This  ���was announced at Tuesday  night's meeting of the July 1  celebration committee in> Legion hall.  Reason for moving ahead was  to allow a longer afternoon  for other events. It was found  tide conditions would not be  suitable for swimming and diving events at the. Municipal  dock so time had to be found  to hold them when the tide was  suitable.  The parade will start congre  gating in vicinity of Elphinstone High School at 11 a.m.  and judging of floats will follow. The parade will then move  off headed by the 103rd Squadron RCAF Cadet band of 34  and girls drill team of 40.  At 1 o'clock opening ceremonies will take place on the  Kinsmen Park grounds where  the Queen will be named and  crowned and prizes awarded  float winners.  At 1:30 Kinsmen officials  will run off the sports events  for the children. This will be  followed by an exhibition oil  precision drill by the visiting  drill team from North Vancouver.

Fifteen hundred  . rounds were fired during the  afternoon with more tha 100  persons either shooting or  watching. The range was decked out in its Sunday best with  brightly clored flags and soft  music soothed the nerves of  Nimrods intent on shattering  clay discs.  The opening was a success,  thanks to a good local turnout and Gun Club members  from Port Mellon and Sechelt  who were on hand gave a fine  demonstration of their shooting ability. Special thanks go  to Richard Stenner who did an  excellent job of setting pigeons  Winners of some events of  the day were: Snipe shoot, Ted  Osborne; miss and out, B.

The Seabird was in the company of the gillnetter Mavis  with Keith Sayer and Jack Harwood aboard, and was slightly  behind the Mavis.  Tlie two men looked back  and noticed that the boat appeared to be in difficif-ty, so  they turned back and took Mr.  Williamson off and put a line  aboard and towed the boat to  the vicinity of the wharf at  Davis Bay, and beached her  there. The top of the cabin only  was above water. Tlie extent  cf the damage is not yet known  see the annual big event in  Gibsons.  Discussing proceeds which,  will naturally arise from the  sale of ballots for queens and  programs, Ike Mason, chairman  of the committee announced  that it was the intention of the  committee to see that all money  collected for the celebration  went back to the public in  some form or another.

Particular credit should go  to jLes Hempsall for his untiring  efforts as the guiding spirit oi  the project and to Art Greg-  gain who ably seconded him.

Water problem looms  Water plays a foremost part in the life of any community  atad* the entire Sunshine Coast will have to face the problem of  an ample water supply before many years fly by. It may be done  jjuecemeal or on a big scale. No matter how it is done the cooperation of every community will be involved.  * *  In the area from Port Mellon to beyond Sechelt there are  two or three possible watersheds. There is one now serving Port  Mellon, and there are possibles between there and Sechelt water  supply. Beyond that area it would appear that another watershed  would have to be considered owing to topographical difficulties.  It is not possible for any editorial at this time to encom-  ipass specific ideas as to what water supplies should be utilized  &ut this situation will have to be faced. Recently at a meeting of  ���Gibsons Village Commission, Chairman A.E. Ritchey declared  Ithe Village of Gibsons was prepared to slit down and talk with  any of the surrounding communities, the problem of a water  ���supply.  The entire area is growing at a cumulative rate with more  people settling on the Sunshine Coast each year. Port Mellon,  Gibsons and Sechelt have water supplies sufficient for present  aeeds. Expansion at Port Mellon would be taken care of by Canadian Forest Products, on its own or jointly with some other  Rjody requiring water. There are smaller water supplies between  Fort Mellon and Gibsons. These will before long have to be the  subject of discussion if population needs require expansion.  Gibsons and Sechelt report ample supplies for present  and immediate future needs providing those needs are not too  great. However the time will come when serious discussion will  &ave to be organized.  Such discussions may result in the changing of municipal  i&oundaries in order to make any scheme economica-lly- feasible.  This, means the day will come when both Sechelt and Gibsons  will have to consider enlarging the area they will serve not only  with water but other services. Each municipal area has its incongruous situations and in Gibsons there is the situation where one  side, oi Sechelt highwaiy is within the village water system and  She other side is not. Natural expansion will force remedies to  aaich situations.  Every growing community has a water problem at some  flime or other and the Sunshine Coast is no exception and some  thinking should be started now.  Ship agent in Manila plans to retire at northern B.C. lake  The Barry more era  Th death of Ethel Bairrymore closes an era of a great family in the theatre. To have seen any of the Barrymores, remembering Lionel and John, both departed from this life, was an  occasion.  The Barrymores reigned supreme for years. It seemed  ���Shelr theatrical life was without end but age eventually caught  up with them. Lionel Barrymore in his older days was particular-  $yf lovable for the characters he created. But to select Lionel  above Ethel or John would not be fair because all three were  ���outstanding in their roles.  The days when an actor or actress could hold the audience  in his or her hands by the power of voice and dramatic acting  Ihave faded considerably. We always have our Shakespearian actors with us but we do not always have someone who can portray a modern role with the completeness the Barrymores could.  Few actresses or actors today can so move a listener that  he or she has forgotten time. Maybe those days will return but in  Hie meantime one can dwell in the memories of three greats of  Ihe theatre when it was a power in the land.

This is the second of  the series.)  A visit to the. Phillipines is  an education for tourists. In  comparison with cities in Japan  and China, Manila ��� with its  ancient Spanish architecture  and modern air-conditioned  structures ��� is making a*remarkable comeback since the  battering it took during the  last war.  There are still some marks  of war and a former ace with  the Royal Norwegian Air Force  and the RAF in the last war ���  Eric Westly ��� showed me:the  last remaining sunken freighter in Manila harbour, visible  at low tide. All the others ���  it's estimated more than 100  were sunk in air raids ��� have  been removed.  Westly is an official of Theo  H. Davies Company, steamship  agents in Manila. His wife,  Marcia, isj a sister of Stuart  Keate, publisher of the Victoria  Times. :"r  Another man we met in Ma  nila was H.C.D. (Johnny) Johnston, manager of Smith, Bell  and Company, agents for the  Orient and Pacific Lines.  Johnston is retiring next  year after 23 years in Manila  nnd pla-'ns* to make his home at  Shawnigan Lake in British  Columbia "where I can fish  and hunt and relax."  The Himilaya, carrying more  than 600 pessengers, was the  first of the O & P fleet to call  at Manila under the company's  new service linking America  with the Orient.  Manila is similar in many  ways to cities in Canada and  the United States. Autos travel on the right side of the  street ������ as against left-hand  driving  in  Japan   and   China.

Just a bunch of ordinary  working blokes who consider  that devoting one night a week  to training, and risking their  life and limb at fires are not  too much to do for their community.

Owing to members having  left the district the brigade requires several new members  and anyone who desires to be a  fire fighter should apply to  T.H. Parish, the fire chief.  Thanks to the generosity of  the Sechelt Kinsmen Club the  fire brigade has a completely  equipped ambulance which is  on call to serve the Peninsula.

Many priceless  oils also adorn the walls of  the palace rooms.  Tiiere are 87 dialects in the  Phillipines with 53 provinces  and 29 cities.

Coast News, June 25, 1959.    3  Judges for the diving competitions at the Municipal dock  during the July 1 celebration  have been announced by the  committee in charge of these  events. They are Mrs. Norman  Geoghegan and Mr. L. Wray.  This year's events will have  a prize value totalling $67.50  in order to attract some classier  competitors.!. For instance in  the log-rolling competition  t!>-*re will be a first prize of  $15, a second of $10 and a third  of $5.

Cancel all newspaper deliveries; old newspapers on the doorstep are a certain indication of  on  going  away  an empty house.  Inform your local police that  you will be away so that police  car check your home' periodically.'  Ask a friend or neighbor th  visit the house occasionally l��  see that all is in order.  Valuable jewelry and silverware should be left with a bank  for safekeeping.  Do not leave lights burning;  during daylight hours they indicate an empty house.

The Board of School Trustees,  School District No. 46 (Sechelt)  Box 19, Gibsons, B.C.  RCMP Constable John Clark  is belived to be the only man  in Canadian history to be shot  through the heart and live to  tell about it.  Consable Clark, still in Royal Columbian Hospital, New  Westminster, expects to be out  of hospital in three weeks, provided no complications arise  from the skilful heart surgery  which has kept him alive.  John Clark owes his life to  many  people.  In  the first instance, to the brave Indian fisherman,   John   Robertson,   who  saw    the    wounded   constable  stagger to  his car. Robertson,  who was only a novice driver  with  no   license,   managed   to  get    into    the   car    with    the  wounded constable, put out  a  call for help on the car's radio,  and drive at a speed of 80 miles  an   hour from   the  Coquitlam  Reserve to the hospital. It was  a nightmare  drive as the  car  sped through Fraser Mills, over  the Patullo Bridge, to the hospital. Clark had lost a considerable   amount  of   blood   and  there   was   no   doubt   in   the  minds of the doctors   that he  would have died before an ambulance   could   have    reached  him.  So, first of  all,  his  life  was saved by John Robertson  Then eight doctors took over.  The bullet had cut through one  side of the left ventricle which  pumps blood   from the   heart  into  the   arteries,   and   lodged  under his left arm. One of the  doctors concerned said   "eight  of us had a hand in the job of  repairing this damage. It would  have been useless if he hadn't  been  in perfect  physical   condition, and young."  It would have been useless,  too, if the hospital had not been  supplied with plenty of fresh  O positive blood for the transfusions needed by John Clark.  Tne Red Cross Free Blood  Transfusion Service was able  to supply, this blood because  166 people responded to an  emergency radio appeal to attend a specially opened clinic  on Sunday morning, May 31,  a few hours after the shooting.  ty of the Cumming gardens and  lawns while also conributing  to the wonderful work done  by the order in the field of  Cancer research and Cancer  dressings.

They tore it  out and threw it into the bush.  The flood of water mired the  "cat" in the mud and they; had  to puil it out, so the old gent  had to  climb up  and down "a  20 foot bank to the Greek for  his water until he was able to  pay for a new water installation,  as the party responsible  never made any attempt to re-'  medy the damage.  The pensioner had to pay for  this out of his $55 pension and,  as everyone knows, he could ill  afford that. He is going on 86  years of age and this is the  kind of abuse that should be  given a little publicity.  This happened at Roberts  Greek and has been taken up  with the Provincial Water  Board in Victoria but so far  nothing has been done about  it. You know that large bodies  mcv*e  slowly;,  as they say.  I had an idea that this bit of  information might serve some  purpose.  F.E.S.

School Trustees in salary negotiations with  teachers this year will be "stabilization."  A.M. Harvey of Ocean Falls,  chairman of the provincial salary co_nmittee of the B.C.  School Trustees Association, announced the objective following a series of meetings of his  committee and conferences  with representatives of the 10  geographical branches of the  Association.  "The most pressing need in  . the province-wide salary picture right now is to achieve balance, to bring salaries in all  districts into a closer pattern  ���so there will be less highs and  lows in the various scales," he  said.  "This must not be interpreted as a restrictive policy," Mr.  Harvey said, "but rather one  of adjustment, striving to correct some of the imbalances  that have developed in previous years."  School Boards throughout  the province will be advised  to conduct all negotiations with  teachers strictly in line with  procedures set forth in the Public Schools Act.  "There a're numerous aspects  of this procedure that we do  not like; some that we think  Ere positively wrong, but they  are the present legal requirements of the act and until suitable amendments are brought  forward we will follow exactly  the lines laid down by the legislature," Mr. Harvey said.  On the long term ba<_is the  BCSTA Provincial Salary Committee  intends to work in the  direction set out by the Association in its brief to the Chant  Royal   Commission,  he   stated.  This  is  a provl-icial   salary  scale with zonal differentials to  achieve proper balance between  areas, tied in with adequate re  ward  for   classroom   performance. This has long been an objective  of trustees  throughout  B.C.,   as   evidenced  in resolutions at successive conventions  through recent years, Mr. Harvey stated.  Second recHal  Pupils of Mrs. M. Brooke  Held their second recital at the  home of Mr. and Mrs. T. Nygard June 13. Parents and  friends enjoyed the program  and it was interesting to note  the progress made in the space  of a year. A senior pupil, Ber.  _;ice Morgan played several  classical numbers.'  Pupils contributing to the  program were, piano: JoAnne  Potts, Mary Anne Schutz, Judy  Nygard, Carson Graves, Beverly Ness, Jimmy Nygard, and  Douglas Doyle; piano accordion, Tove Hansen and Joan  Brooks; violin, Leonard Graves.  Douglas Doyle was awarded  hi si certificate for passing with  honors, having completed  grades one and two in one year  He presented Mrs. Brooke with  a bouquet of flowers on behalf  of the pupils.  IMrs. Brooke thanked the pupils for the way in which they  had progressed in fee year and  hoped to hear the results of the  recent exams soon. She thanked the Nygards for the use oi*  their home. Refrehments were  served by Mrs. Nygard assisted  by the pupils.  Police Court  Magistrate Andrew Johnston  found William James Money,  Sechelt; John Barker, Gibsons;  Charles Bryson, Lulu Island;  and George Prince of Vancouver guilty cf speeding on the  Sunshine Coast Highway and  fined them $25 each.  George Vidal Kearley of  Fender Harbour was fined $50  for consuming beer on the high  way near Pender Harbour.  David Scouler of Pender  Harbour was fined $20 for being a minor found in possession of beer.  William A Smith and Gerald  Lewis of* Vancouver were fined $10 each for fishing without  angler's licenses.  Harpsichord played on P  An unusual addition to the  musical instruments of the district made its appearance on  June 10 when a harpsichord arrived at the home of Mrs. Kendall, Sechelt Highway.  The instrument, in the possession of Mrs. Kendall's youngest  son, Arthur, a former graduate  of Howe Sound High School at  Gibsons, was custom made at  'Passau, Bavaria, by Sperrhake,  iwho spent a year on it.  The Kendall harpsichord has  a two-manual keyboard and  three sets of strings, with stops'  that permit the playing' of a  single set, or���of any combination of sets of strings.  Both Arthur, who  at  present  on reninsusa  lives at Moose Jaw, and his  brother Noble, of Merritt, made  special trips to set up and test  the new instrument.  Throughout the short time  they could stay, both were kept  busy playing for friends, neighbors, and music students who  Soon learned of the instrument's  presence, and most of whom had  never before heard a "Live" harpsichord.
