Many residents no longer  swim, many of them no longer fish.  With badminton and bowling, soft ball and tennis, there  is a field of recreation for a limited few. Now. with the  addition of the first golf course on the Peninsula, more  .people will be able to have recreation with a modest expenditure of energy,  The Pacific Coast and lits  fishing problems are entirely  different from those of the East.  Ground fish, on this coast is  only a minor industry compared to salmon, with the exception of halibut, which I  believe ranks second in import-  annce and although a ground  fish is classed apart, and is  controlled by treaty and mu��rt  be   taken   only   by   the  use   of  The sports, or recreation, field has scarcely been touched  nooks.  here. lit needs more development in all directions, and with  such development, we believe t here will be not only more  tourists staying happily with us, and leaving a little of their  vacation funds with us, but there will be more healthy participation in local events by residents, young and old, and less  ���of the objectionable type of seeking after diversion.  , The country lends itself to the development of sports  facilities, and the climate encourages their use. Let us hope  that another mind has imagination to think up another f orm  of activity. /  Phone  Sechelt   64  The halibut fishing at present  is utilized to its utmost, with  the possible exception of area  4 (Bering Sea) with the present  vessels already in use.,There is  no room for expansion in .'.'this  industry as the entire yearly  quota is taken in three months  and held in freezers. The ad-  dXitm of these 15 new vessels  into this . already overcrowded  industry wtill only worsen  matters and will not lessen,the  cost to the  consumer. ';  The drag-fleet is confined to  a comparatively narrow continental shelf on this coast with'  few outlying banks and in m!ost  places plunges to depths of Oyer  1,000 fathoms within a very  few miles of our coast and  there is no commercial fishing  below   400  fathoms.  The ground fish stocks are  already badly depleted and this  industry is steadily worsening  in both fishing and marketing  without the addition of any  new vessels.  Tuna fishing is no longer of  <any importance and from the  Fisheries Research Board... of  Canada I quote: "There is little  hope of ever establishing a  successful Tuna Fishery on this  Coast" ' The only successful  tuna fishing today is carried  ���on in Equatorial Waters ;and  if my information is correct the  above-mentioned 15 vessels are  too small and not suitable.  Herring fishing is a very  important Fishery, but pis  strictly an inshore operation,'  carried out in protected waters  during tlie fall and winter  months. Under tlie terms of the'  Permit granted, these new  vessels cannot engage in this  fishiing without forfeiting the  25 percent duty refund. It will  be interesting to see if this  takes   place.

The  above stated facts add up to  only one conclusion, these 15  American vessels are being  imp cried into' Canada for one  purpose, to engage in salmon  fishing in a race out into the  Pacific in an attempt to secure  our share of our fish in the face  of increasing competition from  our American neighbours. This  has been brought about by the  decline in the Alaskan salmon  which no doubt is being  affected by . the entry of the  Japanese into the North Pacific  Salmon  Fishery.  When Canada became a signatory to the North Pacific  Fisheries Treaty, the Canadian  people were told that our  salmon industry was being  fully protected. Such is not now  proving to be the fact.  Japan still remains a distant  but potential threat in mid  Pacific, but the immediate  threat now is not the Japanese  but   the    American   fishermen.  This was disclosed on March  22nd   of   this   year,   when   our  vessels.  The immediate result.of this  race is drastic closures of the  waters adjacent to our salmon  spawning areas. An example of  this are the already announced  regulations pertaining to the  Fraser River and gulf waters-  as recently announced by the  Fisheries   Department.  To show the far reaching  effect of the signing of ' the  Pacific Treaty, a close scrutiny  of the Fishery Regulations for  District No. 1 and in particular  area 29 will reveal the fact that  the commercial salmon net  fishing <is almost wiped out in  the vicinity of Gibsons and  Sechelt. As the regulations now  stand, there will be no commercial net fishing of any  importance prior to October  14th of this year. There will  then be 8 days of good fishing  and approximately 12 days of.  medium to poor fishing till the  season closes around November  20th.  Area 28 (Howe Sound) will  probably remain open during  the closiing of area 29. but for  the past several years Howe  Sound has been1 ofv little importance as far as .Gibsons is  concerned. v  In effect these closures will  result in a loss of over $20,000  in Gibsons and Sechelt areas.  Last year the westerly portion  of area 29 produced over  400,000 pounds of salmon from  are:i29 withdrawn in order to  try and save the local salmon  fishing from the then impending closures. On account of the  poor response from local trades  organizations, I am not too  hopeful of the outcome. T-�� date  I have received no word.  In closing I will state that  the people of Qanada have one  trump card, we have tlie spawning beds. Unfortunately this is  overshadowed by the threat of  Hydro Electric Power as outlined in the Vancouver Daily  Province issues of April 23rd | 3780 Gamble St..  and May 11th 1954.  If in the event that our salmon  is taken in great quantities far  out at sea so as to cause the  returning 'stocks of spawners in  our streams and rivers1 to  dwindle, we will play right into  the hands of tlie hungry power  people, who' wish even now  to dam the mighty Fraser River  at Hell's Gate.

Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Hill,  Paicines, California, and Mrs.  M. Bell, Seattle, are the guests  of their cousin and sister, Mrs.  Ruth Mitchell. It is interesting  to see this country through the  eyes of visitors. These folk are  also related to the Gallifords!  and Bates, the Whitworths and-  the Newmans.  We were canny enough to  choose a perfect May day on  which to show them our local  beauty spots. Our leisurely trip  to Irvines Landing and return  took most of the day, for every  few miles the scenery had to  fc>e captured by Bruce's movie'-  caanera so that the kids back  home may share this trip with  them. Pseudo California type  bungalows held no interest for  them but the Sechelt Inn with  its old English air intrigued  ,them ��nd- the hospitable host,  Mr. Duncan, kindly allowed us  to poke among the treasures in  the old fashioned sitting room.  He showed us through the big,  homey kitchen and the cheerful  dining room overlooking the  sea, and let us glimpse the Jarge  square bedrooms upstairs.  "This  is  what  we  like"   our'  visitors .exclaimed.   "Keep your  English    atmosphere,    or    your  Indian   background,   but don't,  DON'T,  instil  anything Califor-  nian    or    American    into    this  Peninsula.

'Especially''  added   Bruce,   drooling,   "raspberry  and  blackberry jam."  Lunch was eaten, and more  pictures taken, at Halfmoon  Bay Lake. Hoffar's domain at  Secret Cove was the next stop,  and it was with difficulty that  we dragged the guests away  from that lovely spot after both  moving and still pictures had  been' taken, some purchases  made at the store and "the time  of da y'' p asise d w/ith the  gracious owners.  St. Mary's Hospital, come  upon so unexpectedly after the  drive 'around the picturesque  Garden Bay Lake, and the  chapel nestling under"' the trees  beside it, made another "take"  for their, collection of travel  pictures'. The friendly folk at  Irvines Landing store, the air  saturated with the sweet scent  of purple lilacs growing so pro-  hfically all about and the little  boats putt-putting in, the harbour, all, conspired to form an  unforgettable memory of our  beautiful Sunshine Coast.  The most unforgettable and  important picture, according to  Bruce, and the one which did  not get taken, was a round,  firm, fully-packed quart jar of  luscious', horn e-g r o w n raspberries.

SUPPORT       APPRECIATES  VON  SERVICE  There are a considerable  number of the parents complaining of juvendles loitering  around the street corners and  the cafes of Gibsons. The  Citizens of Gibsons also corn-  lain of the lack of interest in  clubs and so forth by us, but:  We started the Junior Baseball Team, this team is now an  the Junior Peninsula Lefegue,  but may have to fold because  of the lack of interest shown  to us by the Parents.  We started this team by ourselves and all matters concerning our team have been  unnoticed by you. Now that we  are in the League we need  transportation . to our games;  especially to those ini Pender  Harbour and in Sechelt. We  need money to supply us with  the necessary equipment, the  important need is for a coach,  j or a sponsor who would act as  I a coach, or both. It is true that  the Firemen have donated five  dollars and the use of their  bats, but that is hardly enough  support to keep the team alive.  Every Wednesday at six  thirty wis have a practice; if  you can call it that. It's-not that  there ds a lack of interest by  the boys, or that we have a poor  team, the reason is, we need an  organizer. If some one could  come out that night and coach  or any night that would suit  him, the team would be very  grateful. And someone who  could supply us with transportation to the games would also  be welcomed.  Jack Whitaker and Jack Red-  It gives me great pleasure to  learn there was to be a drive  for funds towards the operation  of the VON in this district.'  Situated as we are without  a hospital I" wonder if we appreciate what it means to have  the VON Nurse at our service  with all her efficiency.  I can speak from personal  experience having had their  soothing ministratiois and use  of their equipment for some  months. It means much to be  bathed, the sheets lhanged, etc.,  when one is bedridden. So I  sincerely hope the drive will be  well supported.  Mrs. E.L. Kent.  man have shown what they can  do for the Sechelt boys and I'm  sure there are mem Hike that in  Gibsons to help us.  |     On   the   game   of  May   16th,  i there   was   a    measely    crowd  attending, we collected a dollar  twenty-six.   Now   what   can   a  team do  with that    We advertised   this   game   but   still   we  weren't   compliimentefcl   with   a  ; decent crowd.  When our next game is in  Gibsons, which will be very  soon, if our team holds out,  come on out, theyr'e good games  an'd I'm sure you won't be disappointed as we now are, in  fact you won't be disappointed  at all. You'll be glad you came!  Geo.  Slinn,  Captain.  Ir. Duncan Passes  n Shaughnessy  Mr. James Duncan of Hopkins  Landing passed away on- May  24th in Shaughnessy Hospital.
