 UNION CRUISE  ATTRACTS 600  NEARLY 600 people from the  Sechelt peninsula took advantage of the Union Steamships'  anniversary cruise aboard the  Lady Alexandra up Howe Sound  on Thursday  last.  in commemoration of their  sixtieth anniversary the Union  steamships made the trip available for what amounted to  25c per person.  The Lady Alex pulled away  from, the dock at Gibsons at 7'  . p.m. with a. full list of passengers, including students of Gib-  _.oi__. acnooi, wno took advantage  ox the trip to hold their gradu-  axion party. The only port *bf  ca_i was ac Port Mellon, where  another hundred people joined  the holiday throng for the trip  up the Sound.   N  a. six-piece band was aboard  and dancing took place from 8  p.-n. until tne cruise returned to  . t_*ibsons at 10 p.m.  This was the first time that a  Use. cruise had been arranged  for the sole benefit of the Se-  (jiielc peninsula, Gibsons, and  Port Mellon '. areas.  Duririg the evening a drawing  was heid, with prizes going to  iiuy iNoramaii of Port Mellon,  vv__o was presented with an electric tea kettle. A silver cigarette box was presented to the  other lucky,., ticket holder, Mr.  7i'4ioma_r" Chambers'. Mrs. Para-  dis, wife of the resident manager  o_. the Sorg Pulp Company of  Port Mellon, drew the tickets.  Tne USS presented her with a  box of chocolates.  A parody on the popular song,  "Cruising down the River" was  sung by two local songsters, Miss  Doran and Jack Jervis, whose  able rendition encouraged .the  crowd to join in the chorus.  So popular was the cruise that  a strong movement is underway  to have the USS institute more  of thern during the summer for  the benefit of the local people.

And today, the pudgy little politician who has represented the riding for the past eight years to become the  dynamic strong-man of the socialist party in British Columbia  was "just another unemployed painter/'  In what was the most significant upset in the whole  election scene, and the biggest march to the. polls in the history of local elections, Mr. Maclntyre piled up an official  total of 5,323 votes against 4,354 for Mr. .Gargrave, with six  polls to come. ;-    ;77  His official majority when the .last of the 46 polls was  heard from at noon today stood at 969.          At  press   time  today  there  were still six small outlying  polls to be heard from representing a total of 279 votes,  according to the returning officer.  Polls still to be recorded at  noon     today     were     Egmont,  Jackson   Bay,  Kingcome  Inlet  Port Neville,     Redonda    Bay,  Operations  ONE   OF   the  worst   forest   fires  Arm on the Sechelt Inlet at the  end of the week.  RESULTS-of the. balloting   in Mackenzie   riding were  indeed  very gratifying, and I would like to thank all those people  who supported me.  I fully appreciate.the. difference of political opinion  ;qmotf��;fhe :p^  over P consider it my highest duty to represent all the people  in Mackenzie no matter what their political beliefs may be.  I have said during the campaign that it will be Mackenzie  first with me ot all times, and I would like to repeat that again  now that the people have chosen me as their representative at  Victoria.  I shall keep the needs of Mackenzie ever before me during my tenure of office, and use -every facility ot my command  to bring this riding the attention it deserves as one* of the  largest and most progressive districts in the province.  The way the people rallied in every corner of the constituency, and in fact throughout the entire province, is a  striking and encouraging example of the confidence that the  people everywhere have in the calibre o'f government provided  by the Coalition and a testimony to the faith of British Columbians in the future of our province.  Personally, I hope that I shall be able to justify that  faith and confidence which the people vested in me by turning out in such overwhelming numbers to register their vote.  A great deal of personal thanks must of course go to the  staunch and' loyal campaign officers and committees who  worked so hard and diligently upon my behalf.  And .again I would like to give to each and everyone  who helped to elect me, my sincerest and deepest appreciation*  for the honor they have accorded me.  of the year was raging al the  Southview  Lamb     operations    up     Salmon       Mr      MQc!ntyre<s     percentage   on   the   9,677   votes   re-  . corded so far was 55 plus.

Tues., June 21.  1949  ROBERTS  CREEK  UNDER THE  DOGWOOD  Hello everybody!  This is my first effort for The  Coast News, and circumstances  seem to be conspiring to make  life difficult for me. I just set-  tied down to write this when  the lights went off, and I'm trying to make do with a couple of  candle-ends! The last job I had  of writing local gossip was ten  years ago, when I was on the  staff of the Croydon Times in  England. Since then we've had  quite a bit of bother and much  water has flowed. I've not been  out here six months yet and have  a lot to learn. To start with, let  me apologize for this first effort  being so personal. I'm not yet  quite in the saddle, and have  only this week taken over from  my predecessor, Carola Forst,  who will soon be residing in the  wooded glades of Wilson Creek  where her main interest in life  will be the launching and controlling of the Wonderland Camp  for girls, a new enterprise, which  in her capable hands should  prove   highlv   successful.  It is a big job to tackle and  her courage and initiative merit  the good wishes of all who  know   her.  This is a big week in many  ways for The' Creek (hurrah! the  lights have returned!). Everybody is election-minded, and we  have cuite a big wedding this  week-end too. Also, Thursday,  the 16th. a Jubilee Trip up Howe  Sound. I'll try to do justice to  these and other events in next  week's effort.  At present all I can do is sort  of introduce myself and apologize for the lack of news.  With the permission of the Editor T am hoping to write "Under  the Dogwood" for you regularly.  The title is quite genuine, because our little place is called  Dogwood Cottage���not Dagwood  ���and I do literally write under  the dogwood tree. There are a  few on our lot and one huge one  umbrellas its branches right over the roof of the house.  I'm slowly "feeling my feet"  out here, and more slowly still,  getting to see a bit of this wonderful country. Sunday last we  had a lovely run by cat up to  Garden Bay, thanks to the very  Ir'^ndly spirit of neighborliness  which prevails.   It was a grand  trip  and   we  all  enjoyed   it   immensely.  I've still to see the city of  Vancouver, as we spent a hectic  40 minutes on arrival from  England, arranging baggage etc.  and then straight on to the bus  and boat for Roberts Creek. So,  although I've been here nearly  six months I've still not seen the  "city". Just now I'm too busy to  take time off for such pleasures.  What with trying to dig a garden out of the bush, enlarge our  house, and also earn something  of a living, I'm fully occupied, as  most folks 'round here.  This is especially for people  around our part of the coast���  If you have any items of news,  large or small, which you think  will be of interest, and you don't  see me about, please leave them  with my sister, Miss Jerry Jervis at the garage, or in my box  outside   Dogwood   Cottage.  Thanks a lot.  Was it a jubilee? I'll say it  was! Lady Alexandra did herself proud tonight and with, a big  crowd on board . sailed majestically up and down Howe Sound.  I went on the school bus from  Roberts Creek and when we  landed at Gibsons there was the  steamer already well-laden ,and  cnce on board I was rapidly introduced to so many that l lound  it difficult to keep track of the  names. I don't know how a trip,  up ihe Sound affects you good  people, but to me���new from  the Old Country���the scenery  was breath-taking. All the way  up the succession of islands and  rocky headlands, the trees (so  sorry���timber!) made a wonder-  ��..._ sight. 17's really wonderful,  this land of yours.  And then we came to Port  Mellon!    ���  After we left there and got  back into the sunshine, things  began to warm up. Folks sort of  got to know who was on board  and in which cabin. The teenagers were having, a real get-  together by now, too, competing to see who could drink the  ���-.tost coke. One I know (name  of Eric)  drank seven!.  I stopped my wanderings to  have a coffee and a piece of apple pie (you people make lovely  pies, you know!) To an Englishman with a penchant for cake  and pastry this place is a paradise!  In my wanderings I saw Mr.  Truman and Mrs. Day in company with several others, all obviously having the time of their  lives and still keeping a watch  ful  and  competent  eye on  their  charges.  The Jubilee trip acted as a vehicle (in a literal sense) for the  usual cuting which I understand  the High School has, and from  what I could see, very successful,  too! By this time the dance  band had also got under way  and was hotting things up down  below, so down I went, and was  it hot!  When Capt. Yates announced  the draw, Mr. Tom Chambers  was the lucky one with guest  ticket 48���1 think���but I didn't  find out who had the other. Was-  it 412?  I met Al���to everybody���Newman. ��teg Jackson of Wilson  Creek, and also our editor, whom  I had the privilege of meeting for  the first time, along with his  charming wife. I only wish I  could remember all. the names of  the people I met.  Someone came and wanted a  vocalist, so as there was a bit of  a panic, I volunteered to back  up a young lady on the job. So  down we went to the saloon and  after being announced we waded  in and plugged two choruses of  a   revised   version   of   "Cruising  Down  the River"   Well written   gechelt Instate  even if not well sung,  although   M-w'*�����"*���'" ***���-��*<*������-��  Miss Doran sounded good to me.   pjj^Q Alarm  We'll have to  try again some  time,   Irish! > THE  FIRE  siren  in the  Sechelt  As all good things must come .district has been installed and  to an end.

Plans are going ahead  for the new Legion Hall to be  built at Madiera Park.  Jim Marsh is back on the job  again at Falconer's store, Irvine's  Landing, after an operation in  Vancouver, evidently feeling as  fit as a fiddle.

Don Boutwell of Madiera Park  spent a few days in St. Mary's  Hospital, but is up and around  again now.  Mr. and Mrs. Ed Mullen and  daughter Maureen from New  Westminster visited at Garden  Bay for a week.  Bobbie Lee of Madiera Park  was a passenger on last Friday's  Mariner, en route to Vancouver  to have further treatment on his  hand. He had the misfrtune of  badly cutting his finger-, almost  severing it, a short while ago at  work.  Lloyd Mcllwaine is spending a  week with his family at Garden  Bay, just coming down from up  north fishing.  Mrs. Russ Keillor and Mrs.  Geoff Brewster was aboard Wednesday's Jervis Express, bound  for Vancouver to spend a few  days. Their husbands expect  them back on Saturday's Mariner. (I wonder if this is wishful  thinking?)  Mr. and Mrs. Harry Yates of  Green Bay, Nelson Island, have  left for California, where they  plan to spend the next six  months. Mrs. Yates has been  "down south" most of the winter.  Lloyd Davis of Garden Bay is  now connected with Associated  Air Taxi and has installed a  radio - telephone communication  system whereby he has direct  contact at all times with the  airport.  The first of the cruisers have  started to drift into the harbor.  As usual, there are some beauties.  Mr. and Mrs. Royal Murdoch  have returned from Vancouver  after a lengthy stay owing to the  death of Mr. Murdoch's father.  Deepest sympathies are extended  to the family.  The ladies of Madiera Park  VON Auxiliary held their monthly meeting at Madiera Park  School Monday, June 13. Final  plans were made for the bazaar  and garden party this Saturday.  This was the last meeting until  September and was very well attended.  Al Lloyd returned from holiday on Tuesday. His wife says  "Cheers!" as it is some job to,  be mother, housewife, and run  the store, all one person! Maybe  Mrs. Lloyd should have a holiday now!

Mitchell Relates  Continued Growth  Ot I.W.A.  GEORGE H. Mitchell, secretary-  treasurer of the District Council, IWA, addressed a meeting in  the Legion Hall last Wednesday  evening, June 8.  Drawing an overall picture of  activities on the coast, Mr.  Mitchell emphasized the great increase in IWA membership since  the union split and the subsequent formation of the WIUC.  In the logging industry . the  IWA's prime objective is a uniform wage scale with both large  and small outfits operating on an  equal basis. He advised the  check-off system as being the  most foolproof method of dues  collecting.  Stating that the Labor Relations Board has power to act  only on signed contracts, Mr.  Mitchell pointed out that an individual has no ability to bargain, except through union medium.  He mentioned the coming June  16 meeting between IWA officials and employers for discussion of revision of contract and  expressed confidence that IWA  counterproposals would be accepted.  In speaking of the IWA as a  whole he stated that their sole  purpose is f'to raise the living  standards of the working people  ���better wages, better hours, better working conditions." Through  good and skillful handling of negotiations, concessions can be  gained. Strike action is only the  last resort.  tee have the "go ahead" now for  renewing the linen supply for  our local hospital. Last month  the W.A. to the hospital saw to  the installation of a fume hood  over the ^utchen stove at the  hospital, making it somewhat  more comfortable and cooler for  the kitchen staff.' This was constructed and. installed by Haddock's  Engineering.  vealed that the P.T.A. exchequer  is in "fair condition". The disbursement of monies will be  held' over till the September  meeting, in order that the present committee may carry on  their financial work through the  summer. The next talent night  will be held the end of September.  A report with recommendations from the May Queen Com-  mitee was given by chairman of  the committee Miss Elsie Turner.  One of the recommendations was  to the effect that the committee  be enlarged and plans for next  year be formed early.  Mrs. L. S. Jackson, chairman  of the District School Board gave  a brief report on the recent  school by-law.  Speaking for himself and on  behalf of the other members of  the staff, Mr. John Ellis expressed appreciation and thanks to the  P.T.A. for their support during  the past two years. It was with  regret that the meeting learned  definitely that Mr. Ellis will not  be here next year. To further  his academic training, he returns  to  U.B.C.   in  the fall.  A, motion of thanks and good  wishes was extended Mr. Ellis,  Miss Norma Melvin and Miss  Joan Krausert who are leaving  Sechelt and to Mrs. Ruby Jay  and Miss Elsie Turner who at  the present time expect to return.  A nomination committee of  five members was set up���a representative from each of the five  areas, in the Sechelt School Mrs.  Frank French (chairman) of Sechelt. Mrs. A. R. Grey of West  Sechelt. Mrs. Bob Cook of Porpoise Bay, Mrs. Home of Selma  Park and Mrs. L. S. Jackson of  Wilson Creek. It is hoped that,  despite transportation difficulties each area will be represented on the new slate of officers.  Election of officers will be held  at  the  September  meeting.  At the close of the business  session a distinguished visitor  was introduced, Mrs. G. W. Kis-  sock, President of the North  Shore Council of Women who  attended the meeting as the  guest of Mrs. Frank French.

The faltering CCF. used it as a claim for  votes, suggesting that the Coalition party were  endeavouring to "Buy" the votes.  We suggest that the Coalition party followed a very clever idea to a very satisfactory  conclusion. The Coalition members realized  that they had an important story to tell and  a vital message to get over to the people of  this province. At the same time they realized,  that they could not get that information over  to sufficient people by simply holding public  meetings. They realized that the most effective  way to contact the voter was through the local  you have something good to sell  newspaper. With this idea in mind they spent  a much larger sum than the CCF. on newspaper advertising. They got their message over  to the people and they won their point with  a tremendous landslide.  We don't suggest that the. newspapers can  beneiit an unworthy cause with advertising,  but we do strongly feel that when there is an  important message with sound foundations it  can best be presented through the local newspaper.  The Coast News feels proud that through  the support of its subscribers and its local advertisers it is able to exist so that it can serve  in such important issues as the school plebiscite  and the Provincial election just past, and the  lederal election on June 27.  WHEN OVER six hundred people turn out  for one event such as they did for the  Union Steamships' cruise up Howe Sound on  Thursday, it indicates there are a lot of people in the area. It also proves that when the  people of this Peninsula are offered something  that appeals to them they will go to considerable trouble to take advantage of it.  About one-half of the six hundred people  who went on that cruise had to travel by bus  or their own cars to Gibsons to catch the boat,  some of them coming from as far away as Half  Moon Bay.  We are sure that the reduced price of the  cruise was not such a drawing card that people ������  would travel over thirty miles to take advantage of it; it must have been that a purely  local excursion cruise up Howe Sound appealed  to the people of this district. We feel sure that ��  just as many would have turned. out had the  cost of the trip been one dollar. :  It is time we on this Peninsula started  thinking of ourselves not as a small group of  hamlets,  but  as  a  large  group  of   important  The College of Meditating TiliS PeSlMIS  Young Man pipe-smoker heads  my list of obnoxious types. Here  we have a character who uses  the pipe as a kind of badge of  distinction.  In ray city editor days it was  one of my tasks to hire a university man to act as campus  correspondent for the newspaper.  This is where I first encountered  the youuthful pipe smoker, a  fellow who carried two volumes  of Schopenhauer under one arm,  batted his eyes nervously and  whose stories always seemed to  be little masterpieces of beautiful prose, but unfortunately unintelligible.  And always they smoked large  pipes, or, at least, they smoked  them when an. body was around.  These fellows used to say "Yah?"  when spoken to. I don't know  what this proves, but somehow  it is part of the story.  A  similar  type   is  the  Rising  Young  Businessman   who  seems  equally   lost   without   his   brier.  I know several of    these    birds  who, in an effort to seem mature  and wise beyond their years,  never reply to a direct question  without first peering quizzically  into the bowl of their pipe or  shining the grain on the sides of  their nostrils, a gesture which,  for no good reason, comes near  driving me out of my mind.  These young men also use ihe  pipe (usually a Kirsfen, if you're  interested) to point out things. In  conversation a fellow has got to  be mighty nimble io avoid getting a nasty wound from ihe  weapon. He is lucky io escape .  with nothing more serious than  a few careless embers spilled in  his lap.  Even with old-time pipe smokers such irritating habits seem  inevitable. At almost the very  next desk to mine, for instance,  sits one of these human locomotives who, when absorbed in  thought, taps the pipe stem repeatedly against his lower teeth.  I try desperately to ignore this,  but it can't be done. I have to  run away to the men's washroom and stare at myself in the  mirror for a long time before I  regain my calm.  Apart from the undeniable  fact that a pipe gives a man an  air of intellectual serenity; I  can never understand how a  man gets a life-long attachment  to an old corroded root.  As an occasional eye-witness  at the cleaning and fumigating  process pipes require, the only  advantage I can see is thai it  might be just the incentive needed to give up smoking completely.  Indeed, I spend many miserable hours surveying my friend  at the next desk. He is constantly mixing various brands  of tobacco   which  he  puts  in  a  rowingg ... The   cruise   proved   it  places. It is time we made It evident that  there are enough people on this Peninsula to  demand and support such consideration as  special cruises, good hotels, and generally-  improved facilities.  We have lots to tell the world about but  we don't seem to have any central agency that  will speak for us. It is time we formed a  Peninsula-wide organization that would and  could speak for the Peninsula, and not just one  section of it.  Gibsons Board of Trade has made the  first step in this direction with the appointment of a committee that will keep a close  liaison with the other two Boards functioning  on the Peninsula and report back to its members on their activities.  When such a committee is formed by the  other two Boards we will have the nucleus of  a body that can and will be a voice for the  Peninsula, and as such will represent about  12,000 people.  Such a voice commands respect from both  business   and   government.  Cheap Car Transportation .'-.. Rates now in effect  INFORMATION of interest to summer visitors  and tourists alike who miss their cars  when visiting this Peninsula has come in the  form of an announcement that cars can now be  shipped from Vancouver to Gibsons for five  dollars.  This information has failed to receive the  type of publicity it warrants, for some reason.  Everyone on the Peninsula who is corresponding with prospective summer guests or friends  should make a point of advising them that  this new reduced fare' is now in effect.  Other Opinion.  Tribute to Pioneers  LAST FRIDAY, pioneers from Delta, Surrey  and Langley gathered at White Rock for  their 22nd annual ~ reunion. There were men  and women there who first came to this district over 70 years ago; dozens who 60 years  ago were helping build the Surrey of today.  We are a very young community, but few  Wr)t (BntiBt W?ttts  Published  Every Tuesday  at  SECHELT,  B.C.  by  The Coast News Limited  Registered Office: Powell River, B.C.

The cars can be loaded in Vancouver in  the evening and will be waiting at Gibsons  when the owners arrive in the morning.  This could well be the first step toward  making The Peninsula the place to go for the  summer. Once people become aware oft the  fact that they can not only take advantage of  the,best fishing, finest scenery, nicest weather  (and so on!) in the province, but that for a very  reasonable fee they can bring their own cars  up, the stream of tourists should be steadily  greater.  districts have seen greater changes in such a  short time. It is difficult to visualize the  physical aspect of the early day settlements.  Most of Surrey was covered by magnificent  stands of timber���mute evidence remains in  the rhuge stumps which even today must be  blasted and bulldozed when land is cleared.  Road communications were sketchy, and  the settlements were little more than sparse  clearings in the solid bush country. We honor  the pioneers for their courage and industry;  their willingness to work and plan and struggle to establish themselves, and to build up all  the community facilities and services which  we take for granted.  Perhaps most striking is the keen interest  the pioneers took in their community affairs.  Old-timers will tell you of men who walked  the rough trails from Hazelmere to Surrey  Centre to attend meetings; or rowed a boat  across the mar-sh at Fry's Corner to attend  from Port Kells.  We of a newer generation honor the old-  time residents, and can take an example from  them in many things. We could do well to  follow their example of courage, will to work,  self-reliance, neighbourliness and interest in  community undertakings.���Surrey Leader.

A dog owner, myself, I agree  with you perfectly���as far as  you went.  As you know there are several  breeds of dogs, only a few of  these dig holes. There are other  breeds with far more destructive  habits. I'm speaking of the mooing neigh-ing variety. They visit  me in packs, and don't just dig  up my garden, they eat it! They  lurk "^behind bushes at side of  the road and leap out directly  in front of my car as I attempt  to pass They get under my window at night and make horrible  gulping choking noises at they  pull up and masticate my flora  (.or  is   it fauna).  Some of these "dogs" haven't  been home for months I'm sure.  How do I know? Simple, my dear  Watson They've been right in  my own back yard! One of our  neighing visitors has veen been  in my kitchen. He walke'd in for  a drink of water and was impolite enough to knock the basin  to the floor when he had  enough.  My dog does a-courting go, at  decent intervals, but he doesn't  eat the neighbor's corn, carrots,  berries or rhubarb, and I feed  him regularly.  Fences? You say? Oh no! I  watched a "moo-ing" breed leap  like a gazelle over a 42 inch  fence into what was my strawberry patch. . '<  I have infinite patience! I have  tried many things. I have spoken \  eloquently of "Peace" to these ���  animals of "Humanity's Inalien- '  able Rights". Then I tried "Mediation", even offered them half  of my garden, to no avail. In  desperation I finally resorted to  an "Armament Display", to  . prove my might in case of  "War". (This consisted of a strategic placement of my fire-arms  and included an unloaded shotgun of which I'm deathly afraid,  an air-pistol, and my small  daughter's Red Ryder whistle  and click gun.)  It was a dismal failure. They  didn't even raise ,their heads  from what had been my lettuce,  carrot and radish patch!  Seriously, though, don't you  think the days of free range are  over? Don't you think that people who can't afford to feed  their animals or provide pasture  for them, any time of the year <  should not attempt to keep ���  them? j  Because a few people don't j  keep their "dogs" at home, all  of us, even in the village, must  have a five foot fence with a i  padlock on the gate. (Oh yes!  They can "lift the latch and  walk in!")  We are.agreed! People should  take care of their "dogs".  Yours sincerely,  Charlotte Vannatta.  P.S.

Mr. Grey lauded the energy  and enthusiasm of the new President John Coleridge and urged  the members-to support him to  ./-the fullest.  In accepting office John Coleridge thanked the members for  the honour and pledged that he  would exert untiring efforts to  further the interest of the district through board work.  Mr. Coleridge felt that great  benefits can be gained from the  experience of the old members  and urged them to take an active  interest in the activities of the  Board. He also suggested that a  concrete association with the  B.C. Tourist Association should  be made in order to further publicize the Penninsula.  Jim Veitch urged that the constitutional by-laws of the Board  be followed more closely during  the coming year. He urged that  the Board of Trade work toward  instituting better business practices in the community urging  that by-laws be complied with  in so far as they apply to closing  ho\irs etc.  Mr. G. W. Evans of the Black  and White store, attending . his  first Board meeting suggested  that the Board should look into  the possibility of getting telephones immediately for the  Headlands district. He pointed  out that in the case of fire or  other emergencies there was no  way .of getting help other than  sending a runner into Gibsons.  He also suggested that a move  should be reintroduced to have  ��� the Headlands district become a  part of the village of Gibsons.  R. Telford made the suggestion that the Board should try  and have the local taxis institute  a plan whereby at least one  taxi would meet incoming boats.  He--declared that there had been  several occasions recently when  no taxis had been on" hand to  meet boats and he felt that this  was poor publicity to the tourists.  The executive council was set  up with each member heading a  committee as follows: R. Telford, Finance; Noble McDonald,  Publicity; Jack Marshall, Liaison  (a committee to work in conjunction with the other Boards on  the Penninsula on Penninsula  projects); C P. Ballantine, Membership; Jim Veitch, Trade, and  Industry; G. W. Evans and G. W:  Anderson, Local Affairs; A. Gardiner, Entertainment; R. Godfrey, National Affairs, and Mrs.  Reilly, Welfare.  Mr. J. Drummond read the  secretary's Report of the actvities  of the past year and thanked the  members for the honour of again  electing him to the secretary's  position for  this  year.  Lloyd Howarth, vice president  ahd chairman of the beach clearing committee expressed his disappointment at the poor turnout  at past work parties but appointed two parties to work in . the  evenings of last week.

Kissock, president  of the North Shore Council of  Women, speaking on behalf of  "Batt" Maclntyre, Coalition candidate for the Mackenzie riding,  addressed half a hundred women in the Legion Hall at Sechelt,  Saturday, June 10.  Mrs. Kissock, who stated that  she is-'"not a speaker but merely a housewife gone vocal," has  been interested in women's  groups for the past 10 years and  feels that if the level of politics  is to be raised, women must do  it. She has just completed a  speaking tour in the interior of  the province and has had what  she herself terms "the honor" of  addressing several purely Indian  groups.  Mrs. Frank French acted as  chairman of the meeting.  At the close of the address the  presentation of a. corsage of red  rosebuds ..to Mrs. Kissock was  made by Mrs. William Young-  son.  Following the meeting, a soft  musical background, a hum of  casua] conversation, an attractively appointed tea table and  the smart attire of the feminine  guests   all combined  to  make  a  very pleasant tea hour.  Co-conveners of the tea were  Mrs. Syd McKay and Mrs. Frank  French. Asked to pour during  the afternon were Mrs. N. E. C  Arnold, Mrs. Duncan McCall,  Mrs. William Youngson, Mrs. G.  H.

CATCH THEM EARLY  It was formerly thought that  the condition of a mother's teeth  must deteriorate during her  pregnancy, but it is now known  that there is no good reason to  believe that the process of bearing a child must hasten tooth  decay. But neglect of the teeth  before and during pregnacy often  causes much unnecessary suffering. Dental defects should be  treated early in pregnancy and  the teeth should be kept in good  condition throughout the period.  4 DAYS ONLY  Sat.

To  begin with, we had our regular  meeting in Miss Melvin's room.  We had collection, discussing of  various matters, and a nice long  sing-song. We learned some new  songs, one was "Old Texas," and  the   other   (you   may   know   it)  . "The Old Hungarian Round,"  also, "Where is John?"  Now for the big happening of  the week���our big beach fire.  We rnet at the Union Store and  then with our guests, the Residential School Guides, went up to  the spot where we were to have  the fire.  First we gathered a nice amount of wood, and then we had  a scavenger hunt, which was  loads of fun. The winners were  judged by the amount of things  they found.  Then we all sat 'round the  camp fire and received our large  plates of three different kinds of  salad, weiners, buns and pop.  We bought the pop. After eating we asked the Indian Guides  to choose some of their songs.  They are lovely singers and we  thoroughly enjoyed their songs.  Thanks to Mrs. Williams, our local baker, we received a lovely  big birthday cake with one candle in the center, to show that  one year ago we were, enrolled  as Guides. Miss Melvin made  out all right blowing it out. Much  to our surprise the Indian Girls  sang us "Happy Birthday".  The  ������ cake was decorated with white  icing   trimmed   with   blue.

The way in which we learned  the girls' names was by forming  a circle, alternating our members and our visitors, and then  Miss Melvin asked who was on  '   our right or left.

Pender Harbour, B.C.  War     Veterans     Allowance,     if  otherwise  qualified.  On June 1 of last year, the  House of Commons Parliamentary Committee refused this request by a vote of 13 to 10. All  13 Liberals voted against the  proposal, and ten members of the  opposition parties favored the  request.  The Canadian Legion requested that War I Canadian Veterans, with service in Britain  only, in the first Great War be  granted War Veterans Allowances, as will be done in the  case of War II veterans.  On June 1 of last year, the  House of Commons Parliamentry  Committee refused the request  by a vote of 13 to 12. All 13 Liberals voted against the proposal  of the Legion and the 12 members of the opposition parties  favored  the request.  My statement in this connection can be confirmed by a perusal of Reports No. 19 and 20,  covering the proceedings of the  Parliamentary   Committee.  It would give me pleasure to  debate this subject with any  member of a political party  who would attempt to defend  the action of the "Liberal" Government in turning down these  reasonable requests.  In recent weeks the Dept. of  Veterans Affairs made a special  survey of the conditions under  which recipients of War Veterans Allowances are existing at  this time. ^  I challenge the Government to  make public some of these reports. If they did, it would be  found that ,some veterans of the  "First" War were living under  deplorable poverty sticken conditions, no credit to a country  like Canada.  Yours truly,  Robert Macnicol.  SIMPLE ANSWER  Secret Cove.  Editor, Coast News.  SIR���READING   your     editorial  "Tourists in B.C."  The answer is so simple for  this beautiful peninsula of ours.  A Car Ferry!  Several of our friends from  the U.S.A. have been here, but  can't understand why we have  not a car ferry. They do not like  the stopover at Vancouver or to  leave their car there. With a  car ferry this peninsula will  boom and prosper. That's for  sure.  Mrs.   E.  Willison.

The group, members of the Overseas Scots' Reunion Club, were  a part of the 120 who chartered planes to attend the Grand  ^Reunion, first since 1938. The trip was arranged by James  Arthur (left) of Winnipeg who makes it his hobby to organize  such tours. The group will visit friends and relatives in Scotland during an eight-weeks period and will return by North  Star. In deference to an old Scottish custom the plane will fly  up the Clyde and circle Glasgow. Every province in Canada  is represented.  BRITANNIA BEACH  By "SLIM"  mmmmmmmmammammmmtmimmsaaaaasa,maaamtamtmmmmtm  HI,  FOLKS!  Had a grand day last Sunday  at Port Mellon visting Wes'  aunt, Mr. and Mrs. J. Kennedy.  The North Star Explorers had  a June tea on June 4. It was  very well attended. It was so  nice to see such a nice crowd  all afternoon. Tickets were sold  on a child's knitted dress and  panties and on a quilt made by  the Explorers.  The ticket for the dress was  drawn by Hannah Swanson,  number 33 (yours truly's number):  The quilt is being drawn for  this afternoon at the Beach  Ladies' Auxiliary tea and sale of  work, so I'll tell you next week  who  the lucky  winner  is.  Well, the schools had their annual school races, held at Squamish between Woodfibre, Britannia and Squamish.  I believe Squamish still are  the champions and won the cup  again. I haven't much news on  it but by pthe display of ribbons  that came back to the Beach, I  think our boys and girls did all  right. Good luck for next year.  Mr. John Copland is having  the time of his life in England.   ���  Mrs. Todd, who lives here on  the trail, has also arrived in  England for a visit.  Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Ackers, residents of the Beach for years, left  yesterday on a trip to England,  via the Panama Canal, and are  visiting Belgium, where Mrs.  Ackers was born. So happy sailing to all of you lucky people.  The infant daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. Harvey Newell was  rushed by speedboat to Vancouver yesterday, very ill, and so  far have no more news about  her. We've all got our fingers  crossed.  ��� Glad to report our Agnes McDonald is out of the hospital  but is not home yet.  Well, folks, that's all I have  time to write as I have work to  do before going to the tea. So  Cheerio.

Approximately 500 persons are  employed at "Woodfibre and  slightly more at the other mill.  Closure is for an indefinite  period, but the company says  that it expects to be able to ship  the rayon pulp again as soon as  huge inventories in U. S. textile  mills are back to normal.  "American mills have found  themselves with large stocks at  a time when prices are dropping  and they have automatically decided to cut down their inventories" an official of the company said.  "There is no need for alarm  in the closure, because we don't  see any change in the long run.  Rayon is still tne most popular  textile and the mills will begin  buying   again."  another son, her fourth. Too bad.  Fern, but congratulations, anyway.

GIBSONS and Port Mellon played a benefit game for Marv'  Volen, who was very unfortunate  at the Port Mellon game a week  ago, fracturing his wrist in a collision  at second base.  Port Mellon very willingly  came to Gibsons to play a benefit, but not so kindly trimmed  the local boys to the tune of 9 to  17 A very fine turnout of supporters,   turned   in   the   sum   of  almost $40 for the benefit. We  are looking forward to these  Sunday evening games, and if  the boys will give us some real  baseball, then they'll get the  definite support from all the  baseball fans around. The snappy red uniforms, give the boys  that real professional look, and  they can give us a real brand of  bail,  so how about it boys.  Use This  SUBSCRIPTION  FORM  Now!

For several years now it has  not been led by a kiltie, but this  year Angus McColl was here in  full dress parade and it sure got  things off on the right foot.  The Queen looked very regal  in a white sheer dress and carried a beautiful bouquet, her  blonde curly hair falling beneath  the crown of copper, her "attendants .all in pastel  shades.  The retiring Queen, Faye Settle, looked just as lovely, also  her attendants.  After the crowning, sports  were to follow but it poured and  I mean poured. So they were  held Sunday afternoon and had  the ball game Sunday night between the Townsite and Beach.  We lost, 5-4, but it was a good  game. In the evening a dance  was held from 8:30 to 10 for the  children, then they had sandwiches, cake and ice cream in  the  upper  club   room.  So all were very tired but  happy children. All those who  helped make this day of days  a big success deserve a big hand.  I had company up for three  days for the celebration, Mr. and  Mrs. F. Smith, Mr. Alex Will  and Jim  Stevens.  Would like to welcome new  "Trail" neighbors, Mr. and Mrs.  Lorenger, who have moved into  Mr.  Reagh's house.  Also sorry to say we lost Trail  neighbors Mr. and Mrs. Jack  Reagh and family, and wish  them good luck.  Our Agnes McDonald, who  was taken down on the stretcher,  is progressing favorably and is  in the private ward pavilion of  the General Hospital. So Hello,  Agnes, from all the gang. We  miss you very much.  Jack Frandle, who has also  been in the hospital, is now out  and progressing.  Our George Taylor is still in  the hospital in St. Paul's. Let's  not forget him, gang.  The North Star Explorers held  their initiation in the church last  Wednesday, attended by their  mothers and friends. After the  service, games and contests were  enjoyed by all.

"I often think,".she said, "that  one of the main points about  travelling is to develop in us a  feeling of that solidarity, of that  oneness without which no new  world is possible.  "We want to feel that this  round globe is all ours, like our  parents' house when we were  children. Based on my personal  experience I timidly propose to  use the following definition. The  true traveller is the one who is  urged to move about for physical, affective, intellectual, as well  as spiritual reasons.  "It is true one also travels to  ;un away from routine. One trav-  _ls in order to learn once more  flow to marvel at life in a child's  way. Yes, one travels to escape  from it  all."  But Miss Maillart stressed the  !!act that escape is not everything  and quoted from Antoine St.  Exupery, "One runs away in  Search of wide horizons, but a  mde horizon cannot be found���  t has to be rooted, substantiated  n us. Escaping never leads us  mywhere."  She agreed that this could sum  *p her own life, for the wideness  jf the horizon must be in us.  'To enjoy reality one has to meet  t in action," she said. "Passivity  or contemplation cannot lead to  full life."  She began her travels by sailing in the Mediterranean and the  .Atlantic. She earned her living  neanwhile by teaching, typing,  writing, going on the stage. She  earched for happiness and fulfilment in Moscow, then amongst  he Central Asian tribes.  And then came her journey to  Tibet, that remote land where it  Iras "normal to belong nowhere  >r everywhere, to feel one is an  iternal traveller." She discover-  id rich contentment away from  ler people and friends, without  c roof in winter, at an altitude  if 12,000 feet, with two cups of  iarley flour a day, at ease in a  eality which was a void. ,  j "Europe was forgotten," she  aid, "immensity, solitude was  becoming, part of me, was being  elated to me. It was unveiling  , few of its many meanings.  i "Man is a knot of relationships;  !e is fully developed when he  Necomes directly related to a  lumber of people, feelings, countries,  ideas.  > "And I* was becoming related  ip primitive life. The more you  become detached the more you  ?njoy life; the more you live  hilly the present minute. But to  ;ease desire you .must have felt  ihat fullness is in you���not outside you.

His searching will determine his finding and it might be  the wisest man who finds it in  his church or his cabbage patch."  And then by force of circumstances she went to Southern  India in 1940 and she said, "I  slowly discovered what I had  beeri unconsciously looking for  during my adventurous jorneys.  At last I had time to sum up,  to weigh my travels in my heart  ���not in the balance of time and  space. Slowly they had led me  to what matters  most.'  "I found myself, which is the  same as to say I found the way  to become freed from my preposterous   ego. *  ' "Now I know that there is a  way to the unchangeable centre  ���that core which is the same in  all of us.  "At last I can sincerely try to  love my neighbor as much as  myself.  "Feeling whole, I. can march  with patience towards that unity,  the oneness which we all feel is  the ultimate as well as the first  word of life."  William Shakespeare did a  brisk business at the British In?  dustries Fair. He is an East England manufacturer of artificial  eyes suited, he says, to every  human eye on the face of the  earth. At the end of the war he  switched over from the glass to  the plastic type and has since  then built up export trade all  over the world. Russians, Chinese, Africans, Americans and  Europeans are among his clients  for a product which he claims  is unequalled for matching power and general high quality.  Gibsons Council  Explain Sprinkling  Restrictions  By E.  NESTMAN  AT MEETING of the Council at  Gibsons, Clerk Burns reported  on   the   meeting     of     Municipal  Clerks, held at Victoria recently.  It   is   interesting   to   note   that  many   other  villages   and   municipalities   are   having   their   financial,  and  water  troubles  also.  It   was   noted   there   is   a   large  water   undertaking   at   Campbell  River, where the clerk is obliged  to receive at least $2000 a month  as water monies to keep the payments   of   their   bond   issue   up.  Their  water  rates    are   $2.50   a  month   with   a    25   cent   meter  rental, this is for 5000 gallons of  water, after that water rates go  up as water is used. This is only  one village having their troubles,  and this will go on for approximately  20 years until the bond  issue is paid off.  Complaints from villagers  were read pursuant to the water  sprinkling ban in effect here at  this time. This is an old by-law  on the books for many years, and  is still in force, ^and will be enforced. It is regretable that one  cannot water at will, and no one  would be more pleased if the  situation were reversed and water was abundant. Gibsons has  lots of water, but with the severe hot weather, more and more  water is being used " in every  household, with more visitors  there is a severe drain on the  water system. Water must be  conserved, and so sprinkling re-  structions are in force now, and  will. be enforced..  AT A MEETING of the School  Board in Gibsons on Monday  night, the by-law for schools was  given final reading. Board will  now request the Department of  Education for certificate of approval, -which will be after a  month's  waiting  time.  They will then notify the architect, who will present working  plans to the board, with some  changes if necessary-. The board  will arrange for financing. When'  plans are completed tenders will  be called.  Mr. V. Z. Manning, inspector  for this district, will be retiring  in September.  Bids for tenders on cutting of  wood for schools, have been very  slow in coming into the Board, in  some areas west, no bids have  been received at all.  Resignations have been accepted from the following teachers.  Miss Friesen, Port Mellon; Miss  R. Beattie, Bowen Island; Miss  Joan Krausert and N. Melvin,  Sechelt;. Miss C. Ferguson, Roberts Creek; Miss M. Yarrow, Irvines Landing; Miss D. Critoph  and E. Fodchuk, Pender Harbour;  Miss E. Jensen, Halfmoon Bay;  Mr. J. Ellis of Sechelt, has been  granted a year's leave of absence.  A new high school room will  be added at Gibsons, and teacher  appointed to help in High Scool  DEFEATING DIPHTHERIA  For the seventh consecutive  year deaths from diphtheria in  Britain have been the lowest  ever,, recorded.

June 21. 1949  Gargrave's Statement  u  Will Be Back  53  Before Next Election  LIKEMacARTHUR, " I will be back."  The free enterprise system has won and I hope Mr. Maclntyre can make it work.  I hope he can supply the men for the new pulp mills  starting up when the present ones close down.  I am convinced that the Coalition delivered the Indian  vote solidly and well.  I said if Mr. Maclntyre was elected he would walk to  Victoria on his hot dogs and that is what he is doing.  I wish Mr. Maclntyre all the luck in the world and I hope  that in his particular revision as fpr as the sales tax and  I.C.N. Act is concerned, he will be able to persuade Coalition  to put them into effect..  I hope to unionize Mr. Maclntyre's hotel before the year  is out.   I hope I will be up there on his wage proceedings.  Our organization worked as well as we ever worked.  We got all the votes we thought we would get.  I am not a bit worried about the final results for I feel  I have left more friends in Powell River than before I was  elected. /  I pay tribute to the people who worked for me.  I know the people who supported me feel stronger about  this defeat than I do. I am now an unemployed painter but  I will be back before the next election,  in another capacity.*  Apart from the Powell River News I think "the press  coverage was good, and I think the Saskatchewan Story helped  the Coalition win in no small way.  ���w&K'M \*&2  MORE ABOUT  Batt's Big Lead  Continued  from   Page   1  an 84 percent vote was registered, Maclntyre pulled in 719 votes  to  Gargrave's 423.  This was a definite gain over  1945 when the CCF polled 501  to the Coalition's 359.  Unexpected trend for Coalition  was recorded for Lang Bay  where the voters cast 67 for Maclntyre and 63 for Gargrave.  Last time the Coalition candidate polled only 20 against Gar-  grave's 34.  In Cranberry where the CCF  claimed a majority of 227 over  the Coalition in 1945, Mr. Maclntyre received the vote of 300  compared to 381 for Mr. Gargrave.  Percentage vote in Cranberry  was 82.  Mr. Gargrave, however, took  the lead in Wildwood with 207  votes to Maclntyre's 173, but  here also the latter showed a  definite increase over last election.  Returns from points outside  Powell River district showed an  equally surprising trend. s  In the previous election Powell  River district gave Gargrave a  majority of 647, but the outside  polls gave him a majority of  only 16.  This time, however, it was a  different story.  In Bella Bella, for instance,  Maclntyre polled 181 compared  to Gargrave's 3, and in Gibsons  Batt drew in 479 to Batt's 290.  In ��echelt, Maclntyre raked in  more than twice the votes the  CCF did-with 287 compared to  110 for Gargrave.  Ocean Falls credited Mr. Gargrave with 173 votes more than  his opponent with 592 and 419,  respectively.  Lund remained in the CCF  camp to the tune of 25 votes with  69 for Bert and 44 for Maclntyre, as did Wildwood with 207  for the CCF candidate and 173  for Maclntyre.  Woodfibre accorded Gargrave  45 more votes than the Coalition  candidate and the former had  the edge in Blubber Bay, False  Bay, Gillies Bay, Margaret Bay,  Refuge Cove, Shoal Bay and  Wadhams.  In Port Mellon, although Mr.  Gargrave received the majority  of 47, the trend was to the Coalition since it was quite a reduced  majority from last time.  Although .the first returns in  kr.pt Batt down to a nine-vote  lead until. 8:45, the spirits of  those in Coalition headquarters  kept rising steadily as the swing  became obvious almost from.the  start.  At nine o'clock when Westview  boomed in with its surprise package, Maclntyre's campaign committee began to relax and figured  the candidate was "home free."  The    confident    and    jubilant  pre-election  feeling  in the  CCF-  suits   showed   Gargrave   trailing  by   304  votes   with  most   of  his  strong  districts  heard  from.  When Sechelt returns came in  shortly after 9:30 followed by the  headquarters, however, began to  dampen by 9:15 when the re-  big surprise at Bella Bella, it began to look like curtains for Mr.  Gargrave.  At 10 p.m. when 34 of the 52  polls had been recorded giving  Batt a lead of nearly 800, the  signboard at Coalition headquarters said "Hurrah!" under Maclntyre's name and "Too bad!"  under Bert's.  From then on it was all over  but the shouting as far as the  Coalition was concerned, but Mr.  Gargrave, staggered by the  count, refused to concede _ "until  the last vote is counted."  Asked again later, when all  hope had vanished for his reelection, if he would concede, his  answer still was the same.  Still to be tabulated besides  the six late polls are -the absentee votes and if this is heavy .it  could adversely effect Mr. Maclntyre's majority to some extent,  hut would not threaten his victory.  thing less than it has been during the past 10 years, the years  when it was a militant, marching  force.  J'here was noticeably less enthusiasm, perhaps caused by too  much overconfidence, which revealed a lack of planning, for  ridings like Mackenzie (with two  large industrial centres and several smaller ones) are not easy  for socialists to find, although"  thev are the easiest to win and  hold.  Gibsons Institute  Holds June Meet  The June meeting of the Gibsons Women's Institute was held  recently at the home of Mrs.  Metcalf.  President Turner opened the  meeting with nine members  present. The W. I. creed was repeated and each member was  called upon for a favorite pie  recipe. The next meeting members will be expected to have  cake or cookie recipes available.  Notes of thanks were read by  the secretary from Mrs. Knowles  and Mrs. Gordon. A letter from  Mrs. Gummow, provincial superintendent, thanked the W. I.  for the photo of the community  hall that had been sent.  A whist drive is planned for  Julv 6 at the home K of Granny  McEwan, in aid of the building  fund.  Approval for the extension of  the W. I. signboard for use of  church notices was given by the  members.  Photo by Bdllentyne  GOLDEN WEDDING ANNIVERSARY of Mr. and Mrs. G. A.

LOGGER MUST  PAY DAMAGES  PENDER HARBOR��� Helge  Borup, logger, was ��� assessed $585 damages in Supreme  Court Thursday in Vancouver.  Evidence showed he had  trespassed on the summer resort property of Ernest M.  Cotten at Sakinaw Lake and  had cut 26,000 board feet of  logs. Plaintiff charged that  the cut logs were of no value  as the costs of getting them  out were prohibitive.  He said^the defendant had  created a "fire hazard by not  burning the slash and had  marred one of the beauty  spots of the Lake.  Mr. Justice Coady awarded  Cotten $7 per thousand for  the timber and $400 damages  to the property.- He was represented by G. R.R McQuar-  rie.
