COURTEOUS SERVICE  The Thrill That Comes Once in a Ufedme AvnxsreslaM&e     i  young fry fish derby  startles Hopkins shiners  By MARGARET  J.   HUNTER  The sound of .Eric Thomson's^  bagpipes brought -to a close8 the  third Annual Fishing Derby at  Hopkins  Landing on Aug. 22.  ."Ehe Shiner''Derby was open to,  all residents of Hopkins under  ���six years of age. Winners were:  Nancy Brant with th�� most  sShiiners, Bob Davis with the  second moist and. John Hopkins  with the third most. Young  Bobby Hopkins came av/ay with  the prize for the tiniest shiner.  The Fishing Derby was open  to all residents between the ages  of six and 18. ,  European  tour by air  It was quite a trip, but Dr.  and, Mrs. Hugh Inglis of Gibsons journeyed their way' ac-  ��qa3 the Polar route to Scotland and from there covered  a considerable portion of Europe.  They left Gibsons about July  16 and flew CPA to Edinburgh  where they were guests of the  Canadian Medical Association  at a meeting with the British  Medical Association. This lasted five days. They then moved  down to London for four days,  Paris for two days then on to  Nice where they took the bus  along the Riviera to Genoa.  Overnight they spent in Milan  then had two fine days in Venice.  Heading northward they  moved into the Innscruck and  Lucerne country where they  meandered for a while then  took the boat trip along the  Rhine, taking in Brussells as a  side trip and winding up the  European tour  at Amsterdam.  Both the doctor and. Mrs.  Inglis report a wonderful trip  and the doctor who took many  photos en route is awaiting  their arrival in Gibsons. They  returned home on August 25.  WINNS  ON HOLIDAY  Mr. and Mrs. Harry Winn,  the former telephone representatives for this area have left  on a vacation which will take  them into the interior of British Columbia.  Barbara Dawson caught the  heaviest salmon; Eleanor Hopkins caught the most fish and  Libby Hopkins caught the second;  heaviest fish; Rusty Harrison  came away with the prizes for  the smallest fish and the strangest fish.  After luncheon the children  from seven to eighteen entered  dinghy and swimming races, also diving and driftwood competition for points.  The prizes were given out by  Mrs. Florence Hopkins to the  following for collecting the most  points  in  their  age   groups:  Mark Elworthy and Libby  Hopkins,  7-9   years.  Ron Hunter and Eleanor Hop-  kis, 10-12 years.  Dave 'Skidmore and Helen  Smith, 13-14 years.  Hamish Donaldson and Elizat  Ibeth Carson, 15-18.  The Suntan and Freckle contests were won by Dave Trent  and  Ron   Hunter respectively.  Mrs. Chutter took ^ the first  prize for the ladies nail driving,  wiliile Mrs. Smith took home the  rubber hammer as the booby  prize.  After supper the spectators  gathered on the wharf to watch  speed boat races. John Carson,  Jr's, boat was the winner in the  18 H.P. and under class and Don  Crombie and Tom Helina did  their stuff in the open race.  John Carson, sr., showed he  was the better sailor by sailing  around Shelter Islands and  back.  Men's tug-o-war was won by  the north end of Hopkins with  Tom Hopkins as captain.  The most interesting events  of the day .were the relay swimming races. North Hopkins won  the v 12 and under class with,  Diane Hopkins as the captain.  In the 13 and up class, Soames  Point challenged Hopkins, and  Hopkins came home in the lead  with Gail Hunter as captain.  To have a day as successful as  ^his, there is a lot of thanks due  to many people including John*,  Cairson for leading a wonderful  ising song and also to Mr. and.  Mrs. Hamner of the Hopkins  Landing store for donating the  Ihot dogs, pop and coffee that  everyone enjoyed in the Community hall.  The day ended with the teenagers having a dance in the hall.  Work parties have been busy  laying cement blocks on the  North Road fire hall and have  nearly completed the walls. A  fine co-operative spirit is reported by members of Volunteer Fire Services and required  help has made itself available  when needed.  Special thanks go to Syd  Smales, local bricklayer who  headed a work party and offered his expert advice on how to  get the job done. Universal  Timber also donated a truck  and loader operated by Bruce  Campbell to haul fill. Dal  Triggs also donated a day's  work hauling fill to the new  hall in his truck.  Others who have helped out  include Ernie Reitze, Jim Lock-  hart, Alf Winn, Eric Cooper,  Bill McAfee, George Weal,  Bill Wright, Bob Barnes, Len  Phare and Ace Lefler.  Sunday's bush fire on the  Headlands bluff was quickly  brough under control. Two  trucks responded, one a tank  truck owing to there being no  water supply on the mound.  The firemen at the time were  getting ready for the swim  meet at the Municipal float  3 drown  Up to press time no word  had reached Sechelt RCMP of  the finding of any of the three  bodies of a man and his two  sons who were apparently  drowned Aug. 28 in the vicinity of Egmont, near Earls Cove  The victims were William  Marshall, 50 and his two sons  William, 8 and Donald, 7. They  left "Egmont wharf in a 10 foot  outboard .motor^ /boat . laden;  with cedar shakes. They were  to be taken to a home Mr, Marshall was building about a  mile from Egmont.  Where this mishap occurred  is not far from the Skookum-  chuck where the tide race creates continuously disturbed water. RCMP and local searchers  have so far found no trace of  the trio. Besides the mother.  Mrs. Marjorie Marshall, there  is a daughter Francis, 10 and  another son Calvin, 4.  $300 to  Library  Gibsons Public Library Association has just received a  grant of $300 from the Public  Library  Commission.

The money will be used to  help in meeting the ever-increasing demand for books.  Castaway party at Redroofs  By PAT WELSH  The annual costume Castaway party held by Redroofs  Beach and Country Club was a  delightful affair on the night  of August 29.  It was divided in three divisions this year, the small fry,  teeners and adults. The small  fry gathered at the home of  Mr. and Mrs. A. Jackson from  7 to 8 p.m., danced, enjoyed  games, drank pop, devoured  doughnuts and made merry.  First prize winner for the  most original dress went to  Tove Hansen who was a delight  ful Spanish Lady with her hair  in a chignon bound with  pearls, a red bow with long  streamers on her head. Her  gown, floor length, was in tiers  of red, black and white with  a laced tight bodice.  Chinese gentlemen and Japanese   ladies  danced  together,  and small Indians with bows  and arrows whooped and did  a war dance. Another small  girl was a memoer of the Fire  Brigade and brought her dog  along dressed in red polka  dots applied with hair lacquer.  The young fry had a ball.  The teeners met at the home  of Mr. and Mrs. T. Cruise. Ju-S  lie Pearson won first prize as  a fireman, there were pirates,  clowns, and bathing beauties,  frogmen and brigands. All  danced and made merry, making a most attractive picture.  After refreshments they continued their merry making at  verious homes.  The grownups met at the  home of Mrs. W. Dix, who was  unavoidably absent. Mr. and  Mrs. Howard Cleveland were  host and hostess and greeted  the guests. This was a gay assembly, and showed wonderful  ingenuity in ideas. Mrs. Chris  Taylor was a sea maiden draped in fish nets adorned with  corks;, flashers, lures and star  fish which won her first prize.  Annie Oakley complete with  gun was dancing with an Indian .chief, one of the belles of  St. Triniaris made her appearance in a pleated white brief  skirt, sweater and blazer, her  two long blonde braids down  her back. She, or rather he,  turned out to be Ross McAllister behind a mask.  There were hula girls, ballerinas and fire belles. The whole  Pearson family came as firemen. Herbert Hunt, Sr., won  the men's most original costume, he was Mephistophilies.  It was an enjoyable party  for the windup of the summer  season. Dancing was enjoyed  and games. Refreshments were  served on the patio lit with  torches, which added to the  enchanted scene.  .School opens on Sept. 8,  which will be next Tuesday.  It'imeans the end of a glorious  suimmer holiday for the children and they certainly had  the weather in their favor this  year.  "Here is a list of the teachers for the various schools un-  deh jurisdiction of Sechelt  School  District No. 46:  Elphinstone Jr.-Sr. High: Mr.  W.S. Potter, principal.

Fallows, li-  igns name  Gibsons sts-  Gibsons streets now carry  signs bearing names of streets  on which they stand.  These name plates have been  scattered around the village  in order to make it easier for  people, specifically strangers,  to find their way about.  Gibsons Village commission  era have worked on this idea  for some weeks, realizing the  village population was increasing "*< and more homes being  built. As a result more people  were putting pressure on the  village commission to have  iomething done to make it easier to identify locations.  Before purchasing the signs  the] ^commissioners examined  vaiTcJus ~;makes *"bf '"'street "signs''  and found a style they thought  suitable, it was explained at  Tuesday  night's  meeing.  Actually 50 were purchased  at a cost of $473.54. They were  erected under direction of Fred  Holland of the municipal  works department.  Another item concerning the  municipality was the painting  of the Municipal Hall by John  Melhus at a cost of $123.50.  A letter from a local trucker explained that in future $6  an hour would be charged for  use of the truck and driver instead of $5, the rate at present  in force. The commissioners  noted the letter said increasing costs caused the need for  an increase. Contents of the  letter were noted for future  reference.  Accounts totalling $3,499.19  were scrutinized and ordered  paid. Water costs absorbed  $2,855.57; roads, $351.34 and  general  $292.28.  The next meeting of the commission will be held Sept. 22  to allow commissioners to attend the B.C. Municipalities  convention in Kelowna.  Council was informed various businessmen were delinquent in payment of business  tax and that the matter was  being checked for future action  invention will  aid  motorist  An invention which should  have a wide-appeal to motorists  has been produced on the Sunshine Coast and should soon  be on the market.

Ballet classes  School sessions will be underway Sept. 9 and so that aspiring dance students need  wait no further to begin their  fall term Miss Anne Gordon  will re-open her Ballet Academy the same day.

After this, kinder  garten pupils meet a 2, and  progressively through the afternoon, other classes of young  people work by grade. Some  changes may take place in  times of classes, but unless  otherwise informed, students  will come to class at the same  times as last year, on the first  day.  For information about enrolling in Miss Gordon's classes, about equipment, or about  the newly formed Women's  Auxiliary to the Dance School  those who are interested may  phone   Gibsons 370F.  What smiles do!  It happened on the CPR Prin  cess Pat on a trip to Victoria.  Mr. and Mrs. Mel Usher were  wandering about the boat looking for some people to talk to  and came across two visitors  from the United States, Col.  A.M. and Mrs. Gruhl and struck  up an acquaintance with them.  This happened in 1954 when  the Ushers were on a 19th wedding anniversary trip and the  Gruhls on their 30th wedding  anniversary trip.  A few days ago the Gruhls  journeyed to Gibsons to meet  the Ushers so they could celebrate their 24th for the Usher-:  and the 35th for the Gruhls,  wedding anniversary.  Mr. Gruhl who hails from  Racine, Wisconsin, has done  considerable work among Boy  Scouts in hi? area and was a  ranking official in the Boy  Scouts of America.  PRIZES  It was a great day for the  younger fry Saturday when,  the postponed July 1 water  sports were run off. Members  of the Volunteer Fire Services  were in command and handled  the afternoon events in fine  style.  Mrs. Norman Geoghegan and  Mr. L. Wray were judges of  racing and diving, also the  other events. Highlight of the  afternoon for those hundreds  seated on the bank overlooking  the Municipal floats were thfc  greasy pole event and the log  rolling.  Merchants who donated prizes for the various events were:  Sunny crest Motors, Super-  Valu, Ron Haig, Totem Realty,  Gibsons Hardware, Gibsons  Meat Market, Shell Oil Service  Station, Steer Inn, Gibsons  Loggers, and Sportsmen's Supply, Lang's Drugs, Marine  Men's Wear and Graham Barber Shop.  The large numbers of smaller fry taking part in the swim  events surprised officials in  busy lining up contestants and  in some events there were as  many as 13 in the lineup.  Keeping the floats clear of  spectators gave officials a  chance to run off the events  without delay. While tlie greasy pole was spectacu.ar with  various contestants gyrating towards the water with tlie  greatest of ease. It was felt the  log rollers got off too easy and  a two-out-of-three test should  have been arranged to allow  for better competition and  more thrills. Some contestants  were not on the logs after their  start, i'cr more than several  seconds. They could at least  have had a warm-up test before  ���-��� competing. Tf* W6uldr "also have  pleased many of the spectators  if tne barefoot youngsters were  in a class of their own with  the caulk-boo^ed contestants doing their stuff in more professional manner. '   :  However, the afternoon was  well spent and resulted in some  fine swimming races. It was a  good start for next year's bigger and better event which is  already being considered in  the paper stage at any rate.  Here are the results of the  various events:  Girls under 8, Marilyn Hopkins,  Patsy Feeney.  Boys under 8, Ronnie Evans,  Malcolm Winn.  Girls, 8 and 9, Nelie Johnson,  Libby Hopkins.

Community spirit  Sunday's swim meet at the Municipal dock revealed two  important things, the result of the Kinsmen club effort to teach  children to swim and the desire of Gibsons merchants to help  along a community effort by donating the required prizes.  Sunday's event replaced the one postponed July 1 when  a sudden heavy rain forced abandonment of the program. Since  then the Volunteer Fire Services members, generally known as  the fire department, kept their July 1 organization intact and  were able to go ahead two months later with the original program.  It goes to show what can be done with organized deter-  saination. That determination, besides being shown in the effort  to give the youngsters their big day, was also shown in the handling of the afternoon's events. The floats were kept clear of persons who were less in the way when on shore. This helped speed  the handling of the numerous races, diving competitions, log  rolling and a greasy pole competition. It showed what determined organization can do.  That same determination can be utilized sometime in the  future. It is hoped soon it will be possible to organize a Gibsons  Booster club which will be an organization to handle all major  ���events of the district with the support of all organized bodies.  Its possibilities were revealed during operations leading  to the July 1 celebration when with little time available the Legion executive was able to line up a good assortment of events  for July 1.  If it has not been said before in these columns it will be  said now and that is the July 1 celebration organization was the  smoothest event the editor of this paper has ever been connected  with in Gibsons. This organization should be maintained for future events. It should be the focal point of any celebration or ma.  jor event Gibsons will put on in the years to come.  So Gibsonites should be alert for the formation of the  Gibsons Booster club and give it their full and hearty support.  Gibsons can do with a central organization which can call on  any other organization to help out at specific times on a specific  job.  Formation of such a club will do away with the usual leave  it to George attitude. The club which should have on its exec-  ntive members from all other organizations will be able to mus-  ��r strength when and where needed. Think it over, and when the  call is made for formation of the club, be Johnny-on-the-spot  and help make Gibsons a real community-minded place.  The stay - at - homes  Holiday times are especially invigorating for those who  are not holidaying. The stay-at-home, work-all-day husband,  whose family is at the cottage, is expected to perform many new  tasks, such as feeding himself, washing the dishes and making  Ms bed. Tf he measures up to these assignments he may find a  aew interest in life around the home. Even dodging work is apt  to stir his mind, as though improvising labor-saving devices such,  as putting the frying pan in the refrigerator after breakfast, instead of washing it. Such great inventions] give a man a fresh  sparkle, though the refrigerator may get dingy.  Down at the office, the holiday season offers like interests. Some of the work of those on holidays may turn out to be  accessary after all, even though the holidayers had been considered unnecessary. Doing their jobs is a challenge, A portly executive finds himself forced to wrap a parcel and look up the  correct address to put on it. This leads him into discovering the  files, a labyrinthine area of the offices where he begins to understand something of the frustrations and excitements of explorers.  The late-afternoon when he types a letter all by himself, finding  the paper, carbons, envelope and an old stickumleas stamp ���  ���Shis experience grows extra knobs on his brain and makes him  a better man. Holidays are invigorating. ��� The Printed Word.

Travellers in print  People who travel on buses  ae matter what part of the  world it might be do not realize they mignt become the  subject of somebody's article  :3q a periodical. That is just  what happened to Eric Thomson and his wife while travelling in Scotland last year.  A young woman by the name  of R.A. Ross had an article  published in the Scots Magazine and in it she wrote: Last  vear   there   was   a    Canadian  lawyer who had come home to  see the little farm he had just  inherited in the Orkneys.  "Keeping it?" he said, "I am  indeed!" It had been in his  family for some hundreds of  years. His wife, though nearly  40 years in Canada, still spoke  with the native tongue of her  native   Scotland.  Mr. Thomson remembers the  incident and also has a copy  of the magazine containing the  article.  An observation post on the Armistice Demarcation .Line  ��� in the distance (on right) can be seen another post. Since 1956,  when the United Nations Emergency Force (UNEF) was created,  a constant vigil has been kept along this line. The 5,500 men now  forming this unique army come from Brazil, Canada, India, Norway, Sweden and Yugoslavia.  Johnston Twins on leave  in Britain not Norway  Ronald and Roger Johnston,  twin sons of Magistrate and  Mrs. Johnston of Sechelt in  their correspondence home report they are standing by ready  for a three leave to Norway.  In the same letter Roger reports he is now a foster-parent  having "adopted" an orphan  girl in Greece. The expense involved, he writes, is $15 a  month and he writes "so far I  am enjoying it immensely."  The girl is Vassiiliki Tomba, 11,  in grade four and her favorite  subjects are history and religion. Her father died of cancer  in 1955 leaving two sisters and  a mother with a monthly income of $10 with 20 sheep and  four goats.  Roger also reports his recent  trip to visit holy places in vicinity of Jerusalem has, helped him stimulate a deeper and  increased study in his working  knowledge   of   scripture.  Judging from the ��pace gap  in letters covering almost a  month something must have occurred and the next letter reveals the Norway trip had to  be cancelled so instead both  lads took leave in England  where they spent two weeks,  making the Union Jack club in  London their headquarters.  About this time came a series  of postcards, some of them photographs such as one showing  one of the twins feeding pigeons at Trafalgar square, Nelson's monument, Tower bridge  with a freighter passing  through, a bobby on duty at  Ludgate Hill, the Horse Guard  sentries at Whitehall, among  ohers.  In London they visited Buckingham 'Palace, the Mall, Pall  Mall, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Square, Regent Street,  Hyde Park, House of Commons  "Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's,  Madame Tussauds, and many  ether places usually visited by  the hurrying tourist.  The first letter from back-in  Gaza explained the trip to England proved highly interesting  and was a great change from  the local (Gaza) scene. Leaving  London, they toured some of  the countryside after takingjin  the usual changing of the guard  and other military scenes.  The correspondence revealed  the fact the lads would have a  JTFLE  CflEISTIAN  ? Science:'''  MfoNITOR.

On this leave they  hope to get to Norway and are  trying to arrange to have the  leave time start when they land  in England instead of when  they leave Gaza. This would  give them a longer period for  visiting   outside   England.  Roger reports that after being in Rajah for an eight month  period he is leaving to join  a signals detachment at an oasis named Dier El Belah. This  he regards as a pleasant location and a welcome change.  The boys also write about  the possibilities of leave to  Canada some time in October  which might be coupled with  their leave to Norway. Judging  from comments on the expectation of leave the members of  UNEF on the Gaza are like all  other troops, always looking  forward to their next leave,  particularly when it will be in  one's  home land.

It's the B of M Personal Chequing Account,  available at the Gibsons Branch.  Personal chequing accounts are economical to operate.  You pay nothing in advance for your cheque-book, the service  charge is only ten cents a cheque. And there's no charge for  ���deposits to your account as there is with a current account in  which there's a charge (Df ten cents for eachi entry.  With a b of M personal chequing account, you receive a  quarterly statement, instead of ,a passbook. And your cancelled  cheques, /which aire held by the bank for 20 years, are* readily  available to provide the best possible receipt for the bills you've  paid.
