 Sinclair Answers  Robi. Macnichol  IN AN INTERVIEW with The  Coast News after his meeting  at Sechelt Tuesday night, Jimmy  Sinclair answered a letter in  last week's Coast News written  by Robert Macnichol.  Mr. Sinclair said "Two things  obviously have escaped Mr.  Macnichol���the War Veterans allowance was increased $10.00 to  $40.00 per month and all limits  were removed from casual earnings. This year a further* increase  of $10.00 a month was given to  those veterans in * need."

The first contentious point is the bland  statement of this irresponsible editorial that  the wharf has been "condemned for public  use since last September."  This is not so, there has never been any  notification from the inspectors who have  checked the condition of the wharf, nor from  any other responsible body that the wharf  was unsafe.  The second point residents of the area  found so offensive was the malicious manner  in which the editorial chided the Department  of Public Works for not instituting wharf  repairs when the work had been underway for  two days before the editorial appeared.  The Coast News hastens to assure its  readers that before judgment on. any department, organization or person, is made editorially  in its  columns,  the facts of the case  are always obtained first.  In the matter of the^ wharf repairs, the  Coast News had already learned through a  phone call to the Federal Department of  Public Works that weather conditions which  prevented the moving of the piledriver was  the only cause of delay and that the job would  be going ahead just as soon as weather conditions allowed.  We feel that the Department has acceded  to the wishes of the majority of the people  affected in the area by delaying the construction of the new wharf until September.  By instituting repairs within one month  of the time that the request was made, they  have proved that they are anxious to cooperate with local interests in every way.  The Coast News blushes over this immature editorial and sincerely hopes that it  will not be construed as being representative  of the type of journalistic work that is carried  out in this part of the province.  We cannot help but feel that unjustified  sniping of this nature at the government departments tend to retard progress rather-than  help it.  Try ing to Retard Progress .. ..A waste of time!  GIBSONS NEWS  By E. NESTMAN  THIS 'N THAT  OUR MR. Anderson took a nasty  spill, while negotiating a curve  on his son's bike. Seems the boy  greased the brakes a little too  religiously, and soo . . . poor Jim  took a very bad flyer. He was  noticed going down the street  with his head on one side, and  when he looked around at anyone, he turned the whole way  round. It's not funny though is  it Jim. Boys will be boys.  A letter in the opposition  paper intrigues me, I am taking  the liberty of thinking it was  directed to something I wrote  some time ago, re children on  buses. I would like to tell the  writer of that letter, that I certainly never intended to slur  anyone, and certainly never intended to hurt anyone's feelings.  I appreciate the inconveniences  of the children who ride in buses,  having a family of my own, who  have never had to ride the buses,  always fortunate enough to be  able to walk to school, my diatribe at that time was directed to  some very inconsiderate chil-  * dren who were making it pretty  grim for the bus man, so much  so, that he had to get off the bus,  and make this boy walk home,  give the busman his due, he complains very rarely, it is not my  business, but it was brought to  my attention, and I thought it  only fair that the situation  should be aired, no harm in that.  I am taking no sides. No doubt  if my children were riding daily  in these buses, they'd be just as  hard to handle. I never kid myself there.  But I do think that even out  of courtesy the driver should be  the  boss  in his  own bus,    and  seems only cure is for those hard  to  handle little angels, shut  up  or get out and walk.    I    don't  known who the children were,  , or  anything about  them,  but I  will say I still think that the bus  drivers certainly deserve "Orch-  / ids."  1 There's a chimney cleaner in  our midst now, something that  we all really need around here,  for chimneys should be cleaned  at least once a year, and with oil  they need it more often. So if  you want your chimney cleaned,  give me a call and I'll see the  man gets the order.  Mr. and Mrs. Clay returned  from a week's holiday and fishing at Saginaw Lake, and reported a very successful fishing  week. Mrs. Clay left again this  week for the Eastern Star Convention in Vancouver. Mr. and  Mrs. J. Drummond are also attending the convention.  Mr. and Mrs. V. Z. Manning  were tendered a dinner at the  Sechelt Inn, by the teachers of  the area, on his retirement in  September. Mrs. Manning was  presented with a bouquet, and  they were both presented with a  radio. Mr. Manning has been inspector of schools in this area  for a number of years, and with  his knowledge of rural schools,  it is too bad that he will not be  able to be on the job when the  new schools are a reality, but at  this late date, we know that he  is entitled to a real holiday, and  we would like to wish him all  the very best.  Mrs. Husby has returned from  Seattle, and intends to stay  home for a while.  Due to unforeseen circumstances the social to be held at  the home of Mrs. Nestman June  29 will be postponed, later date  will be announced. This social to  be in aid of WA to Legion's  bazaar, but some previous commitments causes this postponement.

ACCORDING  to  a  report  in    a    Vancouver  newspaper June 21 H. W. Aggett is heading a petition to the Minister of Education  protesting the method of polling carried out  for the school by-law last month.  These petitioners are wasting their time  and money because the Department is?  satisfied that the poll was conducted according  to the regulations laid down in the law under  which the School Board operates.  They are also wasting their time in  attempting to thwart the wishes of the people  for new schools because if by some queer  chance they were successful in having another  poll made on this issue the supporters for the  new schools would make their wishes far more  emphatic with a larger vote than they did  under the May 28 poll.  It is rather  interesting  to  note  that' the  Record of Sinclair .  IN   THE   1940   federal   election,   31-year-old  James  Sinclair defeated the  sitting  CCF  member in this riding.  His election was regarded as  the major  upset of the  campaign, but was  no surprise  to the electors of the district who knew his  record.  Sinclair is a product of Vancouver schools.  He earned his way through UBC by winning  scholarships and working in the mines, graduating at 19 at the head of his class in engineering.  Because of his brilliant all-round scholastic and athletic record he was chosen Rhodes  scholar, and proceeded to Oxford University  for three years' study of British political institutions.  This was followed by post-graduate work  at Princeton University in the United States,  so giving him a broad background of Canadian, British and American training.

Sinclair enlisted in the RCAF in September, 1939, serving with a fighter squadron in  the Desert Air Force in Libya, Malta and  Sicily and was discharged, with the rank of  squadron  leader  in August,  1945.  In Parliament he has lived up to the highest expectations of the people who elected  him. He has been an able, industrious and  independent member. He has been a stalwart  supporter of social and ��� labor legislation, and  has particularly distinguished himself as a*  champion of the veterans and their dependents.  That his electors approved of his conduct  was shown in the 1945 election, when he was  returned with the largest majority in the  history of the riding, three of his opponents  losing their deposits. ' .  Last year his lone and apparently hopeless fight for margarine became a parliamentary triumph which has endeared him to the  housewives of Canada.  For a while it appeared that his rugged  independence and willingness to speak his  own mind was a block to promotion.  When Rt. Hon. Louis St. Laurent became  prime minister, however, he immediately ap-,  pointed Sinclair to the top post outside! the  cabinet, parliamentary assistant to the Minister of Finance, a position which has always  led to cabinet rank.  If one is to compare the record of Jimmy  Sinclair, his training, his proven courage and  ability and his parliamentary experience with  that of each of his opponents in next Monday's  election, there is little doubt that this straightforward young Scot will continue to represent this riding at Ottawa, to its lasting benefit, and to the credit of British Columbia as  a whole.  by Jack Seoti  LOST TREASURE  I HAVE been reading an . account of the latest hunt for  pirate treasure on Cocos Island  and it took my mind back to* a  day in 1942 on the crowded  deck of the troopship Mauretania,  steaming slowly out of Halifax  harbor with me and several  other unhappy souls aboard.  I had become buddies with a  fellow-sergeant named Larsen,  who came from the town of  Truro, Nova Scotia. Larsen was  a pink-cheeked giant who had  been a miner in civilian life and  so went by the nickname "Hard  Rock." I never knew, his first  name.  We stood at the rail of the  ship, getting our last look at  Canada. "Hard Rock" Larsen  was looking north. "There's a  small island a few miles north  of here," he said. "Two million  pounds in gold are buried on it.  If I get back here in one piece  I'm going to have a crack at it."  By the time ihe Mauretania  crept through ihe fog of Liverpool harbor six days later I had/  made a solemn pact with "Hard  Rock."* I would join him on ihe  expedition. I was conviced thai  ihe treasure lay there. I still am.  The story of Oak Island, lying  about 50 miles north of Halifax,  is a familiar one in the Maritimes  and has been since the beginning  of the last century. At least ten  parties are known to have had  a try at it. "Hard Rock" Larsen  had talked with some of the adventurers.  He had a plan.  The legend began nearly 150  years ago. A party of hunters,  visiting that lonely uninhabited  isle, made a strange discovery in  a clearing back from the beach.  The branch of. an old oak had  been sawed off. Beneath it was  found, the decaying remains of  a block and tackle. When they  started to dig they found they  were clearing out a pit. At 30  feet, lacking the necessary equipment, they were forced to abandon the work.  A   later   expedition   continued  on down io 90 feet. Ai thai point'  ihe pit flooded. What's more, ii  flooded with salt water thai rose:  and fell with ihe Atlantic tide!  Bailing the pit put was hopeless, j  Again   ihe   fortune-seekers   saw!  their work frustrated. <  Later another expedition bored  into   the     pit     experimentally, j  Their   augur    encountered    oak:  planking, passed through a layer of loose metal and brought up  a number of small gold pieces.  But still there was  no way  of j  overcoming the mysterious seep-]  age of the sea.  The idea then grew that this'  water was, in fact, a man-made  trap. Many years later another  party, incorporated as a company and with $100,000 working  capital actually located the entrance of a horizontal tunnel, but  never mastered the secret that  would unlock the treasure.  Not all this was hearsay,  "Hard Rock" Larsen assured me.  Some of it, yes. The story that a  stone has been found bearing  the inscription, "Two million  pounds buried here," could never  be proved.  Bui he had talked with men  who had stood in that clearing on  Oak Island and who knew thai  gold had come out of there and  that a pit wasn't dug there just  io bury old bean tins. And "Hard  Rock" had ihe fevers -  The "vfor carried "Hard Rock" '  and I into different paths. I never  heard from him again.  As it turned out, of course, I  came back to the same old thing  (with no complaints whatever)  and the memory of that treasure  fever cooled down. * Perhaps  "Hard Rock" Larsen was cooled  down, too.  Or maybe this very night we  are sitting at opposite ends of  the country brooding about the  great shifting pile of gold coin  that lies awash in the tidal  waters of the Oak Island pit.  \  7 The   expression   "Uncle   Sam" 1  probably   originated   during  the t  War of  1812,  when all govern- }  ment    property    was    stamped,  "U.S." Surprise Party for  THE COAST NEWS.

ROBERTS CREEK  UNDER THE  DOGWOOD  Ambitious Youngsters  Finu Opportunity  In Banking Career  A PROGRESSIVE career as an  officer of Canada's first bank  lies within your reach, if you're  a go-ahead young fellow with  junior matriculation or its equivalent. Girls, too,' find increasing  opportunity in the Bank of  Montreal.  Because of the tempo of business today, promotion is steadily becoming more rapid. Senior  . B of M positions are filled .by  staff promotion. Tuition fees,  with a special bonus are returned to juniors who pass banking  courses.  Earning while learning, the  young banker is trained in a  variety of duties of increasing  importance. His training also  gives him the opportunity of  serving in various parts of the  country.'  Some of the benefits of service  in the B of M are a pension,  group insurance, and special allowances and bonuses, and the  B of M officer need not fear unemployment  in  bad times.  Like other professions, banking is not a quick means to, a  high income. But the banker's  lifelong professionar standing  and security compare weir to the  ups and. downs of most men who  want a high salary in a hurry,  and besides bank salaries have  risen substantially in recent  years.  If a Bank of Montreal career  interests you, see Mr. John  Theed, manager of the B of M  branch at Gibsons or Sechelt  tomorrow. He'll gladly tell you  more. (Advt.)

A full report of  which will be found elsewhere  in these columns.  One little annual event which  took place a few days ago was  the musical evening held at  "Grenacres", to mark the closing of the season for the Roberts Creek String Orchestra.

The evening closed with a  well served al-fresco supper���  and a free for all in the musical  line (it nearly got "hot") by  general consent it was a "good  do" and departures were reluctant.

This is a long awaited and  well deserved break from teaching music to the children of this  area and all her pupils and  friends will wish her a jolly  good vacation.  SPOTLIGHT  ON  STRAWBERRIES  Discussion of strawberries for  July menus seems to be quite  superfluous to most people. Who  wants anything better than ripe,  red strawberries and cream or  old-time  strawberry  shortcake?  Certainly the dessert problem  is solved for a while as home-  makers serve fresh berries at  every opportunity so long as the  season lasts.  They have, however, the task  of extending the berry season  into the winter months by preserving them in various ways.  Because of the juiciness and soft  texture of strawberries they collapse and lose color unless good  methods are used, also because  most people prefer rather sweet  fruit the berries often rise to the  top of the sealer, making the  finished product rather unatrac-  tive.  The secret of a method that is  really satisfactory is in letting  the berries stand in the hot syrup until they pump up. This also helps to set the color.  There   are   two   methods,   Hot  Pack and Cold Pack.  COLD PACK���  Wash, hull. Bring to boil  slowly in syrup. -Cover, remove  from heat and let stand from 1  to 3 hours. Pack in sealers, leaving 1-2 inch headspace. Partially seal and process small (pint)  sealers, 15 minutes in boiling water or 20 minutes in the oven, at  275F . Process medium (quart)  sealers 15 minutes-in boiling water bath or in oven at 27 5F for  25. minutes.  HOT PACK  ��� Wash, hull. Bring syrup to a  boil and add strawberries. Cover,  remove from heat and let stand  1 to 3 hours. Bring to boil and  pack hot, leaving 1-2 inch head-  space. Partially seal sealers or  completely seal tin cans. Process small (pint) or medium (qt)  sealers, 10 minutes in boiling water bath or 20 minutes in the  oven at 275F.*  Tin cans must never be processed in the oven but both 20-  qunce and 28 ounce cans should  be  processed  for 10  minutes  in  Ftf_ern or Toadstools  By JOSEPH LISTER RUTLEDGE  SOMEONE has said that if you  want to produce a man it takes  a generation, but a toadstool can  be grown in a night. That is a  very simple truth indeed. Too  simple, perhaps, so the tendency  of our days is to disregard it. We  are impatient with slow processes of development and look around the corner for some easy  formula that promises to settle  our economic and social problems. No one with the slightest  knowledge of history can doubt  the steady and accelerating process of human betterment. Yet  we will hazard all this, the solid  progress, the solid qualities it  assures, in our uneasy haste to  accomplish  miracles   at  no  per-  the boiling water bath.  Every*- home-maker hopes to  make strawberry jam of good  color and with whole berries  held together by a luscious jelly.  Here is a good recipe:  STRAWBERRY JAM  6 Cups strawberries  2 1-2 cups sugar.  Wash and hull berries. Leave  whole. Add sugar and let stand  2 hours. Drain. Bring juice to a  boil and boil 10 minutes. Add  berries and cook, uncovered, 15  minutes. Pour into hot, sterilized  jars, cool slightly, then pour on  a layer of melted paraffin wax  and leave until hardened. Add a  second layer of melted wax, rotating the jar so that the wax  will adhere to the side of the  glass to form- a close seal.  Yield: 4 1-4 cups.  sonal cost. We overlook the fact  that this is the way you produce  toadstools.  The other day, dipping into a  book by Louis Bromfield who, by  the way, is a very good writer  and a better than average farmer, we found support for these  reflections. In his book "Malabar  Farm" we read: "In all life on  earth, as in all good agriculture,  there are no short-cuts that bypass Nature and the nature of  man himself . . . Every attempt  at a formula, a short-cut, a panacea, always ends in negation  and destruction. .X In that lies  the whole answer to the eternal  and inevitable failure of a pure  Marxian doctrine.  It seems that here is suggested  the wholeness of man's life, that  as the best of fertilizers cannot  assure abundant crops without  the assistance of rain or water  so man cannot be saved by  piecemeal remedies in which he  has only a passive part. Subsidized machines, guaranteed  wages and universal schemes of  security are not enough, for man  does not live by these things  alone. He lives in the solitude of  his own identity under the law  that in the sweat of his face  shall he eat his bread. To devise  other means, to shorten the process so that there is no sweat, to  legislate him into everlasting  security is to remove the incentive that made man part and  master of his progress. Perhaps  the goal is more quickly achieved, but is it as worth while? A  toadstool may grow overnight,  but it takes a generation to make  a man.

The Sturkens have an  Owens cruiser, the San Rafael,  and the Payntars have a new, 31-  foot Hydra-cruiser, a steel ship,  uniquely named Mr. and Mrs..  This  is her maiden voyage.  The San Rafael was shipped  from California to Seattle via  Pope & Talbot freighters, and  the Sturken's motored up to that  city. They cruised the Olympic  Peninsula waters and the Hood  Canal while waiting for Capt.  and Mrs. Payntar.  The goal is Skagway by July  first .Last year Capt. and Mrs.  Sturken purchased their boat in  New Orleans, then sailed around  the Bijous, left for the west coast  of Florida and Key West, then  on to Havana, for three weeks.  On this part of the trip there  was a hundred-mile, stretch of  open water that was rather grim,  but they kept on going despite  the temptation to turn back.  From Havana they cruised to  Key West, then up the east coast,  through the inland passage to  New York, then up the Hudson  River right through the ^canals  to St. John and Montreal, and  back again to New York.  The Sturkens picked up a  mascot in Florida, a 2 1-2 foot  alligator they named Jo-Jo (short  for Josephine and Joseph) as it  was  not  determined  whether  it  was a he or a she. They find it  a very interesting pet, and flew  back, to California from New  York, smuggling their strange  pet aboard the plane (contrary to  airline rules.) The boat was sent  back to California.

Higdon of Vancouver are here  on a visit, staying with Mrs. N.  White. It is a long time since we  have seen Mrs. Hay,-who is Mrs.  White's sister. She has been coming here for many years, except  the last two, when Mrs. White  gave up the Selma cottage. They  find the place much changed, but  still like it as they have many  friends here and also enjoy the  quiet.  Also noticed Mr. Roy Doyle  and his charming bride Peggy  here at the Sunday School picnic. Wasn't near enough to say  hello, so will say it now.  Visiting Mr. and Mrs. J. H.Scott of Porpoise Bay are Mr.  and Mrs. Sporks of Vancouver,  enjoying the change and also the  scenery. Hope they will visit us  again.  Sechelt certainly did well by  the Selma Park community  Strawberry Festival. A bus load  went from here and we had a  most enjoyable time. The gardens were lovely, the day was  grand and the affair was yery  well, organized. We met very  many old friends, but as there  is a local correspondent at Selma  we will not go into details.  Great pleasure was expressed  by Rev. Thompson, deacon of the  diocese, in the children's choir  recently formed here in St.* Hilda's Anglican Church, and we  listened to a wonderful address  by him. We are indebted to Mr.  and Mrs. Williams and Mrs. Dorothy Morrison in bringing the  children to the fore.  We are told  that anyone is welcome to tbe  choir practice, which is held on  Tuesdays at the home of Mrs.  Brooker. Do not confuse this  with the adult choir mentioned  by Mr. Roberts. You will hear  more about this later.  Lucky winners at the. Parish  Hall tea were Mrs. Oswald, wife  of the vicar, and Mrs. Mowatt.  Mrs. Oswald guessed the nearest  number of patches on the quilt  and  Mrs.  Mowatt  the  fewest!  Convening the affair was Mrs.  E. E. Redman, and asked to pour  during the tea were Mrs. Arnold,  Mrs. McColl, Mrs. D. Morrison  and Mrs. Mowatt. On the country  store was Mrs.  Pbstlewaite.  We sympathize with Ditty iand  Merrily Jay in having the measles, but one thing, they don't l^st  long and it will be nice to. tell  the other children about/. We'ye  had them, too.

Knowing Sechelt as he does���his grandparents made the settlement here  and it was carried on by his father,, the late Mr. Bert Whitaker,  a man respected and loved by all.  Ken will undoubtedly have the  interests of us all at heart.  Mr. Jack Mayne also is a fine  secretary, as witnsess his mapy  years with the Canadian Legion.  The remaining officers are all  men of vision and the one lady  in the group, Mrs. W. K. Berry,  will give it the balance it needs.  We had recently remarked to  Mr. Al Jackson the need for a  more diversified personnel and  we feel sure with Mr. Jackson  on the Board the residents of the  community who have not been  attending these meetings will  now take an interest in them.  * Mr. and Mrs."B.

More homes have been built in  Canada, in relation to population, than  in any. nation. Already a million Canadians live in homes built since the war.  The liberal government is ready to help  solve the low-rental housing problem and  has offered its cooperation to provinces  and municipalities.  Then, there is the Liberal health program. Already  federal grants are helping the provinces to  increase their health services. But the  Liberals' aim is a nation-wide contributory  health insurance plan which will end, for  everyone, the tragedy of inadequate health  care and the financial strain of lengthy illness.  Or take employment. Liberal measures are helping to maintain employment in Canada at  record levels, and at the same time unemployment insurance reserves have been  building up. The government has encouraged  enterprise and high production. Plants have  expanded, new industries started up. New  opportunities are being created every day.  Old Age Pensions and pensions for the blind  have been steadily increased by the Liberal  government. But it isn't stopping there. Its  aim is a nation-wide plan of contributory  pensions which will help everyone to enjoy  a comfortable and secure old age ��� automatically and as a right.  These are all part of the  Liberal program of social  betterment.... a program to  achieve a "national standard  of social security and human  welfare which assures the  greatest possible measure  of social justice to all  Canadians".

We then  moved down to our own place  close to the gravel pit where I  graduated from the "pins" stage  to "dirty-(faced-Ikey" for they  tell me my face was always  stained with berry juice, therefore it always looked dirty.

It would be pretty hard for us  to forget those days when Capt;  Jack, as we all called him, used  to let us ride from Port Mellon  around to Seaside where we hopped off and walked back through  a trail in the woods to our camp,  which, at that time, was adjoining  the Indian  Reserve.

As parliamentary assistant to the Minister of Finance, he will be responsible for  a position of importance and it will be  economically possible for Mr. Sinclair to  continue in the service of the people of  this riding.  The Times, which has been to the fore-.  front in the move to retain the services of  this fighting member, is particularly happy that Mr. Sinclair will not be retiring  at the end of the current session as he  had decided some months ago.  Whether it is a result of the loudly-  expressed public opinion of his riding  or whether it is the result of the new  set-up in the Liberal party, we do not  know, but the important thing is that Mr.  Sinclair will return to Ottawa in an advanced post, one which will enable the  people of this riding to retain the services of this outstanding, figure in Canadian public life.  The Times has no political affiliations.  Its championing of Mri, Sinclair's cause  does not come from any idea of political  favour. Rather, as a newspaper with the  best.interests of its district at heart, it is  pleased that the services of Mr. Sinclair  are assured for some years at least.  Party, in these days, is not important.  What is important is representation bf  this district at Ottawa by a wholehearted  champion of the causes of democracy and  of the West.  In Mr. Sinclair we have both. His record and his stand on matters of controversial opinion, speak louderk than can  words.  The Times' readers will join with this  newspaper in wishing Jimmy Sinclair,  M.P., the best of success in his new position of responsibility, and in voicing appreciation of the fact that Vancouver  North will continue to be represented by  a sincere member who considers an ideal  is worth fighting for and is of more importance than mere political expediency.  What an impartial cross-section of the press has to  say about the record oi James Sinclair.  *   Jan. 20, 1949  VANCOUVER PROVINCE  JIMMY SINCLAIR OUT  OF DOG-HOUSE  Mr. James Sinclair's thousands of  friends will be glad to learn that the  popular member for Vancouver North in  the House of Commons is out of the political dog-house and back on the ladder of  success again. His appointment as parliamentary assistant to the minister of finance gives him an opportunity which he  will, no doubt, improve.  Mr. Sinclair made a promising start  �� when he was first elected to the House of  Commons in 1940, but the war took him  away from Canada to service in Libya,  and on his return he found himself at  outs with his party on the question of  compulsory military service. It was entirely to Mr. Sinclair's credit that he  stood his ground on the issue and made  his position plain, even in the face of  his leader's displeasure. But his stand  put him definitely in the party's black  books and the future seemed to hold so  little for him in the way of political advancement that he went so far as to announce his intention of retiring from  public life.  Now with a change in the Liberal  leadership, and new plans for the party,  Mr. Sinclair is restored to favour and, as  Mr. Abbott's assistant will have an opportunity to show what he can do. Both Mr.  Sinclair and the Liberal party will benefit from the change of attitude towards  him. The member for Vancouver North  has undoubted qualifications for public  service and no party can afford to cast  aside young men of his stamp who are  willing to serve.

The appointment will probably induce  Mr. Sinclair to reconsider his decision to  withdraw from politics at the end of the  current session. He had felt that he had  come to a 'dead end' in politics and he  could not afford to sacrifice his family  and his future any longer to carry the  responsibilities of an MP.  The Ottawa politicians had been passing Sinclair up. There were said to be  some who felt he was too independent,  outspoken and non-conformist to be accepted into the inner circle of the party.  This by-passing may have had some influence in his decision to drop out of  politics.  Now Liberal leaders have been wise in  reconsidering their position. 'Jimmy' Sinclair, a former Rhodes Scholar, is a smart  politician, brilliant speaker and debater.  He is a power in the politics of his party  in this province, being recognized as the  'king-maker' at the Liberal convention  which chose Byron Johnson for the provincial leadership. Sinclair is the type of  aggressive, intelligent young representative the Liberals must encourage if they  are to meet their only real challenge���  the challenge of the CCF.  Liberals can not afford to give the impression, in B.C. or anywhere else, that  there is no room in the party for progressive, independent young men. To do so  would be to admit that the party was on  the way out. It would be the kiss of  death.  Therefore the decision of Messrs. St.  Laurent and Abbott and their colleagues  is doubly encouraging. It shows that they  are alive to the situation and that they  are willing to encourage their bright  young men���even to the extent of correcting some past mistakes. Mr. Sinclair  will prove to be a growing asset to the  Liberal party.

Mr. Elliott's report on prizes  r perfect attendance  and first  grades,   disclosed  a  very in-  resting   fact,   that   perfect   at-  ndance   came   near   setting   a  cord this year, marred only by  e chickenpox epidemic; In Mr.  lliott's  room  alone  there were  perfect attendances.

Announcement" was made that  Miss M. Wagner will be leaving  this year taking a position at  Cranberry Lake. The group expressed their regrets, for Miss  Wagner has been with the school  for quite some time, and is a  very capable teacher, who will  be missed. Mrs. G. Hill and Mrs.  J.

RADIO-PHONE  Have you heard that there is  a radio-phone for the Associated  Air Taxi at Garden Bay? It  should give residents of this  area a feeling of confidence,  knowing that in any case of  emergency, day or night, a plane  is available at short notice and  reasonable rates.  Lloyd Davis is agent and licensed operator. Last Saturday  Jihere were three,calls.^for., plane  service  by  local residents.

I learned Saturday night Doris  and Tub Skellet are with Freeman Logging on the north end of  the Island.  Mr. and Mrs. Allen Bournes  are home again from Topley.  Mrs. Jannoch, their daughter,  paid the expenses of the trip.  Mrs.   Elsie  Kingston   of    New -  Brighton is also home.  Mrs. Moxon had a bad fall  last week. She was going down ���  the steps to welcome an old  friend, Mrs. Owen, when she  tripped and fell. Mrs. Moxon  broke her arm and had to have  several stitches in her head.  Mr. and Mrs. Atkins guests  left for Vancouver on Sunday.  Mrs. E. A. (Florence) Bourne,  had another busy session on Saturday, June 18. Will give more  details next week as I hav�� been  promised some pictures and if  they are good will send them  along.  We had a pretty good turnout  for the Provincial election. 75  per cent of the registered voters  showing up. 78 ballots were cast,  out of 113 voters. As well as  eight absentee voters showing up.  Work on the road was held up  on Saturday for a little while.  Coming back from the job on  Friday evening, Mr. Ritchey  broke a leaf in the big spring.  However all is well again. Poor  Al did not have much time home  this week-end. He was back  working on the cat at 10.30 a.m.  Sunday, and was all ready to go  by eight o'clock Sunday. We sure  gave him a nice feed tonight.  Home grown peas, Swiss Chard,  and potatoes. This is the second  lot of potatoes I've dug. The  garden must have gone bughouse.  Have Broad beans standing thre^  foot. six. and bearing pods seven  or eight inches long. The sweet  peas are beginning to bloom, and  some wallflower plants not supposed to bloom this year are already showing signs of blooming.  Mr. F. W.

Sat., June 25, 1949  MOTES  Sechelt���There is some doubt,  I am told, that these nature notes  are the Brownie's own work.  Whilst I do correct the spelling  and sometimes omit irrelevant  detail, I state emphatically that  the observation, expression and  sometimes the very words, are  the Brownie's  own.  Tawny Owl  (Bp Williams)  When I look out my bedroom  window, I seem to see a lovely  green, lace curtain, but it really  is one great big cedar tree. The  branches wave to look like old  lace. Every morning I see a  beautiful robin sitting in its same  old place on my fence; it is right  near my little nasturtium garden  that I planted around the foot of  a big tree right in my yard. We  nave a garden around each tree  in our yard, which is very pretty  indeed. I saw a woodpecker and  it reminded me of the Woody-  Woodpecker song.  The little bird  poked at two of my trees in our  yard. It has a red breast and  has got a blackey-blue color. It  is  very beautiful.  Valerie "Gnome"  I saw some lovely flowers, they  were Tiger Lilies; the flower itself is very orange; they are covered with brown spots all over,  and the petals turn back to the  stem with long stalks in the center. These stalks have powdery  balls and when you smell' them  the powder comes off on your  nose and turns it orange.  One day I saw a group of butterflies���they were flying as if  they were all king's servants.  The butterflies were red and  white, and there was a larger  black and yellow buterfly at the  back and he looked as if he were  king of all butterflies. They had  quite a big butterfly at the front  but it was not bigger than the  black and yellow one. They all  looked as if they were having a  lovely time.

With, the aid of balloons, we  jumped right into Starland and  received our first year's service  stars. Unfortunately, several of  the Brownies who were enrolled  last year were away ill, but we  had one very special Brownie,  Diana, who moved here recently  and who needed four balloons to  jump into Starland, for she wanted her THiRD year's service  badge. Diana has her Golden  Hand and can now fly into the  Guides at any time.  Back to earth, we started to  piay some special games and if  yeLls, shrieks, shouts and laughter are any criterion, we had a  grand time. Pairing off, we made  hats, weird and wonderful���and  some were pretty, too���with a  sheet of newspaper, a little colored crepe paper and three pins  each. Then, wearing our hats  (and having to hold them on as  there was such a strong wind)  Brown Owl led a dancing,  laughing parade around the mothers present.  After this we sobered down,  recovered our Brownie hats and  formed our fairy ring around  Brown Owl, Miss Elsie Turner.  Then Margaret and Eleanor entered* the fairy ring carrying a  big parcel. They smartly saluted  Brown Owl and said "We are  very happy to present you with  this small gift from the 1st  Sechelt Brownies. With it, please  accept our love and thanks."  On opening the parcel, Brown  Owl disclosed* a table lamp that,  she said, she had always wanted.  Miss Turner added that, for these  ���her first Brownies���she would  always have a special place in  her memory. So our first birthday is also a farewell to our. first  Brown Owl.  Then came the food! What a  feast! The Guide's Local Association certainly looked after us  well, we had cold meats and salads, buns and cookies, fruit-  drinks and ice-cream. Whilst eating, we were paid a flying visit  by Guide Captain Miss Norma  Melvin and our enrolling Guider  of last year, Miss Joan McTaggart who will, of course, always  be a very special Guider to the  Sechelt  Guides arid Brownies.  Then we had our birthday cake  which was a real Brownie one,  covered in chocolate icing. It had  dancing, golden Brownies all around the sides. On the top was  one golden candle and in gold  writing was "Happy Birthday 1st  Sechelt Brownies" and the Brownie motto "Lend A Hand", with  the sixes, golden bars and golden hands.

Sunday School Picnic  Enjoyed by Families  By BETTY WILLIAMS  SECHELT��� The newly-formed  Auxiliary to St. Hilda's Guild,  under the presidency of Mrs. Lee  ^Redman, made a grand start in  their determination to help  where needed and, primarily, to  rally around Mrs. Thelma Brooker and her Sunday school.  At Mrs. Brooker's request,  plans were made and carried out  for a Sunday School* picnic, and  all' was kept quite simple.. It  was a family affair, each bringing its own food and drinks, although pop, ice cream, suckers  and chewing gum were given out  to the children.  There were races for all mem-  to give in to ourselves."

After the awards, Mrs. Day  presented trophies, as follows:  To the best sport of the year  (Girl)���Ruth Norris, a lovely silver trophy, depicting a girl athlete. This trophy was bought by  the girls, partly from money  received when they won the  Strathcona award last year, and  partly donations from Mr. True-  man, Mrs. Day and Mr. Veitch.  This trophy will be returned  next year, so another student  may try for it.  Chrissie Stewart, a Grade 9  student won a beautiful cup for  the best note book of the year.  This cup was donated by Grayson's Groceteria. Chrissie may  keep the cup for one year, but  must return it next year for  further competition. If she wins  it three years running she may  keep it. Runner-up, Eugene  Blomgren, also a Grade 9 student,  won a smaller trophy, which he  may keep permanently. Linn  Johnson, a Grade 10 student,  won $2, as third prize.  Velma Cresswell gave a short  farewell speech to Grade 12  Graduating Class. Miss Cresswell stated that this is both a  happy and sad time of the year.  Happy to get out of scHooi for  the summer, but sad to lose  Grade 12 students.  Pat Slinn, Valedictorian of the  graduating class, was given the  Annual Award of The Reader's  Digest Association for students  who by their, successful school  work give promise of attaining  leadership in the community.

From where I am seated I can see all the beach and  the youngsters are having a big  time splashing around in the water, which is quite warm. And  the lovely girls in their equally  lovely swim suits are a sight to  behold!  Where is this spot? The Redroofs, of course!  Next week the summer crowd  will be arriving in earnest and  we shall be very gay as we greet  old and new friends. Some of  the high school crowd are already  here, having been recommended  past their exams, and enjoying  a few extra days of freedom.  Saw Mr. and Mrs. Thorn and  family up for the week-end. Mr.  George Nairn, who caught two  more fish on Sunday, was here,  and Miss Betty Hunt and guests  Mr. and Mrs. Brian Edwards;  Miss Nellie Ross, Mr, Doug Lid-  ster, Elaine Simpson and family;  Mary Simpson and family; Mrs.  Lunn Sr., a remarkable body,  who is badly crippled with arth-,  ritis but who is so happy and  cheery in spit of her handicap.  She was busy knitting socks, and  doing a good job, too! No dropped stitches. Her friend Mrs.  Hedgeling helps her with the  turning of the heel, as this is  done on two needles, Mrs. Lunn  has to use a circular needle, and  her work is wonderful.  Mrs. Hedgeling gave me tea  and some wonderful home-made  shortbread,     and    something    I  ors, "in recognition of past accomplishment and in anticipation  of unusual achievement to come."  The Reader's Digest Association has presented these awards  yearly in senior high schools  throughout the United States  and Canada to the highest honor  student of the graduating  class.  The awards are part of the'  educational program sponsored  by the Association and were a  logical outgrowth of the wide  use of the Reader's Digest in  school work.  The award to Pat, who is the  son of Mr. and Mrs. S. Slinn of  Grantham's, was made possible  through the cooperation of Mr.  Trueman and Mrs. Day.  They selected Pat to receive  the award, designed to stimulate  scholarship, citizenship and continued contact with good reading after graduation. Bill Pye  on behalf of the Boys' Basketball  team, presented a medal to Pat  Slinn. Pat was captain during  the last school term. Bill was  last  year's  team  manager.  Mr. Manning, retiring School  Inspector, was present at the  meeting, and made a speech to  students. In his speech, directed  specially to the Grade 12's, he  said that school meetings were  carried on much better than  adult meetings he had attended.  Mr. Manning gave much timely  advice to. students who would  be looking for jobs. Mr. Manning has been School Inspector  for 28 years, and has been in  charge of this district for 14  years. He is now retiring for a  well-earned   rest.  Chairman of the meeting was  Ted Parnwell, President of the  Student Council.  THE COAST NEWS, Sat., June 25, 1949  13  By PEARL PUNNETT  COMMENCING on June 21, there  will be two picture shows a  week in the Lower Dance Hall on  the Union Estate.  Mrs. Nancy Dorman, R.N., is  here from Quesnel where she  has been nursing at the hospital  for the past year and now is enjoying a well earned holiday.  Lots of activity going on these  da^s along the Government  Road from the wharf, with poles  and wiring in readiness for the  switch over to B.C. Electric  power, which also will mean  that lots of private owners will  be able to have electric light, as  before it was only available on  the Union estate from their own  private plant. Its too bad to have  to lose shade trees to make way  for poles, but that's progress for  you!  ��� The Vancouver Pioneers Association held their annual pic-  ��� nic on June 22. It was too bad  the sun didn't cooperate, but  they seemed to be having a good  time.  haven't seen since I was a girl in  England���Eccles cake.

Meikle, president of  Elphinstone Branch of the VON,  was hostess at her home at Welcome Beach, Halfmoon Bay, to  the visiting officers of the VON  1 on Sunday.  Miss Christine Livingston, national supervisor of Ottawa, Miss  Esther Robertson, western supervisor, Miss Creaser, B. C. Provincial Supervisor and Miss  Helen Irvine, our local nurse,  were guests. A beautifully appointed tea table centered with  a bowl of roses from the Meikle  gardens, was very much admired,  and Mrs. C. Barnhart assisted the  hostess in receiving the guests.  They were loud in their praise  of our lovely bay and hope to return for another visit.  Mrs. Meikle, president, Mrs.  W. Waddell, secretary-treasurer,  attended the regional conference  held in Vancouver last week.  Mr. and Mrs. Earl Lauchlin and  Mr. and Mrs. Emerson spent an  interesting week-end at Hotham  Sound, Jervis Inlet. They caught  26 sea trout and saw the beautiful falls and visited friends in  that vicinity.  Mr. Harold Pearson took his  son Barry to a picnic at Sechelt.  They enjoyed seeing the ball  game and Barry was tired but  happy when he arrived home.  Don't forget to leave your notes  in the box at Redroofs Store or  at Ed Pratt's.

Friends of  Miss Marilyn Gibson, now staying in Wellington, B. C, will be  pleased to hear she is well, and  though she likes her place of  employment, she misses Pender  Harbour.  Mrs. J. Stigson and Mrs. M.  Warnock were recent visitors to  Vancouver, as were Mr. and Mrs.  W. Warnock and Linda. Mrs. D.  A. Macdonald was also a visitor  to the city.  We are sorry indeed to hear  that Mr. S. Rose has had to go  to Vancouver to see a specialist.  He was accompanied to town by  his daughter, Mrs. J. Baker���we  certainly hope his indisposition  is of short duration.  Norm Klein and Co. are logging on the Macdonald property  now, and then Brown's.  The VON had a very nice garden party last Saturday. The  weather was perfect, but the attendance was quite poor. They  did fairly well, though.
