Her attendants will be Gail Page, 11,  daughter of Mr. and Mrs.  George Page and Gaye Lynne  Braun, 12, daughter of Mr. and  Mrs. W. Braun.

Elphinstone  High School band will Join the  parade, also the Sechelt Elementary school band with  "bandmaster G, Fahrni.          The parade will move off at  1:30 p.m. with William Billingsley as parade marshall.  Joe Benner will be master of  ceremonies for the day. Jack  Redman will be in charge of  sports. There will be the usual  May pole dancing. It is expected that a large number of  floats will be on hand and various concessions will cater to  the. crowd.

Hackett Park was Sechelt's  Centennial project and is a  five acre block given;, to Sechelt by Union Steamships Co,  in memory of Bert Hackett  who was for many years their  resident agent, and who died  suddenly a few months after  (his retirement.  BASEBALL  A meeting for Little League  Baseball was held Sunday and  Mr. L. Labonte was made secretary treasurer, Gibsons and  Wilson Creek report they are  ready and Sechelt expects to  field a team if Dave Walker  can secure some coaching help  Port Mellon was not represented but it was decided to  try to get a team represening  Port Mellon, Hopkins Landing  and Granth*ams. The possibility of a Roberts Creek team was  discussed also.  All districts reported plenty  of players but parents and adults were criticized for their  lack oi interest. The league  will start playing on May 16.  Idiot badges?  Caller Harry Robertson and  eight members of the Hopkins  Squarenaders1 have received  Idiot Badges.  To   qualify for   this badge,  club dancers must wail till mid "  night,  wake   their   caller   and  dance until he dismisses them.  The most difficult part of  earning this badge was finding an isolated place to dance  at such an unusual hour. This  was accomplished when the  Gibsons Kinsmen club let the  dancers  use their hall.  As the caller's voice began  to fade, he took pity on the  glassy-eyed, feet burning dancers and allowed them to reach  (home before the breakfast  hour.  Happily displaying the badges are Harry Robertson, De-  anna LaBrech, Jack Inglis, Flo  Robertson, Billy Morrison,  Frank Girard, Celia Marve,  Art Holden and Violet Winegarden.  TEA AND BAZAAR  The Ladies' Auxiliary to  Roberts Creek Legion held a  very successful tea and bazaar  on April 20, which was opened by Mrs. Biggs, president of  the Sechelt auxiliary. The door  prize was won by Mrs. Stevens  the guessing box by Mrs. Mc  ���firlann, and the raffle of china  and glassware by Mrs. Angle-  man.  Municipal and school taxation for Gibsons municipality  thisi year will be slightly lower than last year. This was announced at Tuesday night's  meeting of Gibsons council in  the Municipal.Hall.  The municipal tax this year  will be 11.7 mills compared  with 13 mills last year, a decrease of one and three tenths  mills1. The school tax, set by  the provincial government,  will be 17.6 mills compared to  17.7 last year.  This means the total tax reduction in Gibsons municipality will be one and four tenths  mills below last year. Total  tax, school and municipal, last"  year was 30.7 mills and this  year 29.3 mills, a reduction of;  1.4 mills.  For. municipal purposes the  mill rate will bring in $12,432,'  the government per capita pop^  ulation grant will provide::  about $15,840, water revenue?  should gross about $16,174 ahd^  other revenue sources will'  make up a municipal operas  tion budget in the $56,000;  range. While the school taxesT  amounting to $25^79 are col-'  lected through the .municipal';  office they are turned o^er fo;l  the  school board.  Gibsons municipality provides 6.55 percent of the  school tax or $25,879. Sechelt  provides 3.81 percent of the  school tax of $15,060 while the  unorganized area within the  school district provides 89.64  percent of school requirements  or. $354,085. This brings the  ���total for school purposes to  $395,024, r.  Total'assessment for Sechelt  school district is $22,574,100  with Sechelt having a taxable  assessment totalling $860,067;  Gibsons, $1,477,333 and the un  organized territory $20,209,700  Shell tanks given close  As. the result -of, an. investigation by the provincial fire  marshall's office and R. B.  Wilson, local fire marshall,  Gibsons Village. Council was  informed at Tuesday night's  meeting the situation concerning Shell Oil tanks was checked. ���  The removal of combustible  material from vicinity of the  tanks was ordered and dikes  around will be brought up to  standard. It was also felt that  a collapse of the shore bank in  that area could occur and that  Does this  mean you?  Editor: The past secretary of  the Little League Baseball  has tailed a meeting of. persons . interested in this project.  For the past several years  there 'has been a distinct lack  of ���*���**��� interest showns in/the activities of said league, perhaps  the greatest sin lies in the fact  that there is absoluely no interest whatsoever, shown. by  the   most important  people.  The parents of -these boys  would do well to remember  that if only one night per week  could be arranged for them to  go to the playing fields and  watch the interest, shown by  their kids in this great game,  and the amount of care and  trouble taken, as well as time  and cash given by the coaches  and managers of these teams,  perhaps they would be inclined to give another look.  The youngsters are taken  over an average of. four nights  per week, and under supervision^ given pointers (on the correct way to play tae game,  both as players and gentlemen  Why the parents take this  organization for granted, I'll  never know. I suppose they  feel composed when ^they know  their kids ��� .a*^e^ being looked  after,' andyU&pifott the streets,  and are having fun in the fresh  clean air of the playing fields.  Some times I wonder whether  or not it would be a good idea  to change.the name, of the organization to that of "The Bet-  er Baby-Sitters Bureau" but  of course then we would have  to levy a charge. But I do  think it would be more in line  with the thinking of the majority of the parents who for  the greater part of the. past  four or five years, have adopted an -attitude of "I couldn't  care less."  Yes there are a few parents  who take a limited interest in  the success or failure of this  organization, but their numbers could be seated comfortably in the press-box at the  Wilson Creek ball park. That  is not enotigh. Come out and  give your support both morally and with a dime for the  plate, the latter is not too important, but come.  And this will be your opportunity to refute the above  statements, or to pitch in and  | assist the officials of the league  to delay the start of this juvenile delinquency that we  hear so  much about  H. Roberts  GUIDES'  RAFFLE  The raffled hand-made centre piece, by the Local Association to Guides-and Brownies,  was won by Mrs. C. Beacon,  holder of ticket No. 97.  construction of a cement  wall  would be. advisable.  Council thought the letter  from the fire marshall' reflected possible danger and that  tbe report was about as complete as could be expected.  The fire marshal's repcirt  suggested the proximity of the  phone booth to the tanks,  which allowed the flicking of  matches or cigarets in vicinity ���  of a tank contained danger.  The restaurant property owner next door was ordered to  clean up debris stored under  the building to remove a possible fire hazard. This had  been done, Mr. Wilson reported. .  Accounts totalling $639.31  were passed, $569.31 going to  roads and $70.46 to general  expense. Council also donated'  $25 to the Fall Fair as well  as taking a $5  advertisement:  Explains Hospital  During the last, week twp  meetings in "Gribsoiis have been'  addressed by a speaker from  the Hospital Group committee  now working towards a more  central hospital for the Sunshine  Coast.  The speaker was Harvey  Hubbs of Selma Park and he  addressed the Kiwanis club in  Danny's Dining Room on Tuesday of last week and the Elphinstone High School PTA on  Monday night of this week.  Mr. Hubbs outlined the  work done by the committee  which includes members from  Port Mellon to Pehdei; Harbor.  After about one year's hard  work the committee presented  a brief to governmental authorities in Victoria outlining  the need for a larger hospital  in the Fair booklet. ���  Commissioner Hodgson reported attending, a Civil Defence course on Vancouver Island and urged that greater interest be taken in Civil Defence in. this area. He urged local men should be given a  chance to take part in some of  the courses.  Cookie sale  on Saturday  The annual Girl Guide  Cookie Sale will aommence  April 30. Guides and Brownies  will canvass Port Mellon and  Gibsons area and Roberts  Creek.  This is the first time the  Roberts Creek area will be  canvassed by the newly formed Brownie Pack and Guide  Company. Although the district ia large and scattered, an  ..effort will be* made to cover  as many homes as possible.  . Cost cf the cookies is 40c  per box. The profit is shared  by the Guides and Brownies  and Provincial Headquarters  administration fund.  Fall-out meeting  At a meeting at the, home of.  F. Corley, Soames Point, the  Peninsula Committee on Radiation Hazards was formed. It  was decided to contact those  who signed a list circulated at  a recent PTA meeting on fallout to acquaint them with the  way in which they could take  part.  It was also decided to purchase and place books in Gib-  sens Public Library on the  subject of radiation. Those interested in this movement are  invited to attend the next  meeting of the committee, April 28, at the home of Mr. Corley on Trant road, Soames  Point. If transportation is  needed phone W. G.

The vessel arrived in British  .Columbia on April' 1 with a  ���cargo of automobiles from  Europe. She is carrying pulp  and lumber from B.C. to the  United Kingdom and Continental Europe.  She loaded 4942 short tons  of wood pulp in Port Mellon,  Dried Kraft. Port Mellon is  of which 1149 tons were Flash  the first Canadian mill to export this type of wood pulp.  F  ree carniva  Admission will be free,, at  the carnival in Gibsons School  Hall, Saturday afternoon and  evening of this week. This  carnival has been organized  by the Elphinstone Student 'Association and a considerable  amount of work has gone into  it. There will be games of  skill, a bake sale, a coffee bar  a rummage sale and bingo tables. Their fortune teller is in  a quandary because the crystal  ball used for these affairs can  not be found. However, it  might turn up yet.  The Sechelt Board of Trade  fund to assist families of the  *?ix men presumed drowned in  Sechelt Inlet, Wednesday evening, April 13 has passed the  $500 mark in strictly over-toe  counter and mail donations in  Sechelt and Gibsons.  To say the result of t>';�� appeal has been heart-warming  is to understate the case because people from all walks of  life including old age pensioners who cannot afford to give,  have been dropping in to  places where donations will be  accepted.  A wide appeal is being made  and result of that appeal will  not show up for maybe another week. It is expected that  when the fund closes there  will "be a sizeable amount available to take care cf the children in the bereaved  families.  Contributions. have been received at the Coast News of  fice and the result in some  cases has been surprising. Take  one old age pensioner. He  came in and fished around for  a dollar in his purse and put  it on the counter and said it  was more than he could afford  but ether people needed it  worse than he.  In another case a woman  put more than $40 on the counter and said she wanted to  give that to the Sechelt fund.  fc.ae did not say she was depriving herself of using that  money but the implication was  there.  While the Gibsons contributions have ranged from $1 to  larger amounts, the people who  made the contributions have  produced the surprises, not  the amounts. The Coast News  will continue to receive contributions and if any person de  sires to mail their donation, a  receipt will  be  forwarded.  Hospital improves  financial position    . _ J�� _   -���    _ j_    ai  -_\yit.i4-i��.��.  The annual meeting of the  St. Mary's Hospital Society  was held at Madeira Park hall  on Friday April 22 with 31 in  attendance.  Mr. A. Lloyd presided in  the ichair calling the meeting  to order at 8 p.m. The minutes  of the previous annual meeting of April 25, 1959 were  read, also the minutes of the  extraordinary meeting of Nov.  6 were adopted as read. President A. Lloyd gave a short  address in which he outlined  the activities of the board of  trustees for the past year and  thanked them for their cooperation and regular attendance.   He   especially   thanked  abilities, St. Mary's Hospital  has never been in a more  fcund financial position.. Following this, Mr. Hubbs reported on the 1959 fund raising  campaign and stated that the  results had been most gratifying, and especially complimented Mrs. Warden on her  untiring efforts. Mr. F.

He also thanked Mr.  Milligan for the way in which  he has not only improved the  financial position, but also the  morale of the staff.  Credit was given to Miss  Smith, the matron, and the  heads of other departments  for their co-operation and capable handling of their various  duties.  Mr. Milligan, the administrator, gave his annual financial report and it was noticeable   that   under  'his   capable  land by Messrs. Lloyd*' Milligan, Hubbs, and Mis? Smith,  the matron. These ho-nitais  were chosen because each, had  been designed by a different  firm of architects, and in this  way, they were able to ascertain, first hand, the merits of  the various firms.  The final order of business  was the election of Mr. F. H.  Norminton of Sechelt and Mr.  J. Harvey of Gibsons to the  board of trustees filling the  two vacancies. Trustees for the  St. Mary's Hospital society for  1960 are: Mrs. Warden, Messra.  A.. Lloyd, J. Donnelly, H.  Hubbs, F. H. Norminton and  J. Harvey.  Rehearsing NO cinch  "No, no! Upstage, not downstage! Put some life in it, will  you!" and so on far into the  night. Rehearsing for a play  is no cinch but no one realizes  just what is involved until  there is only a week left and  everyone is suddenly aware  that lines, scenery, costumes  and make-up are still unfinished with dress rehearsal only  a few days away.  Tempers suddenly grow  short, no one can stand the  sight of anyone else involved  in the effort and everyone  wonders how 'he got involved  in such a crazy thing anyway.  This is the .current state of  affairs at Elphinstone High  School where the drama class  is readying their three-act play  "Lights   Out"  for  Wed.,   May  4. The class has worked hard  on the play and even come out  during the Easter holidays to  paint scenery and rehearse.  The rehearsal was a regular  one but the scenery presented  a problem, as ^anyone wiho has  ever tried to melt glue will  realize. Much of the afternoon  was spent stirring a steaming  glue pot in the Industrial Arts  shop and the rest was filled  with flying paint, which did  not. always land on tbe flat.  Now that school is back in  the rehearsal part is being  stepped up in readiness for the  dress rehearsals at the beginning of next  week.  The cla&s would appreciate  the loan of several oak dining  room chairs, a small table and  a set of book cases for use  in this production.  respected Thomas J. Cook  Thomas J. Cook, a pioneer  resident of Sechelt, who died  April 13, had a varied career.  He was a native of Bromley,  Kent, born in 1863. He was 96  when he died.  He came to Canada in 1883  and spent several years with  Sir George Stephen, later Lord  Mount Stephen, first president  of the C.P.R. He travelled with  his lordship to Europe on a  fund raising campaign for the  railway and was present when  the last spike was driven.  Mr. Cook first visited Sechelt in 1893 and built the first  home there and moved into it  in April 1894, He was appointed justice of the peace in 1915.  He and Mrs. Jane Nickson  were the first school trustees  in the district and helped build  the school at Porpoise Bay with  help from the Indians. He also  built the first road to Porpoise  Bay.  He visited England after the  First World War and brought  back many heirlooms including a magnificent side board  which was the envy of the  late Senator A. D. McCrae who  offered Mr. Cook $500 for it.  Mr.. Cook refused th��� offer in  no uncertain terms. The property on which the first home  was built was sold to Captain  T. O'Keily who was then manager for the German syndicate  who had taken over the Whitaker estate. With the declaration of war the syndicate left  here.  Mr. Cock had a lovely home  nearby which contains many  relics of his seafaring days, and  when he was on the household  staff of the Empress Eugenie  of France.  He had two daughters, Mrs.  S. Dawe who was the first  white child in Sechelt and was  made a Princess by the local  band of Indians, and Mrs. H.  Whitaker, now of Pender Harbour.  During his lifetime he gave  property to the Anglican  church where now stands St.  Hilda's also Pioneer cemetery.  He was a prominent Conservative and organized the Progressive Conservative party  here.  The native Indians loved  and respected Mr. Cook in the  early days as he was always  willing to listen and help with  their problems. His great-  granddaughter, Julie Steele  was chosen to cut the ribbon  which signified the opening of  the Municipal Hall for the village of Sechelt.  Besides his two daughters,  Mrs. Dawe and Mrs. Whitaker,  there are two granddaughters.  Miss Helen Dawe, who served with distinction in the  WRENS and Mrs Billie Steele.  Great-grandchildren are Mark  and Julie Steele and Bruce and  Neil Whitaker.   There  is also  one sister and one brother in  England. ...   4. .      ;      '  ..   ���   ��   i.   *  2    Coast News, April 28, 1960.  The Tkritt Thai Comes Once in a Lifetime  A.

Cheaper protection  Saltspring Island Fire Protection district has won recognition by the Canadian Underwriters Association, states volume  ene, issue number four of Driftwood, the Saltspring Island weekly mimeographed newspaper. The new dwelling insurance rates,  flie item reads, place the fire protection district in a group four  ���cafiBjg, whereas the district was formerly in group seven.  So far this item may not mean very much to the average  reader but the fact that organization of a fire protection district  ���resulted in a 40 percent cut in fire insurance rates on homes  should have a definite message to people living outside Gibsons  xmmicipality.  At present the district served by the fire department is on  a voluntary basis as regards its financing. This means one person will give something towards maintenance of a district fire  ���dfeparlment while a next door neighbor may be neglecting his  doty and giving nothing. This is a haphazard sort of organization and fire underwriters recognize it as such knowing- it might  ���fold up at any time.  As a result fire insurance rates are kept at a safe minimum  for protection of insurance companies. When a fire protection  district is formed, all who live in the unorganized area and pay  taxes would be assessed a sum for maintenance of a fire depart-  snenL  Henry McGill, chairman of the Saltspring Fire Protection  ^Bstrict when interviewed for the weekly newspaper Driftwood,  maid the lowering of the insurance rate more than offset the increased taxation necessary in forming the fire district.  No matter how one views the situation in the area adjacent  t& Gibsons one point sticks out and that is before long there will  frer*gf> to be some guaranteed organized fire service for the area  beyond the boundaries of Gibsons municipality. Which has its  own guaranteed fire department.  Interest in fire prevention is growing, along the Sunshine  Coast with, the recent organization of a fire department at Pender Harbour and spade work now underway for one at Halfmoon  Bay.  Gibsons area Volunteer firemen are now in the throes of  chaining annual funds for maintenance of the "outside" fire service. Why should some pay while others get benefit without paying? Taxation would be the fairer way. Formation of a district  as the first requirement. Now is the time for all to come to the  aJd of Jir.re firemen and the homes they are trying to protect.  A new melting pot  A glance at the history of the past few*1 centuries reveals how  unstable friendships between nations are likely to be. England's  additional enemy for many hundred years was France, whether  it was a kingdom, an empire or a republic. Friendship between  Ihe two countries was cemented by Edward VII but the legend of  perfidious Albion" has never been wholly eradicated from the  minds of French politicians. The   Dutch have been friends to  .^England off and on, the friendship depending on whether they  should be fought as rivals in trade or cultivated as allies against  Ihe pretensions cf other European powers. Russia was England's  enemy during the Crimean war, a continuing threat to her interests in India while those existed and an undependable ally  daring parts of the two world wars.  Between wars it has been customary for England to cultivate the friendship of Germany. The wisdom of this course was  doubtful between 1918 and 1939. The wisdom may still be doubted, although the threat from Russia may make it the best choice  cfihai can be made for the present. The rise of the neo-Nazi party,  and the apparent fact that many old Nazis who worked for the  Hitler regime have regained positions of power are disturbing to  tlhose who are working sincerely for a peaceful world.  Since Canada is becoming the melting pot of races that the  United States once was, she cannot be expected to support England automatically in all matters of foreign policy. This country's  chief interest should be to prevent new citizens from bringing  their old European quarrels to Canada with them. The new citi-  zens can enrich Canada with their skills and good customs. Imports of their feuds and racial prejudices are emphatically not  desired. ���The Printed Word.

Seeguapik  became the first Eskimo to be  elected  to  the   Sculptors'   Society  of Canada.  He   lives  at  Povungnituk,   a   trading    post  en   the   east  side   of Hudson  Bay at the mouth of the Povungnituk River.  Which   city  has   the  largest  police   force?  Montreal, Canada's largest  city, also has the largest municipal police force in the country. Its force numbers about  2,400. Toronto is in second  place with some 1,500 on its  force. Other cities with more  than 200 membens on their  police forces include Vancouver, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Ot-  t a w a, Quebec, Edmonton,  Windsor and Calgary. There  are approximately 12,000 men  and women on municipal police forces in Canada. In addition to municipal forces,  Canada has a federal body,  the Royal Canadian Mounted  Police, and two provincial police organizations, one in Ontario and the other in Quebec.  What   is   popularly  known   as  halm of Gilead?  The balsam poplar, P. bal-  samifera L., a medium-sized  tree usually 50 to 60 feet in  height, is popularly known as  balm of Gilead. In some river  valleys northwest of the prairies this tree reaches 100 feet  in height. Its range is very  wide and it can be found  growing in most areas oi Canada south of the tree-line, except on the coast of British  Columbia. The buds of the  balsam poplar are large and  reddish - brown with scented  resin. Its leaves are oval to  heart-shaped and are pale below with rusty patches. Like  the trembling aspen, another  member of the poplar family,  it is valuable for lumber and  firewood.  COFFEE INSTEAD  Some drivers think a cup of  coffee after alcohol i^ a good  idea.

His object, was to derive butter-  fat from beef suet by a process  resembling the natural formation  of milk. He called the resultant  fatty body oleomargarine. He believed that milk fat was a derivative of body fat and subjected  the suit to a synthetic digestive  process. Later the digestive process was abandoned and vegetable oils, treated so as to remain solid at room temperatures,  were substituted for .body fats.  Further improvements in ths  quality of the product have resulted from the progressive purification of vegetable oils used in  tne manuxacowing process and  from th# use of such additives  as milk solids, emulsifying agents  and r vitamins. Canada first passed regulatory legislation, making it illegal to manufacture or  sell any substitute for butter  manufactured from any animal  substance other than milk, in'  1886. Between 1917 and 1923 the  sale of margarine was legalized  because of butter shortages. A  ban was again imposed in the  latter year and was hot lifted  until 1948 when the Supreme*..  Court rvled that the manufacture  and sale, but not the importation, of margarine was legal in  Canada. In several provinces,  however, it remained illegal to  color margarine to resemble butter, and in Quebec it has remained illegal to manufacture or sell  THE CORPORATION OF THE VILLAGE OF SECHELT  ZONING BY-LAW No. 22  '   yy'  r;:.;    vd   .-    -;v.��      ~^1"^ nivs .   :.yj :CL:       &<.-t>t  [Take notice ttutf the Council of the Corporation of the  Village of Sechelt.will hold a hearing at the Municipal Hall,  SeteheBto, at the hour of 8:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.1 on the 4th day  of May 1960, under provisions of tfoe Municipal Acftto consider the proposed rezoning of property described as: Lot'"F"  of Block eleven district lot 303/304 and Lojfc 25 of "G" of block  eleven district lot 303/304 from "Residential''' to "Commercial."

Coast News, April 28, 136��   3  Come   Spring,    a   woman's  fancy turns to thoughts of   new clothes! Happily, there's  a breathtaking variety of fabrics available that will mafce  sewing for spring and summer exciting as well ae economical.  A word to the wise, though.  We must avoid being so dazzled by delightful designs and  unusal textures, as our local  sewing center experts caution,  that we blithely purchase material, attractive in itself, but  unbecoming to uis. Fabric must  never be bought for its own  saKe- it must oe carefully. selected to compliment our skin,  eyes, hair, figure ��� and personality!  Did you know that a woman's "most becoming color"  is not a constant thing? As the  pigmentation of our skin,  eyes, hair, and even teeth  change, so should the. color  scheme of our "wardrobes. Because a girl looked stunning  in   fire-engine   red  at twenty  POUND DISTRICT ACT  WHEREAS under the provisions of this Act, application  has been made to the Lieutenant-  Governor in Council to constitute  as a pound district certain land  in the vicinity of Roberts Creek,  which may be more particularly  described as follows :���  Commencing at the south-west  corner of Lot 1541, Group 1, New  Westminster   District,   being   a  point on the northerly highvvater  mark  of the Strait of  Georgia;  thence   northerly   and   easterly  along the westerly and northerly  boundaries of said Lot 1541  to  the   north-east   corner   thereof;  thence   easterly   and   southerly  along the northerly and east.er.ty  boundaries   of   Lot 6213 to th-j  south-east   corner   of . said   Lot  6213;  thence easterly along the  northerly boundaries of Lots 1321  and 3354 to the north-east corner  of said Lot 3554; thence northerly and easterly along the westerly  and northerly  boundaries of  Lot 1319 to the north-east cornsr  thereof:   thence   easterly   along  the   northerly   boundary of Lot  1320   to   the   north-east   corner  thereof;  thence   southerly  along  the easterly  boundaries of  Lot  1320 and 3381 to the south-east  corner of Lot 3381; thence westerly along the southerly boundary of said Lot 3381 to the easterly boundary of Lot 810; thence  southerly along the said easterly  boundary of Lot 810 to the northwest corner of Lot 1506; thence  easterly and southerly along the  northerly and easterly boundaries  of said Lot 1506 to a point due  west of the north-west corner of  Lot 5820; thence east to the said  north-west   corner;   thence   east  to   the   said north-west corner;  doesn't mean that it will remain her "best" color for the  next forty years.  Every few j'ears, a woman  should reappraise her basic  color scheme. This she can  do at the fabric counter, by  draping    fabrics    of    various  hues against her face and over  her shoulder critically examining the results in a .full-  length mirror.  To help us in this task, we  should familiarize ourselves  with a few basic color selection  hints.  Colors, tints, and shades  should be selected to accentuate our coloring and not to  outshine or diminish it. For instance, there are blues so brilliant, that they steal the color  from blue eyes. Care must be  exercised to choose fabric  shades suitable to our own figure proportions, age, occupation and personality.  Color choice should be made  according to the garment's intended function, the wear expected from it, and the season  in which it will be worn.  When undecided, remember  the adage of local sewing center .' experts: "When in doubt,  choose black."  Should your favorite color  prove slightly unsuitable, use  it sparingly as an accent or in  accessories. By the way, a  wardrobe "accent" is a good  way of distracting from a figure fault. The woman with a  generous secretary spread can  use her contrast color at the  neck, say in a scarf, to draw  attention away from her hips.  Never think that any season  has failed to provide a fashionable color for you. There are  invariably tints and shades of  all sylish colors to suit every  type. Manufacturers see to  that!.  When versatility is expected from garments, sew a ward-  robe of "basics" in neutral  tones, using your "best" colors as accents and accessories.  Recently, a home sewn wardrobe, co-ordinated for travel  to Bermuda and subsequent  wear in Canada, featured  beige as its basic color. The  latter could be accessorized  with gold and olive green, for  brown or hazei-eyed women,  and gold and turquoise for  blue-eyed globe-trotters.  ^ ..... .._.- ...���____��..__  ��� ���^ %^yy  888 ��� HAPPY CLOWN 'JAMA BAG'teaches the neatness habit to  young children.

Much admired  was the construction of the interior woodwork, a surprising  talent of Jean herself. Tea was  served and visitors received a  beauty aid gift.  Mary and Alec Lamb and  Alec jr., and Billy were guests  at the Seabeach motel. They  are now .living in West Vancouver.  Mr. and Mrs. Reg Phillips  came down from Egmont, visiting Sylvia and Gilbert McNutt, Helen and Glen and their  families.  Mrs. H. Roberts visited her  son and family at Penticton.  Daughter Evelyn Lucken with  Linda Sandy spent several  days at the Roberts home.  Ron, Peggy and Jack Whittaker are leaving soon for the  Shushwap Lake resort. Some  of the new units will be ready  for tourists this summer. Sorrento P.O. is their mailing address.

For parents only  By   Nancy  Cleaver  Copyrighted  Tihere are many childish activi  ties such as playing.with marbles  or skipping which are fun but  they belong only to little boys  and girls. Gardening is an interest which can begin in. prer  achool years and last 'throughout  the whole life.  So much time is spent today on  spectator fun, watching others  perform on a playing field, or a  TV screen, or at a movie, or listening to the radio. All these  have a place in the modern world,  but they should not crowd out  active, creative leisure time pursuits. In gardening, a child is  not just looking and listening. Ho  is planning and doing and observing .results for his efforts. He is  working in the sunshine and fresh  air and discovering that patience  and care and skill are all needed  to produce fine flowers and vegetables.  *    J?    *  "Junior doesn't show much enthusiasm about gardening! His  teacher has been telling the  scholars what a good hobby it is.  But I wonder whether it is worthwhile bothering about a child's  garden when there' are so many  things to interest children today," Junior's. mother asked her  new neighbor!  Mrs. Black smiled and admitted, "My husband and I are both  enthusiastic gardeners and our  two children have helped us plant  and care for both flowers and  vegetables ever since they were  little. We don't have to persuade  our two to garden. However, we  do have to see they don't squabble about the special piece of  ground we allot to each of them .  each spring for their own special  garden!"  *    *    *  Gardening is often an activity,  which every member of the family enjoys. Even if parents are  not ardent gardeners, it is a good  idea to give a boy or girl encouragement in growing things, if  they show a desire to plant their  own garden. .,'-,  Make your pennies work for you.

LANG'3, Rexall Drug  Store, Gibsons and Sechelt.  jThere are many communities  where service clubs or interested!  organizations working to serve  the best interests of boys and  girls promote a gardening competition. For over half a century  in "Winnipeg, hundreds of children have been encouraged to  garden in the Shield competition  established by the late Mayor R.  D. Waugh. The committee in  charge of this commendable activity, points out the importance  of children learning to work for  beauty in their surroundings, and  th,e value of the team work necessary between the boy or girl and  the adult director, who usually  has half a dozen young gardeners in his or her care.  The garden in this competition  may be a vacant lot. The suggested size is not less than one hundred square feet and not more  than one hundred and fifty  square feet. A marker should  indicate the exact position of the  child's garden, and there should  be no path or division to the  garden plot.  *    *    *  Expert   gardeners   have   been  consulted in the choice of three  types of annual flowers. (Batche-  Kt.-o Buttons, Marigolds and Zinnias), and three varieties of vegetables, (Dwarf Beans, Beets and  Intermediate    Carrots),    to    be  planted in  Competition gardens.  To insure fairness and uniform  seed, each competitor must obtain*  the  six packages   of seed from  the Committee in charge and the  cost is only forty cents for the  six packages.  The age of the gardeners must  he eight years or over but they  must not have reached their fourteenth birthdlay by May 1st. Most  of the boys and girls, entering  this competition for the first  time are of Junior age, but once  they begin, many continue until  they must "graduate." This is a  commendable community youth  project.  ": . *    *    #   '  When the time, for the Horticulture or . Flower show comes  round, make a family excursion  and enjoy the wonderful display  of color, smell the fragrance of  hundreds of blooms, see the tasteful special displays and the clev-  fH'-'flower arrangements. A hapny  time spent in this way may fire  a ^youngster with eagerness to  plant a garden the next spring,  or arrange plants in a flower box,  or help with a floral centerpiece  fc,***- the dining room table.

THE BANK OF  NOVASCCTJA  bracket market  The tourist industry in Canada should concentrate on providing good holidays for the  middle and lower income  groiups, Alex _ Morrison, past  president of the Canadian Automobile Association told the  American Automoble Association's national touring board  meeting   in   Toronto  recently.  "The jet aircraft is stealing  a lot of thunder from the  horseless carriage," he said.  There is probably little that  can be done to change the lure  of Europe for the higher income brackets, but we can  sharpen our appeal to the middle and lower income group.  By making access to our unexcelled tourist attractions  easier and cheaper, he said, we  can cater more specifically to  this kind of travel business.  "Canada is made to order  for a reasonably priced vacation," Mr. Morrison said.  "There is probably no country on earth that has a broader range of attractions: skiing,  hunting, fishing, leisure, sightseeing, unique and interesting  metropolian areas, and a wide  selection of festivals and jamborees."

Slight recognition is giv6n  these drivers who, through their  own efforts or good fortune,  escaped mishap or police action.  Organizations devoted to reducing the number of accidents on  the nation's streets and roads  must give almost their entire attention to drivers who were involved in accidents or were guilty  of infractions of traffic regulations. There were some half million of them in Canada last year.  The highway's good drivers  went through the year with littlo  recognition. Some communities  honored them during safety campaigns by naming "Mr. Safe-  Driver," giving medals or shopping orders on local stores and  interviews on radio or television.  But the great majority of the  five and a half million accident-  free and infraction-free motorists  sailed along their honorable way,  unsung and unglorified.  Their reward was great. It included freedom from the hien  cost of repairs, litigation, medical  and hospital bills, pain, suffering  and anguish. They had, .the uncomfortable security of watching  their half-raillidn colleagues of  the oavemerit writhing in the bitter fruits of the consequences of  disaster whether it lasted 30 seconds or a lifetime.

"With the  co-operation 'of family doctors  and the women of this province,  we can lead the way for the rest  of Canada in controlling a cancer*  which currently kills some 650  Canadian women each year."

Only 25c  -whether-they be trucks, buses or  taxicabs, are honored by their  employers and organizations if  they pile up handsome records  of safety at the wheel. Communities with oustanding records of  road safety are cited each year  by the Canadian Highway Safety  council. But the man who drove  .his private car through the  menacing maze of modern motorized machinery went on his  way with nothing much in the  way of thanks. In fact, often he  was the target of abuse from the  motorist who tried to sneak  around .the laws of man or nature and found his way successfully blocked by the driver who  was doing what he knew he  should do.  So the Canadian Highway Safety council, joined, it is certain,  by provincial, community industrial and government safety officials, expresses appreciation to  the safe driver for his care, consideration and attention. He saved his country countless millions  of dollars, and his fellow Canadians many hours of suffering.
