No  sooner said than done. Rumour  has it���a real good rumour���that  August 18 will se the jim dandiest dance, complete with modern  orchestra; eats and just a general  opportunity to enjoy, dance put  on in the Mariann Hall. Officials  of the Kinsman Club assured at  least good piano music by getting  a pianer chuner to do the job  the other day. Proceeds will go  toward the club helping kids.  That's why they get free plugs  like this.  Most of the merchants on this  peninsula are wearing fairly reasonable smiles these days. Must  be that the visitor trade is holding up good or perhaps better  than was first expected. If the  merchants and the people of this  peninsula want it, they can assure themselves of good summer  trade every summer, if they only  do $ reasonable amount of promotion.  I guess most of you have seen  the new colored folders that are  now seeping their way into the  different clubs down through the  States and into the service stations in Vancouver. We are just  a little bit proud of that job. It  stacks with the best.  I had a visit from Dr. A. M.  Lowe the 'tuther day and it  seems he knows quite a bit about  stopes and faults and faces and  rounds and samples and runnings  and what haye you in the tunnels.   ._'..    ;;���'���  XWhen the doc gets going on the  old .da^g^gtf^He]^  some or the old mining towns  you. can just see the highgrader  heading down the trail with his  bundle on the back. There is  something peculiar about the  smell" of talk that centres around  drifts and samples and cuts and  veins and just plain colors and  coyotes holes. Once a man has  sampled the smell of sweating  underwear hanging up in the  bunkhouse of a cold night, he is  branded. Somewhere in his conversation there will crop out the  merest dusting of those days.  Men like the doc like to remember them.  As for me, I've been so long  around mother lodes that were  never found and Lost Dutchmen  that were just up the creek, I like  to listen to it all again.  Every trade has an industrial  vocabulary. Have you ever read  the prospectus put out on a swindle or investment ��� sometimes  they are branded with another  name. Each sentence is loaded  with words that mean nothing to  the ordinary Joe clutching a  twenty in his grimy little fist.  If you should like to , get an  earful of nothing, ask Tom Larson at the Bank of Montreal to  show you some of the pamphlets  he has for distribution. Put out  by investment syndicates to lure  the unwary dollar from Sandy's  shirt pocket, .they scare the poor  fellow away with their wondrous  mumble jumble that they call  trade talk.  ���Listen to . farmers talk about  virgin, stock and grafting and  budding and polonizing and  hardening and root pruning 'and  seeding and thinning and you  find-yourself lost in the maze.  Fishermen are even worse with  their double talk. Loggers start  off with rigging and guys and  line logging and caulks and yarding and scaling, booming and  topping leave you wondering.  Printers are even worse with  their foreign language which includes quoins and upper and lower case and leading and chases  and impressions :��� and lino and  .slugs and setting and italics and  Stymie and cuts.  ��� It is slowly getting so that a  man who just talks ordinary English in this specialized world is  left out to talk to himself. There  will probably come the day when  you see a man talking away to  no  one   and   answering  himself  nacla  Ex  ourns  ��r's Passing  LAST WEEK, Canada mourned the passing of one of its most  illustrious sons and the man who held the office of premier longer than any other in history, William Lyon MacKenzie  King, died at his home in Gatinau, Saturday.  Seventy-five years of age, the        GIBSONS���Sea Bus Lines, in a dramatic jump into the breach,  has assured Gambier Island of service following withdrawal of the Union Steamships schedule on Labor Day. Clark Gibson, partner in the Sea Bus Lines, when approached Friday by  Francis Drage, JP, on behalf of filling the gap due to be created  by   Union's   withdrawal   assured     ���   statesman was born in Ontario  and was the friend of great the.  world oyer.  Mr King led Canada through  the dark years of the war and  guided its destiny in the years  which followed with a hand that  was true and steady and seemed  always to be on the pulse of Canada.  Not a well-loved man by the  masses, he was still recognized  as the real heart of the Liberal  Party. A protege of Sir Wilfred  Laurier, he lived politics from  the day he entered on the floor  of parliament 29 years ago.  Tributes, verbal, written and  floral poured into the capital  where the ex-premier lay in  state. He was a personal friend  of their majesties, 'the King and  Queen.  Millions of words have been  written about the fapaous man  but he remained for ever a real  Canadian and dedicated his life  to the country he loved so well.  It^is Canada's lpss._; .  New Principal  For Elementary  GIBSONS ��� Dickson Faulkner  will be principal of the elementary school, according to a  decision recently made by the  appointments committee of the  school board. ��  Mr. Faulkner has previously  taught at Chilliwack and Texada  Island. He is a veteran with six  years in the army. His wife is  the former Miss G. Snow who  had previously taught at Sechelt.  Arno Ulmer was appointed to  Deserted Bay and Miss Jeanette  Luck to Division 5, Sechelt.  School's Fire Check  GIBSONS���New schools, when  completed, will be passed on  by the provincial firemarshal's  department according to word received by the sc^cipLTboardj. - ... $/  that a former decision voiced by  a local authority that "nothing  could be done for Gambier"  when present services had ceased "was not correct". We will do  what we'ean to assure transport  for residents of Gambier. Capt  Drage had requested a weekly  service from the Machigonne. Mr  Gibson reminded the Captain  that he could not come out and  assure^ such a service, but he did  assure at least two calls per week  following Union and Howe  Sound ferries withdrawal.  We are very pleased with  as  surances from Mr Gibson, Capt  Drage said, "sea bus lines has  been doing a good job, but with  this assurance from such an authority we can rest assured  again. I certainly appreciate the  generosity and public spirited-  ness of the Gibson Bros." Prior  to his discussion with Mr Gibson, Capt K. J. Drage conferred  with Mr Gerald Macbean of Union Steamships on that Company's decision to end service. A  discussion is in the offing between Drage and Mr Gibson in  an effort to iron out final details.  Fire Brigades Receive  Training Practise Here  GIBSONS.���This village and surrounding district now has an  "immensely improved" fire brigade following a two-day visit by  the provincial fire marshal's instructional unit.  Sechelt also received the same  benefits previous to the stay in  Gibsons of the three-man unit  under Jack Newell.  Both communities were given  the same treatment and courses  in ladder raising, ladder handling  and placing and staying thereon  once the flimsy stairs have been  raised.  Care and maintenance of hose  was a point stressed by the instructors. It was pointed out that  properly cared for hose could  last from 12 to 15 years and it is  possible to have it in operation  for nearly 30 years.  Duties of firemen were stressed with responsibility placed in  three categories of successive importance.  1. Saving of life immediately  a fire brigade reached the scene  of conflagration, was placed at  the top of the list by Mr. Newell.  2.. Stopping the fire from  spreading was the second consideration. This was to be done  with, the utmost despatch the instructor said, but was to be secondary to the actual saving of  life.  3. The last obligation of the  two local volunteer fire brigades  under Fred Mills, Sefchelt, and  Wilf Gray, Gibsons, was to put  the  fire out.  Both brigades were shpwn and  had the intricacies of fire extinguishers explained to them..  They were told of the various  properties and also in the manner  of their use under various circumstances.  Lectures included talks on first  aid.  The inspecting unit was high  in its praise of the work done by  back. You will be able to dismiss him with, "That fellow. Oh.  Don't go near him he's just an  ordinary guy."  the local groups in their construction of fire halls.  Sechelt now has a firehall completed with a newly overhauled  fire pump standing by. Material  for the red-roofed building situated close to the village centre  opposite the Davidson Marine  offices, was donated by local  merchants.  The work, as it is in Gibsons  was provided by the volunteers  themselves.  It may be recalled that the  same, instructional unit refused  to stay and continue its talk  during the last visit here.  In the words of Gibsons fire  chief Wilf Gray, "This is a true  criterion of the advancement  made in recent months by the  local group of men, all of whom  are taking a laudable interest in  their work."  Drage Elected School Rep,  Assures Help to Veterans  GAMBIER HARBOUR���-The ingredients of what may be. a pot  boiling are now all in the vessel, following a meeting of  ratepayers on  this  island which  elected   unanimously Francis  Drage, JP as School Representative.  Requested   representation of the  island  was  sent to the  Department of Education who authorized School  Inspector Lt  Col A. E. Burnett to carry out the election. Gambier Island now  becomes a school attendance area, aftermath of the agreement  reached during the  recent  bylaw battle.  ' Speaking   to   his   appointment ;��� ;       - ���  ' the ���������'leader--* df~" theXfightXagainst  two   bylaws,   warned  he   would  "do battle for two maiii projects."  1. "I will* do my utmost to assure proper schooling for the  children of Bowen and Gambier  Islands.  2. "I wish to point out that I  am still firmly intending .to see  that veteran and small pensioner  groups are given proper treatment by the School Board."  It is believed Drage was referring to the School Act clause  which assures needy and financially hard pressed pensioners of  relief from unbearable taxation  resulting from school tax increases.  Colonel Burnett lauded the  people of Gambier for the interest they have always taken in  school matters. He assured that  a school would be built (as has  been provided for in the recent  bylaw) "just as soon as there are  the required number of students  available." . The Act requires 8  children.  The inspector suggested it  would not be too long before the  required number were on the is-  (Continued   on Page  8)  Fish Prize to  J. H. Atkinson  Strawberries Could  Bring Record Crop  GIBSONS���Local fruit growers  may get 20 cents per pound  from strawberries sold to the  cannery here. This will be an  increase over returns from last  ,year but total farm returns to  individual growers could actually  be less owing to curtailment in  raspberry growing without compensating increase in strawberries.  With 30,997 pounds of strawberries treated in the cannery  this year according to Superintendent Fred Holland, actual  strawberry jam shipments  amounted to 1200 cases of the  famous product being shipped to  a Vancouver firm and then.for  distribution all over  Canada.  !  Gross take for the strawberry  crop to the cannery may amount  to $13,000, which after expenses  will be distributed among the 19  growers actually trading with the  plant.  With a six-person .staff, the  new cannery is now preparing to  handle the coming raspberry  crop which is expected to be less  in volume than last year. Reason  given by Mr. Holland is that  farmers find they could make  more nioney per acre from strawberries and therefore cut out several large plots of the cane berries.  L From the same source comes  information that blackberries  probably will be high in price  both this year and next. "Variety  is essential in successful operation of the cannery," said the  farmer superintendent remarking on the progress of the cannery from its small start many  years ago. s  Cannery      secretary      Robert  GIBSONS���J. H. Atkinson is now  $10 richer owing to his prowess  with rod and reel.  The local man, with a 21-pound  spring pink salmon, won July 18,  the weekly prize in the Kinsman  Salmon Derby.  This is the fourth weekly prize  issued by the derby committee  under chairman George Hunter.  Tickets can be bought from any  Kinsman or at the local fishing  floats, De Luxe or Wind and  Tide.  Proceeds, are to help Kinsmen  help kiddies.  Sechelt to Get  War Memorial  SECHELT.���Memory of the veterans who died during two  world wars will be carried in a  permanent marble cenotaph to  be erected on the triangle formed  by merger of the wharf and main  roads.  Branch 140, Canadian Legion,  has been assured of the land in  perpetuity by the provincial government, according to Secretary  Jack Mayne.  William Elliott, famous for his  interest in horticulture, has  promised to build and tend a garden to be formed within the iron  chains which will guard the cenotaph.  Burns was forceful in his objection to shipping the prime, product, known throughout the  American continent as being of  the best, without identifying  labels.  "We certainly should do something about advertising this  product," Mr. Burns said. "It  ranks second to none on the  market. We shall have to see  that proper labels are ready for  next year."  3DIAE3S  IHVHSI1 T* i. Readers Say .  SIR: ��� On your recent visit to  Gambier Harbor (Drageland)  you omitted two things���to lift  the well cover and take your  flashlight with you.  You know it has been said that  "Truth is to be found at the bottom of a well." You also must  have heard of the old philosopher  who went looking for an honest  man with a lantern? "  Maybe you have also heard an  old music  hall song which used  to go something like this:  Arid when  I tell them, and  I'm  certainly   going   to   tell   them  how WONDERFUL "I" am,  They'll never believe me, they'll  never believe me.  SOCRATES.  e JPi^nd T�� Tell  SECHELT  By "ARIES"  NOTICED in Sechelt recently,  Mrs. Louis Hansen with a  friend, Mrs. G. Carlson of Vancouver, visiting Mr. and Mrs.  Harold Nelson and Mr. and Mrs.  Neil Hansen.  Spending a few days holiday  in Vancouver is Mrs. Nels J��� Nelson.  Mrs. Jack Nelson and Sheila  returned from Victoria and  brought with them Mrs. Nelson's  niece, Margaret Ann Salmon, who  is enjoying her stay here with us.  Visiting Mrs. Brooker is. Mr.  and Mrs. Phil Conlyn with  daughters Shirley and Barbara  here from Vancouver.  We   notice  the  new home   on  the  Porpoise   Bay  Road   belonging to Mr. and Mrs. Walter McKissock is almost ready for  occupation, and very nice it looks.  We  understand that  Mr McKissock   will   operate   his   business  from now on and it will be better  all'round as there will always be  someone on call there.   We shall  miss   the   McKissocks   from   our  road but they won't be far away.  We haven't  any  Scotch   in  us  but we have always had a sneaking  liking  for the bagpipes and  can remember as a child "getting  all   wrought   up   over   the   pipe  band of the Gordon Highlanders.  And we do not have an opportunity  to  hear   the  pipes   often,  \ but    recently   a   young   man   of  ��� whom we are very fond did hini-  self proud and us too with a few  tunes.    If any of you heard them  it   was   yours     truly     being   so  honored  by   Johnnie  White,   the  son   of   Mr.   and    Mrs.   Norman  White    at    "Wits   End"   on   the  waterfront.      No    mean     piper,  Johnnie,     and   in   the    Seaforth  Highlanders also.  Michael Jervis has gone to Roberts Creek for a few days.  We ��� wish to welcome to the  village Mr. and Mrs. Scott Pollock who have recently pur-  . chased the Blanchard home here.  We are glad that the Blanchards  have not moved far away however as we should very much  miss their pleasant greeting  when they meet us.  The houses under construction  in the village are coming along  very well now, one of them for  Mrs. Stan Parker recently of  Prince Rupert, and another for  Mr.   and  Mrs.  Fred Mills.  Noticed admiring the scenery  of Sechelt Inlet was Captain Ro-  vick an oldtimer from Prince  Rupert.  We were pleased to have a, call  from Mr. and Mrs. H. W. Henry,  well known to us for many years  and again staying at the Inn.  We  hear   that   Miss   Moncrief,   who  also stayed here for many years,  is now in England  for  a year's  vacation.      Many    people    have  missed   her   this   summer.     The  Henrys find lots of changes with  regard  to   the   building   activity  and still think Sechelt is tops as  far as vacation land is concerned.  Our attention has  been  called  to  the  disgraceful way some of  CONGRATULATIONS to the farmers on their  collective efforts in getting their strawberry  crop sold. It is always, and probably will always,  be a relief to see the last berry going into the  copper pots. There is a gamble in farming that  would seldom be taken by anyone other than a  gentleman really careless with odds.  Our local farmers are the same as they in  the paddy fields or the Nile mud flats or the  Zuyder Zee Marshes or the Veldt or the Crofter  in the Urals. They are forever optimists and believers in the Good Lord.  But, and we say this with full knowledge of  the average farmer's dislike for outside hindrance  or help, there is one thing that should be done  which can help the odds and the price of berries.  The expected 20 cents per pound for strawberries this year is really a good price. No farmer  in his right mind can kick at that, but our farmers are unique, they can easily get more.  With a world championship under their belts  and the product such as that produced at the cannery this year and in years past and quite probably for years to come, our farmers can make far  better than 20 cents a pound. They, when ordinary farmers  are getting 20 cents,  can easily be  getting at least 10 percent more.  By advertising, is the answer.  Every can of jam ��� 1200 cases ��� that went  out those big doors in the last three weeks was  anonymous.    The cannery,   ably  and  with  seeming intent aforethought, actually cut the price of  their own product several cents'on the dry pound  of berries. *  They failed to "sell" their own, million-dollar commodity. We contend, and cannery officials  like Robert Burns and Fred* Holland agree, that  Hide' \ol Your Light  FROM EVERY  hand we hear of  the  versatility  and "go ahead" attitude of our good friends  to the south. We find nothing wrong with that.  With what we do find fault is the Sechelt Peninsula  Boards  of Trade   in  not   copying,   to some  small degree, the progressive American attitude.  They,   the   gentlemen  from   the  south,   have  virtually created and then nurtured a great industry: the industry of catering* to their own tourists. They make millions out of themselves. They  jar millions   out of their own collective pockets  by virtue" of sheer, mostly unfounded propaganda.  These friends of ours to the south have been subjected to the tourist spending craze so long they  actually believe it essential to individually  save  ud all year in order for them to take two weeks  off and spend the savings/ ���  Believe it or not, people from the south actually think they have to have money to enjoy  themselves. They believe, with an unalterable  faith, they must spend to have fun.  This is hardly a sign of their stupidity, but  only a tribute to the effectiveness of their own  propaganda. ���  From Blaine, Washington, to much vaunted  Tia Jusna on the Mexican border, approximately  1700 miles, lies some of the most desolate and uninspiring country in the whole' of the United  States. Yet. literally billions of dollars have been  spent in bringing people to see the beauties of  this'stretch which includes Golden California.  We would, without rancour, suggest it would  take millions of dollars to induce people to visit,  again, the famed San Fernando Valley. In the  words of a recent visitor, "this valley is a barren  desert on hills." Yet it lures milliions of visitors  every year. A great tribute to propaganda and the  fine wording of a little song. These same visitors  spend countless dollars every year in the San  Fernrmdo Valley.  The same story applies  to  practically every  every jar or can of fruit that went out those  doors should have proudly borne a distinctive  "Gibsons Pack" for all the world to see.  This product need never ask, it can demand,  a premium. With proper promotion the Gibsons  Pack jams can become world famous. They are  worthy of it.  Many of our world famous products are that  because of propaganda alone. Not so the Gibsons  Pack.  . There, is the one commodity born on this peninsula which can bring more publicity per pound  than anything we have. And the cannery, for at  least two years, has done nothing about it.  We suggest that cannery members are not  primarily publicists. But we would suggest they  are willing to accept more money for their product and yet they, by not doing a proper job of  advertising, are actually giving the jam away at  less than it is worth.  If they wish to be philanthropists, we bow to  their superior motive. But if they are going to be  successful farmers we would suggest they take a  very serious view of letting such a famous jam  go outside the gates of this area without branding  ., it well. That type of advertising costs nothing. It  is invaluable in that it identifies the product to  thousands of users and it brands indelibly in the  mind of every buyer the name, Gibsons Pack.  We realize the officials are desirous of doing  something about this type t)f advertising and we  cannot too strongly stress the importance of such  a move.  In a very few years the Gibsons Pack will be  so   famous  it   can ��� demand   and  certainly   get,   a  premium which will, in turn, reflect on  that 20  cents per pound to the farmer and make it read 23.  Friends, hide not your light.  part of California. Not desert throughout, it yet  has nothing, absolutely nothing, to compare with  scenery to be found right here on the Sechelt  Peninsula.   '  It takes millions to lure the visitor to- many  ��� parts of the States., but it would only take a start  to bring millions to this Peninsula. With what we  have here compared to what they have in the  United States, visitors, like the famed Capistrano  swallows, would return each year and bring with  them, friends and relatives.  The Sechelt Peninsula has the greatest, most  inspiring settings and views on this North American continent. It has what the Americans want  and will pay good treasury ��� diplomas to look at.  But it keeps it a great secret.  What we need here is more belief in ourselves. Less talk about what have we to offer?  First of all let us look at bur surroundings.  Let us take a new view of what God has given us.  Let us compare it to what our friends pay money  to see. Let us renew faith in ourselves and our  environment.  Leave "^us build signs that say,. "Welcome to  the Peninsula, Friends." Let us tell ourselves  every day, we are the luckiest people on earth in  living on the Peninsula. Let us believe that our  friends are welcome. Let us think that every day  and we will find it has its effect on the world.  We need not build a better mousetrap. We  have the best given to us. Let us not hide it in  the basement of selfishness.  Let "the light of publicity and word of mouth  shine out.  Stand clear, Sechelt Peninsula. The world  will certainly beat a path to this door. Hold it  o*-��en wide, and welcome with a smile. Enough  of this foolish introversion. We have the best, let  us announce it to the world and then stop worrying about the price of fish, forest strikes and the  cost of lumber in  Europe.  CJta KLtmsA ��fshw pit.

A favorite place  for this pastime is up  by   the  rocks   in   the   little  trail  near    the    Anglican  church  between Fleck and Burley summer  homes.   Now it is not always the  crowds from  the boats but carloads from the beer parlors come  down to this   point where  they  cannot   be seen  from  the  roads  and where the constable can be  seen coming.

The Ladies' Aid society of St.  Aiden's church held a garden tea  and sale of home cooking, July  20, at the home of Mrs. Downs.  The V.O.N, will hold its tea on  August 2 at the home of Mrs.  Clark, from 2 to 4 p.m.  The ladies of the United  Church are scheduled to hold  their garden party on August 11,  at the home of Mrs. McMahon.  On July 28 a bonfire and beach  party was held under auspices  of the P.T.A. This took place on  MacFarlane's beach. There was  community singing, sale of pop,  coffee and hot dogs.  In addition to all these social  functions, we must not forget the  Saturday night dances at the  Community Hall. These have  been very well patronized this  summer, and the proceeds will <  be used to defray the. cost of im- (  provements to the hall.  Another innovation' introduced ;  by the enterprising hall board is  the Wednesday night dance. At  these occasions there will be in- !  struction given in the art of  square dancing. An orchestra  will provide the music alternately with a recording machine. A  small fee will be charged. Nobody can say that Roberts Creek  is not abreast with the times.  An afternoon tea party was  held recently at the home of Mrs.  P. Edmunds, the occasion being  Mrs. Edmunds birthday. Mrs.  Paul Soukovyoff presided, assisted by Mrs. Ralph Cotton, and  Mrs. Edmund's grand-daughter  Anne.

POTTERY PRECAUTIONS  Cracked and chipped dishes,  cups and drinking glasses are a  hazard in home or restaurant.  Such equipment cannot be properly sterilized and provides a  natural rallying point for germs  and bacteria.

Troubles don't come singly,  now Mrs. Deal is sick, she is Mrs.  Nickson's daughter, and Mrs.  Nickson is very low herself, it is  sure a busy household.  We are all very sorry to hear  of the death of one of the oldest  pioneers. Mrs. Helen Thompson  at the age of 94. Her husband  and her homesteaded on. the  water-front here, when " they  were over sixty.  Met the newly-weds, the young  Cauldwells, I hope they decide  to stay here.

A good way to help to combat  the high cost of meat, is, don't  look at the bill until after you  eat it. Then, if you cannot recite  the twenty-third Psalm, just  jump in the lake.  mm****-  FREEDOM was brief but exciting for this monkey who escaped from Toronto pet shop. He  nonchalantly sat on front lawns  while children fed him candy.  But police captured him with a  net, put him in jail. He was having such a fine time swinging  from bar to bar that police had  to capture him a second time,  and return him to the pet shop  where he is shown here, properly subdued in a bird cage.  COOL COOKING  MEAT ALWAYS takes a considerable slice out of any household budget and so the matter of  meat looms large among the  problems of the honemaker.  Unfortunately for the economy  of many establishments, there is  one group of meats that are too  often forgotten when marketing.  Liver, kidney, heart and tongue  may be served in many ways and  truly deserve the name "variety  meats" by which they are sometimes known. Calves' liver has  reached the luxury class since  knowledge of nutritive values  has become general. Beef and  pork, liver, althought not so delicate in flavor, offer equal food  value at lower cost. Broiled kidneys are considered a gourmets'  delight.  Here are some excellent suggestions for using these economy  meats. They will act as first aid  to ailing budgets and at the same  time be enjoyed by the whole  family. The recipes come from  the Consumer Section, Canada  Department of Agriculture.  KIDNEY CREOLE  1 beef kidney  y_ cup flour  1 large  onion,  minced  V\ cup' fat  Wz cups canned tomatoes  2 cups boiling water  Vz teaspoon  Worcestershire  sauce  Salt   and  pepper   and   other  seasoning as desired.  Wash kidney, cut away fat,  tubes and membrane. Slice and  dredge with flour. Brown kidney  and onion in hot fat. Add tomatoes, water and seasonings, cover tightly and simmer until meat  is tender, about Wz hours. Serve  on toast. Yield: six servings.

The WCCC  is to be congratulated on what  may be termed the best and easily the most enjoyable party ever  held around these parts, and  that goes for the Hub too. The  chief contributing factors were,  the fine selection of music,  through the efforts of Henry  Begg and his wonderful machine,  the flood lights on the wharf, for  which we are indebted to Ron  Whittaker and Vic Franske, past  and present owners of the Trad-  "Old at 40,50,60?"  ��� Man; You're Crazy  Forget your age I Thousands are peppy at 70.

A few sets of  square dances, along with some  old time dances, were enjoyed on  the wharf, while the hot-dogs,  pop, tea and coffee around the  fires was a stunning success.  Mention of Jack Whittaker and  his two henchmen, should be  made as they were responsible  for the hammering down of thousands of nails which had worked  loose on the wharf. Nearly two  hundred people attended.  I don't know if it's the air at  Wilson Creek, or just the community spirit of its people, but  in last week's issue, if you remember, I gave you the names of  several people in the sick bay. It  was gratifying to see some of  them well enough to take in the  beach party. Mrs Jean Scott,  Gladys Ritchie, Mr and Mrs Norburn, and Mrs A. Johnston, all  came down for a spell. And not  to be outdone, Mrs H. Begg took  it all in from the cushion laden  divan on the porch of her home.  The many friends of Mrs Myd-  ska will be pleased to learn of  her presence at Davies Bay after  her long and painful illness in  the city. She is now at her summer residence for a change and  rest. Accompanying her are Mrs  Olsen and son Arne. They intend  staying most of the summer.  There has been quite a number of questions asked regarding  the new float and its purposes. I  have selected a couple which I  think are most important. First,  who will be held responsible for  any or all accidents which might  occur on said float, as one youngster narrowly missed a severe  injury when the sole of his shoe  was caught" between the ramp  and the float. On another occasion a big wire-haired terrier was  standing on th�� float when a  swell lifted the structure and  toppled him into the briny. This  just as well might have been a  child.  On another occasion four or  five older boys were rocking and  swaying a boat to the danger  point, 'used it for a diving board, ,  then finally cut the craft loose  from its moorings. Its owner had"  spent over eight months building  this craft, but now has to reyert  back to dragging it up and down  the rocky beach in front of his  home, in order to be on the safe  side. We do not wish to spoil the  kids' fun so perhaps the parents  would not mind giving their offspring a few words of advice  and warning.  Next Saturday is Sports Day  at Wilson Creek.

Now some birds on telephone  wires like to stay,  In hopes they may pick up some  message that way.  And other birds ponder the Sun  or Coast News,  But not one of these get such  int'resting views  As the birdie that nests in the  grapevine.  He hears when we come, and he  sees when we go,  He knows a most terrible lot that  ain't so.  And all this, and more of it goes  in his song,  And all of us listen and help him  along,  That wee birdie that nests in the  grapevine.  NAnd though we may threaten  to shoot the poor thing,  So never again he may whistle or  sing,  He's still just as busy, come wind,  rain or snow,  And really we'd miss him if he  were to go,  That birdie who nests in the  grapevine.  WINIFRED M. NEW,  Gibsons, B.C.  A BUDGET BOLSTER  Skim milk is a winner with  the pocketbook and also with nutrition. It has protein, calcium  and riboflavin, the same as whole  milk and it has particular advantages for those who are overweight and trying to cut the caloric  corners.  Practical Hints on  Budget Conservation  They're alike in many ways���  budgets and rivers. Sometimes  they're full and run smoothly; at  other times they just dry up.  Very often ��� as with rivers ���  it's a seasonal problem.- ���  Many Bank of Montreal customers have come across it. Some  have found that Christmas ex-,  penses make January a "thin  month". Others have experienced a shortage of ready cash after  paying insurance premiums or  mortgage interest. And they've  worked out a solution along conservative lines.  This is the way they dam the  river. They open a "special purposes" account. Each pay day  they deposit a fixed percentage  of their major commitments, and  then, when the time for heavy  payments comes around, they can  make them without undue strain.  If this idea appeals to you,  why not come in and talk it over  with Neil Sutherland, the accountant at your local branch of  the B of M? He'll be glad to  help you open your own "special purposes" account. Advt.  FOR SALE  Tools: Carpenters saws, chisels, master square.

GAMBIER HARBOUR  By   Glenwood  THIS little island was the scene  of a big "ado" recently when  Major George Styles, provincial  president of the Army and Navy  Veterans paid a visit, accompanied by his very gracious wife..  With the major and on an  official courtesy call were several  of the provincial command's  senior officers.    Business of the  local unit was discussed with  President Francis Drage, J.P.,  and an inspection of the new  addition made.  Major Styles expressed approval of the progress made on  the extension which is now near-  ing the second stage. Material  and labor has been donated with  the result that total cost to the  veteran group will be light.  Captain Drage has been his  usual successful self in raising  money and equipment. Many  companies and individuals have  expressed their appreciation of  past favours from veterans in  granting lighting equipment,  building materials and even the  freight has been donated. A complete list of these generous peoples will be printed in a future  issue of the Coast News.  Doug Cannel donated a fine  piece of art work in the form of  a unit crest to the Veterans' Hall,  here.'  And now to a report on social  activities.

There really is no need for any  doubt about the matter, if we can  agree on what we mean by standards of living. Most of us believe  that the standard of living is  measured in terms of ordinary  comforts and luxuries. In these  terms, advertising has done much  toward improving our lot.  When we stop to consider, it  truly is miraculous how speedily  any useful new invention becomes popular nowadays. Only  forty years ago, it was a comparatively slow process to introduce  a   new product,  no  matter  how desirable. One hundred  years ago it was almost impossible to market a new -article  rapidly. Living standards advanced much more slowly in  those days.  The development of modern  advertising has been largely responsible for this change. Of  course, there have been many  other improvements in business  besides the development of advertising but none of them are as  important as advertising in promoting new ideas and creating  new demands.  Nothing can be sold unless  there is a demand for it. Human  being are born with only the  most primitive demands and the  modern consumer buys only that  which he had learned to want.  Today, much of our learning to  want new things comes from  advertising.

It was pointed out that a public meeting this fall will have  the opportunity of again electing  representatives, - who, in turn,  will elect a slate of trustees to  run the affairs of School District  46. Newly appointed Captain  Drage will be a candidate for  this election, provided his recent  appointment is upheld again at  the public meeting. By this  means only can he be placed on  the  actual school board.  Sandy Lamont  Now Married  GIBSONS���A pretty wedding of  interest to the peninsula took  place in the Church of the Woods,  Caulfield, West Vancouver, when  Rev Mr W. Valentine united in  marriage Babe, eldest daughter  of Mr. and Mrs. Yacovitch, Horseshoe Bay, and Mr. Samuel Lamont, Gibsons.  Samuel (Sandy) Lamont is the  son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Lamont of Ulster Villa, here.  For the occasion the bride wore  the traditional white gown with  trailing veil and carried a bou  quet of stepholas and roses. Sister of the bride was flower girl.  Miss Adel Roe attended the  bride, while Mr. Melvin Glessing  interested by ordinary news  about the invention of some  clever household convenience, we  are not inspired to do anything  about buying it until advertising  has translated the idea into terms  of our own personal use.  During the present century we  have adopted many new things  which add to our enjoyment of  life. Almost none of them could  have been introduced to general  use quickly without the aid of  advertising to stimulate our interest and desire.  Take radios for example. When  radios were first put on the market, they swept the country. On  the. other hand, when phonographs were first introduced, it  took a long time to popularize  them. Yet the first radio sets  were certainly no better than the  first Dhon'ographs. The important difference was that more and  better advertising was used in  selling the radio sets. When  phonographs were first placed on  sale advertising was still in its  swaddling clothes.  ^ When washing machines were  introduced to housewives, they  were advertised only in a limited  way as compared with vacuum  sweepers, which came much later.  As a result, washing machines  came into use much more slowly  than the more highly advertised  vacuum sweepers, although both  are now indispensable.  In merchandising food products, the evolution from the  cracker box and molasses barrel  to the sanitary, attractive packaging of today is largely due to  the influence of advertising.  We are Glad to  Retract This  GIBSONS   ��� Clarification   of  a  Coast News editorial has been  requested by N. Richard McKibbin.  According to. Mr. McKibbin the  editorial wrongly credited him  with doing the "lion's share" of  the work in relation to a dental  committee set up by request of  the. school board.  Said the insurance salesman.  "It is hardly correct to s'ay that  I did the lion's share as we have  all done a tremendous amount of  work in trying to settle this dental question. I feel the editorial  made me look as if I had done  all the hard work whereas actually many of the members had  done more."  We are glad to retract this type  of error. We are glad we .have  a person who would take exception to flattery, despite the fact  we know our assertion was at  least partially true.  The dental committee, which  has practically answered the  problem facing students here, is  composed of the following hard  working and certainly sincere  members: Mrs. Margaret Swan,  Mrs. D. Dando, Norman Hough,  A. Funnell, A. E. Ritchey, N.  Richard McKibbin and Dr. Hugh  Inglis.  was best man.  A reception at the bride's home  was held following the ceremony  when approximately 100 guests  attended. Following the reception a dance was held to honor  Mr. and Mrs. Lamont, in the  Community Hall, Horseshoe Bay.  Following a honeymoon at  Victoria they will reside in Vancouver.  _OM_  BOWEN ISLAND  By PEARL PUNNETT  MRS  J.
