'���', '*  Sechelt Volunteer  Fire Brigade  Mr.   E.   Pearson,   chairman   of  the   publicity   committee   of   the  Sechelt  Board  of  Trade,   advises  that McMillan, Bloedel Ltd. have  I    lent a  truck  for the  use  of the  i    Sechelt   Volunteer   Fire   Brigade.  The Brigade have the use of this  ,    truck  until ^ such  time   that  McMillan,   Bloede'l  Ltd.   resume  operations here. The-people of the  area will be pleased to know this,  as   the   previous   truck   collapsed  some time ago. Fortunately, there  have been l no fires.  The Brigade members are busy  \ making a deck and tank for this  j truck. It is being constructed in  such a manner that should the  truck be required by the owners,  the tank can be removed to be  used on another vehicle. The  various garages are co-operating  with the Brigade, by lending  welding equipment, etc.  The Brigade may be a hobby  to the members, but they do  spend a good deal of time and  energy on it, and there is1 always  the time of a fire, when it is  anything but a hobby for them.  The residents of the district are  grateful to these volunteers, although they may not be vocal in  ,.   their thanks.  A.N.A.F. lo Meet  The Army, Navy and Air  Force Veterans are to meet at  Gambier on Sunday, October  lith, at 2:00 p.m. This 'is the  Anunal General Meeting, which  had ben postponed.  Word was received on Tuesday that the Island had been  somewhat cut off since Sunday  last, due; to storm damage, and  no word of the meeting could be  Sent sooner. .  Gibsons V.F.B.  Answers Call  >���'���'. y  j  Sunday, morning last, the Gibsons Volunteer Firemen answered what proved to be a 'false  alarm' in record time.  At 10:6.1 a.m.j the siren! sounded. Sunday, the worst possible  day for a local Volunteer Brigade^ did; not deter the Gibsons  boys. AtJ 10:07 they had assembled at tile new duplex built by  Mr. Thomas, in the Bay area  called by a neighbour who had  seen what seemed to be flames  shooting: up from the roof.  On rounding" the corner of the'  house, they discovered Mr.  Thomas busily burning brush  land debris at the rear of his lot.  (Permit, hose and all complete  was Mr.. Thomas.)  The Fireboys, relieved to find  there was no trouble, returned  to the firehall, all in order, at  *10:18 a.m.  The First Annual Dinner and  Dance of the Penderf Harbour  and Districtl Board pf Trade  was a very successful and enjoyable event with members from  as far away.as Blind Bay; Nelson  Island and visitors from Vancouver and Victoria. ���'_���>.'  , The M.C., Mr. Jim Marsh,  opened the affair by proposing  a toast to the Queen, Canada,  The Boards of Trade p$d Pender  Harbour District.      vl'  The President of thtevBoard ��f  Trade, W.P. Peiper, rip.troduced  the guests who wer&f Mr. and  Mrs. Merrillees, representing the;  Vancouver Board of Trade, Mr.  and Mrs. Tom Larsori^ Gibsons  Board, Mr. Ken , Whifaker, Sechelt Board, Mr. and j3V_rs.

Griffiths, froni Victoria, representing  the B.C. Power Commission. Dr.  Richard Hitchings, 'the new  Pender Harbour doctojr-and his  bride were introduced^ also Mr.  and Mrs. Erie Davidson who  have just returned from their  honeymoon.  Regrets were sent., by representatives   faf  the   Government  who were unable to yattend: as  the Legislatature was iriysessiion.  Following    the    dinner    Mr.  .< Peiper called on the guests for  a few words. Mr Merrillees drew  comparisons between-vtHe work  of Boards^ in Rural -Dimwits and  , |hose5 in^he^Gities.

Each   of r the  speakers brought words of appreciation    and   encouragement  from their  organization.  Mr. G. Griffith of the B.C.  Power Commission gave *an outline of the work of the Commis-  ision since its inception to the  present time but did not commit  he Commission to any definite  time for the arrival of power  iat Pender- Harbour. However,  since hearing Mr. Griffiths re-  (Oo*ifinned on rjasre 5)  See Annual Dinner  B.C. Power Has  Trouble  The regional manager of the  B.C. Power Commission, Mr. R.  Cook, advises that the outage last  Tuesday evening was caused solely* by a damaged .insulator at  Sechelt.  Shooting, with a rifle or sling  shot, or throwing stones, often  results in cracked insulators.  These are often not discernible  from the ground, even with binoculars. While the weather is dry,  no great harm results, if the  glass is just cracked.  As soon as the driving rains of  autumn begin, the water penetrates the cracked or broken insulator, and the short occurs.  In the case of Tuesday night,  the instilator was not hard to  find, and it was close. The time  lost from, movies, bowling, radio,  or just plain use of power or  light was short.  As Mr. Cook explained, when  the damage is done along the  lines in the country, the time  that must elapse before the  breaks can be discovered, and  the necessary time for repair, are  much greater, and cause much  more  inconvenience  to everyone.  nsula  Peninsula Building Supply premise's at Sechelt were completely"  destroyed by. fire of unknown origin early Monday morning, September 28th. The alarm was turned iri<af;2:20 a.m. by Mrs. R Larson,  whose son had been awakened by the flames reflected on his bedroom window. ;  Sechelt  Volunteer  Fire  Brig-    -^y~} ' ~  ade turnd out in full force, connected here hoses to the hydrant  iat the end of the.

Rolls of slate surfaced roofing  could be seen still standing at  the hight of the fire. Surprising-  and a lane, before the cement  block bowling alley.

Good Citizen's Wife Stands Beside Hint  <     > * * *        . t *  r    i j:- , h < k���< -    \ _____  Photo by C.G. Ballentine.  On being informed that he had been chosen as the Good Citizen-  of Gibsons and District, Harry Winn said that his wife had always stood beside him, and asked that she. do so at the ceremony. Mrs. Winnj (Lou to most.of us,) joined Harry at the head:  table.  Storm Damage  High winds and storm tossed  waters in Howe Sound on Sunday evening caused the crew of  the 'Bainibridge' to regard, as  unnecessarily hazardous the  early evening trip to Horseshoe  Bay. In addition, there was no  power available at Horseshoe  Bay so that the incoming trip  at that hour was greatly delayed,  Travellers were all eventually  accomodated, though the hour  was late before the final crossing;  was made.  Trees were broken and blown  down, telephone and power services intrupted, gardens in exposed areas were partially dismantled.  By Monday morning, most of  ,the damage had been cleared  away, and services were for the  most part operating normally.  New Business  Gibsons loss is Penders gain~  Mrs. Nina M. Jones, ,of Gibsons^  is moving to Garden Bay to opens  her 'Specialty Shop' there in the?  little shop formerly iperated as--  a dress shop by Mrs. Lyons of  iSechelt.  Mrs. Jones has lived in Gibsons for just under two years,  having come from. Golden, B.C  She will be joined in Garden'  Bay by her son, as soon as he  comes from Golden. She hopes-  to make Garden Bay her home-  as well as business headquarters.  Local Grads Go Ta  O.B.C.  These annoying interruptions  that inconvenience everyone who  use light and power will continue  as long as insulators damage in  this way. There is not a sufficient  crew to patrol the lines and to  climb every pole in the area to  find these cracked insulators,  even supposing they had no other  work  to  occupy  them.    ���  Mr. Cook requests that anyone  noticing cracked or broken insulators, or anything else unusual  about the power lines or poles,  should phone to him. He adds the  word "Collect". Such a phone call  may be the means of preventing  further annoyance and inconvenience to a great number of  people.  Seven      Peninsula     graduatesy-  more   than   at   any   time   in   the*  district's   past,   have   enrolled   at  the University of British Columbia for the coming session.

This headache is  shared by all theatre, concert and radio audiences, by every  home-owner and business operator, by all the schools, doctors,  hospitals in the whole community. It is the cutting of power  from a cracked or broken insulator.  These insulators may stand for many weeks during dry  weather with no power failure, touti as soon as the heavy rains  begin, so does trouble.  4  As long as foolish, thoughtless people with rifles, sling  shots or merely stones, make the insulators their targets,  bo long will we have these sudden, unpredictable and costly  power failures. .  Surely the community is now sufficiently civlized ,to realize the. effects of such damage, Children must be taught, its  true, buitl there are so few children so young as to be unknowing in their damaging sport who can hit an insulator. This'  gmacks of youthful or adult strength, directed by either complete thoughtlessness or by the mind of a moron.  Parents and school teachers should impress their charges  With the seriousness of the offence, and those who are adult  in strength and skill, who sttdll persist in childish play, must  eventually be curbed by the Law.  M citizenship  The award given lasit week by the Gibsons Board of Trade  to one whom they considered to be the greatest exponent of  the "Golden Rule" is a pleasant form of recognition by the,  people of an area of the worth of one of their members as  a man, as a member of society, and as a worker among them.  This first year's award has been given to Harry Winn.  We can think of no one who more deserves the choice, nor can  we think of any one who will wear the title with more graced  and modesty. We congratulate the Board of Trade upon their  judgement.  Safety precautions  Now that we have all turned our clocks back for an hour,  the closing-in evenings seem to.have practically shut with a  snap. That means that more and more people will be compelled to move about after dark.  With the highways being blacktopped, and more vehicles  moving, pedestrians are not easy to see, particularly when  the driver is operating with his "courtesy beam" for on-com-  mg traffic.  It would be a measure of safety for all foot travellers  to hqfve flashlights. Children's clothes might bear a patch or  stripe of Scotch-lite tape, or some other reflecting material.  Bicycles should definitely be equipped with both front and  rear reflectors, and headlights.  Vehicles travelling with projecting loads, such as timbers,  logs, etc., are reminded that while a bit of red.flag waving  from the end is'quite effective by day, it is not so by night,  and either a light or a reflector should be fastentd to- the  projecting portion of the load. Horse drawn vehicls should be  equipped with reflectors or lights. Aboveall, live stock should,  not be permitted on the highways unattended.  Reader's Right  GOOD CITIZENS     -  Editdr, The Coast News,  In regard to the choice of  citizenship award, shouldn't thei  selection have been made in regard to civic progress, rather  than public service?  For instance, Men such as the  jEollowii-ig have been builders of  Gibsons, and worked for its welfare over a number of years,  although little  is, ever  said  of  their accomplishments.  For instance, Mr. Ballentine  or Mr. C.P. Smith. Mr. Smith  is an elder citizen- who has har;  Gibson's welfare at heart. Noted  ifor his hospitality, he has also  jshowri his confidence in his  town by investments to further  its  growth and success.  Mr. Ballentine is doing a fine-  job of administering to Public  welfare through public works,  and has been a foremost contributor to progress.  John Cattanach.  Gibsons.  Ed's Note: We, too, appreciate  the difficulty, and are glad the  responsibility of the choice was  not ours. We do believe the final  choice was a logical one.  s New forests  by   JAMES   K.  NESBITT  By special permission from the  "News Herald."  Way back of beyond, in the  hills of Vancouver Island, new  forests  are  growing.  They can't be seen from the  main highways, these magnificent splashes of green, small  trees now, but a tremendous  hope for the future.  It's only when you travel miles  along logging roads that you suddenly come upon new trees���  and then you travel through  acres and acres of them. It's a  wonderful sight���and whdn you  see those lush new trees you  know that acres that were logged or burned are no longer left  nude and ugly. New timber is  being grown, covering the scars  ���and much more important  than that, it's timber that will  be ready for cutting 80 to 100  years from now.  Thus this generation is looking after the interests and the  well-being of generations yet  unborn.  Government and Industry are  now doing there best to see that  BC's rich forest resources are  preserved for all time, so that  this province will never lose it's  very backbone, it's blood and'  it's sinew. Without the forest industry, B.C. would amount to  very   little.  A few days ago I saw new  forests springing up in the  country that was laid bare by  the great Campbell River fire  of 1938. I was astonished, and,  comforted. I stood on hilltops  and looked down on those new  forests, and wished that all the  people could know they're growing.' ' ''''"    "''       "  James Sheasgreen, manager of  Canadian Western Lumber, and  his chief forester, Fred Mull-  holland were standing on the  hilltops too, and fairly bursting  with pride. These two, like most  forestry men, eat and sleep and  talk trees, all the time, any time.  A forest tree,;, to them, is what  a prize azalea is to a nurseryman. Messrs Sheasgreen and  Mullholland supplied many of  the statistics in this article.  From 1943 to 1948, Canadian  Western Limber, for instance,  planted 3,026,000 trees on 3,650  acres of denuded land, mostly  on the site of the Campbell  River fire.  Total planting throughout the  province, since 1930, now amounts to 91,517,450 trees, on  110,647 acres, while the government's forest service has planted  75,930,350 trees on 91,412 acres.  UBC forestry dean George S.  Allen was standing on those hilltops looking down at the new "  forests, and he said: "The forest  will renew itself quickly if given  half a chance, The menace of  fire, however is always present.  If we continue tohave fires such  as that which swept the Campbell River area in 1938, and the  Mount Benson fire in 1951, then  we shall have to plant in a big  way.

Planting of new trees  is done by regular logging crews  when deep snow at higher Revels  makes logging impossible. They  are assisted from time to j time  by school boys.

He finds a school of this size  very different from his former  life, with the nearest kids approximately ten miles away.  When asked what he thought  of school, he said,.

At present, survival about 85 percent, which is  very high. Frost heave, and  other factors, such as animals  eating the small trees, often  bring it down.  Here are some surprising figures supplied by Messrs. Sheasgreen and Mullholland: a good  planter, working favorable  country, can plant from 750 to  1,000 trees a day���enough to  reforest a little more than an  acre.  The government's forest service furnishes all seedlings, with  the exception of exotics being  planted experimentally. The  eeedlings ' are supplied by the.  government free of charge from.  Forest Service nurseries at Duncan, Campbell River and Green  Timbers.  Foresters are learning more  about planting each year, and  they have found that seeds do  best right on the spot where they  were grown. Slope, shade, elevation, water supply, soil conditions and other factors all affect  the growth rate and vigor of the  young trees.  At least 90 percent of all cut-  over lands on the coast will restock voluntarily if given a  chance. Tbe only "fail soots''  found so far on lands of Canadian Western Lumber are areas  which suffered fires after the  regeneration had become  established but before the trees  wereidd enough to throw seed.  This eliminated the seed source,  and automatically necessitated  planting.  I came away from the beautiful new forests convinced that  as long as government and industry are determined to grow trees  "Hensom,    the   company    ap-     accidents,   but   after   all,   yon:  predated your efforts to avoid     fcnust do* some, work."  ���either by encouraging Nature,  or by planting���the people of  this province have nothing to  worry about.  However, the public also has  it's responsibility, and that is to  help cut down the fire hazard,  and to keep its elected representatives alive to the importance  of our forests.
