TWO PROMINENT PEOPLE DIE  {By Mrs. N. Haley)  Mrs. Annette Atlee, prominent pianist who had lived in  the former De Grusey home in  the Headlands for the past 24  years, died on July 18 in St.  Paul's hospital.  She was born in London,  England, and raised at Swanley  Junction, in Kent and came to  Canada with her parents when  she was in her teens. The family lived for many years on 7th  avenue in Burnaby.  Mrs. Atlee studied music under Frederick Chubb and later  opened a studio in the Badminton Building in Vancouver.  During this period she did considerable cG-iccrt work and  was a much-wanted accompanist.  On moving to Gibsons she  continued her music teaching  and became interested in community work. Shfe was at one.  time president of the Women's  Institute and' later? of St." Bartholomew's ' Anglican church  Women's Auxiliary.  Friends who knew her well  know her' musical memories  will be carried on through the  foundation she gave her many  pupils. Because of this, she will  be sadly missed. Her musical  experiences in the Sunshine  Coast area alone are such that  a good many people will regard the loss the community  has suffered by her . death as  ���considerable, because her replacement will not be easy.  Besides her husband, John,  a- prominent singer, Mrs. Atlee  leaves a son, Michael, a sister-  in-law, Mrs. John Speer; and  niece, Daphne of Duncan.  Tne funeral service was held  Tuesday, July 21, in he Memorial chapel of the T. Edwards  and Co., in Vancouver with  Rev. Denis F,^ Harris of St.  . Bartholomew's Anglican  church officiating. Cremation  followed.  Unusual boat  Weekend visitors on the Pen  insula were Captain H.J.C.  Terry and Mrs. Terry on their  boat Adventuress II. The Adventuress II is the largest fibre  glass boat on the continent. Sh��  is 44 feet 10 inches long with  a beam of 10 feet 3 inches and  carries three quarters of a ton  of batteries.  Captain Terry is president of  Northland Navigation. Their  home is at Dollarton, B.C.. Mr.  and Mrs. Colin Thomas John  Terry, son and daughter-in-law  of Captain and Mrs. Terry were  aboard the Adventuress I. The  young Terrys live on Rabbit  Lane, British Properties, West  Vancouver.  N  bdi  ew suodivision  A subdivision with a great  future is now on the market,  Harold Wilson of Totem Realty announces. It is known as  Georgia Views and was the former Dougall Bluff, a landmark  for the Gibsons area.  There are 92 lots available  in the area which has been  worked over to the point where  it has been surveyed and roads  put through. There are some  exceptional lots, Mr. Wilson  says, lots with a view unequalled almost anywhere in British  Columbia.  Prizes  unclaimed  So far nobody has claimed  the top prizes offered during  the July 1 celebration. Those  prizes were a mix-master for  the holder of program ticket  number 364 and the two prizes  on the ballot ticket draw, an  all-wave transistor radio as  first prize to ticket No. 219 and  and a movie camera with color  film as second prize to ticket  No? 216.  These numbers will not b2  published again and unless the  pN*zes are claimed new' numbers will be published in the  next isG*ue of the Coast News-  Guests from  i  The two Junior Red Cross  members from Elphinstone  High school, Gibsons, who  have been chosen British Columbia delegates to the Junior  Red Cross International Study  Centre in Toronto, opening  August 11, will be showing  hospitality in their homes for  the week prior to the opening  of the centre, to delegates from  Japan  and Korea.

Over 150 delegates  from 40 nations of the world  will be staying with Canadian  families  An explanation  Some readers may get a copy  of this issue with the first paragraph of a story omitted on  page six. The story concerns  the Johnston twins who are in  the Gaza area of the Near East  with the UNEF. The twins, Ron  and Roger, are sons of Magistrate and Mrs. Andy Johnston  of Sechelt and their letters,  home have proven so interesting some articles have been  prepared from them..  At this point the reader can  take up the scory on page six.  DAUGHTER CHRISTENED  Kathleen Anne was the name  given the daughter of Mr. and  Mrs. E.H. Burritt of Gower  Point at a christening ceremony Sunday, July 26 in Gibson Memorial United church  with Rev. David Donaldson officiating. Relatives attended  from Victoria and Vancouver.  A luncheon followed at Danny's Dining Room with afternoon tea later at the Burritt  home. Aunt and uncle, Mr. and  Mrs;. Lloyd Jones from Libya,  North Africa, brought her original christening gown from  Italy.  (By Hubert Evans)  A life devoted in outstanding  measure to helping others came  to its close at Roberts Creek  when Marguerite (Margo) wife  of Mr. CF. Haslam, died suddenly on the morning of Saturday, July 11. A Unitarian service in Vancouver was followed by cremation.  Marguerite Haslam was in  her 69th year. Before coming  to live permanently at Roberts  Creek she pioneered in parent-  teacher work in Vancouver and  largely through her efforts the  local PTA was formed.  She founded the Roberts  Creek-Players Club and was active in the Red Cross. Adul.  cclucation and international affairs were among her major  concerz:; i A person of energy  and of exceptinal perception,  her mind and heart were con-  _-crated to the task of human  beterment, both near and far.  Mrs. Haslam was born in the  State"of "Washington.  Her "father,    Andrew   Macfarlane,   a  law graduate  of Queen's  University*, Kingston, Ont., brought  bk:   family   to   Vancouver   in  1894 and shared  in its  development She trained at the o_d  Vancouver Normal School and  taught at Alert Bay and in Burnaby while   her husband  was  c>. ers_ao during the First War.  Later she lived at Pender Harbour where her husband had a  logging camp. She first visited  Roberts   Creek as   a   girl  and  r.ummered   on   the  Macfarlane  beach, of which, her father was  part owner.  She leaves her husband, CF.  Haslam, her daughter and son-  in-law, Joan and John Davies  and three grandchildren, Kim,  Tony and Megan; also her brother, Thomas Duncan Macfarlane of Vancouver.  Drowning mishap  Michael Dennehy, 29, of  1972 Whyte Ave., Vancouver,  was drowned off the Salmon  Rock end of Keats Island while  swimming with a companion  on July 17. Dennehy had arrived at the Keats Island Baptist camp the day previously.  He and his companion went  swimming in rough water  shortly before noon and botli  men, finding themelve in difficulty made for the shore. The  companion made it but Dennehy did not. His body was recovered five hours later by  Gibsons skin divers. An inquest has been arranged.  icnic  TUNA REPORTED  Good catches of Albacore  tuna were reported over the  weekend 50 miles off Destruction Island to 40 miles off Es-  teban Point off the Washington  and  British  Columbia   coasts.  Sightings of tuna were also  reported some 80 miles off  Cape Cook which is located on  the northwest coast of Vancouver Island.  FIREMEN BUSY  Things have been happening  on the property purchased for  the No. 2 firehail in the area.  Work parties have poured the  foundation and will soon be  constructing the new building.  It is hoped that the trucks and  equipment will be in the new  hall and well protected this  winter.  explores  Ft Langley  Thirty-one adults and five  children attended the picnic  party arranged by the Women's  Institute of Gibsons which was  held this year at Fort Langley.  The party, which left at S  a.m. stopped en route at the  Queen Elizabeth Arboretum to  see the beautiful display ol  shrubs, flowers and wonderful  gardens and then on through  fine farmlands to Fort Langley  Community Park where lunck  was arranged, and judging-  from appetites the open air ha_!  done a world of good. Ft. Langley W.I. had arranged fire so  there could be hot water for  tea.  After lunch the party stopped at the Arts and Crafts  shop to sse the leathercraft;  pottery:, copper tooled articles-  end iiower craft which were  on display. IV.e Community  hall was also inspected.  Parking the bus in which  they travelled to the Fori  Langley post, a Hudson Bar  company post of more than 10$  years ago, the party was greeted by the post custodian who  poimed out points and objects  of interest, giving explanations  as he moved along. The old  fort had been rebuilt as it wad  years ago except for one section because of railway tracks  en some of the original site.  The   one   original   site   left  was the store which is now an  h._:orical museum with its relics of pioneer days. A roll call  cf the first school is on display  and one cf the rup"..?*~ c^ill lives  at Fort Langley and is nc-.v 98  years old. One of the most interesting parts; of the trip was  ;.ceir_2 the great timbers squared with a boardax and used to  make    the   building.    Wooden  pegs were used in place of nails  and split cedar shakes covered  the roof.-    -    ���   ���- ������.*���,-���--v- .- --���������������  The   old   officers'   and  s.aff  quarters were also visited and  it  was found  to be  furnished  with much of the original furniture    with    ancient    clocks,  rugs and cupboards which had  wrought    iron    hinges.    Long  tables  and   benches made   by  hand and pegged together made  one realize  that the things of  today are the history of tomorrow. It wac also thrilling to recall   that   most   oi   what   was  s.een   came   by   way  oi*   Cape  Horn and up the Fraser River-  It was explained that it was  here   in  1858   that Sir  James  Douglas read the proclamation  making   British    Columbia    -3  Crown colony with Fort Langley as its provisional capital.  After thanking Mr. MacKenzie, the custodian, for his*  thoughtful courtesy, the party  leit for home via Deas Island  tunnel and the Oak Street  bridge. Tne picnic was declared the best held so far and th*.  W.I. had an invitation to retuns  to Fort Langley again.  Five injured  in collision  Five persons were injured  in a car accident on Sechelt  Highway at the DVA project  near Gibsons on July 17. A  party of seven was riding in a  light truck driven by Marcius  Ward of Gibsons and was taking the turn into the DVA area  when another car driven by  Ian MacLean of Roberts Creek  moving in the same direction,  turned out to pass the Ward  truck as it made the turn.  Those injured were Mrs. J.  Marshall, bad bruises; Mrs. M.  Ward, brken collarbone; Jerry  Ward, 11, broken right arm;  and Dave Milligan, 12, fingers  Lynn Ward, 6, broken pelvis,  dislocated. The other occupants  of the truck, Sandra Ward and  the driver were shaken up. All  were treated at St. Mary's Hospital.  CREDIT WAS OMITTED  In the last issue of the Coast  News a report was carried covering Red Cross activities and  no credit was given to the organization which had done th*  work. Actually it was the Roberts Creek Red Cross branch  which had done the work and  the credit belongs to the members of that branch. Coast News, July 30, 1959.

Who isn't sick of strikes?  One comment which can be made without dispute regardless of the rights and wrongs involved in the present British Columbia strike situation is* that the general public is heartily sick  of. strikes. No other province in Canada during the last several  years has experienced so much trouble as we have had in British  Columbia.  What is the reason for this continued labor unrest along  the entire Pacific coast, specifically in areas in which woodworkers operate? It goes back to the early years of this century and  has erupted spasmodically into dangerous situations. Why are  "labor relations among wood-workers rarely on the peaceful side?  A careful review of this subject written by someone capable of  analyzing the trends during the years when the "wobblies" were  xuling the rocst down to the present day would make extremely  interesting reading. On second consideration it would take more  than a review. It would need a book.  An examination of the situations down through the years  would reveal one thing and that is the fight for power among the  various unions seeking control of wood-workers. It could be that  ihere is something of the same alive today in British Columbia  unionism but how serious it is is something of which the writer  has no knowledge. Perhaps tlie fight may not be between union  organizations. It could be inside the unions instead.  However what is written here is largely* conjectural based  ���on the past history of unionism on the Pacific coast. The Coast  News as an oditorial medium is in favor of unionism and its editor can recall the days of Gompers, Green, Debs, Foster, Hutche-  son, Lewis, Petrillo and others. There were stormy days in the  era when these names were beacons in labor strife and those  stormy days continue, it seems, with added emphasis in British  Columbia. The question is ��� why?  Friendship a great help  We can think of no better way to create friendship among  ���Ihe nations of the world than to have the young people, who will  lie tomorrow's leaders, meet each other and talk their differences  aut. This is what will happen during the first week of August  ���when about 150 youngsters from over 40 nations will be guests  of Canadian families as part of the International Study! Centre,  sponsored by the Canadian Junior Red Cross. Two will be guests  ���af Sunshine Coast families shortly.  When these youngsters return to their homeland whether  st be India, Pakistan, Ceylon or South Africa, the word Canada  ���will mean more to them than just a huge color spot on the map.  Ten years, or fifteen years hence, when our delegate to the United  Nations speaks up on behalf of a burning issue he will know that  he has friends listening in all parts of the world.  Nothing is more important in this* troubled world than to  lay the foundations for some sound understanding among the dif-  ierent peoples of the world, different races, different religions.  We wholeheartedly endorse this kind of activity.  Gtnadoy  ' Prepared'.by theVResearch Staff of  !ENCYCLOPEDIA   CANADIAHA  What Is The Largest Member  Of The Canadian Cat Family?  The cougar is the largest member of the cat family to be found  :sh Canada. It is also known as  a puma, mountain lion, panther  and catamount. The coat of the  adult is a plain yellowish brown,  .reddish brown, or grey; the un-  alerparts are a dirty white and  there is a black tip on the tail.  Adults are from 6 to 8V2 feet  "long and weight from 100 to 175  ���pounds. The cougar is usually  restricted to the mountainous  regions of southern British Columbia and Alberta, but some  Save been seen in Saskatchewan  and New Brunswick.  Cougars prey on a wide variety  af animals, from insects to deer  and domestic animals. In some  areas sheep-raising is impossible  'because of their depredations,  and they kill many colts in  Horse-ranching areas. They are  quite capable of kiling a man,  -hough there are few instances  of their having done so.  Who Built Underground  tog Cabins?  The Salish Indians, living in  die mountain-valley region of  southern British Columbia, were  faced with the problem of building houses able to provide  warmth in the intense cold of  ���'fiat   region.    They   solved   the  problem by building their houses  partly underground. Covered  with layers of earth and lined  with cedar bark, the huts were  very warm. Water often seeped  in, however, if they had been  inadequately   water-proofed.  Which Sea Creatures Have Both  Eyes On One Side Of The Head?  Not sea monsters, but a common group of fish called the flatfish have both eyes on the same  side of the head. These fish lie  on the sea bottom. The lower  side is usually white, and the  upper takes on the coloration  and pattern of the bottom on  which the fish lies. Young flatfish are normal in having one  eye on each side of the head.  'They- swim- ivipright, but soon  they show a tendency to lie on  ���one side on the bottom and the  cranium becomes twisted, with  the eye on the lower side moving up to the upper surface.  Members of this group are the  brill, flounder, kilibut, plaice,  sand dab, sole and witch. The  most important is the kalibut.  ���It is found en both the Pacific  and Atlantic coasts, and is probably widely distributed in the  Arctic. The Pacific halibut may  reach a size of 470 pounds and  an age of 35 years or more.  $50,000 fund  for scholarships  A $5.0,000 graduate scholarship fund has been donated to  the University of British Columbia by H.R.. MacMillan.  President N.AM. MacKenzie.  with the permission of the  Queen, announced to dinner  guests on July 15, the day Her  Majesty was a guest of the University.  The first five scholarships,  each valued at $1,000, will be  awarded in September, President MacKenzie said. They* will  be for graduate work in any  field at U.B.C.

Fish is an excellent choice because it grills, roa!sts, and fries  "beautifully over the coals in a  short period.  Cooking times vary with the  thickness of the fish, the distance it is placed from the  seals, the heat of the coals and  the weather. Here are a few directions which have been supplied by; the home economists  af Canada's Department of  Fisheries.  Any type of small whole fish  may be grilled or barbecued.  Scale, clean, wash and dry the  fish. Heads and tails may be  left on. Sprinkle the body cavities with salt, then brush  the fish generously on the outside with melted fat or cooking  ���ail. Instead of brushing with  :.at, some prefer to wrap their  fish in strips of bacon, securing the bacon with toothpicks  or small skewers. This is a popular treatment for trout.  Place the fish directly on a  "hot, well-greased grill, several  inches above glowing coals.  Cook, turning once.  To decide whether fish is  eooked, when it separates into  flakes easily, it is ready.  An excellent way to cook  .fish outdoors is to wrap individual servings in aluminum  foil, then roast directly on  glowing embers.  To package, place each serving on a piece of foil, slightly  off centre. Season with salt  and pepper. If using steaks or  fillets you may wish to top  them with a little barbecue  sauce or a butter-dotted vegetable garnish. Bring the foil up  over the fish so that the edges  meet on three sides. Close the  ���Edges    with   double   folds   to  majke each package steam tight  iPlace the packages, directly  on glowing coals. Roast, allowing about five minutes cooking  time for thin fillets and about.  10 minutes cooking time for  small whole fish or fish steaks  about 1 inch thick. When the  allotted cooking time is up,  open a test pacpage to see if  the fish is done.  Pan frying is a -ravor?;e cooking method of campers. Scale,  clean and wash the fish. Small  fish   are   usually  dressed  and  fried whole, while large fish  are filleted or cut into steaks.  Dip the fish in water, then in  a mixture consisting of Vz cup  of yellow corn meal, Vz cup of  flour, and 1 tablespoon of salt.  Have a skillet very hot and the  bottom well covered with cooking oil or bacon fat. Fry the  fish until brown on one side;  turn and brown on the other  side. "When the fish will flake  easily on testing with a fork,  serve immediately while it is  crisp, juicy and hot.  Sechelt news items  BY MRS. A.A.

Twin sons of Magistrate and  Mrs. Andrew Johnston who are  in the near East with UNEF or  the United Nations Expeditionary Force have written home  on their experiences in the  Gaza strip area and surrounding country. Ron and Roger  Johnston, the twins, have sent  home some interesting letters  and parts of them have been  culled for a series of articles  in the Coast News.  WANT ADS ARE  SALESMEN  The correspondence starts at  Raffa on the Gaza strip where  the two travellers had landed  from Athens, Greece. They reported a striking trip over the  Mediterranean to El Arish airport a UNEF base. ,  The weather in November was  described as more like June with  the men wearing summer uniforms. The Canadians were described as the most popular of  the troops perhaps because they  were the best trained and paid.

Guard duties  were done with instructions lo  shoot if shot at but not otherwise.  Cigaretttes for the troops were  extremely -cheap and the boys  made good progress among the  natives because the giving of a  "budkshee cigaret" made them  ���quite popular.  Ron reported he was smack in  Nasser's domain at Rajah, Egypt,  30 miles from Gaza. He writes:  "Just now I heard a shot. I suppose it is a guard shooting at  an Egyptian stealing supplies.  It happens quite often around  here."  At times they were in a veritable No-Man's-Land surrounded  by minefields and therefore confined to camp. The surprising  thing was the way the camel  trains and shepherds wended  their way through the mine  field without a casualty.  "Desert Fox Roger" as he signed himself, explained he discovered the hives he thought he  had were bedbug bites. The  camp was, at the time of the  Israeli war, in the centre of  things and was practically de-  troyed then rebuilt but the bedbugs apparently suffered few  casualties.  Commenting on the younger  natives, he found them poorly  dressed in anything they could  get, small in stature and spent  the day picking up camel dung  as fuel for their ovens.  Returning to the theme of  thievery Roger reported some  Egyptian was shot at every night  because with them the real crime  'was not stealing but getting  caught.  He told of one Palestinian woman, a refugee who could speak  English, French, Palestinian and  numerous Arabic dialects who  was apparently unable to go  back to Israel. She spent her  time wandering the plains. There  were many more like her, he  reported, and with a great number of children.  The boys met numerous Bedouins and from them they learned many of their words. They  found them poverty-stricken and  with the aid of some sandwiches  they would become pally and be  photographed.  Roger, back to bedbugs tells  about trading his bed and mattress at Rajah in the Gaza strip  for an army cot thereby getting  rid of what was biting him. Billets that were being used were  army huts which were used  previously by British soldiers.  -They had a cement floor with  a half wall with the other half  and ceiling of canvas. Daytime  temperature was 80 and at night  40 to 50 which was regarded as  quite cold.  The surf beach, described   as  beautiful sand, featured waves  up to 20 feat at times. The men  ran in and rode the waves until  dumped on the beach, some surf  boards were available. In the  welfare room there were record  players, tape recorders, a piano  and book and magazines. The  camp also had a camera club  which indulged in trips during  off-duty periods.  Roger reported they were in  the rainy season, November, and  a rain usually lasted half-an-hour  "which brought out vipers and  asps necessitating the wearing  of boots as a precaution against  bites. He also said Ron was learning  the   guitar   and   when  the  6    Coast News, July 30, 1959.  camp orchestra was formed,  Roger intended to get in witl.  some instrument.  The boys were lucky enough,  to meet some Norwegian troops  from Trondhjem, Norway, with,  which the family has associations and they had some merry  evenings singing, accompanied  on accordions, guitars and other  instruments with the expression;  "Skoal" resounding occasionally.

By PAT WELSH  There was a gala mood July  18 at the Redroofs Resort  grounds for the RedWel Ladies  Guild annual summer fair. It  was a beautiful summer day  and the grounds were thronged  with people long before the official opening hour. Promptly  at two o'clock Mrs. P. White,  president of the guild, introduced Mrs. M. Meuse of Hyda-  wayi, who then declared the  fair open.  Pies, cake, cookies and other  items vanished in a remarkably short time from the home  baking stall, always a special  feature. The white elephant  stall did a roaring business,  while the sewing stall with its  gay array of goods was another  busy spot. The small fry stall  and contest table was alive  with moppets guessing the  number of buttons in a jar  which also contained a fifty  cent piece.  The Garden club stall was  gay    with    beautiful    flowers,  plants, fresh vegetables and  fruits, the tea tables under the  trees were a popular spot to  sit and chat with friends while  enjoying a cup of tea or coffee,  tea cup reading was also featured.  Another attractive stall was  the jewelry counter, where  small girls and their mothers  bought bracelets, earrings,  necklaces and lapel pins. At the  raffle ticket booth, tickets were  sold for the hand made quilt,  designed hy\ Mrs. El. Klusendorf  and quilted by members of the  guild, and a large teenage doll  wearing tiny high heeled sandals with a complete wardrobe  to delight any girl's heart. The  Garden club sold tickets for  two Cape Cod chairs made and  painted by Mr. H. Allen.  Winner of the quilt was Mrs.  P. Welsh; the doll, Mrs. Cooke,  Welcome Beach; garden chairs,  Ron Bendy; guessing contest,  Tommy Burrows. In charge of  hte stalls were: Tea, Mr. and  Mrs.  Bill  Grundy assisted   by  Mrs. E. Brooks and Mrs. Q.  Burrows who also read teacup?.  Sewing, Mrs R. Stewart and  Mrs. G.B. Simpson assisted by  Mrs. E. Piper.  White elephant, Mrs. E.

The fair was a huge success  and members of the guild thank  Coast News, July 30, 1959.    7  Mr. and Mrs. J. Cooper for the  use of their grounds, chairs,  tables and cantaloupes, also E.  White, A.

This PTA quite active  By Joan Warn  Roberts Creek P.T.A. though  small in its membership, has  recorded a busy and productive  .year. As it has done for some  years, it sponsored the Cub  Pack and Scout Group in this  district. During the winter  months, together with the Community Association, it instituted and kept going a weekly  square dance for families. The  Christmas season saw a fine  concert and carol night pro-'  grammed by* the school, with  gifts and treats beside the  Christmas tree and a gift stall  and refreshments provided by  the P.T.A.  Education Week was observed with open house at the  school with tea. being served  by the ladies of the association. '  Later, in April, the group organized the mobile T.B. Clinic  in the area. During the latter  part of May a really colorful  carnival took place in the  school grounds enjoyed by a  fine turn-out of young people  and their elders. The proceeds  helped the PTA exchequer. A  grocery raffle earlier ih the  year also gained a tidy sum.  Voted   toward   the   scholarship  fund  was the  usual  $25  donated from year to yiear, donations  to    Scouts,   to   school >  needs   and   to   other   various .  needs in the district.  At the suggestion of the PTA  a fine film projector was placed in the school to replace the  worn model Although the PTA  offered to assist in getting the  projector, the school board  found means, and no financial  help was asked, The school is  now able to enjoy the helpful  films obtained by Mr. Jones,  the principal.  Several buzz-sessions and  talks were among the programs  planned, on themes such as  parent education at night  school, a discussion of the  booklet, Education at the Crossroads, buzz-sessions on teenagers in our society, and what  is the real purpose of a PTA?  A film program was shown on  Cubs and Scouts. A wilf life  program included bird-recordings and specimen nature diaries and items of interest. A bird  recording was donated to the  school.  The whole of next year's officer list has not yet been elected, but Ernest Fossett has stepped into the presidency, Mrs.  S.
