He was born in Kent', England  and came:to Vancouver in 1910  after a couple of years iri the  state of Virginia. He logged with  teams of horses in the Deep Cove  area in the early days and hauled building materials for such as  the old Vancouver Hotel, then  pioneered in the ice cream business. .

A- funeral service was held in  Burrard   Chapel,  North  Vancouver,. Thurs!, Dec. 27. with  Rev.?  ; John' H^Naylor^ officiating.-,Gre-^|  k    The-annual report to Gibsons village council by Jules Af Mainil,  frhiinicipal clerk,  stressed the fact jthat the village, faced with a  isteady increase in new houses, must look ahead and keep its water  jsiipply at a point where it can be equal ��to demand.  k     Here is Mr. Mainil's report:     Abbs: road. This was  necessary  due to the many hew housesf being erected in that area, f  y4. As forecast in last year's report, anf access road has been  built from the Henry, or as it is  commonly called, the Cannery  Road, to the main Municipal res.  ervoir and thence for almost  three-quarters of a mile to the  Upper dam and springs. This  meaqs that we can inspect and  service our. installations much  more easily.  5. Again as forecast in last  year's report, a new concrete di-,  versionary dam has been bu.lt  at the upper level springs. .The  old dam had originally been  built from logs, which were disintegrating and, as a consequence  much of the water was lost. This  dam was built as a 1961-62 Winter  Works . project. Both diversionary 6am and trie.:access road  were built by the municipality  with Works Foreman F. J. HoL-  land supervising;the jobs. Both  are very satisfactory.  The more important waterwork  projects for 1963. will be���  (a) the installing of a new. 3-  irich main from the upper dam  down to the reservoir.  (b) the -replacing of some. 2000 -  feet of 3-inch wooden. main running from the Bank of Montreal  corner along Marine Drive to the'  Chekwelp Reserve, with new f our  inch^transite main;  (c) installing secondary mains  as needed.f'   ;  All in all the water department  had a good: year. The increasing  demand for .water  due" to*  the  growth of the village is being met  with reasonable efficiency.  -.��� .���������: Following the now established  " custom in the municipality, I.beg  4'io_  submit  this   report,   showing  .^briefly a summary of 1962 busi-  .k.riess,  and' attempting some fore-  ;cast of probable needs for 1963.  ..-' FINANCES: While the year's  ... books are not as yet closed, I can  f'.safely state,that there will be a  ^reasonable., surplus.  The "surplus  k's due,mainly to careful fihanc-  ;:ing and from not making certain  .[expenditures which had been in-  kcluded in this year's budget.  ^ - WATER   DEPARTMENT:   Ex-  , penditure of this department will  'again be up to estimates as to  , .maintenance  and   operating expenses,   but  considerably  below  ^estimates on capital, mainly because 'only   about   half,   of   the  mains which had been budgeted  = for, have been installed, and because other capital works were  done   by the municipality at   a  yery modest cost.  The major projects in the water department were:��� g  /    1. Installation of some 21 hew  I. services, all metered/  k 2. Installation   of   a   two-inch  ,. connecting  main  with   reducing  (valve between the northern end  lofthe.tworinch main on the Margin Road arid the four-inch trans-  ate main on the  North Fletcher  Ttoad.   This   was   done   to  help  Equalize pressure in that general  -��rea   as well as to prevent the  accumulation   of  sediments  and  stagnant water in dead main ends  y 3. Some   700  feet   of  two-inch  "galvanized   main   was   installed  along the southern section of;the  &FT^i*kii  Women good shots  ' At the annual meeting of the  Sechelt Peninsula , Rod & Gun  club election of officers for 1963  resulted in the following slate:  President, Harry Batchelor;  vice-president, John Hayes; secretary, Bill Rankin; treasurer,  Mrs. Beatrice Rankin; entertainment director, Mrs. Lenore Nygren; fishing committee director, Don Caldwell and gun committee director, * Budd Fearnley.  Assistants on the fishing committee are Butch Ono and' Dan  Currie; assistants on the gun  committee, Ray Nygren and  Frank Jorgenson.  vThe annual reports indicated  an active and. successful year.  The junior program proved very  popular. Eleven boys passed  their" exams with very high  marks in October and the present class has over 40 members.  The boys are trained in safe  handling    of   fire  arms,  safety  while   boating   and   en?oy   field  trips to learn the use: of a compass.  Fishing trips are also organized for the boys.  A   free   eye  examination- has  ���been arranged for juniors at the'  Wilson    Creek   club   house    on  Thurs., Jan. 17 at 7:30 p.m.  One of the members of /the  ladies' group.

These buildings  vary between $200 carports, $15,-  000 houses and the $26,000 Pos:  Office.1  :.It might be noted here that  several employees of Canadian  Forest Products Ltd., Port Mellon, are building very good homes  in "Gibsons. Just another indirect  GIBSONS-SECHELT AIRPORT  MANAGEMENT    COMMITTEE:  This joint committee, made up  of two commissioners from Gibsons, two commissioners from Sechelt, and'.one member appointed by the Elphinstone Aero Club,  continues to operate efficiently.  The main purposes ��� ofthe committee are to administer the affairs of the airport, while at the  same time, improve its standards  so that it niay" continue to grow  as an asset of this.whole area.  On completion of the major  construction project, the airport  was officially opened by the  lieutenant-governor v on Wednesday, May 9, 1962. The organization of this official opening entailed a great deal of work hy  ihe committee. It was a success.  Even the untimely rain storm  could not dampen that success  CIVIL DEFENCE: Civil Defence is receiving continuing attention. The local orgarJzation rs  functioning well, so set up that  it could carry out its duties in  the event of any emergency. This  area is now in direct radio communications with the Vancouver  Targt Area Headquarters. Good  liaison exists between the local  group and Headquarters.       ; j.  GENERAL WORK AND MAINTENANCE: The importance.'bf  this work is sometimes overlooked. The water system particular,  ly must be supervised at all  t.'mes. Pumps must be operated  as needed and breaks repaired  as quickly as possible so as no!  to unduly disrupt the service io  the public.^ The roads, ditches  and culverts must be keot clean  and in good repair.

The overall standard is  improving consistently. Building  Inspector James Stewart is doing  a good job.  This coming year house numbering will be put into effect.  The system chosen by council  will use both a grid number and  the street names for house identification. It is hoped to issue  these numbers along with the  J 963 tax notices.  CONCLUSION: It is hoped that  the public will find this brief ^report informative and interesting.  I close by thanking council for  their kindness and understanding,,  and the citizens of Gibsons, for  tb-rr "-T-vtinuing curtesy and cooperation. Jules A. Mainil  k Clerk.     .

Interested persons have decided^ the tune '���: is how ripe for  such 'an organization.  SCANDINAVIAN FESTIVAL  ��� Friday,! Feb. 8, is when the.  Scandinavian Central committee  and affiliated organizations in  Vancouver, British. Columbia  plays C host to the peoples from  the Nordib lands, and their many  hundreds' of friends who enjoy  Scandinavian culture, as they  present; the annual Midwinter  Festival in the Pender Auditorium,. 339 West Pender St. y  Tickets are available from  members, of affiliated organizations, cr at the door on the night  of the festivial. '":  The village is without any rate-  :payer , voice other than persons  who make it their business to  appear f befare the municipal  council to air their grievance.  There are times when Sechelt's  Chamber of Commerce enters the  municipal field but in a general  way the chamber operates in a  field outside municipal affairs,  taking in such subjects as trans-  ��� portation, highways, tourism and  other widespread items concerning the area at large.        y    ���  TRe time has, come it was felt.  for Sechelt'as'.a village to have  a ratepayer, yoice which can  come only through a ratepayer  organization. ,At one time there,  was a Sechelt and District Ratepayers' association which iaded  through lack of interest. Present  plans call for the organization or  a distinct Sechelt organization,  excluding rural areas.  N. F.

Concrete steps have been erected,  the stone retaining wall has been  completed and the road from the  highway .to the beach has been  paved. Unfortunately this fall's  violent storms - have caused a  great deal of damage to the very  old secondhand floats. It is hoped to. start renewing and replacing these in 1963.  Cochrane Road park has been  levelled and the dangerous trees  felled or topped. This is .now a  nice little park. Council is very,  appreciative oi the work done by  some citizens of the Cochrane  Road area "to improve this beauty-spot.  ROADS: A normal road and  drainage program was carried  out..

While this road is still somewhat  rough in spots, it is well drained  and reasonably usable.  3. Thanks to Mr; G. R Fitchc-tt  who generously gave to the muni,  cipality an easement on part of  his property for the necessary  land, the entry from the highway  into Jacks Lane has been widened and rebuilt. This dangerously  blind corner has been greatly  improved.  4. Last year a covered drain .  age line was installed from the  Alderspring to the Gower Point  Road^flitch. This year the Aider-  spring Road was widened arid rebuilt from one end to the other.  This work has been a definite  boon to that area.  5. Flusbcoating was done on  the Martin Road, the North Fletcher Road and the Headlands  Road. Numerous road entries, intersections and parking areas  were paved.  GARBAGE: The garbage disposal method used in the muni  cipality continues to operate reasonably well. The disposal lot is  kept in good order by burning,  trenching arid covering.  GIBSONS VOLUNTEER FIRE  DEPARTMENT: The fire department "has bhee again stayed  within its budget. Some 400 feut  of new hose have been purchased. At the firemen's, suggestion,  Council provided the/material for  the erecting of restrooms at the  Municipal beach. ' The firemen  then designed and built the much  needed rest rooms. The;needs of  the community are ; always of  prime concern to Chief W. D.  Scott and his men.  LIBRARY; The library continues to be an important source of  pleasure and recreation to a large  body of our citizens. As the com.  m unity grows the library will  grow and present facilities will  probably have to be expanded in  the not too distant future. To the  library board and to all the volunteer workers, a very sincere  thank you from this   office.  Minimum  wage order  The Board of Industrial Relations has issued new Minimum  Wage Orders in the mercantile,  manufacturing, and hotel and  catering industries. These Orders  are effective January 1, 1963,  and establish a minimum wage  of $1 an hour for employees.  The orders, known as Orders  Nos. 24 (1962), 25 (1963), and  52 (1963) respectively, jwere issued following public hearings ���  where representatives of labor  and management had an opportunity to make their views known  The board considered all factors  involved, including a study of  prevailing wages and collective  agreements and the representa- *  tion made to it by interested  parties.  Under the new orders an employer is permitted tok pay an  employee 85 cents an hour during the first month's employment in the industry, 90 cents an  hour during the second month's  employment, and 95 cents an  hour during the third month. A  month's employment is defined  as a period of 22 working shifts.  Learners' rates, as such, are no  longer referred to, and differential rates between male and female have been removed.  School students reporting to  work on the call of an employer  on school days must be paid  their regular rate of ">ny for the  entire period spent at the place  of work in response to the call,  with a minimum in r.ny day of  two hours' pay. On davs that are  not school-days, students must  be paid daily minimums on the  same basis as other employees.  Printed copies of the new  orders will be available at the  various offices of the Department of Labor in the near future. ..J:  �� ��  Coast  News,   Jan.   3, 1963.

Mr. Macklam  has done a great deal of work on the school board in formulating  board policy and negotiating salary matters.  His retirement, due to a technicality, that of moving from an  area in which he was school representative to another area in which  he was not accredited as such, has left a gap on the board which will  be difficult to fill.  Another representative can be elected to fill bis seat but the experience of Mr. Macklam in administration) cannot be passed on. As  an official of the Canadian Forest Products Port Mellon mill staff  he has a business-like approach in getting to the core of a problem.  There is the possibility of his seeking the position of school representative in the Roberts Creek area where a vacancy will exist  shortly. When elected as such it would be a short step for him to  return to the board.  The Coast News will riot hesitate in advising ratepayers to support Mr. Macklam. The school board needs his type of thinking.  Water a big problem!  The annual report; to Gibsons municipal council by Jules A.  Mainil, village clerk is a definite progress report in which lurks  many problems for the future.  The problem to be tackled in 1963 will be an expanded water  supply. Housing is showing a cumulative growth and while Mr. Mainil has not mentioned it in his report, there is the future problem of  boundary extensions, making the village area larger than it is today  and containing householders whose first demand will be for a water  supply.  Gibsons has been fortunate in having a supply of water which,  while it has had deficiencies, is much better than having none at  all. But the village is emerging from its compact population of past  years and is filling out its vacant lots with homes, and good homes  at that.  In last year's report Mr. Mainil outlined the construction: of a  60,000 gallon storage tank near the older tank on School road. With  this as part of the reservoir system the village can now go ahead  and start on a definite expansion of water facilities.  A good water supply, schools, an expanding retail area, an efficient fire department, good medical services and a municipal council alert to the needs of the area will help Gibsons to continue as a  good place in which to live.  Forum for ratepayers  Efforts are underway ror the formation of a ratepayer association in Sechelt village Which should fill a long overdue need.  Sechelt has a chamber of commerce and a PTA but it does not  now have local ratepayer association meetings at which local municipal problems can be aired.  Ratepayer organizations can be an asset to any community inasmuch as they can be sounding boards for ratepayers and officials  of municipalities or school boards.  Discussion can be a bridge between misconception and fact.  Let's hope Sechelt's ratepayer association will be of the type where  discussion will predominate and bigotry find stony ground.  Beery beef in Japan  It is said, in Japan, anyway,  that the world's best beef comes  from the only place in the world  where they feed cattle on beer  and massage them with another  alcoholic beverage.  It is in the Japanese regions  of Matsuzaka and Kobe that  prize cattle-raisers team up, feed  their cattle beer to make them  plump and juicy, and then massage them with shochu, a powerful native alcoholic beverage produced from the common sweet  potato. The massage makes the  blood circulation more active  and thus distributes the snow-  white fat evenly throughout the  cattle's body.  Another secret is that Japanese  beef cattle are often a cross  breed between the native Japan-  es cow and the Swiss steer, a  hybrid most adaptable to Japan's  climate, although several Canadian cattle have been purchased by Japanese raisers recently.  The Japanese also feed their  prize cattle a very special fodder,  made up of flour and chopped  rice straw with a sprinkling of  sugar to produce more lustre in  the meat. All this is virtually  revolutionary for the Japanese,  who just 100 years ago.would not  eat anything that walked on four  feet. Today, however, Tokyo's  20,000 restaurants include many  foreign foods, such as 2,000 for  western style foods alone, and  the newest dishes are being carried to all remote corners of the  Islands through cooking-demonstration shown seen on the nation's 12,000,000 TV sets. ������ Japan  Reports.

As farm boys many years ago,  my two brothers and I had the  responsibility of doing the evening chores after the day's work  in the fields. Often it would" be  long after dark before: the livestock were fed and watered. 7.-  Sometimes the night would be  exceedingly dark before we were  through. Mother would then  place an old kerosene lamp in a  window at the house. After finishing our tasks, we would see that  lamp, and have no difficulty in  finding our separate ways back  to the house.

Where ever we  may be and however dark the  times, in Christ we can see the  light to lead our world into a  better day. He is the light of the  world. Whoever follows Him does  not walk in darkness, but has  the true light of life. The decision  lies with each of us to turn to  Him in faith.

LETTERS  to editor  Editor: Have just finished doing the island with riiy famiy. "A  high percentage pf the people;gri  Vancouver Island don't" knoW  Gibsons or Sechelt, haven't a  clue where they aire, and a small  percentage know about the Sunshine Coast but think it is expensive to get over here.  For example the manager of  the Tally Ho where we stayed  in Victoria had never heard of,  nor had his wife heard of Gibsons or Sechelt.  My wife, Rosemond, bought  20 copies of the Coast News in  Gibsons. One copy was given to  the waiter on the Nanaimo boat.  He thought Sechelt was in the  U.S.A. We had the same thing  happen to us on the "City of  Victoria." The hotel clerk at  Port Alberni had never heard of  Sechelt and. the'manager of the  Anco in Courtenay wasn't quite  sure whether we were islanders  here or.on the mainland.  The rack of free pamphlets ori  board the City of Victoria, etc.,  does not include literature re  the Sunshine Coast.���A. R. Simpkins.

He soaked bark, rags and hemp  in water and beat them into a  pulp which was then dried in  the sun to become paper.  TNS  THAT WINTER LOOK. Canada's countryside changes with each season. In the spring  Canadians delight to the lush yellow-green of new vegetation bursting from the soil, followed by the vibrant greens under, the summer sun and the brilliant red and gold tints o��  autumn. Winter, too, offers the countryside a change of dress, coating the trees with the  silver sparkle of ice and blanketing the fields with the fluff of white snow.  The Davis Ottawa Diary  By JACK DAVIS, M.P.  Coast-Capilano Constituency,  Parliament has proceeded at a  snail's pace since it met in September. On Dec. 20 it came to a  full stop. Hardly an item of major legislation has passed into  law and nothing of real importance has been achieved.  Who is to blame for parliament's fiddling while the nation  waits? The opposition has certainly wasted a great deal . of  time with its efforts to harass  and defeat the government But  the government must share the  blame as it has given no evidence of having any real plans.  Nine bills have received royal  assent since parliament met.  Three of these were. concerned  with the budget presented last  April arid left over when parliament 'was dissolved 'for' the election; the others were for such  useful, but hardly vital, purposes  as extending farm and export  credits and amending the Criminal Code and the Combines Investigation Act.  There is little sign of the long-  term measures to correct the basic faults in the economy which  the government promised when  the austerity program was rush  ed in last' June. It was expected  at that time that the vital program of economic reform would  have a high priority when the  new parliament met. When that  proved to: be not the case, the  best that, could be hoped for, was  corrective measures in "a Vnew  budget early in January.  Now that it is decided that  parliament will not iresume after  Christmas until January 21, the  belief in Ottawa is that the new  budget will not come down until  February- at the earliest. Due to  the precarious state of the government in the commons it is  possible, though not altogether  likely, that we shall be faced  with a new election before the  house really gets around to dealing with the root causes of our  economic difficulties.  Msmy members feel that the  -government is holding back controversial legislation for fear of  suffering a defeat in the commons. Such tactics would be a  grave mistake. It would be far  better, in my view, for the~gov-  ernment to risk defeat in an election in which it is offering  bold and imaginative leadership  to the country than to allow parliament to drift.while the nation  waits impatiently for action.  KNOW  YOUR  Prepared  by the Research  Staff of  ENCYCLOPEDIA   CANADIANA  A thought about trade  A letter to the Hants Journal  dealt. somewhat humorously with  the problems of today's shopper.  How the service in stores is generally, not always, quite; indifferent,to the customer and even,  tually >nded up by discovering  that, it was possible to buy what  she wanted of the same quality  in the local store and moderately priced.  Of the latter problem it should  be a byword to buy everything  you can locally, insisting that  your wants be supplied, because  there is no surer way of killing  a community than to take away  from its merchants their ability  to pay taxes and make a reasonable living.  Before) the excuse is made that  it is cheaper to drive 10, 20 or  Church   Chuckles   by cartwright  even 30 miles or more it will be  wise to be sure you know what  you are talking about and are not  being ridiculous.  In .regard to the former point  of indifference to the customer,  this is widespread, concerns not  only stores, but all sorts of industries/There is a simple cure;  the customers must assert their  rights to service and ability to  be able to purchase what they  want. If in doubt how to attain  this go to the top, the manager,  the owner. Many of them know  far too little how their estabJish  ments are being run, they fail in  the same way as their employees, and will welcome news of  their  failings.  Twenty years and more of advancing prosperity have made,  some people careless about their,  attitude to prospective customers, but most do not know what  is required of them because  either, the boss is too ignorant or  has not troubled to explain that  customers are important.  Service, you may believe this  or not, in any store or industry  or commercial undertaking irrespective of whether it is privately or state owned, still remains  the keystone of success.  Berwick (Nova Scotia)  Register  "Come, come, Tweedle, is this any way to meet  the challenge of a brand new year?"  BIG BOY  Largest mammal in the modern world is the sulphur-bottom  or blue whale. Not since prehistoric times had land or sea supported any living creature topped this big fellow in bulk or  weight. Blue whales measuring  more than 100 feet in length  have been found, but in the waters of the North Pacific they  seldom exceed 80 feet from nose  to tail. A weight of 120 tons is  recorded for an 89-foot specimen.  Blue whales feed along the coast  of British Coluriibia during the  summer months, generally in  concentrations of two or three.  Few   are   taken in commercial  catches in these waters.  Who first; sailed through  Canada's northwest passage?  Roald Amundsen, Norwegian  explorer. In 1903 he commanded  the stout little sailing ship, Gjoa,  which made the first voyage  ever undertaken from the Atlantic to the Pacific by way of  the northwest passage. In 1910,  Amundsen led the Norwegian  Antarctic Expedition. It reached  the South Pole in December 1911.  Fourteen years later Amundsen and Lincoln Ellsworth tried  to fly to the North Pole. One aircraft was wrecked and the other  had to turn back. The following  year, 1926, saw the intrepid pair,  with Umberto Nobile, an Italian  flying over the North Pole in an  Italian dirigible. In 1928 Nobile  again attempted an Arctic flight  in another Italian dirigible. It  crashed. Arriundsen and four  companions set out in a seaplane,  hoping to rescue the brave Italian. They were never seen alive  again.  Why is  "Alexander Mackenzie"  a famous name in Canada?  Because no fewer than four  famous men bore it. The first  was Sir Alexander Mackenzie,  fur trader and explorer. He was  born in 1764 in Stornoway,: Scot-  -land, became a partner in the  historic North West Company  and in an exploring expedition  reached the Arctic Ocean by  canoeing along the. vast river  that still bears his name. Later  he became the first iriari to cross  North America, north of Mexico.  Next came Alexander McKenzie, born about 1767, probably in  Scotland. He too became a. fur  trader and a partner of the  North West Company. He was  arrested by Lord Selkirk in 1816.  one of the North West partners  Later he was acquitted on the  charges laid against him.  Then came Alexander Mackenzie, prime minister of Canada. A Scotsman, born in 1822,  he came to Upper Canada at 20,  worked as a builder, became an  editor and then a politician. He  was prime minister from 1873 to  1878. He was offered and refused  a knighthood three times.  The fourth Alexander Mackenzie was a financier. This lawyer  from Kincardine, Ontario, was  born in 1860. He went to Brazil  to conduct legal business, remained to establish the massive  Brazilian Traction, Light and  Power Company. He was its  president for over 20. years,. becoming one of the most influential men in Brazil. He died in  Kincardine in 1943.

TRUE TALES  S^g  This little story relates to little white Tracey the Sealyham  whom many people remember.���  E. W.  When we agreed ten years ago  to give a home to a small unwanted terrier we little realized  how completely he would soon  own us and all our property. He  also decided ..that..,it .was..his  bounden duty to rid the world  of the cat population.  The wise pussies of the district  quickly summed up the situation  and realizing the. nature of the  new dictator in the neighborhood kept at a.discreet distance.  Iii fact not one, as far as we  know, ever ventured on the  premises, quite a large acreage,  as long as the terrier ruled.  At last full of years and happiness he died and because we  wanted to lay him to rest with  due honors, we placed him on  his  bed in  the house  until the  following day when we could  prepare a proper buriel place for  him. That night the unheard of  happened. A cat came caterwauling around the house all  night long. Next morning there  he was resting on the top of an  old stump at the bottom of the  garden and looking fixedly at  the house. Presently he. descended and- again began his perambulation of the premises loudly  wailing the while.  Late that afternoon we concluded the sad ceremony of  burying our pet and right then  the cat went away never to return since. We recognized him  for he lives in a house along the  route which the terrier travelled  twice each day on his accustomed walks. Was the cat paying  homage to a respected foe or  triumphing over his fall? And  how had he learned the news?  Who  can tell!  | CROSSWORD >   ��    -j   By A. C.

BOTH SIDE fi&JJElS  65 Do-it-yourself plans  Did you know that over 65 fir  -plywood do-it-yourself plans are  ���available from your lumber dealer? Built-in shelves and cupboards for the kitchen, bunk beds  for the children's room, boats  and backyard furniture can all  be easily constructed from these  easy to follow plans designed especially for fir plywood.  Fir plywood is an ideal material to work with too. It comes  in convenient panels of 4' x 8'. lt  can be nailed, glued and sawed  It's suitable for use either indoors or out. The waterproof  .glue line that bonds it together  is stronger than the wood itself.  Any housewife would appreciate a built-in fir plywood serving centre in her kitchen. It's designed -to fully utilize all available space and help her save  time in preparing meals.  The kitchen isn't the only room  that will benefit from the fir  plywood plans. There are designs  for every room in your home.  There's a built-in music and TV  centre that houses a radio, television and record player, with  plenty of space for storing records and books. Sectional coffee  tables are quick to make, and  can be used on the patio in summer and brought into your base  ment recreation room in winter.  Doing it yourself is not only a  money saving way to build, but  it's fun too. Fir plywood is easy  to finish. You can paint, tint or  stain it, or clear finish it with  lacquer or varnish letting the  natural grain pattern of the wood  show through.  There's hardly a homeowner  around who has all the storage  cabinets, music facilities, wardrobes and entry walls he wants,  unless of course he already has  the fir plywood habit.  See your lumber dealer soon,  and ask him to show you his wide  selection of fir plywood plans.

Convince  tourists  to remain  More than half of the tourists  who come to British Columbia  spend only a ��� small portion of  their vacation in the province,  it was disclosed by Hon. Earle  C. Westwood, speaking before  the federal-provincial tourist conference in Ottawa. He was presenting findings of a tourist research study conducted by, his  department during the; past summer at the Douglas, B.C. border  crossing point, and on the ferries  operating between, the U.S.' and .  Vancouver Island.  "The results will be of great  value, not only to my department; but also to everyone engaged in Canada's tourist industry," said Mr. Westwood.  "We have found," he added,  "that the majority of our tourists  are here only on a visit, sometimes for only two days, but on  the other hand, they appear able  and willing to spend longer. This  highlights one of the most important jobs facing us now. We  must convince these people in  our advertising and promotions  that British Columbia is worth  their entire vacation, not just a  visit."  The minister pointed up other  important results during the  meeting. Mr. Westwood noted  that "our tourist is older, wealthier, arid less likely to travel with  children than we had previously  thought. He appears more interested in our cities than in our  outdoor life, although very impressed with our scenery. He  ; wants us to be ourselves, to be  Canadians; visiting some place  different is important to him."  "Another   interesting   result,"  said Mr. Westwood, "was the  high percentage of Southern Cali-  fornians visiting us, far more  than we had realized. This points  up the need to devote much more  attention to this area."  Ending his report on a note of  optimism, Mr. Westwood rioted  that "oyer 80% of the visitors  questioned said that they wanted to come back to British Columbia again. This is a very  hopeful sigh, and should mean a  prosperous future for our tourist  industry, provided we make sure  that these people don't forget  about us."  Canada in 1230 pages  Release of the 1962 edition of  the Canada Year Book is announced by the/Dominion Bureau  of Statistics. This edition is the  56th in the presehit ' series which ���  continues a long>-record of earli-,  er publications that supplied, official statistical and other information on Canada's development  during the 19th and 20th Centiir-  'ies. ������   .   '.'.";  The Canada Year Book 1962  contains some 1230 pages of textual and statistical material dealing with the physical features of  for Scouts  Thirty-nine Boy Scouts and  four leaders have been, chosen  to represent the 40,000 Boy Scouts  in British Columbia at the 11th  Boy Scout World Jamboree to  be held at Marathon, Greece dur.  ing August, 1963.  The boys will leave Vancouver  by train about July 23 to join 400  others .at a camp in Ontario before embarking on special aircraft for the flight to Greece. The  group will be away about one  month.  The cost of the trip is being  borne by the boys themselves and  many are now working at odd-  jobs and saying their money towards this adventure. y  The Jamboree site is near the'  ancient city of Marathon where  the Olympic Games were held  during the great days of the old  Greek civilization. Boy Scouts  from nearly every country riot  under Communist domination will  be camped together in a- vast  city of tents.  World Jamborees are held every four years and,locations are  selected by the World Coriferericc  of Scouting from applications  submitted by countries willing to  host these events.  W. G. H. Roaf, Provincial Commissioner of Scouts recently reported that the selection boards  had a most difficult time deciding among the many applicants  to fill the few places allotted to  British Columbia. Only those boys  with, the highest standing in their  Scout work and'whose characters".  exemplify the Scouting ideals  were chosen.  yrThe. boys   were recommended^���,  by their Scoutmasters   and District Commissioners and in most  cases were personally interviewed by Regional Selection boards.  the country, the machinery of  government, vital statistics, public health and welfare, education,  scientific, atomic, space and industrial research, the primary resources of agriculture, forestry,  mining and fisheries, y manufacturing, labor, transportation and  communications, domestic, 'and  foreign trade, finance and national income and expenditure.

Do you picture in your mind's  eye a noble red man in fur pants  and deerskin mocassins, hacking at a tree with a stone axe?  If so, you; lose the wampum,  friend. Because the totem pole  carver., you will find today will  likely as hot be a fellow'like Bill  Reid of Vancouver, who frankly  eschews fur pants.  To be truthful, Bill wears well  cut slacks while plying his ancient craft. Instead of deer-skin  mocassins, he wears leather  shoes with vinyl soles. And on the  day that a photographer went  around to get Bill's picture carving totems, he found him using  ��� not an ancient stone axe ���  but a rip-roaring, time-saving PM  Canadien chain sa\v.  You may well ask how a fellow  like Bill Reid ��� for inany years  a CBC radio announcer -��� became a totem pole carver. The  ariswer is that Bill's family tree  stems from the Haida's on his  mother's side. And Bill's grand-  frther was a noted totem carver.  And so, in time Bill' developed  more than a passing interest in  the ancientV, art ���: forrn. He also  learned to produce ��� and today  turns out in quantity "������ some of  the finest jewelry hand-crafted in  British  Columbia.  Bill first began using a chain  saw to carve totem poles about  four years ago when he and another chap were commissioned to  carve totems at the University of  B.C.  Before their assignment was  completed, they had carved seven totems ��� the biggest standing  55 feet high ��� and had built two  massive Haida houses.     .  "At first, I just used the power  chain saw for bucking," says  Bill. "But as time went by, I  used it more and more and finally used it for all roughihg out"  His trusty chain saw eliminates  most of the work of using big  axes, hatchets and the ancient  adze in doing the rough work.  One big totem takes about six  months to carve by hand. But  with the help of the power chain  saw, Bill saved a month or six  weeks ori each carving.     '���.'���.-.  Bill and his co-worfcef Doug  Cranmer, have carved a number of totems in the Greater Van  couver area. And next summer,  Bill will apply his ancient sEhs  once again ������this time to carve  a totem in the form of a great  crouching animal for a well-to-  ao business ihan.  But you can; be sure that while  the art form will be ' old, the  great carving tool used will be  new ��� a brand new chain saw  ��� nice and light, but.filled with  power.: And it will cut many  weeks frorii the job ��� saving Bill  This is unofficial  It was unofficially learned that  Coast Ferries will operate a Powell River-Comox ferry link next  summer. It is expected the company will continue the operation  en a year-round basis.; ���  Information was received that  the provincial government has  written a letter to the Powell River Chamber of Commerce stating that if Coast Ferries; institutes  a ferry link and that at, some  later date the government decides  to take over the run,-it will make  arrangements to .purchase the  ferry from Coast \ Ferries.  O. H. New; managing director  of Coast Ferries, is awaiting a  copy of the letter sent to the  Chamber of Commerce. When it  is received he will likely proceed-  with plans for building of a ferry.  Jonathon Wood  Last rites were held in St. Hilda's Anglican church with Rev.  Canon Alan Greene officiating  for Jonathon Bentley Wood; He  was a native of Yorkshire, England and a veteran of the First  World War, and a charter member of the Sechelt branch of the  Royal Canadian Legion. A Guard  of Honor attended the service  and Bugler John Thomas sounded  the   Last  Post.

If an   owner, is  under-25  years   of .age,  or-has a male  driver under  25  using, his   car  occasionally,.. or. if hedrives to  work, uses his car for- business,  or has- had ari accident within  three years, his statistical likelihood of becoming involved in an  accident   increases   and his  insurance  rate  rises  accordingly.

PAINT  FOR CONCRETE  Basement walls of concrete  brick or stucco can be brightened by applying, a coat of acrylic  paint. First wet the surface with  a hose to fill in the porous surface. Then apply the paint while  the wall is.'still wet. The paint  should be applied with a heavy  pile roller such as lambswool or  mohair or a 7" whitewash brush.
