Serving the Sunny Sechelt Peninsula  Vaccination Call in India  nat  On Saturday, August 15th,  a fire broke out near, the head  of Sakinaw Lake, in.the home  of Mr. Herd, Senipr;JThe house  was completely demolished, and  all Mr. Herd's effects lost. From  the house, the fire spread to the  surrounding woods.  The Forestry station at Pender Harbour reported that with  a crew of men, the, blaze. was  not too difficult to handle, and  was soon brought under control.  Mr. Herd is temporarily staying with his son in Irvines Ldg.  In speaking Of trie fire, the  Forest Ranger reports that having had approximately one-tenith  of an inch of rain, vthe woods  there are not too seriously dry a  coditioni, and that ^immediate  closure is not contemplated.  At Sechelt last week-end,  equipment was being checked  ,and tested, one of tlie constant  chores at this time of "year, with  the; Forestry Department.  Loudspeakers mounted on rickshaws call the people of Delhi, India,  to visit specially established vaccination centers at the nearest street  corner, to get their anti-TB inoculation. This is part of the tuberculosis control program now being carried/out by India with aid  from the U.N.*International Children's Emergency Fund (TJNICEF).

Letn Wray Muscle Man on Log Bucking.  Pender Harbour Aquatic Club arranged and handled the biggest and best Regatta in the history of the event this year.  There were more classes of events, more entrants in each  class, and finer displays than there have ever been, according to  both residents and visitors. This1 is the seventh Regatta at Pender*  Harbour, and the crowds that lined' the shores of the  {natural amphitheater at Madeira, as well as those who moored  their cruisers just off the floats, remained! throught the whole  day for sail events..., ,    ���  From   the    early    Decorated  boat  parade,   through   aH the  ewimming,  diving  arid racing  items to the big dance at night,  even the weather was impressed,  and forbore to rain.  Canon Greene of the Columbia  Coast  Mission  made  a  formal  .speech   of  opening,   and  introduced Anne Robinson as Regatta  Queero,  and followed by introducing Mr. Tony Gargrave, M.  L.A.,     who    came  forward   to  brown   the  queen.   This  Httfle  teeretoiony  took  pDaee   on   the  flower-decked  float,  the  queen  'being   attended  by  the  young  ladies  of Mrs.  Hodson's swimming classes.  The Regatta was declared ���  open, and the swimming races  began. Mr. John Haddock at the  Mike introduced each number,  and called the names of the winners. The. display of swimming  -*n& diving was a real credit to-  the performers and to their instructors, and entrants from various parts of the Peninsula competed with those from swimming  classes in Vancouver and Burnaby, and some as far as Cali-  fornia.The local talent lost nothing in the comparison.  In the late afternoon, the log-  bucking, chopping and rolling  competition�� were held, with  I_en Wray winning the bucking  in (the surprising time of 38  Fiecondls, Nestor Newman tftie  ichopping in 1 minute and 32  Seconds, and Frank Jorgerison  ���the Log Rolling.  �� -;;'  The Dinghy-tilting brought  whoops of delight from spectators and performers alike, as  the contestants struggled and  were finally pushed into the  ���sea.  Worthy of special mention! of  ' ithe day's events,.'. too, were the  -group  of  log-rollers,   who,   six  together, put on p. demonstration  . for the crowd before each man  finally tossed into the water.  Of the decorated boats, the  "Summer Time" "Queer Elizabeth" and the comic 'Very  Large Whale" seemed to please  the audience most. Each of  these was well done in its group,  )as were the others, but these^  because of their unusual themes  and the excellence of their presentation made the most appeal  ito the audience.  Guests from Southern Cali-  foria to Princess Louise Inlet  were seen among the crowd, and  from Victoria to the Prairies.  The Regatta proved extremely  popular with all, whether landlubbers or sea-faring folk.  Noted alongside the float was  the new John Antle, the recon-  fetructed and refitted "Western  Hope*' which has been commissioned about six weeks, and  was recently dedicated in, Toronto. Canon Greene finds her a  comfortable craft, but "not  quite the sailor the old one was."  Special mention was given to  Dorothy Greggerson and to  <Qarry Spicer. winners of the  Swimming Class Achievement  Cups and Shield.  At the Gibsons weighing in  Etatienv this past week, fchere  has only been one really big  fish, up to and including Sunday.  Mr. J. Bell of 2560 McKay Avej  jSoiith Burnaby caught one off  Gower Point oni August 14th  that weighed 21 pounds 4 ozs.  Allypthers that w*<re weighed  yi||ts:a^��j^ty!s^^8t ^_atal^ayei>  been ini the seven and eight lb  class.  Harry urges fishermen to  take heart, however, since between the last official weighing  period and going to press, there  have been a few caught that  have tipped the scales at well  over twenty pounds. So it  would seem, there is another  run of big spring in the area.  Ferry Traffic Causes  Concern  The Village Commissioners of  Gibsons, at their last' meeting,  spent a good deal of the evening  trying to arrive at a satisfactory  solution to tlie problem posed  by the constantly increasing vehicular traffic to the Ferries.  The greatest trouble, according to Commissioner Schutz, is  at the corner from the Gibsons  Meat Market to the top of the  wharf ramp. Here, vehicles  crowd bumper to bumper, and  wait for ferries to come, thus  ��j_ffV2tively blocking entry to  the S & S Service Station, and  preventing customers from driving to the gas pumps or service  entry. -  There was much discussion as  to whose responsibility the matter is, and how to overcome the  trouble. A letter-has been writ-  \ben againi to Victoria, describing  Ithe situaton and asking for a  Solution to be suggested.  Bids from contractors on the  Hearing of two roads in the Bay  terea will be opened at the next  meeting.  A resolution was passed directing that special thanks be offered to John Woods, Gibsons  tfor his excellent work with the*  s^vimining classes held this summer for the children.  The��e instructional periods  r"'+h the young people and the  rmoroved swimminig pool have  rmwle for greater potmlaritv and  safety at the Municipal Beach.  ay rair urea  irsi  Succes  The Howe Sound Fall Fair  held at Gibsons oh August 14th  and 15th was a highly successful  one this year.  Admissions at the door were  greatly increased over last year,  according to the Secretary, Mrs.  LeFeuvre.  Flowers were declared by the  judges to be of a variety and  "quality far above those usually  displayed at Fairs of yttiis size.  The general arrangement of exhibits displayed was the, most  attractive seen at this fair for  many years.  The Fair was formally opened  by Mr. Norman Sergeant, who introduced the May Queen to those  present, and made presentations  to the Queen and her attendants.  The girls all received initialled  brooches, while the boys received  wallets, as mementos of the occasion.  Mr. Tony Gargrave, M.L.A. for  MacKenzie Riding was present at  the Fair before proceeding to  Pender  Harbour.  Hr. iuiarews, or the Garden  Club, escorted the May Queen  through the fair and explained  points about the various exhibits  to her. '  Continued Page 5  See Begonia Display  Car Turns Over  While driving on the road from  Hopkins Landing last Tuesday  evening, young Mrs. Cartwright  had the misfortune to run onto  a soft shoulder of the road. The  car hit a gravel bank and turned  over.  Mrs. Cartwright suffered a  badly bruised knee, but evidently,  according to her husband, nothing worse. The car, a smart light  blue Meteor, looked rathei' sad  being'towed "into Gibsons with a  crumpled front fender and a  clutch pedal not working.  The Cartwrights are out at the  Elphinstone camp, and the temporary loss of their transportation is their biggest worry.  On Marine Drive  D. WORTMAN, W.  PETERSON  SHARE FIRST ACCXDENT  The first car accident on Gib��-  sons downtown streets took place?  on Friday) August 14th, near the*  Totem Realty, when Bill Peters-  son and Do Wortman locked^  horns, or cars.  Bill  Peterson  was  driving   his?  new used Chev. of which he had-  just taken delivery, south along:  Marine Drive. Mrs. Wqrtman was?  leaving the curb to proceed irti  the same direction. Bill dainie&i  he did not see the signal, whiles  Mrs.. Wortman stated that she-*  did not see Bill.  Corporal Morrison, RCMP was?  called by Mrs. .Wortman, and arrived promptly to look the situation over, and took the two  drivers away to the Station Cos-  statements.  Peterson's car suffered a bad?>  scrape and a dented front fender;-  while the Coast News car drive*-/  by Mrs. Wortman had a badly^  bent front bumper and fender.  The street was clear of traffic:  at the moment, but an interested-,  group of citizens soon arrived to?  view with alarm this first breafe  in the otherwise free  recwrd.  Life Guards Act  During one of the junior Boys?;  swimming  racets; at the Rega__t��_  the   two   Life   Guards   on.   handl,  were #t^  act to prevent trouble.; ���-���::.  One young swimmer, evidently"  overcome by eagerness and e:_>-  citement, suddenly came to a storp  in the middle of his course. He2  seemed quite unable to precee_��~  and was on the thin edge o��.~  panic.  The two Life Guards slipped^  into the water and were one ore  each side of the boy in a split:  second. Very neatly, they encouraged him, and swam in with hinKx  to the finish line. The young?  swimmer was saved a bad scares-  was encouraged, and the day was"-  saved from being marred. No fuses  was made, and very few were?  aware of the near trouble.  Board Of Trade Plans  Welcome Day For Port Mellon  At their regular meeting on Monday evening, The Board of_.  Trade, Gibsons, discussed plans and possibilities of setting Sept^-  fifth, Saturday, as a day on which special welcome anight be extended to the residents of Port Mellon.  If it is possible, a "Road Opening" ceremony is planned. Operr'  House in all, business houses is suggested, and though it is"not:-  decided that they stay open all evening, it is planned that they '  all be well lighted and decorated for the occasion.  What each business place may  do, it was decided, should be  left to the individual concerns.  It is proposed that decorations  and decorated windows throughout the Village be a part of the  (arrangements'.  A letter from the Board of  Trade has been written for publication in the "Howe Sound  Off", the organ of the Port Mellon People. Also, it has been  suggested that a "Familiarizat-  don Tour "be written up, to publish in order to acguaint the residents there with Gibsons businesses, etc.. Further definite  plans will be published here.  Mr. McFadden of Gibsons has  ripe white Strawberries of un-  knohvn origin, growing in his  yard.

In view of the number of voters disenfranchised  this summer ^by the fact that they were temporarily out of  the polling division where their names appeared on the  Voters' list, it seems that one of two things should be done.  First, elections should be held when everyone can be sure of  being in their own polling division, or Second, some means  should be taken of amending the Act to give electors a vote  to which by the laws of the land they are entitled.  Since it would seem impossible to be sure of having an  election when at least some voters are not at home, the second  course seems .to be reasonable.  No man made laws exist that cannot be changed by man,  so it' would seem reasonable to consider changes *that could  be effected with much satisfaction to all, and no immense  expense to the nation.  When Voters' Lists are made up, each, voter could be  supplied with a card or other small item to carry with him  which would entitle him to vote no matter where he was in  Canada. If it would be too complicated for the returning  officers to make out ballots by which he could cast a vote  for the candidate of his choice then standing in his own  riding, he could at least have the opportunity of voting for  his party in which ever polling division he cast his ballot.  When lists are published, it should be a much more convenient matter than at present for the public to have access  to these lists, and if their names do not appear,.to have them,  placed thereon. Information as to the eligibility of voters  should be much more wiclety ��>ublished than at present, and  this matter should- not be left to any particular political party  .campaigners to do, but should be done by the Government,  through the Returning Officer or other agency authorized  to do so.  In this matter, it seems to us, a Returning Officer should  be readily available to the public at some central point in the  Electoral District, and'the deputies should also be available  for consultation at stated times and places.  A further suggestion has been made that the system of  National Registration b*e revived, and the certificates carried  by persons then would be in themselves a clear identification,  and decision as to the eligibility to vote would be easy for  even the least-trained returning officer to make.  Opinions on this subject are being freely voiced. We  would be happy to publish any we receive.

Mr. De Carli's cousin, Mrs. P.  Meuse of Halffl Moon Bay.  Mrs. H. Sharpe of "Maranhar",  Welcome Beach is in Vancouver  awaiting the arrival of a grandchild.  A former owner of Redrooffs  resort, Mr. Tom Mackie of Vancouver, was renewing old acquaintances in the district last  week.  Mr. and Mrs. P. Welsh of Redrooffs had as their guest last  week, Mr. Welsh's nephew, Percy  Pitts of Vancouver.  Off for a holiday on Vancouver  Island and way points are the  Bill Koltermans of Half Moon  Bay.  Graham Wainwright of Vancouver enjoyed a weekend with  his parents and family who are  vacationing at Redrooffs Resort.  The Oswald summer cottage at  Redrooffs is occupied this month  by Mr. and Mrs. Phil Dill of Van-  couver.  Mr. and Mrs. Hill of West Vancouver are visiting Mrs. Hall's  cousin, Mrs. W. Meikle of Wei-,  come Beach. They are staying in  Major Gregg's beach cottage.  The F. W. Leuchtes of West  Vancouver and the Syd. Hoares  of Vancouver will finish out the  school vacations at their Welcome. Beach summer cottages.  Dr. Allan Bates * of Chicago  flew home last week, after vacationing at. their summer place at  Half Moon Bay. The family will  remain  for a while.  At the recent annual meeting  of the Welcome Beach Water  Board, Mr. F. W. Leuchte was  elected chairman for the ensuing  year, succeeding Mr. A. Hanney.  Mrs. G. Ladder was re-elected as  a trustee for a three-year term.  The meeting was held at the  home of the secretary-treasurer,  Mr. Alf. Young of Welcome  Beach.  Mr. and Mrs. Bill Corsan of  Vancouver are guests at the summer cottage of Bill's uncle, Don  Ross at Redrooffs.  Marilyn Lyons of Vancouver  motored up for her usual weekend visit with her parents, the  Frank  Lyons  of  Redrooffs.    '  Reports of big fish being  caught lately are nvany. Still unconfirmed is the report of a 50-  pounder caught in these waters  by an angler from Buccaneer  Bay. We can vouch for the 30-  pound whopper caught by Bill  Robinson of Vancouver, who is  holidaying at his Redrooffs ' cottage. The largest one on record  on Redrooffs this year is the  catch of Officer F. H. Lightly, of  the West Vancouver Police, which  tipped the scales at thirty-one  pounds.  Tommy Burrows of Redrooffs  has just returned from Campbell  River after a grand holiday at  the home of his sister Mary,'Mrs.  F. Kingston. He brought her back  with him, as well as his baby  nephew. v  R. D. Brewis off to Vancouver  on  business last week.  Big Fish Off  Ttiormanby Island  Bill Perkins of Selma Park is  doing a bit of boasting about the  big one he caught last Thursday,  a thirty-five pound Spring, off  Thormanby  Island.  That he was just out of bounds  and just out of hours for the  local Rod and Gun- Club Derby  didn't phase Bill a bit, he knows  there -are  big fish in the* sea!  FOE QUICK SALES  USE THE COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIED  Funeral service was held from  the parlors of Simmons & Mc-  Bride, Vancouver, last Monday  for Harry Percy Thorpe, 83, who  died in Shaughnessy Hospital.  Rev.   George  Knox  officiated.  The late Mr. Thorpe resided in  Gibsons for some years before  returning to Vancouver and  served in World War I with the  5th Canadian General Hospital at  Salonika.  Keenly interested in veterans'  affairs, the late Mr. Thorpe was  secretary of the Great War Veterans Association (Victoria  Branch) away back in 19 21.'  Later, when that organization  came into the Canadian Legion,  B.EiS.L.,. he became secretary of  PrO Patria Branch of the Legion  in the City of Victoria, being,  transferred from that position to  H.Q. of the Legion in Ottawa,  where he occupied the position of  Service Bureau officer for a per-  iod of ten years. v  Retiring to Gibsons, he was an  active member of Howe Sound  Branch No.  109  of the Legiou.  He leaves two daughters, Mrs.  George A. Walker; Glendale, California; Mrs, Charles W. McKay,  Vancouver; one great granddaughter; one sister, Mrs. Jessie  Good, England.  The Dominion Council, and  local. branch of the, Canadian  Legion was represented at the  funeral by Mr. Robt. Macnicol,  an old friend of forty years'  standing.     ,  IMPRESSES SAWYER  Harry Sawyer, back in Sechelt  after a spell in hospital, is very  much impressed with the results  of a withdrawal from the Blood  Bank for himself. Harry required six pints, he tells us, and  what a difference they made to  his outlook on life at the time.  He feels that every healthy  person who possibly can, should  make sure of donating as often  as is reasonable. .They should  deposit against a possible future  need for themselves or someone  else. When transfusions are  needed, they are free, and the  reserves of the Blood Bank depend upon the' donations of the  public, given as freely.  Harry wishes to thank his  friends for their many cards and  letters of good wishes while he  was in hospital. He will not be  driving during August, Mr. Tait  will continue during that time.  ��� Re-opening  September 15th  Contact  Mrs. H.E.

Mrs. Galliford made a convincing, and very warm, Eskimo,  fully covered in furs of all  description, some defying description.  The concert came to a close  with the singing of the Queen,  followed by their usual "Day is  Done" as they faced the setting  sun.

These decorated boats really  represented much in the way of  fertile imaginations, efforts and  artistic ability, as well as well-  developed sense of humor among  the entrants.  The judges for this group  were R. Aikenhead, Kelly Jackson and Mrs. Jackson.  v' There was a long list of swimming and diving events for both  rhildren and adults. Competition  was keen, and all classes well  filled.  Jim Marsh arted as starter for  the swimming races, and the committees had thoughtfully provided  several persons to check the winners in, and give them a hand  from the water.  In the Girls under 9 swim race,  E. Bagshaw was first, with M.  Brown' and C. Nicol tied for second, and S. Haddock third. (Dus-  enbury Cup).

The Madeira Park Motel Trophy for the Surf Board Competition went untaken, since there  were insufficient entrants to  make a competition. This is a  magnificent trophy, and well  worth working for. It is hoped  that next year there will be  enough venturesome souls to try  for it.  The trials of muscular strength  and speed, coupled with skill,  that are regrettably fast disappearing from ���local slates of  events, were held at the head of  the Bay, and attracted a gresTt,  number of watchers. The- Log'  Bucking -'contest went to. Len  Wray, who won the Murdoch  trophy in 38 seconds, after breaking a tie with Nestor Newman  from Maple Bay. Second was Wilf  Wray, 41 seconds. These were no  match sticks that were sawn in  this feat of strength.  The log-chopping (Gordon  Lyons Trophy) went to Nestor  Newman, 1 min. 32yseconds.

Reader's Right  The Editor,  "Coast News":  I read your editorial oh Juvenile Delinquency which appeared  in your issue of August 6, 1953,  and as I: am the mother of tbe  juvenile in question, I should like  to inform you that there was another reason why the "gentleman  of your acquaintance was taken  to task". This party laid hands  on my boy some hours after the  stone-throwing, and then came  to my husband and me and  wanted us to correct him  again.  I told him that this wasn't the  first time that he had taken it on  himself  to  chastise  my children, -  and I thought that it was high  time this was reported to the  police.  He told me that if I thought  ithat would do any good, to "go  to it". I took him up on this invitation, was asked if I wanted  to lay a charge, and I did so, and  I made it stick, so your acquaintance got exactly what he; asked  for.  MRS. M. JOHNSON.

Lugrin opened the  display saying methods of rescuing people in difficulties in the  water would be shown, and he  urged everyone to always render  assistance, even if they, were  doubtful that it was needed. He  spoke of the recent incident near  a Vancouver beach where assistance had been refused, when  asked for by a swimmer who was  in  difficulties. -  The first two methods showed  how to assist, if you were not a  swimmer yourself, by throwing  a ring buoy with rope attached,  or even a rope out to someone,  who could grasp these and be  towed ashore.  A- swimmer going out to make  a rescue could take a stick, so  that the person being rescued  could grasp it and be towed  ashore, in that way one protects  ones self from being impeded by  the rescued person.  Two of the swimmers then demonstrated the- Helger Neilsen  method of resuscitation. This  method was developed by a lieutenant in the Danish Army, and  is replacing the Sckaeffer method.  It was introduced by the Royal  Life Saving Society, and adopted  by St. John Brigade, and the Red  Cross. As demonstrated, it would  appear to entail less exertion' on  the part of the resuscitator. Mr.  Mills* survived.  The girl swimmers demonstrated synchronized swimming to  music, despite the rough water,  and the tide which carried them  down the waterfront." The men  swimmers demonstrated diving,  but were handicapped by the fact  that the tide was out and the  board was twenty-five feet from  the water instead of the usual  (ten feet with which they were  familiar.  Teams on the beach and a team  in the water showed several  methods of breaking holds of  drowning persons. The use of  pails or clothing as a means of  remaining afloat were shown. A'  series of swimmers showed the  evolution of swimming from the  dog paddle, side stroke, over arm  side stroke, breast stroke, towing  stroke devised by the Society for  rescue work, the racing strokes,  crawl, back-, and butterfly breast  stroke. The latter takes a great  deal of energy and is only used  for  short  lengths.  Two of the swimmers showed  how a partly submerged boat, if.  you sat on the bottom and not on  .the seats, could be paddled with  your hands, and you stood a  change of rescuing yourself.  The Royal Life Saving Societ>  was founded in England by William Henry in 1891, came under  Royal patronage in 1920. The  first Branch in Canada was  formed in 1909 in Ontario, and  in 1911 a branch was formed on  the West Coast.  The purpose- of the Society is  to teach methods of rescue and  resuscitation, and teach people to  swim. It holds examinations and  gives certificates for proficiency  in the art. The Union Steamships  Limited sponsored these displays  at Sechelt before World War II,  since then the Board of Trade  has done so.  NASTY ACCIDENT  AT BALL PARK  ��� At the ball game recently at  Selma Park, little Mary Ritchie  of Selma was struck in the eye  by a piece of iron pipe, wielded  by a small boy. The eye was  badly injured, and is still covered.  Last Saturday, according to Mrs.  Ritchie, the extent of damage had  not yet been determined, but the  child was feeling much better.

The presentation of a gift of an ashtray  to the Supervisor, and a fine cup  and saucer to each of the helpers  was indeed a surprise.  At theymeeting of the Institute  last Monday, the subject of Farmers' Co-operative Marketing was  discussed with interest, and while  only very preliminary effort can  be made at this time, there is  every prospect of a Farmers'  Market being established up the  hill this next Spring.
