Teacher off  to Honolulu  Miss Shirley Linton, primary  teacher for the last three years  of Canyon Heights School, North  Vancouver, and previously at  Gibsons Elementary School" will  be Hawaii-bound at. the close of  the University of-British Columbia Summer School, having accepted a teaching contract at the  wellknown Punahou School, Hon-  well-knovvn Ponahou School,  Honolulu.  Miss Linton, a graduate of  North Vancouver High School, is  also hoping to do some extra-curricular work 'at the University  of Hawaii, making a special  study of Hawaiian culture and  background, as well as enriching ' her teaching  experience.  Punahou School offers excellent opportunities for enthusiastic teachers as classes never  number more than 25 pupils.  Mentioned in James Michen-  er's book "Hawaii," the history  of the school goes back to its  founding in 1841. Since then with  its present enrollment of nearly  3,000 pupils and a teaching staff  of 200, Punahou has grown tc*  be the largest non-parochial  school in  America. ���. ��������� I .-. f;iVC"|.i  2      Coast News, July 20, 1961.

One can suppose those people who voted in favor of forming a  hospital improvement district for the building of a new hospital at  Sechelt are wondering what sort of distraction some Pender Harbour  people are setting up preceding the final issue, that of voting, on a  money bylaw for a new hospital.  One can also suppose the Sechelt Indian band, which has donated  generously and without cost, sufficient land for the hospital, is  scratching its collective head wondering what all the fuss is about.  One must consider the fact the government department involved  has before it the overwhelming vote in favor of the hospital idea.  This means the department is bound to consider the desire of the  majority. The government is sold on the idea the area cannot support two hospitals. If Pender Harbour hospital was retained, could  the populace in that area stand the heavy assessment which would  be necessary to finance it? The assessment area is not the wealthiest on the coast.  The government also knows that most of the patients in the Pender Harbour institution come from points nearer Sechelt than Garden Bay.where the hospital is located. On this basis it is reasonable  to assume the area from Egmont to Port Mellon cannot afford two  hospitals.  The average person, this includes Pender Harbour area people as  veil, knows the situation if not faced now would have to be faced in  wo or three years with a population increase taking place year by  rear and an increase in hospital use with it.  One can regard government investigations into the situation as  being impartial. Department officials have before them facts and  figures from their own as'well as other sources and if these figures  coincide it will take quite an argument to bring about a change. So  far, nothing presented by those opposed to the proposed hospital appears to have had any dampening, effect on anything done so far towards obtaining a new hospital.  Happy and efficient  The Health League of Canada has devoted its current issue of  Health Magazine to the subject of Physical Fitness. ,If health and  physical fitness are neglected we cannot achieve that state of men-  tan, social and physical health which will make us good, happy and  efficient citizens.  Physical fitness and mental health are important assets no less  in peace than in war, Prime Minister Diefenbaker writes in this issue of the magazine.  Amateur athletics make an important contribution to the good  health of the youth of Canada and furthermore the achievement of  success internationally in amateur athletics makes a profound impact  on the peoples of the uncommitted world. With both purposes in mind  the federal government will introduce a measure to encourage the  expansion of amateur athletics, the prime minister added.  QUOTABLE    QUOTES  If you're ashamed of your gas mileage, do as others do ��� fib  about it.  Reckon meteorologists give feminine names to hurricanes because they're spinsters?

(Article 11)  By ERIC THOMSON  Five miles inland on our homeward journey from Land's End  we got out of the wind and cold  and had the good fortune to land  back in Camborne for tea, which  was just as good as lunch.,'The  good food, the butter and cream,  and the service of the West  Country are things to be remembered.  We took a different route home  passing through Penzance, a; curious town facing the .Channel,  and beyond which is: said to lie  the lost land of Lyonesse, a town  with what we then thoughtkyere  tortuous, yarrow streets. -fThere  were no pirates on hand but f one  of the pubs bore that name.  Later, our driver got a bitf lost,  and we landed upon the nioors .  among    the   pits   from ���.' which  comes the  china  clay which is  shipped. all over  the  worldYfor  the manufacture of  fine   china.  These   pits   are  on   the   top   of  ridges and are acres in extent.  The  raw material  is  a  decomposed granite, which is blasted,  then lifted by conveyor belt.The  sand is washed  from  the  clay,  which is stored in pits, and^the  refuse sand is piled in cones that  look  like  small  mountains   and  visible  for miles.  *    *     *  Our driver found his road and  took us back to Plymouth by way  of  Saltash  Ferry.   This  crosses  the Tamar Estuary near Devon-  port and hauls itself across iand  back   by   two   big    underwater  chains.   The   appointments   and  appurtenances    of   this   archaic  float make our Sniokwa look like  a  shipping  millionaire's   dream,  but its days are numbered,  for  there is a new suspension road-  bridge just about completed almost  at the ferry crossing.  We took a city bus to havej a  closeup view of this bridge and  right at the foot of it we found  a small road to the beach. On a  marker there was a notice that  this was "Normandy Way No.  27" so named by the U.S. forces  who had come down it to embark there for the invasion in  1944.  We  saw   at  far-distant points  on that peaceful coast other similar markers, at one little place,  Salcombe,   it  said   that   66 '-> U:S.  shiploads  had  come down, that  road  for  the   invasion, . and tit-  made one realize of what a ta^  mendous undertaking all this 1$|^|'",  been a small part.  *    *    *  We took a chance on a bus that  was filling up and had an afternoon's trip through a rich and  lovely part of Devon east of  Plymouth and'spent an hour or  so at a tiny place called Inner  and Outer Hope, a fishing village of a few very old houses  with a smuggling background,  one store, a post office, a pub,  a wide beach of red sand crossed  by a small stream, everything  exactly one had pictured such a  place to be. It was a warm day  by our standards, and it was  the only time we have had a  meal in the open.  From   there we  went   to  Salcombe,   down   paved   roads   so  narrow that the bus was a tight  fit,  and how  the driver manag-,  ed to squeeze past not only cars  but   also   other   buses   without  touching   them,   was  a   marvel.  We  had   thought  that   Penzance^  was  hilly but it   wasn't in  the*"'  same class as Salcombe for narrow and almost vertical streets,  which  bristled   with  notices   as  . to the fate of any motor vehicle  which  presumed to  enter.  This  ���was the place where the 66 shiploads    of   Americans   had   embarked. It is   some distance up  an inlet from the open sea, and  is the mooring place for a large  number of sail and motor boats.  On the little  pier head  there  is  a  week by. week batting-list  of the non-commercial fishing results,  which qualify for a large  variety of cups and shields, and-  the general impression I got was  that the fishing for various curiously   named   fish   wasn't   any  better than off the Sechelt wharf-  e::cept that catching conger eels  seemed   to    be   good,    because  somebody  had recently  brought  in 43 pounds of them but hadn't .  qualified for anything.  *    *    *  We managed to   get to Buck-  land Abbey next day by ordinary bus. This is a very old abbey  ���> 'dating from 1132, about nine  miles in back of Plymouth. Hen- ...  ry VIII evicted the monks and  sold the place to a Richard Gren-  ville. Later the famous Sir Richard Grenville of the "Revenge"  acquired it and had it for 40  years, when it was sold to Sir  Francis Drake.  It lies in a valley, surrounded   .  by lawns and trees, and has been  perfectly restored by the present  owners, the National Trust. The  Grenvilles   and Drake  exercised  considerable  ingenuity   in   con  verting  this  abbey into  a   comfortable   three   storey   dwelling,  and there are on view a surprisingly large number of their possessions,   notably  Sir   Richard's  sword,  Drake's  drum which accompanied him around the work!  by no mortal hands when danger  threatens England, and the ban-  and which is  said to be  beaten  ners   flown   from   the    "Golden  .Hind"  on  her   triumphal  return  to Plymouth.  g��        .t.        .r.  *f�� 'i* -V  Nearby is a tithe-barn used by  the monks in which to store their  quota of the local crops. It is  about the size of a small prairie  elevator and now contains specimens of early English wagons,  coaches, and a post-chaise, this  last being a two-wheeled affair,  . and of particular interest by reason of the law that all other' traffic had "to pull in to ,the left to  allow it to pass, which is one of  the reasons given for the "Keep  to the left" rule of the road here.  The monks were granted permission to fortify this "abbey and,  barn during "the war" but that  was the 100 Years' War, which  is still a matter of- record in  this old, old land.

We got down to,, the coast at  a place called Preston, an or:  dinary coast town, then went  through Paignton, .where the  streets and houses were more  attractive, and that brought us  to Torquay. This large' and luxurious town lies round-a wide  bay with red sands in front and  steep bluffs at the back.  Along the sea front are gardens with palm trees, and a profusion of flowers, esplanades  and hotels and winding, tree-  embowered roads lead up and  around the bluffs and on these  roads are private homes, apartments /and more hotels, with  plenty of elbow room between  them. Many of the homes , had  originally.. belonged   to   retired  Army and Indian civil service  people who favored Torquay not  only' for its natural 'beauty, but  also for the reason ��� that it was  the one place in England .where  they could keep warm..  Quite a few; of these, gracious  homes have now been flatted  into apartments, and ,it was one  such we visited. It stood high up  on the hillside and' looked out  over the whole of Torquay, and  beyond that far to the westward  down the Channel, and the appointments of the place were as  beautiful, as the view.  Our hosts had a car and drove  us around the.hillside, then we  had lunch down at the sea front,  and in the afternoon a drive  along the coast and came home  with a feeling that these- lucky  people had all that and heaven  too.

How any  Pender Habourite is willing to  see our hospital closed is beyond  my understanding.  , Regarding the "vote" Mrs. Lee  speaks of, to my knowledge .there  x was no such vote. There were  public meetings to discuss the  possibility of keeping our hospital open in the event a new one  is built and these meetings were  well advertised so that anyone  wishing to attend could have  done  so.  Now for item 1, I quote "The  accessibility by water is no longer a factor." What of the Jervis  Inlet and Nelson Island; people?  Do they no longer count?  No. 2: The distance from wharf  to hospital is not that great and  do they no longer have stretchers? They will certainly need  them if sick or injured people  have to be taken out of planes  to put in an ambulance to take  to hospital. I have seen hearse  ^parked at entrance to hospital.

Editor: The Sun's Mamie Moloney, in scolding the Coast News-  editor, has left the keep fit movement a trifle embarrassed. The  editor has favored fitness to no  nuclear weapon's petitioning by  high school youngsters.  This is an unfortunate comparison. Loyalty to the disarmament cause may subtly sour us  on fitness, if we are emotional  and uncritical. It is unfortunate  at a time when an effort is being "made to create a vitalkres-  ponsible and self-respecting citizenry through, the medium of  physical fitness. This does not  mean sports councils. It means  the   whole   population   and   the  Coast News,  July 20,  1961.       3  - whole person. And it does not  mean the exploitation of fitness  for war.  A calm and rational concern'  for peace is characteristic of the  integrated person. The frenzied  behaviour of one who is ignorant  of fundamental causes is motivation by fear, demanding fallout  shelters and armaments, sadly  evidenced by too many today. It  is often observed that we parallel the disintegrating Romans,  to whom the Olympics, as a religious festival (religion meaning  to bind) degenerated into a preoccupation with spectatorism.  Survival to the modern masses  it seems, means nothing except  at the material level. But spiritual survival does not mean sitting back. Sitting back is not  being spiritual; it is being lazy,  so lef's be self-disciplined citizens behaving in an inspired, inspiring and articulate manner.  Near-sighted political expediency  and governments notoriously  slow to act are not reasons for  doing otherwise.

Gokichi Oyama, Shogo Matsu-  oka and Junro Umemura, all  employed with the Ube Industries Co., were responsible for  the new anti-carbon monoxide  process which has been used  successfully in the cities of Tokyo  Osaka^and Nagoya.  "They found that to separate  carbon monoxide in city gas into  carbon dioxide and water, iron  oxide is used as the catalyzer.  They also found that over a period of time isolated carbon sticks  to the catalyzer, reducing its efficiency.

Although this is the  first and only-record of-the disease in North America it is possible that the disease may  spread, or may have already  spread, to other areas where yellow pine is a tree species of commercial importance. It has yet  to be determined, moreover, if  yellow pine is the only native  coniferous tree species susceptible to this disease; there is a  possibility that lodgepole pine  will also be attacked. ^ \  Pine twist rust is known to "alternate between certain hard  pines (2 or 3 needle pines) and  certain species of European poplar; it cannot survive indefinitely in,the absence of poplar. European white poplar, Populus  alba, is the suspected carrier of  the disease in B.C.; although this  tree is not native to North America it is believed to be widely  planted as an ornamental. One  of the initial steps in the program to gain essential informak  ^ion on pine twist rust is to determine the distribution ofywhite  poplar in B.C. The British Columbia Forest.

This tree can be  identified by the characteristic  white cottony bloom on the under surface of the leaves and  on small twigs and branches.  The leaf bears some resemblance  to a small maple leaf but maple  lacks the white coloration. European white poplar is a wide  spreading crown and may reach  a height of 100 feet or more. A  small twig supporting three or  four leaves should be removed  from white poplar. This material should be pressed between  the pages of a book for several  days, or until reasonably dry,  removed and placed between  two pieces of heavy paper to  avoid excessive damage in shipment, and then placed in an envelope and submitted to the forest disease laboratory.  (2) To submit samples of arty  foliage or stem rust oh: yellow  pine (3 needle pine) or lodgepole  pine (2 needle pine), the rust will  appear as orange or yellow pustules or blisters on the foliage or  very young bark and may appear. at any. time from May  through July. -The rust specimens on pine should be submitted as soon as possible after collection and need not be dried. ���,,  Twenty or 30 infected needles,  or a small section of the infected  twig with a few. needles attached, should be. sealed in a kraft  bag, placed in a small cardboard  container, and mailed to Victoria.

It should be emphasized that  the presence of pine twist rust  is cause for concern and imme- .  diate attention by forest pathologists. There is, however, no justification for alarm. Neither poplar nor yellow pine will be eliminated as tree species of commercial importance as a result  of the activity of this disease.  On poplar the disease is confined to the foliage and, in the  case of severe attack, trees may  be defoliated prematurely thus  decreasing growth, and weaken-.  ing and possibly pre-disposing  the tree to attack by native diseases to which the tree might  normally be resistant.

On the  same day, William Manning  recorded his claim to District  Lot 688, immediately to the  east, and built his home where  the Irwin Motel now stands,  and a week later John Payne  claimed District Lot 690, to  the west.

Let us pretend that we  could hover over this section  of the earth's surface and  watch the scene below as it  altered through passing years.  Arthur Hyde, in setting out  from Vancouver between trips  to the Orient, would travel almost certainly by tug-boat,  for there was as yet no organized passenger service. He  would travel simply to Howe  Sound, for the name "Gibsons  Landing" would not be affixed to the port for almost another 20 years. He would land  at the Gibson house, set in a  clearing which earlier in the  decade had been a o_mp for  Moodyville loggers, bossed by  Alex Fraser.

Near where Arthur Hyde's  pre-emption cabin had stood  the Hicks family built their  home. The senior Hicks joib-  ed the predominant, industry,  logging and shingle-bolting,  and the sons, John, Frank and  Wilbur, did likewise, interspersing this operation with  stints on the gradually expanding road system.  *      *      s{s  In 1900 we would have  seen a government wharf being built just north of the  senior Gibson's home, and in  1909 we could have watched  roads . reaching out from it.  One crept along the coast of  Howe Sound, through the.  Chek-Welp Reserve and the  property newly purchased by  William Grantham from  George Glassford, toward th_  new wharf at Hopkins Landing. The other angled toward  the north boundary of the Gibson pre-emption, to follow an.  easier route than the first road  to the plateau above.  During the next few years  John Hicks, Jr. recorded in  photographs, many on glass  negatives, the life and appearance of the settlement at< the  end of a quarter-century of  existence.  In Vancouver, Tom Hick-  had established a taxi-cab business. In 1906, while the vehicles were still horse-drawn,  John McDonald ��� began to  drive Hicks cabs about the  city and on excursions through  Stanley Park. In 1913 John  purchased a 1912 Ford, especially designed, with glass  doors and folding top over the  rear seat, as a taxi; the first  specialized auto-taxi, he believes, in the city. He married  Maud Hicks, and in 1922 the  couple bought the family home  at Gibsons. In 1929 they "retired" here, and immediately  set about clearing land to enlarge the farm. For almost 30  years "Johnny Mac," in one  of a series of old vehicles that  seemed to run forever,' was a  a familiar sight, delivering  milk to residents "down the  hill."  * * *  Up to this point we have  perceived no unusual growth  in this comer of the slowly-  maturing settlement. In 1951  our hovering eye would have  noted the first major change.  Right next door to where  Arthur Hyde had built his preemption cabin, the Elphinstone  High School began to take  shape, and was opened early  in 1952. A ribbon of blacktop appeared along the highway to Sechelt. In 1954 Sunnycrest Motors and the Ridge,  way Cafe, now Danny's Motel  and Dining Room, were built,  and soon after, the old Manning home was razed to make  way for the Irwin Motel.  In 1956 Johnny Matthews  and Keith Wright, operators  of the M & W Store at Roberts Creek, bought the McDonald property, forcing Johnny Mac and Maud into real  retirement down the hill  among their former milk customers and in 1957 they built  the present Super-Valu Store  just north of where the house  'had stood. Now. extending  westward from this almost-  new enterprise, an entire block  of businesses has arisen, and  is in the process of opening  its doors. Certainly it requires  sheer fantasy {o superimpose  a vision of the past on this  outline of the present. Editor checks  (By Al Alsgard)  Publisher of Powell River News;  The road-link to join Port  Mellon to Squamish, thus eliminating one hour-long ferry link  on the Vancouver-Powell River  highway (No. 101), is a tough 18  miles.  But it can be put through; and  in  the words  of  its   supporters,  ."it may take a while to get it  started . . . hut let's get started."  Last week a trip organized by  Ed Lowe, of the Pender Harbour  Chamber of Commerce, saw a  group of Powell River,- Egmont  and Gibsons Chamber members  cover the route from Port Mellon to  Squamish.

In the opinion of , a  man who knows the country,  knows" rockwork, and road - construction, a roaokcan be punched through for'less than one million dollars.  The man is big dynamic Tex  Enemark, who has made his fortune in logging, construction and  related enterprises/ -A young  man, Enemark. thinks young  and his achievements prove he  knows how to get a job done,  once he decides to tackle it." And  he's ready to tackle the S-PM  road link.  The $50,000-a-mile figure he is  willing to bid will put a 24 ft.  dirt road over the 18 miles. "It  won't be a super-highway, but  it will be fully useable and^itywill  be a start," he says;: "Then let  the inevitable traffic , build-up  prove the need to improve fit.''  The road should follow roughly the B;C. Electric power line  from Squamish to Port Mellon.  It would open up some mature  timber now classed as inaccessible:  On the toughest part of the  proposed road, about three-quarters of a mile of tunnel through  a rock bluff would be necessary.  A logging road has y already  climbed two-thirds, of ;the-yway  across the bluff, but it is in the  snowline and so wouldn't be a  useable site all year. "But if  logging outfits can push roads  in this area, then,it can be done"  points out Enemark. ' ' ���'"  Some support for the road is  expected from  Canadian  Forest  Products, which operates at Port  Mellon. They need a water-line,  which   could  use" the   road-site.  At the just revitalized Wobdfibre  plant, which is now dependent on  ferry service to Britannia Beach  (across   Howe   Sound)   management would  ho  doubt be interested in having an all-year route  for employees' convenience; The  ferry service is tied up when the-  Squamish   winds   come   howling  down   the   Sound.

The cemetery is being visited by the thousands who are  travelling to view the restoration of the gold rush community  by the Barkerville Restoration Advisory Committee;  D D D for Squamish  A $300,000 dial telephone system, direct distance dialing service and seven-digit numbers  will be inaugurated in Squamish  in September, 1962, according to  an announcement by the British  Columbia Telephone Company.  Squamish is the last, remaining manually operated telephone  exchange in'the company's North  Shore district, its manager,  Frank McGee, points out. Mr.  McGee's territory extends from  Pender Harbour in the Sechelt  Peninsula to Deep Cove in North  Vancouver.  Coincident with the replacement of this Howe Sound community's 670 magneto-type telephones by dial instruments, Vancouver will replace Squamish as  the long distance centre for  Squamish, Britannia and Pem-  berton. Squamish will serve, instead, as an automatic switching  point for all calls to and from  these areas.  As a result of this change,  Vancouver will provide DDD ���  Direct Distance Dialing ��� as  well as handle all calls requiring the services of an operator.;  These include requests for infor-  mation, operator assistance, long  distance and repair  service.  To conform with the international DDD numbering plan, all  telephone numbers in < Squamish  and Britannia will be changed to  seven digits at the time of Squa-  mish's conversion to automatic  service. ���   .   ���  Squamish numbers will begin  892, followed by four more digits  Britannia's new seven digit numbers will begin 896. Because  - Pemberton's present two-letter,  five-figure , system ��� prefix  TWinoaks 4 ��� already conforms,  no number change will be required.  Automatic telephone service  and conforming numbering systems will 'establish-' Squamish,  Britannia and Pemberton as dial-  able points for the 50,000,000  phones in Canada and United  States which now have access to  DDD equipment.

During the , early construction days of 'the mill, Capt.  MacBryer came " to PR. He  ���could, not get a 'house, so moved his family into a tent/  where Nos 7 and 8 paper machines now stand. He felt it  was too grim a life for them  and decided to leave, but he  was too good a man to lose,  so the boss - prevailed on him  to stay and as soon as the  houses were-completed on Poplar St., he and his family were  given "one."  Then in Oct., 1914, when the  first bunch" of PR boys joined up with the Vancouver 29th  -Batt., MacBryer - was ' right  with them.
