Truck, Horses And Si  On , Friday-, nighjtlast, two  horses were killed when run into  hy a truck on the Sechelt Highway ahout a mile and. a half  West of Gibsons'. Joe Rushton's  truck is badly damaged as a result of the accident, and is considered a total loss. c -  - Joe was 'driving' into Gibsons  on Friday evening, and along the  V straight-away after ithe, Otto  Bangeter corner, his lights picked  up a hOrse on the road. He swung  out to avoid hitting it, but evidently the horse decided upon the  same course of action. When  Joe's truck hit that horse, it  swung off the pavement, striking  a second horse which was walking  alongside the pavement..  The force of this collision sent  the truck crashing into a telephone pole, breaking it off at  the base.  The horses, property of Ernie  Robinson, who/ operates a mill but  of Hopkins Landing, liave been a  familiar hazard" to motorists all  season, along this section of the  highway. The loss of a team to  Mr. Robinson will be a serious  one. The loss of a truck to Mr.  Rushton will be a more serious  one, since it was his means of  making a living.  It is fortunate that no person  was hurt in this accident, which  left the roadside strewn with  horses, truck fenders "and hood,  and a swinging phone pole.   -  Young Bobby Lamont of Gibsons was one of the big winners  in the Kid-^ Derby on Saturday  last, andis now the proud pos-  sessor-of a brand new bike.  He won the first in the  Miscellaneous    Fish    group   with    a  truly    prodigious    catch.    Bobby-  ,, came up^with a skate that tipped;  the-"scales at ��8"3?!Jpownds.'

His side-line comments  added greatly to the game.  The Firemen and Wilson  Creek will meet on Thursday  evening at 6:30 p.m. sharp, at  the Reserve Grounds in Sechelt.  This should be the top of the  season for the JMid-Peninsula  League. ~  -s-h**..  Gibson News  Mr. G.B. Smith of the S.S.  Catala staff dropped in to the  Coast News Office this week,  to meet friends and discuss the  weather. He has been surprised  at the many cool nights this  ���season, tripping up and down  the Coast.  The passenger business has  been very good for the season,  he says, and the holiday jaunt  is a very popular one with the  visitors from the United States.  A larger percent of our own  vacationers have been getting  'acquainted with their own coast  through these coastal cruises.  Smith is constantly amazed  at the changes on the Peninsula,  which he has known well for  years. After leaving us, he "was  bounu for Pender Harbour, to  meet friends.  C.P.

Golden Wedding  A very delightful afternoon  iand evening was had at Ithe  Jhjome of MrW and Mrs. Dave  Rees on Monday, August 31st.  celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary.  Beautiful flowers sent by Mrs.  John Kullander, Mrs. F. Piper,  Miss Grace Dobie and Mrs. A.  E. Ritchey were most tastefully  arranged by the latter.  Among the many congratulatory messages received was one  by wire from Tony Gargrave,  MLA.  Mrs. Margaret McNutt and  Mr. and Mrs. L,S, Jackson of  Wilson Creek were in attendance  Mr. Jackson in his inimitable  style moved the toast of the  evening to the happy couple,  suitably responded to by Mr.  Rees.

A small convoy of cars will  go to Port Mellon, and be ready  to return to Gibsons at. ten in  the morning and again at three  iri the afternoon, and to provide  transportation for those who  wish to visit Gibsons-  At three-thirty, there will be  a tea at Mrs. Fishers's Mariner  Cafe for the Port; Mellon Pulp  Queen and her attendants, and  the Gibsons May Queen and her  attendants. y~y   '':���"������  Visitors will &e'welcome to  j'shop around" in the stores,  and to visit with the other businesses, and generally become  conversant with the village.  The Legion Dance in the evening will provide a fitting finish  to a friendly day.  Gibsons is expecting there  will be many visitors down  from Port Mellon to look around  and visit with Gibsonites, and  become acquainted with what  ,the village has always looked  upon as the focal point of the  Peninsula.

The disposal area, on the slope  of" a steep ravine, is one from'  which Granthams Creek might  eventually be contaminated. Mr.  Mooney, who has been operating  this service for the residents and  business places, announces that  as soon, as the fire season permits,  ilgThe happy couple were the  recipients of numerous lovely  gifts.  A most happy and vivacious  spirit prevailed throughout the  evening.

It would have been nice, Bob  said, to have caught one of the  toig salmon, but there aren't  many running just now.  "But it's a good bike, and I'm  glad I got it!"

' More  Parents have at least as large a part to play as the child  himself, as to whether he really grasps his educational opportunity. In addition to caring for the physical needs of  their child, and providing the financial wherewithal, they  must also attend in considerable measure to the mental attitude of the child towards school and education.  There must be encouragement of the desire to learn as  much as possible, in the few,hours spent five days a week  at school. The recognition and acceptance of the authority  of the teacher an'd of the school generally in school matters  should be fostered. No child who attends class with a chip  on his shoulder is going to absorb much, nor is the child who  goes with an attitude of indifference. The child naturally  reflects his home attitude, so, if that is good, eager and cooperative, there will normally be little trouble.  No child should be sent to school simply that he may  be out from under foot for so many hours of the day, for the  convenience of his parents, and the relief from responsibility.  Schools are run at a great cost to the community, and the  child who really takes advantage of it is getting value for his'  parents' money. The child who simply "goes to school" because the country has long ago decided that all its citizens  should be to some extent literate, and insists upon exposing  children to education in hopes that they will "Catch" it, is  wasting a great deal of-time, effort and money.  So���Back To School it is, and may each student'get the  most from it that he is capable of absorbing.  The Fall Fair, arranged and  held by the Howe Sound Farmers'  Institute and the Women's Institute, is a big booster for this 3  Sechelt Peninsula. It is well  handled by the committees, and  well attended. The exhibits on  display are-of good quality and  workmanship. However, the Fair  could be better.  We offer not one word of criticism upon the work performed  or the manner of handling the  displays, or the judging of the  same. We have only praise for  the untiring efforts of those concerned.  What we do believe is heeded,  to keep the Fair successful for  the future is more general inter-'  est by the. people of the community, more exhibits entered in  each class to keep up the standards and the keen competition  (which after all is very necessary  to a Fair of this kind), and an  enlargement of the scope of the  Now, that The Road is in, the  modern pulp plant at Port Mellon is, we hope, the finale of a  long, and chequered career.

As  soon  as it was known Port Mellon had  started     up,    automatically    the  clamor for a road ensued., It is a  tribute to past governments that  a road was not put in as there  would have been long periods of  maintenance for no good reason.

Every community in every young country evidently  screams to its parent, government for roads. Highways,  secondary roads, and side roads are all a part of the scheme.  In British Columbia, there are still so very many miles of  roads awaiting original construction, reconstruction, and improvement that the task becomes prodigious.  The Government News for August reports 1^42.55 miles  of road under construction or re-construction at present, of  which the Port Mellon effort is a part. We believe that as  taxpayers it is in order to express the pious hope that (a) the  other few miles are completed a little faster, and (b) that  they do not cost any more per mile to build.  Public monies are more easily spent than raised, and we  who pay the piper should be assured that those tendering for  contracts as well as those awarding them are not suffering  from too much in the way of the astronomical in their computation of figures. -N  An Open Letter  ...

We would like to suggest from  our comfortable easy chair, with  our smoke curling undisturbed to  the ceiling, that there might well  be sections devoted to something  like a Pender Display, a Roberts  Creek display, a Sechelt or a Hopkins display, in any one class, or  in a group of entries. CouLd there  not be a community display of,  say, a. dozen specified kinds of  flowers, vegetables, items of  homecraft, and art? Could not  stalls  be   set  up   for  these,  and  . the arranging and decorating pt  same be the work of members of  that community?

The   Fair   should   grow,   from  ��year to year, and as we see it, the  only way it can expand is to interest other communities, and to  expand the range of classes. We  admit to being artists at thinking  up more work for someone else  to do, but we do believe in the  Fall Fair as a community endeavour, and if more individuals  in the community will interest  themselves and help with ideas  too, the Fair cannot help but  grow and continue successful.

That way, they say, you avoid being caught off-  base by an unseasonable drop in temperature, and you can take  advantage of off-season prices. Furthermore, you can get it all at  once and bone-dry to boot.  Of course, the good old summertime leaves many people short  of funds. If that is your problem, call on Tom Larson, manager of  the Gibsons Bank of Montreal, and discuss a B of M CoaJ Loan*  Its cost is very low. It's convenient, too, because you repay by  easy instalments that can stretch as far ahead'as next April.  It's the B of M's business to lend you money, if it is good  business for you to borrow. Remember, when you ask for a loan  at the B of M, you do not ask a favour.

In 1937 it was  forced to ��� suspend only to start ���  up in August the same year. In  1939 the Vancouver Kraft interests were sold and it was then  idle for two years.  Some time later the Sorg. Pulp  Co. appeared and they ran the  mill for some considerable time  and spent the most money on rehabilitation of any. Once more it  closed until the present owners  took over and finalized the modernization which we all hope  will continue.  This last development brought  the^road into full focus.

The great fir, spruce, and cedar  that came down to the beach,.and  the roiling boiling sea life that  must have been in those days. It  was no doubt a good place for  the Indians to get a living which  explains their reserve there now.  Date Pad  Sept 5 ��� Gibsons Port Mellon Get Aquainted Day.

Thursday. Sept. 3, 1953    The Coast News  3  %  Working in those parts in 1915,  I encountered the saga of the Indian versus the English battle  at the mouth of Dakota Creek.  One old chap had pre-empted  there, and had put up the usual  type of buildings and cleared  some ground. He did not like the  Indians anyhow, and being one  of the^alt of the earth, was very  definite about property rights,  etc., and he got into his head that  the beach and the .water were his  too. It was the usual thing for  the Indians to get an easy fish  by prowling after dark with a  canoe and a torch attached to the  bow and spear a few steelhe'ads.  These are one fish that will come  up to a light. i,  Our friend had warned t��hem  off several times before, and^this  particular night he thought they  were a bit brusque with him, so  he unloaded two barrels of bird-  shot into them and the war was  on. ...   v  One can readily imagine the  uproar and confusion. Anyway  away they went, to be back immediately with an old 44 rifle  with which they beseiged the  shack and fired a few rounds into the walls. The old man showed  me the slugs he had dug out  afterwards.  The battle was a draw, as the  old. man nailed up the shack and  departed before dawn by rowboat  and did not return for 5 years.  The Indians by then had given  up coming to that reserve.  This page should not be turned  without paying., homage to a  grand old couple 'who lived in  that area for many years. They  came from a family that is so  well known that like old wine  needs no bush from us.   '  -These : were .Capt. and Mrs.  George Cates.

Last Thursday, Selma Park reversed previous results by holding Wilson Creek scoreless in a  good well played game. Eric  Lindwall, who pitched the shutout for Selma, and Bernie Has-  kins with his smart fielding were  the outstanding players.  From the fan point - oL view,  Don Caldwell for Wilson Creek  .pitched a good game, and had he  had the team support, the score  would have been closer.  YAn unhappy fumble or two for  Wilson Creek, some weakness at  first and second, met by snappy  play by Selma under their new  coach,; Chick Moorehouse, spelled  "Win" for Selma.  Crippled players on the Pender  team did not prevent them holding the' big end of the 8-7 score  with the.Sechelt Firemen, played  at the Reserve Grounds in Sechelt last Tuesday.  The Firemen played hard, but  not well enough. Pender, despite  a first baseman with "ah arm injury received at the Regatta, held  their own handily, and despite  the basketball score, showed better form.

Sept. 9th. - sM p.m.  Anglican Church Hall, Gibsons  Only one car can be the leader! Only one car can be the favorite! Only  one car can be the most-sought, most-bought car in Canada! That car,  year-in, year-oytf 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 wait-  ing patiently to get their Chevrolet. No other car will do! Surely this is  proof of Chevrolet's superiority . . . and its unchallenged place in the  hearts of Canadian motorists. ;  C-2052C Roberts Cfeei  by Madge Newman  After spending two months  in VGH Mrs. J.

C. actually  dropped from 31.5 per cent in 1949  to about 25.5 in 1953.  For   Canada   as   a   whole   the   Socialist   CCF   vote   appears   to   have'  ���shrunk from  13.38  obtained in  1949  to   approximately   12.3   per   cent   in  1953.  Once more, Socialist strength was;  drawn almost wholly from two provinces ��� Saskatchewan and British  Columbia. East of the Great Lakes,  in the industrialized heart of Canada and throughout the Maritimes,  only two Socialists were elected,  one in Ontario and one in Nova!  Scotia. Alberta, like Quebec, New  Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and  Newfoundland, elected none.  Any assumption that increased  Socialist representation in Parliament was the result of greater  popular support is NOT borne out  by the facts. The trend in Canada  continues away from the theory of  government-run-every thing.  BRITISH  COLUMBIA , FEDERATION   OF  TRADE & INDUSTRY  ���  i  Opened byy,the,president, Mrsr  E.J.

Alan-FoulkeSj-RCAF, stationed  at St. Huberts," Quebec, leaves  for Germany this^week. His wife  the former Mamie Boulter to  whom he was ^married in June,  will remain in Gloverdale with  her parents until his return.  Alan is the son of Mrs. Eileen  , Foulkes and is well known on  the Peninsula.  Funeral service was held in  Burrard Funeral Chapel on the  27th for John Mann who had  been a resident on Beach Ave.  for the past five years. He leaves  a son and two daughters."  The 30th turned out to be  somewhat rough and choppy  day for the local salmon Derby,  sponsored by the Legion. There  were many participants and also  interested spectators at the  weighing in. Mrs. Robert Cum-  mings did a good business with  i' the coffee stall. "Of the prize  winners Herb Berdahl came 1st  with a salmon weighing 91b 15  f- oz., and was awarded a glass  rod and reel. John Mathew's  fish, 81b V_oz., won him a cane  rod and Joyce Nield won a car  blanket with a fish weighing  71b 8oz.  One summer visitor who is  not complaining about the lack  of. fish is Ed Pinkerton, who  with his wife and two boys, is  vacationing on Beach Ave.  Without the; aid of^gaf. or net?-  he successfully landed a 31 lb  Spring. But not on the 30th.  Stan Fallowes also chose the  wrong day to haul in a 19  pounder.  The garden furniture, consisting of actable and 4 chairs, raffled, by the Improvement Society  to pay ofi the loan on- the fire  truck, was won by ..Mrs. C F  Haslam. Drawing for. the furn-  iture took place at the Hall*  Board dance Saturday night.  According to one summer visitor from California, the curve  approaching Twin Bridges,  should be named Suicide Point.  He thinks this part of the road1  approaching from the West, is  the most dangerous of any on  the Peninsula and he prophesies plenty of trouble when the'  rainy season starts.

My acquaintance with Mr.  Cates ripened somewhat when I  nearly  drank his glass eye,  and  *" this was the way of it.  The eye was a bit of a nuisance  no doubt, and George would ease  the situation a bit by putting the  ��ye in a glass of water and wear  a patch for the time being. It was  S hot day and we came in to use  the phone and while waiting fo*  connection we needed a drink and  there was no water.  Mrs. Cates said George was  down at the wheel, which meant  the small hydro he had, and maybe there would be water .soon".  However the kitchen was some*  what dark and I saw this glass  with water in it on the kitchen  drainboard and tipped it up.  While saying something to Mrs.  Cates, I saw the horrorstruck look  come on her face just before the  glass eye rolled from the bottom  of the glass and touched my lips.  At this moment Mr. Cates came in  and took in the situation at a  glance and said, "Mr. I should  have been in a hell of a fix if you  had swallowed it."  They had the summer resort  known as Seaside Park for many  years and both Union and CPR  Steamships took large outings up  there from time to time.  Those things are of the past.

John Little Jr. of Wilson  Creek, found that his application  to become a member of the RCMP  was unsuccessful on account of  his youth, however John is now  working for the Forestry department, and likes it fine.  The Wilson Creek ball club received the shock of their lives,  when, in the second game of the  best of three, against Selma Park,  they were on the receiving end  of a shut-out. Selma tightened up  every department, and on the  night's play, looked as though  they would be the first, team to  have their names inscribed on the  Osborne trophy. The third and  final   game   completely   reversed  the picture, although Selma took  a two-run lead early in the game,  it was very obvious, that they  were not a consistant team. Although they played good hall,  they didn't have what it takes to  win the round. We must congratulate Wilson Creek in winning two games out of three, and  wish them'the best of luck in the  finals. T think special mention  should be. made of Tommy Reynolds, and Eddie Lenieuix, pitcher and right field, these two  stalwarts, did give Yeoman service.  Johnson; cup and saucer, Mr. J.
