Particularly resentel was  Mr> Sinclair's, attitude on the basic rate of war veteran's allowances being equal to old age pensions. (Mr. Sinclair had  said- ".WVA. should be AT-LEAST equal to OAP.")

Tanks  were filled last week, ready  for distribution of the petroleum products. Reg {Godfrey,  well-known around Gibsons, is  the agent.  The company will sell fuel  oil and gas on a wholesale basis  at the present time-., ffhere are  no Imperial Oil service"^ta,tions  operating on the Peninsula.  The Hopkins Landing site  was chosen because? the company felt that with the opening  of the Port Mellon ��� road the  Hopkins Landing area was  bound to become an important  centre along the route. It is  anticipated that matpy of the  -. employees of the pulp mill will  live in Hopkins Landing and  will commute each day to work.  "Some people have? been told  that we chose the site because  the Bla?ck Ball Ferries are  going to move their terminus  to Hopkins Landing, but  nothing could be further from  . the truth," Mr. Godfrey se.id.

Canada Savings BoniJs on Sale  At, Your Neighbourhood B of M  (L^ditoriaU  Courtesy on the seaways  Although action wan taken: late in the season, we register  our commendation of Magistrate Len Hambly of Pender Harbour  for having fined three yachtsmen for speeding in the Harbour-  The motorist has. to keep his eyes on the road, his speed down,  his mind alert and sober; while, in the past, too many boat owners  have been allowed to race arouaid among small boats, without  the lea'st idea of where they are going or what they are doing.  The three yachtsmen who. were fined will know now that the  wake of their ships can swamp, small bo&ts, a'nd can damage boats  at anchor and at the wharvei*. It is unfortunate that all those  guilty of the same misdemeanor could not have stood trial with  them.  The main street of Pender Habour,. and, in fact, of the  entire Sunshine Coast, is a waterway. Those who drive their  water craft along this main artery nhould do so with the same  care and good sense as is expected of one driving down the  main street of a city.  J\UaUGl J .-IVI^-.. FOR ONLY.

May I be permitted to make - fund for the future, despite the high cost of living that makesZ  saving seem ^difficult if not-well nigh impossible," says Tom <  Larson, Gibsons, Sechelt, and Port Mellon manager of the bank  of Montreal*  In a conversation last Monday on the subject of building  financial security, Mr. Larson pointed out that the first requirement for saving money was to "go into debt to yourself. Set  yourself a definite amount���no matter how small it may seem-"  J'One of the surest ways of aocomplishihg this is to pur-  chale one or more. Canada Savings Bonds. Chcose the amount  you feel you can best handle on your income over a year���$50,  $100, $500, $1,000 or $5,000-^and sign the application-"  "Bonds can be bought on the instalment plan for only five  per cent down. For example, with only $2.50 downyoucan make  the initial payment on a $50 bond. On a $100 bond the down-  payment is $5. The remaining instalments can be made on an  easy regular basis over the following 12 months.  An important feature of the 1952 Bond issue is the increased  rate of interest. Each bond bears 10 coupons at the rate of 3.75/  per cent. The first coupon covers a period of 21 months (equal;  to 2-14* per cent per annum), due August 1, 1954* Prom then on;\  one coupon at 3.75 per cent is payable annually on August 1, j  until 1963.>This replaces the 1951 rate of 3*5 per cent and amounts^  to 3.44 per cent per annum over the life of the bond, comparedi  k noli1 to Politicians  }Ve feel it is most unfortunate���for the political parties  themselves���that all four political parties Ciould ell make  their headquarters in Powell River and Westview-.

Nevertheless, we have a population equal to that of the Powell  ?River area; we have the voters-  When the new ferry link is in operation next year, the Sunshine Coast will be the more accessible centre for meetmgs, and  it. will surely surpass the Powell River area in population, if it  lias not already done so.  We don't ask that the headquarters should be changed to  the Secihclt Peninsula. But we do feel that if the candidates are  to be Powell River men, then the presidents of the ridings should,  be Sechelt Peninsula' men.

It  is  true  that  the  committee   did  very  little  in  connection  with  our  requests,  but their attitude was not unfriendly-   I   did   say  however,  that '"the Prime Minister and  his  Cabinet   gave  the Legion  committee a very cold reception two years a'go" no doubt  due to the fact that the government at that time did not agree  with  our requests. The situation changed, in part, a year  later.  I ought not to have interrupted JVIr. Sinclair during his  remarks, but I must say that  I was rather amazed to note  oujr M.P's apparent sudden  change of front in connection  with the Legion's request for  sixty dollars a' month per  person for recipients of war  veterans allowance, the. present  rate being fifty dollars, with  usual means test.  Just how a man, or woman,  veteran or other, on a war  veterans allowance, or old age  pension of fifty dollars per  month, can exist, far less.live,  on one dollar and sixty five  cents per day, I will leave. Mr.  Sinclair to explain-  Even at sixty: dollars per  month, the amount" would be  small enough," for a bare exist- ,  ance ahl no more.  Mir- Sinclair now takes the  stapdj '.{that  fcvar 'V e t e r a n s  allowance should at least equal,  the  -otfd   age   pension  ^te^'ofiv  fifty dollars which is now ? the  amount paid in B.C.

In so,vfar as present rates  aire coinicerriied this particular  group, .unable to accept? part  ^time employment, only receive  fifty a month, and ninety if  married,,- basic rate of war  .veterans? allowance.

May  we suggest that your Fall compost be spread aroaind your  permanent plantings, whether  perennials, shrubs, small fruits  or dwarf fruit trees. Then put  over it a- one or two inch mulch  of crushed leaves, clippings  or chopped bracken. This will  ensure tlie full value of the  coinpost being Utili >ed, also  feeding the earthworms . and  bacterki in it- Peonies especially  enjoy this, treatment.  New divisions of .plants,-also  rooted cuttings will benefit by  the use of a! small spadeful of  compost close to their roots  Avhen put in their permament  homes, and if you plant your  bulbs with a trowel, make the  hole deep enough for a good  handful of compost under each-  We usually put a little sand  or leaf mould directly under  the bulb.  May we "lay a ghost" about  the use of bracken in the Fall?  Serious gardeniero often tell us  that bracken is no good after  the leaves stop curing. While  jjt is better used in the spring,  it is good either a�� a mulch or  '���"On. ?the .'compost- heap at a<n.y  time. Nature lets it get brown  and die down before turning  it into soil, and bna.cken mould  is good for that without" doubt.

On the ?Penin-  sula these are best planted in  November, .getting inir some  good root ^growth by Spring.  Some may bear fruit next  summer, but the accepted  practice is to remove the blossoms for the first year.  Dwarf apples and pears are  ^available in rpveral varieties  suited to the Coast, and with  a minimum of care they should  give you a treat of larger than  average fruit for years to come-  Two of our trees, put in last  year and not much bigger than  current bushes,-bore around  100 apples each -thinned out  to about three dozen per tree.
