreds of  flies. Girls' fingers are not strong  enough for tying salmon flies,  which have to be most securely  done, as they must be able to  stand very rough treatment, casting through the air, working  through water, and maybe suffering a few snatches from the  fish.  Holt told how the feathers for  these flies come from all over  the world, from jungle cocks in  India and Burma, golden pheasants in China and tropical birds  in many places. The feathers are  bought in many queer markets  and, governments have wisely  protected many rare birds, fly  makers have to find other feathers as substitutes, using, where  possible, those from birds that  are harmful to man. It is not  always feathers that are used to  make flies; some are made from  fur plucked from a hare's ears.  Most of the workers in this old  firm come from Alnwick on the  North-East coast of England, and  the firm has a sporting arrangement with the employees who  have helped to build up the world  famous business.  Those who work really hard  are taken into partnership and  allotted shares. 75% of the output is exported and the firm is  busy all the year round, because  the Northern Hemisphere has its  fishing season when the Southern one ceases, the alternating  seasons being a great boon to the  factory. Huge fish such as few  Englishmen ever see, baracuda,  tuna and sword fish, are caught  with this firm's rods in the  Southern Hemisphere.  "This firm of rod makers."  concluded William Holt, "know  what they owe to anglers all  over the world, but how much  anglers owe to that English family in that little Northumberland  town of Alnwick will' probably  never be realised.".  A smile is contagious, but the  health department doesn't object.  INmsTI Be Pessimistic  NOTHING retards progress quite so much as  general pessimism on the part of the resir  dents. It is amazing how far-reaching a few  pessimistic words can be. Just recently several  real estate transactions have fallen through  for no other reason than the discouraged attitude of the residents of this district. One of  these sales would have resulted in the commencement of a small industry employing  about six men to start but which might have  grown to a large manufacturing plant in the  future.  . t The parties interested in investing their  money unfortunately heard too much talk  about the number of logging shows that were  closing down, the opposition to the construction of the new schools being expressed  through the courts, and the rumor that the ���  proposed Port Mellon road would not be built.  It is too bad that no one was able to convince  these parties that the logging shutdown in  most cases was just a seasonal one and that  any logging outfit with good grade timber is'  not worried  about the  future.  It is  too bad ���-  ... the destroyer oi progress  that these potential Investors ir* our district  were not advised that the group opposing the  school construction is a very small minority  not identified as representing any known  group or organization. And it is too bad that  there has been such a reaction to the suggestion that the Port Mellon road might not be  built, because on this score there is absolutely  no change in the economic structure of the  Peninsula���we have not enjoyed any benefit  from the fact that there was a pulp mill in  operation at Port Mellon, therefore the shutdown has actually cost us nothing.  When the people of a district are optimistic about its future, visitors get a much  different view of conditions. It is just as easy  to convince people that the future is going to  be good as it is to suggest that it will be bad.  Actually, no one can foretell the future, and  since a pessimistic outlook only tends to make  things worse, it is in our own interest to try  and look for the silver lining and tell our  visitors that we have confidence in the future  of the Peninsula.  You Have a Civic Duty  ��� ���  A LOCAL newspaper is the show window of  the district. This has been a known fact  for many years but it is only .recently that  progressive areas have come to realize that  .the newspaper is not jusrt the results of the  efforts of the staff which produces it alone,  but that the newspaper is the result of the  combined efforts and co-operation of everyone  living in the community.  There are very contributions each person  can  make  toward  having  a  successful  paper  in   their   community.   First,   they   should   support the paper by being a paid-up subscriber.  A newspaper with  a high percentage of the*  population listed as paid-up subscribers is in  a position to assist  every organization in  its  efforts    to   help   the   community.    Secondly,  everyone should make a point of handling the  odd bits of news they hear to the local paper,  either direct or through one of the community ���  correspondents. By using the newspaper as a  clearing house of rumors and gossip, the peo7  pie can all be informed of the true facts of  . to your newspaper  what is happening in their district, because a  good newspaper does everything in its power  to obtain the true facts of a story before it  prints it. Part of the work of a newspaper  editor is running to earth the many rumors  that originate from nowhere and so often do  much  harm  before they can be stopped.  Just the same as the exterior of a home  reflects the type of people that live in, so  does the newspaper reflect the type of community it serves. A bright newsy paper carrying all the local news and advertising from the  majority of the business people can always be  found in a prosperous, growing community.

THE CANADIAN LEGION at its recent conference in Saskatchewan put on the record  a   few  resolutions   aimed   at   a  more   careful  curb of Communists in this country.  The recommendations will no doubt be  applauded by the .majority of Canadian people,  but most Canadians also would go a lot farther.  The Legion requests, as measures to counteract Communism, the following steps: public  exposure of Communist aims and techniques;  better education among Canadians for citizenship; elimination of abuses that give weight  to Communist propaganda; refusal to employ  Communists in responsible positions; careful  attention by defence authorities to the danger  of subversive activities; the closing of schools  operated by Communists and the prohibition  of all instruction and lectures glorifying Communism.

If they make an "ever" "never,"  If they set a "loss" as "toss,"  He who reads the proof must catch it,  Or he'll "catch it" from the boss.

""  These are all good proposals and they demand early action, but if Canada goes so far  as to bar Communists from employment in  responsible positions, why should it not go  the whole way and bar Communism altogether? ' ~  The nature of Communism makes it an  outlaw creed because it proposes to overthrow  this country's system of government by force..  And overthrowing Canada's system of government by force is defined in the law books  as treason.,  This country has been far too patient with  Communist mischief, and. in view of the full  story now having been unrolled regarding the  manner in. which the Communists manoeuvred  the international shipping strike through the  CSU surely leaves no doubt that the Legion's  recommendations should be implemented at  once.  Getting Out the Paper  THE MAN who picks up the paper published  in his home town, glances through it,  sniffs, and says, "Nothing in it," is by no  means a rare bird. He lives in every town. As  a rule, he reads all the papers regularly. He  never misses an issue if he can help it. Some  even prefer to borrow a copy and thus save  five cents. That Class is not above explaining  just how he'd run the paper. Nine times out  of ten he knows nothing about getting out a  newspaper. It's curious, but true, that the  general run of mankind cherish illusions that  there is no line of business that's easier than  publishing a newspaper. As a matter of fact,  it's one of the hardest. Some people cling to  the idea that putting a "piece" in the paper  costs nothing, or next to nothing. They overlook the fact that every line that is published  represents so much invested capital, so much  labor, so much time, so much expense. Printing a paper nowadays costs real money.  Machinery and maintenance of same cost. Ink  and paper cost. Setting the type, running the  press, making up the forms, doing the hundred and one odd jobs around an office, cost.  ^Getting out a paper, no matter how small,  means everlasting vigilance, judgment, discretion, an acquaintance with everybody, mechanical skill, a thick skin, a level head, musical  legs, the patience of Job, the wisdom of Solomon, and the faculty of smiling when you  don't feel that way.  by Jack Scott  PARENT PROBLEM  A YOUNG lady in her early  20's has written asking my advice * "on a delicate problem."  The young lady has been away  from home for several years  completing her education. Now,  on her return, she has become  painfully aware of a lack of  formal table manners on the part  of her mother and father. Happens with a lot of nice families.    '  "Mother insists on jumping up  and down from the table, waiting on people," she explains.  "Mother doesn't believe in wait- -t  ing while everyone finishes the  first course, but jumps up and  takes away the dinner plates out  to the kitchen. Then she comes  in with their dessert while the  others are in various stages of  the first course.  "However,   Mother  is  not  my  real problem because she doesn't  mind if I mention a few of these   '  points. But Father���he only gets  angry   and  sulks   whenever   the   I  subject   of   manners   is   brought   ,i  up. I would hate to hurt his feel-   r  ings and don't know how to make  him aware of his terrible manners."     (She   gives   several, examples, but I don't want to bust  up this family with any top positive identification.)  "I think the world of my parents. They are happy and we  have had a very happy home life  together, but these small things  are important in a home and I  would, appreciate your frank  opinion and advicer If you think  this is simply narrow-mindedness on my part, let me know?"  It seems to me that this young  woman   has   a   delayed., case   of  hyper-sensitivity   toward   her  mother   and   dad.     The-  malady  normaly afflicts sons and daugh- <  ters in  their 'teens  and usually  '  ~j>asses   without   any   lasting   ef-   (  feet. Most children reach an * age  I  when,     having     been     lovingly  brought^up  and  protected,  they \  turn on the parents  and try to ,  re-educate   them. \  The children who criticize the '  manners, speech, dress or any of  the tastes of their parents almost  always ignore the fact that they  are sampling their maturity in  a new kind of world with different standards. Often, too, the  kids are exposed to a stratum of  society one or more levels above  their parents. I suspect, for example, that our young lady has  moved about, completing her  education and getting her veneer, only because of the sacrifices of the mother and father  who, she now feels, haven't kept  up with her.  Maybe it goes deeper than this.  One knowing writer has suggested that we have a natural"  repugnance for our loved ones,  that we see in our parents "a  series of grotesque caricatures"  of ourselves.  I would suggest to the young  woman that she will have to ad?  just some <taps. She'll have to  turn off the one that looses this  flood of sensitivity and turn oil j  full the one producing her love  for her folks. -P  What this young lady forgetkv  or doesn't know, is that tfer  .guests, if they are people woith  knowing, are a good deal less  concerned about "manners" than  they are with more important  things in the human comedy.  In reality, the picture of Mom  bustling off the dinner plates  isn't anything for shame, but  pride, and instead of pointing  that this isn't according to Emily Post, a smart daughter would  jump up and give her a hand. A  long time from now, when that  mother is no longer around, the  young lady will remember this  as one of those wonderful memories of her mother and ' will  never understand her present  feeling.  The young lady says her father  gets to sulking when she points  out, his errors. I am only surprised that he has not taken her  across his knee, "early twenties"  or n6t. But probably he has that  infiniate wisdom of fathers, with  or without nice manners, who  just patiently wait for their little girls to grow up and find out  what fine fellows they are. SECHELT  By ARIES  5  A VERY pleasant surprise when  Mrs. Lydia Ross and Mrs. Jay  received a visit from Mr. and  Mrs. J. 'Birnie of Samoa, California. Mr. Birnie is Mrs. Ross's  brother and they have not met  for many years. Their stay was  very short but they enjoyed Sechelt, think it a very pretty spot  with wonderful possibilities.  Visiting Mr. and Mrs. Stuart  Killick was Mr. and Mrs. Keith  Killick and son David of Vancouver.  Away   on   a   long   anticipated*  fishing' holiday     is     Mr.   Stuart  Killick, the guest of Mr. Jimmy  Pope on the Willow Point.  Mr.  .    and Mrs. Pope were guests    at  .^iRockwood  Lodge   at  the   week-  jft end. And Mrs. Killick entertain-  ���    ed a few friends for bridge be-  {    fore  the  men  left for  the  trip.  \    Good fishin'!  [        It  will  be   nice  to   have   Mr.  and Mrs.  J.

We have had quite a few call-  \    ers lately. Always pleased to see  old friends such as Mrs. Isabella  Gait of Vancouver, a guest at  Glendalough.  And then we were to have a  surprise in going to spend the  evening with Mr. and Mrs. W.  Youngson to find visiting there  Trevor Holm, son of Dr. and Mrs.  Holm of Vancouver. Dr. Holm it  will be remembered was our  first resident doctor and very  popular he was with his charming wife, formerly Eva Elkins,  a nurse from Powell River. Trevor is a nice little chap and likes  visiting his god-parents, the  Youngsons. Other frieneds there  for the evening were Mr. and  Mrs. W. H. Henry and Miss Mon-  chief, all staying at the Inn, of  which we were pleased to hear  the^y were enjoying the wonderful hospitality and the excellent  cooking.  Also had a call from Mr. and  Mrs. Harry Watkins, who have  been coming here many years.  They are also staying at Sechelt  Inn and were very loud in their  praises on the new management  and when Mr. Watkins praises  the cuisine it really means something as Mr. Watkins has for  many years been at the Terminal  City Club where they really do  know how to do things.  We hear that Mrs. C. Clark is  home from the St. Mary's Hospital and well on the road to recovery. We feel very guilty as  it was our intention to go up by  bus,   but  our  game  leg  was  in  THE COAST NEWS, Mondey, Aug. 1, 1949  By JUDY  WE HEAR that Jim Marsh at  Irvines Landing is being- very  big-hearted to a white horse by  feeding it all his well-tended  vegetables from his garden,  which he has been all season cultivating. He may as well give it  graciously, as the horse would  take it very graciously anyways,  as he has done to so many other  hard-working garden lovers.  Sam!   Where  is  thy  musket?

Really couldn't get away.  When almost on the bus one day  when lo and behold, more visitors. We hope she sees . this and  will understand.  Really nice to see Mr. and  Mrs. Roger Green in church on  Sunday. We have missed them  very much since they moved  from Wilson Creek to Vancouver. Roger for his kindly interest in'his fellow men and Mrs.  Green for her community spirit.  Tells us that Pat is getting married in August. Time flies,- doesn't  it? So now both girls Pat and  Jo will be married.  Understand we are losing Mr.  and Mrs. Ticknor and family.  Too bad, we have all profited by  George's workmanship for there  was not much that he couldn't do,  and we do hate to lose these  nice families.  At Opengo Lodge this week,  the summer home of Bryce Fleck,  was Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Fleck  with baby Bryce, Miss Nancy  Fleck and.Mr. Bryce Fleck.  Quite nice to see Mr. and Mrs.  Shoebottam camping at Porpoise  Bay. Mrs. Shoebottam was Miss  Inglis of Gibsons, daughter of  Dr. Inglis Sr. at that point and  known to many of us on the  Peninsula.  Sorry to hear of the passing  of Mrs. Lillian Sparks of Vancouver, sister-in-law of Mrs. L.  Scott of Porpoise Bay. Mr. and  Mrs. Scott left here to attend  the funeral. It wa$ only ��� recently that we enjoyed, meeting Mrs.  Sparks here on her vacation.  in these parts, is up staying at  Irvines   Landing  for   awhile.  Frankie Lee, Bob Cameron,  Bill Cameron (where's Jim?) and  probably many more of our Pender Harbour fishermen arrived  home Saturday from Smith's Inlet. The most of them headed  for the Fraser River for Monday  morning, July 25. Sure hope they  get  "loaded"���with  fish!  Mr. S. Rose has returned home  from Vancouver General Hospital. It's nice to see you back  again,   "Pop."  Mrs. W. Turner and children  are guests of her sister and family, Mrs. C. Brown of Bargain  Harbour.  Was over looking at the  "school ferry" which is having  a complete overhauling at J.  Bakus. New planking, keel-work,  etc.���in short, Capt. Kent is making sure his boat is "sound and  seaworthy" in readiness for the  fall term.  Mrs. Betty Mikelson and family arrive today for a holiday at  the J. Baker's.  I hear Lloyd Davis is out of  the hospital at last. Hope you  are really on the road to recovery, Lloyd. An accident like that  can be a mean and painful thing.  With most of the men away,  the Harbour is very quiet these  days. The women are very busy  with their "jamming" and canning" same as yours truly.  Mr. and Mrs. Perkins, former  residents of our harbour, more  recently of Salt Spring Island,  have  purchased Allan  Stewart's  house and property at Madeira  Park, and will be moving in  early in August.  Allan Stewart is busy these  days erecting another house on  his property by Lily Lake, Madeira Park.  Mr. and Mrs. Don Boutwell of  Madeira Park were recent travellers to the city via Gibsons.  They drove that far in their new  car.  Pretty nice!  Mrs. A. Bristow of Vancouver,  guest of Mrs. D. Mcintosh of Madeira Park for the past two  weeks, returned home last "Friday  via bus to Gibsons, accompanied  by Mrs. Mcintosh, who will  spend the next few weeks in  Vancouver and Nanaimo.  Mr. and Mrs. Bill Pieper and  son Billy are away on a cruise  to Olympia, Wash., in their  cruiser Princess Capilano. Happy  cruising, folks.  Mr. Herman Madson, aged 64,  passed away July 25 at St. Mary's  Hospital, Garden Bay, after a  short illness. A resident of Pender Harbour, he had no known  relatives.  Born to Mr. and Mrs. Felix  Letain of Roberts Creek, July 20,  a daughter.  Many English taverns trace  cause monks built rest houses  their origins to monasteries, be-  for pilgrims on their way to  shrines at Rochester and Canterbury. Possibly the most famous  tavern is the Tabard Inn, celebrated in the Canterbury Tales  of Chaucer.  Bring Your Repair Jobs to Us!

Ten and a half years old Eleanor Powell, fully suported by  her 12-year-old friend, Peggy  Clarke, put on a puppet show.  What ambitious little girls! And  how they had worked!  j Eleanor, our little perfection-  �� ist, apologized beforehand for  ; their shortcomings���she need not  have worried, from the youngest to the oldest, we all enjoyed  it. Maybe we laughed in the  wrong places and were, perhaps,  a little free with our remarks  (I must hastily add that Eleanor  and Peggy took this all very  ^[ood humoredly) but this did  not detract from our interest and  liappreciation.  \ Worth a small fortune to any  show-promoter, was Peggy's little sister, Carol���her spontaneous, hearty laughter and witticisms had some of us reduced almost to tears, from time to time.  An announcement pinned to  the wall informed us that refreshments would be served immediately after the show, these  would be���sandwiches, cookies,  lemonade and, maybe���tea. The  youngsters quickly discovered  that the crossed-out word was���  cake.  The entertainment took place  in the shed at the side of the  Powell's home, though I understand the girls had originally intended holding it* out of doors,  the wind drove them in. Mr.  _.uy Powell had fixed a light for  fbe  diminutive stage    and    the  girls had made some very dainty  curtains. So there we were, sitting two or three abreast on  benches, stools or boxes and having right royal entertainment���  a bargain at 10 cents for a reserved seat (a nickle, unreserved). A strange echo was explained away on account of the shed  being so long, but I am afraid  the sad truth of the matter was,  that one of our puppet manipulators forgot her lines and was  being prompted rather loudly.  The children in the audience  greatly appreciated the scene  where the principal characters  had violent hiccups, through having eaten too much dragon���  well, we were shown the remains of the dragon and they  HAD eaten a lot, their hiccups  were so bad they almost hit the  ceiling. Came the grand finale  with all the puppets displayed  and the villainous broker's man  hanging by his neck!  The children then gathered on  the front lawn where Eleanor  and Peggy served them with refreshments. The adult section of  the audience were invited indoors where the "tea���maybe"  became tea���actually, and we,  too, were fed sandwiches and  cookies. So ended another notable effort for St. Hilda's Sunday school fund, Eleanor handed  over $3.20.  Joan Chambers and Diane  Pearson are, I understand, working on another effort for which  they are collecting small items,  so if you have anything laying  around for which you have no  use, will you remember our Sunday school fund and contact  either Diane or Joan? The only  stipulation is, that it must be  wrapped, disguised if necessary,  so that no one knows what your  donation is.  B So I have to enlarge���from a  proud mother (as I wrotee last  week) I became a proud Brownie  Guider, for all these girls, bless  their hearts, are Brownies.

KEEPING  IN  "SHAPE"  Forty plus and anchored behind a desk? Chances are you  need regular exercise to keep  that* waistline under control.

DASHING wildly up the front  steps, hurtling through the liv-  ingroom, i grabbed the receiver  oft' the phone just as that little  black dictator emitted its umpteenth shrill cry. Nursing a bruised shin and what felt like a.double greenstick fracture of the left  forearm, 1 panted a breathy  "Hello!"  An irate female voice demanded to know where the ��� (I  didn't hear that part, but it took  little imagination to supply the  missing words) I'd been for the  past hour, and why didn't I answer the phone, and why was I  breathing so lustily?  Feeling somewhat aggrieved  by the volume of sound and the  hurts to various parts of my anatomy, I snapped: "Picking-  bark!"  A rising crescendo of "Isn't  that lovely?���When did you get  him and what's he barking at?"  was not ungrammatical, it was  positively unnerving, so I took  a firm grip on my scattering wits  and replied coldly, and, as I  thought, quite distinctly:  "Not a dog! PICKING BARK!"  This elicited another volley of:  "Picking berries? Aren't you  lucky! I have had a blackberry  pie all summer!" This snappy  bit of conversation began to  sound like a broadcast of a deadlocked National Hockey League  game going into a lengthy overtime period. Minus the accompanying excitement. By, counting to 200, by 20's, I managed  to ask if there was any special  reason for the call.  Well . . . she'd forgotten why  she called the first time but this  time was just to ask why I  hadn't answered the first time.  Realizing the imminence of a  complete mental collapse if this  Abbott and Costello routine went  any further, I muttered that I  thought the house was on' fire  and that I. would call her the  minute the firemen left.  Ten minutes, two gnawed fingernails and one cigarette later  I wended my shaky way back  to the beach to survey the indirect cause of all my troubles���  the Bark.  .... Picking bark, unlike that  South American madness called  "Canasta," is not a new form of  rummy, nor does it have anything to do with cascara. It is  simply an entertaining, albeit  exhausting method of ensuring  bodily warmth when the snow  flies.  To fully appreciate the finer  points of the pastime you must  have a working knowledge of  the preliminary procedure.  Working on. the theory that  any half-wit can pick bark off  the beach when the tide has receded to a point halfway between here and the Vancouver  Island shore, the two junior  males of our family politely refrain from mentioning the fact  that the aforementioned beach is  littered from one end to the  other. I attend to the household  chores, happily unaware of the  wealth lying at my feet.  > About 5 p.m. descends the calm  that sometimes precedes the dinner hour storm. Mother and  small daughter stroll beach wards  for a sniff of that invigorating  salt-laden air. (That the 75 feet  separating house from beach effects any change in the air is  open to debate, but the difference in scenery seems to produce  a nicer sniff.)  The sea is considerably closer  than it was at noon, and there,.  floating on its capacious bosom,  ii BARK���lovely, luscious fat  pieces of bark. And so, the game  begins. t  With a rapid calculation as to  the probable rate of the rise in  tide, we (the inclusion of small  daughter in the "we" is purely  out of courtesy) gather those  pieces that are just out of reach  ���Central Press Canadlai'  Lester B.

This  first stage requires at least 10  return trips, and is carried out  at a nominal rate of speed.  Lulled into a semi-trance-like  state by the trudging back and  forth, I have forgotten the slow  but certain inroads being made  into my territory. I turn to gather  a particularly pleasing piece of  bark, to find that watery fingers are removing it; literally  thumbing a green nose in my  direction. From then on, we, the  sea and I, are engaged in a terrific battle of wills. The successful outcome of which depends on  a skill and enthusiasm unknown  to non-waterfront dwellers.  I pounce. The sea pounces. The  odds are even on the outcome of  the first round. But where the  sea has the edge for sheer weight  and endurance, I hold my own  by the combined aid of a low  cunning, determination, and the  first long stick at hand.  We feet mean nothing. The  soggy coverings are dispensed  with and the bedraggled skirt or  slacks hoisted another six inches.  Time, fire and dinner recede  into the limbo of forgotten things  . . . leaving only the Bark, the  sea and me.

Cool Cooking  SAUCES' are   used   to   enhance  the flavor and appearance of  the food with which they are  served. Sometimes the sauce adds  food value to an otherwise incomplete dish. Poor food cannot  be disguished by the most perfect sauce, but a simple food may  appear elegant and glamorous  when accompanied by the right  sauce.  One of the five basic recipes  the trained chef must master is  the white or cream sauce. It is  sometimes called "mother sauce"  because so many different sauces  are evolved from it. The home-  maker who make perfect cream  sauce has the base for dobens of  sauces, sweet, sour, piquant or  rich as the occasion demands.  A chopped hard-boiled egg, a  little grated cheese, chopped celery, chopped parsley, chopped  pickle or a few drops of spicy  meat sauce will change plain  white sauce into something special.  There are a few special sauces  which are easy to make but are  quite   different     in    consistency  NOTICE  ROBERTS CREEK  UNITED CHURCH  Meets every Sunday in the  Store Building near the wharf  at 2:30 p.m. All are welcome.

For example, a sauce that lends  the right zip to spinach, beet  greens or green beans is made  by blending a little prepared  mustard and vinegar with softened butter before adding to the  hot vegetable. As for sweet  sauces to serve on fruits, honey  as a base is excellent. A little  grated orange rind added to the  honey makes an excellent dressing for fruit salad. Whipped  cream sweetened with honey  will stay up longer than when  sugar is used.  Here are several recipes for  something different in sauce:  MINT  SAUCE  FOR  FRESH  FRUIT  1 cup fresh mint leaves  1 cup boiling water  Vz cup corn syrup  Vz cup honey  1 lemon, granted rind and  juice  Chop mint leaves and pour  boiling water over them. Add  other ingredients and let stand  in a cool place for two hours.  Strain and serve over fresh fruit.  ���Yield: six servings, about IVz  cups.
