Vol. 4 ��� No. *&  Gibsons, B. C.  Monday, May 22, 1950  5c per copy, $2.00 per year, by mail  BILL SUTHERLAND  Editor, The Coast News  THERE are some things that are  better left unsaid but then  there are those among us who  just have to tell the truth as we  see it. And that leads right into  what I witnessed when attending  the Klondyke XNight in Pender  Harbour.  She was playing the pin ball  machine and wore a long green  dress. She had red hair and a  nice smile. She had a partner at  the other end of the machine who  was���of all things, helping her to  cheat. The lady in the green  sheath was Mrs. Eddie Wray  while Mrs. Marie Roy was busy  poking the little balls into the  many holes.  "There are strange things done  ,'neath the midnight sun." But  seems there could be weirder  done by the ladies who frequent  these Klondyke Nights. There  could be one saving feature about  this expose arid that. is, neither  of the ladies in question were  even trying to collect for their  high numbers and they were doing it quite openly and to top it  off there were bearded miners  and frock coated gamblers like  Jim Marsh, standing by and  watching the whole proceedings.  While I staggered around the  gold nuggets and dodged bullets  from Bill Peiper's sixgun, I noted -  the kid on the music box, he was  really hammering that ragtime  tune. Harry Race was the fellow  and he was getting more kick out  of playing than the hanging judge  was with his verdicts.  Alan Stuart got himself a five-  buck fine because he had shaved  since .the edict against it was  handed down several weeks ago.  During these doings the attorriey-  ^eneratipor- prosecuting attorneyX-  pr what have you, complete in*  long coat and beard, was screaming for the maximum penalty  every time one of the beardless  ones appeared.  Mary Bergenham was getting  a kick out of a dance with Teddy  Osborne who was just getting a  kick.  I glued onto one of s the best  looking gals in the hall and she  was really nice. She gave me a  big smile and that Klondyke  look.  I figure right away that maybe I'm not so bad after all, and  started in to straighten my tie  and slick back the few hairs.  Then sonieone comes along and  looking straight at my new girl  friend, says, "Hi, Ed. Where in  heck've you been this last while."  I take another look at this  smasher and find out it's Ed  Green, who had just arrived,  complete with negligee and what  ever these women wear.  Mrs. Maggie Wray was having  fun going the rounds. She is  rated one of the best along the  bayous of Pender Harbour. Her  smile was easy to look at. I can  see why she is so popular with  everyone.  Dan MacDonald held sway at  the Crown and Anchor but when  I took a look at the percentage  winnings for the house I thought  I had better stay with the darts  game being run by Dan'll Boone  Sam Anderson. How com Dan'll  got so 'far north?  Jeff Brewster was busy with  the ladies and his stand, the  Lucky Dip, while Bill . Matier,  from his forty years in the Harbour, looked down through the  ages and' chuckled, "Man, you  shoulda seen some of the times  we had here." I would have just  loved to. X  Jack Cummings was boasting  about his winning the longest,  beard contest. Grabbing the  prize by its neck he X headed  through the crowd tothe open  country beyond. Only four kids,  eleven men and a tame bear were  knocked kicking as he left. Ernie  Cotton, got the tables turned as  they hung him for breaking rules.  They yanked him from behind  the judge's table to do it too.  And so ended one of the bright  evenings for the Pender folks.

High  light of the battle was the hitting  of Bob Norris who managed to  pole out a four-bagger, the only  circuit clout of the session.  Norm McKay did a good job on  the mound for Gibsons, being  supported  behind  the  mask  by  Wilf Gray.  Sam -McKenzie started pitching  for Sechelt but took a trip to" the    parade  dugout making way for Reynolds        ���"���    -  who tightened the game for the  remaining  three  innings.    Rudy  Crucil was given the accolade for  his short.stop duties.  It is rumoured that next game  between the seniors will be  slightly different. It is believed  the rumour originated in Sechelt.  Kinsmen Raise  $73 Polio Drive  GIBSONS���Kinsmen,   by   means  of the recently completed polio  drive; raised $72.95.  This is money which will go to  the general polio fund in Vancouver but will be primarily earmarked for expenditure on the  Peninsula.

GIBSONS ��� There will be no  more   Sunday   afternoon   fire  brigade practices.  According to a recent decision,  Sunday afternoons will now be  free for the volunteer firemen. In  their stead will be meetings  every Monday and Thursday at  the site of the proposed hall, at  7 p.m.  SECHELT���A challenge to all boards of trade on the peninsula  and to Sechelt in particular was thrown  out   by  E.   Parr  Pearson when he addressed Sechelt Board of Trade Monday.  Speaking on tourists and what other communities are doing toward bringing the holiday dollars within their grasp/ l\Ar  Pearson scored the lack of initiative here. He contended that  the Peninsula is lacking in publicity. "We should do much more  toward informing the American tourist of our great attractions/'  he said.    He contended the economic future of the Peninsula depended  to a very large extent on the  tourist industry. He, having just  returned from a tour of the Northern States, suggested that we  are far behind in our promotional campaign. "We must get our  message over to the tourist in  order for them to even think of  coming here," he said'.  Grand hotels and expensive  auto courts are out of the question. "What we need and what  will follow an influx of tourists  is economical auto camps where  a family can do a little of their  own cooking." He compared the  activity on the peninsula in the  old days when families used to  come here fpr the week, to now,  when only a few of the potential  many arrive.  "Information and publicity is  the answer to our lack of visitors," he claimed. Pointing out  that Sechelt could someday become a trading centre he cited  the case of Mission City which is  now the shopping centre for a  great area. He believed the same  destiny lay ahead for  Sechelt.  Mr Pearson pointed out that  many summer homes and homes  catering to visitors were not, for  the last two years, filled to capacity. He pointed to this as proof  of a dwindling trade and urged  boosting for an increase.  Reg Jackson took exception to  the speaker's contention, when  he drew attention to "the prohibitive cost of building camps  now."  The garage man recalled his  many years in the tourist trade  and suggested that building  camps was out of the question  judging by the present trade potential.  Mr Pearson thought if the flow  of tourists was boosted there  would be a need for further  camps and people with the money backing would then naturally  follow.  Outcome of the meeting and  discussion was the Board appointing Mr Pearson, Andrew  Jackson and Raymond Deacon as  a publicity committee, charged  with promoting advertising and  public relations in connection  with tourists.   .  PEPPAR TO  GIVE TALK  GIBSONS      Farmers'      Institute  general  meeting   will be  held  Monday, June 5, in the Community Hall at 8 p.m.  Guest speaker will be A. H.  Peppar, vice-president of the B.C.  Farmers' Institutes, who will discuss "Health From the Soil." It  is believed this is one of the most  interesting subjects ever to face  the Peninsula.  A hearty invitation is proffered to all.   -  Prominent Vet  Passes to Rest  GAMBIER. ��� Captain Neil McLeod, prominent member of  the Howe Sound Island fraternities, was laid to rest May 12.  Manager of East Vancouver club  of- the Army,-Navy and Airforce  Veterans, he was an honorary  member of the Gambier Island  unit. He played a prominent part  in establishing the latter.  Known to all as Skipper McLeod, he was one of the most respected and probably the best  loved man in the B.C. provfncial  command of the veteran organization. He gave much of his  time to good and was prominent  in any work having to do with  "boys' work." He did much toward raising the mony for presentation to the Boys' Brigade of  their beautiful camp at Brigade  Bay on Gambier.  The funeral was held at the  Chapel of Chimes, Vancouver,  under the auspices of Unit 68 of  the Army, Navy and Air Force  Veterans in Canada. Over five  hundred people attended the service with Chaplain Berry officiating. Among the notables attending including representatives  from nearly all ex-servicemen's  organizations, were the following: Brigadier Sutherland-Brown,  C.M.G., D.S.O.; Harold Winch,  leader of HM opposition in the  legislature; Major George Styles,  President B.C. Provincial Command; Dominion First Vice-President Percy Sanford representing  President A. H. Wickens, K.C.,  of Moose Jaw; Major John Heath,  M.B.E., M.C., representing Unit  276; Captain Francis Drage, J.P.,  Fourth Vice-President of the Provincial Command; Henry War-  burton, JP, secretary B.C. Provincial Command, and President  Woods of Unit 12, Victoria.  In his service Chaplain Berry  stated that Skipper McLeod is  not dead, that he is still with us.  There is no doubt that the soul  of Skipper McLeod still goes  marching on.  Children's Swings  Receive Council O.K.  GIBSONS���Village Council went  on record as completely approving work of the Kinsmen  Club in offering to provide  swings for children in the municipal playground.    Permission to    start   construction   was   granted." "  A letter received by the clu^jJ}jAH3S  conveys   the   village   thanks   for  the unit's interest in children.  Beaches Will  Have Boards  GIBSONS��� Recusitation  boards  will be on the beaches between  Pender Harbour and Hopkins  Landing by May 24.  This decision was made by the  Kinsmen Club when final arrangements for stencilling instructions were made recently.  This culminates a long schedule of effort in which every  Kinsman helped. The boards are  sturdy in construction and easily  operated. Complete instructions  as to their use will be posted  where every board is placed. The  work of conveying them to the  various beaches will also be volunteer labor provided by the  club.  W. A. Peterson has been in  charge of construction throughout. LEAVE CANADA TO WORK FOR NIPPONESE  ���Central Press Canadian  Four hundred pure-bred angora rabbits from Kitchener, Ont, are  flying to Tokyo, Japan, to start a new industry there.     Here, a young  Vancouverite makes an Easter food offering to the long-haired, pink-  eyed rodents, before they took to the sky to Nippon.  Readers Say ���..  SIR.���Would  you  please publish  the following.  Miss Velma Cresswell,  Secretary,   Gibsons  Landing  High School Student Council.  Dear Miss Cresswell,  I was very pleased to receive  your letter. It was nice of the  students to pass this resolution  and I greatly appreciate the  thought of your so doing.  The reason I have' not written  before is that I was waiting to  learn the result of the bylaw. I  am glad it passed and that you  will get your schools.  You will, I am sure, make good  use of your new facilities. I am  equally sure that it will assist  you ail in becoming the kind of  Canadians that will serve well  this country of ours.  There is one thing I would like  to say to the students and I know  they will take. it.in the..spirit; in ���  which it is meant. Education 'is  all important, but even more important is freedom. There are  many aspects of freedom, freedom to work as you see fit, freedom to worship as you may, freedom to live as you will, but the  most important freedom is freedom of speech. Your fathers and  my father fought for that freedom, and our forefathers fought  down throughout the countless  years for this the greatest of  freedoms. Without freedom of  speech there is no other freedom,  and through freedom of speech  agreements can be reached and  almost insoluble difficulties  solved. Throughout your lives  guard well that freedom, it is  your greatest heritage. It is your  greatest safeguard.  With  all my  good  wishes and  may God bless you all,  Sincerely  FRANCIS DRAGE, JP.  Pender has New  Nursery School  PRE-SCHOOLERS       in    Pender  Harbour now have a school all  their    own.     A   nursery   school  supervised by Miss Sinikka Ko-  lehmainen   is   held   in   the   club  house each week day from 9:30  a.m. to 12 noon. Sixteen' children  are now attending and it is hoped  more mothers will become interested and send their youngsters.  A committee of three mothers  has been formed to aid the supervisor:     Mrs.     Lloyd     Mcllwain,  president; Mrs. Bruce Inrig, secretary;  and Mrs. Joe Archibald,  treasurer.

SECHELT Board of Trade has, at long last, taken  the first concrete move  in what  can easily  end in prosperity for the Peninsula.  In its three-man publicity committee the  Board has the nucleus of a snowball that can  build and build until it brings tourists and business here. Headed by ' ex-newspaper man Ernie  Pearson, the committee is already on. the right  path with plans laid for a map folder which can  easily rate with any put out by some of the big-  time tourist organs. The committee is being practical about it also���it will cost them little, if anything.  From the springs of Tia Juana on the Mexican border to the glacial parks of Jasper National,  the key to business���tourists to us, lies in the  spreading of information. What good is it to us,  that we on the Peninsula are living on one of the  loveliest spots on the coast, and only we know it?  It has long been conceded that the only industry which can really survive on this garden  spot of ours is that of the tourist. Tourists go  where the appeal is greatest. Do you know where  most appeal comes from? From posters, pamphlets and brochures also the greatest of them all,  word of mouth.  This Peninsula has taken one or two halfhearted swings at getting out a pamphlet but it  always died a natural death���in some cupboard  of some committee chairman in some cove along  our coast.  The New Sechelt committee is starting right.  Even  now���the group  is only a week  old, it is '  working out ways and means of distributing literature   to   the  tourist  world.  That  is   the first  thought and the proper one.  *  If this group is given the proper support there  is- absolutely no reason why the Sechelt Peninsula  should not become as well known, as Banff or the  Annapolis Valley. We have * everything to offer  here.  We are rich in rugged beauty and scenic  grandeur. Our summer climate is second to none.  We are short of hotels, and summer camps but  they will naturally follow.  It is absolutely useless to sit back and say,  "Why get tourists to come here, we have nowhere  to put them." Get the summer visitor coming  here by the thousands, and hotels.and camps will  follow. They are natural followers of desire or  need.  . From  Pender  Harbour   to  Hopkins  Landing  are  many  homes   and   private  boarding  houses  which are only too willing to cater to the visitor. :  And yet,  some  of these homes,  "the majority," -  ILrnie Pearson said, were looking for more trade \  during the last two years. \  Does that mean we need more camps and ho- j  tels or does it mean we need more tourists?  Sechelt Board of Trade believe the need is  for more visitors.  We believe with the Board of Trade. We will  willingly do anything in our power to help the  Board achieve its purpose.  We offer any help we may have ��� any knowledge we may have ��� any influence with outside  sources ��� we do have, that will in any way help  the committee to put over its story of the beauties ,  and glories of Sechelt Peninsula. We believe, as  the committee does, that word must go forth from  these hills and volley from dark pitted bays and  fiords of Pender Harbour, from the warm, friendly waters of Porpoise Bay, from the Hills beyond  the swimming spots at Hopkins Landing, until  they strike the ear of every person on this continent who has a dollar to spend on pleasure.  GOING PIACES WITH MUTUAL  ��� In character, in manner, in  style, in all things, the supreme  excellence is simplicity.���Longfellow. ��� SECHELT  By "ARIES"  WE ALWAYS feel as though we  had a special interest, as if we  were responsible or something,  when we hear of one of our local  children who have made good use  of their talents. We are pleased  to pass on this information so  that many of his friends and  school mates will know about it  also.  Bobby Aylward, the son of  Constable and Mrs. W. Aylward,  who went to school here when his  father was on this station, has  been judged the best boy actor  in the drama festival which was  open to the schools of central  Vancouver Island and held in  Duncan last week. Miss Eleanor  Hewitt,   adjudicator  for  the  de  partment of education, Victoria,  was high in her praise of Bobby  and said that he would go a long  way in the field of drama if he so  wished. The winning play was  The Ghost Story in which Bobby  played the part of George, thereby winning a scholarship to the  University of B.C. to the summer  school  of  drama.  Of course Bobby comes by his  talent honestly as the saying goes,  his mother is an outstanding pianist and a very capable director.  We notice that she was director  of the P-TA play presented at the  festival, and his father, Constable  Aylward, is an actor of great ability. The Aylwards were a great  loss to us when they left here.  However we did. get the P-TA  started and Mrs Aylward was  first secretary. Also we had a  very nice girls' choir started  which is so ably being carried on  with a new group of children.

Later on we  may be proud to say we knew  Bobby Aylward, he went to  school here.  Also another boy known to us  who has shown ability and will  be going places soon is Hugh  Creighton, one of the twin sons  of Mr. and Mrs. Creighton, who  have their summer home at Selma Park. Hugh is corporal of  pages in the legislative assembly  in Victoria, and is getting firsthand information on how governments are run in "this country,  and very wonderful education  for any young boy. He is also  the nephew of Mr. and Mrs. W.  Youngson.  Ten dollars more was added to  the St Hilda's Parish Hall building fund through a social evening, at the home of Mrs Thelma  Brooker here recently. Those enjoying the evening which was an  effort of the De Ponsier circle  to raise funds were Mrs T.  Brooker, Mrs Jack Redman, Mrs  Harry Billingsley, Mrs C. Blan-  chard, Mrs Laycock with Darlene, Mrs Betty Williams with  Margaret, Mrs Duncan McColl,  Mrs Jack Nelson, Mrs Ruth Collison, Mrs Ernie Pearson, Miss  Beryl McClean and Mrs C. Lucken and Doreen Doyle.  Had a call from Brigadier  Gillingham of the Salvation  Army known to us for some time.  We are very interested in the  good works of the Army. Tells us  that a campaign for funds will  be under way soon on the Peninsula. We help with this every  year. It's a good cause, the Army  does a lot of good. So watch for  a canvasser Won't you and give  generously.  Wish more of the residents  would support the local movies.  Mr and Mrs West are making a  good try and giving us a show  and the hall it's like Vancouver  when the lights are low anyway  and the seats are very comfortable but still the same old few  faithful fill them. If these young  people are to carry on they must  get a better attendance. Mr West  addressed the audience last week  and explained that it costs about  thirty-five dollars to run a good  picture and when there is a poor  attendance he stands a great loss.  THE  COAST  MEWS, Monday,  May  22,  1950  A western which a great number  of us do not like costs much less  and therefore pays better so how  about it. Give these young people a break. Mr West is a war  veteran and certainly deserves  all we can do for him. He surely  has tried to help himself.  A social evening which netted  the St Hilda's Parish Hall an additional $13.00 was held at the  home of Mr and Mrs Alec Grey  recently. Winning the prizes at  whist were ladies' first, Mrs Geo  Taylor; gents' first, Mr F. Gibbons; consolation ladies, Mrs  Postlewaithe; gents', Mr Lawson,  and nice surprise during the  evening when a decorated cake  was cut by two couples celebrating a wedding anniversary, Mr  and Mrs Stewart Killick and Mr  and Mrs W. Lawson.  Congratulation on* the birth of  a baby daughter to Mr and Mrs  Jim Steele.  Summer is here now as we  have seen Mr and Mrs Louis Yel-  lowlees getting the boat in trim  for their usual spot of fishing.  Had a slight fire here recently  the small cottage belonging to  the Service Store and occupied  by Mrs Marcroft and son Donald caught fire through the curtains blowing against the kitchen stove.

Then  the Ginger Bread man which was  under the supervision of Miss  Elsie Turner was very much enjoyed the singing was very good  and Roger Lucken gave a very  wonderful performance his voice  was very distinct and heard even  at the back of the Hall. Carol  Forst as the baker's wife and  Raymond Stockwell as the baker  were very good also the Queen as  portrayed by Diana McColl and  the King by Henry Newcomen  were really good and the King's  Coachman, Henr Stronsheim did  his part without a hitch although  difficult.

Some very tense moments getting the results of the school bylaw voting from all points up the  line were spent last Thursday in  school board office.   It was quite  an interesting hour as the results  came  in.    It was  close,  but no  complaints, we have the vote in  the    affirmative,   and  that's   all  that   was   necessary.     Now   we  will have to wait for the customary one month, then the preliminaries, it will be a while before  we  can  do very  much, but the  future looks  a little more rosy,  and hopeful, don't think the folks  who voted yes will ever be sorry.  Firmly believe that no one will  ever have to carry a burden too  heavy for them.    Somehow these  things always work out for the  best,  and  I'm  sure   deep   down  many a person who  so  bitterly  voted   "No"   will   one   day  look  with pride on the new buildings.  So it would be a fine thing for  every one to now get behind the  school  board,  bury their differences', and work for the common  good.  It. is far better to build good  bodies than to mend bad ones.  SAFETY AT CAMP  Going camping this slimmer?  If you are, the chances are the  milk you buy will not be pasteurized.

I have passed  another- milestone, dozens of  huge blackfish have been seen  cavorting and frolicking in the  bay. Once these big fellows get  going they put on quite a display.  There must be a reason for  their appearance down here at  this particular time of the year,  so, if any of our local fish experts can help out, we would be  glad to know why.  I see the Brewers have gone  back east, which won't affect Mr.  Kennedy in Victoria, because the  Brewers I refer to are Percy and  his wife. It's hard to figure out  where you would like to spend  the remainder of your days in  retirement, and. so, after a look  around Wilson Creek and Davis  Bay, they have taken a run out  eastwards and will decide when  and if they return to the coast.

This will be the fourth weekend in this month that I have sent  in a column of events and happenings at Davis Bay. Up to now  it seems they have been consigned to the wastepaper basket. How  bad can it get. However, one  more splurge and only because I  keep thinking each week we  shall see something in the press  about  our little community.  I'd like to tell you of a mishap  which occurred a few days ago to  Mr. White who, whilst en route  to Garden Bay from Vancouver  with a payroll, had the misfortune to be confronted with engine  trouble in his boat. He drifted  back possibly 200 yards when he  became caught on the rocks close  to the sandbar. His engine gave  a final spurt but the propeller  came off second best with another rock that wrote "finis" to  his present efforts. He jumped  over the side almost shoulder  deep and tried in vain to push  the craft from its position into  deeper water. Mrs. B. Wright  went down to the waters edge to  see what was going on and before  she knew, she was being given  hundreds of dollars in cash and  cheques, also a watch which by  this time were sodden with the  water, and his wallet looked like  a wet rag. She received instructions to dry, which she did in  the oven as she laughingly remarked, It's the first time I ever  had over a thousand dollars  worth of "Doe" in my  oven.  The story has a good ending.  Everybody was satisfied with the  old clothes and underwear which  .Mr White was forced to borrow  from Mr Wright, size didn't matter. Well Jacksons took the boat  under their wing and everybody  is happy. But should this catch  the eye of Mr White he will be  glad to know his air-taxi ticket is  dried and safely'stowed away in  case he should need it.  FOPt HEALTHY TEETH  Scientific research has discovered methods whereby it is hoped  a large percentage of dental decay will be eliminated. But until  these ne wmethods have been  thoroughly tested and brought  into widespread use, one of the  best methods of maintaining good  dental health is the regular use  of the toothbrush. Twice-yearly  visits to the dentist are also a  "must" for good dental health.  v^  &  Mil  i.
