There will be commercial displays by B.C. Electric, Gibsons Hardware, Penin-  . sula TV, Coast News and  others; who are entering their  displays when available.  One of the highlights of this  year's fair will be. something  out of "the ordinary "in* ari "entry  from Pender Harbour by Mr.  and Mrs. Peter Trappitt. It is  in sections and one will be an  aerial view of down-town Vancouver and the North Shore  embroidered on a nylon plastic fabric. The other exhibit  will be a scale aerial view of  Pender Harbour area, also embroidered. It is the first time  anything of this type has been  exhibited at the Sunshine Coast  Fall Fair and it is expected to  attract considerable attention.  Junior exhibits are expected  to be above average according  to those close to the junkl's in  their garden work. There will  also be nine head of cattle to  be judged, due largely to efforts of the Kiwanis club in  sponsoring the  Calf Club.  Among the added prizes obtained for this year's.

The donkey will be a member of the parade and it will be  bis first experience. The donkey's name is Pompelong an,d  there are those" persons wonder  ing what the donkey will  think of the efforts of Piper  Thomson on the bagpipes.

Lumber  company which was regarded in  those days as a high-ball outfit.  Before then he had sailed on  schooners and held papers as  a marine captain. Mr. Giersh  knew considerable about the  coastal waters.  It was when he teamed up  with a man named Al Smith  that he went into logging and  moved upcoast to Campbell River area where Smith was a  faller and piler and Mr. Giersh.  a loader.

Tlie main event of the evening was* a barbecue oni the sun *  deck in frcnt of .Mr. Roy's waterfront studio. While Mr? Roy  prepared steaks over the fire,  Mir.f Rita Bracewell and the  gueshs amused themselves by  fishing for rock cod from the  rail *|of the sun deck.  The foreign guests were able  to demonstrate their ability to  ties-the western style knife and  fork*? when they sat down to  salad and hot rolls, steak and  a choice of rhubarb or boysan-  berr'y pie baked by Mrs, Roy.

This affair was the last event  in a busy week of activities,  which terminated on Friday  evening when the B.C. delegates "and their guests boarded  the C.P.R. and C.N.R. trains  for the east.  WATCH  FOUND  If someone lost a wrist watch  in vicinity of the Municipal  hall on Tuesday of this week,  it is resting at the Coast News  office. It was found by Eric  Thomson of Hopkins Landing  while on his way into Gibsons  on business.  Vocalist Sylvia Murphy, singing  star of CBC TV's Music Makers  '59, has signed a two-year contract with the CBC covering the  next two television seasons. Sylvia is married to television interviewer and commentator  Charles Templeton.  The following is a report  jn the sports fishing in the  area for the period ending Aug  4:  Pender Harbour: Fishing has  picked up in this area with a  run of coho and gril.3 moving  in and around Pender Harbour  and Egmont. Fair to good fishing mostly after 6 p.m. gave  fishermen better than one fish  .per beat as an average. Springs  weighed in at four to 26  pounds and coho one to six  pounds. Rough weather on Sunday reduced fishing effort considerably.  Peers family  foster parents  Mr. and Mrs. W.G. Peers of  Gibsons have undertaken to  help support an 11 year old  Vietnamese boy, Pham Van  Hoa under the Foster Parents  Plan. This is an association that  arranges for people in the United States and Canada to adopt  children of Europe and Asia  who have been left orphans.  Pham Van Hoa is living with  his mother, grandmother and  four brothers and sisters in a  leaky hut furnished with one  wooden bed and a trunk. The  grandmother sells cooked bananas, earning about nine cents  a day and the mother sells boiled sweet potatoes-, earning  about 20 cents a day. This is  not very much on which to  feed a family and she is sending Hoa to school as well,  which costs mere money. The  family is also in debt for the  funeral of Hoa's step-father  and there is no way to pay off  the debt. Under the Foster Parents Plan, Hoa's family will  receive eight dollars a month  rnd supplies of food and new  clothing as well as medical  care.  Anyone interested in this organization can get information  by writing to Foster Parents  Plan Inc., Box 65, Station "B",  Montreal, P. Que.

Within two days after publication of new numbers last  week because the previous  number**, produced- no results,  two claimants stepped forth.  The Mixmaster was won by  Mrs. C.E. Tretheway of Knuts-  ford, B.C. with program ticket  No. 58. Mrs. Tretheway is a  daughter-in-law of Mrs Clare  Chamberlin.  The first prize on the queen  ballots, a transistor radio was  won by Mrs. Marie Clark of  Gibsons who held No. 1111. If  the *73cond prize, the movie  camera, is not claimed soon,  another number will be drawn  by the committee.  Seckelt OA P  meets Aug. 17  The Sechelt O.A.P. branch  will meet in the Canadian Legion hall, Tuesday afternoon,  Aug. 17 at 2 p.m.  This meeting is important as  a full slate of officers will be  elected for the coming winter  session.  Legion Branch 140, Sechelt,  has donated its premises for  this occasion. A full turnout of  members.as well as propective  members and friends is desired to give the new season a  good sendoff.  -icing plugs. Two spr.np'r per  boat, ranging in weight from  live to 33 pounds, was the average, while coho landed averaged four and a hali pounds.  On Sunday, rough weather hit  tbe fishing effort and most  boats remained in harbour.  Upper Howe Sound and Britannia Beach: strong winds and  choppy water conditions allowed only fair fishing returns on  Sunday. The successful fishermen were out in the early  morning using plugs which  landed ��spring ranging in  weight from five to 45 pounds,  jacks three to five pounds.  Fishing earlier in the week was  for springs, fair, but indications are that this run of large  springs appears to be tapering  off; A few pinks averaging  five pounds were predominant  in the Lower Howe Sound area  but overall fishing was restricted by unstable weather.  The big water sports will  take place Sunday, August 30.  It will be the event to replace the unfinished events  slated for July 1 which were  cancelled because of rain. It  will be held at the Municipal  dock.  A more interesting program  has been lined up by the July  committee which will not  only have swimming races for  ages from under eight to 15  years and over. There will be  greasy pole events, log rolling^  power boat racing including  inboard boat races and water  skiing. Other specialties may  also be lined up by the July  1 committee in charge.  In order to ascertain how  many power boats and what  classes they could fall into,  th.c-r.ia desiring to enter such  races are asked to leave their  names at the Coast News office  along with the horsepower of  the motor on their boat.  Merchants of the area have  shown considerable interest in  the re-organization of a regatta  and regard this year's event as  a forerunner of a b-gger and  better organized regatta for  next year.  Members   of   the   committee  in    charge   cf   organizing    the  prize list report little   trouble  in getting support. To date the  folloing prizes  havs  been  put  up by mcchan's Marine Men's  Wear,    baching    suit;     Totem  Realty, $10: Gibsons Hardware  $10; Sunco Electric, deck lomp;  Lang's    Drug   Store,    snorkel  twin,   set;   Shell   Service   Station,  free  grer,** ?   job:  Gibsons  Loggers' and SportcrnenT Supplies,   skin   diving   equipment;  A   Vancouver   firm   will   also  make a donation; Anonymous,  $10; Gibsons. Meat Market, $10  Other merchants will be invited to help in the next v/eek  or so and it is expected there  will be a good prize list available which should attract some  good  quality competition.  Cpt. Harvey  pioneer  Hard times dance  The IWA welfare committee  announces a Hard Times dance  for Friday, August 14 to augment strike funds.  The dance will be held in  Madeira Park Community hall  commencing at 10 p.m. There  will be prizes for hard times  costumes and fines for those  regarded as being best dressed.  GARDEN PARTY  Th annual garden party and  sale held recently by St. Aidan's W.A. at the attractive  home of Mr. and Mrs. Cumming was an unqualified success. Thanks to the kind cooperation of the weatherman,  the host and hostess and all  other helpers, the day was perfect.  One of Roberts Creek's most  colorful pioneers, Captain James  Harvey, M.M., died on July 9th  at the age of 91. He was the  oldest resident of Hycroft Veterans Home.  He was born in Hamilton, Ont.,  and educated in Upper Canada  College. He played with the  Hamilton Tigers football team  when they won the Domlnion  champTonship.  For two years, after coming  to Vancouver in 1890, he sailed  full-rigged ships.  When war broke out in 1914  he joined the 29th Battalion and  went overseas with Tobin's Tigers. Wounded in France he returned home in 1916 and spent  the next two years instructing at  Hastings Park. At that time the  doctors had given him but two  years to live.  In the summer of 1919 ho  bought the Craft property, and  with Mrs. Harvey and daughter  Pat, arrived to take up farming.  This he did with his usual enthusiasm and . the place was  stocked with every known  species of animal and fowl. The  Captain practiced army discipline in his daily living and when  he summoned the goats to be  milked and ordered them to  "fall in" in a voice that could be  heard for miles, they fell in and  marched smartly to the milking  shed.  Whether it was the quiet of  country life or just the captain's  ���zest for living, he fooled the  medics and went on farming  until some time after his wife's  death in 1942, when he moved  to Hycroft. There he made a  host of friends among staff and  residents. He leaves His daughter, Mrs.. F.. B. Fellowes; (Pat),  grandchildren.

A changing skyline  Skyline contours in Gibsons area reveal signs of progress,  a progress which some like and others put up with because there  is nothing else theyi can do.  Gibsons area and in fact the entire Sunshine Coast is being discovered by many people because the area has a reputation  second to none on the coast of British Columbia.  The Headlands sizeable mound is also showing signs of a  skyline change with the cutting out of roads and clearing of parts  in preparation for a real estate venture. Its virgin aspect has gone  as the result of bull-dozers and other road equipment having invaded the area.  The skyline is also changing along the Sunshine Coast  highway with the entry of new business and the clearing of land  for future development. When the road from Langdale" connecting with Black Ball Ferries eliminates the necessity of traffic  climbing the Granthams Hill by heading inland at Langdale, further territory will be opened up and another change to the skyline will occur.  One can sympathize with the old-timers who discovered  this area so many years ago and lived a life of splendid isolation  until Black Ball Ferries invaded. They can be congratulated on  their choice of a place in which to settle. At the same time they  should not fe^.l put out because other people are finding the area  suitable, too.  Progress has a way of invading people's privacy and the  only thing the people involved can do is make the best of the situation. The whole area is due for a steady expansion for several  years to come so any thoughts of continuation of what was splendid isolation must be forgotten. Those people moving in and building fine homes will feel sorry for those who are losing their privacy but will at the same time feel quite happy over the fact they  have decided to settle here.  Limelight on your butcher  It is not often that butchers and meat eaters are the subject of an editorial but the opportunity has arisen as the result  of a table presented iri the annual financial report of Canada  Packers Limited. This opportunity is contained in some figures  on the back page and these figures are of interest to butchers  and meat eaters alike.  Did you know that in 1958 the per capita consumption of  meat and poultry totalled 164.7 pounds of which 138.1 was meat  and 26.6 pounds were poultry. Perhaps your butcher can take  pencil and paper and see whether his customers* are below or  above average.  According to calculation this figure of 164.7 pounds a year is  less than half-a-pound a day. An actual half-pound daily would  total 182.5 pounds based on a 365 day year.  Digging back into the Canada Packer statistics it reveals  the low consumption years were during the dirtyj Thirties when  the actual low was 1931 with 122.9 pounds per person. The high  years on a per capita basis were 1956 and 1957 both at 168.5  pounds, the only difference in the two years was a fractional decrease in meat going to poultry occurred in 1957. Poultry has  taken a further increase as a meat judging from the 1958 figures  which saw meat drop from 142.6 pounds in 1957 to 138.1 pounds  in 1958 with an increase in poultry from 25.9 to 26.6 pounds per  person.  Canned meats have taken odd jumps since 1952 which was  the high year, 7.5 pounds per person to a low of-4.2 pounds in  1955. For 1958 the figure was 5.2.  As was stated in tlie opening sentence it is not often we  can get the butcher in the editorial column.? but here he is now  and your butcher can take a bow along with his meat-eating  clients.  Feeling supplants reason  It's amazing how few people really think, how few know  anything about logic. Most people think they think when actually they) are only rearranging their prejudices. As a result, feeling  has supplanted reason, and people merely use their intelligence  to justify their emotions.  Real freedom is within ourselves. If we can obtain an objective view of ourselves and rise above our daily pettiness, we  can solve our problems. ��� Vincent C. Donovan, Irish Digest.  HI BALL WITH  to and from  >UVER I!

It referred to the terminus  of any particular railway. Inuring the period of greatest rail  activity, a place was often only  quite temporarily the epd | of  steel. '���������  I  Who Was The First Woman K.C.  In The Commonwealth?  Helen Alice Kinnear. Judge  Kinnear was born in Cayuga,  Ont., and was called to the Ontario bar in 1920. When she was  appointed a King's Counsel in  1934, she became the first woman in the Commonwealth to  receive this honor. In 1934 she  achieved another first. On her  appointment as county court  judge for Haldimand in that  year, she became the first woman  in the Commonwealth to be appointed to a county court bench.  She had previously appeared as  rcou/nsel before the Supreme  Court of Canada, the first woman to do so.  What Is  The  Skunk Blackbird?  The bobolink. It is often called skunk blackbird because the  summer plumage of the male is  black with white in the back.  The female closely resembles a  large sparrow. The male bobolink is noted as a remarkable  singer. Bobolinks are found in  meadows and hayfields and are  commoner in Eastern Canada  than, in the Western Provinces.  They winter as far south as  southern Brazil.  Gas in B.C.  British Columbia has recorded some tremendous gas discoveries during the past year,  Dr. George S. Hume, formerly  director general of Scientific  Services, Department of M/ies,  Ottawa, and one of Canada's  leading geologists told the annual meeting of Westcoast  Transmission Company Limited in Vancouver.  The discovery rate in the entire western sedimentary basin  has convinced even the most  sceptical that this is an area  capable of producing tremendous quantities of gas and oil  he said.  Indications now are that  British Columbia may have  reserves in excess of 60 trillion  cubic feet of natural gas, while  further large reserves may lie  to the north. Although prosi-  pecting for oil and gas in B.C.  is comparatively recent, leading geologists already^ feel that  reserves may total at least half  that of Alberta where the petroleum industry has been under development for many  years.  there is not enough material for  such a large operation. On the  other hand it will be argued  that there is far too much activity for simply installing an oil  heater.  As for the playroom idea, the  question will be raised as to the  need for it since the owners of  the house are not the playroom  type or have no children of playroom age.  *    *    *  OWNERS of the house could  of course, be asked the direct  question. But that would smack  of prying into the affairs of  others. As all hands keep watch  in hopes of solving the mystery,  water on the range will boil  away, valuable food will burn  and stick to pans. Darning and  mending will not get done and.  letters will go unwritten.  When house owners undertake  repairs, why will they not, like  professional builders, erect a  sign announcing the nature and  dimensions of the project? By  showing this little thoughtful-  ness consider the abundance of  their neighbors' time they would  save.  Guaranteed Watch &  Jewelry Repairs  Chris* Jewelers  Mail Orders Given Prompt  Attention  Work done on the Premises  Phone Sechelt 96  Editor:  I am not in the habit of writing to papers but your editorial in July 30 Coast News was  of particular interest to me and  I believe it rates a few comments.  Now Mr. Editor I can take  you back, yes way back before  the First War when the Wob-  blies were going strong, and  have been active in union activities until I came here to  the Sunshine Coast to retire  and forget the whole thing. As  you say it would take a book  to follow the labor situation  back from the nineteen hundreds  However,   here   are   a   few  facts that led to the first unrest in the woods, not a question of wages, but general conditions:   Log  bunkhouses  that  stunk to high heaven, from 50  to 100 men crammed into one  large    building,     dirty    socks  draped   out  around  the  stove  to   dry   out   and   stink,   three  deck  bunks   (all  muzzle  loaders) filled with spruce boughs  or dirty hay and so lousy you  had to stake your pants down  at  night  to   keep   them   until  morning.   The   food?    Call   it  what you like, was mostly) the  little   white   bean,   sow   belly  in slabs six feet long and don't  forget the lowly prune and dehydrated  apples. Now here is  something for the present day  logger to think about.   Wages  in a big  camp of the  Finger  Lumber  Co. at Le Pas, Man.,  were   $15   to  $26 per  month;  $15  for jumpers,  $26 for  the  ones that stayed  through and  made  the   river   drive  in the  spring.  Pitch  pine torches on  the landing so as to see to get  your 14 hours in. Those were  the  good   old  days??  Well, along came the Wob-  blies, then the O.B.U. which  did not last long. The Wobblies  were too much on the anarchist  side and the timber beast  and the river rat didn't want  a revolution, only camp comforts such as clean spring beds  to sleep in and a belly full of  good grub to eat.  In the early- days we fought  for these  things and an eight  hour  day.  Eventually  we  settled for nine.  I could go on and on and fill  a book about unionism in B.C.  but alas I am no writer so will  crawl back in my shell and see  what happens next, now that  cur unions are big business  and have got away from the  principles of our first little  union of less than 400 men.  Today the logger can thank  the old stiff for the good conditions and wages they have.  They are the ones that took it  on the jaw in the days when  unions were outlawed and the  boss had it all to himself.  As I want no publicity as I  am now off the slave market,  will say cheerio and hope for  the day) when labor and management can get together and  see things eye to eye.  An old rounder  Editor, It's an ill wind that  does not do someone good. On  Sat., Aug. 8, through the generosity of a Gibsons fisherman  a lot of old pensioners of Gibsons district received a welcome gift.  Mrs. Crowhurst, president of  the O.A.P.A., phoned me that  she had a lot of nice fish and  that she would like to distribute them to members of the  O.A.P.A. I went with her and  her friend, Mr. Martindale and  we delivered them to the old  people at their homes.  They were much appreciated  and I feel that this gentleman,  Dal Triggs, should be well  thanked for his kindness in  giving these grand fish to our  old age pensioners.  J.W. Edwards, Grathams*.

RESIDENCE 105Y  WATER FOLLIES   -   AUGUST 22 fo 29 Far too much marketing emphasis is being placed today oa  so-called "captive audiences" and  far tco little on "captivated  audiences," according to W. H.  "Bill" Cranston, head of the Shoa  Corporation  of  Canada.  Addressing the Canadian Weekly Newspapers Association in Regina, Mr. Cranston said, "No  audience will remain 'captive'  for long simply by reason of  some physical limitation of TV  or radio signals.  "It must be captivated in  terms of personalized viewer or  reader interest and, in this field,  Canada's community-minded  newspapers, daily and weekly,  hold a large potential lead over  other advertising media.  "Newspaper readers are held  'captive' for advertisers basically  not because of any limitation of  competitive signal strength, but  because their -horizons are coin/*  ���cidental with those of the editors,,, the reporters and the advertisers who jointly create the  community journal."  Newspaper   "captivation",   Mr.  Cranston told the convention,  consists essentially in the fact  that their news, comment and  advertising is peronally purveyed by persons their readers  know and can, therefore, personally evaluate.  "Other mass media  seldom  if  ever approach the degree of consumer acceptance and influence  which the  good  newspaper  too  often    accepts    as natural and,  therefore,   fails   to  merchandise  to    potential    advertisers.    The  community-minded      newspaper  introduces its readers to the new  and the  novel in  terms  of the  known. It thus attains a degree  of    'captivation'   which   is   unknown   to    more   remote    and  therefore more 'artificial' media.  "It   is   an acknowledged fact  that the best selling method is  person to person, that is, face to  face,"   Mr.   Cranston   continued.  "But the cost of selling this way  is  for most manufacturers prohibitive.  "So the next best method is  for a known person, that is a  local dealer, to sponsor a product or service over his own  name in a medium known and  respected locally. This is where  the local newspaper, with its  'captivated' audience, can do  such a good job. It can be, and  is, a key link between consumer,  marketer   and  manufacturer."

The   letter  dated Jan.   18 told of the men  outside in their shirtsleeves sunning    themselves,     garbed    in  shorts.  Shortly afterwards the India  detachment staged a fete to  mark the anniversary of India's  independence which included  displays of physical adeptness,  folk dancing and other entertainment.  Surrounding the camp in whicn  the boys were stationed were  numerous battlefields of bygone  days and there still remained  many deep shell craters. The  battlefields not only were invaded by humans because Roger  ���writes of watching two ferocious  lizards who when spotted striv-  ed to dart off in 10 different  directions at once, finally making for nearby holes. Snakes  were about diae to appear and  of the 100 species known only  he felt sorry about the poverty  and laziness of the Egyptian  men, some of whom have two  wives whom they put to work  dragging a plow while the man  slept.  He found Ismailia chiefly a  city of Egyptians although there  was a Greek and Italian sector.  It was a clean city in comparison  vvith others and even sported a  park: As it was a Moslem holiday most of the shops were closed so the party contented itself  with taking pictures of available  sites. On the way home the party  stopped at an air force barracks  where Roger said they found  the food to be superb.  Apparently trouble arose over  the native barbers and cleaners  employed   at  the camp because.  Ron   reported the   UN  employ-  Sechelt News  BY MRS. A.A. FRENCH  Rev.

Exchange   of   snois    between;  Arabs  and   Jews  resulted   in  a  woman   and   child   being  killed  whicn he said would be followed  by continued haggling with UN  and more sneak attacks. He reported   the    troops   showed  no  sign of cordiality with Egyptians.  Bible   studies appeared to  be  one   of the    avocations   of   the  camp and  according to  the letters the  Bible class was enlarging and   filled with wholesome  and  vigorous   discussion.   Roger  ���wrote he had been asked to take  over    a    sermon    on a Sunday  morning-to-come   in   the    camp  chapel. He added he felt humble  but happy that  he  would have  the    opportunity   to   speak   to  many  others  at the service besides his comrades.  The day on which Roger wrote  was quite balmy and many camel  trains were passing with baby  camels trotting along. He found  the baby camels cute and added  that many of the boys have puppy dogs which they obtained  from Bedouins for a pack of  cigarets. He also spotted a  .couple of large lizards and  thought they would be a good,  subject for Walt Disney to play  with in a movie.  10 would be poisonous, the asp  and cobra being most dangerous.  Ron outlines his experiences  while on a visit to Ismailia. He  travelled 150 miles to the Suez  ,canal and on arriving there he  said it was a beautiful view in  contrast to the dusty desert they  had lived in for some time. The  Suez was crossed by ferry littered with camel dung and ragged youngsters. Ron explained  Rains had started to fall in  mid-February and Saadi, their  houseboy, said they would con  tinuie falling for another month.  When the sun did break out  Roger said the appearance of  the heavens was unlike any place  they had ever been and except  the prairie skies there were  none more fascinating.  4    Coast News, Aug. 13,  1959-  Guitar lessons are moving  along and the list of Roger's  students is increasing. At this  period Ronny is posted to Gaza  in Palestine with the signal  corps and he reports it to be a  much better post than Rajah.
