COURTEOUS SERVICE  ;THE OLD HOME TOWN  Oirfrhmltl.thiol Ma  By STANLEY  By PAT WELSH  Oct. 12 was a red letter day  for the. 70 year-round residents  of the Redroofs, Welcome  Beach , and Seacrest areas of  Halfmoon Bay, when their Centennial . Community Hall was  officially opened.  The hall built by voluntary  labor by local youngters, ages  61 to 84, was erected on pror  per ty owned by the Welcome  Beach Community Society. It  was gay with bunting and flags  and long before the appointed  hour residents and car loads of  guests from all parts df the  Peninsula began arriving.  It presented an. attractive appearance   witiir ijs walls pine  panelled, lit by ceiling lights  covered with natural parchment shades', the deep blue of  the Centennial Flag draped behind the speaker. Masses of  flowers in lovely fall colorings  added to the scene. At one end  were tea tables, lace covered  wth tall tapers in silver holders centered with bowl�� of  pale pink anemones.  At 3 p.m. Mrs. Chris-tine  Johnston of Sechelt, accompanied by Magistrate Johnston  was welcomed by Mrs. J.  Meikle,' president of the Red-  Wel Ladies. Guild and Mr.-W.

In Pender-Harbour the fblks  Mr. Grundy outlined the  work done by the members of _  the building committee, how  they toiled hard and long, rain  or shine, with some walking  miles to and from the {building  site; spending long hours every  day on the job of clearing and  building.  All this work was voluntary.  One resident brought in his.  bulldozer and cleared the area  needed for the building. Others  contributed lumber, doors, windows, paint and stain, chairs,  articles to be raffled and another undertook to do the electric wiring. A stove for the kitchen was donated, also a heater for the hall. Donations of  money helped meet the current expenditure, the Redroofs  and Welcome Beach Recreation Commission donating the  whole of their grant for two  years to aid the hall. The Welcome Beach Garden Club raised money by selling flowers  and plants and will landscape  the grounds.  Red Wei Ladies Guild, always a hard working and enthusiastic group held Bingo  nights, raffled off various articles, held a successfud bazaar  in July. The Welcome Beach  Community Society also _ stood  whole hartedly behind the project and helped in many ways.  Mrs. M. Tinkley, secretary of  the RedWel Ladies Guild1 Also  worked hard to interest people  in helping contribute funds,  etc., for the hall.

Students climb  PtMellon mount  A group of U.B.C. students  who call themselves "The Varsity Outdoor Club" for the  second time in two years made  Port Mellon the base for their  annual "long hike."  The "long hike" is a part of  t^eir. initiation for new mem-  bejrs.

This production will be  called "Fantasy" and children ���  will be in the cast.  If there are any interested ���  residents anywhere on the Peninsula it is hoped they will  contact members of the club as  the producers have no way of  knowng the acting, dancing or  singing potential of the community.  This group, being, "strictly  amateur, does not look for perfection in the participants, but  they do enjoy rehearsing together and making new friends.  M.  (Gwen)  MacKenzie.  o��- their laurels Mr.? Grundy  said.. The work ol-the Centenr/  nial Cominxittee is finished and  he had much pleasure in handing over the deeds and keys of  the Hall 'tp Mrfe. Johnston.  Mrs. Johnston said it Was a  wonderful achievement which  showed true community spirit,  and all the more wonderful because it was undertaken by a  group of not so young people,  who didn't wait for George to  do it. ;  She then( declared the hall  open, handing over tiie deeds-  and keys to Mr. A. Young, representing the Welcome Beach  Community Society. Little Louise Rutherford presented Mrs.  Johnsjton with. a bouquet of  mauve flowers tied with gold  streamers.  Mr. Young on behalf of the  Welcome Beach Community  Society thanked Mrs. Johnston  and said the hall would fill a  long 'wanted need, as for many  years meetings had to be held  at the Redroofs hall owned by  Mr. J. Cooper, who was so generous in supplying heat and  light and conveying people to  and from the hall for all meetings. Mr. Young tendered a  special vote of thanks to Mr^T  Cooper. ,  Magstrate Johnston in a brief  speech said he hadn't met any  of the people from this area,  so laughingly concluded they  must be a law abiding community-  Mr. E Surtees,, chairman of  the Halfmoon Bay Recreation  Commission expressed admiration for the men who succeeded in the undertaking.  Tea was served by the RedWel Ladies Guild and pourers  were Mrs. Graham Ladner and  Mrs. W. Leuchte. Serviteiirs  were Mejsdames M. Tinkley, E. .  Pearce, P. White, B. McCaul,  A. Grundy, L. Bath.

The auxiliary thanks ? all friends for  many donations and actual  help at the bazaar.  Cecil Solly, well known garden commentator, and a recent visitor to iSakinaw Lodge,  donated $5 to the hospital for  a. loaf of Mrs. Cotton's homemade bread.  Members agreed to purchase  a much-needed anaesthetic machine for the hospital. This will  cost around $900 and will deplete the Auxiliary's treasury.  It is hoped, therefore, that the  next project will be a success.  This will be held Nov. 8,  which will be the Auxiliary's  21st birthday. The evening  will start with a picnic style  bean supper. Another attraction will be Hula Hoop fun and  bring your own hoop. Bingo  will round out the festivities.  Further detail�� concerning this  event will come later.  Mrs. N.

Today's membership  totals 25,000 in 31 areas from  British Columbia to northwestern Ontario.  Mr. Zukerman referred to  the Peninsula Overture Concerts association, one, of the  first of seven associations to  be formed when he said: "If  commsnities the size of Swift  Current, Sask, with a population of 11,000 can have 700  members and the Sunshine  Coast area with 5,000 population can have more than" 200  members, I can see no reason  why the Lakehead cannot easily* reach the 1,000 mark."

The problem of trailers on  a minimum of foundation becoming homes was discussed at  Tuesday night's Gibsons village commission meeting in  the Municipal Hall.  The subject was brought up  when A.O.

The problem ig. rapidly becoming, a .burning^;question in  many   municipalities,   but   so  far, how tO.h'ai-dle the situation has not been solved. Members of the commission saw  danger's in districts.. becoming  filled with homes which would  really be trailers with wheels  Off and some type of supports  ing foundation beneath them.

Guides plan  to carry on  At a Guides and Brownies  executive meeting Oct. 6 at the  home of Mrs. T. Wilson, six  members attended, making two  more than attended the September meeting.  ���A vote of thanks was given  the Coast News for its appeal  for leaders. This was, followed  by the reading of an editorial  which ran the previous week  and the effect was to fan the  weary embers of community  spirit in those present. It was  stressed by members that it  was worthwhile if a single  child" is helped to happiness  and a foundation supplied for  good citizenship.  At the last count there were  45 Brownies so it was decided  in view of the shortage of help  one Brown Owl would look after two companies with the  help of any Packies available.  It was decided a sale of  children's used clothing would  be'held as a. morning feature  with cookies and coffee'beirig  served buffet style.

Redroofs' folk happy  Redroofs area people have discovered one way to be happy. They had a provincial government Centennial grant of $42  and a desire to do something which would be of benefit to the  community. ;������.  So meetings were held, plans discussed and a project selected. It entailed the use of bulldozers, saws, hammers and.nails  assisted by the work of community organizations which raised  money for purchasing lumber and other essentials required in  building. ^      ; ���>  The men, average age about 70, put in hour-! and hours  of labor turning a virgin timber area into a lot on which something could be erected. The women, .who voluntarily decided  their ages were from "30 to 45," worked to make saleable products and gave their time to community projects to raise close to  $1,500.  Time, labor and money were all channelled towards the  achievement they set out to do ��� 'build a. community hall for  Redroofs area.  Sunday afternoon saw the official opening of the hall Li-  fore a happy crowd of close to 100 persons, happy because-they  .had achieved something by themselves with a .,$45 government  grant as a Ibeginning. The hall exuded the spi-it of :happiness  right down to the dry wood burning in the kitchen stove to heat  water for tea and coffee to go along with the sandwiches and  cake prepared by the women folk.  As one person said during the consumption of cake and  coffee "we found happiness in our own backyard." Redroofs  Community Hall should have that remark painted on one of the  walls of the hall as a reminder to others who will be visiting the  place. >���������  Our marine problem  An announcement in this issue by Hon. :Earle C; West-  wood stating the decision of the provincial government to enter  the.marine park field has been justified should.be of interest to  those persons who have an interest in development of Gibsons  harbor waterfront.  While Gibsons area cannot be considered a marine park  area- that announcement by the minister does reveal a growing  interest in the development of facilities for pleasure craft in  British Columbia. '' *  ���  The government release says there are 40,000 pleasure  boats in the lower coastal area, including Vancouver Island. A  good many of these vessels are small craft which prefer sheltered waters. That is the reason why the Howe Sound area should  Stave priority when development is considered because: craft homing in the Vancouver area are how crowding waters adjacent to  Vancouver.  This publication has advocated an extension of present  harbor facilities beyond what is planned by the federal government which has let a tender for the harbor improvements to pro-,  vide some shelter for commercial craft. It is true pleasure craft  do not operate on an all-year basis in the same manner as commercial craft but the highway we have, paved from Port Mellon  to Powell River, is used seasonally only (by the larger number of  motorists.  The greater number of craft operating in the Howe Sound  area will also mean that Gibsons should offer such craft a mooring place so summer visitors will be able to shop in Gibsons. This  means trade for local merchants. They should be behind such a  move in a definite manner.  Mainly about work  Work is an economic necessity, and has been ever since  the Garden of Eden, but it is also a psychological necessity. Not  to be occupied, and not to exist, amount to the-same thing..Sir  Alfred Roberts said at the Duke of Edinburgh's Study Conference: Work is an economc necessity, a social obligation, a basic  human right, and a means of personal fulfilment. It is, indeed,  only by the work of all hands that society survives. In the Encyclical Letter of His Holiness Pope Pius XI distributed in 1931  he remarked: "Universal experience teaches us that no nation  has even risen from want and poverty to a better and loftier station without the unremitting toil of all its citizens."  The themes of fairy tales are made of work. The prince  who rescues the princess; the courtier "who sorts out the tangled  skeins of silk of separates the colored grains of sand; the sage  who deciphers a message on a wall: all these worked for their  reward. We cannot imagine a state without work, and if there  were a place without work its people would be most unhappy.  ��� From Royal Bank October Letter.

ELECTRIC  -tSSB  About buu.OOO families anu the  r-jst Office department celebrated a special birthday on Oct. 10.  Canada's first rural route was  placed in operation on that date  in 1908, between Hamilton and  Ancaster, Ontario, introducing a  postal, service whereby dwellers-  had their mail delivered to their  homes. ���  'xhe contractor on R. R. Np- 1,  Hamilton, the official name ot  the pioneer, wended his -way for  seven miles from Hamilton to  Ancaster, Ont., and returned,  each day serving householders  along the route of travel.  When the system was introduced, it was confined to existing  stage routes, but strong claims  were made by those on other  roads with the result that by 1912  under improved regulations, all  ��� persons residing along,well defined roads over a'mile'long became eligible for piral mail delivery. Another \ advantage was  that rural route couriers were  permitted to sell postage stamps,  .'take applications and accepi  money for money orders and  pcstal notes. By November of  that year, over 25,030 boxes were  being served on 900 routes.  Over the   years,   the  number  of calls has continued to increase  and on almost all country lanes  the  horse and  buggy  has now  been replaced by an automobile.  A few hours travel by car covers  a route which required a day to  complete formerly. As happened  in the case of the original sevice,  some rural routes are the forerunners of letter carrier delivery  as Canadian cities continue to expand. In1951, in an-effort to provide   mail   service   to   isolated  groups of families on the Newfoundland   coast,   several water.,  rural routes were started. They  were   over   30   miles long and  patrons  were   served by motor  launch once a week. There were  no mail boxes involved* as patrons met the boat at the wharves  and conducted their postal business on the spot.  While not strictly speaking a  rural route, the Alaska Highway  service certainly handles mail for  country people., from the end of  steel at Dawson Creek, B. C, a  ..three day journey twice a week  brings the mailman over 900  miles to White Horse with all  surface mail for the Yukon. He ,  ,also tends the needs of eight post  offices, en route and stops at a  number of non-post office points,.  Deep dive in  bathyscaphe  The recent Franco-Japanese  joint scientific project has uncovered some of the mysteries of the Japan Deep, one of  the deepest ocean beds of the  world. From the Kuriles in  the north to near the Bonin Islands in the south, it is a  trench or canyon in the bottom of the Pacific, 34,000 feet  below the surface at its deepest point.  During two months this summer, the French Navy's under- ���  sea exploration craft, the bathyscaphe FNRS-3, on loan to  Japan, made nine dives into  the Deep. Its farthest plunge  was 10,000 feet, more than  twice as far down as the previous Pacific record made by  Americans iri 1949.  Observations made from the  bathyscaphe proved many  tilings about the floor of the  Pacific which' hitherto had  been only" hypothetical, -while  other theories about the Deep  were completely upset.  One oceanographic theory  exploded this summer was that  there were no currents at great  depths. Professor Tadayoshi  Sasaki of Tokyo Fishery College reported a sluggish, snail-  pace flow at more than 9,500  feet. This observation gave rise  to speculation that it might  not be safe to dump radioactive waste into the ocean  depths.  Professor Peres of Marseilles  University and the commandant of the b a t hy s cap he ,  Georges Houot, were astounded at the variety of marine  life, at depths of 3,000 to 6,000  feet. The Pacific ocean depths  may thereore provide a rich  new source of food for Japan  ��� a remote possibility at this  time, but not altogether a  dream in-view of steadily advancing techniques in fisheries  ��� From Japan Reports  where patrons can transact post  office business with the courier.  At White Horse two connecting  services branch off, one following the Alaska Highway to the  Alaska border ��� 300 miles ���  while the other runs over -400  miles to Dawson, Y. T.  Although the ideal rural route  is about 25 miles long, forms a  circuit and serves 100 or more  patrons, local conditions often  require certain deviations from  the perfect route. Victoria R.R.  No. 2 on Vancouver Island in  B. C. is over 90 miles; round trip;  runs daily except Sunday serving 441 boxholders and four  revenus offices. The largest number of boxholders are served on  Riviere des Prairies R.R. No. 1  in-Quebec-Province. On this 25  mile daily j ourney, over 1,100  householders are served as well  as two revenue post offices.  )To provide Canadians with  good postal facilities, the country  is divided into fourteen postal  districts in charge of district directors. Some idea of the facilities provided the rural portions  of the various Postal Districts  is given in the,following list of  routes in each,of these Districts:  Newfoundland, 5; Saint John,  N.B., 556 (includes 178 in P.E.I);  Halifax, 341; Quebec, 779; Montreal, 771; Ottawa, 715; North  Bay, 179; Toronto, 594; London,  820; Winnipeg,��160; Saskatoon,  94; Calgary, 118; Edmonton, 170  and Vancouver, 174.  In reporting to parliament this  year, the "Hon. William Hamilton,  postmaster-g e n e r a 1. indicated  that some 600,000 householders  are now served by 5,500 rural  routes and that over 37 million  miles are travelled annually' by  the>R.R. couriers. He also stated  that over 4,000 group mail boxes  now accommodate 40,000 patrons.  The group boxes are an infers,  esting development of rural ser-  vice introduced after World War  2. At one stop, a courier* may  serve 10 to 50 or more patrons  using the device of nests of boxes  erected at central points in the  borderline areas between--cities  and rural districts; The' system  is a boon particularly in new  development regions where conditions   are    not favourable   to  2    Coast News; Oct. 16,  1958.  either rural mail or letter carrier  delivery.  Although the style of the mail  box hias changed somewhat over  the years as did the mode of  transportation, the determinatioii  of the Post Office Department  remains the same, to give good  postal service to all Canadians  especially those in country areas  where the arrival of mailman is  often  the highlight of the day.

One of them was the  American novelist Sinclair  Lewis. His books were widely  read and he won .the Nobel  prize in literature for his vivid  and cynical novels about life  and people n the United States  especially in the middle west.  His   books,   Babbit,   Elmer,  Gangtry, Main Street and the  others all had the same sarcastic- attitude and made readers  feel that there were many  worthless people abroad; vapid,  empty arid hypocritical. He appeared to haye very little respect, much less admiration,  for fellow citizens. To a reviewer he said: "I don't know what  to say about anything, I'm not  a reformer of any kind and I  really don't care about anything." He died in. a nursing  home in Rome, Italy, January,  1951.  The other man was Rev.  Peter Bryce who passed away "  on-Nov. 30, 1950. He was for  over 40 years my most intimate friend and if all the hours  I spent in his company were  totalled up it would be extended to many months. I  think I understood him as far  as it is possible for one man to  understand another. Taking  him all in all he gave himself  to the service of others to an  extent I have never* known excelled ��� probably not equalled.  He was responsible for so  many difficult enterprises of  service and goodwill that to  even name them would use up  what space I haye in this column. He was moderator of the  United-Church from 1(?36-1938  and during the last 12 years  of his life, minister of the Metropolitan Church in Toronto.  But he -was no denominational-  ist. He belonged to that noble  army of people who try their  best to make this a better  world in which  to live.  * *v '*'  He" combined, to an extent I  have never known, deep spiritual living���with .a keen inter--  est in everyday affairs. I once  heard him say to a large congregation of people who (were  having a hard time to make  ends meet: "If you come to the  Printed Pat-tern  9173  ; SIZES.  10-18  Jkf luWw Hl*-**f��  ' BARE your shoulders beautifully in this glamorous sheath  that curves close to your fig-  lire, gives; you fashion's new  long-stemmed look.

Nothing could be more characteristic of him; prayer and a  ��� coal club; the spiritual and the  temporal. He knew people had  to eat and be clothed and that  it was unreasonable to expect  them to be .serene and satisfied  if they lacked life's necessities.  That was why he was so intensely interested in Mothers'  Allowances, fresh air camps  and the Workmen's Compensation Act. When some told him  to preach the Gospel and leave  social legislation alone, he replied: ���: "This is the Gospel;  There is' no real distiiicion between temporal and spiritual  affairs; they go hand in hand."  "-'*    *    *  But the chief distinction between Sinclair Lewis and Peter  Bryce was that whereas Lewis  debunked people; made them  feel he despised them and that  Coast News, Oct. 16, 1958.-3  ..._.. .pr���..i.��� ���_.    _������_�� ���-���        ���    ,,_���-._n       -i   ���   ��� ���  helped those who never enter-  they didn't amount to much.  Dr. Bryce had tremendous respect and admiration for alls  even those who had lost faith  in themselves. He made the  humblest feel that they were  great in the sight of God. There  couldn't be, a greater contrast  in attitudes to his and the novelist's. For 14 years he ministered to people wh0 lived in  very humble homes ��� many in  tar-paper covered shacks. He  was not concerned as to whether they attended his church  or not. In hundreds of cases he  ea any church. They were in  need and that was a letter of  introduction to him. In the 46  years I knew him I cannot remember hearing him speak  scornfully of anyone. He,could  be indignant when he saw cruelty and injustice but never  scornful or indifferent.  His funeral was one of the  largest ever held in. Toronto;  and every religious denomination was represented, for he  belonged to all the people.  Judged by some standards he  was not a great preacher; certainly not of the oratorical  type. But he had something to ���  say and he could "t-ay it in a  way that deeply moved hie listeners. It moved them because  they knew behind it all there  was a man of strong convictions and a tender loving heart.  It is not often that God sends  such a man among us.  Our quotation today is a  saying by Mark Rutherford:  "Blessed are they who heal us  of our   self-despisings."  THE CORPORATION OF THE VILLAGE OF SECHELT  ANNOUNCEMENT  J. D.

Mr. Westwood pointed  out that some interesting figures had been uncovered' by'  the new survey.  -' Fifty-eight thousand pleasure, boats operate in British  ColurrJbia waters (including the  interior lakes) of which 40,000  are located in the lower coastal  area of Vancouver Island and  the Lower Mainland.   .     '  ' One hundred, and sixty thousand persons, or one in seven  of our British Columbia population within the lower coastal area, have access to pleasure  craft;  The highest concentration of  pleasure boat owners is on  Vancouver Island w^iere one  . household in every five now  has a pleasure boat of some  type. \  Mr. Westwood concluded  that the development of the  marine park system willl be  continued in as rapid a manner as possible by his provincial parks branch.  A program to install boat  launching ramps of a type tested this summer by the Department of Recreation and Conservation, at suitable points  throughout the lakeshore areas  of the province, has also "been  announced.

"We are  happy with the result of our  experiments."  The ramps are constructed  of interlocking'concrete planks  which contain steel reinforcing  and steel connecting strip's..  They are extremely simple to  construct and have proved to  be practically indestructible to  the ravages of wave action  while having sufficient flexibility to fit existing beach contours. As they are laid over  existing contours, they are not  normally subjected to covering  by sand drift.  "Under the long term construction program the next installations will be-made at Al-  ouette Lake in Garilbaldi Park  and at the newly opened Shus-  wap Lake Park near Celista,''  Mr. Westwood said.  Kato the milkman  Over 40 years ago, when  Hopkins Landing consisted of  the big new Hopkins' home at  cne end of the beach and their  little old home at the other  end of it, the weekend visitor  strolling on the skid roads that  threaded their vague way uphill occasionally heard the  clink of bottles and saw a  bearded, smiling little man  with a number of sacks swung  round his middle.  For a moment, for he matched his surroundings so well  that he faded into them as one  watched him.  In another land he would  -have been one of the "wee folk  of the v glens," but the visitor  on making enquiry was simply told that this was -'Kato,"  the milkman," and the only  other information forthcoming  was that he was a Finn.  It was not long -after the  sailing ship days, and the belief that the Finns had magic  was still strong. Even for a  Finn to have produced milk Tithe tangled wilderness back of  Hopkins took magic, and a lot  more, and "Kato" had it.  From those pioneer days until his death that little man  made two blades of grass grow  where orie grew before, and  . and had a long, happy _ife doing it. Now He has left us, 'but  the memory remains^ Milk now  comes to Hopkins along the  black-top road, in cartons: from  large metal trucks, refrigerated, homogenized and pasteurized, but there was one thing  in which Kato's milk topped  the present ��� day supply, Kato's  milk had cream on it. -���Eric  Thomson*  Winter Is Coming  Put your Car  in Shape Now  Chains, Snow Tires  Antifreeze    ���  i  'S  SERVICE STATION  Sechelt Highway  GIBSONS 220K  SALES & SERVICE  FOR ,_������  NEW McCULLOUGH  CHAIN.

What Radio History Was Mads  From Glace Bay?  Radio history was made at  Glace Bay, N. S. when it. became  the first place in North America  to establish radio conununication  with Europe. Marconi, inventor  of the radio, first made contact  with Europe by radio in 1902  from a nearby promontory named  Table Head.  The settlement is described as  primarily a mining town, with  the Dominion Coal Company  operating the Mghly-mechanized  coal' mines that stretch far" out  > under the sea. Other' industries  include the shore fisheries and  two plants to freeze and process  the fish. Glace Bay was named  for the spring ice, blown in from  the Gulf of St. Lawrence, that  often packs' the bay.  _fM ��..-/-.-:_-V  P.O. Box 37, Gibsons  1334 West Pender St.,  Vancouver S. MU 3-7477.

It was founded by United  Empire Loyalists in 1784 and  named after the tenth son of  George III. A stone obelisk  commemoratesL . its founding.  The church;built by the Loyalists is still standing and in  use as the parish hall.

With a  population  of ten  (millions and  a. huge temporary population of  tourists^ and   visitors from ' all  over the globe it is not surprising that'it is somewhat congested and, with its narrow streets,  it is indeed.surprising that traffic can .move at all, but it does:,  without any worse traffic jams  than .we see in Vancouver.   *  Parking is prohibited on all  main streets and 'No Waiting'  signs abound. There are no parking meters as yet in London ,  nor, as far as we could see, in  any other English cities, but, I  .see by the press that meters are  to be tried out in London in the  near future. Parking must be a?  tough problem for ��� a stranger  but the Londoner seems to know  all the squares and back streets,  where parking is allowed and. we  saw.quantities of parked cars in  these places in our wanderings  around London.
