 Provincial Library,  Victoria, B. C.  DANNY'S  DINING ROOM  JUST  FINE  FOOD  Phone GIBSONS 140  SERVING  THE  GROWING  SUNSHINE  COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C. Volume 12,  Number 28, July, 9,  1959.  rnmrrrm  RAY  WHITING  RADIO-CONTROLLED  fHONE      9^0     GIBSONS  24 HR. COURTEOUS SERVICE  Victims of the Hague house  fire on Marine Drive on June  30 are getting back on their  feet again. Mr. and Mrs. Al  Gibson and their four young  children are now settled in a  temporary home in Gower  Point area. Mr and Mrs. Ted  Fearn are staying temporarily  with Mr. Harold Fearn, father  of Ted.  Others in the Hague home at  the time of the fire were David  Spencer, a boarder, and Mrs.  Alice Sampson an aunt of the  Gibsons. Mrs. Sampson is staying with the  Gibsons'.  How the fire started is problematical and no definite theory has been advanced by RCMP  or investigators. However once  the blaze was out the Red Croscs  Kiwanis Club and many other  organizations and public spirited citizens sprang into action  and soon had relief work underway.  Employees of Twin Creel-  Logging company organized a  ���collection and obtained sufficient money to give the Gibson  family $85 and the Ted Fearns  $85. Ted Fearn worked for  the company. The Kiwanis club  saw that immediate needs in  clothing were filled. Mrs. Cloe  Day provided immediate accommodation. Immediately after the fire the Gibson family  wa�� taken in the care of Mr.  and Mrs. Don Rowarid on Marine Drive.  The Gibson family is in dire  need of a house in which they  can live permanently. The Gibsons, who run the Coast Divers  and Sporting Goods store in  Gibsons seek a house with, at  least four bedrooms perferafoly  close to Gibsons because their  present accommodation is on a  short-term basis and they must  make a move.  Among the contribution�� re-  ious proportions a call was put  through to the Port Mellon fire  department which responded  with a truck and crew. Gibsons  Volunteer Firemen were grateful for the appearance of the  Port Mellon crew but by* that  time the fire had assumed lesser proportions and the aid of  the Port Mellon crew was riot  needed.  .Owing to the fact the editor  of j the Coast News who is Red  Croa3 disaster chairman, was  busily occupied with getting  out the edition for that week,  Mrs. Jules Mainil promptly  stepped into the breach and obtained for the fire victims,  necessary bedding to help them  get settled. Sufficient bedding  for eight persons, sheets, blankets, pillow cases and such  like were immediately despatched from   Vancouver  It wa a busy period for the  Volunteer Firemen. They had  their engines and equipment all  ���spick and > span for the July I  parade when ���'-' the fife alarm  sounded andi they had to spring  into action. But they got busy  immediately after the fire and  had their engines and equipment  all   cleaned   up  for the parade  Fire averted  Quick action by the: night  staff, coupled with assistance  of the two doctors and near-by  neighbors prevented a bad fire  at St. Mary's Hospital, Pender  Harbour, early Wednesday  morning of last week;  Noticing smoke issuing from  the laundry outbuilding at  about four a.m. the two nurses  on night duty, Miss Doney and  Mrs. Martin roused maintenance man Bill Egner and Drs.  Swan and Stonier, also spread  the alarm to neighbors in the  vicinity.?-     .A-.;. ;,.;-y::.y,,.y y .  ceived for  the Gibson  family ^   ~ Tf^^  was $8 from three  men  who     under   control, with, compara-  visited the. Coast News office,  presented the money) and said  they preferred to remain anonymous. The Gibson family are  also grateful to Bill and Ada  Farnham who have helped  them considerably'.  Two minute�� after the alarm  sounded firemen were arriving  at the fire hall and within another three minutes the first  truck was pumping water on  the roof of the house next to  the one that burned. The firemen with the second truck ran  hose from a hydrant in front  of Gibsons Hardware and had  water on the fire within six  minutes from the time the first  alarm sounded.  Twenty minutes later the  fire was under control to the  point that it would not spread  and after an hour, firemen began to roll up part of the hose  to be taken back to the hall  washed, and hung up to dry.  At 10 o'clock that same night  firemen were still busy handling hose and making final  check on the equipment.  Firemen, as soon as they saw  the fire was under control, had  one truck reloaded. This stood  by to take care of spot fires*  caused by flying embers. Luckily there were no serious outbreaks although three.or four  incipient fires were put out as  soon as smoke curled upwards.  The embers were carried quite  a distance by a gusty wind  blowing from the south-east.  When the fire assumed ser-  Officers installed  At a supper meeting of the  Sechelt Kinsmen club held  June 27 at Wilson Creek Hall  the new officers of the Kinsmen and Kinettes were installed The installation was capably handled by Governor  Colin Jackson and Deputy Governor Sleet Harry Doll.  Kinsmen officers are Al Fox,  president; George Page, vice-  president; Ed Rennie, secretary  Doug Naud, treasurer and Sonny Benner, registrar. Kinette  officers are Arvella Benner,  president; Audry Benner, secretary and Clem Naud, treasurer.  A cheque for $100 proceeds  from the Kinette Karnival, for  the ambulance fund was turned over to the Kinsmen by Fay  Hansen. After the business  meeting an evening of dancing  followed.  tively minor damage. Cause of  the fire-:remains, a matter for  speculation. ?  Tend  ers ca  lied  William 13. P|ayriej member  of parliament for Coast-Capilano riding announces he has  received word from the Hon.  Davie Fulton, minister of justice, that approval has been  for the construction of detachment quarters on the site that  given for the calling of tenders  has been procured by the Royal  Canadian Mounted Police in  Gibsons.  . The site was purchased from  Edward Feidler, Gibsons, for  the price of $2,000.  Details of the building to be  constructed are: Detachment  quarters consist of married  quarters which contain on the  first floor a living room, dining room and kitchen; on the  second floor . three bedrooms  and bath. There is a full basement under this portion. There  are also quarters for two single members, office, cell and  garage facilities as required.  Numbers drawn for the July  1 celebration awards on tickets purchased by the. public  are:  Program draw for a mix-  master, No. 364.  Ballot ticket draw, two prizes, first, an all-wave transistor  radio and second, a movie camera with color film; first prize  No. 219 and second prize No.  216.  Booster club  suggested  Tuesday night's meeting of  the July 1 Celebration committee saw Ike Mason, chairman*  present the suggestion the com  mittee continue its efforts under the name of Gibsons Booster club.  Working together in a common cause can do more, he informed members of the committee. The talent used for the'  July 1 celebration revealed a  proper community spirit, so,  he asked, why break up the  committee? Clubs.and businessmen could join hands in the  Gibsons Booster club, he said.  He left the suggestion with  the committee to think over  before the next general meeting of the committee.  In the meantime the committee will continue to act in  /support of a swim meet and  possible regatta probably on  August 23. This event would  not be a continuation of the  July 1 swim meet, postponed  because of rain. Members of  the Volunteer Firemen will see  to the organization of the swim  meet but they will be a part  of the general committee to  which theyi will be responsible  for arrangements.  Dick Kennett moved that  Ernie. Lowe _Ae?thanked-for >  keeping the July 1 celebration  alive as it was he who informed the Board of Trade that if  the board dropped it someone  els-e would take it up.  The July 1 committee on  hearing the financial report of  expenses for the day found it  had broken even on revenue  and expenses. There will be another meeting of the committee next Tuesday night.  Gibsons July 1 celebration went off without a hitch revealing ;careful organization on the part of the committee. Despite the  heavy shower of rain which curtailed swimming events and later .in the evening the dancing on the Super-Valu parking area,  the ;day was an unqualified success. Highlight of the day was the  crowning  of   Mermaid  Queen  Syjlyia Wilson who won the  honpr over four other contestants.  Including the cars convej--  ing? the variouo queen candidates there were about 40 vehicles in the float parade exclusive of horses, children's  decorated bikes and walking  characters. The parade started on time headed by the Air  For**ie Cadet, band, followed by  the '.air cadets and the girls'  drilj team and Legion Color  parties from Sechelt, Roberts  Creek and Gibsons.  The parade, marshalled along  the '.route by Bobby Wilson,  wended- its way to Kinsmen  park where traffic control sent  the winning floats on the field  and ? the others along Gower  Point road or Fletcher road  where they could disband.  On the field the band, cadets  and drill team were marshal  led into position along with  prize winning floats and queen  candidate cars. Cameras which  had been clicking all along the  route were busily clicking on  the field taking pictures in  color or otherwise.  After opening remarks from  J.R. WiJson, master of ceremonies, Ike Mason, president  of the Canadian Legion Gibsons branch and chairman of  the Julyi 1 celebration committee, speaking for the committee  said that on short notice they  got the show on the road. He  thanked all organizations who  helped get the celebration organized. He then declared the  celebration opened and called  on Ron Haig, zone commander  of the Canadian Legion to announce the name of the queen  among the five contestants on  the platform.  een Sylvia is crowned  The queens all looked their  best and were Penny Davis for  the Kinsmen Club, Gail Greg-  gain> Port Mellon mill union;  Bunny Herrin, Gibsons Legion;  Sandra Peterson, Kiwanis -club;  and.Sylvia Wilson, Volunteer  Firemen.  Mr. Haig taking a sealed envelope which had been given  him by scrutineers of the ballots, tore it open in public view  removed the paper containing  the name and read the name  of Sylvia Wilson. The crowd  applauded while Sylvia expres  sed surprise at being chosen.  Helen Stewart, Miss Peninsula of 1955 then crowned Sylvia who thanked those who  sponsored her and the many  who had voted her Mermaid  Queen. Mr. Haig presented the  Queen with a beautiful wrist  watch and the other queen candidates: with lockets.  Queen Sylvia presented awards to the winning floats in  the parade. Judges who selected the winners were  Kehoe, Joe O'Brien and  Nasadyk.'  Ray  Bill  winners announced  $27,100 for  4 buildings  Building    permits  $27,100  were   issued  Here are the float winners:  Commercial, 1. Harold Wilson;  2. B.C.

Following the presentations  the Kincmen club ran off the  races for young children after  which the Air Cadets' girl drill  team performed, first abouc  five or six minutes of square  drill and then an interesting  &pell of precision marching  and counter-marching, crisscrossing  and other evolutions  The girls were smart in their  square drill and left nothing  to be desired in their precision  drill in spite of the uneven  ground on which they performed.  The cadets were under command of WO 1 W.G. Gubbe,  the girls under command of  WO 2 Pat Streeter and the band  under Bandmaster Bob Thompson. S/L Derek Innan supervised the whole party.  totalling  Tuesday  night at Gibson�� Village Com-       _  w^onrS" wat^nt Swimmers attract crowd  build a  $14,500  butcher   shop        A little Iater in the day the  COTTAGE DESTROYED  Fire destroyed a vacant summer cottage at Halfmoon Bay  Saturday night causing a loss  of approximately $1,200.

LIBRARY   STAYS  OPEN  Gibsons Public Library will remain open during July and August on Tuesdays and Saturdays  each week from 2 to 4 p.m.  In past years the library has  closed for these two months but  owing to increased population  and a demand for the use of the  Library it has been decided it  should remain open.  LETTER. TO EDITOR  Editor: A few remarks re the  firemen of Gibsons. I would like  to thank these men first for their  ability as firemen also their  readiness when an emergency in  sickness takes place. When it  comes to holiday festivity they  too are on the job.���E. R. Mainwaring.  Holidays  tt t  To give the entire staff of  the Coast News a well-earned rest no edition will be  published July 16 and 23.  The plant will be closed  from July 10 to 24.  When the rains came it was  drawing close to mealtime and  spectators scattered to later attend   the   square   dancing   on  Super-Valu parking space, Sechelt  Highway.   Callers  were  Bud Blatchford,. Maurice Hem-  otreet ���and   Harry   Robertson.  There were at times up to five  squares on the go and the number of spectators who  enjoyed  the   performance   was   larger  than ever. Square dancers came  down from Sechelt and other  points, and helped put on a really      interesting     performance  with  young  and old  alike cavorting in and out and around.  Rain    caused   cancellation   of  later dancing.  Taking an all-round size-up  cf the July 1 celebration the  committee in charge, spearheaded by the Gibsons branch  of the Canadian Legion, did a  fine job on such short notice.  Ike Mason was chairman of the  committee and with the aid of  the various  clubs  which took  part in organization work performed a smooth job throughout.  The Legion Ladies Auxiliary  had a busy time feeding the  90 or more persons who came  with the Air Cadet Band including cadets and girl's drill  team.. They were served a turkey dinner in the Legion hall  and Cpl. Danny, Keeley said  grace after which turkey and  trimming disappeared with  alarming speed.  Comments from the party,  including the top brass, is tha  they would like to come back  for next year's July 1 celebration. They were pleased with  their reception and liked what  they zzw oi the Sunshine Coast  They want to see more.  QUEEN SYLVIA WILSON  Cope case  dismissed  At the request of counsel de-  lending Constable L. Hok,  charged by B.L. Cope with driv  ing without due care and attention, Magistrate Andy Johnston last Friday dismissed the  case but not until after he and  W.A. Craig, defending counsel,  had pEiii_ied some caustic remarks.  Mr. Craig in a-��_ing for dismissal without presenting any  defence, said he had never in  all his jiears of legal practice  come into contact with a ca&e  that contained such flimsy evidence. He was of the opinion  the time of the court and mem-  , bers of the RCMP had been  "wasted by having to appear before the magistrate.  In delivering his verdict,  Magistrate Johnston agreed  there was insufficient evidence  therefore could only say the  casia be dismissed but before  doing to commented on some  literature which had been distributed by Mr. Cope concerning the case. The magistrate  termed the literature as contemptible.  Mr. Copy's case as far as can  be deduced "l*Q.r*ri evidence was  based on the fact. Cn_t. Hok  had driven the RCMP car off  to the side of the road on the  S turn c.csa to the ravine and  as a result had to be helped  from his position by a tow  truck. Const. Hok had driven  to that _-pot to get his car out  of a traiiic area while Mr.  Cope's car was. hauled out of  i-.*'- position by a tow truck.  Mr. Cope was himself charged  later with driving without due  care, was found guilty and  fined $30. The Cope charge  against Hok followed.  CM. Mandelkau, of S & S  rjE-rvice nation called by Mr.  Cope as witness, declared he  could not see anything unusual  about the RCMP car except one  front wheel failed to have traction because it was ever a  small soil erosion gully, caused by rain but this was quickly remedied when the car was  moved a couple of feet by the  tow truck. Mr Mandelkau was  called to the scene to put Mr.  Cope's car back on the road.  BOOTEE FOUND  A white baby bootee which was  found on  the  Kinsmen grounds  July    1   can be  claimed   at the  Ccast News Office.

Life's Darkest Moment  A period with tragedy  Last week's issue of the Coast News contained a story  about a third fire in Pender Harbour area which unfortunately  snuffed out a life. The same issue reported a logger having been  the victim of a falling snag, a young child being fatally injured  as the result of a highway mishap and the story about the fire  that struck Gibsons with startling suddenness.  This is not the kind of news any sensible weekly editor  likes to report because of the possible tragedies that lie behind  these events which are not always evident. However, it would  seem a rash of accidental events hits an area every so often and  must be taken in stride.  Everyone sympathizes with those who have suffered be-  jeavement as the result of an event that takes life and everyone  sympathizes with those who have lost their all by fire, particularly when they are innocent bystanders to a fire close by which  spreads to their premises.  One should expect the Sunshine Coast has had its batch of  tragic events for some time to come. All one can do is hope this  is so.  KfLL. J"oY  OHa-'Tx- B.roW fi��M Htn.  ,.���. W^  Province to help aged  Presently definitely not now  Guardians of the English language ��� usually self-appointed ��� must feel at times that their task is hopeless. The public  ignores them as pedants and continues to take its grammar and  syntax from popular songs and comic strips. The process of deterioration is assisted by some radio and television announcers  and commentators, possiblyi because they are continually exposed  to the influence of the popular song.  Some persons blame American usages for the decline of  English, and it is true that the American language is becoming  something different from standard English. Recent English books  provide some evidence that their authors have made Americanisms part of their own vocabularies. On the other hand, there are  a few Americans who seem to believe that the conservation of  good English is important, and who continue to foster it by precept and example.  One of these is Theodore M. Bernstein of the New York  Tirnes, who-;e book "Watch Your Language," published last year  should be a useful addition to any editorial desk; it consists of  comments on words and sentences that have appeared in his own  and other papers, with praise for^gppd w.prk and witty reproof  of the bad. For instance, quoting from a sentence that began "As  the former Far Eastern commander reviewed his service in the  Orient preparatory to leaving for Paris..," Mr. Bernstein points  out: "The review in no sense prepared him for his departure;  what the writer meant was simply 'before.'"  The author also disapproves a fault that is becoming increasingly common. " 'Presently' should be reserved," he says,  "for the meaning 'forthwith' or 'soon'; it should not be diluted to  take in also 'at present.' " Since this dilution of meaning is to be  found in government documents and laws, Mr. Bernstein's fight  against it may be lost.  The work of an earlier guardian of language, the late Ambrose Bierce, illustrates how the faults of one generation can become the common usage of the next. In his book, "Write It Right'  published in 1909, Bierce condemns the word "lengthy," which  most modern writers would use without question. Yet Bierce  points out correctlyi: "It is no better than breadthy or thicknessy."  Perhaps Bierce should be credited with one triumph in his  note on the word "gubernatorial," which now seldom appears in  print. Certainly no writer who had read Bierce's denunciation  would dare to use it. He said: "Eschew it; it is not English, is  needless and bombatic. Leave it to thoe who call a political office  a 'chair.' 'Gubernatorial chair' is good enough for them. So is  hanging." ��� The Printed Word  Premier W. A. C. Bennett has  announced that in recognition  of the forthcoming visit of Her  Majesty the Queen, special  "bonus" payments totalling $1,-  500,000 will be made in July "to  needy and handicapped British  Columbians.  The cash payments will be  made to Old Age Pensioners, to  persons receiving general social  assistance, and to the dependents cf social assistance case..  The Premier emphasized that  the payments will be in addition  to all existing allowances paid  to persons  in  these  categories.  Here are the details of the  plan: ,-....  Every Old Age Pensioner and  Old Age Assistance case now in  receipt of the Provincial supplementary assistance will be paid  $25.00.  Every head of a family receiving general social assistance will  be paid $25.00.  Each dependent of a person  'receiving general social assistance will be paid $5.00. The  Premier said that organization  of the special plan, is now under  way, and that he hopes the distribution of cheques will be completed by the end of July.  Commenting on the plan,  which is unique in Canada as a  form of recognition of a Royal  Visit, the Premier said: "The  Government feels that Her Majesty and His Royal Highness  will be particularly pleased to  know that on the occasion of  their visit, the pioneers who  built British Columbia and those  of our citizens who have not enjoyed the good fortune of most  *of us will be helped in a realistic  manner.

It means watching family expenses with  an eagle eye.  The annual expenditures of the Minister of Transport at  Ottawa involve millions of dollars ��� and his department is  only one of many.  This money comes through the Minister of Finance who  gets it largely in taxes from Canadians such as you. When  he spends more than he takes in, he must borrow from you  ... or else create new money. The creation of new money  is one factor that leads to inflation ��� which means your  dollar buys less and less.  The government has been spending more than you have  been paying in taxes. To narrow the gap between income  and-expenditures, new taxes have been imposed.  You can encourage the government to live within its  income by asking only for those services you are willing to  pay for with taxej. Teii your M.P. at Ottawa that since you  are trying to save, you expect government to do the same.

Every city and every country has its own particular custom but the Hawaiians stand  out among all nationalities for  their friendliness. There seems  to be no particular hurry by  the native-born to go anywhere  or get anything done at any  specific time. The Hawaiians  are happy. They sing, dance,  talk   and enjoy life.  When travellers arrive on  the Orient and Pacific Line  ships, pretty Hawaiian girls  from the Honolulu Tourist Bureau board toe vessels to greet  each person with a garland of  fresh flowers. There's always a  special lei for the captain of  the s;hip and the "aloha" greeting is followed by songs and  dances.  Honolulu,   in the   island   of  Oahu, is the capital city of the  Hawaiian  Island ��� the  most  isolated   land   group   in    the  ���world. .-The   nearest   mainland  to any of the seven islands, is  more than 2,000 miles distant.  They   dress , casually,   comfortably and always in bright  colored attire. The aloha shirts  ��� the brightly-flowered open  neck style ��� are proper dress.  at most functions and anyone  going  to   an Hawaiian   party  ���who can play a musical instrument should take it with him.  There's alwayjs lots of music.  Over half the Hawaiian population,   of- 500,000,   lives   in  Honolulu,  which has   become  a mecca for thousands of tourists. The city is a major part  of call for all O & P passenger  lines serving the Pacific area.  Production of  sugar   is the  principal industry with an an-  ual crop  of over one million  tons.   Tne  pineapple   industry  ranks   second   in   importance  and    next   comes   the   tourist,  trade which is due as much to  warm,   settled weather   as  to  the beauty o*| the islands. The  average water   temprature   at  W a i k i k i   beach, Honolulu's  ���world-famous resort,  is about  78 degrees.  What impressed most on this  trip to the Far East? Our trip  took us first to San Francisco,  which some people class as  "the greatest in the world." It  is a city of class tradition and  amazement. Many passengers  aboard the Orient and Pacific  Lines passenger ships take day  and night excursions established by, the Gray line and all  fascinated.  The same applies1 in the Los  Angeles area, next port of call.  From    there    to    Honolulu,  where everyone is friendly, th  ^r^*'-,^-'*_**_r_��-��_-"---B-_B--Ba*_BHB_��-BB>.

John William Bowdery  Dated June 9th, 1959.  weather i_ always in the 70s  and the water warm. It -could  be a wonderful place in which  to live, but first one must get  used to the weather and customs.  In Yokohama, Tokyo, Osaka,  Kyoto, the climate is similar to,  but warmer than Vancouver,  but the customs and living are  entirely different. Everyone appears to be in a hurry and the  country itself is moving ahead  by the day. Factories are going full blast, and construction  at a peak.  Would a Canadian like to  live in Japan? The answer  could be in the affirmative because while rents are high, the  cost of living and household is  cheaper. There's a language  problem, but not for those who  can and do learn enough basic  phrases.  In the British colony, of  Hong Kong, where Chinese and  ���East Indians predominate,  again labor is cheap but rents  high and cost of western-style  food about the same as Vancouver.  There are so many new kinds  of food and customs that while  one would appreciate the "new  life" for a. short time, it is hard  to state emphatically that "life  would be better in Hong Kong  than in Vancouver."  On Manila, in the humid  Phillipines, it would take  months to get used to the continuous hot weather.  Europeans receive   subsidies  to offset the high cost of rents.  However,   household   help    is  plentiful and reasonable and  most foreigners have several  servants.  In Singapore ��� one and a  half miles from the Equator ���  the weather is even hotter than  the Phillipines. It rains almost  every afternoon but the downpours are preceded and followed by brilliant sunshine and extreme humidity. There again  it's a case of getting acclimatized.  All the Far East cities visited by O & P liners in the Pacific service have huge ports,  but none is more impressive  than Vancouver's.  The closest harbor from a  scenic point of view is Hong  Kong, where the Colony's island city of Victoria looms on  one side of the harbor entrance  and  the  city; of  Kowloom  on  the other.  Travellers, without exception, who arrived in Vancouver  on the Chusan and Himilaya  were awe-struck with the scenery, the greenness and beauty  of the city as the ships sailed  under Lions Gate Bridge and  docked within three blocks of  the centre of the metropolis.

Called the Ballet Auxiliary,  it was formed to help students  of ballet in this district, to aid  in any social affairs which concern the dancing school, to lift  from Miss Gordon the burden of  dealing personally with side issues of the ballet school, such  as enrollment and publicity, and  generally to encourage interest  in ballet through the districts.  The group heard first a history of past organizations which  had been formed to secure good  dance teaching in our district,  dating to the time when Miss  Gordon's instruction had been  procured and thus, the opportunity of having Royal Academy  Ballet Training in the commu-  inity.  Officers of the new auxiliary  were elected, Mrs. W. Dockar  becoming president, Mrs. Mcintosh, secretary-treasure, and Mrs.  Warn, publicity.  The women of this auxiliary  will publicize, towards the end  of the summer, the opening of  the dance school on Sept. 9. Particulars about it may be obtained from Mrs. McKibbin, Gibsons  192, from Mrs. Beck, Sechelt  68H, or from Mrs. Warn at Roberts Creek, Gibsons 177A.

But to really cash in on seasonal bargains  and specials, you've got to stock up when prices are lowest.  Your home freezer can help you "freeze" food costs in many ways.  By buying meats, fruits, vegetables - even eggs - at low, in-season prices.  By taking advantage of large-quantity buying economies. By loading up  when your grocer advertises frozen food specials. And by storing  game, fish, home garden produce, bargain day-old bread, home baking  and left-overs for later enjoyment.  You'll save money, shopping trips and food preparation time with a  home freezer - and equally important, your family will enjoy better eating  the whole year 'round.

The cyclirama, sometimes called a panorama, is a form of  visual education and entertain  ment provided by paintings or  other graphic arts on a long canvas.--It-can be either a stationary  display, usually shown around  the walls of a large room, or a  display that is shown by winding a canvas off one drum on to  another. The cyclorama, which,  originated in Britain during the  later years of the 18th century,  was particularly popular in Canada duffing the 19th century.  Panoramas of great battles br of  geographic regions such as Great  Britain or the Holy Land toured  the provinces, offering a form  pi entertainment that was a forerunner of the movies. Eventually a few displays acquired permanent homes. The best-known  one today is probably the cyclo-  ramic view of the Holy and housed at Ste. Anne die Beaupre in  Quebec.  Is There A Canadian Paradise?  Yes, in Nova Scotia. Paradise  is a community in Annapolis  County. It was known to the  French settlers of earlier days  as Paradis Terrestre because if  its natural beauty.' The village,  with a population "of less than  400, is situated at the junction  of the Annapolis and Paradise  rivers.  Who Was Fleury Mesplet?  He was Montreal's first printer and the founder of the city's  first newspaper, the Gazette,  which is still published. Born in  France in 1735, he met Benjamin  Franklin, in London and in 1773  emigrated to Philadelphia where  ihe set himself up as a printer.  During the American occupation  of Montreal in 1775, Franklin  was appointed to head the American cairunission sent to the city.  Mesplet was -chosen as printer to  the commission but he reached  Montreal with his press only a  few weeks before the Americans  evaluated the city. He stayed on,  however, and before the end of  1776 was in business as Montreal  Gazette, which he continued until his death in 1794.  What Is Canada's Longest River?  The mighty Mackenzie River,  one of the world's largest. From  the source of the most distant  stream in the Mackenzie system  ��� the Finlay River in British  Columbia ��� to the Arctic the  distance is 2635 miles. The name  Mackenzie is applied to the river  only from Great Slave Lake to  its outlet in the Arctic Ocean.  There are only ten or eleven  longer rivers in the world, including the Nile (4053 miles),  the Amazon (4000 miles) and  the Missouri-Mississippi (3986  miles).

Nine out of every ten adult  pedestrians killed in traffic never  had been licensed to drive. Importance of driving experience  in learning how to cope with  traffic while on foot is implied.
