Marine Men'si W*eatr  Ltd.  Phone 2 ��� Gibsons*, B.C.  chang  Certain provincial legislation is planned covering fireworks, J...-E; "Brown, inspector  of municipalities informed  Gibsons village council in a  letter read to council at Tuesday night's meeting.  The letter suggested council  should await 'the outcome of  the;1 legislation. Council wrote  seeking information covering  control of fireworks.  The problem of supplying  metered water to new business establishments on the upper side of the highway drew  varied opinions mostly rather  cautious. The problem involved future operations rather  than today's and the result of  deliberations was that establishments on the highway's upper side could be given water  providing it did not cause distribution away from the highway. Reason for the discussion is the likelihood, of the  construction of stores in the vicinity of Super-Valu premises.  Elphintsone Air Club urged  Sechelt and Gibsons councils  to support the placing of a  sign directing the way from  Sunshine Coast Highway to  the Seohelt-Elphinstone Municipal airport.  A light paving program, to  re-surface existing paved roads  and to cost about $4,000 was  discussed on a cost basis only  then left, to await decisions'  concerning paving programs  at Sechelt and Port Mellon so  all could be done in the one  period.  Accounts    totalled    $811.54  and were ordered paid, $364.80  for   general  expense, $103.30  for fire protection, $38.44 for ;  roads and $305 for floats to  "be purchased   to replace the  municipal ... floats,    becoming  quite old for general use?    :  ;, BuUding i^nruts   were   issued to ?*Etfw^:.:J^idle^'i!^:-af"  $3,500 four-r^ni? dwelling, 25  x 31 feet. Wes Hodgson obtained a permit to build a $150  garage.  The death of Sydney Startup, who was village plumbing  inspector was recorded by  council and? condolences sent  to Mrs. StartupA Mr. Startup  died suddenly in a "Vancouver  hospital.  4 alarms  Four fire alarms were sounded -from Sunday to Tuesday  afternoon and two were for  chimney fires. The first occurred Sunday about 1 p.m. when  a bush fire in vicinity of Danny's Dining Room on Sechelt  Highway came too dose to  buildings. It was soon put under  control.  Monday morning an air conditioning motor in a ventilating system at George Hill's  home sent forth billows of  smoke. Trouble was the motor had burned out. No other  damage was caused except for  a house full of smoke.  Tuesday morning a chimney  fire occurred at the home of  "Norman Coates en North Road.  Not long afterwards another  alarm sounded for a chimney  and roof fire at the Farris  home at Twin Creeks. It was  quickly got under control.  43ay of Prayer  The World Day of Prayer  will take place Fri., March 4,'  and three services will be held  in this area. There will be one  at St. Aidan's Anglican -church  Roberts Crek, another at St.  John's United church at Wilson Creek and the third at  Gibsons United   Church.  Each of these services will  commence at 2 p.m. Members  of women's organizations of  the various churches, Anglican  United and others take part in  the service which will be the  same in all churches.  Education Week on the Sunshine Coast will be .observed  in various ways in the different schools. At three of them  there .*. will be a panel discussion tc which the public are invited.  At a meeting of the Education Week committee at the  home of Mrs. C. A. Jackson  on Feb. 25, final plans for the  travelling panel were made as  follows:  March 3, Madeira Park Elementary School.  March 7, Elphinstone High  School.  March 17, Sechelt Elementary School.  Ail meetings to commence at  8 p.m.  Hew can Canadian Education hold its own in competition in the modern world?"  will be discussed by Mrs. F.  Fleming, Father O'Grady, Mr.  J3. C.

It is  an opportunity for all to learn  mdre about Education ��� the  Nation's greatest business.  draw compiai  Stoppage of the Jervis Inlet ferry for about three days  recently drew from Tony Gargrave. MLA, a letter to Henry  T. Miard,. deputy minister of  highways in Victoria.  Telegrams . were sent Mr.  Gargrave and to Black Ball  officials by t Magistrate John-  ?stpn for Sechelt's Board of  Trade complaining of the hardship it caused people who used  the Jervis Inlet ferry. Magistrate Johnston also cmplained .  of the three or four hour stoppage pf ferry between Langdale and Horseshoe Bay Thursday.  As regards the Langdale layoff, Col. George Paulin informed the magistrate the "Bainbridge had just passed a departmental marine test and  given an OKI The breakdown  followed. Black, Ball Ferries  wag unable to put the Smokwa  into service because it was  drydocked for construction of  larger lanes on its -deck. ?  ?Y?Here ii*-the letter Mr. Gar-  gravesent to Victoria.  -^������'���������������i^r.:,*-*Mr-i--*^  ceived today the following tel-.  egram from -JBitr, Andrew Johnston, Chairman of the Communications Committee, Sechelt Peninsula Board of Trade  He says, and I quote. ,���-  "Sechelt Board" of Trade  greatly disturbed over the adverse conditions created by  Black Ball Ferries failure to  provide relief service during  three day breakdown of Quil-  liyute stop This morning  breakdown of Bainbridge isolates Sechelt Peninsula stop  Please ascertain if government  can demand Black Ball Ferries  provide relief service during  breakdowns"  This is not the first time that  the Sechelt Peninsula has been  completely isolated. There  have been total breakdowns of  service on-the Howe Sound and  Jervis  Inlet.  It  seems to  me  that when a. total ..break like  this occurs somebody must be  held responsible for providing alternate service.  Passenger and expr e ss  {freight) service can be maintained by bus and passenger  boat connections on both Jervis Inlet and the Howe Sound.  Passenger boat service being  provided by the numerous,?:me-  dium-sized craft that abound  in the Vancouver area for daily  outing or water taxi serviced  The problem is that when an.  emergency arises neither bus  company, ferry company nor  government feel responsible  for 'establishing temporary services.  Powell River has access to  Vancouver by air but this can-  be eliminated should aerial  visibility be low.  In previous complete break-.  downs of transportation ... on  Howe Sound or Jervis Inlet  both bus company and ferry  company have denied responsibility for emergency measures.  This denial of responability  . isy^t^le^ahle. a$d?J;yftejel,; thjat��v  the goyernnle:^  some res��6hsbili*ty.*  I am writing to you because  I know the Minister will be  busy on the floor of the House  this afternoon, but I would  urge you to draw this to hie  attention at the first opportunity.  I would ask you to take any.  measures you. think suitable.  It must be remembered that  when service is lost on either  Jervis Inlet or the Howe Sound  Powell River is cut off from  Vancouver. The advent of the  daily ferry service has meant  that almost all other water  communication has withdrawn  from the field leaving the residents completely dependent  upon ferry service.

Sirs and Madames:  Of general interest to all of  you will be the Davis Bay  School's presntation in connection with Canada wide Education Week.  On Friday evening, Marcfe  11, at 7:30 p.m. the principal  of our school, Mrs. Seymour,  will hold a classroom teaching demonstration. She wJill  have as her pupils the students  from her Grade V classroom,  and will instruct them in a  subject at their level of intel-  Igence but will presnt these  students with a completely  new subject of which they  have had no previous instruction. This demonstration-  should be extremely interesting to those, who have perhaps  wondered just how a teacher  broaches a new subject.  Show your intere:*; in Canada's future by supporting this  and other Education Week  programs.   ���.,  Refreshments will be served^  Yours very truly,  Leslie J.

Night school work  will be displayed  The Board of School Trustees heard Helen McSavoney  report on the visit of the students to the Future Teachers'  Conference at the University  of British Columbia.  Due to illness the other students were unable to attend,  but did send written reports to  the board.

During Education Week a  display of the night school  students' work will be made  at the high schools. Mr. Dombroski hopes that such courses  as basic drafting for blueprints,  geology and shorthand will be  added for the next year's  classes.  Ail interested persons are  reminded that classes for any  subject will be taught if  enough interest is shown to  warrant the establishment of  cuch a class. It has recently  been suggested that a night  schooljband or orchestra would  be of interest to many people.  Tenders for the new school  buildings at Sechelt, Halfmoon  Bay and Elphinstone will be  received at the next meeting.  Although there are no definite plans for the building of  a school at Langdale in the  immediate future, the secretary was requested to proceed  with the purchase of the original site in that area.  Plans for the establishment  of Grade XTTT are proceeding,  and the secretary was resuest-  ed to obtain permission from  the department of education,  providing there are 12 students  enrolled.  During Education Week the  topic "How Can Canadian Ed-:  ucatiotf Hold Its Own With  the Rest" of the "World" will be.  discussed at Pender Harbour.

The commission was headed by Dr. Stewart, who is now the  "head man of the Board of Broadcast Governors.  There is no doubt that food prices would be lower if these  .services were reduced. But how many women would like to kill,  pluck and clean their own fowl? How many women would ac-  <*cept ginger snaps dished out of the old-fashioned cracker barrel?

By  JAMES  SINCLAIR  Article, 2  Fisheries scientists generally  feel that control over ithe continental shelf would provide? tlie  best zone for conservation. The  continental shelf is usually defined as that part of the sea bed  adjacent to shore and less than  100 fathoms in depth. Since there  is considerable variation in the  width of this shelf in ithe oceans  of the world, such a definition  would not be uniform. However  a 12 mile zone is a fair average,  and so was initially advocated by  many of the coastal states who  wanted! improved conservation.  Canada has for years given concrete evidence of support for a  12 mile limit in the interests of  conservation. On the east coast,  the large Canadian trawlers are  by law kept 12 miles out, so as  not tb destroy the inshore nursery  grounds with their heavy trawls.  Big trawlers of numerous nations, however, fish right up to  our three mile limit, and on occasion have had the gall to call  up the Canadian patrol boats  when they saw Canadian trawlers  fishing closer than 12 miles, and  ask that they be arrested.  ���{�� 5p ���!���  .  The 12 mile limit has been  strongly opposed by such nations  as the United Kingdom, France,  United! States, and Japan, both  on the grounds that it would exclude their fishing fleets from  areas now used, and would? also  interfere with both defence and  transport.  Adoption of a 12 mile limit  would close off any channel between nations, cr between adjacent parts of one nation, which  was less than 24 miles, wide. The  whole English Channel between  Dover and Calais, for example,  would become territorial waters  of the United"* Kingdom and  France. International law provides for ithe right. of innocent  passage of civilian vessels  through territorial waters, but  most nations prohibit the passage of foreign naval vessels, except under special agreement or  permit, and foreign fishing vessels, unless all fishing gear is  stowed below decks.  * *    *  These considerations mad#<it  unlikely that a 12 mile territorial  sea would be approved at the  1958,Geneva Conference. Canada  therefore offered a compromise  resolution povided a six mile territorial sea measured from base  lines in accord with the International Court decision, and a  further six mile zone in which  the coastal state would have exclusive fishing rights, but in  which other nations would have  all the traditional freedom of the  high seas.  This resolution was ably put  forward by Canada's spokesman,  the Hon. George Drew, Canadian  High Commissioner to the United  Kingdom. Mr. Drew's chief adviser was S. V. Ozere, assistant  deputy minister of fisheries. The  resolution secured a majority  vote, but failed to secure the two-  thirds majority necessary for  ratification.  The United States the�� put forward a resolution providing for  a six mile territorial sea, and a  second six mile zone in which  by those nations which had fished these areas for the past five  years. The effect of this resolution would be merely to move  the foreign fleets now operating  off our shores out from the present three mile limit to the six  mile limit.  * *    *  This resolution too received a  majority, buft failed to receive  the necessary two-thirds majority. The Conference then adjourned without reaching any agreement on /this key issue.  Having failed to secnue international agreement, some nations  then took independent action.  Iceland proclaimed a 12 mile  limit and attempted to arrest  British trawlers which continued  to fish inside this area. The British sent' the Fisheries Squadron  British vessels.  available  at  The Faroe Islands proclaimed  of the Royal Navy to protect th3  the U.S.-plan of six miles terri  torial waters and six miles in  which historic rights would be  recognized. Britain and other nations accepted this' declaration.  Russia proclaimed a 12 mile  territorial limit around her  coasts, and declared she would  recognize the right of any other  country to claim up to 12 miles.  (These, and other similar declarations, lead to the calling of the  1960 Geneva Conference on the  Law of the Sea.  The B.C. fishing industry  strongly supported the position,  itaken by Canada in 1958, and  was most gratified when the Hon.  Howard Green, secretary of state  for external affairs, told the  House of Commons on Jan, 15,  1960, that Canada would pursue  the same course at the 1960  Geneva Conference, irrespective  of opposition from Britain and.  the United States.  *    #    *  No country in the world has  done a better job than Canada  in maintaining her coastal fisheries. A still bejtter job of conservation can be done with fisheries control over twelve miles'  instead! of over just three miles.  Our neighbors on the west  coast ��� Japan, Russia and the  U.S.A. ��� are the world's leading  fisheries nations, all anxious to  expand their fisheries production. The rich fisheries off tha  B.C. coast are therefore most vulnerable. A change from three to  twelve miles will give added protection against increased activity  by these fleets.  Such a change will not interfere in any way with the management of the Fraser River sock  eye, and pink salmon ruris by the  International     Pacific*    Salmon  Fisheries Commission since these  runs are divided equally between  Canada and the United States. *. : .  Such a change will not effect  *. the work of the Canada ��� U.S.  International Pacific Halibut  commission, or the Canada-Japan-  U.S. International North Pacific  Fisheries commission, since the  work of both these commissions  lies outside the territorial waters  of the participating nations.  ���X. .1. sg��  'I- *i* *1*  The decision which will be  reached at Geneva will profoundly affect the future of all fishing  nations, and so the major fishing  nations are sending very strong  delegations to Geneva. The American state department has warned the U.S. fishing indutry of  the effect of these proposals on  the American fishing fleets, and  the American industry is massing  support behind the American  proposal.  The British fishing industry is  even more concerned, and this  month sent the leaders of their  industry to Canada to endeavor  to persuade Canada to support  the British position.  In view of these activities by  other nations, the Fisheries Association of B.C. has suggested)  to the minister of fisheries that  he arrange to have included as  part of the Canadian delegation  men from the east and west coast  fishing industries with a direct  and practical knowledge of how  these^proposals, and other compromise proposals sure to be raised at Geneva, will affect Canada's great fishing industry.

Born in Vancouver in 1935,.  Arthur Poison began to show  signs of musical aptitude at  the age of four, but like most  young children he; hated to  practise. It was not until the  age pf 14, when he began, to  study with the late Gregori  Garbovitsky, that the violin  acquired a new meaning for  him.  Within six. months' of the  day he started taking lessons  with Garbovitsky, Arthur Pol-  son gave his .first solo recital  in Vncouver.

e Egmont
A park and. roac aevelop-
ment was urged for the Skoo-
kum Chuck at :Egmont, on the
mouth of the Sechelt Inlet,
Thursday on the floor of the
legislature. Tony Gargrave,
MLA, urged the minister of
recreation, Mr. Westwood and
the minister of highways, Mr
Gaglardi, to -co-operate in developing the Skookum Chuck
as a major tourist attraction.
The local member said that it
is possible to view an 11 foot
tidal wave at the mouth of Se-
>chet Inlet during the high
tide changes. "If this natural
phenomenon was developed it
would draw people from all
over British Columbia," he;
Mr. Gargrave reminded the
government that local truckers want an opportunity to bid
on local government work.
"There is no point in bringing in outside trucks when local truck owners have no work
to do," he said.
During the debate, provincial medical aid for dependents
of those on veterans allowances .was advocated. If these
people were on the old-age
pension they would be eligible
for these provincial benefits,
he told the legislature.
Ferry problems, industrial
odors from pulp mills, adequate liquor outlets in smaller
communities were also discussed by Mr. Gargrave.
■Tsny -Gar*graw,*W.lL.A'P^ ~
Mr. Ray "Williston, minister
of lands and forests, made vhis
usual competent address to
the legislature last week. He
explained to the members how
he was trying to interest- a
pulp company in setting up a
pulp mill in the interior to
manufacture pulp solely from
vaste wood chips. The minister estimates that 35% of
log volume is useable waste
ihat can be used for pulp production.
He estimated that waste
wood chips could he produced
and transported to a pulp mill
from a lOO-mile radius for
S9.70 per unit. At present a
unit of wood chips is worth
$17 per unit at a similar type
pulp mill in Alberta. It is estimated that there are enough
waste wood material within
100 miles of Prince George to
manufacture 2,000 tons - of
pulp a day. This production
can be obtained without utilizing and hew forest resource.
. The government still believes that there is going to be
an increasing demand for pulp
and paper in the future. There
is a close relationship between
a rise in the world's "standard
of living and pulp and paper
The minister reminded us of
a report that Judge Morrow is
preparing concerning bidding
on Crown timber in public
working circles. Pubic work-
ig circles are now -called sustained  yield   units  and   there
timber available . each year
are 64 of them; in British Columbia. Since the amount of
from a sustained yield unit is
limited, bidding is sometimes
aggressive and owners of For-
ci-it Management Licences have
been known to enter the bidding and squeeze small local
operators out.
There is also the question of
nuisance bidding in which unpleasant characters will threaten to bid against a small operator and force the price of
the timber sale up unless he is
paid off. Let us hope that
Judge Morrow has a solution
to some of these problems.
The statistical measuring of
forest fires and the damage
they do has been improved in
recent years? The causes of fire
occurrences in order of magnitude are: railways,, range-clearing fires; industrial, fires,
campers, smokers, and: lightning. However, the frequency
4?;?¥r??*^ M^i M^&!;1960
of occurrence, rdoesn't (meees-
sarily mean that a; particular
type : of fire causes  the naost
-damage. Railway fires are
most frequent but cost little
to put out and cause little
damage. The damage that
range-clearing fires do is extensive and expensive and
costly to fight.
Last year was a good year
for seed cones required for reforestation projects. You might
be interested in knowing that
there are 32,000 individual
seedlings in one pound of
Douglas fir seeds.
As a look into the future
the minister forecast the following future technological
advances in logging. More portable spar trees, lighter weight
trucks which carry heavier
loads, air operated tongs for
the handling of logs, lighter
weight tractors to log second
' growth timber, barkers operating right in the woods, greater
use of electronics and radio
and the use of gas turbine helicopters in logging  operations.

South African Minister of  Mines Jen de Klerk attended  the white service.  As an old miner I have been  present at all too many scenes  of mine disasters.

Futhermore, knowing these  people by living among them  I realize that the gradations  to good or bad are not the  particular prerogative of any  one particular race, creed or  ���color. The golden rule is espoused but not necessarily  practiced any more fervently  by black or white.  I realize that custom and  tradition is hard to change,  but my biggest trouble is try-,  ing to reconcile the position  of the church member disdaining to hold a joint funeral  service  following   a   disaster..  Should there be some place  as heaven or hell to dwell in  following our stay here t>n  earth, are we to imagine that  racial segregation will be practiced there?  What monumental hypocrisy  for church and non-church attendants alike to repeat the  age old slogan ''Peace on earth,  goodwill to men" and simultaneously practice discrimination and race prejudice,    r  DAVE REES  PR  man  pleads  for truckers  Harold Hunter of Powell River, speaking on behalf of  truckers, some 36 operators  using 70 trucks, urged before  the Roa<j Users commission  sitting in the Vancouver Public Library on Feb. 25 that  the new schedule of truck licenses be reconsidered.  Mr. Hunter's argument was  that trucking was vital to our  economy, and that rail and water competition assured competitive costs, also helped providing a cheap and flexible  mode of transportation and unduly high rates would deny  many people of certain necessities.  Mr. Hunter argued that  most road damage was caused  by excessive braking and he  thought a speed regulation on  havy loads might be a partial  answer. He urged that a motor  fuel tax increase would be  more appropriate and would  -be'paid by all-^who use the  roads.  A MISTAKE CORRECTED  Following Cpl. Ruggies' contention in a letter to Gibsons  Board of Trade that fireworks  were banned at Port Mellon,  phone calls to the Coast News  and to Cpl. Ruggies of the  RCMP from Port Mellon definitely exploded that idea.  Cpl. Ruggies admits he received misinformation from some  source and has corrected his  ideas on that subject as far  as  Port Mellon is   concerned.

On a third occasion  he rallied his battalion in a  key attack. He was again  wounded and lost his right  leg. For his leadership and gal-  antry in this engagement, he  was awarded the bar to his  Military Cross and also the  French Legion of Honor.  During the Second World  War, he commanded the Quebec Military district. Later he  served in London as Canadian  representative to General  Charles de Gaulle's French  Committee of Liberation.

Furthermore, in ten years'  time, Canada's annual birthrate  is likely to be 600,000, so that  the wide and varied demands  created by the "baby boom" of  the '50's may be only a foretaste  of what is- to come.  Dealing with likely population  trends in the decade ahead, the  bank says there is every reaso.i  to expect fertility to remain high  and mortality to remain low, with  immigration at least equalling  the relatively small figures of  the last two years.  But,  just as  important as the  total   population   figure   is   tho  likely composition of the population by age groups,- the B of M  adds.  For  "bulges"   in  the   age,  pyramid have important new im-"  plications   with   the  passage  of  time, producing significant shifts,  in the pattern of consumption.   ;'  Specifically, this is likely to:  mean there will be important deferences in the composition of,  Canada's population by age  groups between the"- next few  years and the later part of the ,  decade, the  review forecasts.  "Briefly/' it . continues, "'the  early 1960's will see the large  numbers of those barn in the immediate postwar years reaching  their teens. But reflecting the  low birth rates in the depressed  years of the mid-1930's, relatively  few are now marrying and will  be starting families in the hear  future..  "In strong contrast, as the decade moves towards its close the  teenagers of the early 1960's- will  become young adults, attending  university, taking jobs and forming families; their numbers and  those of their children will in,  consequence be much larger than  than is the case now, while the  Printed Pattern  Soft, feminine lines ��� a stylo  that looks beautiful in any fabric,  on most occasions.

Of those over 30, the bank foresees only minor changes in the  30-45 age group. On the other  hand, the number of people between 45 and retirement is likely  to increase rapidly and steadily  in the ten years ahead, so that  by 1970 there will be nearly 4,-  000.000 in these age groups, versus about 3,000,000 now.  Over the full decade, Canada  can be expected to have about  3,000,000 more people under 3U  the numbers in the same age  brackets today."  Summarizing, the review says,  "planners can safely count on  an increase at a rate rough'y  comparable to that of the 1950's.  Moreover, the age structure reveals two particularly significant  trends. The first, of interest to  those who supply the various  needs of the student and home-  maker, is that young people under 30 will constitute a rising  proportion of ths population. The  second, of interest to those who  cater to a quite different range  of tastes, is that the midd'e ag^r]  will also, perhaps surprisingly,  increase in numbers more rapidly than the population as- a  whole."  ice.

Yet I am wondering how much  by the Provincial government  tax or profit revenue is received  ifrom. the Power Commission.  Tax revenue is required by all  government if they are to function properly. Such tax revenues  mostly come from profitable enterprises. ;.��� The larger firms invariably pay higher and greater1  taxes.  So long as the people can legislate against unreasonable and ,  exorbitant charges, there is little*  to fear from;private enterprise.  We are quite able to do so under  our present system.  Should hydro power be reduced in price through public ownership, those using the. most would  prpfit the most, and they are the  heayy industries utilizing ou>r  natural resources. A taxable profit on the power supplied vo  them is good'business and helps  provide the funds that pay some  three-fourths    of   our    hospital  costs, home-owner grants, school  grants, etc., as well as roads and  bridges.  The matter of Peace vs. Columbia is in part a matter 'of  control. Whereas the Province of  B.C. has full'control of the Peace;  both our Federal government and  the U.S. are involved with B.C.  oh the Columbia.  And finally, our northern interior is entitled to a chance for  development. "The building of the  Peace dam and its hydtro power  available in conjunction with the  petro-chemical resources create  an enticing situation. The development'of the Peace certainly  will not be at 'any' cost, only at  reasonable cost to private enterprise, that is subject to taxation.

Mr. Fred Fletcher was  re-elected by acclamation as  secretary.  Over 60 people attended the  meeting to hear D. E. Findlay-  son, district engineer of the  provincial department of highways talk on the work of his  department as it affects the  individual when subdividing  cr constructing access and private roads. At the conclusion  several questions regarding  roads throughout the district  were asked.  Mr. Findlayson was unable  to predict what new construction would be undertaken in  the district because the estimates for his department .were  not yet passed by the legislature.  New business being undertaken by the board included  an effort to have the herring  fishing boundaries at the  mouth of Pender Harbour extended, application to the at-  troney general for a resident  police officer at Pender Harbour, and a study of the feasibility of having a portion of  the Karen Range set aside as  a water  shed for the district  Mr a^  7*-  ���fbr 3utur& ui��|. ����.

The Peninsula Club  already has drawn a large following as several Port Mellon  and Gibsons people were  among the large  crowd.  There is no reason why the  community of Sechelt could  not have a club equal to that  of the Peninsula. Probably  their biggest problem at the  moment is locating a gym.  Two clubs on the Sunshine  Coast would create a natural  rivalry plus uncovering new  talent.  Although it is getting late  in the season the Kinsmen will  undoubtedly be looking ahead  to an early start next fall. The  Peninsula club has indicated it  will aid, if necessary, in the  formation  of such a venture.  Any Sechelt boys who can  find transportation are welcome to attend workouts for  the rest of this season at the  Port Mellon Community Hall  Thursday nights.  A pair of newcomers, Leroy  Hartley and Allen Cook kicked off Friday's card and set  the theme of things to come  with a rousing, ac,tion-��illed  three rounds.
