His  work bore fruit in the building  of the Bridge^ at Bella Coola,  whiph kept open the Timber  Industry there, where it seemed that all productive enterprise might otherwise have  come to a standstill.

Although   this   was   the   firsts  time  these   choirs had   entered^  the B.C. Festival, they compared  very  favorably  with  other  entrants in their class.

(  Methods of correcting this situation were given in a very  appealing manner to the children. "If you could achieve head-  tone" he said to the students-  "You could have some reallv  lovely singing."  It is hoped that next year, with:  the knowledge and experience-  gained from this year's participa-*  tion, the choirs should be able  to achieve a very creditable-,  standing next year.

Unexpected Benefits  / Last week,-this week and next, our Peninsula is being  treated to a concentrated period of entertainment, provided  by the contestants in the PTA Talent Nights.  Having followed these events in onercapacity or another,  and sometimes as an interested spectator, we have concluded  that there are more benefits accruing to the area than was  ���originally dreamed or intended by the original sponsors. Our  understanding of the amis of these contests is that they were  to discover, encourage, and promote the training and development of 'Talents' in entertainment, and to provide the audiences with pleasure and entertainment.  These aims are bemjg attained, and to a surprising degree.  we feelv ���-,'��'      -,   ���_.'���,  Other benefits, which might well be called 'by-products  of the effort are equally important, and all the better because  of their spontaneous occurrence. _  Audiences, because of their attendance at consecutive  Talent Nights, are becoming more conscious of the very real  talents possessed by many of our competing performers. They  should be, and we believe are, becoming more discriminating  in their appreciation of various types of entertainment. It  seems, too, that they are gradually realizing that'to be of  value ' a performance need not necessarily be of a classical  work^.and'atthe same time,.that the. 'Classical' works can also  be entertaining, can even be fun!       < - ���     ,      v  In other words, we believe that the training is of real and  lasting value to the audiences as well as to the performers.    _  Another benefit that evolves is; that of management and  executive experience for those to wbbse. lot, it falls, to. organize  and conduct^these: Talent Night programs^ These are very  arduous taskC and: those who do the-wo��niust heeds receive  some reward If no other; they are definitely gaining m experience! , .  Finally, we believe that the experience for sponsors, instructors and performers alike, will lead them on to greater  goals. Competitions of this nature should, we feel, unearth  ^talent in various lines that should be encouraged to go further.  Jf necessary the next step might be'Festivals.' #  We would like very much to see some type of scholarship  ���net up on the Peninsula soon, that might be the means of really  providing advanced training in some special line to one or more  iof our promising young artists each'year.  Have our adults advanced so far?  '����� who   believe    this    accusation/  Premier , Manning shall answer  for himself, the following is a  paragraph from his own reply  to my letter.  "Concerning the incident relating to the liquor question  which you mentioned, I can  asure you that the statement of  the person that I was a large  shareholder in the liquor industry is one hundred percent false.

A book arrived this week with
(the title 'How to increase plants'
and we found it both fascinating
and useful. Primroses are easily
divided in the . spring, and. one
choice plant may become a hundred in a few short years. If you
possess any primrose or polyanthus with extra good form
and color, do increase it, and
gradually do away with the
faded pink and dull red plants
that clutter so many gardens.
Nothing can beat the appeal of
the old-fashioned English prim-
irose, but to see it_at its best put
your spare plants in a woodsy
spot, where they can get the
shade they love and lots of good
leaf nipuld to> {thrive in.  /
The^polyanthus    or    bunch
flowered primrose is attracting
more  attention! than thfe older
forms   now;   and   the   modern
types' with good stems and large
flowers in the most wonderful
shade® are an annual joy. These
•are usually grown from expensive seed, and take a good deal
of care; in raising, hut the results
are well worth it.  Discard the
colors you don?t care for  but
wait, for their second blooming
before doing this.
(       Another favorite primrose is
the double kind;  the charming
mauve known as Quaker's Bonnet comes from the 18th century,
and  should be^ cherished as  a
garden/heirloom by sthe lucky
owner. /They like, a  rich open
soil   in|.whch:- compost  or   old
stable manure has been mixed,
and a'good mulch of soil and
shredded   leaves   around   them
after   planting,   and   will   then
•thrive  even   in   full   sun.   The
white,   purple   and   sulphur
doubles, are less available,  the
latter costing up to$3.00 a plant
when located,, -„
V!<%K areJstilL showing trie
odd bloom, and should be divided  each  year  or  two in  late^
spring. Like the primroses, these
love a semi-shaded spot, and like '
a   compost   rich   soil  and   leaf
r mould as a diet. Frequent division and-renewed soil will ensure
larger blooms and keep the plant
healthy. The better forms have
long stems and the same sweet
fragrance,  and   will  even  pro-  :
yide pin money for the grower /
who can get them to an early;
market. One elderly couple we
know  grow  them  under home
made cloches and cold frames
with great success. Violets like
a sweet soil, and crushed eggshells or lime in moderation help
a lot. -;■■-■■-■•■■■■ -:;-.;■-.;. •;■'■■■•■■ -

If inadverdantlyj  you  scorch
• your  husband's  best shirt,  rub
the    brown    spot   lightly    with
vinegar, then wipe with a clean
cloth. The scorch will disappear.
Before painting, give your
hands a coat of vaseline. After
you are through., simply wash
off the vaseline and the paint
stains will, come off with  it.
Always close the slide-fastener on a: garment before washing
or ironing. „
Cold tea poured over house
plants will prove very effective
as a fertilizer. .
A formula, for a cheap and
good putty: Mix equal parts of
finely ground whiting and of
white lead with enough linseed
oil to make a thick liquid. Ther
add whiting until the mixture
has the^de^iredrihickness.
Yoit canT prevent rain-soaked
shoes from getting stiff if you
apply saddle-soap while they are
still wet. Let them dry with the
soap still on them.      *
The best temperature all the
year through is a cool head and
a warm heart.

Thursday April 30,  -953  6 The Coast News  r���  By students of Elphinstone Junior-Senior High School  Editor in Chief: Celia Elumerfelt       News Editor: Donna Bingley  Social News Editor: Vera Bursey       Sports Edtior: B.J. Woods  t  by Eric Lindwall  Well it seems that the time  for indoor sports is over. Several  things prove this; the first of  which is accidents. All whiter  people kept breaking arms, riming into walls, skinning knees  falling on the gym floor and in  the great sport of tag, tumbling  down the stairs.  Now that outdoor sports have  come into vogue, the type of  injury is different. There have;:  been broken toes resulting from  kicking rocks, broken fingers  from rather unexpected contact  with a "soft ball and of course,  the old stand-by, s p r a i n e d  etnkles;the result of over-enthusiastic participation in softball  when the ground is coated with  several inches of slippery mud.  The change in the type of  Clothing, (and the condition���  as I said before, it's muddy,) is  quite evident, too. The more  bptomistic students dressed in  lighter clothes and carrying t a  new set of "cleats" or "spikes"  over their shoulder. What if it  is raining��� it's the end of April  and softball HAS to start'sometime.  But then why should I talk?  I'm just as optomistic as the rest.  The Sports Beat  *        by Roy Duncan  Last Friday  saw  the  last  glimpse   of   basketball   around  Elphinstone    for    1953.    House  playoff   began   on   Wednesday  with the junior boys and girls  playing off that day.  House. B,  junior girls decisioned House C  (to  take  the  Junior Girls  title. '  House A brought up the rear.  In the junior boys game between A and B it was a different  story. The two teams were tied  at the end of regulation time  and were still deadlocked after  five minutes of overtime. The  game was postponed until the  next day when House B won the  Junior Boys title. C finished in  the cellor.  On Thursday House B. finished off the season in grand form  polishing off House A 25���13 to  take the Senior Boys title. Again  House C ended up in the base-  , Rient.  After Friday's games the basketballs were all deflated and  packed away in mothballs with  all the other indoor equipment  tor the year and the softball  paraphernalia was given out.  P.E. classes were turned into  half decent shape for House  competition which started Monday. Houses A and B officially  Opened softball on Wednesday.  A took a close 6���4 win. On  Friday House C came from behind to eke out a3���2 over  House B. House B senior girls  edged House C 5���4. House A  junior boys romped to a 19���3  Win over House B. House C  junior girls beat House A on  Tuesday.  .House B junior girls smeared  House A bf a 16���11 score.  With the announcement that  the school sports day will take  place' the day before Coronation  Day. June 1st, many track enthusiasts are getting in top condition for the bis event.  The rumour is going around  that a school softball team will  be formed to play other schools  ladmmion  rnamen  A team of six players from  Elphinstones Badminton , club  were sent to town during the  Easter holidays to represent the  school at the B.C. Junior Tournament. The proceeds from various  projects of the club were used  for travelling expenses. The Vancouver Lawn Tennins and Bad-  ; minton Club was used for the  tournament on the 8th, 9th and  10th. The games began early in  the morning and went until 5:30  at night.   ' ^ ���  The games were run quite a  bit differently to what our team  was used to,' even _so they had  many good games. The team  managed to get as far as the  semi-finals. .-.,-     \  We had no winners but our  players stood up well to the  more trained and experienced  opponents from all over B.C.  The 300 entrants came from  Fort St. James, Vernon, Cran-  brook, Victoria, Vancouver and  of course Gibsons. We have  hopes that next year with more  knowledge etc. we will be able  to have some Elphinstone entrants as winners.  Pat Peterson.  and teams. I sure hope this goes  further than the rumour stage,  because the school" has a potentially strong team.  It seems a shame that basketball is the only sport that  Elphinstone sends teams into  interschool competition when  good .' teams inV /other4.sportsv  could, be fielded;  The -word is also going around  that   a   Peninsula   League   will  be>;formed this season involving  a   couple* of /.teams',   from   Port';.  Mellon,   Gibsonjs -.arid   Sechelt.  This also would be a step in the  right direction because it would  be the first time the Peninsula  had been formed' into* a  body  in any sport.  Last year Sechelt formed a  local league which proved very  successful. One /of the main  reasons "the league faired Jso  well was that it had good support from the local people. So  if this league does materialize  how aboutrgoing out and taking  in the ball games. Even though  you donlt know anything about  softball its easy to learn.  B. W. M.

At times most of us have looked at purse, wallet or bank-book, and  wondered: "Where does the money go?"  Each year we at Imperial add up the company's bills to see what  happened to the money we received in the previous 12 months for the  gasoline, fuel oil and other products we sell. Here's where each dollar  of Imperial's 1952 income went:  CRUDE OIL and other raw materials we bought, plus freight, took  more than half of each dollar.  OPERATING expenses took more than 28 cents. This was the cost of  searching for and producing crude oil, and of manufacturing and  marketing the hundreds of products we supplied for thousands of uses.  Throughout the year high quality products were made available where  and when you needed them.  TAXES to provincial and federal governments took 10 cents. And this  did not include gasoline tax, which���depending on where you live���  took from 24 to 36 cents out of every dollar you spent for standard  grade gasoline.  DIVIDENDS paid to shareholders for use of plants and equipment  amounted to 4.06 cents.  TO REPLACE worn out equipment and to make sure that we can  3.42 cents       supply your needs in the future 3.42 cents was put back into the business.  cents  00 cents  cents  tr      iMPfmfti      ���>  ���sso  IMP-RIAL OIL LIMITED  oil  makes a country strong  Tins advertisement is not published or displayed by the Liquor  Control Board or by the Government of British Columbia  t' ft Viiiihn-l-i��i-Ti-i 8  The Coast News Thursday April 30, 1953  our Year  steals renoer bum  On April 24th, the Hall at  Madeira Park was packed to  capacity as the people of the  district gathered to hear the  contestants in the Primary Competition of the regional P-TA  Talent Night.  Children from four years of  age to eighteen, and representatives of the adult classes also  competed. v  While the contestants limited  themselves in the main to vocal  fud piano work, several of the  performances were judged noteworthy. Students placed well up  In their respective groups.  The panel of judges from  Roberts Creek were Mrs. -Vr  Beeves, Miss M. Maclntyre and  Mrs D. Wortman, the former two  having taken the places of Mrs.  Kennedy ��nd Mrs. Gs��Hfo>rd,  Who were unable to attend.  Winners in the  adult group-  Were Mrs. Sladey, for her song,  ���'Songs My Mother Taught Me,"  $nd   Mrs.   Haddock   with   her  piano   arrangement  of  "Danny  Boy". " ���'"���������'���'��� '.-  In the fifteen to eighteen class,  there was only one contestant,  Poiores Brown, with a Vocal  Solo "Harbour Lights." Whil*>  Polores had shown the results of  / considerable practice, she was  not awarded a sufficient score  to enter the finals.  In the eleven to fourteen class?  of instrumentalists, certificates  were awarded to Joan Nicol, a  self-taught little pianist whom  the judges stated to be possessed  of a remarkable talent, and  Margaret 3leid, whose playing  of the "Blue Danube" netted a  firm second.  In the Vocal section of this  *ge group, second place went to  Patsy Reiter and Dorothy Greg-  erson for their duet, an unusual  arrangement of "Flow  Gently,  Sweet Afton", while the standing for the  Finals  competition  went  without   reserve   to   Fay  Cherry for her performance of  "June   is   in   My   Heart".   The  . Judges commented on the sweet  true   voice   and  pleasant  stage  presence of this performer.  In the/ seven to ten group,  entries were few, and t awards  given to just one first and. one  second. These were handily  taken by Richard Daly, whose  recitation "And So Was I!" got  9. warm reception, and Alice  Phillips a close second with her  vocal solo, "Whither Away.";,  It was little Patsy Slady who  really brought the house down.  Seeming completely self-possessed, and with every appearance  of a seasoned performer, Patsy  Bang with delightful naturalness  her solo "Oh, Dear, What Can  the matter Be?"  The audience rocked. It was  not until after the entire performance that her mother confessed that Patsy had oeen so  gtirred as to be "sick all over".  The entire evening was successfully handled by the Committee  ���and the able M.C., Mr. Jim  Marsh. Intervals while the  judges   'were   conferring   were  filled by the audience in community singing, and Mrs. Haddock entertaining at the piano.
