Monday, Sept-. 25, 1950  5c per copy, $2.00 per year, by moil  BILL SUTHERLAND  Editor, The Coast News  LAST week was convention week  as far as the weekly newspapers of B.C. were concerned.  From Wednesday to Saturday  everyone interested in the. "grass  roots" voice���that's what all convention guest speakers call weekly editors���discussed everything  that has ever been done in the  weekly paper world.  One point of interest was the  story that a certain weekly newspaper in B.C. had used scented  ink in its advertisement four or  five years ago. I was foolish  enough;- to say that probably the  first time it was used was with  the Vancouver Sun about a  month ago. Such, I was emphatically told, is not so.  ��� Jack Allen, the carpenter, was  tell rae he. has a relation who  runs the weekly newspaper out  in Cloverdale. There are more  people in this area related to  newspapermen or have actually  operated a paper themselves than  could print the next ten years'  issues of the Encyclopedia Bri-  tannica.  Talking about carpenters reminds me that one of the hardest  working, men during the recent  building bees at Gambier Harbour was John Cattanach. The  industrious Scotsman, who hails  from around Morayshire way,  seemed to do twice the work  that others were.  ! Ed-Smith, the fish . arid chips  man. was telling me about an  idea he has for the future, "when  VI can get my hands on some  loose change." Ed did "very  well," for himself when he  ran  .three months. That is the sort  of initiative that deserves to win  but.  y "Gabe" of the Tesella Shoppe  in Sechelt was one of the worried ones when Father O'Dwyer  (.was sick. "He certainly is a nice  oman," said the sorrowful Gabriel,  I hope he gets back on his feet  verv soon."  While on the subject of Reverend gentlemen ��� I presume all  men with Reverend are gentlemen���I had a little talk; with Mr.  [Oswald, that good natured man  i who spends a lot of his time doling little jobs for other neople  without any fanfare. He is  .anxious to get notices in the  Coast News with regard to  church services. These will appear when we have our presses  |in and can make our deadlines  and date of issue come a little  closer.

It is believed the first class on  Friday will be more or less a  "feeler" for the ladies interested.  More information and details  will be in the Coast News of  later issues.  Fishing Poles  Are Scientific _  GSst)N��-^6f ~ititer��st"to   locaT  fishermen is the following  item  from   Canadian Fishermen;  -The "Salar^" operating from  Vancouver, has taken on aluminum poles. Most fishing vessels  are equipped with fir sticks.  The "Salar's" poles are made  of IPS Alcan 65ST alloy aluminum piping. Aluminum has two ���.  great advantages over the wooden poles. Unlike the wooden  poles, they will not break and  their light weight is a boon to  small fishing vessels, as the  heavy wooden poles are inclined  to make the vessels top heavy.  The "Salar" is a 44-foot vessel  and is owned by Captain Harvey  Ryall.  According to Canadian Fisherman, this new application of  aluminum is being watched with  keen interest by fishermen on  both the west and east coasts.  It's A Girl  SECHELT ��� Born to Mr. and  Mrs. E. R. A. McFarlane, West  Sechelt, a daughter, Wendy  Elizabeth, September 9, 'at home  A sister for Danny and Rickey.  Selma Ladies Drive  For Sale and Bazaar  SELMA PARK���Mrs S. McKay was elected convenor of an enthusiastic group of ladies, recently met in the .Community  Hall in order to discuss the coming Annuar Bazaar.  Weekly meetings,  in order to L-   promote   and   prepare   for   the  bazaar are in   the   offing under  leadership   of Mrs. Murphy who  has agreed to guide the sewing  group.  Articles for sale will include  the group's products which will  not alone provide money for the  very worthy aims of these ladies  but will add experience to the-  younger ladies in the making of  children's clothes and knitting.  Rug making will be included  in the group's work. These, also  will be for sale as will candy in  a specially prepared booth near  the homecooking stand.  There will be a display of several attractive drawings which  may be for sale but more details  will be given here later.  The Community Hall itself,  noAV being loaned as church and  rented to various groups including the public health department  ��� for Well Baby clinics there, was  first started four years ago as a  discussion group in the Selma  Park Store. The hall now includes a completely furnished  club room, while redecoration is  under way,' inside and out.  It is hoped to realize enough  money from the bazaar to help  defray cost of a piano.  Community service is their  standard and a small group  working together as these ladies  have done during the past four  years, can easily achieve results  of which to be proud.  who would like to  place such as this  school as well."  "Our service is the same as that  of any Vancouver boarding  school but we could allow pupils  to go home every week end from  here. That would then be boarding school efficiency and discipline combined with the home influence. Children would always  be under the supervision of parents if they were to utilize Wonderland Camp,"  Mrs. Forst said.  Wonderland Camp catered to  children from. Western Canada  and the United States this summer. Trained university graduates were on hand to help the  girls from six to sixteen.  It is rated as being well run  "and-'-organizedj v^ith- --proper ���..> -acy  commodation, food and discipline.  The Coast News has inspected  this camp and believes it to be a  rep'utable camp, fit for girls.  NEW NURSE  MISS ANNE BAKER was   welcomed by board members at a  recent    meeting   of   Elphinstone  branch,      Victorian      Order     of  Nurses.  A graduate  o f Vancouver  General Hospital and B.A.  Sc. of nursing  from University of British  Columbia, Mis_s.  Baker also  nursed for five  years in the  Surrey and Burnaby branches.  Miss Mabel Cooper, Wilson  Creek, was appointed relief nurse  at the meeting. The meeting decided in view of increased costs  of the service to raise visit fee to  $1.25, which would be more in  line with fee charged by other  British Columbia branches.  Financial    statements    showed  another $900 needed to complete  ; the objectives for the year.  Auxiliaries reported active  programs. A fashion show slated  for Gibsons, and an auction sale  in Sechelt. Dates of these items  are announced in the  Date Pad.  Sechelt Firemen  Drive for Fund  SFCHELT���In an effort to boost  their now slim capital, this  community's volunteer fire brigade, under Chief Fred Mills, will  sponsor a bumper dance and entertainment at Roberts Creek,  October 21.  "Further details will be released at a later" date," the fire-  chief said. "We are attempting  to raise enough money so the  brigade will have a backlog for  various things needed in the way  of replacements and small items  it is hard to detail in a list for  donations."  Further details of the .. event  will appear in later issues of this  paper.  GIBSONS���Pressure which well may force readjustment of the  federal lottery laws, was brought to bear on the Ottawa  government by a national committee of veterans headed by Legion Council Member Robert Macnicoll.  ' ~ ' p ~ ~ ���X-        Returning    from  the  national  convention in Winnipeg, Mr.  Macnicoll told the Coast News  his committee, including members from every province, "had  made a thorough examination of  provincial enforcement of Section 236 of the Criminal Code  and had found an inequality in  its administration which was surprising."  Macnicoll also acted as chairman of the organization and development committee for the national body at the meeting which  was attended by 600 delegates.  Delegates forced Hon. Hugues  Lapointe, minister of veterans'  affairs, to concede a need for a  parliamentary committee of veterans for advisory purposes. He  will recommend the re-establishment of this group at next session of parliament, Mr. Macnicoll  reported.  "Unfortunately," said Mr. Macnicoll. "owing to lack of time,  full discussion on every angle of  my committee's recommendations  could not be heard. They will be  discussed at the Dominion council of the Canadian Legion to be  held in Ottawa in November.'*  Matters to be dealt with then  will   include   illegal   entry   into  .. Canada   of jalleged. col^bqrators,  ' "DoukhoFors; ancf ^H^imrnigraiion  laws.  The veteran provincial secretary for the Legion here, had  some views of his own to pass  along following his "illuminating" trip.  "Meeting people on the train  and in Winnipeg, I came back to  British Columbia with the impression that among veterans  there is a growing resentment at  the delay in dealing with requests on behalf of very low income groups, and that whether  veterans or not, the people who  are suffering from the continuous increase in the cost of living  are becoming unsettled to the  point that will eventually endanger the political future of the  Ottawa government unless they  adopt some more definite procedure to improve conditions.

In fact, we may make ihe  trip over io see thai everything  is done right this time.  Two weeks ago we ran a siory  about Mrs. Atchison getting ihe  job of postmistress ai New  Brighton. We believed such was  the case from information received.  We were informed, following  the story, thai Mrs. Atchison had  been granted the contract for  conveying mails from Gambier  Harbour to New Brighton and  not appointed postmistress.  We corrected that story and  ran it through the following  week pointing out there had been  no  change  in postmasters.  We now have to state thai  there will be a new postmaster or  postmistress, the present postmaster, Mr. Negroponte, has resigned. New Brighton is , now  IboKinjg/ for   aisolhef ypostinM^i?  We are afraid lo say for sure  but we think that one of the  rumours or stories has a chance  of being half correct, we surmise  and  believe and   understand.  Next time, we shall try for a  sworn affidavit from the postmaster general.  p p.   ������     -���.%%.  Information On  Potato Growing  GIBSONS ���  Peninsula  farmers  who are interested in the  growing of potatoes may find the  following of value.  The B.C. Federation of Agriculture has received word  through Norman Putnam, field  crops commissioner, that Hon.  Harry  Bowman   has   announced  the B.C.   government will  oper- ., . __._e.___.  ate two acre test plots at Ocean-     }aym�� ^e carrying out of prom  side, California, for the benefit  of B.C. seed potato growers.  It is the B.C. Federation of  Agriculture's wish that as many  growers as possible take advan-.  tage of this as most of the domestic, as well as the United  States sales will, in future, be  based on the readings from these  plots.  Full regulations covering your  samples for testing will be pub  ises made some time ago by  those who aspired to political  office. We must, if necessary,  fight a war, but we must also  take care of the needs of those  who reauire attention, if we are  to refrain from playing into the  hands of those who would sabotage our way of life."  Iished by the B.C. Department of  Agriculture at an early date.  Peninsula Gets Long  Promised Road Flush  SECHELT���Double flushing of the Sechelt portion of the main  highway is now under way.  Trucks  and equipment  started      "  work Tuesday. The limit has  been ,set at the' bridge immediately east of the Standard Motors Garage No 1 and will join  with the blacktop end at the for-  estrv station in Sechelt.  Gibsons end of the double  flushing will start immediately  following completion of the  Sechelt area.  Crews of workmen have been  re-surveying the engineer's line  between the end of the highway  and the Champion and White  gravel pit.  According    to  a public wo��___IAH3S  spokesman,   "No   specific ^orders  have been issued in respect   to  start of construction."  It was first believed the survey  would go as far as the gravel pit  but the line has now been re-  surveyed immediately' above and  past the gravel workings. It is  believed this could tie in with  strong suggestion that "Port Mellon has been sold ahd will start  operation "at least as far as con-  (Continued on Page 8)  VIH010IA What to do About  Crab Apples  STARTING today, The Coast  News brings you a new service, believing it will be of benefit to housewives on the peninsula.  Said author Miss Pinchin, "All  my recipes have been personally  tested and I know they are of  value and guarantee they are  good."  We also believe that. That is  Why we take pleasure in printing  them.  (Ed.)  Crabapples are ripening now,  and are appearing on the market  ready for you to use for those  tangy preserves   and jellies.  Transcendents are the first  crabapples to be offered in the  stores. They usually arrive  around the middle of August,  and are available for about three  weeks. They are yellow in color  and have pink cheeks. They are  not as common as the Hyslops in  B.C.  Hyslops come later in the season. They are normally on the  market around the first or second week in September. These  are the crabapples that are ripe  and ready to use now. They are  bright red in color with a white  bloom and they make marvellous jelly.  Crabapples of either variety  have plenty of pectin and acid  for jelly-making. They should  not be over-ripe, however, for  the best results. If they are  mealy and have lost their crisp-  ness, they are over-ripe.  This jelly is good as a spread  for toast or bread, and is also a  good accompaniment for pork.  Crabapples are good in every  way for jelly-making. Here is  the best way to get clear, luscious  jelly.  Wash crabapples and .cut into  Quarters. Be sure to cut through  the cores, so that the pectin  around the core is released.  Choose a clear, bright day for  making jelly because water  evaporates more quickly when  there is less moisture in the air  and it is easier to get good results.  Put the washed, cut fruit into  a large preserving kettle with  enough water to almost coyer,  the crabapples. Cover and cook  until the fruit is soft. Stir occasionally and use a potato  masher to crush the fruit.  Dip the jellv bag into boiling  water and wring out quite dry.  Put fruit into bag and hang to  drain for several hours or overnight. If you want nice clear  jellv, don't squeeze the bag.  Put the sugar to heat for 10 to  12 minutes, allowing % cup of  sugar to each cup of juice. Boil  t.he juice for 10 to 12 minutes.  Then, measure the juice "and add  one cup of the heated sugar for  each cud of the prepared, boiled-  down juice.  Boil together until the jelly  forms two thick drops that run  together on the. edge of the  spoon. Pour into hot. sterilized  jars and cover jars with a clean  cloth and let set .until firm. Seal  with melted wax and place  covers on jars or tie paper over  the tops.  SPICED  CRABAPPLE  JELLY  This is really good if you like  a bit of soice in your cooking as  well as in your life. Add 1  tablespoon lemon juice and 1/16  teaspoon cinnamon to each cup  of juice before adding the sugar.  This is really good with meats,  and is wonderful on pancakes  and waffles, too.  PICKLED   CIABAPPLES  These are really delicious! And  so pretty on a relish tray. They  are perfect with cold meats. This  is the best recipe I have for  pickled crabapples. I am sure  that your family will enjoy them  as much as mine has in past  years.

Editorial    Department,    Gibsons    45  Telephones:  Commercial     Printing,     Gibsons    45  THE ABOVE means so very little to most of us  ���scarcely worthy of a second thought. We  are used to reading editorials in the daily and  weekly papers, subconsciously knowing that,  despite the rot they may be, they are still the  honest belief   of the newspaper in question.  And therein lies the true stature of press  freedom.  No question is in the reader's mind but what  the editorial writer or the paper actually believes  what is written. It is beyond our comprehension to  think otherwise.  Let ho man believe that that unconscious acceptance merely happened. You read this editorial with doubt or belief, but never with thought  of it being forced or of who ordered it. It is  written without'coersion on the part of the government or any party or the Army or the Police  Force or any hidden political power.  You never doubt that. You know such is  the irrevocable truth.  It may behoove us well to remember the  cost in buying your attitude of acceptance because bought it was.  Thousands  of gallons  of human blood   have  been spilled  in order for you to read this.   Millions  of men have died  to give you the feeling '  which   you   accept  with   such   surprised,   raised  eyebrows, now that it has been mentioned.  As you read this, far from your mind are  thoughts of hunger and blood and torn and gaping wounds in men who lie on the battlefield.  There is no thought in your mind of the desper-  , ate pleading, the agonized praying, the years of  anguish that have gone past, just so you may  read these words.  Those things and much more have been written into the pages of history, penned-in the blood  of martyrs, heroes and heroines. You read this  editorial because men and women have died before their time, have   volunteered their precious  i     .  Make Hunting Safe  AT LEAST 95 per cent of all hunting accidents  each fall can be avoided if every hunter acquaints himself with the fundamentals of safe  gun handling and constantly practices them.  These fundamentals are simple and serve a dual  purpose: they help keep hunting a safe sport and  .make fqr better, marksmanship..; *,:..>-.,_.,������ X���.,....-.-.,,,...y.^i  There is no excuse for ' carelessness in gun ,  handling, wrhether the weapon is loaded or not.  The cardinal rule of gun safety is "treat every  gun with the respect due a loaded gun." Always  remember���never point a gun at anything you  do not want to shoot. Never leave your gun unattended unless you unload first. Never climb a  tree  or a fence with a loaded gun.  Carry only empty guns���taken down or with  the action open���into your automobile, camp or  home. Whenever you pick up a gun,   indoors or  lives���have given their very souls.  While thinking of these things which are  reasons for their being a free press, you may be  saddened to know that perhaps your son or  daughter may have to' die in the future in order  for more sons and daughters to be able to read  editorials in this same paper, perhaps 20 years  from now. t  If you- or your sons remain free and unfettered they will remain so because first of all your  newspapers  are so.  As long as a free press breathes and lives  there never can be dictatorship. First sign of  rule by force will come when your paper has to  print what it is told. You will know when^ that  happens, because then does life become so cheap.  The Belgians and the Free French, when  forced underground during the last war, printed  a free newspaper. The power of the press is such  that dict?,tors have risen-and fallen by it���kingdoms   have done likewise.  At the first hints of restriction this and  every paper will raise high their voices so that  all may know the forces of evil .are rampant.  Everyone knows that Canada, to be free,  must have a free voice. The "Coast News is the  collective voice of the Sechelt Peninsula. Its  freedom is yours.  When this paper is no longer able to write  its editorials, rightly or wrongly, as it feels, then  are you bound. You are, with the first hint of  restriction, a prisoner with what that entails in  stifling confinement and throttled living.  Freedom of the press is no idle phrase. It is,  to you, and you, and you ��� as important as  breathing.  Millions have, and without God's help, millions more, will die in order that you can enjoy  ���a free press.  Freedom of the press is not ? phrase���it is  a 'heritage. Guard it well.  outdoors, always first point the muzzle in a safe  direction and examine the piece carefully ' to  make sure whether or not it is loaded.  Pointing a loaded gun towards a companion  is the unpardonable sin of shooting ethics. Do it  just once and you have lost the respect and com-  .rafleship'ofryour -friendr and-^brandedsypursehXa  thoughtless novice or a careless, dangerous shooter with whom it is unsafe to go afield.  It is a compliment to be invited to go hunting with an experienced gunner. It means he believes you'will observe all safety rules and practice good sportsmanship. Don't let him down by  taking chances and you'll help make hunting, a  safer spdrt. It's just as easy to be careful as careless.  Let us not have any "hunting accidents" on  the  Sechelt Peninsula this fall.  Let Us Sconce (fotvt  PRIViJOY  Appoint us t.he guardians of that car of yours.  Let us see to  its needs,  through regular checkups on tires, battery, radiator and crankcase.  t We. have a complete carburetor service which is second to none on the  peninsula.

Mr Fred Stoddard and his sister, Mrs Cambie, are visiting  Vancouver while Miss Enid Stoddard is paying a short visit to  Seattle.  Mrs Gus Lund has gone to  Vancouver to spend a few days  with' her f sister Mrs By ers, who  is visiting from Edmonton.  Mr A. E. Bourne underwent  an operation on his eyes which  was a success. Mrs Gary Boyd  was up last week-end visiting  her grandmother, Mrs Allen  Bourne.  Another recent visitor was Mr  W. R.

Take a medium sized vegetable  marrow and cut lengthwise.  Take out soft core and seeds.  Then with some leftover cold  meat or boiled ham and minced  onion, fill the centre, put in the  roasting pan and bake. Add a  sniff of sage as well as the usual  seasoning. Put also in about two  tablespoonfulls of chutney and  bake for about one and one-half  hours depending upon the size of  the marrow.

JOHNSTON  WELL, HERE we are again, and  the first crack out of the box,  let me offer condolences, and  hearty congratulations. First,  even though the now defunct  Peninsula Times died a slow lingering death, she made it. It  did the best it could, or knew  how, but that was not enough.  We on the Peninsula are not  ready for two weeklies, many of  us wish we were strong enough  to support more than one paper,  a little competition, so to speak,  But that mustn't be considered,  at least not yet.  And now, may we offer our  sincere congratulations, and best  wishes, to the Coast News, and  its two co-partner owners, hoping they may stear a clear  course, and ride at anchor in the  port of "Future Success".  I was hoping that by the time  this issue was off the preses, we  could have proudly pointed to  our highway, and said a fond  farewell to the complaint which  has become known as "Dustitis".  However, it won't be long now,  the boys are working on the job.  Particular    interest    is    being  centered   around    the     weaving  classes, held at the home of Mrs  George Wright.   This 'good   lady  is giving of her time and talents,  to  the people   of  Wilson   Creek  and    vicinity,     particularly    the  younger set.   This type of work  or hobby, will become more and  more  popular   as  the  gold weather sets  in.   Mrs Wright's creations on the loom have been the  centre of interest at many sales-  of-work,  in   adjacent  communities, may we   wish   this member  of  our community  the   best    of  luck in  her endeavors.  Mr and Mrs W. (Bill) Richardson of Burnaby, who spent their  holidays at Davis Bay, have returned to their home. Bill is a  veteran of the last war, and was  injured in the Italian campaign.  He says it's the first holiday he's  had in years, and had a grand  time. He looks forward to a return trip. That's the kind of advertising we need. Mrs Bert  Wright, who went to the city for  a few days and stayed for over  two weeks, mentions that her  hubby is getting along as well  as can be expected.  Mrs Critchell has gone to the  city for a few days, and incidentally, we regret to .announce her  son is not feeling at all good  these days and is again confined  to his home. Let's hope to see  him up and around pretty soon.

The Commission has acquired and amalgamated 25 operating electric utility  services, including distribution systems, with immense savings to consumers  resulting. ^  The Commission has invested nearly $40,000,000 in generating plant, transmission and distribution services to supply power to industries and its more  than 41,000 commercial and domestic customers.  The Commission is engaged in the extension of rural electrification, bringing  economical irrigation and the other numerous labour and time-saving advantages of power to the farmer.  The Commission is developing the enormous hydro power potential of the province, with such projects as the  112,000 horsepower John Hart Development, serving Vancouver Island} the Whatshan project which will help  develop the North Okanagan, Kamloops and other communities of the southern-central interior! *ke Clowhom  River hydro development, which will supply Sechelt and adjacent coastal areas.  The Commission continues to survey hydro resources, with a view to taking care of the future needs of the people*  The Commission operates on a financially independent basis, paying all interest on capital, providing from its  revenues for maintenance and renewal reserves, sinking fund and contingencies. Its profits go into the stabilization  reserve fund, for the improvement of service   and  protection of the interests of its customers. j  The Commission's widespread operations, and the  assurance of adequate supplies of power, are directly  responsible for the expansion of industry. Such  projects as the huge pulp industries on Vancouver  Island, at Cedar and Alberni, and, soon to be built,  at Duncan Bay, utilize Commission power from the  John Hart Development.  Power is essential to the fullest development of basic  industries, of mills, mines, factories and farms.

Mental health begins  at   home.  SECHELT  By "ARIES"  WE WISH to welcome to Sechelt  Mr and Mrs R. E. Burks. Mr  Burks is at Lamb Lumber Co  and Mrs Burks will be staying in  Sechelt. When they get acquainted they will like it as one has  to know people to have a good  time here and we recently went  to Gibsons with the Burks and  found out they are lots of fun.  Also back in Sechelt and at  Lambs camp is Mr Louis Hansen.  We were sorry to see Mr and  Mrs, Hansen move away from  here but by all appearances it  won't be long before they will  be back to stay. Let's hope so  anyway.  Leaving Sechelt after a long  vacation with her daughter and  son-in-law Constable and Mrs  Bob Forrester, is Mrs Bevin going home to Kamloops. We hope  she is now in better health as  she has been ill for some time  and also that she comes back to  visit us again soon.   *  Hear that Mr and Mrs Henry  Newcomen are still in the Kootenays.

We believe in being half  fair. Everybody kicks at the  state of the highways here but  if you just pay a little attention  you will see our road builders do  a fair share of work for the not  too much money they get.  We will go out on a limb on  this road business and forecast  that we have a complete, peninsula long highway, comparable  to any in B.C., within two years.  We will get it ahead of many districts with ten times the amount  of taxpayers, with roads in worse  shape than ours.  There you are. Just remember that.  Bill Jackson, the quiet druggist, is doing a bit of bragging  about the fine crop of fruit -he  grows on his ranch, the one just  before you come to the S corner  on the Sechelt highway.  ��� Mrs. Alice Amelia French was  in the other day.

Family Allowance  GIBSONS���All parents of children of school age who are in  receipt of family allowances  were reminded by W. R. Bone,  regional director, that eligibility  for the continuation of these  payments is conditional on satisfactory school attendance. School  attendance is compulsory in  British Columbia between seven  and fifteen years of age.  "Monthly this office encounters cases where children in this  age group have been in ��� unsatisfactory attendance for several  months," Mr. Bone said. "This  results in the parent being asked  to refund allowances paid for the  period concerned. While practically without exception school  authorities notify this department when a child's "attendance  is unsatisfactory, parents should  realize that the responsibility for  such notification is primarily  theirs."  The only exception to the attendance regulation^ is where  satisfactory certificates have  been received explaining the absence as due to sickness, lack of  school accommodation or no  transportation where the distance is   considerable.
