To their eternal shame, many  of these wits are, in fact, expatriate Englishmen whose careers are devoted to a libel of  the English character.  I can't work up any real anger about this. I am concerned,  however, about the surprisingly  general feeling on this side of  the Atlantic that the BBC is  something of a joke and, in fact,  almost a synonym for the most  dreary kind of radio listening.  Recently, in a round-table debate on American radio, the  head of one of the networks defended lhe U.S. free-enterprise  (or midway side show) kind of  radio by suggesting that yes,  American   radio   had   plenty   of  The Board Works For Yoii  work   for   it  NOW IS the time when membership committees of the Boards of Trade throughout the  Peninsula should be out drumming up interest  in the work of the Board of Trade and signing  up new members.  There is plenty to show for the efforts of  the Boards during the past year. The road  work in Gibsons is the direct result of agitation started by the Gibsons Board of Trade to  have the work done.  The construction of the Sechelt wharf  which will be started within a few days is another result of Board of Trade work.  The Board of Trade is the strongest voice  there is to express the wishes of the people,  and governments appreciate this fact and pay  attention to requests of a Board of Trade.  The true strength of a Board of Trade in  small communities such as ours is that it is  representative of every class of people from  every walk of life. There are no restrictions  barring anyone from membership. Every man  and woman interested in the progress of the  community should be an active member of the  Board of Trade. Every idea that is formulated  should be presented to the membership of the  Board of Trade so that committees might'be  set up to discuss the idea and possibly follow  it up to a conclusion.  The Board of Trade can and does work for  you every day of the month���surely you can  work for the Board one day a month. Don't  wait for an invitation to become a member,  apply for membership now���you will be welcome.  faults, but at least it wasn't the  Florists9 Flowers ... they are keys to the doghouse, too  BBC. The audience chuckled ap  preciably at this sally, probably  having in mind the kind of radio character portrayed by Ray  Noble and his ilk.  The trouble with all this is  that it overlooks the truth which  is, curiously enough, that the  BBC���that state-owned, totalitarian, bureaucratic system���  makes commercial radio on this  continent seem as adolescent as  the burbling of a baby in its  bath.  It is quite true that the BBC  presents many programs that  would never be heard on an  American chain, but this is a  criticism of American radio, not  British radio. Let me give you  an example.  The BBC  is extremely  aware  that radio is a medium of sound.  Its engineers and producers are  forever   experimenting  with   the  impressions and moods in noise.  I  recall once hearing  an  entire  15-minute broadcast made up of  a montage of sound at the beach  of Brighton on a summer day���  the  rumbling of ihe'small peb-?  bles sucked outward by the receding waves, the far-off shouts  of children, ihe  high  scream  of  the gulls, a snatch of conversation about a washed-up crab and  so   on.     The   whole   production  was    unhurried    ahd    delightful  ahd  pure radio.  Such an imaginative approach  is not the exception, but the  general rule in BBC programming. In newscasts, for example  (themselves models of reserve  and factual reporting), it is not  uncommon to hear the actual  voice of the men or women in  the news or a brief, 'dramatic  sound-picture of an actual spot  news event, adding, in effect,  an extra dimension to broadcast  journalism.  Such experiments are possible,  of course, because the BBC can  afford to be adult. No BBC program, for example, is forced to  start with an announcer's exhortation to listen. No program need  aim its appeal at the lowest intelligence  in  its  audience.  Hav-  CANADIAN florists experienced something of  a boom in their business during last year  when $30,000,000' worth of buds and blooms  were puchased by the public of this country.  This volume of business was revealed recently by an official of the florists' national  association and indicates to some degree the  prosperity  of post-war Canada.  rJut that is the dull, drab, dollars-and-  cents attitude.  One should not. overlook the sweet sentimentality the trend might also indicate.  Flowers have their own amorous language  expressed in the warm red blush of the rose,  or the cold purity of the lily.  Upward swing of the flower trade might  indicate, Heaven forbid, that we are becoming a nation of dewy-eyed poets.  But the blooms have another use, too, as  any married man can testify.  They form a sort of leafy camouflage for  the often flimsy tale, "I was held up at the  office, dear."  In that capacity they frequently represent the key to unlock the door of the often-  occupied dog house.  It would be impossible to estimate the  number of major and minor domestic. rifts  that have been evaded by this delicate approach, this "soft answer that turneth away  wrath."  Yes, flowers have their place in our lives.  Olir Beloved CBC . . it acts as judge and jury together  THE REQUEST of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for an increase in the  radio license fee from $2.50 to $5.00 is pure  unmitigated gall and the psople of Canada  will find such an absurd suggestion intolerable.  Why should Canadians dig down in their  pockets for'a-doubled, fee for owning receiving sets when the purpose of such a fee is to  enable a government-owned system to compete with private enterprise?  The system under which radio operates  in Canada is all wrong because the CBC not  only controls all radio broadcasting in the  country but competes with the private stations  it controls.  The principle of the thing is inherently  iniquitous ' because it puts the CBC in the  position of a party to a legal action who is  also the judge sitting on it.  But even this system was not completely  disastrous ^so long as the CBC kept out of  commercial broadcasting.  When Canadians were getting commercial-free programs over the CBC, they felt  they might be getting part of their money's  worth.  But today the CBC is frankly and openly  commercial.  It sells its time to advertisers and still  expects the Canadian public to foot the bill.  And now it comes along with the nervy  proposition that the Canadian public should  pay just twice as much.  It should be remembered that this proposal for a doubled fee does not include experimentation in new fields such as television.  Not at all. We are told that when television comes to Canada, at the CBC's pleasure, a  further tax of $10 a year will be levied on  television sets.  The whole business has got entirely out  of hand.  We are paying through the nose for a  government monopoly that is restricting instead of encouraging radio development in  Canada.  Instead of giving the CBC just twice as  much public money to play with, the government should restrict the CBC to a purely conT  trolling body and throw the entire business  of broadcasting into the hands of competitive  private enterprise.

Near the burned  over area, about seven mile  from Powell River, the vet nol  iced the. bear on the roadsid  and stopped to see how close h  could get to it. A bag of peppei  mints brought the little felloe  right into the car, and after  few he was put aside and th  party  continued  on  tb  Lund.  On the return trip, Maste  Teddy was waiting at the roac  side in the same spot, passin  up all cars until the Cain veh:  cle came along. "Just for fun,  the doctor said, "I kept on goin  to see if he really knew the ca:  and sure enough, he did. He id.  lowed us until I finally stoppe  and loaded him aboard."  The bear had been kept as  pet, the vet thought, f<ir he ha  a collar-mark around his neck.  "He was pretty hungry, and also  pretty helpless. We checked with  the authorities and finally turn-*  ed him loose, although he didn't  want to leave."

"Canadian mothers would feel  comforted if they could see the  graves in Holland," said Mrs.  Bristow who is President of the  Silver Cross mothers of Canada,  Vancouver Branch R.C.A.F.  "They are beautiful and cared  for by the Dutch people in gratitude for the liberation by the  Canadians." Mrs. Bristow's son,  Dave Bristow, a flying officer  lost his life overseas. He was a  well known tennis player in  Vancouver and as a small boy  with his brother Bill who was  also a flying officer and his cousins Larry and Tom Bruin, also  air force and army personnel,  spent most of their holidays with  Mr. and Mrs. French. Mrs. Bruin  also has had an outstanding  military career as a lieutenant in  the C.A.M.C. in the first world  war. She was transferred ffom  Shaughnessy hospital and military annex to Qualicum where  she had her most famous patient  the Prince of Wales, now Duke  of Windsor, it was his first visit  to Canada and too enthusiastic  Canadians had shaken his right  hand entirely out of commission. Mrs. Bristow had a very  hush hush job on munitions and  again in this war came out to  work for Vivian's Engineering  Co. She is now with Department  of Veterans Affairs. They both  laid stress on the fact that we  should do more, for Great Britain as the distress in Britain is  very great, more and more parcels should be sent by every one  of us, especially should the Canadian Legion take this to heart  and dispense a little cheer to  those who are going without so  much. Plans are afoot to organize a pilgrimage of mothers in  1951   to  visit  these  places.  Mrs. R. Jay with Merrily and  Ditty have just returned from  a marvelous holiday in northern California, where they were  the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Alec  Birney of Samoa. They travelled  by bus which is a good way to  see the country and were much  impressed by the trip through  the Redwood forest oh the way  to Samoa. The ranch owned by  the Birneys has its own water  and electric light systems and  everything for comfort. They  hope to go again and have a  longer stay but duty calls as  Mrs. Jay is one of our local  teachers.  Had �� call from Hilda Gow  of Vancouver . staying at Selma  Lodge. She wants to know what's  .wrong with the Selma News, and  why don't we do it as she subscribes to the paper and it is  the only way she has of knowing  what's going on up here. We  don't know why we don't do it,  that's up to the boss. He allocates  the districts and if Selma is as  hard to squeeze news items out  of as is Sechelt, we think we  have enough without it. Exhausted now!  We have been thinking quite a  lot recently of Nebuchadnezzar,  King of Babylon in biblical times  who you will remember did go  out of his mind and fall too and  eat grass as an aftermath to evil  living. Now we wonder if perhaps in those days there may  have been day excursions and  the poor old King was swamped  with friends who were on a diet.  Here we were for instance looking forward eagerly to seeing  friends that we had not' seen  for many a moon, three of them  from Vancouver for purposes of  anonymity they shall be Wvnkin.  Blykin,. and   Nod.   We  had   our  lunch all ready. Trout would be  a treat we thought, with baking  powder biscuits, and . a cheese  souffle which, we do make really  well if we do say it as shouldn't  with 8.V. juice cocktail as a  starter and raspberry tart as a  finisher, not so bad we thought.  Well after getting over the  shock of seeing those who were  once pleasingly plump now as  thin as fence rails and shrieks  from Nod who hates cats and  poor placid Smokie relegated to  the wood shed only to keep  coming out of the window into  the house for another round of  screams, and admiring the smart  new hair do's the smart hats  and hand bags by this time we  were practically starving and  feeling very much like a country  bumpkin, we sat down to lunch.  Oh, says Blykin, no juice  darling. I am allergic to Tomato  juice, have you any pineapple.  No, we had not, any grapefruit,  none of that either. Oh dear, says  Nod, no cheese dear, gives me  hives and no fish either unless  done in the oven with the merest  bit of butter. Of course we had  rolled this in bread crumbs and  fried a light brown in deep fat.  Oh! and no biscuits for any of  us, we having been using enriched bread toasted very thin,  and dry. We had none of this  either, so compromised with  brown bread from Betty's and  last but not least, Oh darling,  no pastry, just fresh fruit. Well  here my sense of humor (if any)  got the better of me. Going to  the phone I called Parker's  hardware. Jim, this is Aries  speaking. I would like a nice  rubber bath mat for dinner.  Have Ben Lang dip it in For-  malyde to give it a flavor and  send   over   at   once.   Thanks.  Says Blykin, you have lived  in the sticks too long, you are  going crackers! Going we  thought we have gone, as we  could have sworn that those darn  cats were each leaning on one  elbow with a paw under each  chin like Rodin's thinker and  Winkie waving a handkerchief  over his head in a gay farewell!  Crying together, Yo Ho girls,  come again and dashing madly  into the house to consume the  remains of trout, cheese souffle,  and baking powder biscuits.  They are not allergic to any.  Move over . Nebuchadnezzar.  Here we come! Where's that  grass!  We were so pleased to meet  Mrs. A. McTavish, an old friend  who is at present staying with  Mrs. L. Yellowlees and to ask  about the trip taken last year  when she and Mrs. Charles  Coldwell paid a visit to Denmark, Belgium and England to  visit their sons' graves. We do  remember with loving regard  these boys, who as young men,  made the supreme sacrifice, Gordon Coldwell son of Mrs. Charles  Coldwell and Alastair McTavish.  May their memory live on in us  and when we repeat our oath at  the Legion meetings 'Whose  sacrifice are beyond all telling  Lest we forget! Lest we forget'  let it not be a meaningless  statement. Let us show these  brave mothers that we too remember.  Visiting Mr. and Mrs. Norman  White with son John this weekend were old friends of the latter, Barry Begbie and Bob Armstrong  both  of Vancouver.  William Garry the infant son  of Mr. and Mrs. W. B.

His godfathers were  Alan Wood and Wally Malakoff  and godmother Jean Wood.  We had something here the  other day which caused as much  excitement as Ogopogo did at  Kelowna. But ours was merely  a landing barge the same type  that was used by the British  landing troops. It was run up  on the beach and tied in front  at Wits End of Mrs. White's  where the owner, a friend of the  Whites, dropped in for breakfast. Soon sure enough the sightseers started to come down the  waterfront. Boys, girls, men in  cars, and boys on bikes. Mrs.  White was kept busy answering  questions and we had just given  advice on how to use a megaphone was wondering if a little  cash could be made on the side.  Ye Gods, said Mrs. White, one  would think it was Noah's Ark.  Anyway the owner Mr. Vic  Lock took it all in his stride and  went on very calmly with his  meal.  Visiting Mr. and Mrs. W. McKissock are Mr. and Mrs. Norman Taylor and daughter  Wendy   of   Vancouver.  We understand there will be  a few changes in the local forestry office. Ron Jones will be  away on special training, Ted  Christian will also be leaving  us and Grant Campbell will be  going back to the University.  Good luck boys, we shall miss  all  of  you.  Mr. and Mrs. Laycock with  daughter Darlene were in Vancouver for a few days returning  in time for school opening.  Also Mrs. E. Parr Pearson with  Diana and Kendall attended the  P.N.E. where the children had  a lot of fun.  Elaine Gowland has returned  from Mission where she spent  the summer with her sister and  brother-in-law, Mr. and Mrs.  Bobby   Kean.   Says   Jennie   and  Bobbie and the small fry are  well and like the new location  very much.  Lily Gowland also visited her  mother this weekend at Sechelt.  Lily is in business in Vancouver  and G. Gowland spent the holidays with his family and did  quite a lot of work on the new  home before returning to Osborne's Camp at Narrows  Arm.  Mr. and Mrs. W. Malakoff  visiting Mrs. Malakoffs parents,  Mr. and Mrs. Nels Nelson. Mrs.  Malakoff is the former Florence  Nelson.  Visiting Mr. and Mrs. E. Er-  icks were Mr. and Mrs. N. H.  Galer of Vancouver, sister and  brother-in-law of Mrs. Ericks.  Also E'rn - Ericks and Miss Nina  Don of Vancouver, they enjoyed  their stay and hope to visit Sechelt again in the near future.

Oh, do not blame me for I did  not know that Ye Old Editor  would stoop so low, as to give  me all this work to do, and then  turn  round  and  give  it to you.

Mr. and Mrs. Murray Hume  are having a vacation here and  enjoying the beautiful September weather.  Mr. and Mrs. Jack Weston  were here over the long, weekend.  School opened on the 6th with  a new teacher, Mrs. M. Neilson.  There are about 22 pupils, including  the  three  beginners.  Mr. and Mrs. Claude Pidgeon  returned last week from a visit  to their daughter and her family at Halfmoon Bay.  There was a picnic trip on  Labor Day of the CYO. Quite a  large number of young folks enjoyed  the beautiful weather.  Mrs. Betty Weston returned  this week to spend a few months  here.  The Sunnyside Fishing Club  had a salmon derby on September 4. There was quite a number of fish weighed in but no  extra large ones.  It was quite a busy week-end  around the Union Estates, with  the tennis tournaments and then  a masquerade at the dance hall  to finish up the season.  Mrs. J. Brand and Beverley  have returned after a month's  vacation in Calgary visiting with  her daughter, Mrs. J. Jamieson.

Our old  friend Charlie Brookman, who,  by the way, has had a fairly good  season on the fishing front, decided to build a smoke house  and put a few down for the winter. Well smoked fish and canned fish (bak-shease) is a great  help these days of soaring cost  of living. However, Charles  placed his fish lovingly on the  hooks inside the smoke house  and waited patiently for the outcome of his experiment. Alas,.  when his faithful timepiece  showed the hour had arrived,  Charlie opened up the door, only  to find that all his wires had  disintegrated, caved in, burnt  out, or call it what you will. But  instead of smoked salmon, it  was "barbecued."  Let's find time to congratulate  Mrs. Andy Johnston on her recovery from a recent illness.  She took time out to escort her  boys back to the city and school.  Met Mrs. McLean from Gibsons recently a store clerk at  the Trading Post. On enquiring  about the farm she says it's hard  but interesting work. She tells  me that they are< acquiring quite  a variety of stock.  After spending a pleasant  holiday at their summer camp,  Mr. and Mrs. Bob Bromley have  returned to the city. Bob hints at  making his camp into a permanent residence in the near future.  I'd like to see all the camps occupied permanently at Davies  Bay.  I am pleased to announce the  first rehearsal of the Sechelt  and district choir will be held  at the Legion Hall Thursday,  September 22, and every week  thereafter. Among other items  of business to decide will be,  name of choir, type of music,  and finance. Many have been  looking forward to this first fall  meeting, and it is hoped a good  turnout of music lovers will be  on hand at 8 p.m.  Barry Charles is the name of  the newly born infant son to Mr.  i and ,J\irs. > "Chuck.", Nickerson ,: of  Davies Bay.

Dad McPeake is a past master in the art of carpentry, and  is proving it by adding on to  Jerry's house, when its cool  enough to work.  Mr. and Mrs. Napodi and Mr.  and Mrs. F. Slade made a jolly  pleasant foursome at the Scarlett's summer camp. Disappointed at first over their unsuccessful fishing bouts were rewarded  almost at the eleventh hour, and  were they happy.  Mr. and Mrs. T. Barlow of  Vancouver spent a few days at  the summer camp of the Dowling  family.  Several beach parties were organized by Jack Macleod in  honour of their guests over the  holidays. Miss Helen McLellan  and Mr. Max Stanwick of Vancouver.  The Rev. A. Thomson and wife  have returned to home and ministerial duties at Burnaby after  spending a very pleasant month  at their new house in Davies.  Well we have another newsy  at the Bay in the person of Dave  Lucken, a smiling pleasant little  English boy, only been here two  weeks from the Old Land. Didn't  take him long to get busy.  cording to several people who  were nearer than I, the catch  was very disappointing. That's  an understatement, the correct  figures were three sockeye, four  hump-backs and a few other  mixtures. Fifteen fish in all.

Gordon Beale invited several  of his playmates and their mothers to help him celebrate^ his  sixth birthday. It was a very  lovely party with such a nice  big cake with Gordie's favorite  chocolate icing.  Several localites travelled to  Blind Bay on September 3 for  the sports and dance. They included Mr. and Mrs. John West,  Mr. and Mrs. T. Peddie and a  friend from Vancouver, Mr. and  Mrs. M. Silvey, Mr. and Mrs. D.  Jeffries, Mr. and Mrs. C. Beale,.  Mr. and Mrs. J. Silvey, Stan Silvey, Vera Jeffries, and Jim and  me.  Mrs. Peddie won the ladies'  .22 rifle shoot with Mrs. West  coming third.  Unfortunately for the Blind  Bay youngsters, there were no  kiddies sports as there weren't  enough visiting children. However, everyone seemed to have  a good time and all proceeds are  to go toward a community hall.  James Paul of Sechelt, who  was fishing around Egmont, was  flown to Vancouver from here  Sunday to undergo an emergency appendectomy. Don Jeffries  accompanied him on the trip and  Jimmie was operated on minutes  after the ambulance arrived at '  St. Paul's Hospital. I understand  he's coming along nicely now,  though.  GRANTHAMS  LANDING  MARY W. RENNIE  RESIDENTS   around   Granthams  did not need  to  be reminded  that Tuesday was the first school  day after the  long summer vacation.   The  quietness  was  most  noticeable   until   the    afternoon,  when     the    school   bus   arrived  back  with  the young  folks.    It  didn't   take   them   long     to   get  home and into their bathing suits  and   before   long    the    familiar  shouting    and    splashing    was  heard at the wharf, making one  feel glad that summer was here  yet for a while.  WILSON CREEK  By A. JOHNSTON  THE IRRESISTIBLE charm of  Wilson Creek has brought back  with us, at least temporarily, the  Art Langleys who recently moved up to their Cariboo property.  Art is again working for Burns  & Jackson Logging Co. and the  family has moved into the house  previously occupied by Mr. and  Mrs. W., Bourne. We are all  happy to have the Langleys  back and hope their stay will be  of a permanent nature.  Mr. Ernest Grist of Royal Oak  returned to Wilson Creek for his  annual week's fishing and as  usual stayed with the Brook-  mans.

It is to be hoped that the  fine -weather will continue during the time of their vacation.  We wish them a safe journey:  caught is not known, but Charlie  Brookman has erected a special  smokehouse for curing salmon,  which may be taken as an indication of the results.  Mr. Reg Jackson, Wilson  Creek's gift to the speedboats  regattas, returned from the Victoria races minus gold cups but  full of enthusiasm for bigger and  faster speedboats. If dogged determination is a criterion of ultimate success, one can rest assured that Speed Jackson will  be right on top in next year's  regattas.  An old-timer in the district,  Mr. Roger Green, is preparing  their Wilson Creek residence for  the arrival of Mrs. Green. Their  two daughters are now both  married and Mr. and Mrs. Green  are renting out their Vancouver  home to take up permanent residence at,Wilson Creek.  By some strange logic peculiar  to the federal postal authorities,  residents .of the Peninsula require less frequent mail service  after Labor Day, hence new mail  schedules went into effect on  September 6 with further restrictions promised for the near future.

Saturday night one of our  "padres" from the district found  himself marooned at Port Mel  Ion, and wanting to get back to  Gibsons in a hurry, decided to  take that well known trail to  Gibsons from Port Mellon. Started off about 6 p.m., figuring he  would be out of the woods by  8 p.m. at least', not knowing our  woods very well. He was still  going strong about 10 p.m. The  arm of the law, being notified,  started out after the intrepid  traveller, and with one of the  party being familiar with the  terrain, they finally located him  at Twin Creeks, sadder and wiser  about the Port Mellon trail. It  was a beautiful night, raining  and blowing, with a little thunder and lightning thrown in to  make it interesting. Through the  kindness of Messrs. Buckley and  Scott of Twin Creeks, they were  taken by boat to Williamsons,  and met there by car around 1:30  Sunday morning. The party was  finally brought home none the  worse for the experience, although the constable got himself  a real fine summer cold out of  it all. There's one comforting  thing���whenever anyone is lost  or strayed, there's always the  "limb of the law" handy. But,  fellas, he sez, better not start  making a habit of it. And his advice to anyone contemplating a  safari to Port Mellon via this  trail is "Don't."  Mrs. Helen Reilly has sold her  home to Roma and Jimmy  Schultz and will be leaving the  Landing for points East around  the end of September. Certainly  sorry to see her leave, but know  she will come back this way in  the near future.  Steve Littlejohn arrived one  day late for school. He left Los  Angeles in time, but two breakdowns of the bus on the way  home tied them up. He informs  us that there were seven buses  at the line all waiting to get  through.

While on the subject of food,  did you ever try cooking that  chicken or baking that salmon in  a brown paper bag? It's a won  derful saver. Just put your  chicken, turkey or -what-have-  you in a paper bag, put it in the  oven and just forget about it  until you figure it's done. It will  come out lovely, no need to  grease it or anything. It just  steams itself, and browns without burning. Just a little baking  saver thought you might like to  try.

The  dates will be announced later.  The road situation certainly  gets grimmer as the days go by.  It looks as if they've turned poor  old Gibsons upside down; certainly couldn't look any worse  than it does right now. But we  hope for something real good  when they do get finished. What  with water mains being ripped  up, and bulldozers tearing them  up, poor Wally doesn't know  whether he's coming or going.  We've cried enough for good  roads for so long, now that it's  becoming a reality we wonder  if it's ever going to be finished.  And we're all keeping our fin  gers crossed that the fine weath  er will hold out until the worst  of the work is over.  School got away with a bang  Tuesday. They tell me school enrolment at Roberts Creek is  down, and Gibsons holding its  own. Every building in Gibsons  that can hold a classroom is doing so, and for the first week or  so little. Susy and Johnny won't  know which teacher is teaching  which, until they get things  thrashed around and figured out.  They tell me that little building  at the back of the school hall  will be serving meals���hot  lunches, that is, for the school  children���as soon as cold weath  er starts, and the persons in  charge of that will be Mrs. Wyatt  and Mrs. Hughes from Roberts  Creek. Which seems to be a very  By   Glenwood  WELL, folks, it looks as if summer has come���too late for the  usual campers and visitors. I  managed to coax my doctors into  letting me have a week-end at  home. Had a nice quiet time.  And young Sylvia was very glad  Had quite a wait at Horseshoe  Bay, where I have a number of  acquaintances and friends  amongst the drivers and ex-  drivers of the Howe Sound Fer-  ies, water taxi operator and cab  drivers.  Mrs. F. W. Alexander's guests  have left.  Was glancing through our  stockpile of the Province Sunday and came across an article  on John Labatt, president of La-  batt's Breweries in Ontario. A  pretty good article, too. Made me  remember I have a souvenir,  given me by one of the stewards  of the officers' mess, the Lincoln and Welland Regiment,  when they were at Camp Nanaimo in 1941. It is an ash tray  advertising Labatt's, also stout  and lager. This was brought up  from Ontario with the Line's as  we called them. Then when I  joined up I took it with me, first  good idea.

Am kind of proud of it as in  the 25 months I was at head  quarters, First Canadian Army,  quite a host of top ranking offi  cers used it, including Gen. A.  G. McNaughton, Gen. Crerar,  Gen. Kenneth Stuart, Gen. Jack  Luton (director of Medical Services), Maj. Gen. Turner, Maj.  Gen. Hertschberg, the then Brig.  Guy Simmonds, and a host of  others. To most of them (off  duty, of course) I was just Ed  and my highest rank was corporal.  Sure, a man is king in his own  home, but his queen usually  takes the jack.
