Monday, July 3, 1950  5c per copy, $2.00 per year, by mail  BILL SUTHERLAND  Editor, The Coast News  ���<  ^SITTING in the office at three in  the morning pounding out this  jjcopy for the. two people who read  fat, I am subject to some  weird  ��and  wondrous . thoughts.     Such  jas.   Why is the radio so good at  t.this  time of night.    I   am  half  [listening  to  a  duet from  some-  |where near the Mexican border,  ifeinging "sometime."   That brings  hack memories of the first time I  heard that number.    It was the  fireman's Ball in Rossland when  Georgia    Day ' was   canary  for  Mart Kenny.  That iri turn leads to the days  :tn the mines when the water  poured flown .the back of my  peck as' I gingerly sunk. a hole  hear j that miss in the round. A  quick switch brings me to the-  time when I worked as water  guard for, old Johnny Stutski in  ���the village of Spahamun, just  north of Merrit. It was there- that  I saw the most beautiful outlaw  horse I have ever even heard of.  was working for horses at the  |ime. That is, for every day's  pork I did guarding the Indian's  Jjluipe gates, I got a horse for  Images. I told Johnny that I  wanted that horse which I had  friyii seen. The old, wrinkled  ^aeed,' one time white man killer,  Just' grinned and grunted in his  Ji^j>py fashion. Indians, at least  those ones, can grunt happily,  disgustedly and angrily. Johnny  *ave a happy one.  "You no get 'im." he said soberly. "Dat horse worth plenty  money an' saddle. But he is  ^vorth much better out there in  |he brush. He help keep Johnny's  brand  good.    He bad horse for  pie look after them good an' dat  itorse's brood never hungry.  j The old man, who once had a  to-ice on his head for killing a  'white man," looked at me as he  jpoke. I was busy adding some  bvater for the fourteenth time to  ji potvof pemmican but I knew  Jie shrewd gentleman whom I  admired and liked, was watching  ne. "You ketch um. Johnny  |ive to you for nothing, in fact,"  pe words rolled out from between the snaggy teeth, "Johnny  .ay you fer catchin' um." I knew  hen I would have to settle for  rdinary knot heads. But I was  lever sorry about that deal. The  ype of horse' that a man could  ove from a distance, he was high  it the shoulders and wide and  ��leep in the chest, his belly cut  ack fairly sharp, not too sharp,  oward a powerful pair. of legs  hat tapered faster than a thor-  ughbred's to a thin, springy fet-  ock. You could tell all these  hings from" seeing him outlined  . gainst the skvline of that fabulous Talking Stone country. He  fwas the type of animal that could  fpnly be pictured.  Sechelt Boar  Start Tourist Driv  SECHELT���Approximately $700 will be spent this year in advertising the beauties and fine points of this community,  according "to a decision made at the Board   of  Trade   general  meeting, Monday]  GIBSONS���Pupils here took some of the joy from closing day  and gave it back in many ways to teachers who had served'  them well for several terms but were now leaving them.  E. Parr Pearson and Raymond  Deacon were authorized to go  ahead with an ambitious scheme  for attracting tourists. The . program, endorsed by William  "Watts, representing the Gulf  Lines, will consist of 10,000 colored map folders. The reverse  side will carry pictures showing  the summer attractions of Sechelt, Halfmoon *Bay, Wilson  Creek and Selma Park. Information in respect to tourists will  also be included. Printed in two  colors, the two sided folder will  carry advertising and be approximately, 17 by 22 inches in  size.  The art work and construction  throughout will be done locally.  Distribution ��� will cover hotels;,  tourist bureau, sporting goods  stores and gas stations where  tourists  call.  This plan will tie in with that  recently authorized for Gibsons,  which is how ready for the  press.  Due   to   close  liaison be-  tween the two boards there will  be no clashing of aims pr interests. Each will supplement the  other in an endeavour to attract  tourists.  In defending his plans, and in  answer to criticism of, what is  there here to attract tourists?  Mr Pearson pointed out that  everyone was sitting back crying there were no tourists because' there was no accommodation. "Let's bring in the visitors,"  he said. "The accommodation  will follow. When money sees  there is money to be made in  catering to aan even flow of  tourists, the facilities will arrive  ���and fast."  The Board of Trade,, sparked  by its president Ken Whitaker,  aproved the plan. According to  Mr Pearson it will be only a  matter of days before final  touches are made to the drawings.  St. Mary's Hospital  Subject of Attack  Here's A  Pet Home  GIBSONS���Wanted. A little pup  or kitten.  There is a four year old youngster In Gibsons who finds his  love for dogs and cats gets him  into trouble. In his efforts to be  friendly with dogs and cats, any  dogs or cats, homely, bad tempered and just plain biters,  young Randy Ancfil often gets  himself snarled and snapped  at.  His parents believe if he had  a pup of his own or a kitten he  would be less likely to be bitten  by strange dogs.  So. If you have a little pup or  kitten that wants a good home,  see Mrs Mark Anctil or just drop  her a line, General Delivery,  Gibsons.  Yachting Club  To Visit Here  PENDER HARBOUR. ��� According to word received here,  more than 30 American yachts  '-will- enter "this harbour-f or a -10111'  of the area on July 7 or 8.  They are slated to rendezvous  in Plumper's Cove, Keats Island  on July 7. It is expected they  win remain overnight in that location. >  <  PENDER HARBOUR���The Board of Trade here, at the instiga- Willtr_JfPr  TTpaHk  tion of Mrs J. L. Jermaine, will attempt to have the Colum- ��T "iiUJ^ux   J.��VrUUO  bia Coast Mission "carry but a promise made many years ago."  In   a   scathing   denunciation  I  (Continued on Page 8)  of the management and control  of St Mary's Hospital here, Mrs  Jermain scored what she termed  "shortsighted policy. Lack of  foresight and adherence to promises made." There's a tremendous lack of coordination and  cooperation there. Even the staff  are discontented with conditions," she charged.  She accused hospital authorities- with having "gone back on  their word. They promised to increase the bed capacity to 20 if  we built them a nurses home,"  she said. "The home has been  finished for two years now, yet  they will not even attempt to  increase the capacity."  (Continued  on  Page  2)  "V  Publicity Folders aire  Now Heady lor Presses  GIBSONS���Every merchant in Gibsons and surrounding area  ���?���'       has been given, a covering letter by the Board of Trade's  Publicity Committee in an effort to raise $400 necessary for  printing 10,000 colored folders.  XThe response is good but there    ��� ���: : "  are still many merchants who  have not as yet sent in their remittance. It is . pointed "out that  the success of this whole scheme  depends upon the cooperation of  everyone. Said a Board of Trade  spokesman, "It is very unfair to  have the load carried by a few  merchants when all of us will  gain by new tourist dollars. It is  every person's pledge of faith in  the future. All merchants stand  to gain by an increase in trade  for this area. All merchants  should in all fairness to. the community they serve, send in their  donation."  will be circulated along the coast  in hotels, travel bureaux and resorts, from Vancouver to Mexico.  S.aid a Tourist Bureau executive, "These Americans are' actually crying for places like you  have (Gibsons) to go to. We cannot supply the need for information that comes into this office  every month. You,, in Gibsons,  with Salmon Rock at your door,  have a million dollar asset. Why  don't you go after the American  money? They want to find places  like yours."  The Board of Trade is answering that challenge by means of  These folders, depicting in pro- publicity and the "Housing Com-  fessional pictures, the true attri- mittee, which will take up the  butes-. and .-beauties of this area,    slack where hotels are missing.  Pupils Construct  Kinsmen Posters  GIBSONS���Those fine, telling  posters which announce the  Kinsmen Fishing Derby, now in  full swing, were made by high  school youths.  Among those deserving special  mention and eligible for the  main prizes are: Art Thomson,  Pete Slin, Carmen Robinson,  Kim Elliott and Don Tretheway.  James Marshall  New Poslmasie  GIBSONS.���James Marshall will  replace Robert Telford as postmaster,  here, according to word  received from Ottawa.  Date of taking over his new  duties has not yet been disclosed.  "It will be some time this month,  but just exactly when, I don't  know," Mr. Marshall said.  One-time partner with his brother in Marshall's Hardware, he  was .chosen from nine .applicants,  five of which wrote  the exams.  Sadie Cormack  Dies at Home  HALFMOON   BAY.���Mrs.   Sadie  Cormack, 65, who died at her  home,    was    buried in  Seaview  Cemetery, Thursday.  Survived by her husband,  popular notary public and onetime owner of nearly all property  composing Halfmoon Bay, Mrs.  Cormack was well known for her  interest in social welfare.  . Funeral services were held at  home. Graham's Funeral Home  was in  charge  of arrangements.  Trade Body  SECHELT���Ken Whitaker was  re-elected president of the  Board of Trade at a general  meeting in the Sechelt Inn, Monday.  Other officers are L. S. Jackson, vice president; Jack Mayne,  secretary; Mrs W. Berry, re-elected treasurer; Father T. Viney,  Ernie Pearson, and James Parker will represent Sechelt on the  executive. Halfmoon Bay will  have as representatives, W. Kolterman. Ted Roseboom, and Edward Pratt. Wilson Creek representatives are, E. E. Coe,  Andrew Johnston and R. L.  Jackson.  Miss W. New, following nine  years service to the schools and  in view of her retirement from ,  teaching was awarded a scroll  signed by every pupil she had  taught during that period.  Janitor Doug Davies was also  remembered by grateful students  who presented him with a handsome cigarette lighter for his part  in handling sport. The cup for  softball interhouse league champions was handed to Norman  Peterson, captain of the winning  team.  May Queen Doris Farnham  was guest of honor presenting  pupils with prizes donated by  the P.T.A. This group was also  honored when Mrs. M.

M. "Batt" Maclntyre, MLA, has the interest of his constituents at heart. Just in case there is any  doubt herewith a letter to prove his point.    This was sent The  Coast News following the 'open letter' of two weeks ago.  Thank you) kindly for the copy      : ; =���   of your valued publication dated,  Monday, June 19, 1950, containing the open letter to me concerning the amalgamation of  lots 685 and 686 into the village  of Gibsons.  As you and your readers are  no doubt aware' I have spent a  lot of time trying to. bring this  matter to a head, even to the extent of bringing the minister of  municipal affairs to the village  of Gibsons.  I regret that I am unable to go  to Victoria at this time as I am  booked through Mackenzie riding until the end of July, but in  the meantime I am writing my  views to the minister, and as your "  article has summed the matt��Fr*\t��aq  up very well and with the jfftsi*"**'***  proportion   of   humor  I  am  en  closing it with my letter to his  ofifces today. In the event that  nothing is accomplished before  the first of August then I shall  be prepared to go over to the  capital city and enter the hallowed halls of the Government  buildings and do battle on behalf  of the people of the Headlands  district.  My sincere best wishes to you  and the good people of Gibsons  and may the people of lots 685  and 686 be assured of an adequate water supply during the  coming winter.  Sincerely  BATT.  MACINTYRE  0 a   "���'���''���'������ ���������"������'"ViHOiaiA  J_H��H8I*I llflOMIikOHd- Readers Say  SIR:  A rather puzzling problem in  mathematics has arisen on which  you may be able to throw some  light, or if not you, perhaps the  CMA or the Chamber of Commerce.  Members of those august bodies have repeatedly stated that  the cause of the continually increasing cost of living, through  rising prices, is the rapacious demands by labor. This seems to be  borne out by recent developments, when lumber workers obtained a raise in wages, which  was followed, with commendable  promptitude, by increased prices  for lumber. However, there are  some unexplained factors:  The latest rise in price is the  third since October, totalling  'about a 40 percent increase. The  raise in wages amounts to about  12y2 percent. Little, if any, lumber affected by the wage increase is yet ready for market.  Further, on an average logging  , operation the payroll cost is  about 25 percent of total production cost, and I believe somewhat  the same percentage holds true as  to saw-milling. Therefore, a 12%  percent increase on 25 percent of  production costs would seem to  mean about a 4 percent nett  jump^ in total production cost.  If, then, there has been a 4 percent increase in cost of production caused by the aforesaid rapacious demands of labor, and  the timber merchants are being  forced to accept, with much reluctance, a-40 percent increase in  price, and the wage increase did  not enter into the costs of lumber yet on the market, who  gets the other 36 percent?  I would be glad to have this  answered, without   reference   to  the Einstein theory of relativity,  and without the aid of mirrors.  ROBERT BURNS.  No Flushing  For Gibsons  SECHELT. ��� B.  M.  "Batt" Mc-  Intyrevwas guest speaker at the  ' annual- .Meeting - of the*Board*; o��  Trade.  He disclosed that a supplementary appropriation for public  works will amount to $75,000 for  the McKenzie riding.  "This will be cut in two," he  said. "Thirty-five thousand will  be spent in the peninsula and  $40,000 in the Powell River area.  But I want to warn you, right  now," he said to board members,  "the next year's extra money will  be spent in double flushing the  road from the end of the black  top at Gibsons to past where the  new high school will be built.  You people get the lion's share-  this year, it's Gibsons next year."  The Sechelt double flushing  will be completed by the end of  September, Mr. Mclntyre disclosed.    '  In discussing the Clowholm  Falls project, the M.L.A. quoted  Premier Byron Johnston as saying. "When Clowholm Falls project is complete we will bring  the power down the inlet to  Sechelt, then to Gibsons. We can  then consider Pender Harbour  and Halfmoon Bay."  Mr Mclntyre suggested there  could quite probably be a family  squabble re the Welcome Beach  cutoff. "The Power Commission  wants the right of way cleared  by the Public Works department  before they put in poles to Halfmoon, while E. C. Carson, minister of public works, feels he  should hardly be forced into  clearing the right of way just to  help land promoters and the  Power- Commission. No doubt  these things will iron themselves  out soon," he said.  fflta ���txnsf ��fehts %lb.  Member  Canadian  Weekly   Newspapers Association  (B.C.

Telephones:  Editorial    Department,   Gibsons   45  ���Commercial    Printing,    Gibsons    45  ��edleaitedi T�� Service  THERE must be dozens of jobs which should be  done throughout this Peninsula on behalf of  the "little fellow". But there are so few groups  that will take the time and trouble to work without recompense. Recompense in the -sense that  money is such.  We are lucky in having the Gibsons Kinsmen.  This club, composed of ordinary people, really do  work for nothing when it has to do with the kids.  And even then it is not always necessary to have  children as beneficiaries.  Sunday nights the music from Kinsmen operated public address systems floats over the  water toward Salmon Rock and its cluster of  fishermen, and up and down the main streets of  this village. The lyrics from Caruso's golden  throat waft past the" municipal park with its Kinsmen erected swings and up the mountain side to  the homes by the church.  The drive against ever prevalent TB will,  this fall, be guided by Kinsmen hands. It will be  the club members' donated time effort that shall  handle the money and the issuing of seals and  mailing of letters and the many other jobs which  are part and parcel of the drive.  No one benefits in a monetary fashion from  being a Kinsman. In fact there are few members  not actually out of pocket in their efforts to serve  the community and its children.  The recently finished Polio Drive, handled  by a Kinsmen Committee, was successful in raising nearly $100. This money will go toward defeating that scourge of children.  Life saving boards are  on every beach  be-  There Are Two Sides  MRS J. L. Jermaine, she of the scathing tongue  and quick mind laid her sights even with  the directorate of St Mary's Hospital and let go  with both barrels.  When the dust of rubble and broken promises  had sifted out from the alegations and denunciations, the Pender Board of Trade executive sat  back and took a deep breath.  Warily they eyed what Mrs Jermaine had  left, following one of the most scathing attacks  and vitriolic denunciations to which it has been  our bad luck to listen. Mrs Jermaine painted a  pretty picture, of, a hospital with 20 beds which  would" start to'pay ior 'itself. She contended'that  St Mary's needed a few more beds, and it would  successfully snowball itself into a whirling dervish of success. We presume this is what the lady  implied. In fact she said such.  She suggested that St Mary's had not as yet  made the first little whirl. She blamed the authorities. She accused them of everything but being ��� gentlemen.  But there are quite a few things which Mrs  Jermaine failed to take into consideration when  she mentioned financially successful hospitals.  Where did the successful hospital get its  revenue. Let's not' hide our heads in the sand.  There are several financially successful hospitals  in B.C.���not many, only a very few which has  spiralled and "snowballed." And every one of  them has outside aid. None of them rely entirely  on patient revenue as Mrs Jermaine implied.  We all know sweepstakes are illegal in B.C.  Mrs Jermaine suggested, in fact insisted, that  the Board of Trade compel the Columbia Coast  Mission to fix its lighting system; repair, at more  than $10,000 cost: its water supply, system and redecorate the hospital throughout. Then the board,  or Mrs Jermaine or some group would blandly  demand that the CCM. hand over the whole  brightly nolished jewel for the huge investment  of $1.  Please leave us come from without the woods.  Naive we are, and probably naive we will be,  but we doubt if we are that bad.  We were certainly glad to see that the  Board of Trade looked that horse very carefully  in the mouth.  Scorned Mr Lloyd Davis. "Are we to believe  the Columbia Coast Mission, low in finances as  it probably is, will spend the last of its "money  to fix the whole thing up so they can sell it to  us for a dollar?"  Mrs Jermaine quoted the ex minister of health,-  George Pearson, as saying, "You get the Hospital and we will-help you." Mrs Jermaine then  .contended there was certainly no need for help  ih a 20 bed hospital, "like a snowball, once they  start to pay for themselves,  they start to grow  tween Hopkins and Pender Harbour. They were  made and erected by the Kinsmen Club.  This is no small list of achievements when it  is considered that only now are the Kinsmen in  their second year of living here.  During this short time the club has also been  donated a park by the Jackson brothers, AND IT  IS EVEN NOW NEGOTIATING TO TAKE OVER  THE PARK STARTED BY THE NOW DEFUNCT  Memorial Playground Society. This, latter project  will be a many year one. Swings and playing  equipment for children are in the offing for this.  Other plans will be laid in the near future.  This year the club sponsored what has been  termed "the best ever" May Day parade. Under  its president, Reg Godfrey. The ten week Salmon  Derby, now in full swing with weighing in stations at all the principal boat rental agencies, is  another part of Kinsmen activities.  There are other clubs and associations which  have done some wonderful work in this peninsula,  but we would suggest that in the short time it  has had to work that the Kinsmen Club has already compiled a record of public service that is  second to none.  We are glad there is such a unit on the Peninsula. It serves a dual purpose. Giving to the children various opportunities and equipment with  which they can have some of the fun that is their  heritage, plus the uplift and feeling among its  members of having done good for the area.  The community is lucky there is such a club.  Without it there would be a lot of essential work  left undone.  and grow."  Surely the people in St Mary's must be aware  of this peculiar phenomena if such is the case.  She contended the * management of the hospital  was lax and disinterested. Case histories of patients there hardly bear that contention out."  One thing that should be borne in mind is  that the Hamilton report ignored completely the  St Mary's Hospital and suggested a clinic be set  up in Sechelt.  The  contention   is  made that the  Hamilton  Report did not consider anything less than a 60  bed unit. The Sechelt unit was considered by the  ��� Hahiilton report and it is not a 60 bed unit.  If it were not for the Columbia Coast Mission,  Pender Harbour would not have any sort of hospital. It would be at the mercy of first aid men  and ex nurses.  The Board of Trade has the right idea. Probably there are things which could be remedied.  Probably there are some things which could be  improved. But if there are they are going to try  and have these changes made in a proper and  calm manner.  This going off and kicking around $1 sales,  even if it has been promised, is not good enough.  Anyone who would want to sell St Mary's for $1  is not mad, but quite probably smart. The Board  of Trade is correct as it decided to look into the  allegations.  We suggest they do more with their eyes  than they do with their ears. Sometimes these  snowballs, fall apart with the first touch of a  critical wind.  There is no doubt in our mind ��but what Mrs  Jermaine is quite sincere and honest in her oui-  look. We know she had done a lot of work on  behalf of the hospital. We believe she has reason for being disgusted at times. But we would  just remind the good ^ady that there is only one  thing that matters at the moment and tomorrow  as well���that is the welfare of the patients now  and potential.  If the Columbia Coast Mission is undermined  to such an extent that it can no longer operate,  it is possible, maybe even probable, that the  Hamilton Report would be implemented for the  Sechelt Peninsula.  We feel sure that even St Mary's would certainly be better than that makeshift off-the-  track idea of trying to service Pender via Halfmoon Bay Hill with two feet of snow on it. Yet  that is what the government is committed to do.  Even if St Mary's is the proverbial half a loaf,  we would strongly suggest that Pender hold on to  it. It is a far cry to Sechelt in the winter time.  Room there may be for improvement but we  would suggest that any suggestions come from the  heart and not from the purse.  SECHELT  By "ARIES"  .  P-TA SECHELT got off to a  good start and ,a good slate of  officers at the annual meeting.  Retiring President L. S. Jackson  was thanked by Mrs A. A.  French chairman of nominations  committee on behalf of that, committee for his work in the last  year. Those elected were Bob  Cooke, president; H. Johnston,  vice-president^ Mrs  Jack ~   Red  man, recording secretary, Mrs E.  Predangast, corresponding secretary; Mr P. Stroshein, treasurer. Membership J. McLeod;  Publicity, Mrs Alex Grey, Social,  Mrs Postlewaithe and Mrs Bertha Power; Health Mrs C. Lucken; Librarian, Mrs A. A. French;  Program, Mrs D. McColl and  Miss Elsie Turner. Bringing the  evening to a satisfactory close  were pictures shown by W. J.  Mayne of the First May Day celebration in 1949 and the second  one just recently. Both were in  technicolor and very much enjoyed. It is hoped that Mr Mayne  will  again  show  these    to    the  regular meeting when there are  hopes for increased membership.  Noticed here for a short vacation, Dick and Paddy Cline with  the children. Dick hasn't changed much,! still drives with the  same yen for speed.  Staying here oh a short visit  with Mrs F.

Mrs Spel-  man has recently spent six  months in England so Alice Amelia is having a grand time catching up on all the doings of the  Spelman clan, her relatives back  (Continued on ��� Page 3)  o:  MORE ABOUT ...  St. Mary's Hospital    *  (Continued From Page 1)  Quoting Percy Ward, inspector  of hospitals, she urged the Board  of Trade to try and have the  former three point promise kept,  "then buy the hospital for a  previously offered $1 sale. Once  we own the hospital we can acquire assistance from the government," she said Mr Ward had  assured her.  "George   Pearson,"    she    said,  "told us we could have help  if  we owned the hospital." She also  suggested that a 20 bed hospital  r could quite easily pay for itself.  Mrs   Jermain   condemned   the  lack of a blood bank or    blood 'l  typing equipment. "This hospital  should be  carried on as a hos-1  pital, not a hobby," she said.    . j  The   three   point   promise   referred to was  if outside money  would   build   the   nurses   home, j  *the  hospital would improve the'  lighting,   the  water  supply   system   and   enlarge   the   hospital."  "The  nurses'   home   has   been  finished for these two years arid,  still nothing has been done    toward implementing their word,"  she said.  During   the   discussion   which  followed the attack, it was point-,  ed out by Board President Royal  Murdock  that  the  Hospital  had  been in difficulties by virtue of  war   shortages,    increased   costs,  and probably lessening of funds.  Lloyd Davis  pointed out   that  the   service   was  good  when  he  had been in the hospital only a  few  weeks previously.   He   contended that little could be done  with the water system, owing t(  the   nature    of    supply:    "Thej  would have to build a complete  new dam to assure a    head  water," he said. "This cost, now  would be prohibitive."  It was also pointed out tha  just as long as Vancouver was  situated as it is with its up-to'  date hospitals and specialists, S  Mary's Hospital would always  suffer. People, when> they are  sick, want the best in treatment  and equipment."  Royal Murdock said one of the  greatest points of contention  lay in local patients still goih*  to Vancouver. This, naturally  cuts into the hospital's *revenue  The first thing to be done is "t<  go out and sell the hospital t<  the local people. They can mak<  it pay," he urged.

Monday,   July 3,    1950  By  GlenWood  ^ PRESIDENT of our unit, Capt  Francis Drage, JP, just returned from Victoria so I phoned  him and asked him to let me  have the news. He tells me he  , had a very interesting trip to  Victoria and dealt with a great  deal of business.  He informs me he has no doubt  that the plans for    the    Army,  Navy  and  Airforce  Recreational  Club Extension will be approved  shortly. On the way from Victoria he stayed over in Vancouver  for  three   days and   started  the  '��� ball rolling in the matter of supplies and donations. I understand  . that great  generosity  was    dis-  I played by many interested busi-  s ness houses who approve of the  splendid work done by the Gam-  i bier Club and that supplies will  start to roll in early this coming  Aweek. A scow will arrive with a  j good supply of lumber, windows,  | plate glass window for the front,  jrubberoid and tar paper, cement  f and sand, nails and chimney ma-  tterial so again it looks as though  I? we are away to a good start. Pre-  i liminary work in preparation has  p^ already started and   actual construction will commence as soon  ; as the final official approval is  I given to the new plan. In charge  ��� of the new extension  is  Secretary  Adkins  and   working   with  ..him on the preliminary work are  'Gust  Lund and  Jack Anderson.  iThe new extension provides for  -a   recreation   room   24x30,   with  'spool   tables,   facilities  for  cards,  i>radio and piano. Additional cloak  p,room facilities will also be provided. Ply wood will be largely  ;iused in the new building and it  ��;certainly will be a very attractive set up for our members and  ! their  friends.   By  the   way   our  k membership    is rapidly   extending amongst the younger Gibsons  i veterans and we hope to welcome  ���more    shortly.     The    additional  .club   facilities  will  undoubtedly  i attract those who want to belong  j. to a well  run up to date club  iwith all facilities.  ?

Here are three of them:  1. Using B oft M cheques is  much safer. Your cheque is a  record of payment. If you lose or  mislay a receipt, you need never  fear having to pay the bill again.  Your cashed and cancelled  cheque serves as your receipt,  and automatically becomes proof  of payment.  . It's wiser, too. There's no  need to carry large sums in coin  and bills around with you.  Money once lost is pretty hard to  find, but you can't lose the  money in your account at the  Bank of Montreal, and no cheque  is worth a cent until you have  actually   signed   it.  3. With a chequing account,  you'll find budgeting easier.  Your stubs give an exact record  of how much you've spent, and  your B of M passbook provides  a double check on the state of  your account. The cost of the  service is  agreeably low.  T. A. B. Larson, manager of  the Bank of Montreal branch at  Gibsons, cordially invites you to  open your own account there,  and try out these advantages for  yourself.

As Mrs Parker was unable to  attend owing to sickness, Mrs  Larson, vice president, was in the  chair. After correspondence and  unfinished business was disposed  of, reports we're received from  various committees, and annual  reports were read of the activities of Brownies and Guides, copies of which were to be sent to  the District Commissioner, Mrs  Glendinning.

She is at present residing  with her parents at Selma, and  is assisting with counter duties  at Vic's Trading Post, Davies.  Bay, for the summer months.  Let us also extend a hand of  welcome to our newest neighbors, Mr and Mrs Waters, Ron  and Lyn with the baby, recently  arrived from Vancouver where  Ron worked for the H. R. McMillan Co. They have taken up  residence next door to the home  of the Mike Jacksons, who are  cousins of Lyn. Incidently, I  overheard the following in the?  Trading Post: Say, aren't you so-  and-so? . Shure answered Lyn  Waters, wondering what was  coming next.  Oh brother, I used to baby-sit  at your place, when you were a  child in arms. Thus it was Mrs  J. Davidson, who with her husband and child, are vacationing  at the home of her aunt and uncle, Mr and Mrs Huggins, Davies  Bay.  Mrs Barwick and Mrs -Hook,  both of Vancouver, recently of  Selma Park, are spending several happy weeks here at the cottage of Mrs Hill, she of the lovely garden. In the same company  are the Misses Felton, who  should be remembered by many  on the Peninsula, through their  work at the tea rooms at Selma.  These two sisters also managed  the Barbeque at Sechelt for the  USS Co.  Friends of Mrs Harry Morley,  who last year moved from the  Bay to Vancouver, will be sorry  to learn of her indisposition.

After  spending a few days, will visit  relatives of Mrs Mutter in Oregon. They expect to be away  about two weeks.  Last Friday, to everyone's surprise, the clouds rolled back, the  winds subsided, and '01 Sol came  out to welcome about twenty-  five members of the WCCC who  had been looking forward to a  beach party in the evening.  Yarns '' were swapped, hot-dogs  were dispatched, arj,d the echoes  of the lusty community songsters floated far over the bay.  That was just the beginning of  a series of parties to be held dur-  . ing the summer months, and ��� I  may add, special attention will  be paid' to the entertainment of  the children.  On Monday, June 26, on the  grounds at the home of Mrs G.  Wright, Wilson Creek, a strawberry tea was held from 2 p.m.  to 5 p.m. The fact that almost  one hundred and fifty people  passed through the turnstile, was  gratifying indeed to the sponsors, the WCCC. Many of the  visitors came from the sister  community at Selma Park and  were indeed welcome. While  Miss Shirley McNutt and Miss M.  Talbot, a visitor to these parts,  attended the wants of the guests,  Mr H. Begg supplied the music  from the repertoires of Erna  Sack and the Kentucky Minstrels. Congratulations are in order to the ladies of the auxiliary  for the splendid efforts they put  forth in order to make this event  the outstanding social affair thus  far.  ��� Madam   Wilsonia,   very   ably  MLA Tries to  Prod Victoria  GIBSONS���The   following    is   a  copy of the letter sent by B. M.  Maclntyre, M.L.A., on behalf of  the long delayed amalgamation,  between district lots 685 and 686.  Dear Mr. MacDonald:  Thank you very kindly for  your letter dated 22 May regarding the extension of the boundaries of the village of Gibsons.  I have received many letters  of interested parties residing in  lots 685 and 686 and no doubt  copies, of these letters have been  forwarded to your department.  They are at a loss to understand  why for a fourth time they must  circulate a petition.  My sympathy is with these  people, regardless of the legal  aspects, as the shortage of water  both in"'mid-summer and during  the winter seems*to be such an  unnecessary hardship to expect  these    residents  to be burdened  took*care of the tea-cup reading,  and the prizes for the raffle were  drawn by Miss Sundi Stroshein  and Miss Avril Lucken, this  year's May Queen attendants.  The following numbers were  drawn: No 315, Cape Cod chair,  Mrs Postlethwaite, Sechelt; No  429, rug, Mrs Snyed, Sechelt; No  739, set of pictures, Mrs H. Newcomer, Sechelt. The above winners are requested to call at the  home of Mrs G. Wright with the  ticket stub, to claim their prize.  Sunday, June 25, was an un- '  lucky day for Capt H. H. Bennett, skipper of the gilnetter  Edith, which was observed wallowing in a fairly heavy sea at 8  a.m. and at approximately 9 a.m.  finally crashed ashore, with its  engine still running, but the rudder had slipped its bed, and disappeared. A fact which caused  the tug to cast the lines off, as  its tow had become quite unmanageable.  Capt Bennett was knocked into the bay and was, with much,  difficulty, rescued through the  quick thinking of Mr J. Browning and Don Currie, who were  fortunately near the scene of this  almost tragic event. The unfortunate -skipper was rushed ^fo the  Pender Harbour Hospital, where  he is recovering from his unfortunate experience. Salvage operations are being undertaken by  the B.C. Packers' WAWANACA.  Another shipping incident,  within close proximity to the one  related above. A scow of coal  destined for the peninsula, was  ordered out from the flooding  Fraser. Apparently the hatches  were not battened down, being  overlooked in the rush.

Funeral services were held in  Vancouver. a  Among those travelling to  Vancouver recently were Mr and  Mrs E. Silvey, A. Page and his  mother, Mr F. Brooks, Mr* and  Mrs C. Brown and Mrs E. Crush.  Sorry   to   report   that popular  was ihe heat.  Kinsmen put on a very nice  concert via their loud speaker  last Sunday night. If you heard  it and have any suggestions they  will be very glad to hear about  it. They plan to do this Sunday  Nights this summer and would  welcome any ideas for programs.  So folks if you like this sort of  thing how about letting them  know.  Ladies of the Legion Auxiliary, put on a very fine strawberry tea June 28, met with a very  good response from the public,  and want to thank all those who  so generously helped.  Well folks after burning the  midnight oil, and racking my  bi-ainis, can't think of any more  news, if you won't give me any I  can't write about it. So till next  week, this is it.  By M. M.  THIS IS the season for garden  parties. Besides the P-TA garden tea and sale of home cooking on the 5th of July at Mrs E.  J. Shaw's, there will be a garden party and sale' of work by  the St Aidan's WA at the home  of Mrs Downes on July 20.   *  Another garden party is scheduled for August 11 at the home  of Mrs McMahon, Beach Avenue,  under auspices of the Women's  Organization of the United  Church of Roberts Creek,  Latest reports on members of  the Roberts Creek sick list seem  to indicate that they are making  satisfactory progress. Donny  Weal is still in hospital but has  been promoted from bed to  wheel chair. Mr F. W. Merrick  has been discharged from North  Van Hospital and is resting at  the home of his daughter and  son-in-law, Mr and Mrs W.  Thompson of West Vancouver.  Mr James Davidson is still in  hospital but making satisfactory  progress.  A recent visitor from Toronto  was Mr E. C. Hay, who spent a  few days with his brother and  sister-in-law, Mr and Mrs Lincoln of the Hall Road. Mrs Lincoln has left for a visit with her  sister in Quebec.  Miss Grace Albert of Sylvian  Lake,   Alberta,   is  the   guest   of  teacher from Irvine's Landing  had to be flown, sick, to Vancouver. Last reports she was improving.  As I'm taking sick leave in  Vancouver for three weeks, I  would like to have everyone who  is interested in sending their  news to the paper, send it directly (by bus) or mail, to The Coast  News, Gibsons. That should only  be for three weeks.  Friday, June 16, is one evening  that will be long remembered  by residents of the Pender Harbour area. That was the night  that nearly 400 persons crowded  into the.result of many years of  hard, work and just plain nerve  to see May Queen! Rosemary  Phillips cut the ribbon which,  opened the new Madiera Park  Hall.  Johnny Haddock opened the  ceremony from the flower decked stage by introducing the community club president, Al Stewart. Mr Stewart introduced popular B. M. 'Batt' Maclntyre,  MLA, who lauded the. club and  people for their fine display of  spirit and cooperative effort. To  the committees who wdfked so  long ahd hard to ma.ke this dancie  the success it was, should go the  thanks of the community.  Watch Repairs  G. L.

The re-building of the Edlund  and Anderson Garage, destroyed  by fire in March, will begin next  week.  Special equipment was sent into Roberts Creek last week to  take soundings of the Creek  mouth as preliminary to the  dredging, after which we can  look forward (we hope) to the  promised  small boat  harbor.  It is with very real regret that  we hear Mrs Heron is leaving  Roberts Creek in August. An exceedingly capable and popular  teacher, she will be missed by  both pupils and  parents.  Old timers here who remember the Roberts family from  which Roberts Creek was named  were very interested when the  three children of Harry Roberts  of Nelson Island paid.their first  visit here last week. The three  youngsters, Lee, Yolanna, and  Zoe, proved themselves true de-  scendents of the old pioneers,  making the trip from Nelson Island in a boat which they had  built themselves. It took them,  two days for the trip.  These interesting young people, born and brought up on an  island, know practically nothing  of city life and have never been  to a school. Their education has  been by correspondence courses,  but what they lack in knowledge  of modern civilization is more  than made up by their knowledge of wild life, forest and sea.  Their natural dignity and ease of  manner would make one wonder  if our much vaunted civilization  has so much to offer. While at  the Creek, the children paid a  visit to their uncle Mr William  'Bill'  Roberts.  You'll need no head-ache pills  or booze, if your ad is in The^  News.

He hinted there  may be a chance of the Board  taking up the challenge of raising initial payment re construction of the hospital' clinic, authorized by the  Hamilton  report.  The new president recalled a  many point program of successes  achieved by the trade body during  last  year's   activities.

Capturing the great animal  would have the same effect of  loss and great disappointment.  I told you there were funny  thoughts in my mind at this time  of the morning. I can hear again  Al Jackson telling about the time  when he arrived here in 1908. He  lived on the side of Elphinstone  then, and still remembers the  trip he made to Holy Joe's rocks  where Selma Park wharf now is.  It seems that ��.1 and his friend,  now sharpening saws for him,  had more than their share of  rough. times back in "them thar  days."
