 J_��ovisia_al Library,  *  Just Fine Food  DANNY'S  DINING   ROOM  Phone Gibsons 140  SERVING  TRE  GROWING^ SUNSHINE COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C. Vol ume 1% Number 22, May 29, 1958.  RAY  WHITING  RADIO-CONTROLLED  PHONE      O^fcO     GIBS0NS  24 HR. COURTEOUS SERVICE  Commisioner C.P. Ballentine  tendered his resignation to'the  Gibsons Village Commission  Tuesday night? because of  ill-health. Council did not accept the resignation but suggested he take a leave of absence for three months-for the  time toeing rather than force  an election to fill a vacancy on  the council. Mr. Ballentine  agreed to this.  Latterly Mr. Ballentine has  ibeen under doctor's orders and  he is taking this step with  some reluctance.  The roads debate ended  Tuesday when Gibsons Village  Commissioners voted to blacktop the School rd. from Sechelt?  Highway to N. Fletcher rd. at  a? cost of $7,975; black-top S.  Fletcher road at a cost of  $7,091; and also black-top  Wynn road at a cost of $846,  making a total of $15,912. The  (School rd. would be a3% inch  surface and the .other^ two  xoads 2V_ inch siirfater    The    motion   proposed    by  Commissioner. Crowhurst after lengthy debate also called  for double-flush. coating or repair as required, the Dugald  rd. and to repair Dugald,  .Franklin and Headlands roads.  Chairman Ritchey said that  for the last few years the commission agreed the School road  should be paved as soon as possible in order to maintain it as  a road because it cannot be  held permanently as a gravel  ���road. Other roads should be  imaihtained or they would be  a costly expense later on; he  said.  Commissioner Ballentine  thought Franklin and Dugald  roads could be repaired and  prepared for another flush  coating next year for about  $500.  Costs associated with connecting business establishments  to a sewer outlet wer�� discussed when persons eoncerned  sought information, "the places  "concerned are" hi" vicinity of  the   Post   Office.   Information  will be obtained and supplied  for study.  Tony Gargrave. M.L.A., attended and greeted members  of the commission. He was in  the area on a general visit.  A letter rom the Powell River ��� and District Centennial  Committee asked that Chairman A.E, Ritchey be on hand  June 14 when a Powell River  cavalcade will pass through  Gibsons en route to Vancouver  to advertise the Poweil River  sports day June 29. The commission concurred and Mr.  Ritchey and the R.C.M.P. will  be on hand to greet the cavalcade. .  Commissioner Crowhurst reported an a?r. lock in a part of  the .fresh water system has  been removed and people who  were deprived of water were  now quite happy. ������'*-*  One' commissioner reported  on what he termed lack of interest by the R.C.M.P. in a je-  cent rape case because prompt  action was  not   taken   at the  �����.:>-;���<:  time it was reported. The matter] was referred to Mr. Gargrave for the attention of the  attorney-general's department.  The commissioner reported  th�� R.C.M.P. did not appear  in the case until 9 a.m. next  morning The case was reported  to them at about 2:30 a.m.  Sam Fladager told of a wo-  mail leaving his store and foe-  ingfalmost run dawn by a car  speeding at about 50 mph in  ���a.2$ mph zone. Chairman Ritchey explained the speed limit was 20 mph and told of three  car| that kept racing past his  hoilse during the night with  mu|��lers wide open and that if  he-piould have got their numbers he would have prosecuted.  He ���? urged everyone to make  ah ^ffort to stop this menace  by ^making some prosecutions  of some of these "crazy young  punjfs."  Jules Mainil was village  cleric at the meeting as Robert  Burns, permanent clerk v^s in  Victoria attending a municipal Conference.  Gasoline price difference  lie  The price of gasoline in this  area was the subject of discussion at the Board of Trade  meeting and it was pointed out  that] gasoline can be obtained  two? cents cheaper at Andy's  isay, than it can be -obtained in  Gibsons and other points near  here..  Under the zoning" "plan of  oil , companies, Gibsons area  comes under a specific zone  i>rice and that points slightly  closer to Vancouver get it at  a cheaper rate. It , was also,  pointed out that gasoline cost  just as much in Gibsons as it  does  in   Nanaimo   where   the  on men  Two members" of 'Pender  Harbour branch were honored  last, week for outstanding contributions to Legion activities  over the years.  Before a representative gathering of> Legionairres and  members of the Ladies' Auxiliary, Captain RtL. Jermain,  R.N., (Retr), received a life  membership. The presentation  was made by Zone Commander .  Fred Claydon. Mrs. Jermain  was presented with a corsage.

Refreshments were served by  members of the Ladies Auxiliary.  haul is over a greater distance.  * Further study will-be made of  the situation before action will  be suggested.  One member in discussing  treatment accorded visiting  pleasure craft here commented  on the fact these visitors were  surprised the federal government" was hot "giving any consideration to pleasure craft in  its    breakwater    setup.    They  ' were of the opinion more pleasure craft would be attracted  here if there were better facilities. This member also com  mented on the lack of facilities  in some stores which resulted  in visitors getting an altogether - unpleasant welcome  which would not help bring  other isitors here.  .George Hunter discussing ?  marine .holiday traffic said that  -there were times over good  weather weekends when he  has counted 100 boats in Gambi  er harbor areas. Many of these  .could be attracted to Gibsons  with proper facilities, he said.  It was also decided to write  the minister of highways in  Victoria to have public works  done, mainly rdadwork, during the present unemployment  situation.  u  nusua  ih!  m  There will be a free showing, Friday, 7:30 p.m. in the  Gibsons Fire Hall and the public is cordially invited by the  Elphinstone Aero Club to see  the sensational' meteorology  film "The Unchained Goddess"  recently televised in Canada  and the U.S. and acclaimed as  the greatest film ever made of  this type... ....  Tremendous hurricanes, tornadoes, thunderstorms in the  making are scenes you will not  forget. Close-up shots of nature  on the rampage, the raw, un  leashed fury of the elements,  against which man has marshalled knowledge and forces  in a determined effort to understand and control are an essential part of the picture.  HERE IS A scene in all its  natural beauty taken at the  Sechelt May Day festival while  the  performance  of  the May  si^uefehs^. .was ? underw^^ ^ Thet;  Tug-of-war  challenge  An open challenge tug-of-  war tourney is expected to attract quite a few teams to Gibsons for the July 1 celebration  it was announced by the Centennial committee at its last  meeting.

Answering a complaint  With regularity the complaint there is not enough Sechelt,  Gibsons or Pender Harbour news in the Coast News keeps crop-  rping up. If it was the policy of the Coast News to keep news out  of its columns, it would-be prepared to take the blame. However  that is not the policy therefore the blame rests elsewhere.^  Perhaps some simple arithmetic might clarify the situation. In Gibsons there are about 40 organizations who at various  times have some newsworthy event. In Sechelt there could be  [about 30, in Pender Harbour area and points on the way there  could be another 20. This means about 90 organizations.  Now if there is any person willing to step forward and  keep tab on these organizations, tackle the general editorial work  keep an eye on advertising, run off job printing that should have  been ordered two weeks ago, keep everybody happy and in the  evenings take in major public meetings, ,and when there is time  relax and do some reading to keep up 'with things, then that person can get a job with a weekly paper and command a good salary.  People like that just do not exist. So "with circumstances  being what they are the only remark the editor can pass along  to those individuals who maintain there is not enough news about  Gibsons, Sechelt or any other place, just sit down, pen the item  you have in mind and try and correct the situation yourself.  Please do not phone items in. There is .more than one reason for that, one is a limited staff and two, the definite possibility of wrong name spelling occurring. It is bad enough striving to decipher some copy without having bad phonetics adding  to the general chaos. Another thing to remember, please be brief.  Organizaions have the same right to send in news. If  you prefer to have it handled through your district correspondent, please do so but get it in to the Coast News, then if it is left  out, complain ��� but not until then.  We are part of it  In front of our home over the holiday weekend there passed a never-ending stream of water traffic all bound for vacation spots along this wonderful Sunshine Coast of ours.  "Tis a satisfying feeling to observe visitors and tourists  thronging to the district and say to ourselves "they come to visit but we are part of it."  And that sense of being part of the Sunshine Coast grows  twith us daily. Not quite three- years ago we arrived here and  decided that our quest for a permanent landing spot was over.  Since then our roots have been sunk and go deeper as time  dgoes on. Our home is taking on a gay appearance, dressed in new  igarb of brilliant yellow and flaming red paint ��� not a color  .scheme one would choose in tne city but-one eminently suitable  ���to reflect the exuberanc pf life oh the Sunshine Coast.  Thie'battle with the'blackberries is slowly being won. In  one corner we have uncovereid a healthy holly tree, its green  spiked?leiaves now glistening in the sun.  Here and there we have found a neglected rose bush  which, with a little coaxing and tender care thrives in budding  splendor.  So many, things remain to^be done one waits with impatience for the dawn of the new day. Such, however, is the diversity of pur tasks that work on one project can be left for the time  being while another is tackled with ��� renewed zest.  No longer do we ^et the impulse that we must "get away  tfor a change" as was the habit in the city. Here oh the Sunshine  Coast there is everything one needs for a happy life. Blue water,  unexcelled scenery and above all, wonderful people.  But it is not sufficient that we residents here are satisfied  with our good fortune. Let's, let the World know about us. At every opportunity, we should exert ourselves to "Boost the Sunshine Coast."

LETTERS Driver training for teachers  to editor  Editor: Monday, May 19, was  a delighful holiday, with good  weather and various means for  enjoyment provided, including  a very commendable parade at  Sechelt.  This parade was arranged with  much work and fore thought and  the least we the onlooker could  do would be to show our enthusiasm and appreciation with  a good old fashioned hand clap.  Perhaps the people feel that the  simple fact of their being there  is enough, not so. Come on folks,  loosen up and let them know  you enjoy it.  Applaud ��� The lack of it is  deplorable.  An Onlooker.  Editor: Sports day at Gibsons Elementary school, Friday May 16 appeared to be a  success in many. ways. Tlie  children were a well mannered  well disciplined group that  showed good sportsmanship,  and helped clean *' up the  grounds.  This no doubt could only be  accomplished through the efforts of a teaching staff who  in the greater part worked together over a period of years.  They are a credit to any com1  munity and the teaching staff  ment, because they can be  must be proud of this achieve-  largely responsible for the success or failure in making good  citizens of these children.  If this spirit of guidance; is  exercised through higher  grades I feel sure that discipline will come haturaliy and  learning will be foremost in  the child's mind.

Newman  May 24, 1958, marks the  24th anniversary of the Roberts Creek Community Hall.  To most people it may seem  like an old shoe that has always been around, useful and  handy, but to many it stands  as the concrete fruit of honest  toil and sweat, the enduring  evidence of faith in the community, of hope, of unselfish  effort and co-operation.  It was something over 26  years ago that a small group  of residents got together to  discuss ways and means of  building a hall. It was necessary, they thought, for a community to have a hall, both for  adult and for young folks'  games and activities.  The task of getting such a-  building seemed an impossibility. In those days there were  no big payrolls in these parts  and such wages as were paid  were small. However the importance of finding a play room  for their children was vital,  and in 1931 the work of collecting donations for the hall  was begun.  This soon proved to be a  hopeless enterprise, too vast  for such a small group, too  costly for their slim purses,  and the money that had been  collected was returned to the  donors.  In the months that followed  it became increasingly apparent that the need of a hall still  existed, and once again, in  3 932, mothers and fathers,  with their trust in the future,  a determined gleam in the eye,  rolled up their sleeves ar.d  started an enthusiastic cam-  ipagn for a Community Hall.  To raise money there were  many parties and dances held  in each of the two schools. The  price of admission was small,  the music was free and the  sumptuous suppers were supplied by the ladies. Although  the promotion of the hall fund  was the primary reason for the  fun, the spirit of friendship  and co-operation which prevailed was important too.  Door to door canvassing became the order of the day, and  donations came in from near  and f ar..  Land for the hall was donated by the late John Roberts,  and the Farmers' Institute became a board of trustees for  the building.  It has been felt by many that  the   location   is   poor,  but, 26  years ago it was the most central site. Few families, perhaps  half   a   dozen,   lived   on   the  Lower Rd. (with the exception  of  summer   campers) and.  the  two   school   districts   supplied  the main populace. Also it was  more easily accessible to guests  from Gibsons and up the coast.  With the   land donated, the  little    community    became    a  hive, of   industry,   many   residents of Wilson Creek also taking an active part. Hardly an  able-bodied    man    refused    to  help   in  one way or   another.  Not   a   vehicle   that   was  not  pressed   mto  service   in   some  capacity.   It   was  hot unusual  to see a touring car drive up  with  building  supplies,   nor a  rider on horseback with a bag  of nails.

Everybody and every  nickel were pressed into service; even a small dog owned  by Fred Barnes felt it his duty  to put in a daily appearance at  the hall, following his master  back and forth, and actually  climbing half way up a ladder .  while Fred worked aloft.  At last the great day came  when the hall, completed, was  officially opened, and on the  24th of May, 1934, a dance was  held, the building crowded  with well-wishers from neav  and far, all the young fry from  miles around, and the happy,,  albeit weary, perpetrators of  the project.  ' One hundred forty dollars  was taken in that day. The music was supplied by Mrs. Hors-  England, and Elsie? Steinbrun-  ner. Tables sagged with the  ley and W. Mariow, now in  weight of edibles supplied, by  the ladies. Everybody and' his  dog was present and festivities .  were   prolonged   far   into  the  morning hours-  Admission   to   the   hall   in'  those early days was  25c for  men  and  cake  or  sandwiches  for the women.  Music,   when  not donated, was supplied for  $1  an  hour.  The  purpose for  dances   and  parties  was  companionship and fun. fop, Mom  and  the kids,  perhaps  including an infant who slept wrapped in a coat on a bench, and  the pup, all put in an appear- *  ance  at  the   start   and  stayed  . right through to the home  waltz with never a dull moment in between.  Tne   hall   prospered   and   it  wa not long before a  kitchen  was added,   this   also   erected,,  by voluntary labor.  In 194b the hall board, with  considerable help from the  Players' Club, built a good sized stage, which was used for  the first time on May 27, 1944.  Early in 1950 the deed to the  . hall was taken over by an incorporated Roberts Creek Com  munity Hall Board under the  Society Act with Mrs. R.  Hughes   as its first  president,  and Mr. R. Cumming and Mr.  W.F. Merrick as vice-president  and secretary & respectively.  February 27 was the date of  the first general meeting.  Now, in 1958, the hall is a  part of the Roberts Creek  Community Association * and  will be run by a .committee,  xeporting to the Association at  monthly meetings.  Great admiration should be  felt for all the Hall Boards who  have handled the affairs of the  Hall. The task has been difficult, the hall's needs many,  and the capitol with which to  work at times nil. In spite of  all the set-backs, and troubles,  a strong, substantial hall, in  good repair stands ready to  serve the community after 24  years of faithful service.  Before retiring from the hospital, Dr Van Coller was honored when he was presented  'with a walking stick by a large  gathering of natives and was  told in their native tongue that  it was customary when a Chief  of Tribe walks out of public  life he is presented with a carved cane to help him in his old  age.  Dr. and Mrs. Van Coller expect to holiday in Pender Harbour until July when they -will  leave to see the Calgary Stampede and visit interesting places in Canada. They leave Canada early in August for home.  Gibsons Social Welfare Club  Legion   Hall 8 p.m- - TUESDAY,  JUNE  3  Visitors  come  from S. Africa  Dr. and Mrs. Frederick A.

Johnston left Vancouver Wednesday for Scotland via the Panama. Two sisters and a brother await her  arrival there.  Funeral services for Mrs.  Mary Town were held iri Vancouver on May 22, Ven. Archdeacon H.J. Greig officiating.  Mrs. Town was a frequent visitor to her sister, Mrs. Ruth  Mitchell.  Doug Warn came from Vancouver in his own boat last  weekend and was a guest at  the Galliford's. Fishing was  good and he and his passenger  arrived with four large salmon. ��  Guests of Mrs. Ruth Mitchell  are her sister, Mrs. M.H. Bell  of Seattle, Mrs. F. Silverthorne  Seattle, and Mrs. E. Steen of  Santa*' Barbara, Cal., who has  been attending a public health  convention in Vancouver.  iMrs. E.J. Shaw, is at home  and recuperating following surgery for blood poisoning.  A recent wedding of local  interest was that of Miss Edith  MaiEheson and John Shields,  both of Vancouver. John has  spent much time at the Creek,  first as a visitor to his aunt  and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Joe  Klein, and for the last several  years at the summer home of  bis parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.  Shields. The young couple will  make their home in North  Vancouver.  Mr. and Mrs. Bill Boyte and  children of North Vancouver  spent the weekend with Mr.  and Mrs? Syd Boyte. N ���/  Roberts Creek School held  its annual Sports Day Friday  with a large attendance of children and parents. The usual  events took place and winners  of all races will compete in  the inter-school sports later on.  Free pop was distributed to the  youngsters, gift of Alex Anderson, popular bus driver.  By  BETTE  LUMSDEN  A holiday atmosphere prevailed in Sechelt, when the huge  mural-covered Centennial Historic Caravan rolled into Sechelt  and Gibsons.  < Dave Hickeling, whose home  is in Edmonton, now of the Provincial Archives in Victoria,  built and decorated the interior  of the van. The cheery yellow  padding,   the   shiny   glass  cases  Police Court  In Magistrate Johnston's Court  Harold Frederick Fearn,'" Gibsons, was charged with having  operated a motorcycle while his  license was under suspension:  using license plates issued for  another motorcycle; failing to  tstop at.-Jt.op sign at Gibsons. C.  S. Fleming, barrister, Vancouver,  appeared for the accused who  was found guilty on all three  charges and fined a total of $40  and costs.  Wolfgang Fuhrmen, Gibsons,  paid $10 for illegal parking of  truck near  Granthams.  Mrs. Doris Rusk, Roberts  Creek, was fined $30 for driving*  without due care and attention.  It  cost   Olaf  Larson, Vancouver, $10 for carrying a .22 rifle  without having a permit. ,  The fact thaifc William Tinker,  Gibsons, was driving with an expired driver's license cost him  $10.  Bruce Fletcher, Vancouver,  parked on the wrong side of  Marine Drive, Gibsons, and was  'wined $5.  Harvey   Mellors,   Burnaby.  Ernest    Mainwaring   and   Leon  .Arthur,  both  of   Gibsons,   were  each fined $25 for speeding.  and meticulous placing of the  relics spoke of a deep interest  and love for his work. Each  article was placed 'to best advantage and labeled plainly  alongside its fellows.   **  The historical relics were displayed in three categories. The  Provincial Northwest Library  contained newspapers and documents from as early as June 25,  1858, preserved in almost perfect condition. The wording of  some of the advertisements in  many of the papers caused delighted amusement as the line  of spectators wormed by.  One adconscious dentist gave  a blow by blow description of  the actual removal of the teeth,  and replacement with plates, in  minute detail enough to scare  off the most hardy pioneer, or  miner. It is entirely possible the  poor fellow turned to another  line of endeavor, wondering why  the public of those early days  preferred to suffer the tortures  of toothache, raither than risk,  his ministrations.  The first Directory of Victoria,  printed in 1860. lay in. state in  one of the glass showcases; a  glossy print of the first printing  press, still in use; a picture of  John Robson, first editor of B.C.  and many other documents and  newspapers occupied one corner  of the van.  Ihe Provincial Museum of  Natural History and Anthropology displayed samples of carving, metal work, beadwork and  pelts as samples of work done  by Northwest Coast Tribes. Some  of the tribes mentioned were the  ' H a i d a, Tsimshian, Kwakuitl,  Shuswap, Chilcotin, Tahltan,  Thompson, Kootney and Quami-  chan.  The Provincial Archives (a  systematic record of past events \  featured early maps depicting  the journeys of the first explor-  .ers, and some of their false notions regarding the terrain in.  British Columbia on the wesi  side of the Rocky mountains.  Other interesting relics, far  too numerous to mention, attracted the crowd which poured  through the door. Many people  returned frequently for a closer  inspection. An estimate of two  or three huaidred visitors would  be moderate.  Mr. Q. Russell, principal of  Sechelt Elementary, brought tho  school children down by class,  as their social studies tied in  with the display. The films  shown in the Legion Hall were  intensely interesting, and featured! industry and arts, as well as  a travelogue of the province  Dave Walker was kept busy taking candid shots of the interior  of   the  caravan,   including  visi  tors Magistrate and Commissioner, Mr. and Mrs. Andrew  Johnston, Captain and Mrs. S.  Dawe. Jim Parker  stepped  into  the breach when a power supply  was not easily available. He allowed the equipment to be serviced from his house.  If you took the advice of Burglar Bill, you'd keep all your  valuables at home. Under the mattress, maybe. Or in that old  teapot which lost its spout.  But Bill's advice isn't entirely objective. He figures if you  leave your valuables at home ��� even in a "safe" hiding place  ��� he stands a better chance of getting his hands on them.  Much better advice comes from Ted Henniker, manager  of the Gibsons branch of the Bank of Montreal. "Keep your valuables really safe in a B of M safety deposit box," says Mr. Henniker. "Your personal strong box, exclusively yours, costs less  than two cents a day, and it pays for itself over and over again  in peace of mind alone," lie adds.  Hundreds of thousands of Canadians use B of M safely  deposit box facilities. Their valuables ��� bonds, leases, stock certificates, insurance policies, deeds, birth certificates, passports  and other important family papers ��� are safe and sound behind  the steel doors of the B of M vault.  Forget what Burglar Bill says. Mr. Henniker says, "Clean  out those closets, drawers ��� and teapots. Bring your valuables  into the bank instead."  mr^tWWn*minik~'ihttfM  NEW GAY-FLITE  Casual Canvas Shoes in a wide assortment  of styles and colojrs for GIRLS and LADIES  "CANADIAN"  RUNNING SHOES  Boy's ..... $2.95 Men's .1... $3.45  Power Outage  JUNE 4 ���8 a.m. to 11a.m.  Affecting the Madeira Park area including Pender Harbour Hotel.

For three weeks  the north wind has been shredding the Union Jack over the  castle, but today there was a  decided change, and a fine sunny day made Edinburgh look  benign. My wife has been making up her diary for the benefit of her W.A., and as we are  leaving this city in a few days  for Orkney, I thought I  too could write a few notes on  things which have interested  cme,.  * First, on Princess Street. It  is a mile long, and the sidewalk in front of the stores is  about 17 feet wide, the roadway is about 75 feet wide, and  the sidewalk on the garden  side is 12 feet. Then comes a  down slope of 20 feet filled  with crimson and yellow wall-  GARDEN  SAWDUST  SAWDUST  CALL  Duff's Fuel  SECHELT   78J  flower, solid, down to a half-  mile- promenade, then more  gardens.  Half-way along this promenade is the American memorial  to the Scottish soldiers, the  ���young kilted figure looking into the distance, and -at the east  end, just below the promenade  is "the memorial to the Royal  (Scots. I'd never heard of it before, but I have been down to  have several studies of it.  It is semicircular, with panels,, cut in stone by several  sculptors, showing the Royal  Scots in their uniforms from  1600 onwards. .Along the base  ,of the semicircle runs the record of their service all over  (the world and along the top  iare graven these words ''It is  not for glory, nor riches, neither is it for honor that we fight  but it is for the sake of liberty alone, which no true man  loseth but at the cost of his  Uifo." Given at Arbroath by  the Barons, Free Tenants and  the whole community of the  Kingdom of Scotland in the  year 1320.  Yesterday there were few  people in the gardens, today  there were hundreds. There are  no "Keep of the grass" signs,  and there is no litter, in fact  there is no litter on Edinburgh  streets, the people paying heed  to the signs on the waste-baskets: "The amenity of this cit;y  is in your hands."

I have been to a Scottish  bank and a Scottish law office.  Before we came here I _sked  my wife the address of the  bank where she had dealt in  Edinburgh. It was a small  branch in the very old part of  the city. I had our money sent  there from Gibsons, and when  we turned up, the manager  thought it had been a mistake,  but when we explained that  my wife had her account there'  wnen she was a very small,  child, all the staff were very  pleased.  This branch was once tlee  (Edinburgh office of the City  of Glasgow Bank.which failed  100 years ago, quite a small  building, very stately and dignified. The accountant told me  that the ceiling and fireplace  were by Adams and were often  visited by architects. I wasn't  going to let my side down, so  I said that I didn't know who  had done the interior of our  bank at-Gibsons, but the exterior was by Cattanach.  There are two kinds of buses  in Edinburgh. First there are  ithe city buses, which run to  the city limits, two-decker Ley-  land diesels, maroon, with  white trim, fares, by stages,  from 3d to 6d, fast and comfortable and lots of them.  Next are the Scottish Motor  Transport buses, green with  scream trim, which handle traf- *  fie to the nearby places, 15-30  miles mostly on a 20-30 minute  service. We have taken these  for an afternoon or evening  ride and have been all over the  country. Then there are- the  day-tour buses, also S.M.T. single decker and very comfortable.  We were well over 100 miles  yesterday on a look-see to  Loch Katrine, up through Ster-  ing and through the Trossachs,  through a very pleasant farming countryside, quite level for  a long way then you turn roun_  a hill and find yourself in the  Highlands, just like climbing  up from Calgary on the way to  the Coast, when you turn a corner and you are in the foothills  I forgot to describe a Scots  lawyer's office? I thought I'd  like to meet the gentleman who  had been conducting, affairs  forme, so Mary and I located  'his...office, on .;<a: -stately street,  (formerly residential, near the  West end of 'Princess Street,  land we went.in, and were con-  lucted upstairs to" his office,  where We introduced ourselves  and were received with the utmost dignity amid surroundings which were exactly those  of those old engravings like  "The New Will." When I think  of the very casual and light-  hearted atmosphere of the Totem Realty, it seems hard to  believe that my Scots legal adviser and I belong to the same  profession.  (��957)   Ltd.
