Vol. 5 ��� No. i/ ^��H*> Gibsons,  B. C.  Monday, Sept. 4, 1950  5c per copy, $2.00 per year, by mail  VIC METCALF, "the man with  the ointment ���'=- Rawleigh's,"  was in just a few days ago telling us all about the future of the  Sechelt peninsula. It seems if  Vic had his way there would be  car ferries and liners and probably submarines pulling in every  few minutes from Vancouver and  all points other than the Sechelt  peninsula. If that type of enthusiasm could only be harnessed there would be a very fine  summer resort here in a few  days.  Only trouble is, how can the  enthusiasm be harnessed? The  Board of Trade certainly gets  little of it. We would suggest  that anyone with a good idea, in  fact with any idea, should try it  out at the Board of Trade and  see what-happens to it.  Don't push, please. We know  the board has probably killed  more brain births than enough  in. its day. But until something  better comes along we would  suggest you give it another  chance.  Bert Cole, no relation to the  King, of song fame, was telling  me about his days when he ran  the ration board here during the  war. Seems he has some of the  weirdest letters, received when  he was running down illicit meat  dealers and what have you. One  lady, we say that advisedly,  wrote and told Bert, she didn't  want ��� "any ^xX "snooping around  this place."

All this and more is- spated toward the person unwary enough  to mention the word.  ' I strolled into the display  during the fair and ran into ?,��  eye opener. Batt Maclntyre was  telling Mrs. J. S. Browning that  he was amazed at the fine work.  I was standing behind him for a  few minutes and shared it with  him. Nothing like getting in the  limelight, even if it is only reflected.  According to one of the daily  papers, Batt is one cracker jack  poker player. He is also very  good at ordering fizzy drinks and  then getting into a deep conversation with fellows like Jules  Mainil and then forgetting to pay  for the drinks. That was lesson  number one for me.  Bright spot of that deal was  that I met Mrs: Mainil and Mrs.  Maclntyre, both very charming  ladies. I. didn't have enough  nerve to toss them for payment  while Batt was telling Jules all  about a tfip'he had made to Nanaimo in that miniature Queen  Mary he owns.  This column is full of warnings  this week. The next one is, if  you are not hungry, do hot go  near Mrs. Jack Mayne's Glendalough guest house at Sechelt.  Before paying that outstanding  hostess a visit, one^ should fast  for at least two weeks. The me?ls  there are not only- among the  largest but also the best prepared  it has been my good luck to run  into.  Cohoe Fail to  Appear Locally  GIBSONS ��� The long  expected  Cohoe run has failed to appear  at the time of going to press. .  Local fishermen have been  sitting beyond Shoal Passage for  several days without taking in  one fish. No reason has been  given for the sudden drop off as  it is expected northern waters  may well yield bigger catches  than for many previous years.  It is now a case of wait and  hope with most of the smaller  outfits. .   *   - >  Bus Lines, reported there was  little his firm was going to do to  aid either Keats or Gambier Island.  , Said Mr Frith, "Our service  and our franchise depends on a  service between Gibsons and  HorsesTioe Bay. We cannot do  anything which will jeopordize  this."  In an off-the-record talk, the  Sea Bus manager discussed the  question of car ferries and offered suggestions re transport to  the outlying districts.  Robert - Macnicoll pointed out  that many people on the islands,  Twin Creeks ahd Seaside Park  were now without means of getting to town. "Something should  be done \ about these people, he  said..  -  Robert     Telford    and    James  Drummond ..agreed���':::there  was  a  L 'fli^^^d^rponsibilii^ on  the:; shoulders of the government  to provide!at least some means  of transport."  W. Sutherland pointed out  that many settlers on the island  have set up houses there relying  on the government to enforce  continuance of the then present  transport facilities. "It was a  matter cf trust in their government, which has been spurned,"  he said.  The wire to Mr Sinclair will  stress the emergency nature of  the difficulty and will .urge action as speedily as possible.  You Had Better  Pay Water Bill  GIBSONS���Notice   of   a   motion  adding teeth to the water bylaw was entered by Commissioner Mrs. E. Nestman at a regular  meeting of the village commission, Wednesday.  It is expected the new regulation will add ten per cent to all     hearing there had been a  small  Quick Thinking  Halts Tragedy  GIBSONS���There  are two  sides  to   police   work   and   Kristian  Westvan is more than glad.  Tuesday      morning      heralded  white  water in   the   sound   and  Roberts Creek at about 4:45 a.m.    that was the time Mr. Westvan's  B. C. Airlines, swore to piloting  both   men  to   the   bay  opposite  that day, and waiting while they  went into the woods.  Then minutes before they returned, Sylvester noted heavy  black smoke arising from . the  woods nearby.  Sylvester said the ticket for  the plane ride was signed by  Carl Noel and B. Wilson, later  identified as Felix Letain.  According  to  evidence  at   the  water bills overdue. It was  pointed out there are water bills  from 1949 still outstanding.  "A peculiar thing about these  overdue bills," said the water  committee chairman, "is that  most of the outstanding and'late  payers are the people better able  to pay them. The little fellow is  usually very prompt with his  dues:"  fire at the house five days previous to the blaze which destroyed it.  / There was also evidence that  Letain was the owner of the  house, and had taken out more  fire insurance before the fire.  Constable W. A. Peterson laid  the charge against Letain and  Noel, who were represented by  Mark Cosgrove and O. L. Hill.  gillnetter  motor decided   to  act  up, by ceasing to function.  So high was the water there  was imminent danger of the wallowing boat sinking under the  mighty waves. Mr. Westvan,  took to the dingy in order to  head his boat into the waves.  He had been at this some considerable time when he was  spotted by alert Vincent Mair,  Bonnybrook Lodge. Mr. Mair  reported the desperate straits to  Constable W. A. Peterson, R.C.-  M.P., who, in turn enlisted the  aid of Ray Fletcher and his boat.  In a very short time the very  grateful and relieved Mr. West-  van was safe in port.  "It could quite easily have  been tragic," said Constable  Peterson. He lauded the quick  thinking of Mr. Mair in reporting  the occurrence.  WD. P. Ross  GIBSONS���Passed   away  at   his  home on the prairie, W. D. P.  Ross, late of Hillside Cottage, in  his 9.0th year.  Mr.. Ross had been a patient in  Vancouver Hospital and had recovered sufficiently to make the  trip back to his family's home on  the prairie. While there he again  had to enter hospital with a relapse which proved fatal.  Undernourished Kids  Find Sechelt Haven  SECHELT���Tucked away in the  shade of giant firs and cooled  by the washing waves of the  Georgian gulf, lies a camp for  under-privileged children that  will some day grow to become a  regular Valhalla of memories.  Sponsored    by    Gamma     Phi  ENTRANCED STARE is given one of the first prizes by Jimmy Melyea at jte&^Hffi10'  Howe Sound Fall Fair sponsored by Gibsons and District Farmers7  Institute.The  fair, complete with midway under supervision of the Kinsmen Club, and carnival and  exhibition, was described as one of the best yet staged.  Beta sorority, the camp is free to  children with parents unable to  afford such luxuries.  Gamma Phi Beta is an international sorority with 59 active  chapters throughout Canada and  the U.S.A. It supports two  camps for underprivileged girls,  one in Denver, .Colorado, and the  other at  Sechelt.  The parent sorority is located  at University of B.C. and it is  they who manage and work the  Sechelt camp.  Children accepted are suggested by the public school nurses,  irrespective of race, color or religion. The Metropolitan Health  offers free medicals to these  youngsters. Carfare to and from  these checkups for both child and  parent is supplied by the sorority.  No fee for camp or boatfare is  .charged or accepted and the children are asked not to bring  spending money or toys.  On arrival at camp their  clothes are checked away and  for the two-week period they are  fully equipped and clothed by  Gamma Phi Beta. Each child is  a?ked to bring a pair of shoes  and a bathing suit if possible.  These, if necessary, and all other  articles as well as toothbrushes,  face cloths and towels are supplied at camp.  From Des Moines, Iowa, and  Kansas, Missouri, come gifts of  ditty bags for the children in  which to keep their toilet articles.  These also may be taken home.  This year's operations are  financed by donations from  nearly every  state in the urtion.  The camp caters to 60 children per year, in batches of'30  who spend two weeks each.

Klein announce the engagement of  their elder daughter Vivian  Leone to Mr. Michael Hyrycyna.  The wedding will take place at  St. Mary's 'Church, Vancouver,  September 5, at 1 p.m.  Mr. John Shields was host to  Walter Sandberg and Don Sleep  at his home in Vancouver. The  occasion being a visit to the  P.N.E.  Mrs. Peggy Harding and Mr.  Tom Sanders have been the  guests of Mr. and Mrs. Shields  at their summer home.  _The W.A. to the Canadian Legion, Branch 219, held a sale of  work and home cooking at the  home of Mrs. Pete Edmunds on  Saturday,  Aug. 26.  Some people seem to be able  to catch fish around here. On  Monday afternoon with the tide<  at its worst and a bright sun  shining, Emma Edmunds assisted by Billy Nesbitt landed a 12-  pound cod off the end of the  pier. We can go out with the  ��� latest thing in tackle and everything else in our favor and come  home without even catching a  cold.  Mrs. Clarence Hill of North  Vancouver was the guest of her  sister-in-law, Miss Margaret Mclntyre of Greenacres.  A party of Roberts Creek residents took time off from their  various duties last Tuesday, hired  all the taxis in the district, connected with a speedboat at Porpoise Bay and took off for Clowhom Falls. We think the scenic  beauties of this peninsula are not  advertised enough. Salmon Arm  is a miniature Norway, complete  with rough and craggy mountains that reach into the skies at  one end and fall sheer into  choppy green seas at the other.  There are waterfalls, icefields  and glaciers and deep slow moving green rivers. In fact if we  had not seen it with our own  eyes; we woulcl; never have believed that any;thinjk. so magnificent - existed .Xso'Xckjse r to'; the  placid little hills of "Roberts  Creek.  The party went ashore at the  Universal Wood Products settlement and lunch was eaten on  the banks of the river. Unfortunately the trip home was considerably lengthened, not to say  marred by the behaviour of the  boat engine, which turned out to  be most unco-operative, to say  the least of it. First of all, it  refused to start at all. A new  battery was tried, which promptly ran down, another battefy  followed suit, then a combination was tried, hooked up to  each other in various ways. Still  no results.' By this time most  of the mechanics from the logging camp had arrived on the  scene and the back of the boat  was swarming with experts. As  a last resort a 12-point battery  was brought into action, one  guaranteed to move a fleet of tug  boats. It sure did. It nearly  lifted us out of the water. We  started for home in a forest of  crossed fingers which all came  uncrossed when the fan belt  broke half an hour later.  An old fan belt was found and  put on in place of the broken  one. Fingers were crossed again  and fervent prayers went up as  we started off once more . Ten  miles further the fan belt broke  again. The less said from now  on the better. Four batteries  and five fanbelts later we ar-..  rived at Porpoise Bay. Roberts  Creek was meanwhile in a state  of complete demoralization. No  transportation. All the taxis  sitting on the wharf at Porpoise  Bay, twelve entirely respectable  members of the community to  all intents and purposes lost at  sea.  We arrived home to find the  baby sitter we had engaged to  look after the dogs, cats, chickens, and visitor, striding up and  down the road, tearing his hair  and far too unset to have thought  of feeding himself, let alone the  animals.  A final word before ending this  story. The heartiest congratulations of all go to the driver of  the boat for the fortitude displayed ��under most trying conditions, and also to the taxi drivers  for their "good humor and patience shown during their long  wait. lX  And now all  you people who  PENDER HARBOUR  By "SARAI/  Tlie Volunteer Brigade  IT WAS   only   a   small   fire,  entailing  a  minor  amount in monetary loss but it was a fire  and therefore dangerous   to the community.  Exactly two and one-half minutes following  the location being flashed to Telephone Operator  Mrs H. Winn, the Gibsons Volunteer Fire Brigade  was there, complete with fire hoses and extinguishers.  Such a short time lapse would doubtlessly  cause comment even in Vancouver where there  are complete brigades just waiting at the starting  line���tensed and ready to roll. But .when such  efficiency and promptitude is displayed here, it  is something worthy  of congratulation.  We feel we speak for everyone when we give  a verbal rjat on the back to those men of the  brigade who dropped their duties and sprang  into property and   life-saving action.  It must be remembered that our fire laddies  are always at a disadvantage when the wailing  call of the siren is heard. They are ever spread  from one end of the village to the other. Several  of them are actually tieing groceries or hardware  when the call goes out. Some of them are in the  middle of loading huge timbers or barrels onto  trucks. These are left practically in mid-air while  the prior call of preservation is answered.  Our brigade, at the moment, may be a motley  group of vehicles and variously dressed men,, but  that fails to detract from their honest, enthusiastic urge to help.  These men have the first essentials of real  firemen. They are eager to do battle with the  scourge which could easily ravage this village  from end to end.  At two in the morning or three in the afternoon the answer is always the same, "Let's go."  We know there is a thrill and dash to a fire  brigade which is shared in no small degree by  the men themselves but there is something deeper than just adventure motivating our unit.  It is charged with a sense of duty to the community. There, is the first principles of true socialism���the highest form of government. Service  to the other fellow without thought of remuneration. It is the practical application of the golden  rule.  We are proud to know these men. They are  a credit to the community " and when they have  their own fire hall and better equipment they  will be of even greater service to us���if that be  possible.  Please let us remember the work they do  when next they need financial help to obtain  more equipment. Even then, the brigade gives  you extra for your money by means of a dance  or  show  or entertainment.  These men are working for you without  thought of pay.  Show your appreciation. Back the volunteer  fire brigade.  SECHELT WEST  By MARGARET ALLAN  H���UMWgl  MR.   AND   Mrs.   Genower   celebrated  their 50th wedding anniversary on August 30.

Crabapples, grapes and   plums  so blue,  Make sparkling jellies of diverse  hue,  Fill the jars and pack the shelf,  Winter joy for family and self.  The home economists of the  Consumer Section, Canada Department of Agriculture, say that  it is easy to make jelly - that is  clear, sparkling and tender with  the rich, full flavor of sun-ripened fruit . . . provided you know  the rules. Good jellies, however,  cannot be made from all fruit  juices by "rule o' thumb". Jelly  making is an art, founded on scientific principles.  To make perfect jelly, pectin,  acid, sugar and water must be in  the right proportions. Pectin, the  jelly-making substance, and acid  are found in the fruits in varying amounts. The amount of sugar and water to be added, must  be accurately determined. Food  scientists tell us  that  the   addi-  '   X    ' ,    '     '   s      ', '* vs-',*. ���  tion of sugar to a fruit juice rich  in pectin causes the pectin to  form an intricate network, within which the syrup is entrapped.  The strength of. this network depends upon the amount of pectin  present. The addition of too  much water or too much sugar,  weakens the network and the  syrup is not held in firmly  enough to form a true jelly. If  there is too much acid or if not  enough sugar has been added,  the jelly will be tough, because  acid strengthens the pectin network.  Crabapples which are not fully ripe contain a large amount of  pectin, so should be completely  covered with water. Grapes and  sour plums have a little less pectin than the crab, so water  enough to come just below the  top layer of prepared fruit is  sufficient. Simmer the fruit and  water in a covered kettle until  the fruit is soft and mushy,  crushing during cooking. Then  pour the hot cooked fruit into a  moistened jelly bag made of factory cotton, flannel or several  thicknesses of fine cheesecloth.  Hang up over a bowl and allow  to drain until dropping ceases.

The pectin test consists of  measuring 1 teaspoon of fruit  juice and 1 teaspoon of rubbing  alcohol into a small dish and  blending them together. If after  standing 30 seconds a jelly-like  mass has formed, the juice contains sufficient pectin. Sugar  may then be added. Do not taste  this mixture ��� rubbing alcohol  is poisonous.  Measure sugar, allowing % cup  sugar for each cup of extracted  juice, except when a heavy solid  clot form when pectin test is  made at the end of the three-  minute boiling period. This  heavy clot indicates that the  juice is so rich in pectin that  one cup of sugar for each cup of  extracted juice should be used.  Add measured sugar slowly to  juice. Boil briskly, uncovered,  remove scum as it forms.  To test when jelly is done, dip  up the boiling hot syrup, with a  metal spodn, holding well above  kettle, and allow it to run off  the edge. When two drops form  and then flow together to form a  "sheet", the jelly stage has been  reached. Immediately remove  from the heat. Longer boiling  will give a stiff, tough jelly.  Let hot juice stand in kettle for  about one minute and remove  iast bit of scum with a cold fork  or spoon.  Pour into hot, sterilized jelly  glasses, filling to within %' inch  of the top. Using a slightly moistened clean cloth, carefully remove any jelly clinging to inside of jelly glass above the jelly level.  Let stand until partially set,  then pour a thin layer of hot,  .melted paraffin wax to completely cover the jelly and leave  until hardened. Then add a second layer of hot melted wax, rotating  the jar so that  the  wax  * #ill (adhere to tht^fKiiiiXtrbfform'  a close seal. Cover with paper or  metal lid and store in a cool, dry  place.

Mr and Mrs Ron  Larsen took the children down  to the Exhibition and thought  this would be an experience for  them. All the family went flying, they hope to do it again  soon.

Undernourished Kids  (Continued from Page 1)  the conclusion that Sechelt had  more to offer than any' other  property looked at. In the words  of a camp councillor, "This area  is very much up and coming and  with a great future, and a  worthy spot to invest our  money."  There is no set routine or  closely defined program at this  camp. The children live as one  big family, helping with the  dishes and chores, keeping their  rooms tidy, learning new songs  and prayers and having picnics  and parties.  Some of the youngsters have  only been to a beach once or  twice in their lives. It has been  found that fresh air, good meals  and lots of sleep are a great boon  to these youngsters. They often  show a weight gain of several  pounds following their two-week  vacation.

Main expense  money for  this  very worthy  project comes from  . donations made by each member  of the sorority, contributing to a  general camp fund.  Neighbors are, in sympathy  with the girls operating the camp  which includes four guest cottages by the side of the main  camp, and are contributing  knowledge and labor toward  getting the camp's conveyance,  a 1929 Ford truck, into running  order.  The swimming area is patrolled religiously by seniors in a  non-tip rowboat. While the  health of inmates is checked by  means of periodical visits from  Victorian Order of Nurses who  pass daily the front gates of the  camp���or rather where the gates  will soon be.  Dr. Duncan McColl is in charge  of testing all drinking water and  is the final authority in anything  pertaining to health or health  precautions.  The camp keeps a case history  of each child. Such information,  is used in the handling of each  child resulting in a better individual treatment than would  otherwise be feasible in a camp  run on easier lines.  Each of the five counsellors has  five children in her charge, leaving the camp director free for  planning picnics, weiner roasts,  fishing parties, guessing games  and what have you?  Said one of the camp counsellors, "These children show their  appreciation unconsciously in  ways that tend to make you even  more  determined to   help."  Said one little tyke on arrival  at camp, "I'm so hungry I can  hardly wait for lunch."  "You can't be hungry so  soon,"  said the counsellor,  "you  Skinny men, women  gain 54M5 lbs.

Boultbee, 2175 Nelson Avenue, West Vancouver,  Vancouver Camp chairman, sums  up the spirit in this fashion.  "The people of Sechelt have  been most kind and seem to feel,  as we do, that our Phi Beta camp  is a very worthy project and they  are most willing to help us in any  way. We are grateful for their  attitude and hope that as our  camp grows to something bigger  and better each year, that we  and the people of Sechelt may  be proud of one of the finest  fresh air camps on the Pacific  coast."  liter s m\i  All Types and Sizes  New Low Prices  PHONE GIBSONS 50  ance  CHUCK'S MUSIC  1  Novelties Refreshments  .
