 Provincial i_io;  Victoria, B.   C  Phcne your news or  orders to  Gibsons 45  Sixth Year of Publication     Vol. 6-10 Thursday March 6 1952      Published in GIBSONS, B.C.     Serving the Sunny Sechelt Penninsula  THE CLATTER OF CHIPPING HAMMERS against grey-hulled  ships, as workmen removed year's paint, resounds alone Montreal's waterfront as the harbor awakens from another- winter's  sleep. As the ice-breakers N.B. McLean. Ernest Lapointe and  Saurel are inching their way. up the ice-Jocked St. Lawrence  River, the workmen are turning out to ready the ships in port for  another. ��ainmnr mmsozl  iwnm  Our niads-iipin  More than $30,0(30 was spent last year on double flushing  portions of the SecheltrGibsons highway.  Is that going to be so much water down the drain or is the  road department gdCng to fix the holes now appearing on the  recently laid, costly surface.  Never has the old adage, "a stitch in time saves nine"  stood to greater :effeet (than with regard; $o the many pot holes  now appearing. These holes, if remedied now, will not increase  in size. Bite if left to cut,, bruise and tear automobile tires, they  will increase and will eventually undo all the good done last  year.  We would point out that the holes on the blacktop ���or  double flush'surface are a far greater hazard than like holes in  the dirt road.  The edges are sharper and do greater tire damage but they  can be remedied with a few truckloads of the same double flush  material which may be obtained in Vancouver practically any  week.  The Jccal department of public works should be urged to  patch the holes before they increase in stature and number. Xt9  is not for u.s to tell the department how this remedial work can  be done but merely/ to draw the attention to the urgency of  the matter.  It is well known that our road crew is working under strict  budget from Vancouver but we earnestly hope that enough  coin of the realm can be found to do this urgent job now.  Waiting can only increase the cost and no'fc in true ratio  but in ever widening spirals.  Just as Grandma used to say in her wisdom, "never put  off to the morrow .      "  ����  Keats Ferry to  Be of the Best  GAMBIER HARBOUR, ���  It,, was a proud moment for  Francis Dra'ge, J.P., when B.  M, Maclntyre/' MLA, gave  credit to the Gambier man for  instituting the move?, which  culminated in the announcement on the floor of the House  at Victoria that Gambier  would have a ?ferry service.  It was1 while making his  announcement that Maclntyre  joined    in    mock     handshake  from the floor with Drage,  who was a guest in the Speaker's  Gallery,  Victoria.  Colonel George' Paulin has  assured that both Keats and  Gambier will get the "best  possible boat for the service.  "It is not a. question of any-"  thing would do.  It will  have  to  be  the best   for the  job,"  Cplonel Paulin said.      ,  aSent Night Is  Slated for Aon!  SECHELT. ��� Entry forms  are ready at, local grocery  stores and Lang's Drug Store,  for the Siechelt P-TA Talent  Night. Entry dates are March  1 to April 12.  Entries will be classed under  age groups as follows: 6 and  under; 7 to 10;yll to 14; 15  to 18, and adults. Groups will  be classed under instrumental,  vocal, drainatic or noveity. A  quartette or under will be  classed in age group. These  classics and age groups have  been selected and decided  upon by the judges, selected  from each district/arid will be  in effect at all P-TA talent  nights on the Peninsula.  Every district is represented  on the Peninsula Talent Night  Committee, and judges? have  been selected by each P-TA to  represent their district, but  for judging purposes will not  judge in their own district. A  list of these will be: given out  at a later date, also the points  decided upon for judging. As  these will apply for' all talent  nights on the Peninsula, watch  for them.  Entry forms for the Sechelt  P-TA Talent Night should be  sent direct to Mrs. K. Whitaker, Box 445, Sechelt, P.O.,  or may be left at Lang's Drug  Store, Sechelt.

Ladies of St.  Mary's will hold annual tea  and" sale of . honia cooking,  United Church Hall, 2���5 p.m.  To Get  Water      ?  MADEIRA   PARK.  ���   The  Forestry Department will construct a cement pump house,  with an automatic electric  pump, to provide water for  the school.  This decision was made  following representations 'on  behalf of the School Board by  Francis Drage and B. M. Maclntyre, MLA, presented to the  .forestry during opening week  of the legislative assembly at  Victoria.  The water system in the new  school has always been a bone  of contention and point of  grief to school authorities who  have complained via, School  Inspectors, letters to the related departments and to local  "experts."  The new pump house which  will house the booster pump  at the lake was turned down,  as an idea owing to "excessive  cost and the work entailed in  having^ someone go to the lake  every morning in order to  start the pump operating."  '' Cost of , the .new system  will be borne entirely by the  Forestry Department," Captain Drage said.  "The pump will be of the  remote , control type, wh\ch  can be stareed from the school,  or nearby residence.  "Much credit is due the  forestry department," a school  spokesman said. "They have  always been obliging and willing to cooperate. This latest  move will mean quite a saving  to the school board as well'as  beinsr the answer to a! long  standing prohlem.''  roves success  *e than one hundred seventy adult  "pupils" attended  classes in the Elphinstone Junior-Senior High School when the  staff sponsored a Sample School Day, Wednesday.  Students ranged in age from  three and one half month old  Jimmy Westell to Octogenarian  G. G. Armour.  Fifty-four school periods  were arranged during the  evening session when mothers  and fathers, as well as interested taxpayers were put  through high school curriculum.  Courses ranged from bookkeeping to psysieal education  via music, home economics,  typing, effective living, industrial arts, social studies and  geography.  The adult pupils were met  at the door by an arts display  of posters drawn by school  pupils and stressing education  week. Among artists are Art  Thomson, Carmen Robinson,  William Selby and Ed Week.  One of the slogans was  "Education is Everybody's  Business."   The   eight   periods  of schooling which followed  stressed this theme as well as  enlightening parents on what  children were learning and  why.  Stately ladle's and? bald  headed men, heard once again  why the tides- acted as they  did. School Teacher Alex  Goosetrey explained the trade  winds and the reasons for  monsoons and why we have  torrid and glacial areas on the*  earth.  The inimitable Mrs. C. Day  spurred her classes through  typing lessons and explained,  in another class, the background of what we know as  .art and the aims of art classes  in producing "not artists but  studenfe with a ��� working:  knowledge     of    the     subject  (Continued on page 8}  (See Back to School)  New Folder Depicts  Peninsula Beauties  Explore the Sunshine Coa'st is the way in which a new two'  color, red and blue, folder invites the tourist to read further.  Put out by  the. Black  Ball  .Eerr-teJs and- sponsored: by lender Harbour, Sechelt and Gibsons Board of Trade the.folder  carries an even dozen pictures  by Photographer Gordon  Ballantine, which were taken  during the well known camera  man's sojourn on the Peninsula.  ' The opening pfcture depicts  a scene from Hopkins, looking  over the edge of Gambier  Island to the Britannia Range  of mountains.  Wording on the front page  tells that the Sechelt Peninsula is British Columbia's  playground.  Somle of the pictures portray - the scenery between  Horseshoe Bay and Pender  Harbour. They include inlet  and water shore views as well  as the picture of a fisherman  fishing from the edge of the  road into one of the water  bodies' near'Halfmoon Bay.  Porpoise Bay is seen on the  pages, as ate the famous Indi  an; ^hurch^at^^Se^elt/ inlets:  along the coast-and . several  Indian  basket  makers.  The folder carries* a( map of  the route from Vancouver:- to  Powell River as well as- a>  schedule for the Quillayute.  and  a fare table.  One of the pages takes on  the job of advising the tourist  about the best method of  travelling from Seattle to  Victoria,, and urges all and  sundry to visit the. new erea.  The whole job is centred  with a view looking across the-  "world famous Howe Sound  to the towering peaks of the  Britannia   Ran ere."'  This two-fold spread? is becoming famous having been -  used before in folders and' the  back of match cartons as well  a? being one of Mr. Ballentine's best selling pictures.  A "slick" job, the folder  will be distributed by the  thousands throughout the  western  and  southern states.  Maclntyre Scores Lack  Of Police Protection  B. M. Maclntyre, MLA, had a. i*ew word-? to say about  insufficient police protection in his riding when he spoke in the*  Legislature last Thursday.    He took  thin  cover  exception  provided  to  bv  the  the  R.C.M.P. since, they took over  and pointed to various weak-  spots in his ridinsr, including  the Sechelt Peninsula with  only two officers to control an  area many miles lon<y and in-  eluding several  islands.  "Keats. Gambler. Port Mellon, Gibsons, Siechelt and Pender Harbour, with their fishing  and lodging /-centres, their  more than .10.000 population  ha've only two resident policemen," he said.  He    told    the    .?������"> ver nm en t  sums in in any of the tax fields'  and receive no visible returns  from anv. including the S.S.  and  M.A."  Gibsons, with a total of 70ft  population, i> annually in receipt of many thousands of  dollars from the S.S. and M.A..  tax.

Maclntyre,  ?MLA; in the legislative assembly was a good one.  The whole speech was of high calibre as can be attested by  loud, vocal approval  given by The Premier,  Mr. H. Anscomb  .and. the leader of the CCF Mr. H. Winch.  Seldom can one member wring praise from all three sides,  r simultaneously. To do so ista trick of vocal legerdemain and a  . tribute to the speaker's own standing.  We feel Mr. Maelnyre has laid down the law as far as  MacKenzie Riding road appropriations are concerned. It has  :been suggested he has done a lot more than just ask for the  increase of more than $300,000. The Sechelt Peninsula is pre-  :pared to stand behind their member in whatever he has done  to force money from the closely guarded purses of the department of public works.  We must have roads. We must have them at the earliest  ���possible "moment,  : Mr. "Maclntyre, it is hinted, has used a! pry with the govern-  *ment to ensure the money. We sincerely hope the instrument is  of tempered steel a>nd as solid as is the character of Mr. Maclntyre.  MacKenzie Riding can well be proud of the MLA who  ��� serves them. The best time to show real aippreciation is at the  polls.  The ship cones ia  The "amazing" progress of the car ferry is something that  should make the Sechelt Peninsula stop and think.  Black Ball, unofficially, expected to operate very close to  the border, if not actually in the red, for nearly five years-  From Victoria comes the story the company has paid Its  wayN during the first five, toughest months of its operation..  For Black Ball we are glad. We hope they continue tO'  prosper and make money.  For the Sechelt Peninsula we are afraid.  What are we going to do with the expected rush of people,  ���and cars? What organizations are spearheading the new approach to tourist traffic ?  This year should see' the death of one era and the start of  another.  There ,are people who have been names  on the Peninsula '  who will be left to the side as the spate of progress increases.  Such lias always been the way.  "���'"' ?C:Men and women who were staunch promoters of the area  will have to change their attack. A new way of life is dawning.  Instead of   pleading   for  one   thing,  as in the palsst,   the  various groups will have to demand two or three things for the-  future. Hundreds of thousands of dollars will pass through this  jarea during 1952. It is up to us to see that some of that life  ���"-giving blood remains here. ��� .  Cliff Gray has an idea for a three day salmon derby which  will award the first prize to someone other than the- holder os&  the largest fish. This is a step in the right direction.  fSe.ehelt is branching out. It is even now wracked with  .^growing pains. A real, live wire Board of Trade can give  .-guidance.  7Pencier Harbour is having the same trouble. Real estate  offices are being approached for properties which can be used  for drive ins, motels and tourist camps.  Thousands of leaflets are being distributed throughout the  southern and western United States. Surely all this boiling must  foretell action.  'It as time the Peninsula took cognizance of these straws in  -the wind and got down to some real live action in preparation  ifor tfhe coming tourist.  To'the gambler, in this instance, will go the well deserved  spoils.  It will be sad indeed if, ten ye'ars from now, we see the  area covered with "Johny Come Latelies," all making money  .and the real Peninsulaittie sitting back and telling the world he  arrived with the original freight twenty years ago, but failed  to bring any foresight or imagination with him.  The future we are waiting for, the ship that is due to  arrive are all here now. We have to prepare for them or go  down under the flood. '  The choice is for each of us to make and the time is now.  Tomorrow is too late.  Reader's Right  Editor, The News.  Sir: ��� *  Ex Animo's opinion is hardly the opinion of the general  public or my faith in human  nature is sadly shaken.  Having had a good deal to  do with our high -sehool students. I'd venture to say they  are as fine a lot of young  people a's are to be found anywhere in Canada. There are  no more ill-mannered seal a.-'  wags than in our adult population.  Where is your fair play  when you tar them all with  the same brush? It is' as  reasonable to say we aire all  criminals because of one; man.  They are not perfect, but who  expects perfection from that  age-group? Let us give them  a  chance.  The inconveniences of the  past will no doubt help them  to appreciate their new school.  Anyway, let us give them the  benefit of the doubt and every  opportunity to prove what fine  young people they really are.  ��� Mrs. J. Carroll  Browsing  Editor. The News.  Sir: ���    ��� .  Further to a! story you ran  re the word reforestation and  there being no such word in  the dictionary, I would suggest that reforestation is probably an abbreviation, in common  use,  of  re   afforestaition.  Both this word and the word  afforestation you will find in  the  dictionary.  ��� E.G.  Nature ���  The Provider  Mice are know as the 'Bread  <of -the forests,' and are sought  "by every  form  of flesh  eater  in the forest. Because  of this  fact nature comes to the rescue  of the little monse to keep his  Trnle from becoming extinct as  -well   as   assuring   the   flesh-  eaters  of  ready   dinner.   The  number of mice   produced   to  iireelet the .demand is truly phe-  lraminal. Mice produce youngsters every 21 dajrs and have  .a Ibrood ranging  from  six to  eight  each. time.

The Wrong Word  A young professor and his  wife were meticulous about  the language they used in their  children's hearing.

We were adopted  for the evening by a very nice  little girl with name, of Barbara Emerson. She was veiw  attentive and looked after us  well. The tables were beautifully decorated and the food  very tastefully served by the  Girl Guides. Address to the  mothers by Joan Chambers,  and address to our friends by  Mardi Power.  The president, Mrs. Lillian  Powell ca'lled on the gathering  for two minutes silence hv  honor of the. passing of our  beloved King, and pledged  loyalty to Queen  Elizabeth.  Mrs. A. E. Ritchey of Gibsons spoke briefly otn the work  and Mrs. Pearl Osborne and  Mrs. Grace Cook also addressed the gathering. A humorous  dialogue by Diana McColl  entitled "At the movies," was  much enjoyed. A skit by Sundi  Stroshein "The- ��� rummage  Sale, "was  also very funny.

Many. nice homes and  gardens- are on this road and  its bad enough to have fences  knocked down and gates  blocked ��� without having to  spend hours picking dp.broken  glass and bottles on a Sunday  morning.  When the Legion had the  services of a janitor he evidently kept this annoyance  down to a minimum.

The results of  five oat variety tests scattered  throughout the Lower Fraser  Valley area in 1951 show that  Eagle with an average yield of  126 bushels per- acre significantly outyielded such varitie.s  as Victory, and Ajax which  averaged 115 and 106 bushels  per acre respectively. Eagle  has now been tested for a 15-  year period, and over these  years it has been more resistant  to lodging than any other suitable variety tested.  Victory, long a favorite with  farmers, has a more attractive  kernel than Eagle, but at the  same time, it is lower in quality  with,a higher percentage of  hull. At Agassiz, Ajax has  matured' on the average eight  days earlier than Eagle and so  it is often grown by farmers  who desire an earlier maturing  oat variety.  Tests with barley do not  indicate any need for change  in the present recommended  varieties which are: Vaiiage,  Trebi and Olli. For most conditions, Vantage with its high  yield, smooth awns and outstanding strength of straw, is  the logical choice. Trebi is also  high yielding, but is rough  awned and less lodging resistant. Olli is. an excellent choice  where an early variety is  desired.

Bank  of   Montreal   ���   Pfoone   Gibsons   77 More than a. quarter of a million Canadians have received  free blood or plasma transfusions through the Canadian Red  Cross free national Blood Transfusion Service, Vernon C. Hale,  aiational chairman of the Blood Donor Committee, announced,  tfoday on the- eve of the Society's annual national appeal for  $5,222,000.  "In   cold  dollars   and   cents        our service has saved , Canadians, in the former cost of  medical care alone, a sum far  greater than the total amount  we arc campaigning' fDr to  cover all Red Cross services  this year," the chairman declared. "But. it is in the contribution to suffering humanity and in the saving of human  lives that our real progress  can be measured."  A total of 282,136 patients  in Canada have received free  transfusions since the start of  the service in 1947, and a total  of 648,790 bottles have been  donated by the public in the  same  period.  In 1951, when the service  had grown to include eight  provinces, although only portions of Ontario and Quebec,  210,136       pa-tiehts      received  transfusions and 263;000 bottles of blood were collected.  With the opening of a depot  in Saskatchewan this year, the  service will operate in all  provinces, except Newfoundland.  In addition to ,the civilian  service, the government has  made Red Cross the sole  agency for the procurement of  blood and blood products, including jilasma, for the fighting men of Canada at home  and abroad. More than 6,000  bottles of plasma have alre'ady  been delivered to the Department of National Defence  under this agreement.  Sechelt ��� Peninsula Headquarters is the Bank of Montreal, Gibsons.

PURCHASING   COMMISSION  PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS  VICTORIA,   B.C.  March 3, 1952.  The Coast News 4  Thursday  March  6  1952  Local Contractors  To Get Preference  Every consideration will be  given local contractors during  heavy - construction of our  roads.  This was the promise made  by the. Department, of Public  Works in answer to an objection from the Board of Trade  that "local contractors were  being denied local work."  Replacement of Mission  Bridge on the Seehelt-Gibson  highway was done by a company brought in to do the  work. This had raised the ire  of certain groups, including  vhe trade board.  The department's answer  will be placed on file "but  will be remembered when next  there is work to be done."  The department pointed out  when the contract was awarded that the "local contractor's  equipment wa's too small."  It recognized validity of the '  objection     and     will     make  am'ends in the future.

Mrs.   Anne  Burns  "     Secretary -Treasurer  School District No. 46 (Seckelt);  Gibsons, B.C.  This and That  BY MRS NESTMAN  Correction! Last week I said  Phyllis, Mrs. Lowden's daughter, had a son, it should have  been "Bubsie." So sorry,  Phyl.  Mr. and Mrs. P. Leach are.  away to Sandiago for a vacation. Mr. and Mrs. J. Aehworth  are getting ready for a trip  to the Old Country some time  in April.  Mrs. R. Macnicol went to  town for a christening of one  of the grandchildren. Then  away to Victoria to help the;  celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Pro Patria  Branch of Cana'dian Legion,  "Womens Auxiliary. She was  one- of the originals of this  group.        ^  Glad to report our Joe Fit-.  chett is home and doing very  well. Mr. and Mrs. Tom Howe  and daughter Sharon are away  to Kamloops, where we all  hope.'Pat will be her old self  again.  Glad    to    see    the    Misses  Doherty's home again. Missed  seeing them go by-in their car.  J. Marshall, Sr., home again  but nursing some badly burned spots from a little backfire  of  that  spring yard  clean-up.  Granny"McEwen will celebrate her 88th birthday March  13,  and  she. ha's  asked me  to  tell  all  her  friends   that  she  will be holding open house on  that day. Granny is still active  but forced every once in while  to   slow   down.   We   certainly  wish her all  the best  for the  coming year, and may she have  many, many more.  Seems like another checker  move on again down in our  little village. Mr. and Mrs.  Claude Anctil have moved to  Vancouver; Mr. and Mrs.  Orval Burnett moving into  their house; Mi*- and Mrs.  Mark Anctil will be moving  into the' Milt Brown; home,  when they go down to Hopkins about the end of March.  Mr. Wilson, they tell me, is  going into the '.suit- vacated by  the Howe's: Moving's so fast  down there I can't keep track  of them all.  The little off ice* going up on  the main street will be occupied by Mr. Wilson as an  Estate office���due to so many  queries, I thought I would let  the folks know?  The tell me Murdo Stewart'  got himself quite a little ducking over near the Islands, and  it might have been real serious if one of our Kea't's neighbors had not been there to  help him out and get him  home. Bet the water was cold  Murdo.  Mr.   D.   Cochrane   still  confined   to   his home.   Hope  he  . will   soon  be  up   and  around  again.  Brought Roma home Sunday  but. had to le'ave the baby  there'for a week or so. Small  one is really a small one, and  not in any huruy to leave the  hospital. Doctor says she will  be ok in a few days and then  we 'can have her home with  us.  Gave a little too large a  bouquet to Kinsmens' wives a  week or so ago and was gently  corrected, they did not wish  to take all credit. It seems the  DUO Club is very active in  the supplying of much needed  baby clothes, and certain  articles, to the Nurse when  needed. They have also helped  with exnenses of dental work  for certain small children and  many other, things almost too  numerous ��� tq. mention. They  are a very active group of  ladies, from Granthams and  Gibson?, and so I would like  to specially mention they are  doing a very good job, and a  great orchid to them.

The News,  Sir: ���  Considering the large number of older Veterans residing  (I almost said "living'.') in  ,the area your, circulation covers, the executive of Branch  109 Canadiali Legion, felt you  would be doing these Veterans  a. real service by publicising  Order in Council P.C. 6961  which shows the changes in  treatment regulations, as applied to those Veterans over  70 years of age, who are receiving Old Age Security  ���Pensions payments of $40 per  month.  The New. Class 5b is as follows:  (b)   A  veteran,   within  the  meaning of the War Veterans'  Allowance Act,  1946,  who,  in  the   opinion   of   Departmental  medical     authority,     requires  ���   active    treatment   for   a   disabling  condition  not  attributable    to    service    and    whose  . service,   income   and   financial  assets, and physical or mental  condition are  such that  he  is  entitled  to   receive War Veterans'  Allowance;   or  who,' if  .  in receipt of old age security  pension, would be  eligible to  receive War Veterans' Allowance if the Old Age Security  Pension were   deducted   from  his Income, treatment shall be  furnished in Ca'nada only and,  except for TB and mental disease which will ordinarily be  treated   in   non-Departmental  Hospitals,    in   a. Hospital   or  clinic   (including  Departmental pavilions  or wings of non-  Departmental Hospitals)  operated by the Department under  the  supervision  of  a  salaried  officer of the Department.  In plain language, any married vet having up to and including 50 per cent pension,  or a singlie vet having up to,  and including 40 per cent pension even if receiving Old Age  Security  Pension* in  addition,  Gower Gl  BY GYPSY  eanings  TOWERS  Phone  Gibsons 39  ��� Got the scourge of the Bay  ��� a- -rasping, barking sore  throat, so have maide no personal contacts this week.

No- skin grafting  necessary, thanks to prompt  action of our new limb of the  law who witnessed the unfortunate occuranee and did  some quick thinking in smothering the blaze.  Apropos  to  nothing in particular, I would state we have  quite   a  .job. advising  bewildered   motorists, that    get   out  'xh'ere,  this is not  the road to  P)e<nder    Harbour     and    way  points,   and    that    they  must  turn back and sro up the Pratt  Road   to    reaeh    the    Sechelt  Highway.  A long tough drive  on a  dead end road ��� a few  more  conspicuous signs would  be   heir)ful   to   Grangers   who  visit these  parts for the first  time.    It   would    be   a   lovely  drive around   the   waterfront,  but   the   nresent- state   of "the  road   makes    it    no    pleasure  "'nunt.   as  we   hear,   when   in-  fo'rmincr the lost motorist that  ���he  must  retrace his steps for  two or three miles!  is   eligible   for   treatment   at  Shaughnessy.  At present there ha,s been  no charge in 5a regulations  which -rules that a married  vet with no service disability,  or WVA standing, but has a'n  income of less than $1,600 a  year, or a single vet with an  income of less :,than $1,200 a  year is also eligible for treatment in Shaughnessy if he is  without adequate resources to  obtain treatment elsewhere.  Biecause they do not fully  understand the position, many  vets are loth to take the Old'  Age Security Pension, when  really it would be beneficial  for them to do "so. To cite a  specific instance: A married  vet on 50 per cent disability  pension receives $85 per month  ��� if hfe and his wife are over  70 years of age their income  would be lifted to $165 per  month, and as he would be  eligible 'to receive $6.66 per  month from WVA j if he were  not gietting the OASP, he still  can get treatment from  Shaughnesssy. At the other  end of the scale; supposing a  couple ov/er 70 have been trying to.live on $70.83 per month,  the most a straight WVA  married couple can receive.  Should they dleeide to obtain  the OASP, in addition to the  $80 they would receive, they  would also be a'ble to giet  $11.66 from WVA, and so  raise their income to the limit  allowed WVA recipients, i.e.  $9X66 per month, and the vet  would ' still be eligible for  treatment at Shaughnessy.  Believing this information  should have the greatest possible publicity, may we. halve  your cooperation,  please ?  Yours truly,  Howe   Sound   and   District  Branch 109, Canadian Legion.  E.  G.

High School  The senior boys team played  a local men's team in basketball in the new gym on February 29. The! score was 30-  26 in favor of the boys.  The senior girls team played  against the junior boys team  on the same evening, with a  score of 24-19 for the? junior  boys.

BACK TO SCHOOL  (Continued from page  1)  which in turn teaches them to  appreciate beauty in its many  forms.''  Mrs: Pearson received many  verbal bouquets for her handling of the involved science  class1. She ran the gamut from  explaining the manufacture of  bakelite to calory contents in"  va'rious foods.  Among   her   interested  students'  were   Dr  Hugh  Inglis,  Banker   Tom   Larson,   Logger  L.   S.   Jackson,    Artist    Ted  Poole and Salesman H. Wilson.  The  English   class   leiarned  something   about  the   English  language  in  what  must  have  been, to most of them,  a  revolutionary  fashion;  listening  to Laurence Olivier giving the  famous  and   moving  "   on  to  the   break"   speech   in   King  Henry V, via  electric grama-  phone.  Mrs. John Bunyan, Harry  Smith, Mike Laundry and  Mrs. Pearl Osborne were part  of the interested class.  Mrs. L. S. Jackson, a member of the school board helped  reverse the situation when she  listened to School Teacher  Mrs. B. Rankin propound the  lessons other than addition  that can be found in books of  mathematics. '  Mrs. Glassf ord was the quick  students were tradesmen with  many years background in the  art of" building.  Despite the -shortage of several stoves, the home economies cla's.s, conducted by Mrs.  Lattimer, was proclaimed by  ladies who attended as being  one of the most interesting.  Two students, Sharon Parn-  well and Roberta Nimmo, demonstrated during the teachers lecture on sewing machines.  School Principal S. True-  man took several classes as  well as handling the operation  and control of periods. He was  emphatic in his praise for the  janitors, Fred AVestell and  George   Cresswell,  "who   had  done   so  much  work  beyond  the   call of duty in  order to  assure    the    success    of    the'  gathering."  Among pupils who handled  the registration and guiding  of the students of the day,  were Betty Gray, Maureen  Ross1, Lyla Farnham, Jeaai  Blumgren and Mel Hough.
