R.E. Somers, Minister of Lands as follows:  '    "Re:   trespass    ban   on   land  lease permit twenty one here.

The   hearing   above   referred  to is the culmination of a long  cruiser "Shutter-Bug," has' really  hung up a record for sailor's luck.  Ken was cruising off Vancouver  Bay, when the Shutter-Bus; went  over a half submerged log. Immediately after this, water was heard  pouring in below. Ken and his  crew were able to- locate the leak  at once, but were horrified to discover that the pvopeLev and shaft  were, missing, and the water was  rushing in through the hole left.by  the . shaft's disappearance. They  were able to plug the- hole quickly.  Retracing their course, these luckiest  of all   sailors  found  the  prop.. , Kurluk Electric.   Both firms antici-  th'e Village" Center at.

The Shutter-Bug was towed in to  rjaddock's boat ways, by the 63-  foot "Winnifred," to have the shaft  straightened and the prop re-set.

The general-  tone is that there s more- reasons  for optimism. Both matters wilt  be kept before the Provincial  Government until action is  taken. '   ���'        ~' -*��  Pen'der  Harbour's   first   Harbour    Master,    Fred    Claydon,  reported    on    his    first    yearns,  activity. He stated that the Federal   Authorities   have  at   long  last  recognized   the   importance  of the  Harbour. They have  informed him that over 100 major  craft have used the Harbour in  the   past    year.    Mr.    Claydon  pointed out that 126 cruisers of  all types had berthed in'^ender?  Harbour  during  the   recent  Ir?-'  terhational   Power   Boat   races;  in   a   two  day   period.   He  was  warmly    commended     by    the  Eoard for his services.  Mr. Stan Bowdler, Corress  pondent for the Coast Newsy  was introduced as a -new  member.  Road To  St. Francis  Peninnila likely  H<>r>p is' the word for St. Francis  Peninsula these days, and accorcf-  jnu to Ray Murdoch, the Iloarl is  now almost a certainty.  The survey was completed last  summer, and now it seems that the  almost three hundred people will  have a road of some useful kind for  their use.  A figure of . approximately sixteen hundred dollars has been  named for the road on the Peninsula itself, and for th - " -w level  bridge over the Canoe P.-.rfs a suin-  of $20,000 was mentioned as having:  been allotted to the job. The timber for this bridge, it is understood^  is to be cut hy local mills as a voluntary  contribution.  The District Engineer has been?  over the survey, and according to>  him, it seems that the new road will  follow approximately the route of  the old trail. "While no multi-lane  Tifgn^ray is (ooketl for, a passable-  road shouM result, which -will ms&ei  a great difference to thr pcop>e- ef  St. Francis PcoiJmtla in the ��sr-  Bay at Gibsons, and small loggers known as , the Resident  Loggers' Association, the Trustees of which held a lease  entitling them to unload and  boom logs in this area, subject  to certain conditions.  The lease having been allowed  to lapse, a hearing was held-in  the Court House in Vancouver,  tc consider the issuance of  further lease. This hearing was  attended ;by Representatives of  the Associated Beach Property  Owners, by several Loggers, a  Representative of.the Farmers'  Institute, and an Exporter, all  of whom gave evidence at the  hearing.  To date, the results of this  hearing have not been available  but will 'be published when received, it is hoped that a final  settlement will be made which  will end this long standing  dispute.  NEW RECORD FOR  PENDER HARBOUR  One of the largest sports fishing  catches made in the Harbour for  some years ��� was taken just off  Irvine's Landing this week-end  when Rene Mantha, a machine operator on the new highway, successfully landed a 62%-pound ling  cod on a 20-pound test line. Mantha  was fishing with Fred Fletcher of  Garden Bay in Fletcher's 12-ft.  power boat. He was trolling with  live herring when he hooked into  the big cod. It took the combined  efforts of both men to lift the fish  into' the boat after twenty minute?  of strenuous work with the reel hy  Mantha. After filleting, the huge  fish supplied a substantial dinner  for six families.  FIRST LOGGING  TRUCKS ON NEW HIGHWAY  The Pender Harbour to Agememnon Channel stretch of the new  Powell River to Vancouver combined ferry and highway was put  to its first commercial use this  week when the Wood Logging Company trucked a half-million feet, of  choice timber from the Ruby Lake  area along the new read for seven  miles to the salt chuck at Klien-  dale.  El is expected that, the new business  will  open  about  the  end  of  August.

The  Granthams Hill has long been a  bug-bear of both motorists anc!  ���home owners, and the biggest nuisance was the huge clouds of dust  raised by the traffic there. Now,  the cars make the hill with* pleasure, and the residents are not  choked with the dust of their passing.

There are  numbers of projects which could be started, or aided, for the  benefit of the whole area, and to which, in the long run, a  ferge number of our citizenry contributes.  The Editor invites comment, from both the operators  and the citizenry.  be nn  j  There has been much forehead furrowing by the Executive Board of the Elphinstone Branch of the VON, and the  trouble seems to be financial, in the main*.  Xkat the VON fills an urgent need on ithe Sunshine Coasi  cannot be disputed by anyone. That it 'can operate without  financial support seems to be the idea of many.  The grants from the Government are minute, in comparison with what would be paid if all the patients needing  (treatment were to be hospitalized. This matter has been  pointed out again and again, to the Government, in an effort  to have the grant substantially increased, to meet the ever  rising costs of operating. Salaries to the Nurses are higher,  eosts of equipment, drugs, housing, and car upkeep are much  feigner, costs of obtaining relief services are higher, than any  of these used to be. ,  Naturally, then, there must be greater, not less, local  support for the VON. Those who 'benefit most from the  service are actually least able to contribute, or to pay for the  services, and yet many of them do so, at no one knows what  sacrifice.  This year, the financial difficulties are greater than they  ever been, and the committee is faced with the possibility  of having to close down this so necessary service.  We have heard that the drives for funds locally have  iwQ'tbeen as productive as usual, and far below what is needed  for continuing operation. There are more .people in th%area  tlian before, and more people on salaries Hhan. eve�� before.  Surely from these increased numbers, there should be more  iielp, not less.

What sums wlil  foe used in organizing something else, when those expenses  for the VON have already been met ?  It is to be* hoped that before this service is let go for  want of financial support, people will look very closely into  the whole matter, and decide whether the non-existamt, but  possible substitute service will cost more, will be as well  supported, or will give the area-a service comparable to that  possible through the VON..,.   ������ ���- ���'     ��� ��� ���;��� -  tl  I  Fir Slabs & Short Ends  Pack Up'-At-'-Sucre 3  NORTH   ROAD.   GIBSONS.  LOGGERS' TALES  "Dear Land Of Home  by   L.S.J.  Sibelius's famous piece of music  recalls to me at least, the story of  the Finns at Gibsons Heights.  The Hintsa's, Wirens, Ruis,  Wilkman, Wilander, the Swede  John Kullander, who with the farms  of Irgens and Steinbrunner made  the top of the hill a well-kept peasant place. Their whole mode cf life  was different from the folk who  had logged, squatted, and carried  on in any old way before.  They all came together here  about 1906.' Some had been to the  Malcolm Island settlement which  evidently did not meet their needs,  although I never heard them mention the reason they left. Their native land was lost to them and was  only a memory. They all had radical ideas and this was where I  heard for the first time the "Red  Flag" and the "International"  which is also a dim memory in the  district.  Thejr had a love for the land and  their small farms wrested from  stumps and brush and their livestock were models of good husbandry in every respect. They were  good versatile woods m e n and  gained some fame as rigging men  and fallars.

It is sad, but  true, that nowadays parents do  not seem to have the time or  the   patience   necessary.  How   many   times   have   you  and  I  heard   an  impatient  Mother say "just wait until you  go to school. They'll teach you".  Further,  in  reply to  a letter  from   Miss   Maclntyre   in   your  last  issue:   It   all   sounds, very  yV'iice for teachers to live in the  country   on    fresh    air   and    a  pleasing  locality,  but  it is  not  ygood enough. Our teachers (and  this   includes   Music   Teachers)  have a very important and responsible job, for they are building   our   future  citizens. Therefore, I say they should be well  paid, and certainly those in the  country should have equal pay  with those in the city. In' most  cases those in the country have  several  grades   to   teach,   also,  the majority of these are young  people, a  lot  of them married,  and  trying to  build   or  buy   a  home of their own.  My sympathy is all with the  teachers, for at best they have  a thankless job, and if only  parents would do their part in  the home as consistently as our  teachers do theirs in the schools,  everything would be O.K.

Their hospitality and kindness I  well remember especially when it  came to coffee time. Their coffee  making is worth a comment here:  Rn-st the green bean, then roasting  tnem and finally the grinding in a  little hand mill (just try and find  one now) with the right amount, for  the brew. The boiling water then  poured on to steep for some time,  no boiling. Sugar in lumps to use  as blotters between the teeth, thick  cream, with perhaps a light cake  made without leaven.

Mackenzie to the members pf  the Truck Loggers' Association  Who met Thursday, July 15th in  Vancouver, reiterated the Association's poM-cy for the immediate implementation of a  Royal Commission of Inquiry  into all phases of the Province's  forest  economy.  Mr. Mackenzie based this  renewed belief for an inquiry  on the following statement cone  tained ini his report to the members. He stated that a previous  Fro v i n c i a Is Government had  passed an amendment to the  Forest Act providing roughly  two million dollars for the purpose of openiing up access roads  into stands of timber now rated  to be inaccessible to the aver  age small logger im public  working circles.  In the interior  we know  of  several cases wihere the Forest  Service   has   opened   up   these  access roads which are paid for  by the small logger on a stumpage    basis.    However,    we   are  assured by the   Forest Service  that    in    the    public    working  circles   om   the   coast   not   one  dollar has  been  spent for   the  opening   of   roads   to    provide  ;access  to  crown." timber  under  provision of this new Act. The  Minister    of    Forests    has    admitted to us that he does not  know   when    money   will    be  available  for   this  purpose.   In  other - words,    Mr.    Mackenzie  continiued,  the   Provincial  Gov  ernment   is   not   in   a   position  iipjancially to open up and provide   access   roads   in   pubblic  working circles on the coast.  This forces the small operators into a never-ending series  of. dog-fights for small - timber  stands on the fringes of public  working circles, leading to the  inevitable result of going out of  business- orrgoing.-.broke.4Also;  if a licensee of the Management  License is going to be restricted  to his allotted cut and desires  additional supplies to meet his  production quota, then he must  do so through independent  operators. Where does the independent operator get his timber,  if the government realises to  open up access roads in public  working circles? We yare faced  with a serious situation, that  needs in vestigia ting, Mr. Mackenzie concluded.  Sechelt  SOLNIK  SHELL SERVICE  ALL   MOTOR   &  RUNNING   REPAIRS.

There were over flifty guests at  the party, committe members  and members of the congregation, Assembled in the hall to  bid the newcomers welcome.  Peoples Warden, Dr. Duncan  McColl, gave the address of  welcome and after much hilarity caused by his remarks,  presented Mr. .and Mrs. Milton  with a pantry shower, which  had been collected by the members of the congregation.

Balls & Strikes  By  CHUCK  TOMPKINS  By the time this edition is out  the semi finals and one game  of tlie finals will be things of  the past and you can: bet your  last dime it didn't come easy  to   the   winners.  The victors to date are the  , teams ' who got a break and  made the most of it, and the  losers���well, they made a mistake at the wTong time and  that was' it.  Wilson Creek got off to a  five run) first inning and edged  out Selma Park 9 to 7 in a free  hitting game Sunday afternoon.  Port Mellon squeezed out the  Firemen 4 to 3 in the nightcap,  which was a good tight ball  game. Both were good games  and the losers certainly have  nothing to be ashamed of as it  was real playoff ball all the  way.  So its down to the wire between' Port Mellon and Wilson  Creek to see who meets Woodfibre. Whoever it is, it is up to  the rest of the Peninsula to  forget past grievances and get  ini and back our representative  to the playoffs.  We can't expect too much in  our first year, but no matter  how far we go we shall be all  the wiser next year in knowing  exactly what kind of clubs we  are up against.  The way I see it is, if Wilson,  Creek goes, Woodfibre needs  some good chuckers as Wilson  Creek have a lot of able hitters  in their lineup.  If Port Mellon goes, then  Woodfibre will need the hitters,  to crack that solid Port Mellon  defence along with "Muscles"  Kuwica if he chucks like he did  against the Firemen last Sunday night.  I am not picking any stars  out of these games as you can i  see that everyone was playing |  good ball. I think Tommy Reynolds was outstanding for  Wilson Creek while Johnny  Clayton was the big * gun for  Selma.  "Muscles" and Sandy Wiren  did the trick for Port ellon,  while Jim Drummond and Bob  Norris were keeping the Firemen in the battle.

Phone 53  Gibsons  �����||9��MW*M��N|  Speed in the wrong, place is the  downfall of many a motorist, as is  borne out by the happenings in  Magistrate Johnston's Court last  week.  William Crawford of Vancouver,  for exceeding the speed limit at  Selma Park, was fined 810.00 and  cost. Thomas "Woodman of Vancouver., for driving at 55 m.p.h. in  Wilson Creek also paid ten dollars  and costs.  In an ex-party hearing, Oswald  Hardy of Vancouver was fined ten  dollars and costs for fishing in  Halfmoon Bay Lake without the  necessary license.  James Wilson of Burnaby, having  driven' at 55v m.p.h. near Sechelt,  was fined ten dollars and costs.  The same offence near Wilson  Creek drew another ten dollar fine  for Harold B. Pearson of Vancouver.  Charles Grant of Whiteroek got  into difficulty on several counts, as  a result of lack of care while driving, and using a borrowed driver's  license. For driving without due  care and attention, weaving back  and forth on the highway, he drew  a fine of ten dollars and costs. For  driving with a license not. his own,  but that of Arthur Cook, which he  had "borrowed" without the owner's  knowledge., he paid a fine of five  dollars, and charged with driving  without a current driver's license,  lie was fined $25.00 and costs.  James Wilensky of Port Mellon  pleaded not guilty to a charge of  driving without due care and attention, having run into a car driven  by George E. Webb, on Reid Road.  He was found guilty, however, and  fined $20.00 and costs.  In Magistrate Hambly's Court at  Pender Harbour, Mrs. J .Cameron  case adjourned for a week, in order  to procure legal advice. They were  charged   with   infractions   of   the  Fish Of The Month  Fishing Regulations.  Johnny Haddock has reported  some very fine fish have been  weighed in at his-wharf at Pender  Harbour, and the delighted fishei'-  men have not only caught beauties,  but have garnered excellent prizes  besides.  The May winner for the Fish of  the Month contest sponsored by  the Haddock Boat Rentals was Stan  Burns, of North Vancouver, who  took the prize with an 11% pound  Spring. He took home as well a  handsome tackle box.  The June Fish of the Month was  a small one, ,.iust 4% pound blue-  back, but it won the fisherman,  Norman Brook of the Department  of Welfare a fine landing net.  To date, of course, it is impossible  to name the winner of the leather-  bound fishing creel for July's biggest fish but Bob Knowles of North  Vancouver has a 20V& pound spring  recorded, and is feeling lucky.  August is still coming up, and then  there will be an award for the biggest fish of the season to some  lucky Isaac Walton..  is  Also nappe  by Albert Crowhurst  Ross Teskey of the North  Road, w-as crossing Hecate  Straights in his boat, when he  was rammed amidships by a  tug. Ross's boat was cut in two  and sank throwing the three  men. aboard her into the water.  The tug picked, them up half  drowned but otherwise O.K.  Understand Ross had everything  insured but collision.  Sorry to hear that Danny  Propp broke his arm, understand that he fell off his stilts.  Would like to welcome Miss  Latimer back to Gibsons, she  has been_ teaching in the interior the - last few years, she  will be visiting here for a few  days.

A reception was held in the  York Roojm at the Georgia  Hotel. The toast to' the Bride  was given by Holger Enemark,  and congratulatory telegrams,  were read from Denver, Gait  Ontario, California, Quesnel,  and Swift Current.

Her cors'age was baby  Vanda orchids. The couple will  reside in Port Mellon on their  return.  Guests aboard the yacht "Fleetwood" found the weather and the  fishing at Pender Harbour a pleasant   change   after   Alaska,   where  they had been for the past ten. days.  Mr.   Sam   Cohen's   guests .from  California were delighted with'the  sun and warmth, as the yacht was  moored at Hassan's Landing.
