 f*U  MRS. HARRY Greenwood came  breezing ��� that is hardly the-  word for such a little woman ���  better say she came tripping into  the office and relayed the infor-  mation that her well liked husband is on the mend again.  Harry, it was, that came in one  day and started telling us about  his wood cutting prowess, which,  by the. way is. now finished for  good, according to Mrs. Greenwood.: More than 70 years old,  Harry can and has and if left to  his own devices, will cut and pile  a cord of wood a day. I have  cut many acres of wood when the  depression was '"with us and I  know full well that 99 per cent  of the men in this country won't  be able to cut a cord a day when  they top the three score and ten.  I was certainly glad to hear he  is getting better. We need old-  timers like that around. They  set up marks for the younger  ones to shoot at. It keeps the  nation from getting too soft. If  you remember, that was what  happened t6 the Ma'nchu dynasty  in China. They got soft from  having the coolies, etc., doing all"  their work for them.  Captain Billy Yates, strolling  up the wharf the other day, stopped long enough to reminisce  with this joker and Reg Godfrey.  Captain with the Union Steamships for many years, 1907 to be  exact, Cappy, who looks like  everything else but a sea skipper,  recalled the day he opened the  new Gibsons wharf. He was supposed to make a speech, had it  all lined up and written out  ^m^^..^^^^s^^?i^r^^e rib- ..  bon and started to speak���that  beautiful flowing phrase stuck  deep down in his throat. Not a  word came out. To top it off his  son and wife were on the wing  of the bridge all set to get proud  of "Pop." The crowd started to  sing, "For He's a Jolly Good  Fellow." That made everything  right said Billy Yates with a nostalgic gleam in his eye.  He had no trouble recalling  the time he had to eat onions in  order to beat of fthe flu when  the epidemic was on following  the last war. He tells that the  cooks on the boat had seen the  crew loading victims of the  plague on the ship for transfer  to Vancouver and had announced  that "Onions is the only safe  cure."  "Onion it was," says Captain  Billy with a chuckle. "We ate  onions in everything during that  terrible time."  Mr. Coates, the ex-shipbuilder  and the man responsible for  building the original Sea Bus  Lines boats, was hurrying along  the main street. He had that  grim, I must get there, look on  his face as he nodded to acquaintances. I figured that only  supper time could cause that  tense mien.  I noticed the ladies were having a great time in Mary Drew's  lovely garden. The. younger fry  were playing bowls while the.  W.A. to the United Church swap-  ped yarns or whatever ladies  swap when they serve tea.  Ken Alexander was on his way  to give a lecture to some group  on the birds and bees. Ken may  be one of the best qualified men  in this neck of the woods to talk  on that subject. Being a Fellow  of the Royal Geographic and  about ten other well known and  national outfits, he is one of the  nature authorities that is really  an authority.  He tells me that he is in the  nice position of .being paid to do  what he likes to do in the place  where he likes to live.  A young mother, having saved  up for a dining room set she  doted on, saw it installed and  went out to market. She returned to find small son seated under  the new table, busily whittling  the neat sharp corners off its legs.  For a moment she stood aghast,  then rushed outdoors to her husband.

Maclntyre, MLA will officially open  the Farmer's Institute Fair, August 18, according to word  from the organizing committee.  The two day event will include entries in poultry, weaving  and home handicrafts, some of which are reputed to be equal  to any shown on the continent.  The show will officially   start   at 7 p.m. and will include demon- ' -   ^  strations and pottery craft in the  Parish Hall.  Judges will include A. H. Pep-  par, vice president of the B. C.  Fairs Association; W. D. Christie,  from Experimental Station, Abbotsford; home cooking and domestic science under Mrs Margaret Henderson, Vancouver;  needlework, Miss V. Britton,  Vancouver; school section will be  under James Sinclair sr, while  poultry exhibits will be handled  by Inspector R. H. McMillan,  New  Westminster.  The Carnival and Midway will  be handled by the Kinsmen Club  complete with all the equipment  from various midways and shows  throughout the   country.  According to Chairman Laurie  Speck, "This is going to be one  of .the best we have ever had.'  ' Everythihg 'is"*r'6ad^;.''tp^take/ the  sucke . X. I'mean the friendly  people to town. We don?t intend  to give anyone a break if we  can help it."  He pointed out that several of  the Kinsman booths last year  came close to losing money from  trying to be fair with everyone.  It is expected, despite the honky  tonk talk of the chairman that he  will still assure everyone of getting a fair break. ,  The money raised by this  means will go toward helping  the  kiddies of Gibsons and Dis-  Union Ends All  Transport Here  GIBSONS���It has officially been  announced that Union Steamships' schedules to West Howe  Sound ports will cease on November 4. The same rule applies to West Howe Sound Ferries.  Waterhouse Freight, a subsidiary of Union, will continue io  operate.  News that the Lady Alexandra  would soon cease operation, had  previously filtered through. This  is the first time it had been announced by the Union Steamships.  Gambier Island had previously  made , arranginftieivis ���wilhr Clailt  Gibson for Sea Bus Lines to call  "at least twice weekly." It is  presumed this will be the method  for mail delivery to that area.  James Veitch, as chairman of  trade and industry, and Reg.  Godfrey, chairman of local affairs  committees of the Board of Trade  are now trying io effect substitute service. ���  trict, which actually goes as far  as Pender Harbour if the need is  there.  GIBSONS���The Sunshine Poultry Club which swept clean the  local exhibition slate last year, and took second and third  prizes in an all E^C. show, may quite easily repeat again.  This territory has a junior poultry club which  may well  take the lead in Pacific National Exhibition, according to UBC  Professor A. G. Lloyd, following an all day tour of the ciub here.  "These are better chickens," he  Fire Siren Will  Gel Daily Test  GIBSONS.���When the fire siren  goes at 12 noon in the future,  please hang on to your seats.  Daily tests of the tire siren will  be made, at 12, according to plans  said on the tour, "than those  produced at UBC this year." He  forecast stiff judging among the  local entries at least, owing to  closeness of the high quality entrants.  All birds will be shown at the  Farmers' Institute Fall Fair to  be held Aug 18 and 19 in Gibsons. It was at this fair last year  the four-year-old club under tu-  authorized   by   fire   chief "Wilf   .torship  of Ed  Smith  and presi  dency of Don Trethaway, cleaned the decks of every worthwhile  prize. --'���"���  Poultry exhibits at the PNE  this year have been cancelled  owing to the prevalent Newcastle disease, again raising the  mortality rate among poultry-  flocks  in  the Fraser Valley.  Exhibits will be judged in  their home pens by a travelling  group of judges. Points and rules  governing same will be as if actual entries at the Exhibition.  "This is where we can really  show the folks there is such a  place as Gibsons," said enthusiastic Mr Smith.

"I'll have it going as close  to 12 as I can, and that is all I  can promise."  Drage lo Attend  Vets' Convention  GAMBIER ISLAND. ��� Captain  Francis Drage, J.P., will attend  the national convention of the  Army, Navy and Airforce Veterans in Canada, to be held in Winnipeg during the first week in  September.  Happyland Gamp is  ROBERTS CREEK���Call of the wild is strong     in    even    the  young female of the species.  Truth of the above can be borne out by Mrs Carola Forst,  one time editor of this paper and    now    manager-owner    of  Wonderland Camp for girls, hidden in the trees    at    Roberts  Creek-  Mrs  Forst   is the  leader   of a  girls' school, which is something  different. It is a place where the  youngsters  from six to 12  years  of age learn   the  ancient art of  pottery,    wool weaving,    carpet  and mat  making  and    what   is  more   important they learn discipline in a friendly, educational  manner.  Chief consultant and phsycho-  logist teacher is Miss Beatrice  Sanderson, graduate of UBC in  Social Service. Swimming classes ' and controlled hikes and  wood patrols through the shaded  trees which border the stream at  the bottom of Wonderland Camp  are all under supervision of Miss  Sanderson.  Tall, brunette and athletic  looking, Miss Sanderson is a  graduate of the school of theory  in child training that has culminated in well behaved children with progressive minds tutored to absorb that which they  can learn from the immediate  surroundings.

East Bay May  Get Telephone  SECHELT.���A telephone   survey  which will provide communication from existing lines on  Gambier Island to the head of  East Bay has recently been completed under supervision of A.  Lee and Fred Feeney.  The proposed line will branch  at New Brighton and follow the  government trail to West Bay  then an oid logging trail to Centre Bay crossing by means of  submarine'cable. From this point  it will follow existing trails to  the proposed terminus at East  Bay, a distance of approximately  four miles.  Among those to be served will  be the Straits Towing interests  at West Bay, the Cliff Towing  Company at East Bay, Camp Ar-  taban and B.C. pulp interests at  the head of East Bay. Residents  en route will also, it is expected,  be hooked up.  The Gambier Island veterans'  unit, has long advocated and  spearheaded the move for extension. Kenneth Alexander, executive member of the unit was  local unit also an executive mem  ber of the B.C. command. He is  attending, it is believed, at the  request of the Dominion president and is earmarked to participate in social service committees.  A strong speaker on the vexatious Imperial veterans question, Drage is -also regarded as an  authority on social service. Government officials for these services are expected to be on hand  for the convention which gives  the clue to Drage's going.  He will fly to the convention  in order, to allow his return for  other  pressing engagements.  Vic Metcalf Is  Rawleigh's Man  GIBSONS���Vic Metcalf, onetime  newspaper promoter and booster of Gibsons has accepted a  position with the well known  Rawleigh Products as . salesman.  Mr. Metcalf has lived at Gower  Point for 10 years and is quite  sure his new venture will fill a  much felt want in the lives of  cooks on the peninsula.  His will be the well known  door to door service.

A special trip will be made to  look over the prize winning  flocks by Assistant District Agriculturist, D. M. Hamilton, according to a letter received.  With 15 members, each having  25 chickens, the poultry club has  alread3'- shown signs of becoming  big business among the younger  element. Chickens, following the  judging, can and do demand  higher prices than normal. There  is a breeding value tacked onto  the ordinary dost when a sale of  these winners is made.  Formed four years ago, Ed  Smith took over the reins with  only six members. "It is gradually growing," he said. "And each  one of the children has the backing of enthusiastic  parents."  Two breeds, Leghorns and  Rhode Island Reds are. carried by  the. club which is led by the two  officers already named and the  following: Beverley Allan, vice  president; Ruth Brumbaugh, secretary, and Lila Farnham, .handling publicity.  Timber Show For  Sechelt Families  SECHELT.���An   interesting   and  educational show will be presented by courtesy of the B.C.  Loggers' Association, in Legion  Hall, August 23 at 8:15 p.m.  With two main features costing  more than $25,000 each to produce, "Falling Timber" and  "Yarding Logs," the show which  includes cartoons for the younger set, will be one of the best  entertainments of- this nature  ever put on.  "It will," said Andrew Jackson  announcing the event, "be a real  opportunity for wives and mothers to see what actually happens  in the woods."  The film will show the life and  loves of a tree from the moment  the seed falls to the ground until  it becomes mature and then part  of your household furniture.  This, it is urged, is a whole  family show. There will be entertainment .for^all- tastes.    ���..  0 a  VIHOIOIA* DAVIS BAY  By  Robbie  THOSE of you who knew Mr.  and Mrs. F. Louma, who resided up the hill, overlooking the  church and bay, and where now  stands the residence of Mrs.  Lobb, will be sorry to learn that  Frank passed away at the hospital in Vancouver last week.  Prior to his departure from Davis  Bay, Frank logged quite a piece  of the land adjacent to his home.  His wife Minnie resides at Gibsons, B.C.  St. John's Church at Wilsons  Creek is without the services of  its regular pastor, Mr. William  Elliott, who has for some considerable time been suffering a  leg ailment, and has been advised to report to the military  hospital at Vancouver. Bill is  such a popular sort of guy that  it would be foolish of me to pass  up the opportunity to wish him,  on behalf of all the folks round  here, a very speedy recoverv and  safe return to pastoral duties at  both Wilson Creek and Sechelt.  ily ought to be just about straigh  By this time the Whipple  family ought to be just about  straightened out in their new  home up at Narrows Arm. They  have rented their place up the  Wilson Creek road to Mr. Harry  Baker and family of Vancouver.  Mr. Baker is working up at the  Osborne camp, and is glad of the  chance to have his family that  much nearer. The Whipples have  purchased a house at Porpoise  Bay and are having it towed up  to Narrows Arm. Well good  luck, and welcome to both.  It is- better to be safe than  sorry, so goes the old adage, and  it is with that in mind I appeal  to you to join the Community  Centre. We need the combined  efforts of the whole, rather than  "most" of the "residents, in this  area, tp get where we wish to go.  There is no end to the good we  can do. We have an ambitious  program ahead, especially where  the children are concerned, so  join at once, get on the band  wagon, and you'll never regret  it.  I AM SORRY to report one of  our stalwarts, Bert Wright, has  had to go to Shaughnessy Hospital, and right at the time  when we need all the help we  can get in order to make the Wilson Creek community efforts a  complete  success.  At our bi-monthly whist drive  on Friday last, a discussion took  place as to the advisability of  holding a beach party this Friday, or the usual whist. A vote  was taken, and the latter was decided upon. However there may  be a change in plans, and you  are asked to keep your eyes  peeled for further announcements, as we may attend to the  wants of both.  I am happy to announce one  of our newest residents won the  first prize in the ladies' battle  for honors, Mrs H. Macleod,  while Mr Teddy Cole took the  corresponding prize in the men's  section. Tommy Mutter and Mrs  J. Macleod with the lowest card,  received the consolation gifts.  Mrs Hudson with her son and  daughter are spending a few  weeks at. ihe Reid- residence as  was  Mr H.  One for the books. Who was  the lady seen buying up so many  groceries at the Trading Post, in  order to stop these horrible people from hoarding?  I don't know, nor have I any  way of. finding out, how many  countries this paper finds its  way to. But I am assured that  England, Australia, and the U.S.  are among the many. It would be  very interesting to know, exactly or thereabouts, which countries have that distinction, so I  would be very pleased to pass  the information on to our read- *  ers, if you would be kind enough  to let me know what you know,  then we'll   all know.       .

People can now truly see the strength, sagacity and foresight of the boards. AH three have  been tooting horns for some time. All three have  been publicly lauded for the work they have  done. We would point out that what has gone  before is merely the chaff of achievement. Only  the husks of challenge.  In this car ferry proposition, nibbled at by  two reputable groups ��� the Gibson Brothers and  the other, an unnamed group of business men,  some of whom are known to this paper, and are  reputable citizens quite capable of operating this  type of transport ��� lies the challenge that really  shows the leaders'  calibre.  1. Let the Boards of Trade, for once in their  lives, cooperate and unite for this one great cause.  2. Let us not hear quibbling about which  community will gain  the most.  3. Let us see that in the united front there  is a real willingness to work without fear or favor, or worry about who or what gets the glory  or the blame.  4. Bring in Mr Maclntyre. Interview Mr E. C.  Carson. Talk to the Gibson Brothers. Hold converse with this new unit. Sift and dissect the results. Then act.  5. There seems little doubt but what the Pub- -  lie Utilities Commission will be amenable to any  worthwhile idea that can assure it of success.  6. Make every effort, and unitedly it can be  a considerable effort, to   having the government  ��� view   with   lenience  and  intelligence  this   ferry  adrenalin which can make and mould the very  future, the very  economy of our lives. ,  This is not something which can be put off  as "just newspaper talk". This paper has worked  on the ferry story ever since Mr Maclntyre revealed that something was afoot when last he  visited with us.  It is now out in the open. Neither this paper  or the Boards of Trade have any axes to grind.  They can all work in unison in solving this problem.  The Coast News is more than willing to do  its part in this. We suggest the Boards get together immediately. The first moves are up to Royal Murdock, Ken Whitaker and Robert Telford.  Now is the time to throw all other considerations  aside. Now is the time to go forward together in  building a greater Peninsula, a more prosperous  place in which to live.  "Let us not fail posterity. We, today, are the  future tomorrows. Only by our combined effort  now can we live in the time to come, without remorse for having let the chance slip by.  It is up to the Boards of Trade to lead the  way.  We are looking to them for action.  Coii  To Most Drinkers  IS COFFEE a beneficial stimulant  or an enemy of sleep and  health? Medical opinion differs?,  as to whether or not coffee keeps  you awake, stimulates your circulation and appetite and aids  your digestion. A roundup of the  evidence pro and con, reveals  that while coffee affects individ-'  uals differently, "it seems harmless" to 97 per cent of those who  drink it. Three per cent are troubled by it, but about the same  proportion of humanity is allergic to milk, eggs and certainj  fruits.  Caffein content varies in different lots of coffee by as much/  as 250 per cent, but the average  cup has the equivalent of two*  plentiful pinches of salt. On the,  basis of 90 milligrans of caffeiri  in a cup of coffee, a cup of te?  has 67 milligrams, a bar of sweer  chocolate 78, and a small bottle  of a cola drink 54. The drug is 3  stimulant to the heart, brain and  urinary tract. Administered as a  heart stimulant, the normal dose  of caffein would be as much as  is contained in three cups of cofj  fee. ATiundred cups, if you could  drink them one after another  would give you a fatal dose o  caffein. There is no record o  a caffein fatality, the report ob  serves.  i  This 'n That  By E.

THE COAST NEWS,   Monday,   Aug. 14,   1950  Sechelt Girl  Guide Evdnts  SECHELT.���Wednesday will be  the day when local Guides will  join with Vancouver units in a  camping week at Guide Camp,  Wilson Creek.  Miss Kay Boult. cantain of the  West Point Gray group will be in  charge of the camp. August 20  will be visitor's day.  Captain E. G. Derby has issued  a general invitation to mothers  to join her on the 2:45 p.m. bus  from Sechelt that day and she  will guide them through the  camp and show them all the  finer points learned by the girls  at camp which are so often missed at home.  August 22 has been set as the  date for the 2nd Sechelt Guide  company to hold a picnic at Girl  Guide Camp. Campers will leave  on that day from Sechelt on the  2:45 bus and return from Wilson  Creek on the 10 p.m.  Girls are asked to bring their  supper on this jaunt, also, if  weather provides, a bathing suit.  Shorts should be worn if the  elements are suitable.  It is the hope of Mrs. Derby  that many second class Guides  are at hand by opening date. If  any girl has lost any of the  papers dealing with the health  chart that was to be kept during  the holidays, duplicate papers  may be had from Mrs. Derby.  FOR  THE   KITCHEN  STOVE?

Miss Driver arrived at class  with its expectant children and  informed them the turtle had  escaped. Instead of two turtles  they had looked forward to, there  was only one left.  Last week, the escaped turtle  returned to Jack Mayne's garden  from where it had originally  escaped a decade ago. "It was  the same turtle," said Mrs.  Mayne, "we had the original  marked for identificatioon."  It was a glad day in the hearts  of the Glendalough people.  Everyone was glad the little animal was safe and had lived  through the bad winters. Bigger  and stronger, the turtle stalked  across the lawn and headed to  where the boys were playing.  That was a sad error.  The little turtle was killed by  some thoughtless youth "having  fun."

A serious drowning accident  was averted last week through  training in first aid and artificial  respiration while in the RCAF.  Young Wilson Anderson, son of  Mr and Mrs Alec Anderson, got  into difficulties in the sea in  front of his home. Wilson, unable  to swim, was playing in the  water with an inflated inner tube  and floated out of his depth.  When he went to get off his float  he sank, and it was only after  repeated dives by his father that  he was finaly brought to the surface. Alec carried out artificial  respiration until the arrival of  Dr Inglis. Wilson is now recovered but it is doubtful if the parents will feel fully recovered until Wilson learns to swim.

There has been a suggestion that the opening of the  wharf should be celebrated with  an open air dance thereon.

MACINTYRE  WE SPENT an hour yesterday at  the invitation of Mr. A. R.  Reeves looking at his breathtaking display of begonias, which  are now at the height of their  beauty.  The large greenhouse is a blaze  of color, and we came away dazzled; also uplifted, and confident  that the world after all is still  wonderful,   thanks  to gardeners.  Mr. Reeves wants to share this  beautiful sight with you, and has  asked us to make public his invitation to all who may be interested, to visit his home. We  think it is one of the most  beautiful on the peninsula.  At any time, either Mr. Reeves  or his housekeeper, Mrs. Warlow,  will be glad to show you the  greenhouse and the garden. No  one should miss this generous  offer.  If you don't know where the  place is, ask in the village; it is  near the second bridge out from  Roberts Creek centre, on the  north side of the road.  Mr. Reeves has lived here for  over thirty years and has quite  a reputation as a gardener and  horticulturist, with cups and  medals to boot. His experience  before leaving Southampton,  England, included supervision of  the gardens and greenhouses of  some of the famous estates in  the Old Country. Roberts Creek  can be justly proud of this accomplished citizen and his hospitable home.  Do come and see those begonias.  Aug. 19 To Be  Pender's Day  PENDER HARBOUR-r-Plans are  finally shaping up for the  bumper all-day regatta slated for  August 19.  According to committee chairman Lloyd Davis, this is going  to be the one to end all regattas.  Professional and high grade  ,amateurs will be on hand from  the city to demonstrate and compete against each other in the  swimming events. High diving  and every type of nautical sport  will also be on the programme.  There will be boat events ^ of  every conceivable kind and it is  all due to end with the bumper  dance at Madeira Park Community Hall, Saturday night.  It was in this hall where one  of the best dances in the history  of the peninsula was held recently. It is believed this one  will outdo even that memorable  event in hilarity and fun for all.
