Why Not Name It
Gorham Avenue?
Executive of the Sechelt Board of Trade has named Mickey
€oe chairman of the) Park committee! of the Board. His job will
be to head up the committee which'will begin immediate ini-'
provements on Haekett Park. Clearing will begin immediately
to improve the tract of land donated for park purposes by Union
Estates Limited. .,-'■.
"Mickey has done.', a grand
job in the pa('t as chairman
cf. the May D'ay committee,"
President Ernie Pearson told
the Coast News, "and because
of the success that has crowned his efforts on the May Day
committee, we have alskcd him
to take on this big job this
year." '       *»       .
Maim emphasis of. tha Board,
will be placed on the Ha'ckett
Park development and it. is
anticipated that a- special
Labor Day program will be
drawn up to raifie funds for
the Board of Trader project.
Another important project
of the board will be the study
of village incorporation and
the chairman of this committee will be Jim Parkeir who
recently replaced Ben Lang as
a member, of the Council.
Other committee chairmen
are Mrs. C. Forst who will
head the social committee;
Mrs. I. Col well who will handle publicity; O. Moscrip, civic
affairs; Dave Walker, trade
and industry; C. Limn,, mem-
benrtship" and   finance,   and W.
Up from California, B. A.
Gorham, a* brother in law of
Mrs. W. S. Clendinning and'
E. G. Sergant, didn't like, to
have to move his car off a
narrow road in Gibsons each
time a car wanted to pass.
Taking matters into his own
hands, he hired Charlie Klein's
bulldozer and widened the
road so that he could park
and other cars could pass.
So excellent is the; job he
has done that, sightseers are
now being taken that way to
show off the fact that the village has at least one piece of
good road.
Residents want it called
Gorham Avenue.

We who make the Peninsula our year-round home, can only  land itsbjeiauty in spasmodic lettertei to friends, or in our infre-  *nient visits to town   The {summer camper, however, lives a carefree life for a> short  wM!&, then, with happy thoughts brimful in his memory, can return to his home town- and talk about it. Talk about the fish that  got away; the sunburn while dozing on the beach; the hike down  the shaded path; the campfire with burnished marl-hmallows!  THey are the! ambassadors of goodwill that talk behind our  '.backs'- and tell about our billion dollar assets.  We include among the campers all the young people who are-  enrolled in the many campfe we? have in our midst: Guide camp at  Wilson Creek, Scout Camp at Roberts,Wonderland Camp for  Grirls, Stratford Camp for youngsters, Salvation- Army Camp at  Mopkifnjs, Y Camp at Williamsons - and thei others.  It is not building castjieis in the air to assume that some of the  youngsters at Camp Byng, for example, will become so enthusiastic over our Sunshine Coast that they will return, as adults.  to build homes here, open busintessieis here, and help make our  district prosper. i  And, because ?of that potential, we who are the year-round  residents should do our be^/t'tp see that they are made most welcome during their stay with us.  The Best le Knew  :&  TONY SAYS THANKS  Editor, The News,  Sir: ���"'.,';.. -"��� ,  I would, like to thank all thej  CCF workers and voters on the  Sechelt Peninsula who have  given }5io much of their time  and money to makg this victory possible). Without those  sacrifices, the CCF could ;nev&r  have placed its message oeiore  the hundreds of voters who  live) along the rugged coast of  MacKenzie. .  "On'e of my first tasks will  be to work towards a settlement of the lumber fritrike and  get the operators and Union  together. The operators have  repeatedly refused to meet  with -the Uiiion but I will do  what I caai? to bridge the gap  and get the vtwo parties together. /-  "The campaign|waB an exhausting oiie but staying in  people s homiei? as 1 have during  the campaign, working with insufficient funds, depending on  sacrifice .rathjeir tha/ri cash, I  realised hOW; much faith had  been placed in the CCF party  and how- great was our responsibility.  "On the provincial scene it  appears the .CCF will emerge  ias the largejt single party with  a bigger representation in Victoria that it nas ever bad. The  CCF will be able to combine  20 years , of legislative experience with a? genuine, knowledge  of people ^problem!?.

In past repent years and  particularly this yeaJr the mem-  beirs of the fair committee have  endeavored to increase the  prize list. We realize that the  point system is not altogether  satisfactory aud much as we  would like to get away from  that method, we catanot for the  simple reason that not enough  cash or goods are available.  For thei information of all  exhibitors we would point out  that in calculating the total for  vaHouis. prizes, first prize equals  thrice points, second prize two  points and third prize, one.  Two hundred dollars has been  reserved for prizes this year  aud in the adult sections the  allocations are: specials/ $3.50 ^  }st>?prize,?$3; 2nd, $2.50; 3rd  $2.00 aind 4th;; $1.75. Junior  section prizes will bie; increased  a little ovier la!st year "and the  amount passejd for the school  section is $50.00.  On an average, it has taken  close to $600 to rum the; fair  with  a   1 ower  estimate? for  prizes. If \ve could pay according to each prke card, and do  away  with  the''point system,  we   would  require   fully .tha$  amount for prizes alone.       v  It will he* a; happy' day for  any commi|.tee of future fairs  when it can set out with clofse  to $1,000 for prizes.

CHEVROLET  MORE PEOPLE BUY CHEVROLET TRUCKS  THAN ANY OTHER MAKE  Stack up what you get for what yon pay... and join the  nation's largest groap of buck buyers by choosing Chevrolet  Maybe, you didn't know that by far the biggest  number of truck users in Canada today are buying Chevrolet Trucks.  They are . . . and for good hard-headed  reasons. Because what they're after in a truck can  be set down about like this:  1) It's got to be low in cost. No use paying a  lot of extra money for a truck that the truck will  have to earn back. Chevrolet trucks give you  more for your money.  2) Upkeep and operating costs must be low.  A truck is money-making equipment. It can't  be a money-waster. Chevrolet trucks work for  rock-bottom "wages" on fuel and maintenance.  3) How well the truck does the job is all-  important. "It's got to have the capacity, power  and rugged construction to get work done���efficiently and economically. Chevrolet trucks are*.  engineered and built for your loads.  4) The truck must be rugged, long lasting*.  That's an important part of over-all ecpnomy.-  Chevrolet trucks traditionally bring more at'  trade-in; for wft&tbey'^ other truck..  If these considerations make sense to ypus,  take a good long look at facts 1,2, 3 and 4 below*.  Then come in and let's see how a, Chevrolet truck,  can save you money in your business.  OW THE ROAD WITH THE  GREATEST PAYLOAQ  Wore truck for your money  Stack up a Chevrolet truck  against any other truck,  capable of handling the  same payloads, and you'll  see that Chevrolet gives  you far more for your  money. Chevrolet^ for all  its low price,. brings you  ruggedness,v stamina, and  exclusive truck features  you won't find in many  trucks costing a lot more.  h  Rock-bottom operating costs  #Many ^thousands of truck  users have proved to their  own satisfaction that Chevrolet costs the least of all  to own and maintain.  Valve-iri-Head economy, in  the four great Chevrolet  engines, saves on gas.  Chevrolet's special 4-way  engine lubrication system  reduces friction and wear,  keeps oil costs low.      '  Engineered and built  for your loads  Chevrolet trucks are engineered to your payioad  requirements. \?bu don't  waste money by buying  "too much truck" ��� you  don't risk work interruption or slow-downs by;  buying "too little truck."  Frame, axles, springs, body,  brakes, and power are part  of a well-balanced team.  Lower, slower depreciation  Records show that Chevrolet trucks traditionally  bring more money a* resale or trade-in than any?  other make.

What  evea*  happens   on the*  council   is   our   responsibility  and there is no use screaming  at   any   decisions   or   actions  taken  by conimissiofiiiettl;) when  by your own indifference you  have   shown by your   silence  that you don't ca.re. There is  much work to bie dome, and it  is the duty of every citizen of  'the place to see that it is done.  If you   ar>e not   interested in  who  is in  there  or who  does  the work, how do you expect  them to carry on?  For the past niorn.th therei  has been no caretaker or  water maintenance man. Are  you aware of this staifce of  affairs?  If you iare inot satisfied with  the work of thet commissioners  then it is up to yo,u to demand  their resignation. By your  silence you approve.

MULCHES AND  WATERING  Thei current hot spell is affecting many shallow rooting  plants and the benefit of fairly  heavy mulch is. quite apparent.  For a. flower garden whena  neatness is important there is  nothing to be/at dried crushed  and siedved leaves; if inclined  to scatter juNnt weigh them  down with a little, fine' soil.  Watching the gradual restoration of a farm and garden on  ���a nearby island, wie have been  impressed by the speed by  which a beautiful top-soil is  being made by various forim-.  of mulching, without plowing  or digging. Compost, sawdust,  hay and weeds wer.ena.ll applied  on top with striking results.  We felt that similar methods  applied to the average garden  would he:.equally helpful.  Weltering, when possible, is  best done in early morning or  evening; a genefrous soaking  to one portion of the garden  rathetr than 'light sprinklings  will do more good. If there h  ia. mulch on part of the garden  a smaller proportion of the  water is lost by evaporation,  and the top-soil has >a/ chance  to retain its moisture longer.

S. Jackson  The news that a 1157 - year-  old Douglas Fir tree was felled  on Vancouver Island recently  calls for comment on the age of  trees around here. Thei Vancouver. Island giant rated a story  in the Vancouver press, but it  is only a' youngster compared  with ftomei of the Peninsula  giamits.  The fact that w'ej have growing trees three times that age  within 5 miles from Gibsons  (Post Office is quite well known.  We are referring to our so  called Yellow Cedar which is  true $y press (Chanpecypris  Nootkatensis). It was* not  umfusual to fell two or three  of these treefei in a week that  were ovleir 3000 years old. One  particular tree that was  checked for age by annular  rings was estimated at 3450  years old.  When this tree took root and  start/ed life as a sapling, the  Heroic Age in Greece was in  its prime.  This m fact , but we now go  on into surmise.  We can climb above; the  present,, stand of timber into  the fringe of the so-called  Alpinlei where weather extremes  govieirn the growth/Here we  find grass lands and scattered  thickets of hemlock and balsam  from 10 to 20 feet high, covered  with snow for fivia months.of  the year. Thjepe midgets are  150 years' old at least.  But, we also find scattered  here   and   therei   som'ei   bleak,  gaumit ghosts of the prehistoric  piast which defy all the elements  of   time  and decay.  On  close  examination wiej find these are  the same  Chanpecypris  Noot-  kateftisis, but all are vast hulks  of  trees  that  hav'e   remained  standing     gaunt    and    bare  because   they were seared   by  finei   or   lightning   and   were  cauterized   against all corruption:. It would be folly to hazard  any guess as to age for examination of the soil fails to reveal  amy trace of their original  accompanying forest.  It is probable that forests  have grown up and run thcar  allotted span in the eons of  time d u r i ng which these  skeletons have stood. They  could possibly have befcfn among  the firfc|t vielgetjation that followed the retreating ice cap  of 60,000 years ago. The hairy  mammoth and the sabre toothed  tig'er were probably roamers of  thief satme forest^'.  The wall of ice/ that receded1  across our mountain, tops must  have been very high according  to the heaps of rock and gravel  that wlere washed into pileg  ?bere and there by the melting  water. It is significant that  there ate no large' cypress  growing on these/ mounds.  To closely inspect these  viable spectres of'things past,  it may be sieien that there is  no rielason why they should not  Is.tand there foreyier. They are  more like stone than, wood on  the| outside. But, a nick with  an axe shows the yellow gleam  of cypress., the wood eternal.  Bulldozing  On a Budget  If you neleid bulldozing done  and canj-t afford the outlay,  don't let that deter you. Ed  Greiom of Roberts Creek, whose  advertisieiment appears elsewhere in this edition, has. put  in a budget plan for bulldozing.  "Many of the settlers around  here have sinaill iiircomies coming in iejaeh month," says he,  "and few have sufficient to  ha.ve a bulldozing job donej if  the bill has to be paid in a  lump sum." With the Ed  Green; plan, the job can be  paid in (easy monthly installments.  West Sechelt -���������*���  By MARGARET ALLAN  Visiting ?M?rs.\ P.

Most amateurs shy away  from might photography. Yet,  some scene�� which in daylight  are mere mundane record shot*/,  become masterpieces if shot at  night. A well lighted ship, for  example, whan: made fast to a.  wharf can make a beautiful  camera Isitudy with the soft  gHeiam of lights on the hull,  superstructure, and funnels,  and the soft reflections in the  water. The same picture, in  daylight, may be cluttered, up  with, a distracting background  of currogated iron wharves,  ugly buildings, -and derricks.  One does n,ot have.1 to have"  .an expensive camera, to take  night photographs. As ai master  of fact, it is always better to  use a Ismail aperture* and a  longer tinne*, than use a wide-  open lens and fast shutter.  Main trouble of course, with  night photography is that it  is always difficult to ascertain  correict exposure, and in this  regard a light miejter is of little  value.  With  a  camera  set at Fll,  laini (exposure  of 1 second  will  record lights of a .city on your  film. And this i& good enough  for   light-pattern,   shots.   But,  much   longer   exposure   is  required to  register   the   gleam  of the lights or thjei reflection  of th�� lights of the city. Try  one    exposure   at    1    miniute,  ���atnotWelr   at  2  minutes   and  a  third one at 3 minutes.  :-..������ JiLvthis connection it is .always..  ^est.l?t6.??ha3:ieivthe. bright lights;  shielded behind a  tree  or behind the  wall  of   a  building,  using the long exposure to register t\w\ full tonal namlge from  white   to  black,   with  all   the  intermediate tones, on the film.

Our Tea  A NOTE TO READERS  ABOUT SANDY LOAM  "Sandy Loam" whose column  "This Plot of Earth" is a regular  feature in our columns is a local  garden lover, living in Granthams  Landing. He pens his column each  week because he likes to talk about  gardens. And what he talks about  is timely, and slanted to this locale.  "Sandy Loam" has been a correspondent for several gardening  magazines. While on those former  jobs, he received" hundreds of let.  ters from his readers. Now, on his  little assignment for Coast News,  he finds he hasn't had one letter:  not one letter of appreciation or  condemnation.  If you like the column, if you  want it continued, please drop us1  a. line and tell us. If you don't like  the column, you can tell us, too.  "Sandy Loam" writes his column  for free. He likes doing it. But if  it isn't read ��� well he may as  well put in the extra hour weeding  the carrot patch. .,  Another way to catch a  young boy's fancy is to have  a  new  comic  book available.  :e at Fair  msasomsssm  The Hbwei Sound Fair committee1, has had word that Mrs.  W.

S. Jackson  The late Mr. Wilson would  be no doubt appalled by our  tea. The shadlei of the old  apples wafe studded with small  tablefsrand glory shone around.  The nicariiesfc of our Wilson  Creek, gals was ample repayment for thiei 35 cents we ex-  pendefd for the icy strawber-  rtejs, ice cream, etc. The Cha  or Oolong was nicely served.  One uncouth peirsoomge, however, asked if the tea had been  omitted from the pots, but it  seems from information we received that they like it weak  around these parts.  It is a moot point whether or  not a pot of coffee would not  be an asNuet at these gatherings at leant from aim aroma;  point of view. We feel sure  that some of the men customers would have been more at  home sipping a mug of coffee  in the woodshed.  It was a smart move to have  our tea at the home of Mr.  and Mrs. George Wright on  the barak of Mission Creek  where their friends could have  a few words with George, whq  has been unable to get around  like he us'ejd to.  The folkfci of Wilson Creek  have a keen, senile of community  spirit - and amy worthy cause  can be assured of their unfailing support.  So You Like  The Coast News!
