C.  1 WITH nothing to do one day, I  V wandered down to the. wharf  \ arid loaded myself aboard Long  i Jim Allen's boat and hied to  | Drageland, that land of mystery  v and rumtDur nestling itself in the  & deep blue waters of Howe Sound.  T     Drageland has long been fam-  kous as the home of tame deer, the  ���: Army and Navy Veterans'  Club,  'summer  camps  and loud  voices  ? -vyhich can be heard as far to the  iwest as Victoria.  �� An island' also well known for  ���its hospitality, Drageland gardens have been riven from the  . rocks by means of loving^ long,  J hard work and ingenuity. If you  \ should doubt that last then go  \;look at the place made out of  ^bedrock by Frank Alexander.  ;Qnce a sick man���he could'hard-  liy. take a chance on bringing in  the wood���Mr. Alexander now  has a garden, ingenious and  [thriving, that -will stand with  fjjthat of any on Lulu Island or the  -delta lands of the Fraser.  '' The thing that struck me first  Was the high fences which surround this amazingly manufactured garden���much of the soil  I was carried to where the green,  rank growth now brightens the  landscape. The fences are made  from split cedar, found right in  fthe".garden area. They are high  to keep out the deer." A well .  rolled path leads to the garden  from the trail running past the  )back of the-club on Drageland.  (['The roller is there for all to see,  V round log complete with handles and' ajcle.

Adanac Construction Company has contract- for the work.  The oil treatment eastward will continue from the end of blacktop to Soames Point, and from blacktop end to Shaw Road in  fi-he west.  The same company- is in charge of the double flushing  from Porpoise Bay road at Sechelt to what is now proposed as  the end at Wilson Creek bridge. This latter has not as yet been  finally approved. What, according to B. M. Maclntyre, MLA,  has been approved is the double flushing ending at the Wilson  Creek Post Office. The rumored new ending would add a few  hundred yards only.  In his recent report to the people at Sechelt, Mr Maclntyre  had suggested that only the Sechelt portion would be done this  year. He was referring to the $35,000 supplementary estimate,  recently passed by parliament for this area.  It is believed the cost of double, flushing Gibsons area will  come from the original estimate. "This may well have been the  reason for Maclntyre's misunderstanding," said a road official.  GIBSONS���Parking regulations may soon be enforced on this  community's government wharf,  according to  Reg Godfrey,  chairman of the Local Affairs Committee of the Gibsons and  District Board of Trade.  Taxi  and  bus  space   allotment        idea grew from vehicular congestion on the wharf, particularly  bad during the summer. Mr Godfrey, on behalf of the Board of  Trade, approached Harbour Master C. P. Smith with plans for  zoning the dock proper.  The Howe Sound and Pender  Harbour Taxi Association had  previously written to the Public  Utilities Commission and James  Sinclair, MP, urging their intervention in the muddle of cars  and buses.  In his answer, Mr Sinclair  agreed something should be done  about the situation. He reported  that steps would be taken to zone  the wharf in an effort to clarify  the situation.  The Board of Trade move and  that of the Taxi Association has  actually crossed the same path.  Both are aiming for the same  target. Now, with approval of the  proper authorities, it seems to  be only a matter of time before  details  are ironed out.  Mr Godfrey has presented  plans to the Harbour Master  which have been tentatively approved. It is believed discussions  between that authority, the taxi  group and Sechelt Transport  Company is all that remains prior to arrival of order from what  is becoming an almost impossible  situation.

Power Contracts Clue  To Early Constrnotion  GIBSONS���Tenders   for  general   construction  of  contract   for  B.C. Power Commission's hydro development at Clowhom  Falls,  will   close  August 7,  according   to word  received   from  Victoria.  The   contracts   will   include   a =   'low dam at the head.of the falls;  a power house of. 2,000 h.p. units  and /the   excavation   preparatory  Falling Rock  A request from Sechelt and  District Improvement Association in relation to abandoned  school sites in the vicinity of Sechelt with a view to conversion  into cerrieteries, will be answered  in the negative.  School representatives now  will be brought into the management picture by means of mimeographed minutes of general  meetings. ..  Proposed by Inspector Burn-  ette and endorsed by the entire  board,  Mrs  Anne  Burns,   school  (Continued on Editorial Page)  Nurse's Office and  Board Room Together  ' >  GIBSONS-���School offices  of  the  future  will  be  modern  well  equipped.rooms in the new High School.  ;  ,      Trustees,   Monday approved  suggestion   from   School   Inspector Burnette, and arranged for in the drawings by Harold  Cullerne, architect, that the Public Health nurse's offices and  treatment rooms will also be part of the new building.  Approval  of these  suggestions -������;   came, follpwing argument from  several board members as to the  advisability of���. having the  school's administration offices in  the planned building. It was suggested that mail and banking  would be handicapped. This was  overridden by the inspector who  suggested that trustees should  look 30 years ahead and not be  influenced by trivialities of ' today.  In the matter of having the  nurses' treatment rooms there, it  was pointed out by N. R. McKibbin, as an advisory member,  that mothers here would have to  climb the steep hill to the school,  probably with small children. It  was felt the board was handicapped in that it had no money with  which to build a down-town office for the nurse.  The nurses' room will be seven  by five feet while the medical  room will be 11 by 20 feet. There  will also be a bathroom and dressing room in the arrangement.  In discussing the trustees' proposed  offices, against fairly stiff     mously  approved  the incorpora-  opposition, Colonel Burnette re-     tion of the two sets of offices.  minded the board it was handling  nearly three-quarters of a million dollars in the next year.  "Some of the decisions will be  big and should be carefully considered." He intimated there  were too many interruptions in  present offices. A. E. Ritchey  classified present quarters as "a  veritable firetrap. We have valuable records here," he said. "We  certainly need something better  than this."  Mrs L. S. Jackson spoke  against having the nurses' rooms  in the new building. She pointed  out there were disturbing influences with having the treatment  rooms and clinic in the same  building where children are  studying.  The board chairman gave way  when she was reminded that  there was no money with which  to build another office for the  nurses' quarters.  '"I suppose," she said resignedly, "there ��� is little we can do  about it now." The board unani-  Tree Surveij  Being Made  GIBSONS���Trees on the peninsula ,will be cut by virtue of  a priority set ��� up by a six-man  party of forestry experts under  Assistant Forester D. Carey. .  Now in the field, Mr. Carey  will decide which trees should be  cut first by virtue of their maturity or extent of rot or degree  of decadence. It is expected the  survey will. take one month to  conclude.  It is pointed out that enforcement of the findings can only be  made in timber yet to be sold.  "All we can do with operators  ;already under contract, is to advise them," Mr. Carey . pointed  out.  There is considerably more  merchantable timber on the peninsula than was at one time estimated. This- information was  disclosed following a survey  made last year under authority  of the Forest Branch.  There are seven categories into  which merchantable timber falls,  according to. the expert. These  range from "thrifty mature to  scattered veterans." It is upon  these grades that findings and  forestry policy will be based.  "We hope to be able to cut the  most decadent first," the assistant  forester said.  Death Claims  Bertha Sugatt  ROBERTS CREEK ��� This community   lost   another   oldtimer .  in the  person of Bertha Sugatt,  who died July 4, ager '73 years.  She is survived by her daughter, sister and brother. Services  were held in St. Alden's Church,  Sechelt. Interment was in  Sechelt, Rev. H. V. officiating.  Grading for a 1000 feet; of penstock, will be included as will  wharf facilities, an operator's  house and a semi permanent  maintenance camp.  Completion of the plant is expected by the fall of 1951. Construction work will start this  summer.  The commission will undertake  to build 20 miles of transmission  line from the falls to the Sechelt  site of the present diesel generating plant. This ends any rumor  that possibly the line would come  over the "hump" into Port Mellon then up the Peninsula to  Sechelt.  Halfmoon Bay area will not be  serviced, according to the commission, until the lines have been  completed servicing the lower  end of the peninsula. Pender  Harbour finds itself in the same  situation.  Welcome Beach cutoff has not  as yet been settled. This highway  shortcut to Halfmoon Bay is one  of the hinges upon which the  hoped for line rests. According  to B. M. Maclntyre,  MLA, there  A 13-YEAR-OLD Vancouver boy  died enroute' to hospital in  Vancouver Wednesday night after he was injured in a camping  accident up Howe Sound.  The lad, Rae Hazlitt, son of  Mr and Mrs Tom Hazlitt, of 2915  West Sixteenth, was injured  when an accidentally-dislodged  rock hit him on the head as he  and several other boys were  climbing a gulley at the mouth of  McNab Creek.  AT MOUTH OF CREEK  The boys were members of an  out-trip from YMCA Camp Elphinstone  near  Gibsons.  (Continued on Editorial Page)  are still no plans in the Department of Public Works for this  road construction.  The B. C. Power Commission  refuses to harbor thought of servicing the upper part of the Peninsula until this road has been  completed.  kipper  Local Police Boat  Awarded Service  GIBSONS���For 20 years police work without a demerit mark,  Skipper Nelson Winegarden, last week was honored with  the police Long Service and Good Conduct Medal. He is the son  of a well known and respected oldtimer "Chuck" Winegarden  of this community.  Investiture was made by Inspector A. MacDonald, officer  commanding the Vancouver district of the B.C. Provincial Police, at a ceremony in Vancouver.  Skipper Winegarden is on the  PG2 running out of Powell River  and his "beat" extends from Toba  Inlet to Sechelt and includes all  the islands and inlets along that  coast. He has been on this run tor  the past five years and it is.' the  third time he has been located in  this district since he has been  with the force.  While in Vancouver last week  he successfully wrote his'* examinations for a home trade master's ticket.  The bulk of his service has  been spent on the water, which  is his natural element. Before  donning the brass buttons he was  sailing with the fishing fleet.  During the time he has been  serving along this coast he has  participated in two major rescues, the first in 1941 when the  Great Northern No. 5 smashed  up on the west coast of Vancouver Island and left the two men  aboarc| the object of a search  which lasted 21 days. The other  was in 1945 when a boat went  on the rocks at McRae Rocks.  3DI&H3S  0 S  VIHOIOI/ By E. NESTMAN  CONGRATULATIONS to Jimmy  Chaster for being June winner  of the Kinsmen Draw.

School Board  (Continued From Page 1)  secretary, will make plans for  having the meeting minutes duplicated.  Robert Leith pointed out many  of the representatives, who had  to answer questions in regard to  schools, were without current  knowledge owing to poor liaison.  Longest discussion of the meeting, Monday, grew from an estimate of $800 per dining room  table, built for seating 20 pupils  each. The Board considered the  sum was too much. Said A. E.  Ritchie, "we could build lots of  tables for that money. $800 is far  too much for all we would get  out of it."  Norman Hough, thought he  could get local carpenters to  build three tables for the price  of one. Mrs Swan suggested if  the board could not do better  than that they should design  their own.  The architect will be asked to  design another style of seat that  can be inserted in the wall following use.  Big Fair  Is Slated  GIBSONS���The   Farmers'   Institute Fair this year may well be  the best ever.

Three halls, the Community,  the Parish, and the old Legion  Hall, will house the dozens of  entries.

There are many times when  it is a boon to fellow travellers,'  and to cut off Union service to  this area, many will suffer, not  only us, but how about our Island communities. So drop a  card, even a line, I'm sure we'll  get results. Jimmy has always  been very sympathetic to this  area, and well he should be, and  I'm sure he will do all he can to  help in this.

There also seems to be some  things ready for remedial measures in and near Pender Harbour  schools, according to Mrs. A. H.  McKay prior to her transfer to  Gibsons elementary school.  Among major improvements  suggested by Mr. Elliott were the  following:  1. Drain lower playing field  and remove the rocks. This will  help tidy the place, according to  the principal.  2. Most of the present library  is now out of date and should be'  renewed. Readers are required  for at least two grades.  3. Wall maps in holders are  badly needed. Suggestions also  that globes of the world should  be available for children to follow the rapidly changing contours of the various countries/  4. Science equipment is also  needed.  Mr. Elliott spoke highly of the  work done by the P.T.A., crediting them with much help in the  May Day parade and many other  activities.  Mrs. McKay scored the few  visits made by the public health  nurse to Pender schools. / She  itemized the visits made by that  official during the last year and  pointed out there were not  enough.  She felt the ferry system was  too irresponsible and the cause,  too often, of schools having to  open late in the mornings. She  also mentioned the lack of janitor  work in one of the schools.  PENDER HARBOUR���A' clearer  picture of what to expect at the  coming Pender Harbour regatta  and celebration is gradually appearing.  One thing clear is that it will  be one of the best ever to be put  on by this  energetic community.  Starting with a huge parade of  decorated boats, the prizes will  be awarded in three classes; best  decorated, the most novel, and  most comical.  Invitations have been sent to  James Sinclair, M.P., B. M. Batt  Maclntyre, M.L.A., and Reverend  A. Green to attend the- opening  ceremonies, Saturday, August 19.  The regatta committee; now  slated to meet at Garden Bay  every Monday from now on, has  authorized a huge dance in the  new Community Hall at Madeira  Park to culminate the day's activities.

Everyone is interested in doing things economically. I n  spending our incomes, we all desire to get as much as possible  for our money. Our shopping  ability is one important. factor  in determining how much we can  get for what we spend, but there  is a second factor often more important. It is the ability of people  who make and sell things to  place them on the market at a  price which we can afford.  Many of us can now enjoy the  ownership of an automobile, a  refrigerator, a radio, and many  other articles because we can  buy them for less money than  the amount it cost the manufacturer only a few years ago to  make  these   articles   when   they  S  Hassans  PENDER HARBOUR, B.C.

SECHELT  By "ARIES"  VISITING here from Kamloops  are Mr and Mrs John Bertram  and Barry, staying with Mrs  Bertram's parents, -Mr and Mrs  ,N. J. Nelson. Sorry to see that  little Barry is still on crutches  but noticed he can fly around on  them quicker than some of us  can walk.  We were in town for a few  days as we discovered the chap  who does the legwork on a weekly newspaper must have good  feet and ours were definitely not  good. After a session with the  doctor we are now not so bad.  We did manage to hobble to the  Theatre under the Stars at least  from the car parked at a convenient   location  and   enjoyed   very  were not nearly so good. Competition being what it is, it helps  us all when manufacturing costs  are lowered. In other words, everyone benefits from economies  in industry and trade.  While it is easy to see the advantage which comes to consumers through savings in costs of  production, many do not realize  that savings in the costs of selling benefit us just as much.  Every time you buy an article,  you must pay for the cost of  making it and also for the cost  of selling it. Otherwise the manufacturer could not stay in business. Anything that lowers the  cost of selling helps the consumer just as much as savings in the  purchase of raw materials.  Whenever you see a printed  advertisement, .or hear an advertising message over the radio,  you are witnessing a step in the  process of selling goods. Advertisers use this means of presentation because it is economical.  They have found by experience  that it costs less to sell goods  with the aid of advertising than  without it. They do not advertise merely because they take  pride in having their names before the public.  Advertising   is  not   a   miracle  method    or    a    hokus-pokus for  business success.    Goods ca^n be  'sold without it but-it costs'more  to do so.    When the salesman in  the  store  or at your back door  tells you about an article you may  wish   to  buy,  his  task   is  much  easier if you have heard or seen  his    product    advertised.      You  already know something about it  and   your   opinion    is    partially  formed.   Because advertising has  done part of the work of selling,.  the salesman can serve more customers   and so accomplish   more  effectively his part in the necessary   process   of   distribution  of  goods  to  the  pebple  who   want  them.    He is able to earn more  money   for   himself   and   at   the  same time, the total cost of placing goods in your hands is lower.  Through   modern    advertising,  the dealer and the manufacturer  are  able  to  speak to  thousands  and   even  millions  of  customers  at comparatively  small  expense.  You listen and you read and you  half - make up your mind whether  you will, or will not buy.   In the  comfort of your  home  or  while  riding' in the  country,   you  may  make your decision without personal   oratory   to   disturb   your  thoughts.  This sensible way of presenting the products of industry to  consumers has been found to be  economical. As a result, you can  buy many things more cheaply  than would otherwise be possible.  Advertising, our lowest paid  salesman, has helped us all to get  more for the money which we  have to spend.  much Blossom Time. The music  and singing was wonderful and  the Ballet at least was worth the  money. The Vancouver artists  ran the visiting professionals a  close race for honors on this outstanding performance. We are  looking forward to seeing Chu  Chin Chow. Our old friend Violet  Deane went along with our party  and was enquiring after old  friends at Sechelt especially Mrs  L. L. Scott and Mrs W. B. Billingsley and Mrs Alec Grey said  we would pass the word along.  With five candles on the cake,  Sheila Nelson celebrated her  birthday recently. Helping to  make the day a success and get  away with all the good things to  eat were Peter Hemstreet, Elaine  Powell, Maureen McKissock,  Judy and Edna Smith. Sheila is  the popular little daughter of Mr  and Mrs Jack Nelson.  The St Hilda's Parish Hall was  formally  opened on Sunday  afternoon by the Vicar, Rev H. V.  Oswald. Refreshments were served to members of the congregation and visiting friends and the  children's   choir   sang two numbers.  A   solo by  Master    Roger  Lucken the 23rd Psalm was very  much  enjoyed.   This  boy  has   a  very  beautiful voice.  Its   clarity  and   clean  diction make it  well  worth listening to. The building  committee consisting    of    chairman   Mrs  E.  E.  Redman,   E.  E.  Redman, Mr and Mrs W. B. Billingsley, Mr and Mrs Alec Grey  and Mrs W. Uttley were thanked  for their work by the Vicar. Mrs  Uttley the president of the guild  spoke   on  behalf  of   that   group  and Mrs Jack Redman on behalf  of the DePensier circle and Mrs  Brooker representing the Sunday  School   and  Mrs   Williams     the  choir.   It  was   a  very   congenial  gathering. We hope to have many  pleasant  times   in  the   hall this  winter.  Away for a few days in Vancouver is Melvin Cassman of  Jack's  Automotive  Garage.  Mr and Mrs Jack Nelson and  Sheila have returned to Sechelt  after a few days spent in Vancouver.  We wish to welcome Mr and  Mrs Ed Lee recently moved here  from Selma Park-.

Noticed the children's choir  having a wiener roast on the  beach recently. Some of the  adults getting away with a few  wieners included Mr and Mrs  Williams and Mrs McColl.

THE P-TA garden party held at  the home of Mrs E. J. Shaw  last Wednesday was very successful. The attractive sea front  garden was an ideal setting for  dainty summer gowns and well  appointed tables. The home  cooking stall was well patronized and there was a short musical  program arranged by Miss M.  Mclntyre. Two promising young  artists, Wendy Cates and Sheila  Smith, opened the program with  piano solos and represented the  elementary grade pupils. Nonie  Reeves, piano, and Michael Jervis, violin, represented the junior  grades, while Eric Lindwall, violinist, appeared for the senior  pupils. Mrs E. J. Shaw gave vocal numbers and Miss Mclntyre  concluded with a piano selection.  Tea was served on the lawn under the trees and Mrs Joe Storey  looked into teacups and saw  many exciting happenings for  some of the tea-drinkers. A word  of praise is due the ladies who  worked so hard for this affair,  especially in connection with the  amazing variety and professional  appearance of dainty sandwiches  and cakes served with the tea;  it proves one can live in the  country and still have the luxuries of the city.  Mr and Mrs Babb and son  Alan, of West Vancouver spent a  week visiting in Roberts Creek.  Mrs Aylesworth of Youbou is  visiting Mrs E. J. Shaw.  Dr Covernton and grandchildren arrived lately for the summer at the doctor's seafront  home.  Bonny and Sharleen Edlund  are visiting at their summer  hofoe on the beach.

"These ,twice-a-week visits are  not aimed at cutting into present  schedules or the traffic enjoyed  by other transport lines," said  Gulf Lines General Manager Ted  Lapage, in announcing the service.  "The Gulf Mariner will be used exclusively on these trips,  Monday and Friday, arriving in  Gibsons at 12 noon. These excursions are primarily adjuncts  to tourists' scenic cruises only,"  he said.  Wood is Enough  For School Board  GIBSONS ��� The,   school   board  may be forced into paying  higher rents but it bucked in no  uncertain manner when asked to  forego present means of heating.  C. P. Ballentine, upped the  rents to $35 per month and requested that the board do away  with their present woodburning  facilities  and install oil.  Said School Inspector Col. A.  E. Burnette, "will our landlord,  who is so free with suggestions,  install the oil furnace or will he  .supply means of getting rid of  our refuse?" He was assured this  was hardly likely.  Mr. Ballentine will get higher  rent only.  Last year's federal government  income tax collections of $1,298,-  000,000 were more than nine  times the 1939 total of $142,000,-  000.

Thank you neighbors.  �� We regret to report an outbreak of property damage in Roberts Creek. Kenny Fortt's boat  was damaged, the seats being  apparently wilfully smashed, a  boom of poles for the rebuilding  of the wharf was broken up, and  Miss Mclntyre's rowboat was deliberately pounded with a rock  and damaged beyond any use until expensive repairs can be  made. Our Constable Peterson  has been on the spot, and his detective work found the actual  rock which did this latter job;  paint marks and other identification left no doubt as to this being no accident.  Until the culprit or culprits  are founds, many local and visiting young people will be suspect.  Many taxpayers in this district  and others too, are pretty sick  of the recent publicity given to  the need of our young people in  the matter of schools and what  they deserve, etc (at the taxpayers' expense), when the same  'grateful' children can't leave  their benefactors' property alone.  The Canadian Legion Branch  219 held their carnival at the  Community Hall last Wednesday  night. This was a most successful and novel affair.

Lots of fun, let us have some  more of this form of entertainment Legionaires, we can all  join in. Proceeds to the building  fund.  The benefit dance on Saturday  last for Donny Weal, turned out  to be a real success. Actual  amount realized is not yet available but it will go far toward the  doctor and hospital expenses. The  fund will be administered by Mrs  Cumming.  Joe and Vivian Klein are  grandparents, daughter Sheila  Olson, now living on Bowen Island, had a lovely baby girl last  week.  Mrs Wm Cain also has a new  daughter.  The Ladies' Auxiliary to the  Legion met for a very pleasant  tea party at Mrs Edmund's home  on Tuesday. The occasion was a  farewell to Mrs Prediger who  will join her husband at Ingle-  wood in the near future. Mrs  Prediger will be missed by her  associates  in  the Auxiliary.  Residents of the Creek are expressing their approval and appreciation of the fine job the  Fraser River Pile Driving is  making of the wharf. A plank  sidewalk on the stone approach  and lamp standards are taking  shape, and the wharf proper is  being rebuilt at a great rate. The  whole crew seems to be expert  at the difficult job they have  taken on.  SAVE WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD  TO SAVE REGULARLY  THE BEST way to save is to plan for it.

Save regularly  and you'll have cash when you need it���for your vacation or  for Christmas expenses, for the down-payment on your own  home, the sudden emergency or the opportunity that's too good  to miss.

Mrs Critchell is well known in  the city, as a teacher of elocution, and of acting. Several members are willing to join this  group. It is expected others will  follow. If you are interested in  the Thespian art, get in touch  with one of the members of the  centre.  Beach parties are gaining favor among the residents of Wilson Creek, and last week, although the summer faded for 48  hours, there were more in attendance. A cool breeze was  dished up from, eastward, while  the good old hot-dogs were chased in from the other direction.  From all accounts, everyone had  a good time, especially when the  hot cup of Java was issued.

What might have been a very  serious accident, was luckily the  infliction of a nasty jagged cut,^  about five inches in length, over  Stan Tyson's eye. The incident  happened at the camp where  young Tyson works. Stan was  getting out of the way of a rolling log, when he tripped on  some object, and fell face downwards, glancing the keen blade  of an axe, which has been driven  into another log nearby. The  wound required several stitches,  and is not as serious as at first  anticipated, and we are glad to  report the patient is doing .fine.  Had a talk with Mrs Teddy  Cole who is recovered from her  accident and  is  practically   OK.  The management of the Why-  not Lunch at Wilson Creek, decided to move to a different location. It was all done in the twinkling of an eye. They simply yanked it across the road, and are  now going ahead on the same  schedule as before. Now they are  on the Lucken property.

Cul-  lerne will make a survey of the  furnace and heating needs of the  elementary school prior to  awarding of contract for installation of the new furnace.  Two tenders for the installation were opened by the board  but will be held in abeyance  until following the architect's report, expected yithin a few days.  It will cost $12,128.57 to renovate the elementary school according to estimates compiled  from tenders and 'advices by  School Secretary Anne Burns.  The work will take two years to  finish, owing to lack of funds and  the fact the school has to be used  later this year. The installation  of a new furnace, also lights arid  foundation repairs will receive  priority.  as   the flowers   in   May,  Friday  night, next, at eight.  One of the Johnston boys ar-_  rived from school in New West--  minster, to spend the summer at  the home of his parents, Mr and  Mrs A. Johnston. It is expected  that the brother will follow  shortly, accompanied by Mrs  Johnston, who went to the city  for a check-up, and to learn the  results of her recent niedical exam, with everybody pulling for  her, she must be feeling pretty  good again.  As I watched Dr Dune McColl,  nonchalantly passing through the  Davies Bay road, with a speed  easily in excess of fifteen miles  per hour, but not above seventeen, I was reminded of the song,  -Time On My Hands'. And wishing that some of the taxi and  truck drivers would pay a little  more attention to the twenty-  mile limit signs we have around  here, before it is t6o late.  And now I am reporting the  return of a former neighbor, Mrs  D. Erickson. Dorothy, or Aunty  as she is more familiarly known,  has again taken up residence at  her cottage in Trail's End, at the  Bay.  Mv$ Chas Maywood and daughter, are leaving for a holiday in  the city, accompanied by Mrs  Dot McKenzie, who by the way,  is - returning home after a sojourn at the Maywood home, it's  tit for tat, the Maywoods will  stay at the Mac's for an indefinite period.

Between You 'n Me  (Continued From Page 1)  through    the   ground,   have    to  carry.  An  architect in  the old days,  Jack is helped now by a braced  leg.   Most people find a stiff leg  a real handicap.    A number  of  people, you know them,  can use  their infirmities as an excuse for  sitting  in the house   and telling  long tales about how they used  to run the mile in 12 seconds or  something.     Not  Jack.    He  has  practically built    a    five-roomed  house,    cleared  half  an  acre  of  land from the virgin, rock studded wild land of Drageland into  a garden which is a showplace.  He has built this greenhouse, installed central heating and is in  the    middle    of    clearing   more  land, with the help of his game  leg, and Mrs. Adkins.    She it is  who has done the work that he  just    couldn't   possibly   manage  despite a burning desire and ingenious mind.  And there is also the man who  rules Drageland. And therein  lies the greatest fallacy of them  all. Drageland is filled with individuals who vote their own  way.  It has men and women who,  like the Highlanders of Scotland,  or the Black Bog Irish, just refuse to agree. Strong willed and  stubborn in their own way, each  person on that island will fight  without hestitation against any  person or group who dares sully  the name of Drageland.  There  is  one  man  who  holds  power   in   that   largest    of  the  Howe Sound Islands.    He is the  man who lends his name* to the  mocking     Drageland.       Francis  Drage, no less.    There  are men  on that island who swear by him,  and   there   are  men who   swear,  just as volubly at him.    He has  hundreds of men  on   the  mainland who swear at him.    He is  probably the most sworn at man  in this area. We, on the mainland  believe he  is King of  Gambier.  Nothing   could  be   farther   from  the' truth.  Drage does, indeed have power  on Gambier, but it is the power  gained from having been of service   to   many.     Well   liked   and  hated  both, yet there are  more  who will defend him than would  stab him.   He is not particularly  loved but he is acknowledged as  having done more for the island  and  its  people   than   any   other  man.  There are men who say he is  a mountebank. Others say he is  an honest man with, a flair for  the limelight. All agree he is a  hard worker.   All agree he works  A_  itfSftWS-SSlS  Bet lou Doiit Know  This About Advertising  QuizIVo.6  How much does it cost  advertise a 10c box  Canada's biggest-  selling crackers?   Is it  2c? 3c?  J^SlSWCTi It costs less than 1/10A  .And that's only half the story. Advertising  lowers your cost two ways:  Cuts the selling costs. And by helping  make mass production possible, lowers  ihe production costs, too.  So adveafeing saves you many times that  1/10# per box.  Fire Cost Survey  Not Yet Complete  SECHELT���The fire hall in this  community is near ing completion.  Under Fire Chief Fred Mills,  volunteer firemen.have reroofed  the old building, completed the  unfinished walls and are now  ready to apply the siding.  Local merchants supplied the  roofing while lumber and labor  for. the renovated building were  donated.  Results of a survey for relegating future costs have not yet  been made public. It is believed  levies will be based on a tax rate  basis. Said Assistant Fire chief  Dave Walker, "We believe this  to be,the most equitable method  of assessment."  Frederickson is  New Inspector  GIBSONS���Sechelt School District 46 will have a new school  inspector who will take over on  August 1, according to a letter  read at the board meeting.  Mr. C. J. Frederickson has  been named to replace the inspector who led the school board  fight on behalf of the recent  school bylaw. Colonel Burnette  has been named to the inspectorate in which is Alert Bay. It  may be recalled that quite recently that district -turned down  its recent bylaw.  In thanking the colonel for the  THE FOOD BUDGET  Housewives with an eye on the  budget never discard the liquid  part of canned vegetables. This  liquid, which is useful in stews  and many other dishes, generally  contains about one-third of the  water-soluble vitamins and one-  third of the minerals found in  the vegetables.  very fine work he has done on  behalf of district 46, Robert Leith  pointed out the Sechelt bylaw  passed only because of the fine  work done by the ex army man.  Said Mrs. L. S. Jackson, "we are  all' very grateful for the work  done by the inspector. We are  sorry to see him go."

The new addition will be donated by the most astounding  people, only because of this man.  He seemingly has the ability to  charm or wheedle or' coerce or  perhaps a little of all.  But the people of Gambier are  one and all agreed that he does  not rule Gambier. Drageland. is  only a name and not in truth.
