Serving the Sunny Sechelt Peninsula  Salmon Derby to  Award Rowboat  First Deepsea Ship  Loads At Port Mellon  X       History wais made alt Port Mellon this week c for Howe Sound  :? Pulp Company-when the big British freighter "?Royal Star"  nosed in to takiei on a cargo, of 1000 tons of Kraft. This shipment  is not the largest to leave the pulp mill wharf, but it ]{? the first  shipmenttol'eave directly aboard a deepsea ship. Other shipm/ents  'have.left by bargeto be loaded aboard freightersi in Vancouver  harbour.   ������ ���.        :    v;       v?  Winches of thebig 9118 ton  "Royal Star" arejrumbling.at?  Port  Mellon as ^ she  takes  on  1000 tons of Kraft ?pulp from  ... the Howe Sound:mill for. the  British   market.   This   is   the  first shipment of pulp to leave  the mil aboard a deepsea ship  since Howe Sound Pulp Company took over the mill.  V The big ship, with the blue  star sailed up the Sound from  '?". Vancouver a few days ago  v. under command of her master,  Capt. H.W. McNeill of London.  Her  crew  of  63  men  are  all  Britishers.  Although    Captain    McNeill  has seen a good many portfe-of  , the world, ihter told the  Coast  / News   that   he   likes   British  Columbia and thinks the province hab> a great future.  His  big vessel which was built in  Greenock in 1942! is a regular  visitor to this coast, and will  ?  load,   at   United   States   ports  bfcfore    standing    out,    with ������  hatclheJB battened, for her trip *  ? across the? Atlantic and home  ':��� to  England.  Has Busy Session  "Now,.'' __asked Norman  Sargent, "havefc we someone  else who'll volunteer to help  with the tickets ? Oh, yels, and  how about someone selling  candy?"  "We still need someone to  ssee' -that the- -entries atfe: all  listed," , remarked Mrs. Ler  Feuvre. "And now can we  check over our list of judges?"  "What about decorations?"  someone asked from the side1-.  i: lines.  v   "We'll let you handle that  job", Norman Sargent calmly  . turned towards the speaker.  ' 'Railroalder!" snorted isome-  one near me.  It: was the last-and the  busiest meeting of the Gibsons  Fall Fair committee. Your reporter went along to try to get  a story; but it was hardly possible. So much was going onfall at the same time, it seemed.  More business was done in two  hours than, some organizations  do in a season:  To your reporter it gave one  overall impression 1 the amount  of detail neeessary to stage a  well - run fall fair. Judges had  to be contacted; arrangements  had to he> made to pick them  '?up; and to feed them, while  they; were visiting here. That  wtals Irat one small job. "Someone had to list all the exhibits  as thiey came inc An?d then there  was the job of allocating prize  money. .  ' No small task any of this.  Anyway, it all boils down to  a good time and a goodvshow  when the ���?Fall Fair open��; in  Gibsons on Friday, August 15.  Schedule calls for- activity  Friday evening, all day Saturday from 10 a.m..,and a; big  3M Fair dance Saturday; even  ing the School Hall.  ��� Preparations have been corn-  pi eted for the first annual  Thne'fcHDa^ Salmon derby in  Gibsons, according to Cliff  Gray, committee chairman. The  derby will be held August 30,  31, and Sept.l.  ��� Several worth-while prizes  have been donated by Vancouver- wholesalers, and Gibsons  merchants have contributed in  the purchase, of other prizes  including a 12-foot rowboat for  first prize. Ten prizes will be  awarded. Every;fisherman with  a fish over fivie> pounds stands  a chance to wiii a prize.  Thier miajor prize will be won  by the spinning of a roulette  wheel. The fisherman having  a fish weighing nearest 'th��  number on the wheel will bier  the winner of the boot.  The derby will start at 5 a.m.  on   August. 30   and   will   be  rv   ^ by "Pintail"  '* ??rv^eo^eJ^Dai^  ing experts ?Pishiermen will  register at Snijttty's boat  rental and will weigh-in each  evening before 10 o'clock.  T��h(e apmuaT dance,' will be  held August* 30 in the? School  Hall with music by Benny  Stone and his orchestra. Sunday evening at 9 o'clock, Mrs.  Fisher of the Mariner .Cafe will  hold ar private dinner for the  fishermen. .On Monday, Labor  Day, the prizes will be awarded  on. the dock at 3 o'clock.  The board of trade committee,  headed by -Cliff Gray, ha*  worked hard to line up an outstanding program for theholi*  day weekend, and Gibsons is  looking for an influx of Isaac  Walton's to try for one of the  prizes.  More U  Here This Year  It is no doubt due to th'e  advance publicity circulated by  the Black Ball Ferries that we  have had such an influx of  Amefr-iciajn tourists this year,  says Jim Cooper of Ttedrobffs.  "Whatever thiei cause", they are  extremely welcome," he said.  Passing through the Red-  rooffs resort almost any day  one eiees cars from California,  Kansas, Oregon, Pennsylvania,  and other states.  Jim   Cooper   confirmed   the  fact that a super-duper chrome  and silver  trailer, -more like  a penthouse odi wheels, belonged  to a Dr. .Farrish who with his  wife and family tnatvelled this  way  from  Pennsylvania.  The resort owner tells us that  th'e fishing is excellent again  this year with the cohoe running  well  and averaging five  to f:plz  poundfe>  Tlie  "Stoker  Sailmon Derby Cup?'.' is again  on display in the store and will  go to the Walterian, who catches  the largest   salmW  of   the  season. |  Pender Harbor and Madeira  areas' report thati the cohoe  catch is good. > y. y  ver  Resuscitator Here,  Ready (or Emergency  Without fuss or ballyhoo, the Gibsons firemen announced'  Tuesday that the Rcsuscitaitor fund was over the/ top. The an-*  nouncement came aibout a month after the volunteer firemen  started on their campaign to raise' sufficient monhy to buy a  re^tuscitator and attachments.  Strike, Fire Law  Closes Port Mellon  Carpenters are picketing at  Port Mellon. A union launch  came in to the Howe Sound  Pulp mill on Tuesday, putting  pickets on the job, and union  officials declared construction  work at the mill "hot". The  B.C. Bridge and Dredging  Company Shad fremiti carrying  on until Tuesday, despite the  carpenter tie-up, by using steel  as a substitute for lumber in  scaffolding.  The Howe Sound Pulp Company hap. been shut down for  some weeks due to the shortage  of pulp chips1. About 110 men  of a total crew of about 200  are working on maintenance.  Due to the fire season restrictions, the road work has  been shut down.  '��!;���*  EGMONT SCHOOL  GROUNDS TO BE  CLEARED, LEVELLED  The school board this week  gave the green. light to clearing and lejveil'ling the school  grounds a\t ?Egmont. Job should  be finished by school opening  next month.  Committees reported good  progress is biedng made on the  painting of Gibson^ Elementary  School and that the playground  at Roberts Creek has been  smoothed and levelled and that  a fencfe will bisi put up immediately. *  Thejr also okayed the Kinsmen Club application to erect  vfie^isf wheals and. merrjy-'gor  rounds on school property for  the Fall Fair,   is  IN POLICE COURT  Sam Johnson, Sechelt Indian,  was sentenced to three months  for, assault and causing bodily  harm, and an additional month  for carrying a knife.  L.M. Dubois was fined $10  and costs for operating a taxi  without a' chauffeur licence.  Five hundred Sechelters were educated the entertaining way  on Sunday when'a group of members of the Royal Lifesaving  Society were in this1 town for a display. The methods of demonstrating water safety and lifesalving was done with plenty of  glamour and humour.  Despite the choppy waters,  the water ballet group of six  girls wiate very wlell received  as well as a water ballet solo  by curvaceous Tanya' Gordon.  MJal>:(ter  of   ceremonies and  announcer for the events was  .Jack Lugrin,  honorary  secretary of the Vancouver group.  Ted Gordon and Bob McKay  demonstated how to approach  a near-drowning swimmer, and  suggested carrying a stick out  towiajrds the frantic swimmer  so that he could grab 4the' stick  and not the rescuer.

The Sechelt Board of Trade  has decided to make the display  along with aquatic sports, an  annual event.  Following the demonstrations,  three car-owners took the  fifteen mieanbers of the troup  out for a tour of the. orea which  included a stop - over at the  home of Ralph McGregor,  West Sechelt, a stop at Porpoise  Bay, and a visit to Wonderland Camp or Girls at Wilson  Creek.

A resuscitator, sent up to  Gibsons for display purposes,  is ready for use should it he  required.  A substantial cheque, to bring  the fund near the top, wafe re-  ceivjed from the Gay Elliott  'Blue Baiby fund. Added to  that was the cheque due from  thei Ratepayers Association  from money collected by previous firje. brigades a;nd entrusted to them for safekeeping"  'rhese two cheques swept away'  the tag-ends of the campaign  to take the< fund well over the  top. i ���-#?  The dtaaice that was planned  as  ai  money'-raise^ has   also  been   cancelled.   The   concert,,  by. the  Salvation. Army band,  will go on as scheduled. Firemen will  turn  over   proceedfe  to the Salvation Army and to  the Kinsmen Playground Fund.  "We  of  course,  are  highly  elated that we now halve  the  rteisiusteitator,"    C h.i e f    John  Bunyan  told the Coast News.  ." The fact that we made our  ohjeeitivev sbi sooih .slibws the?  f inje cp-operative - spirit1- of the-'  people of the community. We  are doubly happy  to - see  the.  fund go over the top so soou  tais a resuscitator can be a godsend   to   our   district   in   thj&  eummertime in casie of a drowning accident." {  Most of the credit, however^,,  must go to the firemen them-  sielvesi.    The    Smokey    Stover"  Social  club  was  the   first  to��*  donate to the fund. Since that  time they  have  made  house-  to-house  calls  and  harve   constantly kept the nieed for the-  (apparatus before the public.  The firemen, are, indeed, to  be congratulated on the fin^-  effort they put fomvard. Despite the slow-down of ftuisinessv  due to th'e IWA strike they  kept plugging - and did a'  mighty fine job.

(L>ditorial5  Quo Vadis  The movie, Quo^,Vadis, which will show this week at the  Gibsons and the Sechelt theatre, depicts life in Rome when  civilization was on the ebb, when the populace screamed for  bread and circuses, and when Christians were thrown to the  lion* to satisfy the insane addiction of the populace' for excitement. ���  .Unfortunately, there is a striking parallel in these days of  our years. Not that we, of course, would throw anyone to hungry  lions or keep slaves or find pleasure in torture others. Civilization has taken us beyond that. But the same forces are. here today, pushing civilization ajs they were in. those days.  We still get pleasure, in 'seeing someone else suffer. It gives  us such a superior feeling. So we bawl out the bus driver or the  girl in the coffee shop or the careless pedestrian. Yes, we go  further than that. We wish them murder; even though to actually  murder is illegal.  We still have that feeling of not knowing where we are  going. .In the.days of Nero the call: was for 'Bread and Circuses.'  Today it is for Sunday entertainment, Bikini suits, and a car  that will accelerate to 110 m.p.h. in 11 seconds.  And, as a further parallel, we still have our Christians.  They are still a serious people ��� yet, they do know how to  smile. They are still persecuted ��� yes, even in Canada. .  In Quo Vaidis, the Christians amazed Nfero and his court  because of their deep-rooted peace of mind; and today, those  who are real ���believers in something higher-than and beyond the  pa'le of paper-mache backdrops and the sequins, the pomp and  the buffoonetry, are still amazing the world.  And yet, as did Rome, we look for the cure-all elsewhere.  e're yon walk  A few days ago we saw a man on the side of the road, squirting foliage with a spray gun. We passed by agains a few days  later, and there was- devastation there: dead leaves, and rusted  tin cans among the withered grass.  This week we saw another man. He was. scattering something  along the edge of the road.   .    ?  "What ere you doing?" we asked.  "I am slowing seeds!," he replied. "I always carry a pocketful and scatter them wherever I go-lupin, delphinium, cornflower.'I try to leave a little brightness along the way."  Reader's Ri  Editor, The Coast News,  Sir: ���     .

Fisheries  Had Best Year  The fisheries of British  Columbia in 1951 enjoyed the  greatest y!ear from a value-  of-product standpoint in their  long history, according to the  Federal Department of Fisheries.  The year's total dollar volume  reach ed $85,000,000, an increase  of $17,000,000 over the previous  year.  "The increase is almost  entirely accounted for by the  good salmon fishing and the  salmon pack being the best in  ten years," said G.W. Henderson, ' palcific district sialics  manager of the American Can  Company^ leading makers of  fish cans.  w*\i<" -rv*"  f ��3  is rm or ta  &v*  ~ By SANDY LOAM ���  GARDEN CLUBS  On    Tuesday    the     Gibsons  Garden. Club held its monthly  meeting in the Anglican Hall.  It took  the form of a Parlor  Show, with some very attractive   flowers,   with,   a   brief  address   on    giarden   matters.  Pianist   for   the   Club's   usual  display   at   the   Annual. Fall  Fair were dealt with,   and  in  spite  of the  small attendance  the affair was most enjoyable.  Our frielnd's across the border  have the Garden Club elevated  to a real power for good in the  community. The programs are  usually   keyed   to   beautifying  some  portion  of thee district,  and  results  are   usually   most  sati!-trying.   In  Fjm'allefrv  places  they    conduct    cleanup    campaigns ;   drive   to   keep   public  and private dumps hidden, and  disused ones covered with soil;  Landscaping    of     all     public  buildings,     ineluding     schools  and  churche^.  They  even  encourage   owners   of  prominent,  lots  to  landscape them;  even  at times adopting a lot as an  enterprize    for    their    junior  F.iection.  Many adulft.' cfyihs sponsor  a club for young folks of the  district, as. well, .as organizing  flower shows and other garden  events. A major project of the  Men's Garden Clubs of America  is testing mew plants in different parts of the country, and  over one hundred clubs share  in this useful work.  People have asked what good  a garden club could' be in  Gibsons! Just look around and  imagine what the odd hunred  eager clubbers COULD do!  How about joining, the local  .club? .'���    y  KRILIUM AND ITS PALS  ;Never before has a ?farm and  garden product had So vastahv"?  amount of publicity; certainly  no   product?-cbiild   claim   its  almost  magical  properties.  Wje have seen tlie material  in one of its many forms, but  have not tried it. We would  point out that its main virtue  is claimed to be its effect on  hard clay soils, and that bur  light soils need moisture holding humus rather than breaking it up;? also that there is.  no plant'nourishment in it;  it is just ??a soil conditioner.  Until we "have checked the -  special virtues of this remarkable chemical product, we shall  continue to' plug f^or peat moss  -expensive though it is in baled  form.

Back  in   the "thirties   when   traffic  along this road was negligible  compared with today's traffic,  this   road   was   oiled   on   the  section    between    the    Indian  Reserve    and    Soames    Point,  this section being almost solidly  built up. Following a petition  sent to the Minister of Public  Works in 1949 a contract was  let to double flush this section  iiif    1950.    Unfortunately    the  contractors did   not  arrive   at  Gibsons  until  too  late  in the  season  and   the  contract was  canceJkid,.  After  writing  tihe  Deputy   Minister,   I   was   advised  by   the   Chief  Engineer  in  May of  this year  that  it  might be possible' to give the  road a light coat of oil financed    out-   of    revenue    after  certain improvements had been  made. Towards the end of June  I was informed that only $15,  000 wials  avasliabife for these  improvement^   that  the  work  would be started from Williamson's   Landing   and    that   it  would be unlikely that the bulldozer   would   get   as   far   as  Soianies  Point.  As  the  clouds  of dust were upon us at Soames  Point, I telephoned thei Chief  Engineer and the Road Foreman and received their approval to treat 300 feet outside my  residence with Calcium Chloride.   Two   days   after   I   had  completed  this  treatment  the  grader came along and made a>  splendid job of covering it with  nice fresh dirt ?Then followed  the unkindest cut of all. After  the arrival of thei summer vilsdt-  Another  distinguished  product of  The BRITISH  COLUMBIA  DISTILLERY  Co. Ltd.  ��� ��� ���  RE  The British Columbia Distillery Co. Ltd.

Control Board or by the  Government of British Columbia.  ors early in July, down the  road camfc, the bulldozer  scraping down, the bank on the  higher side of the road and  filling in the lower, side followed by the grader to ensure that  the dry earth was thoroughly  pulverized into dust. Not satisfied with thei result, down  came the grader a few days  later to dig a shallow ditch  at one side of the road. Shortly  afterwards the bulldozer felt  a tinge of jealousy and took  a little more earth off the bank  and ."filled    the    ditch.    The  grader  ���of  stand this  terminedly  days  later  course,   could  not  treatment and de-  eanie along a few  and dug another  . ditch. Then the equipment left  for other and greener fields  and I discovered that the really  dangerous sections of this  road, the corner at 'Soames  Creek Bridge, the road through  Granthams. Village and the  corner at the top of Granthams  hill had not  been touched.  At weekrends, by a rough  . estimate1, there are approximately two- to three, hundred  oans and trucks pass the houses  on this section of .tihe road  daily and the resulting clouds  of dust have heen indescribable.  To my own knowledge some  summer visitors closed up their  cottages and went back to  Vancouver.  The rain last week came as  a blessed relief and by the end  of  the  week   thte  traffic   had  packed the clay in th,e> fill into  a fairly hard surface and the  residents  had  hopes  of   some  mitigation in the dust nuisance  during the month of August.  But wass our efficient Department of Public Works satisfied  with this condition? Decidedly  no. Although there was not  a. pot hole in sight between  Gibsons and Hopkins the grader  came along again* loosened the  packed dirt and pulverized it  into dry  dust.  With discontinuance of the  Union Steamship service and  the advent of the Black Ball  ferry the Granthialms and Hopkins districts 'arei now dependent entirely on road tranporta-  tion. The coastline between  Gibsons and Hopkins ha, some  of the fineist residential sites  in B.Ci. but 'the Department  of Public Works, through its  stupid .handling of the road  situation, is discouraging its  development either for summer  homes . or permanent population. Now we am<. faced with a1  further increase of traffic when  the Port Mellon road is opened  and, unless this road is improved and dust-proofed hi the.  thickly populated sections, the  futurei is grim indeed. Instead  of an influx of population we  shall have a large proportion  of the homes1 empty, as indeed  they are this summer.  T.

A205W-BC 4  The Coast News        Thursday August 7,  1952  Injuns Invade  Stratford Camp  Loudter than usual sounds of  amirfh emanated from Stratford  ���Camp two weeks ago when the  warriors a'nd maids of the tribe  enrjoyed a. potlatch. A vivid  campfire of logs and red paper  .made ample heat for the warm  evening and was set on the  badminton court with a blanket  -strewn net in the background  and the 'singing waters' creek  beside them.  The mighty warriors, resplendent in hand-made headdresses and masks, sat cross-  legged around the fire whilst  in the rear tihe doeilt women  ranged., with their papooses  strapped to their backs.  First on the program was a  three act play, written in verse,  locally, and presented 'pantomime style, with Chief Jtean  Dargie as narrator. In the final  act the maiden was won by  the daring brave and  carried  off to his camp. Here Counsel  ler'"Phyllis Ault left her station  abruptly to dash to the piano  and provide music for the  dance of the captured maiden,  one whose white name is  Dolores Newlin, who, apparently has danced all her short life.  Next the braves were handed  musical jimpUbments, and accompanied by Chief Dargie on  the piano gave some rhythm  band numbers. Following that  the group moved to the steps  of the building and settled  themselves for a. sing-song after  which they listened to words  of wisdom from Venerable  Grandmother, a tasty dish done  up in numterous shawls and  long  gray  blanket  braids.  Be'dtime candy came next  followed by the toothbrush  and bedtime prayers ritual and  braves and maidens bade goodnight to another day of camp  activities.

TAKE NOTICE  that Leslie Warren Swanson of  627 Forest Street, Bellingham,  Washington, occupation Comptrol.  ler, intends to apply for permission  to purchase the following described  Lands;  Commencing at a post planted  at the South East Corner of Lot  6213, Thence North to North East  Corner; Thence East 20 chains  more or less; Thence South 20  chains more or less; Thence West ���  20 chains more or less and contain,  ing 40 acres more or less.  Leslie Warren Swanson  Dated July 8. 1952  A tree farm sustained yield  program, as a practical step  towards good forest management iin B.C. was approved  recently at a general meeting,  of the< Truck Loggers' Association held in Vancouver, according to J.W. Baikie, president  of the association.  The tree farm idea gained  support because it was felt that  everyone in the industry, regardless of size, would have  the opportunity to participate  in the growing of tnees as a  crop. A tree farm would be a  permanent, yet transferable,  interest, thereby, assuring a  comstant realizable! asslet for  the ownier);i for their investment for their time, effort and  and money.  It is the hope of the Asso-  iiation that a large number of  people will become interested  in, the tree farm movement to  assure the ?future forests of the  province.  First treel farm eeirtificate  granted in B.C. went to T.G.  Wright of Vancouver who has  a small area of forest land on  Howe Sound a few miles north  of Gibsons.

In 1921 a leaderlesfc farm  group was elected in Alberta  and they remained in office  until 1935 when they were  defeated by tihe also untried  Social   Credit  government.  And in 1922 jon Manitoba  a leaderless, untried farm  group took office, chose Mr.  John Bracken as their leader,  and they have stayed in the  seat of the government ever  since.      ���������������'  One of the main difficulties  at pnesent facing Mr. Bennett  and his Social Credit government will be the finding of  seats for his Attorney - General  and his Minister of Finance.  Tihjefie men; wfcre not elected  to seats in the June election,  and they must, sooner or later  obtain seats. They will toatve  the very best of men from the  Progressive Conservatives, the  Liberals,? and the CCP stacked  up against them. And should  they be defeated in their trying for a seat, the Social  Credit government will be defeated.  Another of Mr. Bjenmett 's  d5ifif|i!cuataes| wEl probalbl^ be  that he will have to carry out  much of legislation through  order in council which is  another way of playing around  with? matches.  The hjew government has a  tough proposition to contend  with. Mr. Bennett has the problem that #1 minority govern-  . ments have to face; they remain  in office only with the consent  of some of the divided opposition. ���  We feel, however, : that  Progressive Conservatives and  the Liberals will vote with the  Woods Close While  Peninsula Swelters  All woods in the Vancouver  forest district, including Howiei  Sound and the Sechelt Peninsula have been closed since  midnight Tuesday.
