Parliament Blag.,  Victoriat H. -C*  *d*****uafc^^  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published in Gibsons, B.C. Volume 11, Number 49, December 17, 1959.  A Complete Line  of Men's Clothing  Marine Men's Wear  Ltd.  Phone 2 ��� Gibsons,  B.C.  # -I-      -i-tv--���  j-fy  (By Peier Trappitt)  Skipper and crew of the tug  Strady V, and members of  Garden Bay Volunteer Fire  Brigade shared honors in a  courageous effort to save a  blazing vessel from destruction on Wednesday last week.  At about 8:30 a.m. vessels  in the vicinity of Pender Harbour were alerted by radiotelephone by a distress call  from the 90-foot tug Viking  Chief with the news that fire  had broken out aboard, at a  point some distance off Francis Point, south-west of Pender  Harbour.  Shortly after the first call,  the tug Elsie arrived and;took  off the crew of the: Viking  Chief. The Elsie was followed  by the Strady V, which immediately laid alongside the burning vessel. Without hesitation,  the crew of the Strady V boarded the Viking Chief to fight  the flames.  Meantime, the alarm had  reached members of the Pender Harbour Brigade. Within  ten minutes the brigade had asr  sembled, and embarked on Vic  Gooldrup's gillnetter. Arrived  at the scene, Vic laid his boat  alongside the Chief, where the  brigade joined forces with the  men of the Strady in battling  the flames.  Tw other vessels of the Viking fleet which had received  the call, the Viking Queen and '  the Viking Scout; lay some distance off. ������  Combined efforts of the two  crews resulted in some degree  of control, when it was decided  to remove the stricken vessel  to a spot where there would  be no danger of navigational  hazard in the event that the  fire again got but of hand.  She was taken in 4dw by the  Viking Queen, and beached oh  thg shore of Garden Peninsula,  irT Pender Harbouiv H��^f "e*  forts were continued to extinguish the fire, the brigade and  the crew of the Strady being  joined later in the morning by  a, crew from the local Forest  Hanger -station.  From early morning until  6.30 in the evening, the volunteers battled to 'save* the vessel, but, deep down, along the  length of the bilge, the flames  had taken too firm a hold. It  was this fact which had prevented earlier efforts to reach  and open the sea-cocks to sink  the vessel.  The fire eventually reached  the diesel fuel tanks, containing some 5,000 gallons of oil.  This was signalized by a roar  of flames shooting 20 or 30  feet into the air. The whole  area from Garden Bay to Madeira Park was illuminated by  the intense glare of the flames,  which roared and crackled  throughout the night, until  dawn disclosed a charred and  smoking skeleton, its gaunt  and blackened ribs bearing  mute testimony to a gallant effort which failed.  Polio drive  on Jan. 31  Tommy Parker will head  the Kinsmen sponsored Mothers' March for the Gibsons  area next January, President  Eric Prittie of the Kinsmen  Club of Gibsons announces.  Working with the campaign  chairman will be all members  of the Kinsmen Club as well  as scores of Marching Mothers.  Provincial objective of this  year's Mothers' March is $325,-  000. This amount is necessary  to continue the fight against  polio and to provide vital rehabilitation services for disabled persons in B. C. Part of  the proceeds will be used for  equipment in the polio vaccine  clinics to be held throughout  B, C. by Kinsmen Clubs early  in 1960.  As a result of last year's  campaign, $282,000 as spent in  education for the disabled, research and prevention, and  treatment services. Nearly  1,000 disabled persons, ineligible for assistance elsewhere,  received medical and hospital  care.  Mothers' March on Jan. 31  will climax a month of activities by the Kinsmen Club as  part of the overall campaign.  The objective for this area has  been set at $1500 which is 25  percent above the returns last  year. Kinsmen urge the cooperation of all residents in  meeting this objective.

Mrs. E'-tta Fisher brought a  small pearl which she found  in an oyster which came from  an area she reports as being  productive of pearl oysters.

Turkey shoot  The final activity of the Sechelt Peninsula Rod and Gun  Club "for 1959 was a? turkey  shoot on the club grounds at  Wilson Creek on Sunday.

This brief  was then forwarded   to   the   minister   of  health   with the  request that  members  of the  group be allowed  to  discuss its  contents  with the officials in Victoria.  The brief, contained approximately 50 pages of subjective  matter, graphs and charts and  included   a  map .which  illustrated the population distribution between "Port Mellon and  Pender   Harbour.    It   showed  the estimated population of the  above   area   as   slightly   over  9,000, an increase of 75% over  the last 10 years. In addition,  the brief showed that the existing hospital facilities   were  inadequate to serve the population of the area.  The   final   recommendation ���  was'that planning begin imme  diately on a new 50-bed hospital, centrally located to  serve  the  entire area between Port  Mellon and Pender Harbour.  The Deputy Minister of  Health, in acknowledging receipt of the brief, complimenl-  ed the local committee on the  caliber of the presentation.* In  discussions with the administrator of St. Mary's Hospital  he noted that it was the Best  brief they had received.

Many hear  Bishop Gower  St. Bartholomew's Anglican  Church was host church for  the Anglican parish of the Sechelt Peninsula When 32 candidates said their vows at a  confirmation service at which  219  parishone'rs attended.  Rt. Rev. G. P. Gower, Bishop  of the Diocese of New Westminster received the vows and  confirmed the candidates. Rev.  C. R. Harbord was chaplain  for the bishop, and the candidates were presented .by the  vicar. After the completion of  the Confirmation service the  candidates received certificates  and a personal 'Prayer Book  from the bishop.  The bishop in his address  spoke not only to the candidates but to all who have taken the confirmation vows, by  i.ating we should remember  always the promises made on  the day we are confirmed. He  stressed the need of individuals to take an active, true and  real participation in the worship, of our Creator in corporate communion and fellowship  with one another.  Tlie service .was followed  by a reception in the Parish  kail where the new parishoners  were received into the fellowship cf the Church's family in  the form of a luncheon.

Railways have point  It is only by reading the press from almost any other city  ��han Vancouver, one discovers there is a freight rates hearing underway in Ottawa and that the hearing is considering a delicate  ipoint.  It appears the railways do not want a subsidy to cover the  cost between Crow:s Nest Pass rates on grain shipments and the  actual cost of transporting the said grain.  Submissions by both railways show they received $64 millions for grain shipments which cost the railways $129 millions  fe> handle. It was not their intention to seek a subsidy covering'  'Hie difference for several reasons, chief of which is they regard  such as a subsidy to agriculture.  The railways prefer to take the view that the impact of such  a subsidy should not fall on the railways but where it belongs,  aa agriculture. Grain now moving from Regina to thq Lakehead  is charged 20 cents a hundred pounds, on a tariff set in 1899���  with comparative rates to other points including Vancouver.  The railways point to government payments to shippers of coal,  ���poultry and livestock and can see no reason why such subsidies  ���could not affect grain at the shipper level and not that of the  railways.  Chairman of this hearing is M.A. Macphersoh, Q.C. of Re-  gine who has wide experience in freight rate hearings,. It is intended that sessions1 will be held in the west including Vancouver., Prairie provinces argue the entire freight rate structure is  involved and the whole rates problem should be explored thoroughly. Perhaps they are right but 1899 rates are definitely out.  mt date.  FOR PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHY  Phone T. E. BOOKER ��� Gibsons 312F  Rising costs a liability!  A big improvement  In these times when the commercial "music" world centered in the United States is passing through a very necessary correctional phase, a good sign has arisen right here in British Columbia with the opening of a good music station.  Bill Bellman's venture into the realm of radio and entertainment which excludes phoney "hit parades" and the slavish  following associated with it is an act which should be satisfying  to a good many people.  There is a wide range of music between the worst of rock  and roll and the highest of classical compositions but many radio people wearing "hit parade" blinders choose to. ignore the  great wealth of. music lying in between. Bill Bellman has taken  a calculated risk in opening a good music station. For the good  of everyone, including our youth "sold down the river" by fast  "buck purveyors of phoney "hit parades," one can hope that Mr.  Bellman will make good.  Henry Ford was one of the  first men to prove that a complicated thing like an automobile could be mass produced  and brought within reach of  ���the working man, if he had  the money to buy it. Other big  business men and manufacturers were quick to catch on.  For the past 50 years automation, mass production, heavy equipment, farm machinery  and more recently electronics  have made possible the manufacture, production and distribution of foods and manufactured goods: in abundance.  Many of these things were  regarded as luxuries or not  even dreamed about previous  to this period.  During this same period  working hours have shortened allowing man more time to  enjoy these things, also wages  have increased putting purchasing power in his hands to  buy them. This; is necessary "as  obviously if these goods that  are produced do not find users  able to purchase them, surpluses pile up and unemployment follows.  Also during the same time  labor unions have grown -in  {'trength until now they are  ���able to challenge the govern  ment. Undoubtedly during this  period the workingman?s ' con?  .ditions have improved/greatly  but it is problematical just how  much is due to the labor unions' efforts.

Wildlife  The great majority of wildlife  species will be found from the  iSmber line down. The timber  line generally exists up to 7000  $&et. However, mountain sheep  and goats range far above this  3ne during summer months. The  ittugar and the grizzly bear, too,  are lovers of high places. Pikas  and marmots and even certain  species of mice live throughout  the year above the timber line.  /Where there is any kind of vega-  tation there will always be found  animal life in some form or  other.  Fire Costs Down  British Columbia's forest firo  costs for 1959 were less than 17  percent of the figure for 1858.  Suppression, of 2,111 fires cost  the B.C. Forest Service $775.-  530 in 1959. For the preceding  year costs totalled $4,665,479 and  the number of fires involved  was 4,122.  Forest facts  The operations of the pulp and  paper industry in Canada extend  from coast to coast.  Fire accounts for 6 percent fo  the annual forest consumption.  The Tree Farm movement  is  spreading rapidly in Canada.  Woodlots are often very profitable for Canadian farmers.  tunate  ones   are   not.  able   to  purchase the favored one's services  at the  price   demanded.  A   large proportion   of  our  population is not able to demand an ever increasing price  for their services, also a lot of  people are living on the reward for past services, as prices increase their standard of  living deteriorates.  Also we have to be able to  sell on world markets a large  proportion of what we produce  in order to buy the things we .  want from them. No particular branch of industry or agriculture in Canada or U.S.A.  can truly say that they are independent   of  world  markets.  As long as labor costs keep  pace with increased productivity we are . all right. Unfortunately it would seem by the  increasing spiral of costs in  the past years that they were  getting dangerously out of  line.. The law of diminishing  returns is inescapable, if rising costs, force competent men  ���out of business their employees find it hard to find suit- .  able employment, .and their  purchasing power diminishes  or unemployment makes, them  a liability instead of an asset  to government. ,  In order to have prosperity  man must be busy and happy.  An idle man is not happy long.  -^E.F.      .:...���������������-��� .*.    ���     ...*���-..��� ���  Guaranteed Watch &  Jewelry Repairs  Chris* Jewelers  Mail Orders Given Prompt  Attention  Work done on the Premises  Phone Sechelt 96  LAND   ACT  NOTICE OF INTENTION TO  APPLY TO LEASE LAND  In Land Recording District of  Vancouver and situate on Sechelt Inlet.

Keep tihe base of the tree in a  container of water; the water  will be absorbed and keep the  tree" moist.  8    Coast News, Dec,  17, 1959.  Keep trees away from stoves,  heaters and fireplaces.  Use good quality electric lights  on the tree,  not  candles.  Check your lights for any defects which might cause short'  circuits.  Be sura that Christmas lights  do not overload the electrlca"!  circuits in your home.  Keep papers, gifts and other  inflammable articles away from  the base of the tree until Christmas eve.  Do not use paper, gauze-like  materials or other highly in^am-  mable cloths for childrens costumes.  Check carefully for burning,  cigarette butts after every party  or gathering in your home.  Although Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus, the  roots of the observance go deeply into the folklore of the Druids,  Scandinavians, Romans and  Egyptians.

Vancouver���Freight to be advised-  Recreation  areas sou  Sfht  The B.C. Federation of Fish  & Game Clubs has many times  urged acquisition of more public recreational lands by the various levels of government. This  has included foreshore and.  beach areas and boat launching  sites.  Today, with release of new  statistics on sport fishing along  the coasts of the United States,  the Federation emphasized that  even in British Columbia time is  running out on the hope of getting land for future public use  at a reasonable price.  In the U.S. last year, more  than 5,000,000 salt water anglers  took to the water. Twenty per-  were women, and together  they spent 70 million days fishing. In the same period, 66 million games of golf were played.  With release of the figures.  Sport Fishing Institute, an organization sponsored by fishing  tackle manufacturers and other  agencies, warned that facilities  in the U.S. are far from adequate,  particularly around urban centres. "Private development and  rising real estate prices will  soon place remaining shoreline  areas beyond the reach, of possible purchase by coriservaton,  agencies." the Institute cautioned.  The Institute noted that sew-  aee, industrial pollution, erosion,  silt, insecticides, detergents and  other by-products of modern  civilization are taking their toll  of recreational facilities in the  ocean near the developed areas  of North, America. In addition,  population. ig growing rapidly i.i  all seaboard areas.  One of the simplest forms of  conservation or recreation is improvement in habitat for sport  fish, the -Institute stated. This,,  in conjunction with greater accessibility to the foreshore has  done much to improve public  enjoyment of the shoreline near  cities. ���  In California, for example, old  auto bodies, streetcars and other sqlid debris have been dumped close to shore to provide underwater breakwaters. This has  made life easier for fish, and,  in turn, has improved the fishermen's catch.  Tae Federation, parent body  of the fish and game clubs of  this province, is currently conducting a campaign to improve  access fb recreational land and  water in British Columbia.

He  felt a travelling team of professional  people providing ju  venile court services to smaller  communities would prevent  the increase of juvenile delinquency. Larger communities  would set up their own professional teams with the aid  of  provincial  grants,  he said.  Tony Gargrave, MLA, CCF,  Mackenzie, was nominated for  the fourth time Saturday evening at Powell River to contest the next provincial election. Mr. Gargrave expects ths  election in June of  1960.  This will be the eighth consecutive time that the name  Gargrave has been on tlie general election ballot in Mackenzie. From 1937 to 1949 his  brother Herbert Gargrave was  a candidate, being elected to  the legislature on two occasions.  Speaking to the nominating  meeting Mr. Gargrave told his  supporters that the premier  would call election when it  best suited the premier and to  be ready for an election in  1960. Mr. Gargrave estimated  June as the election month.  With, the old line parties  split three ways the chances  of the CCF winning 27 seats  were good, he said.  Mr. Gargrave wa�� nominated unopposed by a mail ballot  of the CCF membership in his  300 mile long riding. The gues"-  speaker was Dave Barrett, a  fellow CCF candidate from  Dewdney. The chairman of the  meeting was Harold Chapman.  Listing demands for the riding Gargrave promised support for new and improved ferry services to the Island and  Vancouver, a new bridge to  Wild wood, more adequate  grants to villages and municipalities, and a better highway  connection to the Langdale  ferry on the Sechelt Peninsula.  Provincially, he said, a government was needed who will  protect our natural resources  in forest land and hydro power  from outside promoters who  regard this province as occupied by colonials ripe for exploitation. Better welfare services for young and old; more  old fashioned honesty in public affairs; and more ministerial interest in the development  of Tweedsmuir Park was also  needed, he said.  With an obvious reference  to the guest speaker at the  meeting, Dave Barrett, Mr.  Gargrave said civil servants  should have the same complete freedom of political activity as any other citizen.  A new system of circuit  courts for juvenile delinquents  was advocated at Powell River  Saturday evening by Mr. Barrett.  "We need these circuit courts  because, at present, punishment instead of prevention is  the focus of our existing court  system. The old method only  puts juvenile crime in cold  storage. When the emotional  problem thaws we have adult  criminals," he said.  "The old system costs money in property losses, goal and  court expenses, police protection and wasted tax moneys."

But with merely bewilderment  in the question when. the tree  persists in leaning awry, the  angel-hair with its stinging little barbs clinging more readily  to neck and arms than to the  tree, and one by one the gay  little lights give a saucy blink  and pop out.  Today, two thirds of our homes  centre their yuletide gaiety  around lighted Christmas trees.  There are many versions, of the  lighted- Christmas tree in the  home.  Some say the idea originated  centuries ago with the primitive  tribes. These tribes worshipped  nature and they brought small  trees indloors, not as decorations,  but with the idea of bringing- nature indoors to worship.  Another version tells of Martin  Luther walking through the forest one night. The stars in the  winter sky twinkling through  tall evergreens made such an  impression upon him, on reaching home he tried to describe  the scene. Words failed him. Going back into the forest he returned with a small fir tree and  placed tiny lighted candiles on  it to show the effect of stars  shining through the trees.  Through the years, other decorations have been added. The  first decorations were simple arrangements made from tufts of  Did you  Remember - -  to take home a few extra toys?

Macey  Mr. and Mrs. W.W. Brown  and son Eric spent several days  in Vancouver recently. They  met Mrs. Brown's sister, Miss  Muriel Bowles of Montreal,  at the airport. Miss Bowles  will spend Christmas here with  the Browns before returning  home in the east.  Wendy Ann, daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Coleopy  was christened by Rev. Denis  Harris at St. Bartholomews  Anglican church in Gibsons,  Sunday morning, Dec. 6. Mr.  and Mrs. Coleopy stood proxy  for godparents, Mr. and Mrs.  Charles Fullford of Vernon,  B.C. Both grandmothers, Mrs!  S. Coleopy and Mrs. A. Full-  ford were present. After the  christening Mr. and Mrs. Coleopy entertained relatives and  friends at a luncheon at their  home.  The W.A. of the Port Mellon  Community church held their  meeting and Christmas party  at the home of Mrs. W.W.  Brown. Members this year each  contributed $1 to buy subscriptions to magazines for St.  Mary's Hospital at Pender  Harbour. After' the short business meeting games and re-  /���" shments were enjoyed by  all.  cotton, strings of berries, colored popcorn and tiny wax candles  in shiny tin holders. Today is a  different story. The simple homemade craments are a thing of  the past.. Multi-color electric  lights have taken the place of  the wax candles. The strings of  berries and popcorn have given  way to garnish factory made ornaments.  The custom of erecting  gaily  decorated trees iri pubilc places  for all to enjoy, is surely one of  out nicest Christmas customs.  Perhaps the most famous of all  outdoor decorated trees is Christmas Tree Lane in Altadena California.  This mile long avenue owes  its origin to Captain Woodbury.  While serving with the armed  forces in India. Captain Woodbury was so enthralled by the  beauty of the cedars growing on  the slopes of the Himalays, he  brought seeds back and planted  them on his ranch. Through the  years the seedlings have bee a  transplanted until now, more  than two hundred large cedars  border this road.  In 1920 the local Kiwanis sponsored the lighting of this avenue  of trees. As darkness falls, more  than ten thousand multi-color  lights twinkle through the lajy  cedars, attracting thousands of  people who travel great distances for a glimpse of this  Christmas magic. Magic that iv-  spires that spirit of goodwill toward men.  While many of the old Christmas customs have changed witji  the years, the lighted Christmas  tree with the Star of Bethlehem  shining from its top-most branch,  remains a cherished tradition of  the Christmas season, emanating  joy to the world.

BLACKBALL  By  Bill Nicholls  A crowd of approximately  200 jammed Gibsons School  Hall Saturday night to cheer  on 18 young fightere in the  Peninsula Boxing Club's opening card of the season.  ' All nine bouts were exhibitions including three from "Vancouver.  In the evening's first bout,  Port Mellon's Bobby Crosby  showed a little too much experience for Jimmy Mandelkau who waa making his ring  debut.  Lloyd Sherman and Thomas  Penman Jr., a pair of seven  year olds brought the house  down in what appeared to be  the most popular fig'ht on the  card as they slugged it out toe  to toe for the full three rounds.  Tough Joey Gibson scored a  TKO over Morris Lavigne  when Morris failed to answer  the bell for the final round.  The damaging blow was a hard  right to the mid-section.  ' Other bouts included Ray  Puchalski and Paul Watson,  Rocky Zantolas and Bruce Wilson, and Mugs Mulligan and  Gene Pearl.  :" Alex Strain's Totem Athletic club provided the final three  jbouts.  ) South-paw Mellie Nahanee  fcaffled fellow club mate Louis  Miranda with his stiff overhand left and shifty footwork.  : A pair of Mission athletes,  Ed Williams and Don Edwards  provided the semi wind-up in  a battle of 125 pounders.  j Tlie much heralded Eddie  Campbell and brother Ernie  topped off the evening with a  fine exhibition.,  \ Bobby Wilson and Len Walters did an excellent job of  refereeing the bouts.

It is inexpensive and easy.  All that is required is a suitably sized piece of wallboard  and, if you want to be fancy  about it, some half-round or  narrom moulding. Sometimes  these materials can be unearthed from your "let's save it, it  may come in handy" stockpile  in the basement 'but they can  always be picked up from your  local  building   supply  dealer.  The wallboard, trimmed either square or rectangular to  your requirements;, should, ibe  painted with two aims. in view  ��� to blend in with the wall  on which it is to be hung and  to   provide   a    suitable   background for the cards. Fortunately the best paint for wall-  board   is the easy to use, no  muss latex paint. This requires  no sizing for, unlike oil-based  paints,  it  is riot absorbed by  the . porous   wallboard.    Arid  practically any  shade you desire can be found in latex paint  The painted board can be  hung in hall or living room as  is, or framed with half-round  or moulding for a more finished look. Frame can be painted  to match or, for contrast, in  white or gold  to complement  IS at  Port Mellon  Norwegian passenger-cargo  ship Nordanger docked Nov. 3  She carried bran, malt and  general to the west coast of  South America.
