Mrs. Jeffrey made the  baskets which were presented to  Mrs. Pearkes. Mrs. Dan Paull  warited to get on the platform  and sing a song for the vice-regal  parjty but time would not permit  so she decided to save it for the*  nex|. visit.

It is a great honor for our Indian' people to have Her Majesty's- representative for British  Columbia pay us a courtesy call  especially fat this time of the  yeai: when you are so busy with  morje important affairs of state.  .Our Indian people have very  often heard of your splendid records while serving overseas with  outf*Canadian forces during the;  wars.

'  During his address his honor  stressed the fact that pride in  their race as Indians and their  place as original inhabitants of  this; great country were a heritage of which they could be  proud.  He commented on the historical and beautiful village of Sechelt and was sorry his time was  so short he could not make a  more extended visit as, he had  to be in Vancouver to open the  Vancouver Festival that evening.  He was pleased to see that  sons of the Indian; band were  among the war veterans.

Ritchey, Gibsons  Another winner  Mrs. Anne Sneddon of Gibsons was last week's Treasure Hunt winner, obtaining  a $10.95 travelling case for  seven cents. Mrs. Sneddon  had one of the three winning  numbers posted in Thriftee  Dress Shop. And she had her  Coast News under her arm  when she visited the shop.  Treasure Hunt numbers  change each week. If a store  gets any number two weeks  in a row it will be purely accidental because the numbers  for all stores! are picked at  randohi every Wednesday afternoon and it could be that  a number might,be repeated  unknowingly.  centre of population will make  it practical for patients from the  lower area to receive hospital  care on the same basis as those  from  the upper area.  St. Mary's Hospital society is  now preparing the various estimates, required for the money  byij.v to be presented for landowners approval within the next  few months.  If the bylaw is successful, the  last major obstacle to the building of the new hospital will have  been overcome. The successful  passing of the money bylaw will  mean that construction will start  as soon "as working drawings  have been completed.  It will mean that landowners  have given final approval to the  idea of building a. new hospital  in a more central location which  will serve the residents of the  entire area between Egmont and  Port Mellon. At present the vast  majority of the population must  travel many miles to the existing  hospital. Despite the comparative  inaccessibility of the present hospital, by far the major portion  of its patients are from the lower, more densely populated area  . Soprano Mary Costa will  sing Tetania in the North  American premiere of Benjamin Britten's opera A Midsummer Night's Dream. Produced  by the Vancouver International Festival, the opera will be  rtaged August 2, 3, 5, 7 and  8 at 8:30 p.m. at the Queen  Elizabeth Theatre.  between Halfmoon Bay' and Port  Mellon.  The   new location  at   Sechelt  which  is a little north   of   the  The size of the proposed hospital has been determined by the  BCHIS on the basis of the total  population from Egmont to the  Port Mellon area. To suggest  that any one area can be detached and made into an im-.  provement district supporting a  second hospital is flouting the  economics of hospitalization. This  plan has been suggested as a  means of keeping the existing  hospital open after the new hospital has been constructed."  The population of the entire  Egmont-Port Mellon area is not  sufficient to support two hospitals. This fact has been emphasized by the deputy minister of  hospital insurance in a recent  letter to the Pender Harbour  hospital committee which has  put forward the idea.  The deputy minister has pointed out that acceptance of the  proposed money bylaw will show  that the majority of the landowners feel that a modern, centrally-located hospital is required. On this basis the operation  of two hospitals . for the acute  sick will not be considered by the  BCHIS at this time according to  information from Victoria.

Father McWade said Grace  and during the luncheon there  were two toasts, one to the  Queen by Magistrate Johnston  and to Lt.-Gov. and Mrs. Pearkes  by Mrs. Johnston.  His honor in a response to the  toast  said how  pleased  he   was  to visit Sechelt area along with  his wife. He was gratified to see  how with hard work an undeveloped country had been made into  a really  fine place  to live * and  bring  up  families   and   develop  Christian homes. He commented  on his visits to London where ix .  conferencps a^d other events he  had met the Queen and members  oi the Koyal t amily.

From the promontory that we named High Point on our island at  the entrance to Jervis Inlet one looks southward across Malaspina  Strait to Texada Island, a distance of about six miles.  To one's left the island-studded shore of Nelson Island runs out  to the prominent headland of Cockburn point while the view of the  coast recedes, blue beyond blue ever growing paler until it draws the  very heart out _of one.  That is our wonderful coast ������ a happy, wholesome playground.  for eager generations tb come ��� and there is no better place to sit  and see and dream than on a moss-cushiond rock ledge on our High  Point.  There I sat and lounged on a bright day, unable to think of any  place where I prefer to be ��� so I sat tight! Life was abundant all  about me;; offshore a short distance aflock of giills^hbvefed "and"  darted and scrambled over a great shoal of young herring; This we  knew, having pulled through them on the previous evening as we  arrived from Gibsons ��� and the mere thought of their numbers awed  ��s. ���'   .,. '.  The ducks were aware of all that free food too and were passing  over my head in singles, pairs and up to numbers I could^not count  -��� so low that I could have touched them.  They were passing over the point from a lagoon between the island and shore of Nelson, and they knew no fear. Ducks have an uncanny way of knowing when ��� and when not ��� they are being hunted.  While I was considering all this lively stir among creatures who  "own" my island just as much as I do ��� all of us being tenants for  a too-brief time ��� yet one more appeared in the person, a word I  use deliberately, of a hair seal who hauled himself up onto the first  ledge above the tide, with some difficulty, being, I believed, stuffed  with the last young herring he could swallow and ready for a sleep  in the sunshine.  We were both mammals and far advanced from the earlier life  form, so what was good for him was good for me. I ate the bite I  had brought with me, leaned back against the butt of a little Pinus  Contorta that had known many a storm, and fell asleep.  The greatest gift of our island to visitors is the detachment it  gives from those things that are too much with us. The walls of the  mental rut that is a danger common to all, break down in a fresh  environment ��� the mind is set free and the mind is man.  We are not alone!  For some of those people who get left off Black Ball Ferries owing to overcrowding, here is a morsel from the House of Commons  Hansard which should cheer them up:  Mr. J. R. Tucker (Trinity-Conception): Mr. Speaker may I direct a question to the minister of transport. Is the minister aware of  the fact that more than 100 Newfoundland bound travellers were left  stranded at North Sydney recently when they were unable to obtain  passage on the car ferry William Carson, and that this marked the  fourth night that travellers were left stranded at. North Sydney? If  so, what action has been taken?  Hon. Leon Balcer (Minister of Transport): Mr. Speaker, I was  not aware Of the unfortunate incident related by my hon. friend but  I will certainly bring the matter to the attention of the management  of the C.N.R. who are operating the ship:  Well ��� it seems we are not alone when it comes to being left behind. Might as well face the fact that at about the same time it is  happening all over the country when traffic is too heavy for the  means available.

It is a very ancient Rpyai  Burgh, and it proudly describes  itself as the "atewartry."    f  In. the years following ~.the  Norman Conquest some of the  invaders got that far nortbyand  acquired estates in this district  which was then neither England nor Scotland. These estates, in the absence- of -the  owner, were administered by  a Steward, as in the Bible, and  in course of time this became  the surname Stewart and the  Stewarts became the Royal  House of Stuart.  Kirkcubright is a beautiful  village at the mouth of the  Dee, the same Dee across  whose sands the unfortunate  Mary was asked to take. ?the  ���cattle home. There is a tiny  tidal harbor to which come  small Dutch freighters to load  milk powder and ice cream  mix from the nearby creamery.  The houses are old, stone,  lime-washed in various colors,  with gaily painted doors and  windows, all spotlessly clean,  as are the streets. The gardens  are full of roses, which Were  in the perfection of early  bloom. There is quite a colony  of resident artists, in fact, ^all  they have to do is to sit down  anywhere, with the materials,  and  find a  picture   waiting.

Born in St. Albany England,  he came to Canada in 1930,  going first to the prairies and  then to the west coast. During  the depression years, he worked in British Columbia's logging and fishing industries .  In the mid 30's, he joined  the old B.C. Police and was  posted, to its most northern de-  tachment in the Cassiar district. He \yas located for five'  years at Telegraph Creek and  was then transferred to Mer-  ritt and later to Kamloops.     ���  In   1941  he  joined R.C.A.F.  air crew and flew overseas on  a number  of   missions.   After  the war,: he entered Indian Af- .  fairs branch and was appoint-f  ed superintendent of the Crank  brook   agency.   He was  later  transferred     to     the    Babirie  agency   ait   Hazelton,  then  to  the   Kamloops agency  uid; iii  1954 became superintendent of .  the Cowichan agency at Dun- .  can.

It didn't occur toy us  ���that this was where Robert  Burns spent the last five years  of his life. His last home was  just down the hill and round  the corner from pur hotel, and  his last resting place a block  away.

Automobile  Association offers ten simple  rules of the aqualanes that  every boater  should know:���.  Except in an emergency, no  person shall anchor a vessel  in alay channel or fairway in  such a manner as to obstruct  ���the normal passage of other  vessels.  When the paths of two boats  intersect at right angles, the  vessel on the right has the  right-of-way..  When two boats are approaching* head-on, both steer  to  the right.  ' Fishing boats. with lines or  other gear out have the right  'of ������way...-'-.  Sailboats, rdwboats and  canoes have the right of f way-  over power boats. "������* ���  * Every ^pbwer-driven�� 'vessel  required to keep out of the  way of another vessel shall;  on approaching the other vessel, if necessary, slacken her  speed, or stop or reverse.  When one .vessel overtakes  another, the passing boat has  the responsibility for keeping  clear of tfaeybther.    ;  When blasts on a signal or  horn are used to indicate that  one vessel is about to pass another, the overtaking boat  should not pass until ths  other boat has returned the  signal.  'Do not sound the horn unnecessarily.  Watch your wake. You are  legally responsible for any  damage it causes.  The BCAA says that in a  boat as in a car, discretion is  the better part of valor, courtesy is the better part of safety  ������ and judgment is the better  part   of   craftsmanship.  forest and wildlife resources.

Thus we can almost  grow the kind of wood we  want.  Racial heredity is as important in growing better timber  crops as it is in maturing higher quality citizens.

GORDON BRYANT  NOTARY PUBLIC  at  Jay-Bee Furniture and  Appliance Store  Office Phone  8SR-2346  House  Phone  8.6-2100  Roses are so beautiful for indoor decoration that anything  which will help; to keep them  fresh looking should be encouf-  agedY       "z.;\-Z A...4  It is important that roses be  cut at the proper period in their  development, not when fully  opened. As illustrated in the accompanying Garden - Graph, cut  pointed rose buds when they are  still fairly tight. The globular or  rounded varieties should be cut  when they are partly open.  Roses cut in the afternoon will  last hours longer that those cut  in the morning, the poets to the  contrary. The reason is that the  afternoon-cut roses are sweeter.  Being exposed to the sunlight all  day, they have stored up more  sugar, therefore have more energy ..���, and endurance.  Use a sharp knife or pruning  shears to cut roses. Before placing them in water, make a new,  slanting cut at the end of each  stem.  Breaking or cutting off the lower thorns on a rose stalk,."as  shown, also makes it possible for  the stem to absorb more water  and thus prolong the life and  freshness   of the  flower.  Place the blooms in a container of water and leave in a cool,  dark room for a few hours  be  fore   exposing   them    to   warm  rooms  and   strong light.  At; night, the flowers���; should  be placed in fresh, cold, water  and left in the coolest;place in  the house.

It was first  used in the 1861 edition of A  History of American Manufactures, which listed the classification mineral waters and  pop as " heading for" data on  factories  in  various   cities.  Pop came not from the composition   of   the  product,   but  rather from the popping noise  made   when  the  gaseous pressure within the bottle was released,   by removing  the  cork  or  other  closure.   Its   use   has  persisted, but the term pop no  longer finds favor among.bottlers; of  carbonated beverages,  who  prefer  to  distinguish  the  quality products  of the Twentieth  century from their early  predecessors^,  of    the    1800'_,  when processes and ingrediencs  were   comparatively  primitive.  Another generic term among  the more prevalent for the bottled     effervescent    drinks    is  tonic. Its use has been largely  regional and principally in the  New   England States where  it  continues  to  be  used to some  extent.    Quite    obviously    the  term, has some background related    to    the ' tonic   or health  values early attributed to carbonated waters. In England its  limited   use   has   a - somewhat  similar  connotation  as  in   the  name   gin   and  tonic,   the  latter term referring to carbonated quinine water.  .

The camp was situated behind  the Gower Pdint store, operated  by Mr. G. W. Perrault. Participants were Mario Barendregt,  patrol leader; Ricky Wray, second; and Scouts Keith Rhodes,  Terry Forshner, Jim Dorval and  Jim  Campbell.  We arrived at the Gower Point  campsite at 1.30 in the afternoon  and set up a complete camp. The  rest of the day spent preparing  ,and eating supper and a short  hike along the beach collecting  driftwood, which we later displayed around the camp. Then  we had a first swim, which we  enjoyed very much. The day was  finished with a mug-up and at  10 o'clock we went to sleep.  In the morning of the next day  more useful gadgets "were added  to our camp. After lunch we had  a stalking game around the beach  followed by an hour of free time;  for all the boys. Thereafter we  had a swim amidst the big  waves. A supper of ham, potatoes and corn was prepared by  our cook, Ricky Wray.  A tree-felling demonstration by  the patrol leader and "open  house" for Seouters and other  visitors was held after supper.  A short entertainment was run  off with the assistance of the  Scoutmaster. After mug-up we  slept overnight on the beach  which was a wonderful experience. The last day was spent  swin | ing and a long hike along  the beach to Camp Byng where  we painted our names on a large  rock with a can of. green paint  salvaged from the beach. After  our final meal, we spent the remainder of the day striking camp  We thank Mr. and Mrs. Perrault for their kindness for allowing us to camp on their property  and Mrs. E.

Across the: foot on the narrow  table was a huge vase of colorful iris flanked by bowls of mums  in two shades of yellow.  At the  head a great vase of long-stem--  med   roses   stood,   with   dainty;  pastel  African   violets   in  small  pots   covered with fluted paperiY  Along the side of the bed were  other   small  tables   each   laden\  with blooms including tall spikes  of   deeply   colored   snapdragdnsf  and the heavily perfumed mock;  orange   blossoms. !  Hypo ��� she of the body ���\  opened a bleary eye. 4  "Holy smoke," she murmured..!  "I must be dead and don't knowf  it, or I'm alive and they don't;;  know it." )i  For two weeks/she had been |  made to suffer all kinds of in- $  dignities'''.and had come to the if  point where she dared neither  to turn her back to anyone in ;,  white nor yet face them. Already f  there was a groove in her lip  where a thermometer could rest, ���  and her arm automatically :  straightened out for a pressure :  test when anyone approached the ���']  hed. ���:  At first it had been only the  white clad folks that she had to  watch, but now she cast a wary  eye on anyone in "green; ever  since that day a couple of nursr  es had been. pushing her down  the corridor on a nice flat wagon  and suddenly from a double door  at the side four or five goblins in  green had reached out and-hauled them in.  She never did learn the fate of  the nurses, but Hypo had been  unceremoniously dumped onto a  table in the centre of the room  while one green character wasted no time in pinning an arm to  a board with adhesive tape while  another got busy with the everlasting pump. About that time  Hypo, thoroughly disgusted with  the whole business, said to heck  with it and went to sleep. Which  is how she came to be unable to  protect herself when someone  later, attacked her with a knife.  However, this is no mystery  story and so far as Hypo knows,  the police were not called in .on  the case.  She came to about, nine hours  later back in her hospital room.  A supper tray sat upon the bedside table, a teapot well in sight  beside the inverted teacup. How  welcome would be a cup of fresh,  hot tea; it had been some: time  yesterday when she had last  eaten.  - She tried to lift her head from  the pillow only to find that her  shoulders moved but her head  remained, as though weighted,  on the bed. Later she was to  discover that the green goblins  had decapitated her, basting her  head back on with black thread,  a color scheme which shocked  her aesthetic taste ��� she   was  somewhat of a stickler for match  ing colors.  In all fairness however, she  saw the futility of trying to match  thread to the aqua, ultramarine,  jaundiced hues of her neck with  which a nurse had painted it the  previous night, but she thought  there could be a more pleasing  contrast than black. Being basted in black seemed dreary.f "  The next time Hypo opened her  eyes it was to see the tray being  whisked out the door.     y  "Hey," she bawled, "I want  my tea!"';'- Y ���   ���  So the aide poured a;cup and  brought it back to the table.  Hypo guarded it lovingly until  she dozed off again. Each time  she wakened, her brain, foggier  than usual, considered ways and  means of imbibing the tea without avail. '���������.'  The following morning when  breakfast time came, she was  sitting up in bed holding' her  knees steady to receive her "tray  for which she reached gingerly  with one hand while she held her  head with the other. From that  time on not one tray got away  from her.  Days passed. Flowers continued to arrive and were" placed  around the bed. Finally Hypo  could stand this lying in state ho  longer and one day when the  staff was at supper she sneaked  to the telephone and made arrangements to leave the hospital.  That night when the get-away-  car arrived she fled downZ the  fire escape and was miles away  before "the nurse fetched, up at  -her .- former - bedside with the  needles, hypos, sleeping . pills,  thermometer, drugs and other  requisites for a restful night,  y Hypo's nights now are without  incident; and her days ��� alas  ��� are without trays.
