SSWSTj i  Gibsons- Ratepayers   association    will    ask   for    another  speaker to explain at a meeting which will be open to the  public,  more  about   the negotiations underway, towards obtaining a hospital for the Port  Mellon to Jervis Inlet area.     *  Some members at the meeting thought there was . insufficient     information     available  about   the   project    and   that  more   should   be   divulged. \ It  Was explained to the meeting  that    the    present    committee  which   drafted   the   brief   for  presentation   to   Victoria   outlining the needs for a ^hospital  was awaiting word that the department    had    approved    in  principle the idea .of a hospital.   Some memoeris expressed  the fear that Gibsons was -being left out. of the picture. The  meeting, therefore   decided   to  ask. for another speaker to outline the situation.  . A question was. asked .as to  whether     municipal      bylaws,  were   available for inspection  at    the    municipal    hall    and  Councillor   Wes   Hodgson   explained   they   were   and  that  they could be purchased at so  ���much per sheet.  The meeting also supported  in principle the Suggestion  made by Barry Macdonald.  provincial sanitarian to the  village council that it go into  garbage collection and disposal. No motion was passed as  the meeting decided to. await  further information which Mr  Macdonald is to present to  council after ascertaining what  is being done at other places  of a similar size. Shell Oil  Company tanks were mentioned again? but the meeting was  ^advised k the s?f h^ararshaU; in-/  tended to make ah inspection  of the tanks.  Mr?   3.  B.   Simeon,   district  provincial   social   worker  screened the   film  "A   Friend  at the Door" which   depicted  the many phases of social welfare work. Following the film  he discussed various aspects of  social   work and outlined the  adoption  procedure   which  he  said   sometimes  took   as  long  as one year to complete before  the   department  would  allow  an adoption to take place. He  said he found this area to be  a good foster parent territory  He also delved into assistance  for old folks and urged them  to apply for help if they were  ���worried  about  their   financial  future, gome time before their  crisis would arrive because, he  explained, it takes time to process cases and in the meantime  there  could   be hardship.   He  urged aged citizens to take advantage   of  the  welfare assistance because it also included  medical and dental services.  , Mr. Simeon said he was available   on   the   peninsula   on  Mbnday, Tuesday and Wednesday of each week at the Provincial   Health   office in   Gibsons.  Easter cantata  on April 14  An Easter Cantata will be presented in Gibsons United Church,  commencing at 8 o'clock on the  evening of Thursday, April 14.

There will be another practice on Sunday next starting  flt 1 p.m. Boys aged from 12 to  15 are invited to take in the  practice and try for a team  position.  One of the largest and most  representative     gatherings     in  the history of Pender Harbour  assembled   in  the   Community  Hall,  Madeira   Park,   last Fri-  ?day   evening?   to   honor   Rev.  Canon     and    Mrs.    Alan    D.

This  comprised a personal canvass  of the Harbour area,.and letters inviting support" from outlying communities; and from  various legging, fJishing and  tugboat "operators within the  area covered by. the Canon's  ministry.  ��� The ; local canvass received  warm-hearted, response from  residents of the Harbour and  district whilst donations which  poured in from'the operators  provided striking testimony to  the .fact that the esteem in  which the Canon was held extends far beyond the confines  of Pender Harbour.  Prior tp their appearance at  the hall, Canon and Mrs.  Greene were entertained to  dinner at the Pender Harbour  'Hotel by a representative  group cf friends: Mr. and Mrs.  Jim Cameron; Mr. and Mrs.  Royal Murdoch; Mr. and Mrs.  /Jack Potts; Mrs. Elsa Warden,  and Mr.   Frank Ball..  ,^ ,x Meantime,    the-.-. -.assemblage'  .

William Haley was  nominated as delegate to this  convention.  Next executive meeting will  be held April 11 and the next  regular meeting, owing to the  third Moriday falling on Easter  Monday will be held Mon.,  April 25 in the Kinsmen Club  House starting at 2 p.m.  Thanks were expressed to Mrs.  Mary Hunter and Mrs. Margaret Smith who handled the  transportation problems on behalf of the Kinettes and to Mrs.  jEllen Marshall and Mrs. Margaret Emerson who prepared  and served  refreshments.

There is a chance that the lights will cease to shine on the  strip of Sechelt Highway through Selma Park. The Selma Park  Community Centre has managed to pay for these lights since'  1950 by collecting donations from householders plus the backing  of their own funds.  'A new contract has now been signed which is treble the cost  of the old one. The response for support already made to resident  householders has been far from satisfactory. Without the co-operation of some Vancouver people who have summer homes in  Selma the contributions to date would be much less than they  are,.  To reach the target it was estimated that $5 per householder  per year would be needed. The appeal now is, if you have not  given please give whatever you can afford, as every dollar will  help to keep the lights.  School tax unchanged?  The board of school trustees  reports acceptance and approval of the I960 school budget by  the school representatives, municipal couricilSj of Gibsons  ;: and. Sechelt. No definite fig*-  ures aire yet available from the  department of education, but  it is expected the mil rate will  be much the same as last year.  At a previous meeting with  the representatives it was suggested a trip be arranged for  senior students to the Fisheries  ���station at Nanaimo, and a reply from the station has just  /been received to the effect  that open house will be in late  1961 or 1962. The secretary  was requested to advise the  representatives of this reply  and to write to the Fisheries  ptation requesting permission  for a tour by students when  (possible.  The British Columbia School  Trustees Association has announced the date of the next  convention at the Hotel Vancouver on  Oct.  10 to 12.  Mr. Chaster reported on  maintenance, work in- the different schools and suggested  the    appointment    of    Arthur  (Swanson to the janitor staff of  Elphinsone High School. This  was approved by the board. ���>  The tables donated by , the  Pender Harbour Community  club will, be acknowledged  -- with thanks and table tops suitable for outdoor weather will  'be installed by the mainten:  ance department. A letter of  thanks will be sent to John  Haddock for material and labor donated by him for sports  equipment for the Pender  Harbour  High School.  Meetings with the Sechelt  Teachers' liaison committee  and the Sechelt Employees' association will be arranged by  the secretary at dates suitable  to   tooth   organizations.  Subsequent to the March 28  meeting word has been received from the departmerit of  education announcing the approval of the tenders for the  new Trail Bay Jr. High school  at Sechelt and the Halfmoon  Bay Elementary School and  the addition to the Elphinsone High School. The successful bidders have been notified  and work should be started in  the near future.  Hundreds at PTA Carnival  Red Cross  near total  Up to the end of March and  with some more money to be  turned in the Red Cross canvassers report they are almost  at their objective, $700. Figures actually tabulated for  Gibsons area were $621 with  two areas still to   report.  Rev. David Donaldson, president of the Gibsons-Port Mellon branch has announced he  is quite pleased with the efforts of the canvassers and also  for the excellent donation from  the Port Mellon HS�� Employees' Fund which totalled $150  "With continued appeals for  this and that campaign it is to  the credit of the people of Gibsons and other parts of the  Peninsula that they are able to  continue their good work on  behalf of the Red Cross. For  this someone in the world will  at some time be thankful there  are such people," he added  Gibsons Elementary PTA extends a sincere vote of thanks  to the hundreds of people in  the community who helped to  make its Sixth Annual Carnival a great success. More than  300 adults and children packed the School Hall last Saturday night to partake in the  festivities.  Gaily decorated stalls of  fewing, plants, jewelry, candy and home-baking offered  tempting wares and children  thoroughly enjoyed the clown  game, fish pond and dart  game. The first stall to sell  out was the ever popular  "post office" booth and the  last to close were the very  busy bingo tables and refreshment stand.  Winners of various raffles  were Mrs. W. Skellett, Larry  Inglis, Mrs.. Crowhurst sr.  Mrs. B. Stewart, Mrs. L. Coates  Thelma Volen and Charles  Scorgie.  Under the capable management of the convenor, Mrs.  Marion Alsager this event  again proved to be well worth  the effort. People throughout  the community gave freely of  their support and patronage  Through the Elementary school  the children contributed items  and Mr. D. Hill's class was rewarded for their outstanding  efforts. Donations and volunteer   work    came   from   PTA  members,   local   citizens   and  store-keepers.    Special   thanks  to Kiwanis club members who  operated the Bingo game.  Vhe carnival proceeds are  used in carrying out of PTA  objectives which will best benefit the children in our district.  A  full report  on the carnival will be given at the regular monthly meeting, Monday  April   11   at   the   Elementary  school.  Also   on   the   program  at this meeting will be an open  discussion on   the many  interesting   topics to  be presented  at the coming* Federation convention. Should the Ten Commandments be read each morning in schools? Should elementary   schools   include   Grades  one to  seven?  These are just  two of the subjects which are  of great interest to those concerned with education.

Our Sea-going Parson  A Sort of a Saga  I'm going to tell a tale about a Church of England chap  Who did a lot to help put Pender Harbour on the map.  He started fifty years ago to make his presence known;  And ever since, his reputation's grown and GROWN and  GROWN.  He started as a student ��� just as green as green could be.  And when he graduated, why, he still was Greene, you see.  He soon became a Big Gun, and was very, very keen;  That's the reason, when promotion came, they called him  Canon Greene.  In Skipper's cap and uniform, he sailed the briny deep  A shepherd of the Gospel to his scattered flock" of sheep.  He prospered in his calling, and in due course donned the mantle  Of his famous missionary chief, the Reverend John Antle.  He was called 'The Great White Father' by the children of the  coast.  The man who never failed them was their everlasting boast.  He baptised 'em, and christened 'em, and steered 'em clear of  Hell;  He married 'em, and preached to 'em ��� and buried them a9  well.  When the Canon went to sea, he had a crew to sail the course.  One single, solitary guy he called his 'old work-horse.'  So, the crewmen, they were two men oil the boat, and that was  all.  - One was Ball, and oneI the Canon���'they combined as  "Canon-Ball."  With the Malaspina waters lashed by rain and snow and hail  And the tall seas whipped to fury by the violence of the gale;  Full often in some sheltered cove, secure from storm and stress  The Padre, and his side-kick would be iburied deep ��� in chess!  But ��� through the night, an urgent call. A signal of distress.  No storm could hold this gallant pair from venturing their  quest.  And many a broken body has survived to tell the tale  Of how the good ship "Antle" came in answer to their hail.  The Mission built a hospital ��� with ever-open door.  The Canon kept it organized for twenty years or more.  Then Gov'ment complicated things ��� and folks began to holler;  So ��� our Canon sold the whole works to the public ��� for a  dollar!  These thirty lines of doggerel can't begin to tell the story  Of fifty years of sacrifice ��� with never thought of glory.  Now ��� Canon Greene to pastures green, with never care to press  him;  From north to south along the Coast, the cry goes up "God  Bless Him."  Peter Trappitt, April 1, 1960.  Prepared by the Research Staff of  EN CYC10P E D I A   CA NADIANA  What was sea forest plantation?  This was the name of Newfoundland's first formal colony,  founded by John Guy in 1610.  The seat of the colony was what  is known today as Cupids, then  called Cuper's Cove. In addition  to homes built for his 39 colonists, Guy built a fort enclosed  by a stockade with a battery of.  three guns. In 1611 the first  Anglican clergyman to come to  Newfoundland arrived at Cupids.  John Guy returned to his native  city of Bristol about 1614 and  eventually became its mayor. He  was succeeded at Cupids by Capt.  John Mason, who later became  the founder of the state of New  Hampshire. As a unit the colony  lasted only 18 years, but descendants of the original settlers are  still to be found in Cupids. Today'the settlement, which is on  the east side of Conception Bay  about 52 miles west of St. John's,  depends upon fishing and farming for its existence.  *  *  Where was Newfoundland's  first public library?  At Harbour Grace, on Conception Bay on the island's east  coast. In 1815 the colony's first  public library was opened here.  The town also has the distinction of being the site of Newfoundland's first runway for aircraft. Several early transatlantic  flights started from Harbour  Grace.  The town is one of the oldest  and most historic in the province; the first settlers on the  site arrived about 1550. At one  time, early in the 17th century  the pirate Peter Easton had his  headquarters here.  Which was the first newspaper  Who wrote the first Canadian  novel?  Frances Brooke, who wrote Th?  History of Emily Montague, published in four volumes in London  in 1769. Often called the first  Canadian novel, the book has a  Canadian setting and contains interesting glimpses of life in Quebec, despite the fact that its  author spent a relatively short  time in this country. Mrs. Brooke,  who was born in England in 1724  and died there in 1789, was the  daughter of the Rev. William  Moore. She married the Rev.  John Brooke, who from 1760 to  1768 was chaplain to the British  garrison at Quebec. She joined  her husband at Quebec about  1763 and returned with him to  England in 1768. A new edition  of The History of Emily Montague was published in Ottawa in  1913.  *    *    *  Where was Hen-and-Chickens  Harbor?  This was the name given to  the harbor at Collingwood, Ont.,  because of some off-shore islets,  after it had been surveyed by the  young Sandford Fleming, a civil  engineer with the Northern Railway of Canada who was later to  achieve fame and a knighthood.  Collingwood, on Georgian Bay,  was originally a part of the territory of the Tobacco Indians.  White pioneers termed the locality an "impenetrable swamp."  The first settler, in 1835, was  George Carney. In 1855 the community became the northern  terminus of the Ontario, Simcoa  and Huron Railway from Toronto.  In 1858 the railway was renamed  the Northern Railway of Canada-  and it is now part of the Canadian National system.  It usually takes a public  function to bring out some of  the facts and fancies concerning the life of leaders in a  community. The function for  Canon and Mrs. Greene was  no exception.  Jim Cameron started off  revelations concerning Canon  Greene as a sea-going parson,  by recounting how when  aboard ship during the war a  voice hailed them and the hail-  er was invited aboard. Descend  ing to where he heard the  voices, the Canon found a poker game underway with what  Mr. Cameron described as  "seven-up" in glasses on the  table. The poker participants  were caught off balance by  having the padre view poker  and "seven-up" as their source  of entertainment. However,  the padre mollified them and  after the game broke up a  chin-wag followed with the result the poker fiends found the  padre knew more about cards  than   they suspected.  When it came to the Canon's  period of revelations he commented when a presentation  was made "to Frank Ball, the  canon's crew, that he had been  with Ball eight years and what  a shipmate he had been. Then  he added "I've stood up to his  cooking for the last eight  years, and survived."  Then going back to his early days as a youthful member  of the Anglican ministry, he  felt terrified at the prospect of  his first service at a logging  camp. However he saw the  camp foreman first whose advice was "Don't preach any  sky dope.'  So the young minister was  surprised to note a sudden  departure of all but two members of the camp to nearby  Lund.  The two remaining   in .  -.mUW with a chopped foot'and  the fireman in charge of  the  boiler, neither of whom could  escape.  Later he had to go to a Sun-  Lightning (lash  two miles long  Lightning moves from the  earth to the clouds, not downward. The average flash is two-  miles long and, when fully used,  could bring 8,000 gallons or  wated to a boil. These discoveries have been made by a team  of South American scientists.  The team was originally headed by Dr. Basil Schonland, who  now holds Britain's highest post  in physics ��� he is Director of  Atomic Energy at Harwell. The  work on lightning in the Union,  is being carried on by experts  such as Dr. David Malan, Prof.  David Hodge, Dr. E. C. Halliday  and Prof. N. Clarance.  Some facts which their studies  have produced contribute to the  awe in which a thunderstorm is  held, while other facts could  save hundreds of lives. For example, their research has revealed that the average flash is two  miles long, but it is not all there  at the same moment. It is actually a bolt; travelling* two miles in  about a ten-thousandth of a second. Two clouds, each flashing  every twenty seconds, develop  about as much energy during the  storm as all the power stations  in South Africa put together.  Johannesburg is the biggest  storm centre in South Africa,  having   from   eighty   to   ninety  days of    storm a year. During  November, seven people were  killed on the Witwatersrand by  one bolt of lightning. But it runs  far * behind places in Central  Africa which have up to 242  storm days a year.  MOOSE SURVEY  The annual Fish and Game  branch aerial surveys of moose  populations in portions of the  Cariboo districts, Chilcotin and  Prince George regions began in  January, In the southern areas  a lack of sufficient snow has  handicapped operations and tha  work was further complicated by  a forced landing and resultant  damage to the chartered aircrait.  P.reliminary reports from the  Burns Lake area indicate high,  densities of moose but a wider  distribution of animals than observed last year. Some flights  have yielded counts averaging a  moose per minute of flight time.  There is considerable public interest in these winter moose  counts.  WILD ANIMAL PARK  Wild animals of all types roam  Moose Jaw Wild Animal Park,  which is located one and a half  miles south of Moose Jaw. It is  an ideal picnic spot with a grand  opportunity for big-game hunting  with a camera.  day service at Lund and the  Sunday fell on May 24. As  the Canon described it, no one  was in shape to go to church  on Sunday so the service was  held Monday night, instead.  He described the meeting  which consisted of women on  one side of the room and men  on the other, not seeming to  mingle at all. Time for collection came so he asked a nearby  rough-and-ready stalwart to  take hig h3* anc* make the  rounds*. Someone tried to put  two-bits into the hat but the  "conveyor" of the collection  would not stand for it. No one  gets off with less than a buck,  he said. So the donor took back  the two-bits and forked out  a dollar.

The smaller number of producers not only kept the fighting personnel going but they  managed to supply ships laden  with goods as sub targets, their  valuable targets going to the  bottom. To accomplish this  the woman was patriotically  inveigled from the home to  the factory. Decades later with  the help of our modern wonder gadgets our mothers are  not overly mindful of the old  slogan about home being the  mother's place. So in many  cases we find mother and father working away from home  and the children caring for  themselves. No dishes to wash  after lunch for it's coke m  one hand and bun in the other.  Mother and father return  from work, T.V. has a special  program, another coke and this  time sandwich is arranged rather than a cooked meal, for  this is bingo night, next night  we find there's a square dance  then it's cards etc. The school  teacher can take care of John  and Mary's   discipline.  I trust we haven't another  depression around the corner,  for the war cure would be  worse than the disease. In my  humble opinion the main reason for not having World War  3 is universal fear. With having all these terrible death-  dealing gadgets the time is at  hand to ask ourselves if there  isn't some way whereby world  affairs can be governed without war. True scientists differ  as to what might be the ultimate outcome of World War  3, but what a hope! The  thought that there would still  be life left is anything but  comforting when we find that  the unborn would be far better  unborn than be malformed and  imbecilic  Then as you Mr. Editor mentioned we have the hush-hush  developments of germs and  nerve gases where ounces (not  tons) released, says goodbye  mother earth. Just for added  diabolic dreams we read of  the Fort Detrick laboratories  with the stock piles of mosquitoes infested with plague,  houseflies infested with anthrax and dysentry, ticks infested with tularemia relapsing fever etc., and for extra  good measure we learn of  studies being made of the best  way to attack wheat, barley,  rye, oats, rice and cotton, and  still further new psycho-chemicals to make men crazy for  certain lengths of time, one  has the urge to ask isn't there  enough   of   us   afflicted  with  that bug alreaidy?  A recent paper carries the  following/ ?The . federa^goyern-*  ment 'Ifias Irifr siniple'iieviee'to  give Canadians on how to survive a nuclear attack, the Commons estimates committee was  told Thursday." This same  press release goes on to outline the futility of any kind  of warning due to attendant  consequences. It behoves us  all to do a spot of thinking,  for it may be later than we  think.  Dave Rees  Editor: There are countries  in this small world of today  where war-mongering is a  criminal offence yet we on' tjhe  peninsula received a pamphlet  in the mail filled with, hatred  and war-mongering ideas. At  the end of it is printed the information that any monetary  contributions to Moral Re-Armament are deductible from income tax.  I refer to the pamphlet "Ideology . and Co-existence" which  obviously must have multi-millionaire backers as the cost of  printing and distributing the  20,001,000 copies they mention, is no small item.  We must ask ourselves  whose interests these people  serve when we see them belittling via double-talk and confusion (page 28) thee excellent  work of some cViurch: leaders  for specific action toward disarmament. The actions and  ideas of men like Cyrus Eaton,  Bertrand Russell, Dr. Pauling,  the late Albert Einstein and  Mr. Kruschev's recent visit o  the USA are positive but the  planned confusion and insincerity expressed in this pamphlet are all negative.  Our leadership that sanctions monetary contributions  as being deductible from income tax to support such ideas  in this day and age must also  be negative and scared stiff  of: the economic consequences  of complete disarmament.

NATURE'S  CONTROLS  Nature is never wholly in  balance and all life forms possess the innate power to multiply far beyond their normal  death rate unless controlled by  some system of checks and  balances.  It is when such checks are  no longer operative, as when  men drive predatory birds  from the countryside and the  rodent and insect populations  suddenly expand with almost  explosive vigor that we begin  to realize the dangers attendant upon the advance? of civilization and the need for intelligent conservation of all life  forms.  HUNTING LICENCE SALES  Hunting pressure in British Columbia continues to grow. In  1959 it reached the all-time high  of 115,149 residents and 3,485  non-residents for a total of 118,-  964. This makes an increase over  1958 of 4,672 licences or 4 percent.  owner of the hat enquired:  "Will I go round again, old  sport?"  On another occasion, the  Canon was visiting a small  lonely settlement and on landing was informed he did not  really need to worry himself  because they all had a new  and simple religion. It was  about the time Father Divine  was holding forth in the United States and his philosophy  was to pray, "Thank you, Father," and the Result desired  would be achieved. When the  minister was leaving it became somewhat rough on the  water and even though the  helpers kept pushing his boat  Qut while he started or tried  to start the outboard motor,  the waves kept pushing him  back just as fast.  His willing helpers shouted,  they hoped, their last bit of  advice to him and was to 'pray*  so to oblige he said "Thank  you. Father," pulled the cord  on the motor and off he went.  John Haddock recalled the  many services the Canon had  rendered during the years he  had been on the coast, not  only in the church but outside  as well. There were the christenings, weddings, funerals ���  and he added, he was the finest Santa* Claus that ever donned the red robes and white  whiskers.  Jim Cameron when presenting the Canon with what looked like a plank of wood, explained how 16 years ago the  Canon had built a row of  small cottages along a walk  for his friends when they desired to get away from Vancouver and have a rest. Turning  the three-foot plank over and  holding it up so it could foe  read the plank was finished on  the other side with the inscription ''Capon Greene yyfafc"  ciit into tlie woodJ before'finishing it off. This board will  mark what is now a well-defined walk in the St. Mary's Hospital   area.  Spruce bal  ruce oaisam  major species  The Canadian spruce-balsam  forest extends from Newfoundland across the provinces, the  Northwest Territories and the  Yukon for a distance of 3,000  miles. Spruce is the itiajor  species in every province, the  total area Of the nation's  spruce-balsam type being about  250 million acres. This is nearly three times the area of the  world-famous southern pine  forest yet the annual cut in  Canada's spruce-balsam forest  is only 1.7 billion cubic feet,  as compared with 3.4 billion  cubic feet in the southern pine  region. EVen by most conservative estimates, the ultimate  yjield of the Canadian spruce  forest should be 7 Vt billion  cubic feet per year, an increase  of 450 per cent over the present rate of cut and equivalent to or exceeding the harvest  of southern pine under intensive management.; It does fetot  really matter, foresters say,  whether this rough estimate is  high or low, the moral is the  compelling fact that the Canadian spruce forest is being  greatly undercut.

The  habit of observing a rest period  after the noon meal is invaluable. An alarm clock, set beside  the child's bed at eleven o'clock,  so that he knows that when the  hands are together at twelve he  can get up and play, dispenses  with his calling out, "Is my rest  hour over?"  *P T* *|C  A busy mother needs this time  when she is free from the supervision of her child's active play.

By Les Petersen  "I name thee the 'Haldis'."  The 40-ounce bottle of champagne swung in a true arc and  smashed on the white craft's  bow. Gingerly lifting to her  lips the dram of liquid remaining in the fragment of glass  still in her hand, Mrs. Andy  Atchison, wife of the new  "fcoat's owner, sipped a toast to  the vessel.  As she concluded, the dinghy  which had brought her to her  self-appointed ceremony returned her to shore. Simultaneously, George Cook, at the  wheel of his troller, carefully  took the strain on a tow-line  attached to the trailer which  Eric Inglis had carefully eased part way down the beach  the evening before, and the  Haldis took to the water.  Design of the 35-fdot laminated hull had grown from  ideas developed by three brothers: Jack, Vic and Bert  Gooldrup and friends during  the past several years. During  the five; months of construction, a moderate controversy  developed concerning the mystery ship's potential performance.  Jack Gooldrup, who with the  help of Harold Bernhof worked to put the plans into reality, maintained that the flat-  bottomed planing hull powered byv a 225 hp. Chrysler,  would do better than 20 knots.  (Some who watched the vessel  take shape agreed; others  -shook their heads.  Now' skeptics and proponents alike -were on hand to  watch the awaited induction.

Bobby Crosby  found a different fighter in  Bob Watson in this outing  Watson, a south-paw, gave the  smooth Port Mellon puncher  some real rough moments.  ��� For V those* ��� who like their  fights rough and tough, Dennis McLean and David Ennis  supplied .everything to be desired in a real rouser. Tiny  newcomer Jim Scorgie and  Ken Verhulst left everyone  limp with exhaustion from  cheering and laughing.  Pat Keogh went to the top  of the class when he survived  a first round knockdown by  Gibsons Ronnie Evans and  then came on to  even things  up by a superb boxing exhibition in the final stanza of their  battle.  Pound for. pound handsome  young Jim Bothwell is the  club's top fighter. Evidently  no one had informed Granthams' Joey Gibson of this as  he continued to give the  "North Road Dandy" a busy  evening in the Club's semifinal bout.  In the main event Rocky  Zantolas gave George Gibb a  few pounds and a long reach  which George used to some advantage, The Rock was indeed  a tired little man after exchanging three rounds of  punches with his larger opponent. Young George showed  well for his first bout.  IN   LOWE   HOME  Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Brough-  ton have taken up residence  in the Lowe home on Sechelt  Highway^ in   Gibsons.

Accompanists  were: Mrs. Don Cameron; Mrs;  Fred Shaughnessy and Mrs.  John Haddock. y  Main gifts of the evening  were presented by Mr. Jim  Cameron, president of the lo-.  cal branch of the Canadian Le>- *-������  gion,, who handled the job.  with the tact and skill appropriate to the occasion. .  First came the present of a  beautiful old-gold maple leaf"  brooch to Mrs. Greene. Then,  a handsome Rolex calendar  watch to the Canon, inscribed:  "Our sea-going parson for 48 ���  years."  Gifts to  the Canon  culminated   with   presentation   of   a  cheque for $950, on behalf of  the people of the coastal communities.  Responding    with    considerable feeling, Canon Greene expressed    himself     as     deeply  touched  by the   magnitude" oif*  the gifts showered upon himself . and. Mrs. Greene through  the  generosity  of   his  friends?  of the Coast. Then (in   order,-  one suspects, to cover the efaitf- "  tion of the moment) he launched into a series of reminiscences of  his   adventures   during  his early  ministry  as  a  'Seagoing  Parson.'  These,   related  in   his   inimitably^.^hurnorou'i^  style,' soon* had This", audience?  convulsed with laughter.  It was on this cheerful note  that the evening's events concluded with the presentation  to Frank Ball of an illuminated copy of the 'Saga,' in recognition of his eight years of service as the Canon's trusted  'side-kick' on the Mission vessels.  It was a happy evening, skilfully organized, with a somewhat intricate program conducted without a. hitch.  M. C Johnny Haddock  brought the event to a close  with a tribute to all those who  had contributed to the success  of the drive, and to the evening's entertainment, It was not  possible, he said, to recite the  names of all those who had assisted, but he felt he could not  let the evening pass without  the special thanks due to Mrs.  Don Cameron, who had been  mainly responsible for the organization of the program, and  to Mr. Trappitt, chairman of  the Testimonial Fund.  At conclusion of the program  refreshments were served, a  feature of which was a massive  cake, beautifully decorated,  donated by Mrs. Don Cameron.  PLAY OF WEEK  The series which hard-to-please  New York drama critic Brooks  Atkinson labelled the "finest  series in the field of 'IV entertainment" will soon be seen by  B.C. viewers. It is "The Play of  the Week," a weekly, two-hour  dramatic series which has set the  blase New York television seen.*  afire since it began on WNTA-  TV, an .independent station. The  39-week series has been purchas-  by KVOS-TV, and will be seen  Sunday evenings. This series appeared doomed when the station  announced it could not continue  because of a lack of sponsor interest. Aroused viewers poured  28,000 letters into the station and  an oil company came to the rescue by picking up the tab. by rif  Eighteen shooters from British Columbia have been awarded Silver Expert Shields for  firing exceptionally high  scores with .22 calibre sporting rifles, Dominion Marfes-  men   officials announced.  To qualify, each shooter, firing in the prone position, had  to place 10 shots in the bull's  eye, 100 out of a possible 100,  on each of 20 targets? In the  Bitting or kneeling position he  had to fire 98 x 100 or better  on each of 20 targets; and in  the standing position 95 x 100  on each of 20 targets.  The peninsula winners and  scores out of a possible 6,000  were:  K. Freeman, 5,982; G. Gordon, 5,941 and B. McNaughton,  5,981, all three members of  Pender Harbour Gun Club.  E.

Rayner, Pacific Flag Officer, when addressing more  than 800 Scout leaders and lay  officials at the annual banquet  in Hotel Vancouver.  He spoke on "The Navy  and Scouting, 50 years of  each" and reflected on the requirements and opportunities  both have in common. Scouting marked its 50 years in  1957 and the Royal Canadian  Navy celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Scouting, he  said, had grown from 95,000  in 1946 to 273,000 today.

"The other character-building youth organizations ��� the  Jservjice Cadet Corps, the  YMCA, the 4-H Clubs, the  Boys' Clubs and the youth  training programs in our  churches attract another 175,-  000 boys.  This leaves over a million  boys in Canada today who belong to no youth organization.  "What about this million  boys? Why aren't a large number of them in the Scout movement? I am sure it is not due  to any lack of desire amongst  the boy��. The teen-agers will  do anything if they are well  led.  "We all know that boys  want to belong to a group ���  to be one of the gang.  "Your president of the Canadian General Council Rhys  M. Sale says 'the controlling  factor in the expansion of the  Scout Movement is the supply  of trained, competent leaders.  Our need for volunteer leaders  is urgent'."  A further 8.8 percent increase in the membership of  the B. C.-Yukon Boy Scouts  Association was reported at the  annual meeting. The jump in  membership to 33,694 from  30,955 in 1959 was coupled with  the first major move to decentralize the administration of  Scouting. In the membership  total, 19,876 are Cubs, 9,988  are Scouts and 271 are Rovers.  Three regions ��� Vancouver  Metropolitan, Greater Victoria  and Kootenay-Boundary ���  have been formed to provide  better service to volunteer  leaders and the boy members.  Scout membership has  grown from 8,901 in 1945 to  25,235 in 1955. Leadership increased 10.6 percent from 1958  to 1959. It now totals 3,559.  The formation of the Regions with autonomous paid  field staff will ease the load  on the provincial headauar-  ters staff in Vancouver. Further regionalization is urged  by retiring president, M. J.  Foley.  Provincial Commissioner,  Brig. W. G. H. Roaf reported  greater numbers of leaders had  taken training in 1959 and that  this helped increase the quantity and quality of Scouting.  Still more training was needed, he said, to provide the fun  and adventure boys join Scouting for and in the end to provide the character training  which is the Movement's aim.
