 Provincial Lierary,  9  B* C*  DANNY'S  DINING ROOM  JUST  FINE  FOOD  Phone GIBSONS 140  SERVING  THE  GROWING   SUNSHINE  COAST  Fublished in Gibsons, B.C. Volume 11, Number 32, August 20  1959.  ff^pfr^.t^^g mf inirr"J1 itr fir **���''���**���'**��� j^ w- ��� *-**��' <��� ���n*-***^***��� ��� -n���  RAY  WHITING  RADIO-CONTROLLED  PHONE      OKO      GIBSONS  itj  24"HR. COURTEOUS SERVICE  Top winner in this year's  Sunohine Coast Fall Fair was  Mr�� Lee Hartley of Reid Road,  Gibsons area with Mrs Celia  Stroshein of Wilson Creek second and Mrs. Cecil Chamberlin of Reid Road third. Total  points have not been tabulated  yet but these three had the  largest number of prize winning exhibits.  "In summing up the 195^  Fair I would place in the highest position the excellent cooperation of the committee.  For several days many of the  members have worked hard  and the help given by some, of  the organizations in the district, particularly the Kiwanis  and the Legion, is much appreciated and will be remembered,"' said Mrs. M. LeFeuvre,  secretary of the Fair Committee.  "All judges were present and  spoke well of the entries', the  staging and the hospitality of  the management. Mr G.A. Muir  head, district agriculturist of  Cloverdale, B,C. judged the  Junior Calf club's animals.  Mr. Muirhead has a way of  holding the attention of these  young members and it was interesting, to hear him explain  and to observe, the good and  bad points of each animal.   .  "In praise of the concessions  we were pleased to hear the  remarks of many vistors. A  stranger to the district was surprised to see Gibsons grown  peaches. He is now convinced  that peaches do grow on this  peninsula.  "An enjoyable dance was a  fine finish to a fine Fair and  thanks go to all who helped  to make it so, this includes exhibitors in  outlying districts."  This year's keeping of the  exhibits to one side . of the  highway in the School Hall  and the Anglican Parish hall  was an idea which will be followed up in the years to come.  The only event held on the  other side of the highway was  the Kiwanis and Legion Bingo  on Friday and Saturday in the  Elementary school basement-  There -were also more exhibits which supplied their own  shelter, the B.C. Electric portable greenhouse, which was  supervised by Bob Norminton,  Sechelt regional manager and  J.J. Galbraith from the regional office at Powell River.  The other exhibit which took  care of itself was that of Gibsons Hardware and the Rockgas company which had its own  tent in front of the Schooi hall  in which lighting, cooking methods and heating facilities supplied through Rockgas ingenuity.  One of the interesting items  was the amount of literature  available. This* harks back to  the days of bigger fairs when  one could walk through the  commercial exhibit and come  out. with a good-sized handful  of literature on almost every  exhibit.  One came across the interesting air views of the Sunshine Coast arranged by Totem  Realty. Next came Galley's  woodwork exhibit, the Gibsons Electric Crowne Sewing  machine exhibit and ths Pen  Television experiments and displays of hi-fi equipment and  tape recordings. This display  also had Jack Gordon with his  interesting designs produced  by the harmograph drawing  some amazing things by the  simple method of swinging  pendulums.  P  romising art wpr  k  This year's art display at the  Sunshine Coast Fall Fair was  one of the most interesting exhibited for the last few years.  There were some local scenes  involved, one by Reg Adams,  member of the village commission who portrayed in oil the  everyday scene involving the  marker light on the reef opposite Gibsons and another by.  Kathleen Wells which was not  specific in its locale but could  have been one of numerous  ���spots not too far away. Kathleen Wells also had an excellent oil depicting flowers,  which appeared realistic.  There were also horses'  heads by Heather Brace'well  and views by Mrs. A. Trueman  and Beatrice Davey.  In the copper line Mrs. E.  Lowe had an excellent exhibit  along with Mrs. Honeyman and  the work on them displayed  considerable care and painstaking effort.  An item which can be included in the art section with  also some claim to the needlework   division   would   be  that  Just ii  e oeaven  It  is just  like  heaven!  This is the considered opinion of a newcomer to the district who came all the way  from Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories.  Mr. and Mrs. J. McComb  who now live on Reid Road are  the newcomers who have left  the extreme cold and mosquitoes and black flies of Yellow-  knife to live in Gibsons area  which Mrs,. McComb described  as just like heaven.  Mr. McComb was involved  in mining in the Yellowknife  area and both of them decided  there was a more pleasant  place in which to live somewhere else than the Northwest  Territories.  of the exhibits by Mr. and  Mrs. Peter Trappitt of Pender  Harbour with their interesting  work on nylon with colorfast  washable paint assisted by  some outline work embroidered to show shorelines and so  on. The pictures were of downtown Vancouver and an ouline  of the Pender Harbour shoreline with explanations, such  as place names.  The work by the Trappitts  was something new to the Sunshine Coast and shows possibilities. The picture showing  the centre of Vancouver was  finely done and showed diligent work.  To get back to the specific  art works on display there was  an interesting crayon sketch  by Mrs. V.E. Tyner of Madeira  Park which revealed a lightness of hand in the delicate depiction of the scene.  Another work explained to  onlookers by a piping voice  which said simply "That one's*  me," was produced by Irene  Stronstad and there was a resemblance between the picture  and the young character who  stood by and looked at himself  There was also a pen and ink  sketch by Irene Stronstad  which revealed considerable  skill.  JULY 1 DRAW  A new number has been selected to help wind up the July  1 celebration draw. Unclaimed  up to press time is the color  movie camera and film which  was the second prize on the  Mermaid Queen ballot draw.  Tht number that could have  claimed it last week was 559.  This is now cancelled and the  new number is 834. Anyone  having this number should  contact the Coast News  (By   Helen  McSavaney)  In the parish and school  halls the transformation from  drab bare walls to flag adorned exhibition halls was quite a  sight. The fall fair committee  was busv for hours hanging  iiags and paper cornucopias,  setting up tables and covering  them with paper, and setting  out displays of fruit, flower?  ?nd handicrafts.  The weaving and handicrafts  were in the Parish hall. Along  one wall were small woven  mats, oil paintings, specimens  of copper tooling, and two  maps done by Mr. and Mrs.  Peter Trappitt of Madeira  Park. These maps were painted on nylon material with the  borders and shorelines embroidered in blue and red. One  of these maps was of Vancouver and showed the various  buildings in great detail. By  looking closely one could make  out the Marine Building, the  Hotel   Vancouver,   the    Court  Fire which caused -^proximately $10,000 damage destroyed the summer home of  Dr. Harry Wallace, assistant  minister of Ryerson United  church in Vancouver early  Tuesday morning.  It was noticed by a passing  fish boat operator at about  5:45 a.m., who continued shouting toward shore until someone in a neighboring house investigated. The neighbor  promptly aroused the people  in the burning house who were  Mrs. Young, wife of Dr. M*  Young of Vancouver and her  two young children.  An alarm was phoned  into  Gibsons. Meanwhile neighbors  helped get out of the burning  home what they could.  One of the unusual events in  ihe fire was the fact the W.B.  Boucher family a few doors  away was notified of the lire  from Vancouver. It appears  Capt. Thomas of the Bain-  bridge while en route noticed  the i-ames, spotted the house,  knew? it was the Wallace home  .end raised his wife via marine  telephone. She in turn telephoned the Bouchers. The  whole, episode, spotting and  telephone took not more than  three .minutes.  Cavse of the fire is undeter  mined. Dr. Young was to have  come to the home Tuesday to  start a holiday. Instead he took  his family back to Vancouver.  Following the fire neighbors  did what they could to assist  Mrs. Young and her family.  The burned home is on the  shoreline about half-way between Gibsons and Granthams  hill.  Neighbors were particularly  thankful for the .work of the  Volunteer Fire Services who  responded as quickly as they  could and did yeoman work in  keeping the flames, which at  times were intense, frosn  spreading to the home to the  south, owned by a Mr. Mo  Cluckey. The Summerfield  home to the north was also  watched  closely.  Two fire trucks attended the  fire and poured about 2,000  gallons on the blaze, assisted  by a portable fire department  pump which pumped water  from the beach.. The tank truck  made two or three hurried trips  to Gibsons hydrant to  fill up-  There were no hydrants in  Granthams area which forced  the firemen to get their water  from Gibsons hydrants in the  tank truck. This* truck remained on the job at the fire until  acouL   1.30   p.m.  Tuesday.  No Sunshine. Coast Fall Fair  would not be complete without the Children's Parade on  the  Saturday   afternoon.  Traffic stops in all direction^  as the youngster; have their  fun. Plenty of cameras were  in evidence and some good  pictures should result.  The leader of the parade   i^  Piper -Eric  ThomsoH-and'the'  skirl  o'   the  pipes   brings   the  Regatta problem  The Aug. 30 regatta has progressed to the point where an  announcement can be cxpecte*,';  shortly on the setup, for the  boat races planned-  There have been inquiries at  the Coast News office concerning the clasriiicafcions planned  but the committee is still exploring the possibilities and  will have an announcement lor  next week.  The swimming events will  be the same as was on the program for the July 1 celebration and they will be run off  as though none of the events,  were held July 1 when rain  interfered with completion of  the p3jgram  crowd to attention, with toei  tc*.*o?Mr *.  -q.^-r    -o r>i-yp\rc- ^coul^i".

From Tuesday, Sept. 3, the  usual enquiries and amplications for service can be made  by calling long distance operator and asking for Zenith  8000 ��� a 'no charge' number  to B.C.

Long distance, informa-  onrie  Tuesday night's village commission meeting in Gibsons  granted a building permit to  Mrs. Mary Tweedy of Gibsons  for the construction of a $6,000  four-room, one storey dwelling  on Ccchrane road.  The meeting also passed accounts totalling $3,762.40, the  largest sum $3,179.81 covering  water capital with the remainder on small items.  t:cn and repair service will  r..III be handled by the opera-  ���*.-*������������- rt Gib-**):-.? and Sechelt.  Reason for the closing of the  t'vo oLi.c. was given by Bert  F. Abram, district commercial  manager, who said more efficient service would be provided by the concentration of all  commercial work in the North  Vancouver office, where a larger staff is* always available.  "Construction of new  build- *  ings to house automatic equipment at both Sechelt and Gibsons   will    commence    in    the  near future," said Mr. Abram.  Dial service for the two com- ���  munities is scheduled to go into operation  next summer.

The other map was of the  Pender Harbour area and  showed the various tiny settlements and all the roads connecting them. Theoe maps must  have taken hours of work and  interest anyone who has the  ���slightest knowledge of the  area.  Also among the handicrafts  were an intricate basket of  popsickle sticks and a driftwood ornament decorated with  flowers of the 'Chinee lantern'  plant. This ornament would  lend color to the dullest of  rooms and showed real imagination.  At one end of the hall was a  display of souvenirs from New-  Zealand, Australia and Java.  In this interesting display were  some fine examples of native  skills in woodworking, a nut-  bowl, salad servers, and a  lamp base. Also among the  display were a large turtle  shell, which must have belonged to a turtle of a size such as  we never get here, which is  rather a good thing, several  examples of coral and ishells,  a beautiful pair of embroidered sandals from Java and two  large letter openers, also from  Java.  There was also a weaving  clioplay in -ihe Parish hall, with  a loom set up ready for work  and a rug already made lying  beside it.  Jn the Hchool hall were the  flcwerr, fruit, baking, and sewing displays. Despite a rather  poor growing season the exhibits were on the large side  and cf good quality. An exhibit by the Junior Garden Club  was especially good, in fact  they ;-.2em to have had better  luck in the way of potatoes,  chard and beans than the adults. The adults had the edge  on them, however, with corn,  onions and cabbages, especially cabbages.  Also in -the produce section  was a single entry of fruit,  flowers, milk, butter and vegetables that was truly remark  able, both for quality and quantity; and in the same section  an entry of different fruits and  berries exhibited in a wheel-  shaped carton that was very  good and an excellent indication of what the area is capable  of producing.  Mr. Vince Bracewell displayed honey and honeycombs  that compared the natural  comb with the type used by  bee keepers. It was interesting to see the large, twisted  comb natural to the bee and  compare it with the neat  square comb used commercially,  In  the  flower  section  there  didn't .seem to be as many entries this year but there were  still some very fine ones, especially among the dahlias and  gladioli. In the dahlias was one  especially unusual one, a cream  based bloom with c o p p e r  streaks through it. It is amazing the unusual effects that are  being attained by floriculturists now, it may not be long  before we'll think nothing  of  END  ASIAN TOUR  Mr. and Mrs. Gronneberg  paid a visit to Gibsons this  week after 15 months of travelling to Bong Kong, Japan.,  Thailand  and    Singapore.  cloud colored flowers, or one?  that grow naturally into the  shape of tea pots, or houses.  This year's seamstresses concerned themselves more with  plain sewing than the fancy  varity, as the largest number  of the exhibits were plain  sweaters, dresser and tea  cloths, although there were  some fine examples of crochet  work, some doilies and a large  table cloth. There were also  some hooked rugs in bright  colors, such as would make  warm any room.  The baking section ran to  the bread and bun variety of  cookery, rather than to the  fancy type. The bread and  buns were all displayed on a  long table and a mouth watering display they made so thai  one was tempted to take a little piece and hope that there  was no one to watch.

Another Fair is ended  While this year's Sunshine Coast Fall Fair may not have  Sad the largest number of entries it was one of the best from a  visual standpoint The entries were of top quality and the surroundings in which they were displayed showed improvement  over previous years.  It would appear that the whole operation of this year's  fair was on a higher plane than usual judging from comments by  various members of the committee in charge. Greater co-operation  was the factor that blossomed during pre-fair operations and bore  fruit when the doors opened so the public could view the results.  Officials in charge of this annual event are to be congratulated for the effort they mustered right through all phases of  organization work. The public can rest assured there is considerable work associated with the setting up of the fair as they view  it without having to go through the frustrations of getting this or  that exhibit in place in time.  Work on next year's fair will start shortly after the New  Year appears and the fair committee would welcome any further  help. Volunteers are worth much more than those impressed into  action so keep an open date for the start of meetings for next  year's fair. It is a rewarding experience. There is the satisfaction  of having done something worthwhile for the community.  There are two items which should be checked so they will  not occur again. Various school children were not pleased with  the fact school entries were judged before closing time for such  entries and those handed in after the judging were not considered.  A second angle which could be cleared concerns entries  not picked up right on time. There are times when people through  no fault of their own are unable to be there on the dot. When thev  do show up they find their entries are not available, even the  award tickets. The tickets at least should be preserved.  Young voices in harmony  To those persons involved in tire life of a community, city  or nation and who try to keep their individual finger on the  pulse of events, comes a time when the broad scene of these events is obliterated.  For the writer that time was Sunday afternoon and the  place the Salvation Army annual music festival at Langdale.  The spirit which proved so moving was that of a choir of young  girls.  The girls sang beautifully, sufficiently so as to transport  not only the writer but many others outside their everyday cares  and into a world of beauty.  All week that forest primeval around the camp had reverberated to sounds of musical instruments, including the. human voice. Some instruments were blown by struggling beginners with sounds equal to their status and othens were played  with a sureness that told of considerable practice.  In one section of camp Lt. Don Cutler of the Salvation  Army brought his young people's choir from a group of individual singers to a group so well integrated, their Sunday afternoon  concert was a really outstanding part of the afternoon festival.  To hear their young voices melded into what could be described as single tone was an experience and to hear them later  sing along with the male members of the camp can be described  as a rare experience. The afternoon was well spent in that camp  [ball.  If the Salvation Army choristers can make one forget the  troubles of the day, it is enough. Nothing more need be said.  Many tongues, many ideas  No wonder our universities are places where argument  <ean start with the drop of a hat. Take a look at the number of religions represented among the large number of students who attend classes. The report of UBC president, Norman Mackenzie,  covering the 1957-58 university year reveals 33 named religions  without counting the the "other religions" section or the religion not given.  Representing the Anglican and United church there were  more than 4,000 students in these denominations, enough to start  a good-sized argument on any subject. In this category could also  fall the more than 1,000 who termed themselves as Protestants  which would supply a force of 5,000 or more capable of stirring  wp considerable controversy ��� just pick your subject.  Buddhist, Confucian, Hindu, Sikh, Moslem and others in  ���$ils range of religious understanding, while small in number  would most likely be quite a stirring element in any discussion,  there being at least 30 students represented.  There were 184 with no religion, agnostics or athiests.  They too could provide a point of view.  So it does appear natural that universities are excellent  debating grounds. To quote Ben Franklin:  Persons of good sense, I have since observed, seldom fall  into disputation, except lawyers, university men, and men of all  sorts that have been bred at Edinburgh. Perhaps if Ben Franklin  aad attended UBC he might have rephrased his remark.  Accident inquiry urged  The British Columbia Automobile association is very concerned with the reported substantial increase in B.C. road  fatalities for June and July,  states Secretary-Manager Stan  CR. Wicks.  "However, we do not necessarily think these deaths can  Be blamed completely on the  new 60-mile an hour zones  posted on some of our highways," Mr. Wicks said.  "Something we must remem-  3&er is that because a highway  might be posted for a 60-mile  an hour zone, it is not incumbent upon the motorist to put  his foot down until he reaches  60 and then travel at that  speed,. He should always drive  acording to road and traffic  conditions and his own ability."  Mr. Wicks stressed that before too much can be said about  these new speeds, a careful inquiry should be undertaken as  to the reasons for the accidents  the drivers involved and any  other pertinent details. "This,  of course, should be done before any change in these new  posted limits need be made."  Editor: The letter by an. old  timer commenting on your July  30 editorial prompts me to  say a word or two, where as  you aptly stated it would pret-  jy well  take a book. ��  The present situation is part  of the evolutionary trend in  society and generally speaking our criticism is tempered  by our status. The boss does  not see the picture the same as  the workman.. By the way the  "wobblies" never ruled ' the  rocst. Their big boast was their  two-bits a month dues, and  as soon as they had a strike on  their hands every organization  this side of Hade.", (which they  always roundly abused) was  canvassed   for   financial   help.  AI:o, the convention which  brought forth the O.B.U. was  organized for an altogether different purpose.  Like "Old Rounder" my  mind goes back to the times  when it needed courage to join  the union. Blackballing wa's  common. I know, having been  told point blank by the head  of a large coal concern that  there was- no work for me at  any of their mines.  Our clergy and our lawyers  have played their part in today's mess. There have been  notable exceptions in their  ranks. Carrying a sanctimonious expression on Sunday at  church is no more guarantee  of being a Christian than pay-  MINUTES OF THE MEETING!.  ~-zA\  Record of perpetual  frustration for UBC  An extensive review of the  history of the University of  British Columbia is contained  in the annual report of "President N.A.M. MacKenzie- for  1958, the year in which UBC  marked its golden jubilee.  The president's report contains numerous tables showing  the country of citizenship, religious affiliations, and geographical distribution of students who attended UBC during the 1957-58 session. There  is also a large section of photographs, many never before  published, showing early views  of the campus.  "UBC's history is in some  ways a record of perpetual  frustration and we have never  had enough staff, buildings,  money and facilities of any  kind," the president said.  "But there is another way of  looking at our history. Tlie  public has aiways responded.  We have always needed more  staff and more buildings because we have always had the  one surplus that is desirable  ��� a greater demand for education than our facilities could  cope with.  "Since we are proud of what  Prepared by the Research Staff of.  ENCYCLOPEDIA   CANADIANA  Did Vancouvr Island have another name?  Yes. At one time this island  on which the capital of British Columbia is situated was  known as Quadra and Vancouver Island to commemorate the  friendship of Capt. George  Vancouver and Spanish navigator and administrator, Juan  Francisco de la Bodega y Quadra. Quadra, born in Peru  about 1744, commanded a ship  that in 1779 voyaged up the  northwest coast of America as  far as the sixtieth degree of latitude, sighting Mount St. Ellas. In 1792 he was sent to Nootka Sound on Vancouver Island  as Spanish envoy to meet,; Captain Vancouver and to arrange  with him for the restoration of  British properties seized by the  Spaniards in 1789. The two  men differed on details of their  diplomatic mission but became  firm friends. An island at the  northern end ofthe Strait of  Georgia, between Vancouver  Island and the mainland, is  still called Quadra Island.  Quadra died in 1794, probably  in San Bias, Mexico.  we offer and since we think it  good for the community to  have so many of our graauates  ar: possible, we must sometimes  rejoice that we have had almost an embarrassment of  students."  The president continues:  "The history cf the University  runs parallel, in many respects  to that of the province. As a  state institution it depends  mainly upon the public treasury for financial support.  "It has prospered with the  prosperity of the province. It  has also felt the pinch of hard  times; even to the point of  threatened extinction. But  throughout its half century of  life, whether in adversity or  prosperity, it has always had  the devoted support of leading  citizens, many of whom served  en its governing bodies."  UBC opened in 1915, with a  registration of 435 and offered  courses leading to a bachelor  of arts degree and the first  three years of the bachelor of  applied science degree.  In 1958, with just under  10,000 students full undergraduate degree work is offered for 15 degrees: in nine faculties, In addition seven degrees are offered in'the faculty  of graduate studies and Ph.D.  work in 24 separate fields of  study.  "My very brief history can  have no tidy conclusion," the  president says. "Neat summaries of the history of an institution can be made only -when  it is static ��� or dead. The University of British Columbia is  very much alive and I hope it  will continue to develop as it  has done in the past."  Reviewing the development  fund of 1957 and 1958 the president terms the appeal an "over  whelming success." The fund  currently stands at more than  $9 million and it is expected  that within the next year the  University will be able to more  than meet the provincial government's offer to match all  contributions up to $10 million.  Turning to the UBC development plan the president points  out that the present campus  population is about equal to  the population of Kamloops  and by 1961 the enrolment  will be the equivalent of the  population of Nanaimo.  The development plan envisages a central teaching campus of 215 acres free of vehicular traffic with parking lots  on the periphery of the campus. The land to the south of  the present campus will be  used in due course for residences, research laboratories,  playing fields, botanical gardens, agriculture and forestry.  ing exorbitant, initiation fees  and' heavy monthly dues and  a union card in one's pocket  makes a union man. The odd  clergyman helped the workers  in their struggle to organize.  Notable examples being the  ones who helped build the  British Labor party. The odd  lawyer too helped the workern  in the lower brackets, but generally they were more noted  for drafting legislation that  was so confusing that their  kind was kept in constant employment in the courts fighting legal interpretations of  acts of parliament.  One of our big troubles today is the fact that the workers, generally 30 and under,  have had too much handed  them without much struggle  for it. This may or may not be  largely the cause for indifference and lack of attendance at  their union meetings, which in  turn has largely let rank and  file control slip from their  hands.  Just as: this has taken years  to come about, so it will take  considerable time, patience and  energy to alter. Becks and Hof-  fas would not be possible  where union men attended to  their business.  To avoid taking too much  space, may I say this to the  workers of today: Keep in  mind you cannot take out any  more from the pot than what  is first placed in there. The  boss gets his draw and the  worker gets a share, then seemingly the soup has to be thin-  nedo down to. go around the  old age pensioners. In a nutshell, regardless of who causes  the raises in prices, each time  foodstuffs, etc., goes up the  pensioner suffers a  reduction.  Think another thing over,  voting for your boss or his  henchmen. The promising politician like "Dief the Chief"  should be fresh enough in  your mind to realize how muc  reliance can be placed upon  him. And those of us who fall  for bond-burning Bennett's  wiles might sooner or later  see the light.

But instead we saw the results pf the  disgusting habits* of a very  poor class of human beings.  While walking around on the  dock we happened to pass -what  used to be Mr. Reichelt's little  Black Ball ticket office. Of all  the disgusting sights I have  seen this was the worts yet.  There are no toilet facilities  on the wharf so this office is  being used as a public privy.  Please could something be done  about this before some bad  disease starts from this filthy  place.  J.W. Edwards,  *���� .!�� ��X*  ����������� 'C ��P  Editor: I thought it was time  someone gave their opinion on  the lack of parental interest in  their sons' Little League and  Babe Ruth ball teams. It seems  that these people who are always crying "What is there for  our children to do?" should do  something about this,.  The parents are not asked  for any money or help in organizing, so I feel the least  they could do is come to the  games and give some moral  support. Is this too much to  ask?  I am tb,? coach of the Sechelt  Babe Ruth team and in most  instances can not even get an  offer from the parents to provide transportation to the  games and have yet to see  more than three of the children's parents at any one ball  Life's Darkest Moment  game. A hearty thanks to those  who do. There are always the  old standbys. We find that the  lack of interest leaves us with  no alternative but to let the  collection go as it is not worth  our while to try and collect  from a handful of people,  which, needless to say, has left  the treasury in rather poor  shape.  So to those parents who pretend to be so interested in their  children and keeping them off  the streets: How about laying  down your fishing rods, etc.,  t.'.ext season and coming to the  game with your sons, as it  gives him a terrific thrill to  make a good play and have his  family there to see it and cheer  for him. I hope this little article strikes home to you, or  it will be 1, 2, 3, and your son  will be out.  Ray Nestman.  *    *    **  Editor: At the quarterly  meeting of the B.C. Conserva-  tiv executive at Nelson in July  I advocated establishment of  industrial courts or labor tribunals to protect the general  public from the results of industrial disputes between management and and unions. As  the Conservative candidate for  Oak Bay in the coming provincial election I intend to ask  the general meeting of the B,.C.  Conservative association to  adopt a resolution calling for  favorable legislative action on  such courts.  This is a serious matter for  the membership of our party to  decide, for on their decision  may well depend a good measure of our provincial prosperity. How do the mass of British  Columbians feel about this  problem? Only by making  known their wishes can their  opinions be effective and only  through you, Mr. Editor, can  they be reached.  The proposals which I shall  make at our meeting at Har-  ison Hot Springs in late October will be substantially the  same as those listed below:  1. A separate industrial judiciary to be established to preside over disputes concerning  wages and working conditions.  2. The panel of judges shall  consist of at least three members and may be increased if  necessary.  3. The number of presiding  judges for a specific case shall  be determined by the attorney-  general.  4. Union management disputes will come under the  jurisdiction of this court at the  present conciliation board  stage of negotiations and will  replace boards of conciliation.  5. The industrial court shall  hear all cases arising from actions instituted under the various labor acts of B.C. a��d hand  down rulings and judgements.  6. The opinions of the court  on union-managemet disputes  concerning wages and working  conditions1 shall not be binding  on the parties concerned.  7. The decisions of the court  on civil cases arising from actions instituted under the various* labor acts shall be normal  proceedings and judgements  and penalties, if any, will be  awarded by this court. Such  decisions shall be subject to  appeal in the normal courts of  law.  Although this intended addition to our provincial statutes  has received support from union members (including a former union official and a union  organizer), it would be folly to  assume that it will not meet  with concerted heavily financed opposition.

Canadians best force in  UNEF brothers report  Best soldiers in the United  Nations force in the Egyptian  area are the Canadians, bar  none. They always do their job,  writes Ron Johnston who along  with his twin brother Roger  are serving with the Canadian  forces there. In letters written  to their parents, Magistrate  and Mrs. Andrew Johnston of  Sechelt, both young men have  expressed the feeling that the  Canadians were the most efficient force in that particular  area.  After five months in the  field Ronald reports he is still  as enthusiastic as he was when  he first landed with the signals  branch in 'which he does his  work. He reports the job as  being very routine and the  greatest worry is boredom after work hours. However, they  manage, to make visits to other  canteens and meet men from  other countries, particularly  some Norwegians with whom  they  are quite friendly.  Civilian friends are nodding  acquaintances' as they are generally on the lookout for money. Ronald found civilian incomes quite low and he marvelled the civilians were able  to live (with so few of our essentials. One meets beggars  and poverty, as a natural occur ance and not the exception.  A celebration of the retreat  two years previously of the Israeli troops was staged by  Egyptians, which resulted in  the UNEF troops being confined to barracks to avoid incidents. The thousands that paraded gave the Canadians a further insight into the Middle  East and its people. They are  a family people, Ronald reports, ambitious, poor but  proud. Ronald adds that for  theer beauty the Canadians  have not seen girls like those  of the Egyptians, anywhere.  Unfortunately, he adds, the  troops are not allowed to talk  or mix with them.  In   order   to   keep  in   trim  shape the boys report having  to partake in a three mile jog  daily which along with cutting  cut smoking has improved  wind and physical condition  generally. The three-mile stint  which at one time was a labor  has now become a routine event daily. Roger writes that he  may enter the three-mile or  5,000 metre run for' the Canadians during the UNEF Olympics.  At the end of March the desert shows signs of bloom with  the fruit groves a blaze of color and Roger reports he has  difficulty getting used to the  orange, lemon, olive, date and  fig but as Roger explained,  spring comes flashily in Egypt.  It being the period of the  Moslem Ramadan, their Lent  or holy month, from a nearby  tall minaret a high priest sends  out the call to prayer which  helps break the monotony for  a time.  Reporting later on the results of the Olympiad, Roger  speaks highly of the participants from India who topped  all others in track events. He  managed to make a few points  for Canada in the one mile and  three mile events.  . He did not know India's  champion miler was going to  run but it apparently did not  worry him too much because  he ran the mile and as he wrote  it made no difference because  the winner from India was never pushed either in the mile or  three-mile  event.  Both boys having been posted for some time at different  stations in the area at last plan  to get together to discuss their  coming leave to England and  Norway. They plan to visit  Edinburgh, Denmark and Oslo.  Before they got together  Roger was fortunate to be included in a tour of Jerusalem  and many of the holy places  his brother had visited earlier.  He took many interesting pictures and obtained much literature on the points of interest the party explored.

Ont  The largest and fastest airliners in Canada are flying across  the nation between here and  Montreal without ever turning  a propeller, while their pilots  are at home in bed.  The pilotless Bristol Britannia flights are all part of a million dollar game 'of make-be<  lieve recently play ad by Canadian Pacific Airline's flight  crews. It's a grown-up game, a  serious version of the childhood  pastime, "let's pretend." It consists of a series of hypothetical  flights over the 2,450-mile airway linking Vancouver, Winnipeg,  Toronto and Montreal.  These daily "dream" flights  are an important feature of the  intensive aircraft and route familiarization program in preparation for the inauguration of  Britannia jet-prop airliners on  the Airline's new route.  This program is designed to  supplement the practical experience gained in a sequence of  actual training flights. CPA  pilots will have logged twice the  Weddings  CRESSWELL���HEWITT  St. Peter's Anglican Church,  Naramata, B.C., was the scene  of the wedding of (Anna) Hannah Belle Hewitt and John  George Cresswell on Saturday,  Aug. 8, 1959. Rev. W. S. Beames  officiated.  The bride is the daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Hewitt of  Naramata, and the groom son of  .Mr. and Mrs. George Cresswell  of  Granthams Landing.  The bride wore a gown of  white satin brocade with ballerina length skirt and a seed;  pearl and sequin crown with a^.  elbow length veil. She carried  ,a falls of rosy-pink gladioli with  stephanotis.  Maid of honor was Miss  Dorothy Cresswell, sister of the  groom and bridesmaid was Miss  Marlene Johnson, cousin of the  bride.Verne Eskildsen was best  man and Richard Kendall ushered.  A reception was held at the  garden of Mr. and Mrs. C  Burtch, where James Corlett  proposed the bridal toast to his  ^���i��ce. After their honeymoon  Mr. and Mrs. Cresswell will reside in Hixon, B.C.  legally-required flying hours  over the route prior to the inaugural.  The captains prefer the real  thing to the hypothetical "paper  flights", but they value the opportunity of thus gaining many  hours of extra experience. Only  three to four hours of chart  time is logged on a seven hour,  35 minute imaginary flight, but  it's a welcome change to go  home to bed while the airplane  flies itself to Montreal.  A typical "ground training"  flight is scheduled for departure  from Vancouver at 9 a.m. Several hours beforehand, the  weatherman has started assembling the jig-saw of continental  weather flashes into an up-to-  date and accurate picture of  wind, cloud and visibility conditions along the route. Just as  if preparing for actual take-off  the flight crew report for briefing, talk with weatherman and  dispatcher, and develop a complete flight plan.  A typical eastbound "paper  operation" is mapped to span  the 2,450 miles from Vancouver  to Montreal in three leaps,, with,  Regina, Lakehead or Ottawa as  alternate airports. Even with  partially full tanks and: unfavorable winds, however, the air-  rraft could vault, the continent  in a single bound.  Numerous    other    calculations  are necessary to make the flight  as realistic as possible. The im  a<*"r**3r*"\  aircraft will be loaded .  with 35,000 pounds of fuel. The J  average  ground   speed   (with   a ;  40 mile-an-hcur tail wind) is calculated   at   400 miles per hour. i;  Finally all  plans are ready for  take-off right down to such precise details as the altimeter settings and the poundage of filet  mignons and roast turkey to bi  loaded    into    the   gallery.   Now  comes  the first departure from  ������"���-���lity. The cew goes home U>  bed, allowing the mythical flight  to pursue  its   imaginary course  alone.  yy^pjuww^v^jrjM^4W'>^^M"|H.w��rji��M''M^M^'i'^'^yyvM  "I  Some 24 hours later the paper  flight project comes to life again,  to yield pertinent answers to  questions concerning the performance of the Britannia in  the light of such variables as  distance, speed, wind and  weather.  The experience so Tar in this  chart-flying program has borne  out the conviction that Britannia flights on the Canadian Empress Route will offer the fastest air service in Canada between     Vancouver,     Winnipeg,  Toronto and Montreal. On oc-  caions, the aircraft wil ride the  jet-paced upper air currents to  attain speeds up to 510 miles  per hour.

Thistle control possible  Some of the new herbicides  such as Amino Triazole (ATA.)  show promise for the control of  Canada thistle, one of the most  persistent weeds in the coastal  area  of B.C.  Control of thistles in perennial row crops such as small  fruits is expensive so there is  a great need for an effective  means of eradicating an infestation in fields to be planted to  such crops.  One of the most effective  chemicals used over the past  two years in tests at Saanichton  Experimental Farm, is amino  triazole.  An initial spraying of ATA applied to thistles in the bud stage  'with a thorough cultivation by  a duckfoot cultivator three weeks  later,  and  followed  by another  spraying in September to check  re-ground, has resulted in an  average reduction of 93 percent.  ATA was applied at 2 pounds  of active ingredient per acre for  each application. Even more effective results were obtained in  1958 when the rate at the bud  stage treatment was doubled.  A systematic cultivation program has also proved effective,  However, this requires an initial  cultivation in the bud stage and  ,a minimum of four additional  cultivations with a duckfoot cultivator at three-week intervals.  In a wet summer this program is  difficult to maintain and may  give  disappointing results.  The chemical spray method,  .on the other hand, has the advantage of being less dependent  upon favorable weather for good  results.  The death of Otto Giersh  broke another link between  the life of yesterday on West  Howe Sound and of today. Otto  large and genial, for many  years led a double life. He own  ed a small farm back of Hopkins Landing, which he had  with much labor brought into  a high state of cultivation. His  other love was the sea, and he  also owned a large work-boat  called the "E.A.G.," which,  like everything under his  house-flag, was always trim  and well-fbund. The initials  were his wife's, but Otto's boat  was usually called the EEG and  Otto used her in his manifold  duties as wharf and float commandant for the Dominion  government.  In those days, before television and radio in West Howe  Sound, the big break of the  day at the various landings was  the trip to the wharf, to see  what and whom the Union  steamer had brought up from  town, and the incoming "city  slickers" were the chief subjects of speculation and comment. This game naturally  worked in reverse, for, when  the water had been turned on  and the fires lit, these city folk  had a lot of fun in reviewing  the panorama unfolded by the  natives at the various wharves.  Sometimes, the visitors  would see Otto, in charge of  several workmen, directing repairs on the wharf, and he  seemed always to wear an enigmatic smile. Wharf and float  repairs in that era had a political significance, and a review  of Otto's crew afforded an educated guess at the political  faith of his rank and file.  Otto was also custodian of  the various floats, and on the  approach of winter he and his  EAG towed them away to our  island Avalon, "where never  wind blows loudly." The long  rainy weeks passed and the  sun shone again, and one day  the EAG and Otto reappeared  with our float. A harbinger  of spring, this combination was  A. M. FRASER, formerly of  Winnipeg, who has been named  to the new post of assistant  general manager of the C.P.R.'s  Pacific region with headquarters  at  Vancouver.

Outstanding event of the afternoon was the singing of the  group of girls making up the  special choir under direction  of Lt. Don Cutler. Their singing was superb and all too  short but as the other participants had to have time to play  it was necessary to keep to the-  program.  The bands were under general direction of the director  of mu:ic, Capt. Percy Merritt  from Toronto and he conducted the advanced band in various numbers. The B band played under direction of Capt. W.  Hcstig and the C band under  Lt. H. Dumerton. This band  played Peace be Still and revealed a few tempestuous passages with calm prevailing toward the end.  There were various novelties on the program including  instrumental and vocal round-.  The vocal section performed  splendidly but some of the instrumental sections had what  was described as some rough  corners in the round.  Brig.

To Peninsula  My impressions of Gibsons  By Jun Nakajima      A visitor from Japan  Tne thing that impressed me the most was the kindness shown me by the people of Gibsons.  I was very struck by the beautiful mountains, and the  huge trees. In my country I do not see them as I live in the  city of Yokohama, so I envy the people here, being able to  see them all day and all night.  At the party which was given me in the home of my  host the people were very kind to me, which amazed me, as  I was a foreigner.. I was very much afraid at first of being  in a Canadian home, I feared I would not be understood or  accepted, but by mixing with the people of Gibsons and  meeting so many people my own age, I found I could soon  relax.  Although I would like to live inGibsons amongst' the  beautiful mountains I know I must go back to Japan, so I say  good-bye to Gibsons and hope some day I may return to the  land of kind people and beautiful mountains.  41st and Granville, Vancouver  An expense paid two-day trip to Vancouver including raturn fare, hotel accommodation and  meals.
