Array ' THE APPROPRIATION of $75,-  000 additional monies lor Public Works for the Sechelt Peninsula has definitely "been approved and the money is to be  i spent in widening and surfacing  the section of the highway which  runs through Gibsons and on  6 other work to be decided upon  later.  Besides widening and surfacing the highway through Gibsons, a large hump in the road  | between Howe Sound Trading  ^and Bals block will be removed.  [This work will cost about $25,000.  This work* let to a Vancouver  contracting firm will commence  within two weeks, it was indicated last week by B. M. Mclntyre,. MLA, who has just return-  frpm a trip to Victoria.  \ Mr. Maclntyre plans to make  n inspection tour .of the rest of  he Peninsula with an engineer  rom the Department of Public  fVorks to determine where the  ��56,000 balance of the appropriation should be spent.  Such projects as the Halfmoon  ay cutoff will be given close  [crutiny at that time.

The  doctor who made this discovery  says its because of the Automobile Age. We. are all riding  around with our legs tucked up  under us. Sure enough, they're  getting shorter.  If it keeps up this way, this  fellow says, we eventually will  have no legs at all. Football  games will be the funniest  things you ever saw in your life.  This isn't going to happen for  several generations, of course.  If cars remain at their present  price levels it may never happen  at all. But just the same, it's  pretty damatic proof of the way  we're going.  In fact, life is becoming so  mechanized these days that it's  bound to have an affect on our  bodies. If a fellow is lucky  enough to have all the gadgets  that are available on the market  he could probably live a pretty  full life by just lifting a finger.  The day may not be as far off  as* we think. I say this having  attended a house party at. the  home of a well-heeled acquaintance. In this fellow's home nearly everything is automatic. The  whole house makes a faint, pulsating sound of high voltage.  A flick of a switch heats or  cools the joint, cooks the roast,  washes and dries the laundry  and the dishes, does something  about the garbage and makes ice  cream. The man of the house  wakens in the morning to the  sound of his radio. It goes on  automatically by itself. It really  does.  My friend is understandably  proud of his acquisitions and I  must confess I envy him. But in  the twentieth-century home  there is one gadget that was too  much. ,v,.     .:-..  .,,..X .-,>  .,.._-���  For what met my startled gk*e >  was something called an automatic electric blanket with/ so  help me, a "built-in brain." As  you sleep, my friend explained,  the blanket's brain adjusts the  warmth of the coverlet to the  temperature of the bedroom.  Anything to do with electricity  sends quivers coursing up and  down my spine. Confronted with  the necessity of changing a fuse  I show all the outward symptoms  of a man about to be strapped in  the electric chair. I am always  gloomily convinced that the  whole house will go "pouf" and  ascend rapidly in a flash of blue  light wh'en the current is put on.  When I was much younger I  read somewhere that hundreds  of people are electrocuted each  year by flicking the bathroom  switch while standing in their  bare wet feet, a fact that, early  in life, left me with a feeling of  sweet, mournful mystery about  the whole subject of.,electricity.  My friend hops into bed, fiddles with the controls (his particular blanket has dual controls  so that both he and his wife can  fly it together) and spends a  peaceful evening.  Not me. If I were to climb into  that thing I would feel consciously that here I was, under a  network of wires pulsating with  alternating current and just  waiting until I fell off to sleep  before its mechanical mind decided to fry me to a crisp.  Indeed, the booklet that comes  with   the  blanket is  enough  to  >.  scare me off permanently.  "Run the long cord from the  control to the foot of the bed,"  it says at one point, then in italics: "making sure thai it cannot  be pinched by any metal part  of the bed."  Monday. July Twenty-Filth, Nineteen Forty-Nine  i    , , ���  C&minillftity Spirit ... the   forerunner   of   prosperity  WHEN 36 out of 37 business people in an area  get behind their ball team with financial  support the way the Sechelt and Selma Park  merchants did it shows that there is the makings of a progressive community.  In very few other communities will you  find business people with enough foresight to  realize that where you have community-minded merchants you will have progress and prosperity.  It isn't the amount of money that was do  nated that is so great but it is the spirit behind  it that counts. Nearly one hundred percent of  the people with one objective in mind, and  that was to support a group of local sportsmen  who are doing their part to give the community  both entertainment and publicity.  It is now up to the individuals to follow the  lead set by the businesses and support the ball  team by attending the games and. putting something in the "hat" when it is passed.  ��� t  Publicity Bureau Needed ....byeveryone  THOSE of us in the tourist business, which includes everyone deriving their living from  other sources than logging and fishing, have  viewed with some concern the recent figures  released on tourist traffic into Canada and  B.C. particularly this last month. According to  the figures there has been an increase of from  fifteen to twenty five percent in visitors from  the United States. This should mean that the  waiting lists at the hotels and lodges are fifteen to twenty five percent longer than they  were last year. Unfortunately this is not the  case.  Hotel and Lodge managers smile wanly  when they are greeted with the customary  "Guess this is your busy season." Their smile  is wan because they shudder to think what  the quiet season is going to be like if this is the  busy season. There" are not as many people  coming to this peninsula this year as there were  during the wet summer last year. This should  not be when other places are enjoying a tremendous increase in business. The fault must lie  with pur publicity.  Our scenery, fishing, bathing, accommodation is the same as it was last year. Transportation to the area is  improved.  Services  have  T he  Open  Sechelt  Hon. Gordon. Wismer,  Attorney-General,  Victoria, B.C.  DEAR GORDIE:  Never let it be said that I have dragged  some poor, souls to the nether depths by advocating  beer   and/or  liquor  drinking.  I never did. Also, never let it be said that  I recommended the vile stuff for its medicinal  or food value. Not me.  But, many years ago, I did vote aye to the  government plebiscite asking whether or no  I approved of government controlled sale of  liquor. I was at that time very tired of seeing  people drink the most horrible brands of homebrew, made from anything from discarded potatoes to sawdust.  There used to be a species of it around  here called Drano, made, I believe, from decayed spuds.  Ask the old-timers; those who survive,  that is. Only the very strong could, and they  were never quite the same again.  But orie more "never." Never let it be  said that I voted for beer-parlors, as is, that is.  Who did dream them up? Before anyone^  rises in malty wrath, and oils up the shotgun,  read on awhile. Will you answer a few easy  questions? Why only beer? Why not stout and  wine, for instance? Why can't you get something to eat at the same time? Why does one  have to drink beer in those pseudo-neo-semi-  Gpthic excrescences which we find in all our  fair cities, with walls the color of something  the cat wouldn't even bother to drag in, or,  This is all pretty straightforward and, in fact, the blanket is  perfectly safe, but it opens up  hideous possibilities to a mind  like mine.  I know that I would lie awake  hour after hour waiting for the  cord to become pinched by some  metal part of the bed, thus causing 18,000 volts to engulf me in  a frightful shower of sparks and  crackling hisses while I light up  like a Roman candle.

While the Cariboo is overshadowing its  defects with much furor about its advantages  and Vancouver Island is lauding its merits and  the Okanagan is welcoming thousands to its  Peach Festivals, Frontier Days etc., the Sechelt  Peninsula sits back and wonders why there  are not more summer visitors.  The reason there are not more summer,  visitors is that very few people have ever  heard of the Peninsula, and those who have  heard have only heard what poor roads we  have; and that a group are protesting the construction of adequate school facilities and that  we had a bad forest fire.  We have more good things to boast about  than any other single area In the province but  we have not the initiative to get out and tell  people what we have.  It is time that a Peninsula Tourist Information Bureau was formed and given the financial backing of every person interested in  the growth and prosperity of the area.  Like any other business we will only get  out of the tourist business what we put into it  ���right now we are getting MORE out of it  than we are putting into it.  Other Opinions  Nothing To It  IT'S EASY to publish a newspaper. You never  get tired. You never need a vacation, Your  head it always clear. You're always bright as  a silver dollar.  Everybody writes in beautiful letters telling you what a nice paper you have. Everyone phone in news. You never have any trouble  in getting paper. Everybody pays you on time.  You never have to remind people over and  over again that their .subscription is due. If  you're late paying a bill, they say it's all right,  let it go.  You never make people mad at something  you have written or haven't written.  Your proofreader never makes a mistake.  The front page always looks nice. The ads are  always eye-catching. You just sit at your typewriter and write beautiful lines.  People never say your paper is political.  They never insist you're taking sides. They  always agree that you're independent.  Everywhere you hear people say you're a  good buy. They always say you work hard.  The wastebaskets never fill up, sp nobody has  to empty them. People never think of asking  you for favors that are entirely out of your  reach. After every issue advertisers call up  and say: "Say, that was a honey of an ad you  wrote for me. Thanks!"  You always have plenty of time to spend  with the family. When you mispell a person's  name, he calls up and says, "Forget it. It's all  right." "  Oh yes, it's wonderful to be a newspaper  publisher���wonderful, and so easy!���The American Press.  in some cases, so dirty and bedraggled looking  that (one just wonders, that's all. One wonders why.  Now, from no policy of appeasement, I  will say that the B-P's around our district are  as good as anywhere, but what I'm trying to  suggest is that we go in for some sensible  liquor laws, and, chum, model them on the  old country, where there is less abuse of liquor  and Jess drunkenness than anywhere else.  Let's get away from this stupid business that  goes on where at a dance people rush out  every little while and swill like pigs, because  the law won't let them have a rational system.  If you are wondering why the y6ung people think it is smart to drink, just watch the  oldesters at a dance.  And while you are at it, cut out the other  minor stupidities which the poor police are.  supposed to enforce in regard to liquor, and  instead, GET REALLY TOUGH WITH  DRUNKS.   ���  ���Letters To The Editor  ReaB Forest Wealth  EDITOR, The News���I read with  interest articles in your newspaper urging campers and tourists to be careful with fire while  in the woods.  I agree that probably the most  tragic part of the forest-fire picture across Canada as told in  newspaper headlines is that in  eight cases out of 10 they  shouldn't have been written at  all.  Most of the fires were caused  by carelessness, but don't let's  make the mistake of blaming it  all on the "tourist and greenhorn  camper.   .  People who live and work in  woodland areas���the very people  who should know better���are responsible for some of the worst  outbreaks.  Federal statistics show that  settlers started 11 percent of last  year's fires, for the most part  through land-clearing operations  (up to June 7 this year, Ontario  blames 23 percent of its forest  fires on settlers and four percent  on logging).  There is no tally on the num- ,|  ber   caused  by   the   carelessness ('{  oi other people who may  have fw  spend  half their  lives    in    the If  woods,     but   we'll   venture   the Jm  opinion   that  the  figure ' is   not m  anywhere near zero. j|i  It is far too high if they were'M  responsible for starting even one (Jf  or two fires, when you consider ill  the  intensive prevention  propa- M  ganda to which they are subject- Mf  ed    (lectures,  posters,   Canadian M  Forestry Association films).  " �����    m  The   activities   of  the   Ottawa^  Board of Trade, in getting con-|  servation and forestry taught in;1  elementary   schools,   should ,,be$  incentive for other public organi- f  zations across Canada. iL  Prompted    by    the    Forestry ,P  Committee of the B. of T., and)  worked out in co-operation with II  the Board of Education, the for- ?|  estry education program contin- %  ued through April and May inf  five ^Ottawa public schools,  andff  as a final reward, the  city stu-tff  dents   were  packed  off  by  bnsL  for  a  day in the  woods. tThere.ll  they smelled, felt, and saw the|  old   scars  of forest" mismanage.-/!  iment.

Fire Permits  Cause Headaches  THE   "CAMPFIRE  permit"  sys  tern in  British    Columbia    is..  causing  some unexpected  head-p  aches  for  forest protection    officials, it has been learned.  "Young people will apply fori]  a permit and then feel free top  go anywhere in the woods andffl  light fires or bonfires," states/*!  one official. .I'M  "In   the   main,   however,   thel  requirement has a beneficial ef-'J  feet, because it  gives our rang-/*i  ers a chance to discuss fire dan  ger    when   issuing   the    permit  and thereby disseminate valuable  prevention warnings." ; t��;  During the fire season, Sec-||  tion 99 of the Forest Act, pro-I$  vides that anyone who kindles^]  a fire for cooking or warmth I-  must have, a permit. The holder'^,  of the permit must put out the j.  fire before leading the vicinity, 4  or be liable to various penalties $  under the Act. %  A stitch in time saves embar-f}  rassing exposure. ���'  $ By E. NESTMAN  MRS. M. R. WRIGHT is occupying  Mr.   and  Mrs.   Bushfield's  cottage for the month of July.  Mr. and Mrs. Harry Gough left  last week for their new home at  Parksville,   Vancouver  Island.  Mrs. Ware and her daughter  Cherry are here from Winnipeg  visiting Mrs. Ware's sister, Mrs.  Nestman.  Mr. "Batt" Maclntyre, wh��  was visiting here yesterday, tells  us that the Port Mellon road will  go through this fall, probably as  far as Hillside. There is over  $23,000 set aside for the highway through our village. It appears they are held up waiting  for equipment to get this road  work started.  The weather has been really  something this last week���lots of  sunshine. For the men in the  woods it's a real break; and its  a pickup for everyone after the  deadly summer sunshine.  I,' myself, like the sunshine,  but the heat really knocks me  for a loop. I can't do a thing. I  have to wait for evening to get  my work done, but as soon as  the sun goes down I can really  go to town. I get. more work done  than in an hour than I would  have if I had tried all day.

Well, when my horse comes  in maybe I'll be able to take a  trip somewhere. Getting back to  Jack and Stevie, they are talking  of going to Mexico, which would  really be a grand opportunity for  them. It will give them plenty to  talk about for weeks after they  get home.  Ruth Norris is leaving August  1 to enter hospital work at Coquitlam: To prove how full the  school for nursing is at St. Paul's,  Claire Veitch is booked there  starting January, 1950. It is nice  work for the girls and I certainly hope that they make every  effort to stay with it, for they'll  never be sorry if they do. Lots  of luck, girls! And stay with it.  Mr. and Mrs. E. Sargent are  home from their holidays.  I noticed that Mr. Sowden, the  former Anglican Church minister, was in the village the other  day.  Mrs. Kidd has sold her home  and* will be leaving around the  end of July She is one of our  -real pioneers and will be missed  in the village. We wish her the  best in her new venture.  Jimmy Schutz went fishing  the other evening and landed a  nice 25 pounder. The result: we  were eating it at our place this  week, and it's really grand. As  a consolation prize, Tony, from  the bank, landed a very nice sole  while fishing with Jimmy.  Roma Schutz has gone to New  Westminster for a week.  The "Ladies of Gower" held a  tea and gale of home cooking  last week at the home of Mrs.  Chasters. It was reported a marvelous success, financially and  socially. They wish to thank  those who went to make up a  very nice turn-out that day. It  was a perfect day for the affair.  They are to be congratulated for  the fact that they took in over  $125.  As just a note in passing, Wally  Graham, our very efficient water  caretaker, tells me that we are  using water at the rate of about  1000 gallons a minute. Yes, we"  have a good supply, but with  sprinkling still in effect, and at  this rate of using it, we can't  afford to waste a drop.  Here's a tip to blackberry pickers who are going behind the  church to pick. Father tells me  that he was practising pot-shots  the other night at four little pussies with white stripes down  their backs.

It is a proud  . mother   who   writes   this   little  news story:  Margaret, my 10% year old  daughter, had the original idea  of holding a doll's fancy dress  competition and party. Very  wisely, she sought help and turned to her friend, Darlene Lay-  cock.  Now I, personally, knew nothing of this at all, until all preliminary plans had been worked  out. I was charmed by the whole  idea and anxious to see if the  girls would have the tenacity to  carry it through to completion.  They did!  Being half on the inside, as it  were, I know the amount of  thought and care the two girls  put into this. They really worked on it for two whole weeks. ��  Came the great day and���rain!  The original idea had been to hold  the party in Laycock's yard where  the trees were to have been decorated with streamers and, the  yard made to look very festive,  but, last Friday you may remem-.  ber, was a sunshine and showers  day and there were agitated conferences to decide whether to  postpone the party or to accept  Mrs. Laycock's kind offer to hold  it in her home.  This was agreed to be a wonderful solution and final preparations speeded up.  Margaret and Darlene had a  busy morning and made piles of  sandwiches, Mr. Laycock had  made a display stand (especially  for  the   occasion)   and    Darlene  Skinny men, women  gain 5,10,15 lbs.  tot New Pep, Vim, Vigor  What a UirllM Boor Umta fill oat: ugly hollow*  _Jt up: Mek no loncor M-Mmy; body Iom lu___  itHTti, ilekly -tSn-polo7' tool        look.

All complete, they  changed into their best dresses  and two excited, pretty little  girls were ready to receive their  guests.  Mrs. Margaret Newcomen, Mrs.  L. Scott and Miss G. Scott had  been invited to judge the dolls  and award the prizes, which  they readily agreed to do and,  upon their arrival, proceedings  opened with the singing of O  Canada, copies of this had been  previously handed around, each  having been written by Margaret  or Darlene!-  Darlene presented corsages to  the three judges who then set  to work on their difficult task,  There were some fifteen, beautifully dressed dolls and the judges  did not know to whom the. dolls  belonged. Here I must specially  mention two dolls, the baby,  "Bonnie" Prince Charles, reclining on a red velvet cushion and  dressed' just so beautifully, and  the Colonial Lady so very magnificent, so perfect, the judges  by-passed her as being a bought  one!  Tension having mounted to  fever pitch, the judges broke  their huddle and announced their  decision. They would, they said,  have liked to give a prize for  each doll, they all looked so lovely, but had finally decided that  the first prize should go to the  bride doll (belonging to Diane  Pearson), second prize to a fairy  doll (belonging to Joan Chambers) and the third prize to the  Hawaiian girl doll (this doll belongs to Darlene and had been  dressed and entered, just for  fun, by Mrs. Laycock.)  Margaret then handed the  prizes to Mrs. Newcomen to  award. First prize was a coal-  black-mammy doll; second prize,  pair of hanging flower holders;  third prize, cut-out book. These  gifts were all donated.  The real business being over  (or was it just to begin?) Margaret and Darlene served refreshments, a variety of sandwiches, jelly and ice cream,  cookies (that Darlene had made  herself) and fruit drinks. (Mrs.  Laycock thoughtfully provided  tea for the adults).  Somewhere along the way,  Margaret and Darlene made a  charming, little, joint spech,  thanking all present for their  co-operation   and   help   (here 7T  GABBIER   HARBOUR      THE COAST NEWS, Monday, July 2S, 1949  NOT MUCH news for me to get  at this week.

As a  result they had about $1.50 for  St. Hilda's Sunday 'school building fund, this was rapidly increased then and there to about  $2.15, which mounted to $2.65 on  Saturday when another interested mother sent a donation  this sum was made up to $3.00  and has been handed over.  The party was a great success,  with an attendance of around  twenty, everybody enjoyed it,  even the boys and two, very  proud mothers are sitting back,  waiting and wondering just  what those girls will be up to  next.

RENNIE  ���--P-P���������-P���������������"������  SOMETIMES I bonder if the  weeks pass as quickly for other  folks as they do for this correspondent. The time has flown  since last week. Have been very  busy and have not managed to  get  around for news items.  On Thursday last week the  residents of Granthams Landing  and Soames Point who are mem-  ��� bers and adherents of Gibson  Memorial United Church attended the Indian service of Rev.  Mr. Bevan. It was a very impressive service and made one  conscious of the responsibilities  of both minister and congregation to the church. Rev. Mr. Bunt  and Rev. Mr. Hardy from Vancouver Presbytery conducted the  induction of Mr. Bevan.  After the service the congregation adjourned to the hall  downstairs for a social period.  Refreshments were served by the  ladies of the W.A. , Professor  Henderson in his usual capable  manner welcomed Mr. and Mrs.  Bevan in the name of the congregation, and thanked the visiting ministers for their visit to  our church on this occasion. We  feel sure that the members will  do their best to make our new  minister and his wife feel at  home in our midst, and trust  that they soon will become accustomed to the great change  between a city charge and one  up   the   coast.  Mr. Fairey, one of our summer visitors, is quite in the limelight these days. It was he who  was responsible for averting a  serious fire the other day when  the roof of the "Old Granthams"  house caught fire. He was lucky  DeLuxe  FISHING  GUIDE  SERVICE  POWER BOAT  ROW BOAT RENTALS  |   WATER TAXI  FISHING TACKLE  RENTED  BAIT AVAILABLE  Next  to  Gibsons  Wharf  HARRY  SMITH,  MGR.  Phone GIBSONS 28  enough to bring in the largest  fish that has been caught here,  a 40-pound cod. We had the  pleasure of getting a bit of the  big fish. Fishing is very good at  Granthams, some very nice salmon being brought in these  days.  Mr. and Mrs. Oldfield and  small daughter are at present  visiting with Mrs. Douglas and  will be in Granthams Landing  until the end of the month.  Mr. and Mrs. McNalley from  Ontario are visitors at present  at the Guest House. They have  been visiting Vancouver and several other points on the coast  and   district.  Mr. and Mrs. Samworth and  family from Vancouver are also  staying at the Guest House; also  Mrs. Tait and Mr. and Mrs. Jen-  ner.  Miss J. Foulkes is visiting  with Miss Elsie Potter at her  summer home at Soames Point.  On Tuesday, July 19, Mrs. W.  Ellis was hostess to the ladies of  the W.A. group of which she is  convener, in connection with  Trinity United Church, Vancouver. Ten of the members braved  the storm and heavy rain, but  after they arrived at the house  and got warmed by the fire and  had tea, they were ready to enjoy the day. Fortunately the sun  came out and everyone had a  grand visit.  Sorry to report that little Susan Atkinson lost her pet dog  last week. It was a valuable  wirehaired terrier. It was hit by  a car coming down Granthams  hill. The cars go through here  at such a rate of speed it is a  wonder that there are no serious  accidents. There are so many  children playing on the road  which I am sure must make driving rather a nervewracking business. But there seems to be a  special Providence here with  special care;  This morning when the Machigonne backed out from the wharf  on her way to Gibsons she backed onto a sandbar as the tide  was very low at the time. Fortunately she was not stuck very  fast, for after some pushing and  with the fact that the tide was  rising, she soon was on her way  to Gibsons. Some years ago I remember that the Lady Pam went  ashore in a fog on the same sandbar. It took her quite a while to  get  afloat  again.  A VERY, pretty wedding was  solemnized on Sunday, July 17  at 2 p.m., at St. Mary's Chapel,  Garden Bay, the principals being Eileen Wray, only daughter  of Mr. and Mrs. W. Wray of Pender Harbour, and Gordon Cochrane, son of Mr. and Mrs. D. W.  Cochrane of Texada Island. Rev.  Allan Greene officiated, and Dr.  V. M. Rogers supplied the wedding music. During the signing  of the register "Always" was  played.  The bride was attired in a  grey gabardine suit with grey  and white accessories and wore  a gardenia corsage. As bridesmaid, Miss Leona Lee was dressed in a brown suit with brown  and white accessories. Her corsage was carnations and gardenias. Mr. Jimmy Wray, brother  of the bride was best man.  A reception followed at Garden Bay Lodge which was beautifully decorated with white and  pink streamers and a profusion  of summer flowers. Assisting the  bridal party    in    receiving    the  guests were the mothers of the  oride and groom.  The former was in a powder  blue ensemble with pink corsage,  while Mrs. Cochran wore a grey  dress with yellow corsage. Dr.  V. Rogers proposed the toast to  the bride, and suitable words  were also added by Rev. Greene.  A three-tier wedding cake graced  the bride's table decorated with  pale pink .roses, and four cut-  glass, dishes filled with rose buds.  Mrs. Charlie Wray and Mrs.  C. Manning presided at the tea  table.  Among the many guests was  the bride's grandmother, at 90  years  of  age,  a  real grand  old  lady.  The happy couple departed by  bus for Vancouver, via Gibsons,  after a brief honeymoon Mr. and  Mrs. Cochrane will reside at Texada Island.  The best wishes of all the  Harbour go with them.  NOTICE  A MEETING will be held  of members and those  interested in reviving the  Elphinstone Bay Farmers'  Institute. If there is not  sufficient interest to warrant this as a useful functioning organization, the  meeting will decide on disposal of the assets of the  Institute.  Meeting will be held at  Mrs. Matthews Hall, opposite Alex's Garage, on  Monday, August 1, at 8  p.m.  Dated this 16th day of  July,  1949.
