Fitness would help  The Royal Canadian Legion's move into the sports arena for  young people is a step in the right direction. It recalls to mind Prince  Philip's remark which in effect maintained we were a soft people.  There will be those bright people who will argue we are the salt  of the earth, with none others like us and we have displayed the spirit of the Stoics, Trojans and Spartans. On paper possibly we have but  in actual fact analysis will boil things down to our being a nation of  softies.  The young have been pampered and they have taken advantage  of the fact that pampering was the spirit of the times) therefore all  they could get, they would take.  In being indulgently kind a considerable amount of cruelty has  resulted and when some of the present day youngsters face the hard  knocks the world will provide, they will then have to make a decision  which should have been made many years previously.  Competition is still a'vital force and the will to win remains as  valuable an asset as it has been,ever since time began.  If lessons of obedience can be instilled into the young mind, a  great deal would be accomplished because.,. from . obedience many  other things can be-achieved'witlii greater ease.  '   '"'  Royal Canadian Legion members are showing the way in their  approach to two problems, that of youth generally and secondly of  removing some of the softness for which we are truly known.  Youngsters should take stock of the fact that regardless of whether they win at sports or mental activity they are building themselves for greater things to come.  Activity of this type will be of more value to the nation than going the rounds with ban-the-bomb petitions. Survival in a hot or cold  war will go to the fittest. Remaining soft and doing little more than  signing petitions is a good way to commit national suicide.  So to all members of all organizations making youth conscious  of its real strength, keep up the good work. Those men who displayed  their mettle on'battlefields of the world know what "being able to  take it" means. ���'    . r  Gibsons July 1 queen  Should the firemen sponsor a July 1 Queen or should they drop  tout this year?  The Volunteer Firemen's association has sponsored a queen for  the last two years and each year its candidate has won. This year  the Firemen have decided to drop out to give other candidates a  chance. Pressure may be exerted on them to return to the contest.  Competitions for the selection of a queen for this or that fete usually run into snags during their years of existence. In the case of  Gibsons' July 1 event it has been suggested that the firemen, like  the policeman selling tickets to the police ball, have the buyer over a  barrel. He or she cannot very well refuse to buy a ticket for their"  candidate.  This should not be uppermost in the minds of the public. It is still  the right of the individual to say which candidate he or she desires  their ballot to represent. This makes the popularity idea paramount  and the purchaser of a ballot would know he or she has made the  choice.  If the organizations supporting the July 1 event will take a good  look at the future of the contest they will see that a ballot obtained  through suggested coercion will help kill the queen contest very  -quickly.  How about having a wide open competition this year with no  pre-marked ballots or suggestions as to who one should support? Let  the voter decide.  Spare that tree!  This is Forest Conservation Week.  In a country like Canada, and particularly in a province like  British Columbia which depends so largely on the forests for its present and future security every week should be Forest Conservation  Week.  Originated in B.C. 11 years ago by the Canadian Forestry Association of British Columbia, Forest Conservation Week is now a national institution aimed at focusing the attention of the individual  citizen on the significance of the forests in "our national economy  and arousing a sense of personal responsibility for their protection  against the ravages of fire which annually devastates some two million acres of forest land between the Atlantic and the Pacific.  Every year this resource is menaced by fire. Last year 4,113  fires burned over 285,820 acres of B.C.'s forest land, destroying more  than 122,000,000 cubic feet of merchantable timber with a potential  lumber value of $44,000,000 and depriving the province of $2,500,000 in  potential stumpage revenue. Fighting these fires cost us approximately $5,500,000 in 1960. Simple precautions can help stem this serious  loss.

Till good and evil each shall go its way;  Till hate and love alike desert the field, -  These shall endure, and at the close of day,  When cowardice and valor show their yield,  The most deserving knight of all, I say,  Shall wear the golden star upon his shield.  volved   in : reaching   them";-Is  necessarily   out   of   proportion  ; to  their   numbers.

It took us two  days to cross the Caribbean  Sea and pass through the Windward Channnel between Jamaica amd Haiti, both islands  being just visible. There was  a. brisk head wind and t/he air  ���temperature was a little over  80 degrees, and the sea temperature was always a little  higher.; ���  After we got past Jamaica  we had our one and only; tropical rain storm, ^which started  with a normal rain, increased  to a deluge such as we seldom  experience, then' tailed foff.

There was one familiar note.  Over this complicated gear  there hangs just the' same notice as you have over Coast  News machines ��� "THJ.NKY  We sighted Bishop's Rock  Lighthouse on the end of the  Scilly Isles, the first ���,. beacon  for England, on Saturday  night and. next, morning passed  tihe Normandy Beaches, but  too far out to /get any detail,  then picked up the pilot off  Le Harve and entered the harbor on Sunday afternoon.  JjC ��*JC JfC  This    takes    place    in    two  stages,    first,   the   ship  passes  'through the arms of the breakwater, then through gates into  one or other of the numerous  "basins."  Sunday afternoon  is  'the time for "promenade" and  our    arrival   was  watched   at  ithe various lockgatesby quits  a  large  number of people  in  tiheir   Sunday   best   and   when  we docked, more came: in cars  to look  at the ship. She  was  well worth a look,'for she.was  ���freshly  painted  from  stem  to  stern and  everything spotless.  The last time I was through  Harve was when I was on the  way   from  the station  to  the  Southampton    dock   in   1919,  and the   only familiar objects  were the bridges over the lock  gates. In the second .war  the  British blew the waterfront of  the city to pieces, so much so  that   when  the time  came  to  rebuild,    the    city cleared an  area of about a mile in length  along the docks by about half-  a-mile in width to the foot of  the bluff, and on it laid out a  system   of   boulevards,  streets  and parks, of very modern design.   The   general   picture  is  harmonious.  * . *  Surrounding the business  section are many islands of  five, to seven storey walk-up  apartments, each having a sit-  out balcony,' and the ground  floors; are for.: the/^most part  given over ytof sftops. These  blocks are . set at angles, so  there are small green parks  here arid there, but home life  must be rather a honeycomb  existence.  There are no large shops,  not even branch stores, and no  supermarkets. The display of  dresses, furniture and household goods is attractive but  orices comoared with ours are  high. The French have altered  their currency, and now use  ''New Francs" wortfh about .20  rents Canadian and" 100 times  the old franc.  We lay three days in Harve,  unloading   lemons   and   grape  fruit  ar.d on the afternoon of     We couldn't find one of those  the day we sailed my wife and  I walked along the dock in the  direction away from the town  and wandered, into a part  across the tracks which had  not been bombed. There we  found the twisting streets of  small old houses and shops and  the cafes and estaminets of the  France we know; with the women doing their shopping and  gossiping;.;; ./.://   ' * ���'���'.' .' '   X'. ''���  It started y to rain, so !we  made .for^'6ur':^ip,'.:;'w_tose;'-;fun-'  nel we could ^ee in. the distance, but we gotylost'inf the  maze of docks. We enquired i at  a police post, but the two gendarmes there had noYEJnglish  ard we had little French, so  they turned, us over, to another  gendarme . who was passing,  who also had no-English.yAs  we walked with him language  troubles seemed - to dissolve  and when foe found that we .  Canadians, things thawed visibly, and he escorted ' us ) round  warehouses to a: very small  ferry, which, took ius across a  basin to._: within;'.a hundred  yards of "our ship.  *._>   . ���-  The people of Harve are not  noticeable for their cordiality.  They are quite tall and fair  for the most part, reserved and  intent\ on: their own affairs.  The French motor ears are  numerous, small and lightly  .built, but the main traffic is  by bicycle, many of which  have a motor attachment to tha  front wheel. .  There were numerous bakeries and their wares were  mouth-watering. Most of the  bread was In thin sticks about  a yard long and it is the accepted thing to pack home an  armful - of "these; y unwrapped.  places where one could have  coffee and cakes, either inside  or out, so we bought a box of  patisseries and a couple of  1 bread sticks for consumption  on the ship. Both were very  good but the bread wasn't any  better than what we can,: get  ZaX home. :.���.'.��� ��:-"- ."4'-  It took us\ a full day' to sail  '- from ' Le: Harve  to   Liverpool,.  arriving  at  dusk.   Next  rnorn-  Hng there was a short customs  /and     immigration     inspection  Sand we were off the ship short-  Yly after breakfast. Our destination read London, but the ship  ..had a  lot of  cargo for/Liver-  '������tpool,   so   what   the   corripanny  did was to  send us first-clasis .  yon a non-stop train to London,  .  *with a  courier.

Your   courier   met  us. He   had  dseen  the   other, passengers off  jto their homes and had wondered where we had got to. On  ���learning our trouble, he forth-  3with did some telephoning and  got  us  accommodation, at  this  JKenilworljh. Hotel, which turned out ot be just what we wanted.
