This truck has1 been a projected! purchase for many  months, as a small vehicle to  attend small fires which require only a small amount of  equipment.  Commissioner Ballentine reported on the ditch and culvert  clearance. He advised that the  Burns road be closed to traffic  to permit placing of gravel  ballast.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of Mr.  and Mrs. E. E. Wallis. Mr. Jack  Shields proposed the toast to the  bride.  . The bride's bouquet, tossed from  the .stairs, was caught by Bev.  Gray.  For her travelling outfit, Mrs.  Sleep chose a gray corded nylon  dress with white shortie coat and  white accessories. The young  couple will reside at Abbotsford.  Mrs. F. Heron came from Abbotsford to attend the Sleep-Ross wedding. Mrs. Heron, for several -years  a teacher at East Roberts, had  Maureen as a pupil, and is now  associated with her on the staff of  their present school.  Hotel For  Garden Bay  Work has already begun on  the. new hotel which is being  built at Madeira Park. There  will be sixteen guest rooms on  two floors, a large parking area  and a service station in connection. The hotel will be fully  modern in every respect.  Mrs. Fenchon, who operates  the hotel at Irvine's. Landing,  is in: charge of this new hotel.  All building materials and  supplies are being placed on  the site by R.

He will be in office  at St. Mary's from August 26th  to November 26th, when he  leaves to take up an important  appointment.  Dr. Hichens is leaving to take  an advanced course in Gynecology at one ~of the larger  American Hospitals, and "will  leave within a few days of Dr.  Playfair's arrival.  At the last meeting of the  Hospital Committee's Executive, Chairman Johstone stated  that there was a gradual improvement in the financial  situation.  The operating statement for  the first six months of this year  shows a smaller loss than has  been the case for some time.  In this, St. Mary's he states,  compares favorably with any  similar hospital in B.C.  Inhalator Crew  Attends Local Man  Responding to an alarm at  about 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday  evening, the inhalator squad of  the Gibsons Fire Department  attended Mr. George Pye of  Soames Point, who was suffering from a heart attack.  Dr. McColl was called from  Sechelt'in the absence of Dr.  Inglis.  The inhalator and operator  stood by until seven o'clock on  Wednesday morning, after administering oxygen twice  during this period. Mr. Pye is  reported much improved on  Wednesday morning.  Prize Winners  At Gibsons Fair  On exhibition at the Gibsons Fair  last week-end were oil paintings  of local scenes, the work of Mrs.  Gladys Kemp who spent July in  the Funnell cottage. Paintings included homes of the Harold Kennedy's and Waldo Campbell's and  scenes  outside  the'cottage.  Congratulations, to Mrs. Jack Eldred who emerged - from the Fair  with seven firsts, seven seconds  and a couple of specials., including  the snappy sweater presently being  modelled by Jeff Cumming. (Now  let him say he knitted it himself!)  New Publisher  For Coast News  After several weeks of negotiating, and three.visits to the office  and plant of The Coast News at  Gibsons, Mr. Fred Cruice of Regina  has purchased the newspaper, and  will assume the publication and  management of The Coast News as.  of September first.  Mr. Cruice was a member of the  staff of The Regina Leader-Post  since he joined it as telegraph  editor. Prior to this appointment,  he occupied various Editorial positions with the Winnipeg Tribune.  During the war, Mr. Cruice was  on loan to the Federal Government  for almost five- years as Saskatchewan public relations field officer  with the Wartime Prices and Trade  Board. He returned to the Leader-  Post as telegraph editor, and in  1951 became librarian.  Mr. and Mrs. Cruice have taken  a suite in the new Palmer building  on Marine Drive, in Gibsons, where  they will be in residence this week.  One of their two sons Ronald, is  attending the University of Saskat-  jgh^s^:;;an4.,:tlje^^-^^d^t^.  ing'-."radio'"';';andv"l��elevTsfon;'' iristrue"  tion in Toronto.  Mr. Sam Nutter, who has been  the publisher of The Coast News  since August 1st, 1950, is retiring  from the business due to ill health.  As yet, the plans have not been  finalized for Mr. and Mrs. Nutter  and their family.  ���horah'ers  frUTMllIZe  The above date has been set for  the first meeting of the 1954-55  season, of the popular choral group,  The Peninsula Choraliers. This ad-  notice is to remind all members  that the annual carol service, held  one week before Christmas, will be  continued this year and with two  spring concerts in the offing, very  little time can be spared from coming rehearsals.  There are' several vacancies in  each section of the choir, and an  invitation to interested persons is  extended, by the president, Hilda  Lee, and Mr. H. Roberts who will  be on hand to give the necessary  information. '  Junior Choral, is perhaps, something quite unheard of among the  younger set, but it is something to^  strive for in Vancouver, especially  when musical festival time-comes  along. If it is at all possible, there  will be a junior choral group formed  in this area, the age limit is under  fifteen years of age.' Knowledge of  music is not essential, if you wish  to join this new group. All you  need is a voice, and a desire to  learn what to do, and how to do  it.  As with the Choraliers, distance  will be a side issue, and if the  numbers warrant a rehearsal being  held in the different districts, then,  arrangements will be made to have  Sechelt and/or Selma, Wilson  Creek, and perhaps I can add Gibsons.  Therefore, those who are interested in either the Choraliers or  the Junior Choral (boys' and girls')  please leave your names at. Lang's  Drugs, Sechelt; Mrs. B. Sim, Selma  Park; H. Roberts, Wilson Creek;  Mrs. A. E. Ritchie, Gibsons. You  may phone each of fche above  named.  ,3 Saturday, August 21st, will go  :<|own in the history of the Powell  .���JiVer. area and of the Sechelt Peninsula as the day of "Freedom of  gravel" which was that day added  to -'������the   other   freedoms   of   those  i-yy  ��� ' -r. ..  ;areas..;. ���  .<  "0A trial, run over tlie new road,  recently; sufficiently completed for  travel, ap.d the two ferry runs  ^cross Howe Sound and Jervis In-  Ifefc,' waiSx.made as a special bus left  Vancouver, picking up officials at  Hdrse^oe Bay. The ferries were  gaily decorated with flags on their  run-s,'in honor of the presence of  ���the Blackball Lines president, Col.  ?{jeorge Paulin, and Chairman, Capt.  '���%.'.M. Peabody and Mrs. Peabody,  aind their guests. ���--  ^ After the road trip through the  Sechelt Peninsula, the bus boarded  the Ferry at Agamemnon Bay on  .Her-inaugural run across to Saltrey  Bay, thence again by new road to  Powell River.  VOn this new highway, Mrs. Alex  Peabody cut the ribbon, officially  Opening the road to traffic.  [Powell River residents thronged  tbe decorated streets to welcome  the cavalcade of vehicles, the first  to roll into the Paper Town from  Vancouver in its history.  -Powell River Board of Trade wel-  corned the guests at a luncheon,  with President R. A. Morley acting  as chairman. Guests at the head  table were: G. L. Miles of Van-  couver Board of Trade; R. M. Stewart of Powell River Board of Trade;  Col. George Paulin, Blackball Line's  President; Mrs. B. M. Maclntyre,  Mrs. G. L. Miles, Harold S. Foley,  President of the Powell River Company; R. H. Scanlon, Director;  Reeve Hugo Ray of West Vancouver; R. H. Hastings, Automobile  Association of B.C.; J. Romano,  Capt. A. 'fcyPeab'ody, A. J. .Gar-  gr^ve,^'M;.L.A.; Hon.: James Sinclair, Minister >:'6r-Fisn��nesV anii  the Rev. W. Graham-  Speaking at the luncheon, the  Hon. P. A. Gaglardi, Minister of  Public Works who had declared  the new road ready for traffic, predicted that the new road would  grow into one of the most ireenic  wonders of the continent. He felt  it would be but a short time until  we should all look back upon the  days of 1954 as pioneering, in this  area. He also described the offer  of the Blackball Ferry Lanes of a  loan interest free of half a million  dollars to help push the new road  link through.  The Hon. James Sinclair looked  upon this as "a proud day. One  that would he hard to beat. Residents of the Sechelt Peninsula, as  well as those of Powell River, look  to an era of increased business and  prosperity as a result of the completion of this, road and ferry link.  A large increase in tourist business  is anticipated as one of the results,  with a need for move hotels, motels  and other accommodation along its  scenic length.  Toasts were proposed to The  Blackball Ferries, by the Hon. J.  Sinclair; "The Road Constructors,"  by A. J. Gargrave, M.L.A., and tlie  "Future of the District.," by Mr.  G. L. Miles..  F  Howe Sound Farmers' Institute held a very successful  Fall Fair at Gibsons on Friday and Saturday, August 20th  and 21st, ably handled by the Fall Fair Committee under the  chairmanship of Norman Sergeant, Mrs. LeFeuvre, Secretary, and Tom Clarke, Institute President.   The evening opening on Fridav  was well attended, in  all  its sec  tions. This evening display gave j  all the business people of the area j  an excellent opportunity to view .  the many exhibits, which for them j  is almost an impossibility on Satur-!  day.

John     Wood;  Hardware and Appliances displayed  the Duotherm Heater in a variety  of models  and  types, very  nicely  handled.  The big display of the Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper, Port Mellon  Division, was smartly arranged,  with a model of the plant, mounted  on .a base showing the contours of  the area. The model included a  freighter and a barge loaded with  railway box cars at the miniature  docks, the plant itself, and the  mountain at the back.  Bottles of the Pulp at. successive  stages of its preparation led along  to sheets of the finished papers,  and packages of commercial items  produced from them.  Another commercial display  at the Fair was that of Locke  Knowles from, the Knowles  Service Hardware.

One   lady  from Vancouver who was a flower  enthusiast,   commented    that    she  had never seen a better collection  at the P.N.E.  This display was entered under the card of the Horticultural   and   Chrysanthemum   Society.  In the School exhibits, there  were many entries in the various  note-book classes, which had every  indication of work, thought, and taT-  ent, in arrangement, content and  illustration. A display of relief  maps of the entrance to Howe  Sound, with the Gibsons Harbour,  the Islands, and surrounding mountains, were well done.     ,  There   was   an. exhibit   of  very  )^^J^^.^:\:^^f^!^^^.. youihful^art^  a-viewy- of-.Glbsous^ .  school    both    drew    interested  crowds.

They were  featuring General Electric products. Seats were arranged in the  basement of the main hall for those  interested in viewing. Even before  the set up was completed, a small  audience had gathered.  In the Anglican Church Hall, very  pleasing displays were arranged in  the sections devoted to weaving,  toy making. Blind handicraft, ceramics. One display, arranged by  Mrs. Rourke, represented artifacts  of many nations, both European  and Asian. Tapestries, China, Pottery- and Metal work pieces were  gathered into sections to illustrate  the crafts of each nation.  It was explained that the weaving section was not as big as usual,  and metal work, and truly exhibition pieces.  Mr. T. Makin, the judge of the  Livestock, was quite impressed  with the quality of the stock exhibited, though the entries were few.  He felt that there would not be better quality at the P.N.E. --'",'  There were several pens of poultry and rabbits, a pair of Suffolk  lambs from Gambier Island, two  bull calves and a Jersey heifer.  While this may seem like small  response, it must be remembered  that there have been no livestock  classes for many years at Gibsons.

Perhaps  now is a better time, than any other to analyze and assess  &he significance of this fact.  Why does the institution we call the "school" exist, and  what 3s--.it like? All of life is a series of experiences. If these  experiences affect behaviour, then education exists. In prim-1. ,    ���, ..     _.  itive societies education is non-specific  in nature; the in-  have to make them a matter ��f  dividual learns what is necessary for him to learn through  the routines of the life in which he participates.  ^ -Ali advancd civilizations have specific institutions in  wfaiich a part of this learning experience takes place, in  democracies the school * exists for both the state and the  individual. The state, in order to remain free, muslt produce  citizens capable of intelligent thought and behaviour. It can  do'this only by valueing the individual highly, and by giving  Mm the opportunity to realize his capabilities to the fullest.  Th��re is a common agreement that the community and  the .state shall provide building and staff and that the individual, at least to a certain minimum age, shall attend.  Qelfy when students and staff are both present can a "school".  fas said to exist  Obviously, however, there mere congregating together is  not enough. There must be some specific activity, or there  has been no advance over primitive socialization. Society  designates the general pattern of the curriculum. In general,  - it involves the acquisition of skills in figuring* writing, reading and logical thinking and, with the aid of these skills, the  absorption of certain aspects of our cultural heritage.  The school, then, is a place of neither mystery nor  efcance. It is definite, and it is organized.* Whether the student is in his first year or his last year or in any year between,  ��ach day of the calender year is fashioned to present to him  some saew bit of organized learning. It is the duty of the  school curriculum and the school staff to so organize and  mfesent this continuing stream of education. It is the obligation of the student, for his own sake and for the sake of all  tfesase who will some day be dependent upon what he can  o-jfer Ms society, to bring 0 the school a person inquisitive  te-draw-as fully as he can upon what the school can offer him.  ONE VIEW  OF-^ THE  B.E.G.  Enclosed is your article by  DO from, your interesting  weekly. I would not use this  ���column even for starting the  fire in my stove, not this week,  anyway.  The only Canadian, ad certainly the most unobstrusively  noticeably thing there at the  time of the BE.G. was the non-  participation of the most  Canadians in the games and at  ithem. And the interest manifested limited and extended to  the point of showing a wholesome or preferred interest in' space in our Bus Yard during  sports for its own sake and a j arrival and departure of Busses,  friendly interest of goodwill i we would appreciate your park-  and enthusiasm, toward people ing your taxi on the street,  coming from other parts of the; allowance rather than on our  .world, including England.. j property,    as    you   have   been  Non participation of Canadians doing lately.,,  BUSSES AND TAXIS  We, the undersigned, in  answer to your recent editorial  of August 19th, titled "Whose  Interest," cannot find sympathy  for Mr. Lawrence or the Sechelt  Motor Transport.  The Sechelt Motor Tansport  drivers solicit business on all  their incoming busses, for the  taxi service operate^ by Mr.  Lawrence in  Sechelt.  On July 11th, 1953 we received a letter from the Sechelt  Motor Transport from which  we quote "Owing to the limited  Publisher Retires  With this, issue of The Coast News, our publisher, Mr.  Sam Nutter announces his retirement. He wishes to express  fels real appreciation of the co-operation and consideration  ��f the public and readers of The Coast News.  Due to his health, he has not been able to travel about  &e community, or to attend meetings and functions as  frealy "as is desirable, in the business of publishing a weekly  newspaper. He feels, and we concur, that in spite of this  handicap. The Coast News has rendered a valuable service  to i_ae Sushine Coast and its people.  With the arrival of Mr. Fred Cruice, the new owner and  publisher, Mr. Nutter feels that this service will now increase, because of his ability to travel about in the area, and  to take a more positive part in its activities.  There has been a not -inappreciable advancement m the  Coast News since August 1950, when headquarters and print-  in<r equipment were established in Gibsons, and the Coast  News was printed in the area it served, and as Publisher,  lie wishes to extend to his readers, advertisers and other  associates, and especially his Area Correspondents, his very  genuine thanks- He also. expresses the wish that the co  operation of the Sunshine Coast be extended to the hew  oTvner and publisher, Mr. Fred Cruice.   blood and guts, as I believe one  contestant described them, in  order to have the right to live  and possess ourselves and our  country. There is no reason to  believe that the men and  women who made this nation  were long distance runners,  champion cyclists, miracle  milers or anything like that.  They were the right kind of  people, however, and had what  it takes.  The most immature behaviour  in the nations today is that of  individuals and groups, even  department stores who after  200 years of North American  progress, and success acquired  through Canadian clients and  customers, have in some sort of  delusion turned their posses- ���  ���sions and the management  thereof back to .those -whose  national symbal is a bulldog,  and the obvious result is that  they began rapidly to deterior-  jate, to go to the dogs, as it  were, until they turned to U.S.  .methods to save and smarten  their flopping businesses.''���"-���'  Welcome to World Sports and  other enlivening things that  come this way, but the B.E.G.  doesn't make- music here. It-  Just spells' BEG, which is  neither here nor there.  We complied with the request  contained in. this letter, but the  ''limited space" did not 'prohibit the parking of the taxi of  Mr. Lawrence in the Bus Yard  and as a result all passengers  are shunted from the Busses  directly to Mr. Lawrence's  taxis alongside the bus.  We are free to share what  little business may overflow to  the street allowance.  . The Public Utilities Commission certainly have a reason in  granting Powell River Stages  their present franchise as it  would be manifestly unfair to  grant to Mr. Lawrence and the  Sechelt Motor Transport a monopoly of the whole Peninsula,  taking into consideration . the  fact that he already operates a  taxi business, has School Bus  contracts here and at Pender  Harbour, ' in addition to the  operation of the Sechelt Motor  Transport.  Surely there can be no com-  endermen's Strike  Proves Costly Affair  \W�� said that the strike cost  millions of dollars and that it  gained for the tendermen $5 a  jaasmt-u But the halance sheet is  jaot quite as simple as that.  When the Union presented its demands on behalf of the tendermen  Sit February of this year, they set  forth the following items:  1. $30 a month increase in wages.  2. A seniority clause basically designed to guarantee all herring ten  tier jobs for salmon tendermen only, | Union "drojiped its demands on va  with pay.  3.

Before the strike was called ��� the  companies offered in addition:  1. $10 monthly wage increase this  year.  2. $10 monthly wage increase next'  year. Or $5 a month and a welfare  plan.  At the same time they insisted  upon a two-year contract. The companies also remained adamant  against any type of seniority which  involved herring.

Fishermen and plant workers who refused to work, in spite  of agreements with the companies,  lost several millions of dollars in  earnings.

COMMUNIST INFLUENCE  I vwould like to give my own  personal views, without prejudice, on the present bread  strike-lockout', as I see it from  what I have been able to glean  from responsible sources, and  my own personal observations.  I have drawn my own conclusions.  1. This bread strike is com-  munistically inspired. 2. This  strike is very well managed  from their point of view,; and  interests. . That the A.F. of L.  should do just what they did in  the East by demanding that the  baker's clean house of all its  communists, and elect a new  executive.  My reasons for these statements are found in the fact that  in nearly all the outlying districts and even in Vancouver,  one can buy bread under the  wrappings of McGavins, 4-X  Canadian Bakeries and West-  ons. These wrappings carry the  Union Lable, and represent  union made goods. How is it  that a union allows its lable to  go through its own picket line?  Something rotten here. How is  it the striking bakers are ignorant of the last proposals of  the Master Baker's Association?  What does all the stalling mean  by the baker's executive?  Folks it all adds up to Communism. A short time ago, the  A.F. of L. suspended one of its  biggest unions and ordered it  to throw out its communists  before it was allowed to affiliate with it again. In my  humble opinion, this is just  what ought to be done here.  As far as the Bakery Salesmen's local 189 goes, I can  safely assure the public that  there is not a member on it  with   communistic   leanings.  Sunshine   Coast   1 yl*e  NO.   76  I.O.O.F.

No Funds For  Ambulance Service  Some time ago a meeting was  held in Gibsons of citizens interested in ambulance service  for the Sechelt Peninsula as it  had been reported that the  service provided by Mr. W.  Graham was likely to come to  an end because of lack of financial support.  A committee of five was appointed to investigate ways and  means of having the ambulance  service continued, Dr. D.T.R.  McColl, Mr. J. Browning, Mr.  W.P. Peiper, Rev. H.U. Oswald  and Robt Macnicol.  Mr. Macnicol reporting on behalf of the committee, states  that the committee communicated with the Hon. Eric Martin,  Minister of Health and Welfare,  Victoria, outlining the situation  on the Peninsula and explaining  that most of the area concerned  was unorganized, Gibsons being  the only organized territory in  the district involved.  It was suggested to the B.C.  Government that under these  circumstances, the Government  should consider rendering some  financial assistance in the  matter of provision of a satisL  factory ambulance service.  In  his  reply,   the   Hon.   Mr.  Martin  expressed   his   personal  Gower  Gleanings  sympathy to the situation that  the people in the area may be  faced in regards to the continuance of the existing ambulance service, but stated that  it had never been the policy of  the Government to provide  ambulance service or to assist  in financing such facilities.  The   Provincial   Government  being unable  to   render financial   assistance,   the   committee  gave some consideration to the  matter   of   raising  a   fund   by  voluntary   effort   for   the   purpose of providing a subsidy for  the     ambulance    service,    but  finally    decided    against    such  procedure.  It was thought that  such   a  move would  not  meet  with     success,     as     collection  would require to be made over  a very widespread area.  The committee also had in  mind the experience of a well  established nursing service in  trying to meet their budget this  year, most of their revenue  being derived from voluntary  donations.  The committee was unanimous in commending the  efforts of Mr. Waly Graham in  providing a very necessary service, and- expresses the hope  that the ambulance service will  not be discontinued.

United Church grounds thronged  with buyers on August 20th when  ladies of the Auxiliary to the  church held their annual sale of  work and tea. The different, items  for sale and the fine foodstuffs  .were soon sold and more than a  hundred guests moved into the  church hall for a very fine tea.  Much credit is due the workers as  they are so few in number. Their  annual bazaar is always a success,  both financially and socially.  A representative of "Friends"  magazine, an American publication,  not known in Canada, has spent  considerable time on our Peninsula this summer gathering material and photographs for use next  Spring.

At least  they found an arrow protruding  from their tent. By some strange  coincidence they" also met some  boys who were out hunting squirrels with bows and arrows , that  very same day. Another coincidence was that the two weeks'  vacation was up.  Of interest to her friends here is  the marriage Tuesday, the 17th,  at Ocean Falls, of Janet Bernhof  and George Duplessis. They are  the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H.  Bernhof of Roberts Creek and the  son of Mr. and Mrs. G. Duplessis  of Winnipeg.

The  Coast News  Thursday August  26,   1954  Police  Court News  In Magistrate Johnston's Court  last week, Gordon Hugh Gil-  mour, Barrister of Vancouver,  was fined ten dollars and costs  for exceeding the speed limit  oftwenty five miles per hour  at Selma Park.  Ernest Frederick Cartwright  of Hopkins Landing paid a fine  of ten dollars and costs for exceeding the speed limit at  Wilson Creek.  Hugh McCurdy of Sechelt  was found guilty on a charge  under the Unemployment Insurance Act, and fined fifty  dollars and costs, and ordered  to pay to the Unemployment  Insurance Commission the sum  of fifty two dollars, which sum  he had accepted after he was  employed, and not entitled to  same. This was his second similar offence.  Mrs. Ruth De Wolfe of Vancouver, and Neil Newick of  Pender Harbour, were each  fined ten dollars and costs for  exceeding the speed limit on  the Sechelt Highway.  A Greek Shipping Magnate  from Ithaca, Greece, was fined  the sum of five dollars and  costs, for driving over the  double white line on the Sechelt  Highway. *������. j  Ralph H.

Frank Solnik of Sechelt was  fined $10.00 and costs for being  intoxicated in a public place  near Roberts Creek.

Edward William Lee, of Vancouver, for exceeding the speed  limit at Selma Park, was fined  $10.00 and costs.

But it meant a lot to the  Fireboys as they are battling  Port Mellon to the finish for  the pennant.  Wilson Creek has gone into  a slump and are not a very  serious threat to the two top  running teams. The other three  clubs are staggering along behind but everyone realizes that  there has to be losers in any  league, next season may be  different.  ��� Seeing as the season is just  about over I am going to stick  out my neck and pick my "All  Star" team. This is not the  league's official "AH Star"  team, but the one that I think  would make up the best team  in the league. A great many  of the fans will not agree with  me  but everyone  has  his  own  Sechelt  Hook & Ladder  The Sechelt Volunteer Firemen  expect to see you all at their annual ball on Saturday, August 28th,  in Roberts Creek Community Hall.  Tickets $1.00 each can be obtained  from any of the firemen or at the  Union Steamship Store in Sechelt.  The amount raised by the combined efforts of the Selma Park  Community Association and the  Firemen at their recent sports day  was about $80.00. The Fire Brigade  wish to express their thanks to all  who assisted and supported their  efforts on that day.  dollars and costs.  At the preliminary hearing in  the case of Benny Paul, charged  with the theft of mail matter  from the Wilson Creek Post  Office two years ago, the expert evidence of Cpl. Wm. Dux-  bury, R.C.M.P., of the Laboratory in Regina, in the matter  of 'handwriting, gave weight tc  the case for the Crown, and  Paul was committed for trial.  Photostatic charts were used by  Cpl. Duxbury in the comparisons of handwriting.  R.H. Davis, for illegal parking on Marine Drive in Gibsons,  Was fined two dollars and costs.  opinion.  So here are the "Ball and  Strikes All Stars for 1954."  Starting out with the catcher:  R. Godfrey of the Firemen* 1st  base Bob Norris of the Firemen,  2nd base Rudy Crucil of Wilson  Creek, shortstop Billy Nichols  of Port Mellon, 3rd base Bud  Fisher of the Firemen, Left  field Jack Wiren of Port Mellon,  centre field Jack Cressweli oi  the Merchants* and right field  Tommy Reynolds of Wilson  Creek. To coach this so called  dream team I have picked Doug  Oike of Wilson Creek, and to  do the pitching duties I have  chosen Norm MacKay of the  Firemen, "Muscles" Kuwica of'  Port Mellon and B,ud Kamberly !  of Pender Harbour.  Tnere  are  also   a  few   more  verbal honors coming from this  column  namely   Gus  Crucil   of  ���Selma  Park  for  the  most  outstanding   coach    of   the   year,  bringing   along    the   underated'.  Selma   team,   and   also   to   thej  player that I feel has done the,  most  for  his   team   this   year, j  Chops Magean of the Merchants.  As   I   stated   before   there  willj  probably be many who disagree j  with me but there, it is, the way  I see it.  To get around to another "All  Star" team, I understand the  Gibsons "Old Timers" have  challenged the Firemen to an  exhibition game to take place  in a couple of weeks with all  benefits going to the VON.  The saying is that the "Old  Timers" can beat the Firemen  with one arm and to prove their  point I understand that Vic  Mecalfe will be their starting  pitcher. Other notables in their  lineup are Harry (the mad Irishman) Doren. Harry (Bullmoose)  Reichelt,     Earl     (the    terrible)  Bingley, and it it is understood  that the outfield will be patrolled by Jack (eagle-eye) Fitchett. There are many more  "Old Timers" that will be playing and I will try and have the  complete lineup by next week.  My prediction of the pennant  winners were Port Mellon,  Firemen and Wilson Creek in  that order. So far they look  pretty good to me, but with  the way the Firemen are going  I could be wrong and make a  lot of fans happy. But then  again I haven't been noted for  making ball fans happy this  year, have I?  Vacationers  urn  Among those who felt like enjoying a change of scene for their  annual holiday were Mrs. Cloe Day  and Mrs. Alice Veitch of Gibsons,  who are still enjoying in retrospect  their trip of almost twelve thousand miles through the United  States, with a grandchild of Mrs.  Day's as the highlight and object  of the jaunt. Their memories include New York at night and on  Sunday afternoon, the Florida Coast  and the Everglades, Mid-Western  states heat, beautiful highways,  cable cars travelling up at a  seventy-five degree angle, West  Coast states, and the happy sight  of their own home in Gibsons on  the return.  Mr. and Mrs. Bob Burns are  home after their week of travel in  the interior of British Columbia  and down through the western  states. They found that rain could  fall just as hard and just as long  away from home as in it.  Mr. Sopp has returned from England, and is full of stories and  memories.  Mrs. Finlayson has returned from  a long sojourn in England with her  family, and reports anjoying the  visit very much. She found general  conditions in England much im- i  proved in the past few years.  Artiste Beauty Salon  MRS.  SMITH WILL  BE  ON  HOLIDAYS  September 4th To September 18th.
