Coadt  V lews (L*>ditorial5  So Parades, Please  THUMPING out of the past and looming,into the present is the  rumour that the Pacific Coast Militia Rangers may again  live and parade-  We are somewhat sorry to hear that, as it is very doubtful if  the.very worthy and loyal PCMRs could live as a parading saluting and manouvering unit at the moment.  Canada is not too willing to go to war. Her soldier sons are  hardly fighting each other to get into the barracks and until the  heat of war is actually fann ing our cheeks, as it did in 1939, it  will be very difficult for the authorities to enroll a non paying,  non clothed group such as the Rangers.      . " ,  Canada's fightin or active army is not too big at the moment  and the reserve army is even less imposing, so what chance the  PCMRs would 'have, must of necessity be less than that of the'  soldiers who get paid for parades and are in line for uniforms,  arms and ammunition in quantities always denied to the part time  Rangers.  We believe the Rangers may again come into their own but  not for some time yet. The heat has to be on before we can expe.ct  men to do what the Rangers did. It would be bad for local .organizations .to try and "reactivate the. PCMRs now. Their failure  would undoubtedly reflect to the discredit of the unit which  would affeqt later enrollment when,-and if, such is needed.  It's a case of"being too soon. .   '      v  Money U The Root  THE JIG WE SOUND Farmer's Institute Fair is drawing closer  every day and with it more and bigger headaches for the  controlling committee. ^ ' asj  Money, as always, seems to be the root of the trouble.    .    .''  The farmers are faced with increasing the cash prizes demanded by exhibitors and with doling out more money than usual  for everything they need to buy. Prices have a way of increasing  as the farmers well know and the increased costs can infiltrate  into the most worthwhile and harmless venture or program.  L c.al merchants, upon whom falls the brunt of every public  endeavour, have just about been drained dry.  It seems that this year has been a bad year for donations. The  local cssh register has been tapped to a greater extent than ever  befo?v and it looks as if it is going to be tapped some more.  This is hardly the fault of the merchants, yet it is hardly the  fault -of these good people who are promoting so many worthwhile and public benefiting'programs. ;  There is one irrevocable law that must be remembered by all  who -have a yen to dip at the well of merchants and that is, it is'  impossible to continually haul out bucketfuls of .money from the  well which^is being fed spoonfuls.  The merchants, in self defence just have,to say, ''no''-.  ���We sincerely hope'that all concerned withhold that "no"  whe'r ittcomes to donating to the. Farmer's Fair.  That is one gathering doing more good for Gibsons and ���  district, its ego and its collective purse strings than any other.  !f there is a spare dollar at the bottom of the barrel, we-suggest it be dug up for tlie Farmer's Fair.

'  Main fish being caught at the moment seems to be the spring  salmon which is just as popular as ever with local housewives.  Several cod have been caught  in the Porpoise Bay area while  the Pender Harbour region has  been yielding a spasmodic but  good bounty of fish.  Several fish around the 20  pound mark have been taken  off Gospel Rock while Vancouver fishermen have been known  to take several 16 and 18 pound  salmon home following a day  on the usally placid water-  It is believed the main spring  salmon run will be several  days getting here according to  'local experts and the news from  the northern w'aters where  local commercial fishermen  (have gone.  SECHELT  Bv ARIES.  WE WOULD like to remark  on the nice services held in the  Anglican  Church a few  Sundays ago. The rural dean was  .'..-absent-owing to  sickness  but  r our -own-miiiistei},  [Reverend  H.TI. Oswald gave a very timely  address. The  combined  choirs  rendered   many   suitable   anthems while hymns were sung  by the congreation.
