In line with this the Highways department has been notified to remove the Open Range  signs from Sunshine Coast  Highway and it is expected by  the time this is in print they  will have been taken down.  Authority for the posting of  notices is by the minister of agriculture at Victoria. Further  information from Victoria adds  that a person who permits an  animal to run at large within  a pound district is guilty of  an offence and liable on summary conviction to a penalty  hot exceeding $25. This is what  the amended Pound District  act now says.  the Peninsula in an endeavour  to bolster up the sagging enthusiasm of both . players and  fans of the Mid-Peninsula League.

Today Pender Harbour  finds it difficult to field a team  Port Mellon and Gibsons Firemen, two of the keenest clubs  ever to battle for supremacy,  have reported a lack of interest.  There is enough material in  teams, but it is obvious that  both places to field pretty fair  teams, but it is obvious  no one person will undertake  to organize.

These donations provide a  good start but a great deal of  money is needed to replace  worn out equipment and also  additional equipment for improving the service. One interesting fact is. that in a given  period there were 89 admis.  eions to the hospital of which  40 were from Gibsons, 39 from  Sechelt and only 10 from Pender Harbour.

Ritchey,  chairman of the Village Commission said at Tuesday night's  meeting in the Municipal Hall  that he felt sure the corporation  of the Village of Gibsons would  be quite willing to discuss any  water district proposal in order  to improve water facilities for  the village and surrotunding  area.  The subject was brought up  when the matter of providing  water to areas outside the village. Chairman Ritchey was of  the opinion the day was coming nearer when something  would have to be done.  The problem of speeding in  the school area on School Rd.  has resulted in the RCMP pointing out that there are no school  zone signs* in that area and only  one 20 mph sign. Under such  circumstances the police report prosecutions are not possible up to 20 mph. A police  radar unit checking the area  recently recorded only one car  noted travelling close to 20  mph.  The commission is considering using a salt solution on  gravelled roads to keep down  dust. Costs are being examined  Accounts totalling $1,230.25  were ordered paid, $770.21 for  roads, $221.06 for sewers,  $101.26 general expense, $69.54  for fire protection and $68.18  for water.  Village playground and  beach fixtures were ordered  painted along with signs at entrances to the village.  Sports day at  Wilson Cree  Wilson Creek's Sports Day  will commence at 11 a.m. at  the Community Centre, Sat.,  Jitne 13 and an interesting program has been lined up. There  will be as a starter a costume  parade for which there will be  a prize and it is possible a  May Queen will be present.  There will be races for the  younger fry and a ball game.  Featured in the races will be  a mile event opened to all. In  the evening there will be a  dance in the hall -at which refreshments will be served.  Grads hear  some advice  iA new symptom of age was  diagnosed by Dr. K.F. Argue of  US.C. Faculty of Education  when he described the "good  old days" theory as the hardening of the imagination which  gqes along with hardening of  the arteries.  ;.He was addressing the 30  graduate of Elphinstone High  school last Friday night when  graduation exercises took place  Dr. Argue opened his remarks  by comparing graduations of  "his own graduating period.  There were no ceremonies as  we have them today. Perhaps  onfe got a bike as a graduation  ���** pi^sent and .went.off .on: a bike  tour. What happened in his  case was that he was told he  could go to university which he  did because he explained he  left the university owing to a  shortage of money and graduated in  absentia.  Today's ceremony was tremendously impressive, he said,'  and remarked that the churches should smarten up or graduation ceremonies would become the major factor in a  young woman's life with a wedding ceremony as an anti-climax.  Describing students of today  he noted the poise of the graduates, something not on the  school curriculum but gathered somehow along the way.  They had learned the difficult  art of being together and having reached that stage were  now moving into another chapter of their lives.  Graduates of today he said,  were about to enter an incredibly new world, a different  world and he was glad the older generation had been able to  contribute something worthwhile towards thQ world in  which the graduates lived today.  Turning towards the young  graduates he talked on respon  sibility and reminded them that  responsibility goes along with  the car keys. There were dangers ahead for them and plenty  of opportunities and one of the  opportunities was the means of  acquiring further education  through universities aided hy  scholarships, bursaries and  loans.  He welcomed the graduates  to a larger freedom and responsibility, and warned them they  would be dependent on the  best judgement of their elders.  In closing he wished them well  and Godspeed.  More than 600 persons saw  30 pupils graduate from Elphinstone High School Friday  evening in the auditorium. The  event was watched by the largest crowd ever to fill the auditorium.  From the processional  around the hall to the recessional at the end, led each way  by Principal W.S. Potter to the  music of an orchestra conducted by Miss Mclntyre, the whole  ceremony showed careful preparation.  On the stage at footlight level and gracing the floor in front  of the stage were a profusion  of flowers. The 30 graduates,  18 girls and 12 boys, the girls  in their stunning graduation  gowns and the boys in their  dress jackets, had as a background the theme of this year's  ceremony, a Bluebird of Happiness and was a fitting idea as  one watched the seriousness of  the youthful faces of the pupils  bidding farewell to their school  life.  Here are the names of the  graduates and the area on the  peninsula where they  live:  Wilson Anderson, Diane St.  Denis and Pat Englehart of  Roberts Creek.  Carol Brackley, Keith Head.  Leanna Moscrip and Albert  Sim of Selma Park.  David Chippendale of Hopkins Landing.  Perry Oike and Irene Tyson.  Wilson Creek.  Mervin Volen of Port Mellon, i  Eileen Scheidegger, Hillside.

Stron>  stad, who offered the invocation; Mr. Potter, master of ceremonies and the speaker, Dr.  K.F. Argue, of U.B.C. faculty  of education.  In his opening remarks Mr-  Potter said the large audience  revealed how much of a community enterprise the graduation ceremony had become. He  complimented those who hafi  taken part in providing the  banquet preceding the graduation ceremony and also the  fathers who had so ably decorated the auditorium and set the  stage for the event.

Dave also introduced Bob Fretter, the president of the council for the next year.  Wilson Anderson presented  in numerous vein the Last Will  and Testament of Grade 12 in  which  the   trials  and   tribula  tions of the departing class  were passed on to the new  Grade 12 along with advice  about how fine the teachers  were.

New/Jess stirs attention  It. is strange how people get wrought up over something  stew whicii lias undertones of tragedy. Take as an example the  2-jr.nioil aroused because some children get plastic bags over  their heaas and smocner to death. Tragic, yes, but how about all  ���,���__.& children lett alone to become victims of fire. They apparently  ���are in the same category as the weather, everyone talks about it  tent nobody does anything.  Again, how about the children who get hold of medicines,  gills ana sucn like. Yes, how about them! 1'bey too are in the  same category as the weather.  In the same period when 22 children lose their lives  ���SltcQugh smothering in plastic bags, many more than 22 in the  same area were victims of fire and of the easy-to-get dangerous  oirugs, pills and so on.  It is not pieasant to hear of 22 children losing their lives  ay smothering. Neither is it pleasant to hear of six, seven or eight  abildren. being fire victims in one fire, or even one child dying  ._com. consuming something that should have been out of reach.  However newness is a keynote word, in news and advertising these days, so perhaps newer types of tragedies are more  jknportant than the old standbys.  The B.C. Safety Council takes the attitude plastic bags are  .���so; dnubt here to stay. Adults must accept responsibility for the  .'.safety of our children from the possible hazards of their use. Two  -imple rules will eliminate this hazard:  Except when the plastic container is made for a specific  jwirpose ��� e.g. pillow and mattress covers ��� keep plastic bags  mi material away from infants.  Train older children never to place them over the heads  ��__ other children or themselves.  -V / *  y &-���  W^atch out future here we co me  Tlie valedictory address by Trudy Preuss tells how the  graduation ceremonies in Elphinstone High School completes, a=  !~_-e says, act one in the careers of the graduates. Here for the  ���.���atEfication of all is Trudy's address.  Six years ago we rushed through Elphinstone's doors for  "t-ie first time, wide eyed and excited youngsters. Little we knew  then of how much these years would mean to us. Our biggest  -firearn, and one that seemed so far away, was graduation Through  <c_te years we have struggled and pushed upward toward that  fgpal- Along the way we have acquired the basic skills necessary  ���feEc mould a successful future.  Tonight our dream of six years ago has become a reality.  We graduate. We are surprised. It seems to have pounced upon  ass suddenly, from just nowhere. It is difficult to realize that our  .'-school days are over and that from now on our lives will assume  ���a different pattern.  Although we must bid farewell to our school and move  .'-forward into another branch of learning ��� vocational school,  v-S-iversity or the working world ��� we have many fond memor-  ���Xes which will keep us together and a small part of Elphinstone.  Surely we will never get too serious; too engrossed in  ���^���92rid affairs; too old to remember such things as a carefully con-  naealed frog in a favorite teacher's desk; an occasional misguided  ���saissile zooming on its way; our losses and our victories in sports,  ���and last but not least and yet to come, our frantic cramming for  :._iaal tests.  Soon the curtain will be lowered, and Act one will have  ibeen completed. Act two will appear fresh and crisp,, a new  Branch of learning will make its appearance. We are ready to  take our places in this changing scene.  My classmates and I wisn to express our gratitude to our  :'**��_-chers for their patience and understanding throughout these  'six. \ -ears; our parents, who have played such a vital role in guiding us. tnrougn this very important period of our lives; to the  members of the Board oi School Trustees who give freely of their  time, to administer the public funds of a society which believes  in. educating its young peopie.  We believe that the combined efforts of parents, teachers  **and society have fitted us to become useful citizens.  To the students of Elphinstone our wishes are: success in  ;53-ur studies, and as much fun as we have had during our six  jfeaxs here.  To my clasmates I wish you good health, happiness and  -success in the future.  And now ��� watch out future ��� here we cornel  egsonnaeres Hold zone  About 100 Legionaires and  members of the Ladies Auxiliaries from the six Legion  branches in the Elphinstone  Peninsula Zone, attended a  Zone Rally held at VanAnda  on June 6.  The Texada Island Branch  were hosts. The group travelled by bus and car to Westview  where they boarded the ferry  Atrevida for the crossing to  the Island.'  A solid turkey luncheon was  served by the Ladies Auxiliary of Texada Island Branch.  Following lunch the Zone  Meeting got underway under  the chairmanship of Ron Haig,  Zone Commander.  Among the many items of  business dealt with, were the  appointment of L.A. Schon as  deputy zone commander and  a. recommendation that the  next zone meetng be held at  Gibsons branch on September  19.  By unanimous decision of  the meeting, Roberts Creek  branch No. 219 was awarded  the Membership Plaque for the  year 1953, for general excellence in maintenance of membership.

Mrs. Lane Knight of Toronto  National Chairman of Red  Cross Voluntary Services Committee, spoke on the responsibilities cf the committees and  the need for close liaison between branch and divisional  chairmen.  Other speakers were Mrs.  Norman A. Campbell, provincial chairman of Alberta Division, Mrs. R.C. Maxwell, chairman of the Manitoba provincial  committee and Mrs. CD.

An occurrence  of uranium on the shore of  Lake Superior was reported in  that year but the location of  this ore deposit as described  so vaguely that it was not until  a few years ago that uranium  was rediscovered  in the area.  Several finds: of this element  in other parts of the country  were made in the early 20th  century but the most important prewar discovery was that  made in 1930 by two prospectors of Eldorado Gold Mines  Limited on the east shore of  Great Bear Lake in the North-  est Territories. This discovery  was brought into production in  1933 and a refinery was established at Port Hope, Ont., to  treat the ore.  The company's first interest  was mainly in radium but, after the discovery of fission, it  also supplied significant quantities of uranium for wartime  atomic-energy developments.  During the war, control of this  company was acquired by the  Canadian Government as a security measure and a Crown  company, Eldorado Mining and  Refining Limited, was set up  to take over the operation.  What street recalls fur-trading  days?  Beaver Hall Hill in Montreal  The earliest trade centred in  Montreal was that of furs and  the city is still a great centre  of the manufacture and sale  of fine furs. Beaver Hall Hill,  in the downtown area of the  city, commemorates the locale  of the early trade.

HARVESTER  (Ey Les Peierson)  Thomas William Roberts  who gave his name to the area  known as Roberts Creek, died  ���May: 14 in Abbotsford at the  age of 92.  In 1889 when 21, he set out  from his home at Reddich, England, sailed around the Horn  to Vancouver and pre-empted  District Lot 809, a block of  land half-a-mile square lying  eastward and northward from  what became known as the  mouth of Roberts Creek. On the  east bank of the stream, just  above tidewater he built his  cabin and began to prove up  on his holdings.  Although the three-ship Union Steamships Company was  incorporated in the year that  the young Roberts arrived,  since he had no dock, it was of  little use to him. At first, unless he was fortunate enough  to hitch a ride on a passing tug  boat, the only means he had of  reaching Vancouver by water  was by rowing or sailing his  small skiff. Such a voyage took  as much as* three days each  way.  No real road contact with  Gibson's Landing existed for  more than 20 yjears after his  arrival. In the meantime, when  the strait was too rough for  water travel, the trip could  be made on foot, with tlie aid  of a network of skid-roads  which even then interlocked  the area. By portaging through  the woods from one to another  of these, the pre-emptor could  make his way to Howe Sound,  and with the aid of a pack-  horse bring in supplies from  the boat landing there.  Almost the only local industry during the 1890's was* log- .  ging, much of whoch was car  ried on by gangs of men working for the Hastings Mill in  Burrard Inlet. Tom Roberts  worked for this mill during  the months he was not making  the improvements* on his preemption required to procure  clear Crown  Grant  title.  In 1898 the Klondike gold  rush lured Tom Roberts north.  Unlike most miners, who were  confined to hand digging, he  took with him a steam donkey-  engine, which he operated with  the assistance of Frank Wilier,  a stationary engineer. With  the aid of this piece of equipment the men spent two successful years in the gold-fields.  Tom's sister Alice had crossed the continent to Vancouver  the same year that he arrived  there byi sailing ship. She married William Steinbrunner, and  the family established themselves on what is now called  the Elphinstone Bay Road, a  mile and ��� a half north-west of  the mouth of Roberts Creek.  Tom's brother Francis also  made the journey out from Eng  land. He worked his way back  home via cattle train and boat,  and in 1900 brought out the  parents and his own family;  three sons, Tom, Harry and Bill  and a daughter Ida.  On his return from the Yukon, Tom Roberts moved the  family from a house they had  built on the present P.B. Long  homesite to the Fairview district in Vancouver, where he  married May Wilier, daughter of his former engineer.  A few yeers; later he preempted again, this time in the  Peardonville district, south of  Abbotsford. Throughout the  remainder of his life he took  an active part in the Masonic  Order, the Orange  Lodge, the  Yukoners association and, during his last 20 years, the Old  Age Pensioners. His final homo  near the MSA hospital in  which he died, was located on  south-west corner of its- Trans-  Canada Highway and the Mac-  Lennan Road, adjacent to the  Village of Abbotsford. His private water system was enlarged until it served as a municipal water system.  Three nephews still live on  the lower mainland coast to  which Thorn.'.:- Roberts came  70 years, age; Harry Roberts, of  Nelson Island, Herb Steinbrunner, of Gibsons, and Billy  Roberts, who still makes his  home at Roberts* Creek.

The 33rd annual convention  of Ladies Auxiliary, British  Columbia and Northwest Command to the Canadian Legion  at Revelstoke was attended by  members of the Sunshine Coast  Legion Ladies Auxiliaries who  brought back interesting accounts of the work done at the  convention. They will report to  their   various   auxiliaries.  A.W. Lundell, MLA, welcoming the delegates, said that behind every successful man  stood a woman and by the same  token behind every successful  Legion branch was a successful  auxiliary.  Former past president William McKinstry who represented the provincial command declared that if it had not been  for the support offered by the  auxiliaries 50 percent of the  branches would have ceased to  exist.  Many of the younger members, he said, are critical today  of the unswerving determination of the oldsters but when  they in turn become the latter  they will understand fully and  bless wholeheartedly the spade-  work done by their predecessors.
