Array PROVi^GJAUj  U  SERVING THE GROWING SECHELT SUNSHINE COAST^PENINSULA FROM SQUAMISH TO PENDER HARBOUR.  Provincial  Libr��  Viptoria,  B,   C.  Published in Gibsons, B.C.  December 2. 195.4.  Volume 8. Number 48.  BY  STAN  BOWDLER  People of the Pender Harbour area were shocked Saturday as the bodies of two well-  known residents were recovered from Garden Bay Lake less  than a. mile above the harbour.  The two men, C. R. (Chuck)  Nickerson and Loy Haase had  worked, for some time in the  Harbour's logging operations.  Chuck Nickerson ;was 37, and  Loy Haase was 45 years old..  The finding of the bodies  Saturday was the result of several days search by RCMP officer Nels Cummings and fellow workers    of    the    missing  men. The two~~men left Garden  Bay over a week ago in an old  model Dodge sedan, to do some  repair work on logging equip  ment.   .'���','..-  When they failed to return  by Tuesday, a search was started. The heavy rains and gales  of the past week... hampered  searchers until Saturday's clear  weather enabled a complete  check of the road bordering on.  Garden Bay. On Friday, at  dusk, RCMP officer Cummings'  discovered very slight indications of the, brush along the  roadside being disturbed for a  distance of about 20 feet at a  point where the road runs parallel to' the lake and here.the.  car was located in about 20  feet of water and about ID -feet  from, shore.  Darkness prevented further  investigation, but when the car  was hoisted from the lake the  following morning, the body  of Nickerson was found inside.  Dragging operations to find  the second body, were then  carried on by Bill Hodson, Glen  Seeney, Ossie Nicholson .and  Jim Wray with Nels Cummings  supervising. The men, in two  dinghies, tried underwater,  lights without success because  of the oil slick and muddy  condition of the lake. Dragging  operations with grappling irons  were then tried but the hundreds of snags in the lake made  method    seemingly    hope-  this  less. '  ^Just; before it was decided to  abandon  operations until darkness when lights might be more  ^effective, with the possibility of  having to call in a frogman if  |;the! search    continued    another  d^y, .Nels Cummings asked for  we more try    and    this    time  the grappling irons brought up  tlie body of Haase.  iy/Bpth the victims  of the tra-  .ge9y;j'..Ieft..fami^es,^Haas'e a wife  ,an^,four children, Nickerson a  W$e)and three children.

This small association, without funds, by means of which  to' make, its opinions known,  has been persistent iri its disapproval of the methods of  granting forest management licenses, in the province.

Mrs. Hammon heard " tne  child cry out, and located him:  She took him to the office, to  Mrs. Prewar, who acted at  once.  Anne and Jimmy Tyson took  him to Dr. Inglis, who found  on fluoroscope examination that  the nickel was lodged in Jimmy's windpipe. Even while they  were looking, the coin turned,  blocking off the breathing.  Dr. Inglis reached for the  telephone, t0 have the ferry  wait, to take the child to hospital, when suddenly a sharp  cough  brought  up  the  nickel.  Jimmy Tyson drove the little patient Jiome to his parents,  where he is recovering on a  mild ice cream diet..

' Acting on a suggestion from  the Ratepayers association, the  commissioners of Gibsons decided to advise the Fire Department to make all purchases for equipment through the  Village accounts, by regular  purchase orders, and to turn  over-to the Village treasury any  donations received from the  public, from which payments  of Fire Department purchases  might be made.

There are  those individuals* who want to take what they consider the  "bunkum" out of Christmar-. They are in league with those  "bright" minds who see sadistic trends arising from nursery  rhymes and so on. '  Perhaps it is a waste of time to point out to those  people that a long, Ions while after they are dead and gone  those nursery rhymes and-Christmas, as represented to the  young by Santa Claus, will be'just as flourishing as over. If  Santa and the nursery rhymes were to disappear, it would  be because the younger, generation wanted it that way and  not because some "bright" mind willed it.  To tackle this festive season problem from another  angle let's get those "bright" minds to devise some alcoholic  drink that would allow the New Year batch of drunks to  see straight and get home with a minimum of trouble --and  drive their car while so doing. That would be something  worthwhile.       ���;':-������'������ /*--.���  ';��� ��� Perhaps we .could also get these /'bright", minds, to  stir up the populace,Lo.:;pay more attention' to. the religious  aspects., of. the festive season rather' than to the more ^lit-  terin��" side.

It was first used as a  residence. In 1924 it was purchased by Mr. Cooper who was.  a member of the original board  of village commissioners. He  sold it in 1946 to the present  owner, Barney Thorburn.  Don Dupray was the originator of the. second-hand idea,  and his brother Morey later  took over the store. Morey often gave away articles on the  "if you can guess what it is,  you  can have it" basis.  And the present owner is  just as bad. For instance, the  store has been a. trifle chilly  lately. That's because Chuck  sold the oil heater which was  keeping the place warm.  *      *'     *  Chuck wouldn't do that if  he were located on the Prairies,  in cold winter, although the opportunity would be greater.  According to ca DBS news sheet  the Prairies spend more than  any other region on secondhand goo'ds. That was 32.7 percent cf the $32 million Canadian total in 1951. B.C. spent  18.2 percent of the total.  Chuck gets his stock from  trade-ins, local purchases, and  city auction sales. He says that  generally an article is sold for  half price if it is second-hand,  nc matter now good the condition. Ike of Ike's Exchange  .-.aid the same. So there are  some good buys to be had *n a  fccor.d hand  store.  And remember, that things  secend-hand are 'not necessarily  ���econd-rate, although it may  be second  nature to  think so.

Coupled with the mooring is  the desire of most of the owners to have an improvement in  the appearance of the beach,  and improvement in swimming  facilities.  First, each property owner  may build his own private jetty, which will result in a lot of  little structures, most of which  will be high and dry' at low  tide, and which will resemble  a row of snag teeth jutting out  from the shore. This will be  anything but beautiful, and  useful only part of the time,  according to Mrs. Cameron,  the. secretary of the Beach Property      Owners'      Association.  proved.  The second choice is that the  Beach Property Owners should  co-operate and build one wharf,  for   their  use  and for  the  use  of the  community   of  Gibsons.  In  this way,  one  jetty    would  jut out into    the    Bay,    along  which small boat owners  could  have  their  own  berths,  and  if  considered advisable, a    locker  house could be    built    on    the  wharf,  in  which   boat    owners  might house small    equipment.  If this is done, the Association  partment of Public Works (provincial)   that  they   will   dredge  alongside the wharf,    so    that  there   will.be   constant     access  to it, rather than only  at high  tide.    With   on��    jetty,    which  would   be built    at    the    road  end   nearest  to   Chris     Jorgen-  son's  property,  it will then  be  possible for the adjacent property owners to go ahead with  plans to make the beach attractive in appearance as well as  for swimming. It is proposed  that while any Gibsons boat  owner would, be free to use the  wharf, a space would always  be reserved for possible visiting small boats.  The third" choice is that of a  department of public works  has the assurance of the De-  wharf, to be built by and maintained by the Government.  Such building would, of course,  be at the pleasure of the government, and the regulations  regarding its use would be  those of the Department. No  extra structures would be allowed to be built on it, and no  reservation of space for individual owners. Should they be  absent from    the    wharf,    any  ether boatsman might moor in  the space left.  The Beach Property    Owners  Association, says Mrs. Cameron  would be pleased to have the  opinions of other Gibsons beat  owners, before proceeding with  any plans.  Trees for Sale  Boy Scouts and Cubs of Sechelt and Wilson Creek will be  calling on all the homes and  business places in their areas,  to take orders for Christmas  trees. They will handle orders  for small trees for shop-window  and interior decorations, or for  trees suitable for homes, or  bigger trees for outdoor lighting.  Completed  Installation of an additional  switchboard position in the Sechelt Exchange has been completed, according to Eric Mallett, B.C. Telephone Company  district commercial manager at  North Vancouver.  These additional facilities  will help provide better telephone service to the rapidly  expanding Sechelt Peninsula  and mark a major step in the  compny's development program  in the former federal government exchanges which were  acquired April 1.

REMEMBER YOUR KEYS  " A key left in a parked car  is a temptation to car thieves,"  warns Harry Duker, chairman  of the British Columbia Automobile Association traffic and  safety committee. "Don't ever  leave the key in the car. Often  a motorist goes into a store  thinking he will be there only  a minute or two. When . he  comes back to the place where  he had parked his car, it is  gone. Help yourself and the police by taking the keys out of  your car. Don't make things  easy for car thieves."  Reading Taste  Shows Change  In 1941 the largest proportion of the books borrowed  from public libraries in all but  two of 41 cities of 10,000 population and over were adult  fiction, juvenile books leading  in Vancouver and adult non -  fiction in Calgary.  In the next ten years the fiction proportion fell in all but  two cities (Ottawa and Cal-;  gary),-  Fiction accounted for over  67 perecnt of the books, borrowed in Moose Jaw^ but only 27.  percent of the total in Toronto.

You see it in the bold distinction of that gleaming Wide-Screen Grille. You see it in the rakish  sweep of the fe&r-end; contours. You see it in  the whole forei-arid-aft newness of fleet-lined  grace that marks Buick the beauty thrill of 1955.  New horsepower*��� up to 236  You learn more when you get the power story.

And it's new, more responsive, fair abler power  you can literally feel as you go.  But even bigger Buick news for l#lo is some-  ��� - ���   *m.  thing more than, style and power. It's what the  "variable pitch propeller" now- had done for  Dynaflow Drive.*  Up goes performance���and gas mileage too  When you find it necessary to push the pedal  to the floor board, you do more than call on the  greatest high-compression V8 power in Buick  history.

But they're engineered to swivel  or change their "pitch" just like plane propellers  ���and with the same result: one pitch for getaway, another pitch for gas-saving fuel efficiency.  And what you get in the way of instantaneous  safety-surge with absolute smoothness, you can only  believe when you feel it.  This you have to try  Of course, we want you to come and see the  trend-setting new Buicks���look into the betterments in gasoline mileage that add new thrift  to these spectacular cars.

Many  eld orchards have different varieties and as some are inferior,  production is* affected. Future  standards are bound to become  more rigid, therefore selection  md propagation, of the right  varieties are essential.  In the station propagation  experiment seven kinds of cuttings were taken, from each of  three selections of English holly, Ilex Aquifolium, in Novem-  j ber-December 1953. Included  ��� was one male selection since  approximately three percent of  . plants in any holly orchard  must be male to provide effective pollination. The following  cuttings were made with current season's wood: 6-inch cuttings with 2 terminal leaves, 6-  inch, cuttings, wfth-ifour terminal  leaves, single leaf heel cuttings,  single leaf mallet cutting. The  seventh type was a 6-inch cut-  ling with 2-year plus current  wood with two terminal leaves  remaining; Sixty cuttings of  each treatment with 20 from  each selection were taken. Before inserting the! cuttings - in  pure sand in a propagating  frame in a 63 degree F. greenhouse, the bases, of the stems  were placed in a solution of  indolebutyric acid, 50 pvp.m.  for 24 hours.
