Trueman wajs named to  handle   the;   nominating  com-  ���^mittjefe business. Drs H. Inglis  and T. R. McColl are members  of the group's medical advisory board.  Reports read during the  meeting showed that, although  much hard work had befen accomplished^ the group had just  managed to  keep  out of  the  ���red. Costs per visits are steadily mounting, according to the  report, and the charge is now  $1.25 a. visit. It was felt that  some revision would undoubtedly be necessary in the near  future to enable the board tfj  carry on; Z ;  With a budget se;t; of over  $4,<?00. for thecomiiig year, at  least $3;40(f7 will  have vto  be  Community Hal! Open  At Wilson Creek  At. about the time; this announcement is going to press,  the' ladies of the auxilary to  the new community hall will  have held their first meeting  in the new hall, the pivot  which every organization  swings around. The auxiliary  has worked very hard indeed,  and without the contribution  and material assistance given  by this group, the goal would  not' yet be in sight.  Many of the members of the  WCCC from the men's branch  also  ga,ve valuable assistance.  They it was who built the  hall during the dreary months  of the past winter.  Of special mention must be  tht��' names of Messrs Murray,  McCullough', Cole, Yewdall,  Brookmaii, Bowling, Whittaker, all under the watchful  eye??; of  the ���un  ' The announcement of the  death in Vancouver on March  13 of Beatrice He?lene, widow  of the late. Dr Robert ; Mackenzie, must have been sad  news indeed for many Peninsula residents. During the time,  about ten years, oi their residence at Granthams Landing  the Mackenzie's, whose charm-  . ing personalities Z invited  friendship, made a great number of friends in all parts of  the Peninsula and, to the more  intimiate of these, were known  as '' Docky " and ' 'Trix.''  Mrs. Mackenzie was a member of St. Bartholomew's  Church and a willing and unwearying church, worker. She  also participated? ; freely in  entertainments and? in gatherings where fun-making was  the rule, for by temperament  she was merry and:fun-loving.  After the death of her husband in 1944, Mrs..;Mackenzie  returned to- -her profession of  nursing, first at Shaughnessy  Military, later at St. Paul's in  Vancouver, then at St. Mary's  Hospital at Pender Harbour,  and lastly, during ties last few  months of her very'useful life,  at Shriner's Hospital for Children in Winnipeg.  ���  Her  driving  force through  life seems to have been a keen  sense  of  duty, both  religious  and professional, aim with all  *���; she; was 'a; "merr^s^l^^ ' ?

CREDIT  FORMED  through most unfortunate, cir  cumstaiices, is- quite unable to  lend   further   physical  assistance, but his  intense  interest  has   not abated.  The building which is about  20x40, is aproximately a block  and a half "from the waterfront. Improvementis' will be  made when the finances permit, because of one stringent  rule which reads; This organization shall not contract for  Thei Peninsula! Credit Group,  formed abouTa month ago, is    an7 work unless cash 1S aval1"  holding a second meeting this    able for payment of such  evening in .the Legion . Hall,  Sechelt. Purpose: of the group  is ,.to work out a system of  credit ratings for the entire  Pen insula., according to Mrs.  C.-Nelson, who is secretary-  treiasiirer of the new group.  "The group will take in the  entire area from Pender Harbour to Gibsons ��� and beyond," Mrs. Nelson told the  Coast News, "and. we are  counting on the support of all  the merchants."  ��� ��� Charlie Lunn is president of  the group. .  And so it is hoped that in  the very near future a grand  opening night will be arranged  so that the public of the adja-  ievnt communities, may be able  to isee the final outcome, of  the endeavors of the Wilson  Creek Centre after two years  work.  Smoky Stover Dance  Was  Huge  Success  Gibsons;Volunteer- Eire Brigade dance held la.s-t Saturday  was their biggest and most  successful yet. General consensus of- opinion was that the  hall was as crowded a's a New  Year's dance, and the gathering as hilarious.. To add to the  merriment, the Smoky<> Stovers  put on a short brief floor  show, with burlesque chorus  line;. iPi'flliminary estimates  show that 350 ���nervous crowded  into the School Hall to enjoy  the music, the dancing, and  tlie fun.  MS SEYMOUR NARROWS  RESCUES PENDER  FAMILY  Five" persons narrowly escaped- death in Malaspinai Straits,  near Powell River, at 9 p.m.  Friday in a marine hit and  run  accident.  Two motorboats, lashed together and going from Pender  Harbour to Blind Bay, were  hit by an unindentified southbound Jug that failed to stop.  The motor boat occupants,  Mr. and Mrs. Reinhold Pock-  Tant and thefir two small children and Scotty Dewar. all of  Pender Harbour, were rescued  half an hour after the accident  by the MS .Seymour Narrows,  a coast-wise ship well known  in .Peninsula ports.  Captain C. C. Wilson of the  Seymour said he saw lights  flashing    distress    signals    in  Kinsmen Request  The Xray Unit  Had your bellows checked  recently? The Kinsmen Club of  Gibsons has written the health  officials requesting that the  TB chest x-ray mobile unit be  sent this way again for free  x-ray service throughout the  Peninsula.  The unit is a large van fully  equipped with x-ray facilities  to give free cheeks on lung  * conditions. The van was made  possible through the purchase  of Christmas seals and since  its purchase has been kept on  the move throughout the  length and. breadth of the  province.  Kinsmen : decided to request the unit on behalf of the  residents of. Gibsons following  a visit last week by ��� Fred  Arnett and Harold Huggins,  TB society iofficials.. They were  in the Village to show movie  films at the recent regular  meeting of the Kin club'.'  According to Kinsmen President, Tom Lanson, the x-ray  ' will not be compulsory, but it  is hoped that as many residents of the area as ������ possible  will avail themselves of the  opportunity to check their  lungs for signs of the dread  killer. It takes only a minute  for a check ��� and may save  months of illness.  Malaspina Straits at 9.30 p.m.  Pulling alongside,  he--found  the boat occupied by the Pock-  rant's badly lioleef and. sinking. Dewar'sboat was slightly  damaged.  ���  Seymour; Narrows;, took the  badly wrecked boat in tow, and  ina^iaged to beach it ? at Fro-  lande'r Bay, south of ?Powell  River.  Gus Sivertz, from the provincial desk of the Vancouver  Sun, spoke briefly, but pointedly, to fifty board of trade members and wives Monday evening in the Mariner Cafe' at Gibsons..  He  said that  in most eases  the pio'neers had not planned  for the future and most towns  in this; province were poorly  laid out. He suggested that the  Gibsons and District Board of:  Trade set up a town planning  committee with raised sights  for a motor age and a jet age.  "We have been following  cow paths when building omnia in roads', and in. so doing'  we have wjasted millions of  dollars," he remarked.  Mr. Sivertz pointed out that  the beauty of Gibsons was  unmarred by industry and he  suggested tjhat we think twice  before bringing industrial  plants into the district. Our  heritage of snow-capped  mountains, somnolent isles, and  winding bays is of infinitely  more value than industry, he  said.  He made the observation  that one of the most important  projects for the future should  be the building of a happy  village where visitors will feel  at home, where children will  have playground and park  facilities, and where, because  of the friendliness of the people, visitors will, want to return.  Foild?Wiiig- ihe talk, Dr D7 T.  R. McColl of Sechelt showed  8 mm. color movies that he  and Tom Larson had taken on  and around the Sechelt Peninsula. Of special interest were-  the shots of Ferry Day where  some of the members of the  Boa'rd saw themselves "in the  movies."  As the Monday evening  meeting Avas  a  special  affair,  very little business was introduced. Following the reading"  of the minutes by Secretary  Jim Drummond, committee  chairmen reported briefly on  progress being made.  Pender Legion  Ladies Elect  Mrs. Mollv Joss has been  named president of the Ladies  Auxiliary to Post 112,* Canadian Legion, Pender Harbour.  Mrs. Cedric Reid-was elected  first vice-president, and Mr*.  Alice Brown second vice-president. Re-elected to the post of  secretary was Mrs. Caryl Cameron. New treasurer is Mrs.  B'essie Hambly, and Mrs. M.  (Scotty) Cameron was named  sergeant, at arms. The election  was held in the Hut at last  week's meeting.  Committee members named  were: Ways and Means, Mrs.  Wilson chairman, Mrs. Thelma  Bell, and Mrs. B. Hambly;  Social Convenor, Mrs. J. Connell; Press correspondent, Mrs.  Alice ?Brown.;     ��� ;;_^.,-..,^.-.i.���*,.-.._  Welbomed at meeting was  Mrs. Trytliall, who will be installed as a; member at the  next meetijig. Plans now beingv  considered fare a sale of work  to members at the next meeting, a concert and dance early  in May, and a sale of stationery and cards.  The sum of $45 wa's voted  to pay i!be cost of wiring the-  hall.  Choraliers  Delight  Sechelt  Audience  Last week, at the Canadian Legion hail in Sechelt, the  Legion presented the "Peninsula Choraliers" in a choral concert, interspersed with vocal and instrumental solos. The  audience was the largest ever to gather in this building. Many  stood throughout the whole program. Bach number presented  was received with mixed feeling of surprise and pleasure.  The choir, under the direction of Harold Roberts, gave  a very creditable performance  throughout the evening. From  the entry of that stirring  martial tune. Men of Harlech,  to the. finale, Bird Sonars at  Eventide; and Finlandia, w?Mi  songs, from the y>en of the  world's most famous writers.  including Shakespeare's "Sylvia1," set to music by Schubert,  then Coates. Nevin, Carl Bolm.  with Handel-Spross "W!^''--  E'er You. Walk," and s-?v��i^l  choruses in the lighter vei".  This first concert of tVr>  season shows the choir t'i V.  very much improved o^ov ^n  last season. Tonal qualities,  enunciation and timing, .wpv>  the! outstanding feature of  this well-trained  agoTeirati'^i.  The soloists were Mrs. IT'lri-  Lee, who is well, known tp f1.1  the local music'lovers. Mrs. F  Martin, who is- not so w-11  known in this district but v:h"  was received with much w"1'  deserved armlanse. p^rl ���"^-������^  Forst rf Wilson  Creek, who';*  violin  solo 5  were   one   of   the-  outstanding    features   of    this  very   enjoyable   evening.   This  youngster was accompanied at  the piano by her teacher, Miss  Marsraret Melntyre of Robesfe  Creek.   The   highlight  of   the  ���evenino"   was  the   presentation  of a lovely bouquet of flower/?  to the  official Choraliers'  accompanist, Mrs. Ted Norburn-  ��� This lady of. many letters gave  a   brilliant     n e r f o r m a n c e  throughout the- whole evening.  The  histrionic  ability   of Mrs.  Norburn   is  very   Avell   known  to many people on the Peninsula as well as to hundreds of  -music lovers on the mainland..  The    Choraliers    will    give-  their   second  concert  at  Roberts   Creek   on   Friday,   April  4,  under   the   banner  of   the.  Ladies Auxiliary to the VON.

C^di  ���t  lionatd  The Elusive, Nebulous " They''  A conversation overheard the other day wais most uneniight-  ening. It concerned the; oft-talked-of, nebulous, and unpopular  "They."'The conversation, as we recall it, went something like  this.- ";_���;���  ���"Sure tjhey wiant war. They are gearing our economy to  ^ar."  "Yeah, they want to kill off the unemployed that way.  They're scarfed of the; unemployed."  "Tlhey want to see la: surplus of employables so that they  .can cut down on wages."  "Yeah. They want breadlines again."  "They are taxing us to death."  "Then they pay to import DP's to take jobs away from us."  'These elusive, unpopular "They," we found out later, re-  Jferred to the government.  So, that's what they want!  We (always thought that the members of parliament were  responsible to us, answerable to you and me for their'decisions.  In other words, it is you and I who are the government of  ^Canada. Not only are our parliamentarians responsible to us,  but. we; in turn are responsible to them ��� to see that they do  ^hieir job the wlajy we want it done.  Anyone who refers to government ��� whethfer federal, provincial, or villageZ^-a�� "They" is shirking his responsibility,  denying his citizenship, and can be blatoed for some of the  apathy that exists .today with regaaid to#hei gigantic job of Running a nation, or a pro vincifc, or ot *       v  Read  flight  eaaer s  Editor, The News,  ^Sir: ���  In a> news item published in  (,Co!ast News of March 13 issue  :a paragraph reads: "Commis-  'sioner William Skellett, one" of  Ihe prime movers of the bylaw, is in favor of transite  system while cautious R.

In regards to making a: decision on the type of pipe to  l-he-rased in our new waterworks  'installation, I shall miake  my  views known when the waterworks committee reports. This  report will be made by that  committee, which is composed  of Commissioners W. Skellett  and A. E. Ritchey, at a meeting of the Village Commission,  in committee on March 18.  That is the usual and proper  method of conducting village  affairs.  Yours truly,  Robert Macnicol,  Village Commissioner.  , Editor's Note: The last copy  of the Coast; News was  published hurriedly and some  lines in the water-system story  became misplaced. The paragraph in question should have  read: "Commissioner William  Skellett, one of the prime movers of the bylaw, is in favor  of the transite system while  cautious R. Macnicol would  like to know where the money  for a complete transite system  is coming from."  s Rpes Is Jet  Coast News Editor  Les Rimes is now the man  behind ?the editor's des,k,  stairting with- this issue of the  Coast* News. He has taken over  from Bill Sutherland who was  editor of this paper for the  ��� past three j^ears.  Les started his journalistic  career ���- if "career" it can.  be called ��� at the age of 17  when he wrote stories for a:-  British magazine. And, incidentally, they were stories  lauding the beauty of Howe  Sound and the Gulf Coast. He  has worked on several magazines, has had stories p.ublislhed  in magazines in several countries of the world, and has  assisted with the publication  of many weekly newspapers in  the- province.  Although Les is a newcomer  to our district, he is not entirely unknown, around these  parts. Doing a series of magazine section'articles on. B.C.  towns and villages for one of  the ' Vancouver dailies, he included in7 his itinerary, ait the  time, both Gibsons and Sechelt.  It was at that time, as a matter  of fact, tlia he saw the potential of the area, and has been  keenly interested in our growth  ever since.

The latest issue  of the book has now come off  t,he press, reports; Tom Larson,  manager o.f the B of M at.  Gibsons.  "The B of M Farm Account  Book," he''.?ays, "helps a-farmer keep an exact check on the  produce of each part of his  farm, and the v'alue of that  produce. It includes a permanent record of varieties, crop  yields land soil treatments, and  also enables a farmer to main- '  tain an up-to-date inventory  of his livestock and of his  machinery and implements. It  helps him check the developement of his farm over the year,  and thus decide where his  profits are; coming from and  where he may need to alter  his'plans for  the future."  It certainly pays: to ' know  what part ofyany Operation is  making money,' and what part  isn't. Any farmer who would  like? a copy, of this useful  Account Book is invited to  apply, for it at the Bank of  Montreal !at Gibsons. Either  call in when you're next in  town, or drop a line to Mr.  Larson. ��� Advt.  local Public I^alth nurse gave  the senior girls information, on  the wide field of nursing.

Following  iS art, excerp ot  reports handed to Commissioners by Clerk Robert Burns,  who is probably best fitted of  all local officials to give advice  on this very serious- question.  1. SUPPLY     '  Commencing at the top end,  Inge Creek; Apparently the  present intake is collecting all  the water visible at this source,  and the pipe delivers it to the  main reservoir. It is possible  that an increase in flow, perhaps considerable, could be  obtained by excavation at- the  source,to bed-rock or hard-pan.  I would not like to venture  any opinion on this.  Further down another spring  was   tapped   in  a  couple   of  years ago and gave a fair flow  during all of 1950; that is, a  2" pipe about full, though at  low velocity. During 1951 very,  little water was obtained from  this  source,   and  that  mostly  contaminated.    The   decreased  flow of water was a result of  weed   growth,   vegetable^ deposit,   etc.,  blocking the flow  from  the   springs to  the  pipe  line,  so that the water oozed  away  through   the    soil.   The  installation  here  wate   of   ex>-  perimental character, to determine what water could be obtained ; I suggest that the area  of the  spring should  be  property  and thoroughly  cleaned  ' out  so  that the  full   delivery  would be put into the reservoir  aaid that  a fence1 bei built so  that    contamination    of    the  spring by roaming  stock will  cease. A short fence should be  set up also at the upper intake  so that stock will not readily  have access to the areas above  the intake.  The main springs at the reservoir appear to contain a  good supply, and there is perhaps no work required there;  unless, perhaps, cleaning sedimentation from the bottom of  the  reservoir.  I  am  not  sure  means    no   heavy   expense   in  intake  dams and long supply  mains.  Pumping  equipment  is  set up on the job. During the  past   year    sample,   of  water  from these springs have been  unsatisfactory,   but   it    seems  likely,  in view of past experience, that if proper measures  wjerei  carried   out  to   protect  the  water  from  local  surface  contamination   sa'mples  would  again be  satisfactory  as they  were  for  many   years.  Alternatively,  if  reasonable efforts  toward local protection do not  prove  completely satisfactory,  installation  of  hypo-chlorinating equipment can be done for  seven or eight hundred dollars.  Such    equipment    would     be  fully automatic, and operating  costss would*  not   be  great.   I  would  suggest here,  that  investigation' be made into   the  matter of drilled wells at this  source, in place of digging and  cementing.   I  have  no   experience  with  drilled wells,   and  can   offer   no   definite   recommendation; however, the practice is  gaining in  favor very  rapidly     in    Frasetf    Valley,  where excellent flows of pure  water   are   obtained   in spots  which    to    an   ���inexperienced  eye seem to be almost certain  to be impure.. Thjere is also the  question  of locating the' place  to   drill;  in   these  matters  it  would   seem  likely    that  the  advice   of   someone  of  experience should be obtained as a  guide.  I stress the advisability of  making use of every gallon of  water that is so close to us; V  this Village is going to need  a lot of water, and the cost  of tapping in remote mountain  creeks will be very high. We  hold rights for 50,000 gallons  per day at the Village springs,  and there is every reason to  believe that amount, possibly  more, can be. obtained.  The above deals with water  supply   directly    adjacent   to  that this is necessary, but the'    present mains   or  reservoirs;  matter might be studied.  East of the main reservoir,  on Village property, there are  a number of untapped springs.  Mow from these is almost  impossible to estimate, but I  would hazard la guess of a  total of perhaps 20,000 gallons  per day. Perhaps the best way  to proceed with any development here would be to put in  a bull-dozer to ��� discover the  actual sources, and then it-  would be possible to more  closely estimate flow. Any:  water available here would be  very easily put into the main  supply line.  The Village holds water  rights, of 120,000 gallons per  day-; jpn tihe above combined  sources.  A very important source of  water that has very much  deteriorated in recent years is  the Village springs. A few  years ago these springs were  delivering more than 2,000  gallons per.hour to the pumps,  and very considerable water  was still by-pasising the intakes. These springs appear to  be fed from some very remote  source, from local knowledge  have befen flowing for more  sixty years, the water still  appe'ars at the beach, so there  appears every reason to believe it can again be obtained  for the pumps. The water, in  whatever volume may be obtained, will be at a: point  adjacent to  the mains, which  more water than seems to be  available is certainly going to  be needed as time, goes on; I  attach hereto a memorandum  dealing with possible sources  of water in localities farther  afield.

FUTURE SUPPLY  In-a memorandum I submitted March 24, 1951, I. drew  attention, to the need of careful study of possible supplies  of water to provide for tlie  -certain needs in the perhaps  hear future.  Perhaps # general {picture  ? of tihe situation should be  drawn: It must be understood  that this Village is not fortunately situated as regards a  source of water, of large volume near at hand. A study of  the topography of the, surrounding territory will explain  this; we are located in what  amounts to a tip of a peninsula; contours of the drainage  area; behind us rise very  steeply, and provide little possibility of natural - summer  storage; precipitation on the  mountain back of us runs off  very rapidly to the*sefa. There  is no sunmier flow of water of  any important volume, closer  than seven miles, and erven at  that distance no really large  flow is found. Almost certainly  applications for water rights  on nearly any of the sources,  within reiach. is liable *to meet  opposition from persons and  communities who also need  water, and would represent  that their potential rights  should not be over-ridden.  A proposal has been mad'e,  and received some study by  Boards of Trade (and others,  ���to form a metropolitan water  area, when all the interested  communities would unite in  putting hi a waiter supply  syjstem to supply the whole  area. So fia,r, nothing has been  accomplished in that direction,  but I firmly believe, it is the  only ultimate solution, and  this��?Village is possibly the.,  logical ^ocly^-to ?prQyjde?.J:eiader^v;  ���ship??^H6weye?r,;v"pending such-'  solution, which will cost many  thousands -;of dollars, we must  make? eyery?v effort to', ensure  that we are? able to provide  water for our? own system?.   ~ ?  In -the  memorandum unen- ���  tioned above, 'I pointed to two  sources within   possible  reach  that offered  promise of some,  water to angment-present supplies.  I think .little was done  during tihe year to investigate  these .sources, and from limited  observation I had opportunity'  for, it would appear that further and.more scheduled study  would be worth while. I was  not able to\ niake any study of  Langclaile  Creek, but think  it.  might be considerable, and the ?  sources are fairly well removed .  from any present human habitation. Z"Z.-.'.'  The sources'-suggested in  the last preceding two paragraphs ��eem' to cover most of  the available water, of any  reasonable volume, that could  be   tapped   into   the   present.  system without going so far  afield as to make the proposition almost prohibitive for  this Village to 'handle on its  own resources.  The above enumerated con-  ditions, the scarcity of any  important source of gravity  supply water near at hand,  and the extremely high cost  of supply mains if it becomes  necessary to go far afield,  makes it. advisable that all  local sources should be utilized  to the maximum.  I return again to the advisability of making the fullest  use of all water that can be  obtained from our sources at  Village Springs, and possible  other similar sources; and  again I would urge that information be obtained as to  drilling or boring for water.  If this is practical here, and  in vieiw of the success achieved  in other places, the plan appears promising, it is very  passible that drilling or boring  could be done on the Village  property at D.L. 1313 to obtain  very considerable water. Burring recent yea'rfs; the installation of fairly reliable land  fairly cheap electric power in  thei area has made possible the  use of automatic. pumps so  that wlater can be had without  dependence on gravity, or thei  very costly use of pumping  engines that required constant  attention. Gravity flow is very  desirable but the cost of long  supply lines coupled with possible h'elavy installation and  mlaintenance costs of intakes,  can nullify some of the ad-  vantages-. L  Another matter that I think  should be realized, is that  almost, certainly it will .become  necessary to chlorinate the  supply from iany probable  source now visible, if we are  to ' maintain 'health standards  ,#& cprescmbed -by the Provincial--  Government. Any source of  water witlhin many miles of us  is either in; an areavof human  habitation or drains through  land that w^ll be continuously  "and vinereasingly.travelled by  ihumans. There is also the constant contamination, to some  extent, by animals, both wild  and domestic. On the other  hand, water from deep drilled  wells, in situations of close,  proximity, to fairly dense  population, may be very pure.  Hoav ever, I do not think the  possiblei need of ehlorination  should weigh heavily; from  conversation I had during the  past year with both equipment  firms . and Government engineers, I gather that installations  costs are not prohibitive, and  the technique of use quite  simple.     .

SECHELT  BY ARIES  We had a very pleasant  surprise when we listened for  the first time to a concert in  the Legion Hall by the Peninsula Choraliers. The hall was  filled to capacity. We could  not help thinking how fortunate we are in having the  Choraliers in our midst. Many  had to stand all evening, but  the time passed quickly. Only  favorable comments were  heard on all sides! We enjoyed  the sea chanties with AI Jackson in the solo parts. Men of  Harlech was very well rendered as was also all the other  chorus's.  Mrs. F. Martin of loco was  one of the sruest soloists and  was encored time and again.  She has a very pleasing voice  and charm of manner, and of  course, our own Hilda Lee in  a very prfqtty little number,  "My Mother Bids Me," which  was very well, received. Hilda's  voice is well known here and  needs no comm'ent from us.  Violin selections by Carol  Forst were much enjoyed,^ accompanied by Miss Margaret  Maclntyre.  Community singing is a  must at these gatherings with  Bob Cooke at the piaiio. The  ladies quartet included Mrs.  L. S. Jackson, Mrs. H. Lucken,  Mrs. H. Stockwell, Dorothy  Robbilliard.  Space will not allow a detailed resume of the program  but* every item was enjoyable,  with a word of thanks from  Captain A. Johnson, president  of the Sechelt Branch of the  iJegion, who will benefit by  this concert. Presentation of  a! bouquet of flowers was made  to Mrs. Ted Norburn, choir  accompanist.

Nora-^ is  again on the liig'h seas with  her husband, and loves every  minute of it. She was recently  in New Orleans where a bundle of the Coast News' caught  up with her, so we get around,  loo. Says she will be on the  way home soon, perhaps late  spring.  Mr. and Mrs. John Bertram  were here for, a short visit to  Mrs. Bertram's parents, Mr.  and Mrs. Nels J. Nelson.  Mr. and -Sirs.

Gibsons to Hear  Roberts Orchestra  The Roberts Creek String  Orchestra will present a recital  in Gibsons .on March 28. Last  week, an advertisement in the  Coast News stated that the  recital would be presented by  the. "Wilson Creek String  Orchestra'." Most people, of  courslei, know of the fine  aggregation of musicians that  make up the Roberts Creek  Orchestra, and they will realize ia' mistake was made in the  advertisement. The date, an-  nounced in the paiper, was also  wrong. March 28 is the correct  date. The concert will be held  in the Legion ?Hall, Gibsons.  A corrected advertisement is  carried elsewhere in this issue,  Reader's Right  Editor, The News.  Sir: ���  Now thai we are fast becoming a .'Tourist Attraction'  .point and will have many  caravans of autos touring our  roads, how about perking up  our homes an^j? gardens with, a  fine display of flowers?  Now is the time to get out  the garden tools and have a  real campaign. Cultivate the  soil a bit and plan what you  are going to grow; this year.  If you have a bit of ground  or garden, "do" use it. If not,  what about window boxes?  Petunias are very effective if  planted in clumps of one  .shade. Have you tried "Rosy  Morn"? ��� they are a. beautiful bright pink and bloom profusely 'all season.  Nasturtiums ate another  ���favorite, easily grown and  very colorful. Asters, stocks,  cla'rkia and larkspur in their  many colors, are all good annuals for your garden and nice  for cut-flowers; over a long  season. 'Mums and dahlias for  the Fair days are a "must."  If your thoughts run to food,  why not plant a few vegetables?       ,  Lettuce should be grown in  every home garden. The little  space needed to give; regular  returns, the unusual crispness  and freshness associated with  the home grown product,  makes it well worthy of providing for in this season's  vegetable) plans.. t  The best policy for a small  garden is to sow just a few  seeds every week or ten days.  By- this method young plants  will be available regularly to  set out. The harvest, reaching  the kitchen later on will be in  a steady stream, just enough  at all times for immediate  needs.
