He made his remark during  his report of^ *^a^ teanspired  at a meeting called ^to�� ;_|hose^.  : 'interested ��� rii^t^'-fjrn^veErterit;:"''_;  He said ^various : representatives, in an unofficial capacity.  discussed the matter    of    ah  improvement     district     from  Gower Point to the cemetery.  on the one side and north to  Langtiale Creek.  Pros and  cons of the'   subject were    discussed    at    the  meeting     of      representatives  and the upshot of the discussion was that  information be  sought from   Victoria    as    to  whether such an improvement  district could be formed   ;for  the purpose of fire protection  only.

There were differing views  on the matter of roads when  Commisioner Ritchey thought  that present roads should ....be  maintained in better condition  before any further clearing  was done on a big scale.  , Commissioner Crowhurst,  during discussion on the different types of roadways offered the suggestion it might  be a good time now for the  commission to delve into the  possibility of establishing, a  town planning committee with  a view to correlating the  work proposed and any future  road clearance or building  work-in the years to come.  Discussion went even as far  as discussing the possibility of  sidewalks in some sections of  the village but the matter did  definite    con-  not reach any  elusion.  Commissioner B a 11 e n tine  was emphatic in stating  he did not want to see any  increase in taxation for the  provision of hew roads. He  was of the opinion the village  was getting along nicely under its present budget and he  did not think it would be necessary to expand, that budget for the purpose of building roads.  Commissioner* Ballentine's  report on road improvement  was tabled until next meeting.  SEEKS  LARGER. HALL  Believing that a community,  hall of double the capacity of  the present one will be needed within the next five years,  the Pender Community Club  on Monday appointed a building committee to go into the  problem. The possibility of a  basketball team and its sponsorship will be explored.  Members were in favor of a  Regatta, if the requirements  are made more specific.  Odds  on   February  snow  3 to 1  BY [RICHARD   F.   KENNETT  Though January skies were  mostly cloudy and . dull, the  weather as a whole during  the month was generally pleasant with temperatures overly  mild, . and snowfall the least  it has been, for years.  While sunshine was lacking,  most residents will consider  last month as "June in January" compared to " January,  1954 when. the. mercury had  plunged to 12.4 deg. above  zero-, snowfall totalled 36.3  inches, and bitterly cold SCjua-  mish  winds  raged.  January this year was a different, story with rainfall totalling   4.48   inches, while     v/et  snow fell on four days only  and totalled 1.4 inches, combining to make a total precipitation figure of 4.62 inches,  or just about half our normal  share.  January 17 .saw the mercury rise to 48.2 deg. for the  warmest day, while the chilliest day was only 29.2 deg. on  January 10, and there were  only eight  days with  frost.,  Mild and moist weather continues so far in February, but  f"r those who would speculate, the odds are 3 to 1 in  favor cf snow in February,  ���?nd our normal share should  be about six inches. Probably  Mr. Groundhog, disagrees, however.  G. S. Thorvaldson, president of the Canadian Cham-  . bers of Commerce;, and Boards  of Trade across Canada, will  speak in Elphinstone High  School auditorium,' V/ed., Feb.  16. .,_  .    ���; -'- ���  Mr. Thorvaldson will be the  guest of all Sechelt Peninsula  and Powell River Boards of  Trade.  The event will be a dinner  to which everyone and his  wife from Pender Harbour to  Port Mellon is invited.; It is  not often that Gibsons has  the chance to hear a speaker  of. national importance so the  Gibsons Board of Trade regards the event as one deserving wide attention. In view of  the importance of the speaker  the meeting has been thrown  open so that anyone, man or  woman,  can attend,  Credit f Or arranging for  Mr. Thorvaldson to speak    in  C S.

Apart from visits to boards  and chambers, Mr. Thorvaldson will meet with the British  Columbia Regional committee  at luncheon in Vancouver, on  Wed., Feb. 23. This committee  acts in an advisory capacity  in relating B.C.'s viewpoint to  the Canadian Chamber's national policy.  Throughout his B.C. ��� tour,  Mr. Thorvaldson will stress  the need for all citizens to  realize the significance of the  tremendous, developments that  are taking place in this country, pointing out that these  advances are being made under the free enterprise system. "This will be an excellent opportunity to discuss  economic conditions and to  learn at first hand what is going on in B.C." said Mr. Thorvaldson in an interview for  The Coast News. "It also will  be an opportunity to elaborate  on the importance of the  Chamber of Commerce movement in Canada.

At the Sechelt Rod and  Gun, Club's game dinner last  autumn, Lee Straight, one of  the speakers brought up the  point that much of this land  about the lakes was bound to  be sought by speculative and  other outside interests, andi  suggested that in time, though  the residents of the Peninsula  had known of and enjoyed the  lake for many years, they  might some day wake up to  find their access to these waters practically cut off by such  interests.

The move already has*  the approval of the directors.  The monthly meeting of the  directors of the Pender Harbour Credit Union also appointed a committee to carry  on arrangements for a post office at Madeira Park after  correspondence was 'read from-  the postmaster-general of Canada, the chief postal inspector  at Vancouver and other officials, agreeing to a second  Post Office in the Harbour to��  supplement the service, at Irvine's Landing, provided certain conditions were satisfactory. The committee is comprised of W. B. Secular, Jim  Cameron and Jim Tyner.  After the adoption of the  treasurer's report which showed a further increase in assets and the acceptance of  several new members, John  Daly gave the report for his  committee on arrangements  for the annual meeting to be  held in the Community hall  at 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 24,  He reported the super ; film  produced by the Credit Union  National Association, The  King's X, had been secured  and would be shown at the  start of the meeting. The title  referred to the custom in.the  olden days of the King marking an X on the door Of any-  oj-ie-he-h^  from imprisonment for    debt.  After the feature film, there  will be a business session. An  outstanding speaker bn Credit Unions will attend for those  seeking to learn more about  this method of community cooperative saving.

Los Angeles  impresses   Art  The Sunshine Coast Kiwanis Club made arrangements  in advance through the Los.

Thomson,  says he arrived safely, was  taken to a Kiwanian's home,,  where he has his cwn private  suite in this magnificent  home. The owner is manager  of a nation wide advertising  agency. This contact could  mean much  for Art.  Arthur was much impressed by the size of Los Angeles.  1'ne Kiwanis Club in Los Angeles plans to do its best to  assist Arthur.

It was decided that with  school exams after Easter,  there was insufficient time  for Talent Nights, so the committee changed the dates.  There will be no preliminary .nights at Gibsons or Port  Mellon this year. Anyone  wishing to enter is invited to  contact  Mrs.  Wallis   or     Mrs.  and arrange to have their preliminary try-out at Sechelt or  Roberts Creek.  Another change is that of  placing the pre-school open  class at the beginning of the  program, to avoid fatigue for  the young performers.  The clases will be: Pre -  school open; vocal solo, 10  yrs. and under: piano accordion solo, open; pianoforte solo,  10 yrs. and under; also 31 to  14   yrs.;   elocution.,   under     10  yrs.; duets, open; choral  groups, elementary schools;,  vocal solos, 11 to 14 yrs.;:  piano solos, open; vocal solos,..  open; school choirs, open,  school dance groups;, and"  guest   artist?-  There will  be  an announcement  later  giving the    names  of the adjudicat-'-rs for  the finals.

A conference has been called shortly for the purpose of studying all aspects of the  jaew situation.  According to the best municipal authority in this  vicinity the section dealing with the basic grant to each  school district to pay ordinary approved costs above the  seven mill rate in this area, has an immediate and significant bearing. The proposal to pay all approved operating  costs above the amount raised through the seven mill levy  mcught appear benevolent at first glance.  Closer analysis of the operation of this section as  it concerns Gibsons Village reveals there is a possibility of  an approximate ten percent increase in taxation. This situation might also apply throughout the whole school district, too. Under the 1954 assessment an 8 mills tax -produced about $5,065 for school purposes. Under the 1955  new assessment plan, which could mean a 26 percent increase in assessment, the reduced mill rate pf sevej^ percent as laid down by the government would produce about  $5,590, a figure roughly ten percent higher than the 1954  taxation. This kind of a saving as presented by the provincial government is like the Irishman's "raise" ��� one up  and two down.  It would, seem at first reading of the government's  new measure that the effect locally, will be something1 like  this:  (I)". In the village, school taxes on vacant property  may be reduced as much as 20 percent but on' improvements will be increased by 15 percent.'  (2). Outside the  village, "in unorganized territory,  about the same will be true of school taxes. The so-called  provincial tax of ten mills will be the same on vacant property but on improved property the increase will be per-  . Jhaps five percent.  (3). In addition there will be the tax on equipment,  formerly exempt under the old "landlord and tenant" provision. This tax obviously will not be productive locally  and will be more of a nuisance tax.  Apparently grants to municipalities are changed entirely with the various previous tax grants abolished and  replaced by a per capta fixed grant.-In the period 1951-4  the village received an average of $9,987 yearly under the  old grant plan. Under the new plan based on the 1951  census the figure will be $10,108.  The new arrangement has some pleasing features,  and in'view-of the federal proposal to take a census every  five years, can be re-adjusted after each period, instead  of every ten years as formerly. It has the advantage of  being more dependable. It may be argued that it does not  provide* for the municipalities to share in any increase in  the level of provincial business, resulting from a boom,  nor in the dollar business resulting from further inflation.  JBut on the other hand it is a solid anchor to windward in  ease of depressed business conditons, and the painful experience of the "hungry thirties" shows that it is in hard  times that the municipalities are in most need of help.  LETTERS to the EDITOR  By    L.S.J.  DYNAMITE   IN   DEMIJOHNS  Always calling a bbat 'she'  made me conjecture about  other things called she arid  how many times I heard  homebrew called she.      After  prohibition became law-there  was a spate of winemaking  hereabouts and making the  odd visits one- would be asked to come out to the back  and see how 'she' is doing.  My unhappy experience in  this regard made me extremely chary, the taste and ��� the  purging qualities were not the  only  hazard.  *       *       *  It was my lot to see the  windows blown out of a shed  by an exploding demijohn of  chokecherry wine and' the  pits of the cherries had actually made indentations in- the  boards  and stuck   there.  This  Vintner an Englishman had an  antipathy to authority arid" nobody was telling him when  ���he could drink and so on, himself having left the old land  under a cloud. He had everything and anything bottled  and jugged that would distill  alcohol and the floor of this  shed where the blowup occurred was squared with demijohns, all corks' wired down  and contents noted. One spoke  very softly and no foot was  put down carelessly after the  somewhat offhand extolling  of the* virtues in the stuff that  had allowed fermentation to  reach the stage of high explosives.  One must allow that the experimental field of alcohols  in vegetation is a big one,and  chaps like this I think always  had the feeling that through  some "perhaps inadvertent alchemy they would bring forth  some  golden     ambrosia     that  ���  ALONG  SHORE  by  Barrie  Zwicker  Events are taking place today such as a fi ction-writer. of  50 years ago would have shied  away from as too far-fetched.  But the greatest store of  thrilling fiction-is of course,  yc>ur library. Here in Gibsons  a wonderful store of knowledge and entertainment is at  your disposal at the library in  Mr. McKibbin's office.  * * * .;���;  The adult public is;, well  aware of this store according  to custodian Miss Jarvis and  the Saturday librarian Jean  Hague. The disturbing thing  though, is that the juvenile  section of the library is" not  doing well. The truth is, and  it is not strange, that the  young people are riot .using  the books. I say it is not  strange because I've assumed  the readers have  realized the  ���r-  effect of more movies,    more  comic  books,  and TV.  Adults, who p0-siblyi��grew  up with books, and came to  understand their value naturally, may not realize that today an effort must be made  to befriend young persons  with books, and give them a  fair chance to show him or  her what they can do. An  effort  is    needed,    and    now  isn't too soon to start;  #       *       *  It's the responsibility of  anyone who thinks books  worthwhile to recommend  them to any , young person  whenever an opportunity  shows itself. Give books���intelligently chosen ones��� for  birthdays. This is truly casting your bread upon the waters, for such an interest fostered young, you will be  thanked for many times over.  If you do have a chance to  talk books, mention how "the  juvenile library suits children  4 to 18. Some o* the books are  so   interesting   an   adult    will  find himself reading them,-   I  refer for example to two companion   books,   Rockets,     Jets  Guided   Missiles    and    Space  Ships, and By Space Ship    to  the Moon.       If  any  man  can  pick up either of these books  and not read at least a page,  there    is    something      wrong  with him.      These  books  are  fact, varid predictions based", on  fact, and for them to be sitting  on a library shelf not    being  read is nonsense.  I saw Tom Sawyer. It  shouldn't be on the shelf���it  should  always be  on   loan.  Same with King of the  Wind, Smoky by Will James;  Black Lightning, Baker Bill,  Young Mac by Mary Carr,  Country Garage, Flame in the'  Sky and Fox Island. All these  have particular interest for  juveniles of one age or another. - ,  *       *       *  Take Ship Without a Crew,  the story based on; the actual  disappearance of the Mary  Celeste, with all hands aboard,  never solved. A very intriguing story.  I could go. on. I have a list  before me discouragingly interesting of wonderful books  awaiting young  readers.  Won't each of you, in your  own way, do something about  this? I'm keeping in touch  with \ the "librarian, and if  more books aren't taken out,  something more' may have to  be done. Who knows, maybe  what is needed is a kid-burning.  Or a press  gang.  Library ,hours   are  2  Tuesday and  Saturday.  to   4,  Editor: I was particularly  interested in "Along Shore"  by Barrie Zwicker in which  l>e relates how the Gibsons  residents are roused early in  the morning by blasts from  certain ships.  We residents of Selma Park  sympathize wholeheartedly, as  in our case also "The man at  the cord is king and lord, as  he wakes our sleeping town."  Only, it's the man at the controls of the Sechelt Transportation bus who is to blame.  Just why it is necessary for  Jbim to sound great prolonged  xaneous blasts every morning  -about 6:20,   no   one  knows.  In large centres that would  be considered "disturbing the  peace" and wouldn't be allowed. Why should we suffer  -such noise to continue when  "it is absolutely unnecessary?  Let's have more peace and  quietness in our Sunshine  Coast. ��� "Disturbed."  Editor:' In reply to a letter  5n your last edition from a  Mr. L. S. Jackson, I would  like   to point out a  few facts  of which  he seems to be    ig-  norant.  We had no idea that he or  anyone else had . been asked  to carry any "banners" for us  anywhere. We surely should  be very grateful, and deeply  regret that he should be so  disappointed  with   us.  I can assure you that there  has been no "shilly-shallying"  hereabouts, as our Board of  Trade and Mr. Royal Murdoch in particular have been  in close , touch with the B.C.  Power Commission for some  years. However there was a  great deal- of shilly-shally and  delay over the route to be  taken between Sechelt and  Halfmbon Bay. So soon ' as  that was settled, trie wheels  started turning in our direction.  Our Board of Trade arranged for a very efficient  delegation to meet the Premier and his Cabinet, and the  B.C. Power Commission. They  were most kindly and sympathetically received. Since then  necessary roads etc. have been  surveyed and work is proceed  ing apace. Such an undertaking cannot be done in a moment, but I can assure you that  the people of Pender Harbour  are, and have been most cooperative and our BoardV of  1'rade most energetic in the  furtherance  of this project.  As for Mr. Jackson's suggestion that the Board of  Trade carry out an educational campaign, I would like to  point out that the residents of  this district as a whole are  quite intelligent, and cognizant of all the facts and figures. Applications have been,  canvassed aud signed up, and  so far as any "cavilling" goes,  I for one have not heard it or  hoard of it.  As for his reference to  "squawking," could not his  letter be considered as a very  fine  example?

More people  using Library  Library book circulation is  up by 50 percent in Gibsons,  and the one big problem facing the board is that of accommodation, it was reported at  the Library board last Thursday evening. .  The board submitted a report to the Village Commission on the year's activity,  showing total book circulation  as 4,231, divided into fictoin,  3,066; non-fiction, 568; juvenile books, 697. For the six-  and-a-half-months of 1953, the  total circulation was  1,418.  The library owns 489 books  outright. In addition, it receives 140 books from the Travelling Library, which are  changed every four months.  Financially, the library  makes the following brief report: Total receipts (1954),  $814.50; disbursements,  $319.75; balance on hand,  $494.75, which has already  been allotted to the purchase  of more books. Membership  now stands at 85 adults, 42  children.  Library hours are from 2  to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays and  Saturdays.  * The ladies who are    librarians are doing their work vol-,  untarily,    and    the      Library  board expresses its    appreciation  of their work.  might have the secret of everlasting life. If not that, some  mysterious drops that would  reveal the true nature of  Aphrodite. '  Some of the old' chap's  mixtures went cockeyed on  account of his reluctance to  clean anything properly and  the motley swarms of flies,  wasps, and beetles that were  drawn to the shed on that account were legion. In retro-  spect it has crossed my mind  often since why they didn't  make a good "likker"- out of  cider. There were always lots  of apples in season. Anything  to my mind would have been  better than the various strains  of bilge, that usually resulted.  *       *      *  Eventually      the      vintners  changed to brewmasters  with  malt available and cheap bottling rigs and even then they  were not satisfied as it was so  easy t0. empty    raisins,'   figs,  and any oddments" of that nature into the brew. This generally resulted in  a  varied flavor that only prodded    them1  on to trial and  error/Finally  this also caused one to    pick  up a bottle of this stuff with  about the same trepidation as  if   it   were  nitro-glycerine.   It  was no unusual thing to have  the froth hit the ceiling when *  the   cap was lifted.  This was  overcome by opening  it     upside  down    pointing    into    a  bowl and    then,    waiting    till  the froth settled into a liquid.  Even    when    this      Falernian  flub-dub  was  good   it  was     a  work of art to  pour    it    out  without disturbing the inch or  so of grey sludge that,  seeming and according to the pundits  was  a    measure    of    its  LAND ACT  Notice   of  Intention  io   Apply  lo Lease Land....'.   ,  In  Land  Recording  District  of    Vancouver    and      situate  near Wilson Creek.

It is of special interest at  this time when the whole  question of taxes on real pro-  perty_is under review. Along  with * Mrs. Booth's lawyer, Mr.  Graham Ladner, and her  daughter-in-law I have been  negotiating with the government for a year in an attempt  to get compensation for her.  The title which a person receives after buying a delinquent tax property As ironclad. It is one of the most unassailable titles you. can get.  In fact, some people have  been known to deliberately  let their property go up for  tax sale because the original  title had been lost or obscured  in some way. By buying back  their own property they get  a clear title.  * *      *     , ' ���-.  Mrs. Booth, who before "-re-1  marrying, ' was called Mrs.  Peterson, neglected to pay  her taxes on her house from  1952 on..;*. If you do not pay  your provincial taxes your  home or property will be  sold within two. years and  three months from the date  the  tax was due.  The Booth case has people  scurrying to check up on  their  tax  notices.  Mrs. Booth has suffered a  grave inustice. Mrs. Booth,  who is 66 .years old, brought  up her family in that house  and was   looking forward    to  retiring to it.  * *       *  She was unaware that two  sets  of  taxes . were  due.  She had religiously paid  her village taxes all this time  but was unaware of her provincial obligations.  Some time ��� ago she moved  to  Vancouver    and    left    her  it  home in the charge cf her  daughter-in-law, who lived  next door and collected rent  from tenants who had moved  in while she. was away.  The tax sale was discovered when the  new owner    ar<  rived to. demand the rent. By  then it  was too late..  Mrs. Booth ..remarried in  Vancouver and changed her  address. She failed to notify  the government of this. After  the property was sold the tax  collector mailed a registered  letter to the last^ known address of Mrs. Booth. The letter addressed to "Mrs. Peterson" was returned to thie government.  ���'..    ':'���  ,* ���     *      *  The government is very  proud of that fact. You see,  they say that this undelivered  letter is proof that they mailed it; It is also proof that  Mrs. Booth did not get it. But  that did not worry the tax  collector. The Taxation Act  only required him to mail to  to< the last known address.  Mrs. Booth had one year to  get the house back by paying  the $16.83 she owed. Unaware  that the sale had taken place  the year passed and she    lost  her home.  ..���������*���     #���-.*.  To compound the tragedy  Mrs. Booth spent over $1,000  to make improvements to her  home after the date of redemption had gone by. With  borrowed money she repaired  somebody  else's house!  I felt the government would  be sure to grant some kind  of relief to her. So far they  have refused. Both Mr. Bonner and Mr. Bennett have announced that, changes will be  made in the taxation act . to  prevent this happening again  but I do< not believe this will  help Mrs. Booth yery much.

Acting on the premise that  much crime is . preventable,  the booklet through photographs and text, illustrates  many ways in which crime  may be prevented, by improvement of security, in business places and about the  home, and by removal of  temptation. '   '  , Security in stores during  business hours may be increased, says the booklet,  through checking :, frequently  and removing large- amounts  of cash from accessible cash  registers or drawers.

The. show is  carried three times a week  Mon., Wed., and Fri. at 6  p.m. on stations of .the CBC  television network.  Those little green tree air  fresheners in 'a Sechelt Store  have a use that may surprise  you: One of these slipped into the vacuum cleaner, between the paper bag and the  fabric dust bag make cleaning  the rug or floor a new experience. ' There is no dusty odor  thrown out by the vacuum,  and just the faintest suggestion of the scent of the green  tree, which lingers as a faint  freshness in the room for a  few minutes after all the  cleaning is done.  Ever  eat   Tanjelos?      They  are  a new fruit, the  product  of   years    of    experimenting,  trying' to-grow  a satisfactory  tangerine    in    Florida.      The  fruit looks like an overgrown  'Jap'   orange,    peels    like    a  Mandarin,    inside    is    grape-  N fruit colored, and the sections  come apart readily as do Jap  oranges.  The  flavor   is    completely Tahjelo ��� not orange,  grapefruit or  lemon.      It     is  faintly sweet, very juicy, and;  altogether     refreshing:   tv: The  skins  are  artifically    colored,  doubtless for that  'eye-appeal'  of which modern    merchandisers are so conscious. I found  them     a    refreshing    change.  They were on sale at Sechelt  last week.  For new car licenses, and  those odd little bits of paper  one must place "in a conspicuous place inside the vehicle."  Chris's Variety (Shoppe is  ready with two sizes of steering-post license holders. They  will fit any size of gteering  column.  Sechelt Service Store looks  very attractive now with its  new counter arrangement,  and fits groceries, such as vegetables and fruits so attractively packaged in transparent film. The new shopping  system is wonderfully convenient.  Hardware stores are displaying garden tools, seeds  and fertilizers for the early  bird. This mild weather does  send gardeners scurrying for  a good start, and even I  found myself wishing for the  time��� and energy��� to begin, with these sturdy looking implements.  At Lang's Drugs, Ben was  demonstrating a wonderful  buy in an automatically controlled electric blanket, for  there are always chilly nights  to be considered. This is an  attractive rose, with deep satin bindings. It's fully guaranteed, too, and is SCA approved. It's full double-bed size,  and is washable.  If you're emulating the  birds, and building a nest, or  simply re-furbishing the old .  one. try picking the interior  colors with the aid of the  Spectromatic Selector, at C &  ���S Sales. It demonstrates over  300 colors, simply and easily, with small slips for  matching or contrasting hues.  You just can't go wrong with  this system. The paint colors  are a revelation.  Ladies in, Waiting will be  ���happy to know about the  very attractive dresses Tasel-  la Shoppe has on hand. They  are of pleasing pattern and  design, and actually quite  ���Qattering!  "Grandmere had a 'lot of  all right' when it came., to  cooking" observed the chef.  "She learned many cooking  secrets by trying various methods, par example,' not only  the fine flavor but the preservative effects of many spices. They helped to keep cake  and cookies fresh; to preserve  meat, fish, and the condiments  she prepared in her own kitchen/'.' .'���'���_  The Reason Why  "Today we know why spices  prove helpful in food 'preservation and add interesting flavor, chef. Natural spices .contain an anti-oxfdant substance  that deters rancidity', and so  has a preservative^ effect ��� on  salad dressings, as well as on  frozen pork- sausage ���" and  frankfurters and other- foods.  The-spicy flavor' increases' for  several days after preparing,  then maintains its flavor for  the freezer or shelf life of the  product."

To do this, combine 2 c.  minced tart, apple, 1-2 c. minced onion, 4 c. fine-crumbled  enriched bread, 2 tsp. salt,  1-4 tsp. pepper, 1 tsp. sage, 2  tsp. sugar and 2 tbsp. bacon  fat dissolved in 1 c. hot water.  Mound this stuffing in an  oiled baking dish. Over it,  fold.2-strips cracked* pork  spareribs, skin out. Fasten together with poultry pics.

Serve with gravy  made from the pan drippings.  Apple Lemon Snow: Make  up 1 box prepared lemon-flavored gelatin according to instructions, but; use* only 1 1-2  c. boiling water. Place in the  refrigerator about 20 min. or  until beginning  to  thicken.  Beat 2 egg whites until  they stand in peaks. Add the  egg whites and 1-2 c. fine -  grated peeled- raw apple to  the gelatin, and beat until  very light and-'frothy;  Rinse 6 custard cups with  cold' water. Fill with the apple lemon snow; chill about 2  hrs. or until firm. Unmould in  deep sauce dishes. Pour custard sauce around.  Barbecue Sauce from the Chef  This is especially good because it also acts as a glaze; ���  In the order given, mix 1 tsp.  cornstarch, 1-3 c. .cider vinegar, 1 1-2 tsp. Worcestershire  sauce, 1 1-2 tsp. grated onion,  1 crushed peeled section garlic, 1 tsp. salt, 1- 1-2 tsp. sugar,  1 tbsp. chili powder, 1-3 tsp.  powdered mustard, 3 tbsp. tomato ketchup, 6 drops tabasco, 1-2 c. salad oil and 1-2 c.  tomato juice..

SMALLER  PIW.PORTION  OF WORKERS  ON FARMS  In the half-century since  1901 the propQrtion of Canada's male labor .force in agricultural occupations dropped  from almost 46 percent to  less than 20 percent, while  the proportion in manufacturing and mechanical. occupations rose moderately from  about 15 percent to slightly  more than 19 percent. In'  marked contrast, the proportion in transportation, service,  commercial, clerical and logging operations approximately  doubled. The total number of  males in gainful occupations  increased by about 2 1-2 times  agarn  .;.��� Back.in���the. office of the  Union .Store rfor a few days,  Ed Hancock told briefly of  his trip to London last year,  and how much he enjoyed  his stay there.  ��� Of the actual sea journey,  we will have later a full description,  written  by himself.  While in London, Ed worked in Harrod's, one of the  world's famous stores in the  export department. He found  the work fascinating, and did  so well in the few months  that he was promoted, and  on leaving was presented with  a farewell gift. He was told  should he return he might  have his office job back.  The 20 others in the office  were from many nations but  he was the only Canadian.  He found the working people  of'the old land more specialists than   Canadian    workers,  and with quite a different attitude towards their jobs, being more or less permanently  situated in them.  . London was fascinating to  Eddie, with its traffic, its  tubes, the double decked buses, on the upper decks of  which cne might smoke. The  walks, parks and commons  delighted him. He found Piccadilly Circus endlessly interesting, Buckingham Palace cold  and gray, Regency Park delightful.  Ed hopes to write of his activities and amusements in  London, as well as of his  trip. Meantime, he will be at  work on Bo wen Island for the  Union Steamship Company,  coming .occasionally to Se* ���  ohelt.  by Union CoHege of B.C. to  finance its needs in the next  20 years.

CNIB DRIVE  In Gibsons, the 1954 campaign for funds for the CNIB  netted a total of $401.79, a decrease of approximately $100  from last year's total.  John Wood, who was head  of the committee in charge,  states that for the coming season, with -more experience,  it is hoped the campaign will  be at least as successful as in  former years.  The first big step in what  could prove to be the biggest  thing ever attempted for  youth on the Peninsula will  take place in the form of a  lecture and a film Saturday  night at 7:30 in Sechelt Legion Hall.  From the time school is out  in June until it starts in September the youth of this Peninsula are more or less on  their own as there are no  organized sports in which they  can use up  their energy.  This free time can' easily  become the time that young  and carefree minds are led into performing acts, that t may  ruin their future life.  The aims of Little    League  Ball are to . build    character,  *  teach good sportsmanship and  above all to reduce the steady  rise  of juvenile delinquency.  The boys are taught that  winning a game is secondary  to performing in a sportsmanlike manner- and this fact  alone can only do good in  their future life.  The success of Little League  ball 0n the Peninsula is in  -the' hands of the parents of  the prospective players so it  is of vital necessity that a  good crowd of parents and  interested parties from Port  Mellon to Pender Harbour  turnout t0 this first meeting.  The speaker is an organizer  of Little League ball in Vancouver and will be able to  give a clear picture of the  whole thing.-  Team high single game, Penn  Building, 998.

SPORTS  WEEK  BY  CHUCK  TOMPKINS  The Gibsons ��rphans made  it three out of four last Friday  night when they knocked over  the Cougars 39-22 in a game  that was both rough and slow  until the last quarter. Ron  Godfrey of the Orphans was  high man for the evening  with 11 points.  This weekend will be '"a  good one for basketball fans  with the High School Cougars  playing host to Haney oh Friday night and the Orphans  facing the strong Vancouver  Ki-Mount team    on    Saturday,  night.  * *      *  The school boys will really  be trying in this one ,as I understand that Jim Clarkv 'the  Cougars' former coach, is now  coach of the Haney team.  Saturday will see ��� the Orphans really tested as they  meet the team from Ki-Mount  Athletic Club of Vancouver.  This team has always been  noted for its fine shooting as  well as the big men who  score the points. The Orphans, who have.not too much  height to offer in return, will  really have to hustle.  * .. *      *  I have not seen either of  the visiting clubs play so I  will really stick out my neck  and pick the Cougars over  Haney and the Orphans over  Ki-Mount, so dig in fejlas, and  help me keep my string of  correct forecasts.  Just a reminder to the soft-  ball boys: The League meeting is the last Sunday of this  month so it would be wise  for the teams to have their  meetings before then and line  up the business they wish to  bring up.
