Cougar     tracks  have    been   aic(ted.   outside  the. Indian Residential School.  This recalls again the story  of the three cougar which fell  last fall to the deadly cooperation of James Dewar, his pack  of trained dogs, Percy Cliff,  Corporal Les Lane and Coir  sjtable" W.A. Peterson, R.C.M.P.  who, following information  "that cougar tracks had been  seen in the vicinity of Roberts  Creek, tracked and destroyed  three of the marauders.  .The big cats have been prowling closer to; inhabited :,areas  following deep snow andpiard  frosts in the upper reaches.  This is the first report of them '  actually being within pouncing  distanct of Sechelt.  OFFICE ROUTINE  TEAMING STARTS  regist-  regret-  WILSON CREEK. Mrs J.  Renton and Mrs C. Maywood  have opened classes for shorthand, typing and bookkeeping  in  this  area.  Answering the "increasing"  demand for tuition, the two  ladies decided to open a school  for they who wish to ' learn  the   art  of  office   routine.  Glasses are held in the home  of Mrs M. Haywood.  SECHELT. Captain Andrew Johnston was installed as president  of this area's Legion Branch at the annual meeting, Tuesday.  ���������"Erie Ihglis was installed as president of Branch 109, Gibsons,  at similar ceremonies there.  Both units have been backing the brief presented to the  .government on behalf of  pensioners, and widows and  dependents of pensioners *in  relation tio lowering of hospital fees.  In accepting '^he position,  Captain Johnston announced  he and the unit "would bend  every effort to clear the large  Legion Hall   of   debt   in   the  CONSTRUCTION  COMPANY BORN  GIBSONS.  Something new in  the  building line  has' been  added.  This area, Recording to Cliff  Gray, one of the partners, has  its first construction company.  " Harry Smith and John  Cattanach are the other (two  interested in the firm known  as the Peninsula Construction  'Company.  In: the: words o��" Mr. Gray,  "we think this area is just on  the threshold , of big things  and we are going ��0 help it all  we can.  Mr Cattanach, a native of  Forres, Scotland,; is a well  " known carpenter in the area  having worked- on several jobs  as an independent contractor  and has also done work with  the Federal ^Government on  various V.;whairves    throughout  . sons Grocery, is :a popular.figure in public life here. He is  -a member of the Board of  Trade and- Lodge 130 of A.F.  and A.M. He is also ai qualified  draughtsman with years ot'  experience as architect and  cost planner.  Harry Smith was born in  New Westminster and came  here in 1927. Following school  he learned his trade as engine  fitter with Eaisthope Brothers  of Vancouver. Harry spent  four .years with the Royal  Canadian. Navy and following  his 'discharge has been in the  coming year".  "I am fully confident the  club' can throw off this -load  Captain Johnston said. "We  shall also continue our eharji-.  .table work,. and .will -do "* our  utmost to look after the needy.

Mr  Inglis will lead his unit during  the coming j^ear along the -path  of  increasing   the   work   done  for the youth of the area.  %    lit is the intention of Branch  109  to. broaden  its efforts on  behalf.of the unit and its many  charities   also   youth   training.  ' Dances will be sponsored  during the coming year in  order to aid the Legion Scholarship fund which is being.  . sponsored by the Gibsons  branch. At least one student  will be granted sufficient  money to continue his scholastic studies at the university  of his choice, by virtue of the  plan now under way.  cement    contracting    business  here.  Mr Eric Thompson of  Hopkins Landing will act as  legal adviser for the firm.  NEW MAIL SERVICE  FOR GAMBIER ISLAND  GAMBIER. This Island will now get mail three times per week  according  to   an   announcement  made   by" James   Sinclair,  M.P; who has been fighting for better mail service for the island.  Following is the letter from  Mr Sinclair.  It has been difficult to provide a: decent service for  Gambier Island since the Union  Steamship . cut down their  schedule.  The Post Office Department  has now agreed to using the  school boat between Hopkins  Landing and N.e-w Brighton  and so. supplying New Brighton and Gambier Harbour with  three mails a: week, Monday,  Wednesday, and Friday.  This will also help facilitate mail delivery in another  fashion, the letter hinted.  It will help the postal department when all mail destined for this -area can be funnelled   through   Gibsons.  Sinclair's Help  Requested  ROBERTS CREEK. Robert  Macnicol was guest speaker  at a recent meeting of Branch  219, Canadian Legion, when  the subject of discussion was a.  brief "Preparedness" submitted by the Legion Dominion  Council to the Federal Government.  The meeting sent a resolution to James Sinclair, M.P.  urging support, of the brief.  Mr Sinclair had previously  suggested what his action  in this matter would be when  he spoke at a public meetmg  in   Gibsons. ~2"~  TiVB UOaSfJvews      rnursuay���reoiuai; -w   x^x  Homework!  ---: '   ��� -.v.^7?" -'-' ���'���"���'.'.-���r��.'Ci  VV;^'-"-':v-.^i..-��^'-'"' **-.c?:..  ..:^p^fe^^.^g^^^  Water Should be Next:  THE VILLAGE of Gibsons, like a caillow  youth's mother, finds that her problem  is no longer the making over of clothes from  Pop's old 'handme downs'. She now has to,  from some as yet untapped som*ce, find new  cloth from w^ich to construct proper' garments.   . - ;"���''������������  Village fathers are now fa'ced with, the  biggest job they will have for many years to  come. It is time they buckled down and  planned an overall program for supplying  water to village residents.  Gibsons and the Village Commission are  in the same position as the mother. They are  now faced with the huge problem of planning  and installing a water system that is more  than a network of patches and silly littje pipe  additions here and there. \  This village has grown to '{twice its normal  size within a matter of days, and village  .fathers are going to be caught napping.  ��>.,. ;This year, and the decisions made this;  ryeaf, will have far reaching effect on the happiness, comfort and economy of future Gibson-  ��� ites.  There are -several points that should be  'discussed and thoroughly investigated before  some  one comes  in  wiith  another  $8  or $10  thousand bylaw which will only result m a  "water system like Joseph's coat.  *������   I Wiiat will the income of this village be  in 10 or 20 years from now, taking into consideration probable expenditures. This has to  <$>e guesswork we know, buit accurate forecasts  ���: tan be made.  2 Whatwili be the probable population -  faking into consideration Port Mellon and the  increase  from  the  ear  ferry.  3 What' is immediately needed in. the  water department and how will that work in  with a long term plan. In other words, jus.t  how soon must action be directed on this  pressing subject?  4 How large a money bylaw will be needed  in order to put over a comprehensive, encompassing system,  complete  with  steel  or  cast  iron pipe?  We were lucky in having Mr Bracewell  -refuse to sanction the recent $7500 bylaw.  That Was another stopgap measure which  would have remedied only part of a many  portion problem.

We most earnestly suggest that this problem be tackled with a view to 20 years from  now. -We know,- and'you know, that only by  spending a hundred dollars now can we save  thousands later. *  It must be remembered the cannery, needs  new pipe in the very immdiate future. There  are'sections of the newly incorporated village  which is entitled to -waperl.; There is a very  limited supply of wa^erf^the inomeht; emanating from, the old cannery.property just  bought, by the village. True^ the,,water shortage .  may be only for a matter of Va,�� day in the  middle of a dry summer, $ufr that is the clue.  What will happen when subscribers are increased three: fold?    \{pp,lP?:r:. :������"'������'���  Has the village couneilyahy idea:of where  it is gohig on this huge job?v  Will dt.continue td/patchy and mend and/  scrape  and borrow parts-?: Or will it get its  teeth into the problehij^fhe most pressing in  many long years?

By Alexander  IN THE WORLD today, where  ever we look, there is war  or rumors of war. The solemn  undertakings between nations  have been violated, treaties  have now in truth become  scraps of paper.  In the days of the Crusades,  It  was  war  against  different  religions,. then  wars   of   eon-  quests   for   territorial    gains.  The  first, great   war   was   a  struggle for the domination of  Europe.     After    the    uneasy  peace of the twentys and the  thirtys, we had a,truly global    war,    a    struggle    against  dictators  by   the   free   world.  Now we are fa;ced   with a far  more    vast    struggle -against  conflicting   , ideologies.    Brute  force against brute force.  What     will     another     war  ' mean! Let me tell y.pu. .In. the  perversion of science we have  pla'ced weapons  in  the  hands,  .'.of nations,  that .if iised,  may  we'll mean the...end of civilization asVwe know it., for if only  . one-of these'weapons, the at-  - omie bom'b "is used to its ultimate   efficiency:   THERE'IS  I NO    DEFENCES,    the;    after  ' effects  op ���the  atmosphere  of  the     world     is     incalculable.  i When  are we  going  to  learn  that war settles nothing, and.
