An intermittent sun  made the day niot too hot nor too. cold, and the school ground  was crowded with   Seichielt   and   Selma residents ais well as a��  good number of summer calipers.  The program started off in     ���~��������� ~~~r������: ??���  the morning with the crown  ing of the queen and the races  for the children.  By early af te rnoon the  crowd had gathered. Bingo  ^ancjl the rifle shoot were in  full swing, hot dogs were selling likei bargain counter stuff,  and over inr the far corner'^a'  crowd gathered around to  watch the log-bucking contest  for both men and >v6meh.;  Two highlights of -thei afternoon were the' greasy-pole-  elimbing contest, with two of  the1 young fry peaching the  top of the slippery twenty-foot  pole, and pillow, fight where  opponent met opponent while  sjtraddled atop a horizontal  pole hi a slug-out .battle with  ���   pillows.

Two  other officers were re-elected:  Jack Mayne; was again named  secretary, and Mrs. Dori s  Berry was na'mied treasurer.  Orville  Moscrip was named  vice-president,   replacing   Jim  ������ Parker, who. had  headed  the  nominating committee.  Ten. directors were also  named after several of the  nominees dropped out of the  running in order to spare an  . election. The new directors  are, Mrs. Ivy Colweli, Mrs. C.  Forst, Mickey Coe, Charles '  Stewart,' Ben La"ng, Charlie  Lunn, Bill Swain, Ted Cooke,  Dave Walker and Clarence  Me Donough.  v?Prior to election of officers,  the* board of trade elected to  membership Harold Pearl, C.

During the business'meeting,  thei members voted to write  Sechelt Motor Transport requesting that they refrain from  .-using? their horn as /an arrival  signal after 10 o'clock at  night.

Kin Park Project  Near Completion  Still accentuating, the. playground project, Kinsmen look  forward to having the? swings  and teeters erected this week  in. thei Community park in'the  Bay area of Gibsons. The new  ground for the erection of  the swings, will be cleared of  stones, and thei frames for the  swings are all ready to be  placed in the foundation holes.  Club members have worked  practically ��� every Sunday to  get the grounds in shape for  the summer season, and it is  expected that the main project  will be finisheid up this year.  Additional swings and other  facilities will, of course, be  added as the park becomes  more popular in. .the future.  In a few diays the park will  be ready to welcome! picnickers  and will offer a children's  playground, ball par?k, stove,  and picnic tables.

L S. Jackson Given  Honorary Membership  "For an outstanding contribution to the Sechelt Board of  Tradis," wa's the reason given in the wording of a. motion to  give h. S. Jackson, honorary membership for life in. the. Sechelt  Board of Trade. Speaking to the resolution which put up his  nalme for the honorary membership, several members, lauded the  veteran member for the active participation and interest he had  taken in all phases of board of trade life.  The granting of honorary life membership to Mr. Jackson  followed the reading of his' letter requesting resignation from  active participation. He said, in his letter, that he thought  younger businessmen should take over board of trade activities.  ne^r, the proposed site of the  . fire hall, will,make'vfor a more     spite the fact he was "under  So, now the "Bainbridge  is on the run.

C^di  ���t  itonal5  Another Solution to the V 01 Problem  While this paper continues to boost for VON, we would  like to point out the present canvass for funds is not, by any  xnea'ns, the only sane solution to the problem confronting us.  With that statement; everybody will agree.  The measly $300 collected from the; Provincial government  is not enough. l When we can prove* thait our VON service is  Actually saving hospitalization for many of our people ��� and  &fcms saving the Hospital Insurance thousands of dollars a year  ��� we should not have to go around from door to door asking  a couple of dollars from each houshold.  It appears, however, that, the government is unable to make  any speleial grant 'to us for VON purposes. Even if our position  were were unique ��� which it probably is ��� it would still be  setting a precedent on the part of the government. They would  he sticking their necks out.  However, we do understand that thei department of health  and welfare is broadening the scope of work haindled by its  public heialth nurses. Insteiad of majoring in school nursing and  baby -clinic work, the public health nurses will have their jobs  broadened to include injections for pensioners, and bedside  ja��rsing.  If this is the case, we would like to ask the government to  usei the Sechelt Peninsula.as a; guinea, pig for the scheme. Put  it ftito effcel here, and let's see how it works out. (It would, of  eourse, mean an assistant for the present nurse;, but the salary  woulcjj be paid wholly by the government.)  This scheme seeams to be the real solution to the problem  of nursing here on the Peninsula. V.  Meanwhile, let's continue to^giyejvfor ; the YON. /We can't  let the- service lag. And goverhmeut departme/nts are always  slow to move?  Header's Right  "JHE  RESUSCITATOR  Editor, The Coast News,  Sir: ���  .-Since thei start of the Resuscitator campaign on June 23,  many questions ��� have been  ���asked as to the' meaning of  the word.  A resuscitator is a. pressure-  eontrolled .oxygen supplying  .mechanism which maintains  ihe breiathing tempo and the  >axygen supply in an unconscious body even though nor-'  mal respiration has stopped.  It' will do this without fear of  clanger to the: lungs even if  fhey are endangered by broken  ribs.  In having a resuscitator it  means that any victims of near  drowning, gassing, cave-ins,  shock, electrocution, and heart  attack, may have instant' aid  without being endangered by  -possible inefficient artificial  Tespiration.  It means also that a victim  of pneumonia,  severe asthma,  etc., can get   quick relief   by  oxygen   when   deemefl   necessary by a physician-  It   means   One,   Big   Safety  Item to   our   children   during  their play on  our beaches' or  ��� boating around our shores.  And last, but not least,  it  means that our firemen have  a? means of quick relief if and  when   any    of   them   become  victims.of heavy smoke;.  If this has in-any way he?lped  to clarify the importance of  our eanipaign, I hope vvou will  dig deep. The instrument is-not  for your fire brigade, but for  YOU!  ��� John Bunyan,  Fire Chief.  Only one bunch of bananas  grows to a tree.  Junior Farm Show  e of Largest  Junior Farmer Show of the  Pacific National Exhibition,  alreiady hailed as one of the  Continent's' greatest,- is expected to surpass all previous  records, according to advice  from clubs to G. Ia Landon,  chairman of the Junior Farmer Committee1.  'Growth and magnitude of  the show, a vital part of the  PNE program of stimulating  agriculture, is seen in the fact  that PNE expenditure on the  event in 1941 wa's $1,700, rising to $5,250 in 1947 and last  year totalled $15,407.  The   show   starts   on   PNE  opening day,  August 20, and  continues   through    Saturday,  August 23.  Club  members return to their homes that evening or the next day, but their  calves remain for the duration  of thei PNE, until September 1.  A new project this year  is  the Tractor Driving and Maintenance Competition for Tractor Club members. Under show  rules, club members must compete in at least three  of the  following   competitions,   stock  judging, swine carcass, poultry  judging or halter making.  Prize lists and entry forms  have already gone, out to the  clubs and the entry deadline  has been set at August 1, in  order that the PNE can arrange for dormitory accommodation which, with meals, ar'e  furnished;free by the PNE.

We were very pleased to  receive an invitation' to the  sehool on what, is . known as  Beginners Day the'first of  its kind ever held here, and it  is, we hope, to be a yearTy  event'. The; idea is to give all  the small fry about to start  schoolvin September an oppor- ,  t'unity\to meet their teacher  and thei other little fellows.  Well, it. was certainly ai grand  time. The young mothers got  together for a chat and a cup  of tea and cookies, and the  '[little .people had their soft  drin?ks and went right along  with the rest of us.

Clements  Thursday July 3 1952  The Coast News         Si  Reader's Right  Editor, The Coast-News,  It would be unfortunate to  allow Mr. Andrew Johnston's  letter headed "Liberals Start  Campaigning,'' which appeared in your issue of Thursday,  June 26,, to pass unchallenged.  In my opinion it is most  hopeful to find in this election  the British Columbia public  expressed distinct individual  thinking, and finally, departed  from allowing their party to  think for them.  In th|e! first place, it seeing  clearly obvious why so many  "free enterprise" voters embraced a new party, if merely  to support just that ��� freiej  enterprise, tjndoubtedly, our  present government has instituted legislation far removed  from such. Hospitalization being only one outisltanding example.  As to committing "Hari-  Kari," I can only ,,feel that  Mr. Johnston resorts, to "sour  grapes" when -he sinks to the  use of such an expression after  , the apparent defeat of his  party at the poll.  To assert that the present  membie'r of the MacKenzie  riding is bringing afaout the  greatest progress this constituency has ever known is utter  piffle. What progress and  wherje;? I understand the. member is actually taking credit  for road construction. Which  road? If he mean)?) the double,  flushing from Wilson Creek  to Sechelt, I can- rtelfer him to  a statement oi his at a Liberal  meeting held at Sechelt just  two months prior to his flushing, at which he: clearly inr-  formed his audience that there  was no more .appropriation for  roads for two years. Also to  his last attempt in the House  towa��d|��froad7 construction, at  which hfe, Endeavoured to have  the government make the road  on Texada Island from Van1-  anda to the Ore mine in order  for thfejm to ship ore to Japan,  but no mention of the- Gibsons  to Sechelt highway.   --  Mr. Johnston seems happy  to refer to the "tremendous  progress our Province has enjoyed under %Libjejral leadership."! submit similar progress anight appear, evident  ;undet any leadership during  an inflationary period, but  that i?iound progress can be attained only by an honest effort  towards solvency and reduction- of the provincial debt.  The present government and  Coalition government have  shown how easy it is to prosper from credit of future generations. ���.,-  I would like io remind Mr.  Johnston that the overbearing  strength of two different parties, dominated by monopolistic  interests ini Europe during the  ''last decade was the ultimate  downfall of .tvyo respective  nations, and to 'advocate, as'he  presume!?, in His letter, and to  impose, as is evident in his  mind, that th)e< citizens of this,  riding rally to the party of  his choice is to depart entirely  from freedom of thought and  the democratic principle of  which we., of this nation are  so proud.  Apparently ������" the party, < to  which he is ? such a staunch  supporter, lacks the necessary  material - towards leadership,  by way of the fact that it had  to borrow from : another party  it'�� can did ate in this election.  It is indeed unfortunate  that such an utterance of  partisanship should emanate  from one who should, at least,  uphold the dignity of the  Bench, to which his party appointed him.  ' ' ' l ��� II.

Fifty businessmen from all points along the  Sunshine Coast boarded the  MV Norsal . in Porpoise Bay  last Wednesday morning*. . .  The Norsal is a spit-'n-polish  sort of ship with hardwood all  over the place, a piano and  easy chairs in a spacious  lounge ��� and big enough to  make an ocean voyage. She  was loaned to the*, B.C. Power  Commission for the outing by  W. Clarke Gibson, commodore  of the Royal Vancouver Yacht  Club ���-- and she flew his flag  on the foreyard.  She  left  at  9:30  a.m.  with  everybody in a congenial  mood. A warm sun, lalong with  a cool breeze, made the weather  perfect  for  the  day.   And  everybody    chatted    together.  Some of the boys cornered the  Hon. A. D. TUrnbull, minister  of health a'nd welfare, and put  the VON problem Up to him.  while others remarked, in chatty  manner,  that   they  hadn't  paid  their hospital  insurance.  Others    chatted    with . S.  R.  Weston,     Power     Commission  chairman, and everybody talked  to  one   another  ���  except  those who found a sunny spot  to catch up on a. snooze.  Two hours later, after passing a 22 mile, scenic panorama  of typical B.C. beauty, the  crew disembarked at Clowhom  and went straight to the dining room where turkey sandwiches, pickles, coffee* and pie  went down good after a fresh-  air appetizer.  Through the power plant to  see the, Hon. Douglas Turnbull  turn a valve to set a dynamo  in motion. This was the official opening of the Clowhom  power development. Then ba'ck  to. the, ship.  There was singing on the  way back with Bob Cooke at  the piano, and Ernie Pearson  and his choir murdering Annie  Laurie and a few' others.  ,  A bang-up dinner in the Sechelt Inn concluded the full  day ��� and everybody wentv  home feeling, that they had  spent, one of the, finest days ol  their live/s. ?'������?

Mr. Turnbull told a group  of Peninsula, men, gathered  for dinner in the Sechelt Inn  afier a trip to the project, that  the only way to increase our  standard of living was to increase our -output per man  hour; He said that no "ism,"  no new political party, and no  one group,? could increase our  overall financial position, unless we increase our output  per man hour. This, he said,  could be done by the increased  use of electricity in our plants.  The new Clowhom , development has made it possible for  the Peninsula to increase their  output per. man hour and in  that way boost . the living  standards..

"However, under recent ar-  ,ran.gemen\.s between the national office' and the "postal  authorities, postmasters are  now required to return-, cheques  to the regional office when it  is found that they are undel-  ivera'ble at the address given.  "It should-;be noted that  filing a change of address  with the posi master is not  sufficient. It also is necessary  to notify the regional office  in Victoria directly.

Her son. has  just graduated from UBC with  his B.Sc, degree.  It is hard io keep up with  Mrs. Margaret Arnold. Now  she is off to Britain again ���  this time to nurse, a sick relative who is ill. She is coming  back here, however. She prefers Canada, with all its faults,  to Britain with its free glasses.

There  is too little- of that for boys  hare; they just seem to be  turned loose to find their own  way.
