Government Acts On  Farmer Request  In? the dying days of:-our  legislature, and probably as a  result-of the government having to face a rural electorate,  agriculture finally obtained  action on its "three perennial  request.     viz  dayli  ght  saving, school taxation and 'removal of sales tax on irrigation  equipment.  In  regard  to daylight  sav-  . ing,  the    government   finally  agreed   to    fhe  request made  by   the    B.C.    ?Federatioii    of  Agriculture and the Farmers'  Institutes    that    a - plebiscite  should be taken at the time of  the  coming  election.  Farmers  have   naturally   been   opposed  to    advancing   the    clock    as  neither their cows nor the dew  on their ground would adjust  themselves to the clock. Realizing that many townspeople ���  such as mothers of young children and those/ whose occupations    are    adjusted    to    our  transportation  systems ��� are  also opposed'j we now feel that  a plebiscite will show the.tr.ue  wishes of the majority, aiid by  such a democratic decision the  farmers are prepared to abide.  In respect to school taxation,  farmers for many years  have  shown  to the  government the  injustices   tliat   exist   through  such a large percentage of the  cost  of  education  being  paid  by   tax  on   land.  Within  the  past   year   briefs   have . been  presented to the federal  government   by  the. B.C.  Federation of Agriculture, the Union  of B.C. Municipalities and the  B.C.

As far as is known, Bouche*'  has not turned in his resigis_?-  tion, and he was present at &'  special meeting of the couceiiv  in Gibsons on Tuesday eveniiirgr  of this-week.  tion.

There, the weather-  beaten posters smack the visitor right in the eye as he drives  .up off the ferry, and gives the impression sloppiness.  Whoever is responsible for its -erection should also be responsible for its upkeep ��� or for its demolition if it has served  sts .purpose.  If'the bulletin board were jammed alongside the theatre,  the liquor store, or the post office, it probably wouldn't be too  (bad; but for the sun-faded, water-marked signs to be slapped  tap against what is dedicated as a~ House of God, it is, perhaps,  touching on sacrilege.  For instance, when one goes to church, one hardly wants  *to be reminded that when he is in Vancouver he can 'enjoy a  ���cool beer at such-and-such a hotel.  Wanted Rod Enthusiasts  Pender Harbour's name is pretty  well known in sporting  circles as a fishing centre. But only as al salt-water fishing centre.  Most transporatibn around the ?Karbour has been by boat, and  trolling has become a natural.

The public will learn a great  deal during the. next -30 ;days  of what has been done, and  what is planned, in the field  of cancer. But the: effort" itself  knows no iseason.  At this moment several hundred Canadian!  scientists^ with  the assistance of the Canadian  Cancer   Society,   are   working  tirelessly-  in   universities  and  hospitals    across    Canada    in.  their search for the cause and .  cure   of   caincer.   These    able  workers have already contributed to advances in the treatment of the disease. However,  if   are   to   make   the. most  of  .' these advances,- it is important  that   diagnosis  ble. made; and  treatment   given  at an   early  stia'ge.-,6f the  disease.  To   this  end, the Canadian Cancer So-  . ciety conducts ah ever-expanding educational programme to  . bring  thei facts  about  cancer  .  to the public.  In cancer, as in all chronic  diseases,   patients   land   their -  dependents may face problems  which ..can-be solved only by  a 'helping liancl which provides  sick    room    supplies,    family  bare, or transportation to and '  from clinics.

Vancouver IsSand  During 1951 nine varieties  of main cro'p potatoes were  -tested on the Courtenay Illustration Station. Yield?, cooking quality, and dry matter  content were recorded for all  varieties tested. The varieties  under tes\. were- Canso, Bur-  bank, Canus, Columbia Russet,  Green Mountain, Katahdin,  Keswick,. Netted Gem, and  White ?Rose. The season was  particularly dry and' as a  result none of the yields totalled more than -5.7 tons per  acre. Some of the varieties,  such as Burbank and Netted  Gem, which are adapted to  more moist soil conditions did  . not show up to the advantage.  Katalittin was. the leading  variety on both a marketable  yield and cooking seore basis  with the late blight resistant  variety Keswick placing second in both of these department?. Green Mountain was  the third yielder but fell down  on cooking score.' Columbia  Russet was equal to Keswick  on    cooking    score    but    fell  down  on yield.  Present potato recommend-  .ations will not be altered until  the varieties Have been tested  fur at least three years as  results for one. season do not  provide adequate information  for  new  recommendations.

The horse is.making  its last stand against the  never tiring tractor. The' kerosene lantern is being replaced  by the electric bulb as hydro  wires are being strung across  the rural countryside like huge  spider webs. The automobile  is now considered a necessity  of farm transport. But modern  as they are, many Canadian  fa'rms require ,a highly essential thing to bring them up-to-  date ��� a huge paint job.  Go anywhere in the rural,  scene and evidence will be  there in abuudance^ Weather-  beaten houses and barns which  too often haven't been touched  by a paint brush for years ���  if at all; valuable implements  brown with rust; dingy home  and barn interiors.    ���  A farmer wouldn't think  twice of providing a shelter  for. his poultry and livestock,  but protection for an investment of thousands of dollars  is too often overlooked.

Was Pari leg  Modern research indicates  that Sir James Douglas, known  as the "Father of British  Columbia," wate half-Negro,  an article in Maclean's magazine has revealed.  The article,, entitled "The  Mulatto King of B.C." by  Mary Elizabeth Colman, British Columbia writer and historical researcher, calls Douglas -"a stubborn enigmatic  figure," and that "the benevolent tyranny by which he  ruled the province has few  parallels in history."  Douglas was the second governor of British Columbia.  "While biographies <of Sir  Douglas say he was a Scot, ,  modern research indicates he  was born in the West Indies in  1803, son of a Scottish father  and a Jamaican mother," the  article says. "His contemporaries took his mixed blood  for granted."  ?M?iss Colman also points out  that Douglas married the  daughter of a. Cree Princess,  who became B.C.'s First Lady.  "He was thought of as an  old fashioned autocrat, yet he  was the first man to urg�� the  building of the Trans-Canada  Highway and the defence of  the Pacific Coast against Russia," the article points out,  adding that "his name is writ  large in the annals of B.C.,  for ] the simple reason that  without him the province  might today be United States  territory."

AND BOYS LEAD  Six out of every hundred  teen-agers write with their left  hand. Jerlyn Madison, handwriting consultant of Sheaffer  Pen Company, reports. Four  of the six are boys, and only  two. are girls. No one knows  why boys are more subject to  sinistro-dextrality, as the experts call it. Neither is there  any proof as to what causes it  in the first place. Although  there are often several people  in one family who are left-  handed, there is no proof that  the tendency is inherited.  A COLD FACT  Did you know that you get  more miljeage from cold gasoline? That may sound like  Eskimo nonsense but it is a  cold fact, according to Minneapolis-Honeywell Regulator  Co. Here's how they explain  it: It seems that during the  last war the company's aero  engineers discovered while doing devlopment ^work on electronic fuel gauges, that warm  gasoline lexpands, weigh less  per gallon and thus provides  less. fuel. A strong mid-day  sun is enough to warm the  gasoline and cheat you on your  expected mileage.

We always have difficulty     spelling     this     girl's  name,   but most   of   .us   hereabout   know   her    as    Myrtle.  There are two of ihe Solbergs  girls,  and  both   of   tliem   are  wonderful   shots.   They    have  for  many   years    kept    down  marauding    coons    and    other  depredatory animals. We hope  Myrtle gets a suitable reward;  it's a quite a' feat for a small  girl. Wonder  if it's the same  cougar  seen   around  Egmont?  If so, we  are  glad its day is  ended; it  got away with  several pet dogs up there.  Some  hunters  with    cougar   hounds  were  up   there  after   it,   but  evidently he played smart and  was not  around  at the  time.  Usually when they come down  after   domestic   animals,   they  are too old to prey on the wild  ones.  We wish to welcome to Sechelt Mr. and Mrs. Hughie  Gresham with ^the little girls,  Helen and Gaye, and the two  Scottie  dogs.  Captain    Andrew    Johnston  and Walter McKissock will be  attending   the   Liberal   party  convention in Vancouver April  21 as official delegates of Sechelt and District Association.

Mrs. Archie Williams is in  Vernon attending the - Girl  Guide convention. We hope  she will have a good time, and  come back full of new>'ideas.

This will be most welcome as  the younger people complain  that there isn't much to do.  We look forward to seeing  . some good league playing. We  often go to see teams play .in  Vancouver. Can't play ourselves, but like to watch.  Glad to see our friend and  collegue on this paper, Mrs.  Nestman, here last week. She  came over to visit her daughter and son in law, who operate a gas station here. Looks  well.  It will be very nic/e to have  Allan  Andrews  back  with  us  in Sechelt. Remember when he  lived here in Sechelt West and  had such a wonderful' garden.  Such a  tragedy  in  the loss  of life of William "Red" McBean in the fire which wiped  out   Totem  Lodge  at   Selma.  The  alarm was turned   in  by  little Mardi Walker, daughter  of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Walker  of Selma Park, who awoke to  . see flames bursting .out from  the building. With great presence  of-mind she phoned the  "local   operator,   Ronald  Hyde,  as  also did Mrs. Barker.  The  Volunteer   Fire   Brigade   were  soon on the job, but could do  nothing to  save the building,  owing to the high wind blowing at   the  time.    They    did,  however,   keep   tlie  fire   from  spreading. Totem Lodge, owned  by   Mr.   and   Mrs. "Living  stone, was a well known land  mark here. Built for Union  Steamships in 1922, it was a  very famous dance hall and  tea room when parties came  up from Vancouver on the old  "Capilano" to hold their anr  nual picnics and dances. Now  it is no more. Our sympathies  to all concerned.  Sorry to hear Pat Garrod is  away from the local switchboard and tinder the weather,  we hear. Hope, she will be  back soon. Her place is being  very well filled in an emergency by Mrs.  Cummins.  Very  nice  voice  on the phone,  and  so 'courteous.  How nice for Selma Park  .that Mr-, and Mrs. Geo Kynoch  will now be permanent residents. They nave given up  their apartment in Vancouver  and are here to stay. Very  musical, these ���, an .asset in  these days. Hear they have  brought up their baby grand  piano. That might mean lots of  musical evenings this winter.

There will be high-  fashion polka dots, small gold-  printed designs, gay stripes  and intriguing novelty fabrics  in print* and weaves. Puckered fabrics will also be obtainable in a greater variety  of  colors  and  textures.  This year, for the first time  some   stores  will  be  carrying  permanently-pleated tricot for  home-sewers who  make    their  own  lingerie.  Plain   tricot  in  both lo. denier and the heavier  30 denier will also be featured.  For-bridal gowns and formal  wear there will be, filmy nylon  net    and    heavy    nylon    marquisette for home-sewn crinolines.  This   latter  material   is  impregnated with a  stiffening  that     lasts    through     several  washings.  Due to nylon's strength,  sharp scissors, pins and sewing  machine needles are required  in home-sewing with nylon.  Tension on both needle and  bobbin should be loose to prevent puckering. Longer stitch- V-2 cup corn meal  es than used with other fabrics .1 cup milk  -���will get better results.  Because nylon clothing'is so  easily laundered, it is important to sew seams, that will not  fray when washed. Raw edges,  therefore, should never be left  on woven nylon. ��� French or  felled seams will prevent .this  or edges can be overcast by  hand. Pinking raw edges is a  suitable finish only for bias  cut seams.  Cook's Corner  By Shirley Pinchin, B.H.E.  You are behind the times if  you still think of peanuts as.  a snack for elephants.

I, therefore, would  ask that you publicize these  facts  through your  columns.  At no time have I owned a  sub-division in Gibsons. My  son, however, purchased the  controversial sub-division upon  his return, from Overseas. He  divided it into lots and pla'ced  them on the market. Only recently did I purchase three of  them from- him. However, I  did take over the management  of the sale of them, due to his  attendance at the; University.  In. order to benefit1 the proposed buyers of these lots, and  also with Messrs. John and  Norm MacKay, owners of  adjacent property, we joined  with them, in financing and  installing a sufficiently large  water pipe; line, with hydrant  connection, -etc., to serve the  whole new area.  When this was all inspected  and passed by Mr. Graham  and-Supervised by Mr. Burns,  the Village Clerk, we were  assured that if and when District Lot 686 were amalgamated with the Village we all  would receive the return of  our personal outlay. v  As Messrs. John MacKay  and Norm IVIacKay. have carried their share of the financial burden with us for over  two years, I am bound to join  with them in protest regarding any reduction in their due  return.  If misrepresentation is the  price of service to the public,  I regret to say that I consider  it my right-to be able to resign from the ?Board of Commissioners, although I had not  done so, as or when so stated  in the Province.

Youngster  Sounded  Totem Lodge Alarm  The report on the recent-fire  at Selma Park was in correct-  in naming Selma Lodge as the  building which burned to the  ground. It was Totem Lodge  which was totally destroyed  when wind-fanned flames  swept through the structure,  taking the life of William G.  ''Red"  McBean.  Little Mardi Walker, living  nearby, wakened to see flames  bursting from the building.  Calmly and determinedly, she  phoned in the alarm which  brought the fire brigalde to  the scene. Constable Cummins  of the RCMP had earlier  dispatched an unindentif ied  woman to sound the alarm,  but there was evidently some  delay in her reaching a telej:  phone. The little Walker girl  was forst to put the call  through.
