Hail to .Bill Payne, Conservative victor in the Coast-Capilano federal election campaign and farewell to Jimmy 'Sinclair, defeated 'Liberal, who really deserved  "better* treatment from the electors than he got.  Mr. Payne, our new member in Ottawa, can be assured  that the cqlunmsrOf the Coast News will be as wide open to him  as they were to Mr. Sinclair and to our provincial representative  Tony Gargrave. . ������.������/. ������'  ' No matter what one's political Opinions may be, the elected member who represents the majority isentitled to a fair hearing through the press.

"I. would be lacking: in charity if I did not say a word  about our former member Jimmy Sinclair. As a man he did  ���a gool job for Coast Capilano.  He did his best. He did it well.  I never voted for him and al?  ways opposed his. policies but  18 years of personal service  should not go unrecognized??

They will do a good job.".,.  t  Gibsons and Area Volunteer  Fire Brigade is looking over  places where a fire truck to  service areas*- outside Gibsons  can be housed. Two or three  projects are under consideration? and? one of? them is the  use of a building owned by  William Weirihandl, on North  Road, arid another is the use*"  of propertynear the Ridgeway  Motel..  ���  Another idea being checked  is the possibility of having ,a  section of Brothers Memorial  Ceritennial <Park ?set aside for  the building of-a firehall in  the future; ^ -  ?;' The firefighters report the  drive, for members ih the outside areja to be ori the move  and a that interest is growing  withnaariyp^sqns seeking information and signing up.

Tom and Pat Lusk and  others were working outside  the hotel when Bud Moore, 16,  an.employee cutting the lawn?  -noticed smoke coming from  the? upper storey and sounded  an alarm.  The Port JVEellon fire department under Fire Chief Don  Dunhairi: responded quickly  and soon had: water playing  on the blaze. They managed  to keep the fire from spread-.  ing to tlie lower storey iri spite  of the fact the building is of  cedar siding arid wood ' construction throughout.  *'���'��� The building with 18 rooms  upstairs and a, lounge, dining  room, lunch counter and beer  parlour on-the main floor was  about 25 years old. It was  owned by Canadian Forest Pro  ducts and it is believed plans  are underway for rebuilding  as soon as possible.  The room were all filled but  most of the occupants were in  Vancouver for. the weekerid.

Close to 500 persons crowded Elphinstone high school  hall Friday night to see the  students stage Gilbert and Sullivan's Mikado. From the opening chorus of nobles describ-  'ing who they were to the final  chorus in which the threatened. x  cloud had passed away, the  performance can be described  as an ambitious one carried  out with great success.  It was a success because it  was the. first effort of such  jmagnitude attempted by the  students. It? was ambitious to.  say the least and required a  great deal of work to put it  across?  The scenery prepared by  members of he Art Club gave  an opening clue as to the quantity and quality of effort.

Next came Tom Helena as ?Pooh:Bah then Gary  Butler as Nanki-Poo and Wilson Anderson as Pish-Tush.  Dick Vernon, as the ..Emperor  of Japan had a difficult role  to handle and carried himself  well but could have been more  despotic.  Laurels should, go to Jean  Hague, Heather Bracewell and.  Lloyd Burritt because they  carried, the performance. Any  weakness in their roles would  have-.created difficulties- for  the other characters^. To say  certain characters carried :the  performance is partly correct  because without direction from  Mrs, E. Vernon, piano, accom-  pariinxent-by.Lynj,Vernon and  a minimum- of- prompting by.

I will destroy this  temple that is made with hands and in three, days I will build  another made without hands." '  Ciaiphas, son-in-law of Annas; head of the priesthood  hierarchy arranged the trial. Jesus made no attempt to deny the  charge. Unanimous consent of those hearing the trial led Ciaiphas  to pronounce sentence of death.  - Execution of the sentence w^s not within the powers of  the priesthood so Procurator jPilate, who had such power, had to  be convinced the death .sentence was->warranted. He demurred  rnd sought a way out of his predicament. It was Passover time  and a period yvihen rulers on great occasions granted pardon to a",  political prisoner^ So Pilate decided he might get out of his. pre-  dicament by offering a choice, free Barabbas, convicted, of murder and sedition, or free Jesus, a leader, of a movement. The  crowded court area was packed by friends of the priesthood who  demanded the freedom for Barabbas. Crucifixion of Jesus fol-V  lowed. ;.-....',.  Lionel Curtis, a prominent member of the Round Table  fraternity back in the 30's wrote an excellent work, The Com.-  monwealth of God. In it he summarizes! his thoughts on the trial  and crucifixion of Jesus. He wrote: ,\  "Of all the lessons brought to my mind in the long task  .of framing this narrative the deepest is this, .that apparent failure when faced with courage and examined with reason, is the  road to superlative triumph?. That I believe is the true meaning  which underlies all? that has; happened since the dawn- which  broke on Easter Day. The -spirit of phrist rose from his grave.  It moved and yet moves the souls of men to face arid accomplish..  the task which He set them."

HempsaU  Community   Chairman  By Hubert Evans  Each fall when the curtain  of Indian summer comes down,  people in other parts of rural  Canada are put on their mettle  by the?; certainty of winter; a  hard ana positive sort of winter. Almost overnight woodpile and storm windows, silo,  root-house ?and hay shed become strategic defense points  in the, long white siege and. the  very air carries the tingle of  challenge. A hearty feeling of  preparedness gives zest "to the  chores of farm and kitchen.'  But in our coastal British  Columbia settlements the  thought, and often the spoken,  word, is, "Summer has gone."

At the time of the Red River uprising of 1870, Andre  Nault led the Metis Indians,  who seized Fort Garry, and  commanded the firing party at  the execution of Thomas Scott.  Nault was born in 1829 in the  Red River Settlement. Though  he had no Indian blood, he  spent his. life among the Metis and was regarded by them  as ��� one of themselves. After  the uprising he took refuge in  the U.S. but returned to Canada some years later to-die,  at St.? Vital, Manitoba, at the  ripe old age of 95.  Which   was   the  first   French  regular- regiment  in  Canada?  The Carignan-Saiirees constituted the first andonly regiment of regular troops sent out  from France to serve in the  small colony and subjugate the  Iroquois. The . regiment arrived in the suminer of *1665 after repeated requests rfrom  New France, but its work was  only partly successful:.-Of:-the  li-Sy una sent out, more than  itoO. died, from disease and fron  tier warfare. About 40ty remained in Canada after. 1668.  taking up land and* con-tinu-  ing to act as a guard fens the  small colony.  Who was John Gyles?  John Gyles was the 1*2 year  old son of a judge at Pema-  quid, > Me., who in 1689 was  carried off by a Maliseet Indian during a raid. After six  years of great hardship he was  sold to the Sieur de ChauffeUri  who held a seigniory on the St.'  John River. When he was 19  Gyles was responsible fc* having his master's property spared by New England, raiders.  This won him his freedom and  after an absence of nearly nine  years he returned to New England. His "Memoirs of Odd Adventures, Strange Deliverances, etc., in the Captivity of  John Giles, Esq'... Written by  Himself"   is   one of the most  famous narratives of Indian  capacity; it is also the most  important account in English  of life in New'Brunswick during the 17th century.

Regina, capital of Saskatchewan, was once called "Pile  of Bones;:" $n pre^settlement  days, the.area had been a favored buffalo-hunting ground  for the Indian iand Metis. The  herds were run into pounds  constructed along the creek.  Bone piles, accumulated from  the frequent slaughters, gave  the creek its name, which in  Cree is Oskana or Wascana.  Such a riaime was deemed inappropriate for a capital, and  Princess Louise, the then Gbv-  ernor-Geherars w|fe, renamed  the site, Regina, in honor of  her mother, Queen Victoria.  The location of the? CPR? railway determined: the choice; of  Regina as capital by the federal government and the CPR  officials in 1882. The old capital of the province, Battleford,  proved to be too far north of  the railway. .  ^r,^3^?canjgaignf; .,^:?.: ^^^l^^,-  yyy--; !;;^Tnereare so many futod drives  nowadays that we someUmes approach the press with some itrepir  dation However, despite'the impositions on your time and space,  you always respond nobly to otir  needs.

It seems reasonably  certain that many . of the  world's greatest benefactors  have spent a lot of time in the  same school. They owed their  purpose and resolution to the  obstacles they met and overcame. I once'heard a millionaire tell a group of [ friends  about his experience as a news  boy. He said: "I ha_ a tough  time and was often discouraged but %know now it was good  for me. I learned to meet the  public arid when rebuffs and  insults came I took it ion the  chin and kept on going."  Many a man with such experience decides to protect his  own children from such hardships and surrounds theni with,  luxuries he never, knew, as a  lad. He has them driving, expensive cars while still in their  teens. What happens? in most  cases they pathetically lack the  -strong qualities of their fathers.

On the .east  coast- of Britkin, near pogger ?  ^ Banks, there are many little  fishing villages where, for  many generations, hardy fishermen, reap the harvest of the  sea and send it on to London  arid other cities.  There is no scarcity of fish  in the near-by waters but the  fishermen's - troubles began: after the fish were caught.-The  fish, when on >their way to  London, were kept ih "large  tanks with perforated sides so  that the water- from th# sea  could flow in and out and thus  the fish were kept fresh. There  was, however, this drawback;  once securely in the tank  which was- lowered into the  sea, the fish ceased to swim  around and simply lay lirnp  and listless. When delivered  at Billingsgate, London's fam  ous fish market/ tliey did not  appear as appetizing or fresh  as when they had been first  ��aught, although they were  still alive.e All the fishermen  had the same trouble ��� all  but one.  "**���       'S~       ���������>  There was one fisherman  who managed to get his fish  to market in excellent condition. He handed them to the  delighted merchants, healthy,  lively and firm as when they  were first caught. Naturally  the dealers were all anxious  to buy from this man and to  pay him the highest price.  Other fishermen marvelled at  his success and vainly guessed  at the secret of it. Thaty went  on for several years and all  their guessing was in vain.  Justr before his death the ���  ojd fisherman instructed his  daughter to pass, on the secret  to the other men. She told  them that her father used to*  drop a catfish into the perforated tank. This kept the other  |fish in a. state of excitement,  a perfect ferment of agitation  and alarm. They never got a,  cnance to lie there and become  limp and listless as did the  fish in the other tanks. The  catfish wouldn't allow them to  be lazy; it was. constantly on  the go and kept them Jon the  go.  *   ;'*,   *  ���.,;. ;There is something worth,  remeriibering? in- that story.

OFF TO TERRACE  Mrs. J. Garlick left by plane  April l,.for a yisit for a couple  of weeks -with her parents in  Terrace, B.C. ���<��  6    Coast News, April 3,  1958.  By Mrs. M. Newman  It was in 1913 that the settlement of Block 2596 and adjacent property at Roberts  Creek began and by the end  of that year several families  had moved on to five, 10 and  20 acre lots. Among the first  of these were Ed Truesdale,  his wife, small step-daughter  and infant son.  Their lot was immediately  back of that owned by Joe  Crow and they came to it a  few months before the Crows  arrived from the prairies.  It, is supposed that their intention was to farm, but how  or with what is not known.  Their land was ��� barren of all  growth except salal and pine  trees.  In an attempt to get water,  Ed dug a well, going down  through 40 feet of shale. The  lower he went the drier it became, until at last he gave it  MULTl-MJLLION  DOLLAR LURE!  One out of every four men  in B.C. now participate in *'  sports fishing. For gear,  transportation, gas, oil, accommodation they pay on  the average $120 per year  to enjoy this recreation.  These dollars, added to  those produced by the commercial fishery amount to a  veritable fortune for British  Columbians.  Recognizing these . facts,  B.C.'s salmon industry  works closely- with those  concerned, to preserve and  perpetuate this important  resource for recreational  purposes, as well as for it*  vital food value.

Perhaps he did not  know that he was midway between two creeks, either one  being nearer than the spring.  Perhaps he did know but went  to the spring by the road in  hopes of seeing a passerby.  To say Mrs. Truesdale was  lonesome is an understatement  Quite   regularly    she    carried  her washing over rough trails  to the J.  Darward's home so  that she could have ' companv  While   doing   the  laundering.  Quite frequently she lost bits  of it on the way back, which  gave her an excuse to return,  for another opportunity to talk  During    that    first    winter  when  all about them "lay the  silent snow, and day followed  monotonous  day,   Mrs.   Truesdale suddenly demanded to be  taken tp the doctor at Gibsons.  As there was no conveyance of  any kind available, Ed set to  work   and   built  a  sleigh,   on  which he pulled the sufferer  six weary white miles ��� and  back again. At least it was an  outing.  Across the road from the  Crow farm, on land, which  later became the Whitworth's  there was5a tiny shack built  upon stilts, and in it lived a  bachelor, Bill Bennett, and a  friend who was visiting him.  These two were not noted for  early rising, but on the days  when Mrs. Truesdal'e's loneliness was at its peak she descended upon the two helpless  men trapped -within, sitting for  long hours on their doorstep,  'talking through the walls at  them. They doubtless gazed  with longing eyes through the  wiridow at the vista of trniber  that surrounded their prison  and regretted their erstwhile  laziness. -  The. dwelling that Ed Truesdale had fashioned for his  family consisted of one rooiiri  and an enclosed porch. It was  made entirely of shakes and  logs and was lined with build- ,  ing paper. But for the rumor  of John Muilins' hidden treasure this hardy little house  might still be intact.  The Truesdales went from,  here to the Harrison Lake district where they hoped to find  fewer trees and more people  and the waterless well and  the pine trees passed on to  John Mulling in 1918.

Save for a brief between  beat rest, it keeps right on  working ��� day after day, year  after year.  Contrary to popular belief,  the heart is not a delicate-organ. It is tough, and amazingly durable. From the standpoint of mechanical perfection  no pump created by the genius  of atomic age science can surpass it.

Yeti either wholly or  in part, it is not immune to  sickness and disaster.  The extent to .which this is  true is mirrored by some grim  statistics. Diseases of the heart  and circulation, now responsible for about 51 percent of  all deaths, affect more than  1,200,000 Canadians, among  them 60,000 children of school  age. .   *     ;  They constitute Canada's  foremost health problem and  the leading medical challenge  of our time.  Until only, two or three decades ago, the view was widely  held that "nothing can be done  about heart disease," which  was seen as the inevitable forerunner of death ��� something  quite beyond the reach of med-  vical science.  In years past,' this same fatalistic viewpoint prevailed regarding such "epidemic" diseases as smallpox, typhoid and  j yellow  fever,   diphtheria   and  ! bubonic plague. As the infectious diseases succumbed to  medical science, so have many  other   disorders   of   the  body  been remedied or cured by new  advances in drug therapy and  surgery.

Her opening remarks to  throw the program away be-  fckuse she was not paying any  attention to it, set the audience  at ease. -  From ^then. ori she sang  her way through, folk songs,  of many lands and sang them  with a voice exuding warmth  and a pleasantness refreshing  to say the least.  It is no easy matter for one  person, even good looking and  with a beautiful Spanish guitar, to occupy the centre of a  large stage for about two hours  and please an audience. That  is just what. Nina Dova did  and did well.  There would be those per-  numbers and others would pre-  jsons iwho liked the English  fer the French but the writer  iliked her in the Latin American and Spanish numbers best.  Her' playing pf the guitar was  the work of one who apparently loved the instrument and  found, it a good companion.  Nina Dova in explaining why  the program was to be, thrown  away said she was in the mood  for other songs: It is difficult  to judge whether the audience  suffered any by not being able  to follow a program but if the  programmed concert had been  given, it would have had to  be of top quality to match the  performance  the  audience  heard.  Nina Dova has a "commanding stage appearance,, is an artist and as such has apparent-  ly ,made a wide study of tlie,  her George Gershwin Slimmer- ���  folk song in many lands. ?Even  time from Porgy and'Bess was  superior to many others by  singers with more prominent  names.  The evening's entertainment-,  was well worth hearing and it  wound up another season of  Overture Concerts with a standard that has been maintained  in all performances to date.
