CALF BORN ON FERRY  Black Ball ferry Bainbridge  with Capt. Thomas in command and John Bunyan, mate,  was the scene ^ of a blessed  event Monday.' Some cattle  were being shipped to a point  on the Sunshine Coast and on  the way over a shorthorn gave  birth to a calf.  ow women'sdressesmeasure 50 and up  ERIC THOMSON  SAYS IN LETTER  Mr. and Mrs..Thomson left  recently on a trip to Scotland.  Scotland, for us, began at St.  John', New Brunswick We sailed on the "Lismoria" direct to  Glasgow. This ship is a Liberty  _hip built in Tacom'a, I think,  of about 8500 tons gross, rebuilt by Barclay, Curie and Co.  Ltd, Glasgow for 50 passen-.  gers and freight.  Looking back at the trip, I  have come to the conclusion  that the Lismoria is one of  their good things that the Scots.  keep to' themselves, for the  officara and crew are alLScots  as are the meals and appointments. In fact she is a "happy  ship" and by the next day after  we sailed everyone was on easy  terms.  We had several days? bad  weather and bruises to show  for it but no one missed many  meals. It was misty when we  entered the mouth of the Clyde  but we could sec both shores.  The only place that I recognized was Dunoon, as the little  towns have extended along the  shore   to   maks   a   continuous  waterfront settlement, the  same as on West Howe Sound.  We had to come up the river  into Glasgow after dark, on account of the tide, so the shipbuilding yards were but shadows. We left the ship next  morning, and the landing and  customs inspections were 'nominal. My sister had given us  the name of the hotel where  she stayed when she was working over here, and we have  been intrigued at the sight of  kilted Scotsmen arriving and  departing, gentlemen who  wear the kilt all the time.  After we got settled, we took  a walk up one side of Sauehie-  hall Street and down the other,  and it was as good as a show,  to see the different shops and  hear the Glasgow speech.  That afternoon we took a  Igus to Ayr, crossing the Prest-  *wick runway, and the next dav  .we took another bus down the  Clyde to Helensburgh, passing  through the Clydebank area  where the blitz took place.  Hundreds of new houses and  blocks of tenements have been  built to replace those that were  destroyed, but the scars of  that terrible visitation are still  plain to see.  One thing that struck us in  both these towns was the preservation, of the waterfront for  public pleasure, miles of it  landscaped, with access all  along to the beach, something  that West Howe Sound now  has .only in small extent at  Hopkins.  The conditions of life and  comfort here are so very much  better than reported that I  would like to give you some  particulars. It was an eye-  opener, that preliminary stroll  on Sauchiehall Street.  The shops are different from  those in.Vancouver. Instead of  huge stores like the H.B. Co.  and Eatons and supermarkets,  there are miles and miles "of  small shops, each to its own  line. The butchers' shops are  well stocked, the bakers' shops  make my mouth water, the  clothing shops have a display  equal to anything in Vancouver, for men and for women.  I must pause for a moment  to tell you that in quite a num  ber of the ladies, wear shops  they have a curious symbol  on the dresses on display: "50  and up*' and that is the hip  measurement, and as the Glasgow ladies, by and large, are  not so tall as ours, they must  expand in the other direction.  There are many excellent  places to eat in Glasgow, they  call them tea-rooms." It * seems  to be the custom to have "High  Tea," which to us represents a  substantial dinner, but these  places close quite early and apparently are not open on Sundays or holidays.  Speaking of holidays, yesterday was Good Friday, but  apart from the banks closing  in the afternoon, absolutely no  notice was taken of it, but  from notices displayed on nearly every business premises on  Easter Monday everything is to  be closed down tight.  As to prices of things, the  essentials of life, meat, bacon,  butter and so on are quite a bit  cheaper than with us, clothing  seems about the same, boots  and shoes, men's and wome*a'sv  name for name, cheaper, trans-^  portation much cheaper, vegetables about the same and fruit  from such a variety of far-  off places* I think cheaper. And  there simply isn't any austerity, and hasn't been for a long  time.  As to drinks, spirits cost  about the same as with us,  beer and stout are 18 cents a  bottle which fills a fair-sized  glass and of ssound .strength and  quality. I am continuing research into the consumption of  malt drinks, and the Glasgow  men like theirs dark and  strong, even the beer is distinctly dark.  They have a curious way of  dealing with tea, it runs 5d. a  cup but one can get a pot of  tea and enough boiling water  to keep going for a long time  for a shilling. The water, from  Loch Katrine, is as good as  Vancouver. There is only one  word for the coffee and that is  "ierrible."  (To be continued) 2    Coast News, May-8, 1958.

Geese and super-markets  If you have not examined a copy of the newly published  "British Columbia, a Centennial Anthology," do so at first oppor-  unity. It is published by McClelland and Stewart with Reginald  Eyre Watters as editor-in-chief.  Somewhere we read on anthologies that the endeavour to  indicate public feeling by favorite pieces would be like carrying  a sample brick, as being representative of a. big city. Well the  contents of the B.C. Anthology are just about the size of the  brick, meaning British Columbia is far too massive a project to  get between the covers of any book.  Lister Sinclair in the opening eulogy has done as good a  job asi any writer could do to get British Columbia on paper.  Here is a sample: ���  "Here, the fishing boats are red- and green-eyed insects  huddled in swarms with long, antennas sensitive to salmon. There,  northward geese arehounds in the sky looming over the banks'  respectability and the supermarket's special offers."  Then as a last word he-writes: "Under the sweet rich rain,  the mountains and the sea."  There are splendid" illustrations,, half-tones, color prints,  ���wood-cuts, wood engravings and drawings all selected with an  eye not only on today but for the future..  Not having read all the contents it is not possible to vouch  for quality throughout but what has been read appear worthy  representatives of works to be included in any anthology on British Columbia, centennial edition or otherwise.  REAL ESTATE VALUES  Based on prices some people are asking for real estate  along the Sunshine Coast it would need a millionaire to erect  a suitable building on the purchased, land to make the deal one  which can be included in the field of normal economics.  The higher the price put on land the larger the building,  usually. Considering some of the prices reported on some Sunshine Coastv lots, one vwould expect numerous five or ten story  buildings to be just around the corner.  One can hear plenty of stories about early settlers having  turned down the opportunity to obtain a piece of land for a mere  song in days gone by. Now that land is on the market at some fao-  ulous price. These sitories sound intriguing but the same old-  timers have a fairly good idea of what?the?land ishould;be sold  fbr and it would"not be a fantasticprice'."  It is generally conceded the cpst^of land should not be  more than 20 percent of the cost of the building to be placed on  it, view or no view. One pays a premium for a: view but the price  placed on that view in British Columbia generally is out of line  ���with reality. *  If the sellor can convince the buyer the land to be sold is  a gold-mine, well and good but it takes an exceptional view to  make any piece of property a gold-mine. So let's keep close to.  reality and bring new people in and not frighten them away with  fabulous! pricing.  SONG  BIRDS AT PORT MELLON  There are some gifted people in Port Mellon and they are  not all experts at the mill. They are members of the distaff side  and have good singing voices. This they revealed Sunday in Gibson Memorial United church when they provided the choral side  of the morning service.  Rev. David Donaldson was the first to admit the experience of having heard the singing of the Port Mellon choir was  better than one of his sermons. This came as a high compliment  because Mr: Donaldson's sermons, if you have not had a late  breakfast, do not all put you to sleep.  Mrs. Sherman, the leader of the choir can be complimented on the quality of the choral numbers, the solo and the  duet, the latter being sung beautifully. Port Mellon should be  proud of its wives who find time to express theimselvesi vocally  in a^manner that makes them a welcome part of life along the  Sunshine Coast.  It should be noted that Port Mellon abounds with sopranos  and good ones too, while Gibsons runs to altos and no doubt,  good ones too. How about a get-together for some sort of Centennial project. Nothing could be sweeter.  THE SECRET  The three of them agreed to keep the secret* Soon the secret was available almost everywhere, so they met again to consult; how had the.news leaked out?  "Well," they at last decided, "there are just the three of  us, I and I and I ��� that makes a hundred and eleven who know  the secret." ��� The Printed Word.  Rise and fall of Social Credit  The rise and fall of Social  Credit in B.C. is discussed by  Blair Fraser in the Cenfbennial  issue of Maclean's magazine.  Fraser traces the history of tha  party back to the great depression and postwar readjustment,  to the rather naive convictions  of a few earnest, humble men  and the burning sense of evangelism which the party acquired  from William Aberhart a_d  never lost.  He goes through the astonishing record of the party during  its five-year hey-day, when it al  most seemed that Social Credit  could perform all the miracles  expected by its more devoted ad-  hererilts.  But now, the Maclean's article  states, Btennett and the Social  Credit are in serious ���trouble  from political scandal, falling  revenues, and murmurings within ithe ranks. And Fraser concludes: "At this stage, only one  thing appears certain: the bloom  is off the Social Credit. Wheher  or not it survives as a government of fallible men, as a communion of saints it. is through."  Mfr.ML-QUEToAST iS   ' ALWAYS READY FOR  TROUBLE- ���  C Hi.

Each up-coming ferry traffic  was involved from 8 a.m. Thursday to 8 p.m. Friday. The first  ferry traffic which passed our  door at-Sechelt had almost triple  'the numiber of cad; usually seen  for the early ferry on a regular  Thursday morning, however only  15 vehicles passed at this time.  By. the- end of a full Thursday approvimately 405 cars and  trucks had passed our door. Also there were 24 car top boasts  and 5 trailer boats ranging from  six to 18 ft. in length. (All cars,  ncted are definitely off-penin-  sula visitors). There were thre&  Washington Stalfce cars, one California car and one Nevada.  Friday morning at 8.30 a.m.  the first ferry traffic of this day  passed. It musti have been a full  load because over 26 cars wen^  by desfpite the ones I missed and  the large number which stopped  at other areas before reaching  Sedhelt. There were eight car  top boats out of this 26 cars I  saw and one trailer speed boat.  By 8 o'clock Friday evening a  ..total of 310 more vehicles  had  passed of which 25 were boat)  topped and two trailers. There  were ten  out of B.C. cars.  All in all there were 715 incoming visitor cars and 52 boate  behind or on top of 47 cars, some  with two boats to one car.

Sir Francis Drake in hia  Golden Hind was thought to be  the    first?   After  rounding   the  Horn in 1579, and tired of ?pitting Spaniards to the blade from  Chile   northward,  he. sought  to  return to, England by the Northwest Passage, if sujch existed.     '  Landing   north of San Francisco, he claimed that coast for  England;  New Albion he called  it. He is thought to have sailed  as far north as Vancouver Island  waters   before   returning   south,  rounding Cape of Good Hope and  Peeking home.

Alaska's Mount Ellas' on' the 60th  parallel' of  latitude. His  second  ship, cap*tained by one Chirikoif  came south and landed at Sitka-  A fur trade developed and Russian vessels were regular callers.  Spain   loftily claimed   all the  western seaboard, recalling that  in 1493, 'Pope Alerander VI had  granted the Dons half the world.  In  1774' Spain sent Juan Perez  to make sure no one  else was  trespassing.   He  was. to explore  all territory  south  of the  Russian ports.  His ship Santiago saw from  .the'.sea,'., the summit of San Chris-  tobal in'the Queen Charlokte&.  He charted Dixon Inlet and some  Alaskan shores, then coming  south passed Cape Estevan on  Vancouver Island. An attempted  landing was foiled by storm. But  Indians came out to the Santiago  to trade.  In 1775 the Santiago aiid the  Sonora, tiny ships barely 36 feet  in length and 12 feet abeam,  came north again fromMexicoo.  They stopped off on what is  now the coast of ��� Washington  and sent seven men ashore for  food and water. They landed on  ari island, once named the Isle  of Sorrows and) later Destruction  Island. The names are apt because alls seven were slaughtered  \by Indians.  This discouragement kept the  Spaniards at sea until they  reached Alaska and there a .cross  was planted at Port Bucareli.  Still no European foot ashore in  B.C.  'The search for the North-West  Passage  had  fired imaginations  in Britain's parliament. There  had been six costly expeditions,  all failures, between 1719 and  1737. Finally an act .was passed  offering 20,000 pounds to, the  one wiio found it.  Perhaps to-forestal payment,  the Admiralty sent Capt. Cook,  via Cape of Good Hope, to chart  the northern coast, March 7,  1778, he sighted and named Cape  Flattery.  The promontory "... Flattered him in coaxmg him to seek  an entrance which he could no*  make," a shipboard scribe reported. Cook passed the entrance to  the straits of Juan de Fuca, bat  closed Vancouver Islands western shores,.finally entering Nootka Sound where a month was  spent overhauling vessels.

At this point, Russia, Spain,  ffche ?American colonies and Britain ?wsre all draining furs from  tlie west coast. Spain was first  to decide to '���corner the market."  The trading out of Nootka irked  the ^Spaniards and in 1789 they  determined to establish a trading  post? at Nooftka.  -  Ah expedition went out under  command  of  Dan  Estevan Jose  Martinez and he found at Nootka. the  Boston   vessel  Columbia  and Capt. Meare's Ipiiigema. He  seized   them   and also  the new  sloop North West America when  she returned from a supply trip.  The'���Princess Royal and the Argonaut, also British, were captured  when   they   arrived , from,   the  Orient. They brought 70 Chinese  settlors   who   were   also   made  prisoner. -  The American ship and the  Iphigenia were allowed to depart; the North Wesfc America  ���was kept at Nootka. The. Argo-  sent- to Mexico.  naut   and   the   Princess   Royal  were sent to Mexico.  Events at Nootka brought the  two great nations cto the brink  of war. Fortunately, Britain was  better prepared for trouble and  Spain in a .treaty signed in 179C  dropped most of her extravagant  claims. In effect, the territory  became the property of any nation who took possession.  One   year,   later,   Britain   sent  out Capt.   George Vancouver to  accept restitutian.   He was  only  34 at the time, but a weathered  seaman.   Sailing   in   the   340-ton  Discovery,,   escoifred    by    HMS  Chatham, Vancouver didn't hurry  to   the   Spanish rendevous.  He  charted the Straits of  Juan   de  Fuica,   Puget   Sound,   Straits  of  Georgia,   Burrard    Inlet,    Howe  Coast News, May 8, 1958.    3  Sound, Jervis   Inlet  and as far  north as Queen Charlotte Sound.  Two Spaniards, met off Point  Grey, Valdez and Galiano, assist-  / ed him,  and  told him  he   was  awaite'd at Nootka by the Spanish  commandant  Bodega  Y  Quadra.  Vancouver and  Quadra  wined  and dined and named the island'  "Tlie Island of Quadra and Vancouver" but Quadra declined  to  a:cept the rulings of the Nootka  treaty. It went back for further  negotiation and Vancouver went  heme to England where he died  at age 40. It was 1794 before the  Spaniards complied and the British hoisted their colors permanently.

The decline is attributed  mainly to drop in herring values resulting from failure of  the fishermen's union and companies to agree on prices, and  consequent curtailment of herring fishing operations. During the.March '58 period 3,943  tons of herring brought a total  value ofN$130,000, as compared  with the 19,197 tons landed in  March 1957.  Total salmon landings were  valued at $26,000, half the value of the same month last year.  Troll spring landings were  . down to 83,000 pounds valued  at $22,000 as against 141,000  pounds-worth $48,000 a year  ago. This decline was largely  due to the closure of offshore  trolling this year until April  15.  On. the brighter side were  landings of grey cod totalling  1,448,000 pounds valued at  $80,000 compared with 812,-  000 pounds in 1957. Ling cod  production showed an increase  of nearly 60 percent "to 70$,-  000 pounds at prices; ranging  from 6 to 12 cents for an aggregate return of $67,000. :���'���  Although clam diggings  were down 22 percent the crab  fishery in northern areas showed an upward surge, with a total of 279,000 pounds worth  $25,000, nearly four times that  of March 1957. Shrimp fishermen also scored oyer th_ preceding year .with 23 percent  increased landings of 214,000  pounds for a total of $32,000.  AT SWISS lun6h  Mrs. M. Husby of Gibsons  arrived home April 20 from a  trip to Menroe, Wash., where  '.she visited her two daughters.
