BILL SUTHERLAND  Editor, The Coast News  IT WAS? friend Bill Peiper at the  . end of the phone. "Come on  iip to Garden Bay," says he.  "When you get to the wharf- we  will have somebody there to look  after you." So, we arrived. The  government's fisheries patrol  boat, the one with young Wilf  Nestman, was tied up to the dock.  But we never noticed any�� undue  activity. I suggested that probably the reason there was no one  there to* greet us was because  the captain was down deep in his  duffle bag getting the long reds  out so they could hang it on the  taffrail or stove pipe or wherever  they, hang those weird flags  when visitors clamber and slither  on board.  In other words no Bill Peiper,  but we did run into Jeff Brewster who bought us a cup of tea  and so we pinned back the name  Pender Harbour on the.map from  which we had just previously  torn it.  Reg Spicer gave us an earful  about no water at Madeira Park  School. Seems, friend Reg is  aggona set on them thar steps  come harvest startin' an' see that  them' teachers don't never have  to pack no more water so- they  can flush the ChicNSales.  What tickled me was a picture  of Norman Hough, hiring a young  thing just fresh out? of Normal  and home, and telling her that  the galvanized buckets are for  packing-water so the modern  conveniences can operate.  Reg claims that's a fact. No  one on the Board of Trade denied  it either.  Bob Telford in New  Trade Board Prexy  GIBSONS���Robert   Telford,   postmaster   and   old   timer   here,  was elected president of the Board of Trade at a general  meeting in the Church Hall, Monday. .  Mrs Win Stewart was elected vice president while James  Drummond was returned as secretary.  Other officers'are: Mrs Marge Leslie, Wi Sutherland, R. C.  Richardson, Dr H. C. Anderson, G. W. Anderson, A. E. Ritchey  Cliff Gray, Mrs J. Wardil, Chris Jorgenson and J. P. Veitch.  ��� : :         Installation of the new officers  New Dentist  Foi* Schools  GIBSONS���School children ;here  may soon get periodical inspection  and  repairs   done   to   their  dentures.  Following prolonged negotiations by the school board, it is  believed plans are now near  completion whereby a dentist  will visit the schools on this' peninsula! on a proper schedule. The  last survey showed more than  500 children were in need of  teeth repairs.  The new dentist, who is expected to arrive soon, has been ap-  will be made at <a supper meeting  in English Tea Rooms, July 4.  It was pointed out by the committee in- charge that tickets for  this will be sold until July 1 only. Reservations will not be accepted   following  that  date.  Representative  For Gambier  GAMBIER ISLAND���Ratepayers  from this island have applied  for inclusion on the representative slate for School Board District 46.  According to word from Col.  J. N. Burnett, ��� inspector of  schools, ratepayers will be given  yw*y  ,J. ���".���������-\*-~:&?...<���:    -X> ^sp-%;'V -,  x On-the way home we fan into  a cross section of nature in the  rough.  First it was a mother grouse;  complete with outstretched neck,  gimpy leg and broken wing. She  was certainly suffering. '.. Even  had herself the most anguished  cry you ever heard. But Ishe  couldn't fool us. We saw the  little brown ball of fluff trying  to climb the road bank. While  wexwatched that game great  mother defending ��� her chick we '  thouht back several years ago  and recalled seeing the same  thing going on every day all  '��� around where we used to live.  -The thought just struck. How  did- this grouse in the Sechelt  peninsula . know enough to imitate perfectly a grouse doing exactly the same thing under the  same circumstances only 20 years  before and more than 700 miles  away?  Does someone wantc' to speak  up and mutter something about  instinct We know that, but how  come?  Next was  a two-pointer buck  with velvet still on his horns; He  gave us a queer look arid headed  down the road just ahead of the .  car.    Stepping the buggy up to  30  never  even caused it to lay  ba'ck its  ears.    It stayed  ahead  until it came to a place it liked .  and-with  one huge spring was ,  into the undergrowth arid away.  A little 'rabbit decided to investigate the car lights next. But  only for a very few. seconds. It  came onto the road with that  delayed rear ' end.. * action and  squatted for a small', portion of a  minute. All of a sudden it de- ,  . cided to change location. The  last %e saw of it .was where the  hind-end was having no trouble  keeping up with the front.  We hadn't gone very far when  - Mr. Raccoon decided to give us  a i cheeky once over lightly. It  never even hurried as disdainfully it seemed to turn and lope  into the brush.  XThere was only one other  ��� pretty thing we. saw that .trip and ,.  that j was Doreen Blomgren from  Roberts Creek. She does a right  smart>job of washing windows.  Like George Formby she probably sees plenty and says nothing. :x  Then we ran into "Little Lamb  Renton" and that spoiled it.  ^proved by the college of dental an opportunity to select a.repre-  ^rgi��o1_��''irraxShool"authorities?' s^t^tive.

Franske Family Takes  Over Trading Post  DAVIS BAY���The Trading  Post, well  known  throughout this'  area has been sold.  Victor Franske recently bought the well known landmark  from Mr and Mrs Ron Whitaker. The new owner, who wishes  to be known as Vic, formerly operated a store on Stewart Island.  He, his wife and two children will reside in the cottage adjacent  to the store.  The Whitakers will remain in  the Bay area. It is believed Mr  Whitaker is interested in construction of a tourist camp in  property adjoining the Whitaker  home. Plans have already been  laid for a "Motel" type. It is  expected the first block will be  of a ten unit design with building starting immediately following the fire season ending.  Mr Whitaker, a former hotel  man, who had previously operat*  ed in Sechelt, is one'' of the big  boosters of this peninsula in regard to tourist traffic.  X  GIBSONS���Clue to an early start on construction of a small  Boat Harbour for this area  may be  in a  letter  received  from the District Engineer by the Board of Trade. "  : Accompanying the letter was a  plan of the proposed harbor and  a rock breakwater 450 feet long.  The harbor will be dredged west  of the present wharf and will be  of a 'winged' nature, each individual dock butting onto a  main tide-float, 280 feet long.  The main dock or 'stem' from  which the individual berthing  ways will lead will stretch along  approximately 1000 feet from offshore at points roughly between  Corlett's Apartments and Charles  Malcolm's Marine yards.  According to the proposal more  than 128 boats can berth therein. Floats will be four feet high,  and 12 feet wide.  ��� In the letter to the Board of  Trade, and handed for action to  the Trades and Industry Committee, were requests from Mr  Morton, for figures as to the  number and value of fishing  craft, the approximate value of  fish caught and other related information as to the commercial  necessity for this proposed harbor.  Mr Morton went on to say, "It  is presumed that protection for  small boats is required in the late  fall and winter and that the commercial necessity would probably cover those seasons of the  year."   Commenting    on     the.   letter,  "James"': Veitch,X^haiirnan of the  committee charged with handling the Board's portion of the  promotion, said he already had  all the figures necessary. "These  are facts we correlated for a previous survey. We will get them  to Mr Morton at the earliest possible moment. The picture looks  Telford Heads  Cemetery Board  GIBSONS ��� Robert Telford was  elected president of the Seaview Cemetery Board at the general meeting,  Tuesday.  Other officers are, vice-president, R. Macnicol; secretary-treasurer, Bert Cole; assistant secretary, Mrs Dave Doanaldson; Mrs  E. Nestman, T. Humphries, H.  King and W. Graham are directors.. ......'....  Owing to Seaview being the  only available cemetery in the  peninsula the board decided to  withhold formerly proposed restrictions. Half an acre, of adjoining land will be cleared with  available funds. Following this,  it was decided to try and raise  more money from the areas laying west and served by the cemetery.  A committee headed    by    Mr  Fish Derby  Now Open  GIBSONS ��� Swings and teeter  totters are now in action in the  municipal park.  Thanks to the Kinsmen Club,  who donated the labor and material which went into construction of these much needed playthings, children now can romp  in comparative safety. A guard  rail will be built along the top  of the retaining wall according to  club president Reg Godfrey.  The club wishes it known that  today, Monday, is the start of the  ten-week fishing derby. Weighing in for the weekly prize of $10  can be made at Sewell's, or Wind  and Tide Boat Rentals, Granthams, or De Luxe Fishing, Gibsons. It will be necessary to produce a derby ticket with each  separate weigh in. These must  be uncancelled. Cancelled' tickets can be held until final draw  when they are elegible for the  main prize of $100.

"An attempt will be made to  contact the Fishermen's Union in  order to obtain all pertinent information,"  Mr  Veitch said.  Kinsmen Plan  T.B. Seal Drive  GIBSONS���Plans   are  now  well  under way for  distribution of  TB Seals.  Following representations from  Vancouver headquarters of the  drive, the Kinsmen Club volunteered to sponsor the important  canvass. Letters will be sent to  each householder in the time  honored manner prescribed by  custom.  partially responsible for the. idea  of getting a bus load of stampede  enthusiasts, reports the trip has  been called off.  "There were several interested  in the idea," he said, "but not  enough to pay for the trip. We  are sorry in having to call it off  but there was just not enough  takers."  Confirmation at  Anglican Church  SIR FRANCIS Heathcote, archbishop of New Westminster,  officiated at the ceremony of  confirmation, at St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church, Sunday  morning at Gibsons.  Ten new members were confirmed, and the church was filled  to capacity" to witness the impressive ceremony.  Rev. V. Oswald assisted.

Telford with Mr Macnicol. and  Mr Cole will undertake-to clear  the ground. Unless voluntary assistance by means of funds is  forthcoming it was intimated the  cost of space would have to be  raised. The increase may be levied only on those outside of Gibsons and Roberts Creek area.  The board also passed the ruling that markers in the new portion of the cemetery will be of  uniform, flat stones or plaques.  GIBSONS ��� District   46.   School  Board made first move toward  actual construction of , schools  when it authorized an application  be made to the Department of  Education for permission to proceed with working drawings,  plans and specifications. If and  when granted, H. Cullerne, architect, will be advised to proceed  with construction following receipt of tenders to be called later.  Roberts Creek school will have  priority in construction according to board minutes.  Auditor B. W. M. Bone, 789  West Pender Street, Vancouver,  has been appointed auditor of  accounts. This follows suggestion from the Department of Education urging the move for every  school board in the province.

Present water facilities will be  slightly enlarged pending a thorough rejuvenation of both systems following construction of  the proposed school.  A guide for handling of future  pensioner application for reduction in taxes will be drawn up  by a special committee, yet to be  announced. It is expected that a  "blue print" of procedure will  facilitate what may be the first  rush of applications.  ,    -.0 3*  ttcotcao&i DAVIS BAY  By  Robbie  I   TOOK   a   stroll  down  by   the  wharf to see how the breakwater was shaping up. It's coming along nicely, and according  to our friend, Kynock, the bossy  man, it is to be completed by the  end of this week. It is to be  about 80 feet long.  News of the boats giving Wilson Creek a miss for three or  four weeks, came as a bit of a  shock. One would think the men  could wrap up their tools, clear  the decks, and save a dollar  ��� twenty-five taxi fare, which is  now added to the already exorbitant sum of three fifteen for  passenger  fare  from Vancouver.  Met Mr. Pilling from Gibsons,  who related the following. He  took his boat out to do a little  fishing, and, like everybody else,  from Gibsons, hooked a fish, the  other guy netted it from his own  boat and by mutual consent, the  stranger had the fish for supper.  During the week Jack Whittaker and your, humble, took  several pictures of the miniature  dust storm, which cccurs every  time an automobile passes up or  down the road at Davis Bay. The  upshot of this is the resolution  passed at our community meeting, that the secretary be instructed to drop a line to the  Hon. minister of health, also to  the roads and public works departments as well as a copy of  each to friend Mclntyre the  M.L.A. We await the outcome  with crossed fingers and a handkerchief over our mouths, as a  protection  against   "dustitis."  Two of our recent invalids  have recovered sufficienly well  to be able to take a long trip, and  when this issue comes' on the  streets, Mrs. F. Mutter and Mrs.  F. Blower will be well on their  way to California, they expect  to be away for several weeks.  The entertainment committee  has drawn up plans for a sports  day for the children of Wilson  Creek. Running, swimming and  sack races, as well as a pillow  fight, ���will be dished up. The  , ladies will try their luck at potato and egg and spoon, the men  will climb the greasy pole. Ice  cream and pop will be given to  each child" and it is hoped the  ladies will make a basket picnic  of this first annual sports day for  the W.C.C.C. in.August.  The Ladies' Glee Club are folding up for the months of July  and August, and will recommence  early in September.  If you are acquainted with the  Whipple family, the next time  you meet any of them you had  better start handshaking, 'coz  they are leaving the district, Mrs.  W. has decided to go with her  family to the camp at which her  husband is working. Well good  luck friends.  The Eric Jones's have returned  to Vancouver and Shaughnessy  hospital where thev both work  for the D.V.A. But Eric has  threatened to come .back in September, that reminds me, he'll  be in time for the salmon derby  at Davis Bay, and by the wav  George Wright still has lots of  herring strips for you fishermen.

Among the many summer  visitors to these parts is Mrs.  Hector Macleod who has now  taken possession * of her newly  erected residence on the Bay  road. Mrs. Mac intends to stay  for best part of the summer at  least.  We had practically closed our  sick bay, took the sheets to the  laundry   and     pulled   down   the  blinds, when news cm��. tbat 0"**.  friend, Mrs. Teddy Cole, slipped  and     fell     while    shopping     at   ���  Sechelt.

John  Theed Sr, father of John Theed.  former Bank of Montreal manager here. Mr Theed will be buried in his former home town,  Summerland. His son, Board of  Trade president, is completing  transfer plans following his appointment to Dawson City.  YOUNG Bill Pye, speaking at the recent graduation ceremonies in the High School, paid a  fellow basketball team member one of the finest  compliments to which it has been our good luck  to listen.  Speaking about Denis Lowe, Team Captain  Pye remarked that Denis had a low score primarily because, "he was always willing to pass the  ball. He never wanted to hog it. Even under the  - net, when he would have a reasonably fair chance  of scoring, he would pass the ball to assure his  team of a better scoring chance.  We have never met the Mr Lowe in question  but we would deem it an honor. So many of us  are tardy at passing the ball. Far rather would  we hog it and pass the buck instead.  This young man, we presume he is at least  a partial product of the Sechelt Peninsula in that  he got some training here, has started on the  right road to success. He is willing to look out for  his team's effort. He is considerate and a sportsman..  . We checked, following the graduation exercises, on this young man. We checked with his  severest critics���his fellow pupils. We spoke to  four and each and every one agreed with Bill Pye.  We are glad there has been such a boy in our  midst. He must have been an example to others  in his sporting manner. If such is the case we are  better off for having him with us.  In his scholastic achievements we are not  even remotely interested. The criterion of the  world market which he will meet in later years  will judge harshly enough with Mr Lowe. We are  just pleased to hear that Bill Pye, who rates highly for his own unselfish credit giving, felt it imperative that everyone should know that Denis  Lowe is a good sport.  We heartily echo the words. There are too  few good sports in our midst, it is a pleasure to  know we can still raise them. There is hope for  us yet. *  CITY SLICKERS  Every summer hundreds of  "city slickers" come out of the  bush sporting a glorious coat of  poison ivy contamination. This  irritating and unslightly affliction is easily avoided. Poison  ivy beat's a distinctive, notched  leaf that any novice can learn to  recognize. It grows in patches  that only the most careless should  fail to notice. This is one form  of botany every woodsman needs  to know.  SECHELT  By "ARIES"  SECRETARY G. Kynoch brought  to the Liberal meeting a smirk  almost   a   mile  wide;   he   looked  like the proverbial cat which had  swallowed    the    canary    as    he  handed   a   telegram   to  president  Andy Johnston   from  Batt   Maclntyre, MLA, stating that a double   flush   coat   surface   of   road  from   Sechelt   to   Wilson     Creek  had been promised by  the Minister   of Public    Works.     James  Sinclair, MP, was at the meeting  and   spoke   briefly.     He   had   to  leave  as he wanted a few minutes  with   his   family   at   Gower  Point and was flying to Vancouver later on in the evening. We  thought he looked very tired. We  June 30.

Morris, who has an enviable record of organizing in Europe, especially Germany. He spoke at  some length on the different political groups in that country and  gave a very comprehensive summary of the army of occupation  and the difficulties which they  had to overcome.

Facts About  Advertising  ADVERTISING     seerrs     to     be  taken for granted and is greatly misunderstood by large numbers of people. This is understandable but it is lamentable  that there is not a keener public  awareness of advertising's function in our society.  Advertising is the main support of our free press (a convincing majority of Canadians were  revealed by a recent Gallup Poll  to believe that advertising lends  interest to our newspapers and  magazines). ���  Advertising has most effectively contributed to the widening  of our political and economic  literacy.  Consumer advertising helps to  reduce production cost by multiplying production and increasing  manufacturing economies. It  also reduces selling costs. In  reaching prospects, in arousing  interest and in creating and  maintaining demand, its cost, as  a selling instrument, is only a  fraction of what otherwise would  be entailed.  Competition dictates that both  these savings, in selling costs and  in production costs, be passed on  to the consumer.  Consumer advertising has furthered the expansion of our economy. It helps create, sustain and  extend employment by developing and widening the demand for  the products of industry. High-  level employment, of. course,  means high-level purchasing  power.  Advertising's universal use in  the distribution of goods and services testifies to its efficiency. It  is significant that with all its ingenuity, modern business has developed no better sales promotion alternative.  Some critics of advertising reveal little grasp of its varied economic functions. Others have  shown unfamiliarity with popular tastes or a lack of understanding of the consumer's decisive  and eternal power to pass judgment on advertising by the simple switch of his patronage.  In the preservation of freedom  of choice, advertising is thus a  major factor. And freedom of  choice is a sure safeguard against  advertising's use in any manner  inimical to the public interest.

DON'T SELL YOUR BONDS IF  YOU NEED CASH QUICKLY ^_  Consult- the B of M About a Low-Cost Personal Loan  MOST PEOPLE, who save with success, save with    a    definite  purpose   in   mind.   They're  thinking   about   security  and  , plans for the future���protection for their family, education for  their children, a home of their own.  There should never be any need to sacrifice such plans in  an emergency. No contractor would get a-house built if he kept  taking away pieces to do repair jobs elsewhere. You may need  cash quickly, but, if you have some bonds, that you've saved  over the years, hang on to them. They can prove very hard to  replace.  It's wiser to drop into your local branch of "My Bank",  "and talk the matter over with T. B. Larson; the manager. You  can borrow ot the B. of M against your bonds, and at a rate appreciably lower than for a loan without such security. The  money can be repaid in easy instalments, and the interest on  your bonds will be credited to your account in the meanwhile.  In fact, the interest on the bonds very nearly pays for the  interest on the loan. Advt.

Ritchey  will have their hands full when  they try to fill teacher vacancies  for the coming term.  Among those who have handed in their resignation are: Ray  Elliott, principal of the Gibsons  Elementary School; Ian Mortimer, Kliendale; Mrs; M. Hill,  Britain River; Mrs. Flora Morton,  Deserted Bay; Mrs. Freda Heron,  East Roberts Creek; and Mrs.  Muriel Barclay, Gibsons Elementary.  Teachers Quit      KEjSSf  PETITION from group of 685  ratepayers asking council to  submit a resolution to Victoria  accepting them into the village,  was approved by the council, and  on a motion of Commissioner E.  Nestman, resolution accompanying the petition will be forwarded to Victoria.* This the first  step once more in reopening the  very contentious issue of amalgamation.  By-law re subdivision plans of  the future was amended to read  "lots no smaller than 5000 feet  in area will be approved." This  corrects size of lots in original  by-law, third reading given last  night, and at meeting on July 5  by-law will be given approval.  Petition from G. Boucher of  686 lot 2, asking for water for his  area, where he is installing pipes  to serve this block, was granted,  and when project completed  water will be provided for them.  Sprinkling rules are going to  be enforced, and as much as commissioners are reluctant to take  this step, there seems to be no  alternative.  Hqses running day and night  are ' definitely unfair to household users of water, many people  do not realize that folks on the  higher levels' are actually deprived, of water while some one  running a hose steady a little  further down the hill.  There is plenty of water but  with water running indiscriminately sorne are being penalized  so that others may have their  beawtiful garden, and village  fathers feel that this must be  stopped in fairness to everyone.  On a petition from the Legion  regarding the extra large water  bill for past six months, matter  given very sympathetic hearing,  and rebate given them on part of  bill. It was felt that this would  be remedied in the future by a  thorough overhauling of plumbing and other water systems in  the building.

QwizIVo. 2  How much does it cost  per dozen to advertise the  well-known brands of  oranges? Is it 2��? 3tf  51 a dozen?  A NORMAL HABIT  Children are often' criticized���  and sometimes disciplined���for  fidgeting, but doctors point out  that small movements are normal  in children and that suppression  of these natural movements is  one of the important" causes of  fatigue and inattention, particularly in school children. Youngsters need to move about a bit in  order to stay relaxed and comfortable.  AUSWCr? It costs less than %i a  / dozen to advertise the big-name brands of  oranges.  That's only half the story. Advertising  lowers your cost two ways:  Cuts the selling costs* And by helping mak*  mass production possible, lowers ihe production costs, too.  So advertising tsaves you many times that  yit per dozen.  "Published by This Newspaper to Help Foster a Belter Understand  ing of Advertising's Function in Our Society."  ATTENTION!
