This  was announced at Monday  night's meeting of the Gibsons  arid  District Board  of  Trade.

The board was informed by  William McAfee, chairman of  the board's Herd Law committee and B.L. Cope, also on the  committee, that owners of  roaming cattle now come under an amendment to. the  Pound act passed during March  in   the   provincial   legislature  which provides a penalty of  $25 on the owner of cattle  found roaming at large.  Signing of the order-in-coun-  cil by the lieutenant-governor  making the area. a Pound district resulted after Victoria  authorities were presented  with a petition signed by more  than 300 persons seeking to  have cattle placed under control.

It started with a request  from various people and organizations who in turn were  informed a notice would be posted. This was done and as a result there was a petition from  16   persons   objecting   to   the  pound law for the area. As a.  result government officials decided a petition with sufficient,  names to prove the pound law  was the wish of the majority  was   necessary.

Up to this point the whammy  ball has put Gibsons Babe  Ruthers behind the eight ball  as the Gibsons lads have been  somewhat cautious about it and  as a result no hits worth a hoot  have been chalked up.  Gibsons lads are trying to  ���find out if the whammy ball  was put under the wraps to  give the Residential boys two  games or whether the Residential boys really have the  answer to it.  On Sunday May 24 at Madeira Park, Gibsons Babe Ruth  boys played the Pender Harbour team and split a double-  header. The first game was 9-7  in favor of Gibsons and the  second game 2-1 in favor of  Pender Harbour. Both were  classed as top-notch games.

Here are the letters and if they do not bring a lump to  your throat you lack milk of human kindness in your system:  Editor: To the people of Pender Harbour and especially  the Ladies Auxiliary for the shower they held for us after the  fire many, many thanks for the wonderful gifts. Each and ev-  ery one "s very much appreciated and will certainly help us get  tetarted again. .  Special thanks also go to Jim Cameron and Les Wilkinson  !_or bringing the gifts up to us and to Jean Rousseau for taking  toe to and from the shower. ��� Stan and Dot Silvey.  Editor: We thank with all our hearts for the many gifts  and help, financial and otherwise and the necessary supplies  we have received. Everyone worked so forthright from the start.  They just took hold and supplied our every need.  So many people came to fight the fire ncluding the Forestry men under Mr. McKinnon and did a tremendous job of keeping the fire from spreading.  The Ackroy'ds so. kindly took us in and neighbors were  sending in food and supplies almost before we got there. The  Legion was on the job quickly with cheery old-solder encouragement and a cheque. The Red Cross sent up a welcome parcel of  bedding.  Since that, to us, terrible day, the people of Pender Harbour and district have been absolutely 'wonderful to all my family   With sincerest thanks, God bless you all. ��� Bill and Mary  Malcolm and family.  Higher standards would help  Stuarte Keate, Victoria Times publisher, addressing' the  Association of the Junior League of America in Victoria criticized what he called the growing demand for shadow instead1 of substance in all areas of mass communication, which includes the  press.  A great deal is being said about the direction in which  mass media are leaning, rather heavily. True, there are good  spots but there are many bad spots, too many. In these times  when sobed thinking should be the rule there does not appear to  be overmuch of it. Main reason? It can be described as the tinkle  of! the cash register. In many directions of mass media sober  thought draws shudders.  Bruce Hutchinson, also of Victoria, some time ago commented on the weaknesses of today's press and more recently  Ken McTaggart, of Vancouver, appeading on TV also said some  potent things about the press.  In these times of mass media controlled by the cash register and the clock, the weekly press has an important place.  One could riot do better than quote some advice from Harmon Rice, for 60 yeans with a weekly, newspaper in Ontario and  regarded as the grand old naan of the weekly newspaper profession. Here is what he had to say to those desiring to enter the  weekly field:  "The changed conditions of business today call for consistent application, intelligent study and the display of such originality as will avoid the ridiculous but keep his* paper securely  on the highway of progress. He should always realize that the basis of his success lies not in the distant fields but closfe about  him. He will serve himself when he decides that his highest interests lie in the cultivation of local respect, co-operation with local means of progress, leadership in high standards of civic life  and honesty and integrity in his business relationships."  The above was quoted from The Weekly Editor in a letter which he wrote to Les Way, publisher of the magazine. There  is much more substance than shadow in Mr. Rice's summation  of what a weekly editor should be. It is to be hoped most, including the Coast News edtor, will strive to make the above a  creed to follow. It is a challenge to any editor, daily, weekly or  otherwise.  ���  Same Night ��� Same Time ��� Same Place  Thurs.  GIBSONS SCHOOL HALL - S p.m. SHARP  $5 ��� $a��-$is-  | Don't Miss First Game $10  j        SUNSHINE COAST WELFARE FUND  Eatable fish flour next  The first full-scale commercial plant for the production of  edible fish flour is. being built  in Sweden and will come into  operation   this year.  Ths development, which was  reported to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the  United Nations, Rome, by representatives of the largest  pharmaceutical manufacturing  company in Sweden, marks a  significant step forward in  man's effort to produce a cheap  and plentiful supply of animal  protein.  In thte course of developing  the flour the Swedish concern  has frequenlty consulted FAO  concerning quality standards,  i~t_,-_-,+-__- tes+i-g, consumer acceptability, price and other factors. Now that the product is  coming into commercial production the company has asked  FAO to co-operate in carrying  out acceptability tests in some  of the underdeveloped countries.  FAO'l** interest in the production of an edible fish flour was  first aroused ten years ago because of the great need for  more animal protein in the diet  of two-thirds of the world's  population of 2,700 million people. Such protein can be supplied through meat, eggs, milk  and fish, but there are various  obstacles to the producton, distribution and marketing of  these on a scale large enough  to meet the needs of the undernourished millions.  Fish, which is a very rich  natural source of animal protein, offered possibilities if,  among other problems, means  could be found of transporting  at low cost such a perishable  commodity to distant markets.  One suggestion for overcoming ���  the probem was to process the  fish to produce an edible flour.  FAO and UNICEF have both  fo cussed attention on this possibility and scientists and technicians in many countries have  worked on ths idea.  Acceptability tests with edible fi-jh flour have been carried  out by FAO and UNICEF in  Latin America, Africa and  e^rewhere. But the problem so  far has been to produce an  odorless and tasteless flour  which, at the same time, retained its animal protein with  a high biological, value.  The Swedish pharmaceutical  manufacturing concern, which  is building the flour factory,  has perfected a method for  producing such�� a flour, containing 85 percent animal pro  tein, which compares with  about 15 percent protein content of fish and meat in fresh  state. This is one of the highest concentrated protein substances yet produced by man  and may mark a major victory  in the battle to supply the mass  of people in the world with  'Sufiliciemt animal protein in  their diet.  The new flour can' be used,  in making bread, pasta, cakes,  pastries, etc., and can be added  to soups and sauces and other  foodstuffs. Already in Scan-  danavia plans have been made  to produce "protein enriched"  bread by including up to five  percent edible fish flour in the  bread. Such an addition adds  only a fraction to the cost because the edible fish flour is  little more expensive than  wheat or maize flour.  Robert D. Wright, N.D.

The BCAA finds that motorists  too often take car batteries for  granted. There also appears to  be general neglect by motorists  in the mechanical care of thsir  cars. A shiny well washed automobile is no indication tint, its  owner has taken the trouble to  keep the" motor in A 1 running  condition.  The BCAA says that much of  the mechanical troubles and battery failures could be avoided,  with a little foresight. An automobile is an exDensive piec^ of  machinery and deserves the best  care. Breakdowns are costly -_.-*  terms of cash and tim�� Ti* is ���p**-*-  safe to drive a car which is not  irii first class running order.  The BCAA suggests that now  is the time for motorists to give  their cars a spring check-up in-  order to assure safe and troubl-J  free driving.

Soil moisture measurement show that the mulch  also reduces evaporation loss  to almost zero and that mulch  ed soils store sufficient moisture for tree and bush fruits  for the firs, few years after  planting.  Me inurements indicated that  one  inch of rain penetrated 2  Ao   2V2   inches   of  mulch.
