Mr. Ronnie Hyde  lent his jeep which was beautifully decorated, for the May  Queen and her attendants -to  ride in and many of the children! arrived in fancy dress, or  with decorated  bicycles.  Mrs. Duncaw, Mrs. Parsons  cntlMrs. Fox judged the parade,  .entrants and the Parade moved  off promptly  at  9:30  a.m.  On arrival at the .Indian: Recreation grounds, the Brownies  and Guider, Mrs. Lonneberg,  formed a guard of honor for  their sister Brownie, May queen  Marda Walker, whose escort of  this occasion was Mrs. Dorothy  Smith,    representative    of    the  PTA..

Hughes, Commissioner of the Greater Vancouver  Tourist Association addressed the Gibsons Board of Trade and  their guests,-on "Ladies Night'' on Monday May 31st, Mr. Hughes  thanked the three members, Locke Knowles Harold Wilson and  Bill MacAfee, who took him over the Peninsula, as far as Ruby  Lake. He found the area to be lovely country, filled with magnificent views. The accomodation here he found excellent, and he  will not hesitate to send visitors to the Sunshine Coast.  Time, he said, was too short' -  to paint the entire picture of Sr��ups and by membership,  the Tourist Industry, which to' Publicity is simply selling,  be successful must be a collect-,Here' we must let Pe0Ple know  :ve job. First, it is necessary !that our tourist seas��n is not  to attract visitors by accomoda-, only July and August. The  tion and by recreational,publlc must be educated to an  facilities.  The Tourist Industry in B.C.  Is Big Business. He quoted the  fishing as bringing in fifty-  eight million dollars, Where the  tourist industry brought seventy  millions. This money comes into  our communities as brand new  money,   priming   our   economy.  The business is a very com-  petetive one. In it, he feels the  Peninsula is stariirg on the  right track, but stressed that  Tourist Accomodation should  be   operated   .collectively,   that  all-season idea.  The greatest number of tourists' come here from the United  States. We must be Canadiao  at all times, maintaining our  individuality. The Americans  hope to find a different country  when they visit, so it is no  change for them to find carbon  copies of their .towns, holiday  spots or mainerisms.

The second job is to make the  visitors happy. Important points  here, he stated, were: Comfortable quiet places to stay, Good  food pleasantly, served, Courtesy  Islands*as examples of friendliness.

JHe  then   called   upon  Mr.   Drummond, who spoke has one who  had known Bob in business and  as a friend for many years, and  who   believed   that  the   accomplishing of his wishes in regard  to the building had  given Bob  much   pleasure.   It   was   to   be  regretted that he had not lived  until     it    had     actually    been  opened.  Mr. R. Macnicol spoke as a  Veteran, who had known and  worked with Bob, who considered him a highly respected  member of the community and  member of tlie Canadian Legion.  Mr. Mainwaring, as a friend,  who had known Bob for twenty  five years, spoke of this long  association, and agreed with  the words of Mr. Macnicol.  Mr. Knowles then read aloud  for those who might not be able  to see the placque, the text as  quoted above.

Phone Gibsons 45W  Box 128 Gibsons British Columbia  (L*di  it  ilonatd  wm  Periodically the Peninsula suffers from the depreciations  of someone with a decided mental quirk, and some person,  group or institution suffers from his damaging activities.  This latest serious outbreak is one to be greatly deplored.  Our understanding of the report received from the Imperial  Oil agents here regarding the recent damage to their vehicle  and equipment leads us to believe that someone is flouting  not only human decency of conduct in a most cowardly way,  but is setting at nought the Law itself.  In this instance, it is easy to say "Oh, kids again." Our  belief is that when the miscreant is located, he will prove to  be someone with an understanding of motor vehicles and this  type in particular, otherwise the damage would not have  been so neatly contrived to cripple as it did. Further, it would  have been impossible to wreak this specific damage, without  special tools. Someone who is too cowardly.to meet either of  the partners openly; and voice-his dissatisfaction.  Let us hope that when the R.C.M.P. does find the culprit,  that he will receive a sufficient punishment to deter anyone  from following in his footsteps, and that he will be caused to  pay amply for both the material damage and the loss of time  caused by the disabling of the equipment.  Change May \k\ Date?  This year, as for many years, the May Day Celebrations  rvere sadly interrupted by old Jupitor Pluvious, who, for what  reasons we will never know, decides to pour down on that  day.  Would it be completely out of order to suggest a change  of date for our May Day? Why not choose ariother date, and  have a general "May Day" on \ttoe Peninsula, an event quite  apart from Empire Day,? A study of the weather records  should provide a lead to a period in which a minimum of  *veather disturbances occurred, and a day could then be set  when it would be reasonable to expect that our small May  Queens and their attendants, our May Dancers, and the beautiful costumes and decora/ted.floats would not be,ruined.  This does not suggest that Empire Day, as such, should  not be observed. It should, but who ever heard of anyone  objecting to another day of celebration? Let us all.give consideration to avoiding this annual disappointment and consequent distress. Since we can't yet control the weather, let  ��8 adjust to it. , ���,,....

On Sunday last, with the old car laden with boat, fishing  gear, dog, lunch box, and all other necessary equipment, we set  cut to have a look at the much discussed, and long awaited road  from Pender to Agamemnon Bay. The first part of the drive  passed without incident. Then we hit the rough dusty section from  Sechelt, past Halfmoon Bay and around the innumerable bends  to Kleindale.  That part of the road was not  too rough, but was so dusty we  , v;ere indeed glad the Blackball  people had not yet completed  their temporary ferry landing  at Pender. How one will see to  drive, if from ten to twenty  .cars.rome off that ferry at once,  we were unable to imagine.  1/ventually, we arrived- at the  campsite, and the beginning of  the new grade. We ran into a  slight delay there, due to the  Foreman being out on the road  on an inspection trip, and no  one at the camp having authority to let us onto the new  grade. During this intermission,  we went around to Bear Lake  for a spot of casting for trout,  and had lunch.  Back to the new road again  in the early afternoon, we were  given permission to travel, first  being warned that we would  need plenty of clearance, as  there was one stretch that was  difficult. About eight miles are  travelable.  The new grade is almost corn-  least,  or rather, that is how it  should be.  The day of days that I have  in mind for this recording was  a co-Id, wet, very early March  morning, returning to Port  Mellon circa 1918.  There had been, some Lucullan  libation the night before, and  the smell of bilge and bufql"  ��� oil poured nio salve on the-drear  and doleful dawn* Our chief  was a noted two-cycle combatant, and the oil and grime of  years venerated his face. His  approach for the startling of thi'  ghoulish gas-fake was on the  same level as anr. airliner.  Water, battery, plugs, timer  were all inspected because, you  see these two cycles would  start more easily, oddly enough  when they were cold. If gas and  and oil \ were kept in proper  order, and start out under full  throttle, they might run to  destination....  James put his head out and  ordered cast off. There was no  such things as a warm up when  we went, if we went we went  good.   Zoom!  off  we go.  As  a  ligineered  grades.  The fills are almost all rock,  which should make for an al-  rtost everlasting foundation.  Here and there, one catches  marvellous views of the long,  narrow Saginaw, with mountains surrounding it. The day  was too dull for pictures, unfortunately, so we just enpoyed  looking, instead of being able  to  record these views.  Climbing, dipping and curving, the road progressed. We  crossed several little mountain  streams, where good culverts  have been set in the grade,*  before coming to the few hundred yards of which we had  been warned. Here, the work  road winds around, and up and  down between the two ends of  the new grade. Travelling this  section, one is very conscious  of what has had to be done, in  order to get the machines and  equipment . into the area to  make the grade.-  We reached the rest of the  grade without trouble, however,  pletely cut;out of rock. The j ^ wenfc Qn goon the road  work that has been involved , dipped dow^ and w were at  here    is   tremendous.    On   thejthe end of Ruby Lake   For the  right,"- as one drives away from  Pender, there are high rock  faces and cuts, which show all  too clearly the reason why this  construction has taken so long  a time to accomplish.

Sea Monster  Off Gospel Rock  We've finally got the story  from Wes Hodgson, of.,Gibsons.  He was afraid to tell it because,  as he says, people think anyone  who' says he's seen' it has been  bending an elbow once too  often.  This happened just off Gospel  Rock at Gibsons at, two o'clock  on. the afternoon of May -18th  when Wes was fishing. He  sighted someone in a row boat,  rowing "like mad", and went  along to see if he could help  the rower. Finding eperything  under control, he turned to, go  about his . own business. Then,  he saw IT.  "IT'' was a long, slim creature,  and is expected home soon,  i Mrs. Clarice Clarke entertained  Mr. and Mrs. P.H. Parcher, and  Mrs.   S.

Four  of these undulations were visible   at  once,   and  Wes  swears  tips was no  group of dolphins  ;oe other large fish. He was close  enough to it that when he called  to   the   man   in   the  row-boat,  Berti Dadswell, who was on the  other side of the beast, he was  clearly .heard   above the sound  of his motor. Not more than a  hundred feet, he swears, separated  him   from   the   huge   sea-  creature.  ��� ''IT" had 'a hide like that of  air elephant,  without any  hair  -cr covering.  It  was  about two  and a half feet wide, and "Goodness   knows   how   long,   maybe  fifty feet" Mr. Hodgson is sure.  The most  surprising part  of  the  whole  thing   is that  when  Wes   went   close   to   speak   to  Dadswell,   to  ask   him  had   he  seen    it,    Bert    said,   "That's  nothing.

The pictures were amusingly  titled, and cleverly put together  and were much enjoyed..  The balance of the evening  was given to dancing, muncl>  ing crackers, cheese and pickles  and just having 'a good time.  The 24th of May being a  Monday,' the Firemen were  given a holiday, no weekly  practice being held.

Balls .& Strikes  by  Observer  The Gibsons Firemen moved  into sole possession, of' first  place on Sunday by defeating  Selma Park 12 to 9 in- a lot  better ball game than the score  indicates.  Selma Park is a coming team,  and altough it is doubtful if  they will finish in the top three,  they are going to be a serious  threat at all times. Gus Crucil,  who recently joined their coaching staff, is making a big  difference in the over all play  of the team.  The Pender Harbour Athletics  squashed the stumbling Gibsons  Merchants 20 to 11 to drop the  boys in blue into the cellar, and  unless some strong pitching is  acquired they haven't much  hope of getting out of it this  season.  The Merchants are potentially  the best team in the league,  but are having trouble getting  organized. Could it be too many  cooks spoil the broth?  In the game of the day Wilson  Creek pulled another one out  of the fire, coming from behind  to edge out Port Mellon 6 to 5.  I'm giving the first star to  Wilson Creek's coach, Doug  Oike, whose fighting spirit and  knowledge of the game makes  Wilson Creek the team it is.  The second star goes to "Red"  Addison, Port Mellon's stellar  catcher, who always plays a  good solid ball game and is one  of the  leagues  better  catchers.  The third star goes to Wilson  Creek's centre fielder Lawrence  Crucil, who seemed to be the  only man who could get a solid  hit off Port Mellon pitching.  FOUL   BALLS  The Firemen are. still talking  about the one they lost at Pender. Could it have been tfte long  ride,   fella's. ���  There's a certain short stop  who seems to be having trouble  bending over to get ground  balls, my advice to the coach  (Mr. D.) is a good kick in the  place it will do the shortstop  the most good.  I understand that one of the  teams is running a coach of the  week contest, if you guess this  week's,   you   coach   next  week.  Sunday sees Pender Harbour  and the Merchants tangle at the  High School grounds and it  should be a good game, but the  way I see it, Pender to win.  Epont News  RAEHG NEWS  Pfeii Ashton  iflSdd   1-11  by Patricia Frew.  If you've ever wondered why  the prettiest girl in the Miss  P.N.E. contest isn't always the  Winner, ask Phil Ashton.  In 1950, the P.N.E. set up a  committee to revamp the contest judging. Phil was named  "head of the group. It was his  suggestion that personality  count as much as a pretty face,  thus making it a more difficult  task to hunt for the beast in the  beauty and vice versa.  Phil has long been associated  with  young  adult work in  the  city   and   was   recently   elected  British   Columbia   Teen-  Town,  Director   at   the   Ninth   Annual  Conference   of  Teen  Town  \ Mayers, held at Karnloops.  Phil has always had his finger  in   many   pies.   Take   1947   for  instance. He was  the Mayor of  I Fairmount  Teen   Town,   was  I editor   of   the  B.C.   Air   Cadet  magazine, was the president of  the  King   Edward  High  School  Student's Council, was affiliated  with   the   publication    for   the  MacMilan Fine Arts Club,  was  the editor of the King Ed school  paper and year book,  belonged  to the Hi-Y and Phalanx groups  at the Y.M.C.A. and still found  time   to   spend   his   week-ends  visiting a friend in Everett.  Phil's secret to success is that  he hardly ever sleeps'. He's a  most extraordinary person! You  often hear of children who,  much to the dismay of their  fond parents, stay awake .all  night, but very rarely do you  encounter the same trait in an  adult.  ��� At three in the morning, most  any day of the week, you can  find Phil finishing up a script  for a show, arranging some  band promotion or finding out  what's going on in the teen  world.  In addition to his youth work,  Phil is perhaps best known for  his long association wUth the  ''Hi-Time1" program. .This show  is rated tops with the teen crowd  on the coast?  y-Many pf Phil's closest friends;  call him :B.C.'s Oldest Teenager.!

On Sunday morning, May  16th, the walking committee of  the Elgmont Community Club,  Bill Cook, Ben Griffith, Bob  Griffith, Jim Wallace, Ernie  Silvey and Fred McNutt, armed  wLtth, axes, - lunches, compass,  map and note book, were taken  in Bill -Cook's boat to Agamemnon Bay.  Getting off in the vicinity of  Inlet Logging camp and walking up the truck road about  300 ft, they proceeded in a  south-westerly direction until  they ran into the survey lines  made by the government surveyors when they were seeking  an, outlet via Inlet Logging for  the Agememnon Road.  This. part seemed to present  vo difficulties. They - spoke to  Mr. Delong, who said he understood it was the intention of  Inlet Logging to complete this  stretch of road to. connect the  camp with the new highway.  This would be a distance of  one mile.  Retracing their steps the  group then went up the truck  road one-half mile to North  Lake, following DahPs old cat  road half way round the North  .side of the lake they found a  F-mpll patch of rock work. A  Creek running into North Lake  would require a small culvert  between North Lake and  Waugh Lake, the distance is  one  half-mile.  Travelling from North Lake  to the creek emptying out of  Waugh Lcke, they found the  goiing  easy.

I      So   far,   Gibsons   Elementary  School is the only public school  :- in, B.C.   to   participate   in   the  i Speech   Arts   'Festival,    having  I entered  the  first public  school  j choir   last  year,   and   the   first  ! Boys' Choir this year.  ���  Choral Speech is one of the  oldest, and trickiest, of the  Dramatic Arts. Over two thousand years ago it was used by  the ancient Greeks to explain  the background and intervening  actions of plays. Early in this  century, the art was revived on  its own merits in Europe, especially in England, and was  later introduced into North  America.  A delightful compliment is  being paid the Gibsons Verse-  Speaking Choir by the B.C.  Speech Teachers' Association.  In appreciation of the interest  taken, and the work done by  this choir, the Association is  presenting to Gibsons School a  record of the poems spoken by  the choir at this festival.  FOR QUICK SALES  USE THE COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIED  Twenty-four, hour telephone service began in Gibsons June 1. The B.C.  Telephone Company only recently acquired the telephone system in this  area and so it is pleased to bring this improved service so quickly to those  served by the Gibsons exchange.  The telephone company has employed additional staff to operate the  exchange on a round-the-clock basis. This will permit all types of calls,  local or long distance, to be handled at any time of the day or night.  The new service for Gibsons means that the entire Sechelt Peninsula is  now on round-the-clock operation. In addition, an outdoor telephone pay^  station has been established at the Sechelt bus station to provide 24-hour  public telephone service there. A similar station will be installed to serve-  Gibsons telephone users.
