Mr. Green, tall, silver haired,  gentlemanly in manner and quiet  of voice, smiles very easily. I  liked the way he paid tribute to  the newspaper men he had met  . in Ottawa. "I was surprised and  amazed at the attitude of honesty  and serious consideration these  men took to their job," he said  earnestly. This would lead a person tb think that he had previously thought otherwise. But  I forgave him, for my part, when  he unconsciously showed he was  serious.  This could lead to what do  most people think about newspapermen? It would be surprising to find the number who are  firmly convinced that* they run  around with a glass of rye highball in one hand, a pencil stuck  behind each ear, a notebook in  one hand and driving the car���a  sleezy, low, mud splattered Chev  with a souped up Cadillac motor  under the hood.

When I shook hands with Mr.  Green as I was leaving, I thought  if a man of his knowledge and  fairmindedness (outside Conservative matters that is) could have  something in his mind other than  that reporters were honest, what  would people like you and me  think about it?  While on the subject of the  long M.P. we would respectively  bring to the attention of all, that  Mr. Green has been the spearhead  of practically every move toward  benefiting veterans.

Francis Drage, JP, president of the Army, Navy and Air-  force Unit, has lit the bonfires for help in a regular old fashioned barn raising. Only this time it will be the new extension to  the veterans7 hall.  It is urged that every person  interested in this project be at.  Gibsons main wharf at 8 a.m.  Sunday, August 13. That is next  Sunday morning.  In announcing the gathering  which will be supplied with  light refreshments and sandwiches, the unit president pointed out that any person wishing  to bring his own hammer, saw or  rule would be more than welcome. It is not essential to have  tools, he said. Everyone will be  needed.  Exclusive to The Coast News  It is hoped to have the roof  and steps built by the time the  gang has finished. Equipment is  ready to line the inside and it  may be possible to have some of  that done by the time darkness  falls.  "There is one person to whom  .1 would like to give a lot of  credit," said Captain Drage, "and  that is F. E. Crossman who has  volunteered to donate a power  plant sufficient in size to light  the complete hall."  . "That was one of the most  generous offers we have had for  a long time. And, believe me,"  he said, "we have had some fine  offers and donations since I started to promote this, only a few  weeks ago.  "Everyone I have approached,  including large and small companies in Vancouver, have been  absolutely grand."  A complete list of donors and  the part they played in the new  hall will be published in a future  issue of the Coast News.  Drage To  Veterans7  Fight For  Widows  .��_i'.:r.,VpJ;.-a  GIBSONS;���-Army and Navy Veterans in Canada are trying to  put sharp edges on statutory teeth dealing with traitors.  At the quarterly meeting of the B.C. Command, a resolution was unanimously passed forbidding Communists or 7/they  who are interested in the overthrow by force of our constitutional authority/7 to belong to the veterans7 group.  Francis Drage, J.P., was elect-     :   ed chairman of a committee  charged with approaching the  minister of health with a view to  having widows of veterans relieved of payment for hospital  services. It was pointed out by  Major John Heath, Gambier  Island, that prisoners (criminal  division) when taken sick in jail,  do not have to pay their hospital  fees. It was" suggested that the  government, if it could help out  able bodied prisoners, should certainly help widows of men who  had died for their country.  ��� Soldiers who are buried over-  Military Training Is  Urged By Local Vets  GIBSONS���A strong resolution, urging complete and 7/witb no  exception77 compulsory military training* for males between the ages of .18 and 21 years of age will be sent to Dominion convention of the Army, Navy and Airforce Veterans in  Canada, backed by- local members.  Major John   Heath,   Jack  Ad  kins and Captain Francis Drage,  J.P., attending provincial command quarterly meeting, urged  the Dominion convention to, in  turn, urge ihe Dominion government to commence immediate  conscription.  Captain Drage, supporting the4  suggestion at the well attended  meeting, urged that owing to the  state of war now in Korea and  the influence it may have on  Canada, 'the Dominion government should take steps to assure  this country of "being at least  prepared for any emergency.  Brigadier Sutherland Brown-,  C.M.G., D.S.O., recalled early  conscription, days in the Imperial  army when,- back in the early  18th century conscription had  saved the day when instituted  early enough. He contended the  same policy would pay dividends  now.  He warned that quite probably  the new Defence of Canada Act  would preclude any compulsory  training without first an emergency or an act of parliament.  Captain Drage, backed by Jack  Adkins, pointed out that Britain  was now on the defensive in  many - points on the globe.  "America is even now at war.  She is our nearest and finest of  neighbors, what affects her must  have a tremendous bearing on  this country. We must be prepared. This move (the resolution) is vital to our well being."  The meeting endorsed the  resolution. Copies will be sent  to all M.L.A.'s and M.P.'s.  Housie, Housie, the "old army  game," outlawed in veterans'  units by provincial laws, was  strongly defended by the meeting. J. H. MacLeod, warned that  the law would hardly forgive any  breaches, and urged that other  methods be used in attempting to  raise money for the various units'  social and welfare services.  seas will have their regimental  designation on tombstones if  veterans have their way.  A recent report on war graves  emphasized that wherever applicable the name Infantry Corps  would apepar on gravestones.  Veterans here decided to have  the name of the regiment printed  instead of the all encompassing  expression Infantry Corps.  Sechelt Gels  ��� _  Free Inhalalor  SECHELT ��� This community's  fire brigade can now act as  emergency first aid squad, complete with inhalator and knowledge on how to use the equipment.  .. Donated by an anonymous  donor, the inhalator will be kept  in the office of Board of Trade  president Ken  Whitaker.  The gift will mean that the  brigade, just; recently finished  completing the new fire hall, will  now have to take first aid lessons from both Fire Chief Fred  Mills and Harry Billingsley.  "This," said the fire chief, "will  fill a very great need in this community. We are grateful to the  man who supplied this instrument of. saving lives. It was a  real humanitarian touch and will  undoubtedly be of great value.  Legion Ladies' Party  GIBSONS���A beach party held  at the home of Mrs. George  Hill ahd sponsored by the W.A.  to the Canadian Legion Branch-  109 turned out to be "a very successful affair."  More than 15 members attend--  ed while entertainment was provided by "canned music" from  the Gibsons Kinsman Club PA  system operated by Jules (Joe)  Schutz.  The ladies gathered around the  huge bonfire and served hot dogs,  hamburgers and coffee.  that  GIBSONS���Fear, held by the Public Utilities Commission,  a later request may be made for a subsidy, is all that stops  immediate7  inauguration  of a  insula.  1. There is now in being, a six-  man group of business men  "ready and willing to immediately start a ferry operating from  the Whytecliff area to somewhere on the Peninsula.  2. This group now has a ship  which, 'with minor alterations',  can go into service.  3. "We   want,"   says  a spokes-  ��� man,   "a   non   competitive   franchise for some time. We are quite  willing to let the   PUC  set  the  rates."  4. "We are willing to operate  a- car ferry from Stillwater to the  Pender Harbour area, within one  year of -operations commencing  on the Gibsons Whytecliff run,"  said Norman Harvey, speaking  on behalf of the group.  5. "The Public Utilities Commission," said B. M. Maclntyre,  MLA, "will not grant a license  until assured that a subsidy will  not later be requested."  6. Negotiations,     started     last  November, have reached  a tern- .  porary   stalemate,   pending   possible   acceptance   of   even    these  conditions by the   business  unit.  First move in the series which  may ultimately end in the long  sought ferry to this Peninsula,  started when Lawyer Reg McDougall, and Norman Harvey,  aided by Mr Maclntyre, approached the Honorable the Minister of Public Works E. C. Carlson, ..with a..view to having^, him  declare'this area a Ferry District.  It was under this act the group  made first overtures.  Said Mr Harvey, "The government was very appreciative of  the idea but it seemed to cool off  following transfer, by Mr Carson, of our plan to the Public  Utilities   Commission."  Mr Carson can, by order in  council, authorize the terry without sanction from the PUC. This,  he seemed to prefer not to do,  following his discussions with  the cabinet.  Mr Maclntyre then aporoached  the government on behalf of the  originators, "but I ran ud against  the point made by Dr W. A. Car-  rothers that they (the PUC)  would be quite prepared to grant  the franchise under the conditions requested, provided assurance was given that the Car Ferry Company would not request,  at some future date, a subsidy to  help keep  in operation.  "The Peninsula could easily be  another suburb of Vancouver,  provided a car ferry could be inaugurated," said Mr Harvey in  an exclusive interview with this  paper.  "In this plan of ours, we know  we  would not make  money  for  (Continued  oh  Page   2)  car  ferry to the Sechelt  Pen-  iroves  Two Resolutions  GIBSONS  ���  Village  Council  approved a resolution from  Cranberry Municipal Council  urging the government not to  reconsider re distribution or  withdrawal of the three percent S.S. and M.A. Tax.  This move had been hinted  |by Premier Byron Johnston at  -he last session, when he was  being pushed by higher school  taxes and objections to same.  The premier had threatened  to withdraw the tax and spend  it exclusively on education. 'r  Village Fathers also endorsed a resolution from the  same source urging that municipalities with less than 2500  populations be governed by  three commissioners instead  of the proposed five.  This move will require an  amendment to the Village  Municipalities Act. It is hardly  expected it will take effect before the next session.  Pender Regalia  To he Festive  PENDER    HARBOUR.  ��� Ernie  Carpenter, chairman of the  decorated boats committee of the  regatta committee of the Pender  Harbour Board of Trade recently  had a few words to say in regard  to his pet scheme.  "We want to see everyone who  owns or can borrow a boat, in  that parade of festive ships.  There are three cups to be competed for," Jie reports. "One for  the best decorated, another for  the most comical and the other  will handle the most novel boat  pertaining to the sea."  Mr. Carpenter failed to clarify  that last entry.  In' his release, the chairman  urges everyone to get started  decorating or at least planning  for the opening event now.  "August 19 will be here before  we know it. We want to have  everyone entered. This parade  can easily be the best of its kind  in B.C. provided everyone gets  behind it.  Gibsons Folders Now  Busy Spreading Word  GIBSONS���Ten thousand folders are now in process of distribution throughout the western states and Vancouver, telling the world about the beauties of this community and its relationship to famous Salmon Rock,  donated the money and sponsored      ���   by the Gibsons and District  Board of Trade, the two-color  folder includes pictures by Gordon Ballentine, local professional  photographer while copy was  written by the editor of this  paper.  Pacific Stage Lilies have a  special display of folders centred by the Gibsons green, white  and black five-fold pamphlet.  The bus company will spread the  news by means of a thousand  requested fAn^-id---_,A -m p^a^mTME^.  Local merchants have xbeen  supplied with a number o.t .these  folders. Most of which are being sent to relatives and friends  of Gibsons and district residents.  It is considered to be one of the  best means of publicity authorized in recent years.  Sechelt has authorized a folder,  of different calibre, depicting the  beauties of that locality. So far  this elaborate work is still in the  planning stage.  J_H��H8n IVID-HAOHd Readers Say . ��� ���  SIR,���I  am   a  visitor  staying  at  Sechelt for three weeks which  has been my custom for many  years. I have always thought it  was the nicest place for one to  spend a restful vacation, away  from the turmoils of the city.  This idea was exploded on Saturday night, July 29, when, I  think, all the hooligans of the  peninsula were let loose. I am  told it was the Legion having  - some kind of a weekly celebration. To me, in the early hours  of the morning, it sounded like  wild animals were let loose.  No one wants to be a killjoy,  but there is such a thing as common decency and when drinking  gets to this pitch it is time something was done about it.  Where are the Legion officials?  Yours truly,  MRS. STANLEY INGRAM.  MORE ABOUT . . .  CAR FERRY LOOfVIS  (Continued from Page 1)  some time, but we are also aware  that the future of the area depends on such a service. Someday, ' with the potential of the  Peninsula behind it, a car ferry  would surely pay. We are ready  to gamble on that. We think a  car ferry would help get better  roads, by virtue of increased  traffic.  "Naturally, we want a non  competetive agreement for some  time but we would be quite willing to have our rates approved  by the PUC. Our ship is ready  for final retouching, while a ship  building company can start work  right   away."  In summing up. Mr Maclntyre  pointed out he had done what he  could toward helping make the  plan a reality.  "I am still ready and willing  to do what I can toward getting  this ferry started," he said. "I  am sorry to see it stopped, but if  the company will agree to refrain from requesting a subsidy,  I believe the car ferry can be  put into operation, with PUC approval, in the very near future."  Bowen Island  By   PEARL   PUNNETT  MR SAM  Kinniston  returned to  Vancouver   and   to   work   last  week   after   a   month's     holiday  here.    .  The members of the Bowen  Lawn Bowling Club held their  annual picnic on July 29 at  Mount Gardiner Park, being the  guests of Mr and Mrs Alec Morrison.

Hope" she will soon  be  well and home again.  /,  By E. NESTMAN  A MaJ��r JPrnMem  MUCH CREDIT is  due Gibson brothers,  owners  of Sea Bus Lines in their very prompt acceptance of a public responsibility, and their attitude  of helping the helpless even when it may cause  them inconvenience.  Within seconds following the news that Union  Steamships may be withdrawing all service, including Howe Sound Ferries, in September, Clark  Gibson had assured Captain Francis Drage, JP,  that "the Machigonne will make at least two  trips per week into Gambier Harbour."  Withdrawal of the Union steamers meant  that Gambier was without passenger or mail service. Mr Gibson's prompt acceptance of the responsibility on behalf of his company is one of  the bright spots in an otherwise dull transport  picture for the Sechelt Peninsula.  Reason for Union withdrawal has been suggested as failure to win a subsidy for the Howe  Sound run���for which application was made to  the Department of Transport, recently.  In a statement to The Coast News, Gerald  McBean, Union president, points out that it is  economically impossible for his company to operate following proyincial government granting of  a license to Sea Bus Lines and the subsequent  drop in revenue.  The company president also suggested that  service for the West Howe Sound area was quite  probably a provincial responsibility since it would  now be impossible for" another company to come  and operate at a profit.  He also points out that the company's decision to cease operation on Labour Day is "not yet  definite". But it is believed it will be so.  Dark indeed is the transport picture for visitors wishing to spend a summer holiday on the  Sechelt Peninsula.  There is no hope that the Machigonne can  handle the spate of summer visitors. Without the  Union steamers arriving daily, it may be that  would-be holidayers   will   have   to stand  on the  Dig, Brother, Dig  FOLLOWING  several years of futile promotion  and over  the objections  of many, the   new  firehall is at long last taking shape by the Village  Pumphouse.  Practically every bit of credit is entirely due  the efforts of the men who have dedicated their  time to helping save your property. Despite a  heavy season of private work for the majority,  they have turned out faithfully to help build, first  a fire brigade which can be of use to the community and secondly a firehall wherein to store  and house the equipment they will have to help  pay  for by their own efforts.  Much credit is due these men under the energetic leadership of Wilf Gray. Money, which is  essential to even these versatile and promotion  conscious young men, comes from two village  grants and a fund started some time ago by the  Ratepayers'  Association.  But more money will be needed long before  the final chair has been added to the "ready"  room which will be part of the new hall. It  would ill become any merchant to turn down  these money-raising schemes.  It may be recalled that the ashes of remorse  wharf for hours at Horseshoe Bay.  Hints have been received that Gulf Lines may  quite probably start a daily service to Gibsons  this fall. We hope such is the case. Not so much  to assure our services to Vancouver���Sea Bus can  do that quite capably during the winter���but to  help with the summer traffic which can, usually  for four or five week-ends during the summer's  height, be tremendous.  Despite the assertions and the-revived sense  of public relations evinced by the Gulf Lines, with  which we have no quarrel, it is still physically  impossible for that service to make money on the  Vancouver-Gibsons run.  It is argued that, the Gibsons-Vancouver leg  will be part of the main run to Powell River.  From our point of view that is the only hope for  continuation of that service if it does start. But  we will also forecast that this is not what the  visitor needs.  We, on the Peninsula, must have, by virtue  of our very gearing for summer visitors only,  a big ship service which will cater to visitors  leaving Vancouver in the morning and returning  fairly late at night. ,,  This is economically impossible so we find  ourselves hoping that the Gulf Lines will stay,'  this time, long enough to handle our influx of  visitors during the summer and run at practically  a loss during the remainder of the year.  -     We all must have faith in some sort of Santa  Claus.  We suggest that the three boards of trade assign all their future energies to answering this  one problem.  That is one windmill at which lance's must  be tilted until results are produced.  On the proper answer to this question rests  the very future of the Sechelt Peninsula. Let no  one forget that one point.  Proper transport for the Peninsula is the all  important problem. It must be answered.  are of the gall.  Leave out the men and women who would *  help because of what can be termed a duty, there  are those of us who may find it hard to dig down.  We would, in all. honesty, suggest that it would  be far easier to pay .a, few dollars .in real protec- ;  tion than to have to go later, when your store  or house has been saved by these same, unselfish  men, and have to say, "I'm sorry."  Let us not hide the fact from ourselves. Money will be needed from time to time. It is still a  long way from being a   well-equipped unit and  ':  drives will probably be in the offing.  Let George do it, is not good enough this  time. Help yourselves today to put our your fires  bf the morrow.  THI S N THAT By Mrs. Nestman  MR. AND Mrs. D.

SECHELT  By "ARIES"  HAVE JUST met a chap, a comparative newcomer, butr very  enthusiastic on the subject of the  glories of the Peninsula for all  that and it struck me that a little new blood doesn't come amiss.  Brunell Gordon is the name and  he tells us he is going into real  estate and insurance and that he  plans to have a summer resort  on property which he bought  last year from T. J. Cook and is  already building cabins known  as the 'PAN ABODE' dwellings  for which he is also agent so you  will see by this that he is a going concern. His office will be  near the TRIANGLE previously  occupied by Nelson's Laundry,  the other half is still the office of  Sechelt Taxi. We have failed of  recent years to have anything to  offer the summer visitor. > But the  waterfront cabins this year are  quite popular and that is a new  venture by UNION ��� STEAMSHIPS and the idea put forward  by Mr Gordon in which we  heartily agree is that the average  visitor does not want a house to  spend the summer cleaning and  polishing but cabins are the answer and it's our guess that by  next year Brunell Gordon will  have quite a camp. He is married  and  has  two   children   and  comes to us from Vancouver. We THE COAST NEWS, Monday, August 7,  1950  bid them welcome.

The   children   when  we arrived were very busily occupied with one or more creative  tasks   some  were     weaving     at  miniature   hand   looms   still   another group was engaged in pottery work and we were astounded to hear that  the clay  which  was so pliant was a local product  obtained   at   Wilson   Creek   near  the camp.  The children were so  eagerly listening to  the  teacher  of Arts and Crafts. Miss Beatrice  Sanderson   a 'graduate   of   UBC  who    was    formerly    associated  with Miss Mary Edgar Camp in  Toronto where she was assistant  swimming   instructor   for   board  of education and tells us that her  duties  at  the  wonderland  camp  are    instructing    in    swimming,  'supervising     hikes', ���   individual  training  in  handcrafts, novelties  and sewing. Then there is Miss  Maxine   Moase   whom   we   very  much enjoyed meeting again. She  is camp councillor and we really  liked the   action   songs   and  the  goodbye song which the children  did in our honor. At night they  have bonfires  and  marshmallow  and  wiener roasts  and then we  also met the lady who does the  meals for camp, all balanced and  planned. Mrs Eva Watson  nicknamed by  the  children as  'The  Angel' and the nice friendly atmosphere in the kitchen and the  interest  she shows   in  the   children has given us the clue to the  NICKNAME.    All  buildings  are  built to comply with government  health     regulations,     water     i s  pumped . through   a  clear mountain stream which runs through  the   property    and    government  tested,  the dormitories  are very  spacious and airy with excellent  spring beds and mattresses. Modern    plumbing    and    regulation  camp    style    facilities.    Large  lounge with huge firenlace with  recreation  rooms,   hobby  rooms,  outdoor dining rooms and indoor  dining rooms on days when the  sun is not  so kindly, piano and  records and a children's library.  Mrs   Forst   has   a   great   understanding of child psychology and  the backward or shy child is soon  mingling in good fellowship with  the  rest  and  the too aggressive  child is very gently made to take  her rightful place in the general  scheme. We often hear the complaint there are no businesses on  the  Peninsula, well here  is one  in the  making  and it won't be  so   very  long before   Mrs   Forst  will be able to add to her staff  from the local people and so we  wish her well in her venture and  grand feeling' that comes from a  iob well done in work that one  likes.   Two   important   members  of the camp ar<�� Goldie, the red  setter who never leaves the children,   and  Snookie    the    kitten  newly arrived just before we did.  We are so sorry to hear that  Mrs Katie Deal has been very  seriously ill at the home of her  mother, Mrs J. J. Nickson 'Rex-  wood'. However we understand  that she is getting along very  nicely now. Has taken quite a  turn for the better..

The result is that ex-servicemen  are paying high, and in many  cases, unnecessary prices for  businesses and exorbitant bonuses to money lenders.  Two specific instances of this  type of transaction came to the  attention of department of veterans affairs officials in Vancouver this week. The DVA feels  both could have been avoided if  the veterans concerned h.ad  known more about the veterans'  business and professional loans  act and other legislation enacted  for  their  benefit.  One veteran, investing $6000 of  NEW REAR ADMIRAL  1 ^_^^V^yE_?L#**?  Wife Preservers  STOCK-REDUCING  CLEARANCE  in  DRY GOODS  HARDWARE  CHINA  ETC.  MURDOCK'S  Marine Supply  PENDER HARBOUR, B.C.  ���CentTal Press Canadian  Rear-Admiral W. B. Creery, C.B.E.,  chief of naval personnel, who was  promoted to the rank of rear-  admiral of the Canadian navy recently.  his own money in a business,  borrowed an additional $2000 to  complete the deal. For the privilege he paid a "bonus" of at least  $200, and is paying off ihe loan  at six percent interest.  The other man, who bought a  business at a greatly inflated  price, borrowed $1250 and agreed  to pay back $1500 at six percent  (which means he gave a $250  bonus to the lender).  Both quite probably could  have borrowed the money they  needed from any chartered bank  under the veterans' business and  professional loans act. This act  provides for loans up to $3000  (the veteran must invest one dollar for every two dollars so borrowed), interest rate must not  exceed "five percent, and loans  may be carried for a maximum  period of ten years. Undoubtedly, if they had discussed their  business ventures with a bank  manager, they would also have  received advice on the soundness  of their proposed purchases.  To date 792 veterans in B. C.  have borrowed $1,449,400 from  banks under this Act. This money has been used to buy businesses, invest in partnerships, purchase or repair machinery, tools  and other equipment, construct  or maintain buildings and obtain  motorized units. An average of  fen to 15 new loans are approved  each month in B.C., many of  them to veterans who have recently completed professional  training under the rehabilitation  plan and are now setting up in  practise.  v-U LIKE IT-IT LIKES YOU  Children are naturally curious  and, unless carefully watched,  may be injured as a result of  their curiosity.

We had always believed that  dogs were very fond of horses,  . evidently our two, Winkie and  Traddie are allergic to them. Never heard such a barking and carrying on. Gerry Vannetta and  friend from Roberts Creek tied  their two saddle horses whilst  they were on a visit to the Jervis  family and the dogs certainly  staged ah act. Funnily enough  Winkie often used to go to the  local show and sat bolt uprigfht  on a chair in the corner at the  back and seemingly was very interested in the screen but when  a film was shown, we think it  was a comic, the Fritz Bros, and  the horses came on he barked  furiously, and we had to take  him out.

Bill is the fifth winner of the  ten-dollar weekly prize, part of  the current 10-week contest  which will culminate on Labor  Day with awards for the largest  fish caught that day amounting  to hundreds of dollars and including watches and other worthwhile prizes.
