This   matter  unable ^  ���  VIHOLOIA  XHVHSn IVrCTIIAOHd  point where wells are a thing of  the past, and certainly anything  but sanitary, with the congestion  now rapidly becoming a problem. by Jock Scott  MY DAUGHTER has started  piano lessons, without anybody twisting her arm, and seeing her at the keyboard practicing her first scales has taken my  mind back to the night my  father brought home  a banjo.  The banjo  was  a  magnificent  brute,  a  Gibson  by  name,  with  a wonderful back of shining mahogany and a long, graceful neck*  marked into frets.  I record it now with a hollow croak of laughter, but my  brother and I actually fought  over the right to master this  gleaming monster. It was a matter of lasting regret to me that  I won, that lessons were duly  arranged and I began to hate the  ching.  Even if we had been evenly  matched I think I never would  have whipped the banjo. I have  all the musical expression of a  block of wood, in the first place.  In the second, it takes a genius  to get anything resembling music  out of a banjo. I know some  music-lovers who will argue that  it has never actually been done.  My main difficulty, however,  was purely physical. At the time1  I was 14 years of age, a skinny  and small-lapped youth. The  banjo weighed only a few pounds  less than I and it was impossible  to give if a firm foundation. My  knees were always giving out  from under the banjo which  would then crash heavily on the  floor.  This was particularly true in  performing the "tremolo" in  which one or more string is  strummed rapidly on a sustained  note. The exertion of this exercise, plus the fact that I had to  strain to reach the strings, was  immense.  As it was, I was trapped in  behind the instrument somewhere,. just barely able to peep  over.the top of it. I had one  teacher who never saw anything  more of me than my eyes.  On the "tremolo," therefore,  ihe banjo almost got away from  me. Fortunately ii was of unbelievably sturdy consiruciibn  and might have been dropped  from a high building without  harm.  The real curse of the thing  was its weight. Snuggled in its  mammoth velvet-lined case, the  banjo was an ideal article for  advanced weight lifting.  My second teacher (my first  was a sensitive man who threw  up his hands in * wild despair,  after the initial lesson) lived 10  blocks from our home. I stumbled  to his studio each Tuesday after  school, savagely wishing that my  father had learned to love Ted  Lewis  and  his  clarinet.  Those 10 blocks, even now in  my memory, were like crossing N  the Himalayas with two broken  legs. The banjo grew in weight  with every step. I would have to  set it down every few feet and  change hands. When I finally arrived at the studio my hands  were invariably bloodless little  fists of pulp, the fingers curvjed,  apparently permanently, in the  shape of the handle. I was usually so weak that I could barely  lift the porcelain pick with which  one strokes a banjo's strings.  For these reasons, and ihe fact  thai I now detested ihe banjo, I  made almost no  progress in an  entire year  of taking lessons. Ii  was   ihe   delirious  hope   of    my .  teacher   thai   he   would  get  me  through    "Old     Black    Joe,"    I  never   got   farther     than     "Old  Black" without breaking down or  letting ihe banjo fall to ihe floor.  My father- had long since become   absorbed, in   several   new  hobbies,    including    home-made  loom  rugs,   and  had   cooled  off  on the banjo. The instrument had  represented    a    considerable   investment,  however,  and he was  determined   that   we   should   all  get our money's worth.  Even my mother's concern over  the 'fact that I was losing weight,  was strangely moody and picking  at my toast on mornings, had no  effect. It was not until my music  teacher paid my father a quiet  little visit that he accepted defeat.  He took the banjo off to town  one morning and returned that  night with a rowing machine.  Monday. July Eleventh, Nineteen Forty-nine  s i&i  Money Spent Ideally, brings many returns to district  WITH THE recent influx of summer residents  on the Peninsula it is brought home to us  how reasonably the local merchants sell their  merchandise as compared to other" rural  areas.  More than one visitor has remarked that  the prices here are just about the same as suburban stores in the city in spite of the freight  costs which the local merechant is obliged to  pay on everything.  A few years ago summer visitors were in.  the habit of stocking up at large Vancouver  department stores with all the  necessities  to  last them the summer.  In those days it was probably much cheaper for them to do that. Today however they  find that by the time they pay the freight on  the goods and the trucking charges at this end  that they are no farther ahead than if they  buy locally.  The visitors might well show the way to a  good many local residents in this area who still  think they can save money by ordering from  Vancouver stores or through the catalogue. Too  few take into consideration the return they  get on their money when they spend it locally.'  A part of every dollar they spend here  comes back to them in some way.  Three percent of every dollar they spend  except on foods is returned in part either as a  direct grant to the village or in the form of  improved social benefits by the provincial government. This is only a part of the return we  get on our money invested here at home.  Toill*ist$ TTlll  Come. . . if   we   create   the   demand  IT WILL take co-operation from all to make  this plan work.  First of all enough money must be raised'  to thoroughly publicize the area in Vancouver  and Seattle, second, the residents must make  every effort to offer visitors lodging wherever  possible.  At the present time there is far more accomodation than there are tourists, however,  with some effort toward inviting people to  spend their summers here this situation would  not long exist.  The average holiday costs between ten and  fifteen dollars per day per person. Supposing  only an extra hundred people came to the  Peninsula - for the three summer months, this  alone would pour between ninety and one  hundred fifty thousand dpllars into the near  empty coffers of this Eden.  These dollars might well do ten times their  value in work before they left the Peninsula���  there is a million dollars at work on the Peninsula.  ' ���"' Considered in this light it would not take  much' effort -to bring prosperity to this peninsula. It is well worth not only thinking about  but doing something about.  The need for another industry beside*- the.  logging and lumbering industry in this area  has been rather forcibly brought to our attention these past few weeks with logging camps  and pulp mills on all sides of us closing for indefinite periods.  We are now faced with the problem of living without any regular source of income.  The pinch has been felt the least in the  Gibsons area because of the influx in popula  tion from the summer visitors. The other areas  seem to be much shorter of accomodation for  these summer  visitors than  Gibsons.  It is time that a concerted effort was made  to develop the natural potentialities of the  tourist industry.  Here for the asking is a bigger payroll  than even the logging and the fishing can  bring to us. *  The skeptics reply that without good hotels  in which to accomodate people we should not  make any move to attract the tourist.  If such a course was followed everywhere  there would never be any move made to en  courage, tourists because it is only where the  need for tourist accommodation is most obvious that investors care to spend the thousands of dollars necessary to erect decent hotels. No man with business sense enough to  accumulate a large amount of money is going  to be so simple as to pass up an opportunity  of building an hotel where the need is great, to  invest his capital in an area-where there is  nothing but promise of the need for accomoi-  datipn in the future. ' _,:X...  Vancouver Island has long been a popular spot for summer visitors yet it has only  been within the past five years that hundreds  oi auto camps and new hotels have sprung up  to cater to the tourists. Before these places  were built tourists brought their tents, accepted lodging in private homes or makeshift hos-  telries and some even slept in their cars. The  point is txiat the people came first and the accomodation followed.  The same will occur here if we can create  it the demand.  Request By the Legion  important to Imperials  IMPORTANCE of Imperial war veterans complying with the request of the Canadian  Legion in its nation-wide survey to ascertain  how many such ex-servicemen would qualify  for the War Veterans' Allowance was pointed  out by James Sinclair at the concluding meeting of the election campaign!  For many, years the Legion has carried out  a strong campaign to have Imperial veterans  who have resided in Canada for 20 years, and  who can otherwise qualify, made eligible for  the allowance.  Up to now, little progress had been made.  Mr. Sinclair pointed out that now Newfoundland has become the tenth Canadian  province and her ex-servicemen made eligible  for privileges similar to those extended to  men who served in the Canadian armed forces,  the granting of the War Veterans' Allowance  could not any longer be denied to Imperial  veterans with the necessary qualifications.  The Dominion Command of theXegion has  now instituted a national survey to see how  many will qualify and have sent out forms to  all branches in the nation.  The Malaspina Branch has these forms  and its executive have asked that all Imperial,  veterans who feel they would qualify for these  Ml$t (teat Neittfi  Published Every Tuesday  at  SECHELT, B.C.  by  The Coost News Limited  Registered Office: Powell River, B.C.

The forms may be obtained from the steward at Alexander House.  The Legion, however, points out that these  forms must not be considered as an application  for the allowance.  They are but part of the preparatory survey so that the Legion may have concrete information to place before the government  when the time comes for such legislation to  be enacted.  Mr. Sinclair said that one of the main reasons the legislation had not been enacted before was because the government did not have  access to the records of Imperial veterans and  thus could gain no clear conception of the  number of such men in Canada.  The best way to expedite the legislation,  he emphasized, was to co-operate with the  Canadian Legion in its present survey.  Once a clear picture was gained the wheels  of Parliament then would be put in motion.  Bible  Message  Selected by John R. Adams  "Most people are bothered by those passages of  Scripture they don't understand; but for me . . .  the passages that bother me are those that I do  understand."���Mark Twain.  BLESSED ARE those servants, whom the  lord when he cometh shall find watching.  Verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat and  will come forth and serve them. And if he  shall come in the second watch, or come in  the third watch and find them so, blessed are  those servants. And this know, that if the  good man of the house had known what.hour  the thief would come, he would have watched,  and not have suffered his house to be brokeh  through. Be ye therefore ready also: for the  Son of Man cometh at an hour when ye think  not.  St. Luke 12:37-40.  ���Letters To The Editor  Robert Elfflacnicoi  Replies to  Mr. Sinclair  Editor, Coast News:  THE ELECTION battle in Coast  Capilano constituency is over,  and I would not desire to deny  Mr. Sinclair the satisfaction that  he must feel at having scored a  spectacular victory.  However, for the purposes of  the record I cannot altogether  allow his remarks about myself  as published in your issue of  June 25 to go unchallenged.  Having been mixed up in. the  rough and tumble of veterans  activities for over thirty years,  and experienced the difficulty, at  times, of extracting from unwilling governments, fair and decent  treatment for veterans and their  dependents, I pay little attention  to name calling by the odd politician here and there.  When they call names they are  endeavouring to cover up the  defects of the platform of their  party, which on this occasion I  criticised. *  Mr. Sinclair cannot refute  what I said in regards to the refusal of the Liberal party tq  grant war veterans allowance to  "Imperials" resident in Canada  twenty years or more.  To include under the War Veterans Allowance Act regulations,  these Canadian veterans who  served in Great Britain in the  first war, as will be the veterans  of War 11, and to increase the  basic rate of war veterans allowance for a single veteran or  widow to $50 and for a married  couple to $85 a month.  Mr. Sinclair had in his possession prior to the holding of his  meeting at Gibson's on June 6,  complete information covering  these requests.  He made use of a technicality  in the election act in order to  refuse a written reply to the  questionaire, but there was nothing to hinder him from discus-  . sing the. sub ject on the platform  without further pressure from  myself or other veterans.  If he did discyss the matter at  his meetings, no publicity 7 was  giyen .to his remarks. He played ���  safe by avoiding having tb mention the stand of the Liberal  party on these requests.  In my statement to the Coast  News on June 7, I admitted that  the government had granted an  alleged increase in war veterans i  allowances, but in the form of a r  "direct relief" grant and under a  super means test, so that only a \  few would benefit. \  Mr. Sinclair appears to . be i  satisfied with this charitable )  hand-out of his government. \  If he is, I am not and I will j  continue to support the application of the veteran bodies for an i  increase in the basic rate, this to I  be brought about by a definite {  change in the "Act".

SUPERANNUITANTS      of      all  classes are asking for assistance and are as much entitled to  it as the old age pensioners.  Unfortunately, like the trade  unions, the OAP's are demanding  a raise all round that is not in  accordance with charity.  Their drive should be aimed at  contributory pensions.  They tell us that a contributory  pension scheme would take three  years to put into operation. A  workable scheme could be put in  operation within one year,if the  bureaucrats wanted it.  G. W.  Westview. SECHELT  By ARIES  APPARENTLY there were not  so many people at Sechelt for  the Dominion Day holidays as-  formerly. We can remember  when the boats were packed and  the picnic grounds crowded. So  many people like to go where  they can go by car nowadays.  We did have a nice evening  with Mr. and Mrs. Norman Haslett, however, here from Vancouver and staying at the Inn. Mr.  Haslett is a grandson of the late  Mr. Whitaker who was one of  the first settlers in Sechelt, and  as a child lived in the home now  occupied by Mrs. Dora Doyle,  which in those days stood iri its  own grounds as the road was  more or less a trail. The Has-  letts love Sechelt and usually run  up once a year.  We also were glad to speak to  Mrs. McQuillan and her little  daughter J. J. Mrs. McQuillan  is a daughter of the late Archbishop De Pencier and is spending a little time on the Estate  with her niece and nephew, the  Vaughan  children.  Others we saw who are very  dear to us were Mr. and Mrs.  Don Freidsan and little son Donald. Mrs. Freidsan is the former  Maidie Yellowlees and has spent  her summers here with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Yellowlees, for many years, first at the  Sechelt Hotel which burned  down and then at the family cottage on the waterfront. It's so  nice to be remembered ,by these  young people.  And talking about remembering, we were delighted . to be  hailed by a very charming young  matron and to be introduced to  the husband and son���none other than the former Mary Martin,  daughter of W. J. Martin of Sechelt West. We were so pleased  as Mary spent quite a lot of time  with us when we first came out  to Canada. She is now Mrs. J.  Stanton and with her was her  sister Doris with her husband  and family. Said Doris: "You  haven't changed a bit." We think  she was just being kind but we  wouldn't have missed seeing the  girls for anything.  Also had a visit from Mrs. H.  Urquhart staying as usual at  Selma. Like old times talking  over the fun we had when they  camped at Sechelt.  Also visiting Sechelt and staying with his aunt, Mrs. Haskamp,  was Mr. and Mrs. Bob Bolster.  Bob is a brother of Ed and is  attending art school in Vancouver. Enjoyed the visit and hope  to. come again  soon.  ���  Meeting again "after 20 years  away from each other were two  cousins, Mrs. Guy Powell and  Mrs. Elaine McGuiness. Mr. and  Mrs. McGuiness came here to  visit the Powells from Winnipeg  from which Mr. McGuiness has  been transferred to Sea Island.  They have one daughter, Eleanor. They are very much in love  with Sechelt and we hope to see  them here often. Eleanor Powell  has gone to Vancouver for a  visit. After this we shall find it  difficult to have the Elaine's and  Eleanor's sorted out.  A farewell party at the home  of Mr. and Mrs. Guy Powell  when Eleanor entertained for  Lorna Grey and Barbara Morrison, both of whom left Sechelt  after school term, Lorna to go  to Campbell River and Barbara  to Vancouver. The guests included Diana and Heather McColl,  Wendy Smith, Mary Parker,'  Diana Pearson, Dorothy Larsen,  Lorna Grey, Barbara Morrison  and Eleanor Powell. The girls  were presented with farewell  gifts each from their little friends  and a very enjoyable time was  spent.

Evans of West Sechelt are Mrs.  T. Mayne and Mrs. Shaw (forr  merly Winnie Mayne) of Vancouver, who have been coming here  for a number of years. Mrs.  Mayne is mother of Jack Mayne  and first stayed in Sechelt in the  little cottage next the store in  1922. The Evans children were  small and distinguished themselves that summer by getting  the measles. Oh, dear, those were  the days.  Noticed here recently was Doctor Brown (formerly Betty Fleck)  enjoying a few days' rest with  her husband, also a doctor in  Vancouver. Says she doesn't find  Sechelt much changed but seldom gets off the waterfront when  here. They just love the quiet.  A word of welcome to some  new residents, Mr. and Mrs.  Lawson and family, who have  come to us we understand from  Lasquiti Island. We know when  they get acquainted they will  like it here so- we hope they enjoy their new home.  The view of the sunset is something to look forward to. We  have to walk to the waterfront  every night" to see it ate we live  away from the water.  It's nice to see the local girls  again  getting  employment  here.  We noticed Betty Berry in Langvs  Drug Store. And Violet Roberts  has been for some time employed at. the Waterfront Cafe. Then  there  is  Gaye  employed  at  the  Tassella Shoppe, and quite a few  others who have been employed  by the Union Steamship Co. for  the store and hotel. We think it  hardly necessary to send to Vancouver   for   outside   help   if   we  are expected to spend our money  on   the   Peninsula   to   make   the  Peninsula grow. We can now get  everything we require here. We  should  see   to  it  that  the  local  people   are   employed,     and    so  build up the payroll.  Of course  it's nice to get a few newcomers  once in  a while  who intend to  make their home here,  such as  we hope Mrs. Esson at the waterfront cafe. She likes it here and  should  be  induced  to  stay.   It's  the people who drift in for the  ' summer's   work     we     object  to  when our local girls could do the  job as well. That's what we like  about  The  Coast  News.  It's  lo-  called owned and controlled and  the boss lives here with his family. Perhaps we do make a mistake once  in a while. Well,  we  are young yet and we are sorry  that items given to us do not "appear as written or sometimes a  name is misunderstood or a line  deleted.  We   do  not  notice  this  in the bigger dailies, but it happens just the same, we feel sure.  We would like to say hello  through this column to Mrs. H.  Johnson of Redcliff, Alberta,  visiting her daughter and son-in-  law, Mr. and Mrs. Alec Grey.  We know she will enjoy her visit  to the coast.  We hope to meet sometime  "Under the Dogwoods" (name,  not place) as we used to know  Croyden very well and . lived at  Reigate. We were on that Howe  Sound trip too and could have  met. (Male -or female, we wonder.) We like the column and  for a stranger, it (male or female) does very well. Perhaps  one of these days we Coast News  people will get together and  have   ourselves   a     time.

Mow her down again, pal, mow  her down again. I verily believe  this is the theme song of some  young irresponsible drivers hereabouts. For instance, on July 1  two cars were racing neck and  neck for all they were worth  down the highway. Only by the  grace of God and a darned good  shove from a neighbor did we  escape being thrown under the  wheels. When, oh when will  these young folk realize that  everyone is not blessed with  hearing and not take these foolish chances. We did have a Highway Act in force here once* upon  a time, but recently one was  supposed to lay a charge against  any offenders kept people from  complaining alright and also let  the chap who was breaking the  law know that he could get away  with it. For after all one does  not like to go into police court  against one's neighbors and  sometimes a warning from the  police does a lot of good.  Welcome to Mr. W. C.

For Personalized Service  GIBSONS THE COAST NEWS, Mon., July 11, 1949  By JUDY  THE   SUDDEN   withdrawal     of  the daily freight service to  Gibsons by Marine Express last  week caused considerable confusion to business people who  were in the habit of relying on  the service for the transporting  of their perishables and other  freight.  There was no advance notice  given to the public about the  possibility of the service being  discontinued so that business  people were unable to make  other arrangements beforehand.  Sea Bus Lines, operating Motor Vessel Machigonne were able  to alleviate much of the congestion by handling a large amount  of the perishables on their regular runs.  Arrangements are being worked out toward arranging connections  with    Pacific    Stages    at  ^Horseshoe  Bay  and  the  Machi-  |gonne so  that this  service Siay  J be continued offering the Gibsons  (and other local people a reliable  i daily  service for    express    and  [light freight shipments.

Escorted aboard by Allen Peyser Jr. and his chum Frank Can-  ney, I was warmly welcomed by  Mr. E. Allen Peyser and Mrs.  Peyser. Mr. Peyser who is an  attorney in Seattle, chartered the  "Night Witch" for a 10-day  'cruise. They had been up to  Princess Louise Inlet, where they  met Mr. James McDonald. 'Mr.  Munroe Peaslee is skipper and  owner of this lovely ship, and  Harold Klein is first mate. Susie,  a darling wire-haired terrier is  the mascot, and I really "fell" for  her!  The "Night Witch" has an interesting history' having taken  part in the famous clipper races  from Spain to the Bahamas, and  more recently, served with the  U.S. Navy as a submarine spotter.
