Array of?f A. B. C  Provincial  Lib  Victoria,   B.   C  SERVING THE GROWING SECHELT SUNSHINE COAST PENINSULA FROM SQUAMISH TO PENDER HARBOUR.  Published in Gibsons, B.C.  Volume 8, Number 42.  Oct.  21,     1954.  Eighth Year of Publication  Speedy work saved the    life  of a fisherman when his   boat  caught   fire    at    Garden   Bay j  in Pender Harbour    about   . 11J  o'clock Friday night. The fish-;  eman, Louis Larson, 66, is. now,  in St. Paul's  Hospital, Vancouver, where hope is    held    out  for his recovery.  - -  Larson was tied at a wharf  when an explosion occurred in  a stove and caused a flash fire.  Mrs. Janet Lyons, nearby, happened to look out of a window  in her home and noticed the j  fire, then heard the man  screaming for help. She imme  diately ran to a nearby Gardeni  Bay hotel and obtained help.  Several persons ran to the  aid of Larson who was screaming with pain from burns caused by flames enveloping his  clothing. Among them were  fishermen friends and one of  them, Hans Larson, managed  to extinguish ..flames on the  man's clothing, but in doing so  received a severely burned  hand. Other persons saved the  boat from complete destruction by using a fire extinguisher.  Joe Helmer, a Pender    Har  bour fisherman, ran for a  stretcher on which the burned  man was immediately carried  to St. Mary's Hospital, nearby,  where he was given immediate  treatment by Dr. John Playfair.  Between the time 'of the fire  and 4 a.m. Saturday morning  four pints of plasma were administered to the suffering  man. Following treatment he  was taken to St. Paul's Hospital in Vancouver where he is  reported to have a 50-50 chance  of recovery.  Dr. Playfair is of the opinion  j the speed with which the man  was. assisted after being noticed  by"; Mrs. Lyons contributed a  great deal towards saving the  life of the man.  .'hi it had not been for the  presence of mind of those who  rushed in to help, Mr. Larson  would have been in a far worse  condition than he is now. In  fact I would suggest his life  was saved by prompt action,"  DTKPlayfair said.  ]\_r. Larson suffered second  and third degree burns to his  entire head, back and right  arm.  <>  PenderHbourRatepayers Have Chalice  B of T Meets   .    <r\  ���   TL   ���   C L      ID      J  to Uuiz I heir bchool board  The annual general meeting  and election of officers for  Pender Harbour Board of  Trade took place Monday in  Garden Bay Clubhouse.

The telephone operator is a  very busy person at the time of  an alarm, sounding the,. siren  und at.the same time notifying  the firemen as to the location  of the fire.  As a number of the  firemen are away -' from  the village during the daylight  hours it has been decided to  increase the number of members to 20.

Canada's Ninth Series Savings Bond, yielding 3 1-4 percent and for 12 years, is offered  again through banks, investment dealers and the popular  payroll purchase plan used by  718,000 Canadians last year.  Organizer for the Howe  Sound area this campaign is  W. S. "Bill" McQuaid, one of  the dozen investment dealers  borrowed from their firms for  this job. The popular Mr. McQuaid is with !Pemberton Securities in Vancouver.  Regional director for B.C. is  George Sherwood, Thomas  Read and Co., well-known in  Howe Sound as organizer of  the Coast Division before getting the top post. Last year his  region topped Canada in percentage increase of sales  through payroll. |  The bond again is redeemable at any time and at face  value plus interest. Non transferable, it is sold only to individuals.  While Bank of Canada officials do not look for a record  like last year when 1,323,000  Canadians subscribed to $900  million, they do see a heavy  demand.  Increased incomes, the thrift  pattern Canadians have built  over th.3 eight previous series  plus the fact, two wartime Victory Loans were called in this  year,  will  insure  popularity.  Thrift, the safety and liquidity and the high rate of interest remain points in the bond's  favor.  W.  ,S.  (Bill)   McQuaid  Gales Blow  A heavy wind and rain on  Sunday caused a huge snag to  topple, across the Roberts Creek  to Gibsons Road, stopping y ail  traffic. The l?ig snag lay across  the road so that buses had to be  re-routed by way of the School  Road and Sechelt Highway. It  took several hours to get the  tree trunk sawn through and  moved off the highway.  Early Tuesday morning, just  before seven o'clock, lines were  down at Selma Park, cutting  out all power for the Peninsula.  Crews were on the job immediately and power was available before 9:30 a.m.  .Wednesday morning's gale  repeated the performance of  Tuesday, and cut off the power  about 7:35 a.m. along the Peninsula, Crews were out at once  looking for the break; dividing  the area into sections. It was  turned on again shortly after  12:30 noon.  $50 Reward  Offered  H. C.

While Hallowe'en is more than a week distant, now  anight be a good time to offer some comment on a traditional night which can be either simple fun or a night of  fiJis^gTeeable memories.  Not a great deal need be said about those individuals  who -choose to make the night one of clean fun. Everyone,  <sxeept a few cranks, can agree to this. But not all of those  Joining in Hallowe'en festivities are satisfied with what can  'be described as good clean fun. Even though the night  falls on a Sunday this year there will be those individuals  who prefer to allow their unpleasant ego to assert itself in a  disagreeable manner.  To them it is daring to push over, break. down or  'wreck mail boxes, remove 'privies from their base and gener-  stSy raise their own peculiar type of disagroeableness.  Making threats of dire consequences just makes their  ���"adventure" even more daring but it could be pointed out  , that tampering with mail boxes is a serious offence punish- j  aMe with more than a small fine. The law does not cover  iMtiFJes in a specific sense but offenders could face a magistrate vmder a common mischief charge and the ensuing result would be unpleasant.  One thing the youth of Sechelt Peninsula could mull  ��n?e_- in their individual minds between now and Hallowe'en  is whether a trip before a magistrate is really worth the  effort. It is an embarrasment that does not fall solely on the  ^ereith concerned. He more than likely has brothers and sis-  texs^ also a mother and father.  It is up to the youths of the Peninsula to show the  Mud of .stuff they are made of. If they choose to be rowdies  *feey must expect to reap the consequences. If they want to  8��-decent about Hallowe'en, it-would.be beneficial to every-  Bwdy, young and old.  ALONG SHORE  3By Barrie Zwicker  ��?���_ The Coast News  M. STRAW STACK BURN . . .

With the  se-fcent of the combine, straw-  s-ac-cs began to disappear, and  s&ecwr <of,course almost complete  ja&echanization -has taken place  *w_ tlae plains. If there are many  s&awstacks, or horses left now  ���ibey would be in . northerly  Scarfs of Saskatchewan. ,  where the strawstack was located.  ii. strawstack burn- usually  was conceived on a Thursday or  a Wednesday when some of the  Uig��* School students felt the  ���__ee<3 -for -such a frolic. By Fri-  <3ayafternoon most 0f the.plans  ���wcrald: be complete, including  the selection of a farm which  Wa good expendable straw-  alack j giving of directions on  Row-.to get,to the farm, and the  eSeeision on kow many would  be allowed in on the 'much anticipated fun.  Friday afternoon before sup-  pertim'e everyone would get his  lunch ready. It would likely, be  sandwiches, soft or chocolate  drink, and .weiners and buns.  Often the Weiners, buns and  ' soft drinks would be purchased  fey the class as a whole and  ���'���- stored at the farm home before  the event.  '   ������  -Around    seven    o'clock    the  ���   revellers would begin to gravi-  ''-���   tate to the farm.    Cars of var-  ��� foxis vintages would    generally  _ie well-packed and if the farm  were    fairly ,  close    to    town,  groups would cycle there' with \  a great deal of    laughter    and  5_��is���"-.  1__e student who was host  ^ioeild usually be on hand in  *be iarmyard to explain, to the  visitors how to get to the field  Once out on the    field    any  car would be empty before    it  twas properly stopped. The passengers would be racing for the  strawstack at top speed.      This  they would' clamber up, as fast  as possible. There, would usually be a group already    at    the  top who resisted    attempts    to  usurp    their    position.      Now,  climbing a strawstack takes    a  great deal of energy    for    the  progress made. There is a great  deal of slipping  involved.   But  when individuals at the top are  prepared to, with    the    merest  push, land you right at the bottom again, it. is well nigh    impossible to scale    a    stawstack.  However,    everyone    tried    to;  for about two hours, at    which  time they.had just enough energy left.to watch the lighting  of the strawstack and. get    the  weiners prepared for    roasting.  Previously a circular strip had  been plowed around the    stack  to prevent the fire from spreading through the stubble.  Then. the eats 'were passed  around and devoured with amazing rapidity. A .sing-song  afAer lunchtime was not uncom-1  mon. A strawstack burn did not  end until the chill began to  slip into the night.  When it did, the strawstack-  ers would go home, keeping an  eye on the harvest moon, just  Jake' that one I saw the other  night.  Books Donated  One of Canada's outstanding  collections of books on the life  of Mary Queen of Scots, has  been received by the University of British Columbia library. Dr. G. B. Salmond of Sur-  biton, England, has presented  the 200 volume gift as a memorial .to his  late wife.  Some of the books were published in ' the 16th century and'  include eye-witness accounts of  events during Mary's romantic  and tragic life. Recently published findings of modern historians are also included in  the   collection.  By L.S.J.  "BLACK      BREATH"  On the ferry a day or so ago,  two ferrymen Johns were eyeing the light Squamish that  was making itself felt a bit and  opining about what was ahead.  We talked about the article.: I  had written last winter which  coincided with a nasty set-to in  the main channel. I was.led to  recall the winter of '28-*_fe  when there was a prolonged  spell of frost.  We were at that time logging  on the north end of Bowen Island and skated every night on  Killarney Lake for a long time.  IP was severe all along the  coast and I remember the US  Navy supplying, I think, Taco-  ma and Seattle with electricity  by battleship for several weeks  due to the extreme freeze - up  in the hydro basins.  *    *    ���  The north wind or "Squamish" as it is known locally gets  to quite gale force at times,  and these ferrymen had run into the same barometric peculiarities that I had also experienced in the channel.  We had put in about ten  years or more along its shores  and it was always a source of  interest to watch the antics of  the glass in winter and I was  telling the ferrymen how the  Point Grey reading would be  around 30 while off Anvil Island it would be showing 28 or  a bit less with a living gale  blowing. This phenomenon is  quite elementary and is due to  the warm air rising off the  sea allowing cold air from the  interior plateaus to flow down  the various inlets that lead  closest north and south into  those  regions. ��  There are three notable ones  on the lower coast, Knights Island, Bute Inlet, and the Squamish Channel. Squamish Is the  kindest as it has shelter to run  to. Bute is quite bad with little shelter. Knight is reckoned  the worst of the three. Squamish is more in ti}e limelight as  there is a great deal of traffic  in ferries, scows and logtowing.  The summer reverses the  wind and when the plateaus are  hot we have a stiff westerly at  Watts Pt. made by the cool air  off the sea going inland while  it's flat calm off Gower Point.  Ferryman John mentioned  the blue fog that is born by  the wind when it is really cold  and I said that I had only seen  that on about three occasions in  my time here. It made a mirage  of the steamers and there was  only one that had the temerity  to be out in it, That was the  U.S.S. Capilano and one could  see a funnel smoking away in  mid-air with a sort of a low  scow coming along under it at  the same speed, the rest of the  boat totally obscured. This frozen spindrift coated everything  when it hit the exposed beaches and certainly .made some  winterscapes of  rare  beauty.      |  The Squamish wind ��� has its  vagaries. It can be boiling at  Hood Point, ,and not too bad at  Horseshoe Bay. This is when it  is' a little east of north. When it  is slightly west of north then  Horseshoe Bay has a rough  time.. I have seen it fairly calm  in the main channel and a nasty sea running on the beach at  Port" Mellon. This is quite rare  though. v    ���  At Douglas Bay in 1934 we  had 4 below, Vancouver had  some 20 degrees or so and this  difference is due to the wind I  feel sure. I also remember when  we were at McNab Creek  watching the Westholm or one  of. those type of coastal freighters slowly* being driven back  by the wind off Anvil Island  and finally giving up, tacked  over to our float and spent  about two hours knocking ice  off the deck with the steam  hose and axes and waiting over  until the wind abated.  There is always the doubt of  memory in this sort of reminiscence but I daresay there are  a few left at Gibsons who will  remember the odd occasions  when the blown spray off the  sea coated the wharf deck with  quite thick ice in places. The  biggest fish may yet be in' the  sea, the tide rises and the tide  falls governed by the wind.  Who can see the wind, who  knows how hard it can blow.

It is an item that should be on  record:  Gibsons United Church Hall  is frequently mentioned as the  place of meetings of all types  of organizations. This hall was  built in 1940 through the.efforts  of the late Rev. Frank Bushfield to be used as a commune  ity hall under direction of the  church.  At the opening service of the  Community Church in Port  Mellon on Sept. 26 it was men-,  tioned that the church in Port  Mellon was organized by Mr.  Bushfield in 1941.

The true story of "the  modern mountie is, however,  yet more exciting. The RCMP's  relentless war against crime Is  not a succession of gun-fights  and 70 m.p.h. car-chases; most  of their work is done quietly in  laboratories such as the one  above, showing two fingerprint experts in this Malak  photo.  A new series by the CBC, aptly titled "The Quiet Force,"  will bring listeners to the  Trans-Canada network an inr  sight into the RCMP of to-day,  where science, perseverance  and brainwork are their main-  weapons. The scripts for the  series were checked by the  RCMP for technical accuracy,  and their verdict was: Excellent!

He was a Past \  Grand    Master    of      Wimburn  Lodge No. 75  A.F.  and    A.M.,  Oxford,  N. S.  ' He found in this location a  resemblance to the scenes of  his boyhod in Nova Scotia. He  served ini the First Canadian  Contingent that left these  shores for service in South Africa and personally took part  in the capture f Cronje, the  Boer leader. He was wounded  at the battle of Pardeberg and I  invalided home, but never re-,  covered his health.  Surviving are four sons arid  two daughters, one in California.  Service was in the Anglican  church, Gibsons, conducted by  the Rev. H. U. Oswald, and ac-'  cording to the ancient rites of  the Masonic order by the members of the local lodge.  Historical  Books Bought  The University library hasi  purchased a 253 volume file of  "Chronicles and Memorials of  Great Britain and Ireland during the Middle Ages."  More commonly known as  the "Roll Series," this is the  collection of medieval chronicles and memorials published  under the direction of the British Master of Rolls between  1858 and 1911.  The series is considered one  of the most important sources  for the study of British history  of the Middle Ages.  His 50 year jewel testified t&  a life well spent though handicapped by sickness. Present  were his wife Florence Oxley-  his son-in-law, Cpl. V. J. Williams, RCAF, and Robert S.  Oxley, son by a previous marriage.

THE BANKS SERVING YOUR COMMUNITY  I  "I DON'T THINK WE HAVE  MANY DOCTRINAIRE SOCIALISTS IN THE RANKS OF  CANADIAN    WORKINGMEN."  That Statement by Dr. Eugene For-  eey, Director of Research for the  Canadian Congress of Labor, is note-  .worthy for two reasons.  In the first place, Dr.. Forney was  one of the drafters of the Regina  Manifesto, original policy statement  of the C.C.F. Socialist movement in  Canada.  Secondly, the Canadian Congress of  Labor officially supports the C.C.F.  political party.  Dr. Forsey was participating in a  ipanel discussion of the subject "The  Future Relationship of Management  and Labor" at the annual meeting  of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Halifax, October 6, 1954.  He forecast that if working men felt  that they obtained their fair share  of the fruits of industry, they would  not be greatly interested in changing the form of ownership of industry.  m  m  m  BRITISH COLUMBIA FEDERATION OF TRADE AND INDUSTRY Coast  News  Oct. 21,     1954.

At Gibsons, the ceremony  will be on Monday evening,  Oct. 25; at Sechelt, Thursday,  Oct. 26; and at Pender Harbour on Wednesday, Oct. 27.  Each event will begin at 7:30  p.m. In Gibsons and Sechelt, j taining  they will l>e held in the Legion  Halls. Pender Harbour is asked  to watch for notices regarding  the place.  Each evening will she concluded with a free showing of  films for the benefit of. all, on  the work of the Ground Observer Corps, and other RCAF  films.  In this area, the Ground Observer Corps has been organized for over two years, with  the late Ken Whitaker is the  first Regional Supervisor. The  force of Observers has grown,  and much enthusiasm has  been demonstrated by the varv  ious members in their work.  They act as a warning and  notification screen, in aid to  Radar, in the defence of Canada in time of war. In peacetime, by their constant reporting of the flight of planes, they  are a very valuable aid in tracing lost planes, locating planes  forced to land, and in assisting  in searches for  downed  draft.  Their reports from the areas  all over Canada are received  at central 'Filter Stations' and  the flights of planes can be  plotted there. When planes are  off their course or not adhering  to filed flight plans the reports  of the Ground Obervers can  be of immense value to search  parties in case of trouble. Previously air-sea rescue work has  had to be. carried on haphazardly with consequent loss of  time and use of many more  planes than necessary. The Observers help to eliminate much  loss in time and expense in the  search.  Observers are also trained in  first aid measures and in search  and rescue work.  The organization from Pender Harbour to Port Mellon is  constantly on ��� the alert and  hopes to continue' to grow in  strength and efficiency.  The presentation ceremonies  to be held next week in each  area should be interesting and  informative  as  well  as    enter-  7&a6V��,  Planning some   re-decoration  ound-up  By Lois Buchanan  A foursome recently making  a hunting trip to the Cariboo  were Mr. and Mrs. George Hunter and Mr. and Mrs. George  Hill.

It need not have happened."  - Civil defence has a basic or_;  ganization in the Gibsons area  and training of key men and  women is now underway.

LETTER  TO EDITOR  Editor:  The school meeting notices  are posted, and while it is not  compulsory it might be a good  thing if we can get a good at-  endance and find out what has  been done, and help the Board  gaze into the Socred crystal  ball which Mr. Ray Williston,  the new minister, has placed at  their disposal.  I think we shall require a  new school before long and  this will cost money, and the  new methods of financing by  the Socred pundits might stand  some investigation.  There is also a vast divergence of opinion as to whether  the schools' should be a haven  of refuge for clods and whether  the staff in their wisdom should  be allowed to give these nondescripts the old heave-ho and  thus lessen costs.  Also it would appear from  statistics that 90 percent of the  students who have been wasting time and taxpeyers' money  learning French have no knowledge of it vocally on leaving  school. This matter surely  bears . looking into.  Finally attendance at your  annual school meeting may  save some space in The Coast  News later on where there  has been in the past some muddled thinking expressed in its  correspondence  columns.
