 LiBRAR  Victoria,  EU 0.  Phone your news or  '     orders to  Seventh Year of Publication  iX  Thursday, Sept. 10, 1953. Vol. 7 ��� No. 36,. _*ftblisbed in GIBSONS, B.C.     Serving the Sunny Sechelt Peninstda  w  "v..  4'.-,  -Ed T?scy Still  Winner  The big winner of the Province ..summer-long'' derby which  ended on Labor Day was Ed  Tracey of 4620 Brandon St.,  Burnaby, who. caught his 38 lb  7 ounce tyee out of Gibsons om  July 19th.  His prizes for the" Dferby Win;  are~a��JE___lmai&,&ed��^  of B-A. gasoline, and the Gibsons  Board  of  Trade  complete  fishingi  outfit.   To   quote  Ed,   "#fc  works out at about $66.00 a lb. *  The^ most profitable day's fish-  img-in any life."  Young Johnny Smith of Gibsons  admires  the  prize-winner.  Several fish of -over 30 lb.  weight were caught during the  weeks of the Derby.  "'Mrs. Stella Sneddon of Gibsons died in Vancouver Gen->  eral Hospital following" a tragic fire at her home on Friday  morning.  Mrs.   Clendenning,   living   next     ������ : ���   door, saw smoke coming from the  "bedroom window, and called to  the next neighbour, Mr. Wm.  Woof, who was working in his  yard. He ran to the house and  made his way to the bedroom.  There he found Mrs. Sneddon  on the floor, and the bed and  bedding burning. He carried the  .-.���little old lady" to'the "porch, while  by his son-in-law, Mr. MacDonald,  and another neighbour, - Mr.  Trigg, who had followed him,  threw the burning bedding from  the window.  Meantime, Mrs. Clendenning  had called' the Fire Department  and at Mr. Woof's urgent shouta,  called  Dr.   Hugh  Inglis.  Dr. Inglis and Mrs. Clendenning cared for Mrs. Sheddon,  finding her suffering from severe  shock, burns, and an injured foot,  which had evidently happened  sometime previously.  The Fire Brigade found that  apart from the bed and bedding,  and some damage to the interior  of the bedroom, the fire had progressed no further.  ��� Mrs. Sheddon was immediately  sent by Graham's ambulance, to  hospital, accompanied by* Miss  Godwin,  VON.  The firemen,, investigating for  possible  causey of  the  fire,   were  unable to discover anything except an electric bed-lamp with a  broken light, which was still  switched on. It has been suggested that the bed lamp had broken  in falling, and that the hot element had ignited the bedding.  Mr.'and Mrs. Sheddon, from  Vancouver Island, arrived Sunday  and reported * that their Mother,  Mrs. Sheddon, had been suffering  from diabetes. She preferred living alone, and had purchased the  home only recently, moving to  Gibsons about- three weeks ago.  WILSON  CREEK  WINS  TROPHY  In one of the best games of  the season, Wilson Creek edged  out Sechelt Firemen to win the  Osborne Trophy, with a 6 to 5  score,  on Labor Day.  In the 2nd and 3rd, the Creek  scored. Clayton homered in the  5th, bases loaded. In the 6th and  <�����i, Wilson Creek counted 4  more. Johnny Clayton's homer in  the last of the 9th was just not  enough.  Mrs. Osborne Sr., presented  the trophy, Orv Moscrip received  it for a h appy team.  The trophy was donated by  -   Mr. S.E. -Osborne Sr. .  ivertime game At  Port Mellon  fcrt Mellon  Two local men, Charles;-  :'Chuck" Tompkihgjland Ravell  will star in a Canadian Vaudeville touh slated y tp get under  way with a show^in Gibsons-  Friday evening. x$:-  Ravell has been # resident of  Sechelt but wiU Jjravel under  his professional name "starting  now".      *��� -'  t|;  ���..-���  Feature attraction will be the  act of Dick Sorenslh, who with  his 30 hitches of height at age  18 claims to be the world's smallest man. |vy  The "Mighty Mite" has appeared in showsA with such  screen greats as Gypsy Rose Lee  and others; The program will  centre around the hypnotic acts  of Ravell which includes such  scientific wonders. &s suspended  animation, . the flame defying  scene where actual flame is  laid agairist human flesh without harm or mark, and the usual  harmless albeit funny antics of  the "patients".      ^|  Charles Tompkins will m.c.  the show while handling his own  acts which have .been brought  to big time standards following;  his many public ap|jearances and  tours with var iou|: bands such  as the famed Virgil' Lane.       ; .'.'.'��������������� ���",       .^j;���?>-���..       .   , .....

In spite of the gatheringdusk, .  the  teams  decided to play  off  the   tie,   and   Gibsons   got   the  break and made the-most.of-it-  Jimmy Hall brought in the  winning run.

Port Mellon Holds  labor Day  ��">r-,-������".!-'_! a  r  -v ;���-������&*���    l;\ -r-.'  The Labor Day Festival spbnr  ��� sored].by the Sechelt Board ,of  Trade was highly successful, not  only from point of view of enjoyment, but financially, in spite  of the program being delayed  by an hour and a half.  Mr. Orv Moscrip, President of  the Board of Trade opened the  festival, then handed the mike  over to Mr. E. Pearson, who announced the various races.  Mrs- Orv Moscrip, Messrs.  Fred and Dave Oike, and E.E.  Cbe assisted by starting the con-  tesants and picking the winners  of the various events.  Three bicycle races for boys,  !meni and women were quite  exciting, as the course was a  triangle, and the ground a bit  rough and bushy. Mr- Leo  Johnson was a starter in the  men's race, but niot a winner.  As he said, neither he nor the  bicycle fitted each other.  The final event was a tug of  war between Indian Village and  Board of Trade. The Indian Village team won, after much heaving and straining, and in spite  of the spectators crowding in on  the teams to sucTT an extent, it  was hard for the men to get  any  air.  The exciting final game of  the Softball League was played  at five o'clock. Mr. Ross Laycock  carried Johnny Clayton from the  plate to the bench, when Johnny  brought in four runs on a home  run for the Firemen.  Hot Dogs, coffee and Ice cream  were sold by Mrs. H. Liste and  her helpers, Bonnie Butler.  Diana Wheeler, Diane Moscrip  and Sharon Swaim.  At eight o'clock that evening  there .was a giant bonfire on the  beach near the wharf and community singing. A crowded  dance was enjoyed later that  evening.  The people of Port Mellon  made the most of a beautiful  day for their Labor Day celebrations.  Starting early in.the day there  were sports and a picnic for the  children In the afternoon, therel  were grown-up sports, which  included almost every sport-  minded-person in the Pulp town.  - Races, tug-of-war and soft  ball were heartily entered into,  a��dd enjbyed by both contestants  and onlookers.  At eight o'clock there was a  buffet supper, given by Howe  Sound Pulp Company for alarge  jQumber of the staff and guesfc.  'I^s.^was i.fbll6^ed.^ater^'in^it_ie  1 evening by^ adaho(&;'whlch^^^^  well into the small hours,' and  was attended by a large crowd,  from the Port Mellon people to  the surrounding area, Gibsons  and beyond. Evidently this  proved to be a most enjoyable  event, and one that is still being  talked about.  _ The fact that the road, though  not officially open, is passable,  makes for a much better getting  together of the neighbourhoods  and a ' much more festive ' atmosphere.  Exhibition Game At  Sechelt  The Mid-Peninsula League announces that there will be' an  exhibition Soft Ball game at  Sechelt between the Gibsons  Firemen and a Mid-Pen. "All  Star" team, on Sunday, Sept.  13th, at 5:00 p.m.  For weeks it has been the  desire of both Gibsons and the  Mid-Pen teams to get together,  but apparently the schedules of  regular games was so demanding  that no period was available  writable to both until.now.  POKT MEI-IiON  VISITS GIBSONS  Many Port Mellon residents  took advantage of the "courtesy  cars" provided by the Gibsons  Board of Trade on Port Mellon  Day. They came down to visit  and to shop in Gibsons, and to  just see the place that will be  their nearest shopping centre,  now that the road is passable.  The Sechelt Motor Transport  provided a bus, too, for the day,  which was well used, and accommodated a good number of passengers.  The stores of Gibsons impressed  the visitors favorably, and those  who weren't actually shopping enjoyed  "just looking".  Entertains Gibsons  Guests  pni Monday evening, Labour  Day, the Howe Sound Pulp Company entertained a large number  of guests, including approximately twenty couples from Gib-.  sonsl at a buffet supper given in  the dining room of .the cafeteria.  As the guests gatheredVv there  was a period of introductions artd  conversation, during which cock-,  tails and hors-d'oevres were  served. The buffet supper, a  truly beautiful one, was enjoyed  by all, with much cheerful talk  and banter.  The tables had been pleasanty  decorated with bouquets and  various decorative floral  arrangements, and the whole  large room presented a very  pleasing appearance.   .-._..-  Following the supper, a short  speech of welcome was made  by Mr. D. Williamsorj, ��� of the  staff of, Howe Sound Pulp Co.  He introduced Mr. J. Drumniond  chairman of the Gibsons Commissioners, who in turn, made  a few remarks of appreciation  on behalf of the Gibsons !guests.  He then described the change  in Port Mellon from what it  was in the older, days," in its  effect upon. Gibsons, and the  change in Gibsons itself, from  his own personal experience. He  spoke of Gibsons in 1911; the  days when a few summer camp*  ers used to come by boat with  a,pack of bedding and ay^pack  &$f*gxoc^ies^^  local merchant might be called  upon to supply a package of  matches and a bottle of coal  oil for the /'summer people".

With what he describes as 'his  back broken in two places'  Charlie will be confined to hospital for some time to come. He  phoned to Bob Cooke of the B.C.  Power last week, from a bedside  extension in St. Paul's.  The accident, suffered while  falling a tree on the clearing of  the right of way for the new road  to Agamemnon, hasn.ot been sufficient to take the argumentativeness out of Charlie, who  swears that he will be out in two  months, 'no matter what'. i5_. ~ -i~-f.

Cattle and horses pasture at large m this country, and  are on the highway without attendants, at all Hours.  The loss of the team of horses last week simply points  up our argument. What coverage is provided Jor vehicles  under these circumstances is no!t clear. It is doubtful if there  is any provision, in this case.  It would be interesting to know, in a similar case, to  whom civil courts would award damages, if it were shown  that there was no negligence on the part of the driver.  Speaking from experience, we can state without equivocation, that negligence does not need to enter the picture  tin. -many ��__Jbancesf  Cattle  and horses  Apparently do not  understand traffic sfgns written in Enlish, nor are they versed in the rules of the road.  They will wander, turn and cross, without making signals, and they rarely carry lights. It is hard to .understand  how the owner permits his mosit valuable, longest pedigreed,  gentlest and best trained horse or cow to fall under the  wheels of, or tangle wilth th_ superior striking power oi,  motor vehicles* '-.���'���'  Shower For Baby  Rogers  ^Thursday evening, Mrs. F.

"Myles Morley"  Sechelt.  by Bladge Newman  A lively party for 12 took  place on the 3rd when Jimmie  and Robbie Gibson celebrated  their birthday. The twin sons  of Mr. and Mrs. H. Gibson were  one year old. The family, consisting also of Lynne 7 and John  3, are staying with Mrs- Gibson's  (mother, Mrs. W. Forrest. Mr.  Gibson is employed at Kemano.  When the S.E. Perkins family  vacationed here it chanced that  Mr.   Perkins   had   a   birthday  which  was  celebrated  with   a  big  beach  fire.   On   the  night  previous  a friend happened to  catch two peculiar fish  of un>  known species. It happens also  that Mr.  Perkins is the father  of twin sons. By a strange coincidence the pair of fish turned  up at the birthday party, dressed  as twins,  one in pink and the  other in blue, complete in ruffled bonnets, dresses,  slips and  shawls,   even   to  three-cornered  undergarments and safety pins.  They were  gift  wrapped  in  a  large box,  securely fastened to  a board which had been raised  at one end to allow the beholder  to   receive   the   sudden,   unexpected and awful effect of the  staring ichthys. Each twin held  a rattle 'beneath a fin and they  shared   a  bottle   (beer) -with  a  balldon   nipple*.  The , enclosure  card read, "With very best fishes  for a happy birthday."  The Perkins family have returned to their home in Berkeley.  Mr. and Mrs. Earle Gramm  and the Colonel have returned  to their home in Seattle after  spending a week with Mrs. Ruth  Mitchell. Mr. Gramm was happy  to have proof that this is pretty  good fishing ground. Ralph Galliford, Bob Campbell and Doug  Warne, staying at Stratford, are  also    telling    some    good   fish  stories.  ������"_������  '.'">;>  Tripe, A Legend  Figurative & Literal  This is a story of real tripe,  the eatable type. Many years ago  a note arrived from a lady on  Gambier Island who shall be  nameless because as far as I know  she is still in the land of the  living, and if he is I hope she is  in fine fettle.  Hunting the alder bottoms on.  Gambier behind New Brighton I  thought I had better drop in and  see her. The burden of her note  was that a favorite cow had  reached a stage when it was  necessary to transform her into  beef. The lady knowing of our  experience in these matters desired consultation.  Our fee being satisfactory and  a date set, the conversation  evolved on ending the animal's  life in a merciful manner. This  was easily arranged to her satisfaction as she would not like to  be around at that precise moment.  The lady came from Lancashire, and those who have knowledge of the breed will have a  picture in their mind of her disquietude. However after the inevitable cup of tea the Madam  being in a more tranquil frame of  mnd about the demise of her pet,  the talk trended into a discussion  of salvage. The offal, as its is  known to the trade, being the  heart, liver, etc.; the disposal was  a matter of monetary concern.  Here was something one could  write down and really figure.  Sure; the liver, what would it  weigh, and the heart and tongue?  Would she get the brains and the  tail?  This was a. fence successfully,  mounted and then the talk  broadened out a bit. We'got as  far as Blackpool, on. some past  and gone Whit Monday when she  remembered  having sbme  delect  able tripe, and what could I do  about that?  By this time I had it in my  mind to stop the flow of'gustatory rhetoric but by then-we had  got to cows' heels, stewed eels,  and whelks in vinegar. Ah, but  she was glad to have such an understanding man1 to talk to.  "Did I remember them there  cakes and a certain sort of  candy?"

Gibsons Traffic Line  AN EFFECTIVE FENCE  The line-up of cars along Cower Road and down to the wharf  is a problem that has been occupying the attention of the Village Commission for some time,  and that of the business and residences- concerned for much  longer.  Three to five times daily, all  the businesses in that area' south  ��f the Post Office corner are  most effectively barred from entry and exit. It is not only* those  along the east side of the street  that suffer. Since the by-laws of  the village decree that no cars  park along the west side, any  person in a vehicle is effectively  revented from parking near the  place with which he might do  business in that end of the Village, - since   "No   Parking" signs  occupy one side of the, street and  the line-up of cars, bumper to  bumper, for hours each dajO occupy the other.  Sunset Hardware, Shell Service  Station, Gibsons Meat Market, the  new P.H.N. Office; really suffer  seriously the inconvenience placed  upon them and their patrons. -  As far as the Village of Gibsons  is concerned, the ferry traffic going through means very little,  financially, since when the ferries  dock, the vehicles are driven off y  and away as fast as is reasonably^  possible. The odd pack of cigarettes, cup of coffee or ice cream  that is purchased by the outgoing  traffic scarcely compensates for  the  general   business  tie-up.  The problem is a serious one.  To point it' up, for example, Mr.  Schutz of the S&S Service Station,  one of the businesses most seriously affected, advises that due  to this blocking of access to his  place, he has lost enough straight  local business that he is compelled  to cut staff.  The situation of traffic regulation!  to keep entries to  business  It's   Murdoch's  For  Gillnetting Sufpl.es  Needles, Net Twine  *" �����  Dye, Etc.  EVINRUDE AGENCY  3 to 25 h.p.

Only one eftr can be the favorite! Only  one car can be the most-sought, most-bought car in Canada! That car,  year-in, year-out, is Chevrolet. In the first six months of 1953, according to the latest official registration figures, Canadians bought 41,660  Chevrolets. This is 12,401 more cars than were sold by its nearest  competitor ��� dramatic proof of Canada's continuing preference for  Chevrolets!.  The tremendous popularity of Chevrolet means lower production costs.  It means big savings that are passed on to you! And because Chevrolet  value lasts, there are extra dollars for you when you trade in your  Chevrolet, for Chevrolet consistently shows highest trade-in values of  any car in Canada! Final proof of good value is the loyalty of Chevrolet drivers, a loyalty that grows stronger with every new year ��� with  every great Chevrolet we build.  Although other cars are; available, thousands of Canadians are waiting patiently to get their Chevrolet. No other car will do! Surely this is  proof of Chevrolet^ superiority . . . and its unchallenged place in the  hearts of Canadian motorists.  ���������>.������  C-2053C  emus : Requiem Mass was celebrated  at Our Lady of Lourdes Church,  Sechelt, Wednesday, September  2*id, at 10:00 a.m., by Father D.

TRIPE.a LEGEND  FIGURATIVE AND LITERAL  as I had read of some of these  gourmets' delights, but my origin  was quite a way from Blackpool.  To get back to the tripe, I hinted that this might be worthy of  more discussion as there was a  certain modus operandi on the  subject before this transformation could take place. This would  entail expense, slight of course,  but nevertheless .the laborer being  worthy of his hire, etc. "Eh, ba  goom lad,  thee's raat."  I suggested another difficulty; -  the keeping of these comestibles.  That   started   another   round   of  earnest conversation on smoking  jmeat, ..and.rbrine^--^---^��-:'^^v---:-;'-'-';'?v  I should deviate here to ;say  that the lady had a husband: who  had seen his ,/best days as a hand-  logger of some renown, and was  generally regarded as being only  an adjunct. My idea was that the .  old chap was very lucky because  madam was an excellent housekeeper and spotlessly clean. Anyhow he would look after the  brine. -  His lasting regret and constant  theme of conversation was the  splendid rye whisky that he had  consumed in his heyday on Minstrel Island.   v    _ -  To get back on the line again.  Madam, the good soul, was beginning to grasp the difficulties  of her ideas. Anyhow we had to  go as it-was. getting dark and we  had some wild meat of our own  to look after,  I returned on. the date mentioned -and already "Madam had  departed for the time being.

BOWLING NEWS  The Ten-Pin League lias met  and elected Tommy Reynolds as  president; Bill Wood, secretary;  and Jim Parker, treasurer, for  the coming year. The same eight  teams as the previous year are  playing,' and weekly play will begin September. 14, Monday, 7:00  p.m.  to  9:00 p.m.  7 Day School Week  In.the past our school has had  thirty-five class periods per week  consisting of seven 40-minute  periods per day for five days.  This time-table presented us with  sojne  disadvantages.  For  instance in  Home  Economics  and  Industrial - Arts  it was  necessary   to' have   at  least   one  double period per week per class  to give Ifime for setting up equipment,    baking,-    and    completing  iriachine work. As a result other  classes such as French, Math and  English' also had to have double  periods with a consequent;waste  of  considerable  time.   Typing  10  students are. not ready to type for  an  hour and  twenty  minutes  at  one stretch.  Another disadvantage to the  five-day week timetable lay in the  fact that most holidays come  either on. the Monday or Friday  with a 'loss to the same set of  classes .each time we had a long ���  weekend.  Then too, because we haven't  large enough staff yet to offer  all the courses we present to  pupils without double programming; one teacher often presents  an English 20 and an English 21  lesson to two groups in the same  room in the same period. The  forty minute period is too short  to divide well into the double  period.."'.. s.s  Because of these disadvantages  many schools have turned to the  seven day week which results in  five one-hour periods per day  with classes rotating over a seven  day period.  Elphinstone High School is using the, system for the first time  for the.,1953-19 54 term. We hope  to be able to avoid the double'  periods for the shops by giving  them the one hour periods-in- -  stead.     ���'.  The longer period will divide  for double) programming better,  and since each holiday will just  be a break in the time-table from,  which we go right on. to tile next  day no; matter which day it falls  on, no course will lose more time  than another because of long  weekends. ���  In grades 7 and 8, courses requiring isix or seven periods of  the thirty-five need not now have  a double period to get in the extra  time.  The .hour period,  too,   is longx  enough for more than-one aspect  of a subject to be dealt with in  -the same period1 giving the younger students greater ^variety, e-g-  the teacher may teach a poem for  the first half hour and then go  on to grammer or writing the  paragraph* in the second half  hour. y  Since the seven-day week is an  experiment for us, we anticipate  some confusion, at first among  pupils and parents too. We hope  that this explanation will help  clear up some of iTo.0 questions.  If your son comes roaring in on  Monday with "What day is this?"  he doesn't mean "is it Monday or  Tuesday?" buCis. it Day; 7 or  : are we on to  Day 1 again?"
