Thursday August 19, 1954  Eighth Year  of Publication:  Recreation Areas  Interested people in the  Egmont district wrote the  Forestry Department in Victoria, pointing out he lack of  park and playground facilities  there. They received from the  Deputy ��� Minister the following  reply:  "We can advise that this department has carried out rather  extensive examinations of potential recreation areas on the  Sechelt Peninsula, and . while  no reserve has beem established  in the vicinity of Waugh Lake,  some eighteen areas have been  set aside or are under consideration, in that district.  "Under the circumstances we  feel that the recreational needs  of the anticipated increase in  population of the Sechelt and  Jervis Inlet region, has not been  overlooked and, while funds  for extensive early development may not be available, we  have every hope that adequate  lands are being set aside to  paeet future needs.  "Nevertheless, we will have  our pesonnel examine the possibilities of Waugh Lake area  when -they are next in that  district,. and we wish to take  this opportunity to thank you  for your interest in this matter"  /  Last Sunday night was "Burglars' Night" in Gibsons,: when  i five places of business, including the Post Office, were entered  and robbed. The biggest loss was discovered by the staff of the  Elphinstone Co-Operative Store, where a double order of tobacco  | had just been received.  ?>&��&&&*&? - ,w_;    X^^^^^^^-^J&Z^  Large Tanker  In At  Hopkins  What is thought to be the  largest vessel ever to dock at  Hopkins Landing, was the  tanker "Vancouver Imperial",  which came in Tuesday, August  17th. She was laden with two  tanks, each. 13,500 gallon capacity, for the Allen and Barter  Imperial Oil Storage at Hopkins, to be added to the three  already installed.  Alf   Ritchey   and   his   equipment unloaded  and moved the  tanks   to   their   stands   during  the morning.  MALDY THOMAS  REACHES  DENMARK  A letter has been received by  Mrs. Carlson, presently holidaying  in Gibsons, from Maldy Thomas,  on his scholarship tour in Scandinavia.  Maldy has had a really rough  trip going over. The boat was not  a large one, and struck some stormy  seas. We are hoping to hear more,  and Mrs. Carlson, with whom Maid-  win stayed in Vancouver, has promised to keep us posted.

Approximately   six   hundred  dollars in  tobacco   stock   were  missing.  NEW STORE  ENTERED  The M&W Store, in operation less than a week under its  new ownership, was entered by  way of the front door. The lock  had been forced there, and the  door casing split. There seemed  lo be no disturbance of stock  there.  Only petty cash was  in  to the float,  and there was no  storm to break a line. Nor was  there broken end of line on the  float.

FERRY CAFE ON LIST  The front door lock of the  Ferry Cafe, also im Bal's Block,  was forced right from the frame  when the theives made entry  there.

Believe it or not. there  is good reason for such a request.  Recently, Mrs. Lontit was playing  golf in Vancouver, and had the good  fortune to make a bole in one. The  following day, while playing, friends  surrounded her to ask ho~w one  played to score a hole In one.  Laughingly, Mrs, Lontit explained  how she had played her ball, and  demonstrated her drive.  You guessed it. She made auother  'Hole in One'. Since ihen Mrs.  Lontit has been the recipient of an  overwhelming array-of gifts' from  ardent golfing entb��siasts and admirers, and has received the above  request to sit for Ripley's toluimi.  stock of chewing gums, as well  as   her   petty    cash    of    about  twenty dollars.

The postal staff on Monday  morning found that the building had been entered, and the  drawer locks all forced. A small  quantity of stamps and money  orders, Jim Marshall reports,  have been taken.  No evidence of the means of  entry to the Post Office was  available, the staff stating that  I there were no signs of forced  j locks or windows.

Phone Gibsons 45W  Sox 128 Gibsons British Columbia  '��(  iLonaid  Safely in the water has been a theme of our editorials  lor some time past, but we have directed most of our points  towards those who swim, or children about floats, in small  ��>oats etc.  ^ We have ben aware for some time past that there has  been another hazard to take the pleasure from the sea but  yte had been led to believe that the local. constabulary and  ���other officials had been able to deal with the situation. It  has been forcibly drawn to our attention that they have not.  Those people who use power boats, and think in their  juvenile way that the smartest thing they can do is to create  ^ disturbance upon the water, without regard to either the  comfort or safety of others, are as much out of place as the  person driving foolishly on the highway, and should be dealt  Iftith. in the same manner.  The bright lad who dunked himself in the harbour at  Cibsons recently was a .perfect example of the people of  ;whom we speak. They play in all waters, it would seem,  imagining it a humorous thing when they cause inconvenience, discomfort or dismay to others in small boats who are  disturbed by the wash of their amateurish pranks. That this  fellow was thrown into the sea himself was fitting justice,  which might well be meted out as standard treatment to all  who are guilty of this folly.  It would not be necessary to have them foul themselves  in their own anchor lines, because we do believe even they  are capable of learning courteous behaviour and the rules  of the sea, and after all death by drowning usually causes  someone else considerable trouble and expense.  It should be the business of everyone owning and using  ���������craft' whose speed and maneuverability can cause such  -trouble among other small craft either, moored or in use, to  -discover how smoothly they can be operate'd, and with what  Kittle disturbance to cithers. To plead that ''We didn't realize''  :3s a poor excuse indeed.  Radio News  by Pairicia Frew  There's one in every crowd  is what CKWX RADIO Farm  Director, Norm Griffin, _ says  when   he's   discussing   farmers.  In this case, he was referring  to the athletes he had met out  at Empire Village.  Norm spent many days out at  the Village - talking with the  athletes and discussing everything from dairying in Jamaica  (and milk is, surprisingly  enough, a favorite among Jamaicans) to fruit growing in  Uganda. He also got to talk  with members of the Fijian, the  Bahaman,   the  Trinidadian   and  Peggy  McDonald  And   Opal  ' ,-*"' 'I A-  AA&A     A\V      *   <.  the Pakistan teams. These inter-  . i views were taped and used for  Norm's    early    morning    show,  Farm Fare.  Agriculture  in  these  countries  is   much   more   primitive   than  we   know  it  here.   In  Fiji,  for.  instance,   it   is   not   uncommon  for a farmer to work his land  with only a plough and a pair  of bullocks to aid him. And in  Pakistan,    irrigation   still   uses  the    centuries    old    system    of  bullock   powered  waterwheels.  Three out of the six athletes  that     Norm     interviewed     are  agricultue graduates - a goodly  number    when    you     consider  these   countries   are  supposedly  backward education-wise.  Now that the B.E.G. is over  Norm is looking forward tc  meeting a whole new batch of  farmers  in  the  P.N.E.   crowd!!!  [i Whose Interest  The spectacle of Powell River Stages driving over the  mew Highway from the Ferry, with closed doors, according  fco the franchise granted by the P.U.C. may soon be a comma on sight along the Peninsula. Two busses on the Lower  IFerry, and in the rush periods, four or more, heading towards  Van couver, will scarcely add to the number of cars making  'the crossing, but in the light of the actions of "the Public  "Utitilities Commission, that is almost inevitable.  For years., many of them unproductive financially, Cecil  Lawrence has operated the Sechelt Mcttor Transport, and has  .given excellent service, for the numbers of passengers travelling. Through the years when the highways were really most  ���difficult to travel, and when financial returns were small,  the S.M.T. continued to function regularly.  Now when there might reasonably be some returns from  the ex/tension of the travelsble mileage, when the Transport  Company has equipped itself with vehicles and personnel to  handle the traffic, based upon a reasonable supposition that  the   company   wiith   the  vehicles,  drivers,   experience,   and  offers of superior service at lower rates, would gain the franchise, a company which has not even sufficient vehicles to  carry out its projected smaller service, is granted the franchise instead.  The Pender Harbour area, which would have gained a  great deal from the two trips a day schedule offered by Mr.  Lawrence, will now be able to watch the traffic go by, or as  ;an alternative, become an adjunct of the Pulp and Paper  town, a sort of suburb of Saltrey Bay, and travel to the  highway in hopes that the "closed door" clause may be lifted,  :snd the Powell River Stages take them in.  There may be some reasons behind the decision of the  Public Utilities Commission which do not meet the eye. The  Teply to the Pender Harbour Board of Trade does not indicate what these may be. We are, in consequence, left to our  own surmising.  Notice To  Contractors  Tenders are invited for digging a ditch on the newly  cleared portion of the grounds at the Elphinstone  Junior-Senior High School at Gibsons, B.C.

Returning from attendance at  meetings of the Dominion Coun  cil of the Canadian Legion,  B.E.S.L. and the 15th Dominion  Convention of the organization,  held in Toronto, August 1st to  7th, Robt Macnicol reports that  the recent conference was the  largest ever held in the twenty  eight years history of the  Legion.  With nearly nine hundred  delegates present representing  the ten Canadian Commands  and the five United States Commands of the organization,  much important work was  completed during the five days  stay in the Royal York Hotel.  Toronto.  A welcome was extended to  the delegates by the Premier  of Ontario, and the Mayor of  Toronto, and the Horn. Hugues  Lapointe, Minister of Veteran's  Affairs and other government  officials were in attendance at  the Convention.  The most important legislation dealt wiith was the War  Veterans Allowance proposal  of the Legion. While giving  respectful attention to the explanations cf the Minister of  Veteran's Affairs in regards to  the failure of the government to  pay attention to the Canadian  Legion's recommendations at  the last session of the House of  Commons, the. convention again  went on record as reaffirming  the proposals of the organization covering an increase in  permissable income and in the  basic rate now paid to recipients  of the allowance.  Tlie delegates present urged  greater pressure on members of  parliament and the cabinet in  Ottawa with a view to having  remedial legislation adopted  without further delay, feeling  that the group of veterans and  widows concerned can no  longer continue existing on the  present allowances.  In reply to the address of the  Minister of Veterans Affairs.  Robt. Macnicol. senior B.C.  representative on' the Dominion  Council of the Legion, in his  remarks had this to say "The  men suffering most at the pres-  Convention Of  School Trustees To  scuss CurriouSom  Curriculuum,   e d,u c a t i o n a 11  finance    and    teacher    recruit-j  ment, the big three problems in ;  education   in   British   Columbia  today, will be key topics when;  the    British    Columbia    School  Trustees'   Association   holds   its  golden   jubilee    convention    at  Penticton    September    29th    to  October 1st.  Austin I. Curtis of Victoria..  BCSTA representative on the  government - trustee - teacher  committee,which has dealt with  curriculum for many years, will  be chairman when the wide-  open Question of taday's school  subjects comes up. It is a live  subject with all B.C. school  boards and may produce lively  criticisms and defences of the  present curriculum and its objectives.  A.D. Rundle of Chilliwack,  chairmani of the Trutees' educational finance committee, will  direct the discussion of this subject, another major problem  for trustees, their councils and  the department of education.  Problem of meeting the shortage of teachers will be emphasized in the "Teacher Recruitment" session over which  BCSTA Vice-President R.H.  Reeve of Victoria will preside.  Mr. Reeve has been working  with the B.C. Teachers' Federation in seeking means of attracting more students to the teaching prpfessioi.  Thirty-two resolutions will  be presented to the convention, j  Expansion of the branch setup withini the B.C. Association  will be another major subject  for delegates, and several separate branch meetings are on  the convention program.  B.C.

He felt that the veterans  would not make any strides on  their request until %,the Ottawa  Government disassociates the  legislation on behalf of veterans  from the old age pension legislation.  In 1930, when the Legion  accepted the present legislation  the veterans were in such dis  Thursday August 19, 1954  The Coast News  record" discussion on the evening before the opening of the  convention.  The Minister assured them  that the matter was still under  consideration by the Cabinet.  with a view to finding some  procedure whereby the hard  pressed cases may receive some  assistance.  Another important matter that  created almost a full day's  debate was the future of the  "Legionary" the national publi-.  cation of the Canadian Legion.  The final decision was, that as  from January 1st, 1956, the  magazine would be supplied to  every member of the organization and included in the member's    yearly    dues.

Mr. Macnicol said.  The Hon. Mr. Lapointe, recognizing that British Columbia  had a very definite grievance  in connectioi with the present  rate of allowance paid, and the  large number of recipients in  the Province, adopted the  rather unusual procedure of  meeting the seventy six delegates from B.C. in an "off the  two hundred thousand copies,  the subscription will be reduced to ninety cents per year.  The convention urged that  the Kennedy report on Canada's  Reserve Armed Forces be published immediately and strongly  opposed the present plan of the  government in regards to reorganization of the Reserve  Force in Canada. The delegates  again; reaffirmed the ��� Legion's  stand in favor of National Selective Service, whereby every  able bodied young citizen would  undergo a certain period of  training.  iassan s  Store  For  Fishermen's   Supplies  Sports And Commercial  Summer Groceries  Shoes And Clothing  Agents For  BAPCO ..PAINTS  Phone  11-U  PENDER  HARBOUR  ''Duo-Therm'?

At    Copper    Cove,    close    to  Horseshoe Bay,  a boat  answering the description of the Dolly  was    located,    docked    at    the  beach.

While ��nhwDkers were rushing  to the seeme from all sides his'  13-year old brother dived in  after him and had -him safely  on. the doek before the child  knew what had happened.

The  presentations were made by the  President, Mrs. Len Hambly.  Recipients  were:  Mrs. Don Cameron, who was  the first President of the Auxiliary, and who is the only  original member who is still  active, and has been since the  formation of the auxiliary in  1937; the second went to Mrs.  Art Dingman, who was made a  life member when she was  forced by ill health to retire in  1948. Her pin was accepted for  her by Miss E. Simmons, Miss  Simmons herself received the  third Life Membership pin. For  many years she was Secretary  Treasurer, and later, Treasurer  of the Auxiliary.  Mrs. Cameron told the audience that in 1937, the hospital  was in poor financial state, and  that then there was. talk of  closing it up. Dr. Martinoff,  who was then in charge, suggested the formation of an auxiliary to assist.  A general meeting was called  in the Harbour, and men,  women, boys and girls all  joined in and took ��� an active  part. Mrs. Cameron was  appointed President, and a  teacher, Mr. Herb Smith was  the Secretary Treasurer. It was  thought that some money might  be raised to help the Hospital,  and it would seem from the  records through the years that  i they had been very successful.  As in 1937, the Hospital is  short of linens again. The Auxiliary has just paid a bill of  over two hundred dollars for  one supply, and has agreed to  foot the bill for another list of  linen that has been requested.

They are all thoroughly delighted  with Gibsons during their short  visit.  Stan Allibone reports that. the,.  Budgie; which had escaped from  their home six weeks ago has now  returned, apparently none the  worse for his holiday somewhere  in the  neighborhood.

C. from England five years ago where he specialized in the development of grasslands, Mr. Lewis has broadcast over  the CBU on that subject with Tom  Leach. Mr. and Mrs. Lewis with  Mrs. R.

Several members of the Jackson  family gathered in Vancouver to  say regretful farewell to the Ewart  Harveys who have started the long  journey back to Cape Town, South  Africa by way of New York, England and France.

Port Mellon took an early  lead in the night cap and have  only themselves to blame for  losing the game. They just did  not play the type of ball which  was needed to beat Woodfibre,  and lost it" 4 to 3.  Having the playoffs here has  proved that we play just as  good a calibre of ball as they  do elsewhere, and it is still the  breaks that make a ball game.  The second game may have  been.lost through the excitement  of the players, as in my opinion  they tried a few "unconscious"  plays like trying to stretch a  three bagger ino a home run,  getting caught off base, going  home on an infield hit etc.  When a team has a three run  lead they shouldn't be taking  chances, put playing the cinches  and protecting the lead.  My first compliment of the  season to the umpires, the game  was well handled, keep it up  boys, it improves the game.  . I understand that a certain  first baseman will look before  he tags in the future. It was a  nice play anyway Bob.

Roberts Creel-  people have always enjoyed  this site, and im the past have  done considerable work clearing blackberry vines and brush  from it, to keep it open for the  enjoyment of the people.  The crew of 24 boys under  the foremanship of Don Caruth-  jers of Chilliwack, have made  the Park a place of natural  beauty, with their clearing,  making of the road and cleaning up of underbrush and  debris. Elphinstone Park is  available for the public to enjoy, and will be under the  supervision of the Forestry  Branch (Parks Division) from  now on.  The Campsite, just off the  highway west of the Elphinstone Road, has been; a big  project. It will not be altogether  completed this year, but several  of the camping spots will be  available for use.  The boys have cut timber  from the large loop of road, and  have levelled each campsite,  cleared a parking spur, and  already have spread and raked  fine gravel over several of  them. Trails have been cut  through the woods to the "outdoor plumbing" whis is under  construction. On Saturday, Jim  Rusk, with his bulldozer, was  busy clearing stumps from the  roadway, and levelling and  grading.  The stumps remaining on the  Loop are evidence of the  amount, of work accomplished  by this young crew, but Don is  sure they'll all be gone within  the two weeks yet remaining  for them to work.  According to Carruthers, the  crew will be back on the site  to finish the project next summer, marking the completion  of the first in a series of such  campsites on the  Peninusla.  The woods are kept in as  nearly their natural state as  possible, with a good entry  road, a good gravelled loop of  road   off  which   the   campsites  Standing Of  Local Ball Teams  The   Mid   Peninsula    Softball  League   has   almost   completed  its   regular  schedule   of  play,  and.: as of last Monday, August  16th, the Team "Standings were  as follows.

VANCOUVER  This advertisement is not published or displayed by the Liquor Contra! 8cctrd or by the Government of British Columbia 8  The   Coast  News  Thursday August 19, 1954  ugan  The High  by L.S.J.  Any reference herein to persons  now living and slurs on those departed are perhaps true and may be  so regarded.  The tug "Shamrock", Capt. Hicks,  had piled up a vast tow of cedar  from Loughborough Inlet at Cas-  gidy's Landing. The destination of  this tow had been Centre Bay, but  the Captain's timing of a sou'east  Btorm had been faulty, and consequently he had not got round  Gower Point, winding up thereby  at Cassidy's.  The ghouls of the beach combing  fraternity were generally on the  qui vive for such occasions, and  When the 'Shamrock' lumbered up  to .the wharf at Gibsons, most of  the boys were there looking for  business.  After hearing the Captain's story  a deal was made, even to picking  up his towline that he had to let  go. The first calm spell, and we  were out there and it was a sight  to behold, about a mile of beach  piled high with logs, boomsticks  and chains all hither and yon.  We got the towline first and in  the course of time between storms  we gradually cleaned everything  up. At least that was the supposition, but then and even now, there  is the question of the unmarked  logs. These logs were segragated  and kept out of sight and were regarded as treasure trove. I suppose the best word for such action  is freebootery, as any logs not  marked have no legal owner and  by the judicial use of sharp rocks  many faint brands were quietly  erased.  After a suitable time had elapsed,  these maverick logs were towed to  town for disposal and it was on one  of these excursions that we fell  foul of this mulligan. The two boats  had pulled out bright and early  With just a mugup, and it was not  till we were well out before the  thoughts of grub made it apparent  that each thought the other would  have  something in  the locker.  This dilemna caused no concern  except a stream of good natured  turgid profanity directed at all and  sundry, but it did result in closer  investigation that revealed some  Btale bread and a black pot down  in the hold with remnants of a mul-  Winner of an Honorable Mention  in the International Calvert House  Competition, this new kind of a  l^-storey house gives its occupants  a great sense of space. It is designed as a- simple rectangle by  Eric Defty, a British architect currently at Harvard University.  Its garage is located beneath the  west end of the dwelling. .An old-  fashioned large kitchen is adjacent  to play and dining space. The  children's bedrooms are at the opposite side of the house from the  living room and by 'arranging the  clothes closets may be used either  as three single bedrooms or as a  double bedroom, a single bedroom,  and a playroom. Upstairs is the  parents' sitting room and off it,  their bedroom.  ligan adhering to the sides, and  Ike said it was duck and about a  week old. We thought we could  handle it, altho it had that odor of  closed hatches and burnt oil that  is   so familiar  in  fish   boat  holds.  Another factor however was plain.  There was not enough for four of us,  so Doug grabs an old rusty single-  barrelled shotgun and whacked the  first seagull that came close enough  to be picked up.  Here is where the payoff came,  and to witness one of these sea  fowl being drawn and quartered by  old Doug was far from an appetizing sight, but he revelled in it. As  personal cleanliness was not one  of his most desirable traits, one  was, in the parlance of those days,  nearly gagged by it, but to show  any squeamishness would have been  very much out of place. However  the two "Newfie" chefs made light  of it and said they were raised on  seagulls, which in their, case had a  modicum of truth, but what they  ate in Newfoundland and what we  had in the pot was a different kind  of eagle so to speak.  At that stage of life and being  somewhat of a gourmet I did have  a go at it and once was enough.  I can still recall the exotic flavor  of that mulligan and it was a theme  ��  for comment whenever we met in  later years. Ike is still around  somewhere but old man sea claimed  Doug, and as for snuffy Frank, he  will see Limehouse no more.

Sunshine Coa:  Traffic Speeds Op  Motorists will be delighted  >with the increase of five miles  per hour permitted now on the  main highways of the area. New  signs have gone up along most  stretches, designating a 'speed  limit of forty miles per hour,  instead of the former thirty  five.  Slow zones have been shortened along the Davis Bay and  Selma Park ereas, and the  speed limit there is now twenty  five miles, instead of the former  twenty. This fact will please  motorists, and may empty the  columns of the Police Court  News, who knows?  Slow zones through Sechelt,  Gibsons, and at schools will  remain the same.  Pedestrians as well as motorists should take note of these  changes for their own protection, and children within the  slow zones as well as on the  highways should be taught the  correct side of the road for  walking, when they must be on  the highway.  i��aBa������m^eaWH_u_i_u_-  THREE   TIMES  LUCKY  Earl Bingley reports that for the  third time in succession, he has  had prompt results from one insertion of a 'Classified' in the Coast  News.
