Meeting tivp small truck  loads of logs coming out of  Pratt Road I thought of the  long thicket at Once- and was  reasonably sure that was  where the logs were coming  from. ; There is a local saga  concerning this area that fits  in with the title of these men-.  tal meanderings. ; I was ��� not  active in it but I know quite  well some of the characters  who were.

The timber  was patchy which explains  why the old timers would  have none of it and moreover  they had no use for the booming facilities of the outside water which were extremely  chancey.  The "Long Thicket," a  thick growth of Christmas  trees about 1900 A.D. seemed  to divide these areas. It was  1,500 ft. long and from 200  to 400 ft. wide and had been  south of the main highway on seeded by some of the giant  the Pratt Road divided two firs that had been logged pre-  logging spheres    which    were    viously.

He explained how Boards of Trade  esxt make themselves felt in the land, individually,   then  provincial-v and when need be nationally.  This does not apply solely to Boards of Trade. It is  ���^alid in practically every walk of organized life. At  present many municipalities are quite vocal about the new  Assessment act and what they fear might be a bad result  for .them. They could be right and they could be wrong.  However, the government in Victoria is not going placidly  akmg a rosy path, judging from events now taking place.  *y_?ree Canadians" are speaking up whether it is on-muni^  <apal affairs or. affairs of the forests.

A check of my calendar  shows me that the last day of  fitis month is Monday the  38fi��_ 'This means that Friday  ���wri-i bie the 25th. Don't ask me  &ow i know these things.

Now I don't think it's funny. I thir_k it's sad. One of  the things that make me sad  is that my dentist had little,  printed appointment cards  which he. < gives; out. Although  I don't doubt their usefulness,  I know my bill can be approximately $4 extra on> account  of them.  Another thing which makes  me sad is the knowledge that  the latest thing for preparing  a tooth,for filling is the saind-  blast method and my dentist  will just have an ordinary old-  fashioned drill. But he's probably got his eye on one of  those   expensive   sand-blasters.  That'll be another $4,  please.  *      *      ���  Bless    those   dentists     who  will foe coming home with your    have  their chairs situated    in'  choppers in your pocket and  only then will they shell out.  You can envision how you'll  need it too, as the dentist  charges you about S3 to pull  a tooth already studded with  $10 worth of fillings, and  tosses it in the sink. "Get that  back," you say to him sternly,  "I'm putting that under my  pillow tonight."  Most columnists seem to  have been to the dentist several times in their lives, and  each time it has been for them  front of a window where you  can watch a busy street or  something. The last time I  was in a tooth booth all I had,  to hold my attention was a  sign reading "No Cash Trade-  ins  On Your  Old Teeth."  And I have yet another  complaint to make of the drill  mill. Why don't those pretty  receptionist - nurses do more  nursing and less recepting?  One time I had just been  seated iji the chair with one  of these   all-purpose    beauties  said "Hmm. This is the first  time I haven't had to ask a  patient to open his mouth. It's  hanging wide open now." But  I was doing it on purpose. Yesi  How can you say "Ah" and  "Wow" at the same time?  Teeth have been used for  all sorts of underhanded deeds  down through the ages. For  instance my mother always  answers "As old as my tongue  and a little older than my  teeth," when I ask her age. As  a result I'm still not' sure of  it,  not  that she minds.  The toothpaste ads glorify  the pearlies so much that it  makes some of us scared to  open our mouths. This trend  is good for some folks: As  Confushus say: "Any joke  funny to girl with pretty  teeth."  Well, on the 25th, all I can  do while packing my wallet  with as much money as I dare  carry on the streets of Vancouver is hope that my short  stay in the scare chair will be  good for a column. And it  won't be so bad when the  nurse - receptionist says "It's  your turn now; just walk  through the cavity in the  wall'" if I can think of some  of the funny things people  have written about the drill,  the doc, and' the dunner. ���  ducted the sale for them.

Editor: During a recent  week end I visited your Sechelt Peninsula. With a friend  I attended a basketball game  at your High School. The  game itself was very thrilling.  It's not how the game was  played that urged me to  write this letter, but it, was  the very poor support of the  people of Gibsons at that  game.  I understand that it is not  only basketball games but  play-nights, and other student  functions which lack the support of the local public.

It could be. but until recently, drilling interest has been almost exclusively in Alberta.  Alberta not only had promising showings  but its    government    deliberately^  framed its laws  to attract risk capital  and give incentive to make discoveries.  British Columbia lease   laws   were   restrictive and unatientive by comparison  with Alberta's until recent years when  a series of amendments plus Alberta's  great successes encouraged  new development in the Peace River area of B.C.  We now have found o-ie of the greatest reservoirs of natural gas in North  America. Oil is the next objective.  This year,,   it is   estimated;  companies  now   engaged   in   prospecting    in    the  PNrace lUvfer district >f British Columbia for oil and gas are engaged in programmes thai will cost about 950.000,-  000 to complete.

If it succeeds, everyone in British Columbia will feel   the'  effect. For one thing,, an important;.new./  source  of government income, through  royalties and   taxation   will   be   developed by these* risk-takers.

"Freedom" insurance . . . for  peace . . . against aggression.  The opportunities for young  men with the right temperament and intelligence to make  a career in the Army are excellent. As a modern, progressive  organization, the Army is  equipped to offer top rate  schooling and training to  career soldiers. There is a  place in the Canadian Army  for young men who can meet  the challenge..  the members from the government's all-powerful legislative  steamroller. When a member  has been named, he is exposed  . to lots of punishment from a  vengeful government.  It is seldom that you can refuse to retract    a    statement  like the  Lillooet member did  and get away with it.  The. day before, Gordon,  Gibson had suggested in an  evasive manner that bribe's or  campaign funds were being of���-  fered the government in return for very valuable forest  management licenses. When  he was talking, he reminded  me of a skater waltzing  around a hole in the ice, getting awful close but not quite  falling in.  When on the following day  the press linked Gibson's  wandering phrases together  into a flat charge of corruption, the attorney - general,  Mr. Bonner, demanded he  withdraw for imputing the  motives of the government.  The government tried to  bluff the big burly logger  from Lillooet, but they failed.  For a while, the government  was in a tight spot.'-. If they  forced.. GibsOn out, he would  have become a martyr, stumping the province and causing  acute political discomfort at  Victoria. '-.-..  * * 4  However, once out-foxed,  the government quickly rallied by appointing a- commission of enquiry into Gibson's  charges of corruption. r  For 24 hours the government was out on a -long limb,  which was unique ir> B.C.'s  parliamentary history. They  recovered, but only after they  gave-������-.Mr. Gibson what he  wanted.  . ;_t is    interesting    to     note '  ���how  incidents  like   the Booth  case  or. the  Gibson    'naming'  affair, can  point  up  an  injustice or error in law.  Roberts Creek  BY MRS. M. NEWMAN  Members of . the Badminton  Club can wield a brush as  well as a racquet. This fact  has been established by the  restful rose and green, hues  now embellishing the walls,  ceiling, and chairs of the  Community  Hall kitchen.  This group punctuated/- its  games Tuesday night with onslaughts of paint as they  worked with members of the  Hall Board t0 beautify the  building. Ten o'clock coffee  was prepared with difficulty  amid the paint pots and time  out was spent dabbing at  pink paint spots on slacks and  shirts, more turps going into .  the job than into the paint.  An unusual sight last week  was the apparent migration of  a" school of whales of some  kind. The entire Gulf seemed  to team with the,/ aquatic  beasts as they spouted their  way in pairs due south. According t0 one witness, some  of the fins rose 7 feet out of  the water, and the reverberation of the mighty blows of  their tails could be heard for  miles as, they^sped along in  Aptera-like motions. Fortunate  it is that their trip south did  not co-incide with the summer fishing and boating season.  The boys' team, -under the  direction of Mr. IX J. Jones,  Friday won a soccer game,  with Sechelt, 4r0. This makes  3 out of 4 garnes won by this  up and coming. group.  ? Last week the newly formed Cub pack saw five of its'  number invested and . receive  neckerchiefs. The ceremony  will take place for two. more  this week. Including the. four  boy's transferred from the  Wilson Creek gr.oup, the. number of Cubs has reached 12.  The forming of a. Scout group  in the Fall is almost a certainty. Cubmaster Harrold and  Assistant Dick Kennett ���,. are  waiting for the charter to arrive daily.  Returning     from     Nahaimo-  with Mr... E. J. Shaw who vis-  _Tr   _, , ited them th?.Ee> are Mr; and '  W. Christmas of the Colum- ��� Mrs.   Alan White,    guest's* ���'of " .  Marching Mothers, members  of the iPTA, were. the answer  to  an illustrated address    by  Kinsmen Gary Murdock and  Dan Fulton at the regular  PTA -meeting on^Feb. 16. According to Mr. Murdock,  some $15,000 has been spent  in this area alone for treatment, training and rehabilitation of Polio victims. Much of  this amount, he said, would  be repaid, to be used again to  . help  others.  Another guest speaker was  Dr. Don Burnsi, who, under  the provincial health department program, is attending to  the dental needs of pre-school  and young children, with  marked success. Dr. Burns also used films to illustrate his  talk.  Mrs. E. E. Wallis reported  on the Feb. 12 dance and stated a profit of $43 had been  realized. She reminded the  members also that the, VON  Bridge would take place at  the Legion Hall on March" 1,  and that the VON Drive will  start the first week in* May.  In. the drive last year, $462  was collected.  It was voted to support the  High School Scholarship Fund  again this year. It was. voted  also to send delegates to both  Powell River on March 7 and  Nanaimo April 13, 14 and 15.  Mrs. C. F. Haslam - reported;  for the Talent Night Committee and informed members  that entry blanks w6re. to be  obtained at the M and .W  Store. March 11 at the Community Hall will be the night  of the local contest in which  Gibsons will participate.  /'    CHEESE CONSUMED  Domestic, disappearance of  cheeset (in c l'.'u.din g process  cheese) in\/-.Canada in 1953-  worked out at six pounds per  capita, almost as high as that  of Australia and higher than,  that of> New Zealand, which;  produces more cheese than-,  any other. country. > However,.  the United Kingdom' showed  an average of nearly lO  pounds, Denmark 11 (" pounds  and the Netherlands 14.2:  pounds.

The bride's dressmaker suit  was in soft cream tones with  accessories in brown.

Arthur, in' the Kleindale  district, and- around the shores  of Bear Lake.  The carcass of a young  deer.was also found floating  in the water at Garden Bay,  and a similar incident was  reported near Madeira Park  the ether morning.  .   To account    for ; the    deer  found on land; there are eyewitness reports of deers seen  being chased by a pack cf dogs  who -were closing in for    the  kill. The dead deer in, the water wasi according   to  eyewit-  !    nesses,   chased  to  the  water's  edge by  dogs, with the hunted animal finally    taking    to  the   -water,  in      desperation.  Woodsmen  say a    deer    that'  gets into  ice-cold water "is. a  dead deer."  They  get pnemo-  nia, with death following in a  short time.  A well-known    resident    of  the area concerned    said    he  had recently  been  forced    to  shoot a dog he^was very,much  attached    to     "because'   once  they start    chasing    deer    at  nights there's    nothing    more  you can do." Some of the dogs  caught  in   the  act  of chasing  deer during    the    past    year  have been justifiably shot by  citizens,  but  other  dogs  soon  take their place in the packs  which  are ravaging the area.  ^ Trie game warden is reported to nave investigated,    and  the owners  of    certain    dogs  told him their dogs never left  the house at nights. It is    reported a petition is being cir^  dilated in  the'Kleindale area  to go to the game department  to see if action can be taken  in. the matter.  .  In the meantime, many residents of the area suggest the  predator hunter for the Game  Dept., now stationed    in    the  Roberts Creek - Wilson Creek  area and reported to be huht-  Ving^ejpuga^t might t find .an_ ^v,  .  cellent opportunity to    d0    a'  good job in the    area    where,  deer    are    being      ruthlessly  slaughtered by these packs of  dogs,  who,  0nce  they  engage  in the  chase after the young  deer become as much a predatory animal as any cougar.
