Array *\  Provincial  Library  Victoria,   B.   OB  SERVING THE GROWING SECHELT SUNSHINE COAST PENINSULA FROM SQUAMISH TO PENDER HARBOUR.  Published in Gibsons,  B.C.  Volume 8, Number 40.  Thursday, October 7th, 1954.  Eighth Year of Publication*  Alf Garry's home, at West  Sechelt, was totally destroyed  by fire om Sunday morning,  Oct. 3rd, following an explosion in an oil heater. Alf op-  erates the Peninsula Dairy,  which serves the area.  The fire siren was sounded  at 8:40 a.m., and the Sechelt  Volunteer Fire Brigade, Vasr on  the scene in fast time, but were  unable to save the house. So  rapid and so furious was the  fire, that young Irvin, at home  with his father, had one foot  burned getting out.  The firemen were able to  prevent the fire from spreading  to    the    outbuildings,    all     of  ; which, including the milk cool-  j ing plant, were saved. None of  the  neighboring    houses    were  burned. -  Mrs. Garry was in Vancouver  at the time, and arrived home  Sunday afternoon. Their small  daughter had been staying with  friends overnight, and had not  yet come home, so Alf and Irwin were alone at home.  It is reported that some insurance was carried on the  home. Meantime, plans are a-  foot to hold a benefit dance,  under the sponsorship of the  Sechelt Fire Brigade, at the  Roberts Creek Hall on Saturday,  October 9th.

Somebody had made a  start in that part of Gambier  Island with the proverbial cow,  pig, and chickens, and had, as  usually was the case in these  'days,- not made a go of it. In  so" doing they had incurred a  feed bill with some feed company in town which was se- j  cured by a very dubious bill of  sale. -When we entered the arena the feed bill was a dim  memory and the feedmen had  written it off.  In the meantime the*,cow had  }a calf and the farmer had, left  ! look people up even if you did  not know them very well.  They were interested in local  happenings and this was the  only, means of finding out  things.  A few days later the weather  being suitable we gathered up  some tools and rigging and got  away to ah'early start for Halkett Bay. For our purpose we  had selected an old log landing  with a large maple growing on  it for the final act, handy to  the beach. My partner had gone  back in the ^woods to round up  Taurus and company and bring  them down. to-., the landing  where the offices, required at  these functions could    be    car-,  dressed an animal in the water and naturally there were  some difficulties but it was a  good experience. We made  ourselves more comfortable  with the aid of a good beach  fire and after getting dry we  made a leisurely departure towards home. Taurus made a  fine carcass of beef when we  took it away next day.  Forests  Need- Harvesting  The volume of wood in a ma-^  ture forest does    not    increase.  Proper    cutting    permits    new  growth and  a    perpetual    harvest.  Vandalism is an ugly word. It is ugly because of the  meaning associated with it. The word is derived from a race  of people who lived centuries ago. They were known as Vandals, a Teutonic race on the southern shore of the Baltic  who early in the Fifth century ravaged Gaul and overran.  Spain and Northern Africa, also pillaged Rome and despoiled it of its treasures and civilization.  It appears somewhat anachronistic that after having  developed our civilization to the point where we are spend:  ing more money on educational facilities than ever before,  that the word should raise its ugly head ��� even in a delightful place like Gibsons.  The people of Gibsons are not less educated than the  people of Vancouver or any large centre one cares to mention. Vandalism raises its head in those places too.  It could be that the type of education received by the  younger generation over the last 20 or so years has not contained enough emphasis on respect ��� respect for things  and people. But this is by no means the answer to the problem of vandalism because all vandals1 are not necessarily  young people. There must be some latent trait within some  which makes them want to smash a bottle because it is lying  on the ground, complete in itself or smash a pane of glass  because it is the only one. left.  The letter in the last issue of The Coast News from  Robert Burns, the municipal clerk, outlined the experience  of the Kinsmen Club in striving to do good for the community. The club installed toilet facilities on the Gower  Point road playground, a commendable objective, naturally.  In the eyes of some wits, wags or despoilers it meant a  field day in the art of vandalism..  What have these individuals gained by their act or  acts. Have-they encouraged any other club or body of. individuals in helping make Gibsons a better place in which to  live? Have they done themselves more harm than good by  forcibly drawing to the attention of those who want to improve things that they are just wasting their efforts?  It is about time the individuals who created such!with some fair arable land  damage at the playground, took stock of their altitude to- I around it, and it often attracted  wards life in general. If we were all to. debase ourselves to  point where we became vandals in a general way, who  would scream the loudest? Naturally it would be the individuals who thought it smart to damage those playground  facilities.  and the years  rolled    by    and | rje(j  out. The usual method   of  the calf was a bull. Taurus.jiad j shooting, like most of the hunt-  matured to a sizeable beef by  this time and as is the nature of  these bovines, had acquired  ���some nasty and vicious habits.  He regarded the shoreline v: of  Halkett as his own particular  bailiwick and was prepared, to  assert his rights by force of  horns. The rare visitors to the  Bay were often peremptorially  put to flight or treed on a  stump. This  eventually led    to  complaints  to  the  authorities.  *    *    *  The ownership trail was very  dim but eventually led to the  feed company which looked up  the files and sadly admitted  that they guessed they- were  the owners of Taurus, by this  time an extremely handsome;  crossbred Holstein bull. The  problem was for them to find  ways and means out of the dilemma. In one sense they were  lucky in the fact that cattle  were in strong demand and if  they, could find someone willing to bring Taurus to heel as  beef there might be even some  profit in it, or at least a liquidation of debt and a removal of  a source of annoyance.  I had some stature at that  time as the sort of person who  could take care of these things  and I received a letter from  the owners about their problem. We got in touch with a  third party for the sale of ythe  carcass and we agreed to attend to the matter. Now H^-  kett Bay is a natural    harbour  BUS TRANSPORTATION  Editor:  In your issue of September  23, Mr. F. D. Pratt, a director  of Sechelt Motor Transport,  Ltd., among other things suggested to me that it is improper  to make public information concerning the appeal" regarding  the bus liciiise recently issued  to Powell River  Stages Ltd.  Mr. Editor, the hearing in  the Board Room of the Motor  '- Carrier Branch was public.  The information, brought out at  the -hearing is public, and  there is no reason why the  public should not be made  aware of any infomation pertaining to the appeal which  was launched by Sechelt Motor  Transport Ltd.  Powell River Stages Ltd.,  made no mention of this issue  in your paper until the president of the Sechelt company  made a public appeal through  your columns, asking your local citizens to write to the cabinet in support of their appeal.  Are we to understand that it  is proper for* the Sechelt firm  to do these .things, but improper for the Powell River firm  to make a reply? How can any  group make proper representations to the cabinet without  full knowledge of the issue at  hand?  The Sechelt Motor Transport  Ltd.  charges in its appeal that  See Page 7  For Real Car Buys  the Powell River firm is not  qualified to operate the through  service. It also charges that it  lacks equipment. If the Sechelt  Motor "transport Ltd. is so  j well-equipped, and if it posses  such . superior knowledge in  the operation of public transportation, then" why is that  vaunted equipment not used to  give the pe.ople- in that distri-  the kind of service they want?  Why blame an outside firm for  their poor service \ while their  equipment, gathers' dust? Isn't  it just a. little ridiculous?  At the public hearing on the  29th of June, the president of  Sechelt Motor Tahsport volunteered to c'ocoperate with Powell River Stages Ltd. if the  latter was successful ini its application. After the application  was approved, this company  made several sincere attempts  to co-operate'with the" Sechelt  firm through their territory but  the president of the Sechelt  firm evidently changed his  mind and decided instead to  fight it out. This course left us  no other way than to , defend  ourselves. Force begets force.  By supporting the.appeal of  Sechelt Transport Ltd. without  full knowledge of all circumstances involved, some organizations may ^e placed in an  embarrassing position.  I suggest that anyone wishing to obtain full data on the  subject should , purchase the  ���transcript of the public hearing  which took place on June 29.  It was from this information  that the Public Utilities Commission made the decision to  approve  our application.  E.

The time of our  visit there was no one there  and we made a day of it looking over the country and visiting the Weigands and the Hjor-  thoys, both long time settlers  in those parts. It was  more or  ing stories say, by a well directed shot, is humane, and as  a rule quite simple and efficient. In view of the bull's nature I had figured if anything  untoward happened I could  play ring around rosy with the  maple in between us till a  more favorable opportunity  presented itself.  What actually happened was  that I stood to one side and I  don't think he saw me, and as  ���he came to where I figured  would be about right I was  very particular to take careful  aim and. fire. To my utter consternation instead of collapsing  he reared in the air and made  a half turn and plunged down  the old roll way a distance of  50 feet and fell into four feet  of water. On top of this he  turned seaward and with a  strong stroke   starred    off    for  Vancouver.  *     *    *  We were now in a fine fix  and fast action was needed,  and no time was lost in launching the skiff to head him back  to the beach. We took the gun  and gradually overhauled him,  and had no trouble turning him.  back. .1 don't know what  would have happened if we  had had to shoot him in the  water. He might have sunk.  Our tactic so far was successful but we had to be on the  beach ahead of him as a reception committee. Anyhow this  was done and this time we  made a job of it. We now had  to tow him in the water until  we got to somewhere where  there was something overhead  that we cotild use to hoist him  up. We were in the water up  to our middles and while the  body was in the' water we  could move it around some.  We eventually made it to a  small cedar that would have to  do,   and from  there  on  it  was  L  Sunshine   Coa^t.   T   -��������'  NO.   76   I.O.O.F.

Students Hear  U President  University of British Columbia President Norman A. M.  MacKenzie told an assembled  student body that he hoped  they would achieve "wisdom  and tolerance, and the other  qualities which are the hallmark of the educated man and  woman."  The University Auditorium  was filled for the President's  address which marked the formal opening of the University  year.  In outlining his theme, "freedom" Dr. MacKenzie said: "one  of the tests of freedom and of  our belief in it is our willingness to allow others to do, say  and write things that we dislike, and even hate ��� and protect them in the exercise of  these activities . . . belive me,  that is not easy to do."  Dr. MacKenzie told his audience that the University assumed, with some limitations,  that each student was responsible for his own life, behavior  and activities.  *���>'        AOy&pAASA'  END OF SEASON  BARGAINS?

You can cash a cheque or  bank your money vyithout leaving the seat of your car at the  curb-teller which the Bank of  Montreal  has  installed   as  part  of its newly opened main, office  at London, Ont. It saves endless time and trouble looking  for a parking space and queuing up inside the bank, and  most transactions are completed in less than a minute. The  first curb-service banking unit  in Canada, this new installation)  was designed by the bank's  chief architect in collaboration  with the manufacturers,  and is  the only one of its kind in the  world. Picture shows London's  mayor Allan Rush, an old customer of the bank, who cut the  ribbon signalizing the opening  of "Canada's most modern  banking office," making the  first deposit in the new bank.  Serving him at the teller's window is Gordon Ball, B of M  president, who 30 years before  was teller-accountant at the  little Ailsa Craig branch, 17  miles from London. Standing  by the curb-teller are broadcaster Ward Cornell and B.C.  Gardner, chairman of the  bank's board of directors.

Twenty-three thousand miles'  and twenty countries later,  they are back again. After experiencing the worst summer  Europe has had in over eighty  years, Canada, Sechelt, and  home  look wonderful.  Aboard the Furness liner  "Pacific Unity," the Maynes  sailed from Vancouver on April  10, their first stops being New  Westminster, Woodfibre and  Nanaimo for lumber. At Port  Angeles, pulp was added and  them all down the west coast  ports produce was taken on  board, from cotton at Portland  to raisins and fruits, and 60,000  cases of oranges at Los Angeles for Rotterdam. Cargo was  bound for London, Holland and  Belguim. Stops were made at  various American and Mexican  ports as well as Central Ameri-  can places.  Wherever there was a stop of  a few hours or more all the passengers went ashore to see the  towns. They noted with surprise the armed American policemen in some of these ports.  The Panama Canal was found  intensely interesting particularly the method of moving the  ships from lock to lock with  small tractors known as iron  mules.  On the way across the Atlanr  tic the ship stopped at the Azores and the next port was Antwerp, Belguim. In the three  days in Belgium, the Maynes  visited the old battlefields,  which have been preserved as  a World War 1 memorial.  Three days in Holland proved delightful. They found the  country so clean and prosperous  looking in comparison with  Belgium.  London, England, was the  next stop, and after seven  weeks, Mr. and Mrs. Mayne  were pleased to be ashore, despite the rains.  In England, everyone seems  to be working and prosperous,  but they do speak of the heavy  taxes. Mr. and Mrs. Mayne enjoyed their visits ito various  parts of England, and particularly Liverpool, their home  towrti. They were shocked at  the still remaining evidences of  damage from the last war, but  seemed impressed by the recovery of much of the country.  Scotland and Ireland too  were visited."  At   every possilble    moment  and place, Jack took pictures  of the countries visited, but  the rains made results uncertain.  On the return trip, they  broke their journey at Montreal for a short side trip to  New York, and thence home  across the continent.  Both look wonderfully refreshed after their holiday, but  are glad to be back home.  V."' Going "to-x^&i  NANAIMO?  BLACKBALL  LEAVE HORSESHOE BAY  Daily: 8 a.m., 12 n., 4 p.m., 8 p.m., 12 m.

Babies born today can, expect  t~c live longer than babies born  20 years ago, but the increase  5a life expectancy has been far  greater for girls than for boys.  M. new Canadian life table published by the Ottawa Bureau  <af Statistics shows that 8 3-4  drears have been added tp the  expected life span for females  since 1931, but only 6 1-3 years  ifor males.  Z-ife expectancy at birth had  reached 66.3 years for boys  snd. 70.8 years for girls by  2951. This is a gain for males  ��f 3.3 years since 1941 as com  pared with a gain of 4.5 years  for females. In 1931 the life  expectancy for females was  slightly over 2 years more than  for males. By 1941 the margin  had risen to 3.3 years, and by  1951 to 4.5 years.  Canada's life expectancy  rates are among the highest in  the world, and quite similar to  those of other countries with  highly developed public health  systems. The sex differential in  Canada is also about the same  as in these other high-ranking  countries.

It will be seen that the  position of the different countries varies with the sexes. Canada ranks seventh in male life  expectancy and fifth in female  life expectancy. In both cases  the Canadian figures are more  than double those of India,  where life expectancy at birth  is lowest. India is the only one  of the 20 countries where male  life expectancy is greater than  female life expectancy.  Once a child has passed the  first year of life, its life expectancy increases appreciably. At  one year of age a male Canadian may on an average expect  to live an additional 68.3 years  old and a bare 1-4 year to a 60-  year old as compared with 6 1-3  years for a newborn infant.  During this period life expectancy for a 5-year old female  gained over 5 1-2 years; for a  20-year old over 4 1-2 years, 2  and 2-3 years for a 40-year old  and 1 1-2 years for a 60-year  old as compared with 8 3-4.yrs.  for a newborn female.  Longevity has improved for  both sexes but more so for females, and at all ages, whereas  there has been only slight improvement for males beyond  middle life. Briefly, there has  been a rapid decline ini the  death rate for infants of both  sexes, and slower declines with  advancing age, so that relatively  stationary  death  rates   have  and a female 72.3, representing  been established from about 50  a gain for the male of two full  years more than its expectation  at birth, and 1 1-2 more years  for a female.  The increases in life expectancy -have been predominantly  at the younger ages and particularly in infancy, diminishing  with advanced age. For example, since 1931, 2 1-2 years  have been added to the life expectancy of a 5-year old male,  1 3-4 years to a 20-year old, almost half a 3'ear  to a  40-year  _���  See Pa^e 7  For Real Car Buys  Peninsula IVSotors  r__  onwards for males    and    from  about   80  for females.  The improvement in life expectancy, particularly among  children and adolescents, is  due 'mainly to the ��� substantial  reduction in? recent years of  mortality from -infectious diseases. On the other hand diseases associated with middle  and old age are much less amenable to control. It is therefore unlikely that improvement  in life expectancy in the future  will be comparable to that of  the last two decades. As roughly 12 percent of- all annual  deaths occur among infants  and an additional 70 percent  among persons over 50 any further  improvement  must     come  as the result of further declines  in mortality from conditions  associated with childbirth and  early infancy, combatting diseases associated with middle  and old age such as heart, artery and kidney diseases and  cancer.

It is possible in certain hardwood types managed on an uneven aged basis that the squirrels, forgetting where they  have cached the seed, may be  responsible for some regeneration. It is more likely, however,  that far better regeneration  would have been obtained from  natural fall of seeds, without  the aid of* squirrels.  Certainly in the average coniferous stand grown on an average or unevenaged basis,  squirrels are a serious pest in  regeneration. of the stand. The  quantity of seed devoured by  one squirrel in one year is serious enough, well exemplified  by some of the very large  cone "dumps" in the white pine  region. Further, if the squirrel  forgets its each, the cones rarely produce any seedlings in>,|  this environment which is very  adverse for their survival.  K.

CORN FLAKES  Corn flakes are still by far  the nation's most popular  ready-to-eat breakfast cereal,  but they have lost*ground to  puffed grains since the war.  Last year Canadians ate about  one-fifth less corn flakes, nearly two and a half times as much  puffed grains as in 1945. Corn  flakes comprised about a third  of all prepared breakfast food  shipments in 1953 as compared  with two-fifths of the .total in  1945, while puffed grains made  up about a fifth as compared  with less than 9 percent eight  years earlier.

SOME. FABRICS WORRY CLEANERS  Each season, fabrics and novelty trimmings which are more  smart than serviceable cause a  crop of claims against launder-  ers and dry cleaners. In self-  defence, the cleaning industry  in Canada has set up its own  central research organization,  The Canadian Reasearch Institute of^Launderers and. Cleaners, which foreswears its members of new fabrics that may  require special handling.'  The institute's Ottawa laboratory analyses damage to articles sent to them and distributes technical bulletins to its  member cleaning firms. For  example, a recent bulletin tells  the cleaner how to avoid shrinking the circular felt skirts in  fashion these days. Another  bulletin warns him of the disastrous effect of moisture on  certain simulated fur trimmings and recommends safe  cleaning  techniques.  Eye-catching fabrics which  apparently were never designed  for a trip to the cleaners are a  ihorror to the dry cleaning industry. Perhaps the biggest  bugbear is taffeta and other  fabrics stiffened with a size  which    dissolves   Mn    cleaning  solvent. Other trouble makers  are flockprints, in which the  raised flock design is merely  glued on with adhesives that  soften in solvent. Then there  are moire effects which are  erased by moisture and painted polka-dots which crack and  peel off.  Even when a fabric and finish are serviceable, the garment's trimmings may not be.  For instance, there are belts  backed with paper, gelatine sequins which dissolve in water  and plastic sequins which dissolve in cleaning solvent,  sponge rubber shoulder pads  that cause color changes in suit  fabrics by chemical reaction  with cleaning fluid. Not long  ago the research institute tested for dry cleaning a widely advertised. ornamental slide fastener decorated with colored  plastic beading. When dipped  in cleaning solvent, ,the beads  dissolved!  The research institute's staff  thinks that most of the new  man-made fibres have diminished rather than added to the  problems of laundries and  cleaners. They are all washable  and their built-in. properties  never vary. Provided they have  been properly- pre-set, even  wool-like synthetic fibres like  "Terylene" are free from shrinkage.  Laundries rriust take care,  however, when finishing shirts  of the newer synthetics since  they glaze when ironed at the  high temperatures used for  linen and cotton. But dry  cleaners learned 30 years ago  how to recognize and clean  acetate successfully, and with  the aid of their experts at Ottawa they should quickly ��� learn  how to handle each new fibre  as it comes along.

Eric Lindwall,  first violin, and Donald Weal  of the thirds are both away  working elsewhere, and the  opening practice had to be reorganized and players regrouped.  This has happened before on  different occasions, ' since the  formation of the orchestra in  1946. Then at the very beginning, there were only five  members for Margo Maclntyre  to whip into shape, and to lead  into playing  as a  group..  Albert Weal was self taught,  and played by ear. Charlie  Maywood had taken a course  of violin lessons by correspondence. Gerry Jervis had been  taught by Miss Maclntyre, and  Vivian Reeves, the pianist, had  not done  any  accompanying.  Reviewing the situation on  Monday, Margo and the other  two remaining of the original  five, just the girls, recalled the  manner in which music had to  be written. The first practice  consisted of the scale of C major, in order that the players  might learn to reatl. Later, in  simple compositions, -rests were  indicated . by little 'ticks' on  the scores,     changes    of    time  were governed only by direction from Margo, having the  group play slower or faster, as  required.  At this time, Margo and  Gerry lived At "Greenacres" at  Roberts Creek, and their kitchen  was the   practice  hall..  The first appearance of this  group as am orchestra was in  the winter of 1946', when the  two main selections played  were "The Road to the Isles,"  and a waltz by Brahms. The  enthusiastic reception by the  audience lent courage, and  from then on the orchestra  grew, as did their ability, and  the scope of their repertoire  increased.  To this group of one musician, Margo; one book-keeper  accountant, Gerry, one farmer-  logger, Albert, one B.C. Power  employee, Charlie, and one  homemaker, Vivian, gradually  were added others, some players, some beginnrs, but all congenial as people, all enjoying  making music together.  Next to join the group were  Nancy Reeves, homemaker,  Stan Fallows, machinist, Jack  MacLeod, plumber, and Dr.  Hugh Inglis. These additions  made necessary the enlargement of the Greenacres kitchen  which was done by. the destruction of one bedroom and the addition of another.

The first actual concert given by the Roberts Creek String  Orchestra was in 1947, at the  Kewpie Kamp, and despite one  of the stormiest, wettest nights  that winter, the hall was packed. The music was mostly  Christmas in theme, and from  time to time, carols were played, in which the audience  joined most heartily.  Since then, violin students  whom Margo taught were added to the group. Geoff Newman, Eric Lindwall, Donald  Weal and latterly Wilson Anderson,  all played with them.  Curly Lucken was recruited  by Charlie Maywood and Jack  MacLeod, who had noticed  among his effects vhen he  moved into his home two violin cases. Curly was simply  brought along to the next practice, and has stayed with it.  Fred Skinner was z mother  employee of the B.C. Power,  and he played with the. group  until he was moved by his  company. Bessie Shaw liked the  idea of the orchestra, and went  to Margo for lessons and joined too.. Bob Carrothers, flautist, played with them too, until  one night, having" laid his flute  on the kitchen stove, found  that unwittingly a fire had  been lit in it. The flute was  never the same again, and Bob  gave up. Last to be added was  Do Wortman, 1952. This was  because the orchestra hacf come  by a double bass, and had no  one to play it.. With her customary courage, Margo asked  Do to come and try, and Do  has been hiding behind the  big fiddle ever since..  In 1948, the Roberts Creek  Orchestra essayed its first concert. The orchestra was, as one  of the members put it, "all  dressed up" for this occasion.  Every last man "had a freshly  laundered white shirt, all the  girls in their nicest array. Peggy Snelgrove, violinist, and Allan Maclntyre, cellist, :': from  West Vancouver, came out as  assisting artists. Programs were  printed,  and  tickets sold.  This presentation of classical  and semi-classical music was  received by the audience with  the utmost pleasure, if memories of hearty applause can be  relied upon.  Since then, the orchestra has  presented three concerts a  year, has played for various  events from Gibsons to Pender  Harbour, and has steadily improved. The highlight of its career to date was a presentation  of chamber music in the little  Legion Hall at Roberts Creek  last spring. There was but a  limited ticket sale, in order that  the audience might not exceed  th accommodation. Betty Allen,  pianist, Allan Maclntyre, cellist, and Ben Short, viola, were  the assisting artists.   -  A program of solos, trios,  quartets and piano quintets and  sonatas was arranged from music by Bach, Brahms, Peter  Warlock and other composers,  and according to the audience,  was. the finest evening of them  all.  Margo, who is orchestra leader, concert master, teacher  and guide, suggests ' that the  reason the group has been so  steady in its application, so  congenial as a gathering, is  probably because it has never  had any funds. Admissions  charged have been a contribution to some local organization,  such as the V.O.N., the Roberts  Creek Legion, the P.T.A., etc.  with only the actual expenses  of hiring a hall or a bus for  transport having been deducted.  There are no �� expenses for  music. Margo writes all her  own orchestrations, ��� scores and  arrangements. The players  maintain their own instruments. Even the weekly lunches, now enjoyed in the new  home on the waterfront, are  contributed by the members in  turn. Consequently, "money is  no object," and the group  play.: happily on.

This is a tragedy which Canada, can ill afford. Such fires  today account for over 20 per-,  ceit of the country's annual  fire loss, and two or three  times this amount in such indirect losses as medical costs,  jobs, wages and production lost  and savings reduced and business failures.  The' manufacturing classification includes a great variety of  industries, each subject to fire  hazads peculiar to its own operations. Such special hazards  can best be controlled by following the advice of a' qualified  safety   engineer.   However,  oth  By Barrie Zwicker  of The Coast News  Why Shool  Things  Out?  The  great    American    newspaperman,      Damon      Runyon,  fought as a foot soldier in the  Spanish-American War of 1898,  in the Phillipines, and    served  as  war  correspondent    in    the  First "World War. He published  a poem on the battle of    Vera  Cruz in    1916    which    showed  that his ideas  on.    war    hadn't  changed since he wrote a poem  on the charge at Marishoa during the Phillipine  Insurrection.  The battle of Vera Cruz was  a punitive expedition. President  Wilson  ordered  the    American  marines   and   sailors    to     take  Vera Cruz because the Mexican  government refused to    render  special honors to the American  flag in atonement for the temporary arrest of American sailors by the Mexican army.

Safety Suggestions  To aid plant management  and employees in preventing  fires caused by these common  hazards, the following important safety precautions are suggested.  Spontaneous Ignition  Rags containing vegetable,  animal or fish oils, or paints,  are subject to spontaneous ignition and start fires in themselves. They should be stored  in tightly closed metal cans, or  hung up with plenty of air  space around them to dissipate  heat. If not needed, such rags  should be removed from the  building or burned after using.  Smoking  and  Matches  Be sure all tobacco or smoking materials are out before  you throw them away.

Ho,  the  buzzard    that    sweeps  o'er Vera Cruz   -������  Knows what we did    at    Vera  Cruz���  Hark to Glory's call!  Ours  are dead at Vera  Cruz���  What was the good of it all?  There is another poem, also  of simple language, but of equal  import, by the Canadian, Albert E. Friedman.  *    *    *  The  Perfect  Youth  He joined the army.  And the youth was examined.  He was clean limbed.  His sight was faultless.  His hearing was perfect.  His mind was alert.  Truly, he was a perfect youth.  So they gave him a uniform  And sent him out  To be shot.  I read these poems the other  night and I wondered about  the situation in our world today. If war wasn't much . use  in 1914 then "What's the good  of it all now?"  Any perfect youth is  supplicated to consider.  Q  Thursday, October 7th, 1954.  The   Coast  News  Canadian factories shipped  108,287 washing machines in  the first half of the year, 18,252  or 17% fewer than in the first  six months of 1953.  FOR   QUICK   RESULTS  COAST  NEWS   CLASSIFIED  Pulp and Paper  is Canada's biggest manufacturing industry from the standpoint of factory value of shipments, which totalled $1,158,-  000,000 in 1952. Slaughtering  and meat-packing followed  with $864,000,000 and non-ferrous smelting and refining" was  a close third with $837,000,000.  Economic Industry  The pulp and paper industry  chiefly uses logs unsuited to, or  not large enough for the production of good lumber.  Biggest Buyer  , Pulp and paper mills contribute more to Canadian welfare  in wages, purchases, exports,  and production than any other  industry.

Page 8  Being interested in any type  of sports this writer has been  making inquiries about the formation of a small basketball  league. ,  The answer has always been  the same "The school board has  the rent so high that we can't  Afford to play a game let alone  practise."  This to me is an appalling  situation. A lovely big hall for  6parts and only about a third  of the athletes on the Peninsula  using it.  School boards are known for  being rather "impossible" in  the handling of the halls but  most of. them can usually give  Way a little and co-operate  With    civic    sports,    especially  See Page 7  For Real Car Buys  Peninsula Motors  with one that would include    a  school team.  Softball proved that organized spectator sports will go over  so there should be a real good  chance for  basketball.  For every youth playing, you  must remember that four or  five will be out watching him  and this could be the answer  to the age old question of 'What  shall we do to-night' as well as  curb the rising tide of juvenile  delinquincy  on  the Peninsula.  If everyone including the  governing body of the school,  would help a little, there is no  reason why a basketball league  and maybe a Pro-Rec Club  could not become a regular  feature  of the community.  Just a word about the big  softball dance coming up. Each  team will have limited number  of tickets, so if you are interested in going you should see  one of the team representatives  now.

So complicated are the  problems associated with the  perfpmance of screw propellors for marine propulsion that  the:.subject has become a fruitful field for theoretical discussion. For this reason,, the literature, is quite extensive and ya  great deal of time and energy  is often expended in obtaining  information on. routine design  & manufacturing problems. Attention therefore is invited to  the above report prepared by  Mr. G. G. M. Carr-Harris of  the Technical Information! Service.
