Vol. 4 ��� No.-S*/^g^  -4-Cx  Gibsons,  B. C.  Monday, July 24, 19S0  5c per copy, $2.00 per year, by mail  AND   ORGAN   music,   like   the  notes    from    some    fairyland,  ��� mingled with the song of birds  darting from branch to branch  among the tall pines, while the  , man, bent and tired, lifted his  head in amazement as his ears  picked up the beautiful sounds.  Wonder and a half fear lurked  I at .the corners of his grim mouth  and twitched his eyes.   A strange  I? excitement was in his heart as he  . braced     himself.       Slowly,     he  ' straightened to a gaunt six feet.  | Gnarled    hands   grasped  at  the  i stick he had been using as a cane  tp help him fight his way through  the    tangled    underbrush.      His  ; mind flashed  back to  when  he  ! had  last  heard   sounds   such   as  ' those faintly coming through the  trees.  ..  ;     So faint were they and so sub-  ��� ject to vagaries of the slightest  . breeze, there were times when  ' he shook his head' in despair. He  knew music was out. of this  i world. No organ could be here in  b the woods in which for a hun-  \ dred miles, he had been walking,  (sometimes- staggering, sometimes  ; half running.  ] It had been weeks ago���or was  I- it years���since he had left the  ; cruising party to investigate the  > dark green patch of tree tops  I across the gulley. That had been  the last he could remember.  The gulley was the thing, he  thought.    That  must have been  |\the cause of is being lost. The  lump   on   his head   had   turned  Ishim completely rouhd and he had  ���been    tramping    in: the    wrong  5 direction these six days.  ^X.His'-he'ad nodded as if agreeing  a wiffi.Ahiikself. -��� H-i^.i.,bear.d. ;=f ,was->  i^niatted' with burs and soaked  [with blood from face cuts-receiv-  ied while 'tumbling through the  v devil club, in his desperate ad-  j venture to freedom, while his  ' eyes were a clue to his hear  I craze.  f His eyes were the things that  | caught and held attention. As he  , shook his head in desperation, a  ! cackle of derision escaped from  his thin,  gashlike lips.    But his  ��� eves burned from an indomit-  [ able willpower. They were the  j light  that  shone   from   an   iron  will, one knew this man would  go until he dropped, there he  would stay, and leaves would  fall and shroud him in their folds  o*f many.  Savagely he swiped at the wild  blackberry vine's tangling his  legs.-  "Music," he muttered in derision. "Music. Ha, ha, ha, ha.  Must be it's the . gates them-  1 selves." His teeth bared as he  grinned a hard> reckless grin.  "Open up, gates. Play your  music, damn ye." His hand, a  clawed, big knuckled mass of  bones and thin skin reached up  and scratched at his cheek in a  wondering vagueness. His words  trailed off into the. still qf the  woods. It seemed to the man  that even the birds had stopped  their cheering so they could  watch his departure into the unknown.  For a moment the big, tangled  mass that was his head, raised in  defiance of the birds and the  trees and the quiet of the evergreens and the still of the air. To  him it seemed as if everything  was held in susnense, in waiting  for his final giving in.  Again the cackle. escaped him.  This time there was no derision,  only a faint note of acceptance,  a memory only of that recklessness that had made him a'man  among men. The words came  slow and low. He let long  ���pauses grow between them.  "If that's the way ... she's  gonna . . . be . . . then ... so  be. . . it .. . . mister.  Like a huge bundle of rag and  dirt ahd blood and matted hair,  the man slowly sagged into the  mat of moss at his feet. The stick  he had used as a support still  remained upright as the bodv  seemed to sink in quiet rest, until  he lay crumpled yet comfortable  First Move Made in  Plan for Waterworks  GIBSONS���First reading of a $7000 Water Bylaw was read at  a special meeting of the Village Commission, Weednesday.  The extra meeting was held in order to speed up passage  of the bylaw to assure work being done on the penstock and  dam, sometime this fall. Headwaters of the water supply is on  property recently bought by the village from the Cannery Association.  Approval of the project which will include steel weld pipe  replacing the present decadent wooden pipe was given at last  meeting of the council.  A letter from B. C. Bracewell, inspector of municipalities,  acknowledging receipt of a petition signed by residents of  District 685 and 686, accompanied by a concurring letter from  the commission, was read.  It was accepted without comment.  This village will be without the services of an undertaker  and water commissioner in the absence of Wally Graham on  an emergency trip to Calgary, according to advice received at  the meeting.  It is believed Mr Graham will be away for approximately  one week.  Huge Sign to Assure  Visitors of Welcome  ;c;oip--:**..  GIBSONS���A  'Welcome  to  Gibsons'  sign  will   be  erected  at  the north end of the wharf within a few weeks acco'rding  to James* Veitch, charged, with Chris Jorgensen by the Board  of Trade with erecting the huge poster.  Veitch  reported   the  sign  $300 Fine for  John Harrison  ROBERTS CREEK ��� John William Harrison, taxi driver, was  fined $300 and $17.20 costs when  he appeared on a charge of bootlegging before .Magistrate Sydney  McKay, July 14.  Staff Sergeant Hooker, B.C.  Provincial Police, prosecuted.  The accused was represented by  Vancouver lawyer B. H. Palitti.  "No" to Local  License Office  GIBSONS ��� Car owners in. this  village and. immediate surrounding area will still have to  get their vehicle licenses in  Sechelt or ��� send by mail to Victoria for them.  This information was received  from provincial police headquarters in Victoria, by the village  commission following a request  from that group that licenses be  issued from the local police  office.  The official letter suggested  the mails were of easy access and-  quite  convenient.  looking by the roots of a huge  Douglas Fir.  He never heard the organ  music start again, or did he? A  half smile seemed to hint at a  parting in the dirty beard. And  the music swelled as the wind  veered until it was clear and  strong, before drifting with vagary of the breeze into nothing to  return yet once again.  The announcer's words went  unheard. "This is the Sunday  Music Program, sponsored for  your enjoyment by the Gibsons  Kinsman Club. We hope you  have enjoyed them and we hope  they; have brought some small  solace to someone within sound  of our voice. Good night and  God Bless You."  Mr.  had to wait for the pouring of  concrete at Sunset Hardware  Store prior to placing the standards. Poles have already been  cut and erection assured by A. E.  Ritchey who will lend the euip-  ment necessary for raising the  sign.  The newly formed housing  committee has "more than 30  rooms available for tourists, via  a booth to be erected in the  Merry Ern Cafe," according to  v Mrs. Alice Veitch, co-chairman  with Mrs. Win Stewart of the  committee, reporting to an executive meeting of the Board of  Trade.  Directional signs will be placed  on the wharf guiding visitors to  where they may rent sleeping accommodation.  Central control will be under  the Board of Trade. The plan  grew from the 10,000 colored  folders now being distributed  throughout the western States  and in Vancouver. It is believed  the rooming directory will take  the place of a hotel, in providing  for sport fishermen tourists.  A display, highlighting the  folders, will be held at the central bus depot in Vancouver, according to Pacific Stages publicity director Earl Campbell.  Distribution is. being made  through the Vancouver Tourist  Bureau. . Several hundred will be  circulated, by publicity committee  member C. G. Ballentine during  the international boat races now  under way.  Mrs Hewei is  Bowen Teacher  GRANTHAMS  LANDING���Mrs.  Pauline Hewet received appointment to Division 2, Bowen  Island Elementary School, according to a report from the  school board.  Mrs. Hewet is well known in  the community due to.her interest in communal affairs and in  church work.  GIBSONS���This   Peninsula   may  soon   be   connected   to  Vancouver  by  means of  a  car   ferry,  presumably  operating  from Horseshoe Bay to here.  First concrete hint of the much discussed ferry���acknowledged by businessmen from Pender Harbour to Port  Mellon, as being the first real step toward the emancipation  of this area���came when James Veitch, reporting to the Gibsons Board of Trade, assured that moves have been made by  the Gibson Brothers, owners of Sea   Bus Lines.  "I have it on the very best of  authority that the owners of Sea  Bus Lines have already inspected  at least two ships with a view to  converting to a car ferry," he  said. "Both ships looked at were  not satisfactory, but the fact they  were looked at with the ferry in  view is gratifying."  In his report, Mr. Veitch lauded the Gibson family group for .  their fine efforts on behalf of  providing a service to Gibsons  with the M.V. Machigonne, "They  have always tried to play ball  with us here," the trades and industry committee chairman announced.  It may be recalled that B. M.  Maclntyre, M.L.A., while on tour  here, spoke of the imminence of  a car ferry. Mr. Maclntyre predicted a car ferry would be in  operation within a few years. He  remarked that the Gibson brothers unit would be against any  inauguration of a ferry making  its run end at Horseshoe Bay.  This gave rise to the belief that  the Machigonne owners were interested in providing the service.  In an off the record talk, later,  _Mr^M.acIntyre pointed out there  were several companies interested in startin the much talked and  hoDed for operation. Mr. Veitch's  reference has been the first time  that any concrete reference has  been made where names have  been used and places named.  Reliable reports have it that  "quite probably there will be a  car ferry in operation within two  years."  From another source comes the  information that still another  company has thoueht of the plan  but financial difficulties have  arisen which vail delay that particular proposal.  It is known that overtures  have been made to Victoria with  a view to getting a franchise  through the Public Utilities Commission. This would imply that  Horseshoe Bay would be a terminus rather than Vancouver as  it is thought only under ��� condition of acting as a "link" in a  highway can the Public Utilities  Commission enter into the picture.  A ferry operating directly to  Vancouver would come under  federal control.  Groves Wins  Fish Prize  GIBSONS ��� First prize in the  Kinsman salmon derby weekly  contest went' to local man D. W.  Groves, who entered a 19%  pound spring salmon.  Mr. Groves is the third winner  of the ten Weekly prize contest,  sponsored by the local club in aid  of its general fund for aiding  children. The winning fish was  weighed in at the De Luxe Fishing Float on July 13. It was  caught on a flasher and strip.  Club committee chairman  George Hill points out that all  entries must be accompanied by  a 50 cent Salmon, Derby Contest  ticket available from any Kinsman or at the De Luxe or Wind  and Tide Fishing Floats.  It is expected that Sewell's  Fishing Float will be in operation  at Salmon Rock within a few  days.  Gambier Taxi  For Tourists  GAMBIER ISAND ���This island  is reaching out for tourists and  visitors, and has inaugurated a  new, fast ferry service every  Saturday evening to assure getting at least part of the great  travelling dollar.  Sponsored by Gambier Ratepayers and assured by Howe  Sound Ferries, the new service  will leave Horseshoe Bay at 8  p.m. and return leaving Gambier  Harbour at 12 r>.m.  The advertising points out that  dancing and the world's finest  scenery can be had only 40 minutes from Horseshoe Bay. "Reasonable rates will assure us  getting visitors here to look over  our tremendous natural assets,"  said a local spokesman. "These  trips will serve summer visitors  in a manner never before done.  It will certainly assure us of a  finer contact with the mainland."  Oldtimer is Nostalgic  When He Views dibsons  GIBSONS ��� Among the many  letters which weekly finds its  way into the Coast News office  was the following interesting  epistle from one of the real old-  timers of this community. We  thought it of sufficient nostalgic  importance that we print it as is.  Tuesday, July 11, was a day  of surprises for me when I visited Gibsons and way points and  tried to get my bearings of dear  days gone by.  You see, I lived and worked in  a clam cannery at Smith's Landing 'way back in 1908-9 when my  father, Charles Boardman, CPR  pioneer, started a clam cannery.  My brother Sid and I were taken  out of school to help mother and  dad in the cannery adventure,  doing our school work at night by  lamp light after a hard day's  work. Another brother, S. A.  Brown of the Manitoba Ha  ware, 1716 Commercial Drr  Vancouver,   was     the   cannery's  representative dealing with Kelly  Douglas for sales outlet.  In those days Gibsons Landing  was an anchored raft where  freight and passengers were unloaded for a single general merchandise store and a few old  houses. Smith's Landing had a  smaller anchored raft. The old  wooden "Brittania" called with  mail, etc., and many a time was  unable to land on account of  rough waters.  Dad paid the Nanaimo Indians  90 cents a sack for digging clams  and they were shipped over to  our cannery by the scowload,  which was run ashore and unloaded by wheelbarrow. The  clam business didn't last too long  (Continued on Page 6)  IA83S  0 9  VIHOIOIA  IHVHSII TSTO'IIAOHd By E. NESTMAN  MRS. RUTH MacDonald is taking  a flying trip to English, where  she will visit her brother who is  ill.  Mrs. A. Gardner away to Vancouver, was all set to join Mr.  Gardner in Ocean Falls, when  telegram halted all proceedings,  plans all changed, a very disappointed lady home again, until  further notice. Has any one found  a Longine lady's gold wrist  watch, if so our Rene Davies has  lost same, and if you will bring  it in to the Coast News office, I  know it is going to make some  one very happy.  So the water was off the other  night, and many mutterings and  groans were heard. They tell me  the firemen were pouring cement  and mighty grimy, that evening,  and were unable to take that expectant shower. Well the whole  ��� thing was that Wally was installing a new fire hydrant on Main  street, and ran into a little  trouble in so doing, he was there  until 4:30 a.m. Any time there is  a shutdown of water, for any  length of time, you can rest assured that there is some work  being done on main line, and no  need for any worry. If it is a  little inconvenient, try to realize  that it is something that is being  done for your benefit.  They tell me our local welding  ace and his wife took a trial spin  in a speed boat the other evening,  and almost had the reserves out  looking for them. Ran out of gas  other side of Keats. Of course,  there wouldn't be a boat within  miles when such a thing happens.  After paddling for what seemed  like hours, they reached the Cor-  ley farm near Keats. After being fortified with hot tea and  some badly needed gas, they  reached home after 1 a.m. If they  had been 15 minutes later the reserves would have been all out  to locate them. Oon't mention  boat rides to Nessy for a while.  . Our*'Doug Davies, wife and  family set out for a picnic to  Keats last week, in their speed  boat. A very miserable wave  turned them over very nicely  just as they were about to land,  Results, no picnic,.nq.Uunch,.-and,.....  some' very damp folks returned  home very disillusioned. Better  luck next time folks.  Visiting Mr. and Mrs. Duncan  MacPhail at Elphinstone View  Farm, were Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth MacPhail, and son Johnny  from Victoria.  Very interesting talk with Mr.  D. G. McDougall, who is visiting  us again for a few days from Boston Bar. His daughter and son  both led their school in high  marks, and Edith Mae, 13, won  scholarship. She is going in for  a doctor, and the boy for forestry  work. Their school principal  gave Gibsons . School highest  praise, and notes that our school  has one of the highest ratings in  the B.C. area. Certainly a very  fine tribute to the school, Mr.  McDougall high in praise of former Margaret Wagner, who he  feels has a great part in the children's success.  Our Father O'Dwyer back from  that almost 4000-mile trip down  to the borders of Mexico. We are  sure he was flying low this trip,  to get there and back in less than  two weeks. He had a grand  time, saw a lot of country, and  we know he is very glad to be  back.  Mrs. Lil Schutz home, and feeling very well after her rendezvous with the operating table.  She hopes to be up and around  in the very near future, and they  tell me that she is supposed to  be very quiet for next few days.  Somehow know that's going to  be mighty hard to do, knowing  Lil.    Anyway, rest and sunshine  ae___Rs_a_______-  ��eelde audi Stand  ZONING of the wharf at Gibsons will surely lead  to the same thing happening, in the not far  future, at Sechelt.  It is a move vital to the proper flow of traffic on the wharves but will no doubt cause some  grumbling and shouts of "favoritism".  Harbor Master C. P. Smith, in the case of '  Gibsons, has been approached and urged to arbitrate on parking. Both Gibsons Board of Trade  and the Taxi Association have made moves toward regulating the vehicular flow on the wharf.  There seems to be unanimity in the desire at  least. We only hope there is in the suggestion to  follow.  We would suggest to Mr Smith that first he  call a meeting of all interested parties and have  them lay bare their plans and hopes and sugges-  Dental Care is a Must  CHILDREN in  our schools may,  this fall,  have  dental work done, at school.  Late last year the School Board authorized a  dental survey of pupils' dental requirements  which disclosed that 500 of 700 inspected were in  need of denture work.  Negotiations then fell apart, resulting in the  schools being without dental advice and care since  that time.  A committee set up by the School Board and  including Public Health Nurse Mrs D. Dando and  Dr Hugh Inglis, has been investigating the possibility of a dentist coming here to do .school work  only. It is believed that success is in the offing.  According to Committee Secretary N. Richard  McKibbin, "we have every belief that a dentist  will take over inspections and corrective work on  children's teeth, this fall."  Mr McKibbin, it is who has done most of the  ground work in procuring the professional services.  The committee is to be congratulated on its  efforts. It is well known there has been to this  date a scarcity of dentists willing to go into country schools in order to do work which will hardly  be remunerative to any great degree.  Jn discussions which followed the resolve to  have a' dentist do the children's work, it was  found there is a scarcity of dentists and then  that many of the younger doctors find it convenient to stay in,the towns.and cities where more  tions.  Naturally enough, the most interested will  be bus operators and taxi owners both local and  "foreign". Each, no doubt has his own ideas. Some  of them will be good and some just purely selfish.  Mr Smith will have the job of sifting, but from  these discussions will no doubt come a clear picture of the* real needs of all.  With a real desire to serve the travelling public and a sense of fair play to guide him, we suggest the Harbor Master will doubtlessly come up  with a plan whereby the good of the majority will  be served.  But one thing may' be necessary and that is  when he has made his decision he must abide by  same. Only by being adamant can he best serve  the many.  remunerative work can be' had.  Mr McKibbin points out that a dentist is not-  assured "but there is good reason to believe we  can get a man to at least take over for a time, the  work so urgently needed among the children."  We would like to point out to the committee  that this fall is late enough. We are grateful for  the amount of work done by it but that hardly  excludes the fact that the committee has an urgent duty toward the children it is there to help.  It is not enough that an attitude of "we have  done our share", prevails.  We know it has done its share. In so doing it  has built a belief that it is handling the situation  and everything is under control. Therefore the  community lets it have its course with its implied hint of success.  Despite the knowledge that criticism is easy  from the sidelines and despite the fact we are  going to be accused of left-handed compliments  we would like to very strongly point out that in  the matter of dental care "it is always later than  you think". We would urge the committee to assure dental care, starting as soon as possible in  Sepember.  We would urge that no stone be left unturned  in getting this important adjunct to the public  health program under way as soon as possible.  Again we .reiterate, in spite of what may be  construed frpm this, that we are grateful for the  work done. We urge that the furrow be kept true  and straight.  '^>r" fty'fyi*. ���y'.-f^*'^^ >,>..

Plant Protection  With Antibiotics  PENICILLIN is a household  word in the world today. Not  only.has it revolutionized medical practice and saved many  thousands of lives, it represents  a new approach to disease control in man and animals and now  plant scientists are seeking the  counterpart of penicillin as an  ally in the fight to control plant  diseases.  This so-called -miracle drug"  is but one of several antibiotics,  or chemical substances produced  by micro-organisms which check "  the growth or interfere with the ���  life processes of other minute  forms of life that may produce  diseases in man, animals or  plants. Other less well known  antibiotics besides penicillin, include streptomycin, ��� aureomycin  and some others that are still on  the secret list.  For some time, plant pathologists and bacteriologists have .  been engaged in fundamental research work dealing with substances similar to penicillin as a  means of controlling certain  seed-borne diseases of crop,  plants and progress is being ,  made.  Before  a  disease   can be  adequately   controlled,  first the organism  causing  it must  be  isolated and its life history studied,-  so it can be hit at the weakest  point with  the    most    effective  weapon  available. Canadian  scientists are hopeful that a. counterpart of penicillin can be found  to combat plant diseases,  which -  might eliminate some of the cost- ~  ly and rather elaborate spraying  and   dusting  methods   -used    at .  present.  Several antibiotics tested   show   promise,   for   instance,  in the control of a fungus disease ,  that is proving a limiting factor  in  pea  production,  as  so  far it  has  defied   all   ordinary   control  practices used against it.

By "ARIES'  SPECIAL mention was made by  the Vicar of St Hilda's Church,  the Reverend  U.   V.  Oswald  on  the   passing,     in   Vancouver   recently, of one^of our oldest pioneers, Mrs Helen Thomson, widow  of the late William Thomson. Mrs  Thomson had not lived here for  many years  owing  to  her  great  age, she was ninety-four but still  had   a   great interest  in  Sechelt  and paid us a visit five years ago  when she stayed at the Sechelt  Inn. In her day she did much to  enliven Sechelt and many a good  house gathering was held at the  Thomson home.  She  came  here  when the place was opened  for  pre-emption  in   1914 just before  the World War I. The Thomson's  settled on the waterfront on what  is now  known  as Marine Drive  and the place now owned by Mr  and Mrs E. E. Redman and their  family.    Amongst    those coming  here then were Mr and Mrs Findlay,  Mr   antt Mrs  W.  Mills,  Mr  and  Mrs   D.   Mclntyre,   Mr   and  Mrs J.  Gugoin,  Mr  and Mrs  S.  Delong,    Frank    French,    Harry  Barr,   but   Harry   Barr   did   not  come back from the war to his  claim.   Also W.     Mitchell    who  came back,   but   was   for   many  years an invalid in Shaughnessy  Military Hospital and who gave  the site at the  hill top for  the  rural school, long since removed,  and on the school grounds in the  village.   Mr  and  Mrs   Al Mason  were   here   also,   for  whom  the  Mason  Road was  named.  There  are not many of the original pre-  emptors  left here now  so  it  is  fitting  that  we  should    so    remember one who has passed on.  Sechelt owes much to these  old  pioneers.

Derolyn Cook is back after a  few days spent in Vancouver just  in time to say goodbye to her  grandmother, who has been visiting Mr and Mrs Bob Cook, who  tells us that Sechelt is quite a  change from Winnipeg.  We had a call from John McKenzie staying with Mr and Mrs  Charlie Stubbs. He has been  coming back and forth many  years and likes it here but also  likes it in the. Okanagan.  Our house, is just a mass of  sweet peas and nastursiums from  the garden of Mrs Cecil Lawrence on the Porpoise- Bay road  at the bus depot. This is a glorious sight. The swallows that  nested in the Coast News Box on  the bus office have hatched out,  all five of them. We have noticed  many birds there enjoying a bath  in the shallow pond in the garden in the heat of the day. So  look at this spot of beauty as you  pass won't you.  With so many roads to race up  and down to their hearts content  why have certain young men  with cars taken to the narrow  -trails meant for walking? These  are so beautiful and there are so  few of them it is too bad when  one is confronted by a car in the  narrow lane and one just has to  turn and go back or climb over  the wheels which can't be done  with dignity by most of us.

The men operating the draw  made nothing from it. We would  just like to make that point clear.  Each and everyone connected  with it is absolutely honest and  above board. The first thing they  did was set up an auditing committee to see that every penny  was accounted for.

It seems he had  been bitten by some kind of insect, scratched the top off, put  powder on and waited results.  Here's what happened. He had  put the wrong dope on, the Doc  prescribed something different,  the infection spread but was finally brought under control.. It  was embarrassing, and painful,  while it lasted. I suggest you  tune in CBR 7:55 a.m. for good  hints for good health.

Mr Garnet Reid and family,  ' along with brother Lyle, returned to the city after spending a  short holiday at the home of his  mother, Mrs G. Reid of Davies  Bay.  The result of an electric light  bulb being thrown carelessly on  to the beach, caused several minor cuts on the leg of a stalwart  three-year-old boy. The youngster was playing on one of the  logs, when he contacted the glass.  A sjearch was made and the remainder of the bulb was found;  and disposed of, as well as a broken bottle. We all are careless,  or thoughtless at times. But surely, if we have a conscience, we  must go back and rectify ;this potential danger.
