Array DANNY'S  rJC'^Sf  DINING ROOM  Phone GIBSONS 140  ^H^sSkk  JUST FINE FOOD  Provincial Library,  Victoria, B, c.  SERVING THE GROWING SUNSHINE COAST  Published in Gibsons, B. C.,Volume   14,  Number  33,   August 18, 1960.  7c per copy  A Complete Line  of Men's Clothing  Marine Men's Wear  Ltc.  Phone 2 ��� Gibsons,  B.C.  explained  As this paper went to press  last   issue   a    situation   arose  ���which placed the editor in an  . awkward position.  The Liberal party held a  nomination convention last  Saturday Aug. 6 in. Gibsons  and Mr. Cruice gave it full  coverage. The Social Crediters  also had a nomination convention on the same night at Sechelt but It was not announced  to the public and  Mr. Cruice  "knew nothing of it.  Social Credit conventions  are attended by paid up members of the Social Credit League and only accredited delegates are entitled to vote* for  the selction of a  candidate.  These accredited delegates  are elected by the local Social  Credit groups in the various  towns and villages throughout  the constituency on a pro-rata  basis. This is not the only function of these groups.  It is their responsibility during the period between elections, to advise and recommend  the needs and desires of their  community thus keeping the  individual constantly in touch  with the government and vice-  versa.  Therefore it is net sufficent  that a person support the So-  cre'ds with his vote, tout he  should be ready and willing to  join the group in his area in  order to maintain the democratic function of government.  v���'.*'���'    Vincent H.

Exhibits will*  then be thrown open for pub-|  lie inspection.  A   considerable   amount   of  work has gone into getting ey-  erything ready for this year's  exhibition in spite of the hot  weather which has somewhat  curtailed field exhibits. Junior  exhibits are reported to be in  usual quantity and it is likely  competition there will' be on  thG keen side.  So~ the dance enthusiasts  will not be uninformed about  the Saturday night dance the  starting time will be 10 p.m.  and not 9 p.m. This was a decision of the committee at one  of it*; recent meetings because  it was maintained that the 9  p.m. hour was a bit on the  early side for many who took  part in the operation of the  fair. Dancing will continue until 1 a.m.  The usual Saturday afternoon parade led by Piper Eric  Thomson will take place in  vicinity   of   the   School   hall.  This is the event youngsters  look forward to when they  come with decorated bikes,  fancy and comic dress and pets  galore. There will be judging  of the various categories in  the youngsters parade and cash  prizes will toe awarded. Piper  Thomson will perform in his  usual distinctive manner and  .will head the parade from  North Road into the School  driveway.  The     commercial     exhibits  this year are expected to be  better than ever. There will  be a good B. C. Electric exhibit, an Esso Heating display  with local tie-ins, Gordon and  Kennett, Canadian Legion, Gib  sens Area Fire Services with  others expected to show up at  the last minute. There will be  exhibits in the School Hall,  Parish Hall and in the Elementary school as well this  year. So all in all it looks like  a  good fair.

I was about two  miles off shore. Time, midnight. I saw as it were over  Roberts Creek a light. This  light was larger than any on  the ground or boat and was  far larger than any star I have  ever seen, even on the desert,  the Mojave.  As the taxi drove me home  I could see the same light, but  said nothing to the driver as  I did not wish to distract his  attention. It is rather funny.  During the last war I reported  to the authorities .something  that came down in the same  area. This "something" looked  like a: haystack on fire, falling  to earth. No doubt a Jap fire  balloon. Possibly this sort of  thing will be as 'common as  coughdrops' shortly.  Edward J.

Phil Gaglardi  to visit the Sunshine Coast and  discuss at a public meeting the  situation as it concerns Black  Ball Ferries and the highway  frcm Squamish.  Vince Bracewell, Social Credit candidate for Mackenzie  riding speaking at a political  meeting Tuesday night in the  Legion hall said he would ask  Mr. Gaglardi to come over to  the Sunshine Coast for a public meeting.  The issue arose after the  regular speeches by Hon. E. C.  Westwood, minister of conservation and recreation and Mr.  Bracewell when question?  were allowed  from the  floor.  These questions quickly  struck at the root of the dissatisfaction in many people's  minds concerning the ferry  service and the lack of another outlet, the road to Squamish. On the. other hand the  meeting before it wound up  gave another point of view  when some speakers from the  floor found; that after all  Black Ball service was riot as  terrible as some made out it  was.  To sort cf crystallize the  feeling Mr. Bracewell decided  to call on Mr. Gaglardi to appear. "You get the people and  I'll get Mr. Gaglardi," Mr.  Bracewell said.  The Coast News expects to  publish, next week a resume of  the speeches made by Mr.  Westwood and Mr. Bracewell.  About 60 persons attended the  meeting.

Crowds line Half moon Bay shore for regatta  Fire fighters from this area  accompanied by Forestry  branch officials and the RCMP  descended on Gambier Island's  Long Bay area Saturday afternoon when a fire from a house  spread into the bush.  The house destroyed belonged to Joseph Mitchell and it  was believed to have been  caused by a faulty chimney.  The frame home valued at  about $6,000 was totally destroyed with contents. The  ground fire spread over an  area of about 10 acres.  Lifting of the general forest closure over five major  zenes of the Vancouver forest  district is announced by R. G.  McKee, deputy minister of  forests.  At the same time, campfire  permits in the district, which  were suspended in certain  areas on July 20, have been reinstated.  "The considerable increase  in humidity, coupled with a  favorable weather outlook and  a relatively low incidence of  new fires in the district over  the past few days have "combined to make this action possible," Mr.   McKee stated.  By PAT WELSH  Morning clouds rolled away  to give place to brilliant sunshine Sat. Aug. 13 when the  Redroofs Beach and Country  Club held its sixth annual regatta.  Crowds of spectators lined  the foreshore in front of the  T. Caimpbell and H. Merrilees  home,' the colorful beach apparel: worn by the ladies, moppets and men showed to advantage in the bright sunshine.  On the patio Mrs. Campbell  and Mrs. Merrilees were kept  busy serving tea and ice cream  The hard working committee had put out floats and roped off a course. First the.decorated boats sailed past the reviewing stand. Wyriken, Blyn-  ken and Nod had on its deep  blue sail a silver sliver of new  moon and a sprinkling of silver stars. Two small boys,  Bruce and Kippy Caple clad  in slumber suits and night  caps holding candles in candle  holders stood, one in the bow,  the other by the mast, Nod,  their Dad, nodded in the stern.  The Aquadades of Castaway  were a boat load  of   bathing  bieauties captained by Robbie  MacPherson. Chris Dalton's  boat load of cave men were  realistic clad in gunny sacking  and with wild mops of hair,  brandishing clubs and holding  a long haired woman by the  hair they lived up to the caption "Redroofs, 3,000 B.C."  There was a lone Eskimo  who must have been sweltering beneath his fur trimmed  parka, but he paddled his kayak right along. Ruth Lefeaux  and Jennefer Dean were pirates with Jet the dog as figure  head, at the mast a flag with  skull and cross bones. A boat  laden with pretty girls tabbed  The Plain Janes cruised by,  and not a plain one among  them. Tiny Robbie Pearson  with Tove Hansen as crew  towed their life saving raft behind them and managed their  boat in great style.  H. Merrilees fire boat gay  with bunting and manned by  a crew of young lads had a  grand time pumping jets of  salt water in every direction.  These are but a few of the  many entries.  Next came aquatic^ sports.  The youngsters revelled in the  . fun and made a good showing,  proud parents and friends  cheering them on to victory.  Husbands and wives raced  each other and pulled in the  row boat races, some being a  little late in starting, but all  had fun. In the underwater  swimming the girls had it all  over the boys. Log rolling was  popular with both sexes.  WINNERS  Decorated boats: First,  Bruce and Kippy Caple, Wyn-  ken, Blynken and Nod; second  Robbie Pearson and Tove Hansen.

Gargr  ave speaks  The CCF opened its campaign on the Sechelt Peninsula Monday evening when the  candidate Tony Gargraye  spoke to a meeting at the Sechelt Indian Village.  Mr. Bill Wilson was chairman and the speaker was introduced by Mrs. Ernie Joe.  Mr. Charlie Craigan, the new  chief, was in attendance. Mr.  Gargrave told the meeting that  the native Indians in B. C.  were entitled to equality in  education, liquor privileges  and job opportunities.  Medical care  step taken  The following statement  was made by Hon. Eric Martin  at a meetng at Lillooet Social  Credit nominating convention  August 12:  "The provincial Social Credit government supports the  principle of a medical care  program. Steps have already  been taken to secure the early  start of such, coverage through  representations made to the  federal   government    advocat-  ing,medical^^ a&r^^r^ylslph�� ,f��r  the'-"people "of"British 'Columbia under the health insurance  agreement between the pro-  . vinces and the government of  Canada.  "The provincial government  has urged the federal government to facilitate the establishment of this program by sharing the costs on the same basis'  as the hospital insurance program is carried out. We have  recommended that the program be an all-inclusive national health program includr  ing besides hospital insurance,  medical care service, homc  nursing service, laboratory and  X-ray diagnostic service, dental care for children), certain  drugs, prescriptions, artificial  limbs and appliances.  "It is the view of this government that the time is rapidly approaching when the  people of Canada must be insured against the high cost of  illness. This province has repeatedly presented its program for an all - inclusive  health program to the federal  government.  "At all times, this government has stood for the early  start of medical care coverage  based fundamentally upon the  dr-ctor-patient relationship and  the exercise of free choice  which now exists.  "The medical care program  which will be furthered by this  government will ensure that  all people, irrespective of race,  creed, or financial abilities,  shall enjoy the benefits of such  a program, which will insure  medical attention without fear  of the costs involved.  INCORRECT GROUP  Last week's edition erroneously described Vince Brace-  well as president of Hopkins  Landing Community Group.  This should have read president of the Granthams-Hopkins  Social  Credit Group.  PHOTO BY WRAY  Last week's page one picture of the Unknak beached  at Sechelt was taken by Bob  Wray, who has opened the  Gulf Photo service  in Sechelt  O. A. P.

SORRY,  FOLKS  After planning for a comfortable eight page paper and  passing tbe point of no return  as regards printing it, the  boom went out and a flood of  advertising crossed the counter. That is why a considerable amount of news will have  tc wait until next week. 2    Coast News, Aug. 18, 1960.  f OOR BUHERFIYT  OSt ��  Published every Thursday by Sechelt Peninsula News Ltd.,  _ O.

It is usual for individuals to give credit where credit is due.  Business houses usually follow the same procedure. But when  it comes to politics a different set of morals is involved.  That is why William H. Payne, MP, Coast-Capilano Conservative, has flooded the mails with a letter and sheet of tablated)  figures so people of his constituency can see what the federal  government is spending in this province,  The totals show the federal government in the 1956-7 year  spent $58,426,000 in unconditional grant�� and $17,491,000 in  conditional and shared cost grants, The total set aside for the  1960-1 year is $74,765,000 and $61,936,000. Totals for the two  years are $75,917,000 and $136,701,000 respectively.  There is much to be said on both, sides. For years the lack  of information turned out by the federal government covering  amounts spent in the provinces has been noticeable. This has allowed provinces to bury the fact the federal government was  spending millions of dollars in this manner. Mr. Payne has done  something which should have been done long ago.  Perusal of provincial cabinet speeches and other documents  reveals the federal government does not get the break it deserves on the amount of cash is spends in each province.  My little pond  Our garrulous commies  The Communist Party of Canada, B. C. Provincial committee, in a recent press release attacking Premier Bennett had  this to say:  "The Social Credit government is an accomplice of the federal Tories in the conspiracy which surrenders our fate to the  U. S. and its provocative 'brink of war' policies, which in turn  helps to impoverish the people by squandering our wealth on  war preparations."  This mouthful contains six subjects all woven into one argument. There is also the other side to the argument which contains one subject only ��� policies of the Kremin. It might not  be Communistic cricket to suggest the B. C. commies work on  the Kremlin to change its imperialistic ideas. It would leave  them with nothing to talk about.  Watch those remarks!  It is often forgotten that statements made at a meeting of  the Board of Trade or City Council, for instance, are public utterances and anyone who makes such a statement or remark  should not be surprised if it appears in print.  Too many people think that the public should read only  about the "nice" things which are said at such meetings and that  critical statements about people and things should be left unwritten.  This of course is a complete negation of the functions of a  newspaper.  Of course there are times when public officials might better  leave unsaid the things they say. But once said in open forum,  they can hardly complain if they appear in a newspaper story.  ��� Revelstoke Review  (By A. J. C.)  At the beginning of July the  water in my little pond was four  feet deep and there was hope  that with the aid of a few timely  showers it would serve the place  through the summer ��� but at  months  end it had disappeared.  The shade of willow and alders  around it had given protection  from the sun but not from the  strong, dry wind that sucked the  water up and ran off with it.  How popular that shady little retreat "is with all my fellow inhabitants was shown very plainly, for, until the last puddle dried  liie mud showed a record of  every creature on the place that  wears feathers or fur or hair,  the tracks being as close-set as  words on printed page.  *    *    *  Passing nearby in the dusk of  evening I found a fine buck  Wacktail ��� our own "Cervus  columbianus" ��� drinking at the  pond. He was "having one cm.  me" and I hope that "The stag  at eve had drunk his fill," though  his loud snort indicated disgust  at  being  disturbed.  He   cleared  picked and shovelled my way  down to prehistory! The elevation of this "dig" is approximately 200 feet above present sea-  level.  When the October rains came  on I was greatly pleased to find  a fine wild duck exploring my  pond ��� with the air of a rightful proprietor ��� on the first  morning that it could be called  full. That one must have told  others for there were many visits  later on and as the surrounding  cover grew and screened the pond  it became a secluded refuge  against storms ��� and shotguns.  We do not interpret "dominion  over all things" as the right to  kill everything that moves, and  duc^s, unmolested, soon lose  their fear of harm. I have dipped  a nail of water from my pond  without disturbing the ducks  that were in possesion at the  time.  *    *    *  And since the water always  lasts long enough to transform  eggs ��� to tadpoles ��� to frogs I  found that I had acquired my  own private orchestra. There  is  wire ��ence in good    J_.ime at year when frogs win  ground for a take-off having foil-  Three good reasons  The state of affairs today need renewing, says a Royal Bank  of Canada Report dealing with our natural resources. In a subject so old, so vast, and so continually new, it seems impossible to keep science and social life apart. In fact, we should not  try to do so. Continuance of our human society depends upon  our ability to heed the science of the resit of nature, and live  within its bounds.  There are at least three good reasons for surveying the presr  ent state of affairs and learning about our natural environment:  (1) Our advancing technology uses up resources in increasing'  quantity; (2) our increased population puts annually greater  pressure upon our living space; (3) our continued existence depends upon our keeping our natural environment productive of  the essentials of life.  It is encouraging that a plan to call all Canadian resource  agencies together next year to draft a "Resources for Tomorrow" program is underway. ��� Bill Myring.

Fishery biology chair  Four B.C. fishing companies  have combined to provide funds  for the establishment of a chair  in fisheries biology in the Institute of Fisheries at the University  of British  Columbia.  President N. A. M. MacKenzie  announced the establishment of  the dfiair also the appointment  of Dr. Norman J. Wilimovsky,  chief of marine fisheries for the  State of Alaska as associate professor in the department of  zoology and the Institute of Fisheries.  The four companies which  have agreed to support the chair  with an annual grant are B.C.  Packers Ltd., Canadian Fishing  Co. Ltd., Nelson Brothers Fisheries Lta., and Anglo-British Columbia Packing Ltd.  Professor P. A. Larkin, director of UBC's Institute of Fisheries, said Dr. Wilimovslcy would  carry out research for the development of better techniques  for prediction and regulation, of  commercial fisheries so that  maximum yields consistent with  conservation can be achieved.  ed the first attempt. There is  power and to spare in those  haunches!  In the fourteen years since I  dug that hole it has held water  right through once only, and that  was not a disappointing summer  either for holdiday folks or  farmers, it happened that showers came just as needed, with  most enjoyable weather in between.  I had great hopes and plans  for that^ pond when I was free  to begin digging late in one September. There is a long list of  lovely aquatic and semi-aquatic  plants and I meant to grow every  one of them. And fish! of course,  there are .many kinds of fish  that fhrive in ponds ��� all of  which lent force!, to the stroke  of the pick against touigh glacial  boulder ��� clay that would baffle a bulldozer without the use  of explosives.  *    *    *l  Jt was a beginning only; T  meant to dig on each year as  other work permitted until there  sfiould be a pond of an area suitable for a farm home. But it  dried up the first summer and  my ^project was a failure. The  African "mudfish that can survive six months of alternate wet  and dry might do in my pond but  "fried mudfish" does not sound  aljluring!  However, I have found more  than once that when a project  fails of its main purpose unexpected rewards show up to please  and interest one ��� "frings benefits" in todays words. Having  slugged my way down through  four feet of hard clay I came to  a layer that was rich in impressions of marine shellfish, some  of them so perfect that a cast of  the formen* shell could have been  made, with others fragmentary. .  I ^et the best aside and later  made a selection from them that  went to the UBC where the biologists kindly classified them  for me.    _  They were all of species that  still exist though some are not  now found locally, and their age  was stated as 8,000 years ��� early  post-glaciai, that would be. I had:  STOP ON A DIME?  If you think you can stop your  car "on a dime," you're asking  for trouble, warns the B.C. Automobile Association.

They are accepted, and legitimate  union affairs are recognized to be the  business of members and their officers.  But there is a large scale doubt ���  amongst unionists, too���-that union  affairs and party politics should be  mixed. The. heads of United States  ��� international unions strongly advise  against it. They say union interests  suffer when unions go into politics.  In British Columbia, certain union leaders have virtually taken over the Socialist CCF party. Today no one knows  what is done for union advantage and  what Is for political propaganda effect.  Union statements formerly taken at  face value are now suspect by members and the public alike.  These paid union officers reach to  add vast political strength to the  money, jobs and power they already  control.  As neither union interest nor public interest is served by mixing unionism  and politics, British Columbians will  create more confidence and employment in B.C. by clearly rejecting state  Socialism and the CCF-union tie-up at  the polls.

But we have  so little room for play material  for offr boy!" Mrs. Stuart sighed.  "But a small chile must hayo  something tojrfay with or he will  wander off!" her friend replied.  "Our sand box is small, but the  children have a heap of fun in  it!"  **  Every  child  is   different,   the  size of a backyard, the location  and climate vary. But if parents  have money for only one piece of  play   equipment,   a   sandbox   is  usually  a good choice. Keep  it  filled with clean sand with sufficient "(Jigging utensils within a  child's   reach.  A sand-pile   is  a  never   failing   source   of   enjoyment and _a well-built box will  not wear but or fall apart. Almost any father who is handy at  tools can get specifications and  construct one. A large box can  be converted into a sand container with small seats and an easily  adjusted   cover to keep out the  rain,  as   well  as   stray  animals  who might visit it at night.  ��� Simple   sand   playthings,   shovels, wooden spoons, old sifters  or cooking equipment such as a  funnel or sieve, and a can with  holes   punched   in   the   bottom,  should all be kept in a box or  on a shelf near by. It is confusing for a small child to sit down  in a sandbox amidst a clutter of  yesterday's toys. It is good training for small children to be encouraged to put away their play  things  at the end of play time.  Tie  sandbox should be  placed,  if possible, where it will be in  the shade during the hot hours  in   the   late  nforning, but  will  have sunshine either early or late  in the day.  An adjustable awning shade  is very useful.  *    * :������ *..,  An old fashioned hammock  and a "Sturdy swing, or a teeter-  totter are all grand fun. So is a  jungle gym, which is a simply  constructed climbing _ apparatus  with four posts and efgftt rounded cross bars forming a sort of  dbuBieHgrates. It is a marvellous  place to climb and balance! A  child can scramble up it shortly  after "he" starts to walk. Later  a small ladder at one end and a  slide at the other greatly increases its fun possibilities. Even a  short home-made ladder is a  splendid piece of outdoor equipment. Sometimes a child will  tumble a short distance. But  small children have a knack of  "falling   limply"   and    avoiding  add rocks and cement to make  them firm. A strong cross bar  can form the support for one cr  two swings.  Perhaps a parent migh'c consider a small play-house, something only for little girls.- But  little boys soon claim it as a  "club-house" for their gang. Occasionally, three or four children  can have a picnic supper all by  themselves in the play-house as  a special treat.  To a small girl, a playhouse is  a place__of enchantment where  She can^'keep house" sweeping,  dusting, setting the table, arranging the furniture, just like  motlTer. She loves to have a place  in it for jier toy dishes, for for  her dolly and the dolly's clothes.  In quite a different way from her  brother, she considers a playhouse one of the best things a.  child can own.

EDWARD  KEMP)  The first definite impressions  of my visit, to England after an  absence of 34 years, came on the  railway journey from Liverpool  to London. It soon became evident by the passing scene, that  there was much activity along  the rigjht of way; gangs of workmen were employed on widening  tracks, dismantling old buildings  and erecting new ones. This  scene was repeated so often during the four hours journey as to  attract attention.  Coincident with the outward  scene, was the conversation I had  with my companions on the  journey, a middle aged man and  wife, with three children of  school age, who were returning  to the old land after nearly five  years in Eastern Canada. The  man told me that although  wages were good, he had only  been able to secure intermittent  employment and consequently  could never really settle down;  so they were returning to England, where he was assured of a  permanent job. When I expressed surprise, he replied "I'm not  the only one; there was quite a  company on board ship returning  disappointed with their venture  to Canada."  In London I stayed with my  nephew and his wife at Wembley  in the N.W- Suburbs; of Stadium  fame, where the Gup Tie football games are played, and other  sports events of national interest. It is also becoming quite an  industrial centre, although this  is not permitted to overlap on  the residential area. On the main  roads the traffic is incessant during the day, right up to the heart  of thie City.  ���1*     -     ��JU <u  n*        ��t* *r��  I "believe a book has recently  been published entitled "The Affluent State;" and as it appears  to me that certainly applies to  Greater London and beyond. The  great shopping centres like Oxford St. and Regent St. are crammed with buyers, many obviously  overseas visitors, as can be seen  by their manner of dress, and  sometimes by their complexion.  It certainly looks as if the tradesmen "never had it so ~s��od."  I did not confine my observations to the streets and stores-  for instance, on Whit Monday  holiday, I went to one of the well  known race meetings, at Hurst  Park, near Hampton Court. This  was quite a new experience for  me, and most enlightening. The  day was ideal; the grounds were  crowded; the betting stands,  lunch rooms and refreshment  bars, doing a roaring business,  but there was no disorder or  ribajdry. It was more like a pageant, colorful and dramatic, a  good humored company of many  folks enjoying themselves in the  give and take of a sporting  event. I stayed till the grounds  were almost emptied and no distressing sight met my eyes. I expected a riot, but enjoyed a panorama.  On two occasions I walked the  city and west end streets, as I  did ..when a junior .clerk in the  accountant gerteral's dept. of ths  G.P.O- Taking St. Pauls as point  of departure. I roamed west via  -I.udgate Hill, Fleet Street,  Strand. Charm? Cross, "Yafalgaf  Square; and although there was  rrvrich evidence of war damaee  and many new imoosing buildings   and   others   in process of  erection, the old historic landmarks were still to be seen. Fleet  Street, the newspaper and periodical centre, seemed to me to be  just as of yore, there are improved premises, but the social atmosphere of the crowded pavei  merits, with the bustle of rush'  business still prevails.  One constantly recurring sight  amused me greatly, the bowler  hat, and the dark colored close  fitted suit, usually with striped  trousers and always a furled umbrella used as a walking stick.  These are apparently sti^l the  conventional attire of many office clerks and business men.  Often they walk in pairs, in animated conversation, with the umbrella in the right hand, used  somewhat as a propeller, swiftly,  as it were, pushing the ground  backwards. Some times the umbrella is carried with it's semicircle handle hanging from the  lower part of the left arm held  horizontally. Some walk jauntilly  and care free and others with a  stately stride.  *��* *f> j__t��  I macle these observations mostly while resting for an hour or  two on a seat in St. James' Park.  The passers by are many and  varied and almost always interesting. Now and again there are  the nurse maids pushing the baby  carriages; the old folks enjoying  a snooze; the man and maid duo;  people in uniform, but on this  particular occasion a "down and  out" was not to be seen. On the  same walking tour, I had a look  at the Houses of Pariament and  visited Westminster Abbey,  where an extensive renovation  is being given to the interior. .  The stone facings are being cleaned, which certainly gives the old  building a new and improved  look. I passed by Buckingham  Palace on the other side, as none  of the dwellers therein appeared  to wave a welcome from the balcony. The usual motley company  were idling outside the gates,  evidently expecting "something .  or somebody to turn up."  Then I journeyed east from St.  Pauls by way of Cheapside.  through the Bank-Mansion House-  Royal Exchange intersection,  Leadenhall St. Aldgate, where  I passed tlie city boundary into  the eastend. Now I was coming  home to the place of my birth  and youth ��� through White-  oKapel and Mile End to Stepney  Green. �� ���  ���    *    *    *  The "block of houses belonging  to  my father and  pis brothers'  in one, of which I was bom, was  obliterated in the last war with  many   others   in  that near  the  docks area. As it happened, about  .,  a  100 yards away on the other  side of the Green, the business  premises of Kemp & Sons was   -.  intact and  looked to me much  the same as of Old. Of'course, I   ;!  _mmBmeaa^mmmawmasawmma_twur  looked in and one of my relations, now in charge, showed me  around, but it was not necessary  ��� for every nook and corner  revived memories of the past.  'The only significant change I noticed was that the stables are  now a workshop, with the motor  vans parked nearby. Incidentally, I was informed that the firm  of Kemp & Sons started by my  grandfather, has now been established for 120 years.  I spent the latter part of my  vacation at Winchester, the city  which I left in 1909 to come to  Canada; Here I stayed with my  sister who has lived there ever  since. It is the ancient capital  of England and a veritable museum of the historic past ��� Roman,   Saxon, Norman. The City  of Alfred the Great and William  the Conqueror.  The Cathedral is the centre of  attraction and it's treasures both  in architecture, music and historic associations, are beyond description. Winchester is now both  ancient and modern with entirely  newsuburban residential and industrial areas and fine well placed new roads.  But I must leave the cities for  the  countryside  ��� which is  as  attractive as ever, especially on a  fine   summer   day.   The   gentle  slopes, the fields divided by well  kept    hedges,    "the    meadows,  groves and streams" as the poet  Wordsworth   observed,   are  still  to be seen and often, as to him  "apparalled   in   celestial   light."  The farm  houses, thatched  cottages and the  occasional castle  or mansion. On the car journey  from   London  to   Winchester,   I  caught a rather distant view of  Windsor Castle which looked entrancing   on  a   beautiful   background.  Travelling by car from Winchester, I saw much of southern  England under ideal weather conditions. Two trips passing  through the New Forest on the  way to Bournemouth, was a thrilling experience. A modern highway running, as it were, through  the historic past. The sturdy  wide spreading oak trees, the delightful villages, with . their  quaint inns and ancient churches.
