He regards this as gratifying and shows a nice increase   over last  year's drive.  The Kiwanis club has expressed its appreciation for  this  fine suport.  While the active work is  over funds are needed to carry  on the work of the Kiwanis  Crippled Children's Camp at  Wilson Creek and any (contribution will be of much assistance to this worthwhile project.  Some kind anonymous person mailed in $20 as a contribution, a happy gift indeed.  The executive of the Gibsons  and District Board of Trade  met at the home of Robert  Holden Monday night and it  was evident .by the full turnout and enthusiasm shown that  the board is much alive.  Through the board's efforts  a blinking light is to be established on Popham Island which  will be of service to all coming into Gibsons. The Merchant's Guild of Vancouver has  announced their efforts have  resulted- in a similar light on  Roger Curtis Point on Bowen  Island. The blinker light in  Gibsons harbor will be speeded  up so it blinks almost twice as  many times per minute as it  does now.  Lights have been repaired on  Gib-sons dock and with a.wa^n,- ,  ing that "the*d'epaHmerit cannot  continue indefinitely to repair  them. It is up to those using  the cock to neip ponce it from  vandalism to the lights.  Through the board's efforts  the Post Office department has  modernized the lofcal parcel  post regulations so you can  nc��.v mail parcels in Gibsons  for up coast points such as Sechelt or Halfmoon Bay.

Mrs. Christine Johnston,  chairman, stated the tax rate  will remain at 10 mills, but she  anticipates a raise in the school  mill rate. The main village expenditure will be on village  roads. A program of flush coating some of the roads has been  prepared by Louis Hansen,  chairman of the road committee.  The commission is seeking  the co-operation of the Sechelt  Board of Trade to have the  sanitary inspector cover only  Sechelt Peninsula rather than  his now extended district which  includes most of Howe Sound.  The appointment of village  clerk E.T. Rayner as fire prevention offcer was approved.  He will issue burning permits  within the village boundaries.  In connection with school  board figures while nothing official has been announced by  the board it is understood based on unofficial figures, Sechelt will supply 3.73 percent  of the total school budget,  which will amount to slightly  under $14,500. Gibsons municipality supplies almost six  percent of the budget and will  contribute less than $22,500 of  the budget. The rural area  which supplies more than 90  percent of the budget will contribute slightly less than $350,-  000.  Port Mellon celebrates  More than 200 persons attended a lunction which marked the opening of the new Seaside hotel at Port Mellon, as  guests of Canadian Forest Products, on Friday of last week.  C.B. Davies, manager of the  CFP Port Mellon pulp mill was  host aided by members of the  mill and hotel  staff.  The hotel, rebuilt after last  year's disasterous' fire which  demolished the upper storey,  has been switched around with  the main entrance now being  at the back instead of in the  front which simplifies the  movement of people from cars  to the hotel  interior.  Inside the rooms have been  done in pastel shades with differing color schemes in each  room along with furniture  which blends into the general  scheme. There is a lunch counter down stairs with an up-to-  date kitchen with tables as  well as counter stools.  In conjunction with the opening of the hotel, the first half-  ceiiiruy of Port Mellon is also  recognized by a condensation  of Pert Mellcr**':?. history from  the booklet published recently.  This condensation starts on  page 2, continues to page 3 and  then turns to page 8.  There is also a story about  the new hotel on page two  which deals with the hotel history from its early days which  go back as far as 1907. Tho  Port Mellon historical data  has been taken from the publication written and edited by  W.W. Brown and J.B. Stewart.  The article covering the history of Port Mellon was puo-  lkfaed in a centennial issue of  the Thunderbird which is published by the Port Mellon Community Association.  Dance revue prog ram lengthy  Bali te  Dave Flummerfelt, manager  of the Wilson Creek Little League Baseball team said 25 beys  turned out to the first practise session of this year. With  eight veterans returning Flum-  merfelt and coach Bruno Pra-  tico anticipate a smooth running organization.  Ray Rankin, last year's star  catcher has been elected team  captain. Gus Crucil, Doug Oike  and Chick Moorehouse who  were respectively manager and  coaches for the Wilson Creek  team from the time Little League commenced on the Peninsula four years ago have promised full co-operation with the  new coaching staff.  Dave Flummerfelt praised  Crucil, Oike and Moorhouse  for the fine work and long  hours they have given to the  Little League movement since  its inception on the Peninsula.  CHRISTIAN  ELMHOLDT  Ole Elmholdt, popular owner  of Ole's Cove near Secret Gov 3,  was bereaved last week by the  death of his father, Christian  Elmholdt, in Drammen, Norway.

Is.. - "   '  The story of the first pulp company begins in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1907, Mrs. Mellon, wife of Captain  H. A. Mellon, visited her stepson Mr. H. G. Mellon. There  she met a Mr. Greely Kolts who had been endeavouring  without success to incorporate a pulpmill to make soda pulp  from sawdust. There was plenty of sawdusffc in Aberdeen, but  insufficient water for a pulpmill. Mrs. Mellon expounded  the advantages of British Columbia for wood and water,  and Mr. Kolts shortly came to Vancouver, B.C. and met  Captain Mellon.  Captain Henry Augustus  Mellon was born in Nottingham  England, in 1840. At the age  of 14 he went to sea as an apprentice and served five years  on the "Chimera." Shortly  afterwards he joined the Royal  jMavy and became a member of  H. M. S. Zenobia. He was in  Calcutta when the Indian Mutiny broke out and was wounded in action. After recovery he  joined the Peel Brigade, saw  action at Chitteringham and  then at the relief of Lucknow.  He was wounded in the ankle  and later discharged.  He joined the Allen Line  with which he served ten years  then the Dominion Steamship  Company.   After   seven   years.  he became Commodore of this  line. He retired from  the sea  in  1879  and came  to  Canada  that  year.   He   farmed   for   a  while near Winnipeg,   Manitoba, but moved to Vancouver in  1886,  setting  up as  a  marine  surveyor and insurance expert  He was a Police Magistrate  for some years. In addition he  played   an  active part in   the  social and business life of early Vancouver, being first president  of the  St.  George's Society,   Spanish  vice-consul  for  B.C., a life member of the New  Orleans Cotton Exchange, and  one of the founders of the Art,  Historical and Scientific Association,  to mention a few. He  died in Vancouver on Feb. 14,  1916.  Turns to pulp and paper  In his 67th year Captain Mellon began his connection with  the pulp and paper industry.  With Mr. Kolts as fiscal agent,  the British Canadian Wood  Pulp & Paper Company was  formed and secured a provincial charter in early 1908. Wa-  ter rights were secured on  Rainy River.  Most  of  the  equipment for  the mill was purchased in the  U.S. The digesters were made  by a most reputable concern in  the U.S. and   there   tested   to  200 lbs. per square inch. The  pulp company  wished to operate  them  at  125 lbs. but the  JB.C.    boiler    inspectors,    who  -worked to Royal Navy specifications,    would   not   approve  them   for    operation   at   more  than  120 lbs.  In  the  light of  present-day  puip-making practice this 5 lbs difference would  not appear to be of great importance to the cooking, but it  nevertheless initiated the first  of a series of arguments with  the boiler inspectors extending  through  the  first 40 years of  .Port Mellon'?,' history. The digesters were ultimately licensed.  Construction was slow due to  the need to import the equipment. However, it was finished  early  in   1909. A Mr. Hamlin  from the Southern U.S. was the  first mill manager. The mill  itself was known as Pioneer  Mills. Except for a mill which  had been started in Port Alberni in 1894 but since gone  out of business, it was the province's first paper mill.  The first paper was run off,  being a mixture of the mill's  own soda pulp  with  bleached  book and waste paper. Through  the kindness of Mr. H.G. Mellon, a section of the first roll  of paper is now preserved at  Port Mellon.   This   paper  was  not marketed, having too high  a waste content. A new manager was secured from Tacoma,  and  several  skilled  operators.  The mill then produced a good  grade of wrapping paper which  it  was  hoped   to  sell  in B.C.  The wood supply was second-  growth cordwood cut by Japanese   contractors.   The   company hoped to assure itself of  a long-term wood supply and,  in 1909, before any paper was  made, bought out the Western  Canada   Wood  Pulp   &  Paper  Co.,   which    had   large   pulp-  wood leases on northern Vancouver    Island.    Such    leases  were    enabled    by    provincial  government legislation of 1902,  presumably  to   attract  a   pulp  industry   to  the  province.  Production costs too hi  The mill at Port Mellon ran  for only about four months under the British Canadian Wood  Pulp & Paper Co. The costs of  fuel (coal) and transportation  were too high to make the undertaking successful. Working  capital ran out, and the plant  ���closed.  The mill stayed idle, and it  was not until 1912 that it was  purchased, by American interests headed by Lester W. David of Seattle. Mr. David had  been active in the formation  of the Ocean Falls Company  -Limited in 1909. Port Mellon  became known as Colonial  liumber & Paper Mills. There  is no evidence that the pulpmill ever operated for this  company, or that any lumber  .was produced ��� in fact there  was no sawmill.  In 1916 or 1917 there were  expressions of interest in the  assets of Colonial Lumber &  Paper Mills. About this time,  the Whalen brothers of Port  Arthur, Ont., moved to B.C.  and began acquiring pulpmills.  In Port Arthur they were connected with the Port Arthur  Shipbuilding Company, still in  existence, a long-time manufacturer of machinery for pulp-  mills as a sideline to its shipbuilding and dredging activities, but nothing came of this.  Meanwhile, in 1917, Port  Mellon passed into the hands  of the Rainy River Pulp &  Paper Co., with head office in  the Standard Bank Building in  Vancouver, and a capital of  .-���$1,000,000.  Superintendent   of   the  mill  was a Mr. Cairns. 65 people  were employed at the mill,  which was converted to the  kraft from the soda process  but otherwise little changed.  Operators in the mill worked two shifts, 11 hour day shifts  and 13 hour night shifts. There  were no spare operators, so if  one was ill the other worked  without relief. Evaporator operators received 23 cents per  hour. There were no 'days off.'  Shifts changed every two  weeks. In the process of changing, the operators got a few  extra hours off but then had to  work an 18 hour shift to get  back on schedule.  At first there was one bunk-  house, a very poor building  built on piles out over the water and apparently not big  enough as some of the operators were put up in any mill  building where room could be  found for beds. The cookhouse  was in one end of the old lime  shed in front of the mill. The  plant itself was dilapitated in  the extreme. After a year or  two, a boarding house was built  for employees. This was the  "Old Cookhouse" torn down a  few years ago. It stood just  south of the present Grey  Dorm. A Mr. and Mrs. Archer  ran it for the company.  Some personnel of those days  are still around, Charlie Heino  now of Vancouver was one of  the Machine Tenders. The  other was an Austrian with the  unlikely name of Mike. The  late Arnold (Chuck) Winegarden was first a fireman and  then   an  evaporator   operator.  Nelson J. Winegarden, his son  now of Westview, first hauled  ashes, then worked in the machine room and finally took  ever the other shift on the  evaporator. Mr. J. Home predates even these, having worked on the building of the original mill in 1908. Similarly  Mr. Alfred Wyngaert of Gibsons.  The logs used were local second growth, some dragged to  the mill by a four-horse team  in the charge of a Mr. Prescott.  Others were brought by water  into a slough approximately in  the location of the present turbine room. They were cut into  short lengths on land and fed  to the chipper. At first,there  were no facilities for baling the  pulp, the machine having made  only paper previously, and so  the pulp was made into Trolls.  Later it was cut and balejl, the  bales being tied with string at  first, subsequently with wires.  All sorts of wood were used including cedar which was stated  to produce a very hard or  coarse pulp. ...  A man who was to -have  a great influence on Port Mellon for many years, came to it  during the tenure of the Rainy  River Company. He was: Trig  Iverson, who was* drowned in  1942. He had entered the pulp  industry with the Brown Corporation at La Tuque, Quebec,  in 1910. Being of adventurous  disposition he moved around  widely in the industry, holding  responsible positions in many  mills. In later years he vv��._ in  a logging enterprise on northern Vancouver Island, and also at Ocean Falls for a while.  He had a soft spot for Port Mellon however, and kept returning to it at every opportunity  throughout his career. It is no  injustice to his memory to say  that in the mill he was one of  ���the old school of superintendents, with an unamiable approach to many operating problems. It seems likely that he  first came to Port Mellon  straight from the mill at Beaver Cove which had just closed  down.  In 1920 Port Mellon was  bought by the Western Canada  Pulp and Paper Co. Ltd. The  Pulp and Paper Magazine of  Canada reported in 1920 thai  the head office of this company  was in Toronto. Tryg Iverson  returned to the mill as superintendent. Andy Hedlund, a longtime cook at Port Mellon, also  came. Some dryers were added  to No. 1 machine, and two new  digesters installed. The first  cook was made on Sept. 3, 1920  The Western Canada Pulp &  Paper Co., was heavily indebted to the Home Bank of Canada ��� apparently to the tune  of one-half to three-quarter  million dollars. The bank failed about 1925, and the pulp  company was thereby forced  into bankruptcy.  Mr. Jamieson was offered  the receivership of the pulp  company but declined. A Mr.  William Hobbs, or a Mr. Buck-  worth, a Trust company official, took the post. He reincorporated the mill as the Howe  Sound Pulp & Paper Ltd., presumably to facilitate its sale.  Mr. Harry Bentham came in as  caretaker in 1925, and remained for many years in various  capacities.  The mill was purchased in  March, 1927, for $250,000 ���  with $182,000 mortgaged back  to the Howe Sound Pulp & Paper Company ��� by Fred W.  Leadbetter of Portland, Oregon.  F. W. Leadbetter was the  son-in-law of a Mr. Pittock who  founded the papermill at Camas, Washington, in 1883. It  commenced operation in 1885  as the Columbia River Paper  Co. Now it is part of the Crown  Zellerbach organization. About  1897 Mr. Leadbetter took over  management of the Camas mill  In 1905 it merged with the  Crown Paper Company of Oregon, and became the Columbia  Paper Compony, Mr. Leadbetter retaining his interest. In  1914 it merged again, this time  with the Willamette Pulp &  Paper Company, to become the  Crown Willamette Paper Co.,  and Mr. Leadbetter withdrew.  Today it is the world's largest  specialty paper mill with some  14 paper machines turning out  an enormous variety of papers.  In 1919 Mr. Leadbetter organized the Oregon Pulp & Paper Co. at Salem, Oregon, and  this mill now produces over  120 tons of fine and wrapping  paper daily. In 1921 he formed  Columbia River Paper Mills at  Vancouver, Washington, now  making about 120 tons of fine  paper per day. In 1926 he formed a holding company, Columbia River Paper Company, to  bring together the management  of these two plants and one  other one in Los Angeles which  he had acquired but later sold.  Fred W. Leadbetter died in  1947. He was one of the pioneers of the paper industry on  the Pacific Coast, a man with  great faith in the potentialities  of the region, and a developer  of much-needed industry in it.  His Port Mellon venture was  probably his least successful.  His shutdowns of the mill, both  very   summary,   in   1929   and  SEASIDE HOTEL  1937, resulted in hard feelings  among those thrown out of employment and residence. All  the evidence suggests, however  that Port Mellon was no idle  promotional scheme for him,  but that it fitted in with long-  term plans of expansion and diversification of his paper holdings. One must give credit to  his perseverance with Port Mel-  2    Coast News, April 23, 1959.  Ion which, until he took it over  had hardly changed in 20  years. He gave it its first vital expansion and face-lifting.  On April 26, 1927 the purchase of Port Mellon was, finalized, and steps taken to put  the mill into operation, under  the name Vancouver Kraft  Mills Ltd. Mr. B.M. Doolittle,  an   ex-Beaver  Cove  man,  was  (Continued on Page 3)  istory dates  In 1907 George Cates, another  son of Andrew Jackson Cates,  owner of the Beach Avenue Shipyards in Vancouver, sold out and  bought lot 1364 at Port Mellon  from his father. He moved up to  the location and started building  the original Seaside Hotel on  the point in front of the present  hotel. Then, or within a few  years, he also purchased three  acres of lot 1366 from his brother Charles, these lying imme  diately behind the hotel. They  were presumably to give the hotel more spacious grounds.  The year after he commenced!  building the hotel, George sold  the easterly half of his lot, except for the small portion over  Rainy River where the hotel was  located, to the British Canadian!  Wood Pulp & Paper Company  then being formed. When, the  hotel was rebuilt after burning  down years later, it was put farther back, well on the three-  acre plot aforementioned.  The building of the hotel at  the same time as the pulp mill  was being organized seems more  than coincidence, and in fact  George Cates is reported1 to have  beeni one of the original directors of the pulp company. His  son, Captain Adrian Cates, was  at Seaside with him until 1912.  A nephew, Captain Charles W.  Cates, well known as Reeve of  North Vancouver in recent year-"  and head of C. H. Cates & Sons  towing company, also spent a  good deal of time at Seaside and  helped his uncle put a wire  bridge across Rainy River about  1915. There must have been an,  earlier bridge as shown in an  artist's  sketch of Pioneer Mills.  Under George Cates, Seaside  was for many years a popular  visiting point* for boat excursions  from Vancouver. About 1933 the  original hotel burned down during a Squamish, a stormy condition peculiar to Howe Sound  and vicinity. Mr. Cates was already in poor health from an accident a few years before, and  the loss of the hotel was a severe  shock to him. He died a year  or so later.  A Mr. Storey bought the property from the estate, and built  and operated the present hotel  for several years. From him it  passed into the hands of a Mr.  Norris.  The Sorg Pulp Company  acquired the hotel in the early  years of its tenure and operated  it through a subsidiary, Seaside  Park Limited. New beer parlors  were added. The late Gordon  Mackenzie leased and operated  it until his untimely death in  195*9, when Mrs. Mackenzie tool-  over the management. Seaside  Park Limited was acquired along  with other Sorg assets by Howe  Sound Pulp Company, and Mrs.  Mackenzie stayed on until the  middle of 1951.  Miss Mary Siperell, followed  by Mr. W. Peterson managed the'  hotel until 1954, during which  year Seaside Park Limited was  liquidated and its assets take.-,  over by Howe Sound "Transportation Company Limited, a subsidiary of Canadian Forest Products Ltd., to which it still belongs. Messrs. J. A. (Brownie)  Brown, Charles iTassie, Frank  Chaston and Tom Lusk managed  the hotel in turn until March,  1958. Regrettably its 50 year history was again clouded by fire,  the top floor having been destroyed in March and the hotel  closed   down.  Paint contractors, Al Gibbens  and Fred Corley did the interior  decorating and exterior painting.  Tile floors were layed by Hal  Paradise Company and Burritt  Bros, carpeted hallways and  stairwells. All draperies and  some furnishings were supplied  by T. Eaton Co. contract division.  A gleaming new kitchen will  provide meals to the Coffee Shop  and enlarged dining room where  banquets for 40 or 50 people may  be held. Most of the staff will  be familiar to former patrons, as  Rollie Marleau, Mr. and Mrs.  Bert Nichols and Mrs. V. Enemark return to Seaside under  the supervision of Manager, Max  Enemark.  Canadian Forest Products have  reconstructed the Hotel after the  disastrous fire of March, 1958,  as a service and a convenience  to the employees residing in the  surrounding district.  In November 1958, Seaside  Hotel was getting a new look, as  Sechelt contractor, John Toyn-  bee's crew were in full swing.  Supervising architect, Bill Dunn  of North Vancouver had designed*" a building to fit into the rustic setting at Seaside Park, with  cedar siding and an expansive  roof of local cedar shakes. A  new entrance from the parking  area was incorporated and enhanced with tapestry brick planters by A. Simpkins.  As construction progressed  men of Howe Sound Pulp maintenance crews moved in to install the pumbing, heating, electrical work and1 refrigeration.  A variety of Pacific Veneer products were used almost exclusively on the interior walls  and white accoustic tile applied  to the ceilings downstairs. Lighting was chosen to make all areas  bright and show up the distinctive " wall finishes.  Congratulations and Good Wishes to  The  Soasid& Hotel  Seaside Park, B.C.  on the opening of their  new, re-modelled premises  *  To achieve the distinctively beautiful  interior effects, PV plywoods and  hardboards were used exclusively,  including Etch Wood, Weldtex,  Score-ply, Golonial Board and  Frontierply.  Pacifie Veneer & PSyweod livision View of the Port MieHon Mill some years ago  (Coniinued   from  Page  2)  brought in as manager. Tryg  Iverson returned as superintendent. Harry Bentham was  appointed assistant to Mr. Doo-  little. Andy Hedlund returned.  Tom Bentham, Arne Lien, F.J.  Wyngaert, and many others  still around these parts first  came to Port Mellon at this  time.  Tryg strove mightily to get  the mill running well, put  there were continual breakdowns of the antiquated equipment, to tbe detriment of  Tryg's temper, which operators  of the time well remember. After a few months it became  clear that the mill "would not  do, and it was shut down. Mr.  Leadbettet determined to modernize it.  He interested the Bates  Valve Bag Company, one of  the early leaders in the multi-  wall paper sack industry, of  Chicago in Port Mellon a_s a  source of the kraft pulp which  was the basic material of the  bags. In 1927 Mr. N.G. Teren  of the Bates Company visited  Fort Mellon with Mr. Lead-  better and found it, in the  words of one who was present  "an unholy mess." Mr. Lead-  better outlined his plan�� for  rebuilding the mill, and although these fell somewhat  short of the hopes of the Bates  Company, they contracted to  take its entire output providing  it was rebuilt and in operation  by a certain date.  On April 24, 1928, the Vancouver Kraft Company Limited  was incorporated in B.C. to  take elver the properties of  Vancouver Kraft Mills.  In September of 1929 a Vancouver Province writeup of operations at Port Mellon mentioned "thirty - five modern  dwelling�� for employees."  These later became known as  Tar Paper Alley, happily demolished in 1951 by the simple expedient of pushing them  into a heap with a bulldozer  and setting a match to them.  Regrettably, many of the other  Leadbetter plans for Port Mellon met with no better luck.  Shortly after, the depression  set in, the price of kraft pulp  dropped from $60 to $30 per  ton. Mr. Leadbetter stopped  construction. The Bates company soon cancelled its contract for pulp. Tryg Iverson,  Arne Lein and others from the  mill went loggng on northern  Vancouver Island for Mr. Daly,  the former president of the  Western Canada Pulp & Paper Co. Harry Bentham went  back to caretaking at the mill.  There is little question that  had the mill been completed  then it would have been advanced for its time. The rotary  digesters offered great advantages over stationary digesters  of that day. The integration of  pulp and lumber manufacture  was fully visualized. There  were even tentative plans for  a long scow dock and conveyor belt off the point to take  chips from other sawmills, an  idea which it is believed did  not see the light anywhere for  many years.  The bondholders in Vancouver Kraft CoJrnpany became  restive and, through their trustee, the National Trust Co.,  demanded action. At a meeting  with them in Portland, Mr.  Leadbetter guaranteed their  money himself. The Vancouver Kraft Company filed its  last annual report in 1936, at  which time the directors were  the. same as originally except  that Mr. W.E. Burns replaced  Mr. Stockton. The company  wad finally dissolved and  struck off the register in Au-  ust, 1940.  The mill stayed closed for  seven years, Meanwhile Mr.  Teren. had become Mr. Lead-  better's son-in-law and joined  his organization in the U.S. in  1933. In 1935 it was decided to  re-open and complete the mill,  and Mr. Teren was put in  charge. The Port Mellon Operating Company Limited was  incorporated in B.C. -on September 7, 1935. Authorized  capital 400 no par value shares  which were sold at a maximum  price of $1 each.  The mill** remained in the  ownership of -the Vancouver  Kraft Company Limited. The  mill at Port Mellon was reopened primarily to supply  pulp tb Columbia River Paper  Mills, and secondarily to work  into a re-organization of the  parent company that was then  being contemplated.  A Mr. Pakenham is reported  to have been appointed manager. Tryg Iverson returned as  superintendent, and his brother Thurston as assistant superintendent. Fred Bancroft was  chief engineer, and others men-  I  It is  our pleasure  to have been  General Contractors  on the new  Seaside Hotel  Port Mellon  Go., Ltd.

An additional pulp machine,  No. 2, was installed. The mill  started up, and also the sawmill, the latter under a Mr.  Roach.  Tryg Iverson had built himself a small sawmill on the  waterfront between Port Mellon and Hillside, and brought  Nelson Winegarden in to keep  it rjupplied with logs.  Thurston Iverson had entered the paper industry with the  St. Maurice Paper Co. (now  the Cape Division of Consolidated Paper Corporation Limited) at Cap de la Madeleine,  Quebec. He rose from chemist  to superintendent there. It  closed in 1930 and he went  into other work until he came  to Port Mellon in 1936.  In spite of the announced intention to make pulp for Columbia River Paper Mills, there  seems to have been great interest in shipping it to Japan,  and some shipments were  made. Once again the mill only  ran for a few months and then  closed. Mr. Leadbetter is reported to have arrived suddenly at the mill, conferred briefly in the office, and then departed. Tryg Iverson then ordered the miL. shut down immediately and everyone out of  Port Mellon within a week or  two. Tryg Iverson went to  Ocean Falls but Thurston stayed on for a while as superintendent. Thurston then returned to Eastern Canada.  In 1939 tlie sawmill, steam-  plant, and machine shop of the  mill were leased to the Lake  Logging Company for a few  months and operated under a  Mr. Haskell. Also in 1939 the  reorganization of the Leadbetter companies was carried  through. One outcome of this  was the formation of the Vancouver Kraft Corporation Limited. This new concern was registered in B.C. ori June 8.  By this time World War II  was well under way, and the  prospects for continuing supplies of Scandinavian kraft  puip in North America looked  thin. In those dayte Scandinavian kraft was supreme in the  export market. The Sorg Paper  Company of Middletown, Ohio,  became interested in Port Mellon as a means of assuring its  supply  of kraft pulp.  Port Melion started up again  jn 1940 still under the Vancouver Kraft Corporation. Production   was   about   60  tons   per  day. Due to ihe acvanced state  of obsolescence of the mill, operations were  difficult in  the  extreme^   However,   a   certain  light-heartedness prevailed? and  the  place had   an  element  of  comic-opera charm. The Sound,  right off the end of the dock,  was a convenient disposal point  for   the   mountains   of  broke  which accumulated. If the water   supply failed,   as it  often  did, the crews grabbed shovels,  sandbags, or whatever else was  required, and repaired  to the  intake for a shift or a day to  get things going again. The office   building   was   part   mill-  stores,   pprt /laboratory,   part  general store ��� the latter presided over by Mr. and Mrs. H.  Bentham.    Tryg   Iverson   had  once   again  returned  to   Port  Mellon as superintendent. This  same   year   he married  Mary  Trower.   Larry    Harris,    with  many    years    experience     at  Ocean Falls, came in as chemist.  The Sorg Paper Company  soon contracted for the entire  output of Port Mellon, and also  took a two-year option to buy  the mill for $2V2 million. This  interest was sparked by Mr.  E.T. Turner, a vice-president of  the Sorg Company. Within a  few months Sorg took up its  option to buy. Thus ended Port  Mellon's longest ownership to  that time. F.W. Leadbetters  acumen had not made it a success, but his personal means  and useful connections had  held it together. He died in  1947.  The Sorg Company in Middletown consist of three originally independent paper mills  on adjacent properties. These  mills are now known as the  Sorg, Oglesby, and Smith divisions, the names being those  of the original companies. Tlie  Oglesby Paper Company was  founded in 1852, at a time  when paper was made from  rags rather than wood pulp,  and its basement until recently contained the remains of  many old rag boilers. The Sorg  family was prominent in early  Middletown, which ia now predominantly a steel community  although it still contains a number of paper mills. Claude  Sorg, production manager, is  the only member of the Sorg  family to have been in the paper company  in recent years.

Mr. Mitchell was born in  Ontario and was a widower. He  lived at 4151 Rumble St., Burnaby. A graveside service was  conducted by Rev. David Donaldson of Gibsons United  church. He was buried beside  his wife in Seaview Cemetery.  Mr. T. Humphries, a member of the United Church board  in Gibsons and organist at the  church in recalling Mr. Mitchell, wrote the following:  Mr. Mitchell came to British Columbia quite early in  the century and settled in Gibsons where he worked for  some time in the Armstrong  Lumber Mill and at other jobs.  His stay in Gibsons 'was interrupted for about five years during which he engaged in fruit-  farming in the Okanagan.  Returning to Gibsons he settled on a large lot on Fletcher  Rd. where for many years he  and his like-minded wife cultivated a fine garden of fruit,  flowers and vegetables. After  his wife's death he lived in  Gibsons alone for many years  but finally owing to failing  health, retired to the United  church Fair-haven home in Vancouver where he lived until  near the end of his life.  Mr. Mitchell was a man of  cheerful and happy disposition,  highly respected and loved by  his many friends. He was sincerely religious and had at  heart the promotion of church  work and all good causes. He  was an elder in Gibsons United  church, taught in the Sunday  School and filled other offices and frequently, when the  minister was ill or absent, taking the Sunday service with  much acceptance to the congregation.  His name will be remembered with regard and affection  by all who knew him.  4    Coast News, April 23, 1959.  Port Mellon  By  Mrs. J. Macey  Mr. and Mrs. J.

The prairie dog is rot a dog  at all but a burowing animal related to the ground squirrel. It  s;ets its name from the fact tha*  its call resembles the bark of  a dog. While it is found in great  nJumbers on the short-grass  prairie of the western plains of  the United States, the only  colonies in Canada are in the  Var Marie area of southern Saskatchewan. The adult grows to  about 16 inches in length from  nose to tip of tail and weighs  from two to three pounds. It is  reddish brown-above, lighter be-  -*��ath.

In these days of super-markets the "elementary fact seems  often to be forgotten that from  the animal kingdom comes  much of our sustenance in the  nature of ..butter, cheese, milk,  wool,   etc.,   etc.   and  each and  every one of .these creatures  giving of suc-Vi-tribute is surely  entitled to gentle treatment.

Low municipal taxes  News that the Gibsons municipal mill rate remains as it  has for the last few years at 13 mills, should be heartening information to taxpayers.  It is a good advertisement for Gibsons from more than  one point of view. It shows wise handling of tax money by the  men elected to the village commission. This may sound like a  pat on the back just because the tax mill rate has been held at  a certain figure. The pat on the back covers much more than that.  It covers the hours members of the village commission put in  studying the needs of the village in roads, water, maintenance  and other smaller area�� of expenditure.  It shows there is a good basic understanding of what has  occurred in the past in relation to what is happening today, and  jvice versa. It shows the village commissioners respect taxpayers'  money otherwise there would be many grandiose schemes for  development in this area. They will come, and based on the present type of village commission Gibsons enjoys, they will come  naturally, which is the proper way.  Considering the size of its population Gibsons is a fine  place in which to live. There were those people who when Black-  Bail Ferries moved to Langdale, preached blue ruin. There will  tie those who when a highway is established to bypass Gibsons  ���will add their cries of woe. Gibsons has nothing to worry about.  It will be a community! well worth living in, providing the taxpayers support the type of village commission it has had this  last many years. There may be slight disagreements in some  people's minds because their world starts at the front door and  ends at their back door, but they are few, thank goodness.  A lamp of Knowledge  Canada's Library Week lasted from April 12 to 18 but  there is no reason why the Sunshine Coast area should not continue the idea of Library Week over a longer period in order to  impress the mind with the idea libraries are a necessity.  Dorothy Canfield Fisher when delivering a lecture at the  New York Public Library some time before she died last November, said she always stepped into the local library wherever she  happened to be and took its condition as more or less an indication of the more or less civilized plane of living in the community.  There is common sense in the above and a well organized  library usually is due tb the care taken in starting and keeping  it going. There are two good libraries on the Sunshine Coast, one  at Port Mellon and the other at Gibsons.  To carry the suggestion of the value of a good library a  little further, the experienced eye can tell almost at a glance  whether a newspaper has a library and whether it makes use of  it. When we speak of newspaper, the larger dailies are meant because it is difficult for the average small weekly to organize a  proper library but it would be to their advantage to have the  beginnings of one. A good public library can also make an impression in a community by helping its citizens acquire knowledge.  There is a vast fund of information available to everyone if they will only learn how to dig into existing publications.  The Gibsons and Port Mellon libraries, while in their infancy,  are a credit to their communities but they can be made better  through use. With so much information that needs gleaning, being broadcast by the press, radio and television the individual  seeking to straighten out the facts that revolve around him or  her has a good source to delve into in a well-organized library.  Areas with good libraries can always* turn out students who  have a good grounding in the essentials the students require ���  because it was made available. That availability would be the  result of the efforts of older people who know what knowledge  can do when applied. Naturally money would be involved but  when money iri translated into Knowledge in the minds of those  desiring it ��� why quibble over the value of money?  To pick up Dorothy Canfield Fisher's remarks again she  said in her lengthy speech that there are projects, to make libraries more useful to the community at large ��� if only the community would wake up to the po��**:*ibilities and provide a little more  of the financial and moral support needed.  Enough has been said to make residents of the Sunshine  Coast realize the libraries do help to make a community a better place in which to live.  iiiMmMimummmHuimnnminummmmmnmtmmgitHwinniwiy  Mission  A fine Orange Soft Drink made with  California Valencia Oranges  r9W9**B*��v*m*MmrM9**wm  The Sorg and Oglesby divisions produce printing papers,  boards, and tissues, with four  paper machines each.' The  Smith division, with one large  kraft paper machine, produces  multi-wall sack paper and kraft  specialties. The Smith division  is the only one to use a significant amount of kraft pulp.  Technical director of the Sorg  Company at the time Port Mellon was acquired was Ralph B.  ("Docj") Roe, inventor many  years previously of the universally known Roe Chlorine Num  ber. He died in 1948.  The Sorg Paper Company  Limited was incorporated in  B.C. on July 17, 1941.  Production was then about  100 tons per day, but the small  digesters and inadequate caus-  ticizing and recovery equipment made further progress difficult. The housing situation  in Port Mellon was, however,  greatly improved from previous times, and there was less  difficulty in attracting staff. A  general spirit of good fellowship held in spite of the production troubles, and the  weekly poker parties in the old  Guest House were noted for  their conviviality.  As production grew during  the forties, so did the load on  No. 9 boiler and the H.R.T.'s  all of which were still burning  hog fuel. These boilers, not  being equipped with fly-ash  collectors, created what can  only be called the Era of Great  Black Dandruff. If there is any  more irritating memory of Port  Mellon than that of continually finding dozens of pieces of  fly-ash in one's hair, or working their way to destruction between one'�� collar and neck,  it has not been recorded.  In Sorg days, Chinese were  employed to pick over the sawmill slab material for routing  to the barkers, chippers, etc.  Some 50 or more were engaged,  living a life of their own in  bunkhouses near the sawmill.  In addition were the dormitory  and cookhouse personnel, Henry Won Jew being the only  remaining representative in  1958.  The Sorg Paper Company  and its main customers for  multi-wall sack paper were,  however, finding it increasingly difficult to compete with integrated (i.e. combined pulp  and paper) mills in the Southern U.S. The Raymond Bag  Company for example, had  long been a steady customer of  the Sorg Company for this type  of paper and, while Sorg and  Raymond had benefitted greatly during the war years from  Port Mellon's pulp supply, the  economic trend was now  against them. In 1948, for tlie  first time, efforts were made  to sell Port Mellon pulp on the  open market. Several reputable  sales concerns, including Acer  & Co., and Bulkley Dunton Inc.  were engaged at various times.  Later the Powell River Sales  Company handled West Coast  business. Sales were quite  promising for a while but tapered off sharply in 1949, just  as new digesters and a new  recovery plant were put on the  line.  Mr. Lewis died suddenly of  a heart attack at the end of  1948. This, combined with the  poor market situation caused  some pessimism at the mill.  Promisees were made that the  mill would not be closed, but  by July the economic facts had  become too hard for the parent company and closure was  announced. Residents were given a month or so to remove  from Port Mellon. A small  maintenance staff was kept on  under Jack Boa, former carpenter foreman. Tom Bentham,  George Hostland, Harold Stewart, Jim Swan and Chris Wood  comprised the staff. School  was continued in tlie school  building on mill property. The  mill itself was offered for sale  at this time, but no one was interested in it.  In June, 1950, due to the Korean war, the demand for kraft  pulp started to improve. The  Sorg -Paper Company wa�� not  interested in running the Port  Mellon mill itself and found  many companies interested in  purchasing it.  A reorganization offer by  Canadian Forest Products interests and Perkins-Goodwin  Co., was accepted.  The name Sorg Pulp Company Limited was changed to  Howe Sound Pulp Company  Limited on March 8, 1951.  The Canadian Forest Products interests comprised a  group of companies with the  following background; it may  be said to have commenced  with the arrival in Canada in  1938 of Mr. Otto Pick, his family and associates. These included his son Mr. J.G. Prentice, and son-in-law, Mr. L.L.G.  Bentley. Mr. Prentice, a doctor  of laws from the University of  Vienna, had been actively engaged in the textile business  in Austria and Czechoslovakia.  Mr. Bentley, also educated at  the University of Vienna, and  a textile engineer, had been  connected with that industry  in Austria. The Pacific Veneer  Company Limited was organized in 1938, and this was joined  in the next few years by several other companies concerned with sawmilling and logging  A consolidation of these was  effected in 1944 under tha  name Canadian Forest Products Limited, with Mr. Otto  'Pick as president, and Messrs.  Prentice and Bentley as vice-  presidents. Mr. Pick died in  1950 and Mr. Prentice succeeded him as president.  Mr. L.L.G. Bentley became  the first president of the Howe  Sound Pulp Company Limited;  with directors as follows: J.G.  Prentice, first vice-president;  Wm. McMahan, second vice-  president; D.G. Driscoll, Russell Mill��, H.V. Whittal, A.I.  Strike, W.E. Burns and S.G.  Blankinship.  Mr. Paradis was engaged as  resident   manager.    The   mill  started up in April 1951, with  a goodly number of the same  employees who had been with  it previously. Before the mill  opened,  Sandwell & Company  of Vancouver wa�� engaged as  consultant for modernizing the  mill and  expanding it to  173  tons   production per  day.   An  extensive   rebuilding program,  mainly by B.C. Bridge & Dredg  ing Company went on  simultaneously with the  operations  for several years. The mill was  virtually completely rebuilt.  Mr. D.F. Williamson, formerly project engineer for Sand-  well & Company on the Port  Mellon project, wasi engaged  as operating manager in 1953,  returning to Sandwell & Company in 1956. Mr. Paradis became manager of the Hudson  Pulp & Paper Company mill at  Palatka, Florida. Mr. E.C. Sherman, previously of the Port  Townsend, Washington, mill of  Crown Zellerbach Corporation  came to Port Mellon as pulpmill superintendent. Mr. C.B.  Davies joined Port Mellon as  resident manager in 1956, from  John Inglis & Company and  several well-known pulp and  paper mills in Eastern Canada.  In    October,     1953,     Howe  Sound 'Pulp Company Limited  changed its name to Canadian  Forest Products Ltd., and the  ii-terests of Perkinsi-Goodwin  Co., and the Sorg Paper Company were bought out by the  majority interest. Port Mellon  became the Howe Sound Pulp  Division of Canadian Forest  Products Ltd.  Directors and officers of  Canadian Forest Products Ltd.  are: J.G. Prentice, president;  L.L.G. Bentley, vice-president;  Wm. McMahan, vice-president;  Russell Mills, H.V. Whittall,  A.E. Strike, S.G. Blankinship,  W.S. Burns, directors, CM. Edward, secretary, R.B. Bentley,  treasurer and assistant secretary, and E. Linder, assistant  secretary.  Mr. William McMahan directs the Pulp Division. Manager of the Capilano Timber Company in Vancouver before he  joined Canadian Forest Products, Mr. McMahan was the  subject of a "Prominent Men  in the Industry" review in the  "���Pulp & Paper Magazine of  Canada" during 1953.  Messrs. Mills and Whittall  manage the Englewood and  Hunting-Merritt Divisions respectively. Mr. Burns is general sales manager of Pacific  Veneer and Plywood Division.  Authorized capital of the company is $3,500,000 divided into  28,320 non-cumulative redeemable preferred shares of $100  each and 6,680 common shares  of $100 each.  The pulpmill's chip supply  has, from the start in 1951,  been integrated with the operations"   of  the  Eburne   Saw  mills Division. In more recent  years chips from the PacifiG  Veneer division and from other  sawmills) up the Fraser River  have entered the picture to a  certain extent as production  has grown at Port Mellon.  During the last several years  a further steady, but less spectacular expansion, has been going on at the pulpmill. The  completion of the road link between Port Mellon and Gibsons Landing in 1954 has been  a lasting boon to the community.

Keats cove park  for this year  Continued expansion of the  provincial parks program, with  special emphasis on development  in the north and a broadening  of the program of fish and game  management were forecast by  the Hon. Earle C Westwood,  minister of recreation and conservation, speaking in the legislature.  The marine park program begun last year will be expanded  and new sites will be completed  at Montague Harbour on Galianp  Island, Tent Island near Chemainus and Plumper's Cove on  Keats Island. Mr. Westwood declared the small boat population  of the province is how over 60,-  000 vessels and the need for  more marina picnic and campsites was increasing rapidly.  The minister quoted figures to  show the increase in park use  during the past ten years and  said that in 1948 116,000 people  visited- provincial parks^-During  1958 the figure will exceed 2,-  400,000 visitors, he said. B.C.  parks now comprise 8,417,985  acres divided amuig 126 parks.  During 1958 camping facilities  were increased by 26 percent  "butjuse increased by 50 percent,  he declared.
