 BILL SUTHERLAND  Editor, Thev Coast News X  IF YOU want to be aggravated  j just take a stroll down to the  jwharf and watch the local sports-'  (men wander onto the floats with  !an air of nonchalance while the  *tail of a 35-pounder is casually  [(dragging on the timbers. How  ijsome of these people can even  jtry to be so uninterested when  Jjthey are dragging their left hips  |in the mud from having to lean  ppver with the weight of a finny  ronster, is beyond me.  ,,   Lew Reid was on the street the  [jother day with a good one, but  '" e  seemed to  be  quite  pleased  ith the idea. If I had caught it  |I'd be pleased too.  I   Talking to several of our local  limoguls   one   day I   came   across  pthe interesting fact that baseball  pholds sway over everything else  fein the mind of our youth.  I   Gordon     Ballentine,    for     in-  Istance,   is   teaching   a   group   of  | youngsters   some   of   the     inner  ^workings   of  cameras  but  every  atime  a ball game  crops up  the  [[class just seems to disappear} in  If act it never gets to the meeting  "'place.   This   has   caused   Gordon  i'and teachers of the other classes  |to   wonder   how   come   the   sun  f beating down on a hard-ball dia-  |mond and the spat of a well-hit  Sphere    could    possibly    detract  ^from their  scintillating  lectures.  I To all of them I would say, "cast  fback your minds  to  the   fallow  ^ years and be guided by the pictures conjured there."  |;   I just heard a cute joke about  % one of our local ministers and one  | of the Gibsons truck drivers.  It  Cseems that the minister's car and  ihe truck driver's truck met just  in front; ypf the  SheU..Gas;-.-,Sta-i  |tic(^ j^Eh^  1>d�� spiiriti_rin|Xw&  | "irig metal and the swearing rage  |of the truck driver. The trucker  I'stayed with  it ; and   called    the  ^minister   everything but   a   gentleman.  The  padre   sat    quietly  land listened as becomes a man  | of the cloth. When the truck man  | had finished giving the minister  ffhis category���for free, the black-  j. coated gentleman climbed out  land said:  t "Because of my calling and by'  p virtue .of my upbringing, I - find  |it impossible to return your com-  |pliments.' But this I will say.  I "When you return home to-  s night, I hope your mother runs  I from under the porch and bites  j you severely."  I     The minister was NOT, as has  .been so maliciously rumored, the  I, Reverend H. V. Oswald. But the'  ; truck driver could be any of our  I locals.  ';    Wandered   into   the   Board   of  y Trade meeting the other day and  listened to discussions on publicity   C.   P.   Ballentine   had   ideas  about   bringing   in  settlers.   His  ��� arguments were good. He claim-  | ed that bringing in settlers from  the prairie  would    pay'    better  than anything.  He figured that every pensioner would spend from $700 to $1,-  000  every  year,  would  bring you  said.  Does   anyone  know  where  we can find ten settlers?  Just the same, the idea has its  merits, so don't be surprised if  you see C. P. dragging in about  twenty. screaming people. Probably they will be all tied together complete with a. haymow to  keep them satisfied until they  get the. fish scales in their hair.  Nevvy Baldassi, brought here  to operate tbe Sechelt Garage for  Reg Jackson when it opens, and  who also toots a mean horn during dances, tells me that1 he had  a narrow shave the' other day  when his steering knuckle broke  and - the lights in his car went  out at the same time. He landed  in the ditch but he .could just as  easily have been somewhere  around Secret Cove and then it  would have been a different  story. It just goes to show that  it doesn't pay to operate these  clunkers. Why don't you make  him buy , a new Ford or something, Gladys"? ,  ���   Jack Mayne was grinning as he  "Ten    settlers  $10,000,"    he  6erving a Progressive and Growing  Area on B.

Word has been received that contractors for the wharf  proper will be on location sometime this week. Costing more  than $100,000, the new plank structure will have a 60 feet span  at the approach end in order to release logs1 which may pile  there.    .  The approaches, 24 feet wide are now completed. Huge  boulders line both sides making a nearly wave proof wall. It was  this wall siding which roused residents following it being washed  out, then being rebuilt, then being washed out again.  It is believed the new wall with its outer fringe of boulders  /Will withstand the storms.  A two-wing breakwater has also been approved. Within  the wings will be dredged a shallow harbour for small boats. The  'harbour* will be 100 feet wide, when completed. It is not known  when work will start on this.  GIBSONS���This community's Board of Trade has launched itself into the  publicity field in an  effort to attract more  vourists.  With acceptance of a publicity program, proposed by the  Board's own publicity committee, and the planning of a "Housing Committee", Gibsons  Board  of Trade  has  thrown   off  its  iethargy and will now attempt to lure the tourist dollar.  Well   aware   of   the   fact   that      :   Sp  Majo  ort Fund Gets  r Donation  iff  GIBSONS ��� Another boost has  been  given  The  Coast    News  fund   for  sports  equipment   and  uniforms for the new ball team-  Members   of  the    Army     and  Navy veterans, during a general  meeting     on     Gambier     Island,  Sunday, donated, along with the  ; club, $32.30, This brings to $37.30  the sum^ral_ied within''one week.  Many of  the  members     were  Gibsons  men who    believe    the  money was well'spent. Father E.  O'Dwyer,  coach-manager of  the  new   baseball  team,     feels    the  same way.  We are certainly grateful for  any donations, the padre said. It  is b ythis means that we can pro-  ��� vide the necessary for another  team. This is the only chance  that a goodly number of youths  have for developing their talents  along athletic lines.  The fund is still open. Send  your donations, from ten cents  and up, to The Coast News. All  contributions will be acknowledged and gratefully accepted.  Bylaw Changes  Now Looming  GIBSONS ��� Objection to 33-foot  lots and. warnings that lanes  should, be provided in new subdivisions, have been placed before the Village  Commission.  Robert Macnicol and J. Hall,  members of the Gibsons and District Ratepayers' Association directorate filed their disa proval  of the subdivision bylaw which  has now received three readings.  They charged that any authorization of 33-foot lots and subdividing without lane allowances was a retrograde step.  Commissioner Mrs E. Nestman,  had previously, to this paper, assured -she would recommend  changes in the bylaw prior to its  third reading.  Mr Macnicol feels there is no  justification for small lots such  as those authorized in the bylaw.  "This would only add to the fire  hazard,"   he  commented.   ���  asked the new Sechelt salute.  "What you gpt on the hip, boy?"  Ben Lang seemed to be waiting  for the answer as he leaned out  the door, while Ernie Barker  grinned in anticipation as Ken  Whitaker said, "Wait and we'll  get Jim Parker. He can run over  and get hold of Mickey Coe and  then we can have a cup of coffee  or something with Jack Richardson.  None of them looked like they  wanted coffee.  New Hall Will be  Opened by "Batt'  PENDER  HARBOUR   ���   B.   M.  "Batt" Maclntyre, popular  MLA, will open the new Madiera  Park Community Hall, June  16.  Pender Harbour May Queen  will also be in attendance. This  is the culmination of much planning and work by members of  the Pender Harbour Community  Club, sponsors of the hall. Ending of the -dance! has not been  scheduled which-leads to- the belief that it will be of major proportions.  Ex-Wrens Will  Hold Meeting  DOMINION-WIDE Wren Reunion to be held in Toronto August 25th, 26th and 27th, 1950. Information regarding special rates  for,transportation and accommodation can be obtained from Miss  Mary Darling, 1255 W. 12th, Vancouver.  there are no hotels for accommodation of visitors a "Housing  Committee" under chairmanship  of Publicity Committee Chairman Bill Sutherland and Gordon  Ballentine, will make a survey  of homes that can accommodate  one or two visitors.  It is pointed out there are now  several towns in Canada which  utilize this method of accommodation where the hotels are  limited.  Mr Ballentine points out the  plan is to make a survey of all  homes with a spare room, or  room on the verandah or back  shed that would accommodate a  single, double bed, or several.  These will be listed on a readily available board and controlled by a member of the Board  of " Trade. When visitors arrive  they can be immediately accommodated. "There will be no need  for housewives to get ir^olved  with cooking," he said. "Tne restaurants are well qualified to  look after that part. All that is  needed is room to sleep."  Speaking at the meeting which  authorized both the publicity  program and the 'housing scheme,  A.. E. Ritchey .fdfrfe't old "when  contractors see * that ���? we are putting up these' people' they will  come of their own accord and  put up accommodation."  Two tennis courts will be open  for rental by next summer, it was  disclosed at the meeting. Plans  may soon be laid for at least a  two-net badminton court.  The executive meeting of the  board authorized printing of 10,-  000 colored folders, complete  with pictures and data, for distribution throughout the tourist  circuits in the United States.  According to Mr Sutherland,  the housing survey will start im-  Equipment Tenders  Accepted for Power  ACCEPTANCE of. tenders for supply of generators at a cost of  $49,340 and of turbines and other equipment to' a total of  $67,733 for the hydro electric development at Clowhom Falls,  construction of which will start this summer, was announced  by the British Columbia Power Commission today.  Bepco  (Canada)   Limited    will   supply two 1875 kva horizontal  type Bruce Peebles generators,  without stator shift and with solid rotor pole shoes, complete with  spare parts, at a total price of  $49,340.  Shipment -from Edinburgh  within 13 months is guaranteed.  Competent supervision of unloading from barges at Clowhom  Falls, at the head of Salmon Arm  near Sechelt, will be provided by  the .suppliers who will also supervise installation of the two  units.  Bepco (Canada) Limited will  also supply two Brown Boveri  regulators.  The Vancouver Engineering  Works Limited tendered successfully for the supply of equipment,  including two 2,000 horsepower'  horizontal turbines at a price of  $54,480.  The same Company will provide two 42" diameter electrically operated butterfly valves,  costing $10)150, and generator  coupling bolts and nut guards,  bearing barrel, thrust plate and  thrust   shoes,   guide   vanes   and  Zone Commander  At Sechelt Legion  BOB . MACNICOL, local Zone  Commander and member of  Dominion Council Canadian Legion, British Empire Service  League, will address the Sechelt  Branch in its club rooms tonight,  Monday. X,  Subject of his address will be  "Current Legion Activities".  This is the last meeting of the  branch, until end of summer period.  Play Time House  Popular Winner  SECHELT ��� Probably one of  the smartest entries in the Sechelt May Day parade was the  Play Time child's playhouse, donated to the P-TA by the Sechelt  Building Supplies.  Winner of second prize in the  parade,  taking  its  place behind  mediately. "This is a good opportunity for housewives to make  pocket money for the summer  and also assure the hundreds of  visitors who want to come here,  of at least sleeping accommodation," he said.  "We are right next door to a  million dollar attraction ��� famous Salmon Rock. People in Vancouver, and along the North  Shore, are even now cashing in  on the renowned salmon lair and  we, right next door, are letting  all that potential go to waste,  merely because we lack hotels.  "This country," he continued,  "has a greater tourist potential  than many of us possibly realize. We must attract these people. We must show them we have  these fine natural attributes; that  we want them to come and visit  with us. Too long this country  and its people have' been sitting  back and saying, "what have we  to offer?" We can't see the woods  for the trees.  "Sell ourselves first on this  great scenic and fishing wonderland. Let the golf courses and  theatres go. Tourists have them  at home. They come here for  something. different. We must  ��K.commodat)!_ them^-rsl;.'���/X, then*  v/here they can rest when they  are tired. They will pay. for that  and nature will supply the attractions.  "We must do our utmost to  promote what has been termed,  "the peninsula's greatest industry"."  The plan proposed by the  Board will work in conjunction  with that of the Sechelt Board of  Trade, even now considering  publicity methods, and the Pender Harbour Board of Trade that  has plans for publicizing its own  attractions.  Through the central committee  of publicity there will be no duplication of effort, it was explained. Each board will follow  its own thought for attracting  without stepping on the other  unit's toes.  "This central committee (independent of the three boards) will  act as a clearing house for Peninsula publicity. The central committee can be ignored whenever  it is convenient for any board to *  do so. The two-man unit will be  in an advisory capacity only and  will be concerned mainly with  liaison.  Summer Homes to  Be Started Soon  WEST SECHELT���Brunell Gordon is the man behind the  move which may see summer  homes soon being erected here.  Operating an insurance and  real estate office, the young man  who is handling Pan Abode  Homes, assures that new homes  "some fit for winter living" will  be started on his property just  west of the Whitaker property.  Roads have already been built.  "It  will be   only   a  matter   of  days,  now."  to raise funds for that organization.  From its side window pictures  of the May Queen, Mary Parker,  were taken. Pictures of the house  itself will adorn posters shown  throughout the Peninsula by*the  P-TA in order to promote their  raffle.  guide vane levers and pins and the winner, also a Sechelt Build-  guide vane links or breaking ing Supplies float, the house will  connections. be raffled by the P-TA in order Readers Say . * ���  SIR:  "The Sechelt Parent-Teacher  Association wishes to thank all  those who took part in the May  24th activities at Sechelt, thereby making the day an outstanding success.

The   parade   from     the     school  grounds was led by the band of  the North  Shore Cadets  (Naval)  followed   by   representatives     of  the Legion and Ladies Auxiliary.,  The    decorated    floats    were,  "Spirit of Progress," Selma entry.  "The Playhouse,"  Sechelt Building Supplies (Walker Bros.), and  Gordon West (Movies) honorable  mention to float with the Royal  Party and  maids of honor.  Representing the Pioneers  here before 1914 were Mrs Anne  Mills, Mrs Katie Deal for the  Nickson Family, Miss Amelia  James, Mrs Ada Dawe the daughter of T. J.

Girls six to seven. Marion Willows,   Carolyn     Watts,      Judith  >i  THE FIRST concrete move in boosting our. visitor stream,   (probably  the  main   industry  of  the Peninsula) has been taken by  the executive  of Gibsons Board of Trade.  In forming its "Housing Committee" the  Board has ��� done something which can be really  effective. This new unit ca nhave wide influences  on the whole economic outlook of the Peninsula.  That may sound like just so many words, but if  it is looked at closely, one can see the first small  ripple of what can become waves of tourists,  bringing their quota of dollars to spend.  The real test of this theory, (which works in  several towns in B.C. including Nelson during its  famous summer bonspiel) is the support and cooperation it receives from local residents.  If Mrs Brown and Mrs Smith have room for  one bed on their verandah or can clean out that  back shed so it can be slept in, or possibly move  the old chairs to one side in that basement room  in order to make way for one bed, and they announce that room to the central housing committee, then can the scheme be a success.  It's no more difficult than that.  Mrs Brown and Mrs Smith can charge the  two dollar rental for each bed, Mrs Black has  room for three beds so she can probably make  six  dollars per night.  The Board wishes to point out that the  scheme is for sleeping accommodation only.  There is no question of the visitors mingling  with the family or eating there unless the family  so wishes. It is simply and completely a bed  renting scheme  that works.  Many are the visitors who come here to spend  a few days fishing at world famous Salmon Rock.  Many will come here for the Kinsmen Salmon  Derby, why should they have to return to Horseshoe Bay every night? They are looking for  something different, they would be only too  pleased to take their chances on the added adventure of "who will we draw this time?" The  silly thing about this whole thing is that there  are hundreds of people who like it here-. They  want to come here and stay for a few days.  They won't mind making new friends.      .  And yet, albeit we want their money, we  have never given them the chance to spend it  here; We have never tried to make it even possible for them to stay and visit for a spell.  ' What if the idea does fall flat on its face?  At least we have tried. That is better than sitting back and saying, "I wonder if that would  have worked?" There is nothing to lose on this  deal. And everything to gain.  Let every person do his share. Let Mrs Smith  Brown and Black get in the mood for making  a few dollars easy. They will NOT have to do the  cooking. All they need' is a little space that will  not be used anyway.  The idea is sound. The 'idea will work. And  the Board of Trade is again to be congratulated.  These are the ideas that make Boards of Trade.  Only by virtue of their ingenuity can they thrive  and become strong. And it is only by virtue of  thriving Boards that territories such as the Sechelt Peninsula can attract tourists���our greatest  industry.  Let us all get behind the idea and guarantee  its success. We have had enough sour grapes and  kicking. Let's boost for a change.  Boost and watch the Peninsula grow.  ��� . . By Any Other Name  seven.     Richard  Sims,     Geoffrey  Smith.

The  little tots were dance perfect and  no mistakes made. Dr McColl in  his  usual  genial manner  was  a  very efficient  MC    assisted    by  Graham    Collison.   The   concessions   run   by  the  Wilson  Creek,  ladies' club and LA to the Legion  were soon sold out. Everyone enjoyed the day. All were tired but  happy.   The  evening   wound   up  with   an   open   air  dance  which  was so enjoyable it was carried  on till the  late    hours    in    the  Legion Hall to the music of Bob  Cooke,   Barry    Redman,     Frank  Postlewaithe  and Maurice Hem-  street.  And last but not least it was  nice to see Dorothy Morrison  (Mrs Bill) on the picnic grounds  up from Vancouver especially  for that day. We understand she  gets all the news through this  column so here's "Hello." Could  not get near enough to salute on  either cheek as we saw others  doing but just the same we were  glad to see Dorothy if only at a  distance. She did a lot of work  for the local P-TA and we miss  her   very   much.  We don't often rave about babies as we have been told we  know more about dogs but be that  a.   it may we saw such a love-  RATEPAYER'S   Associations,   always   a   bone   of  contention  in  any   community,  has come  up  for criticism in Gibsons.  It seems the Gibsons and District Ratepayer's  Association has just about become a bureaucracy,  that is a nrce word for dictatorship. By virtue of  a livewire president and publicity conscious directorate, the Ratepayer's Association has thrown  more weight around this area than it would rate.  And that is certainly not a criticism of the per-  sonell in the directorate.  This association has been the watchdog of  the Village Commission for some considerable  time now. But resolutions and suggestions which  face the commission in its ponderings are never  the will or thought of the majority of association  members. The many resolutions which spring to  the front, bearing the association tag, have been  the work qf a few only. Never has there been  more than 10 or 12 members attend a meeting  in the last three months. \  The association, and this is certainly not to  its credit, had to postpone three times the election  of officers as even a quorum had been lacking.  Much publicity has gone toward boosting the  Ratepayer's Association and when the veil is  lifted we find that only three or four men, not  excluding ten directors, are the backbone of the  association. It was ever thus.  Latest thoughts emanating, from the Ratepayer's Association are several amendments to  the 'Sub Division Bylaw' now awaiting its third  commission reading. When the source was finally  tracked down, this paper discovered the name  Ratepayer's Association was more or less a farce.  With more than 240 ratepayers in Gibsons  Village alone, and with many more in the district,  a meeting of their representatives which can only  muster ten or even less, as has happened at the  iast four meetings, can hardly be called representative. '     '    '  And, as is the way with all dictatorships  even benevolent ones, the rulp of the few is law.  This is a bad situation and should, be well  marked by all ratepayers in the area., ���L'-.���'  It is not right that recommendations should  continue to come from such a body when the  'group has barely had even a quorum during the  last three months. There must be something  radically wrong somewhere and we would suggest  it is hardly in the enthusiasm of the men now  heading the nebulous body.  Until the Ratepayer's Association becomes a  truly representative whole, working for and because of, the majority of ratepayers here, the  name will mean nothing. When resolutions do  reach the Commission or any other body, the  influence of such can only be based on the virility  of its members. Names mean nothing to people  who know.  The onus is entirely on the ratepayers themselves. They must get behind their directors and  make a really strongs unit, with a voice in democracy.  There is no room for bureaucracy here.  ly child recently we just had to  stop and. admire. We found out  that this little beauty is Joan  Waring living" with Daddy and  Mummy in the house recently  sold by the Erick's who have  moved away. We hope the new  comers will be happy here with  us in the village.  Remember the benefit dance  sponsored by Branch 140 Canadian Legion in  aid of fend for  .

NESTMAN  JOE FITCHETT is home again,  feeling a little- shaky but getting around. Good to know this.  Murdo Stewart still confined to  Shaughnessy, and very ill they  tell me. Kipp Hewitt of Granthams suffered a painful injury  when he crushed his- ankle, at  Minstrel Island. He is in a plaster cast for six weeks. Mrs J.  Conner and her son from Connors Midway Store took a trip  over to the Island accompanied  by Mr and Mrs Paulin from New  Zealand, Mrs Connor's- sister.  They will visit with Mrs Eva Oliver for two weeks. Mrs Connor  and her son returned after one  week's holiday.  I watched them unload mail  from the Machigonne- th|s morning, very interesting, as the ferry was so low down in the water  it was quite an undertaking.  Maybe it was that heavy mail  that weighed it down, not discounting the low tide at this  time. We got our mail early today. Real service say we. We '  hate to see the Union boats leave  us high and dry this way. No  matter how we may cuss them,  we still miss 'em. So we are very  happy to have them back. Board  of Trade of Gibsons right on their  toes, the. minute they heard we 1  were to be cut off . . .'and wired ���'  our Jimmy at Ottawa, who must  have come - through in the usual  way, for it was no sooner off,  than it was on again. -  They tell me our genial bank  manager   John   Theed,   will    be  leaving   us   July   7th,     going   to  Dawson.   Sorry   to   see   him 'go,  for' we certainly would have to  go  a long way to -find   a  more  helpful person than he has been  to many of us. We wish him the  very best of good luck in his new  venture, and trust the new man  will prove  every bit  as helpful  and congenial. They tell me Mrs  Mary Drew and Mrs Harry Ken-  nett will be in partnership, when  they open their  new high  class,  bakery    and    delicatessen     in  Mary's  store.   Wish  them  every  success in this new; venture. Visiting __6r^aXfew"iiay_r;were  Mrs-  Doris Skellett and babe. Back to  work after two weeks'  vacation  Frank  Bailey.

THE REGULAR monthly meeting of St Mary's Hospital Auxiliary was held at the Club House  on Friday, May 12th, with the  president, Mrs Bell, in the chair  and  19 members present.  It was learned by the members  that the Spring Tea had been  very successful, the net receipts  being $145.57, bringing the balance on hand to $1102.57. This  was highly gratifying and it was  decided to have an extra radiator installed in the Operating  Room and to purchase an Infrared Lamp which the Hospital  needs.  Arrangements were made to  hold handicraft meetings, where  handmade novelties would be  discussed, invented and copied  ready for the bazaar which will  be held in late' October or early  November.  Easy chairs for the patients  able to sit up was the next topic  for- consideration. The Auxiliary  hopes to have these in the Hospital in a short time.  r An old sea shanty.

Network  Monday, June 5th  SUBJECT:  s for the  MAY 23 was another beautiful  day which saw a crowd assembled on the grounds at Irvine's Landing. The day started  with the traditional crowning of  the queen. The Royal Party was  arrayed, in beautiful gowns and  carried lovely flower bouquets.  The Badminton Club did a fine  job of decorating the stand. Bob  Leith introduced retiring Queen  Nancy Reid, who made a very  nice speech and crowned our  new queen, Rosemary Phillips  of Kleindale. The attendants were  Marie Higgins, Beverly Harper,  Doloris Brown, Bernice Duncan,  Bernice Hansen and young Miss  C. Donnelly. Master L. Nichols  was   crown   bearer.  Johnny Haddock got things  off a to a flying start with the  tiny tots racing and from then  on through the sack races and  relay events until the Tug o'  War, between the fishermen and  the loggers���won by the fishermen���Johnny, helped by the  teachers, and Bob Leith, kept  the ball rolling.  The dance at night culminated  the wonderful day. The music  from Gibsons was grand and with  plenty of good things to eat plus  the enthusiastic work of all the  clubs who helped make it such  an outstanding day, the celebration was  a complete success.  Good advice corner. "It's the  fresh egg that gets slapped in  the pan."  Mr and Mrs Royal Murdock  will celebrate their silver wedding anniversary on June 12. We  hope they will see many more  anniversaries.  Another wedding which will  incite local interest will be the  middle aisling of Evelyn Wright,  one time school teacher here,  and Billie- Murdock. They are  slated to lower the boom sometime this fall.  New government floats for  Madeira Park are now completed at Halfmoon Bay and only  await the inspection of Marine  Inspector H. McColl before being brought here.  An important addition to Madeira's community will be the  new Forestry Department Station. An acre of land has been  purchased from Col. E. S. Johnstone. The site is situated between the present government  floats and the E. S. Johnstone  float. The station will be two  storied and of Dutch Colonial  style. .The crew will arrive  shortly.

FART OF  ALLOWANCE CHEQUES  Make This Down Payment on a Full Education  There are many ways of giving children a worthwhile start in  life. Home training counts for a lot, so do good food and clothing.  And there's the great advantage of a well-balanced education.  Most parents have probably discussed these matters often  enough, just as they've discussed the best ways of employing the  monthly Family Allowance Cheques. And they've considered the  long-term uses of these cheques���saving them for High School and  College days.  Even if you can't see your way to set aside the whole cheque  each month, why not save a portion of it for this purpose? Open a  special savings account at the Bank of Montreal, and put away your  Dollars for Education regularly each month. By the time your family  needs them, they'll have added up���with interest���to a sizable sum.  Your youngsters will appreciate this great help forward on the road  to success.  When you receive your next cheque, drop into your local branch  of the B of M to cash it and put some dollars aside. John Theed,  manager, warmly invites you to open a savings account for this best  of purposes.. advt.  p*��  THANKS  We wish to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to the Canadian Legion, Pender Harbour, and  friends who were so kind and helpful during the illness and bereavement in the passing of our dear husband and father.

Mrs  Hicks, who is absenting herself  from the Glee Club practices, has  a slight throat ailment, but is improving. By the way, there seems  to be quite a number of our residents complaining of throat  trouble. My guess is that it's  "Dustitis" caused by traffic on  our beautiful roads.

Not that  May menus are very different  from any other season, but a  lighter touch is appropriate for  the first warm days, and a festive note is in keeping with this  merry month. After all it comes  only once a year, and that is why  we should make the best of it.  Early fruits offer their delicious-  ly tart flavor for use in a score  of ways and at comparatively  low cost. Rhubarb, pineapple and  soon there will be strawberries  ��� refreshing to the palate and a  tonic to the system. Crisp greens  and fresh colorful vegetables  suggest new combinations for the  salad bowl. The old stand-bys,  meat, fish, eggs, cheese and  many other products ��� can be  given novelty by different methods of preparation and some not-  so-usual form of service. Of  course I know it's easy to get in  a rut, but May is a good time to  get out of it, and as this is the  end of May ��� well almost, let's  get out of the rut now by trying a new dish once a week for  awhile.

Melt the butter,  add the flour and stir until well  blended. Add the liquid gradually while stirring constantly  and cook until thickened. Continue cooking until there is no  taste of raw flour, then add the  drained vegetables. Season to  taste' and turn into a buttered  casserole.

With more than 20 years' experience in the restaurant business, the new operators are well  qualified to start what is actually an experiment for the  steamship  company.

With service by the Lady Alexandra in conjunction with its  Bowen Island schedules, this  area has been assured of at least  approximately the same service  as that supplied by the Lady  Rose.  According to information from  the Union Steamship Company,  the new schedule will hold for  summer months only. It is expected further consideration will  have to be' given to the Howe  Sound schedules at a later date.  The MV Machigonne filled in  as mail carrier while the gap in  Union runs was filled.  This will now assure adequate  summer visitor service. The new  schedule is to be found elsewhere  in this paper.  Liberals Back  Gibsons B.Q.T.  SECHELT   ���  This   community's--.  Liberal Association, at an executive meeting on Tuesday, decided to endorse the move made  by Gibsons Board of Trade in  urging James Sinclair, MP, to  intervene on behalf of curtailment of boat service here.  Andrew Johnston, unit president, disclosed the corroboration  and scored lessening' of transport  to any point on the Peninsula as  being a retrograde step and one  which would be bound to influence the whole territory.  "It is up to us all," he said, "to  see that transportation is kept to  as high a level as is computable  with sound business. Just because it is Gibsons that sent the  original telegram hardly- means?  that it cannot affect us. It is  every organization's business to  see that we step ahead and not  backward."
