Monday,   July   10,   1950  5c per copy, $2.00 per year, by mail  am  GORDY Potts was showing off  his new boat to some people  the other day. It seems that  Gordy is good with tools as far  as ship building is concerned. He  had previously bought this beat-  up old wreck from the Union  Steamships -and ...then turned  round and did a first class job on  repairing it. What I; saw of it  from three feet away was O.K.  He can fix my boat when I get  one.  - I" hear tell the firemen had a  -successful night off. Seems the  boys threw a very fine shindig  last Saturday. The orchestra was  rated one of the best to come into  this country for some considerable time. That could be right  about the bands that have been  brought in but don't forget there  can be a fair band built right  here. There are certainly enough  musicians. I would foretell that  someone in the not far distant  future will get around to asking  a sax-clarinet player, a drummer,  a piano, and a singer who can  double on the sax, to form an  orchestra. That is the type of  band that would go. over here.  Most of the groups can't afford  the hundred dollars to buy or rent  one of these eight-man outfits  with five fiddles all playing melody, in the same key. What this  country needs is a good four-man  unit.  ', 'LlAnd   we   forecast that is what  will happen.  I was talking to a lady the  other day and she had a little  sneer in her voice as she spoke  about bringing tourists into this  country-, "What's the matter with  .;tke_JpS2i^^  of'V her talk. "What are they  bringing tourists into this country for?"  I took another look at this  woman. She seemed to be reasonable enough. She seemed to  be serious as well.    X      ���  .

There's yellow ones    Jack Fitchett  and  Al Clark for  Telford Forecasts Big  Year for Trade Board  .GIBSONS���Robert  Telford  was installed as  president  of the  Board of Trade by Robert Macnicoll, at a supper meeting  in the English Tea Rooms, Tuesday.   ~~. Mrs W. Stewart was simultaneously sworn in as vice-president.  In taking office, Mr Telford  outlined a plan of procedure for  the Board. "Cooperation," he  said, "among the merchants of  Gibsons and district is sadly lacking. This board will have to  make-.a strong point of getting  whole-hearted s u p p ort from  tradesmen, otherwise we may as  well fold  up.  "There is no use in having 30  or 40 members in the unit if the  work has to be done by a few.  We must work as a single medium of improving our part of the  peninsula and we can only do  that if we take a strong stand as  a Board of Trade and lead."  He suggested that proper pressure be brought on the local  members of parliaments, "to assure them working wholeheartedly for the area."  Transport will be a big problem for the next year's board,  said the new. president. He hinted that recent methods of trans-  GIBSONS���Construction may start early this fall on a new  six inch, spiral weld water pipe for the Village of Gibsons.  According to a report from Water Commissioner Wally  Graham, on replacing the old Cannery, four-inch wooden pipe  which has been used by the community, cost will be $7000.  The Village had previously assured itself of a permanent supply  of water by buying several acres of spring water land from the  Cannery. *  near  future  was woven  by  the  ladies.  Many Winners  Al Firemen's Ball  GIBSONS ��� Winners    of    door  prizes   at   the   Firemen's   Ball,  July 1, held in Bal's Hall, were as  follows.  Denny7Blake, C. P. Ballentine,  George   Fitchett,  Mrs. W.   Cook,  as big as Paul Bunyon's thumb.  The red ones are O.K. too."  (Continued on Page 8)  Amalgamation Yet if  Patience Can Hold  GIBSONS���Yet   another   resolution   on   amalgamation   from  village fathers has gone to the Inspector of Municipalities,  B.C. Bracewell.  The-resolution was forced by a request from the inspector  why the last petition he had received from the village was dated  October 26, 1949 yet the endorsation from the village was  dated June 21, 1950^ He wanted to know why there should  have been such a delay.  Parking Rules  Will be Enforced  GIBSONS ���Village commission  will enforce present "No Parking" laws on the road" passing in  front of the post office. This will  primarily affect parking in front  of McKibbin's office and taxi  operators.  Commissioner William Skellet  will place the No Parking signs  there immediately. . "These may  have to be removed if and when  the repair work is being done on  the surface," he said. "But they  will be placed back there immediately following. The way  things are there now they constitute a menace to safety."  A request will be sent to B. M.  Maclntyre, M.L.A., re when repair work will commence.  New Ladies'  Group Here  GRANTHAMS- LANDING���Duo  is the name chosen by a group  of younger ladies in this community and Gibsons to denote  both their unit name and signify  the motto chosen.  Do Unto Others, part of a Biblical rule, has been chosen by this  year-old association of ladies  aimed at helping needy families  on the peninsula. The group has  already been of service and is  now planning an Afghan rug  raffle, proceeds of which will go  toward paying for a much needed  tonsilectomy for a youngster who  finds itself in poor circumstances.  The group meets every month  in the home of a member. It  chose the name Duo also for its  meaning too; the one giving and  the one receiving.       V  The rug which they hope to  rfave^rgady^b^^fig'TaffTe-in^ the Xp_ort*rwil3��.be:m  He forecast that Union Steamships would probably curtail  their present schedules later.  "This will leave the district in a  precarious position. We have to  start work on that problem.now."  Jim Veitch, as chairman of the  Trades and Industry Committee,  will draw up a brief of the problem for submission to the Dominion Government and the  Public Utilities Comm ission.  Problems of overloads for the  Machigonne were also discussed.  Clowholm Plan  Going Ahead  VICTORIA ��� General contract  for construction of the initial  phase of the Clowhom Falls  hydro development is expected  to be let by mid-August, at the  latest.  It was learned: here today  specifications for the general  contract are being prepared for  issue at an early date, possibly  the first week in July.  Major equipment already has  been ordered, including the turbines and generators which will  produce an original 4,000 horsepower in a plant which lends itself ready to expansion, and the  utilization of the estimated 20,000  horsepower potential in the  Clowhom lakes   system.  Harley Anderson  To Boost Board  GIBSONS���Harley Anderson, in  a talk to the Board of Trade  during installation of (Officers,  Tuesday, promised to approach  every business man in the area  and attempt to have him take an  active interest in the board.  Following a pointed attack  from several members, led by  Cliff Gray, against the apathy of  business men here, Mr. Anderson  pointed out that there was much  to be done on behalf of promoting Gibsons as a tourist resort.  "Much of it .can be done by the  Board of Trade," he said.  He   claimed  the  board should;  take    the    initiative  and  urged  every'person iri business to join  the board in  order to work for  themselves to better effect.  the splendid job of co-operation  they did no promoting .and helping make the dance a success.  Remand Leiain  On Arson Charge  ROBERTS CREEK ��� Felix Le-  tain, 55, charged with arson before Magistrate Sidney McKay,  Tuesday, was remanded for  eight days in custody, following  a fire which completely demolished his home at the end of  Beach Avenue.  Damage is estimated at $5,000.  The log home was ravaged by  the second of two fires within  five days. The first had been  discovered by neighbors in the  evening of June 29, and brought  quickly under control. The second was attend by the Gibsons  fire brigade in the early hours of  Tuesday.  Cabaret Night is  Popular Success  SECHELT���More than 100 guests  crowded the Legion Hall, Saturday evening, helping Branch  140 celebrate the occasion of its  rCabaret -VNighfc- Dancingr-musie-  was supplied by Bob Cook arid  his helpers. Proceeds will be  used in the general fund.  Wharf Lights  Now Assured  SECHELT���Lights will be placed  on the newly constructed wharf  by the middle of August, according to renorts reaching this paper.  A further appropriation of $5,-  000 will be used in driving an  outside row of piling on the shore  end to approximately 90 feet out.  These will run parallel to the  wharf piling but out from them  several feet. They will act as a  break on floating logs . which  would otherwise harm the main  piling.  This community's board of  trade recently took this matter  up with the authorities when it  was pointed out that there was  no span allowing freedom to  floating debris.  Commissioner William Skellet  said it will be necessary to speea  passage of the bylaw in order to  have approval early this fall so  that major work can be done on  the head dam and penstocks  while the water is low.  A copy of the report will go to  B. C. Bracewell, inspector of  municipalities.  Commissioners were unanimous in their approval of the plan.  A report on the water source will  also be forthcoming from Dr  Hugh Inglis.  Village fathers also decided to  cut short businesses which have  been operating without licenses.  Said Commission Chair man  James Drummond, "send these  hold-outs their last notice.51'  It was reported by license inspector Robert Burns that only  four parties had not paid.  Final approval was given bylaw number 85 dealing with subdivision of property. From now  on the law states new lots will  be fifty feet frontage or equivalent.  Chaster Wins ~  Kinsmen Draw  GIBSONS���Another $50 will go  into the peninsula coffers by  means of the Kinsmen monthly  raffle won for last month by  James Chaster, Gower Point.  The winning ticket was drawn  during the show in Bal's Hall,  Tuesday, by a little Vancouver  girl visitor.  George Hunter, chairman of  the raffle committee pointed out  to visitors the reason for the  raffle. "This is our means of  raising money with which to help  children," he said. He urged  visitors and locals alike to continue buying the now familiar  tickets. "Every penny you spend  in this manner will go toward  children ' and assuring them of  having clean fun. Every penny  is utilized on the behalf of kids.  More than $90 was raised last  month.  Commissioners took immediate  steps to assure the inspector that  they failed to endorse the petition in question owing to lack of  authority to enforce section 65  of the Municipal Act. The new  endorsation which will accompany and in fact. embodies the  reasons for the delay, points out  that only by recent enactment of  parliament has the village been  assured of levying their own local improvement taxes.  This is actually'the second endorsation of the request submitted by section 685 that has gone-  to Victoria within the last few  days.  Scorned Commissioner Mrs E'.  Nestman, "let us put in an endorsation that is full of whereas  and wherefore, that seems to be  one of the big troubles with that  outfit." ..'������.  . The new endorsation will contain several' of the proposed  words and phrases.  Housing Committee of  Far Reaching Import  GIBSONS���A renewed effort will be made    by    the    Gibsons  Board of Trade in relation to the Housing Committee and  its list of accommodation.  At a meeting of the board in English Tea Rooms, Tuesday, Mrs W. Stewart,  Howe Sound  5 and   10 and Mrs Alice  Veitch of the Appliance Shop will co-chairman the committee  charged with compiling the directory.  Both ladies point out that any  householder with accomodation  of any sort should register with  the housing committee. "Any  member of the Board of Trade or  any business showing the "Register Here" sign, will be only too  satisfactorily, but there, are still  some members of the community  who have failed to send in their  proposed quota."  He went on to say that it is the  responsibility of all merchants to  willing to outline the plan," Mrs     donate  their share   as  they will  Veitch said  Speaking on publicity, Bill  Sutherland of this paper, pointed  out that the housing committee  was probably the most important  of the new publicity drive. He,  with Gordon Ballantine, are responsible for compilation of the  two-color. folder which will be  on the presses this week.  MrxBallent3ai^a_a&; out that  money in answer to the circular  letter   is  how coming   in  "quite  be the main  ones to  gain from  any surge of tourists.  In closing he urged that householders get behind the "Housing  Committee" with information  pertaining to the housing of  "week-enders" and sport fishing  visitors.  o a  VIH0IOIA By E. NESTMAN  SORRY to report our good friend  of the  Farmers'  Institute Norman  Sergeant has been quite ill.  and confined to his home.  Mrs Lil Schutz has * come  through her operation in St Pauls  and is doing as well as can be  expected.  Mrs Winn Yarmish taking a  rest cure for awhile before returning home to Gibsons. Visiting here over holiday, Mr and  Mrs Art Alexander, guests of Mr  and Mrs Reg Godfrey. Mrs . A.  Williamson and son Geordie visiting Sue Frith, for a couple of  months, down from Prince Rupert. Mrs Williamson is a former  resident of  Gibsons.  Over the holidays many visitors noted in the Landing, Jimmy Tyson, and dad' down for few  days, Jimmy quite recovered  from his  operation.  Ruth Ngrris home for v three  weeks' vacation. Wilf Nestman  transferred to Black Raven No.  2, of fisheries patrol, out of  Campbell River. Eileen Kane  away to summer school in Victoria.  Miss  M.    Drummond     visiting  Mrs   D.   Dickson   for   couple   of  weeks,   Miss   Drummond  former  teacher   at   Gibsons.   Talking   to  her, found she has many pleasant  memories of Gibsons and wouldn't, surprise me to see her back  with us one of these  days. Just  my idea of course. A very interesting  visitor dropped  in on me  Sunday, -in  the person of Gwen  Baxter,  Father    Baxter's    sister,  visiting Vancouver from Ottawa.  She has been in Ottawa for many  years in the civil service branch.  Tells   me   Father   Baxter   would  be a very happy man if he could  get back here again. He has been  quite ill, and only recently gone  back to work. Gave me quite an  interesting   outline   of the     care  they are giving back east to Polio  patients, her youngest brother, in  his earlv 20's is stricken, and the  long tedious process  of rehabilitating them certainly a very  interesting problem.  They  are doing   more  wonderful   work   than  one could  ever realize.  Explained process of the iron lung, how  a patient has to make the effort,  and come out of the lung himself,  and how after being in for some  time,   is   almost   afraid   to   come  out, and it is one of the long tedious  processes  on  the    way    to  their   recovery,   when   they   will  voluntarily  give up  their prison  in the lung.  After over  a  year,  her brother has now regained the  use of his arms  and upper part  of his body, and although at first  almost in despair, has now gained  a very  definite cheerful outlook on the whole situation. She  said   nurses   specially   chosen' to  take care of these patients, they  must have a world of patience, a  disposition    capable     of    coping  with  the   many   moods   of   these  patients, and in every way be the  perfect   Helpmate.  These   women  doing wonderful work, and much  of the credit  of the recovery of  these  patients  due  to  this  help.  There is  much we do not know-  concerning these unfortunate victims,  and it would  certainly do  many   of   us. a   world   of   good,  make  us  more understanding,  if  we knew even  a   little  of . their  struggles. It is a long road back  to  even partial recovery.  Certainly   a  wonderful    crowd  came   up   over     the    week-end,  many   strangers   in   the   village,  literally   hundreds,   good   to  see  them all,  and we certainly wel-   ,  come them. If anyone has a room  or two, or even verandah space,  they would  like to rent for the  summerf get in  touch  with Mrs  Stewart in the 5 and 10, Mrs A.  Veitch in the radio shop, or myself, in the dress shop. Accommodate some  of these   people,  you  do not have to feed them, just a  room,   over   night   visitors    certainly more  than   pleased to  be  accommodated, you'd be surprised at some of the nice people you  will   meet.   Leave   those  names,  and   rooms,   and   we'll   see   that  they are made very good use of.  Well,   guess   this  is   it  for    this  week, more news next we hope.  Almost forgot to mention our  little fire alarm around 6 a.m. the  other morning. Did you all hear  the siren, it's surprising how  many didn't. Boys sure, got away  in good time. Spotted Bobby Wilson making that truck of his in  nothing flat,  shirt flying in the  &  AND STILL another Board of Trade president  has taken over in Gibsons. Retiring Post  Master Bob Telford probably has one of the  toughest rows, to hoe that has been the lot-of any  president.  He will have to buck an apathy which has  grown through lack of drive and initiative on the  board's part. Only a small handful of loyalists  have kept the unit operating during the last few  years. Mr Telford and his executive will be large-'  ly responsible for renewing waning faith and  hope.  A proper start was made in the installation  ceremonies when Harlej'- Anderson was nominated as a cne-man committee charged with finding  cut what each and every merchant had against  the board. By this means the root of the trouble  may appear. If such is the case, then quite probably remedial  measures can be taken.  This part of the Peninsula has a million dollars worth of attributes to sell; it has all the makings of a garden spot in' which to live; it has  everything necessary to a good way of life. All  that is lacking is initiative and promotional effort.  We look to the Board of Trade to lead in these  things. Too long have the people looked in vain.  We hope anew that the board will take hold  of the trouble in a masterful fashion and carve  our future from the things which surround us.  They are bountiful these things, and worthy of  much effort.  The new publicity drive, sponsored by the  board, will bring in tourists to our midst. These  must be catered to. There is absolutely no good  to be gained, in fact there is much harm, iri bringing  these   people   to   Gibsons,   then   closing   the  doors, figuratively and literally in their faces.  Cliff Gray was right when he suggested all  stores shoui'd remain open during the summer. As  he suggested, the holidays can be taken later in  the fall or in the winter.  We know the ideal time for taking a holiday  is in the summer. But then, all of us knew, when  we settled in this are'a we were primarily interested in catering to the tourist trade. We, those  cf us in business, not so much our elder citizens  who are retiring in our midst, have to face the  facts. If we are to trade with the illusive visitor's  dollar then we shall have to remain awake while  he is here.  This village has few local postcards. What  there are, are hidden away or promoted as an incidental. Indian work or local shell work or any  of the small souvenir trinkets dear to the heart  of the visitor are missing. .  A "Welcome to Gibsons" sign will soon be  raised across the north end of the wharf, that is  a step in the right direction. It must always be  remembered that people on holiday are in a mood  to enjoy and appreciate little things done for  them. What is more important they' are even anxious to pay good hard cash for little niceties.  If we are going to take this tourist business  seriously then we would be well advised to get  behind our Board of Trade and make a real job  of acquiring new money. This, going about things  haphazardly is silly and just a plain waste of  everything  including time  and  energy.  Get behind your Board of Trade, and help  yourself.  breeze.

FIVE TOWNS UNDER WATER IN B.C. FLOOD  Five towns and several hundred  acres.of farmland are under water  in British Columbia as melting  snows from the mountains' swelled  rivers and streams.   Halted by the  flooding Fraser river is the Agassiz-  Rosedale ferry, 75 miles east of  Vancouver. The muddy river water  cut off the approaches to the ferry  slip   on   the   Rosedale   side   and  covered the road to a depth of three  feet. Greatest fear is held for  Aggasiz, potential danger zone if  the dykes fail to hold.  ROBERTS CREEK  By M. M.  THE holiday week-end combined  with fair weather, attracted  large crowds of visitors to the  . Creek. McFarlane and Elphinstone beaches were thronged with  people and many of them, including your correspondent, ended the weekend with backs and  shoulders reminiscent of raw beef  steak; incidentally the best  treatment for a bad sunburn is  to lie in a luke warm bath for  fifteen minutes or so three or  four times a day.  Among visitors to the Creek  were Mr. and Mrs. W. Grant  spending the week-end at the  water front home of Judge Grant.  Mrs. Blanche McKenzie visited  her son-in-law Mr. Harry Lincoln.  Mrs. Campbell and Mrs. Irving,  ���daughter and niece" of Dr. Cov-  ernton, arrived from California  to spend the summer here.  Mrs. Rendall1 daughter of Dr.  Bullen, -also arrived with her  family for the summer.  Miss Beth Mclntyre and Miss  Sylvia Elliott and Mr. Alan Mclntyre were guests at Greenacres  for the holiday week-end.  The local summer camps are in  full swing. Camp Byng opened  with a full complement, of Cubs,  and the Presbyterian Church  carnp, "Lone Pine," at Elphinstone, opened this week-end for^  the summer.  The home of Mr. and -Mrs.  Felix Letain v was burned to the  ground in the early hours of July  4. The building was a total loss.  On June 28 the P.T.A. and\  V.O.N, gave a tea in honor of  Mrs. Heron whom we reported  as leaving .Roberts Creek.  The tea was held on the lawn  in front  of. < Mrs   Haslam's home  and    was  served by  Mrs.  Jack,  Mrs.   Flumerfelt  and  Mrs.   Wallis.    Mrs.  E.   J.  Shaw,   speaking  on behalf  of   the  two   organizations,   expressed   regret   at   Mrs.  Heron's    forthcoming    departure  and   thanked   her   for   excellent  work among the. young people of;  Roberts Creek.   She also present- \  ed as a token of appreciation, a-  pair of pinking shears. ..  Mrs.    Alice    Newton    held    a  beach, party for the . children of,  St." Afdari's Church Choir, at herv  waterfront      home     on     Beach  Avenue.

BETWEEN-MEAL  SNACKS  , Between-meal snacks that are  planned to supplement the day's  menu can make a real contribution to nutrition. Growing children, expectant and nursing mothers, active workers and those  who are "try ing to regain health  and strength frequently,, need  more food in a day than they can  comfortably consume in three  meals. The secret is in eating the  right between-meals food at the  right time between meals.

There's just a  chance he might help us to fight  for a buoy, or marker for this  menace to shipping. This time it  was the beach-comber with a  tow of logs which ran afoul of  the bar, and was inconvenienced  for forty-eight hours, When a tug  appeared, and took him off. I  rather think he was lucky at  that, for had he grounded about  six yards wharfward, he undoubtedly would have crashed  down the miniature ravine,  which is caused by the wear and  tear of the waters from the  Creek, which empty into the  Bay. What then? Ed. kindly note.  Well our breakwater is finished, and a right smart job it looks.  I strolled down there last Sunday, and saw more than a dozen  young chaps in their early twenties, doing what they called a  carinonball, which turned out to  be a mad rush to the edge of the  float, then a wild jump into the  drink with knees up and hands  down. There was also a sprinkling of the fair sex in the company, and to see all those bodies  flying through space, at the same  time,  was really something.  And going from the sublime to  the ridiculous, on my way home  I stood and watched a motorist,  as he stopped his car, jumped  out, and with beads of perspera-  tion on his worried brow, proceeded to wipe the dust from his  windshield.

These bus trips leave  Vancouver Terminal at 8:30 a.m., 5:00' p.m. and  7:30 p.m..daily with an extra trip on Saturdays leaving at 1:30 p.m.  The majority of the passengers for Gibsons originate  at Vancouver and very few are picked up in West  Vancouver. Stopping at all points in West Vancouver  wherever passengers may be waiting for a bus is time  consuming and causes delays to boat departures at  Horseshoe Bay.  To speed up the service in the interests of the majority of the passengers Sea Bus Lines and Pacific  Stage Lines jointly applied to the Public Utilities  Commission for permission to limit the number of  stops in West Vancouver.  This permission has been granted and effective with  the first "Limited" bus trip from Vancouver on Sunday next, July 16th, 1950, stops for the purpose of  picking up boat passengers will be made at Ambleside, (14th Street and Marine Drive), and West Bay,  (Municipal   Bus Terminus),  only.

This   is   rather  belated  but  I  . wanted to say congratulations to  " Joe   and - Margaret   Mitchell   of  East Bay who recently celebrated  their  25th wedding  anniversary.  SECHELT WEST  *  By MARGARET ALLAN  - $    LOOKS   like   Sechelt  West  has  been  out   of  the news  for   a  *  while. The truth is I have been  busy, also in town for a visit. Via  Gibsons is a good way of getting  to know your neighbors. Mrs.  Arnold and Mrs. Batchelor were  on board, also Mr. Elliot with his  usual bunch of sweet peas, that  ���is how we identify him. Met the  watchmaker's, mother, who had  been, up on a visit. Came back  with Mrs. Clark of the Kumagen  Tea Rooms, promised to visit her  which I hope to do, both ladies  are from Regina.  Mrs. McRae's lilly-pond looks  like fairy-land, you can almost  see the fairies on the little walk  she has around it, it was once just  a gravel pit.  Mrs. Bloom has taken over  Wakefield barbecue, we wish her  every success. She has two little  children. Things seem to be picking up that way.  We went out in Cecil's bus (the  new one)  to visit Mr.  and Mrs.  Groves,  and can that boy build  fireplaces?   Their auflt and uncle  . are in Scotland for a year, they  are Mr. and Mrs. Cairns, and 80  years old, no less.  Some activity around the old  DePencier property, getting  ready for the camp opening. I  also hear there is a house going  up, yes, right on top of the big  rock. ��� Won't that be something.  I will be glad when they widen  the roads, so that we pedestrians  can   get  out  of the way of the  , speeding cars.  I" don't think washing' is my  forte, I never am successful. Recently, I got a new machine, the  script reader was out, the. wringer reversed, water everywhere, a  good clean floor now.

The  one with the whisper of far  places, is the lapping waves just  kissing our shores after having  stopped n China or ma'ybe one  of the corral islands of the deep  south Pacific. That blue sky is  ours, lady. It's you'rs too. Cherries abound in this ' country.  There are wild ones and big  luscious Bings and Lamberts.  Strawberries and big blackberries can be had for the taking in  this peninsula, lady.  "That water you see there is  water that harbors the world's  finest sport fishing���salmon. At  our very back door we have Salmon Rock which is the scratching post for the big ones. Some  of these islands you see are for  sale. You can buy one cheap and  become in very truth an emperor. Behind you are the trees  that prairie dwellers would give  millions to have at their back  doors. The sun above you is hot  but not oven hot like it is on that  great baldheaded land of yours.  We have cool breezes that waft  in from Vancouver Island in the  distance. You can stand on the  headlands of any point along the  shore line and watch the ships  coming in from the far ports.  "With any degree of imagination you can see the lands from  which they came. There's the  dark green swamp lands with  their mangoes and moccasin  snakes. There are cold iced lands  with weird men, with slanting  eyes' which peer suspiciously  from beneath their parka hoods.  There is the smell of copra and  the   lure  of  Singapore  complete  Gray Defends  "No Closing"  GIBSONS���Jim Veitch drew a  bright picture of Gibsons future when he accepted chairmanship of the Trades and Industry  committee of the Board of Trade.  "The new boat harbor (already  in the planning stage) will be  only a part of the picture for  Gibsons," he suggested. "This  will someday be a 35-acre safe  harbor. It will quite probably be  the only major yacht harbor out  of Vancouver.  He scored the haphazard method of closing for the holiday as  followed by local merchants. "We  must be the laughing stock of the  country," he said. "Our transport and hours of closing are out  of date with the world."  with its strange, heady, sickening  smells. Lady, there's, romance  and mystery in those ships.  "You ask us what we have for  tourists, here? We have the free  running creeks with their little  fish. There's hidden and surprising waterfalls on each of  them. ��� There's the high weird call  of the logging trucks, loaded with  the world's finest yellow, cedars.  Down here we have fishermen  who can tell you tales of some  strange and wondrous creatures  they have dug from down in the  black depths of the ocean. If you  insist that will spin you yarns  of loot and buried treasure.  "This is the land' where maple  trees grow in the drain pipes if  you should fail to clean the  leaves out every year. Growth  is abounding and the world is  free. This, lady, is the garden of  the evergreen playground. What  do you mean what have we for  tourists?"  Cliff Gray, speaking on the  hours and closing problem which  arose through several Gibsons  merchants closing while others  remained open, took the defensive.  "We must remember that this  community is primarily interested in serving tourists and visitors.  We have all winter to take holidays. I suggest we remain open  during the summer. After all,  the visitors come up here and.  they often run short of some  small item. It would certainly  be stupid for us to try and bring  in tourists,. then close our doors  in their face.  "I, for one, will remain open  during the summer," Mr. Gray  assured. "We must look after  these people if we are to try and  entice them here." He mentioned several communities serving tourists which remain open  every day during the summer  influx.  In his talk, Mr. Veitch warned  the board it should try. and cooperate more fully with the village commission. "We must join  with- -the village commission in  trying to improve our village and  surrounding area."  He urged the board to take the  lead in planning for the future.  ICE CREAM COOL  There's nothing more appetizing these hot summer days than  a dish of creamy, delicious ice  cream. Nutritionists tell us that  in addition to being a-first-class'  "cooler-offer," ice.cream is just  loaded with ingredients the body  needs. ... and at the same time  it lacks the high sugar content of  many confections and soft drinks.  .

CHEyRON  GAS STATION  BETTER CAR CARE STARTS HERE  $  PICK  AND  SHOVEL  TODAY  AND  WHAT  TOMORROW  Look at a gang of pick-and-shovel men  working in the street. Better look  them over carefully. The head of  tomorrow's big construction company  may be among them.  That is the way our system works.  There is nothing wrong with pick-and- _ . :  shovel work. It is honest toil, pretty  well paid these days���better paid by  far than anywhere in the world  outside this continent.  But always there will be some whose  ambition stretches to greater things.  So they save their money, and soon  they are taking small sub-contracts;  later, bigger ones. And after  demonstrating the ability to work hard  and lead men, they get more capital  and go after still bigger jobs. Eventually it can be a big construction  company.  Dreaming? Not a bit. The head of just  about every large contracting firm in  Canada started that way and fought  his way up the ladder of success.  That is why it is called the free  enterprise system. It works for  Canada and Canadians.  It is worth guarding and preserving.  BRITISH COLUMBIA FEDERATION OF TRADE AND INDUSTRY
