The kind of Bingo they  play' at the School Hall Thursday night in aid of Gibsons  area Welfare Fund is streamlined andf air-conditioned to a  point. The four-corner competition last week was almost  won but it remained to be taken, it is hoped, this -week.  Playing coach Jack Wiren  took- it upon himself to lead  Port Mellon out of a five game  losing streak by pitching and  batting Jhe pulptowners, to a  7-5 victory over the second  place Gibsons Firemen Friday  night in Port Mellon.  It was Wiren's second start  of the year as most of the  pitching is left to. his younger  brother Rande.    '  . Jack, although in and out of  trouble all night, was really  tough -when he had to be. He  set the losers down in order  once, the ninth, but 11 Firemen were left high and dry on  the bases which is proof  enough of his clutch pitching.  . Jack also ended his hitting  slump going two for four .including:; -a. bas^s ^empty home  run in the fourth inning.  '".-', Norm ltfckay. suffered th$'  loss although lie was the vic-s  tim of some? loose, play in the  field and poor base running  by his own team mates.

GARDEN CLUB  Gibsons Garden Club will  hold its regular meeting July  22 at 2 p.m. in Mrs. Mainwftr-  ing's garden.  B.C. Telephone Qompany has  purchased property in Madeira  Park for the site of its new  Pender Harbour automatic exchange building. The property  has a frontage of 50 feet and  is located at the junction of the  main highway and the Madeira Park road a short distance  south of the present telephone  building.  Construction of the new  building, 18 feet by 22 feet,  is scheduled to begin in July  and should be completed b3r  September. Between then and  January ��� the month slated  for the switchover ��� activity  will concentrate on the rerouting of wire and cable into  the new office, and on the installation of the automatic  switching unit.   .  Speaking of  the  company's  plans for.the area, B.F. Abram,  B.C. Telephone Company district commercial manager,  said, "At present there are just  over 170 telephones in the  Pender Harbour exchange;  with a view to the continuing  expansion of the area the equip  ment to be installed in our new  office is designed with a capacity of more than twice this  number-  "An interesting feature of  the new system will be -two-  letter-five-figure numbering',"  went on Mr. Abram. "This  type of numbering, which is  rapidly becoming universal  throughout the North American continent, is the first step  ���towards the time when Pender  Harbour subscribers will be  able to dial their own l^ig distance-calls to anywhere in Canada or the United States.  The Plan calls for the identification of each exchaftge by  its own individual designation.  In our. choice of designations  we are restricted to those con-"  tained ih. a master list made up  of words easily enunciated and  -understood, and whose first  two letters "correspond to. a  * pre-determined combination on  the telephone dial.  "In the case of Pender Harbour the designation will be  Turner 3. Effective next January, all 'Pender Harbour  phones will be assigned four  figures prefixed by this designation. k  "When dialing a local number it will be necessary first to  dial the initial two letters, TU,  of the prefix, then the 3, and  finally the particular number  being called, "concluded Mr.  Abram.  A cavalcade of private cars  and one bus load of members  of the Sechelt branch Canadian  Legion Joined with a like number from Gibsons and Roberts  Creek aUfcerided the Zone meeting under chairmanship of Mr.  Fred Claydon at Powell River.  It was the biggest turn ouifc of-  Legionaires ever seen on the  Peninsula and a most wonderful  time followed. ���'.  Guests of honor were Bob TMc-  Nichol, provincial president; Mrs!  Dorothy McLennan, provincial  secretary;  and Mrs.   E.   Morley,?  Peter Trappitt conducted an  impressive ceremony. The color  par'i-y from Sechelt was made up  of Gordon Kennedy? Lloyd  Brackett and Bob Quigley, Alice  Batchelor, Dorothy Browning  and Elizabeth Weaver.  Lunch was served in ithe Cocktail lounge at Alexander House  on arrival and in the; evening  a banquet filled Moose Hall.  Many members made the tour  of the Powell River Mill and arrived home about mid-night after  a day long to be remembered.  Witnesses  off  to New York  About 30 Jehovah's Witnesses  from Sccneit congregation will  attend an international convention in New York city July 27  to Aug__L 3.  J.

VANDALS ACTIVE  A recurrence of the increasing,  vandalism   took  place  over the  past weekend when an orgy  of.  egg-thrwing was indulged in  by  irresponsible delinquents.  The front of the John Wood  Hardware store was liberally bespattered with egys and Ken  Watson found his car in similar  condition- At the wharf, the vandals had continued their nefarious activities and owners of  several boats found themselves  with a cleaning job on then-  hands.

From berries to morons  It is mid-July with strawberries pretty well over, raspberries in crop and blackberries ripening fast in this summer  heat- The general picture in British Columbia is quiet politically  but somewhat hectic in some quarters with Princess Margaret as  the centre of attraction. She should be allowed to enjoy most of  her stay here undisturbed even by topmost officialdom. However  such will not be the case.  Nationally wo are headed towards August dog days with  Ottawa's House'of Common settling down for its hot weather  grind.  Internationally aspirations of certain people are causing  concern in the Near East. The Mediterranean area continues to  be a hotbed of intrigue leading to action not under the heading  Of peaceful intentions.  It was in the mind of the writer that we should have the  world's trouble-makers sent to the Sunshine Coast for a period  where they could recover from their peculiar type of madness  and settle down to become quieter citizens but this cannot be  done because of certain local actions, small in themselves but  indicative of a spirit not in keeping with the Sunshine Coast way  of life. .    "  There are^ individuals who no doubt have respectable par-  ents bui who with a sadistic turn of mind cannot let things be as  they are. They must in their egotistical way leave their mark, a  mark which only a moronic mind can conceive,.  ;" If one cares to view the spattering of broken eggs on store  fronts in vicinity of the post office as something worthy of the  intelligent citizens our educational system can produce there is  something wrong with those minds. No psychology is needed for  reasons to define why the action occurred. Neither should psychologists be called on to explain why many tires have been left  without air during the last week pr so. What really is required  are vigilantes armed with rubber hose of fairly substantial proportions to inflict sufficient punishment to make such depredations unprofitable. ���������-������,  It is notian easy matter to make such a decision because,  what could- be* termed complications might result. However, a  show of force often has its effect. How to do it? Well, a spotter  could be placed in some store where there would be a telephone  and he could phone to vigilantes, enabling them to swoop down  on tiie culprits. A couple of'episodes of this nature would undoubtedly have an effect? P^acfe is wonderful but we do not seem  to have too much of itIn tH_>?world today. :'". "'??"?'*  A POINT OF VIEW  In an African tribal system, vegetables were'not regarded  as food for men, but for women, Dr. W.F. NkomO, native member  of the executive! of the.SoUlh.--fri$an'1xi^  is reported tp have said in Johannesburg at,'the annual general  meeting of the. African Children's Feeding Scheme. If there was  little meat available, it went to the men. Tuberculosis they believed to be caused by a bird in their chests which caused them  to cough when it fluttered. It was pointless to prescribe treatment  or isolation for them. They believed that when, the bird flew  away they would be cured.  One can only wonder what these people do about butterflies in the stomach.  Softball started in Canada  Claims that softball originated  in Canada do not agree with  American records^but the 150,000  Canadians who play the game today can claim the first official  organization of softball competition ,and' can take credit for enthusiastic adoption of the game  in Holland.; .  According to the new Encyclopedia Canadiana, a version of  the /game was played in Hamilton- in- 1898, one year after  softbaU ^"was ' &trbd_ced in tho  United States. In 1923 the Ontario Amateur Softball Association was formed and placed  competition on a province-wide  basis. From this start the game  developed as it is played today  on an organized basis in the  Ajniecricas and in, many other sections of the world.  1 As-one example; the 0--utadian  Army: introduced ��� softball to the  Netherlands during: the Second  World, War- and .the: ^Netherlands  Basebasl Association requested  a-uT secured the right to publish  the official OASAA rules in 1946.  Softball devolved from its  early "indoor baseball" form  tfith many changes of name: indoor ? bail, ihdooiNoutdoor ball,  niushball, playground ball, diamond ball, kitten ball, recreation  Ml. lightning baseball, _nd fastball. "Fastball", in fact, is the  most modern term, though the official name remains softball and  is so recognized by most governing bodies.  The game moved out of doors  ki 1998 with the first outdoor  league   playing   at   Burlington  Beach, Ontario.. A public-school  league was formed in Hamilton,  Ontario, in 1910 and from this  league came many of the leaders  who helped to spread the Ontario  plan of organization. By 1914,  for instance, there was an official  city softball league playing in  Edmonton. /  A Canadian Softball Association was formed in 1932, following a meeting of the Amateur  Athletic Union *of Ganada.^n:  1944, a Western Canada Softball''A  Association was organized/. Five  years later, through a meeting  at Winnipeg of the officers of  the Ontario Association and the  Western Canada- Association, the  Canadian Softball Asociation at  last became active. Its official  constitntiooi was apprved at annual meetings in. 1950, at.Owen  Sound, Ontario, and in 1951, at  Brantford, Ontario.  Ocatafio, with -36,000 . player*  registered in 17 competing series;-  tops the list. Brtish Columbia is  a close second, with five Senior  A leagues and other groups in.  almost every city and town.  In 1950, Canada joined with .  the United States and Mexico to  form, an International Softball  Federation. This has developed  into an organization with ten  members representing as many  countries.  * Here is a Red Cross Water  Safety reminder.

FOR AUTOS AND TRAILERS  New regulations pursuant to  .the Motor Vehicle act were approved recently by order-in-couit-  uil. The new regulations became  effective July 1 and bring up to  date equipment requirements lor  motor vehicles and trailers.  The regulations follow the  principle of uniform legislation  for vehicle equipment, and vehicles equipped in accordance  with these regulations will not  run into problems' of conflict  with the laws pf-other provinces  and states.  The following are some factors  in the new regulations of which  knowledge is necessary if motor-  isits are to be in a position to  comply with  the new  law:  1. A driver following another  motor vehicle at night is required to dim the head lamps within  500,; ft. of the vehicle he is following.  2. It will be illegal to drive;  a'  car   later thaa one:half hour'  after sunset by using only  the  parking    lamps.    Lighted    head  lamps will be necessary.  3. A tail light and licence  plate. are necessary for trailers  and all trailers must have a red  reflector mounted ,oh the rear.  4. A trailer ' having a gross  vehicle weight (weight of vehicle  and load) in excess of 1500 lbs.,  SAME NIGHT  or if the gross vehicle weight  exceeds one-half the weight of  the towing vehicle, whichever is  the lesser, then the trailer must  be equipped with service brakes,  applicable by he driver of the  tewing vehicle.  5. The maximum height of  turn signal lamps is now limited  to 60 inches. 'Owners of vehicles  with lamps f this type mounted  on the vehicle roof will have to  ml_ke the dhange. The reason  for this condition is to eliminate  a confusion, which has existed in  the misunderstanding by the motorists of turn signal lights  thinking them to be flashing  lights on emergency vehicles.  6. Side reflectors are necessary for vehicles, trucks, tow cars  and trailers of 80 inches in over  all width..

A new set of brake .regulations for commercial trailers of  over 3000 lbs. and for buses,  trucks and truck tractors of 6000  lbs. comes into effect on April  1/59.  8. The length of draw bar or  other connections between a motor vehicle and the vehicle it is  towing is limited to 15 ft.  9. A person who is engaged  in the business of selling new or  used trailers for use on the highway is prohibited from selling  the vehicle unless it is equipped  with lights, brakes and other  I^ciors as set ouit in the regulations.
