The demand for more and better roads had real weight,  and more roads were built. The Port Mellon Road became an  actuality, the" Sechelt Highway was paved.  The place which shows the greatest change as a result  of this revolution in transportation is Pender Harbour. No  longer, are the residents content to putter back and forth  over the sea im boat's large and Small. Now they, too want  better roads, more bus'service, lights and phones. Even St.  Francis Peninsula is to be reached by highway over Canoe  Pass! "'.'���'  Thursday morning saw another phase of the change,  when the "Quillayute". having spent a quiet period moored  to the wharf at Gibsons, was seen sailing slowly over the  early morning sea, along the-Coast to her new berth at Agamemnon Bay. The residents along the waterfront, from  Gower Point to Pender Harbour saw in this quiet voyage the  beginning of the service to Powell River, which  linked with|as was me cit    witfa  the flag  the new Agamemnon Road, will not only provide an outlet I draped    standards    all    along  for <m��forists from the Pulp and Paper center, who have been Even the'huge, crammed park-  feeTraned in their little area of blacktopped highway for years, *  bat will open up and serve still a few more miles of the Peninsula, and  make accessible  sitill more  marvellous  holiday  spots, timber areas, and fishing waters.  While we do not quite agree 'with the article in the  Powell River News in its comments on the Peninsula, we do  readily agree that this change in transportation has hastened  tiie development of the area almost unbelievably.  Those who still enjoy the life here, who came in those  earlier years, are, for the most part philosophical about the  changes. There are a few who feel that their earlier privacy  has gradually become encroached upon and that the place is  jqo Jontger that quiet paradise they came to retire to.  The Sunshine Coast may now begin to take its place in  the. rapidly developing Province of British Columbia, whether  as a tourist annex to Vancouver, an adjunct of Powell River,  or am area with characteristics, plans and developments of  its own, will depend upon the people who live in'it.  Whatever comes, the lonesome looking "Quillayute,"  plodding over the dawnlit waters on Thursday morning was  the symbol of the turning of one more page in our local  history.  Band, the P.P.C.L.I.

I should riot have wasted my  time in writing even one letter,  for all the good it ever would  do on this Peninsula, it is  wasted effort.  Mr. Peers I will see personally, that's a promise, for there  are a few things I would be  very happy to say to him..  A nonde-plume does not  necessarily mean timidness on  the part of the writer, there are  i many reasons for such, otherwise why nom-de-plumes?

But   when   young  Rich   Ferguson  in   the   Miracle  Mile ran such a splendid third,  the cries of "Come On Canada"  rang out  all  over the stadium.  Bannister and Landy had their  cheers,  shouts   and   ovation,   so  well deserved, but that staunch  young  eighteen  year  old,   running so  gallant  a   third,   really  brought  the  crowd  to  its  feet.

That was the  B.E.G. performance that delighted this sport fan above all  others.

They, the scientists, had  sot exaggerated, flushed and arrogant with radar and nuclear successes. Their experimentations had  been succesful, the two years had  grown into ten. and now as a result  the peoples of the earth had but  ten short days of survival.  ���'Just ten short days.  It happened  this   way!    As  you  know,   shortly  after contact had  been made and  i>ases established on the moon, the  great East-West War had descended on Humanity.   Great cities and  fcheir teeming masses disintegrated  -almost instantly in the mushroom  -clou'ds of the nitrogen bombs and  nuclear devices so devastating as to  dwarf    into    insignificance    their  ���iethal smaller brothers, the hydrogen and atom bombs.  New York, Toronto, Detroit, San  "Francisco, and Vancouver had van-  . jshed, projected into history by the  S3ick of a finger.  -&I1 our available nuclear weapons  ���were then transported . to the  Moon "bases, where pinpoint bombing of the East was then possible.  Due to an oversight, an incoming  Sntevplanetary transport liner  loaded with bombs had collided,  'OH the Moon, with an outgoing  guided missile. The result was fantastic.  No immediate change in shape^of  the Moon was visible to the naked  eye, but it was soon obvious that  it  had   acquired  rotation,  and  its  orbit round the earth was now nearer,  and  somewhat  erratic.  It  had  also    acquired   numerous    smaller  satellites of its own. These were no  '_toabt  large  pieces  of  the .Moon's  -���gravitational pull.  ���Due to the increased lunar pull,  great tidal waves, several thousand  'Seet high, swept inland at a terrific  velocity carrying with them the  amclear bomb wreckage of the for-  :_xier-great cities, only to recede with  ���sagual velocity, taking with the-m  !ihe 'Yefhavns of our once great forests plus the dislodged topsoil, and  all living animals and vegetation.  ..A .few  straggling  bands   of  survivors -icould be seen struggling to  yeaeh higher levels, slowly pursued  foy dark:moving masses of rats, the I  ���sole survivors of the great cities,  sjSiill dependent on human effort for  their food, but now devouring the  .sutk and injured humans unable to  ���'Smiiiitain the pace in the struggle  "-���to rea.cn higher ground.

THE TIME, BUT  MAMA ALWAVS  WINS/  Thursday  August   12,   1954        The Coast New_  Port Mellon softball team  went down to defeat in their  first playoff game at Woodfibre.  Over one hundred persons  boarded the MV Bonabelle  which left Port Mellon at noon  Sunday Augus 8th, arriving at  Woodfibre after a very enjoyable sail at one-thirty.  The officials of the mill had  made preparations for the visitors to tour the plant and adjacent buildings, and several  groups of excited ball fans  cooled their heels in this  manner, whilst waiting for the  game which commenced at six  o'clock.  I am not going to tell you  what happened, or why Port  Mellon was on the short end of  an Eleven to seven drubbing  because many a baseball play-  firs' future has been ruined with  less than what I could say about  this game. r  Port Mellon had a commanding lead of six runs to nil, it  then became a seven to one  game in favour of our heroes.  There the story ends as far as  Port Mellon were concerned,  ^there was an avalanche of ten  runs to nil, from the sixth  inning  on.  The announcer tells me that  only one of the eleven runs  scored by Woodfibre was of the  earned variety.   And  so,  before  Wilson Creek  by Minus Three  John, son of Mr. and Mrs. J.

Don Richardson, visiting at  the Worral cottage with David  Worrall, had gone fishing in  spite of the rough sea,/ and  David's protests. He had left  the cottage during the noon  hour, and when by approximately six o'clock had not  returned, David, knowing the  boat had but half a tank of,gas,  had put in a call to the R.C.M.P.  office in Gibsons.  Meantime, the young fisherman had gone up, the coast  towards Roberts Creek, instead  of Gower as he had announced.  David enlisted the neighbours  in a watching brief, and Mrs.  Fallows spotted him, in evident  trouble, coming around the  rocks at Byng Camp.  Mr. Harold Wyke, of Surrey,  also holidaying at Mrs. Lau's,  realizing the trouble anyone  would have in. launching a  small boat in the waves then  running, swam out and climbed  into the boat, and rowed, after  tying down a rowlock that kept  working loose, until, he had  Richardson within beaching distance of the Worrall cottage.  Richardson  had  borrowed, gas  near  Roberts   Creek,   hut   had  swamped the boat in beaching,  ���and  could not  start  the motor  again.
