C., for the crossing to  Nanaimo carried 23 Girl Scouts from Burbank, California,  who were on a chartered trip up the West Coast. Black Ball  Line, Ltd.'s new ferry service between the British Columbia  mainland arid Vancouver Island was a scenic feature of the Girl  Scouts' trip. Girls and their chape rone camped out nights in  regulation Girl Scout fashion during the two-week trip. After  sight-seeing at Nanaimo and Victoria, the chartered Greyhound  bus, driven by C. G. Dietrick of Burbank, crossed from Victoria  to Port Angeles on the Black Ball Line flagship Chinook. From  the Olympic Peninsula, girls took the coast route through Washington, Oregon and California. They Girl Scout charter boarded  the luxurious Kahloke Sunday, June 28, for the fast crossing  to Nanaimo. This is the first time that buses can make the  complete Evergreen Circle trip including both salt-water crossings on a regularly scheduled ferry service.  ������      ������*���*'  At the-regular meeting or* the,- Board of Commissioners on  Tuesday last, a grant of $250.00 to the Public Library Association  of Gibsons was approved. y  The application for Water  Service by  Mr.   Ed.   Feidler  of  ; Fairways Service Station was not approved.  A letter from the City of Ver- ; _ _  non was read,/tasking that the  U.B.C.M. approach the Provincial Government for legislature  to be introduced to have water  services by municipalities in  unorganized territories removed  from any jurisdiction by the  Public Utilities Commission.  This letter -was endorsed by the;  Gibsons Board.  The clerk was instructed toad vise the builder in the Head-  (landls }area hvho has violated  both the Building and zoning  by-la wis ithat he has ten days in  which to conform, to the regulations. Prosecution is to . be  commenced should 'this hot be  idone.  Mr. Schutz reports that the  new pump has been operating  (successfully when used do help  conserve  the   gravity  supply.  The Municipality has "been  successful in obtaining some disused floats for replacement parts  of the Municipal float.

A building permit for a duplex dwelling in the Headlands  area was approved.  Mid-Pen Supports  Injured Player  On Sunday, July 5th, young  Ford Flumerfelt, while sliding  for second in a "ball game at the  Sechelt School Grounds, broke  his /leg.fc      ' '  .Since Ford will now be unable  to work for six weeks, and the  injury was received while playing _a game, the League has decided to see that lie will not lose  out too greatly financially because of this.  Weekly collections are being  taken up, contributions have been  made by the League, and the  latest idea is to hold a benefit  dance for Ford.  B. C. 'Mickey' Coe is in charge  of the arrangements for this, and  date, place and time will be announced  shortly.  This is the kind of "rallying  round" that shows true sportsmanship among the players.  SELMA Vs. FIREMEN  The ball game last Thursday  between Selma Park and Sechelt Firemen . featured four  homers by the Selma Boys, two  by Dick Gray, one each for Jack  Nestman and  Bernie Heskkins.

Rod And Gun Stub *  The Peninsula Rod and Gun  Club, recently organized in Se-  schelt, is opening its season's  activities with a fishing derby to  be held starting on the 19 th of  July.  The club hopes to have a large  membership all oyer the Peninsula, and membership tickets are  available at a number of business  places along the district.  For this first Derby, weighing  in stations are at Vic's Trading  Post at . Davis, Bay, and at the  Sechelt Tea Rooms at Sechelt.  They are offering three really  valuable prizes, first a fisherman's dream���a glass fishing rod  and reel; second, a fine reel; and  third a nylon line.  It is expected shortly to present a complete resume of the  aims and purposes of this Rod  and Gun Club. The Coast News  congratulates these people upon  their idea, and their putting it  into immediate practice.  BOUNDARIES EXTENDED  FOR DERBY  The ��� Peninsula Rod and Gun  Club has announced that the  boundaries in the coming Fishing  Derby are extended to include a  part of Porpoise Bay. A- lints  "drawn from Four-Mile Point to  Peiper Point will be the limit or  the fishing area there.  Since no weighing-in station  has been established at that point,  fishermen are advised to weigh  in. at the Sechelt Tea Rooms,  where a weighing-in station has  been arranged.  Jimmie Sinclair To  SPEAK ON PENINSULA  The Hon.

Phone Gibsons 45W  80s 6, Gibsons. British Columbia,  ���l  ilonau  This summer bears out an old contention of ours, regarding the Peninsula, and its many component parts,  whether it should grow up and learn to act as a whole, or  whether it should continue to act as many little units, each  jealously clinging to its own individuality in everything,  afraid of losing its identity. '  We contend that the Peninsula, composed of these many  segments, could act as a whole with much more weight and  authority than in its' present divided state.  That a central. Board, or Chamber, representing the  three local Boards of Trade, would have more-weight than  each or all of the small hnits, goes without saying. Once,  we understand, there was a Board common to the Peninsula.*  Various enterprises, such as the May Day Activities,  would really be wonderful affairs, if they could be the united  product of the ability and organization of the whole area.  Dominion Day celebrations, fishing��derbies, regattas, and all  the various season's affairs could be held, some at one spot,  some at another, according to the peculiar advantages of  each, and thus each area benefit from the combined efforts  ��f all.  Sports, such as bowling, tennis, baseball, etc., should  naturally have their own local grounds, but it would add  greatly to the festive air if these could be regularly held  in play-off at one recognized center.  Gradually the facilities -would be enlarged, and - might  in time include other and more varied sports, such as curling, ski-ing, lacrosse, boat racing, soap-box racing, and any  number of others.  If this program would be beneficial in play, it should  also be so in business, which is said (to bring revenue to an  area, the whole Peninsula, acting together should be able  to do much more than any group of small spots. In this, they  would maintain their own characteristics, each as a distinct  pant of the Peninsula's general attractiveness.  Peninsula Loggers, Peninsula Fishermen, Peninsula  Merchants and Peninsula Services, as well as Tourist Associations, could form units of considerable strength, even  it mainly for their own benefit. The good would soon begin  to spill over and benefit the man in the street.  Peninsula fruit and vegeittable growers, Peninsula dairymen, what do you think of this idea? If it is a pipe we  would be happy to be shown, but we will take a great deal  of convincing. .

Liquor  Control Board or by the Government of British Columbia.  Editor, The Coast News,  Madam:  Sport?  Fishing.  The annual slaughter of the  innocents will 'be in full swing  shortly. It is worthy of comment  here, that all the efforts and  they are many, have failed to  prevent the decimation of the  Spring and Cohoe salmon. Protests and law are unavailing.  The salmon derbies and ballyhoo must go on, The advertising  portrayal and the outrageous;  betrayal of-that highly overated  fish the steelhead is too appar*  ent for comment.  One more  decade  and  these  poseura, the rod fishermen, will-  have   grassed    (sic)   their   last  fish,   that  &?,   unless   they   go  farther afield. When a man as  an angler gets so far down that  the   spawn   of   the   first   fish  caught is  far  enough  matured  that  it can  be  used  as a lure  for the next one there is only  one answer ��� Extinction. The  writer's   experience   with   fish  goes back a long way, such as,  first    power . trolling,    netting  steelhead in the Coquitlam 1909  Rod   fishing   Cheakamus    1911  and so on.  Salmon Rock,  Gibsons, is an  outstanding example of decline  in  salmon  population  and  this  is fresh in the minds of scores  of people living here now. I am.  on    safe   ground   here    and   I  would  like to   relate   some   of  the  things that I knew of and  took  part in.  As a  fish  buyer  and fisherman I protested then  against this wholesale slaughter  but it came to naught. Just like  the Buffalo, the main herd was  always  only Over the hill. The  same   morality   applied   to   the  fish.   It was   a  waste   of  time  telling of the eventual end. Like  the Forests, the fish too had no  end.  In 1913 I well remember dragging a 'dinghy ashore in English  Bay across the carcasses of dead  sockeye salmon . in countless  thousands.  To get back to Salmon Rock,  the endless and often futile parading around the rock with the  put-put is small satisfaction to  us, now in the "I knew it when  class".  Some of the ghouls and ray-  ishers, the 5 and 6 inchers, that  actually kept tally on a full  seasons holiday fishing (that is  the school holiday) must if tKcy  have any decency left keep  quiet now. The good souls with  families that fished all day,  that hulk t of a man (sic) from  Granthams that made a.business  of selling his catch, they are all  in this parade of despoilers.  They can say they didn't know,  but later years . when a legal  limit was suggested the same  devastation went on.;  These so called sea trout are  the new crop and in this stage  are particularly voracious and  the' only way to keep them off  the hook is to quit fishing. The  few who used some discretion  were so few it did not matter.  When jars had to be filled and  canning to take; care of the  catch, why stop? If there could  have been some way of just  taking the mature fish, the carnage would not have been so  terrible.     V  * This holocaust for the fish  started a;t Powell River and  every holiday resort from thexe  on to the U.S. border that haoV  a rowboat was out taking their  toll. Add to this slaughter the  East Coast of Vancouver Island  where grilse sounds more polite and less rnurderous.  No law can control this wa^  ton extinguishment for one  simple reason. Unenforceable  law is no law. It can an'd will  be argued by the wastrels that  the East Atlantic coast and  certain areas in Europe have  survived. All right, so they  have, but see how soon the law  takes charge there when it sees  anything amiss.  The furore over dams and  hydro blockades loses a. lot of  its force when you .see this  vast destructive rodeo that has  accounted in the main for the  depletion of our sporting salmon  runs. The sockeye, humpback  .and! dog may survive on account  cf their different habits but t(h^  spring cohoe and steelhead _are  doomed, let there be no mistake  about that.  L. S. J.  Editor, The Coast News,  Madam:  re War Veterans Allowance  We in the Canadian Legion  are being constantly urged' to  try and obtain some definite  improvement in the matter of  a better deal for recipients of  war veterans allowances, pair-  iticuliarly in view of the sustained high cost of living.  May I say that the Canadian,  Legion has done everything  possible to have the Liberal  Government act in the matter,  but our representations have  been ignored to date.  On May 11th when I was in  Ottawa, attending a meeting of  our Sub Executive Council of  the Legion, we made a ;last  minute appeal to the Prime  Minister to take action immediately, before the House of  Commons adjourned, iri the  matter of increaing the basic!  rate of war veterans allowance  and improving the amount of  permissible, ihconie etc. On the  afternoon of the same day, the  Minister , of Veterans Affairs,  speaking oh behalf of ^ the Liberal Government refused action.  AH opposition parties in the  House of Commons have consistently supported the Legions  views on  this matter.  During -the- debate- in- the  dying days of the last session  of the federal legislature, 1 Liberal, 10 Progressive Conservatives, 7 CCF. and 3 Social  Credit members urged immediate action on the Legion's re-*  quests. Speakers from B. C  were- Howard Green, George  Crufickshiank, O.L. Jones, and  H.W. Herridge. The government  refused action.  No other conclusion can be  arrived at, but that the present  Liberal government is unfriedly  to . veterans, in so far. as the  recipients of war veterans allowances may be concerned, of  which we have 27 percent in  British Columbia.

"I'm sorry I am late," Isobel  Angus, the VON nurse said as  she pulled into the yard. The  Doctor had called advising her  of extra visits, which she had  made on her way over, and the  delay had made her. an hour  and a half late getting started  on her daily rounds.  I elimbed into the sturdy  little Austin and we were off.  Her ifrrst visit took us away  from the newly tarred highway  and onto a narrow, dusty lane  over which we bounced and  lurched crazily, finally to stop  before (patient no. Vs house.  He rushed out to announce jubilantly that he would not need  the injection that day, that the  Doctor had decreed one a week  to be sufficient.  "Alright", the nurse said  cheerfully. "See you Thursday."

Then "I have the advantage over you," she yelled. "I  have the wheel to keep me in  the car. Hang on, we're nearly  there."  While? she went into the  house of Patient no. 2 to administer the injection, I remained in the car and got my  breath again. How, I pondered  would this bedridden patient  manage the bi-weekly injections  were it not for the VON? The  cost of Doctor's visits would be  pretty steep, and to take a sick  man over this road would  surely kill him. I was slightly  sea-sick myself.  In 15 minutes the nurse was  back, and, with as determined  hand upon the wheel, held the1,  little car on its course while  retracing our path to the highway. The durability of any car  that could (travel _hich roads  daily deserved a testimonial  land we toyed with the idea,  of sending one in to the Austin  dealers. For that matter, the  nurse must have been fashioned  of durable material too.  Our next call was tlie office,  to see if any new cases had  come in. This took but a minute  and we.were again on our way.  Miss Angus' piext patient required nursing* care, physiotherapy and dietary advice and  took an hour and a quarter, a  service which costs somebody  $2.00 a visit. Either the patient  pays it, or the. DVA pays-it, or,  rather gives the service free of  charge or for the sum the patient is able to pa.y. In any case  the patient gets a great deal  for a relatively small sum of  money. For 'a visit to give an  injection, the charge is $1.25  Prenatal calls are free as are  the baby Weighing visits until  the baby is 6 weeks old.  And that's how we spent the  rest of the day,  after taking a  quick lunch at a cafe. Weighing  babies.  I went into  one house  with  the nurse,' and *so   proud  and happy was the hew mother  that she did not seem to resent  my   presence   there.   The   baby  had  gained,   he  was  well,  had  a good appetite, and everybody  was   happy.    What   a   boon    I  thought, was the attendance of.  this serene, capable and friendly  young  nurse.   True,  the  babies  would   probably   gain   and   be  healthy without being' weighed,  but  the  knowledge  that  all  is  definitely well means a lot to  mothers,   especially  those  with  first babies. And there; are many  cases   where   the   infant   finds  trouble   in   getting   ;a'formula  to    suit   hUm    and    (there   'the  nurse's experience and training  come to his assistance:  We   traversed   side   roads   I  did not know existed,  and we  did it most carefully, for sometime during the "afternoon, the  car brakes went A.W.L. and we  went plunging down a hill,  hanging onto our hats and wishing we had put our affairs in  better order. For some reason  we didn't pile tup against a  fence, but the incident did cut  our calls short as we had to by  pass two patients whose homes  were! at the foot of steepish  hills.  The nurse was still cheerful  and fresh as a daisy when she  let me'off at my home. Another  work day was ended, unless of  course, a baby decided to be  bom during the night, or some  other emergency occurred to  break her rest. It is not difficult to understand why pedestrians, young and old, hailed  her or came to the door to chat  a moment, and car truck drivers  all along the road waved, smiled  and iionked at her. She is the  very good friend of all of us  here on the Peninsula and we  may go about our business with  assurance, secure in the knowledge that, if we call, she will *  come. A friend in need is a  friend indeed. I hope she got  those brakes fixed.  Gibsons Gun Club  Receive Trophy  C.P.

Peninsula Teacher  Passes  The death on July 8, after  a. major operation, is reported  of Miss Elsie Turner, a former  teacher in Sechelt School district. Miss Turner had been in  ill health for three years, and  <is survived by her parents, Mr.  and Mrs. Fred Turner of  Wilkie, Saskatchewan, also two  brothers and a sister in that  province. Her former pupils'  and their parents will remember  her when she taught at Irvine's  Landing School during 1945  ���and 1946. Miss Turner taught  in the Sechelt School from  ^September 1947 to . December  1950.  Miss Turner was one of the  old-time well-loved school teachers who was not overcome by  a room full of children in all  eight grade's, and the affectionate regard which is felt for her  everywhere is indicative of the  real influence she had on her  community.

She is the mother of  five small children, and another  baby  is expected shortly.  This young woman will receive to sustain herself and the  five small ones, thirty-five dollars  a  month.

Last week we had occasion to  write to Mr. R. S. Weston of the  B.C. Power Commission, inquiring whether information were  available regarding proposed extension of Power Service North  and West of Sechelt.  In reply, Mr. Weston sent us  the following copy of a letter sent  (to the Board of Trade at Pender  Harbour, which we are, pleased  to present here:  Victoria,  B.C.,  ���      July 3, 1953.  Mr. Edward E. Garvey, sec'y.,  Pender Harbour Board of Trade,  Pender Harbour, B.C.  'Dear Mr. Garvey:  I have been advised verbally  by the Deputy Minister of Public  Works that the Department is  going to clear the right-of-way  to the Halfmoon Bay Cut-off, but  not build the road. This would  permit our constructing the main  feeder line along ttfe west route.  Regarding Francis Peninsula*  it would be absolutely necessary  to have the roads located and  cleared before any consideration  can be given to building services  to the house on that peninsula.  Rural electrification is costly enough without entering into any  logging operations.  We are sending an Engineer to  the area in about two weeks for  the purpose, of making an accurate survey of the route and count  of the possible customers with or  without   Francis   Peninsula.   The  Engineering Department will then  make up the estimates, of. cost so  that a minimum    rate    can    be  struck on the basis of a reasonable  percentage of the  potential  customers * signing   up.   We   will  then   contact   your   organization,  or others, and have firm contract  applications'  signed.    If   the   required  proportion  sign,   the  project   will   be   then   recommendea  to  the  Government and,    if   approved, will be undertaken by the  Commission. ��� ���    ~  Yours very  truly,  S. R. WESTON, Chairman  In, passing on this information  to our readers, we hope that they  may be governed accordingly.  It might be remarked here too,  that the survey party is now on  the ground, marking out possible'  lines. Details elsewhere in this  issue. ;.

Sladey adds considerably  to the accommodation on the  ��� Peninsula for the travelling and  holidaying public,  So far, after one year of construction, there are six cabins,  each, finished inside in knotty  pine, built by the Sechelt Building Supplies Ltd., well and nicely  furnished throughout, complete  with propane gas cooking units,  oil heating units, complete with  bathrooms. The (living; rooms are  pleasant, fitted with a chesterfield which does double duty as  sleeping space, as well as the bedrooms.      .  The Motel colors of Blue and  White are repeated in ttib new  boats tied at the Jetty, with th&  name "Sladey" in clear red along  their sides.  Though the grounds are not  entirely completed as yet, there  is already a children's pool under  the trees, where the small fry  may revel in fresh water bathing.  Mr. and Mrs. Sladey are very  enthusiastic about their spot, and  well may they be. The site is  overlooking Canoe Pass, close to  ithe highway, with an abundant  supply of good water from their  own private well. Fishing is to  be had right at the edge of the  property, swimming, hiking, and  boating are  there for the camp  ers.  Guests arrive by car or boat to  tenjoy their sojourn at the Madeira Motel.
